Alan tested the bridge cautiously.
It bore him. He returned, helped Rose
to cross, and with her once safely
landed on the other side, took his life
in his hands and, aided by a Barcus
unaffectedly afflicted with qualms,
somehow or other (neither of them
knew precisely how) persuaded the
burros to cross.
After that, though the way grew
more broad and easy and even showed
symptoms of a decline, they had not
enough strength left to sustain
through another hour.
And what they thought good for
tune, opportunely at this pass, brought
them to a clearing dotted with the
buildings of an abandoned copper
mine. Not a soul was in evidence
there, but the rude structures offered
shelter for beast as well as man.
Barely had they made Rose as com
fortable as might be upon- the rough
plank flooring of one of the sheds
and tethered the burros out of sight,
when Alan collapsed as if drugged,
while Barcus, who had elected himself
to keep the first watch and purposed
doing it in a sitting position, with
his back against the door-jamb, felt
sleep overcoming him like a dense,

laughed at for all his pains.
- Then he was left to himself once
more, but only for a few moments;
the interval 'ended when the two ap

in similar fashion.
Not until she had been put down be
side him did he discover that Alan
was likewise a captive-trussed to a
tree at some distance.
The remaining arrangements of
their captors were swiftly and deftly
1consummated, though their design re

he, after Rose, was dumped like a bale

he estimated shrewdly, of something
like a hundred feet.
A hideous screeching followed, the

saw the dim opening of the shaft
slowly closing, as If a curtain were

Alan caught his friend's hand in

cus for taling their peril lightly, or
pretending to, for the sake of Rose.

with wooden ladders.
