I wenttto Jacqueline ami-took iny
<eat upon the «'nrtb bag barricade,; : I;
had rny revolver In my hand, but It
was not loaded. I threw tie carv
(ridges upon the flAor. *
It seemed only a few minutes before
a voice halb*d me from the tumnel.
"Paul Hewlett," ^ald Lerpujc, "you
have made a' Rood" ftghty buf you are
jone for. I offer you terms."
"What terms?" I asked.
"The same as before. I pftfT afford1'
to let you go; for, though my instincts,
ry out loudly-for your death, i am a
Mildness man, and. I can suppress
'hem when It has to be done. In

"M. Lerapx," I answered, "I will say
something to you for your own sake,

not del«n to. suy to any other man.
She is as pure as the best .woman in
ihe. land.' I found her wandering In
(he street. I saved her from the as-
sault of your hired ruffians. I gave
up my own apartment, to her-and went
away. Do you believe jviiat I have
said to you?"
Be looked hard into my face.
"Yes," he said simply. "And it
makes all the difference in the world
"Pere Antoine will marry. you?'' 1
"Yes," he replied..
"And her fathartj*
"Is safe in the chateau, playing with
bis: wheel and amassing a fortune in
^'One more word," I continued.
"Mme. d'Eperhay 1s very ill. She was
Rtruck hy one of those bullets that
you fired through the door. Walt!" for
he had started. "I think that she will
live. The wound cannot have pierced
a vital part. But we must he very
gentle In moving her. You- had better
bring the sleigh here, :and- you awl T-
wiJl lift her into It. And then—I.shall
not see her again." ! •; , . ,

I went hark Ward the van-/ ''Hut
f could not bring myself to see Jacque-
I hftn r^ft^h'ed fhe' verge' of I lie cata-
ract and stood beRfflfi the little plat-'
form, looking down. I gazed In awe
at the great stream of water, sending
Its ceaseless current down Into the
troubled lake below.
And then I saw Lacroix. He was
peering after me from among the
rocks, and as I turned he was scut-
tling away Into the tunnel.
I followed him hotly; but he must
have known every Assure tn the cliff,
for he vanished before my eyes,'appar-
ently through the solid rock, and when
T reached the place of his disappear-
ance I could find no sign of any pas-
And at that moment I heard Le-
roux's voice balling me, and looked
round to see him emerge from the tun-
nel at my side. He was staring In be-
wilderment at the cataract.
"By Heaven, Hewlett, I don't know
Ahat possessed me to take the wroM
turn tonight," he swore. "I have come
through that tunnel a hundred tlmjn
and never missed the path before."
He swung round petulantly, and at
that moment a shadow glided out of
the darkness and stood In frpfit of him.
It was Pierre Caribou, lean, sinewy
and old. He blocked the path and
faced Leroux In silence.
Leroux looked at him, aud an onth
broke from his lips as he read the
other's purpose upon his face. Squar-
ing his mighty shoulders and clench-
ing bl$ flats, he leaped afc him head-
PleiTe 'stepped quietly iishte, nhd
Simon' mealed Ms full length within
the tunnel, . But, when he hud scrara\
bled to his feet with a bellowiag.chal-
lenge, Pierre was In front of him

The Indian still blocked the passage.,
'Your time come now, $lAtori.' 'Ailing
Ish now," he answered.
"You come here one, two year ago,"
Pierre continued. "You eat up home

The face that Simon turned on me
was, not In the least like his own. It
was that of a hopeless man who knows
that everything ho had prized Is lost.
He had never cowered before anyone
tn his life; I thhjk, ~bm he cowered
now before plerr^ Cfiribou.

lips, and he flung himself upon the In-

had experienced, aid (n an trustrtut tfce
two bienv were struggling at'the edge
of the platform.
They bent. and jswayed, and now.
Leroux was forcing Pierre's head and":
shoulders backward by the weight bf
l 's bull's body. But the Indian*:
sinews, toughened by years of toil to
steel, held fast; and just as LerotfX^
confident of victory, shifted his fe©t:
and tncllned forward. Pierre changed
his grasp and caught him by thir

started out. His great Chest *h en ve£?
and he tore impotently at his enemySt
atrong finger* that were shutting ant"

rocked and swayed; then, with a last;
convulsive effort. Leroux swung IMerrir
off ids feet, raised him high In the

projecting rock at the tunnel's mouflp

I saw the fafiti of the Cliff, quiver;
I saw. an .immense rock, hajf-way up,
leap 'into-the air and seeth to hartg
there; then the ground wafc upheaved
beneath my feet, and wltlj a ftugfittyl
roar the rocky walls swayed and fell
together. 1:1 ' '• 'i,9r-

Darkness Impenetrable *' about1' tile,
and a thick air that I breathed with
great gasps.tbat hardly brought relief
to my chok'ing throat. And "a voice
out of the darkness crying ceaselessly
in my ears:
"Help p|e I Help me I" .
I raised'myself and tried "to" struggle
to my feet. I fcfiind that I could move
my limbs freely, I tried to.rjse upon
my kpeesj but the roof struck my heqd.
I stretched my arms out, and I touched
the watt on either side of me.;
I must have been stunned by: the
concussion of the landslide. , By. a

I tried to find' the voice. I crawled
three feet toward It, and th,©, wall
stopped rpe. But the voice was there.
