U . THE BOCK ISLtAND J&BGU8.
SATURDAY, AP11IL. 20, 1889.
The baafe had been robbed I Such Was the
discovery made by Mr. Ehenezer Orubb, late
one Saturday night, and tte information
waa obtained in thin wise: Frank Jackson, a
junior clerk, who lodged on the opposite side
of the street, a little distance down, was sit
ting that evening at bis window. He lingered
over a quiet pipe, lintlowly watching the
passers by, and dusk crept on unnoticed by
him. He was about to draw the blinds and
light the gas wbeu two men passed on the
other side, one of them pausing and looking
up toward his window, while the other went
on to the bank and knocked at the private
door. The young man's curiosity was aroused
upon seeing the one who remained enter a
doorway as if for concealment; so standing
behind a curtain he watched them.
The dull, gray front of the bank was lit by
a street lamp, and as the man who knocked
turned round while waiting Jackson recog
nised Mark Heeley, tho senior cashier. After
a little delay the door was opened by the res
ilient porter, and he and Senley entered the
building. In a minute or two they came out
again and the porter went toward a cross
street, while the cashier stood at the door,
apparently waiting his return. However,
no sooner bad the man turned a corner than
8eeley again went in uud his companion hur
ried toward the bank. As the lamplight fell
upon him Prauk recognized another of the
clerks, an intimate of Keeley's, named Will
lama. They reappeared in two or three min
utes, and WillituiiH, carrying in each band a
Small Gladstone bag, hastened down a by
street and was out of sight before the porter
returned. Then, after a minute, the cashier
took the same direction.
Jackson wan puzzled to explain these move
ment, especially as Williams had a couple of
days' leave, and was supjiOHed to be far from
Oretown. Seeloy was a high and well paid
officer, possessing the entire confidence of his
employers. Prank sometimes thought that
confidence misplaced. At all events, he had
reason to believe thut both meu speculated in
stocks; a practico which the partuors strictly
forbade to tliuir stall.
It was only a few days before that one of
the clerks, gluncing through an evening pa
per, cried: "Hallol '1 Dorados' are gone
down to nothing; the affair is a cotnplote
smash! By Jove, I know a fellow who hod
some of them." Jackson noticed Seeloy turn
whita; the hand that hold the pen shook, and
ha turned round to speak in a whisper to
Williams, who listened with a dazed look on
Prank felt uneasy. Ho know nothing cer
tain, and it was an unpleasant tusk to men
tion his auspicious to hisemployers. however,
he determinral to do so, and at onco set on to
seek Mr. EIxmipzoi- Gruhb.
Hardly knowing what result to hope for;
dreading Mr. Grubb's annoyuuee, tm the one
hand, if his suspicions wt-re wrong, uiul fear
ing robbery, on tho other, Prank accom
panied the principal to the bank. Mr. Eben
eser walked straight to the strong room, and
opened it with his private, keys, und then
throwing open the chest in which the cosh
was kept, proceeded to uxomiiie its couteuta
A gas jet just aliove them throw a bright
light into the recesses of the safe, and showed
the banker tome parcels of bonds, a small pile
of silver and copper, and nothing more.
Tha chief clerk, an old man, who, as
well as the porter, lived on the premises, was
by this time on the spot, arid held open a
"There should bo there," ho said, in an agi
tated voice, in reply to Mr. Grubb's question,
"thirty -one thousand six hundred and seven
teen pounds, eight shillings and ninepence.n
There was no sign of force having been
used; and the chief clerk produced his key,
which he averred had not left his hands since
tha safe was locked thut afternoon, wheu the
money was certainly there. Mr. Seeley often
borrowed it during business hours. With
that exception he never lust sight of it
The porter returned to say that Mr. Seeley
waa not expected home until Monday morn
ing; and the man explained that the cashier
called that evening for something he forgot
in his desk, and sent him on an errand which
occupied perhaps ten minutes.
There hardly remained a doubt that the
two clerks were the culprits; and Mr. Grubb
at once placed the matter in the hands of the
Frank Jackson long lay awake that night,
wondering whether the events of the last few
hours would bring him promotion; and if so,
what effect it would have on a certain cher
ished scheme of his.
Six or eight months before he had met at
picnic Mary Grubb, the junior partner's
daughter, a fair, winsome little thing, with
dimpled cheeks and eyes soft as those of a
fawn. She had just returned from school,
and before Prank knew who she was he ad
mired her. Upon learning that she was Mr.
Ebenezer's only child, bo was keenly disap
pointed, for the daughter of the wealthy
banker was, be feared, beyond his reach. In
pita of this his attentions were not dimin
ished, and before the day was at an end he
adored her. She received his little services
with marked favor, he thought, and even so-,
bar reflection could not prevent him from en
tertaining hopes which any oue but a lover
would have considered wild.
Mary often drove down for her father, and
tt generally fell to Frank's lot to take a mes
sage out, asking her to wait, or to call again,
which furnished opportunities for a pressure
of the band and a few words. lie was not
endowed with an undue amount of vanity;
bat he could not help seeing that on these oc
casions her eye brightened and a vivid blush
sprang to her cheek; and he could not help
thinking that, if his happiness depended on
bar, it would not be long deferred. But the
social gulf between them kept bis lips sealed.
The events ot the evening would probably
bring him promotion, and ho wondered if
they would bring him nearer to Mary. His
thoughts dew from her to the robbery, and
back again, until sleep deserted him, and his
brain grew dizzy.
Suddenly a thought 'flashed through bis
mind; and, in the midst of the dark room, on
the walls, on the ceiling, there appeared be
fore him, as in letters of fire, a remark of
Beeloy's, uttered months Iwfore.
Borne of the clerks were discussing the ar
rest of a dishonest lank clerk, and Seeloy
said, laughingly: "If fellows will do that
kind of thing, they ought at least to show
some common sense lu their method of es
cape. If be had gone to some quiet seaport,
hired or bought a yacht, and sailed quietly
off, he would now be enjoying himself in
The tone, the cynical laugh rang in Prank's
ears, and It occurred to him thnt Seeley
would probably adopt some such course.
Twenty miles away, on a branch line, stood
North port, a yachting center, and Williams
might easily, on the previous day, have ar
ranged for their flight.
Early on Sunday morning he called on
Mr. Grubb to inform him of this idea, which,
by being dwelt upon, had become a convic
tion. As Frank entered the banker's study
Mary left it, her face pale and her eyes red,
and Mr. Ebenezer himself sot listlessly in a
easy chair looking haggard.
"Above all," said the latter, when Jackson
had finished what he went there to say, "si
lence about this wretched affair is necessary
for the present. I do not mind telling you
that It has occurred at a rather unfortunate
moment, as we shall be obliged to got accom
modation, and to pay a heavy price for it;
sod If the story of tho robbery leaks out pre
maturely, we may be ruined."
The young man was flattered by the confi
dence, and, as be looked at the weary face
and heavy eyes, eloquent of anxiety and
sleeplessness, and remembered Mary's trou
bled features, a feeling of wrath against those
who caused all this grief possessed him.
After a short silence Mr. Grubb said:
"Perhaps you would not mind running
over to North port yourself and making in
quiries. I nave faith in your shrewdness,
and shall give you a letter to an old friend of
oars, a magistrate there, who will help you
if necessary. Here is some money, and re
member, my lad, that time is of vital impor
tance." The trust made Frank color with pride.
His first hope was that fortune might make
him instrumental in saving his employers
from disaster; but be may be pardoned if
there also entered into bit mind a wish to
earn a smile "from Mary, as well as ber
father's gratitude. .,
A few inquiries among the North port police
and the loungers of the beach satisfied him
that hia surmises wre correct. Some days
More two jrratiemen, whose description tal
lied with that of the runaways, "bought a
small schooner yacht from a local builder.
The crew were ordered to bold themselves in
readiness, stores were shipped, and the new
owners arrived by the last train on the pre
vious night They met the seller on board,
paid the purchase money, and at once sailed
for a month's cruise, they said.
"I have an urgent message for them," said
Frank to an old salt "Would it' be possible
to get a fast steamer here and overtake
"Well, sir, ef 'eo could borry that thur
craft," pointing to a small, rakish looking
steamer, whose brass fittings gleamed in the
morning sun, "yes. They must V gone
south; and her 11 go nigh on to twenty knoU
Frank looked longingly at the vessel; and,
upon hearing the name of the owner, his
heart bounded. It was the person to whom
Mr. Grubb's letter was addressed.
"I fear yours is a wild goose chase," said
that gentleman, when the young man had
told his story and explained his object
"However, the Grubbs are dear old friends,
and the Lorna is at your serv ice. Come with
me,aud I ahull give directions to the mas
ter." In little more than an hour the Lorna was
steaming swiftly out of the harbor, and
Prank, standing on the bridge beside the cap
tain, felt almost intoxicated as the vessel's
head rose and fell, and a fresh breeze blew
across the sunlit sea, fanning his hot brow.
"There was a light norVest wind all
night," remarked the captain; "and if we
say they're eighty or ninety miles ahead we
sha'nt be far out I dont suppose we'll over
take her before dark," the captain went on,
"so we'd better take it easy, lest we might
pais 'em in the night"
They left their course several times, in or
der to moke inquiries of passing vessels.
Some had not seen "a thirty ton yacht,
schooner rigged, green below the water line,
and with a broad gold stripe." Others
thought they had, and gave such contradic
tory information that it was of no benefit
As the sun went down dark clouds arose to
windward, and it became wet and stormy.
All through the night the wind moaned, the
waves swirled and hissed about the Lorna's
bow and fell in masses on ber deck, and the
rain full heavily at intervals. "Five pounds
a man," Frank had said, "if we overtake
her I" He had promised the captain and the
policeman whom he had brought with him
liberal gratuities if the chase ended success
fully; he himself was too agitated to think of
repose. Accordingly, throughout the night
all were on tho alert, peering into the dark
ness as the vessel slowly pursued a zigzag
"A wild goose chase Indeed, I fear," Jack
son said, sorrowfully, as morning broke, find
ing him cold, hungry and exhausted.
"Never fear, sir," replied the skipper.
" Twill be hard if we don't meet 'em before
they get out of St George's channel."
The warm autumn sun again poured down
upon the sea, the wind fell to a fresh breeze,
and save in the lofty crested billows that sur
rounded them there remained uo trace of
last night's storm.
At length they got positive news. A yacht's
captain met the object of their pursuit an
hour before steering due south. He -could
not be mistaken; he knew the Eulalie very
well and his crow recognized her too. The
Lorna was put at full speed, and bounded
forward, throbbing and panting not climb
ing the waves, but cleaving them, and over
either side of the bow a constant stream of
water poured inward and rushed along the
"There she is!" exclaimed the captain, who
for some minutes had been silently scanning
the horizon, and he handed theglass to Frank.
It was some time before the young man could
discern anything; then he saw the dark bull,
the slender spars and the white sails like gos
samer against tho sky.
Soon figures were seen on board the Eulalie,
then the sails were slightly altered, and as the
little craft heeled over the foam flew iu clouds
from her bow. Pursuit was evidently sus
pected, for two men at the stern did not take
their eyes from the steamer, which was rap
idly overhauling them and darkening the sea
with a dense cloud of smoke.
At length the two vessels were abreast, the
Lorna about fifty yards to leeward of the
other. There was no one on the Eulalie's deck,
except three or four sailors in blue guernseys
and red caps.
"Tell your gents," roared the master of the
steamer, "that there's some one here wants
Oue of the mea thrust his head down the
cabin stairs, and in a few niumeuta replied
with a grin: "He is to come ou board if he
There was a heavy sea running and the
Eulalie was going at perhaps ten miles an
hour, so that boarding, if not impossible, was
at least dangerous. The policeman, who was
in plain clothes, and whose identity no one on
board the Lorna suspected, came forward and
"Now, my lads, I am a police officer and
have a warrant for the arrest of two men for
a bank robbery. Tou are all known, and, if
you aid them to escape, will get into trouble."
The jaw of the Jocular yachtsman dropped,
and be went forward to his fellows. After a
short consultation they sprang to the hal
yards, and the mainsail coming down with a
rush and a clatter, the vessel righted and her
speed at once diminished. At the same mo
ment Frank saw at a port hole Seeley 'a face,
white and terror stricken.
The Lorna was brought nearer, a boat
was lowered, and Frank, the officer and the
master went on board the Eulalie. As they
stepped on the deck a pistol shot was heard,
and they rushed toward the cabin.
Prank was the first to go down, and he
saw the two fugitives. Williams lay on a
cushion at one side of the compartment, his
faoe covered with blood. Opposite him sat
Mark Seeley, an expression of abject terror
on his pale face, one band hanging" loosely
and holding a revolver, which dropped from
his uervelees fingers as Jackson came down.
He uttered a hoarse cry and made a feeble
effort to seize the weapon ; but Frank grasped
his arm and he fell back on the couch, faint
ing. The young man turned toward Will
iams, who, amid his agony, was looking con
temptuously at his accomplice.
"We thought of sinking the vessel," he
said, in a weak voice, "but found it too
slow. Then we agreed to shoot ourselves. I
led off, but that cur backed out, though it
was all his doing. He took the impression
of the other key, and" His eyes became
glazed, ho fell back, and In a few moments
After a search Prank found in a locker the
two Gladstone bags, which, to within a thou
sand pounds the purchase and fitting out of
the yacht, probably contained the whole of
the stolen property.
"She's leaking!" exclaimed the skipper of
A small stream ran from under a closed
door, and trickled across the floor. It rapidly
grew larger, and suddenly the door was burst
open and a volume of water poured into the
little cabin, rising to the height of the
couches. The master of the steamer sprang
np the stairs, Frank followed with the pre
cious bags, and the officer, grasping Bee
ley's arm, said: "Now, sir, if you please,"
and pushed him toward the deck.
As the policeman took a pair of handcuffs
from bis pouch the ex-cashier looked wildly
round, and, with his hands pressed to his
"Oh, my God I am I going back to Oretown
for people to stare atf"
Then he looked over the side, and the of
ficer, fearing an attempt at suicide, hastily
seized his arm.
"She's sinking) she's sinking I" came from
some of the sailors: and the bow of the Eula
lie was suddenly raised out of water.
There was a moment of confusion, during
which Mark Seeley bounded toward the
cabin, and before be could be stopped had
closed and bolted the door. The burly officer
threw himself against it and made it quiver,
but was unable to open it . ,
- Meanwhile the bow rose slowly, higher and
higher, and for their own safety those on
board the Eulalie were obliged to leave the
doomed craft They bad reached tho Lorna
when the end came. The yacht rolled from
side to side, and gradually sank lower; then
the deck blew up with a loud crash; a mass
of foam and spray hid tha Eulalie for a mo
ment, and when it had cleared away she was
The steamer was beaded for the nearest
seaport, and as Frank drove toward the rail
way station be saw in the window of a news
paper office a poster, in front of which a
crowd was gathered. One or two of the
word I attracted his attention, and stopping
the a ib he alighted and read in huge letters;
"R in on an Oretown Bank Alleged Ex
tensa -e Robbery by Cashiers Flight of the
Supp jeed Delinquents." :
Wlen Frank, accompanied by the police
man, dashed up in a cab to the bank doors,
be sa v groups of idlers loitering on the op
posite side of the way, and two streams of
peopl one entering and one leaving the
build ng. He went in by the private door,
and on getting inside the counter found the
space allotted to the publio filled to its ut
most extent The partners sat in a private
office at oue end of the large room, from
whict they could see what passed outside.
Both looked weary and anxious.
Mr. Ebenezer sprang to his feet upon see
ing tl e young clerk, and asked quickly:
"It is all right, sir," Jackson replied. "Here
"TL ank heaven !" said the younger man, a
tear s winging to his eye; and, turning to his
brothor, he shook his band.
"Wu are saved!" he said. "This will keep
us going until to-morrow. Go out," be con
tinue.., addressing Frank, "and distribute
the m Jiiey. Do it without any fuss, just as
you wotUd haS it come from next door."
Fra ik emptied the bags ou a large tablo in
view of ail preseut, showing glittering
streams of bright gold and large bundles of
crisp uotes, neatly folded and securely tied.
"Hi if an hour more," wbisjiered one of the
clerks "and we should have beeu cleared
The sight of so much money reassured the
timid; the crowd, composed almost altogether
oT sm ill depositors, gradually melted away;
and waen at length, after vainly waiting for
further claims, Mr. Grubb ordered the doors
to be t lotted, there were still several thousands
of pounds in the bank coffers. The crisis was
past. The branches bud met all demands;
and w leu the bank doors were opened next
mornLig, several heavy cases, bearing tho
seals of the Bunk of England, were being un
packed , and Grubb's bank was saved.
It w is some hours after Frank's return that
Mr. Elienczer first referred to the cause of
"Rui borne and dress, Jackson, my boy,"
he said. "I sliall coll for you and take you
home to dinner. We want to hear your

through the kidneys for purification no
less than 2500 times every twenty four
hours. If the kidneys be diseased the
impurities of the blood containing the
worn-o.it tissues, and deleterious acids
are not drawn out or excreted as nature
intended, but continually pass and repass
through every fiber of the system, carry

Positively the most economical soap to use for the toilet is the
Ivory Soap. The cakes are so large that you reallv get twenty
cents worth of soap for a dime.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the
'Ivory';" they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remark
able qualities of the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it.
