It is only fair to say that 1 was just
an every-day bad boy, of a vpiy com

have to go far, my dear, lo find plenty
of fellows who were worse and plenty
more who were better than I. So, you
see. I was not so bad as bad rould be;
oh. dear, no! Indeed, I had a kind
heart, I am sure, and I just adorod my
little mother. I had heaps and heaps
of good intentions, and when mamma
cried and begged me not to be so wild
and mischievous, why bless me. 1 would

of remorse, amlpromisc oh. o earn

got what they deserved. Hut he had a
lot of money to take care of, and he was
awfully busy getting a lot more I'm
sure. I don't Know why, for he had
more than wc could ever spend. So it
was only once in a while that ho could
stop long enough to weep over his har
iimscarom son. When he did stop, he
used to say that there was enough origi

awful the great sea makes this world
feel. You never realize its size until
you have been going for days and days,
and days and days, and find the same
circle of water about you, with no ap
parent end in front. You feel that the
distance back to your beloved home
can never be measured. At the same
time your memory becomes very active,
and events of a year ago arc "brought
vividly before "you. You can feel
mamma's last kiss like a benediction
upon your brow; you can feel her soft
warm arm about you, just when she
held you close and begged jou. while
big tears fell on your hair, to be a good
boy, and come back very, very soon.

cars, and noise and smoke, and big
ships and steamers in the harbor, and
thousands of people who never heard

realized these things when I landed in
the big, strange city and knew there

I had ever seen or heard of. Lonesome
as I was on the ocean. I was a thousand

credit in my pocket. There was noth
ing mean a'boat my father, and he had
riven me documents which would en
able me to draw at the various banks
in Australia 25 sterling, or over $200 f
a month. But I had been thinking the
matter over. There was a very con
siderable portion of the American
eagle tacked away in my sixteen-year-old
bod, and I was too independent
for any thing. I madejip my mind
mat i wouia notusene letter or creait,
or ncceDt anr further .assistance from
my father I would cast him off. He
had chosen to turn me away from his
home, I said to myself. Never, never
again would I touch a penny of his
money. I would show him whether I
was a good for naught, as he had said.
My plan was to make a fortune in short
order. Then I would return to New
York, and as I unfolded my millions to
the astonished gaze of my stern parent,
I would snap my finger in his face and
"Keep thy wealth, sirrah! I wish
none of it!'
"It gave me great comfort to repeat
these words, and as I thought over my

me blush to think of it. Well, if I must,
"I very soon found out that Mel
bourne was full of men who had come
from distant lands to get rich quickly
in the Land of Promise. The city was
full of strangers of every sort; English
men, Irishmen. Americans, Spaniards,
Chinamen, and I don't know what all. It
was a pretty rough crowd, if the truth
must be told. They were all talking of
the cold fields and the sheep pastures,
audi soon found out that these were
considered the two royal roads to for
tune. I mingled with the rough, rest
less crowd, and my cars burned with
the stories I heard of fabulous nuggets
of gold picked up in the new El Dorado.
Men looked at my smooth, boyish face,
and my stylish clothes, with some
to see all sorts of men and boys among
them, for the gold fever is by no means
a poor man's disease, and ministers and
miners often worked side by side,
cradling for the precious mineral which
makes the world so miserable.
"One day I fell in with a smooth,
sleek man who took a great interest in
me. 1 told him all about myself and
my plans for astonishing the governor.
He said I was a brave fellow, and ad
vised mc to join his parly, which was
getting ready for the gold fields. I was
only too glad to accept. When I woke
up one morning and found that my
new friend had walked off with my
new clothes, inv gold watch, my letter
of credit, and all my money, I began to
lose faith in the gold fields. The rascal
hail left me his well-worn clothes, and,
to show that he still had a conscience,
he had placed a couple of gold sover
eigns in the vest pocket.
"So I tried sheep-raising, perforce.
Now, I don't think I care to say much
about the two y-cars I spent, three hun
dred miles from Melbourne, working
for a farmer at seven English shillings
:i week. It was not a life to brag
about. For a young man seeking his
fortune it was not a success. If you
could have seen Ernest Travers, the
son of a rich man, shelling dried peas,
and helping to wash sheep, and curry
ing horses, all for the princely sum of
a dollar and a half a week and his
board. I don't think you would have
envied the Prodigal Son a bit. 1 don't
care to tell how many quarts of tears I
shed on those pcas.or how many, many
times I vowed that if I ever got home
again I would be a good boy for ever
after. I hoarded the pennies but they

life, I threw down ray spade wlicie I

to walk three hundred miles over a
rough country? Ihope you never will.
When I reached Melbourne my clothe-,
were in tatters and my shoes were all
uppers. I was so stiff that it took me
an hour to walk half a mile, and the
big blisters on my feet often made mo
cry with pain, and I was no baby
either. I was a pretty looking specta
cle! On the road a big tramp took
away my little hoard of money, and all
I had left was a few shillings which he
had overlooked. I had intended to go
home as a steerage passenger. Now I
must work my passage.
"But this was not so easy. Sea cap
tains looked at my ragged clothes and
tangled hair, laughed, and said they
didn't want any help.
"I slept at a tramps' lodging-house
at best it was almost that. For a six
pence you bought a ticket entitling you
to a night's lodging, such as it was." I
ate stale rolls, and thought them good.
I had no money to buy better fare with.
Every day I passed the bank to which
I had had letters of introduction, but
pride kept mc from going in.
"One night I spent my last sixpence
for a lodging ticket- By some chance
that night the man who took up the
tickets passed me by. I kept the ticket
in my pocket, and wondered if I could
get another night's lodging out of it.
The next day I had nothing to cat.
Late in the afternoon I swallowed my
pride and it was all I had left to swal
low and went into the bank.
'"Have you any nnil for Ernest
Travers?' I asked.
"The clerk looked at me curiously.
" 'What Ernest Travers?' he asked.
"I mentioned my father's name and
" 'Wait a moment,' said the clerk.
He went into an inner office, and I
heard whispering voices and saw curi

glass doors. The room was whirling

"Well, that ends tho story of the
Prodigal Sou," said Earnest, drawing
a long sigh. "When I reached the
bank the next morning at ten. the first
face I saw was the big, good-natured
face of Captain Collin, the master of

GLASSES FOR DUDES.
A New York Optician Who Keep Ee
GUiki for These In-tlt-ldnals. 1
In a leading up town optician's store
a sign is hung which attracts a great '
deal of attention and excites not a little
cariosity. It is neatly painted on a
piece of white cardboard, ana reads:
"Will you let mc look at some of
those dudes' glasses?" asked a re
porter. The obfcging attendant drew out a
tray which had on it a number of dif
ferent colored glasses and placed them
before the scribe. "Wbatcolor do you
wish?" he asked, "brown? or here is a
very nice light blue that is very popu
lar." "Do people use colored eye-glasses?"
"O, yes; they arc very popular just
"Because a certain English society
man wtio has been in this city has been
wearing them, and now there is a good
demand for them."
"Is there any pretense to having
them adjusted to the sight?"
"Hardly any. It secni3 to be simply
a question of taste or preference."
"Butcalling them dudes' glasses "
"Now, you may think some persons
would be offended at the wording of
that sign, but they never appear to be.
They romc in boldly and ask fordudes'
glasses without a falter. That is why
I hung that placard up. But dudes arc
not my only customers. Agreat many
persons who would be very much
offended were the word dude applied
to them arc beginning to use these
glasses under the impression that it
gives them a much more distinguished
"Do ladies ever wear them?"
"O dear, yes. I have just sent some
to three young ladies living on Fifth
avenue. 1 don t know whether they
will wear them in public or not; but
you may often see the glass dangling
over the corsage of very many fashion
"Docs the glass injure the eye?"
"It certainly docs. In some cases, I
have noticed" by producing an in
equality of vision.""
"When will the rage stop?"
"When the dude goesoutof fashion.'

A Circu Composed of Two Hundred In
telligent Little Insects.
A flea circus, composed of about two
hundred of the most distinguished and
intelligent fleas in the entire family,
was exhibited a few years ago.
Who first discovered that the flea was
susceptible to education and kind treat
ment is unknown; but the fact remains
that on their small heads there is a
thinking-cap capable of accomplishing
great results. In the selection of fleas
for training, however, the same care
must be taken as with human beings,
as the greatest difference is found in
them. Some arc exceedingly apt
scholars, while others can never learn,
so it is that great numbers of fleas arc
experimented with before a troupe is
One of tho first lessons taught the
flea is to control its jumping powers,
for if its great leaps should be taken in
the middle of a performance, there
would be a sudden ending to the cir
cus. To insure against such a misfor
tune, the student flea is first placed in
a glass phial, and encouraged to jump
as much as possible. Every leap here
made brings the polished head of tho
flea against tho glass, hurling the in
sect back, and throwing it this way
and that, until, after a long and sorry
experience, and perhaps many head
aches, it makes up its mind never to
unfold its legs suddenly again. When
it has proved this by refusing to jump
in the open air, the'first and most im
portant lesson is complete, and it
joins the troupe, and is daily harnessed
and trained, until, finally, it is pro
nounced ready to go on the stage or in
the ring. ft F. Holder, in SI. Aicholas.

Tlie Teeiillar Ideas Knlertalned by Varlons
Paradise traditions seem to owe much
of their local popularity to a peculiar
local fitness. In a swamp village of
the upper Congo the brothers Kago
zinski last summer interviewed a wooly
presbyter, who informed them that in
the far west, beyond the grave, there
was a valley of peace, where good
spirits flit about, engaged in catching
mosquitoes and protecting the sleep of
the just. The paradise of the Boto
cudes is a land of cool streams, shaded
by forests so free from underbrush that
the blest departed can ramble for miles
without scratching their sensitive
skins. All desert-dwellers believe in a
thickly-wooded hereafter. I'he Yakoots.
of Eastern Siberia, hope to find a
laud of ready-lighted fires hung
around with bubbling kettles of
fish-oil. The natives of the lower
Carolines dream of an isle of souls so
large that a tipsy man can stumble
about all night without fear of break
ing his neck in the shore-cliffs. Our
Saxon forefathers hoped to line their
transfigured selves with beer and pork
steaks, a diet which would make aTurk
prefer the other place. The spirits of
the Scandinavian braves slaughter each
other in the halls of Thor; and that the
Greeks were at heart less truculent is
piovL'd by the sentimental pastimes of
thcirelysium. Chinese paupers, pinched
by hunger anil Buddhism, hope at least
for the advent of a golden age. when
every man's paunch shall be as convex
as a prize pumpkin. Few Moslems
would accept a pass to a paradise with
out houris. and a poor Esquimau, whom
Hev. Claas Hauscn hoped to charm
with the prospect of a heaven without
ice and sea monsters, declined the offer
on the ground that Grecnlandcrs can
