JACK SPROUT'S CONVERSION.
i Jack Sprout sworea terrible oath. In
fact, he swore quite a number of oaths,
for he was very angry. It was nothing
wonderful for Jack Sprout to swear,
even in the presence of his wife, for he
was sadly given to the habit of using
profane language. And yet Jack was
a good husband • an indulgent father;
an honest, industrious man ; an accom
modating neighbor; and he possessed
many other excellences of character
which might have made him a valuable
member of society, had it not been for
certain loose habits which had marked
his course from childhood. His parents
had been careless and profane before
him ; his father had been atough, rough
customer; so Jack naturally enough
Caine up in the same track. Buthe was
good looking, and kind hearted, and
genial and social,and so he had gained
for a wife one of the very best maidens
o f .4x foam, ast-weiLwa.ano of the band,
Master Freddy Sprout, aged live
years, stood by his mother's side, with
a sadly begrimed and tearstrenked face,
and his story was that Solomon Gordon
had whipped him with a stick, and the
boy's legs still bore a few slight tokens
of the castigation. Two other boys had
come home with Master Freddy, and
their testimony corroborated that which
the sufferer had given. Freddy, with
some of his playmates, had been throw
ing stones at Mr. Gordon's dog, and one
of the missiles burled by Freddy had
bit the animal and caused him to. howl
with pain. Of course, the stone thrown
by such a tiny hand, could not have in
flicted much injury upon the canine
brute ; but Solomon Gordon loved his
dog; and whetthe saw what had been
done be caught Master Freddy and gave
him a thrashing; for, be it known,
Solomon Gordon was just such another
man as Jack Sprout—warm-hearted,
generous, and neighborly; but rough,
uneducated, strong-willed, and impul

"Dear Jack," pleaded his wife, "don't
go out now."
"Let me alone, Abby. No man shall
strike a child of mine without having a
chance to strike me. I shall go and see
SoL Gordon, and I'll give him. such a
licking as be won't forget in a hurry!"
And Jack closed the sentence with a
"No, no, Jack—don't go. What good
will it do? Wait until you -are more
cool I" _ .
"Fshaw ! Go away, Abby. There is
npt power enough on earth to save Sol:
Gordon from a dubbing; and I'll give
it to him before the sun goes down!"
And as Jack Sprout looked at that
moment he gave awful evidence that he
was physically able to make good his
word; for a more magnificent structure
of frame-work and muscle was not to
be found in the town.
• "Dear Jack," cried the: wifel, .taking
-her husband by the arm, "Oh, do listen
to me one moment. Freddy, is not
much hurt; and he - ought not 'to have
thrown stones at Gordon's dog. You
know both Solomon and his wife set
everything by the little animal, and he
:would not bark at the boys if they did
not plague him. If. you n .go and .find
,Gordon yOu are now, You will only
make matters worse. Oh, I wish you
would dospit.'! • ; 7 . •-
' Jack only shook his head, inuf smiled
one of thososmiles which are terrible
-upon the face -of an angry man.
"0 Jack, If you only try the effect of
kindness upon Solomon ! He is a good
man at heart'
Jack interrupted his wife with a de
"Don't laugh tit me, Jack. I tell yOu
it would be better to . do so than resort
t 6 blows. If you were attacked I should
not blame- you for fighting to protect
yourself; but this is not a case that calls
for your etrength of muscle. There is a
bigger and a nobler strength that you
can use now."
"Oh!" uttered Jack, ''you are preach
ing. You are giving me some of your
Sunday , School lessons. But I don't
want 'ern'. You may experience relig
ion as much as you please: but you
musn't preach the stuirto me."
"Jack," spoke the wife, with stern
solemnity, "have I been any the worse
sincel began to have an interest in re
ligious things ?"
. "No, Abby-you were good, always." '
"Then Why will You not listen to me?
If you will stay with me now—if you
will wait until. your anger is cooled—
and then goad speak kindly to Sol
omon Gordon, I give you my solemn
pledge that you will feel a thodsand
times hetter than you-will if you—'
But Jack Would not hear his wife out.
He had sworn 'that he would thrash
Solomon Gordon, and he would keep
his word. Bla temper was at the boil
,ing point; 'and - he was fairly aching to
get his hands upon the man who had
dared to strike his boy; for Freddy was

hispet, and every blow that had been
laidupon the child's body had made a
mark of fire upon his own heart. So
he pot his wife away from him and
hurdled from the house, slamming the
doof after him.
Array went Jack Sprout with rapid,
mealy strides; and had Solomon Gor
don,fallen in his way just then he would
have most assuredly been severely beat
en ;Ifor though Solomon was a stout,
bold man, yet Jack was a very Her
Bat Jack was destined to get pretty
tholotighly cooled off before he met the
object of his wrath. As he approached
the bridge that spanned the river just
belew the falls, he-heard loud cries of
sham, and upon hurrying forward he
found that a boy had fallen from one of
the projecting timbers into the mater.
He looked over the railing, and saw the
little fellow coming to- the surface of
the:. foaming, boiling flood—a-curly
headed boy, just about the age of his
own. darling Freddy—stretching forth
his tiny arms in agony of despair. It
was a terrible place, that seething, roar
ingpool, where the waters of the great
river came pouring down from over the
high dam ; but Jack did not hesitate.
Heforgot every thing but the danger of
the little one—and only stopping to.
kick of his boots, and throw aside his
coat, he leaped down into the angry
field. He caught the boy in his arms,
and then struck for the shore. It was
a mighty conflict, but the strong Orin
persevered. More than once those who
had gathered upon the bridge and upon
the rocks had reason to fear that nei
ther the man nor the child would come
forth alive; but Jack held his own
agsinSt the mad torrent, and finally
reached the shore where many hands
were ready tohelp him. As for himself,
a few minutes rest so far restored him
Chet he was able to walk and he had

brdises. And as for the boy, he had
collie forth in safety, for Jack had held
hint high above the water during all
the time of his.strtiggle.
And when Jack Sprout had regained
his strength'and was able to speak, he
looked to see the boy that he had saved,
and he saw that it was Andy Gordon, a
bright eyed, curly haired, fair faced,
boy, not a year older than was his son
"Where's papa ?" asked the dripping

Jack looked up, and saw Solomon
Gordon coming—Solomon, pale and
terror stricken—and with all possible
haste he seized his coat and boots, and
hurried away. He could not meet
Solomon Gordon then.
"Mercy! What is it, Jack!"
Mrs. Sprout was alarmed. Her hus
band was dripping wet, his step was
tottering, his breathing 'was labored,
and there was a livid mark upon his
forehead as though he bad received a
"It is nothing, Abby."
"Pshaw ! D'ye think Sol. Gordon
could have done this? I have been in
the river. A little boy had fallen from
the bridge right into the flood beneath
the falls. I jumped in and brought him
"Yes, alive and unhurt."

"Don't stop to ask qiiestions now,
Abby, but make me a cup of hot, strong
tea, while I get on some dry clothes.
My soul ! I think I had a narrow dodge
of it !"
Jack put on dry garments, and when
he had rested awhile be drank his tea,
and in the course of an hour all traces
of exhaustion had passed away.
"I tell you, Abby, I have had a good
many tough jobs in my day, but I never
had one like that before. A weaker
man than I could never have brought
out the , child alive."
0, how grand it is, Jack, o axe one's
strength in such a cause. But whose
child was it? Do you not know?
Before Jack could answer, the outer
door was unceremoniously opened, and
Solomon Gordon entered the apartment.
Abby shrank back in alarm whbn she
saw how pale and excited the man look
ed, and how he trembled, for she did
not notice the moist, brimming light
that shone in his swollen eyes.
" Jack !" spoke the new comer ' in a

I beat your child for a trifling thing, and
you have saved mine from a terrible

And then with sudden impulse—un

"Solomon, I tell you it's all right.

And so was cemented a friendship

A SHORT STORY, WHICH IS NO
You like stories? I dare say, yes. Let
me tell you a short one, which not only
contains tragedy but truth ; and I will
tell it as it was told me by one of the
principal actors, (a mild, straight-for
ward Berman,) and vouched for by his
friends and neighbors, who know all
the circumstances right well. In 55.56
there came to this country a German
family by the name of Schultz, whose
destination was New Ulm, Minnesota.
Now it is a fact that New Ulm is settled
entirely by Germans; there is but one
American living in that community,
and he is married to a German woman,
speaks German, drinks much lager,and
is said t,n be fond of sour kraut.
The family of Schultz consisted of
himself, his wife, and three children ;
the eldest, a sturdy young fellow, who
afterwards did good service during the,
Indian raid in August 1862, the second,
a daughter of eighteen, and the young
est, a beautiful girl of sixteen, who is
the subject of our story. The eldest
datighter had been affianced to a young
Getman farmer who was already settled
on 'a branch of the Cottonwood near
Nevt Ulm, having come over the year
before, taken a claim, and Improved it.
Of course there was a Dutch wedding
soon after the arrival of , the Schultz
family, and the plump, practicarG retch
en, dropped from the dreamy regions of
romance into to the sober ruts and rou
tine of backwoods matrimony.
In New Ulm, and, in fact, through
out Minnesota, the male element is dis
proportionately numerous ; add to this,
that the pretty Katherine was at once
pronounced the • most beautiful of all
the unmarried feminine arrivals for the
season, and that old Schultz was known
to be the possessor of two or three ,. thou
sand hard dollars, and it will readily-be
credited that the young beauty from
Faderland was besieged by suitors in a
way to tarn , to turn the head on an ol
der pair of shoulders than hers. It did
not turn her head at all. In A t i t he
baker offered to share his home r
tunes with the fair Katherine, alt gli
his business was good, his person pleas
ing, and his habits unexceptionable.—
In vain the proprietor of the best brew
ery in New Ulm (and they have seven
breweries there) laid profits and princi
pal at her feet. Even the village mer
chant, Yohan Miller, sued iu vain.—
Old Schultz was desperate ; one strong
inducement with him in emigrating to
America, had been _the separation of
Katherine and Jacob Kohler, the young
schbolmaster of the little German vil
lage where Katharine was born, whence
Old Schnitz had emigrated, and where
Jacob was still diligently teaching the
young Teutonic idea to " shoot" on cor
rect principles. The father coaxed,
wheedled, and promised her a thousand
dollars on the day she became the wife
of either the baker, brewer, or merchant,
but she remained obdurate as a rock.
Could it be that she was clinging fondly
to the memory of Jacob Kohler, whose
name she had not been heard to speak
since the family arrived at their new
home? Hardly a probable story, that
ayoung-girl would keep hasown coun
sel so wisely and well, in a love affair ;
however it would do no harm to know
how the matter really stood, so the father
went to the Post Master (who was a re
jected suitor) and there he learned, with
out the least difficulty, that a letter to
Jacob Kohler went from that office ev
ery other Monday with the regularity
of clock work. Ina woman's hand-wri
ting? "-Yes ; in the hand-writing of
the fraulein, your daughter." The post
master was avenged ; if he could not
succeed with the handsome Katherine,
he rather preferred that nobody in New
Ulm should be the successful rival ; a
prior attachment in the fatherland was
another thing of course; a thing which
broke the fall of self-love and pride
wonderfully. As to old man Schultz,
he went - home in wrath, and at once
called his refractory daughter to ac
count; the first question he asked her
was rather a business like one. •• How
many letters has that rascal Kohler sent
,you since you came onbere ?" Now,
in any " well conceive and faithfully
executed" romance, the proper thing
for a heroine to do under such circum
stances, would be to faint dead away,
bumping her head uncomfortably
against me corner of the dining table,
and only reviving after the sedulous ap-
• • ••• • —of __lmerrialbearn I
tent of a waterfall or two on reviving,
would add to the general effect, and
when I record what my heroine really
did, you will agree with me that there
was not the least romance about it. She
turned a pair of bright, candid blue
eyes on her father's face for an instant,
and then answered with the utmost se
renity, quite as she might have answer
ed any ordinary question, "between
fifty and sixty—l don't know exactly."
" Der Tuyfel !" ejaculated the - old
Man ; and then after a minute's reflec
tion, "Go and bring 'em—all of 'em ;.
I want to read every one." Instead of
going into hysterics, the dutiful Kath
erine, who probably Knew her father
better than you and I—marched off to
a plethoric Dutch trunk, whence she
returned with two bundles of letters,
tied—not with blue ribbon, but with
substantial buck-skin strings, which
she handed over to the old man, not
'without some blushing, and a little
trepidation. All that afternoon, all the
long December evening, old John
Schultz devoted to the faithful reading
and analyzing of that pile of love letters.
Long after the family were abed—all
but Katherine—he sat and pondered
the case with such utter obliviousness,
that he not only failed to observe his
daughter sitting in her favorite corner,
patiently knitting and waiting, but even
forgot to fill his long tailed China pipe,
without which he was never known
to decide any important question in a
manner at all satisfactory to himself or
others. At length he rose hastily, tilled
the big pipe to the rim and smoked fu
riously for five minutes, at the expira
tion of which he beamed through a blue
cloud of tobacco smoke and ejaculated
" Yes father," (interrogatively.)
" Don't go to bed yet."
"No,father." And Katherine went
on wit her knitting, while the old
man smoked slowly, and yet more
slowly, as the vexatious question began
to mix and dissolve with the gently
curling smoke, and thought, sober, van- I
did thought, superseded prejudice. He
had always opposed Jacob Kohler, had
said many hard, and some;, unjust Lb nisi
about him, and for what? Jacob wa,
poor, hut his conduct from ahoy up had I
been of the best, and as for learninv, I
what comparison could the brewer, the
merchant, or even the post master pre
to hold With him ? And then. his
letters ; so kind, so full of earnest, man
ly love, with not a peevish or disrespvet
ful word about the man who stood be
tween him and happiness.
Between? Not so certain about that;
for did he not gather from the letters
that the whole affair was arranged, that .
Jacob was to come out in thb following
April and marry the fair Katherine out
of hand? Well ; and ought, not a wo
man who is to live with a }wan us his
wife, to bar: her choice as to the man—
that is if she can get it. Then, the cool,
quiet business like manner in which
these young people had managed their
love affair, looked very much as though
they would be able to manage their own
affairs after marriage. At all events, it
was a course of true love, and bid fair
to run somewhere—if it did not run
smoothly, whose fault would: it be but
his, John Schultz's, standing between
his favorite daughter and her happiness,
like an obstinate old Dutcbrdan, as he
was; he admitted that, (to himself ).
Finally, taking the pipe from his mouth,
he knocked the ashes out gently—very
gently, and spoke.
