Unexpected Inheritance of $15,000,000 by

Philadelphia, Nov. 14. A remarka
ble romance in real life has come to life,
by the sudden and unexpected inherit
ancejof a fortune of $15,000,000 by the
25-year-old daughter of a poor gardener,
"William Kelly. Tho legacy comes from
the estate of a long dead uncle, Peter
Kelly, who amasseda vast fortune in
the Australian gold fields over 30 years
ago. Peter Kelly was living with his
parents in Lancashire, England, when
the Australian ygld craze broke out and
he went to that land to make his for
tune. Nothing was "heard of him until
nearly a quarter of a century ago, when
his mother received word that he would
soon retnrn home a millionaire. He did
not come, however. Inquiry was begun
and the son's story of his millions was
verified, part of tho money being in
Australian banks. Tho family received
the interest on l'he fortune," which was
valued at $15,000,000. Some time ago
Kelly learned of tho existence of a will
in which all of the estate was bequeathed.
to his eldest child, Elizabeth. At that
time he made no effort to secure it. Two
years ago he engaged an attorney, who
has declared that the enormous legacy

years been obliged to pay a tax which
he considered out of all reason. Not
only that, but ho knew thatforthe next
ten years the tax would be steadily in
creased. He had on several occasions
evaded it by engaging himself to Borne
attractive maiden, then, when tho dan
ger of taxation "was past for that year,
causing a quarrel which resulted in his
dismissal, but the authorities had be
come suspicious, and Tom had reason
to believe that another such event would
be closoly investigated. Clearly he must
find some new and yet plausible way to
evade tho tax on bachelors this year or
deprive himself of many luxuries which
he was sure he could not lo without.
Down at his clubhouse his friends
were entertaining a guest from abroad,
"and Tom ought to havo shed the light
of his cheerful smile on tho scene. He
knew very well that tho fellows never
enjoyed themselves quite so well when
he was absent, but ho felt in no mood
for merrymaking tonight. He donned
dressing-gown and slippers, set a box of
choice cigars on the table, which he push
ed close beshle the open grato; then,
throwing himself into his most inviting
easy chair, gave himself to the problem
which confronted him. Ho had thought
of no feasible solution whon, the guest,
from abroad haying been sufficiently
entertained, Tom was joined by Sander
Ridgway, his most intimate club friend,
"What's up, old fellow?" asked
Sander, helping himself to an easy
chair aud a cigar. "We missed you at
"I was too stupid to make a decent
appearance, so preferred to remain at
home. Have a good time?"
"Tiptop! I wish you could have met
that fellow, Tom. What ails you, any
how? Yon look decidedly morbid. "
"I feel morbid. Business has been
dull the past year, aud it is almost time .
for that confounded matrimonial tax."
"You must have a big one to pay to
make you look like this."
"It was $5,000 last year, and it will
be heavier this. Confound such a law,
anyhow ! I believe it would be better to
"let women scratch for themselves, as
they used to do in the good old days of
our grandm.oth ers. ' '
"Oh, I don't know about that!
Women's work cheapens labor, you
know. That fs one renson why the mat
rimonial tax becamo a law. And, after
all, you would not like to see women
obliged to care for themselves. It would
look very bad for tho men. "
"I know it, Sander. I presume I'm
selfish, but, really, this tax is as hard
to pay as a doctor's bill."
"Then why don't you marry? You
could support a wife on $5,000 a year. "
"I have not yet seen any one who
was worth the price of my freedom.
No, thank you, Sander. I'd rather pay
the money and live alone. But I don't
see just where the money is to come
from. There's the rub. I shall be oblig
ed to take a cheaper room, discharge my
valet, take meals at a. second class res
taurant and smoko 5 centers. "
"That's where the law gets in its
vork, my boy. By a steadily increasing
pressure of self denial it-hopes"
"It is ontrageous !"
"It gives you a choice. For my part
I prefer matrimony. "
"Is that a fact?" u.
"It is." .
"Who is the young lady?"
"Miss Alice Griggs. "
"O-ii-h-h! Ahem! Is that is that
why she refused me?' '
"I presume it had something to do
with it. my boy.. She is a very sensible
young lady.1 ' -
"Tastes differ. However, I think she
I congratulate yen, Sander. You
know, of course, that there was no seri
ous lovemaking between us."
"To be sure. Alice said she suspected
that you were fishing for a refusal, and
so she accommodated .yous"
"I wish I had not given her the op
portunity to accommodate me quite so
early in the season. It might have
helped me out o this difficulty had I
been less premature with my proposal."
Tom did. not choose to have it known
that lie had been so carried away by the
charms of the lovely Alice that he had
proposed without- a thouglrt of the con
sequences. It was a mistake which he
did not make very often. He almost en
vied Sander, but he did not propose to
havo that known either. He was glad
now that Alico had believed his love-
Hiaking to have been for the purpose of
securing a refusal, yet he could not help
wondering whether it would have made
any differenco had riio been undeceived.
It was something he should never
know, for h6 did not cac to have the
wife of another know that she came
nearer to his heart than any lady whom

Sander startled his friend by springing
to his feet with a most exultant shout.
"I have it!" he said. "Tom, I can
help you out of this scrape like magic.
I know the very girl. "
"You do? Old boy, if you help me
now, I'll never forget it."
"I have a cousin" -

"No; she livesjin the country."

"Sho has an awful temper."

Tom wrote the letter, as his friend
had suggested, sealed it carefully, ad
dressed it to Miss Margaret Blake and
gave it to Sander to deliver. Sander in
closed it in one giving full particulars,
and an duo time Tom received the fol
lowing reply .
Mr. Tom Wainwright:

you, vrhich ho "was so good as to send with the
proposal. In reply, I will say that I agreo to

what exacting in regard, to the hehavior of en
gaged people, and I shall try to so conduct
myself that wo may not bo commented upon.
I can: sec that you would prefer not to have it
known that wo are engaged simply for con
venience. It will please me to havo a desirable
escort during my stay in town, and Cousin
Sander assures me that I shall find you simply
perfect. I wonder what he has told you about
me. That I have an abominable temper, I
presume. He considers that my chief charac

with the thought that, so far as I know, it is

Tom found this letter quite satisfac

when he was to see Miss Margaret, or
Daisy, as her cousin called her and as
he liked to think of her. A number of
his best friends knew of his good for
