Uncle Pete wns nuniiintiiig. How
ever, this was nothing new, aa ho liiul
done but little else since tho timo ho was
a. mito of a darky, watching tho sparks
ily up from the burning log heaps scat
l!reil over "old master's" now ground
aind die away in tho dusky spring even
ing. IIo would hit upon a stump with
4he dark, freshly plowed ground about
"him giving forth odors of earth and torn
jgreon roots, whilo tho frogs in tho shal
low nhining branch, marked with wil
Jows, sang a happy, monotonous refrain.
His kink3 wero turning from black to
jgyay and many a problem a3 knotty as
bm wool and just as powerless to bo
straightened had passed through his
"brain. Ilis great passion was wealth
"'twas tho only thing ho cared for. IIo
Qbml dreamed of it in boyhood it seemed
3i pity those log heap sparks wero nor
Teal gold had striven for it in his way
in manhood, and now that old ago had
$!gnn to pay court to him in a sly and
"wholly unaccountable manner ho still
dreamed of and strove for wealth. When
.a lxy ho would grasp ever' peculiar
.'looking rock lying in his path, with tho
tfiopo that it might bring hint a fortune.
Tho sun glancing on a piece of glass
would cause his lazy legs to move faster
ithnn was customary, for porhaps it
puiight bo n nugget of gold lying there
csjMjeially for him. L5ut ho found to his
-tlisnppointiuctil many times that "all
Avus not fold that glittered."
"Chicle Peter had never been taught to
iroad, nud wan too lazy to work hard. In
jlact, he shirked dreadfully. Liko "ole

grandson, .Marso Bob, as a cropper, and
invariably camo out in debt to him on
umnverugoof i0u year. Each Christ
.mas Marsc Bob would storm at him and
(threaten to send him away, but Undo
(Peter was sly and would "lay low" until
uMarso Bob's sweet lit tlo wife drove all
iiiugry thoughts from his mind, am then
ftio began to put in his best work, usually
(making sundry suggestions " 'buot do
(fattening horgs," an 1 ashes, salt, sul
jphur and copperas for tho hors mules
land colts, until Marco liob finally finish
ted u contract with him almost before
fthe thought of beginning had entered
(Ills mind. It would burst upon him each
(time liko a thunderbolt, and with an in
ttornal groan began the turning of now
(leaves. But those leaves became dog
tcaroil with too little turning and much
tfingering. So Undo Peter lived on at
this kind benefactor's, with his progeny
of grandchildren and one unmarried
daughter, the idol of his heart.
Undo Peter was ruminating on this
Sviirm, (lump January day. Tho prospect
ifrout his cabin door did not invito very
jploasant thoughts, but ho was paying no
attention to tho gloom,
Tho clouds hung wet nud gray over
,tho Holds, roads and pine grove, which
Kva.1 the only green spot insight. A maul
lay before tho ilro hardening for tho next
ttlay'a work splitting rails. That was
jnothing to Undo Peter, either, for ho
'knew very well, tho sinner, ho would got
tout of half his work by sharinming
'wedges for tho other hands, making him
elf uselessly useful.
"Now, if I could dig into dat gully and
tflno a gole mine, wouldn't 1 bo rich?" hu
(mused. "Oret big peoses, big as my
jfwtu den 1 could sot up at tho big 'ousu
liko folks, and not work my poor olosoff
to doth," sighing, as he got up to turn
ihi.1 niatil. "But den dat's Marso Bob a
land, s'poso 'twould bo his golo. Nor dat
-ain't right, neither. What 1 Hue is mine.
'Ml 1 was to lino a quarter out yonder, I
"awoldn it would bo my quarter, and dat
fgolu mino would too." So soared hit
itkoughta to a realm where roads wero
lined with gold instead of red mud, and
Hialacca in tho places of pino trees faced
thein, and ho was the richest of all in
'tlint country, IIo was awakened from
'those yellow toned reveries by some one
Ihollowing; "Peter, you Poter-r, why
tdon't you answer nw'f'
Sir? rousing himself nud standing in
(liU doorway to soo Murso Bob on the
fence somo distance away.
"What uro you doing?"
"Burning iny maul for to-morrow."
"Well, you can do that to-night. You
always get mighty smart at the wrontf
time, anyway. Go on to tho house and
help the other boys shuck corn."
Undo Puter got up ami crossed tlx

came Frank's lazy tones from tho depths
of a feather bed, from whero ho could
just see Poter. whose shoes wero shining
brighter thaa his ebony face, sitting on
the woodbo.t nibbing away witli brush

"Bought it!'" w.th a proud glance.
"You ought to bo a good citizen with

"Well, mebbo so," brightening up.
"Do yon think so? I can't say, but 1

by tide, and shut up the blacking Im.x.

"Hand me that flask on tho table.
Now, hero i your smile," detaching tho
silver drinking cr.p from tho bottom of

into it, which ran out with a jolly gur

"You drink fust. Marse Frank." '
"Oh no, P.'ter, I never drink. I carry
it about in case of an accident."
"Well," smacking his black lips and
wrenching tho cup from tho pitcher of
water, "if 1 owned dat dream accidents
would bo forebher huppning," grinning
and bowing himself out. IIo turned his
oteps toward tho kitchen after leaving
Frank's room. There ho sat himself
down to wait for the coffeo pot. This
coffee p'it was a great consolation to
Unci" A'L.:-; ho never went to his work
w.t.iuiit firot draiuing it, even eating
tho grounds. It was too good to waste.
IIo wa;i a great deal more likely to be on
hand when breakfast was over than most
of tho iamily when it was ready.
It was raining and not only raining. 1
but pouring and had been for an hour.
Undo Peter tat in Trout of his huge fire
place, which was filled with burning
logs, and nodJled, whilo mammy pieced
up a quilt witli colors so startling, such
as pink and yellow, side by side, or green
and blue with each other vied. Their
pride and delight, a pieco of ebony hn
pudenco done up i:i checked homespun,
Bat by the little wi.idow reading. Labo
riously who spelled out the words, more la
boriously absorbed their meanings. Now
and then mammy would give a grant or
"dat's so," someiinies coming in at tho
most absurd times, for she never under
stood what Angelino was reading: there
was such an interval between each word,
tho ono had escaped her memory before
the other wan called out.
Uncle Peter still nodded and bobbed
his head around dangerously at times,
for it did seem that it would pop off. IIo
was thoroughly awako all at once. What
"How to get r-i-c-h. rich," drawled
Angelino. Undo Puter was all excite
ment in a moment and exclaimed fever
ishly, "Head on, uiggor!" Angy looked
up astonished: sho was not accustomed
to being addressed that way by hor ad
"Writo to J-a-ni-o-s n-a-r-l-i-n-g, Ilar
ling, C-o-r-t-l-a-n-t Cortleut street, Now
York; I duuno what dat street means
after dat word. It can't spell nuthin'
cordon to my notion. 1 reckin it must
mean, ah. I dnnno. Hit wns jist got thar
by mistake dat's hit. Dat typewriter got
jess a little too much onto dat."
"Ugh, humph!" assouted Uncle Peter
indifferently; but hi3 little black eyes
wore sparkling, and after a while ho got
up, stretched and looked at tho elements.
They wero clearing up a little; bo put
ting on his great coat, which struck his
"dumpity" little figure about tho beds,
ho sallied forth to tho preacher's, his
dearest friend and closo3t ally. He found ,
him at homo making foot mata, as ho ,
usually did in wot weather.
"Howdy docs" being over Undo Peter
set forth in a most cautious maimer to
feel around and leant what tho preacher
thought of tho scheme ho had hidden in
tho back part of his head.
"Brer Hamblotou, does you reckin
you will ebber git rich workin' 'mongst
"Whut! git rich? I ain't a-working
fur riches; I am workin' fur do Lord. Ef
ho wants mo to got rich ho will make
me, 1 reckin. And anudder thiug, I
never thought about it," replied tho un
worldly old fellow.
"Well, ef you will juss read hero in
dis nowspajmr you'll sua fiumpiu," pull
ing it out of his iocket.
"What's it 'bout?"
"Gittiu' rich," droppiug his voice to a
whisper. Brother llambloton pulled out
his brass rimmed glasos, put them on
his uoso and grasped tho ixqwr. Ho
scanned it closely for a whilo, and then
said: "Hit must bo this here, 'Riches
air very desirable things, but there is
something moro desirable yet, and that
is health. Now, this can bo obtained by
taking Green Le:tf Tonic'
"Ilolo on, Brer llambloton, you ain't
readin' tho right one; leastways it don't
sound liko dat whut Angelino wad," ex-'
daimed Uncle Poter in some alarm.
Was tho fortune which seemed in his
grasp to run through his fingers liko so
much water, only leaving them damp as
a sign it had Won there? I
"Well, how did it start, Brother Poter'i" ,
asked tho Reverend LVujainlu llamblo
ton, looking over his glasses in a grave
miinner, as much as to say, "Brother

I "All right, all right," hurriedly as
ri.sions of a' lost fortune again float be
fore him. Amiability being restored,
they worked and plotted together liko
tld cronicn should. Tho letter was writ
ten and posted; they had only to wait a
week or two brfore they could dress up
r.nd live liko folks in the big 'onse.
Uncle Peter began to wear "the big
gest'"air imaginable. Ho became busier
than ever and plagued Mnrae Bob al
most out of his wits. Tho negroes all
wondered what had got into Uncle
Peter. Ho usually bade them good
morning in tho pleasantcst manner, but
now it was with tho condescension of a
monarch. Angelino was no longer tho
"apple of his eye." She found herself
not noticed at all, and thereby became
sulky and switched about moro than
over whilo sho walked. But it all was
lost upon Undo Peter. IIo was going
to got rich in his old age, and that was
all he wanted. IIo dreamed of it at
night, and went a-day dreaming over it
Uncle Peter was too talkative, how
ever, to let his secret remain ono longer
than a few days. Ho had no idea ho
had ' let tho cat out of tho bag," but be
fore one week had expired all tho negroes
on tho plantation knew ho had discov
ered a method for getting nch, and all
wero on tho qui vivo for discovery, but
thoy did not let Uncle Peter havo an
inkling of their intentions.
Ono Saturday afternoon as tho clouds
in tho west began to loso some of their
exquisite coloring, for night was creep
ing on, all of tho hands, Undo Peter in
cluded, hail gathered about tho back
door of tho big house. All eyes were
centered upon Marso Bob, who stood on
tho stono steps with a stono jug in ono
hand and a cup in tho other. Every
face was wreathed in smiles at tho
thought of a dram. As M-arso Bob
poured out tho liquid which ran with
such a good old sound, "So good, good,
good, good," it seemed to say, ho talked
and gavo much good, good, good, good
advico whilo ho distributed it around.
Tho darkies had just wiped their mouths
on their coat sleeves preparatory to leav
ing, when a littlo negro boy camo up
with tho mail. Jlarse Bob glanced over
it hastily, and called out:
"Halloa, here, Poter a postal for you."
"Yas, sir," responded Uncle Peter,
stepping up with happy expectation in
his tones and movements.
"Shall I read it for you?" with a twin
kle in his eyes, for ho had read it while
speaking, and had heard something of
Peter's boasting lately.
"Yas, sir. s'pose you do," responded
Peter, who was feeling generous after
his smile. He didn't caro just then if
all tho darkies in Christendom know how
to get rich.
Marso Bob cleared his throat, while
all tho hands turned around to hear
what Undo Peter's correspondent had
"How to got rich. Eat nothing, wear
uothing, and work liko old Nick."
There was a shout of laughter from j
every pair of lips savo Undo Peter's. I
IIo was dumb with disappointment and !
rage. IIo said not a word, but turned j
away and walked off "a sadder and a ,
It is a month later. Riches aro never
mentioned by Poter now. IIo is cured.
His fellow workmen plagued Ids poor
old lifo almost out of him, until one
morning ho turned liko a wounded lion
at bay and made them all fly. Sinco
that timo ho has lived in peace A curi

tho preacher at ono timo, but tho genial
nature of both old darkies has thawed
that out, and thoy aro tho sanio old
