Who Joe was, wherj ha caina from in the
morning, where ho went at night, inter
ested neither Sunpsom & Sturges nor
fiiKias. ino latter nail, one evening,
inviterl him out to witness tha pres;iitatiou
of that glory of tho dram i, "M. K. of
C. Exposed," to bo lollow'ed bv
"the side-splitting farce of "Cairo Quaran
tine;'" but Joe had politely declined, mur
muring something about other duties that
detained him at h iuu, Thereupon, Filkins
had lifted his eyebrows, and mndj no mor ;
advances. He had never found young men
with "duties" congenial companions.
By 10:110, New Year's morning, Job had
completed his marketing among the, shops
aud stalls on Eighth street, and, with his
basket swung on his arm, had begun trudg
ing homeward. Ho kept a sharp wr.tch, as
waa his wont, to lull and to right, to ses if
there was anything ho could do for any
body. When ons is on tho lookout for
something of that nature, something gener
crally tnrns up, nnd it was hard f n to eleven
when Joo turned into that sloppy, decayed
old street, which ho had turned into reg-
larly every night since ho had been in Sur
Hu was growing dreadfully tired of that
street. It wasn't a busy street. Nothing
ever seemed to stir in it, except tired men
and woman, going out and coining in from
labor. Nothing over went up on it; noth
ing ever camo down. The old wooden
buildings just gathered a few more lichens
and sank a little, from twolvenmnth to
twelvemonth. It wasn't a cheerful street.
It sometimes seemed to Joo as if all tho
tired, and discouraged, and sick, and cross
in tho city all tho pjoplu despaiaog
enough to he wretched, and yet not despair-
ling enough to g'.vo up kind of automatic
Ifort, hud gathered th"ms.;lves together
there. Joo bugan wliist.'lng as ho entsr.-d
its -recinets. nnd whistled lustily, juntas
boys do who have courage to keep up, until
lie came u'.ongHido tho decrepid wooden
building that held his "homo."
Up two tlights, and turning to the loft, hn
enter jd a small room, tho atmospliero of
which was chargjd in about oqual propor
tions with tlu o.lor of moldy wall-paper and
of Bouii) kind of pungent liniment. A mid
dle ngod, unhappy-looking man, with liU
feet nnd logs sirctchd wit on two chairs,
reclined beforo tho window. His gav
housing gown was wrapped tightly around
lis body, anil gray shawl was swathed
kbout his limbs and feet.
This was Joe's I'liclo Willium.
Uncle William hud been, in his day,
a dashing young man, but ho had
dashed just a little too fi.r, and all at
ouce, as fometimi-s happens In parallol
cas-f, found himself used no, Unlv mid
soul. Then, cinee nothing i-!-e i-maiued
to !w done, lie had repent id, and found, to
his astoninluneiit, that tho laws of Nature,
wouldn't work backward, even for repent
ant prodigals. Tho Ahnhhouse impr-mled.
Junt then Joe, the size of whose heart was
out of nil proportion with his resource,
had interposed. He had left a pleasuut
boarding placfl for a detoatahlo tenement,
saddled himself with a burden which lie
was likely to carry for lif :, and 1,0110 to
Undo William, when w.rurely establish
ed iu his three chairs at Jo.;' expense, had
given himself unreservedly to brooding
over his troubles ami lam mting his hard
fate. His melancholy ga;e was this morn
ing Used out of tho window, and lie failed
to withdraw Jt when Joe enlered.
"Morning again. Uncle William." said
Joe, briskly, "It's b.-en a bit dull Iter; M
Xevr-Yuar's morning;, has it. eh?"
Uncle William, slowly turning from tli :
window, d"liv?red himuelf "l' w'tind that
might have been cither a grunt or a groan.
"And you havn't found anything inter
esting in the papers?', continued Joe, look
ing down at the pilo of pictorials, hoping
you would be entertained by them."
Undo William slnok his head slowly
and a trifle scornfully.
"I couldn't be entertained bji picture,
Joe; I've been reflecting." '
"Then I wouldn't reflect any more. It
don't agree with you. Aren't you glad you'n
going to have me for company this after
noon! Aud a hot dinner, tool Hot dinners
arc lusunes nowadays. So? here, will you?"
pulling from out his baskst a round of beef.
Uncle William eyed it gloomily.
"Beefsteak for a New-Year's tliiuiir!"
"Beefsteak isn't to be despised - not if it's
tender and juicy as this like you always get
at Koehler's," replied Joe, making an inci
sion in the beef with his pocket-knife, and
watching the juice start out with an expres
sion of keen gratification.
"Not in out present situation, I know it,
Joe; that's the sting of it. I don't blsmj
you, Joe; but I can t help thinking how it
used to bo with me."
Here Undo William attempted moving
one of bis limbs, hit his foot against a chair
back and cried out with pain.
Joo stamped his steak upon the table,
brought Uncle William his liniment and
then pirouetted off into hit. bedroomthree
minutes, and he was buck again, in a suit
the patehoR whereof attested th" fact that
he did his own mending as well as cook
ing. 'Now, wo must have dinner in a jilTy.
uncle. Then I'm going to give the roiun a
thorough cleaning up; and, after that, if
Mrs. Dowd brings up the washing. I'll sew-
up the holes in tho stocking, while you
"You know I can't read aloud, Joe; it
puts me out of breath," snapped Uncle Wil
"No more you can't. How torgetful in
ni"! We'll talk, then, and have a good
time just the same."
Uncle William grunted derisively, nnd
fingered his swollen and bandaged toes.
J03 shook down tho ashes in his stove,
turned on a pile of coal, brushed out the
oven and tumbled in n half dozen or more
potatoes. From suspicious looking depths
beneath tho t.iblo h! drew forth a gridiron,
which ho began scraping vigorously, niean
whilu talking bri.ikly whether to himself
or to uncle William it would have been dif
ficult to decide. .
"It's a miserable way to leave a gridiron,
without cleaning; but what can a fellow do
who has as many irous in tint Urn a I have?
breakfast to get and clear aw ay, rooms to
tidy up, dinner to be laid out, Mrs. Dowd's
water to b brought, Uncle William's feet
and legs to In bound up, and may ht a run
to tho druggist's or tho doctor's. Hang it
all! a fellow can't be as nice about all these
particulars as he'd like to ho. Ho must
oneo in a while neglect his gridirons."
Joe soon had his steak sputtering on the
iron, it's grateful odor mingling with
that of tho cofloe on the stove, nnd over
powering the pcrfumo of Uncle Wil
liam's liniment. Hu then jerked the
table n few inches from the wall,
spread over it a stithy-starched and
highly-blued "best" tubleclo'.h, set on tho
dishes spasmodically, und, just as tho little
manfcl-c.loek rang twelve, lie announced
dinner, and offered to ussist Uncle William
to the table.
The process of getting Uncle William to
the table in good order was no mean one.
First, tho two chairs iu which his limbs re
posed were one after the other, moved a
slight distance; the large chair in which he
sat followed them carefully; then the small
chairs made another forward move, ami by
d-grecs tho entiro utabtit-hmeiit waa
brought nlongsidj tho tuhle.
"It'n all piping hot, and I've had splen
did hick with tho gravy !" cried Joe, sitting
down and helping Uncle William with a
'Jo-," said Uncle. William, peevishly, "l
ain't up 111 ar enough."
Joe litp d op, ami drew the throe chairs
ff'ully, one after another, an inch or two
rearer the table, llicrt bobbed down in hi
"You'll tako two potatoes, 1 think, Undo
William, and "
"Joe," interrupted Uncle Willium, "won't
yon ju.t h'it up those pillow. at my back,
and pi.t tin- big o.n) nt tho bott'im and th 1
little une at the tnnf"
"Dear me, iindnl" cried Joe, flying at
the pidows. "How csreless 1 am! It
seems to nvj I never shall remember about
thou pillows. You see I'm thinking i
much as to whether you'll liko the dinner
or not th- pillows slip my mind."
"Jic,"Mid Uncle William, as soon a
Joe was agaiu seated, "I wish you'd just
lake the cushion out from under my left
h g and slip it around under the right one."
Joo dropped his graqy-ladh) and whlake l .
around fc the cushion,

William, dividing his attention buween

discouraged, began bis ilinoer.
Undo William, as be the secoid time
pn.n.'ij his plate, yronned: "I can't help
thinking of the New-Year's dinners I've
eaten' io years gone by at Louis Herbert's
the Planter's, the Arlington, the St. Charles
oh, me. und at Walkers such dinners 1
you never dreamed of, Joe. Little did I
anticipate I should ever coma H this."
"But just think how much better this i.

cried Joe. exultantly. "This in't our

face fairly beamed.
