't is so," said Philip, Gomes.,why
mot attack?" 'a
"It can be done," said Gomes, daring
a look of hatred at Garma.
It was not the desire of Gomes just
then to shorten, the battle. Mattasado
had not yet returned-from the evil er
rand upon which he had been sent.
But tae commands of Philip must be W
obeyed.
Then it was that Salvares was start
led by the shouts of his men. e
From the battlements. outside the sc
eastle came a company to drive the be- V
asegers away.
Salvares shouted Qut an order to his Pi
loldlera. They had been impatiently ot
'waiting for the time to come when 0
riles and pistols could be used in the at
defense of their country, instead of eE
cannon, which accomplished nothing. ri
They rallied around their courageous al
leader. ra
"Fire!" he commanded. 0
A volley was fired, and a dozen of a
the men of Philip lay dead, and a score 51
wounded. Yet the remainder did net
slacken the speed at which they ad- a
Saneed.
They returned the fire.
Several of the soldiers of Salvares a
enll. a
Selvares gave the command to fire a
again. a
The advancing enemy now,. Instead
of coming straight for Salvares, made f£
for the trees and found shelter.
Then began a sost of guerrila fight- t
tag, neither side gaining the advant- t
age. Firing by volleys was out of the
question. Every man .found a tree and r
fired from behind it whenever he saw
the head of an enemy.
This lasted a half-hour.
Then Mattasudo appeared near the ii
group of officers around Philip of Ara
gon.
"It is done. She is safe," he whisp- v
ered in the ear of Gomez.
Gomez turned to Philip. d
"It has lasted long enough," he said.
1 "I will now show your majesty how to
i deal with those who oppose you." d
I He gave the word to Mattazudo.
The two hundred Zambos under the
command of the rascally half-breed r
swept out of the battlements, and
gaining the rear of Salvarez, began as
attack.
Men of the republic fell by dozena
"It is of no use," said Salvarez. "Our t
men canont hold out. We cannot hope
to win. Another time, and the castle
shall be ours."
He gave the order to retreat.
His men, being familiar with the t
ground, melted away from before the I
Eambos, and when there were no more
soldiers to pursue, the Zambos re- t
turned to the castle.
* Philip, Gomez and Don Juan stood I
and watched the return of their army I
from the scene of its second victory.
"We are invincible," said Philip. S
'You are king," said Don Juan.
CHAPTER VII.
The Powder Mine.
"If this is our last match, shall we
ase it now, or save it for another 1
d time "
L. Medworth had asked this question
when Tempest had handed him the
. tatch in the underground passage
where the Americans had lost their
way in the darkness.
They felt along the moist, slippery
walls, and slowly made their way from
one cavernous chamber to another, but
without success. After several hours at
this work they seemed to have accom
plished nothing.
SAnd, in fact, they had not accom
plished anything.
The caverns in which they were were
not under the castle of Salvares. But
they were not far away from it.
From the entrance at the river bank
to the opening In the foundation walls
the way was crooked enough. One
Sneeded to be familiar with the passage
to find his way.
Medworth and Tempest were at least
p two hundred feet from the true pas
sage, and were going round and round,
following upon their own footsteps.
"We shall die here," said Medworth.
"We have no food."
"Don't weaken." said Tempest.
"Keep a stiff upper lip and perservere
ain the search."
SAgain they tried to find the entrance,
but did not seceed.
Meanwhile, what of Salvares?
When he retreated from the Zambos
he picked up his wife and daughter,
and withdrew to a safe distance from
the eastle to allow his soldiers time
to recuperate.
He remained here until nightfall;
them, with a half esean of hidi btavesti
r offioeer, he left his wife and Jacnta
1 with the army, and stealthily made his
I't way toward the castle,

An orderly was called.
"Request General Gomes to come
here at once," said Philip.
The orderly saluted.
"GeneraLGomes is not in the castle
your majesty," he said.
A quick look of intelligence Sashed
between Don Juan and Philip.'
"Do you know where he has gone?"
"No, you majesty. He left some
time ago. He ordered his horse, and.
sand nothing about hi. destination or
the time of his return.
"Did he go alone?"
"He went alone."
"Very well.' You may go."
The orderly withdrew.
"What shall we do?" asked Philip.
"I must follow Gomes,"' said Don
Juan. "I would advise that you re
main here, and act as if nothing
had happened. If you should leave
the castle, the alarm would in some
way reach Gomez. I shall ride out and
find him.".
" so, then, and if you find he has h
been a traitor, shoot him."
Don Juan left the castle.
"Bring me a horse at once," he said
to the orderly.
The horse was breught.
"Do you know which way General
Gomes went from here" asked Doe
Juan.
"He started toward the south," was
the reply.

QUERn MRS. HILLER.
spease sse,eee** r masuoleam ees
eseoeo fer arial ormes.
There will be no litigation over the
will. eo Mrs. Frances B. Hiller of Cam
bridge, Mass., who has been described
as the most eccentric woman that ever
lived in New England, and whose Vag
aries interested the entire country at
different times. According to the com
promise, Mrs. Lucy M. Hill of George
town, British Guiana, a daughter, the
second husband of the testator and
Mrs. Mary A. Jeens of Bristol, Eng
land, a sister of -Mrs. Hiller, divide the
bulk of the estate, which is estimated
at $44,000. It has been supposed that
the estate was worth at least $1,000,
000. The small value of the estate has
occasioned great surprise, as formerly
Mrs. Hiller was considered very
wealthy. She died on May 18, 1900,
and was placed in a casket that cost
$50,000 and was laid at rest in a $500,
000 mausoleum, both of which were
built under her special direction sev
eral years before her death. After her
first husband's death, Mrs. Hiller
startled the community by marrying
her coachman, Peter Surette, who for
a large money consideration agreed to
change his name to ITiller. A pretty
niece of Mrs. Hiller gave Surette a
sound thrashing with an umbrella by
way of protesting against the match.
By her first husband Mrs. Hiller warn
the mother of twenty-three children,
all of whom are dead except the daugh
ter mentioned in the will. Albert W.
Ryerson of Detroit announced after
Mrs. Hiller's marriage to her coach
man that she had asked him (Ryer
son) to marry her, offering him $100,
000 in cash and $200.000 a month be
sides. He refused and married a De
troit girl. Mrs. Hiller had her burial
I robes made in Paris. The outer one
was of richest corded silk, decorated
with 500 yards of hand-made silk lae
and trimmed with 5,000 English
t daisies, embroidered by the most skill
ful artists of France. The robe was
fastened with 500 silver hooks. It cost
S$20-000 and the undergarments $5,000
