the blinding snow, and saw just be

With a last desperate effort he found
the door, threw it open, and rushing
in, flung himself at full length upon
the floor, knowing only that he was

fumes of bacon, and warm with
smoke which rose from a pan of

was left with her baby. Accustomed

replied : SL

You are all alone, I took
particular care to ascertain that be

make yourself easy on that score
and do as I bid you."
"Do as you bid me ?" exclaimed
Alilly,in terror ; "what do you want
of me ?"
"I want that twelve hundred dol
lars in gold your husband received
for his produce two days ago. You
probably know where it is."
Milly sprang into the entry and
would have fled, but the stranger
caught her by the wrist, and drag
ged her roughly back.
" You cannot escape me, young wo
man," he said. " You will find it
most convenient to make a clean
breast of it at once. It will be bet
ter for you.".
Milly strove to release her aim.
The rough treatment she received
aroused her temper, and indigna
tion overcame all other feelings.
"Let me go, you scoundrel, let me
go, or I will call for help," she
"Call you fool," said the brutal
fellow, "and much good it may do
you. Keep yourself still and tell
me where the money is."
"I will not 1" she exclaimed, her
eyes flashing fire.
"You will not," he then replied :
j," we shall see." i
He released her wrist bo violently
that she reeled half way across the
room. Then he seized that sleeping
infant from its cradle, and held it at
arm's length almost to the blazing
fire, so that the . terrified moth
er expected to see its little garments
catch the flame.
"Xow then, where is the money ?
Speak out quick, or hear your baby
shriek with pain. I will burn it to
death before your eyes if you do not
tell me where the money is.
you will know me again." And he
advanced upon her.
(), sir, let me live. Have you
not done enough to take my hus
band's money, without depriving
him of his wife too ? I will never
say one word, against you if you
will only spare me, only spare me !"

He reached out his hand to grasp
Milly. Hut the instinct of scltcpres
ervation was strong upon her. She
evaded him, flew to the chimney-
Stadtholder to preach the next Sun

dition that they should all attend
and take no offence ; and giving as
his text the account of l'Juhp ana
piece, snatched her husbands loaded j the officer of Queen Candace, he
rifle from the hook on . which it
hung, cocked and presented it at
the breast of the robber. Her mo
tions were so rapid, that before he
could prevent it, her finger had
pressed the trigger and there was
an explosion. But with equal readi
ness the man hail stepped aside, the
ball passing over his head, and the
next instant his gripe was on her

he said. " You would have killed

a deep-toned voice. .' Unhand that

A powerful man stood in the door
way. He dealt the robber a blow
between the eyes which struck him
back into the entry. Ills grasp on
Milly was relinquished, and she fell
to the floor.
" O, sir," she cried to the new
comer, "save me ! This man lias
robbed us, and would murder me
that I would not tell of it."
" Fear not madam, he shall not
harm you," responded the stranger.
"Fellow, surrender yourself!"
" Get out of the way," cried the
robber, making a rush tor the door,
and striking at the stranger with a
bowie knife. Giving back a few
steps, the stranger seized the robber
by the collar, whirled him around

Watering Teams. : Joseph
Harris says : How many times a
day does the ploughman or driver
of a team in the harvest field slake
his thirst? Does it not occur to
him that the horses or oxen, which
have been severely taxed with labor,
and have possibly been profusely

take more than is proper for them,
and many a fit of colic is occasioneil
thereby. The practice of watering,
at least once between feeds in tho
morning and again in the afternoon,
should be regularly followed, and.
if fifteen minutes is thereby lost tt
the plow, it will be more than made
up in the renewed vigor with which
the team will take hold on its re-
turn. - . . -
