Alabama succeeded in making an es

from Liverpool to Doston ut the taine
and fell in with the Alabama when about
half way aero s the Atlantic.
The Alaban a concealed her identity
until she got within half a mile of the
Memnon, when the Confederate flay was
hoisted to tJi.( peak and the astonished
crew of the Yankee bark began to realize
the true chan cter of the strange steam
er. The captain of the Memnon called
all hands aft, and in a very few words
told them that capture meant many long
months in n -prison, and thathe proposed
to escape if possible.
The crew wero no more anxious to
visit a Confederate rrison than the cap
tain, and whj8 1 he ave the order to square
away the yards the command was obeyed
in a very shoi t time.
It was blowing a gale from the- north

her topsails, but us fooh as the yards
were squared the men ran aloft, and sail

It was no very exacting amfation that
Robert Yonng's mother had cherished
all her life. She lived very quietly on
the western prairie farm to which she
and-her husband had gone: together
when they, were "Loth young. She did
not expect to be rich or even think about
it. She was content with the homely
round of her daily life. Sometimes her
husband used to say that if they : had
only happened to go here or there, whero
some if tho friends" of his youth had
found copper or silver, or struck oil, they
also might have been worth millions, but
the wife always answered:. "It waVt to
be, J ohn';it wa'n't to be. .And we've, done
pretty well, as things go, but I should 'a'
like one good black silk dress." .
This was tho only wish that Robert
Young had ever heard his mothfcr ex
presa, and he used to say to himself when
he was a bo3-:
"Bless the drr.r mother! She shall have
it the very first money I earn."
Robert's fa.':: r, too, planned in his
own mind tht: i-ama thing, but one year
the harvest turned out badly, and an
other tho children had diphtheria, and so
it was that the j.;ood black silk had never
It was a strange thing that the son of
John and Rachel Young should have
lieen an artist. Cut Robert began to
draw lieforo lie could write, and at last
he got hold of a box of colors through
the kindness of one of his Sunday school
teachers, and then he made pictures that
dazzled the eyes of his prairie neighbors.
As he grew older he got orders for
jxirtraits from proud parents who were
willing to give :Vi for a daughter's or a
son's likeness, mid he saved these small
sums until by the time ho was 18 he had
enough money to take him to Boston,
where he hoped to find a good teacher
and to do something really worth while.
Ilia struggle, in the citv was hard
enough to begin with. Everv snowstorm
was a friend to lain, for wherever he
shoveled off steps and sidewalk they
were sure to want him again, he did his
work so cheerfully and so well.
He paid for his lessons by taking care I

out that he had a special talent of his

where people could come, and it would

own studio to live like the youth who
used to shovel oil sidewalks. He did not
forget the good black silk dress or the
mother who was to wear it; ho only
At last came a spring when he had
been fairly prosjierous, and ho planned
to go homo for his mother's birthday in
August and to carry the dress with him,
but just then he received an invitation
that flattered him. His former teacher
was going to Ipswich for a summer of
sketching and asked Robert to go with
It seemed an opportunity too good to
be lost. So ho went to Ipswich, and the
summer flew by as if on wings, and Ro!
ert did not go homo in August; he only
wrote a letter.
It was October before he started for
the faroff prairie farm. Onco on his
way, he hurried forward by night and
day until he reached the little station
that was nearest to his home. He had
written when he should arrive, but ho
did not see his father waiting for him as
he had expected. Ho felt a momentary
sense of injury, but just then an old
neighbor came np.
"I s'poso you might as well ride home
long with mo," he said. .."I told 'em I'd
fetch ye, as long as yer pa couldn't."
"Waal, I sort er hate to tell ye, but
yer mother, she had a shock er palsy
yesterday, and yer father don't like ter
leave her jest jit."
There was a strange choking in Robert
Young's throat. The good black silk
dress was in his valise, but he had
brought it too late. Youth's Companion.
