PAPA AND THE BOY. The Irrepressible Youngster and His Charming Ways. : Charming as is the merry prattle of innocent childhood, it'is not particularly agreeable about 1 o'clock in the morning, when you are "dead for sleep," and wouldn't give a copper even to hear Gladstone himself talk. There are young and talkative children, who have no more regard for your feelings or.for the pro. prieties of life than to open their peepers with a snap at 1 or 2 a.m., and to seek to engage you in enlivening dialogues of this sort: "Papa!" You thick you.will pay no heed to the imperative little voice, hoping that silence on your :part will' keep the youngster quiet; but again the boy, of 3 pipes out sharply 'Papa l' ' Well?' you say. 'You 'wake,' papa ?'. '' Yes.' .' So 's'me.' t ' Yes, I hear that you are," you say with cold sarcasm. ' What'do you want?' ' Oh, nuflin.' ' Well, lie still; and go to sleep. then.' S'I isn't s'eepy,.paps.' ' Well, I am, young man.' 'Is sou,? I isn't-not a bit.' Say, pa...

"You wobiild like to know all about it-wouldn't you ?" . He was sitting opposite to me at the end of tihe wolnt-tree table, in his shirt and trousers, his bare feet on the bare polished oak floor. These w:as a dark bistre ring round each of. his eyes; and they-being spherical rather than oval, with the pupils. fixed'and coldly shining in the centre of the orbits-were more like those of some,wild animal than of a man. The hue of his fore head, too, was ghastly and dingy; blue, violet, and yellow, like a bruise that is five days old.' There was ai clummy sweat on his beard anod un...
