DwcwtDagld Spouts was taking bit after-dlnnnei smoke. Perhaps the long **y pipe looked a hfttle Incongruous with the handsomely furnUed room, and tHe ldlDSOlf was incongruity— a little common looking man, not very well dressed, with a Rob Roy bonnet on his head, and knit ted. gray, worsted stockings on his slip pered feet. ,,j ; ; Certainly a very wide contract to the handsome, stylish looking wto Interrupted his reverie and noisy— "Good evening uncle. Can 1 talk awhile with you? "That depends, Robin, on what you're gaun to talk about. I'm in no mood for clishnraa-clavera. " »4 want to talk about business, uncla." "Hump!" I "You know, uncle, that Aleck Lang and I have been long friend«." "I have heard soyl'don't know It." Well, wo har«. To-day Aleck came n into the carpet lmarnock: He tl-.T . young fellow by avery frank I to fell me that he is weaving business intends to bay Thomas Blackie out." "Hech! He'll need some bawbees for I that. "ffi father will help, and he asked me: to join him. What do you think about I "How long bave yon bem wi' Hastle?' "Five yeara." "And how much have you saved?" "Well, to tell the truth, uncle; nothing at all. What with Jesse marrying last year and Rosa this, and the present« I bad to give, and other expenses, my savings all went away." '»Humph!" "I thought perhaps tbat as the busi ness was such an old, sure one, and as both the Langs would be Interested in it, you would lend me two thousand pounds for such a wonderful good chance!" The old man removed his pipe, and looking Robin in the face, said: »•/ have made it a rule never to lend money to young men'.'' "A very uitkiud rule when it touches me, uncle. You were never unkind to me before." "I am no unkind to you now either Robin.' "Only two thousand, uncle! And such a chance!" "Guide heavens, Jierr the lad! 'Only two thousand!' Did you ever earn twa thousand pounds? Did ye ever save twa thousaud pounds? When ye have, Robin come to me an' i'll talk wi' ye aboot lend ing ye sum." "liut, uucle, the thing is not a new venture; itis sore to pay.'' "It is gann to hae new matters: an' men at sixty arma sae sure aboot things "pay ing' as lads of five-an'-twenty are." , So tbe young man went away much disappointed and not a little angry; but other friends looked more favorably on the plan. The two thousand pounds were borrowed, and Robert Rae and Aleck Lang bought ontthe old-established carpet weaving house of Thomas Blackie. The Hirst year the concern, in spite of falling prices, did very well. Robert's share of tbe profits not only gave him a good living, but paid his interest, and allowed him to lay by nearly £100 towards clearing off his borrowed capital; and the next year things were still brighter. In the fourth year of the enterprise Robert Rae called again on his uncle. He was sitting smoking in just the same dress and attitude. "Good evening, Uncle David." "Good evening, Robin. How's buai nessP" •'First rate. I don't come to-night about business." "Hech! What for then?" "I'm going to be married. I want to tell you about it." "That's a mair kittle risk than Blackie'* business, Robin." "I think not uncle." "What's the lassie?" "Jessie Lorimer." "The ministers daughter?" "Yes." "What toucher has sh*.'' "Just her beauty ana her noble na ture: she is «f good family too, and has had the best of educations. Why, un cle, sho can do most any thing—paints, draws, plays the harp, sings like an angel, ana—" "I'm feared she'll be a kind o' ma trimoniaWuxury, Robin. But she's a bonnie bit lassie ; I hae seen her; yet, I doubt if she's fit for a puir man's wife." "You'll come to the wcddiDg, un cle! "Surely, surely. It whs a very grand wedding, and Uncle Speers made quite a sensation by giving the bride a check for £500. Indeed, Jessie seemed to have quite captivated the old bachelor, and he soon liegen to spend a great many of bis evening in her pretty brine. Three years passed hsppidly away. In Robert's home there had been some pleasant changes; and Uucle Speers danced a pretty baby Jessie occasion ally on his knee, or looked admiringly and wonderingly ut his own wee namesake in bis cradle. Down at the milt things were spparenlly equally prosperous—all the looms were at work aud the very welfare of Kilmarnock community was sensibly connec ted with the business of "Lang& Uae's Csrdet Mill." But u great deal of of this success vas «nlv apparent, for it hung upon chances entirely beyond tbe control the young partners in it. They had been compelled to borrow largely,and h ad big interest accounts to meet, and a great deal of their paper being from houses unknown to local bankers, had to be cashed at very heavy discounts. All these things were much against them, yet so great was their industry and energy that they might have turned them all into "happy circum stances," and won iu spite of the odds against them, if yams had not sud denly lakeu a tremendous and quite unloeiked for fall This of course was followed by n number of failures, as a »oat of which they suffered. Not ell tbelr efforts could now gelber together their numerous Hues ot enterprise, end they /ound U éqtlklly Impossible to cnrttli them, end so, after a few •Moths of desperate, euzious struggle, tbegrm of ,'LeogA; Ree, Carpet weav ers," appeared in the list of "Séques trations.'' Oid David Speers, with that subtle instinct indigenous to capitalists, bad long foreseen and resolutely refuted to meddle In the mstler. A coolness bad, therefore, gradually grown up between uncle and nephew, and when the end came David was not among those who offered Robert and Aleck advice and advice and sympathy. The S oung me* behaved well; they surren ered everything, even to thoif home plenishing; but the Scotch creditors ere a pitilessly just dass; and they did not fail to stigmatize as dishonorable and unbusinesslike the' speculative and risky nature of the trade done by tba broken dawn firm. . > Aleak .at once sailed for Sidney, where ha had a brather, and Robert took bis wife and children to the manse, while be endeavored to find à situation. But week aftor weak passed, another winter was approaching, and nothing had been done. Once again David Speerawas smoking his after dinner pips and was interrupted. This time it was ^is pretty nieca Jessie. His face softened wonderfully when ho met her large, tearful eyes, and lay ing down his pipe hurriedly, he went to meet her. The courtesy was a very great one, and it gave Jessie hope and courage. "Ob, uncle," the said, we have sore need of you!" "My pulr little woman! Sit down and t«H Davie what he can do tor you." Jessie's tale was soon told—her tears told it best—"Robert's heart had quite failed him; they were almost penni less, and they had worn their welcome out at the mans." ; I "Then you'll come here, my dawiie, you and Robert, and Jessie and wee Davie; an' we'll see what your man is St for- If he canna find his feet wi' a wife like you, I'm no sorry for him." So the next day the family moved, with iheir small belengings.to David's grand house, very mucb to the annoy ance of Mistress Janet, David's house keeper. This lady indeed soon made things so unpleasant that it was evi dent to all parties there could be no delay in a decision, and Robert,almost in desperation, resolved on trying his fortune in the New World. David, pressed by his housekeeper's grumbling, and by his affection for ilia nephew, knew only of one other way—he could advance Robert money for a new effort; "but it would be the ruin of the lad," he said, thoughtfully; "I'm doubling if he's learnt his lessoa yet; he must e'en go to school again." Bo be praised Robert's suggestion and offered to pay the whole family, and start life with. Rather grumblingly the offer was accepted, and in a few days they were on the ocean not one of them aware of the real interest and affection whioh followed them—"but they'll write to me," said David to himself, "they' a write, for tbey ken I bae plenty »' siller." Once on a new track, all Ilobert's energy returned. He sought informa tion from all be met, and when tbey arrived in New York, he had a very clear idea of the directon he ought to take. Provided with a letter which a fellow passenger had given him to the S roprietors of tba Mattatook Carpet [ills, he found bis way there and readily obtained work. A part of his £100 wss used in furnishing a little cottage, and Robert enjoyed a degree of peace and comfort to wbieh he bad long been a stranger. The next spring a lucky event gave him a special prominence. A large mill in the neighborhood imported some machinery for weaving a pecu liar kind of rug, and no one could be found in the locality able to make it run Bmnolbly. Robert beard of the dilemma and offered bis help. The loom was familiar to him; his success easy. He had found his place, and be knew it; day by day lie made bis skill and energy felt. He rose to be over seer—business manager—partner. Still he varied very little the quiet simplicity of his home. Jessie and be bad fouad out how little they really needed for happiness, and so, year by year, whatever they saved was inves ted in real estate. The land grew in value while they slept and worked at otner things, and ten years after Rob ert's first investment be found himself, by the simple growth of the village, a very rich man. Just about Ibis time Uncle David sent them a very urgent request to come and see him, and as he offered to pay ail expenses it was accepted. The old man was now nearing eighty, yet he was wonderfully hale and bright, and met them at the steamer, apparently little older for the ten yeara tbat bad elapsed since he bid them "good-by" on the very same spot, ife liked Robert's way at tbe first glance; "be has tbe look o' a man wi' siller, an' be bears himself' well. I wager he's a full purse in his pouch." Another thing made a still more favorable impression on David; R > bert was not anxious to speak on busi ness. Indeed, David bad at last to ask bluntly: "Weel, Robin, what kind o'kintrais you!" "It is a great country,uucle!" "You'll liae doue weel, I suppose!" "Ye,y well." A long pause. "You'd no be needing ony help rn.tr ? I have money lying idle." "Thank you Uncle D ivid ; but I hare fifty thousand dcllars lying idle myself, I thought Bomeof investing it here, if I can find just I he machinery I want." "You'regauan to manufacturing ugaiu?' •' Yes ; I know all the inns and outs of « passage of tbe fiv»Jiiu £100 to 'se ths trade—there is a our town. Yes, I am it." good opening in thinking about You'll no be wanting a partner, eh?" "If I can^peMha right kind." "You uncle!" "Well, yes laddie; an' you needna scorn at me. I'll put a hundred thous and to your fifty, an' ire'll ea'the firm Rae & Spheers." ''You could not leave Soot land.ancle.'' Was I thinking o' sic a daft thing TU trust my interest i' your hands. I'll hssjrjJ full my full rights, mind; an' you shall hae a fair allowance for doing my mark, .as well ae you ain. We'll put every thing on paper, and Use hold you striotly to the bargain '' The proposal, made half in banter, fi. naUy assumed a very real shape, and it was agreed that when Robert returned to Amène» he should start a new manu facturing firm under very different SUS P'S«» to hie first venture But the past was otäy ones alluded to. •ndthenDavid introduced the subject "You'U be thinking, Robin veryUkely o the day When I weuldnalend you the twa tnousand pounds." "You wen quite right, unde» no man It; young men can't know these things; *hey belong to experience." ' r > < ••You had that lesson to loam then. Boom, an I thought you might as well learn it o' ither folks as o' me. One fool whiles teachers anither fool, an* both grow wise thegither. 8andy McClure lent ye that twa thousand, an'.hè Was nane the waur o' tbe lesson ye gave him. There would be fewer young fools if there were mair wise elders." So Robert's viait was a great strecss. and the old man shed the last tears he on ®"*h when he bid the children good-by. V Yo * i , 1 <»*•©* wee Davie for my sake, Robin" hesajd, tenderly, holding the lad proudly by tbe hand, "for when I'm no longer to the fore, yen'll let my name stand i' the firm, till he's ready to tak' my place; so then the hundred thous and will aye be in David Speers* name." And to day the house grows and pros pers, and is known far and wide aa the firm of "fitbert Rae A David Spears," though old David has long been gathered Î? l 18 ^hora in Kilmarnock- kirkyard. Robert's early failure has brought forth a late and splendid success and better than this, his kind-heartedness has al most become a local proverb. "I make it a rule never to lend money to young men, but if you want to go West or South I'll buy you a ticket, and give you fifty dollars. If the right stuff is in you, that is enough—if not, it is plenty to make ducks and drakes of." But tatnehow very few young men that Robert Rae helps to make "duoks and drakes" of his nTty dollars. In many and many , case it has been an ample foundation far a good life and a good for tune. Young men earn your ourn capital ! "Would ROLLING ACROSS TUE OCEAN. A PLAN FOR PBOPULSATION WITHOUT WIND OB STEAM. Mr. Isaac Chomel. of 501 Fulton street, Brooklyn, hag invented a plan by which he expects to propel a eh ip by her own rolling motion solely, thus doing away with any other motive power. Mr. Chomel is the inventor of the swinging berth, by means of which sea-sickness may be alleviated, and tho application of this principle inspired him with the idea of utilizing it in the production of pow er. He has been working towards the development of this idea for the past three years, and has at last succeeded perfecting a working model, 4 feet 17 in. beam, and 16 inohes deep. He claims that in his model he has reached a shape which will secure the maximum with the minimum of pitching motion, and from the rolling motion hg derives his power, la this model he has.constructed,at either end, is a compartment air and water tight. In the centre of the hull is a wa ter-tight compartment about eighteen iuches in length. In this suspended a movable platK>rm, hung so as to yeild either to t hi pitching or the rolling mo tion of the vessel. (This, at|its bottom, gears directly upon the propeller shaft, so that there is the least possible loss of power. As this platform in inclined to an angle of thirty degress, the propeller makes eight revolutions, continuing to revolve in the same direction when the platform is tilted the other way. Mr. Chomel says that a ship at sea rolls about teu times per minute, and that he will thus secure in a brisk sea eighty olutions per minute. His intention use this power for the transportation of live cattle to Europe. Ina ship 300 feet long he can construct a platform or stable capable of containing about two hundred head of cattle. Placed upon this plat form the motion of the ship will not affect them at all, since this will at all times be horizontal, and he claims that he will be able to land his cattle in as good, or better, condition than when they were shipped, and to car ry them over for absolutely no expense except their food and care and a very moderate charge for freight. Mr. Chomel has every confidence in the success of his invention, and says that if he can procure the means to build a craft fifteen feet long, he will cross the ocean in her. As soon as the weather becomes milder Mr. Chomel will teat his present model in the waters of tho bay, and if it works there satisfactorily he has been assured that the means shall be forthcoming to try it on a larger scale. In smooth water, when there is no rolling motion, Mr. Chomel proposes to utilize his freight of cattle, marching them from side to side and thus obtaining his power by moving the platform instead of the ship. Without iu rev is to expressing any opinion as to the merit of thi« invention, it may be said that it is well worth an inspection by experts iu motive power. Mr. Chomel has also invented a mag netic log for determining the speed of vesHel«. This consists or a small propel lor wheel fixed at the lower part of the stern, an endless band passing around the «haft of this and a roller at the knight heads. On one part of this hand is a small piece of iron, which as it passes the upper roller is attracted hv a maguet rings a bell. There will be so many turns of the propuilor for each magnetic revolution, and a certain distance passed over by the vessel t > produce this num ber of revolution*; strike of the bell w tauce.— N. Y.
