The times Neav Bloomfield to. October 2, 1877. Granny Briggs clerk. Was a tall thin starved Lookin Sheboy with a Little jacket the sleeves of which crept half a y up his and a hat that was nothing but a brim and when she first saw him he was eat ing a crust out of a Gutter. She was Only a poor old woman who kept a Little shop for Candy and trimmings and poor enough herself heaven knew but As she said he looked a Little like what her Tom might be if he had grown up and been neglected and she could t stand it. She called to him " come Here Sonny said she and the boy came. Before she could speak again he said " i did t do it. I la take my oath or anything i did t do it. I Niu t so did t do what said the old woman. " break your Winder said the boy nodding his head toward a shattered pane. " Why i broke that myself with my butter last night said the old woman. " i m not Strong enough to lift pm that is a fact. I m getting " if i m round Here when you shut up i la come and do it for you said the boy. " i d just As soon. What was that you wanted me for " i wanted to know Why you eat that dry crust out of the Gutter for said she. Hungry said he i be tried to get a Job All Day. I m going to sleep in an area Over there after it gets too dark for the policemen to see and you can t have a Good night s sleep without some supper if it is ill give you some that s cleaner said the old woman. " that will be begging said he. " no said Bhe " you can sweep the shop and the pavement and put up the shutters for very Well said he. Thanked then. If i sweep up first i la feel bet accordingly Bhe brought him a Broom and he did his work Well. Afterwards he ate his supper with a relish. That night he slept not in the area but under the old woman s counter. He had told her his Story his name was Dick he was twelve years old and his father whom he had never seen so Ber was in prison for life. The antecedents were not elevating but the boy seemed Good. The next morning the old woman engaged a clerk for her Small establishment. The terms were simple his " living Aud a bed under the when the neighbors heard of it they were shocked. A Street to y a boy whom no one knew i did mrs. Briggs really wish to be murdered in her bed ? but mrs. Briggs Felt quite Safe. She had so much time now that she was going to take in sewing. Dick attended to the shop altogether. He kept it in Fine order and increased the business by introducing candies dates on stick and chewing gum. Pennies came in As they never did before since he had painted signs in red and Blue Ink to the effect that the real old molasses Candy was to be got there and that this was the place for peanuts. And in the the shop was shut up she began to take him into her Confidence. Her great dream was to buy herself into a certain Home for the aged. It would Cost her a Hundred dollars. She was saving for it. She had saved three years and had fifteen of it. But it Cost so much to live with Tea at Twenty five e cents a Quarter and loaves so Small and she had been sick and there was the doctor and mrs. Jones Martha Jane to be paid for minding her and the shop. After this Dick took the greatest inter Estl n he savings an the Winter months increased them As though he had brought a Blessing. One night in the Spring they took the bag from under the Pillow and counted what it held. It was thirty " and i la begin to make kites mrs. Briggs and you la see the custom that will bring. If a Little Sha ver sees the kites hell spend All he has for pm and then hell coax his Mother for More to buy the stick Date s and chewing gum. I know you re a Clever boy yourself said the old woman and patted his hand. It was a plumper hand than it had been when it picked up the crust from the Gutter and he wore clean whole garments though they were very coarse. How wrong the neighbors were she said. " that boy is the Comfort of my so she went to bed with the treasure under her Pillow and slept. Far on in the night she awakened. The room was utterly dark there was not a Ray of Light but she heard a step on the floor. " who is that she cried. There was no answer but she Felt that someone was leaning Over her bed. Then a hand clasped her Throat and held her Down and dragged out the bag of n o Jey and she was released. Half suffocated she for a moment found her self motionless and bewildered conscious Only of a draught of air from an open door and some confused noises. Then she sprang to the door and Hur ried into the room. Dick Dick she cried. " Dick i Dick t help Wake up t i m robbed 1" but there was no answer the door into the Street was wide open and by the Moonlight that poured through it she saw As she peered under the counter that Dick s bed was empty. The boy was gone i gone gone of that was worse to poor Granny Briggs than even the loss of her Money for she had trusted him and he had deceived her. She had loved him and he had abused her love. The neighbors were right she was a fool to Trust a strange Street boy and had been served rightly when he had robbed her. When the Dawn broke the Wise neigh Bors came into poor Granny s shop to find her crying and rocking to and fro and they told her they had told her so and she Only Shook her head. The shop took care of itself that Day. Life had lost its interest for her. " her occupation was gone but not with her savings. Money was but Money after All he had come to be the Only thing Bhe loved and Dick had robbed her. It was ten o clock. Granny sat moan ing by the empty Hearth. Good nature d mrs. Jones from was " seeing to things and trying to cheer her when suddenly there came a rap on the door and a policeman looked in. Mrs. Briggs said he. " Here she is said mrs. Jones. " yes i m that wretched Critter said mrs. Briggs. " some one wants to see you at head quarters said the policeman. There s a boy there and some Dick cried mrs. Briggs. Of i can t Bear to look at him but mrs. Jones had already tied on her Bonnet and wrapped her in a shawl and taken her on her . The wretch she said. I m so glad he s caught. You la get your Money and she led mrs. Briggs along poor mrs. Briggs who cried All the Way and cared nothing for the Money. And soon they were at then and not before the policeman turned to the two women " he s pretty bad he said. " they la take him to the Hospital in an hour. I suppose you re prepared for that. " he s nearly beaten to death you " did you beat him you cruel wretch said mrs. Briggs. " i would not have had that done for twice the Money. Let him go with it if it s any Comfort to " i beat him i said the Man. " Well women have the stupidest Heads. Why if i had t got up when i did he d have been dead. He held the bag of Money tight and the thief was pummel us him with a loaded stick and the Pluck he had for a Little Shaver i Tell you i never saw the like " you Shan t take Granny s Money from her says he and fought like a Little Tiger. If it b your Money old lady he s Given his life for it for All i then poor old mrs. Briggs clapped her hands and cried of Dick Dick i i knew you were Good. I must have been crazy to doubt you and then she wrung her hands and cried " of Dick for just a paltry bit of Money i Aud so she Knelt beside the Pale still face upon the Pillow and kissed it and called it tender names. And Dick never guessing her suspicion of him whispered " i was to afraid he d get off with it if he killed , and you in Bucu Hopes last he did not know what she meant by begging him to forgive her. It would have killed him if he had for he was very near death. Dick did not die. He got Well at last and came Back to the Little shop and though Granny Briggs had her savings Bhe never went to the old ladies Home for Long before she died Dick was 6ne of the most prosperous merchants in the City and his handsome Home was hers and she was very Happy in it.

And by 3 in the afternoon it had got All around that old or. Throckmorton was drinking As hard As Ever again and had t drawn a sober breath All Day. Well done. A Young Man called in company with several other gentlemen upon a Youn g lady. Her father was also present to assist her in entertaining the callers. He did not Bhare his daughter s scruples against the use of Spirl Tous drinks for he had wine to offer. The wine was poured out and would have been drunk but the Young lady asked " did you Call upon me or upon papa gallantry if nothing else compelled them to answer " we called upon " then you will please not drink wine i have lemonade for my the father urged the guests to drink and they were undecided. The Young lady added " remember if you Call up on me then you drink lemonade but if you Call upon papa i have nothing to the wine glasses were set Down with their contents in tasted. After leaving the House one of the party exol Almed that is the most effective Temperance lecture i Ever indeed it was sown in Good ground. It took Root sprang up and is now bearing fruit. The Young Man from whom these facts were obtained broke off at once from the use of All Strong drink and is now a Clergyman preach ing Temperance and religion. As he re lated the circumstance to me tears came into his eyes. He sees now his former dangerous position and holds in grateful remembrance the lady who gracefully and Blu resolutely gave him to understand that her callers should not drink wine. An outspoken Clergyman. In a company or Jue Induisi clergy men not Long since i heard a Story which i thought Good enough to pre serve. Rev. Or. Derwell was a staunch and pious old methodist minister set 3 tied for a part of his time and part of his time Itin rating in Tennessee. Dur ing the last War with England he was patriotic enough to enlist As a common Soldier but Hub people would not allow it. Once upon a time he went to Ken Tucky to visit his relative and dear Friend the Hon. A Lallum Bolton. Or. Bolton was not a Church member but he was religiously inclined and having respect for the Clergyman s feelings he cheerfully invited him to Lead off in family worship every evening which brother Derwell gladly did. One Day judge Cone and his wife from Nashville came to spend the night and perhaps to Stop longer. When eve Ning came or. Bolton Felt somewhat embarrassed As he knew that the judge was one of the free and easy sort who pay Little or no regard to religious mat ters. So he whispered to the minister that he had better make the services pretty Short. " the judge is a Good Man he said " but is not used to family worship and it might be unpleasant to him in which Case of course it would be unpleasant for both you and " very Well replied Derwell " i will take he opened the Bible and read the last two verses of the last chapter of reve lations. That was All he read and then he Knelt to Pray. And he prayed some thing after this manner " our father which Art in heaven we know that we Are poor needy creatures dependent upon thee for life and for every needed Good and we would esteem it a blessed privilege to offer up to thee our whole hearts in Humble prayer and Praise but my Cousin William says that judge Cone and his wife Are Here from Nashville and that they Are not used to family worship and As we would not distress those people Wilt thou o lord accept the offering of those who love thee and excuse us from further service. Amen the judge and his wife were Thunder truck and Cousin William looked for a Hole in which to hide himself. Finally however matters were explained and adjusted and the old Clergyman was persuaded to go on and conduct the service after his own after an hour s courtship. In the second Ward of this City says the Adrian Mich Timet there resided last week a Middle age d widow Well preserved and highly respectable. In the country a Short distance from Adrian at the Bame time lived a widower Well preserved a Little More than Middle aged a wealthy Farmer with All the comforts of life except a wife. One Day last week he drove to town an elegant Span of horses attached to a handsome Carriage and drove to the widow s Resi Dence in the second Ward. Widow and widower had never been each other. They were introduced went out for a drive together returned a Little after noon took dinner went out for Anotn drive and returned later in the after noon Man and wife. But Little Over an hour s courtship sufficed. They had never before that Day seen or written to each other but each knew the other s name reputation and desires through Mutual friends. The widower was wealthy and lonely the widow poor and hard Workin one Brief year. " will you love me this Way when i am old she asked As he emptied five cents Worth of peanuts in her Lap. " i will Darling i swear it i he passionately asset rated As he carefully Laid aside his Cigar and commenced on what was left of the Nickel s Worth. That was when the Flowers were Bud Ding and the Birds were mating one Brief year ago. Last night they sat again in the gloaming and who knows but that their memories reverted to the Happy past and yet when she asked for a fifty cent parasol he feelingly re marked that a woman whose face was As yellow As a Duck s foot and looked As if it had been cultivated crosswise with a Patent Harrow need t be so particular about her complexion. A Little heroine s sad death. Mother i saved the House but i shall die said a six year old girl to mrs. Theodore Markman As she entered her Home at High Market Lewis county n. Y., one Day last week. The child while attempting to Light a lamp to warm som6 milk for a baby set fire to her clothing. Her first thought was to run out of doors fearing that the House would be burned and the baby be Hurt but noticing that shreds of her clothing had fallen upon the floor she carefully extinguished the flames. Then she ran to the horse trough in the Yard and plunged into the water. Returning to the House she waited patiently for her Mother to return. She died an hour after the Accident. J
