One day Ben and bis father were out in the field, hard at work In the hot sun, when the boy said: "Father.I want to talk with you about garden truck." "Well?" "You don't get a pood price for it?" "A mighty poor price, Ben." 4'And you can't do better?" "Xo; I've tried all the commission dealers, and none of them pay better than Robbins." "So it hardly pays for you to go to New York?" "No, it don't, for a fact." ' "Then why not let me g-o?" "That wouldn't be a bad idea," said the farmer, thoughtfully. "You're getting- old enough to drive to New York now, and you ought to do that job just as well as I could. At the same time, if I let you go and stay at home myself, I can do a good deal more work about the farm. I'll think it over." That was all Mr. Baldwin said at the time; but that night, after supper, he suddenly announced: "Ben, I think I'll let you cart the produce to New York. But you must be careful when driving through the streets of the city." Ben promised, and then asked: "Don't you think, dad, that it would be possible to get more money than Robbins pays you?" "No, I tell you; I've tried the whole lot of them." "Perhaps I could get more money." "But you can't." "If I do, will you let me have all I get over Bobbins' price?" "Yes; provided you bring home cash each night. I've got to have ready money, for I'll have some help to pay off this summer." Ben went to bed that night and dreamed that ha had grown so rich that the Goulds had taken him into partnership. In the morning he startled both of his parents by coming downstairs just after he was called the first time. He helped his father to load the farm wagon, received the farmer's last in structions, and drove off. "This is a heap better'n hard work," the boy reflected, as the horse jogged along the shady Westchester road. "May be a little more money in it, too," he added, with a thrill of antic ipatory delight. It was still early, according to the city ways of thinking, when he drove across One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street and kept on toward rorkville. But instead of keeping on toward the markets, he turned down EastNinety tixth street. and drew up before one of the apart ment houses. Going to the basement he pressed one of the row of buttons that stood near the dumb-waiter shaft. "Well?" demanded a woman, show ing her head at the shaft door. "Want any vegetables'?" "No." "But these are good better'n any you ever get." "That's what all you fellows say. We caia't get any vegetables in York ville that are not four or five days eld." 'I know it, ma'am. That's why I've come around. I brought these in fresh from the country this morning." "The same old story," mumbled tha woman, but she regarded attentively THE START TO PROSPKKITT. the frank honest face of the young produce merchant, and her tone showed that she was more than half inclined to believe him. Ben was quick to take advantage of the slight impression which he had produced. "Suppose you were going to buy some vegetables of me," he said, in sinuatingly, "what would it be?" "Peas and cucumbers, most likely." "If you'll wait just a minute, ma'am, I'll send you up some and you can see what they're like." In a minute he was back again. He hauled the samples up on the dumb waiter and the woman inspected the lot. "Why, they're really fresh," ahe ex claimed in surprise. "Yes'm: I told you they were." "The best I've seen this year." "Will you take them?" "How much?" Ben named the price. It was the regular retail figure for peas and cu cumbers. "Pull down the dumb waiter and you'll find the money on it," said the woman. This sale made, Ben tried the other people. As soon as they saw how (rood and fresh the vegetables were, they were even anxious to buy. Out of the ten families in the house, Ben made seven sales. Then he went into the next house. Here he was almost equally success uL By the time Ben Baldwin had can vassed Ninety-sixth, Ninety-fifth and Ninety-fourth streets, between Park and Third avenues, his big wagons load of produoe was gone. It was now a little past noon. With the air of a prosperous man who could afford such trifles, he stabled the horse and then went to the best res taurant he could find in that locality. A sumptuous meal followed. It was the best he had ever eaten. At least it seemed so to him, for, like the ma jority of boys, anything that he got in a restaurant was rather superior to home cooking. When he had finished eating he took a pencil and a piece of paper and began to do some figuring. The result that he obtained caused a gleam of delight to shine in his eyes. Then he drove slowly home to the farm. His father was waiting for him at the gate. "Sold all out, I see, Ben." "Yes, sir." J "Any trouble about it?" f "No, sir." .-" " "And the money?" " "Here it is." "Ben counted it out, and Mr. Bald win took possession of it. He knew the prices which Robbins paid, and found the account correct to a cent. After that Ben drove the market wagon regularly three times a week He visited the same district each time, and never failed to speedily sell out, for the customers that he had found on his first trip remained with him and even brought new customers. So it went on until the end of the summer. One day Ben woke up too ill to drive to market. There was nothing for it but for Mr. Baldwin to drive the wagon into the eity. When he arrived at the market where Bobbins had an office, that gen tleman came out. His ' first words were: "Well, Baldwin. Where have you been selling? Haven't seen you all the summer?" 'But you've seen my boy right along. I sent him." "If you did he never got here." "Are you sure of that?" "Positive." "Ben," said his father, when he re turned from New York, "where have you been selling the garden truck all summer. "Sold It on my own account, dad; sold it direct to families." "Then you must have got a little more money than you gave me." "Yes, sir; I did." "Then where is the rest of the money?" "In the bank. You know, dad, you said I could have all I got over Rob bins price." "So I did," Mr. Baldwin admitted, re flectively. "Well, what did you do with the money you kept for yourself?" "Banked it. You'll find the bank book in the top bureau drawer." Mr. Baldwin got the book and whis tled in intense astonishment. His son's deposits footed up to $216.43. Then the farmer took out his own memorandum book, and figured up that he had received from Ben during the whole summer 8194-73. "I gave you Bobbins' price each time, dad." "I know you did; I kept track of that right along." "If you're not satisfied, dad " "I'll have to be, for I gave you my word, and I'll stick to it But until today I thought all along that you were taking the stuff to Robbins. What put the scheme in your head to pick up a private route?" "Well, you know that woman that was visiting the Smiths? She lives in Yorkville, and I heard her say that it was impossible to get really good, fresh vegetables in that part of the city. By the time the garden truck got out of the commission merchant's hands up that way th stuff was pretty old and stale. So I thought I'd try and make money by supplying a long-felt want." "You're pretty sharp, Ben," said his father, thoughtfully. "When yon reach 21 I'm going to take you in as partner on the farm." "Thank you, dad, but I hope by that time, to be in business in the city." "Yes, I guess you are too smart to pass all your life on a farm," the farmer assented. Wales Winked. A picture at the illumination of Chester in honor of the prince of Wales' recent visit to that city was very comicaL His royal highness, owing to a slight puncture where one eye was painted on the canvas, was made to appear to be winking per petually at a small pork shop over the way. The crowd enjoyed the fun, and one of them hinted that the wink ing was part of the design. The in sinuation so hurt the worthy house keeper that he instantly turned, off the gas and left the prince in dark ness.
