Evening came, then night, and still
the party was Jerked along at the tall
of the train without a hint as to Its
destination. About midnight those
; who were not doting noted that they
bad stopped at an obscure pine-woods
Junction, and that when the train got
under way once more their own car
did not move. The ruse was now ap
parent; owing to the lateness of the
hour, it was doubtful If anyone In the
forward coaches was aware that the
. train was lighter by one car.
There was a brief delay ; then a. lo
comotive crept out from a siding,
coupled up to the standing car, and
drew It off upon another track. Soon
the "excursion party" was being rushed
swiftly toward the coast, some twenty
miles away.
Major Ramos came down the aisle,
laughing, and spoke to his American
proteges. . , ' '
"Well, what do you think of that, eh?
Imagine the feelings of those good
deputy marshals when they wake up.
I bet they'll rub their eyes."
Miss Evans bounded excitedly In her
seat; she clapped her hands.
"You must have friends In high
places," O'Reilly grinned, and the Cu
' ban agreed;
"Yes, I purposely drew attention to
us In Charleston, while our ship was
loading. She's ready and waiting for
us now; and by daylight we ought to
be safely out to sea. Meanwhile the
, Dauntless has weighed anchor and Is
steaming north, followed, I hope, by
all the revenue cutters hereabouts"
It was the darkest time of the night
when, the special train came to a stop
' at. a bridge spanning one of the deep
Southern rivers. In the stream bekrw,

dimly outlined in the gloom, lay the
Fair Play, a small tramp steamer; her
crew were up and awake. The new ar
rivals were hurried aboard, and within
a half-hour she was feeling her way
Ma ward.
With daylight, caution gave way to
haste, and the rusty little tramp be
gan to drive forward for all she was
worth. She cleared the three-mile
Umlt safely and then turned south. Not
a craft was In sight ; not a smudge of
smoke discolored the skyline.
It had been trying night for the
filibusters, and when the low coastline
was dropped astern they began . to
think of sleep. Breakfast of a sort
was served on deck, after whlcll those

favored ones who had berths sought
them, while their less fortunate-companions
stretched out wherever they
could find a place.
Johnnie O'Reilly was. elated. Al
ready he could see the hills of Cuba
dozing behind their purple veils; In
fancy he felt the fierce white heat from
close-walled streets, and scented the
odors of "mangly" swamps. He heard
the ceaseless sighing of the royal
palms. How he had hungered for It
all; how he had raged at his delays!
. It had seemed so small a matter to
return ; It had seemed so easy to seek
out Rosa and to save herr Yet the
days had grown Into weeks ; the weeks
had aged Into mouths. Well, he had
done his best; he had never rested
from the moment rc4 -Rosa's first ap
peal. Her enemies had foiled him
once, but there, would be, no turning
back this time rather a 'firing squad
or a dungeon In Cabanas than that

or tne Fair Play to identify that
blacker darkness on. the horizon ahead
of them as land. Major Ramos was on
the bridge with the.captain'' ,3Cwo men
were taking soundings In' a blind
search for that steep wall which forms
the side of the old Bahama channel.
When the lead finally gave them warn
ing, the Fair Play lost her headway
and came to a stop, rolling lazily..
Major Ramos spoke In a low. tone
from the darkness above, calling for a
volunteer boat's crew to reconnolter
and to look for ah opening through, the
reef. Before the words .were, out of
his mouth O'Reilly had offered htmi:
self. - .
Ten minutes later fie found' himself
at the steering oar of, one of the' ship's
lifeboats, heading shoreward. There
was a long night's work ahead ; time
passed, and so O'Reilly altered i. his
course and cruised along bntstd&'the
white water, urging his crew- to lustier
strokes. ;' -
A mile two,, miles It seemed like
ten to the taut barsnjen,' and theft a
black hiatus of still water 'showed in
phosphorescent foam. O'ReJllyY ex
plored It briefly; then he turned back
toward the ship. Soon he and his crew
were aboard and the ship was groping
her way toward the break in the reef.
Meanwhile, her -deck became a scene
of feverish activity ; out from her hold
came cases of ammunition and medical
supplies; the fleldplece on the bow was
hurriedly dismounted ; the small boats,
of which there was an extra number,
were swung out, with the result that
when the Fair Play had maneuvered
as close as she dared everything was
in readiness. "
O'Reilly took the first load through,
and discharged It upon a sandy beach.
Every man tumbled - overboard and
waded ashore with a packing case'; he
dropped this In. the' sand above' high
tide mark, and then, ran back for an
other. It was swift, hot work. From
the darkness on each side came the
sounds of other boat crews similarly
engaged.
Daylight was coming when the last
boat cast off and the Fair Play, with
a hoarse, triumphant blast of her
whistle, faded Intq the north, her part
In the expedition at an end.
Dawn showed the voyagers that they
were Indeed fortunate, for they were
upon the mainland of Cuba, and as far
as they -could see, both east and west,
the reef was unbroken. Men were
lolling about, exhausted, but Major Ra
mos allowed them no time for rest ; he
roused them, and kept them on the go
until the priceless supplies had been
collected within the shelter of the
brash. Then he broke open certain
packages and distributed arms among
his followers.

O'Reilly accepted , eagerly J then

capable enough as she stood there In
her short walking suit and stout boots,
. Branch alpne declined the Invitation,
vowing that he was too weak to budge.
If there "was the faintest prospect of
riding to the interior he Infinitely pre
ferred, to. await the opportunity,' he
said,-even at the risk of an attack by
Spanish soldiers In the meantime. .
It took O'Reilly but a short time to
collect the few articles necessary for'
the trip; indeed, his bundle was so
small that Norlne was dismayed.
"Can't I take any clothes?" she In
quired In a panic. "I can't live with
out a change."
"It Is something you'll have to
learn," he told her. "An lnsurrecto
with two shirts Is wealthy. Some of
them haven't any."
"Isn't it likely to rain on us?"
"It's almost sure to."
Miss Evans pondered this prospect;
then she laughed. "It must feel fun
ny," she said. - ' '
There were three other members of
the traveling party, men who knew
something of the country round about;
they 'vere good fighters, doubtless, but
in spit j of their shiny new weapons
they esembled soldiers even less than
did their major. All were dressed as
they had been when they r left New
York; one even wore a derby hat and
pointed patent-leather shoes.- Never
theless Norlne Evans thought the little
cavalcade presented quite a martial
appearance as .it filed away into the
Jungle.
The first few miles were trying, for
the coast was swampy and' thickly
grown 'up- to underbrush; but In time
the Jungle gave placer to higher timber
and to open savannas deep In guinea
grass. Soon after noon the travelers
came to a farm, the owner of which
was known to one of the guides, and
here a stop was made in order to se
cure horses and food.
Johnnie, who was badly fagged from
Lth vprevtou8 night's 'work, found : a
snady-.-spot' and stretched himself out
"far a nap. : . ... t
The fehqde was. grateful; O'Reilly
enjoyed his sleep. . -
The party had penetrated to the foot
hills of the Sierra de Cubitus, and as
they ascended, the scenery changed,

for the state buildings were- huts bf
.bark and leaves; the 'army was uni
formed In rags. Cook 'fires smoldered
in the open glades; cavalry horses
grazed in the grassy streets, and wood
smoke drifted over them. '
The second evening brought O'Reilly
and Miss Evans safely through, and tit
news of the expedition's success fa
pack train was made, ready to go to
Its assistance. Norlne's letter from the
New- York Junta was read, and the
young woman was warmly welcomed.
One of the better huts was vacated for
her use, and the ofllcers of the pro
visional government called to pay their
respects.
There were other Americans in Cu
bltas, a's'O'Rellly soon discovered. Dur
ing his first inspection of the village
he heard himself hailed In his own lan
guage, and a young man In dirty
white trousers and Jacket etrode
toward blm. -
"Welcome to our city I" the stranger
cried. "I'm Judson, captain of artil
lery, departments del Orlente ; and
you're the fellow who came with the
quinine lady, aren't you?"
O'Reilly acknowledged his Identity,
and Judson grinned. "Have you met
the old man," he Inquired "General
Gomez?"
"No ; I'd like to meet him."
"Come along, then; 111 introduce
you. ,
Gen. Maximo Gomez, father of pa
triots, bulwark of the Cuban cause,
was seated in a hammock, reading
some letters; O'Reilly recognized him
Instantly from the many pictures .he
had seen. He looked up at JudsoVs
salute and then turned a pair of bril
liant eyes, as hard as glass, upon
O'Reilly. His was an Irascible, brood
ing face; it had In It something of the
stefnness,Xhe exalted detachment, of
the eagle, and O'Retily gained a-hjnt of
the personality -'behind-it -Maximo
LGomez was counted one of the world's
ablest guerrilla .leadejft.;, ajpd. indeed
It had "required the quenchless enthu
siasm of a real military genius to fuse
into a homogeneous fighting force the

This, however, was precisely .Khat the
old Porto Rican had done, addTn 'doing
It Ire' had won the admiration of mili
tary students.
. With- a ' bjuntness. not unkind he
asked O'Reilly what had -brought him
to' Cuba. " " :
When O'Reilly explained tfte reason
for his presence the old fighter nod
ded. .
"So? You wish to go west, eh?"
"Yes, sir. " I want to find Colonel
Lopez."
"Lopez? .Miguel Lopez?" the gen
eral inquired quickly. "Well, you won't
have to look far for- him." General
Gomez' leathery countenance lightened
Into a smile. "He happens to lie right
here In Cubltas." CalllngUudson to
him, he said : "Amlgo, take Mr. O'Reilly
to Colonel Lopez; yon will find him
somewhere about. I am sorry we are
not- to have this young fellow for a
soldier ; he looks like a real man and
quite equal to five qulntos, eh?" .
It was the habit of the .Cubans to
refer to . their enemies as qulntoB
the fifth part of a man ! With a wave
of his hand Gomez returned to his
reading.
Col. Miguel Lopez, a handsome, ani
mated fellow, took O'Reilly's hand in
a hearty clasp when they were intro
duced ; but a moment later his Smile
gave way- to a frown and his brow
darkened. . ' " . . . i :

Then of course they went after him.
Meanwhile he, managed to destroy his

robbed him of. You know Cueto?"
"Yes.",.. " . ' :- . ;
."Well, Esteban put aq end to him

the two parties met I have never

the stories of that fight which came to
me are too preposterous for belief.
Still, Esteban and his men must have
fought like demons, for they killed
some incredible number. But they
were human they could not defeat a
regiment It seems that only one or
two ot them escaped."
"Esteban? Did he"
Colonel Lopez nodded ; then he said
gravely : "Cobo takes no prisoners. I
