Ouo of the doctors who recommended

on his list of nurses, and I have known
him to pay me what I would he earn

One day Dr. Fisher sent me to nuro
a nervous old lady who was very 111.
She was ery rich. and. althoue.li the
doctor was as diligent with a poor pa
tient as a rich one, he made his In

lie told me that my patient, M1.M Bar
tow, must not meet with auy shock.
for there was a heart complication in
her case, and even the violent slam
ming of a door might cause her death.
Imagine my horror at having bur
glars In the house with my patient
About midnight I was going from her
,, ,, ,
room to my own when a dazzling light
was uasneu in my eyes, i . mi-
pelled to run somewhere, but the mem-

I stood still while this was passing
through m.v mind and when I had
nerved myself walked toward where j
1 had seen the light, near the head of I
the staircase. I leaned over the ban
ister and waited. In another moment
the light was flashed again. Then I
"There Is a sick lady up here at the
point of death. Stay downstairs, and I
will go down nnd turn over what val
uables I can And."
"All right." said a man's voice.
lie flashed his light on me. and I
went down the stairs, feeling that he
might shoot me as I walked pr stab
me when I reached him. He went
down Into the hall (backward) nnd
when I reached It ordered me to go
Into the dining room, and there lie,
lighted the gnu. I saw a short, thick-'
Bet man. masked, who said to mo: i
"Now, what have you got?" !
Miss Bartow had been used to taking
the sliver upstairs, and I had not been
able to qulot lipr before settling for ,

whore she was used to keeninir it.
Had it been in any other room 1 would
have turned It over to the burglar at
once. As it was, I was obliged to plan.
To gain time I opened the sideboard
as though I expected to find it there.
then told the burglar that it was up-
talrs In the sick chamber.
He didn't believe me and. placing
he cold muzzle of a revolver on m.v
ear. said that If I didn't produce some
valuables he would kill me I was so
terrified that I told him I would get
home Jewelry nt once, but since Miss
Bartow had both silver and jewelry In .
her room I could do nothing. Finally j
tasnnrMnn (.Innilinrl inn ntnl X rnller- t
nted what 1 had said, telling him that . last Saturday evening. Lynchburg,
to remove anything from that room j Danville and many of the other nelgh
would inform the sick woman that boring towns were well represented
there wns n burglar In the house and
that would give her a shock from
which she would die.
"Go and get It." he said, but nt onca
reconsidered. "Where's your telo
phone?" he nsked.
"In there," I said and pointed to an
Instrument In the hall. He went to It
and looked at it. then ordered me to
bring him the valuables, saying that if
I was not back In four minutes he
would get them himself and kill every
one In the room
A great hope sprang up lu my breast.
Miss Barton, who was very timid, had
always had a telephone Instrument be
side her bed. I had begged her to per
mit me to move It Into the closet and
when the doctor commanded she con
Bented. I told the burglar that I would
bring him the valuables If he would
only go away on getting them and
went upstairs. lie followed me with a
flashlight till I had gone Into the room,
but could not very well follow me
further without going In with me
I went straight to the closet, shut
the door and called "Police!" several
times, giving tho location.
As I came out Miss Bartow, who had
been asleep, awakened and asked for
water. 1 went out and found the bur
glar waiting at the door. He had
heard the call ror water, but, seeing
me empty handed, seemed to be In
doubt whether to order me back, go in
the room himself or let me get tho
water. Perhaps he preferred not to
make n disturbance; perhaps he be
lieved my story about the invalid's
condition He ordered mo to "hurry
up," and, going into the bathroom. 1
drew n glass of water and took It Into
I dreaded for my patient the com
ing of the police and the disturbance
and what would follow. I must hike
on awful risk, doing out Into the hall,
J beckoned the man to follow me n
short distance from the sickroom and
"There's a telephone in the closet in
there, and I have called the police."
ne went down the stairs three or
four steps at a time nnd out of the
house. When the police arrived I told
them of the Invalid and that the bird
Miss Bartow got up again, but not
for long. She died shortly after the
burglar episode and left me $.r0.000.
Dr. Fisher was so well pleased with
xny handling of the case that he asked
me to become his permanent partner.
I accepted his offer and was glad to
