    You really never invested a pennyof my uncle's bequest, but only its unmaterialized future; what wehave lost was only the incremented harvest from that future by yourincomparable financial judgment and sagacity.

The Fosters are very happy about this news, because even though they are not exactly poor, they have to look sharp in order to make ends meet, and they clearly do not see at all how the impeding inheritance should ever make them unhappy. Contents: Was It Heaven?

Two pencils had been busy during thathour--note-making; in the way of plans. It was an affectionate family, hence all four of its members had pet names, Saladin's was a curious and unsexing one--Sally; and so was Electra's--Aleck. Still up--and up--and up! Stunning news--joyous news, in fact. Electra, the wife is especially good at spotting and taking opportunities to increase their modest stock.

But Aleck went down and put it out. Man and wife entered into a solemn compact, now, to never mention thegreat news to any one while the relative lived, lest some ignorantperson carry the fact to the death-bed and distort it and make it appearthat they were disobediently thankful for the bequest, and just thesame as confessing it and publishing it, right in the face of theprohibition.
