having turned to our homes with such

concluded, after a few week, to tona us
down a little by sending us out here in

We Lad t.uly arrived the night before.
aud were just making their acquaintance,
when a telegram arrived, saying that a
favorite nephew of hers was dangerously
ill. and she was needed lo muse him.
Her first thought was to send us directly
home, and start herself the next morn
iiif : but we were so tirrd with our jour
ney, and begged to hard to be allowed to
stry, that at last she consented. If she
had known us a little longer, she might
have been a little doubtful about this
bcinir the best course : but we were so
demure that she evidently thought our
year at the couvent hnd made us almost
nuns. But I was telling you about that
"1 bt lieve the bacfc is coming," said
Bess, breaking the silence. "I hope so;
1 am afraid I shall get up and dance, and
astonish tbe old lady if she don't go

and steady. I have given them orders
about the place, and all you will have to
do will be to enjoy yourselves in a quiet
way. I wouldn't have anything to do
with tbe neighbors, unless some of the
old ladies call. The Greys over there,
have a hnruin scarum son home from
college with a friend. I never could
abide sludeuts. Of course, you would
not receive them if they ehould call, as
long as I am away."
"Of course not. ' We were not allow
ed to even look at a gentleman while we
stayed at tbe convent, were we, Nell T '
"Oh. no !" said I, with a warning look
at Nell, whose eyes were brimming with
"Well, I believe that's all. except tbe
silver. I always put it in a basket ia my
room every night. You know it is very
valuable, and baa been in the family a
great many years. Hannah is so old
aud fiightful, that I shall put that iu
your charge, Nellie. Take it in your
room every night, and lock the door. Of
course, there isn't a bit of danger in this
quiet place.; but it is always beat to be

The backman turned and gave me a
quick look aa he .gathered up the reins,
and I noticed that his free was anything
bnt a pleasant one. It made me a little
nervous at first, and I did not join very
heartily in Bessie's frolic, as she danced
into tbe bouse, and turned everything

touched Bessie, who whispered
"Yes. I heard. Some oue is trying to
get in." ' ' '
Then we listened, and there were foot
steps on the brick walk under onr win
dow, and tbe side door and the windows
were tried. They were firmly locked,
and there was no sound for a moment ;
listening closely, however, we heard
whispering, and then footsteps around to
the back, nf the house.
"There are two of them." said I.
irouuding out of bed. ' I am goiug to
Bessie followed suit, aud in a few
minutes wo had slipped on our clothes
and fastened the door more firmly. To
escape from the house was too dangerous
a thing to attempt at present; we had
rather trust to onr bolt on the door.
After a while we beard the sound of glass
breaking, and knew that they had ac
complished their purpose.
Joseph slept in a room out of the din
ing room, and. wakened by the souud,
called out sharply. Who is there ?"
A moment more and the terrible sound
of blows came to onr ears together with
the cry of "murder !" Then a heavy
fall. I cannot describe our feelings. I
thiuk at first we were almost paralyzed
with fright. When I heard footsteps in
the hall, I roused myself aud opened the
blinds of the window nearest our bed,
and looked dowu. . It would be a terri
ble leap to the walls below ; but better
tbat than to be murdered. I took the
bed clothe, except the sheets, and drop
ped them softly down- The sheets I
knitted firmly together, and tied one
end to the heavy bod post. By this time
onr door wm tried. Finding it locked,
they knocked loudly, and getting no re
sponse, whisperea a moment, then a
voica said crossly.
