From the cape rises the highest rolling

two long bands of velvet, about four inches
wide, are fastened to the collar in front and
fall loosely therefrom to the cronnd. First,
however, the velvet is turned over at the
top several inches before it is gathered to
the collar, so that it forms a little jabot.
The outside edges, the bottom and the top

Chicago, Dec. 15. An envelope con
taining the.ardent love missives alleged to
have been written by Edward Plows, the
confectioner, to the wife of his friend, Mr.
Christian, which the latter expected to use
effectively in his suit for 550,000 damages
against the manufacturer of sweetmeats,
was to-day stolen from the office of Attor

young man under the guise of a reporter.
The pilferer visited the attorney's office
Tuesday and made an Appointment to come
again, and, in his alleged capacity of news
paper man, imike a copy of each letter in
the bundle. The papers were duly turned
over to the "reporter" as promised.
It is supposed he intended to leave the
attorney's office at noon, expecting that the
latter would go out for luncheon. Mr.
Wilier, however, remained at his desk un
til 2 o'clock, and by that time the aman
uensis had no further excuse for remain

and walked over "to Mr. Willet with the
envelope. As he reached it out, his hand
trembled, and Mr. Willet said, sharply,
"Are all the letters here?" "Oh, yes," re
sponded the fellow, moving toward the
door. The moment he reached the threshold
he broke into a run. Mr. Willet hurriedly
glanced at the envelope, saw the letters had
been replaced by worthless papers and im
mediately followed, but the culprit had

"Listen to me?" ejaculated the 'Squire.
"Not be. Besides, I know perfectly well
what would be the result. He would meet
my .arguments with some of his Itenublicnn
sentiments and I should lose my temper and
make a fool of nivself."

who, childless as they were, quite looked
upon her as their daughter.
As lor the 'Squire, he was perfectly help
less without her, and Miss Gladys was his
constant companion wherever he went.
He declared she was a better judge of
stock than his bailifi himself, and as for her
knowledge of horseflesh, who was there
about the place who could compete'with
her? And bow she rode, too! Many and
many a time, when accompanying his niece
in her rides, did her uncle regret that his
salad days were over, and that he was no'
longer able to pilot her over this place and
that instead of looking on from the broad
back of his favorite cob, while she larked
about at her own free will, for she was un
commonly fond of riding over a country,
was Miss Gladys.
As her groom said, "The fence was never
made yet that could stop his young lady
when the hounds were running."
True to his promise, alter breakfast the
'Squire unbosomed himself to his niece
with regard to his refractory tenant at the
Lea Farm "the only farm, by the way, my
dear," he added, "where I hare not intro

laughing, putting her pretty hand over his
mouth as she spoke.
"And his name is Wilder?" she con
tinued, "and I knew such a dear old .man'
ot that name years ago he was one of poor

The 'Squire, who had been waiting for her
for the last half hour, seized a hat and
rushed hastily out into the utable yard,
where he knew she would dismount, to
await her coming with mingled feelings of
delight at her return and curiosity to know
how she had succeeded on her mission of
diplomaoy with his refractory tenant.
"Here I am, uncle, safe and sound, you
see, and I've had, oh! such a lark! Brill
iant's legs are fall of thorns, I fear, poor
dear," exclaimed happy Gladys, her face
flushed with pleasure and excitement, and
looking prettier than ever.

ministered her usual hug she took her

themselves in the entrance hall.

sure silence. . .
"What should you say if, paying a visri

her uncle. "But you don't mean to say it's
a fact, Gladys, that you have actually got

"Indeed I do, uncle, and he's not a bear

Fortune lias smiled on Clara Dubois,
who has an interesting history. When 5
years old lier father died and her mother
placed her in an Orphans' Home in this
city. She was adopted a year later by Dr.
A. D. Simonds, of Etna, whose family name
she assumed. Her real mother subsequently
married Girard Webb and tried to find
traces of her child, but it was against the
rules of the orphanage to furnish a clue to
the girl's whereabouts. Sho mou-ned the
child as dead and expected never to see her
A week ago a beautiful lady stranger
stepped from an in-bound train, and, with
the aid of the police, sought out Mrs. Webb.
It proved to be a Ions lost daughter, no-r a
girl of 10. It now transpires that Clara is
heiress to Sl8,000lwhich she receives when
she becomes ot age. Her foster lather died
ten vears ago. Mrs. Simonds died several
years later, leaving a will bequeathing to
Clara her entire fortune. Miss Dubois only
recently learned that she was an adopted
child, but she immediately began a search
for her mother and -finally located her in
this city. The meeting between the two
was extremely affecting.
