And l>olh Hollimon and Hades Jones wore away, Dob knew. Bob hastened back lo the camp tents and called Honey Bee. , " Wc will go alone," he tolc) her. Miss Lane is oft somewhere If you're right,'there'll be plenty of time for all of us lo see it." This perhaps was a stroke ol luck ror Dr. Robert Wilson Barry, even though ho never realized it. Mis first thouglH to take Mary Melissa with them had so hurt and infuriated the Indian girl lhat sho might liavc none anything. She might have frozen up, in stolid Indian fashion, and never revealed any secret she^ltuew about Defiance Castle. But the red maiden was so infatuated, so thoroughly smitten by t«e unconscious charm of her employer, that she forgave him when he couldn't find Melissa. After all she would go up with him alone! I am rcaciy, Bawb," she said simply. He made her climb the ladders ahead of him. He held her arm frequently, showing her the gal- JanV courtesy which, any refined white American man would sho.w nny woman. But they were courtesies which no one had ever shown Honey Bee. Bob's manner caused her whole being to tingle. He steadied the ladders at the bollom, while she climbed up. Then he would quickly follow and hold the next ladder. She climbed nimbly. They reached !)x> rock- lip of the great cliff mouth in very fcw minutes. • "Now!" breathed Bob, slill excited "Where, Honey Bee?" She smiled and led him through a low door of the castle,' through two dim rooms into a larger This latter must have been a elan leader's or chieftain's place. She pointed low on a wall. gCRAPED there was the design of two rectangles, or "Ion"," >vith other odd mark- *Mgs, and with a long' triangle around il all. The triangle pointed 'This points, 1 lliink, is tu,* lop of big crscks in the? back wad,' said Honey Bee. "gack in tliee rock, if has been fllied up But thee door will be there." They hastened out to look, She pointed to a sort of natural triangle, head, high or more, jii the strata of the cliff rock'itself. Sure enough, Bob perceived, the rock within the triangio was irregular, not a part of the natural deposit. This had been a fault in the side of the mountain, a naturaj if small extension of the cave, anc il Had been filled in, probably 'by man. • Bob began working feverishly. Ho had carried his sh,ort-haadled miners pick strapped to his belt, and they had left more tools up here the day before. .He swung at the rock in the triangle, a heavy blow w;ith the pick point. Nothing happened. He swung at the rock again and again, eventually loosening one rock as big as his head. He removed it, but others were behind.. He slaved, like a rnad man, sweating and panting, for nearly an hour, while Honey B«c looked on. Then all at once his pick point drove through, and; black spncc greeted him beyond. "Ee-yow!" ho shrieked. "We've got it, Honey Bee! Got something at any rale." Half an hour later the hole was big enough for them to crawl through. He led the way and—as unconsciously as he would'extend his hand for that of a little child —he caught Honey Bee's fingers and escorted, her inside the dungeon-like ' place'. She said nothing. "I'm ci;a?y," he. suddenly announced. "In the 'excitement below I forgot to bring a flashlight. But I have a few matches." TIE struck them, one at a time surveying the dark inner room as best he could. It appeared at first to be a tunnel mouth. Then a weird object on a rock ledge caught his attention. 'Unh-unh!" he grunted, in disappointment, inspecting the find. "Aw-aw, Honey Bee, I'm afraid this place isn't what we hoped it was. Look here." She went over to him. There before; them was the prone body of, a hvman beingy in a wait niche, shrunken and. apparently petrified with drouth and, time, but man body nevertheless. . , • . •' "Honey Bee, I'm afraid we have just opened a tomb. Think.for, a moment—this is. pn tile southwest corner of the. main cave;/ TKc I mountain, behind here is solid, for over, a mile, r^aybe tivo miles. See? U. couldn't b,e a stairway, or exit. I might have reasoned thai put myself, before coming'. I "get excited too easUyl" ' He led the way tiack out of: the darkness, and then, he saw Honey Bee's face. It was a study in disappointment. Instantly Bob was contrite. He had injured her feelings, when s^e ha^ tried loyally, to aid the expedition. He put his arm. around her shoulders s^d patted her, The Invars *re a, sensitive people, tor Wl theiv stoUdity, he Wd himself. 1 I'm sorry, Honey Bee.. J didfl't mean to appear ungrateful. ' Thte is important a^ a tomb, even 'it u isn't an entrance. You are swell, really. You've helped more th^.n anyone else so far. Don't think I won't remember it" " « * « JJE moved aw^y from her, tfio * better to survey the wq)led triangle through which he had dug n hole. Heavy s.tones had been fitted together there with remarkable skill, with no morta.r but by carc-ftS chimXing and placing, It made a strong wall, and a deceptive one. Virtually all of the ancients, Bob knew, liked to keep their dead as near as possible to them, often in ihe very walls oi-,flooi> of the home itself. In such a place as this cliff dwelling, maybe they, had just set aside this anteroom as a tomb..It would surely bear careful investigation. ' . .-' "Don't feel disappointed, H,pney 3ee," he begged, again! "it's" very importaAil,. really. 'Vfe'li come back and look Srrto it thoroughly." He walked again to. the hole ' ic had cut, and leaned for a mo-'' ment on the rock there, staring, nto the deep darkness, speculal- ing as to the best melljod "of procedure. "Sa-a-a-ay!" he suddenly ex. claimed. He leaned inward, sniffing. Ho turned his head tliis way and that Quickly he struck a match and leid the flame there in the operr- ng. It flickered* and leaned outward. The smoke twisted toward * he main castle masonry, and dis-. appeared outside- "Ch-ristmas!" Bob was excited again, tike Ihe boy he was. There's a draft here, a heavy pull of air, Honey Bee. Maybe s'is an entrance tunnel-after all!" , .. , • . He turned to the girl, his face inining with elation.
