He was so goaded by his terror that h loft the shop unprotected a thing he Lac never thought to do and rau as fast as h could to Joe's lodgings. Hut he had Iff) them; he was no longer there; he had not been there for six weeks; the landlady did not know bis address, or would not give it Then James folt sick and dij-.y, and would have sat down on the doorstep and cried but for the look of the thing, besides, he re membered the unprotected shop. So h turned away sadly and Walked back, wul. understanding now that he had fallen like t fool into a trap, artfully set to fasten sus picion and guilt upon himself. V hen he returned he found the place frill of people. Mr. Kmblom was sitting in hit customary plnce, and be won smiling. Hi did not look In tho least like a man who had been robbed. He was smiling pleasantly and cheerfully. Mr. Chulker was also pres ent, a man with whom no ouo ever smiled, and Lai a Itoy, solemn and dignified, and t man an unknown man who sat in tin outer shop, and w-emed to take no Interest al all in the proceedings. Wore they come. ho asked limuelf. to arrest him on tho spoil Apparently they were not, for no out took i ho least notice if him, and they were oc u pied with something else. How could they think of anything elsef Vet Mr. Chalker, standing at the table, was making a speech which had nothing to do with tin roliUry. Horn I nm, you sec, .Mr. tumblem," lit said; "I have told you already that I Uon'l wont to do anything to worry you. I't m lie friends all round.

Lord! what is the amouut, after all, to a substantial man like yourself) A sub Ktautial man, 1 say." Ho tpoke confidently, but he glanced about tho shop with doubt ful eyes, "(iranted that it was burrowed tc get your grandson out of a scrape sup posing be promised to pay it back and hnsu't dono so; putting thu case that, it has grown and dovolopod iUolf as bills will do, and cau't help doing, and can't be stop)el: it isn't the fault of the lawyers, but the very nature of a bill to go on growing it' likea baby for growing.

Don't let. us have any bitter ness or (pjHi'rulling. Let's be friends, and tell me I mny send away the man." Mr. hinblein smiled pleasautly, but did not reply. A bill of sale it was, dated January the li'.th, just before that cursed act ol Parliament granted tho five days' notice. Here is the bailiffs man in possession. You can pay the amount, which is, with cost and sheriff poundage, three hundred and fifty-ono pounds thirteen shillings and four- penco, at once, or you may pay Ave dayi honce. Otherwise the shop, and furniture, and all, will bo solS off in seven days." Oh," James gajped, listening with be wilderment, "we can't bo going to be sold upl Emblem s to tie sold up!" "Three hundred and ufty pounds!" said Mr. Emblem. "My friend, let us rather speak of thousauds. This is truly a happy day for all of us. Hit down, Mr. Chalker my doar friend, sit dwu.

Mr. Emblem went on. "To remember tho letter, word for word, and everything! Mr. Arbuthnot has. verv likely, finished tho whole business by now. Thousands thou lands and all for Iris!" "Look here. Mr. Emblem." said the law yer, angrily. "You'll not only bo a bank- runt if you tro on like this, but you'll be fraudulent bankrupt as well. Is it honest, I want to know, to refuse to pay your just debts when you've put by thousands, as you boast you actually boast for your graua- daughterl" "Yes." said the old man. "Iris will have thousands." "I think, sir," said Lata Roy, "lhat you are uu lor an illusion. Mr. Lmblara does not possess any such savings or investments as you Imagine.

Mr. Chalker vent away otleng.h, leaving the man tho piufessional iiersui behind. Then Lulu Itoy irsuudod Mr. Emblem to go up stairs again, lie did g.vithout any apparent consciousness that Mere was man iu possession. James," said Iaio Itoy, "you have heard that your master has been robbed. You are reflecting and meditating on '.his circum stance. Another thing is that a credit r has threatened to sell off everything for debt. Most likely, everything will be sold, and tho shop closed.

"Pray, Mr. James,'' continued tiis man with grave, searching eyes whici made siuuers shake in thoir shoes, "pray, why did you run away, and where did you 10 after you opeued tho shop this morninjf You went to see Mr. Kmblom s grandion, did you noti" Yes, I did. said James.

"He is tho Father of Lies; bis end will bo confusion, (shame and confusion slall wait upon all who have hearkened unto bim or worked with him, until they npnt anl make atonement." Don't, Mister La la Roy don1 ; you frighten me," said James. "Oh, what a dreadful liar he is!" All that morning the Philosopbr sat in the booksjllcr's chair, and James in the outer shop, felt that those deep e9 were resting continually upon bim, anl knew that bit by bit his secret would be 1 ragged out of him. If be could get up and run away if a customer would coin if the dark gentleman would go up stairs if he could think of something dsa I But none of these happened, did Jaras, lit his table with tho paste b -fore him, passed a morning com pared withj which any seat my w here Li l'urgatory would have been comfortabe. 1'resently a strange feeling cane over bim' as if some invisible force wai pushing and drugging him and forcing hiu to leave hU chair, and throw himself at thi Philosopher's feet and confrtss everything. This was the mesmeric effect of those reirouchful eyes fiied steadily upon him. Ani in the door way, like some ilguro in a nigitmare a fig ure incongruous and out of pace the aa m in possession sitting, passiw and uncon cerned, with one eyo on theitreet and the other on tho shop. Up stars Mr. Emblem was sitting fast asleep; joy hail made him sleepy; and Iris was at wirk among hr pupils' lettoiM, compiling suns for the fruit erer, making a pair on cmio section for tho Cambridge man, and working out trigo nometrical equations for t:e youn c -hooi-master, and her miu I full of solemn exulta tion and glory, for sho wis a woman who was loved The other tUngs troubled h -r but little. Her grand fa tier would get back his equilibrium tif mind; the shop might b shot up, but that matta'od little. Arnol 1, and Lai a Roy, nnd hi I grandfather an hers'lf, would all live together, and she and Arnold would work. '1 no selfishness 0 youth is really ustonisliing. Nothing ex cept perha toothachi can make a gir unhappy who is loved and newly betrothed. Khe may soy w hat sho pleases, und her face may be a yard long won the spiaks of the mwtfortunes of others, but all the timo bur heart is dancing. To La!a Roy the situation presented a problem with iiisufll ient data, some 01 which would have to be guassoc'. A letter, now lost, said that a certain caw contained papers necessary to obtain an jnknown in heritance for Iris. How, then to ascertain whether anybody was expoctug or looking for a girl to claim an inhcutanco? Then there was half a coat-of-arus, and lastly there was a certain customei of uuknown name, who had bicn actpiained with Iris'i father before his marriage, to far for IrU As for the thief, Ia Roy hd no doubt at all. It was, he was quito cetaln, tho grand oosi, whose careor he had wached for some years with Interest and cix-ioity. Who else was there who would steal th papers! And who would help him, and giv him frea ac cess to the safe? Ho did not only suspect, he was certain that James ws in soma way cognizaut cf the deed. Wly elso diJ be torn so palet Why did he n h off to Joe's Jodgingsr . Why did he tit ts nhliugt At half-past twelvj I.ala loy rose. "It isyourdinmr hour,"' esaid to Jamea, and it senmc-d to the uuhaps; man as if la was saying, "1 know all. t Is your dinner hour; go, eat, refresh tb body. tVhom should luapicioo affright exopt tho guilty!" Junes put ou his bat aud neaksd ho folt tbat bo was sneaking out C tho shop. Daring bis dinner hoar Joseph himself called. It wis a onuvtsl blng to bim at aoy time; in fact, aa he was novor wont to call upon bis grandfatbei nnleso ho was in a scrape and wanted moiiy, no ono svor mode, the poor young mt : welcome, or fgd bim to come mora osmi. QBnt this morning ho walk. Bp stairs and atsjsctoerfuLso oofoly free from aay sttr fapf(cfnf pot sui, ad so oasy ro h!o mfad, without the leas touch of the old hangdog look, that Irk began to re proach r-w'f ftr UiakUW4iy of a ' ersnin. W hen he was told about tho robbery bo exprenel the greatest surprise that any on in th world could I so wicked as to rob an old man like his grandfather. Besides bin abhorrence of crime in the abstract, he affirmed that tho robbery or a sa'o was a species of villainy for which hanging was too mild much too mild a punishment. He then asked his grandfather what wero the contents of the paoket stolen, and when bo received no answer except a plessant and a cheery laugh, ho asked Iris, and learned to his sorrow that tba contents were unsnown, and could not, therefore, be Identified, even if they wore found. This, ho said, was a thousand pities, because, if they bad boon known, a reward mlEht nave been onereu. For bis own part ho would advise tho greatest caution. Nothing at an snouia oe doneat first; no step should do tasen wuicn might awaken suspicion; they should go on as if the papers wero without value. As for that, they had no real proof that there was any robbory. Iris thofrght of tailing him about the water mark of the blank pages, but regained, remaps there waa no robbery after all who was to prove what bad Ton inside the nacketl Hut if there had been paper, ana if they were valuoless except to the rightful owners, they would, perhaps, be sent back vo unlarily; or after a time, say a year or two, they might be advertised for; not as if the owners were very anxious to get tnem, and not revenlinz the nature of tho papers, but cautiously ; and presently, if they had not. been destroyed, the holders of tho Darters would answer tho advertisement, and then a moderate rewurd might, after a while, be offered, and so on, giving excel lent advice. WhiJehe wos speaking Lala Itoy entered the room in Ins noiseless man ner and took his accustomed chair. "And what do you think, sir?" said Joseph, when he had finished. "You have heard my advice, lou are not an tnglisu man, but I suppose you've got some intelli gence. Lola bowed and p-end his hands, but re plied not. i our opinion should be asked, Joseph went on, "because, you see, as the only other person, besides my grandfather and my cousin, in the housi, you might yourself be suspected. Indeed," he added, "I havo no doubt you will be suspected. When I take over the conduct of the case, which wilibemyta.sk, Isuptiose, it will, iierhaps. be my duty to suspect you." 'It uilt prrhaps he my duty tosu.tpect yon." Lata bowed again and again, spread his hands, but did not speak. In fact. Joseph now perceived that he was having the conversation wholly to himself. His grandfather sat passive, listening as one who, in a dream, hears voices but does not heed what they are saying, yet smiling politely. Iris listened, but paid no heed. She thought that a good deal of fuss was being made about papers, which, perhaps, were worth nothing. And as for her inher itance, why, as she never expected to get any, she was not going to mourn the loss of what, perhaps, was worth nothing Very well, then," said Joseph, "that's all 've got to say. I ve given you the best ad vice 1 can, and I suppose I may go. Have you lost your voice, Iris?" "JSo; but I think you had better go, Joseph. My grandfather is not able to talk this morning, and 1 dare say your advice is very gooJ, but wo have othur advisers." As for you, Mr. Ia Itoy, or w hatever you call yourself," said Joe, roughly, "I've warned you. (suspicion will certainly fall upon you, and what I say is tako care. For my own port I never did believe It niggers, and I wouldn't have one in mj houso." Lala Roy again bowed and spread bit fingers. Then Josoph went away. The door be. ween the shop and the hall was half open, and he looked in. A strange man was sitting in the outer shop, a pipe in his mouth, and James was leaning his head upon his hands. with wild and haggard eyes gazing straight bo lore him. 'Poor devil !" murmured Joseph. "I fool for bim, I do indeed. Ho hnd the key made for himself; he certainly let me use it once, but only once, and who's to prove it! And he s had the opportunity every day or using it him-ielf. That's very awkward, Foxy, my boy. If I were Foxy, I should be in a funk myselt." He strolled away, thinking that all prom- isod well Lotty most favorably and un suspiciously received in hor new character; no one knowing the contents of the packet; his grandfather gone silly ; and for himself, be had had the opportunity of advising ex- otly what he wished to be done namely, that sileuce and inaction should be observed or a space, in order to give the holders of the property a chance of offering terms, What better advice could he give I And what line of action would bo better or safer for himself I If James had known who was in the house- passage, the other side of the door, there would, I think, have been a collision of two olid bodies. But he did not know, and presently Ia Roy came back, and tho tor ture began again. James took down books and put them up agaiu; he moved about feverishly, doing nothing, with a duster in bis hand; but all the time he felt those deep accusing eyes upon him with a silence worse than a thousand questions. Ho knew he waa perfectly certain that he should bo found out. And all tho trouble for nothing! and the bailiff's man in possession, and tho safe robbed, and those eyes upon him, say ing, as plain as eyes could speak, "Thou art the man!' And Joe is tho man," said James; "not mo at all. What I did was wrong, but I waa tempted. Oh, what a precious liar and villain ho 1st And what a fool I'va been I" Tho day passed more slowly than it soomod possible for any day to pass; always tho man in tho shop; always tho deep eyes of tho sUent Hindoo upon him. It was relief when, oneo, Mr. Chalks looked in and fur vyd tho sbslveo with suspicious air, aad asked it tho old man bad by this timo lart sned to reason. i It Is ths husinosa ot him who wakes plan- dor out of other rasa's distresses - as the ackal feeds upon tho offal and tho putrid carcass to know as szactly aa ho can how his fsUow-crMtoreo are situated. For Uk reason oea a ooo doth dHHrontly lnIro, listen, pick up secrets. pt two and two to gather, and pry curiously Into everybody' affairs being nover so happy as when he gets an opportunity or going to tho rescue of a sinking man. Thus among thoso who lived in good repute about tbo lower end of the King's Road none bad a bettor namo than Mr. Emblem, and no ono waa con sidored to have mads more of his chances. And it was with joy that Mr. Chalker re ceived Joe one evening and heard from him tho dismal story, that if ho could not find fifty pounds within a few hours ho was ruined. The fifty pounds was raised on a bill bearing Mr. Kniblem's namo. When it was presented, however, and the circum stances explained, the .old gentleman, who bad at first rsfnsod to own the signature, accepted it meekly, and told no ono that bis grandson bad written it nlmsoir, and with out tho polito formality of asking permis sion to sign for him. In other words, Jo seph was a forger, and Mr. Chalker knew it, and this made him tho more astonished when Mr. Emblem did not take up tho bill but got it renewed quarter after quarter. substituting at length a bill of sale, as if he was determined to pay as much as possible for his grandson a sins. "Where is he!'' asked the money-lender angrily. " by doesn't ho come down and face his creditors! ' "Master's upstairs," said James, "and you've seen yourself, Mr. Chalker, that he is off his chump And oh, sir, who would have thought that Emblem's would havo to come to ruin!" "But there's something, James come. think there must be something.'' "Mr. Joseph said there were thousands. But bo's a terrible liar oh, Mr. Chalker, he's a terrible liar nnd villain! Why, he's oven deceived me!" "What! Has lie borrowed your moneyf-' "Worse worse. Ho you know where I conld find him, sir! ' Well, I don't know" Mr. Chalker was not in the habit of giving addresses, but in this case iierhaps Joe might bo squeezed as well as his grandfather. Unfortunately that bill with the signaturo had been destroyed. "I don t know. Perhaps it I find out I may tell you. And, James, if you can learn any thingthis rubbish won't fetch half tho money I'll make it worth your while, James, I will indeod." "I'll moke him take his share," said James to himself. "If I have to go to prison, he shall go too. They sha'n't send mo without sending hint" He looked round. The watchful eyes were gone. Tbo Hindoo had gone away noise lessly. James breathed again.
