One evening Johnny hsd been talk
Ing with Mabel as usual. It was I
stormy nlgbt. and. being all s loo to his
office and consequently very lonely, be
kept her at the Instrument late.
Mabel bad been In bed perbap aa
hour when a be nesrd in her sleep the
rail that Johnny and she used to at
tract each other's attention. Some
time wss required for ber to wak up
and when ab did abe beard the ma

tb mUldl of a sentence:
"He's gone around to tb other door.

There was a brief lull, during which
Mi be I. wbo by this time waa wide
awake, waited, fearing tbat a be would
bear no more. It was evident tbat a
robber had broken into the station. It
occurred to ber tbat the Drat thing
be would do would be to order Johnny
away from tb Instrument tbat be
might not be able to glv tb alarm.
So was therefor surprised when the
Clicking began again.
"He has ordered me to keep on work.
Ing tbe key. covering me with his re

Tber followed a few seconds of
silence, during which Mabel held ber
breath, and wbeq.ibe sounds recom
menced tbey' did not mean snytblng
Doubtless tbe robber bad turned and
ordered Johnny to keep on.' Mabel ran
to ber brother's room, awakened htm
and told him what wss going on st
tb station. Henry Town got out of
bed. dressed himself as quickly as pos
sible, put a revolver In his pocket and
a rifle on his shoulder snd stsrted for
tb station. Meanwhile Mabel went
back to tbe telegraph Instrument and
when th clicking ceased for a few
momenta began to tell Johnny what
be hsd done and that ber brother was
coming. It required some Urn for ber
to get the message tb rough, for every
Mm Johnny stopped tb robber, wbo
was working st tb safe lock, turned
and ordered him to proceed. But
Johnny managed to bear a few words,
such aa "coming" and "courage. and
knew tbat be was to be relieved. Bat
whether tbe msn would succeed In
opening tb safe before aom on cam
to stop him wss a question. He was
evidently a skillful cracksman, th safe
was a very ordinary one. and be acted
as if fa counted on getting-it opened
be for sas'stane could arrive. He
drilled a bole In th lock and began to
work tb tumblers.
II bad not been engaged more than
twenty minutes when Johnny, facing
th window as he did. saw a figure
dimly looming np In tb darkpess
without He waa so agitated tbat be
ceased to work tb key. Tb robber
turned and sent a bullet clos to his
ear. At first Johnny thought th shot
had been fired at tbe figure without
but an order to "go on" convinced
him of his mistake.
Tb burglar again turned bis back
and recommenced bis work. Then
ther were sounds of dropping tum
blers, and Johnny heard tb safe door
palled open. At tbe same moment
there was a "crack" at tb window,
leaving a small bolt, Something
dropped behind Johnny, aud. turning,
h saw th robber lying on tb floor,
blood oozing from a bole Id bis heed.
Springing to th window, b on
locked It and Henry Town stepped
Into tbe room.
Tbe first thing Johnny did was fo
click tb news to Mabel, Ind tbe re
ply was tbe first message embodying
tore tbat passed between tbem.
It happened tbat Johnny bad consid
erable cash In tbe sat, which he In
tended to send In tb next morning.
This tb robber doubtless knew. Tb
fact of so much money being saved
through Mabel disposed the company
to liberality, and tbey sent her a
handsome check. A year later, when
