"Yes," anil "No," by turns for five

".Siieukinf? of pluck, as you were do
Inff just now, reminds me of a story,
the beginriinif audi end of which is
that one Kurd."
We settled ourselves In our chaira.
We were sittinff in the office of the
Iron works, and the air was full of
the sound of jrreat hammers, crashing
and pounding; of the sharp hiss of
molten metal, and the clear ring of
"I was sitting here In this very
chair," the ironmaster be.-ran, "one
day about seven years ago, or maybe
eight. Time goes so fust I hardly try
to keep count of it In these days. At
any rate, here 1 was sitting) reading
the newspaper, when there came a
knock at the door.
"Tome In!' I said; and in walked a
atranger. lie was a young man, about
25 years old, dreshed like a gentleman,
though his clothes had seen a good
deal of service. Tall, with his head
held up, and gray eyes that met mine
fulr and Wiiure.
"Awavs look first at a man's eyes,
my boy! If lie looks you in the eye,
he is worth trying. If his eyes shift
about here and there, as if they didn't
know where to look, or were afraid of
seeing something they didn't like
have nothing to do with him! That's
"Well, this young man came up to
my desk, and spoke without waiting
for me; yet It wns no wnnt of man
ners, for his manners were good.
"'(lood. morning, sir!' lie sai!; and
Ms voice had n clear ring to it that I
liked. 'I want work. Can you give

strangers in that way, and I don't
recoin incnil the practice nt any time.
"'.No, sir!' I said. 'We have no work
here. Sorry I can't nccoiuinodute
you.' I took up my paper again, and
looked to see him go out wilhout more
words, but he stood still, i must have
work!' he said. 'I would try to give
you satisfaction, sir, and 1 tell you I
must have it!'
"'My good sir,' I mid, putting the
paier down, 'there Is no vacancy In
the place. If you will give me your
name and references, I will make a
note of them, and some day when we
do have a Job to dispone of I will re
member you. That is tin best 1 can
ilo for you to-dny,'
"The young mini shook Ilia head.
'That won't do!' he said. Think
again, sir. Surely In this great place
there must be something n strong,
willing ninn can ihi. It is useless to
talk of waiting till a vacancy occurs.
1 must have work now, to-iuy! It is
"It wns on the tip of my tongue to
tell him that it was absolutely neces
sary for him to leave that olllce and
shut the ikior after him; but I looked
at him again, and didn't say it.
"I suw that he was telling the
truth, and that he must have work.
It wnsu't that he looked shabby, or
that there was any suspicion of whin
ing or snivelling nlsuit him. If there
had been, out he would have gone in
pretty quick time. Hut there was a
look In Ills eves-well, 1 hardly know
how to describe it, but the man wns

"'Collie with me!' I said. And he
followed me out of the works. Ills
story might be true, or It might not.
but I liml thought of a viiiy to test
the mutal of which he was made.
"The Stark mill. In which I had
some Interest, had been partly
burned a few days before, und I had
II gang at work, clearing nway the
rubbish. A dirty job it was; the men
were up to their waists half the time

Yankee to touch, and even the Irish
were shy of it. They were little,

them to my gentleman, with his clear

that, whatever trnda he had worked

"Well, I wint hack to the office. I
couldn't be hangiiifr round watching1
the men. or the bo km would have
been making trouble; but my new
hand atayed on my mind, omeliow,
and I strolled round by the wn-ek
two or three times in the afternoon,
making aome errand, you under

"That man wax working, sir, like &
like a hointe afire. The Italian are
good workers, none better, as a rule
but hiM pick went In and out thne
times for their twice, and there was
no chattering In his corner of the
hole. He had little breath to talk,
if he had wanted to, for though he
was a muftcmlar fellow, you could wo
with half an eye that he had never
done such work in Mm life before.
"The sweat poured down hit, face
like rain, but he never Htoited, nevtr
looked up. or knew that 1 or anyone
elne was near Just plodded uwny,
awinging that pick as if there were

think his atrungth would Inm. When
he crania in for his pay at night, he
was shaky and pretty t irrddoofcing;
but he said never a word; just took
his pay with the rest, and thanked
me, and went off.
"The next morning I wan very
busy, and although I thought of my
gentleman once or twice, I didn't
manage to get down to the wreck
till noon, soon after the whistle had
blown for knocking off work.
"When I got there 1 saw the Itnllnus
lying round on the ground or Kuatting
on the fences, eating their black bread
and RHtiHugic, and chattering awa.v us
usual; but no sight of my gentleman

"'Oho! mi id I to myself. 'One day
was eiiuugh for him, was it?' And I
thought it would haw heeii enough for
me, too. When you are not used to
the swing of a pick, the way il takes
you in the back is soon thing beyond
belief. I turned to come away, and
lot there he was, sitting otT in a cor

a great hunch of bread in one hand and
a book in the other.
