"I d) not know," lie answered.
The gentleman who called upon me
to make arrangements for the storing

rather loud tone f voice, and when
he went out I noticed several of the
clerks near the door."

I answered,.
After some further conversation he
dismissed me, saying as he did so :
You have been a faithful watch-

will exercise the necessary vigilance

I drew in a'deep breath, and par- I
tially opened my eyes. I saw a man :
in the back of the store fumbling in a
closet; in a moment he turned and
approached the place where I was.
lying. He wore a false face, but I
was sure that his form was familiar ;
in one hand he held a dark lantern, in
the other a ball of stout cord, com-
monly called bull twine,
He placed the lantern on a box and
proceeded to unwind several feet from
the ball of twine. Just at this point
he was compelled to sneeze, and thro'
my partially closed lids I saw him re-
move the false face and wipe his nose.
That acdon gave me a full view of his
features, and I readily recognized him
as one oi the porters belonging to the
estaobishneunt; a quarrelsome, disa-
greeable feliew, called, from his pugil-
istic propensities, "'i ,, Ioe.,,
kL turned his back to me for a mo-
ment, and I made a strong effort to
throw oi the influence of the drug,
but in vain; my mind seemed per-
fectly clear, but my body ,as as pow-
erless as though it had been dead. I
was not deprived of the sense of sight,
but I could neither quite open noi
close my eyes
1 saw Joe divide the cord into three
sections, each about four feet in length,
with a long, murderous-looking knife,
such as butches use in large slaugh-
ter houses. He next proceeded to
bind my right arm to one leg of the
couch. Another string he fastened
to my left arm, fastening it to the
other leg. With the remaining cord
he bound my feet together and fasten-
ed them down by bindinga rope around
then and fastening eaca end to a leg
of the couch. I was thus firmly se-
cured, and absolutely in his power.
He then took up his lantern and went
down into the cellar.
When he was gone my strength
gradually returned, and I endeavored
to eseLp, from my fastening, but tha
rogue had done his work well. In
about ten minutes, which seemed as
many hours to me, so burdened was
I with anxiety and dread, he returned,
bearing in his arms one of the boxes
of gold.
kie examined my fastening closely,.
and seeing that I was conscious, in-
quired in a disguised voice if recog-
nized him ?
"Yes sir," I replied your are
' Thumping Joe,' and half-a-dozen de-
tectives will be on your track half an.
hour after 1 am released."
With an oath he grasped the gleam-
ing knife and made a motion as if he
would plunge it into my breast; i ut
an equally fiendish purpose had oc-
curred to him, and he disisted from
his purpose.
Having rolled half a barrel of gun-
powder under my couch and bored a
small hole in it with an augar, he
drove the barrel of my revolver into
the hole, almost up to the hammer.
He then took some of the twine irom
his pocket and tying one end to the
trigger, arew the other through the
hoxe in the ceiling and attached it to
a heavy weight, so that it hung about
i wo feet from the floor. He then set
the alarm of the clock so that it would
go on in about an hour.
Having baianced the weight attach-
Ad to the cord on the edge of a box
aoout aour 'eet high, so that 'the least
puil would cause it to fall of, lie at-
(achdt one end of a fine cord to the
hammer or striker of the clock, and
the other to the weight, carefully
tightening it. By this time I wau
able to comp'rehead his actions; when
the alarm struck it would caasu thy
weight to fall from the box; that
would pull the trigger of the revolver
and send a stream of rire into the pow-
der-and Heaven only knows what
would have been the result.
Having arranged things to his satis-
faction, he cocked the revolver and
asked me what i thought o his plan,
"It is ingenious-territly 1:,geui
ous," I replied.
'"I am sorry I shall be obliged to
shorten your days," said he, but ne-
cessity knows no law."
But Joe," said I, "why need you
add the crime of murder to the list ot


your sin? God knows it will be long
and black enough without being blood-
stained."
Oh, I don't consider this murder,
the clock is going to, do the killing,
not I.
SIt is l -_U

"To you it will be, but not to me
"Joe, cut the string that is attached
to that weight, and I solemnly vow
never to reveal that you are the rob-
ber," said I, blushing as I made the
offer.
Can't trust you. 'Dead men tell
no tales."
Joe, I have a daughter who looks
to me for her support."
".1f she is young and pretty, there
will be no necessity of her starving to.
death.': said he with a satanic smile.
(He had removed the false face).
0, Joe, spare my life, Ipray you!"
"I told you I could not do it. I
must be going; time is precious;
good- bye." With these words he took
up ius box .,i gold, and unlocking the
,.v,,', went out.
1 continued my entreaties until the,
door was closed, and then relapsed
into silence..
it was, half-past twelve, and the.
alarm was set for one, unless help
came, A. had just half an hour-thirty
miautes-1,800 seconds, to live. Oh
how short the time seemed! but if I
could only have those few minutes to.
prepare my worldly affairs, it would
be a gracious boon. In my pocket
was, two, thousand dollars in green-
back; which I had received that very
evenmg in payment of a mortgage..
it was only two, thousand dollars, but
it was all the money I had in the
word, and when the explosion cam,.
that would be scattered to the four
winds of heaven, and not one cent
would remain for my daughter-my
darling Nellie.
What would she do! God grant
that the vile insinuation made by Joe
should never be hei fate; better, a
thousand times better, death and ob-
livion.
I~apidly the minute hand was ap-
proaching 12, it seemed as though I
could ahnost see it move; already it.

out at any moment, for it is seldom
set exactly.
Tick! tick!.t tick t the seconds were
each as. valuable as. diamonds:. how I
wondered that I had never known
their worth before.
Only five minutes remained; I made
a gigantic effort to release myself, no.
use. I tried to reach down my hand.
and bite off the string attached to the
trigger, but although I nearly dis!oca-
ted my neck, it was still inches away.
Tick Ltick. tick: ony 21 minutes,
-150 seconds r.r_. .,d and no hope

The minute and a hall seon passed
away, and only one minute enterven-

menced to count the seconds, closing,
my eyes so as to shut out the sight of
the cruel hand so, frightfully near the
12.
One,.--two,,-three,,-four,- five,-
sixt-the beats seemed to be grow-
ing fainter; se.we,, eight, nine, fainter
still, ten, eleven tw-, but why didn't:
I hear it ? 0C~ld if be that the clock
had stopped.
I opened my eyes in surprise ; the,
pendulum was motionless.
I was appealed. Had the hand of
Providence entervened to spare my
life ? i thought for a time it must be
so, and my heart overflowed with
thanksgiving to the great holy Father.
This is a miricle, and the first
one hat fhs been performed in 1830
years!" I exclaimed. *"0 God -
thank thee!"
But hark! what noise is that at the
door? Heaven forbid that it should
be Joe ret:nrning t s.e why the ex-

The door opened,, and instead of

Never before had the sight of the sr.,
partner been so welcome. His quick

revolver, cut the cords that bound me

HAMILTOQN, APRIL 11, 1882.

EDITORIAL REPLY TO TYPO
OR
THE; REVIEWED REVYIWED.

In the Colonist" of last week ap
pears a scurrilous letter, purporting
to have been written by a western
American printer, assuming the "nom-
de-plume" of "Typo," apparently at
present a temporary resident in Ber-
muda. He asserts that the spirit -ot
his profession has urged him to take
up the, pen in the interests of the Ber-
mudian Press ; and yet with this em-
phatic aisSertiou still breathing upon
his lips; with all the virulence of a
vixen, he suddenly makes a vicious
and malignantly sarcastic attack up-
on the New Era, and its Editor, while
at the same time like a mercenary
mounthpiece he upholds and defends
the interests of the Gazette and
its Publisher,
He insinuates as to the inefficiency
of our English Grammar anad mental
equipment, and in so doing assumes
the competency of both judge and
critic, and the accuracy of his own
dicta, all of which, may appear to the
eagual leader as evidently correct, but
when his own letter is subjected to
the test of analysis the apparently
hidden defects will speak out for
themselves. We are not blind to the
fact that late issues of the New Era
have been defective in many respects,
inadvertently the results of only tem-
porary circumstances, and which we
expect to have remedied ere long.
After a tirade of slurring abuse he

"What conceivable excuse the New
ra hlis tor existing I should like to know ?
and he would ask his New Era brother what
he hopes to gain for himself and others by
printing iucli a sheet."
Very impertinent questions indeed,
we think; but we will allow him to
answer them himself in his subsequent
$ta.teents-as follows:
"' True, he says, the Gazette, while never
deigning to notice the yelping creature be-
1-side it, is still hastened a little in its pace by
pll this nagging and bickering of the New
Era.
An overfed horse will move faster even at
the buzzing of a gadfly ; and I suppose, by
what I hear, the Gazette in this way gives
its readers more for their money *
1' So that the nman who is persued in this
case pught to pay a good round sum to the
punster (the New Era's Editor) who keeps
his name so well before the public."
Apart from, anything else these of
themselves, aloe, are sufficient reasons
for the right of the existence of the
New Era, and positive proof, accord-
ing to the assertions of Typo, that
through its influence much, good is
Sbng done to the azette and its read-
ers, etc, Why then question its
bbirth-right and existence, why attempt
to injure our interest by belittling
oir paper in the very face of our
aipporterg, when he is, as he asserts
writmtinn the interests of the Bermu-
Oian Press. NNo man of principle,
oming here as a foreign visitor,
wold interfere in matters which he
has no business with, nor give pub-
licity to such a tirade of abuse against
a perfect stranger to himself, Who-
ever iria, he lacks the feelings of
Christie Charity. He may be only
some dissipated, soul demoralized va-
gabond with Cain's mark under his
mask, hiring himself out by the hour
as some, Cat's paw and penny-liner
to get a little of the s one thing need-
ful with which to get an occasional
\ bottle of Quixotif Elixer to wash
down thl musty. cobwebs which.
gather around the cavities Qf his
:hroat.
His letter clearly indicates his own
deficiency in, grammar and mental
eqipment i its sentiments, indefinite
in sigiit.ion, and apparently thrown
together kt random without any re-
gard to the common rules of Etymo-
i logy andSyntax, ,.
He says-" As a' printer myself when
"At home" I have a regard for the profes-
sion, &.e
What is he? we ask, "when from
home." Does he cast off his profession
as t1e snake does its skin at a certain


season of the year, or change hiscolors guage of king Agrippa-" Art thou beside

Farm and Household.
PUFF PASTE.--One quart flour,, three.
quarters pound bu tter or lard, yolks of
two eggs, a teaspoon salt,- and a table-
spoon powdered sugar ; mix with cold
or ice-water in a cool temperature.
Place the flour on aboard, sprinkle over
with salt and sugar, add gradually -the
yolks of eggs beaten up with a little icer
water, pouring them in with one hand
and mixing with the tips of the fingers
Sof the other, until it becomes a smooth
dough, as soft as can be easily handled.
APPLE FRITTERB.-Pare and core some
fine pippens of large size and cut them
in round slices, Soak them in wine,
sugar, and nutmeg, for two or three
hours, Make a batter of four eggs, a
i teaspoon of rose-water, a teaspoon of
wine, and the same quantity of milk;
thicken the batter with sufficient- quan*
tity of flour stirred in by degrees, to
make it of the consistency of ordinary
fritter batter. Let this batter be mixed
two or three hours before it is wanted,
in order that it may have time to get
light. Put some leaf-lard in the frying
pan, drop each fritter separately, and
let them brown nicely. Then drain
them, and sift over them powdered
sugar and nutmeg, and send them to
the table piled up fancifully in the dish,
FIsa CHOWDER.-Take a small piece of
pork, cut into squares, aud put in the
bottom of a kettle. Then take your
fish (about three pounds will make a
good sized chowder), cut it into pieces
(larger squares than the pork), lay
enough of this on the pork to cover well,
then a layer of potatoes, next a layer of
Boston crackers split, on this pepper
,and salt. Above tiis put a layer of
pork, and repeat the order given above,
until the materials are all exhausted ; let
the top layer be buttered crackers,
Pour on boili g water until covered,

hour. Five minutes before dinner,
dredge well with flour, and pour on a
pint of milk. This will make the geun.
ine Rye beach fish chowder.
SMALL ONION PICKLES,-Small onions,
not larger than marbles, must be care-
fully peeled and thrown into strong
brine. Let them remain eight days,
changing the brine every other day.
Dry in a cloth, place them in bottles,
add spices, and fill up with strong dis-
tilled vinegar. A tablespoonful of olive
oil will prevent the onions from turn-
ing yellow. Mustard seed, horseradish,
allspice, cloves, black pepper, corn and
mace are all excellent spices for .onions,
FRENCH OUSTARD.---Take one quart of
milk, flavor it with the peel of about
half a lemon pared very thin, sweaten
to taste with white sugar. Boil it and
leave it to get quite cold; then blend
with it three desert spoonful of fine
flour and two eggs well beaten. Simmer
it until it is of proper thickness, stir.
ring it in the whole time. Pour into
cups or a custard-dish,
TOMATO CATsUP.-Boil one bushel of
ripo tomatoes until perfectly soft.
squeeze them through a fine wire sieve

and a half of salt, two ounces of glove,
a quarter of a pound of allspice, two
ounces of Cayenne pepper, th ree tea.
spoonfuls of black pepper, five heads of
garlic, skinned and separated. Mix to-
gether and boil three hours. It should
reduce to one half, Bottle without
straining.

leans molasses, one cup lard, one-half
cup sugar, one heaping teaspoonful so-
da dissolved in three-quarters cup
warm water, one teaspoonful ginger,
one l.rge teaspoonful cinnamon, one
half teaspoonful cloves. Mix with
enough flour to keep them from sticking
to the board, and bake a nice brown
color,
OLD 1 AIDS' PICKLES.--One small head
of cabbage cut fine, six large onions
sliced, one ear of green corn sliced, one
half-dozen of ripe tomatoes sliced, one
pint of radish pods, green; two ripe
cucumbers cut small, thirty small green
cucumbers used whole, one teaspoon of
turmeric, twelve green peppers used
whole if small, three cents worth of
cloves, one-eighth of a pound of ground
allspice, one-eighth of a pound df ground
cinnamon, one-eighth of a pound of


mustard-seed, one-eighth of a pound of
pepper corns, one-half pound of biown
sugar, one quart of good cider vinegar,
one root of chopped horse-radish. Boil
the vinegar, sngar, spices, and turmeric,
and pour hot water over the pickles,
having brought them to a scald in weak
vinegar.
BOILED BEEFSTEAK.-Lay a thick, ten-
der steak upon a gridiron well greased
with butter or beef suet over hot coals ;
when done on one side have ready the
warm platter with a little butter on it,
lay the steak, without pressing it, upon
