"Oh, yes, I can. I'll call for n volun teer from below. You show them your spurs nnd eavo your skin." "Oh, I'll stay, curse you, I'll stay!" "And I'll have my volunteer, wheth er you stay or not" - Tho pair had scarcely parted when the trapdoor opened slowly and stayed open for tho llist time. Tho voice of Stlngareo camo rich and crisp from behind the counter. "Your old woman has got awny to tho police barracks nnd the place is surrounded. One of you lias got to como up and help, and help fair, or get n bullet in his heart. 1 give yon ono minute to choose your man." But in ono second tlio man had chosen himself. Without a word, or n glance nt any of his companions, but with a faco burning with extraordi nary fires, Fergus Currlck sprang for the clean edge of tho trapdoor, caught it first with one hand nnd then with both, drew himself up like tho gym nast he had been at his Scottish school and found himself prone uihhi lloor nnd trapdoor ns the latter closed un der him on the release of the lexer which Stlngareo understood so well. A yell of execration followed him Into the upper nlr. And Stingaree was across tho counter before Ml new ally had picked himself up. "That's because IhLs was expected of nie," said I'ergm grimly, to explain the cashier's reiterated uiiallicinas. "I wns the writer of the registered letter that's led to all this. So now I'm g.i lug the whole hog." "You mean that? No nonsense'" "Yon shall see." "I should shoot you like u native cat." "You couldn't do me a better turn." "ltightl Swear on your knees that you won't use It against me or my mate and I'll trust you with this re volver. Ton may fire as high as you please, but they must think we're three Instead of two." Fergus took the with in llcrco ear nest upon his knees, 'was handed the weapon belonging to the bank nnd posted In his own bedroom window nt the rear of the building. Cdrrlck saw heads ami bhouldcrs hunched to aim over stable doors as ho obeyed his orders and kept his outli. Ills high Are drew n deadlier upon himself; n stream of lead whistled Into the room past his car. Fergus sighed relief as ho sought Stlngareo nnd found him with n com ical face before the open safe. "House full of paltry paper!" said he. "I suppose It'a tho old sportsman's cus torn to get rid of most of his heavy metal before closing on Saturdays?" Fergus said it was. He had him self stowed many n strong box aboard unsuspected barges for Echucn. "Well, now's our tlnio to leave you," continued Stingaree. "If I'm not mis taken their flight is simply for tho moment, and In two or three more they'll bo back to butter in the bank shutters. I wonder what they think wo'to done with our horses? I'll bet they've looked everywhere but In the lorder next the kitchen door not that we ever let them get so close. Hut my mato's in there now, mounted and waiting, and I shall havo to Icavo you, But 1 was coming with you!" cried Fergus, aghast RHn.r.,. .in .iflnirtMi on it ' cord. "I'm afraid U must trouble you to step into tho safe Instead," said he, smiling. "Mini. 1 nieun It! You think I don't. Tvo fought on your side of my own free will. How can I live that down? It's tho only sldo for mo for tho rest or time." ' "I bellevo you do mean it" I "You shall shoot mo if I don't" "I most certainly should. Hut my ' taato Howie has liU obvious lluiltu Hons. I've long wanted n drop of now Mood. Barmaid's thoroughbred and strong us an elephant. We're neither of us heuvywetghts. By the powers, Til trust you, aud you shall ride be hludl" Now, Barmaid was tho milk white maro thut was only less notorious thuu her luwless rider. It was uolaed In travelers' huts and around cumpflros that she would do more nt her master's word than had been known of borsa outside a circus. It wus tho ono touch that Stlngareo bad borrowed from a more Napoleonic but incomparably coarker and crueller knight of the busb. In all other resists the up to dnto desperado wait unique.

Stlngareo slid tnmcly to tho ground. "Dcn't you daro to get through those wires! Strap it from this side with your belt nnd strap it quick!' And tho bushranger obeyed with the same sensible docility, but with his back turned so that Fergus could not soo Ills face, and it was light'enough to sec faces now, yet Itnruinid refus ed the visible wires, ns she had not refused them nil that night of Indigo starlight. "Coax her. man!" cried Fergus, In tho saddle now, nnd urging the mnre with his heels. So Stlngaroe whispered In tho niure's cur, and with that tlio strapped wires ilew under his captor's nose, as the rider took tho fence, but not the horse. At n single syllable the milk white, mnre had gone on ber knee, like de vout lady in holy fane, and ns she rose her last rider lay senseless at her mas ter's feet: but whether from his fall or Hi Throat and chin Topped a Fene8 p0it Hj, VrUts Were Wired, from u blow dealt him In the act of fulling, tho unhappy Fergus never knew.

Hugo Howie had muttered llttlo enough for htm, but to that little Stln gareo put nn Instuiitiiuoous stop. ' "Ho's a dog, to bu shot like u dog, but too good a dog for you to black guard I" cried lie. "Any message, young fellow?" "Not through you." "So lonff, thon!'' "Shoot owiry!" The hammer fell, tho cartridge crack ed, and from tho lifted muzzle a tiny cloud flowed Ilka it bubble from a pipe. Tho post quivered under Carrlck'a chin, fore bis eyes. But thnt was nil. "I wns going to glvo you six of them. Uut you're a brnver man than I thought."
