Ho, for that entire day we were left iii eharge  of everything.  limy kept one borne, two cow*, a pig or t wo, and a great deal of jioul-try. It "a* my work fmm the start, mine and Hmay's, to do w hat we coaid for the rattle and ponltrr, and we qnarrelnl not a little over tile work.  We altared alik*' *|H»rt as a,-ll a* work, aud were much together. Sometimes Sissy *'X< reined authority over me, claiming her light* as lawful )*)*-sensor. This her parent* woald not |H>rmit when they knew of it.  The work a-'igned hir ii* to do was to water the cowl at noon, at night pat them in their a1 ahi#, fo,*l the jnml trv, and, if they returned late, provide wood and coal and kindling  I can wee yet how Mother Jon looked when abe started. .She w dre«M*l in plain, old-faahinned garb, and hor eye* hail a peculiar, wistful expression. She cautioned na over and over uot to torn thing* toj<ay*tarry not to leave the hon*o alone, or make tires, aa none wa* needed  Mr*. Jones wa* a very ca ref’ll housekeeper. Our dinner wan lipread on the kitchen table aud neatly covered with a sjKitles* linen cloth.  After abe hail closed the kitchen door she passionately embraced both Hi*ay and I. a* if *he never expected to see uh alive again. Then abe slowly walked to the old *quare-top carnage and reluctantly climlssl into it. Father Jones looked worried a* he stepped in after her and drove slowly away. We had provion*ly planned our iqiort and were very impatient, *o we thought that they would never get started.  Next to the rani wa* a *mall field; below this field was a large apple orchard, in which wo were raising a calf. Tin* calf wa* very tame. Si**v and I had made a pet of it, and had quarreled not a little in Kclecting a name. Finally, we decided on Daiay-1 tingle, that each might have an individual claim upon the name.  I had often told Sis*y that I thought if wo could get tim chance we might ride upon Daisy-Dingle’s back    When  wo discovered flint wo were to have this Sunday tooumelvo we at once decided that till* would be a golden opinir-tunity.  We planntsl our ride with many fear*, lest it might be rainy, or iierhap* we might be ween and have our doing* re^iorted.  The weather proved to be all that we could desire.  As hood a* Mr. .Ione* drove off Sissy and I skipped up *tait*. for it hadlieen decided that Sis v must have a sidesaddle, wed she had thing* iu readiness to make one.  First, she produced two of her ►Other’* dresses, w hieh were slightly f worn; then, with a big bu *k needle aud j twine, we fashioned a saddle; the sleeves nerved for ut limp*.  Oar nearest neighing* had gone to chinch and their I iou se wa, closed, a* wa* matIv * very house in the neigh-hoi hood.  'I lie coast was clear. Doiay-Dingle I icing a pet, did uot object to the Haddie.  I {musted that Sishy ,should have the firs) ride. She lout I o trouble gi'ttiug on. but lier weight, together with fixing her feet iu the at im) pa, acaml Daisy Dingle, vrlto *turt*d ut a full gallop before WO were ready.  Si “ay, ha vine no hold. fell off, her feet entungh d in the atirmpa.  The Huddle had lieeri *ecurelv faHtemsi to the calf s hack, and Hi **y wa* dragged a considerable distance.  J wa* badly floated.  Sissy wa* stulined and semi-conscious for a time, but with the inception of a few slight scratche*. the worst in her face, she escaped uninjured.  The lower portion of the orchard wan low aud swampy; tluough this Hissv had ber n dragged.  Her die** wa* anight to behold. It being Sunday, she win permit ital to wear oue too fine for onr occupation ;  I amides tieing tora, it wa, brown am. green-stained from mud aud grana. *  After the fright, finding Si*** not badly injured, and tieing plucky, aha  urged tee t<» f*k. * ride Being a bor, lf FUf* A VT 11 Ii* XI I I thought I could manage better.

Poor Daisy Dingle did not know what to Blake of such treatment. She became wild.  Wo wen- now determined bi have a ride bot Ii together.

A* we fontal it ini{Mi>-<dh!e to do this. we became enraged ami took turns iii heating and racing tho |unr calf many times around the orchard and over Mother Jones’ drosses.  Finally Daisy Dingle lxmme ii-balistid. It wa* dinner time, and we wens hungry. So we concluded that if wo stopped to eat, perhaps by the time we came back Daisy Dingle might |n r-iiiit na to t ike a ride.  Hastening to the house, a., were hardly courageous enough to enter.  We had neglected to fa,ten door* or window*. Our appetite* got the better of U*. and we cautiously entered.

Just a* Hi**v had taken hi*r place astride the calf* hack our ticigldwr. who bad returned from church, and who had I con watching tta utM»l»*crvml, cafila along, interfered, and we were obliged to abandon oar sport.  We were mortified and worried to think we lind becit discovered, aud tho* made liable toe\j#eure aswell a* punishment We ran into th. ham to bidi’. each blaming the other for a hat had been done. Soon tiring of this, we looked about to cee what next we coaid do unobserved.  Mr. Jon# * made cider for vinegar. He kept barrel* of it in hi* barn.  'I here wore three barre]* that Si civ and I had often thought might -.till lie fit to drink, hut how to get *ome had alway* been a puzzle  We thought thi* an excellent opjmr-tunity for tasting st ,  The bung* were tight in each barrel, and we saw no pon*ible way to get them out; but mati-od of spigot* there were plugs that we thought might be easily knocked out. I gave one hard hit and tho cider, or rather vinegar, came suddenly spurting over lioth of n* iii a stream, and we were thoroughly drenched.  We had planned to drink with straw*, hut did uot even ta*te it, for we made an effort to replace the ping.  A* it finally ceased flowing we concluded that we were successful in stopping it.  We tried the second aud third barrel* with almost the same result.  Next we hnnt<*l eggs. These we took to tho kitchen, mode a coal fire, filled tho tea-kettle with eggs sud water, put it over the fire, aud closod tho stove.  While waiting for the egg* to boil we reniemliered our work. A* it was getting late we dropped everything, aud leaving the door wide open, proceeded to water cattle.  In the midst of this Mr. and -Mr*. Jones returned. They had been very anxious about un, and came back much earlier than aa* anticipated. When Mother Jones caught sight of ii* he screamed, but w hen *he.reached the kitchen door and saw at one glance the hot stove and a hungry tramp feasting upon the remain* of onr dinner, she gave oue piercing hIiilek and faiub*l away, which so scared the tramp that he Hed.

It lins been *eni that the change from wood to .’net a1 wa* not a good oue; th it *tout oak would withstand a greater Htrain than steel, and that a wooden 'e**cl on a rocky reef would live longer than a ship constructed of iron or steel.
