"There’s someone coming." he said.
Jessie turned and saw Miss Malden
approaching. She looked at her tuud
«ly feet, her bedraggled hat and her
splattered blouse and skirt.
“I’ll get an awful scolding,” she
said, half to herself and half to the
boy. Then for the first time she
scrutinized John Burt. She noted
that he was well dressed; that he i
was not barefooted, like most farmer
boys, and that he was handsome and
"Do you belong to the riffraff?” j
asked Jessie, lowering her voice so
lhat the approaching governess

"Never heard of it,” replied John
Burt in a puzzled smile. “What
is it?”
"I don’t know,” said Jessie; “but
my papa don’t allow me to associate
with the riffraff, and I forgot, until

face of the boy. Before he could
speak Jessie turned to meet Miss
"Why, Jessie Carden, what have
you been doing?” With a cry of dis
may the governess dropped an arm |
fal of flowers and surveyed the wreck
of the sailor suit.
Jessie looked penitent indeed as
•she gazed at the muddy shoes and the
torn stocking; but contrition is a fee
ble flame in the heart of a child.
“Never mind the old clothes,
<Jovie,” she said. "Watch me catch
a crab! I can do it just splendid!”
“Jessie, lay that pole down and

once!” She gathered up the flowers
. and took Jessie by the hand.
“Good-b) e. Prince! Good-bye, John
Burt!” Jessie waved her hand gaily
at her fishing companion as Miss Mal
den turned into the path leading
through the woods.
“He was real nice, and you’re aw
ful good, Govie, not to scold him!”
were the words that reached John
Burt as he carried his basket of crabs
to the wagon.
John Burt's Boyhood.
For two hundred years the Burt
house had withstood the blasts of
•winter and the withering heat of sum
mer. Time had worked upon the
rough exterior until it seemed like a
huge rectangular rock, weather-worn
and storm beaten. The small plateau
on which it stood sloped northward
to the sea. Rugged rocks to the west
stood as a wall, frowning at the quiet
beauties of salt marsh and cedar
swamp below. To the south were
patches of meadow wrested from
wood and rock by generations of toil.
Through this fairer section a brook
wandered between banks festooned
with watercress. Old settlers knew
the locality by the name of Rocky
When Hezekiali Burt died, Peter
Burt inherited the hold homestead in
Rocky Woods. He- was a young giant
with the shoulders of a Hercules. At |
the age of thirty he took to wife the (
fairest maiden of the surrounding ;
country, and to them a son was born
and christened Robert Burns Burt. A
year later the mother sickened and
died. The gfrief of Peter Burt was
terrible as his strength. For a year
he remained a prisoner in his house;
then returned to work, and for two
years labored with the energy of a
demon. His second marriage followed.
He led to the altar the daughter of a
poor farmer, and of this prosaic union
seven children were born.
After fifteen years of work and sor
row the patient wife folded her tired
hands closed her weary eyes and
sank into that sleep which awakens
not to toil. If Peter Burt loved his
second wife, lie never told her so. If
he loved her children, his expression
of affection took a peculiar form, lie
mad.* no secret of his favoritism fot
Robert Burns Butt, the only child of
his first wife.
Robert was a boy of whom any
father would he proud. At twelve he
was sent to school in lUagham. At
nineteen he entered Harvard, gradu
ating in four years wiU honors. Af

Burt, but one escaped. A child, two
years old, was found warmly wrapped
in its traveling blanket, uninjured, on
a cake of ice, a few minutes after the
car plunged beneath the water. It
was John Burt.
In the opinion of his neighbors,
Peter Burt was crazy from the hour
the news came to him. Strange
stories were whispered concerning
Captain Burt, as he was then called.
Belated travelers along the lonely
road saw lights burning through all
hours of the night. They heard the
old mau talking or praying In a loud
Upon the death of Robert. Peter
Burt went to Boston and buried his
dead. With tearless eyes he saw' the
pride of his old age lowered into the
grave. Robert Burns Burt was a care
ful lawyer, and his will covered every
contingency. It appointed his father
executor of his small estate, and in
trusted him witli the care of his son.
Peter Burt placed the boy in the keep
ing of a competent nurse, and re
turned to his farm.
Save for the occasional smoke from
the chimney, there was no sign that
Peter Burt existed throughout the
three months that followed. His son
Joseph called at the house, but was
not admitted.
At the end of this period the old
man emerged and was seen in Hing
ham. For the first time in years he
spoke to his neighbors, who noticed
that his hair was as driven snow,
and that his face shone with a
strange light. In the calm manner
ot' one controlled by an unalterable
conviction, he stated that he had
made his peace with God, and was in
spired by Him. He had received the
gift of prophecy and of understand
When John Burt was seven years
old his grandfather brought him to
the old farmhouse. With the boy
came his nurse and her husband,
William Jasper, the latter charged
with the duties of hired man. Thus
John Burt began his life on the farm.
When John had mastered his let
ters and primer he was sent to school
in Hingham, taking the regular course
for five years. Then a private tutor
came from Boston. Five days in the
week the iioy studied uuder this
young man’s direction, and made rap
id progress. With bis stern old face
lighted with joy s*cd pride, Peter Burt
would listen to the recitations.
James Blake.
John Burt was fourteen years old
when he firs', met Js>Cio Blake. The
course, he began prartice in Boston,
and his success was instantaneous.
For ton years after the death of liis
wife, Peter Burt conducted the farm
of his forefathers. One after another
of his sons and daughters, as they
became of age, left the old home,
never to return. One night after sup
per Peter Burt informed the remain
ing children that he was going to sea.
He had bought an interest in a whal
ing vessel, and would sail from New
Bedford in a week. To Sarah—the
eldest of the children—he gave three
hundred dollars, together with in
structions concerning the manage
ment of the farm. He did not know
how long he would be gone—it might
be a year or it might be five. With
some tenderness he kissed the weep
ing orphans, and tramped down the
road in the direction of Hingbam.
Five years later the Segregansett
dropped anchor at New Bedford. None
of the crew that went on with her re
turned. Peter Burt sold the cargo,
paid off li is men, disposed of his in
terest in the ship, and on the follow
ing day walked into the Burt farm
house. Ho was greeted affectionate
ly by his son Joseph, who for a year
had lived alone in the old house. A
week later the boy was sent to school
in Boston, and Peter Burt began his |
solitary occupancy of the ancestral j
home. j
Shortly before Peter Hurt’s return. |
Robert had married, and the old man I
was delighted when the young couple j
[ made a visit to the old farm. The
! following year John Burt was born, |
and Peter Burt journeyed to Boston
to witness tlie christening.
Two years later Robert Burns Burt
and his wife were instantly killed in
a railroad accident. The train crashed
through a bridge. It was winter, and
bitterly cold. Of the fifteen passen
gers in the car occupied by Robert
elder Blake nad purchased the olt !
Leonard farm, and fo had become the !
nearest neighbor of Peter Burt. There j
were several children In the Blake j
family, but this narrative has concern ;
only with James, the eldest, a boy of
John Burt's age.
The two farms were separated by a .
creek, which, at. a place called the
Willows, widened to a pool, famed as j
a tlshing and swimming place. One j
June morning John was seated on a
log spanning the narrow neck of this j
reach of water. Fie had landed a j
bass, when the cracking of twigs and
the swaying of the underbrush on the
farther side of the creek attracted his
A moment later a boy emerged
from the thtcket. He surveyed John
with an expression more of contempt
than of surprise. The new comer was
a tall, well-formed lad, straight, as an
arrow, quick and graceful in his
movements. He also carried a rod,
which he resttsi against the log; and
for a few seconds he calmly gazed at
John Burt.
"Hello! ”
"Hello!" answered John Burt.
"No; swimming." replied John.
"Think you’re smart, don't ye?” re
sponded the strange boy as he baited
his hook. "Crazy Burt’s boy. ain’t
ye? No objection to my (ishin’, have
; you?"
There was a taunting sarcasm !■
his voice, and defiance in his air.
Without waiting for reply he cast
his line into the water.
“You can fish as long as you please
on your own side of the creek." said
John sullenly. For halt an hour no
| word was spoken. John caught four
j bass during that lime, while Jim
| hooked only cel grass. Then he cast
j his line across the pool, dropping it a
I few feet from John’s line.
| John Burt’s face flushed angrily.
“Keep on your own side!” he com
I manded.
“I'll fish where I ilarn please! This
isn't your creek!" retorted Jim Blake
with a defiant grin. "If it is, what
are you going to do about it?"
As he spoke John brought his hook
near the surface, and by a sudden
twist "snagged" Jim Blake's line.
With a jerk he whipped the rod from
his opponent's hand. Young Blake
was furious. John calmly towed the
rod across the pool, unsnarled the
lines, and threw the rod on the bank.
Obeying a boy's first instinct, Jim
looked for a stone, but found none.
Then he jumped for the log. Drop
ping liis rod, John Burt also sprang
forward, and they met in the center
of the bridge.

Spool Building.
There is nothing more interesting
for an ingenious hoy or girl. Given a
lot of spools and a ball of florists' wire,
so much can lie done that it is impos
sible to give a detailed description. To
collect spools is a much easier job
than the old-fashioned practice of col
lecting buttons. Old buttons are
sometimes valuable in piecing out a
set. but empty spools are usually
thrown away. A person of enterprise
can always collect them, and the
smallest and most insignificant is not
to be despised. A coming architect
can plan a house, and the builder of
a suspension bridge can string his
spools securely on wire and produce a
complete and steady structure. Strong
little taborets may be made of them,
if there is solid wood for the table
part; the spools may be used for the
legs and supports. A trash basket
may be made of them, strung one on
top of the other, with a wooden bot
tom. and lined with gay cretonne. The
smaller spools make pretty picture
frames, especially if painted white or
green. They may be used in a hun
dred ornamental ways, they may be
collected from a dozen different
sources, and they are sure to provide
amusement for innumerable rainy
A Luxurious Bed.
An Indian potentate recently order
ed from Paris a bed which will rival
the rajah's bed in the Arabian Nights.
It is of sat in wood, richly carved, and
ornamented with silver plates in re

of roses, pink and corn, the rajah's
coat of arms being placed at the head.

girl one French, one Greek, one Span

Mount McKinley is known to be
the steepest of all the great moun

most other great peaks from the fact
that arctic conditions begin at its

"Our Lady of the Manor House.”
But that was long ago.
In those distressing days of civil
war everybody came to the capital.
Her old home on the Hudson sold,
her property gone, Mrs. Livingston
was persuaded by New York friends
to come to Washington, take p large

I,ady Agnes and the Major were to
make a home for some months in Vir

were to make this wedding the glad- ,
dest and gayest of all times. After |
years of peril, separation and anxiety, j
the good had come, and what so beau- '
tiful as Easter Sunday.
Saturday our big house was a floral
garden. Senators and members sup
plied roses, lilies and jasmine from I
the Congressional gardens. Palms. ;
azaleas and pale acacias trom the \
great, palm houses. Boys and girls
searched over April Rock Creek woods

Lady Agnes.
Nothing could bo too beautiful for
lauly Agnes. The ceremony was to
be at the close of the vesper service
in old St. Jonn's church. Already the
chancel was stately with palms and
lilies, while against the soft gray wall
and over the open Bible hung a largo
white cross of lilies and white violets.
Only a few touches remained for to

“Oh, that's nothing. Another box
of flowers,” laughed the girls. ‘ The
whole regiment will be sending Agnes

"What did you sa>?"
No voice could have spoken another
word after looking into the blanched
face of the Major as he quietly read
aloud front a slip of paper:
"He ready to march southward at

"What shal' we do to-morrow? It'll

“Now, that's just right sensible,

I times.
At daylight we were dressed in our
' Sunday best. Even Dolly's hat was
beautiful by the early dawn. We gath
ered at the stairway to greet the fair,
sweet bride, in her white bridal gown
with lilies fastening her long veil and
: Easter lilies in her hands. For a
moment we choked and looked and
felt like a lot of creeping children, as
the big, handsome lover held her in
his arms, so still—so long—with the
pretty head on his breast, and her soft
veil over him, and kissed her reverent
ly and put her in the carriage without
a word.
Slowly we walked up the aisle to
the delicious, tender music of the
organ notes. The birds sang outside
the open windows; the sun rose up
from the east as if
The elands of night were broken, Joyful anthems swell.

Agnes rested her long-stemmed J
lilies across their clasped hands. She j
bent lower her bright head with a
grate beyond her knowledge and
seemed the loveliest Easter flower of
all. The sunshine fell across her
hair through the stained window, and
