The Wrecked
Motorcar
A Night of Adventure on
the Honeyspot Road.
By HOBART A. FELTON
Abner Hurton had quarreled with
.lean I'rindle, and I had sided with hbim
and had this fallen out of the graces
of Hlenrietta l'rinille. Jean's beautiful
cousin. who wore muy ring on her en
wiag ment linger. The 41uarrel was such

Abnlir and I entered his big motor
car and sped over the Long Island
roads to Montauk Point. It was late
when we returned and quite dark by
the time we were halfway home.
The night closed in dark and foggy,
with a spatter of rain now and then.
but the road was familiar, and we
were acquainted with most of the
landmarks. Neither of us had much
to say, but Abner drove the car reck
lessly and broke records.
We tore up a long incline to the sum
mit of what I knew to be Skinner's
hill. The road on either side was
bordered with thinly scattered young
oak trees that thrived in the sandy
soil. It was a bad hill, for it deseend

limit. We were nearing the foot of the

lights emerged from the night. My
companion fumbled with the levers,
muttering softly at his own impru
dence. Onco more our car swerved
sharply to the right and then plunged
into thick darkness.
We jarred over a spongy' carpet of
last year's leaves, while low hanging
branches slapped our faces. We
bounced over a crumbling obstruction,
hung on the verge of space for an In
stant and then dropped Into abysmal
blackness.
I awoke to a strong odor of gasoline
and my friend's voice, holding a qua
vering undernote of anxiety.
"Wake up. Billy! You're all right!
You can't be hurt, old fellow! Here;

of a metal cap and a tinkling clink us
the silver chain dropped. and the capý
struck the 11ask. Then AMber's grop
ing fingers caught me firmly and as
sisted me to rise.
Accustomed to the darkness. mny
eyes now made out the dim outline of
Burton's form. "Hurt. old mhan'?" I
asked.
"Not a scratch. Landed squarely in
the softest. ooziest little puddle you
ever saw. Cot a match?"
I found ny matchbox. Th feeble

of our entnctrophe-a great hollow

young oak forest. The flare died out

ing car and darkness once more.
Another match. Burton's pale face
absurdly plastered with mud, the flick
er of light on little pools of water
among the treed and beside us the
faint trail of an abandoned wood road.
Abner flungf away th'e dying match.

"tGo 'lhead," I said, and so we left
the scene of disaster. The wood road
was softly carpeted with dead leaves
and cunningly laced with wild black
berry and cat brier, for nothing else
could scratch and tear and devastate
as did the vines that hedged our path.
A thick fog rolled in from the sound
and clung moistly to us. It was a re
lief, as it seemed to lighten the dark
ness of the starless, moon forsaken
night.
I plodded along behind Alner Bur
ton's bulky form, which moved like a
fiat shadow- in the fog.
For a long time we folloxud the old
wood loall, mostly in silelnre, but 10101

cident for which Abler's savage frame
of mind was alone respon'Iible. Sorely
tempted was I as I stumbled amo11
the briers to remind him of his respon
sibility for our disagreeable tramp in
the drizzling rain.
So we proceeded on our tramp--It
may have been an hour, but It seemed
much longer-along the old wood road,
which seemed to grow worse as we pro
ceeded. Once we got off the track and
wandered for a time in the brush be
fore we again got on the road. Had as

"Where there's a hedge there's a

I followed, pawing salos: the wet
stickiness of the hedge until we turn
ed Into a narrow opening and trod on
a graveled path that seemed to wind
sinuously around shadowy clumups of
boxwood miul tall shrubs pungent
smelling and dripping with moisture.
All at once. without even a warning
grumble, there came a heavy clap of
thunder and a bright flash of lightning
that revealed a large, old fashioned
brick house.
The dimensions of the structure were
lost in the blurring fog, but now we
could see that It loomed above us
gloomy and forbidding, with ditrk ob
longs indicating closed shutters. We
were chilled by the silence of the place.
There was no bark of watchful dog,
stir of restless cattle or midnight gos
sip of henroost. All was quiet-dead
ly still.
In the intermittent flare of lightning
we mounted a short flight of stone
steps to a broad, covered veranda.
Something white was squarely outlined
against the blackness of the door.. Ab
ner sacrificed a precious match, aid
we peered at it:
Apply to Jonadab Little,

"Well, of all the luck!" growled Ab
oer Impatiently.
"We can't sit out in this drizzling
rain." I objected. "Let's get inside the
house and keel) dry anyway."
"Not a had idea of yours. I don't
suppose it's occupied." he consented
and led the way on an investigation of
the French windows that opened on
the veranda when they did open. for.
of course, they were now securely
locked.
We had circled the house twice and
were debating the prudence of break
ing in when there caloe a startlinix
shriek from within. It wai a wild
weird cry that seemted to echo th rough
untenanted halls and spent itself in
distant murnmuriigs that at last died
away into silence.
"We must get inside anyway," de
cided Abner. "There is a woman in
trouble."

"Motorists on the HIoneyspot road?"
asked the voice derisively.
"We lost the main road, and our car

heard cries here and thought some one
was in trouble."
"Our troubles will be over If you will

other female voice.
"Then we crn be of no service to

fro ini the darkness, for Abner had
used his last watch, and we had no
guide in the velvet blackness of the
night. At last we subsided on to ad
jacent sofas in a room that proved to
be the library, and there we rested
until dawn. struggled through the thick
damask curtains. At Intervals through
the night we had heard the repetition
of those weird cries from the second
story, but we did not dare face another
interview with the Indignant ladies.
We rose to our feet, lame and stiff
and sore, to make our exit from the
lonely house that seemed to possess
some baffling mystery. As we fum.
