Vile dark rainy night, about three

excitement by the appearance at the

would claim : th'eir hospitality for the

they knew the uncle, was very eccen

.In the'midst of their hurried -prcpa.:

old, feeble,looking, white-haired man
thinly clad, and his soiled garments
clinging to his shriveled form.. -
"Will you be so kind, good people,"
ho said, "as to give me something to

"We have nothing•to eat,!and if wo

the master of the house in a coarse

"But I am' old and feeble, and very
hungry and tired" said the 'aged
applicant in a pleading tone, "and' if
you drive me away I may perish."
"Well that's' What you ought •to

to work and start out begging, it's

"Well then," said the old man, with
a sorrowful look, !"Sinco you cannot'

. The 'dame brought up a piece of
brown bread, and; with an angry look
was about to hand it to the mendicant,
more for the purpose as it seemed, of
getting rid of him than for any feeling
or compassion; but her miserly bus-
band interrupted, and said sharply—
"l told you we bad nothing for you,

"May heaven be more merciful thah

and disappeared in the darkness."

at the door (:)f Stephen Barrett, anoth
