It was some such razing jolt as this that was given me on the morning when I was called in, with the other members of the family, to listen to the reading of my grandfather's will. But, first, however, to give some idea of the conditions precedent, as a lawyer would say. My father good, comfort-lovinDad ! never owned what Grandfather Dudley, pursing his thin lip and snapping the words out, called "the money sense."

Without work, I mean. I may as well confess. at once, that I had neTer acquired the work habit. I was always "going to," but It was so fatally easy to keep on postponing the chilling plunge. I suppose I had been ready on at least half a dozen occasions to take a dive into some pool with a salary attachment; hut always some good friend would bob up to say, "Oh, come on, Stannle, dd man; we're lacking just one more to make up the hunch. Don't be a dam. Time enough to settle down when you have to," and then It would "Whatever will you do?" she faltered.

"You can wear It on some other finger, you know." "Yes; I suppose I could do that," she agreed ; and I'm blest if she didn't shift It to a finger of the other hand right there and then! It was less than a week after this scene with Lisette that little fade-ou- t Percy's letter came. This Is what it said: "Dear Stannle: "I know just about how you felt last week when you heard Grandfather Jasper's will read, and It Isn't going to make you feel any better now when I tell you that I knew of its provisions more than a year ago. When the will was drawn, grandfather showed it to me, and gave me a sealed envelope, which I was to open after his death. That envelope, as I knew at the time, contained, among other things, a codicil to the will. By its provisions you are to receive a legacy under certain conditions which were to be revealed to you at such time as I might think best.

Anyway, a r or so after I had said good-h- y to Lisette I met Jack Downing; and when he asked me If I didn't want to go with him and a bunch of the fellows for a little spin down the coast of Maine In his motor cruiser, I fell for the invitation so suddenly that he hadn't a ghost of a chance to back out, If he had wanted to. So, a few hours beyond that touching little scene at "The Itockerie," you may figure me, if you please, spinning the wheel of one of the nattiest little boats on the North shore, with a fresh nor'easter blowing and the sea getting up to give me the time of my young life to hold the Guinevere to her course, nor' nor'east, half a point east, as we lifted the Shoals on our port In love-dreahalf-hou- away before you could get back to Boston.

I haven't enough, as you know." "I know only too well that the idea has never appealed to you," I said, with the regretful stop pulled all the way out in deference to the sentimental decencies.

"Far be it from me," I laughed; "nothing so useful as that." "I didn't know," lie hastened to say, half apologetically. "I saw you studying maps as we came along." Now, ordinarily I'm apt to talk a lot too much about my own affairs I'll admit it; but this was one time when I had a sort of hunch not to. So I merely said : "I saw you doing the same thing." "Sure you did," lie admitted cheerfully. Then he told me his name which I got as Bullton, or Bulletin, or something like that and said he was a mining engineer, which was the reason why he had asked me if I wasn't one. Past that, the talk ran mostly upon his profession, and since the mysterious huncli was still nudging me, I let him have the floor, so to speak, figuring chiefly myself,as a good listener. "Yes; we do run across some rather queer propositions in our trade," he said, after he had given me some sort of an idea of what a mining engineer's Job is like. "In my own experience, for example, the only sure shot I have ever had or possibly ever will have got away from me." It was up to me to bite, and, of course, I did it. "How was that?" "The man died," he replied laconically. That sounded rather Interesting, so I gave him another pinch.

Its action is fraught with great significance, as it is expected to develop for the first time the real attitude of Eamon de Valera and his counsellors toward the treaty on which the republican leader has thus far steadfastly refused to comment.

A lot of news than bad, and many of the criminal episodes of this era are sordid and brutal, without a touch of that mystery that makes a criminal affair interesting. But the newspapers have no option when it comes to printing this news. It is a part of the phenomena of an unusual and perhaps very important period in American history. We who are living in the midst of it may realize but dimly the importance of what is taking place, but unless all the facts are given to the public there may be no hope of betterment. That in the end the whole thing will lead to a determined and successful movement for the improvement of criminal justice in America, the Evening Post believes and hopes. Louisville Post.
