Thc True Story of a Horse.
BY EMMA C. DOWD.
"You. must put Old Jim out of
the way before I come home !"
That was the parting order of
Mr. Bardwell, as he drove away to
Poultney, on that dreary November
The matter had boon pending for
weeks, and, yet the words cast a
sudden gloom over the household.
Nobody ate much breakfast, and
there was little talking.
Old Jim had been the favorite
family horse for years; but he was
now too old to be of much use, and
Farmes Bardwell could not afford
to keep him through another win
ter. Crops had been poor, and
with Jasper in college, and Tina at
boarding-school, it was all the
: farmer could do to make.both ends
meet. Mr. Bardwell was- too,
merciful a man to sell the horse,
perhaps to let him be worked to
death in a few weeks or months.
So he had come to the conclusion
that the most humane way was to
kill him outright, though it nearly
broke his heart to think of it. It
was not often that the farmer
shirked his duty, but now he had
arranged that a small bit of busi
ness should keep him in Poultney
all day, for he argued :
. "The boys will do it easier than
I could, and I shall be thankful to
have it over with."
John Bardwell knew that a
command from his father was not
to be trifled with, so after the
chores were done he brought
out his gun, saying, "If wa must
do this thing, we must I suppose,
and the sooner the better. Come
Joseph followed his brother to
the barn without a word, but
when he came to Old Jim's stall
and heard his familiar whinny, it
was all he could do to keep from
crying, big twelve year-old boy
that he was.
The spot selected for the tragic
scene was a hemlock grove about
two miles from the farmhouse,
chosen because Mrs. Bardwell had,
said, "If I hear that gun go off, it
will kill me !" So John and Joseph
and Old Jim plodded across the
desolate fields toward this remote
corner of the farm.
The brothers were never boys of
many words, and now they were
silent till they reached the edge
of the little woodi
There John, who had been stalk
ing ahead, paused irressolute. Pie
took an apple from his pocket, and j
let the horse eat it from his hand.
Then he _ buried his face for a
moment in the gray mane.
'.You must do it, Joe-I can't,"
he said at last, holding out the
"Oh, John! No, no!" pleaded
the younger boy, with a sob in his
"Well, somebody's got to, and
I sha'n't ! So go ahead. You can
shoot as well as I. Only be quick
and sure about it; that's all."
Joseph was naturally a timid
boy, never asserting his indepen
dence, as John often did, and
without another word of remon
strance he turned down the wood
path, his arm around Old Jim's
John threw himself on the
ground and waited. It seemed a
long time, and then the sound
came that he was dreading to hear
ths sharp report of his gun. With a
?groan he covered his ears with his
Joseph said nothing when he
returned, and John could not bring
himself to ask any questions.
They were half way home when
the younger boy lagged behind.
"What.is the matter?" asked
"I am so tired," said Joseph ;
"and my head has ached all this
He looked really ill, and with
! out more ado John took him on his
i back, saying, "I am strong enough
to carry two of you," and thus
they reached home.
That was the beginning of a
long sickness for Joseph, and it.
was the last of March before he
was able to be out-of-doors
On the day following the
sorrowful little journey to the
hemlock grove, there had boen
a heavy snowfall, and the ground
had been covered all winter.
One day, near the first of April,
I Joseph was missing. Nobody knew
where he was. At last John
discovered tracks in the snow
leading off toward the evergreen
wood, and he started to follow j
But he soon came to a sudden
halt as he looked ahead. There
was Joseph, and-could he believe
his eyes?-there was surely Old
Jim walking c t his side ! How
well he knew thc white foot, and

I John bounded forward, and in a j
moment was covering Old Jim
[ with tears and caresses, while the
horse whinnied and rubbed his
head against the lad's shoulder.
"Oh John!" cried Joseph; "ll
couldn't kill him that day, so I ]
I just tied him with a little string, J
and shot the gun into the air, and
there he has lived all winter, and
pawed away the snow to get the
grass; and-oh, do you suppose
father will care?"
.Care!" echoed John. "He has|
said more than once that he
would give anything to have him
back again. Why, he will be tho
happiest man in town." And Old
Jim lived on oats and. bread and
butter and sugar and kisses the
rest of the day, and for years
afterward dwelt in comfort and
happiness on the old Vermont
farm.-Harper's Young People.
The French Broad*
The French Broad River,
although it has but few claims,
to celebrity, size or importance,
has a beauty all its own and is
well worthy of mention. Rising
in the Blue Ridge Moutains of|
North Carolina, celebrated for
their pricturesque and magnificent j
scnery, it pursues a winding course j
for about 100 miles and then j
mingles with the waters of the
Ohio. The spirngs that give it
life are situated in the wildest re
cesses of the mountains still
nown to sportsmen as the haunts
of the bear and deer. For the
first fifteen miles of its course it |
is au ideal trout stream, with
waters clear as crystal and cold as
ice. The early spring is the proper
time to'visit this portion of it, for
then its beauty baffles description.
During the month of May the j
mountain laurel and wild rhodod
endron are in full bloom, and as j
the banks of the stream are fringed]
with them the dark green leaves
of these shrubs, their pink
blossoms and the sparkling water
create a picture so lovely that no
eye could fail to be charmed by it.
But after rushing through many a |
mountain gorge, some of which j
are so narrow and deep that the j
light of day never penetrated
their gloomy solitudes, the French
Broad reaches the valley below
and there its character undergoes
a complete change. It is trans*
formed, as if by magic, from " a
roaring torrent to a peaceful and
slow moving river. Its banks are
ni-i longer clothed with dense forest]
and almost impenetrable thicket,
but covered with well kept fand'j
prosperous farms. One . could
scarcely believe this broad stream,
with hardly a ripple upon the
surface of its placid waters, to be
the same that a few miles back
came leaping down the mountiin
side, creating many a minature
waterfall and cascade in its de
However, sad to say, the French
Broad soon loses its picturesque ?
aspect, for the charming mountain
stream deteriorates into a muddy,
sluggish river, and the country
through which;it flows, although
highly cultivated and fruitful,
does not bear comparison with the
rugged grandeur of that above
described as embellishing the first
few miles of its course.
Happy at Last.
Bishop Williams ot Connecticut
is celebrated as a raconteur. He
tells of a Canadian lady who for
years lived unhappily with her
hnsband. The man was a good,
easy-going fellow, but his wife's
temper was ungovernable, and at
length drove him into a premature
grave. ?t his death his wife'
seemed to feel great remorse for
the past, and deep mourning and
constant weeping bore testimony to
her grief. Some months after the |
funeral she went to a spiritualistic
medium and was placed in
communication with the spirit of
her departed spouse. A long
conversation followed, during
which she asked: "Are you happy
now dear husband?" "Oh, very
happy,"j?e answered. '^Happier
than you were in this world?"| she
asked. "A thousand times," was
the reply. "I'm so glad," she
said ;i"and where are you darling?" j

Under the rule and inspiration of the
art decorator, a curious confusion and
introversion of ideas has come to pass.

FOR FIRE ENGINES.
C?aiUlcrathie Patience and a Period of
About a Month Ie Needed for Raw Re
cruit?-Th? Bone Play? an Important
Part at Every Fire In a Bis; City.
Of the praise which has been showered
upon the New York fire department for
the excellence of its system, the splendid
Mtfanala that haul the heavy engines and
trucks have their share. Any one who
has watched one of the crack engine
companies tearing through the street in
response to an alarm cannot have failed
to notice how the horses strained every
muscle to cover the distance as quickly
as possible, with scarcely a touch from
the driver's whip. Some of the horses
show an almost human intelligence in
the quickness with which they respond
to the alarms sounded by the big gongs.
Nowhere can that be seen better than
in the house of Engine 7, at Chambers
and Center streets, where two horses, Jo
and Charley, hold the record for the
quickest time in getting into harness.
Horses' and men have to show off fre
quently for the benefit of visitors. The
foreman sounds the gong in one of these
exhibitions, but docs not release the
horses at once, as the regular alarm does
by electrical apparatus. The two big
horses, whose stalls are on either side of
the engine, strain at their halters and
jump in their eagerness to get to their
places. The moment the foreman re
leases them by touching an electric but
ton they spring forward and duck their
heads under the collars suspended with
thereat of the harness from the ceil
ing and ready to be fastened about their
Sometimes the foreman snaps the col
lar beforehand to test the intelligence of
the horses. Then Jo and Charley poke
their heads through the closed collars
and struggle until they get their heads
through them. At an actual alarm of
ure the horses will start on the instant,
and they vie with the firemen in their
eagerness to get to the fire.
AN LMPOBTANT ANIMAI.
It is plain that the horse plays just as
necessary a part in the autonomy of the
lire department an a human member.
The more intelligent the horse is the
quicker the eugine or truck which he is
helping to haul will he at the scone of a
fire. Ilorses that enter into the spirit of
the work as heartily as the firemen are al
most invaluable, for every moment saved
frequently counts for much in saving
rife and property, it follows that the
training ol' the horses which are added
ever)' year to the department is ns im
portant as the training of the firemen,
who must learn to handle the hose, ax
and scaling ladder with expertness. Al
though that branch of the service is
heard of seldom by thc general public.
Chief Bonner gives it tho strictest atten
tion, and the recruits in horseflesh have
to go through an ordeal just as severe as
that which their human allies must un
The training stables in West Ninety
ninth street are in a quiet neighborhood
and the new building is used also as the '
department's horse hospital. Foreman
joseph Shea', who is also Dr. Shea,' has
charge of the stables. He was grad
uated as a veterinary surgeon and has
bean connected with the department for
eleven years. His position is one of the
most important in the department. He
looks after all the sick horses in the
engine houses, and is kept busy at the
hospital with the horses laid up.there.
He buya the green horses for the depart
ment, accepting them only after they
have shown their ability to do the work
Tho commissioners allow $300 for the
purchase of each horse, and Dr. Shea
makes his selection from the big bunches
of western horses in the Bull's Head
market He always selects a horse of
good size, generally blocky, with plenty
of muscle. The horse that has speed and
strength in good proportion is the horse
that Dr. Shea is looking for constantly.
TRAINING NEW HORSES.
There are 800 horses in active service
in the department, and about fifty re
cruits have to be added each year. They
usually go up to the Ninety-ninth street
stable on trial, half a dozen at a time,
and Dr. Shea has a month in which to
accept or reject any one or all of the lot
In that time he can tell whether the
horse ia likely to be of any value.
As soon as the green horses arrive
they are housed comfortably in the third
story of the stable. Three roomy box
stalls are there, too, and their doors indi
cate hard usage. "Some of those green
horses,'' one of the stablemen said,
"don't seem to know anything else bat
how to kick, and they do that with a
vengeance." All of the new recruits do
not take kindly to their new quarters
and still less to the training. In the
ground story the green horse gets his
first lesson. He is usually four or five
years old and barely broken to harness.
A part of the story is partitioned off for
atender or hose cart The customary
big fire gong is on the wall, and all of
the alarms from Morrisania to the
Battery are sounded. In stalls beside
tba tenders the raw recruits are broken
in, two at a time. At first they moat
become accustomed to the sound of the
big gong. Most horses are so confused
by the clanging that they are absolutely
intractable for awhile. Some never get
accustomed to the noise, and these are
rejected. In the course o? a day or two
the average recruit begins to understand.

Measles More Fatal Than InBuensa.
The mortality from measles exceeds
anything that can thus far be directly
attributed to influenza. It appears that
over 13,000 deaths from measles occur
annually in England and Wales, and the
rate of mortality has greatly increased
during the last decade. Why do we
take no account of it? Because, I sup
pose, measles is most fatal to infant?,
whereas influenza chiefly carries off tho
aged. We all of us expect to grow old,
but we can none of us hope to be young
again. Yet the Ufe of a healthy infant
is of more value than that of a sexage
