Polly was light aad graceful and agile, so to scramble from the back of tho big chair to tJhe top of the bookcase wns but the work of a moment. The little door wliich was sunken hi the wall above was of black oak, richly carved. Polly searched it closely to see if she could find any possible way to open it. Suddenly, almost by chance, her fingers touched a little spot iu tho eye of one of the carved griffins, a, spring clicked and the door flow open in her face, Polly gave a scream and sank down upon Uie top of the bookcase.
