By WARING MITCHELL. Copyright, 1907, by Homer Sprague. 01 . o On that certain Tuesday morning, when Colonel Graves got ready to start for the city from his country place, he said to his daughter Winnie: "It is possible that I may want those Mexican bonds this afternoon, and here is the key of the safe. If I have to have them, I will send you a note by a special messenger.''^ The colonel was something of a lawyer, speculator and broker, and Miss Winnie was his nineteen-year-old daughter. She acted as his amanuensis at home and was pretty familiar with his business transactions. The bonds spoken of had a face value of $20,000, but of late had been rather wabbly in the market and had .caused the colonel considerable anxiety. At 1 o'clock that afternoon he wanted the bonds and telephoned his daughter to that effect, saying that he would send a messenger. Instead of sending a boy from the regular service he stepped into the office of Jones next door and said: "Jones, I want a trusty fellow to run out to my house and bring me back some bonds. Haven't I noticed a young man around here?" "Yes. He's a nephew of mine. He's out now, but write a line and I'll send him when he returns. He ought to go out to East Park and back in an hour." The colonel wrote a line to Miss Winnie to deliver the bonds to bearer and then went out on "the street" on business. Fifteen minutes later Jones' nephew was making for the Grand Central station as fast as the express in the subway would carry him. Jones hadn't given the young man's biography, but it may be stated that his name was Vincent Gray, his age twenty-two, and he was in the office of his uncle to learn the devious ways of Wall street before setting up In business for himself on the comfortable fortune left him by a deceased aunt. For a young man who expected to come in contact with bulls and bears and other animals, young Gray was very trustful of human nature. For instance, while his train was speeding along underneath the streets and he was hanging to a strap thinking of things financial a young man with ambitions leaned against him and picked his pocket without exciting the least suspicion. The light fingered youth found there only a cardcase and the letter to Miss Winnie, but they were sufficient to bring about several unlooked for results. He passed into another car and opened and read the letter, and he saw the golden opportunity he had been long looking for. . In the cardcase were two or three dollar bills. The thief had a right to infer that his victim had no more money about him. He likewise had a right to infer that young Gray could not produce the wherewithal to buy a ticket for East Park. The fare was only 20 cents, but without it a man is as badly off as if the sum were $5. /. There was a train ready to leave. The thi^f bought his ticket and got aboard. Vincent Gray stood at the ticket window and bussed and fumbled and was left. His cardcase and money were gone, and when he found that the letter had also taken wings he realized that he was. in trouble. He hadn't even a nickel to get back to the office. He "hadn't the wherewithal to telephone- to his uncle Jones In New street, and after wasting fifteen minutes trying to figure out the problem he made haste to a pawnshop, where he put down his watch for $5. The next train to East Park was ten minutes late in starting and the same in reaching the Park, so there were in all fifty minutes lost The young man had not suspected that he was the victim of a pickpocket, but supposed he had lost his property In the jam while boarding the can He had been told that a telephone message would pre-, cede him, and he had remembered ,the address. Therefore he did not worry so much over thc» loss of the letter. It was only when he came face to face with Winnie Graves and stat^ Ws errand and saw her look of surprise and distrust that he realized the 'situation. "Why* sir," she replied, "those bonds were deliy*rc& to a5 messenget more] than half an hour ago." "But I was sent for them and was delayed.". |§| "If you were sent "for them, y®° must have a line ftbm iny father." „ "I-I had a line, but unfortunately I lost it, together with my mohfy. My iiajflae'ls Vlic^ Gr^,; aM; I MB office of Ezra Jones, lai the same build-some rascal found the lost letter and has taken, advantage of it." "And I am afraid that another rascal is trying to do the same thing!" exclaimed Miss Winnie's Aunt Ruth, who was' at the head of the house and who hid entered the library Just in tiirie to hear the young man's words. "but, madam, you surely can't think that I"— "I can think what I please, sir. Can you imagine we were idiotic enough to give :up those bonds without a written order fromi Colonel Graves?" ^ "But whoever presented that order was an impostor." "Perhaps so, and perhaps it is the impdstor who Is here now. Winnie* go to the telephone and ask your father the name of the messenger he sent. He wouldn't have sent Tom, Dick or Harry on such an important errand. Young man, sit down here .until we find out the truth of this mat-tef » ' - ' ;• The 'girl went to the telephone, and thf young man sat down with visions of policemen and prison bars passing before his eyes. The aunt took a seat directly in front of him and stared at him in a cold, cruel way—a way that gave him to understand that she would let no guilty man escape. After three or four minutes Winnie returned to the room to say: "That's always the way. Central tells me that the line into the city is crossed or something and it may be an-hour or more before they find out the trouble and remedy it." "Then I will go back' and tell your father the situation," said Mr. Gray. "Some sharper has the bonds, and the police should be notified at once." "You will sit right here until that telephone wire is in working order!" announced Aunt Ruth. "There are men about the place, and we have dogs and guns, and if you try to run away it will be the worse for you. Winnie, notify the coachman that we have a suspicious character in the house." i'She needn't do anything of the sort. I will sit here until you have solved the mystery. I am to blame for losing the letter, but if the bonds are not recovered it will" not be my fault" "He doesn't look like a suspicious person," whispered Winnie to her aunt, but in tones loud enough so that he caught the words and turned- red again. "He may not to you, who can't tell a robber from a church deacon. But he does to me, and here he shall stay until we know all about it You sit down in the hall and wait for the telephone, and I'll keep him under my eyes." Aunt Ruth leaned back in her chair, folded her arms, compressed her lips and fastened her eyes on Mr. Gray, and had he been a bunko man of ten years' standing he .must have been disconcerted. As It was, he coughed and blushed and hitched around and erossedandrecrossedhls/legs. When* the aunt broke the silence, It was to Impart nos cheerful information. What she said wis : "It makes you squirm to realize that you've reached.the end of your rope at last, but you'll squirm more still when the judge pronounces sentence. While I pity your poor mother, I hope -you'll get at least ten years." Mr. Gray made no reply. He couldn't find words. About every ten minutes for the next hour he received a brief, vigorous lecture until he was almost worked Up to the point where he thought of jumping through a window and taking his chances, when a man's step was heard. There was an "Oh, papa!" from Miss Winnie in the hall, and Colonel Graves stalked in to exclaim: "What in the devil is the matter here?" "There he sits!" replied Aunt Ruth as she pointed to the culprit. It took about ten minutes to unravel things—that is, to establish Vincent Gray's identity. Fortunately by this time the" telephone was working, and fortunately Mr. Jones was in his office. It took five minutes more to discover that Winnie had given the false messenger Honduras Instead of Mexican bonds and that the colonel was simply relieved of some waste paper. When it came to apologies and Inviting Mr. Gray to forgive and forget and stay to dinner, perhaps a full quarter of an hoUr was consumed, but it is not on record that Mr. Gray regarded the time as thrown away. Now When the colonel smiles and throws out hints at his prospective son-in-law Miss ° Winnie blushes and protests. Aunt Ruth assumes one of her sweetest looks and says: "I don't say I shall leave when he becomes one of the family, but I do say that I shall always lock up my jewelry when I go to bed and lock and bolt the dbor!" : - 1 " : _ ~ .'.doi" , Remarkable Loss of Msmo'ry. Dr. Macnish in his book on "The Philosophy of Sleep" gives the following remarkable instance of lost mempry : "A. young American woman bn aWak-ening from a protracted sleep lost m'emory of all she had before learned. Her memory Was capacious and was stored with a copious stock of ideas. Unexpectedly and without any forewarning she fell into a profound sleep, which continued several hours beyond the ordinary term. On waking she was discovered to have lost every trace of acquired knowledge. Her memory was a clean washed slate. All vestiges both of words and things were obliterated and gone. It wis found necessary for her to leant everything again. She even acquired by new efforts the arts of spelling, reading, writing And calculating and gradually became acquainted with'"the persons and objects around, like a'fifefiig Ifor the first time brought Into tiie ^cld. In theserexjer-' cises she icicle coh^iderable; pi^wen-cy. But after a few months" anotherjlt Of somnolency invaded her. On .rousing' from it she found herself restorM to ih^ state she was in before the first p&roxysm, but, was wholly Ignorant of W&ry !event ;ab& occurrence that had befallen her afterward." Meeting of Cemetery Association. The annual meeting of the Enfield Cemetery association was held at the town building, Monday evening, March 4 Owing to the fact that several other important meetings were held in different parts Of the town the same evening the attendance was not large, but interest enough was manifested by those present to make up for it. The treasurer's report showed a balance in the treasury, besides the endowment funds received for lots. The following officers were elected: Presi dent, Lyman A. Upson ; vice-president, Ashmun P. Prickett; secretary and treasurer, Allen B Hathaway ; trustees for three years, Win. T. Watson and Fred'k A. King; auditors. Fred'k A. King and Henry W. King. The other trustees whose terms have not expired are Geo T Mathewson, Hiram Terry, Wo. Cal-derwood and Geo J. Gordon. The sec retary gave the following report for the year: SECBETARY'S REPORT Mpmbers of the Enfield Cemetery Association : Your secretary submits the following brief report of the work accomplished during the first year of the association's existence. He wishes that there was more to report. We have a paid-in membership of seventy-nine, seventy-eight living members, Mrs C. A G. Brig ham having recently died. This membership is scattered from Springfield to New York city and from Thompsonville and Enfield to Chicago, New Jersey and Boston, in fact more interest seems to be shown by those from the more distant places We have received small gifts of $4 each, besides membership, from A Murray Richmond of East Orange, N. J and Charles King of Hartford. .One of $5 for use in the Enfield yard from your secretary who wishes he could make it $500. Between three and four hundred circular letters and copies of the by-laws were mailed last spring to people likely to be interested and several members were ob rained thereby, but no such number as we hope to obtain. We have taken care of four lots in Enfield street cemetery the past year and two for part of the year. Three endowments have been re ceived for the same yard and negotiations are in progress for two more there and one for Hazardville We have the pros-pact of caring for at least a dozen lots in Enfield street this coming season. A committee was appointed last spring for the purpose of seouring new members and subscriptions, and a subscription paper was in preparation, but after considering the question carefully the trustees recommended that the matter of the subscription paper be dropped for the time at least as they felt that this was a purely voluntary affair, and the public g<od-will could better be obtained by doing what we could with what was offeied, and if the work was satisfactory the growth would be sure, though slow. One effect of the association's existence is already apparent in the increased interest taken in keeping the lots in order by thbse not directly connected with it Several persons who have expressed great interest in cemetery work, and suggested that they were willing to give liberally, have refrained' so far from doing so, seemingly, und^r the impression that as the association covered all the cemeteries in the town, their gift or gifts would be scattered. This is a false impression and should not be: allowed to prevail. While we are very glad to receive gifts for the general fund not specified nor limited in any way, yet any one wishing oo to do can specify which yard or yards they wish to be benefitted by their gift and a receipt so acknowledging the faot will be sent them, and the money ex pended as desired, either principal or in terest. This is a subject that cannot be made too plain, as we fear it is keeping bsbk many who would gladly give to an individual cemetery. In closing, your secretary would like to state the immediate wants of the association for the year to come First, we wiisb to increase our general expense fund from |60 to $1,000, the income from which would be available for current expenses and surplus remaining, if any. to be rein vested each year Next, we would like to 'raise $1,000, the entire sum to be expend ed this summer on the various cemeteries in'permanent improvements, aside from sDecial care of lots There is no doubt but what $3,000 or $5,000 would be well applied in the same direction, but $1,000 would make a good beginning ,Nnw, in a town of 5,000 or more inhabitants we nhould be able to obtain a membership of 500 at least, which would raise $500 If eaph member would constitute himself a committee of one to bring in new members this could soon be accomplished— leaving but $1 500 to be given by public spirited citizens and out of town people who have relatives in the various • yards. As one person suggested, $500 as his possible gift to Enfield cemetery, and others have spoken of good amounts, it would seem not too much to expect. Enfield is without doubt far behind many New England towns in appreciatipn of her natural advantages and a large field is open for those who have the desire We sincerely hope no one will wait for his neighbor to come forward but that each person who feels an interest will oome to the front with his gift, be it $1.00 or $1 000. We again urge that no one need fear to give because the association covers the entire town Respectfully submitted by the SECRETARY.

There are a lot of pebple walking the streets today, who in my opinion, should be in state's prison. It is a great satisfaction to me to be engaged in selling the class of securities that enables me to look my customers in the face when I meet them, and which makes them glad to see me when they meet me.
