EVENING STAR. HOT ASHAMED 07 BIDICULE I shall never forget a lesson which I re ceived when quite a young lad, at an academy in B . Among my school-fellows were Hartley and Jemson. They were somewhat older than myself, and to the latter I looked up as a sort of leader in matters of opinion as . as well as of sport. He was not at heart ma j licious, but he had a foolish ambition of being i thought witty and sarcastic, and he made himself feared by a besetting babitof turning things into ridicule, so that he seemed con tinually 011 the lookout for matter of derision. Hartley was a new scholar, and little was known of him among the boys. One morning, I as we were on our way to school, he was -een driving a cow a!\jng the road toward a neigh boring field. A group of boys, among wbom was Jemson, met him as he was pacing The : opportunity was not to be lost by Jemson. '?flolloa1 he exclaimed, "what's the price of milk7 I say, Jonathan, what do yon fod der on ? What will you take for all the gold ' on her horns ' Bays, if you want to see the latest Paris style, look at those boots!" Hartley, waving his hand at us with a plea sant smile, and driving the cow to the field, took down the bars of a rail fence, saw her safelv in the enclosure, and then, putting up the bar?, came and entered school with the rest of us. After school in the afternoon be let out the cow, and drove her off, none of us knew where. And every day. for two or three weeks, he went through the same task. The boys of B Academy were nearlv all the sons of wealthy parents, and some of them, among whom was Jrmaon. were dunces enough to look down with a sort of disdain upon a scholar who had to drive a cow. The snaera an 1 jeers of Jemson were accordingly often renewed, lie once, on the plea th tt he did not like the odor of the bam refused to it next to Hartley. Occasionally he woaM iii- j quire after the cow's health, pronouncing the word 44 ke-ow" after the manner of souie of the country people. With admirable gx>d nature did Hurtley bear all these silly attempts to w und and an noy him. I do not remember that was even once betrayed into a l'?ok or word of a igry retaliation. 44 I suppose. Hartley," aid Jam son one day. 44 your daddy me-ins u> ,t c a milkman of you." 4' Why n?>t?" asked Hartley. 4'0, nothing; only don't leave much water in the cans after you rinse -'lem?that's *11/" , The boys laughed, and Hartley, not in the len?t mortified, replied. 44 Never t. ar; if ever I should rise to be a milkman. I'll give ??>0i tneasure and pood tu Ik." The d*?y after this conversa*ion there wa? a public exhibition, at which a n'imb. rof ,>tdi?* aud gentlemen from neighboring cities were present. Prites were awarded b\ the princi 1 fa 1 of our academy, and both Hartley and emeon received a creditable number, for in reject to scholarship, thete tw > were aboui equal. After the ceremony of attribution, the principal rematked that there was <?r.o lvise, Consisting of a gold medal, wuich wa? rarely awarded, not so much on aocourtof its great co-t, as because the instances were r-re wh.< h rendered its bestowal proper. The la-t b?.y who received one was youag Manner- who, three years ago. rescued the nliud girl from drowniug. The principal then said that/with the per mission of the company, he would relate a short story. 4* Not long since, some scholars were flyiug a kile in the street, just as a poor boy on horseback rude by on his way to the mill The horse took fright and threw the boy, injuring him so badly that he was carried home and con fined some weeks to hi3 bed. Of the scholars who had unintentionally caused the disaster, none followed to learn the fate of the wounded boy. There was one scholar, however, who had witnessed the accident from the distance, who not only went to make inquiries, but staid lo render services. This scholar soon learned that the wounded boy was the grandson of a poor widow, whose sole means of support consisted in selling the milk of a fine cow of which she was the owner. Alas'. what could she now do? 61 e was old and lame, and her giandson, on whom she de (tended to drive the cow to pasture, was n-.w on his back helpless. 44 Nover mind, good woman," said the scholar. "I can drive the cow !"' With blessings and thanks the old wo man accepted the offer. But his kindness did not stop here. Money wa^ wanted to get articles from the apothe cary. 44 I have money that my mother sent me to buy a pair of b<x>t3 with, but I can do without them for awhile." 44 Oh. no," said the old woman; 441 can't oousent to that; but here is a pair of cowhide boots that I bought for Henry, who can't wear them. If you would only buy these, giving us what thay eost, we would get along niccly." The scho lar bought the boots, clumsy as they were, and has worn them up to this time. Well, when it was discovered by other boy of the academy that vur scholar was in tbe habit of driving a cow, he was assaud cv< ry day with laughter and ridicule. Hi= coWhiUJ boots in particular were matter of mirth. But he kept on cheerfully and bravely, day after day, never shunning observation, and driving the widow's cow, aud wearing his thick boots, contented in the thought that he was doing tight; caring not for all the sneers and jeers that could he uttered. He never undertook to explain why he drova a cow; for he was not inclined to make a vaunt of his charitable motives, and furthermore, in his heart he hau no sympathy with the false pride that could look with ridicule on any useful employment. It was by mere accident that his course of kindness and self-denial was yesterday dis covered by his teacher. 44 And now. ladies and gentlemen, 1 appeal to you, was there not true heroism in this noy's Conduct' Nay. Master Hartley, do not slink out of sight behind the black-board ! Yju r?r - not nfraid of ridicule, you must not be afraid of praise. Come forth, come forth, Master Ed ward James Hartley, and let us see your hon est face!" As Hartley, with blushing cheek?. mr.,!c his appearance, with a round of applauoc, in whicn the wboie company joined, spoke the 5eneral approbation .of Lis conduct. The la ics stood upon benches and waved iheir handkerchiefs. The old men gath ering moisture from tue corners of their exes, and clapped their hand*. Tho-e ?lum*y b?>ot* I on Hartley's feet seemed a prouuer ornamen> than a crown would have bven on his head. I The medal was bestowed on him amid general acclamation. Let me tell a good thing of Jemson, be lor 3 I conclude. He was heartily ashamed of .lis ill natund railery. ?nd, after he was iisuii-s ud. he went, w ith tears of manly self rebuke it bis ev?. , and iendcrod lii* hnr.i lo Hartley uakir g a handsome apology for h?s past ill manners '?Think no more of it, t-.J fellow," said Hartley, with deligutfui cord.ality . " let us go ai d have a ramble in ihe wiods before web*ei.k up fcr vacation. The boyo, one ano all, fol lowed Jemson'a example; and ther wo set forth, with hutins i?'o the woods.
