CHAPTER XV. Continued.
Crystal only nnsworcd: "What do
you moan to do with this ship, Popo?"
"Sink her."
Crystal stopped In a sort of start.
"It will bo Inhuman " says ho.
Popo, staring him In tho fnco by tho
starlight, raised his hand, and let It
fall heavily upon his companion's

"And my cousin?" exclaimed Crys
tal. "Isn't sho safe!" cried Popo, with a
cordial laugh. "Oh, Johnny, this Is a
rich ship!"
Pope Falls In Love.
Daybreak found Captain Popo and
Crystnl walking tho poop of tho West
Indlaman. "Crystal," sayB Popo, "get
up tho gold out of tho mull room and
transfer It to my cabin nbonrd tho
brig as quickly as may bo done. I
shnll help myself plentifully to pro
visions and drink, but shall not med

"You mean to send tho peoplo
adrift?" Crystal said.
"Yes, these aro sunny seas, Jona
than; they shall leave us well stocked;
and nren't there bontB enough?"
"How nbout Laura, my cousin?" ex
clnlmed Crystnl, In a low, thin voice,
looking askant at his companion.
"We'll keep her with us. Sho has a
rolatlvo in our ship," answered Pope,
smiling; "n man that somewhat re
sembles her father."
"By thq Holy Anchor, then, ho can
bo no beauty I" Bays Crystal, trying to
look ns If ho were tickled; "but I tell
yo what, Pope, I don't half llko the
notion," and now his face took on a
dren away in tho boats under this
sun, though I don't doubt they'll bo
rescued. But " and ho sworo so vio
lently that Laura winced and recoiled,
opening her eyes In horror at him,
"what does ho Intend by keeping you,
a beautiful young girl, tho only fe
mnlo aboard a footy old brig flushed to
her coamings with the sons of hell?"
"You'll protect me," she moaned,
catching hold of his arm again and
looking wildly Into his face with n
sudden desperate expression ot dis
tress and terror.
It was now nbout nino o'clock In
tho morning, and probably by noon the
men of tho Gypsy would have shifted
all they required Into tho brig's hold.
Popo wont up to Miss Crys'tal as
sho stood on deck looking nbout,her.
"I hopo your mind Is easy,"' says
ho In n soft volco, "I vow to God you
aro In no danger."
"But what do you mean to do with
me!" she cried.
"Oh, madam, do not aBk. Grant me
somo lime. Bo sure you aro safe in
my own and your couBln's hands."
"But I shall bo alone among a lot
of frightful pirates," she said, looking
most entreatlngly at him, but not with
tho least fear. How could any womnn
bo afraid of a man who gazed at her
with tho expression, tho tone, Pope's
face and volco took now? He was
head over cars In love, and tho girl
knew It.
"They are frightful, and they aro
pirates," ho exclaimed, smiling. "But
no man will hurt you. I nm captain of
those frightful plrntcs.
"But what dreadful waste of prop
erty, to sink so fine a ship as this,"
said Laura.
"Don't plead, I beg. My mind's re
solved," answered Pope.
"And what Is to become of the peo
ple?" "They shall bo well used," ho an
swered, exhibiting no temper at this

"No!" roared Pope; "I'm captain

resolved on't. Damnntlon, Johnny, no
more words. I tell you. Crystnl, I'm In
lovo with that beautiful woman, and
sho shall be tho wife of an honorable
gentleman of fortune."
As ho spoke he wont down tho com

passengors were assembled waiting
to begin their breakfast. They all
seated themselves and Pope took tho
head of the table. He occupied tho
chair of the man he had slain, and

Pope, "and you will never cease to
congratulate yourselves upon having
helped to rotrievo the fortunes of two

Ho held himself erect and expanded

pleasure in tho gazo that Miss Laura
fastened upon him.
Sho rose whon sho snw Crystal rise,
and went to him. "What does ho

Laura, dotalnlng tho 'squaro man by
