Good StorioB of Thla Bold Bobber of Yorkshire, Erin;. ,Tha UoasemaUl Who Stopped at Bis .' Houae Orer Nlcht for Hsfety The Til ing Tailor"! Experience with Mystcrloue llurglara. Nearly a century ago t.ho Inhabitant o tho East Rldlnir of Yorkshire trere in oonsUnt drpad of tho attack of Snow don DunhlU, the highwayman and buru lar, and his lawless aasoolates. DunhlU lived in a thatched cottajro on the road- aide, near to Holme-on-hpaldin? Moor, and had oonfoderaUs in nearly all the market town and principal Tillage in the riding-. He and many of hla aaso .elates lived entirely on tbe proceeds of tliolr depredations. Farmers dared not to return home from the markets exoept in companies, and well armed for pro tection. Dunhill, his wife, his daugh ters and their husbands were all trans ported for their robberies. It was the 83d of November. As the dock struck twelve at noon the twelve months' servitude of both male and fe male agricultural servants terminated, llary Iinmbleton, who had been house maid at It von ford Grange, had already packed op her "klst," and send It off to the old house at home" by Reuben 81owoome, the carrier, whose heavy wajon performed a dlntnnce of fully tiro and a half miles per hour. Coaches were then unknown in the neighbor Jiood, and the carrier oame only once a week. Having paid hasty visits to her friends In the village, she bade "good bye" to her master and mistress, and axartod c ft on her homeward Journey, a dlfltanoeof sixteen miles. Her year's sages, eight bright guineas in gold, she bad carefully wrapped up In a piece of brown paper. Purses were then un known, except to the aristocracy. Scarcely half of her Journey was ac complished when the blood-red sun be gan to dip beneath the Western horizon and speedily sank. A deep orange glow overspread the Western sky, which gradually ohanged to the gray twilight, succeeded by the approaching gloom of moonless November night She had eard of the many roblieries and burg laries committed by the during Snow don DunhlU and his fearhvM gang who in Tested the neighborhood. She felt in her pocket. The precious guineas were safe. Tbe deepening gloom oonvlnoed hor ithat midnight darkncM would overtake lor while still several miles from home. Almost paralyzed with fear she slack ened ber pace, every sound In the dis tance conjuring up the horrifying pict ure of a highwayman rushing from be tlnd some hawthorn buah and demand ing ber money. She dared not go f&rvhor, and resolved to ask for a night's lodging a tho bouse she came to. A fow hundred yards more brought ber tca low, thatched cottage on the road side. She knocked at the door. It was opened by a woman who Invited ber in. Tho cheerful aspeet of the interior of Uvo cottage, like a tnaglo spell, dissi pated all ber fears. Highway robbers ralght attack their victims, as no doubt diyty would aba was now safe. A bright, biasing fire lit up the well-furnished apartment. Two large dogs lay basking on the hearth. A middle-aged man sat smoking bis pipe in the Ingle of the old wide-open fire-place. The laughters, four young girls, were busy with the household work. Mary told them ber whole story; where she had been 11 ring; that she had just got ber wages, eight guineas; that she was walking borne; that she was be nighted, and afraid of being robbed by Highwaymen, and that she hsd resolved Dot to further risk the losing of ber money. They listened attentively to ber story, and the man assured ber that ibe was welcome and would be perfectly nafe under bis roof, for which she thanked him. Tbe evening was spent in discussing tbe gossip of the neighborhood; Mary, probably through the horrible dread which bad seized ber on tbe road, fre juontly reforring to the many robberies committed by the highwaymen, partic ularly naming Bnowdon Dunhill, who was a terror to tbe whole of the East Riding. Mary's remarks on this subject saused a smile to light op the counten ance of ber host, while the women looked on In silence. A substantial supper was provided, (bowing that tbe host was In much bet ter circumstances than the generality fbf the errloulturel laborers of the neighborhood; after which they all re-1 aired to rest, Mary feeling grateful for , Ebe kindness of her host and hostess In proeeoUng her from tbe danger of tbe reed. . Morning dawned. When Mary oame Kwn-steirs she beheld a hrtA fast-table tfc a spread equal to that ? many of Ike) farm-houses. She was told to make a hearty breakfast, as the had (till tnaay mile to walk. Baring done so, ft askedi "TfhM have) I to payT Ber Rioet, with a pleesent smile, replied: I Wothrng, my Leas. , Tben eae tU thy i friends that tho was 'flatd of being i rol.bed, so thou slept ell night at fiaew ;doit nnnblH'."-! Bee was the fact. , . Netherton is ono of the Inrtmst vil lages of tho East Hiding of Yorkshire, boasting of over a thousand Inhabitant. Unlike mnny others,, it has four roads which are dignified with tho name of street or gate Main street, Beck street, Church street and Nothorgate. Down one of these narrow stroets or lanes, In a low, lonp-fronted thatched eottage, fuUjr two hundred yards from the nearest bouse, resided old John Smith, the village tailor. John bad made suits for the fathers and grand fathers of the then present generation. Though John's out was not very stylish, his services were in constant requisi tion. The greater part of bis work was done at the houses of his employers; bis remuneration being Is. 6d. per dry and his food. On this scanty pittance John had brought up a largo family respecta bly; but they bad all got married, left' their paternal borne, and were busily engaged In the great battle of life. Notwithstanding the poor remunera tion for his services, snd the expense of bringing up his family, John had man aged to save over forty pounds. This wss about the beginning of the present century, when so many banks were fall ing, and fow were considered safe. John therefore thought the wiser plan was to be his o banker though he would lose the interest be would secure the principal. smith's treasured savings caused him many anxious hours. In the village he heard the reports of the daring highway robberies and burglaries of Dunhill and his droaded gang. A suspicious ohsrso- ter, singularly misnamed Samuel Good man, who resided In the Tillage and seldom did any work, was believed to be one of tbe fraternity. This man was treated with a sort of cool respect, no one venturing to offend blm through a fesr of the consequences. Smith would frequently lie awake for hours, devising plsns of defense should bis dwelling be attacked. For this purpose be purchased a gun and a plentiful supply of ammuni tion One dark night, shortly after Christ mas, lying awake, be distinctly heard heavy footsteps at his back door. He sprang out of bed, though age and in- ArmlUes had partially enfeebled his frame, with somewhat of the aotlvlty of bis youthful days. He groped about for the tinder-box there were then no lu olfor matches struok a light, lighted a candle, seized bis gun and hurried down stairs. Though the burglars in the stillness of the night might distinctly hear all John's movements, they were not in the least daunted. What was he to do? The burglurs woro evidently en deavoring to burst open the door. Skel eton keys were unknown to them. Ho Ides, the door was secured with two bolts as well as a lock, lie spoke to them, attempted to dissuade them from their winked purpose, and, finally, told thorn that he had bis gun ready loaded, and If they did not desist he would Are, which would probably be the death of ono of their number. His threats were In vain and not a word could be get In reply. Again and again did he warn them, but all to no purpose. Smith now saw that all attempts st psrley were useless. Tbe wretchos knew he had money, and they were de termined to have it. He stood behind the door, raised the gun to his shoulder, pulled the trigger, and whizzing went tlio bullet. Now oame the crisis. The thieves hsd evidently provided them1 selves with some kind of a battering' ram, and In flow the rickety old door, and tbe door-frame also, knocking poor Smith down beneath it flat on the floor. Horror of horrors! The villains would now be on him, taking vengeance for the slaughter of their dead comrade. In an agony of despair Smith now cried out: 'Oh! take my money; but for God's sake spare my life!" He lay on the floor, with tbe door pressing besvily upon blm, anxiously dreading the mur derous attack, as there were no means of preventing It De felt certain that they would avenge the death of one of their number. Gasping for breath, his hair standing on end, and his heart throbbing so violently that he could hear every beat, be awaited the dreaded attack. He lay for some time in an agony of despair, hut no one oame near. He peeped from nnder the fallen door, but all was still as the grave, save the vlolont boatings of bis own heart. This was mysterious. He could only aooount for It by conjecturing that they bad gone to convey their slaughtered com panion to a place of security perhsps to bury htm. Minute after minute and hour after hour passed away, but the burglars never again put in an appearance. Poor Smith sat shivering In the oold, the east wind coming In gusts at the open door wuy. He dared not to venture out, fear ing that tbe burglars might still be lark ing In tbe neighborhood. The long and horrible night at longth came to an end, and morning dawned without any further adventure. Smith now vontured to the village and gave a full account of the burglarious attack. The news spread like wildfire. Men gathered at the corners of the streets, and women gossiped from house to house to discuss the matter; and many, with bated breath and a knowing shake of tbe head, In a low tone, as if revoallng a profound secret, aald: "Sam Goodman and bis crew." Hours were spent in Idle oonjeoture, every gossip being anx ious to propound some new suggestion. After the matter had been fully dis cussed, and evory suspicious character beside Ham Goodman bad been named, Bob Johnson required bis horse, as he had to fetch a load of coals from the msrkot town. To his horror he found that his horse wss lying In the field. with a bullet wound in bis hind quar ters. Johnson's field waa behind Smith's garden, at the back of hi house. The faotprlnt of the horse were traced to and fro, across Smith' gardon. It had evidently stepped over the ill-kept fence, walked up to Smith' door, and persisted la rubbing It flank against it, la spite of poor Smith's remonstrances and threats; but the ballet waa too muoh for hi feelings, so he up with bis hind legs, smashing la the door, knocking poor Smith beneath It, and leaving two orescent-shaped Indentations as wit nesses of tbe fact Thomas Holder, la TeM Mercury.
