, BY HUGH WILSON. Twelve Pages. Wednesday, Sept. 26, 1894. The Making of a Gentleman. "Robert Gilmore, one demerit, for talking without permission," said Mr. Gell, very loud, indeed, from the desk. Poor Rob! It was rather hard on him, for it was more Aleck's fault than his. Aleck had begun the whispering, and on such an interesting subject that Rob, instead of bluffing him off, as he knew be ought to do, llsteued, and answered, and got into trouble. But Aleck was not caught. "I'm going to fix that little snob after school," was what Aleck had whispered to Rob. "What snob?''asked Rob, with quick curiosity ; he didn't know what a snob was; I don't think Aleck knew very well himself. "Why, that dandy, Walter Lindsay. ' with tassels on his boots. Tassels," continued Aleck in deep disgust; "what sort of a boy would wear tas* sels on his boots?" Rob looked across at the boy with the offending tassels; he "was yawning over his spelling-book, kicking bis heels together, twisting a stray lock of hair, and altogether behaving very much like other small boys. ' What are you going to do to him" . asked Rob, anxiously. "I'm going to follow on behind till we get to that place right in front ol Dunlap's grocery, where the two gutters meet?do you remember?" "Suppose he don't go home that way, suppose " But Mi. Gell had been growing conscious for the last minute and a half of whispering in the air, and, without raising his head, he rolled those deep-set eyes around till he caught Rob in the midst of his "supposes," and clapped him down on the "black book," as the school called it. This demerit was particulary hard to stand, because it meant that he would have to stay in a half hour after sehool, cramming dictionary, and this meant that he would miss the excitement of seeing Aleck "fix" Walter for being a snob and wearing tassels. ? * - -i *.n? ?i a J5UC so ll naa iauen uui, huu xwu, : like most small boys, made the best oi it, learned as few words as possible, teased a big fly he had caught, munched a withered apple he had found in hie desk, and presently got to the end oi his half hour, and tore away home. "Hello! Aleck; wait for me," he shouted the next morning ou his waj to school, as he caught sight of hie v comrade's old brown cap a square ahead. Bob had been in a surprising hurry to get away from buckwheats and maple syrup that morning?his appetite being keen for what Aleck Vo>< toil hla ' flTinor t.hft unnh." And, as good luck would have it, here was the hero of the engagement himself, only a square away. "Well, did you do it? Did you fix him!" panted Bob, pulling up alongside. < "Do what?" said Aleck, rather &S . gruffly. "You know about Walter Lindsay ; what did you do to him ?" "Nothing," anwsered Aleck briefly. Rob flalt very fiat, but Aleck was cross, and would give him no satisfaction. Later in the day, under the thawing . influence of Bob's lunch basket, > Aleck's tongue was ioosea. "I say, Rob." he began suddenly, and with conndental disregard of good English, "that there boy has got the making of a gentleman in him," But Rob had forgotten. "What boy?" he asked. "Oh, pnddin' head, I mean Walter Lindsay ! Yesterday I was sneaking along behind him, like I said, and just before we got to Dunlap's grocery who should be out in the middle of the street but Mrs. Dorsey's little idiot boy, Mac! There he was, wagons driving this way and that way, men shouting at him to get out of the way, and Mac not paying any attention but just moving out there like a calf. There were a lot of us fellows, and maybe some of us would have seen what to do presently, but just as Bachman's big dray came tearing along, out springs Walter Lindsay, right though all that nasty water I was thinking aKnuf nnoKinop him int/l. most Ut) 10 his knees, too, and seizes Mac around tlio waist "The little idiot struggled and fought him, and knocked off his cap, but Walter showed pluck, I tell you, and wa< ded back with him, and actually coaxed him along home. "'You've got your feet awfully wet and dirty,' says I. "Oh, never mind!' says he, 'they'll dry off all right,' and he took no more account of those fine tassels than if he didn't have' em." "And what did you do?" asked Rob, with the instinct of a true listener,feeling that the story was- not done. "I ? Oh, I just waded in and got his cap for him!" answered Aleck, shamefacedly ; "but I tell you what, Bob, that fellow can wear tassels hung round him like a table cover if he pleases, he's got tbe making of a gentleman, like I told you."?Exchange. "Kiss Her and Tell Her Sc." Integrity of character, a right sense of honor, manliness and respect for what. In nuro anrt cnnH arft all adiunntfl to the perfect happiness of married life, writes Mary J. Holmes in answer to the question. "What Constitutes a Good Husband?" in the July Ladies Homes Journal. But most natures crave more than these, and what they crave is bo easy to give that I wonder it is ever withheld. Said a woman of her husband who, when living, stood high with his fellow-men, and surrounded her with every luxury; "I loved him most for his kind thoughtfulsess and delicate attentions which made me feel that I was as dear to him after years of marriage as on the first day lis called me wife." And this, I think, is the secret of some women's happiness. It is not enough for a man to make a woman his wife, and after a few weeks or months of attention ignore her with a feeling that because he has chosen her to bear bis name she must be forever satisfied with no futher demonstrations, of his love. Women like demonstrations, and there is a world ol Sad advice in the two lines of an old llad I lately read: "If yoar wife Is dearer to you than your life, v ' Kiss her and tell her so." Hating war as I do from my very heart, and convinced as I am of the inconsistency of it with real ChrisianIty, and looking on the profession ol arms as irreconcible with the princi pies of the gospel, I should mourn greatly if one of my boys chose sc cruel a line of life. ~ ' Legh Richmond. iti . - . * fa* ' Uvt.
