: Printed on border: "There is a story of a burglar, who at midnight climbed up to a chamber-window, and cautiously opened it. The occupant, chancing to be awake, crept softly to the window, and just as the robber's face appeared, presented the smooth muzzles of two revolvers, with the injunction : 'You get!' 'You bet!' replied the house-breaker, dropping and running. There is no more pithy dialogue on record." Includes additional text.
