the chirr and chirp of crickets :

She came stepping, oh, so lightly I
To the old gate made of pickets.

and a voice that hummed low
' Of a song, while there she hurried,
throueh the moonlight's silvery
To the rose-grown gate, above her
And her softly singing lover,
With Its blossom-tangled cover
And Its weight and wooden latches.
Whom she met there, whom she kissed

Borne white moth tlhat frailly settles
On Its gold and crimson petals,
Where the garden runs to nettles

Harry opened his eyes and looked
around him like one awaking from a
muddled dream. He was lying on a
oft bed of lone, serrated leaves that
bad been stripped from great tree
ferns that grew near at hand.
An old, withered, bright-eyed Indian
woman, who snt beside him, placed a
leuther bottie to his lips, from which
he drnnk eagerly of pineapple chlca.
The wine stimulated him and cleared
his head, and he sat up and looked
around him Inquiringly. A short dis
tance from him his burro was brows

Then she proceeded to tell him that

his coming and wos there at the edgp
of the desert to roeelve him, and that

"You are seeking the lost mine near
the little lake in the heart of 101 Tres
Dlablos," sho said, "but I do not think
you will find It. But this I will tell
you: If you can draw the water from
the small, deep basin that contains the
lake, you will find on Its rocky floor
more wealth than was ever possessed
by the Montezunms.
"Tons of blocks of gold belonging to
the people who owned the mine were

may not tell you, but here I declare to
you that I spenk the truth."
Thirty days after crossing that val

mapped the little lake and so much
of Its environs as he cared to possess,
and then took his departure for Mex

"Have you not heard V asked Frank,
excitedly. "Tell me tell me quickly.

Frank struggled vainly to control his
emotion, replied: "Shortly after your

automobile accident near Florence,
Italy," said Frank.
Whtte os marble, Harry stood for a
moment like one turned to stone. Then
he reeled and would have fallen, but
Frank put his strong arms about him
and laid him down tenderly upon a
puma'a skin. The old woman hovered
evur him, weeping and utteruia- w4rd
incantations. Presently, when he be
gan breathing, she gave him some
chica, and shortly afterward he open
ed his eyes, sighed slowly and deeply,
and then, in a weak voice, tremulous
with a never-to-be-spoken misery, he
said: "I thank you, my dear friends."
That was all.
There was a point on the rim of
the little lake where its dark, deep wa
ters were confined by a mighty wall of
rock. It spanned a chasm a hundred
feet wide, and from Its top one looked
down into a ravine that lost itself in
darkness, and at the bottom of which
two of the slopes of El Tres Dlablos
came together and found a common
For weeks a huge drill had been bor
ing Its way down through that wall of
rock to the level of the bottom of the
lake. Two days after the drill had
been finally withdrawn the peons were
directed to gather up the mules and
drive thom Into the corral at the camp,
and to remain there until further or
ders. When all had reached the camp,
Harry, with pale face and set features,
with Frank at his side, uncovered an
electric battery and pressed a button.
A terrific explosion followed. A column
of fire and smoke shot toward the zen-
1th. A sound like a crash of many
thunders rent the shuddering air.
. The mountains rocked and trembled
os though smitten by a mighty cata
clysm. Wild beasts forsook their cav-
eras and ran aimlessly through the
brakes and Jungles. The peons and the
mules In the corral staggered and trem
bled with fear. The old Indian wom
an turned her face to the sun and
threw herself upon the earth with ab
ject terror. Harry hastened to her
side, and, raising her up tenderly,
said: "It is all over. There is no
danger ; come with me and see the cat
aract that is rushing down the gorge."
The following morning disclosed an
empty basin where the water had beeu,
and now It Is known among the In
dians as "the place of the lake of

"Frank," said Harry, as he saw the
look of amazement in the face of his
friend, "we are standing in the midst
of the lost mine, with wealth enough In
sight to enrich a nation."
When Frank and the old Indian
woman were leaving El Tres Dlablos
furnished apartment A valet entered
and offered his services and .stated that
a conch would be sounded for break-
fast in half an hour -
"Will you kindly inform me where
I am?" Inquired the gentleman.
"You are at the bungalow," replied
"It Is called the Eufaula," answered
After a short silence the gentleman
asked : "To whom does it belong?"
"To Master Harry," was the reply.
"And where Is it located?" was the
"On tne isle of Los Palmos," was
"Pardon me," said the gentleman,
"but could you tell me to whom the

"One more question: Can you tell
me In what part of the Carrlbean the
island is located?"
"Not many miles off the coast of
Colombia, near the mouth of the Ris
del Hache," replied the valet.
Just then the soft note of the conch
was heard, and the guests assembled
on a broad veranda, facing the sea.
They had barely time to observe that
the most beautiful bungalow they had
ever beheld was constructed mainly pf
bamboo and palm, when the butler ap
peared and conducted them Into the

were still standing, a tall, broad-shouldered
young man In spotless white en

bowed low to his guests. Gen. Ewlng
uttered no sound, but stood looking at
his host like one hypnotized. Ferruby

The wind held true from the north,

daybreak the rescued passengers were
resting in elegant apartments in the
bungalow, and the crew were cared
for on board the Ferruby, which lay at
anchor In Manatee bay.
The passengers consisted of a woman
and two men, one of whom was a cler
gyman. The other, when safe on board
the yacht, became anxious as he ob

"With men the question of when a
woman is most attractive Is doubly
complicated, because it depends not
only on the woman, but on the taste of
the man himself. Not many years ago,
if this question had been osked, the
answer would have been unhesitatingly
made that a woman is most attractive
between the ages of 16 and 20. Most
