Jones.and_Smith ;_Were ,RC lmelfelloWs,'
they were linkediogether by the bands
of InendshiP, they were never sundered.
Fate seemed to have ordered it so: ...They.
both entered the: merchant service; they
sailed together, and in the seine vessel.
The . wish of one was the wish of the oth
er. They thade_seVeral voyages; atleigth,
they beaame tired of a iehliaring life, and
resolved to settle oirshore. .. . '

small lt%acy left him; Which enabled them'
o- start pretty thir. . All went on smooth

:course, was tired, and thought the busi

but -by - spine

'did not back the right horse. • Smith neg

than follow ' his _partner'.s exaniple ; • the

a few pounds left between them. Jones
remembered that he had an uncle living
in Scotland. They had an uncle who .re
sided in. London,who !fad 'occasionally sup
plied .their -immediate Wa ti l i t:, and Who al
so, at such times, kindly k. care of por
tions of their wardrobes or. jewelry. This
uncle thek 'always found interested—they
looped to find the Scottish uncle enteres6hg.
Jones knew that he was rich, and that
his:coat of arms Was - not.l i .ombar diatii He
feared a refitsal of assistnnee were- he to
write, but, felt asinted a personal .applica
tion would be sure to prove successful.
So to Scotland they determined at once
to wend . their way. .-

Let it be remenibereil there were no
railroadi when Omit...journey Was tesolved
upon, no cheap trips, and that the,fare by
coach froM• London to Edinburgh was
very expensive, besith's the expected fees
to coachmen and guards. They started,

on their. road—about an eighth portion of
their journey
,only—when they diScovered
that their funds were exhausted.• There
Was no getting trust from - coachmen .or
book-keepers, a promissory note was not.
• negotiable at the booking office. What
was to be done? • There they were- en- .
niless among ' strangers;, all their avail*
file property had already been Converted
into cash..- Smith began to speculate as
to . whether
-he could find vi uncle in the
town 'thewere in, who would take charge
i .of his coat; for, as the weather was Very
l• warp, he would be glad •to get of that
garment as lip could • call for it on his re
(.turn. Jones agreed with- him—it was
warm, anChe would alio he Ord to be .
relieved fr4im the incumbrance obis _ 'coat.
The not being familiarly known to
Smith,"no doitbt, would let then have a
little money as security for the safe. keep
ing of their
,garments; but after making
strict inquiry, they found no such relative
resided there. • There, were no. "gin pala
ces" in that town, therefore - it would not
answer the pUrposeof any pawnbroker -to
establish himself there.:, Seeing no chance -
, of raising the necessary eiipply, they re;
solved 'to walk; Soon they started, whil

long.- • When conversation sagged, they
could,nOt it they Tviould, be miserable—

time they had occupied, they must have
