Feminine Heroism, caption below illustration: "On coming near the cellar door, she exclaimed with pretended joy, though out of breath, 'I have found it! I have found it'- and in the same moment bounded suddenly against the sentinel at the entrance, throwing him headlong down the cellar stairs." This act caught the robbers and she, became the hero.
