CHAPTER XXIV. Continued.
After partaking of some coffee, ba
con and bread they stretched them
selves out and fell asleep. The earliest
sign of day found them awake and
much refreshed. The first thing Mike

I'm not sure about It."
"What's the did saying about dream

"It's a sign the dream comes true,"
answered Mike; "but I don't want
this one to come, true. That dog was
a big dlvll, and the man looked all In
a hump. I don't remember what kind
of a faco ho had, but It must 'a' been
a dandy to wako me 'up."
After breakfast thoy started out on
a tour of Investigation, Jerry going
down the stream In tho boat and Mike
picking his way up along the bank. On
hla return to the camp Jerry kept on
tho other side of tho river. Ho was
nearlng tho camp when he noticed an
opening In the underbrush. He
grounded tho skiff and went up to It.
Ho was surprised to And fresh foot
prints In the soggy soil. Going Into
tho bushes ho found a well-worn path.
Ho did not venture far, but hastened
back to the camp, which Mlko had
Tcached a few minutes before. His
xclted manner brought Mike to im

Mlko simply stared.
"You did see a man and a dog. I'll
take my life on It."
"How do you know, Tommy?"
"Whero was It the man dlsap
"Right over there," answered Mike,
-pointing In the direction of the open

"Then, that's whero you saw a real
man and a real dog go. I found an

tho path were fresh prints of a man's

nlmost reached tho base of tho cliff
when the faint barking of a dog
reached the lr ears.
"Did you hoar It, Tommy?" asked
"It was that same dream dog of
"Then, by golly, It wasn't n dream
after all, was It? It sounds Just like
It sounded last night." Tho barking
of tho dog sounded nearer and nearer,
nnd tho two secluded thomsolvcs.
"It's lucky wo hid tho boat In tho
grass," said Jerry.
"Oh, an Athlono man thinks of a
thing or two," whispered Mlko.
Presently they saw a big dog run up
tho bank, barking as though In piny,
and then plunged Into tho water. As
It swam back to the bank an old man,
bent with age, moving slowly, ap-
pearcd In view.
"That's tho old dlvll," whispered
Mike, "and now I can get a look at his
face. By golly, ho must bo 1,000
years old. and I'll bet he don't weigh
16 pounds. Did you ever seo such a
skinny old cuss?"
A few minutes later tho old man
reached n spot within 20 feet of where
the boat was hidden, and snt down la
boriously. In faint, trembling Span
lih he talked (o tho dog.
"Yes. you shall have food." said
he, his arms around the dripping dog's
neckr, "and you shall havo sport. Ilut
what nro you going to do when old
Jose Is gone, faithful brother? Who
will play with you then? Who will
get you fish and game? Who will help
you " Hero he brought his hands to
his eyes and shook with sobs. With
great labor ho got to his feet and
started to retrace his steps. Jerry and
Mike picked their way after him, go
ing through dense, underbrush, and,
to their surprise, they soon reached a
pathway. They no longer heard the
barking of tho dog.
"Let us follow this path," sug
gested Jerry, and a moment later he
was leading Mike through tho brush
alongside the crooked pathway. After
half an hour they came to an open
space, and the path was lost.
"Now, where do you suppose tho old
dlvll wlnt?" said Mike, scratching his
head. "There's nothln' afore us now
but the mountains, and we don't know
which way to go."
They decided to lie In wait another
time for the old man and to station
themselves near the opening In tho
underbrush. When they returned to
the camp they tried to figure out who
the man could be and what he was do

Early In tho morning of tho fourth
day Jerry and Mike, armed with re

yards when they came to two paths.

"This Is a new one," said Mike, "and
the chances aro ho didn't follow tho

They followed tho now-found way
for several hundred yards, finally
coming to another open spot. Again
the path was lost.
"N'ow. what do you think o' that?"
said Mike, clearly nonplused. "If he
had gone to the, mountains he'd 'a' left
somo prints lri tho sand, but thero
ain't a sign of a foot."
"Tho chances are, Mlko," said Jerry,
"that he turned off the path some
where back In the bushes. Let's go
back that way and keep our eyes open
They retraced their steps nbout 100
feet when Jerry suddenly stopped and
clutched Mlko's orm.
"Hear?" ho whispered.
"It's ,t groan," answered Mlko. "It's

"Let's find out," said Jerry, and It
must be confessed that his fingers
were very nervous when ho gripped
his revolver tighter. Thoy picked
their way through tho bushes, the
moaning of the man becoming loudor
and more distinct. I'resontly thoy
emerged to find themselves within 20
feet of a thatched-roofed adobe.
"Hello, there!" Jerry sang out.
The only answer was a moan.
"White thero? What's tho matter?"
cried out Mike.
Again a main for an answer. a
"Something's tho matter with him,"
said Jerry, and ho went up to the
door of the adobe. Stretched out on
the ground lay the old man, his face
bearing expressions of great pain and
suffering, llesldu him lay tho dog-
"Dying dying," whispered tho old
man. "I havo sent my dog first: I
could not bear to think of his bolng
"Have you no modlclno?" aikud
The old man merely shook his head.
"We'll set you somo whisky." said
Jerry, nnd a few minutes later Mlko
waa on his way back to tho camp.
"You aro going to help mo?" fcobly
asked tho otd man.
"We'll do all wo can for you," an
A smllo of appreciation lighted the
otd man's wrinkled face, nnd ho trlod
to lift a hand.
"You are good." ho wont on; "you
aro the first who has ever been good
to poor old Jose." Ho looked Jerry
full In tho fnco for n nlnuto before
ho added: "Why should you not know
what I know? You are going to holp
mo and I can help you." His voice
fell to n very wenk whisper and Jerry
was unnblo to distinguish tho words
that ho tried to speak. He thought
ho was dying.
When Mlko returned with whisky
and soma qutnlno and a small box of
food the old man secmod to regain
part of his feoblo strength, and ho
again could speak to bo understood.
Tho whisky revived him very notice
ably and ho ato freely of tho bread and
"Somo time, some time." bogsn the
old man, "I am going to tell you, but
not now, not now," He seemed to bo
much agitated when ho went on: "Go
now, and como to-morrow; come and
bury my faithful brother. Then I shall
toll you. Go, go, now!"
The. Red-Topped Mountain.
"It's dead certain the old codger's
got somethln' Important to tell," said
Mlko that night at tho camp, as ho and
Jerry lay on the ground and smoked
their pipes. "He fluttered all to
pieces .when ho told us to go. I
thought he was goln' to got up and
chase us away.' Good thing that dog
"It's a cinch," said Jerry, "that ho
cither has a big secret on his mind
or Is crazy. Anybody that would live
down hero must have space to rent In
his noddle. I suppose we'll have to
bury that dog."
Shortly after daybreak thoy arrived
nt the old adobo and found tho aged
man mumbling to himself, as though
slightly delirious, Jerry gave him
somo whisky and presently his eyes
spoke recognition. It was ovldent that
he was much weaker than when they
left him the day before.
"We havo como at your bidding."
said Jerry, "and wo shall glvo your
dog a burial."
"I know you would care for my
faithful brother." whispered tho aged
man with great effort. "The end Is
near neat- near, and I am going to
tell you all all that It has taken mo
moro than CO years to find out find
out at tho last moment," Jerry's car
was close to his mouth now, for the
voice was very low. "Thero Is no open
trail," the old man went on, "and you
must seek, seek, seek as I havo sought
Thero aro holes, many of them, but
they all lead away from It, and-
Here his eyelids drooped and tho
shadow of death fell upon his drawn
features. Jerry gently shook him and
touched tho whisky bottle to his Hps
again. "I had planned to go myself,
but It Is too late too late," he went
on with greater effort. "Go to OJIto,
from whoso church steps you will sco

"Mike," began Jerry In low tonps.
"ho has given us a lead to tho lost
San Dlmas gold mine! Ho has told
its almost all that It took him moro

ho went on, looking into tho dead
man's face. "Sixty years of searching,
with success coming too late. That's
a part of life, I guess, Mlko.'
"And see," said Mlko, pointing to a
corner of tho llltlo room, "ho had
everything packed ready to go thoro.
Ho examined tho fow effects of tho old
man nnd discovered a pick and shovel

was at the oars, "hut wo may bo go

Jerry's mind, hut It could not dispel
the gloom that darkened his hope of
ever finding Marina Doatos,

For a solid week they searched for
No. 14," but failed to find a trace
of It, Ono going one way and tho
pthcr another, they explored with
reasonablo thoroughness every place
within a radius of a mile that could bo
reached. One morning Jerry found an
opening In the mountain, nnd his
hopes ran high, for It appeared to havo
boon artificially mado. Ho explored It
as far as he could go, at times being
compelled to crawl on hands and
knees. Tho light of his lantern was
brought to play on every ledge, his
eyes forever on tho lookout for "14,
Mike, big nbout tho girth, also struck
what ho regarded as a posslblo lend
one afternoon, at a place within a fow
yards of the camp. Ho tried to
squeeze his way under a hanging rock
a few feet from tho opening, but ho
camo lodged so that ho could not movu
ono way or the other. Fortunately for
him, his volco was strong enough to
bo heard by Jorry, who at tho mo
ment hnppcnod to bo nt tho camp, and
his rcscilo was effected through tho ef

On tho night of tho seventh day at

The thought of being alone In that
wilderness, particularly at night,
caused Jerry to shudder, and moro
than once that day, while no-continued
hla exploring, he forced himself to
sing and whistle to keep down his
gloom. That night, although he was
thoroughly tired, ho slept but little.
All that day ho explored, but with
no success. Ho had calculated that
Mike would be back that night, but
ha was doomed to disappointment and
to another night of misery. Ho re
mained nt the camp until noon, and
was beginning to worry over tho non
appearance of his companion. Ho left
a note on a box and resumed his hunt
for the hidden treasure. He went far
up the mountain sldo and became so
Interested In his work that he did not
start back to tho camp until after
When ho emorRod from a denso
clump of trees Into an open space
about 100 feet from the camp ho was
startled Into a odd shiver by seeing a
bright light through tho trees before
him. For a moment his legs seemed
to be paralyzed and hi mind blank.
"It must be Mlko giving ino somo
signal," ho finally decided, nnd ho
cautiously picked his way towards the
camp. When ho was within 40 feot
of It, well hidden from view In the
tangled underbrush, his heart almost
censed beating and his eyes almost
popped from his head. Tho tent and
all tho provisions were In llamo.
around which a dozen or moro In
dlnns, clad only as savages are clad,
were on their hands nnd knees, their
faces to tho ground as though In wor
ship. "Tho Yaquls!" flashed through his
mind, and ho sank to tho ground.
An Instnnt later a wild, concerted
whooping pierced his cars and Chilled
him to tho marrow. Tho Indians
danced nround tho fire, frantically
waving guns and acting moro llko mad
men with each succeeding minute.
Jerry thought of his rcvolvor, but If he.
had been compelled to bring It Into
action it Is doubtful 1? ho would have
possessed the strength to handlo It.
Tho marauders remained nt tha camp
until tho flames died down, nnd then,
with horrible yelling, they ran down
tho mountain sldo.
Jorry, his brnln afire, did not could
not move for minutes, After bis wits
had been restored sufficiently to per
mit of reasonably rational thinking his
first Impulse was to llco to tho trail
and pick his way back towards OJIto,
hoping to meet Mlko on tho way. He
picked his way down to tho trail, hut
had not gono far whou his strength
left hlra and ho sank to tho ground
Not far from the red stono In tho path
way ho fell asleep, and while he slept
a thunder abowor camo up and tho
rain fell In torrents. Ho thought uoth
Ing of shelter, but lay there, n target
for tho elements.
When tho first faint tint of morning
came ho was almost mad for water.
Fever was burning hi in up, and ho
wns so, weak that ho scarcely could
keep his feet. Hut ho worked his way
back to tlio brooklet, his mind awhlrl.
After he had drunk u great quantity
of water he staggered ulmlessly back
towurds tho trull.
Knrly in the evening Mlko O'Connor
led his well ludon burro up tho mnun
tnlu side towards the camp. He was
singing a lively Irish song, occasion
ally breaking the refrain with shouts
to Jer.ry. Tho terror tliut selzod him
