All the way I bold them lightly chivied in my hand. Well, of eourse, what I might naturally expect to happen, did happen. Yes, that night u man entered my house through one of the area windows, H� bud men ir.e. as I 1 walked nonchalantly along the Kireet, �winging my roll of btl]>, and, wanting money, Iib came for it.

I tbea turned, fled up the dark stairway, clofted mad bolted the cellar door before my robber rcomprehead* 1 my pwpone. This luul been tiiy ifUan from the uiumuut we laft my room, but I had thought it would lie far more diUlcult of achievement.

"Auiraa V5b i'ivtern, upon whow brluk bo stood, existud only in my imagination, I felt no conipuno-tiuii in leaving him poised upon tbo board. Abl what along breath I drew an I shot that bolt into place I What u senso of relief mm mine. For Although 1 had spoken calmly, and had acted us if I felt no fear, I was In reality dorperutely afraid of this man. Now that he watt safely imprisoned in the collar, that fear changed into a deep resentment. What had I done, I aaked my&elf, tluit he should ubo me so roughly? Had I not obeyed himf My theyries did not recur to me then. Indeed, ok I rau Into the drawing room and opoued a window my only thought was to call in an officer and hare the man carried to the jail. No Inclination did I feel then to remonstrate or reason with the roan who had broken into my house, had threateued me, had clutched and shaken met For others, not for myself, were my theories that night. A policeman soon came down the street, and I called to him. As he stood under my window I hastily told him of tho burglar. ''First go for my brother," I added, "and then get him out of the cellar and carry bfrn otl." Geoffrey lived in the bouse facing mine, and, with the same strong feeling of resentment, I watched the ofBoer cross the street. Boon he rotur&ed, accompanied by my brother, who quite naturally greoted me with the remark: "I know your folly of today would luvite ftomsthuig of this sort]" One can pardon a slight acerbity of speech from a man who is aroused from hU slumbers in tho dead of night. I, therefore, took no notloe, and motioning Geoffrey to lead the way to the kitchen, I simply followed the two men to the landing and sat down upon tbo top stair, and waited for the end. Now that help had come, a strange torpor seemed to steal over me. Scarcely conscious of thought I sat there listless, motionless and slmnit. �hiiTfl�i| with tX,m tn.***-�lfrK ^* *--: 1 bad experienced. Suddenly, through the still bouse, rang e cry-a wild fierce cry of anguish and despair. Ah I what a cry was thatl To my dying day I shall bear it. And with that helpless, baffled cry, strange -unreasonable even as It must seem-all my resentful, my angry feelings, were forever swept away, aud an overwhelming pity for the ph-Honer tilled my heart. J sprang up and ran down staJrs. The officer was tying the man into a stout kitchen ohalr. "Oh!" 1 cried, "dow't do that; let bun go frto." Tho ollleer, whoso name was Htout, stared at me in umnzament, "Go freel" he repeated, "when we've caught him In the octr "He has taken nothing," I replied. "There was nothing for him to take. Release him, if you please." "Elixjibeth, why do you talk in this wild way," said my brother. "1 wish him to be released." '"lk-g portion, ma'am,'' said the man Stoat, "but it would be agin tho law to lot him go." "The law!" I repeated scornfully. "Oh, ves; the law has swift linger* [or poor, starving unfortunates, but has it fur tho rich rogues who Meal millions! 1 Insist, sir, that this mini Khali beat mire relcawd." "I'll go for tho wagon, Kir," wild tho officer in n low tone. "Very widl; I will remain here until you ik (urn, "No," I cried, springing forward. I won too late. With a grin upon his sly, detestable face, Mr. Ktout shut, tho door a� I reached it. 1 turned to Geoffrey in a fury of rage and sorrow. "Howdare her" I gasped, "He shall pay for this. Hti thrill learn that this is my bouse. He shall understand that if I chtKtse to re-lsose a burglar instead of entering a complaint 1 tmall do It- The odious, bard hearted brutel" "EHsalwth, you uro excited, fray look at the matter reasunably. This man-a common burglar, breaks Uito your house, nnd;i- "Oh, don't," i interrupted. "Suppose he did, whose folly led him to it? Not ten minutes ago you answered that question. And he isn't a common burglar. You1 re not, are you?" turning suddenly upon the prisoner. HeKhook hit; hood. "There! 1 know It.

I am so sorry I It is ull my fault 1 Geoffrey, do you hear! It Is all my fault) Aud tliiH poor man will be sent to prison, and I, the guilty one, will go free] But, with a hiuldeu resolve, "1 will aare for you family. You may trust me. I will do it, I would do anything to save youl" The man's eyas had been upon the floor. Now hu raised them aud looked at me. "Thank you, ma'am," ho said, "maybe you can help me yet." There was in his voice an appealing. Imploring accent, I thought, and an appeal iu the oyea, looking into mine. "Anything 1 can do I will," I replied. "It was I who tempted you. I shall never forget that my reckless folly led you to this." "It was tho devil tempted mo," bg said. "If I'd a hod work he wouldn't ha1 caught me so easy. And," as he saw the tears streaming down my cheeks, "it I hadu't ha' iseen your pile he'd ha' led me Into something. I couldn't ha' gone home without nothing lor the old woman an1 the little girls. His last words fell almost unheedtd u^on my oar.

It was my fault, you know; only do lio honest, ami don't, don't drink! I trust you. I believe all you said 1 1 fcuow your Btory it true!" Thero words and a fow more of kindred nature I said to the prisoner. And then Geoffrey returned, and at tho same momeu*. Mr. Stent entered with a subordinate. With a queer, choking sonattou 1 looked at the prisoner as he gave mo a {inrting glanca of gratitude. Nat an hour iMnen I desired his capture, and now how ardently I longed for his freedom. Well, boforo morning he would have it, 1 comforted myself. 1 turned to Geoffrey after the lust sound of wheels had lied away. "You didn't Ixdiovn tho man's story! I did.

"To-morrow I" 1 thought, with a thrill of triumph, "to-morrow he will bo on the road to Canada." I was very late the next morning, and while 1 wus at breakfast Geoffrey joined me. "1 have been down to the station," he said. "Ycsf Did you see the-the man-tho- there? I will not coll him a burglar. He was not a burglar by choice. And, income quently, he told me that his name was James Scott.1' "I did not see James Scott, Elizabeth. Did you expect that I would bring you word that I had seen him!"

"Do not bo over sanguine, my dear. The law sometimes moves slowly." "Ob," I replied, "it is quite useless to attempt to frighten me. What proof can nny one discoverf "Well, well." said my brotbor, "hide your money from public ol�ervation Iu the future, and never again attempt to defeat tho ends of public justice." "Justice! pray do not speak to me of justice, Geoffrey!" Moving somewhat uneasily in his chair, my brother asked, "Do you intend to hunt up the man's wife!" "Directly I have eaten my breakfast, I promised hiro," "Where is the placef" "Conteu street. Do you know whero it lar "In a wretched part of the city; apart where children swarm and disease lurks every tenement." "Htill, It was home to him; and my folly has driven him from it." "Not much to regret," said Geoffrey, "in leaving that locality." "It was the beat he could afford, I pre sume!" "Well, well," somewhat testily, "the man has escaped and, so far us I um concerned, there's an end of the affair. As for you," shrugging his shoulders, "well, you women must always have some hero, mid, perhaps, in your ca.se, it may us well be be us another. Pray drop the subject now, Eliuibcth.

"Well, well, so I will; and then 1 beg you will not mention him again. If you had not invited burglary we fbuuld nevtr have heard of the i>oor wretch. I do hoi*o it will b� a lesson to you." "It will," I answered meekly. Home years after this experience, yet before uiy second marriage, 1 wont to Canada with a party of frieuds. We halted for a few-days' sojourn at G-.   The evening sue ceedlug our arrival was clear aud bright, and our party sallied forth for n walk through the bustling, populous town. Hut feeling well, I remained at tho iun. As 1 sat by the windowh In the public parlor watching the throngs of quuintly dressed people passing to and fro, something, I know not what, brought back tho eveuts of that memorable night, and I determined that upon the morrow I would induce my brother to visit Mr. Kirko's factory. "1 will go with him," 1 thought, aud 1 smiled as I recalled how unwittiugly my brother followed all my wishes in the mat-tor. "I always could manage him," I said, "and ho never �uspecta it." At that moment a servant brought mo message.   "A man is outside asking if ho may see you." "Are you sure he did nut ask for Mr, Frost!" "No, ma'am," respectfully, "he said Mrs. Rout." "Show him in, then. But, stay, did he give you no card!" "No, ma'am." The waiter hesitated u moment. Then, "He's not-bo's not, so to �peak, a gentleman, mn'ain. Not that h� isn't quite respectable." "Very well, you may show him in." I felt uo curiosity. "It Is an employe of Mr. Kirko'a, probably," I said to myself, as I turned again to the window; "tbo waiter made a mistake, uo doubt." A moment later the door was again opened by the waiter. "The"-coughing uncertainly-"the man, ma'am." "Good evening, sir," I said, rising and going forward; "you wished to see me!
