"He is trusted by tha prittU, | bat I think be is a rogue. Still, he ! deee my bidding." "Try it, oh, try it, priestess, I be Meou yon!" I cried. She leaned toward ue, and her bosom throbbed with • convulsive struggle with some emotion. I mold aee that I had gained some advantage. I draw my ehair closer to hers, and taking her hand ia mine, caressed It "Think of it, Kanmai, if yoa had a •later whom yoa lored, and she was atolen away from yon an 1 waa to be sacrificed to a heathen deity, whom yoa knew did not exist—if her death waa to b4 the horrible death to which yoa would send my sister, woald yoa ■J not weep? Would yoar heart not be heavy? I lore my sister, Kanmai; she ia good and beantifnl. llelp me to •are her, and I will lore yoa." A startled expression, then a softer me, showed in the starry eyes. "1 hare never been lored. I hare aerer lored any one bnt Pale." I dare j draw the lovely haud nearer Be. I stooped aud kissed it. "Lore me, Kanmai," I said. "Lore ■iy sister. We will lore yog in return. Can yon not?" 2» •• A rioteut shudder shook h*r frame. A conrulsire sob broke from her. Bnt ahe left her hand in mine. Her tyei became suffused with tear*. She was ! not now a priestess. filio was an angel. 1 I was enthralled by her beauty. I wanted to snatch her to my breast anil j derour her with kisses, but the selfish- . Beas of the thought bade me forbear. Thero was time enough for this. She seemed struggling a ;ain with •ome difficult problem. "Ia it so hnrd, Kanmai, for one woman to grant life to another?" She flung my band from her. ■- j "You will not believe me," she oried. "Yon do not think I speak the truth when I tell yon I am po-ver leas to holp you. I swear to yon that if it lay in my power yon and your •iater should depart from here in peace to-day. And now, if r>n would take mo, I would go with you. lint what am Ito do? If 1 ain a priestess of Pele, I must do as Pele demands. j If lam only n woman, a toii sir, what can I do against t'ti high priests? Yet you "do not bciiere nie!" ' "Yos, Knumai, I be!ier» you," I ■aid soothingly, "bnt I am so over wrought with anxiety. Pardon mo if I wound you. 1 did not mean to be harsh." She flung hersotf on the rag at my f«et and clasped my knees. "Look at mo au l tell me yoa do not hold me responsible for your sister's fate. Tell oil If I ajn only a wom an, I havo a Woman's heart. Yet you would spurn me." I stoOpe l and lifted her to her fc»l. She was sobbing "Kaumai, I believe yon fully," I ■aid. "Whatever pomes, I beliere yon would help mo if you eonbl." A smile lit up the b.»antifnl counte nance and chased away the tears. We stood, sits with Iter face uplifted to mine, smiling at me. I, with one arm still embracing her, as 1 had lifted her from the floor. A wave of lore swept over me.

"Seize him aud take I.i a to the temples!" ahe cried. "Ho has dared invado tho sanctity of tho abode of your priestess. Take him hence, yet harm him not. I would have him strong and well to assist in tho sacri- ' floe that mast ba ma le to Pele." I was roughly seized ?ud dragged from fae place. They hustled mo into the and set a guard over me.

CHAPTER XXIV. Two days passed, during which I j •aw neither Winnie nor Kauinai. For I •ome reason—probably tie unnsual i excitomout was tho pr£vailiug caase— there was no regular worship with j Kanmai o:i the throne a« tU -.e ha I | been bsforo. liut there woro tu or] aaora high-priest* in the te nple all the time, going through a ridic ilous lot of wabbish. all to t'.io glory of Pele and exto.ling their ova wonie.iul vir-ues. In their songs or chania to their • goddess Winnie was freqiuatly men tioned. I was free, so far as tha limits of the temple, tha dining-cave an I the vol flana's crater ware concerned. I conld wander at will in. those places. Bat the door to my old dungeon had been looked, and the prieats carefully gnard ad against any chance of my getting into Winnie's prison again. Kanmai, ■o doubt, continued her visit*, hat 1 •said not gat near bar. I waa rigidly aialadsn from that part of tha system of oaves where lanmsi'a room was situated. I pasaed ths two days ia a greatly troabled state of mind. Tha sudden rovalaioa from hops to despair nearly drove me as insane as ths high-priesls. j The rambling of ths subterranean ' forces became louder. Now and then i the mountain wonld be shaken an 1 the j lake of lava wonld be stirred. Here and there a little apnrt of lava above the aurfaee gava warning of tha diead fnl scourge that was to come. I feared tha worat. If we remained ia the erater nntil the lava lake should 1 rise and overflow the present borders, we should be certainly dostroyed. I endeavored to atrike terror in the breast of the high-priests by tclliug them of the danger they were ip. "Do yon not know," I said to the leader, "if the volcano becomes active, the lava will overwhelm ns aud destroy us all?" - "Oh, yon prove that you are a false priest and an unbeliever," be returned. "You Co mo here as Lowai's successor and desecrate the temple of Pele by laying bands on herolioseu sacred one for the sacrifice. Then yon tear away a portion of tho wall aud aeek the presence of tho sacred one, where only Kan mai may go. Fleeing from tbeae you dare go into tho sacred chamber of Kaumai and rudely insnlt the priestess. You are lost. Pele is out raged, and her wrath demands ven geance. Kaumai is iucensed at your violence, aud after the sacrifice of the ►a-.-.-d one, you, too, may be aent to ! your death." j "But that won't save yon. Ton and i Kniimai mid all tho rest will be alain ' who.i tho eruption comes." "But it will not come. Even now we are preparing for the sacrifice. When we ofior the sacred one to Pele. s'io will Hlay the evil spirita under Kapatoli and still tho tumult. You are not a believer, so you must die." "ft most bo stopped!" I said almost frenzied, for I kuow the crisis was ap • proachiug. "My sister shall not be ruiirdere I by a gang of lunatics. I will oil down the wrath of the gor eminent on yon, and yoa will be put to death." ""Hut yon cannot call down any thin*. because you will be dead." "1 will rinit l'elo in Haleakala and seek her assistance. She will vent her wrath upon yon." "Not no. Pele knows well her faith-'® fal servants. She would not receiro -nor listen to yon." Just ti-'iii a still loader roar cam* from tho than any we had heard. The high -priest gave a startled look. ) "It is tiuic," ho said, and hurried away. Tao common priests, while no doubt as sincere in their dovotion to l'elo as the highs were not so firm in their faith as to Pe(e's power over volcanoes. One by one they began to depart. I could, I suppose, had I arrayed my self like thei^-—in fact, I was already mi garbed—aud fastened on my mask, j have made my escape by bribing Nimo lau, whoso cupidity I already know, liut I knew that I wonld not have time j t > get aid and return before the horrid plans of the lunatics would bo carried ont. Wi» lie was in imminent dan t; r. au l I resolved to remain until the last, aud see what I could do. Nimolau now appeared iu the temple and took liis meals with the common priests. Ho hung around idly, seeiu ' i-ig to keep away from mo and com pletely iguoring ine. He waa, not withstanding his lack of reverence for . IVle.ss suggested by Kaumai, evi dently a man of mark nud importance in the place, for ho was frequently in long, stealthy discussions with the leaders of the high-priests. And ouce I overheard one say to him: "Kauinai demands yotir presence." Nimolau at once departed in the di i.vliou of Kauinai'a room. I resolved to test Nimolau and aee if he could not be bribed to help me. Soon after the interview he had had with Kaumai, I saw him standing alone, gazing into the now bubbling ind spitting lake. He studiously tvoided me, so I went to him. "Ximolan," I said, "1 sin in great trouble. The sacred one who is to be sa-rificed iu this awful lake of m-dten lava is my sister, whom I lore, an I who is loved by frieuds high arid powerful iu the government at Hono lulu. It is awful to thiuk of an a fate for her. I came here as a priest , id,find and rescue her. I hare failed. Hoar I want you to help me. Yon do ! -lot believe in this stuff about Pele. I (mi rich. I will pay yon well if you save iny sister. Tho priests tell me | t!iat I, too, aui condemned to die. Now . if you will get my sister and me away ; from this hellish place I will m*keyo.i • th- richest of your race. You ahal' I want for nothing." j i(e turned his cumi'iij eyes on mi j in J rtjiiwd ioe well. He opened his lips partly as if W j speak. A high-priest came out of tho ten I pie and stood looking at ns. Nimolau raised his hand and atrnck me across the face, and, turning cj > his heel, walkod away to joia th# j priest. -r My last hope was gone. I waa too much disheartened and j sick to even resent tho insult. I i stoj.l rooted to the spot, watching his ! retreating figure. Then two more high prieata ap peared, and the fonr engaged iu aa animated disensaion. They beckoned for me to come lo them. "Come," one of thom said, "and see ths preparations for ths sacrifice." I followed them stoli lly. I was rapidly losing ths power ta think. , I wss dazed with misery. They lad me into Winnie's prison, Kanmai was thsrs, standing proudly and grandly alone, ©old, impassive, beantifnl. She was not iiks ths lovely Kanmai who had listened to ■>• but two days before and who besought me to trnst her. She was the inearnation of indifference, of crnel fanaticism.
