JACK AND TOM. r
When Mrs. Hudson's little baby was born
nll the neighbors were very sorry for, herr
left in.that cold and cruel way, with a child
to bring up !
But Mrs. Hudson, a , fine-looking young
woman of six.and-twenty years, was, like the
rest of..them, able „to take care of berself.
She had a relative "or two in a distant State,
and she was known as reliable and honest.
The letters she wrote brought her certain
10ans, with which she started a small
for millinery and trimmings.
She had good taste in the opinion of the
neighborhood, and when she sold the ribbon
and Sowers tar a bonnet she trimmed it for
nothing. Whp she sold a dress she gave
in apattern t& make it by. These things
cost her nothing but time, and she' was in.
clastrions. They diew custom.
In time the store was enlarged,. all the
loans were paid, little Tom was kept at
school as well dressed as any child there,
and Mrs. Hudson went to church of a• Sun

richness. No one ended her her good for

lyks, she tad a temper. • That was what
sent Jack away ; she• had boxed his ears.
He luid a habit of chewing tobacco, and had
spit upon her clean :scoured hearth, and
there bad been a quarrel, and the blow fell.
"I never lifted my hand against you, Sal.
ly," said Jack. " But this rn say, ru bear
no more. You'll never see me again."
Ho had walked out of the house unll bad
shipped on a vessel bound for China.
Sally hadbelieved he only meant to fright
en her and would come back.; Six months
afterward their baby came into the world,
but Jack bad never been heard of since.
She cried over it still in secret, for . ahe had
been very niucli in love with, Jack and had
thought him very fon;I of her. And film was
proud of Tom, and fonder of 'him fOr look
ing like his father. She scolded him when
he needed -scolding, but his home wits hap
py for all that. Only when he grew old
enough to leave school did any serious con
flict of opinion take place between the boy
and his mother. It was on—a 'Saturday
night, after the shutkeis were put up that it
"The business is so big now, Tom," said
Mrs. Hudson, " that it will take us lxhh.

you are twenty.one rll take

and I've no doubt," said the mother, with a
forecast' ofof maternal jealousy in her eye,

"It's no use talkihg that way, mother,"
he said.. "The shop Will be yours, and not
mine, to the end. I won't keep it. I don't
mean to stand behind a counter. I don't
call that man's work."
My goodness, Tom, what notions have
you got into your head?" cried Mrs. Hull.

and get to be a captain in time, I hope.
What I'd like is the navy, it 'I had a chance;
but anyhow the sea." 1.

sailor, Toin," said the poor woman. "Think
of your education."
"Such as it is, I . do," said Toni; "and

• But the trouble had begun. It went with
her to church on Sunday, after_keeping her
wide awake all night. Arguments began.
The mother at last no longer implored; she
asserted her authority. Tom was not of age
and at last Tom was not so respectful es he
should have been, and there was a regular

it was formally addressed to 'her—to Mrs.
"If it should be Jack come back anus

on a sheet of paper were these words :

the caravansary. The girl, Lon account of
the difference in their agesand social position,
did not reciprocate his manly affection, but
allowed him to continue his devotions. Last '
