a little incident he had himself observed a few weeks previous, when the
boy was home from the Institution for his holiday. The little deaf and

shouted out, "Hello, here's owd dummy comin;" and all four went to meet
him, and tried to make friends with him, but he thought they were
scarcely clean enough for his company, and quietly passed on his way
towards home. The boys were surprised, and stared at each other for some
