And the old Man flared upon for Mand a if to a Enre him Elf of fraud. Then Mand and judge exchanged a a tin a Thev thought of the Paat and what might Lun Vuey we St Hestet Tower. Some years ago i had occasion to make a Short trip from London to visit my old College Friend Maitland who had settled Down As a Clergyman in connection with the Cathedral of Westchester. It was a pleasant excursion chiefly by railway and i was hospitably entertained. After dinner my Friend and i walked out in the dusk of the evening to look at the antiquities of the place. In the course of our ramble the Moon Rose and threw a Charm Over the scene. With the Moonlight streaming through the coloured windows we sauntered through the ancient Cathedral enjoying the solemnity of the Edi face. A a t. As we approached the Gates of the choir Maitland though accustomed to the place became singularly silent. All at once he a ailed on me to notice that we were standing under the main Central Tower and that in the vaulted dome overhead was a round Black spot a a you see that dark spot a said he a a it is a covered Hole opening up into the Tower. It is sometimes used for the hauling up of Lead and Timber for repairs on the roof. I Call your attention to it now. Because i am going to Tell you something about it by and _ seated once More at the fireside of my Bachelor Friend i listened to what he had to say about the Hole in the Tower. I will try to repeat his Story As he told it to me i suppose it must be about five years ago Toon alter i came to the Cathedral tii at i was engaged one evening in this room writing when i had occasion to re Fer to a Book not in my Possession but which i knew to be accessible to me in the Cathedral Library. To procure the work i sallied out with a lantern and i had not gone very far when 1 was assailed by a cheery shout from 8yme��?geoffrey 8vines�?an Oxford Man who had been of Junior at Oriel. 8ymea waa a Little eccentric. He had taken a Fairish degree and might have done Well but being passionately fond of music he took to studying the Organ and this and brought him to Westchester As a Profe Rod Putti of the organist. A such he Wmk a red to have constant Access to the instr Meutz one of wonder Ful Comparon in the Cathedral 1m, and a i waa taking up my Book and lantern previous to our departure he suddenly cried a Hollo that Tower Hole to open. Just fancy looking Down through there into the a a 4 Yea a a Aid i r i daresay it would be very pretty in the meanwhile i am going Home a a fall right a said Symes. A lend me your lantern and ill bid you Good night. �?o4 Why what Are you going to do i a a a going up into the Tower a he replied a a in vain i tried to dissuade him. Using every argument to represent to him the Folly the uselessness the danger of such a proceeding. Good Humoured to but obstinately he threw aside my remonstrances and when at last i found him resolved 1 made up my mind reluctantly and not in the Best of humor to accompany him on his Fooie a errand. Thank god that did t leave him alone a 1 had intended. A a 1 wis Little disposed however to re spend to his Lively tallies As i followed him into the staircase which led to the Tower. The lantern was of Little use to us As we climbed Tho worn step. A cold Atrip of Moonlight came through an open Silt m the Wall now and then but otherwise we were in the dark. After some few minutes accent to Reta to a doorway that led Over the top of the transept Arch under the leads of the roof. Begging Symes to look about him and to tread carefully i passed after him through the darkness into the main Tower. From where we stood the upper Side of the dome like ceiling of the Center of the Nave Between the two transepts Rose like an inverted cup before us and at the Apex of tire dome through the opening which had suggested this wayward undertaking the Moonlight streamed dimly up into the darkness of the Tower. To carry out Bis purpose Symes now proceeded to crawl up the dome in order to look Down through the orifice. I knew it a of no Avail to say anything to i stood and watched him with anxiety As he leaned Over the verge of the chasm. A As i gazed i became aware that immediately above the opening a Stout rope was swinging to which was attached a Large Hook. 1 remembered that we repairs had been going on a for a few Days on the roof of the Cathedral and that i had been one or two Rolls of Lead wound up through the Hole on the previous Day. To toes thoughts were passing through my mid when sym a catching hold of the rope jerked it to ascertain that it a fastened above and leaned Forward with his weight upon it As he looked downwards with exclamations of Delight. A come up sir and see do a he cried. A its Worth ail the trouble of a a a i was just about to creep up that i might share his gratification when a sudden whirring grating sound of wheels above a gasping exclamation a scuffling snatch with his feet at the Elfee of the Hole and before i could move i saw the poor fellow disappear rapidly through the opening a the rope uncoiled itself with increasing velocity from the Winch overhead. It flashed across me in a moment. The handle of the Winch had been imperfectly secured the Jerk and the subsequent weight had overcome the resistance and trusting wholly be the rope he had slipped from his footing. The Hope occurred to me that the evident resistance which still restrained the free revolutions of the Winch might prevent the descent being so rapid As to endanger life or limb so thai he would possibly and in a tet with Only a severe fright and shaking. These thoughts crowded Pell Mell upon my mind at the first Shock of Surprise. But conceive my horror when with a loud Jar the noise of the wheels cease and the ropes no longer descended. A a How i started he has let go thought i and listened breathlessly in sickening expectation of the crash which i conceived must follow. But All was still and mechanically i crawled up to the Edge of the Hole and leaned Over thinking to see his crushed body in Ftp ghastly Heap below me. A no about five and Twenty feet Down vibrating in sheer space w As suspended my poor Friend at a height of St least fifty of Jet above the Stone 3sto. 39. Nothing else does. I do not know in Cether you have Over experienced the wave of re if that succeeds the unexpected deliverance from extreme peril but i arouse you that the conviction that poor 8ymcs was not dead brought me upon my Knees in thankfulness for the mercy thaw had protected us in such on a Ftp Cristo. A a i was overcome with Jeannero and weakness holding the hand scions Friend and i almost think that was dozing when i heard the Joundi of an opening door and Friendly voice. I cried aloud and we were at once surrounded with Highta and eager frightened inquiring faces besieging me with que Row which for the time 1 was Alto Lefoer unable to answer. Sym a still i Staible was carried to his lodging on the a tier Side of the Green whither 1 followed him and waited for More to an half an hour until the doctor came and told me that be was partly conscious but must not on any account let a disturbed or excited by seeing anybody. He said he would remain with him through the night and i returned with anxious thoughts and on exhausted Frame but with a grateful heart to my own Home.

He waa dreadfully used up for some Days and then apparently recovered his general health except that he had lost All his buoyant spirits looked like an old Man and always seemed to avoid me.
