When she was twenty she became en

between the two seemed but a multi

day was approaching when Sallie
would come into her $1,000, and that
would enable them to set up in a small
way at housekeeping.
The day she was paid the money be

lard Stearns, her lover, had been long
looking for the day when they should
be married. Now, when "the money
was paid, Sallie told him that she pro

turned to Colorado Springs. The next
day she went to a broker and asked
the market , price of . Hope Mining
shares. They told, her that there had
not been a quotation for months, but If
2 or 3 cents were offered it .would
bring all she might wish to buy. She
authorized them to offer 2 cents

The next day, looking at the quota

newspaper stating that the daughter

mine, bad a large block of the stock.
