A sharp wind was blowing and j
tlio sky was overhung by heavy i
t-iouds People wore hurrying I
to and fro along the crowded
streets. At tlieir accustomed
place on tlio corner sat Pat
O'Neil and liis large brown collie I
In Duke's moutli was held a
well worn cap which at one time
no doubt belonged to some hap
py, rollicking boy. Pat's be
loved violin was raised to his
shoulders and the poor blind
man was making a feeble at
tempt to draw forth from it the
music it possessed. Hut. his
lingers were still and cold and
his efforts were all in vain.
All morning, since early dawn,
lie and the dogMiad sat there.
11 it still with all his efforts no
stray pennies had found their
wav into the cap the dog hold
for that purpose. For three
days the two of them had gone

The violin slipped from bis
hand and his head dropped to
his chest. It seein.ed ;.h if no
one had noticed him, but just as
the violin landed with a thud
on the pavement a hand was
placed on his shoulder.
Pat lifted his head and his
unseeing eyes seemed to search
out the stranger. The man
spoke, "Give me the .violin and I
will play," lie said. Pat made
no objections and asked
TOMMY KIT'S DREAM.
MllS. TARRY felt highly Insulted
one morning when she went In
to the burn and found live traps
placed nenr holes where the mice
lived. "The very Ideu," said Mrs.
Tubby to her four kittens, "Just as If
I could not nttend to- this without
these traps around.
"Children, I want you to pay strict
.attention to what I say, for you ure
now old enough to help, and it may
be that I have given more time to
playing with you than to my work.
Now you must help. I want each
of you to watch near one of these
traps and when a mouse runs out of
Its homo don't let him get Into the
trap CATCH .HIM."
After telling her children this, Mrs.
Tabby sat down to watch near the
llfth trap herself and soon all were
so busy watching for n mouse that
liey forgot each other.
Tommy Kit, however, grew tired of
watching and after staring hard a

long time at the holu he was to watch
he grew sleepy and, curling up on the
floor, soon was fust asleep.
Tommy Kit had the mouse on his
mind, though, and so he dreamed
about mice, and In his dream ho
thought two fat mice ran out of the
hole he was set to watch. Up jumped
Tommy Kit and pounced upon them,
catching a mouse In each paw.
"I guess nono of the others will be
ss smart as I urn," dreamed Tommy
Kit. "I'll run right off to mother and
show her what a smart son she has."
"PUCK!" Tommy Kit opened ids
eyes and thero In the trap was
a mouse, and at the sound his broth
el nnd mother turned and looked.
Tommy felt very much ashamed, for
there was not a mouse In the other
"Why did you let him get past
you?" scolded his mother. "Your
brothers have each caught one. I am
ashamed that a child of mine should
be so stupid."
"Hut I did catch two," said Tom
my Kit, not quite sure he had dreamed
II. "I bad one In each paw when the
trap clicked. I could not catch three,
mother, now could I, for I have only
two front paws?"
"Two mice at the same time!" ex
claimed his mother.
Tommy Kit was now wide awake.
"I I guess I dreamed It," he said,
"f dreamed I cuught two mice, one In
each paw, and I was Just going to
show them to you when the trap
Mrs. Tabby quickly boxed her son
on the ear. "You fell asleep, did
you?" she said. "Now you sit here
and catch two mice before you get a
drop of milk."
Off trotted Mrs. Tabby with her
other children, while Tommy sat sad
ly Matching the hole. Out ran three
mice nnd Tommy ran after them. He
caught one and then seeing the other
billing behind a barrel he quickly
went after that, while a third was so
frightened he ran right Into the trap.
"I could tint help It mother," ex
claimed Tommy Kit, as he proudly dis
played the mice.
"That Is all traps are good for,"
said Mrs. Tabby, "to catch the third
mouse while you aro chasing two,
and now you children must catcli two
mice and drive the third Into a trap.
We will soon clear this place and he
rid of these Insulting traps as well."
Hut It was not loig before all the
kittens were sprawled out in the sun
fust asleep, for they had cleared the
mice from the barn; but Tommy, It
he bail any more dreams, did not tell
them to his mother.

I raised the violin to his shoulders
and played. And how he did
I play. Tin violin spoke as it had
never sp ike before, A crowd
of people gathered about him.
Ihe cao became heavy with
coins and not only pennies were
dropped into it but dollars as
well. Even Duke growled at
the great weight of it. Pat sat
with hands clasped and face
glowing, even his sunken eyes
seemed to bo lighted by some
unseen force. "It is the great
violinist," he heard some one
remark close by his side.
At last the man stopped play
ing and handed the violin to Pat.
Pat's hands 'were shaking and
his e.ye filled wit.li tears as he
took the violin. "Thank ye, my
good man," he said, "Sure an'
the Lord will bless ye," "You're
welcome," was all the man said,
and placing a live dollar bill in
Ihe overllowing cap, he disap
peaied among the crowd as sud
denly as ho had appeared.
And so through the kindness
of a n ited man Pat and Duke
wore lifted far above the means
of want for many days -to come.
