"Yes, by my faith," broke in Ned Cos tillo. "we're a thousand limes more afraid of an old she-fiend like you than we are of all the warriors in your tribe—" "I'd like to ask, interrupted Mike, "if a woman of your physical and moral pe culiarities ever succeed in getting a hus band "if she did,'' answered Ned, with a reckless laujrh, "I'd bet my life she frightened the poor wretch into a mar riage. If she has any daughters like herself, they must be the belles of the tribe—so sweet and amiable." Mike, laughing loudly now that he saw that his words and manner were work ing the old woman into a state of fury. "•Save your laughter," hissed the hag, "till the scalping knife tear through your crowns and your hair is torn off to adorn the belts of our braves." "We shall not flinch then," said Ber t*-«m Leroy calmly! "You will not?" she repeated. "Why, [ou look more like a woman than a man." "Don't insult your own sex, Bertram, by telling her that she looks more like man than a woman." laughed Mike. "No need for that," she chuckled. "To night, flames, yellow as your own hair, will lick with blistering tongues your handsome face, and the hot smoke will eat into your beautiful eyes. Oh, we shall see—we shall see." "The chief sends orders to leave the prisoners alone for the present." This was said by a slender, beautiful girl whose glossy black hair covered her rounded shoulders like a mantle of silken floss.

When the immigrants learned that the young people at the head of the line were cut off, a wail of anguish went up from the women, to which the frightened children added their voices. The three men with most reason to feel discouraged and crushed by this startling news, were (Jen. Greyson, Col. Leroy and Mr. Costillo. but in the loss of their loved ones they never for an instant for got. the alarmed people whose lives de pended on their leaders' keeping cool. After ihe rear of the line entered the Tass, Whirlwind did not dare to follow up. In that profound rift his superior numbers would avail him nothing. They had entered a trap from which nothing but a miracle could save theni, and the savage chief had 110 knowledge of miracles. The whites must he destroyed in the Pass. Kiihmond would hold them in check while the Unca-pah-pahs finished the work. Deciding on what was necessary to do in order most effectually to accomplish his sanguinary undertaking, Whirlwind speedily dismounted a score of his young est men and swiftest runners. The nature of the inclosing hills forced the attacking parry to confine themselves to one side of the Pass. Like mountain antelopes the braves swarmed up the rocks, emulating each the other in speed and daring leaps. They were to tise their arrows on the people in the rift when they came up with them, or if rocks could be more effective, they were to hurl them down till uot a living thing remain ed in the path of their whirling, thun dering flight. "It looks as if our hour had come." said Gen. (Jreyson to Col. Leroy, when the shooting and shouting in front had check ed the advance. Col. Leroy tugged at his long beard. Like all the men. and the women and children, too, after the hopelessness of the situation became evident, he was as calm in appearance as if considering an ordinary problem. "Do not lose heart," said Col. Leroy at length. "I see one chance for escape." "Where?" asked the general. "In a cross-rift that cuts into the Pass about a quarter of' a mile lower down. Come, push on with all speed. I hear |he savages back on the cliffs." The order to advance rang back, and again the cavalcade advanced. Following the general's directiong the riflemen watched the cliffs, and every time a black head rose to view a bullet sped up from the depths, and a fierce cry rang down Crow the cliffs. Vnheeding Col. Lero.v's entreaty to fol low the party, he threw his Spencer rifle over a projection in the rocks, and bend ing till the muzzle was nearly perpendic ular with the wall of the Pass, ho opened fire, nor did he stop till every shot, was exhausted in the magazine, and the foe had vanished from the heights. "Now you will surely come." said the colonel, laying his hand They fid push on, with Mr. Costillo, who had been anxiously waiting for them but they had not gone more than a hundred yards before they came upon the rear of the column, and found that it had halted. "Why do you stop?" asked .Gen. Grey son. The man addressed did not know, but a young man appeared from under the feet of the horses. He was breathless, and ashy of face. "Well. .Jack Muir, why don't thev go ahead?" "I came back to tell you, General." gasped .Tack Muir, who, with his sisters, Nancy and Mary, had narrowly escaped being cut off when Bertram Leroy found retreat impossible. "A great stone has fallen into the cleft aud it is impossible to creep under it or climb over it." "IIow far in front is it?" "About two hundred feet.'' "And between here and there all the people and animals are wedged in?" "Yes, General," replied the young man. Gen. Greyson showed no sign of dis appointment. His thin lips were set, and there burned in his gray eyes tile awful light of despair. Turning to Col. Leroy, who again had been tugging at his tawny beard, the general said: "I will make my way to my wife, and remain with her till the end comes. It cannot be far off." "First come with me," replied the col onel. "Where to?" "To this obstruction." "Willingly, if you say so. But there are bright men in the advance, and if they cannot go ahead we cannot help them." "That may be but first I want to learn for myself if we have exhausted the ca pacity of this place." Past the men they pushed, and under the feet of the horses they crept. Strange that they should be impressed under such circumstances with the stillness of the horses and mules, and the hush that was on the patient, white-faced women and their children. With much difficulty Gen. Greyson and Col. Leroy reached the head of the line, and they found the situation exactly as Jack Muir had represented it. To advance was impossible. Only a bird could sur mount the rock that had fallen in from above and wedged the rift from wall to wall. Mr. Costillo looked at the ponderous mass of granite, and shook his head sad ly. It was impossible to retreat, for the animals could not be turned round in tha narrow passage, and backing them ountain front the rocks loosened by Captain Richmond's party could be heard thun dering into the rift, with the roar aud rush of mighty artillery. As rapidly as the nature of the roadway would admit Col. Leroy led the way. tak ing care meanwhile that there were no spaces in the line. He reached a point from which ho could see Richmond's men, and at. this place a narrow cleft, like a great seam, cut into the precipitous wall on the right. It did not look wide enough for the passage of a man, much less for that of a horse but as rapidly as the animals having the women and children came up the colonel ordered them into that seemingly impassable cleft. And one by one they vanished as if they were being swallowed by a huge mouth. By the time the last liorse had disap peared with his precious burden Whirl wind's men and Richmond's had united forces, and began the attack. The gen eral saw them, and the calmness and strength which had distinguished him in the most trying moments of many a hanl I'ought field forsook him for the nonce. 011 his shoulder and gently moving him forward. Geu. Greyson realized for the first time how very imprudent this very natural conduct was, and ho said to his friend "The monsters that have made me childless were in sight, and for my life I could not resist." "We must now think of the living," said the colonel, gently. "Where does this passage lead to?" "Up to the mountains." "IIow do you know that we make any thing by entering it?" "My sou and an Indian—Halpali, one of my servants—have been through here 011 foot. It is the best that offers, and if need be we can abandon the animals." "And so make our.way to your place?" "Yes." '"Very well, let us push on." was out of the question, oven if a greater danger did not lie behind. as ffared," said the general. "I will rejoin my wife.'" Col. Leroy did not seem to hear him. He stood looking into a black chasm that yawned in the wall, not ten feet back from where the great rock had fall en. The geueral was about to speak again, when, with a suppressed cry, Col. Leroy darted forward. "N\ hat is it?" asked tile general, re straining him. "The cave!" exclaimed Leroy. "The cave?" "Yes, the mystic cave of the Sioux!" "Where is it?" "Right before us, or I will say that even heaven has forsaken us to our fale." "But you say you were never here be fore?" "Nor was 1." "How do you know, then, that there is a cave here?" "My poor Bertram entered a cave here with the Indian Ilalpah. The Indian for some reason did not lead him far per haps he was superstitious. But as I re call what he told me I am more and more convinced this is the place." He entered tile opening that looked so gloomy and forbidding it was large enough to admit four men abreast, and higher than a tall man could reach. He could not see through the further dark ness, but by the twilight about the space where he stood, he realized that he was 011 the side of a chamber wide and spa cious—large enough to hold a mounted squadron and leave room for evolutions. Col. Leroy hastened back and commu nicated his discovery of a place that held out the hope of refuge and sanctuary, at least for the present. A gasp of relief came from the people, and the women who held children in their arms bent over them and kissed them. Fortunately the entrance to this remarkable place was just at the head of the line, so that there was 110 trouble in getting in with the animals, even without dismounting. By the time the rear of the column had entered, the first comers had grown so ac customed to the lesseued light as to bo able to see on every hand for some dis tance. Then the women and children were lifted to the ground, and friends grasped hands as if they had been long parted, as soldiers clasp hands after they escape the carnage of the charge in which they dashed on side by side. "Well," said Mr. Costillo. rubbing his eyes and looking about him, "wonders will never cease. Faith, this looks like a page out of the Arabian Nights. We were trapped, if ever people were in the world, and when all seemed lost, tile col onel rubbed the magic ring and his good genii hollowed out this place of refuge like a flash." (To be continued.) Still Sadder. "It is said," murmured the musing theorizer. "to think that every man has his price." "Yes," admitted the intensely prac tical worker, "and it is a sad fact that half the time ho can't get it." The Gentle Touch.

The army appropriation bill was passed by the Senate on Saturday and also an urgency measure appropriating $100,000 for the relief of the volcano sufferers in the French West Indies. Mr. Perkins reported the fortifications appropriation bill. Mr. Proctor reported the bill mak ing appropriations for the Department of Agriculture. A bill for the sale of sites for industrial plants in Indian Ter ritory was passed. A resolution offered hy Mr. Harris calling upon the Secretary of the Interior for information as to the sale of Indian lands in Kansas was adopted. Mr. Proctor offered a resolu tion, which was adopted, calling upon the Secretary of War for information as to how many Barbette carriages have been manufactured since July 1, l.S'.lo, and other information as to the disap pearing gun carriages. A resolution by Mr. Patterson calling upon the Interstate? Commerce Commission for information as to safety appliances in use In the Senate 011 various named railroads was also adopted. In the Senate on Monday the Philip pine bill again held the right of way. The House emergency bill appropriating $20CUMM.i for the relief of volcano suffer ers was passed. On motion of Mr. Proc tor the vote by which the army appro priation bill was passed was reconsidered and the bill amended so as to restrict the provision for the sale of army posts to those of Indianapolis. Columbus and Buffalo, and authorizing the President to use the money derived therefrom in purchasing other lands in the vicinity and constructing other posts also :o authorize the subdivision of this prop erty. As amended the bill was passed.

In the House discus sion of the naval appropriation bill was begun. The conference report 011 the omnibus claims bill was rejected on the ground that claims not considered by either branch of Congress had been in serted in the measure by the conferees and the measure was returned to con ference. During the greater part of the Senate session on Wednesday the fortifications appropriation bill was under considera tion. Mr. Proctor offered an amend ment providing that 110 part of the appro priation made should be used for procur ing disappearing gun carriages. This pre cipitated a debate which continued for two hours, and had not been concluded when the measure was laid aside for the day. A further conference on the omni bus claims bill was agreed to, with Messrs. Warren, Teller and Mason as the conferees. In the House the naval appropriation bill occupied attention throughout the day. Mr. Dayton (W. Va.) spoke 011 IVa.) spoke the lied of strengthening 011 the need of strengthening W. Kitehiu (N. C.), Fitzgerald (N. Y.), Metealf (Cal.) and Maynard (Va.) strong ly advocated the building of warships in government navy yards.

The conference report 011 the Cuban diplomatic and consular bill was agreed to. Thursday in the Senate was chiefly oc cupied with debate 011 011 the Philippine bill. The bill providing for the erection of a union railway station in Washington and the fortifications appropriations bill were passed, the former by a vote of 45 to 2-1, and the latter without division after the adoption of an amendment proposed by Mr. Proctor, making the acceptance of disappearing gun carriages conditional upon tests. A conference on the agri cultural appropriation bill was agreed to. with Messrs. Proctor. Hansbrough and ate as conferees. The conference re port the omnibus claims bill was pre sented by Mr. Warren, the conferees be ing unable to agree on the Selfridge board claims. The report was agreed to. A hill to establish an Indian agricultural school at Wahpeton, N. D., was passed. In the House the debate on the naval ap propriation bill veered into the Philippine question, and when adjournment was tak en the measure was being read for amendment. The Senate amendments to the agricultural approbation bill were disagreed to, and the uill was sent to conference, with Messrs. Wadswortli, llenry (Conn.) and Williams (Miss.) as the House conferees.

THE EQUITABLE OIL [TRANSPORTATION] statute for legitimate busi ness activity, not lor specu lation. Its mi.Hon d'etre is to eut moiH'y out of the earth, not out of the public. The day is piist for wild-cat companies with marvelous properties (all on paper), professing to let you in "on the ground floor." The time has now come for men and companies who propose to make their money, not out of the sale of unlimited quantities of share certificates, but by taking from the earth its treasure oC oil, and transporting it by the most economic means to the best paying mar kets. This is our purpose. For months our 1 agents have explored varioiM Texas oil 1 Holds seeking properties whose product can be most economically brought to market, and options have been secured on what seemed most promising. All the money required for this" preliminary- work has been furnished by the officers oft his company and the co»t of drilling the first well will like wise be furnished by them. Not one penny will bea»ked orreceived from the public until our enterprise has pass- Then transportation facil ities will be needed and your money can be used, but not until then. Should our 1 borings all prove fuilures the I entire expenditure will be at our own cost, and you will not and cannot be called upon to pay a single cent. This we consider equitable and just. Conservative investors who desire actual assets rather than Inflated paper values, will recognize in this offer a rare opportunity for an abso lutely safe investment, since all the risks of the experimen tal period will be borne by the organizers of the company. With such an offer, it cannot be long until the limited a-1 mount of stock set aside for 1 this purpose will all be ap plied for. If you desire any portion of It you must apply without delay. Until our first well is aMi'iflilv'flAu/inft vith a well flowing actually flowing only 6,000 barrels per day i! yOU Will not DO is easy to compute Jbow great called ilpOll must oe our profits although for a penny* Belling our product at the *ow prices now prevailing la Texas—abnormally low because of the Lftr?w and —r rv-. "Y* BUT WE WILL YOURAMONEY K.MENT.NG STAGE ert the ex'pprl-1IS PASSED mental stage to that of producing activity— not until subscriptions can be invited as safe investments rather than speculative •flyers." There will come a time (probably soon) after our borings become productive.when a limited amount of additional capital can be used in providing a pipe lino to the loading wharf, and steel barges in which to float the oil up the Mississippi to the great manufacturing centers of *ho Ohio, Mississippi und Missouri valleys, where it can command the highest price as fuel. In order that this need for ad ditional capital may be promptly met when the proper time comes, we will now set aside a sufficient portion of the treasury stock, full paid and non-assessable, which we will reserve for early appli cants at only 10 cts. per snare and no remittance whatever is to be made by subscribers until the company's wells are actually producing. the present very limited lacllittes for transportation. But having our own pipe line and our own steel barges we shall be independent of the transporta tion monopoly and can market our pro duct where it will secure the best prices. Sinoe S barrels of oil are the equivalent of 'ton of coal, and since waterways furnish the cheapest method of transportation, ft is not difficult to see how enorm ous must be our profits when we are able to carry our oil In our own bargee to any river or gulf port which may offer the best market. Figure it out for -ourself. When the first well begins to low and while we must Btill depend upon the local market for our sales, your stock will be worth at least double the price at which reservations are now offered. If subscriptions are taken after that date they will surely be at not less than 20 cents per share, and when our first Mississippi 1 barges are floated the values will advance by leaps and bounds, until dollar signs will take the nlace of cent marks In the I VE Ignres which will tell the market value of your shares.
