CHAPTER I
THE TOUCH OF A CHILD 

"I have given my word of honor--my sacred oath--not to betray what
I have discovered here." 

At these words from the prisoner, a shout arose in which oaths and
mocking laughter mingled like the growling and snapping of hunger-
maddened wolves. 

"Then if I must die," Gledware cried, his voice, in its shrill
excitement, dominating the ferocious insults of the ruffians, "don't
kill the child--you see she is asleep--and she's so young--only
five.  Even if she were awake, she wouldn't know how to tell about
this cabin.  For God's sake, don't kill the little girl!"
