and the "drip, drip" ofwato beyond

The nol-o ns of boring had ceased

had inadoaholo through with his knife;
nnd never before) did spirits comu so

"Hettertry nnd gel out now," whis

said n strange voice, which scorned hoi

from tho roof sweep coldly nnd slimlly
over my faeo; when, boforo tho next
wave could rnlso us, I thrust eagerly at

but In the fear and darkness, got her
across tho timnel,so that head and stern

though I waited llllthownvo receded be
foro I tried tho bottom, It was not to bo
touched ; so, shuddering and horror
stricken,!! waited tho coming wuvtymd
struck oll',swlmining with all my might.
It was only a minute's ta-k j hut when,
after twice trying, my feet touched tho
bottom, I was panting heavily, and so
nervous, that I bad to lean, tremblhi;
and shaking, again-t tho side. Hut I
had a tight hold of Hodson.who-o head
I managed to keen above water ; and
it was not until warned of my danger
by tho rising tide, and tho dilllculty I
found lu keeping my feet, that I again
cs-aved to press forward.
.lust then, something cold and wet
swept aero--; my face, and dashing out
my nrms to keep oil' somu monster of
the deep, my hands camo In contact
with a round body which heat iigalust
my brea-t, and lu my horror, as I dash

ment however, hu was swept up to mo ;
and once more clutching his collar, and
keeping his head above water, I wndod
-lowly along the tunnel, when again I
nearly lu-t my hold, for thu snmu wot
slimy body swept acro-s my face but
raising my hand, I only da-hod away
ono of thu Jong strands ol bladder-weed
which hung thickly from the cross tim
ber- of the roof.
It wa- no hard matter to bear my
companion along'.wlth me.for I had not
only to keep his head up, his body Hunt
ing along tho surface, but my foothold
was uncertain, for now the bottom was
slimy, and my feet sunk in tho oozo
deeper and deeper, for I was Hearing tho
gates through which tho fresh water
of tho marshes was let In j and though
thu water was now only to my middle,
I mado my way with dilllculty, for
thero was a perceptible current against

It not been for my excitement nml now
a horrid dread seemed to check the
very net, for nil nt oiico I heard a heavy
reverberating noiso, and Iho thought
struck inu that they weru opening tho
gates, ami in another instant tho fearful
rii-u of fresh water would come bearing
nil before it, oven our lives.
In' tho ngoiiy of tho moment, I uttered
n wild unearthly shriek, so fearful a
cry, that I shrank against the side after-
wards, nml clung to a blliny po-t, trem
bling to hear thu btrangu whispering
cehocs, as tho cry reverberated nlong
thu place, and mingled with tho hipping
rush of thu water, tho dripping from
thu roof, and u loud sound ns of u little
waterfall lu front.
Now camo ngalii thu shape, of some
thing round swimming up against me,
and ns it struck my side, I beat at It
savagely, though I smiled at my foolish

stopped, listening to tho heavy rushing
of water lu front, where thu dralnago
escaped, and washed heavily down,
deepening the tunnel at the foot of tho
doors; while in that hollow cavernous
place, growing smaller moment by mo
ment, the rushing sound wiis something
hideous. Danger lu front, for thu great
gates might at any tlmo boopencd; and
danger behind, whero tho tldo was
coining in ceaselessly, and deepening
thu wntcr around mo with Its regular
beating throb, mlnuto by minute.
Thoughts of tho past und present
seemed to surgo through my brain, so
that I grew bewildered, and had any
chanco of e-capo presented Itself, I could
not have seized It, though I could not
but tell myself that escape, wns Impos
sible. A few minute, ton, twenty,
thirty perhaps, and tho black darkness
seemed to bo grqwlng blacker.
" I must bo free," I muttered; and
dragging Hudson's handkerchief from
his neck, I bound it to my own, and
then making them fast beneath his
anus, felt among tho woodwork till I
could find a place whero 1 could pass
them through, so that I could secure
him from slipping down, or being swept
away by tho ebbing nml flowing of tho
I wns not long lu finding a place; but
then the handkerchiefs were not long
enough, and I hud to add ono from my
pocket; then I left thopoorfellowqulto
and half-hanging from one of the tim
bers. And now I waded about, search
ing for the mouth of tho alr-plpo, in
tho bopo of shouting up It for succor,
since I felt convinced that tho- tide
would elfectually fill tho tuimel, whllo
the very thought of tho gates being
opened half maddened me; and heed
less now of who might hear ine, so that
they brought succor, I hunted almlos-ly
about, a oiling and shrieking for aid.
It was a fearful struggle between rea
son and dread ; and forover dread kept
getting the upper hand ; now it was a
floating keg again and again making
mo dash away ; now ono of tho pack
ages burled In by the tide while tho
strango drippings and hollow whis per'
Ings were magnified into an infinity of
horrors. Every monster with which
imagination has peopled tho sen bccmod
to ho there to attack mo, strange serpent
or Hzard-liko beasts, slimy and scaled,
thronging along tho ceiling or up tho
sides, swimming around me, or burrow
ing through tho sand. Moro than once
I actually touched some swimming ob
Joet, but tho contact was momentary,
nnd tho stranger darted oil. Then rea
son would gain supremacy for awhilo
and trying to cool my throbbing brow
with tho water, I thought ,of my posi
tion, whispered a few prayers, and en
deavored to compose myself. Thero
was even now a doubt : tho tldo might
not rl-e high enough to cover mo; cer
tainly it was now nt my breast, and I
wns standing witli dilllculty in tho
shallowest placo I could pick. Tho next
moment, us tho waves receded, It would
fall to my waist ; but again It was up
to my chest, nnd in snitu of glomus of
hope, despair whispered truly that it
was now higher up my chest than be
fore. True; but ono wave In so many
always camo higher than the others,
Thd tldo might still be nt Its height, and
this bo that particular wave.
Down nguin nearly to my waist ; nnd
then up, up, up, nearly to my chin,
