A Slrnwborry Short-Cnkc.
" Ob, Janey I do you think you conld
make a strawberry short-cako V
Little Robort Converse had been run
over by a great cart as he was trying to
dispose o a lot of evening papers, and
the life had beon almost crushed out of
liim. But he was better now, and though
he could never walk again in this world,
and mnBt always bo cared for and waited
on by somebody, he was nevertheles9 quito
cheerful, and at times almost joyous.
"I guess I could make a strawberry
short-cake." the boy's sister replied, " if
jiow mind you, Itobby if I hadthestraw-
berries and tbe othor tmngs, ana u i
knew how, but "
" Three ifs and one but," the invalid
interrupted. "That isn't a bit like you,
Janov. I have cot tweuty-ftvo cents, you
know, that Boyd's friend gavo me. Won't
Ibat cet the strawberries and thinns?
AVhy, I could stir up a short-cake in two
xninutes and a nait."
" How would you do it V" Janey in
quired, her pretty forehead puckered a
little as the magnitude of tho job loomed
up before her.
" Why, I should take sorae flour, and
water, and strawberries, and stir 'em all
'toeether. Then I should put the stuff in
the oveu and bake it till it was as light as
" You mean till it was as heavy as leatl,"
Janey replied, laughing heartily. " No,
no, Robby, that's not the way to make a
fhort-cake. But if you can trust me, and
promise not to be disappointed, if I don't
aucceed, i-n see wnat i can ao."
" Oh I Janey I suppoae this money isn't
enough to get the thinps with ? Won't
it be too bad, now that l've set my heart
The boy's eyes were full of tears as he
handed tbe londly-chenshed silver-piece
to his sister. But llobby was only nine
years old, and was still very weak from
the terrible pain he had so lately under-
"Now, Robert Converse, you don't
mean it," said Janey, as she took the
money and tossed it gaily from one hand
to tbe other. "it anytbing should hap
pen, it is not likely that you would cry
Ofer a short-cake."
" But, Janey"
"You don't like 'buts,' you know.
Say, llobby, supposo a soldier should sit
down and cry because he couldn't have
strawberry short-cake for hia supper, what
would you think of him 7"
Robby laughed quite merrily now.
" 1 should say he'd better run hoine and
stay with his mother," he anBwered. "But
isn't this different, Janey ?"
" There is not so very much difference,"
said Janev. " You're a soldier, are you
" A funny kind of a soldier I am 1"
" But didn't you tell me the other day
that you'd try to be a soldier, Robby ?"
" Yes ; but you just think, Janey, of a
fellow being a solaier and an enemy too I
There isn't so inuch fun in that."
" I guess there isn't much fun in figbt
ing anyway," Janey responded thought
fully, "but mamma used to say that
very day brought its battle with it. To
day, Robby, ttrawberry short-cake is the
" Oh 1 I can conquer any amouut of
strawberry short-cake,'1 Robby replied
with a bright smile, and then his sister
took off her little white apron, put on her
liat, and hurried out to make her pur
chases. Janey Converse was father, mother, and
sister to her two brothers. Boyd, flfteon
years old, was a clerk in a hardware store
aud earned four dollars a week. Janey
lnended stockings for several f amilies, and
did a little fme washing and ironing, and
eoniotimes earned two dollars in the
course of a week. But Janey, with all
her capability, womanliness, and philos
opby, was not quite fourteon, ond the re
spoiiBibility of her position seemed en-
tirely out of proportion to her years and
sirengin. uut janey was courageous, laitb
f ol, and trustinjr. When her mother was
dying she had said to her weeping little
aaugmer, uememDer, Jauoy, tbat noth'
iuR can really hurt vou from the outside.
You may be perplexed and troubled, but
you canuot be destroyed unless you de
8troy yourself. If you do your duty, and
are cheerful and unselash, you will be
happy yourself and make those about vou
liappy. Keep the windows of your soul
opeu to tne aunsbiue, and your beavenlv
Father will see tbat you have light and
love as long as you livo."
All this Janey uudorstood perfectly,
and, Detter stui, believcd it, and so was
strong to do her duty. There had been
oome doubt in tho young house-keeper's
mind about her duty in this short-cake
business. A very sraall matter, one might
say, out it was only by tbe closest calcu
lation tbat Janey could provide the abso
luto necessanes for her little f amily. Tbe
following week Boyd must have a now
pair of shoes and a hat, aud these tliingu
had to be arrauged for. Twenty-flve cents I
What a triiling sum to most people, and
what a fortune to noor little Janev 1 Ua.
der the oiroumstances, strawberry short
cake was curtainly a pieco of reokless ox
travagance, but Robby had not slept well
the night before, and had seemed unusu-
ally weak and restless all dav. and Janev
declded it waa her duty to be extrnvagant.
So she hastened from one store to another,
and when she had made all her purchases,
consisting of a pouud of flour, iivo cents ;
tbreo cents' worth of lard, half a pint of
milk, two cents ; and a box of strawber
ries, seven cents ; half a pouud of sugar,
fivo cents she stopped for a moment at a
house whore she was iu tbe habit of going
after stookings to meud, and inqulred of
tho cook how to put the short-cake to-Setbor.
" 1' alth, and 1 dunno," tne cook repued.
' It's moself that's sore at heart with all
tho talk about strawberry short-cako.
Two of 'em l've made the samo as I'vo
made aforo and the mistress wouldn't
touch a blto. It's beoause sho's sick and
f ussy, I suppoae. 1 took about four eggs,"
the cook proceeded, " and nigh onto half
a pound of butter, and two cups of sugar,
At this polnt Janey burst out laughing,
" 1'm not Rolng to make that kind," she
"Make it your own way then," said
her companion, good-naturedly, " but I'll
tell yo one thing. Yo've got to have a
Janey's face foll. Her oven was a mls
erablo affair at beat, and in tho afteruoon
it never would bake ; and this fact had
entirely left her mind.
" You can bake it here as well as not,"
said tho cook, " if ye'll be after takiug
" Oh, thank you 1" said tho little glrl,
heartily. " I'll bo round in a jiffy."
" Leavo your strawberries here, and I'll
help you hull 'em,'' the kind-heaited do
mestic went on, and Janey transferred
the strawberries and hugried home.
Now Janey had no cook-book, and no
one to ask a siuglo question of. But she
had made biscuit, and if she could make
nice biscuit, why not a certain kind of
strawberry short-cake ? It might be an
original kind, but Janey waa pretty confi
dent it would bo eatable.
" Oh, Janey, did you get 'em 7" Robby
inqulred, aa his sister took off her hat and
put on a cooking-apron.
" All right ao far," she replied ; " but I
must hurry just as fast as 1 can, so as to
be in titue lor Boyd. Oh, Robby, won't
he be surprised to finda strawberry short
cake waiting for him I "
" Oh, yes 1 " said Robby ; " but, Janoy,
I want to ask you sometbinp;. While vou
were goue I thought about praying for
prayiug for for what I wanted. Would
that have been right, Janey 7"
" Why didn't you say what you began
to say, Robby 7" his" sister inquired.
" Praying lor strawberry short-cake."
" 1 don't know," Robby responded, with
a llusbed and puzzled face, "only it
sounded foolish somehow."
" Ihat's what I think, ' said tho small
"But why, Janey 7 Mamma used to
say that we must ask for everything we
" No," said Janey, " for everything wo
needed : and tbat's a very clilterent tbing,
"That's so," said llobby, "and 1'm
clad I didn't do it."
All this time Janey was getting her
thincs tocether. She broucht out a little
yellow bowl, a molding board and roll-
mg pin to matcb, and a tiny sieve. In a
very few moments the younti cook had
two layers of short-cake ready for the last
process. Iben in a twinkling the con
coctiou was whisked over to the neigh-
bor s aud lnto tbe oven. Jlhe strawberries
were washed and sugared, and then Janey
ran back to set the supper-table for Rovd
At last everything was ready, even to the
A9 Janey, with the treasure in her
bauds, was passing out of the basement
door, the geutleman of the houae entered
and accosted ber.
" What have you there, little girl 7" he
"A strawberry short-cake, sir," Janey
replied, " aud iindget was kind enough to
let me bake it in her oven.'
" Did you make it yourself 7" waa the
" les, sir."
" Would you mind mv takine it up
stairs and showing it to my wifo 7" the
gentleman went on. " I have an idea that
tbia la just tbe kind of short-cake she bas
been wishinc for."
" I'm alraid it isn't." Janev reaponded,
earnestly. " You see, bir. I never made
one before, aud I just made it up out of
my own uead. '
iJut before tho cirl had finished the
gentleman waa half way up-atairs.
" xne mistress' mother and brother
have just arrived from the country,"
Bridget told Janey, " and dinner is served
iu tbe mistress sittinc-roora. Yourshort
cake is going the rounda of the company,
Iu about two minutes the gentleman
" Your narae ia Janey Converse, I be-
aeve t ne said.
" Well, Janey, I will cive you two dol
lars for this short-cake."
Oh I no, sir 1" Janev exclaimed. " it
didn't coat twenty-hve centa, and "
" iwo dollars for the short-cake," said
tbe gentlemau, laughing. " Uan I have
it, Janey. Going, going ''
" L made it for my brother," Janey in
terrupted, fearing he would say " gone '
before ehe could enter her protest, " and
his money bought the things," she went
on, " but I'll run home and ask him. It
won't take me five minutes "
" All right," said the gentleman. " Brid
get can keep it warm till you come back.'
'Ubi Janey I Vberes tbe sbort
cake 7" Robby inquired, as his sister ap-
peared witb empty bands, and an oager
lace. iben Janey told her story and
waited for a reply.
"Janey, Janey 1 and I wanted it sol"
poor little Robbv murmured. " I have
thought about it every minute this after-
noon, and i can t, 1 tell you, 1 can't give
" Very well I" said Janey, calmly. " It
is your short-cake, Itobby, and if you
tniuK k ngnt, ru go and bnng it home.'
" Two dollars for a short-cake I" said
Robby ; " and two dollars will 'most get
iioyd s euoes, won t it, Janey l
" Yes, llobby."
"Aud you think I ought to give it up,
don't you, Janov 7"
" I don't think it epeaka very well for a
soldier," said Janey, " to be so particular
uuuui wunt ne uas ior supper.
Robby smiled through his tears.
" You said I'd have to fight short-cake 1
he replied, " and it's awful tough."
" What, the short-cake 7" Janey asked
llobby lauohed outricht now.
" I hope they won't find it tough," he
said. " Go back, Janey, and tell the gen
tleman he can have it. Go quick, or I
may geii oui oi me notion oi it.
" Not a bit of danger," said Janey, as
she bont over and kissed the wau little
face. " You're a good soldier, llobby, and
a gouu sumiur nuver runs.
" Well 7"
Tho gentleman was waiting for his an
"Robby is willing," Janoy replied.
" And horo's your money," eald the
owuer of tho short-cake, hauding her a
out. iiy wne aiso wisbes mo to asic you
to come and eee ber to-morrow. '
Janey did not look at the bill until she
stood by her brotber's bedaide again, aud
ncr consternation at linding it a iive iu
stead of a two can be better iraaglned
tnan uesorioed. And wheu a !ew miu
utes later Brldcot camo cllmblng up the
stairs with a pieco of Janey's short-cake,
witb mistress compliments, for itobby, it
was all tho little cook could do to keop
from having a good cry.
" It's juat tho kind that mistress has
beon trying to describe to me," said
Bridget ; " and it's a good thing for you,
Mlss Janey, that you Btartod on a short
Uridcet'a words were nrophotic, for the
very next week Janey Converse was aent I
to a cooKiniviohooi, and is now a pereon
of much inlil'ortanco in tho family where

itobby bas lougbt many battles since,
but he thinks tho nardest one he was ever
engaged in was tho short-cake battle.

Story of n Iliumuny.
While the Boulevard from Macomb's
Dam bridge road to tho park waa crowded
with all kinds of pleasure equipages about
seven o'clock Tueaday eveuing, great ex
citement was produced in the vicinity of
Uno iiundred and Jbortieth street by a
frantio cry of " Clear the traek I A runa
way I Drive on tho sidewalks I" A man
in a light road wagou was driving his
horso toward the park on a ran and
screaming this wanung to tho drivers in
tne street. iiebind him, in tho middle ol
tho broad thoronghfare, a powerful roan
horse waa dashing raadly down the street,
drawing a top buggy, which swayed from
slde to side, while a little girl of thirteen
years clung desperately to the lines, with
wnite lace and stroaming hair. Jivery-1
body gave tho runaway vehicle a wide
berth. Men in light wagons whipped
their horses frantically upou the sidewalk.
coachmen drovo their carriaees hurriedlv
to the side of the road, ladies and gcntlo
men on horseback galloped wildly to the
fences, and although sympathetio women
in their carriages screamed and men
turned pale, no one made tho elightest '
effort to assist the child, who, witbout ,
looking to the right or left, waa scream-,
ing: ' Ob, won't somebody save me I Oh,
somebody stop him I AVbat shall I do I i
Ub, what shall 1 do 1" I
A qutet looking man in a clencal frock
coat, who waa meditativoly driving a
large " buckskin " horsa before a light
road wagon toward the city, heard the j
warniug cry of the man who waa trying
to clear the road, and looked around just
as tbe roan horse, on a frantic run, was
passiug One Iiundred and Thirty-ninth
street, and all the vehicles were crowding
to the left band side of the road. The
quiet man, without a moment's heaitation,
put his horse, which was a fast oue, to his
speed, and drove awiftly beside the run
"Don't be afraid I " he called coollv to
the child, who clung to tbe linea like a
little heroine. " Now, do just as I tell
you 1 Hang on to the lines, and pull most
on the left, and when I tell you to jump,
do it. Will you mind what I say 7"
" Yes," answered the little eirl : " but
save me, oh save me if you can 1 "
Tbe quiet man gave tbe buckskin horso
a cut with his whip, aud the animal broko
into a gallop, and brought the seat of his
master'a wagon even with the runaway
horse's head. The man quickly wounti
his linea about hia right hand, and with
tbe leit seized tbe runaway horse s bridle.
The frantic beast plunged and jerked his
head away, almost draggiug the man from
hia seat, and dashed on, the man losing
his hat and whip. But he at once drove
alongside the horse's head again, and
again seized the bridle, which was again
torn away from him. He drove up again
and made a third attempt, and met a like
tailure. " Don't give up," he called to the
child, who was losing courage and crying :

Twenty-sixth streets liea a heap of stones,
inortar and bricks, where a building
is in process of construction, and toward
this jagged pilo the quiet man, who
was etill driving beside and encourag
ing the girl, saw that the runaway horse
was beaded, and knew that bo must make
a fiual effort to stop the animal at once.
He drove up beside the head of the beast
again, Beized the bridle, dropped hia lines,
aud, calliug to bia own horse to stop, he
sprang to the ground, dragging the runa
way horse's head with him, and, after a
sharp struggle, brought the brute to a
standatill and took the child, who waa al
most fainting, from the buggy.
The little girl said that her father, who
had been driving with her, had been run
over at One Iiundred and Thirty-sixth
street, and that tbe horse had run from
there, a distance of more th'an a mile.
The quiet man drove back to look for the
father, and met him driving down in a
grocery wagon to look for his child, whom
be expected to find dead or dying in tho
road. He was not very badly hurt. He
said that he stopped in the road to cbeck
up his horse aud gave his little girl the
reins. Some other horses came up behlnd
and startled the animal, and it bolted.
He clung to ita head and was dragged a 1
block, when the beast got away and the
wheol of the buggy went over his own
leg. The quiet man drove them both 1
home, but deolined absolutely to say who ,
he was. His name is very well kuown in
New York, however, for the little girl's '
rescuer waa none other than the famous

the fruit is grown. From cuttinga or .
sboots which first send up two leaves
rolled tightly together until the green roll
is two or three leet high, when the blades

The plant dies down as eoou as tbe fruit
