A SILFNT PARTNER,
Mr. Timothy Foley broke bit leg ly railing Ot) the icy pave-j ot, a nd an hour later lie was id the hospital. The emporium! was left hi charge of Mrs. Foley i and ber young son. William, i wiio was i gbt years old. Tli' U bad helped dellvei ' papers, .1 nov thai Ills father vms liu the I ispltal hi' found that he could 1 1 1 get the dailies to every house in time lor; breakfast. The hanker who lived it; the big house, ami the; dry good merchant who had a borne on tin- avenue, and the diamond dealer who went early every morning to business, said tbat tli' y really must have I lie 1 r papers on time, and as there were several mornings when they .had to get 10 the train without any they told another newsdealer to bring them. The trade. ot the Foley emporium was becoming less every day, and when things were at their worst the landlord came for his rent. "You owe two mouths' rent.'' said Mr. Biggs. Yes. 1 but altbougb we are slow, you will get it very soon, for within two weeks Timothy will be'out again, and with his hand at the. helm we will steer, in the old way." Enough of such talk."! growled Mr. Biggs. "I am a man of business, and unless you pay you will have to get out; I that's all." William Foley, when the landlord had gone, took his hat down from the peg and said he WOUld be back In au hour. t He boarded a street car and I went down town to where the j big cathedral raised Us twin 6pires. Hack of the church was a house tof marble. The boy ran; the bell, and John, who bad been the butler lor many years, opened the door. vl came to see the Arch bis bop,': said the boy, and I must see him at once, for it is very important." IlisKirace is too busy to see you," answered John. "'You tad better goto the house of the priests next door."' "No, that won't do," said the boy; "it is something very spec ial, and if the Archbishop had a chance to see me " "He lias it now," said a voice. "It is a matter of business," 6aid the boy. "Come up to my study," said the Archbishop, for it was he, and we will talk it over." "Now, then," asked the Arch bishop, when they were alone upstairs, "what can I do for vnnV" j "It's this way," said William. "My father has broken his leg and can't attend to his news stand. He is in the hospital, and mother and I are doing the best we can, but we can't get all the papers around on time in the morning, irome of the customers are leaving us. We are too months behind in our rent, and the landlord says that we had better go, as he can rent his store for ten dol lars more a month. Now, if we could borrow the money we could pay it back after father got out, for he can mane money fast when he is able to get aroii' d." Your father la in the bospil air1 asked tlx; Archbishop "Yes," replied the boy." "We will go and see him." said the A rCllblsbop. A lew minutes later tile Arch bishop and the boy reached the hospital, where his OraCe had a long talk w'n h Timothy Foley. The Archbishop then went uptown to the Foley News Km portum and sent for the land lord. "Mr. Biggs," said he, ,-l hear that you are going to trn us out of doors." Mr. Bigga looked at him in surpri se. "1 hope you won't do it.'" added the Archbishop. I am a silent partner in this news stand, and I am sorry to say that I have been so busy lately that I haven't had time to de vote as much attention to it as L wished. It's two months' rent we owe, is it not?" The Archoishop paid the rent and Mr. Biggs, who was so puzzled that he did not know what to say or what to do. gave a receipt for the money and went his way. "Now, then, about the pa pers," said the Archbishop. "We shall have to arrange that a little better. I know one of the altar boys who will be glad to come and help you out. "I'll send him here to morrow morn ing. We must get those cus tomers back. Let me see. Sup pose we write a letter." The Archbishop sat dowu at the desk and wrote a letter, which was afterward type written. Copies were sent to the houses of the customers who had quit buying papers at the emporium. This is what the Archbishop wrote. A C A1U3 TO OtJH OUSTOKRBS.
