THE MUCKER SEES A NEW LIGHT
Too Long; Didn't ReadTOGETHER the girl and the mucker approached the entrance to the amphitheater. From behind a shoulder of rock they peered down into the forest below them. For several minutes neither saw any cause for alarm.
“I guess youse must o' been seein' things,” said Byrne, drily.
“Yes,” said the girl, “and I see them again. Look! Quick! Down there—to the right.”
Byrne looked in the direction she indicated.
“Chinks,” he commented. “Gee! Look at 'em comin'. Dere must be a hundred of 'em.”
He turned a rueful glance back into the amphitheater.
“I dunno as dis place looks as good to me as it did,” he remarked. “Dose yaps wid de toad stabbers could hike up on top o' dese cliffs an' make it a case o' 'thence by carriages to Calvary' for ours in about two shakes.”
“Yes,” said the girl, “I'm afraid it's a regular cul-de-sac.”
