Hli Kraut ma naked where thorns had tried -to itar Urn; Ua beard, own W» hair, ·en nuttted and ntikempt, and the nod ef uanr traite laV caked upon hta fATBunta, Iramb with amazement, blind with tears, Norine found herself starlns np- ward into his face, and heard him sayIng: "I told you I wonld bring her home." The next Instant she lay upon his breast and sobs of joy were tearing at her. The story of Rosa's rescue came slowly and in fragments, for the news of Ollelllr'a retarn caused a sensation. Hl3 recital was Interrupted many time*. "As' a matter of fact, our getaway was ridlcalonsly ansy." he said, "for we had lock at erery torn--regular Irish lock. I made Morfn Independent , for life, but it wasn't the money. It was Jacket who Induced him to bring us clear to Turiguano, He landed us one niffht, this side of the Moron troche. Since then we've Traded eswamps to our armpits, we've fought the Jungle and chewed bark--but we're here." Johnnie heaved a deep sigh of relief. "Wh»r» old you get the. money to hire schooners and corrupt captains?" Branch Inquired. O'Reilly hesitated; ha lowered his voice to a whisper. : "We found the Varona treasure." Itforine uttered a cry. "Not Dou Bs- tebcn'g treamre?" It Waa O'Rcillyl "Exactly. It was in the well where young Estcbnn told us it was." Johnnie produced frora.hts pocket a handful of coins. Branch's eyes bulged, he touched a" cold piece respectfully, weighed it cnre- fulljr, then pressed It to his lips. He rubbed It against his cheeks anil in his Imlr: he placed it between his teeth and bit It. "It's real!" he cried. "Now let me look at the Jewels," "Rosa nun them. She's wearing them on her back. Hunched backs are lucky, you know; hers is worth n fortune." "Why, this beats the 'Arabian Nights!'" Norine gasped. "It bents--" Branch paused, then wagged his head tvarnlngly at the firl. "I don't believe a word of It and you mustn't." Then Johnnie told the story. "When he had finished there wns a long mo-! merit of silence. Then Norine qua- 1 vered tremulously: "That boy! T|iat blessed boy I" ! "It's all too weirdly improbable," O'nclily smiled, "but osl;' Bosa j or Jacket--thft boy is bursting to tell some one. !He nearly died because he couldn't brag about Hi to Cuptain Morin, and there won't be any holding him now. I'm nfrnld he'll tip oil the aews about that treasure in spite of all my warnings. Those jewels are a temptation; I won't rest easy until they're safely locked up in some good vault. Now then, I've told you every- i thing, but I'm dying for news. Toll me | about yourselves, about Bstebnn. I ei- pccted to nnd him well. What alls him?" "Oh. Johnnie!" Norine began. "He's very ill. He isn't getting well. Help me, Jounoie! Help me to get him home--" "Of course I will. Well take him and Hosa away where they can forget Cuba and nil Hie misery it has caused them. We'll mnke him -well--don't worry." O'Upilly saw little of his sweetheart that day, for Norine promptly bore- the plrl off to her oisn quarters and there attended to her needs, the most press- Ing of which was clothing. While O'Reilly wns similarly engager! in making himself presentable, j I he and Branch talked earnestly, with the result that they repaired later to General Gome?:. O'Reilly concluded by saying: "I've done what I came to do, sir, but Hiss Vnronn is badly shaken by all she has been through. She's very nervous and far from well. EFtebau, too. Isn't recovering."'
