One evening as Arthur was preparing to
return to hU olfice, where important busi
ness would detain him all night, Sir Etchln's
groom left a pan el, with n note. Tho latter
stated that the former contained the famous
Etchin diamonds which their owner thought
safeit to intrust to Arthur's care, as he
had been unexpectedly called to London,
"I dou't caro what deeds they leave with

so taking the parcel, heat once proceeded to

Arthur, the best brother in the world, in

When I did, I
was almot immediately aroused by a slight
sound al my door. I asked who was there,
lane's voice answered in a cautious whisper,
Seeing something was wiong, rising, I ad-
mitted her. No sooner had she entered than
quickly closing, she fastened the door, and
exclaimed, in accents of terror, "Oh, iiiss 1

of the face flashed across me. "Oracious

Etchin diamonds I '
I saw it all. Tho groom's errand had
been divined, my brother's absence was
known, and by Jenkins' treacherous aid, the
place was being attacked. I dropped stun-
ned nn the bed. Then I started up.
At any cost even life tho diamonds in-
tru.ted to Arthur must bo saved, llurridly
I dre-sed, and while doing to, heard the soft
sound of persfins moving in the house.

"True ; thcretoro I must get out by the

looked ffround for the box, and not finding
It, with awful oaths and threats bade me say
where It wai. My only reply vm to shriek
aloud, until they checked me by blows, and
finally by placing a pistol at my head. I
implored mercy ; but I remained firm. I
felt my senM lepving me ; they, tin, saw it,
and by twitting my arms to create exquisite
torture, aroused me. At last one exclaimed,

answered by u shako of the head. How long
all Ih'n la-led I cannot tell ; but abruptly a
fearful noise sounded in my ears I felt the
water was rolling over me, and I was ecu

Tho immersion caused the most curious
sensation I ever felt in all my life before I
became unconscious. My breath went and
came at fitful intervals, and I had a painful
sense of smothering or suffocatlou, which
paralyzed my brain and deadened all power
of volition. I could nut speak for the life

A False Alarm.

hear a stranger of some notoriety. Soon af.
ter he had introduced his subject, the cry of
"fire I firel fire I" in the street very much
disturbed the congregation, and many were

and said :
'Jf the congregation will be composed, I
will step out and see if there is any fire

The congregation became composed, and
