ARLY summer had arrived and the population of the great city had turned itself out of doors en masse. The season of grand opera had long since passed, but a reminder of its glories in the form of an aria loaded hurdy gurdy, manipulated by a vigorous, swarthy Italian, was pang-panging something from "La Sonnambula." The machine was crushing away in hard, Metallic precision and with the courage and confidence of a five thousand dollar a night prima donna. The Bum, perspiring and asleep in a loppy mass on the end of a bench in Paradise park, awoke with such a start that several of the perpetual sons of rest near by were visibly alarmed. Some of them moved away hurriedly. But the Bum's movement proved not menacing. He merely shook himself, listened a moment, glared at the hand organ in no pleasant mood and shuffled away in the direction of Chatham square. The hurdy gurdy, as if with malicious intent, moved also and right al his heels broke into something sturdy from "William Tell." The Bum now seemed roused to anger. He turned savagely and was on the point of engaging in pedal combat with the instrument when, as if to call off hostilities, it struck into "Yankee Doodle." The Bum, desisting from his intentions of maltreatment, fled for his favorite gin shop, where he sank into the farthest corner. Commingling with the heavy noises of the streets and the rattling elevated trains was "Yankee Doodle." The stirring old tune seemed bent on a new march to victory, for on it came, sometimes so indistinct that it was almost lost, but its unconquerable risibilities bringing it out every time above the city's roar, louder, stronger and nearer, until It was at the very door of the saloon, arousing and beating human emotions into activity. The Bum lifted his head and listened. The anger so recently in his countenance had disappeared. He arose; he straightened his big, gaunt self; he car-red his head high; he walked to the door of the gin shop with a firm step, passed out and down the street. And a new light shone pitifully from his deeply sunken dark eyes. On he went, traveling a little more than a mile—the mile that was destined to prove the most momentous of his life. He hesitated not until he caught a glimpse through the canyon-like street of his objective point. Then he felt a bit uncertain. Scarcely knowing what he was doing and perhaps from a long established habit of leaning against things for support, he reached out a hand and rested it for a moment against that mountain of strength, the subtreasury. New energy seemed to be imparted to him by THE BUM GLARED AT THE HAND ORGAN. the act, for he stepped boldly across By Buying « our fine mill ends.

His personal valuation was materially depreciated when he was summarily ejected not two minutes later by a functionary in servile blue and many brass buttons. "Beggars not allowed," he snarled, pointing to a framed sign hanging in the corridor. • ! But the Bum had a mission to perform, regardless of unfeeling bouncers. He went away for awhile, came back and stood gazing wearily at the debonair beings swinging in and out of the big building unrestrained, while they in turn looked contemptuously down upon him from the superior heights of j their good clothes. The Bum seemed not perturbed by their superiority. 'Indeed, he was wholly callous to it. He was occupied deeply op how he might elude the vigilant doorkeeper. 1, , "1 must get in there," he m attered. "I can't go back- without h^rlng some* thing about them and her." Theri he looked doubtful. 'Terhaps Bill wouldn't see me, after, all:" ' ^ He was startled from" his perplexities by a motor car dashing close to the curb and stopping beside; where he was slowly passing. A large, well built man sprang from against him accidentally. "Your pardon, sir," apologized the man. The words were scarcely uttered when his face went aghast. ^ "Merciful God!" he breathed. — ' The Bum, too surprised-to move and his own face ashy pale, mumbled something that sounded like "Bill!" The hearty clasp that inclosed the trembling hand of the Bum dispelled all doubts as to how "Bill" would receive him. The other hand he brought down on the Bum's shoulder with a glad thump. "Jim," almost shouted the man; "Jim, can it be possible this is you?''' And tears, manly, shameless tears, were plainly visible in the blue eyes of William Van Camp Higginson. He linked an arm affectionately withip that of the dirty, unkempt bum. '[ "Come inside," he said. There was business of importance that morning for the banking house of Higginson, Matthews & Pollock, and when • Mr. Higginson's arrival was announced partners and clerks hurried to counsel with him, but Mr. Higginson waved them off. He passed on through the long hallway straight to his private offices. He pushed the Bum in gently ahead of him, closed the door and locked it. "Jim Pierson, where in the devil have you been all these years?" then adding, In a voice not devoid of emotion, "I've —I've actually prayed that you'd come back." The Bum didn't notice the incongruity of Higglnson's language. He was struggling with his own emotions. .He was trying to venture that one question that had been uppermost In his heart since "Yankee Doodle" had sent the blood coursing through his veins and dragged him from his wretched abode into the atmosphere of better things, into the presence of representative men. Now, powerless with fear, he could not so much as mention their names—her name. lie would go. He wouldn't remain even though Higginson was most hospitable. Better tormenting uncertainty than torturing truth. He rose. • "I can't stay, Bill. You're too busy a man to be bothered with"— "Sit right down there," said Higginson, forcing the Bum back in a quiet, masterful way. Then, with a quaver of tenderness in his voice, "Jim, I know what brorght you back, and the sooner you know the better." The Bum's heart came dangerously near stopping. It was, then, as he feared. Would Billy say "married" or—or —"dead?" He wouldn't wait to hear. Again he rose for flight. Higginson placed kindly restraining hands upon him. "Beatrice Cuyler—is—not married. She's still in love with you," said Higginson, looking at the Bum steadily, Then he set his captive free, and the Bum walked to a window, where he stood looking out for a long time, but he. wiis_ubtstudying. the "-.bekutiea£ or, monstrosities of neighboring skyscrapers. He was dwelling on what seemed to him, as nearly as he could figure things out, possible impossibilities. And there was a warm, happy feeling within him, the like of which he had long since relinquished. He whistled "Yankee Doodle" softly, and Higginson wondered- as he slipped into-an adjoining room beyond the hearing of the Bum. "Bring a complete outfit of my clothes," he telephoned in a low voice; "yes, everything— hat, necktie, shoes, the whole business. What? No, nothing's happened to me. I just want them for— Well, bring them along, and right away. And, say, Thomas, don't mention this to Mrs. Higginson." The Bum turned as Higginson reentered the room. "Tell me about the others," he said. For a long time Higginson talked. Things of vital interest had transpired since that mad, wild day of the Bum's disappearance. His father bad died leaving him a small fortune if he were ever found. His mother still lived. His sister Laura, as the Bum had already surmised, had married Higginson, and it was only a year since the marriage had occurred. Higginson and Laura were living in the old home with the Bum's mother. Every known means had been employed and large sums of money spent in the search for the Bum, and year after year the family had remained in town late into the heat of the summer and had returned early in autumn, hoping against hope that he might come and there would be some one to welcome him. Beatrice Cuyler cared little for social matters these days. She was going a good deal into the poor parts of the city trying to lessen the pangs of her own sorrowing heart by helping to alleviate the woes of others. But Laura knew—and Laura hesitated not a moment to impart her knowledge to the sympathetic ears of Bill-that Beatrice Cuyler would go down to her. grave unmarried unless Jim returned. "Now, Jim Pierson," suddenly broke out Higginson—"now, I've something else to tell you. Blamed if I don't half believe you're the biggest fool ever was." "I admit it," sadly replied the Bum, wriggling uncomfortably. "Why, see here! After you lit out, some time within a year and a half, your brokers, Hopkins & Co., redeemed themselves. They made good up to 80 per cent on all accounts, yours among the rest. We've got it in trust for you right here in the bank, drawing interest. It's something like—well I don't know exactly, but on toward a hundred thousand, I should say. And to think you've been—oh, blazes! Why didn't you come home long ago?" For a moment the Bum's eyes b u l g e d . • ' "What!" he exclaimed. "Do you mean to say I've something left out of that Hopkins mess?" His face beamed with incredulous hope. Then he remembered his'present self. He raised his arms deprecatingly and shook his head.' ,* -j 1>~ "Ifs of no usfe to^me," he sighed. ."It's too late; I'm done for. You and Laura take it. There isn't enough man left in me to even so much , as. think o£ living the old life again,; let-alone iiutk-ing the effort." ; \ He looked out of the window. Then, turning abruptly, be held, out a hand. This vlsiF"has been" everything to me. Don't let them know." • "You surely don't mean that1 you came here merely for a word arid with "SHE IS STUJII IN LOVE WITH TOTT." the intention of returning to your miserable existence? Why, we've grieved for you as for one dead, and do you imagine that I'm going to let you go? Don't you care any more for us than that?"* "I must go," stubbornly insisted the Bum. "By heavens, you shall never leave this room except to come home to us!" Higginson was a man of strong nature. He was thoroughly aroused and was speaking forcefully. He could not; allow the Bum to return to his misery. Higglnson's forcefulness awoke the spirit of the man within the Bum. "Do you suppose for one moment, Bill Higginson, that I—look at me— would face my mother, your wife— and her? Never! Let me go!" Higginson broke into a torrent of implorations. Long, earnestly, he pleaded. The Bum held out tenaciously.: Then, little by little, he commenced to: give way until he found himself as' powerless to resist the strong love of the Insistent man as he had been toi stay the desire that turned his foot-, steps in the direction of Wall street. Higginson saw the Bum was weak-; ening and in desperation made his; last attack. • ' "Jim"—his voice was heart reaching in its tendferness—"you couldn't have the heart to forsake us again just when we're—when we're expecting' a little chap we've already namfcd Jim?" There was a long silence. The dogged look in the Bum's eyes slowly disappeared. They became overcast with moisture. He reached a hand to Higginson, which Higginson did not now ignore. "I'll go home with you," he said. The offices of Higginson, Matthews & Pollock we^e located in one of those modern structures that afford tenants every convenience. A luxurious bathroom was one of the attachments, and It was here that the first move was made toward the outward transformation of the Bum. Merely a bath and clean linen have materially assisted' many a bum on his way toward reformation. And Higginson's valet was a host within himself in the matter of grooming. James Harvey Pierson surveyed himself in the long mirror and for the first time in the five years of his self exile smiled happily into his own-eyes, not so much in satisfaction with his Improved appearance as with newly awakened "hope and the anticipation of going home and to those who were longing to greet him. He forgot for the moment that desolate day when, with fortune irretrievably swept away, he had voluntarily chosen complete isolation. For the moment also the bitter years that followed faded from his memory. "By jingo!" exclaimed the delighted Higginson as Pierson emerged to view. "Man alive, you look as well as anybody. All you need is a little bracing up and filling out and somebody to put new heart into you, and I guess It won't be long before your heart will be all right," he added, with a significant wink. "Now," he continued, reverting to the eternal- masculine, "let's go and have something to eat." : " ' Advice.

The first use of field music of which we have absolutely authentic information was at the battle of Bouvines, that village of French Flanders where the French won three victories, Philip Augustus defeating Otto IV. of Germany there in 1214, Philip of Valois defeating the English there in 1340, while in 1794 the French defeated the Austrians at the same place. It was at Bouvines in 1214 that trumpets sounded the signal for the victorious French charge, the first authentic instance of a command given by a trumpet call. Dr. John F.

There are traces in earlier times of enforced*'or voluntary contributions toward the relief of sufferers by fire, but it is only about the beginning of the seventeenth century that we hear of proposals being made for a more systematic provision, and it was not till after the great fire in London in 1666 that these proposals took practical shape. This seems at first to have been in the form of underwriting by individuals or by clubs, and some attempts were made to engage the corporation of London in a scheme of fire insurance, but in 1681 the first regular office for insuring against losses by fire was opened near the Royal exchange, and it was followed shortly afterward by others.
