"And I here given you my heart
long ago. Klas me, Tom."
They sat there, closely press'ed to
gether in that narrow space, scarcely
aware any longºer of the danger at
hand. eager only to hear each other's
voice. Above " the crackle of the
flamee, and the crashing of falling
timbers, they could dlstinguish the in
termittett crack of a rifle, and the
echo of voices calling. Shelby began
to dig with one hand at the pile of
earth besde him so as to widen the
space between Its summit and the
roof. The actiou caused his mind to
revert to the imminent peril of their
"It will be all over with before day
light." he said soberly. "and that will
be our chance to get out."
"How do you suppose M:aklin ever
got through there?" she questioned
"That's what bothers me. Either
he wasn't hurt much, or he had help.
It is my notion the girl brought him
out In some way. The shooting was
an act of sadden anger, for which she
was sorr the very next moment. They
may be hiding there now, somewhere
in the tunnel."
She lifted herself up and peered
through the opening: the glare of the
Sames did not penetrate beyond the
harrier of earth and she saw nothing
but mlapenetrable blackness.
"Shall we go. and seer"
"Not yet: we are safer here, until
thoqe devils give up. You can hear
their volces yet out there."
They had no way of telling time,
and the hours dragged. The sound of

sheets at volces died away one after
the nther. Shelby waited patiently,

As they turned Into the ravine they
obtained a glimpse of the burned
eahbln. One wall yet stood,1ragged
against the rsky. and there was a gleam
of red embems. Occaslonally a gust
of air sent sparks flying upward and
spirals of black smoke were visible.
No moving forms could be perceived
about the ruins, and it was evident the
spot was still in a condition to renmer

at that fire, and It is no light load
I've got on my back."
The way was a rough one, strewn
with stones, but well protected by
high banks. on either side. Psncha
seemingly knew every inch of it, for
she advanced confidently, selecting the
easier path. So they came to the end
of the cleft, where it terminated at
the bank of the creek.
The light from the slowly graying
sky overhead scarcely penetrated the
depths of the ravine, and to the bur
den of earaing the heavy body of
Mackiln was added the weariness of
the frequent stumbling over the stones
with which the path was strewn. Olga,
fighting off the deadly faintness which
threatened' every moment to overcome
her, bore her share of the burden with
a courage that moved her husband
strongly, Inasmuch as he felt he was
nearlng the end of his strength and
realisea what the strain must be on
The events of the next hour re
laalned in Shelby's mind more like
some terrible dream than a remem
brance. He was conscious of belng
excesslvely worn. hungry, tired. His
mind did not function, yet he clung
doggedly to his task, with teeth
clinched, and every muscle aching
from the effort. Macklin moaned once
or twice, but without regaining con
sclousness, and twice Shelby felt com
pelled to lay the wounded man on the
ground, while he regained suffielent
strength to, proceed. Once they en
deavored to shift the burden, Olga in
sisting on helping him to bear the
man. But this proved impracticable,
and again Shelby shouldered the body
and staggered blindly up stream.
