A Work-dream Which Now
Has Chance to Come True
There Are Many Boys and Girls Who Need but a
Little Lift to Win Success.
Br FltAJfCIS SIIAFFEIt.
When, a, day or so ago, Clarence Van
Nostrand. aji elchteen-year-old youth of
Glen Cove. Lone Island, went to his work
In a leather factory at the hour 01
o'clock In the. mornimr. he. did not guess
that something was to happen to make
It possible for a long-cncnsnca arcani
to come true.
His mother-Is a. widow, t with two other
children, and as an elcht-year-old boy
he started out as a bread-winner. For
ten years he worked In -the mill, all the
while wishing that in time ne raicni Be
come a mechanical engineer.
Ho did not seo much llebt or nop
ahead, and the other morning when he
rut on his leather apron to go towork
he expected to do It for many more
mornings and years to comp
But that day there was something dif
ferent, for a score of worKmon crowded
around him, shouting congratulations and
showing him a dispatch from Pittsburg,
where the Camcgle Hero Fund Commis
sion had been in session.
When tho air cleared up a tit. the bov
found that the dispatch announced that
he was the recipient of a bronze medal
and S1.000 awarded by tho commission
for his bravery In rescuing three chil
dren from drowning and assisting In tba
rescue of a fourth.
It happened more than a year ago on
the mill pond.
The children had been skating on the
Ice, when they struck a thin piece and
all three of them fell through. And
when the fourth, a thirteen-year-old
girl, went to their assistance, she. too.
came to grief, and all were floundering
about In the ley water as the Im
promptu life-saver came by. It was not
easy work, for the firm Ice was pretty
far an ay, and four benumbed children
were no slight burden to handle, by
only a boy at that. But he got three
to safety, and then, when ho began
to think, as he put it, that It would soon
ho "all up" with him and the ounces t
boy, two men threw out a rope to the
boy and both were helped ashore
. And there the story ended, at least.
the joung rescuer thought It had ended.
But It must hae traveled until It
reached the commission, for last Sep
tember a stranger appeared In Glen
Coe and asked tho boy "a lot of ques
tions" And nothing more happened until the
other morning when the award was an

A bronze modal and $1,000 I
Apart from tbo recognition, and not
considered as an award, that Is not
much monev to change tbe current of
a human life. But If the $1,000 proves
sufficient to make the joung hero's
work-dream come true, it will be a
mighty sum. Indeed.
The boy hopes to use It to help him In
the study ot mechanics, for the ambition
to become a mechanical engineer has
lighted up many a gray morning when
he tied his leather apron about him and
went to work In the mill. He knows he
cannot graduate from an engineering
school unless he has a vaster sum than
that, but he is ready to work on the
side, satisfied to do anything If at the
last he can proclaim himself a mechan
When a boy starts In to work at eight
years old and takes his dream with him
from play to work. It really seems that
It ought to come true in the end, par
ticularly when he proves himself a hero.
