in New York, nn'l next door to mo

with Iht granddaughter. Need 1 say
that thai young poi son is iiniisirilJy
attractive?' 1 regict to say, however,
that, any advances on iuy part in that
direction were mot at lirtf with mucli
indifference. Of course an acquaintance
with tlie oh! lady I. ad to bo inadi, and
a very queer old lady was she. tYith a
great many eccentricities, sho had 0110

as a iost, she assured n. thai lhn least
noise disturbed !i -r of ni jl.ts, as tho
dread of robbers was ai nay's on her
mind. Wlu-thor tho voting lady shared
her grandmother's fears or not, I did
not know. I rather hoped sh' did.
If, as I thought to nn-i'lf, I could
only take advantage of this old wo
man's fancies, that miht frivu me nn

lady, opening wide her mouth and
" "Yes; a single hammer."
"Hut I should be so torrifiod that if u
robber wero to break in I never could
use it. I couldn't knock him down with
it," The old lady was terribly Mus
tered. "I didn't mean a hammer to bo used
as a weapon. 0, dear, no; quite differ
ent from that. Your mom in your
house and mine in my house are adja
cent, ami tho head of your bed is just
near miuo. Now I will buy you a small
hammer, and all you have to do is to
tako .it to bed with you. At the least
noise, tako your hammer and give three
raps on tho wall. I will at once under
stand that by that is meant a precau

threo raps, good. I wake up at once,
and, springing out of bed, put on my
clothes. 1 am prepared for action, as it
were. Then, should your fears con
tinue, you keep on rapping. I under
stand at oncrt that the danger is immi
nent. Then I seizo tny revolver, cock
it, rush down stairs, bound over tho
fence, and my presence ut once discon
certs tho robbers. They endeavor to
escape; I shoot two or three of them,
and you and your charming grand
daughter are saved."
"It's very dreadful, but quite kind
and thoughtful of vou, and so ingenious.
I do believe that if I knew that some
one was watching for my safety half my
fears would be dissipated." The old
woman really looked quite grateful.

put on trial. In fact, by means of the
hammer system we might dpense with
the police'etitirely. Once, when I lived
in quite a deserted neighborhood a
long row of houses in a suburban por
tion of the city, I organized a hammer
alarm. I had' to do it for self-protection.
There had been robbery after
robbery in the row, and the police were
afraid to interfere. Kverybody in that
row went regularly to bed with a ham

row. In six seconds every inmate in
'.ho row had been informed that a bur
glarious attempt was being made. You
might have beard the three taps work
ing along from house to house in the
stillness of the night. Every body
turned out under my lead. We made a
cordon, swept the street, anil captured
six or seven of the robbers. I don't ie
member the number of them exactly,
only that they wore the, most blood
thirsty rascals known in the annals of
Tho old lady, whose hair fairly stood
up by this time or would have stood
up if si,.- ! ; 1 had any was profuse in
her thanks. Just what. I wanted took
place. I was invited next evening lo
take tea, and the old lady in person
showed me her garden, so that I might
understand the lay of the land.
Now I had reeounoitered tho prem
ises before, not that 1 thought anything
ever would happen, but really out of
consideration for the young woman.
The fence was not a very high one,
though adorned with spikes. To facili
tate my climbing, I rolled a big barrel
near it. I could step on that, and then
with a slight clfort could scale the
fence. I showed my plans of succor
and tho old lady approved of them. I
bought a tack hammer, presented it to
her, and explained to her in detail the
method of signaling.
The tea was a very pleasant one,
and tho young lady agreeable. I went
to bed that night quite happy, and quite
forgot all about the signals. In fact, a
week or so elapsed, and nothing occur
red to break tho quiet of that really
I am a sound sleeper generally, but
on a certain night not long afterward
thero was such a terrible storm of wind
and rain, with rattling of windows, that
my usual rest would not come. At last
I went oil into a half-dreamy doze, when
suddenly close to my ear I was awaken
ed with'a start I beard tho three omi
nous taps on the wall! I never listened
to anything so dreadful in my life. Was
I awake? I waited a while. It was tho
precautionary signal, but not the posi
tive alarm, ftat-tat-tat went that devil's
tattoo on the wall; then 1 knew that
danger was imminent. I looked out of
the window and it was raining eats and
dogs. I shuddered! Still the cursed
rapping of tho hammer reverberated
through thn room. 1 bustled on my
clothes. I never bad a revolver in my
life, and, had I owned one, would not
have known bow to shoot it off. I wish
ed I had not lied so, but I always was
romantic. The rapping continued like
mad. Suppose there were real, true for
true robbers next door! What could a
single, poor, inoffensive, unarmed young
man like me do against a whole gang of
bloodthirsty house breakers? I knew
that they would murder mo for inter
fering with their legitimate business. I
thought once I would open the window
and veil, "Murder! thieves!" but my
window looked ou the yard, and the
wind was howling so thai had .there
been a whole squad of police below not
one of them would have heard me. It
was dreadful to be waked up that way,
to walk to sudden death, ami so unpre
pared as I knew I was. I cured my
oflioiousncss. I was dressed somehow,
at least, and went slowly shivering
down tho stairs, making all the noise 1
could, but it was just one of those sellish
hoarding houses where the inmates
never take notice of anything. I opened
the back door which led to the garden.
I was wet to the skin before I found
Iho barrel, and what was mysterious
about it was that the barrel bad been
moved away from the fence. In a
minute, It Hashed across my mind that I
did I once venture into the adjacent
garden my retreat would be cut off, and
that, as the victim of some illation

At last, however, at the expense of
several severe excoriations,. I was over
the fence. 1 gazed at tho back of the
house. All was still-still as death
there was a lull in tho storm. I waited
to hear the agooizod mcrenui of tho vio
tims, but there whs nothing save an ap
palling stillness. Then something rus

bounded past me. No lights were visi
ble. I waited len minutes, exposed to
the drenching of the pitiless storm, for
it rained now harder than ever; then
feeling that if the worst had come it was
all over now, and I could do nothing, I
retreated quietly, deliberately climbed
the fence, and at hist regained my bod,
I was miserable, chilled to tho marrow,
and so nervous ami excited that I never
went to sleep any more during the
whole of that wretched night.
Next morning.having recovered some
what from tho effects of that night of
terror, I awaiied with much anxiety the
appearance of that old lady at her door,
for she always took in the milk herself.
Should she "nut respond to the milk
man's call, then the mystery would be
solved, llut she did turn up. I at onco
went to the door, and I expected that
sho would have a story of some dread
ful character to impart to me, and I
was ready to tell her how I had saved
her and her granddaughter from death,
when, much to my disgust, after having
exchanged an ordinary good-morning
with me, she was about re-entering w ith
"You had a most narrow escape last
night," 1 said,
"0, yes," she replied, smilingly; "it's
half water, and mighty blue and thin."
Evidently sho referred to the milk.
"If if had not bocn for me," I said,
"you would have been murdered in
your beds; I was up and out. In three
seconds after tho iirst stroke of tho ham
mer I was in your garden. I hope vour
charming granddaughter has suffered
no inconvenience; I am quite positive
that they tho robbers were around
last night, and my timely presence scat

"lint vou hammered away like n Iirst
"Indeed 1 did not." said she, "and
my milk, that is all gone; I slepped un
common well, better than usual. I
always sleep soundly when it rains."
Would it be believed that the old
woman denied the hammer incident in
toto? Had 1 been dreaming? Wa it
force of imagination, tlio teeming of a
delirious bruin? A shocking bad cold
in my bead anred me that it had been
I was quite out of heart all tho next,
day, and went to bed nt uight in a most
unhappy state of mind. as my rest
to be broken in upon again? I had
hardly fallen off into a feverish slumber
when I heard that areu-ed hammer
again. I covered my head with the
bedclothes. Kat-tat-tat it went. It could
not be a hammering of my imagination,
for I put my ear to the wall and felt the
vibration through the fliniy partition.
0, the unutterable selfishness of that,
old woman! And what if she were rob
bed of a silver teapot or so, or a dozen
teaspoons! 1 was desperate now. I
rushed down stairs. Fortunately it was
not. raining. I found my barrel at once,
and that was reassuring. I excoriated
myself again. I scaled the wall ami
landed w ith a crah on the other side on
a pile of flour pots some one had care
lessly placed there. I wailed a moment
for the noise to subside. I knew that if
nnv robbers were there tho row I had
mad must stall le them. I rubbed a
very badly skinned ankle and waited,
and nothing came.
Night alter night went on that ac
cursed hammering. Was I to be doom
ed to the terrible tak of discovering
thieves In that old lady's garden; and
what was worse, my cnivalrouscouduet,
my dallying with death, receiving no
recognition? Evidently there wussomfe
mysierv. I wa the victim whoso sad
end was being plotted.
1 never went to sleep after that with
out st u fling cotton in my ears, and al
ways in a most, wretched frame of mind.
I was a martyr of my disinterestedness.
I was being robbed of my sweet sleep.
Life became a burden to me. The old
lady was either laboring under some
hallucination, or 1 was crazy. There
was only one thing which made me suf
fer all these torments, and that was the
belief that I was a hero in the eyes of
the granddaughter. I cannot say that
she ever directly expressed herself in
that way, but looking at her at times
when I met her in tho street, as I ad
dressed a few words to her, I thought I
recognized un expression on her face
which told me of her sympathy.
These nocturnal visits at last preyed
on my spirits. I went to bed now with
my clothes on. I had bought a second
hand revolver. I had become reckless
I am quite sure that had I mot a Riuall
boy about the size of Oliver Twist at
night in the, old lady's garden, I should
have shot him.
The rapping would cease for a night
or two, and then commence again. I
felt that this business must come to a
stop. My employers, leading grocer.?,
had noticed my sleepiness during- busi
ness hours, ami had complained about it.
One night this summer, wearily I
climbed the garden fence, pistol in hand
for it had become a mechanical pro
cess now--and I dropped into a wash
tub of water, placed with devilish in
genuity on a three-legged stool. As I
fell over, my pistol went off. The neigh
borhood was aroused at last, but I no
stinctly heard, in the bath-room that
overlooked the old lady's garden, peals
of laughter, and a young woman up-
pea rcu nt. me winnow wiio was
ontlv en jot ing the scene.
If this brutal conduct, on the part of
that girl were not sutllcient, think of
the impertinence of a young man who
called next day on me 'at my place of
business. As l' have said. I am a clerk
in the wholesale grocery line, and drug
gists' clerks are always stuck-up crea
tures. Tho young sprig twirled a stick
in one hand, and in the other he had a
card. I am to suppose bis naino was
written on it. "See here," he said,
making his slick whiz through the
air within a few inches of my nose,
"See here, oleomargarine, cod-lish,
prunes, pickles, ami glucose, you have
been fooling around grandmother's
place long enough, ami yon uro a pro
cious ass, and Mary Jano-that's tnv
cousin, a lady I am going to marry
has had quite enough of your nonsense.
What a prime proprietary idiot, with a
revenue stamp on it, you are not to
know that the old lady das got robber
on the brain bad when she's awake, but
when she's asleep of nights, bless her,
she snot es away like a bumuiiiig-top.
A Chinese cracker under her ear
wouldn't as much as faze her. Now,
the ohl woman never had any use for
iour hammer, but I guess from what
lary Jane has told uie hu has been
pounding around with it quito pro
miscuously. Now, sco hero, hero is
your hammer, and do you tako it, be
fore I make you swallow it, handle,
claw and all, just ns if it wero a glass of
cream soda; and tho very next time I
hear you havo ventured to cross that
fence, or put that big foot of yours in
my grandmother's house, I will just
thrash you dizzy; and listen to some
pod iidvieecbnngo your boarding
house, tigs, even if you have to go back
on your landlady."

"But," said Sam, "let me tell you a

There was no objection to that, so
Sam arose and told his story. Said he:
"When I was lifteen years old my pa
rents sent me to a singing school. We
had a good teacher, and plenty of pret
ty girls, and I rather enjoyed it.
"I wanted to be a singer, and I tried
hard to learn, though the teacher, at
the end of the first month, told nie I
was only wasting my time. But I was
not to be put down in that fashion.
Others learned losing. Why shouldn't I?
"Well, I snick to it for a jear, and
during all I hat time I never once open

I tried it in t lu: cow-shed. I took a
good look to sne that, nobody was uear;

where the cows and oxen were tied to

briudle cow broke her stanchion short
off and got clear, and was making for
the door, fine of the oxen had driven
his head through tho side of the barn
and was suffocating.
"Naturally enough, I suspended my
singing, and tried to quiet the animals
but I couldn't get near them. And ,'et
I will just say hero, it was close on twe
weeks, before I could convince those
cows and oen that I was a safe niHn
to be near them.
"Well, I didn't practise singing any
more in the shed; but shout a month

A good many yens ago a Cashier
took a little lad from a neighboring
poor house, ami when the boy had be
come a youth he was given a responsi
ble position in the bank of which his
patron was pruetieallytho head. Lator,
tho Cashier stole mine than $1,0,1)00
from the bank. Exposure was threat
ened every day, and the guilty officer,
in a period of depression, confessed to
the youth that be proposed to kill him
self. Young Kay, the protege, was
smitten with horror, as ho thought of
tho terrible turn in affairs, but having
weighed the matter, the next day he
threw himself into the breach. Ho
suggested, and the Cashier eagerly ac
cepted tho suggestion, that ho should
fasten the guilt upon himself and ab
scond, thus leaving his patron honest
in tho world's eyes, though blackened
iu his own. What the public hoard of
the West port robbery was that a bank
