A Boy s Enterprise
The late Edwin D. Morgan, the war
Governor of the State of New York,
was a Yankee of the kind we read about
in books. When he was a lad of seven
teen he bade good-by to li's father's
farm ia Berkshire, Ma^s., and made his
way to his uncle Nathan's at Hartford,
Cr>., having a capital of tliirtv-seven and
a half cents, and "a good head for fig
ures. "
Uncle Nathan kept a grocery store,
and took the boy into it at a salary of
sixty dollars a year and his board, to be
increased to seventy-five the second
year, and to one hundred the third.
In two yea-s Edwin learned the bus
iness, and his uncle sent him to New
York to buy gocd3, particularly com,
an article which New England then had
to import. Uncle Nathan generally
laid in two or three hundred bushels at
a time. * f
"I have bought two cargoes of corn,"
said the lad on his return, "and proba
ably the vessels are in the river now. "
" Why, Edwin !" cried the prudent old
gentleman, aghast, what are we to do
with two cargoes of corn ?"
"Oh," sa : d the young man, "I have
sold all of it that you won't want at a
profit, and could have sold three car
goes if I had had them. I stopped in
at the stores as I came from the stage
oflice and made sales."
The next morning the young operator
tcok the broom as usual, and was about
to sweep out the counting-room, when
Uncle Nathan said:
"I think we can find some one else to
do the sweeping here. A man who can
go to New York and buy two cargoes of
corn and sell them without consulting
his principal, can be better employed
than sweeping ont a store."
Uiicle Nathan took him into partner
ship forthwith, ard, five years later,
Edwin founded a grocery house in New
York, which still exists, after having
enriched its founder and several asso
ciates. His strong point was judgment.
He made few mistakes.
* The great ice-fields in the North
Atlantic, says the Rochester Democrat ,
are probably the causes of our very
chilly weather. Were it not for the
enormous ice drift out of Baffin's bay,
each year, our climate would be quite
mild in comparison with what it is. The
vast field of ice and monstrous bergs
rob the air of its warmth and produce
ch Ring winds. The iuflnence of the
GnJf stream is neutralized until the ice
disappears.

womanly.— G adstone.
Under ordinary circumstances there
is no accounting for names, but there is
a clergyman in minois bearing the name

How a Belroiter Found Water.
I had married and afterward settled
in the city of Detro it about 1844 or 1845.
I bought a lot at the extreme southern
limit of the city; one line of my lot wa?
the city boundary; it w'as adjoining an
orchard. Being so far out, the popula
tion was sparse, and the water-pipes had
not been laid, so the citizens of that
section depended on weih. I trail ,
and residing on my lot, and, not having
put down a well, depended on my neigh
bor for water. We had long dry spells
or droughts, when mo3t of the wells
were dry. I delayed putting down a
well until the next season of drought.
Then the question to be decided was
whereon the lot to locate it, the lot
being about 50x100. It happened that
one cf my young sisters, aged about 10
years, was visiting us. She had never
heard of finding water with a forked
twig. One Sunday afternoon, at the
very latter end of our periodical drought,
I was talking with my wife about dig
ging a well, when all at once the:-e
rushed into my mind the remembrance
of Anna finding water in "York State"
for uncle on his farm. I related the
circumstances, and proposed to get
some twigs and let my wife and sister
try them, and see if they would work in
their hands.
The next trouble was to get the wil
low forked twigs, for, as I supposed at
that time, nothing but willow would
work, and, as there was not a willow in
the city nor State that I knew of, my
wife proposed that I shcul l go into the
orchard adjoining and get some apple
tree forked tw'g3. With no faith in
them I prepared some, and, placing one
each in my wife's and sisters hands, in
the position as nearly as I could re
member having seen it held, and hold
ing one myself, we sallied out into the
yard, and went marching around pro
miscuously. All at once my wife cried
out excitedly, "The twig works in my
hands." Walking a little further on,
«Town went the single upper end, plumb.
My sister, seeing the operation, held
hèr twig in position, when plumb down
it turned, frightening her so that she
screamed and dropped her twig. I was
as much surprised as they were, and at
first thought they were playing a joke ;
they declared they were not. However,
I quietly marked the spot, and to re
move all doubt I blindfolded both and
led them all around the yard; whenever
we came to where the stream of water
ran underground the twigs would point
down in both their hands. I had full
f iith to dig a well around the point in
dicated, and I found abundance of water.
Even in times of drought, while my
neighbors' wells gave but, mine had
plenty; so much so that my well fur
nished onr family and neighbors and
their domestic animals during such peri
ods .— Forent and Stream.
