That the whole neighbourhood was alarmed the police Shook their Heads and looked knowingly but did nothing and what was much to be lamented found no clue to the robbers who it the same time they assert a were evidently not regular cracks men. A flairs had reached such a stage that we used to sleep with a revolver close by our bedside when we happened to have a Friend who came to a few Days with us. This Friend was an old Jungle Hunter and was Augait it every article whereby the animal creation Wight he was delighted it the idea of having an nature with lurglir.0, and scorned the idea hat they were More Tymn a match in Cun Ling for even the average Bush t was in vain hat we assured him that it Vns an axiom that an accomplished robber Ould effect an Entrance into any House Jit that instruments were Yueh of n azure As to Cut hours in doors without disc and in fact that through roofs and by lights Down chimneys and up water pouts in accomplished burglar could easily liter the bust de fended House in the i o Dom. 17b0.74 by the commissions w.

I argument a burglar was a Man on watch a who took advantage of the residents being asleep and usus but he let my suspicions ire raised and i will defy any burglar to enter my House without my having due warning been us no though i my be asleep still i cad hear his ppr once and can then make my arrangements to Welcome him although we were not desirous of hav o ing our House robbed yet wet wished much that our Friend s Confidence should he taken out of him. A few Days after the conver Silion the police informed us that several suspicious characters 1 and been seen about and recommended us to be on the Alert. Here then was a Good Opportunity to test my Friend s skill and wakefulness so having informed him of the a policeman s warning i asked him if he frit competent to undertake the de Fence of the House. Said he Only demand a dark lantern to and stipulate that you have a a pair of galoshes beside your bed. I also must go to bed last and do servant is to go Down stairs before me in Tuffe morning nor is any one to walk about during the whole thing. Come in the dark slip on dressing gown and come at once i was soon provided Asho wished and ready to descend the stairs in the dark. Now said my Friend there Are seven Steps to the first Landing and twelve afterwards the fourth step creaks abominably to be careful w descend with out noise the night waa boisterous Many a door end window milled so that the slight noise we made in descending the stairs was no sufficient to have alarmed even the most keen eared listener. We descended to the ground floor entered the pantry and stand ing perfectly still devoted ourselves to listening. In a very few seconds we heard n Grot ing noise on the shatter then an interval o quiet and again a noise presently the win Dow was gently raised and again All was quiet. The noise of a heavy vehicle pass ing the House seemed to afford in oppor Unity for a More decided Effort for a while the rattle of the wheels wan a creak sounded from the shatter and we could hear that the Bolt was forced for the shutter was gently moved. Stir till i do and hold your breath if possible i found the latter a difficult request to comply with for my heart was beating with rapidity and thumping against my ribs in the most excited Way still i stood quiet and trusted to my Friend. Nothing could be More cautious than the movements of the robbers. The shutter was pushed Back in the most slow and steady manner and there been even a Bel it i doubt whether it would made to ring. At intervals fastened to have been there was a rest from wort evidently for the purpose of listening and then one of the robbers placed Bis leg across the win Dow Sill and lightly dec ended into the the night even out of doors was very dark and in the Corner where we stood it was Black As Erebus. Our forms fore were quite and the Only Chance of discovering us was by touch ing or As. The first burglar was soon followed by second whilst we Couk hear that a third who win outside was to. Remain there on watch. Now let s Light says number iwo. Not yet till you push the shutter re plied the other or the Glim la be seep then you come and hold thru bos shutter was a Nickly pushed to and the robbers moved Awny a few paces from the window by which they had entered by the quiet Way in which they walked it was evident that they were either without shoes or had India rubber coverings. Of their disc or weapons we could see and i began to doubt whether our position was in agreeable one As x was armed Only with a sword it weapon however w hich i knew How to use whilst of my Means of offence or defence i knew Noth Down from London some Days previously examined the details by which the men had effected an Entrance Yon were very Lucky to hear themes specially on such said the detective.1 when once they re in they move like mice. We know them and i expect they will get seven the Man waa nearly Correct for one the older offender was sentenced to six and the other to five years of penal servitude it will i suppose be of no use trying to sleep again to night for it a three said my Friend. I cannot waa my and i m dying to hear How you band out those men were approaching the Boose. Being then of one mind we partly Robed ourselves lighted a fire in the Kitchen and soon being provided with cigars and grog got very comfortable and satisfied with our work. My Friend then began his account which he gave much in the Fol zoning words the burglar As i told you has usually the advantage of Surprise. He Cao select the time at which to make the attack and if Bis proceedings Are carried on cautiously he enters a Bongo before he is heard. Fen men would however venture to do so unless Ebey previously bad Good information As to the Interior arrangements of the abase this they obtain cibber from ser vants tradesmen or some one who visits the locality or they come themselves As tramps or with some trifle to sell. Thus f there Are Bells attached to the doors and windows he finds it out and he knows tolerably Well the Interior arrangements of the locality they propose trying their skill upon. There Are too conventional melb Tia Case but tie Means Bod town selves to be soffit ent f people Are usually very Colin cd our when they hear or they noises in the the first tiling they usually do b to by a Candle which proclaims to the robber that he has been heard Aud must then Tobej go a Ourthe Boose with this Candle and make a great noise so that the Man May have plenty of time to get away or Hidemi Mafir. Instead of this if the person were to listen intently he would be Able to Bear any suspicions noises distinctly and decide upon their cause then a he most1 know Bia own Bouse better than a he a the lest off of the two in the dark i and when having armed l itself he had quietly opened the door he May wait and listen until the robbers Are heard moving about when he May take such Steps of seem necessary. If every person were merely to plan what waa to be done in Case of robbers entering his House and then were to carry out this if the occasion required it burglary would be too dangerous and Hunsuc Essal a proceeding to be popular or profitable and thus might be Given of for a More honest Means of obtaining a livelihood so that really we May consider ourselves to have done the Community at arge a Benefit when we capture one of these Gentry whilst those who allow their Bouses to be robbed with impunity jeopardise their neighbor s who a mystery in shrouding the conspirator Payne instead of being cleared of growing deeper every Day. His bearing and fortitude Bro Ogontz the trial is something wonderful chains Handcuffs and the awful presence of certain death the constant gaze of the eager and curious crowd nil All the rounding of the commission neither Appal nor terrify him in the least for his companions in misery he deeply and Only wishes because he is stronger Rad braver than they that he could be executed each one. To Day a Christian lady of this City sent him a pocket handkerchief and a message that she should Pray for him and thai others prayed for him. He received the present with the air and ods of protecting a Chouse such As bolts j ing seemingly of a gentleman retaining mrs chains locks ic., nil of which require his thanks and As for the prayers he said no Merew time and proper instruments to Over one praying for him should labor alone ome. It therefore occurred to me that that he prayed for himself. This Hist re Novelty and simplicity combined would be Mark waa made with much emotion he More than a match for the coarse intellect i eyes filling with tears.
