who was passing, so that his basket tipped,
and fell to tho ground with its contents.
Tho poor lad, when he saw his eggs all
broken, and his butter tumbled in tbo gut

When oil had. contributed their quota, our
young valet, whoso distress had .vanished
in a mcmcnt as though by enchantment,
warmly thanked his new benefactors for
their kiadness, and forthwith proceeded to
count tho sum ho bdd received, which
amounted to no less than twenty-two franc3
and thirty-five centimes. But instead of
quietly putting this sum in his pocket, ho
produced tho bill of thd articles bo had lost,
and as its total amounted only to' fourteen
francs, he appropriated no moro than that
sum, and then observing in tho group that
sarrouuded Lim, a poor woman in rags, tho
gallant little fellow walked up to her, and
placed tho remainder in her hand. Cer
tainly it would havo been impossible to
havp shown himself more deserving of tho

i handsomer manner. Tho.. boy's uoblo
conduct was greeted with tho applauso of
tho crowd, who were dclightod ta find such
delicacy and propriety in ono so young.

and informed the Englishman that iu tho
absence of a 'pair of Yankees,' ho might

and hit tho Englishman under his left
car. The Englishman went up about five
feet, leaving his boots behind. Englishnian
eamo down again and fell liko a log. Dan
got a physician, bled Iho Englishman, and
brought'him to. Having done this, ho sent
him homo on a sjiuttcr. Tho affair oc
curred about i!& 'miles from Niagara. Tho

gold, on which was written " Empire.''
He opened it nnd found it full of blood.
Tho second choso tho amber vase, on which
was written " Glory," ne opened it and
.found it filled with tbo ashes of men who
had been famous on tho oarth. Tho third
took tho remaining vase that of clay.
He opened it and found it empty; but in
the bottom of it tho potter hadjWrittcn tho
names of God. " Which of theso vases
weighs most?" demanded tho king of his
court. Tho ambitious replied, the vase of
gold ; tho conquerors, tho vaso of nmbor ;
tho sago3 answered and said, " The empty
vaso, because a singloilotter' in tho namo
