The traces of his- illness had almost vanished ; he looked well, handsome, nnd ruddy, as he lounged there in a suit of cool flannels, with a cigar in his mouth and a book open in one hand.

Cranks Who Hide Money. + BANK-NOTES CONCEALED IN BOOKS. Among" the eccentricities of the rich, the passion for always possess ing enormous sums of ready cash is surely one of the most -extraordi nary. A former Lord Pysart one day asked a companion-nurse to go to town and get a cheque cashed for him at the Bank ot' England. When she was ready to start the peer sat down and wrote out a cheque for £100,000, and told her to Vie sure and sec that she got one note for the whole amount. The cheque was duly presented, and the Hank, ^ having-satisfied themsel ves as to the nurse's authority for making such a "request, suggested that a clerk should accompany her and hand tlie £100,000 note in per son .to his lordship. After having done so the clerk told the peer that only three such notes were in existence. "One," he said, "we have at the Bank, another I have just handed to your lordship, and the third, which some time ago disap peared from circulation, wo liaVo never been able to trace." Per...
