Selected Story. THE DUTCH DYKES. Tlie Story of a Little Hero. The kingdom ot the Netherlands, or, as it is more commonly known, HoHand, owes iU existence as much to the skill and energy ol its people, as to anything else. I he surtsce of a large part of the country is several leet below the l;vel of the sea; and, hut lor the ingenuity and unceasing vigilance of the gov ernment and people, tlie ocean would soon be sweeping over that thriving country, and it would he blotted from the lace of the earth, lint by tlie aid of science and constant labor, dykes, or huge embankments, have been erected along the low, flat coast, by means oi which the yaves are kept at bay, aud the country saved from ruin. These dykes are often sixty teet in bight, especially along thc sliores ot the German Ocean on the west, and those of the Zuyder Zee on the east. The Dutch, taught by experience, are ever on the watch to take advantage of every circum stance to resist the encroachments of tue sea. Holland was originally a series ot banks of sand or mud exposed to inundation from the liliine, aud oilier rivers, as well as iroiu the sea; and thus exhibited a succession of slimy and barren sands, Hut patient industry, by raising dykes against tlie sea and rivers, has convened the waste into a smiling gaiden. These dams or dykes tonii the characteris tic and most remarkable feature of the Dutch landscape. They are sometimes planted with rows ot trees, between which run the cauals and roads ot the country. At frequent inter vals the dykes are surmounted with wind mills, the object of which is, to pump the wa ter from the enclosed land, or polder, into the canal. The most constant care is necessary to keep the dykes in repair; and a sleepless watch is maintained over them at all points. The slightest crevice or crack is at once reported, and workmen are set to repairing it. Not a moment is lost, tor every second gained by the water increases the leak until it sometimes sweeps away the dam, causing a frightful de struction to life and property. At the present day the dyke system has been brought to such a’ state of perfection that overllows are of rare occurrence save during seasons ol unusually violent and protractcu storms. Hut a hundred years ago, the low country was at the mercy ot the sea; tor the dams were vastly inferior to those ot to-day, and tlie system of drainage was but imper ieetly understood. Then overflows were both trequent and terrible. Sometimes miles ol country were laid under water,and thousands ot human beings drowned. The greatest ol all these disasters occurred nearly six hun dred years ago, when the ocean swept away nearly as mu h land as is contained in Wales, and destroyed many towns and several thou sand human beings and cattle. At the time of which we write, more than a eeuturj ago, the low country was in constant danger, auil the season ol storms was always a period ol dread and anxiety to the people. Many were the tales which were told at win ter liresides by the old toik,of dangers incurred and lucky escapes made in moments of peril from the waters, until even the little children came to tliiuk ot the sea with a leeliug ol hoi1 ror and dread, aud to regard it as their mortal enemy. Indeed, we may say that the people were in a stale of constant suspense, which may have done much to give them the patient courage which (hey have transmitted to their descendants. Mothers would clasp tlieir little ones to their breast, and wonder it they would ever grow to manhood aud womanhood, or liow long it would be before the cruel sea would rise in its wrath, and sweep them all into one common grave. Every one, there lore, watched the dykes; and the government always felt assured, that whether the agents were faith I ul or not, the vigilance of the peo ple never slept, and that auy danger would lie detected at once. in the year 1759, there lived on the shore ot the German Ocean, in tlie province of North Holland, a poor fisherman by the name ol Dirk Daiuieker. He had a lainily ol young children, the usual accompaniment ol a poor man s lot; hut he was lucky in having a wiie who made tne best ol tlieir humble condition, and spared no eflbrl to brighten and cheer her good man in his labors. The Daunekers were honest, God-learingpeople, and were respected by all the community. Vet they were very poor, and it was with difficulty that they could procure their daily store of bread aud cheese. The sea supplied them witli list; hut ot meat they had none. Dirk Dauneker's ancestors had been fisher men betore him, and some had found a last resting place in the blue waters whieli had supplied their daily wants in life. His lather hau perished in an inundation twenty years betore and he himself had narrowly escaped being drowned. It had left a vivid impres sion upon his mind, and he shuddered to think of it, though a score ol years had elapsed since then. He had six children, tour hoys aud two girls, all as pale-faced and moon-eyed as the most ardent Hollander could have de sired. They were remarkably good, sensible children—the oldest being just sixteen, and the youngest about seven—and their parents were as proud as they were tond ol them. '1 lie lourlli child, Iiaus by name, was the mother's pet. He was just Urn years old,and had a sweet,-wistlul face, such as any painter would have been eager to transter to canvas. He was a quiet, llioughtiul child, and, though warm-hearted, was undemonstrative. At the first glance you would have thought him ef feminate, but, upon a closer examination ol the features, you could not but think that the grave, tirm bps, which were strongly marked in one so young, were tiue indices of deter mination and courage of the highest order. Eittle Hans loved to listen to Hie stories which Ins lather would tell of the dangers ol a fisherman's lile; but the best ol all to those which related U> the terrible inroads of the sea upon his native land. He pondered over them gravely, aud often spoke to his pareuts of them. Sometimes his father, smiling at his wise re marks, would say: "My little Hans, when yon arc a big man like me, you will be a fisherman, and sail mv boat.” But Hans would reply, gravely: ‘•No; when I am a man i shall ask the king to let me watch the dykes, and I will keen back the sea, and save my country from suf fering any sorrow.” ?ouug as he was, Hans watched bis dykes. Every day, aud every night betore he said his prayers and went to bed, he would go out to the uyke in front of his father's hut, aud ex amine it carefully; and as soon as he was up in the morning he would repeat the search. His mother watched him, wistfully, but said nothing; yet she never ceased to fear that the sea would take him from her. The winter that brought little Hans' tenth birthday was a wild and stormy season. Such a constant aud unbroken succession of gaies had not been known in the Gei man Ocean lor a century. The king sent orders to the low countries to watch the dams with ceaseless care; and an increased force was stationed along the coast with orders to be In readiness to repair any sluice at a moment's warning. Night and day a watch was kept all along the coast. But the best watchman there was little Hans Dauneker. He went his rounds regu larly, and his eyes never passed over a square inch ot the fmbankment without ascertaining thoroughly its condition. One night, about mid-winter, a wild storm was passing along the coast. It was a fearful storm, and had been raging with unabated Violence lor three days. “It's a bad time,” said Dirk Dauneker, gloomily. ‘ If the dykes can stand this, we need iear nothing else,” „,M1nmi0-'1,er l0°kr1 ou Uttle Hans, hut he said nothing; and sat with his eyi fixed dreamily on the fire. Presently he aiose and went into the outer room. There he wrapped lnmsclt in his warm coat, and lit his lather s lantern, lie was leaving the house, when his mother, who had followed him silently laid lier hand on Ins shoulder. “Where are you going, child?” she said ’‘To look at my dyke, mother,” lie reolied “On such a night as this?” ** “I could not sleep, mother, unless I did so. I must do my little work, for home and father land.” The mother could not refuse him; so she laid her hand on liis head, and said, tenderly, “May heaven bless thee and keep thee, child"" The little Hans went out into the storm. He soon reached what he called his post; and v!Very Hi tog safe and secure. Some thing, he knew not what, urged him to go lie »i,'l ,, r," ami he kept on toward ni the dvir»B8h,!ig bls lanlt>rn along the side ol the dyke, and examining the earth will with anxious eyes. Ilf.,..,. , . ", could not turn back. Somethiiia*^ l but. ie him onward—onward. ® kept urging He had been walking on for more than an hour when he suddenly paused, and W down toward the gronnd with a cry of alarm The water was flowing in through a small opening scarce ball ail inch in diameter but as the child watched be could see that it was gradually growing larger. His first, impulse was to return home, and give the alarm; but he reflected that the Owning in the dyke would grow larger every , ti,at it would be too late to ebedTthe water' when his father arrived. Something must he done at once, and he must Jo^e put ilown his iauteru, and with his lit tle hands tned to scrape together earth enough 11 stop the leak. The cold was so in.ense, and the ground so hard, that he made littjc or no progress; aiul the terrible opening iu'the dyke grow larger every moment. Little Hans shuddered, and then paused in perplexity and distress. Then, without hesitating longer, he tote oil' his warm coat, aud rolling it up like a watl, pressed it against the crevice. The wa ter torced it away, however, and the boy found that in order to stop the current he must hold it there with all his strength. He had a brave heart, hut it sank when lie saw this; lor he knew that it would compel him to remain all night, unless assistance came to him, and he was atraid that he would freeze to death in the storm. He hoped, how ever, that liis mother would miss him and search lor him. Yet he knew that if aid did not conic soon his strength would not he equal to the taskot sustaining hislife through the night. Still he was determined to make the elici t, for he knew that if the sea broke through. Us parents and brothers and sisters would he drowned, and all the country round about destroyed. so the child seated himself on the ground, and pressed with all liis might against the opening with his thick coat. Soon he tell that the waterceased to How through. Yet it took ali his strength of will aud body, all his cour age to sustain him, tor lie was growing numb with the cold, and sutt'ering greatly. His pain increased every moment, and then it ceased, and lie felt a dreamy, pleasant languor steal over him. He seemed to hear strains of sweet music, and voices crying, “Blessed child! Rod has blessed the little HansP It was very sweet and he wondered tvhat had become of the cold and storm, hut he never lelaxed his grasp on tlie ojiening. * _ * * When the morning dawned it found Dirk Daimeker and his wile searching wearily lor their child along the dyke, for the storm was dying away, and the sun was coming out again. ••Alas!’’ sobbed the mother, ‘lie has jterish ed in the storm; aud when he lett me, I asked heaven to bless him!” The father paused, aud a great cry escaped his lips. “Look, wife r he cried. “Has not heaven blessed our hoy'! See! He lias made him the savior of our country.” Yes, there lay little Hans, liisfoim stiff and rigid, and his face pinched and pale, but with his hands pressed tightly against his coat, which was now frozen to the dyke. Even in death the child had not relaxed his grasp up on the coat; and, as he had fallen upon it in dying, liis weight had kept pressed against the opening until it froze there. Heaven hud indeed blessed him, for he had made the child the means of saving the prov ince from destruction.
