"1 ought to foel happy, I suppose," said the young man, a littlo ruofully, "for T ve just received notice of a legacy." "Indeed, I congratulate you." Wait till yon hear what it la." . "'Well, what Is it?" "My Aunt Martha hns just died, leav ing fifty thousand dollars." "To you? I congratulate you heartily." No; (the leaves it to a rrablio Institu tion. She leaves mo only her silver watch, which she nas carneu ror loriy rears." "How Is thutf" - - "She didn't approve of my becoming an artist. She wished mo to be a mer chant. If I had consulted her wishes I should, doubtless, have been her sole heir. This 6mall legacy is meant more as an aggravation than anything else." "But you can make your own way." "I can earn a scanty living at present. I hope to do hotter by and by. But you know my admiration for Mary Brooks if 1 had been Aunt Martha's solo heir I could have gained her father's consent to our marriage. Now it is hopeless." "I am not so suro of that. This legacy may help you." "An old watch? You are joking." "Not if you will strictly observe my directions." . "What are they?" "Simply this: Agree for one calendar month not to mention or convey tho least idea of tho nature of your aunt's bequest. 1 will manage tho rest." "I don't at all know what you mean, Bowles," said the young artist; "but I am in your hands." "That is all I wish. Now, remember to express surprise at nothing; but let matters take their course." "Very well." In the next issue of The Glenville Courant tho young artist was surprised to read the following paragraph: Wo are gratified to rocurtl a piece of eiod luck which Uaa Jut befallen our esteemed fellow ciU ten, the promising young artist, Charloa Eamc-a. By the will of an aunt, recently deceased, lie cornea Into posaeaslon of a pleco of property which lias been In tho family for many year Miaa Earnest la reported to havo left fifty thousand dollars. "Really," thought the young man, "anybody wonld naturally suppose from this paragraph that 1 had inherited my unfa entire property." He put on his hat and walked down tho street He met Ezekiel Brooks, presi dent of the Glenville National bank. Mr. Brooks beamed with cordiality. "My dear sir, permit me to congratu late you," he said. You have read The Couranti" said Eames. "Yes; and 1 am delighted to hear of your good fortune. Can I speak to you on business a moment?" "fWtjaiiilv. Mr. Brooks. -Vnii'll r nui my advice, but I know you ar not a businc&s man, while I am. . My young man, da you want to maka) 1 some money? 1 "Certainly, I should be glad to do so.

It may go down, but it won t I har avlrio-a that a f-"Zy rise in almot certain. Cay hiia cut. and j-oa"3 iik a handjotD thin of it" "But how shall I find the money?" "Of course you huvon't rocolved your legacy yet I know thcro are delays. No trouble about that Uivo your not on ninety days, and I'll indorso it You'll sell out before that time at a handsome advance." "I will place myself tn your hands, Mr. Brooks, but you must umnngo the businoBs." "Certainly, I shall only want your signature when the documents are made out By the by, come round and dine with us, or have you another engage ment?" Another engagement! If Eames had had fifty engagements he would have broken them all for the privilege o( meeting Mary Brooks. This was the first time he had been invited to the cap italist's table. The fact is, nntll this morning Mr. Brooks had scarcoly vouch safed him more thuu a cool nod on meot- Ihk; but had changed, or apwored to, and his behavior altored with it Such Is the way of tho world! : .. It whs a very pleasant dinner. Thet young artist remained afterwards. 1 "1 have an engagement, Mr. Eames," said Mr. Brooks; "a meeting of the bank directors; but yoa mustn't go away. Mary will entertain you." The young man did not go away, and apparently was satisfied by the enter tainment he received. He blessed his aunt for her legacy, if only It had pro cored him tbiH afternoon's interview with the yottng lady he had admired. But it gained him more. Every four days he received a similar Invitation. He could not fail to see that Ezekiel Brooks looked with evident complacency on the good understanding between his daughter and hinisoir. "What will he say?" thought tlie young man, "when ho finds out what sort of a leiracv I have received from my aunt?" Occasionally, too, ho felt nervous about hia hasty assent to the proposition to buy five hundred shares of railroad stock, at fifty-six, when he hadn't fifty dollars ahead. , He reckoned up ono day what his purchase would amount t6, and his breath was nearly tuiten away wicn ne found it amounted to twenty-eight thou sand dollars! Still, it had been in a manner forced npon him. He asked no questions, but every now and then the old gentleman said: "All. going well! Stock advnncintr rapidly. With that he was content. Indeed, he was so carried away by love of Mary Brooks that he gave little thought to anv other subject One day Mr. Brooks came up, his face beanpug with joy. "Wish vou joy, Eames," he said. "Wimbledon's gone up liko a rocket to par. Give mo authority and 1 11 sell out for vou." The artist did so, hardly realizing what it meant till, three days after, he re ceived a little note to tlsia effect: Deaii EAMKsUttvo aoltl out your nVe hundred almros of Wimbledon at 101. Bo you bought at 68. This givoH you a clear proHt of 84S per Bliare, or SiiS.SOJ. You had better taKo lite rue anu rein vest your surplus. Cull at iny otTlce at once. Yours very truly, Ezukiiii. DnooKS. ' Charles Eames read this letter throe times before he could realize its mean ing. Could It be that without investing a cent he had unido over 820,000? It uiuat be a dream, he thought. But when ho called at the old gPntle- man's office ho found it was really truo. "Mr. Eames, how about this money? Shall I reinvent it for your . "Thank you, sir. I wish you would. I should like a little in hand, however." "Certainly. Will that answer?" and the old gontlomau wrote a check for $300 and placed it in the young man's hand. . It was more money than he had ever before possessed at one time. This was convincing proof of tho reality of .hia good fortune Tho next day he wont to the city and ordered a handsome suit of clothes at a fashionable tailor's. The fact was his old coat was getting threadbare and his overcoat decidedly seedy. While ho was about it ho bought a new coat and boots, as well as other ucedod articles, and still returned with monoy enough in his pocket to make him foci rich. He changod his boarding house, engaging a handsome room at a much nicer place. "It seems to me you are datdiing ont, Eames," said his friend tho editor. "You know I've had a legacy," said Eames. hinchinrr. ' 1 "I begin to think you havo," said the editor. When Eames appeared on tho street in his new suit it was u confirmation of the news of his inheritance. His removal to a fashionablo boarding homo was addi tional confirmation. It wan wonderful how he rose in the estimation of people who had before looked upon him as a shiftless artist All at once it occurred to him, "Why shouldn't I propose for Mary Brooks? With twenty thousand dollars I could certainly support her comfortably. There was a very pretty cottago, and tasteful grounds, for sale at five thou sand dollars. This would mako a cl tann ing home." One morning, with considerable trepi dation, young Eames broached tho sub ject to Mr. Brooks. "No one I should liko Ix-ttcr for a son-in-law, if Mary is willing," was the prompt answer. Mary waa willing, and as there seemed no good reason for waiting, the marriage took place within a few weeks. "Charles," said his father-in-law, af tr the young people returned from tbeir wedding journey, "it Is time f ar tne to render you an account of your money af fairs.

' An interesting story is told of Mr. Ar mour's early life. IIo recently met in a business way, qnife by accident, an old friend of his youth. "After tho greeting, which was the rimt for twenty years, he exclaimed at oncu to tho gentleman: "I say, what hns become of tho girl who used to visit our shop? Yon remember her that charming blondo, Miss Blank?" The old friend siiylod as he replied: "Oh, she's married and got a big family." "Whom did sho many?" domanded Ar mour. "She married a teamster named Bill Brown you must remember him." "What has become of him?" "Oh, he is teaming yet," was tho reply, ' Tho 'gentleman -who relates this inci dent afterward , observed to a friend; "What a littlo event may change- tho whole corn-no of a girl's life!'

In fabrics and in colors all sorts and conditions of women aro cnterod to, and all tones, from the faintest to the ' deepest, ' are ' doftly wrought out so that tho particular shade that' the wiac woman fiuds becoming tq her can be gotten without any trouble. Thero nro plttin colors for a woman who likeg stuffs that are not conspicuous. Thero are spots big mid little, plaids bias and straight and stripes of all widths and kinds. Bo a littlo careful in choos ing your colors, and remember that be cause somebody tells you how well you look in a costumo of navy bluo you niut:t not conclndo that every blue shado is suited to you, for that extremely trying but very beautiful one known as winy makes the nvcrago woman's complexion- look as yellow as a lemon. ' Because scarlet makes yonr hair look warmer aud gives a deeper color to your eyes, it does not follow that mageuU is suited to you. General rnles do not up1 ply to wonipn who aro nothing if not In dividual. Soinubody says , that small bonnots are universally becoming, and you, whose face U rather broad, whose noso i3 a bit retronsso, put 'one on : and boliove you look well. A bonnet, more than anything else, needs to be tried on, and although ono may generalize and say bonnets are ladylike it can no more be asserted that boaneU are always be coming than it could be that all women are good figures. Ho just think out things before you choose them. Mrs. Mallon in Ladies' Home Journal it at AlravMt rwrgottea Jallnatrea.
