(UP] — Jitini-s M, CosU'llo, reputedly Lisbon's wi'atluest dli/en. had special inmll^atoi-fi lo make a quiet check of his 21 .second cousins (o whom he? senl c-at'ly "Christmas presents" of «1nr<n mcli—S|05,000 all icld— "Jusl to be sure" Ihe money would lj(' SIJI'Ill, widely. "J just. wniiK'd t« lif sine," explained the m-yoar-old former railroad conductor, "thai limy, wore persons who would Ijt worlliv j of the money; who would put it' lo (;ond, and not those who would ii-lllor it, away—and then demand more. Thai money came hnrd, il .should lie .spent earefullv." Apparently, the whiti'-haivi-d. niuslached philanthropist was sat- islifd with the reports turned in hy his invcsisjntors. because 21 of | Cosfello's second t'ousins--^leven in ! Wisconsin, four in Iowa, five in, Chicago and one in Connecticut- soon after found a check for $5 ODD in their'mail boxes. 1 f'ive Cons-ins 1 Answer Five of the cousins iminedialelv resimnded' after receiving their "gifls"—four wrote letters; one lel- C|ihoned from Milwaukee. Costello. I now enfeebled by rheumatism, was ' gratified. ''Those letters alone," he said, a trace of misl beclouding his still keen eyes, "well repaid me for the gifts," Costello received his fortune from his brother. Charles. The latter died 18 months ago. James M. Cnstello recalls thai it was at the side of Charlie's death-bed that' plans were made for distributioni of the $105.000. j "We must do something for our ' western cousins," Charles w as quoted by James as saying. "Altei nil, James, blood is thicker than water." Few of his "western cousins" ever had heard of Costello; several knew him only casually and only one or two ever had visitod at length with the aged railroad man. Th c Costello fortune (its size is not known but an inventory filed in nn accounting of Costello's estate showed assets of about S500.0M) was accumulated by Charles, foi- merly an official in a large Pills- burgh -wholesale confectionery con ccrh^__.pnt, another brother, 'and x the(r~sisler. The brothers and 'sister pooled their resources, thus piling up the present Costello fortune. lu Varifil Occupations Costello's preliminary investigation of the 21 second cousins he proposed to make richer bv S5.000. showed the 11 in Wisconsin to be a representative group. Thov include: Miss Margaret Meany. a field nurse with the Milwaukee health department. Agnes s. Glenson. MiUvnit- kee school teacher. Miss Lila Meanv. foriuerlv a private secretary, but unemployed at the lime her'check was received. Mrs. Marearet McDonald. Milwaukee, n widow. • Mrs. p. N. Reddin.

A be.-spectacled teller in a bank here was starlled when the first of the ,$5,000 checks started coming through. (Lisbon has a popula- j lion of aboul 3.500). He went promptly with the check to Ihe bank president. "Oh. that's all right." replied the president, "there'll be more of them. -Pay them all."
