WEDNESDAY EVENING, JAN, 14, 1880.
Hurglarieusly aud Feloniously.
AVe had just locked up the safe and I
had put the key in my pocket I am the
accountant of the North and Seuth of Eng
land bank, at its Pad&ey branch, "V. It.
Yorks. I had get my hat en and had
taken up my umbrella, when a man came
running into the bank with a bag of money
in his hand.
' Am I iu time ?' he cried. I shook my
"Deuce take it," he said ; "I am oil te
Liverpool by the next train and then te
"Serry for it," I said ; "but we can't
take the money."
'Well, then, what is te be done ? Heie's
i 52,000 in this bag, and tiiese drafts of
mine come due m a couple of days. AY ell,
you'll have te take 'em up," he said ; " I
can't unless you take the money in to
night." I knew iliac these Uraits were coming
due, and that our manager was a little
anxious about them, for they were rather
heavy, and the ether names en them were
net very geed. Black, tee that was the
man with the money bag Black was a
capital customer ; and net only a geed cus
tomer himself, but he brought geed ac
counts with him, and we were a young
branch and en our mettle.
"Well, here was the money te meet the
drafts, anyhow, and I should have been a
great feel te send it away because it was
alter Hours, ae 1 counted it all ever ;
there was about 10,000 in checks smd
notes and 3,000 in geld.
" Come and have a glass of beer witli
me," said Black, " en the way te the sta
tion." I put the bag of indhcy in my desk and
locked it up. I would have come back
presently and placed it in the safe. I
walked te the station with Black ; we had
some beer together, and then he went elF
Americawards, and I en my way te Nemo Neme
phillar Villas. Yeu see I was rather in the
habit of calling for a glass of beer as I
went home, and then going en, and con
sequently, from the force of habit, I'd al
most get home before I remembered the
bag of money. It was vexing, tee, be
cause we had a tea party that niijht, the
lirst sinee our marriage, and it began at 0
o'clock, and I'd premised te be home an
hour earlier te draw the ceiks and help te
get things ready. And here it was 6 o'clock
and I had te go all the way back te the
All the way back I went as hard as I
could pelt. However, the money was all
right in my desk, and new I'd put it in
the safe. "Tell Mr. Cousins" our man
ager, you knew I said te the servant who
let me in, " that I want the key of the
safe." But you had it in your pocket, you
say, which shows that you are net ac
quainted with the rules and regulations of
the North and Seuth of England bank,
which say that the accountant or chief
cashier shall be responsible for the due
custody of the cash while it is in his pos
session in the daytime, and that at night
all moneys and securities shall be carefully
secured within the office safe, which shall
be secured by two keys, one of which shall
be in the custody of the manager, and the
second in that of the accountant or cashier.
But, you say again, as long as you had one
key, what did you want with two'.' There,
I own, the regulations arc obscure. They
weie drawn up by somebody without any
literary skill ; if they'd consulted me about
"em, I could have suggested a geed many
improvements. What they meant te say
was that the safe was te be secured by two
locks, and that a key of each, net inter
changeable, the one with the ether, was
te be in the custody, etc. New you under
stand why I wanted Mr. Cousins's key.
" Eh, my ! " said the servant, opening
her mouth wide, " and what might you
want Mr. Cousins's key for? "
Just as stupid as you, you sec. I was
mad with the girl. I always get out of
tempei with these Yorkshire people. If
you ask 'em the simplest question, first
they open their mouths and gape at you,
When you've repeated the question twice
they shut their mouths and think a bit.
Then the idea seems te reach the thing
that docs duty with 'cm for brains, and
excites a sort of reilex action, for, by jin
go ! instead of answering your question,
they go and ask you one. And that makes
me se mad. Oh, they're a very dense race
these Yorkshire people.
"Why. te open the safe, you stupid,"
said I. Where is he ("'
"Don't you knew?" says she.
"Knew!" I cried in a rage; "what
should I ask you for if I did knew?"
"Didn't thou knew he were at that
Ah, se he was. I'd nearly forgotten that
he was one of the guests at my wife's par
ty. Clearly, I couldn't get the safe open
and I did't like te leave the money in my
desk, se I put it in my peekct and took it
home, thinking I'd give it te Cousins with
my key, te put it in the safe when he re
turned." A nice mess I get into when I icached
home ; for you see it had been arranged
that I was te go up stairs and dress before
any one came ; and then our room was te
be made ready for the ladies te take their
bonnets oil" for they were net all carriage
people. Well, you never saw such a
thing ! When I get home and crept up
stairs te dress the people had all come,
se the servant said there were six muffs
and four bonnets and five perk-pie hats
and half a dozen shawls en the bed, and
one lady had left her every-day curls hang
ing ever the looking-glass ! Upen my
word I didn't like te perform toilet among
all these feminine gear ; and there was no
lock te the deer; and my dress-clothes
were all smothered up among these mulls
and things. But 1 get through pretty
well, and had just get one of my legs into
my trousers, when bang atrop-drep-drop !
such a rattle at the knocker, and heard
my wife scuttling away into the hall.
They were the Markbys, our trump card,
who kept their own carriage, and every
" Se kind of you, my dear !" said my
wife, kissing Mrs. Markby, most affection
ately. I could hear the reports where I
"Se delightful! Really, hew nicely,
hew beautifully you arrange everything !
I can't have things se nice, with all my
" Run up stairs, dear, de!" said my
wife. "Yeu knew the room my room,
right hand, at the top of the stairs."
I heard tiie flutter of female wings en
the stairs. What was I te de ? If I
could have managed the ether leg, I
wouldn't have minded, but I couldn't. I
hadn't worn these dress things for a geed
while, and I don't get any thinner as I
grew elder. Ne, for the life of me I
couldn't dispose of that ether leg at such
short notice. What could I de? I could
only rush te the deer, and set my back
against it. Did I tell you this was our
house-warming party? I think net. Did
I tell you the landlord had altered the
house for us, making our bedroom larger
by adding a slip that had formed a separ
ate room ? I think net. And yet I ought
te have told you all these circumstances,
te enable you te understand the catastro
phe that followed. In a word, the deer
opened outward. I'd forgotten that pe
culiarity, never having a room se consti
tuted before, and never will again. The
deer went open with a crash, and I
bounded backward into Mrs. Markby's
arms. Smelling-salts and sal-velatile,
was there ever such an untoward affair !
The music struck up for the dances as I
hopped back into my room. I hid my
head among the bolsters and muffs and
almost cried ; for I'm such a delicate
minded man. Yes, it hurt mc a great deal
mere than it did Mrs. Markby. for, would
you believe it, she told the story down be
low te the whole company, with panto
mimic action, and, when I showed myself
at the dining room. I was received with
shouts of inextinguishable laughter.
I think I called the Yorkshire people
dense, just new, didn't I? Well, I'll add
another epithet coarse dense and coarse.
I told 'em se ; but they only laughed the
The guests were gene, the lights were
out, slumber had just visited my eyes,
when right into my brain, starting me up
as if I'd been shot, came a noise, a sort of
dull, bursting noise. I wasn't really cer
tain at first whether I had heard a noise
or only dreamed of it. I sat up in bed and
listened intently. Was it only my pulse
thumping into my cars, or were these
regular beats the tramp of somebody's
muflled feet? Then I heard an unmistak
able sound creak, creak, creak a deer
opened slowly and cautiously. All in a
moment the idea Hashed into my head
22,000. Yeu see, all this dancing and
junketing and laughing and chaffing had
completely driven out of my head all
thought of the large sum in my possession!
I had left it in a great-coat pocket which
was hauging up in the hall down stairs.
Puff! a gust of wind came through the
house, rattling the doers and windows,
and then I hcatd a deer slam, and a foot
step outside of some one cautiously steal
Away down stairs I went like a mad
mad, my one thought te put my hand en
that great coat. It was a brown great coat
with long tails, and two pockets behind,
and a little cash pocket en the left hand
side in front, and this breast pocket in
which I had the bag of money. This iock ieck
et wasn't, as usual, en the left hand side,
but en the right. There was no ether
coat hanging en these rails, only my wife's
waterproof. What a sweep I made te get
held of the coat ! Great heavens ! it was
I had carefully barred and chained the
front deer before I went te bed new it
was unfastened. I ran out into the street
and looked up and down, hopelessly and
bewildered. It was a dark, damp night ;
the lamp at the corner threw a long, sickly
ray down the streaming pavement, but
there wasn't a soul te be seen. Everything
was stili and cold and dark.
The money was clean gene yes, it was
gene. I repeated these words mechani
cally te myself as I crawled up stairs. All
the results et this less pictured themselves
clearly before me dismissed from the
bank. What could I de? Te what turn?
The blew that had fallen upon me was se
heavy and sudden that it had benumbed
my faculties. My chief desiie was te
crawl into bed and fall asleep, hoping
never te awake. But morning would come
sure enough morning and its attendant
Then the thought came te me : Should I
go te bed and say nothing at all about it?
Ne one knew of my having receiving that
money, net a soul but Black, a man who
had deposited it. I had given him no re
ceipt for it, no acknowledgment. Black
had gene te America a hundeed things
mi glit happen he might never return ; at
all events there was respite, immediate re
lief. I could go the bank next morning,
haug up my hat as usual, everything
would go en as before. If Black returned,
my word was as geed as his. 1 he notes
and checks would never be traced home.
But I don't think I retained, this thought
long. Did you ever consider hew much
resolution and force of will it takes te ini
tiate a course of crime a deception ? I'd
neither one nor the ether. I should have
broken down at once. I couldn't have
that fellow's eye en mc and tell him I had
never had that money.
I woke my wife ; she'd slept through all
the trouble ; " Mary," I said, " we're
ruined ; there's been a robbery."
"A robbery !" cried she, clasping her
hands, "and arc the men gene ?"
"Yes," I said.
"Oh, thank heaven !" she said, "then we
arc safe. Never mina the rest, Jack, as
long as our lives are safe. But there's my
waterproof, Jack de runand see if they've
Then I told her the story of the 22,000.
She wouldn't believe mc at first ; but when
she heard the whole story, she was fright
ened enough. Yet she had wits about her
mere than I had.
" Yeu must run off te the town hall,
Jack," she said, "and set the police te
work. They must telegraph te all the sta
tions te Londen and everywhere ! Oh,
de go at once, Jack this very moment !
Every second lest may be ruin te us."
Away I went te the town hall. This was
a big, classic edifice, with an immense por
tico and a huge flight of steps ; but you
did net go into the portico te get into the
police office, but te the side, which was
net classical at all, but of the rudimentary
style of architecture, and you went along a
number of echoing stone passages be
fore you reached the superintendent's
When I told the superintendent the story,
" Ah," he said, " I think I knew who did
"Oh." said I, "hew thankful I am
Then you can put your hands en him and
get back the money. I want the money
back, Mr. Superintendent never mind
him. I would net mind, indeed, reward
ing him for his trouble, if I could only get
the money back."
"Sir," said the superintendent, severe
ly, "the police ain't sent into the world te
get people's money back nothing of the
sort ; we aren't going te encourage compo
sition of felony; and for putting our
hands en Flashy Jee for he did the job,
mark you well, what de you think the
liberty of the subject is for? Where's your
I was obliged te confess I hadn't any,
whereat the superintendent looked at me
"New, let's see into the matter," said
he after he had made some note en a bit of
paper. " Hew came they te knew you'd
get the money in your coat ?"
I said I didn't knew.
"All, but I knew," said the superin
tendent. " Yeu went te get a glass of ale
after you left the bank, young man?"
I was obliged te confess I had done se.
"That's hew property gets stolen," said
he, looking at me severely. " And what's
mere, you had a glass with a friend. Ah !
I knew you had. And perhaps you get
talking te this friend of yours ?"
" Yes, indeed, I had?"
" Very well ; and mentioned about the
money veu'd just taken ?"
" Very likely."
" Then this Jee, depend upon it, was in
the crib at the time, and he heard you,
and followed you back te the bank ; and
you haven't get blinds but a wire netting
ever the window, and anybody outside
can see you counting out the geld and silver,"
" That's true," I said.
" Yes, I sec it all," said the superintend
ent, "just as Jee saw it. He fellows you
up here te yonder, and he sees you put
your money in your coat pocket, and then
he fellows you home, and when all's quiet
he cracks the crib. Oh. it's all in a nut
shell, and that's hew property gees. And
then you come te the police.'
"But, if you knew it's Jee, why don't
you send after him and catch him ?"
" Oh, we knew our own business, sir ;
you just leave it all te us. We shall have
Jee tight enough, if net for this job. auy auy
hew for the next. We give him a bit of
I couldn't put any lire into the man, de
what I would ; he was civil, th.it is, for a
Yerkshircman ; impassive ; he'e. de what
was right. I'll given the information ;
very well ; all the rest was his business.
Se I came home miserable, despairing.
It was just daylight by tins tune, ami as I
opened the shutters the debris of our
feast was revealed ; the lees of the lobster
salad, the picked bones of the chickens,
the melted residuum of the jellies; while
about everything hung the faint smile of
sour wine. I sat down amid all this
wretchedness and leaned my head en my
arms in dull, miserable lethargy. Then I
sprang up, and as I did se I caught sight
of myself in the looking-glass. Geed
heavens ! was this wretched, hang-deg
looking fellow myself? Did a few hours'
misery change a man like this ? Why, I
was a very felon in appearance, and se I
should bethought te be. Who would be
lieve this story of a robbery? Why, the
police didn't believe in it. else they'd have
taken a different tone. Ne ; I should be
looked upon as a thief by all the world.
Then my wife came down stairs, and
with a few touches restored a little order
and sanity, both te outward matters and te
my mind. She brought me some cellee
and an egg and some bread and butter and
after I had eaten and drunk I didn't feel
quite se bad.
"Jack," she said, "you must go te
Londen at once and sec the directors.
Have the first word and tell them all about
it all the particulars. It was only a little
bit of carelessness, after all. and perhaps
they'll leek ever it."
"Yes, that's all very well," I said. " But
hew am I te get there? I've get no
money. This wretched party has cleared
us right out.
"Berrow some of Cousins."
" He asked me te lend him a sovereign
last night, and I couldn't."
New, you'll say. " Here's a man with
out resources. Why did't he pawn his
watch ?" Te tell the truth, that's what I
did the week before, and the money was
all gene. "Then, under these circum
stances," you'll add, "it was immoral te
give a party." But you'll bear in mind
that the invitations had been out for a
fortnight, and we were then in funds.
" AVell, Jack." said my wife, "you must
get the man the P. B. te give you some
mere money en the watch. Sell it te him
right out. It must be worth at least ten
pounds, for it cost thirty, and you've only
had five upon it. Sell the ticket."
l es ; but where was the ticket ? V hy,
in the little cash pocket of my brown great
coat. Still, I had heard that if you lest a
ticket you could make the man give you
another; and Brooks, the pawnbroker,
was a respectable fellow, who, perhaps,
would help me out of my difficulty. I
went te him, anyhow, en my way te the
station. I fait like a ticket-of-leave man
as I went into his shop, but I put a geed
face upon it.
"Brooks,"' I said, "that watch you
knew the ticket it's stolen."
Brooks gave a most portentous wink.
He was a slew-spccched man, with a red
face and a tremendous corporation.
"Nay," he says, "my lad, theu'rt
" What de you mean ?'' I said, colerinir
up furiously. Every one suspected me, it
" Whei, it might ha' been stolen once,
but it aren't no ; 'avc get it here. This is
hew it were. A cadging sort e' chap
comes in, and he says, ' Master, what'U
you give me for this ticket ?' New, you
knew the hact don't allow us te give
naught in that kind e' way, but I says
te the chap, ' Let's have a leek at it :'
and then I &aw that it was yours, and I
said te the man : " My lad, you aren't
come honestly by this.' "
" And you gave him into custody, he's
in prison ? Old Brooks, what a capital
fellow you are ?
" Nay," he said : " I knewed better nor
that. De you think I'd expose a custom
er ? I knew you gents don't care about
these little matters getting abroad ; and se
I slaps my fist en the counter, and I says,
" Heek it !" just like that. And away he
went like a lamplighter."
I sank down en the counter, over
powered with emotion.
"And what's mere," went en Brooks,
"he never took up the money I'd lent him
en the coat."
" What coat?" I cried.
"A very nice brown coat he put up with
mc. About fit you, I should think. See,
here it is. "'
It was my identical brown great coat
wrapped up in a bundle and tied round
with my own handkerchief. I made a
dart at it, plunged my hand into the
breast pocket there was the roll of money,
there were the 22,000.
Hew did I go te the bank that morning,
en legs or wings? Anil hew did I get
home, as seen as I had put the money safe
away ? Mary knew by my face that it was
all right ; and didn't we have a jelly dance
of joy all around the house !
My burglar had been only a sort of
sneak, after all, who had get in at an open
window, and belted with the spoils of the
hall, but if he had taken the pains te leek
into the pockets of the coat, he'd have
been a rich though pcihaps miserable
and insecure man, and I should have been
utterly and deservedly ruined.
