Mrs. Verrcll took It with an expres­ sion of distaste. “You wouldn’t believe anything that wretched paper says, I hope,” she ob­ served. “Whenever I read it I feel as if 1 needed r. bath to get clean again.” “The Era had a little notice, too, say­ ing that Sid—Mr. Cuthbert-was there, and that Is reliable enough.

The woman who once known as Viola T’revannion was buried beside her son, wliose death two years ago was also the occasion of a hurst of mortuary generosity on the part of young Cuthbert.” “Isn’t that a nice tiling to read about a man you had thought you could— could at least respect?” said the girl bitterly. “I don’t believe it about Jlr.

After A'errell and young Dr. Dent had greeted tlie two women the latter turned to his cousin ami said: “Did I bear you speaking about Sid­ ney Cuthbert, Beauty?” “You may have if you were listen- said the girl. “And 1 do liiat you would dr< nickname.

Tommy used to sell Cuthbert evening papers on IVall street until one day a truck ran over bis ankle, and when we got him here wo found ho hud a very interesting ease of heart disease, so wo kept him. Well, the Cod used to give Cuthbert all tUo nows about the street that lie got from bis friends who used to visit him. It meant a good deal to Cuth­ bert, for he was keeping his illness a secret for fe.ar it would bring bis moth- H‘ back from Newport and consequent­ ly didn’t have any callers of his own. Tommy generously loaned him his vis­ itors, and one day the suporintendent, a pious old part3’, came in unan­ nounced and caught them shooting .craps on Cuthberfs cot. Tliej' had made dice out of lump sugar, and Cuthburt had won 8 cents, when old Barber raided tlie game. After that the two pals were more cautious. One other visitor the Cod had was a wom­ an who said she was his cousin, but Tommy had other ideas. Certain ac- quaiutanoes of hers h.ad told Tommy that she was his mother. At any rate, she had ‘treated Uim white,’ as he in­ formed me, on several occasions and had ‘staked’ him to a much needed dollar more than once when he was ‘up ag’ln it.’ “In those daj's we had a night orderly in our ward whom I always meant to poison, h u t somehow He wound up a carei .night by dro^iping a coraou and two mini / sr got ti binders n ight lam p into a mto.s later he drop-. ped the job of'lighting the flr'e and hustled to save our eases. .Tust as we were congratulating ourselves that all were safely out Tommy the Cod seized the night nurse by the neck and yelled; “ ‘IVliere’s m y pal?
