STRIKE AT ELM HOLLOW.

of a warm

manly young follow, Joe Jatnieson by
name, was a favorite in my uncle's
family, aud always acknowledged a
great iiidebtednossto my cousins Rob
ert and ildward for his start in life.
I had seen Janueson so often and
heard his name spoken with so much
consideration, that I was curious to
know the story or his life. To-night,
in reply to my questions Cousin Ned
gave me this account of it.
"Five years nno this summer, we
had our great Kim Hollow strike. 1
suppose you never saw a report of
that in the papers?"
"No I replied, "What the world
could any one find to strike about in
this out-of-the way place?"
"It was a school strike," said Ned.
"We had an excellent teachor that
summer, and as there were no more
than thirty scholars, we had a chance
to do some pretty good work.
'Our teacher, Miss Ward, had
taught the school for a year and we
thought there was no one iike her.
fclie took a great deal of pains, and
helped us in every wsy she could.
"Our class, the first one, was com
posted of five boys. We were doinff
well in our studies, but we were noc
wise enough to appreciate it.
We were studying history and civil
government, and Miss Ward encour
aged us to read the newspapers and
keep informed about public events.
She would take a few minutes occa
sionally to ask us questions about
what we had read, and explain mat
ters we did not understand. In this
way we learned a great deal about
what was happening in the world.
"That summer the papers were full
of accounts of strikes in one place,
and lockouts in another, with work
men combining ngainut employers,
and employers against workmen.
"pne day, after eating our lunch,
the boys of our class were all lying on
the grass, discussing the latest news
about the strikes.
"'I say, follows,' said Harry Rog
ers, 'here we are shut up by ourselves
in this little-out-of-the-way place,
where nothing ever happens to 'liven
a fellow up. Let's do something the
way they do it in the vest of the
world. Let's have a strike!"
"'What are you going to Btrike
about?" asked Fred Andrews.
"0h, we'll put in a petition,' said
Harry, 'and it it isn't granted, we'll
march out in a body. Unit's the way
they always do.'
"What shall we petition for?"
'"Oh, longer nooning, for one
"'And to have school dismissed
earlier,' said another boy.
'"And for shorter algebra lessons,
this warm weather,' said anoth
er. '.'That afternoon Jack Bums wrote
out the petition,' and each one signed
it. I don't renumber all our demands,
but we wanted the morning recess
lengthened to half an hour, the noon
ing to an hour and a half, and tho
day's session shortened by half an
hour. We gavo up the nfternoon's re
cess. So much for hours.
"In regard to work, in warm weath
er the lessons were to bo shortened,
and algebra never to exceed five prob
lems; and we were to be allowed to
studv out of doors when we wished
"The paper closed with the state
ment that it our requests were not all
granted by Thursday that day was
Tuesday we should leave school in a
berfly. It was important, that wo
should go out 'in a body.' That
phrase always occurred in the reports
" e knew that tho trustees, as well
as our parents, were not aliltleproud
of their first clnss, and we thought,
that, in their anxietv to keep us in
the school, they would do almost any
thing we might ask. It was therefore,
with a good deal of confidence, that,
after school, we handed tho paper to
Miss Ward. She merely bowed, and
laid it on her desk without looking at
If.. Nothing remained for us but to
fa e out. 4
"All the next day we were in a fever
of excitement, but Miss Ward said
nothing, though when wo had our 'his
tory talk' she spoke of a strike that
hart been especially disastrous to the
strikers. Their employers had refused
to take them back, and their families
wer in want.
'Thursday morning just before
school wascalled, we asked Miss Ward
if our demands were to be granted.
She replied that, having no authority
herself to change the hours, she had
sent our petition to the trustees, and
as she had heard nothing from them,
the school would go on as usual.
"I'erhaps the trustees might come
during the morning. We gave them
the benefit of the doubt and decided
to stay until recess.
"Recess came, but no trustees, We
went to Miss Ward and told her that,
while we had nothing against her, we
must leave the school, as the trustees
had not acceded tvour demands. She
talked to us, tried to convince us that
, we were taking a very foolish stent
but when the bell rang, we did not go
"We had been lying on the grass just
across the road, for a time, joking
and telling stories" when I noticed
that Jack was looking at the school
house in a wistful way, and was not
listening to the talk.
" 'Sorry you struck, Jack?" I asked
t " 'Yes,' he said, springing to his feet
'I am! I know it seems mean for me to
fi against you boys, especially when
wrote the petition, but X believe
we'd better give it up and go back to
school. I'm sorry, boys, but I'm go
inn back, anvhow.' ,

'treachery' made me angry. I am
afraid I spoke pretty harshly to him,
and so did the other boys; but he
"There were only four of us now,
but we agreed to 'stick it out.'
"The next morning Bob and I made
no movement toward getting ready
to go to school after breakfast.
" 'Aren't you going to school, boys?'
"'No, sir,' I said. 'We are out on

to think Jack has as much spunk as
any of you. Ha certainly lias more

Fred and Harry, and we nil decided
not to speak to Jack. root Jack:
He felt pretty soro when we passed
him that day without pnying any
attention to him, though ho tried
hard not to show it. It was a little
hard, too, to crush him in that way,
but we felt that it had to be uoue,
"Well, Monday morning came, and
that's where Joe Jamieson's part of
the story begins. Joe's parents had
been verv poor and had never got
ahead in the world. They died when
Joe was very young oyid left him to
take care of himself.
He wasn very strong, but he had
grit, and that helped him. He worked
around for different farmers, and
though there was some talk at first of
sending him to tho poorhouse, when
he showed that he could take care of
himself they let him do so.
'He had been working two years for
father, and was a great overgrown,
awkward fellow, but a steady work
man and always so good natured that
we all liked him.
"That morning, at tho breakfast
table, father asked:
" 'Is the striko still "on," boys?'
" 'Yes, sir,' we both answered ery

" 'Joe, ho said, how would you like
to go to school?"
"Joo started, grinned and looked
greener than ever, but said nothing.
He thought father was making a joke
at his expense; and Rob and I thought
so, too, and wore considerably amus
ed until he went on.
" 'Well!" father continued, when
you finish your breakfast, Joe, you
can change your clothes and get ready
'You ought to have seen Joe then!
If he wasn't surprised I nevfr saw
anyone who was.

do the work that you might have
time for something else. In return I
have asked that you nttend school
and do the best you can in your
studies. Now you refuse to do that
any longer. If Joe, here, is willing to
go to school and do what I expected
you to do, why, I'm willing to give
him tho chance. Turn nbout is fair
play, and I shall expect you and Ned,
between yon, to do tho work.
" 'Remember,' ho continued, 'I have
let you make your own rho'ce in this
matter of the strike, and haven't tried
to coerce you. Miss Ward reasoned
with you, and did her best to make
you see how foolish your act was, but
you refused to listen.
'Now there is no more to be snid
about it, one way or tho other. The
matter is settled.
"'I think you are both old enough
to use your own judgment, so I havo
let you follow your own course. But
now, if lam to support you longer,
and you refuse to repay nie in the way
I wish, it's only fair you should make
some other return.'
"By that time there was a big lump
in my throat, and I wished the strike
had never beeu thought of. I guess
Rob did, too, for he was staring hard
at his plate.
"I looked at mother, but she said
"After breakfast Kob and 1 went
upstairs, put on our old clothes with
out a word, and went out to work.
In addition to Joe, father kept an
other man. so the hardest of the labor
did not fall to us, though what did
was quite hard enough to niako the
ilays seem very long.
Joe had his share ot discomfort,
too; shut up indoors all day, and
obliged to be in classes with much
oungcr children, ltesidcs all this, lie
had never learned to apply himself,
and for a while he made but little
"However, as time went on he im
proved. Miss Ward was very kind to
him, and he was determined to sue
ceed, if only 'to please Mr. How.
At first Joe was ashamed to come
to Rob and mo for help in his studies,
but before long Rob offered to assist
him. After that we both took a hand,
and he improved fast. All this time he
helped us with the farm work at night
and in the morning.
Those were very long davs that
wo spent at the larm worK. uur
hands were made sore with pitchforks,
and our legs ached pitifully every
night. e began to talk in a furtive,
hnlf-oshamed way at first, and then
openly of surrendering.
'Wo had been working about two
weeks when we went to father one
evening and told him that we should
like to go back to school.
'oat how about Joe 7 he asked ab
ruptly and in surprise.
"We had not thought about the in
justice of taking Joe out of school
now. we said no more.
We did a good deal of thinking in
those days, however. We wondered
at hrst why Harry uogers didn't come
to see us: but one day we heard that
Harry's father had set him at work
on the farm too.
"Jack kept right on at school, but
now he avoided us so as not to give
us another chance to snub mm

would not have blamed him if be were

was, and dian't st ne till I drove
along beside him. Then he looked up.

"All right,' said he, and climbed in.
"It didn't take us very long to make

used to come often and see us and
would help us with our books, for we
were trying to study when we had
"When the school term ended Joe
worked on the farm again. Mis Ward
was to be married in the autumn, and
although the trustees urged her to
remain, she was obliged to give up
her position. So our parents decided
that we had better go to the academy
"When we came to take our
entrance examination we found out
how much we had lost by our strike.
While tho rest of us had to join tho
class in elementary Latin, Jack went
into an advanced class; and that's
the reason he's a year ahead Of Rob,
Harry and me in college.
"After the fall work was done Joo
went bock to school, and continued
there, working at home nights and
mornings until the spring work began
on the furni. Father encouraged him
to go ahead, and the next fall offered
to send him totlie Kingsport academy
lor two years. Joe accepted the oiler,
and did some very good work at the
academy. He isn't exactly brilliant,
and would never bo likely to carry oft
many honors for scholarship, but
what ho does, ho does well.
"When the two years were over he
decided to become a mechanic, and
got a place in the factory at Kings
port. Ho has been promoted once or
twice already, and u short time ago it
member of the firm told father that
he was one of the best men they had.
He did not give up trying to learn
when he left school; he studies the
structure and uses of materials and
machinery as closely and patiently as
he did his books. The firm means to
promoto him as fast as he shows him

tho amount of all his expenses while
he was in school. He is devoted to
all ol us, and always declares that it

"So your strike," said I, "did sonic
good after all?"
"Yes to Joe," said Nod. "Iia it
left us one class behind in college. It
gave us a very good lesson, to be sure,
and hardened our muscles; but that

to turn our folly to our own advan

panion. A GOOD SETTER.
He Kept a Close Watch Upon tie
Birds, Without Results.
Ho had tho reputation of being a
mltless setter when I bought him,
and I told all my friends about his
wonderful ability, says a sportsman
in the Naslivillo Herald. I talked of
him so much that they would begin on
the subject themselves when they saw
nie coming, us i by natural associa-

the dog, and said they didn't believe
it was anything like the setter I said
t was, and asked me it 1 believed m
him so much why I didn't show it up
some time and let t hem judge of it
themselves. I was thus led to invit
ing half a dozen out quail-hunting
with nio, though I wasn't quite sure
of the dog, after all. We went on a
ittle camping tour, and found things
in pretty fair condition for a good
hunt. Thero was plenty ot quail.
For the first day tho dog did very
well, and I began to feel triumphant
about him. Ve bagged dozens of
birds and were jubilant.
Tho next day, however, when we
started out rather late in tho morn
ing, the dog was of no account what
ever.- We took IM'K, the colored cooc,
along with us to help carry the game,
and we couldn't get the dog away
from his side. We tried every way in
tho world to urge him to begin opera
tions, but he refused to do anything
except sit and look pitifully nt Dick

and if he stopped tho dog would sit
down and begin looking earnest ly at
him again. Finally we sent one of the
boys back to the tent to get some of
tho dead birds. I said I thought that
would act as a Jreininder to the
dog. Tho boy camo back and said
he couldn't find a bird. Ho had

is to say, slab sides and drawling are
less prevalent in laiikeedom than in
some other places they are not dis
tinctively Yankee productions.

be heard more or less in every town in
Vermont, out tne pronunciation is
not the rule and is most noticeable
among illiterate people. S in all
New England. But if any one will go
down the coast and cross the Hud
son River, he may hear that drawl
with such abominations as are never
approached in Yankee land, and that
among all classes of people. He will
find it strong in New Jersey, faint and
rare in the Philadelphia region, where
the Dutch seem to have given akind of
broadbrogue toall mankind, but strong
again southward to Virginia, where
the people are of English stock. No
doubt the "caow" pronunciation
was brought over from England with
other things good and bad, and plant

a barbarous thing, as reckoned in
New England but it now really be
longs less to Yankeeland than to
some other sections.

ber of times, and the only wsy to put
a stop to present methods is to oloct
men to office who will bo true to the
promises, no maltor what influence
may be employed to induce them to go
back on their pledges.
We will go further than this and
say that the people should resolve
right away that they will no longer
support any but men who can be
trusted to carry out tho wishes of the
people in all matters unless it can bo
demonstrated that said wishes are un
wise. This is the truo course for pa
triotic men and thoy should be satisfied
with nothing short of this. In this
way politics can be purified to some
