and, as the door closed upon her, and

seemed to be growing from me were
bridged nvr r Teddy was still my boy.

of taking, I should be where be Is'

like one against your name father
couldn't stand that;' and, like a cow

for my crime; but if he has suffered
one-hundredth part what I have all
these years, I pity him, I pity him!
Oh I mother, speak to me; say you for

Tom; my poor Tom!' And then I
kissed Teddy, and said: 'I do forgive
you, dear; and God will, too. for He
has seen your suffering;' and then
Teddy fell back on the pillows and
smiled, and I was left alone.

for the town where Tom was, with a
heart half sad, half glad. It was hard
to lose "Teddy, to know be had not
been the boy I had always believed
him; but to have Tom home again

feel glad. So I went to tbe prison,
and asked for Tom. 'Isn't he with

been sentenced; but where is he?' 'I
supposed he'd gone home., Henry,' ha

And in a few minutes No. 17 came io;
and, when I saw him, I couldn't keep
the tears back for pity, and the
thought of my Tom looking just like
him. And the superintendent said:
'There, there, my dear lady, we'll find
your boy if we can. Bussell, you and
Tom Haines were friends; can you tell
us his whereabouts? 'Ko. sir; all he
