Jti tlio (rundlo-bed beside, him. threo
Httlo curly bends, nnd threo pairs of
chubby, restless feet, nil sadly In need
of shoes and stockings", nnd threo hun
gry Httlo mouths that must Imvo bread
and butter, nnd no coal In tho bin, and
Httlo food In tho house.
Tho wintry dusk wns fast deepening
Into darkness, nndsnow was beginning
'I must havo some winofor Charlie,"
I snld nt last, "nnd a few other things."
With theso words, I kissed my poor
sufferer, nnd went outlnto tho tempest,
I hnd gone but n littlo dlstnnco when
a womnn's voice nrre.-ted my attention
In passionate and agonized entreaty. I
paused nn instant to listen. Beforo the
door of n small cotlnge, a eouplo of
officers stood, with a slender hid be
tween them, nnd n rough, brutnMook
ing man, whom I recognized ns ono
Bronton, tho landlordof tho vlllago Inn.
On her knees beforo him, with her un
covered head expoiod to tho storm, was
tho woman who plead so passionately.
"Don't do it, sir," sho was saying)
"for God's sake, don't I His father will
bo homo to-morrow, and ho'll nuko it
nil right; don't tako my boy to prison."
Sho put up her slender hands to clasp
tlio tavern-keeper's arm, but ho shook
her off with un oath.
"I won't wait, I tell you," ho cried ,
"tho young rnscal stolo my money, and
I want it back. Glvo mo llvo dollars,
and we'll play quit."
1 haven't five ilollnrsln tho world,"
sho sobbed i "but If you'll only wait, I
eaiiTalso It tomorrow,"
"No, I won't wait, not another sec
ond mnreh on, officers: tlio young
thief bhnll sleep lu Jail this very night."
"I'm no thief, sir," cried (ho lad, his
Alio faco blazing. "I didn't steal your
money nnd you know It."
"Silence!1 thuiideicd tho landlord.
"Do you tlaro to call me n llnr? Olllcers
will you go on'.'"
T had thought my own troublo incom
pnrnblc. But hero was something infi
nitely worse. Impelled by nn impulso
of uncontrollable pity, I stepped to tho
poor mother's side.
"What Is It, my good woman?"!
Sho turned her poor, agonized faco
upon me, with a flash of tngcr hope,
"Oh ! they accuso my hoy of stealing
madam," sho cried; "and bis father
who's been over bens for two years will
bo home to morrow, nnd find his sou in
Jall.llkon common thief. It will kill
lilm, and break ray heart.
Jiy hand went instinctively to my
pt c!;et, v hero tho five-dollar bill rested.
Sho watt lied tho action with n piteous
look in her poor eyes. I thought of my
own boy fit home, n bravo littlo lad, so
like bis father. What if this poor
mother's easo were my own
I drew tlio hill from my pocket, and
put It in her hand. With n cry of Joy
slid darted lifter tho olllcers, and only
waiting tosco thot her boy wns released
1 liurrltd nwny.
Charllo grew worse that night, nnd I
bad to summon' tho doctor enrly on the
morrow. Tho doctor ordered fresh sup
plies of medicine, good nursing, nnd
tho best of nourishment. Alnsl I imp

not a cent in tho house. Over nnd over
ngnln.ns I looked at Chnrllo's palo face,
tlio old snylng, "Charity begins nt
homo," recurred to mo.
I worked, every spnro moment, nt
embroidery I had procured ; but it wn
lino nnd trdloti; nnd when I had tin
Ishcd ono piece, I seemed to bo going
blind. Hut I took It up to Mrs. Den
ban, who lintl employed me, for I need
Sho cxaniincd it critically, nnd ex
pressed herself only tolerably plowed,
nnd then, settling back nmld hor warm
cushions, sio remarked Hint sho would
pay mo when I had finished nil.
I ventured a remon si ranee, but sho
cut mo short nt onee. "Sho had no
change," sho said; "and, moreover, It
was n rulo of hers, nover to pay for part
of a Job."
I hurried back to Charllo with nn
aching heart, and found him moaning
with pain, tho hour for his inodlclno
long past, and tho prescription In my
pocket. In desperation, I riijhed to tho
bureau, and drew out my riualnt littlo
jowel caso. It contained somo trilling
articles a brooch that bDlomred to mv
mother, nnd a fow other trinkets. I eo-
iected two, and hitrrleilout again, down
tho snowy str", to tho ono Jowclry
establishment of which tho littlo sca
sldo vlllago hoaitcd. It was a hard task
to provail upon tho dealer to purchaso
my trinkets, nml when nt last ho con
sented, ho offered mo n few paltry shill
ings, which I wns forced to nccept.
Cltarlio's medicine was purchased, hut
tho fow dimes that wcro left wcro
barely sufficient to obtain a smnll mod
icum of coalfurtho morrow; nnd whero
was the chicken for Charlio's broth to
como from V
I paused in tho snowy street, with
tho glittering winter stars nbovo my
head, nnd tho brilliant show-windows
Haunting on each side. Just then n
merry chlmo of bell clashed upon tho
frosty air, and, for tho first time, I ro
membered that It was Now Year's Evo.
A pnln as sharp ns death pierced my
heart, ns I stood thoro, thinking of my
far away friends, and wondering what
I should do. A grocer s shop, brilliant
ly lighted.'' I Hew over tho slippery
flag-stones, and entered. Tho grocer
hurried forward, nil smiles nnd bows.
"Would ho lot inu Imvo a chicken,
and n bottlo of wino ?' I asked, with
my heart in my mouth. "My husband
was ill; nnd ami-would ho bo good
enough to trust mo till next week?"
Iliscountcnsnco fell on tho Instant.
He hesitated, and stammered, "Ho was
extremely sorry," ho said, "but it was
a rulo of his never to credit Jtraugors."
"John, John, that's her," spoko a
woman's voice, at my elbow, at that In
stant, I turned, hut tho speaker had averted
her face, and I only saw n great, stal
wart man, with a bronzed face, and tho
kindliest brown eyes I had ever bulioid.
Blinded by tears, I hurried away
homo to poor Charllo and tho babies, I
gavo Charllo his medicine, and hushod
tho littlo hungry mouths with a scant
enough morsel of milk and bread, and
then tucked tho children nway In their
bed. Charllo foil Into a doze, and I sat
down beforo tho smouldering embers,
to indtilgo in tho solo comfort that re
mained to me, n hearty cry.
But I had scarcely begun, when I
heard tho crunch of fuotstops In tho
snow, and directly after, it rap at tho
door, I opened it with a bounding
heart, hoping that somo good neighbor
had como with help. Tho tall man
ullh tlio bronzed faeo and kindly eyes
1 knew him on the instant stood on
thu steps, wlih n lingo i-ampor on his
brawny shoulders. He set it down at
my fiet, andet n led his hand.
"We've lcv.li hunting jou tho last
two days, madam," ho began, abruptly,
his kind eyes fiaihiug with happiness,
"and glad enotijh wo aro tu find you,
You dono mo a good turn when you

The? great simplicity of bisjiablts was
another ground of popularity. Ho far

rough, scant rations wero his as well.
Thero wcro times when for weeks our

to llvo on, and not enough of that. On
ono occasion somo molasses was obtain

of molasses beforo tho General at din

his hot cormbread. Seeing Ids satisfac
tion, tho catering colonel remarked,
General, 1 secured llvo gallons for

for every mess tho sizo of ours?" said
tho General." "Oh, no. Tho supply
won't last a week." "Then I direct,
Colonel, that you immediately return
every drop you have, and send an order
that no mola-se sliill ba Issued to ofllc

It will bo remembered that on tlio
Hoin orjsovembcr, lSCo'.on ndark night,
while tho plaintiff's toam was crossing
ino uriugo which spans tho Chlquos,
uiviuing mo townsnips or ilapho and
West Hcmpfield, it broko down, and
tho teamster, horses and wagon wcro
precipitated Into tho water, killing a
vaiuauio norso, crusiung tlio wagon.
and destroying a largo quantity of
wneat. To recover damages, an action
was instituted by Mooro against tho
townships of Ilapho and West Ilemn
field. It was shown that tho bridgo
was rotten, anil that, If tlio ordinary
test, had been used by tho supervisors,
tho defects could easily imvo been do
tccted. Under tills ovldenco tho court
charged that tho townships wero llablo
tlio question of negllgenco being referr-
eel to thojury. Thojury found $378.03
for tlio plaintiff.
On u writ of error, tlio Supremo Court
affirmed thojiidgment of tho Common
Pleas.and delivered nn opinion dcflnlnc
tho liabilities and duties of supervisors.
Tho opinion is too long for publication,
but its substanco is embraced in tho fol
1. Bridges aro treated as tho portions
ol highways which cross them, and aro
to bo maintained and kept in repair by
tho supervisors of tho township.
i ino neglect of tho supervisors to
keep them In repair, subjects them to a
personal liability; but does not lesson
tho primary liability of tho township
to thoso who suffer injury from their
3. What is negllgenco must depend
upon tho peculiar circumstances of ench
case, and it is a question for thojury.
1. Great danger demands higher vici-
lance,nnd moro effectual means to secure
0. Applying tlioio principles hero, it
may be asked, what structure moro Im
portant, In view of tho safety of lifo and
property, can bo well imagined than
such a bridgo a this, having a span of
uity-two reet, crossing from ten to
twelvo feet nbovo tho stream, whoso
water is mlddlo deep. Tho accident it-
solf is ovidenco of its important charac
ter, 'ino plaintiff's wagon was over
turned In tho fall, tho body crushed,
tho load of wheat fell nndornpnth It
into tho stream, nnd ono of tho horses
was killed. As remarked by our Brother
Head "a bridgo looks fair till It breaks
down it is not llko a pit which you
can seo and avoid." In practice, it is
used up to tlio last moment. Henco,
such a structure demands constant vig
ilance to guard and preserve It. Thsro
fore, when a bridgo Is old, having stood
for tho length of tlmo tho timbers com
posing it aro accustomed to last, nnd
when it may bo reasonably cxneeted
that decay has set in. It is notrlltrenpn fn
omit all proper precautions to ascertain
Its truo condition. Nor will mcro ap
pcarances in such a case excuso tho neg
lect. It is a matter of common knowl
edgo that invisible dofecls may, and
utiuer sucn circumstances, probably do
oxlst that either wet or ilrv rot. mnv
havo set in and not bo visible, and
therefore should bo sought for. But no
ono of ordinary Intelligcnco would
think of seeking for nn unsound and
invisible dcfct by merely insnectlnrr
tlio Eurr.tco of Iho wood. This being
thoen-e, it is clearly tho duty of tho
supervisors, having thus reason to be
lieve that defects may exist, to call to
their nsdstauco thoso whoso skill will
onnlilo them to ascertain tho truestnto
of Iho btructuro, and determine tho
question of its safety. Without doing
this much nt least, their duty to tho
public i not performed ; not to do It, is
therefore, negligence, and this Is the
point on which tho ciso went to tho
Jury. Thero is, therefore, no error in
Shakespeare ana tlio Illble.
Shakospeaio constantly reminds us of
tho Bible; and when a passago comes
io minei, tlio origin of which lis uncer
tain, a common impression is that it
must belong either to tho Bible or tho

tho samo feeling In an equal degree.
