UNCLE BENT'S GREAT BOWLDER.
'Good-morning, Uncle Boat! I've
come over to see if you can givo mo
Uncle Bent stood looking at a
huge bowlder in a field beside the
house. Ho was somethiug of a
bowlder himself ; well-rounded,
massy, hard, with a jaw as set and
firm as if it had becu modeled out
of the granite hills.
He turned aud looked at his neph
ew, and a grim smile flickered like
April sunshino over the compact,
Wallace Bent was as little like his
uncle as a boy of the same name aud
raco could well be. There was noth
ing of the bowlder about him. Ue
was small and rather delicate, yet
with a certain decision and strength
in his plain, honest face.
He saw the slightly derisive smile,
and was conscious of looking very
puny iudecd in the eyes of his stem
relative. Ho blushed, and, aware
that such evidence of weakness
would not tend at all to raise him in
the old man's estimation, blushed
'Want, a job, do you ? I declare !'
said Uncle Bent. '"What do you
think you can do?'
'I should think there might be a
good many things about your place,
or your mill, or your store, that I
might do,' "Wallace replied, with
awkward diilidcncc. 'Any way,
mother said I ought to apply to yon
before going to any one else. I've
got to do something now, you know ;
I'm not going to let her support me,
now I can support myself.'
'Yes, I thought both of you ought
to come to that conclusion long ago,'
said the old man. 'A poor boy liko
you ought to have been put to earn
ing his living sooner.'
'I suppose so,' "Wallace assented.
'But mother wanted to keep me in
school as long as possible.'
You're a pretty good scholar, I
hear,' said Uncle Bent; 'hut
what good will that ever do ye?
You haven't the means to go thro'
college and take a profession.'
'That's true; but I believe a little
education will be good for me, what
ever I do for a living,' said "Wallace,
with a firm and intelligent look,
quite forgetting his blushes. 'That
may be a mistake. But I am ready
to go to work now. And I thought
I would please mother by calling
Uncle Bent was greatly annoyed,
for ho said to himself, 'If I hire a
nephew, and a poor widow's son, I
shall have to favor him, and pay him
wages, or folks will talk. Boys that
work for me must be louyh! I don't
want anything to do with him him!'
Then he said aloud, 'But you arc
kind o' weakly ! You ain't stubbin
enough to take hold and do real
work ! You always have been puny !'
It was Wallaco's turn to smile.
'"rnn lilomn mo fnr nnt linvintr crnno
to work before ; and now you say I
am not able to wdtk.'
Undo Bent wasn't pleased to be
convicted of inconsistency in this
easy, ofl-hand way by a school-boy
'There may be some things you
can do,' he said ; 'but my work is
man's work. I have man's work
enough, if you could do that.'
'I am sure I can do somcthiug at
it, and I don't expect more pay than
I can earn.'
Uncle Bent was afraid he had
already said too much. 'I shall
havo the family on my hands if I
givo him the least encouragement;
that's what the widow wants 1' tho't
he. So he hastened to reply to the
boy's last remark.
'Here's a man's job, right here. I
want to build a barn ; and I've been
wondering how I should get rid of
this bowlder. If you want to tacklo
that, you can !'
As the rock was large, and "Wal
lace looked quite small. beside it, the
old man smiled again at the grotes
queness of the proposal.
'Very well Wallace replied, 'I'll
take hold if you'll pay me by the
'No, no !' cried Uncle Bent, grow
ing good-natured over what he
considered a capital joke. 'Take it
by the job, and then you can be as
long as you please about it. Lift a
little in the forenoon, sit down in
the shadow of it and cat your dinner,
then lift a little more in the after-
'What shall I do with it when I
take it away?' Wallace asked.
'I don't care ; only get it off from
'And what do you propose to give
for the job?'
'Ten dollars,' said the old man,
promptly, for he had already calcu
lated that it would cost much more
than that to drill the rock and break
it up with blasting powder.
Til think about it,' said Wallace,
after a little hesitation.
Uncle Bent laughed. But there
was something in the boy's face he
'He can't be iu earnest,' he said to
himself, and ho thought it wise to
add, Til give you six weeks to do it
in ; say, till the first of June.'
'All right,' said the boy. 'Mean
while isn't there some other liltlo
job you'd like to have mo try my
hand at? There's all that brush
back there which the woodchoppers
have left; wouldn't you like to have
me tako that away ?'
'What will you give?'
'Xothing 1'said tho old man,shortly.
'That isn't very large pay,' tho boy
'I know it,' said his uncle. 'The
brush can bo burnt right where it is,
and the ashes arc worth somcthiug
on tho land. Beside?, some of the
large limbs will cut up into good
'Well,' Wallace replied, after u
little meditation, Til take the bowl
der, and I'll burn the brush-heaps on
your land, and leave you the ashes.
You shall givo mo ten dollars for
the rock, and -what wood I choose to
cut out of the brush. Is that fair?
'Well, fair enough,' the old man
was obliged to admit. 'But if you
are in earnest, I must say you aro a
blamed fool 1'
'That's my lookout,' laughed Wal
lace, starting to walk toward the
'And see here!' cried his uncle,
'you are not to damage the trees, or
endanger the corded wood by your
Of course not,' consented Wallace,
without looking back.
'lie talks that way just to carry
out the joke,' thought Uncle Bent.
'He don't act like it, though. See
here !' he again called out, 'I suppose
you know there's only one way of
moving this rfrTck ?'
'You suggested lifting,' said Wal
lace, smiling over his shoulder.
It will take a quantity of powder,
and a good many days' work,' f-aid
the old man, anxious to get at the
boy's real intentions.
'I haven't any money to buy pow
der, or to hire men ; so I shall have
to try other means,' Wallace replied.
'Do you mean it ?' cried Imr uncle,
'I am going to try,' said Wallace.
'But what how how aro you
going to manage?'
'I can't say until I have studied
into the matter a lillle And again
Wallace walked on toward the
Uncle Bent also went off, irritated
and puzzled. He was really inclined
to set the boy down for a fool ; and
he was confirmed in this opinion, on
coming out again after dinner, and
finding what Wallace had been
He had got another boy to help
him ; a tall, gawky fellow, whom
Uncle Bent recognized as Simple
Jack one of those weak-minded
youths who are to be found in almost
any village. He was dragging brush
from the land and placing it in piles
near the bowlder.
'Go'n' to have Fome fun,' he said,
when tho old man asked him what
he was about.
'What sort of fun?' Uncle Bent
'Go'n' to make a big firo, an' burn
up the rock,' replied Simple Jack.
'Burn up tho rock!' growled the
old man, with angry impatience.
'That nephew of mine is certainly a
fool, and ho has taken another fool
lie walked ofl toward the woods,
where he saw Wallace disentangling
The boy looked up from his work,
wiped his brow under his old hat
brim, and turned a red and sweaty
face toward his uncle.
'So ! you're goiug to bum up the
bowlder, are you?' cried the old
man, with somewhat savage sar
casm. 'That's a bright idee?'
'I didn't sav I was going to burn
it up,' Wallace replied, embarrassed
'Simple Jack eays so.'
'Simplo Jack isn't tho boss of this
Wallace gave a pull at a large
branch ; and then added in a rather
dry, drawling tone, 'But I won't
dispute what he says. I've been
thinking about that bowlder a good
deal, uncle. I can't tell yet what
I'm going to do, for I'm not sure my
experiment will succeed.'
'Well, mabby you know what you
are about; but I doubt it And
with a scowl and a puzzled expres
sion, tho old man went o(T to his mill.
He thought a good deal that after
noon about bowlderp, his brother's
poor widow and his nephew Wal
lace, Simple Jack and the problem
of using fire to remove rocks. He
finally became so worked up by his
thoughts that he left his business at
an unusually early hour and went
His mind was not at all relieved
to find that the boys had actually
built a raging firo of brush against
a broad side of the rock.
Nor, I must say, was Wallace at
all pleased to sec his undo approach
ing. The critical moment in his
experiment had arrived; and, altho'
he felt reasonably certain of success,
the old man's presence made him
But then he rctlccted, it would be
pleasant to have him there to wit
ness his triumph.
Wallace was adding bits of dry
brush to the fire immediately beside
the rock, while Simple Jack was
bringing water from Uncle Bent's
well and tiling tubs.
What's the water for?' the old
mau demanded of the tall, awkward
'To put out the rock when it burns
too fast,' replied Simplo Jack, lug
ging his pails. 'Goin' to havo great
'So you're re'ly trying the lire!
cried Uncle Bent, approaching the
scene of tho experiment. 'I don't
see that the bowldor has burnt up
much yet !'
'No, not yet. It is getting pretty
hot, though, and we have plenty
more brush, you see replied Wal
lace. 'It will be some time before you
need the water if it is to put the
rock out when it burns too funt, as
Jack nays,' observed the sarcastic
'Jack don't got things quite right,
though I've tried to explain them to
him,' replied Wallace 'We phall
need the water pretty soon, I think.
That will do, Jack! Now stand by
that tub, and do just as I tell you.'
There was a tub on each side of
the fire, which was now rapidly
dying away. Instead of replenish
ing tho fire, Wallace hauled what
was left of it quickly away from the
rock with an iron rake.
'Now dash on !' he cried ; and set
tho example of throwing water from
one of the tuba upon the heated face
of the porous rock.
Jack hurled water from the other
tub. It was cold water from the
well. As it struck the bowlder, it
hissed and Rtcamed furiously.
Uncle Bent stepped back to avoid
getting spattered. He had hardly
stationed himself at a safe distance
when he was startled by a succession
of sharp reports. Crackcrack
'I van !' he cried ; 'the bowlder is
Hying to pieces !'
Crack crack again. Then, after
a little while, the reports grew'dull,
and ceased. But, in the meanwhile,
ii:ikes and masses of the rock had
broken away and fallen; some light
fragments Hying across the fire, aud
lighting at his feet.
'Stop now !' cried Wallace. 'Save
the water, and put on tho brush
He shoved what was left of the
fire back against the rock, and in a
short time there was another brave
'I doclaro, nephew,' said Uncle
Bent (he had never called him neph
ew before), 'I believe you'll do it !'
'I know I Bhall,' laughed the ex
cited Wallace. 'It's only the surface
of the rock that's cooled by the
water, and we'll havo it heated up
'But what made you think of it?'
Uncle Bent wished to know.
'Why, I knew perfectly well that
heat expands all such substances,
while cold contracts them ajrain ;
and when they expand suddenly and
unequally, they break. And once,
when our class in natural philosophy
was reciting, the teacher told us how,
when the great firo was in Boston,
granite fronts flow to pieces, espe
cially if a column of water struck
them when they were hot. I remem
bered it when you sr.id you wanted
to get rid of the bowder ; and when
I saw that the rock was quite porons,
and saw also the brush-heaps, I con
cluded I would take the job.'
Uncle Bent had conceived a sud
den respect for his nephew. That
respect was heightened considerably
four days later, when he went out to
look at tho completely demolished
bowlder, and the following dialogue
'Well, nephew, you've got some
pretty cood heaps of stone here. I'll
save you the further trouble of tak
ing them away.'
'But I don't want you to save me
the trouble,' said Wallace.
'What do you mean to do with
'cm?' Uncle Bent asked in surprise.
'Sell 'em !' said Wallace.
'Sell 'em?' echoed the old man.
'What are they good for?'
'Good for wall-stone; especially
for the foundation of a barn if any
body is going to build one right on
the spot.' And Wallace turned up
a keen eye at his nnclc.
I am to buy 'em of
Thejr are worth more to you
than to anybody else. But if you
don't want them, I've talked with
the carpenters; I know who will
Uncle Bout was astonished, but
Well, What do you ask for 'em?'
Mr. Wilson looked at them thn
forenoon ; he said they were worth
ton dollars to you ho would give
me five, and haul them away.'
'Well, well, nephew ! it's a sharp
bargain you aro driving with your
old uncle! But it's all right. You
shall hare your ten dollars for
breaking up tho rock, aud ten mora
for tho rock now it is broken. And
I'll tell you what! Como and work
for me. You may chooso your placo
iu the store or in the mill. I
guess a boy with such a head as
yours on his shoulders can be made
'You are too late,' replied the
nephew. 'I've just engaged myself
to a friend of Mr. Wilson's. I am
going to be an architect.' , F. T.

The .11 Ih ltrr' Cow.
An exchange tells a droll story of
aclergyman's experiment and how
it ended :
Some years ago there lived iu
Central New York a very worthy
find rcjpeclnblo djvine knowu as
Father (Joss. He had a hired mau
named Isaac, who always obeyed
orders without question.
Father Gosh bought a cow one
day which proved refractory when
milked, refusing to surrender tho
lacteal fluid, although Isaac used all
the persuasive arts of which ho was
master. He finally reported her
delinquencies to his master.
Well, Isaac,' said he, 'go to the
barn and got thoso pieces of new
Isaac obeyed ; tho cow was driven
into the stable, tied with a piece of
rope, when the reverend came out
armed with a knife.
'Now,' he exclaimed to Isaac, 'I
will get on the cow's back and you
tie my feel beneath her, theu you go
on with your milking, and with my
weight on her back she must give
down her milk.'
Isaac obeyed. The feet were
tied, tho pail got, and milking com
menced. But bossy objected, aud plunged
wildly about. The stable was low
and the reverend's head was fear-
fnlltr I IniiMiiit.l (fill It.t... Ijniif f
bawled he, 'cut the rope.'
Isaac seized the knife and cut
not the rope which tied tho mas
ter's feet, but the one that tied the
cow. The stable gate was opcii.also
the yard gale.
Away darted the frantic cow, tho
terrified mau on her back, helplessly
roaring: 'Stop her, stop her!'
While madly careering down the
road he mot a parishioner, who ex
cilcrily called: 'Why Mr. Goss,
where are you going ?'
'Only God and this cow knows
groaned he; 'I don't,'
The animal was finally caught and
tho man released, much frightened
