sorts. I lie reason ol tlK iihcoinion.-
nMe filling in Ills niinil was this;
That inonmijr tlie boys bad proposed
Imlkllng a snow fort on the hill near
the seliool-hoiise. For some days tin'
weather bad ben very 'oderate,"
as people in the country express it.
arid the snow had become of Just the
light consistency ttrll into Kails, and
thus facilitate the bnlWitlg of a snow
luit in capital style. John lad fallen
in with tlie plan very eagerly, lie
loved sport of that kind as well a- any
boy in the school. When Is- plawl
l,e' threw all his energlM lute U
sport, ami was consequently a son el
a leader in all the MlHMeiHtjruetS lllC
deiil toAhool life. And I am glad to
eny that he studied in very inncli the
same way as lie played ; lie made no
half wow about It, out got his lessons
Uiomighly anJ well. Probably Ills
relish lor plav gave bln a keener ap
petite lor his studies. 1 have often
noticed that those hoys who play lest.
.-tndy liest. No those toys who play
most, however, for souie boy think Ol
nothing hut play.
As the plan was propo-cd In the
morning that they might have time to
build the fort in the hour given them
at noon to eat their lunch during the
forenoon recess, and devote tlie entire
hour to work on tlie fort, and com
plete it. if possible, before the alwr
iioou school hours began, that it might
lie ready tor use next day. Nearly all
the large hoys bad a hard lesson in
arithmetic that forenoon. The teach
er had told them that three of tlie
hardest probtems most be worked out
uu their slates and brought fur luspec
liou at recitation time. If not Cor
rectly done, time nin-t l' taken from
the hour's nooning to study on them.
Tlie boy thonglitof the snow fort to
be Built, w id applied themselves dili
gently to their lessons'. John took bis
slate 'and worked away lui-iiy. lie
fore recitation came he had cpntmered
all lllftlculties, and had the knotty
problems written down for the teach
erNln.spe.Tlon. J " .
Kecitatiou came, ueiooh ma emu:
and started for the class whicli was ;
forming on tlie floor. He had got
nearly to his place when he saw that
the examples lie had wrltteu down so
lareftiltv were gone rubbed out en-.
tirely, 'lie stared at tlie blank slate
n itli a look of complete bewilderment.
Ue bad taken unusual pain- with
them. When he looked last they were
certainly there. Now they wen-gone.
Ititt who had rubbed them out f home
one must have done so. He could not
remember that any one had been to
his seat, and yet some person had
tound and taken the opportunity to
blot the result of bis morning's labor.
I had the example on my slate,
sir." he said to the teacher. "They
are gone. Some one lias rubbed them
Who lias niblied tliem out;-' ask
ed tlie teacher, in bis sharp, stern way.
I dou't know, sir, ' answered
"Are yon sure yon line! them work
ed out correctly ?" asked the teacher.
"Yea, sir." answered John, flushing
up at the doubt implied by the teach-i
er's one and question.
Very well, as you are Unable to
produce them, ami can accuse no one
of having rubbed them out. you may
toy in at noon and work on them."
John was p mi proud to say a word

So he took his seat in silence, resolved

Let me mention n rather funny inci

In the first place you must know that
all the young Harpers are athletics.
Muscularity, by the way. seems to come
to them as a legitimate inheritance.

"Ken-hung." llu' foreman was
thrown; and the publisher stood calm

brief but spirited dialouge occurred
with the next comer, and -o the thing
went on until four had found their
knock oil' terminate in a knock down.
The re-t went salisliedly back to their
work, and Mr. Uarper 'pulling oil' Ills
