great city tfcut was evi lenced in his garb
and manner. -
This was Frank Brys-on, a nephew of old
Jerry Alderson. He vas born in Rock
port, bttx. on the death of bis father, while
be was aH a babe, hit mother had been
driven to seek a liveliiood in the city of
The boy was not Rtronir, and his mother
had sent him to the old home with the hope
that the change of see le and tlie bracing
sea ait- nv'K.it bring t le health which the
crowded city had denitd him.
When Jerry Alderson and his family
started for Sedgwick, Frank was left lie
hind, the fatigue of so ,ong a journey being
deemed too great for his enfeebled con
dition. Frank, who was a crenmer, as all boys
are, lay there on his lefty perch watching
thereeeding tide, while his mind was oc
cupied with a series of the most enchaining
pictures ever painted by the youthlul im
agination, lxiwer an I lower the lioilins
waters fell, disclosing' lie black and jagged
rocks at the foot of tho cliff.
After a time the boy sat up, looking over
toward the village as if to assure himself
that be was unwatclied, but the jutting
rocks effectually hid him from the view
of any who might lie lisposed to look that
lie drew from his pocket a luncheon of
bread, dried fish and cheese, a portion of
which be proceeded to eat, carefully re
serving the remaiudei for his further need.
When be bad dispatched his frugal meal
lie opened a package which lay beside him
and examined with care the contents,
which were several candles, a box of
matches aud a quantity of thiu but strong
cord, such as the fish irmeu used for their
The tide was now ai its lowest ebb. The
boy brought from the minted bushes a
shovel aud a pick, which he attached to
the line, and, droppin them over the edge
of the cliff, lowered hem down into the
surging waters belo'v. Then he secured
the end of the line tc a stout stake which
he drove into a crevice of the rock.
Steadying himself with the cord the
youth began to clam I .or down the almost
perpendicular wall tx neath him. It was a
perilous descent, but the light frame and
clear head of t he youi g adventurer enabled
him to accomplish it without accident.
The spray dashed up by the waves fell
upon him like rain as- he paused to rest for
a moment on a narrow ledge at the base of
the cliff. Resuming his journey he care
fully advanced until he stood beside an
opening in the rock. The furious waters
boiled beneath him and at intervals a
wave higher than tlu rest threatened to in
Watching bis oppo tunity Frank placed
bis foot upon the dripping threshold, and
passed under the low, natural arch that
formed the upper patt of the opening. A
wave came hissing a ter him as if to drag
bini back, but he chug to the rugged .sides
of this strange doorway, and after a sharp
scramble stood upon the lloor of the cave
A Hush of triumph glowed upon the pale
cheek of the boy am; a new light gleamed
in his eye as he brolce the silence, saying:
"Here 1 am in King Solomon's tomb! It
was an awful jobtoj-et here, and J wonder
if i shall find what I came after?"
His audible soliloquy brought him tio re
sponse but the ech es which rolled and
reverlierated like distant thunder through
Frank relapsed i lto silence, but con
tinued his line of thought:
"It is strange that none of the people of
the village ever dared venture into this
cave. Really, I am a Christopher Colum
bus on a small si ale, discovering new
worlds, or, at least, reclaiming that which
has almost passed from the memory of
Remembering some ulterior purpose that
had brought him to the place lie hauled iu
the cord, which he slid retained in his
hand, until the s!i vel and pick, which
were attached to th-s end, clattered on the
lloor at his feet.
When this was do ae lie turned his atten
tion to his surroundings.
I'itchy darkness prevailed throughout
the cave, except lor i small space around
where the young explorer stood; there it
was relieved by the 'aint light which came
through the entrant e.
I,ii'hting a canill ! he held it aloft and
beheld a scene of da.'.zling beauty. A vast
gothic calhed ml see ned to rise out of the
darkness. Great i relies of living rock
formed the roof, Irom which depended
stalactites which rtfracted the light and
glittered with all tin hues of the rainbow.
The walls seemed set with rubies, dia
monds, emeralds a id sapphires, and the
drops of water as they fell upon the hard
floor and splashed in the rebound spread
a misty splundor through tlie empty space.
That one little caialle flame was multi
plied a thousand fold, tilling the boy wit Ii
awe and admiration at the beauty it re
vealed. In the middle of t he cave a large object
attracted Frank's a: tention. It. was a rock,
carved nnd fretted by nature's hand iulo
the most fantastic and beautiful designs
both in color and form. It seemed a huge
sarcophagus, gorgeously adorned, the last
resting place of one of the fabled giants of
"I see," cried the boy with enthusiasm,
"I see why the cave bears the name it does.
This is I lie coffin of King Solomon, as it is
It was, indeed, a tomb worthy of Israel's
Having satisfied himself as to the gen
eral appearance of the cave, Frank ap
proached the cofh'i for the purpose of
closely inspecting it. It was evidently a
bowlder detached lrom the roof, and had
no doubt lain in i s present position for
thousands of years.
Placing his candle upon a rock, he took
his pick and proceeded to make a careful
examination of the floor around the mimic
sarcophagus. At every stroke the point of
the implement eucoiiuLered the solid rock,
but the motive that inspired the labor
would not permit the boy to desist until
conviuced that the stratum upon which he
stood was intact, us nature's hand had
Wearied with hit exertions, be sat down
upon a projection t f the sarcophagus, and,
resting his head upou his hand, gave him
self up to ptofout d thought. His reflec
tions at last iound utterance in muttered
words. "Frank," said his inner self, "you
are disappointed aain. The pirate's gold
you expected to find behind the coffin of
Solomon is not the-e, and you will hitve to
return to Uoston as poor as you came."
Tears tilled the boy's eyes as the vision of
his gentle, p.Uefaed mother, weary and
worn with toil aud mxiety, rose before bira.
While he had be n engaged in Ids search
the tide had turned. A wuve rising to the
level of the lloor of the cave stole gently
toward him and b -oke in foam around his
feet. lie cast a startled glance at the en
trance, where he aw that the water had
risen high cnougl. to bar that avenue of
Another wave recalled him to a sense of
his immediate riat ger, and he flashed his
light around the ci.ve in search of a place
vl reiuge, ills eye resllug upuu a pai?
which had escaped bis attention before.
He saw a flight of irregular steps rising to
a ledge, which like a gallery extended
along the landw.ard side of the cave. It
took him but a moment tospiing upon the
lowest step, the foaming waters pursuing
him as he ascended. He was soon in a
place of safety. Here he could await the
subsidence of the tide, for It was clear that
the waters never reached this elevation.
From his perch he watched the inflowing
of the sea. The floor upon vhich he stood
was now covered, and Solomon's sarcoph
agus was being rapidly swallowed up.
A faint green light filtered through the
waters that filled the entrance, which
glowed dimly like an immense emerald.
The candle which the boy held in his
hand had hitherto burned quietly and
steadily, but now it suddenly flared and
was extinguished by a strong current of
air which seemed to issue from the back of
t lie cave.
Hemotnliering that the gallery extended
some distance beyond him, he moved for
ward cautiously, feeling his way with
hands and feet. He desired to obtain a
more sheltered position before relighting
Darkness, thick and impenetrable, sur
rounded him. The light from the outer
world had grown fainter, seeming to re
cede to an immeasurable distance.
Frank was not reckless, neither was he a
coward, but the tension of body and mind
were well nigh intolerable. !Ie panted
anil trembled, but pushed bravely on. He
was now beyond the reach of the current
of air, which began to sob and moan as it
was driven to and fro through the unseen
passage by the rise and fall of the waves.
Frank now paused, sitting down upon
the rock floor and extending his bands in
order to acquaint himself with the nnture
of his immediate surroundings.
His fingers in their search encountered
something, he knew not what, but' it
seemed to lie a human foot incased, in a
shoe. At the same time the horrible odor
of putrefaction greeted his nostrils. It
took but a moment for the boy to assure
himself that his conjecture was true, and
an involuntary cry burst from his lips.
Wrought up almost to madness he would
have tied but for the imprisoning dark
ness. When with trembling fingers he suc
ceeded in relighting his candle he saw the
body of a man lying before him, his feet
extending toward the spot where he sat.
The man was dead. His bend was pil
lowed upon a stone. Beside him were the
remains of a burned out cuddle, a pick and
a shovel. The face was swollen and dis
colored, and a dark spot that spread over
the floor beside biro indicated that be had
died from some injury which had been'at
tended with profuse hemorrhage.
The dead man was well advanced in
years. His hair was gray, verging to white.
His thin but muscular body was clothed in
threadbare garments, covered with darns
nnd patches. lie presented every appear
ance of extreme poverty.
Frank liegan to feel a sense of fellowship
with the unfortunate man who hail to all
appearances entered the cave on an errand
similar to his own, and for the moment
failed to discern t he sinister lesson taught
by his ghastly discovery.
Determined to know more of his silent
neighbor, he proceded to examine his
pockets. A well tilled purse, a pocket
knife, a small quantity of tobacco aud a
bunch of keys rewarded bis search.
There was a growing impression in the
I mind of the boy that he was about to un
I ravel the mystery which had agitated and
i perplexed the minds of the good people of
. Roekport for the past two months.
I Thus far he had discovered no clew to
the identity of the dead man. Jasper
Karch he had never seen, for this was his
first visit to Roekport since his mother's
! removal when he was an infant a few
months old. A closer examination of the
bunch of keys brought to light a small
brass check, which had engraved upon it
; the name of Jasper Karch.
So intense had been his interest in liU
search that Frank had forgotten every
thing but the mystery which was being re
solved under his hands. When the flicker
ing light of the candle revealed the name
of the man for whose murder-Jack Hast
ings was that day held responsible at the
bar of a court of justice, he shouted aloud,
his voice mingling with the strange sounds
that filled the cave:
'"I have found him! I have found him!''
The sound of his own voice recalled the
boy to a sense of his isolation, and raised
the question with increased interest as to
how he .should effect his escape with the
important information he had so strangely
He could not grasp the matter in all its
bearings, but he felt, t hat lie held the key
of Jack Hastings' prison cell iu his hands.
He looked down into the cave below
him. It was filled with surging waters.
He must wait titiiil the tide fell. But
when would that be!' He had U-en told
that the sea rarely receded sufficiently to
clear the mouth of the cave. Indeed, he
remembered that it was a matter of com
mon report that, for years the fissure was
not seen at all. It was t hen t he merest ac
cident that enabled him and his unfortu
nate companion to enter at till. He knew
that, lit best, the attempt was regarded as
so hazardons that no living inhabitant of
the village had ever undertaken to visit
The horror of the situation, intensified
by the presence of tlie dead man, who lay
among the shadows like an effigy carved
out of the rock, burst -upon the mind of the
young treasure hunter.
As a bust resort he thought of the aper
ture through which the current of air flow
ed, and had but little difficulty in finding
His light was extinguished as ho came
before the opening, but he was able to sat
isfy himself that it was sufficiently ca
pacious to admit the passage of two bodies
as large as his own.
Carefully placing in his pockets the arti
cles taken from the body of the dead mnu
he entered the opening and begau his per
The crevice through which he was crawl
ing Frank found to be a natural drain for
the surface ubove, leading up through the
ttrata in a most tortuous manner.
The boy had no means of judging the
flight of time, but days seemed to pass
while he worked his way laboriously along.
His hands were torn and bleeding, his
kuees were cut by the sharp edges of the
rocks and Lis clothes hung about him in
The wind howled and whistled around
him as it was drawn into the cave and ex
pelled again by the waves.
When hunger and thirst made themselves
felt he rememliered the remains of his
luncheon, and drawing it from his pocket
strove to eat.
Somewhat refreshed, Frank renewed his
snakeliko course, feeling that flesh mid
blood could bear but little more.
At last, to his inexpressible Joy, a faint
light appeared in the distance, which in
creased in volume nnd intensity m he ad
vanced, until he beheld the end of the
passage nnd the blue sky bpyond.
