accepted his theory ani his further
statement that it w is a mildness sin
gula rlarly adapted to learness without
misgivings. The boy was himself
chewing vigorously on.a large quid,and
launching the jujee from his lips right
and left like a growu person, and my
boy took as large a bite 'as his benefac
tor bade him. He found it as sweet as
he had been told it was, and the apt
ne s of its name of molasses tobacco.
It seemed to him a golden opportunity
to acquire a noble habit oh easy terms.
He let the quid rest in his cheek, as he
waterhud seen men do, when he was not
crushing it between his teeth, and for
some moments he poled his plank up
and down tl e canal-boat with a sense
af triumph that nothing marred.
1 hen all or a sudden he began to
feel pale. The boat seemed to be go
ing round an I the sky r elin.j over
head. The sun was dodging about
very strangely. Drops of sweat burst
from the boy's forehead; he let fall his
pole and said that lie thought that he
would :o home. The fellow who gave
him the tobacc b? a.i to laugh and
the other fellows to mock, but my boy
did not mind them. Somehow he did
not know how he got out of the canal
boat and started homeward, but at
every step the ground rose as high as
his kuee before him, and then, when
he got his foot high enough and began
to put it down again the ground was
not there. He was deathly sick, as he
reeled and staggered on. and when he
reached home and showed himself,
.bite and haggard, to his frightened
mother, he had scarcely strength
enough to gasp out a confession of his
attempt to retrieve the family honor
by learning to chew tobacco. In an-
ithe. moment nature came to his re
ief, and then he fell into a deep sleep
which lasted the whole afternoon, so
that it seemed to hiiu the next day
when he awoke up glad to find himself
d ve, if not very lively.
Perhaps he had swallowed some of
the poisonous juice of the tobacco, per
haps it hud acted upon his brain
without that. His father made no very
close inquiries into the facts, and he
lid not forbid him the use of tobacco.
t was not necessary; in that one little
x peril uuiit he had got enough for u
whole life-time. It shows that after

everything. William Dean Jlotveil n
