Judgment as to the value of a rich man's
estates may not be so far out of the
way, notwithstanding the popular be
lief that the newspapers are prone to
Lxaggerate in these matters. After
the death of Jay Gould the newspapers
kindly took a hand at the business of
posting his books and striking a bal
ance for the benefit of their readers.
The result of this arithmetic was the
-oncurrent journalistic opinion that Mr.
Gould had left about $72,000,000 and
some odd cents. Now it appears that
the newspapers did not place too large
a value on the estate, but, according to
the figures of Appraiser McClure, un
derestimated it by nearly $9,000,000,
the actual value being $S0,964,580.79,
instead of S72.000,000. If you see it

THE HOUR OF PEACE
Upon the doorstone sat the %n ife,
The twilight falling.
A.nd far below the whippoorwills
Were softly calling.
The sweet winds dropped upon their way
Their honeyed plunder,
And slow and clear the night built up
Its house of wonder.
Within the child dreamed deep. and saw
Four angels keeping
their gentle watch with drooping win;l
About his sleeeping.
While singing from the steep below,
Where shadows slumbered,
Her true love climbed, and in his heart
His treasures numbered.
Aknd sighing faintly to herself
With purest pleasure,
Life brimming at her lips to full,
She marveled if the happy earth,
This summer even,
Were not the paved work laid berore
The courts of heaven. '
4and yet a cold wind from the cloud
To snatch in blowing
the little breath between the lips
So lightly flowing;
A pebble under foot where sheer
The rock descended
Ah, Fate! What slender chances held
Her heaven suspended!
)N CHICAGO LIMITED
It Is the twilight time of the busiest
-laddest, most hurried day in all the
year-the day before Christmas. The
scene is the Grand Central depot, that
portal through which, in the morning,
pour the countless thousands who are
is the sands of the shore in the midst of
the great city; through which at night
these countless thousands depart, and
the city knows not that they have gone.
On this evening the crowd Is a glad
and a merry one, and though there
is much pushing and jostling every one
Is good-natured; for, indeed, is not this
the eve of gladness-that gladness
which is the touch of nature making
the whole world kin?
In the waiting-room of that roa6
which leads to Chicago, on the edge of
the crowd forcing its way through the
narrow gateway leading to the limited
train, is a little lady, who to a keen
eyed observer shows a notable lack of
the holiday atmosphere. She Is fault
lessly tailor-made as to garbing, she
Is gloved and booted and hatted in the
most exactly correct of the smart
styles; and she carries a small handbag
which looks as assured and self-con
tained as does the little lady herself.
She waits until she can pass the gate
without being crowded, then shows her
ticket, walks through, finds her car,
hands her little bag to the- porter say
ing, "Section No. 9," and is presently
romfortably saeted facing the engine.
Altogether a very well regulated and
systematic little lady, but evidently a
little lady who either does not know
it is Christmas eve or, knowing, is for
some reason trying to forget It. As
the train moves out of the great depot
and the little lady watches the lights
tiashing rapidly by, two great tears
Ireep out of her beautiful eyes and
rleam for a moment on the veil that
falls from fhe jaunty traveling hat.
Soon dinner is announced in the dining
rar, and the little lady walks calmly
through the traIn, eats her dinner,
then as calmly returns to her place.
As the porter passes she glances at
the unoccupied section opposite and
"Porter, is No. 10 not taken ?"
"Reserved for a party at hn
Milss," is the reply.
"Then I may sit there for a while and
watch the river," says the little lady,
and she takes the scat- by the window
and looks out across the Hudson and
watch~es th~e lights coming out one boy
one along the Palisades. After a time
she return to her own place, takes a
novel from her sachel and settles her
self to its perusal, but by and by she
discovers that it is all about a husband
and wife who become estranged, and
then make it all up and live happy ever
more, and the little lady signifies her
disapproval by closing the book with
a vicious bang and saying, after a mo
Iment's thought, "Nev-er!" She then
cailed the porter and had her sectior
I repared for the night.
Ere long she had drifted to that land
where dreams take posseslon of us,
and whlether she would or not her
dreams were all about a tall, dark man
with merry eyes, which could look se
vere, and with a pleasant voice which
called her Edith, and all through the
diream was a little dog. a skye terrier,
for which she did not seem tc care at
all, but which seemed to have a gieat
deal to do with everythng-and then
r pleasant voice said briskly:
"Porter, is No. 10 ready?" And the
voice somehow seemed to go with the
tail, dark man in the dream, and she
half awoke with a dry little sob, and
mur-mu red sleepily, "Never!" and went
back tc her dreams until the sunshine
of Christmas morning came through
the curtins and brought her again to
the world of real things. As she emerg

toilet she discovered that the opposite

becomuing conscious of her disheveled
co ndition. she made a frantic rush for
the end of the car. When she appeared
again she was as fresh and blooming
as a rose. Her section meanwhile had
been made up, and she settled herself
comfortably and gazed out at the

ward her, and then she heard a voice
with a.wealth of love in its tones say,
"Edith," and the voice was that of the
tall, dark man in her dream. Then the
pretty face hardened and the bright
eyes grew cold and the little head lifted
haughtily as she said: "Sir, you havf
made a mistake."
The tall man paused a moment, look
Ing down at the averted face, and then
iaid, softly: "Edith, will you not come
'o breakfast with me and talk it over?"
"Certainly not," was the reply, it
frosty tones; "I prefer to breakfas1
alone," and with that she rose and
stalked past him directly away from th4
'ining car. It was humiliating to be
obliged to retrace her steps and pasi
him again, but she did it bravely, trying
n->t to see that he sat with his head
>ressed close against the window. Whei
after breakfast, she returned to he)
teat, her neighbor was not to be seen.
The great train rolled on, and the ca.
wheels whirred and sung their Christ
roas carol, but to the little lady in see
tnoD 9 they brought no thought 01
"peace on earth, good will toward men.'
She had taken another book from hei
satchel, and appeared greatly absorbei
in it. A very dear old lady in the see
tion back of her had been watching al
ihe proceedings, and now, glancing
over the shoulder of the little lady shi
noted that the leaves of the book were
uever turned, and she said to herself
v Ith a kindly smile: "Poor children! E
lovers' quarrel." Soon the book boJ

laid a volume of poems on the seat be
s:ide the little lady, as he said: "Th<
gertleman in the smoker said I was t
iand this to you, ma'am."
Edith glanced at the book, then .ou,
of the window for a moment, then agair
at the book. She saw 'that a leaf was
turned down, and her hand went slowl3
out toward the little volume, and the
very dear old lady in the next seal
looked on and smiled. Edith turned tc
the indicated page, and found a verse
marked; it was part of a poem that the
pleasant voice of the tall, dark man had
mwany times read to her, and now 11
came to her as a message, and this wat
Alas, how easily things go wrong!- I
A word unsung in a lover's song,

Alas, how hardly things go right!

The stars will lade in the gloom away,
And the summer's night is a winter's day.
.Sne read the verse softly through, and
a tender light came into her eyes; then,
as the book dropped to her lap, she saw
something was written on the flyleaf,
turning to It she read: "Edith, from
Philip; merry Christmas," written it
the strong, manly hand that had writ
ten her so many words of love. If Phil
ip could have come to her then all
would have been well; but such is the
perverseness of fate we do not knowi

tv'sting his mustache fiercely and say
'ng to himself:
"Poor little girl, she is awfully hard
with me, and all about a beggarly dog.
Confound the beast, anyway. I always
lid hate little dogs!"
And the car wheels still whirred ant
sunig and all their song was "Peace on
earth;" and at every station the passen
gers leagng the train, laden with their
plasant-looking parcels, were met and
greeted by those who needed them te
complete their Christmas circie, and
the train hands were greeted by their
friends in passing, and everyone was
happy and full of holiday cheer save
only the little lady in section 9 and the
tali, dark man in the smoking compart
ment. Philip made another effort at
uncheon time; he came slowly down the
aislc. and said: "Edith, shall I get you
some luncheon?' The little lady, see
is:g him approaching, had seized her
novel, and, in response to his question,
glanced coldly up from its pages just
long enough to say, with extrem'
rostiness: "Thank you, no."
Philip noticed the book of po'ems OL
the seat, apparently untouched, but he
gained some trifling comfort from also
noting that the novel in Edith's hands
was upside down. He returned to the
smoker, and Edith, throwing her novel
pttishly down, sat gazing out of the
window. Presently she had the porter
bring her a cup of tea, and Just as she
had finished it she felt a light touch on
e' shoulder as a sweet voice said: "My
dear, don't you want to come and talk
o a tired old lady ?
After they had chatted a while the.
very dc'ar old lady said: "I have been
witching you all day, my little girl, and
you must pardon an old lady if she asks
you some questions. Is the tall young

'No," said Edith, "I am sorry to say
he is my husband."
"Sorry!" said the old lady; "oh no,

hand. Don't you want to tell the old
lady all about it? I have had a lot of

The very dear old lady listened with
