There was n wild scurry, two or three shots were tired, and Ilozior found himself on (he ground gripping the throat of a bronwl man whom he had shoved backward with a thrust, for he had no time to swine his stake for h blow. He was aware of u pair of hlnrl: eyes that glared up at him horribly In the moonlight, of white teeth that shone under Ions mus-tnohlfi.-i of peculiarly warlike aspect, but lie felt the mnn was as putty In h's hnuds, and his (lnger.i related luelr presMiru. lie looked around. The tight was ended ainiost a soon ns It began, The soldiers, six In nil. were on their backs In the r iad way. Two of them wore dead. The Italian sailor had been shot through the body and was twisting In his last agony. The bloodshed was bad enough, but those shots were worse. They would set the Island In an uproar. The re ports would be heard In town, citadel and fort, and the troops would now be nn the qui vivo, iltlt De Sylva was n man of resource. "Strip the prisoners!" he cried "Take their arms and ammunition but bind them back to back wlththell belts." "I'.utt In there, me lads." vociferated L'oke, who had accounted for one ot the Brazilians with an ax. "Step live ly! Now we've got some uniforms nn' VUL's we can rush that eittydel easy." Ilozior was busy relieving his man 3f his coat. When the prone warrior realized that he was not to be killed he helped I he operation, but l'lillip was thinking more of Iris than of Joeds ..f derring-do. "Why tittenipt to capture the citadel U all?" he asked. "Now that we can make snlllcient display, is there any reason that we should not go straight for the launch?" '1 think it is a good suggestion," :are the calm answer, "provided, that is, the launch Is In the harbor." A bell began to toll in the convict settlement. Lights appeared In many louses scattered over the seaward dope. Ilozior, never for an Instant forgetting Iris, saw that Marcel still ren-.nined with hi leader. Under these new circumstances it certainly would jm a piece ot folly to send back until 'hey were sure of the launch. Happily the launch was there, moor fd alongside a small quay. From the nearest building it was necessary to toss a low wharf some fifty ynrds in width, and lJe Hylva's whispered com aiaods could not restrain the eager men when escape appeared no longer problematical, but assured. They Woke and ran. an almost fatal thing, is It happened, since the soldiers whom Philip had seen from the rock were still on board. Ono of them no ticed the inexplicable disorder among n body of men soma of whom resenj bled his own comrades, lie had heard the tiring and was discussing it with others when this strange thing hap pened. He challenged. San Henavldes nn wered, but his voice was shrill and anofflcer-llko. The engines were started. A man leaped to the wharf. Ho was In the let of casting a mooring ropo off a xed capstau when Up Kylva shot him between the shoulder blades. "On board, all of you!" shrieked the ex-president in a frenzy. "At 'em, boys!" gasped Colte, though scarce able to stagger another foot. The men needed no bidding. Sheets of flamo leaped from the vessel's deck ns the soldiers seized their rifles and tired point blank at these mysterious assailants who spoke In n foreign lan guage. But flame alone could not stop that desperate attack. Koine fell, hut the survivors sprang at the Brazlnnns like famished wolves on their prey. There wns no more shooting. .Men grappled and fell, somo Into the water, others on deck, or they sprawled oyer (he hatch and wrougtit In frantic strug gle In the narrow cabin.
