Guy Medford, a chap of the moneyed class, arrives home at 3 o'clock in the morning. At the breakfast table the next day, he is reprimanded and leaves for the office in anger. A client of Mr. Medford, who is a broker, leaves some bonds and a few thousands of dollars in his hands. He instructs Guy to put them away. Before he does so, Mr. Medford accidentally pushed them into a waste paper basket. That evening Guy does the same thing, and instead of going to the office the next day, writes his father a note, saying that he is leaving for Chicago, as he cannot stand his tyranny. Guy is arrested just as he is about to board the train, as his father, discovering his loss, lays the blame upon his son. However, the son is freed, but is forbidden to come home.

Mr. Medford and his wife are apprised of the fact that their son has embarked on a liner. ... Written by
