I ran and dodged into a sloping

In two or three seconds the explo

I immediately scrambled up, drawing
the girls after me. When we reached
the top we found a slight depression
in which we could conceal ourselves
from the eyee of any person below,
while from the rim I could command
the approaches on every side. I placed
Miss Grayman and Susan where they
were perfectly protected and then, pis
tol in band, crept to the edge and
carefully looked over In the direction
of the marsh.
Afar off I saw the Osprey speeding
awav on the course that I bad given
ner and which they bad evidently been
unable to control. The Chameleon
still hung tattered overhead, slowlj
circling. I bad scarcely raised mj
head a little higher when I caught
sight of Payton in the brush, calling
and gesticulating to his men, who soon
came into sight behind blm. They
were all dripping and bedaubed with
mud. and a more savage looking trio
I never beheld. To my diamay I saw
that they all carried rifles.
I bad no weapon but my automatic
pistol, which contained ten shots, be
sides twenty in my belt. It was a
slight preparation for a siege, but I
bad the advantage of the natural for
tification of the rocks.
And now a new cause of anxiety
presented itself. It was evident that
the Chameleon was gradually being
brought to earth. I saw signals ex
changed between ber and Payton. Bis
men on the Chameleon bad seen us,
and I saw from their motions that they
were pointing us out.
He knew how to manage his cam
paign. He sent his two men around
to the northeast and northwest sides,
while be himself guarded the south.
Then we were surrounded.
The question now was. How large a
re-enforcement would Payton receive
when bis aero succeeded in landing?
MUs Gayman thought five bad fallen.
In that case our enemies would num
ber only five in all, and Payton's ac
cession of force would be two men.
Still, tt would be terrible edds. since
they bad guns and I only a pistol.
The open ground around as was suf
ficiently broad to require several min
utes Tor a runner to cross it. aiy
task was to keep a sharp watch on all
sides and prevent an approach.
I ran round the parapet, as 1 may
call it. peering out in every direction.
Miss Grayman. comprehending what 1
was about and seeing my difficulty,
offered to aid me. 1 refused at first,
fearing to expose her to a shot, but
she eagerly Insisted, and I let her take

ner watcb, being extremely careful not
to expose the least part of ber person
and to give me warning if any one
tried to approach the rocks from her
side. I did not know at what moment
the rush might come.
There were yet several hours of day
light, and if 1 could stand Payton off
long enougb 1 felt confident that our
friends on the Osprey would manage
to ground her if they could not re
verse ber course and would come to
our rescue. I counted a great deal on
the sagacity of Mr. Grantham and the
experience and devotion of Ethan
On the other hand, we were without
provisions and water. I felt the more
sure that Payton would make a rush
because he must understand that aid
would reach us before long, and 1 was
puzzled at his delay after the arrival
of his two men from the Chameleon.
But presently 1 discovered the rea
son and felt my face turn pale.
Out of the brush where the Chame
leon lay a kite began to rise.
The wind was in such a direction as
to carry it directly over us. 1 knew
instantly what it meant, and it made
my heart sink. Without explaining
my motives, for they had not seen the
kite. I immediately led the two girls
into a corner of the rocks, where a
ledge projected so as to make a kind
of roof, while in front of the bears'
den thus formed another ledge rose,
leaving only an irregular, narrow open
ing. I hurried them in here, saying:
"I think they are going to fire a shell
at us, but in here you will be perfectly
safe." and 1 turned to leave them.
"But you,"- exclaimed Miss Gray-
man, detaining me, with an expression
of concern that thrilled me "you must
not expose yourself while we are cov
ered!" "I'll look out for cover." I returned,
"but I must first make sure what they

The pirate and his companions ran
with the speed of deer.
Presently he was within twenty-five
yards. I could not be mistaken in
him a broad breasted mark, making
straight for my pistol, leveled through
a triangular crevice. I felt that I
could not miss him, and growling
through my clinched teeth. "I've got
you now!" I fired.
But at that very instant Payton's
foot caught and down he fell, my bul
let singing over him. His wits work
ed like lightning. He had heard the
shot, and Instead of rising he rolled
into a depression.
I knew I bad not hit him, but I
could not see him where he lay.

speed, bringing his ride to his shoul
