parently enclosed and Inaccessible. At

looked like rock houses and a wide cavern
and smoke ascending front these houses
indicated they were occupied. I crawled
around a long distance near the rim rock
to see If there was any 'visible entrance.

bullet whined so close to my race thsl It I
made me Jump to shelter. A volley of
shots followed from the same direction.

The inhabitants or Devil's Hole are said
to be thoroughly organized and pledged
by oath to kill any traitor of the gang and
woe be to the luckless stranger or Intruder
who dares to Invade their dark and mys-
