Orrville and been asleep for almost twelve years when an event occurred which together with the attendant incidents completely aroused the whole town. Orrville was situated on Lake Wuno us one of the most charming Little sheets of water in our Inland Stutes. In a secluded Valley shut out As it were from nil the rest of the world by the surrounding Hills with a solitary Majestic Mountain keeping silent Vigil Over the slumbering scene Lay the in Nuh Ful Lake and on its margin the miniature town. The spot was All that a pout might fancy or a romantic Lover Sigli for and when there was advertised a a a new summer resort the Orrville House at Orrville a with every accommodation ac., ao., it is not surprising that Many persons who had been struck by the surpassing Beauty of the place of they caught a flying glance of it in the lii plug train should respond immediately to the Opportunity and engage to spend the summer or autumn months at so charming a resort. Among the earlier guests at tho Orr Ville House were Charles Lacy a tal tiled Young barrister of limited Means colonel Harris and a or. Van Haven a handsome Young merchant of new York. Charles l. and Mattie Harris had Ilieen playmates lit their childhood but the former bad removed from his native place in ills fifteenth year and Hail never met the sweetheart of his Boyish Days until time had transformed him into the fill stature of a were now so completely changed that they met at Orrville As entire strangers and were Only recognized to one another by the mention of Miler names and places of residence. The acquaintance thus renewed ripened into ardent love and Cit Arles Lacy considered flu self the Luckiest fellow on Earth. A a did you heat the news Mattie Quot asked Lacy one morning As ills betrothed seated Hersill at the breakfast table by ills Side. A no what laity a Johnson a co., Bankers in this town have been robbed of Over one Hundred thousand dollars a a you Don t say so when did it of curve a a Home time during the earlier part of the morning. The thief whoever to is made n pretty full haul of it left the firm with a very Small sum for it own pocket Book. It was a private banking House and involves Many of the leading persons of the a a and they Haven t secured the guilty parties a a Quot no and tire nut Likely to do so either. Men who take such goodly sums As this generally secure u Safe Avenue of c8enm?.

How could they Ever suspect him v yet tho Are very mysterious and it Hasty investigation Point to him. It is evident to me though that lie Only left Orrville temporarily that lie was called away. Hon Mac that he should have destroyed the letter anti that it turns out that there is no such Turson As Greenup in Dalton it is not it All strange that he should have Liscome excited when n couple of men Laid heir hands on him As he was getting out of the train and told him to was a thief and was wanted immediately it Orrville. Who would t get excited under such circumstances ? what nonsense they allege they say he might have written the note himself and passed it through the Tost slut i know that he Lias not the least link of connection with the Ali stir and the authorities had no right to commit him to prison when he can obtain Lull from half a dozen Dot tar enl persons.

Not lets lie quiet for fear we should lie Quot All they moved slowly and Nul ulessly across tho rippling Waters of the Luke until they reached the opposite Shore. The Woods Hung darkly Over the tranquil Depths and All wits quiet. Van Huven tied the tout and stepped ashore followed silently by Mattie. He led the Way Toa dense Thicket of nude Thrush pausing a moment to assure himself that they were alone. Having satisfied himself of this polut he took u few Steps Forward and cautiously raised n Large Stone. Under it Lay a casket. Lie picked it up and replaced the Stone. Quot i la carry Ltd suld Mattie with Avld ious eagerness feeling confident that if she once got Possession of the stolen Money All would be Wall with her.
