A Brave Girl.
In the winter of 1842, a gentle
man and his daughter, a young lady,
while traveling through Canada, ar
rived about nightfall at an old fash
ioned tavern. The gentleman con
eluded to stop there instead of going
oa to the village ofS , which was
tea miles distant, and which they
bed thought to reach.
The daughter—Carrie— expressed
her willingness, as the tavern pre
sented a comfortable appearance,
aud they alighted, when it was plain
ly to be seen that the gentleman was
B*itt lame, so much so that be was
obliged to u9e a cane.
The landlord came out, and call
ing a boy to take the horse and sleigh
to the bam, he ushered Mr. Spencer
aad bis daughter into a pleasant sit
ting-room. where a bright ire was
burning on the hearth, which proved
very acceptable to our travt-lers, who
bad been in the sleigh since monmig.
"Your room will be ready by sup
per time, sir," said the landlord as
be left the room and went iuto the
Supper was shortly announced,
aad after refreshing themselves, Mr.
Spencer and Carrie returned to the
eoxy sitting-room, where they talked
aad chatted until half-past eight.
They were shown to their room,
which was on the second story, in a
wing somewhat distant from the
Tbe room was very long, with a
high ceiling. On cue aide was a
window aud on the other a door.
Just above tbe door was a bust of
King George 111.
The room was very plainly fur
aished, containing two beds, a wash
stand and a few chairs.
Carrie took in the whole room, at
aglauoe, and it must be confessed,
bad there not been a cheerful fire
burning, she would have felt nervous
about Sleeping there. As it was the
warm glow lit up the room into
While she and ber father sat by
tbe fire, her eyes wandered to the
bast above the door, when she no
ticed that the eve-bails had evidently
beeu knocked out, leaving two emp
"Well, Carrie, said Mr. Spencer,
presently, *1 think you had better
abat tbe door, I am going to count
my money.' "
After Carrie had done so, be drew
oat a money-belt, heavy with bills,
aad proceeded to count them.
While doing so, Carrie's eyes in
▼ohintanly wandered to the bust,
wbsn, to her horror and astonish
ment, In place of the empty spaces
were two glittering eyes, greedily
watching every movement of ber
Tbe young girl could ecarely re
press a scream ; bat, controlling
herself, she looked towards the fire,
wbl e her father went on counting a
large roll of bills.
"I mast have been mistaken,"
thought tbe fair girl. "What could
make me have such a strange fancy,
though ?" she continued, glancing
again at the boat.
Tbe eyes were still there—two
bvrning. savage eyes, that brighten
ed as Mr. Spencer went on counting.
"Good heavens 1" thought Carrie,
"what shall we do? We are evident
ly la a den ef thieves, aud will get
murdered for my poor father's mon
Ilpw communicate their danger
to her father without those terrible
eyes noticing it, Carrie could not
ttilok. Suddenly a bright idea cams
"Father," eke said, aloud, "let
me take a card and pencil, I wish to i
make a memorandum of some items
I wish to purchase Id the village."
IXer father banded them to her,
•iter stowing away his belt. Carrie
wrote, tremblingly, in fine hand—
"Father, do not be frightened ; |
we are In a trap. Go in the oppo
site comer of the room, where your j
faee will be In the dark, and look at
tbe bust above the door. In It you
will see two glittering eves that have
waUhed vou count yonr money."
"Read it," she said, aloud, hand
ing the eard io her father. "I want
you to see If I am too extravagant.*";
Iler father betrayed no emotion
while he read, but" said—
"You are pretty extravagant,
Carrie. I suppose you think your
father is made of money ;*• and he
**oee and went to tbe washstand, ■
which vm In the daik corner.
Once there he glanced toward the
bust, and that glance confirmed his
daughter's extraordinary statement*
When he came back to his seat,
Carrie saw that the eyeH were gone.
Then, leaning toward her father,
•he said in a lw tone—
"You see it is as I said. I have
thought cf a plan, however, by
• wh'oh we can b th escape You
' would lie perfectly helpless in an af
fray of any kind on account of your
lanse leg, so ( must try to save us
Then followed a whispered consul
tation, during which Carrie kept
her eyes fixed on the bust ; but the
glittering orbs had not come hack.
As she concluded, Carrie went to
the window, threw it up, and looked
out. Beckoning to her father, alio
came, she said, or rather whispered.
) " Yon see this shed, father ? Well,
they will probably come up ou it and
get in through the window. I do
not think they will make the attack
before twelve, so I will get ont of
this window jump from the shed,
go to the barn and take our horse,
and go to S for help."
Flinging a wrap over her slight
figure, she embrace*l ser father ten
deily, and bidding him not to worry
over her, she juraied lightlv out ou
the shed and disappeared.
Mr. Spencti watched her for a
while, then closing the window,
took out a watco, saw that it was
nine o'clock, and proceed* d to work.
lie first covered up Ihe lire, blew
out the light, and rolled up a blan
ket, with which he made a dummy.
This he placed in the bed which his
daughter was to *>ccupv.
Then lie sal down and waited
oh I how anxiously.
Ten, fifteen, twenty minutes,
went by, and no sound came from
the vicinity of the haru.
Taking iff his Inxits, he crept noise
lessly to the window and peered out,
but he could see nothing.
Then, creeping to the washstand,
he laid bis money-belt iu the drawer
and clast-d it,
lie then threw himself on the bed,
and once more waited.
After an hour hud apparently
gone by. Mr. Spencer threw off his
coat and west, tumbled up the lied,
hobbled to the door, unlocked it,
and Btep:ad out into the hall. This
was all iu accordance with Carrie's

looked arouuu, chagrin depicted ou
" Why -don't you wake your daugh

Mr. Spencer hurried to her bed.
"Carrie, Carrie 1" he called, but
ro answer came ; and the landlord
drawing sear with the light, saw
the dummy, and cried
" Why, man, the girl isn't there 1"
"What I" gasped Mr. Spencer,
"Oh, T see it all I The wicked girl
has roblied me while I slept, and
ran off to meet her lover, from
whom I was taking her,"

by the landlord.
"Yes, yes, here are footprints in

landlord, while Mr. Spencer groaned

been gone, si- ?" asked the landlord, j
"For an hour or more, the deceit- J

Spencer thrpw himself on the bed,
and awaited the return of bis brave
"God bless her, and bring her ;
back in safety," he murmured.
Meanwhile all grew still, and the
hours rolled by.
The fire had been raked up and
crackled merrily. The eyes were
not looking from the bust; they had
evidently disappeared for the night.
At last, after what seemed an age

and five raitiubs afterward heard
the landlord stumble to the door.
Tnen followed a confused jumble of
curses and struggles, then a rush of
many feet up the long hall and stair
The next minute the door was
thrown open and his daughter rush

the inmates sprang out and rushed
to my assistance. I must have been
almost insensible, for I had to lie
carried in by the landlord. I was
given warm drinks until I fully re

and my fears, and this gentleman—

man's hand, and thanked him.

Carrie," he said, and advancing to

thrust his head in the bust, which
was large enough for an ordiuary

was going on in the adjoining room.
This certainly look.d suspicious,
but absolute proof was yet wanting.
On returning to the room occupied
by Mr. Spencer, they searched every
nook and corner.
Suddenly, Carrie and Mr. James,
