BY T. S. ARTHUR.
The boy started at the sound of his
fathers's voice, while his color height
ened. Mr. Lloyd had left the house,
with his axe on his shoulder, a few mi
nutes before, on his way to a tlearinsr
net far ofF, where his men were at work ;
but a thought crossing his mind had indu
ced him to return. He spoke with some
sternness of voice and manner.
'Sir,' repeated the boy, with a half ti
mid g-Iance at his father.
'Don't go to the mill-dam to-day, said
Mr. Lloyd, tweaking slowly and with an
Frank did not answer promptly. So
his father said, in a tone of sharp inter
rogation, 'Do you hear, sir?'
' ery wen ; men see to it tnat l am
obeyed.' And Mr. Lloyd started off
airain for the clearing. He did not feel
altogether satisfied with himself, for he
was conscious of not having addresse
his son in the right spirit. It would have
been as easy to have spoken more mildly,
to have made the interdiction in a diner
ent tone of voice, and yet been quite as
likely to insure obedience.
4I wi-sh I could control mssclf a little
better, saiJ the farmer as he strode away
'I don t think this harsh, peremptory
mode of speaking ever does much good
I'm sure it never helped to make me any
more obedient when I was a boy; but
rather tended to excite rebellion. The
most outrageous thing I ever did, when
boy, w as in defiance of angrily announced
authority. Frank is sensitive, and my
manner hurt him. I must guard myself
'What's the matter, Frank?' inquired
the boy's mother, coming to the door.
She had heard herhusliand s voice pitch
ed in rather a harsh key, and it drew her
away from her work.
'Nothing,' was answered, 'only father
always speaks to me as if he would take
ir.y head off.
'What did he say ?'
'He told me not to go to the mill-dam.'
'Why he did say that?'
'I don't know.'
,11 e had some good reason no doubt;
and you must be sure not to disobey him.'
It was, perhaps, two hours later in the
day, when a lad named Jacob Green met
Frank on the road, a little way from his
father's house He had a fishing rod in
'Where are you going?' asked Frank
'lo the mill-dam. ont you go
Jacob strongly urged a compliance with
his wishes, but i rank resisted all tempta
tion. 'I met Jacob Green just now,' said
Frank, speaking to his mother a little
Did you?' Mrs. Lloyd replied, in an
'Yes, and he's going to the mill-dam
all alone. He's most too small a boy to
le trusted there by himself and he's
very venturesome. If father hadn't said
what he did, I would go there, just to see
that Jacob didn't come to any harm.'
'You musn't disobey your father, it will
make him very angry,' said Mrs. Lloyd.
May-be,' suggested the boy, if I were
to go to the top of the hill, just above the
dam, and sit and watch Jacob, he wouldn't
mind. That wouldn't be going to the
mill-dam, you know. And if you told
just how it was, and said that you had
; thought it better for me to go there on
Jacob's account, I am sure he would say
; that I had done just right, instead of
Mrs. Lloyd thought for a little while,
' and then replied :
S 'Jacob is a small boy, and there are
j dangerous places about the mill-dam. I
think you had better go, Frank, and I'll
make it all right with your father. Only
be sure not to so down to the water, un
less something, happens to Jacob.'
Thus permitted and enjoined, irank
started off for the mill-dam, which was a
quarter cf a mile distant, in a lonely val
ley, surrounded by woods and hills, lie
walked along rapidly, for the idea that
Jacob Green might fall into the water at
any moment having taken possession of
his mind, he felt anxious to reach the
neighborhood of the dam as quickly as
possible. On gaining the vrooded hill
that rose steeply above the point where
the water, swollen by late rains, leaped
roaring over the dam, Frank searched
with his eyes, hurriedly along the shore,
un and down, for Jacob Green. But the
lad was nowhere to be seen. He would
have shouted his name, but a secret sense
a disobedience, and fear of discovery by
his hasty-tempered father, who might
hear his voice, kept him silent. Descend
ing as near to the edge of the dam as he
deemed it prudent, under the circumstart;
ces, to go, he examined every point in the
range of vision with the most careful scru
A svdden fear now seized upon the
boy's heart. Jacob must have fallen into
the water and been swept over the dam !
His heart beat like a hammer in his
breast; respiration became difficult; he
felt a choking sensation in his throat. For
some moments he stood bewildered. But
anxiety for the little boy's safety became
superior to all other emotions.
He may have fallen in near the head-
gate,' he said to himself. And then, as
the imacreof Jacob, clinging to some frail
support, amid the whirling, sucking ed
dies, presented itself to his mind, Frank
sprung to the spot where the water from
the dam flowed into the mill-race. Hold
ing on to a piece of wood, he leaned over
the brink of a high stone wall or pier,
and as he looked down into the water that
seethed and struggled above the open
gate, he held his breath in momentary
suspense. But no sign of the lad was vi
sible. Frank drew himself up, taking a
deep inspiration, and stood for some mo
ments bewildered and at fault. Then he
stepped lightly over a narrow plank that
had been thrown across the sluice into
which the head-gate opened, and standing
on one of the abutments of the dam, lean
ed his body over and looked down a dis
tance of some twenty feet, into the mad
whirpool of waters that lay beneath. His
head swam; and he lifted himself up and
moved back with a feeling of terror in
his heart. If he were to fall headlong
there, no power on earth could save him!
A little while Frank stood on the abut
ment that jarred to the heavy fall of wa
ter. Then he stepped carefully across
the narrow bridge that separated him
from the land, and took a long breath as
he felt himself in a position of safely.
Slowly and anxiously were his eyes now
thrown around him, and every point with
in their range searched with the most
careful scrutiny. But the sVarthwas en
tirely fruitless. Ascending the hill that
rose above the dam, Frank now ran along
its brow for some distance, up the stream,
letting his gaze fall upon every part of
the shore. Suddenly he stopped with an
exclamation of relief, for Jacob had come
into full view, setting upon a rock that
projected far into the dam, holding his
fishing-rod above the water, and watch
ing the scarlet-topped cork that lay mo
tionless in a quiet eddy.
Frank did not call to the boy, nor by
any sign made known his proximity. He
had come, in disobedience to his father,
to watch over and protect him from harm,
and the fear of hasty inisjudgment on the
part of his father, when the fact of diso
bedience became known, sobered his feel
ings, and made him prefer solitude to
companionship. So he sat down, conceal
ing himself among the trunks of three or
four large trees; yet keeping his head in
a position to see Jacob through a small
opening between them. Nearly half an
hour passed, when Jacob, tired of watch
ing his immovable cork, drew up his line,
and moved down the bank to a position
nearer the point where the swollen water
went rushing over the dam. As he threw
his line again, Frank arose and walked
along the hill above him, until he came
nearly opposite the thundering waterfall,
and then sat down again to watch the
lonely boy himself more lonely.
The clearing at which Mr. Lloyd was
at work with his men lay about a quarter
of a mile from the mill-dam. The father
had just leveled an immense sycamore,
and stood gazing at the white trunk, with
its giant limbs, when a neighbor, emerg
ing from the wood behind him, came up
and said :
'Good day, Mr. Lloyd!'
'Ah! Good day to you, Maxwell!1
responded the farmer, in a hearty tone.
Splendid land this,' said the other,
'but heavily timbered.'
'A year or two will show its quality,'
Mr. Lloyd remarked,
'Yes ; you can hear the dam roaring
even here, when the wind seta this way.'
'Dangerous place for boys, I should
think,' said Maxwell, in a tone that made
the farmer look at him with a sobered
aspect. 'I saw your boy there as I came
'What!7 The axe dropped trom Mr.
' i t . 4 i -i it ii mii!
t Lioya s nana, wnue a aark snaaow tell
over his countenance.
'I saw your boy there, skipping about
the head-gate, with as little concern as if
he had been on a level floor.'
'Oh! isn't that too much ! And I po
sitively forbade him going near the dam!'
Mr. Lloyd's excitement was sudden and
'If it was my boy, I'd take the hide off
him, said Maxwell.'
'He'll be sorry for this to the latest day
of his life !'
And with these threatening words on
his lips, Mr. Lloyd turned away, and
disappeared in the woods. Only once he
pausedj and that was to cut a thick, strong,
little birch rod, then he strode forward
with long reaching steps in the direction
of the mill-dam.
Near the place where Jacob had drop
ped his line, the decayed trunk of a fal
len tree projected several feet in the wa
ter. Soon growing impatient from want
of success in his sport, the boy, in some
thing of a fit of desperation, walked out
to the end of this trunk, and threw his
line as far up the stream as he could lling
it. Then he watched the cork as it float
ed rapidly down with the current, hoping
that some fish would seize the l-- -t aod
drar it under. But no denizen of the tur-
bid stream saw the tempting morsel, or,
seeing, was lured to take the treacherous
food. Excited now, by the real danger
of the little boy, Frank started up and
was about calling to him to come back up
on the shore, when the sharp crack of a
fallen limb, broken by a heavy tread,
caused him to turn suddenly, and there
stood his father, with :i face made dark
by cruel anger, one hand outstretched to
seize him, and the other uplifted, and
grasping a heavy rod.
'Oh, father, don't!' exclaimed the
frightened boy. 'Don't! Ask mother!'
'Didn't tell you nut to come here?,
was the stern response, and the father's
grip tightened on the rod, as he seized
the boy's arm. The hand was already
descending, freighted with a fearful blow,
when a wild cry of terror fwept up from
the waters, and arrested the arm midway
in its course. The eyes of father and son
both turned to the direction from whence
the cry came. Jacob had fallen in the
dam, and was already gliding away in
the rapid current. Making a sudden
spring, Frank freed himself from the
grasp of his father, and then went leap
ing down the hill with wind-like speed.
It was some moments before Mr. Lloyd
could recover sufficient presence of mind
to tollow. JSut ere he was halt way to
the water, Frank had reached a point
beyond the floating"boy, and was creeping
out upon the slender trunk of a sapling,
that bent low over the water, in the hope
of grasping him as he was borne onward
by the strong current. But the brave
lad saw at a glance, on gaining the ut
most point of the tree, that he would float
a few feet beyond his arm. So, with sin
gular decision and presence of mind, he
dropped into the water, grasping a slen
der extreme branch of the tree, and
throwing his freed hand still farther out
in the stream. But, alas ! the rush of
water against his body commenced bear
ing both him and the tree top downwards
and inwards towards the shore. Consci
ous of this, at a moment when Jacob was
only a few feet above him, Frank let go
of the tree top; and pushed himself out
with a stroke of his feet, far enough to
be able to grasp the drowing boy. As
he did so, both wont gliding on towards
the dam. only a hundred feet below,
equally powerless in the strong current.
For some moments Mr. Lloyd stood
paralized upon the shore. The struggl
ing bovs were beyond his reach, and
wholly beyond his s.kill to save. Then he
commenced running along the bank, his
mind in an agony of terrible suspense,
keeping opposite to them as they went
quickly down the swollen flood. In less
than two minutes they were within a few
feet of the dam, yet still, if the eyes of
Mr. Lloyd did not deceive' him, in a lin"
with the abutment, and a faint hope dawn
ed within his mind that they might strike
against the pier, and glide inwards to
wards the head-gates, instead of out
wards, in the current, and ever the dead
Mr. Lloyd stood still in fearful sus
pense, his lips apart, his arms reaching
out impotently, and his face as pale as
ashes. Suddenly he struck his hands to
gether, and sprang forward with an eager
bound. The drowning buys had swept
against the pier, and j assed instantly un
der from sight. Throwing off his cat as
he ran, and drawing off his boors as he
reached the head-gate, Mr. Lloyd leaped
into the water, and disappeared
feet inside of tin
pot where he had een
them go down. In a moment or two he
came to the surface, grasping tightly the
two boys, now insensible, struck out with
one hand vigorously for the shore, and
succeeded, though not without difficulty,
in reaching a spot just above the heavy
stone wall, where he could clamber up
the bank. In striking the abutment, the
pressure of the current against the lads
had borne thein inwards into the quiet
eddy above the head-gate, instead of out
ward into the leaping cataract.
The first care of Mr. Lloyd was to
restore, if possible, animation to the ap
parently dead bodies of th." two boys.
Frank earliest showed signs of reevtry;
then there was a fet-lle play of the pulse
and a slight flushing of the cheeks of
Jacob, but to neither did life c me 1 aok,
at the time, in full vigor. A neighbor,
who happened to come by, assisted Mr.
Lloyd to carry the buys home, where, tin
der the attendance of a ihvMcian,
, activity was soon restored t- the vita

And then the mother of Frank related
how, with her permission, he had gone to
the mill-dam to watch over and guard the
little boy who was there all alone. And
she related also, for she had gleaned
from her recovered son the incident al
ready known to the reader, how he had
passed nearly an hour upon the hill abore
the water, after having searched about
the head-gates, watching least harm came
to the lonely and thoughtless Jacob. The
heroism of his son Mr. Lloyd knew al

with his head bowed upon his breast. A

in wrath above his heroic son, with hi.

life had flowed back free-y through his
veins. When fully satisfb d that all dan
ger was past, he had retired from the
chamber where he lay, displeasure at the
act of disobedience resuming the upper
most place in his mind.
Now his feelings towards the boy were
altogether changed. Tender love had
driven out wrath.

spoke with a troubled countenance towards

He remembered now only the stern dis

heroism and self-devotion were forgotten.
'Is father a'ngry still ?' Frank lifted his
eyes, that were tearful and sad, to his

Instantly the boy's eyes flew open.
And his arms, leaping upwards, caught
eagerly the neck of his father, and drag

lay against his softer and warmer face.
'I wasn't disobedient in heart, father,'
sobbed the excited boy. Ask mother.
She will tell you all about it.'
'I know all, my son,' replied Mr. Lloyd
as soon as he could steady his voice. 'I
know all. You have been brave, noble,
manly, and I am proud of you.'
Oh, with what delicious sweetness did
these words of praise fall upon the boy's
ears. From other lips they would have
been pleasant; but coming from that cold
parent, always more ready to blame than
to praise, th -y were as honey to his sold.
And the father, in after tine-, could no

A Rich California Woman.
Mrs. Eliza Todd, who owns a ranch a
mile below We
versvule, is a lvmaroa.'le
woman. In IS-fJ she walked fr. m
Shasta to Weav-rville, and, without in -ni-y,
began the business of washing for
six dollars a dozen. An acquaintance,
who lives near her domicil, says that fcr
along time sho was bending over the
wash-tub at day-light in the morning, at
noon, and at ten o'clock at night. B';-i-ness
prospered, and after a while' she
bought two claims, which turned out well.
Then she bought chickens, which laid
eggs, and which she sold at half a dollar
a piece; then she bought a pig at si
and sold its progeny for an ounce or t-o;
then bought cows and sold milk. Busi
ness still increased, and she began buying
real-estate, lending tnone-y at ten per cent
a month, and speculating in claims; al
ways was fortunate; very touch turned
something to gold. Now rhe is me of
the largest property holders in the north.
