ALLY AND MAROIA PRINDLE HAT come to the city to espend the winter and go to school. Great Aunt Sall3 Ingraham had visited them with the eon. sent of her husband, Great Uncle Judga Nathanmel Ingraham. "The educational facilities are not e.n tensive in East Liberty," Great Aunt Sally had said to her husband in her gentle fashion, to which the judge had replied in his bluff way: "Have 'em down here. Have 'em down here, and'dose 'em with fol-de-rol till they are spoiled for their station in life-that'. the way nowadays, poor or rich!" In spite of this danger, Great Aunt Sally wrote her invitation, which was promptly accoepted. Not the greatest marvel in the city to the neswomers was the abode of their august relatives. They had not been accustomed, at East Liberty, to spacious rooms, tapes. try hangings, velvet carpets, Dresden china, and a butler in white gloves to wait on table. So vast and lofty was the mansion Mar cia quaked in her bed every night of her life, being sure that Judge Ingraham's dwelling must be a shining mark for thieves, robbers, murderers, and folk of that kind. "Yon can see Great Uncle Nathaniel is aware he may be plundered' at any mo mest." she weald argue, "else why that dark 'den' opening out of his chamber, where he keeps his valuables, Aunt Sally stered her diamonds and Thomas looks up the silver every night?" This "Ien" was rather a grewsome place. [t was wiadowless, and its one door was or amented with a heavy bolt, besides a pat ent look, the secret of which no- one knew save Judge Ingraham and Thomas, the butler. The two girls had peeped into its recesses -ne day, when Aunt Sally had epened one of its seeret drawers to take out a pearl broohek and a sapphire ring, wherewith her nieces might adorn themselves for a tea party. But it Mtpria w1s a timid soul, Sally w as brave a little peroon is one need care tV see. To pacify her sister every night afte the household wae wrapped in slumbers Sally would steal down the stairs in he: toilet slippers and visit every window anc door, from the shed to the drawing room. "Nobody can get in, unless he blows u; the house with dynamite," she would re port. "Now don't sit up on your elbow an, listen for burglars, Marcia." "Dear me!" Marcia would sigh. "Ho. do you dare to go round in the dark! Even if you should not meet a fall grow. robber, but only a little two-for-a-cent rob burette, it would be enough to shatter youn nervous system for life." She told the tale of Bally's pluck at th. breakfast table one morning. "Ho, ho, ho!" roared Unele Nathaniel. "A capital watch-dogl" And when Sally's eyes flashed at the rough joke Uncle Nathaniel shouted: "Cave eanem! Cave caneml" She's fierce dognie-my niece Sallyl" "I'll. make no more excursions for yeo if you tell of me," Sally said sharply to her sister. So Marcia held he r peae, and the judge ceased his ponderous pleasantry. The two girls found themselves very snppy during the winter. Their school mates were cordial and friendly. Great Aunt Sally with her quiet sweetness, stood esa shield between her visitors and the burly judge, when he, beirg at times a vic tim to rheumatic gout, expressed himself in language "more striking than claasic." Even Sally stood in considerable awe of the crusty old gentleman, and did not feel entirely at ease even when he smiled snd offered his aid in translating Virgil or in the intricacies of geometry. But both were grateful to him; he not only paid their school bills, but, on the rast Sunday morning of every month opened a box in the "den" and handed a $10 gold piece to seah for spending money. "Kill yourselves with candy, if you choose! Girls always were and always will be fools!" were his usual remarks on these oconsious. The winter flew by. It was in March when Judge Ingraham suddenly announced that he must make his annual spring busi ness trip to New York. "And of course you go with me, madam," he said to his wife. "Leave these two Nighty-tighty girls in charge of the house. I'll trust 'em." "We'll take beautiful erre of every thing," exclaimed Marcia. "And you know, Uncle Nathaniel, you .nee called me a -- watch dog," added belly, speaking quietly, though her chooeeks Ieddened. "Ho, he, ho! So I did. Fida-is that your name, Miss? Ah-when she gets her temper up, and shows her teeth-then. Cave Canem--beware of the dog! Ho, ho, hol" So the girls were left alone with the ser cents. Fida-faithful indeed was Sally. It would have been a sharp-witted burglar who could have found an unguarded spot in the house, by day or by night. The butler made a groat show of bravery, and scared the cook out of her wits by pointing a borrowed revolver at her head. .it it was upon Sally's precautions and courage that the female portion of the bonaehold chiefly relied. "And I'm sure you will not be afeared, miss," said Minnie, the waitress, when tally rather reluctantly Granted all the servante permission to go to the ball on St. Patrick's day, the evening of March 17. Unfortunately, both Marcia and Sally had been also invited to a merry- making. "But you can go, Maroia," said Sally. 'You'd be no use anyway in guarding a astle." Bo Marcia reluctantly went her way. The groat house was empty. Sally went own collar to make sure the windows were arred; into the shed and the laundry for he same purpose. I he back door was oaked. So was the front door, though that as secured only by the Yale look, of which arcia had taken the key. Sally next went into all the chambers. he door of the "don" was bolted on the lIver and diamonds, and Sally snapped very window fastening in her uncle's nom. Then she oinme down into the ibrary. She put a fesah log on the fire: ighted the banquet lamp, and sat down oder its crimson shadU with a book. The March wind was high, and occasion Ily an outside shutter rattled. Ti.. sound f the gusts only made the library the ore cozy. Sally read on and on, until either be muse the book wal a little dull, or the soft .eo*iln of the nmapli togs Vory soothing, .he tell sound asleep In het blg rmohil:, HoW ann she atelrt she did not know, lttddeniy ahe started up, quite awake, What was the olse? nlnlly loaned for.

This being between the man agd the safe, its rays were obscured and made the burglar's body look huge tnit nroaortidn._ -sally'e heart beat in great throbe. But her brain waee clear. Rhe elided over tih floor. "Steady! quiet!" she maid to herself out the man was too intent on the safe's look to have heard a sound. She stretched out her hand. She graened the heavy door of the "deo." One push-one eoupreme effort, .The door closed with a baag. The great iron bolt clanged. "I've rot you now, you villain!" cried Bally Prindle. She burst into nervous tears, but they lasted only a r eoond. Ler wrath blazed. Lhe put her lips to the hey-hole. "Oh, you so undrel! Oh, you abominable rascoal!" she called. The man inside was shouting back, but Sally, wild with excitement, paid no head. "You needn't expostulatel" she went on, at the top of her voice through the keyhole. "You're caught-a rat in a trap, you abom inable pereon! There you'll stay till the police come aed escort youto a-dungeon." lhe walked rapidly' up and down the room, really made wild with excitement. "Oh, spare your breath!" she retorted, as sounds of fury reached her through the iton door. "You can kick your legs off and 'twill do no good. I'll Leave you now to meditate on the aituation, you vicious crea teral" bhb turned the key in the chamber door, to make assurance doubly sure, and re treated to the library. The hall clock rane out 10. The click o? Marcia's key ,ounded in the Yale lock. Ihoold Sally tell her sister that upstairs was no '"robborette," but a full-fledged, not to ay aigantie burglar? Marecl would faint with terror. No, Sally would keep her own eouneel. "Sit by the fire, Mart," said she. "We'! wait for the servants to some in. Hay Would Thomas never come? Half pse. I0 o'clock. Really it was nnpardonablt for her uncle's people to be so late, ever if St. Patrick's day did come but once a year. "What makes your cheeks so red. Sally?' asked the unconscious companion of he: vigil. "Andyour eyes shine like gold dol. lars." "Nonsense" said Bally. "Ah!' she ex claimed, "there's the back door bell." She fldewii'to the kitchen. She grasped Thomas by the arm and dragged that -s. toelshed worthy into the pantry. There eh6'oured forfh her tale. "Go for a policeman-for two policemer just as fast * o yo* can run," she ordered. "And don't tell the maids, or I shall have them on my hands, too." But whin the valiant Thpmas reappeared, and followipk close on his heels stalked Of' dcers Burk. and Conley, there was a hub bub indeed. "A robber in the house!" "A regular burglar!" evekybody screamed at once. But every ne, even Marcia, followed up the stails. ".iSt alone in the library? No, ma'arm!" said the trembling Marcia, holding tight to Sally's skirts. The twb policemen, with their billies, plaied themselves in front of the "den." Thomas, with his revolver, stood just be hind. The ether servants cowered near, "Let me draw the bolt," said really. "I'd really like to." Sally's hand was on the bolt. It gr6aned as shedreiT bhck. She tumrned the handle and flung wide the door. "Come out, miscreant!" she said. Upon which exhortation, in the face of policemen, before the eyes of relatives, and of servants, came out from the stiflinc prison, wherein hie had been confined for more than two hours, the master of the ousRe, Great Unole Judge Nathaniel In graham, six feet three inches tall, broad in proportiop, his face as scarleot as a flamingo, his temper that of a Spanish hull. S'Villain,' am I?" he thundered. "'Ras col?' 'creature?' 'miscreant?' 'person! hey?" Then the sight of the blanched faces be fore him, a vision of the now pallid Sally and the two blank policelume, brought thi angry victim to his senses. Hie burst mt esale of laughter. But Sally. regaining her ground, do mended: "How did you ever get into this hoast Uncle Ingraham?" "Jiy the front door, of course, hussey Did you suppose I preferred the chimney And there you sat by the fire, as sound.a one tof the seven sleepers, you vixen. came home for soms papers which I ha, left behind. I'm going back-G eat Jupi tar! I shall mias the midnuigt express Harnase! Chain-lightning, Thomas-don' stand there gaping like an idiot. Your eer vices are no longer required, Measrs Police. Go to bed, everybody, and leasi me by niyIlf!" "No chance of our ever being asked tc make another visit to this house," re marked Sally grimly, when she and Maroie ,iound themealves alone. But if J udge Ing.aham was het and hasty he was urofoundly just. Not only did he roward Burke and Con ley fo: their "valuable services," not only did Thomas receive a $1 bill for his in. tended valor, but invitations were extended to Sally and Marcia on their departure home to come to their great uncle's to speod the next July. t]l,wae not Great Aunt Ballvbut the judgR bisreclf who dispatched a reminder of the invitation early in June. "Come!" hle wrote peremptorily. How did he know that the Fourth of July was Sally's birthday? That I cannot tell. Baut he was aware of the fact.

In the case there was a fine gold watch. lallv looked the gift over in delight. And though she cried out euddenly, "Oh, that is too bad" when she aspied on the watch's back the enameled head of a ferociouf mmastiff; while underneath ran the legend, "Cave Canem!" she forgave her imiling relative his jest. opyright ' MARY SlELDEN MUCOFF.

Remarkable Experience of John Turk, a Pio neer of Helena. 89 Doses Taken at Once Did Not Kill, but Succeeded in Curing Him. John Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 80 doses of a so-called "San Franoisco Qanek's Medicine," at once, and was not killed, as promised by lival doctors. In tSeptem her, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart, visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co., Li.bi e World Dispensary, San F'raneiseo and Butte City, whe halnd offtles fur two weeks at the Merchants Hotel, Helena. Mr. Turk had suffered for years with Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects of merenu ial Salivatioe. He had four of the best physicians in Montana attend him, and they failed to relieve him. Dr. Stad dart examined him, sent his prescriptions to Liehig Dispensary, ban Franciece, to be prepared. Atter ,Dr. Stoddart left, Mr. Turk met the local doctors and told them what he had done. They laughed at him, and said "that Sun Francisco quack would kill him." He was so frightened that when the medicine from San Francisco came he put the bottle upon a shelf at his house, 707 Park sateet, Helena, and it stood neg lected until December (nearly three moths) while Mr. T'lurk suffered day and night, had not slept half an hoar at a time in years.
