Itself, against tho world, even dead though
It be if it hadn't been for wasting good
ammunition for nothing 1"
A curious, guttural whine down there In
the forest ntlrncted his attention. Over
to the window ho strode nnd once again
A change had come upon tho scene, a

hundreds of the now paling torches cast
their livid glare
Off to one side ho could Just distinguish
what seemed to be a grbup engaged In
some activity, but what this might be he
could not determine. Yet nil at once a
scream of pain burst out therefrom, and
then a gasping cry that ended quickly
and did not come ngnln.
Another shriek nnd still n third, nnd

Rven ns ho spoke the concourse grew
