Privately, however"--the speaker eyed O'Reilly with a disconcerting/ expression--"I would like to warn you. You are a bright fellow, and you huve a way with you--there's no denying it. Under other conditions it would be a pleasure to know you better. It grieves me. therefore, to warn you that your further stay In Cuba will not be--pleas- ar.t, I almost regret that there is no conclusive evidence apainst you; It would so simplify matters, Come, now, riadn't yon better acknowledge that I have guessed your secret?" O'Keilly's perplexity was changing to dismay, for it seemed to him he was being played with; nevertheless, he shook his head. "I would only be deceiving you, rir." he said. General Antuna sighed.

They are. wretchedly unproficlent marksmen, and they haven't learned the danger of promiscuous rifle fire. They are forever shoo; Ing at things, merely to score a hit. Would you believe It?
