Mr. Winierion s
Good LucK.
[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.
