Then I felt' it stbpy an' presently there came' a shoiit telling me to wind it up again'. Very 'slowly an' carefully I did it, fearing the string Would break, an' when tnc lasi on oi u came np, mere was a piece of strong twine lied to the end of it! The twine in its turn brought the rope I had gone up by, an' then I felt that I Was sale. ' I managed somehow to put it through the, pullyi an' to haul up he plank and as soon as they had fastened the other end to the windlass belbw;they gave me the word to come down. ' J I was so numb an' 6tiff that I could not fix my self on the plank, but I managed somehow to cling to the ropes with my hands. Down, down I came, every turn of. the windlass makinjthe voic es below seem nearer, an' when I was within a few feet of the ground there were a dozen pairs of arms ready to catch me, an' a score of hands held out to me An' there was my father waiting thy Country's, thy God's, and for me," an Philip saying1: " "But for the girl he'd have been up there still. !N"ot one of us would have thought of the stocking; 'twas the brightest idea I've come across this many a day. , She has' saved his life,, Forde, and you can't refuse your consent any longer." But when I looked round for Katie, she was nowhere to be seen." She must have slipped off as soon as she saw I was safe. The young squire hurried iny father an' mc away.
