The expectation Wero doomed to Dis appointment for Grandfather i up Perdigo in vested his Fortune in a Copper Ziino some where in Pennsylvania and in sinking a Shaft sunk his Money. My father Koger i Vatt was a Bill broker irreverently termed by the vulgar u Noto Shaver. Personally lie was known As cent percent and Alfo Collat 1 names that had reference to the Liberal and generous manner in which to transacted his business. I never inquired into their origin. It was no matter to to. I always called him Tho old i never went to school Wim to common Herd being born to n Fortune it would not do. It was no Trio thing you know. A private Tutor prepared to for col Lego and to College i went in due time. I forget now nearly All i was taught there. I was put through latin philosophy and thing Yea and greek with All kind of otters and he Matics. I went through the hot after a fashion. Arithmetic and al Gebra were my specialities hut in geometry 1 wan brought up by the Pons As Norum. However i graduated with great Honor. The valedictory which fell to my lot to de liver we very much applauded though my father did think that $50 was too much to pay the half starred Furllow who wrote it. That wan a Little trick of mins though for i lived forty out of the Money i urn now sorry to my. After i graduated i had no difficulty in choosing a prof onion. My friends taking the Beautiful language of my valedictory in to consideration suggested the Law As the sphere in which my us Gnu would Havo the boat Chance of development. As it was a matter of Iii Diffort no to uie. I accepted the a Lioio. I read Law after the usual fashion that is to say 1 got by heart certain passage in Lilac Stone and Starkie and chatty to As to be Able to answer probable questions and in due time i was called to the bar. I Forth with hired me a Handa Omo office put on a tin sign with the words Pepp Ridge Lovatt Counselor at Law and diligently smoked a Cigar in my nicely furnished rooms for Ono hour a Day. Having thus attended to bus iness i put up a Little notice on the door " at court Call tomorrow at Tun o clock and sauntered up i Roadway. At night i wont to Tho opera or lounged at the club or led the German at Pertics and Lod it Well. 1 despise boasting of Iny own Talent but i Nav properly say that i was the Host d inner in Wir Sot. There was not u member of the bar that could equal me. Kren grind of the firm of grind and Choat Hamroll they said he was it the head of the profession but i saw him try to Sadk Onos at Saratoga and i waa quite sore that grind s abilities had Itcan overrated by his friends.

The other inc Uema Werro Ryzhuk wire was the death of my father who had been a widower for twelve Jean the other waa the failure of bullwinkle Badger and Bull Winkle. The events were disastrous especially the bullwinkle business. For my respected Parent had not Only embarked a Hundred thou in the mine speculation which bored the 3 , but his name was on the paper of the firm for nearly As much More and the a Seta of the Ink Meta after the Legal Ripen am were paid amounted to Juat no cent on the Dollar. Thus i we left without a father to sop port me no Rich Uncle to apply to altogether a Penni Leaa Lellow knowing Little of my profession and no Chance for client had i even been a profound lawyer. What to do 1 could not Tell though i Agio cd Over the matter diligently fur three Day. At last t 1 concluded to let matter go they would for i Aupp omd to Roethig would turn of i Home Day or other.

She blushed and Lobkov Omizar biased and i Felt my Foch glow. She was the first to recover and handing me the package mid my Mother directed me tog Ivolou these i Lio cd i could not speak and bucked myself out of the door running against a hat stand in the Hall and growing redder at Tho awkward Blunder. The Young lady reddened with sympathy. Not exactly know ing what i did i bowed profoundly to Tho servant who was a bowing to to the door and Sho looked a rated and amused this put the Cap Stone to the fabric of my utter discomfiture and i made my Way Down Tho Street in no pleasant Frame of mind.

What a neat Nice Little body she was kind hearted As her countenance showed her Sho must have l Een tickled at my awkwardness though. What a Booby i must Havo appeared to her to to i Felt my face Redden again and clenched my fist in my Vox Atlon a though i would commit an assault and Hattory on my own person. Two Days after or. Banks handed Ino a Check for five Hundred and eighty five dollars and three cents Tho amount of Van gelt s Noto with interest. I knew the value of Money now As my salary was quite enough fur Iny immediate necessities i deposited the sum in the Bank waiting for a Chance to invest it properly and wont on with my inn Iota. Hut i found in Wolf rom Pierit by making Oil bits of loom paper which 1 might Doug to my Little Fortune and Kiep doubling it until. In geometrical progression it became a Fortune Whereon in fancy i built Inu a Tino in Union in town and bought u o a Noble country teat und got married to i oni Hank. I oru what a Nice mine it Wax to be sure unfortunately Howem nothing turned up by which i might double my Money until one Day i added five fold to it but not through a . The complicated affair of Tull Winkle Badger and bullwinkle were at length wound up a mall dividend was Jwied to their creditors and after taking out letters of administration to my father s estate i found myself pro or of a my which Mado my five Hundred and eighty Odd Dollar nearly three thousand. Then i builder bigger air Castle than Ever with l Ora for mistress of each. And yet i rarely Siw her occasionally at the House once in Tho Street and once Tor a whole afternoon on her funner s birth Day when or. Lip o Elfland myself were invited to Dine with our principal. On that occasion i had danced with Dura and talked with her though the conversation must have been very silly on my part for 1 was in that state of ecstatic confusion that my Tongue refused to perform its Ordinary office. I we destined to a separation my Dora however. Nearly a year after i Wai taken into or. Bank s employ i we seated alone in the counting room or. Lipscomb h iving gone out to lunch when our principal came in. Or. I Pratt he said what Hart you done with Tho Money you obtained from your father estate nothing. It is in the Saringo fund drawing Ore per cent. I thought it the safest on the Tho reason i asked a because you will need it. 1 am going to displace i looked at him in some alarm and Alam mered out a reply i forget what. I Hare Adrieta from Rio that it will be a More than Sejfo speculation to and Homo Richmond flour there. It will about arrive at the right time.

You Oak Loare when lip Cumbe comes to arrange Joir outfit. I will have Jour place supplied for you until your return. To Morrow morn ing i will put Jou in full up Cimon of my my preparations were soon made. The following Day 1 dined at the Kinka. There was no one present but the family. After dinner i waa invited to spend the evening there and m or. And or Bank had a Short visit to Nikko Dora waa left to entertain me until their return. Now if there waa any thing in the world i would have Given ten yearn of my life for it Una for a tilt a Itic with Dora Hanks. Without any i Critico of mine and yet now that i had it what Rould i aay i Felt that to in Ike Lovo to her i being a comparatively poor clerk would be under the Circum stance a piece of Gnu ingratitude and a breach of Confidence. Yet what could i talk about we Aat there the elder people had departed in Embar Waed silence Dora waa evidently waiting for me to any to Yuething and that added to my embarrassment. At length Alio took Tho Guitia Tive. Your departure Ian rather sudden determination la it not or. Lovatt rather to Mia Dora i beg Pardon Mia Lanka i a Long pause a Trieu slightly of Trio tory lome ticking of an ormolu clock on Trio Mantle accompanied by a terrible thumping und a my Waistcoat. There is not Apt to in yellow fever at Rio it the ii Afton you Arrivo or. Lovatt "0 no not at the Young lady gave a Long Herroth As though relieved. Another pause on sued. Have you Iteen to Tho Jieru much this Spring or. Lovatt no miss Banks but once my duties Are so laborious to that is another Paum of great length. I a Gan to fuel confused. I Felt Tuy face Redden. I Stolo a Glanco at Tho Ludy. By Jove she was blushing to Tho very roots of her hair. Just then our Oyea met. Ton minutes after the conversation Wai quite Livoy. I thought of you sometimes Tjo quoth Tho Ludy. I recognized you the moment you Cutno into Tho i had never forgotten you and knew you on the moment quoth Tho gentleman. Now Tho More violently bodies charged with Eloe Trinity Are attracted to each other the Mora violently they Are repelled. The att action Between Dora and myself must have been Ery Strong in Tho Firat instance or at the sound of or. Banks Utah key in the door the two bodies flew hastily to the extremities of the apartment and when Tho mar chant and his wife entered the parlor Lovatt was glancing Over Somo Knickknacks on a pier table Between Trio front windows and Dora Banks was turning Over Tho pages of a music Book it the piano cur Tho outlier end of Tho room. After i hour s general conversation 1 bid Trio ladies Farewell the Vencl leaving Early next morning. They accompanied Tuo to the door and somehow or other we got mixed up und i Felt the gentle pressure of Dora r ingots in return for a Mai Kuzj that must nearly i Aro Lod her hand. It thrilled me Roku head to foot list a i walked Home i grew very miserable. I fait that i Hud not acted rightly. I had violated nil my line Jiro Mises to Iuym-11 on Tho lint trial.

What n Sweet girl lbs is All if i were Only Rich next Day i bailed. We arrived it Kin lifter h very Short passage and our Rorres indent proved to in right. The flour Caino at the very height of Tho a Market and Roft was unusually Low everything went swim kindly and just As it was concluded a perfect Fleet of vessels arrived and oof Leo advanced hut Iny Confidence about the yellow fever was misplaced. It caught in and badly at that. The ship remained a but fifty feet in the Centre in a the airfare of the water. But what truck me was the number of sea Birds upon it Mitred of Ila surface or Riding in Clouds. A boat Wmk lowered and i went with the party. We had no difficulty in effecting a Landing and while the rest were gathering egg i wandered Ore the Island. It w As a singular place singular from the number of Birda old and Young but More singular from the Peculiar situation of the Little verdure of the Island. On tha Long level patches nothing grew Bat the surer a awk peered above the surface there a scanty soil had been made and a Lew weeds or Patch Raof grass Hod taken hold. The other parts were covered with a fetid Barren Sand strewn with the Bones of Birds. 1 gathered some few bleached Birds skulls and Pat them in my pocket and a a Batter of curiosity filled Fey handkerchief with the greenish $00k & Job Rit Tatje or ill it area a up Hutu town Riporti Bohol Zeporta posters and handbills for the settee Don oru Neit morn ing. I we impatient to get Home nud hired a boat to take me to Tho Jersey Shore where i got a conveyance to Jemy City and Era sed the ferry. It was after ten o clock but i know that my news would nuke to new come and i took a Hack from Cortland st., to Banks House. On my Way i thought a Deal about Dora. Was she Well had Sho forgot urn me but no matter How that might be 1 was determined to to Cerell and not let my love lie seen. No it would not be fair treatment to her father whose kind Ness Hud Liett erod my Fortune end so i re solved to conceal my feelings.
