That Boy."
For a good many weeks I suffered from
the want of the right kind of an office
boy. At last I concluded to advertise
for one trustworthy boy; neat, gentle
manly, prompt, and diligent; one who
lived in Brooklyn, so as to take messages
to my house in that city when needed.
So I advertised thus:
"Wanted, in an office in New York, a
boy who lives with hia parents in Brook
lyn; who is prompt, neat, diligent, and
doos not nse tobacco. Address, in hand
writing of applicant, with recommenda
tions "
Now I was certain I should be snited.
Applications poured in by mail. There
were in all about a hundred and fifty
writtsn answers to my advertisement.
Some of them were literary curiosities.
The spelling of some was frightful, and
in a number of instances the penmanship
was enough to make me wish never to
sec the writers. Out of the whole lot I
selected about twenty which teemed
worthy of attention. I felt sorry for the
disappointed boys whom I could not
take,' for all had written as if they were
very anxious to have the place.
Concerning these twenty applicants I
made as thorough inquiry as circum
stances would, warrant, in aovoraL. cases
going in person to their houses to see
what kind of parents they had, how they
had been brought up, and what were
their surroundings. I saw some very
nice boys, and homes which were a credit
to the people that managed them. . I
wanted no profane little ruffian who
would spend his evenings and his earn
ings at the circus or the low theatre. I
had no use for the street boy, who goes
howling through the neighborhood at
night with a gang of disorderly fellow?,
pulling door-bells and smashing ash-
barrels. 1 do not want a boy for a week
or a month, only to discbarge him and
get another for a like term ; but I wanted
one who was worth treating well and
bringing up to business.
- At last I found a boy who seemed to
be exactly what was needed. I accepted
the lad, and he commenced to render
service. . He was tidy, respectful; and
tolerably prompt. He wrote a neat hand,
and desired to giva satisfaction.
Altogether he seemed to be by
far the best boy I had employed. But
perfection does not dwell in small boys
at lour dollars a wees. 1ms boy, like all
others, had his infirmities. True, be did
not smoke, spit, swear, drink wliiskey.or
use rude language. He did not niean to
neglect hia work. Perhaps, he did his
best; but he was needless. If a boy is
told to do a particular thing, it is with a
view of his'doing it. That is what the
boy is for. If it is a matter of uncer
tainty witu me whether lie will do it or
not, 1 can do no better than do it myself
than by telling him to do it. If he would
only say to me, "I will not do that,"
then I should know exactly what to do.
I kept that boy some time. I liked him
so well that I got along with his heedless
streak the best I could. 1 would talk to
him the best I knew how, and tell him
the mischief which would result is he
allowed himself to grow up a heedless
man.
One afternoon a leather satchel was to
be sent to my house, and that boy was to
take it. Often bad he taken packages
there before, sometimes this same pre
cious satchel. lou Know how a busy
man sometimes crowds valuable things
into a satchel of this kind especially if he
be both minister and editor. That day
the satchel was full to the mouth with
editorials, sermons, contributions from
writers, music, memoranda, books, lesson
work, and a little ot almost everything.
Alas ! alas ! My nice boy, who was
neat and tidy, who was prompt and punc
tual, who lived with lug parents, and did
not use tobacco, left that priceless pack'
age on board the ferryboat! He had no
desire that I should suffer loss; no inten
tion of doing wrong. He came to my
house and told me of the loss. He was
sorry and so was I; but neither our sor-
row nor tne advertisement x put into uie
careers ever brouerht the. bag back.
A month or two after I discharged that
boy. he had the assnrance to come to me
asking for a recommendation to the effect
that he was a reliable young person, and
altogether such a one as a man needing
an office bov could desire, V hat could
I do? I did not want to damage the lad's
Drospects: but could I recommend him
as worthv of confidence?
I want every boy who reads this to
bear in mind that whatever other good
traits he mar have, if a fellow is heed
less, and thoughtless, and forgetful, and
careless, he will never get along success
fully. If work is worth doing at all, it
ia worth concentrating the wholo mind
on. The highest type of godliness, as
well aa manliness, may be seen in him
who keeps every faculty of mind and
aoul wide-awake for business. Sunday

One day recently, as one of our prom
nent business men was about to en to
his favorite resort for dinner, he was
accosted by an individual with a decid
edly careworn expression who begged
that he would assisi mm w
thing to eat. As the man looked like
worthy object of chanty tne gentleman
told lum to go in, and tureoieu tne win
ter to cive him twentv-five cents' worth
of food and charge it to his check. After
finishing his own dinner the gentleman
was proceeding to settle bis check, when,
noticing a numerous look on the waiter's
face, he asked him what the hungry man
had ordered. Th reply was,"Five glasses
of lager."

route to Garland, offered to protoct the
freighters, bnt Berry and others ordered

Chicago, Oct 2J. Special dispatches
from Holland comment on the character
of wreckage of the Alpena which came
ashore there. It is stated tnat there are
in some cases absolute rotten timbers, so
that it is considered remarkable that she

who saw the condition of the timbers that
floated in were highly indignant. It is
claimed in behalf of Goodrich & Co., that
many or the pieces ol wood winch came
ashore were not parts of the Alpena wreck,
Mr. Squire, whose son was lost on the
vessel, has been on shore ever since the
news arrived or her loss, and expresses
belief tbat sfae Alpena and David A. Wells
may have collided, sinking the Weils and
disabling the Alpena so that she was un
able to cope wit h the waves. The Wells

Which Is Better Beer or Water I
A man once said to mo. "Do vou be
lieve there is more strength iu a glass of
water than a mug of ale?"
"Stop a bit," I answered; "that is not
a fair comparison. You pay five cents
foryonrmugof ale I get my glass of
water for nothing. Besides when I drink
my glass of water. I am satisfied with it:
but if you drink a glass of ale, directly
you must send down another to keep it
company, suppose now you get a quart
and pay twelve cents for it, and I take
the same amount of money, and pay six
cents for steak, and two cents for bread,
aud two cents for potatoes, and two cents
for apples, and have a glass of fresh
water for nothing. Which is the better?
I eat my dinner and am satisfied with it.
and go back to my work and earn more
money. You go back to the saloon to
get more ale, to spend your money, and
waste your time.
If tha beer drinker will abstain long
enough to get rid of the effects of bis
beer, ho will hud himself able to do
mncli more work than when he drinks.
One of the greatest champions of our
day, when he is training for a contest,
says there is nothing like cold water and
dnmb bells.
There is no greater mistake than to
suppose that beer and spirits strengthen
a man. They only stir him up and use
np his strength. I drovo twenty-four
miles the other day. When I got within
a mile or so of home my horse fagged. I
gave him a sharp cut with my whip and
he went faster, but I did not say "I've
strengthened my horse!" If that's the
way to strengthen him, why not let him
live on whip-cord ? Alcohol is a whip
to him that drinks it. and he is a great
fool that whips himself.
Home years ago two men took an early
start and walked over to a neighboring
town twenty miles away. Having
done their business they walked about to
seo the place, and met a fellow-townsman,
who proposed to return with them.
and invited them into a beer-shop for a
strengthening drink. "Ao, said they,
we are teetotalers, and we have had our
lunch. "But he could not go without a
priming of ale. At last they were off,
and for a while tlioy all kept even step,
till after some miles the beer man began
to lag behind, and. at the half-way
house he must have a bracer. After
three miles more he wanted another, and
this time it was whisky. Finally at fif
teen miles, he gave out entirely and
stopped for the night, where he was laid
up for a day or two; while they walked
on home and the next day were fresh for
busines. -
Oh, no, friends, all nature works on
water, and we believe that God meant
that man should do the same.
Take the water, friends, and all the
good things that go with it. God's bles
sing is in it.

yellow hair and dressed in odd taste. If
this statement be "Hat burglary it must

So, too, is Mr. Labouchere's statement
that "Moths" is "a most nasty book.

English mothers Ouida's writings have

A T0UAU HERO.
In June 18G0 the brig Tolly Deems.
Captain Job Parson, sailed from Boston
for a port of Turkey, laden with cotton
goods. he was a new, taut little vessel.
with plenty of storage room, aud had ac
commodations for two passengers.
The crew consisted of the captain, one
mate, four sailors, a black cook and a
cabin boy.
' Captain Payson was a conscientious,
just man, who treated his crew neither to
jokes nor grog, but who lodged and fed
them better than did hve out of six of the
masters sailing from New England ports
thosa days.
"Old Job." the. mate, who was from
the West, used to say "he was a hard
man, but .'one you could tie to in fair
weather or in foul."
His crew were picked men. and with
the exception of Dan. the cabin boy. had
leen with-him for years. This was Dan's
first voyage, and he felt that captain and
crew both eyed him with suspicion. He
was on probation, and he lelt that not a
grain of favor would be allowed him in
any error.
Dan was a farm boy, aud knew nothing
of the world beyond the village in which
was his mother's church.
'Keep your eyes open and yonr hands
ready to see the work of tho moment.
and to do it before the moment is over,".
was his mother's last advice. "For the
rest, Daniel, ask the Lord's help. You'll
find him jnst as near you in Turkey as in
your own home.'
Dan, in the hurry and excitement of
getting under way, aud of his new duties
repeated this advico over and over to
himself. It seemed to keep his mother
near him.
Several days out while he was carrying
the dinner dishes into the cabin he
heard the mate say:
"That boy is clipper enough for a raw
hand, captain."
'Aye," said Captain Payson, turns out
better than I expected. I took him for
his mother s sake. V idow. ' Old friend
of mine."
"ltathcr gentlemanly fellow, this pas
senger, ventured the mate, finding the
Captajn in an unusually talkative mood,
to-day.
He is a gentleman, sir; one of the
Farnalls, of Springfield. Ill health.
Doctor prescribed a long sea voyage for
him. A gentleman and a scholar, Mr.
linggs."
Dan, while waiting on the table at din
ner, could not help noticing the passen
ger.
homo of these days." thought the
true born Yankee lad, "I, too, shall be a
gentleman and a scholar."
Doctor -fr arnalls was a tall, lean man,
carefully dressed, with sandy hair and
mustache, but with eyebrows and lashes
almost white. His eyes, too, were large
and pale. They never met the eyes of
any other man fairly. Once when Dan
happened to look at him he turned quick
ly away, and he glanced suspiciously and
furtively at the boy at times during the
restot the meal.
"Don't like him," thought Dan. "He
looks sneaky and tricky and not like a
gentleman."
But Dan, of course, kopt his opinion
to himself.
Fortunately the lad was not sea-sick.
He learned his new duties quickly; was
alert, neat, and always good-natured. In
course of one week Captain Payson had
twice grunted approval.
Dan worked harder than ever, and be
tween times, when the passenger was on
deck, watched him.
Doctr i arnall talked fluently and bril
liantly, as even Dan's uncultured view
could perceive.
But there were days when the doctor
was absolutely silent, ate nothing and
paced the deck wrapped in profound si
lence.
On one of these days, going down just
at twilight to gel something he had left
in his bunk, Dan saw a tall bgnre which he
did not recognize, with a candle groop-
ng about among the chests of the sailors
below.
"Who's there V( he shouted.
The man came quickly toward him.
The candle threw a yellow glare over his
set face and glaring eyes, it was the pas
senger. He caught Dan by the sloivo.
"Here, boy what do they call you ?"
"Dan."
"You are surprised to see me here.
Dan ?" with a guilty laugh. "Took me
for a ghost?"
1 beg your pardon, air; 1 oughtn t to
have called you. But it took me, aback,
sir." '
'Naturally; bnt you need not be sur
prised at seeing me in any part of the
vessel. I am studying its construction
as a scientific man. Captasn Payson has
been good enough to give me admittance
to all parts of the vessel, ion needn t
shout that way again. It startles a nerv
ous man," and with a vague smile he put
out the candle and went on deck, leaving
Dan staring after him. -
"It's not all right, or why should he,
being a gentleman, make such a long ex
planation to me, being a cabin boy," said
Dan.
That night Captain Payson was alone
on the quarter-deck, when Dan presented
himself before bim and saluted. His
voice shook a little for he was terribly
scared.
"Old Sob" was a bigger man in his
eyes than any king.
. well, wnat s me matter wiui you r
growled the captain.
"The passenger. :
"What have you to do with the passen
ger!"
"I beg your pardon, sir; but aro yon
sure he isn't a thief, or worse ?" gasped
Dan. . - .
The captain seized the rope's end.
"Take that for your impudence,' ha
shouted, aiming a blow at Dan, who
dodged it, and then blurted out the en
tire story. " '"'y-
" Searching among the bunks? Doctor
Farnelir muttered the captain in aston
ishment, dropping his weapon. Then he
walked thoughtfully np and down. Sad
denly he stopped before Dan. :
"ft is well yon came to me and nobody
else, he said. " it s or no account Doc
tor Farnell is an eccentric man. If he
wishes to examine the ship in any part he
is not to be watched or. spied upon. : So
keep your eyes open to yourself aud yonr
tongue, too."
Dan crept off to his work foelinar as if
he bad had a sound drubbings Tears of
rage and mortification stood ia iltt h-A'
eyes. .
but they won't do on shipboard," he
muttered. "But there's something that
needs watching in the man, and I'll watch
him.'
Nothing of moment happened, how
ever, for a week. Then Dan observed
that the passenger's days of depression
and fasting grew more frequent. There
were whole nights when he paced the
deck until morning.
Tho crew joked together about him.
One declared he was a , murderer; an
other that he he had escaped from a lu
natic asylum; but the common opinion
was that he had run away from a termag
nant wife.
"D'ye ye mind," said Irish Jem, how
he eyes every ship we hail as though she
might be aboard ?"
Dan never joined in the gossip below
decks about the mystery. '
One day an incident occurred which
strengthened his suspicion. -
Just before nightfall, when passing the
after hatchway, in the covering of which
was a slide that could be opened and
closed at will, Dan met Dr. Farnell com
ing up, covered with dirt and dust.
There was an unsteady glare in his eyes.
Ho seized Dan by the shoulders.
"Do you know where I have been ?" he
said, hoarsely. ,
"In the lower hold, sir, among the
Boxes."
"What d'ye think is down there, boy
for you and all of us ? Death I Death 1
but tell nobody nobody " He drop
ped his hold and staggered on.
"Mad as a March hare!" muttered
Dan.
But half an hour later Dr. Farnell was
seated at- the supper-table, gay, self-possessed,
keeping tho captain in a roar with
his good stories.
About the middle of the second watch
that night, Dan turned out of his bunk.
The boy was really too anxious to sleep.
"Death in the hold, eh ? Death in the
hold ?" he repeated to himself.
He did not dare go to the captain or
crew with his story. Yet he was sure
some peril was at hand. He sat shiver
ing for awhile, then pulled on his clothes.
"If Death's in the' hold, I'll find him,"
he said.
He groped his way to the after hatch
way unquestioned; for the mate who had
charge of the deck was reclining list
lessly against the rail further aft, where
the hatchway was hid from view by the
cabin.
The slide was open.
His heart beat quick with excitement,
bnt noiseless aa a cat. Dan. creot down
.to the lower deck and groped for the
hatchway that opened into the lower
hold.1
He was so certain that danger was
afoot that he was not startled when he
saw a faint, reddish light, and found the
lower hatchway open.
The hold was not so closely stowed but
what one could move about- it quite
freely, and on lowering himself care
fully, Dan saw the light come from a
lantern, and that it cast a glare directly
upon the face of the passenger, who was
kneeling and working at something upon
the floor.
"So that is the way Death looks, hey ?"
thought Dan. "He couldn't well look
worse," and he eyed the haggard, ghastly
face.
"What grating noise is that?'' he asked
himself; and in the same instant he
sprang forward with a cry of horror.
The passenger had an augur in his
hands, and a saw lay beside him.
He had bored a hold through the side
of the vessel, below the water line, and
the water-was already coming through.
The boy clutched iarneil, and shook
him like a wild beast. "You are sink
ing," he said. "Help ! hel!"
The madman turned upon him, and
nodded. -
"Yes, we'll all go down together. Don't
make that outcry. Nobody can hear
yon.". . . .. . - . . .
He had caught the boy s wrist, and
held him with the unnatural strength of
the insane. .
Nobody could hear him. Dan remem
bered that, and became suddenly silent.
Horror and fear only made thought more
vivid.
Death was just at hand. There was no
body to drive it back but himself,and he
was in this mad man's hold.
He stared into the fierce glassy eyes
with an agony of hesitation.
Farnell laughed back at him.
"I thought of burning, but this is the
quietest. I want to go calmly into the
great hereafter. We shall go together in
a few minutes," glancing at the stream
of water gushing out of the opening.
Oh, mother, motherl ' cried the shiv
ering boy.
"We 11 all go together. Kings among
the ancients went across the river Styx
attended by the slain on their burial, I
will bo followed by the Yankee Captain
and his crew.
A sudden flash lighted Dan's eyes.
"Not by the Captain," he said.
His own voice startled him, it was ho
calm, and in a tone so very different
from any in which he had ever spoken
before.
"The Captain and Mr. Briggs will es
cape!" he cried.
"Why. what do you mean t cried
Farnell "Escape I How can they es
cape?" "Because they are not in the hold.
They will take to the boats."
"1 never thought oi tue Doats. '
Dan felt a chill run over him. He
tried hard to speak, but his voice failed
him. He had but one chance, and he
must try it. :
'I will go and bring the Captain and
Mr. Briggs down, if yon like. Then they
can't get away."
'Ha, hal Pretty good toke. Well, go
bring them, and be quick I" loosening
his hold, and pushing Dan away. ;
Dan walked slowly to the ladder, then
he made one wild spring up.
"To the hold! To the hold! A leakr he
shrieked and fell to the deck. ...
Within another hour, the mad man
was in irons, the leak had been stopped,
and the water was pumped out of the
hold. The danger was past, and all snug
and taut. "
The crew made a hero of Dan. Even
Captain Payson spoke out his heavy
praise. ;
'The lad saw what was to be done and
did it. He had courage, and what is
better, good sense. Who taught you to
use your wits, my boy?"
"Aly mother, sir, said Dan.

"I now have something for a rainy
day," said old Mr. McSnifkin, the
other evening as he entered the room
and greeted his family. "A windfall, a
windfall!" screamed Mrs. McSnifkin, in
an ecstacy of mental paralysis. - "No,
no." he responded quietly, as he drew
bis slippers from under the sofa; "it's an
