finding a place to lock it up where it would not be exposed to the views of any chance passersby who might stray into the Black I thought of my a present from which I always Kept out of harms way in my own bed Most as it afterward turned of taking the pock etbook to the tea I went up to my room first to take the teacaddy to the I only acted in this roundabout way from nheer thought and severely enough I was punished for as you will acknowledge yourself wheu you have read a page or two more of my I was just getting the unlucky tea caddy out of my when I heard footsteps in the and running out immediately saw two men walk into the I inquired what they wanted sharply and one of them answired immediately that they Win ted my He of as he and I recognized him as a going among his comrades by the name of Shifty He bore a very bad His companion was a whom he addressed by the name of I distrusted him worse than I did Shifty and man aged to get between his leering eyes and the aa I told the two that my father was gone and that I did not expect him back till the next Saying they would come next the two men Half an hour afterward I looked The wind had lulled with the but a mist was and a heavy rain was beginning to Never did the lonely prospect of the moor look so dreary as it looked to my eyes that eve Never did I regret any slight thing more sincerelythan I then regret ted the leaving of Kniftons pocket bouk in my I felt very lone some and very but I shook off the feeling as best I and late at night went to A loud bang at the door of the cottage awoke I start ed but did not la aminufe or less there came a sec ond louder than the I ran out into the Whos there Let us answered a which I recognized immediately as thfl voice of Shifty Wait a bitj and let me said a second that of Dicks You are alone in the rushed into the passage again with a heavy kitchen poker lifted in both I was in time to see the bald head of Jerry pushed into the passage through a great rent in one of the lower panels of the Get you or Ill brain yon on the spot cried threatening him with the Mr Jerry toik his head out again much faster than he had put The next thing that came through the rent was a long which they darted at me from to move me from the I struck at it with all my and the blow must have jarred the hand of Shifty Dick up to his very for I heard him give a roar of rage and Before he could catch at the fork with his othe I had drawn it By this time even Jerry lost his and swore more awfully than Dick Then there came another minute of I suspected they were gone to get and dreaded the giving way of the whole Euuning into the bedroom as this fear beset I laid hold of my chest of drugged it into the and threw it down against the On the top of that I heaped my fathers big three chairs andascuttleful of I dragged out the They heard me as they were coming up to the door with fresh Jerry Stop a bit I and then the two con sulted together in I listened eagerly and just catight these words Less trouble the other I heard their voices at tho other bide of tho The back door was much smaller than the but it had this advantage in the way of was made of two solid oak join ed and strengthened intide by heavy It had no bolts like the front but was fastened by a bar of running across it in a slanting and fitting at either end into the walL They could not break it I and this they toon dis for they left After trying several ways to effect an they seemed to give it and a long silence silence which tried my cour age even more severely than the tumult of their first attack on the what a sum of money I would have given only to know what they were both about in that interval of silence I was startled at last out of my sus pense in the most awful A shout fiom one of them reached my ears on a sudden down tho kitchen Let us or well burn the place down over your head Burn it Burn what There was nothing easily combustible but the thatch on tbe roof and that had been well soaked with the heavy rain which had now fallen incessantly for more bout to use am against the When that con icti6n overcome I lost courage at I felt that the door must come that no such barricade 1 had onstructed could support it for more than a few minutes against such shocks as it was now to lean do no more to keep the house against I said to with my knees knock ing and the tears beginning to wet my I must trust to the night and the thick and save my life by running for it while You may crack your sweet voice than six Burn the place over my head How While I was still casting about wild ly in my mind to discover what possi ble danger there could be of one of the heavy stones placed on the thatch to keep it from being torn up by high came thundering downthechim It scattered the live embers on the hearth all over the A richly furnished with knickknacks and fine muslin about would have been set on fire Even our bare floor end rough furniture gave out a of burning at the first shower of embers which the first stone I had wit enough to let the smolder ing go ou for a moment or and to pour the whole of my cantul of water over the fire before the third stone came down the The live embers on the floor I easily disposed of after The man on the roof must have heard tho hissing of the fire as I put it and have felt the change produced in the atmosphere at the mouth of the for after the third stone had descended no more followed As for either of the ruffians themselves dropping down by the same road along which the stones had that was not to be The chim as I well knew by our experience in cleaning was too narrow to give passage to any one above the size of a small Hooked upward as that comforting reflection crossed my looked and as plainly as I sea the paper I am now writing the point of a knife coming through the inside of the roof just my Our there is yet I huddled on my cloak and and had my hand on the bar of the back door when a piteous mew from the bed room reminded me of the existence of poor I ran and huddled the creature up in my apron Before I was out in the passage the first shock from the beam fell ou the The upper hinge gave The chairs and tho coalscuttle forming the top of my barricade were rat tling on to thefloor but the lower hinge of the door and the chest of drawers and tool chest still kept their One more I heard the villains cry more run with the and down it all comes Just as they must have been starting for that one more I opened the back door and fled out in the with the book full of banknotes in my the silver spoons in my and the cat in my I threaded my way easily enough through the familiar obstacles in the back and was out in the pitch darkness of the moor be fore I heard the second which told me that the whole door had given In a few minutes they must have dis covered the fact of my flight with the for 1 heard shouts in the as if they were running out to jursue I ran on at the top of my and the noise soon dieil it was so dark that twenty thieves in stead of two would have found it use ess to follow How long it was before I reached the arm nearest place to which i could fly for can not tell I remember that I had just sense nough to keep the wind at my back having observed in the beginning of he evening that it blew toward Moor and to go on resolutely through he In all other respects I was by this ime halfcrazed by what I had gone If it had so happened that the wind had after I observed its direction early in the I should have gone and have probably perished of fatigue and ex posure on tho Providentially it own thats a bessed Thus conjured the ump o heir opened its mouth sufficiently for the author of its being to thrust in his and that gentleman having convinced himself by the most indubitable evidence that a tooth was immediately kicked his hat across the buried his fist iu the and declared with much feeling and vehemence that he could lick the individual who would dare to intiniitte that he was nol the happiest manon the face oi the Then he gave a hearty smack on the and snatched up the while the lady rushed tremblingly forth after who lived next In a moment Simmons came tear as if she had been shot out of a and right behind her came at a speed that indicated she had been ejected from two Simmons at once snatched the heir from the arms of hurried to the where she made a careful and critical examination of its while held its and tried to still the throbbings of her and danced up and down and snapped his fingers to show how calm he It having been ascer tained by Simmons that the tooth was a sound and also that the strongest hopes for its future could be entertained on account of its coming in the new of the Harbison got out the necessary and Harbison at once proceeded to write seven different letters to as many per unfolding to them the event of the and invitfng them tocome on as soon as still blew steadily as it had blown for cottage had no upper and out rooms had no Slowly and wickedly the knife wriggled its way through the dry inside thatch between the rafterer It stopped for a and there came a sound of in its stopped too there was a great fall of dry thatch ou the and I saw the hairy hand of Shifty armed with the come through after the fallen He tapped at the rafters with the of the as if to test hours and I reached the farm house with my clothes wet and my brain in a high When I made my alarm at the they had all gone to bed but the farmers eldest who was sitting up late over his pipe and I just mustered strength enough to gasp out a few telling him what was the and then fell down at his for the first time in my iu a dead That swoon was followed by a severe When I got strong enough to look about me I found myself in one of the farmhouse Knifton and the were all in the cat was asleep at my and the pocketbook that I had saved lay on the table by my There was plenty of news for me to as soon as I was fit to listen to The thieves had been and were in awiting their trial at the next and Knifton had been so shocked at the danger I had which they blamed their own want of thonghtfnlness in leaving the pocketbook in my care as they that they insisted on my fathers re moving from our lonely home to a cot iage on their which we were to inhabit The banknotes that had saved were given to me to buy urniture in place of the things that the thieves had These pleasant tidings assisted so greatly iu promoting my recovery that I was soon ible to relate to my friends at the farm house the particulars that I have writ ten They were all surprised and interested bnt no as I listened to me with such breathless at tention as the farmers eldest Knifton noticed and began to make jokes about in her lighthearted as soon as we were I thought little of her jesting at the time but when I got and we went to live at our new the1 young as he was called in our constantly came to see and constantly managed to meet me out of I had my share of like other young and I began to think of Kniftons jokes with some To be the young far mer managed one never could tell lose his way with me in returning from and before we found out the right road home again he had asked me to be his His relations were quite as much as tonished and angered at the step he had taken as you yourself would have young in their They did all they could to keep us and break off the But the farmer was too obstinate for And he did many Whether I proved myself worthy or not of his good opinion is a question which I leave you Expert There being no keel to the Esqui
