IT.0M THE GEEttAX. poor boy about ten yenrs npocn tcrtd the w aroliouso of a rich mer thant, Samuel Uichter, in Duntzic nnd anktd the bookkeeper for alms. "You will get nothing hero said thft marr. without raisincr Ins Lead from hi book ''be olf." AVcepinp; bitterly, tho boy glided towards tho door, at tuat xnomcnt If err ltichter entered. ' " What is tho matter hero?" ho ask ed turninrr to tho bookkceBor. "A worthless bepgar-boy," was tlio mans answer, autl ho Bcarcely looked from his work. In the meanwhilo, Ilerr Rich tot rrlanoed toward the boy, aud remark ed that when close to the door, that ho Mckod tin Pomcthincr. i' Ha, iny littlo lad, what is that you picked upr he cried. .Tho weejiin boy turned and show ed him n needle. 44 And what will you do with it?" nsked the other. " My jacket has holes in it," was the reply. " I will sew tho bi otiea." Ilerr Jkiclder was plensod w th the reply, and "still nigro with the Lay's innocent, handsome face. Hut aro vou not uthamed," said ho, in a kind though serious tone, 'you are so yountr, and hearty to beL'? Can vou not work?" " Ah, tnv dear sir," replied th boy, 'I dn not know how; und I am too little yet to thresh or fell wood.' My father died . three weeks nim, and my poor mother and littlo brothers liavo eaten nothiiier for two day. Then I ran out in ariUih and begged lor bread. But alas, a single peasant only gavo me a piece of bread; 1 havo eat en nothing elso." It is customary for beggars by trade to "contrite tales like this; and this hardens many a heart ugainet the claims of genuine want. 5ut this time the merchant trusted tho boy's honest face. He thrift his hand into his pocket, drew forth a piece of money and said: "There is half a dollar: go to tho baker's and with half the money buy bread for jourself, yiur mother, und your bro thers, but bring the other half to mo." The lxty took tho money aud ran joyfully away. Well," said the Furly bookkeeper, "ho will laugh in his sleeve and never como back again." " Who knows?" replied Ilerr Tlich tor: and as he spoke ho beheld the boy returning quickly, with a loaf of bread in one hand and bomo money in (lie other. "There, good sir," ho cried almost breathless: " here is the rest of tho money." " ' ' , Then, being very hungry, ho beg ged fur a knifo to cut a piece of bread. The bookkeeper reached him in si lence his pockct-knifo. Tho lad cut oir a slice in great haste, and was about to take a bito of it,but suddenly ho bethought himself, laid tho bread aside, folding his arms, re hearsod a silent prayer; then ho fell to his meal with a hearty appetite. Tho merchant was moved bythoboy'& unallotted piotyt Ho inquired alter his family and homo, and learned from his simple narrativo that his father had lived in a small village about l miles distant from Dantzio, where ho owhod a stuall houso and -farm; but his house had -Wen ' burnt to the ground, and much sit kness in his fam ily had compelled him to tll the farm. Ho had then hired himself out to a rich neighbor: but before three week were at an thd honied, broken j tlown bv irrief nnd oxecssivo toil. And now "his mother, whonrsorrow had thrown upon it bed of sickness, was with her four'children iutf.Ttng 'the bitterest poverty.' He, the oldest, had resolved to seek assistance, and had gone from houso to house, then he had como to DantzicV. The nu rchant's heart was touehefl II had ' bnt one child, and the loy appeared t him ns a druft at sight, whith Providence had drawn upon him as a test of his gratitude. " Listen, my son," he began, "havo you really a wish to learn?" " Oh, yes, I havo indeed. I havo road tho catechism already, and I should know, a good. deal more, but at homo I had to carry my littlo broth ers while mother was sick." Ilerr liichtcr'a plan was immediate ly, formed. . v , " i I, ! " Well, then," ho said, "if you are honest, I will tako care of you, you shall learn,' hate meat,; and, drink, and clothing, and in time earn something besidos. Then you can support your mother and brothers also." . Tho boy's eyes Hashed with joy,but in a moment ho cast them down and said: ' "My mother all tho while 'has nothing to eat." At this instant, as if sent by Provi dence, an inhabitant of the boy's na tive villuga entered tho store aud con tinued tho lad's story.-j .,..' II o willingly consented to carry the mother tidings of her son Oottleib, and food and a email sum of money from tho men liant. At tho same time Herr Ifichter directed his hookkoejter to writo a letter to the pastor of thp village, commending tho widow to his care, with an' additional sum enclosed to the poor family, and promising fur ther assistance. ' ' As eoon as this was dono, Herr Ri'ddcr furnished tho boy with decent clothes, and' at noon led lilm'to his wife, whom ho accurately inforiued of littlo Oottleib si story, and of the plans which ho had formed for him. ' Tho food woman readily ' promised her test assistance, in the latter, and sho faithfully kept her word. ' During tho noxt four years Oottleib attended the schools) of tho-groat com mercial city; then his faithful foster father took him into his counting-room to cdncnto him for business. At tluo writing-deck as well ns on tho echool-bench, TiTening youth di played himself, not only by Ids natu ral capacity, but by tho faithful indus try with which he exercised it. Of his W4Hklv allowanco ho sent tho half regularly to hia mother, un til she tlied, after having survived two of his brothers. Sho had passed the last of her life, not in wealth, it is true, but by tho aid of tho nobloIZieh- ter and of her son, in a condition above want. After tho death of his dearly bo loved mother, he had no other friend except his beucfuctor. Out of lovo to him he Iweamo an activo zealous mcr chant. Ho began by applying tho su periluity of his cllowanee, which ho could r,ow dispose of, to a trude in n..ir;'unuill4. W hen by taro and prudir.ee ru gained one hundred ond twenty dol Jars, it happened that 'he found in his native village a quantity oi Lax and hemp, whw-h wus verv good and still to Lo had at a reasonable pricu. He akod Iih foster-father to advance him two hundred dollars, which he did with great readiness; aud the businefs prcsperca so well that, in ino thou year of his clerkship, Oottleib had al ready acquired tho sum ol live Jmn- ireil dollar'1. t ltliout giving up Lis trad he now trallirkcd in linen got ids; and the two combined, made him in it couple yearn, alout one tlkousand dol lars richer. This happened during" tho customary five years of clerkship; at tho end of the period, Oottleib con tinued to servo his benefactor five years more with industry and skill; then he took the pluce ot tho book keeper w ho died about this time, three years after ho was taken a9 a partner by his benefactor, with a third part of the piotits. 80011 a dittoubo eust Herr Kit liter on a bed of sickness, nnd kept liiiu confined to his couch two years. UotUoii), redoubling ins exer tions, became the soul of the whole business. Ilerr I'ichtcr closed his eyes in death iu the sixty-sixth year of his age. In the year lh'JJ, ten years alter, the house of Oottleib Item own ed three large ships, and tho caro of 1 rovidc nee seemed especially to watt h over the interests of their owner. lie married tho daughterof his benefactor. It is but 11 few yeurs since this child of jxivcrty, of honest industry, and of misloi tune, passed away in peacofrom this world.
