In airy costume, light and free, the summer girl is seen, ' Her flooring tresBes mingling with theTptay of , Nature's green,. She promenades the hotel porch, and on the sand she lies, And advertises silken hose to all admiring eyes.. With reckless Cupid at her back, she skirts the mountain top An<J;by,the latest ringsshewearsbetraysthe Upon ^ie ocean's azure breast the yachts have spread their sails, And by the brook the fisherman his scanty" luclc bewails. The tennis court is gay with life, the croqnet mallet's heard, And with iinmense ambition the mosquito now is stirred. The early morning fly i& here, the iceman with his smile, i And while he toils, the plumber a,t the seiaside spends his pile. ! The dust is flowing overhead, the sun is beating down Upon the field and meadow and the ev|rbusy town. The countless throngs are movteg with their faces toward the West, To where the wondrous World's fair is prepared to meet the test. The summer's here'! When.later on, our steps are homeward bent, | ' Why, then, 'twill be quite tiir^e enough to think of all we've spent. Stealing a Ride on a Jack and Bob lived—or live, rather, for this is a: true story—in a picturesque little cityvon the upper Mississippi. At the tinie they had this adventure 'they were both fifteen years odd; but that was their only point of fineness. ^ Bob. is short and stocky and blond, with a rosy, good-humored face. Jack is tall aftd slender, with a dark face flaalring with fun and mischief, and splendid blue eyes, with black brows and lashes that made one think of -Higgin-son's Emilia, who looked "as if .she really r ought to have & plainer set for breakfast.*vS-| "factory-;. J^ck went to high schooL Bob's father-did Odd jobs when he felt-like.it; Bob is placidly- conlmonplace; orie~side of Jack's head is ihill of machines andin-ventiohs. iand^the otiier "of imagination all eompact.". Bob worked in a harness- rthe: fiiit chance, and he boarded it eafe^i breakfast," said Jack; "and we will pay for yours .as well as our own. The gamid took them to a Caiial street restaurant, * where -they got a hearty, breakfast for ten cents aqpiece. After this, their spirits and courage rose, and tliey concluded, since they had no way to get home till the next day; they might as well take a look at the city. w sThey would really have had a glorious day but. for two things. One was, t^^t ihey suf| fered with the? cold, without overcoat^ and in the keen lake wind; the o13ier,and more serious, one, the thought of neglected duties and dfefa*essed l)earts at home. The idea, of telegr^hing never occurred to them. " Onpe they Ba# the post-oflBce, and Jack said: "I mu?t go in and write a postal to mothM|" but their? attention was called off--by some exciting street incident, they were out of sight of the post-office before they knew it, and the card, that would have saved so much suffering Written; They felt the necessity of preserving a respectable appearance, if possible, and invested five cents in needles and thread wherewith to mend a tear in Bob's coat and some rips in Jack's gloves'. J xTo .one acquainted, with boyish methods, it needs not to be explained that this mending was done with very coarse linen thread. Their street Arab piloted them to various points of interest; but they did not succeed in seeing the World's fair grounds, mistaking their way, and coming out at the stockyards instead. They allowed themselves a second meal this day, and Slept in a fifteen cent house at nighfii^^|^i|pi Not foreseeing the hard times in store for them on their homeward way, they treated themselves to hearing a phonograph, and spent two or three other tin-necessary and afterward deeply regretted -nickels * , ' Promptly at the appointed tiirie they were on hand for their promised ride, home. The friendly brakeman was there, ready to redeem his promise, but alasf there was a wreck on the track that would take several hours to clear away. .vi'jfc- "We must get home," thought the boys; ' 'our mothers must be almostfcrazy we liaven't much money left; there are: plenty of other railroads running from Chicago to our town, and we W^ill find some way to get: on to one of them." , ^ They found a departing freight train O^1 one of the other roads.

It seemed like a foretaste of home .to get to one of their own railroad lines; and, indeed, they were treated with humanity. A flagman gave them the shelter of the little building by the tracks where he kept his watch, and the heavenly comfort of a fire-r-and undoubtedly saved their lives by so doing. He also watched for a freight train they could ride on, and spoke to the conducjor when one came, so that they were permitted to ride unmolested- They, were nearly dry by this time, but they had had no food; and the two or three long hours while the slow 'freight made its way to D., were hours of agony to jTaCk, who lay doubled up and; writhing with cramps. < At last, at last,th^j reached their native town, and dragged themselves up the TCIfBB and BSPAIBEB Of SDFFIKLD, 0ONN.

They crossed the railroad bridge on a flat-car—a privilege tacitly permitted by the railroads to boys and workmen, and not specially objectionable, except that they had no permission from home. Once on the other side, a spirit of adventure woke within them, and they resolved to steal a ride to the next station in a wheat car—not anticipating any trouble in getting back in time for supper. Several railroads used the bridge and pursued nearly the same course for a few miles on the eastern side, and freight trains were plenty. But when they tried to get out of their wheat car, they found it locked. They shouted to the brakeman, but when they finally made him hear, he could not help them; the car was sealed, and could only be opened by a person in authority. -~T" ' *' Night fell, as they'kriew by the fading of the faint light that came through the cracks of the car; uneasy thoughts of "the anxiety at home, and of wonder as to. when and where they would be released, beset them. It was early in November; the weather hitherto had been mild; they had on no overcoats, and only Jack wore woolen' underclothing..: Even'this was of light quality, and his advantage was probably fully counterbalanced by Bob's more sanguine temperament and less sen-sitive nerves. : ' ; - Hungry, cold and repentant, the two boys crawled down into tlie wheat for warmth, and were soon fast asleep. They were awakened by a sudden burst of sunshine; it wa& morning, the car door was opened; they beheld with terror the suburbs of a great city around them. There was a wilderness of railroad tracks; a placard, , SEELIBBY PRISON, stared them in this face.

They watched in vain for another chance, and finally resolved to walk out to some of the suburban towns, where policemen were less numerous and railroad systems less bewildering. They walked out for twenty miles, trying vainly, at one station after another, to find a freight traiii they could board. After nightfall they succeeded in getting on one; but at ten o'clock, when they reached the thriving city of A., they found they were on the wrong road, and would reach the Mississippi one hundred and fifty miles too far to the south. Clearly, it would not do to be carried any further in that direction; and they got off. They were half-starved and the night was bitterly cold. There were no ten-cent restaurants to be found in A.; but at a five-cent lunch counter they got a meal for fifteen cents each. They asked the lunch-counter man where there was a cheap* sleeping place. He said he had a few beds himself,but they were full. However, there was a hotel next door, where, they : could get lodging for twenty-five cents. The hotel proved to be full,, and they went back to the lunch counter. The old man who kept it had already listened compassionately to their story, and now said he would make them a bed on the floor,, and would charge them nothing for it. He spread some quilts for tliem in the* little shed-room • where were already several lodgers in cots; but there was a good, fire in the room,.which was the most important thihg; and the tired boys slept blissfully. . . , IB the morning they dffered the old ma» twenty-five cents apiece for their lodging; and he took it, but gave_them Uiejir breakfast^g They found some old railroad guid^fand finally ascertained that ten miles tq the northward ran Another railrotid, which would teach the Mississippi only sixty mile# so\ith of their home. They resolved to make for the nearest station oil this rodcL Meanwhile, Jack had treasure that it .grieved him ;to see going to waste. At home he had rigged/tip: eleotriejbells'all over the house, the- most useful hell beipg.the one iriTus ownroom. which rung automatically by tiio dining - room clock every morning at 6.15, and never ceasing till he got up and, opened the, switch. Of all Jack's inventions, none was BO much appreciated by his family as this, which did without any trouble what ing the truth—they were ins Chicago. I tell you," says Jacfe; "we were scared when we found out we had waked upin:Ohicago." : The brakeman pitied their consternation. He told them to Come back the next afternoon at two, when his train started on ' its return trip, and he would take them safely home. He also found a way for them to ride up .to the passenger depot near the lake shore; for his freight train did not go beyond the suburbs. ||| . When they readied the city, they Were, . . ^ raveriously hungry and breakfast was the ^ P^vwusly cost „maay a^prplolig^ first consideration. Bob had nuta cent — Jack's normal conditio^ was one of equals impecuniosity; but, by the merest accident, he had .at the time three dollars in his pocket—money of liis own earning.

AS there seemed to be no other way, they resolved to walk the thirty miles to X.' Some young men tried to make them believe that it lay thirty miles down the river instead of up. Poor Bob believed them; but, fortunately, tired and-bewildered as he was, Jack's geographical knowledge was too positive to permit him to fall a victim to this heartless joke. They had suffered some hardships before, but this Sunday was the one really terrible day of their journey. Two mothers will never be able, as long as they live, to think of it without a throb of anguish. „ - They were thoroughly exhausted to begin with, by four days of cold, scant rest and scantier food. For the last two days they had been ravenously hungry and shivering with cold. A deep sense of. degradation had settled on their souls, as the coal-smut and the grime of smoke covered their faces and could not be washed off without the unattainable luxuries of hot water and soap.. They felt that they were trax^ps, outcasts who could expect no pity, -who had no rights at fire-sides and the dwellings of comfort. They could scarcely drag themselves along; their feet were sore; poor Bob's shoes had burst all to-pieces; they had no food for the Whole day, but their three little rolls apiiece, yet somehow that thirty miles must be covered, step by step. To complete their misery it began to rain^-an .ioy, dreary, steady rain that did not c^ase all day. Wet to the skin, they ggedly dragged themselves along, mile after mile, led On by the one hope of reaching home—dear home, where there were fire, and food and loving hearte. Ho& little ihey had appreciated it, how ipatient they had sometimes been over the light and easy tasks required of them, bufe; now tljey knew what home was worth} and two boyish hearts registered v0wjs of eheerful obedience and faithful-bacJc to those beloved homes. tray of hot toast and e, Then caine the comfort of a hot bath and clean clothing, and his own cosy bed. "Oil!" said Jack, "but it feels good.to know that I have a place to sleep tonight!" He slept nifttl noon the next day, awoke sore and stiff ; but a steam bath remedied that, and by the next day he was fit to go back to school—a very gentle and patient and faithful Jack, who had manifestly suffered not in vain.
