"Well r et, Bob, come with me,
I was just thiiiking of you, and
wishing that I would meet you."
"But I can't comie now, Josepll,
I promised Ned ann Ton to meet
them at the bridge at io o'clock."
'Yes, but I want you worse than
they do. What are you going to
do at the bridge, Bob?"
"Oh, you are such a 'gooddie'
that you would be shocked if I
should tell you, Joseph."
"I'll tell you what I'll do, Bob,
I will go with you to the bridge to
meet Ned and Tom if you all will
come back with ie."
"But they don't wvant you, Jo
seph, we could not do what we in
tended to if you was with us, so
you had better let me go by my
"Well if you won't let me go
I'll tell you what I wanted with
you-and Ned and Tom too if they
will come-several of the boys are
going to meet around at my home
at one o'lock and I wanted you es
pecially to collie."
"Now, that is good of you, Jo
sephi, I would not dare ask the
boys to my house because they
would not let me."
"I have a room to my self, Bob,
and may ask whom I please, so we
behave ourselves. And now promise
me that you will conime."
",Well, I don't know," said Bob.
Joseph left him and Bob went oil
to the bridge. Ned and Tom were
waiting for him.
"What's up, Bob? You never
kept us waiting before," said both
of them at once.
"I ilet one of the boys and stop
ped to talk to him," said Bob.
"Come on now or we will be too
late, boys," cried Ned. "I-t's
about time for the old ian to comie
along, and if we don't hurry he
will catch us, I have the twine all
ready, imyl but won't lie yell."
"Say, boys, I kinder think-I
believ-'-" stammered Bob.
"Oh, what's the natt - with
you, Bob, I did not know oefore
that you was 'chickenhearted." '
"Neither am I, boys, but since I
collie to think of it, it would be
mean in us to hurt the old nan,
just for us to laugh at."
"He'll never know who stretched
the twine across the bridge, and
w'll not see it until lie falls-lhe
can't see very well anyhow-and
we wvill be hid and see the fun,''
ha! ha! ! laughed Tom.
"WXell, boys, you can do it if you
wanlt to, but I wvill not help,'' said
Bob1, tuirinig arounid and walkinig
''What's got iinto Bob do you
reckon, Ned, I never saw him like
that before, lie was always ready
for any mischlief,'" said Trom.
"W\ell come on and let us fix the
string, my! but we are too late this
time for I see the old chap com
ing,'' so they walked in the oppo
site direction as innocently as if
they had not thought of hurting a
poor old man.
At one o'clock the boys began to
arrive at Joseph's room, but Bob
did not come. The usual crowd
had gathered and they wvere about
to begin their reading when some
one came timidly ini at the door.
Joseph 'glanicing uip saw him and
stepping forward, grasped himi by
the hland, saying, "w~elcome, Bob.
I am so glad you came. Boys, this
is Bob Flemming amid he will here
after be one of our numiber, won't
"'I don't know what you are driv
ing at, Joseph, so I can't promise,"
"Conic in and see for yoursef
then we will have your answer,"
After all were seated, John, one
of the largest boys, wvent forward
and turned around so as to face the
crowd and began to read from the
first chapter of St. John: ''And
looking upon Jesus as he walked lie
saith, behold the Lamb of God!
And the t no disciples hleard him
speak, and they followved Jesus * *
They said unto him, Master where
dIwellest thou? He saith unto them.
Come and see * * One of the two
which followed him was Andrew,
Simon Peter's brother. HeI first
findeth his brother Simon * * and
he brought him to Jesus. The day
following Jesus wvould go forth into
Gallihee and findeth Philip and
saIth unto him, follow me. Philipn
findeth Nathanael and said unto
him, we have found Jesus of Naza
reth. And Nathannel said unto
him can any good thing come out
of Nazareth? Philip said unto him,
come and see." After the reading
John said "we have read this spe
cial selection for the benefit of our
nev member, as it explains why we
have met this afternoon. Our motto
is, '1c findeth his brother and say
eth unto him, come and see.' We
meet here at one o'clock each Sab
bath and read a portion of the Bible
and talk about it. Each boy tries
to get some other boy to come and
see for himself, and we are gl-d for
others to join us and take part in
our readings. We hope in this way
to get more familiar with the
Scriptures and persuade other boys
to !,pend an hour with us that would
otherwise be spent in nischief.''
Bob took this last to himself, and
lie resolved then and there to at
tend regularly and to try to get
Ned and Tom to coine. Nothing
was required of him, but to come
and listen to others read, unless lie
wanted to read some particular
passage himself, then lie would
make it known, and some day
would be appointed to hear him
''I wonder what's become of
Bob, I never see him now-a-days,"
said Ned oue Sabbath a week or
"Oh! yonder he comes now,"
"Why, old boy, where have you
been and where are you going
now?'' both of the boys asked to
"Come and see," said Bob.
So both of them went with Bob,
and they, too, became members of
th. Unique Society. In this way
the number increased, and after
awhile they went to Sabbath School
and most of them became members
of the church and made good, use

Rheumatic pains are the cries of protest
and diistress from tortured muscles, aching

been poisoned by the accumulation of
waste matter in the system, andi can no

feels the effect of this acid poison ; and
not until the blood has been purified and

the aches and pains ocase.

prisoners overpowered thei guards,

up from his meal, he saw it steam
