He had jusb received a particularly gratifying letter from his sister in New York calling him to tho city on a flattering errand, and as ho entered the 'o irs this pleasant; uetODer morning tne universe seemed irradiated with bis own private sense of happiness. The only drawbnek to his perfect enjoyment was Iho tact that on this train thoro was no parlour-car. It was vexatious to bo obliged to breathe tho same atmosphere with the common herd, and to submit his scented personality to the contamination of proximity to peauut eating rustics, travel- worn ? cinereous pil grims, not overmannerly ohildren, and the inevitable baby.
