TMy eyes followed thom down tho

glanced back, nnd I lifted my hand.
Whqthor sho marked the gesture I

both ladles had disappeared without.

Intense confusion. Ab I lifted myself
slightly, dazod by tho BUdden uproar
and eager to learn its causo, the tent

cludo the cold night air, was hastily
Jerked asldo, and a man stepped with
in, casting ono rapid glanco about

A dozen eager voices answered him,
and men began to crawl out of their

"We can bo burdened with no help

sternly. "Only -those nble to ride. No,
