He ootnuieuced aright, and for a time got on swimmingly, quite astonishing his mother, who bad no idea she bad so talented a son. At last, when ho was in the midst of his invocation, his memory forsook him, and he re peated the tirst part of the prayer over again, f his he did several times, till at length the pa tience of the good dame was thoroughly ex hausted.
