XT PERIL AMD ESCAPE.
I was a Jvery bold sad fearless
gil l,'and my brothers and waters of
ten dared me to go teto lonely placet
in the dark, ordoperilous feats of
■various kinds, which challenges 1
n erer refused. Often they act out
to play tricks on me, but it usually
happened they fell into their own
traps, while I performed my part in
We lived in a huge old house,
built of English oak, and bearing
its nearly two centuries very light
ly. It opened to the south, and the
two large parlors opened to the east
and west. The dining-ball and spa
cious kitchen f*med the square of
the bouse, while at the west And
back was another large room* some
times called the great porch, And at
the east and back was the dairy and
Another porch. There were three
stairways leading to the upper rooms
And a garret, whose ample space was
broken only by the great chimney
in the centre.
We had a gay and lively hcuse,
and were used to a great deal of
company and visitors, for my par
ents were greatly given to the old
fashioned virtue of hospitality. The
humblest wayfarer coming infc*ke
porch was entertained kindly and
given God-apeed, as well as the
guest whose elegant carriage and
span drove around to the front-door
on the southern side.
It was a summer day, and warm,
bright and beautiful. The morning
promised a lovely day. Just after
our early breakfast a merrv part
came riding down the lane In -car
riages and on horseback, and yelling
joyously for my father and mother
to accompany them on a pleasure
trip. They were accustomed to this
mode of Impromptu festivity, and
gaily answered that they wotAd soon
he ready. It was only the day be
fore that my father had returned
from the Austra Han gold fields, and
had brought with him a bag of gold.
I knew he had £his,for I had seen
him the night befo re counting some
ont of it and putting it into another
Thomas brought the chaise to
the door. Father's favorite black
horse, whose coat looked like lus
trous velvet, and who stepped so
proudly, was pawing the ground im
patiently as he appeared. He hand
ed in my beautiful mother, and I
stood looking on wit h childish pleas
ure at her beautiful and rich dress,
that so becatre ber.
1 hasten 3d indoors again to see
them wind down the private way
that led through our extensive
grounds and half wished I were old
enough to go with them. Hearing
aeiigkt noise, J turned and taw a
stranger, a figure not unusual, a
man with a bundle hung on a stick.
He was leaning on the stone wall,
*nd apparently looking after the
carriages. He came forward m a
moment, and asked if lie might sit
•down and rest, and if I would kind
ly give him something to eat. Of
course I said yes, and, with quick
steps, soon had him % substantial
lunch of bread and cheese, which lie
came into the kitchen to eat. Betsy
and Hannah were busy hurrying to
finish their work, fur they were go
ing out to tea and to spend the
•evening. They talked gayly about
Jtbeir visit, paying little attention to
the stroller, who was quietly eat
•ing. He had laid his straw hat on
tho floor, and I saw that his head
•was bald on top, and the thinnisb
ihair brushed up from behind over it.
He had prominent ears, low fore
head and large mouth, with a reced
ing chin, where grew aatubby beard
of grizzly black Uke las hair. I
don't know why I observed all this,
or his eyes, small and tad under gray
ish brows -that seemed to glance fur
tively about him wlten no one ap
peased to be took ing. . His voice
was harsh mC creaking, and had
startled me when be'first addressed
We were used to strollers of all :
kinds, as I have said. Perhaps I
was mentally contrasting bis. repul
siveness with my father's noble and
dignified He seemed to
aft? very ugly. I was glad when lie
had his meal and risen to
go. HB .aeked s pepission to light
hi* pipe, which was readily granted.
He went out directly passing acci
dentally through the dining room
and out of the great hall, where lie |
lingered for a jpofpegt or two. He;
imathanked me ojviljy enough fori
Id* breakfast, but the girls laughed
and nodded fas he went out, and
said they should think I had picked
up a raven.
All the long, bright day I was
busy and happy in the flower garden,
or sewing, or reading; and when
the girls left, looking very cheerful
at their half-holiday, i wished them
a merry time, and told them net to
hasten home, for Thomas should
come for them.
I expected my father and mother
soon after eight o'cflock, and told
Thomas he might go about that
time, as they would soon be home,
and It looked a little like rain.
Heavy clouds were gathering in the
west, and the thunder ramified sul
lenly. He took the covered wagon
and old gray, and, before he stepp
ed in, said:
"Miss Ann, I think you had bet
ter fasten the doors, aa you may be
all alone for a short time if I should
go soon. Would you rather that I
should wait until your father
4k O no, Thomas, I don't mind be
ing akooe the least, and you ought
to go, lest it should rain hard, for
it is more than two miles to ride,
and they may not wish to leave in a
minute." I expect father and moth
er every moment, Don't wait."
So Tliomas left, and the wagon
rattled merrily up Che late. I bolt
ed the doors, became be bad told me
to, for otherwise I woukl not have
thought of it. It grew dark rapidly,
and the thunder began to peal heavi
ly, while the wind rose, and the
dashes of lightning grew more vivid
and frequent. I went out to the
east parHr, and looked to the south,
but tba sudden lighting up of the
sky and the falling darkness did not
interest me long. I coifld net see
out very well, either, aa the honey
suckles covered the windows. The
large mirror reflected mess 1 turned
away to cross the room, and I stop
ped a moment with natural vanity,
for I was young and fair enough to
I let all my hair fall loose, and
wound it in long, shining curls over
my fingers. It certainly did look
handsome, for it was very thick and
fell below my waist, and curled al
most of itself as it felL There came
a great flash of lightning, and I saw
distinctly reflected in the glass a
face looking in at the window. It
was an instant of terror, but I neith
er screamed nor moved. He could
not see my face, and I kept my body
still, and rolled the long, shining
rings off my cold, white fingers. It
was an ugly face, and I recognized
it. I had seen it that morning, and
I knew what lay before me. I pray
ed inwardly a brief prayer for help.
Turning from the glass I went
steadily toward the table that stood
near the window, on which I had
left my candle. I moved steadily as
usual, and took op the water-pitch
er and looked in, and then took my
candle and went toward the kitchen.
The lightning kept flashing, but the
face did not come again. I set the
pitcher on the dresser, and with soft,
light footfall hastened through the
west rcom, up the front stairs, into
my father's chamber, and softly
closed and bolted the door at the top
of the stairs. I unlocked his box
took ont the bags of gold, relocked
it and made my way into the great
I lieard voices; I heard the doors
tried below. I knew it was not my
father. I dared not tremble nor
grow feint I went through that
room and two others to the garret
stairs. I hardly breathed. I beard
a window pushed up; more than one
person eame in at it. 1 felt about
in the dark. There was a sliding
panel in the inside of tbe stairway.
I pushed it, and it rolled hack. I
entered into a long closet nndertbe
stairs, and slid tbe panel carefully
into its place. I felt cautiously to
see if all was safe. I pulled my
dress close about me lest it might be
caught, and the door not closed tight
ly. Then I waited. I heard steps
coming up the stairs. I beard a
search through all the rooms below.
My heart beat till I thought that
every bound mnst be audible; heard
voces—one voice, the Raven's. I
knew that harsh croak. It told me
nothing. The face had revealed all
to me. The man must have learn
ed in some unaccountably way of the
bag of gold, and learned, too, when
here in the morning, that I was to
be alone. It was all plain to me
now. He had returned, and had
brought accomplices. My peril was
terrible imminent. Very soon the
steps and voices eame my way. I
could distinguish plainly the words
that were spoken:
"Drat ber! she mnst have seen
"No matter; we'll split the box
open with this axe."
I knew the axe was in the little
porch. Thomas had set it in when
he had done chopping the brush, as
it looked like ram,
I heard the steps and voices move
away, a null, crashing souad, and
then stifled, angry tones. I knew
that they had opened the box, and
found nothing but the papers. I
knew they would now search for
me. I heard them as tliey looked
into every room and eloset, and came
up the stairs separately. They all
met at the foot of the garret stairs,
A thick beard was between us. I
thanked God that the panel was
.close shut. I knew it; for mo xay
of light came through.
"She must be ap<bers," said the
. Raven, "and wrbsoon have ber."
"I'll warrant site ishere, and I 'JI
■ wring her week if ahe make a noise
But the thorough search was end
ed, and the voices grew very angry
and full of frightful oaths and
threatening*. They sat down on
the garret stairs to hold a parley.
A spider ran across my face. It
was with great effort that I kept
"Come," croaked the Raven, "let
us go and get the silver; that will be
something—that will be something."
'Curse tbe silver. It's llie gold
Tve come for, and I'll burn tbe
house if I don't find the girl! So
let her look outl"
A cold perspiration. Would they
perform their threat ?
"Good ! then the rats will squeak,
—Down drop the money bags, and
we'll choke the girl to maike her
"Hold your noise. The did man
will be coming home. We'll be
caught here. Be quick."
"Who cares for him f He's only
one; a bludgeon will give him a
handy little headache aa be comes
"And his wife ?"
They spoke low, hideous words
that made my flesh creep. I was al
most rerdv to call aloud, to open the
panel, to give them tbe gold, and
bid them go. The? got up, and the
steps and voices went down. It
was horrible there in the dark. I
was stifling. I moved the panel
slightly. No light entered. • I slid
it softly back. My resolution was
taken. I would get out of the
house, run down the road and meet
my father- I would save him, 1 left
the gold in the closet, shutting it in
close. I stole down two steps into
the chamber below. I knew there
was a window open there. I crept
across the room, listening keenly. I
lifted myself cautiously on tbe win
dow ledge, and caught a branch of
the cherry-tree which grow close to
the house. Swinging myself light
ly out, I hastily descended the trunk
of the tree, and found myself on the
No. The lightning flash betray
ed me. The Raven 'a voice shrieked
"There she goes 1 Catch her!
Quick! This way 1"
Oat of the front door came the
pursuers, hardly ten steps from me.
1 dashed toward the thick sbrnbbery,
to throw tliem off tbe track. For
tunately, 1 knew the way, every step
ef it. They were galled slowly by
the sound and flaahtsg light.
"Shoot her by the next flash !"
My flying feet struck loose boards.
I was passing over an old, unused
well, very deep, and it gave back a
hollow, resonant sound. Almost
the next moment I heard a crash,
the report of a pistol, a heavy fell,
oaths and a deep groan. Shudder
ing, I sped on through the garden,
up toward tlie elder-press, over the
stone wall, down tlie hollow, up the
hillside, over the fields.' No steps
followed; no voices shouted after
me. I ran down to the second bars
and let them down. It began to
rain a few drops, then fast, tlien it
poured. I was wet to tbe skin. 1
ran on, for I advancing wheels
coming rapidly; I stood in the rrwui
and cried:—"Father! father!" The
chaise stopped. Another chaise
stopped also. It was our next neigh
bor's who lived a quarter of a mile
"Ann, my child! Good heavens!
What ia the matter ? What has
I told the whole in a few words,
amid eager exclamations of joy at
my safety, of surprise, even of an
ger, because Thomas had left me
4 Don't blame him, father. I in
sisted on his going."
A hurried consultation took place.
Mv father was very brave. Our
neighbor was very timid. He pro
posed going on to his house and re
turning with weapons. In the
meantime I had got into the chaise
and croacbed down at my mother's
feet, who was half crying, and whol
ly thankful to feel me there.
We rode on and came to our gates
nnder the willows. There were
lights in the house, but all was still.
Nothing moved. My father put the
reins in my mother's hands, and
opened the other gate that led up
"Will you go home with Na
than ?" said he.
44 And leave you here ? No."
4 'Take your wife home, Nathan,
if you will, and come liack."
"Let us reconnoiter, tlien, a little."
They got out, leaving us sitting
still. The rain fell less heavily.
They got something that would do
for weapons from the tool-house.
They went all around the bouse—all
was qoiet. They went in. We sat
still, sneaking few words, my hand
clasped in my mother's, and my
frame trembling with fright.
"Thomas is coming 1" I exclaim
ed. eagerly. "I bear the wheels."
We called to him as lie came to
tbe gate, for he could not see us.
He drove through and called ont:
44 What's the matter ?"
We told liim sufficiently, and he
left Betsey and Hannah, and went
in at once with only the heavy
whip. We did not wait long. Na
than came out directly.
4 What have you found ? Who is
"Are thev all gone ?"
44 Yes, with some of the silver and
a few other things. We don't know
The horses were put under the
shed, and we all went in. Father

I knew they would go to the old
well I stood and looked out of the
window and saw the gleam of the
lantern as it moved. In a very few
minutes they came back.

father, 4 'and the other Ilea at the
bottom and groanes. The third has

barrels in the shed, and brought the
dead man and laid him on them.
His comrade, who fell in the well,
had shot Mas lu the head as he
plunged through the boards. His

Raven. That night my father's
