THE N. B. CLUB.

of the beds, while the only chair

James Johnson, the recently elected
dent of the society.

this was to be the name of the Asso
to the object of the Club, perhaps it
be best explained by giving the speech
e by Jimmy, when he was elected to
high office of president.
Fellow news-boys," he, "you've known
for several years, and I guess you'll say
t I'm a hard worker. I've tried to be
eat-and you all know that we have our
ptations as well as other people. I've
sys had to look ppt for myself, and, un
about a year ago, to take care of my lit
brother Willie; some of you knew him,
d recollect what a kind-hearted, jolly
Ie fellow he was. Well, I worked every
y from morn till night, and Willie and I
ways had enough to eat and clothes to
ear. Then you remember how Willie
t sick and was taken to the Brothers'
ospital, where he died.
" Well, after Willie was gone I went
k to my work, but I was changed; I
k no pleasure in the theatre or other
usements. I wanted to be something
tier than I had been; so I tried to save
ney, but somehow it all slipped through
fingers, and at the end of a year I found
yself as poor as at the beginning. It
ma to me that I have always smoked; I
n't remember when I didn't. Well, I
neluded to try and give it up ; and
an I wanted to smoke I took the money a
r would cost and put it away, and at
end of a month I had saved a dollar.
r that I saved, and saved, and now I
e twenty-five dollars all my own.
Now, it was the hope that others might
I have done that made me get you to
er to-night, and we have formed a
ty, and we mean to meet every night
sprovement, and to encourage each
to save our money, so that when we
der we can get into a better business ,
selling papers, and, by keeping out of I
streets, we shall have better habits.
w, the rule of the society is that evdry t
low is to pay in ten cents a week, to be
ad for him; and, as you have trusted
e to keep the money, I promise to do my
t; that's all I have to say."
The N. B. Club prospered, its members
creased, and the amount of money saved
as considerable. There was serious talk I
hat so large a sum ought not to be carried
bout by any one boy, but should bedeposit
din the bank. The subject was to come
p at the very next meeting.
But when the meeting came, Jimmy
ohoson was not present!
The next day the boys inquired every.
where about Jimmy, but could discover no a
trace of him. Was it possible he had run
away l Had he become a defaulter t Was E
the money lost t Great was the conster
nation of the N. B. Club. Someof the boys
lost confidence in their president, and c
openly accused him of going off with the t
money; most of them, however, stood by .
him, and said he would turn up safe and
sound, and the money be found all right.
But what had become of Jimmy I
On the afternoon of the day on which
Jimmy was missing; he was busy selling I
paperson the dock near one of the river
steamboats. It was just time for the de
parture of the boat, and there was a great
crowd of passengers hastening on board.
Jimmy stood near the gang plank, offering
papers to all who passed. The noisy bell
was ringing to harry the late passengers on
board when a carriage drove up, and a
gentleman, with his wife and child and
servant, alighted. Jimmy, thinking there I
was no chance of selling more papers, was I
walking away from the boat, when he heard I
a shout, "A child overboardl" He imme
diately ran back, and there he saw, strug
gling in the water, the little girl that, a mo
ment before, had stepped smilingly from
thecarriage. He stood for a moment, as
did the others, apparently spell bound. i
All was confusion; no one seemed to know
what to do. There was not a moment to
be lost. Jimmy dropped his papers on the .
dock, palled off his jacket, and plunged
nto the river after the sinking child.
For a moment they both disappeared from
iew; there was a shriek from the mother,
nd the offer of thousands of dollars from
he agonized father to the one that would
ve his child.
Soon Jimmy arose to the surface and
"ed to release himself from the grasp of
nearly drowned girl; he was an expert r
.ammer, but the child clung to him so i
ghtly that he feared she would carry him
rder. Just then a rope was thrown to I
m, which he managed to reach and I
s around him, and soon they were
wn to the deck of the steamboat. As 1
rwas puast the time of degrture for the
Sbat the moment the child was rescued
the gang-plank was drawn aboard, the
bell rang, the large wheels commenced to I
move, and the boat started on her voyage.
The little girl and Jimmy lay uncon- I
saious on the deck. The mother was uver-I
joyed to regain her treasure, and embraced
her again and again. But both needed I
restoratives, which were immediately ad
ministered, and in a abshort time they were
pronounced out of danger.
Soon Jimmy was up and around, and his
first movement was to feel for his Jacket
r, and hisb money. Both were gone. What
shaboald he do" How could he meet his as
sociates of the N. B. Club He ran to the
oapiain and begged to be put ashore, but
much to his sorrow his request was denied.
If he had not been so exhausted, he would
undoubtedly have Jumped into the river
and tried to swim ashore, but now he knew
'o it was useless; so be sat down and began
" to cry. He was thus giving vent to his
a feelings when the father of the little girl,
he who had just left her bedside, came look
ing for him; Jimmy begged him to get the
me captain to put him ashore, and informed
e, him of his lossand all about the Club.
ch The gentleman told him it was useless
'i to try to get the captain to stop the boat,
and he would therefore have to stay on
board until next morning, when they
ad would reach their destination. "But do
nd ot worry about your lose," said he, "for
- I shall make it good to you many times
over; besides, I want to know ail about
you, for you rescued my darling child, my
be only daughter, at the risk of your own life,
ir and when strong and able men stood idly
Ad looking on. I feel that I can never repay
Jimmy protested that he would accept
V nothing but the money he had lost. Finding
he could not get ashore, he dressed himself
a in the clothes that were borrowed for him,
ate a hearty supper, and received quite an
ovation from all on board. During the
evening he told the gentleman the history
if of his short life, and promised that after he
DO had seen his friends and given them their
e money, he would come and visit him at his
Imagine the joy of the N. B. Club when,
e after an absence of two days, Jimmy re
turned, dressed like a gentleman, and
handed them their money. Then he related
his adventure, and told them of his promise
it to visit his new-found friends. At Jimmy's
h request the boys agreed to continue the
to meetings of the Club while he was away.
Jimmy's absence was rather longer than
'n he had expected. for his friends persuaded
'y hidh to stay day after day; and When, at
e last, he insisted that his business would
r be ruined if he did not at once go back to
re it, he was somewhat startled by the pro
position that he should not return at all,
but remain with the gentleman as his
°, adopted son.
y Jimmy had become very much attached
7 to the friends who bad treated him so
kindly, and could not refuse their generous
O offer ; he only proposed one condition
1e that he might take leave of the N. B. Club
wbidh condition was readily granted.
Jimmy had to make one more speech to
it the Club, and that, as you may suppose,
was fall of good advise. Nor did he after
tr wards lose eight of his old comrades, and,
g though living in a happy home himself, he
'e often helped them by money and sympathy;
h and years after, when they had grown to
be men, there were many pleasant meetings
of those who had first formed the N. B.
d SELF RELIANCE NECESSARY TO SUC.
r. Self-reliance, conjoined with promptitude
I in the execution of our undertakings, is in
dispensable to success. And yet multitudes
it live a life of vacillation and consequent
- failure, because they remain undetermined
a what to do, or, having decided that, have
it no confidence in themselves. Such persons
h need to be assured; but this assurance can be
e obtained in no other way than by their own
easuccesses in whatever they may attempt for
f themselves. If they lean upon others, they
not only become dissatisfied with what they
y achieve, but the success of one achievement,
a in which they are entitled to but partial
d credit, is no guaranty to them that, unaid
y ed, they will not fail in their very next
For want of self reliance and decision of

d appointed and chagrined at this, they un
derestimate their own capacities, and
e thenceforward, relying on others, they
take and keep a subordinmate position, from
y which they ries. when they rise at all, with
the utmost difficulty. When a young man
attains his majority, it is better for him, as
o a general rule, to take some independent
n position of his own, even -thugh the pre
s sent remuneration be lees than he would
obtain in the service of others. When at
a work for himself, in a business which re
I quires and cemands foresight, economy,
e and industry, he will naturally develop the
y strong points of his character, and become

g lier years. The former transact their busi
r ness with ease, promptitude, and profit.
They rely upon themselves, and execute
t what they have to do with energy and dis
L. patch. But those who shirked everything
g in their youth are compelled to rely on
l their clerks and salesmen for advice, and
o are never ready to act when occasions of
a profli arise. Many parents commit a Ia
I mentable error is this respect. They lead
a their children to believe that they can do
s nothing without )he constant assistance of
I their superiors, and after arhile the child be
comes impressed with that idea. Fortunate
will it be for him when he emerges from
the parental roof, if he can at once acquire
the self-reliance which has been kept down
at home-otherwise he must necessarily fail
in whatever independent enterprise he
undertakes; and in such a case, while the
misfortune is hise own, the fault lies at the
door of misjudgingparents than at his own.
A PRACTICAL JOKER.
Several American and Parisian papers
1 give accounts of the extraordinary proceed
ings of a French gentleman of independent
means, whose one object in life appears to be
Sto worry Custom Houefiese of He has re
turned to his native Paris, and everywhere
Irailway officials have been wagned about
his pranks. "It is his wont," says the Amer
ican Register, "to pack a huge trunk full of
trowser-straps, such as are worn with gai
I ters, using hydraulic pressure, as if it were
necessary to cram five bushela into a three
bushel space, then to lure the inspectors to
open it as asuaspicionus package, when natu
I rally the contents are overset, and the whole
force of the Custom House is kept busy
for hours in putting them back. A power
fuol Jack-in-the-box was another device of
hise that was very successful." But more
than this is corrently reported of shis gen
Stleman. It-is his practice sometimes to
Sleave a hamper of very high game at a par
cel ofice, and not take it out, simply send
ing messengers to inquire privately how
the strength of the odor was progressing.
When the ofcers at the parcel office could
Snot endure the infliction any longer, and
at row the ham'per .away, K. TViver would
s- appear and politely request the return of his
he gqods. Of coarse a great commotion would
ait follow, which in every way, often by the
d. aid of lawyers, would be prolonged by M.
Id Vivier to his intense seoret delight. Ap
or pealq to Parisian oourts would be threaten
iw ed to humble village oofficials, who were
in warned of the nature of court costs. On
is one occasion it is said that M. Vivier
rl, blandly asked an old gentleman bathing
k. at Boulogne if--he had seen the shark.
be The awful hint spread as a fact far and
ed wide. Next day it appeared that every one
had seen the monster. No one bathed. M.
as Vivier, smiled, sipped his Bordeaux, and
it, took his departure, thoroughly gratified.
)n He had his powerful Jack-io-the-box with
iy him to meet all emergencies at the railway
Io stations on the way. Another story is told
or of his appearing at a railway station with
0s two valises. The officer ourtly inquired if
ut they contained anything contraband. "You
)y can seesee for yourself," said Vivier, bland

If table of permitted articles was anxiously
