A v.idi pinch nearly surrounded the house. 1 had taken my first meal with Mr. Avery in his own house. It was my lir.-t i: p icii ranee in t fain cor as a .1 umar.

"Crickiiiore, you arc -playing a dar in.ogmc. 1 do m t know your plan, but whatever it is, there is ilau jer in it. I do not seek jour eoiitidoliees.

There was, however, x striking dilVerenco bet ween it and any iiuuint old city J had ever ictii. It was cleaner and more healthful. We walked through the Street o: the Invaders, and 11s wo walked wc talked. Kvidenees wero abundant that tho strange people among whom Mr. Avery hud lived so long fully merited his unstinted praiso as to their industry and relinouu-nt. Wo pa-sod tint 11 v houses that would I have rclleclc 1 credit upon an l-'.ngli.-li in American occupant, to scrupu lously clean am! neat wero they kept. Many of them boasted of .'aidcns, 1 md these were kept with ,'reat cure, j J'he houses, 11lmo.1t invariably, weri . af the low, wide portio-ied and pia:a i style that was so conducive to c -mi-i fort iu thai salubrious climate, where 1 most iif tho time mini lived tmt-of-: doors.

"Now, there is a house I like," 1 ' aid, pointing to one a little larger 1 than the others. "Jt is, ia its way, i imposing." "lha:, said Mr. Avery, "is the residence of the greatest living .'titear uoiio other than our friend (larii Saak. Ho is now at the mines. See those mountains beyond? There hi is al work, i'ut Lis wife must bo at home. She is never anywhere elise. Let us go in." Mr. Avery ascended the steps lead in,; to the wide orch, and without ceiemony opened the door. "Come, my good w ouiini," he called out iu .luiearese. "You have a guest.'' At til: t there was no answer. "Sho is prolubly iu tho -rui'del). Come, Anna line," he called out in ii lotiib r tone, "w j want to see join face." "Ah, tho Rood teacher I Is it you?' asked a penile voice. The woman c.uue in and bade us I t tcaied.

"New U us go nn," In this way wc went through Hal tieor, meeting and speaking i nly t dioso who were c ni-ii icre l by .Mr. Vveiy to be tho sui'cst cistodiuus o: ur seclcl. Wc passed out into the country and saw maiiv beautiful farms. They v, i-r-all wi ll 'eared for. The people ha every means to promote prospeuly. ;! tho iron grasp of the t rant could um bo shaken. The ground was tm ly t . give forth in ereat abundance. T!.. mountains hi I va-t I'ortuuea not y : iii; i o 1 or disco i cre l. (u our way back, w o stopped at the farm of t'so li.uk. iho big Jiima. saw us as we were entering the gate. Ho looked ugly, He w as c irryitig t wo pails of milk liotu tho cow -beds into the house. He sai l nothing to us. hut we followed him iusi ie. T apple bended that something was going wrong. In tho living-room of Oso-Dark's lioilso there sat a Chiiusei oilicer aie' tiulf-n-ilo7.ru soldiers. I'tawu up I iho porch wan a wagon, to whin., a heusu was hatuessed. la Ihu wncjon were several largo cms. 'J'he daily rounds wcic being made t i collect- tho milk innl honey of li e is! u I'd for the garriMiu a!

As he p:o i d us, lie drew his sword and wautotry pricked Mr. Avery's arm. 1 made a motion tor ward. J was going to knock ti lis- creiint down. Mr. Avery held mo back. "You would ruin all," he said. "!. not be impetuous, 1 am accustomed to such ns this." My own turn came, and I too felt the ollieer's courtesy. One of the soldiers kicked mo as ho passed. My blood fairly boiled within me. I wondered how the fellow would act if ho knew ae was kicking an American. "llow much longer shall this fii liire!" moaned Mr. Avery when the lends had depin led. "Not longer than !od Almighty withholds from mo the power to bring ;heso fellows ilowu," I replied, .'avagely. "That was a rascally act. Jiut wo shall have our day. I'ut I am thirsty. J suppose, Dsn -Hark, your milk is all gone to feed our dear friends ii (,luieiital. " "Not nil," replied the .Tuniar. "F isk having my cows ruined liy tn.t miking full, j'.ul 1 finish when the .iixuieii have gone. Come, 1 w ill show Oil.

"See, I divide with the governor," laid Oso llaik. il-s k.i.iii hud a small supply of die white, l ich li'iiid. 11 e handed mo l cupful, wiir.ii, which I drank. "J drink to tho downfall of Jleii-Ko-lli," I said. "May it be .men," aided Mr. Aver v. "After dark," I continued, turning '.ii tho J lunar, "1 want you and (hiru Sauk to o ilo t i tiio cave. I havo something to say to you." "Wo will he there," lie sai 1 simply. On our journey back to Mr. Avery's house wo passed a guard. Ho was 'mounted on a lino horse, and as ho rode along ho gazed ut us impudently. "1 wonder w hat that fellow w mild give toliud you out," said Mr. Avery. "It. would make him u general at least." "Is there danger of treae-herv?" I .sked. "Not ft bit," he' said, with emphasis. 'If tho 1-hnpiro of China Were tho jribe, no Juuiar would bo bought." "You will come to supper with me," said, when wo reached his house. "1 want to talk to yuil about soai" liiing." "Very, well, I am at your servic," ho replied. We passed into the cellar and then inln Iho underground passage. From this passage w o wont into the .-.iibterraneau .iver-bed a wide, smooth roadway to die sea. The sides oi this extinct ivaterwuy were very steep and high. "It is of this place I wi.-h o speak," said, pointing around mo into too .duck depths. "And of it -what?" asked the mi: jiouurj. "Wo must now begin active1 w.-rk. Wo must manufacture arms an I ii.i iilemeiits of war. I piop i-e to e"'.i!' ish workshops and forges here, and lave the work done iu tiio i-oorccy of :ho night. The smoke will bo a bud 'eature, but Hues cau be cut near tiio ;oast to carry it away." "It can bo done, but it is danger uus." "So is inertia, my frieul. If we risk nothing we gain nothing. We .ill I see what the .lumars think of it." "They will iigreo to u-ivibi" g you suggest, but I myself doubt the i-uo-?ess of vour plan." "I make no promises. I can do j nothing alone. If 1 have t.io united j nipport of thopoople 1 can iievonip'ish ! uueh." "Ah, you aie safe." sail Mi-ij rnold. when wc entered that portion of the euvo whore she had her abode. I "I hive been imagining all sorts of evil things. I am glad your lirst a 1- ' venture brought no liana to yi u." "It has bi ought me mine of an appetite than anything else." 1 rai l. "Has tho good II. mi. aim. iu brought us of Mr. Avery's bounty "Yes, jood .-oul that sh.! is. Sho has been hero two or tiiteo limes to lay to tell me tuiil sho had received word from some passing woman that Mr. Avery was scon at this or that place. Of course, I know that if ho was safe you were also. Here is our supper ready. ILiukiiiiuun is u master huiid. Sho loves to make me feel omfortable and. if possible, happy, md her own soul is bowed down with ;ricf. It would bo a great day for llaukuiiiiuu if the lndepeudi-nco ot i'uluiooeh were restored." "t hat is a long timo lionee," said Mr. Avery. I did not reply to this. The old man ,vas the victim of tho luck of eou i donee, that ha I held tho J Ulnars dow n or twenty years. After supper, Oso -Hark, true to his iroiiu.-o and habit, appeared iu tho uve with ( iaru Sauk.
