"WHERE did this come from, then?” “I am sure I don’t know. I never saw it before.” The Indian woman came to the door, saw the bundle, and broke into a volley of Ojibway. The woodsman replied in the same tongue and then threw the bundle at her.

How Hackett Won a Fortune: And How Another Came to Him

THE Canadian papers were bristling with a choice bit of news. A bit of news such as would make most papers bristle. In short, the descent of sudden fortune. The news of such a descent will cause a flutter of excitement in the most blase. What must it have caused amongst the citizens of Wolfe Island, Ont.?—citizens who are not in the least blase.

IF one cared to trace the analogy in detail, there would doubtless be found many points of similarity between such families as the Cawthras of Toronto, and the Astors of New York.
