Now England home, at tho brcaking'out of tho Rebellion, lived a boy nineteen yearsold. Ho was abrlght quick-tempered fad, who was always getting Into trouble, yet whom every body liked. From tho excitement of enlisting and tho speech-making on tho corners bf tho streets, ho would go homo full of enthusiasm. He was youug and strong, well, and willing. His father did not heed him, but his mother's oyo would fill with tears, which was always too much for him. .His llttlo slstor Nclllo whom ho loved with all his heart was another blockado ho had not cour ago to run. But there came a night when ho went homo with a palo face, and a determin ed look In his dye, and then they nil know that he had enlisted, and after that hls mother went quietly and sad ly about fitting him off, and Nclllo h)d herself oway lu odd cpruers, or In, her own room, so that Paul should not kuow how'very hard" it was, for sho meant to bo bravo. And tho day camo, when ho marched away with thu regiment as a private. The army'lay on tho Potomao, as wo know, many mouths, much of tho.tlmo in great danger, when its safety.dpend ed largely on picket mem It camo Paul's turn ono dark nighty aud'ho had thai day. been caring in his, bungling boy 'way for a siji: comrade. ' Rough men and careless boys grew tender and thoughtful lu thoso.days, wlion thero was no genllo sisters and mothers near. Paul stood by his post, watchful tho night through, though his eyes would 'go shut sometimes, but ho propped them open with thoughts' of home, mother, Nellie, and tho old school time's. Tho next.' morning tho regiment was oidcrcd to move. Paul's friend was only able to march by his' side, by be ing allowed to rest occasionally, and by having Paul carry his musket aud knap sack, which ho had ' all day, his 'own kuapsack hanging over ono ohoulddr, and Tom's over th$'ther, and' tho guns wherever ho could find au easy placo for them. But when the night came, and tho army halted, word was sent that Tdm, his sick friend, had been de tailed for picket duty. Paul was lamo and core, and had no idea-wherohawas tired tho most, he wa3 so tired all over, but h? knew Tom could not do It ho had just put hinidntho bunk, his face and bauds burning with fever. Ho tried to forget how tired he was, and went over o tho 'Captalh's tent' du( told hlui that Tom could not watch, but tliqt ho would tako his , placo. Tho captain merely nodded h'is head and turned again to his wilting. Was It tho Cap taiu's business to know what his privates had been doing? A palo young, faco was none or his affairs: So Paul had turned away also and was soon marching to and fro wearily wondering If ho could keep awako till morning, and that little word which meaug so much, death, would como to him, for lo know it would como lu n dreadful way If ho forsot himself. Those llttlo props ho had used beforo failed ono after tho otijer, and everything would grow misty, and then that terrlblo word would bring him hack. 'Agalu and again ho would loso himself, but ngaln gather strength and would walk his beat In a determined wayforailme. But ho finally stopped before' a huge treo and leaned up against Its' trunk, but sank down after a little, utterly lost to everything but' sleopq-and, thero they found him the next morning. And after a court-martial camo tho terrlblo order Paul Duncan waS to bo shot for 'sleeping at his post.' Tom wont to tho Captain and told him how lt'Was, that Paul wa&doing his duty that ho had watched tho night beloro, ?ut It was of no use, thgrpiwa- no help now, oniy a reprieve for a week.'-' - Paul sat down in his tent that night and wroto it all hoiuqto bls father. Ills mother and Nellie. . That little whito envelope took two days and llirco nights In Its journey, and then was opened , and tho letter read In tho homo and wbo would try to tell how' Nellie heard it through, and then n bravo thought camo Into her heart. Sho told her father and mother she was going to save Paul, nnd going to tho depot, film took the midnight train. Sho told the conductor her story, nnd hearts wcro open to sympathy In that dark time. Ho believed her nud helped her on, and sho was helped on and on through all the chnngoa elio needed to mako till sho reached Wash ington the morning of Ilia day Paul was to bo shot. Sho made her way to tho White House, and told tho black portor nt tho door that sliO' wanted to seo Mr. Lincoln, IIowas stronaly Inclined at first to turn her away. YIlat could so little a girl want pf so great a man? But her winning faco and her determin ed mannor finally won the dark man's heart, and ho allowed her to pass Into tho room whero sat tho grand and slmplo man whom wo delight to honor, llo was busily engaged, but sho went soft ly up to his sldo and stood quietly until ho should notice her, which he did very soon. r. Lincoln did not skip tho llttlo things, nnd was' not that what mado him so noble?, 'WpII, my llttlo girl, nnd what do you want?' 'Paul, sir, If you please.' 'And who is Paul?' My brother, sir, who Is to bo ihot to night for sleeping nt his post and ho was not to blame; ho stood 'guard for Tom, sir, becauso ho was sick, and ho stood for himself tho night before, and marched all day, sir, and carried Tom's knapsack, and ho could not help going to sleep, ho was so tired.? Mr. Lincoln had put his arm round Nclllo aud drawn her closer to him while she was talking, her faco so earnest nnd not a tremor In her voice, nis oyes were, misty befor? .she had finished her story,- and when sho was through' ho lifted her up on to hlskneo, asking her moro a'bout It. Then, lifting her gently, ho put her in his chair; telling her ho would, be back directly, weut out nnd telegraphed, countermanding tiio order. He was hack lu ten minutes. Ho told ITclllo what ho had done, then told her that thoy might not 'get tho telecrram, or nilght not understand, and tho safest way would bo to go themselves aud at tend to.it. A quick liaht of joy cover ed Nellie's faco. Tho President stooped down 'and kissed it, then took her hand In his, and they started for Paul. It was five o'clock in tho afternoon when they walked across tho camp giound, mid fouutl the soldiers draw'n up iu'llne, and In the distance, a tall, slender hoy standing nloile, with his: 1 eyes blinded. Nclllo dropped th6 hand sho was holding and rau across tho ground. In an Instant moro her arms were around Paul's neck, and her faco close to his. Tho man whom tho world lias learned, llttlo by llttlo, to understand, hail saved tho boy's Hfo.by going himself. Tho telogram had not been received. "GQiiifj.HlIcr I'-cUI-Hl." Tom Potts, a well-known loeoinntlvo engineer in Englrfnd ah'd tho States, Is tho Self-accredited herb of tho follow ing wonderful story of successful daring. I will narrate It as nearly as I can in hls'own wprds. I havo heard him' tell It often,': " Well, gentlemen, I say you'll think it's a lie, but I can't help that ; you havo' asked mo to tell It, and nil I can say is, If you'd been In my placo 'you'd havo seen it. "I had been driving tho Witch for About seven months, and a sweet thlug Eho was. I never was half so fond of an engines ns I was of her. Sho, was tho kind of machlno a mau only gets once in a lifetime. "Sho mado her steam quick, was easy on fuel, started off lively, and tyeiiUiko a deer. Iler cylinders were ,10-lnch, her stroke 22, and her drivers 7 feet 0, and she was .13 kind to handlo as a baby. "To seo herrunoHwlth a heavy load, light aud gay, was enough to shamo tho Juno, Venus, and Helen, and other 18 Inch machines, "Sho ncvor wanted fixing up, Venus was always going In and out of tho shop to bo titivated, and If there's wiy thing I don't llko It's an engine that all tho thuo wants to bo titivated. She wis always ready nnd willing for work. Why, bless you! sho was only washed out for tho, sake of cleanliness sho didn't neod 11 a bit. ''Sho was tho tidiest thing I ever 3cen seemed as though dirt wouldn't stick to her. "Well, what I am going to toll camo off years ago, beforo I left the old coun try, and H was ono of tho best railroads slnglo tracktlien, though lt'gpt threo now, and four In some spots. "Well, the Witch and I were put on tho mall, ono of the fa.tet trains, and they went like sixty In them days. "Thiicugl!ieevas fined u shilling for every inlnutOjlig. lost. He dared not go slow for fog, unless ho wanted to loso his day's pay. Ho had to keep going right along, and sec things beforo ho got In sight of 'cm. "Wo wero running north ono darkish wintry day, and were making our best streaks. I should reckon wo wcro going about fifty miles and hour. "I was saying to myself, 'she's going her prettiest,' when wo suddenly shot ahead, ns It wo had been fired out of a cannon. "I know what that mout. Wo had broko loose, wo hadn't a car behind us. The coupling had brokou between tho tender and tho first coach. "How we flow, tobo surol I whistled tho guard to break up tho train. How wo bounded along! "I could mako no objects alongside; wo seemed to go faster; wo must havo got as fast as 100 miles au hour. "It was a straight piece of track for some miles. I did not shut off steam directly we broko, for I 'didn't want tho train to run Into us, which might hap pen If they did not hear mo whistle for down breaks. "It was lucky I kept her going, for just as r had h.id about ottough of such fiylng, a man started out about six hun dred yards beforo us, holding a red Hag, "Thero was nothing In tho way, so I knew something must bo wrong with tho track. "You might as well havo tried to stap a whirlwind as tho Witch in that dis tance. Her speed was frightful. "Thero wasn't much tlmo to think, and as wo could not stop, tho faster wo went tho better; so I gavo what moro steam there was. Sho seemed to havo sonio"go' in reserve, for wo shot past tho red flag Hko a flash, "I saw men standing Iiorror-struek.- "'Blll,' I said, 'quick! Get on tho coke, and seo what's ahead, t "IIo looked and went deadly palo, tottered, and fell back lu a faint. "By this time I could see plain enough what was wiong, ' "Thero was a gap In tho track whero 'a bridge had gono down. "You can't' Imagine my feeling Just then. Going to death death, swift and terrible, nt nbout two miles a mlnuto getting nearer, ncarerl I thought of my wife and child neaicrl An instant motp-'tho gap! '"God havo mercy,' I shrieked. "Well, would you bellevo It? that en gine Just cleared that gapl 'It w'as fifteen feet across, and about sixty feet deep. "Sho jumped that gap llko a stag, and what's more, sho struck tho rails all right on tho other sldo and kept right along, iust as If sho had not no ticed tho gap. "I stirred Bill up, and, with both of us nt tho brake, wo managed at last to stop tho, Witch, "Sho was on a. tear that, day, but I never dreamed she'd jump tho gap that's n fact." A young beauj at his sister's evenlog party last week, began to sing, "Why am 1 so weak and weary?" when a llttlo brother brought tho performance to a sudden closo by yolilng out, "Aunt Mniy says It's becauso you come homo so late, and drunk most every night." "Fred," said a youug man, walking up Main street, tho other day, listening to his wonderful Btory, "do you know why you aro llko a harp struck by light ning?" "No," says Fred, "I give It up.
