Injun helped to tether out the stock, nnd
pointed out a lonir, steep, rocky ledge, a
little further on, rlln' up ilnrk nnd sharp
like a r.ifTRMl toppd wall, nnd told us we'd
find the ruins we was hiintln' Jut oer be

tnide a kind of speech to me nnd the major,

I didn't noways pet on to. Then, when

Uradstock so worked up before, nnd he
Riue orders right awav for mo to set up
his draw In' fiame and open out his blp
shadn uiuhlelln, o' he could make a
picture, from where ho was standln' of
what ho tailed a blrdsej o Mew of tho prem
ises. "While I wivr obeyln' directions, all nt
once tho major began usln' strong lan
guage, nnd naturally T looked round to see
what was up, nnd I tell jou Major Urad
stock waH a mud lookltiR man, nnd when
he let on tho reason I didn't much blame
him. He'd come nwnj, clean forgettln',
somehow, to bring any paper to draw or to
paint on. I volunteered to go back to
cninp and bring It right up, and, allow In'
full time for the trip, that would still
leave him near tho whole day to paint
In, It beln" so carl. nut lie wouldn't have
tt, suyln' ns ho didn't recollect where he'd
left 11. nnd that he didn't wnnt no one
maulln' over his private records and writ
ings, and for me to wait 'round where 1
was till he'd como back; nnd with that
he starts off dona to camp, growlln'.
"Thoiu-h lhe sun wa'n't far UP. It had
grown hot already, not a breath of air stlr
rln', nnd T .settled down under tho shade
of the big drawln' umbrella. Inlendln' to
loif right there and take In tho sights till
the mnlor'd come back. 'Way off bevond
most of the bulldln's, and standln' alone a
little ways In from tho front of the ledge
that hung over the canon, I tieen what at
first slpht 1 took for Just a big, natural
block of sandstone, rounded off at the top
bv the weather Hut after I'd looked for
awhile, 1 seen that the rock had been
enrved so's to look like a big, human head.
The sun was shlnln' full on It, and It stood
out plain and clean cut. now that I Knew
what It was. The mouth was thick lipped
and grlnnln', and the big eea was rounded
and starin", and there was shiny mmm
crystals, or some oth -r such like gllntln'
stones, set In the so kets, which Unshed
out In the sun. Than I wot somehow to
feelln' kind of toned up and strange, like
I'd Just have to go down and look at that
grlnnln' head closer. So I plrkcd up the
big shade umbrell i and started right away
down to the ruins,
"As I've suld, the mornln' was hot, and it
was all the time Rettln' hotter, and I'd
have liked to've sauntered along and took
the trip kind of easy nut no sooncr'd I
got down to the lint than It seemed, some
how, like I was beln' drawn, In spite of
im-elf, and I struck a gait right away of
more'n live miles nn hour. I tried puttln'
on brakes and dug my heels In the ground
so's to stop, but I couldn't sl'ick speed no
ways I could IIjc It. It was like I was tied
to a rope, and was beln' run In with a
windlass. 1 Just went tearln' past all ihnm
Interestln' old ruins, with my umbrella
open nnd trallln' and my gait gettln' faster
and faster. I wa'n't moie'n three minutes
pasln' the principal bulldln's. Then I
went swentln' and pullln' over the open,
makln' straight for a point Just In front
of the hi ad, and I seen thnt If I didn't
bring up right away, or change my direc
tion. In two minutes mote I'd be over the
Hat, bcetlln' ledRo and droppln' down Into
the canon, I commenced getting wild and
hollered for help ilth what llttlo bi until 1
hud left, and remembered the w.unln' the
Injun had given us, and thought of the big
pile of bqnes heaped up under the blulf
near the camp, knowln' now just how thev
got there. Then I tried to switch olt irom
tho line I wns travclln', but kept right
along llko I was set In a groove, runnln"
straight to the Sin) foot drop-off or the
ledge, and was beln' diawn on by a thou
sand pound magnet. I went by the head
like a shot, and In jussln' fiom me being
tlustrated. mavbe Its thkk lips seemed to
be movln" and Its round eyes to roll, as I
went over tho edge with a yell and my
umbrella wavln', und dropped plumb down
Into the canon,
"When I left the hanl ground and struck
out Into the air my heait M-emed to stop
bealin', and the end of my backlwno
sci'ined like It was curlln' to hold onto
somethln' to keep me from fallln', nnd my
lire ith seemed to stop nnd I i lo-ed up my
eyes, still cluti bin' tight bv natural In
stinct, I reckon to tht- handle of the big
umbrella. A wind tame nisiiiir ami toai
ln" 'round me like a cjilone was blow In',
nnd I heard shouiln' far down In the can
on. The next thing I knew I brought ehort
upon somethln' hnrd and rattlln', and
wns btumhlln' cud over end fot consider
able distance, and i omo lo, Miiprl-ed to
Ilnd I'd stopped droppln'. Everything
seemed swlmmlu' nbout me and 1 loll sore
all over and it soil of fi-tllii' of guiieness.
When J ui xt looki d about. Major Ilrnd
stoik, who'd Just struck camp when I
slopped tumblln' -o I heard afterwards
and the rest of our part and a whole lot
of Injuu-s was t-tiunlin' about and I found
myself stretched out with someone's eont
under my head, on the big mound of bones
I spoko of Just a little while buck Tlieti
when I seen Major Ilradstoek eaiulnin'
his big shade umbiella, which had stood
tho trip down better u I had tho stei I

way no one could ever iinwnv have cnl
c'lated on I knew light away what had
mved me from nddln" my bones to the col

That there uncommon big shade umbiella
beln' open had providentially broko my
fall all the way down and landed me, only
a little bruised up, on the bone heap.
"I wa'n't so much hurt but what I could

of latu to kno k down this oti-repcated,

the truth may be, his girl are rarely

but It Is all of no avail. He was working
entirely from the outMde, and this Is rather
rematkablo in a man of such delicately
sensitive und even feminine Instincts, iVr
li.ins his failure arose from a verv fr-

ance thnt he would carrj "
HeRiirdliig lhe feasibility of the scheme,
Mt William Alexander, secret irv of the
HciultahlK l.lfe Assurance So. lety, said
II Is a matter that wa never before
brought to m.v nnllce, but, speaking gen
einll, I do not see anv objection to It
If It Is honestly conducted. I.lfe Insurant e
Is governed bv conditions Hint vary, and
we would have to examine this plan vcrv
inrefullv before aciepllng such risks. A
number of gentlemen could form a club
mil Insuio a whole or pirt of their mem
bership unci pav lhe expenses, nnd the
church could reimburse them. Howover,
t Is a new plan, and I can only say off
hand that It seems legitimate."
While) personally opposed to the lnur
aneo scheme, fiom a business standpoint,
Vlcitr riciirrnl Patrick T McNumnia. of
tho llrooklyn diocese, ndmltted Hint It was
feasible, and thai sevenil eongregnttnns un
der his iiulsdlcllon, those of the e'huicli of
tho Nntlvll.v, the f'hureh of the Vlsltntlon,
Ht. Slephen'H chinch, in South Ilrookl.vn,
and St. Anthon's clitinh, In rirprnpolnt,
had Instiled menibcts but no results linci
been obtnlned In the limited time that tho
scheme had been In operation.
"1 nm opposed lo such methods of rnlslng
money." continued tho vlenr general. "Ik
cause I think It Is too long nnd too costly
a way to wipe out debt We would hnve to
continue palng tho Interest on mortgages
nnd at the same lime pav the expenses of
insiiiniico, nun tins tiounie expense would
hardly result prnlltably oven after twenty
years, or by thn deaths of those Insured
I still believe the better plan Is to pay off
pnrt of thn mortgage at certain periods,
and thus reduce the Inteicst. It Is snfer,
more biislness-llka and tnoic legitimate."
The ltev John It. Davis, pastor of the
Pourtlt Avenue Presbyterian church, said
of the Insurance scheme
"Well. If they would all dlo after they
weic Insured the chinches would become
very ilch. but, seriously, t could not ap
prove of sin h a method of raising monev
It savors too stiongly of speculation, and
It would tnko too much dignity awnj fiom
the churches "
The insnrnncc scheme, according to the
gentleman who proposed It, was not to be
contlned to chinches. He pointed out that
colleges, all charitable Institutions und
towns and villages might be benellted If
the ginduatos, the members of faculties
or bo. nils of trustees nnd public spirited
cltlens ngreed to Insure themselves.
Mr. Ci K. llarroun, Measurer of Cnlon
college, has an olllce In Long Island City,
lie was rather nonplussed at first when he
was told of the Insutnncc scheme.
"This Is certainly an original Idea," be
said, with a merry twinkle In his ejes.
"What do you think of It, Mr. I.indon?
Would you Insure jour llfo for the col
lege'" said Mr. Hnnoun. turning to Mr. It.
.1 l.antlon. an alumnus of tho collego and
"Well to tell the truth," said Mr l.an
tlon. "I do not earn ti cents one wav or
the other. It would be no load to carry.
They can lnsuie me if It will benefit tho
"It would never do to ask tho graduates
to tuko such a step," raid Mr. Ilnrioiiii.
"Why, a grad does not ret down to this
teirestrlal sphere lor many years after he
leaves us. Just Imagine approaching a
grad after the commencement elm Ing tho
week beginning on June 21. and asking him
to Insure bis life for tiny puiporo. A grad.

earth In lght after be goes from college.
Dentil Is nn unknown epinntlty to him Ho

cided that OiJ .shaies Is the highest number
that anyone can own. As n. further pre
caution it is suggested that the local lodges
and divisions of the dltteieut Hrothcrhoiuls
subscribe for this stock as an Investment,
iinnrt from the Investments made bv Indi

not asketl to pa an) ihlng on such sub

Wl) tew people me nvviiie of Its exist

onl) means of re.u hlng It up to the pres

one of tho lav cleik'b rooms In the Horse
Shoo clolsteis. The beautifully vaulted
pasage is constituted of llnely worked
blocks, ot chalk, Its broad steps being of
the same m itei ml The surface water has
inrcohitud lluougli tho roof, and the steps
ait consequently sllppei), rendering nny
exploration of the place somewhat risky.
Workmen have now linked the upper ex

apartment attached id the belfrj tower,

masonry c in be moie easily visited.
The passage, on leaving tho Curfew
