my mother that stopped my growth. If
I'd had had an idea of a sewing machine,
there's no telling, what I might a done."

She taught us to be faithful and true; to

enemy. It's thirty years, stranger, since
' we dug her grave by the lake side with
our own hands; and with many a tear
and sob turned ourselves away from the
cabin where we imd been raised—the In

and we'd nothing to keep us—arid so we

but I've seemed to hear her say, 'that's
right, Jack,' and that has been the - best
of all. Nothin' like a mother, boys—
nothin' like a inother."
$ll this had passed while waiting to
wood, just. out of
.Chicago. The great
man-was swelling with emotions , called up
from the dark• shadows of the past; his
big rough frame heaved like a great bil
loW upon the ocean: Tears sprung to his
deep set and earnest eyes— , -they welled
up to, the brim—and swain round asking
to be let fall as tributes to his mother's
memory—tributes to the love of the past.
But he choked them down, and humming
a snatch of an old ballad, he thrust his
hands down into his pockets, walked back
to the end of the car,.pulled the gigantic
collar of hiS shaggy coat up around his
ears, buttoned it clos4 and leaned back
.I , ;ainst the window in silence.
The cars, rattled on. What a mind
was there; what a giant intellect, sleeping,
buried away from light and usefulness by
a rubbish of prejudice; habit, and custom
—doing but half Work for want of cul

Webster, going about the world,,strug
gling with - his 'own soul, yet bdund .by
chains of ignorance, whieltprechided his
doing but a moiety of the good:it lay in
his' power to do:
All the way through our long, tedious
journey, he had been ever on the watch
to do good. • He gave up his seat by the
fire to an Irish woman and her child, and
tools one farther, back; soon a young girl
seated herself by
,his side ;. as the night
hours wore on,• and she nodded wearily,
he rose, spread-his beautiful leopard skin
,with its soft, rich lining, on the seat, made
a pillow of his:carpet-bag, and insisted
that she should lie down and sleep .
"What will you cloy said she, naively.
"Neier mind me--I can stand np and
sleep, like a buffalo; T' 4 3t used to it.".
A little boy, pulled up from a sound
nap to - give place to tneomers; Was paci
fied and - made quiet ba handful of chest
nuts and a gloiing it of-candy out of
the'big man's pocket.' When he left the
ears for refreshment lie . -brought - back his
hand full of-pies; and distributed Ahem,
among a weal.) , group. . A xnother and
seven little'children, - the eldest ndt twelve
years old, whose. husband and father left ,

No bite Or iefres'hutent, no ex i bilirating

'came to her All_ the long night, save when
the pig man stretched out
and took her baby boy for' an hour; and
let,,hini play with his . `E . splendid watch
to fteep . .him qide;t. -
."I'll give ye a thousand dollars for him,"
said he, as he.• handed him back to her
"You may haVe the whole lot for that,"
answered the drunken father, with a swine-
Tike grunt. •
."It's a bargain," said the big man r "Pro ,
vidin' the mother's willin'." -
"Indide, sir, it's not the one of them
cani , e 'had for money," was tho quiet yet
detennined i responso of the mother's heart.
How kiirdly he helped her,off the cars
when at the break of dairy, they came to
their journey's end. I . '
Thits all night had he'been attracting
the attention of the waking ones in the
cars.: But his kindness and rough polite
ness would soon have been forgotten by
mass of the passengers, had he not
stamped it upon our memories with - his

"What an interesting Character."
"FAlneation would . spoil him."
"What rich furs
"Did you notice what a splendid watch

"11 . p's some great man incog." , •
Stieh were a few of the queries that
passed from lip to lip. But there came
no answer; for he who alone could have
answered sat crouched in his fur coat,
seeming unconscious of all but his Own
"Chicago !" shouted the brakeman, and
in an instant all was cconfasion, and our
hero was lost in the y crowd. The next we
saw of him Was at the baggage stand,
looking up a band-box for a sweet-looking
country girl who was gding to learn the
milliner's trade in the city. "As we pas's
edto our carriage we dicovered him again,
holding an old manly the hand,: while he

- "God bless him for his . good deeds?"
was our earnest asperation; as we whirled
round the corner. May his shadow - nev

diminish; for in his unnumberedreharitiqs
