In speech, these Best People are a trifle

awam against the damp gray stream of cloud,
their eyes fixed tensely on the compa.-s an.l
leromi terj for here these two delicate in*
itromenti were tlieir only help. They would
have lost their way if they had looked out into
the cloud mist
Then StefTeck choked the motor. At the
same moment they heard the smothered re
porti of guns.
Glidlng carefully, Steffeck sank deeper. Now
the under surface of the cloud bank was
reached. Btowly the earth emerged from the
gray and took form. Right undi r the shelter
offering cloud rim Steffeck jjuided the ma

The whole widespread battlefield lay be
neath them. with ita woods and hills, its vil
lagei and roads, cut through by | glistening
river to the far spaees of the horizon. On the
i rown hills the other side of tho river the sun
rays lay golden.
Suddenly Wegehaupt detected the march of
ths enemy. DarLi-h, s.-arcely di.-tinguishable
lines moved on the roadways. pushing slowly
trward the northwest. There?-there?and
there. On all the roads he saw the enemy'*
II.- gazed through the glass. Dirootly under
them he noticed an ant-like stirring of agitat
id men. By the short trousers and Noo
jackets be judged them to be Zouaves. They
had leen the machine. An entire eompany ap
peared to bc shooting upward. But their shots
did not reach.
A wild satisfaction rioted in his blood. He
felt the thousands of eyes which now rested
sngrily upon him. The lust of destruction, of
slaughter, came over him. He reached for a
bomb, Intending to send ft through the dis
iharge tube down on the human swarm below.
Just then his eyes caught the distant rail
load blidge spanning tho river. Like a llash
the thought camo to him: "Save your bombs
for it!" He reached for tbe SfTOWl instead
rr.d scattered a handful of those pointed ste.-l
rods, much as Jupiter hurls his thundcrbolts.

glass downwerd.

ZoaaVM were :cattering wildly. TWO, three,
bodies iay fiat on the ground. The machine
Ircjran to jerk. Before and behind it appeared
the familiar whitx- shrapnel cloud.-. On all
sides thi> shells exploded. It was with diffl
culty that thc ear caught something of the re
jrorts of ihe guns ? it was only a hollow mur
mur like that of the distant sighing of a forest.
Wegehaupt was calm again. ( old-bloodedly
he uketched in on his map tho probablo
strength of the enemy on the various roads.
From time to time he gave Steffeck the diree?
tion. When he finished his ohservation. they
vanished Into the shelter of the clouds, to ap?
pear again in another place and continue their
work of espionage.
NOW Weaehaupt was ready. He fidgeted in
his narrow aeat Uke th" tehoolboy oa ? beneh
who has flnished his lesson. Hi-* eye sought
again thc distant bridge. There it was.
"The railroad bridge!" he eiied to Steffeck.
The latter nodded and corrected his dire.
t:on. Then he drove the machine in a mad
curve into Ihe clouds. For fully ten minutes
they flew with strained nerves. Soon they
mrnt reach the bridge. Wegehaupt looked

they came again into the clouds. He turned
