HEN John and I were married we began housekeeping in one of the flats down near the "ferry." People said we were foolish to try to run an establishment of our own on a thousand-dollar salary; but John neither smoked nor drank. T) and my mother had taught me all the little economies of housekeeping, so we managed to get along nicely, and every month something was added to our nest-egg in the savings bank. Job Shultz, who for years had been fireman down at the china pottery works, occupied half of the flat we had taken, and though both he and his wife belonged to the uneducated, hardworking class of German emigrants. they were sober and honest, and proved to be very good neighbors indeed. By some strange freak of nature their twin children, Franz and G retch- en, were born mutes. When we formed their acquaintance they were about eight years oid, and seemed to enter into all the sports of childhood with as much zest as their more noisy companions. Still, it was pathetic to watch the little things going round so silently, and it was out of sheer pity for their forlorn condition that John and I undertook to master the deaf aud dumb alphabet. "Johiv learned rapidly but it was a long time before I could make my fin- speak so as to carry on a conversation intelligently. My final triumph gave as much pleasure to the little "Dutchies" as to myself, and, as I shall show you, 'I was afterwards amply repaid for all the pains I took to give them enjoyment. We had been married five years, and, in spite of the gloomy prophecies of some of our would-be advisors, John was junior member of. the firm that had once employed him, and the suite of rooms in tho flat had been exchanged for a pleasant residence in a very respectable part of the city. John looked after the business interests of the concern, and as ho was obliged to take many unexpected trips, I was often .left for several days at a time with no other company than the servants. I protesled a little at first, but I was reasonable, and soon became accustomed to the loneliness. One cold, stormy night in February, just after the shutters had been closed and the curtains drawn, John came in hurriedly, and, without speaking, went quickly upstairs. I was surprised, for he did not usually leave the store until eight o'clock, and it t felt a queer fluttering its tile t §gitm of ftif heart when John kiasedfrte goott-bye, but 1 made inySelf belief that 1 was very brave, and at ftvy rfcg- uiaf tune for retiring went to toy fobrn< cautioning Abrani, ail itslial, ttf see that the doors were &11 securely fastened.. After I 'went Upstairs I weakened a little, and was on the point of calling Betty to sleep in my room; but, fearing that John would laugh at my cowardice f I summoned all my courage to my aid and was soon sleeping as peacefully as a baby. 1 must have slept soundly, or would have heard the creak of the wardrobe door and the stealthy step of the tall, lank figure that emerged therefrom. As it was, the first intimation that I had of the presence of ^n unwelcome gtiest was a hoarse whisper in my ear: "Where is that iron box which ybur husband brought home from the store this evening?" Opening my eyes, I was almost par- alyxed to see bending over me a hideous face, the most fiendish plie I had ever seen. There was a bright fife iii the grate, and I had a fair view of the villian; but before I could move or utter a cry, the cold mimleof a revolver was pressed against my head, and the same voice fussed, "Stir or make a noise at your peril! You are in my power, but it' you do as I tell you, I will not harm you in the least. I want the money in that box, and, fail' or foul, I intend to have it." Fully realizing my helpless situation, I told him where it was. hoping that in some way I might make my escape when his back was turned. I was just measuring the distance to the door with my eye, and wondering if it were possible for me to reach it unseen, when a key turned in the hall door below, and my heart throbbed hopefully; for that light, quick step that came bounding up tho stairs could belong to no one but John. In an instant the robber was back among the curtains at the head of my bed, and just as John opened the door ho whispered: "If you betray me in any way I will kill you both." "I left my watch lying on the bureau, and us the train is an hour behind time I concluded to run back aud get it," John said by way of explanation. "If there is anything in the world that a-man hates when traveling, it is to be without a timepiece." "Did you find it?" I asked, huskily, hoping that he would request my assistance in the search. "Yes, here it is, all right. Don't get out of bed, dear, you will catch a chill. How are you getting along?" returned John. "The stupid fellow!" I thought. "Why will he not give me a chance?" but my lips faltered. "Very well." Then, as our eyes met, I said with .my lingers: "For Heaven's sake, do not leave me, John. There is a robber behind the curtains of my bed; but he will kill us both if we try to escape." Without seeming to notice what I had said, John turned round and replenished the fire, saying as he did so:— "You must keep a good fire all night, Marion. It will keep you from feeling lonely in my absence. Abram must bring" another bucket of coal before he goes to bed." With the poker in his hand he crossed the room and touched the call- bell; then, taking up his stand before the lire, he said with his fingers: "Rest easy dear; "I'll not leave you alone for a moment." Directly after, Abram made his appearance, and John sent him for the coal, calling after him to bring the heavy shovel, that the fire might be securely covered. When the big, stout fellow returned, John said aloud:. '-'Marion, please jump up and find that package you wished me to leave with cousin Marie.. 1 may have time to run across the river when I am in Chicago." I did not wait for any other command, but sprang past John into tho wardrobe, just as he said; "Seize the shovel Abram, and help me to brain that scoundrel who is hiding away behind the bed curtains 1 " Abram 'Obeyed, and then John spoke again; this time to the man who was "TOMB AKD WtPffi" .tALMAdte Wtilf fe§ HIS the Eastern Iftdl* fcten tfits fethldpm" tc*t fa* ill* Sftrtttcffi the Glided fcaiftcel ID! 5? HIS Ste&Mott through the press, dated Brooklyn, Jan. 0, tor. Talmage writes as follows: In all the Bible this is the only book in which the word India occurs, blit it stands for a realm of Vast interest in the time of Esther as itt our lime. It yielded then as now spices, and silks, and cotton, and rice, and indigo, and ores of all richness, and precious stones of all sparkle, and had a civilization of its ott'U as marked as Egyptian or Grecian or Roman civ- 1 ilization. It holds the costliest tomb ever built, and the most unique and idolatrous temple ever opened. For practical lessons, in this my sixth discourse in " 'round the world" series, I show you that tomb and temple of India. In a journey around the world it may not bo easy to tell the exact poidt which divides the pilgrimage into halves. But there was one structure toward, which we were all the time traveling, and having seen that, we feJt that if we saw nothing more, o.ur expedition would be a success. That one object was the Taj Mahal of India. It is the crown of the whole earth. The spirits of architecture met to enthrone a king, and the spirit of the Parthenon of Athens was there; 'and the spirit of St. Sophia of Constantinople was there; and the spirit of St. Izaak of St. Petersburg was there; and the spirit of the Bapistery of Pisa was there; and the spirits of the Great Pyramid, and of Luxor Obelisk, and of fifst Snxfotis 86at, tdtfSegfftli6« MsSst MoMfles Chftsteltteil, and B -~ j s —,Since geriifftdrc' cnifel €u$ it§ , b* painter's ffeneil . figure, Or mason's t>lnlflb its first Wfttl, or Architect's compass swept its ,fli"st circle. The f6j has sixteen great afcned windows, fou? «!• each •eo'.rhef 1 . Also at each of the fouf Corner's b! the 1 ^aj stahds a hiinaret IS? feet high. Also at eacli Side of this building is a eplen-< did mosqiie of red Sandstone. Two hundred and fifty years lias the Taj stood, aud yet not a wall is cracked) nor a mosaic loosehed, nofr an arch • sagged, nor a panel dulled. The storms pf 250 winters have not marred, nor the heats of 5?50 summers disintegrated a marble. T'hefc is nb story of age Written by mosses on its White sUrfacCi Montaz, the qticeh, Was beautiful, and Shah Jehan, the king, here proposed to let all the centuries of time know it. SHe Was married at 20 years of age and died at 29. Her 1 life ended as another life begah; as the rose bloomed the rose bush perished. To adorn this dormitory of the dead, at the command of the king, Bagdad sent to this building its cornelian, and Ceylon its lapis lazuli, and Punjab its jasper, and Persia its amethyst, and Thibet its turquoise, and Lanka its sapphire, and Yemen its apate. and Punah its diamonds; and blood-stones, and sardonyx, and chalcedony, and moss agates are as common as though they were pebbles. You find one spray of vine beset with eighty and another with one hundred stones. Twenty thousand men were t\venty years in building it, and although the labor was slave labor, and not paid for, the building cost what would be about $60,000,000 of'our American money, fc'omc of the jewels have been picked out of the wall by iconoclasts or conquerors, and substitutes of less value have taken their places; but the vines, the traceries, the barab- esqucs, the spandrels, the entablatures are so wondrous that you feel like dating the rest of your life from the day you first saw them. Tn letters of black mar- the Porcelain Tower of Nankin, and of j |j le tue w hole of the Koran is spelled St. Mark's of Venice; and the spirits of all the great towers, great cathedrals, great mausoleums, great sarcophagi, great capitols for the living, and of great necropolises for the dead, were there And the presiding genius of the throng with gavel of Parian marble smote the table of Russian malachite, and called the spirits to order, and called a vote as to which spirit should wear the chief crown, and mount the chief throne, and wave the chief scepter, and by unanimous acclaim the cry was: "Long IWe the out in and on this august pile. The king sleeps in the tomb beside the queen, although he intended to build a palace as black as this was white on the opposite side of the river for himself to sleep in. Indeed, the foundation of such a necropolis of black marble is still there, aud from the white to the black temple of the dead a bridge was to cross; but the son dethroned him and imprisoned him, and it is wonderful that the kiny had' any place at all in which to be buried.

When he came into the parlor a few minutes later I inquired anxiously if he was ill. Before answering me he closed the door leading into the living room, arid then, drawing a chair close up to mine, he said in a low voice:— "I did not mean to say anything to you about it, Marion, but you are such a brave little woman I am sure I can trust you. "An attempt to blow the safe was made last night, and the adroit way in which the would-be burglar managed to cover up his work leads us to anticipate a repetition of the visit tonight; in order io thwart the gentlemen's designs I have brought the money, and valuables home, and Uaye put the box containing the treasure in the lower drawer of the secretary that 'stands in our room." •'•'How muoh money is there in it?" I asJied, trying to speak in/my natural voice. ,' "Nearly fifteen thousand," answered John, in a whisper, "Why didn't you put it in the bank fop sake keeping?" I asked, uneasily. "That was the arrangement; but Brown, the assisant cashier, whose Business it was to Attend to it, forgot Jiis errand until the bank was closed," replied John, "Don't worry anything ftbout it, dear. You are the only one outside of the firm who knows what disposition has been made of themoiv ey, and to-morrow it >vill be placed, in •$\& bank." I was satisfied with tjie explanation, thought no more about the box upstairs until after the clock had, warned for nine, and it is not probable tjbat i.woulfl have thought of it then , Jiad not John been ordered off pn one of his midnight journeys. Just before jie started he put the &ey in roy hand. paying:—- • ^Jv. BJoAvvy calls for the giye him tins, I \vill Jipt be j- time to, look after bj^k Closes tp-morrgjy," waiting among the shadows to despoil our home. "Step out and show your guilty face if you wish to leave the room alive," he commanded, in a tone of authority. The next minute the wretch stood before John, begging piteously for his worthless life. When the mask was torn off John stenped back in amazement, for in the features of the outlaw he recognized tho assistant cashier. Henry Brown, He pleaded for mercy, and I, womanlike, added my tears to his petition, but John said the ^v'must take its course, and gave him into the hands of a policeman for safe keeping. The fellow hadbeen on the alert, and so had kept trace of the disappearance of the money, and naturally enough had followed it up. It afterwards came out that John's despatch to proceed to Chicago at once was a clever forgery, of which Brown knew more than he was willing to tell, It was a long time before I recover' ed from the shock I received that n'ight, and to this day John has never asked me to stay alone during his ab^ sence, On account of some blunder on the part of the State's attorney, JJrpwn was not brought to trial, but U» was wise enough to leave the city, and so far'as I know )ie has never made his appearance in the neighborhood since. $ever a day passes that I do not thjnk of o«r little silent .German friends,-and of the bussing that came to ns though the' kindness ghown to, them, our expectation rose until we some thought that we might be disappointed at the first glimpse, as some say they were disappointed. But how can any one be disappointed with the Taj is almost as great a wonder to me as the Taj itself. There are some people always disappointed, and who knows but that having entered heaven they may criticise the architecture of the temple, and the cut of the white robes, and say that the river of life is not quite up to their expectations, and that the white horses on which the conquerors ride seem a little spring- halt or spavined? My son said, "There it is!" I said, "Where?" For that which he saw to be the building seemed to me to be more like the morn- ' ing cloud blushing under the ] stare of the rising sun. It seemed not so much built up from earth as let down from heaven. Fortunately, you stop at an elaborated gateway of red sandstone one eighth of a mile from the Taj, an entrance so high, so arched, j so graceful, so four domed, so painted and chiseled and scrolled that you come very gradually upon the Taj, which structure is enough to intoxicate the eye, and stun the imagination, and entrance the soul. We go up the winding stairs of this majestic entrance of the gateway, and buy a few pictures and examine a few curios, and from it look off upon the Taj, and descend to the pavement of the, garden that raptures everything between the gateway and the ecstasy pf mar ble and precious stones. You pass along a deep stream of water in which all manner of brilliant fins swirl and flpat, There are eighty-four fountains that spout- and bend, and arch themselves to fall in showers of pearl in basins of snowy whiteness. Beds of ail imaginable flora greet the nostril before they do the eye, and seem to roll in waves pf colors as yon advance toward the visjpn you are soon to have pf what human genius did when it did its best; moon flowers, lilac, marigolds, tulips, and almost everywhere the lotus; thickets' of bewildering bloom; on either side trees from many lands bend their aborescence ov^r your head, or seen* with convoluted branches to reach out their arms toward yon in we.leome.

Veteran .Editor, promptly—J would advise him to sit qpw», ajndwait far times |o catca »ap,«-prake's In these Elephanta Caves everything is on a Samsonian and Titanian scale. With chisels that were dropped from nerveless hands at least eight centuries ago, the forms of the gods Brahma, and Vishnu, and Siva were cut into the everlasting rock. Siva is here repiesented by a figure sixteen feet nine inches high one half man and one half woman. Run a line from the forehead straight to tho floor of the rock, and you divide this idol into masculine and.feminine. Admired as this idol is by many, it was to me about the worst thing that was ever cut into porphyry, perhaps because there is hardly anything on earth so objectionable as a being half man and half woman. Do be one or the other, my hearer. Man is admirable, and woman is admirable, but either in flesh or trap rock a compromise of the two is hideous. Save us from effeminate men and masculine women. Yonder is the King Havana worshipping. Yonder is the sculptured representation of the marriage of Shiva and Karhati. Yonder is Daksha, the son of Brahma, born from the thumb of his right hand. He had sixty daughters. Seventeen of those daughters were married to Kasyapa and became mothers of the human race. ' Yonder is a god with three:hfads. The center god has a crown wound with necklaces of skulls, The right hand god is in a paroxysm of rage, with forehead of snakes, and in his hand is a cpbra. The left hand god has pleasure in all its features and the hand has a flower, But there are gods and goddesses in all directions. The chief temple of this rock • is 130 feet square and has twenty-six pillars rising to the roof. After the conquerors of other lands, and the tourists from all lands have chipped, and defaced, and blasted, and carried away curios and mementos for museums and homes, there are enough enhancements left to detain one, unless he is cautious, until he is down with some of the malarias which encompass this land, or get bitten with spme of its snakes. Yes, I felt the chilly dampness of the place, and left this congress of gods, thia pandemon' ium of demons, this pantheon of in' different deities, and game to the steps and looked off upon the waters which rolled and flashed, around the steam yacht that was waiting to with us tp Bpmbay, AS we stepp minds filled with 'the "" Ifafid Iffia 4 im< stitrg Maker Cfti-ey ittafcf timte'd at Sefaflipdfe- India, translating tke BioIS lnk» ft* ty different dialects, attd ie'avifi hifi Worliotit body amid the fiatftes he had cotte tb saVe*, attd going tip into the heatenS from which" he cafl better" watch 1 all the field— tliat •frorfi will be completed in the saltation of" the mill' ions Of Ihdia; and beside hifai gaaiiig from the same high places stand Bishop ttebef, and Alexander Duff, and John Scudder t and Maclcay, Svho fell at Delhij atd Mohleieff, tvho fell at Cawnpore, and Polehampton, who fell at LuckhdW, and Freeman, Who fell at Fiittyghur,and all heroes and heroines •who, for Christ's sake, lived ahd died for the Christianiaatkm of India! aild their heaven Will hot be complete until the Ganges that washes tho Ghats of heathen temples shall roll between churches of the livihg God, and the trampled womanhood of Ilindooism shall have nil the rights purchased by him who amid tho cuts and stabs of his or.-n assassination cried out: "Behold thy motherl" arid from Bengal Bay to Arabian ocean, and from the Himalayas to the coast of Coromandel there bo lifted hosannas to Him who died to redeem all nations.

If any clergyman asks mo, ns an unbelieving minister of religion once asked the duko of Wellington, "Do you not think the work of converting the Hindoos is till a practical farce?" I answer him as AVellington answered the unbelieving minister: "Look to your marching orders, sir!" Or if any one having joined in the gospel attack feels like retreating, I say tp him, as Gen. Havelock said to a retreating regiment, "The enemy are in front, not in the rear," and leading them again into the fight, though two horses had been shot under him. Indeed, the taking of this world for Christ will be no holiday celebration, but as tremendous as when in India during the mutiny of 1857, a fortress manned by Sepoys was to be captured by Sir Colin Campbell and the army of Britain. The Sepoys hurled upon the attacking columns burning missiles, and grenades, and fired on them shot and shell, and poured on them from the ramparts burning oil, until, a writer who witnessed it says, "It was a picture of pandemonium." Then Sir Colin addressed his troops, saying, "Remember the women and children must be rescued!" and his men replied: "Ay! Ay! Sir Colin! We stood by you at Balaklava, and will stand by you here!" And then came the triumphant assault of the battlements. So in this gospel campaign which proposes capturing the very last citadel of idolatry and sin, and hoisting over it the banner of the cross, we may have huivled upon us mighty opposition, and scorn, and obloquy, and many may fall before the work is done, yet at every call for new onset, let the cry of the church be "Ay! ay! Great captain of our salvation; we stood by thee in other conflicts, and we will stand by thee to the last!" And then, if not in this world, then from the battlements of the next, as the last Appolyonic fortification shall crash into ruin, we will join in the shout: "Thanks be unto God who giveth us the victory!"
