Strong and Steady
By HORATIO ALGER, JR.
In due time, to Joshun's great delight
tho lottery ticket Touched him. It was
several days In coming, and he had A
most given It up, but the sight of It rnls
cd his spirits to the highest pitch. It
peemed to him the first Rtep. to a fortune,
He began at once to indulge in dazzling
visions of what ho would do when tne
prize came to hand; how the "old man'
would be astonished and treat him with
Increased respect ; how he would go to the
city and have a good time seeing the
Hons, and from henceforth throw off the
galling yoke of dependence which his fath
it's parsimony had made it so hard to
Whenever he was by himself, he used
to pull out the ticket and gaze at it with
the greatest satisfaction, as the key that
was to unlock the portals of fortune, In
dependence and happiness.
But at length the long-expected letter
nrrived. Joshua did not like to open it
in the postodice, lest .It should attract the
nttentlon of the postmaster. He there
fore withdrew to n place where he was
not likely to be disturbed, and with trem
blinsr fingers opened the letter. Some-
tlntig dropped out.
"I wonder if it Is n check?'' thought
Joshua, stooping over and picking it up.
Hut no, it was an announcement of the
drawing. Joshun's numbers for each
loltery ticket contains t)-ec numbers
were 9, 15, 50. But of the thirteen lifky
numbers drawn out of sixty-five, neither
of them was one.
Slowly it dawned upon Joshua that he
had drawn nothing, that his five dollars
had been absolutely thrown away. Vint
there was a letter. Perhaps this would
explain it. Joshua read as follows:
"Dear Sir We regret to say that we
are unable to send you a prize this time.
We hope, however, you will not be dis
couraged. Some of our patrons who have
been most fortunate have commenced ny
being unlucky. Indeed, singularly enough,
this Is a general rule.
"Hoping to hear from you again, and
to send you in return better news, we
subscribe ourselves, very respectfully,
"GRABB & CO."
The effect of Joshua's ill success was
to make him very despondent. He thought
of all he had intended to do, and now
bis castles had crumbled, and all in con
sequence of this letter. He had been so
sanguine of success. Now he must write
to Snm that his visit to New York was
indefinitely postponed that is, unless he
could induce his father to provide nim
with money enough to go. The prospect
was not very encouraging, but he felt des
perate, and he determined to make the
attempt. Accordingly, just after supper,
he detained his father, just as be was
returning to the store, and said:
"Father, I wish you'd let me go to
New York on a visit."
"What for?" asked Mr. Drummond, ele
vating his brows.
"Because I'm eighteen years old, and
I've never been there yet."
"Then, if you've gone eighteen years
without seeing the city, I think you can
go a while longer," said his father, un
der the impression that he had made a
vitty remark. But Joshua did not ap
preciate the humor of it.
"I've lived in Staplcton ever since I
was born," grumbled Joshua, "and have
got tired of it. I want to see something
"Do you? Well, I'm sure I've no objec
tion." "May I go, then?"
"Yes; but, of course, you will pay your
"How can I?" exclaimed Joshua, in nn-g.-y
disappointment. "I have no money."
"Then you can save up your allowance
till you have enough."
"Save up on twenty-five cents a wecK !
1 couldn't go till 1 was an old man!"
"I know of no other way," said Mr.
Drummond, with provoking indifference,
"unless you earn the money in some wav."
"You treat me like a little boy!" said
"You are better oil than I am. I have
to- work for all I get. You get your board,
clothes and pocket money for nothing."
"Other boys go to New York when they
are much younger."
"I have told you you can go when you
like, but you mustn't expect me to supply
Mr. Drummond put on his hat and
cioRsed the street to the store, leaving
Jotbua In a very unfillal frame of mind.
Two days later two women entered Mr.
Drummond's store. One was Joshun's
customer and she wore the same shawl
which she had purchased of'hlm. It nap
pened that Walter was out, but Mr.
Drummond and Nichols were both behind
"Have yon got any more shawls like
this?'' asked the first lady, whom we will
call Mrs. Blake. "Mrs. Spicer, who U a
neighbor of mine, liked it so well she
wants to get another Just like it."
"Did you buy this shawl of uoV" nuk
ed Mr. Drummond.
"Yes, sir. I bought It about a fort
night ago, and paid five dollars for It."
iim.,. iinllnrs! There must be some
mistake. We never sell such a shawl asJ
that for less than ten uoiiars.
"I- can't help it," said Mrs. Blake, posi
tively. "I bous"1 lt were' and Paid ave
dollars for It."
"Why, those shawls cost me seven dol
lars and a half at wholesale. It Is not
likely I would sell them for five. Mr.
Nichols," said Mr. Drummond, "did you
sel this lady the shawl she is wearing,
for fivo dollars?"
"No, sir; I hove not sold a shawl- I'ke
that for two months. I know the price
well enough, and I wouldn't sell It for
lest than ten dollars."
"I didn't buy It of him. I bought It cf
n boy," Bald Mrs. Blake.
"It muBt have been that stupid Con
rad," exclaimed Mr. Drummond, angrily.
Walt till he comes In, and I'll haul b'm
over the coals." .
"Then you won't Jet my friend have
mother like It for Ore dollars?"
"No," said Mr. Drummond. provoked
" I' don't do business that way. I've lost
nearly three dollars by that shawl of
yours, lou ought to mako up the whole
sale price to me."
"I shan't do It," said Mrs. Blake. "If
you've made a mistake, It's your lookout.
I wasn't willing to pay more than fho
The two ladles were about to leave the
store when Mr. Drummond said: "The
boy will be back directly. I wish you
would wait a few minutes, so that If he
denies it you can prove It upon him.''
"I've got a call to make," Bald Mrs
Blake, "but I'll come In again in about
They left the store, and Mr. Drummond
began to berate the absent Walter. He
was provoked to find that he had lost two
dollars and a half, and. If Walter fud
been In receipt of any wages, would have
stopped the amount out of his salary. Hit,
unfortunately for this plan of reprisal,
our hero received his board only, and
that could not very well be levied upon.
However, he might have somo money in
his possessiou, and Mr. Drummond decid
ed to require him to make up the loss.
"When did she say she bought the
shawl, Mr. Nichols?" asked his employer.
"About a fortnight ago."
"Will you look on the books, and see
tf you find the sale recorded? I am sur
prised that it escaped my attention."
Nichols looked over the book of sales,
and announced that no such entry could
be found. Mr. Drummond was surprised.
Though not inclined to judge others a.iy
too charitably, he had never suspected
Walter of dishonesty.
"Are you sure you, looked back far
enough?" he nsked.
"Yes," said Nichols; "to make sure, I
looked back four weeks. The woman said
only a fortnight, you know."
"I know. Then lt seems Conrad ti&s
concealed the sale and kept the money."
"Perhaps," suggested Nichols, who
rather liked Walter, "he forgot to put it
. "If he did, he forgot to put tho money
iu the drawer, for the cash and the Bales
have always balanced. He's an ungrate
ful young rascal," continued Mr. Drum
mond, harshly. "After I took him Into
my house and treated Vhim as a son"
this was not saying much, if Joshua be
believed "he has robbed me In the most
Nichols was astonished by the evidence
against our hero. He did not like to
think him guilty, but lt certainly seemed
as if he must be.
"What are you going to do about it,
Mr. Drummond?" he asked.
"I suppose I ought to have him arrest
ed He deserves it."
"I hope you won't do that. He may be
able to explain it."
"If I do not proceed to extremities. It
will be on account of his relationship,
which I blush to acknowledge."
The time had been, and that not long
since, when Mr. Drummond felt proud of
his relationship to the rich bqulre Con
rad, of Willoughby; but that was before
his loss of property. Circumstances al
ter cases. Quite unconscious of the storm
that was gathering, Walter at this mo
ment entered the store.
"So you've got back?" said Mr. Drum-
mend, harshly. "You haven't been in
any particular hurry. However, that was
not what I wished to speak to you about.
W- have made a discovery since you went
out, and not a very agreeable one."
"I am sorry for that," saiu waiter, uot
knowing what else was expected of him.
"No doubt you are sorry," sncereu .nr.
Drummond. "I should think he would be.
eh, Mr. Nichols.?"
"I am sorry also," said ?niciiois, wno,
though rather weak-minded, was a good
hearted young man.
"So .am I sorry," said Mr. urutnmonu.
"If strikes me I have most reason to be
sorry, considering that the loss has fallen
on me. I have discovered how you have
repaid me for my kindness. You didn't
think I would find out, but your iniquity
has providentially come to light."
"I don't know what you are laiKing
about, Mr. Drummond," said Walter, im
patiently. "I wish you would stop talk
ing in riddles."
"Did you ever witness sucn nrazen ti-
frontery, Mr. Nichols?" demanded Mr.
Drummond, turning to bis head salesman ;
"even when he Is found out he brazens It
"Wouldn't It be as well to tell mm
what Is the matter, Mr. Drummond?"
mked Nichols, who wax In hopes our
hero would be able to prove his Innocence.
"To come to the point, aid you, or uiu
you not, a fortnight since, sell one of
those shawls, such as you see on the coun
ter, for five dollars?"
"I did not," said Walter, promptly.
"It mleht not have been exactly a fort
night. Have you sold such a shawl with
in four weeks?"
"I have not sold such a shawl since 1
have been In your employ, Mr. Drum
"You hear what he says, Mr. Nichols,"
said Mr. Drummond. "You see how he
adds falsehood to dishonesty. But that
Is not uncommon. It Is only what I ex
pected. Do you mean to say, Walter Con
rad, that you didn't sen sucn a bhuwi
for five dollars only half price and, in
stead of entering the sale, put the money
Into your own pocket?"
"I do deny it roost empuawcuny, r,
Drummond." said Walter, Impetuously,
"and I challenge you to prove It."
"r shall soon be able to prove It,' said
Mr. Drummond. "The lady who bought
iu. shawl came Into the store half an
hour since, and asked for another. When
T tnld her that It would cost ten uouars,
She said she only paid five for the one
she had on. She then told us tnai sue
bought It of you a lortnigut since.-
"There Is some mistake about this, Mr.
Drummond. She has made a mlstaW
She must have bought It somewhere else."
ah would not be likely to make such
a mistake as this. Besides, the shawl Is
like others I have. How do you account
for that?" queried Mr. Drummond, triumphantly.
"I don't pretend to account tor It, nna
don't feel called upon to do so. All I
have got to say Is that I did not Bell tho
shawl, nor pocket tho money."
'"Mr. Drummond, tho ladles lmvo re
turned," said Nichols.
"Aha J" said his employer, with exul
tation. "Now we will bo able to prove
your guilt, you young rascal! Hero Is
the lady who bought tho shawl of you."
Mrs. Blake and her friend, Mrs. Spicer,
hero cutorcd tho store. Mr. Drummond
went forward to meet them. Ills faco
Hushed, but he tried to look composed.
"I am glad to see yon back, ladles," ho
said. "You told me that you bought your
shawl of n boy?" turning to Mrs. Blake.
"Come forward, Conrad," said Mt.
Drummond, a malignant smllo overspread
ing his face. "Perhaps you will deny
now, to this lndy's faco fitlmt you Bold
her the shawl sho has on."
"I certnlnly do," said Walter. "I nev
er, to my knowledge, saw the lady before,
and I know that I did uot sell her ths
"What do you think of that, Mr. Nich
ols?" said Mr. Drummond. "Did you over
witness such unblushing falsehood?"
But here n shell was thrown Into Mr.
Drummond's camp by Mrs. Blake her
self. "The boy Is perfectly right," she said.
"I did not buy the shawl of him."
"Didn't you say you bought tho shawl
of the boy?" asked Mr. Drummond, with
a sickly hue of disappointment over
spreading his face.
"Yes; but It was not that boy. Com
to think of It, I believe it was your son,"
said Mrs. Blake. "Isn't he a little older
than this boy?"
"My sou Joshua!" exclaimed Mr.
"Yes, 1 think It must be he. He's got
rather an old-looking face, with freckles
and reddish hair; isn't so good-looking as
"Joshim !" repeated Mr. Drummond, be
wildered. "Ho doesn't tend in the store."
"It was about dinner time," said Mrs.
Blake. "He was the only one here."
"Do you know nrtythlng about this,
Mr. Nichols?" nsked Mr. Drummond
turning to his head clerk.
Light dawned upon Nichols. He re
membered now Joshun's offer to take his
place, and he felt sure in Ids own mind
who was the guilty party.
"Yes, Mr. Drummond," ho answered;
"about a fortnight ago. as Walter was
rather late in getting back, Joshua of
fered to stay in the store for a while. Ho
must have sold the shawl, but he must
have guessed at the price.".
"A mistake has been made," said Mr.
Drummond, hurriedly, to tho ladies, "a
mistake that you have profited by. I
shall not be able to sell you another shawl
for less than ten dollars."
The ladies went out, and Mr. Drum
mond and his two clerks were left alone.
"Mr. Drummond." said Walter, quiet
ly, "after what has happened, you will
not be surprised if I decline to remain
in your employ. I shall take the after
noon train to Willoughby."
He walked out of the store, and cross
ed the street to Mr. Drummond's house.

the news that liberty had shaken off her
shackles in the new world, that she had
taken her rightful place and that hcro-
I after the people would acknowledge the
power ot no ruler except such as might

ous scene in tho staid old Quaker town,
the last place in tho colonies where one
would have suspected a spark would be
given birth to light freedom's torch
throughout the Western Hemisphere. It
was on the 7th day of June, 1770, that
the delegates from the colonies sitting In
Congress In Philadelphia, considered the
following resolution, Introduced by Vir
ginia's statesman, Richard Henry Lee:
"Resolved, That tho United Colonies
tre and ought to bo free and independent
States and their political connection with
Great Britain is and ought to be dissolv
ed." There had been murmurings and threats
and calm expressions of determination.
But here was united action. Tho people,
by their representatives duly chosen, for
mally absolved themselves from allegiance
with tho mother country, and said to the
world that they had cast off their swad
dling clothes; they were now wholly able
to walk alone. On June 11, that famous
committee was appointed to frame tho

placed In broad light whenever we enjoy
the Illumination of electricity. The sec
ond rose to be President of tho nation

father of what tho world knows as the
Jeffersonlan Democracy. The fourth,
Puritan, patriot, leader, gave more In
moral force and determination, In knowl
edge of tho law and Its common sense
principles, than almost any man who as
sisted at the birth of the nation. The
fifth was the man of whom the majority
of people know comparatively little, and
yet thero was none who better deserve a
place of honor In the public mind. Emi
nent as a financier, a shrewd Judge of
human nature, his touch on tho helm of
state was exactly what was needed to
keep tjie young craft on her course. Jef

and be had no part In the acrimonies
which then prevailed. In a plain brick

In time on July 4 to cast Delaware's vote
In favor of independence. On that day,

Declaration of Independence was adopted
