while tho young man if pressed,
could escape to the roof and, by means
of a long rope, fastened to the dim-
ney, could liwer himself into either
the yard or the streot. TbU would
not insure bis escape, but it wa the
he-it plan the two could think of, and
served to render both less fearful of

on the roof, it iit iruo. and tied tho
long repe to the chimney, casting one

only for a blind. He had seen that
the bricks of the dividing wall between
the bouo occupied by bin. mother and
one of the two udjoining builJiogs,
had been loosely put up under the
ridge-pole, and his present deign was
to remove a few of these, crowd thro'

then tnplaee them. This pvrpnso bo

fur him came up near t-noush to hear
tho little nois ho was compelled to

roof, and tbo ropo around the chim

hail hoped ; and it was rrith a feeling
ol intense satisfaction tl'.U he heard
tbeiu announce the mucner ol'hiien
