He had watched a lare bee that had

work; had pl.Vcd a snrtil out of harm's

iroautiful painted butterfly that flitted
:ia-t him; but he began at last to lose
his interest in bees and butterflies, for
it was now tea time, and Charlie was
rowing terribly hungry. Still he
did not think of denning his post, for
no one. but the child liiniself knew
how often he had k-pt his tipsy father
otl" tbe country road when carts or
carriages were coming along, nor how
he had ni uiaged lo guide him in safe
ty, over tlie narrow bridge that led
a-.-ross the river to their cottage. So
Charlie sat there quietly though he
was growing more tired and hungry
every moment, until the sound of a
whistle Kt a little distance attracted
his attention, the soimd gradually
coming nearer and ounding more dis
tinct until a young man jumped over
the stile at the end of tlie nVld and
approached the child, who then know
him to b. gentleman he lud often
met during the past few weeks, some
times sketching, sometimes wandering
about with his kiinpsaek cn his hack
and his portfolio under hi arm. In
deed, a kind of half acquaintance had
sprung up between the young artist
and Charlie one attracted by the
glimpses he had caught ot the pic
tures contained iu the wonderful port
folio, the other by the child's wisttul
glances and his rustic beauty. Busy
with his own thoughts, and, judging
from his happy face, they were very
pleasant ones perhaps dreams of the
time when some wonderful picture of
his should hang on the walls of tlie
academy, and by so doing help him on
the rood to fame .Mid fort.uiic Eustace
Carroll bad half crossed the field be
fore he noticed Charlie and Ji is father.
Then his quick eyes told him the
meaning of tiie little scenr; the quirt,
weary looking child and the sleeping
lather, with his untidy clothes and
with h.scollar toid necktie unfastened,
and his face turned up to the blue ky
that looked down on nothing so de
based as this man, whom God had
made "a little lower than the angels
and who by his own vice, had thus de
With the quick intinet of child
hood, Charlie understood the look of
disgust with which the young artist
turned to him, saying kindly as he did
"You are waiting to talce your la
ther home, T suppose?"
'Yes, sir," replied the child, whilst
a flush of shame spread over his face.
"Well, I should think that he is
likely to lie there for hours. Can't
you leave h im?"
"No, sir, ho might be run over or
fall into the river, if I left him to go
home by himself.
' Oh !" said Eustace, as he glanced
toward the sleeping man, and won
deml if it would be much loss to any
one it he did fall into tlie riv r; but
he checked the thought, remembering
that lie, with his refined tastes, and
many kinds of amusement, could form
no idea of the temptation which drink
might have for this man, with his
smaller advantages of fortune and ed
ucation ; and then an idea flashed
across his mind, and he dctennined to
act upon it.
"Have you had your tea, boy?" he
asked, as he it n? trapped his knapsack
and took out a small parcel wrapped
in white paper.
"Mother will be sure to keep it for
me until I aret home, sir" nrtlil
, Charlie. tJr brix WvmnUl. a
"That's all right," mid Eustace, tin.
derstanding and respecting the feeling
that dieinied the answer ; -meanwhile,
I shall give you this piece of cake, just
to pass the time. When I was a small
boy, stray piece of cake never pre -
vented my eating my meals when they
came, so your mother's tea will not ba
wasted. Now you sit still, for I am
going to paint a picture, aim wnen it
is finished 1 will t-how it to vou.
Very few da. n ties fell to Charlie's
share in those days, and Eustace was
highly ttmiied at the wav in which
he ate his cake, nibbling it oil round
the edge so as to make it last as long
as possible; and he succeeded o well
that the picture was finished almost
at tlie same time as the last currant
"Well, was it good?" asked Eus
tace, as he tied his portfolio.
-Yes; mother does not put cur
rants in her cakes. Sometimes on our
birthdays, when father hai not becu
out. we have a cake, but theu w have
no eeds in it."
And those ere not so nice?"
Oh no, sir, uf cot.rse not," answered
harlie. surpri-d that any one should
ask such a question.
" Well, I am jflad vou like it. I am
oimr back to Loudon in a day or two,

again before I go. Look here, do you
know what this is?"
Ch rlie glanced at the little picture
Eustace held out to him, and then he
gave a scream of surprise.
" Why. it's me and father!"
And so it was; and even though
Eustace should live to Ie an old man,
he will never succeed in making any
thing more true to nature thsn that
hurried sketch. lie had just cau ;ht
the -wist fed. tired look on the ch ild's
face, and it was nil the more striking
as it was brought into suc'i contrast
with the va.'a.'it cotiutentnco of tbn
tlpy sleeper, who looked as thorough
ly out of nH'-e besjdo the child and
' the pleasant srreen background of tlie
nedc, whore the convoiviims nios
soms mingled with the wild roses and
" Wait a moment," said Eustace. and
then he wrote at the bottom of the
feb'tch three lines from a poem of
" Oh wad some power the jc'ttle jrle ua,
To see ourselves as h hers see n.
It wad fme ninny a trouble free us."
"There," he continued, putting the
picture in the child's hands. "You
bhall have that, and if you like to show
it to your father one of these days, do
so; it may tach him a lesson." And
before the child could make any reply,
Ftistice was off and away, tramping
along the high road.
Five yciirs had paed before the
young artist had the time and chance
to visit the quiet village again. In
those five years he had done good
work had thought and worked, and
painicd, until people had begun to be
lieve in him and talk of htm as one of
tlie most prominent painters of the
Still, in the midst of it all. he often
rememlerod his little sketch and won
dered without much hope in the
wonder, though whether his idea
that it might do good had come to
pass ; and on the day he traveled down
to Morston, the memory of the scene
cfme clearly before him with the
thought of the grand old words
"Cast thy bread upon the waters, for
thou shalt find it after many da vs."
"Such a poor little crumb of good,
thougn, il was," sii l Eustace to him
self; "still. I wond r 1 wonder and
FU try to find it out, too."
And as it happened. Eustace did find
it out more quickly than he exacted,
for that very evening, as he was re
turning from a walk, in the course of
which he had vis ted" some of hi old
haunts, there passed him on the road
a mail and a handsome boy of about
"My little friend and his father,"
suddenly thought Eustace, wh-.e
quick, artist eye seldom forgot a face
or figure, and he quickened his pace in
order to keep within a short dis.ance
of the boy.
So "the Three went on. past the cor
ner of the field where the sketch had
been taken, down the road and acro'-s
the narrow bridge, till the man and
boy reached a little cottage, the small
front garden of v hi h was gay with
bright-colored, old-fashioned flowers.
"That looks promis ng." thought
Eustace: "no drunkard ever had a
garden like that;" and determined to
ascertain the fact of the cae, he went
up to tiie door with the intention of
asking the nearest way to tlie next
Throiio-h fhe o-.P!i door he caught a:

described, a bright sud'e broke over
the boy's face, and, half turning
round, he exclaimed :
'Fa her, it's my painter !" and, to
his surprise, Eustnce found that in
that household, at least, he was a hero,
and the young artist never felt more
reverence for his art than he did as he
lisiened to the account of the good his
pietore had done.
For some t me Charlie had kept the
6ketch and had been afraid to show it
to his father, but tlie man found it by
chance one day, and
"It. was more than I could stand,
sir," he said, addressing Eustace. "I
did not need any one to tell me what
it meant, but although I wondered
where it came from 1 was ashamed to
ask. Somehow I could not get the

to dream of it at night until it fairly

j A CALIFORNIA LETTER
! rroai ail hi Resident r r.aUsniBth.
! Dear Fkiexd: The schools of
j San Francisco have closed for a two
j weeks' vacation. It is in such times
, that I forget the present. and live with-
in myself. Fast scenes will then come
before my mind ; the valleys, brooks,
mountains and villages of my never-to-be-forgotten
mountain home, many
incidents of my boyhood life, and voy
age to America- I have a tender re
gard, abve all, for the people f Ne
braska at large", an J for those wlio have
been kind to me, personally. And, al
thtmgh.I have not corresponded with
them yet, I have thought of them
whenever my mind was not preoccu
pied by business and family rates.
California has as many climates as
there are counties or localities, and
what is true of one is different in the
other. There is gue along some of
the iLyer courses, especially in Marys
ville. If strikes me, as if the ravages
of diphtheria in California and Oregon
! w?re more fearful
than in the east.
It is a frequent occurrence that a f.itn
ily luses from thfee io six children in
a short period. The doctors liovovr,
contradict this statement.
The popul tti'M at luge, as far as
education is coacenied, I consider som
what inferior lo that ol the average
western staie. This will be realilv
seen by taking into consideration the
element that flocked California In
the e;tr!y part of its, history. It is true
that this is p irtlr overcome by the im
mense amount of newspaper reading
that is done by the people, for nearlj
! everv f.rmilv in the chics takes a tlai
1 paper, and a great many in the coun
try. Nevertheless the reading of news
without any reflection will never be
as ihslitute for early training.
In the country schools tho number
of ge.itlemen teachers is quite larg".
Their salary is from 70 to 90 dollar.
In cities very few gentlemen are em
ploye I. The lady teachers as a rule,
like to stay in the centers f culture
and Duly reluctantly go into the out
lying mountain enmities. Their sala
ries in cities is from G'J to 30 dollars.
So far the Slate has had uniformity
of text books, but by the first of Janu
ary there will beonly County uniform
ity. The new const ilution has ma le
some important changes, among which
is the cutting off of the High Schools
from drawing public money. It leaves
also the examination of leacliprs to
counties. This was caused by the im
mense frauds that have been practiced
by selling questions in advance, for
The State Teachers Association

one from each ward. The Sujt has a
dr puty, at a salary of 83,000.00. The
ro.ms of the" B;ard and the ptin-dj al
schools are connected by telephone.
We have a boys' at.d a girls' High
School (no co-education of sexes in the
High School), Grammar schools, Prim
ary school and evening schools. Some
of the Grammar aud Primary schools
are called cosmopolitan, because Ger
man and French are taught. There
has been much opposition to these
studies, and to music and drawing
Therefor-, quite a number of teachers,
with certificates :h both English Hint
German, have beeniigagcd during the
past two years. These teach regular
classes, and give one hour's instruc
tion in either German or French. (The
school houses, as well as most other
houses, are all constructed of wood.
There are about 750 teachers in the
department, among whom there are
only about CO gentlemen.)
Theie are 10,000 Irish voters and
only 5,000 Germaw. The San Francisco
school department experu
dolhirs the past year, sje;
tool must be
kej)t ftix r-jonllis iu dis lict schools, in
order that the district may be entitled
to public money.
But enough tf schools. I will now
lrit tly touch upon such subjects as oc
cur to me. There is much fog here
around the bay. The average temper
ature of San Francisco is 52J in win
ter, and 53 in summer. A person
needs to be dressed warm the . whole
year, for, even if it should be some
what warm during the day, the even
ing may be quite cool and foggy. In
no other State did I ever see so many
strongly-built men and women as in
California. The principal aim of life
in the city is how to m tk money.
Everybody speculates mere or less in
mining stocks. Many get rich by a
stroke of fortune, but many more lose
their all in a day.
Senatoi Sharon's reception to Grant
is said to have cos . 40.000 dollars. Cali
foi uia is abeautifui land, but the ques
tion of bread and butter comes nearer
home to a man, especially to a new
comer without means, than perhaps in
any other state in the Union. The

of the word. I suppose, that ne wly"
