"Can I sit with you ?" -wCectainly,ir." ,w "Nice weather?". j"..'.. ! ; "Splendid, indeed." " I "Crops growing finely ?" - ' ? e- -. ..Yea qouldn't do better." ; ' ' I was bitting in' a car on a Wisconsin railroad, one day, ; years ago, : when a ood-lookinp, pleasant-spoken man came along, stopped at my seat, and the above conversation look "pi ace, 'the latter part of it after I had given his part of iny sent - Now! I am regarded as a social man. I like a joke more so then than now. On entering a railroad car 1 always look ed about for a talkative man, and then I got as close to him as possible and drained him dry if the journey was long enough. And I want to state one tningemore. Left an orphan before I could realize the 8d f-vent which made me one, I got kick ed here and cuffed there, and grew up between folks, aa they scry. 1 ought to have had, at the time of which I write, a pretty' thorough' knowledge of human nature, and have been able to read evil n a man's face it he intended me evil. I ,diL hot pride myself on being oyer sharp, but tbe knocking around among strangers blight to have given any one a good experience. . Well, the niranger and I fell into an easy train of conversation as we rode to gether, and' in ten minutes I began to enjoy his company. He was a well-made fellow, finely dressed; and wore a fine watch and simon-pure diamond ring. I nrver saw a man who could talk so easy and so pleasantly.- It seemed that he had but to opes his mouth and the words fell right out ' I had traveled in the South ; so had he. I had heard the roar of the Pacific; he knew all about it. 1 bad been up in a balloon, down in a mine, been blown up. smashed np, and repaired again and again f my new friend had experienced all these things, and : was wishing for something, ot a more startling nature. We agreed on politics,' neither had any religion, and I had never met such a rail- rosd companion. Did you ever meet a man who, though stranger to vou ten minutes before, could wrest from you your secrets which you had sworn to yourself not to reveal ? Well, be was such a man. It was not long. before, he commenced asking me questions . He did not Beetn to thy to auiz or draw, me Out, but he asked mM questions in such a sly, roundabout way, that before I knew it I was giving him mv history. I was at that time just on the point of being" admitted to the bar of Wisconsin' as a student of Law 4 Law, of Brief ville, ? The firm were 'old lawyers' with a lucrative practice, and it ban been talk ed over, that in abont a month I should be the "Co " of the firm. A year be fore, a farmer named Preston, down about four miles from Grafton, died, and bis matters bad been put into tbe bands of Law A. Law for settlement.: I Preston had died rich; He had money in bank; railroad slock.mortgages, etc , and every thing was --settled up to the satisfaction of the relict and tbe fatherless. vAhenf a year before his dea'b, being pinched tor money and not wishing to sell anything at a sacrifice, Preston had erv-en a mortgage on his farm for 83,000. While the papers- rean "for one year from date, there was a verbal agree rnpnt that it should, be lifted any day that Preston desired. . A, month after, when, having the funds to clear off the paper, the 'o!d. money bags" holding it refused to discharge, wishing to secure his inter est for a year. " I 'was on my way to learn tbe date of expiration.' A - fire among my office pa pers bad destroyed tbe memoranda, and I must go down and get the date from old Grip, who ' liyed south of Grafton abont five miles.' The stranger pumped all this out .of me In about ten minutes, and yet I never once suspected he was receiving any information. am not positive," I added, ''but I am pretty sure the time is tbel3th,which would be Tuesday next," " "And... then your folks will lend down the money and discharge tbe mortgage, of course " he queried. Oh. ves; I shall most likely . bring it down,", 1 replied, and it never occurred to me bow imprudent I was. .? He turned tbe conversation into other channels, and did not once attempt to nuran me further. We cot Id Grafton at 10.50, end, to my surprise, be announced that he was to stop in town on business for a few days. I had not asked his name or avocation while he knew everything aooiit roe We went to the hotel, harl dinner, and then I secured a livery team and drove out, gettinitv through wi,b, business so that I was back to take the 3 20 express east. . My friend was on tbe porch of the hott I &b I ; drove up, carrying the earn honest, dignified face. J Welf, did you findbul 'Jijjnqut.red tn ins pleasant way. "Yes ; it was on the 13th, as I expect ed." I replied. We had lunch together, and when we shook hands and parted I had no more idea or ever meeting him again than 1 had of knowing you. In , fact he told me that he should sail for England within a week or ten days and should not return to America. . At parting he gave me his card. It was a modest piece of paste board, and bore tbe name of George Raleigh in English script Everything in the office went on as nsual, and the I3ib came at length. Law fc Law bad arranged ' with me to go down with the monev,and I looked npon it as a business of no. special import ance. "We know you are all right," remark ed . the senior partner as I was about to go; "bat I want to give you a word of warning, nevertheless. Don t take any stranger into your confidence until you have passed out the money, and look out who Us next to you." It waa something new for him to can tion me,' and I could not but wonder at it; , but in the bustle of getting aboard the train I forgot what he had said. Or dinary prudence bad induced me to place the money, which was all in bank bills and divided into three packages, under my shirt and next to my skin, where the deft hand of a pick-pocket could not reach it. , . Interested in a newspaper time flew by as the train flew past, and at length the hoarse voice of I he hr.akeman warned me that I had reached Grafton. I had leaped down and was making for the liv ery stable when I heard a familiar voice, and , looked np to see Raleigh. He was seated in a buggy and had seemingly waited forme to come In. "Don't express your surprise," he be gan as I stopped at the wheel. ' "I did intend to go away ; I changed my mind, and like this section so well that 1 am going out to-dav to look at a farm with. a view of purchasing come ride up to tbe hotel." : and while we were discussing it Mr. Raleigh dis covered that the farm he was going to see was just beyond that old Grip's. , How fortunate ! ' I could ride out with bira, see the farm, return in his company, and he was greatly pleased. - I was alsopleased. If any one bad told me as we got into the buggy that George Raleigh meant to return with my money in his pocket and my blood npon his hands I should have believed him a lunatic; and yet George Raleigh had planned to do that very thing! .It was a lovely day in June, and the cool breeze nd the sight of meadows and green groves made my heart grow larger. My .companion was very talka tive, bnt he didn't even hint at my fir rand. He talked aa far away as he could. "Oh ! excuse me 1" be exclaimed, after we had passed a mile beyond tbe village and were among the farm houses. "I should have offered you this before." He drew from his pocket a small flask of wine and handed it to me. - Now, I was temperate in regard to drinks.' In fact, I detested the sigkt and smell of anything intqxicatiog, but I had not tbe moral courage to tell him so and hand back the flask undisturbed. I feared to offend him, and so I drank perhaps three good'swallows. ' He called, my attention to the woods on tbe left as be received back the flask,'and -when I looked around again ne was just removing it irom his mouth, as if he had drank hearty. ' In about five minutes I began, to feel queer. The fence along the road Beemed to grow higher and the trees to grow lar ger; something came to my ears that the tattle of the boggy sounded a long Way off.' .". ,:' v , -I , .... .,, ... . "How strange! -Why I believe I am going,to be sick I'll exclaimed,' holding on tn tbe seat with all my might. , .'You do look strange," he 'replied with a snaky smile stealing over his face. "I shouldn't nonder if it was apoplexy.'. I did not suspect tbe game lie had played. His words were like an echo, and his face seemed twice as large as it was. My bead began to spin anq my brain to snap and crack,and I was great ly frightened. .- "You are badly off,'" he continued, looking into my face. ' "I will drive as fast as possible and get a doctor." - My tongue was so heavy that I could not reply. , I clutched the seat, shut my eyes, and he put the horse at his best pace. We met a farmer's team, and can rememhor that one of the occupants of the wagon called out to know what ailed that man. Raleigh did not reply bat urged his horse forward. About three roues from tirarton was a long stretch of forest, and this, was soon reached.. The pain in my head was not so violent, and I was so badly affected when opening my eyes. I had settled into a sort of Huiub stupor, with a brairf an benumbed that I had to say to myself: "This is a tree, that is stump," etc , before I could make sure I was not wrong Half a mile down tbe road after we struck the forest, and then Raleigh turned the horse into a blind road leading back into the woods. I could not understand what he intended. I tried to grapple with the question, but could not 8olve it. "Well, here we are !" exclaime d Ra leigh, when we bad reached a point forty rods from the main road. . He stopped the horse, got out and hitched him, and then came round to the wheel. . .-. ' .You don't feel just right, but I guess you will be better soon," , he remarked. 'Come, let me help you down." He reaohed np bis arms, arid I let go the seat and fell into tbem. It seemed to me as if I weighed a ton; but he car ried me along without an effort, and laid me down within aboqt a rod of a fence which ran along .on one aide of an old pasture Just now I began to get a lit tle better Tbe effects of the drug were wearing off, and I got a fair - suspicion that something' unusual bad , happened. Bat I was powerless to move a limb; tbe sensation was like that when your .foot goe to sleep. y,- . , . , Can you speak ? ' , inquired Raleigh, bending over me; 'because if vou ,can it will save me some trouble I want to knew-just where'you have 'stored, away that money." ' , . , r, . ,? ; . Now I began to realize my - situation. His face looked natural again, and tbe loud was off my tongue. I also felt that I could. move my fingers a little. . . , .'"fcreorKrUSaieixhare, Aou-going-ito rob me ?" I asked, finding my voice at last. . , .. "Well, some folks might call it 'rob bing,' hut we dress up the term a- Utile by calling it tbe only correct financial way of equalizing the floating currency, so that each one is provided for and no one left out." . '.; .. '- "You shan't have the money. I will die firat !". I yelled, a little.. , ( '-. "Ah, I seedidn't take quite enough," he coolly remarked. "Well, I have pro vided for this." , V,i 1 i . - He went to the buggy, procured ropes and a gag, and kneeled down beside ine. I had but Utile strength left, and he con quered me in a moment. Lying on my right side, looking toward tbe fence, he tied my banda , behind me, and then forced the gag into my mouth. " "There, now ! You see you are nice ly fixed up, and all ' because you acted like a fool, instead of a sensible young lawyer, soon to be admitted to the bar." . While he was speaking, indeed while be-was tying me, I had caught sight of the white face of a little girl looking at us from between tbe rails of tbe fence. I could see her great blue eyes, and knew that she was . frightened. - There were red stains around her - mouth and on tbe little hand resting on the rail, and I knew that she was some farmer's child searching for strawberries. I could warn her of her danger,' and I feared that she would be seen or heard. While Raleigh was tying the last knot, I wink- .ed at the little girl aa hard as I could. hoping that eh would move-away. , But sh did not go. , , y . "Well, now for the m'onpy,", said Ra leigh; and be began searching my pock els. . He went from, one to the other,' re moving all the articles;, felt down ray boot leg and then finally passed hia hand over my bosom and found the money. , "Ha: ! here it is i? he exclaimed, draw ing out tbe package.. -"! don't hardly believe that old Grip will see any of this to-day.'. .- . . v:--;:-' ; He sat down near my head, undid the package, and was cool enough to. go at it to count the money. As he commen ced the little girl waved her hand at me. My heart went throbbing, for I expect ed that she would otter a word or shout ; but she sank down from sight, and I caught a gleam of her frock as she pass ed through the grass. "You see, my young friend," remark ed Raleigh, as he drew off one of bis boots and deposited some of the bills in it, "there's nothing like transacting bu siness as it should be transacted. Some men would have shot or stabbed yon, but it's only the apprentices who do such work. . ' All the real gentlemen of our -calling do business As gentlemen should." : He drew off the other boot, and placed some "fifties" and "twenties", ia it, and then continued :--"- "I have it all planned out how to deal with you as soon as I get this money disposed of around my person. I shall lay you on your back and pour the bal ance of the wine, down your throat There' 8 enough of it to make you sleep until to-morrow night, and by that time I shall be hundreds of miles away. Ae soon aa I see the drug take effect, ! shall untie your hands and remove the gag. When yen come out of your sleep II you ever do you had better 'crawl out to the road, where you will most - likely meet some traveler soon. I want to use the horse and buggy, otherwise I would leave them for you."': - 2: . .: r How coolly he talked. He treated the matter as if it were a regular transaction in which I fully acquiesced. ' He bad me a fast prisoner, and I felt that he could do just -as he pleased.; While I was thinking I saw the little' white face ap pear between the rails again, ' but in a moment it faded away and its place was taken by tbe sunburned phiz of a farmer. He looked from me to Raleigh and back again, and I winked at him in a way which he readily understood. 'His fsce disappeared, and I felt that I should be eaved. ' : '-' ' 4No, old Grip won't get his tin to day," mused Raleigh, storing away the bills in his pockets. "You will go back to Law & Law feeling put out and cut up, but they couldn't blame you; it is not your fault at alKr True, had you minded your business on .the car and not been so free with a stranger, this would not have happened I was on my way to Milwaukee, and. had no thought of such rich pickings here.' ', I saw nothing of the farmer, Ralejgh finished his couuting. and 1 made up my mind that the farmer was afraid to in terfere, and bad run away. My heart went down as Raleigh got up,1, for I saw that he was abont to carry out his plan of further drugging roe. He turned me or. my back, sat down astride of me, and then pulled out the flask., ... ... "Now, in just about a minute . we'll be through with the business,", tie remark e8, trying to put tbe mouth of the flask between my' jaws. " , u I rolled my head to one side, aud he did not succeed. He was jamming the flask against my, feeth, when I caught the sound of a soft step, the crash of a club, and Raleigh rolled off my body. He tried to leap op, but three or four farmers struck him down, and one of the blows rendered him Senseless. Be fore he came to I was free of ropes and gas, and we had him securely bound. . Over bevond the pasture a farmer and his hands were raking hay. "Little Blue Eyes," only eight years old, had, fortu nately for me, witnessed a part of Ra leigh's proceedings.
