There was no need for Arthur to ask
any questions, when he was roused in
the middle of the second night after
Uncle Plan's departure. He realized at
once what was required of him, and the
heaviness of sleep instantly vanished,
leaving him keenly wide-awake. Step
ping softly from his bed, he quickly
dressed, while the old negro gathered
together every tiling belonging to his
"lil marse," and placed the things in a
corn sack that he had brought for that
"Is that yo' book, honey?"' ho whis
pered, noticing the volume of fairy tales
lying on tho bed.
"Yes. that is ray own precious book,
that tho beautiful lady pave me; but
don't put it in tho bag, Uncle Phin; I
want to carry it myself."
Then the thoughtful little fellow,
sinco ho could not bid Cynthia good-bye,
and feared sho might feel hurt If he
went away without a word, begged his
companion to wait just a minute, while
he wrote her a note. Ho wrote It by the
bright moonlight, on a bit ot brown
paper, with the stump of a lead pencil, so
that it was not a very elegant production,
but it answered its purpose, and was
tenderly cherished for many a day by
the little girl who received it tho next
morning. In it, in a big, scrawling, boy
ish band, was written:
"Dear Cynthia: I have been so much
trotfble here, specially to Aunt Nancy
and Dick, that I am goinft away with
Uncle Fin, to find another home. I love
you dearly, and sometimes I hope 1 shall
Come back and see you. Good-bye, from
"Your loving oousin, Arthur."
Although the old negro was In a hur
ry to be off, he waited patiently while
Arthur slowly wrote this note To him
writing was oru> of the most mysteritn*
and difficult of arts; and, gazing admir
ingly at tho young penman, ha stir
mured to himself:
"What a fine lilly gen'l'man him be,
to bo shuah. Iltm only ten year ole;
but sottin' dar an er wrltin' liko ho was
a hundred."
When tho note was finished it was
pinned to tho pillow of the cot bed; and,
with a lingering look at tho placo that
had sheltered him for a year, tho child
stepped out and softly closed tho door.
Then, clasping his precious book tightly
under his arm, and trustingly following
tho old negro, Arthur started on the
wonderful journey that was to change
tho whole course of his lifo, though he
was still ignorantof thoir destination.
When they were safoly behind tho
barn, out of sight and hearing of the
house, Uncle Thin stopped and said:
"Dero's only ono t'ing trubblin* dis
yeah 010 woolly head. Will you tell,
honey, fer shuah, what way do ribbui
ober yander is a runnin'?"
"Which, tho Allegheny? Why south,
of course," answerod Arthur, wondering
at the question.
"Dat's what I 'lowed it done!" ox
claimed tho old man. "I knowed it
didn' run yeast, kase dat ar' way do sun
rise, an' X knowed it didn' run wes\
kaso dat ar' way him a settin'; but I
wasn' rightly shuah liira didn' run to do
norf. I was figgorin' all do time dough
on hiin runnin' to do soul, an' now
wo'll git back to ole Virginny easy an'
"To Virginia!'' cried Arthur, in dis
may. "Aro wo going to try and go way
to Virginia, Uncle Phin?"
"Ob coso we Is, honey. Wo's or
gwino to Virginny, an' Dalecourt, an'
yo gran'paw, an' de 111 010 cabin by do
magnole troo. Wo is gwino to go 'omo
shuah 'nough, honoy."
"But how aro wo over going to travel
so far?"
"You'll seo, honey. You'll seo d'reck
ly," chuckled the other. "I'se got a
great s'prise In sto' fer you. Hyar's do
kerrldgo a waitln' on us now, an' Mista
Bailas is gwino dribo us to do kyars."
They were now on tho road, at
some distance from tho house, and
as Uncle Phin spoke, Arthur saw
drawn up to ono sido in the
shadow of a clump of trees Braco Bar
low's team and leaning against tho
light wagon tho young man himself.
"Oh, Brace!" ho cried, springing for
ward the moment ho saw who it was.
"I'm so glad! I didn't want to go away
without seeing you again. Are you
really going with us?"
"I wish I could go with you all the way,
my boy, and seo you safe to your jour
ney's end, but you know I can't leave
my old mother. So lam only going to
glvo you a lift for a little way and seo
that you get a good start. Jump in
quick now, for we've got a long drivo
ahead of us and I must be back by day
As tho spirited horses dashed away
over tho moonlit road with Arthur
nestled between Brace and Uncle
Phin on tho single seat of tho
wagon, tho boy learned bow it hap
pened that his friend had boon induced
to aid them in their flight. Undo Phin
had gone directly to him two nights be
fore, and roused his indignation by de
scribing the unhappy lifo his young
charge was loading, and how much he
suffered at the bands of Mrs. Dustin and
her children. Tin n ho told Hraoo of
Dalecourt, and gave him to understand
that Colonel Dalo was ready to receive
his grandson with open arms, whenever
bo should go to him.
Tho kind-hearted young follow, enter
taining a sincere regard for tho llttlo
chap who had recently rendered him so
great a service, readily agreed to a plan
that promised so much of good to the
boy, anil willingly consented to assist
him and Undo Phin to make a start on
their journey. 110 devoted two whole
days to tho task of preparing for It, and
did so much more tlian Undo Phin had
dared ask or hope for, as to win the old
man's everlasting gratitude anil render
the first stage of thoir journey compara
tively easy.
For some time Arthur enjoyed
the exciting night ride over tho
steep mountain roads, across deep
valleys, and through forests, all
haOiaul tu t.h« i/luriuus. unclouded moon
light. Ito did not asjk wtiither bo was
being taken. Nestled warmly botween
his two best friends, ho felt perfectly
safe and happy. lie knew that they
would do what was best for him, and tho
very mystery and uncertainty attending
this part of tho journey had lent it a
fascination. At length his weary head
nodded, tho heavy eyelids closed, and,
sound asleep, ha was unconscious of his
surroundings until tho horses stopped
and ho attepke to find himself being
lifted from tiie wagon.
There was a gleatn of moonlit water
in his oyes, and as he dimly realized
that he was on the bank of a river,
strong arras boro him into the cabin of a
queer-looking crafk that lay moored to
tho forest trees, lloro tho boy was
gently laid down and was vaguely con
scious that Braco Harlow vas bidding
him good-bye, when tho sleepy eyelids
apain closed and the child passed on into
Tho young man stood looking at the
sleeping boy for a full minute. As he
did so he said, softly: "Dear little chap!
I hate to have you ro away and to think
1 may never see you again. Hut I sup
po£o It's the best thing to be done or I
wouldn't have lifted a hand to help it
along. I only hope it will come out all
right, and that you'll have a happier
life in the place you're going to than you
ever could have bad here. God bless
It was a benediction as well as tho
farewell of one bravo soul to another.
As ho uttered it the young man slipped
a bank bill between two pages of tho
book the boy had clasped so closely, but
which hail now fallen from his hands.
"It's little enough," ho said to him
self, as he turned away, "but it's all I've
got, and may be it will help him out of
a fix some time." Then he went out to
assist Undo Phin, who was casting off
tho fastenings of the boat and prepar
ing to push it from the shore.
In another minute tho olumsy little
craft had swung clear of tho bank and
was moving slowly down stream, in tho
shadow of the great trees that grew
to the water's edge. Hrace Barlow
watched it until it beeamo a part of
the shadows, and he could no longer dis
tinguish the white-headed flguro bend
ing over the long sweep, that was made
bo do duty as a steering oar, or rudder.
Then ho again mounted the seat of his
light wagon, and started on his long
homeward drive, feeling more lonely
than he had over felt in all his lifo.
-1 The craft on which the old man and
the sleeping boy were now slowly
:driftingdown tho broad, moonlit stream,
;was a tiny house-boat, such as are com
mon on all American rivers. It had
floated down, empty and ownerless,
with the high waters of tho preceding
spring, and had stranded, and had been
left by tbc receding flnnd, nt tho point
whero Uncle Phin discovered it somo
weeks before. It was a small, flat-bot-
. tomed scow, on which was built a low
'house, ten foet long and si& wide. This
, house contained but a single room; and
[beyond It, at either end, the deck of the
;scow projected about four feet. At each
fond of the house was a door, and on
'each side a square hole or window that
fclosed with a wooden shatter.
' At tho stern was a steering
, oar, as has been stated. It hung
'on a swivel and its long handle
iprojected up over the end of the roof, on
' which tho steersman stood. From each
'side of tho roof hung a long, heavy
'sweep, hy means of which the craft
jmight be slowly propelled, or turned in
'any desired dirocticn. When not in
(use, the lower ends of these could be
lifted from the water by ropes attached
,to thoir blades, and fastened to the sides
of tho house. A rude ladder reached
from each of tho little end decks to tho
top of thereof. The whole affair was
strong and is good condition; but rough
and unpainted.
! When It came down with the flood and
stranded on the river bank, It contained
:nothing in tho Bhape of furniture save a
[couple of rude bunks built against the
[sides, the same number of rough
(benches, and several shelves put up
fliere and there In convenient corners,
j Uncle Pliin had not thought of inak
'ing use of this stranded craft, when he
j first found It among the trees that he
! was marking to bo cut down for tiro
[wood. Ho slept in it ono night, and
, merely regarded It as a convenient shel
'ter that ho could occupy wlien working
In that distant and lonely place. When,
(however, ho and Arthur conceived the
s idcaof running away, and he made up
Ills mind that if they did, it must bo to
{travel in the direction of Dalecourt, a
vision of tho llttlo old house-boat
crossed his mind.
j If it could only bo got into tho water,
and should prove to bo tight and sound,
'how easy and pleasant it would bo to
'float down the river on it. Whenever
they had gone as far as they saw lit by
! water, they could probably sell the boat
for enough money to meet their ox
.penaes on tho rest r> 1 the journey. It
,soeined a fine scheme, and Undo Phin
hastened to lay It before Braco Barlow
and ask his advice concerning it.
The young man listened to It with
jgreat Interest, and th«n they drove
V> take a loOk at tho stranded craft.
J After a careful examination Bruce said
'that, with a little calking of its seams,
the boat could bo mado tight and river
worthy, and that Undo I'hln's plan
'seemed to him a first-class one. Ho
furthermore offered his own labor, and
'the uso of his team, to help prepare tho
craft, for Its voy»#e. and get it onco more
i This offer was most gladly accepted,
'and the two succeeding days had been
Uusy for both men and horses. 11
]was found necessary to make several
trips back and forth between Braco Har
row's house and the "Ark," ns he called
the boat. There tbey calked her open
seams, and smeared them thickly with
'pitch. They constructed a rudo track,
ot straight, young tree trunks, from the'
Imat to the water into which, aided by
rollers, long levers tknd the horses, they
'ttn&lly succeedod-Jn launching her. 1
1 A ftftr this they hadthe sweeps to inako,
i»nd. as they had no stove, Uncle I'hin
ibuUy» ru<lo flfo-placc In tho, middle of
TTJIS ho did by forcing a square of large
: rocks, Ailing it with small stones and
'.covering the whole with a thick layer of
'earth. Th«y filled the "bunks with sweet
fresh straw and made pillows of two
tlour sacks stuffed with the same matori-
J. Draco Harlow covered one of these
bunks with a ooarse sheet and a blanket
drawn from his own slender stock of
household goods. Uncle T*hin had his
own bedding, that consisted of a thin
old artuy blanket and a tattered comfort
er. He also had an axe, that was the
only piece of valuable property that he
Then Hrace Harlow bought several
cooking utensils, a few dishes and a
small supply of provisions, to which he
added potatoes and a dozen eggs from
his own little farm.
When all this had been accomplished
the two men surveyed their work with
great satisfaction, and nothing but his
duty to bis mother prevented Hrace
Harlow from joining the party and mak
ing the voyage down the river with
From information furnished by I'ncle
Phin the young man gained an idea that
tho greater part of their journey was to
lie performed by water, and that Dale
court was somewhere in West Virginia,
within a few miles of the point to
which tho ark could be navigated.
This was also Uncle Phin's idea when
he learned that, tho river on which his
craft was launched flowed into tho Ohio,
which in turn washed one of the borders
of West Virginia. This now name meant
nothing to him. There had been but
one Virginia when ho left it, and even
of its extent he had not tho slightest
conception. 110 imagined that, once
within the borders of the State, it would
be a simple matter to discover and reach
his old home. All he knew of travel
ing and distances was, that when ho
followed his younp mistress to New
York, the journey occupied less than
two days, and that the ono from New
York to the oil country had been accom
plished in about tho same space of time.
So now, while he was well aware that a
boat, drifting with the current, would
not travel quite as fast as a train of cars,
he did not for a moment doubt that two
or three weeks, or a month at the very
most, would see them safely established
between tho stately magnolias of Dale
Ilad ho known that between the
placo whore they must leave their
boat and their destination, thoro
stretched a weary distance of nearly
five hundred miles, much of which was
across rugged mountain ranges, it is
probable that even his stout heart
would have Shrunk from so great an
undertaking. But ho had no knowledge
of this; and, as happily ignorant of what
was before them as was his beloved
"lil marse," now sleeping so peace
fully on his bed of straw, the old man
floated contentedly over the gleaming
waters, and recalled bright pictures of
the dear old home he hoped so soon to
The night was far advanced, he was
. worn out with tho fatiguing labor of the
preceding two days, there was no sound
to disturb him, and so, after awhile, his
head sunk low over tho steering oar,
and ere long ho, too, was fast asleep.
Thus, with no wakeful eye to de
termine her course, the ark drifted on
through tho night; now in deep shadows
of great hills or dark forests; then across
long stretches of silvery moonlight;
herecaughtby an eddy and turned slowly
round and round; thero held for u mo
ment on the point of some glistening
sandbar, from which she would slowly
swing off and again move ahead.
While the occupants of the boat still
slept tho moonlight paled before the
rosy dawn of a new day, and at lost a
mischievous boam from the round, red
sun, just peeping over tho Eastern hills,
found its way into the little cabin, and
shone full across Arthur's eyes. In a
moment the boy was wide-awake and
gazing upon his strange surroundings
with tho utmost bewilderment. He
heard no sound, perceived no motion,
and had not the faintest idea that he
was on a boat. Ho only wondered whose
this strange house was, where It was,
and what bad become of Uncle Phin, of
whom be could seo no sign.
Ho almost expected to hear his Aunt
Nancy's harsh voice calling him. Then
thoevents of the preceding night came
slowly back to him; and, with a thrill of
joy, ho remembered that ho was far
from her dreaded presenso and had
actually started on a journey toward his
own dear mother's beautiful home.
But he must get up and find oat
whore he was, and what bad become of
Braco Barlow and Undo Phin. At tho
very moment he stepped from his straw
filled bunk, thero came a crash, and a
shock that flung him to the floor. At
the same Instant ho heard a frightened
pry and a loud splash. Regaining his
foot he sprang to ono of tlx- little doors,
and looking out saw nobody. Then he
ran to tho othor with the same result.
110 was evidently alone on some sort of
a boat, which at that moment was
drifting beneath a great iron bridge.

Jaundice auil Other DUoafi rr«luc«d bf
Tight Lacing.
A case of jaundice dae to movable
kidney has recently been reported by
Dr. White, a physician to Guy's hospi
tal, London, which throws somo light
upon the fact long ago observed that
jaundice aj«l gallstones occur much
more frequently in women than in men,
and especially lit women who are ad
dicted to tight lacing. In I)r. White's
case the right kidney was movable, aad
he believed the jaundice to be produced
by the pressure of the kidney upon the
gall duct. In his account of the case
Dr. White quotes Landau as saying
that jaundice is more common in women
with movable right 'kidney than in
others. That the right kidney is fre
quently movable in women who aro ad
dicted to tight lacing Is, we think, fully
established by the statistics which we
have collected and published upon this
subject. Wo found mobility of the
right kidney in nearly one-third of the
adult women who had been addicted to
tight lacing, in two hundred women
who were carefully examined upon this
point. It is not surprising that so much
mischief results frota tho common prac
tice of wearing tho clothing tight
about tho waist; the only marvel is that
still greater mischief does not follow
this pernicious practice. Tho kidney is
displaced and rendered movablo In oon
sequenco of compression of tho liver,
■which would doubtless suffer far mow
than it does HS tho result of abuse,
were it not for the remarkable recuper
ative property possessed by this inter
esting organ. A German experimenter
has shown that tho experiments of Von
Meiste* and Fouflk have shown that
tho liver repnWl^os, portions
