He flicked the horse with his whip, and we dashed away through the endless succession of somber and deserted streets, which widened gradually until we were flying across a broad ballast rated bridge, with a murky river flowing sluggishly. Behind us. Beyond lay another dull wilderness of bricks and mortar. It's silence, broken only by the heavy regular football of the policemen are the songs and shouts of some belated party of revelers. A dull rack was drifting slowly across the sky, and a star or two twinkle dimly here and there through the riffs of the clouds. Homes drove in silence, with his head sunk upon his breast, and the air of a man who was lost in thought, while I sat beside him, curious to learn what this new quest might be, which seemed to tax his powers so sorely, and yet afraid to break in upon the current of his thoughts. We had driven seven miles, and we're beginning to get to the fringe of the belt of suburban villas, when he shook himself, shrugged his shoulders, and lit up his pipe with the air of a man who had satisfied himself that he is acting for the best.

He took a large villa, laid out the grounds very nicely, and lived generally in good style by degrees. He made friends in the neighborhood, and in 18 87 he married the daughter of a local brewer, by whom he now has two Children. He had no occupation, but was interested in several companies, and went into town as a role in the morning returning by the 514 from Cannon Street every night. MrSt Clair is now 37 years of age, is a man of temperate habits, a good husband, a very affectionate father, and a man who was popular with all who knew him
