"Ours is a government of thepeople,

Un.ll live to see the dny when the

vi nts have eot in motion, geographical
ivisi ns and i-ubdivisions will die-ap

nd their significance forgotten.
Poi hops one of the most encouraging
idicntioiis in Ibis regard will be tho

HE VISITED HIS OLD HOME.
"Hello, Jim! Where have Jyou been
lately?" shouted a broker the other
evening to a portly,finely-dre6sed man
in the coridor of the Fifth Avenue
Holel. The gentleman stopped, shook
hands with his friend, and replied:
'?I've beet, home to eeo my old father
for the first time in sixteen years, and
I tell you, old man, I wouldn't have
missed that visit for ray whole for?
tune."
"Kind of good to seo your boyhood
homo eh!"
"You bet Sit down. I was just
thinking about the old folks, and I
feel talkative. If you have a few mom?
ents to spare, sit down, light a cigar,
and listen to the story of a rich man
who had almost forgotten his father
and motler."
Thoy sat down, and the man told
his story: "How I came to visit my old
home happened in a curious way. Six
weeks ago I went down to Firo Island
fishing. I had a lunch put np for rae,
and you can imagino my astonishment
when I opened up the hamper to find
a package of crackers wrapped up in a
piece of the patent inside country
<*colly published at my home in Wis?
consin. I read every word of ^adver?
tisements and all. There was George
Kellogg, who was a bchoolmito of
mine, advertising hams and salt pork,
another boy was a postmaster. By
Qeorge! it mado mo homesick, and I
determined then and there to go home,
and go home I did,
"In the first place I must tell you how
I came to Now York. I had a tiff
with my faiher and left home. I fin?
ally turned up in Now York, with only
a dollar in my pocket. I got a job run?
ning a freight elevator in the very
house in which I am now a partner. My
haste to get rich drove the thought if
my parents from me, and whon I did
think of ihem the hard words that my
father last spoke to me rankled in
my bosom. Well, I wtnt home. I
tell you,John,the train seemed to creep
I was actually worse than s schoolboy
going home on a vacation. At last we
neared the town. Familiar sights met
my eyos.and upon my word they fulled
with tears. There was Bill Lyman's
red batn, just tho same; but, grest
Scotti what wore all ths other houses?
Wo rode nearly a mile before we cams
to the station, passing many houses of
which only an occasional one was fami?
liar. The town had grown to ten times
itu size when I knew it. Ths train
stoppod, and I jumped off. Not a lace
in Bight that I ki.ew, and I started
down tho platform to go home. lu the
office door stood the station agent. I
walked np and twd: 'Howdy, Mr.
Colbngr
"He starod at me and rephcde'You've
got tbe best of me, sir.'
"I told him who I was and what I
bad bet n doing in New York, and he
did not make any bonos in talking to *?
me. Said he: "It's about time you
came home. You in New YorK rich,
and your fa her scratbhing gravel lo
get a bare living.'
"I tell you, John it knocked me all
in a heap. I thought my father bsd
enough to live upon comfortably. Then
a notion si ruck me. Before going
home I telegraphed to Ohiccgo to one
of my correspondents there to send me
11,000 by first mtil. Then I went in?
to Mr. Collins' back office' got my
trunk io theie, and put on an old hand
sjo-jown suit that I used for fishing
and hunting. My plug hat that I re*
[ laced by a soft i n>, took my valise in
my bund and wont heme. Bomsho ?

Tho homo looked imaller Fomehow,
too. But I went up to the front door
and rang the bell. Mother caine to lhe
door and said: "We don't wish to buy
unythiug to-day sir.'
"It didn't take mo a minute io sur?
vey her from head to fo ;t. Nerti)
dressed, John, but a patch and a darn
here and there, her hair streaked with
gray,her faco thin drawn and wrinkled
Yet over those glasses shone thos" good
honest, benevolent eyes?. I stood star?
ing at her, and Hen she began to stare
at me. 1 saw the blood rush to her
face, and with a sob, she threw herself
upon me, &nd hysterically crying:* It's
Jimmy, it's Jimmy.
'?Then I cried too, John. I just
broke down and ciicd like a baby. She
got mo into the house, hugging and
kissing me, and then she went to
tho back door and shouted 'George!'
"Father called from tho kitchen,
"What do you want, Caroline? '
"1 hen he came in. He knew mein
a moment. Ho stuck out his hand and
grasped mino, and said sternly: 'Will,
young man, do you propose to behave
yourself now!'
"He tried to put en a brave front,
but he broke down. Thero wo three
eat like whipped school children, a 1
whimpering. Atlast supper time came
and mother went out to prepare it, I
went into tho kitchin with her,
" 'Wher6 do yon live Jimmy?'' she
asked,
?'In New York,' I replied.
" '"What aro you work'ng at now,
Timm*)?'
" 'I'm working in a dry goods store.'
" 'Then I don't suppose you livo
very high, for I hear tell of them city
clerks, don't get enough money to
keep body and soul togtther. So, I'll
just tell you, Jimmy, we've got noth?
ing but roast spareribs for supper. We
ain't got any money, Jimmy. We're
poorer nor Job's turkey."
"I told her I would bo delighted
with spareribs, and to tell the truth,
loira, I haven't eaton a meal in New
fork that tauted as good n.-: those crist
?oast spareribs did. I spe it the even
,ug playing checkers with father, whiic
nother sat by telling me a;l about their

"Tho mortgage was due inside cf a

n my mind I supposed they wouldn't,
it last nine o'clock came and father
laid : 'Jim go out to tho barn and
iee if Kit is all right. Bring in an
irmful of old shingles that are just in
lido the door aud fill up the water pail,
rhen we'll go to bed and git up early
n tho morning and go fishing.
"I didn't tay a word, but went to *]
ho barn, bedded down the boise, t
iruke up .sn armful of shingles, pump- t
>d up a pail of eater, fi leal the wood

"Father called me at 4:30 in lin 1
morning, and while he was getting a
cup of coffee I skipped ovir to ihe
lepot across lota and got my best bras*.
?od. Father took nothing but a trol
ing line and a spoon book. He rowed

mouth, whilo I htood in thc stern with
. silvor shiner rigged on. Now, John,
[ never saw a man catch fish as he did.
L'o make a long story short, ho caught
our bass and five pickerel, aud I never

?**At noon wo went ashore and father

"Then she poured out tie OoffiM mid

"Ihen she struck something that

"Then sho gaspeel for bi oath. She

She raised her eyes to heaven aud .aid

"Then she faint-el awnv. Well-i ho,
