Bui it was impnssihio to pet niipry at tho half sober, hulf jolcin;; 'words of the genial old man. "I guess you're about rijrht, grandfather. I guess it was in you mid it isn't in ine." "More's tha pity," said his grandfather, now wholly serious. "Seems to mo this isn't tho kind of a world for n boy to sit bock In nnd just do what he's told lo do nnd nothing further. Why, everything about him seems to bo saying: 'Look about you, you young lubb-'T, nnd see how everything's working with you it you'll only tnken hrxiid in it.

" Grandpa "jVeatlierliy, having said Ills i.ny, <et out with, sturdy Btrides toward hia own farm, a mile distant, Dick was stung more deeply by his words than the old gentleman Imagined. "Come, let's go' on," urged Sum Jones, a lounger'of tho neighborhood. "That was a tiptop gnnii) you spoiled." But Dick turned away from him in ill humor with himself and overy ono else. There -wns.mQCp_truth In what hud been said than IIB liked to~n"cKbtiWlBd5o.—-lie, a boy of 14, had never raised his hand to do it tiling that was not required of him, and thvj requirements had been very moderate. He had attended school through thu school season, doing light work Uio while, and in tho-eum- mer had engaged in tho farm work in tho easy going r style his grandfather had alluded to. "I guess it Is just as ho says," mused Dick as ho carried tho checker" board into tho house. "Thero isn't many u boy about here that doesn't begin to look out for earning a bit by the.. tin,...he !« nu O M M« I nin. Thorn, old checker hoard; I'm -getuiig-too-uwi'uliy- fnnd of you, Vuumay goluto that corner, and stick there, for nil of mo, until I have shown grandfather I'm good for something— if I can." . Dick strolled thoughtfully out into the fields, wondering in what direction ho had better turn his energies. There was plenty of work all about him and ho know well that his father would hlro him nnd, except In tho matter of tho light duties which he always exacted from his sons, would pay him a fair price for his work. "What's all thnt going on over iu Deacon Blaisdell's fallow?" Ho.hod walked until ho had reached tho boundaries of bis father's farm, when his attention was attracted by a wonderful amount of whooping and hallooing a littlo way beyond. -- —-. ----• "It's a drove of cuttle—and a big drove, too. Bud business if they (ret into*tho fallow." . He made his way out to the road, which was now lllled with tho cattle pressing on through tho dust. Deacon Blnisdell's fallow was not fenced, and tho drovers wore making their best effortSito keep tho restless herd from straying among tho logs and bushes. -,. It would be unliko a farmer's boy not to offer his mite 'of help iu such an emergency. Dick took his stand in the thinly manned line, and by dint of persistent shouting and brandishing of branches gave valuable aid. In the course of time tho drove hod passed by, with the exception of one lively steer which had mode its way far Into the fallow. 'Til give you fifty cents if you'll got that critter out for ino," said the drover to Dick. "Hoi that'll do for my nest egg," said Dick to himself. "I'll do it, mister," ho added, aloud. Picking his way among briers and bushes until ho got the steer between himself and the road, by a littlo clever maneuvering and a good deil of. activity,"ho Irefore^loug sue-* ceedvl in sending tho animal trotting after the refit of tho herd, now some distance down the road. And then Dick came, out of breath, up to a wagon driven by one of th« drovers to receive his well earned pay. "Poor thing," ho said, looking at a calf which lay in tho wagon, gasping as if in great suffering. "Is it sick I" "Not so that, as overdriven," said the man. "We hod only u fow such young onej —fact is, I don't hold to taking such, but it is such a likely ono I thought it might worry through. ButI guessitain't got much chance in this hot sun, and I can't wait for it to get shade. Say," ho added, pausing with the half dollar in his hand, "s'pposin 1 you tako it for your pay." "I wonder if It'll live?" said Dick. "Well, I don't say for sure 'twill," said the man. "You will have to tako your chances at that. It's only that if you manage to bring it 'round it's well worth flvo dollars to lie much of tho Ms leisure nnimnl "IT Ms hmid* vnnr- 1 on \vhal h" h.'ul for it.

"Tho vim he's showing, tho steady Mirk to it that it's bringing out of him is worth ft long sight m.oro than tho cnif Is." "Eight you are," raid grandfather. "No, it won't hurt him. Ho get' a littlo time, to tako a game of checkers in the evening, don't hef "Sometimes, when lie doesn't have study," said mother, laughing. "Ho takes too much after you, father, to let tho checkers go." The calf quickly outgrew her cnlfhood, developed into a dainty ytitmg heifer, full of grace and beauty in the eyes of many beside her proud owner and had settled down into tho dignity of a young mntPMi, when one evening Grandfather Weatherby camo over and challenged Dick to n tilt nt checkers. "I'll do it, sir, but you'll l» likely to beat me all hollow," said Dick. "1 haven't played very much this long time." Ho handed tho board to the old gentleman, then stepped up to his room for n moment. Grandfather leisurely set his men find then stood in astonishment as Dick took his beat before tho board. • - ' "What—hey? What's all this?" Dick was also Betting his mpn—not, however, tho red ones that Ubiially played against tho black, but tvvelvo shining gold pieces. He sat back iu his chair and laughed nt the old gentleman's astonished faco before saytog: ."I'm a little older than you were, grandfather; when you sot your board with silver pieces, butns these nn; gold, don't you think I'm about even?" "Ho, ho!" laughed the old man. "He snid he couldn't beat mo; but I nm beat—the worst kind!" . • ' ' "It's tho price of my cow," said Dick. "Sixty dollars, and cheap onoi:;jii nt that, father says.
