OLD Farmer lirownlee was movjug
alowly across his big. onion iield.
He '* as on bis hands and kneee, acd h.s
iiead va- l*eni. low so that hkt ncar
e:ghtedey«'«could distinguish the weeds
ninong the tLny, Tipright onion pelt ts.
Nov. ar.d then hi raised himself wearily.
His Viaclt was too old and rheumatic for
puch work, and he wished that one of
his boys had cho? n to be a fnrrr.er In
stead of a busiLe-H or profeasior.al man.
When at hom< they had taken nil -uch
work u» tiii.- from him, but now tlielaftt
or.a of them v. ;s pneking hi* tn.r.'k for
the city, and hereafter he rnufcl do his
own chorea and onion weeding. We_l,
he would not complain; the boy; had
bettered them*elv..s, and thut was what
he most, desired.
When he reached the end of the row
he fctraightentd his shoulders v.lth a
iigh of relief. Then a look of surprised
inquiry came into hit face. He thought
he kr.ew«-very boy In the neighborhood;
but there, from the topmott rail of his
f' nee, a rrgged, unknown hoy < f
' f2 or 33 woe reg-ardlng him earnestly.
As he looked up the boy grinned conci.-
"What i« them things you're surare*
' fill "liout tendln', mister?" ho fu-ktd.
Farmer Itrownlee'h face darkened. I
The liVea that anyor»e could be eo lg- ,
norant as not to recognise growing on- j
ic4i» never entered lib. head.
"None of jour Mas, boy," he eald,
1 angrily ; "an'just siippoie you git down |
' off that fence. Fust you know there* I i
' be a rail broke, or Ruthin'."
The boy sprang nimbly to the ground; j
! but it, was on the inflde of the fence and i
J not on the outside, as the old man had ]
, Intimated.
"I'd like awfully well to know what !
they be, mister," he Mild, as he lKf.it !
down to examine the green, needle-like j
points. "I've )>ceti watch In' you a long
time, an' 'apcrse likely they're some ex
tra lice posies, you're so careful of 'em. j
But «ay. If you don't ntiud, I'd Mke to :
try a raw of 'em across. I b'llcve I can !
do it."
The look of anger ou Farmer ISrown
lee's face became uno of astonishment.
A boy anxious to weed onions! und not
know what they were. Two phen' mi
ua that made him ulxiiost speech let:
IJIB boys had always been willing to dc
the work for him, buthecould not. rt>
member that, either of them hnd ever
seemed anxious for tli" Job.
"Not—know —on lone' Well, tb< t
lieatn roe!" Then u rjulrzical look came
Into hla I d'kuow'w I mind yo.i
goiri' across aud iiat k. I'll sit uruli i
this tree an' sort o' k« ep nn o%enilgl/.
You must be earcftd an' lK»t ptill up
any onions An' say," at the boy
dropped on his kne'-a u>.tilde one ol
the rows, "you haven't told rne yovi
namO yet, nor where you come from "
"Boy Cooper; an' Fm Oiie of the
ii' sh-air boys ovei ut that fnrmhouM
t'other side the hill."
"Urn! yes; I b'lleve I did hear ttol
I'i rklus speak of tuklu' some street
fur a week. ('l.t/.V idee, 1 thought
For ♦Wine minutes he watched the l»oj
dubiously; then fhe uncertainty left
his face, and hn leaned back comfortably
against the tre*
"Mighty spry with his linger*, an'
till!' * It IV ui;«- ■ * rn>
thought, approvingly "Do the work
twice as fast a* I can, If lie la a greeny
U'inl rntfkln' of another good farmer
lost iti him, I e'pose." Here his eyes
cl'>-ed, aiid they had not opened W'he i
the boy came beck on his eecond row.
A sharp *crtitlny, Hob turned
to the third row and again wend*-d Mi
way slowly acroMt the Held. As he rose'
from the. sixth row he heard tin sharp
eiung of a bell. Going} to tin" old man,
he touched him lightly on the shoulder
' I guess likely that'* yout dlnrtel
bell, mister," ho outd.
"Dinner bell? Hhol ahol Talnl
nine o'clock yet. I only }ist shet my
eyes a minute." He glanced up at the
sun, then down, at the newly-deeded
onions and his fA«e lengthene<l into In
credulous astonlahment. "You don't
mean you've weeded six row it! Why
that'* much a* my obstinate old back'll
let me do In a whole day." Again the
dinner bell sounded. "Yes, that's tut
me, sure enough Won't yon come In
an' eat wilh me?"
"No; Mis' I'erkins'll wonder where
I've gone. Hut If you don't mind I'll
come buck soori's I'M* eat. I'd like t«.
try them onions again."
"Mind! I should think not. Fin al
ways glad to run uerooa audi help."
It, was nearly half a milt* to Solomon
I'erkins', but when the old man re
turned to his onion Ib id he found Hot
liK'-ivdy there and well down In Ida n v
euth row.
They work«-<l until dark; then lhen.li,
man t<sik out his pocketbook Hoi
shook his head and grinned "I don'l
want no money, mister; bat if you'l
let me cotiiei again to-morrow I'll b*
much obliged."
"Come all you want to. 'J here'i
plenty of wfirk, an' we can settle whei
we're through Hut It seems sort o:
hard lor you to come down here on ii
vacation IIU' then woik all tin- time."
"Oh, that's all right, I like farm
in';" anil with a »|ulck spring In* win
over the fenee and running acroe* th#
It took three day* to weed tin
onions, and when they were finlahco
the old man again t<»ok out hi" pocket
ltook, but again Hob hook his head
The old man lookeil perplexed.
"Com*, come, Isiy take the money,*
he urged. "I don't, want noboih It
work for me fur not hi 11' Yoti'vc
alrm d It, every cent "
Hob ahuflled Ills feet nn«l looked at
the old man eldaway* "I 'lldn't cunt
foe no tnoßev," he snl<!'; "hut thrre'i
*ot>iethlng else line has my work
•utted ?"
"Y'-e; good woik't* I ever litul I'd

The boy'aeyeasparkled
"An' won It 1 you lis wlllln* tt» hire a
man, t<e»V" he askedv eagerly; "one
who could work lot* l»ett«r than me?"
"No, Ih a veil't work fortwo hands "
The eager countenance fell
"I thought may If you would," arid
Il'ili begun fo climb <>ver the fenci de
jectedly. "We winKln't ask much
wages, an' we'd work like any thing "
"In he Home of yout folks?"
"Mv d..d "
"tj'ln! Wall, tfwra'll be no fiouble
