THE STORY OF A. BRAVE GIRL. You often hear of”boys who work and take core of their mother ami little broth- listers, but it is not common to h.ar of a girl who is bravo enough to take the burden on her shoulders of sap , porting a mother and live brothers ami I r « .and sh< only ten years old. But I ;. in ' tell y ou the story as 1 tend it in The . N w York World, for it is a real turn S in Karp (for that is our little fri ml’s i r.’m. I stoo l looking out of th.- window of | „ . niall ten- mi nt house <--*-■■ gloomy even ing just at dark, when she 1 card low , weeping and moaning in the room above. ■ SI. raid: “Papa must b.- awful bad. for ; tlmt’s mamma, crying again.” She tuine. and rrm upstairs, ami < nt. ring a room she met her other ' i king up and down ami moaning piteously: mar a b--d .n th-- loom vol. grouped serial of their n-lihors. Sara walked up t> the bet and “what she saw there made all the color lade, out of her cheeks,” for she loot:-.1 mto the f.-;oo of 1m- d< ad father. She never forgot that sight. The m xt day was Um funeral. After all ; w-is over tin neighbors gather <1 around i tin- window t-> give h< r advice. ID-ti- w -re six little fatherl.-ss children. Sara was the ■ Oldest, and she only ton y. irs old. Tlu^vid ow was an invalid and the sickness bad taken all th" money they had. So what was to be done’.' '1 lie neigh boi s said: “You will litiv.- to give up this hous-'e and send the children away to an ciphans* home. Sara listened and :.:e teats eairm into her eyes. She thought of her little brothers and rimers th t '.die loved so well, ami her home, where Hi- had been j . j api , y .. > .)>, v , .- ler.-d what a 1 tths , • . co <] .... She was standing by t’ -e window io. ■! mg out when rhe maid tlio ■ w.-boys as tin y call* d cut their paper;-; in lou-l V 'ic'-s. Al! at. one,- si:-- turned and Said: “Mamma, don’t give up the house ami . semi us children, off. I am going to sell - pjn.-r*, I know 1 can earn money enough b.'ir- ep us all.” Her mother at first ob- | jeeled. bn: Sara pleaded :-•<> that at last , she yielded. The next morning before day- ■ light this little t.-n-year-old girl with the ■ only d-filar .-die had in the world—and she , had b* en saving f >r months to get that— . skirted out all ab-ne while every one in I the house w. s k.~r < p to mane a living for hr- moth* r and little brothers and sisters. ■ V\ -en she i-ached th pi le., wk- re t!•.«;>’ buy pa] rs it was just 5 o’clock and a. gro-u crowd of noisy newsboys w.-M , standing around waiting for the papers. If you could one.- r< as I have, this t crowd of boys all pushing and hello-Ing you I would not wonder that a t- nd- r little girl • f. It. almost frightened at the crowd. Sara was soon In tin- crowd ami b- 1 >r<- idle, i knew it two red-fa**-*! boys right in front | of lo r were in a. light ami the crowd pr* - s- I ing her from b. hind, caused her to 10.--- h* r I f. .. inc ami fall. Six* "as In danger of being trod up. n and --lie could not h. l? crying out—the lighters heard the cry and wiiin they looked down and saw a little girl right und*-r th- ir feet, you n.ay ba t*ur«- the fight stopp-.-'l. On of tln-’U helped , her to lo r f- < t and brushed tile dust off ' r dress witti his cap. H ■'■ name was I Gimsy. lie turned around to the other i fellow and said: “If it ain’t a kid girl; j v.!you doing in th s push, -is?” ”1 : want to buy some papers so I can sell i them,” sad Sara, smiling through her ! tears. Gimsy laughed .- nd told !n-r si’" ought to be horn* in her er b, but win n he saw the tears ir. her ey* .-*. 1- ■ f- it sorry j for her. ’Then she told le-r story of her j dead father and helpless llttl.- hrot -•>• '• and . sisters, and last of all, sliow- d th- m her 1 r dollar. The boys listen*-*! * ( , her story and seemed very mm li impressed, i and Gimsy told her to “stick close to us and wo will -that you g ' your :■-ta -k pers ’and ar t dealt fair b • So th* se no.vs who :-.'iu the d.-.y in a - were softened by tin- little girl and . took her all around and iter full stock < of papers, and Gimsy gave* het- bis plac*- i at the entrance of the Brooklyn bridge-- the best place to catch cuetom* is. By 10 ' o'clock she had sold out ami was starting i home. After counting out the money she | had made, she put it* r arms around hor . mother's neck and said: “Mamma, don't t :r . ; ev* rybody is kind to ’t on won’t : lav. to ---nd off your ehildren.” Now, all this took place just seven years ; > and Sara is now .-*• v*-.it*.<-:! y.-ars old. | Sim Is still in the ue w.spnp*-r busin*-.-*.*; 1 cv* r.v one is kind to is : and willing to help • i girl that is .o br.-iv- and works so hard, i Her mother and family are still living in tin- same li*.use, *he rent is paid < very i rnonth and he d >es such a gi>od busim ss I that she not only has money In the bank.

But I am many* miles from th- re now. so I thought I would write and tell you cousins about my trip here. We left Cartersville on the night of the Sth of December en route to Sherman. Tex. 1 had quite a nice time while In Car tersville. There were a lot of our friends at the depot to see us off. We passed sev eral little towns, then we came to Chatta nooga. Being dark, we couldn't see Look out mountain, which I would have liked to. Then we came to Nashville, a very largo city; from there on to Memphis, where we had to lie over two or three hours. We crossed the great Mississippi river at Mem phis. It being dark, we couldn’t see it only by* lights from the city. Wo crossed several other large streajns, then we came to Texarkana. We had to wait some time there. I enjoyed the ride from there to Sherman so much, the land being partly prairie, it looked quite different from what I was always used to, which was hilly ar.il thickly* timbered. Then a little after 8 o’clock we arrived at our destination. I no tice a lot of the cousins are joining the club. T enjoy* Aunt Susie’s pieces so much, especially about the hospital.

BHIi ARP’S LETTER Hattiesburg Is a growing little city away down In Mississippi on the road that leads from Meridian to New Orleans. It is in tho piny woods and derives largo revenue from lumber and turpentine. It is the market for many thousand bales of cotton, but business does not seem to be ilepressed on account of the price. There are large stocks of goods an.] the stores tire throng ed with customers and tin- hotels throng' -I witti traveling salesmen, for wiier*- the carcass is the eagles will he gathered to gether. J know there is money there., for it Is a sure sign of prosperity when o* ■ r •100 good people turn out to a lecture and pay 5o cents apiece for it. I was *.-.*i:* I there by the Lamar J.it.'rary Soel' ty, which Is another sign not only of prosperity, but of culture an.l refinement. A d* ad or de clining town cannot keep up such a so*Tty.
