A boy stole a lesson-book from one of his schoolmates and took it home to his mother. She not only abstained from beating him, but encouraged him. The next time he stole a cloak and brought it to her, and she again commended him. The youth, advanced to adulthood, proceeded Co steal things of still greater value. At last he was caught and having his hands bound behind him, was led away to the place; of public execution.

His Mother followed in the crowd and violently beat herself in sorrow, whereupon the young man said, "I wish to say something to my mother in her ear.' 1 She came close to him, and he quickly seized her ear with his teeth and bit it off. The mother upbraided him as an unusual child, whereon he replied, "All! If you had beaten me when I first stole and bi ought to you that lesson-book, T should not have come to this, nor would have been thus led to a disgraceful death
