Billy rolled over on his stom ach, rammed Ills head into the pillow and completely relaxed his .body, but, althought hin breath ing soon became deceptively reg ular, he was far from being asleep. He was thinking as pur posefully as ever he had In his life. He had to escape. To per-' mit his enemies to do this thing, was Intolerable. There was a way out. Every strait, no matter how close or awkward it may be, has its way out. He built many plans while he lay there. But there was a flaw In each and every one of them. Felix Craft returned about the! middle of the afternoon. | As the door opened and Craft entered, Billy sat up. "Have a nice time?" ho drawled. "Went through like clock work," replied Craft, slumping in to a chair beside tho table. "Lord A'mighty, I'm hungry," Craft said carelessly. "Got any more eggs and ham, Sam?"" "If you want anything to eat. you can cook it yourself," said Sam. When Felix Craft brought the eggs, he drew up at one side of the table and Billy at the other. The p latter of eggs was between them. Tip looked on from his seat near 'the fireplace. Sam lounged comfortably In his chair. Billy looked with a dissatisfied air upon the eggs. "Ain't there any bread, Felix? A li'l butter on the bread wouldn't hurt neither." So Felix made another trip to the kitchen'.

"Vou going to refuae me too, Tip, old cltiien?" "No," aald Tip with a weary air, "I suppose not'" He arose and betook himself to the kitchen. Returning with a large old-fashioned tin pepper pot he thumped H down upoa the ta ble In front of the captive "There y're. Now, ?top your squalling." "Thank you, Tippy, I will. Yeah." Billy scraped up to the table as Tip turned away. "What'e the matter with tbla pepper hot, any way?" Tip turned to look. Billy pick ed up the pepper pot slowly and started hard at It. Fells Craft craned his- neck. ? "I don't see anything the mat ter with it," said Craft. "Don't you?* murmured Billy, his fingers .busy with the remova ble top. "Look here." x Sam Larder did not move, but both Tip and Craft oboyed. In fact, they obeyed ivlth such good will that the handful of pepper that Billy - Instantly swept Into their faces dusted up their nos trils as tfell as Into their eyes. In throwing the pepper Billy had employed his left hand. This, left hand had not completed the motion before Billy was reaching for the platter of eggs with h!a right hand. It was unfortunate for Sam| Larder ^hat he was a slow-going | gentleman. Tho platter struck him edgewise over the eye when his sisshooter had barely cleared tho holster. The sis-shooter thud ded to Urn floor. Sam and his chair went over backward and lay together In a tangle amid the fragments of broken platter and the remains of several eggs. He was unconscious.
