The fi r s t and foremost rea son for this aver s ion was that Mr. I y Lad presumed to pay marked A'.r. t his daughter Eleanor.

As he closed the door leading from the president's room the sleepy janitor awakened with a start. He eyed Shelby suspiciously. "Wa3 ye wantin' anything in there, sir?" he asked gruffly. I "So; I simply opened the. door be- ! "I am ready to risk anything, cause I heard a strange sound. Do ! myself I am not afraid,' said "Wait! his am." "They are ready to cme up. and they are ready for murder. They are watching on the outside, doubtless. Don't think of goine cut alone." The president gave him a strange look.

But one dav f h' i ipjie 1 and fell on the icy pave- :;t in front of the bank just as Shel ly v. as enining out; and he helped her i'ito t ho house, and was asked to call, vl did call. A Mtli.T strange thing was that ?i i 1 It . -r of them seemed to reorret the a.vi.l.-nt. a it would seem natural thev Shtd.by, the third time he called, ?at.f:- damaged his prospect by gtt- ti:ii; into a discussion with the Rever- ! bronson Masters iti which he mani- ! ! a t 'li Iency to spiritualism, theo- s 'J :iy a'id other occult and unovtho .1 . !p -liefs. This 1m l impression was ::!' Hi, augmented bv tho dincov- yt . it he ha I no fortune, not even ' i -ctations, an.l was dependent on l.H -.alary for a living. Tu- growing atVection of the young "!.- !'.r each other was noticed by Mr. Masters, and he immediately cou .L i!i-1 with his sister-in-law, having no ii.- i-lsewith whom to consult, and as la - been seen, hhe quite agreed with aim t h it smdi tnTeetion should be im Ue tiutely nipped in tlie bud. A .rdiugly Mr. Shelby was given t tin h rstand that Miss Masters was :i b.Jiu'-r at home to him. But Shel- h'dger was still near tho front 1 -w, iiud Miss Masters had no 'f egress or ingress except by nt door of her residence, so e -till preserved his old roputa i!i regard to locksmiths, and :'i"d after the coo 1 old fashion. Abi.-tt this time the Reverend Bron- n M itersr met a fascinating widow, M-v H.irt 0:1 Wrlance. who had lately ::ie a member of his congregation.

Shortly after this Mr. Masters an nounced to his daughter that ho would spend his vacation in Europe. "I have decided to take you with me,'' he added. Eleanor'was delighted with the pros pect, and gave her parent an ecstatic hug. "Shall you close the house, papa?" she asked. "No; Mrs. Yerlance will rent it fur nished. I consider myself particular ly fortunate to have her here to look after things," he said. Eleanor didn't agree with him, but concluded that silence in this case was wisdom. "Mr. Burrows will take a room, too, so there will be the added protection of a man in the house," added Mr. Masters. Mr. Berkeley Burrows was a nephew of Mrs. Verlauce; he had Jbeen intro duced to the Masters family by his aunt. Eleanor felt something of the same aversion for him that she did for Mrs. Yerlance; but the Reverend Masters considered him a young gen tleman of great promise. Besides-, he had large expectations," as that gen tleman phrased it, and such things are not to be looked upon as drawbacks in a son-in-law. No communication being allowed between the young man iu the front window of tho bank and the young woman next door, Mr, Jack Shelby went off on his vacation without hav ing had an opportunity to inform Miss Masters of the fact. Shortly after he left she sailed for Europe, having cast a longing glance into the front window as she entered tho carriage which was to convey her to the pier. The glance met no re sponse, and she was both piqued and grieved, but gave no sign. Mrs. Yerlance came into possession; and the bank clerk returned from his vacation. His weary eyes watching for Eleanor's flitting to and fro were greeted only with the apparition of a rather stout blonde woman handsome ly arrayed, and not disposed to look Ins way. lie concluded she was a visitor of the Masters; and that perhaps Eleanor was awav for a week or two. He knew nothing of the departure of the family for Europe. One evening about half-past fix, as he was going to dinner, he discovered that he had left in the bank two thea tre tickets, which ho wished to use that night. Ho turned back, wonder ing if he would be able to get into find them. The deaf old janitor was just finish- intr un his work: but lie had some t A. trouble in attracting his attention, th uight.watchmau not having vet come on duty. Ho Anally succeeded, am the old fellow sat down m a corner to wait for him, and dozed olF. How quiet it was! The street traffic and roll of teams had ceased, and for the first time Shelby heard the tick of the clock on the wall. He had 'never been in the bank before so late. This strange silence made him feel as though he sat with the ghost of the bustling, noisy bnsiuess place whose features he knew so well. It was some thing dreamlike aud unreal. The strangeness of it all seemed to produce a peculiar impression upon him. He felt that could he sufficient ly master the occult forces of nature, that in this great, quiet place, and so neitr her home, he might make the girl he loved feel his presence. The silence became more profound. Suddenly he heard a low. musical sound. He could not tell from whence it came. It seemed almost ing to the vault. under his feet. As he listened it be came more distinct. There was a strain very like a well-known air from "Trovatore." Next be heard a name which made his heart bc-at fa?t. "O Eleauora." sounded the soft, ! my5terious voice, instead of the S familiar words "O Leonora" in the you ever hear strange sounds about here?" he asked. "Don't hear nothin'," answered the deaf servitor, crustily, and Shelby took himself off. The next day he thought of nothing but the strange happening at the bank. He burned with curiosity to again in vestigate. After hours he went again a little later ' and found Flynn, the watchman, there. Flynn didn't seem disposed to give him much time alone for occult demonstrations. He invented a pretext for getting Flynn away. It was quiet, and he listened intently. Again he heard the low, musical sound. Then came the wailing words, low but distinct: "O Eleanora." The voice, which seemed half reproach, half entreaty, was heart-rending in its appeal. The cold drops gathered on his fore head. What did it mean? The next moment the watchmnn came in and put an end to further in vestigations. He could invent no urther pretext for remaining, and went away. v The morning after this the president 1" 1 -i gave aim an .oad 100K as ne passed hrough. Shelbv went and stared into the mirror to see if lie had omitted lis necktie, or if there was anything peculiar in his personal appearance. He saw nothing but his rather hag gard features. There was a new clerk installed near him, and this man he also caught ooking at him in a scrutinizing way. He wondered why he had suddenly jecome so suspicious of every one. Was this mystery, together with his suspense about Eleanor, driving him insane? Was she menaced by some terrible peril? If he eould only spend a night alone in the bank, what might he not discover? 1 He determined to go boldly to the president, Mr. Bortree, aud ask his permission to do 60. "What is your reason for such a strange request? asked the omcial, looking suspiciouly at him. Shelby hesitated. Could he tell this hard, cold man of facts? "You are aware, of course, that should anything happen here it would immediately be traced to you," added Mr. Bortree. Then it flasthed upon Shelby that it was suspicion ne saw in mis man s face. My intentions are the most inno cent," he said, straightening up. "I think the bank is haunted, that's all. I am fond of investigating such things." "Why, so am I," said Mr. Bortree. "I'm a member of tho Society for Fsychical Research. Spend the night in the bank if you likeonly I'm afraid you won't feel much like work the next day." That night Shelby went to the bank about ten, settled himself in two leather covered chairs, and prepared to await developments. An hour wore on during which he heard nothing. Then he was startled by a sound. It was a soft, clicking noise. It was in front. The door was opened. There were the footfalls of two men. He got up, and peered out cautiously over the high counter.. The watclunan and Mr. Bortree were coming toward him. "I told you I was interested in the occult," said the President, cheer fully. "I've come to help you Avatch." A shado of annoyance passed over Shelby's face. How could he expect any developments with this man there? Two hours passed by in silence, duriucr which the President read and smoked. 4 ' There were no ghostly manffesta- tions. Shelby was getting very sleepy, and TEE 1EERRY SIDE OF LIFE. STORIES THAT ARE TOLD BY THE FUNNY MEN OF THE PRESS. young man looking the other full Lc the face. "Then take this lantern and hold it in the window." It was an ordinary bull's eye lantern which Mr. Bortree took from under a chair, and which he had evidently hidden there. la that moment Shelby knew thai he'SadlJeen the subject of a horribW suspicion. But he quietly took th light and obeyed. After about three minutes, some one tapped on the door. The Presi dent opened it, and admitted two po licemen. Shelby spoke first. "Put a guard on that house instant ly," he said, pointing to the Masters residence. "Don't let any one leavt it. There is a tunnel from there undei the vault." "Why, a woman and two men wen1 away from there just as we came in," said. the policeman. "I thought the minister was having some company." "Quick!" cried Shelby. "It may be too late now." His brain was in a whirl. It seemed so horrible to put a guard of police about her house. Investigations revealed an empty house with the basement dug up, and forming the entrance to a tunnel un der the bank. An extract from the morning paper read: "Mrs. Ilorton Yerlance. alias Ar lington, alias Baker.is at her old tricks again. This time she nearly succeeded in carrying out one of the boldest bank robberies on record. Jake Perley, whom she had been passing off as her nephew, was her accomplice." Mr. Jack Shelby is now assistant cashier, and the wedding with Miss Eleanor Masters is to take place just after Easter. "Shelby," said the President, as he congratulated him the other day, "I won't deny that I had you shadowed. That new clerk was a special detective placed on you. To think you should only have been a crank, after all! But 3id you ever account for that straage eingincr of the 'O Eleanora'? "Oh, yes," said Shelby. "That was evidently a signal. It wouldn't excite suspicion like a whistle, you know." Dinner' Late, Etc. 5omewher in the Peril " the Study When " 'Tis alwavs morning world." Ah! by what crud fate this cU.be i twirled!
