The pale, small face, with the delicate nose and nostrils that always  seemed to vibrate, the beautifully  formed mouth, 'about which such a  disdainftri expression occasionally  ���������played; the steel gray eyes that took  a green ligrit_ when excited, blended  wonderfully with^'the face of the little girl of former years.

Lucie remembered well the handsome man with the aristocratic features, and with' what strong' affection the little, one would hang about  his neck, when he would return  home after'an absence of weeks.

The governess also came clearly before her" memory again'���������the elderly,'  fussy person who'was always looking for her pupil. "0*i, Mademoiselle  Lucie! dear Madame ^Walter, have  you seen Hortense?"  Lucie had always been positively  forbidden either to drive her goat or  to ride hor pony through the park,  but Mile. Bertin was always begging- her mother, in her-b'roken German: "Po - let Lucie come oftener  with us. Frau Doctor. Hortense-1 is  so fond 01" her, and .she so seldom  ���������cares for other-children Mademoiselle  Lucie is so gentle, she will have a  good   in/liience   upon   rrortenpe."  She recalled aill the games which  Hortense had suggested ������������������ the races  in the court-yard,' the secret confabs  in the attic:���������and then how she used  to be scolded when- she appeared before her mother covered with dust  and her clothes torn. Now she seemed to fee'l again the fascination that  used' to''influence her in those, days,  "when she would be sitting busy with  her schoolbooks in the children's  room, and put of the branches of the  pear-tree in front of the window a  pale, childish'face, with large grey  eyes and dark ' hair would appear.  "Arc you not coming! Make haste! I  will wait in the barn."  The sums would be added up in the  most reckless manner, and she would  hurry off to the dimly lighted barn,  where everything smelled extremely  musty. And Hortense would talk  and tell stories. "When I am grown  up, then���������"She even then talked of  a possible husband.  Lucie smiled to herself. It was  odd that they should meet again  here, after a separation of so many  yea-rs. What had Hortense been doing all this time? She wanted ,'to  hear, but scarcely knew howto ask.  "Plow is Mademoiselle Bertin?"  she asked at last.

Miss Hartwell had not encountered
her face on the sand again and was
reaping nothing but health and pleasure from hor vacation, especially since
young Hammond had become such an
interesting, part.of.it Then one morn-
. ing she came upon it again." As'before,
it was early morning. She stamped-*
it out"even'-more emphatically.
Her brother'arrived that day, and
she immediately confided to him how
much annoyance the .sculptor was occasioning her/ Tom lost no time in
getting after the man. who deuied all
knowledge of the matter.
''I came here for rest and amusement, and the la'sfvtbing 1 am likely to
do is to make faces in the sand. I
work in more durable material."
"But the likeness was*unmistakable,
and you are the only sculptor here,"
v.rgod Tom doggedly.

vwith it. My weird should offsi'.l a mere
suspicion. I do not know your sister,
but if she is the young woman I think
you can assure her that 1 will not

concluded, sarcastically.
Miss Hartwell was incredulous when
she heard her brother's report. "I don't
like the man's face." she said.
"That doesn't prove he did yours in
the sand, Maggie." returned her brother reproachfully. "I gather from his
remarks   that   he   doesn't   like   your
Miss Hartwell tossed her head. Tom
was so easy going. She might catch

.turned and studied the sea. The tide

, She stood motionless, thinking very
hard.' Yes! Every time she, had seen
the facet on the sand it had been early

She turned, a smile on her face, regarded the sand image wistfully, then
suddenly stooped and stuck a pink car-

One night as the Peasant was soundly sleeping he was aroused by a knock
on-the door, and when he asked who
called a voice replied: ,   l   ,
"O Peasant, I beg the loan of thy lantern for a few minutes."
"Hast lost something in ' the darkness?" was asked.    '
--'Nav, not that. I am a thief and
have come "for thy Goat, but I require
a lantern to light up the stable,"
"You shall have it with cheer, and
you may" leave it outside the door as
yon go away."
The Peasant's wiftt began upbraiding
him that he-should assist to steal his
own property, but he turned to her and
"Silence, woman! Firstly, I am nc
match for a thief who has doubtless
come armed to attack or defend; secondly, the Ass and the Goat are, stabled
side by side, and did I not lend jny
lantern the thief might get the Ass b~
mistake. I am not the vfiiest man in
the county, but I do know the difference between a three dollar Goat and a
thirty dollar Ass!"     ���-"���'.���'

for some, time a slave in Algiers, and
there he devised a plan to free himself,
and thirteen of his fellow sufferers.
One of them traitorously revealed the-

them.their1 lives on condition that they;-
revealed thecoutrivor of the plot.
"I was that person," at once cried:
Cervantes. "Sa-ve my companions and.
let-me perish alone."

A very curious Item in toxicologlcal  lore I chanced to litfht upon, wrote  Goorge-Augustus Sala In'one of his letters, may be called the feat -of poisoning by sleight of band. You were jealous of a lady, and you wished, to lcill  her. Well, you asked ber to lunch, aud  you caused u rery nice peach, to be  served-at."dessert You cut the fruit  with a golden knife, one side of the  blade of which was endued with a  deadly poison. You presented the poisoned half of tbe peach to the lady,  who ate it with much relish and then  dropped down dead.  The wholesome half you ate yourself and laughed in your sleeve and  wont on slicing mow peaches for the  ladies of whom you wero jealous 'till  you were found out and broken on the  wheel. Aye, there's the rub! What  high old times'we might have, to bo  sure, but for that plaguy contingency  of being found out!  EXTRA!       EXTRA!!

(l It was a forlorn looking house, long
since forsaken of human tenantry, one
Tronic! have said. Scurrying lizards did
sentry duty upon its porch; and the
predacious ants' had eaten *into its
woodwork. Dut to a ciyil engineer in
1ho unsettled center of Mexico any,
shelter is a matter of gratitude.- Dar-<
rel and I took possession without any
qualms of guilt, for it was evident that
the owner hud moved ont years before. While the cook built a tire and
prepared dinner iu the main room we
proceeded t<i explore, not without caution, for the���old shack looked like a
promising resort for snakes. I bad
just dispatched a, couple that were
keeping house in a Bide room when a
shout from Darre! summoned me to
, the second-story. ' .
"Here's a queer tbing to turn up in
an abandoned house," he called.      {

������It's gold,  that's -what it is���a big
bracelet'ofi-it right near the entrain*-.
There's something that looks like bones
near it."
'���.Iu.st what I expected!" I cried jubi-
'lantly. ' "An Aztec burial cave probably, and the fellow that drew the'map
found it out some way.    They buried
'their finest'treasures with  their dead.
It's a fortune. Dan-el."'
"(Jhastly enough plaeeto find it in,"
he "said. -Hut here's ,foi; it sinj^ow."
And he entered-* tbe opening that liu
���ind made'. ( "
For what seemed to me long minuted
I lay peering over the cliff at the
twitching rope thac gave indications of
Darrci's movements. Then there cch-v
oed from the opposite side of the ravine a strange sound as of the rattling
of many castanets, followed j by a
shriek of such grisly terror as I never
again want to hear. The next .instant
Darrel plunged forth from the mouth
of the cave, swung out from the face
of the cliff, swung back again against
the rock and, still shrieking horribly,
so that the ravine reverberated with
the sound of  it.  slipped   through  the
of men.    In the south , branch, above- j ^0��to��oieo'Ro*ioW|oltbSP��o��60��to��?o.~

the stream off with buckets and put- !

' 'small map' drawn on" prepared paper,
the  work  of  an  amateur.     Whoever-
\ drew it knew something about surveying, for he had his ranges and scales
. fairly correct.    He had started  at a
spring at, tbe foot'of an-.unlocatcd'hill

Then he had run 125 feet up a cross

marked a cross^on the face of a  wall
~' rising' sheer 'ninety  feet..  Liis marks
"'showed the elevation'1'of this cross to
���^   be thirty-two feet above the bed of the

"What's the most'likely thing to be

"Oh, 1 see!" said he:    "A cave, you
mean.    But what's in the cave, then.?"

can locate the cave," said I.
Luck was with us in the matter. It
wasn't a week later when one of our
surveyors came in with a tale of having located a line spring at the foot of
n hill and" near one of the wildest ravines that he had ever set eyes on.
Neither Darrel nor I_rested easy until
we were on the way to the spot v��itli
the little map tucked under ,my belt.
We were to, split even on whatever we
fo-xiud. i'oor Darrel! When 1 think of
that bargain. I have a chill even .to this
It took us .nearly a day on mulebaek
to reach our 'destination. There were
the spring, the hill and the ravine running back just as in the map. It was
one ���� the-Avildest spots 1 ever saw in
a wild country; one.couldn't help_feeling a' bit put\-out with its loneliness.
Up the big ravine we trudged until we
reached the cross gulch, a sheer cut
through the solid rock, the, work of
centuries of fierce torrents.
it took us a long time to make,.out
the cross;, as the cliff' was in semidnrk-
ness and patches of moss were growing over the surface, but Ave located it
at last and saw that tbe .only way !to
foach it was from the top of the cliff.
Having' foreseen this contingency..
��ve had brought along a stout rope, and
near the edge of the cliff, which we
mounted after si long detour, we found
a convenient lrce. For one of us to
lower the other would be an easy matter. ' Both of us were eager to g<��.
Which should it be? The good ��!<i
American method of a flipped .coin was
the arbiter, and Darrel won. Present-
ly he was sitting in the bight of tho
rope before the spot, where the cross
was marked and calling up his reports
to ine.
"Yes. there's a cave here all right,
but it's walled up. Lower me down
that geologist's'Im aimer'of ��� yours, and
I can break the flimsy thing in."
I sent the 'hammer down on a string,
and for five minutes Darrel hammered
and   panted,  and  the sound  of crum-
bight of the rope
and follpheadloug to
the rocks below. For a moment T lay
tiiere -srncicen. waiting for l knew not
what thing- of horror to issue from the
mysterious cavern. . Then I "rushed
down to, the aid of my motionless companion. Half the contents of my flask
had been forced down his throat before ho opened-his'eyes. Dut not5 to
consciousness did he open them. The
glare in them told me that. I tried to
recall his mind.        ' y       -"   \"' "   ��.
"What was it, old inan? W7hat was
it?" I asked him.
He,half raised himself and tried to
speak, gasping and choklnglike a man
being strangled.
**"The hands!   The hands of the dead!
At by throat!    They're throttling mei
.Help!" ' .      ' .   \     '
He tore' at his throat" with mad
strength. Then hi.? limbs relaxed, and
he fell back in my arms lifeless. 1
believe in 'my inmost, soul that it was
not the fall -from the cliff, but shocr
terror, that killed him.
How I ever lived through that fearful, horror haunted ride to the camp
I don't know. > I ,was crazy wilh fever
and delirium when j I reached thero.
It wasn't' till Weeks afterward that-
they told, me' of the expedition that
.went out to find and bury Darrel. "My
ravings.and ,the map that they.'found
when'they undressed me gave .1 hem a
-working clew to' the tragedy. ^,They
found the rope-tied to the tree, and two
of the men went down and entered the
cave armed with' stout clubs, for their
theory was that poor Darrel had been
killed by a venomous snake... That
would not' have "explained his last
words, but what Ghey. found did. A
few yards In from the entrance lay
sprawled a heap of articulated skeletons. Darrel's hat was beneath the
heap. Groping his way in. he had displaced a slender post which held in
place on a shelf above him the grim,-
dead guardians of the dead. They had
fallen upon ihe invader and claimed
him for their own.
The men searched the cave. Row
after row of long'dead mummies they
found, but little treasure. The brace-
, let that had cost Darrel his life and
one or two small gold carvings���that
was all. But what of the map and the
���maker of, it? Did he perhaps visit the
cave and perish there of terror? Were
his bones those that Darrel saw from
the entrance of the cave? That is a
mystery that I shall never ���'solve���that*

calmly replied. .. * .

had finished him off, I tpok another,

laughed the colonel,, "and I stopped my
