?i v0n K9?*' Aunt observed a
fmall boy of five and a half years, in an English
village, who was stioking at hi> figures
during an arithmetical examination?"I don't

-"J1'' . Dickey, remarked his beloved aunt
"inning sardonically. '
Ay, there's something in that," replied
the youth, unconscious of her sarcasm; "one
sees what one is driving at there, all along."
' Nevertheless, everything has its use,' persisted
the old lady, who was a very Minerva
for aphonsms, and like that heathen celebrity,
kept a bird, which, however, was not an owl
but a parrot. "Xo one can tell what immense
advantages may flow from the acquisition"
"From the what?" interrupted the rude
lad, who was of an inquiring rather than a
reverent disposition.
" From learning the least things, my dear "
" Ah. observed the boy, "I daresay; there's
the alphabet now, for instance, ain't there?
?V ho ever first hit on that, I wonder, to teach
a fellow to read?"
Ay, an i there's the deaf and dumb alphabet,
too, Dickey, which teaches people to talk
without words." v
" And were you ever deaf and dumb, Aunt
'reorgey? 0 my, what a funny g?>!"
"It you don't use these very strange words,
child?and where you pick them up is, I am
sure, quite a marvel to me?I'll tell you a story
of how Aunt Georgey herself once saved her
hie, entirely through having learned the deaf
and dumb alphabet; shall I
" Instead of the lesson. Aunt Georgey 7 O
yes, I should like it betUr than pie "
" There were two little boys. Dickey, and
one of them not very much older than you
who used to come and stay with your Uncle
Frank?you never saw him, dear" child did
you ? Ah, he would have liked those bonny
blue eyes ! tostAywith Uncle Frank and me,
when we were first married; and they could
not hear nor speak. Dickey "
Co ildn't they eat neither, Aunt Georgey
nor drink, nor nothing ?"
'0 yes; they were only deaf and dumb; but
that is a very dreadful misfortune indeed my
child, of itself. They could not talk except
with their fingers so?only ever so much
quicker.
-That ain't talking: that cat's cradle, Aunt
Georgey !"
\No. it isn t;^ It s speech, though there are
no words. I said then?Dickey, don't interrupt
your Aunt with foolish observations.' "
"I didn't hear you, then, ' replied Dickey.
"Perhaps not, my doar, but nevertheless I
did say it, so don t. \our Uncle Frank and I
learned this foreign alphabet on purpose, that
we might understand what these two poor lads
had to say. They were far quicker, far clever
than you. Dick; they could read and write.
and draw and lew, and do many other
things which you would make but a very bad
hand at."
Could they do the multiplication table,
Aunt Georgey ? '
-Yes, child."
-Could ty^y play at.'Tit. tat, toe,' Aunt
Georgey ?
Yes; and at draughts, and backgammon,
and choss. and at fox and geese, as well as any
boys. They could almost see what he said
'bou-h they could not hear, with such quick
oiger eves did they watch every movement of
<;ur hps. \\ e aoon, however, got to tulk as
easily with oar fingers as our tongues; and
sometimes, when the lads were not with us.

manner when we were alone, for practice.
' it happened on one occasion that he had to
go up to London on important business; he was
to have gone by an afternoon train, but something
delayed him. so that he was not able to
cave before the night-express. I was not in
very good health, and retired to my bed-room
-1 bout two hour? before his departure; he promised
however, to come up and wish mo goodbye
before he etarted, which would be between
welve and one o'clock in the morning. The
matter which called him awav was connected
with the bank here, which* had just been
ourned down; and my husband, it seems,

there cried he again, in a terrible sort of
whisper.
" It's all there,'' replied I, although I knew
nothing about it; "all except fiftecn-and-sixpenoe
in my purse on the dressing-table yonder.
There's a silver mustard-pot besides in
the pantry, and a couple of candlesticks in the
study, only they are plated, for I would not
deceive you. sir, upon any account."
" You had better not," observed the burglar
grimly, "or it will be all the worse for you."
Ho produced a key like that my husband used,
and approached the iron safe; but as he did so,
his guilty ear caught a footstep upon the stairoase.
" Who's that?" cried he.
"My husband, sir," returned I; "but, pray,
don't hurt him; pray."
" Is he not gone to town, then?" cried the
ruffian, with an oath of disappointment.
1 " He is going at twelve e'clock," replied I;
"he is indeed.
" If you tell him," said the burglar, hoarsely;
"if you breathe but one word of my presence
here, it will be the death-doom cf you both;''
he had slipped into the alcovo, and drawn back
the bed to its place, in an instant. My hus,
band entered immediately afterwards, and
even while he was in tlie room, I heard the
awful threat repeated once again through the
thick curtain behind inc?' If you do but
whisper it, woman, I will kill you where you
lie. Will you swear not to tell him ?"
" I will, ' said T, solemnly; "I promise not
to open my lips about the matter.''
Your Lncle Frank leaned over the pillow to
kiss me, and observed how terrified I looked.
" You have been frightening younV.f about
robbers again, I suppose, you .-illy child."
" Not I, Frank, returned I, as cheerfully as
I could; " I have only a little headache;" but
I said with fingors, so that he could plainly
read it in the firelight?"jFo/- God's sale,
hush: there is a man behind the bed-head
"\our Uncle Frank was as bold as a lion, and
had norves like iron, although he was so tender-hearted
and kind. He only answered:
"Where is your salvolatile, dearest?" and
went to the mantel-piece to get it. I thought
he could not have understood me, he spoke
with such coolnoss and unooucern. until I saw
his finger? reply as he took up the bottle: 'All
nj?ht; don't be afraid V And then I was not
afraid, Dick, or at least not so much; for I
knew that I should not bo loft one instant in
that room alone; and I felt that my Frank was
a match for any two men in such a cause. Only
he has no weapon. lJIe has a life-preserver
(pistol,) said I with my fingers.
"Your fire is getting rather low, (Jeorgey,''
observed he as he tojk up tl e poker. (Ah, he
had a weapon then!) "I must leave you a good
blaze to comfort you before I go." He poked
the fire, and lett tho poker in, but without
ever taking his eye off me and tho bed head.
"I will just ring the bell, and tee whether
Thomas has got the portmanteau ready."
"Mary," continued he to tho maid that answered
the bell, "send Thomas up." Then,
when she had gone upon that errand: "Jly
Jove! I never gave him that key; where is it.
(Jeorgey ? I have not a minute to lose ; if it is
in vour dressing-case with the rest there. I
shall be an age in looking for it. Might I ask
you to get out of bed for an instant, and show
ino which it is ?" He said with his fingers,
" ju-Mp!" and I jumped you may be sure.
Dickey, quickly enough, and was inside the
dressing-room, and with the door locked, in
half a second.
'|Come in, Thomas," said your uncle; "come
in;" for Thomas was modestly hesitating at the
chamber door ; "there's some blackguard got
into the house and behind my bed there; if he
makes tho least resistance, I'll kill him with
this hot poker."
"At these words the bed was pushed slowly
outwards, and the burglar, without his crape
mask, and with a face as pale as ashes, emerged
from his hiding-place. Your Uncle Frank
knew him at once as having been a bank messenger,
who had been turned out of his situation
since the fire, upon suspicion of dishonesty.
"O, sir. have pity upon me." cried he; "I'm
an unlucky dog. If it bad not been for a
sneete, I should have had ten thousand pounds
in my pocket by this time!"
"Oh, you came after that, did you?" said my
husband coolly. "Well, please to give up that
life-preserver which you havo in your pocket,
betore we have any more conversation.'
"And did your lady tell you that too? 'cried
the villain, in accents of astonishment, as he
delivered up the weapon to the man-servant;
"and yet I stood by her yonder, and never
heard her utter a syllable "
"I never spoke a word," cried I through the
dressing-room keyhole, for I did not wish the
man to think that I had broken my oath; nor,
to say the truth,was I anxious to make a doadly
enemy of him, in case he should be ever at
1 irge again.
'^Then it's a judgment on me," exclaimed the
miserable wretch; "and it's no good for me to
fight againt it."
"It's not the least good," replied your Uncle
Frank decisively; "and we will go to the police
office at once "
"So off the burglar went in their custody,
leaving poor Aunt Georgey safe and sound after
all. And now, don't you think there may be
some uso in learning everything, even so small
a thing as the deaf and dumb alphabet, Dickey?"
"Sometimes," replied the small boy, cautiously,
not wishing to commit himself to the
general question.
"It actually saved my life, you see," continued
the old lady; " and I didn't break my
promise, either, did I,Dickey? I said I wouldn't
speak a word, and I didn't; for what I did was
what I call speech without words."
"Oh," replied the small boy, cunningly,
"that's what you call it, is it' Now. should
you like to know what I call it?"
"Yes, you funny child, I should," replied his
aunt, admiringly.
"Well, Aunt Georgey," said the youthful
moralist, as he slipped off Minerva's lap with a
wicked laugh,' "/ should call it acting a fib
without telling one; and a precious bie fib
too." 6
A Fkakful Calculation.? In his work on
unfulfilled prophecy. Mr. Labaugh advances the
theory that the Inhabitants of the new earth are
not to be sick, and that they are to live generally
900 vears, and to increase accordingly. Some
patient mathematical genius, taking this as a
basis of calculation, estimates at the end of 1.000
years the Jews alone would number " more than
1,024,000,000.000,000,000, WO, C00.000.(XX), which
would be more than 3.410,000.000.000.000.000,000
on each square mile of the earth's surface, or
5,000,000,000,000,000,000 on each acre, and more
than 1,000 000,000,000.000 on each square yard !"
By the time Mr. Labaugh is able to read the
above tlgures, he will probably find reason to
abandon his theory. The total number of Jews
is now but from four to six millions; or less than
one, one hundred and fiftieth of the earth's inhabtant*.
If we make a corresponding estimate of
the increase of the whole nine hundred and odd
millions, the figures become still more frightful.?
