A touching "local in the iH-troit I ree ,
Press show vividly enough the tender
pity which the lowly feel for each other
in sorrow and sullering. A passer
thro"il O'Uton f?!rt one day ob-,
served a little Irish boy biding In a
door-way and crying. A sympathetic
inquiry brought to light one of the
most U-autilu! stories ever recorded 01
the sick Kor.
In a wretched cellar, a little girl ten
yrars old lay very ill. The window
pane were broken it was march, by
the way and variously stuffed. For
one pane the supply of upholstery had
riven out. Tho wind ond tho boy i
iookcu in easily, juni nuut
curious eyes the coi i me bus. vimn
was Htretrhed. i
The uamins f Clinton Htreet dia-
coveretl her plight. One little fellow
dropped an range through the broken
glass; a plaintive voice thanked tlie
unseen giver, Such net of mercy be
camo tlie fashion in that poor neigh
borhood. Every day saw the cub of
the street cuddling like cosset outside
Wisp. of evergreen, swept out of
florists' doors, broken flower throw n
away, offering f fruit wit h tlie decay

sick that tho resources of Clinton
Htreet afforded went through
that broken pane. One little fellow
begged a bunch of frozen Malawi
grapes from a dealer, to whom lie
offered tiis ragged cap in payment.

the mourner behind the hearse of the
starved and fro en child.

I was sitting at my upstairs window
tliisinoriiina when tlie milkman came
and left milk in a bowl on the table on
Mrs. Plumb' back porch.
Huff wa sunning himself under the
table, and never opened hi eye till
the milkman wa uone. J hen, fl

table and negan lapping too mux,

Two or three time he seemed to

Ho ate till lie badenouub, evidently,

Hhe looked sharply at the aulk, n

would you believe it ! t hat cat open
