distance between them gradually lea-
enej tin they were running only a
few feet apart.
The enr.lneer shouted again and
again but he had very little hope of
ny one't hearing him because of the
great noise made by the machinery;
nd even If they did hear they could
not get In to help him for the door
waa locked and he could not spare
time to fool with that lock Just then.
It was simply maddening to him to
think tha' there were twenty men In
in- mm only a few feet away all ready

only let- them know of his plight and
yet to have that reler.tleM brute chas-
ing him around like a r-t In a trap.
A few mlnutea of thla wild running
exhausted the engineer and he would
have atopped and le'. the grimly do his
worst had It not been for the dread-
ful blood-curdling noise made by the
at-lmal-a claws as he scuttled over the
Uppery floor. The bear lunged and
plunged along like a great awkward

an unwltldly-lmiklng beast and was
fast overhauling the man lu spite of

leaped over the belt he thought that

wbeol would be an easier death than
to be torn to pieces by the bear and
he almost dec;ded to end the dread-
ful chase thi next time he came

running so swiftly to rertaln deuth his
heart failed h'm. and he waited till
I'ext time. Not so the bear. Almont
as the man s feet touched the floor af-
ter the leap be heard an awful roar
and the ti-xt Imtant a badly mashed
