Poor cat, suppose you had Now I am not going to suppose any thing about the cat. It never would have occurred if Maria had iicen allowed to re main here and attend to these duties, which are in her line, and are not in mine." Now, Mortimer, I should think you would be ashamed to make a remark like that. It i* a pity if you cannot do the few little IhiugH that ask of you at uncli an awlul time as this, when our child "There, there, 1 will do anything you want.

It waa a medicine which made a child more or less lively so my wile made use of its waking interval to strip it and greaae it all over with the goose-oil. 1 was soon asleep once more, but once more I lntd to get up. Mortimer, I feel a draft. I feel it dis tinctly. There is nothing so bad for this disease as a drail. l'lease move the crib iu front of the lire." I did it, and collided with the rug again, which 1 threw into the fire. Mrs. McVVill iauik Sprang out of bed and resrtied it, and we had noint! words. 1 had nuother trilling interval of sleep, uud theu got up, by request, and constructed a tlax-sued poultice. This was placed, upon tiis child'* breast aud left there to do its heal ing weak. A wood tire is not a )ermanent thing. I £ot up every twenty miuues and re newed ours, uud this gave Mrs. Mc Wil li tiiu.i an opportunity to shorten the times of giving the medicines by ten minutes, which was a great salistaction to her. Now aud theu, between times, I reorganized the flaxseed poultices, and applied sinapisms uud other blisters where uno etipied places could be found UJKMI the child. Well, toward morning the wood gave out, and my wife wanted me to go down cellar and get some more. I said: My dear, it U a laborious job, and tbe child must be nearly warm enough, with her extra clothing. Now, mightn't we put on another layer of poultices and I did not finish, because I was Inter ruptcd. I lugged wfod up from 1*1 ow for some little time, and then turned in and fell to snoring as only a man can whose strength is all gone and whose soul is worn out. Last at broad daylight I felt a grip on my shoulder that brought tne t« my senses suddenly. My wife was glaring down on me and gasping As soon as she couid command her tongue It is over! All over! The child's per spiring! What thatl we do?" Mercy, how you terrify me! don't know what we ought to do. Maybe ii we scraped her and put her in the draft again——" "O, idiot! There is not a moment to lose. Oo for the doctor. Go yourself. Tell him he mutt come, dead or alive." I dragged that poor sick man from his bed ana brought him. He looked at the child and said she waa not dyinjj. This K'HI jov unshakable to me, but it made my wife as mad as il he h»d offered a per son*) affront Then he said the child's cough was only caused by some trifling ir ritation or other in the throat At this I thought my wife had a mind to show him the Sour. Now the doctor said he would make the child cough harder and dislodge the trouble.

"Catty" seemM to Bank Robbers aad Cashiers* The Northampton bank robl«ery has led to a discussion of the duties of cashiers. One authority, whose suggestions are re ceived with at leant qualified approval by otbem, maintain* th*l th*' fchouM refuse at ail risks u surrender to robbers the mean* of opening the bank vaults. His risk, it is said, is not so great as it appears, because to murder him would only increase the guilt of the robbers, the probability of their capture and the se verity of their punishment if caught, and help them not at all to their object. If death were the only evil ihe cashier had to apprehend from his midnight visitors tnere would be much force in this sugges tion, but unhappily the bbera have other resources. Whether any cashier has ever resolutely defied their threats we do not know, but we have every reason to believe that their resources would not fail them in *uch an emergency. Even if they are not wantonly cruel they would not scruple to try the effect of torture on Ihe cashier himself, his wife or children, and the firmness which would face death without fear might well vield to such aharp persuasion. Hucii risks as that are not contemplated in the employment of bank officers. No man would willingly encounter them for a }e':uniary or any other consideration. That the experiment of torture has never yet been tried, if it has not, only proves that other means with the possibility of that in the back ground have lieeu enough. No doubt the robbers would resort to it if threats failed. They are not cruel when cruelty is ouperfluous, but they are not the men to abandon their object tor a scruple of that kind. Tint if this extremity of faithfulneas were exacted of cashiers, and it were un derstood to lie a part of their duty to bold out against all inducements of fear or tor ment, it would not much help the matter. Knowing what human nature is, all of us know well enough that not one in a hun dred would come up to these require ments. The burglars would know it, too, and the possibility that they might bit u|K»n the one man of impregnable resolu tion would not appreciably diminish the attractions of bank robl»ery. There are other means, however, quite within the reach of bank managers, which, if they chaose to employ them, would afford af mwt complete protection. Ingenuity and skill have been lavished on the onstruc tion of impenetrable walls and doors, and impregnable lock* for the bank vaultf. Two watchmen, thoroughly armed, in a building strong enough not to be entered without attracting their attention, would give almost perfect security. One watch man, perhaps, would HJ considered suf ficient but, especially if outside the building, he might be surprised and over come. Bank roblwrs will not trouble cashiers at night if they know that Ind'ore they can use the keys and the combina tion they have to break into a strong building guarded bv two men, ot even by one, alert, resolute and armed.— WomtUr (.I/a**.)

Then he went to th baggage-room and tried to get his trunk without a check. The baggageman said he couldn't give up the trunk without the check. Dobson got indignant wanted to know if be looked like a scoundrel, offered to identify himself, to give any security for the trunk.

But when be got down town it was half-past nine and be couldn't find a dray nor an expressman anywhere, so lw* hired a loafer on a corner to help him carry the trunk to the street car for a half dollar. They went down and got tbe trunk and came back just in time to see the la*t car streaking out up the track, ami the bummer said his coutract was fillet! and he wouldn't renew, and there was Dobsou after ten o'clock al night down down with a Saratoga trunk, and Mrs. Dobson at home waiting for her Sunday clothes.
