-What's yonr boy Ike doin daown t'
Boston. Jerome?" asked the Hill.hile port
master one stormy night,' while he and
Jerome Sargent waited for the coach to
arrive. Mr. Sargent had returned from a
visit to Boston the day before, und ii was
vaguely reported in the village that "he'd
had firt at doin's daown b'low with Ike."
"Isaac, replied Mr. Sargent in a tone
of ill concealed pride, "is right in th"
midst o' things, I ken jest tell ye! M'
wife, she's alius held to it that Isaac lied
got t' be some kind of a lit'rary filler
when he'd got his grow th, an I declare
for't, it does appear 's ef he was in a
pooty fa'r way t' kerry aout his ma's
d'sires. He's jest right in I amongst a
mess o th' lit'rary folks th' hull Murin
time; sees Vm real informal day ir. a i
"Do tell'." gasped the postmaster, with
an expression of the greatest and most
flattering amazement on his sharp fea
"Yes, sir," said Mr. Sargent, seeing
that he had made a decided impression
on his listener. 'I was raound with
Isaac quite a little spell one morom, but
lawzee, I couldn't stand no sech fluster
in hurrvin times as he hes right along!
'Twould" kill me right off, or anyways 1
shouldn't never be fit for any t Inn agin
after a week o' sech work! But Isaac
ta-oa it an seems t' feel real easy an on-
concerned 'baont gettin raound. There's
jne thing his ma an I would like t hev
changed though, that's th' short rations
o' time thev give him t git irom one
place t' another an back agin.

surveving the effect meditatively as he
talked. -Isaac's a likely boy at learinn.

Well, i::i' w. v.-h.:-t is Ike. loin precise

pause, during whirls lie had waited pa
tientlv fur Mr. Sarger.t to give some

Why, I ain't cal'lati.i f teil ye jest

tion." remarked the fattier prudently.
"It w"d strike ye kind o queer, same as
it did me fust t iT. til! Isaac explained
"i-,-Yiit it? I ain't deemed it hardly wise
t' tell his ma even jest yet. for she's kind
o notional, an tamt a jHxny name uo

it's customary, an don't mean what ye

Right in with em all, Isaac is.

much by him?" inquired the postmaster
iij a tone of great respect.
"Th' pnntm folks set a neap ny mm,
replied Mr. Sargent. "It's 'Isaac here
an 'Isaac' there all th' time with them.
Isaac savs th' writin men don't seem t
take much to him. but I told him that ef
he was a goexl boy an did his work well
thev"d git so the v'd feel real friendly to
him an be glad t' see him whenever ho
