had probably gone back 2000 feet when fhe second explosion occurred and it is positively known that all are dead as there Is no possible chance for their escape After the first explosion miners from neighboring mines rushed to the ill fated mine In an effdrt to save their comrades On account of gas It was considered unsafe toenter the mine Eight old and experienced miners with safety lamps have been engaged to enter and close up some of theentries so that fresh air can be forced into the mine The rescuers had gone about 2000 feet into the mine when the second explosion occurred or less than half the distance to where the miners had been working when the first explosion occurred Hundreds of people visited both mines from other mines but aside from the wrecked poker houses and the crowds of spectators the mines presented their usual appearance KjJIed Himself and Crother =Chicago March 17 Charles J Hllnka president of Hllnka Brothers cutstone contractors shot and killed his brother and

descendant of ReV Stephen Ashby who was one of the prominent actors in the tragedy with which this narra tive deals and is owner of a portion of the extensive pioneer homestead at Little Mount Ky The facts of the founding of Little Mount are as follows- Approxirnating j 1788 there came floating toward the Mississippi the Ohios waters a flatboat containing the Bap tist divine Stephen Ashby his family anda friend Near Louisville they were surprised by Indianladen canoes that shot out from the mouth of Har rods Creek thetfact seems the whites were unarmed with the eicfcption of one old flintlock rifle that hii4 been loadedfor years In cons uence they were defenceless vie the power of fiendish foes timst re towing the captured boat to shore the red men executed one of their established customs namely the Indian who first touched a captive was entitled to ownership of same This fact naturally occasioned a the helpless whites and the the onslaught chills ones ruSsfor nicknamed Chany of the children but had not yet numbered his one arid twenty years His affection was possessed by a Virginia maiden and most loathe was he to accompany his father to Kentucky asserting most resolutely that if need e death not capture should be his fate It was said he surpassed Asah of old in fleetness of foot By meanuofthis and general agility hej elude his pursuers but finally in sprin ng from the boat to the shore spiercedjinby his mother Three arrows were shot into his breast while prone upon the earth followipgwhichan Indian drew a hunting knife and by two deep slashes made

Aunt McFall possessed some knowledge of the In dian habits While in camp she urged Stephen Ashby to escape Saying You and I are to be murdered r my age has sealed my doom but your escape is possible From observation she earned the savages were preparing for a long march and in making moccasins they had provided for the number of encamped persons less two Later the redskins directed the min ister to prepare a lot of pack saddlesI These he purposely cut too they mistaking his seeming content gave reinstructions and again sent him forth to the woods In vain did he in sist upon the return to camp of his sec ond son Beeda whom he had informed of his intended venture The boy con tinued to follow until finding the horses they mounted and plunged into the river The horse ridden by the father to swim was abandoned steedjTheydragged the exhausted father to the shore whence they watched the In diansinvestigating and seemingly trying to solve the problem of wet horses and invisible captives Evidently they supposed them drowned and returning tocamp they exhibited toMrs Ashby their stained hands by which and gesj tuses they sought to impress her with the belief that they had slain Her bus

later Mrs Ashby a small woman defiantly shook her fist in the face of the Indianlwoman threatening to give her a good whipping if the offense should be repeated The incident of the squaws quarreling occasioned hilarious laughter among the braves who witnessed the scene The demand wse- ver after complied with By Waynesj treaty Mrs Ashby and children were restored to her husband anson Beeda While awaiting their exchange Stephen Ashby watched from an elevation at Ft Vincennes a distant approaching group upon whose arrival his first act vas to draw a knife quickly step to the side of his wife

searched I carefully for traces of the miss ItIng Lascars He came to the that the bodies had been dragged from off the sun dried rocks Into the lagoon by some agency the na ture of which he could not even eonI jecturejThey were lying many feet above the sea level when he last saw them lit tIe more than half an hour earlier At that point the beach shelved rapidly He could look far Into the depths or the rapidly clearing water Nothing was visible there save several varie ties of small fish The Incident puzzled and annoyed him Still thinking about it heaatjdown on the highest rock and pulledj off his heavy boots to empty ter out He also divested himself of hIs stockings and spread them out to dryThe action reminded him of Missc I Deans necessities He hurried to a point whence he could call out to her And recommend her to dry some of her clothing during his absence He retired even more quickly fearing lest he should be seen Iris had already displayed to the sunlight a large por tion of her costume Without further delay he set aboutj a disagreeable but necessary From the pockets of the first officer and doctor he secured two revolvers and a supply of cartridges evidently Intended to settle any dispute which might have arisen between the ships officers and the native members of the crew He hoped the cartridges were uninjured but he could not test them at the moment for fear of alarming Miss Deane Both officers carried pocketboo and pencils In one of these containing dry leaves the sailor made a careful inventory of the money and other val nable effects he found upon the dead besides noting names and documents where possible Curiously enough the capitalist of this Island morgue was a t Lascar who In a belt around his waist hundrecl1oundsInchief all the money be collected and ranged pocketbooks letters and Jewelry In separate little heaps Then he stripped the men of their boots and outer clothing He could not teal how long the girl and he might be detained on the Island before help came and fresh garments were essential It Would be foolish sentimentality to trustto stores thrown ashore from the shipNevertheless when It became neces sary to search and disrobe the women he almost broke down For an instant he softened Gulping back his emo I Lions with a savage Imprecation he doggedly persevered At last he paus ed to consider what should be done with the bodies His first intent was to scoop a large hole in the sand with piece of timber but when he took Into consideration the magnitude of the bor Involved requiring many hours of hard work and a waste of precious time which might be of Infinite value to his helpless companion and himself he was forced to abandon the project lilt was not only Impracticable but dan gerous Again he had to set his teethj with grim resolution One by one bod lea were shot Into the lagoon from the little quay of rock He knew they would not be seen lignin f He arose and shook himself like a dog There was much to be done He gathered the clothes and other articles Into a heap and placed portions of shat tered pack jig cases near to mislead Iris While thus engaged he kicked up out of the sand a rusty creejse or Malay sword Tb4 presence of this Im plement startled him He examined sighttning his stockings and boots now thor oughlydry Are you ready now Miss Deane he sang out cheerily Ready I have been whiting for you Jenks chuckled quietly I must guard my tongue It betrays me he said to himself Iris joined him By some mysterious means she had effected great improve in her appearance Yet there 1were manifest gaps If only Ihad a needle and thread she began HIt that is ailsaid the sailor fum bUng In his pockets He produced a shabby little hussif containing a thim ble scissors needles and some skeins of unbleached thread Case and con tents were sodden or rusted with sal water but the girl fastened upon treasure with a sigh of deep content Now please she cried I want a telegraph office and a ship When reached the sands she caught sightof the pile of clothes and 4thebroken woodwork with the small heaps of valuables methodically arranged The harmless subterfuge did not deceive her She darted a quick look of gratitude at her companion How thoughtful he was After a fear ful glance around she was reassured thqugh she wondered what had become otthem = I see you have been busysne said nodding toward the clothes and boots Yes he replied simply Lucky find wasnt it Most fortunate When they are quite dry I will replenish my wardrobe What Is the first thing to be done Well Miss Deane I think our pro gramme Is In the first place to examine the articles thrown ashore and see if any of the cases contain food Secondly we should haul high and dry everything that may be of use to us lest the weather should break again azd the next tide sweep away the spoil Thirdly m sbpuld eat and rest and finally we must expire the island before the light falls I am convinced we are alone here It Is a small place at best and If any Chinamen were ashore they would have put In an ap pearance long since Do you think then that we may re- maIn here long It Is Impossible to form an opinion on that point Help may come in a On the other h-andYesuIt Is a wise thing Miss Deane to prepare for other contingencies Do you mean she said slowly that we may be Imprisoned here for weeks perhaps months If you cast your mind back a few hours you will perhaps admit that we very fortunate to be here at all She whisked round upon him Do not fence with my question Mr Jenks Answer me He bowed There was perceptible return of his stubborn cynicism when he spoke The facts are obvious Miss Deane The loss of the Sirdar will not be definitely known for many days It will be assumed that she has broken dOWpThe agents in Singapore will awaft cabled tidings of her where abouts She might have drifted any where in that typhoon Ultimately they will send out a vessel to search impelled to that course a little earlier by your fathers anxiety Pardon me I did not intend to pain you I am speaking my mind Go on sall Iris bravely The relief ship must search the en tire China sea The gale might have driven a disabled steamer north south east or west A typhoon travels In a whirling spiral you see and the direction of a drifting ship depends wholly upon the locality where she sustained damage The coasts of China Java Borneo and the Philippines nre not equipped with lighthouses on every headland and cordoned with telegraph wires There are river pirates and sav age races to be reckoned with Casting aside all other possibilities andassum Ingthat a prompt search Is made to the south of our course this part of the ocean is full of reefs and small Islands some inhabited permanently others visited occasionally by fishermen He was about to add something but check ed himself To sum up he continued hurriedly we may have to remain here for many days even months There Is always a chance of speedy help We must act however on the basis of detention for an Indefi lIteperlodlI am discussing appearances as they are A survey of the Island may change all these views In what way He turned andpolnted to the sum mit of the tree covered hill behind themFrom that point he said we may see other and larger Islands If so they will certainly be Inhabited I am surprised this one is not He ended abruptly They were los ing time Before Iris could join him he was already hauling a large undamaged case out of the water He laughed unmlrthfully Cham pagne he said4iA good brand too This man was certainly an enigma Iris wrinkled tier pretty forehead In the effort to place him inn fitting cate gory His words and accent were those of an educated gentleman yet his actions and manners were studious ly uncouth when he thought she was observing him The veneer of rough ness puzzled her That he was nat urally of refined temperament she knew quite well not alone by percep tion but by the plain evidence of his

good would they be Inquir ed Iris He softly denounced himself as a fool but he answered at once To shoot birds of course Miss Deane There are plenty here and many of them are edible They worked In

the fire Iris forgot her annoyance In her In threat A most appetizing smell filled the air They were having a picnic amidst delightful surroundings Yesterday at this thpe She almost yielded to a rush of sentiment but forced It back with Instant determination Tears were a poor resource unmindful of Gods goodness to herself and her companion Without the sailor what would have become of her even wereI she thrown ashore while still living She knew none of the expedients which seemed to be at his command Can I do nothing to help she ex claimed So contrite was her tone that Jenks was astonished Yes he said pointing to the dish cover If you polish the top of that with your sleeve It will serve as a plate Luncheon Is ready He neatly dished up two slices of ham on a couple of biscuits and hand ed them to her with the clasp knife- I can depend pn my fingers he ex plained It will not be the first time Have you led an adventurous life she asked by way of polite conversa tion No he growled ionly Thought so because you ap pear to know all sorts of dodges fo prolonging existencethings I never heard of- Broiled hamand biscuitsforin stance At another time Iris would have snapped at him for the retort Still humbly regretful for her previous at tItude she answered meekly Yes in this manner pf cooking them I mean But there are other Items methods pf lighting fires finding water knowing wnat fruits and other articles may be found on a desert Island such as plantains and cocoanuts and certain sorts pf birds When the meal was ended Jenks sprang lightly to his feet Rest and tiVVV- food had restored his faculties The girl thought dreamily as he stood ttere in his rough attire that she had never seen a finer man He was tall Sinewy and well formed In repose his face was pleasant If masterful Its somewhat sullen self contained ex acquiredShegetic she was consumed with sleepinessI He produced a revolver Doyou mind if I fire a shot to test these cartridges he Inquired The powder Is all right but the fulminate in the caps may be damaged She agreed promptly He pointed the weapon at a cluster of cocoanuts and there jwas a loud report Two nuts fell to the ground and the air was fill ed w th shrill screams and the flapping pf innumerable wings Iris was mo mentirily dismayed but her senses confirmed the sailors explanation 4Sea birds Can you use a revolver he asked My father taught me Rethinks every woman should know how to defend herself If need be Excellent Well Miss Deane you must try to sleep for a couple of hours I purpose examining the coast for some distance on each side Should you want me a shot will be the best sort of signal I am very tired she admitted But you lOb I am all right 1 feel restless that Is I mean I will not eable to sleep until night comes and before we climb the hill to survey our domain I want tp find better quarters than we now possess Perhaps were she less fatigued she would have caught the vague anxiety the note of distrust In his voice But the carpet of sand and leaves on which she lay was very seductive Her eyes closed She nestled Into a CQmforta ble position and slept The man moved the revolver put of harms way to a spot where she must see It Instantly pulled his souwester well over his eyes and walked off were flung ashore on the north west sideof the island Except for the cove formed by the coral reef with its mysterious palm tree growing ap parently in the midst of the waves the shape of the coast was roughly that of the concave side of a bow the two visible extremities being about three quarters of a mile apart He guessed by the way in which the sea raced past these points that the land did not extend beyond them Behind him it rose steeply to a considerable height 150 or 200 feet In the cen ter was the tallest hill which seemed to end abruptly toward the southwest On the northeast side It was connect ed with a rocky promontory by a ridge of easy grade The sailor turned to the southwest as offering the most likely direction for rapid survey He was not surprised td find that the hill terminated in a sheer wall of rock which stood out ominous and massive from the wealth of verdure clothing the remainder of the ridge Facing thHjpreclplce and separated from It by 08 strip ground notty feet abovr the sea level In the high est part was another rock built emi nence quite bare of trees blackened by the weather and scarred In a manner that attested the attacks of lightning The intervening belt was sparsely dotted with trees casuarinas poon and other woods he did not know resem bling ebony andcednrA number of stumps showed that the ax had been at work but not recently He passed Into the cleft and climbed a tree that offered easy access As he expected after rising a few feet from the ground his eyes encountered the sulemn blue line of the sea not half a mile distant He descended and commenced a sys ematic search Men had been here Was there a house Would he sudden ly encounter some hermit Malay or Chinaman At the foot of tie main cliff was a cluster of fruit bearing treesplan tains areca nuts and cocoa palms A couple of cinchonas caught his eye In one spot the undergrowth was rank and vividly green The cassava or tapioca plant reared Its high passion flower leaves above the grass and some sago palms thrust aloft their thick stemmed trunks Here Is a change of menu at any rate he communed Breaking a thick bran hoftapoon tree he whittled away the minor stems A strong stick was needful to explore that leafy fastness thoroughly A few cautious strides and vigorous whacks with the stick laid bare the cause of such prodigality In a soil cov ered with drifted sand and lumps of black and white speckled coral The trees and bushes Inclosed a well safe guarded In fact from being choked with sand during the first gale that blewDelighted with this discovery more precious than diamonds at the mor meatfor he doubted the advisability of existing on the water supply of the pitcher planthe knelt to peer into the excavation The well had been proper ly made Ten feet down he could see the reflection of his face Expert hands hud tapped the secret reservoir of the Island By stretching to the full ex tent of his arm he managed to plunge the stick Into the wager Ta ting the drops ho found that they were quite Bweet The sand and porous rock provided the best pf filter beds He rose well pleased and noted that on the opposite side the appearance of the shrubs and tufts of long grass Indicated the existence of a grown over path toward the cliff He followed It walking carelessly with eyes seeking the prospect beyond when something rattled and cracked beneath his feet Looking down he was horrified to find he was trampling on a skeleton Had a venomous snake coiled
