My brother gave bis work a final polish, ami then viewed the valua ble article approvingly before plac ing them iu their softly padded ease. “Think they look well, little wo man?” he asked. 4T think they do, indeed,” I ans wered, in nnquulified admiration for Ted was a capital workman, and bad mended the pretty trink ets very skillfully, “I am sure Mrs. Bailey will be pleased. The owner herself would be puzzled to detect where ehe dumaged them.” Ted smiled; then, as be did not intend to take them back to the shop until the return of his em ployer, which would not be till the morrow, be deposited both the jeweled bracelets iu his customary “non-burglar-proof safe,” as ho jok lngly called a small, strong, square box which he had fitted with lock and key, padded inside and out, aud covered with chintz to match our sofa. He made use of this as a footstool, saying that evil dispos ed persons would be the less like ly to examine it; and many a jest be had about his placing gems un-| der my feet, and about me being a small persou with a high miud, for I set my foot upon gold, aud the' like nonsouse. Hear old Ted! Hej was so clever at his trade and so! trustworthy, that he had always usore work than he could get. through. He was very fond of mo I —his poor little crippled sister— would never allow me to sit too, long at my needle, aud shared with me in every possible way the little duties necessitated by our humble menage; so he and I jogged along very merrily. We lodged in two rooms in a quiet street on the out skirts of Bridgepool. Our landla ly was a kindly old body who had known our parents long before either Ted or I found ourselves on this world’s stage. Having pnt away the bracelets safely, my brother next packed up three or four watches he had been busy to settiug to rights, and pre pared to go to the shop in Bridge pool which usually employed. 1 wutcbvd him putting on his over coat, for the day was very cold; but be seemed slow in his move meuts; and I thought he was re luctant to leave me alone, for, though I was generally active enough, considering my infirmity, one of my bud spells was now on me, when, as lie knew, I found moving about a pain and a diflicul ty for some day*. It happened too. that Mrs. Brown—cur landla ly—had gone out for the day—a very rare occurrence. “Cau I do anything else for you before I go?” ho asked. “No, Ted, dear, thank you.” “Make sure; look around and see if everything is put handy foryou,” said my brother, placing my crutch a little nearer. “Everything,” I replied cheerful ly, “aud I’ve snch a lot of work to got through, I shall flud the after noon short.” “I don’t half like your being loft alone so long, for I may not be back before five,” said Tod,” eye ing me dubiously. “Cousin Milly would come around if I asked her.” “Yes, and bring her baby, who would hinder my work sadly. 1 don't like babies when 1 am busy. Go sway, Ted, you dear old fellow! Don’t bother about me—1 shall bs all right.” • “Well, by-by, Jjttle woman,” he said, stooping to kiss me. “I’ll bs home as soon as I cau, and Itessie,” he added, pansing in the doorway, “be sure you don’t touch the win dow today. The sash line snap ped this morniug. I must send a carpenter to mend it. You will re member.” I promised that I would, and my brother departed. 1 him go down stairs and shut the street door. At iirst the uuusunl quiet of the house whs rather depressing; but I soon j became too much engrossed in my ! sewing to pay attention to that, and stitched away husily at some things 1 jvas completing for a lady w ho was kind enough to praise my leedle-work, preferring it, as many lid, to inacliino stitched articles. Presently, 1 thought I heard a •light noise down stairs, like the [opening of a window, but as all re mained quiet afterward,, I put it down to mv imagination, and went on tranquilly with my work. After some time I was startled to bear a step, stealthy, but dis tinctly audible 6n tho landing out side, while under the door appear ed the slmdow of some one moving. “Perhaps Mrs. Brown has re turned,” was tho thought in my mind as I sat gazing at the door, hut then I turned cold with fear, for the handle was turned softly, and a strange nan looked in—a young man, with a pallid, greasy, leering face, ornamented by a thievish looking twist of hair on each side, while a limp cap of semi military cut was stuck rakishly ofl the side of his head. I noticed these details mochani cally as I sat petrified with surprise and fright, and I also noticed that his long dirty neck was without tie or collar, a shabby frock coat be ing buttoned up to his chin, aud that his dirtier hands sported more than one ring. This invididnal, after darting a swift glance around the room, slipped in and locked tho door, saying: “Slick!” Popsy-wopsy, don't be frightened! Pm not going te hurt you—not a bit of it! But, you see -etop that!” he growled, as he approached me, I recovered my self a little, and gave a good loud scream. Quick as thought ho had hit hand over my mouth, holding my chin and nose in such a manner that I was nearly suffocated; then he gave me a shake, saying: “Jt you do that again, I’ll pay you out, you little fool! There —she is going to be nice aud quiet now, ain’t sbef A pictsr of good behaviour, I calls her?” Talking thus, ho gagged ms dex terously with some of uiy Work— which, however, was pleasanter than his hand—ugh, that grimy hand!--on my mouth, and then producing some cord from his pocket, and iu a minute or two 1 was—poor little teeblo thing— bound hand and foot iu my chair. IIs griuoed at me as he remark ed: “Now, you know, ducky, I wouldn’t hare served you so if you'd have tho sense to keep quiet I never could bear to be rough to the ladies—never! list time is short, and you might have been hard to persuade; so perhaps,it is tbte best way after all.” While speaking thus, the flip paut rascal kept running his eyes around our neat little room. 1 road disdain iu his glance, and at that moment a suspicion darted in to uiy miud that he had comp with the object of stealing some of Ted’s work—perhaps the jeweled brace lets which were theu under my feet. With this thought there came to uie a lirui resolve to save my brother such a loss, if I possi bly could; ay, even though I had to endure tortures. 1 would not speak. I set-uiy teeth hard and watched the mau. Uis wandering glanoss soon reverted to me. “Look here, dear, if I loosen this cloth a bit, and you take breath, will you speak to me nicely1 On ly don’t scream again. It makes me quite nervous to b«ar you screHiu, and can’t do uo good.” IIow well I knew that, in a back room in a quiet street I “There, aiu’t it much more comfortable f” loosening the cloth. “Tell me now, popsy, yonr brother’s got seme vellyhlcs here, here, ain’t fief’ ] shook my head. “Oh, but he has, so you needu’t jog your noddle like that. Hotter toll me where he puts them. It will save lots of time, and bo more pleasant for yon.” Hut I only shook ray head the more. “Did you ever sec sich stubborn ness?” muttered the fellow, tjing up my mouth again. “I’m afeerd I shall have to make you speak di-, rectly, But I never like to bo un kind to the Indies, unless they drive me to it—oh, uevor!” Saying this ho began an exami-! nation of the apartment, proceed ing in wli.it, as I suppose, would be described by a “professional” as the ‘‘best style;” anyway, his movements were characterized by extraordinary celerity. Within a few minutes ho had gone to the bottom of every drawer and box in tho room, and also turned out the sofa-bedstead whore Ted slept at night. A pretty litter he mads of it all! lint lie had not yet dis covered the secret of my footstool, Can anyone imagine what I endur ed as I sat there helpless as a poor little Chinese “joss,” the cold per-: spiration of fear on my forehead, while I asked myself: “What will the fellow do nextf’' He turned round while proceed ing with the search and looking at me, said: “Hallo, Popsy, how pale you are! Ain’t going to faint, are you? Oh, don’t, faint, for I shall want you to talk to me a bit. I’ll open the window and give you a month ful of fresh air. This room is precious close.” He went to the window—the window which dear Ted had cau tioned me not to touch that morn ing— unfastened the catch and would have let down the tipper par); but he was saved tho trouble for, the cord being broken, down, quick as a shot, came the window and luck woold have it caught his eight Angers tight between the np per and middle frames. The paiu and ahoek must have beeu dreadful, ths window frame being a wide and very heavy one. lie uttered a howl, then kicked frantically; but all to no purpose, There he stood, with hands held aloft, eaught iu aa nice a trap as eoald have beeu devised for an evil doer. Tbon ho glauced at me, aud the sight of me, ‘‘pictor of good behav iour” that I was, must have filled his soul with remorse, since through his owu act I was power less to assist him. He whined, however. ‘•Can’t you help met” As it was impossible for me wil lingly to look on while a fellow feeling suffered such anguish as I knew he must be onduriKg, I used every effort to get free, but vainly. He bad tied me too firmly for that. He took to kicking again and swore horribly. May I never agaiu hear such language as I was forced to listen to that afternoon. nis hands soon swelled, and I saw some drops of blood trickle slowly down the panes, the rings he wore on bis dirty fingers hav ing boon forced into his flesh. The piercing air, which rushed in free ly through the wide apartment, 'must have greatly aggravated his suffering. I know I was nearly I frozen. Aud all this time the ' American clock on the mantel piece kept ticking oil'the moments tranqniliy, as though to assure me that time could not be hurried into a quicker pace by any considera tion of human distress. Imagine what two hours m such a situation meaut for both of us! Two hours! I think the poor wretch at the window fainted, tint the horrible dragging of bis body on bis poor maimed hand roused him directly. Trembling with cold and commiseration, I sat watching him, the tears rolling down my cheeks. Ob, why had I refused Ted’s kiud proposal to aend Cous in Milly to me? Why had I been eo captions about tier dear little baby? Better a room full of babies all doing their worst, than— But here I swooned and fell, chair aud all, on the rug before the cold grate, the fire having died out long since. Just at the hour of three I be came conscious of a dell thud be low, which I knew to bo a knock at the street door. I lay listening but rather lay wondering vaguely what would happen next than tak ing any interest in things of this life, from which 1 seemed in a manner to have floated away. After a moment 1 heard steps plodding upstairs, and a loud cheery yoice, which I recognized as that of our old friend, Mr. Joy, the carpenter, called out: “Hilloa! anybody at home!” Coining to our room door, lie knocked, then turned the handle, but of course found it locked. Be ing unable to speak, i yet fried toi groan, and made Rome inarticulate noises, but 1 could hardly hope the I old man heard them, ae he was; somewhat (leaf. As for my com panion in misfortune, one would suppose he would have hailed a prison as an escape from such a plight as tie was in, and so, no douht, lie would, only he had no choice at that niomnut, having gone off again in a heavy swnoti. I heard the carpenter go down stairs, and hopes of relief died away in my hreast. Oh, Joy, Joy, wliy did yon come to mock me thus! Two more hours probably | before Ted will he home! Shall I be alive by thou! My bound and selling limbs were on the rnck of pain; I lay and sobbed miserably. But bark! A shout from the back j garden. “VVliat the lickens is all this!” Again I heard the voice of Joy. It appeared that the carponter, on trying our room door and find ing it fastened, concluded we were all out, but went round to the back of the house “to have a look at the winder” which my brother had sent him to mend—of course not expecting to find it converted into a man trap. IIo had noticed while knocking at the door, that the parlor window was nnfnstened, and, thiuking it was unsafe, especially as Mrs. Brown was out, h« had us ed his privilege as onr old friend aud hers to get through and fasten it before coming up stairs. No doubt the thief had entered the house by that way. It waa not long before help cuidp, and the door was broken open, I when our misery was ended. I' dare say, since prisons were first built, there never was a culprit who walked into jail more meekly than did the one who inteuded to rob my brother. They say tho poor fellow’s hands will uover be right again; amputa tion may b« necessary, as erysipe-1 las is setting in. Well, all I can say is, I freely forgive him tor ths suffering, mental and bodily, he, caused me. I was in bed for a fortnight, but eventually got all right again. Dear Ted says I am a brick, but that may be his partiality. Any how, my footstool proved to be a very effoetivo safe. To this hour ; no oue kuowa about it but you,! Ted and myself. .I,,..... ^ Psla Prom sn Amputated Foot About four weeks ago at Byron, Dr Townsend ot Bergen, amputa ted the foot and ankle of Airs. Wm Uoodliff just below the knee. The foot and the portion of the leg re moved were buried in the cemetery, the wound was dressed as usual, sud the pstient was satisfactorily recovering and was as comfortable as could be expected in every par ticular, except that she had at times very severs pains in the am putated foot. The pain was very annoying and at tunes caused her to cry out from the suffering, from wliieli sho could obtaiu no relief. After about three weeks of such sufferiug her husband was prevail ed upon by his mother aud others to go to tiie cemetery and disinter ■the offending member, for it u 11 the time appeared to her that the foot was still attacked to her aud was the cause of ail the trouble. Ac cordingly, as her husband, William Uoodlitr, gives the account, be took up tho foot, and upon examination loutm me stocking nau oeen roncu down tightly across her heal and instep, which bound it Tery closely and also found that a bandage had been wonud very tigbt around her toes, upon which waa a very troub lesome corn. He removed the stricture occasioned by the stock ing and bandage and agaiu laid away in a careful and easy position the offending member, since which Hr*. Goodliff has bad no further trouble with it. This occurred about one weok ago, and there has been no return of those annoying pains. Mr. Goodliif says these are facts; that there is no mistake sbont it, and -that the statement can bo substantiated by unite u number of witnesses. “I’so got a complaint to make,” said Jim Webster to his employer, an Austin merchant. “What is it!” I “Do book keeper kicked me, sail I don’t w int no book-keeper kick me.” “Of course lie kicked you i You don’t expect me to attend to everything, do you?’ PROFESSIONAL AND BUSINESS CARDS «.
