I11GGINS ON SKATES.
Everywhere, in all sortskof newspa
pers, I had read of glorious skating
Central Park skating, Schuylkill .Park,
diamond ditt private ditto the grand
fun men on skates, boys on skates;
plended sylphides in scant skirts, steel
shod, and skirring away over the ice
the thethunder! The very reading
rave me the ice fever, and in the deli
rum cprsquent upon the sudden attack,
I resolved upon taking an icercrpise my
Why not? What was to hinder? J
had qever'navigated that sort of craft,
'tis true. Bui then I'd been on the water
and under water, all my life and on
ice, too some ! Had I not killed seals,
and chased white bears, for weeks to
gether, on ice ?
Women could skate so the papers
faid So did every body else, when I
inquired of them. I could skaie !
What was ihe reason I couldn't? The
only things I'd ever seen a woman do
that I couldn't was to hook her dress "aft,
and carrying six feet breadth of crinoline,
sail through a twenty-inch doorway.
Yes sit I could skate : and I was bpund
on an ice-cruise.
,There was nothing to prevent the ex
pedition from being fitted out at once.
I was lounging about the Piavy l ard, de
tached from everything all acuain
tances included waitincr orders. Dis-
gusied with bar-roouf?, detesticg thea
tres, what was I to do for amustment ?
Whv. skate, of coure ! Ah. ves ! the
very thing, by Jove ! Why hadn't
thoiiht of it before? I'dhaye a cruise
directly, or saoner if possible. No,
must have the tools tirst ana started on
up town to find 'em.
- I brought up in front oT a big window
on tbe starboard side of the Chestnut
street, going towards Schuylkill, where
they had morf different rigs of sliding
machines than yo'u can see national flags
in pibialtar. Knowing about as much
f the cualifications of the' different pat
terps ai.a cow doe of chronometer
time, I went inside, acd asked fpr a pair
of skate. ' ' ."- '
What kind do you prefer, ir!"
"Oh, I have no preference. Give me
the beat article you've got."
"Yes, sir," and the clerk "passed for
inspection a - pair-or orais-ciaa, - steei
clippers, with more gilgifcs and running
rigeing to 'eta than there'is to a french
"These are he best, are ihey,!"
. "Yes, -sir.- decidedly! Just get on
them, sir, and you'll go everywhere and
any where, like patent lightning! If
you don't find it so, bring 'em bark, sir.
and I'll return your money.
"What the price V1
- "Fourteen dollars ! Very pheap, sir.
Didn't b'eleive that, of course ; but in-
rested the amount and made sail for
- Found superb ' skating. Every body
said so, only those that called it elegant j
splendid ! maguifiicent ! , There was a
regiment of men, a battalion of dimity,
and a whole brigade of small craft, on
skates "-skivering, 'scooting., and cutting
all sorts , of, fancies, on the ice ;. every
body laughing, chattering; whooping,
skylarking.and tkirripgp all direction?,
and I don'Lwonder that newspapers.and
everybody else, called 'skating glorious
"Have your skates strapped, sir?"
said an itinerant bootblack about the
height of a walking-stick.
"Do you understand it, bub?"
."Oh. yes, sir. I strap all, the Jadis
skates for 'pp.". ;
Ah ha! Do; eh? Must have a jolly
time of it! Would like the birth' my
self.' There you are. Go ahead boy !"
And I &at down on Blackie's box. about
a couple of fathoms out on the ice. .'
Wbix ! like a rocket, weqt by a
creat strarninrr. Ionff-leffffed chap, with
a cigar flyiiig jibboom, and swinging fiis
arms like a triga.ie's neaa-yaras m a
hurricane, wjtht the braces all adrift.
"Oh, ho ! So they can smoke on skates
-eh, boy ?,'
"Lord, yes, sir. Everybody smokes
en the ice."
"Exactly." So I fired up on a Prin
cipe and shipped it for the cruise.
Urchin announced skates all ataun-
to, and lock' a ntty cent "tractional
ee. ... .....
"Here, boy, here's another fifty.-
Just allow me to sit on your box a few
minutes, till T get the run of the naviga-
"Yes sir you can set there till J git
somebody else to strap."
Sol sat there studying navigation by
dead reckoning, till directly a little pet
ticoat craft, in yellow trowsers, skirts to
her knees, red ' belt, Russian cap, and
arms akimbo,.' swooped down apd check
ed up right in front of me. There she
hung for a minute, quivering like, and
balancing, just as fifji-hawk does pver
hispre)'Tand all the time eyeing me
with a jolly twinkle in her dancing black
"A challenge for a race, sir ! Catch
me if you can !"'....
Little Dimity lifted her left foot a tri
fle, bent the right knee slightly, made a
graceful curve, the bottom of her skirt
just bruiihiiig.my no?e, and off she went
like a flying fish zee-e-t zit !
swinging Lither and thither from side to
nde, her tartin skirt swayinghither and
thither, like the folds of a spanker
brailed in with the ship-head to wind.
So-ho! Thai's challenge, is it ?
And that is the way to skate ! I can
skate? Anybody can skate!
But I couldn't though, whatever any
body else could do. I accepted Dimity's
challenge, however, and her practice on
ice. So I immediately bounced from
that blacking-box, lifted left foot a little
bent right knee, and stuck my arms
akimbo. But I don't cut a "spread ea
gle." Port fopt slid due southeast, end
Btarboard one nor'wtst, still I realized
those spread out pietorial impossibilities
on circus bills. I wonder if my boots
and skates would ever become shipmates
"Hullo ! mister, you musMn't try to
skate all over both sides this ere pond
at once," growled aa old. commercial
looking chap, as "he checked up long
enough t put in the remonstrance
against my ice-monopoly.
"I say. . Blister, Saltwater, couldn't
yer lift yerself amidship a bit, so we
can sail between yer leg?" piped
youag scamp, nie leader to a string of
"Dn't try-to skate on both sides at
once, my dear sir." advised a '-sensible,
Christian looking young man, who cam
to my assistance, and set me on an even
keel once more, "When you lift one
fool, sir, you must throw all your vigor
and muscle inio the other ' limb. And
then remember to sway your Jody so
that your weight .will always . be . upon
that foot which has the ice. -Tis very
easy, sir just this way,"' and away
went my Christian, mentor, with a long
striding, graceful swing. '.' ; ' '
- Oh, yes that is very easy. . All the
vigor. innhe other limb.' Yes, I cn do
it, : So I made a prodigious scout, and
did it ! . ' :
I stuck out jiff, leg; like ' . mpsquitto
when he n blood sucking.,, Put all my
vigor and muscle into right limb, and
wouldn't gef it out again. ' Went off on
one foot, like a shot, crooking right knee
a little, twice'a minute, just as little Di
mity did. Saw a crinoline craft: cross
ing my erase, under convoy, of a big
double:banked chap,- both skating like a
streak." Tried to sheer to port,' and go
clear of. 'em.; Missed stays,-and went
afoul of crinoline-V
The toe of my port skate hooked Miss
Somebody's skirt which gave 'a' broad
sheer to starboard, and I rammed big
convoy .butting him square en ;hjs; cut
water, and drove the re of my Princi
ple half way down his throat. There
was an everlasting tangle, and all hands
went sprawling on the ice, like a nest of
Ineauga land-crabe. , i . j ;
''Look here, sir ! Wbjtdoyou mean I"
yplled the-big convoy, scrambling to his
feet, and mapeuvering for a broadside.
: "Beg'pardon, sir, couldn't help it ?"
I replied meekly, still sitting on the ice.
; "PouldnV help it ! ; Why don't you
stop!" ' ' : : '
. "Didn't know how."'
. 'Oh, he ! green on skates, eh ?" ;
"Yes, greener'n a cabbage !" . v
That mollified big ; chap ' and setting
me on my pins again, ne volunteered) to
educate me in cheering up.
."Turn your toes up. anfl dig the heels
of your skates into the ice and he il
"O. yes; I can do that." And 1
did, directly. Off I shot again on one
leg ; steermg this time for , the shore
for Pd skate enough, v
Halfway in, and there slide right down
in my cruse a crowd of forty or so
girls and mep, and women and boys.
I tried "down brakes," according to in
structions and broke too much. Up'tpes
agd digging my heels into the! ice. I
sagged back like, and doubled amidship,
as if I was going to take a seat and I
did ! I wept down stern foremost, with
a whang, tjiat broke the ice like a pane
of window. glass shivered ly a pebble
burled through it. I had an idea just
thep that spch a bump as'that would have
startefl the arrnor of any iron-afloat.
I sold those infernal' skates just as I
sat, for' four dollars, under a strong con:
viction th'at'there's no fun in skaling.
It's all a humbug. I cant skate I don't
want to. :

How to GctEIdora Rock.
Uriah Abell was a Connecticut far
mer, and in his time a pretty good one.
H s farm like a great many other Con
necticut farms, was full of stones, and he
delighted to clear them out of . the way
of ihe plow. He fcuilt up a gteai many
rods of , substantial stonej wall, but he
could not use up all the stone. He had
cleared one field f alla but onergreai
boulder, about the 'size of a large hay
cock. He wanted to get nd-of that.'
He would haye "blown it to flinders," as
hp. hd aJT find rnnnv nhtera hat -it -a-aa
withinjiwo rods of the "best room win
dows.", which might po to ' fi nders
the same time. So he attempted
haul it out of its bed pee day. After
tiring his pwn and his neighbor's oxen,
and breaking several chain?, Uriah grew
wrathy, and "declared that 'the would
give S5 to any one that would put that
pesky rock out of his sight."
"Wa'al neow, I don't pind taking the
job if you'll find a spade and throw in
some dinner, and a mug of cider along in
This prrpositioa was made by a stran
ger who had just then come up. He
was a fair'specimen of working. Yan
kee, and Iriah dropped the broken chain
and turned square round to look him full
in the face. ,
"Yes I'll give it and the dinner aud ci
der too, but I won't pull my oxen again
at that stone, no how."
"Don't wint you-should. I'm to "put
that stone out of sight; making all smooth
about here, so you can plough right
along. . That's what I'n to do ain' it."
"Yes, thaWis all I want I don't care
how you do it, but if you fail I don't pay
anything, do you understand? Very
well, thep come iaiq dinner."
That done, and,a large cud of tobacco
adjusted, the Yankee threw off his coat
and took up the'spade. He gave a look
at the stone to see the way ii would tip
easiest, and then commenced digging a
hole on the lower side; large and deep
enough to burr the boulder quste out of
siffht. ' In three hours he get out and
o ok a careful measurement, and then
tdug little upon one side. Then he wept
to the wood pile and get a stout stick of
wood, which he planted firmly with one
end in the bottom of his hole and the oth
er bracing against the rock. Tnea he
becan undermining, and worked till he
saw the dirt began to give, and founJ
that the rock was resting on his brace.
"Now'' says he "I ihink I will take
that mug of cider." '
Uriah, who had been watching" him,
ordered out the cider with a rigid good
wilL He even offered to add -"doughnuts
While the ; Yankee was' wiping away
the perspiration and drinking his cider,
Uriah brought his oxen around and hitch
ed a chain to the Toeden prop.
"1 did say I wouldn t pull my oxen
