It has been many long days since
then, yet I remember It all, Just as
though It had occurred yesterday.
I was a carpenter, the foreman of a
large establishment, and as such pos
sessed the entire c mfidence of my em
ployer, whtt, by Hie way, had been an
old schoolmate bf mine.
One day he called me, into bis office
lo look at some rare coins he had just
"Here," said he. placing in ir.y hand
a heavy gold piece, 'Is one which Is
woith all the rest pu. together. It is a
great curiosity. I paid two bundled
di.l.ars for It, and consider it cheap ai
that. I could easily double my money
in eellllng it; and so you see, Harvey,
it is a good Investment."
"No doubt it Is," said I, "thouuh it
seems a large sum to have He Idle."
I breathed an Involuntary sigh as I
laid the coin down op tliu desk, for two
hundred dollars would have seemed a
I'oitunu to me u.-t then.
The severe Illness of my' wife anil
one of my children, ami the death of
another, made serious inroads on my
purse, and it had required the utniot
economy to keep myself free from debt.
Nay, I had been obliged to withdraw
from tho bank the small sums which,
besides my salary, were all I possessed'
of worldly treasures. Thinking of
this, I laid the coin down with a sigh,
and turned away to atteud to niy du
ties. The next morning I was again sum
moned into the office, but this time I
met with no friendly greeting as usual.
"Harvey," said my employer, ab
ruptly, "that coin we were looking at
has disappeared. I have made a thor
ough search, but It is not to be found.
It lias been carrie I away by some .0110.
You alone saw or knew or it, and "
He paused and looked .significantly
Into my face. , I finished the sentence
lor him, the hot blood dying my cheek
and brow as I spoke.
"You mean, therefore, thai' I took
it 1 1
"What else can I think? The coin
was hero; yon alone saw It I cannot
recall having seen it since It was In
your hands. You are in need of n'.oney
you have told me that yourself, It
was a great temptation, and I forgive
you because of our own friendship, but
I cannot retain jnu In my employ.
Here Is the (.alary due you."
"Very well," 'said 1, with forced
calmneM, "so bo It. Since you have

faltluul service, I shall not stop to de
Then I took the money he had laid
upon the desk, and went out from his
presence a well ulgh broken-heaited
I Jut for the tender love of my wife,
I doubt not but that I nould have
burled my sorrows in the grave' of a

Supported by that love.'however, and
the consciousness of my owp inno

resolutely to work to find a new em

Time went on; piece by piece of fur
furniture and every spare article of
clothing found Its way to the pawn
brokers, until at length even tbs poor
resource failed us, and my. chlldreu
cried In vain for foo'd.
Yet I did not bit down In idle de-patr.
I could not afford to do so. The life or

while a gentleman, evidently architect,
was addressing hiin in cnnic.-t lan

"1 tell you," ho exclaimed, as I drew
near, ,"lt mut nnd'eaii be dune. The
cross .muat be taken down, or the firt.
heavy gale will send it down into the
street, and lives will be lost. Coward I
is this the way you back out of a ob
after engaging to do it?"
"I didn't know the spire was so high
up there. Do It yourself It you want
it tlone." o
"I would, If I were able," said the
architect. "Uut go If you will; let it
be. . My honor is pledged to have it
done at any prico--and I can find a
braver man thau you to do it."
The carpenter walked away with a
tlogged, slouching step, and the gentle
man was about to walk away also,
when I steppitl for.vard.
"What ls.it you want done, sir?" I
akked. "I am a carpenter; pet haps I
can do it."
He turned eagerly towards me.
"I will 111ake.lt worth yotit while.
Take down that eros.., and I will pay
you it bundled dollars. You wl luve
to ascend 111 ise ornamental blocks, and
I t-ll you candidly they are not to be
depended on; they are weak and rotten,
for they luve been there fr yu.trs."
I looked at the spire; it whs square
at the base, and Uipo ed to a sharp
point, while along each angle were
nailed small glided, blocks of wood.
"It's it dangerous place to work," I
said, "and there will bo even more
peril lu descending th.111 ascending.
Suppose I succeed In moving the cross,
"If any accident happens to you, my
brave fellow, the money ehall be paid
to your family. I promise you that.
Give nie your address."
"Here it is," I said, "and ns you
value your soul keep your word
with inc. My wife and children are
starving, or I would not attempt this
work. If I die they can live on the
hiiiidri'd'dollars for awhile until my niqk
wife recovers her strength."
"I'll make it n liumlr.il and' fifty,"
exclaimed tho architect, and may God
protect you. If I had the skill neces
sary lo ascend that steeple I would a-k
no man lo ris lilt life there. Hut
come, and keep a steady hand and eye."
I followed him Into the church, then
up Int) the sp.re, until we pati-ed De
fore a'narrow window. Tills wa,4 the
point from which I must rtait on the
perl'ous feat which 1 had undertaken.
Casting a single glance at the people
in the street below,, mere specks in the
distance, I reach"!! out from- the win

but tht remembrance of my starving
family came to my aid, and with a si
lent1 prayer for protection and sucveaf,
I placed niy 'hand upon the next block
above my head, and clambered up.
From biK'k,to lilock I went, steadily
and cautiously, 'try It.g each one ete 1
I trui-tcd my weight upon It.
Two-thirds of 'the space had been
passed, when suddenly the block' that
supported mo moved gave way. Oil,

Down, down I ellnped, grasping at
each block as I passe I it by, until ai
length my fearful course, was nne.tted,
apd then, while my. head leeled with
the sudden reacllon, a great shout came
frpin the peop'e Mow,
"Come ,'diuvii; come down I" callecf
the architect from the window; "hull

treacherous. This I was compelled to
do, however, until I he spit v Ib'tween
the angles beuuiie siifficltntly small to
allow me to swing acnis.s. Accomplish

more rapidly, carefully te.-tliig each

Ere long I reached tho cross, and
there I paused to rest, .looking down
