'^t^.¥-^ ** I; H lived tii 'a 1 little cottage at fcrixtofi, sttttated in a lane behind the broad highway, At that tittle there were Ihree of us; Beecroft, Mavifterj Mary fi6cci'of-t f his wife; antl i, Amos, their sen, Brljctoii then was not what Mrixton is how; there was more country '"' „_ 11*1.1,, nnrl ti-noa tllOUEn about, more Aelds and trees, though Hln'ci of habitation tl.o bottom of the e are pretty bits to be found there mlav if vou search for them. The old ottage stands there still, mellowed by ee and prettier by contrast with its newer fellows that have grown round bout it; but Beecroft, Mariner's, ( . h ecry "Yo, heave, ho!" is no longer heard within or Without Us walls. For , sufficient reason: ho rests in another • •. . .,,_,,-,. jjj s bones lie at Atlantic. But I, \mos~BeVcroft, live there at this day, surrounded by memorials of Beocroft, Mariner's, love. Now, if you want me to describe our cottage, and to describe it brlelly, 1 can do BO in ono word: Shells. It seemct 1 10 be built almost entirely of shells they met you whichever way yoi turne* whichever, way you looked Mxmt the mantelpiece, on the walls in the center of the ceiling (from whicl sometimes ono would drop down with a bang), ill frames, under glass shades and skirting my mother's work-bo?, and the looking-glass in her bedroom. Even the tiny plot of ground in front of our cottage—the little plot of garden that was cut off from the footpath by green wooden palings and a green wooden gate—even that was decorated with them. The sheila that met your <ive' in qyery corner of the cottage hau lic'en'gathered north, aouth, oast, and west of the globe; and, s6 that there west, of the globe; and, so that there mere suggestion of my father's death. In a certain Way ho had his Wish, hough the pattern of his grave was dif- ereflt, and his coffin a inore spacious he than was meant in his expression, ie died When 1 Was 7 years of age. On a dark night, during a sudden and 'aging storm, while helping to reef the maintopgallant sail, he lost his hold, and slipped into the grave of the At- aiitlc. As the wild waves received and closed over him, blotting him out of the workl forever and ever, perhaps a vision tfttne upon him of his Wife and child in their little cottage at Brlxton, brightened by the mementos of his love; and perhaps, in the midst of his brief agony, it brought a spark of comfort to him. I was ;i sailor before my father's death, and the manner of his death did not frighten me. It was a proper sailor's death, 1 thought in my childish way, and I was proud of my father for dying it, and proud of myself for being such a sailor's son. Sometimes of a night, when I was abed, I would put a shell to my ear, and, with my eyes closed, I would see my father floating down to the bottom of the sea, where he would lie with a cheery and smiling face, amoijg beautiful sea-weed and coral and snells of pearl. I never in these fancies saw him with any but n cheerful and smiling face. Really, I had been a sailor in my heart from my cradle upward. I do not know whether this camo from innate love or from education; but I do know that, whether I was bred or born to it, 1 loved the sen with a deep and passionate love. Never have I forgotten the llrst time I saw it. It stretched before me calm and vast, and over the water line in the distance lay the wonders which I should one day see. They were hidden from me now, but the time would come. I was silqnt from joy. That is he world, thought I—my world, should bo no mistake as to whoso resilience it was, "Beecroft, Mariner," \vus woven outside in shells from various uhores, directly above the low window which looked into our little front parlor. It may be well understood, therefore, that Beecroft, Mariner's, cottage was pretty well known round about. It ' served, indeed, as a kind of landmark in the neighborhood, and my father, as I understand, was looked upon as a character. Not by any means as an objectionable character, for everybody liad a smile for him, for the simple reason, I expect, that he himself had a smile and a good word for everybody. It was my greatest delight, as a youngster, to walk by his side through the Urixtqn streets, with my little hand in his big one/and to imitate liis walk, the roll of his body, and the very expression ou his face, to let ihe people know that I was Beecroft, Mariner's, son. His shells were my delight as a lioy; and on some of the few evenings in tho year he spent at home with us he would take mo between his'knees and tell mo stories of the sen In connection with these pets of his. "You, see, my son," he said—he always addressed mo thus, and occasionally my mother took after him—"you see, my sou, when I an.', away your mother can't help but think of me. And why? Because of these shells. She puts one of 'em to her ear, and she says, 'Now I'm on the sea with Bee- «roft, Mariner, the father of my boy,' She follows me about to different ]ilaces; !: that!s-ho,w it is. And shells •have different • voices. They tell you almost everything about the sea you'd like to know. Listen to this," and' he put a shell to my ear, "Can't you hear a storm brewing? 'And here's the wind howling through a pitch-black night; and hero's n mermaid singing; and Tiero's the, soft flapping of the sails as we lay becalmed, praying for a breeze; and here—shut your eyes, my son— here we are surrounded by great white ghosts—Icebergs, my son, with sea- voices all about us." I liaened in a kind of rapture to such utterances as these, and saw and heard in the shells all that my father described with rough and eloquent tongue. If he could have found and brought homo a shell large enough for us all to live in, I believe ho would liave been tho happfest man alivo.

"A fine evening," Was his nefct observation. it. happened not to be a fltte evening; and I remarked that he talked like a barber, tto accepted my correction good humoredly. "Not being a sailor," said he, "I don't know the signs of the Weather as well as you." "You know when It rains, 1 suppose," I said, with a wave of my hand, for n slight mist was falling. "Ah, yes, indeed," he replied, in a tone of surprise, looking up as though he were only now aware of the falling mist. "You have been a long time away." I had been absent on a long voyage, and had been home but a few days. I nodded, "Yes, a long time," and would have left him,, but that he seemed to have something,more he wished to say. "You have been to Africa, I hear?" "Yes, to Africa, and other coasts." "I've read," said he, "that gold is dug up there by the savages." "That's so." "And feathers, worth their weight in gold?" "I don't know about their value. Feathers are got there." • "And pearls in other places, and coral?" "That's so." "And you've been to those places." "Ay." His bright eyes that had no softness in them gleamed still more brightly and eagerly, but still it was in a hesitating tone—as though he were suspicious I should take advantage of him—that he continued his questioning:' "Have you got any?" asked he. "Any what?" "Feathers and bits of coral and that like." I laughed at him. I've enough to do," said I, "without bothering my head about such things.

CHAPTER II. T is not to be won- acred at that I had such ideas, for my inclination for the was fostered and encouraged in every conceivable way. I was the sailor pet of the neighborhood, and from the time 1 remembered myself I was alvyays dressed sailor fashion. I haven't the slightest doubt, judging from the impressions I gathered, that the children in the neighborhood regarded me as something particularly marvelous, and that no high-admiral, how- over fine and grand his cocked hat and sword and gold laced clothes might be, would have held a higher position in their estimation than young Amos Beecroft. I could "Out of your roach!" ho repeated. "Ay. It takes money to buy them." Ho chuckled, and rubbed his hands. "And you've no money?" "Not more than I know what to do with. Have you?" At this question of mine ho gave his body such a remarkable screw, that it appeared to me as though all in ono moment ho was buttoning himself up from top to toe. "I've got a little," said he, with a slow twisting of his fingers, "and I'm fond of turning it over—turning it over." ,. "Well," said I, with another laugh, "turn it over." "In trade, I moan. I'd like to buy some of them pearls and feathers and- coral." "Easily enough done if you're so flush of money. Go out there." "I can't spare the time.

The team was accompanied by the members of Mr. Fouta' family, consisting of his mother, Mrs. Miriam C. Foutz, and his brothers and sisters. At the grave Mr. By me made an address, in which he eulogized the life of Mr. Foutz, and said he had known him for a long time as a quiet, honest and conscientious man, and one of the greatest ball players the country has produced. During the delivery of the address the players and the family stood around the, grave With bowed heads, after which each of the players placed: a v bouquet of roses upon the grave, completely covering it. In speaking of the affair afterward Mr. Byrne said: "Our visit to the grave of Dave Foutz was an impressive one, and had ah elevating effect on the minds of the players. During the informal services there were tears in the eyes of many of the men, the simplicity of the ceremonies and the evident regard that the Brooklyn club had for its employes appealing to their better natures. We had twenty bouquets, all different in color and design, and each of us placed one upon the grave. Afterward Mrs. Foutz. the venerable mother of the deceased, thanked us and the Brooklyn club for the respect shown to her son, and said that she would never forgot it. : The players later spoke of similar services at the resting places of Hub Collins and Darby O'Brien, and expressed the sentiment that the Brooklyn club never forgot an employe who had served the club. That tiight Mr. Barnie and myself visited the Baltimore-lodge of Elks', of which, by the''way, Mr. Barnic was at one time exalted ruler, and inspected a handsome set of resolutions presented to that body by the Brooklyn lodge as a mark of appreciation for its participation in the funeral of Da,ve B'outz. These resolutions, which are handsomely framed.were presented last week." This was altogether a most appropriate and impressive tribute to the memory of a good man, and reemphasizes the fact that the Brooklyn club is the one League organization that never forgets its worthy friends t.nd employes. «rs that wh§ft baitttig, basii fftflhlfti afid ttih gettifaS affe considered overshadow tilt eefcter fielder ol tiie Slmofcy City fcrew.

How I came there I do not know; but there I was, a spectator of the scene. It was a violent crowd, and loud and angry words were being used, The people were gathered about an open street door, and from what I could understand with my childish mind, a family were being turned out of their house in consequence of owing some money which they were unable to pay. Their furniture had been seized and sold, and they were being bundled into the streets, The sympathies of the crowd were with them, as is invariably the case on such occasions, crowds being always composed of poor people; and oaths and threats were flung at the man to whom the money was owing, and who had in this way enforced his claim. I heard liis name. It was Druce. Presently the crowd divided, and by some means I was in the center of it, standing by the two men who played the principal parts. The face of one of these men was white and pinched and livid, as though with fear and malice; tho face of the other \Yfls convulsed with passion, and blood was trickling down it. Instinotively, child as 1 was I knew which was tho wronged man ' and which the wronger, aiul their faces became indelibly stamped upon my memory.

Anson, a big, rawboned, loose- iointed fellow, was playing second, and his father in center. One of my first recollections of the captain was seeing him at a time when one of our men lined a hit over center. Young Anson was yelling: "Go it, dad, got that ball; and his dad was shagging the best he oould, but he couldn't connect. I remember I hit the old gentleman with a ball, It was entlroiy.,accidental.
