shut i.t so lie horrible sight. As for me, I
was rigid. Then he went on:
"STreaming with a pain more hoirible

What was this' Something dark brown,
w ater-soiked and stickj-, but presenting,
nevertliiless, a poor pretence of a weapon

at my assiilants right and left. I did ter-
j rible execution with in) newly found
weapon, and sent hundreds of the gray
devils back luto the stream of

conquerable numbers. I began to feel the

Delirium lav hold of mv blood, and I lieir&n
to feel a wild, demoniacal zest in mj battle
with that death thatwasapproachlng. With
redoubled fury I rained blows on the
squeaking horde about me, and fought un
til, in the dead. dNgutting atmotphere of
the sewer, the sweat poured from me in
streams. Suddenly a gray, fantastic light
began to dance dow n the sew er toward me
an underground w ill o' the w Up, born of the
hortiblo gates in the place. As It hovered
past me like a gray phantom, ghottliy
lighting up my battle ground to
new hoirors, I parted for one cost!)
ii.ttaut to gaze at the weapon iniuj hand.
It was the water-soaked and half-gnawed
remains of a human leg! In ui) delerium
I laughed aloud until, nerhitit. mv maniac

Paris, ov erhead. I looked at that dull.
brown human leg In ui) hands, and won

"I thought that I had Listed of horror to
its deepest dregs, but listen! Just as I was
about to give up and plunge forward, fact)!
dow nw anl, to drown In the slow, central,
sluggish current of slime, and cheat the
rats of at least the pleasure of eating me
alive, a wild, new noise rang )es, rang in
that thick atmosphere tlown the sewer.
Instantly twenty rats stopped eating
me and dropped with as
many plashes back Into the
slime. There was a turbulent plunging
and plath'ng, as of a lieavj body in water,
and the semi-liquid current was churned as
though b) a coming squall, giving oif terri
ble stenches meanw hlle as It was agitated.

came plunging toward me bellow ing,
shrieking and gesticulating a horror in a
newsnape. v as it a man? It must have
been, for it had the form ot one, though It
ran on all fours. It came nearer ! In the
blue, hoirible light that sin rounded It, I
studied its ver) detail and now they are
bui it 'nto my brain like copper into gold.
I see It all again the long beard, dripping
with filth and water; the lank, long body,
covered with a thick growth of hair, gray
like a rat; the erect bristles about the
note; the great claw-like hands dripping as
it rote to an erect jiotition; the w hole body
coated with sMme like a tortoise n a swill
tub; the wild, wllde)es, rolling hoinbly.
but, as 1 soon learned, sightless robbed
of their power of vision like ever) thing

living in the sewer, of the sewer, on the

the most enormous rat I ever saw his

"It stood over a foot high, and was scaired
and crusted with age and adventure. It
fawned upon him as he stood still and
sniffed like a dog to seek my whereabouts.

struck him full in the face with the human
bludgeon I held in my hand. With a howl
of pain and rage he chattered out what was
evidently a command to the great rat b
side him, but the words were not of earth.
Instantly the animal sprang forward and
fattened Its sharp teth in my leg. Imagine
this monster and the other one that danced
and splashed his devilish joj In the slime
of the sewer as he heard my crj of pain.
Sudileulj he stopped, filled his mouth with
the reeking liquid pestilence of the stream,
and spurted it full into in) fate. Blinded.
