'Twas when I wa- conrtlng KUo
fttat the accident Vm going to tell you
oout happened. But for the samo a
efdent, 1 don't think Katie an' I would

taj father was set anin tho match,
Katie being only a laborer's daughter,
ATaile he himself wai foreman in the
kere Hour to teli vou alxwt it. for 'twas
he that saved my life, through hitting
on a plan that never ones came into
the heads of mo or of ray com-ad e
e, or of those that you'd hare thought
vcrald know better tksa any of as.
I was not brought up to my father's
trade, having been taken when young,
ey a brother of ray mother's, a master
brlcklaver living la the town. When
y nocie died Io&mo home to Llsgarran
ferabtt, lift to see my father, and
fM'.sg that they were at work on the
ew buildings at the milk, I looked for
employment there, aa got It at one.
Llagarrnn Mill is a Sour mill, an' a
pretty place it was Ib those days, with
the river running just bV the old red
brick huildlngs, an' the big water-wheel
always going round an' roand. Tho
rlrer falls into a la-rer one a little
lower doara, an the tide comes up as
far as the milt so 'tis in boats that most
of the corn is brought in, aa' llm (tour
tarried away. 'Tisn't half so pretty a
place bow; there are big whitewashed
bulld'ngs fJongsido of the old brick
ones, the big wheel is stopped, an' you
hear the wLirr of the engines instead Of
the sound of the water. But they
makes a power of money there, an'
gives a deal of employment.
As I was ssTlngT I got taken on as a
torick-layer. "Katie's father was work
fag there, too, an1 I used to see her
Bringing him his dinner, and, after a
MtTl began to think that I'd like to
hare her bringing mn mine, too. She
"was a pretty a girl then as you'd see
anywhere she's good-looking to this
day an I' soon became that fond of
her that I'd hTe done anv thing a' most
to get her. She nereeU was willing
enough; 'twas my father that made the
difficulty. He was a proud man, as
frond in his way at any gentleman, an'
e was right down mad at the notion
pf my marrying a Inborer's daughter.
To be sure I was earning good wages,
an' might hare married without asking
any one's leave If Td been so minded,
but 1 didn't like to go again' the old
man that had always been good to me.
Beside, Katie wa just as proud as him
elf, an' would hare nothing to say to
Be unless he was satisfied. I got the
master to speak to him, but, sure,
'.wasn't a bitof use. "How would you
Ske, sir," he says to the master, "if I
lad ffdanghter, to have Master Philip
take up wuh'hef. aa' wouldn't that be
the same thing?" f believe that the
master didn't think It? Would be at all
the same thing; bat my father wouldn't
hear reason from him anv mors than
from me; so Katie an'.I had fast nothing
for It but to wait la1 tbe.hopd of his
coming round i-an' very little hop's we
aad of that same:
As we were puttlntr Hp ft' slbeVtafeiH'--
ae la the mill, we baa, of coarse, to
are a bie chimner, an' we got a man
down from town to build it one of
them charts that builds chlmaevs an'
nothing else, aa' thinks nobody Knows
tun thins about It but thelrsefres. I
was worklae alone with him, and. In
deed, 'twas I that built the most of it,
aa' a right good job it was. 'Twos
finished by Christmas ten years ago
thk Christmas coming on all but tho
lightning conductor, and that was not
put up, owing to tho master's wanting
to make iaimncs whea he' a go to Lioa

rate, there was a delay about the con

Mr. Brown, the strange workman, had

any time; an' thero the rope hung
dangling, week after week, until the

Once it had come, there was no good
losing any moro time in fixing It, so one
Saturday afternoon in January up I
went on a plank, slang securely at the
end of the rope, raj tools along with
me. an settled myself astride on the
stono coninsr. 'Twos rather lato la the
day, but the morning had been too wet
and stormy to work, arf the master

at home atop of the chimney as I was
on the ground, an' I worked on withont

Then, all of a sudden, I heard a rattling

Then I remembered that, a few days

who had only stared at first, now ran

they brflngrfc 'out a long ladder, an
lueil it on mo root oaiow me cuuuuoj.
I could have told them that 'twas too
short, knowing, as 1 did, the length of
every ladder in the place; bnt some
how, thonrrh I heard their shouts plain
ly. I could not make them hear mine; It
seemed as u ins voices wens op ue
smoke. Then there was a great delay
while they went for alon,rer ladder; anil
and this, loo. didn't reach hilf-way. A
man climbod uo it. however, an' called
out to know had I bit of string In my
pocket that I could let down. Not a
bit could I find. I had had a big ball
only the day before, but I had taken It
out of my pocket an' put It on a shelf

fastened them an' my pocket-handkerchief
together; but thy didn't near

When the Kite ata go up as iai, win

THE BOf EXIHSAXr IX BDSSI1.
a. 1V asori
Many ytirs ago. ha Peter the
Great was Czar of Rnsla, and when
the improvements that he was making
all over the country gave foreign work
bhi s fine, chance of caniinz high
a?s, a number ot emigrants landed
one eold winter moruInr at one of tho
J Russian ports on the Gh.'f of rmi-tnd.
' ti it thar ninlil nnd work, as ma
many others had done.
A curioos mixture they were men,
woman and children fro:n evurr coun-
try on either .-'de of the Dattic. Tall.
I trash-colored Swedes, in gray frocks
nd thick blue stockings; atotit, light
haired liarmsni. and ruddy, blue-eyed
Danes: bU-boatd Pomeranians, with
low forohea-ls and shaggy brown
beards: and short, snnat Finns, who.se

hat all emigrants who came ashore
I should be kept la one place till the
Cjtr's agents camo to examine them;
and the place where they were kept
1 was aa old warehouse, very bare and
ditmal-looklag. with nothing ia it but
few old sails and some heaps of
straw. Here they remained for two

port. The men smoked their pipes
and played cards, the women knitted
stockings or mended the clothes of
their husbands and children, while the
, little people played hide-and-seek ia
and oat of the dark corners, and made
the gloomy old place quite merry with
their shouts and laughter.
But there was one boy (a brlght-ered
little fellow with brown curly hair) who
took no part in the fun, but sat in a
corner by himself, chalking curious fig
ores oa the wall, which he seemed to
copy from the book In his other hind.
Anvone who had looked closely at these
figures would hvive seen that they were
Utters Russian letters and that some
times he would write a wholi word at
onoe. aad then put the meaning oppo
site It ia German. In fact, he was
teaching himself the language of this
new country that he had got into, aad
seemed to be pretty well on with it. for
every now and then ho would leavo on
writing, aal read a page of his book
without meeting a single word that he
could not raasttr.
'Look at Karl Osterman yonder,
slaving away at that book of his!" said
one of the men. -'Much good that'll
do him! As if one could s-tw a plank or
hammer a rivet any better for knowing
that crack-law lin-roP
" He's going to teach the Russians I
their own language that's what he's
atl" grinned another. " A regular pro
fessor, ain't hef far too clever for poor
fellows like us!"
" Av. he'll be a firrcat man one of
these dys," chimed in a third, with a
hoarse laugh, " and then perhaps ha'll
be kind enough to give us a job."
Little Karl s eyes sparkled, and ho
set his lips firmly, as if making up his
mind that he troufcf be a great man yet,
somehow or other; but he said nothing,
aad went quietly on with his work.
Suddenly the door flew open, and ia
came a Russian soldiur in a shabby
green aalform trimmed with faded gold
laoe. He was a very tail and powerful
man, with a dark, weather-beaten face
framed la close-cropped hair, and great
black eyes that seemed to pierce right
through aay one whom they looked at.
I say, my good fellows?' cried he.
"here's an order from the Czar, which
Fra to paste up la this room; and I
want to have It In German and Swedish
as well a Russian, that every one who
comes ia may be able to read it. Per
haps one of you would kindly lend me
helping head with the Job. for I'm
not very glib with foreign languages
The men rlanred meaningly at each
other, and the two who had been mak
ing fun of Oiterman looked rather
sheepish, as U thinking that they had
better have been learning Russian
themsslves Instead of laughing at him.
'Til do tt for jou, Mr. Uoldler."
said little Ostermvi. stopping boldly
forward, "If there aren't aay very big

Days. Fruit Prest Barren Tree.
A correspondent of the Jttttritnn
Agticulturixt sayst " 1 wish to describe
to you a method of making fruit trees
boar, that I blundered on. Some fifteen
years ago I had a small apple tree that
leaned considerably, t drove a stake
beside It, tied a string to a limb and
fastened it to the stake. The next year
that limb blossomed full, and not an
other blossom appeared on the tree,
and. as Tom Bunker sa'd. it set mo
to thinking.' and I cama to tho con
clusion that the string was so tight
that it prevented the sap returning to
the roots; consequently it formed fruit
budi. Having a couple of pear tree
that were large enough to bear but had
never blossomed, I took a coarse twine
and wound It several times around the
tree above, the lower limbs and tied It
as tight as I could. The next spring
all the top above the cord blossomed "as
white as snow, and there was not ono
b'ossom below where tho cop I was tied.
fV have since tried tho experiment on
several trees, with the same result, l
think It Is a much better way than cut
ting of the roots. In early summer,
say June or July, wind a string twine
larouna tne tree or a single iimu. mu
tie It, tho tighter the belter, end you
will he blessed with the result. The
next winter or spring tho cord may be
