His name was Jacob, Ik Lad been Lis
father's before bias, and bis father's
fatner's. The Storms were a hard-working,
money-getting race. Jacob Storm,
s the father of our hero, constantly said
that "he. couldn't Jwe why under tho
shining sun a man needed an education;
t any rate, more'n 'nough to reckon his
crops and cattle." , Jacob, the younger,
had once expressed a desire to attend
school out of town; but Storm, senior,
- killed his ambition in that respect with a
The inhabitants of Putneyville were
not all conservatives of the Storm order.
Sons of rich farmers were in college,
v daughters of bard-working fathers and
mothers, were away at school, and Put
neyville felt their influence when they
camo home for a vacation. One of the
gayest, brightest, prettest girls in town
was bailie Hirers. Her father had a
poorer farm and fewer bonds than his
neighbor Jacob Storm, but the Hirers
family worshipped another idol. From
tne mower down every one valued a
trood education. The father hod been
denied it, as he was the eldest of a large
family, and compelled to aid in suDnort-
ing the rest. He was a man of excellent
natural ability, and extravagantly fond
The boys of the family were com celled
to work their vi ay through college, and
Haliie, the jovial, was determined to fol
low their example.
No wonder Jacob Storm, junior, loved
Sallie. He had lived near her for years,
had carried ber dinner pail back and
forth, for her, had purposely misspelled
words to let her pass above him, and in
all her maddest pranks, be had rejoiced
while others blamed. When one of the
neighbors gave a party, the verbal invi
tation was generally, "Bailie, and the
rest of the boy s.

M had once called her "Will o'-tho-wisp,"
I and the name fitted her so well that the
I boys took it up. The wildest colt on the
farm would ouoy Sallie; she feared noth
ing, went and came as ahe pleased, and
did more work in one morning than her
mother and Huldah, the maid, could pos
sibly do together, ;
Naturally, this warm-hearted, active,
cheerful girl, was the light of her fath
er's eves. He could not send her away
from him, like the boys, not even for the
coveted education. For three years in
her teens she bore the restraint as meek
ly as possible; but the fourth year could
not be borne. How' much the girl had
suffered in secret, no one knew.
"Father," she said one day, as she
sprang from her saddle, "my mind is
made up. I shall go into the mill and
earn money enough to attend school."
"But mother -an't spare you, my

always wanted to study, herself."
"Well, we seem to need yon here,
somehow," said the old gentleman, strok

"Yes, father, and you shall havo. me.
I can work hard, and come home to spend
every vacation; and won't you be glad to
Mr. Rivers led the colt away, and did
not answer. i '
"Why not?" he said to himself ; "why
shouldn't she have a fair chance? I
suppose I might sell off the meadow to
old Storm, and send my only girl away
in good shape; but it will spoil the farm,
and I hate to." -
He could not think of the house with
out her; he dreadod the long winter
evenings, and the warm summer days,
' without his darling; and at last he sat
' down in one corner of the barn on an
old grindstone, which Sallie had often
turned for him. He sat there a long
time, trying to overcome his selfishness;
and at last, as he heard the girl's ringing
a voice calling him to supper, he rose up,
saying, ''"She's my only girl; and she
shall have a chance, come what will."
Tho boys were delighted. They were
proud of Sallie, and quite sure she would
do herself and the family credit. To be
sure, Tom's pride was hurt when ho heard
she was to work in the mill at Glenmere;
but the new house which Tom had urged
his father to build bad oost more than
they expected, and every year some new
"machinery must be purchased. It was
twenty miles to Glenmere twenty miles
,' from home love, care and comfort; but
Sallie did not falter. To be sure, it was
S trial to leave them all, A hard thing to
select from her little store of girl's be
longings; and a small room in a boarding-house
would never afford the delight
that ber own large, sunny chamber did.
Sallie felt a thousand tears, but did not
shed one, although her mother and Hul
dh wept profusely as the carriage drove
away, with Sallie a father on the back
seat with her, and Jacob Storm in front
with Bailie's brother Dike.
"I wish I had her chance," said Jacob.
as the father and daughter talked in low
tones on tire back seat. .
"Great chance,", said Dike, "to go
down there and work among all sorts,
and never have any music evenings, or
any home, or "
Dike paused; his scelings were too
much for hiin, and yet he would not let
Jake Storm see a tear in his eyes.
"It's a chance to make yourself some
thing better than a drudge, a chance to
see and know what is going on in the
great world. Beading is good. Dike
but seeing is a million times better.
Jacob read early and late, he thought
and studied; but after all, he knew that
the discipline which Tom and Joe Rivers
were having would be a great blessing to
him. His one dread was that Sallie
might consider him inferior to her.
"She shall not get before me if I die try
ing," he said.'

A room-mate was impossible, as she
desred to spend all her spare moments

About this time she wrote to Tom : "It

Brave little Sallie! The days and
weeks flew by, and found her at her post.
She only saw the hard daily toil, only
felt the bonds which kept her close until
she could join the girls who quietly and
easily walked the paths of knowledge.
She did not know that her example cave
Joe new courage, and kept Tom from
many a "college lark ;" she never dreamed
that Jacob Storm was making a man of
himself for her sake: she could not see
the power she exercised over Dike, who
was inclined to be a little wayward;
' she never guessed that her devotion to
self-culture and study had stimulated
some of her associates to ro and do like
wise. Her brief vacations were seasons
of joy. Jacob Storm wished tbey might
last forever. He, too, was hard at wo k;
and one day, when he and Sallie had
discussed the merits of various authors,
and compared notes concerning their
studies, Sallie's outburst of praise for
his achievements drew from mm an
avowal of his love.
"Why, Jacob," said sua regretfully,
I never thought of you in that way. I
should as soon fancy Tom marrying
"You think I am clumsy and slow,"
he said, "or perhaps stupid and ignor
ant, because I remain here whon others
go away; they havo educated themselves,
with fate and fortune to aid them. I
have done it thus far against fate, and
without fortune. I shall some day make
the world hear of me; how, when, or
where, I do not know, but it will come."
. "I believe you, Jacob," said Sallie,
"and I am proud of you; but love is
something I know nothing of, and until
I have finished my course as a student, I
must put pleasure of all kinds out of my
head. Don't sulk, Jacob; I am not
heartless, only ignorant. Come, saddle
Tarn O'Shanter, and let us have one of
our mad rides to Sparkling Spring; it
will be something to remember when I
am grinding at the mill again."
Jacob oboyed her. Her wishes had
been his law for years, and he was manly
enough to be proud of it. ,
At last the goal was won. Sallie was
in college, devoting herself to her oher-
lKbed books, and Jacob still worked as
he had done before, now blaming himself
for his folly in regarding his father's
wishes, now working at his books with
the desperate energy of one who has
staked all on success.
Every Sunday he visited Glenmere
with Dike, but no longer sjient his time
witn Sallie. At last a change came;
Jacob Storm, Sr., was gathered to his
fathers, and bis son was free.
Dike wrote to his sister in boyixh fash
ion : "Old Storm has gone, and Jake
mourns for him as if ho had been loving
and tender, instead of a stiff old miser.

Sallie's last year of college life was
drawing near its close, and the students
were arranging for their separation, when
an invitation was sent them to attend a
lecture by an eminent gentleman who
had been recently appointed to a profes
sorship in a Western university.
"Going, Miss Rivers?" asked a senior.
as she peeped in at the half-open door of
bailie s room.
"No, I think not. I shall employ the
time in writing home.
"Do go. They tell mo Professor

eral distinguished gentlemen. The
speaker's face was partly hidden by the

Sallie's heart gave a quick bound; for
there before her stood her neighbor,
friend and lover.
He did not seem to see her; his sub
ject engrossed his entire attention, Sal
lie listened with pleasure. The physical
training of the past added strength to
his mental acquirements, and his clear,
manly voice charmed all who listened to
"Isn't he fine looking?" whispered
one. "What a splenkid type of man
hood I" said another. "He understands
himself perfectly, as well as his subject,"
said a third.
When the speaker closed, the applause
was emphatic and prolonged. Sallie sat
motionless. Surprise and pleasure
mingled with a thousand memories. Pro
fessor Storm did not heed it. He was
looking at a bright face just before him,
and answered the congratulations of his
friends in an absent manner.
"Pardon me," he said to the president;
"I recognize, an old schoolmate yon
der." "Ah, indeod! that is Miss Rivers, a
yeung lady of remarkable energy and
unbounded perseverance; she stands at
the head of her class."
"I'm so glad, so very glad," was all
Sallie could say.
"Are you? Then help me to escape
from all these eyes, and let me give you
the latest tidings from home."

"Well,' no; I can't say as I nm at pres

If there is one pursuit which above all
others is so peaceful in its nature as not
to call for the services of armed men, it
is the climbing of a tree for the purpose
of gathering chestnuts. Hardly any two
things can be more thoroughly incom
patible than nuts and pistols. The club
which is a weapon altogether different in
its character and its aims from the pistol,
has a sort of relation to the business of
gathering chestnuts. But the club is
used not so much by the boy who climbs
the chestnut tree as by the one who
stands on the ground and awaits the
fall of the nuts. To fling a club up
among the branches of a chestnut tree
sometimes has the effect of bring
ing chestnuts down. More often
the effect is not felt on the chest
nuts, but rather on the head of the boy
who sends the club up. When in its
descent it stuns him by a blow on the
skull or sets the blood flowing from his
cruelly bumped nose, the boy mutters a
quotation from that old proverb which is
to the effect that whatever goes up is sure
to come down. The club is as clumsy a
weapon as it is antiquated. Clubs can
not be carried in hip-pockets with any
great degree of convenience. According
to the pictures in the Sunday school
books, Cain slew Abel with a club. But
the pictures do not represent Cain as
drawing the weapon from his hip-pocket.
Even New York policemen do not carry
clubs in their hip-pockets, but hold them
in their hands ready for instant service.
The hip-pocket is a fashionable neces
sity, and no clothier is up to the de
mands of the age who makes trousers
without it. All classes and conditions of
masculine society must wear this pocket.
The octogenarian grandfather, the peace
ful clergyman, the scholarly professor,
the boisterous politician, the growing
youth and the little boy in his first trou
sers, must alike havo a hip-pocket.
While there are many purposes for
which a pocket of this kind is exceed
ingly convenient, there is no denying the
fact that it was originally invented by
some war-like person as a handy place
! for carrying a pistol. Although there
are many wearers of this kind of pocket
who carry no pistols, yet there are many,
especially young men, who think the
pistol quito as much of a necessity as
the pocket. Therefore, they seldom go
unarmed. Tho pistol is at much at
home in their hip-pocket as eye-glasses
are on the noses of near-sighted
men, or - bangs on the foreheads
of pretty girls. The young men
who thus stuff pistols into their
i pockets are not bloodthirsty follows.

' Most of them are poor shots in pistol
practice and could not with the most
approved form of modern weapon hit a
cat across the street. They have no
definite idea that ruffians will attack
them with a view to taking their lives,
nor have they positively come to the
conclusion as to what they would do in
! the event of any such attack being made.
They think they would bravely stand
I their ground and discharge from four to
i six balls into tho vitals of the intruding
! rufliun. The probability is that they
would run away.
A day or two ago the youthful son of a
New York capitalist inflicted on himself
a needless and dangerous woaud. He
had gone up a tree to gather chestnuts.
He fell, and in his fall discharged the
pistol which happened to be in his hip
pocket and which he had taken up the
tree with him. At first it was reported
that he was dead, and for some time it
seemed probable that he would die. Had
he died his life would have been sacri
ficed to a foolish and unnecessary prac
tice. If he lives he will carry with him
the indelible mark of his folly. Had thero
j been a bear up the chestnut tree or a
I squad of hostile Indians concealed
among tho branches the pistol might
: have lieen a necessary instrument of self-
defense instead of being one of self-tor-
' ture. There are thousands of lads all
ovor the country who carry pistols just
tut this unwise youth did. They go
armed to school, to the store, to seo their
girls, to walk on the streets and to en
gage in the various duties and pleasures
of life. When they have nothing else to
do they pull out the pistol to see if it
needs cleaning or to bo sure that the
trigger works properly. Then they
point the weapon at their little brother
or sister, purely as a bit of the
most hilarious fun. When the
inevitable bullet crashes through
brother or sister, and a bleeding little
corpse lies on the floor, there are tears
and remorse and exclamations of "didn't
know it was loaded," and all that. The
carrying of a concealed pistol is by law
an offense against the public peace. It
is a great pity that the law is almost a
dead letter. Especially about election
times it is bad to carry pistols. The
angry passions may rise and shots may
be fired with disastrous effect. There is
not one case in ten thousand where a
man who carries a pistol has reasonable
need to use it. As for the boys, they
havo no more need to carry pistols about
i them than to arm themselves with Gat
1 ling guns, auu uip-puctt.et is a iiimiiy
i: mi.. l i -i
appendage to the raiment; but it serves
quito as well for the stowage of the
peaceful handkerchief as for an armory.
Better sew it up than carry a murderous
weapon in it.

above; bake until apples are tender;
serve hot with hard sauce, or with cream

Oyster Toast. This is a nice little dish
for luncheon or a lato supper. Scald a

take them out and pound in a mortar,
when they form a paste, add a little rich
cream and some pepper. Get ready
some thin, neat pieces of toast moistened
slightly with boiling water and spread
with lresh butter. Spread the oyster
paste thickly upon tho toast, put a thinly
cut round of lemon upon each piece, and
arrange them on a platter garnished with
parsley. Serve very hot.
Gingerbread. Before the buckwheat
season fairly begins, fresh gingerbread
is nice with coffee for breakfast; it is
convenient to moke it sometimes when
you haven't bread onough for breakfast
and dinner both. A simple way of
making it is to take one teaenpful of mo
lasses, four tablespoonfuls of hot butter
or lard, stir in as much flour as you can,
then put iu a tcaspoonf ul of saleratns, a
heaping one of ginger, in a teacup and
fill the cup almost full of boiling water;

contrary would happen if he went east,
for he would have one more sunrise and

have ou exhibition there. Passing in at the main
entrance we make our way to the northern gallery.
At the head of the broad staircaso our attention is
first atttacled by the magnificent display of furni

we may travel from west to east. The exhibit is di

The floors are covered with rich brussels carpet,

birdseye maple polished as highly as a mirror. The
front upper ortiou hss double doors of plate glass,
while above, heavy carvings give to that portion ex
quisite finish of superior design and workmanship.
The lower portion has double panel doors, heavily
carved and mounted with silver trapping. Next
come an ingenious scrctsry with circular sibling

are moat conveniently arranged. As soon as the
cover is raised the writing desk cau le drawn out so

with wine colored satin upon an Kgypttau
frame and is the favorite piece of furniture
with the ladies, who are the best Judges of
these magnificent articles. In the- next booth we
find a superb bedroom set of modern and unique
pattern, ornamented with elwny panels aud massive
carvinK of black walnut. The bureau consists of a
main body of throe drawers, with silver ids ted han

This is surmounted by a fine slab of Tennessee

the booth, and receivesltashare of admiration. Aside
from this the company exhibit several articles be

we will mention a beautiful patent rocker and foot

of IcHaer importance go toward giving a finish to the
magnificent display. We have thus given a very

has made during these years in order to show what
enterprise and energy combined will do. It started
in on a email scale and gradually expanded and add
