But, in another moment, the little something-or-other, was back again in full force and so the battle had waged and was still waging. Weary as the boy felt with the struggle, he could not bring himself to the point of telling his mother all about the matter. Somehow, he felt this was a time when he himself must decide. He wanted tlm Imppy with all his boyish heart, wanted him so intensely that he could not, could not, get him out of his mind and thoughts. All the tricks he had planned to teach the dog; the hikes they would have to- gether; the names he and mother and Dad had considered with a view to the puppy's now imminent arrival. But, always with increasing insist- ence came the little something-or- other's voice, putting forth argument after argument, clearly, consistently beating upon every barrier raised by the boy's ntural desires. For a boy with Anth&iy's passionate, intense nature, those desires could not but be strong. In fact, by the time Anthony and his father reached the kennels that evening, the little troublesome some- thing-or-other seemed to be playing a I- , #.p losing game; for at sight of the pup- .'tag With some difficulty re- pies in the kennel-man's yard, the boy t.

His father listened attentively, interrupting rarely; and when the boy ceased speaking, ending with a half- stifled sob and the words: "Well, that's how it is, Dad, I can't have the pup--now." All the father could say was: "Good boy, Tony lad! I'm proud of you!" And strong, grown man though he was, Mr. Loring's own eyes were a bit moist at the brave boyish sacri- fice. "Do you know, Mary," he said later, to his wife, when Anthony had gone ,to bed, his usual sunny self, "do you know, that lad of ours has set me thinking, made me feel ashamed of myself, the brave, cheerful way he took the check I gave him and put it a#vay for those Chinamen of his! And he, eating his very heart out for a pup, too! And, Mary, see this," pro- ducing a substantial check from his inner pocket, "this check is going to be sent away in your name and mine! You and I can't let a mere boy be the only one in the family to do his bit, can we?" Some time later the Sister Superfor of St. Mary's announced that the hon- or of earning, really and truly earn- ing, the money for the most Chinese babies belonged to the class of Grade 4, Sister Teresa Marie, teacher. And of all the eager, excited, happy chil- dren who rejoiced at the announce- ment, none was so shining-eyed and happy as Anthony Lorhg.(S. H. Messenger. BORN AS TERENCE O'BRIEN John K. Stewart, millionaire head of the Sl:ewart-Turner Speedometer " corporation: was born forty-seven years ago in a little hanflet in the hills of Vermont, under the name Terence O'Brlen. it was revealed in surrogate's court, New York, at a hearing on a suit, brought by his daughter charg- ing the administrators with misman- aging the $7,000,000 estate. O'Brien went west to seek his for- tune at an early age. He obtained a job clipping horses, and entered into a sort of agreement with two other] lads, Arthur and Michael Conlon, that I they should all share in whatever for- tune any of them should win. Terence was an ingenious youth and when the horse clipping began to grow tiresome he invented a flexible shaft for his clippers to make it easier. The horse clipper made money for him and the principle of the flexible shaft, which he applied to other inventions, tarted him on the road to wealth. It was about this time that he changed his name, and when tm put his flexible shaft into a speedometer and organized a company to manufac- ture and handle it his fortune was made. When Stewart died the two part- ners of his youthful days, one of whom had changed his name to Mi- chael Clark, appeared to claim their share under the old imrtnership agree- ment. Their claim was considered valid enough to entitle Arthur F. Conlon to $85,000, under an order of the surro- gate's court of Suffolk county, New York, and Michael Clark $250,000 un- der order of a Chicago court. Supreme Justice Selah B. Strong, who was surrogate of Suffolk county at the time Conlon and Clark made their claim, verified the story of Stew- art's business romance.
