Gascoigne was oo high minded and generous to feel any ntrnent agamet hu cousin on this ao- ount, and he would hivetieen perfectly Battened to know that he would inherit qually with her But what perpetually worried him was the irritating suspense itb which his uncle seemed purposely A inflict, and there were moments when e felt strongly inclined to sacrifice his lu- ure prospects for the object of giving the Id gentleman a piece of bia mind. One eventful morning Gascoigne called t his uncle' chambers and was ushered nto the old man's sitting-room, s gloomy pnrtment, full of artistic treasures, but endered obnoxious to tbe dutiful nephew y associations with its rightful owner. It waa tenantless, however, at tbe moment, IB uncle's capaciona armchair drawn up n front of the blazing flre had evidently ust been vacated, whileupon an adjacent able stood a japanned tin box, inscribed with the old man's name in white letters Gascoigne stood for a few moments ou the eartbrng, gazing around him id wondering what sort of a welcome he would receive, when his attention was at- racted by the edgo of a piece of paper Inch protruded from beneath the edge f the tin box Absently and acting upon mere idle impulse, he stepped forward nd endeavored to force back the paper nto the box. Not succeeding at bis first ttempt, he put out his other hand m rder to ease the pressure of Ihe -o his surprise it yielded to his touch, and e then perceived for the first time that je box was unlocked Up to tbat time nothing had been tur- ner from his thoughts than to play the py, m fact he had scarcely been con- scious of w hat he was doing. Nor, indeed vcu when the uplifted lid revealed tbe Contents of the bos, whmh confuted, ol a umber of documents neatly ic experience the least sensation ol cur. only But as he was clos- ng the lid again after releasing tbat fatal nece of paper, htu eye was caught by a prominent inscription VV ILL or WILLIAM BAKKBB, B8Q., Q 0. Without making excuses for the young man's next action, it should at least be re- corded that it was entirely uupremediat- ed. There to hia hand, lay the solution to all hia doubts and difficulties. K he was bin uncle's heir well and good, bJa present negligent mode of life need trou- ble him no more But if he had only been left an and Ins some other des- tined to inherit the then it be- hooved linn at once to set about making up for lost time by applying himself as- siduously to his profession This reflect- ion passed like a flash IhrouKh Gascoigne's mind and made the opportunity for en- hghtment so irresistible Unit be seemed to rush upon temptation i otter than yield to it One pecond of anxious listening during u Inch the only sound he heard was tin ImnultuouH beating of his heart, and then he had seized the momentous document and was eagerly scanning its contents Tbongli brief, it was, m luckily, in Ins uncle's crabbed handwriting, and coigne was compelled to carry it away from the box a little nenrcr to the light A hasty glance wan sufficient to convey to bis trained mind its full purpoit A pal tr> legacy to the long suffering valer, a picture or two to himself, all the rest of the contents of the tcstators's chambers, with the cash at the bank to the niece, "Mrs and the residue "to my nephew, Chai les Grant Oaecoignc, whom t appoint sole exeeutor of my will Cascoigne gasped as he read the con- cluding words, winch meant that ho was absolutely heir to bis nncle s vast wealth He was glad on his cousin's account, too, for the art IreosuiLS bequeathed to her were of considerable Millie Hut to know that he himself w s the practi cally the of the remainder of the old man's 'ortune, was a reve- lation which cuised liis pulses to thrill with excitement, and inude the sunlight dazzling Perhaps because he was momentarily away by the pleiisui able excite- ment of the discovery die >oung min's vigilance was relaxed, or, peilmps, old Barker intentionally burst in upon him unawares At all events, without a mo- ment's warning, while still held the will in his hand, the door of the room was opened, and GoBcoigne had barelv time to put the document into the side >ocket of his coat before his uncle, with ml on, and muffled up for going out, sud- denlv stood before him "Hullo1 growled the old mm, blink- ng in tin sunlight so >ou are here1 Yes, replnd Gascoigne tremu otisly, "didn t Ilogi rs tell He neur tells me anyllnhg, the lazy grumbled old Barker shuf- ling m and giving his nephew u distorted orfinger to shake VV1 it do you wanl? "I called to 1 was sorry to hear have been so unwell "paid Cmscoigne hanking bis stars that he had not left the id of the tin box open "feollme, but you are disappointed, 'ou see I'm nearly all right again I was just going out, snarled his 'lincmg to the tin box un he spoke Giscoigne H heart stood still as the old aan lifted the lid of the box He appar- ntly remembered that be had left it un ocked, and the action was evidently de- igned to assure himself of the fact He ad laid a trap for his nephew and enter- ed the room abruptly with tbe idea that e would find him prying" Such a prc- ect would not have been foreign to the Id gentlemau's disposition, and Gas- oigno trembled lest his uncle might open he box But apparently tins suspicion was groundless, or else Gascoigne e posi on at the window hod been suggestive of nnocence At all events, old Barker pro- euded to lug out Ins from his reechts pocket and locked up the box with a shakey hand "Can I do that for you, mquir- d Gascoigne, prompted by a wild hope f being able to slip in the unobserv- 1 "No, you stay where yju are'" said hip ncle over lus shoulder Tins is where I eep my will, lou would like to sec it dare say? "No, indeel, said Gasco sme hast- y, dreading that his uncle migbt be dlt- )osed to gratify him "Not curious enough, snarled old iarker "Well, that s a good thing You would be disappointed, I can tell you 'on't expect anything from me "Very well, sir said Gascoigue, too inch overwhelmed by the consciousness having the will in his pocket to apprc- late the humor of the situation "Quite disinterested, Mark my Words young man, not one farthing wiil ou got from me till yon are making JC5DO year by yonr piofession PO you ried the old gentleman, cocking his eyo t him "Yes, answered Gascoigne, with lerable composure "Then you bad better seel about it Not ut what you have plenty ol be tdded hastily 'I'm good for twenty ears the doctor says so I'm glad to heat said Gascoigne, ntifnlly "No, you're not All the same, it IB Oi ell for you that you should have A few ears to work up a practice in, for if I were to die to morrow, you would get othmg" 'Are you going out, inquired Gas- coigne, what to Bay to this enig- latical utterance "Yes, I in going to take that box to my ank. You can come with me, and pay ialf the cab replied ills uncle, buckling at this characteristic joke. He rang the bell, and sent his man for cab, to which, in due course, Gascoigne escorted his amiable relative, while the sorter carried the tlu box If his uncle ad been m an observant mood, be would lave remarked that the young man sub- itted with much better grace than uraal, bia jokes and sarcasms This was bard- surprising, for it is not difficult to be ong-suffering with an elderly relation when one knows he has manifested benevolence in the most effectual manner, )n the other hand, the awkaid fact tbat e was carrying off, clandestinely, tlie.old man's will was sufficiently disconcerting o render Gascoigne a trifle absent. When be had deposited his uncle and istm box at the alter duly pay- ng his moiety of the cab fare, Gascoigne ad leisure to reflect upon the predica- ment he bad placed himself m Needless o say he bitterly repented ol his unpar- onable curiosity, it would be more just o dwell upra his honest shame at IB had done It seemed to him that only wo courses were open to him, one, the more honorable, u is to return tbe docu- ment and say nothing The latter plan as the one he finally adopted, and so much from self-interested motives as be cause he could not. bring himself to face be old man's wrath The more he bought about the mattei, tbe more bit- erly ashamed and humiliated he felt As or tbe fortiMie, he regarded tbat as abso- otely and for ever forfeited, whichever course he took If be confessed his fault, cross out his name The same thing wonlou recollect that day when you left .In box unlocked upin the table here? In vour absence I opened it saw your will md was tumble to resist the temptation of it ruturmd suddenly be ore I was able to replace it so I :ept it exclaimed Goccoigne verv pale and shamefaced There was a painful silence for full v a iiiinute the old man's evil eye Deemed pobitlvely to glare upon the offender o looked prccisel) as he felt and then u coigne said "It was a mean trick, but I'm heartily ashamed of myself, and I beg your par- don 1 And that is to be the end of it, sneeied the old man, slowly from his amazement I expect paid Gascoigne, half dehantly "Yonr cousin ought to be much obhg ed to said oid Barker, with a harsh laugh She needs the money more than I said Gascoigne 'By Jove, sir, she shall have it, too What is more, it shall come to her from your own hand roared the old man, purple in bis face 'I don't said Gatcoigne quietly Til make a fresh will on the spot cry well sir ou shall take it dow n from my die- tition As ;ou please It is rather like sign- ing my own death said Goscoi- {ne with a nervous laugh "So it is, so muclr the btttei series you right There's is a sheet of paper and pen over jonder Sit you said the old man excitedly Poor Gascoig'io obejcd silently, and not without an uncomfortable pang It as he had said, uncommonly like signing lus own death warrant, but after all, it was only what be had anticipated, and hti felt a certain sense or relief at hav- ing unburdened lusconsclence I suppose you had better have the pictures and the things said the old man grudgingly "She wouldn't ap- preciate 'em Thank you, said Gascoigne meekly "There may bo a few pounds at mv north speaking of In fact, this will may as well be in similar terms as the last, with your name and Marga- ret's said old Barker, with his malevolent old eje glistening 'Margaret U to be residuary legatee, in said Gascoigne, with a unking hetrt 'Yes to his uncle's bedsidi, but tbe p itient waa unconscious, and in that state he passec awaj His will was nowhere to be found, but in benrclnng for it, daecoigne came across a note addressed to him by the de- ceased, stating that the document was in the custody of his solicitor, and request, ing Goscoiguti to see tins gentleman at once before communicating u ith bis cou- sin Ihe voting man naturilly lost no time in cillmg upon Mr Hush, of L coin s Inn, in old friend and client of his uncle's, ancfhc was perhaps a trifle di appointed when the laitvcr placed in Ins hands the identic.'! document which he h id himself ushir-tcd to piepare 1 1 thought perhaps, my uncle might have made a subsequent will, he obseived half involuntaril) He could not have made a will more f u arable to vou said old Mr Hush His pictures and tilings must be worth 000 nt the verv lowest estim He, and Ins bank he leaves vou to lather more, as 1 hap- pen to know Itlioiild think vou will take ultogethei 000 when the effects are It is an agii 'mmmured Gascoignc "Hill mv cousin is residuary legitUe, which means I suppose 000 'Nothing of the kind mv dear sir, exclaimed Mr Bush 'Hie lady will on v get the proportion of Ins annuity due at the date of Ins or so" What'" gapped Gascoigne "Hisan- IlllltV It vv til surprise many people" replied e lawver He was supposed to be very wealthy, and so he was in one sense. ile i-ank his fortune many years ago in puichuse of an annuity of a vur, urn! a precious good bargain he nade of it It is a good thing for you bat you are not bis residuary legatee 'I was once, exchimed Gascoigne narvelhrg at Ins narrow es-ape, and at us uncle's peculiar method of showing csentmenl ai, that was before yonr snccew at be bur, on which I congratulate cphcd Mr Bush "The fact is that our Icpaited friend UUH fond of a joke Tor tinttelv, as vour cousin expects nothing, he won't be disippointed at getting only 000 If Ins old will had stood and h id found vouiself in her posi- "That would have been a sell certain i." said felt that he could iot afford to laugh BAM IT IN.
