There was a solid looking old man on
tho rear platform of a Forty-second
street car with me the other day as we
came tip from the West Shore ferry
landing, arvl altera bit he asked:
"Is there any p'.ace in New York
where a feller who .s ont of work hangs

freckled face, rather large month, thinks !
he s the smartest vcung man in Amer
ica?" "I can't say I do.'
"Well, I expect he's around there
somewhere, though it's two weeks since
I heard from him."
"Somewhat. He's my son Reuben.
We call him Reubo fur short. Got np
on his ear about two months ago, Reubo
did, and decided tl at he was too smart
fur ournaybnrhood. Seen jest sich fel
lers, hain't vou?"
"Reulxs's a good boy but tarnal con
ceited. Had the wrist case of swell head
you ever saw. Th night he was a big
ger man than the governor. Didn't do
no good to talk to him. He had about
twenty -five dollar put by, and he was
bent on coniin down to York to seek his
fortnne. 1 had a ciuiet talk with the old
woman, and we decideel it was best to
let him seek."
And how has be come out:"
Got through sr ekin and is waitin fur
money to git home on. Bin waitin fur
some time. 1 ki ider thouirht I'd jrive
him enough of it to effect a cure. Last
letter we got sai d he was purty nigh
froze and starved to death. I've come
down to find bin and take him home,
and I've g'M: 2m bushels of com ready
fur him to 1-egin 'mskin on. I'd better
stop at Union square fast?"
"I'll know R'-ulie forty rods off. He
ain't got no ovt-rcoat. and he'll be 11

to know him. I I stop him and sav:
