(Jlcary In New York Ledgfir. BURGLAR AND BUTLER, There was once an honest burglar named William Stubba, familiarly called "Cock Eyed Bill," on account of a slight visual discrepancy. He was a quiet, unassuming individual, who asked for nothing tnoro than to be permitted to follow his peaceful calling without molestation. Perhaps In the golden future when tin*. Ixmdon county conntdl get** the. control of tho Metropolitan police hit* modest aspirations may lie realized; but under tho existing Wntnl regime he was subjected to perpet^ mil irritating and tyrannical interference. An a free born Briton and a man of spirit he resented thb* �Uite of things very strongly, and, on principle, ho never lost an opportunity of assaulting a constable. Consequently he was generally "wanted," and was forced to lend an Ishmmditish sort of existence, which soured his temper; but neither justice nor prison fare could mar the manly straightforwardness of his char-net er, and if he wanted any! Mug he took it, though there might l*� u dozen constables around the corner and a long list of previous convictions hanging over his head. When Bill had a faury to crack a crib-to use ins own homely phrase-he always worked single handed, partly from sturdy Independence of disposition and partly bo-cuiim' lie disliked the pro lit sharing system. He shrank from haggling, even with a [ml. mid sooner than do this he had frequently appropriated the whole proceeds, of a joint enterprise. Thin had led to so iou'-Ii unpleasantness- for Ids associates were not all large minded men like himself-that Bill had for yeJirs declined all offers of partnership. The method he usually purnned wan to rely entirely upon his own sagacity and courage, but if he chanced to inert with a useful confederate in the tdiape of a trustworthy butler or eon tiding cook he did not disdain such as-fristJince. It was in thus manner that the baneful Bhndow of Mr. Jenkins crossed his path. The shrewdest judge of character is occasionally mistaken, and Bill always considered that he was bitterly deceived by the physiological indications of Mr. Jenkins' open countenance. Mr. Jenkins wa/; butler of a fmnily in i*arb lane, and Bill made his acquaintance in the hack parlor of the "Pig and Whistle," a snug hosttdry much frequented by the betting and sporting ftvdentity of (he neighborhood. A fporting but Icr wlio plunged as heavily as Mr. Jenkins did must, needs \k\ thought honest Bill, mm of the right nort, and this impression was cuuiiiiued by his new friend's entirely voluntary suggestion to put him up Ui a good thing, llis proposal ( -wjis that Bill should visit the residence of the family in Park lane in the way of busi-iics-, mill bring away with him a few sou-enirs fiinu the plat*; chest. r. Jenkins naiveiy confessed tliat Ids et wiw to recunp himself for losses iu-thrutigh having hacked a series of ^('uns throughout tho recent sejiaou, -''idhe relied on Bill's generosity to his exchequer.  This explanation iAV; satlsfatUtry to Bill, who pos-..n.*3fl vorldly wisdom to mis- s�ii in aucn a position as to oar nis poasa^o to t\w window, which coiiftttnted tho otoly available iuoahs of exit. Bill no sooner iTAllted this than he was seized with fterco desperation which prompted him to whip uut. his revolver and rush blindly forward. Stand back," ha id a quiet, thin voice from, the staircase-, "twonty-two pac�ft Is the right distance." Bill pausud abruptly, less in obedisace to the stranger's rwpuest than because he found himself confronted by the muutle of another revolver. Thlt was � new find disagreeable sensation. BUI b&d on occasions used his own weapon so effectively that he felt no desire whatever to become practically acquainted with the contents of anybody else's. Ue Instinctively gueswed that his opponent's aim was unerring, and apart from this there was a ring of decision In the cracked voice which, seamed to cow him. "That is right," said the stranger encouragingly as Bill sulkily dropped his arm. "You needn't bo frightened, my* man; I ihui't wish to harm you. Como up stairs and have a chat." The stranger rose as he spoke and stepped aside, inviting BUI to mount tho staircase by a friendly gesture of his hand. For au instant Bill hesitated, but only for au instant. He was so dazed and startled that, hardly conscious of what he did, he meekly advanced, and presently found himself in the entrance hall on the floor above. The strauger followed him closely, revolver in hand-a circumstance which accounted In a great measure for Bill's submissive demeanor. 'Step in hero," said the strauger politely, turning aside Into one of the rooms. " [� then proceeded to set light to the gas, mid this circumstance, slight as it was, made considerable ImpressTou upon Bill, for with professional caution our friend's first st*p upon entering the house had been to assure himself that the gas was turned off at the meter, and the stranger's action revealed that he had been equally circumspect from his own point of view. The idea t hat while preoccupied with business his companion must have passed within a few feet of him seemed to Bill a triflo hu- miliating. Though he had uot had leisure to bestow a thought about the stranger's identity Bill had insensibly arrived at the conclusion that he was in the presence of Mr. Jenkins' master, and he felt nomtvwhat embarrassed and diffident in consequence. "Pray take a seat," said the gentleman ,ju0�jices, uud ho agreed , nGt^BjuV<; the ru  slept on the '.'tudow in Uhs , pitched.  Bill e-ions without '".ving opened '{ a duplicate itly arranged 1 bugs,    Mr, .here to lay '  deles, and p08~ifqrtably which �CI subsiding Into a capacious arm chair, am delighted that I happened unexpectedly to come homo to-night. It was very absurd of mo, but, do you know, 1 have always regarded your profession as some what mythical." This was Greek to Bill, who nevertheless vaguely resented the imputation, whatever it might mean. But the truth wiw that the imperturbable coolness or condescension of his companion's tone anil manner hurt his amour prop re, ,lI kuew, of course, that there were such persons as burglars and house breakers, but 1 in*vvr hoped it would be my good fortune to come across one.   I shall bo do- | lighted to have a chat with you.   You j really must lie seated," added his host, in a 1 slightly aggrieved tone. Conversation under any circumstances was not Bill's forte, and ho felt singularly disinclined to prolong the interview; but the elderly gentleman was so pressing that our friend half involuntarily deposited his person on the extreme edge of a chair and stared at his companion with increasing embarrassment. "1 regard your craft, my friend, as a relic of the bold buccaneering spirit which in other days helped to make England glorious,"' said his host, contemplating him , dreamily through the smoke of bis cl^ax. j "Civilization has a great deal to answer ir.   llvA you lived in the reign of, let us ny, Queen Elizabeth, you might have-been a popular h�.*ro." Bill knewnothingof the historical period re/erred to, but ho gathered that the allusion was in the nature of a personal com-pliim-iit and therefore felt more at ease. "What we. want in these days is a legitimate occlusion for the exercise of those talents which you possess. If there were still rich galleons on the Spanish main, loaded to the hatches with gold ingots and pieces of eight, waiting to be. captured, do you imagine that your courage and your energy and your splendid disregard of the laws of uieum and tumn would not have been directed to worthier objectsthan housebreaking? My friend, those brawny hands of yours would have grasped other tools than the jimmy and silent matches." Bill grunted acquiescent, for his imagination wjih tired by the prospect of rich plunder, whether  he embarrassing silence by saying sharply: "Tills won't do, my friend. It is clever, but it won't do. Oblige me by touching the bell at your elbow." "It's a plant!" cried Bill, with violence, which left no doubt of his sincerity.' "A plant!" repeated his host, eying him severely. "Do you mean to say that you, a professional burglar, seriously believed that these things represented the contents of my plate chest?" "I was took iu, guv'nor; regular rotted, and no kid," said Bill, with abject frankness. "ReallyI   Is it possiblel" exclaimed his j host, tn ti tone of mingled surprise and I contempt which fairly made Bill's blood I boil.   "What do you mean?" he added, after a moment's pause. "The party who put theui things there has got your silver plate, guv'nor," said B1U energetically. The party!   What partyF" now do I know?" returned Bill, whose temper was thoroughly roused.   "I didn't put them then1." I have had my suspicions for a long time that my butler, Jenkins, is dishonest," said the elderly gentleman abruptly. Now, frankly, what do you think?" "It do look queer, don't it, guv'nor?" said Bid, who felt quite tiituously indignant. Come, my friend, it strikes me tlist we are fellow sufferers at the hands of. Jenkins, so I ask your unbiased oplniou. Doesn't it look to you us though Jenkins, having appropriated my plate, designed to conceal the robbery and escape scot tree by-ahem I-a little ruse?" insinuated the elderly gentleman, knowingly. He wouldn't dare. He would know I'd wring his neck," cried Bill fiercely. "I was surprised to learn from my housekeeper that he had gone into the country. Post'ibly he anticipated some little unpleasantness," said the host, smiling. Curse him! I'll follow him wherever he's gone," exclaimed Bill, rendered furious by the conviction that he had been imposed upon. "Perhaps you might assist me to get my property back," suggested the elderly gentleman hopefully, "We'll see about that, guv'nor. Wait till I come up, that's all," muttered Bill between his teeth, rising unsteadily. "SIihII I inform the police?'' inquired his host. "No, guv'uors leave it to me," said Bill, with an oath. "You've treated me like a gentleman, and I'll act on the square by you. If I can't get your property I'll let you know." It is to be feared that our friend did not seriously contemplate fulfilling his promise, but the elderly gentleman seemed to entertain no misgivings upon the point, and was profuse iu his expressions of satisfaction. He insisted upon giving Bill his card, which bore his name and an address iu the city to which communications were to be sent, and showed his visitor out by the front, door, with many iLssurHm.es th'at ha would he well rewarded foe his services. Bill was hardly in a condition of mind to rejoice, as he otherwise might ut recovering his liberty, for between the humiliation at the ignominious fuiluroof bis promising enterprise and wruth at the treachery of Mr. Jenkins his worst passions were aroused. But he nevertheless felt immensely relieved to escape from tm> presence of the elderly gentleman, who had contrived to inspire him with isentimenta of awe and respect, which were very gulling to his melt esteem. It was indeed a savage satisfaction to our friend to be able to divert his thoughts from tho degrading reminisceuce ot his recent Interview by planning schemes of vengeance a�Ainst Mr. Jenkins. With this object therefore he betook himself early on tho following morning, to an ot/scure east and tavern, where he hud old 'un lias tooK and walked rouna you. Ue is � sly fox, is my master; he must have got wind of what was going on, ana* thought he'd have a game with you. The things were there all ready for you wIibu I came away. You've rut net! mo ami chucked away a first class job." "That's right-say it was my fault!" ejaculated Bill, somewhat discomfited by this unexpected rejoinder. "Well, I thought you was a man and not a baby! To go and walk Into a trap like thatl" exclaimed Mr. Jenkins, with transparent annoyance. This was man than Bill could stand. A sudden suspicion that Mr. JenklnV reproaches were not unmerited filled him with blind but furious resentment, and he immediately went for his companion with a vigor and fury which proved quite irresistible. The butler, who was a heavy, un-athletic person, succumbed to the attack like a pricked bladder, and raised such on upmar that the unwelcome apparition ot a policeman disturbed the harmony of the proceeding?. Bill was lgnoinlniously walked off to the lockup, and although Mr. Jenkinu, for private reasons, doomed it Inexpedient to appear In support of a charge of assault our friend was affectionately detained by bis hosts on other charges, with the ultimate result that ho retired from this busy work-aday world for a lengthened period into the seclusion of penal oervitude. lie employed what lit tie letsore ho had in anathematizing Mr. Jcukiiu, for he clung almost pathetically to the belief that he was the victim of that person's deceit, lest he should be forced to the unpleasant and deeply humiliating conclusion that Mr. Jenkins' master had cleverly concerted o highly successful plan for punishing both the burglar and his accomplice at the least personal inconvenience to himself.-Lron don Truth. A. Case ot Somnolence. I was asked to sec an old lady in Minne apolis, 83 years of age, who had enjoyed good heulth. She was comfortable, lying in bed, pulse 00, tongue clean aud temperature normal, Tho following day when I made my visit to her she was sleeping, and (as this was quite late in the day, and she had slept all tho time since I bad seen her the day before, I feared she had been taking some narcotic; but of this there was no other evidence save sleep. I saw her day after day for three weeks, during widen time she continued to sleep day and night con stoutly, only when awakened to take some liquid nourishment, and then she would perhaps partly answer a question and fall Into a sweet and apparently pleasant sleep. No abnormal condition appeared present otherwise. When the second week came on I thought she could be aroused more readily, and at the end of the third week she could be kept awake by talking with her for perhaps an hour at a time, in the afternoon only. From this time on she gradually slept lews, and soon gained strength, her appetite returned, and she was, in a short time, around the house as usual. During this time of sleep the pulse and temperature remained normal. Wheusb came out of her sleep she was impressed that she was iu a hospital, and could not reconcile her surroundings with what she was accustomed to while she had occupied the room in the house of her daughter in which she bod slept for a long time.-Medical Record. DISLIKES HOUSEWORK. YOUNG GIRL WHO PREFERS TO READ AND IMPROVE HERSELF. Uow the Car l>rlver Oot Kven. A New York Tribune writer stood on the front platform with a car driver a few evenings ago. He lashed himself Into a rage over the many and sudden rings by the conductor for stops. At last he said, "Say, mister, if you will hang on to the rail I'll get square with that man." Then he cut his horses fiercely until they began to gallop. He watched until the conductor was walking through the car to the rem platform. Just as the conductor reached tho door the driver said between his teeth, "Tiang on, now." He gave the brake h sudden jerk and the car stopped like au ar rested cannon bail. The. brake was a> quickly thrown back, whirling arounc with a sharp rattle jw the car bounded on again. The conductor had unceremoniously sal down right in the doorway, his back to tin passengers.

The following letter has been received at this office: t wish to state my case to jou. Two years ago I was graduated at a school for girle. Since that time I have lived at home with my parents. I like to read and study, bat my mother thinks I should keep myself busy for the greater part of th* day about housework and sewing. Now, I do not like housework And I do like to study, aud furthermore, it seems to me that I should be doing wrong to give so much timo to housework when I might lie Improving myself. Now will yon toll me candidly Just what you think about it, and oblige yours truly, Olive." Just what we think about what, Olive? You should be a little more definite in stating your needs iu a case ro desperate this appears to be. What do we thluk. about your having to do housework when you would prefer to study? We think your preference is not first to be consulted, The need for your doing It is the first queav tlon to be answered, and you should have given ub some indication of this. A GRAVE PRODLK1I, But let us begin at the beginning. The problem you state Is a grave one, and ono that Is every now and then coming up to be decided. With womon entering into the broad fields of the higher education aud sipping the sweets of a constantly widening culture, while the sphere speciaUy designated us "womanV still claims so much of their thought and attention, it is pertinent to ask and to discuss what shall be the attitude of the educated young woman of today toward the undignified and unpleasant details of housework. The pervading opinion in the minds of men-yes and of women, too-in regard to those things is that the instinct for household duties is innate In the truly womanly heart. This much Is true; The love of home and family Is Inborn In the heart of every woman. Household duties she tolerates liecause she lovea these others. But no woman feels a hidden longing for the companionship of pota and pans, or feels her whole soul go out iu yearning toward sauces and salads, or recognizes tho cooking range as next of kin. No woman loves these things. Nor should sh�. That she docs them is of grace and not of nature. This proposition may be laid down at the outset as broad enough to cover all the ground. A woman ought to do just as much of the housework In a house as actual necessity lays upon her In securing the comfort and welfare, of the home. To do less than this is unworthy; to do more, merely for the sake of work, is undignified. And here is whore you failed to be explicit, Olive. How necessary is it that this work should bo done by the women members of your family? If your father is able to supply tho means wherewith strong hands that have no other accomplishment may be secured to do this work for you, uud if you should then elect to be your own hewer of wood and drawer of water, you would be lacking in a proper senweof personal dignity aud of the fitness of things. You could, as you suggest, use your time to much better advantage. GIRLS, don't mount too high. But ou the other hand, don't mount too high s horse, Olive. Don't feel too keenly the value of your time and the duty of improving yourself. Just try to be a wise, healthy minded, sensible girl, and the self Improvement may be taken for granted.

But while be was cautiously making 1 inquiries at the bar the door opened, aud Mr. Jenkins entered as coolly as though nothing had happened. Bill thought it prudent to diKsetuhlt his surprise, and presently the two were closeted where they could exchange confidences without fear of interruption. "Well?" exclaimed Mr, Jenkins interrogatively, evidently disconcerted by the ominous blackness of his companion'** brow, "Well?" repeated Bill in u fiercely ironical tone. "Did you pull it off?" inquired Mr. Jenkins, whose pasty countenance was begin uiug to assume in Bill's indignant eyes the pallor ul detected guilt. "What do you think?" said our friend rudely.
