In fact, they stopped lo rest very, very often. They would scamper alnffg a few feet, then stop under cover of a mass of old dead grass while Danny looked and lis tened and listened and looked to make sure that the way was clear for the next run It was one of these times while they were resting that there was e sudden snuffing sound th-t sent cold shlverg all over them It was Bow ser the Hound who happened alone just then and stopped to sniff in the very patch of grass under which >hey were hiding You know It Is Bowser's way to sniff at everything as he goes along "Quick!'' cried !>anny, and darted out from und* r ihe grass and Into a little hole among the roots of a tree Nanny followed and there they (anted with excitement re Bowser clumsily tried to dig them out and couldn't because of the roots Bow ser didn't really want them He just tried to catch them for the fun of It. and when he found he couldn't he soon gave up and trott>*d off As soon as they were sure he was out of the way they started on.

I aaid to myself wonder Ingly. "he did start to sa\e him and then he deliberately turned around and came back." I had thought many things of Irtrk but I had never thought him a coward. Indeed, much as I hated him at that momen, great as was the contempt In my heart for him, aa little as I could understand his motives. I could not thtnk that the man who was trying so hard to bring back life to the man he had let die was a despicable coward. And yet—there could be no expla* nation Since the world began the only difference between man and brute was that man came to his kind In time of need and the brute let hla kind die —alone Why then had Dick done thia? By what twist of the brain could he ever Justify himself to himself, let alone to me. "It waa too bad you did not see him, sir." said one of the life savers "You might have held hun above water until we got there " ‘ And we might hare had two dead men Instead of one," said hie com pan ion "The gentlemtn was all tn when he rearbed shore, as It waa." At thla point Dick, without e word', dropped forward on the body of Mai colm B*uart in a d*’ad faint. The surgeon had said. "It la no use. toys, the man Is dead."
