It still lacked a full hour of noon when we got our preparations made and were ready to stand a siege. Then we waited, and waited some more ; and after a while I began to grin. What if we had stampeded ourselves needlessly? After all, the men we had seen in the deep gulch might really have been tramps, and not a Bullerton army. Would the mining engineer unprincipled as he doubtless was, go to the length of trying to dispossess us by force? The more I thought of it, the more unlikely it seemed. "I guess maybe we were scared of h It up, r somethin' !"

"I might even concede T a shadow, "Bullerton has had time enough to bring up his army, if he has one." "I ain'f countin much on his backin' down," was the drawling rejoinder. "Ye see, I know Charley Bullerton of old; keen knowin' him ever since he first blasted into the miniii' game. That was o;er in the Sagauche. He's cuss, but he's a stayer.

Still, as time passed and nothing happened, It hooked less and less likely that we were going to have to fight for our holding ground. I don't know to this good day what made Bullerton so slow in bringing up his army, but It was high noon, and Daddy and I were eating a cold luncheon, with the shaft-housdoor-sil- l for a seat, when we saw the army coming. It was a straggling gang of perhaps a dozen men ; we couldn't count them accurately because the road on the bench wound in and out among the trees. They came up within easy rifle shot and pitched their camp, if. you could call it that, in a little glade. At that distance we could see that they were armed, but, of course, we couldn't tell what kind of guns they had. After they had taken possession of 'the small open space, two of them set to work to build a cooking fire.

Instead, he stood up on th6 door-sil- l and shook his fist at Bullerton. "I been lookin' for you and your kind of a crowd for a year back, Charley Bullerton, and drawin' pay. for doin' it!" he shrilled. "Stannie, nere, mi.xs ii juu wain uus mine ou can come and take It, and, by I say them same Identical words !" "All right," said Bullerton again. "But it's only fair to say that we outnumber you six to one, and we've got the law, and a few deputy sheriffs, on our sider You two haven't as much show as a cat in hell without claws, and when the circus is over, you'll both go to jail, if there's enough left of you to stand the trip." Then, as he was turning 'to go he flipped the deed into the air so that it fell at our feet. "You may have that," he sneered. "We'd like nothing better than to have yoti produce it in court." , It didn't seem just fitting to let him have the last word, so I pitched a small ultimatum of my own after him as he herded Ids two scoundrelly looking "witnesses" into the downward road. "One thing more, Bullerton," I called out. "Your flag of truce holds only until you get back to your army. If you or any of your men are in sight of de gum-niie- s, are at the present moment I shall quite possibly be one of the dead ones, but before I go out I shall do my best to make you another." "All right," he snapped back; "you're speaking for yourself, and that's your privilege. But how about you, Twombly? This is no quarrel of yours. Suppos.e you go over yonder to your cabin and stay out of the fight. Nobody, wants to hurt you."

When Elijah was last seen by Ahab, he announced that rain would only be given by his word (17:1). In connection with the Prophet's appearing before the king, rain was "promised. 1. xVhab's question "Art thou he thnt troubleth Israel?" (v. 17). Ahab's aim was to intimidate Elijah to awe hirn into submission. 2. Elijah's answer (v. 18). He denied the charge and boldly declared that the calamity which had befallen the nation was caused by the Idolatry of Ahab and his family. II. Elijah's Challenge (vv. 1. The people assembled (vv. 19, 20). The king convened the people at the urgent request of Elijah. 2. Elijah's ringing call to decision (vv. (1) The question asked Who Is your God, Baal or the Lord? (v. 21). Many of the people had not wholly forsaken God. They attempted Jo worship both God and Baal. Many today are halting between two opinions; they are halting between self and God sin and holiness mammon and God. But the question must be settled sooner or later. In fact, the decision is being made every day. (2) The silence of the peopler(v. 21). Tlds may have been because of fear of the king or ignorance, for many were of the opinion" that to be religious was the only thing necessary, irrespective of the being worshiped. (3) The method of decision (vv. Two sacrifices were to be provided, one to be offered to Baal, the other to God. The god who answered by fire was to be the God. The people consented that this was a fair test. III. The Test Applied (vv. 1. The offering by the prophets of Baal (vv. Elijah gave a fair test, even placed the advantage on the other side. He gave the prophets of Baal the first opportunity to prove to the people as to whether Baal was a real god. Elijah taunted them, and they more earnestly cried to Baal, but no answer came. 2. The offering by Elijah (vv. (1) The people invited near (v. 30). His object was for them to see the entire proceedings in order to fully grasp the genuineness of the test.

Elijah took twelve stones, representing the united nation. God Is one, and His people Is one. (3) The offering on the altar (vv. After the bullock was in place, he had four barrels of water three times emptied upon the sacrifices and the wood so as to fill the trench about the altar. So sure was Elijah that God's" power was sufficient, that he heaped difficulty upon difficulty. (4) Elijah's prayer (vv. (a) It was based upon covenants (v. 88). The foundation upon which all real prayer rests Is covenant relationship, (b) Its object was God's exaltation (v. 36). Elijah was jealous for God's glory his supreme desire was to honor and magnify the Lord. The only thing that he asked for himself was to be known as God's servant, (c) It was for the salvation of the people (v. 37). His heart yearned after Israel. He was most desirous that they should come to know God." (5) The result (vv. 38, 39). (a) The fire of the Lord fell and consumed not only the sacrifice, but the wood, stones and dust, even licking up tbe water in the trench, (b) The people fell on their faces and confessed that the Lord was the God. 33-35- native of looking for a job or, another kind of quest, try and locate a mysterious legacy left him by an eccentric grandfather. He does not know the character of the property, but the grandfather's directions say that it is somewhere between the 105th and 110th degrees of longitude west from Greenwich, and the 35th and 40th degrees north latitude. When he finds it he will be able to identify it by the presence of a girl with brown hair and blue eyes, a small mole on her left shoulder, a piebald horse and a dog "with a split face half black and half white. He is game and he starts to look for the combination. The troubles he has in locating it and the adventures and dangers through which he passes in securing possession of the property, also the romantic incidents in which the girl is a figure, make up this very fascinating narrative.

"What do I know about fuses?" I asked, grinning at him. Then I mounted the breastwork again and looked out, prepared to .see the entire landscape blown Into shreds. Aside from a few sheets of corrugated Iron torn from the roof of the adjacent ore shed, the landscape appeared to be fairly intact and still' with us. But down on the bench below, the lately kindled cooking fire was burning In solitary confinement The raiders, to a man, had disappeared.

Applied Hydraulics. "They've skipped," I reported to Daddy, as I climbed down from the earth sacks, "and that shows us the quality of the humanity stuff we have to deal with.

But if they ain't goin to fike it standin' up, we got to look out for Injin doin; the kind. Charley Bullerton ain't goin' to. quit none so easy." Nevertheless, for an hour or more, it looked as If the jumpers had quit In due time the cooking fire in the little glade burned out, and no one came to rekindle It Around and about the solemn silence of the mountain wilderness ringed us Jn, and It was hard to realize that he siege had not been abandoned though we knew well snake-ln-the-gras- 3 enough It hadn't We put in the time as best we could, tinkering up our defenses and trying to provide for all the contingencies. For one thing, Daddy found a big auger and used it to bore'loopholes at' various places through the wall, by means dC which we could command the approaches to the shaft-hous- e on two of the three exposed sides. Eastward-ly- , the blacksmith shop intervened between us and the boiler shed It was built as a lenn-tagainst that side of o S we were necessarily blind. The fourth side, as I have said, faced an abrupt cliff of the mountain, a rocky wall rl6lng to maybe twice the height of the buildings and almost overhanging them. At Its summit this cliff the shaft-hous- e and In that direction tapered off into a steep upward .slope, bare of timber; hence we were comparatively secure from attack In that quarter. As to provisioning we were not so badly off. Daddy Hiram, well used in his long experience as a prospector to figuring upon the longevity of "grubstakes," estimated that, what with the canned stuff, part of a sack of flour, and another of cornmeal, we could live for a week, though the cooking was going to ho rather Inconvenient. For a fire we should have to resort to the forpe in the blacksmith shop, and the shij was nothing but an shed, as I have described it, entirely Indefensible If the raiders should conclude to rush It. In the fulness of time the period of suspense came to an end, and we were given audible proof that Bullerton had finally made his "dispositions," as- - an army man would say. The announcement came In the forrn of a rifle bullet ripping through the roof of the shaft-hous- e as If the stout iron roofing had been so much paper. "The fun's said Daddy; and the words were hardly out of his mouth before another bullet came, this time from the opposite direction, and it, also, tore through the roof. "Got us surrounded," Daddy grimaced, when a third shot came from still another point of the compass; and within the uext fifteen minutes Buller-ton'- s demonstration was made complete. The, shots, fired one at a time, and at intervals of a minute or so, came from all three of the exposed sides of the building, and' the time elapsing between the ripping crashes on the roof and the crack of the guns told us that the marksmen were all well beyond the range of our Winchesters, even if we could have seen them which we couldn't Bullerton had evidently given his men orders to aim at the roof, for It was only a stray bullet now and then that came through the walls. After a time the purpose of the bombardment became obvious.- - Bullerton seemed to have absorbed the Idea that he could break our nerve wear us out. After the first fusillade the shots came at Intervals of maybe five minutes; just often enough to keep us on the strain ; and I don't mind admitting that the object was handsomely gained. I can't speak for Daddy Hiram or the dogr but at the end of the first hour I was little better than a hunch of raw " nerves. As all days must this wearisome first day came to an end at. last, and with the coming of dusk the bombardment stopped with our roof looking like a sieve. But after darkness had settled down we were made to feel In another way how acutely helpless we were. We could see nothing, hear nothing. Though Sve knew we were surrounded, the silence and solitude were "unbroken, and the strain was greater than that open-cracke- There are no night noises in file high altitudes, unless the wind happens to be blowing; no frogs or no Insects; and the silence was fairly deafening and maddening. Not wishing to strike a match to determine the exact end of my watch period, I stuck it out, meaning to give Daddy good measure. So I think it must have been somewhere around ten o'clock when the collie woke with "a start, jumped up, took the kinks out of his back with a little whining yawn, and trotted to the door the one opening toward the cabin across the dump headv Screwing an eye to one of Dadloopholes, I tried to dy's auger-borefathom the outer darkness, which was only a degree or so less Egyptian than Interior. that of the shaft-hous- e Though 1 could see nothing suspicious it was very evident that the dog could hear something. He had his nose to the crack under the .door and was growling. 1 quieted him and listened Something was going on, either Inside of the cabin or back of It; in the dead silence I could distinguish a low murmur of voices and, a moment later, a sound like that which would be made by the cautious opening of one of the sliding windows. While I still had my a jet of flame eye to the peep-holspurted from the dark bulk of the cabin, and simultaneously a bullet tore through the shaft-hous- e roof. The raiders had captured our outworks. The report and the bullet clatter aroused Daddy Hiram, and when I turned he was at my elbow. "Done crope up on us, have they, son?"- - he said in his usual unruffled manner. Then : "Maybe this Is just a sort o' false notion over here. S'pose you try and get a squint at things over on the blacksmith-shoside, Stannle." I stumbled across to the other door, taking the collie with me. I could see nothing In that direction,; less than nothing, since the lean-tshop building cut off what little light the stars gave. But the black darkness didn't hamper Barney's ears or his nose, and his eagerness to get back to the real battle front was a good proof that there was as yet nothing stirring on our side of things. Groping my way back to Daddy I found that he had one of the Winchesters and semed to be trying to fit a ramrod to the barrel. When I finally made out what he was doing I found that he had thrust a piece of heavy wire into the and was Impaling one of the dynamite cartridges on its projecting end. "LIT skyrocket," he chuckled; then, with quaint humor: "You stand by with a match, Stannle, and let's see what-all'- s goin' to happen. When I say the word, you stick your match to the fuse." Heavens ! maybe I didn't enjoy a delightful little spasm as I got a flashlight mental picture of that old man fumbling around with a lighted cartridge at the muzzle of Ills gun, trying to poke cartridge and through a hole in the door that couldn't tree-toads, sion we had a' glimpse of doors' and windows caving inward and a section roof leaping toward of the the spacious firmament On high.

Totting up the results of the shower-bat- h we'd had, a bread famine promised to be the worst of them. The few cans of beans, tomatoes and peaches the campers' standbys were unhurt, of course, and the muddled bacon could be washed with water drawn from the flooded shaft. But the flour In Its sack was merely a blob of paste and was beyond redemption and the cornmeal was the same. In view. of the results I .wondered If Bullerton hadn't shrewdly calculated upon washing our commissary out of existence when he planned his overgrown But maybe that was giving him credit for more ingenuity than he lawn-sprinkle- . d e p o sult was perfectly There were no more roof bombardments, and after we had remained on watch together for perhaps half an hour, Daddy sent me to the blankets for my forty winks ; did tills, and aftertrick on me. ward played a For, what with the previous night's broken rest, and the more or less exciting and strenuous day, I slept like a tired baby, and when I awoke the sun was shining In at the two high window holes at something more than an acute angle, and Daddy Hiram was making coffee and frying bacon and over a chip fire baking built on a piece of boiler iron we had turned down for hearth purposes the previous evening. The old" angel took my reproachful abuse for his unselfishness quite as he did .most things, and made his report of the night's doings. Up to midnight there had been nothing stirring; but after that there had been noises on the blacksmith shop side, and indications that the jumpers were at work on something In the boiler shed. Since this lay beyond our field of vision, we couldn't see what was going on, nor could we apply the dynamite remedy. Shortly after we had finished breakfast the work noises began again, but with the blanketing blacksmith shop In the way we couldn't see a thing and could only make wild guesses at what the raiders were up to. Along about the middle of the forenoon they fired up one or more of the hollers ; a wWff of wind coming along the side of the mountain blew the smoke over so that some of it drifted into the shaft-hous- e through the high windows.

We knew that the centrifugals were ; we had proved voracious steam-eater- s that when we were running them In the week-lontest I had a notion that maybe Bullerton had fired only one of the battery of three boilers to run his shower-batmachine, and the result speedily confirmed this assumption. In a few minutes the steam pressure had dropped to a point at which It would no longer drive any of the pumps, either ours or the one outside, and the window cataract stopped. "This will be only a breathing space," I prophesied, getting up to squeeze some of the superfluous water out of my clothes. "Bullerton will do one of two things: fire the other two boilers, or disconnect this steam pipe of ours." et really had. Through what remained of the afternoon the rifle firing continued, coming sometimes from one angle and somey times from another, but always from a safe distance and alwayi under cover of the surrounding forest.
