Two hours of torrlblo work followed,
in which all hands of ua two hunters,

llko a drowned rat, was being dragged
out from undor tho forecasts head,
whoro ho had cravenly onsconccd

cabin and noted with a shock of sur
prise that tho galloy had disappeared.
A clean spaco of dock showed whoro
It had stood,
In tho cabin I found all hands as

and got somo Bleep,"
Tho sailors slipped forward, sotting
tho Bldo-IIght8 as thoy wont, whllo tho
two huntors remained to sloop In tho
cabin, It not bolng deemed advlsablo
to opon tho slldo to tho stoorago com

that I did not know anything about

"I don't think it waD worth it," I

"Dut Kolly dlfln't amount to much,"
was tho roply. "Good night."
After all that had passod, sufforlng
Intolerable anguish In my flngor ends,

Scaling schooner after scaling schoon
er wo sighted nnd boarded, most of
which woro In search of lost boats,
and most of which woro carrying
boats and crews thoy had picked up
and which did not belong to them.
For tho thick of tho fleet had been
to tho westward of us, and tho boats,
scattered far and wldo, had headed In
mad flight for tho nearost rcfugo.
Two of our boats, with mon all safe,
wo took oft tho Cisco, and, to Wolf
Larson's hugo doltght and my own
grief, ho culled Smoke, Nllson nnd
Leach, from tho San Diego. So that,
at tho ond of flvo days, wo found our
selves short but four mon Hender
son, Holyoak, Williams and Kolly
nnd wcro once moro hunting on tho
flanks of tho hord.
But Wolf Larson, as was to bo ex
pected, bolng n boat short, took pos
session of tho first stray ono and com
pelled Its men to hunt with tho Ghost,
not permitting them to roturn to tholr
own schooner whon wo sighted It. I
remember how ho forced tho huntor
and his two men bolow, a rlflo at their
brcastB, whon tholr cnptaln passod by
at blscult-toss and hailed us for In
formation. I was learning moro and moro sea
manship; and ono clenr day a thing
wo rnroly oncountorcd now I had tho
satisfaction of running nnd handling

stood nt tho whool from morning un

most unusual thing. Dut It was "Doata

It was at this tlmo that I was ap
proached by Leach. I had Just fin
ished tallying tho skins of tho last
boat aboard, whon ho camo to my side,
in tho darkness, and said in a low
"Can you toll mo, Mr. Van Woydon,
how far wo aro off tho coast, and what
tho bearings of Yokohama aro?"
My heart loaned with gladnesB, for
I know what ho had in mind, and 1
gavo him tho bearings west-northwest
and flvo hundred mllos away.
"Thank you, sir," was all ho said
as ho slipped back into tho darkness.
Next morning No. 3 boat and John
Bon nnd Leach woro missing. Wolf
Larson was furlouB. It was llko look
ing for a nocdlo in a haystack to ralso
that tiny boat out of tho bluo immen
sity. But ho put tho Ghost through
hor best pneos so as to got botwoon
tho dosortors nnd tho land. This ac
complished, ho cruised back and forth
across what ho know must bo tholr
On tho morning of tho third day,
shortly after eight bolls, a cry that tho
boat was sighted camo down from
Smoko at tho masthead. All hands
llnod tho rail, and there, to leeward,
In tho troubled silver of tho rising
sun, appeared and dlsappoarod a black
spock. Wo squared away and ran for
It. I lookod nt tho gleam of triumph
In Wolf Larson's oyos, his form Bwnm
boforo mo and I felt almost irresist
lbly Unpolled to fling mysolf upon htm
Tho boat was nenr enough now for us
to mnko out thnt It was largor than
any sonllng bont and built on differ
ont linos. Smoko, who hnd doscondod
to tho dock and was now standing by
my sldo, began to chucklo In n slgntll
cant way. I looked at him Inquiringly.
"Tnlk of a mess!" ho giggled. "Don't
you soo thoro, In tho storn-sheets, on
tho bottom. May I novar shoot n seal
again if that ain't u woman I"
I lookod closely, but wns not sure
until oxclamntlons broko out on nil
Bides. Tho boat contained four mon
and Its flfth occupant was cortalnly ft
woman. Wo woro agog with oxclto
mont, nil oxcopt Wolf Larson, who wbb
evidently disappointed In that It was
not his own bont with tho two victims
of his mnllco.
Wo ran down tho flying Jib, hauled
tho Jlb-sheots to windward and tho
main shoot flat, and enmo up Into tho
wind. I now caught ray first gllmpso
of tho woman. Sho was wrappod In a
long ulstor, for tho morning was raw
and I could soo nothing but hor faco
and a mass of light brown hair oscap
Ing from undor tho soaman's cap on
hor head. Tho oyos woro largo and
brown and lUBtrous, tho mouth sweot
and sonsltlvo, nnd tho fnco ltsolf
dollcato oval, though sun and oxpos
uro to briny wind had burnt tho faco
scarlet. Whon ono of tho sailors lift
od hor Into Wolf Larson's down
Btrotchcd arms, Bho lookod up Into our
curious faces and smllod amusedly
and sweetly, as ouly a woman can
smllo, nnd as I had seen no ono smllu

"Mr. Van Woydcnl"
Wolf Larson's volco brought mo
sharply back to mysolf.
"'Will you take tho lady below nnd
seo to hor comfort? Mako up that
spare port cabin. Put Cooky to work
on It. And seo what you can do for
that faco. It's burned badly."
Ho turned brusquely nwny from us
and began to question tho now men.
Tho boat was cast adrift, though ono
of them called It a "bloody shamo"
with Yokohama bo near.
"No need to go to any great troublo
for me," sho protested, when 1 had
seated her In Wolf Larson's armchair,
which I had dragged hastily from his
cabin. "Tho men woro looking for
land at any momont this morning, and
tho vossol should bo In by night; don't
you think so?"
Her simple faith In tho Immediate
futuro took mo aback. How could I
explain to her tho situation, tho
strango man who stalked tho sea like
Destiny, all that it had taken mo
months to learn? But I answered hon
estly: "If it woro any other captain except
ours, I should say you would bo ashore
In Yokohama tomorrow. But our cap
tain Is a strango man, and I beg of
you to bo propnred for anything, un
derstand? for anything."
"I I confess I hardly do under
stand," sho hesitated, a perturbed but
not frightened expression In hor eyes.
Or Is it a misconception of mlno that
shipwrecked people aro always shown
every consideration? This is such a
little thing, you know. Wo aro bo
closo to land."
"Candidly, I do not know," I strovo
to renssuro her. "I wished merely to

captain, Is a bruto, a demon, and ono

Leach and Johnson, when suddenly,
llko a thunderclap, "Boat ho!" camo
down tho open companlonway. It was
Smoke's unmlstakablo volco, crying
from tho masthead.
There woro swift commands on
deck, a stamping of fcot and a slap
ping of roef-polnts as tho Ghost shot
Into tho wind nnd about on the other
tack. As sho filled away and heeled,
tho armchair began to slldo across the
cabin floor, and I sprang for it Just
in tlmo to prevent tho rescued woman
from being spilled out.
Her oyos woro too heavy to suggest
moro than a hint of tho sleepy sur
prise that pcrploxcd hor as sho looked
up at mo, and sho halt stumbled, half
tottered, as I led her to her cabin.
Mugrldgo grinned Insinuatingly In my
face as J shoved him out and ordered
him back to his galley work; and ho
won his rovengo by spreading glow
ing reports among tho hunters as to
what an excellent "lydy's mydo" I was
proving mysolf to bo.
I camo on deck to And tho Ghost

cutting In to windward of a familiar
sprltsall closo hauled on tho same
tack ahead of us. All hands woro on
dock, for thoy know that something
was to happen whon Loach and John
son woro dragged aboard.
Wolf Larson strode aft from amid
ships, whoro ho hod been talking with
tho roscued mon. Tho catlike spring!
ness in his trend was a little more pro
nounced than usual, and his oyos wero
bright and snappy.
"Throo oilers and a fourth ongi

of a twlngo or pang, like tho cut of a

thought It a cortaln silly fastidious
ness on my pnrt, but It persisted In
splto of mo, and I moroly shrugged
my shoulders In answer.
Wolf Larson pursed his lips In a
long, qutzzlcnl whlstlo.
"What's hor namo?" ho demanded.
"I don't know," I replied. "Sho Is
nsloop. Sho was very tired. In fact.
I was waiting to hear tho nows from
you. What vossol wns It?"
"Mail steamer," ho answered short
ly. "Tho City of Tokyo, from 'Frisco
bound for Yokohama. Disabled in that
typhoon. Old tub. Oponed up top nnd
bottom llko a sieve. Thoy woro adrift
four dnys. And you don't know who
or what sho Is, oh? maid, wifo or
widow? Wolt. woll."
Ho shook his head In a bantering
way, and regarded mo with laughing
"Aro you " I begnn. It was on tho
vorgo of my tongue to ask If ho woro
going to tako the castaways In to Yo
"Am I whnt?" ho askod.
"What do you Intend doing with

Ho shook his head. "Really, Hump

"By you," I answered steadily. "And

I could hardly bollovo my oars.

BEWARE THE POPULAR MAN

of Husband, According to
A sophisticated widow, airing her
views in a Now York paper, declares

makes tho very worst kind of husband.
Tho typo of man who is loved by men,
chiefly for his genial faults, is a terror
to live with, says this lady, who is
credited with considerable oxperience.
Such a man is qulto incapable of
solf-study and of self-criticism; ho
knows tho men liko him and ho can't
think why his wlfo doesn't. Tho man
who Is popular with men, says this
lady, never gets on, either in business
or anything elso. He takes prldo In
being a good spender and ho cultivates
tho art of generously spending, to the
dotrtment of the art of making. The
wifo of such a man is forever anxious
about financial matters, usually neg
lected, invariably unhappy. And the
men aro always so sorry for him, be
ing tied to such a fussy wife.

nessing for Christ
By REV. JAMES M. GRAY, D.D.
Dean of the Moody Bible Initltute
TEXT Ye shall be witnesses unto me.
A true witness dellvereth souls. Prov.
These Scriptures sot boforo us tho
reason that truo Christians, saved
men and women,
aro left on tho
earth. If "to do
part and bo with
Christ 1b far bet
t o r," a s Paul
wroto tho Philip

Is that Christ who
loved his peoplo

as ho saved them,

reason his enemies wore not allowed
to put him to death was that his re
maining In tho flesh was moro need
ful for tho service Christ had for him
to do, and doubtless this is true of
Now, what Is that service? Tho
text tells us that It is to witness for
Jesus Christ, and with tho object of
delivering, that is, saving souls.
There aro many kinds of service
Christians ought to do for their fol
low men, and bo far as our observa
tion goes thero is a fairly generous
and intelligent disposition on their
part to do them. The emphasis laid
upon "social service" has wrought
wonders In stirring professing Chris
tians to perform their obligations to
Bocioty In a spirit of unselfishness, and
all classes aro feeling the benefit. Wo
aro all grateful for this, and trust tho
pressure may not bo released, and
that tho pulpit and tho religious press
may contlnuo that instruction and ex
hortation wo all need to perform our
But two thoughts occur to us, and
ono is that wo may engage in that
kind of service without ever bearing
witness Bpociflcally to Jesus Christ,
and the other, that after wo havo ren
dered that service to our fellow men
thoy may still remain Ignorant of the
Gospel and "dead in trespasses and
Theso things are true because so
cial service of certain kinds is, even
at its highest level, only for tho bet
terment of earthly conditions and
takes no cognizance of a llfo beyond.
Mon and women of tho world with
kindly hearts may engage in it, who
thomselves aro quite ignorant of tho
new life In Christ Jesus, and whose
motives aro merely humanitarian. In
deed tho most selfish principles may
make us diligent in some forms of so
cial service, for ns we are bettering
tho conditions of thoso around us we
aro bettering our own.
Can we not easily see that this
necessitates no mention of Jesus
Christ, and especially no mention of
him in that capacity which most truly
glorifies him, namely, his redemption
of human kind by his death upon tho
cross? You meet a.boggar, let us say,
and you glvo him a nickel or a dime
for a cupful of coffee and a night's
lodging, and he thanks you for it. That
is, he thanks you for it, and thero
the transaction ends.
But what is It that stirs you to re
spond to his appeal, simply tho deslro
to bo rid of him or a feeling of sym
pathy for his need. But it may ho
something elso. It may bo tho lovo of
your Savior in you, and for you, that
prompts tho gift, and if so, should not
mo oeggar no torn or it mat no, tno
real giver, may receive tho thanks?
Carry out this thought In other
form of social service and discover
whero It leads. You will never ho sat
isfied to do kind things for men with
out letting them know In somo way
that it is Christ in you that is do
But suppose wo go further. You
may bo engaged in service more strict
ly Christian, and yet bo negligent of
your supreme obligation to win souls
to Christ. Sundny school teachers
aro often lacking In deslro and ability
to ongago in personal evangelism, and
hence boys and girls, and young men
and young women remain In tholr
classes year in and year out, without
being moved to cross tho lino from
dnrkness to light, from death to life,
Thoro aro ministers greatly lacking In
the samo regard and worso than all.
Christian parents who never think of
dealing personally with their children
on tho subject of tholr conversion to
and salvation by Christ. Is not this
awful to contomplato?

KEEP A RECORD
of what you write
Business men recognize
the importance of keeping
carbon copies of every let
ter, contract and transac
tion. It is a protection
against dishonesty, errors
and forgetfulness. One of
the reasons why farmers
should use typewriters is
that it enables them to
keep on file complete rec
ords of correspondence,
crop reports and whatever
is necessary to put farming
on a business oasis.
