Herbert Archer watched him anx

It was not long before he did so, and

"His hat! Where is it?"
"Where? In the water, a course.
You don't think I was such an idiot as
to fish it out?' ejaculated Mat (ireeve,
contemptuously. "I ain't anxious for

"Not you. I might; but I don't see

wouldn't lit my pea-shooter, and," as
Herbert Archer started, then turned
fiercely, "it would never be suspected
that I'd used yours. It's my advice now
that we make tracks for home."
"Yes. We must not be seen near
this spot, lint about l'hilip 15athurst?"
"Without this alters his plana he sets

Herbert Archer found it difficult to

over a drowned man.

risen early and strolled out.
Hut when hour after hour went by,
and no Mark, the intelligence of his
disappearance was communicated to
the colonel, and finally to l'hilip Bath

aroused. Had he strolled into the bush
and lost himself?
Had he fallen into the clutches of
Inisli-rangers, or some evil-disposed ab
origines? Mark had already become a favorite,
and search parties 'were eagerly formed.
All through the day the bush rang with
the peculiar Australian crv. "co-hee,"
but no answer came. Xiht fell, and
the parties returned dispirited, unsuc

say, colonel. There can bo no doubt

to the kitchen.
"That is a strange, fearless, and per
severing race," ho remarked. "That
fellow has. he says, come all the way
from Sydney, getting a lift where be

As far as 1 can see, be has small capital

fully of his future."
"Which, being a Jew." said Philip,
trying to smile, "will, acceding to the
world's opinion, be golden. At least,
we must confess that idleness is not
their failing. They may wither, but
they never rust. You say, colonel, that
he is bound for the diggings. 1 owe
him something for bringing me this
memento of poor Mark. If he is not
in a hurry, let him bear me company to
morrow. He can ride my foster-brother's
horse, for which 1 can get a better
price at the diggings than here."
"That's true; and if this Jew. Philip,
be an honest Jew. be sure another of
their failings is not ingratitude."
The Jew, on hearing the proposal,
jumped at it with delight. and wan by no
means loth to pass the evening by the
comfortable fire over which be cowered,
his deafness debarring him from joining
much in the conversation. Hut if bis

Three weeks had elapsed since Philip
Hat hurst had joined the motley crowd
at the diggings, and fortune had not
been unkind to him.
All day he worked, and in the night
built castles for the future, wherein
Flo nlayed the principal part. Hut for
Mark's death never would digger have
been more jolly.
When a mail is in that humor he gen

apologetically, announced his desire to

He compassionated him also for bis
infirmity of deafness, which was so
great that it isolated him from all. for
no one paid heed save Philip to "Deaf

In the breast-pocket of bis garibaldi

as the re-perusal of these.
His candle lighted he employed some
of his time in reckoning nn Ins gains.
They almost exceeded his hopes.
"If matters go on like this," he re

Silence had scarcely fallen over tho
camp when the opening :f Isaac Lewis's
tent was slightly raised, and the Jew
crept forth. Keeping in the shadow,
he crawled to the darkest side of Philip
Hathurst's tent, drew out his knife,
made a deep rent in the canvas, and
pulled himself through.
The-young man's breathing told
where lie. laid, the Jew stole along to
his side, then quickly placed one hand
on his shoulder, and one on his mouth,

"If ve are sthill. ve vill catch Ym,"
whispered Isaac. " Ve vill unmask 'em;
th".v shall not escape. He, be. he."
Even as he spoke, a blue thread of
light, as that which betrays a powder
train, darted from the direction of the
Jew's tent to Philip's, entering it at the
part w here his bed was.
There was a loud explosion, a glare
of light, and the tent was burled into
Philip and Lewis were Hung to the
ground from the concussion, but sw iftly
they sprang to their feet, and in the
glare of the blazing tent came almost
fai l to face with two rough diggers
who were advancing rapidly.
"That's 'i ni." cried the .few. "Seize

Tlie villains had, however, already
leaped back; as one did so, he aimed
his revolver and tired.
Philip llathurst gave a leap in the air
and fell with a groan to the ground.
Isaac Lewis, uttering almost a howl
of rage, sprang forw ard, discharging his

parently without effect, for they never
slopped in their flight, and speedily
were lost in the darknens.
The Jew did not pursue. Instead,

imagined. Indeed, jt was not serious,

might lie in ambush for the two.

that he, even remotely, rejoiced that

curve of her throat, tho rose flush on

After he bad won her pity, and his
rival had departed, he had been a fre

His manner, however, had been so
respectful and unobtrusive, that any
awkwaidness Flo had felt soon woro

greater regard than she had ever done
Herbert Archer was not slow to per
ceive this and to work upon it, taking
care to make her fearless in bis pres

quered that love which, in truth, was
consuming him as a furnace the re
