There was not sufficient Industrial

The deduction Is obvious. Russia

is prepared to seize such territory in

her an uninterrupted land route from

One April morning a postman la

of Henry Swift in freu rural oHvery
No. 5 and, having deposited a letter,
drove on. A girl ten years old ran out,
with her hair flying, for the mail and,
opening the box. took out the letter
and read the superscription. As she
did so her eyes opened wide and she
exclaimed, dancing up sn,d down:

Without opening It she ran into the
house, crying: "I've got a letter! I've
got a letter!"
The family gathered round her, and
she broke open the envelope. The con
tents proved to be a piece of thick
brown paper and a letter. Folded in
the paper was a new crisp five dollar
bill.
"Oh, Dolly," exclaimed the child's
mother, "some one has made yon
present! Open the letter and see who
it Is from."
Dolly unfolded the letter and read:
; My Dear Little Niece Easter Is coming,
and I invariably give away a certain sum
on that day for soma charitable purpose.
This year I want you to give a portion of
my Eaeter offering for me to some need
ful person. Tour affectionate
UNCLB JOSH.
i Dolly's brothers and sisters turned
away somewhat disappointed that the
money had not been given her to spend
for herself, thinking that they might
have shared in what it would buy, but
to Dolly herself came a new sensation,
She was proud at having been made
the agent of her uncle for his donation
and much pleased to think that she
would make some one happy.
' But to whom should she give the
money ? There were many who needed
it indeed, so many that Dolly found
it a difficult matter to decide. But she
had a week before Easter came to de
cide, and she waa sure she could reach
a decision much earlier. Nevertheless
on the Saturday night before Caster
Sunday she had thought of so many
deserving cases, each needing the gift.
that she was bewildered.
i When Easter came it Brought With it
one of those hot, unseasonable temper
attires that sometimes occur in the
month of April. Dolly, dressed In her
prettiest spring clothes, with the bill
rolled in her uncle's letter, went out
on to the road to walk a mile to the
Tillage to give the money to a poor
woman with many children whom she
had finally chosen as the most needful
of all the persons she knew. But Dol
ly had changed her mind many times,
and her father said to her as she de
parted:
'i nope you won t meet some unde
serving' person on the wsy, Dol, and be
tempted to place your . Easter gift
where it will do no good."
Never fear, pappy." And the child
sallied forth. .
While walking along the road Dolly
suddenly stopped. Beside it in the
shade of some high bushes lay a boy
asleep. His clothes were ragged, his
face pale, and even in slumber there
was a hungry look on it Dolly's heart
was touched. If she hadn't decided
irrevocably as to where she would
place her gift she would bestow It
upon this poor boy. Then, too, she re
membered her father's caution. But
Dolly was young. The woman she
knew to be deserving was not present.
and one who evidently needed assist
ance wai before her. Moreover, there
is something touching in a suffering
slumberer.
Dolly succumbed to what was pres
ent. The palm of one of the boy's
hands was open, and she laid her an
cle's letter in it; then, going to the
other side of the road, she hid behind
'a fence in the high brush and waited to
observe the boy's surprise and pleas
ure when he should awake.
Ills awakening was occasioned by a
passing wagon, but he would have
slept again had he not seen what was
in his palm. Sitting up, he opened the
letter, and when' he saw the bill in
closed his eyes grew big. So did Dol
jly's, and every feature in her face,
every nerve, every muscle in her body,
was alive with delight.
the brief letter be bad written u
The recipient did not have the envel
ope in which the letter had come to
Dolly, so he did not know who "Dolly"
I was, but at the head of the letter was
jPrinted "Joshua Stamper & Co., Im
porters," with the street and number
jat which it had been written. More
over, the city was but a dozen miles
'distant, and the boy was on his way
there. .
Now, Dolly did not know what was
passing in the boy's mind. She saw
ihlrn look from the bill to the letter back
'from the letter to the bill. Then he
read the letter carefully and seemed to
be studying It. Finally be got up and.
putting both the letter and the bill In
his pocket, set off toward the city. j
Dolly went back home. Surprised to
see ber return so soon, the family gath
ered round her to learn the result of
ber mission. When she told them that,
she had bestowed her uncle's gift on a
rnccrwi rtov lvlnir salaon hrMr tha
road there was a universal cry of dis
appointment. Even her parents, who
supposed that the recipient was somo
farmer's boy who would not work, be
lieved that the Easter donation bad
gone astray. Tears came Into Dolly's
eyes, whereupon her father took her la
his arms and said:
-uont cry, dear heart Onlv the
Lord can tell when our gifts are well
placed."
On Monday mornlnr after Easter
bunday Joshua Stamper was sittlnir In
the office of his warehouse In the city
when he was told that a r acred bov
wished to see him. Mr. Stamper waa
easy of access, especially to persons of
low degree, for he was interested In
charitable work. He gay an order that
the boy Should ba admlttwt Th.
youngster, who was la his fifteenth
year, approached the merchant's desk
homing out a folded paper. Mr. Stam
per took It, opened it. and a five dollar
bill drorped on hi desk. Then, be read '
"Where did you get tbisr ha

and when I woke up I founa thkuT1

A curious but pleasant exw-
came Into the merchant's face,
conjuring up a picture of hl
niece dropping his gift Into the ?
hand. Whether she had rua.V'

Mr. Stamper handed the bill to tin

"You came to the city to get a sot).
"Yes, sir."
The merchant tapped a bell aai
called for his manager, whoa ae di
rected to set the boy to work, fat
clothing him properly and attendiar &
his other wsnts.
The next day Dolly when the pert
man had dropped some mall la the lot
went out for It and was surpriaed t
receive another letter addressed, aa be
fore. In her uncle's handwriting. Til
ing it Into the hoase, she opened ft t,
presence of tbe others and fonnfl h
closed a check for $100, payable to la
order. The letter said that he til
decided to give to charity anotka
amount through her, but ahe wu t
keep half of It for her own me. Tit
writer made no mention of his pnn.
ous gift or its result t
Ten years passed. Joshua Stamp
had given awsy a great deal of moot?
for charity, but It seemed the mot he
gave tbe richer he grew. Dolly meu
.wblle had grown to be a woman a&d
was made her uncle's agent In distrib
uting a large portion of his betiefie
tions. Shortly before the tenth Easter
since the one when he bad aent berth
five dollars he wrote that be would
spend tbe day at tbe farm and desired
ber to have ready a liat of all tbe poor
and deserving persons she knew, that
he might relieve their wants.
Before making this visit air. Stamper
called into his office a young nan
whom he had recently taken In as a
Junior partner and whom he Intended
to make his successor and said to him:
"Joe, you remember my letter to my
niece that was dropped in yoar bud
ten years ago?"
I certainly do, Mr. Stamper. Tm
not likely to forget it"
Well, you may get ready to go with
me on a visit I intend to mass on
Easter Sunday, and I will Introduce
you to Dolly, from whom you received
my gift at that time."
When Joseph Kimball was Intro
duced to Dolly Stamper she wu mr
prised at the expression ct Intense In
terest she saw on his face. Bnt ba
gave her no explanation of It Her
uncle gave her a check for $10,000 to
distribute among the families of whom
she had made a list, and yonng Kim
ball gave her $500 for the same par
pose. A pleasant day was spent by
the party, after which the two men
returned to the city.
The happenings of the next two
years must be condensed Into a fe
words. Kimball, who had resolved, if
possible, to win Dolly for his wife,
