THE DAILY FREE PRESS J T\rTT\ <vT ® \}±±$?'-ok VIQTOD ''""DonaldI" 'she murmured. "I - thought—I thought you were dead, ^Where.are we?" "i don't know," he answered, in ab; solute bewilderment, v At that moment he heard the mel- , •' gonglike sound that they had aboard the F55. And slowly, as if la answer to the «U1, the Jellylike medium that surrounded them began to drift away, to h« hung up, as If It were a curtain. 'jind before their astonished gaze there -evolved • £he strangest • stage setting that could ever have been conceived, First there came into view the submarine, occupying, as It were, the center of this stage, her bow sunk In the ooze, her stern sUU lower. They had been lying within a hundred paces of her. Next appeared the sloping edges of the crater, seen, not through water but through cle'nr air, with a- border of .yellow crinoids, ceaselessly stirring, as though a breeze ruffled tliera. Then there began to be visible, in the flanks 'of the mountain, structures, apparently of hardened mud, 'taking the ?'Tia:?e of fantastic temples, with pil- 5,ara and doorways with low lintels, a nut-merged city, of cliff dwellers, and yet each identical with its neighbors, so iliat they seemed to have been fashioned with the Siirne unchanging precision as the. cells of the bee. .And the whole crater swarmed with ' the sea-monsters, no longer Invisible, "but outlined in phosphorescent fire. And, standing in front of Donald and Ida; hig features clearly visible through the glass of his own diving mask;'surveying them with a cool, dispassionate gaze, was Ira MacBeard! : As they stared at him, he raised his hand and struck'something suspended from his neck, giving out the mellow sound which they had heard before. Immediately he disappearedjErom view In the midst of a swarm of the monsters/ which, surrounding Donald and the girl, began to push them toward tie cavern in the mountain side. ' The push was gradual, and apparently the result of some natural quality not known on land. There was no sense \>f muscular movement It seemed tq be momentum devoid of the accompanying fector of speed. Irresistibly, and yet quietly, the two were pushed toward the entrance In the flank. of the island. In vain Donald resisted. In vain he j tried to force a path toward the submarine, dashing his fists against the bodies of the monsters. He mnde not the : lenst impression upon those half- spherical forms. A sea-man under water nnd one in the air 'had very different powers of resistance. He might as well have fought an army of animated featherbeds. Slowly, without strain or attack, he felt himself being forced forward. He was held tightly on every side, except j .for the narrow gap-' that opened in front-of him. He was forced to devote himself to supporting Ida. On every side the globular, translucent, phosphorescent forma seemed to crowd In on him, leaving only a itoy way- in the direction of one of the mud-pillared entrances. Yet, even thus, Donald had the impression of some unconscious force that animated these monsters; It seemed, like the •routing expedition of a colony of red ants, - returning' with' Its - booty. He could J.sense no-conscious Impulse in •the sea monsters. • — His pace became accelerated, and *nddenly, swept off their feet, Donald find Ida. found themselvesi.within a litige cavern, faintly Illumined by pbos.- jihorescence, and roofed'with the same cloudy' substance that'they had seen upon the ocean bed without. The monsters left them: . The two stood. .there together, :sti)J in bewil- . derrnent. But they were not alone, for, with a. shout, Davies emerged from 'the dim recess, and ran toward them, followed by Clouts. Their cylinders and headgoar had been removed. The four stared' at one another in incredulous joy. "They nabbed us the moment we left the air-lock," cried Davies, grabbing the .lieutenant by the hand and forgetting his discipline for the first time. "And Clouts, too. They sort of edged us in here. We were afraid you were dead." "They gave us a little longer respite," answered Donald. "Davles, am I mad,or dreaming, or are we breathing under water?" "If you're dreaming, then Clouts - and I are too," said .the little middy. "Hello! There Clouts goes again! Pve tried, to keep him resigned, but ie gets frantic occasionally." With a sudden howl that seemed to rise from the depths of an outraged nature, Clouts, lowering his head, rushed like a battering ram into the doorway.- The watchers saw him recoil as if he-had butted a feather bed. He looked up, rubbed his hea<3 in perplexity, and then, retiring a "few paces,' repeated his experiment more ..furiously than before. Again -he was hurled back, as a ball ••rebounds from the cushion of a billiard 'table. The- monsters' bodies .blocked' the' entrance_as effectively as i£ they were of rubber. Slowly Sam Clouts withdrew, looking back with a puzzled expression. Meanwhile the three glanced about They were In a huge natural cave, In which the sea monsters had evidently been at work, for the interior was coated with mud, hardened In some peculiar manner to resist the water. And yet Donald had the same ,'.'L6ok!" Exclaimed Donald. Impression of a beehive. There was something of sameness everywhere, the same sense of automatism. ; It was quite bare, except at one end, : where arose u mud mound, decorated with senshells, and upon this was what looked like the upright skeleton of a small, mammal. "Look!" exclaimed Donald. "If came from—from behind the curtain!" said Davies in awe. "Donnld, the air was thicker . . . something keeps rolling buck . . . ?" They looked at each other, still unconvinced that they were a\vnke and nllve. Then they went toward the object at the end. , Sam ' Clouts,- who had preceded them, fell back with an exclamation of horror. "Yes, Clonts?" said Donald. "I beg your pardon, sir, but don't you see that it's meant to be a person, sir?"' He spoke the truth. The figure was a rough pile of bones, but high above them a' grinning human face, made of tie same plastered mud, looked down. It was the first- sign .of conscious process among the -monsters, and some devil craftsman had contrived to catch, .not so-much the form as the humanness .ot it. It was upon a larger scale, precisely such a figure as a child ,or a savage might'have made in its first efforts to reproduce the human, figure. There were even the dawnings of -art in the shape of whales' ear-bones, strung, braceletwise, across the breast. The mound beneath the figure consisted, of innumerable bones, a .sort of kitchen midden snch as Neolithic man left behind him as a testimony to his °yjj?i feasts^ <T» »e oranraad.)
