[Original.] Clarence Wlnterton was one of those ?clous of un excellent fuuill}' wLo, hav ing speut what patrimony had come down to him, still continued "In the swim." He possessed a business suit, us he called lt-though he never did any business? and a dress suit, which he invariably put on in the evening, thus making up the sixteen of the twenty-four hours he was out of bed. This, with Ills club^iemlicrshlp, was his capital, without u hlch he could not otherwise have existed. The truth Is Wlnterton had inherited from a long line of gentlemen an In ability to do ordinary work. Despite this glurlng defect? a defect only iu a man without the wealth to which he bad been born? Wlnterton was much beloved. It was natural to him to uiuke friends. He couldn't help making people love him, and they coultlu t help loving him. When lie listened to their concerns. It was through instinct, not policy. When he sympathized with tlicui, it was from the kindness of hi? heart Eveu the tradesmen, who could not collect their bills of him, admired him. Wlntcrton was iu love with one of his set? they were all rich except liini? but, strange to say, his modesty that Is, his poverty? prevented him from proposing. The girl, Miss 1' ranees West, adored him. He had shown her what a woman Is tjuick to discern that he was in love with her? and she felt assured that his reason for not usklug her to be his wife was that she was rich and he was Impoverished. She had gained his every eontideuee except how he managed to live. "There Is something left of our once large es tates," he told her, theu immediately turned the subject. What that soiue tuiug was he only knew. Miss West suspected that it was his grandfather s watch, which he wore "because it was au heirloom." One day .Miss West went i ? of her father, who was an old n un invalid, to a shirt maker, win met Mr. Wintertou. lie was proun the haberdasher to settle his ;>< iuu, within a few days when Mi> West en tered. Indeed she distil- the words, "I shall be (Insli liv ' 'h i -day and will certainly"? At t "is point He saw the girl, turned, with a courtly bow, stood for a moment i !i:itting. hat In hand, then left the store. A few days later Mr. Wlnterton re celved a call from a lady wli > an nounced herself as a friend <>f Miss West's In behalf of a charity. .Mr. Wlnterton excused himself for a few minutes, went to a pawn shop around the corner, left his grandfather's watch and brought back a bill which he handed the solicitor. When Mr. Wlnterton called o.? Miss West that evening, he asked lier how she was getting on with her charity, and learned that she had no especial work of that kind then on hand. He knew that something was wrong, but managed to back out gracefully with out letting the ladv know of his sub scription. Then Miss West asked him what o'clock it was, and he was obliged to make lip a story about his missing watch. That night Miss West lay awake thinking. The next morning she sent 11 messenger te, the haberdasher's where she had met Wlnterton with a request for his bill. The tradesman, supposing the message came from \\ interton, wrote a jiollte note. Inclo-Ing a receipt ed bill with I11 currency, stating that possibly Mr. Wlnterton did not know when he su!^ Til >\1 to :l charity he was paying a legitimate debt. The amount returnc I was In excess. Then the matter was plain t ? Miss West that the tradesman, taking advantage of Wintertou' s acquaintance with her. had worked 11 plot to get the amount of his bill. The next time Wlnterton called on Miss West, while making one of his gallant declarations as to what lie would sacrifice for her, she Interrupted him with a request to give her that lovely, old fashioned watch which had belonged to his grandfather. "I couldn't," stann iere.1 Wlnterton. "It's an heirloom." I "Just now you were protesting yotir devotion for uie. It nppears that you are more tlevote<l to your grandfather." "But the wateh is loaned ton friend." "If you think more of your friend than me you may leave It with him." "But the friend Is- great heavens, do yon wish me to explain a matter In volving a lady?" Miss West laughed. "A 1 : ' < I y with three beautiful golden bulls hanging before his shop!" I Wlnterton opened his eyes. "I have solved another mystery," Miss West went on without explain ing the first. And she produced the haberdasher's letter, with receipted bill and f'2. Wlnterton read it. Like a cor nered stag, he sought an egress. "This letter," he said, "involves a number of singular coincidences." Miss West thrust her hand into the f^Uls of i some lace across her bosom and drew I out his grandfather's watch. I Mr. Wlnterton was staggered. This was like getting ready to lead a for lorn hope against an overwhelming en emy and having another enemy come down from another quarter. "Clarenw," said Miss West, "please don't tell me any more lies." This is all of the story that ever got out. Society heard it and laughed In its sleeve. Not knowing of Miss West's partiality for Mr. Winterton, it was naturally supposed that she treated him with the contempt to l>e expected. But society discovered Itself to be wrong when the announcement \va? made of Mr. Wlnterton's and Miss (Vest's engagement. ANDREW H. BATON. | ? ? midsummer Clearance Sale * ?
