The mascu-'line members of the family were inclined i' to be dubious as to its advantages. The chief objection which we had to it was that it waSene of a rovhof eight, all ex-actly alike, and it was extremely difficuJJ .to be sure of the right door. ; ' A week's practice, however, made that all right; ours was theourth house from the south end of the row; as I walked from the office along the street immediately south of us, I soon became accustomed to taking the exact number of steps, after turning the corner, which j would bring me to the door. Besides, toe hour at which I came home "(I am a proof reader on a morning paper and my duties usually kept me at the office until after 8 a. m.) made At necessary for me to carry a latchkey. While I Jmew that of course our neighbors had exactly the same conveniences which we enjoy.ed.and looked for light to windows in the same portion of exactly similar rooms, and experienced the annoyance of smoky chimneys when the wind was in $ho particular quarter which affected ours, I did not dseam that the houses were so precisely the same that the key of one would oihlock the other. -r:--. " We had Jived hero about a week when the street car line near by began running owJ cars. This was a boon for me, as it saved me a walk of some length. The car lino ran within half a square of the house, being on the next street north of us. . ' p i:-, fr-m-vff -. ' The first night that I rode homo I was so sleepy when 1 got out of the car that I .scarcely knew what I was doing, Hith-erto the exercise of walking had kept me wideawake until I got into my own room, I managed to unlock the front door, liowever, and get upstairs, habit making my movements noiseless, as I knew that lay mother was easily awakened and did not readily go to sleep again. - The room which I occupied was over &e dining room, the door being nearly - opposite to the head of the stairs. Somewhat to my surprise the gas was not burning on tne landing; the girls bad ' probably forgotten to light it before go--iflg to bed, I groped my way carefully and cautiously, and the burglar enters I THE QUEST. the room.

Evidently the dark lantern was not In working order, however, for be 6imply struck a match. The little flame showed me that our new neighbors were not unfounded upon reason this was one of them. They were certainly a gang of burglars, i lie made a step toward the dresses. To reach it he must pass me. He was within reach of my arm. I raised my weapon, and, uttering the loudest scream of which my lungs were capable, I struck bim on the side of the head. He fell like a log to the floor. Horrors! I had killed himl - v ' " '' ": ' " ' : My - renewed screams alarmed 1 the house and the others were speedily .by my side. I had already lighted the gas and was on my knees beside the man that I had struck, vainly endeavoring to recall life. My assortment of restoratives, I was afterward assured, was sufficient to have revived a dozen swooning men. j "What in the world" began myj brother as he appeared upon the scene.) n. , 1 A! , .

But that man isn't dead." ! As if to confirm his words, the burglar just then opened his eyes and looked inquiringly around him. , "He looks dazed," I whispered to Tom. "He has occasion to look dazed if you hit him with your beloved poker," rejoined Tom, pushing me aside and applying restoratives in his turn; "put it where it belongs, and go get me some brandy or whisky, or something of the kind. We'll have to get this fellow on his feet before we call the police." "I I was mistaken, sir," said the burglar in a feeble voice, but with a very decided manner. "I was mistaken in the house. It appears that the same latchkey unlocks both doors, and I got the wrong one." . ' "Yes, I think you did," rejoined Tom, emphatically, and eyeing bun with suspicion. , The burglar managed to scramble to his feet, although I could see he was still dizzy from the encounter with my poker. I retired into the closet and held the door shut that is very nearly. I think that you will do me the favor 'FROM TM HOSPITAL" - i Tes said ths Eev. Mr. Dibble. "I knew I could depend upon the hospitality of my flock to entertain this excellent young divine, seeing that my own boose- hold is In so disorganized a condition, owing to the exigencies 'of 'cleaning house.' It will be only for a night or two, and we all know what Is promised to those who receive the angel unawares. . And Mr, Dibble rapbed his hands and looked smillntrlv around nnon the mem bers of the Young Ladies' Aid association. wane a very percepu pie murmur or assent rose up from the aggregate collection of earls, bangs, " frizzed . bahjahd crimped laces. , ' : ? ..; -1. : Not a damsel in the number bnt would gladly have extended her gracious hospitality to the.

"I'm sure,' said Miss Lida Larkspur, promptly anticipating the crisis, "papa, would be most happy to receive the gen tleman!" i While the other ladies looked indie- nantly first at Miss Lida, then at each other, and whispered, "Bold thing!" f "Most kind of you to promise It, 1m sure, said Air. Nibble, and so the matter was settled, not at all to the general satis- iaction. t... .- . And Lida Larkspur went home and is sued orders that the parlor curtains should be washed and ironed, and a pound cake of the richest nature concocted. While Kate Duer, the doctor's sister, who was as fond of young clergymen as Lida herself, and would in no wise have objected to varying the monotony of her home life with a spice of ecclesiastical novelty, returned to her crochet work with a yawn and a general impression that life was a bore. .-: "We are to have a young lecturer from the city in the church on Sunday even ing, she said to her brother when he bustled in to dinner.

I , was always rated . courageous; I seemed to lack that instinctive fear which causes some to shrink from darkness and loneliness. My brothers and sisters often declared that I would never be friehtened; not even,' added May, with a shudder, if a burglar were to present himself before me and demand my valuables. ? These would not tempt any well regulated burglar, being small and of little inti-insic value; but I should not like to lose them, and I have always determined to defend my property stoutly if threatened, providing, of course, that I had sufficient warning of the robber's intentions to enable mo to act. 1 - I awoke one morning at that proverbial darkest hour, just before the dawn. I had no idea what ' time it was, as the whnla house was wraDned in silence and darkness; it is from after events that I am able to say that it was nearly morning. I had started suddenly from sleep, but at first I could not tell what , had aroused me. ; As I lay listening for some sound to follow that which had recalled me from the land of dreams, my thoughts turned InBtSTCtively to our next door neighbors, who had been domiciled in the tow for about a week. ' ? . - . Nobody knew them, although several of the older residents had spoken of, call- ing upon them perhaps; for we liked the looks of tho ladies and they seemed inclined to bo friendly. The men, however, seemed to be home all day and away all night. They were not work-ingmen one could see that by their hands, their clothinc. their bearine and wo wero nf raid theywere not just what they should lie. We recalled certain grewsomo stories of counterfeiters, burglars and other criminals who settle in respectable neighborhoods and only excited suspicion by the unreasonable hours . which they kept. . Was that a step up the stairs? I listened more intently, my wandering thoughts recalled from all other subjects. ' Surely it was. and that was another.

I am very sorry I have disturbed the lady and probably.fright-ened her.". "It seems to me," said Tom, putting out his hand, "that the lady is perfectly well able to take care of herself, and that you ought to know it," The stranger laughed good naturedly. ' "She tried to beat it into my head, at any rate. But you will convey my apologies to her?' Tho two men went down stairs then, and I heard no more. But the blow on our neighbor's head effectually broke the ice between the two families and we be came firm friends.
