Mr. Salt ring could not help noticing that Keziah was not being well treated, and lie felt that he conld not leave the house without speaking of it. He had always beeen extremely fond of Keziah, and he and Hackbit had had former conversations upon the question of drink, which made it easy for him to speak. The conversation took plaoe while Backbit wasiitting np in bed, eating his breakfast, at eleven o'cloofc, for he had slept till then. " This is a bad job,'Hackbit," Mr. Saltring i began.

CHAPTER XXXIX.-ME. HAOKBIT'S CHRISTMAS DAY. It was between fire and six o'clock when Mr. Saltring and Mr. Simpler arrived at Hackbit's house; it was dark. There was no light in any of the downstair rooms facing the street; bnt one of the two opper rooms had a light, which shone through dark red cnrtains.

The doctor bad 6een Mr. Hackbit, and bad ordered such large doses of laudanum, and so often, that Mrs. Hackbit dared not give them. She was upstairs with Mr. Hackbit, which Wilson did not think proper or safe, as Mr. Hackbit was mad in her opinion, and wanted a strait-jacket. Mr. Saltring went upstairs, and Mr. Rimpler remained where he was, for the time, and afterwards went to his own bedroom and sat there. As Mr. Saltring opened the door of the bedroom, he saw Eeziah, terrified and weep ing, and Mr. Hackbit in a very menacing attitude. He seemed to rec...

I ADELINE on every occasion kept as much in the background as possible, distinguishing most by ber unobtrusive helpfulness. But when the vicar gave his Christmas Eve party this year, she was prevailed upon to accompany the Saltrings, principally to avoid making her Belf conspicuous by resisting their importuni ties. Here, during the performance of a Bee thoven sonata for piano and violin by Miss Towers and the vicar (he had a great idea of elevating, the popular taste), Madeline sat with such rapt attention that the eyes of everyone became fixed upon her. Mr. Rock ingham caught her in ber listening attitude, and when the sonasto was over, asked her if she played. " I have been accustomed to playing," she replied simply. " Some of my relatives are professional musicians." She had scarcely ottered these words when she appeared to r...

Policeman Z2 was bringing a lunatic from Muttaburra to Barcaldine, and was to change prisoners with XI at Ara mao. The coaches met at the nsnal time, and Z2 duly received bis prisoner and left. Un fortanately he forgot to point out the parti cular lunatic to XI, and when that officer climbed into the coach tor Barcaldine, there were six passengers seated in the vehicle solemnly regarding the representative of the law as he squeezed himself into the vacant seat. The question now was how to find bis lunatic. He glanced cautiously around, but there was no striking difference to be observed among the passengers. Probably if h...
