"Here is the hundred dollars, Don Jose," said Pedro, handing the gold to Wiles with a decidedly brusque intimation that the services and presence of a stranger were no longer required. Wiles took the money with a gracious smile and a wink that sent Pedro's heart into his boots, and was turning away, when a cry from Manuel stopped him. "The pot, the pot, it has leaked! look! behold! see!"

As the schooner arrived opposite the castle, a small postern leading out upon the jetty was opened, and an officer and six soldiers issued forth. Four men, who had been lying on their oars in a boat at the jetty stairs, sprang up. The soldiers jumped in, and the rowers pulled in the direction of the schooner. "Jesus Maria y José!" exclaimed the lady. "Madre de Dios!" groaned her husband.

Then then why then," a smile dawned in his eyes, and robbed them of that frigidity which had so desperately held them, "then I'll ask you to help me fix things with Father José so Jessie and I can break a new trail that don't head out north of 'sixty." Bell River lay far behind.

He went into Don Felipe's house half an hour ago." "Well, what of that? You know what my father said." I spoke boldly, as if there could be nothing in the business; but José smiled grimly.

"I've been watching that middle-aged gentleman who seems to be pressing close in on the flank of the crowd. There, see, he is speaking to Manuel, our purser, now, asking him some question. He looks up here at us; yes, and waves his hand, with a smile! That must be Señor José, all right, Frank."
