JAMES D. ED88,
One bright morning in the month
of November, tome jenra ago, 1
wu preparing to go down town,
when the nervont informed mo
that a man waa waiting at the
front door to Me me.
‘Toll him I'll ho down in a min
ute,’ eaid I. ■
On going to the door a man of
tall atatnre and robu*t appearanoe
oalling me by name, requested as
sistance,saying that he had a large
family, a wife in delicate health,
and no menu to procure food for
‘You appear to bo atrong and
healthy; why don't you work ?’
'Simply, oir, for the reaaon that
I cannot procure work.’
Not having any work to give
him, I thought I would toot the
•incerity of hi* inteutiono.
'If I give you work, what pay
do you wont ?’
‘Anything sir, you chooae to
give me,' as long ns I can obtain
means for my sulfuring family,
•Very well/ .aid I. 'I will
give you 25 cents an hour if you
will carry a briek on your arm
around the block for dve Hours
‘Thank you, 3ir; I will do it.’
After hunting awhile I found a
briok, placed it on the mao’s arm
started him on hi* walk, and then
went down town to my business.
Not having the least faith in
the man's promise, I thought but
little more of it, yet, a* I knew I
should be back within five hours,
I determined to see if he perform
ed hi. work. My busineas kept
me away rather later than I ex
pected, ao I had to forego my nsu-
al walk home, aad took a fourth
avenue car to b« back within the
As I approached the corner of
the street where I reside, I found
a great crowd of persons gathered
twa fire-engines, a horse-cart and
a hotk-and-ladder truck. Upou
inquiring where the fire waa, I
wa» informed that it was a false
alarm, and that what brought the
people together and occasioned the
agitation war the spectaole of a
tall mao oarryiag a briok on hio
arm around the block for nearly
five kouti. The neighbor, were
looking at him from toe windows
and door. a.he passed along;some
thought bo wa. crazy, hut when
spoken to hi. answer Was :
‘Don't .top me; it's all right.’
Aa he interfered with no one,he
wa* allowed to walk on undi.turb
Whore is the man now?' I asked.
‘There, you can see him at the
other end of the block, walkiug
with his hood down,' was the an
He was jnst about turning the
corn.r, and I waited till h« had
performed the circuit; then,taking
nimby the arm.l marched him to
my house, followed by a lot of
boys. Iu the meantime the fire
men, engine* and horse-carts rat
tled off. Tho man wa. thoroughly
tired out when I took him into
my hall and seated him on the
ohair, and my servant, went tor a
little wine and something to eat.
I paid him a dollar and a halt.
He informed me that, while mak
ing one of hia turns, a lady came
out of a hones and in quired why
ha wasoarryiog tbai h. i.ik.antl «u
giving her the reason* ho received
dollar. Tho object soon became
known, for aa ha passed the hous
es small aumi ware given to him
by different perMns, and he was
wall satisfied with hie day's work.
But/ said ha, ‘what shall I do
Why/ I replied, ‘go early in
tha morning to the houses from
whiob you reooived the money and
ask for work, and, no doubt, you
ill find Mme one who -^11 put
you iu tho way af getting' it; and
then report to me.’
Tho following afternoon he in
formed me that he hod been eont
to a German, who kept a pork es
lablishment in Third avenue, and
who wanted a cletk to keep his
books. He was to get |5 a week
if his work proved satisfactory ,aud
his duties began on the following
day. Befors Waving me he asked
for the brick that brought him
euoh good luok, and I gave it to
him. Within the year I ascer
tained that the man had been
transferred to a larga establish
ment of the same kind, with a sal
ary of 91,000,
Throe or four years after this
was' riding in a street-car, when a
well dressed man accosted me with
a smile, and asked me if I knew
him. Being me hesitate, he said;
‘Do you recollect the man who
once carried the brick ?'
He then informed me that he
was doing a prosperous business
ou his own acoount, had laid up
money, and expected soon to build
himaelf a house up-town.
‘What became of the briok ?
That briok, sir, has always oc
cupied a place on our mautlepieoe,
and we value it aa the most prec
ious of our possessions. It has
made our fortune.’

round of inspection, when his at
tention waa called to a man crawl
ing out of an eighty-foot deep
winze, who fell faintiug as soon
as he reached the floor of the drift.
Jack rushed to the man, tonri-l
him ineeueible, and saw at once it
was a case of foul air,and it flash
ed across hie mind that there wei

An txchang* says; We sup
pose many people think that the
newspaper men arepersistentdnns,
let a former plaoe himself in a situ
ilar position and see if he would
not do the same. Suppose he rail
ed oue thousand bushels sf wheat,
and his neighbor should come and
buy a bushel, and the prioe waa a
small matter of only two dollars
or leas, and the neighbors tav, ‘1
will hand you tho ohaoge in a few
days.’ As the former did nst
want to be small abonl tha matter
he saye/ ‘AU right,’ and tha
man loaves with th* whsat. An
other comes in tha same way un
til the whole one thousand buib-
els ot wheat are trusted to one
thousaud different persons, and
not one of the purohasers concerns
himself about it, for it is a small
amount he owes tha former, aad
of course that would aot help him
any. He done not realize that the
farmer has fritted away all hia
large crop of wheal, and that its
value is due him in a thousaud
little driblets, and that he is es
peciully embarrassed because his
debtors treat it as a small matter.
But if all would pay him prompt
ly, which they conld do ae well
as uot, it would be a very larg.
ntuout to the farmer, enable him
to carry oa his business with oat
difficulty. Th* above comparison
is too true ot the difficulties that
the newspaper man has to coatend
drift. To rush to another portion
of the mine aad summon assis
tance, grab a rope, hurry back
and start down the wings ladder
was but ths work of a minute.
Reaching the bottom he tound
them lying in a stupor and insen
sible, He attached the rope to
the body of one of them, saug out
to the miners who had gathered
at the mouth of the wiugs to haul
away, which they did with a will,
and soon landed him ou tup. The
operation was repeated with tha
other two, and then Jack, diriy
and faint, climbed out,his temples
throbbiug with pain and very
nearly overcome himself.
Some time ag* Jack was working
in the Atlas mins, putting in a
blast at tho bottom of a ninety-
foot winzo, in company with a
brother miner. Everything being
ready to fire it, his companiou lit
the fire, and both started up the
ladder, Jack ahead. He had climb
ed about twenty feet when his
partner shouted that he was about
to faint, Without a moment's
hesitation Jack skipped bock, and
just as the uiau relaxed his hold
succeeded in grabbing a death grip
to hie shirt. It was a fearful heavy
burden, the man weighing 200
pounds, but putting fourth all his
muscular energies,he slowly climb-
•d the ladder round by round, the
iuoeusible miner embarrassing his
progress by bis contortions. It
was almost certain death unless he
succeeded in getting out of reach
of toe explosion, and his progress
seemed to be painfully slow; but
he huug on aad was within tea
feet of the top before the bloat
went off—a sufficient distance to

‘That was put up last year,’
