gfamtstowti JJ/w/. E. H. & C. H. FOSTER, Publishers. JAMESTOWN. D. T. THE X1N IN THE PEPPER BOX The "pepper-box' was a little octag­ onal house about six feet in diameter and eight feet in height with a conical roof. In one of the eight sides was a little door with a window in the top of 'it, and in the other six sides there were small win­ dows. The pepper-box was furnished with one comfortable leather covered arm-chair, and the curious little build­ ing stood in a rai road yard amid a per­ fect net-work of switches and turnouts, and was placed there to shelter the man who watched the know-nothing," crossings where two railroads intercept each other at right angles. The crossing's of which I now write were in the railroad yard of a large man ufacturing city and railroad center where nearly every foot of land, with the ex­ ception of this little triangular spof of ground where the pepper-box stood, was covered with iron rails. One would naturally think it a very COB fusing place...

1 Ml ADOPTED CHILD. "Is that Oldtown Church, yonder, if you please, sir?" A girl spoke to me. I turned and look­ ed at her. There are women of sixteen and children of sixteen This was a child. She wore the scantiest of cotton dresses, belted af the waist, a pair of leather boots and a white apron. In her hand she carried a sun-bonnet, and her hair cropped close like a boy's, curled in black rings about her head. The face was a baby's face in sweetness and inno­ cence, the little brown hands the hands of toil. No young lady this, yet there was nothing coarse and vulgar about her unless it was her hands. "That is OldtoWn Church, my dear," I said, "are you going there "Yes sir, to see the wedding, Are you?" I was, more fool I, though I did not say so to this child. The bride for whom the bells were ringing was to be mine once—would have been but tor the acci­ dent which had crippled me and changed her heart. She had done nothing treach­ erously, but I saw the truth and set her free. Sh...
