Years passed by, durinr a11 of which
Tom had looked in vain for his early
friend, the stranger. In his timid awk
wardness, he had not thought to ask the
name of his benefactor, and the only
opportunity to do so had been lost. Ag
Well, years slid away, and Tom was
elected member of Congress from the
very county where he spent his st sug- of
gling boyhood. 4
He went to Washington, not in cow- chi

always drove his arrows home to the
mark. P .
One day there-appeared in the Hon.e 24
the venerable form of an ex-member,
whom all present delighthed to honor.
It needed but one glance at the genial re
face for Tom to recognize in him the th
river of the Latin trammar.
'" He had come," he said, "to listen
to the gentleman who had so manfully h_
defended the right, and to wish him n
" If," said Tom, with his old modesty, In
"it has been my good fortune to do any
thing for our country in the hour of
her peril, I owe my ability to do so, in
a greatmeasure, to yourself."'
"To me!" echoed the astonished sen- ya
tleman: "to mel I do not recollect
ever having had the pleasure of meeting
you before in my life."
Ah. sir, have you forgotten, then, Ti
the little school-boy among the hills of
New Hampshire, to whom you so kindly I
sold a Latin grammar!?'"
The gentleman mused.
"fold-sold a Latin grammar! Now
that you recall the incident, I do recol- a
lect a little fellow who interested me, t
and to whom I gave some school books "
"Well, sir I am that boy. You told

The modelIhat he exhibits consists of i
a pair of hollow metal wheels, four feet
in diameter, which revolve on the same
axis. but In opposite directions. The
moving power is nine metal balls placed
within the wheels so as to bear the rim
down at first, and then gravitate toward '
the axis, where a side groove runs the
balls of to a grooved radius of the wheel
revolving i the oppote directio.
Four balls were pla in the grooved a
radi of the fi wheel and four in the
radi of the second, aend when the mo

ball was added, to give additional power.
To the axles of the wheels, which is also
