THE REASON WHY OUR HERO
JOINED THE MILITIA.
Brent Adams was a dashing young New Yorker.
He was a handsome young fellow, and the possessor of " whips" of money.
Physically he had the making of an athlete, but having spent most of his time lounging around hotel corridors in the day time, and the parlors of his lady friends in the evening, he had failed in acquiring that strength and vigor of physique that his fine build warranted.
His lazy and sumptuous habits had failed to develop either the physical or mental calibre that distinguishes the majority of young men of the present day.
He was, in fact, an effeminate, dressy, pretty, young ladies' man; and probably he would never have become anything else had not a certain annoying incident inaugurated a complete change in his mode of life.
One morning, a rough-looking man waited upon Brent Adams and served him with a writ demanding his presence at a certain court to do jury duty.
