Come As toon as the sound of their foot- steps died away, Virginia snatched the deadly handkerchief off her head, and staggered to her feet, though dizzily. She was a very spirited girl, and deter- mined that the pair should not escape But what could she do It was vain to think of getting tho cook to alarm their neighbors at the corner, the next lot was vacant, and she must cross the hall and pass the stairs to find lier There would be no use in throwing up the window and screaming; the house was on Clinton avenue, quite far out, and the policeman on that beat did not come past very often. Virginia wrung her hands, when a sleepy murmur of Auntie startled her. IB a second her resolve was taken and she was on her fences by Fred, kiss- ing him. and whispering in his ear Fred, my darling, auntie is going to do soBicthing, funny. You remem- ber how pa jumped you down from tho balcony on Christmas day to run after tho monkey I am going to jump down now. Don't speak a word, now Act like a man. There, now Fred was just four old, but a great boy for his age, and he always obeyed Virginia implicitly; so he rubs his eyes wide open, and was carried to the window. The balcony, outside.was not far from the ground. Virginia looked out carefully, she saw, under the gaslight at the corner, a tall figure with the gleam of brass buttons. she whispered rnpidly, "run to that policeman, and tell him to come right here to auntie; then go to Mr. Motley's at the corner, and ring the bell all your is you can reach tell George and Harry Motley that Aunt Virginia says there n thief in the house. Don't be afraid, Fred be a man like papa Over, gently, over tho low railing; and then, with a good shake of his per- son. Fred's fat little Icps trotted swift' ly off toward the policcrnin. Directly, under tbe balcony, a voice said, softly What is waited ma'am Can you Open the front door for me 1" tall, handsome young man, a stranger, in undress navy uniform. Fred, now that his part of the fun was over, be- gan to roar, and Virginia took him up in her arms, while the three srcntlc- men, assisted by roa!

The consequence was, that when I pushed the door open in n very bewildered frame of mind, and saw Langley smiling at mo. 1 was terrified j almost out of my and came near thing seemed to the common ear to be fainting. pcif'oet, during one of their grand To the best of my recollection, the household sat up nearly all night. had unders.aud, nnd sympathize with his pnpfls; and let him before bis pupils fie'-h from ihe studv of the sub- ject, and it will he almost impossible to have a dull reei'ation The attention and curiosity uiubt fisst be aroused, and must not be allowed to flair. hen the wind was opportune a kite was flown across the Niagara to the slender coid a larger was attached and drawn over To this a rope was fas- tened, and to it a cable, and these drawn across until a foundation was se- cured upon which rests the miracle of architecture, the bridge across the Ni- agara Tho fragile kite-string was an insignificant beginning for such n struc- ture.

Langley's story is too long to be told hero. Suffice it to say that, being on deck.whcn the Tecumsoh sunk, he hud been able to strike out from the sinking ship, and under cover of thcsuiokc and roar of battl'1, to swim ashore There, however, he was taken prisoner and kept in close confinement for sonic months, finally making his escape. Coming diruct to Frank for intoHi'irence before presenting himself to his family, he had stopped (o light his cigar under tho gas-iiglu, where Virginia had mis- taken lntn fur a policeman. He haj known her instai.lly, and probably only hor fright agit'ition prevented her from recognizing his voice, which, as bo mischievously told her, he diJ nut disguise in the least. Alice and her accomplice were iden- tified by the police as old offendors. The wo.jiati carried a systematic pilfering at the Temples', and wits an accomplished hypocrite. To my intense gratification, tho pair were sentenced to a term at Sing Sing. Lnngley and Arirginia were married very soon after.
