disturbance that had wakened me, but
I found my head against a tent stake
and concluded that was what had done
It was a Rtill as death In the ten.t
except for an occasional move from
Mrs. Bonton. Everytlme I got on tho
verge of sleeping, Mrs. Benton would
give one of her nasal sighs and I would
start up again.
Finally I gave up the attempt and
untying tho tent-flaps peeped out Into
tho darknecs The ghostly watchman
was Btlll on his rounds. I watched the
phantom lantern make several turns
before I was aware of a companion
spectator, a dark figure crouched upon
the gravel. I could have reached out
and touched him. bo I lay perfectly
still and watched. The figure was mo
tioi les-s for fully a minute, then uttered
a groan and disappeared In the other
tent I listened Intently, filled with
horror. I felt sure the man was crazy
and was going to do something dread
fulbut I couldn't have yelled if my
life had depended upon it
Presently ho was out again drag
ging a dark object In my imagination
I could recognize Jack's figure In the
bulky thing but it proved to be a sad
dle and he was hunting thiough the
bags. Suddenly he sprang up and put
something to his eyes. Pete's field
glasses! When the harmlessness of it all
dawned upon me I laughed hysterically
with relief. But leaning back I hit that
same old stake and cried out Involun
tarily. When I looked out again the
figuro had disappeared.
Tho next morning the professor did
not have much of an appetite. He said
he was suffering from indigestion, and
referred regretfully to the pie he had
eaten at supper.
Later in the morniug he began to
get nervous and I noticed that ho
looked towards the ledge pretty often
rather the side of tho mountain
which had seemed to intoiest him the
"Beautiful place, this Pit." he final
ly remarked, nervously, as the men hat
In front of the tent smoking. Father
turned around and looked at the west
side, which was dazzling in the sun
light. "It is a pretty place," he assented,
"qulto a good place for children, too
That's why we come up here every
"Pretty high altitude up here, isn't
l," tho man asked anxiously, nodding
towards the high walls.
"Well." father answered, "the Peak
is 14,444 feet. I should think we were
about 12,500, shouldn't you. Bonton?"
ho said, turning to Mr Benton.
"You know," that individual an
swered lazily. "I always thought the
Peak was Ki.OOO, but We'll lot the Pit
go at 12,500."
"12,500 feet." the Professor ejacu
lated. By Jove! It's no wonder my
heart's been troubling me so! I could
not sleep last night it pumped all the
night." and the man looked pathetical
lly wan and white
Mr. Benton and father told him how
how sorry they were, of course. But
tno visitor Insisted that he would bo
endangering his life if he risked an
other night at such an altitude.
"I really think, Mr. Benton," turn
Ingt to that gentleman, "that I shall
have to leave this merry company.-!
have enjoyed my visit with you Im
mensely," and ho looked toward the
ledge "but I'm afraid I don't dare
stay longer. My wife will be waiting
for men In Manitou."
Everyone said they woro sorry he
had to go and father and Mr. Benton
were qulto insistent that he come up
to see us again at Minnehaha when we
broke eamp and went back.
And so we saw him mounted, finally,
on old Bleucher. and winding along the
rocky trail, Pete and his blacksnake
bringing up the rear.
Wo watched him until he reached
tho Pit's mouth, when he turned about
In his saddle, scanned the distant
mountainside and then disappeared.
"I wonder if ho found a good scien
tific excuse for the ghost," said Mr
Benton to father, as tho two men got
out their pipes.
"No!" father answered, laughing.
"And I guess that Is what's troubling
Then the t(WO sat down on the shady
side of tho tent and each man chuckled
