SCopyright, 1910, by American Press

Humphrey Miller was lying on the
grass one July afternoon In the center
of the square about which clustered
the village of Atherton. Humphrey
was a typical case of a boy born to
the plow who yearned for something
better, at least more intellectual. He
wished to go to college and study a
profession. He was ready to work his
way while studying, but just as he
was about to mftriculate his father
died, the farm was sold out under a
mortgage, and the boy's mother and
sister were thrown upon him for sup-
port. To bear this burden and his own
as a student appeared to him a matter
of sheer impossibility. He must forego I
his .vroects. accept a situation offered

of his college course. Each year he
w\:is growigy older and at the time of
his grziaduation had attained the season
ihrv t ono3 b,-gtns to thiuli of his domes-
:lc future. His thoughts during this
period were'A! of Lucina Clark.
While In college Humphrey took one
or two scholarships ihich brought
him monetary assistance, but beyond
this he had too much on his hands to
study for prizes or honors in his class.
At the time of his graduation nearly
all his friends at Atherton. including
Lucinn Clark. went over to attend the
exercises at the college. Rose Wyman
had become the principal of a school
for small children, and the exercises of
her own pupils prevented her from
seeing her friend graduate.
Humphrey had studied enough law
while in college to enable him to get a
situation in an office that would pay
him a meager salary and give him such
a legal education as may be obtained
from office practice. Therefore he did
not attend a law school. He preferred
to stop the payments of his unknown
friend. He therefore directed his moth-
er to return the tirst payment made
after he began his duties and ask the
cashier of the bank from which it came
If he might not now know to whom he

him n a counfry'store and go to work.
He was about to arise and walk to a
corner of the square where the store in
question was located to announce that
he would begin his duties the next
morning when be heard a whizzing
sound anu saw a short distance from
him an arrow standing with its point
imbedded In the ground. To the feath-
ered end hung a bit of paper, which.
now that the arrow was at rest, floated
idly in the wind. Humphrey arose,
went to the arrow, broke the string
that held the paper and found the fol-
lowing words written in pencil:
Go to college. Your mother and silser
will be provided for.
Humphrey swept with his eye the
square and the house that Il;!-d t.
,The former was empty; tLi- i:pr
?liOW My no irft, 4 ,b-l*iae son -whit44ad-
shot the arrow. They were mostly
dwellings, and Humphrey knew nearly
all of the people who lived in them.
He began at once to con over those
among whom the mysterious archer
might be found. There Was Peter
Owens, a friend of his father, who was
well to do, but Mr. Owens was not a
man to hide a charity under a bushel.
There was Harvey Dixon. his mother's
cousin, but Dixon had all he could do
to provide for his own family. There
was his intimate friend. Bob Clark,
who had been left a legacy by his
grandmother. Humphrey knew that
Bob when he was younger had been
fond of archery. Besides, Bob's sister
Lucina had shown by her actions that
she admired Humphrey. Had not Lu-
cina something to-do with the matter?
Humphrey thought all the rest of the
day about the proposed benefaction
and in the evening went to see Rose
Wyman, a girl in whose judgment he
had great confidence, Intending to ask
her to find out for him who had shot
the arrow. Rose did not live on the
square and. having no means, could
not possibly have had anything to do
with the message. He told her of.the
circumstance and that he could not ac-
cept the favor without knowing the
donor and agreeing to repay in time
the amount expended upon him. Would
she help him?
Rose always took time to consider
before reaching her decisions. Finally
she said:
'"If the person who shot the arrow
wished to be known he or she would
not have taken that means of commu-
nicatlng. To endeavor to discover the
donor would be ungrateful in you. My
advice to you is to accept the gift as it
is offered."
"You've got a lot of horse sense in
that head of yours. Rose," w'as the re-
ply. "I'll tale or urt ndl .l-t-." -
Humphrey 'eft her, wondering bow
a girl no older than himself could have
so much foresight. Relying upon her
judgment, he acted on her advice,
went to college that autumn, rang the
college bell for his tuition, did all sorts
of odd jobs and in his third and fourth
year taught school. Besides this, he
read the first books used by students
of law.
The promise of his unknown friend
to provide for his mother and sister
was kept, but the amounts provided
were small and at times irregularly
paid. Humphrey. remembering Rose's
words that it would be ungrateful for
him to endeavor to discover who was
the donor, tokd his mother not to look

received any satisfaction.

In the Ex-Libris Journal an amusing
anecdote is given of a man anxious for
a coat of arms and fortunate in finding
one. A secondhand bookseller bought
at a country sale some 800 volumes of
handsome but unsalable old sermons.
books on theology and the like.
He placed a number of these outside
his shop. Soon afterward a well dress-
ed man entered and said, "Have you
any more of this kind of books with
this shield on them?" pointing to the
bookplate attached, which bore the
arms and name of a good old country
"That box, sir, Is full of books from
the same house," answered the book-
"What do you ask for them?" in-
quired the man. "I'm going back to
Chicago, and I want to take some
books, and these will just fit me, name
and all. Just you sort out all that have

taking time for counultadtio with his
principal returtind md answered that
whenever he felt abiundaatly able to
repay the amount the donor's name
would be given him. -Utntil then there
could be nothing gained by furnishing
the desired informntlon.
Humphrey was much disappointed.
Hle thought of charging Bub Clark
with being a party to the matter of his
beuefactlnns; but, thinking that itf his
lister were involved without his
ktowh'dgo it might rise a delicate
complication, be dealsted. Since the

perplexity he remeuL.' d that he had
A:, b<.9a it#l wd'^by He Ty&iam a judg-
ment thus far, and it would perhaps
be better to take counsel with her be-
fore going any further. A
Rose confirmed his idea that If Lu-
cina Clark had had anything to do
with the matter, should be speak to
Bob, complications might arise. In-
deed, Rose was of the opinion that if
any woman had been the donor the sit-
uation might become very embarrass-
ing. She advised Humphrey not to let
the benefaction Influence him in the
matter of love. If he loved Lucina he
should tell her so, shutting his eyes to
the fact that she might have secured
for him the assistance which had ena-
bled him to obtain a college education.
If he did not love her for herself with-
out this (hypothetical) favor he should
not propose to her on account of it.
Humphrey left his friend, having
gained a new item of knowledge. He
had spent four years at college and
come home to learn that a girl with a
common school education bad more
sense than he had. He felt like saying
with the poet. "Knowledge comes, but
wisdom lingers "
He made up his mind not to act In
the matter without Rose's sanction.
But he seriously considered offering
himself to Lucina Clark, He believed
that there were nine chances in ten
that she was at least indirectly con-
cerned in the matter, and if she were
the whole would make a very pretty
romance. But, not being sure of his
love for her, he concluded to wait. It
struck him, moreover, that he would
tot like to confess to the practical
Ro0e that he was Influenced by this
supposed "pretty romance." He had
come to dread Rose's unromantic way
of looking at things. He thought that
it she bad only had a little of the ideal
in her nature he migbt hare consid-
ered her a sweetheart inslrad of a
frte'?d.. -
Bilt Humphrcy coi, not make up
his mind that he loved Luclna Clark
exclusive of the gratitude, he felt for
her supposed favor. One day he went
to Rose and told her this. He also
told her that he had borne the un-
certainty attached to the secret long
enough and it. was time be was re-
leved of-t. He also desired to com-
mence to make small payments return-
ing the amount he bad received. To
do this he must. have the name of the
donor and be had been told that It
would at such time be proper for him
to make inquiries to that end.
Rose considered awhile replying, then
advised him that if such was his in-
tention be might with propriety ask
the cashier if he would reveal the se-
cret Humphrey was so delighted that
he was about to go to the bank at once
when Rose stopped him.
"You have plenty of time," she said.
"I make it the rule of my life to sleep
over important decisions whenever it
is possible. Go tomorrow."
"Just like you, Rose," he exclaimed-
"no impulse, no romance! But you
make up the deficiency in mighty good
Humphrey went to the bank next
morning and asked for the name of
his benefactor. He expected that the
cashier would ask for time in which
to get the consent of his principal. In
this Humphrey was mistaken. He had
already been authorized.
"Rosalie Wyman," was the reply.
Humphrey gaped at the man for a
while and then without a word rushed
out of the bank and did not stop till
he found Rose.
"Rose," he said, "I would like to tor-
ture you and then burn you at the
stake. How did you do it?"
"Worked and saved.".
"Well. all I have to say to you is

would find herself endeavoring to solve
the problem of the lost wagon train.
As a last resort Henry Merryweather
resolved to go out to the region where
the train was last seen with a view to
solving the mystery. He hoped that if
he could bring back any plausible solu-
tion Elizabeth would accept it and she
would regain her normal status. With-
out saying anything to her In reference
to his Intention he set out for the
Sierra Nevddas and the region where
the train had been last seen.
Fifteen years had passed since the
tragedy or whatever it was occurred,
and settlers had come into the region
that had been a solitude. Henry, ob-
taining a good horse, set out to go
over the pass where the train had
been lost. The mystery was so well
known that he had no difficulty in lo-
cating the position where it had been
last seen. One of the equipment he
possessed for his quest was a taste for
geology. As he rode along he noted
the character of the rocks, the flow of
the streams, the configuration of the
soil. As he passed through a canyon
in which ran a mountain stream he
came to a point where the ground
formed a dam, making a small lake.
It seemed to him that this could not

The Wagon Train That Was i
S Lost In the Mountains

SCopyright. 1910, by American Press
4 Association.

Y-ears ago, when there were no rall-
roads between the Atlantic and I'a-
citlc oceans. a wagon train was lost Int
the Sierra Nevada mountains It was
last seen by some Indian hunters.
Set rching parties went out to find It
without success. At laxt it was given
up and forsr'tten.
The leader of the party was Edward
Earle. He wias a a ldower with a little
daughter. Ei.:ibeth, whom he had left
In the east in care of ~ts sister. Eliza-
beth was five years old when her fa-
ther was last heard from, but she toos
a deep interest tin the story of his dis-
appearance What to older people was
a mystery (was to her a child's story
similar to those she read tn her fairy
books. It did not occur to her that
there was anything more wonderful in
the- disappearance of a wagon train
consisting of half a dozen teams and
ten or twelve people than in changing
a m;iu lue a frog. in other words,
she did not realize that (he one really
happened and the other was Impossi-
But as Elizabeth grew beyond the
age to be Impressed by the Imagination
this story of the lost wagon train be-
gan to grow upon her. Had it not been
given to her bythose in whom she. had
confidence she would not have believ-
ed it A man might disappear to re-
turn many years after with an expla-
nation. But how could wagons, horses
and men all go out like a candle?
Elizabeth was the only person who
fancied that ,her father would some
day come back. Her elders did not op-
pose her in this. though" they did not
.- cndo ,1o atgro wmiil her. But as time
wore on she realized that the case of
the wagon train her father conducted
was like that of a ship going down un-
der some marine catastrophe, carrying
with it every living person. There
came a hope h tht er father had left
some message for her which she would
some day receive. She web told that
he had had some property, but be
aloue knew where It was located. No
will bad ever been found nor any
other papers to throw light upon his
affairs. But this was not strange since
he had all his effects with him.
,By the time flizatheb had become
eighteen this question of her father's
disappearance had grown upon her to
sucho a extent that It tw ie a sort of
moiumantla. P'oslbly this resulted
from trying to solve an nlusoluble ques-
tion. She was continually asking her-
self how such a tiing could happen.
One of hbr suppositions was that the
train had leen carried away by a
cloudburst. Another was that it had
bcou buried under an avalanche. But
In the cas of the cloudburst the re-
mains of men. horses and wagons
would be carried down where they
would be seen. and in the case of the
avalanche they would appear as soon
as the snow melted. It wa.s brooding
on these problems that at last threat-
ened to affect Elizabeth's mind.
When Henry Morryweat her began to
court Elizabeth her aunt hoped that a
living Interest would relieve her from
the burden of a dead one. Henry was
a tine fellow and grew more and more
wrapped in the serious girl, made so
by a mystery. By delicate attentions
he endeavored to withdraw her mind
from the topic upon which it was ab-
normally fastened. But his efforts
were a failure. Despite ail he could do
be elicited only an occasional smile, a
temporary interest.
The time had come when Elizabeth
felt that she must relieve her aunt of
her support, and she accepted a posi-
tion as teacher in a school. Occupa-
tion helped her in the matter that was
troubling her. but did not cure her.
Often in the midst of her duties she

would make a great change in the
girl he loved.
One evening Elizabeth heard a foot-
step in the hall, and a moment later
she was clasped in the strong arms
of Henry Merryweather.
"The mystery is solved, sweet-
heart!" he exclaimed.
He led her to a sofa and gave her
an account of his efforts and their
outcome. "And now," be continued,
"there Is news intrinsically of far
greater importance to you than the
solving of the mystery. You are very
rich. Your father before starting on
his last earthly journey made a will
leaving you all be possessed. It was
of no value then. but now on a por-
tion of it is one of the largest mines
in the west You are the real owner,
and I have brought you a proposition
from its wrongful owners to transfer
to you one-third of the stock of the
company. This alone will give you a
splendid Income."
As the lover had expected, the un-
raveling of the mystery and the
changes it led to in Elizabeth's life
relieved her of her unhealthy current
of thought and gave her new mental
occupation. Not the leas* of the re-

on the dam were all very young. He
wondered if it had not been thrown
across the stream by some shaking of
the earth. He looked up and saw that
the soil on which be stood formed a
direct incline for several thousand
feet to a spot where a side of a moun-
tain seemed to have been scooped out.
It occurred to him that a large mass
of earth far above had slid down and
formed the dam on which be stood.
Might not the lost wagon train have
been buried under this landslide?
The more be studied the conflgura-
tions about him the more he was con-
vinced that some cause, either a clap
of thunder, a snowslide or -an earth-
-,uake, had loosened the mountain side
and thrown it down and across the
road. Then by riding back and forth
he traced the old road, noting its junc-
tion with a later one both above and
below the dam. While he was satis-
fied that this avalanche of earth might
have buried the lost train, he had no
hope that he would be able to, nd any
vestige of man, beast or wagon with:
out employing a host of meu to re-
move the earth from the old road, a
part of which was now covered with
water. But he could tell Elizabeth of
his find and assure her of his belief
that the wagon train had been buried'
under the landslide.
He argued that if those connected
with the train had seen the mountain
side coming they would run to get out
of its wa.. If they were nearer the
upper side of It they would run for-
ward: If nearer the lower side they
would r-uu backward. The upper side
now being a lake, it could not be ex-
amined. Merryweather rode down to
where the old road. striking the dam.
was deflected, to climb it by a gradual
Incline. DIsmonnting. he tied his
horse to a sapling and began to look
about thlm.
He snrtched a good while, bending
down close to the earth that he might
the better see anything unusuaL His
search was fruitless. Mounting, be

all lnght and in fbe morning bring
something to dig with. That night it
rained and the next day and the next

Merryweather. taking a pick and a

He found that the ruin had washed
away portions of the dam. and Its side
was covered with little gullies, some of
them quite-deep. He examined a num-

The news that the lost wagon train
had been found spread. Merryweather
hired half a dozen men to excavate,
but so great was the interest among
t'e people that many of them dug
on their own account, some doubtless
hoping to find articles of value. It
was apparent that the train had been
turned suddenly and beaded down the
canyon. Some of the wagons had
not been completely reversed before
they were buried.
Among the articles recovered was
an Iron box. Merryweatbor took pos-.
session of it. opened it and found that
it belonged to Edward Earle. It con-
tained several hundred dollars in
gold and a number of papers.
Some of the papers were deeds to

caravan was going-a region where
gold had then been recently discov-
ered. Merryweather. after the ex-
cavations were concluded, rode on
to what had been the destination of

Picking a Hors.e

"Give me a free hand and I should
pick a roan-that la, for good temper
and quick learning. Dark grays and

eral rule, light chestnuts and light
bays are nervous and delicate. A rusty

know the old saying, 'One white leg's
a bad un, two white les you my sell
to a friend, three white legs you may
trust for a time, four white lega you
may lay your life on.'
This does not agree with an old an-
kee saying:
One white toot. buy him;
Two white feet, try him;
Three white feet, look well about him;
'our white feet. go on without him.
Now, however, the American Idea is,
similar to that of the sergeant, and

of a carpenter who applied very drunk

skill by hewing out a wooden bolt with

carpenter accomplished his difficult

a neatly made bolt. Then he brought

battered Its edge upon the stone. ,"l1

The Festive Codfish.
A correspondent of the New York
Post says that the codfish frequents
"the tablelands of the sea." The cod-
fish no doubt does this to secure as
nearly as possible a dry, bracing at-
mosphere. This pure air of the sub-
marine tablelands gives to the codfish
that breadth of chest and depth of
lungs that we have so often noticed.
The glad. free smile of the codfish is
largely attributed to the exhilaration
of this oceanic altitoodleum. The cor-
respondent further says that the "cod-
fish subsists largely on the sea cherry."
Those who have not had the pleasure
of seeing the codfish climb the cherry
tree in search of food or clubbing the
fruit from the heavily laden branches
with chunks of coral have missed a
very fine sight The codfish when at
home rambling through the submarine
forests does not wear his vest unbut-
toned as be does while loafing around

Not Tending to Business.
A country doctor was recently called
"u to visit a ptlent sone way
roum his office. DIrivhw to where the
81sk laun lived. he tied his horse to a
tree nt front of the house and started
to walk saross the ground. It hip-
pened that wtrk wads in progress on a
new well. of whirh the doctor knew
nothing until he found himself sink-
ing Into the earth. He fell ju:4t far
enough to bel unable to get out of the
hole unassisted ai.d lustily yelled for
When he was finally pulled Lp the
hired man retnarked to him:
"I say. doe. yon had no business
down there."
"No; I don't rhiuk I had." replied
the doctor.
'"Don't you know," continued the
hired man. "you ought leave the well
alone and take care of the sick?"-
Inherited Dreams.
A medical scienutit claims. that many
dreamnis re really hereditary-that is
to say. they come down to us from au-
cestors. Mauy perouon have a dream
which they drtinl .vetr Uai'd over
again. This and soine ot!wrs that are
frequent. according to the authority
referred to, are inherited. The doctor
observed. for instaucre that a child of
six years after an attack of typhoid
fever saw in its slutihwr a figure clad
in black, v.bhi'h advanced to the foot
of the bed and Htivd upou him its
shini:in e. ,es. It was fouild that the
father of the child had frequently
dreamed that dreat, although he had
never mentioned it to his child. The
grandfather ore niied the same dream,
although he had told no cue about It.

Stops Hair


Ayer's Hair Vigor, new im-
proved formula, will certainly
stop falling of the hair. Indeed,
we believe it will always do this
unless there is some disturb-
ance of the general health.
Then,a constitutionalmedicine
may be necessary. Consult
your physician about this.

The reason why Ayer's Hair Vigor stops
falling hair is because it first destroys the
germs which cause this trouble. After
this is done, nature soon brings about
full recovery, restoring the hair and
scalp to a perfectly healthy condition.

A Bill Nye Story.
According to the Bookman, Bill Nye
once made a short speech at an au-
I ors' dinner lu Loudon that was
muuch relished by the bskmuen pres-
ent, Including the plulisliheri, at whom
It was lnllrectly aimed.
"Just a year ago," stild Nye. "I was
walking on the principal street of In-
dianapolis when I-.imet a man whose
appearamue showed that he was re-
duced to the very depths of poverty.
Blis clothes were ragged, his face un-
shaven, his hair long and matted and
his feet unshod. As I passed him a
Abok of recognition came into his eye.
."'Nye, old fellow, don't you know
me? Don't you know Abel P. Jones,
who was your classmate at college
"'What, Jones! Is it really you?
Well, well! What can I do for your
"'For heaven's sake, help me. I am
starving. Lend me half a dollar.'
"I felt in my pockets. They, were
empty. I had no money myself. But
a bright thought flashed through my
"'Abel, I can't lend you the half
dollar. I haven't got it. But, look
here, I'll tell you what I will do-I'll
let you publish my next book.'
"Gentlemen, that was just a year
ago, and this month Abel P. Jones
sent me an invitation to go to Europe
with him' aI his steam yacht."

Needed an Explanation.
A little boy was often whipped by
his father for lying. He usually took
It as a matter of course, but on one oc-
tauion It seemed to excite him to re-
Iecetiou. After it was all over he stood
Ix-fore his father in a thoughtful way,
which attracted that worthy's atten-
"My son." said the father. "what are
P*r thinking atoutT'"
fatherr, said the sou, "when you
-was a little boy, did you use to tell
"No, my son. When I was a little
boy I did nout tell lies."
"Father," returned the son. "when
motben was a little girl, did she use
tba tea u ,
"Not my son." replied the father.
"When your mother was a little girl
sbe did net tell lies. But why do you
ask. me these- questoiaa?"
"Well," said thi little fellow, draw-
abg a long sigh, "it is the most mys-
terious thing in the world to me that
a father who* never told lies when he
was a little boy and a mother who
auver ttk lies when she was a little
girl could have a boy that tells as
iany as I do."

Locked In With a irvin._
The writer wis once closeted with. a
patient whom he had no .'susplclou of
being mad unTil the latter got out of
bPd, turned the key of the door and
prefeirrd a mild request to the writer
to have his throat itut. handing him at
the same time an op'e pocketknife.
wbhlh he produced from underneath
his pillow. I objected to the ukife as
being too small for the purpose and
begged to be allowed to go for my case
of amputating knives, with which,. I
explained, the operation could be per-
formed with greater neatness and dis-
patch. He unlocked the door at once.
binding me over to secrecy and urging
me to lose no time In returning. I
drove home. reported the case to the
authorities and came back with as-
sistance. He was secured with great
difficulty end sent to the asylum.--

The Woman In Russia.
"Love your wife like your soul and
beat her like your carpet." This"is a
Russian proverb. Another of thesame
spirit, "Not long hurt the bumps from
a loved one's thumps." Wives have
undoubtedly been subjected to much
ill treatment in Russia, where most
husbands have always held to the
opinion that "liberty spoils a good
wife." Some Russian proverbs are
cynical as to the delights of matri-
mony, and most married men know
how to say, "Wed once, wail always."
The Experiment Failed.
When a small boy mentioned in
Short Stories grows up the scientific
curiosity he dioplayed may be a valu-
able possession. Meanwhile his moth-
or objects to it.
"Ma." remarked the boy, "isn't it
funny that everybody calls little broth-
er a bouncing baby?"
"Why do you think It's funny, Wil-
liamr' asked his mother.
"Because when I dropped him off
the porch this morning he didn't
bounce a bit; je just hollered."

How Toucans Roost.
Nothing could be more eccentric to
our eyes than the way in which ton-
cans go to roost. The bird does not
'tuck its head under its wing, poor
thing!" and so settle down, but packs
Itself up in most orderly fashion. The
tail is turned forward over the back,
hi the soft feathers of which the gi-
gantic bill is hidden. Then the tail
shuts down, all semblance of a bird is
lost, and one can see nothing but a
ball of feathers.-London Standard.

Have You Diplopia?
Diplopla, as its name signifies, is the
defect which causes the eye to see two
Images of the same object. Of course
the drunkard's temporary diplopia is
well known, but it Is possible for a
quite sober person to perceive two key-
holes instead of one, as the comic jour-
nals have it, and yet be a total ab-
stainer. Diplopfa Is usually the result
of squint or general eye weakness and
is necessarily a distressing malady. AP
a rule, the defect manifests itself in
regard to small objects at some dis-
tance-etgbt feet or so. For Instance.
one lamp will be eeen slightly above
another or to right or left. As a rule,
the false image Is fainter than the
genuine one, but when I looked through
tlw prism, which made me for the time
being diploptic, I saw the second Image
quite as clearly as the first, but with
a tendency to wander. The farther
away the false Image appears from the
true the less distinct is Its outline.-
Strand Mungaziue.

Why Cuvier Wore a Beard.
"To save thne is to lengthen life" is
a proverb found In one form or an-
other in almost every language, and
Cuvier, the great naturalist, found life
all too short to accomplish all he
wished to do, though-most economical
of the hours.
"I found," he sold, "that my shaving
took me a quarter of an hour a day.
This makes aven and a half hours In
a month and ninety hours, or three
days and eighteen ours. very nearly
four days, a year. This discovery stag-
gered me. IIere wa" I complaining
that time was too short, that the years
flew by too swiftly, that I had not
hours enough for work, and In the
midst of my complilniig I was wast-
ing nearly four days a year in lather-
Ing my face with a shaving brush, and
I resolved thebneforth to let my beard
grow."--Omaha World-Uer Ild.

A Story of Mark Twain.
When Mark Twain was beginning
his career as a hunor'oui lecturer he
one day arranged with a woman ac-
quaintance that she should sit in a box
and start the applau.-- when he should
stroke his mustache. The lecturer
started off so well that he did not need
any such help, however, for be caught
the audience from the first. By and
by, when uot saying anything worthy
of particular notico, he happened to
pull his mustach.e and his anxious
ally in the box at once broke into furi-
ous applause. Mark was all but bro-
ken up by the misadventure and ever

before I saw plainly that Mrs. Welles-
ley was completely under her thumb.
This added to my chagrin. Another
had stepped in between me and the
fortune I had been brought up to ex-
pect would be mine, and I was not
even at liberty to deal directly with
that person.
Having discovered where the power
lay, there was nothing for me to do
but endeavor to gain such points as I
wished to make through its possessor.
I invited Miss Dorchester to a cotnfer-
ence, in which 1 played my best card
in an attempt to induce her to per-
suade her mistress to fulfill her prom-
ise, allow me a stated income and per-
mit me to live abroad.
"Mrs. Wellesley," she said in reply
to this proposition, "would not 'have
been intrusted with this matter were
it not that she was to be implicitly
trusted with carrying It out. Your
grandfather's object was to make a
man of one who was wasting his tal-
ents in globe trotting."
While I was disappointed, I was Im-
pressed. Even this girl, whom I had
begun by disliking, saw that I was not
worthy to be trusted with a fortune-a
fortune of which she herself held the
real management.
I spent some time at my grafiamiotn-
er's endeavoring to bring her to some
terms She declined all my proposals,
adhering to her late husband's inten-
tions. She would fulfill her promise
and would not consent to any subter-
fuge to ge; around it. A month passed,
and I was about to give it all up and
go away when Mrs. Wellesley herself
came to me with a proposition.
"I sympathize with you heartily,"
she said. "in being obliged to give up
a fortune or take with it aa old wo-

I was in Switzerland and about to
climb the Jungfran when a bundle of
letters and newspapers were handed
me. While waiting for'my guides I
tore open the wrapper of the papers
and, scanning one of the journals, no-
ticed a marked item stating that my
grandfather. Sherman Wellesley. aged
eighty-five. had married and died the
same day.
In a twinkling I was deposed from a
position of heir expectant to a great
fortune to-- did not know what. My
grandfather bad bitterly opposed my
propensity to travel and especially to
climb mountains. I wan his only de-
scendant, and he had long endonvoredi
to lnuance nme to settle dowu to the onre
of the millions whk'b he had wliled
me. le lived In constant terror lest I
should make a slip on one of my
climbs, go several thousand feet down'
over a precipice and the fortune that
had been accumulating during uiM life
time would go a-begging. In other
words, It must be left to charity.
His intention in marrying was plain
to me. He could not have an heir
(other than myself)., ut he could have
a wife. He had doubtless lost all pa-
tience with me and at the last moment
married some woman who, would sup-
ply my place as an heir.
I hesitated what to do, but, looking
up at the glittering top of the white
mountain, forgot for the time all about
the fortune I had lost, and, my guides
being ready. I started on what proved
my last ascent. On returning to my
starting point, Interlaken. I left for
home. As soon as I landed I wrote my
new grandmother asking for Informa-
tion as to her husband's disposition of
the property. By return mall I receiv-
ed this reply:
Your grandfather, being taken suddenly
til, concluded to destroy the will leaving
you his sole heir, not having confidence
that you would settle down and attend to
the property. Having but an hour or two
to live, there was no time to make a de-
tailed will. His brain, always quick to
work, solved the problem in this wise:
Having great confidence In me. be flar-
ried me on his deathbed and signed a
will comprised in a few words leaving me
all his property. He, however, exacted a
promise from me that if you desired to
marry me I would take you for a bus-
Phew! Marry my grandmother!
Well. all depended upon what kind
of a woman she was A hope sprang
up in my breast that she might be of a
suitable age for me and passably good
looking. I wrote her that I would run
up for a conference and politely as
sured her that if she was pot favora-
bly impressed with we I w,'.ild release
her from the verbal condition by de-
clining to marry her. This. I flattered
myself, was a very foxy way of put-
ting it. my real object being to decline
to take a wife with a fortune if I
didn't like her.
1 was doomed to a terrible disap-
pointment. I found my grandmother
a veritable grandmother. She was six-
ty-five years old, fat, bald and not a
tooth in her bead that was her own
I curs myself for a fool to have de-
clined to comply with my grandfa-
ther's wishes during his life, for now
that the blow had fallen I realized my
folly. It was evident that to save tht
fortune I must marry an old woman.
and even then she would own the
property till her death, and I should
have to ask her for every penny I
, Having taken sufficient time to make
up my mind what course to pursue, 1
sounded her as to whether I could
marry her, take an allowance and
spend my time anywhere but with her.
She said she would think it over, and
I had hope. But the next day I was
informed that such a course would not
be carrying out her late husband's
wishes. He had desired that I should
take care of the property.
The medium through whom I receiv-
ed this answer was Agnes Dorchester.

woman not quite my age. Indeed. I

If she will have you and you will
have her I will make a will leaving
my property to you both jointly, giv-

"But I don't know that I like Miss
Dorchester." 1 exclaimed, taken aback
at this offer. Then after a pause,
"Will she consent to the plan?"
"That is for you to tind out"
I had no hope that Miss Dorchester
would marry me simply to gain a for-
tune, and in any event I should have
to live with her and carry out my
grandfather's wishes. But anything
rather than beggary. 1 went to the
young lady, told her of Mrs. Welles-
ley's proposition and asked her to be
my wife.
What did she do but toes her nose in
the air and decline to have anything
to do with such a proposition..
I left her furious. She would rather
give up a fortune than be my wife.
I spent the next twenty-four hours
in inventing imaginary 'ways of tortur-
ing her. The upstart!
Wi all know that a woman scorned
becomes a fury. There is no such
adage about a man, but there should
be. "A man scorned Is soou conquer-
ed." I resolved that I would make
Miss Dorchester love me, then toss her
aside as a wax doll.
In a few weeks I had softened her
so far as to recerie a proposition from
"I cannot bear." she said, "to stand
between you and a fortune. I feel that
it will be impossible for Mrs. Welles-
ley to carry out your grandfather's in-
tentions toward'you. I will agree to
her proposition to marry you provided
you will prominee to go away and not
trouble rue."
I biad secured terms that in the be-
gir.rlu4 I would iuve considered very
acceptable. But what did 1 consider
them now? Au insult.
"Are you aware." I said, the color
rising to my cheek and a srink, giitter-
ing ib my eye. "that you are by no
means flattering "
"But 1 sutpos d what you wish tI

The evening before the wedding.
'hen I was a hundred miles from my
intended bride, I was thrown into a
wild state by the receipt of the follow-
ing telegram;
You must marry your grandmother, att-
ar all, or lose your fortune. AGNES.
What new complication could have
arisen? Why could not those lawyers
be certain of anything? I had become
violently in love with Miss Dorchester
and would not in any event give her
up. I replied:
Grandmother be hanged! I will marry
you tomorrow.
I could not get a train till early the
next day, but after a sleepless night
at 5 a. m. was steaming toward my

Baths In Finland.
One of the greatest trials a visitor in
Finland has to endure is a Finnish
bath. The method of procedure is
unique. Divested of outer clothing
and attired in a light and airy cot-
ton garment, you are slung in a sort
of hammock composed of cord above
a large receptacle like the boilers in
public laundries. This is almost filled
with cold water, into which at the
right moment is flung a large redihot
brick or piece of iron, which of course
causes an overwhelming rush of steam
to ascend and almost choke you.
Then when that process has gone on
sufficiently long you are shaken out
of your hammock, immersed nl cold
water, and after very drastic treat-
ment you resume your raiment, sad-
der and wiser than before your novel

The Wall Street Game.
The burning question on Wall street
Is always whether stocks will go up or
down. If any man were able to an-
swer it correct he could nmake him-
self a millionaire int a day. but specu-
lation is neither a fortune telling nor a
gambling gane. and the man who be-
lieves otherwise is bound to lose his
money and to join the ranks of the dis-
consolate, disgusted and depleted who
make the outcry against the evils of
Wall street, says Tesie's Weekly.
The winner In Wail street Is gifted
with the same butluess characteristics
that bring success in any line of enter-
prise. iHe utilizes them in buying sud
selling stocks, just as he would If be
