He pressed rnmething in the side

stantly into pitce. I was left nlone,
staring at the spot where he had dis
appearet!. Beyond doubt the, entrance
awaiting me lay straight ahead. eon
cealed by the hanging cturta:in. I
stepped enutlouslyororw-ardl. listening
for some guiding tseind fromn Iceyontd
that harrier.i afrlid( to draw it aside
and take a blind plunge into the un
known. I could detect the murmur of
voices, several of theml sptalraking Span
9 ish, yet in such low tines I ctulld dis
tingulsh only an occasional empha
sized word. There was,no door he
e tvwen us: only that thick. hangng cur
tain, and I ventured far enough to
draw this aside sufficient to peer
k through with on.e eye. Beyond was a
t reasonably large room, but so dimly
lighted as to be scarcely visible from
end to end. I could discern men pres
ent, a number of them, lounging about
on chairs, their outlines being fairly
revealed, but the light was not sum
clent to glyv, me any impression of
their faces. It seemed quite possible
that I might slip In unobserved, and
pasr among them unrecognized except
through arccident. But the risk of dis
covery was too great. I must find some
other point of entrance.
The private doorway through which
Wine has disappeared gave me the
thought that there might also be oth
ers. I dare not follow after him, but
if there was another opening to be
found I was perfectly willing to ex
plore into its mysteries. The search
was brief, yyt the very nature of the
rough board wall made concealment
impossible. Iehind the dangling coats
I uncovered what I sought, and not a
moment too soon. Even as my hand
touched the exposed latch, a murmur
of voices la the outer entry reached
my ear--there were new arrivals be
ing questioned. and admitted.
The panel slid back silently in its
grooves, and I peered through the re
Vealed opening into absolute darkness.
All I could be sure of, as exhibited by
the dim light of the passage. was a
alnxie step downward, and then ap
parently a strip of earth Boor. I dare
not wait and meet those entering;
there was but one choice of action. I
pressed through thq orifice, forced the
panel hack into playe, and stood erect
in the intense darkness and silence,
listening for the slightest sound.
I was still motionless, my heart
beatang fiercely, when several men en
tered the passage I had just left.
Prsslng my ear against the thin crack
I distinguished words so as to piece
together scraps of conversation. It
seemed to me there were three voices
-one speaking Spanish entirely, the
others using English. One of the lat- t
