BY MARY DWINELL DHELLIS
A difficult lesson had been
perfectly recited by only one
member of a large class ana a
eomlicated problem in arithme
tic had been solved by the same
bey. while all the others had fail
ed. This boy the teacher had
praised generously, at the same
time severely censuring those
-who deserved censure.
"I am real sorry 1 didn4t get
my lesson," exclaimed a yonn
rirl with dark brown eyes and
Drofnsion of waw hair. "1 stud

a dozen times, but I was thinking
most ail the time about some

"Well. Mr. Varney needn't
scolded so dreadfully," said an
other. "Twas an awful hard les
on. any way."
"So it was," replied the first
speaker, whom all the children
called "Brownie," without fully
appreciating the fitness of her
name. "Twas just the hardest
we ever had, so 'twould have
been all the grander to have
learned it : I wish I had. I should
think Ned Leighton would feel
real proud ; I should if I was in
"Proud!" repeated a scholar
scornfully ; 'I don't see anything
he has to be proud- of ; he s no
body but a drunkards boy.'
Hush V half whispered Brown
i, 'he'll hear you'
'What il he does? Who cares? 1
don't I tell you he is nobody
but a drunkards boy.
Alas 1 for the warning and the
boy. Ned Leighton heard the
cruel words. In his happiness
rained the approbation of his
teacher, he had forgotten that
his father was a drunkard. No
wonder he hurried away, and in
a secluded spot gave vent to his

a splendid lesson T 1 shouldn't
I was in your place.'
'Wouldn't you if your father
was a drunkard V
'I guess not,' she answered
with some hesitation. 'I'd try
and have him not be a drunkard
. 'How would you try? asked
the boy, looking up with a pitiful

There was a short silence, but
at length Brownie said, 'Yes,
Mr. Leighton was a new comer
m the village, a blacksmith, and
a good workman when free from
the influence oMiquor. The day
after the conversation above nar
rated, he was obliged to remain
in the shop much later than usual
so that the glowing light at the
forge was in striking constrast to
the darkness without From that
came a child, who seemed fascin
ated by the wierd shadows on the
blackened walls, and the fitful
leaping of the flames up the Vide
'Well, my little lady, what can
I do for you !'
"This question recalled her to
the fact that she was not in lairy
land, as she had fancied; and ex
tending some papers she held in
her hand, she said, 'Please, sir
.will you sign the pledge V
'What pledge P was asked.
The pledge not to drink any
thing that will make you drunk.
'Who are you, child V
'My name is Miriam Way, out
they call me Brownie.'
'I thought so,' responded the
man absently. "You look'like a
Brownie. What sent you here ?:
'I come because I'm sorry for
'My Ned V
'Yes, sir. One of the scholars
said he was nobody but a drunk
ard's boy, and he felt so bad
about it he cried, and I found
him hid away by himself. You
see, sir. he had his lesson just
splendid, when the rest all miss

the same if I'm a mind to.'
'Yes, sir; but that would be
telling a lie and I don't believe
you'd do that if you was sober.'
'No, child, I wouldn't I ain'i
o far gone as that, if I am
drunkard. Sit down in that chair
and I'll think about it.'
Brownie seated" herself and
watched Mr. Leighton at his
work, while he seemed wholly
unconscious of her presence. At
length he said. 'You can read
the pledge. Let's see what you
want me to promise.'
Tve get two'. I'll read them

against the use of intoxicating
drinks ; the other included to

again Mr. Leighton resumed his
work. A lew minutes elapsed,

'Just a little,' answered
Brewnie frankly. 'But you see I

'Bring me the last paper you
read.' under tne comprehen
sive pledge, Edward Leighton
wrote his name in noble charac
ters, and then nailed the paper
just above his desk, irom his
mouth he took a huge quid of to
bacco and from his pocket for
twenty quids of equal size, and
threw it into the lire.
When this was consumed, he
turned to the child beside him,
and laying his hand tenderly on
her head, murmereff: 'Ycu've
iaved me, Brownie. There'll be
a hard fight with the -flesh and
the devil; but, pi ease God, we'll
ome out all right in the end.'
The end is not yet ; But this

it must be kept in mind that the

How to Make a Rail Fence.
A correspondent of the country
uentleman, an experienced prac
tical farmer, gives his plan for
making a durable fence, which
may interest some of our readers:
I wish to call the attention of far
mers to my method of making
good fence of rails, as some of
your readers may as I do dislike
the zigzag fence on account of
the amount of land it occupies.

the dimculty in cultivating, mow

is to take two posts, and set them
just far enough apart to admi
the rails between them (small
posts will answer very well)
sharpen and drive with a good
heavy mall into holes made with
a crow bar. Then,with a bit,bore
a hole through each about twen
ty or twenty-four inches above
the ground, and drive an. iron
rod through the two posts.
Old lightning rod makes good
rods, and may be ea6ilv cut with
a cold chisel and broken off the
right length. Then lay your first
rail on the rod between the
The lower rail of the nextepan
el is to lay on the end of the first
rail laid, and so on. . In laying
the second rail, place a chunk be
tween the rails at the starting
point of the line of fence, and
then lap wherever the ends of
the rails meet as in the first place.
Before placing the top rail pass a
cap of galvanized wire around
the posts, and then put on the
top rail. Then with plow and
spade, make a ridge or embank
ment to within six inches of the
lower railand you have a neat
strong, and durable fence.

fence can be made with only four
or five rails to each panel, thus
economizing in the amount of
