Leaving Wnltor busily engaged In sell

nond household, and inquire how the
aienibers of tiiat Interesting family fared
ifter Walter's- departure.
Joshua's discontent increased daily. IIo
rv-ns now eighteen, and his father abso
lutely refused to increase his allowance
sf twenty-five cents a week, which was
;ertninly ridiculously small for a boy of
While he was thinking this matter over
i dangerous thought entered his mind.
His father, he knew, had a small brass
aailcd trunk, in which he kept his money
ind securities. He had seen him going
'o it more than once.
"I wonder how much he's got in it,"
thought Joshua. "As it's all coming to
mo some day there's no harm In my
There seemed little chance of finding
3Ut, however. Tho trunk was always
locked, and Mr. Drutnmond carried the
toy about with him in his pocket. If he
hod been a "careless man, there might
bnve been some chance of his some day
(caving the trunk unlocked, or mislaying
the key ; but in money matters Mr. Drura
mond was never careless. Joshua would
have been obliged to wait years, if he
had depended upon this contingency.
One day, however, Joshua found in the
road a bunch of keys of various sizes at
tached to a ring. lie cared very little
to whom they belonged, but it Hashed
apon him at once that one of these keys
might fit his father's strong box. He hur
ried home at once with his treasure and
ran upstairs breathless with excitement.
He knew where the trunk was kept. Mr.
Drummond, relying on the security of the
lock, kept it in the closet of his bed
Joshua made his way at once to the
iloset, and, entering, began to try his
keys, one after the other. The very
lest one was successful in opening the
Joshua trembled with excitement as he
saw the contents of the trunk laid open
to his gaze, ne turned over the papers
nervously, hoping to come upon some rolls
of bills. In one corner he found fifty
dollars in gold pieces. Besides these,
there were some mortgages, in which he
felt little interest. But among the con
tents of the trunk were some folded pa
pers which he recognized at once ns Unit
ed States bonds. Opening one of them,
he found it to be a Five-Twenty bond for
ive hundred dollars.
Five hundred dollars! What could be
aot do with five hundred dollars! He
iould go to the city and board and enjoy
himself meanwhile, till he could find a
place. His galling dependence would be
aver, and he would be his own master.
True, it would be a theft, but Joshua
had an excuse ready.
"It will all be mine some day," he said
to himself. "It's only taking a part of
ny own in advance."
He seized the gold, and the bond, hast
Jy concealing both in his breast pocket,
went downstairs, first locking the trunk,
nd putting It away where he found it.
He got out of the house without his
mother seeing him, and made his way to
railway station four miles distant,
where he purchased a ticket for New
He took a 'seat by a window, and, as
the car began to move, he said to himself,

Three months later Walter arrived ct
Columbus, the capital of the State, after
a business tour of considerable length,
during which he had visited from twenty
to thirty different towns and villages. lie
had now got accustomed to the business,
and understood better what arguments to
employ to those whom he wished to pur
chase his book. The consequence was
that he baa met with a degree of success
which bad far exceeded his anticipations.
He had tested his powers, and found
that they were quite equal to the task
he had undertaken that of earning his
jwn living. He had paddled his own canoe
thus far without assistance, and he felt
confident that, if his health continued
good, he should be able to do so here
after. After eating supper, and spending an
aour or two in the public room of the
hotel, Walter went up to his room. Here
he took out a blank boot, in which he
kept an account of his sales and expendi
tures, and, taking a piece of paper, fig
ured up the grand result. He wished to
know just how he stood.
After a brief computation, he paid,
with satisfaction, "I have sold two hun
dred and eighty books, which gives a
cross profit of three hundred and fifty
dollars. My expenses have been exactly
two hundred and sixty three dollars, That
leaves me oighty-seven dollars net profit."
This was a result which might well
yield Walter satisfaction. He was only
fifteen, and this was bis first business ex
perience. Moreover, lie was nearly a
thousand miles nway from home and
frlonds, surrounded by strangers. 1'ct, by
liis energy and business ability, he bad
been able to pay all his expenses, and
these, of course, were considerable, ns lie
was constantly moving, and yet had made
i dollar a day clear profit
, "That is rather better than working for
my board In Mr. Drummond's store," he
reflected. "I am afraid it would have
taken roe n long time to make my for
tune if I had stayed there. I wonder
how my amiable cousin Joshua is getting
This thought led to tho sudden recol
lection that ha had written to Mr. Shaw,
asking him to write to the hotel at Co
lumbus, where he was now stopping, giv
ing him any news that he might consider
interesting. Such a letter might be await
He went downstairs, and approached
"Hare any letters been, received here
for me?" he Inquired
What name?" usked tho clerk.
"There is a letter for that address. It
was received a week'slnce."
"Give It to me," said Walter, eagerly.
He took tho lettor, and recognized at
once in the address Clement Shaw's: ir
regular handwriting. Cut off, ns ho had
been for over n month, from all com
munication with former friends, ho grasp
ed tho letter with a sensation of Joy, and
hurried back to his room to read it quiet
ly, and without risk of interruption.
Tho letter ran as follows:
"My Dear Young Friend I have just
received your letter asking mo to write
you at Columbus. I am glad to obtain
your address, as I have a matter of im
portance to speak of. First, however, let
me congratulate you on the success you
have met with as a book agent. It is not
a business to which I should advise you
to devote yourself permanently; but I
have no doubt that the experience which
you acquire, and the necessary contact
into which it brings you with different
classes of people, will do you good, while
the new scenes which it brings before
your eyes will gratify tho natural love
of ndventure which you share In common
with those of your age. When you sot
out, X had misgivings ns to your success,
I admit ,v It was certainly an arduous
undertaking for a boy of fifteen; but
you have already demonstrated that you
are able to paddle your own canoe, and
I shall hereafter feel confident of your
success Jn life, so far at least as relates
to earning your living. That you may
also be successful in building up a good
character, and taking an honorable posi
tion among your fellow-men, I earnestly
"I now come to the business upon which
I wish to speak to you.
"You will remember that a man named
James Wall was prominently identified
with the Great Metropolitan Mining Com
pany, by which your poor father lost his
fortune. Indeed, this Wall, who Is a
plausible sort of fellow, was the one who
induced him to embark in this disastrous
speculation. I suspect ho has feathered
his. own nest pretty well already, and
that he intends to do so still more. I
was surprised to hear from him some
ten days since. I will not copy the let
ter, but send you the substance of it He
reports that in winding up the affairs of
the company there is a prospect of real
ising two per cent for the stockholders,
which, as your father owned' a thousand
shares, would yield two thousand dollars.
It may be some time, he adds, before tho
dividend will be declared and paid. He
professes a willingness, however to pay
two thousand dollars cash for a transfer
of your father's claims upon the com
pany. "Xow, two thousand dollars are not
to be despised ; but my impression is thnt
such a man as James Wall would never
have made such an offer if he had not
expected the assets would amount to
considerably more than two per cent I
am unwilling to close with the offer until
I know more about the affairs of the
company. Here it has struck me that
you can be of assistance. This Wail lives
in a town named Portville, In Wiscon
sin, on the shore of Lake Superior. I
would suggest that you change your name,
go at once to Portville, and find out
what you can. I can give you no in
structions, but must trust to your own
native shrewdness, in which I feel sure
you are not deficient If it should be
necessary to give up your present busi
ness, do so without hesitation, since tho
other business is of more importance. I
will write Mr. Wall that I have his offer
under consideration. If you need money,
draw upon me.
"I hear that Joshua Drummond has
run away from liome, carrying away con
siderable money belonging to his father.
The latter appears to lament the loss of
his money more than of his son.
"I remain your sincere friend,
Tliis letter gave Walter .much food for
reflection. He determined to give up his
book agency, and leave as soon as pos
sible for Portville. It was encouraging
to think that, in any event, he was likely
to realize two thousand dollars from the
minine shares, which he had looked upon
as valueless. Besides, he felt there was
every reason to hope they would prove
even more valuable.
Three days later, having closed his ac
counts as agent he started for Portville.
He bad made a new start in life, and
this unexpected money would prove a
stepping stone to new ambitions. His
future proved his courage and integrity,
with his motto nlways, "Strong and
