'I know it,' "aid I, deprecatingly. •But, my dear love, where is the sense of jumping *t a mouse, and shrinking at a spider*' reasoned Ferdinand. •I I don't know.'admitted I. 'But, , really and truly. Ferdinand, I can't belo it' H<r stood there, HO tall, and muscular, and majestic, looking down upon me with a sort of caressing pity, w» ; le 1 played with the lowest button of his : vest, feeling very small and insigtiifi ' cant indeed. •A woman should always possess within herself the reserve force neces sary to meet any especi il emepgency,' said Ferdinand. ; 'Yea,' assented I, feeoly, i suppose ; she should.' •But what would you do, Midget, in an emergency*' 'I should rail you,' responded I, promptly; or I should got under the bed.' Ferdinand looked at me with a visage of despair. 'Fanny,' said he, you are j»erfectly incorrigible" •I'm afraid I am,' sighed I. 'But you know, dear, it takes all iw>rt* of people to make a world; and I'm one of the . small fry—not a great big, courageous Hercules, like you.' And so Ferdinand left off arguing with me. He slways did when we ar rived at a certain point in the chain of logio. And be sat down to read the paper, while I crept off into the back room to sort over Berlin wools, and cry p. quiet little tear or two by myself be cause Ferdinand thought me such an inefficient mite of a thing. We lived all alone in that little, rose thatched cottage, a good mile and a half awuy from any other bouse, with a patch of primeval forest rising up in our rear, aud a lovely sylvan view of wood and valley, and rolling pasture land, in front. 1 had found it a little lonesome just at first, for Ferdinand bad married me out of a boarding-school, and it took tune for me to become accustomed to th« se grand western solitudes. But 1 loved him very dearly, and I was secretly proud of l>eing myself cull ed 'the doctor's wife,' eighteen year-old child that I was. As 1 was comparing two shades of brown zephyr, Uretcheo, the maid, knocked at the door. Would madam allow her to go home for just that afternoon* Max Denner- J lein, from her own Bavarian district, was on a visit to her brother Karl, and it would be so tine to hear from home. Would madam allow her to go, after the supper disbes were cleared away? And she would l»e sure to return in the morning before madam was up. I looked sympathetically at the girl. Is be your lover Gretchen?' said 1 Oretchen looked down, and laughed and colored. 'No madam; but—that is to «uy—' 'That is to say that he may be,' in terrupted f. 'Well, Gretclien, you may go; but 1h» sure you return to-morrow j morning in time to get the breakfast.' Uretchen protested that she would be as punctual as the dawn, and trudged away to hurry up the sup|>er-dishes. She had hardly goue, when a horse man rode up to the door. Was Doctor Blis* at home? He was wanted instantly ut the saw-mill, ten miles or so beyonl. There had been an accident, and a surgeon's skill was imperatively required, without delay. Ferdinand looked dubiously at me. •Oh, do hurry, Ferdinand!' said I, turning a little pale at the id* aof the 1 dreadful accident. 'Don't stop a min ute! The poor man may be dying!' 'But I don't like to leave you alone, Frances. The maid it gone, and —' •Oh, never mind rae, Ferdinand' You won't be gone long.' But still he hesitated 'lf the light wagon was not broken," said he, 'I would take you with me. As it is, I must go ou horseback. Now, Fauuv, mind yen lock the door, and fasten the windows well, and I shall f not be longer than I can help ' So my husband rode away, and I sat down, in the lamplight, to my worsted work. trying to feel as brave as a lion. Atter all, whst danger was there? We had no burglars in the neighbor hood that I knew of, and nothing to tempt them in the house, always excep ting that old-fashioned tea-service of solid silver, that Aunt Hetty had just j bequeathed me. It was very rich and elaborate—a grewt deal too much so for me to use in my humble style of house i keeping. But, then, it was a family relic and I fslt prou t of it in my secret heart. Danger! 1 smiled within myself at the idea; and yet a little quiver went threugh me at the hoot of au owl in the distent woods, and i caught myself counting the hours before it could be possible for Ferdinand to return. A knock at the back door, i started as if it had been the roar of a park of artillery. •How foolish you are, Fanny Bliss, i aaid 1, savagely apostrophizing myself, •to jump at a simple call for the doctor! I'm ashauied of you So I went to the door, assuming a valor which I was very far from feel ing. •Doctor in?' demanded a gruff voice. And in the starlight I eoul l percaeve i a wagon, drawn up in the road opposite our front door. •No,' I answered; 'but he will be 9 soon. •How soon: , •I don't know exactly, said I; 'but— •Oh. it don't matter'' pid the man. •It's a box for hiui, by express, frou the medical h**spital at Milwaukee—- charges paid And I'll set it inside the door, ma'am by jour leave. As I held the lamp for them to do so, I saw that it was a long and narrow box, of un pa in ted p»««n « r » sudden it flashed I .to my m.nd that it I was a subject ot dissection. I had read ! and heard of auch things lieing brought clandestinely into doctors houses, and I my heart «tood *till »t the idea A SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 26, IS7S. corpse— and alone in the house with COP' The men ha 1 left it in the hail, placed so that I could aot cloae the door opening into the fitting room. There was no ftroiifi the kitchen, and the chill ot the late autumn evening rendered one necessary; so that I found myself cut off from a retreet thither, and I could not reach the stairway that led to my own chamber without stepping directly over th* grisly package. With a shudder, I sat down before thv blaze, staring into the hot coal*, »n<i trying to divert my thoughts from the mysterious box. But all that I oouli df>would not banish the conscious ness that I was not alone. I pictured to uiynelf again and again, in a growing agony of terror, the cadaverous face be neath the strip of pine cover—the rigid limbs, the awful glare of the glassy eye«! And— At that instant, I chanced to glance up in the direction of an oval mirror that hung directly over the mantle, and as true as I live 1 saw the box-lid soft ly lifted the mere fraction of an inch! An electric thrill ran through me. I grew hot and cold in a single second, as the whole truth burst on my mind. There was no dead corpse in that box, but a living enemy. Gretchen's depart ure, my husbttnd's summon's, the silver tea service—all blended themselves to gether in my mind, and, for an instant, I felt myself at the mercy of the ruffian who lay yonder, stealthily biding his time. For a moment I sat quite still. Thea I rose quietly up, and without any ves tige of unseemly hurry, moved leisure ly across the room to a cupboard, where lay a hammer and a box of heavy sails, with which Ferdinand bad been mend ing a shelf that very afternoon; and re turning with that same slow movement, I suddenly bent above the mysterious box, and fa«tened£the insufficiently se« cured lid down with a nail afl| two or three quick, nervous blows. Nail alter nail I drove resolutely in, taking care to keep my line of wrought iron pickets close enough to the edge to bury themselves in the side board and do uo harm to any glass, china, or other article which might be packed within. At first there was a souud like a muf fled exclamation from within, and then all was silence. 'lf I have hurt him,' said I te myself, 'it serves him right. If be suffocates to death, the lons to the community will be small.' I locked aud bolted the doors with redoubled care. I dressed up an um brella in Ferdiuand's Sunday hat and coat, and set it where its blurred refec tion should cast a shadow, not unlike that of a man, on the white window blinrt. And then I stirred the fire and trimmed the lamp, and sat there keep ing horrible vigil, until Ferdinand should return. He came at last, nigh upou eleven o'clock, tired and disgusted. There had been no accident at the saw mill, be said, as he unbuttoned his coat, after leading Major around to the stable. 'I know it,' said I. 'What do you mean, Fanny v ' said he, looking quickly at me. And then 1 told him all. It proved afterward to bo a very neatly-planned 'job' Tiie gentleman in the pine box, one Pierce Standley by name, a well known border rough, was to have possessed himself of my silver after I was snug asleep, while his hopeful companions c racked the next house, where a few Government bonds were suspected to havo been concealed by an old man. He was not hurt, but only thorough ly frightened, by my determined opera tion*; as for stifling him, I need not have l>e«jn afraid of that. Ample ventilation had been secured, by gimblet-holes bored in the tide of tne be.v, while the lid had originally been t»o lightly fastened down that a very slight effort of strength on the part of its occupant could have pried it up. until ray hammer and naila set tled the business effectually. Mr Standlev was lodged in the town jail. whence, being recognized as the hero of several notorious burglaries, be was speedily promoted to State's Prison for a term of twenty years. It is needless to add that poor Oretchen came back the next daylight, tired, footsore and bitterly disappoint ed. Max Dennerlie® was still in Bavaria, and likely to remain there, for any thing Oretchen knew. 'Fanny,' said Ferdinand, lookiag ad miringly at me, 'you have proved your, self a heroine. Were you not frighten ed little one'?' •Not half as much as if a rat had jumped at me.' said I, smiling. And I don't really think that I was. But Ferdinand never alluded any mere to my lacking 'the reserve force neces sary to meet any special emergency" Don't try to do too much. A Main Street man undertook to make his wife learn'to eat with her fork, the other day. and now he wears a beelAake un der his eye.
