LED OUT - OF DANGEIL
BY Jr.v..c I:GELOW
Who is this? A careless little tuid-•
Shipman, idling abont - in a great city,
with hiS pockets full of money. He
is waiting for the coach; it comes up
presently. And, he goes on top of it,
and begins to look about him.
• The coach stops; the midshipman,
with his hands . in his- pockets, sits
rattling his Inouey and singing.
There is a poor woman standing by
the door of the village inn; she looks
care-worn, and well she may, for in
the spring her husband went up to
London to seek fur work. He goes
for work, and sbe was expecting soon
to join him there, when, alas! a fel
low workman wrote her wOrd how he
had met with an accident, how he was,
very bad, and wanted his wife to come
and nurse him. Bat as she has two
children and is destitute, she must
walk all the way, and semis sick, at
heart when she *thinks that perhaps
he may die among st:angers before
she can reach him.
She does not think.of begging, but,
seeing the boy's eyes - attracted to her,
she makes a courtesy, and ho with
draws his hand and throws her down
a sgvereign. She looks at it with in
crulous joy, and then looks at him.
" iys all right," he says, a'.d the
coachistarts again, while, full of grat
itude,'she hires a cart to take her
across the coatry to the railway,
that the , next night she may sit at the
bedside of her sick-hustiand.
The midshipman„, knows notion'
about that--and he never mill know.
The passengers go on talking—the
little midshipman as told them'who
he is, and where ho is going. - Bat
there is one who has never joined in
the. onversation; he is a dark-look
ing and restless man—he sits apart,
he sees the glitter of the falling coin.
and now he watches the boy more
closely than ho did before.
He is a strong Man, resolute and
determined; the boy with his pock
etsffull of money will bo no match
for liim. Ha has told the other that
his father's house is in the parsonage
at Y—, the coach goes within five
Inilvs of it, and ho means to got out
at. 11:o nearezit point, and walk, or
rather ran ov,:r to his homo' through

impossible that he can escape; the

chance of his escape; the half-fledged
bird, just 11nttered down

keen-eyed hawk than the little; light
hearted sailor boy will have against
-And now they have reached the
village where the boy is to alight;' Ho
wishes the other passengers "Good
evening!" and runs lightly down-be
tween the scattered houses. The man
has also got down, and is following.
:The path lies -through the village
churchyard; there is evening service,
and the door is wide open, for it 'is
warin. Thelittlo midshipman steals
up the porch, looks in and listens.
The clergyman has just risen from
his knees in the pulpit, and is giving

for us; he'remembers how, when he
left home, his bather prayed that' hh
"might be preserved - through every
danger; he does not remember any
particular dangex that ho hue been
exposed to, except in the great storm;
but he is - grateful that he 'has come
"home in safety, which he supposealo
will-be some day, that then the provi
dence of God will watch over and
protect him. And so he presses, on
ward to the entrance of the wood.
The man is theta before him. He
has pnahed himself into the thicket,
and cut a heavy stake; he suffers the
boy to go on before, and then comes
out, falls into the path, and fellows.
It iatoo light at present for his deed
of darkness, and too near the en
trance of the wood, but he knows
tlmt.shortly the , p athill branch o ff
into. - two, and the one for the
boy to take will bek and lonely.
But what prompts the little mid
shipman, when not fifty rods from .
the branching ` path , to break into 'a
sudden run? It is not fear—he nev
er dreams of danger. Some sudden
impulse, or some wild wish for home,
makes him dash out suddenly: after
his saunter, with a whoop and a
bound: On he goes as if tanning a
race; tho path bends, and the Mao
loses sight of him. " But I shall hare
him yet," he thihks; "he cannot keep
up that race, lon." The boy has
nearly reached the place *here the
path divides, when be starts
white owl, that, can scarcely fly as he
goes whirling along close to the
mound before hint. He gains upon
it; another moment and it will, be
his. Now he gets the start again;
they come to thebranching of the
path, and the bird goes down the
wrong one. The temptation to fol
low it is too strong to be resisted; he
knows that somewhere, deep in the
woods, there is across track by which
he cauNget into the track ho has left;
it is only to run 'a little faster, and he
shall be home nearly as soon.
On ho rushes; the path takes a
bend, 'and ho is just out of sight When
his pursuer conies where the paths
divide. The boy has turned tb the
right—the nian z;:kes the left, and
:he fAster tlioy both run the farther

Ti - io %chine, dwl.siilt lend: , him on;
the path gets darker and narrow; at .
List coI iinds that ho has missed it at

grunild. He flonnile:rs about among
the trees and stumps, vexed with him
self, and panting after hiti race. At
last ho is npOn antipik track, And
-pushes on as -fast as ho can. The
ground. begins sensibly, to .descend;
he has lost his way—but ho keeps
bearing on to the .left;, and though
it is now dark, he thinks ho must,
reach the Main path sooner or later.
Ho does not know this part of the
wcOd, but runs on. Oh, little mid.:
shipraau! Why did you chase that
owl? If you had kept the path with
the dark man behind you; there was
a chance that you might outrun Mtn;
or, if he had overtaken. you, some
passing wayfarer might hate heard
your cries, and , conic to save you.
Now you are running straight on to
death, for the forest waters are deep
and bla`pk at the foot of the hill. Oh,
that the moon would come out and
show it:to you!
. The moon is under a thick canopy
of heavy black clouds; and there is
not a star to glitter on the water and
make it visible: The fern under

the- gaping hill. At last be strikes
against a stone % stumbles , ' and falls.
Two minutes more, and he will fall
into the black Water. • •

With a good deal of patience, and
a grest 'many scratch's,. he gets free
of the thorn which had arrested his

But it is no* noon, and'as *con
tents of these plethoric dinner-canS
are being discussed, we will 'make
some inquiries of these miners 'as to
their labor, etc, We find they receive
from sixty-five to eightrfive cents a
lon for mining the coal, with due al
lowance forthe location' and atten
dant difficulties; they provide their
own Powder and tools, and can earn
from three to four dollars per day;
but during the rebellion they easily
increased these_wages three-fold. 4
very large pregortion of these men
are Scotch,' followed. by •
and Welsh, for very rarely do we
find an American miner. The ma
jority of these miners Immreenee to
or in the mines at the early age of
ten and twelve years, going in with
their parents, assisting the loading
of cars, driving the mules or tending
the doors used, for exciting . currents
of air for the purpose of ventilation.
Occasionally we find a miner between
fifty and sixty years of age stilrat his
postidelvingwith unabated activity,
but the majority are. largely under
thirty-five yaws- of age; their daily.
round of labor is necessarily arduous
and monotonous, and the damp; dusty;
laden air they inhale contributes not
little to undermine and soon break
down the most vigorous, though the
sanitary regulations and provisions
are ample and salutary to the fullest
extent. One instance was here re
lated of an old miner . seventy-four
years of age dropping down dead in
the mine with his pick in his hand.
They purchase none but the vorybest
of 'staplerovisions, and are - indeed
fastidiously particular in their- selec

They .are paid monthly, and no "pay
