As I looked nt her the
showman himself come and
stood by her side. Ho
looked at mo for a mo
ment, nnd then, lifting his gilt-edged
cane, poked mo with an nlr of friend
ly vulgarity in the rlbn. Then 1 re
cognized him. It wns old Jimmy Jfer-
rlon, n man with whom I had once
touted, many years before, when I
wn3 a beginner, ready to snap nt any
thing, and he was i mining a blood
curdling melodrama.
Poor old Jimmy! Ho was'n typical
Blum-man loudly dressed, very shiny
silk hat, slightly tilted, clean shaven,
bright, twinkling eyes and a nose
which illustrated its own story In col
ors. I think he had managed every
kind of entertainment In every part
of the globe plnys, circuses, lectures,
(religious, scientific and comic),
freaks, "portables" dissolving views
and performing doga. Ho had all the
Itinerant showman's bounce and swag
ger, ho was by trade something of, a
fraud, ho knew all ths usual dodges
of his business, and had one or two
favorite wrinkles of his own, and at
the bottom of his heart ho was n
good-hearted, plucky old boy, who had
made fortunes for others and ruined
"You bounder!" he roared, boister
ously. "Fancy meeting you! How are
you? What are you going to have?"
We shook hands, and I glanced
questionlngly at the young lady by his
"You know her," he r-houted; "don't
you remember the little girl you used
to give sweets to and tell hor fairy
"Why, bless my soul!" I exclaimed.
"Surely It isn't little Alaidle?"
"Are you Mr. 15er2sford?" she said,
eagerly, with a flash of recognition.
And I remember that she colored with
pleasure, and a small, firm hand'
caught mine with a womanly grip
which I have never forgotten.
She hnd been a little 3-year-old
when I was about 20, and we had been
Inseparable chums during the six
months I worked with old Jimmy.
That she should have developed Into
this radiant creature, with perfect
manners and style, in the teeth of
such a rough-and-tumble life, was lit
tle less than a miracle. But I learned'
afterward thnt old Jimmy, in spite of
Innumerable reverses of fortune, had
contrived to keep her at a first-class
boa.iing school, and some In-born
good breeding of her own had done
the lest.
Although she was always known as
Maldio Merrlon, she was not Jimmv's
daughter. Ho had married her mother,
who had once been a prominent Lon
don actress, when Maldie was an in
fant. Mis. Men-ion's professional name
was Ada Sinclair, but there appeared
to be some mystery concerning her first
husband, and beyond the fact tliht ho
was r Mr. Douglas nothing was known
of him. Mrs. Merrlon had been dead
some fifteen years, nnd old Jimmy had
been a father to his wife's little orphan
ever since.
We had a long talk. Poor old Jimmy
to use his own expression was near
ly "on his uppers." He was running a
tenth-rate trades and cycle exhibition
without sufficient capital, and the
sleepy town of Norford had not re
sponded to his call.
"I've tried all the wheezes, dear boy,"
he said, dolefully, "but It's no good.
They won't come In."
"When doci the exhibition close?" I
"At the- end of next week. We nre
not taking -10 shilling a day, including
'Bide shows, and the expenses are 30
(i week."
"What tiro you going to do?"
"I shall hang on hero until the last
possible minute," lie whispered, "and
then wo must make a bolt for It, I
can't pay up, because I haven't a fiver

able silence, nnd I noticed the lootc of
pain on Jlnldle's fni-e. It was piih.v to
see how- the poor girl detested the life,
and how old .Jimmy's vulgarity grnted
on her, nntl yet she wns too good a
Utile woman to reproach the man who,
with nil his faults, had been so good to
"Yes, laddie," said the old man,
speaking for once quite naturally,
"I've had n good many strtigales to
keep on my feet, but I've always man
aged to pay my way. It'll be the first
time I've had to bolt. I've had my day.
Wo all come to the same thing In the
show business. We got swamped at
last. I shouldn't care so much, If it
wasn't for Maldie," he said. Then,
turning to the girl with tears twink
ling in his eyes, he said: "Why don't
you leave me? You'd soon make your
way on the stage. I'm nfrald I've got
to the end of my tether."
"I shall never leave you, dad," said
Maldie quietly, "so don't talk like that.
We'll go to London together, nnd make
a fresh start."
In the meantime an Idea had struck
me. I wns staying with Sir" Andrew
Stllllngfleet at the time, whose place
was only a few miles out of Norford.
He, too. was something of nn old show
man, but nn aristocratic one, and he
and I, and a few more, were syndicat
ing a new piece, which wo were about
to send on tour. It occurred to ino that
if I could Induce him, out of good na
ture, to pay a visit to old Jimmy's ex
hibition the local aristocracy would be
certain to follow suit. Besides, I might
manage to get Maldie engaged for our
new piece. I broached the subject to
him when we wore having an after-
dinner smoke. "The man who is run
ning that exhibition In Norford Is an
old pal of mine," I said by way of in
troduction. "There's never anything worth see
ing In Norford," said Sir Andrew,
"He's in a bit of a hole," I continued.
"The townspeople won't support him.
I wish you would drive over one after
noon and look In for half an hour.
Everybody would think it good enough
to go, too, If you led the way."
"What's, the name of the man?" he
"It's Jimmy Men-ion not a bad old
sort In his way."
"Jimmy Merrlon!" ho said sharply,
anu witn a sudden interest. "I know
hltn. He was at Oxford with me. Kan
through his money nnd went to the
bad. The man was rather a bounder.
But there are many worse."
The following day, after luncheon,
the old baronet suggested we should
drive Into Norford and see the exhibi
tion. I acquiesced readily, as I knew
what it would moan to Jimmy. Be
sides, I was anxious to see Maldie
again. I believe Sir Andrew's visit had
the desired effect, and turned the tide
in Jimmy's favor, for he told me after
ward that he got out of it with a profit.
But more important things followed
that visit.
AVlien the cigars and whiskey were
going after dinner that night, to my
surprise, Sir Andrew returned to the
subject. "Nice girl that," he said,
"Who?" I inquired.
"Jimmy Men-Ion's daughter. You're
a bit smitten, are you not?" he said,
giving me a shrewd look.
"Well," I said, evasively, "I don't
know about being smitten. She is very
Deautlful, and she seems to have a
sweet disposition."
"You mean to say she's the best girl
you have ever seen In your life, and
that you are head over heels in love
with her, but don't like to own up,"
said the old man, dryly.
I wondered for a moment iif he were
joking. But curiously enough he was
quite in earnest. The old cynic was
almost as much struck by her beautv
and manners as I was myself.
"Would you like her to have a part
in the new play?" he asked.
"Yes, I should," I answered promptly.
"And why not let Jimmy be agent In
advance? We shall never get a better
man." Sir Andrew agreed, and then added
carelessly, "I can't understand a man
like Merrlon having such a daughter."
"She Is not his own daughter," I said.
"Ah! I guessed us much," ho said,
helping himself to some soda. "What
was the name of her mother?"
"Ada Sinclair," I answered. "I be
lieve she was fairly well known In her
"I remember her name," ho said, and
I noticed that as he held his tumbler
to tho siphon his hand was shaking.
Then the conversation drifted to gen
eral subjects. I remember In particu
lar that, In discussing . old English
comedy, he mentioned that, ns a young
man, ho financed a revivul of "The
Good Natural Mun," at the Queen's,
and that It hnd a very satisfactory
run. and then went on tour. But Sir
Andrew was qulto unlike himself that
evening, for ns wo were saying good
night ho suddenly returned to the sub
ject of thp Merrlons.
"Now look hero, Beresford," he said,
fixing his keen eyes on mine and his
fare was curiously gray and stern
"you are a young mun aud I am nn
old one. My llfo lies behind me, and
It's mostly a bundle of regrets, You
have u future. I want to nsk you a
straight question. Suppose this Mer
rlon girl comes on tout- with us, and
you continue to like her, what is tho
game going to bo?"
"I should marry her," I said shnrp
ly. Ho looked at me for a moment In
silence, with u queer, hnrd smile
wrinkling his old face, "Are you quite
certain of thnt?" he said.
"Absolutely certain," I roplled.
"Although she has neither position
nor money?"
"Although she has neither position
nor money," I said, warmly, for I
rather resented this questioning, I
thought he was going to make some
further remark, but all lie said was;
"Well, good nlsjht."
Six months later, on tho morning
that Mnldle and I were married, a firm
of solicitors forwnrdPd to us n, ban
ker's draft for a large amount as a
woddlns present. The note which ac
companied It merely said that they
noted under the Instructions of u client
who had been n friend of Miss Ada
Sinclair, and wished ua well. I had
my suspicions, and showed It to Sir
Andrew, He appeared to bo surprised
but only said, with n shrug of his
shoulders, "It's a good thing for some
of us that there nre plenty of fools in
the world."
A short time ago I enmo across an

Thoughts fop the
Day of flfonemenf
By J. Silvcrlilatt, Jermjn.
Willi the goiiiK down of the sun thli day the
worhl'K i.irrs and toils will he hushed, the tide
of materialism will be stayed, for at least twenty-four
hours, for this evenine; will witness the
tlnong of Jews, both orthodox and rcfoini, wend
inir their way towards the tabernacle of t!od.
Aim and women, j cuing and old, will suspend
their daily duties and join in the throng to
wards the house of (.oil. This evening Is the
commencement of the most important day of
tlie lehgiom j car. It is the Day of Atonement,
the day, to U30 the llihlical prescription, "when
Israel shall be cleansed from all Iniquities and
stand before Cod puie." Who can witness this
sureini; throiiis: an J not bo moved with admira
tion? What power and religious .strength must
there be imbedded deep in the breast of every
Tew to prompt such a gathering?
The llihlical festivals that breathe the olr of
semi-nationalism, have to some extent lost their
bold upon the modern Jew, but Uio Day of
Atonement has won or itself the central posi
tion of Hie Jewish church. What has caused
this change? Is it not to prove to tho world the
commission that Isrnel holds of whativer shade
of religious partisanship, bo as to Impress the
minds of mortals with tho purpose of Him, who
created tho world, and the duty of those whom
He has fashioned in Ills image?
Surely no other reason can be assigned for
this gieat upheaval of the Jewish calendar. The
festivals, although bearing in its train so many
important lessons to humanity, i to be ovct-
Ehadovved by this great day of Israel's atone
ment, it may be asked, as so many, both friends
and foes, have asked, what is the meaning of
tins ly or Atonement?
This day does not mean that prayer and fast
ing is all that is assigned to Israel to atone
for the past, nn. The Day of Atonement, in
the words of Isaiah, is to bo to loose the bonds
of wickedness, to undo the. heavy bunion?, and
to let tho oppressed go free. The Day of Atone
ment is to mark an era when man shall deal
tho bread to the hungry, and bring the poor
and outcasts under a roof of shelter. Yesl on
that day Israel can commune with himself, and
then and there cleanse himself from all selfish
ness and stand before God pure, ready to begin
a new year of righteousness.
It was an ancient Jewish belief that on New
Year, as celebrated the past week, that the
Omnipotent inscribes In a book man'a destiny
for the coming year, while on the Day of Atone
ment the fate of the unrepentant was sealed and
messengers of destruction were commissioned to
execute judgment. No one entertains such a
belief. The most credulous today is guided by
a purer conception of the divine government of
this world anil of man's destiny. Yet, in very
truth, this poetic rendering; is merely the divine
law of retribution.
It is for mankind to seal their fate on the
Day of Atonement. On the New Year, as the
Jew stood before Cod with resolutions for an
amended career, with hope and forgiveness to
mankind, the Jew opened unto himself a new
book of llfo and during the ten days between
tho New Year and the Day of Atonement It
behooves upon the Jew to deride for himself
whether his lite is to be a book of righteous
ness or not. Surely the Day of Atonement ran
lit for him a veritable atonement, a day of blot
ting out the past, a day when mankind ran stand
as conquerors of human selfishness, and begin
a life of usefulness to God and man.
Who can wonder that this day was made so
important in the Jewish church. Judaism, that
aimed for righteousness, must demand the purg
ing of selfishness, ami retract Into the path of
lfe, of holiness and duly. It was an ancient
Jewish custom that on the eve of tho Day of
Atonement that each man craved forgiveness
from his fellow man for any wrong done by
him in the past year, and renew friendship once
moie. What a beautiful custom It was! Would
that we in modern days could emulate them In
this maimer.
How many wrongs and grievances ga down
with us tn the end of our days tmfoiglven and
unretroctcd? llovv many noblo llvis have been
lost, Just beeauso animosity and grievances
weie allowed to perpctuitn, themselves ami leaw
bints on tho human character? How many
friends are restrained. Just because we vvlthoW
the few words from them, "I forgive thee,
This is the rau;e that prompts the Jews to
gather Into their sjnagogues and temples this
evening. Nationalistic hMluls r.ie insignificant
to them, but religion, the bilm for tho human
soul, urges Ixracl to stand before Dim, and now
unto Htm that hcucifoith a new life of viftor
and Trillions strength will flow from his veins.
Yes! on the Day ol Atonement the Jew will
seal the fato of destiny, whether lie is to con
tinue biaring the toieh of rlghtcaibness, whether
he is to make known to the world that his lite
is to bear witness that Ged is tho creator of the
universe, and to Him alone must mankind do
The Jew from this day show to tho world
at large that ho Is not a materialist, living for
himself alone, but tcr humanity In its broadest
spirit. Hut the Day of Atonement is of deeper
significance than hitlieito aignid. It bean a
mcosjTjc to the ion-Jew as will as the Jew, it
speaks to tho world that the Jew bears no
grudge against bis persecutors. Lous ujo has
the Jew fuigiven those that wronged him, and
now- that ho stands on an cual footing with his
neighbor, he invites the outside woild to join
hands with him In friendship, and one accord
to co hand In hand earning the torch of civili
zation. Judaism and Christianity have many things
iu common, both mc striving to uplift human
Ity, Why can they not forget tiie- ait unj
labor for tho vvelfaro of humanity together.
In this mai'iifr will lellglou triumph, when
mankind wlll remove all barriers and show

drm will be established on earth; then shall
mankind nave atoned for the past, and begin a
