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 aud bells. ' 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 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 I u.» o Havana, not mutely a phrase of that now 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 to look 111 the windows of the big build ing from which the music issu«d. 1 could 1.4. they worn too hi«(h. I the door and poun le ion il. It was opened by a negro. I asked in 111 who had been singing in there. He grinned and said: iu words 1 cannot repeat and that gate mo a shock us severe as ai y I ever felt, that ho supposed some woman locked up iu there had regaled int. It was a jail. 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 foie in uiy life. For a long lime, ccrtaiuly,during two years, A constantly compared my list of feminine names will whatever names of woman / saw 011 every written or printed .sheet. 1 knew my list by heart; Men del, Alvaiey., Ojaro, and si 011 to the end, but 1 never reason t> believe that a»y Li am.; 1 ran across was that of one of that load of passengers among which was my swoet Hut practical churistoi.

I lost all care for my list. 1 even let*iuy pretty Intuu tunc slip from my mind. TO BE CO.NTINUKD. SAVED 15 Y SWll'T RUNNING. At Inkcrmanu, one of the most stub bornly fought battles of the Crimean war, a )ouug officer, who had learned at Kton not much from books but a good deal from its sports, was surrounded aud made prisoner. While goiug to the rear ill charge ot two stalwart liussians, he looked at their long coats and said to himself, "They can't run." Watching Ins opportunity, he knocked one soldier lioau over heels, threw the other, by a wrestler's triek, into the mud, mid took to bis heels. licfore his guaidiaus were 011 their legs and could lire, he had got over a good piece of giound. A Russian lancer made at bint; lie ran as if leading an Kton foot-race, and cleared a good-siz-'d fence. The lancer cleared it after him, aud with lance fixed press ed the fugitive hard.
