and Hlliles He lud sailors' songs , mil
tracts in the same pile. He bough I
shelis, monkeys, parrots, COTAll and
other CUrioMtWt, He would leffd the
sum ol live shrllings to any sailor who
asked for it, and that without senility.
He would not bttjf of a landsman, hut
would sell to him in a grudging way.
He had never hcen to sen, hut RMS)
the rig of eviry sort of vessel, and Ik
kept a log wherein he recorded ever)
i hange ol weather and the particulars
of every marine disaster.
One certain afternoon in midwinter
in the year 1.S67 I railed in at Lossing's
to make an exchange of watches. I
found him husy with three or four cus
tomers and went away. That evening
at ahout X o'clock I left the ship and
made another call on him. I f und
him sitting by the stove in the dim
light of his single dip, and after he had
examined my watt h he went to an old
iron safe and brought out half a dozen
from his own stork for my inspection.
We had them on the counter before us
when the door opened and three nu n
entered. They were dressed as sailors
and at once inquired f ir articles o(
sailors' use, but I felt certain from the
start that they were not mariners, A
second glance told me thai tiny were
the same men I had seen 111 the plat e
in the afternoon. It was probably the
storm and the lonliness of the situation
whii h made me jump to the roni lusion
that they hatl come to rob the old
man. lie could have entertained no
such suspicion, for he rereivetl them
cordially and calmly set about getting
out the articles they h id asked for.
W hile continuing to inspect the watches
I kept an eye on the movements
of the trio. I thought I observed signs
of chagrin that they had found me in
the place, and three or four timts
within five minutes I detected signals
passing between them. 1 made up
my mind that it would be a good move
for me to go tpiietly out and find a
policeman and tell him of my sus
picions. Therefore, after a bit, I saitl
to the old man :
"I think one of these will suit me,
but will not make a choice to night.
You can keep my watch till I come in
"All right," he replied, as he looked
up, and I left the watches on tin
counter and started for the door, whist
ling in a careless way as I went.
I had been sitting about the center
of the store, at least forty feet from the
front door. Two of the men stood at
the counter, only fifteen feet away,
while the third was looking at some
oilskins hanging up near the door.
Owing to the poor light I couid hardly
make him out. I h .d passed the two
men, when the third one turned the
key in the door, and at the same mo
ment one of the others drew a pistol
and commanded me to return to the
chair I had j.is: vacated. His com
nanion menaced old Lnssins t the
same time, while the third man came
down to us and tpiietly said :
"There is no use kicking up bob
over this. If everything goes quiet
nobody'll be hurt, but if you are nasty
about it we'll serve you out in no time.
Young feller, you sit down, and, Bill,
you keep an eye on him. Old chap,
you sit down over here, and, Jem, you
keep him quiet. I'll go through tin
old rookery and gather up what's worth
I was not a bit surprised at the move
ment for reasons already given you, but
"No. 40" was c imnletelv dumiounded
for a time. You would have thought
thai a weak old man doing business in
such a rough locality would have been
somewhat iiiep.ired lor surprises, but
his demeanor proved that he had never
entertained the idea that he would I
robbed. He turned verv pale as In-
sat and stared about him and was evi
dently in great fear of bodily harm.
As I had little or nothing to lose my
anxieties were not so gre.it, and yet
when I looked into the evil faces of
the robbers I found my-ell trembling
a bit as to what would be the outcome
of the affair. They wire not going It
walk out of the store after the robbery
and leave us free to follow and raise
hue anil crv. The thud man must
have been quite familiar with tb
premises. The blinds being up, h
lighted half a dozen candles and placed
them around, and then tie Organ over
hauling shelves and drawers anil com
partuients. From the old safe he
brought a dozen chronometers, a score
of watt lies and a lot ot cliarnts, rings
mulili and loos- watch chains. With
them he had about 10 in cash
mostly silver. In the course ol hall in
hour he had collected enough plunder
to make a nood load tor a man to
cam. and it was dumped into a st
sack brought along for the purpose
Uu wtiit h and chain and pin Were

I think it was fully ten minute, all.
