1 But It Proved to Be $
I a Burden $
By REGINALD D. HERON
My lutervlow with ISdlth's father
was n stormy one. llo gnvo me to
understand that 1 could hnvo no
daughter of Ills; thnt If 1 persuaded
Kdlth to marry mo without his con
hunt ho would never recognize cither
of us any more than If wo were stran
gem to him, and thnt the results of
pur folly and Udlth's lngratltudo must
bo endured without uny nsslstnnco
whntover from him.
"What kind of a young man are
you," ho thundered, "for a gentleman
to glvo his daughter to' As poor as a
church mouse, you have come hero In
n hired carriage to see me."
"Yes," I retorted, "and I'll go away
In tho carriage In which I came."
"And I hope you'll stay away."
iVt' turned our hacks upon each oth
er, ho to go Into another room. I to
go out and get Into the cab. 1 saw
Edith at an upper window with n
pnlned expression on her face. Hho
kissed her linud to me, and I wnved
mine to her. Then I got Into the cab,
shut tho door with a bang and was
As It huppWd I sat down on tho
left side of tho carriage, whereas 1

was uneven, but 1 was too hot from
my recent Interview to uotlco It for
some time. - Presently without getting
my mind off tholattcr 1 endeavored to
nrrunge the former. The hump re
mained. I arose and lifted the cush
Ion. Thoro lay a package about seven
Inches long by three wide, the wrapper
beliuf brown paper. I was not so ab
sorbed In having been refused tbo
girl 1 loved but that 1 removed It and
revealed a package of bank bills. Tho
one on top was of tho denomination of
$100. Tho next wns $1,000. tho next
$500, and so on of mixed denomina

Hero was a ilnd-a big flnd-a deuced
hip find. It would be Impossible to
give the confusion of thoughts pass
ing 'hrough my mind. I had stumbled
upop the wherewithal to recoup.
Kdll'i would yet be mine. Would the
ownor of the bills turn up? What
would be the outcomo? These wore a
few of the flashes upon my brain, but
give only a faint picture of tho tur
moil there. I can ouly say In Justice
to myself that almost Instantly nil

was not mine and Its owner must ba
During tho uoxt few days 1 bought
every newspaper Issued Ju tho city
whero I lived and hud found tho bills,
not doubting thnt their loss would be
advertised. When the next morning
after I had found thorn I saw no uo
tlco of them I was surprised. When
on tho second morning no uotlco ap
peared I was astonished, and on the
third morning, having gone through
with n dozen nowspapers without find
lug what I looked for, I was amazed.
On tho morning of tho eighth day 1
received a telegram from my college
chum, Ilenry Uarker:
Coma at once. Tho position Is vacunl
and ennnot remain bo forty-oliiht hours.
This was In responso to n letter 1
hnd written a few days before to Uar
ker. who hud succeeded his father at
president of a largo manufacturing es
tabllshmcnt. asking him to glvo mo
'Job. I am not one to go back on jnj
proposition nnd began at onco m.v
hurried preparation to leave. Hui
what should l do with tho bills I lint'
found? Acting on tho prlnclplo "tin
least said the soonest mended," I had
kept the unit tor to myself and the
money under lock and key, 1 being the
only one who knew where, I iiiusl
net at once. 1 thought of depositing
the, bills In a Imuk. No; thnt wouldn't

following: l weiit to a safety doposl

In tho hurry of preparation I had nol

nnd asked "What nnme?" 1 gave bin

had not been prepared to fill. He sail
he knew 1 could learn tho duties ns '

mind was fixed on them to tho cxclu

I hud paid a year's rental for tho bos

So I was not troubled with any com
munlcntloiiH from tho company to ro
mind me of It.
To tell tho truth, I was more Inter
octod in Edith Ford than tn some one
cl.se's money which hnd fallen Into my
possession nnd which Instead of being
a blessing was a burden. Hnrker ad
vanced me rapidly.
Kdlth remained true to mc, and her
father, having been ngreeahly disap
pointed In mo, consented lo our mar
rlage. All was leinly for the nuptial
when one day n shabby man with a
hangdog look about him came Into
the olllco and asked to see mc.
"This Is Mr. George Wlnchell?" lie
"That's my naino."
He look a dirty paper from his pock
et. to which he referred, and said;
"On the 12(11 of November, 11)-, John
I'lynn, driving cab No. 58. took up a
fare at the door of the University club

"Never mind the rest of that." I
said. "Tell If you are looking for nny
thing that was lost."
The man nppeared III at ense. "Please
don't speak so loud. sir. If you nre the
man who was driven that day in that
cab from the University club to"
"I was, (So on."
"Von may have found a packago of
At this point the man hesitated, and,
seeing that he was not getting on with
his revelation. I took him to a private
room and said:
"Now, out with It."
After much trouble I learned thnt ho
had got the money 1 had found from
a gentleman to carry somewhere and
had hired a cab for the purpose. Not
daring to fake the bills out of tho cab
when ho allghfed, fearing nn arrest,
ho left It under tho seat, taking note of
tho cnb's number. Ho was arrested
for having stolen nn ovcrcont nnd wns
sent to prison for n year. IIo bad re
cently been dlschnrged, some tlmo hav
ing Itcen taken off his stay for good be
havior, and had communicated with
the man from whom he hnd got the
bills, nnd the two hnd set about trac
ing them. Tho person who had employ
ed tiltn to curry the money was a cash
ier of sotno Institution, from which he
had purloined It.
I had had enough of tho matter nnd
ngreed to a plan by which tho amount
could bo returned to Its rightful own
ers, they paying tho rascals a small
sum and guaranteeing their immunity
from prosecution. All tho details had
boon arranged when It occurred to me
thnt I had rented the box in which I
had deposited It in n fictitious name.
What nn!no7 I could np more re
member than I could repeat the book
As soon as I could get away front
my duties I took a train for my for
mer home nnd on nrrlvnl drove to the
safe deposit company and asked for
the custodian. A young man stepped
forward, and I asked for the old gen
tleman who had rented me a box about
a year before. IIo had died five months
ago nnd the young man had been put
lu his place.
My story ns to tho routing of the
box was told that I had not given
my own mime and had forgotten the
assumed one. I was Informed thnt 1
would llud tho number of tho box on
my key. but 1 replied thnt, hnvlng
been fearful of loslug tho key, I hnd
put It In a very safe place, but where
I hud also forgotten.
Then the custodian looked grave.
Tho money must remain where it was
till I produced the name or tho key.
What was 1 to do? 1 had acknowl
edged thnt 1 had found the lost hills
and still had them lu my posscsslou. I
wns bound to restore them, nnd If I
didn't 1 would bo Biicd for them and
likely prosecuted criminally, itelng
about to bo married, I was in an ag
ony or fear lest tho matter should
come out nnd bo printed in the news
papers ou tho ovo of my wedding,
I went to Hurker, who was more
llko n brother to mo than an employ
er, nud told him of tho fix I was In,
While he was ready to do anything for
mo in tils fiower, there seemod to be
nothing dellulto for him to do. lie
could not help showing a slight suspi
cion. This rovenled to mo that my
story was not very credible. 1 was in
agony. Meanwhile the parties con
cerned began to grow suspicious of
Then I wns told that If 1 didn't
pny over tho monoy at onco I would
bo arrested. I realized that 1 must
ralso $50,000 or go to jail, besides
losing Kdlth. I asked how long a time
I would bo given for tho purposo nud
wns told that I could huvo n week. I
laid tho matter before Harker, and tils
nffectlon for mo couquored his doubts
and his Indisposition to pay out for
mu $50,000 that ho might nover get
back. IIo drew nVcheck for tlio money,
payable- to mo, and 1 turned it over to
the persons who wero hounding me,
Hut I realized that u wedge had been
Introduced between mo and Harker
that would not bo removed until I
could return tho monoy ho had put up
A fow days boforo tho wedding I
went on a visit to Kdlth to confess to
her tho Incubus resting upon me. I
told her tho story, to which bIio listen
ed eagerly nud, when I had finished,
"I wonder if what I have upstairs
that you sent mo long ago has any
thing to do with the mnttor."
"What did I send you 7"
lustead of replying she left mo and
In a few minutes returned with a box
of trinkets, through which sho began
to hunt. Thero wero bits of old Jew
elry and odds and ends of nil kinds.
Presently sho took out a little flat bit
of metal with Irregular teeth on one
side. I made a dive for It, and, hold
ing It up, I saw stumped ou It the
number .'100. Thou, like n flush, I ro
mombered having sent a duplicate key
of my nnfo deposit box I hud been
given two-to Kdlth to keep for me lu

Too Muoh For Webster,

Mrs. Dodgen's will, which was tried in
the supremo court many years ago,
Daniel Webster' appeared as counselor
for tho appellant Mrs. arcenough,
wlfo of tho Itev. William Grecnoiigh,

Notwithstanding Mr. Webster's repeat
ed efforts to disconcert tier, sho pur
sued the oven tenor of her .rr.y until
Webster, becoming quite fearful of tho
result, arose, apparently In great agi
tation, nnd, drawing out his Inrgo
snuffbox, thrust ills thumb nud finger
to tho very bottom nnd, cnrrylng n
deep filnch to both nostrils, drew It up
with gusto, and then, extracting from
his pocket n very largo handkerchief,
he blow Ills noso with a report that
rang distinct nnd loud through the
IIo then asked, "Mrs. Greouough,
wns Mrs. Bodgen n nent woman?"
"I cannot glvo you full Information
ns to that, sir. She had one very dirty
trick," replied tho witness.
"What was thnt, ma'am?"
"Sho took snuff!"
Resting on His Laurels.
An undertaker was discussing quoor

in his house a. costly nnd beautiful urn.
Ho purposed to bo cremated, nnd Ills

urn was that It contained a little lied
