Although our early Instructor do their
best to teach us the dllTcrcnco between "sul
Ject" nnd "object," It seems that one Is likely
to becotno confused on that head, even nfter
he Is old enough to "speak" In mectln'." The
following nuocdote, told by a country "char
acter," furnishes ono of many points of inter
est in "Flvo Hundred Dollars:"
Uncle Ceha Dascom was a shoemaker,
nnd ho never went to sea much, only to an
chor his skllT In the narrows abreast of his
houstt, and catch a mess of senp, or to polo a
load of salt bay from Bonqultt Island Dut
ho used to visit Ills married daughter, In Vcr
iiiont, and up there they know ho came from
tho seaboard, nm) tbey used to call biro Capt.
Ilnscom. Boone time when be wns there,
they had n Babboth school concert, ami
nothing would do but Capt Dascom must
talk to the boys, and tell a sea yarn, and
draw a moral.

poor lxy mlodcd his mother, and then got to
tend store and then kept store himself, aud
tho speaker added:
'That poor boy now stands before you."
So Uncle Cephas thought him up a similar
rarn. Ho had uovcr spoken In meeting bo
'oro, and ho hemmed nud hanod somo, but
jot on qulto well while lie was telling about
x certain poor lx)y, who, when ho grow up,
vas out at sea In an open boat, aud saw a
;rcnt swordllsh making for tho boat, and
bound to stave right through bor and sink
her and how this man took nu oar, and
gavo ft a swing and broke tho critter's sword
square o(T, and then Uncle Cephas bo wus a

and waved his arms, aud said:
