BY R. P. ALLEE.
PART 1—THE TWO FRIENDS.
Kver since tlic jiroiiuuiicuil decree that
"by tliu sweat ol u liian's brow t-liull hu
cut," tlicre has been uu uiiKiisiiciidcd ci
loi't by the iiiiijortty ol mankind to
.sliirk tne rcsjioiiNibiliiy upon the slionl-
lU'lH Ol OlIllT JifliplL'. Tlill (ll'MlO to cut
ol tlie int of I lie hind without jiliyMtul
labor is universnl, und upon thin one du
.iie 1 linii thiit the general I tin ol' the
human mind 18 emphatically uinniiinotin.
I' urthermore, riches alone can render
that dcMiv a certainty. lleneu we see
that lie who toils tlie hardest is the one
who denies himself the most, lie who
is already far ahead on the road to
wealth, gradually loosens his jutiso
strnigs at the demand of luxury. Orad
ually, I say; that is, us the purse tills,
the opening slowly increases in dimciu
sious. It was this desire inborn, as lie be
lieved that led .Matthew liernard to
abandon the linlf-pay of a merchant's
clerk and seek lor wealth in the earth;
to become tin agriculturist in reallity, a
farmer in deed. His experience I will
relate, that it may assist some and de
cide others in the "course they choose to
pursue for the at'ciimiilatioii of money.
"Well, Mat, I hear that you have
thrown up your position in Yardsticks
store," remarked Hurry Thomas to lier
nard, on the street.
"Yes, 1 hnve done so, and am now
looking out fur u chance at something
ipiiie different," answered Matthew.
"What in purtifuhir have you in
"Think I shall go upon a farm," was
the smiling answer.
"11a, ha! that's good; decidedly the
best thing I've heard this long time.
What! Mat Hcrnnrd, the good looking,
white-handed meuHiirer of calico, going
to farming!" jokingly laughed llarrv,
seeming to think his friend was merely
"You may laugh us much as you
please, Hurry, but that is the conclusion
1 Have reached," answered Hernurd; and
the look of determination on his face
convinced Harry that there was more
truth than fiction in his friend's decisive
"Well, if that lie so. then I must say
that I wish you much comfort and pleas
ure delving through the summer's heat
and winter's snow. Hut -Mat pardon
me if 1 speak plainly I can't help
thinking you are making u fool of your
"No apology, Harry. I know well
enough you mean right if vou do in
dulge in terse terms; und as lor being a
fool, I think I have sense enough to see
that I can do belter at twenty dollars
per mouth on a farm than 1 can at twenty-five
in a store."
"l'robably so," answered Thomas,
rather doubtfully; "possibly not. In
mercantile business one has a chance for
advancement; but a farmer's man is on
ly a clod-hopper all his life."
"Think you that Horsl'ord orEverson
are only clod-hoppers:-" asked Mat, us a
smile passed over his countenance.
"Oh, no! they are rich and hire all
their work done. They spend their time
as gentlemen, making farming a mere
"And yet, I liaard Eversoii eav. a few
days since", that he cointneueed h a boy
at live dollars a month and worked hip
way up, calmly answered Jiernard.
"Then your mind is set on that busi
ness, while mine is bent on going

"Well, five years hence we will cast

PART H—HARRY THOMAS' FIVE YEARS.
The days lengthened into weeks, the
weeks ran through months; and Thomas
steadily applied himself to the never
ceasing rouud of a clerk's or Balesinan'i
duties. Yards 6f muslins, silks, prints,
threads, needles, and all the thousand
articles usually kept in
store, passed throuerh his hands with
monotonous round..... Buiiiks .for- tha
off with the more humble. Uniform
courtesy to all won the good opinions of
the many, until it hecamu it general re
inn rk that Hurry Thomas wits the best
anlesman in the small country village of
L' n ton.
Many offers of iu.ier employment
a d better wages were held out to
'JhoniHS, with a view to induce him to
change his then situation, but nil in
vain. "I am satisfied at it is." was his
le reply. And so the months rolled
ii,toyar.: yet he kept plodding on,
with some upparcnt object in view that
le alone knew of.
Yet in all these years the confidence
his employer had of this upright and
steady attention to business was never
mentioned to uny one. (Jloselv had he
watched thu ways of his clerk, und
while he saw limiiy things that did not
suit the fastidious tastes' of an elderly
man, he would quietly -declare in his
mind that "boys will lie boys," and so
seldom intruded advice to the one who
sorely needed it. Howeter, there was
one thing he did that showed in more
than words the business opinion he en
tertained of Harry's tact in being the
best salesman in town he gradually in
creased his wages until they wen; suffi
cient for every needful want, leaving u
margin for savings.
Four vears had passed since the two
friends, Harry and Mat, h id agreed to
compare notes ut the end of the tilth
and all this time Harry had not 1 jst
srght of his desire to outrival Lis friemi.
T.ie years had not accumulated much,
although there was a balance in his fa
vor in the hands of his employer. So,
sitting upon the counter one stormy
day, when but few customers called, he
be aine absorbed in a column of figures
t.iat he had penciled upon some wrapping-paper.
.So intent was he, that he

answer, as he looked up from his calcu
"Five years is abont as long as 1

Harry, with a smile.
"Well, Thomas, I too hnve been fiir

over twenty-three hundred dollars since
you came here.

"I do not know but that you have

"Place it at interest, or how!" asked
"Invest iu some business, and go iu

"Nine hundred will .not go far after

"Exactly so; and yet I think I can see

country store at the Point, ' seeking a

PART III—MATTHEW BERNARD'S FIVE YEARS.
"Who is that at the irate, father?
some gentleman, I see," said Bertha to
her father, as she was clearing the din
table. The old man arose, and going to the
door observed a genteely di-essed young
man ascending the steps, who inquired:.
"Does Walter Ilowland live here?"
. "I am he; walk in, sir." .
, Entering the spaeious d'miug-room,
and liciiig seated, he said: "J am Mat

Having been informed that it was

to every well-to-do farmer. "Yes,"
thought Matthew, "in these dumb crea
tures, the ennobling traits of man can
find vent for his talents."
And us the days rolled along, Mat
thew, w hose whole heart seemed imbued
with the new world about him slowly
gained the knowledge of duties falling

Not only did these words fill his own
weary hands with renewed vigor, but
they also seemed to lire the hearts of
those with him to such a degree that the
deacon would often be astonished that
the work was going forward so rapidly.
It is the sour and cheerless heart that
drags all (hinga behind it. The cheer

thing ahead of it and having got it m

meeting was purely incidental, us Mat

Curious Story About a Hawk.
A curious incident occurred a few
days since a (.hurt distance from this
city. One of our well-known merchants
had gone out on a visit to a friend, ut
whose house there was a bright little
l.oy, and one day, to please the child,
he manufactured a very large kite, and
as the wind was strong enough, the kite '
was raised at once. After it had gone
up uearlv half a mile, a large crowd of
country people couccicu io amnirc u, as
such a magnificent toy had never been
seen in that section licfore. While the
sjiectators were admiring it, a very
large hawk was seen to fly slowly out of
a neighboring grove-and go directly to
ward the kite. The hawk approached
within a few feet of the strange looking
object, and then circled about under it
for perhaps five minutes, when he flew
just above it and again circled around
several times. Suddenly he hovered di
rectly over the kite and after looking at
it intently for a short time, darted down
wards, and striking the paper, passed
directly through the kite, coming out on
the under side. After this strange ex
perience, which no doubt puzzled tho
hawk vastly, he flew off a short distance
for reflection, but still keeping the kite
in view. Xot being disposed to give it
up so, ho quickly returned to the charge
and this time fastened on the long string
of rags that was used as a tail to the
kite, which he tore and scattered in tho
air in a savage manner. Finding, how
ever, no resistance on the part of tho
kite, he became disgusted or scared, and
flew away toward the woods from
whence he came. The gentleman sava
that whenever he made an attack he
would retreat a little, as if he expected
the strange bird was going to return
the assault. Jlaltimor American.
