, CHAPTER XIL--( Continued.)
But Betty now tried her wiles
Meta. English, her smattering
French and a base maceration of Ger
man were hurled at tho black girl'
cars. Meta pretended to understand
nothing Betty said to her. Tyoga was
absent, Lc Malheureux, apparently had
disappeared into thin air. and Betty
was llk'o a caged lioness. She was per
mltted to warder through the castle,
for such tho edifice proved to be, but
with Meta ercr at her side. The ar
chltccturo of tho castle was of non
descrlpt typ and it was rudely fash
. loned of granite, moss and vine grown
and, surrounded by parked gardens
filled with tropical foliage and flowers,
At tho end of the gardens was a mias
matic river, thickly green and vile of
odor, filled with rank reptiles and nau
seous water plants. Beyond tho river
stretched,, the desert, yellow and hard,
All this you could see from the upper
windows of the castle, farther than a
radius of fifty yards around tho por
ticos Betty nor her handmaiden was
not allowed to set foot. Within the
castle was a small sandpacked court
with an asthmatic fountain and heat-
wrung plants. There Betty and Meta
sat and Betty read tho few books that
were available, tried to teach Meta to
dance and learned dances of her in re
turn; tried, too, to learn Meta's gut
tural speech and failed sadly In teach
ing English to Meta. Which, along
with certain other occurrences that
happened as time went on, made Betty
fairly certain that Meta already spoke
English, or else understood it so per
fectly that the girl was under instruc
tlons to betray no familiarity with the
foreign tongue. A favorite game of
these two girls became a variation of
lawn tennis, a native game, which they
played seated, hurling over a low net
celluloid balls of light weight and gay
The evening of the third day Betty
grew overwhelmed with such an un
controllable lonelineiis that she could
not help crying. Meta, who had just
brought her supper of cocoanut, fresh
ly cut, mixed with pineapples and
guavas, a trussed pigeon, figs, dates,
and fell sobbing, too, and tried Inar
ticulately to find out what she want
"Tyoga, Tyoga!" walled Betty. Her
nerves were at breaking point and the
Jackal who howled In the hills to the
north was crazing her with his yowl
ing, and she was sick, so sick, of it
all, of the mystery, the silence, the
Aieta nesitatea ana men ran away
like a deer. She came back troubled
after an absence of a quarter of an
hour or so, bearing In her hand a wax
tablet on which was written in an old
fashioned slanting hand:
"Tyoga cannot come to you yet Will
you be patient but a little longer? She
is very busy. She will try and come
In a few mornings."
Betty took the tablet to bed with
her, telling, herself that she was get
ting positively foolish.
Meta went along, caressing her as
much as she dared. Betty began to
lose sight of the fact that Meta's skin
was black. She had already done this
with Tyoga. As Meta aided Betty to
disrobe the slave's hand caught in the
slender chain of the little gold locket
that Betty wore always round her
throat, and snapped its links asunder.
The chain fell to the floor, and as it
hit the tiling the locket flew open,
disclosing Larry Morris' face. Meta
picked It up, sighted the face, and
girl-like, scented the trouble. . She
gazed Intently at Larry's counterfeit
presentment, studying It closely. Then
she nodded her approval and shook an
accusing finger at Betty, which moved
Betty to tears again.
Meta laughed, and with much slm-
- perlng began to finger around within
the capacious flounces of her striped
kilt With much perspiration, and
with what Ynlght have been blushes on
a fairer skin she finally produced an
odd little hand, painstakingly carved
from ivory with inlaid nails and veins
of gold. She held this high for Betty
to gaze at, then pointed alternately to
herself and Larry Morris' picture with
such Illuminating pantomimes that
Betty immediately estimated that the
ivory hand was the troth-sign of Meta
and of a somewhere dusky-beloved!
Tyoga was three days In coming.
Then she waB much distraught and
looked like a ragged edition of her
once buxom self. First she called
Meta aside and spoke with her long
and earnestly Betty would have vow
ed it was in French. Then Tyoga came
"You are in danger of your life," Bho
aid, simply. "We all are. We are
orry for this, Miss Lancey, wo had
not expected It Wo had thought all
dangers were well guarded against,
that all precautions had been taken.
You and Meta must bo left alone here
In the caatlo for weeks. But be not
afraid. Besides tho secret entrance
which none knows but Meta, there Is
no approach to the castle save from
that river on tho south and to cross
that" she shuddered "to cross that Is
to swallow death. I have promised
you a safe return to your people, and I
go now to make that assurance doubly
sure. Le Malheureux sends you his
best wishes, and Is sorry he cannot
come in person, and now, farewell!"
Tho negresa turned and left tho two
girls together, Betty terror-stricken,
homesick, unnerved, Meta stolid, Im
mobile as the castle Itself.
For several weeks the weather was
fine, almost supernatural In Its beauty
nd flow. Vmtty trolled the caitlo over j
for hint or traco of any electrical ap
paratus, but none did she find. Thoro
wero dozens of chambers similar to the
one she occupied, what might bo a
throne room, a great dining hall, a
mammoth kitchen, and one big room
that possibly was an observatory, but
which was most securely bolted, barred
and cemented shut Even American
prowess dared not tamper with such
solidity of masonry.
Meta and Betty had finally accom
plished a species of pigeon dialect that
like Crusoe and his man Friday per
mltted them to signify their wants and
dislikes but prohibited tho dangerous
conversation of confidences and per
sonal communications unto which
women are so prone to fall! Betty had
given up the Idea of tho note in a bot
tie, me sensational wireless message
and such like methods of communlca
tlon with the loved ones at home, and
those of the newspaper fraternity in
particular ever slnco sho caught sight
of tho pigeons. She surreptitiously
carved this measage, "Betty Lancey,
Africa," on the wing of many a poor
suffering bird and vainly tried to shoo
it briskly away In tho direction that
sho thought housed civilized people.
This carving was a work of perspiring
labor but it diverted Betty more suc
cessfully than anything elso might
have done. This occupation amused
and exhilarated because it revolved
around the constantly diminishing
germ of Hope that so was near to dy
ing in Betty's bosom.
uirst or all, she had nothing to
scratch with but a hairpin. And with
tropical sun, and sea voyaging, hair
pins had become scarce enough to be
valuable. Second, Meta was always
watching, and thirdly, you never could
finish a bird at one sitting and It was
terrible to try to catch any of the
birds, and worse yet to get hold twice
In succession of the same bird you had
been working on last Frequently there
would be as many as three dozen birds,
half bedecked with Betty's carving,
hopping around at one time. Betty
held the thought that If one of these
birds should perchance be picked up it
might send people within a continent
of finding her.
There was something romantic about
living in this desert and swamp-bound
castle until the rains came on. Then
it was more aggravating than anything
Betty could ever have imagined.
Worse than any city editor I know
starting out to play wrecking crew
with an entire office," sho commented.
tor an African rain In the central
part of that shadowy continent is not
rainstorm as we know it The lakes,
the rivers, the sea Itself seem to have
risen and to be descending In flat lay
ers and sheets of the wettest wet that
ever mortal knew. Lightning In more
varieties than Betty had dreamed
might ever have been patented broke
round the grim old castle, and the two
lonely young girls loved tho goat hard
er than ever.
Later they had an addition to their
family. A decrepit old Hon, a beast so
mangy, worm eaten and toothless that
one longed In pity to kill him then and
there, crept in from the Jungle one
cold, raln-pelted night Ho frightened
tne two gins hair to death at first
sight, then they both laughed heartily
at sight of his Infirmities and took him
in and made him royally welcome. He
expressed his gratification In croupy
roars mat caused Betty to long to feed
him lard and sugar, the same as her
mother had given her when she was a
croupy, wheezy kiddle.
But as a burglar alarm those roars
were the best of all inventions, as
Betty expressed it in tho Journal sho
was pretending to keep.
"As a perfectly proper property Hon,
ut njuiior Burton is a peach."
Betty had named the lion "City Edi

Inquirer ofilce whoso very voice was
calculated to instantly remove tho

was because Tyoga had not told Betty

So strong had grown the attachment
between Meta and Betty that tho

English with rare perfection, had much

A few weeks ago there was talk of
