*This Book is annotated (it contains a detailed biography of the author). *An active Table of Contents has been added by the publisher for a better customer experience. *This book has been checked and corrected for spelling errors. The majority of stories for boys have their background laid either in the city or the country, or possibly on the ocean, and we have read much about the doings of lads both rich and poor in such locations. In the present tale we have a youth of sturdy qualities who elects to follow the calling of a deckhand on a Hudson River steamboat, doing his duty faithfully day by day, and trying to help others as well as himself. Like all other boys he is at times tempted to do wrong, but he has a heart of gold even though it is hidden by a somewhat ragged outer garment, and in the end proves the truth of that old saying that it pays to be honest,—not only in regard to others but also regarding one's self. Life on a river steamboat is not so romantic as some young people may imagine. There is hard work and plenty of it, and the remuneration is not of the best. But Randy Thompson wanted work and took what was offered. His success in the end was well deserved, and perhaps the lesson his doings teach will not be lost upon those who peruse these pages. It is better to do what one finds to do than to fold your hands and remain idle, and the idle boy is sure, sooner or later, to get into serious mischief.

Do you want to go along With pleasure, Jack, answered Randy Thompson, a bright, manly youth of fourteen. Are you going on foot or in your boat I think we might as well take the boat, returned Jack Bartlett, a boy who was but a few months older than Randy. Have you your lines handy No, but I can get them in less than ten minutes. All right. Meet me at the dock in quarter of an hour. I was thinking of going up the river to Landys Hole. Thats a good spot, isnt it I think so. Last season I was up there and caught fourteen good-sized fish. They tell me you are one of the best fishermen in Riverport, Randy, went on Jack Bartlett, admiringly. What is the secret of your success I dont know unless it is patience, answered Randy, with a broad smile. To catch fish you must be patient. Now when I caught my mess of fourteen two other boys were up to the Hole. But just because the fish did not bite right away they moved away, further up the river. But by doing that they got only about half as many as myself. Well, I am willing to be patient if I know I am going to catch something. At this Randy laughed outright. You cant be sure of anythingin fishing. But I always reckon its a good thing to hold on and give a thing a fair trial. I reckon youre right, Randy, and Ill give the fishing a fair trial to-day, answered Jack Bartlett. Remember, the dock in quarter of an hour, he added, as he moved away.
