; Dick," said his aunt "I think you
ure making a mistake In not marrying
Jenny now.,. Start In with what you
have and it will grow." ( i , ' ' ;
Dick Larramore was very much lm
pressed with his aunt's advice. He
talked with Jenny about It and they
agreed that they' would make a be
ginning at once. Together they could
raise $75, and they knew of a cottage
they could get for. $20 ' month. They
fixed a date for their wedding : and
began to hunt for furniture that they
could pick up af small cost '
' One day Dick heard of an ; auction
sale 'of household goods that was to
take place in a neighboring village and
concluded' to go over and see if he
could 'get anything that would help
him and Jenny at their housekeeping.
He bought a dining table for $4 and
a sldeboa'rd for $0. Among other
things put up for sale , was a basket
full of shells, eggs and other oddities.
Dick bad always taketr great Interest
In' curious things and had'' quit a col

Melted bla ' curiosity, no bad never
seen eggs of that size or. shape, lie
forgot far the tlin Leifig thatba eeod
d furniture and DcganTo'TItf on the !
basket of curios. An old woman seem
ed to covet then.- and bid against him
till she had raised her offer to 87. Dick
bid $7.25, and the basket was knocked
down to him.
That brought him to his senses. lie
had Invested about one-tenth of all
bo bad to spend for furniture In a
basket of worthless trinkets. : He was
so disgusted with himself that he left
the auction and drove home, : .
The boldest thing he bad ever thus
far done was facing Jenny, showing
her, among his purchases, the basket
"Why, Dick!" she exclaimed when
she saw the latter.
Dick hung bla bead.
"They'll make a nice ornament for
our sitting room," said the girl, seeing
by Dick's rueful appearance that he
regretted his purchase as much as she
did, and. putting her arms around his
neck, she gave him a kiss.
"W hat big eggs those are!" she said.
"What bird laid tbemr
"I don't know." said Dick, "and I
don't care." ' ' :,. .
"We'll ask Professor Drummond."
Jenny showed Professor Drummond
the eggs, and he pronounced them
auk's eggs. ,:.;'.,.
"What's an aukf asked Jenny.
' "Alcldae swimming birds with a
pointed bill, very short wings and legs
placed very far - back. Penqulns be
long to the alcldae family. I'm not
sure." he continued, eramlnlnor v th

the great auk"; t ' .
"Is the great auk superior to the
rest?" asked Jenny.
"In one respect. They are extreme
ly rare. Indeed, I think they are ex
tinct" 1; , ';
"If they are extinct how came these
eggs to be In cxlstencer . ; '
' "They must have been procured be
fore the bird's extinction. At any rate,
they are great curiosities. They must
be very valuable." ,
Jenny's heart leaped for Joy. Per
haps they could sell them for wbat
Dick gave for them. This would re
lieve bis mind, . and tUy could buy
some kitchen utensils she needed.'
"Do you think, professor," she asked,
"that we could get as much as $7.25
for them r : ' v
The professor smiled.. "If they are
great auk's eggs," he replied, "you can
get more than a hundred times $7.23."
Jenny opened her eyes. . ,
"I would advise you to put them
away carefully. I will bring Profess
or Wilson, the naturalist to see them.
He will settle the question whether
they are great auk s eggs or not:
; Jenny put the eggs away" It was all
she could do to keep from telling Dick
what the professor had Bald, but she
shrank from raising her lover's ex
pectations to have them blighted, so
she kept her secret and the next day
the two professors called, looked at
the eggs, and Professor .Wilson pro
nounced the eggs those of the great
auk. He gave their value at about a
thousand dollars each. . He agreed to
send a man who would offer for them
all they were worth except a fair
profit' .;., .:'''-."'
Jenny kept her secret In fine style,
though she said, "Heaven knows wbat
a struggle I bave to do so!" One night
when Dick came to see her she said to
him:'1, "' " -' v :". ;':..' r '. ;
"Dick, you know what a poor busi
ness man you showed yourself In buy
ing that basket of trinkets." , ; ,
"Please bury that matter."
"Well, since you were so stupid as
to buy those things I think I had bet
ter sell them for you, -;l've sold the
two big eggs already."
"Yes. I got a good price for them." '
"How ortchr", ' r ; ,' :
"Two thousand dollars." ; ; '. ,
"Stop your nonsense and tell me."
Jenny drew a check for $2,000 and
tried to show it to him, but her, feel
ings overcame her, and, throwing her
arms around, his neck,' 'he ' oould ' see
nothlng'at aIUv:'"' r'-" ry. ',)':-'
