An Elderly Lover. —A hoary-headed M.P. in England some time since became desperately enamoured of a very young lady, but her friends sternly refused to allow her to marry him. Ho was suddenly taken ill, and feeling his last hour to be at hand, he sent her a sealed packet, with instructions that it was to be opened in the presence of a solicitor six months after his death. He died, and his natural heirs, failing to find any will, proceeded to take the necessary steps for obtaining letters of administration, under which the old man’s wealth would be divided amongst them. Before they were obtained, however, the allotted period of six months expired, the mysterious packet was opened, and the girl, who was in very humble circumstances, found that her septegenarian lover had willed her L 20,000.
