He called as he went down this morning,” “And he said I was to let you have them ?” “ Yes’m.” “Did be appear in good health and spirits ?’’ “ Why, certainly.” “ Look and act natural?” “Of course. Why do you ask ?” “ Because he has keen dead eighteen years, and I have some curiosity on the subject!” “I—l have made a mistake, perhaps!” stammered the young man. “ Perhaps you have.
