About thirty years ago I was a young aw yer with nothing but my proiession and two very strong aspirations. .The first was to succeed and make a great name at the bar the other to be able to marry the lady of my love. One morning I went down to my office, which my boy had just opened, and found awaiting me there a letter which gave me the greatest pleasure. It announced, in the first place, the death of my grand uncle, who, with my grandfather, had cruelly turned my mother out of doors when she WAS a girl and in the second place it informed me that riy grand uncle, touched by my remorse had left me a legacy of five thousand dol lars. The writer of the letter, Martin Drew, who was my uncle, requested me to come to Tvndale at once ami get my money, and expressed much affection for me, and said his family were all anxious to see mc, and other things which excited my sus­ pici...

If sorrow never claimed our heart, And every wish were granted, Patience would die and hope depart— Life would be disenchanted. MY BREAKFAST. "It's perfectly useless, my dear," I said as sweetly as possible, then added mag­ nanimously for I wanted to temper justice with jmercy, "but then you are young." I did not receive the answer I considered due instead, my wife preserve! a most perfect silence and rocked slowly back and forth, one slippered member tucked out of sight, and the other swing­ ing with pretty grace, with a tantalizing lilac bow astride the toe. I tied my cravat with exacting care, and kept watch of her reflection in the glass, then after five minutes of undiluted silence, I spoke again: "There's no reason wh...

Of those who en­ joyed the privilege of being on the Cler­ mont's deck before the start, during the trip or just after the arrival at Albany, there is but one alive, and he was car­ ried in his mother's arms at the time, be­ ing only two years old. His peisonal rcmemberance of the event, or course, does not amount to much, but he has nevertheless a store of information con­ cerning the trip, not in the possession of nobody else, for as soon as he became old enongh to realize the importance of the matter he naturally sought with more assiduity than a person less directly in­ terested would exhibit fo...
