vrearo to make (lie tnumli to-night. The
volunteers begin to iltop in They aro niiy
at first rtt finding stiatigers present, but noon
begin to thaw out and deliver their vleivs
freely. There Is Dick Harrington, who
works nl Kill-making ; l'oter Hayes, n tink

niul .)o. Klndlay,wliose iiil'lness is to count
papers in a newspaper cilice.
Harrington Is not beyond a boylih blush
l'cler Hayes Is Inclined to bo a 1 i It Lc boat
ful ; "IJjny" Hays Is something of a phllo
soplier, and ctnlms to linvo seen a great
deal of Ufa while fishing lor eels ofT the
(locks ; Kindlay enj lys the distinction of
having made a specialty of frustrating sui
cides, add CoJy, from the line of business
ho Is in, is spoken of ns pretty "edlcated."
The apparatus takou along couilsts of
boat-hooks, life-lines, an Iron ladder, fold
ing up neatly like a camp-stool, and lan
terns. The life-line Is a common cord,about
twenty five, feet long, with a small billet of
wood attached to the end to be thrown to
the person in the water.
Wo do not hare the luck to havca genuine
caso to night. Up we go along the strange
river front to the. foot of Montgomery street,
then down to the liittcry, perhaps two mil
es in straight lino. How Imposingly tho
vast black hulls stand up ngalnsl tho sky I
Tho water clucks and chuckles to itself, as
if with a secret nud cruel humor, under the
planks on which we walk. Whoever is
drifted by tho tide in under there, where
the rays of the dark lantern will not pene
trate, is lost indeed.
Tns vicinity of the ferries is where there
aro the must bustling crowd", the water's
edge is the most easily reached, and the
principal liability to accidents exists. At
Tier Two, near the South Ferry, where the
station was then moored, Kelly and Long,
at half-past two of a winter's morning,heard
n cry. They ran out, explored, but could
see nothing. Coming back, two bauds were
discerned projecting despairingly out of the
ice-cakes. With a boat and the aid of their
Newfoundland dog, Rover, they drew the
roan out. They found him to be a 'long
shoreman, whe had walked over the edge
This is a very common story. The larger
part of the rescued, or those assisted before
they have a chance to come to harm, for
the boys make this a. praiseworthy part of
their occupation, too, are of a similar sort.
They are sailoresearching-in a dazed way
for their ships, persons of low condition at
tempting to walk straight across the o en
Canities Slip, or to tho lights of Brooklyn,
forgetful of the water, or others lain down to
sleep on the string-pieces of tho piers.
Tho suicides are generallyiDtoxicated.too.
Those who are not go out upon the ferry
boats, perhaps to make surer work of it. It
is a strange experience to hear one of these
boys tell how he found a middle-aged wo
man on tho edge of the pier, "prayin' and
lookin' up at the sky ;" how she "made a
bounce" and he "grabbed" her, aud how he
advised her, when she groaned she had been
robbed of her money and clothes and want
ed to die, to "just go right home and don't
bother no more about it."
These are lives so long steeped in the
v dregs ot wrctcneunecs as to be almost tire
y. some to the Ir owners, because they are so
Then there are the careless children, for
whom there are regular seasons. Many
such rescues happen in the spring when the
little folkffbegin to play on the loose logs
and rafts In the basins with the first fine
weathc-, but the majority occur in the sum
The grown people are shy or giving their
names, or making any stirabout their pre
servers, through shame at the condition
they wero in. The children often have a
wholesome fear of further punishment at
home, should they return drippingand their
whereabouts at the time be known.
Frequently some sad victim of a boy, as
he might be thought, just drawn from death's
door, may be seen playing gayly at tag,
waiting for his clothes which are spread out
to dry in the sun.
We stop to see the shelf, turned up against
the side of tho shed on the Harlem pier,
which was Nau's place of business in form
er times. Ho has transferred it to a cousin,
thus keeping it still in the family. We talk
with the watchmau on a tall Iiritish Balk in
the India trade. Then wo pick up a tramp
utowtd away in a dangerous place by the
Bridge Street ferry, and hand him over to
the police who receive him grumbling.
The boys are sorry that we do not have a
chance to see them in the actual heat of
their occupation, They offer, if wo wish
to go through the form of a rescue, by hav
ing one of their number fall in and two oth
ers get him out. We do not, of course, ac
cept so barbarous a test of hardihood, for it
was early spring and the water icy cold.
We are satisfied to hear from them their
manner of doing it.
The life-line is thrown as near the sink
ing person as possible. Two of the patrol
go into tho water. One puts the line about
the subject with a "half-hitch," the other
helps support him to land. If he struggle
and selzs tho rescuer so as to endanger both,
tho latter sinks a little, when the drowning
man lets go hn bold In alarm. In some
cases it has been necessary to strike him, so
as to sender him partly insensible.
The drowning person is always to be ai
proacbed from behiutl, turned upon his
back, and drawn in by the hair, the rescuer
swimming on his back also. This plan is
recommended by the best authorities, and it
may bo well for some of our young readers
to bear it In mind.
These young fellows have had the odilex
perlence of seeing themselves and their work
represented on the stage. They went to see,
at one of the cheap down-town theatres a
Bensational pleco entitled "Nan, tho News.
boy," which was acted to the satisfaction of
quite a large audience.
The boys speak of this play with great dis
gust "It was tho richest life-savin' I ever
see," says Nan, '-They had me In it, and
me mother in It. and all ofuz. There was
a woman, and the hadn't no more than
lost her baby when I steps up and says,
Jlere a yer baby, inisslsv "
"Then there was river pirates and n mill
iner. A girl Bhecomeslngln' down the docks
about twelve o'clock at night. There aint
no girls coinos tlnglu' around us, The riv
er pirate they stabbed the girl aud throwed
her in, Then there was another one thrown

five minutes. The feller that wai supposed

A glance at the smooth countenance of
Kelley, ho innocent of any such decoration,
showed this to be an error quite worthy of
the vigorous way in width it was found fault
The account (then of how tho roscued per
sons behave after their rescue Is not at
nil fovorable. Gratitude. l said to be the
last thing they think of. Often there Is
positive nbue. If a hat bo lost during the
confusion, as is of course not uncommon,
this trilling mtshap drives everything else
from their minds.
It Is clear that It Is not tho interesting
characters of the persons saved by which
Nan aud his mates aro inspired. Nor does
it seem an unusual benevolence uf disposi
tion on their part. It Is a bold delight in
the danger, tho hardship, tho skill of tho
thing for Itself. Plenty of the simo sort ol
ambition Is preserved tn the worst uses, and
this makes It especially gratifying to find it
so worthily employed,
Whatever may become of hU experiment
In the end, Nan, the Newsboy, In chosing so
high and humane an aim lu life, instead of
drifting, ns he si easily might, Into the us
ual courses of the loafers on corners, has
set a useful and noble example. 11', If.

A SIIAKKIl VIMiAOK.
(Charles Dildlpy Warner In Midsummer
The grassy street wo entered was silent.
No person was vlslblo ', there was no sign of
life In the plain gaunt buildings on either
side. Theso buildings, of the architecture
of New England barns, but painted white
aud pierced with windows, made no
offer of hospitality. One on tho right ap
peared to be a salesroom aud store-home.
Next was the great Meeting-house, a tab
ernaele of simplicity, with a hooded door
way. Opposite wero workshops, and there
were other buildings of which we could not
divine the use ; but at the end of tho cam
pus rose the high-roofed dwelling-house,
called 'The Home.'ornamented with tho only
vanity of the premises a low steeple con
taining a bell. Why was the bell on the
dwelling-bouse instead of on tho meeting
house? If wsj could ring it, would any life
be evoked ?
The great buildings stared at us with clos
ed doors and windows. For any evidence
of humanity, we might as well have been
In l'ompell. Had sonio Budden calamity
swept nwny the community, or was it per
haps the hour of meditation ? We waited,
ive watched, we listened. The silence was
profound. It was afternoon, aud all the
place was flooded with sunlight. Summer
had not come, but there was premonition of
it iu the soft gray sky flecked with blue
the veritable color of Cesar's eyes and in
the wandering wind that moved the low
grass gently and bad in it yet a little shiver
of spring It was a day when the south
side of a friendly barn, where the hens are
burrowing in the warm soil, is the most
comfxtabJfi-?Tmo in the world.
Had we come this long way merely to see
a reed shaken in the wind 1 Nay, wo had
come to see a Shaker, and behold, no Shak
er, not even the least that is, was visible.
It occurred to us to return to what appeared
to bo the 'store.' and seek information. It
was closed fast liko the other houses, as if
no customers wero desired, and it was only
after persistent knocking that the door
opened part way and gave to our view the
vision of a thin, tall, angular female in
scant, plain skirts, whose severe face was
neither an invitation to the monastic life
nor a promise of information. We were
put in the position of intruders upon some
thing holy and unattractive. But what
right had we (children stained with the
world) to expect civility and an angelic face
in a person set to guard the portals of cell
bacy and uon-resistance, a woman who for
filly years had been hardening into the at
titude of setting ber face against the world ?
Words were not wasted on us. Could we
enter tho house ?
And we felt that we were not worthy to
do so. Could we have the key to the meeting-house
And the refusal seemed just. Could we
go into any of tho houses ?
The door was now only a crack open.
Could we see anybody t
Find the Elder I'
And the door shut, decidedly. Even a
sweet virgin may get sour by standing too
The advice to find tho Elder was good,
but elders were as scarce as youngsters. No
person was In sight. We lounged down by
the wash-house, alongside of which ran a
sparkling brook, noiseless between its grassy
bauks. In the next building we heard a
hammering. Here, then, was life. It seem
ed to be some sort of a workshop. We en
tered. Nothing on the first floor. Above,
we at last found a door that would open. It
opened into a shoe-maker's shop, occupied
by a single man.
'Brother,' we said, 'can you ?'
'I aint no brother.'
'You are not a Shaker ?'
'Not much. I'm a shoe-maker. Hired.'
'Where, then, are tho Shakers V
'I dunuo ; in the fields, may be,' and the,
godless man slammed away on his lapstone
to the utter destruction of further couvcrsa
We went down discomfited. This, we
thought, is a strange community, where no
body will commune. Suppose we wanted
to j tin, bqw could we do It 1 Since one can
not be born into it, how does ho get in ?
The great barm behind the houses weri in
vitingly open, but they were as empty as
the houses appeand to be. Not a 'moo,'
nor a 'baa,' nor a 'bleat' to be heard. I
think we should have given up the quest of
truth, and gone away conviuced that the
Shakers had all been absorbed into the
ground, sunk down and not left even n
broad-brim above the pl.ice of their disap
pearance as a monument, if we had not at
the moment espied a little school-house hid
den iu the trees, and two pretty little girls
In the front of it, Mudying their lesson tin

lire of education in its sweetest form. Heav
en bo praised, here is life at last, and the
very beginning of it I We sauntered down
toward the spring of knowledge and began
a conversation with the little maid, who re
plied without fear or flutter to our questions
in the simple 'yea' and 'nay' of their order
as modest In demeanor as they aie quaint
In speech. But the Interview had not gone
far when It was interrupted by an appear
auce that made shakers of us all.
Tho school-marm stood in the door way,
MotberJAnn I looked you so In the sweet
ness of your spring-time, when, perchance,
you stood iu the porch of tho Manchester
cottage among the English roses 1 Perhaps
not. I think not, then, tn unworldly fair.
The school-marm wore a white cap, a whllo
apron over her short gray skirt, and a lav.
ender silk kerchief was crossed over her
breast. The formality of tlilr neat niinpllc

her face. Tho maid stood In the door-wa)

At the Instance of a soldier's widow, who
writes from Darby, l'n., The Jltcortl has tak
en some pains to ascertain from tho Com
missioner of Pensions the following facts In
rfgard to decisions under the recent pension
act, which may bo found of geneial interest
If n derrasrd soldier was a pensioner at the
time of his death, and nt that time hail chil
dren under sixteen years old, an l lelt no
widow, tho children arc entitled to arreara
ges of pension under the act, If such soldier
left a widow she is entitled to tho arrearages
and they arc not. If ho was not a pension
er at the time of Ills death neither she nur
they aro entitled to a pension and arrearages
even though he may have been. His failure
to obtain n pension for himself bars both
the widow and children. But if, before, his
dcath,ho had made application for a pension,
the widow or children, as the caso may be,
aie entitled to the pension and arrears If his
application Is granted. Iu other words, the
fact of his death In nowise affects an applica
tion he may have made, and such applicn
lion carries with it the right to arrears, but
Bl'lcr his death neither wife nor children
have the right to enter an application.
The Commissioner says that it is impossi
ble to give a general decision which will
cover nil cases. Almost every caso raises n
new and knotty question as to the construc
tion of statutory law. Out of this unccr
tainty there arises much misconception.
TIib claimant's best plan is tn state his or
her caso and patiently await decision, with
out relying too Implicitly upon what may
have been done iu other cases imperfectly
understood. 1'hila. lleoord.
