THE ROBBER OUTWITTED.
Willie Bailey was a household name about
hundred years ago, in the liner parts of
Clydeidale. Men, vriiinenTand.--Children--had
heard of Willie, and the greater proportion
d;seen-him:-----Tow r in-his-time;-could,exceL_
Willie - in dexterity. in, his profession, which
consisted of ahstracting money. from people's.,
pockele, and in , other predatory . feats. 'Ho'
- frequented the, fairs all round the district, Said
no man's purse was safe if. Willie happened to .
be in the market. Tho beautiful village of
Moffat, in Annandale,iwari ono of his frequent
places of resort when any of its fairs happen- .
ed to be held, and here, aniong the heneetfar
meri, he was_ invoriably successful; 'and to
show his professional skill on such occasions,
he has been- knoWn_..to rob a rain and return
higiiPurse ihrce the'
same day; but this he only to his intimate
friends; who were kind to him in proViding
lodgings, when plying his nominal occupation
of tinker from one farm-house to another ;
the ease of others, it was,
~ c ourse, different.
.His wife - abetted him in all his thieving ex
ploits, and generally sat in a place in the out
ortliii town, • that had - pi - eXiiniiity - been -
'fixed on, and there received in,silence whatev

Willie was a privileged freebooter; was goner
ons-withalvand'avell liked-by-lho-pcoplo in the._
neighborhood, on - wiemle- rarely_ committed-
any acts of plunder, and, any ono might have
trusted what ho called: his "honor."'
Willie's character was well known both to
high and low, and he became renowned for a
heroism which few who esteem respectability
would now covet.. The high estimation in
which ho was hold as au an , adept in — his 'pro
fession, induceil a ficiAtish nobleman to. lay a
high bet'with an Englishman of seine 'rank,
'that 'Willie would actually rot and fairly de
a'cortain noted 'rievcr • on the southern
side of. the border, who was considered one of
the most daring , arid dexterous that frequented
the itighwaysin those dubious tines; and ono
whose exploits the gentleman was in the habit
of extolling. The Scottish nobleman conferred
with Willie, and informed hini of the project—
s circumstance which mightily ploased our he . L
ro, and into which he entered with all enthu
siasm. The interest which Willie" took in'the
matter was to the nobleman, a guarantee ani
mate success; and, having given all the marks
of the robber, and directed him to the partic
ular place on the road where ho was' Bute to
meet withlim, lib loft it to Willie himself to
arrange the subsequent Mello of procedure.-
Willie's ingenuity was instantly at work; and
he concocted - a scheme whiCh fairly carried_
him through the enterprise. Ile got, an old,
frail-looking- peny,_partially _lame,_ancl_ with _
long, shaggy hair. Ito filled a bag of consic;!-;

ments, with clouted shoos, tattered under gar-
Monts, a cloak mended in a hundred, places,'
and -a :soiled, broad-brimmed bonnet oryhis
head.. 'The money-bag he tied firmly behind
the saddle; lie placed a . pair of pistols under,

accoutred he wended ,bia. ivay slowly toward
the border,,both ho and the animal apparently I,

highwayman, on opening Willie's bag, found it
filled with old buttons and other trash. His•
indignation-knew no bounds: ho swore, and
to no purpose. He' had been-outwitted-by—the
wiley Scot, find, artful as ho himself was, he
had met with one more artful still.

Some years ago—in the days of thirty shil

'a shade of his treasured eighty-seven_ pounds
do the midit . orhis despair;ntile man - had the
sense not to disturb the ashes of his Property.

it essential to be protected from imposition. .

by little, and by the, most:delicate use of the
warm water, : the" camel's hair pencil and pen
knife, got the various morsels separated before
him, and began to, piece thoni together. Tho
that piece laid down was faintly recognizable
by a practised : eye : as a bit ,of the left hand

came a bit era five; *then a ten; then more.
