And nhe walked the floor, in her
helpless rage.
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
"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.
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

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.

strain very like a well-known air from

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
My intentions are the most inno

think the bank is haunted, that's all.
I am fond of investigating such
"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
Two hours passed by in silence,
duriucr which the President read and
smoked. 4 '
There were no ghostly manffesta-
Shelby was getting very sleepy, and
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
"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."

A Predatory Crow,
For several weeks the residents of a

to account for the disappearance o
small articles, consisting of jewelry,
penholders, napkin rings and othei
trinkets, and the failure to apprehend
the thief. On Friday, however, tht
offender was accidentally caught it
the act. A gentleman who had beer
acquainted with the fact that the thing!
had been stolen was talking to
friend, when his attention was attract
ed to a noise in his office, and on going
to ascertain the cause was surprised tc
see a pet crow, belonging to Mr
Blank, pick up a gold pen and fb
from the window to the ground, with
the pen in his mouth.
The gentleman followed the crow
which went to a shed back of a bakery
and saw the bird deposit the pen un
der an old box. He drove the crow
awav, and, turning up the box, fount
all the articles that had been stolen
from the different houses. The owner
of the crow was called, and he identi
fled several trinkets that had been
taken from his room. The article
were returned to their respective
