THE MODEL FARMER.
BY FRANCIS 5, SMITH, *"Ki» oheek la bronzed, hia eyes ll bright, Ma frame is lithe and strong His hands are hard from honest toil, he has no thought of wrong. He bends the knee to none, he owns no master save his God, And independent walks erect, a monarch of the sod. He lovbs hia wife and little ones, is faithful to his friends, And peace, and joy, and harmony his daily walk attends. Be questions no man's sreed or clime, his con science is his guide, An in his heart-there is no touch of arrogance or pride. Be sings while following the plow, and when the day is o'er, With lightsome heart be speeds along toward his cottage door, Where home delights without compare nuke sweet hia daily life— His little world is made up of his children and his wife. And when at night he seeks repose in sober, sweet content, And gives his Heavenly Father thanks for every bleaeing sent, Down in his inmost heart a quiet satisfaction creeps, To think that his on-coming crops are growing while he sleeps. He's full of heavenly charity for all of human birth, And e'en the stock he daily feeds seem conscious of his worth He is gentle and forbearing, and enactB the Christian's'part, And has room for all who suffer in his great, big royal heart. His clothes are coarse, his language plain, his maimer frank and bluff, He never had much polish, he's a diamond in the rough He has no brilliant pedigree, he's "nature's nobleman Bring forth your pampered titled ones, and match him if you can. LITTLE JACK HORNER. BY MARY KYLE DAUAS. Mr. Jackson Horner—what would lie have said if he had known that now and then irreverent people called liim little Jack Horner!—lived in a very handsome villa in Hornerville, and was the richest man, no doubt, in the whole county. There was a time—not so very long be fore, either—when he had been- no richer than his neighbors, and then he had not, as they said, "taken so many airs." But a lueky contract, not particularly to liis credit when it came to conscience, and a lucky speculation or two added to that had made Jack Horner rich. In the old days, when he lived in the row of frame houses with shops under them, his most intimate friend had been one Jerry Pine, who kept the tinsmith shop next door to him. Many a good turn had Jerry done him many a dollar had he loaned, glad to accommodate a neighbor but Jerry, be" ing generous, had been imposed upon, and Jerry had grown poorer, and since Mr. Horner had gone to live at the villa he had not invited his old friend to see him. Jerry felt the slight. For years they had smoked their pipes together, sitting on the low fences of their little gardens in the evening, or played dominoes when winter nights were long. He still had the old accordion they both used to play on in the boyish days before they were married and they had been confidential over their love affairs. "My Jim was born two years before Jack's Eliza came into this world," the tinsmith would say. "Jack used to swear that his girl should marry my boy, and their mothers talked as if it were to be so. I'd like to see Jack Horner's face up there in the villa, as he calls it, if he was put in mind of that. Riches spoil some men. And yet who doesn't want 'em? I'd like to see my Jim one of the rich ones, I would but he has got to take to his tools, like his daddy*. Jim was quite content. He was a big fellow, with brawny arms and black hair and eyes. And whatever coolness had come between the rich and the poor one, none had come between their children. They had been playmates and Jim's mother died early so that Eliza's mother, feeling pity for the little child wqo had no womankind to watch over him, had had him about the house a good deal after that. -Eliza was very affectionate, and by the time she was 17 and Jim 19, the boy began to know that it was not as a sister that he loved Eliza. He was sorry then for the first time that he had not a fortune to offer her, but he in tended to make one—to hammer it out of the tin, he said, if there was no other way. And he often went up to the Horner villa, never guessing that the mother knew so well what her hus band's feelings on the subject would be, that she never let him see who called They sat in the family room, and Jack Horner knew that Eliza had company in the parlor. Young folks always had company, he supposed and they were in a fine house, and the neighbors' sons, all people who were quite up to his taste, would naturally drop in. "Eliza," he would say to himself, "will marry a big banker or something of that sort one of these days. There's nothing like lifting your family up." However, he himself made no new friends. He asked people to dinner, and went out to dine. They bowed Jind spoke as they met on the cars, re turning to their villas from the city. He was one of the select neighborhood, but there was no one to chat with him over his pipe, or play dominoes, or talk over old times, as there was when he was intimate with Jerry Pine, the tinsmith. The idea that it was Jim Pine in there in the fine parlor, with its carved man tel, and bevelled mirror, and great pilule glass windows, and brand new |tyli furniture, never entered his iuiiid, until one evening, after glancing from the window as the street door '»hnt to, after a rather prolonged good vfcve, he saw him in the moonlight, coolly walking down the graveled path way, bet ween the two broad grass plots. Why, mother, Jim Pine has been to see Eliza," ho cried. The mother had known it must come iinuie day, but now she Xrighteneft. WM very much It "Yes, Jack," she said, braving it out with a smile, "Jim comes pretty often. They've liked each other from children, those two have, and there isn't a finer k-oking fellow that I know of anywhere, oi- a better son and old neighbors, too, Jack—an old friend's son." "Old friends?" said Jack Horner, testily. When a man is poor, he must live near poor folk, and live like them. But we've gone up. If I'd had some women, I'd have had credit for it but you—I begin to think you like low down folk best, Betsy." "No, and I never did," said his wife. "But Jim isn't low down, nor Jerry neither, only poor, poor as honest work ing people are, if that's poverty, and Jim is educated a good deal better than you and I, Jack—just as our Eliza is and there's no reason for you to despise them it was just luck. You might be over there in Wooden Row and he here on the hill if the chance had come to him instead of you." "Ah," said Jack Horner, "the taking of chances makes the difference. You don't do it by letting 'em pass." "I agree to that, Jack," said his wife. "Still, I think Jim is one to take chances. Hii mother was capable— smarter than his father. Come, Jack remember that Eliza needn't look for money." "She's got to have a gentleman, any way," said Jack Horner. "I want her to marry into one of the old families. I ain't going to have a tinker's son coming after her for her money, "-and he banged his fist upon the table furiously, so that a decanter and glasses that stood there danced about and jiugled. He gave his daughter a lecture next morning at the breakfast table, to which she prudently answered very little, un til toward the last Mr. Horner said something about "sneaking into a man's house." "Jim never sneaks," she said. "He walks up to the front door and rings the bell. He sees me in the parlor, just as a man always does when he calls on a girl." "You've kept it from me," said the father. "I never thought it of you." "Pa, dear," said the girl, coming and kneeling beside him. "I never knew a girl to go about telling folks she had a beau but you might have seen him any Sunday night. And now we are talking of it, pa, I will say that if you don't let me marry Jim, I'll never marry any one." "You're likely to die.an old maid, then, Eliza," said Mr. Horner and as he spoke he decided that on Thursday, when he went to Wooden Row to col lect his rents, lie would speak to father and son—men had more sense than wo men. When they saw there was no chance of his money, Jim would drop the thought of marrying Eliza, and then the girl would see that she had only to forget him. "With her chances," the old roan said, "it's doing her no wrong." This was the reason why he was so astonishingly quiet, when the women expected a scene. On Thursday he carried out his plans. He had been collecting a good deal of money, and came after davk to the three houses that were his in Wooden Row. When he had got his rent, he went, for the first time in years, down to the tinsmith's door and looked in. Jerry lifted up his eyes he was read ing the daily paper through his glasses by the light of a little kerosene lamp. "Glad to see you, Horner," he said. "It is a good while since you stopped in. But better late than never. Jim, push up the rocker here. Many a time you've sat in it before. And how is your health, Jack "My health is good enough, and I hope your is," said Horner. "But I won't sit down. What I have to say I can say standing. It is only this: 'I've found out that Jim has been coming over to see Eliza. I didn't know it be fore. Now I want that to stop. If Eliza is a fool I'm not. You under stand, Jim?'" "I understand, anyhow," said Jerry. "Jim is not rich enough for Eliza Hor ner. Where was your pride, to go after a girl whose parents despised poor folks. Jim?" "I never thought of her folks," said Jim. "I like her she likes me^ and that is the whole of it." "Never thought of me, indeed! Not a penny of my money does the girl get if she marries you," said Horner, in a fury. "I don't want a penny of it, sir," said Jim. "I guess I shall make money for myself I mean to try." "At all events, don't come to my house again," said Horner. "Now, Jim. where is your pride?" said Jerry Pine. "All right," said Jim. "I won't come to your house, but I'll see Eliza when ever I can, Mr. Horner. Everything has turned to money with you. You don't seem to remember that there is something else in the world." Furious at this self-assertion on the part of the tinsmith's son, Jack Horner, with his satchel full of those plums that grown folks value—namely, dollars and cents—took his way homeward. He took the lonely shore road as the shortest way, but after a few moments he felt that he had not done wisely. There were dangerous characters about, and he was known to have cash with liim. A certain Apprehension of evil seized him, and the sound of steps behind him made him shiver. A moment more two men came up with him. "Good evening, Mr. Horner," said one. "Good-evening," MID DM rich BUD, hurrying on. "You might as well stop, Jack Hor ner," said the man who had not yet ad dressed him. "We will have to make you, else. We want that little satchel and whatever else you have about you." "You'll not get it," said Horner. He onmrned bis band into bis pistol popk«t and pulled out the weapon he alwaj* carried there. It was wrenched from his hand in a moment. He roared for help the wind seemed to snatch his voice away from him. The next thing he knew his hands and feet were tied, and they were roll ing him over on the sand as they robbed him of watch and chain, diamond pin—all that was upon him. Suddenly he recognized their faces. "Ah! I thought I knew yon, you two rascals!" he said. You're the Barker boys." He could have done no more impru dent thing. "I say, Tom," said one of the men "out therein the quicksand is the place for him. No danger there. Dead men tell no tales." Again Horner roared, but they were carrying him toward the shore. His end had come. He tried to pray. He thought of wife and daughter. Life seemed very sweet to him, and they were going to take it from him. "Heave him he'll sink like a shot just here," said one of them. But his words ended in a howl of ag ony. He fell, dropping Horner's feet. Then the two rascals lay prostrate, and he saw Jim bending over him. "I'll untie you, Mr. Horner," said he. "Dad and I heard you, and guessed what had happened. We brought a couple of bits of iron with us that set tled the hash for those fellows. And now dad will go for the officers, while I stand guard. I don't tlnnk I've quite finished them." "Great heaven, Jim! my life was not worth a penny when you came," said Horner. "They were going to throw me into the quicksands. Old friend," and he turned to Jerry, "you and your boy have saved my life." "Thank God!" said the tinsmith. "I did not think we'd be in time." Why, Eliza, your pa is coming up the path arm in arm with Jerry Pine," said Mrs. Horner, who, anxious about her husband, was looking from the window and in a minute more Eliza saw the sight herself. Jack Horner was very pale, but his eyes had a look in them his wife had hardly seeu since they came from Wooden Row to live in the villa.' "You've been within an inch of losing your father, Eliza," he said to his daughter. "Your Jim and his father saved me. I'd never been home again else. I learned a lesson that minute when I looked death in the face. I— I've thought too much of money lately." "Take her, Jack, if you love each other, and may God bless you both." Then the two old men clasped hands and renewed their friendship. 1.1 FK OV A SHOOT1S STAR. A small body, perhaps as large as a paving-stone or larger—more often, per haps, not as large as a marble—is mov ing round the sun. Just as a mighty planet revolves in an ellipse, so this small object will move round and round in an ellipso, with the sun in the focus. There are at the present moment incon ceivable myriads of such meteors mov ing iu this manner. They are too small and too distant for our telescopes, and we can never see them except under extraordinary circumstances. At the time we see the meteor it is usually moving with enormous velocity, so that it often traverses a distance of more than twenty miles in a seoond of time. Such a velocity is almost impossible near the earth's surface, the resistance of the air would prevent it. Aloft in the emptiness of space there is no air to resist the meteor. It may have been moving round and round the sun for thousands, perhaps for millions, of years without let or liinderance but the supreme moment arrives, and the meteor perishes in a streak of splendor. In the course of its wanderings the body comes near the earth, and within a few hun dred miles of its surface, of course, be gins to' encounter the upper surface of the atmosphere with which the earth is inclosed. To a body moving with the appalling velocity of a meteor a plunge into the atmosphere is usually fatal, Even though the upper layers of air are excessively attenuated, yet they sud denly check the velocity, almost as a rifle bullet would be checked when fired into water. As the meteor rushes through the atmosphere the friction of the air warms its surface. Gradually it becomes red hot, then white hot, and is finally driven off into vapor with a brilliant light, while we on the earth, 100 or 200 miles below, exclaim: "Oh, look, there is a shooting star.—'From the Story of the Heavens. A I N Y A I O A A wonderful railroad is the one which connects the towns of Bedford and Bellevue, Mass. It is nine miles in length, and is probably as unique as any on the globe. The distance is not so astonishing, except when the gauge of ten inches is considered. In the short distance traversed by the pigmy it crosses eleven streams, with bridges from five to thirty-five feet in height. The rails weigh but twenty pounds to the yard, about the size of those used in the mines of Missouri and Illinois. The cars and engines are constructed so as to be very near the ground, insure ing greater safety, The cars are pro vided with single seats on each side oi the aisle. The car itself weighs but four tons, the weight of an ordinary car being twenty to twenty-six tons. The engine, without the tender, weighs seven tons, and runs with two passenger oi freight cars at the rate of twenty miles an hour.
