DAILY SHORT STORY
MY NEWLY FOUND SISTER.
The train rolled ir, to the station. I
g t up reluctantly from my seat and
followed the other passengers out ou to
the platform. I wojuld rather have
gjne on and on. fur I had njthing to
do and nowhere to fl?o in the towu at
which T had lauded. I had leen pros
iiecting without any luck till I was at
ebb tide flor funds. Indeed, n few loose
pieces of silver In my trousers pocket
were all my possessions except uiy
clothe. I bad come to Ii. simply be
cause I had got so heavily In debt at V.
Cumins down the platform was ti

There w as decision in her step and de

less she was attractive in face, figure
Now, there was the biggest surprise
iu store fur me that had ever overtak
en me. Striking a million dollar mine
wouTd have beerf nothing to what hap
pened. The moment the girl caught
sight of me her face lighted with a
smile. She ran up to me and. throw
ing ber arms around m kissed me.
As soon 11s she let go I; looked at her
"Why, you dear old Tom! I don't
believe you know me! Have you for
gotten your sister Sue'r"
Naturally I'm as honest as any man
living. lint here was a temptation too
big to be mastered. The girl had evi
dently expected her brother by the
train I had come 011 and hail mistaken
me for him. I hadn't more than
enough money to buy a dinner and no
where to sleep. Here was au offer of
comfort and the companionship of an
attractive woman. Only one thing de
terred nie the real brother might turn
up at any moment. P.ut what was this
chance to a prospector who had braved
Indians, starvation and all the ills
prospectors aid heir to? Taking toth
her hands in mine. I stood off and
looked at her critically. "Who would
have lelieved." I said, "you would
have made such a splendid girl?"
"I knew you at once, if I haven't
seen you since you were sixteen," she
replied. "Come. Jet us get into tlio
wagon. 15y the bye. where's your
trunk? oh, I forgot that you are in
hard luck! I knew you would come,
though you saitl you wouldn't. I'll put
you on your feet again and make a
rich man of you yet."
I thought of my proud brother pros
pector and bo ted that his pride would
keep him away till 1 could summon
resolution to tell the honest truth.
She drove me home to a nice cottage,
with tlower garden in front and veg
etable garden iu rear, and put nie in
a room into which the genial sun shone
and left me there to make a toilet.
Toilet! How could I make a toilet out
of rags? The only thing I could do was
to get the dirt off me and brush my
hair This I did. while u

afier taking time to make a dozen such
toilets and waiting till 1 whs nearly
famished, I went downstairs. A serv
ant was putting a huge porterhouse
steak 011 the table, with fried potatoes,
hot rolls and other delicacies such aa I
hail nol seen since 1 left home. We
sat down, and I consumed seven
eighths of all there was.
"Poor, dear loy!" said she. "It does
me good to see your hunger satisfied.
I was dreadfully afraid you wouldn't
I gradually found out that Sue's
brother was Tom Itemingtun. who had
run away from home when be was six
teen and bad drifted into the mines.
Afler their parents death Sue had
managed what little means they left
so well that a snug sum was 1-e.1Ii7.ed;
then she went in search of her brother.
They bad been separated so long ami
knew so little of each other that 1 had
small pains to keep from giving myself
away. I spent a week in this delightful
retreat with nothing but conscience to
trouble me. Then when I was well fed
up 1 announced to my sister that I
mil-1 g.i and settle up my affairs. To
do this it was necessary for me to ac
cept a luau. which I pocketed and, tell
ing Sue that she should soon have her
brother fur good, set out to liud the
real Tom IJemingtou.
1 found him !n the same Impoverished
condition as myself and proud as I.u-
ifer. I told him my story and declar
ed that I would never let up ou him till
he made his sister happy by going to
her and staying with her. lie fought
me off for awhile, but my persistence
won at last, and we started for Miss
Uoinlngtou's home. There was some
resemblance letween me and Tom
iCemlngton. which might have been
greater when we were boys. Without
announcing our coming, we appeared
ln-fore our mutual sister much to her
"It seemed to me," I said to her, "that
the kindness liestowed upon me deserv
ed some return. You were mistaken In
thinking me to be yonr brother. This
is your brother, whose pride has kept
him from you till I found him and
brought him to you. I crave your par
don for havlDg permitted you to de
ceive yourself, ray only excuse leinj;
that I was starving."
Miss Remington stood for some mc-
ments trying to collect her faculties.
then, taking us both by the hand, said: i
"Ton shall both le my brothepn. !
You." turning to me, "have done me '
great service, and had yon been realTj;

relieved me of all his share of onri
She then embraced her brother, but
the first heartiness had been expended
en me, and he did not receive so warm
a caress. I was urged to remain, btit
took my departure to once more hue
