The picnic off on Saturday af

Ilea of such occasion. v highly pio
pltlous, nint several liunilrvl persons,

Hrsldc these arrangement for enjoy

Iron chain, which wen thrown around
trve near the brink of the water. After
enjoying the swing for time, there wa
a proposition to so out in the lioal. The
boat couhl romfortnbly accommodate

The other boat bad already set eff,

of Walter (.'annul, who had long Ix-en no

one of hi own at home.
"They've lot a great teerer on the

"Where are you Fleering, Joshua?"
nArd Italph. uddenly, for the boat n ar
il half turned round. The fact wa that
Jhua himself knew very little about
steering. In speaking of Walter' want
of skill, he had preciely described hlin
.elf. "I understand what I'm about." an
swered Joshua, suddenly recrlng the
direction, and overdoing the matter, so
n to turn the boat halfway round the
other way.
"I hope you do." aaM Italph, "but It
don't look much like It."
"I was looking at the other bo.t,"
Jofhun condescended to explain, "and the
redder slipped.
Walter'a boat kept the lead. Ill per
feet steering made the ak eaiier for
the rowers, who got the full advantage
of their efforts. Joshua, however, by
Id uncertain steering, hindered the pro
gress of his boat.
"Can't we beat the other boat?" inde
ed Joseph Wheeler, who was rowing. "I
can row as well as either of those fel
lows." "So can I," said Tom Harry: "I'fs
The boats were about five length
apart, the rowers in the foremost boat
not having worked very hard, when Tom
and Joe began to exert themselves. The
Intention was soon manifest, and the
spirit of rivalry was excited.
"Do your best, boy!" said Walter.
'They're trying to catch us. Don't let
them do It." ,
The rower of the two boats were nlut
evenly matched. If anything,. however,
Tom and Joe were stiiwrior, and, other
things being equal, would sooner or later
hare won the race. Hut Joshua, by Ins
original style of steering, which became
under the Influence of excitement even
more unreliable, caused them to lose r
tcptlhly. "Can't you steer straight by aeeldnnt,
Joshua)" asked Tom, in a tone of vexa
tion. ,
"I know more alout steering than jou
do, Tom Harry," growled Joshua, (.et

This was very mortifying to Joflnm. He

be said. "Vou don't row even."
"Won't jou try It, then," said Joe,
"and show us what you can do?"
"No; I'd rather steer."
Joshua considered that the steersman's
place was the place of honor, and he was
not dlswed to yield it. Meanwhile Wal
ter, trth his place In the first boat,
Hatched tho efforts of his rivals. He was
determined to keep the lead which he
bad secured, and had little fear of los
ing It.
"Give way, boyi!" he cried; "we'll dis
tance them, never fearl"
After making the turn, the Arrow met
the I'loneer after a littlo distance. Theie
was abundant room for the boats to pass
roch other, If they bad been properly
managed. There was no fault in Wal
ler's steerlug, but, by an awkward blun
der of Joshua'ii, the I'loneer veered In
her course so that the Arrow struck her,
to use a nautical term, amidships. An
Hie was being Impelled rapidly at tho
time, the shock was considerable, and the
fright still greater. The girls Jumped to
Ihilr feet screaming, and Joshua himself
turned pale with fright, but rc-coveid
himself sulh'ciently to call out angrily,
"What made you run Into us?"
"It's your own fault, Joshua," sild
Tom Harry, angrily, "You're the most
itupld stcerer 1 ever saw. What made

"It's his fault," aald Joshua.

place, much to his mortification, and he
was degraded, a he considered. It, to the
Mnk of a lutssengcr.
"I'm going ashore," he said, sourly.
"Let me out here."
"All right." said Tom Harry. "I gucs
we can get nlotig without jou. Here, ton
fellows on the Arrow, Just wait a min
ute, till we've lauded Joshua, and we'll

True to hi determination, Joshua
Jumped off at the head of the Inlet, and
the I'loneer wa turned by her new pilot.
The Arrow and the I'loneer took tlolr
places side by side, and the raw com

nrlthrr had the ndtautnge on this score.
Hut the rower on the I'loneer were, on
the whole, stronger, and more skillful
than those on the Arrow. On the other
hand, Walter ateered crfectly, while
Joshua's successor, though he made no
bad blunder, wn a notice.

clear one. I'lnally the Arrow came In a

lie howd that he would lie a siicecM
fill through life In paddling hi own canoe.
Joohiia went home sulkily, and was not
wen again on the picnic ground.
One ntorntng, a few da later, Johua
wa walking iikhmIII)- up the village road
with hi hands In hi pocket. He was
reflecting, In a spirit of great discontent,
on the hardship of hi situation.
"Here am I." he M to himself. 'Vlh
leen year old, and father treat mo like
a boy of ten. I'm mot a man, and rll
be give me for jcket money I twenty
fivi i-ent a week. There's Dick Storr.
whose father isn't a quarter a rich r
mine, gets n dollar a week, llt'a only
sixteen, too."
One Important difference between him
self and Dick Storr did not occur to
Joidiiia. Dick worked In a shoehop, nnd
It was out of his own wages that his fath
er nlloweil lilm a dollar a week. jonua
earned nothing at all.
"It's mean!" reflected Joshua. 'There
ain't a boy of my age In Stapleton that's
so meanly treated, and yet my father's
the richest man In town. I wish I knew
what to do to get a little money."
At till moment he saw Sara Crawford
approaching him. Sam was perhaps a
)enr younger than Joshua, lie had for
merly lived in the village, but was now
In a situation In New York, and was
only In Stapleton for a few days.
"How are you. Joshua?" said Sam.
"I'm going round to the Ice cream saloon.
Won't you come with me?"
"Yes, If jou'll treat. I haven't got any
"You ought to hare. The old man's
got plenty."
'That's so. Hut he's getting meaner
evry day."
"Iook here!" said Sam. suddenly: "I
have an Idea. Did you ever buy a lottery
"No," answered Joshua.
"There's a fellow I know In New York
that drew a prize of a thousand dollar,
and how much do you think he paid for
a ticket?"
"I don't know."
"I'lve dollar. How's that for high?"
"How long ago Is that?" asked Joshua,
becoming lntreted.
"Only two months ago."
"Do you know him?"
"Yes, I know him n well as 1 know
you. He Is clerk In a store just opposite
our. When he gut the money he gave
half a dozen of us a big dinner. We had
u Jolly time."
"A thousand dollars for five I" repeat
eJ Joshua. "He wa awfully lucky."
'The fellow I was speaking of gets
lottery paers regularly. I'll ask him
foi one, and send It to jou as soon a I
get back to the city."
"I wish you would," said Joshua.
"Wouldn't It be something great If I
could draw a prize of a thousand dol
lars?" "I'll bet It would. It would make you
Independent of the old man. You wouldn't
care much for bis twenty-five cents a
week then."
Joshua and Ham went Into the ce
cream saloon, which was kept open dur
ing the summer only, In a small candy
store, by a maiden lady who made a
scanty Income from such limited atron
age as the tillage could afford. Joshua
plied hi companion with further ques
tions, to all of which he readily repllil,
though It Is doubtful If all the answers
were quite correct. Hut Sain, having
been In the city a few mouths, wished
to be thought to have a very extensive
acquaintance with It, nnd was unwilling
to admit Ignorance on any point.
Kurly the next week Sam returned to
his duties In the city, and Joshua await
ed Impatiently the promised lottery pa-
Mrs. Ham did not forget his promise.
On the third day after his departure n
paper came to the village postofllce, di
rected :
"Joshua Drurnmond, I.,
This was promptly taken from the of
tict by Joshua, who had called on an av
erage twice a day for this very paper. It
moved to bo printed on yellow
and fairly bristled with figures, Indicat
ing the largo sums which were weekly
distributed all over the country by the
benevolent managers of the lottery. litre

was but n iIioikiiiiiI dollar. However,
the tickets were but n dollar each, nnd
ft thousand dollar for one wa certainly
a handsome return for a small outlay.
Tliero wero other, however, In which the
principal prim wa tho thouatid dollar,
and the, ticket were. In duo proportion,

Thn more Joshua thought It over, the
nioro convinced he wa that n large sum
of money via likely to come to him
through the lottery It ho could only mint

a ever from solving.

step and opened the money drawer.
There wns a small pile of bill in one
compartment, and In the other a collection
of currency. Ho took the hill into 111

trembled a little, for he contemplated a
dishonest net. Citable to obtain the
money In any other way, he meant to bcr

pend It In a lottery ticket.
Singling out n llie-dollar bill from the
pile, he thrust It Info his vest iwkct.

startled by hearing the door open. He
uisde n guilt) Jump, but iwrivhed, tit hi
It lief, that It wn a noiuan not living III
the tillage, but probably hi some adjoin
ing town,
"What can I show you, ma'am?' he
asked, in a flurried manner, for he could
uol help thinking of what he had In hit
test pocket.
"I should like to look at some of your
shawls," raid the woman
Joshua knew very Utile aNiiit his fnlh
e's stock. He did know, however, where
the shawl were kept, and going to that
portion of the shelves, pulled down hilt
a doteu and showed them to III cm
"Are they all wool?" she asked, cttt-
Ically, examining one of litem.
"Yes," answered Joshua, confidently,
though he had not the slightest knowl
edge on the subject.
"What is the price of Ibis one?" asked
the customer, Indicating the one sh lud
In her hand.
"Klve dollars," answered Joahuo, with
some hesitation. He knew nothing of
lh( price, but guessed that this would b
about right.
"And you say It Is all wool?"
"Certainly, ma'am."
"I guewi I'll take It. Will you wrap
It up for me?"
This Joshua did awkwardly enough,
and the customer departed, much pleased
with her bargain, a she had a right lo
l, for the real price of the shawl was
nine dollars, but, thanks to Joshua's Ig
norance, she had bt-en able to save four.
Joshua looked at the five-dollar lull
he had Just received, and a new Idea oc
curred to him. He replaced In the draw
er the bill he had originally taken from
It and substituted that just received.
"I won't say anything alxiut having
sold a shawl," he said, "nnd father's
niter know that one has been sold. t
any rate, till I get money enough to re
place the bill I hare taken."
Just then a little girl came In and in
quired for a smoI of cotton. Joslua
found the swols, and let her select one.
Then he hurriedly folded up the shawls
and replaced them on the shelve. He
had just finished the task when Walter
"Are you tending store?" he snld. In
"Yes," wild Joshua. "Nichols got tired
waiting for you, so I told him I'd stay
tlU you got hack."
"I had some distance In go ami that
detained me. Did jou hate any custom
era?" "Yes, I just sold a spool of cotton to a
little girl."
"I met her a little way up tho road,
holding the spool In her hand."
"Well," said Joshua, "I guess I'll go
now you've got back."
He went across thn street to his fath
er's bouse, and, going np Into his room,
locked the door, not wishing to bo Inter
rupted. Then, opening his desk, he took
out a sheet of pa(Mr, and wrote a note
to the addrss given In his lottery cir
cular, requesting the parties to send him
by return of mall a lottery ticket. He
added, shrewdly, as he thought, "If this
ticket draws a prize, I will keep on buy
ing; but If It don't I shall get dlscour
ngtd and atop."
"I guess that'll fetch 'fin," thought
He folded up II" P"l"r, nnd, Inclosing
the bill, dlrcded It. The next thing to
do was to mall It. He decided, thotuh
unwillingly, on account of the trouble,
to walk to the next iioitotllce, n distance
of three miles, to ost his letter there,
Joshua returned home, feeling Hred
nnd provoked, hut congratulating himself
that be had taken the first step toward
the grand prize which loomed In dazzling
prosiect before his eyes.
