idea. Grace ha learned to be eautious
about revealing her thoughts, and her
mother, being occupied with the prob
lem of feeding the lioa, failed to notice
the preliminary signs.
The distinguished guest arrived on
Wednesday. At recess time on Friday
afternoon Grace unfolded her plan to
a group of excited girls, while Tom, on
the other side of the school building,
was the center of a larger and still
more exeited group of boys.
"It's the chance of a lifetime," said
Grace. "You can't aford to miss it.
Remember the time. Admittance to
all parts of the grounds, two cents."
"Three o'clock sharp," Tom was say

play chess than eat. Oh, he'll be there
At a quarter to three the following
day a quiet, middle-aged man in
glasses seated himself beside a little
table upon the pleasant, vine-shaded
veranda of the Barker house, quite ob
livious to the fact that Grace, fiat on
her stomach in the grass, was printing
along the veranda rail, is large letters
with white chalk, the words: "The
greatest show on earth. Only two
A few moments later the patrons of
the show began to arrive in little
groups of two or three. Each child,
after paying two cents to TotW, whose
box ofice was discreetly sereenedfrom
his mother's view by the large white
rose bush near the gate, paused on the
lawn to game for awhile at the uncon
scions celebrity, who was intent upon
a chess problem.
After a proloanged stare, with mln
gled feelings of awe, respect and on
rioaity, and, above all, a desire to get
the fall worth of his or her money,
each child withdrew reluctantly to
ward the back yard. Here they were
received by Grace, who formed them
by twos, regardless of size, into a long
"Now wait here until I come back,"
said she, when apparently the last
child had arrived, "and mind you don't
make a sound. If you do," continued
Grace, who was born to command, "the
game is all p, and you lose your
money. Alittle noise would spoilt all.
I woa't be long."
"A few of my little friends," said
wily Grace, appearing upon the veara
da a moment later, "would be so glad
if you would shake hands with them.
They've heard such a lot about you."
This, thanks to Grace, was strictly
true, for she had talked of nothing but
the novelist for three whole days..
"What? What's that? Oh, shake
hands with your little friends? Yes,
of course," said the novelist, reluetant
ly putting a printed cheasproblem into
his pocket, and bringing himself back
with an effort to at evelyday world.
"Why, really, my dear, I am very much
touched. This. I the prettiest, and
probably the sincerest, compliment I
have ever reeeived."
The young conspirator had theasee
to blush at this, btt she did not allow
herself to waver. She realised that it.

SAwhile ago an Englishman, who all
his life has never been able to keep
his feet shod properly, suddenly came
into a large fortune. The frst thing
he did was to give an order for shoes
to several shoemakers, so arrangingit
that he could put on a new pair of
shoes every day in the year. How
often he had said to himself in his
years of poverty, when his toes were
sticking out of his shoes or the water
coming into them: "Oh, if I ever get
any money, won't I just blow myself
on shoes." The opportunity came, and
the first thing he did was to indulge in
an orgy of new shoes.
A miner who came into an unexpeet
ed fortune gave a great feast to his
workmates. Often when the miners
were eating the contents of their din
ner-pasls down in the dim galleries
of the mine he had thought of what a
feast he would like to spread there for
himself and his fellow workmen. So,
when he came into his fortune he had
une of the galleries of the mine lighted
and decorated, and a great and costly
feast served there to the miners, at
which he presided.

invited them to a famous feast, at
which all sorts of expensive luxuries
were served. When theguests reached
their homes each found an envelope
with $50 in it, and a note saying that
the money was to pay for a short va
eatlon. This generous man, unfortu
nately, died in want and misery not
long after receiving his windfall.
; A rather romanie way of spending
money was that adopted by the build

the River Esk. When poor he had the
greatest dihipnlty in meetinghis sweet

of the river, owing to the Eak often be

when distraught one day, registered a

manner he sufered. He became rich,
and fulltiled his vow by the erection of
the Beggar's bridge.
