? matter-of-fact poetical genius says: I
overheard a moon-atruck chap, tho other
day, remark that ho loved a certain young
lady well enough to alo for her. Now, 1
lovo somebody very much, and
I'd Bwe-*r for hor
I'd tear for her
The Lord knows what I'd bear for her;
I'd dio for hor
I'd sigh for hor
I'd drink tho Hudson dry for her;
I'd "ouss" for her
Do ''wuss" for her
I'd kick up a thundering fuss for hor;
' Td weep for her
I'd leap for her
I'd go without any sloop for her;
I'd fight for her
I'd bito for her
I'd walk tho streets .ill night for her;
I'd plead for her
I'd bleed for her
I'd go without any "feed" for hor;
I'd shoot for ker
I'd boot for ber
A rivnl who'd como to ,,suit" for her;
I'd kneel for her
. I'd steal for her
Such is tho love I feol for hor;
I'd slide for hor
I'd rido for her
I'd swim 'gainst wind and tide for her;
I'd try for hor
I'd cry for her
But-hang mo, if I'd dio for her.

CHRISTMAS AT THE ANK*
I CONTINUED. J
We rented only tho ground und
first floors of the house. The rest
waa let out in offices, _ except tho
topmost story, in which lived a
house-keeper. The ground floor only
?was used as the publio part of tho
bank. It was ono long room, tem?
porarily fitted with counters and
partitions, ono' of which last cut off
a portion of tho space, and formed
a room for tho partners. Tho por?
tion thus cut off must hnve been
originally a court-yard, or perhaps
an out-house, projecting beyond tho
maiu body of tho house. It did not
reach higher than tho ground floor,
and was almost entirely covered by a
sky-light. Besides the front entrance
to tho bank, (that in tho lane,) there
was a second ono from tho court, and
tliis latter was always used aftor tho
putting np of tho shutters, which, in
fact, wero so disposed that once up
all communication with tho lauo was
cut off. There were two doors to
this entrance-an outer one, lc adiug
from tho court to tho stair-case,
which gavo access to tho offices above;
and a second inner one, opening
from this stair-coso into tho bauk.
The safe was, of course, kept in tho
division of tho bank set apart for thc
principals. These explanations aro
tedious enough, I know; but I could
not without them tell my story so as
to bo understood.
From tho naturo of tho building,
and tho fact that no one belonging to
us lived on the premises, it was
thought unsafe that tho bank should
ever bo left unguarded, and some
time before we moved into the now
place, an extra messenger had been
engaged, whose duty it was to walch
tho premises all uight, from the clos?
ing to tho rc-opening of the bank,
his wakefulness being tested by a
'.tell-tale." Somo little whilo niter
wo had moved in, ho complained, as
well ho might, of having to be on
duty from Saturday ovening to Mon?
day morning; and it wns then ar?
ranged that some of thc clerks shouh]
take it in turns to guard the bank on
I own that I was not very well
pleased to find myself on tho list of
those who were to bo mewed up in
thc closed bank periodically for some
seven or eight hours; but there was
no help for it. Our staff (never very
large) had a short whilo before been
reduced by the discharge of a clerk
immediately above mo iu tho bank,
for dishonesty, which had been
mainly instrumental in exposing.
Unwillingly enough; for, though for
some timo past there had been be?
tween Langston and myself a cool?
ness, tho result of his own courses,
which were such that I was more
shocked than surprised on accident?
ally discovering his frauds, yeti could
not forget that we had been friends,
and that as my senior he had smooth?
ed down several difficulties in my first
years at the bank. So much did I
feel this, that I refused tho promo?
tion which was the result of his dis?
missal; nor did I give way, save at
the request of tho principals, who,
on their side, at my prayer, agreed to
abandon Langston's prosecution.
This concession was grantod only ut
thc last hour. Langston waa already
in custody, and was on tho point of
beiug brought before tho magistrate,
?when I hastened to tell him that tho
firm would not appeur against him.
Little as I had expected in tho way of
thanks, I was inexpressibly shocked
by his rago ou seeing mc. Argument
would havo been in vain. I left him
with tho sad conviction that tho ulo
uiency of thu firm hud been thrown
away, and with tho knowledge that
one whom I had called my friend had
become a bitter enemy.
This had taken placo at the begin?
ning of November, and just after
our move. The reduction in out?
numbers caused by Langston's dis?
missal had not been made up; and
although I was promoted to a post
which would otherwise havo exempt?
ed mo from the duties of "house?
keeper," my advanco was too recent
for mo to bo greatly hurt when tho
head clerk requested mo to take my
share in tho now arrangements. I
was, however, annoyed to find that
my first turn would fall ou Christmas
day, which was to rank in this re?
spect with the Sundays.
"What shame!" said Julia, when,
on the morning of Christmas day, I
stood muffled np and ready to start
"Oh, don't gol"
"j? must, love," I said, us I pushed
back from her forehead the clusters
of bright sunny hair. "Don't be
silly, child," I added, as I kissed a
foolish little tear from her cheek.
"You know wo don't dine till G, on
account of Uncle John. I shall leave
the city at 5; half an hour's valk
home; half an hour's chat with him
-I suppose bo's sure to come, bv
"Of courso ho will. Oh, that hor?
rid bank! You make mo quiteangry;
and the first Christmas sinco our
"Well, good-bye, love. It won't
happen again. I must bo off now.
It's getting late, and unless I am
punctual, I can't expect to be re?
lieved in time."
"If you're a minuto later than
Imlf-past 5, I'll never kiss you any
more. Good-bye, bad boy!" and,
half laughing, half crying, sho opened
tho door to let mo out.
It was a lovely morniug, but very
cold. I walked sharply along Hol?
born to tho city, through streets that
to mo (mostly used to their week-day
aspect) looked strangely deserted.
As tho clock struck 9, I knocked nt
the entrance. Cole, the watchman,
opened it to me.
"Very cold, sir."
"Yes," I Baid, "flue morning. All
"Not a mouse stirring," he an?
swered, unconsciously quoting Ham?
"Have they sent in my lunch?"
I had ordered some fowl and a
bottlo of claret from the neighboring
"It came in last night, sir. You'll
find it on the counter, between thu
"That's right; candles and coals?"
"Everything there, sir."
"Very good, Cole; then don't stop
a minuto longer, for I shau't give
you any grace."
"I'll bo hero punctual at?. You
can depend on me. When I shut the
inner door, sir, you will please put
up tho bar. I'll shut tho outer ono
after me. Tho housekeeper aud
family are all out for tho day; but
I'vo seen that you've got everything.
You'll have the house nil to yourself. "
"t?o much the better. I shall be
quiet. Do yon smoke, Colo?"
"As you offer me a cigar, sir, I'll
keep it, with your permission; but I
never smoke till night.'"
"I do," I said, as I stooped to thc
"Would you like the lire lit i:i thc
partners' room?" asked Cole.
"No," I snid; "it's too cold in
there, with the sky-light. Good
morning, Cole," I said, ?>V< 1 let bini
out. "You'll bo punctual?"
"As the clock, sir," he answered.
And having watched him dowu tia
paved court, into the lane, I. shut tin
outer deer, locked and barred tin
inner ono, and then stretched niysell
before tho lire on a couple ol' chairs.
So I hiv, rending, till, all over tin
city, broke ont the chimes, and, clos(
i by, tho little clucked bell of tho al
most deserted church rang out, foi
half an hour, its warning to a fev
worshippers that the hour of servie*
( had come. I tried to picture to my
i self tho people whose footsteps
heard, now and then, along tho court
Now, it was au old, infirm step tho
tottered by, nearing the grave ever;
hour; and then I heard, mingle?
with other steps, the pattering o? :
child's feet, and the marry J ? 111 ? - voici
ringing through the cold air. Afte
a while, they all ceased. The tink
ling bell stopped, and then, softenc?
by distance, came thc penis of th
rich old organ. How strange i
seemed to mo to be there alone; am
to walk up and down tho partner;
room, as I did, profaning with th
smoke of my cigar those hallowei
Again and again I heard tho sol
tones of the organ, and when it bc
gan playing the psalm before the soi
mon, I ran up stairs to have a look i
tho church. The dingy trees in tli
church-yard, too hardy to be choke
out of existence, wero sooty blncl
and withered; cobbi such sticks 0V(
come to life again? It was a dismi
pince in winter, and looked, just nov
doubly cold and cheerless, for sno
had begun to fall heavily, and wi
j fast forming white lines on the leil<.
which projected over the bro ladder
and along tho tombs built into tl
walls. 1 gave a shudder, and harri?
back to my lire. The snow, I kno\
continued to fall thickly, for win
tho people came out of church,
could no longer, except when tin
were just under the arched entra?e
hear their footsteps, but only the
voices, as they hurried home to the
That set me thinking about n
lunch; so, for the sake of o?tragiu
, in a quiet sort of way, thc respect
i bility of the bank, I spread my clo
lon tho counter, and poured1 out
glass of wine, ironically asking m
self, accovding to the banking form
la, how I would take it? To short*
tho timo, I prolonged my lunch
much as possible, and wound up wi
a last glass to Julia's health; ai
then, to muko tho warmth of my fi
moro agreenblo by contrast, I thong
I would just run np stairs again,
look out once more. Thc untrodd
snow lay quito thickly all about t
court and church-yard, which look
dismal enough in tho fading ligl
it was time for afternoon service, b
I saw no signs of anything going o
so concluded that 'tho rubicund pi
son had gone home. As for the clerk,
I knew well enough that ho had long
ago doffed his Sunday coat, and that
ho-wah Bitting, with o ' 'church-war?
den" in his month-it sounds very
like cannibalism-sipping, every now
and then, something very hot and
very strong, as. a corrective to tho
sucking-pig. Tho wiud had risen,
and was driving tho snow-flakes
thickly against tho window. I carno
back to my fire, lit a candle, and tried
to read; but I kept thinkiug of Julia
and her pretty face, aud then I dozed
and nodded, and dozed again, and
got so sleepy-to tell truth, it was a
bottle of very good wino tho King's
Head had scut mc-that I hunted up
a lot of money-bags for a pillow, and
stretched myself at full length before
the fire. Four, struck the solemn
old clocks all around, so lazily that I
don't think the last had sounded
when I dropped off asleep.
I awoke with a start, roused by a
noise which had mingled with my
d"nams in some strango way. I felt
qt te cold, and no wonder, for thc
fire showed only n last glimmer; tho
candi? had burned quito out. "Won?
dering how long I had slept, I seized
tho poker, and was just goiug to stir
tho tire, when I fancied 1 heard a re?
petition of the sound which I had
taken for a part of my dream. It
was just like the noise a glacier would
make in removing a pane of glass,
and seemed to come from tho sky?
light iu tho iuuer room. This room,
ns I havo said, was divided from tho
rest of the bank by a partition which
extended to tho ceiling. It was of
wood, with tho exception of two
glazed doors, curtained to tho height
of about seven feet. Almost doubt?
ing whether I was really awake, I sat
for a moment listening iutentlj-.
Yes; there could be no mistake; tho
two doors wcro shut, but in the si?
lence, unbroken by any sound except
of tho ticking of the clock, I heard a
pane of glass quietly removed; then,
in quick succession, a second and a
third. At this moment, I heard the
chimes of a neighboring clock, and
waited impatiently for tho hour to
strike. 7! Two hours past tho time
at which I ought to have been re?
lieved by the watchman. The truth
flashed across me; he must have boen
got out of tho way.
I hesitated to stay where I was, or
to run the risk of trying to leave tho
bank in order to give tho alarm. The
danger to myself of either course
seemed about equal; for to leave tho
bank, I should have to unbar the
door, and the noise 1 should neces?
sarily make would draw on mc tho
attention of tho burglars. My hesi?
tation lasted for a few secou'ds ?inly,
but I was already too late; thc sound
in the next room convinced mo that
somo one had just descended.
My only plan now was to wail aud
keep quiet. Jusl then f heard ou
the shutters which closed the bank to
tho laue, a tapping, ? videutiy a sig?
nal from confederates outside, lt
was a little too carly, for it must
have been quite inaudible in thc room
beyond, where were those for whom
it was intended; but I know that a
few seconds later I must be discover?
ed. Tho plan of signaling had, no
doubt, been arranged, and tho ti rs I
step taken by the burglar who lnul
just descended would bi towards tin
iront of tho bank, to exchange sig
nuls with those outside. I hurried
mentally over the means of defence
at baud; how I longed for a pair ol
tho horso pistols that in the old bani
had formed a circle on tho wall be
hind the counter! Unluckily, in tin
confusion of moving, they had beet
stowed away-whore, it muttered not
if I could not at that instant lay nr
hand on thom. The poker was stil
in my hand; for want of a bette]
weapon, I grasped it tightly, ant
noiselessly raised it from thc fender
The taps from the outside wore rc
peated; I could not be too quick,
listened for a second in tho directioi
ul* tho room beyond, and distiuctl_
heard n whispering. There wer
then two men. I was puzzled. WI?;
should thc one who ha already de
scendetl not open tho door to thoa
who were signaling outside? It wu
no tiuio to make conjectures; care
fully placing the poker on tho heart
rug, I rapidly pulled off my boots,
had on a pair of thick worsted stool
ings; they would enable mo to ge
noiselessly behind the door, and tin
as the burglars passed, I should g<
tho first blow, at al' e> nts. But b<
hind which door, for there wer
two? Luckily, I recollected thu
wishing during the morning to leav
the inner room, 1 had found ono (
the doors locked from outside-m
.side -and had to go out by th
otlur. Good! And tho unlockc
door was the nearest to me. I seize
my poker, and moved stealthily t<
ward the post I had assigned fmysol
Wo had not acquired that instinctif
knowledge of the arrangements whit
in a familiar locality enables on
oven iu complete darkness, to strett
out that hand with tho certainty i
its meeting the expected object,
groped about clumsily, and in gettii
over the counter, which 1 didtoavo
opening a creaking door, \ made
slight noise. Happily for n.c, at th
very moment tho attention of tl
burglars was distracted; the sccoi
had just descended with . . ise th
called forth tho mntte' curses
tho first. I hastily poste Thyself b
hind tho door, aud wniu>u brent
les?ly, for I heard tho scratch of
lucifer, tho adjustment of a dark la
tern aud a sharp click. Then oue
the men suggested that boforo begi
ning tho job, thoy should look rom
to sec that all was safe.
How I blessed the lucky accident
of the locked door, whon I heard
them try that one firstl Had it beeu
open, I should havo been discovered
at once. "Shall I break tho glass?"
asked one. "What for, you fool?"
whispered the other, "to inuko n
row? There's a door on tho other
side; try that first." "S'pose we find
some one here?" asked tho first voice,
and in reply I heard a significant tap
and a low laugh. Their feet were
listed, so that I could hardly hear
their tread as they neared me. I
raised my arm that it might havo full
play instantaneously, and gripped my
weapon with a firm determination to
bo beforehand with ono of tho men
at least. I shudder now as I think
of the savage eagerness with which I
awaited my opportunity. It was not
long in coming; tho handle of the
door turned softly, and by tho dim
light of the lantern I saw pass beforo
mo a short burly figure. I could not
see his face, but I knew its type from
what I did see; the man was a coarse,
heavy scoundrel-by trade a night
robber, and, if need should be, a
murderer. I felt no remorse, but
with the full sweep of my arm
brought down tho heavy poker on
tho back of his bull-neok, just at tho
base of tho skull. Tho blow was
well aimed; ho fell like au ox; but
even before ho reached the ground,
I had left my retreat and turned to
face tho second man, who I know
must be following him.
Tho light of tho lantern, as it fell
with the burglar, was thrown ou n
faco I had known for years. My arm
fell powerless, and though my lips
moved to pronounce a name, I was
dumb. Tho light was dashed out,
but through the dark I saw tho gleam
of Langston's eyes, as, with a savage
oath, he sprang on me. Unprepared
as I was for his attack, I lost my foot?
ing, and we .rolled together over thc
mau I had felled.
Langston and I were both strong
men, but in the days of our friend?
ship, I had always had, in our trials
of strength, to acknowledge his su?
periority. His dissipated life hue
deprived him of some of his usual
force, but as his grip closed on me, I
felt that the madness of his inge hat
more than restored it all to him,
Luckily, we fell in such a way that 1
recovered first, and thus gained au
idvantago in our relative positions
without which my chances would
bave been gone. The struggle wa:
terrible; was it long? I thought so
for tho efforts and exertions of main
n minute were crowded into, perhaps
only a few seconds.
I felt that his fury was overpower
tug me, but by a tremendous effort

loved voice. "Quick! quick! the;

tage from a gruff voice, thc Crash o
