Into several passage, every turning of

"In a straight line, not more than five

"That U a trifle, for I was afraid I

which are ttrarce to me."
White mylnc this, Valentine had risen
to explore the clearing. The storm had

clouds, the deep blue ky wa studded
with brilliant stars and the moon pro

"T( a magnificent night," the hunter

"Aa for that," the hunter said, with a
mite, "I cannot satlafy you; at any rate
not for the present. Hut be eaay. I will
not put your patience to too loos a trial."

There was something grand and solemn
In this simple aet, performed by these

him the title of Capatat.
No Csrnero was the wit of the cara

"Caral!" the master exclaimed. "If

"Nonsense" Camera remarked with a
grin of derision. "Indians tell as many

This ascent was executed with such
well calculated etounca that It had not
produced I ho slightest sound. Moreover,
the buffalo robo left at the foot of the
tree so well retained Its primitive folds,
that It was Impossible to discover, with
out touching It, that th man It sheltered
had left It.
Hefore selecting as his resting place th
foot of the treo In which he was now
concealed, the guld had assured himself
that this tree, which wa very high and
leafy, was Joined at about two-third of
Its height by other trees.
After a few minutes' hesitation, th

from one tree to another, hanging by his

quarters of an hour. At length the guld
stopped, looked attentively around him,
and gliding down the trunk, reached the

himself was a rather spacious cletulnr, In

visitor to let him draw breath and warm

and addreed htm deferentially:

Curumllta laid hi right hand on hi
chest and uttered with a guttural accent.
"I'gh!" which was with him a mark of
the greatest Joy.
The Jester and his warriors bad ?en
too long acquainted with Curumllta for
hb silence to s-ea strange; hence they
yielded to his mania, and giving up the
hope of getting a syllable out of his closed
lips, began a conversation In signs.

Th chief recommenced hi aerial trip

good fortune. After a lapse of time com
paratively much shorter than that which

the ramp of th white men. The sam
silence prevailed in Ita Interior; th sen
