MY PPETYY PiiiATE.
It giiovea my wife for 1110 to s:iy si.
but in tbesc dnys, buck in 187' J. i was »
cluwu in a ciicus. Uealiy, 1 wasn't
au> tiling, but 1 was in acbry.sulis state'
just us a raindrop in a dusty street can
scarcely be classified, but by a little ex
ertion may get into a flawing gutter,
tlien into a river, and so become somn
day as inucli of the Atlantic as any other
drop. 1 bad boon trying to be a musi-
ciaii,bad givca that up to be a concert
aiger, abandoned that to turn aiy talents
toward poetry and newspaper writing
mid such, until I joined a merry crowd
of Bohemians and lived as they did-
Their gatherings and the tiijuoy my fa
thet left ine. both ended together. I
had written »(me jokes for a miustel
tioupe, and when nothing else suggested
itself 1 applied fur a place in the coui
pany to black up and sing mournful dit
ties (about graves and red roses) in the
first part and do a banjo act later on.
The ti oupe came to grief out West, and
the tiest 1 can say of what followed is
(hat 1 got home to New York wi hout
walking. No sooner had I reached
liroadway than 1 went into a new busi
ness. 1 becauie a clown. The first ac
quaintance 1 met offered the opportuni
ty, saying he was going to Cuba 'vith a
clieus and there was need fpr one of
tluse useful butts whom the the ring
inhster perpetually cracks with bis whip,
and whom it is the business of everybody
in the sawdust i rena to maltreat and
deride—often with perfect juscicc, 1
used to think belore / put ou the cap
' Conic," lie was kind euough to add,
"you need have no doubt?, jou are a
natural, lnslinotivc, true-born clown.
And even if you wore not you onu imi
tate any and every clown you ever saw.
So pocket your pride, take sixty dollars
a week, learn your bongs and twenty very ,
wbitc haired aud rouud shouldered old
j.ikci, and couie aloug."
The backers and convassers were Cu
bans and lived iu the A'aragossa hotel in
Kast forth stioot while thay were fitting
out for tho voyage. I went in live there,
also, lor everything that L undertake 1
do with enthusiasm, and 1 determined to j
learn Cuban as quickly as poss'blo and j
astonish every one by singing a sang or |
e aeking some jokes ia that language
In duo liuie wo set sail on a journey 1
i.ever shall forget. Wo voyaged in a j
sailing vessel, tnrough a summer sea ,
beneath a perpetually clcudress sky. !
Wo stopped at Nassau, and showed
thero with great sucees, to float after
wards for in bluo pathways, be
tween wluto isles fringed with palms. It
is idle for me to dwell, even for this
loving instant oa that experience, and
yet it was dicaniful, so poetic, so uticily
certain Bevor to bo repeated in its sen-'
sat ions, now that 1 aui older and more
practical, that I literally tear myself
from tin' recollection. There were many
more days of it to come whou we skirted
tlu bold eastern palisaded end of Cuflu,
und then clung almost within the influ-
Guco of the breakers as the go-id 0 irk
(with tho maddeningly unpoctic unuie . f
tbo "Tlie Obijuli Jjawrenoo"), crept
past tho forest clad height-, tho white
edged buys and curves and the laughing
plantations ot the gem of tho Antilles.
The journey was interrupted by lung
'•standh" at (juantaonmo, and
at Oieufugos. It was bold of us to
vhrtt tliuse places then for t:ie great
raiinutlyn was iu progress and every
thing was unsettled, but novor dttTa rash
experiment meet with richer reward. We
piayed at Colon, in tho heart uf the i»-
l land, and then we reached Matanzas,
where our vessel was to pic* us up ly d
take us to lluvaua.
Let me say tint up to the moment we
' left the vessel 011 the other side of Cuba
I had constantly sought the companion
ship ol my cornet. I had u natural gift
for playing musical instruments, and
this beautiful ooruet was the main thing
I had saved from the wreck of my for
tunes. I'pcifl it! improvised what I
thought was a sweet, pictty air—a hymn
tune, 1 suspect it sounded like—and 1
often, In solitude, blew its soft, liquid
notes from out the bell-like throat of u.y
cornet. It WAS always iu solitude, or
very softly, that I played it, for I doom
ed it extravagantly sweet and mount to
some day tit a liytun to it, fldapt a psalm
to its n itos, or iu some way utilize it to
give me f.llllO as 1 conceitedly thought.
A as! at Cicnfugos my cornet was
stolon and J never had the heart to plav
the tune on any other instrument.
One day iu Matantu 1 was spending
spending stiuo ille hours 011 an Ameri
can ulau.of- war, whoso 'dli-el» had
formed my acquaintance. A steamer
i'roiu New Voik slipped into tho harbor
just at dusk, and cast her ai.ciior close
10 the war ship. There was the usual
j noise and bustle, and the littlu harbor
boats thai swarm like mu.- (Uitoo* around
i such a vessel and which passengers are
I put ashore, obtained toeir load" and fad
|od away iu the twilight. At one 1110-
I incut, three of llieSe little boats were
i moving almost side by side across the
i water close astern of tho vessel I was on.
1 1 coul I scarcely believe 1117 ours; I did
j not credit what tiny told -yet, there
! oould 'ue no mistake, for it was repeated
' and carried back to me in a long drawn
whisper of mcledy—uiy cornet's off
spring, my absolute and unquustioiia
ble invention, my pretty hymu tune.
1 leaped into my small bo.it and or
dered my mail to pull after tho other
vessels. Then 1 *aw that 1 could not
do more than guess at which boat tho
melody had proceeded from. I changed
my command and pulled for the sleaiu
er. Alas! twenty-five wauicn had come
on her, no one knew which were iu that
particular trio of boats and all had Span
ish names, 1 knew that for 1 copied
every one. After locking thew over to
sec if perohnboo any girl or woman 1 had
ever known was among theni, pud find
ing uone, 1 determined to koep the list
and endcaviir to discover how, in all tho
catalogue of mysterious, any one, par-
I tioulurly a Cuban lady, happened to
' know my tune. Iu leisure hours that
! followed, I sought information about
every lady on the list, and learned a lit
tle about throe or four, but nothing of
interest. 1 Vrjs introduced to one who
stopped lit tho saiue hotel with me, hut
! slio lehl 1110 she never had learned a
' tune in her life.
I night have forgott'in the matter had
| it uot have been that ono night as 1
j I juned against a pole lit the edga of the
ring, ready tor the time when I should
j oraote my first joke, a lady, ouo ut a
largo party of people passing by to their
soats, hummed a phrase of that ideulicul
tune almost literally in my car. 1
turned quickly, the lino of people pass,
od along, and tlun I called "tnadam"
"senort," culling as I ran to attract the
singer. Strangely, as it seems to me,
again I could not tell who it was among
the half doien women, following oue at.
I ter another close together, that had
ring that snatcii of my musical proper
-1 ty. 1 touched the foremost one ou tho
I arm and said, ,: src you American? 1 '
when her escort, a powerful black-uiui
-1 tied man, struck ma squarely in the
face and felled me to tho ground. 1
| cannot describe the exaitement that fol
lowed; it was almost a riot. Tito ring
-1 master niado matters worse by explain
, ing that 1 was perpetrating an American
joke. Theu be oalmcd the people by
saying that I thought 1 had recognised
a long lost sister.
Two days aftcrwaid, as 1 was hurry
i' • ins to re.vb the ship which was to take
u.» o Havana, not mutely a phrase of
that now mysteri.us tuno of mine, but
the entire air rail;! »ut upou iuy oar.
My portci was rushiug on with my
bags, a block ahead. Futhermorc my
best cl'iti tng was m one of tlio bug*,
and in my coat pockni was nearly every
cent 1 had iu tin world. It was neces
sary for mo to, keep as clone to hi.ll as
possible, for I lia I no kuow.'edgo J( his
character. Indeed, 1 was already late
for the vessel. While I passed, the
last note of uiv tune was sum'. I tried

and said: iu words 1 cannot repeat and

I was just iu tune to go aboard, ntid
we ruaolicd Havana and played in that
capital two Weeks. I made valuable
friend iu tbo city's commercial circles,
and when the show broke up and em
barked for Now Orleans I re igned and
became (lie interpreter and English
clerk in a shipping office. I remained
there several years, speculated in tobac
co and whatever else offered a chance of
profit, prospered greatly, and was haj ■
pier and more comfortable than ever be

For a long lime, ccrtaiuly,during two

At Inkcrmanu, one of the most stub
bornly fought battles of the Crimean

Kton not much from books but a good
