"You must put Old Jim out cf the way before I come home !" That was the parting order of Mr. Bardwell, as he drove away to Poultney, on that dreary Xovembe r morning. The matter had been ponding fi r weeks, and, yet the words cast a sudden gloom over the household. Nobody ate much breakfast, and there was little talking. Old Jim had been the favorite family horse for years; but he was now too old to be of much use, and Farmes Bardwell could not afford to keep him through another win ter. Crops had been poor, and with Jasper in college, and Tina at boarding-school, it was all the farmer could do to make both ende meet. Mr. Bardwell was toe, merciful a man to sell tho horse, perhaps to let him be worked tc death in a few weeks or months. So he had come to the conclusion that the most humane way was to kill him outright, though it nearly broke his heart to think of it. It was not often that the farmer shirked his duty, but now he had arranged that a small bit of busi ness should keep him in Poultney all day, for he argued : . "The boys will do it easier than I could, and I shall be thankful to have it over with." John Bardwell knew that a command from his father was not to be trifled with, so after the chores were done he brought out his gun, saying, "If we must do this thing, we must I suppose, and the sooner the better. Come on, Joseph !" Joseph followed his brother to the barn without a word, but when he came to Old Jim's stall and heard his familiar whinny, it was all he could do to keep from crying, big twelve year-old boy that he was. The spot selected for the tragic scene was a henlock grove about two miles from the farmhouse, chosen because Mrs. Bardwell had said, "If I hear that gun go off, it will kill me !" So John and Joseph and Old Jim plodded across th? desolate fields toward this remott corner of the farm. The brothers were never boys ol many words, and now they wer( silent till they reached the edge of the little woodi There John, who had been stalk ing ahead, paused irressolute. H< took an apple from his pocket, aru let the horse eat it from his hand Then he buried his face for ? moment in the gray mane. '.You must do it, Joe-I can't,' he said at last, holding out th< gun. "Oh, John! No, no!" ploadet the younger boy, with a sol) in hi voice. "Well, somebody's got to, ant Isha'n't! So go ahead. You cai shoot as well as I. Only be quicl and sure about it; that's all." Joseph was naturally a tim it boy, never asserting his indepen dence, as John often did, am without another word of remon strance lie turned down the woo( path, his arm around Old Jim' neck. John threw himself on th ground and waited. It seemed long time, and then the soum came that he was dreading to hear the sharp report of his gun. With ; groan he covered his ears with his hands. Joseph said nothing when he returned, and John could not bring himself to ask any questions. They were half way home when the younger boy lagged behind. "What J s the matter?1 ' asked John. "I am so tired," said Joseph ; "and my head has ached all this morning." He looked really ill, and with out more ado John took him on his back, saying, "I am strong enough to carry two of you," and thus they reached home. That was the beginning of a long sickness for Joseph, and it was the last of March before he was able to be out-of-doors again. On tho day following the sorrowful little journey to the hemlock grove, there had been a heavy snowfall, and the ground had been covered all winter. One day, near the first of April, Joseph was missing. Nobody knew where he was. At last John discovered tracks in the snow leading off toward the evergreen wood, and he started to follow them. But he soon came to a sudden halt as he looked ahead. There was Joseph, and-could he believe his eyes?-there was surely Old Jim walking at his side ! How well he knew thc white foot, and the white star in the forehead! John bounded forward, and in a moment was covering Old Jim with tears and caresses, while the horse whinnied and rubbed his head against the lad's shoulder. "Oh John!" cried Joseph; "I couldn't kill him that day, so I just tied him with a little string, and shot the gun into the air, and there he has lived all winter, and pawed away the snow to get the grass;and-oh, do you suppose father will care?" "Care!" echoed John. "He has said moro than once that he would give anything to have him bad: again. Why, ho will be the happiest man in town." And Old Jim lived on oats and bread and butter and sugar and kisses the rest of the day, and for years afterward dwelt in comfort and happiness on the old Vermont farm.-Harper's Young People. The French Broad* The French Broad River, ' although it has but few claims, to celebrity, size or importance. 1 has a beaut}' all its own and is ? well worthy of mention. Rising ' in the Blue Ridge Moutains of North Carolina, celebrated for their pricturesque and magnificent scnery, it pursues a winding course for about 100 miles and then mingles with the waters of the Ohio. The spirngs that give it life are situated in the wildest re cesses of the mountains still known to sportsmen as the haunts of the bear and deer. For the first fifteen miles of its course it is an ideal trout stream, with waters clear as crystal and cold as ice. The early spring is the proper time to'visit this portion of it, for then its beauty baffles description. During the month of May the mountain laurel and wild rhodod endron are in full bloom, and as the banks of the stream are fringed with them the dark green leaves of these shrubs, their pink blossoms and the sparkling water create a picture so lovely that no eye could fail to be charmed by it. But after rushing through many a mountain gorge, some of which are so narrow and deep that the light of day never penetrates their gloomy solitudes, the French Broad reaches the valley below and there its character undergoes a complete change. It is trans formed, as if by magic, from a roaring torrent to a peaceful and slow moviDg river. Its banks are ni longer clothed with dense forest and almost impenetrable thicket, but covered with well kept fand prosperous farms. One could scarcely believe this broad stream with hardly a ripple upon the surface of its placid waters, to bi the same that a few miles bael came leaping down the mountiir side, creat'iig many * a minaturi waterfall and cascade in its de scent. However, sad to say, the Frene! Broad boon loses its picturesqui aspect, for the charm: ng mountair stream deteriorates into a muddy sluggish river, and the country through which^it flows, although highly cultivated and fruitful does not bear comparison with th< rugged grandeur of that abov< described as embellishing the firs few miles of its course. Happy at Last. Bishop Williams ol Connecticut i s celebrated as a raconteur. H< tells of a Canadian lady who foi years lived unhappily with he; husband. The man was a good easy-going fellow, but his wife'i tempei was ungovernable, and al length drove him into a prematuri grave. At his death his wife seemed to feel great remorse for the past, and deep mourning and constant weeping bore testimony to her grief. Some months after the funeral she went to a spiritualistic medium and was placed in communication with the spirit of her departed spouse. A long conversation followed, during which she asked : ''Are you happy now dear husband?" "Oh, very happy,"|ne answered. "Happier than you were in thia w*rld?"| she asked. '*A thousand times," was the reply. "I'm so glad," she said ;j"and where are you darling?" "Oh, I'm in h-ll," came the reply. Proverbs of Youth. Toothache is worst just before school time. It disappears about 9:30 a. m. It is injurious to a boy's health to carry a scuttleful of coal up two flights of of stairs ; but a football game many be indulged in for several hours without harmful fatigue. Sweeping is bad for a girl's back and arms; but dancing all the evening is good exercise. Whittling is a recreation ; but picking up the chips makes the back acho. Never study at night. It is bad for the eyes. But one may read fairy tales until midnight with profit and pleasure. A weary child should never run errands after school time ; but he may go a-skating until 6 o'clock, for skating is healthful. Practicing scales on the piano should be avoided. It makes mamma's headache worse. But a real jolly pillow fight up stairs may be indulged in if tho thumps are not too frequent, Blacking one's boots is dirty work; but playing mumble peg is only fun.-Harper's Young People. A.

Under the rule and inspiration of the art- decorator, a curious confusion and introversion of ideas has come to pass. Instead of a room being the reflection of the person who mostly lives therein, (which should make the sight of a roora, even more th? that of a person's friends, he a true index of character), the room is now looked opon as the niling guide. The owner most live np, dress up. to the room; she must try to harmonize with the room instead of her roam being brought into harmony with her. lin i fact, she is like a person who has bought : * particular picture frame and muBt . strive to find some picture that will fill ! it fairly weil.

SELECTING ANO TRAINING ANIMALS FOR FIRE ENGINES. C-M arable Patience and a Period of About a Month It Needed for Baw Re cruit?-Thc Boree Plays an Important Part at Every Fire la a Bl? City. Of the praise which has been showered upon the New York fire department for the excellence of its system, the splendid animals that haul the heavy engines and tracks have their share. Any one who had watched one of the crack engine companies tearing through the street in response to an alarm cannot have failed to notice how the horses strained every t?asele to cover the distance as quickly as possible, with scarcely a touch from the driver's whip. Some of the horses show an almost human intelligence in the quickness with which they respond to the alarms sounded by the big gongs. Nowhere can that be seen better than in the house of Engine 1, at Chambers and Center streets, where two horses, Jo and Charley, hold the record for the quickest time in getting into harness. Horses and men have to show off fre quently for the benefit of visitors. The foreman sounds the gong in one of these exhibitions, but does not release the horses at once, as the regular alarm does by electrical apparatus. The two big horses, whose stalls are on either side of the engine, strain at their halters and jump in ?heir eagerness to get to their places. The moment the foreman ro ldases them by touching an electric but ton they spring forward and duck their heads under the collars suspended with the rest ot* the harness from the ceil ing and ready to be fastened about their necks. Sometimes the foreman snaps the col lar beforehand to test the intelligence of the horses. Then Jo and Charley poke their heads through the closed collars and struggle until they get their heads through thom. At an actual alarm of fire tho horses will start on the instant, and they vie with the firemen in their eagerness to got to the fire. AN IMPORTANT ANIMAT? It is plain that the horse plays just as necessary a part tn the autonomy of the lire department as a human member. The more intelligent tho horse is the quicker the engine or truck which he is helping to haul will \H> at the scene of a ?ira Horses that enter into the spirit of the work as heartily as the firemen aro al most invaluable, for every moment saved frequently counts for much in saving rife and property, it follows that the training of thc horses which are added every year to the department is ns im portant as the training of the firemen, who must leam to handle the hose, ax and scaling ladder with expertness. Al though that branch of tho service ia heard of Keldom by the general public. Chief Bonner gives it tho strictest atten tion, and the recruits in horseflesh have to go through an ordeal just as severe as that which their human allies must un dergo. The training stables in West Ninety ninth street are in a quiet neighborhood and tba new building is used also as the department's horse hospital. Foreman Joseph Shea', who is also Dr. Shea,' has charge of the stables. He was grad uated as a veterinary surgeon and has bean connected with the department for eleven years. His position is one of the most important in the department. He looks after all the sick horses in the engine houses, and is kept busy at the hospital with the horses laid up there. He buys the green horses for the depart ment, accepting them only after they have shown their ability to do the work required. The commissioners allow $300 for the purchase of each horse, and Dr. Shea makes his selection from the big bunches of western horses in the Bull's Head market. He always selects a horse of good size, generally blocky, with plenty of muscle. The home that has speed and strength in good proportion is the horse that Dr. Shea is looking for constantly. TRAINING NEW HORSES. There are 800 horses in active service in the department, and about fifty re cruits have to be added each year. They usually go np to the Ninety-ninth street stable on trial, half a dozen at a time, and Dr. Shea has a month in which to accept or reject any one or all of the lot In that time he can tell whether the horse is likely to be of any value. As soon as the green horses arrive they are housed comfortably in the third story of the stable. Three roomy box stalls are there, too, and their doors indi cate hard usage. "Some of those green horses," one of the stablemen said, "don't seem to know anything else bat how to kick, and they do that with a vengeance." All of the new recruits do not take kindly to their new quarters and still less to the training. In the ground story the green horse gets his first lesson. He is usually four or five years old and barely broken to harness. A part of the story is partitioned off for atender or hose cart Tho customary big fire gong is on the wall, and all of the alarms from Morrisania to the Battery are sounded. In stalls beside the tenders the raw recruits are broken in, two at a time. At first they most become accustomed to the sound of the big gong. Most horses are so confused by the clanging that they are absolutely intractable for awhile. Some never get accustomed to the noise, and these are rejected. In the course of a day or two the average recruit begins to understand . that it bears a very close relation to his movements.-New York Sun. Or. Holland'? Advlee. After J. G. Holland's woman lecture in a New England town, where emanci pation had been embraced to a consider able extent, a young lady who was en gaged in the study of medicine said to him, "Doctor, what you say is very good for women who have husbands and chil dren, but what do you say to those of na who have none?" "I say get them," answered the doc tor. Meaelee More Fatal Than Influente. The mortality from measles exceeds anything that can thus far be directly attributed to influenza. It appears that over 13,000 deaths from measles occur annrp'', in England and Wales, and the mi jf mortality has greatly increased oaring the last decade. Why do we take no account of it? Because, 1 sup pose, measles is most fatal to infants, whereas influenza chiefly carries off the aged. We all of ns expect to grow old, but we can none of us hope to be yoong again. Yet the life of a healthy infant is of more value than that of a sexage narian who hos not strength to combat the influenza microbe.-London Truth. An Unique Tum-tummtr.

Danger In Stemming Flower?. Bad effects at times attend the stem ming of flowers; that is, the addition of wisps to short cuttings to make needed lengths in constructing bouquets or large forms of decoration. In this work, thin, threadlike wire is used for binding the lengths together. This wire is in pieces about six inches long and nearly as sharp as needles. In fast work the points are likely to run under the finger nails or enter tho muscles of the hands. As they are more or less rusty, an acci dent with them calls at once for the lo tion bottle and wrapping rags, or per haps poultice or salt pork applications later.
