Fred Ioriug crept out of the bulkhead
of his father's cellar, and, making aura

fence and went through the Holds to

he picked np a pebble and threw It
against a second-story window. The
window was raised and a head thrust
"Is it you, Fred?'
" Yes, be quick."
" All ready," whispered Ros. and
slipping through the window to the
shed beneath, he dropped to the ground

presently joined by two other boys
whom they greeted as Briuley and
"Have you found out where ho

and Lamar is no coward."
"That remains to bo proved," said
JJrinley. " See if he doesn't beg beforo

said Fred. "Don't let's hurt him; but
let's set him up in the arm-chair, and
dress him for an old woman. I've
brought grandma's cap and spectacles."
"Too tame," said l'.rinlev; "Isay,
give him a ducking first, and then put
him in costume if 3'ou like."
These, and other plan?, all more or
less brutal were suggested, tho final de
cision being in favor of ducking their
victim, anil then securing him in the
academy yard, arrayed in shawl, cap and
spectacles, wiiere ho would be in full
view of the early-rising part of the com
munity in the morning.
Suddenly a voice said, in tones loud,
distinct ami earnest
"I'oys, don't do it."
Thev turned in consternation and sur
prise, for they heard 110 footsteps, and
there stood Old Hillings.
.Roys, don't do it, he repealed.
"Eavesdropping, hey?" said Rrin
ley. who was the first to recover him

said the old man; "it matters not to mo,
so you'll heed my warning."
"Suppose we don' t choose to heed it,"
said IJrinlc', "what do you propose to
do about it?"
"Nothing," said the old man, and
his voice was more in sorrow than in

would have answered them with defi

old man, simply. "Whether he defends

frightening you. why, four against one
is pretty good odds."
Hrinley felt himself color at these
words, and "Fred Loring cried, "That's
true, am how!"
"So it is!" "So it is!" said Tubbs
"Now, boys, take tho advice of a
friend; go home and go to bed, and to
morrow night come to my house and I
will tell you a story," said Old Billings,
sadly. " What say you?"
" I am ready to agree to both propo

Tho next day, as Billings was walk
ing homeward through tho woods, a
hand was laid upon Tiis shoulder, and
the dark but expressive face of the new
student appeared beside him.
"Do vou know what you saved mo
from last night?" asked ho, abruptly.
"From nothing worse than being the
subject of some bovish trick, most like
ly." " It is more likely you saved me from
being a murderer," said Lamar. Feel
my arm, sir."
"It's like iron," said tho old man,

"All was still and dark when we

"Not a word was spoken except in

Postage Stamp Sittings in England.
It will have been seen from tho Post-niastcr-Genfcral's
notification that the
experiment announced last session of
receiving small deposits in postage
stamps has been remarkably successful.
At the Pst-ollice Savings Banks no
sum less than r. shilling "has hitherto
been accepted, and apparently a good
man' people wcro not so indoctrinated
in habits of thrift as to put liy the hum
ble pennies in coin and keep them safe
ly until the shilling limit was reached.
Hence the idea of taking postage stamps,
which are as good as money to the
Post-oflice, and not so temptingly easy
to spend as the coins arc to the humble
capitalist whose frugal habits ma3
chance to sit lightly upon him. The
arrangement mado to attract these de
posits is a very simple one. Forms are
given out to applicants gratis in the
similitude of checks, but divided into
twelve small spaces, each to hold a
stamp; and when ono form has thus
been filled up it will be received as the
deposit of a shilling. As showing how
successful tho experiment has been, it
is announced that, although it has only
been in operation for seven weeks in
ten selected counties, no fewer than
7,030 new accounts have been opened.
It is fair to conclude that if the ar
rangement extended over tho entire
country the number of accounts would
increase in proportion, particularly as
the districts chosen for trial were main
ly agricultural, and contained no dense
aggregations of hunianitj-such as Mid
dlesex, l-aucashire -or Lanarkshire.
The .experiment is intercstimr enom?h
ister prediction of alarmists that thefts
of stamps would be encouraged bv the
regulation has still to be tested.
Whether there is' any foundation for
this apprehension we shall have-better
means of judging when the system is
extended to the whole kingdom as it
will be on and after Mondav next

Moke horses are annually killed or in
jured by over-fecdmg anil by injudi
cious feeding than by starving" or most
other causes. In horses we can detect
as many different temperaments and
dispositions as in man, though but few
horse-owners take this fact into con
sideration in the management of their
horses, particularly in that part of it
relating to food and feeding. Some
horses are natural gluttons, and they
must be seen to carefully or they will,
at times, bo apt to seriously injure
themselves b- feeding too fast, while
much of the food the consume will
pass through them undigested, for
the simple reason tbat it is swallowed
before it has boen properly masticated.
We like to see what is termed a "good
feeder," (one who does not mince or
pick over his food) but then we are not
at at all partial to tho ravenous one.
Such a horse as the .latter named will
dive into his feed with mouth wide open,
and invariably take more at a mouthful
than he can either hold in his mouth or
properly masticate. There are several
