Strong and Steady
By HORATIO ALGER, JR.
An hour passed without a word beina;
poteen oy nia singular hostess. She went
to the window from llmo to time, and
looked out ns if expecting some one. At
length Walter determined to break the
Bllence, which had become onnresslve. It
did not seem natural for two persona to
by lit the same room so long without
iponKing a word.
"I should think vou would find it tntv
ly living iu the woods away from any
neighbors," ho said.
"I don't care for neighbors," said the
"Have you lived here lone?"
"That's as people reckon time," was the
"You don't have far to go for fuel,'
was the nest remark of our hero.
"Did you say you was a book peddler?'
"I am a book agent."
"Is your business a good one?" she ak
"I have done very well so far, but then
i have been at it only a week."
"It's a good thing to have money' said
tne woman, moro to herself than to Wnl
"Yes," said Walter "it's very conven
ient to have money; but there are other
Ihings that nre better."
"Such as what?" demanded the woman
. "Good health, and a good conscience."
She laughed scornfully.
"I'll tell you there's nothing so good
as money. I've wanted it all my life,
and never could get It Do you think I
would live here in the woods if I had
money? No, I should like to be a lady
and wear fine clothes, and drive alKut
In. a handsome carriage. Why are Home
people so lucky, while. I live in this mis
erable hole?" V
"Perhaps your luck will change some
day," he said, though he had little iaith
In. his own words. He wondered how the
tail, gaunt woman of the backwoods would
look dressed in silks and satins.
"My luck never will change," she said,
quickly. "I must live and die in some
such hovel as this."
"My luck has changed." said Walter,
quietly; "but In a different way."
"How?" she asked, betraying in her
tone some curiosity.
"A year ago six months ago my fath'
er was a rich man, or was considered so,
He was thought to be worth over a hun
dred thousand dollars. All at once his
property was swept away, and now I am
obliged to earn my own living, as you

uy speculating In mines."
"The more fool he!"
"My father Is dead," said Walter,
Cracely. "I cannot bear to hear him
"Humph!" ejaculated the woman,
expect you are hungry."
"Xes," said Walter, "I am; but I can
Walt till your husband comes."
She took out from a small cupboard a
plate of bread and some cold meat, and
laid them on the table. Then she steep
ed some tea, and, when it was ready, she
put that also on the table. Walter un
derstood from this that supper was ready,
-and, putting on his shoes, which were
now dry, he moved his chair up.
The woman poured him out some tea
in one of the cracked cups.
The first sip of the tea, which was
4uite strong, nearly caused a wry ex
pression on Walter's face, but he man
aged to control himself so far as not to
betray his want of relish for the bev
erage his hostess offered him. The only
redeeming quality it had was that it
was hot. and, exposed as he had been
to the storm, warm drink was agree
able. "There's some bread and there's some
meat," said the woman. "You can help
Walter ate heartily of -the food, and
succeeded In emptying his cup of tea.
Ho would have taken another cup If there
bad been milk and sugar, but St wa stoo
bitter, to be inviting.
Walter pushed his chair from the table,
end sat down again before the fire. She
rose and cleared the table, replacing the
bread and meat in the cupboard. There
was silence for another hour. Walter
wished it were time to go to bed, for
the presence of such a woman made him
feel uncomfortable. But it was too early
yet to suggest retiring. At length the
eilence was broken by a step outside.
"That's Jack," said the woman, rising
hastily; and over ber face there came a
transient gleam of satisfaction, the first
Walter had observed.
Before she coujd reach the door it was
opened, and Jack entered. Walter look
ed up with some curiosity to see what
sort of a man the husband of this woman
'might be. He saw a Btout man, with low
ering eyes, and matter red bair and
"They are fitly mated," thought our
The man stopped short as his glance
rested upon Walter, and ho turned
quickly to his wife.
"Who have you got here, Meg?" he
asked, In a rough voice.
"He was overtaken by the storm, and
wanted me to take him in, and give him
supper and lodging."
"He's a boy. What brings him Into
"He says he's a book peddler."
"Where are his books?"
"I have sold them all." said Walter,
eellng called upon to take a personal
share in the conversation.
"How many did you have?"
"How much did yon charge for them?"
"Three dollars and a half apiece."
"That's seventy dollars, Isn't It?"
"Well, you can stay here all night If
you want to. We ain't used to keepin' a
avern. but you'll fare as well as we."
"Thank you. J was afraid I bight
have to stay out all night."
While his wife was getting out the
supper again, the man sat down beside

In fact, there was absolutely no article

What shall I do?" thought Walter.
'That man can enter the room when I
am asleep, and rob me of all my money."
Looking about the room, he noticed a
closet, the door of which was bolted on
the outside. Withdrawing the bolt, he
opened the door and looked in. It was
nearly empty, containing only a few
articles of little or no value. A plan of
operations rapidly suggested Itself to Wal
ter in case tho room should be entered
while ho was asleep. In pursuance of
this plan he threw a few pennies upon
the floor of the closet, and then closed
the door again. Next he drew from his
pocketbook all the money it contained,
except a single five-dollar bill. The bank
notes thus removed amounted to fifty-
five dollars. He then drew off his stock
ings, and, laying the bills in the bottom.
again put them on.
Walter's feelings, as he lay on his
hard bed on the floor, were far from
pleasant. He was not sure that an at
tempt would be made to rob bim, but the
probability seemed so great that be could
not compose himself to sleep. Suspense
was so painful that lie almost wished that
Jack would come up if he intended to.
He was tired, but his mental anxiety tri
umphed over his bodily fatigue, and he
tossed about restlessly.
It was about nine o'clock when he went
to bed. Two hours passed, and still there
were no signs of the apprehended Inva
sion. But, five minutes later, c heavy
step was heard upon the staircase, which
crpaked beneath the weight of the man
