Ton years' before 1 lie- time at which this sketch is opened he - — and-Louis Douglas started in business • .with a small cash capital and,an abundance of .enterprise and pluck. By close attention ami hard work tlio firm had made siiccess assured, and, while the principal stores nnd factory were Ideated 'in Boston, extensive branches had been opened in New York nnd Chicago, to which of the last named cities Mr, Mor> " .ten was often called on business. . In "facty" bei ng'" 11 ie~ pr i nci pal" sal cam a n as well as head of the firm, he~\vas com,' pelled to bo absent from homo a greater part of the year. At tho time this fitovy begins he was busily occupied in settling tlio details of several largo contracts which had been under consideration during tho week previous, and many gentlemen wero awaiting his decision as to these and other matters. Ono hy ono each of the •waiting customers was attended to, and only one person remained, with whom Mr, Morton was not acquainted, but who insisted on transacting his busino.sH with J the head of the firm only, and to him at last Mr. Morton inquiringly turned, saying: "Well, sir, what can I do for your" :" "Tri: parenthesis let ua here say that for - —many—years, and nt-intervels-of~-lmt a few months in each year, Henry Morton , had been greatly disturbed and deeply grieved in the knowledge of t he fact that •. an older brother, GJI whom rum had fastened its clutches with a firm grasp, had '•' been going from bad to worse; had ncg- . lected his business nnd family, and at the same time bringing a moral disgrace upon the name, which facts wero only kept from publicity by tho expenditure of a great deal of money and anxiety on the part of the younger brother. Time and again ho had taken his . .brother Jtick from tho Tombs. Repcat- ; .edly had ho paid the fine in advance and saved him from appearance in the police 1 ' court; often secured his release through tho friendship and respect of the probation officer, and yet, with all these and the fact that tho whole care of Jack's family had been thrown upon him, there was no sign of reformation on the older brother's part. ", " ^ The cliiiuix camo one day after hearing that Jack had borrowed money iu his name from a regular customer of the _ firm, which was paid without question, but caused Henry to arrive at a decision immediately. This decision forbade tho presence of his brother at the store of tho firm or at tho dwelling house of Henry, •with orders that Jack should not be admitted into cither phico under any circumstances. Henry was greatly surprised and • pleased, shortly after, to hear that such a decision had been tho means of sobering up his older brother, whoso eves wero apparently opened to the folly/and disgrace of his past life, and that ho had obtained a situation at his old trade and to all intents and purposes showed that he was onco again on tho path of virtue uhd good morals. •. Jack's children and wifo occasionally appeared at Henry's store, and in Jus private office, with tears and smiles, related tho story of their father's upward • turn and the joy which had como again into their own household. And so it was that on the day on which this story opens Henry was at peace with all tho world, Avith no skeleton in the closet at home and with every success in business and a hope of speedy retirement and a quiet life. •^- "I should liko to see you, Mr. Morton, in your private office, if you please, on business personal to yourself," was tho ply of the individual to whom Henry Morton had made tho inquiry before mentioned. "Very well, sir, step this way," and after passing into tho private office Morton said again: _ "Please be as brief as possible, sir, aa I am a very busy mfi.n today." "Tho business, sir, which bringn me here'is not of a .pleasant nature. I am John Hardnian of. the Novel-sleep Detective agency, and I am here in reference to a check on which the indorsement of Castell & Co. lias 'been forged and tho -amount collected upon the same bv your brother." •;-.' -"Great heaven!" exclaimed Henry, "it / cannot bel Jack may have been adrunk- ," ard, but never a forger and a. thief!" \•••• t "I am sorry for you, sir, but it is too I .true; I have followed the matter up, sir, '•;'.. and find that ho was given a bill to collect by Castell & Co., .for whom ho y Avorka, which he did collect, and mcet- /• ing soine old cronies .soon after he in- \/dorsed the firm's mime upon tho same, --—.obtained tho amount, and by this time! t .-...., S p en {. ft a |j - n cim - ms j n ,/- }.. mn y -at- a-placo where 1 can put my ( ^ ...--..J on-him ut any. momont." ik;';v'.;;/'Great heaven! what shall 1 do?

"Five hundred and twenty dollars, sir. and our expenses added will make tho cost to you, sir, $700." "Very well, sir; be .seated 'a few moments longer, Mr. Hardnmn," said Henry, at the same thnu striking a small bell on vhe top of his desk. "Charles, bring me my private checkbook from tho vault," he said to tho young man who answered the cull. When tho checkbook was given to Henry he sat down, and with a trembling hand filled out two chocks — ono payable to the order of Caste! I & Co. Cor I..V.O and Ihi.' other payable to tho treasurer of this "Neversleep Detective agen-- cy" for £loO, "There, sir; please give mo a receipt for the check to Castell & Co. Your treasurer's indorsement will bo sufficient for the other. And now, sir, the check on which is the forged indorse- ment. Thanks; that will do. Have a cigar, sir? Good day, sir, and thanks again- for-your kindness and- consideration." £3. For fully lo minutes Henry Morton gazed upon the terrible evidence of hie brotliof s gui It, and then opening a little iron box in which ho kept all personal papers' he mechanically tossed it in, locked the box, .went out of the private office smoking a cigar, met his partner Douglas with his usual welcome and plunged- again into the Inisiness of hia daily life. 7f tt # * * If- Business stagnated suddtmly. A crash came; money was scarce; the firm of Morton, Douglas & Co. wero found overstocked. Eesult— failure, but not" disgrace. Both partners surrendered all their private estates for tho benefit of creditors, and they, as n firm, were swept out of existence, They tried far awhile to do a commission business, but wero obliged to give it up, and each was financially in close quarters, even for tho necessaries of life. "Why not see your brother Jack, my dear," said Henry's wifo to him, aa he returned homo downcast ono evening after darkness had set in. "1 hear that ho has saved up ppnsidcrabjp jnpney up4 only tho other night hia wifo told me that they wero about to build a now house 011 tho nvonuo. Surely after p,}} you have done for him (Henry's wife knew "nothing^ about the forged check) ho will help you by the return of a few of tho many dollars he has obtained from you. Our new landlord insists upon Imvnig his overdue rent, and wo need money for groceries. The cupboard shelves are almost empty, and you really ought to sco your brother." "I'll do it, by Jovel" replied Henry, "much as 1 dislike to do it. Still, he cannot refuse under tho circumstances," and putting on .hia hat Henry left bis homo with expectations of n quick and pleasant return. Henry found his brother at home, took him into a room where they could be alone, aud told his story. His surprise can be imagined when his brother Jack blurted out: "Can't do it, Henry; need every dollar I have. "You'll have to go to somebody else. It's no use expecting anything from me. No, sir; nol" "Why, you scoundrel I Wero it not that tho same mother bore us both 1 would kill you where J-QU stand 1 Now, under no circumstances, ever speak to me again, and never darken tho doors of my house as long" as you live. By Heaven!" Henry exclaimed suddenly, as if the recollection of something had been forced upon him, "I have at home, among my private papers, that which will make you open your pocketbook and decide which of us will do tho begging in future!" And pulling his hat firmily over his eyes Henry Morton darted out of his brother's house into tho darkness and with firm set lips and gritting teeth started at a quick pace for his home. When he reached his own doorstep his paco slackened, and slowly and quietly entering tho house a7id ascending the hall stairs to his room ho lighted the gas, found the iron box in which hia papers were kept, and after opening it he readily put his hand upon tho paper which he had determined to use in order to obtain bread and butter for his family. Lifting tho forged paper to tho light to be certain ho had made no mistake, his eyes woro attracted to a black bordered "In Memoriam" which hung above his desk, on which was plainly printed: : HEIITHA MOUTON. : : Ron.viau.'. l)iKi)]8S2. I : or buch Is tlio Kingdom of Heaven. : Steadily his eyes rested upon the face of tho aged mother whoso photograph attached gave sad evidence of tho life gono out, and as his eyes filled with tears his hands mechanically toro into a hundred pieces the evidence of a crime which might bo used to- his own advantage, or to gratify his revenge. Ho quietly opened tho stove door— a moment later — ashes! Did he forgive him? God knows.— W.-v S. Goodwillie in Truo Flag. Ucnclly I'niSHlc Aclil.
