He was parking liis porlrriitntpiiii and Innkiirj: alioul llie rnniii with the (jlaiirc of one almiit lo leave it forever, far readier to be to its 'virtues very kind" and to its "faulla a lilt I c lilind" tlian had liecn hi.t wont, while ho had heen it. regular occiipaiii. Now, ns he made ready to depart, he found his heart pollening. Aller nil, tlie lundlady was good old soul sho had suit him up a lunch that very morning, sincohe could not wait for iho ivgular meal, llo l.egan lo think gently ol his fellow-boarder, who had been learning to play the cornel, and as for Jerry, when ho thought of Jerry, ho neUtnlly sighed. Jet ty wits I he landlady's orphan niece, who perlormed llie dunes ol inaid-ol-all-worK, wiln oul I lie usual wages. Iler name was Geraldine (rilder, but tho fine baptismal appellalien did her very litile good, since every one callud her Jerry perpetually. She had been 1 he 0110 bright spot in that diim.v house, wiih her flax en hair, blue eyes, aud bits of bright ribbon; and if one gave her a bunch of violets, when they were sold cheap by theb.'.vs at the fool of the stairs lh.it led lo the Elevated Kadroad, how grateful she wa. How she had read t he books ho had loaned her. She would miss hi books, and there were half a dozen he might as well give her. lie gathered them 1 oget her, being careful not to se lect anything a young girl should not read, and opened the door. Tho object of hi- kind intentions was close al hand, silting half out side the old-fashioned hall window, wliic.li she was polishing. When she saw him beckon fc he lifted it and came in. "Did you call, Mr. Draper f" she aid, advancing, "I thought I heard you." 'I wanted you to say good-bye, , Jerry,'" said Mr. Harrison Draper, taking her little hand. "Don't you know I'm going away ?"' "Y s, sir," said Jerry, in a faint voice. "And you meant to let me go without a word!" asked Diaper. 'Why, I've been here thiee years. You weren't grown up when I came, and now dear me P And he looked down upon Jerry iu the dignity of her sixteen years, aud paused lor want of word. "1 feel a good deal older," said Jerry, sadly. "1 think housework aj:e one." "You should not do hoHsework, Jerrv," said Mr. Draper. "You should sit on a cushion and sew up a seam, and dine upon strawber ries, sugar and cream, l'oor little Jerry 1 " .See here, I've picked out some books for you you like lo read and there' a photocraph of mine. Look at it r.ow and then. Haven't you one to give mo !'' "I only have a lintype, but I'll gel it ii you cate for it." Harrison said he did cure very much, snd Jerry ran for the thing and sol it. "Yon are going lo be a lawyer, Mr. Draper, they tell me,'" she said. And he said they were right. "Willi an office and an office boy and tin boxes and clients !"' asked she. "The office and Ihe tin boxes are certain. Jerry," he said, M he office boy prohr.lile. the clients only pos sible. However, I hope for the liest." KMi. I mil sure, Mr. Draper, that veu will be a very great lawyer, mid confute all oilier," saiJ Jer ry, eniestly. "I shall read all your cae in the t-aiei, and feel 'proud of you."' Were there reallv tears in her eyes? Yes; they shone like drops of dew. ' Young Draper drew his hand kerchief from his pocket and wip ed them away, and kissed the soft, pink cheeks beneath the curling laihe. A little later Mr. Draper wsu shaking hands wuh the other boarders, and receiving n maternal adieu from Mr. Dumpling; and Jerry, with her little iile of books on one arm, and the photograph hidden amongst them, watched him from tlio doorstep. . "I don't olten have n boarder like that," said Mrs. Dumpling. 'A very pleasant fellow," said the other boarders in chorus. "With a talent for music, if he would but cultivate it," said tho cornet student, Jerry said nothing. She carried her irwistiro 'tip Ittrirs. hung the photograph on the wall, aud kiss ed it-that-iiidil before she cried herself to sleep. "How shall I live, knowing I am never to see him again ?'' she said to herself over and over again. The days were weary to her, tho nighls long with grieving. For the firsl lime in her life she broke china and spilled milk and gravy. Mrs. Dumpling scolded her, and she wept. At last no morning the Utile bed was vacant, and a note was pinned lo the pillow, which rend thus : "Dkak Auntik, Y'on say I am no use any longer, and 1 do not think I am. 1 am going out to ser vice. Thank you lor all you have dona for me. Your nfiectionale niece, Ukhaldine On-riKit." "She'll soon geUiicd of that," said Mrs. Dumpling. "Sho'll be back in a week.'' Hut I his limo, at least, Mrs. Dumpling's prophecies failed Jerry did not return. As for young Draper, he hired his office and put up his "shingle." Some ol tho work that falls to young lawyers fell to him; but, properly sneaking, he had yet no clients. Neither would lie have had an ofliee-boy, but for the fact that one presented himself iu a very curious manner. Sittinir at his tlesk one aflernoon, he saw the door open and a shock head of red hair llirwt i'self in. "Mr. Draper V inquired a queer little falsetto voice. "Yes," said Harrison, "come in." The figure advanced. It was that ol a small youth or boy, at tired in a coal with many capes, such as mortal boy never wore be fore, wearing a lall hat. and young though lie was, sporting a pair of blue glasses. "Good evening," he said. Ex cuse mv calling." "Certainly,'' said Diaper. "Glad to fee you ; sit down." The youih took a chair, but for a moment or so said nothing. Al last he uttered the words: "Mr. Draper do you waul an office-boy f I have been told so, nod I have come to apply for the situation." Draper looked at him. "Wages," added the youth, "arc no object lo me. I want lo get a litteidea of law. You'll find me useful. lean make fires, sweep, dust, rub the windows nml co on errands. You go home nt night, don't you V "I go to my uonriling-liouse, said Draper, with a half sigh. "Very well," said Ihe bov. ' I'll sleep on that loungo there. Have all nice tor you when yon get around. You needn't hurry so mnming". You'll find me useful, I assure you. My object is lo pick t:p law." . . Diaper laughed. "What's your name V ho acked "Jeremiah Pike. I'm from Svuan," replied the boy, "and I'm right smart when you come lo knowe me." He looked about him, with a queer little motion of bolh hands. "I5et you'll find me useful," lie said. "I believe I'll try you," said Draper, "but I enn't give you more than two dollars a week." "Thank you," said Jerry Pike. "111 start ia at once, il you don'l mind." Draper, saving to himself that there was not much lo steal, nod dec", and the boy took off I, is hat, permitting his shock of red hair lo fly nut in all direr! .ons. as if it had been electrified ; brought from out side the door (where he had left it) a bundle and reiire i lo a corner, whence he presently re appeared, wearing (lie lonj linen fjantiei.t thallhetidy butcher dona when behind his si all it was evidently bis idea ol an office coal and eu. tprpd ii non bin dillie.

Uul wlieth ler he "picked up" any law is J doubt ful. However, young Draper liked him, and as him business in creased he really needed some one in the oluce, an. I Jerry I'ike re mained. Sometimes Draper talk ed to the boy in idle times. Jerry liked thai; he would sit listening as long as ihe other chose lo talk. There was no other to contidein, and Draper now and then spoke of his law studies, and the shabby boarding-hr.ube, and even of Ger aldine. One day . Jerry asked a question. "But she wasn't the sort of girl for you, Mr. Draper, was she?" j "She w.'H a mere child," said! Draper, "with a child's feelings. A j little sistar, Jerry. Don't speak of her again in that way." "No, sir," suid Jerry. And he never did. Draper never knew how little the lad had to eat, or how long it was belore he saved up enough to buy a pair of shoes. But lie was there still when Dra per gained his first important, case, and knew that he had made his name. lie had also the satisfac tion of feeling that he had defend ed an honest man against a rogue, assisted tho right lo be the might, and carried out poetical justice for once-in-a way. He had been com plimented, he had received large fees-; he was bragging of it a little to Jerry Pike, in the ollice in the twilight, when the door opened and a man entered. "You are Mr. Harrison Draper?" he asked, curtly. "The same," said Harrison. You are the man, then, that has ruined my brother," said the stran ger, "1 am Jim Magee. 1 only got here from California to day to lind that your palaver has made a beg g;ir of my brother and sent him to prison, liy God, you shall pav for it 1" "1 pleaded my client s cause who had justice on his side," said Draper. "I am sorry for you, sir, but-" "I don't want your sorrow,"' said the man, stepping back a pace. The next instant the report of a pistol filled the office, but in the same second Jerrv I'ike had Hung himself before Draper, wilh his arms around his neck. Hot blood wss dripping over the young law- ver's hands, but it was not his own. The assailant fled, the office was filled Willi n crowd of strangers. Lights were lit. Draper lifted in his arms the now limp and help less form ol Ihe boor boy. "Call a doctor, some one," he cried, as he laid him on a lounge, "and leave the ollice, eyery one of you." A policeman helped him to clear the room. 1 wo oihers had in the meanwhile captured Jim Magee; and Draper, trembling and horri fied, bent over tho beina who had saved his life at the cost ol her own. Yes, her own- for as he lif'ed the light figure the wig fell off",' a wom-in's hair, uncoiled, dropped over his arm, against which rested a woman's torm, and lying there before him, divested of Ihe blue spectacles, ihe queer office coal unfastened at the throat, the collarlhrown away, Draper be held Ihe form of (ieraldine Gilder poor, lillle, flaxen-haired Jerry and marveled that he h.id not long ago penetrated the odd dis guise sue liau worn ; aim miner-1 sland why she hsdeomo to him.

I shall die, I suppose, but I do nol care, lor if I live I mu-t go away, and vouwill always think me bold; but I could not help it, dear.

Montgomery, the negro delegate,, addressed tho convention to-day in support of the committee report nnd proved JrimselJ by far the ablest man of his race who lias achieved prominence in Ihis State for years, being easily equal lo John R. Lynch and B. K. Bruce. He said in part: "Before the trust of becoming a member of this honorable body was conferred upon me by my constituents, I fully slated to ihein my conviction that the work of this convention, in order to be successful, must restrict tho fran chise by prescribing such qualify cations for voters as would reduce Ihe negro vote considerably below tbe white vote of Ihe State. I en tertained the same opinion Iheit that I hold now, that the Federal Congre.-s will interpose no objec tions, provided, such restrictions are honestly imposed lor ine pur pose of bringing about a fair solu' lion of Ihe great problem now con fronting the people of this State." The speaker wont on lo say how much of the wealth and civiliza' tion of the South was due to the labor of tbe colored man. He re ferred lo Ihe loyalty of the negro race lo Ihe Southern people throughout llie war and concluded that branch ot his subject by say ing: "It is bat justice lo my racer that I should recall these affecting memories upon this floor to-day. My mission here is to bridge the chasm that has been widening and deepening for a generation ; to di vert the maelstrom that threatens destruction to you and yours,whilo it promises no enduring prosperity to me nnd mine. The fortunes of war tore asunder our relations as they had existed in greater or less degree lor iwn centuries. mo master nnd slave of yesterday met to-day upon a plane of equality, possessed of the same rights and privileges under the common law of the land. Your proud nature rebelled and you turned from the scene in disgust. At this juncture an alien appeared and claimed the confidence which people in our condition at that lime must need place in some superior guiding hand. The alien sought nnd ob tained our confidence, but not our affections. That, Mr. President, would remain wiih you and yours till the memories ot the traditions of former generations shall become obliterated. We are well aware (hat our race has has not yet at tained the high plane of moral, intellectual and political excel lence common to yours, but it is our privilege to press onward and upward. Il is a lack of confidence iu tiny adjustment of our political economy proposed by you that keens UDrace solidilv. Wilhout a restoration of confidence, I can set no solulion of this great problem. The speaker then, declared 111s belief that the report of the fran chise committee is the safest meas ure for the convention to adoot. He continued ; "A w ail conies from thousands of hearts in mute appeal to the con vention. This bill is to restrict. 124.334 negro voters and 11,88!) whiles, giving a net white majority of 40,451. Such I believe to be Ihe virtual ellect of the measures reported by ihe committee, Mr. President, it is a feaiTnl sacrifice laid upon Ihe altar of liberty. Many of these men you seek to disfranchise I know personally. Their hearts are os true as steel. Many are soldiers who have slood amidst the smoke ol bailie on bloody fields in defense ol the flag which every American proudly hails as the ensign of freedom and tho talisman of protection in all civilized lands. I wish to say to my people, we have not taken away vour high privilege, but only lifted it lo a higher plane, ana ex alted Ihe slaiion of the great American birthright. II ia due us. that I here should be some expres sion on the part of Ihis great body indicating Ihatlhe price is coi reel ; that Ihe contract is ratified and ac cepted; that Ihe race problem shall become a thing of the past, and not lo vex and alarm the pub lic; that the t" great races shall peacefully Irayel side by side, each mutually assisting Ihe other lo mount higher and higl.er in Iho scale of human progress."
