HOTEL ST., orrOSITE UNION UNCLE JOHNNY APPLESEED Adapted for Little Children From "The Quest of John Chapman,'' by Newell Dwight Hillis. BY LILLIAN Once upon a time many many years ago, there lived a man called Uncle Johnny Appleseed. All the little children who knew him loved him very much indeed and when I tell you the story of the many kind things that he did to make the little folks happy, you also will love him, and think of him very often. His real name was John Chapman. I can not tell you in what year he was born, for the first record that we have of him was when he began his work for the little children, and that was in the year 17S9, more than a hundred years ago. For those of you who etudy geography, and who think of the Uni ted States as they now are, all one civilized country from Boston to San Francisco, with railroads over which people are carried so quickly and easily and comfortably, from the Atlantic Ocean straight across the continent to the Pacific Ocean, in less than a week's time, with beautiful big cities all along the way; and with wide fine roads over which one may drive in automobiles, it will be very difficult for you'to realize that when Johnny Appleseed began his work in 1789, that there were no cities west of Philadelphia, and that beyond Harrisburg there were no good roads only an old trail that led to the pass over the mountains beyond which was Fort Pitt, which is now the city of Pittsburg. The first settlers who went west into the new country, which was then only a wilderness, used pack-animals to carry most of their freight; the mothers and little children drove in big covered wagons, called Conestogawagons; the body of these wagons was shaped like a boat; and so, when the people came to a deep stream, the horses were de tached from the wagon, and it was floated across, and' the horses were made to swim. You little children who receive a let ter from a little friend in New York, two weeks after it was written, can not imagine how the pioneers sent let ters in those times. The mail-box was a hole in 'a tree; the tree was marked, so that everybody should know that it was a mail-box; letters without stamps were dropped into the tree-hole, and when some settler came along who was going east, he would gather up the let ters along the wa3r, and then mail them at the first real postoffice that he reach ed, and. the- friends in the east who re ceived them were only too happy to pay for the stamps. And so, m October, 17S9, Jonn Ciiap- man, a nne, strong young man, arnveu n western Pennsylvania. And what, think you, had he decided to dof To go on into the new west, and plant or chards; so that when the pioneer set tlers with their families should come and build their homes, they would find fruit trees already growing. From the good Quaker people ne got two boatloads of appleseeds; witn them he embarked from Pittsburg, and drifted down the Ohio river. Every ten miles he would land, search out a sun ny sheltered glade, dig up the rich dark soil and plant his appleseeds, then he would weave a rude brush fence around his little garden, so that the wild deer could not destroy it; then ne put tip a little sign, which said, "Take what you will, but guard the fence." When this was all done, he would return to the boat, and drift on down the river to his next landing-place. While he worked, the sun shone, and the ram fell upon the fertile soil, and the little seeds sprouted, and very soon the apple- trees began to grow; strong and tall they were and when the brave settlers came tobuild their homes in the wilder ness, they found the apple-tree boughs waving in the summer wind, and their branches bent to offer food for hungry children. And so for forty years did John Chapman continue to work for the peo ple; he planted hundreds of little or chards, not only of apples, but of peaches,' pears and plums. As the years passed by, all the settlers in the new country knew Johnny Appleseed, as they called him. And wherever he appeared. he was very welcome. One winter, he helped the lathers to build a little log schoolhouse, where he taught the children. They did not have all the conveniences that you children have today in vour schoolrooms. For blackboard, they had a smoothed plank, upon which the teacher wrote with a piece of yellow ochre, found on the banks of the Ohio river. Each scholar had a little box filled with white sand, and with a stick he would trace in the sand the word that the teacher had written on the board to erase the word, he rubbed a round stick over the sand. Paper was very scarce in those days; and for pens, the children searched in the forest for feathers dropped by some wild fowl. For ink, thev scraped the soot from the cabin chimney, mixed that soot with a little water, and then boiled it with the husk of the black walnut, and this made very good ink indeed. When the springtime would come again. Uncle Johnny would fare forth to tend his oreards." Soon he began to think that although the settlers were comfortable enough in their rude cabins, and had also plenty to eat. that their homes should be made more beau tiful: and so he male another trip back to his Quaker friends fh Penn sylvania, and there he gathered flower seeds: mignonette, heliotrope, and pinks, poppies and dahlias and asters: these all the people were so happv to help him to plant, and soon every little cabin had gay posies growing in the trout yard. Always Uncle Johnny's mind was filled with gentle thoughts toward every l.ving thing and when a heavv rain storm fell at night, at daybreak he left the forest to find some vine that had been torn by the wind from the tree to which it clung. With gentle fingers K. WILDER. he would lift the honeysuckle or wood bine from the ground, and tie it to the place that it might live in the sun shine. He also loved the little birds, and while working among his trees, his keen ears searched out from afar, the danger of a mother-bird, sending forth her cries of fear and alarm, because at) enemy had come to rob her nest. Driv ing away the hawk, Uncle Johnny would stand long in the edge of the thicket, watching the mother-bird that feared to return to her nest. But soon the birds came to trust him, and ho was never so happy as when the mother, knowing that her new friend would watch against the hawk, settled upon her nest, that was lined with down from her own breast, and cooed with con tentment. Uncle Johnny was so gentle and sym pathetic that he became the friend of all dumb animals, and any cruelty to them filled him with great sadness: he was the little brother of the squirrels, birds, and deer, and of all things that creep and crawl. One day he found a wounded squirrel creeping painfully toward ifs tree an Indian arrow had pierced its leg and broken it, and the maimed paw could not hold the nut. A hundred times the squirrel, foreseeing the coming of winter, and the fall of frost and snow, started to carry the nut up the side of the tree, and as many times it failed, and the nut dropped to the ground. Forgetting aught else, the squirrel's friend went to a hickory tree, and gath ering there a bag: of nuts, he climbed up into the tree, and emptied the full store into the nest, that was hidden in the darkness. Think, children, how grateful the little squirrel must have been to that kind friend who had so provided it with food for its little family for the coming winter. No need more to worry, J)ut simply to rest and take care of its poor broken leg, which when warm springtime came, was strong and well again. All little children loved their friend Uncle Johnny Appleseed. And do you wonder f Was he not a kind and gentle man? Doing good wherever he found good to do. And now, when on winter nights, in the western country, the mothers bring up from the cellars the beautiful big red apples, and roast them on the hearth before the blazing fire, the fathers take their little ones upon their knees, and tell them the story of the man who, many, many years before, planted the orchards for them. And later, the children, kneeling be side their little beds, say a prayer for that Uncle Johnny Appleseed whom they have never seen, but whom they dearly love, " ' BUSINESS LOCALS.
