Brown," said I, as I turned down the bedquilL preparatoiy to getting into bed, -you've been at it again!" “At what?” quoth Brown. - “■Why shaking the leathers all over to vour side’ of the bed. I won't stand it. now. that's all." And I gave the bed another in dignant dig with my fiats. lirown lull back on his chair and langhed mmoderately. ,4 0b, you may laugh,” I growled, ‘but, bv George, its no fun. You “re always up to some hoggish Tiick, and I say it’s no fun. I’ll give Mrs. Scoavie notice to-morrow —see if I don’t. I pay as much hoard as you do, and I won’t be come it over this way any more." “Oh, now, what’s the use of getting grouty. Pomeroy? said Brown, as.He kicked his boots across the room. “Grouty! Wbowouldnt get grouty? I don't come games*on you. A fellows enough to bear about this miserable boarding ■house, without you to make it worse." “ Now, Pom, let the boardinghouse alone. Boarding houses are all alike. Sirs. Scoavle gives as good as any one else for the money." “ Oh, you can stand anything. I never see such’a fellow as you are. You'd get along in a coal-bin.” “ You don’t mean-it, Pomeroy! What a beast you are getting to be! ’’ “ Don’t like the place you fixed for, me, do you ? Y ou'll sleep there though, or you'll haul me out of bed." With that I smuggled myself under the quilts, as if determined to die there in de fense of my rights. Brown laughed a good natured laugh as he buttoned his night shirt. “ 1 guess we won't fight to-night,” said he, “ its too late." ' ’Then he turned off the gas and got into bed. Brown and I boarded at a cheap boarding house, where theaccommodations were graua • ated very closely down to the price—which I don't mind telling vpu was four dollars a week. The same style of board costs about . twice as much now, you know. We w ere leliow-clerks in a railroad office, and our salaries were precious small. I was a regular growler. Everything went wrong with me. Did you over notice that people who are the hardest to please —people who find fault with everything—generally get the worst of every thing ? That smy ex perience in hoarding houses sud out of them. 1 used to think Mrs. tscoavlc was a regular skiufiintess, and everything in and about her house at wrong ends. I should have left her a dozen times but lor that selfish Blown —as 1 dublied him. aud as I believed him. I was five years older than Brown, but, somehow or other, he used to do pretty much as he pleased with me. There was'something cu riously fascinating about the fallow, notwith standing he was such a hog—always looking cut tor Number One—a \ ery prihee of .selfish ue„s —must be, or how could he get bloug so uicely? He was high in favor with .fin. Scoavle and the servant gills, while I was quite the reverse. If you ever boarded out you know wbat that amounts to. The chamber maid used to do eveiythiug she could to please Brown and vex me; that map ter of the feathers was her work, ot course, but how could I know it ? Brown never en lightened me. That was the worst of it. f \ hen 1 called him a hog he would laugh in my face as though he enjoyed it. The table girls used to look out lor nun in just the same way. If there was a knife with the handle that wobbled, you may be sure he never got it. I generally did. 1 The next morning Brown was out ot bed bright and early, lor it was a holiday with us, and that was a rare thing. He made his toilet cheerily, humming a little song, aud. pulling on his best boots, w hen 1 got up aud proceeded to make my abulations. "Now, then, Brown, where’s the soap ?” said I, in much vexation. “1 dpn t know,” he replied. “I haven’t seen any soap. 1 got along without." I looked at him incredulously. “Ob, don't stand there staring at me as if ml was a funeral, 1 haven t swallowed the soap. . . “Then where is it ?” “I say I don t know. It may be in- your boots lor all I can teli.” I looked iu my boots, half suspecting to find it there, and then washed myself rebel liously. “Hang meif I don’t give Airs, bcovale a going over tor this,” said 1, as 1 took up my patent leather gaiters to rub them otf. i found the soap iu one of them. ‘Now, then.” 1 cried triumphantly, “here it is! I'd like to know-how-tile soap got into my Sunday gait ers. ’ 1 presume you It say you didn’t put it there.” ••I suppose oue of us must have dropped it there; said he. “Yes, I dare say one of us did," was my angry response, At dinner that day we had green peas— the first of the season. I was very loud of green peas. So is Brown. We ate them with a relish, and the dish was all too small; but there was no second disheif ot such things at Mrs. Scovale's, and that I knew very well; so I pushed the empty saucer away with a sigh. Brown pushed his away with a wink, directed at me. A minute later I noticed Brown’s dish had been replenished. New regulations, thought J, and beckoned one of the servant girls. “Any more peas ?" said 1. “Peas are ail gone, Mr. Pom'roy,” said Maggie. Ot course! And there sat that hoggish Brown eating his second dish. “Brown,’ said 1, as we strolled out after dinner, “I've eaten iny last meal in that house/’ “Have you ?” said Blown, quietly. “Yes —1 have. You needn't think I shall hack down thi6 titne. I'm decided, and there's an end to it.” “Now, Pom—” “You needn't commence it,” I interrupt ed. “I won’t hear a word.” “You won’t leave a teftow all alone there, wilt you Po:oV said Brown, in mock grid. “I guess you’ll survive,” said 1. ‘Tin going to enlist this very day.” Brown and 1 had been talking about it for some weeks, but I hadn’t much thought of really doing it. “Pom, old boy, if yon go 1 shall that's flat.” “You don’t mean you'll enlist with me. do you, Brown ?” “Just so.” “You’re joking.” “Not unless you are, Pom.” “Why Brown, you’ll be killed ! You like your ease too well. What’ll Mrs. Scoavle do ?• ,' “W ell, it is rather hard on a fellow,” said Brown. “I can give Mrs. Scoavle a lock ot my pair, you know. I shall stick to you, old man.” We did it. There was anew call for 300,- 000 men, and a regiment was rapidly tilling up. I put my name down among‘the pri vates, and right, alter came the name in a bold round hand, “David Brown”—that sel fish Brown. I went to bed in an unwonted good humor that night; and Brown said, as he flung ids pants over the mirror and hss ueck-Xie under the table. “Where do you suppose we ll be a year from this, Pom “Away from Mrs. Scoavle’s boarding house,' odd i. 11.—1803. “Brown, you're at your old tricks.” “What’s the matter now ?” “Why, look at my blanket! It’s wet. — How’s a fellow to sleep on such a blanket as that ?” “Why didn’t you dry it ?” says Brown.— “Mine's a& dry as a squirrel's nest.” “Oh, oi course it is'. How conld I dry it when I had to stand guard all the evening ? You might have looked for It. Tom wonld if you weren’t so selfish. That’s your style." “Ob, what's the use of growling over a wet blanket ? I’ve slept on one often, ahd s. vc you. Take it easy, Pom, and go to sleep.” ••l'ou might give me your s alter I've been out in the cold the past two hours, and you setting here bv the fire. I believe the blank et would have dried itself if you hadn't shoved it into the furthest corner of the house. It’s just like you ” All the answer I pot was a snore. Was there ever such a big hog ? We were at Chattanooga now. Our quar lets were comfortable, for the cold fall rains were kept off nicely by our little red-cedar shanty—built the day after we camped. 1 might say that Brown built it himself, for he certainly did more work than any four men in camp—no matter in whatVay. He never shirked. But when he got his nest made, be sure he was just as ready to enjoy it as he-had been to build it. His health was splendid. He could sleep all night in a pud dle of water and come out of it the next morning as hearty and good natured as if he had slept in a bed of down. At breakfast, the morning after the blan ket episode, Brown had milk for his coffee. “Where and you get that ?” I Asked. “Tom Bates caught a cow last night,” said Brown: “I thought you had some.” “Well, “I did’nt. Give me a little of yours, can’t you ?” As 1 spoke the fellow was in the act of swallowing it. “Spoke too late, Pom,” said he, with a broad grin. •Oh, of course ! Y’our’e as big a hog as eyer. I believe you’d see a fellow starve be fore you’d give him anything you wanted for your" own precious stomach." “You wont’s starve for want of milk in your coffee, Pom. I like it first-rate with out milk." “Well, I don't. I never can get used to it. It goes.against my stomach " “I’ll drink it for you, Pom, if you’re afraid it'll make you sick.” “Oh, thftnk you.” 1 was disgusted with him. You know how we fought at Chattanooga. That day we went through fire. I can't des cribe it, of course. We soldiers don’t know much bow a battle looks ; its a busy time with us. Night came down on a bloody field, where 1 lay with my right leg sliattered all to pieces bv shell Irorn Lookout. Wounded and dead aud dying lay strewn about me. The darkness settled thicker and thicker. The stars looked down coldly on us. All, how I thought about old times ! How I used to despise Mrs. Bcoavle’s bed and board ! If I were only there now ! I've seen the last of that, thought I. I wondered where Brown was. Y’ou loose sight ol your friends wonderfully in the smoke and din of battles. No doubt be got off sate, and was silting by the camp-fire now. He always looked out for Number One. A hand touched mine in the darkness. It was wet with blood. “Who's this ?" uttered a husky, feeble voice. “Tom Pomeroy,” said I. Who are you?" “No, you dou’t say your’e here,” said the voice. “Are you hurl much ?” “My legjj split to flinders,"said I. “Is this Brown ?” "Ay—Brown,” said the feeble voice—fee ble and muffled—uttered through rebellious groans. “I’m done for, I think." “Where are you hurt, old man ?" “All over, Pom. There isn’t a whole limb on me. I think there’s a bullet through my left lung. I can hardly speak for the blood in my mouth.' We lay in the silence of exhaustion for some minutes, but I knew by the way the poor fellow pressed my hand that he was busy with thought, perhaps with memory. "Brown," said L, “it's fourteen months Vo- May since we enlisted. Do you remember? ’ “At#” be murmured. "1 brought you here, old friend,” said I. “Pom, tiout Bay that!” It Seemed terburt him. Another long silence followed. We both spoke only w ith great effort. “Oh, for a drink of water!” I cried. I was perishing with thirst. “Can you get at my canteen ?” said Biown. “There’s some milk iu it. Drink it.” * I got the canteen, and held it to him. “Drink you,” said I. “It will revive you.” “Dou't waste it, Pom. Drink it up. It may keep yon alive till they came for you. It wouldn’t help me now.” I could not coax him to drink a drop. With eager, trembling lips I touched the mouth ot the canteen- Ah, how refreshing it-was! “They're coming,” said 1, as 1 spid a lau t urn drawing near. The owner of the lanturn drew near.— There was another with him. They stopped near by, and leaned over a rebel soldier who lay there, badly wounded, hut, as it appear ed conscious. The one with the lantern thrust his hands into the rebel’s pockets, and drew forth the contents. The poor fel low remonstrated. The other summarily dropped a bayonet through his heart. “That’s the’ way to tlx ’em, Jim,” said the one with the lantern? “when they don’t like it. “It’s humane to put ’em out 'o thar paiu, ain't it?—ha, ha!” They came on to us, and threw the light of their lantern ou our faces. We kuew our safety lay in perfect submission only.— They robbed Brown, and lie never stirred or 'showed signs of consciousness. I thought myself that all was over with him. Then theytame to me. “This fellow's shamming possum,” said one ot them, and he spurned my bead with his foot. ’ “Leave him be!” fiercely uttered Brown, in a voice that would have been a shout but for tlio death current through which it struggled. “Fix that feller, Jim !” said the one with the lantern, looking around. A pistol cracked, and' “Jim” leaped up, ut tered—“ God !” and fell dead. “D»niu you!” said the other, tumiug upon Brown, “you've done it now !” and ho Has fe ed a ktliie over my old friend's head. Brown struck up with his pistol, ami the knife flew from the man's hand. At the same instant 1 caught his foot aqd tripped him. lie fell headlong upon Brown, and was received in the embrace of my dying comrade, who iu liis death-agony struggled with the cursing brute- To my last hour 1 shall remember that fearful scene—the thief and the blood covered soldier rolling over and over, in the straggle of death, in the dim starlight of that ghastly field ; the one cursing furiously, the other silent, with all his energies centred in the grip with which his teeth were fastened upon the throat of the robber. The laughing, light-hearted fellow, who loved his case so woll, and made sport of my petty vexations, when a great hour of horror came changed to a. ban-dog in the service of his friend! Whether lie could have lived had he kepi silence at Uni moment when he saw my file endangered I know hot, and it does not matter. He gave his life to save me, that 1 know..
