A COOL MILLION. "A cool million!" said Mrs. Archbald, of New York, oracularly. "I know it is not less than a cool million." She was Vtary exact, you will observe, in stating the precise temperature of this large nun of money. She meant John Warbeck's fortune, made in Colorado, with which he was now on his way, after long years of ab ■ance, to his sister's home. There cer tainly never was a family in such a state of excitement over an approaching event as was ours now. Nothing else had been talked, of for weeks. The only person who appeared the least bit calm was Mr. Archbald, but then he, you know, was a nonentity. After his wife had spoken the above words he folded up the letter he had been reading, sheathed it in its envelope, and resumed his breakfast Mrs. Archbald eyed him impatiently for some time, and then said rather se- Yerely: "Well, Mr. Archbald, if you can find time to tell me, I should like to know what my brother John says. When will he arrive? Pray don't choke!" "To-morrow morning," answered the old gentleman, "bnt not with a cool mill- Ion." "Something very near it then—only a little less." "Considerably less, my dear—a twenty dollar note." "What? Please talk sensibly, Mr. Arch bald. I hate jokes and riddles; I don't understand them." "He said he never had more than two hundred thousand dollars, and that he I loat last week in St. Louis at cards. You know his weak point. He always would ' play. Everybody gambles at the mines. , fie sat np two days and two nights over : the game they call faro, and left the : table with fifty dollars in his pocket. When he arrives here he will have about ; twenty. He intends to begin the world ; again, and 1 suppose we shall have to take care of him till he can get an open ing." Mrs. Archbald had turned deadly | pale. She seized her husband's letter mod hastily read it through. Yes, it was quite true, and John Warbeck was com ing back after so long an absence, just as he had gone—a beggar. "Very well," said his affectionate sis ter, "IT] take care to teach the gentle man that this is not the almshouse. He ! always was a fool, but he shall find that ; 1 am not one at any rate." Fanny eyed her mamma with some curiosity. All the past week she had heard nothing but praises of Uncle John's shrewdness and industry, and particularly of his self sacrifice and good I sense in never marrying. "If anything should happen, my love ! —he is old, you know, and has led a \ wearing life—it would—distress me be- J yond measure. 1 should never recover, j I fear. But you see, Fanny, everything —positively every penny he has—would gO to you. You must be very attentive J to your uncle, darling." So mamma had previously often said, and now the change of sentiment was startling as it was sudden. Instead the new instructions were: "Your uncle j has no claim upon us, child. You must | tftke very little notice of him." if annie was a pretty and also a good girl, and she felt very much distressed at the idea of ill treating her poor old uncle, and so when Lucius Mallory came that evening she confided everything to ' him. • Lucius was her admirer, under strong protests from the maternal head of the house, as his pecuniary prospects were at present rather dismal, but he was al lowed to visit the young lady once or twice a week, strictly as a friend, and 1 think it needs no conjurer to tell us that the two young people were not dream ing of any such thing as marriage. As to the ring in the little trunk up stairs, kept always locked up, where it came from and what it meant, I express no opinion. "Indeed it would be a shame, and real ly a sin, Fannie," said Lucius firing up,f or he was young and chivalrous. "If you must treat the old gentleman coolly in public—l mean before your mamma yon ought to let him know the reason in private." And this is just what Fannie deter mined to do. I So the next morning Uncle John ar rived, He was tall and raw boned and gray, and certainly very rough in his ap pearance; but he had an honest, smiling face, and a wonderfully hearty way About him that certainly would have •won the kindness and sympathy of al most anybody except Mrs. William Archbald. ' William Archbald himself shook hands with the old man, and was rather cordial despite the menacing eye of his wife; bat she was grand and distant, and as suredly so marked in her bearing that its meaning could not be misunderstood. When Fannie kissed her uncle her mamma's fingers tingled to inflict a cer tain nursery chastisement long disused, but the elder lady commanded her temper and only said, "Fannie, you have not watered the flowers, I think." Uncle John seemed rather surprised. He had received reams of letters from his sister Clara imploring him to pay his long promised visit, and how he boasted to his friends of the kind hearts that were beating with so much warmth and good feeling toward him. "They will eat me upl" he had said, over and over and over, his corded and weather beaten face radiant with happy .anticipations. "It makes a fellow feel Joyous to think there's somebody cares tar him. Let's wind up agin, boys." | 1 fear it was because he was entirely too well wound up that he parted with his money so speedily at St. Louis. But did he care now? "Tve a home and good friends to take care of me the rest of my life," he said, and this speech considerably annoyed the gentlemen who heard it, for they remarked among themselves, "That jOld fogy has piles of money hidden (•way somewhere. What we've won isn't a drop in the ocean. Let's go fot laome more." Bnt Uncle John declined to play again, and nothing could persuade him to break his resolution. He went to bed and had a good rest, and then, as we know, start ed at once for his sister's. He was surprised, as has been said, and not without cause. He really could not understand it. Had he omitted any polite form in his reintroduction to civ ilised society, or was the whole matter merely fancy after all? Nc; certainly THE LOS ANGELES HERALD. TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1890, tnat hauteur and those cold monosylla bles were a-- unpleasant realities as one conld experience: and that neglect by the servants, that consignment to the stuffy little attic in the back building, that second table aud those cold dishes— these were the grimmest kind of facts. So in a day or two poor Uncle John was perfectly miserable. No one had any thing to say to him, and he moped in his miserable little den alone, wishing he had remained at the mines, at St. Louis, anywhere, rather than have come here. Bnt one evening there was a tap at the door which interrupted the most dismal reverie he had yet had, and who should enter but Miss Fannie! She threw her arms around the old man's neck and began to cry a little, and he, rather bewildered, iesponded by such soothing words as he could command: and presently she said: "Oh, Uncle John, what must you think of us all? You are treated so badly! I am going to tell you the truth, dear Uncle John; it's mamma's fault. Lucius says it's a sin and a shame, and so it is, and I won't encourage or take part in it." There was a good deal more sobbing, rather unintelligible and very afflicting to the listener, but the truth soon peeped out, and John Warbeck in a flash saw all. The revelation was the greatest grrtf of his life. His sister, the pretty, kind Clara of long ago, changed to this! "She loved my money and not me!" he thought. "It is worth a quarter of a million, and more, to find out a thing like this. Now, what shall Ido about it?" Fannies countenance soon cleared up, seeing he was more cheerful, and so they talked a long time in the soft twilight of that little room, and she told him, as he tenderly smoothed her pretty hair, a little secret. It was, of course, some thing in regard to Lucius. She and Lu cius were secretly engaged to be mar ried. "And you see this pretty ring, Uncle John? Well, he gave me that—isn't it beautiful?—and it's a pledge, you know, of his fidelity and truth. We are going to wait for each other ever so long!" And truly they were, if poor Fannie was going to wait for the accumulation of that "easy* competence" upon which her mamma insisted as a sine qua non, but which as yet was a thing seriously projected and not begun. All this was very delightful to old John Warbeck, a poetical romance in wliich he instantly became profoundly interested, to the entire exclusion of his own affairs. He got up, went over to his trunk, and took from that capacious receptacle a pair of old fashioned ear rings and a breastpin. The breastpin was a large locket set with diamonds, and there was a faded daguerreotype in it of a lady—some one, perhaps, whom Uncle John had once admired. "Yours, my child," he said, tenderly pinning the gift to her dress, and placing the earrings in her hand. "When you look at them sometimes you'll think of old Uncle John, won't yon?" These things were antique enough, it is true, but worth 1 dare not calculate how much. Fannie kissed her uncle so often, between crying and laughing, that for the first time ha realized the coveted sensation of "being eaten up." And so she left him and slipped down stairs to show them to mamma. Mrs. Archbald's large eyes opened in the greatest amazement. "The handsomest I ever saw!" she ejaculated with a gasp; and that even ing John Warbeck was invited to sup with'the family —"to try the fried chicken!" Somehow he had a sort of instinct that enabled him to see humiliation in anything that savored of resentment, and so he complied and greatly relished the fried chicken. Fannies little con fidence, however, was not without its effect. He no longer remained moping in his room, but went out every morn ing with great regularity, and seldom returned till nightfall. He also became very intimate with Lucius, aud what ever their secrets were, Fannie, I sus pect, was not excluded from sharing them. "Clara," said Mr. Archbald one day to his wife, "who do you think I met in Spurrier's banking house this morning, making a deposit, too?" "I don't know, Mr. Archbald, I'm sure." "John Warbeck." "John!" Her husband nodded. Mrs. Archbald became thoughtful, and something startling seemed to have occurred to her. That night John Warbeck was agreeably •nrpMSed to find that he was no longer to occupy the little back attic room. "Why you will insist on that horrid room, John, I can't imagine," said his sister, "when you know there are three or four vacant chambers on the second floor." "Well, Clara, it's all one to me," he answered good humoredly; "but, now that we aro alone, I want to be frank with you. I've been here for some time, and —and it"— he hesitated—"it goes against my grain to live at any place without paying for my accommodation, you know. I don't feci independent. Now, here's a hundred dollars—not for my board, you know, Clara—but just as a present. I want you to buy a dress or something with it." "John Warbeck," said Mrs. Archbald indignantly, "I do not deserve this in sult. Your home is here as long as mine is here. I felt honored —I felt touched, John," she continued, tears starting to her eyes, "when you wrote that you in tended to spend the evening of your days under my roof; and now to offer money—to your own and only sister— who has always loved you" And she quite broke down and sobbed violently. John put away the money and soothed her as well as he knew how, but she left him apparently deeply wounded. By the time she reached her husband's study her feelings were evidently under better control, for she burst in upon that elderly gentleman, who was quietly read ing his paper, with the words, "William Archbald, you always would have your own way, and now see the result! My poor brother, John Warbeck, has been in this house weeks—weeks, sir—and treated like a dog! You would have us all believe he was a pauper, though 1 knew from the first he was a man of enormous wealth! He is worth a cool million today if he is worth a penny'" "Do you think so, my dear?" gat-; — ; William Archbald, truly astonished "I was sure of it from the first, md but for you, Mr. Archbald, would 1 pursued a very different course from the shameful one you have made your fam ily follow, it was only a little subter fuge on John Warbeck's part. His fortune is intact, and he only wished to test us. Eccentric wealthy people do these sort of tilings every day." "Bless me! Do they?" ejaculated the old gentleman in real wonderment, "Well, let us make amends as quickly as possible. He is not gone yet, luckily." "It will be difficult, I fear, to repair the harm done, but I shall try, for our de-ar Fannies sake. He is very fond of her; that is evident from his giving her that handsome present. And who else can ho leave his money to? I con sider it settled upon her already; and so, by the way, that young Mallory had better cease his visit here. He keeps more eligible people away; and now that Fannie is such a distinguished heiress," continued Mrs. Archbald, rather san guinely, "she must make a most brill iant match." "But," timidly suggested Mr. Arch bald, "hadn't you better find out if your brother really contemplates leaving her all his fortune? Nothing like being on the safe side, you know." "I shall attend to that, Mr. Archbald, as I do to everything else that concerns the interest'of this family," answered the lady, with gloomy sarcasm. Thus it happened that John Warbeck was sent for that evening by his sister, and pressed to pass an hour or so in the parlor listening to "dear Fannies mu sic. She plays so beautifully, John, and I think it so unkind that you have never expressed a wish to hear her." Poor Uncle John had never had the audacity to even dream of entering such a sacred spot as the parlor. However, he accepted the present invitation grate fully, and Fannie played all the lively airs sho knew—ho liked simple and cheer ful music—for an hour, and then mamma contrived to get the man alone near the window, where they could not be over heard, and diplomatic proceedings be gan. "My dear girl will be a treasure to the man she marries; don't you think so, John?" "Deed do I, Clara; and I fancy I can guess who'll be the lucky fellow that'll get her," answered Uncle John, making free somewhat on the prompting of re cent events. "You surely don't mean young Mai lory?" "1 do, indeed; and he's worthy of her. He's a treasure, that young man is, Clara, honest and industrious; and if he marries Fannie he'll become a rich man, mark me." "What does he mean by that." thought mamma. "But ho is too poor at pres ent, John: nothing but a trifling salary.'' "So he may be," laughed her brother; "but he ain't dead yet, nor is he aged. They're suited for each other, sister, and somebody ought to help 'em to come to gether." Mrs. Archbald became radiant. She laid her hand gently on John's arm, and leaning toward his shoulder said, with ever so sly an emphasis, "And wonld you help them, John?" "I'd be proud to do it, Clara. I tell you it I was to see those two married I'd leave 'em everything I have. Now. what would you do for 'em, sister?" He looked her rather defiantly in the eyes, smiling, and yet sharply, too, and it was as if he were playing his favorite game of "poker" and had just bet on a good hand. Mrs. Archbald often said she was a business woman, and let us admit it in justice. She answered: "John, if you promise me to make your will in Fannies favor, leaving her at your—in fact, at your de cease —everything, I will not only con sent to her marriage with Lueius Mal lory, but will see that Mr. Archbald shall settle upon them $20,000 on the day the wedding takes place." "Done!" cried John Warbeck. "1 want the use of my money during my lifetime; but at my death every penny 1 leave shall go to them." And so two months afterward Lucius aud Fannie were made man and wife, and began their matrimonial experience upon a handsome capital. The greater portion of this Lucius invested directly in accordance with tho advice of John Warbeck, who carried on a branch busi ness in Colorado, whither he had re turned. A great deal of money was made, and things wero going smoothly as could be wished, when poor Uncle John died. His will was eagerly opened, and it was found true to his word, that he had left Fannie everything. The fortune amounted to several hun dred dollars, which he had accumulated first by working as a clerk while he lived in New York with his affectionate sister, which was what occupied him all day so mysteriously, and second by acting as Lucius Jtallory's agent in Colorado after ward. Mrs. Archbald was naturally very indignant. She felt that she had been imposed upon; but this was not the case, for John Warbeck had fully cur ried out his bargain. Several hundred dollars you will find a very respectable sum of money if you happen to be in need, and tho amount is not accessible, but, after all, it is really not quite so magnificent a thing to con template as "A Cool Million."—New York World.
