WHAT JOHN FOUND.
J Recess was nearly over. The boys
and girls'gathered in the play-ground
outside of the log school house, but no
play was going on. Most of the boys
had their books in their hands, and
were poring over them as if to make
up for all the idle time of their lives:
the girls sat on the wood-pile, whisper
ing and looking at the boys with a
kind of awe.
The school house was built just out
side of a mountain village in North
Carolina. The boys were dressed in
butternut, or blue cloth, the girls in a
kind of linsey, all of which their moth
ers had spun and woven.
Outside of the fence was a gang of
little negroes, whom the white children
ordered about with an air of authority;
for, poor as they were, their fathers
nil were slave owners. There was a
row of shiny black faces at the top of
the fence.
“Gorrv! Look at Mas’Will! I tink he
get it!”
“Pshaw! G’long. you Victory! Our
Mas’ Bob's twict as good a scholar.
See how he pokin’ into dat book.”
The others volunteered no opinions,
but shouted:
“Hooray! Which of yea gwine to be
de sojer? Mas’ Bob Sevier he gwine!
Cunnel Bob Sevier! Hooray!”
Never had there been such a day
known in Uncle Job's school.
Bob Sevier, a fair, thin boy, with
round blue eyes, sat on the steps,
turning over the leaves of his "Histo
ric Sacre.”
He knew every word and line; but
he turned leaf after leaf with his cold
shaking fingers.
“When the little negroes shouted
iui c/uuuci jjuu. nc- icii a uimji m
his throut choking him. If lie should
not win! Bob lmd always been head
boy in the school, but during the last
month he had worked harder than
ever. The cause was this- Judge Pet
ers, who was now Congressman from
this district, had paid a visit to the
village a few weeks before, and had
dropped into the school one morning
and made the boys a little speech.
“I was a pupil here,” he said. “There
is the very desk at which I sat. Un
cle Job taught me pretty much all I
know. My father could not afford to
send me to college, and I am sure
neither can your fathers afford to send
you there. But I want to gire some
boy here a chance such as I did not
have. I have the appointment of a
cadet to West Point, and I propose
instead of giving it to some rich man's
son, that the boy in this school who
passes the best examination a month
from now shall have it.”
This was the speech. It made the
boys as wild as if he had put fire into
their brains. Not a boy there who did
not see himself a colonel in full regi
mentals, preceeded by a brass band,
riding up the streets of the village in
triumph. They fell to studying, most
of them for the first time in their lives.
They never ha’d done anything but
lounge about the sunny, chilly high
land hamlet, listening to the intermin
able stories of the hunters, who came
in with peltry, or playing “sisty out”
with the little negroes.
John Fremoy, the shabbiest of them
all, sat apart from the other boys with
his sister Louise.
“Now, Lou, just hear me this page,”
and lie began: “ ‘Charlemange, other
wise Charles the Great, was the son of
Pepin the Short, the first of the Carlo
vimrian—Carlovinomn*—wlmt c.
next?”
“ ‘Dynasty, ”’ prompted Lou.
“And what’s the meaning of ‘dynas
ty,’ I’d like to know? such rubbish! I
don’t understand a word of it! There’s
no use to try, Lou!”
Lou's eyes filled, and the tears rolled
down her flushed cheeks; but John
only shut his jaws a little firmer, and
fixed his dark eyes on the ground.
They were honest, kind eyes, but dull:
very different from Bob Sevier’s, which
glowed like lamps.
“I might as well give up, Lou. Un
cle Job says patience and hard work
will take any boy through. Now, Bob
Sevier don't work half as hard over his
books as I do; but just look at him.
I reckon he could go over the Carlov
ingians, or any other Vingian, like a
trottin’ horse.”
“Oh, yes, I reckon he could,’’groaned
Lou. “But only think of West Point,
Jack! You’d be a gentleman and a sol
dier, and see the world. An’ ef you
don’t get it, why, then—”
“Then Uncle Bill will set me to plow
ing in the Fall. He said only this
morning he'd wasted enough money
on our schoolin’, and you and I be to
go to work to earn our salt.”
John took up the book and went at
the lesson with a desperate energy-,
while Lou sat crying silently-.
The children were orphans and lived
with their uncle, a farmer, on Mount
Craggy. He was wretchedly poor, like
all the other mountaineers, and was,
beside, a coarse, hard-natured man.
The scliool-bell rang.
“It’s coming now,” said John, as he
got up and shut the book.
‘ Your powerful on ’ritlmietic, John
ny, mind that. Jest you keep up,”
eagerly whispered Lou, running along
beside him.
The boys crowded into the hot little
school-room, and the girls, followed,
xcepting Lou, who hung back, and
finally went to the wood-pile again.
She knew she should not be missed,
and she could not bear to hear John's
examination.
The poor little girl had but one
friend in the world, her brother. She
sat down, her hands shaking as if ir. a
chill.
“He’ll fail—I know he’ll fail!” she
said, looking up to the sky and talking
out loud.
“I can’t stand it! Oh, Heavenly
Father! I can’t!”
As with most Southern children,
“Heavenly Father’ was very real to
Lou. There she began to pray, fast
and hard, to this far-away Friend in
the sky to help John.
“Oh, dear, only get him over the
Latin, and them Vingians! He’ll man
age the arithmetic himself.”
She sat there an hour or more, hear
ing only a droning voice now and then
from the open window.
At last there wasahusl). Uncle Job
was going to give his decision. The
little negroes crowded up to the school
house steps.
Lou stood up and threw her calico
sun-bonnet olf her head. She did not
know what she did. she was stifling
with sudden, terrible heat. Her strain
ed eyes were on the door.
Presently she heard Uncle Job’s voice
in a few brief words. But she did not
catch them. They sounded to her like
“John has won—John Fremoy.”
Suddenly there was a cheer inside.
Then the negroes took it up.
“Bob Sevier! Cunnel Bob? Hooray
for Bob!”
Lou sat down and covered her face
with her hands. Her brother came to
her in a moment.
“Get up, and come along home,’’ he
said roughly.
one caught ms arm and patted it.
“Don't you mind it, Johnny,” she
said. “You kin do lots of things Bob
Seviers knows nothin'about,” she cried,
fiercely.
“No, Bob won it fair,” he said, stur
dily. “I’m a dunce; I didn't deserve
it; that’s the worst of it.”
His face was colorless, even to his
lips, but he showed his disappointment
in no other way.
Judge Peters came to the village the
next day, heard the report of the ex
amination, sent for Sevier, and prom
ised him the appointment.
He then went out to the farm which
he owned, near to Cabel Fremoy’s,
John’s uncle. The boy crept over, to
ward night, to catch a glimpse of the
great man who might have made him
happy for life, but had not done it.
He hung miserably about the place
until evening, aud then set out home
ward.
Coming to the edge of Craggy Creek,
just where it turned from the moun
tain, he sat down on the bank, and put
his hot feet into the water. To-mor
row he was to be set plowing with the j
negroes.
“It’s all yer fit for,” his uncle said, i
“Ye'd a chance for West Point, an’ ye
didn't take it. So ye ken kennel with
the darkies for the rest of yer life. I’ll
feed ye no more.”
John sat moodily flinging pebbles
into the water, until dusk came on,
and an owl began to hoot.
Suddenly the boy stood up, trem
bling with excitement, holding a stone
in his hand up to the fast-fading light.
It shone with a brilliant lustre, like a
great drop of dew in the morning sun.
As he moved it, it flashed a blood-star
in his dirtv nalui. John had heard nf
the ruby which had once been found
in the next gorge.
“It was worth thousands of dollars!”
he sobbed, rat her than spoke. “I heard
Judge Peters tell my uncle there was
a corundum on his farm, and a ruby is
a kind of corundum. I am ricli for life. ” 1
He sat down breathless, carefully rub- '
bing the brilliant lump in his hand, as 1
Aladdin might have done his lamp. 1
What was West Point to this? Money, '
beautiful houses, a glimpse of the world,
an easy, happy life for himself and
Lou.
“Poor Lou! I ivas so cross to her to
day! I'll go and tell her.”
Then he stopped as if some one had
struck him. The ruby was not his. He
was on Judge Peters’ land.
The boy sat down again, and for one
hour the tempter strove with him. If
there was one quality strong and dom
inant in John Fremoy, it was his hon
esty; but this was a temptation such as
seldom comes in the way of any man.
The next morning Judge Peters was
mounting his horse to go into the vil
lage, when a boy came across the yard.
He walked quickly, as if driven by some
force from behind.
The judge waited one foot in the
stirrup. As long as John Fremoy lived,
he remembered, like a sudden, terrible
picture, the glaring light of the little
muddy yard, the staring negro boy
holding the horse, the portly, kind
looking old man awaiting his approach.
When John reached the judge, he
was silent. He had his little speech all
ready, but his tongue was stiff and his
throat parched.
“Well my boy, what is it?” asked the
judge, kindly.
John thrust out his hand.
“A ruby, sir. It’s worth agreat many
thousand dollars. I found it on your
land.”
Judge Peters took the stone and ex
amined it eagerly; then he turned to
John, and looked at him as curiously.
“Why didn’t you keep if, if it is worth
I
so much?”
“I had a mind to but it's yours.”
He turned away.
“Stop boy! Who are you?”
“John Fremoy, sir.”
“Oho! Uncle Job spoke of you to me.
You are uncommonly quick at figures,
eh?”
“If I am, I'm a dunce at everything
else. 1 f I had not been, 1 might have
gone to West Point.”
“Ye-es," looking very thoughtfully at
John. “Very well, Fremoy, I’m very
much pleased with y. tur honesty. Good
morning!" And the judge rode abrupt
ly away.
He rode directly to Uncle Job’s house,
and was closeted with him for an hour.
The next day the villag was electrified
by hearing that Judge Peters was go
ing to take John Fremoy to Annapolis
to pass an examinaion in the engineer's
department, at the Naval academy,
and that Lou was to be put to school
in Raleigh by the same kind friend.
* ***** *
John Fremoy is now a middle-aged
man, ranking high in his profession.
He met Judge Peters about a year
ago. at his sister's house, for Lou mar-.
ried a planter in Virginia, and is a happy
wife and mother.
“I have often wondered, judge,” he
said, “why you befriended me as you
did. I certainly was a dunce as far as
Latin was concerned, and I am not
sure if I am accurate about the Carlov
ingian dynasty yet.”
“Honesty is a rarerquality than good
scholarship, and more useful in the
world, Fremoy.”
“And another question. Is not that
the ruby I found, which you wear on
your watch chain?”
“Yes."
May 1 look closely at it? ’
The judge hesitated, then laughed,
and gave it to him.
“Why, its only colored quartz!” ex
claimed Frernoy.
“Yes but it's more valuable to me
than any jewel, for it gave me an hon
est man for a friend.”— Rebecca Hard
ing Davis.

A Veterinary Experience.—In
the early part of the winter one of the
breeding sows, on account of exposure
to the cold by being turned into the
barnyard for a couple of hours, had a
severe attack of inflammation of the
lungs. With a great deal of effort, by
applying hot water and keeping up the
heat on the surface with hot bricks and
blankets, she wras restored to health.
She was so nearly dead that the skin
was blistered in a number of places
without her appearing to feel any
pain. For three days she never left
her bed or took any nourishment.
This was undoubtedly the best kind of
treatment. She appeared perfectly
well afterward and is now in fine con
dition. The same kind of treatment
^steaming and keeping hot) would un
doubtedly have, a year ago, saved a
Jersey calf which died from inflamma
tion of the bowels. In all such cases
the surface and extremities of the body
ire cold on account of the blood being
lriven inward, resulting in inflamma
tion in some of the internal organs,
where it settles, and the animal re
quires such vigorous treatment, as
medicines taken internally are not suf
ficient. The treatment must be
prompt and thorough, and the ani
mal must be kept warm afterward.
Such inflammation is caused by the
chilling of the body, and the renewal
if chills would be likely to be fatal.—
Col. F. D. Curtis, in Rural Hew Yorker.
On the Greely relief expedition great
liffieulty was experienced in making
he lamps burn. Kerosene oil is not
dlowed on a government vessel, lard
>il being used. When the ships got
nto the Arctic region the lard oil con
cealed, and the lamps went out. One
>f the sailors conceived the brilliant
dea of making the deck lamps burn by
placing one under the other. The
ipper lamp burned all right, but to his
lurprise and disgust the lower lamp
persistently went out. Finally one of
:lie officers took a copper wire, and
boring a hole in each lamp, put one
end of the wire in the oil and the other
in the flame. This kept the oil from
congealing, and the lamps burned.
Dr. Ames, of the “Bear,” brought
back with him a number of Esquimaux
dogs. On arriving in warm latitudes
they were all taken with a paralysis of
the hind legs. Dr. Ames had the dogs
clipped and kept in a cool place. They
are now beginning to get acclimated,
and have recovered the use of their
legs. If they live until Winter the
doctor thinks that they will become
used to the climate, and live their usual
length of years.
An old soldier declares that the gal
lant Sheridan, when on duty thirty
years ago in Texas, was the best singer
of Irish songs and dancer of Irish jigs
known in the whole regular army.
“He was no bigger than he is now ”
this informant emphatically asserts
“but he was livelier, I guess, and I
never go into a variety theatre that I
don’t see worse patter and trot (sing
ing and dancing) than Phil Sheridan
used to give us.”
