OVER, THE CLOCK
00 O'" ';
After an intelligent old gentleman at the age of
seventy-six dropped dead in his rootn, his son found
over Two Thousand Dollars in Paper Money over the
old clock which stood on the wooden mantle, surround
ing an open crackling fire. Not even His Own Wife
knew that much money was there. The old gentle
man was simply careless. His son had married the
town bankers daughter, and the bank was trusted.
Both the old gentlemnan's MONEY and LIFE were
in danger; for burglars have a way of learning where
money is hidden, and fire at any time rnight have
burned the house.
