- Even' as Pietro and Gambietta slept
in the shadows ot the oak a smart
trap came slowly down the winding
road from the cascade. ;
In the trap were a stern faced young
man and an unsmiling young woman.

see that everything was not entirely
pleasant between them. ' -
Indeed, they had fallen Into silence-,

The man finally broke the silence.
"Perhaps it would be better if I got

Terhaps it would," said the girl,

which she flicked the cob with the

The young man pricked up his ears,

he dropped the pipe and tore aown the

Around a bend in the path he sped,
