,'BUIEN wns very dearly in a
mood to (shoot first nud make
Inquiries afterward. Yet even
iu that darkness he recognized
my voice m.d consented to lower the
gns which was Jammed ngalnsit my
breast. Donald had not recovered con
wiouHness. I paused long enough to
foci his pulse, which appeared rapid
md strong, yet there was nothing we
wiild do to relievo his condition be
yond the application of water. I used
O'Brien's belt to Btrap the lieutenant's
lout together, placed him in as eom
tortablo a position ns possible and
(ben. with strict injunction to the
trooper to remain close beside both
men, took up the extinguished lantern
and groped my way down the short
fcdder to the dismal tunnel, closing
fee trap behind me.
While the brisk action of the past
half hour had served somewhat to
tfady my -nerves, yet the memory of
fiat ghostly woman's face still haunt
i me, and I felt no inclination to at
tempt that passage alone in the dark
noes. The possibilities of murder lurk
fl at every step, and, while I was not
twly afraid, I felt my flesh creep at
fiM thought and took precaution to
Hgfct the lantern the Instant I was
safe at the foot of the ladder. ' Hold
ing It well In advance, yet not so as
to Mind my eyes, I hurried forward,
Vtchful of the shadows, but with
mind busy with details of the coming
attempt at escape, nere certainty lay
anr only chance of getting away. If
ve delayed until after daylight and
Tfcellen's command arrived meanwhile
we would be caught like rats In a
trap. But If we could manage1 to
strike Dodd's scattered followers from
the rear, surprising them by sudden
ness of attack, we might succeed In
Breaking away and by swift marching
attain our own lines In safety. This
itan offered a fighting chance at least,
end the more I studied It the stronger
terame Its appeal.
1 arrived at the bottom of the lad
der stairs, having seen nothing but
&e bare stone walls, and the hard
packed earth floor, reflected by the
yellow glow of the lantern. But at
tie top I met with a surprise that
fcft me staring blindly,' for the mo
ment distrusting my own eyes: there
Was no opening Into the hall! The
mantel bad been swung back into
(lace, leaving me fronting an appar
ently solid wall. Surely that heavy
mantel would never have swung
back Into position without human as
sistance. Who In the house would
have any reason to operate It except
Jean Denslow? The possibility of
ber escaping from that room In which
I had locked her had not before se
sTously occurred to me. yet hers was
S nature to dare much, and achieve.
Tf she had done the trick, then she
wwuM be on guard within. I rapped
npnlnst the front of the chimney,
perusing to listen, but hearing no
Kind in response. Then I pnt my
ftps close and spoke loud enough so
1 felt certain my voice would carry
to the hall without.
"Miss Denslow, are you there?"
VothlnR beyond the dim echo re
warded this effort, yet so convinced
Tts I of her presence that I perse
"I nm Lieutenant King; wo found
JOlonel Donald seriously wounded iu
e tunnel, and I lutve come back
wClor help. For tiie sake of hi life
enen this door."
, I heard her then distinctly, her
wflce Rounding ho clearly on to startle
by its nearness: apparently there
y in'nT let ween ua but tho thin
steel of the fire screen.
"Are are you telling me tho truth?"
''As God is my witness, yes; I am
alone, and O'Brien Is with Donald. If

She olie.-ed without the slightest
hesitutlon. nud the mantel swung so
suddenly 1 barely escaped being
struck. The next Instant, lantern still
In hand. I was beside ber. noting how
she shrank back, half frightened, at
my quick appearance from out the
"Don't be aUrnied," I exclaimed
hastily, feeling nothing must longer
delay my plans. "No. you are not to
go Into thnt hole alone. There is some
thing mysterious about the passage; we
found Donald with his throat slashed
exactly as those others were, only ho
still lives, and I believe will recover.
I mean to take you to him In n mo
ment, but you must wait here until
I come back. You will, will you not?
I can trust you?"
Her face was white, her eyes full of
"Yes, yes, but but nre you certain
he will liver
Even then these words, the deep feel
tng in the voice, hurt, almost angered
"There is no apparent reason whv
he should not," I answered, not alto-
gether pleasantly. ."There Is nothing
particularly serious about his injuries
so far as I could discover. A surgeon
and a nurse could bring him around
In short order. The Important matter
Is to get back to him just as soon as
possible. No, Mlis Denslow." and 1
caught her by the arm In restraint,
"you are not to tenturo Into that pas
sage alone. I shall be back here In n
moment to accompany you."
"But why cannot I go? You say he
Is hurt and suffering, and yet order
me not to go to him."
"I merely request you to remain here
for a moment until we can guard you
through the tunnel."
"Guard me?" her eyes searching the
dark opening. "From what? Is there
any peril there?"
"Honestly, I do not know, but It Is
no place for you to attempt to trav
erse alone. I will not permit it. See,
I am going to trust you fully to wait
my return. Take this revolver and
watch that opening until I come back."
She accepted it, our hands touching
for an iustant, before a vague sus
picion of my real purposo dawned
"What what are you planning to
do? Take your men through here?"
"Yes," I acknowledged, already at
the head of the stairs. "This Is our
opportunity for escape."
"And you believe I will be an ac
complice? You intend to use me for
the defeat of my own people?"
"No. Miss Denslow." and 1 came
back, looking directly Into her Indig
nant eyes. "There la no manner In
which you can possibly prevent our
escape In this way unless you delib
erately choose to kill me. You can do
that, for you hove my weapon In your
bund, and I stand hero unarmed. Ate
you willing to do that for the Confed
eracy?" 1 saw the flush sweep into her
cheeks, tho gray-blue eyes falling be
"No-no," she faltered, "not that."
"Then you are helpless to Interfere.

sistance of Colonel Donald, but If It
is your intention to make trouble, then
we shall have to lock you up again
and leave you behind. Which Is your
She could not doubt my sincerity, for
tho earnestness with which 1 spoke
was convincing. Her eyes uplifted to
mine for one single questioning In
stant. "I will wait," he said slowly, "but
but I believe I hate you."
"I would far rather you felt thus,

They came straggling forth from the
various doorways, blackened with pow
der smoke and sleepy eyed from the
long night vigil, yet a fairly tough
looking bunch of lighting men. and
ranged themselves before uie. They
had s- arcely had opportunity to ob
serve me before In the rush of that
first attaik. but the cavalry "Ulcer's
uniform 1 wore had nn immediate ef
fect, and they remained respectfully
silent, leaning on their carbines, wait
ing for me to sicak.
"Well, men." 1 said soberly, "we're
going out of this, but we are liable to
have a bit of stiff lighting before we
grt away. I'll explain the situation,
becnusa you will have to operate in tho
dark, and each man must use his own
judgment to some extent, although we i
will try to keep together. Those fel
lows out yonder are pari of Donald's
band of guerrillas, with a small sipiad
of regular cavalry. They'll outnumber
us a little over three t ) one, but are
scattered around the bouse, the main
foru bunched In front. I've been out
and looked them over, and if we can

and may show up at any minute. Are

Their faces as well as voices an

As I turned to step upon the stair
above two Bhots suddenly rang out In
the upper hall, the sharp reports those
of a revolver. Jean! It must be Jean!
I leaped forward, the men racing at

wav between the si air head and the
end of the hall, staring into the black
nesa of the open fireplace, the revolver
yet smoking in her band.
"What was It. Miss DenslowV What
were you thing a I?"
The tenseness of her muscles gave
way, and her Hlrv.iler form swayed
back against the support of my shoul
der, one band clasping at my sleeve.
"At something there there! God
kuows what. It looked like a woman,
but such u face such a face!"
"Yes, yes; I understand. I have seen
the same," I said hastily. "It was In
fear of such an appearance again that
1 gave you the revolver. Yet what is
it a vision of the brain or n reality?
1 have examined every inch of thnt
tunnel. 1 came through It nlouo ten
minutes ago and saw nothing. No one
could enter from tho other end or
from this without belug seen. The
mystery puzzles me."
"That was no vision, no specter
which I saw," sho Insisted. "See there
is a spot of blood on the screen. She

floor! I thought you would hear and

me, and the second time I fired
straight at her, and and she cried
out sharply and seemed to fade luto
that blackness there like a ghost"
We dropped Into the hole one by one
I was first to reach tho earth floor and
stood there holding tho lantern high
above my head.
"This tunnel runs directly west

no turns and nothing to fall over. All
you've got to do Is walk straight and
The whiteness of the girl's face was
conspicuous. I smiled back luto her
eyes, but met with no response. The
dull thud of tho feet behind, naturally
falling luto marching step, awoke muf
fled echoes, and I flung tho light as far
ahead as possible down tho channel
It was bnre, unoccupied. What hnd
become of that woman?
In the dsjkjiHasL l.fionlj.noj. see where
the wounded man lay. but I managed
to touch O'Brien, whispering to him to
take her at once to Donald. I heard a
kiss, the murmur of low voices con
versing, and, with gritted teeth, turn
ed back to hasten the movements of
the men below.
'Tp with you. lads no talking, but
come up one at a time."
I leaned over, counting as they came
up. their forms outlined by the flame
of the lantern in the channel. The last
one clan.bered through tho opening
and found room to stand in the nar
row space. The soldier below, the
light on his upturned face, still held
tlie lantern level with his head.
"Shall 1 put it out now. sir, and
come up?" he questioned.
"Yes they are all here.''
T saw him turn down the wick and
blow out the flame. In the dense
blackness below I heard him set the
lantern down and place his foot on
the first rung of the ladder. Then
there was a single sharp cry startled,
agonized -a moan, and the heavy fall
of a body. Without a thought I
leaped through the hole down Into the
darkness. I struck against a prostrate
figure, stumbled slightly, rattling tho
lantern with my fool; my extended
hand gripped at something, wtiicti
gave way, and I stood groping blindly
about without a sound to guide me.
I knew what had happened, and now,
the first mad rush over, my heart was
In my throat. I felt for the lantern
with mr foot, found it nt last, and
managed to apply n match to the
wick. At the foot of the ladder lay
the soldier, a knife thrust In his
throat, his head bent back, his dead
eyes staring up nt me. In the grip of
mv fingers was n rag4 a strip of red
calico, evidently ripped from a dress.
That was all.
With heart beating rapidly I re
traced my steps, moving backward.
tho lantern held before me. Corporal
Masterson, with two troopers, was nt
the foot of the bidder bending over
the motionless form. The corporal
straightened up. his face white.
"Seiners is dead, sir," he said, his
voice full of horror "knifed in the
"Yes, corporal. It Is a part of the
iuvsler.y of this house."
"Take the body up the ladder," I
They went at the grewsome Job re
luctnntly, yet evidently glnd enough to
get out of the hole, two of them lift
ing from above, with Masterson help
Ing below. As tho corporal's legs dls
appeared I mounted close behind,
holding the lantern beneath and lay
ing hold of the trap before I extlu
gulshed the light. It was with a dis
tinct feeling of relief that I closed the
heavy Tloor null slooil upbuTL
"Everything right here?'
"Jlst. about as ye left it, sor, only

Wc were Instantly quiet, tbe men
holding their breath to listen. I conld
distinguish a sound as though of mov
ing bodies, but was unable to guvs
at the cause.
"What ts It?"
"nurses, sor. They've got them
picketed oat there somo rob an'

Numerous young ladies and gen
