Michael parcy 3 s Heiress-
"Now for it," I said to myself as I
undid the twine binding my precious
volumes together, and prepared to ex
amine them more carefully than I had
had time to do Bince I unearthed them
from the little dark, second-hand book
Bhop that afternoon. There was noth
ing remarkable about them; no rare
editions of well-known classics; no
long-forgotten books, valuable from
their very obscurity; merely a few
bound volumes of old magazines, and
a couple of the novels which had de
lighted mo as a boy, and which from
old association were more precious in
their original type and polished leath
er binding than in the spruce modern
editions. Best of all was a copy of
Dickens' "Master Humphrey's Clock,"
with the wood cuts that cannot now
be reproduced. As 1 turned them over
I became a boy again, sitting in the
old apple tree at the end of the gar
den at home, devouring the thin, pa
pei'-covered installments of the stories;
laughing and sometimes crying over
them, as the present day schoolboys,
■well crammed and carefully examined
students of literature as they are, are
too critical to do. I adjusted my read-
Ing lamp, drew my chair closer to the
fire, and, forgetting alike the cup of
coffee at my side and the patient
whose unusual symptoms had worried
me all day. I lost myself in the com
pany of Xell and grandfather, Mrs.
Jarley, Miss Brass and the marchion
ess, seeing them with the boy's eyes
and adding to the pen and pencil
sketches a roundness and completeness
of detail drawn from my Imagination
of fifty years ago and utterly lacking
to my reading of later life.
When I had gone more than half
through the second volume, I came
upon a large sheet of thin paper, cov
ered with neat, cramped writing. I
took it out and looked at it. A mo
ment's Inspection showed me that it
was a will, written throughout in the
handwriting of the testator, Michael
Darcy, and dated two years before. It
left interest In the farm of Carrig
nalea, with stock and implements, to
testator's brother, Patrick Darcy.who
was also named residuary legatee,
while the sum of £3,000 in railway stock
and other investments was bequeathed
to "my late wife's niece, Anastasia
Ffrench." It was, as far as I could
judge, and I have had some experience
in matters of the kind, properly exe
cuted, signed and witnessed.
It was odd to find an important doc
ument of this sort hidden away be
tween the leaves of a book. Had Pat
rick Darcy and Anastasia Pfrench
been left without their Inheritance in
consequence, I wondered. And a pic
ture rose up in my mind of a helpless
elderly woman ending her days in pov
erty, because the paper which would
have secured her independence was
not to be found. *
What an old fool I was, to be sure!
For all I knew Michael Darcy might
be still alive and live to make half a
dozen fresh wills. Or, even if he were
dead, the chances were that this was
an old will, revoked by the existence
of a later one, and of no more account
than any other slip of paper used to
mark a book. Why had I not thought
of so obvious an explanation before?
I would make some inquiries about
the matter the next day, however; It
would be easy to find out all about
Michael Darcy, of Carrignalea. Mean
time, the will could remain between
the leaves of "Master Humphrey's
But the morrow found me flying
along by express train to the bedside
' of my only son, who had met with a
dangerous accident. And for many
weeks I could think of nothing but
him, and of the best means of snatch
ing him from the extended arms of
death. And when by God's mercy
he was once more as safe from those
clutches as any of us can ever be,
Michael Dairy, his will, heirs and ex
ecutors, had faded out of my mind
as completely as if they had never
entered it. and the will was resting
undisturbed in its hiding place among
Some twelve months later I went in
the regular course of my practice to
■visit an old friend, who was suffering
from an acute attack of pneumonia,
She was an elderly lady, living some
two or three miles outside the city.
Her servants were faithful and attaeh
rd. but in the absence of relatives I
tin, ught it better to insist on the ser
vices of a trained nurse. I therefore
gave Mrs. Power's maid a note addres-
M(l to the matron of a nursing in
stitution in the city, asking her to
Bend me. if possible, one of two nurses
whom T named; or, if this was out of
her power, to send some one on whom
she could thoroughly rely. On my
return next morning I found, not in
deed one of my old friends, but a
bright, capable-looking young woman,
whose manner of answ-ering my ques
tions and taking my directions im
pressed me favorably. She told me
that she had not long returned from
her course of training in one of the
London hospitals, and that this was
the first serious case of which she
had had sole charge.
As the case, though serious enough,
was a simple one, I had no hesitation
In leaving the nursing of it in her
hands and a few days' observation
showed me that even had it been far
more complicated I should have been
fully justified in so doing. She was
an excellent nurse, alert and watchful,
knowing exactly what to do and do
ing it with the quiet ease that comes
of long practice. As the patient grew
better and I had time to notice less
important details I perceived that Sis-

ter Anna besides being an excellent
nurse, was a very attractive young
woman. She had pretty brown hair
with golden lights in it, waving and
rippling all over a well-shaped, well
set head; her eyes were dark brown
and her complexion, though pale, clear
and healthy looking. She was fairly
tall and very well built, with a look of
strength and vitality pleasant to see.
Her voice was low-toned and pleasant,
while her choice of words and manner
of speaking showed her to be an ed
ucated woman. Mrs. Power was de
lighted with her and spoke much of
the pleasure she felt in having so In
telligent and sympathetic a companion.
Altogether I thought I had reason to
congratulate myself and my profes
sional brethren on the addition to the
nursing staff at our disposal.
Late one October afternoon, after a
hard day's work, I drove down to Lis
fallan to visit my patient, whom I
had not seen for two or three days.
I found Mrs. Power alone in the little
morning room where she usually sat,
although Sister Anna's knitting basket
and web of crimson fleece gave token
of her recent presence.
"Where is the sister?" I asked, dur
ing a pause In the gossip with my old
friend which succeeded our brief pro
"Look out of the window," was the
reply. I went over to the deep bay
window, which formed one end of the
rcom, and looking across the long gar
den, stretching behind the house, be
held Sister Anna, her prim cap laid
aside, her pretty head showing above
the soft gray shawl in which she had
wrapped herself; and walkng by her
side a tall figure which I did not at
lirst recognized. This was Laurence,
Mrs. Power's nephew. He was clerk in
a bank, and hoped soon to be made
manager of a country branch.
The young people were by this time
coming up the steps leading from the
garden, and presently they entered the
room. Sister Anna came forward to
speak to me, a pink flush on her usual
ly pale cheek, a new light in her pretty
brown eyes. Laurence Moore stood be
hind her, an expression of supreme con
tent on his handsome face, while Mrs.
Power looked on, quiet and keen-eyed.
I wonder if she were quite satisfied
at the turn affair* seemed to be takinjf.
Sister Anna went over to her patient
and made some change for the better
in the arrangement of her wraps and
cushions. She then seated herself in
her usual low chair at the opposite
side of the fire. After a few minutes'
more talk I went away, Laurence
Moore accompanying me to the door
with an additional touch of empress
ment in his adways pleasant manner.
"I wonder if he looks on me in the
light of a parent or guardian to be
propitiated," I said to myself with
some amusement, as I settled myself
comfortably in the brougham. "I
think I shall refuse my consent—what
ever may be its value. That girl is a
capital nurse, much too good to be mo
nopolized by any one man."
About ten days later, on my next
visit, I was more pleased than sur
prised to be introduced to Sigter Anna
in the character of Mrs. Power's future
niece, although I did mingle some self
ish regrets with my congratulations.
"Oh," said Sister Anna, laughing, "I
am not goinig to desert my post yet
awhile. It is only to be an engage
ment for a long time to come, and must
not be spoken of. I thtnk I can prom
ise not to let any thought of the fu
ture interfere with my w^ork in the
present, Mr. Moran. I will put Laur
ence out of my head when once I en
ter the sick room."
"1 am afraid it has to be a long en
gagement," said Mrs. Power. They
cannot think of marrying until Laur
rence is a manager, and even then it
wculd be wiser to wait until he has
saved something. You know mine is
but a life income, so that beyond some
plate or an outfit of table linen I can do
nothing to help."
Sister Anna made it clear that she
did not mind waiting. Then the con
versation drifted to the subject of a
former talk about artificial hearts
made of India rubber, which were war
ranted, according to Sister Anna,
"never to ache."
"Come, Anna, you cannot know much
about heartaches, at any rate."
"Indeed, I had many a one the time
of my uncle's death," she answered.
"I do not know what I should have
done, had I not been compelled to rouse
myself and work."
"Did your uncle know you would
have to work?" asked Mrs. Power.
"No; he thought that he had provid
ed for me. In fact, I am sure that he
did do so, but the will never could be
found, so everything went to his
"His brother? But why did not
you, hie niece, come in for your share?"
"Don't you see, although I called him
uncle. I was only his wife's niece, and
In reality no relation whatever. My
I aunt was living when I first came to
them, so long ago that I can scarcely
remember it, but she died soon after,
and then my uncle and I took care
;of each other. The old house was a
pleasant place. It did not look like
i a farmhouse, for there were trees
; about it, and an old orchard and gar
! den. I wanted to manage the dairy,
too. but uncle said that th« work
would be too heavy for me— we had
i a good many cows— so there was a reg-
I ular dairy maid, who never allowed
me to interfere. I found it hard to
get cream for uncle's tea sometimes,
and I had to steal when 1 wanted to
; make a hot cake," she added, laughing.
"How did you employ yourself?"
! asked Mrs. Power.
"Oh, I had the house to attend to
j and the poultry yard, as well as the
i garden. And then I used to read a
good deal, uncle had quite a collection
Si ?■* " v. He « had been buv inK them all
his life, chiefly second-hand ones We
used to get catalogues of second-hand
! books from the London dealers and
sent for those we fancied most. It was
like putting into a lottery. I believe
some of the books were valuable
There was an old copy of 'Master
Humphrey's Clock, with pictures in
it, that used to delight me when I was
a child. Pictures of Nell and Quilp and
Dick Swiveller. I used to think how
nice it would be if uncle and I could
j go wandering about the world like Nell
and her grandfather, having the farm
to come back to when we were tired
The words "his wife's niece" had
somehow seemed familiar to me, but it
was not until the allusion to "Master ;
Humphrey's Clock" had supplied anoth- !
er link in the chain that there flashed
into my mind the remembrance of the
will hidden in the old copy at home—
Michael Darcy's will, with Its bequest
to "my wife's niece, Anastasia French "
I could hardly keep the excitement out
of my voice as link after link in the
chain of evidence was supplied, in
answer to my questions. I found that
her real name was Anastasia, now cut
down to Anna Ffrench; that her uncle's
name was Michael Darcy, and his farm
was known as Carrlgnalea. In reply
to my query as to her reasons for be
lieving that her uncle had made a will
in her favor, she said:
"After my poor uncle got the paral
ytic stroke of which he died he made
several attempts to speak, and as far
as we could understand, his words
were always about money, and about
J having 'made it all right for Annie.'
Besides, our old servant always de
clared that about a week before his
illness he had called her and another
! woman, who was accidentally in the
j house, into the sitting-room and*»ade
j them witness a paper, -which be said

was a will. When they had finished
signing he said, half to himself: 'Now,
my mind is at rest about Annie.' "
Why did he not get the will prop
erly drawn up by a solicitor?"
"He was fond of reading law books,
and knew something about law him
self. He has sometimes made wills
for other people, and I never heard
that there was anything wrong about
"And the will could not be found?"
"The will could not be found. We
hunted every where for it in vain, and
then Patrick Darcy said he did not be
lieve it had ever existed, and that old
Margaret had invented the whole story.
The other woman had left the neigh
borhood by that time. Patrick Darcy
offered to give me some money, but I
refused to take a gift from him. I
knew one of the nurses in the sister
hood here at Marsh port; she had been
nursing a lady in our neighborhood the
winter before, so 1 wrote to her, and
she got me taken as a probationer. I
was there for six months and then I
went to London to be trained. I in
tended to revolutionize the whole art
of nursing, but now Laurence has
spoiled all my plans."
There was no doubt that this was the
heiress of the will in my possession;
the question was, did the £3,000
still exist or had the heir-at-law made
away with it?
"What kind of a man is this Patrick
Darcy?" I asked.
"A hard man. Very close about
money. He is a good deal younger
than my uncle."
"Is he married?"
"No, he never married: his one idea
is to save money. I don't know what
will become of it when he dies, for
he has no one of his own."
This was satisfactory, and I took
my leave as soon as I could, feeling
a little ashamed of my apparently
motiveless curiosity, which, I could
see, surprised my old friend some
The first thing I did on reaching
home was to take "Master Humphrey"
from the book shelves, and make sure
that the will was quite safe. Next
morning I took it to my own solicitor,
who assured me that it was a valid
will, properly executed. He also
promised to make inquires about Pat
rick Darcy. And these inquiries prov
ed satisfactory; for in a few days, he
informed me that Patrick Darcy was
a well-to-do man, and a mark for a
far larger sum than the one due to
A day or two later, therefore, I
presented myself again at Mrs.
"I have brought you a wedding pres
ent, my dear," I said to Sister Anna,
handing her the three volumes of
"Of course," I added, seeing the look
of surprise that Mrs. Power could not
entirely conceal, "you shall have the
orthodox bracelet or claret jug later
on; this is only a preliminary."
"Indeed, Dr. Moran," said Sister
Anna, 'I don't think anything could
give me greater pleasure than this; it
is just like the copy of 'Master Humph
rey' we had at home. Why, I do be
lieve it is the actual book. Here is the
very pencil mark that poor uncle was
so angry with me for making. Where
did you get this, Dr. Moran? Was It
from Patrick Darcy?"
"I bought it, my dear, at a second
hand book shop a year or two ago. It
was only the other day I discovered
that you had an interest in it. Turn to
the picture of Barnaby and his raven.
I think you will find something there
that concerns you."
She turned to the pages with a prac
ticed hand until she reached the one
"Oh," she exclaimed, "here is my
uncle's writing. How strange it seems
to find it here."
"Read it," I said.
She glanced quickly over it, the color
fading out of her cheeks as she did so.
"It is the will," she gasped— "my
Mrs. Power was by her side in a mo
"Nonsense, Annie, how could your
uncle's will have found its way into
Dr. Moran's book? Here, let me see it."
And she took the paper from the girl's
Anastasia Ffrench looked at me
"Yes, my dear," I said, "it is all
right; I have shown the will to my
solicitor, and he says that you will
have no difficulty in making good your
claim to the money your uncle intend
ed for you."
"But I do not understand," said Mrs.
Powers. "How did the will come into
your possession, Dr. Moran?"
"When I bought these books, with
some others, I found the will lying as
you see, between the leaves. I thought
that probably it was a discarded will,
invalidated by the existence of a later
one. I meant, however, to make some
inquiries about it, but, before I had
time to do so, I received the news of
Philip's accident, which put all minor
matters out of my head for a long
time. I forgot all about the will, until
it was recalled to my mind a few days
ago by the sound of the name Anast
asia Ffrench. You must forgive me for
my carelessness, my dear; it is owing
to me that you did not come into pos
sesion of your money a year ago."
"I am more grateful to you, if pos
sible, for having forgotten the will last
year than for having remembered it
now. Had .you made its existence
known a year ago I would not, in all
probability, be here today."
"I did not think of that aspect of
the case. Then you would have given
up nursing had you known that you
need not do so as a means of liveli
"Certainly not, but I should in that
case have done volunteer work, and so
never have known Mrs. Power."
"Nor Laurence," supplemented that
lady. "I think he has the strongest
motive of all for being grateful to Dr.
Moran. But what has become of his
mother now? Annie's uncle has been
dead for three years."
"The money is perfectly safe and
probably well invested. Patrick Darcy
is, by all accounts, not at all the man
to let money lie idle."
"And can Annie get it back?"
"Certainly; there will be little or no
difficulty about that. So you may be
gin to see about your trousseau at once,
Miss Annie. I suppose the marriage
need not be delayed now," I said, turn
ing to Mrs. Power.
"Certainly not. Three thousand
pounds will make all the difference be
j tween a foolish marriage and a prudent
! one. Don't you think you could be
ready in six weeks, Annie?"
"I do not know about that." said
Annie, "but I am certain Laurence could
not. Had we not better say six months,

marriage took place the following

country branch of his bank by that
time, so that the young people had to

My wedding present to Sister Anna

CORN AND OATS NOW LOWER IN
CHICAGO THAN EVER
FALSE STArY FOR WHEAT.
OPENED AT AN ADVANCE, BUT THE
h»:a< -no a came at
heavy receipts responsible.
Provlnlona Repeated Their Per
formance «tf the Day Before
and Cloned at v L«h».
CHICAGO, Sept. s.— Corn and oats both
went through their accustomed performance
of making new low records today, closing
%c lower each. Wheat suffered from appre
hension of heavy Northwest receipts, and
closed %c lower. Provisions declined s@loc.
Wheat at the opening made a false start at
about %c advance, and had to Immediately re
turn and commence over again. December,
which closed yesterday at i»B@sß%e, com
menced this morning at 58% c. In about ten
minutes It was down around 58% c, with oc
casionally a few sales at 1-lGc below that.
The immediate course of the opening rise
was the comparatively cheerful tone of the
financial columns of the morning papers
and the announcement of 3,869,862 bushels as
the flour and wheat exports of the week,
compared with 2,260,000 bushels on the sim
ilar week of th« year before. Cables did not
respond to the decline here yesterday, and
this was an additional source of strength.
The weakness which so quickly succeeded
was ostensibly the result of the receipts at
Minneapolis and Duluth, reported as 1,117
cars, against 1,159 last year. The effect of this
was dissipated, however, when it was learned
that the receipts at Minneapolis were the
accumulation of two days, but it had the effect
of calling general attention to what may be
expected from that source. An accumulation
of over 1,000,000 bushels for the week, ex
pected as the result of the movement, with
that much more to be carried in the visible
supply on a stringent money market, was
without doubt the chief reason for the de
cline. The Chicago receipts were 268 cars,
only 10 of which ; were of contract quality.
The clearances from Atlantic ports were lib
eral, and New York reported a good inquij-y
there for export, but nothing could revive the
bullish spirit of the market. Lowsr conti
nental cables intensified the weakness and a
general selling out of purchases made around
58%e carried the price down to 57%@68c at
the close. Com was ■till weaker than it
had been, and reached an even lower depth.
September declined to the unprecedentedly
low price of 19*fcc per bushel. May opened
a shade higher at 24%®24%c, but soon turned
weak and declined to 24% c. the closing price.
Oats were slow and weak, prices reaching
a lower figure than ever known before. May
opened unchanged at 18% c, and declined to
18%@18%e, where it closed. Provisions vir
tually repeated the performance of the day
before. January pork declined from $5.65 at
the start to $6.5fi, closing at the latter. Jan
uary lard from $3.62% dropped to $8.57%, and
closed at that. January ribs fell from $3.32%
to $3.30. Estimated receipts for Monday:
Wheat, 325 care; corn, 900 cars; oats 400
cars; hogs, 35.000 head. No markets Mon

Dull Trade, With Quotations In
clined to Weakneta.
There was a dull, light trade in specula
tive wheat, with prices inclined to be easy
during the greater part of the session. The
opening was firm In sympathy with higher
cables and higher prices quoted at other
markets. But the advance found plenty of
wheat for sale, and the market for December
wheat at once declined to around 55c,
around which point it held throughout the
greater part of the session. There was a
good demand for all offerings of wheat of
contract grade, either on spot or to arrive,
but the market for off grades was dull and
more or less depressed. Following are clos

Midway Horse Market.
Barrett ft Zimmermann's report: While
there was no great killing made on the mar
ket this week, trade on the whole was good,
and offerings of the better quality, both
in draft horses and drivers commanded good,
fair price*. The arrivals toward the end of
the week were somewhat greater than the
actual demand, leaving a good supply on
hand for next week's opening market. The
sales at today's auction were the largest of
the week. Western representatives being lib
eral buyers of farm stuff at yesterday's quo
tations. For the coming week the outlook Is
favorable for' an advance In prices. Some

CHICAGO, Sept. s.— Today's cattle market

sales averaging 5c lower than Saturday. The
sheep market closed at an average de-Mine
for the week of 15@20c in sheep, and 7r.iv.-7)
$1.25 in lambs. But for a good export de

NEW YORK STOCKS.
Market Moderately Active and the
NEW YORK, Sept. s.— The stock market
today was moderately active with Sugar and
St. Paul considerably outranking the general
list In extent of trading. The speculation die
played an undertone of strength throughout,
although realizing sales and offerings for
short account caused occasional concessions,
especially after the publication of the bank
statement. That exhibit, as is frequently
the case, failed, to a considerable extent, to
indicate the actual condition of the banks,
and, of course, did not include the $5,696,000
in gold, or thereabouts, wtiich arrived too

was deposited in the banks. Of the amount
mentioned, $500,000 not being on the manifest
of the steamer, was not reported until late in
the day. The gold, with two other lots of
equal amount, was deposited at the subtreas
ury. The arrivals lor the week Tftade about
the largest aggregate imports In any single
week. The grand total was $JQ,106,468. The
initial prices were a shade below Friday's
closing figures, owing to realizations and bear
offerings, influenced chiefly by lower London
prices. After a brief reactionary movement,
prices took an upward trend and firmness
ruled all along the line. The closing was
dull but steady at slight gains on the day.
