Her last one was that they had got
to her private box in a safety deposit
vault She was intent on getting to
it and removing her valuables and
carrying them around with her.
It was she who fiad written the note
to Dobyns. He looked chagrined,
Rose mischievous, as he turned the
automobile around, homeward bound.
By a strange perversity of circum
stance the capricious aunt, Miss Lovi
nia Parr, when she recovered in the
garden, had hurried to the bank and
had secured her valuables. Her mind
was relieved. She gazen admiringly
oh Dobyns when she heard the real
story of the incident of the hour.
"A worthy, chivalrous young man!"
she commended. "Old as I am, per
verse as they say I am, you tried to
serve me. My little fortune shall go
to Rose when she marries."
And it was only in the natural
course of events that thosetwoyoung
souls should come closer together,
until the bond of congenial matri

IF I WERE A PREACHER a right
ousness teacher, I'd say something
once in awhile that might stop my
wages or startle the sages, or make
the old grave-digger smile. I'd bawl
for a hearing for Dr. Scott Nearing,
I'd clamor for space for Doc Cook, I'd
say, "To the cellar with J. Rockefel
ler!" I'd call every robber a crook. I
wouldn't give anchor to any old bank
er who'd stolen his dough from the
poor. I'd call him a robber, a flabby
old jobber, and he wouldn't stay long,
I'm sure. No street car highwayman
who held up a layman and hanged
him to torturing straps could flop on
my henches his 32 inches without get
ting numerous raps. I wouldn't hold
on long? I'd soon sing my swan
song? Perhaps you have got the
right dope. But I'd raise the rafters
from over some grafters, and I'd raise
the devil, I hope. Charles B. Driscoll.
