So the tievt day. when SamilClson
went down to Manila, he look tho ple

copies of It, and he also bought some
cheap lolled gold lockets and a couple
of yauls of blue tlhbons. When he
came back to Santa Illta that night he
passed out tho pictures and the loekots
to the other men, and the) each cut off
enough blue ilbbon with which to
fasten the lockets around their UPcks.

"That's all," cchod Johnson.

Tho ganlson at Santa IJHa had little
to do fot tho next few weeks. Then
suddeny the ladiones began to make
lalds on tho villages near by, ami one
night they shot Into a town whole
