Colder expresses his serene° that the

drawn taught, • the goat stood upon his

gave another sudden pull, and the maid
jumped out of bed with a smothered cry
of pain. Then she stooped down to de
tach the cord just as the ridiculous beast
gave another ,violent jerk, and she lost
her equilibrium—and her toe too, al
most, the cord cutting into .the tender
flesh. sprang to the window, and
called out in a hoarse whisper;—
, “Stop pulling, Charles—l'll be down

Then she made another effort to untie

bead several angry bobs, and each time
the girl gave a cry of pain. Again' she
