stacks of boxesNot long ago a gentleman was walking down Market Street. As he passed along in front of one of the stores he saw a man taking packages of dry goods from a box which had just been opened. The son of this man was standing by, with his arms spread out to hold the packages which his father was taking out of the box. A little fellow, the friend and playmate of the boy, was standing near, looking on. Presently, he thought the boy’s load was getting too heavy, and he said, “Johnny, don’t you think you’ve got as much as you can carry?”

“Never mind,” said Johnny, in a pleasant, cheerful voice; “father knows how much I can carry.”
