eegleft his face.-There was a large
f in the room below his chamber, so
that he was not very cold, and getting a
up, he went to a small closet, and from
beneath a lot of old clothes, he took
forth some long strips of wood and com- m
menced whittling. It was not for more
pastime that he whittled for he was
fashioning some curious affair from
those pi9ees of wood. He had bits of iP
wire, little scraps of tin plate, pieoes pi
of tine and dozpns.of small wheels that
he had made himself, and he seemed to a
be trying to fit them togetheri after of
some particulQr fashion of his own. .
