When a great millionaire mores Ch&wadays the' event takes on a charac- .'tfcr that is not distinguished by Jeffer- /,sonlah simplicity, says the New York s'Suh, Whefc Mr. Webb gets tired of ^Vermont and takes his family to No\v- 1 "port or Narragansott, or Mr. Vanderbilt moves from one of his country houses to another, or the Astdrs leave tho Hudson for Khodo Island, the sightseers are interested. Mr. Webb 'has one house at Newport and another at Narrag-aiisett, which is across the ba,y. Tho Narragahsstfc "house is used for governesses, servants and ; children, and is a convenient place to stop When one of the Webb yaclits Hiti? across from Newport. >• When a great millionaire moves the family is usually stored away in n special car which is hitched to the tail ^end of an e.tpvess. train and shifted ii-wiix ahe road to "another, so that no changes are necessary. Tho stable is 'transported with the coachman driving a four-in-hand loaded down with stable 'trappings. Following him is another ,man with a victoria and brougham Oswathed in clothes to protect them trom the dust, and dog carts and \ village ea'ris and phaetons, di'iven by l^thc stable boys, bring up the rear with .tors and saddle horses. The big little yachts are towed along from one place to another in a similar fashion, to the delight of tho sight-seers, and discussions "upon tho wealth of the millionaire aqq stimulated all along route.

"Was it. while you were a pirate?" "Oh, no; it. was entirely a separate affair*.the desert island adventure. It was nearly about the same time, however. That is, it was either just, after or just before I was a pittite. I suppose I had gained quite a taste for the seQ at that time," remarked Billy, mod' Look Out for Cold AVeatlier "But ride insido of. the electric lighted, steam heated, vestibule apartment trains of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad and you will be ns warm, comfortable and cheorful as iu your own 'library or boudoir.

I often thought what a lonely life those sailors had who were oust upon desert islands. Thou tiioy had it whole islaml all to themselves, nobody to fell them that 1lu»y must go to bed—" hero Billy gave me a reproving glance— "or thai, they nmst jret: up, •or that they innst wasliK.hoir face and hands, or must s» iit> stn'irs and 'put on a clean collar.

"An excellent scheme," I murmured. "Yes, and su> 1 ifihtmght it over and made up my iniuil that it could be managed." "Most things can,"" I replied. "So I inquired and found :i captain," continued Billy, •"who was going to sail into a deserted part, of tliciocwin, where there were probably si good many desert islands and I asked him what he would charjw 1«» cast me on OIK; of them. He. didB'it charge very much for he seemed to 'think it was, a kind of a ."joke. But I <WWt mean it for ti Joke, for I often woiwHe.rod why people didn't get cast, on tlrem oi'tener when it was such great 'fum. So we .sailed off our day, snld lie, "Hero yoti are!" and 1 looked out of flHv window, I mean ovei the side «f tlw -ship, and I saw a vcr> nice desert: islii'iicl right in front of us "Anil I said *«> the- captain, 'Well thut, will do!"

And I suid: 'W you may W yt'm'Iiko!' for I thought, if I should repent tlien 1 could go back." "Thnt. is 'a3w;i?'S-a prudent, way to arrange mailers, Willy." "Yes.

"It Is frt-riiuge, T.illy!" "Well, -of c-o'ursi?, the first tiling I did was -to begin to explore thft island. I happened to 'Wnd u note-book and -a pencil HI my jinoket, mid I wrote down iill «bout itlie 'diniensioais of th« island, I1 ml I divnv -mnps 'of it, and marked nil the lilacs where I found water or <lls- eovcred nioinrtains or made any other intt»rc»st1nK flincoveries. So far as II , could sec>j iilae '.island was not inhabited, and I did uat diud any wild ben..ts about which relieved .my mind. I found out afterwards Unit a few lions and tigers and such things 'did inhabit a jungle plenty of sand about to make mortar, mirt t worked so Imrtf that 1 finished it within n few days. By that time. I had Ix'tfim to fict pretty lired of eaiing fish, si) I besan 1o think how I i-otild arrange to fret anything else. I had plenty of pistols and guns ntld powder' nlid shot with inK Sb I resolved to inakt- n another tour of the island* and see if: 1 couldn't, discover some game which I eotild limit nml out. My trip was very successful. 1 found that. Ihe mountain in the' center of tho island abounded with deer of various kinds.. So I'shot one aiul managed with great labor to drag it rtinvii to my house, mid this gave mo meat, eaioligli to hist for many days. About the same time I made, nii- olhcr fortunate discovery. In the side of (mother mountain 1 found a great cave, and one day I started to explore this, and built into tho side of It 1 discovered an immense hake-shop. It hiul irobably boon built there by the same nen who had built the brick yard. The mrth and stones of the eave had fallen lown right. In front of tho oven door, so that It was slopped up. But, t dug it nil and found the oven full of loaves of n-ead, and cakes and pies. Whether hey had been there for safe keeping >r not, I don't know. But, jit nny rate, hey had kept safe enough, and after hat 1 hud a fresh loaf of bread every lay. and n pie and cake, too. "Then, from time to tlmo. after that liscovery I. made others. I found out where, they linil kent a lnrgi> grocery (tore. It. was stocked with nil kinds oC l>rovlsiuiis. And this store, too, wds located In the Inside of a cave, so that the earth nml siongs fnlling in front of it had kept, the things all sweet and good. Another tlmo 1 discovered, in the same way. n. big clothing establishment. It. wan full of nil kinds of clothes, of all sizes. So 1 had no trouble after that in getting any clothes 1 wanted. And I'm sun.'," suid Billy triumphantly, "I think that; was a bolter kind of a desert, island than the ones yon usually read about. "What's the .use, of lindiug (lie proper kind of imimnls mid. finding needles and Ihroiid suul then sewing up a. suit of clwthos for yourself when you can just «s well find the clothing house, and find tlu; clothes already made to put wnV" "None at all," I responded promptly. "I think your plan is much superior, Billy. And the best, thing you can do is to advertise It for the beuelit of future navigators who iii'u cast upon desert. Islands." "Then," went: on Billy, "I lived upon that desert Island for some tlmo, and I found it a very pleasant, comfortable pinco to live. As fast as I needed a thing I went out and discovered it T Cwpkott. llijp Fl*li, Jn the center of the island, but they never disturbed me. I suppose, proba? bly, they feared man." "That, might be, Billy. But what did you get to eat'/" "Well, that lirst night I happened for- innately to reincmbtu- tlitit the captajii's wife had put up an excellent dinner for me before I left, ' So J ate that, and then, thanking Providence to\- having cast me upon a desert Ishmd at Just, I Jaid down on the grass and w<J»t to sleep." "For a few days after that I subsisted principally upon the llsli I caught.

"»So some of tlie passengers stayed there, and I believe they established a great city then. 1 , and it stands to this day. As for me, 1 sailed away with the. captain till we reached home again, and as we sailed up New York harboi the captain said to me, says he: " 'Here you are!' and there wo were. "Such desert islands as that, Billy,'' J exclaimed, are things to dream of Bright ideals that fade only Ju the pro- sale light of every day." Billy gracefully accepted tho coinpli- ment. "I think so myself," ho said. "The desert islands I've read about are vorj good, but 1 always thought 1 could lintl u better ono'lf I set about it. It is trm that I th-Giimed about it many a time.' "Then suppose, my little lud," I an swerad him, you go and dream about it again." And I suppose ho did, for he went that way. "^ Baking- Powder Absolutely pure* .
