the door wide open, and saw before
her two masked figtirq, who, unheard
by her. had crept tip. We. . -carpeted stairs.
She had scarcely time to cry, " Who
are you ?" before they sprang at her.
Her light was dashed to the floor . ; their
arms were wound around her and held
her like a vise; and a stern voice whis
pered in her ear—
" Make the slightefit noise and you
are a dead . wortfanl' . Do as ybu. are

"-As if to add emphasis to these words,
Martha, With a shudder, felt the cold
barrel. of a pistol pressed against her
" Only release we and tell me what
it is you want me to do !"
Her voice sounded strange in her
own ears.
" Let go of her and strike a light,"

Still•holding her by the wrist, but in

men conducted Martha down the wide
old staircase till they reached the
ground floor of the bank, the second
man following closely behind.- As they
went down the lowest flight of stairs,
Martha was startled to see a third
masked figure—a woman,' this time,
and clothed in a 'gray mantle from head
to foot—who lighted their downward
prOgress with a slender ray from the
lantern in her hand They halted for
a moment at the foot of the stairs.
" Is it not possible," said the leader
to Martha, " that the pass key of one
or both the brothers Wangsliaw may

" It is possible, but not very likely,"
Still we may as well ascertain

door of the 'private office, and then the

sat, ono-facing the other.

implements selected by him from the I
rest, the desk of both the brothers'
were forced open and their contents
laid bare. There was no keyin"either•
of them. A very brief examination
sufficed to convince the leader of that
fact. With n muttered oath he turned
"Five minutes' honest labor lost,"'
he said. "We must now, try the gen

—.Then,_atilL holding Maitha—by—the
wrist, he led the Ido' out of the office
and along the corridor that led to the
heavy oaken, door, thickly studded
with iron bolts, which opened on the

key ; and,-as before, Militha,com plied.
Further than this the keys would not

falling back of its own accord as the
bolts were withdrawn, and revealing a
gloomy flight of stone stairs, ending in

to keep a watchful eye on Martha, the
leader took the lantern ,and descended
the steps. He reappeared in a couple
of minute's, and led the way back to the
private office without a word. Once
there, lie turned and spoke to Martha.
" I must compliment you on your
sensible conduct in this affair," he said.

The last sentence was addressed to
the masked swoman, who up to qs
time had been a mere looker-on. Nonc

leader, she placed Martha. with her
back to a large iron pillar which sup

some hidden pocket, she next produc

it proceeded to tie Martha firmly to the
pillar. ", Her arms were left at liberty
till the last. When all else was done,
they were fastened together at the
wrists - With a hand of strong woven
stuff,- which held them as firmly us if
'they had been bdund with iron.
" To have fastened your, arms down
to' your sides fora couple of hours
would have been a refinement of cruelty
of which, in• your ease, I have no wish
to he guilty," said this Grandison of
house-breakers. " One Hide point still
remains. You must give me your word

" I give you my word not,to cry out
or create any alarm by calling for

Monts' silent thought.
"That is enough: I trust you."
As before stated, the room in which'
.the girl was' confined was the private
office of the Wangshaw Brothers. it
was a comfortable room. The floor was
covered.. with a faded Turkey carpel,
and the' old fashioned inaliogyy fit
tingS were-almost black with age. The
only light at present was that given by
the small gas jetibefore mentioned. It
was just sufficient to . enable

her mind that it was impossible for her
to escape,, she set about in calculating
how long her imprisonment was to last.
It 'Was now about half past 1 A. M.;
and at 10 Will Tarfford would be here
to-spend his Christmas day at the bank.
If not set at liberty before that time—
and she' could hardly hope to be:so,
seeing that the burglars would require
some time to get clear away after leav

being released on the arrival of her
sweetheart: He would naturally be

and finally she, Martha, would be dis

hours and a halrof imprisonment-Land

thought was still in her head
when the masked woman cams gliding
noiselessly into the office, with the in
tention of seeing that her prisoner was
e e iead'ustment of a knot or
two satisfied her.
" You have been trying to escape,
and you have found that you•cannot,"
she said as.she turned to go. " Take
my advice, and rest quietly. At such it
time as this we do not stick at tellies."
" What can the woman be 1" asked
Martha of herself. "Wilat a strange
thing for a female to be mixed up with
such an affair !"
More dreary minutes passed ; how
many she,could not have toll. She
was dreadfully cramped, and the cord
by which she was fastened seemed bit
ing into her very flesh. All ordinary
thoughts were - being gradually swal

minute, was becoming more unbeara

been revealed to her at one glance a

stood fin• a few moments Almost breath

there it was before her very eyes, a sure

er, perhaps, hilt it would soon be ()via..
But she would not give herself time to
argue the point, lest her courage should
fail her. She would put herself to the
immediate proof.
The pillar to which Martha was tied
was within a yard of the desk that had
been broken open. Close to the edge
of this desk was the upright gas-pipe
from which sprang the small jet, still
alight, of which• mention has already
been made. By stretching out her
arms Martha could reach this jot She
could do more than that—she could
hold her wrists over it anti let the flame

were fastened together; and her hands

This was the method of escape that

Veit Martha now crept with stealthy
swiftness. When she had reached the
edge of it, she stood for,a , mornent and
listened. Then keeping her body well
out of sight she protruded her head
within the line of light and *looked.•
Her gaze went down the - stone stair
case and into the cellar.
The Iron door at the foot of the'
stairs bad been forced open, and the
thieves were noW.husy- withAbe_ueat

instruments wore scattered about the
floor. One of the men was busy with
a crow bar, swathed in flannel, trying
to force open one of the doors of the
safe. The other, man was busy dril
ling hales in another door with a
strange looking implement, the like of
which Martha bad never seen before.
The woman was lighting these opera
tions with a lamp held aloft in one of
her hands. All three were standing
with their backs to the stair case.
Martha's eyes took in the picture at
a •glance. There was one thing be
sides which they took in, to wit : the
bunch of keys with which she had
stairs. The bunch of keys was 'now
lying on the landing at the top of the
stairs, close .to the iron door. 'Could
she hot obtain • posSession of it, she
saw not only a way of escape for her
self,4mt. a way by which the thieves
might be caught in their own trap.
.But to obtain possession of the keys
without disturbing the the thieves was
thb, one dillicult thing to do.
There was only one mode of oh:
taining them and that was to fetch
therm . But to do this - unseen and no-
card, seemed_at. the first glance ut,
terly impossible. 'At the second
glance it seemed a little more feasi
ble, but still a dangerous thing to,
do. Nevertheless she made up her
mind that it must lie attempted. For
tunately the door at the Shot of the
stairs - had not been pushed quite hack
to the wall, in consequence of which
its bulk intercepted part of the light
held by the woman, so that that por
tion of the lauding Which was be
hind the door lay in deep shadow, and
this shadow extended itself in a nar
row strip from -the bottom of. the
stairs to the toit. -- It was down this
strip of darkness herself a moving
shadow, that Martha began to glide
on her dangerous errand. Fortunate
ly her dies, was
,a dark one, and
her -feet were unshod. H''r sole
chance of safety lay in the fact of
the three . people Wow stairs being so
intently - o 6ipie - d . that theY would
neither .see nor hear her ; and Mar
tha judge that they were so oc
cupied, bee use, -for- tbe last few
'minutes, c versation among_ theith
selves ha almost entirely ceased.
The' grand crisis of their labors was
evidently at 'hand. With her back
and hands pre - ssed to the wall so as to
keep herself in as small a place as pos
sible, and with the skirts of her dress
kept close about her, Martha began to
'neve slowly down stairs. Her face
was very white but filled with a
fine resolution. From her present
position the inmfltes of-the cellar were
- not:visible to her, but both 'her-eyes
were painfully on the alert, and they
told her so far everything was safe.
By an inch at a time, as it seemed, and
so, slow that her advance was almost
imperceptible, Martha kept decending
steadily. In all there were 'fifteen
gtairs to go down ; she had counted
them many it time ; and as each one
was now cleared and left behind, her
heart gave a hide extra throb, and she
felt that by so much was her task
»earer completion and that by so
much had her danger beco o c more
imminent: ~,When a dozen stairs had
,been passed in safety, she paused a
moment or tWO in her progress The
beating of her heart 'sounded so un
naturally loud and strange in her ears,
that .the was afraid ttltoso in the cellar

while her heart grew stiller, her faint

onward again. Thirteen. Fourteen.
The first i'mt of her tusk wits over.
She stood at the foot of the stairs, the
iron door close behind'her, the bunch
of keys within a Italtynrd of her feet.
The next difficult thing to do was to
.pick up the keys, which were threaded
on a .steel ling without being '.heard
by the thieves She. Wdß on the point
of stooping to make the attempt when
the wonian inside:the cellar spoke.
"Yon must do' without me a militia:

that by putting her.,, hand out, Martha
eciuld have touched her dress, "when )

said, "and I. .oannot spare you just

to her strength, turned on the well

The door had scarcely been shut a

men'inside began tearing and beating

Now, - that the - door was shut, she
was 'Completely in the dark ; and so,

slight weakness; he had a very bad memo
