Tt was true what the old man had said. Hubert was possessed of a invent- ive faculty and at one time he had eager- ly read every work on mechanics upon which he could lay his hands. as ho looked at the old as torpid as if it had. 11-3vor known the wrath of Jlnino and the llmig began to come out nine thnt each successive bargain was _oing to make his until it arrived n the limbo of the Dearborn farmhouse lien he forgot all about with his ild unrest upon turned his city- to commit some new piece of folly.

Pretty however the whistle died from olf his lips. He had got absorbed in liis occupation. It was cortnin 'ho ohl man was not so far out of the after all. With some skill and money spent upon the condemned engine could be mado to run. Thus much he knew for himself. It was of tho portable kind used for mechan- ical and there were curtain parts but lion down in Binnt- who had worked in u boiler could tell him just how much it would cost to replace and undeisland just how the power ought to be applied. Up in the carriage-house loft there was a lot of cross-out and circular saws the old man had bought of Aleiid when he sold out and moved West.

Mrs. Dearborn left her dishes cooling in the and leaned her bared elbow on tho window-sill to take notes as passed down Long toward the where the maples were blushing scarlet and the beeches wore a crown of glory. Every motion of Hubert's had become to her now and she noticed that talked earnestly by the and made gestures as if laying down the law. They stopped against a and the 'old man ap- peared to listen attentively and then they went on and were soon lost in the shadow of the trees. Toward nightfall the two 'came back to Mrs. Dearborn's unfeigned as- although Old had brightened tip and seemed younger than for years she could get no satisfaction out of him concerning his re- except Unit he had changed his mind.

The tariff prevailing -froui 18-10 to on the same was 30 pet and from 1857 to 24 per cent.' Under tho operation of tho' ta'riff.of. the production of pig iron in this increased .at tho of 63 per eent.-jpKT an- and under the tariff of 1857' at the rate of'Ct per per annum.
