The Will of John Marshall Glenarm.
Pickering's' letter bringing news of
my grandfather's death found me at
Naples early in October. John
Marshall Glenarm had died in June,
leaving a will which gave me his prop-
erty conditionally, Pickering wrote,
end it was necessary for me to return
immediately to qualify as legatee. It
was by the merest luck that the letter
came to my hands at all, for it had
been sent to Constantinople, in care
of the consul-general instead of my
banker there, and it was not Picker-
ing's fault that the consul was a friend
of mine who kept track of my wander-
ings and was able to hurry the execu-
tor's letter after me to Italy, where
I had gonq to meet an English finan-
cier who had, I was advised, unlimited
money to spend on African railways.
I am an engineer, a graduate of an
American institution familiarly known
as "The Tech," and as my funds were
running low I naturally turned to my
profession for employment.
But this letter changed my plans,
and the following day I cabled Pick-
ering of my departure and was out-
ward bound on a steamer for New
York. Fourteen days later I sat in
Pickering's office in the Alexis Build-
ing and listened intently while he
read, with much ponderous emphasis,
the provisions of my grandfather's
will. "When he concluded I laughed.
Pickering was a serious man, and I
was glad to see that my levity pained
him. I had, for that matter, always
been a source of annoyance to him,
and his look of distrust and rebuke
did not trouble me In the least.
I reached across the table for the
paper, and he gave the sealed and be-
ribboned copy of John Marshall Glen-
arm's will into my hands. I read It
through for myself, feeling conscious
meanwhile that Pickering's cool gaze
was bent inquiringly upon me. These
are the paragraphs that interested me
"I give and devise unto my said
grandson, John Glenarm, sometime a
resident of the city and state of New
York, and later a vagabond of parts
unknown, a certain property known as
Glenarm House, with the lands and
hereditaments thereunto pertaining
and hereinafter more particularly de-
scribed, and all personal effects, goods
and other property that may be
located in the premises and on the
land herein described,—the said realty
lying in the county of Wabana in the
state of Indiana,—upon this condition,
faithfully and honestly performed:
"That said John Glenarm shall re-
main an occupant of said Glenarm
House and of my lands appurtenant
thereto, demeaning himself meanwhile
in an orderly and temperate manner,
Should he fail at any time during said
year to comply with this provision,
said property shall at once revert to
my general estate, shall become, with-
out reservation and without necessity
for any process of law the property,
absolutely, of Marian Devereux, of the
county and state of New York.'
"Well," he demanded, striking his
hands upon the arms of his chair,
"what do you think of it?"
For the life of me I could not help
laughing again. There was, in the
first place, a delicious irony in the
fact that I should learn through him
of my grandfather's wishes with re-
spect to myself. Pickering and I had
grown up in the same town in Ver-
mont: we had attended the same pre-
paratory school, but there ^ ad been
from boyhood a certain antagonism
between us. He had always succeeded
where I failed, which is to say, I must
admit, that he had succeeded pretty
frequently. When I refused to settle
down to my profession, but chose to
see something of the world first, Pick-
ering gave himself seriously to the
law, and there was, I knew from the
beginning, no manner of chance that
he would fail.
I am not more or less than human,
and I remembered with joy that once
I had thrashed him soundly at the
prep school for bullying a smaller boy,
but our score from school days was
not without tallies on his side. He
was easily the better scholar—I grant
him that; and he was shrewd and
plausible. You never quite knew the
extent of his powers and resources,
and he had. I always mantained, the
most amazing good luck.—as witness
the fact that John Marshall Glenarm
had taken a friendly Interest In him
grandfather shabbily. My parents died
when I was a child, and he had cared
for me as far back as my memory ran.
He had suffered me to spend the for-
tune left by my father without re-
straint; he had expected much of me.
and I had grievously disappointed him.
It was his hope that I should devote
myself to architecture, a profession
for which he had the greatest admira-
tion, whereas I had insistod on
I am not writing an apology for my
life, and I shall not attempt to extenu-
ate my conduct in going abroad at the
end of my course at Tech and, making
Laurance Donovan's acquaintance, set-
ting oft with him on a career of ad-
venture. I lio not regret, though pos-
Bibly It would be more to my credit if
I did, the months spent in leisurely
following the Danube east of the Iron
Gate—Laurrnce Donovan nlways with
me, while we urged the villagers and
Inn-loafers to all manner of sedition,
acquitting ourselves so well that,
when we came out into the Black sea
for further pleasure, Russia did us the
honor to keep a spy at our heels. I
should like, for my own satisfaction,
at least, to set down an account of
certain affairs in which we were con-
cerned at Belgrad, but without Larry's
consent I am not at liberty to do so.
Nor shall I take time here to describe
our travels in Africa, though our Btudy

honorable mention by the British
These were my yesterdays; but to-
day I sat In Arthur Pickering's office
in the towering Alexis Building, con-
scious of the muffled roar of Broad-
way, discussing the terms of my
grandfather Glenarm's will with a man
whom I disliked as heartily as it is
safe for one man to dislike another.
Pickering had asked me a question,
and I was suddenly aware that his
an old friend of his,—Miss Evans,
known as Sister Theresa. Miss Dever-
eux is Sister Theresa's niece."
I whistled. I had a dim recollection
that during my grandfather's long wld-
owerhood there were occasional re-
ports that he was about to marry. The
name of Miss Evans had been men-
tioned in this connection. I had heard
It spoken of in my family, and not, I
remembered, with much kindness.
Later I heard of her joining a Sister-
hood. and opening a school somewhere
in the West.
"And Miss Duvereux,—is she an
elderly nun, too?"
"I don't know how elderly bhe is,
but she Isn't a nun at present. Still,
she's very much alone in the world,
and she and Sister Theresa are very
"Pass the will again, Pickering,
while I make mire I grasp these divert-
ing ideas. Sister Theresa isn't the
one I mustn't marry is she? It's the
other ecclesiastical embroidery artist,
—the one with the "x" in her name,
suggesting the algebra of my vanish-
I read aloud this paragraph:
"Provided, further, that in event
said John Glenarm aforesaid shall
marry the said Marian Devereux. or
in the event of any promise or con-
tract of marriage between said per-
sons within five years from the date of
said John Glenarm's acceptance of
the provisions of this will, the whole
estate shall become the property abso-
lutely of St. Agatha's School, at An-

eyes were fixed upon me and that he
awaited my answer.
"What do I think of it?" I repeated.
"I don't know that it makes any dif-
ference what I think, but I'll tell you,
if you want to know, that I call it in-
famous, outrageous, that a man should
leave a ridiculous will of that sort be-
hind him. All the old money-bags
who pile up fortunes magnify the im-
portance of their money. They Im-
agine that every kindness, every ordi-
nary courtesy shown them, is merely
a bid for a slice of the cake. I'm dis-
appointed in my grandfather. He was
a splendid old man, though God knows
he had his queer ways. I'll bet a thou-
sand dollars, if I have so much money
in the world, that this scheme is yours,
Pickering, and not his. It smacks of
your ancient vindictiveness, and John
Marshall Glenarm had none of that in
his blood. laat stipulation about my
residence out there is fantastic. I
don't have to be a lawyer to know
that; and no doubt I could break the
will; I've a good notion to try it, any-
"To be sure. You can tie up the
estate for a half dozen years if you
like," he replied coolly. He did not
look upon me as likely to become a
formidable litigant. My staying qual-
ities had been proved weak long ago,
as Pickering knew well enough.
"No doubt you would like that." I
answered. "But I'm not going to give
you the pleasure. I abide by the terms

I suppose some one will try to marry

"I should hardly call you a marry-
ing man," he observed.
"Perfectly right, my friend! Sister
Theresa was considered a possible
match for my grandfather in my
youth. I'm quite out of it with her.
And the other lady with the fascina-
ting algebraic climax to her name,—
she, too, is impossible; it seems that I
can't get the money by marrying her.
I'd better let her take It. She's as
poor as the devil, I dare say."
"I imagine not. The Evanses are a
wealthy family, in spots, and she
ought to have some money of her own,
if her aunt doesn't coax it out of her
for educational schemes."
"And where on the map are these
lovely creatures to be found?"
"Sister Theresa's school adjoins your
preserve; Miss Devereux has, I think,
some of your own weakness for travel.
Sister Theresa is her nearest rela
tive, and she occasionally visits St
Agatha's—that's the school."

cloths together and otherwise labor

Haskell and Baker Hurl Missiles and
GUTHRIE: Pnlesatf,. Haskell of Mus-
kogee nnil Baker of Wewoka enlivened
the proceeding Saturday by hurling
missiles nnd epithets nt each other on
the floor of the convention. The lie was
passed and Haskell seized a paper weight
and threw It at Baker's head. Baker re-
turned the compliment by throwing an
Ink stand full of Ink at Haskell, tha
latter dodging behind his desk to avoid
personal injury. The paper weight nilss
ed Baker's head by a fraction of an Inch
and struck a desk, splitting It. TU
delegates then started toward each othar.
SerKoant-at-Arms Durant cleared all
desks and made a foot ball tackle on
Baker, while his assistant, Pat Oats,
A spectator In the gallery, who was
coaching Baker In a loud tone of voice,
brought down a storm of disapproval
upon his head from delegates and left
before a motion was seconded to put
him out. The fight occurred during tha
discussion of the railroad provision.
Haskell declared that Baker was mis-
taken In all of bis assertions against
the measure, when the latter replied:
'I hope that Mr. Haskell, who has
all along denied his railroad affiliation*
will Pit now display the cloven hoof."
'If you make such a mean Insinuation
aa that you are a contemptible liar,"
'Then you are a liar," retorted Baker,
and the missiles began to fly.
Both men apologized to the conven-
tion, but not to each other. Delegate
McCance declared that If any mora
acenes of the kind were enacted endan-
gering the safety of the delegates, ha
would move to have the offending mem-
bers of the convention expelled.
Six sections of the provision which
will regulate the railroads and other pub-
lic service corporations of Oklahoma
were Incorporated In the constitution In
committee of the whole Saturday. Any
railroad, oil pipe line, car line, express,
telegraph or telephone corporation or
association organized or authorized to
do business under the laws of the state
shall have the right to construct and
operate Its lines between points within
the state, and to connect at the state
line with like lines and shall have the
right to cross or intersect any railroad
or other such line.
The aecond section compels every pub-
lic service corporation to transport each
other's passengers, tonnage and cars
loaded or empty, without delay or dis-
crimination, under rules prescribed by
the legislature or the corporation com-
mission. It is made mandatory upon
every oil pipe line to transport the oth-
er's tonnage of oils or other commodi-
ties under rules prescribed by the leg-
islature or commission, and every tele-
phone or telegraph company operated for
hire shall transmit each other's mes-
sages without delay or discrimination.
All railroads heretofore or hereafter
constructed are made public highways,
and all railroads . and other public serv-
ice corporations doing business in the
state shall maintain an office In the
■tate, where all books and records shall
be kept for Inspection, Including all in-
formation In regard to stock, assets and
liabilities. At least one meeting of the
stockholders shall be held In the state
annually and the president or superin-
tendent shall report annually or as often
as required by law to the corporation
commission. The rolling stock or other
movable property of public service cor-
porations shall be considered personal
property and Its real and personal prop-
erty shall be liable to execution the
same as property of individuals, and the
legislature can pass no laws abrogating
The remaining sections of this report,
twenty-seven in number, were consid-
ered Monday. The provisions are taken
almost bodily from the Texas and Vir-
ginia constitutions and statute laws.
Delegate Asp of Guthrie (republican),
introduced a substitute for the entire
railroad report, but it was tabled. Asp
declared that the committee report Is
cumbersome and makes no provision
whatever for the control of elevators or
compress companies by the commission.
He also declared that If adopted it will
stifle future railroad building in the

the committee provision would give' the

search for the northwest passage wa
for many years the object of rival ex<

a distinct national character to the

then, In 1612, came the illustrious and

reasons wherefore it will not be."

closed for two centuries with the voy-

Elght-Year-Old Muskogee Boy Locked

MUSKOGEE: Sealed In a refrigerator

Clifford Green, an eight-year-old boy
of this city, was rescued at Fayetteville,
Ark., and released from his prison, half
dead from privation with his fingers
bleeding because of the futile attempts
which he had made to claw his way to
freedom through the thick walled aides
of the car.
The boy was driven from his horns
tn this city about a week fcgo and
wandered Into the M., K. & T. railroad
yards. He climbed Into a refrigerator
ear and was soon sound asleep.
When he awoke the car was bumping
over the road and he was locked fast In
his prison. The car was finally side-
tracked at Fayettevlle, Ark. When It
was opened the lad was removed more
dead than allvs.
For six days and five nights he had
been locked In the Impenetrable dark-
ness of the car without rood or drink.

circumstances of the trip to the officers,
