WAS HE A HERO!
sort of boy. His light brown hair
was generally very much tumbled up,
his face was plain and freckled, and his
honest hazel eyes did not sparkle or
glow, or do anything in particular but
enable their owner to see. He was
fourteen years old, a strong, healthy
lad, very fond of play and not a bit
fond of study or work. So, take him
all in all. Jack was not such a boy as
one would naturally select for a horo.
Jack's home was on an island
Winona Island, wo will call it lying in
the Shatcmuu Kiver about forty pules
from the sea. All around the island,
which stretched its rocky length a mile
along the western side of the river,
rose grand highlands covered to the
summit with "the forest primeval."
Hetween the western shore and the
island lay a broad salt marsh, and be
yond the marsh, for miles and miles,
spread out an almost trackless forest.
. On the eastern side flowed the river, at
this point half a mile wide and more
than a hundred feet deep. It was rather
a wild spot for a home, and a rough
place in which to pass a winter. But
in summer it was rarely beautiful, and
a tine place for every kind of boyish
There were, besides Jack's family,
two othcin living on the island, and in
each was a boy about Jack's ago. Joe
Kiesler was a little older, ana a good
deal smarter so everybody thought
than Jack. Charley Grant was a year
younger, and a sort of body-servant to
the two older boys, who liked him and
tyrannized over him to their hearts'
content. The three lads generally got
on together very pleasantly. There
was plenty for them to do. They
played at work when required, and
worked at play with all their might
whenever they could get off from the
drudgery of "chores" and working in
the vineyards and nurseries on the isl
and. They were all good boatmen,
' and could pull as steady a stroke, and
"feather" their oars as neatly, as the
best man on the island. They each
had a boat, a stanch little craft, built
of cedar, light and easily handled, but
able to stand a heavy sea; and many
were the races tho boys had, up and
down the river, and across it, and in
among the coves and bights of the isl
and snore. When the wind swept down
from the northwest, and the tide was
running out, it was tough work pulling
up-stream. Sometimes the boats would
remain "stock still" for half an hour
where the tide rushed around some
jutting point, and the boys would have
to pull with might and" main to keep
from going back, instead of forward:.
But it was rare fun (seeing it wasn't
work!), and it made their muscles
like bowstrings for strength and sup
pleness There were other sports, too tishing,
hunting, swimming, climbing the
mountains on the mainland, ana splen
did skating in winter. And in the fall,
after the early frosts had done their
duty as nut-burr openers, there was a
line chance for chestnutting. On the
upper part of the island, which was so
rocky that it could not be cultivated,
was a thick wood; and amoog tho prim
cedars and stalwart oaks were a few
grand old chestnut trees, from which
bushels of shiny nu could be gathered
and of course toere gathered in tho
It was a pleasant morning toward the
end of October. Jack and Joo had
been lounging about the dock for an
hour or so, watching the river craft as
they swept by in the fresh breeze, and
talking boy-talk about nothing in par
ticular. Presently Charley came run
ning down with a bag.
"Hullo, fellers, let's go ches'nut
ting." " All right! come on," said Joe, tak
ing the leadership, as usual; and oil
went the three, as happy as larks. In
a few minutes they wero up in the great
trees, and nuts we're rattling down like
hailstones on the thick carpet of brown
and yellow leaves beneath them. After
giving each tree a thorough shaking,
the boys came down to gather up the
spoils and make a division.
how It was a part of the unwritten
Constitution tho Common Law of the
Winona Republic, that when tho three
boys went nutting together they should
"share and share alike." This was
fair enough, because it could not be told
which one shook down the most, and
the gathering was always "thrown in"
as too small a matter to be considered.
So they would gather up all they could
find, put them in a single heap, and di
vide by hondfuls. This made a pretty
even division, and nobody had any just
cause for complaint.
But to-day, an ugly spirit of mischief
or perversity seemed to have got
under Master Joe's jacket. When they
had poured their glossy treasures into
the common heap he began to make the
division, but every second time around
he put two bandfuls instead of one into
his own pile.
" What are you doing there?" asked
Jock, with a slight touch of fierceness
in his tone.
" I'm dividing," said Joo, briefly.
"You ain't doing it fair, anyway,"
" You shut up!" was Joo'b emphatic
rejoinder; and Charley dared say uo
" Now look a-herel" said Jack, get
ting Inti) a heat. " You can' I eome t hat
tame on us. Divide fair, or you sha'n't
divide at all."
" I'd like to know who's going to
prevent me I"
Joe wns getting uglier every minute.
What was merely a spirit of mischief at
the start had now become a hard,
wicked purpose to Itf. unfair, in spite of
everything. Jack Jumped to his feel,
the lire in his heart bursting into a hot
and furious thime.
"It's a mean trick, and you're a
mean fellow to do it, so there now!"
Tho two hoys had always been pood
friends. Tin y had had their " tills,"
liko other hoys, but these were littlo
allairs and soon made up; for the lmls
wero really very fond of each other,
and could not bear to be at enmity long.
But hero was a more serious allnir. On
the one side an act of outrageous in
justice on the other an accusation that
no boy of spirit, especially if ho de
served it, could endure for a moment.
Joo was on his feet now, and with
clinched fists and angry face shouted,
"Say that again, if you dare!"
There was an instant's pause. Poor
little Clyirloy stood by in an ngonv of
wonder and fear. It was not a picas
ant sceno to witness in the plcauant
woods on that bright October day.
But angry passions spoil many a lovely
ymy in uitf Aim wi.im ui imisi
" I do dareMo say it airain, and you
know it's true!" said Jack, with a hot
flush on his freckled face.
Tho words had scarcely passed his
lips when Joo, stung to fury by the
taunt, sprang forward and planted a
heavy blow in Jack's face. It was an
ugly deed the lirst blow he had ever
struck, except in fun.
Now, if Jack had been a hero, he
would probably have put himself in
lighting attitude, and " pitched in" for
a regular battle with his angry friend.
They would have had a furious fight,
and after mauling each other for some
timo and getting black eyes and bloody
faces, would have shaken hands anil
"made up." If he had been tho kind
of boy wo read of sometimes but sel
dom meet ho would perhaps havo
said, with disarming mildness and dig
nity, " Joseph, I am sorry if I have hurt
your feelings, and although you havo
struck me, 1 forgive you, and ask to bo
Perhaps somethinglike that in spirit,
at least would have been better, on
the whole, than what 4ack did.
But Jack was neither a physical nor
a moral hero, to any great extent. He
was afraid to tight Joe, who was bigger
and stronger than he; and he h ml not
the slightest inclination to make up
with him in any way. He simply turned
around without another word, and
walked rapidly away. But his boyish
heart was in a very tumult of angry
passion. "I'll get even with him, some
way!" was the one thought that surged
through his breast, as he tramped
homeward through the leafless woods,
and past the vineyards and hot-houses;
and if any means of doing Joe a serious
injury had occurred to Viim at tho mo
ment, he would probably have jumped
at it as a trout jumps at a tempting fly
in August. Fortunately, no such un
happy chance presented itself, and
Jack had timo to cool off before being
able to avenge the cruel insult he had
For several days the boys kept apart.
Joe was too proud to "own up," and
Jack too angry to have anything to do
with him. Charley had a hard timo of
it' between them, for they both wanted
him to be with them, and scolded and
threatened to " lick" him if he went
with the other. All the usual full
sports wore neglected. October faded
into November, and the first week
proved a cold and stormy one. The
tierce northwest winds came howling
down tho mountain sides, lashing tho
river into foamy "white caps, and
putting the hardy river craftsmen to
their utmost skill to avoid an upset in
the narrow pass between the hills.
It was a dreary time, and the boys
felt, as they hail never felt before, how
tiresome tho island was in heavy
One morning, while the storm still
raged, Charley came running over to
Jack's house all breathless and excited.
"Joe's awful sick!" ho cried, as soon
as he could catch his breath. " The
doctor's come, and they don't think he' 11
ever get well."
Good Mrs. Hasbrouck immediately
went over to oiler her neighborly serv
ices, and soon returned for something
needful. Jack, eagerly watching for
her, inquired with an anxious heart
what the trouble was.
"Poor Joo is very sick, indeed. Ho
was taken last night with a fever, and
this morning is delirious."
' May I go over to see himP"
" No, indeed! You'd only be In the
way, and might catch the fever."
.tack slunk away, and went aimlessly
out into the yard. At Charley's lirst
words, all the anger had gone out of
his heart, and a kind of awful dread
had taken its place. What if Joo
should die! What if that miserable
sceno in the woods should bo his last
view of the boy he liked so well! Jack
would have given anything in the
world, including his bout and his six
bladed jack-knife, if ho could only gee
Joe for just one little minute, and
"make up" before ho died.
But day followed day in anxious sus
pense. It was hard to get the doctor
over to the island; for it was a good
two-mile row to the village, anil the
weather was so rough that it was a
task for two stout men to pull the
heavy boat across. And when he came,
he could do littlo but look nt the hot
face oi tho tossing boy, and prescribe a
One night it was near the crisis of
the disease a sad accident happened.
Tho doctor had been there during the
day, and left a medicine which he said
must be given at intervals during the
night. Just after tho evening had set
in with pitchy darkness, rendered
doubly block by the heavy clouds
which hung below the sky. Mrs. Kies
ler went to the closet to pour out an
other dose of the medicine. Nervous
from anxiety and long watching, she
took the bottle with an unsteady hand.
Iu an instant It had slipped through
hor Angel's, and was dashed into a
thousand pieces on the floor. Here
was a sad case, indeed! All of poor
Joe's medicine gone, and no possible
way of getting any more that night.
The storm was momentarily increasing
in violence, and the anxious mother
well knew that no one wonld dare to
venture across the river in so furious a
tempest. The accident was soon known
in all the homes, and many were the
words of sympathy uttered. But even
the hardy boatman, accustomed to
rough weather, shook his head when
the possibility of getting to the village
was spoken of.
" 'Taiu't no use talkln'," he said.
"Ye couldn't gitacrost more'n nuthin'
at all. It 'ud lie jes' temptin' Provi
dence ter try it."
K.very one felt the force of old Bax
ter's words, for none doubted his cour
age or his skill as a boatman.
But to oiio listener the sad Intelll-
f;nneo of the mishap anil the luipossibil
ly of remedying it brought a hope and
a desire which noon resolved themselves
"What was the name of the medi
cine, mother!''' said J k quietly.
Mis. llashrutick told him. No one

slipped out of the door with cap and
overcoat, and sped into tho darkness.
It whs, Indeed, a fearful night. Tl.n
storm had risen u a gale. The chill
November rain poured down In tor
rents, ard the furious wind whistled
and howled amid the leafless branches
of tho trees. Through tho darkness
Jack could hear the roar of the waves
that were dashing heavily against the
rocks, and as ho neareu the dock he
could dimly see the glimmer of their
With much ditllculty he unfastened
the painter of his stanch little bmt,
and with a few sharp strokes of the oars
was out on the boiling river!
It was a serious task ho had before
him. Already he was wet to the skin
by the driving rain, and every moment
showers of salt spray dashed over him.
Tho cold wind benumlicd his bare
hands, tough as they wore, so that he
could scarcely hold the oars. Again
and again the waves knocked the oars
from the rowlocks, and threatened to
ongiilf him beneath their dreadful
weight. But Jack did not feel a bit
afraid. Perhaps ho did not realize the
full extent of the danger he was in.
Possibly ho thought 1 hope ho did
that Ood was on tho river as well as on
tho land, and that Ho who stilled the
waves on Galilee could care for the boy
who was trying, with a stout heart and
determined will, to do a noble deed for
friendship's sake. At any rate ho did
not falter in his purpose, but struggled
manfully on until, by the sound of the
breakers, he knew he was near the oth
er side. Fortunately, he struck the
shore within a little cove, sheltered by
high rocks, and was able to land with
out much trouble.
Tho walk to tho village, a milo and a
half, was along a railway track; a part
of it across a long bridge, on which only
a singlo plank was laidfor foot-passengers.
But walking was pleasant after
the tremendous labor of rowing, and
Jack trudged briskly forward, cheered
by tho lights of the distant village, and
an occasional gleam from the flagmen's
boxes along the road. In due time tho
village was reached, tho medicine pro
cured, and Jack started on his return
trip with a light and eager heart.
But wolking down tho road with the
wind, and up against the wind, were
two quite different things. Often Jack
was brought to a complete standstill,,
and his breath fairly blown away, by
the fury of the gale. And on the long
bridgo he was several times obliged to
cling to the plank with his hands to
save himself from being blown into tho
water. At length, however, he got
safely back to his boat, and after stop
ping a few moments to rest, launched
out ngain upon tho tossing waves.
But all this while, what was happen
ing on the island? For a time. Jack's
absence was not noticed. But when
the family were assembled for evening
prayer, inquiry began to be made for
him. No one knew where he was, of
course, and the exercise went on with
out him. Then nine o'clock came, and
Mrs. Hasbrouck, growing somewhat
worried, went to look for his coat and
cap. Both were gone! Then there
was a sudden muster of the family
forces. The neighbors were inquired
of, but thev knew nothing of him.
wnore couiu tno Doy oer ine men
went about calling through the dark
ness, but no Jack responded to their
shouts. They searched in every nook
and cornor where he could be supposed
to bo, but all in vain.
All at once, with a mother's instinct.
Mrs. Hasbrouck recalled Jack's inquiry
about tho medicine. Could it beP
yes, that must be it! With lantern in
hand, waiting for no one, she ran to the
dock. Jack s boat was gono! The
mystery was solved; but the poor moth
er's heart sank within her as she looked
out on the stormy river, and remem
beied what the old boatman had said.
But not a moment was to be lost.
She hastened back to the house, and in
a trice every window towards tho river
was lighted up, and a large reflecting
light was carried to the rock above tho
landing. At least there should be noth
ing omitted that could help the poor lad
find his way home, if the hungry waves
had spared him.
Just as Jack struck out into the river
he glanced behind him and saw the
faint glimmer of the lights through tho
pelting rain. It put new life into his
sturdy arms, and the rushing waves
and furious wind did not seem half so
threatening as before. He know they
were watching and praying for hiin,
and ho smiled to think how glad they
would all be when he landed with the
Srecious medicine that was to save poor
oo's life. But O how long it took to
row across! Wind and tide were
against him now. Every pull of the
oars scorned to require tlie utmost
strength he could put into it, und after
his previous exertions, the labor rapid
ly wore upon his energies, until tho
poor lad's courage began to fail, and
the terrible fear came rushing into his
mind that he might not be able to reach
home after all. How cold it was! How
tired he felt, and how numb his hands
wero growing! The pleasant lights
seemed farther off than when he saw
them first. He was surely drifting
away, and would soon bo swallowed
up, with tho life-giving medicine, by
the surging, pitiless river. Gradually,
his strokes became less and less vigor
ous. His weary urms refused to do their
office. His head swam, and before he
could recover himself, an oar had slipped
from his weakened grasp.
But hark! what is thutP A shout close
by, and the sound of oars! Summon
ing up all his energies. Jack shouted in
reply. There was an answer, and he
called again. A few moments of anx
ious suspense, and the great oak boat
runs alongside Jack's almost sinking
craft, while old Baxter's stout hands
seize tho exhausted boy and drag him
safely aboard! The bravo old man,
moved by the mother's agony, had ven
tured out at the risk of nis own life in
tho wild hope or encountering Jack
eithor on the river or on the further
shore; and Providence had led him to
the fultillment of his hope just in the
nick of time. It was a hard row back.
But Baxter was a mighty oarsmen, and
his happy heart gave added power to
his strong arms, bo that iu no longtime
the dock was reached in safety.
And wasn't it a glad meeting when
Jack was lifted from the boat and
folded in his mother's arms? He could
just whisper, "The medicine in my
inside pocket!" and fainted dead away.
They earried him quickly to the
house, and the medicine wag taken to
Mrs. Kiesler. In the morning, after a
sound night's rest. Jack awoke, as
healthy hoys do, as well as ever; and

Hero is a recipe for crullers old
enough to be good. It was taken from
a manuscript receipt-book written in
New York in 17B8: Take of buttermilk
one-half of a cup and two cupfuls of
Muscovado, a piece of sweet butter as
large as a walnut, a teaspoonful of salt
and a tablespoonful of ground coss
(cinnamon P) just as much wheaten
flour as will make a running dough; roll
it even, not above a pie thickness; cut
in strips, which tie over in lover s
knots; have a skillet with sweet home
made hog's fat, and when the fat is
hissing hot fry your crullers. A house
keeper who has tried this venerable
recipe writes to the New York Timet
that she did so with some hesitation, as
there is no saleratus in it, but w as sur
prised to tind it made a light cruller.
Give your plants fresh air on cheer
ful, sunny days; they need it. Cleanli
ness is as necessary to their health as
that of animals; and it is, therefore,
necessary to secure them from dust as
much as possible, and also to cleanse
the plants frequently bv syringing or
washing. Even here a little caution is
necessary, for while the smooth-leaved
plants nro benelited, not only by show
ering, but even by washing the leaves
with a cloth or sponge, the rough-leaved
plants, like tho Begonia Rex, do not
like to have the surface of their leaves
frequently moistened. It would there
fore, be well to remove such plants be
fore syringing. Take every precaution,
however, to prevent the accumulation
of dust upon the plants. Exchange.
The small things which need atten
tion in early spring aro numerous and
pressing, and if they are not done now

The wagons and carts need painting or
repairing, the plows to bo overhauled,

lected or procured, harness to bo re
paired anil cleaned, tho thrashing ma
chine and horse-power to be cleaned
and oiled in short, all tools for spring
and summer work should be looked at
and put in order. If you have not been
in the habit of keeping accounts, tho
present is a good time to get an account-book
and begin. It requires very
littlo knowlodge of book-keeping to do
this, so that you can understand it

satisfactory at tho end of the year to

Scientific Farming Practical.
Mr. Buckmaster, before a well at
tended meeting of farmers, held at Tad
ley, in England, the other day, to con
sider a scheme for tcaohing the science
of farming, said that there was no opin
ion more deeply ingrained in the mind
of the English farmer than the belief
that there was antagonism between
science and practice. Some even went
so far as to say that the two are in
compatible. Tlie farmer who drains
his land or tries a new manure, or a
new machine, or a new crop, calls him
self a practical man; he despises all ex
periment, and laughs at the touching
of scientific men. He is not conscious
that when he is thinking over new
plans and adopting new methods of
cultivation he may bo illustrating in his
daily work a series of chemical and
physiological experiments of extreme
complexity and importance. Men of
tlie highest order of intellect, and
whose researches were the most origi
nal, have been practical men. Prac
tice and theory are but phases of the
same form of thought. Tho practical
farmer, if he ever permits his mind to rise
above the traditions and empirical
rules of his forefathers, and asks,
" Could not that have boon done in a
better and more perfect way; would
not this be an improvement?" becomes
a theorist, and when ho tries to realize
these conceptions becomes a practical
man. Theory and practice are insepa
rable in every art, however much men
may seek to disunite them. The most
practical man is often the most theo
retical. Every operation is with him a
theory. Ho recognizes no change; he
will admit of no trial or experiment,
because that would be an acknowledg
ment of science. Every science is
built up of principles, and these princi
ples carried into work are called prac
tice. There is tlie scienoe of astrono
my and the art of navigation; the sci
ence of geometry and the art of land
measuring; tlie science of mechanics
and the art of making machinery; the
science of chemistry and the art of ag
riculture. Almost eVery science is the
basis of a cognate art. The most ob
vious and natural way of arriving at a
real knowledge of the art of agricult
ure would be to know something of
those principles on which the art is
based, art being nothing more than the
application of principles previously ac
quired. A farmer who is able to unite
a perfect mastery of principles with a
knowledge of practical details is an ed
ucated and scientific farmer. It might
reasonably be inferred that the short
est and easiest method of learning any
industrial art, and the surest guide to
now discoveries in tlie art, would be a
knowledge of those fundamental prin
ciples upon which tho art was based.
No amount of practical skill and expe
rience could ever replace the want of
scientilic knowledge In farming. Hcictf
In the Middle Ages the burial serv
ice was read over a man when he be
came a leper, and he was from that time
separated from tlie rest of mankind, ex
cept others like himself.
During the year J H.1.1 the late A. T.
Stewnrt invited l-wls J'sppsn, a piit
ner In the tirmof Arthnrlappan Co.,
to come to his store, then situated on
Broadway opW)ite the City Hall, to
examine his stork, book and papers,
and report the fact of his condition to
his firm and to Henry Sheldon, a
Krniieh Importer, ami several others,
from whom Mr. Stewart desired con
siderable credit. After a careful exam
ination, Mr. Tappan reported Mr. Stew
art to be "fairly worth jiW.iM) over
und above all hls'liabililies." This gave
conlidenee to all parties, and thence
afterward he had all tho credit he
wanted. Rome vears after this, Mr.
Stewart told Mr. 1'ajiimn that the credit
given as the result of that examination
pave him a new start in business, and
was of immense advantage to him.
The Ionisville DcmncnU says that
as a body politic each State should cut
but little figure. Its prosperity and
strength should not be seen in the
number and mngiiilieenee of its public
buildings, such as State-houses. Poor
houses, Correction-houses, Court
houses, Jails, Penitentiaries, etc.
these may be evidences of the pros
perity of "success," but thev are not
evidences of a prosperous, highly civ
ilized, self-governing commonwealth.
On the contrary, they are monuments
of social rottenness and internal disor
ders. So far from being objects of
pride, thev should be considered expen
sive and sfiameful finger-boards of a low
order of civilization.
Tho hound is a most Interesting
dog. How solemn and long-visaged he
is how peaceful and well-disposed!
He is tho Quaker among dogs. All the
viciousness and currishness seem to
have been weeded out of him; he sel
dom quarrels, or lights, or plays like
other dogs. Two strange hounds, meet
ing for tlie first time, behave as civilly
toward each other as two men. I know
a hound that has an ancient, wrinkled,
human, far-awav look that reminds one
of the bust of Homer among the Elgin
