UNCLE PETER'S DREAM.
BY AUNT ROSIE.
It was Monday afternoon, and ilrs,
Brown had finiahAil
bad mopped np hex kitchen, and made
a frosh fire in the store : had filled her
-iio, uu put pan oi apples in
the oven for tea ; while on the table
ready to bake when thev
" Now," said she to herself, " I must
look np the boys, and then run up
stairs and change ' toy dress." She
went to the kitchen-door,' and called in
a clear, melodious -voice, ' E-d-d-i-e I
C-h-a-r-14-e !" Then she listened ; but
she heard ' nothing save the humming
and droning of the flies ia the sunshine,
the deep clucking of the old hen to her
brood, the sharp, wiry- "peep-peep" of
the HtUaehiekaj. in -answer, .and tha
plaintive, incessant bleating of the
sheep and lambs on the hillside. These
Bounds of lower bfe,unmingled withha
man voices, made her feel lonely they
seemed o dreamy and unreiL .So sue
stepped out into the little garden, and,
deftly putting aside the white clothes
which . nung on the lines,' she passed
through, and called again. She heard
voices coming from the barn ; but they
were angry voice. She soon reached
the door and opened it ; and there
stood Charliey. with folded arms and
flashing eves, looking - definance ' at
Eddie, while the remains of a windmill
lay scattered at his feet- " I think yon
are just as mean as you can be," said
Eddie, as his mother entered. " What
i the matter, boys I" she said. "I
this the way for brothers tometV- "Xo,
Mother," said Charlie? "but Eddie
does torment and tantalize me so when
I am busy, that I can't stand it"
"Mother," said Eddie, "Charley is
awful selfish. " I asked him to fix my
windmill for me ; and - while he - was
working on it he wouldn't let me lay a
finger on it or touch any. of my things. '
Then he got mad at ma, . and threw it i
down there and broke it all to
I do think Be is real mean." "Oh,"
Charley 1" said his mother, turning to
him, "you certainlv can' think it is
ngut to act so I
a J? of-'Mev gtt biscuit,
it w uue wxiea sney came ouu
'No, Mother, I suppose it isn't" he
' but Eddie is a real torment
to me, besides he does not tell all the
truth about it I was making a box for
my - nails and screws, and was very
busy. - He was fussing over his wind
mill, and he begged and, teased me to
to fix t-hft whfv1 -. nn T ruit nn-a-v mw
things, and tried to do it for him as'Sv
nice as I could - But lie wouldn't get
out of -my" way; and he got me out of
patience ; so I threw it at him," i nd
told him I wouldn't do any more at it,
and then it broke." Mrs. Brown looked
sorrowfully at the boys for a moment,
and said: "Suppose Uod should iake
one of yon away, how would all this
quarreling seem, -to 'yew then! My
aebX boys, dont wait to love each other
till it is too late. Coma into the house
now and - think this matter over, and
you will find that yon both have been
to blame." .. . ,V ;i. " v
Mrs. Brown went back into the house
with a heavy beart; and, aaaoonasehe
got into her own; roonv phe knelt and
implored God'a. hi psairtg-oa - her sons,
and prayed Sot wisdom -to guide them.
Id a few minutes Eddie came rushing
into 'her room. ,Mothere said he,
"old". Peter .Blake ! is" oorning .up the
road Can't I - ask- him in- io eaf "
"Yes, if yoa like" "fche. replied. "JIo
must be very weary; for this is the an
niversary of his brother's death, and he
has been over to the cemetery to dress 1
bis grave with flowers."
Eddie didn't wait to hear all this; but
away be flew, kicking over a chair and
leaving the doors all wide' open' after
him. Bushing down through the gar-, j
den and ont at the gate, the impulsive
boy did not Btop till he reached the
old man, who was slowly toiling up the
street1 " Mother says you are to come
in and take tea withe us, Uncle.. Peter;
and yoa will, won'tyou?' he said, all
out of breath. ' "Well, my son," said
the old man,, stopping still and resting
with both hands on bis stout walKing-
stick, ''"I can't say that I object Your
mother is always ao good te me ; and aw
are her feoys.'' - - .
. So Eddie, .brought him- iiv in great
triumph; and Charlie drew the large
arm chair ont into the- porch, so that
Uncle Teter could enjoy the beautiful
sunset ' After welcoming the old man,
Mrs. Brown went back into the house
to complete her preparations for tea,
leaving the ' children to entertain him.
The boys sat on the steps at his feet
and told him bita of- village newa and
gossip, which they thought might in
terest him.' At last be said: "As I
ait here . and .look .; at yyoa two
boys, 1 it i takes me - back. . oh ( so
many years, whea J. was .young,- and
my brother was my oonstantcompanioo
and playmate.' '" You loved each other
ever so much, didn't yoa ? " said Eddie,
getting -up and leaning on the arm 1
the old man's chair. . , " Olv yea, my
aon, we did, indeed ; but there was one
time when ' our love came' near reing
shipwrecked by our quarrels and disa
greements. Bui j dream, opened our
eyes, and we saw the rock and steered
clear of it" " Oh' said Eddie, "please
teil.tw the dream." "Oh, yes, do,"
joined In Charlie.'. So Uncle Peter
leaned bis head back ia bia ohoir, and .
shut up his eyes, and began f
" Will was much younger than I, and
much more impulsive." ' Because I was
older,-1 thought I might be tyraimical I
and dictatorial to him.,. .Of course this
kind -of treatment -a my- part -drove
him away from me, and he sought the
society -of other boys, nhoJdliuriintoj

he used to think everything I did was
right, and I could have done so "much
for him then by good examples and

and he soon became teasing and trying

Something for Our Young Readers.
'' Our very pleasant " eo temporary,
Hearth and Home, tell its young read
ers how to take a coin out of water
without welting the hand, and this is
their method : Fill a plate with water
to the depth of about a quarter of an
inch a coin is then placed in the wa
ter; a piece of paper is then lighted,
and put, while burning, on tho surface
of the water, and covered with ' a tum
bler.. As the paper burns under- the
tumbler, the water will rush up under
the tumbler, and leave the coin in the
plate, when it may be lifted without
wetting the fingers.- This is very in

Some Old Watches.
From the Boston Traveller.
On the Waltham table at the Woman - ' ;
Suffraire Bazaar there is a case of eun-''
ous old watches to be"seen7 some -of .
them the oldest in the country. These '
show the- progressive steps of watch- '
since 1600" up to the- present - :
time. 'Among them ia-one made by"
Linnebac at Orleans, about the yearsi -'
1600, before screws or haiMprings were
used. " It is a small silver watch, the 1
"barrel " and "fusee," and tho power -'
is communicated from one to the other -:n'
bv means of horse-hair or -something of-' ,
tfistkind." y-"'- -iwi
t There is also a ""very ancient "bull'a t
eve" that seems to have seen hard ser-' ;a
vice; ' its face" is scarred and its hand ii-s
gone. - This one was made by Alexaa 5,'- :
dre fifty or sixty years later than the - '
other.'" This to some extent is held to- '.
gethrr .by screws, , and haa the bair r
spring, and a chain instead of the horse- , ,
hair,, ' Though old and full of years it v' 5"'
yet retains, soma ; vitality. ' : Both .of - 1 : 4
these watches Jiave the verge escape- e , ,.
meat, ' which requires them to,be twice "'' '
thick as those now made. 1 v
Another one is yery curious in ooa;-,tla
strootion and interesting from'assooia-
tion. This belonged to the' Duke of "'
Wellington, and wa obtained from
Grattan whan he was hist in this eoun
try. It is large enongh to fill a watch "
pocket three times -the present siz tiy.i
The carving on the gold case represents- iin
battle-field. . with tents, -cannon and .
implements of war ' on one side is an t "

excitement, then asked the boy what he -r
would take for the whole basket of ap.
plea, saying, it would be a grand spec
ulation. But the lad refused to sell"
even at five cents apiece, and, on, leav- -ing
the station. Blitz saw him seated

apples, in a vain search for silver half-. i
dollars. : - v
