Finally, with a heart-rending groan' be sat down on the hard, cold floor, and, went resignedly to work, trying to unravel the tangle. While thns engaged, he heard some one softly enter the bedroom, at? leaning forward, ha peeped cautiously out tlironah the halt-open door to b who the ufitirMely intruder was. To his niter eonfosion he saw the lovely nymph of the No. 2 slippers, standing composedly before his wife's toilet set, contemplaiina her . own pretty pink and White isee in the mirrcr. At any dther time, and in almost any other plight, Mr. Thomas won Id have lost himself in admiration of the sweet picture; but now he cast alter nate glances at the nnconscious damsel, and at that little pile of raiment of his that wa lying just out of bis reach, on the carpet. For some moments lie wa undecided how to act, bnt finally eonclnded to keep quiet, and wait patiently for the fair apparition to .vanUh. This, hots;, ever, she seemed in no haste to do, but turning her aUeotion to a-lovely blue silk evening dress that Henrietta had left lying on a chair, she apostrophizad it thns : "Oh, you precious beauty, you're too sweet for anything ! I'm going to try yon on." And suiting the action to tlie word, she began removing such articles ot her own apparel as would interfere with the trying-on process. Now, some idea ot poor Thomas' nervous trepidation may be gathered from tlie fact tliat, at this critical juncture, all the early teachings ot a sainted mother, and all his ample stock ot imate modesty ooeed cat at the end of his fingers, and he sat there, on the floor, like a ' crooked marble statue, staring helplessly at tlie strange, mys terious transformation going on before him. t!: He wanted to ootigh, or whistle, or J sneeze, just to let tha sweet innocent know that there was somebody "behind tlx scene, but ba couldn't utter a sound ; and so he resolved to "sit out the performance, if it lasted all nigl.t, and that too, witltont going oat fur "refreshnjenu" betweeu the acts. Finally he saw tha lovely arras slip out at sight, into the .sleeves of the bine silk dress, and hia eye would fol low the movements ot the graceful , undulating figure as it advanced, reced ed, and float eel round in front ot tlie large mirror. . , .L I ' Lf "a V- ' ' "Zounds, but isn't .aba . a beauty f mnttered oar iricarcerated benedict, ander his breath, 'I - wonder why In thunder she don't go .00 the. stage, she'd make a sensation in less ; than rr..i- .i,.. .h. , "niat" was the sound ot the front door closing, and well-known footsteps coming slowly but surely a p tha stair way, and an icy, little shiver crept down ear hero's spinal column, aa he thought of the sharp, grey eyes that, lie 'elt sure," would -not ' view the i-.i - - -'-i" . . innocent little scene as leniently as he might desire. He cauht-one glimpse tit a pale, startled little figure creeping out of the blue silk dress, . and then be crawled aoftly back into tha darkest corner ot tha wardrobe,' and eaddliog up to a pile of carpel-rags, bell his breath, and ; awaited developments.

Oh, if she should open tbe wardrobe, and discover ' them ! " Nothing on earth would ever convince her that it was aU the result of a strange com. binatioo of accidents A old perspi ra tion started at every porsi but just at that awful -moment, there came Thomas, a heavenly inspiration, and he acted upon It. leaning suddenly tor ward, ha whispered . in ' tlie lilt) maid's ear : . "Keep still, tilt she gees down stairs to- htumj, and tben-- -OKI oh I BaTglar!-M9r4r.r' shrieked the frightened damsel, as she bounced np and hamrncrod tha ward. robe door with, both fists. . Then the door was jerked open and the girl went head-first out into Abe, room. "Oh 1 Mrs. Thorn fon P' she Rasped, "tliere is a horrid" man in the ward robe !"

"If there is a man in tbe wardrobe I'll interview him first, and attend to you afterwards" . ; The next minute seme long fingers twined tliemselves-in Thomas scalp. lock, and drew him remorsely out into the light, where his startled state of dis habille was thrown into strong relief "Oh, my goodness gracious !" cried the blushing caue "of all the trouble, as site struggled intolier dry goods and fflnde tat th door . ; Thomas raised his eyes beseechingly , to his Henrietta, but he might as well have appealed to one of the everlasting icebergs of the polfff regions. 1 "Oh, Henrietta, just let me explain! he implored; but the awful grey eyes tTararfixed him with, one, BeveMevbe forgotten glance. Henrietta turned and sailed majestica'ly out of the room. and poor Thomas, the innocent victim ef circumstantial evidence wae left alone. He hat been alone ever since, and as he wanders, aimlessly and ..hopelessly about the world, he shudders and grows pale, if, by any aov-ident, his eyes encounter the door of a dark wardrobe, or a pair ot number two slippers.
