THE SPOKANE WOMAN THE LOST WORLD (Continued from Page 4.) said 1. “They live in the caves on the other side of the central lake.” “Our young friend here knows where they live, 1 gather that it is some dis tance.” “A good twenty miles,” said I. Summerlee gave a groan, “I, for one, could never get there. Surely I hear those brutes still howl ing upon our track. As he spoke, from the dark recesses of the woods we heard far away the jibbering cry of the ape-men. The In dians once more set up a feeble wail of fear, “We must move, and move quick!” said Lord John. “You help Summer lee, young fellah. These Indians will carry stores, Now, then, come along before they can see us.” In less than half-an-hour we had reached our brushwood retreat and concealed ourselves. All day we heard the excited calling of the ape-men in the direction of our old camp, but none of them came our way, and the tired fugitives, red and white, had a long, deep sleep. 1 was dozing myself in the evening when someone plucked my sleeve, and I found Challenger kneeling beside me, “You keep a diary of these events, and you expect eventually to publish it, Mr. Malone,” said he, with sol emnity, “l am only here as a DPress re porter,” I answered, “Exactly. You may have heard some rather fatuous remarks of Lord John Roxton's which seemed to imply that there was some—some resemblance—" “Yes, I heard them.” “I need not say that any publicity given to such an idea—any levity in your narrative of what occurred— would be exceedingly offensive to me.” “1 will keep well within the truth.” (To Be Continued.) Cruising the Mediterranean (Continued from Page 10.) s 0 returned to the Hotel d’Angleterre for dinner, still play:ng with the thought of acquiring a shawl. The train was to leave shortly after an early dinner and our time was lim ited. In the midst of the repast we decided to return to the alluring shop. We dashed out, and through the foot man, who spoke English, made a bar gain with the carriage driver to take us to the train by way of the shop and get us there on time. We trotted off down the street past the Cathedral and up the narrow streets now filled with soft, mysterious gshadows as the deep blue of twilight darkened into night. The shop was brightly lighted and the shawls were more wonderful in lamplight. But still we did not find just what we wanted. However, our disappointment did not detract from the thrill of the ride to the train. The driver urged his horses to speed and through the deserted crooked streets, past the yellow light of an occasional street lamp, we rode in a soft starlit silence, broken only by the click of the horses’ hoofs and the muffled jin- gle of the buckles of the harness. 1 did not care whether we made the train or not. 1 even hoped we would miss it. Too soon the lights and noise of the station brought us back with a start to the need for hurry. Past the guards with their big shiny leather hats, we rushed to our train for the evening's trip back to Cadiz. : WCESLEN SATURDAY £ : SATURDAY £ 3 AND ALL NEXT § 2 Don Marquis’ Great WEEK g = Stage Succe.ss Don’t & 2 Now a Delightful Miss & 2 Comedy Drama!
