Probably Jack Hegarty was never more surprised than when he received a gilt-edged, copper-plate written invitation card fori Mrs. De Stimson's party at East Melbourne. His first thought was of delight; but-on con sidering the matter a little, heremeinbered' that a great ob-tacle was in the way of his acceptance. He had no clothes. I do not mean that he was attired in the costume generally believed.to haxebeen initiated. by. Adam, but that his entire wardrobe cohsisted of .two or three pairs of seedy inexpresiibles, three vests, and an alleged coat. I believe there weYre??other garments, afid pFh'ap~is*'to pairs of boots, but I;do not feel called. upon Sto enter into such close particulars. Suffice it to:say, that with all his ingenuity he could not accomplish a dress-suit. However, after holding a .council of -ways and means with himself, he resolved to go ?over .iis ,list of tailors, and endeavor to persuade the one with whom hlie was the .lea...
