He was a queer looking individual so withered Aud wrinkled that to might have resembled so tue old Gohlin and his White hair stood out sum gely enough upon either Side of i Brown forehead. In Pon his Monger lower limbs lie wore great mud stained boots a world too wide for him and in his hand he carried a Cap of the same color and material of ills coat. He looked first told Hiram Aud then ahls portrait Theu Back again to the Orl Glennl and finally stepped Forward and touched him on the shoulder.

Gormley that Sulci a Chance has never been of ered to one nmn tie fore. If you accept it bread will run up to such a Price this year that a loaf of the better sort will be Worth its weight in Gold and Rich men will give great sums for what they now esteem As nothing. How Many barrels do you think we have on hand a a 44 How Many a asked old Hiram trembling with eagerness. The let to Man Beut Forward and whispered something in ills ear which made him Start to Iii feet once More. 44 8o Many in he cried. 44 Why the very speculators themselves will be at my feet. I shall be the richest Man in the world.

Hiram glanced doubtfully at the shabby turnout but in compliance to a nod from his fellow traveler stepped in Aud took his seat beside him. If the shabby Pony was Small and Ungro Inhong to look at lie was nevertheless of Fleet of foot As any race horse and the Dingy vehicle spun along at a rate which made old ill Maui cling to the 6ides with both hands mud shut his eyes that he might not grow Giddy until passing from the Village it turned Down the Broad country Roud Nind paused at the margin of a Little piece of Wood Laud. 44 your office seems to lie in a strange locality a muttered old Hinsun suspiciously. 44 not at All a replied the Little Man in Green 44 Only we Are go lug by the underground Way so As nut to attract attention. 44 a a said old he rain 44 we thu does seem to bean underground to Sunc sure enough in for they were turning now Luto a sort of Avo Aud Only one faint Ray of Light in the far distance saved them from Belg wrapped in utter darkness. 441 shall lie glad when i am Safe Home again a he added to himself. 44 How do i know where this nmn is taking Mevy but even As lie spoke the Distant Light grew larger and the Carriage a topped at nit Iron bound door with a grating at the top through which fell a Light like that of a flame from the Chimney of a pottery on a dark night. 44 this is our said tie Little Tenn in Green and Oil Hiram followed him As he leaped from the crazy vehicle which sgd Denty disappeared itt a most mysterious manner. A rap at the door summoned n dark Al saved Man who admitted them without Parley and old he rain Gormley stood in a veritable counting House the most spacious which bad Ever met his eyes. He glanced Down the rows of diligent clerks Ull dressed in Black and All engaged in making entries in immense Iron bound volumes at the huge fire which he could see reflected on tho roof through a wide grating in the distance and which rendered anything in the Way of late pm and candles unnecessary and then turned toward a tall dark nmn who strode toward him from the Centre of the glowing Light. He was Clad in Black mid tits Imir was hound together in an old gift. There wus a sort of a supple Snake like ease in ills movements and his feet were covered with shoes that suggested either the gout or Bun Lonb. 44 or. said the 11 tile nmn in Green 44 or. Gormley partner. Helm come to inspect our Stock of flour he d like to buy it 111.�?� 44 he would like to buy it in would he a said the new Comer. 44 you arc very Welcome or. Gormley. I have no doubt we shall come to terms. Gentlemen this is or. Hiram Gori Uley with whose name you arc so Well acquainted and whom you have expected so As lie spoke the Long rows of Black Clad clerks arose with one Accord and bowing turned upon him their hollow blood shot eyes filled with a Light which must have been reflected from the lire beyond it was so red and horrible. Old Hirani Gori Uley shuddered involuntarily As addressing himself to fils two com Anions he said 44 can 1 see this flour of will us you have been shaking a 44 certainly sir a replied the taller of the three As he Flung open a narrow door to his right Aud Lic Claued Hiram to approach. 44 Light up boys Light up 1&Quot and at tho words a myriad of torches flared Down a Vista and Hirum looked upon myriads and myriads of barrels stretching away until they faded into Mere specks in tie dista lira. 44 full of flour from tho very first Brand Down to the sgt Orest not another barrel left in the Market. You can have the upper band of the whole of them Lliam Gormley when you eau starve teu millions if you like to do so. Do you close the bargain or shall we Bend for some Oue else a 44 hush i i agree. Tell Uio your terms a grasped old Hiram Gormley nervously. 41 there Are very easy Quot said the tall Man in Black. 44 81t Down if you please. Here is tho pen and paper and the Hiram seized the paper and conned it rapidly growing White and old As he read on. At lust he to lung it front him Aud screamed 44 my soul i Promise to give you my soul 1 in the name of the fiend who re you a 44 your Humble servant a said the creature Clad la Black Aud old he rain saw a Cloven foot peeping from the queer Boot Aud distinguished the perfume of Hartm Stogie. A let to go a he said. 44let Migo a a 44 softly Quot said tho creature it his Elbow. Quot fuck fitly Why do you care so much for what you have already mortgaged i you Are half mine already do you know that a a 14 it la false said old Hiram. 441 cheat a Oman. I Liel Oug to the Church Aud i subscribed $60 to Ute missionaries a year the dark Man grinned contemptuously. 44 bring me or. Gormley s Boa,44 he said. Aud to who had conveyed old Hiram to the spot where he now stood set upon the table a Box like that in which lawyers keep tie papers of their clients ,44 Hiram Gortney from the Depths of this Box lie took pile of Parchment Aud read from thence 41a mortgage on the soul of Hiram Gormley Given on the Day he Curneil his daughter from the door. Another when lie seized old widow Potter s furniture for rent. Another when lie took advantage of a flaw in the it Napers to evade payment of n just debt of his own. Myriads when lie first began business told filfly lies a Day and gave false weight and measure and a tremendous Niort nge for passing through the world without one Loving tender sympathizing feeling for Mankind. 44 your soul Tiah what is to Worth Nowve 44 ill take it All Back. I la have my daughter and her husband Homo. I la a 44 too late in said the dark Tiki late Gormley too late Quot hut tho old Man stretching out ids baud screamed aloud in terror and fell la unconsciousness. When mrs. Gormley returned from the dinner party she found her Husland stretched out upon the Hearth Rug. With a Blue Lump upon his forehead As Large As a Hen s egg. When he related his adventure she considered it a dream and Laid the blame upon the old port in the decanter on the sideboard but dream or reality it had a strange influence upon old Hiram for in a week he was reconciled to his daughter had ignored the flaw and made the settlement performed various unwonted acts of Charity Aud was la fact an utterly changed mid altered Viau while singular to say no earthly Power Lias yet been Able to induce Hiram gorm Ley to invest in Story of a tooth. Some months since says tho Oakland c al., 77me one of Hie loveliest and most accomplished daughters of a Well known resident was throw from her horse Aud sustained among other annoying injuries a fracture of one of her front Teeth. The delicate Joearl which flashed through 44 lips within whose Rosy labyrinth when she smiled the soul was lost was hopelessly crushed and marred tho Beauty of the lady considerably. The Only remedy for its injury was to line the Root of the Bro. Ken tooth extracted and a false tooth made to till the horrid breach la her Mouth. In her distress she sought the a Vloe of or. Geo. Luce. The had read somewhere or been told by somebody that Dent entry had advanced to such a science that it was a possible to transplant a tooth from the Mouth of another person which would take Root and Bloom As it had in its original gum. Could he secure for her a match to the broken tooth ? if he could he might name his Price. Beauty in distress appeals to or. Luke never in vain so lie informed the grief stricken Maiden that such operations had been successfully performed but in tho present cose the difficulty would lie to discover a tooth of such purity delicacy and Beauty As to be worthy to Munch caramels and Bonbons in company with those which now mourned the loss of their crushed Eom Paulon. However he would tee what he could do. A month or two posted. At last the tooth was found. A Young b lard whose Well brushed and somewhat faded Hab aliments indicated a struggle with Fate entered the office to receive some alight denial utter thou. His manners were those of a gentleman and his conversation denoted intelligence Aud refinement. When he opened his Mouth tho doctor would hardly conceal his there was the tooth to Hod been looking for flashing in its dazzling whiteness the perfection of form and the Lcuio of purity. It was indeed u Gem a the subject was approached cautiously but when tho Young gentleman spoke of i poverty tho doctor uttered him Oue Hundred Dallara for the tooth. The Money tempted tho impecunious foreigner who immediately offered All his Stock to Trade on the Samo terms. An appointment was made for the next Day and a note dispatched to tie lady informing her that at last the tooth was found. At the Given hour theg ii to menu entered the front Otloe and the lady closely veiled shortly after entered the rear office for it was a it Art of the bargain the gentleman was not to see the lady. The tooth was extracted the Money a mid tho stranger departed. Then the tooth was carefully cleansed and submitted to a delicate treatment to preserve its. Vitality while the doctor was preparing the Mouth of the indy for its reception. It was soon inserted and to the course of three or four hours had immovable taken Root in its new Home. In a few Days tie operation was pronounced a Complete Success and miss became the happiest of Girts. Now for the sequel. With a woman s curiosity she was continually speculating As to whom the tooth tie longed and the gentleman in turn was cud gelling ills brains for some Means to ascertain the where louts of his tooth which had turned the tide of his no firs so luckily. For with the Money it had brought him he had made a fortunate Purchase of Stock and step by step lie had gone on with his rapidly accumulating Cape tat until be had n snug Little Bank account and patronized n fashionable tailor. Chance Stirew him into n select Little party one evening where miss happened to lie present and he commenced recounting his when he smiled and pointed to the vacant place in his Mouth where the tooth had Onra had it Home miss gave u Little shriek and her secret was discovered. It is rumoured that out of this dental out Ern Loii a veritable love match will shortly result and in fashionable Oakland circles this Romance of n tooth is just now theall sorb big topic. Religion and honesty. Is it not Lime to preach anew the Sermon of honesty ? first to do justly As if honesty was tho foundation store then to love mercy and Theu to walk Lumbly. There is too much one sided religion. To know examples of Zeal and until lug Energy in Christian work in men who so neglected their own All Yiirs that they Are always under a Load of debt and give Houret unbeliever a very poor opinion of a Christian Man s business habits Buoh things ought not to so be. To know Kex it ple who Are called lights and shining lights who not Only profess Aud Call themselves christians but do a great Deal of real work who Are utterly us mind Flor pecuniary obligations who 44 fall when they can my no longer and yet learn nothing of the value of Money and Are just As devout As if they were not dishonest. They Are 44 unfortunate a True hut Fortune implies Thanee and there is no Obarra la living within one s income and paying ones debts. Think of u Rubl shed 44 memoirs of a so called Holst inn who in our opinion cheated Trade people mud defrauded creditors while lie lived better than they and bated no Jot of his charities. No wonder that Many honest men Are not believers. They attend to their own attain and Are not always failing. We want a great Many things Uthe a Days More Faith More love More self denial More Cal Rutlan Zeal but for symmetry of character we wait More downright honesty in men and women. To do justly love mercy and walk humbly with our god a god help us. A Gallant. A newly married Man who evidently needs discipline thus discourses 44 a woman is a Handy thing to have about the House. 8he does not Cost any More to keep than you la give her and Shell take a great interest la you. If you go out it night Shell he awake when you get Home and Theu Shell Tell you All about yourself and More too. Of course she will know where you have let Een and what kept you out so Lato and will Tell you yet right after she get through telling you that she will Aak you where you have been Aud what kept Yuu so late. And after you Tell her and she won t believe you you must t mind that Aud if after go lug to bed she says she Hasni to shut her eyes All night and then keeps up the matinee two hours longer and won t go to sleep when she has a Chance you must t mind that either it s her nature
