THE STORY OF LIFE.
An old farm house with meadow wide,
And sweet rich clover on each side;
A bright-eyed boy who looked from out
The door with woodbine wreathed about,
And wishes his one thought all day:
"Oh! if I could but fly away
From this dull spot the world to see,
How happy, happy, happy,
How happy I would be!"
Amid the city's constant din,
A man who around the world has been,
Is thinking, thinking all day long,
"Oh! if I could only trace once more
The field path to the farm house door,
The old green meadows could I see,
How happy, happy, happy,
How happy I would be!"

FOE THE HERALD.
The Way Jack Ridgel
Made a Start;
The Curousness of Mankind.
Many years ago, during ante
bellum times, clustered together
in the little room of a restaurant
of one of our citiee, on a certain
evening might have been seen a
half dozen or so of lively young
fellows, rollicking, sportive, frolic
some chaps. There were book
keepers, mechanics, clerks, &c.,
who had met together for the pur
pose of passing away a few listless
hours. It was at that season o:
the year when business in the
South has seemingly almost stop

their pockets were empty. Mer

ith me, however, is, how can I
anage to make as much money

othing to me unless I could get

claimed Charley Rogers, turning
p a glass of' sherry cobbler.
'Here's to the better days that
are coming," and he broke forth:
"Let the world wag as it may,
I'll be gay and happy still;
Let me drink all night and drink all day,
And the world can wag as it will."
"0, my father had a noble house,
He drove a coach and four;
But he spent it all befose he died

But come it weal, or come it woe

"Hurrah ! for Rogers," chimed
in Bill Spizer; "but all I have to
say, boys, is, poverty's no crime,
but its a confounded great bore
and I'd like to get away f-rm it."
"Yes," said Pete Havard, "whole
families would like to do the same;
but you see a chap can't reasona
bly get away from it, and t.he best
way is to look rich, walk rich and
try to make people think you are
"That's the idea, Pete," said
Pat Donan. "To be considered
rich without the trouble of bother
ing about your riches. In other
words to be a rich poor man."
"Oh! that's all humbug," said
iRidgel. "I would not give you a
nickel for the shadow without the
substance that it represented."
"I've been thinking, boys," said
-n who ha nlv been a listener
up to this time-Mike Grilkins
"that if a fellow- could get up a
credit-for instance, the credit of
being heir to some rich aunt or
uncle, or that he had inherited
some fortune coming to him from
1 away off,. and so spread it through
the newspapers as -to make a sen
sation, that he might probably
take the advantage of it and make
a fortune before it could be found
out. My word for it the fools are
not all dead yet."
"Good idea! capital! for a little
fun !" spoke up several. .
"Now, boys," said Havard.
"Lets get up a hoax. Lets get up
a story and put it in several pa
pers of character that Jack Ridge],
our dignified young architect, has
recently been informed that a
large fortune has been left him in
England, and that his counsel have
left to investigate the matter.
What say you ?"
-Being considerably excited by
the potent effects of mint juleps
and sherry cobblers, and high up
for sport, the party lost no time
in concocting a sensational letter,
of a fortune being left to Ridgel,
and sent it to several respectable
In a short time a paragraph ap
peared in a paper, of a great wind

residing in such and such a State.

like all other editors, eager for
something sensational, happening
to see it, picked it up, congratu

"Well, it matters not," replied
an interesting young lady in her
teens. "I always admired Mr.
Ridgel, and I hope it is so."
In the meantime the band of
jolly youngsters were enjoying the
boax hugely, and aiding to spread
it far and wide.
The friends of Mr. Ridgel com
plimented him on every side; but
e honestly told them there was
no truth in it; there was no foun
dation for such a report. But the
more positive he was in denying
it-the stronger they believed it.
In vain he protested.
One day who should stop in his
office but his bootmaker, to whom
he owed a small sum. No doubt,
thought Jack in a moment, he has
heard of that infernal rumor and
come to dun me.
"Good morning, Mr. Ridgel
good morning," said Roley, for
that was his name.
"Take a chair," said Ridgel. "I
suppose you have come round for
that bill of mine," while a smile
rested on his countenance.
"I beg your pardon," replied
Roley. "You don't think for one
moment that I would trouble you
for so small a sum. Not having
'een you for some time, I thought
as I was passing this way, I would
stop and congratulate you on your
good luck and request a contin
uance of your patronage."
'.'Well-really-my good sir,"
stammered Ridgel, "I am so hard
up at the present, that it woul*d be
impossible for me to patronize any
"My dear sir," responded Roley;
"I'm in no sort of a hurry for
money now. So you see you can
just call round and see my stock.
Boots, shoes, gaiters of very finest
material. At reasonable prices,
Jack said nothing, but looked
down at his feet, which reminded
him that he did need a new pair
In a short time after this he
met his tailor on the streets, who
insisted with great importunity
that he must call round and sup
ply his wardrobe.
Jack replied by saying that the
rumor flying about was all a hoax,
and that he had no money, not
enough to buy the cheapest suit.
"Never mind, never mind," said
Walker, the tailor. "Come, go
with me now and let me take
your measure for a suit."
Jack was aware of the poverty
of his wardrobe, so he concluded
to let fate take its course and
complied with the request.
One day, perhaps a month after
the runwr got afloat, a gentleman
blundered in his office appearing
to be very much agitated.
"Good morning, Mr. Ridgel."
"Good morning, sir."
Jack looked up at the man and
wondered what he could wvant.
"My dear sii," contined he, "I
h.,,, from ood authority thal
you have inherited a snug for
tune, therefore you must have
money ; and you very well know
and should know that there is no
thing like a good investment."
"Yes, sir," replied Jack, "I am
aware that if a man has money
he should invest it with an eye to
"Certainly, by all means, Mr.
Ridgel. Now, sir, my name is
James Hammond. I am hard
pressed for money. I have been
unfortunate in a cotton specula
tion and I want $10,000. I could
get it out of' the bank, but I pre
for negotiating with a private in
dividual for reasons. I own, my
dear sir, in my own title, several
houses and lots in this city. I
must have the money. I propose
now to sell you that splendid
mansion on - St., give you a
clean, good, valid title for it, if
you will advance me $10,000 with
in forty-eight hours."
"I buy your house and lot ! I
pay you down $10.000! Why,
my dear sir, you must be dream
ing. W-h-e-w ! I have not a,
stiver in my pocket," and Jack
fell back in his chair, passed his
hand across his forehead, while
big drops of sweat rolled down,
and wondered "what next ?"
"Never mind, sir, never mind,
sir," said Hammond. "Keep cool,
keep cool. That's the way men
with money talk. Why, my dear
sir, I tell you the house is worth
every cent of $20,000, and in a
year's time, with a little repair,
will bring $30,000."
Jack sat as silent as a statue,
"Say done, sir," said Hammond,
"and it's a bargain."
Before Jack had time to open
his mouth and say a word, Mr.
Hammond had cleared the track
and was off.
But a brief time had elapsed and
Jack was still sitting in his chair,
laughing heartily to himself at the
unprecedented effects of a boyish
prank, when in walked a gentle
man who seemed to be a little out
"Mr. Ridgel," said he, stiffly
bowing. "I presume you are the
"Yes,- sir, that's my name," re
plied Jack, rising. "Will you take
a chair ?"
"My name, sir, is Langley," re
sponded the visitor, seating him
self; and 'without any mnore pre
liminaries, he continued, 'TI came
to see you about a house that Mr.
Hammond, wvhom I am informed
has sold you. Now, I've been try
ing to buy this same house for a
full month back and could not suc

own fault in not coming up
promptly to Hammond's figures.
I feei very much put out about it;
but as I am to blame myself, and
really want the property, I will
give you $15,000 so as to insure
its certainty now, and be done
Jack wvas somewhat of a fatalist
and tolerably shrewd too. He saw
that matters had assumed a shape,
he had nothing to do with, and
from which it appeared he could
not escape. So he succumbed
to fate; resolving to make the
best of circumstances and put on
as good a face as he.possibly could.
"My dear sir," replied Jack, some
what slowly, "you can have the
house for $15,000. So far as I am
individually concerned any other
house will suit me as 'well. I am
not ready to go to housekeeping
"Very well, sir," replied Lang
Iy, "I accept the propositionl."
In the course of the day, Jack
saw Hammond, arranged the pa
pers, afterwards saw Langley,
transferred over his claim, received
his money and settled with Ham
mond within the forty-eight hours.
"Five thousand dollars clean as
a whistle, made by a hoax!" ex
claimed Jack aloud, as he sat in
his own room, after the matter
was all over. "Whbat strange events
in human life," thbought he ; "to
day a beggar, to-morrow a lord."
"Well, well-the world must turn upon its

Jack was not the man to be
pampered up by a freak of luck.
No, no-he was a cool, politic,
shrewd fellow, withal reticent.
Many folks, fastidiously honest,
especially when things don't come
n their wvay, could probably look
at the mote in Jack's eye, forget
ful of the beams in their own, and
blame and censure him for what
he had done. Jack was not to
blame, he had protested most
strongly against .the hoax; de
clared it a humbug ; asserted that
he had - no relatives in England ;
yet the gullible world swallowed
it and nevertheless his denials,
pushed on to him credit. Like all
mankind-say what may be said
-when one of them is shrewd
and keen, and the crank of fortune
turns in his iavor, if be is sagacious
enough to see it, he silently but

Every day brought piles of let
ters, suggesting this investmen1
and that investment. Among the
number received was one from a
large banking house, presided over
by an old friend of his father's
stating that if he would deposil
the supposed fortune in their insti
tution they would render it pro.
fitable to him. Different kinds of
stock was -presented before him.
The letter was closed by a post
script from the president, that he
had known his father and family
well and for this reason offered
him his services. -
Jack was overwhelmed and sur
prised, and in the honesty of his
heart wrote back to him imme
diately that he had not heard of
his fortune; that it was all a hoax
and that he had no money to de
In a brief time he received an
answer assuring him that they
had no misgivings as to the ex
pected fortune, and would willing
ingly take the risk of it, provided
he would transfer all his right and
title in it. They mentioned a par
ticular kind of railroad stock which
required no deposit, but a small
advance on shares at long inter
vals, and that they would take
great pleasure in placing to his
credit one thousand shares, ad
vancing the amount required, by
his acceptance of their proposi
tion. That he could sell his shares
at any time should he change his
mind without having occasion to
If he was surprised at the first
letter, he was more so at this. He
hardly knew what to write. He
concluded, however, to Write that
he acceded to the proposition,
leaving the management of affairs
to themselves- His position was
embarrassing. Long notices came
out in the papers. Friends came
in upon him congratulating him.
Ladies besieged him on every side,
at his office, in the streets, by let
ters to contribute to this and to
that. Men with loig lists of sub.
scription worried his life out of
him. Little scented notes with
invitations to parties, picnics, soi
rees, matinees, and with the com
pliments of so and so, fell around
him thick as leaves in Vallambro
To escape from his importuners
e shut up his office and took his
departure for a period.
In the course of his travels he
stopped for a day or two in the
city where was located the bank
ing house which bad requested
him to deposit the money of his
supposed fortune. He called on the
President, as the old friend of his
father, and was received in the
most gracious manner.
After a long conversation, in
which the President gave a de
tailed account of his acquaintance
with his father, it drifted, by some
means, to the rumors in circula
tion, and before Ridgel had time
to ma~ke an explanation, the Fres
ident said he regretted exceed
ingly that he had not placed t<
his credit 2,000 shares instead 0:
1,000. "There has been," said he
"a great rise in the stocks, and ]
must say, apologising for what ]
have done, that we have taker
the liberty of selling your shares.'
At this Jack was thunderstruck
e started back, but he rallied ir
"Oh ! you need not get excited,'
exclaimed the President. "I as
sure you, sir, you have been paic
"Would you have the pleasure
sir, to let me know what th4
amount is that is credited to me,'
exclaimed Jack, somewhat agita
"Certainly, sir, certainly, sir,'
said the President. "With pleas
ure," and he stepped out of Lb<
private room to the bookkeeper
and in a few moments he brough
in on a piece of paper $20,000.
Ridgel had composed himself
and was so far master of himsel
as to return his sincere thanks t<
the President for the great confi
dence they had in him, and for th4
trust and kindness they had ex
hibited in investing for him an<
making such a handsome return.
"Now, sir," said the President
"would be happy to invest fol
"Certainly, sir," replied Jack
"I have the greatest confidence iu
your house, and you may rest as
sured, my dear, sir, tbat you shal
be favored with the continuanci
of my patronage."
Jack left the house with joyou
feelings. iIe had become the mae
ter of a competency by a strang
concatenation of circumstances, ui
which he had but little band. I

erate minded man was made with
out a dollar of capital; grown U;
like a mushroom from the grounc
from a mere sportive, rollicksom'
Rumors were no w afloat at horn
of the speculations Jack had mad
'befor he left, as well as the larg
profit he had made abroad on
In the meantime his young
friends began to be somewhat jeal
ous and envious of his success.
As soon as Jack returned they
waited on him and told him they
were very sorry of the little hoax
they had perpetrated, and really
did not mean that he or any one
else should believe it.
"I cannot say what you did it
for," said Jack. "I protested
against it, but you persistently
persevered, and published it in
the papers. It was your act with
out my approval."
"Well, that is all so," responded
the spokesman of the party; "but
you knew it was a hoax and should
have treated it as such,"
"I have denied it all the time,"
said Jack ; "but I am riot respon
sible for the consequences."
"Well, we admit we were cul
pable in originating such a thing.
It was very foolish in us, Jack,"
continued the spokesman.
"I am not here to discuss-wheth
er it was foolish or not. But, be
it as it may, gentlemen, I am un
der great acknowledgments to you
for your foolishness," replied Jack.
"Well, to be plain, Jack," con
tinued the spokesman, "we have
come to tell you ; we feel it to be
our duty to correct this thing and
we intend to do so through the
papers, not attaching any blame
to you, but rather to ourselves."
"You can do, gentlemen, just as
you please," replied Jack. "It
originated with you and it may
end with you. It has done me no
In a few days afterward a no
tice appeared in the papers that
the great fortune which Mr. Ridgel
was to have inherited was all a
hoax and had been done by a par
ty of young men at a hilarious
meeting, in meresport.
"Ah 1" said this one and that
one, "I knew it was all humbug.
I was satisfied of it."
The bubble had bursted. Persons
that had noticed him previously,
now snubbed him. Jack cared
nothing for this. He was perfect
ly independent now, as indepen
dent as a wood sawyer.
Every day a dun in the shape
of a letter came through the post
office, or perhaps some young man
called in at his'office with a com
pliment to the effect that Mr. So
and-so would be very much obliged
to him for liquidation of his ac
count, as he was sorely pressed
for money. Jack did not owe
much, but had been for reasons a
trifle more extravagant than had
been his custom.
Jack settled the doubts of his
solvency by paying off every bill
"Well, well, who would have
thought," said Bill Kennedy, one
evening when the party were as
sembled together who bad perpe
trated the hoax, "that things
would have turned out as they
"Yes, to think of it !" spoke up
Charley Faber. "The idea of a
man's making a fortune out of a
simple hoax ! Such is luck, sucb
"Well, be it as it may, I am dis
posed to- think," said Havard,
"that Ridgel should divide what
he has made with us."
"Gentlemen," exclaimed Fisher,
"Ridgel is not to be blamed ; we
are to blame. The idea of his di
viding what he has honestly made,
through and by our foolishness,
would be very foolish in him ; and
more than this, he won't. Some
of you call it luck ; I tell you now
luck has nothing to do with it.
We played into the hands of Ridgel
in sport, as we thought, a hoax on
the public; the public, as they do
with everything, swallowed it ;
and Ridgel, being bantered, took
up the cards, played them well
Jack Ridgel betook himself to
the Great West, married a woman
who was not afraid to lay her
hands to the wheel and ply the
shuttle, purchased a fine farm and
turned his attention to tilling the
soil. Being a man of good com
mon sense and fine, practical bus
iness capacity, everything pros
pered and flourished around him.
To-day he is the father of seven
children, the eldest of whom is
Hundreds of people are accus

of saying, that thousands upon
thousands of persons have had
better chances to make a fortune
than the hero, Jack Ridgel-or
Girard, or Vanderbilt, or Astor,
Lorillard, Stewart or Peabody
but they have played their cards
badly and lost. In the plain lan
