a gang of twelve wot's working these

And the burglar wept like a child.
"This. I presume, Ls Keinorse,"
said old Reginald.
' "No. guv'nor, it ain't remorse, it's

i "The same thing," aid Reginald,
j "It ain't the beiiig i4 burglar that I
object to ; It's the havfug to commit
burglaries. I like the credit of it, sir :
t's the danger I object to."
"Now, by the laws of our gang.
We're bound to crack cribs in turn ;
that is to say. one of us cracks the crib,
while the other eleven stop outside and
give the office. "
"I thought burglars always worked
in twos or threes?" said old Reginald.
"P'raps I might to know best, "sug
gested the burglar.
"Perhaps voil are right. Indeed. I
am sure you ought. W hat crib do you
propose to crack to-night ?"
"This here one."
"Oh .'" and old Reginald prepared
to ring the bell,
"Please don't do tlmt. guv'nor.
You ain't a goin' to give me into ciis-

"No, no, guv'nor. don't do that.

"I haully see my way." said old
Reginald, thought fully. "8(111, if I

"Look here, gnv'tior. each member
of our gang is bound to get (illy pounds
worth of swag trom each crib he cracks :
ii ue (ton t lie s snot. .Now I set) a
handsome salver and collee pot and
cream jug as came 111 here. Wot
might he the value of that handsome
silver salver mid collee pot?"
"The cream jug is electro. The cof
fee pot, with sugar basin and salver,
may be worth live and forty pounds."
"That is near enough. I'll take 'em
Here is a tliinsvfor fifty iiukl."
And he hMidcd old Reginald a bank
note for the amount.
"Still I don't quite understand "
"I want you. guv'nor, tolie sogood
as to leave your bed room window
open to-night, and plain that salver
and them silver traps where I can get
'em. I shall have cracked my crib,
liagged my swag, and made myself
sale until my turn comes round again."
"Certaluly," said old Reginald,
holding up the note to the light. "But
let me ak how can you afford to pay
so handsomely tor your depredation?"
"There area dozen onus, sir. Kadi

months, and each swags at least fifty

least tliat. List quarter tlie twelve

And the honest fellow tooka receipt
lor the note and departed.
Old Reginald was as good as his
word. He left bs bed room window
open and placed the salver there, and
at i o'clock in re morning the honest
burglar came and found it.
M) tar all was simple and straight

The fifty pound note was part ol j
the proceeds of a previous burglary. !
The number of the note was known, i
ami traeeii to old JteginaM. who had
to account for its being in his possess
ion. .Vow the twelve burglars had. in tlie
meantime, been arrested by the police
(this is also incredible,) and were con
demned to penal servitude for life.
So old Reginald had no hesitation
in stilting tlie facts as 1 have recited

discovered tlie whole thing, coffee pot,
salver, and all. the commonest electro.
was so shocked at old RirlnW'
dishonesty that not only did he decline '
to corroborate his story, hut actually,
and I think very properly, identified
him as an accomplice.
And old Reginald was also senten
ced to eiml servitude, and he and the
honest burglar worked for many years
together on the same works, and had
many opportunities of talking the mat

Husbands and their Wives.
Some husbands never leave home in
the morning without kissing their
wives and bidding them "good-bye,"
In the tones of unwearied love, and
whether it he policy or fact, it lias all
the effect of fact, and those homes are
generally pleasant ones, provided al
ways, that the wives ore appreciative,
and welcome the discipline in a kind
ly spirit. We know an old gentleman
who lived with his wife over till ir
years, and never left home without tho j
kiss and the "good-bye." Some hus

anything at all. hut turn round at the I
