The poor girls must have had an iincom fortablo time of it with Jack nnd I. It was doubtless a hapiiy day for them when wo were pushed oft' to tho acad emy some twenty miles distant, with the promise that if wo nenaveii ourselves and tho teachers thought anything could lio mado of ns we could tit lor college. "Now, young men, if you go to piny, co pranks and don't attend to your books, you'll walk homo and go to work," father said, as no arovo nwny from tho boamuie-hoiiso. Father was a man of ins word and we coverncd ourselves accordingly, al though wo managed to have somo pretty gay times. At tho end of three years wo had completed our -nr. j'aincr curio down to the exhibition and lis tened complacently while wo shouted forth our lofty aspirations ana our sweeping denunciations against the fool ish world.

One ilav after wo had had a more than usually earnest discussion wo went into I he house nud found father sitting in his ..rm.xlmir unconscious. Ho had lieetl ,wl,li.tilv stricken with tmralysis.

W" all boro our affliction ns well as we could. .Tuck and 1 saw that must look after tlm mill and tin family, and that the umvgeucrnto world must lixik after itself.

To these plan", elaborated" Hit many pages of foolscap, Jack replied with a loconio "Stop your homesick nonsense, and count your bones when you've extra time." Ik-fore tli1! t'.irte months were over I hten'Jlo qmto contented, nnd decided not to go home, "esiiecially if Juck dix-sn't want mo," I thought, feeling a little injured. Bo I did not go home till tho summer v.uiiti"", Jnt'd jlpju -.t't-eil to lie in eiiH'ilt'iit spirits and I went away feeling that he wus having quito the best of it, and that I was being sacrificed on tho nltir of family prldtS Pinro Jack was having so film a time t decided to enjoy my remaining years of martyr dom. As it waa liefore thedays of rapid travel and my long vacation was taken up with study, I was at home Very little. 1 remember thinking every succeeding Vacation that Jack and I resembled each other less and less. II;: was getting to care nothing for good clothes or for go ing among people. He looked Cummtln place and t"kvd like Hit) old men of tho vi!!;tpt "What a difference education mnhes In people," I thought, as Jack laughed at my centnrics'-riht jokes, t cautioned hi'.n iiow nnd then against fostcrinc a love of money for I thought him a bit ;Iose. llo always sent hie money enough to ?'ny tho bills, but there was ncVeir much margin. Tho factory was doing a good business and it seemed to me that I ought to have mor) rpemling money. IMiiiig my last year in collego 1 ho- came very intimate- with a former chum whoso family was staying iu Hanover. Tn short I was interested ill my chum's s!tei Ely chum was studying meili- cuie. lie Had decided 10 spend two years iu Germany. His mother and sister wero going, and ho urged nie to form one of the party. I was easily p.-r sitndcd that nothing but two years tn Germany could ever ninko a successful Jiractitioner of me. I wroto the same to 'nek along with tho request that the necessary funds be provided. Tho an swer came by return mailt "It s hard tunes," lio wrote, "and I cannot get tho money." I was angry. JaeK was carrying ins hoarding a little too far. I sat down and answered his letter in short but P'-reniptory terms. My letters to Jack were all short now. "You nro forgetting," I wrote, "that a part of tho factory belongs to me. Dense send mo tho money soon, ns 1 havo no time to come homo for it. We aro to sail directly after Commence ment." I felt uncomfortable after I had posted the letters, and I Wandered un easily about the streets that evening. A prnyer-mecllhg was going on in ono ot (lie churches as I passed. I turned back md went iu jnst in time for tho last hymn. They wero singing "There is Vht for the weary." I sang too, but I camo out a measuro or two abend nnd so ILsturbcd a gentleman in the next pew that he turned around to look at me. 1 recognized him then. Ho was Mr. Hanson, n former business acquaintance ir my father. After the. services he shook hands, smiling, and asked if I wasn't trying to sing him over tlio .Tor laii a little too fast for a doctor. Then he said ho hoped I was going homo to luck soon for lie needed rest, and, judg ing by my singing, I wnsn t in tin-east 1 weary. Something in his tono alarmed me niid I followed him up the street nsk- inor him (tueatioUB until, alter bodiu hesi tation, ho told mo tho whole story, lie had just returned from the Falls, Jack hail been bleeding at tlio lungs, II. was in a very weak condition, but would not lot mo know until 1 was tnrougii my studios.

"Well, lifter we'd bin thero a while, along comes a squad of tho deacons, who looked pious and resigned like, and said that Timothy ought to tako another wife, a young woman who could bo a daughter to me, and comfort my declin. ing years.

Mr. Stafford attempted to speak nt this juncture, but his wife shut him up with oiio decided look and continued: "lie don't liko to bear what a fool he was among them Mormons. Now, I could havo married tlio long-ueekcd deacon I sisike of a short timo ngo, but Timothy had been, my mainstay and guide for thirty year aud I was satisfied.

Mr. Peters, a somewhat ecccntrio old merchant, stuck np a notice in a window t his store that thero was a "wry wanted, md tho card remained there a great tvhilo before ho got tho lioy ho was after, lohn Simmons, nnd C'hailey Jones, and no or two beside, wero taken lor a fow days, but nono of them stood trinl. Mr. Teton bad a peculiar wy of trying them. Thero was a huge, long box in tho attio full of old nails and screws, nud miscellaneous bits of rusty hardware, and when a now boy camo, the old gen tleman presently found occasion to send him np there to set tho box to rights, nnd judged the finality of tho boy by the way ho managed tho work. All puttered over it moro or lens, but soon gnvo it np in disgu.it, and reported that thero was nothing thero worth saving. At last Crawford Mills was hired. Ua knew nono of the other Ixiys, nnd so did his errands in blissful iguornnco of tho "long box" nntil the second morning of his stay, when iu a leisuro hour he was ' nt to put it in order. The morning passed, dinner-time came, nnd still Craw ford hnd not nppenred from tho attic. At hist Mr. Teters culled him. "Got through ?" "Jfo, Bir; there is ever so much moro to dll.'' "All right; it is dinner-time now; you may go buck to it nfter dinner." After dinner back ho went; nil tho short afternoon he was not heard from, but just as Mr. Peters was deciding to c ill him again, ho npeareil. "I vo done my best, sir, ho said, "and down nt tlie very bottom of tlm box I found this." "This" was a live (1- I'ar gold piece. "That's a queer place for gold," said Mr. Peters. "It's good yoit found it; w ell, sir, I suppose yon will bo on hand to-morrow morning?" This ho said, putting tho gold-piece in his pocket book. After Crawford had said good-night and gone, Mr. Peters t'Hik the lantern and went slowly up the attio stairs. There was the long deep box in which the rubbish of twenty-five years had gathered, Crawford had evidently been lo thu bottom of it; he had fitted in p:eees of shingle to make compartments, and in tlio diftcrent tills ho had placed Hie articles witli bits of shinglo laid on lop labelled thus : " O.mhI screws."

But Mr. Peters, ns he read the labels, laughed nnd said, "If we aro not both mistaken, I 1 avo found a boy, and he has found a f ii i une. Sure enor.gh, the sign disappeared fiom tlie window aud was seen no more. Crawford became tho well-known errand-boy of the firm of Peters k Co. lie had a little room neatly fitted up, next to tlio attic, where ho spent his evenings, and at the foot of the bed hung n motto which Mr. Peters gave him. "It tells your fortuno for you, don't fo;--m.i If." he said when he handed it to f Crawford; nud the boy laughed and read it curiously, "lie that is laithlul in mat which is least, is faithful ulso in much." All this happened years ago. Craw ford MiHs iH nn errand boy no moro, but the firm is Peters, Mills & Co., a young nian and a rich man. A Philadelphia Hero.
