He judged from his own standpoint, and from his kuowlcdge of the disputatious young man. He forgot to take into account the influence of marriage, and of living in a community where men have to be careful in matters of contradiction. He was ignorant of many circumstances in his son’s life which made this letter of less importance to him than it was to the onely, anxious souder of it. He was sorry at its toue, and he said to his wife: “ I have been a little premature. Scotchmen have long memories for an offense as well as for a kindness. I will wait a year and write again.” But a year passed aud he did not write; two and three years, and then he began to think he could hai'dly write again nuleaa his father requestcii it He might be snspected, if he did, of mercenary motives. He had better let thing's alone. So vear after year passed away, and the silence was unbroken. In the meantime a great ehan^ had taken place in the deacon; but it bad been so gradual that his oldest ftiends rather thought their estimate of him had been wrang Uinn that his character had alterad. **Uo is hard when yon first know him, but he mellows as your friendship grows,” said McLaurin, who had been a familiar friend for forty years. But it was something mora than the mellowing of time. As drops of water will wear away granite, so the preaching of Dominic Frazer had told upon tho deacon’s spiritual natura. Thera had indeed been times when ho had seriously disapproved him, when he had even tearod he was listening to something veiw like Aniiinianism, but through it all very lew Sabbaths when the words of Jesus had not found his soul, even in its most secret places. In the ninth year of his son’s absence he began to ronieniber him very tenderly and to find exeuscs for him. “He was very young, and he had my aiii high temper and quick tongue. 1 keu weell hue a guiqiowdery temper, and the laddie was like a flash o’ fire; in the vera nature o’ things mischief would come. 1 wish I kcnt where he is at a’. Purba])S I ought I mean, perhaps it would be kind like to look after him. I wouldna like to meet his mother in another warld if I had failed in mercy to the lad. Whatever way can I make it up wi’ him.” It was in a mood of this kind ho wAnt. tá\ r.hiii'frli one moriiúuf- 11 in Uioughts wanderad a great <1^1 until they fitted into the words which the dominie was raading—the words in which the wise woman of Tckoah urged David to bring back his banished sun Absalom. He jiointed out the ira|)orfectiou of David’s forgiveness, in that, though ho brought him back, he suffered him not to see his flice. Then he turned to the father of tho newer dispensation, limned in Cliristlike colors, running to meet his prpdigal when afar off, taking him to nis breast with kisses of forgiveness, calling together his friends to rajoice with him over the sou that was lost aud fouud. Wheu the deacon left the church it was with one fixed purpose—to go and find his son. “And you’ll do right, deacon,” said the dominie. “You are hale and vigorous, and neediia fear the travel. You hae pleuty o’ siller to go to tho lad; maybe he hasiia a bawbee to come to you. He mav hae fallen very low— hae you thought of that?” “Ay, have I. If 1 can find him, however low ho*-Las fallen. I’ll lift him np and gie him a sou’s portion in a’ things.” “If that ia the spirit you are in go yonr ways, deacon, and the Lord go with you. W'here to first ?” “He wrote me a letter frae a town on the Gulf o’ Mexico in Texas; but I hae written tw'ice to that plucc and sot no answer back, for 1 bid him leave it on pain o’ my displeasure, and he’ll hao ganc, but whichever way is niair than I can tell.” In a month the deacon was in Kow Orleans, and from tliera he went to Corpus Christ!; but since Alexander McNab had lived there it had been visited by an epidemic of yellow fever, and the population had been a constantly shifting one. No one remembered him. “I’ll go up to the seat of government,” he said to himself; “where thera is law-making thera’ll bo lawyers. Maybe I’ll find Uie lad among them.” So ho bought a horse and bnggy aud went leisuraly through the country. It was in the first week in June, and he was lost in amazement and delight. There was a pomp and glory in the sunshine and flowers which he never dreamed of; aud as ho rode through miles of blowing grasses and naw the countless herds of cattle aud felt all the lonely beautv and peace sank into his soui, he said rapturous-Iv, “Here one kens that the earth is the Lbrd’s.” The highly oxygenized atmosphere ctto him a feeling of exhilaration ; he found himself singing lines of hia favorite hymns or snatches of such autiiorizcd songs aa “Aulu Lang Syne,” or “Scots who hao wi’ Wallace’bled.” But tho strange han Si ness in hia heart he put entirely own to the credit of his conscience. “It’s a gran’ thing,” he thought ‘To I din be ou an enand o’ mercy. wonder now there are sae many philanthropists.” However, on tlie fourth day he left the open prairies and got into the pine woods. The heat incraased, unknown insects troubled him, he saw huge snakes gliding away into the nndcr-bnish, there were strange sounds all around, and a sense of awful solemnity came over him. He was alone with God in the thick woods, and he feared Him as he had never done before. All day long the prayer of contrition and adoration was on his lips. Toward the gloaming he was ae-iighted to reach the prairie again aud to meet two travelers. “Good nijrht, stranger.” “Gudo night to baith o’ you. Ken yon whar I can get a bite and a sup knd a night’s lodging ?” “Yes, sir—straight ahead. You’ll come to the jedge’s in half an hour. They are right smart folks, and you’d best liglit thera for to-night, I reckon.” “Thank you, gentlemen. Gude night.” He rode on very anxiously. The snn was sinking fast, and an inexpressible solltnde was aronnd him. One lonely, silent bird flying hastily to its covert gave a still eerier tecling to the hour and scene. Suddenly he heard the joyt’jl laughter of children at play. He quickened his pace,' ronndt^ a clump of trees, and tti3ii saw a white house spiuading itself beneath them. Some children, black and white, came running to the little gate to meet him. “Well, bairns, is the Judge at liome ?” “No DTIt m» 4-,” -aaidjL JiUI^ lad about six years old. “Goki Tire house, sir; Jim and I will take your buggy.” He let them take it very gladly, and went to the house. A pretty little woman met him on tho piazza. She iieodcil no explanations. He was a stranger wanting food aud shelter, aud she gave them with a charming courtesy that at once put tho Deacon at ease. “I am sorry my husband is away,” she said, with pardonable wifely pride, “but he is a nicraber .of the Legislature, and it is now in session.”. Then the children came back, and the deacon took to them wonderfully. Children were a new form of humanity to him; he knew nothing about th'un. But there was an independence aud good fcHowsiiip about the little lail, as he told him all about his animals ami his adventures, that quite delighted the old man. After a little they went to bed in tlie next room, and he heard them saying their prayers to tkeir mother. “Go«l bless grandnapal” How the WUrilB siuvtt^ liliUf lio • vous and restless that when tho baby lisiHHl out the same petition he could no longer sit still. Ue walked to the window, where there was a tabic and a lamp and some newspajiers. Then he uoticctf a large bible, and he drew it toward liiiii. Almost unconsciously he turned to the family register. “Alexander McNab,’ born in Glasgow, Marah 29.18—,” was the first name he saw. lie made no outcry; he never moved. His eyes were riveted upon the words and unoii tliose that followed: ‘*Mary Baylor, born in Galveston, Janet McNab, David McNab, Mary McNab, Margaret 31uNab, Peter McNab.” On the opposite page the “death of Janet McNab, aged ten months.” He had objected to her bearing her grandmother’s uaino, and she was in Heaven with her. Ho oiiened the door softly and went out on the piazxa. God had led him to his sou’s house, and ho had eaten at his sou’s table and had not known it. Hia emotions were iuoommunicable, even to the heavenly Father. He sat as still in his joy as he had often done ill his grief aud oiiened not his mouth, because he was so sure that God had done it. After a little Alexander’s wife came and sat down beside him, and he encouraged her to talk of her husband and his prospects. She, at least, no-licvcd in him aubliuicly. He was the beat and greatest man in Texas—she had not a doubt about it Peter could have smiled if he had not been so full ot thought Finally he askoil her if her husband was born in Texas.. “Oh, no!” she answered, IVaiiklv, “he was born in Glasgow, a town In Scotland. 1 8up|K)9e you know tho city, for you talk like a Scotchman.” “I hao many friends and business connections there, ma'am.” She hesitated a few moments and then asked : “Did you ever know or hear tell of Mr. Potor McNab ? He is a lawyer.” “I may say I ken him vera weel. I dinna think much o’ him either, ma’am. He’s a hard auld man.” “He is my hiishaiid’s father, so you must not say so hero. His son thinks very higlily of him, and perhaps you may ho inistakcn. In business men, even kind men, are often obliged to be hard.” Then she turned the conversation, and tho deacon was glad of it He did not sloop much, and the next morning was on the road to Austin at daybreak, lie reached there in the afternoon, and went to Smith’s Hotel. A tew words ot inquiry satisfied him. The Judge was staying there—ho would bo in from the Capitol about 5 o’clock. If the gentleman had any private business there was no use going there. The Judge was Chairman of a committ«*e, aud not apt to be on nna I the fioor iu the daytime. But Peter could not sit still. He refreshed hinaself, and tlien turned his face to the great white building standing so loftily at the head of the beautiful avenue. He soon entered its halls and gazed ujion such a body of lawmakcra as he had never dreamed of seeing, and be was wonderfully impressed both by the men and the methods. Bat he did not find his son, and after an hour’s stay he determined to go back to the hotel and wait thcVc Ibr him. As he entered it the landlord said: “The Judge is in iiis room, stranger; second door on your right hand.” He walked straight to it ami opened it. Alexander, who was asleep upon a sofa, turned his head, gazed one moment, and then leaped to his feet “Father I Mv dear, dear father 1” “Ay, ay, ray lad. I’m here." A bon-nic-like jonrney thou bast brought me, an anld man like me, too. O, Alexander I” And then the old parable whieh liMl sent tho father to seek his son was renewed in all its sweetness and tenderness, and that night tire deacon wont np to tlie Capitol leading on his son’s arm, and he was protid and happy beyond expression. ^ “You made a vera flilr speech, Alexander’’ he said as they retnrired home. It would hae been better if there had been fewer steps between your premise and your peroration, but you’ll do in time and wi’ mair practice. Ydinua much wonder your wife sets such store by you.” ‘^My wife I Have you seen Marv ?’’ “Ay, I stayed at yonv house last night. She’s no as bonnie as some women, but she’s loving and ladylike, an^ -«bat'g niair, she’s a prudent body, and can Dam.    imi    i lier tongue. So she’s no an ordiiiar’ woman at a’. And the bairns arc just the most interesting bairns I ever saw. Baith o’ the lads are a bit like me, and I would ua wonder if I’ll hae a’ the comfort out o’ little Davie 1 should hae had out o’ liis father.” Thcu Alexander smiled and pressed his father’s arm closer to bis side, for little Davie had taught him some lessons ho would have learned iu no other way. In thi*ee months the deacon was back again on the the Glasgow pavements, as brisk aud active and as full of life and business as lie had been ten vears beiora. lie went into his affairs w'ith an exactness and promptitude that rather astunisiicd tho men in whose charge tliey had been left. “You are very strict about a bawbee, Deacon,” said one ot them. “Justsac, Mr. McIntyre; but my son. Judge McNab, is conving home to take tlic busiiiesss, and no man to put up wi’ a baubee ecii yon tnai." He had always been very reticent about his son’s lou;^ absoiicc. There were none of his friends that felt at liberty to ask any questions or to make any remarks to him about his return except Bailie Scott, who was, perhaps just a little nettled at Peter’s air of satisfactiuiL “Sao vou hae found your prodigal at last, beacon,” ho ventured to say one afternoon, as they met in front of the court house. “Nae vera liaixl matter that. Bailie Scott. When a man is’a Judge o’ a District Court and a merabor o’ the Legislature and has married an cx-Goveruor's daughter, he’s no ill to find. Gudo day to yon. Bailie,” and he walked away with tlie air of one who felt that he had settled a question thoroughly. To Dominie Frazer, however, he opened his heart with all the humility of a truly grateful man. “Go<i has been better to baith o’ us than we deserve, dominie. But wo lure seen our faults and said sae, and tho future is to be for the nicuding o’ them. There is uae either thing for flesh and blood to do.” “You are building him a fine house, I hear.” ‘•Ay; when I hae coaxed the lad awa’ from his ain hamo it’s but a just tiiiua to build him anotiier. lie’ll get here by the time it is ready for him. Then i 11 hae iiiy son aud a bonnie bit daugliter-iii-Iaw aud the four braw bairns. 1 never hoped for eae much love and joy again, never.

IPhiladelphia Bulletin.] “Speaking about stealing,” said a communicative cigar [dealer to a gentleman who stepped inside his store to avoid a crowd that was following a policeman who was escorting a decrepit looking thief to the station house, “if those people”—pointing to tho captive—“were the only ones shopkeepers had to contend with, there would, comparatively s^ieaking, be but little trouble. You can nearly always tell them at sight, bat the well-dressed rogue is the bothering one. Now take .a little thing like a cigar. You wouldn’t imagine any one would steal a single cigar, would you? But tliey do. I can understand what would prompt a man to steal a box of cigars, but when it oomcs down to a ringle weed it’s small burinese. ‘•It is done, though.” he aontiiined, “fteqnently. In the long ran the loss amounts to something coneidei-able, bnt you can imagine what ridicule a man wonld have to stand were he to prefer a cliarge aj^iusteach man who pockets a ci^r without paying for it, Tliese well dressed people would be virtuonsly indignant, shocked and plead innocence of any harm. ‘Such a matter of habii,’ ilicy would say, ‘to put a cigar in my jiocket, that 1 sap-pose I did it unconsciously.’ Of course they wonld always come ont alivna I» n    onill’L    IhO pettiness of the charge alone weighing in their favor. Another remedy is to kick these offendere out of the shop, and then a suit for assault and bat-tei^y would foIlotY, in which the respectable thief would always come out first liest. “Tlie easiest remedy,” he continned slowly, as he rearranged some packages of cigarettes that a customer had pushed over while reaching for his change, “is to keep a close watch on all customers, no matter how respectable they may appear, and then it they take anything they don’t pay for, cuilar them on the s;>ot. Speak to them kindly but firmly, and they will generally come to time. “Kleptomaniacs are altogether too numerous. Sometimos 1 think the disease is altogether overdone, aud I wonder why none but woaltiiy aud respectable people are aflücted with Other a Inients are, as a rule, no respecter of persons, but this is an ex-•bprion. I liave an idea of my own that with many rich or ‘well-on’’ i>eo-ple, kleptomania is a handy excuse kept for use, when they are detected in acts prompted by their stinginess. Anyliow 1 have lots of regular customers, perhaps I should not say ‘lots,’ but I have a great many, who hare no more compunctions about putting a cigar in their pockets without paying for it, than they have about smoking it after they get out ot sight. The way it is done is this: A man comes In, asks for three-for-a-quartcr, two-for-aH|uarter, or soine-tliing chea])cr, as the case may be. Then ho wants another brand, and 1 turn around to get it, and he slips a cigar up bis coat sleeve, lowers his arm to the side {^kct of his coat, and the weed drops into his pocket. Tliis is very cute, and I have no doubt it works nine times out of teu. Another mau will quietly take the cigars and put them iu his vest pocket while my back is turned. These jieople always make a purchase and got out. If I have detected their roguery, I mention to them in a quiet way the next time they conic iu that they forgot to pay for so many cigars when Uicy were last in my place, and thev pay up. without a inurmer. It don t do to W rash, you know. Boys need nrelty close watching, but I can excuse a boy for being a little wrong at times. There is always a chance tor them to learn better as they grow older in the ways of tho world. But I do detest to see a man, who is contiii ually iiokiiig around picking up little tilings that don’t belong to him. It is conteiiiptibie, but what can a fellow do And tho cigar seller picked ont ciioap cigar and smothered liis wrath in sniuku. Fam«)us Bui U|(ly Women. ri.ou<lon Truth.] Three frightfully ugly women in our time took Paris by storm. They were the Princess Metternieli, Tliere-9S, and the Princess Lise Troubcts-kol, whose gcni'o was canaille sans I’eire. 8ho was iiglier young than when she had been sumo time a grand mot her, and, though chaste as snow, was capable of having invented the Onlcr of the Garter. .Her face was frankly Kalmuck, and in size she was a mere hop-o’-my-thnmb. It was ncc»‘s‘,Hry for her to strike while the iron ws** hot. The first Impression she produced was agreeable, or, as her Freiuh admirers said, cuplteux; but it wore off soon, and the after-inipression was different. She was too ro8llo8s,and apparently too anxious, to iilay a noisy and empty pai1, to please long. Tho Princess Metternieli had Hungarian originality, and was less vain than fond of pfcnsuro. Theresa was a genius. 8he wont uii iniprovi-ng as she gained experience of the world.

DOLPHIN MEAT. Uaes »o Which It is Put—A Proflui-ble luduHtry. fCor. PhilMlelphm ProM.1 Cap* May, October 24.—After a number of weeks of enforced idleness the Porpoise Fishing Company is once more in active operation, with indications of a successful career before it. The organization was formed for the purpose of “netting” porpoises and making oil from the blubber. The new venture partook ot the nature of an experiment and was . not very suceessftil, as the cost of capturing the fish and putting the oil iu the market proved as great as the receipts. Creditors be^n to harass the concern, and, to erowii all its misfortunes, the company’s little steamer, used to transuort t)^ erews to the fishing frounas, was east npon the beach during a heavy gale. Uecent developments and discoveries have dissolved tlie troubles which beg St the new enterprise. Washington Butcher’s Sons, cf PhUa-dclphia, have been experiuieutiug with the meat of the porpoise and iiave made an important discovery calculated to make porpoise fishing a lucrative and leading industry along me snurtr. Porjioisc flesh is red, and juicy like good beef only that it Is tenderer, mure solkf and of finer grain. It is pleasant and savory to the taste, ai-tliough not coiniuonly eaten along the shore. The firm above named have discovered that wheu properly cured the meat tastes almost exactly like dried beef. Tho Press correspondent sampled the smoked porpoise meat to-day. It was a little redder than dried beef, cut easily and was delicious to the taste—much richer and pleasanter than oi^dinary dried beef. Several firms stand ready to bay all the porpoise flesh the company can supply, and they expect no difficulty iu fintl-ing oouauniers. It will be known to the trade as “dolphin meat.” It has the advantage of iiaring no bones or fat ill it, and there will be no waste in cutting. The process by which poriKiise flesh is made into “dolphin muat” ia «imply by an^oking U like beef. The average weight of a porpoise is about 350 {louuds. Its body is covered, just beueatli the skin, with a layer of fat two inches or more thick, w hilo beneath it is a mass of solid, red meat. The fishing company has hauled its steamer oif the beacti, and now ex;>ects to catch fifteen or twenty poi'iHiises every day until cold weather drives them into Southern waters. Porpoise meat will be sold mncli cheu;)er than dried beef, aud this, combined with its relative exeelleuee, will no doubt make it a lavorite dish with everybody.
