Anyhow, yon mustn't think of re. urnlng to Matanias," Norlne faltered; ier voice caoght unexpectedly and she turned her face away. CXBellly nodded shortly. "Ton're a sick man," he igreed. "There's no need for both of us to go." Esteban looked up "Then you--· "I leave at once. The Old Man has given me a commission to General Be- tanconrt, and ni be on my way In an hour. The moon Is young; I must cross tbe trocha before--" "That trocha'" Esteban was up on his elbow again. "Be careful there, O'Be!Hy. They keep a sharp lookout, and It's guarded with barbed wire. Be sure yon cut every strand. Yes, sad muffle yonr horse's hoofs, too, In cross- Ing the railroad track. That's how we were detected. Pablo's horse struck a rail, and they fired at the sound.

Esteban drew O'Reilly's.tense form down and embraced his friend, after the fashion of his people. "She has been waiting, too," he said, hnskily "We Varonas are good waiters, OTleO- ly.

The yearning that had pulsed In bis voice a moment before had stirred her deeply; It awoke a throb la her own bosom, for OTlellly was dear to ber. The paetflcos, accord Ing to all reporta, were dying like flies In the prison camps. Nortne wondered If there might not be a terrible heart che at the end of 0186111/8 quest? Her face was grave and worried when, hearing him speak to her, she turned o take his outstretched hand. r "Ton will be careful, won't yon?' she implored. "And youll be stout of heart, no matter what occurs?" He nodded. "If B a long way back icre to Cnbitas. You may not »ee or tear from me again " "I understand." She choked misery. "You mean you may not come back. Oh, Johnnie!" "Tut, tut 1 We O'BefllTs have more hres than a litter of cats. I mean I may not see you until the war, Ja over and we meet In ICew York. Weil, we're »eeu good pals, and--I'm glad you cam* to Cuba " His grasp upon her two bands was painful. | ·Too most go, I know, and I wouldn't try to keep yon. but--" Norlne faltered, then impulsively she drew him down and kissed him full upon tbe lips. "For Host'" she whispered. Her eyes were shining as she watched him pass swiftly out of sight. CHAPTER XVI. Th» Trocha. Of all the military measures employed by the Spaniards In their wars against Cuban independence, perhaps the most unique was the trocha-- trench or traverse. Martinez Campos during the Ten tears' war built the first trocba Just west of the Cnbltas mountains where* the waist of the Island Is narrowest Not until Weyler's time were the two methods of pacification, the trocha and the concentration camp, developed to their fnllest extent Although his trocbas hindered the free movement of Cuban 'troops and his prison camps decimated the peaceful population of several provinces, the Spanish cause gained little. Both trenches and prison camps became Spanish graveyards. At tbe time Johnnie O'Bellly set out for TIMiip*" the war--a war without battle, without victory, without defeat --bad settled Into a grim contest of endurance. In the cast, where the tnsur- rectos were practically supreme, there was food of a sort, but beyond the Ju- caro-Uoron trocha--the old one of Campos' building--tbe country was sick. Immediately west of It, In that district which the Cubans caned Lai Villas, the land lay dying, while the entire provinces of llatanzos, Eabana and Plnar del Rio were practically dead. These three were skeletons, picked bare of flesh by Weyler's beak. The Jucnro-Moron trocha bad been greatly strengthened since Campos' day It followed the line of tbe trans- Insular railway. Dotted at every quarter of a mile along the grade were little forts connected by telephone and telegraph lines Between these fcrtl- nas were sentry stations of logs or railroad ties. Eyes were keen, rifles were ready, challenges were sharp, and countersigns were quickly given on the Ju- caro-If onm trocha TO BE CONTINUED.
