Bennie Wutern gnu-pat daylight that morning to bit Id the fire nntl warm the room tor his molher, who wus not strong and found the keen mr of the euily fpriiig »o trying in their rudely built cubin, u few miles out on the plains, from tho village, All the time bo vtua about this labor of love, ho wan thinking of tie fortunate opening likely to bo his thnt d.iy. He hud been touching for nouielhing to do in the village, for matters were getting serious in their htlle home. The mother bud been KICK so long, nnd their expen os had been so heavy, that the littlo tbey hod saved ugniimfc u time of need was now completely gone. Next to nothing re muinedfor Ihem to live upon, and, it po* •ible, he must fiud work of toino kind to keep actual witiit from the door. So for two or three days previous to this morning he bud been looking for work, bat without success. He win either to young or not strong enough, or they hnd no work for a boy, and he hud become well-nigh discouraged The evening bo fore, however.just us ho was about to give up trying further for that day, he Lad stepped into [he sloro or field & Swinburne, hardware dealers, and asked if tbey needed a boy. lie was shown into the ollice, whero he found Mr. Swinbuinc alone. Tuut gentleman, niter making romo in' quiries as to Bennte's age, and where he lived, said: "Yes, we do need a boy; but Mr. Field is now cut of town. You may come to morrow, however at nine o'clock, aud we will so? what can b ,j done for you. Mind now, aud bu on time, us we shall liiro tho first boy thatcaiuuH along." "What wages would yon bo apt to ptty'f ' lienuic ventured to ask. "Oh! two or thrco dollars a week," un swered Mr. Swinbnrn, carekssly. "It depends itltogtlher ou how well yc work." So 13ennio built the firo, and busied himself in cooking tho potatoes—all that they hnd for hicuhfiiht— liti;j>y at the pros pectbefore bitn. and sure ibut lie would do bis best to earn I he highest wages suggested. On that aiiiutiul lie felt coi:lident ji mother and liiinselt could, with proper .11 (live ci mturtably until she was able to work again. The ur ukfasl—if n dish of potatoes can bo culled breakfast—onco ready, hn went to the door ot his mother's room and called her. "Only think mother," he exclaimed, us they sul down at the table. I'm to have work to-tla) j and if I'm worth it, I'm to have threu dollars a week, and that'll bo enough for us lolive ou." "Yes, indeed! ' responded his mother. "Hut 1 feur you mo too young lo uud.r- take so much; above all, to take your long walk nfler each days work." "Oh, 1 can stand it easily enough, mother," heusserted, confidently. When the poor little meal wiu finished, he brought in several huge itruifuls of wood, und urrnnged, as far us uosnibl?, for his mother's ecfiuoit throughout the day, ana then put on his coat und start' cd. "Here IB jour scaif, fiennie," said his mother, culling hnn buck. "It may be chilly as jou walk homo to-night, and you will need it " He laughingly took it, tot realizing then how it would be of bptciul teivice to .him an hour later. It was not yet eight o'clock, and he had ample time to reach tho villugo before the oppoiuted hour, The m st direct way was down the railroad truck; and he hurridly tripped over the ties, us happy as u boy tould well be. Wiiluu a mile of the villnee tho track made a shuip turn to the right, and entered what was known as Henwny'B cut, where tho roud-bed had been blasted through solid rock for u number of rods. As Bennie reached the cuive, he, us a precaution, glanced buck along the track to be sure tho 8:45 passenger train was no where in sight, and then entered the cutaway. S\ lita about half way through, however, he suddenly stopped, for in tront of him lay a largo boulder, which had fallen trow, the clitl above, and completely blocked the pussuge. But it was potsiulo to clamber over it, tuid Hcnuiu begun to do so. Then be na quickly got down again, the thought rad come to him that tho train, No. 27, ^coming around the curve at lull speed, would not have time to come to a lull stop before reaching the obstruction, aud a smash up ntoie or less terrible in its re- BUIIB, was inevitable, unlets tome one gave the warning. Hut if ho waited to warn the train of the duuger, he would not reach the village ut tho appointed hour and might lose the place. Indeed, Mr. Swinburne said if ho was not there ou time they should hire some other boy, There was not time enough to go on to the vitiligo nnd have tome ane sent to ll.ig I'- 1 train, ut khst it would be a treuieti (lout) risk to do so. The tiisi house back up tho track wau a full mile away and to go there and leave word to slop the tiain would also make him lute at the sloro For a moment ho hesitated. More than thisj he actually lett the cutaway and went u short distance- up over (he chtt toward tho highway. Then)hu came hack to the track aud with quivering lip sat down. He knew it was his duty whatever his personal biicrilico to htuy thore uud w urn the train. "i cun't leave here," he resolutely said, "oven it 1 do not get woik and wo have to beg." The train was lute that morning nnd for nearly an hour he bat theie. He knew it must bo ulrtmily nine o'clock, aud he woudored it BOM" other boy had been hired to fill the place he bud only an" hour before been suture ot. In spit© ol hini8t>ll,the great tears, would coaio to his •syeB, The low rumbling of (ho train at last roused him trow the despair into which bo wus last t tiling. Springing to his feet he TOolnioieri: "I with 1 bad a red Hag, an' I'd stop the train easy enough,," •, , Then his oye tell on his scarf, It was large, and of ii bright red color. The • • nfixi'moment be had cut tt long stink and st etched his scarf lo its widest oapsoilj over one end, forming a wide Hup He now hurried down the (rack toward the coming tr.iiii, iiiuvuitf the bturl , to HIIH tro as he hud kfitu sceu the AM mwdoi ••"••"' s uJtVtume tbdttului now it was neai enqugh lur (bu engmar tQ pli^lul) see biiu crowd of passengers hurried into the cut- way, nnd a moment later stood by the boulder. "Itis a big morning 's work you have done, tnv lad," the c-mductor at length said. "Und we come round that curve and stove fullforco into that rock, there would teen terrible work here. How camo you to discover it?" So Hennio briifly told his story. "I was going to work for Field & Swin burne d >wn at Scottvill this morning nt nine o'clock, and left our cabin back hore a couple of miles to go there. When I got here I saw the reck and 1 knew I ought to stn; to give you warning. Though I «'po;e I have loBt my place by it,'' he added re gretlully. "How is thai V" asked a tall Qncly dreEs ed g"ntleman, standing by. "Why. Mr. Swinburne sni-J I was to be there in time," answered Hennio, "or elso they sbould hire some other boy." 'lho conductor now decided thnt, with enough men and proper too's, the obstruction could bo removed in tin hour or twj at the furthered, nnd disp itched a messen- gtr to the village for Ihem. He nho at'- vised th> pasaengcrj to return to the ears, and make themselves ns comfortable as possible during the delay. Then a gentleman spoke up enthmi asticullv. Let ns make up a purse for the lad Hero are five dollars towards it." A hut was passed among the passengers and a few minutes later the gentlemen nn nounred: We have got u huMred dollars. Now where is I he boy?" IIo could not bo found; but a brakeman finitll) s,iid: I tow him go (IT towards the village with the man the conductor sent aown there." He'll be back this wuy by and by, likely as not," said the conductor. "II not, it can be lef; at tho Scottsvillo depot for him." Itwas truo Bennio bnstened off to the store before some one eWe was encaged Hut in this he WHS disappointed. For, as ho entered Mr. Swinburne 's ifliia that gentleman looked up at him and curtly said: You are too lute, sir; I engaged another lad half un hour ago. Learn next time to be punctual nt the uppointed hour." Poor Bennie! Without offering a word of explanat on, he left the store and bur ried off homo. He bad no heart to look elsewhere for work that day nt IcaBt. He know be had done right, that his mot he would approve of his course. Still be could not get over the great disappoint ment that had come to him. whit in the world should they do now for bread As he reac ed the cutaway, he found the men busily blasting tho boulder lo pieces and pnus'ed to watch them. Wbi>e he stood there, theconduu'.or caught sight of him. "Liok hero, youngster," he said "aren't you tho boy that stopped the trainV "YOB, sir," promptly responded Bennie, "Weh," ho went on, "there is a gentle nt'in un at the cars that wishes to see you. Wondering what could be wanted him Uennio went up to the train, clumber ed into the parlor enr and asked: "Is there u man hern who wants 'o ,ueV" 4>Ycs, sir," exclaimed a gentleman dropping his paper aud springing to feet.' We all want to see you. Wo want thank you for your unsollMi conduct III morning, nnd give you this roll of bills a token of o r appreciation of your net. And he handed Uennie DIP money. "1 didn't, expect nothing," said Bjnnio. modestly nnd ungrammatically. "1 didn't just, like to see the train b isted." "We cm well afforJ to give this money to jou," replied tun gentltmian, kindly; for some of us would have dojbtless lost, our lives but for you, and had the overturned curs taken lire in thatctit, none of us enuld have escaped." With joyful hoart Bennie now hastened hoihe. Nor wus his joy tiny less when his mother, after listcnit g to his story, said • "I would rather a sen of mino should do his duty, even if it forced us to beg, than to have secured tho best position by u dishonorable net." But the good llowing forth from Bennit's umelh.ib act did not end here. The very next morning, aB lie was cutting wood nt the door, a gentleman rodo up and asked,— "Are y u Bennie Wnters?" "Yes, sir," replied the astonished boy. "Well, here's a letter 1 was asked to leave here," said the man handing it to him. It bore the heading of "Field & Swin' burne," and read;— SCOTTSVIIXE, KT. Mr. Bennie Waters:-Dear Sir,—Mr, Field nt (he firm *UB upon the train you so bravely warned of its danger yetterday, regardless of your loss. AVe have decided that we have a place in our store for boy like you; and we will furnish your moth'tr a tenement in the village, rent free, and allow you at first five dollars a week. 1 trust you will be magnanimous enough to overlook my unpardonable curtness of yesterday; for, bad you explained tho cause of your delay, wo should have hired you then and there. At your earliest convenience let us know your decision. Resprclfully your?. GEORGE A. SWINBUHN. Firm of Field & Swin burn.

One of the wajs which you can help to make ycur stock-keeping profitttblo this winter will be to hold over no moro nni nials than you can profitably and comfort ably shelter.

It iB now time to look out for (he small vermin that annoy tho fowls and larger stock and if not prevented will keep them in poor condition nil through the winter.

To keep a supply of ihiB odorous vegetable ou hand for this use is desirable If tho water in which they huve been boiled is used to sponge the animals with and it is well brushed intj the coat tbe lice will leave and stay away. Gtod Care. Good care is even more of a factor in making the dairy profitable than is good feed. The good care costs so little more than poor care thnt tbe results go almost wholly to the profit account. Grooming, so ns to keep the skin clean and free from all accumultions of filth, and fresh, clean, dry bedding, will help increase tho quun tity and the quantity of the milk every lime. No roan will keep right who does decide that ho will always do right. No man ought to have a better place who is not faithful in his present one.

II Jen that one per uii ^.softj^.U't^m^ift^'y Ate, Value of Children. It is strange that so tnuuy men and w( m 'n are destitute of a due appreciation of cbildbood. It has been but a short ti 1110 since tbey were children, and yet tbey *eeni to have lost ail sympatby with tbe life of childhood, and outside of ibeir own households they scarcely notice or cure for a child. Tbe most exulted pleasures may he found in associating with chit- aren, and the most vuluuble improvement may hi derived from a frequent study of their characters and experiences. If the Icvliness of heaven is reflected anywhere on earth, it iB in tbe life of the child into whose mind no impure thought has yet entered. The affection which fids one with dUgost when he wilnesies the movements of men and women in society ia unknown to the child; the arts by which grown neople attempt to deceive tbeir neighbors and win admirers never enter the mind of the innocent child. Of tbo vice) which blacken and blast so many older souls they a,e lo tally ignorant, and tboir unperverted minds are open to receive every lesson ot goodness and every impression of love. To escape from the hollow pretense of social lile, tbe suBpiuoue gazo of the busy world, the crooked ways of business and the dark schemes of political strife to tbe artless, honest, sincere and pure oompansionship of children, is like passing from the chill) blasts of December into the genial atmosphere of June. It would be well both for the children and adults if they mingled more together than ^he customs of I advanced civilization sanction. Tlu (MIIMI MrdlcUut* (»« World U ersWNf DR.

These are so much alike, even as adulla, thnt it is sometimea dimoidt to separate the species, Tbe potatoes being planted on sod ground is, iu all prohibit ity, the main reason for (heir being so infested, but it is a little s range lhat tbey should be so muoh worse at one end than the oih'r, and it looks as if there might possibly be some traveling from lho pasture Und into the potato field, How much then giubs are, capable ol traveling do opt know, but it has gen> eraily been assumed t>4t Was do not go far P^tys&mmmmmilwik PI (be *J H vm lnduimaClw itdulii to depout. i gff* mort Mti Ihe south eud of tbe fleli U-* (pie tbji |od «to> tuviu^ TUB KITCOKN.
