" No. Mr. Morpeth; I am sorry to
say. no news whatever."
The speaker was ....Mr. Sharpe, the
senior partner of the firm or Sharpe
Floyd. whose Inlvertisement, as
a b o v e , 1 1;1 I appeared at, intervals in
all the leading 14wspapers during
nearly six muntlisr-vrior to the date
of our story. Mr. Sharpe was seated
iu .his ysPecial saffetum, to which
n but, the more important clients
of the firm Were admitted.) On the
opposite side of the r table-sat mitt
dle-ae:6l look of
eager an , iety and, wirvous haste was
in strikhr - tr•tit.rast to the placid self
possesion or his solicitor. Mr. 3lor
petit s impatience scarcely gave him
time t.Q remove his.hat or gloves he
lore he broke out with the anxious
" Well, Mr. Sharpe:,
news of the missing deed''' and' re
ceived the reply above quoted.
But. heavens! MN' dear sir,
111 flnother ro , •teight the ease comes.
cm for hearing! What on earth is to
lie done?"
We can apply for an adjourn
merit, if you like; hut, of course, it 1
is only putting off the evil day. You
know my opinion ariont the matter:"
" That the deed is no longer in ex
istenee can't ---I ?v./0 believe it.
At any rate, let us make another
trial. I would willingly give a thou
sand if it eould only Inc recovered."
Quite hopeless, my dear sir. You
have already increased the reward
from 1:1 tin to If the deed was
still in existence the holder would
have been only too !dal( to restore, it
for a fifth part of sueh a re-ward. You
may makeup your mind that it has
heel , . destroyed, either purpOselv or
aceidentally ; I cannot say wilich,
and . 1 delp't like to conjecture ; but
in; any. Oise you may rest assured
that the reason it is not produced is,
that it is beyond production ; in fact,
that it no longer exists."
"It is'all very well for you to talk
in that Jdrilosophical mariner ; but
how on earth are we to prove our
ease without it?"
It will be up-hill work, I grant ;
hut as our 'leader. Mr. Brass, told
yon iu . consultation last week, the
case is by, no means hopeless. The
de e d being lost, awl no copy in_"exis
tenet% parole e : vidence will be, admis
sible. The'llitliculty is (and it is no
use mincing the matter) the evidence
in questifon will he exclusively that
of interested- parties ; and, consider
dng.the v`cry larg,e amount at stake.
Oat, is point the other side will
naturalliy make the most of."
" doubt they will ; that is just: I
~chat drives um frantic. anti you talk
it it as Icalml2, as if you were diseuss
li, th e telephone, or the last new
planet. I know, and you know, that
my cause is- just and right. To think
that I and poor wife, the very soul of
honor, /should have to staml tip on

insinuations that we ate swearing

blood boil to think Of. it. .I. feel
almost. iDelined to say that I will

face such an ordeal. -
" Nay. my dear !sir," said Mr.
Sharpe. alarmed at the threatened
collapse- of a promising litigation,
• that would never do. To give in
tt this stage would he tantamount to
nu admission. with Most people, at
any rate, that you hall no ease all

iTom llalliday was copying clerk
and messenger in the office of Messrs.
Shatpc & Floyd. He was just , two
and twenty, wrote - a capital, hand,
had a capital appetite, earned -IS
chitlings a. week, which, till- lately,
had sulliCed for his moderate needS.
We say till lately, fur, sioin f e months
previously, Tom had, in a rash mo
ment, fallen in !bye, whieh l 'he found
to lead him into extravagant outlay
in pomatum awl neckties,•aind in, va
rious constitute a trusidera:
ble tax on his modest resources. His
sweetheart was the daughter of a
worthy widow, who was caretaker or
" laundress " of a certain house of
Chancery lane, in which Messrs.
Sharpe, A: Floyd had formerly rented
Offices: Hence 'Tin's acquaintance
- with Mri. Movie and her daughter.
Bessie ,Moyse worked as a milliner
at a shop in RegMit street, and it
was an understood thing that when
Tom awl she had. ; saved up money
enough to furnislillwo rooms they
were to be married but as in the
course of cis mouths their united
savings only amouitted to five-and
, thirty shillings and some odd coppers,
their engagement appeared likely to
be rather a long one. On Saturday
afternoons., the young people were in
the habit of taking a long walk
gether, followed by tea at Chancery
lane—a festiVe ceremony which was
only marred by the presence of Un
cle Keckwidae, an :I*ed relative who
resided with Mrs. Moyse. It was a
family tradition that Uncle kqek
widge• had been rather a fascinating
dog in his day ; but he was now very,
infirm, not to say childish. • Ile . wits'
very deaf; and, as :I:rule; understood
little or nothing of -what was going
on around him ; but. every' now . and
then caught one-half of a sentence,
and invariably that half which the
rest of the company would have pre,

The Conversation which we have
reported between Mr. Morpeth and
his solicitor took place on a Satur
day. Tom Halliday copied out the
adVertisemem, as directed, and duly
left, ft with the agent. By the time
had done this it was a o'clock,
and with a light heart he hung up
his well-worn office coat, gave his
hat an e,x tra polish, and then started
oil to a certain trecin Regent's Park,
where he found Bessie Moyse already
awaiting him.' 4 '
After seine indescribable proceeds:
ing on the part of Toni, which caused
Bessie to exclaim, Well, I never,
sir!' with so•many people look
ing, t.. 06 !" they junior arm in arm.
and proceeded to hear the band in
.the Zoological Garden. This, how
-ever, they did after a manner of their
own. They had discovered that the
music \Fa> equally etlective (and a
shilling cheaper) from the outside of
the ; - .tardens, and as Tom justly re,
marked. they did not want' to lie
bothered with animals, so they prom
enaded up and down outside the pail
ings to the inspiring strains of 'the
martial music within.
The main topic of conversation, I
not unnaturally. was Mr. Morpeth's
advertisement ; and the young peo
pie amused themselves by discussing
hypothetically what use they would
make of the reward, supposing they
were • lucky enough to find the miss
ing deed. Various plans were6 , ng.: .
gusted, but it was finally decided that
Bessie should set up a tobacconist's
.and stationery business, in aid of
Tom's legal earnings. At tirst Tom
was rather inclined to take the. tobac
conist's portion of the business him
self. as he hall an idea that he could
serve cigars and vesuvians with eon- -
sidera ble artistic finish; but this wits
overruled by llessie, who would not
- hear of his giving up nis "profession,"
That idea was therefore abandoned,
Tom justly remarking that, as he
wasn't at all likely to tin,! the deol,
it reaily wasn't, of very much cause
qtlellee. After a somewhat lengthy
stroll the young people made their
way back to Chancery lane, Tom
purchasing a pint of shrimps on his
way, as a contribution to Mrs.
Moyse's refreshment arrangements.
They found the table spreall, a pot of
Bogie-made ja - in and a plate of water
cresses shedding lustre on the festive
board ; the kettle boiling on the hob;
'and Mrs. Moyse bustling about in
the final preparations for teamaking.
Uncle Keekwidge sat, with his hat
on, ,in his accustomed place by - the.
Mrs \t, firs:, taking. O s •
session, soine - years before, of .:the
in usekk iper's apartment in 84-dford
row, U nele Keekwidge had complain-
ed of a draught, and had put on his
hat as - a protection. As the rest of
the family aid not perceive any
drau!dit, and rashly ventured to
question its existence, 'Uncle Keck
wid!re, who omid never brood con-
know what betis. It's only his fun.
.11e's always taking one off."
" Be needn't take off my trousers,
though," said tom, and then finding
that, he had (quite unintentionally)
made,a kind Of joke, be tried bard to
look as if he had said it on purpose.
" Thomas," said Bessie, pretending
to be dreadflißy shoeked.." Thomas,
I am perfectly ashamed of you! It
would, serve you to let you
have-any shrifups.."7
". Forgive fife this Once," said Torn;
" I'll never do so any more. I won
der whethert the old buffer' would
like a shrimp. Try a monster of the
deep, Mr. Keekwidge," he continued,
putting a spOonful on the old man's
plate. " And I shonldn't break my
.heart -if one of 'em got crossways and
cho:-.:eil you, you old image !" he add
ed, in a lowettone.
" For shame, sir !" 'cried Bessie ;
"a poor, harintess old man like that,
and you want to choke him!"
" Why couldn't he leave my trou
sers alone, then ?" said Tom, still by
no means pacified..
' Here I.lncle Keckwidge, who had
been looking about uneasily, as if in
-search-ot something, pulled a large
black pin out of his necktie and be
gan dirrainci vigorously at a shrimp
sr, •
as though apparently without satis
factory result.
" No, uncle,". said Mrs. Moyse,
taking the in away from him; "not
like that. YOu're thinking of winkles;
these are shrimps." (We. are grieved
to confess .that the - goad lady pro
nounced the word as " s:rimps."):
" Then what did he say they was
winkles for r' said Uncle Keckwidge,
much agarieVed.
" I didn't,f' said Torn, indignantly;
" I never sail anything of the sort."
" Young Man,'; said Uncle Keck
wedge, with dignity, "you said dis
tinctiv winkles ; I noticed it particu
lar. 1 am very partial to winkles,
but shrimps:ain't no account."
" Come. uncle," said Bessie, "you
know the laSt time Tom bought win
kles you said you preferred shrimps."
" We-ain't had winkles," resumed
the old ignoring his niece's
remark; not Since that day when we
found the ear-wig in my tinnily hat.
And they was in a pie'''
"No, no. Uncle,"'said Mrs. Moyse,
laughing, "Plat wasn't winkles; that
was eels."
,‘ 1 duiind about that," said Vncle
Keck whige,! thoughtfully; "but I
know you pick 'em up with a pin,.
With a vim!" he repeated at inter
v;:ls, like an .I , eho, fainter and fainter
each time. ;" With a. pin !" and then
again relapSed into sikilice.
Bythe way of changing the sub
ject, Tom began to- tell Mrs. Moyse
how the gircat ease of Davi , vs. Mor
peth wa. eneeted to come off on
Wednesday. week, and how the most
important title-deed was mysteriously
missing, and Mr.-Morpeth had offered
a reward Of Opt) to any one who
would re tore it " -
"Unel4eekwidge brightened up
suddenly at the word " reward."
"1 knoW," he said, noilding his
head sagely. "1 see the hill myself,
at the baker's round the corner. A
tarrier dog with one eye, answers to
the name 6' Bob. Ten shillin' re
ward." ; • "
" No; . no. uncle," said Bessie
" that's not the reward we were taiP
ing about. '.l',liin was telling us about
a paper that was lost. and the gentle
man offertitt a heap of .money to get
it back again. Five hundred golden
pounds ! Only think of that!"
" Five (Mildred pounds for finding
a terrier dOg." replied Unele K.'eck
witb,e. " It ain't likely. Not i i ,f he
was ever such a stunner for rats:"
'' I didn't say anything about! ter
rier dogs, Mr. Keekwidge," exclaimed
Torn. "d said a deed—Mr. Mor
peth's deed."
" You distinctly said a terrier dor%
with oneeYe," said Uncle Keckwidge:
"and as ifor saying you'll be d—d,
that dorv't alter it. Nor it ain't- man
ner;:. eitlMr."
" I 'never said anything of the
kind !" shouted Tom. ." I . t4id it was
a deed that was lost—a parchment
I said. all Mon! , it was
meant," said the old in„ only catrl
ina the /ast word of bile sentence.
" A Varier dog, answers to the riamer
of Poi)? i Wen, you ain't found him,
have voit','"
Mrs. Moyse and her daughter were
so tickled with the old man's Mistake
and Tom's increasing indignation,
; That it was some time before their
laughter Would permit them to e 3
plain to Uncle Keekwidge that it
was a valuable paper, and not a dog;
thatt was lost.
" Then.why did he -conic a-telling
usstorica about tarrier doas? 1 don't
believe there ain't been no dug lost 1
at all—there now. And he may put'
that in Winne anti smoke it."
Torn Was beginning to get really
angry, tint Bessie pacified him by
sipieozing his hand under the table
and whiverina:
" don't, mind uncle, Tom,
dear. Von know he's quite deal' and
Coolish. lie doesn't know half tie
"I don't think much of -the other
half. whichever it may be," said Torn,
doubtfully. " lkos never particularly
amiable; but this evening - he does
seem to have his knife into me un

" Nevi..r mind, dear," replied Bes
sic; " We don't take any notice of

" Thrink you, ma'am - ; since you're

said ;Thin, and proceeded to help
himself' But scarcely bad he taken
a meutliful when he grew suddenly
pale—hiS ifiwer jaw dropped, and he

"Good gracious, Tom." said Bes

" Don't say it's a black beetle,"

draught of the:advertisement, 'which
was sq in his pocket, and began to
compare the names of the 'parties to.
the deed, as there mentioned, With
the piece of parchment which had
covered the jam-pot, and which now
lay upside down upon-the table.
" Ralph Howard and Frederick

" It's all cut

Mrs. Moyse, flinging open the cup

there, and they've each got a piece of

opened. And 1 rather think "
rummaging in the cupboard—" yes,
here it is 1-1 rathi'r think this is all

It was an anxious moment. The
mutilated parchment was spread out,
the pots uncoVered, and the circular
fragments restored, though with sonic
difficulty, each . to its proper place.
At last the task was finished. A few
of the and whi.reascx and provided
n!. were slightly sticky, lint not the
smallest - part Wan misting.
Mrs. Moyse's possession of the
deed was easily accounted for. When .
es:srs. Sharpe & I:11)yd had removed
from Chancery lane, a quantity of
old papers, which were - rt garded . as
out or date and useless ' had been
swept into a corner foc the dustman.
The deed in question, had, by-some
accident,* got among them ; and Mrs.
Moyse,'obs'erving that it was parch
ment. and beings careful housekeep
er, picked it up,and laid it aside for
the purpose tor i whlch she afterWanls
used it.
These particulars were communi
cated to Tom while Fessie brushed
his hat and generally got him ready
( for excitement had made him gnite .
helpless) to go oft to Mr. - Sharp'S
private house at once to claim tlae l
reward. Everybody appeared to
have - a vague kind of impression that
it was all a dreaM, and that they had
better st cure the reward before they^
woke up. With the deed carefully
wrapped in pap..;r and in the-breast
pocket of his carefully buttoned coat.
Tom hurried to Mr. SharP's, and,
hot and panting,• began to tell his
story. No sooner, however, had Mr.
Sharpe comprehended the main fact
that the deed was 'found, and assured
himself of its imlentity, than he stop
ped' Toni short in hip narrative. '

he; "you shall .tell me the .rest as

New:York Mercantile Review
The spiiit of speculation is being
leveloped to an unusual degree in
Wall street, considering,. the .season
and the fact that the operations,
formerly, were reduced to the year's
minimum during the heated term. In
former years the prominent dealers
were wont to retire from active
trading and seek the repose oil the
various popular Summer resorts;
but the evidence of the present daily
list of transactions is that the rule is
proving the exception, for although
the floor, of thel Excange reflects
the absence of many well known
members, their iOtluence is maintain
ed through the medium of the great-
ly improved system of telegraphic
communication. Why the formerly
dull season should lie so metamor
phosed into one Of exceptional activ
ity is explained by Mr. H. L.Hortop,
of H. L. Horton Co., of .16 Broad

business), who says that the stocks
representing the great•grain growing
districts of the Northwest are fast
becoming, the indices of the specula
dye market. The almost uhlimitet
resources of the wheat growers have
given rTse to the necessity of the ex
tension of railway lines and these
are, at the present time, only a small
part of the system which during the

moo, that the situation this year is
especially peculiar. He believes the
wheat:crop will :be as large as any
ewer raised in the United Suites, pro
vided the country is .favored . with
ciood weather during the next two
or•three weeks, and that the qualitY
will be good; that the *inter wheat•
already secured is fully up to the
highest expectations, and,:that the
corn and barley crops will 'be large.
Other grains,•except Oats, bid fair to
yield well, but Oats in theAVest wilt
harvest light, having secured the

done with it, in order to afford 'isi- ,
ness to the railrom Is, and rood pa'ice

Froth the time the oriole pe g an to

One day the unhappy spaniel came

M. BOwerman and wifeleft.for the
country yesterday. One could- tell •
that their - trunks were not even half
fall, as- they .were pitched into this
baggage car with, a crash.: They be. •
gan packing - a week ago. When the -
subject was broached he said he pre;
ferred packing,hiS own trunk, and he
didn't propose to take a' whole month .
to do it, either: - All .he intended to
take along was an - extra suit, and he - :
could throw that in, most any way.
Night before last he began work. It
struck him that he had better put in
an extra, pair of boots as a founda
tion,- and he flupg ''.em in and braced •
'cm in the corners with his - clean
,shirts. The shirts didn't seem to -
ride very well and he braced them ,
with his two pair of trousers.. Then
he stuffed his Sunday coat pockets:
Withdollars•and • cuffs and found a
place for it, used his
_white - vests for
chinking," and the balance of his
clothing just fitted in nicely.. • .
" The man who takes over ten
minutes to pack a trunk in is a dolt!"
said Mr. Bowerman,. as he- slammed • .
down the lid and turned the key. •
Mrs. Bowerman had been atTit just •
seven days and seven nights, and.
.when the husband went up stairs at
ten.o'clodk she sat doWn . before the •
Open-trunk, with tears in her eyes.
"You- see how it - is," She explained, •
as lie looked down upon her in awful
• contempt., " I've' got only one part of
my dresses; in here,- saying nothing
of a thousand' other things, and even
now the lid won't. shut, down. I've
got such a headache I 'must lay down
for a few minutes. •
She went away 'to lop, and Mr.
Bowerman sat down and- mused :
" Space is space. The use•of apace. -
is in to utilize it." . ' _
Removing everything he began
packing. Ile found than silk dress j--
could be rolled to the size of a quart
jug. 'A preshly starched lawn was
made to take the place or a pair of
' slippers. lie; brown bunting fitted
into the niche' she had reserved for
three 'handkerchiefs, and her best •
bonnet was turned bottom up in the
box and filled full or underclothing.
Ile tEit, there viewing sufficient
empty space
.to pick 'in a wholebeff,
whell she returned and said he was
the only good husband in this world,
and she kissed' him on the nose as he
turned the key,
"dt'ssimply difference between -
the sexes," was his patronizing reply
as lie went down stairs -to turn on
the burglar alarrn. .
When that wife opened that trunk
last night! But screams and
shireks would avail nothiulg.-
A- citizen on his way home late the
other night, saw a boy sittin g in
front of a house on Union street..
" What are you doing there, huh ?"
he iriquired in surprise.
Sir! keep. still'." said the boy in
a whisper-, " I live here."
" Well, why don't . you - go in the

" Waitin! for the fun,"- replied the

me to wait till he tOld her.he'd been
