8ueh was the epiHtle that I, Philip
Bretei, M.R of the city of Brotherly
Love, received one morning from my
old college ' chum and claeHmate,
Jolin BranHcombe,a bachelor, who lived

quaint little village iu the county of
New La^tle, in Delaware.

although he had given

and had nought to do hut enjoy it while
I, who had not been ho blnaaed by tbe

betaken my ho If to South America to
carve my fortune out in that line. Buc
cetiH had finally rewarded my tdlortH,

I had returned to my native city, where
I Htill continued a practicing disciple of
KHCulapits.
Although during thin time " nean be

never quite loaf night of each other, but
had kept up a regular < orreHpoudenco,
and merited aH much aM ever the naincH

Her« at a mock chriHtening—Dainou and
Pythian.
] bad been contemplating a visit to
my friend for nome time and was not at
all loath to accept bin cordial invitation.
Accordingly I wrote a note to that ef
fect, and on the day appointed 1 found
mynelf a paHncnger on the Houth-bouud
train for Darkewood. Here, an the
purple ahadown of eve were falling over
tbe quiet country, John met me, aud
after a abort drive we found ournelv
in hin " nanctuni" and an delighted to
nee one another an we were in the old
day* at Yale. t
After a hearty nupi>er, which I en
joyed with all the zent of a hungry
traveler, we again repaired to the
" sanctum" to indulge in a quiet chat
and a social pipe.
" Damon, thin reminds one of " old
times," don't it?" said John, content*

smile through the clouds.of smoke.
"What gay old larks we used to have

just twenty years ago. Bless urn, how
time goes ! At this rate you will soon
be able to remove your hat and show
'silver thre.'ulsamong the gold." '
"Possibly. But don't you think you
are mistaken in supposing that time
goes?" 1 suggested. "I think that time
mays, and we go; if this wer not true
then we were always young and we
would have no desire to stay the Meet
ing hours. But banished be all serious
thought ! Let us forget everything ex
cept, that, 'we are boys again, just
for to night."*
John chimed in with my mood and
for more than an hour we indulged in
reminiscences
frolics and adventures, and as we had
been " leading spirits " we bail plenty
to recall.
There is something strangely pleasant
to men who have passed the heyday

recess between the wide tire-place and
one of the long windows, a massive
maghogany secretary, whose solemn
front shone with the soft, rich lustre
peculiar to age and which I was anti
quarian enough to know was highly
prized.
"That is a fine piece of furniture,"
I remarked, nodding carelessly toward
it. " Is it a curiosity, or an old fam
ily relic."
John removed his pipe, stared at the
old secretary thoughtfully, replaced
that solacing article in his mouth again,
stared at me, and finally said :
i ,"No, it is not an heir loom, but there
is a very interesting story connected
with it tiiat I should like you to hear.
It was,iu fact,to acquaint you with it
that 1 seut you such an urgent invita
tion to visit me "
" While I flattered myself that it was
1 love alone' that had actuated you," 1
responded disgustedly. "If, however,
the story proves to be a good one, I'll
forgive you your deceptiou ; so try your
best."
" The story will, I think, prove
worthy of your attention," said John.
Aud as a prelude to the recital he re
quested me to fill my pipe afresh, per
forming the Name office for himself,
then remarking,as he leaned back in bis
chair and emitted a cloud of odorous
smoke from his lips: "What an im
mense amount of comfort is to be de

and admiration, and have often reflect

spirit land where 1 shall he able
to render him all ' homage due.'
"Kindred souls in sweet commu

blue smoke ascended, curled and broke

Three years ago, while in 1 hi lad el- UQ

buy an easy chair,the one you are occu
pying. Having concluded the purchase hH
and arrangement as to how it was to be for
delivered,I was turning to depart,when
my eye happened to rest upon an an-.
tique mahogany secretary. It struck | j,
my fancy at once, and 1 inquired if it«
was for sale. The dealer said yen, ' ^
aud further more informed me that be
had purchased it at tbe sale of the per
sonal effects of an old gentleman,ashort
while before. It, did not take me long
to include this second purchase, aud iu
a few days the chair aud secretary
were placed where you now behold
them.
As you are doubtless aware, many
old articl'd of furniture used as recep
tacles of any kind contain secret re

hood as ho hatl vuninhed, I sprang
from my neat aud started toward the

May, who had come to give me her uhu
al good night kiss.
" Why uncle," Hhe cried, " you have
broken your pipe," pointing to the
fragnituts lying on the carpet beside
the chair where I bad unconsciously
dropped it.
] hiistily kissed May and went out in
to the hall to detect if possible some
sign of my ht. range visitor. The main
entrance was barred on the inside; it
was impossible for biin to have entered
by that. Nevertheless I unbolted the door
and went out on the veranda. A bright,
full moon was riding high iu the cloud
less sky, and in its silvery radiance,
objects were plainly perceptible, but
not the object I sought. Retracing my
steps, 1 made a thorough investigation
of every part of the bouse, but found
neither the old man of my quest or the
slightest sign of hi.s presence. 1 then
questioned my sister aud the servants,
but they had neither seen or heard a
caller answering to my description.

For a while I couM ■ iy hold it in
my baud aud stare at ? in blank bewil
derment ; but finally 1 recovered my
senses sufficiently to p* n and read it.
It proved to be "Urn Ust will and

While I sat pondering over the mys
' i.■ timly found document it suddenly
(MTurrtxl to me that in the " Public
Ledger," a short while before, I had
read an aiUertiaeiuent—which 1 had
thought Hingular at the time, for a lost
will. Having hunted the paper 1 wank'd
from among the others on tile, I turned
to the column of "Lost and Found,"
and among the advertisements read
this:
"A liberal reward will be given for
any information that will lead to the
recovery of the will of the late Mark
Warrene. Any one able to give thede
sired information, will please call
M. M., Attorney at Law, Walnut
Htreet, Philadelphia."
As you may suppose very little sleep
visited my pillow that night. My brain
was too excited to admit Hound,
broken rest, and even the short naps 1
at intervals indulged in were haunted
hv dreams in which oM men, wills ami
secret recesses were grotesquely ming
led. As the first rays of the morn
ing sun shone through my window
blinds I was up ami dressed aud on the
first train, that left my station for Phila
delphia, 1 was a passenger.
Having reached the city, 1 imme
diately went in search of Mr. M. I had
little or no difficulty in finding his
office, as he is quite a prominent
lawyer, and after some little delay was
admitted to hin presence.
1 introduced myself aud the object of
my visit by saying: "My name is
Bran scorn be, and I have called in refer
ence to a will, which was advertised
for by you in the * Public Ledger.'"
Mr. M. who was a small, wiry and
somewhat excitable person, sprang
from his chair and cried : " You have!
that is indeed news worth hearing—
