For a little she stood hesitating. But
the defeat Of the jackals had given her
courage and resolution such as she
had never before known. She returned
into the rave, and chose the sharpest
of her stakis. Having made certain
that Wlnthrope was still asleep, sjV
set off boldly down the cleft.
At the fir -it turn she came upon
Blake's thor.i barricade. It stretched
across the narrowest part of the cleft
in an imper.i't ruble wall, 12 feet high.
Only In tile center was a gap, which
could have been filled by Blake In less
than two hours' work. The girl's eyes
brightened She herself could gather
the thorn-bn,sh and fill the gap before
night. They no longer need fear the
jackals of even the larger beasts of

and peered through I he tangle of

than ten paces away Blake was plod

out before him.

"1 am very glad you're not dead,

"Beasts? How's that?" he demanded.
"Oh, but you must have heard them!
The horrid thltiK tried to kill us!" she
cried, and she poured out a half In
coherent account of all that had hap
pened since he left.
Biake listened intently, his Jaw
thrust out, his eyes glowing upon her
wltli a look which she had never be
fore seen In any man's eyes. But his
first comment had nothing to do with
I her conduct.
"How's that? sorry Win got roust

Why, don't you know, we'd been all

Thank you, Mr. Blake. But should

pot of meat set on to stew.
It had ample time to sim

life-giving sleep, out of which he did
not awaken until evening, while Blake,
unable to wait for the pot to boll, and
nauseated by the fishy odor of the
dried seafowl, hunted out the jerked
leopard meat, and having devoured
enough to satisfy a native, fell asleep
under u bush.

placing an armful of sticks on the fuel

"Hello, Miss Jenny! Hard at It, 1

"Hush!" she cautioned. "Mr. Wln
thrope is still asleep."
"Good thing for him. He'll need all

"Well, between you and me, I don't

lie returned a few minutes before
sunset, with what appeared to be a
large fur hag upon his back Miss
Leslie was: pouring a howl of broth
from the slew-pot, and did qot notice
him until be snr.g out to her: "Hey,
Miss Jenny spill over that stuff! No
more of that in ours!"
"It's for Mr. Wlnthrope He has

You've killed an antelone!"
"Sure! Bushbtick, I guess they call

to see wliat'd bit him. I hauled off

Trot out your grill and we'll have
something fit to eat."
"You spike of beef juice."
"I've a tlozen steaks ready to broil.
Slap 'em on the fire, and I'll gqueeM
out enough juice with my fist to do
Win for to-night."
He made good his nssertlon, using
several of the steaks, which, having
lost less than half their juices In the
process, wore eaten with great relish
by Miss Leslie and himself.
Wlnthrope, after drinking tlie stimu
lating beef Juice and a quantity of hot
water, turned over and fell asleep
again while Blake was dressing his
wounds. None of these was serious of
itself; but Blake knew the danger of
Infection in the tropics, and carefully
washed out the gashes before applying
the tallow salve which Miss Leslie
had tried out from the antelope fat.
The dressing was completed by
torchlight. Blake then rolled the
sleeper into a comfortable position,
took the torch from Miss Leslie, and
left the cave, pausing at the entranco
to mutter a gruff good-night. The girl
immured a response, hut watched
him anxiously as he passed out. A
step beyond the entranco lie panted
and turned again. In the red glare
of the torch, his lace took on an ex
pression that filled her with fright.
Shrouded by the gloom of the hollow,
she drew back to her bod, and without
turning her eyes away from him,
groped for one of her bamboo stakes.
But before she could arm herself,
she saw Blake stoop over and grasp
with his free hand the mass of Inter
woven bamboos. He straightened him

had spread open the antelope skin, and
was beginning to slice tlie meat for
drying. Though IiIh forehead was fur
rowed, his expression was by no
means sinister. Believed at the
thought that the light must have de
ceived her, she returned to her bed
and was soon sleeping as soundly as
Blake strung the greater part of the
meat on the drying racks, built a
smudge fire beneath, anil stretched the
antelope skin on a frame. This done,
he took his club and a small piece of
bloody meat, and walked stealthily
down the Oleft to the barricade. Quiet
as was his approach, it was met by a
warning yelp on the farther side of the
thorny wall, and he could hear the
scurry of fleeing animals.
He kept on until the Darricade
loomed up before him In the starlight.
From cliff to cliff the wall now
stretched across t'.j gorge without
hole or gap. But Blake grasped the
trunk of a young date palm which
projected from the barricade near the
bottom, and pushed It out. The dis
placement of the spiky fronds disclosed
the low passage which he had made In
the center of the barricade. He placed
the piece ni meal on one side, two or
three feet from the hole, and squatted
down across from It, with bis club bal
anced on his shoulder.
Halt an i.our- passed-.. , and M
till he waited, silent and mmionleas a
as a statue. At last irtealthy footsteps H
ounded on the outer side of the thorn H
wall, and an animal began to creep M
through the wall, sniffing for the bait H
Blake watted with the immobility of H
an Ksklmo. The deiay was brief. M
With a boldness for which Blake H
had not been prepared, the beast H
leaped through and seised the meat. H
I .en in the dim light, Blake could H
see that he had lured an animal larger t
than any jackal. Rut this only served M
to lend greater force to his blow. As H
he struck, he leaped to his feet. The H
brute fell as though struck by light- H
nlng and lay still. H
Blake prodded the inert form warily; H
then knelt and passed his hands over M
it. The beast had whirled about just gggfl
In i i i ii. to meet the descending club, M
and the blow had crushed In Its skull. H
Chuckling at the success of his ruse, M
lie drew the palm hack Into the open- M
lag, and swung his prize over his M
shoulder. When he came to the fire, a M
glance showed him that he had killed H
a full grown spotted hyena. M
In tlie morning, when Miss Leslie M
appeared, there were two hides M
stretched on bamboo frames, and the M
air was dark with vultures streaming H
down into the cleft near the barricade. H
I Lake was sleeping the sleep of the H
just, and did not waken until she had H
built I lie tire and begun to broil the H
steaks which he had saved. H
Again they had a feast of the fresh H
antelope meat. But with repletion M
came more of fastidiousness, and H
Blake agreed with Miss Leslie when H
she remarked that salt would have M
added to i he flavor. He set off pies- H
cut l.v, and spent half a day on the H
talus of the headland, gathering salt H
from the rock crannies. M
For the next three days he left the H
cleft only to gather eggs. The great- H
er part of his time was spent In tan- H
nlng the hyena and antelope skins. H
Meantime Miss Leslie continued' to BB
nurse Wlnthrope ana to gutner lire-
wood. Under Blake's dlreaflons, she H
also purified the salt by dissolving H
It in a pot of water, and allowing the M
dirt to settle, when the clarified solu- M
t Ion was poured off and evaporated H
over the fire in one of the earthen H
ware pans. M
At first Wlnthrope had been toe HH
weak to sit up. But treated to a lib- MM
eral diet of antelope broth, raw eggs, H
hot water, and cocoanut milk, he H
gained strengtli faster than Blake had H
expected. On the fourth day Blake H
set him to work on the final rubbing M
of the new . ,i, u.;. on the fifth, he or- ,,B
dered him to go for eggs. M
Much to Miss Leslie's surprise, Win- M
I hi-ope started off without a word of H
protest. All his peevish irritability M
had gone with the fever, and the girl M
was gratified to see the quiet manner M
In which he set about a task which M
seemed an imposition upon tils half-re- M
gained strength. But the very motive M
which, seemingly, prevented him from M
protesting, impelled her to speak for H

Theater Curtain Stuck. H
The modern Iron theater curtain, M
which is really a metallic wall by H
which a theater auditorium may be ef- H
iei in.-. IK si -para ted from the stage in H
ease of accident by fire, must be prop-
erlj constructed, says Le Temps, If H
Its benefits are to be realized. A de H
scent at an unexpected moment would M
result in the loss of as many heads ai M
might lie In its way, and a failure to H
move it at all might also cause trouble. H
This latter feature was experienced at
the seventy-first performance of "L
Km" at the Varieties. The house wai H
well filled, 8,000 francs having been H
taken in at the box office when It wai gH
time to begin the performance, but M
the metal curialu could not lie raised.
One of the big counterweights had
been loosened and crashed to the
stage. Repairs could not be made and H
the audience filed out, receiving the H
price of tickets hack at the door.
Thoughts on the American Woman. H
We Americans are not yet quite able jH
to distinguish a type, either of man or H
woman, that ban developed out of our H
very complex ethnographic condition. H
We think, now and then, that we can JH
see certain qualities or characteristics H
so grouped In an Individual as to make
us say for the moment that there Is an HI
"American." The American woman Is, Itl
perhaps even a little more undevel- H
oped, to our thinking, than is the H
American man. We admire or tremble !
before women of a certain air or qua!
Ity; but this very mien and quality ot ggH
her do not seem permanent, fixed; and HH
the woman we class as "American" to- jB
day may be altogether different from
the imperious creature we crowned ILfl
yesterday. Perhaps it is with regard B
to the woman as It Is with respect to flB
the past. It takes the tone of dis- MB
tance, space, to bring out the glory iaH
and the distinction to orb her. Co- H
