THE BE Li Li OF ST. JOHNS.
BY RUFUS 8AKGENT.
In a huge and smoky foundry
close by the wharves in the town
of B , a gang of workmen
were getting ready to cast the
largest hell of the St. John's cathe
dral chime. Only an hour more,
and they would let the glaring,
bubbling metal, flowing from the
huge furnace into the mould,
which was "buried deep into the
black earth close by.
It was just at evening, and in the
gathering twilight the lurid blue
flames that burst from the top of
the tall chimney, flashed unearth
ly gleams upon the neighboring
windows and house-tops.
The scene within the foundry
was weird and almost awful. The
swarthy form3 of the workmen,
partly lighted by the yellow glare,
moved about like Tartarean shad
ows, and the sooty beams and
ponderous chains crossing, half
black, half gold en under the glowing
roof recalled the engines of Cy
clops under Mt. iEtna.
The town clock struck six. It was
time for supper. All the men
threw down the tools, and ran to
put on their outer clothing.
44 Be back in a half aa hour
sharp!" cried the fore-master.
44 We shall make the cast at a quar
ter to seven."
44 All right, sir," cried the men
"I hear some of the town folks
are coming down to see the work."
" Yes," said another, 4t and it'll
be something to open their eyes.
There was never such a bell cast in
the" whole State as this one will
In a moment more only one
workman and . the master were
left in the foundry. The former
was to stay and watch the 44 blast."
He had brought a double allow
ance of dinner, and he would make
a supper on what remained.
44 Perhaps ! we can get Inven
tor to stay with you, George said
the master, laughingly, as he pre
pared to go. 44 Yes, where is he ?"
returned the man in the same
44 He's been round tho works
long enough to know when any
thin goes wrong. Hallo ! hallo !
I say I Where's the Inventor?
Come here. Ah, there he is!"
And in silent answer to the . sum
mons, a shock haired fellow, with
large gray eyes, and a pale vacant
face, appeared from behind a pile
of castings. He had on his back, a
gray shirt much soiled with dust,
and he wore a pair of huge panta
loons, held up by a single suspen
der. Well, Mopus," quoth the man
George, slapping him rather rough-
Dt wit er
oulder, "suppose you've
enough to help yell if
any thing's the matter ?"
The young fellow looked stupid
ly around and nodded his head.
44 Then sit here and lock at that
furnace, and don't take your eyes
The poor lad smiled, and meek
ly did as he was ordered just as an
obedient dog would have laid
down to watch his owner's coat.
A queer fellow was this 44 Mopus;
stupid enough in ordinary things
to need a world of watching, but
withal wonderfully fit to watch a
furnace. He knew all the work
ings of the foundry, by what seem
ed to be a sort of brute instinct.
though really his sagacity iu ,ihis
was a remnant of a once bright
If anything happened, or went
on in an unusual way, he would al
ways notice it and say what ought
to be done, tliough he cou id not
tell perhaps why it should be done.
Two years before, he had been an
intelligent, promising lad. He was
the son of a designer connected
with the foundry company, and
had always been allowed free ac
cess to tffe Ihops, and , to minglo
with tlie men and watch their
work. But one day a great lifting
chain broke, with its lo ul and an
iron fragment struck him on the
head, inflicting a dangerous injury.
From this he partially recovered,
and only partially, for his reason
was i m pa red .But v? his natural
love for machinery aud mechani
cal experiments rem lined, and as
he regained his oodiiy .strength, he
spent ,m.t. of his vtiai . , making
small wheels and sli tfts, and put-1
ting together odd contrivances,
which he would exhibit with im
mense pride and satisfaction..
This ieculiar trait in tho young
fellow gained for him the humor
ous title of . 44 Inventor." All. the
men felt a great kindness for him,
even though their manner toward
him was occasionally harsh arid im
patient. Such was the person left to help
watch the great blast for the cast
ing of the king bell of the chime of
St. John's. Faithful he kept his
place before the furnace, while the
man George sat down at little dis
tant and began . to eat his supper.
Doubtless tho latter intended to
keep a general oversight but . he
certainly made the inventor's eyes
do the most of the looking.;
Whether he felt a kind of reckless
trust in the instinct of his half
witted companion, or indolently
conclued that nothing wrong could
happen, he was sadly to blame for
charging himself so little with the
important duty that was before
Not a word was said by either
watcher and only the deep roar of
the furnace was heard through the
George finished his supper, and
santered into one of the tool shops
to find his pipe. Inventor sat alone
before the great blast. Tho one1
rational faculty of his feeble mind
enabled him to comprehend what
in it meant, and even something of
the magnitude 01 the enterprise
that was ripening inside those
burning walls. lie knew that the
furnace was full of valuble metal,
and that close beside him, buried
out of sight in the deep sand, was
the huge mould, so soon to be filled
with the precious cast. He knew
and could see that all the channels
were ready, and that near the
mouth of the furnace stood the
long iron rod that was to be
used when the moment came to let
on the molten stream.
All this his limited thoughts took
in by habit. Dimly conscious that
something great was soon to be
done, he sat with his eyes on the
urnace, absorbed and intent.
Suddenly something startled him.
There was a slight noise, and a
)urning crack appeared near the
opoitne mrnace. men another
crack, and a scorching brick felUx
out and rolled to the ground at his
The lad opened his mouth to
shriek but so terrified was he that
the sounds stuck in his throat, as
if he had been in a fit of night
A thin red stream foil wed the fal
len brick, and trickled down the
furnace side like running lava.
Then came another alarming noise,
and a thin gap half way down the
masonry let out more of the hiss
ing metal. . ,
Where was George? Was the un
faithful fellow still huntinc for.his
pipe? The furnace was bursting
with only a poor, half idiot lad to
guard it! What . could he do?
He did what perhaps a lad in his
right mind would not have dared
to do. Bushing to the mouth of
the furnace, he seized the long iron
rod! that stood near, and tapped
the vent. One desperate thrust
with the sharp point up the terri
ble tunnel a few quick, , prying
strokes! Stand back now 1 The
confining clay fell away, and
yellow-white flood spurted out with
resistless force. It leaped into the
claylined troughs, and hissed its
way flaming, down to the mouth
of the bell-mould.
The 44 fool" had - done a died
worthy of a general on a fiQld of
Was ittoo late? Every moment
new iissuress opened intothedoom-
ed furnace. Some of the uDper
stones toppled oven Stfii the metal
loured into the mold: But the
waste was great from ? the gaping
flaws. The pressure was relieved
by the open venfv but the leaks
multiplied continnally. It was art
running a race with ruin.
Poor Mopus stood powerless be
fore the-; coming catastrophe. His
knees knocked together, and his
head swam. A great heap of red
hct bricks and rubbish fell nt. hU
feet. Hehad barely thought to get
out or the wavand savA h 11 to
He heard a wild shout of human
voices in the distance,' then.; an aw-
