to reply whtn the policeman on tin
udden .mil unaxpecttd inierntlori,
and whili w all wiu looking toward
the dooi "No t ihouted "Thieve I
rhievti ll lp : Help " at the top ol
his voice With tl-i gale hauling out
side he cuiilil not be laaul tliimigli the
iloor, and undei any circumiuncei it
was the wont thing he i ouhl have
done. l'he man who wan guarding
him made a halt wheel and stun k htm
OH the lute head with his heaw pittol,
and the poor old man fell in a lii.ip
on the il or.
Three, pistols wcte piiesctiled at ue
in one moment, and they were not
lowered until the policeman had given
tne door another shake and passed on.
"The hloomin old idiot brought It
upon himself,'1 muttered the leadei as
he looked down at the still and sense
less figure. "dive this young cha
the same sort if he makei any trouble,
and I'll look around lor a bit."
l'he old man appeared to have been
instantly killed l the blow, hut there
were no expressions of regret. I he
leader searched around for perhaps
half an hour, but found no money.
W hen he returned to us he stooped
down and put his hand on the old man
and carelessly remarked that the blow
must have been a heavy one. I hey
were ready lO leave, and now rami the
question of what they should do with
me. The one called Jem was for mur
dering me off hand, bat the others
were not so bloodthirsty, They asked
mv name, the name of mv ship and
many other questions, and then retire
to the front of the store to counsel t.
nether. 1 could catch a word of th
conversation now and then, and 1 made
out that I em w as still tot killing me.
while Bill wanted to no further and
burn down the place. Tne leadei
refused to entertain either proposition
He wanted to arrange things so that
the double crime would be laid upon
me, at least temporarily, but this was ;
liittii ult thirm to do. As a sort of com
promise I was bound hand and foot
and then made fast to a ring in th
floor. The fellows handled me pretty
roughlv, though I made not the 5 Ight
est resistance, and th villain Bill
teemed to be aching for an excuse!
finish me off 1 hey made me take my
solemn oath that 1 would not appear
against them It they were ever arrestee
and that I w uld tell the police that onl
one man was eniHUted in the Work
They told me what sort of a man 1
must describe, and warned me thai my
life would be taken il 1 betrayed them.
When the villains got ready to leave
they blew out the lights, and as they
closed the door behind them they
locked it. They had been gone about
five minutes when I heard the bells
striking 11. I had a fear that they
might return and finish me ami there
fore remained quitl for an hour. Then
I heard the old man sighing and groan
ing and moving about and railed to
him. After a while i ontciousness re
turned to him, but only for a short
time. He remembered the robbers
and being struck down, and when I
told him how 1 was secured be made
an effort to crawl ovet to me. It was
too much for him and he fainted away
and about hall an hour latei I heard
him gasping and knew that death was
at hand. If the robbers had beeii
sailors they could not have tied me
more sei uiely 1 worked at the ropes
for an hour before I gave up, but ll
was no use. The lire was dead out by
midnight, and from thence on the old
store was like an icehouse. The upper
floors were occupied by families, but I
was not aware of this fact until about (
o'clock, when I heard people stirring.
I then began shouting for help, but
owing to the storm no one heard me.
By and by 1 could hear vehicles and
pedestrians on the street, but no one
tried the door. 1 figured it out that
some of the people Up stairs would by
and by take notice lhal the blinds were
still up and the d-.oi locked, and that
the police would be called to invetti
gale, but it was 5 01 lock in the after,
noon before this happened, and 1 was
then half dead with the cold I heard
someone shaking the door, but was loo
hoarse to give the tlrm. J heard foot
steps and voices, and fifteen minutes
later the door was unloikcd, audio
walked a police official and a d ten
citizens. A woman who had observed
that the blinds were tip and who feared
that the old man was ill or dead, had
given the alarm.
1 was o thoroughb done up that
(he sent me to a hospital, and 11 was
a full week before 1 g"t out of bed.
My ears, nose, lingers and Iocs had
been nipped by (be frost, and ii teemed
as if I could never get thoroughly

describe the robbers to the police, they
