Ton may remember that I lectured
laHy for tbo.young gentlemen of the
Clayonlan society. During tlio after
noon of that day 1 was talking with
ono of thu young gentlemen referred
to, nnd ho said ho bad nn undo who,
from somn cauit or other, seemed to
liavo grown permanently bereft of all
emotion. And, with tears In Ills eyes,
this ynunz nian said:

"Ufing hlin to tny lecture. I'll 6tart

"Oh, if you could but do it! If you
could but do it, all our family would
bless yon for evermore; for ho Is very
dear to us. Oh, my benefactor. t can
you make lilin laugh ? Can you bring
soothing tears to those parched orbs?"
I was profoundly moved I said:
"My son, bring the old party around.

Then tho young mnn wept on my
neck, nnd presently spread both hands
on my head anil, looked up toward
heaven, mumbling something rev
erently; nnd then ho went arter his
uncle He placed him In dill view in
the seeond row nf benches, that night,
and I began on him. I tried him with
mild Jokes first then with severe ones;
I dosed him with bad okes, and riddled
hi in with good onosj I fired old, stnlo

warmed up to my work, and assaulted

ranted, till I was hoarse and sick, and
frantic and fuilous; but I never moved

never a suspicion of indMure 1 I was
astounded. I closed the lecture at last
with one despairing shriek with ono

Tue HcgRnr and tUe Paper
Mury years since, when I was a
young man about twenty years nf age,
I used very frequently to spend Sunday
with tny mother, who resided at Ver
sailles, this being the only da v of tho
ween on .wnirii i count leave l'a' is. i
generally walked as farns the .Carrier,
and thence I took a seat In ono of the,
public carriages, to my mother's house.
When I happened In be too early for
the diligence, I used to stop and con
verso with a beggar, whose name was
Anthony, nnd who regularly took his
station at the Barrier de Passy, where
In a loud voice he solicited alms from
every one who passed, with a degree of
perseverance that was really astonish
ing! While Anthony wns in this manner
pouring his exclamations Into tho ears
of every one who came within the
reach of hi. voice, a middle-aged mail
of respectable appearance Joined us.
He hail a pleasant expression of conn,
tc nance, was vrry well dressed, and ll
might be seen at a glance that bo was 'a
mnn In good circu instances. Here was
a fit subject for the beggar; whdqultklj;
made bis advances, proclaiming In a"
loud voice his poverty, and soliciting
''You need not bo a beggar unless
you please," rcplled the gentleman,
"1 have no other means of Obtalnibg
"Are you lame?"
"You aro not Wind, nor deaf, and
you certainly are riot dumb, as every
passer-by can testify. Listen. I will
tell you my' history In a few words.
Some fifteen or twenty years ago I was
a beggar like yourself; at length' l', be
gan to sen that It was veiy dlsgra'coful
to live on the bounty of others, and I
resolved to abandon this shameful way
of life ns soon ns I poslbly could. I
quitted Paris, went Into the provinces,
and begged for old rags. Tho peoplo
wero very kind in rue, nnd In a short
time I returned to Paris with
bly large: bundle of rags nf everv de-
Saint on. I carried thpm inmrtoii y?r
maker, who bought thera at a fair
price. I went ou collecting, until, to
my great joy, ray unnnces enacled mo
to purchase rags, so that I was no
longer forced to beg for thr-m. At
length, by diligence nnd industry. I bo-
c.iino rich enough to buy an ,ass and
uvu panniers, anu.iney saved me until
time and labor. My business increased;
the paper makers' found thU I dehlt
honestly by them; I never palmed .off
bad rugs for good ones: I prospered.
nnd t-ea tho' result. Instead of being a
poor, tlesnl-ed begsar. I h ive ten thou
sand crowns a year, nnd two houses in
ono of the be-it streets of P.irls, If,
tnen. niy menu, you cairilo no better,
begin as a rag merchant. And here,"
ho continued, ''ts'a crown, to set you
up hi your new trade; it Is more than
I hud; nnd, in addition, ploase take no
tice, that If I liud you here another
Sunday I shall report you to the po
On saying Ibis, the old gentleman
walked otf, leavfug Anthony and my
self in great surprise. Indeed j thu
beggar had beeu so much Interested (u
the history he had heard, that ho,, stood
witu open luoutu aim eyes, in mute an
tonlshirient, nor had "he oven power to
solicit alius from, two, well dressed la
dles who'pasi-cd at that moment.
I could not help being struck with
tho story, but Iliad not tlmo to com
ment upon It, as the diligence hnd ar
rived, in which I seated myself and pur- '
sued my way. From that period 1 lost
sight qi the. beggar. Whether the fear
of tho police, or tho hopj of gaining,
ten thousand crowns a year, had
wrought tho change, I was net ware;.
It Is sufficient to say that from that day
forward he was never' seen at the Bar
rier. Many years aftTward It hap
pened tlat business called mo to
Tuurs. In strolling through tho city I ,
stepped Into a bookseller's shop to pur-'
clias-e a new work that had tuado some
noise. I found there were four young
iriRn. all busily employed, while a stout.
good-lnoklng man was giving thciu ot-'l
uers, as ue wuiiteu up ami uown, witu
an air ot importance. I thought I had
seen the face Ot the bookseller before,
but where I could not for a moment
till, Until he spoke, and then I discov
ered hi in to bo uiy old friend Anthony.
The recognition was mutual. JIo
grasped my 'baud aud led mo through
his shop Into a well 'furnished parlor;
He lavished every Uludnew on me, arid
finally cave me his1 history from tlio
time wo parted at the barrier. Wltl(.
the croWn:of the straugcr be began, as
ho had advised him, to, collect rags. Ue
made money; became the partner ot a
paper manufacturer; married his daugh
ter; In short, Id hopes were fulfilled,
his ambition gratllied, and he could
now count lilslr.coino at tea thousand
crowns. He prayed1 oyery' day . lor
blesslncs on his benefactor, who, .had
been the means of raising llliu from the,
