GentleMAN'S MAGAZINE

DECEMBER, 1869.

BROKEN ON THE WHEEL.

BY JOSEPH HATTON,

AUTHOR OF “CHRISTOPHER KENRICK."

રીલી

E was ever a strange, wild spirit : at one time revelling in fits of dissipation; at another, reading hard and going to

church on Sundays, like a plodding, respectable man. A Le week ago he began to tell me his story, the story of his life from the beginning. There was a peculiarly touching pathos in his style which I can hardly hope to reflect in these pages. It seemed as if he loved to dwell upon his earliest days. He would describe every little incident of his life at the outset, and gradually fall away from this close picturesque painting, as he approached the end, his story becoming more suggestive than narratory, until at last it was nothing but a wild burst of passion, the cry of the maniac þroken upon the wheel of fortune, and raving at fațe.

This is his strange and pitiful story S

“What an ugly little rascal !” exclaimed my father, in answer to the "there, sir,” of a portly Gampish woman, who held something in a bundle under his nose, what an ugly little rascal!”

"Lor, sir,” said the woman, "for goodness sake don't go and say so to the missus, she'll never get over it."

But my father had no particularly delicate scruples on that score, as niy mother has since told me. He did repeat this rough and ready criticism on the personal appearance of your humble servant, George Newbolde. How rapidly I changed from anything but a handsome baby, my VOL. IV., N. S. 1869.
