satisfied with the old O. A. R. hall, on

delightful conclusion. John Travers, a

Is penniless and has come up to Lon
don to get married, and Sir Reginald
ia suffering from the injustice of his
uncle's will, by the terms of which he
'must marry before the first of Septem

agreement with his fiancee: "They say
thereis a fool- born every minute. I
