Blewit's wife and children were in Europe. lie hoard from them by cable, and ho eont a return message and wished that he could go with it. But no. he was chained to Boston. After their de parture he learned that thero was some business that imperatively demanded bis attention, and he resigned with a sigh his proposed trip across the water. Ho wroto Mrs. Blewit a pathetic letter, in which he regretted the escapade which made him miss the boat on which she departed for foreign shores; and ho said, in his usual effusive vein, that he had given up all hope ot ever seeing the white clitTs ot Albion. He had just posted this letter when he met his evil genius, Staggers, who said: "How do you like keeping bachelor's hall?" "Not at all," was Blewit 's reply; "itB deucedly dull. Nobody in town, and 1 feel lino Robinson Crueoo and bis deso late island." "Minus the animals," suggested stag gers. "Hardly," was Blewit's response. "I have plenty of homeless cats to keep me company. I have a kind of sympathy for them, because they are in much the same condition that I am myself." "A fellow feel'ng makes us wondrous kind. Why don't you open an asylum for abandoned felines? I'll head a sub scription list for raising money to sup port the institution.' "Perhaps if you looked after some of your poor relations it would bo more to the purpose,' said Blewit, sarcastically, as the thought of Staggers' father bend ing under a load of debt to support his family, while his son was a rapid man about town, who was always ready to make a big fellow of himself by opening wine for people who laughed at his ex travagance behind his back. "Hang it, don't be personal!" exclaimed Staggers, not at all pleased by Blewis's not too delicate sarcasm. "Come down to the shore with me and I'll show you how to banish the blues. Let care kill the cat. You've got to live, even if Mrs. Blewit and the kids are having a good time in London foggy London." Blewit weakly accepted this invita tion, and was soon on a train going to a near-by watering place, which was de scribed aB an earthly paradise that com bined the charms of seashore and coun try in an eminent degree. "Ah! this is delightful," said Blewit, after dinner, as he sat on the piazza of the Top Knot House. "The ozone giveB me new life, and the odor from the woods is full of healing balm to the lungs that have been tilled with the vile smells of city thoroughfares." "Ozone be blowed, you old sentiment alist! Come up stairs and have a little game." "You don't mean to say that you came down here to play cards. Don't you get enough of that in town?" "Well, a man must do something. What is the use ot sitting here listening to i lot of women gabbing about dress, or abusing their neighbors? You'll hear more scandal here in five minutes than you will upstairs all night. Come along!'1 "I suppose I'll have to," replied Blew it, resignedly, as ho cast a lingering look at the water where the boats seemed to be nodding to him to stay and enjoy the outdoor beauty of the night. "Let me take a long breath," continued Blewit, "before I go into the tobacco laden atmosphere where you are bring ing me." "Oh! if you want exhilaration, I'll take you where you can get it," was Staggers' reeponse, as he took his com panion into a little closet where about a dozen men were crowded, all intent upon taking what they called "three fingers" from sundry black bottles. "Ah, Blewit!" squeaked Poppers, a very largo man with a very small, bitld hoad and very weak lungs; "catno down to get a little fresh air. did you?" "Yes," was tho rejoinder," but there doesn't seem to bo much of it here?" "True," interrupted Balmy, a little man with a deep bass voice; "but we've gut something that's hotter." "Perhaps you have," sneered Blewit." "but is thero any necessity for going into tho Black Hole of Calcutta to swal low it?" "Well, the fact is, this is a temperance hotel, and there is no bur. Therefore, we have to come in hero to take a nip; but you mustn't givo it away, now that wo have let you behind tho scenes. Our wives don't know that this place ox'sts." "I should think thoy would nose it as they go upstairs," said B.'ewit, with a weak attempt at a pun. "Mrs. Blewit might," ejaculated Balmy "I've heard she could smell out most anything, but as she isn't in these parte, and you are enjoying a selfish picnic, you needn't bo afraid. I'll promise not to write to her, so drink heartily, my boy, tho cable won't carry the nowB to Amanda!" Blewit couldn't stand dialling, so he took his poison with as good grace aa possible, not only once but so vera! times, and he soon forgot all about tho ozone, and was as eager for bluff as anyone, as he followed the party into a room at the top of the house, in tho cupola, itt fact, which was dimly lighted with kerosene oil lamps. It was even more stuffy than the closet they had just loft, and Bmwit couldn't help laughirg as ho remarked: "So this is what you call coming down to the shore to pass a quiet night with your families?" "So moralizing," piped up Poppers; "shuttle the cards and play for mum." How long they had forgotten their cares in the fascination ot poker Blewit did not know, but it must have been somewhere about midnight when, through a haze of smoke, he saw a fe male figure in the doorway It belonged to a diminutive but determined appear ing woman, who exclaimed: "Mr. Blewit, how dare you keep Mr. Poppers up until this hour? A man of your age ought to be engaged in better business than leading married men astray. I'm not surprised that Mrs. Blewit went off to Europe without you!" Having delivered this tirade, the mite of a woman led the gigantic but submis sive Poppers from the room, as Staggers remarked: "I say, Blewit, what do you mean by coming down here and upsotting a nice, quiet family hotel?"
