Even the window curtains had to be let down; then lie had himselt carried to his iron safe. From nn insidedrawer lie took the securities and had them counted.

"To the count as a penny to us," added the woman. fhe secretary ot the count was re ceived the next day with a remark that the broker had gone away on a a journey. Nobody knew where, or when he would return. Th» secretary returned several times to look lor him, but « lien lie heard that in real ity the broker was in his room on his death-bed he came no more.
