"I'm thinking you'll wish you were back in the hills before many days," laughed the guide. "Mr. Parry has his own reasons for following this trail, Master Stacy," interposed Professor Zepplin. "We are entirely in his hands and it is not for us to question the wisdom of his decision." The guide nodded.
