and his men are in camp. Wilkerson
and Drake are wide awake before the
vest of tlit' men fully arouse they
have a conference regarding tht'b
perilous situation. Drake tells Wil
k'erson that it would be best for him
to throw the idol away, but Wilkerson
wants to keep it as a souvenir and a
memento of his good luck.
Meanwhile, trouble is brewing for
both Wilkerson's and Dore's party,
for high up in the hills the surviving
Hindu priest has appealed to the fana
tical hillmen to avenge the murder of
his brothers and to retake the idol
from the white men. The chief of the
hillmen is exceedingly nngered and
calls on his men to join him in a wir

While the ball is in progress nt the

have bee-i hired by Sir Donald's 'for

to the soldiers and they accompany
him. They have gone only a few
miles, however, when they are dis

Wilker.ion and his party in their
deserted hut hear tho firing and pre

Much experience of thirsty tramps
had caused the author of "An English

roiul, he met one of this guild, who ac
costed 1 1 1 1 1 1 with I lie preliminary touch
of tils cap. Mr. Illssey anticipated him
by exclaiming: ,
"1 be mortal thirsty! Have you, good
sir, the price of a glass of ale about
you? I've driven nearly fifty miles to
day, and since the morning not a bite
of fond lias passed my lips."
Tile look of astonishment t li.it Ira nip
gave me was a ilellght h observe. Rut
this tramp' was a man of ready re
source, and, seeing I was a hopeless
case, he rose to the occasion and
promptly exclaimed, with what dignity
he could commtiud aud'with a comical
