Sueoh i the power of that voluntary kindle
which ca nothing to those who eerie it, ad,

Very soo the kind gentleman' service were

bering how th now miserable-looking man hd

Nelly could hardly understand this at tft, but
by-and-by even arh was moved to pity by seeing
how week and M the gtleman was. S6 lid
of her grandiAthers knee, and guided by his

The gentleman's pale e flushed fnd r a

added, "I think, lite on, yo fel maors for me

Child as she was, Nelly eould now nderstad
something of the power ee of a kind word in
ofteming the heert ead o ing away unloving

If h wished this gentleman better though,
