A Hunt For a
By JOEL R. WITHERS
Hearing thnt there would be nn 11 no
tion sale- of furniture In n dwillinp
house the owner of which hud ivtvntl.v
died and that among the lot were muiie
rare old pieces. I determined to nttrnd
the mile. This was because of a f;in y
I had for stub things and not bee use
I could afford to possess them, for I
wa9 poor. I went to the sale to see tlie
article, not to buy any of them.
Among those present was a girl who
watched the proceedings with an ln'er
est very different from the rest, Sln
attracted me so far thnt I forgot the
rarities In her. It seemed tn me th:t
she was waiting and watching fur
some particular thing to be put up
for sale. It came at last. A desk p r
baps a hundred years old un tie of
rosewood and handsomely Inlaid was
pulled forward where all could see It,
and the bidding commenced.
Some one made a beginning by offer
ing $'J0. The girl I have mentioned
bid twenty-two. N Another bid of twenty-live
followed. A number of persons
seemed to want the desk, and It v:is
run up to a hundred dollars, when the
girl ceased to bid. I cannot forget tUe
look of disappointment, almost of de
spair, with which she gave up her ef
fort to possess It. Why it was so de
sirable to her I could only conjecture.
She did not appear to be a person who
could afford luxuries, so I concluded
that bofween ber and the desk there
must beV-"" association. Perhaps It
hnd belong, to one near and dear to
I had been saving tn a small way
and had $300 In bank. I determined
to bid as high as what I thought the
desk would bring In case I wished to
sell it again and offered $110. My bids
were raised till I finally off ered '$J00,
when the others dropped out and 1 se
cured the desk.
Turning to the girl who had been so i
Interested In it, I told her that I didn't
need It and If at any time she wished
frrt nncaoaa If ami Via1 tha rr-iA.iiu v twi
for it I would be happy to sell it to her
for what I had paid. In reply to this
she asked me if I would permit her to
make a thorough examination of the
desk for something she thought might
be conceuled In It. I gave ber the ad
dress to which It would be taken audi
told her that she might call the nest
As soon as 1 got the desk I opened
every drawer, searched every pigeon
hole, rammed my bund In every recep
tacle it possessed. It bud evidently
been thoroughly cleaned out. for I
could ot find a scrap of paper. The
same afternoon the girl came, and as
soon as I showed her the desk she be
gan to press ber Augers ou every part
"Oh." I said, "you are looking for a
At this I joined my efforts to hers,
but without avail. I not only pres-o-d
with my thumb, but with a little hit ai
mer, tapping continuously for half if tt
hour. Nothing came of it Then I in
vited the girl to tell me what she was
looking for. She said tuut the lions"
and furniture belonged to ber mother's
brother, who bad died childless, lie
bad always liked ber and had oines.ud
to her. "I'll tlx you some day." He
had died without a will. There were a
great many helrs-at-law to the estate,
and she, uot being a blood relative,
would get nothlug. She was uot strong
and could uot very well earn a living
by working like other girls. Iu fact
she had tried to do so, but had lieeu
obliged to give it up. Her uncle bad
once showed her this desk and told liei
that be kept iu it his most Important
papers. It hud not occurred to her
that he meaut ber to take note of what
he said till after bis death, when no'
will was found.
I would have knocked the desk to
pieces, but could not afford to lose the
money 1 bad put Into it, and the girl
had no means of ber own te pay for it.
She went away very much disappoint
ed. 1 took her name and address and
told ber that I would do some more
buutiug and if anything was discov
ered would let ber know of It. But
this was simply to break ber disap
pointment, for we bad made a thorough
A month passed, during wbich I
thought a good deal of the matter and
tried to locate a space capable of hold
ing a secret drawer, but I could uot
tell with certainty without taking the
desk apart. My taste for old furniture
led me to read any book I could tiud
on the subject, and in one of them 1
saw It stated that some secret draw
ers In desks made during the eight
eenth century bad been of metal In
stead of wood.
Then an Idea occurred to me.
Among my odds and ends was a
pocket compass. I took it to tbe desk
and held It near. where a drawer would
likely be if at all. I bad not gone very
far before I got a deflection of the
needle. Moving It about near this
point. I at last came to a place where
there was the greatest deflection. With
my knife 1 ripped off a strip of veneer
ing aud uncovered a round button tbe
size of tbe tip of my finger.; Out pop
ped a steel drawer about ten inches
long. iut not over an inch square.
There was a rolled paper in it, which
I removed and found to be a will.
Scanning it. I saw that tbe.eutlre es
tate bequeathed by it was to be given to
tbe girl whose name and address 1 had.
There Is a sequel to this story, but
tbe subject matter of that is a love af-
TRIED TO BE OBLIGING.
The Old Gentleman Old His Best to
Make the Cass Quits Clear.
A dear old gentleman, who visited
New York recently, has a habit of tak
ing things literally, and Is so kind
hearted that he is always ready to fall
In with the wishes pt other people,
even at trouble or Inconvenience to
h'lmself. The day after his arrival In
the city be Stepped into the office of a
large coal dealer and asked if the pro
prietor was at home. Upon being
shown Into the private office of that
gentleman, he took a seat and began:
"You see, sir, I live away up in War
ren county 200 or more miles from
here. Now, to ship coal 200 miles from
hew would be mighty costly. It would
have to go over three roads the New
York and Hudson River road, the Dela
ware and- Hudson and the Adirondack
road unless I sent it up by the boat,
which would mean loading and unload
ing and loar)ag again. Besides, mostly
up there where I live the folks burn
wood, though I use some coal myself."
"But. dear me, what!" said the as
tonished coal dealer, as soon as be
i ----- . . .
"1 SAW A SION tOO HAD PCT OCT."
could get a chance to say something,
"why. what is the meaning of all this?
I haven't proposed to send coal to you
np in Warren county."
"No, sir." replied the old gentleman,
rising from his chair, "but when I'm
asked a question, I always answer it.
If I can." ,
"I was not aware that 1 bad put a
question to you." responded the coal
dealer, rather Impatiently.
"Well, uot directly, perhaps." an
swered the old geutleman. turutug to
leave, "but as I was passing by. on
my way downtown, 1 saw a sign you
bad put out asking, 'Why don't you
buy your coal from us?' aud I thought.
If you took the trouble to put that out,
I might as well take the trouble to step
in and explain. Good moruiug!"
And be went out. leaving the coal
dealer amazed and speechless.
Meant What She Said.
A Columbia professor rebuked the
hidebound grammarian at a studio tea
in New York with a story.
"A lady." be said, "bad a rather dis
sipated husband, and one evening she
said to a friend:
44 'I wish I knew where George wasT
"The friend, a professor's wife, said
" 'I presume, dear, you mean you
wish you knew where he is?' 1
" 'No, I don't' said the lady. . 't know
where he is. He is upstairs in bed
with bloodshot eyes and a terrific bend
ache. I want to know where be wasT "
H Rattled Dickens.
When Charles Dickens was in Wash
ington be met one morulng on tbe
steps of tbe capital a. young congress
man from Tennessee whom the great
novelist bad offended by his boorlsb
ness. That morning Dickens was in
great good humor and full of talk. ' "I
have." said be. "found an almost exact
counterpart of Little NelL" "Little Nell
who?" queried tbe Tennessecan. Dick
ens looked him over from head to foot
and from foot to head before be snort
ed out. "My Little Nell." "Oh." said
the Tennesseean. "I didn't know you
had your daughter with you." "I am
speaking of the Little Nell of my fic
tion, sir." retorted Dickens, flushing.
"Oh." said the Imperturbable Tennes
seean. "you write novels, do you?
Don't you consider that a rather trifling
occupation for a grownup man?"
Dickens snorted like a quarter horse
and hurried down the avenue.
Willing to Help.
Vice President Sherman desires to
maintain order in tbe senate and fre
quently calls down the body in general
terms without singling out any particu
lar man. It often happens that when
a dry androsy speaker has the floor a
group of senators will begin telling
stories and make a great deal of con
fusion with their laughter. On one oc
casion a group was listening to Senator
Taylor of Tennessee, and tbe mirth was
rather uproarious. They paid no atten
tion to the gavel of the vice president
nor to the frowns of the speaker.
Finally Sherman sent a uote to ths
group which read. "If that fellow who
thinks be Is making a speech Is Inter
fering with one of Bob Taylor's stories
I shall call him to order." Washington

Two farms lay side by side, the one
belonging to old Charnley, the other to
young Peterson. Peterson had inher
ited bis farm with a debt on it and had
no money with which to stock or work
it. The season for planting was com
ing on, and Charnley was looking out
for hands. Peterson told htm that if
he would hire him for the whole sea
son he would work for him. To this
One morning In April Albert Peterson
was plowing in Charnley's field. The
trees were just taking on that delicate
shade of pale green which is so beautl
ful while the air was- balmy with the
first warm breeze coming tup from the
south. Albert rested his horses, tied
the reins to the plow handle and. lean
ing against a fence, looked out upon
the pleasant prospect. At intervals
came a few notes from a bird or a pair
of birds building a nest in a treetop.
It was music to Albert, who loved tho
country and hated the city. He was
thinking about the latter and bow he
should miss the former, for farming
had not paid bis father nor did he see
how it could pay him. So he expected
iu the fall to go to town and try for a
position in some store or manufactory.
Suddenly he felt a pair of hands clasp
ed over his eyes. They were not hard
and coarse, but soft and fine. They
must be a woman's.
"Guess who I nm?"
"No guessing is required. Tour
voice gives you away. You are Ethel
The clasp was loosened. He turned
and on the other side of the fence saw
a girl of nineteen.
"You look as If you had lost your
best friend." she said. "What's the
"Oh, I was thinking how lovely the
country is. and I've got to leave it In
the fall for the city. 1 have no money
to work my farm, and I don't propose
to .work for other people.. Besides,
farming doesn't pay."
"Do you know why It doesn't pay?"
"No: do you?"
"I've been reading In a farmer's
Journal thnt it could be made to pay
If practiced scientifically. They say a
few acres worked on scientific princi
ples Is far better than a great many
worked In the old fashioned, blunder
ing way. Why don't you go to some
of those colleges where they teach new
methods and learn how they do it?"
"I never thought of that," said Al
bert meditatively. But presently he
"To 'obtain money to pay my ex
penses while studying I'd have to sell
my farm, and when I got It all learn
ed I wouldn't have a farm to work."
There was a short sileuce, which the
"Suppose you get the education and
leave the rest to well, to your own
endeavors afterward. You'll be sup
plied with a capital better than a
farm, for a farm is no use if you don't
know how to make It pay."
"Well. Miss Longhead, what else do
."After I'd got the education It seems
to me I would take a position for
awhile In the service of some of those
men iu the city who handle farm prod
uce. I don't see much use of learn
ing how to get good crops If you don't
know how to get paying prices for
Albert looked at her In surprise.
"Whe,re did you pick np all that?" he
"I read a great deal. There's a lot
In our country papers now we used not
to get. Then I think about what I
read, it has shown me that our old
fashioned ways of farming are passing
"Farming Is .going to be like man
ufacturing. It Is manufacturing In a
sense. We mix chemicals with the
ground and manufacture crops. Tbe
manufacturers of goods know as much
about tbe business of selling as of mak
ing tbem. Why shouldn't it be the
same with the farmer?"
Albert gaped at this slender girl and
- "Whoever would think that a young
woman, who couldn't guide this plow
once across tbe field, would stand there
telling me, a strong man, what to do?
I'll not .only go to college in the fall,
but I'll write at once for bulletins an
nouncing their courses of study ancf
all that and nights when I'm not at
work I'll be making my preparations."
Five yeurs from that time Albert Pe
terson returned from his college and
his business training. He stopped at
the Charnley farm and, seeing a young
woman directing some field hands pre
paring the soil for planting, said:
"I'll give you some points on that."
And be proceeded to lecture them for
half an hour while they listened ea
gerly. "Is that you, Bert?" asked tbe wo
man. "Yes. I've finished what you advised
one spring morning five years ago."
"WelU I'm glad to see you. Come
into tbe bouse."
While Peterson had been preparing
himself for a life work time had been
preparing a field of labof for him. Old
Charnley had died and left bis proper
ty to bis daughter. She had tbe farm,
Peterson the knowledge. 80 they made
a match, and today a small part of the
Cbaruley farm Is paying far more than
the whole paid under the oid system of
farming. The owners kok forward to j
