"Girls picking wild strawberries were talk ing that the day after to-morrow the people vote. They have a meeting this evening in Bocognano. I listened from behind a rock and heard them." But Barnes is not, so easy about his captured bride he1 steps out of the cabin and finds the wind has died away, the mist has cleared with the rapidity usual to mountain storms. He steps in and says anxiously to Marina: "The evening is very clear. You know my anguish—do you think yon have strength to venture down the heights, assisted by Tomasso and me, and enter your own village?" "Certainly, I am refreshed. Another cup of tea and I will go with you," cries the girl so eagerly that Barnes puts grateful eyes upon her, for he knows it is her spirit more than her strength that produces her assent to further journey. They are making hurried prepara tions to leave the cabin. Barnes is bending over the fire,' brewing Ma rina's tea—their guns, and even the American's revolvers are lying in their belt on the pile of boughs near the en trance. Tomasso is saying: "Will I not astonish the men who swore a vendetta against you for my death! 1 who am alive and—and—" when sud denly Tomasso stops. There is a rat tle in his throat that causes Barnes to look hurriedly up. Marina has retreat ed to the corner of the cabin and Mon aldi's eyes are full of horror. Just across the fire from him stand two dark mountaineers. Rough, un dressed sheepskins cover their brawny shoulders long guns are in their hands and stilettos in their belts. One is a big, powerful looking ruffian the other slighter, but his brown limbs lithe and sinewy. The eyes of both are shining malevolently in the blaze. "Corp di diavolo, this is a rare catch you have made, hermit bandit, whose name we do not know," chuckles the bigger of the two men "this Ameri cano whose pockets Saliceti declared were lined with gold, he whom we waited for and missed in the vale be low." 'Ah, you are Rochini and Romano, I believe from your speech, gentlemen says Barnes quietly. Aye, that we are. And who is this woman of the beautiful eyes? Hand thy captives over to us, hermit bandit. Divide your spoils with us and we will save you the trouble of cutting the man's throat," jeers the slighter mis creant. "As for the woman, the fire tells me she is very lovely both as to limbs and face, and I have a better use for her,' guffaws the bigger man. And never was Marina more beautf ful. She confronts the ruffians with undaunted mien, and says command ingly: "Fellows, dare to lay your hands on me and the whole of Bocog nano will hunt you down. The Bella coscia will destroy you. I am Marina Paoli." "Oh, she is merry with us, this girl who runs after foreign gentlemen. Now we will show her that Corsican kisses are as good as those of this Americano." Brutally they draw near to her. As the girl draws back from the contam inating clasp of the monsters, Tomas so, with a savage cry, and uplifted stiletto, stands between. In a second the old man will be dead under their knives and the brave girl their prey. Marina's undaunted eyes, turning In appeal to the American, see with astonishment that he makes no move to aid her, but is abjectly squirm ing toward the cabin door. Suddenly she utters a gasp of despair and a sigh of contempt this great pistol shot is running timidly away, flying out of the cabin, though as he passes the pile of boughs he seizes the belt holding his two revolvers. "He has the gold! After him!" cries Rochini. "We'll knife him in a minute!" yells Romano, and the two, cocking their guns, fly after the dastard American. But as they reach the door, the mo ment their athletic forms are outlined by the blaze of the fire, two quick, sharp pistol reports come from the outside, and Rochini and Romano, without even a cry, fall to the earth, inert and dead. The smoke of Barnes' revolvers is sues from them as he quietly re-enters and says apologetically: "I knew 1 wouldn't have time to grab my guns and shoot before they'd knife me, so I imitated the trick of Jerry, the Den ver barkeeper, and ran away till 1 could get my weapons ready." A moment later he says: "Come!" and taking Marina carefully in his arms, whispers: "Turn your face from them," and steps over the dead men lying in the entrance of the cabin. Behind him, Tomasso, following, car rying the American's rifle, is saying: "Oh, you will be worshiped in this commune for this. So many poor men have been butchered, so many poor women have been carried away to the mountains by these dead devils." But the reports have drawn others to the spot. As Barnes steps over the dead men lying in the entrance of the cabin, ho suddenly says: "By heaven, here are more of them!" puts Marina down and would dra.vv his revolvers American were he not seized by three athletic young fellows who rise silently from the shadows about them. A clear, commanding voice remarks: "No more of Rochini and his fellows. You have saved us the trouble of their killing. We are the Bellacoscia. Your pistols, stranger, have relieved us of the execution of these ruffians we were pursuing, who have brought discredit on the honored name of bandit." And Tomasso is crying, "Antonio Bonelli," to a man of noble bearing, who, carbine in hand, comes into the cabin followed by eight stalwart young men, all armed as he is. But the young men fear the super natural and stand back, their eyes gleaming, and one shudders: "'Tis the ghost of old Monaldi,. killed by De Belloc's troopers two weeks ago." For a moment, they would retreat, but their leader laughs at them: "'Tis flesh and blood that is kissing my hand." And old Tomasso says: "You know how well the troopers shoot. Do you think they'd hit a man at 200 yards hiding behind a rock in the gloom of the morning?" But the flashing-eyed man orders. "Stand back, while question this stranger who has dene Boccgnano a service to-night." Marina has risen, murmuring: "An tonio Bonelli!" "Gran Dio! Maiemoiselle Paoli," says the man, and gallantly sinks upon his knee and kisses devotedly the fair hand the girl extends to him. After a moment he continues most emphati cally: "It was with sorrow that Cor sica heard that you had forgotten the oath of the vendetta in the arms of the English officer who killed your brother." 1 hat was not so," cries Marina. "The English officer who shot Antonio fell under the Egyptian guns by the hand.of God. The man I love is free of any blood stain." "Ah. the murderer of your brother fell by the hand of God. It is well. And this cavalier, is he your hus band?" "Oh, no he is' an American against whom foul wrong has been done by Saliceti," and introducing Barnes she says: "Tell this great bandit your story and he will give you justice. He has done so often in Bocognano." Briefly the American relates the kid naping of his wife, and listening to this, the Corsipan says: "No outrage against woman was evfer perpetrated in Bocognano without my avenging her, and this crime against a strange lady—ah, the hospitality of the island forbids it. Descend with me to the village, Americano, who has done such a great service in the slaying of these miscreants, who have dishonored our noble calling, and we, the Bellacoscia, will give your bride back to you and right your wrong." "Dio mio," cries Marina excitedly. "Now that our glorious bandits love you, Burton, your wrongs will be righted!" CHAPTER XIV. Before a Corsican Election. Escorted by the mountaineers, two stalwart young men carrying Made moiselle Paoli down the dizzy path, they skirt the dread precipices of Del Oro and passing the vinelands and the clearings, come into the main road leading from Corte, then descending the hill are in the chestnut groves of Bocognano. Then their leader turns to Marina and says: "Have no fear, Signora your English sister shall be returned to this gentleman, but—" he lays his hand on Barnes' shoulder—"use not the weapons I see at your belt. Thy quarrel shall be my quarrel. No for eigner shall ever be compelled to pro tect a woman while I, Antonio Bonelli, dominate Bocognano." "Were it not meeting night, every thing would be silent save the dogs and pigs," chuckles Tomasso. "Now they'll have light enough to see I am alive." "Cospetto, they are making a fete for you, Monaldi," laughs one of the young men, for lanterns are dangling from the overhanging boughs of the main street of the little village some of the houses are illuminated, arid round the communal building and the wine shops are gathered many men. The little party tramp through the lantern-lighted streets, and coming to the door of the municipal building, the loungers who are smoking their pipes make way for them, doffing their hats and saying with great reverence: "The Bellacoscia!" Near the entrance are two illumi nated placards, one reading: "Vote for Saliceti, who upholds old Corsica!" The other: "Cast your ballots for Ber nardo, the man who kills!" Surrounded by the young men, To masso in the dim light is not noticed, and Marina has drawn her mandile 1 close about her face. The party enter the low hall of the municipal, which is lighted by lamps and decorated by myrtles and cycla men flowers. It. is well filled by a crowd of farmers, peasants, wool 1 growers and shepherds.
