Abdl's fierce, glance seemed to over leap the billowed desert and became concentrated on the far hortson, where something glittered for an Instant end j then vanished. . "There Is a different route thst may prove to be safer," he said at last. "Lead the way, then. ordered Cam- i eron Impatiently. j j Obediently the Arab wheeled his . horse te the left, away from the route which tbey had chosen and which was ' the same taken by the thieving cara- j van whose camel track had momen tarily halted their Journey. ' As Cameron followed his guide he' i occasionally threw a glance over to I i the right, where one might reasonably i : expect to glimpse some trace of the I caravan which had passed only ten j minutes before. lie was hoping that j they would elude the thieving Arabs I who had plundered their provisions and tried to steal their horses. A quick j ; battle with automatic revolvers and a : repeating rifle had put the Arabs to flight. Rut they hovered near. One day's uninterrupted Journey would i bring him to the expedition camp on the site of ancient Gib. Urgent busi nese had prevented his Joining the par ty at the appointed place; conseqtent l.y he had to mnke this lonely trip across northern Tripoli with the un certain loyalty of an Arab dragoman as his sole dependence. Cameron decided to be on the look out for treachery from bis dragoman. "What Is that?" he asked suddenly. Abdl Inclined his ear respectfully. A faint yapping sound broke the stillness. "Jackals." declared Abdl, shrugging his shoulders. . Cameron knew that the Arab Med and felt that his suspicions were con firmed. Therefore be said nothing. He drank some strong coffee of his own preparation and ate a few tinned biscuits from his own saddlebags, lie decided not to sleep that night In an unguarded moment Abdl might mur der him with a shot from the silver mounted rifle he carried slung over his burnoose. Cameron propped Ills saddle agninst n sand hillock and. sitting down, lean ed his head against the leather bags. Ilia cartridge belt was buckled outside his coat and tn either hand he held ao automatic revolver. The three horses. Abdi's, his own and the pack horse, which carried his luggage, were grouped near at hand. Once again there came the distant I cry of the Jackals? Cameron believed otherwise. AImII turned hl head away and listened. "It Is a signal cry," thought Cam eron, who knew something of the wire less telegraphy ef the desert tribes. "I wonder if It relates to my affairs or are they en tiie trail of Italian scouts? Very likely they are on the scent of other game something big ger than I can offer with my meager equipment and silver watch." After awhUe he arose and stretched himself, offering a splendid target for Abdi's rifle, but the tall Arab did not even turn bis head. He wat staring out Into the fntltomless plooiu of the desert as If his falcon eyes woald pierce its mysteries. Cameron remained standing. He felt a vague uneasiness creeping over him. He thought Jie heard fotsteps padding to and fro in the soft sand among the hillocks There seemed to be a burden of whispering in the stlli air. but whenever he grew rigid and tense with listening there was noth Ing save the murmuring breeze troii blinc; the grains of sand. The hor-es stirred restlessly and one of ibeni whinnied. Cameron caught Ihe beginning of an answering whinny -it was neer ended. Something Stifled it Into silence "What was that, Abdi?" asked Cam I eron sharply. I The Arab turned. "That, effendl? i j Thy servant sneezed" A grim smile curved Cameron s lips. "Traitor," he muttered to iiluiielf as I te likened. After that a great silence fell upou the desert. The wind ceased blowlug. The horse drooped their heads and ; were quiet. Alidi stood a dark statue j throwing a gigantic shadow on the i sand ! Cameron's eyes allied with the wat hinjr and with a lunging for sleep to come to his burning eyelid i Suddenly a tiny spark appeared at the top of a nearby hillock It die apeared. I Inntantlv Abdl struck a fusee and .rette. As bis lean dark Daily Story race was exposed in the glow of the brief Uht Cameron saw a look of eagerness spread over tha grim fea- tures of his dragoman. "A signal," decided Cameron, won dering whether it would sot be wiser to bowl the traitor over with one shot now and if there was to be a battle let it begin at one and have it over with. There would be small chance of his 1 escaping aliva if the enemv should surround him as they would be likely to do. Even now they might be crouch ing behind the vary sand dune against which be was leaning. Almost anything was better than the strata of waiting for something te hap pen. He would glv them ten minutes more and then. He glanced at his watch and saw that it was two hours after midnight. He was Impatient at the Idea of hav ing his arrival at Gib delayed by an other day and he could not understand A bill's stnpidlty In prolonging the Jour. n7 except in tha light ef having be trayed bis master to tha bandit a Abdt smoked his cigarette peace fully and finally flung the burning end to the ground. Cameron watched for some answering signal but saw noth ing. "Perhaps it la the signal to attach: now," he muttered and at that instant Abdl turned swiftly and yelled at him. "Baalek!" (I.ookont!) was his cry, and it was flung aa a warning to Cam eron. Cameron dropped into the shadow of h nlllock nd "waited with quickened pulses the swift padding of feet among the sand dunes.

Suddenly Abdt sprang to hie full height and screamed fanatically: "I.a lllah Allah, Mohammed R A soul U Allah!" There came a sharp shot out of the silence that followed his challenging cry, and the Arab tumbled back, clutching hia arm. "Come on out of that, yon Jackals!" sang out a strong English speaking voice from the direction of the shot that had wounded Abdl. Cameron' breath nearly left hie body. "Ill, there!

"A mere scratch." he pronounced brusquely as he took nut a email case from his pocket, applied ointment and bandages. "There, my good fellow; you'll te sll right In a day or so.
