A SILFNT PARTNER,
Mr. Timothy Foley broke bit

the hospital. The emporium!
was left hi charge of Mrs. Foley i
and ber young son. William, i

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
"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
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

ran; the bell, and John, who
bad been the butler lor many
years, opened the door.

must see him at once, for it is
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
"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
Your father la in the bospil

"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
"Mr. Biggs," said he, ,-l hear
that you are going to trn us
out of doors."
Mr. Bigga looked at him in
"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.

The letter which the Arch
bishop wrote caused many per
sous to buy their papers again
at the emporium. Mr. Biggs
told everybody he kuew that
the Archbishop was a friend of
the Foley family, and the trade
iucreased so much that when
Timothy Foley came out of the
