The little uan t long without an expedient. H e called put one of his pluck1est privates, and said: "Jason, do you want to undertake a ticklish job? Look fer Lbe Vrgrlants and the Steam Man and them to coine to our nld. A prayer t rembled on Clark's lips. Of course no fio-htinocould be done until the break of day.

You have solved our salvation, a11d you shall be pro motet!.

In a brief space of time the camp was aroused. The weary soltliers, worn out with lighting, were only too aJad to learn of tile poasil! The passage described by Jason was found. It was necessary to tirst pry aside a huge bowlder before passage could be made. Into the passage the litL! The cavalrymen had reached the prairie in safety and o-alfoped away from the bills. Clark knew that bis only ar;d best move now was to return to the fort for reinforcements. He could not hope to do anything with the roe with such a mere handful of men.

No effort was made to search for the Vigil ants. Clark knew that even with their aid it would not be feasible to give battle to the cowboys. Clearly it was necessary to have two hundretl more men. The colonel set bis lips ven g efully. And as they rode, thrilling adventures were the lot of Frank Rende, Jr. Let us, therefore, lor a time, deviate here and follow their fortunes. Jf the Vigilante was not wholly content to abanuon the trarl or the cowboys, just here. Hrs remarks were not lo ic. They may turn tlie t:bles on them yet. We must not let Clifl' defeat them. If ho does, be wrll defeat us.

We will make a camp down here on Wrllow When w e learn for a fact that Cliff has been ,. Until t! He extended his hand and I agree with you. We cnn tlo tic is upon our own responsibility. You are to wait for Clark We will accompany It was night. The darkness became most mtense m the vicinity. Jants descended and mixe1t: with the Vigilants. For unknown to any in the camp a coterie of dusky savages lurked in the tall prairie grass about. Barney :1ntl were entertaining the with some o l their muucbausen stones Tile plainsmen roared with l:mghter until their s i des ached.

Both were comical mokes and were continually playing roo ts upon each other. The most intense of reigned. All was confusion. Then one of the guards cam e rushing iu. Who fired that pistol shot? They weut on down the creek. He an' the gal have certainly f a llen into the "ti p or ther Injuus. We must make lively work to save "Frank Reade, Jr. Toe crack of ritles now sounded all around the camp. The savages, withou t doubt, were drawing their line closer, and meant If po! But a line of uefense was then thrown out, and the skulk ing savages were held at bay.

It was impossible to tell how to nrove or where. The enemy fired from a11 directions aud practically at random. They allus attack one after el stretch, but Frank did not try to run away from them. The Indtans bore away t o a southwesterly course, and soon a range of hills b e cam e visible above the horizon. Harmon made Lbem out as the Black Bear rana-e. A path was not visible an bera, 1 didn't mesilf till I see the top. There was no time to lo s e. It was a des-" uod we're ready too. If I iver get a head on any wan pernte chance but he tooK it.

I can't see their position very well. Jist rern10st that big scrul. J av an oak on the edJ:e-Of the cliff. Suddenly BarLey gave a sharp around. Over into the water went the doomed savage. The shot hnd been a Whurro:" he yelled. Qtuck as allnah hls rille went to his shoulder. But the c11noe was at the moment nt the bead of some rapids. Then down over the cliff the stream vanished! That was a beautiful shot. There's only three av ther red divils left. This was true, but the three savages seemed likely to elude their Anotber yell, a death cry went up on the air of the defile. The canoe was racing down the stream, and fast neurinrr a defile in lL's only two to wan, Frank.

The outlook now was certainly encouraooina for the rescue of the Frank and BarneY. Jlri oners. But the. Forward, th -en! Is there not a short cut? Jis case far the best. TIJey Both looked! In the 8ame instant they espied it. The creek: took o. Tl ead All was quiet on the bluff above, ow the two pursuers saw that they would be likely to cut ofi the sav Bot It was not by any means likely that the foe were inactive.

The great now was tho. Ou r rescuers wn1teu as long as seemed consistent with safety. Accordingly started forward on the run. The Inuian captors saw their move nt once, and an angry yell went up from them. The bullet whistled close to Barney's ear. The Celt 8tOpped and cocke rave young inventor rushed. He thought or poor Ban ows witb his hamls tied. T3rowo into the watets of the creek, it did not seem as if any power on earth could save him. But two o! The canoe hatl overturned in close proximity to the shore.

The thtrd savage gave aasistauce, and a:; the water did not chance to be deep, all got ashore. But bis statement WllS premature. Even as it seemed that the rescue was certain, an incident occurred to prevent. THE appearance of tbe savages was most inopportune. Mounted on their fleet ponies, witb. Tbe three Indian capto0rs yelled wrth delight. Frank and Barney of course came to a halt. Of course it was folly to tern pt fate. We are badly beaten! PIJwattver shall we do now, Misther Frank!

Come on, Barney! Jere now we d moighty soon turn the thing about. Barney saw tile move and called Frank's to it. Directly in front of them, a body of armed men swept mto the valley. Thev the Vi. At s1ght or Frank and Bar;ey urged tlleir horses O! They turned their horses auout and rode swiftly on the back tratl. Frank could t:ardly wait for Harmon and hia mento come up.

Enthusiastic greetings were exchanged, and also exl-ler:ences.. The Vi"ilants had dtiven the before them mto the lulls. But upgn entering the fastnesses, with which they were not famil inr, the Indians had given tbern the slin In tbe they had come upon the scene at an opportune moment.

Tllere seemed nobetter thing to d o than to give pursuit to the savages at once. Accordingly a couple of spare horses were provided for Frank and Barney, and they rode forward on the charge. The delay had been brief, it had enabled the savages to cross the creel' and start for the defile beyond. Down thundered the vigilants In hot pursuit. The creek was qalckly forded and the pursuers seemed to be gatn-ing at every bouud. But o! In one division was the girl capttve, Bess1e Rodman, and m the other Walter Bar-rows.

The party who had the girl in charge started for the Tbe other made directly across the valley. In a tlasb of ttme the purpose of the savages was made apparent. The vigilants could not go both ways with splitting up. As they were much less in numaer than the Apaches the result of this woqld be to greatly weaken them, if not actually place then: at the marcy of the red foe. On the othe; ban,! Harmon drew a slight rein upon his horse and wavered a moment. The vigilants naturally were inclined to go to the rascue of their comrade, bnt Frank Reade, Jr.

We can rescue the man later. The girl tirst, boys; then we will try and save Barrows. A few moments later they reached it and entered it. High walls of black, fortlid ling rock arose on either side to a mighty height. It was harde r for the horses of the vigilants to pick their way through here lhan the tleet-footed ponies of the savages. Accordingly the lndians. Tile detile seemed sudLlenly to take an upward trend here, and higl:! Suddenly from behind this barrier Lllere came the flash of rill e muz zles, and a volley o!

Cover was quickly sought hehind and near. It was evident that the Indians bad here made a stanLl. The Vlg ilant leader was puzzled. But suddenly Frank Reade, Jr. Nothing was more apparent. The Apaches under the shrewd Red Bear had certainly very cleverly outgeneraleLl tbem. Led into the denle by one division of the Apaches, the other hMl proceeded to block up tbe outlet, and thus litemlly tbe Yigilants were in a trap. There was not the advantap:e in facing a foe in this mann e r that there was in having him wholly in the front.

Harmon was completely taken ahack. IeveLl an Injun could beat me in any such way as that. But we are iu lor it, boys. We've got to fight bar d. Those in the rear had now drawn near enough to also open :nrc. The fun had uegun. But the urave band of white men bad no thought of!

But even in the moment of their victory a strange sound came from the rear and a mighty cry went up from the throats of the 'Hurrah! We are saved! R es cue has come atJast. IT had been Col. Clark's firm. He thought only of securing a sufficient body of men to cope successfully with the cowboys.

      So on they rode the little remnant of the squad for the far distant fort. But after a night bad been spent in camp, just as the bugle called "boots and saddles. One glance was enough and a cry of joy escaped his lips. We are in luck. It is Romaine's company of one hundred men. Forward alii" With cheers the little band rode out to mee t the reinforcements. The command had 'been sent out under Captain Romaine to search for Clark and his men. The two officers shook hands and explanations were made. We come just in the nick df time, Romaine," declared Clark.

      At once the cavalry set out at full gallop for the hills. The tiring was heard long befor,e the pass was reached, and. Clark hurried his men forwaTd. He at once tbre w them into the pass in the rear of Cliff's gang. Jus t as the last cartridge of the vigilants was u sed the ca' e n from their position. Suddenly all firing ceased. The cowboy gang were not in sight, nor d i d the y fir e another shot. I Clark feared a stratagem or some fatal decoy, and d ared not a t once order a charge.

      Up the slope they went with fixed bayonets. But when they cleared the wp of the intrenchments, hastily thrown up by the cow boys, it was found that they had gone: They had departed and completely. Not an article of any kmd was left behmd. Indeed it also became a mystery as to the course taken by them. Not a Rlgn of a trail could be found. It baiDed the cavalrymen. If they would only come out hke men and tlgbt it out it would be all right. But they don t dare do it. An all fired good one. He knew that it must be too true that Besse Rodman had again fallen into the hands of Cliff'.

Barrows was a youth of rare pluck and great determination. Iu this quest he was aidtJd by his blind love for Bessie" Rodman. For her he would gladly give up his life. Striking into the hills he sought to follow the trail of the ab ductors.

      It" was now a blind quest, but this did not him in the Soon Barrows had penetrated deep into the hills. He heard the distant sounds of fi'ring and knew that the soldiers and Cliff's men were yet having it out. It had occurred to Barrows that the ymmg girl might have been taken to Ranch V by her captors. He had half made up his mind to proceed thither when a thrilling thing occurred Suddenly the sharp crack of a rifle smote upon the air.

      It was a narrow escape. The fraction of an inch in another direction and the bullet might have penetrated his brain. Young Barrows bad faced danger and death times Pnough to know quite well what to do. He instantly dropped from his horse and spoke a word of com mand to the animal. The faithful and well-trained steed wheeled and galloped away into the co"er of timber near. Barrows himself sank down behind a pile of rocks.

      All was done in the twinkling of an eve. The trained westerner whose life is in danger knows well the value of quick action. He had run unconsciously upon h1s foes. He expencnced a tbrlll as it occurred to him that this was most likely the party w! Jo had Bes sie Rodman in their charge. He saw that lar up on its side there was a rude cabin made of bark and logs. From this the storm of bullets had come. Nothing could be seen of those within the cabin. But Barrows believed that not only was the foe w1thm, but also Bessie Rodman.

      He was somewhat at a loss now to know just what move to make. To advance openly to the attack would ha,,e been an act; of folly. He would certainly have met his death in a summary fashion. So while pondering on the subject he continued to watch the cabin windows. He' held his rifle in roodiness for instant use. Suddenly a face appeared for an instant at one of the windows. It was qu.
