A SERVANT GIRL'S MILLIONS. Among romances in real life a prominent place must be taken by that of the Scotch lassie, Elsie I Tyson-a humble "help" in America, who, it is said, finds herself the heiress of four millions, and is hastening home to her native Scotland. Following; the New York Journal the Express tells her story, and thus quotes Miss Tyson Then there are the letters I get, and some of them make me feel perfectly disgusted. Why, I have had 90 men offer to marry me whom I never saw. Just think of it I I have given away a great deal of money, but, do you know, I think it is a very serious thing to give people money and alter their lives when God planned them as he thought best? I am going to adopt two little children, orphans, whose mother was very kind to my mother, and there is a girl in Evanstown who was very fond of me where we were both poor, and she will g» to Scotland with me, and we will try to have some good times. I suppose 1 ought to give money to illinisteri and missions and all that, but I don't believe much in them. The ministers have been so awfuily attentive to me now, but when mother was was sick they hardly noticed her, yet she was very religious. I shall try and do my very best with the money, and have made the people I lived with quite rich already, and if only mother or father, or any of the children were alive I would be so happy. But they are all dead, and were always so poor, and now I have so much money it is a burden." A companion picture to this story is that of the nurse of New York who has been left £ 600,000, by a Berlin merchant, whom she nursed in hospital, but whose offer of marriage her parents would not allow her to accept because he was consumptive.
