How he had come to deserve this wealth, any more than .how he had formerly earned disgrace at home, was a problem beyond the reach of his philosophy. It was truo that he had been industrious at tho bank, b,ut no more so than the cashier, who had seven small children and was visibly sinking in decline. Nor v, r as tho stop which had determined hi: 1 , advance— a visit to a dive with a month's wages in his pocket—-vi ;-.(•;, of such transcendent virtue, or oven wisdom, as to seem to merit the favor of tho gods. Meanwhile, John had gone upon bis holidays without : a .word, which Wa's irregular; and thefo had disappeared with • him a certain sum of money, which was out of all bounds of palliation. But he was known to bo careless, and believed to be honest; the manager besides had a regard for him; and littlo was said, although something was no doubt thought, until tho fortnight was finally at an end, and tho time ^ had come for John to reappear.

And suddenly there came upon him a, mad fear lest his father should have locked him in. The notion had no ground in sense; it was probably _ no more than a reminiscence of similar calamities in childhood, for his father's room had always been the chamber of inquisition and the« scene of punishment; but it stuck so rigorously in his mind that he must instantly approach the door and prove its untruth. As ho went he struck upon a drawer loft open in, the business table. It was the money-drawer, a measure of his father's disarray: the money-drawer—perhaps a pointing providence! Who ia to decide, when even divines differ between a pi-evidence and a temptation? or who, ] sitting calmly under his own vino, is to pass a judgment on the doings of a poor, hunted dog, slavishly afraid, slavishly rebellious, like John Nicholson on that particular Sunday? His hand was in the drawer almost before his mind had conceived the hope; and rising to his now situation, ho wrote, sitting in his father's chair and using his father's blotting pad, his pitiful apology and farewell: "My Dear Father: I have taken the money, Tnit 1 wfll pay it back as soon as I am able. You will never hear of me ngnln. I did not mean any harm by nnythini;, so I hope you will try and forgive me. I wish you would say fioodby to Alexander and Maria, but not if you don't want to. I could not wait to see you. really. Please try to forgive me. Your alToc- •tlonute son, JOHN NICHOLSON/' The coins abstracted and the missive written, he could not be gone too soon from the scene of these transgressions; and remembering how his father had once returned from church on some slight illness in the middle of the second psalm, he durst not even make a packet of a change of clothes. Attired as he was ho slipped from the paternal doors, and found himself in -the cool spring air, the thin spring sunshine, and the great Sabbath quiet j •of the city, which was now only pointed by the cawing of the rooks. 'There was not a soul in Randolph, Crescent, nor a so'ul in Quecnsforry street; in this outdoor privacy and the sense of escape, John took heart .again, and with a pathetic sense of leave-taking, ho even ventured up the lane and stood awhile, a strange peri at the gates of a quaint paradise, by the west end of St. George's church. 'They were singing within; and by a strange chance the tune was St. George's "Edinburgh," which boars the name, and was first sung in the •choir of that church. "Who is this King of Glory?" wont the voices from within; and, to John, this was 'like •the end of all Christian observances, for ho was nqw to be a wild man like Ishmael, and his life was to bo cast in homeless places and with godless people. It was thus, with no rising sense of the adventurous, but in mere •desolation and despair, that ho turned his back on his native city, .and sot out on foot for California, with •a more immediate eye to Glasgow OHA'LTEK IV. The Second Sowing. It is no part of mine te narrate tho Adventures of John Nicholson, which were many, but simply hid more momentous misadventures, which wore more than ho desired, and, by human standards, more than he deserved; how ho had vouched California, how he was rooked, and robbed, and "beaten, and starved; how ho was at last taken up by charitable -folks, restored to some degree of self-complacency, and installed as a clerk in a "bank in San Francisco, it would take too long to tell; nor in these ep'sodes were there any marks, of tho peculiar Nicholsonic destiny, for they r ,vero just such matters as befell some thousands of other young adventurers in tho same days and places. But once posted in the bank, ho fell for ?• time into a high degree of good fortune, which, as it was only a longer way about to fresh disaster, it bo- hooves me to explain. It was his luck to meet a young man in what is technically called a •"dive," and thanks to his monthly From some sense of this, and of ',"!•:•. dizzy see-saw—heaven high, hell deep —on which men sit clutching; or perhaps fearing that the sources of his fortune might be insidiously traced to some root in the field of potty cash; he stuck to his work, said not a word of his new circumstances, and kept his acco'unt with a bank in a'different quarter of tho town. The concealment, innocent as it seems, was tho first step in the tragi-comcdy of John's existence. Meanwhile he had never written homo. Whether from diffidence or shame, or a touch of linger, or mere procrastination, or because, as we have seen, he had no skill in literary arts, or because, as I am sometimes tempted to suppose, there is a law in human nature that prevents young men, not otherwise beasts, from the performance of this simple act of piety, months and years had gone ^by and John had never written. Tho habit of not writing, indeed, was already fixed before ho had begun to come into his fortune, and it was only tho difficulty of breaking this long silence that withheld him from an instant restitution of tho money he had stolen, or, as ho preferred to call it, borrowed. In vain he sat before paper, attending on inspiration. That heavenly nymph, beyond suggesting the words "my dear father,"remained obstinately silent; and presently John would crumple up tho sheet and decide, as soon as he had "a good chance," to carry tho money home in person. And this delay, which is indefensible, was his second step into the snares of fortune. Ten years had passed and John was drawing near to thirty. Ho had kept the promise of his boyhood, and was now of a lusty frame, verging toward corpulence; good features, good eyes, a genial manner, a ready laugh, a long pair of sandy whiskers, a clash of an American accent, a close familiarity with tho groat American joke, and a certain likeness to a K-y-1 P-rs-a-ge, who shall remain nameless for mo, made up the man's externals as he could be viewed in society. Inwardly, in spite of his gross body and highly maseulino whiskers, ho was more like a maiden .ady than a man of twenty-nine. It chanced one day, as he was strolling down Market street on tho eve of his fortnight's holiday, that liis eye was caught by certain railway bills, and in very idleness of mind he calculated that he might bo home for Christmas if ho started on tho morrow. The fancy thrilled him desire, and in one moment he decided ho would go. There was much to bo done; his portmanteau to be packed, a credit to be got from tho bank, where ho was a wealthy customer, and certain offices to bo transacted for that other bank in which ho was an humble clerk; and it chanced, in conformity with human nature, that out of all this business it was the last that came to be neglected. Night found him not only equipped with money of his own, but once more, as on that former occasion, saddled with a considerable sum of other people's. Now it chanced there lived in tho same boarding-houso a fellow-clerk of his, an honest fellow, with what is called a weakness for drink—though it might, in this case, have boon called a strength, for the victim had been drunk for weeks together without tho briefest intermission. To this unfortunate John entrusted a letter, with an enclosure of bonds, addressed to the bank manager. Even as ho did so he thought ho perceived a certain haziness of oyo and speech in his trustee; but he was too hopeful to bo stayed, silenced in - voice of warning' in his bosom, black; and when inquiries were made and the penniless clerk wi. found to have amassed thousands of dollars, and kept them secretly in a rival establishment, tho stoutest of his friends abandoned him, tho books were overhauled for traces oE ancient and artful fraud, and though none were found, there still prevailed a general impression of loss. Tho telegraph was sot in motion; and tho correspondent of tho bank in Edinburgh, for which place it was understood that John had armed himself with extensive credits, was .warned to communicate with tho police. Now this correspondent was a friend of Mr. Nicholson's; he was well acquainted with the talc of John's calamitous disappearance from Edinburgh; and putting one thing with another, hasted with tho first word of this scandal, not to tho police, but to his friend. Tho old gentleman had long regarded his son as one dead; John's place had been taken, the memory of his faults had already fallen to bo one of. those old aches, which awaken again indeed upon occasion, but which we can always vanquished by an effort of tho will; and to have tho long lost resuscitated in a fresh disgrace was doubly bitter. "Macoweu," said tho old man, "this must bo hushed up, if possible. If I give you a check for this sum, about which they are certain, could you take it on yourself to lot tho matter rest?" "I will," said 'Macowon. "I will take tho risk of it." "You understand," resumed Mr. Nicholson, speaking precisely, but with ashen lips, "I do this for my family, not for that unhappy young man. If it should turn out that those suspicions are correct, and ho_ has embezzled largo sums ho must lie on his bed as ho has made it." And then looking up at Macowon with a nod, and one of his strange smiles: "Good-by," said he; and Macowon, perceiving the case to bo too grave for consolation, took himself olf, and blessed God on his way homo that ho was childless.

Henceforth we have to follow the 'spectacle of a man who was a more whiptop for calamity; on whoso unmerited misadventures not even the humorist can look without pity, and not even tt^ philosopher without alarm. Tha* same nifht the clerk entered CHAPTER V. Tho Prodigal's Return. By a little after noon on tho eve of Christmas John had left his portmanteau in the cloak-room, and stepped forth into Prince's street, with a wonderful expansion of tho soul, such as men enjoy on the completion of long- nourished schemes. Ho was at homo again, incognito and rich; presently with | he could enter his father's house by means of tho pass-key, which ho had piously preserved through all his wanderings; ho would throw down tho borrowed money; there would_bo a reconciliation, tho details of which ho frequently arranged; and ho saw himself, during tho next month, made welcome in many stately houses at many frigid dinner parties, taking his shave in tho conversation with tho freedom of the man and the traveler, and laying down the law upon finance with the authority of a successful investor. But this programme was not to bo begun before evening—not till just before dinner, indeed, at which meal tho reassembled family were to sit roseate, and tho best wine, tho modern fatted calf, should How for tho prodigal's return.
