When tbe last olish li id beeu given and be looked up, Stubby ai discovered sitting dis consolately on the curb ne.ir by, appar ently witb no nmbition to catcli liis elnre of tlie btminees. " Sav, Bob, Stubby wants to sell his kit,' cfuled No. 2. "Naw," answered Bob.iniTedulously. ' Wbat's up? Got a ruise?" Stubby sbook bis hea 1. " G jin' West?-' Another sbake, tuore deolded still. " It'l none o' thcm ibings, Bob. It's sotnethiu' clse," answered Stubby, in sucb a forlorn, eolcmn tone as betokeued a crisis of sonie sort. "lle's a goin' up on Flftb avenue to live in one o' Vanderbilt's houses," said I5en. " Bout-b'ackin' aiu't fashionable up there. Come, give il away, Stubby, and we'll bave a racket on't. Will you let us ride onet in a wbile on the dri ver's seat ?'' Stubby was entlrely unmoved by this pleaiaotry, and as custoruers appeared, aud Bob aud Bjn eaeh found a job, leaviug S:ubby alone on the curb, they did nol see tbat he tuade wry faces al the drinking fountain, while sorae tcars traced a passage down thegrimy clieeks. Left alone, he took a soiledbit of paper froni his pocket and chewed a pencil end and began writlug slowly. He wasu't as used to a pencil as to a black ing brjsh, evldently, and toiled away over his work so absorbcd as not to see Bob and Ben stealing up bcbind bim. Jt must be owned tbat their etiquette waa limited, aud they had no polite tcruples aboul liuding out 8tubby8 sc cret. The crowd was p.issing with hur rying, busy fcel, and Stubby was iutent on bis bit of paper and pencil. He did not ruind at all tbat unblacked boots were passing, and did not kuow of the two pairs of koen eyes peerlng over his shoulders. This is wbat they rcad: " IiiK Minnio llilfy up in Whitcoml, street witli a or throat. Funeral to mor row. Sucli is tlie kingdoni of Heaven. " Stubby Kilby." Bob and Ben lookcd at each other and stob; quietly away with solemu faces. ' It's his sister," whispered Ben; " she was awful j )lly." "SUosuld papers for bim when he was laid up witb a sore foot." " Wiah't I h.tdn't eaid nothing to bim." " Wish't 1'd took his place last night. Ile said Miu wns sick, and I told bim she was al'ys sick; he'd better stick to tbat corner or he'd bust his trade." "Did you see be did'nt take no cigar ette with the rcst of us, an' we poked at hlm? When he tbought we wasn't lookin', he boutzht a oransrc and put it in bis pocket. Twas for beras sure as you're Bob an' I'm Ben." Bob sal down on his box and grew thoughtful. Ben was perched on tbe railing tbat led down Into a cellar-way. "Say, Ben, what 'd Stubby want to sell Ira kit for?" " Dun no." " I do. Bet you he wauted a bou fpuet for Min. He come straight frotu tbe Hower-staud way, and asked me b w mucb a big bouquet'd come to, if it had white llowcrs in it sccb as they had forcofflns. I told bim I warn't in tbc cofflu business. Wisb I hadn't." "Tuey'll plant her in the pottcr's Beld." niused Ben Bolemnly, " an' tbc mWlonary'll read the Bible over her." "They won't be no one to wait for Stubby uigbts, or tie the tippet aivund his throat. She did tbat nigbt last win ter when he was tryin' to sell Iub Ntwse$ and folks was oi co'.d to stop an' buy. He was tbat hoarse tbat he couldn'l call his paper 8. She called 'cni. 'Twas her tippet. Tney went snucks on everything just 's if she warn't a girl." 'Say, Bob, I wish't it eould be a good funeral, just as if her ma'um didn't drink. Atween you an' me, Bob, I bet Stubby'd like it to be a good funeral. Stubby al'ys did want to be like other folks, and to act jest's if his raa'am warn't tire l out o' tbe salo:ms deader drunk'n a door uail." " Uobby, let's have a good funeral. The boys'll chip in fer Stubby. We'll go 'tbout tobacco to-day." There was a jlngllng of loose coins in big pockets, while each boy inquired into his financial condition. " Bob." "Hey?" "Can yer get through that psalm tune we used to eing 'Shall We Gathei?' " " My, yes," answered Bob, " just you hear" launcbing into a variatcd and spirited rendering of "Shall We Gather at tbe Kiver?" "I've knowed it ever since I was boro." " It's awful pretty, B b, and Stubby liked it,an' if it is a good funeral, like other folks', they ought to bave psalm tunes. They al'ys do to good fuuer als.'' " I tell ye: If the mish. is agreeable to it we'll Biug, 'Shall We Gather ' all we boys. I know tbe whole throo verses." Ii was avery unpivteniious gathering on Whitcomb s'reet the ncxtafternoon. It happeued to be at a time of day when the sun sh.-,ne in, for a little while, through thedingy windows, and warmed the narrow, gloomy court. The neigh bors had made an attempt toward clean liness, and Mu'am Kiley was actually sobor, sittinR next Stubby, witb a b ig gard face and bloodshot eyes. Sotne one had loaned her a clean gown, and she felt strangc iu it, somelnw, aud almoRt afraid the missionary had comc to anest her. She told Suibby she was muddled in her head and wantcd some thlng to steady her from being shaky, l)tit Siubby laid, sternly: "No, ma'am; not a drop till they "carry her away. Shei had tbat kind o' things al'ys, but wlien tlie last llmt conics, it's goin' to be a good. clean place for her. 1 prom ised Min 'twould bc a good, clean place for folks to come, and nobo.ly brought in from lyin' in the strect to cuimc and Bwear al her aftcr ehe was dead." Aud ma'am cricd aliitlc and said "it was hard 'nough to have dead children, 'tbout having livin' ildren turnin' agin her." But Stubby showed no sigm of yielding. So there she sat between tha boy, with flushed cbeeks and sad, Btaring eyea, and the white face of her little dausrhter, sobor aud awc-3truek, and actually wiahing in a dull groping way that she had been a better mother to her children. Tramp, tramp, tramp. Something was comin'. Stubby won dcred wbat it was. The trampiug bc canic uncertaiu, Btumbling upthesteps. The misiouary was a little iaipatient to begin and get away, but Stu')by said: " No. Hold on a niinute." He thought he knew who it was wbo wore those big biots. In tbey came, two by two, boot-blacks and news-boys, wiih soleiun, respjctful, clean facdB. Bob and Ben led tbc way, and borc aloft with no little show of pride a big bouquet of largc white llowers, which they laid on the cofli l, iuat above the thin, pinched bands of the little girl, wbo they remembered had tied the tip pet round her brother'B ueck on that fearful wintcr's night. They did it with au air that would seem to impart dignity to thc occasion, as being some thing worthy theirdcopest consideralion and respect. Somehow, those delicate camellias and asters wrouht a wouder ful change in the very atmos)bere of that stuffy little room. Tue tnissionary's voice grew genth and tender, S'.ubby's head sank heavily upin his chcst, wbile hispcnt-up bcarl relicved itself in hcal ing tears. The blear-eyed mother could only sob in heart-broken cries, "Forgiveme; forgive me." And the little scattering of neighbors grew re spoctfully atteutive, and wishcd tbey had been raore kind to little Min and Stubby and tbeir mother. The mis sionary read from the B.ble abjut the beautiful city, and talked just a little while about Minnie and thc better country to which she had gone. And then when he sat down B jb whispsre.l in an audible voice tbat if 'twas agrec-abl-j to hi'n, the brys'd like to sing "Shall We (iather," sjeing they all knew her. Tbe missionary nodd jd a consent and Bobby pitched the tune, a little croaky at Drs'., but soou loud aud clear, and they sang through tbe " hull three verses." The song floated out the dingy windows,out iuto thcnairjw, dirty court. Some jiassers-by, worricd shop-girls, stopped a minute to listen to sucb unusual souuds from thaoi I h use, and staid until the song was tiuished. Two women quarreling in the court grew quiet before the lmty boys' voices singiug " Shall We Gather at the Kiver ?" " Hark!" thev laid, " they're eiuging for little Min."" When it was over they carrled her away, and the boys ircut out ou tlie strect to cry tbeir papers and boot blacking as lustily as ever, little drc.im ing (ihcy were only rasrgcd streetboys) that they had brought healing an 1 com fort and a bit of gospel along with Stubby's bouquet, into wickcd, cro jkcd, disbeartened Wnitcomb street that day.

It came to be painted in this wiae: Mr. I'elbautc, a rich business niau with a t iste for art, found Mcissonier at w rk iu his sttidio on one of his microscopic cauvasts. " What does it represent?'' he asked. " A military subject, to wblch 1 wi;l give thc tit!e '1SM.'" " Your subject is very great, and you r canvaa is vcry small, M. Meissonler," said Delhante. " Why do you not palnt a larger picture?" " 1 have lai 1 it in small for two reasons: lirst, bccause that is my style of nainting; second, because, to speak openly, I nced moncy. I work slowly, and am able to finisb" a little picture mucb sooner tban a large one." " So you need money. Wcll, paint my portrait. Wbat will it cost?'' "Five tbousand dolUrs." Delhante drew out his purse, an 1 laid the monev on the table. " Now, I wisb also for myself the picture '1814,'" he con tiuued, " but on tbe condition that you do it on a larger canvas." S irac time later, when tbe portrait was completed, Meissouier showed his patron tbe out linei of anew '1814,' with the question, "Is that large cnoujb for you?" "JuBt right. What will it cost?" "Fourteen tbousand dollars." "All rigbt: there is balf the j)rice." The picture was painted, paid for and de livered, and in 1804 was exhlblted in tbe Salon. An Englishman offered !?00,000 for it, but Delhante beld b ick. Vanderbilt incre ised it to 180,000, yet f'ailed to Becure the picture. Fiually, M. B igue, a connoisaeur, got it for 8100,000, and, after keapin,' it iu his possession for one day, made the famous sale of it to M. Chauchard for $ 150,000. This was th i first time a great paiutcr had seon with bis own eyes sucb a tri uraph of bis art. Those wbo have ap proached most closely his bucccbb were Munkac.y, with his "Chrisl Hofore Pilate," which sold for 8100 000, Mlllet with his " Angelus," for which 81211,000 was paid, and Murillo, witb his " Ascen sion," $180,000, GRATIFTINQ to Ar.L.
