ot tncin, iw .Urn's oxpcctatiniii wore
shared by nil.
After Bovorul small toqumtii tho law
yer read tho astounding passage:
"In conscqucnco of tho apparent din
llko of nrytfriUidsou, Jnmeb Randall, to
tho pursuit of agriculture, I horoby givo
and bequeath my farm, consisting of
35 acred, with tho housq and b'nthulld
lugs therebn, to my In'other, WlJHnm
IlnndnlK, and tb my grandson, James
Randall, tho snm of 1,000, to bo paid
ono month after my decease, "
Everybody in tho room sat stupefied
until tho lawyer commenced rolling up
tho parchment which had brought such
confusion in tho camp. Then a general
movement took placo, and tho less for
tunato legatees took their leave.
William Randall camo up to Jumcs,
and taking him by tho hand said:
"This was entirely unoxpected and
un desired by mo. I supposed and had
no other wish than that you would bo
tho fortnnato one."
Tliis was said in n broken voice, with
tears standing in tho spcakor's oyes, for
ho was a plain, hardworking farmer,
and entirely ovcrcomo by his good for
tune. .Tames grasped his hand, and said
"You aro wclcomo to it, Undo Wil
liam. Thcro is no ono elso I would rath
er havo it go to. I'll sco you tomor
row," turning hastily away.
When ho was left alone, ho covered
his faco with his hands and groaned.
Where wore his prospects now? What
hod becomo of all his flno plans for im
provement? When would Emma over
becomo his wifo?
These uTid other things connected with
tho mortification of having it known
that his expectations had been disap
pointed caused him to feel miserable
Tho 1,000, which was surely his, sank
Into paltry insigniflcanco besido tho
loss of a farm woith 400 an acre and
nil lost through his own laziness. Ho
could not blamo his grandfather, for ho
know ho deserved tho lesson.
There ho sat miserably thinking until
twilight had closed in, and ho was sum
moned to tho ovening meal; but ho
could not cat, and resumed his placo by
tho fire, wishing and not wishing ho
'might R"o Emma Willis.
So, when her faco appeared behind
that of Mr. and Mrs. Hall, ho sprang to
meet her with more joy than ho had felt
for years. They had como to offer their
sympathy and advico to Jim, who was
in an excellent framoof mind to rcccivo
With his hand clasping Emma's, ho
sat and listened to his faithful friend
Stovo, who was suggesting somo useful
"It ain't so much tho less of tho pluce,
Jim," said Stovo, "as it is upsetting all
your plans. It would tako a deal of mon
ey to got things all right again, and
hero you'vo got 1,000 in cash to do
what you'vo a mind to with. 'A bird in
tho hand is worth two in tho bush,
yon know, and as you havo all your lifo
been waiting for something to turn up,
snpposo you turn up yourself and show
what kind of stuff thcro is in yon. "
"I will. Stovo, I willl" Jim exclaim
cd, jumping up. "I seo now what a self
ish, aimless lifo I havo led, waiting I
am ashamed to acknowledge for an
other man to dio that I might enjoy tho
fruit of his toil. From this hour I am
resolved to livo to somo purpose, and,
with Emma to help mo, know I shall bo
a happier man. "
Although agriculture was distasteful
to him, ho resolved to conquer his dis
liko and mako amends for tho past So
ho bought a small placo and worked
hard to bring it to n high stato of culti
vation. Ho was so successful that his famo as
a farmer spread abroad, and many ap
plications for ndvico and consultation
did ho receive, Tho old formers said
thcro was no uso compotingwith him at
their couuty exhibitions, for ho regular
ly bore off tho highest prizes. And his
wifo, now a rosy, cheerful matron, mado
the bost buttor and cheeso in tho county.
His farm was growing too small for
his extended operations, and ho was ne
gotiating for tho purchaFo of more land,
when his undo William was killed by
n fall from a wagon and on reading tho
will ho found, to his surprise and grati
fication, that tho old farm had been
willed back to him, improved 100 per
Ho took possession with an overflow
ing heart, now fully appreciating and
enjoying tho occupation which had
taught him that tho greatest happiness
of lifo is in tho full employment of our
talents, whatever thoy may bo, aided in
his coso by tho great power of love.
