ered the entrance of a tomb in the
floor of bis stable and at once pro
ceeded to worm his way down the
tunnel. This was the end of tiie man.
His wife, finding that he had not re
turned two hours or so later, went
dowu the newly found tunnel after
him. That was the end of her also.
In turn three other members of the
family went down Into the darkness,
and that was the end of them.
A n at ive otiicial was then called, and.
lighting his way with a caudle, pene
trated down the winding passage
The air was ko foul that he was soon
obliged to retreat, but he stated that
he was just able to see in the distance
ahead the bodies of the unfortunate
peasants, all of whom had been over
come by what he quaintly described
as "the evil lighting and bad climate."
Various attempts at the rescue of the
bodies having failed, we gave orders
that this tomb should be regarded as
their sepuh-her and that its mouth
should lie sealed up.
According to the natives there was
evidently a vast hoard of wealth
stored nt the bottom of this tomb, and

death at the hands of the demon in
