"However," continued DrJapel, 4
destruction of the city of Atlantis
curred at a period when mankind
arrived at a state of great learning
civilization, for we know that the x
wondrous cities then stood on the sh
of the western ocean, to which c

setting sun, from distant islands, tal

bringing rare .and curious treasi

of the far south who were spared,
they gradually came northward, exte
ing their settlements along the g
rivers, building mounds in iruitatio:

.'Tvo seen them," interrupted Gilb
"and they are the source of much
cussion among our learned men."
"They still exist then?" inquired JO
pel, and continued: "These people w

was long ago, long ago, before the
had left these deserts above us, but ai
a time a wild and savage race overflow
the land from the north, strange

thirsty. They drove our people bi
until they were obliged to dwell in
inaccessible cliff houses and build th?
selves walled towers for defense, for tl
were not a warlike race.
"Since the people lived in the ca
and cliff houses, the rivers have ?
, their way deep into the earth, leavi
the dwellings of our forefathers hi
upon the cliffs, so you may know tl
many ages have passed since then.
"There"were seven great cities in 1
Atzlan country ages ago, but they hi
vanished, and we know not ^ven wh>
they stood; but we kno\vthey w?

old city, but it is in truth the young

buildings of this old city are und

"I can show you," continued Brlap<
"many things which came from At ag
ago, when the sea, now dried up, reach?
nearly to this city of Atzlan."
"What!" cried Eric in amazemen
"Have you traditions of the time wh(
the sea was near this place?"
"Oh, yes; there was a great sea to tl
north," said the priest, "and a chain i

real injury at theilossof such a treas

He was trembling with eagerness t<
see the relics. Almost feverishly h<
hurried the old man along, and reach
ing the temple he ran up to his roon
and brought down his electric light ap

few touches to be in working order
Meanwhile Bxlapel had brushed away i
covering of sticks, grasses and eartl
from the ground floor of the temple, re
vealing a large trapdoor, and when Eric
arrived he told him to lift it up. It wat

every crevice with a dazzling brilliancy
and showed to Eric's eves a sight that
made his heart beat with a new emo

It was about thirty-seven feet in
length and twelve feet wiide. The bow
was high and terminated iii a swan s
head and neck, well carved and curving
gracefully. The bow was docked over
for about four feet, and the lines of the
vessel, although somewhat clumsily de
signed, showed much nautical knowl
edge. She had eight wide thwarts, and
had evidently carried a mast inserted in
the center of the boat, as there was a
round aperture in on* thwart. There
were deep, rennd notches ip the outer
edge of the gunwale, Evidently made

must have been propettsd, as there was
no evidence "o* oars or any other appli

was several minutes before he summoned

Still, as he had disappeared, neith
Eric nor Iklapel allowed it to rest loi
upon their minds, and they continu
their examinations of the relics und:

representations of elephants, lions ai
camels, distinctly and carefully draw
animals of which Iklapel had no co
ception whatever beyond these rude or
lines. There were boats delineate

It was with wonder and amazemei
that Gilbert studied the strange pi
tares, undoubtedly relics of a long pa
Age, for he was convinced that ti

and meaning; in fact the characters i
which the records were written upc
them were, with few exceptions unf;
miliar to him, they having been supe:
seded by a more convenient if less pi?

characters he found many resemblin
those of the Maya alphabet, but more i
the nature of pictorial representatioi
These were similar to the charactei
upon the slab of bronze, and thex
flashed across his mind a memory c
Plato's statement-that the people c
Atlantis engraved their laws upon co!
umns and plates of bronze and gold
Could it be that this was- one of thos
While he was occupied with thes
thoughts the old priest brought a quaint
ly carved cedar box, and removing it
cover disclosed a double handful o
roughly cut gems, the great value o
which Eric discerned at a glance. Hi
examined them with appreciative eyes
finding among them several diamonds o
the size of hazel nuts and many fini
rubies and emeralds.
"These," said Iklapel, "came from tb*
far south; they are the seeds of the ser
pent. Before he came and covered thc
world with clay and stones and watei
there was none of these on the earth

the tradition. The people of Atlantis
had no such shining stones, but they had

Carved on one face was an intaglio,
finely executed, representing a pyr
amidal mountain, with a city surround
ing its base, evidently a picture of the
fated city. Around the edge was a
border of small characters in the ancient
writing. On the reverse side was cut
the Crux Ansata, the mystic Tan, the
sacred symbol of the Phallic god of the
old. world, which has puzzled the savants
"What a treasure," thought Eric, "to
lay before the scientists of the country,
and what a deal of discussion it would
There was nothing more to be seen,
and with a glance around the room he
took up his light and followed Iklapel
np the ladder. They had spent several
hours in the vaultlike place and found
Kulcan above waiting for them. He
looked anxious and moody, and catching
Gilbert's eye motioned to him to follow
him. The young priest led the way
silently, yet casting quick, cautious
glances about bim, to the large gate,
and when they were outside, almost into
the pinon orchards, he turned to Eric,
and after a moments nervous hesitation
he began, "Did my brother ever gamble?**
"Well," replied Eric, with a 6mile,
"I've played the game my people call
poker many times, Tm sorry to say
too many times in fact-and I've tried
faro also once or twice, with poor re
"But," interrupted Knlcan, "did you
ever allow yourself to be so carried
sway with the excitement of these games
that you forgot your duty to your sisters
"No," answered Eric, "but I have
seen many men lose their heads and
gamble away all they owned."
"Then," said the priest, "you will un
derstand. I must confess to you, my
brother, and burden you with a miser
able tale-a tale of grief and shame. I
cannot look you in the face, but I must
tell you. We have, as you have seen, a

was coming, although he did not guess
its f nil meaning.

tered Lela hurrying with quick, grace
ful strides in search of him. She held
in her hand one of the comical Atzlan
dolls made of red clay, whose hideously
painted face, surmounted by a shock of
fciafdr bristles, added to ber own look of
fright, drove his mission instantly rrom
"Oh, darling!" she cried, seizing his
arm, "come quickly. Poor Listah, the
hermit priest, has fallen from a ladder
and broken his leg. He lies there moan
ing so piteously, and I know you can
"Is that all?" said Eric, smiling with
true professional unconcern. "I feared
that it was something serious. And this?"
pointing to the doll in her hand. She
looked down, blushed a little, and smil
ingly explained that she had been dress
ing the horrible effigy for little Eltza
when the old priest fell, and she had
hurried in search of him without notic
ing that she held it. He took it from
her, and looking at its face said :
"No wonder the old man fell. That
would frighten almost anybody."
"Why," she retorted, "I think it the
nicest doll in Atzlan; it is so hideous,"
cuddling it to her. "But come; we must
go to him!"
Others came running, with eager calls,
to hind, and he went with them to where
the old man lay groaning with pain and
exclaiming that it was a judgmentupori
him for breaking:. his vow of isolation
and coming into the city before his time
had expired. But when Eric arrived
and began to examine bis broken limb
he bore the pain "with savage stoicism
and uttered .not a sound. It was a sim
ple fracture of tue left leg, which Gil
bert easily set, and applying splints and
bandages had the old man carried to
his own dwelling, where he could attend
to his needs. Listah was overcome with
gratitude, and declared that he felt the
leg healing already, although he winced
more than once as his bearers moved
When Eric saw him resting easily it
had grown dark, and the moonlight was
pouring down into the canyon, making
the walls of the city gleam like marble
palaces; the air was still moist and filled
with the sound of the river as it gargled
and splashed over the shallow ford. Lela
sat just outside his door waiting, with
her cheek upon her hand and her hair
shining in the mellow light like melted
As he came outside and leaned over
her she looked up and reached her bare
arms up to him, folding them slowly
about his neck with a lingering, cling
ing, creeping movement that showed
how fondly she loved, and sent a warm
thrill through him, winelike, overpower
ing. She drew-him down and held his
face against hers for a long time, with
closed eyes; then slowly their iips crept
nearer, nearer, until they came together
in one long drawn kiss. It was more
it was a marriage-a Mending of two
hearts made for each other, a reunion of
two souls that in all the economy of the
universe had been formed to be one that
had been seeking each other forages per
haps and bad met at last. Such at least
was Eric's belief, and it was with a rev:
erential feeling that he kissed the noble
forehead of this beautiful, angelic orea
ture who so wondrously found it possible
to love him, a rough, blunt, homely,
ungraceful man. He said as much in
fact, and she answered:
"Oh, my dariing, don't you know you
are the noblest, most perfect of all God's
creatures - the handsomest, bravest,
tenderest, wisest of all men on earth?"
and much more to the same effect, add
ing that the wonder was that he conld
find anything to love, to admiro in her.
a savage thing, etc. All this was so
new to them, 60 rare and wonderful,
that they imagined it had newer occurred,
"Did others ever love as-wc do?" was
their constant query.
But it was delightful, delicious and
would have reconciled .vriiau to endure
any existence whatsoever to dwell in
such blisa. No wonder that for a long
time he forgot ?ll about [vulcan's diffi
culties and his darling's imminent dan
ger. When he did remember it WHS
with a sudden 6tart that caused her to
look np into lu's face in alarm and whis
per. "What is it, my owu?" in tender
solicitude. Her eyes were on his face
constantly, and she had grown to read
each change of feeling, each mood, al
most each thought, as it left its scarcely
perceptible imprint on his countenance
or shone in his dark eyes. She read
there his reluctance to tell the tale of
her brother's misdoings. In truth he
hardly knew how to berin it.
