I T wns of thn utmost importance that they should keep close to the ledge on leaving camp so that Stephanos should not see them. In dumb-show, she indicated this to the one who appeared to be leader. She nut the mare at a glow trot and the Serbians scurried after her. It took twenty minutes to reach the ambush. Aa she called a halt and Indicated the apot, the Serbian leader nodded approvingly. She stayed to see the two machine guns assembled and the riflemen disposing themselves and then left them. Ten minutes later she was watching the miniature battle through her field-glasses from a mound behind the shack. Alan's plan had been very simple. A« soon as the Serbians were placed in ambush, Abrmmovel and his men were to pretend to flee, in order to encourage Stephanos to rush the camp, In which movement he would necessarily run upon the machine gune of the first party of Serbians. "Abramovcl is doing his work too well," she told herself. "His men seem to be fmng even more than Stephanos'." In case shv should be under observation, she rode up to the shack as if to receive orders, then galloped to Abramovel. "Your men are firing too much'" she shouted. "Mr. Bren- naway says only one man in chrae la to fire now." "Toll Mr Brennaway the fire is taking effect. f've only got two wounded and 1 should think they've got forty " "Tell Mr Brennaway nothing 1" she bullied back. "Obey his orders, you damned little bandit--do as you're told. And bring me a man to hold my horse." She had tried to imitate Alan's intonation, and, whether she succeeded or not, Abramovel heard in her the voice of authority and hastened to obey. She dismounted and, crawling round a boulder, watched Stophano's men through the field glasses. She waited five minutes and thought she saw movements on the ridge. "Now, Abramovel!" she shouted. "It's time for you to bolt--and MT. Brennaway said I was to stay on the spot and see you do it properly. They mustn't see me leading yon I'm going to ride to the back of the mound and watt for you. If your men aren't there in five minutes I'm coming back for you." "All right, Mrs. Brennaway. It's quite all right. 1 understand the orders," he whined, Abramovel and his men, she admitted, did their work well. They broke from cover and ran wrth every appearance of panic to the other side of the mound, where they were wholly out of sight of the enemy. "That was well done, Abra- movel," said Shirley. "But remember not to argue next time you get an order, won't you?" "The Serbians are still firing," Abramovel told her respectfully. "Shall 1 send a man up to Mr. Brennaway to see if he wanta them to atop?" "I know he wants them to stop," ·aid Shirley. "I'll go and tell them myself." She rode back to the Serbians- who had made the efsf-ern flank of Abramovel's party and again shouted to: tham in French. "Me speak plenty EnRlishl" cried someone. "Goodr * a i d Shirley. "Tell your friends to stop firing. They are my husband's orders." In three minutes tlv 1 order had been obeyed and Shirley caw with a thrill of excitement that Stephanos' men were massing. She saw them mount and knew that they were about to charge the camp. She waited until they had ridden from the ridge and were out of sight of the camp, then : "Tell your men to follow me!" she ordered. The Serbians who nn- ·what had happened. Abramovel was at her sidf, laughing, wringing his hands, and his men, too, were showing excitoment, dancing, making a queer sound through thoir teeth--"t-t-z-y.-z-z-z!" Then Shirley understood that not n single man had broken through the deadly machine g-un fire of the Serbians. "Stephanos has run away," said Abramovel. "What did you say about that ambush, Mrs. Bren- naway? Ill go and see the Boss. There's nothing more to do here." "Gome with me and see the am- buah," said Shirley quickly, and added: "Mr. Brennaway is with the Serbians, I think. I saw him cross over while you were behind the mound. Get a horse if you would like to come." Ten minute* later the urn* watching the miniature battle through her field-gla»*e». derstood the manoeuvre required no urging, but ran behind the mare to strengthen the machine gun party at the entrant e of the camp. Shirley galloped back to Abru- movel'i men and brought them from the mound to their former position. They were in reserve in ca*« any of the enemy shc-'jld pass the Serbians. Thers was a sickening wait of * couple of minutes and then, for the first, time in har life, Shirley heard the thudding ratUe of machine guns. She nerved herself to watch the Serbians through her glasses. She could see the gun teams working and the riflemen firing but she could not see the enemy. The fire lasted for less than a full minute, and than ceased. The Serbians relaxed their position and one of the men who had been operating the guns lit a cigarette. Shirley could not understand Not until she was quite sure that the dangei was wholly past would Shirley allow Abramovel to guess how it was with his leader. Fortunately Abramovel regarded the offar to see the ambush as a privilege, sent a man for his horse and was soon trotting beside her. As they neared the ambush they again heard the machine guns and stopped. When the. firing and ceased thoy rode on. "I would be very frlad if you would * ask them what has happened, Abramovel," said Shirley. "I don't apeak Serbian." They turned a bend and came upon the Serbians. Abramovel began talking to them and they answered hun volubly. Abramovcil was laughing raucously. _ Thp conversation seemed interminable. "Well, Abramovel?" rapped out Shirley.
