and Leader of those who follow Him, filled the darkest hours with joy.
The annual examination was drawing near, and Dick was very anxious to be able to use his hands by then, and "pass the standard" successfully.
Meanwhile, he worked doubly hard, and went far ahead of the other boys in lessons that had to be learned by heart.
And the teacher lent him books to read that helped him wonderfully, though he could only read them by snatches.
He saw how boys as poor and friendless as himself had had to bear hardship and unkindness, and how they had fought their way onward, through all difficulties, to success and freedom, and his own resolve grew stronger every day.
Now and then Mrs. Fowley would order him to be off out of her way, and when this happened in the evening he gladly went to Paddy's lodgings.
It was so quiet there, after the scolding and quarrelling at home, and Paddy always had a welcome for him, while bright-eyed Pat quickly learned to know his owner.
