"Waiter, call a cab."
So spoke Walter De Forest while
sitting in the cafe of his club. In a
few minutes the waiter announced that
the cab was at the door. De Forest
went out, gave a street and number to
the cabman and got Into the cab.
There, before him on the seat, lay a
Ah," exclaimed De Forest, "some
one has lost something."
Taking up the package, he opened It
and saw on the top a bank, bill for
$1,000. : He opened his eyes very wide.
Lifting the bill, he came upon another
for the same amount. He opened his
eyes wider. Fifty bills, each for $1,000.
were in the parcel.
He looked at the wrapper. There
was neither name nor mark on It to
give the slightest clew to its owner
ship. He tied up the package and put
it In hia pocket. On reaching his des
tination he said to the driver:
"Who was the last person In this cab
"A young lady, sir."
"I don't 'know, sir."
"Where did she engage you?"
"She called me from the sidewalk."
"Where did she tell you to drive?"
"To 84 Union street."
Mr. De Forest started. "Did you
take her there?"
No, sir. A pair of horses were
plunging in the crowd of rehicles be
side us. I drove on. but when I got
down to open the door there was no
one inside. - I think the lady got scared
and slipped out."
Did you go to the location she gave
you to collect your fare?"
"Not yet. sir."
"How much does she owe you?"
"Here It Is. I know the lady. I'll
"Thank you, sir."
The coincidence was a strange one.
Julia Drayton, aged twenty-one, that
day had been paid in bills a legacy of
$50,000. She had stepped from a bank
to the sidewalk, got into a cab, suf
fered from a fright, jumped out and
left her fortune Inside. Walter De
Forest was an admirer' of hers and
had at the time made up his mind that
he would marry her If he could. Mon?
ey was no special object to him.
The next morning he saw an adver
tisement in the papers of a large re
ward for the lost money. In the even
ing he called on : Miss Drayton. The
servant who received him said that
her mistress was indisposed.
"Tell her that I have called to speak
to her about her loss," said De Forest,
and in a few moments Miss Drayton
came down. She was much agitated.
I saw an advertisement this morn
ing," he said, "which from its reading
I think must be yours."
"I have lost my inheritance."
De Forest asked her to tell him the
story, which she did.
"I am very sorry for you," he said
when she had finished, indeed so
sorry that I am going to exercise my
ingenuity to find who has the bills.

tion, and if it succeeds I shall recover
"All of it?" she. gasped.
"All or none."
"But there is the reward."
"That we may talk of after getting
Mr. e Forest called often to report
progress. Miss Drayton begged mm
to tell her of his methods, but he as
sured her it was not best Though at
times he spoke encouragingly and at
times the reverse, he continually kept
her up by a steadfast hope.
One evening De Forest left the young
lady conscious of the fact that he
might as well bring his detective in
vestigations to a close. - A few days
later he showed Miss Drayton a piece
of paper on which was scrawled by
some illiterate person an agreement to
return fifty $1,000 bank bills provided
that immunity were guaranteed. Miss
Drayton caught her breath. But De
Forest reminded her of the many
frauds in . such matters and warned
her not to feel too sure. Nevertheless
she wrung his hand.- - 1
A week passed, during which Miss
Dravton suffered alternate chills and
fever chills of despondency, and fever
of hope. And all the while she was
thinking of that good, kind man who
was devoting his time, his . energies,
his genius, for investigation to the re
turn of her lost fortune.
One day she received a note from
De Forest notifying her that if her
doorbell rang between, 7 and 8 that
evening she would do well to answer
It herself. At a quarter to 8 the bell
rang. Miss Drayton opened the door.
A man in working clothes handed her
a package and without a word hurried
away. , Turning to the light, she opened
the package and saw her lost bills,
Counting them, she found all she had
She was still In a delirium of joy
when the bell rang again. She flew
to the door and admitted Mr. De For
est. She could not control herself.
Throwing her arms around his neck,
she wept for joy. -
There was one and only one matter
to be settled between them. That was
Mr. De Forest's reward for his patient
labors." Miss Drayton asked him to
name it and it should be his.
Then he- told her that the1 reward he
had been working for was herself.
She kept her word.
Young Spreckels, Heir to Sugar Mil
lions, Denies His Is a Sweet Lot.
Claus Spreckels, son of John D. t
Spreckels, who did not marry Adcle
Case, says, according to a Chicago dis
patch, that he is among the "too rich."
Said the heir of the sugar millions: ,
I shall do as father wishes. He
said he'd rather have me be a sugar
king than a chorus man, so he told me
not to get married.
There are too classes of unfortu
nates In this world who cannot afford
to marry young. They are those who
are either too rich or too poor. I hap
pen to be in the former class, but
might as well be in the latter. They
are equally unfortunate, T
"There is ' said to be so much in
store for me in this life that I am try
ing to begin to choose what I may
best enjoy; hence I must obscure my
self In the branches of the family tree
and wait until I am mature enough to
start one of nay own. For the other
class there is so little to enjoy that

with Frank King Clark of Paris.
I knew her only in a friendly way;
simply admired her, that's all. She
became entangled in a lawsuit of some
kind In Paris and had to leave sooner
than she expected. I was coming
home In two weeks anyway, and so I
offered to come with her and see her
safely on this side of the ocean.

intended engagement to sing in The
