A rich nud distinguished relative Is by uo moans an unmixed blessing. When I wrote my name in tlie matricu . latlon book at the university, the rector raised bis eyebrows and. said: "Ah! A relative of his excellency, ! suppose." "Yes." "And yet you wish to t.:Ue advan tage of the free scholarships?" "It is necessary, unfortunately?for the present :it least." Thus 1 began under unfavorable auspices. 1 had all the notoriety at taching to diKtin?;ilslu'd connection, with none of its advantages, for I was poor as a church mouse. My comrades pointed me out to their friends, saying: "He's old Teleky's cousin, you know. He'll have a pile when the old. boy pegs out." This sort of thing worried me. There was one compensation, however. My name and presumptive wealth procur ed me the favor of young ladies and their mammas, and for several seasons I basked in the smiles of beauty. My whole famlly? with all its branch es?there must have been a score of persons all told?had, like myself, been waiting for the future-dead man's shoes until they had become almost barefoot. My cousin in the beginning had been nearly as poor as the rest. He owed his advancement aud his wealth to his rare political abilities. He had been a professional politician all his life. Now he was called a statesman. He gave evidence of. Ills tnleut In boyhood. The neighbors' boys used to rob liis father's orchard. Onq_ day my cousin armed himself with a knife and a big medicine bottle with a poison label. He went to the orchard, where. In full view of some of the suspected pilferers, he made small incisions in a number of the most tempting apples and poured a few drops from the l>ot tle Into each incision. Some of the boys asked him what he was doing. He responded that whoever ate those apples wouldn't care for apples there after. Thenceforth the apples remain ed undisturbed. The bulk of his wealth came to him through a lucky chance while he was private secretary to a certain high functionary. A rich banker applied to the official for a concession, backing his applica tion with urguments of the . most weighty and convincing character. But the law. unfortunately, stipulat ed that the holder of the concession must be a Hungarian, which the bank er was not. "It can be arranged." said the dis penser of patronage. "Tou^have a daughter. I believe?" "Yes." "Well, all you have to do Is to marry her to a Hungarian as soon as possi ble. Then you can take the concession in her name? Hint Is. in her husband's." At that mcment my cousin entered. "Here Is the man for you." said his chicf. "My secretary Is a Hungarian of good family and amenable to reason. Teleky. allow me ~to present yon to your futu#e father-in-law." The banker looked at the handsome young Hungarian, and the bargain was struck, the lady Interposing no objec tion. We never profited one stiver by my cousin's greatness. In late years in deed he l>ad shown the greatest ani mosity toward the whole family. Some of the affiliated branches who were poorer anil prouder than the Telekya themselves murmured loudly, and It was their complaints, the Telekys In sisted. that had hardened the great man's heart. On the other hand, these relatives Insisted that It was all our fault, and so a family dissension was added to our other mortifleations. But in Hungary every tiling can be converted into cash?even expectations. We had no legal claim on our cousin's estate, bat we found plenty of usurers willing to take long chances. This was carried on to such an ex tent that the wit of?the family said he hoped "the old man" wonld never die, as things were going on most com fortably as they were, and when the crash should come It would take the assets of a Botbsehj^^to meet the out standing liabilities. The old man did die. however, while I wa# still at the university. He was HI for a long time, and the newspapers were full of reports regarding him. They said, among other things, that the bulk of his Immense fortune would ?o to the Budapest almshouse, but that every relative who should appear nt the funeral would receive a .respecta ble bequest. And, as a matter of fact, on the day after the old man s death received a formal invitation to the funeral from his confidential factotum who added a hint that my future finan cial welfare would depend largely up on my presence or absence. Of course I wont. It was my first visit to the capital, but I had no diffi culty in finding my late cousiu's town residence, which was in a large apart ment house. A hearse anil carriage stood before the door when I arrived, and a great crowd of idlers had collected to see what they could of the distinguished j man's funeral. I saw none of my rela-1 t',e3 among the few people who were entering, and I blamed myself for be ing the last to arrive. .lust then two ladies entered. They were richly dressed, but entirely its black, nnd they held handkerchiefs to their eyes, from which tears were streaming. I followed them to an apartment on the second tloor. where we found a goodly company of ladies and gentlemen, many of whom seemed ns deeply affected as the two ladles who had just arrived. There could be no doubt of the genu ineness of their grief. Their eyes were red nnd swollen, as 1f from pro longed weeping, and their handker chiefs were used constantly. Still I saw none of my numerous rel atives. Evidently they were all in the Inner room, where the funeral no doubt was already In progress, while I was cocllng my heels with the out siders in tiie anteroom. A sad faced domestic, clad wholly in black, stood at the door leading to the inner room. I approached him and en deavored to explain my couneetlon with the dead man, but he cut me short at the first word. "Not yet," lie said. "It Is not yet time. You must wait." I waited. After a time one of my companions rose and approached the Inner door, which was opened obse quiously Jjy the flunky. In a little while another did the same. When three or four thus had passed behind the mysterious door. I made the nt tempt myself, but was waved back Imperiously by the sad faced servant. I continued to wait, repeating the at tempt at Intervals without success. After I had waited some hours I dis covered that each person before he left his seat received an almost Impercepti ble sign of invitation from the servant. I waited until nightfall, but no such invitation came to me. Then my wrath rose, and I went to the door again. "It is not yet your turn, sir," said the man of mysttuy. Turn! What sort of funeral was my distinguished cousin having. I won dered. "See here, my man," I said, "do you know who I am?'1 "I do not, sir, but It can make no" I am I' ransc Teleky, your deceased master's cousin.'" I thundered. The man's face relaxed Into n grin. "Deceased master?" he said. "Tel eky? Ho. ho! Ha. ha! The Teleky funeral, my dear sir', was on the floor below. It has been over for hours now. This Is the oculist's ofllce!" I went back to the university, curs ing myself for n fool and bitterly envy ing my fortunate relatives?to say nothing of the almshouse. The next day's papers had a full ac count of the funeral and the reading of the will. "Franz Teleky. a cousin of the deceased." they said, "was the on ly relative absent." The will was found to agree with the forecast of its contents, which hod been printed and which had been given to the papers (I learned afterward) by the old man's order. About a quarter of the estate was divided equally among the relatives who attended the funeral, and the remainder went to the almshouse. But then the lawyer read a codicil of recent date nnd In the handwriting of the deceased mau. It ran ns fol lows: "As I am well acquainted with the grasping character of my relatives I feel certain that not one of them will fail to attend my funeral if he thinks he can make anything thereby. Never theless It is my whim to order that if any one of said relatives shall absent himself from said funeral said rela tive. In consideration of the Independ ence of. character manifested in such action, shall become my residuary1 If a Woman wants to put out a fire she doesn't heap on oil and wood.
