I did not dis pute the statement, she was large in build, but oh, how small I felt for her! such petty meanness that could grow so big in the boy. first step in being and cheating. Well I wLh you could have seen how large that same boy looked as he got off the C. C. &0., and chang ed trains at St Paul Va., for east bound train Jo • I lubield, W. Va. The same game was played on the conductor of the N. & W. Lady if you read this, may be you will remember a traveler in blue. Will give you this advice, if your boy grows up to cheat and lie, don’t blame him, mother taught the first trick. A stranger hopes that son will feel the shame of it and not follow in your foot steps. A few pennies saved; but at what a price! re spect for mother gone; just think. Honesty pays in all things.
