Go down and -. ask Jo and the rest to come up here o and I will tell you a story of some. re thing that happened in my school- Y of life that 1 remember as well as if it N gs were but yesterday." al Willie Fiske was one of the very g brightest boys in town, and although nt he loved fun as well as any of the le gs rest of his mates, yet he was very 3,. fond of study, and was never quite a contented until he reached the head 4I ' of the class in which he was. 05 When he was eleven years old be is ig- entered the grammar school, and bhis k of father said at that time, "Willie, if you ever get to be the first one of I1 m the first class in the first division- ti 'he that is, to be at the head of this p set great school-1 will give you a gold a I watch." It looked like' big job; but Wil "l. lie was quite ready to undertake it, the and answered: I ,a "All right, papa; you canU jaust s he make up youear mind to hand overthe t watch by the time Pm fourteemn years t Vaold." ieee He went to work very muh ia en earnest, and as he pased from timeI , totimethrough tha nte mm Iiead ol ***k-oftssT?4weeh5 to ee- gather-be begas to feel Wthat the be wasteh was a petty we thi ad it womld lmgI - hew grntd he deebl a blel to takIt ontLt ad 'tl she U I ar- e the time eO day. iaW i WlIe was ave gemme l b, isad wasee aevet as , W to ble he was ther them out of it. NOf ooere he wa great favorite with both the boys alws and girls, and no one ever seemed I cot to envy him becaus be he had rich father, or because he was so good a time scholar. hone Just as he reached his fourteenth can birthday he entered the highest whet class in the school. It was now that A the watch was to be woe or losa! kno lie had not been in the class a "d week before he found that he had a geog rival-a sweet little girl, named Ulit Flossie Lee. She had Just come into at it the school, as her parents had only ever receutly moved to our village from Will a distaut city, and Flossie, after an hisl examination, had been placed in the I'll t same class with Willie. it, m Of course she was a stranger to ftil. us all, but there was something so him pleasant i'i her face, and her man- them ner wits ao gentle, that if she had Ai chosen she could have had hosts of Floe friends, but she seemed to prefer to of ti keep a good deal by herself. Her geor simple dresses, with the neat ruffles class in the neck and sleeves, with her quic fresh white aprons that never seem et to get a spot on them, looked look very plain beside the stylish suits of ever the other girls. Perhaps she felt wisi this, and so kept apart from them. Y But one thing was sure: Flossie was col at that school to get her education, ric and she knew that she must make bye the most of her time. Her parents lak i did not have a great deal of money; to b but as their little girl was a fine 0" scholar, they felt that they most thu send her to school as long as they the could; and Flossie had often told "' them that she "meant to be a teachb. tes er and earn lots of money for them." tal So you see that, although she did not have a gold watch to work for, with she had something worth a great but deal more. And this Flossie Lee was the rival P I Willie had teund: for she very soon thoi skipped over all the others, and took no : her place at the head of the class; ** t r and it looked as though it was going for 7 to be a pretty hard task to get her and e out of it. witi c Quite in despair, one day, Willie hell said to his mamma: "It's no use trying. I tell you, I shall never get higher than number e two-never ! Flossie Lee can't fall. But there's one thing about it; if any has one has got to keep me from getting to the head this year, I'd rather it would be Flossie than anybody else , in school, for I like her first rate." of And I guess he did, for many a fine low d pear or bunch of grapes or delicious orange did Willie take from his own t' home table, and watch his chance bi -e to put them into Flossie's modest e little lunch basket that hung under gt l hessacque in the hall of the school, tIe ":or," as he told his mamma, one day, "Floesie never seems to have mu anything but crackers or bread and hl butter for luncheon, and she almost Fha always goes off by herself to eat it, t it when all the rest of as are having -y lots of goodies; and I tell yon it's Wi fun, mamma, to hide and watch her eyes shine when she finds the good I things I've put in! I guess she re thinks it's some good fairy that pots y. them there, don't you r 1e One day, at reeea., as a group of thi ad boysandgirlswere hatting together f O about a very hard lesson they had « just becn reciting, in which every 'one of the class had failed at least ho o't; once, save Flossie, one of the boys, th who was rather rough in his way, the YS called out: Is, d "Say, Will Fiske, you can bet on th , one thing pretty sere, and that is: sti : you'll never get that gold watch as el long as Flossie lee's in the class. iNumber one she is and number one K she will stay r" "I "I know that," smid Fanny Hunt W he Icy, who never had a perfect leseso in her life, "I should think you'd be fo ite as mad as Are at her, Willie, in ad stead of doing what I saw you do to-day. Who was it put that orange he into her basket, I should like to his know, eh " ,if "'Fore I'd be such a tell tale, FPs p of Huntley," said a bright little girl in i- the group; "if you weren't always w his pecking 'round you wouldn't see so p old much." p "I don't eare," sanwered Wil l- ."I am not ashamed of it.
