A sort of vertigo overpowered them, imd they only kept their feet by grap- pling the enerny- To Bansemer it-seemed that-all his life :he had been doing nothing but warding off and 'delivering blows.

With renewed zest Bansemer 'niiisbed with the bayo- net his own assailant and saw the man fall on top. of poor Adams and Relander. Suddenly there was an .exultant yell from the "enemy. Instinctively Banse- mer knew that one side of the square bad given: way. Quickly turning-be rushed to give his aid and just in time caught the arm of a native about to slash him with a huge knife. With the two gripped hands high in the air struggling for mastery the adversaries became separated a bit from ;the rest of the chaotic mass of'friend and foe, swaying out to one side of the plaza and under the walls of a :convent Bansemer was facing it. and just at the moment that he felt his strength giving way and could, see a grin of triumph-on the fiendish face there came a flash and a report, and his ad- versary fell at his feet Glancing up to ascertain who had fired the shot that bad saved bis life, he thought he a figure disappearing- from one of tlw windows. The incident acted as an inspiration. Gathering together a few men, he reached "the captain's side and communicated his plan. The opportu- nity was not to be lost Groce gave an order; Council repeated it Then in- terpreting a lull in the mur- derous struggle astheir' vantage, the men, with a cheer and dragging the field piece, broke 'for the building and by bayoneting ami clubbing the insur- gents out of the way accomplished the dash with! slight loss. The, soldiers hurled themselves against the stoutly barred door. It fell with a crash. Guards were stationed and all open- iugs and windows manned. Singularly enough, these defensive actions seem- ed at least temporarily unnecessary; for die watchers peering out of the win- dows reported that the dead alone oc- cupied the recent field of battle. Not a single Filipino was to be seen on the plaza. Every village has its convent or bar- rios. Generally speaking, their size corresponds in a Certain ratio with the population. But Hits particular build- ing was an oxcepilon. Diaily lighted. it gavt-.ibe impression of ranking In gize with many of those in far larger villages.

The men were startled, involuntarily boy cast a furtive glance In that direc- tion. Connell noticed it and, leaving the boy with Bansemer, hurried away and eoon was looking down into the face of a prostrate man, young, bnt aged, with emaciation. "You must not touch blnf!

"Plucky little he said half aloud. Again tne sick man groaned, tried rise from the blankets and speak, but only to fall back moaning: Connell cautioned him against exertion promised that no harm should come .to either of them.
