The same farmer, who is a liberal and large-minded man, has endeavoured, without success, to introduce the practice of paying in cash instead of beer, and also the system of payment for overtime.

How pleased I am to see you, my first, my only friends down here!" Jean breathed again. It was the same woman. "Will you allow me," added Mrs. Scott, "to introduce my children to you? Harry and Bella, come here." Harry was a very pretty little boy of six, and Bella a very charming little girl, five years old. They had their mother's large, dark eyes, and her golden hair.
