tho sand and gone off to tho land of
Nod. They camo faintly at first and
mingled with tho murmurlngs of tho

might have imagined that they were the
haunting voices of tho weo Mexican children
whose blood he hod 60 ruthlessly
shed that morning. Hut he heard them
not They were very far from being
ghostly voices, anyway tho so tones
that now piped forth so merrily as
Dubs and Gay trudged down tho line.
They were walking In tho scoop-out
along tho road-bed not. on the track,
for that was forbidden.
There were other things that were
forbidden, too, and one of them was
straying so far awoy from the station.
But Dubs was "taking good caro" of
his sister, and In the
pride of his six full years he was equal
to the caro of half a dozen such as Gay,
To gtyo Dubs all due credit ho did
not know ho was half a mllo from
home, and ho really was going to turn
back pretty soon. But tho children had
found many interesting and beautiful
things to claim their attention. First
there had been a chaso after a young
Owl that could not fly, and that made
it way ahng in tho most haphazard
manner Imaginable. Then a horned
toad had been captured, and Dub had
dragged tho disgusted prisoner along
by a string until ho had tired of the
sport and had let htm go again. Then,
always keoplng close to tho railroad,
thoy had entered a great field of cacti,
Whore Dn't had tried very bard to pick

spines In his Angers.
He was fairly tmctensful, but ho would
pot let the fruit of tho cactus go Into
his sister's chubby hands until it had
been stripped of IU dangers by his

camo suddenly from under
Day's sunbonnet, "wot's dat?"
"W'y, It's a jugl" and Dubs left tho
"toonles" and started towards tho pile
of rock whero lay tho Coyote's
imself. and whero also lay the Coyote
Tho two trudged up tho little slope,
and Dubs grasped the handle of the
demijohn, only to let It drop again and
spring baok quickly with Gay In his
arms. For ho had caught sight of tho
Coyote, and he was smitten with a sudden
desire to go home.
But he saw the Indian did not move,
and so he suddenly became very brave,
lie was certainly sound asleep, and no
more to be feared than papa whon he
lay on the lounge in his midday repose.
Then, too, Dubs was quite sure ho
was a "worky Injun," liko tho Yaquls
who shoveled and picked on the rail
road, and so his mind became,wholly
Tho Coyote's cartridge bolt, which
had been so loosely strapped, had fallen
off and lay by his side. Them wore a
hundred very Interesting bits of brass
sticking In It and the children soon
had these scattered all about In tbe
sand by tho snoring Coyote, In tho
scramble for her share of tho Innocent
toys, Gay let ono of them drop on tho
Coyote's leg. Perhaps the mescal's Influence
was nn tho wane, for a big
brown knen was thrust quickly up
from the sand, and a big brown hand
clutched the ugly knife at the Coyoto's
aide; but the hand fell, aud the noble

Dubs trlod on the cartridge belt and
lecamo an Indian, all but the
knife, and be concluded to
borrow that fr"m the sleeper, whose
tngers had loat their grip on tho buck-torn

"Now he'll want his knife."
Suro enough, tliu

Quito vigorously, but tho last two big
(wallows of mescal hold him down.
So, after turning over, and burying his
face In the sand, he lay
When lie had thus turned oer, was
brought Into view the rifle, which had
been concealed by his dirty blanket
Dubs eyed tho weapon with covetous
eyes. IIu could not withstand
tho temptation of feeling It all over,
atandlng it up on Its butt and trying to
shoulder It, but this last feat he could
hardly accomplish. Just what it was
that kept his lingers off the hammer
and trigger, and prevented a sound
that would surely have brought the
Coyote to his feet u Ith a yell, I am
suro I cannot tell, but Dubs played
with that fascinating weapon foruearly
an hour, while Gay poured sand over
the cartridges, hiding nearly all of
them from vlow.
By this time tho sun's rays wcro on tho
long slant and tho children were very
hungry. By tliU time, too, tho Apache
was growing restless, for tho mescal
had nearly lost lu grip upon him. A
train thundering by, or, much less, a
"swift" brushing against his black
foot, a spider dropping on his leg, or
even a big ily buzzing at his ear any
of these Mould have Set his demon
force Into play again.
But tho children could not watt for
such demonstrations as these, though
why It did not occur to Dubs that the
Coyoto's ear heeded tickling with a
grease-wood twig, tho Lord only
knows. Tho wind was up and tho
wires wcro murmuring louder than
ever. The weo ones hod sported In
the block shadows long enough had
played with tho of the deadly
serpent until they wcro tired and their
stomachs Were empty. So they set off
on a trot for home.
Just as they turned tho bend and
came In sight of the low roof of tho
station, a "dust-devil" swept by the
rocks whero lay the
Ho jumped to his feet grasped his
empty sheath, gave a mad whoop and
stared about In feverish rage. Thero
was his knife, half covered by tho
sand, and there was his rifle, far from
his side. Hero was tho cartrldgo belt,
empty, and all about him In tho sand
wero countless little footprints.
A bewildered look stole over his face,
but It passed away when his eyo rested
on tho empty demijohn. Tho expression
that replaced it was one of demoniacal
ferocity, and tho lust of
slaughter lay heavily u.pon him. But
