Sad and despondent Arnold B. was
walking home after one more fruitless
seacli for work. Many weeks since be
had pawned his Itest clothes, sacrificed
his gold watch, and paid hi last cent for
advertisements in the papers. He had
slept in a mean room in the suburbs for
a month, and lived on free lunches for
nearly two weeks. He was thinking of
the friends who bad ceased to know him
when he had ceased to treat them, of
numerous promises that never brought
him anything, and, thus brooding over
his misery, he neither heard the noise
nor saw the crowd tb&t filled tlie streets
towards the close of the day.
Coming to the gate of the yard he had
to cross to reach his room, be waft roused
by the sight of a boy of fourteen, who
was beating a large Newfoundland,
hitched to a dog-cart, to make him
climb, with his load, up a flight of crazy
"Lca?e that dog alone," shouted Ar
The boy looked at him with contempt,
but did not answer. Again the stick came
down with furious force, and was split
in two upon the stairs. The dog, hear
ing a protector's voice, had bounced to
wards him, upset his cart, and was lying
at his feet.
"Here! Rover! Here! I say."
The animal imploringly fixed his eyes
upon Arnold's; but did not move.
"Here !" repeated his master, pale with
rage, and once more raising the broken
stick. But Arnold did not give him
time; he flung the stick into the next
yard, and applied his boot somewhere
upon the young miscreant's body with
such vigor that he sent him reeling into
the arms of his mother, who was just
opening the door to sec what was the
Arnold disentangled the dog and set
him free. The intclligct brute licked
the hands of his protector and jumped
around him to express his thanks.
"What do you keep that ruffian here
for?" said the boy to his mother, with an
oath. "You know he'll never pay you.
He is a thief, an assas ." Ho did not
finish, for Arnold coming in, gave him a
look that made him seek shelter behind
his mother. '
"It is not enough to lodge in my house,
without paying for it," shrieked the
latter at the top of her voice,. "You
must begin to beat my boy now !"
"Madam," answered Arnold politely,
"I have given your boy no more than he
deserved; and as to your rent, you may
rest assured that I will pay you as soon
as I can get work."
"Fine way to talk! Everybody can
get work, except those who are too proud
to do it."
"I fear those who are top proud to
work would be too proud also to live in
a place like this," retorted Arnold, with
an attempt to smile.
"What now! Insult! If my house is
not good enough for you, you may leave'
it; but pay me my month's rent first."
"You know I have no money," gently
"What is that to me?" I want my rent
and I must have it."
Arnold was silent for a few minutes;
his face grew ghustly pale. Taking off
his overcoat: "Here," said he, "this is
the last thing I have that can be turned
into money, go and sell it for whatever
you can;" and he left the house.
"Beggar!" shouted the boy, from the
half-open door. "Thief !"
But Arnold heard nothing. Ho was
walking briskly along an alley that led
him out upon the fields ; there he stopped,
and casting a rapid glance over the city,
said, bitterly: "Since there is nothing
for me there, let us go." His f ramowas
trembling; he thought it was the cold:
" Tis true," ho said, "I have no overcoat
I must walk faster." And he started al
most at a fun, never stopping until ho
reached the shore. From the edge of a
rock he seemed, for a few seconds, to
question the depth of water, then, a leap
a splash and Arnold B. was buried
under the waves. His first feelinz was
to struggle for life, but he conquered it
immediately, and, ceasing all motion,
opening his mouth, he felt the wafer fill
his body, and saw himself go down, his
face downward, until he was lying flat
upon the sands. He did not suffer, but
his mind had suddenly acquired a lucid
ity it had never known before. He ssw
his whole life at a glance as in a mirror,
and knew he was sorry for what he had
done. All at once he thought be was
seized violently, and lost conscious
ness. It was Rover, the brave dog, who had
followed him, and was paying his debt
Rising to the surface with his precious
load and swimming vigorously, he soon
laid Arnold upon the shore. There he
keept barking furiously until he attracted
the attention of some stragglers.
The body was carried into a fisher
man's hut near by, aud a physician seat
for. A few old envelopes found in his
pockets revealed Arnold's address; a
messenger was at once dispatched, and
found there a letter which had just ar
rived for the unfortunate young man.
It was an answer to oae of his adver
tisements, offering him a situation as
preceptor in a rich man's family.
Arnold was brought hack to life;
when he opened hk eyes the first thing
they met was Rover's big curly mead
looking kindly at him from the foot of
the bed. He knew at oace how ke had
been saved bis first words' werer "At
last I have one true friend, if it is oaly
a dog." Pssi ri MnL

Sale of a Wife.
A corr'pondeut of the Utica Observer
Writing from Rome, N. Y., tells a curi
ous story of one Hozckioh Wright, living
a few miles from that city, who lately
sold his wife to one Torrcnce. The
agreement between the parties is repro
duced as follows: "The agreement wit
nessed That I, Hezekiah Wright, of
the first part, for the consideration of
three bunches of shingles, one-half acre
of unharvested corn, aud one-half of an
acre of unhaivaafed potatoes, do sell,
assign, and transfer all my right, title,
and interest in aud to my wife, Mary
Wright, to Jcseph Torrencc, of the second
part." Signed and scaled. After the
instrument in writing had been drawn,
the same was read to the wife of the
seller, who witnessed the same, and
agreed to become the proerty of the
purchaser, and accordingly gathered her
personal effects and took up her abode
with Mr. Torrcnce.
