Beniiie Waters got up ut dayltKht that
morning to build the lira and warm the
room fur his mother, who was tint strong,
and found the keen air of the eiirjty Mprliig
very trying in their rudely built cabin a
few nilles out on the plains from the vil
lage. All the time be was about thin labor
of love be was Uilnking of the fortuuute
opening likely to be bin that day.
He bad been nearehiitK for something to
do lit the vtllitgo, for m attorn were getting
eriousiu their little home. The mother
bad been wick ho low, and their ex pen Hen
bod been so heavy, Unit the little they bad
saved against a time of need wiih now com
pletely gouo. Next to nothing remained
for tli ii u to live upon; und, if possible, he
must lind work of Nome kind to keep actual
want from the door.
So for two or three days previous to tide
morning he hml been looking for work, but
without success. He wan either too young
or not strong enough, or they had no work !
lor a boy, and he bad liecome well nigh
discouraged. The evening before, how
ever, just hm he waa about to give np
trying further lor that day, be had stepped
into the store of field & Swinburne, hard
ware dealers, and asked if they reeded a
boy. He was shown Into the oftice, where
lie found Mr. Swinburne alone,
That gentleman, ufter making some In
quiries as to Heuule's age and where be
"Yea, we do need a boy; but Mr, Field is
now out of town. You may come tomor
row morning at 9 o'clock, and we will see
what can he dune for vou. Mind, now, and
be on time, as we Khali hire the first boy
that comes along." '
"What wages would you be apt to pay V
fiennie ventured to ask.
"Oh I two or three dollars a week," an
swered Mr. Swinburne cureleasly. "It de
pends altogether on how well you work."
So Beanie built the fire, und busied him
elf in cooking the putiitne all that they
hod for breakfast happy at the prospect
before bim, and sure tbat he would do bin
best to earn the highest wages suggested.
On that amount he felt confident his moth
er and himself could, with proper care,
live comfortably until she waa able to work
Tbe breakfaat If a diah of potatoes can
be called a breakfast onoe ready, he went
to the door otyiis mother's room and nailed
"Only think, mother," he exclaimed, as
they sat down at the table, "I'm to have
work today; and if I'm worth it I'm to
have three dollar n week, aud that'll be
nough for us to live on."
"Yes, indued!" responded bis mother.
But I fear you are loo young to under
take so much; above all, to take your long
walk after each day's work."
"Oh, I can stand it easily enough, mo
ther," he asserted confidently.
When the poor little meal waa finished
he brought in several huge arm fills of
wood, and arranged oh far as possible for
hie mother's comfort throughout thedHy.
and then put on his coat aud started.
"Here is your scurf, Huttuic," anld his
mother, calling him back, "it will be

Most of the large boats have the big
square pilot house on top of the "Texas,"
