Then tlieru were Walt, aed nineteen,
ami Knss, twenty-one; tall, liony, mus
cular young men, loud-voiced, full of
coaiMi fun and brag. How Milton (that
was the naino of J.ittlu brother) could
havo been onu of th naino family, and
yet no wholly unlike these threewas a
Miliject of wondering remark to every
body who knew thriu.
The nickname had not been bestowed
upon him out of tenderness, I am worry
to f-ay, but rather out of contempt.
They could not understand how any
body should bo so fond of books and
pictures, fireside (piiet and his mother's
Tim" truth was, Milton loved fun m
w ell as they, but a very different sort of
fun; and it was his divad of their rude
ways which drove him to the chimney
corner an I the shelter of his mother's
affection. She was n gentle, quiet wom
an, to be the mother of three such bois
terous young men; and the youngest
bov was nntii rail v her pet.
Many a time alio had to take his part
again.-? the U runny he sullcred from
them, evpeciafiy from Lull'. Not that
Lull' was vicioti-lv cruel to Liulo Broth
er; being so unlike him, he never knew
how cruel some of hi.-tricks really were.
If he thought of anything Milton espe
cially abhorred, like the ,-ight of a rep
tile, or the bliwxl-curdling shriek of a
charpening saw, he took a strange do
light in inflicting it upon him.
"He's got to get lined to such things,"
he would nay, when the mother reproved
him; "what's theuno of hi being a baby
all his life?" '
"But what's the use of your torment
ing the life out of him when you know
that ho can't endure such things?'' she
many times had ocra-ion to reply, with
eyes that could flau when the was
Gentle as she was, she had much re

would turn laughingly away at such
tfms, with a rareless, "Oh, wall 1 won't
bother Little Brother any more!" and
perhaps play another trick upon him
within an hour.
Mr. Keeler, b kind-hearted but not a
very refined man, also took the part of

Milton ought to mind their jokes.
"Now, boys!" he said one day, as he
was about leaving home, "don't you go
to plaguing Milton while I'm awav; do
leafe him in peace for once, if only to
please your mother."
They were digging a well in the rattle-yard;
they had reached a ledge which
they had to "bla-t, and Mr. Keeler was
driving to town to get some drills sharp
ened. "Now, Milton!" he said to Little
Brother, who held the gate open for him
to drive through, "help your brothers
ami don't mind their nonsense."
"What you call nonsense is sometimes
awful to me!" replied the boy from the
ground. "Why can't they let mo
"They would, if you wouldn't pay
any attention to their jokes," said his
"I can't help paying attention!" Mil
ton exclaimed. "What docs LulT catch

the well and make believe be is going
to tumble nie in?"
"Rut you know he won't!" said his
"Of course I know he won't. But I
don't like, to be held at tho brink of tho
well and made to look down with him
pushing me! It gives nin a horrihlo
feeling!" And tears started totho boy's
' "Well, well! I don't think he will do
it any more; any way, try not to mind
it if ho docs." with which mildly con
soling words Mr. Keeler drove off to
It, was some time before Milton went
to the yard where the work was going
on. Tlmt gave Lull' a chnnce to forget
his father's parting charge to him and
to prepare another trick for Little
"Milt! Mill!" he calW. "They're
waiting for you!"
As Milt knew that he was expected to
help Lull' draw Walt and Ktiss up out of
tho well, he reluctantly left the kitchen
corner and his book and went out in
answer to the call.
Lull' stood amid the rubbish at the
edgo of tho well leaning on the windlass
ami looking down. Milton, ns he drew
nigh, could hear the sternly click-cUckot
the sledge and drill below.
llo walked carefully around to tho op
posite rIiIo of tho well from Luff, and
looking in. Raw Urns and Walt mill at
work, with no npnearnnco of stopping.
"You told mo they were waiting," he
Mil. "Tlmy nro not half ready yet,"
"Yes, they nro," repllod Luff, with a
Bohnr look on his red, chubby face.
"They are going to tamp now, and they
want 'tho fuse. Htm ami fetch it."
"Where 1 it?" MiltQfl Kited, - -
'Why, under that board there; don't
yon know? Hurry!"
Little Brother did not ask why Luff
could not have got the fuse, Instead of
calling him from tho house before even
the tamping was begun; nor did ho sus
pect it trick. Ho ran to tho board, lifted
it with ono hand, hastily put tho other
on something coiled up there, nndt,VM-lcA
back with a shriek of horror.
Luff roared with laughter, leaning on
the windlass, which fairly shook with
"Why don'tyou bring the fuse, Milt?"
ho cried, choking with mirth. "What's
the matter with tho fuse?"
"It's a snake! You knew it was n
snake!" gasped poor Little Brother, still
shuddering from tho shock.
"The fuse ain't a snake!" said Luff.
"Tho fuse is there, too. I didn't mean
for you to get the snake."
"But 3011 knew I would soo it. und
it's airiicii dinmikiin;; trick!" Milton
"Of coiirm 1 kticw'you would see it,"
said 1. "Bi.t it won't hurt you. It' a
"I know it won't hurt me. It wouldn't
hurt me, if it wasn't dead," cried Liulo
Brother, his eyes flashing as his moth
er's could son eiiinuii tksli. "But 1
dread the n;hu,t a snake, dead or
alive; you know it, and that's what you
sent me to t! e h for."
'I sent yi j ii 1 ',-( to euro you of being
such a ct;wr,i,': said Luff, "still laugh
Ing. but not s'l heartily as at first.
'No, you didn't!" "Milton declared.
"You wanted to have uomo low, silly,
hateful sport; that's what you did itfor.
You didu't thinl: anything about curing
me of ntn;r a coward. You know,
though I don't like some things you do,
and which I'm glad I don't like, fun
with dead snakes, for instance, you
know I'm no more a coward than you
The boy's color had conio back into
his checks, his voice rang out with spir
it, and his blue eyes sparkled as he told
his brother this truth.
"You're careful to keep out of my
reach w hen you say that," said Luff.
"That shows you're a coward."
"It shows that I don't like you and
your ways; thafs what it shows!" re
plied the boy. "If 1 don't like a certain
thing, I can't help it; whether it's a
dead snake, or a big brother."
"Oh!" Luff sneered, trying not to show
that he was cut by this sharp retort.
"I could go and tbku hold of that,
snake if it was prcrs-ary; I shouldn't
like to, but I could doit." I could hug
you, too, if it would do cither of us any
good. But I don't see that it will, and
so I'd rather have nothing to do with
either of you."
Milton did, however, walk resolutely
up to the board, take the innocent little
reptile on a stick, and fling it away out
of the yard.
Lull' did not often see him show so
much spirit, yet he should have learned
before this that the delicate and sensi
tive boy coii do the most disagreeable
things, with unliiriching resolution, if,
as he said, it was "necessary."
Luff actually re-cnted what he had
provoked him to say, and began tothink
of some other trick to play off upiiti Lit
tle Brother. As he could not at once
invent a new one, however, he resolved
to try an old one again.
Milton did not like to be held overthe
brink of the well. He had also a great
dread of the sound of the blast, and
would rIyvhv. when it was tired, hold
his ears ami run from it as far as pos
sible. "I'll catch him and hold him, after
thefu-c is lighted." thought Lull'. "That
will give him a good scare."
He ni'l nothing, however, until the
bla-t bad been charged and tamped,
and Ku--s ;iiid Walt were ready to come
up out of the well.
"(live me a turn here now, Milt,"
said Luff, soberlv. "No more fooling!"
It will do for you to say no more
foolinj .'" Milton replied, slowly ap
proaching the windla.-s. "It's you that
do it all."
"Well, fun is fun, and work is work,"
said Luff. "Now it's work's turn.
Catch hold here!"
Little Brother laid hold of the spokes
ou one side of the windlass and lifted.
Luff pulled down on tho other side.
The strong rope wound up on the roller,
bringing the great bucket up from tho
bottom of the well, with Walt in it.
Walt stepped out, blinking nt fthe
strong daylight, and the bucket was let
down again for Buss.
When it rested on the bottom, both
Luff and Milton, from opposite sides of
the windlass, looked down to seo Buss
light, the fuse. This was designed to
burn long enough for him to get out of
the well and at a safe distance from it
before the blast should explode.
Luff seemed never to have been think
ing less of a trick than at that moment
when he was diligently considering how
ho should manage to capture Little
Brother, and how near ho should ven
turotohold him when the explosion
Tlio well was about twenty-five feet
deep, a gloomy pit; but under the shade
of their hat-brims they could seo two
little gleams of light at the bottom.
Ono camo from a pool of water in a
hollow of the ledge, reflecting the sum
mer sky. The other was tho blaze of a
match Buss had just struck.
Huvinr touched tho end of the fuse
i and seen it catch and sparkle, Buss
stepped quickly into the bucket, laid
hold of the rope, and, calling out,
"Haul away!" was drawn up by Lull'
and Milt as Walt had been before.
Walt, meanwhile, had carried away
from tho well tho powder which camo
up in the bucket with him; and, bavin
lighted his pipe, ho was now walking
leisurely back to the windlass.
"Take my plaeo here, won't you,
Walt?" Millon said, when tho bucket
was about half way up.
It is uncertain whether ho suspected
Luff's intentions towards him, or wheth
er he simply wished to get as far away
as possible from the sound of tho blast.
Luff made no objections, and Walt, pine
in mouth, laid hold of the spokes of tho
Trobably Milt did not think that even
tho reckless Luff could neglect his im
portant trust for a little cruel sport at tv
time like that. He drew aside from tho
windlass, as Walt took his place, pass
ing almost within Luff's reach.
"Hold on, Walt!" crlml Luff, Iho
moment he saw the spokes in his broth
er's powerful grasp. And letting go his
own hold with one hand, he made a
swoop with it at unsuspecting Little
Brother, and caught him by tho ami.
OAIKO BULLETIN: WEDNESDAY MORNItfU,
"Oh, ouit your fooling now!" said
Walt, with tho pipe in his lips; while
Little Brother struggled to get away.
Walt was well able alone to draw tho
bucket up; but Luff was still trying to
help him, while holding on to Milton
with 0110 hand.
"Don't kick! don't sipieal!" ho said,
laughingly. "No use! You've got to
stay here till that blast goes off, if it,

Terrified at this threat, Milton gave
so violent a jerk that ho nearly cot free.
To save and balance himself, Luff put
back one foot, which htruck a loose stone
and sent it tumbling over tho mound of
rubbish into the well.
The rattling sound was followed by a
strange eeulHing movement below, then
a heavy plunging thud, and the bucket
was empty. The stone had struck Buss
on the head, and ho had fallen, to tho

to his senses. He let Millon go, and,

Luff's grap, had not run far, w hen this
frightful catastrophe brought him back

for tho moment his terror of the blast,

cried, in answer to Walt's question.

moment. "We can't do anything!"
And he began hurriedly to draw up the

He made a spring at the rope, caught
it, and clasping it with hands and
knees, slid down to the bucket. Then
ho called out wildly, "Let down! let
down!" his delicate, "pale, excited face
turned up at his brothers in the soften
ed light which shone into the well.
The firm daring with which he went
dow n to what seemed certain death fas
cinated his brothers above. Instead of
retreating to avoid tho blast, as they
were on the point of doing, they let
him rapidly down.
lie was out, of the bucket before it
touched the bottom. He snatched at
the fuse, but it had already burnt into
the tamping, and be. could not get hold
to pull it out. There was only one oth
er thing to be done.
He drew his groaning brother out of
the pool, and found still water enough
where he had lam. so that a little could
be scooped up with his hands.
This be used; and there, over tho
blast which might at any time explode,
with rock-tearing and earth-shakiug
force, he dashed dripping handful after
handful upon the tamping, down under
which the fuse had disappeared, and ex
tinguished the last spark of lire. Then
he fell fainting beside his brother at the
bottom of the Well.
When he came to himself he was ly
ing on the ground in the open air.
Buss, hatless, with blood tricklingdown
his check, and locks of matted hair
straggling over his eyes, was sitting up
beside liiin. Ills father was there, on
one knee, and his mother came running
from the house, with a Is t ie in her
hand. Walt and Lull' stood looking on,

"How could you do such a thing? my

er. "I saw that somebody must do it. or
Kuss would he killed, and 1 thought I
had time, if I did it at once." Milton
said, with a feeble smile; adding mod
estly, "Walt and Luff helped."
"Mightly little we helped!" Walt ex
claimed, with an outburst of honest feel
ing, "luiss niigiit nave ueen mown 10
Hinders, for nnvthing we would have

age in Little Brother than there is in

He was not the only one w ho at that
moment felt that to see a great danger,
and greatly to dread it, and yet to have
the heart and resolution to brave it for
another's sake, is the very highest cour
age. "How did it all happen? how did it
begin?" Kirss inquired, hardly yet re
covered from his stupor.
"I began it, I'm ashamed to say,"
Lull' confessed, following Walt's exam
ple, and speaking from tlio deepest feel
