THE DAILY IREE PRESS VICTOR -ROUSSEAU* 1 •"He Bragged Hlmseli to nls feet again. Be became aware of a barrier between the monster and himself, which bad, •perhaps, saved them. He had stumbled •upon a spiny substance, a corallold growth that proved to be the outpost JBf a submarine forest It was a neld •«f crlnolds, the yellow lilies of the sea. Beautiful plants with branching «rms, they bent and swayed before Donald's eyes as they drew In the mi- ante forms of life oa which they sub- •fcted. They were.vegetable. octopods, carnivorous scavengers of the deep, ' which feasted ou the small fish that •they entangled In their waving . branches, and drew by the ciliary movements of the lining of their tentacles toward the central stomach. Donald saw one of the waving arms •weep down toward him. He tore at .It with his fingers. To his surprise, the brittle branch broke loose and settled slowly In the ooze, there to become the embryo of a plant. From every quarter the tentacles, as if apprized of their presence, came swooping slowly toward them. - Donald saw Ida grasped In their clinging clutch.. Madly he tore at the graceful, shrinking forms, until he hu,d cloven a wide swath before him, and tne arms, balked arid .baffled of their prey, withdrew. Donald turned and began skirting the crlnoid bed. The sea devil hafl disappeared. The water was like a thin, unstable jelly. As they made their way along- the bottom of the sea, the fleshy Uly arms reached out toward them like children's plucking fingers. At last the bed of crinolds ended. They trod on firmer ground. Their pace 'became accelerated. He had lost all. sense of time. He aid not know whether he had Journeyed one hour or three. He halted because there seemed nothing to do. Then he began to lead the way back between the two crinold beds, with the Intention of reaching the clear ground near the entrance to the cave. There, there might be a chance of picking up Davie.s and Clouts; or, at least, it might be possible from there to return to the submarine with Ida to replenish their oxygen reservoirs. These still seemed ample, but it was Impossible to determine how much oxygen remained. .They threaded the mazes of the •winding path between the beds, while from either side the. fleshy arms stretched out to grapple them. The touch of them was like fiery velvet. The suction of the branches made them cling, and Donald had to exercise all his might to break away. Sometimes their ankles became entangled and they would stumble. Always the arms iad formed a network above their heads before they could regain their feet, and these had to be broken. Under their feet the. ooze was whl te with the skeletons of small fish which the lilies had rejected after devouring the substance that covered them. At length the crlnoid- beds ended abruptly. They rested on the bottom, seating themselves side by side. Donald felt confident that he could find the submarine. But the delay was sweet, because the disappoln'ment , in store for them might prove" unbearable. Death or a little life would be the alternative, and the difference was hardly perceptible. Donald raised Ida's hand to his glass mask and pressed the fingers against It. i rcisuy.' Doriiira "cliaTea It, but waa I hardly able to distinguish; it in that ! Jellylike environment, which was j thickening perceptibly now. The .fingers were limp and cold. They were both numbed from the exposure—and Ida was dead. He would follow her, ther, • </- , Slowly and with deliberation he unfastened the copper cylinder from aboiitxhis body. At once the little electric light went put. it had grown so dim that only then did Donald remember that It had been burning. He unbuckled the headpiece . and took oft the mask of glass. He'flung It from him. A moment he held his breath as "he felt the cool water-jelly upon his face. Then, very resolutely, 1 he drew In his breath. .'_ CHAPTER X. Tho Cave of the Idol. A cry of amazement burst from his lips. He was breathing air—air at the bottom of the sea I N ' It was surcharged with oxygen. It invigorated him. He felt the thrill of renewed life in his body, he felt his shrunken arteries tingle as his heart pumped the new, richeued blood through them. It seemed unbelievable.. At first he thought that he had died, and that this was the soul's awakening. Then, with quick fingers, he unfastened Ida's body-piece and tore the mask from its fastenings. He heard ''her sigh. She sighed and stirred and sat up onjhe ocean bed. (T* be' ooattaned.)
