The Boy Scout Camera Club - Chapter 25. The Confession Of A Photograph
CHAPTER XXV. THE CONFESSION OF A PHOTOGRAPH"There's a ravine off to the right where the machines may be hidden," the clerk said, when the racing automobiles stopped at the foot of the hills. "Show the way, then, quick," hastily commanded the leader. "We want to see what sort of people they are who ride at break-neck speed in the darkness." The machines were driven into the ravine referred to, and the secret service men and the boys secreted themselves in a clump of undergrowth close to the roadside. The horsemen came on swiftly, and would have passed only that the detectives... Long Stories - Post by : aixar - Date : May 2012 - Author : G. Harvey Ralphson - Read : 3210

CHAPTER XXIV. THE MAN-TRAP IS SETNed, Oliver and Teddy remained in camp all the afternoon--waiting. They were not, of course, anticipating the immediate return of Jack and Jimmie, but they were looking every moment, after a couple of hours had passed, for some signs of the boys who had been sent out in the wake of Bradley. "I'll bet a cookie," Teddy exclaimed, as the sun set over the ridge to the west, "that Frank and Dode have bumped into something hard!" "I may have made a mistake in not going on that trip myself," Ned mused, "but I had an... Long Stories - Post by : tedcash - Date : May 2012 - Author : G. Harvey Ralphson - Read : 3358

CHAPTER XXIII. RACING MOTORS ON THE WAT"Some day," Jimmie said, as he urged Uncle Ike down an eastern slope of the Alleghany mountains, "I'm going to have this mule put in a book." "If he keeps up his stealing," Jack declared, "he is more likely to be put in jail. That mule is certainly a bad actor." "Huh!" grunted Jimmie. "He's got a sugar tooth, or he wouldn't steal!" The boys drew up when nearly to the valley through which runs the North Fork and looked over the landscape. There was another range of mountains straight ahead, and beyond that the...

CHAPTER XXII. A RECRUIT FROM THE ENEMY"So you know the men who have taken the boy we call Mike III.?" asked Ned. "I know him too well," was the bitter answer. "He's one of the men who use their friends up to the limit and then drop them!" "You say 'him,'" Ned suggested. "Is there only one in this outrage?" "There are several, but all bow to the will of the leader. I can't tell you anything more about it! I don't like the way I have been treated, or I wouldn't have said as much as I have." "I thought...

CHAPTER XXI. TOLD BY THE PICTURES"You'll think we took great care of the camp!" Teddy said, flushing, to Ned, as Jack and Jimmie, followed by the cheers and good wishes of their chums, started away. "Aw, it wasn't Teddy's fault at all," Oliver declared. "He went down to tell Uncle Ike what a gentleman and a scholar he was, and I was supposed to watch the tent." "And I was to help him," wailed Dode. "See how well I did it!" He swung a hand around at the mess on the ground. "So, while Teddy was down at the corral, Dode...

CHAPTER XX. SHOOTING ON THE MOUNTAINSIDEBradley smiled cynically as he looked down toward the tent. He could not, of course, distinguish the figures as plainly as Jimmie could with the glass, but he knew from the excited manner of the boys that something unusual was taking place. "You have visitors at the camp?" he asked cooly, as the lads motioned to him to move on. "I shall be glad to meet them, you may be sure." He held out his manacled hands suggestively as he spoke. "You're not invited!" Jimmie grunted. "We've got private date with those people. You might muss... Long Stories - Post by : tedcash - Date : May 2012 - Author : G. Harvey Ralphson - Read : 3367

CHAPTER XIX. NED PLAYS THE MIND-READERJack stood in the little cabin in the valley and looked Ned expectantly in the face. "Tell me," he finally said, "tell me why they painted this boy?" "To get us off the trail of the prince," replied Ned. "But it seems that they failed," suggested Jack. "You know?" "I suspected from the very first," Ned answered. "Yesterday afternoon I knew." "Well, it may be all right," Jack muttered, "or the man who brought him here may need a new wire on his trolley, but I can't see why they should bring this counterfeit prince here...

CHAPTER XV. A NIGHT ON THE SUMMIT"Now," Ned said, as the signal columns died down, "we'll hike back to camp with our pictures and get supper! How does that strike you?" Jack turned toward Ned impatiently. There was not light enough for his face to show clearly, but Ned knew how the boy was scowling! "And go off and leave Jimmie here?" Jack said. "I'd like to know what you're thinking of! Why have you changed your mind? I'm going to stay here until it gets good and dark and then go up there." "You may spoil all my plans if...

CHAPTER XIV. POINTING OUT THE TRAILAfter leaving the window at the rear of the cabin, Ned moved to the north side there was no window at all, and stood there, huddled against the wall, until he heard the old lady enter the house and close the door. Peering around the corner to see that no one was in sight, he crossed the open space swiftly and approached the grove where he had seen Jack. Jack was not in sight, but a round hole cut in the bark of a tree told the direction in which he had gone. In the... Long Stories - Post by : grahamlaurie - Date : May 2012 - Author : G.

On the morning of the fourth day, if you are still here, we shall send you your friend's right hand. On the fifth day you will receive his left hand. On the sixth day his right foot. On the seventh day his left foot. On the eighth day his head. If you obey this command he will be restored to you, in good health, at Cumberland." "Is it a joke?"...

CHAPTER XII. THE BLACK HAND GAMEShortly after breakfast, and after what remained of the chickens had been eaten, Bradley and his charge left the camp, after inviting the boys to visit them in the cabin in the valley. Bradley appeared anxious to be friendly, and seemed absolutely frank in his talks. The only suspicious thing they noticed in him was his jealous care of the boy--his reproaches when the lad had indulged in a word or two of French! "You bet I'll visit you at the cabin!" Jack said, as the two disappeared over the summit. "I'll be there with the... Long Stories - Post by : grahamlaurie - Date : May 2012 - Author : G. Harvey Ralphson - Read : 637

CHAPTER XI. JACK'S ELEGANT CHICKEN PIEThe sun was high over the mountains when Ned awoke on the morning following the adventure with the counterfeiters. Leaving Jimmie, Frank, Teddy and Oliver in their bunks and Dode, the new acquisition to the party, curled up in a nest of blankets, he issued forth from the tent and looked about for Jack, who had been left on guard. The boy was nowhere in sight at first, then he saw him at a spring which bubbled out of the mountain not far from the corral. It was the water from this spring which brought forth...

CHAPTER X. "PACKED AWAY LIKE SARDINES"Even in that underground room Ned could hear the shooting outside and the screams of the aggravated mule. Several weapons seemed to be pouring out lead, and the boy wondered if the outlaws were getting the range of his chum. The firing seemed to grow fainter as he advanced into the room. Either the outlaws were pursuing Frank or the shooters were taking refuge behind rocks which deadened the sound. At first the boy kept his eye out for an attack on himself, but there seemed to be none of the outlaws left in the subterranean...

CHAPTER IX. A LANK MULE AS A DECOYJudd Bradley, the young man who had brought the boy into the mountains, stood for a moment watching the mule curiously. Then he stepped nearer to Ned, who was trying to quiet the fractious animal. "Be careful," Ned warned, as Bradley approached. "Uncle Ike doesn't take to strangers. He may kick if you come within reach." "Hell kick you whether you come within reach or not!" grumbled Buck, who had been brought from the cabin by the clatter of the mule's hoofs. "He reached over forty acres of rock to hand me one on... Long Stories - Post by : grahamlaurie - Date : May 2012 - Author : G. Harvey Ralphson - Read : 3452

CHAPTER V. JIMMIE AND TEDDY MISS A MEAL"I was scared to come up until I heard your voice," the old lady said, as she came close to Ned. "I didn't know you were only a boy." The woman appeared to be very old. Her hair was white and her lean face was wrinkled and leathery with time and storm and exposure to the winds of the hills. Still, old as she seemed to be, she walked alertly, with the swinging grace of the true mountain woman. She was very plainly dressed in a one-piece gown of dark calico. Her head was...

CHAPTER IV. A CAMP IN THE MOUNTAINSIt was early June, and the members of the Boy Scout Camera Club were camped on a mountain top in West Virginia. They had spent about two weeks in making the trip to the point where they had established camp. Three mules, divested of their burdens now, were "staked out" in a little corral fragrant with grass down near the timber line. The tent they had carried was a short distance below the summit, on the eastern slope, with packages and bags and boxes of provisions piled around it. To the south lay Virginia, to...

Jimmie and Oliver rushed away to find Terance, the coachman, and undertake the search suggested, while Ned, Jack, Frank and Teddy sat at the open windows looking out on the street. "Chang Chu was at liberty to go into the attic at any time?" asked Ned, tentatively. "Oh, yes," Jack answered, "the other servants sent him about on errands.

"Let us find out exactly what Jack means before any remarks are made," he said. "Well," Jack began, almost in a whisper, "the servant who came to the door said--" "Wait a moment!" Ned requested. "Let us get this at first hand. Is the servant you refer to still out in the corridor? Look and see." Jack opened the door an inch and looked out. "Yes," he reported, facing Ned, with...

"Quite a mixture of wild creatures to be found in a splendid clubroom in the city of New York!" exclaimed Ned Nestor, a handsome, muscular boy of seventeen. "How many of these denizens of the forests are ready to join the Boy Scout Camera Club?" "You may put my name down twice--in red ink!" shouted Jimmie McGraw, of the Wolf Patrol. "I wouldn't miss it to be president of the United States!" "One Wolf," Ned said, writing the name down. "Two Wolves!" cried Jimmie, red-headed, freckled of...

"Fremont is free to go back to New York, taking his mine with him! Nestor was right when he declared that the solution of the Cameron mystery lay on this side of the Rio Grande." "But the object of our visit has not yet been accomplished," Nestor said, "and so I can't go back with you. Perhaps you would better leave me in charge of the mine!"
