Instantly Fred Button and his companion halted and the two boys stared at the sight to which their attention had been directed. Even their guide, who at that time was several yards behind, hastened to join them and was almost as shocked by the sight as was his young companions. What is it? What is it? whispered John. Cant you see? retorted Fred. Its a skeleton of a man. The skull is over there, he explained as he pointed to his right. The other bones have been scattered. Probably some wolves or buzzards have been at work here. For a brief time no one spoke. The bones before them were unquestionably those of a man. They had been bleached by the sun and their very whiteness increased the ghastly impression. What do you think has happened? inquired John in a low voice. Fred shook his head and turned questioningly to the guide. Zeke, the name by which the guide was commonly called, also shook his head as if the mystery was not yet solved. Without speaking he approached the place where the skeleton had been discovered, and a moment later with his foot unearthed a sleeve of a coat which had been buried from sight by drifting sands of the desert.
