TOen we had entered tho compartment we
hid, seated ourselves upon a low bench be
neath the porthole.
t The bench was the only rurrtlture of the

.Suddenly I lobked toward Phaldor. She

fail. She was very beautiful then.
JAstaritly her whtto lids veiled her eyes,
and I thought I discovered a delicate flush
tinging her cheek, EWdently 3ho was em
barrassed at having been detected In the
act of staring at a lesser creature, 1
"Do you find tho study 'of the lower or-
li '"tereBtlna?" I asked, laughing.
She looked up again with a nervous but
relieved little laugh.
"Oh, very," she said. "Especially when
they have such excellent profiles."
It was my turn to flush, but I did not.
I felt that she was poking fun nl inc. nnd
I admired a brave heart that could look for
humor on tho road to death, and bo I
laughed with her.
"Do you know where wo aro going?" she
asked In a, low voice, fixing her gaze upon
'To solve the mystery of the eternal
hereafter, I Imagine," I replied.
"I am going to a worse fata than that,"
she said with a little shudder.
"What do yoU mean?"
"I can only guess," alio replied, ''filnco
no them damsel of all tho millions that
hao been stolen away by black pirates
during tho ages they havo raided our
domains has over returned to narrate her
oxpetloncoi among them. That they never
take a man prisoner lends strength to the
belief that tho fata o( the girls they steal
Is worse than death."
"Is It not a just rotrlbutlont" I could not
help but ask.
"What do you meant"
"Do not the therna themselves do like
wise with the poor crcatutos whd take tho
Voluntary pilgrimage dowri tho Illver of
Mystery? Was hot Thuvla for 18 years
a plaything and a slave? Is It less than
just thai ybU should suffer as you have
caused others to suffer?"
"7ou dd not understand," she replied.
"Wo thems are a holy race. It Is an
honor to a lesser creature to be a stavo
among us. Did we not occasionally tsnvo
a few of the lower ordbrs that flont down
an unknown river to an unknown end, all
would become the prey ot the plant men
and tho apes."
"But do you not by every means en
courage the ouporEtltton among these ot the
outside world?" I argued. "That Is the
wickedest of your deeds, Can you tell me
why you foster the cruel deception 7"
"All life on Barsoom," she Bald, "Is cre
ated solely for the support ot tho rrtco of
thcrns. How olso could wo llVo did the
outer world not furnish our labor and our
food? Think you that a them would de

"You are an unbeliever now," sho con
tinued Bcntly, "but should we bo fortunate
enough to escape the clutches of tho black
pirates nnd como again to the court of
Matal Shang, I think that we Bhall find nn
argument" to convince you ot the error of
your ways. And" she hesitated "perhaps
we shall find a way to keep you As as
ono of us."
Again hor eyes dropped to the floor nnd a
faint color suffused her cheek.
I could not understand her meaning, nor
did I for a long time. Dojah Thorls was
wont to say that In somo things I was a
verltablo simpleton, and I guess that she
"I fear that I would 111 requite your

Sho looked at me really horror-struck.
"No, no," sho cried, "you must not say
such terribly BacrlleglOus things t you must
not even think them. Should they ever
guess that you entertained such frightful
'thoughts, should we chance to regain tho
temples of the thcrn.1, they would mete oUl

they reverenced them As the abodes of tho
departed spirits ot their own dead,
At thts point tho door Ot oUr prison opened
to admit Xodar.
Ho smiled pleasantly at me, and when
ho smiled his expression was kindly any
thing but cruel or vindictive.
"Slhco you cannot escape Uhdcr any clr
cumstahces," ho said, "I cannot sco -tho
necessity for keeping yoU confined hclotf.
I will cht ybur bonds and you may como
bn dock. ToU wilt witness something very
Interesting, and as you never shall return
to tho outer world It will do no harm to
permit you to see It, YoU wilt Bee what no
other than the First Born and their slaves
know the existence of tho subterranean
entrance to the Holy Iand( to tho real
heaven of Bareoom.
"It will be An excellent lesson for this
daughter of tho them," he added, "for Bhe
shall see the Temple of Issus, ahd Issue,
perchance, shall embrace her."
Phaldor's head went high.
"What blasphemy Is this, dog of a pirate?"
Bha cried. "Issus would wipe out your
entlro breed- and you If you ever camo
within sight of her tcmplo."
"You have much to learn, them," roptlcd
Xodar, with an Ugly smile, "nor do I envy
you the manner In which iou will learn It."
As we camo bn deck I saw to my sur
prise that tho .Vessel was passing bver ft
great field of snow and Ice. As far ns tho
eye could reach in any direction naught clso
There could be but one solution to tho
myBtery. We were above the south polar
Ico-cap. Only at the iioles of Mars li there
Ice or snow upon tho planet
No Blgn of life nppoared below us. Evi
dently we wero too fat south even for the
great fur-bearing animals which the Mar
tians bo delight In hunting.
Xodar was at my Aide As I stood look
ing out over tho Bhlp'B rati. '
"What course?" 1 asked him.
"A llttlo west of south," ho replied. "You
will see tho Ot Valley directly. Wo shall
skirt It for A fow hundred miles.
"The Otz Valley 1" I exclaimed. "But,
man, Is not thore whero lie tho domains of
tho thems from which I but Juet escaped?"
"Yes," nnowered Xodar, "You crossed
this ice-field last night In tho long chase
that you led us. Tho Ots Valley lies in ft
mighty depression at the south pole. It Is
sunk thousands of feet below the level of
tho surrounding country, llko n great round
"A hundred miles from Its northern boun
dary rlso tho Otz Mountains, which circle
tho inner valley of Dor, In tho exact centre
of which lies tho Sea of Korus On tho
shore of this sea stands tho golden temple
ot Issus In the Land of the First Born. It is
there that we are bound."
As I looked I commenced to realize
why it was that In all tho agea only ono
had escaped from the Valley Dor. My
only wonder was that even the one had
been successful. To crosi this frozen,
wind-swept waste of bleak Ice alone and on
Only by alrboat could the Journby bo
made," I finished aloud.
"It was thus that one did eecapo tho
thernS in bygono times; but none has ever
escaped the First Born," said Xodar, with
a touch ot pride In his voice.
Once we passed far ab6Vo what seemed
Dear Everybody At this season of the year llttlo girls and little boys
"go Visiting." That means, they go and stay awhile with friends or relatives.
I think it would be a good Idea to print a few remarks about the rules
which should govern those who visit. It is not tho easiest thing in theworld
to bo dropped right into somebody's house and "make yourself at home.
It is not easy for those who entertain you, either.
The main thing to remember when you go visiting Is this Do not bother
any ono and do not let any one bother you. ...
Try to take along wfth you everything which you will need during your
stay. Find out how long you aro invited for, nnd when the time is up, GO!
Do not stay a minuto "longer than your welcome.
No nmount of teasing should tempt you to stay. "Git up and git.
Find out when those whom you aro visiting like to REST and see that
you do not disturb them,
Be kind to tho servants whero you visit. Thoy havo extra work on
your account. If you havo candy, send some to the servants; nnd try, if you
can, to remember them with Home simple gift when you go away.
SERVANTS ARE, HUMAN.
Find out when the meals aro and BE THERE ON TIME. Nothing upsets
a household so much as being lato to meals.
Bo kind courteous considerate, and don't "BUTT IN." Never mind tho
And write homo often, if only a postal, card. FARMER SMITH,
P. S. You might tako this talk along with you, for it has taken mo
many years of visiting to know the simple things to put down here.

Xodar. It runs far beneath the Ice-field,
And below the level of tho Valley Otz,

Presently I descried whnt I took to be

Asked him what it might be

laUghlng. "Thla strip botwoon tho Ice

Now, wo swung n, little north of west,
leaving tho valley of lost souls, and shortly
I discerned over our starboard bow what
appeared to bo n black mountain rising from
tho dcsolato wasto of Ice. H was not high
nnd soemed to havo a flat fop.
Xodar had left un to attend to somo

I asked hor.
"In part, yes," sho answered "That

"As tho lesser Barsoomlani of tho outer
