I can't keep them together any longer. Now!" Brav? and plucky and cool she was. She obeyed him Instantly. There was a mighty heave, a terrible straining of the hack and the knees, and Pirate was freed of his precious burden. The hardest part of it came now. Dick could no?? be made to slow down abruptly. He wanted to keep right on after his rival. So, between holding the girl with his right arm and pulling the horse with hla left. Warburton saw that he could keep up this terri? ble effort but a very short time. Her anas were convulsively wound around his neck, snd this added to the strain. Not a word did ahe say; her eyea were closed, ss if she expected any moment to be dashed to the earth But Dick was only a mortal horse.
