turned westward as she reached the
corner of the square, and walked along
that business street with shining eyes.
In front of the First National bank she
paused, but after a few seconds she
passed by. On the opposite corner was
another bank. When she reached it,
she walked in without pausing, and the
massive door swung behind her.
The four older girls were at the
table when Connie came home. She
exhaled quiet satisfaction from every
pore. Prudence glanced at her once,
and then looked away again. "She has
reconciled herself," she thought. Din
ner was half over before' Constance
burst her bomb.
"Are you going to be busy this after
noon, Prudence?" she asked quietly.
"We are going to sew a little," said
"I wanted you to go downtown with
Inc after school."
"Well. perhaps I can do that. Fairy
will be able to finish the coat alone."
"You needn't finish the coat-I can't

"Will five dollars be enough?" in
quired Connie, and she placed a crisp
new bill beside her plate. The twins
gasped! They gazed at Connie with
new respect. They were just wishing
they could handle five-dollar bills so
"Will you loan 1me twenty dollars un

But Prudence asked, "Where did you
get this snoney, Connie?"
"I borrowed it-from the bank," Con

"What in. tile world?' shte began,
gazing out into the room, half-lighted

Lar'k shivering beside her bed(.

"There's a burglar in our room I"

"You've been dreaming," said Fairy,
lying down again.
"We don't generally dream the same
thing at the same minute," said Car~ol
stormily. "I tell you lie's in there."
"And you two great big girls came
off and left poor little Connie in there
alone with a burglar, did you? Well,
you are nice ones, I must say."
And Prudence leaped out of bed and
started for the door, followed by Fairy,
with the twins creeping fearfully along
in the rear.
"She was asleep," muttered Carol.
"We didn't want to scare her," added
Prudence was careful to turn the
switch by the door, so that the room
was in full light before she entered.
The closet door was wide open. Con
nie was soundly sleeping. There was
no one else in the room.
"You see?" said Prudence sternly.
"I'll bet lie took our ruby rings," de
clared Lark, and the twins an Fairy
ran to the dresser to look.
But a sickening realization had come
home to Prudence. In the lower hall,
under the staircase, was a small dark
closet which they called the dungeon.
The dungeon door was big and solid,
and was equipped with a heavy catch
lock. In this dungeon, Prudence kept
the family silverware, and all the
money she had on hand, as it could
there be safely locked dway. But more
often than not, Prudence forgot to lock
Mr. Starr had gone to BurlingtonI
that morning to attend special revival
services for three (lays, and Prudence
had fifty whole dollars in the house,

And the dungeon was not locked. With
out a word, she slipped softly out of
the room, ran down the stairs, making
never a sound in her bare feet, and
saw, somewhat to her surprise, that
the dungeon door was open. Quickly
she flung it shut, pushed the tiny key
that moved the "catch," and was rush
iln up the stairs again with never a
pause for breath.
A strange sight met her eyes in the
twiis' room. ''he twins themselves
were in each other's arms, sobbing bit
terly. Fairy was still looking hurried
ly through the dresser drawers.
"They are gone," wailed Carol, "our

"Nonsense," cried Prue with nervous
anger, "you've left them in the bath
room, or on the kitchen shelves.
You're always leaving them somewhere
over the place. Come on, and we'll
search the house Just to convince you."
"No, no," shrieked the twins. "Let's
lock the door and get under the bed."
The rings were really valuable.
Their grandmother, their mother's
mother, whom they had never seen,
had (i viddl her "real jewelry" between
her two daughters. And the mother of

But inside the door of daddy's room,
with the younger girls clinging to her,
and Fairy looking odd and disturbed,
Prudence stopped abruptly and stared
about the room curiously.
"Fairy, didn't father leave his watch
hanging on that nail by' tl}e table?
Seems to me I saw it there this morn
ing. I remember thinking I would
tense him for being forgetful."
And the ,watch was not there.
"I think it was Sunday he left it,"
answered Fairy in a low voice. "I re

Prudence looked unde!r the bed, and
in the closet, but their father's room
was empty: Should they go farther?
For. a moment, the girls stood looking
at one another questioningly. Then
they heard a loud thud downstairs, as
of someone pounding on a door. There
was no longer any dottbt. Someone
was in the house l Connie and the
twins sereamed again and clung to
Prudence frantically. And Fairy said,
"I think we'd better lock the door and
stay right here until morning, Prue."
But Prudence faced them stubborn
ly. "If you think I'm going to let any
one steal that fifty dollars, you are
mistaken. Fifty dollars does not come
often enough for that, I can tell you."
"It's probably stolen already," ob
"Well, if it is, we'll find out who did
it, and have them arrested. I'm going
down to telephone to the police. You
girls must lock the door after me, and
stay right here,"
The little ones screamed again, and
Fairy .aid: "Don't be silly, Prue, if
you go I'm going with you, of course.
We'll leave the kiddies here and they
can lock the door. They'll be perfectly
safe in here."
