on the siding and began to move more

Behind It the thunder of an ap
proaching train grew momentarily In
volume lending color to tba theory of
Mr Barcua that what they bad heard
had been the whistle of s freighter
rather than of the light engine But
just as Alan waa about to advocate
leaving the tracks snd taking tbe head

train, lta rumble began to diminish.

"What do you make of that'" Alan
panted acroea tbe racking bar
"The obvious Uarcua returned.
"The freight ha taken the elding to

ready to Jump "
The grade became a Haws more
steep; the car moved with lea reluc
tance "Istl go." Alan advised "It'll coast
down the balance of tbla Incline and
we'd better save our strength "
But they bad barely regained their
breath and mopped the streaming
sweat away from their eyee when a
second whistle, of a different tone,
startled both bark to their leak
Catching the eye of Barcua Alan
nodded despelrlngly

It wa fully a quarter of an hour be
fore tbe growing rumble of tbe latter
warned tbe trio on the hand car. Just
as It gained tbe end of the grade and
addreaaed Itself to a level though tor

And at tbla point discovery of tbe
switch of a spur line that abot off
loutbward Into the hills furnished Alan
with his Independent Inspiration
Stopping the hand eat after It had

set the switch to shunt the pursuit off
to the spur, snd lesped back upon

Hardly had they succeeded In work
ing the hand rar up round tbe shoulder

of Its progress, shut off by an Inter
vening mountain, waa suddenly stilled
to a murmur

For once. In a wsy. It fell out pre
