LO S T - IT was many years ago, in an old-fashioned room, comfortably furnished, yet partaking as much of the character of an office as of a parlor, in an old town known world-wide for its manufactures, that two elderly gentlemen' sat in judgment on their adopted son, who half lay with his face covered with his hands at the other end of the table. A pitiful sight to see. It was easy to notice thit the two gentlemen were brothers, the same noble and -kindly features, the same soft-and mobile mouth was. seen on both, and the gray hair brushed in the same style, the similarity of clothing, as well as manner, pointed them out as united in thought and habit as they had been in business for many years ! for the firm of Robson Brothers was as well-known as the town clock, and as highly trusted in its dealings as the Bank of England. A pair of kind-hearted easy-going bachelors, they had not pushed their business,...
