A long, wet (stretch of shell-strewn sand curving below high, sandy bluff*, down whose abrupt face a zigzag pathway descended from the plains above. I took no trouble lo dismount. Cheveignac climbed like a cat. and so I kept his back as best I could during the descent. I “ I say, Half, you’ll go over his head i if you ke<p un in that fashion,*’ said 11 err ics from the bluff. “ Not I."

Hospitality was the prevailing virtue of his class. |    “ Danger,” answered Nixon, signifi- j cantiy. “ Pooh, man ! Do we look as if we ; feared danger ? Give us some bacon and potatoes, and we’ll face any reason-: able danger that any man may, and live Supper, at least, if not shelter.” “ Jest as you say,” said Nixon, indifferently. “ Ou’y remember I’ve warned you,” and he led the way at a dog-trot along the beach. The bacon and potatoes were furthcoming, and disappeared in a marvelous fashion before our savage onset While our host attended to our horses, we found leisure to look about us. The cabin was an unusually roomy one ; at least 18x20. The usual accouterments of a hunter and fisherman were placed about. There was evidence of a woman’s presence aud taste, but we had seen no woman. A kind of uncomfortable stillness reigned, broken only by the ceaseless roll of the surf. A single ray of light broadened and brightened through the one window ; it was the uioon rising. We conversed in whispers, wondering what danger menaced, and undecided whether to stay or resume our journey. “ Let’s go,” said Herries. uneasily,at last; “ I don’t like the danger that strikes one in the dark. Let’s go on to Ilovey’s, it’s only five miles further down the coast, and the Calsaba fellow said it was all plain traveling.” Of a sudden, with no sound in the soft. sand, a black, bridled head and a brown and black Muse appeared before the half open dour. With a haud on each, Nixon stood between them. We stared. 0*p at ad the beach; sh o came faintly to our tars. “ The go ct Lord keep the n that cloud half an I r/r more, minute too so-m,” said Nixon, turned the cliff in a wiJ<j sw swept shoreward with the tide.
