For John son and Leach the travail of oxlstonco Lad ceased. The men romalnod grouped amid ships. No ono had gone bolow, and bo ono was speaking. Nor wcro any looks bolng exchanged. Each man soutned stunned deeply contcmpla tire, as It were, and not qulto Buro. trying to realize, Just what had taken place- Wolf Larneu gave them little tlmo for thought. Ho at once put the Qhost upon her course a course which meant tho seal herd and not Yokohama harbor. But the men wore no longer eager as they pulled and hauled, and I beard curses amongst tiiom, which left their llpa emothorod nnd as heavy and lifeless as woro thoy. Not so was It with tho hunters. Smoka tho lrropresslblo related a dtory, nnd thoy descended Into tho stcorago, hol lowing with laughter. As I passed to leeward of tho galloy on my way aft, I was approached by tho engineer wo had rescued. HIb faco was whlto, his Hps woro trem bling. "Good Qod! sir, what kind of a craft 1b this?" ho cried. "You havo oyoB, you havo soon," I answered, almost brutally, what of tho pain nnd fear at my own heart. "Your promlBO?" I snld to Wolf Lar son. "I was not thinking of taking them aboard whon I mndo that promise," ho anawored. "And anyway, you'll ngroo I'vo not laid my hnndB upon them." "Far from It, far from It," ho laughed a moment Inter. I mado no reply. I was incapablo of Bpoaking, ray mind was too con fused. I must havo tlmo to think, I know. Tills woman, stooping ovon now in tho sparo cabin, was a re sponsibility which I must consider, nnd tho only rntlonnl thought that Dickered through my mind was that I must do nothing hastily if I woro to bo any help to her at all. CHAPTER XVIII. Tho romnlndor of tho day passod unovontfully. Miss Ilrowator, wo had learned hor namo from tho engineer, slopt on and on. At supper I request ed tho huntora to lower their voIcob, bo sho was not disturbed; and it was not till noxt morning that sho mado hor appearance It had been my In tention to havo hor moals sorvod apart, but Wolf Larson put down hla foot. Who was sho that sho should bo too good for cabin table and cabin society? had been his demand. Wolf Larson hnd llttlo to say at tlrst. doing no moro than reply whon ho waB addrossod. Not that ho was abashed. Far from It His was tho porfoct polso, tho supremo conildonco In self, which nothing could shako; and ho was no moro timid of a woman than ho wns of storm and battle. "And whon shall wo nrrlvo at Yoko hama?" Bho asked, turning to him and loklng him squaroly In tho oyos. Thero U whb, tho quostlon flat Tho JawB stopped working, the oars ceasod wobbling, and though eyes romalnod gluod on plates, each man listened greedily for tho answor. "In four monthB, possibly three It tho season closos early," Wolf Larson said. Sho caught her breath, and stam morod, "I I thought I was given to understand that Yokohama was only a day'a sail away. It " Horo aho paused and looked about tho tablo at tho clrclo of unsympathetic faces star ing hard at tho plates. "It is not right," Bho concluded. "That Is a quostlon you must sottlo with Mr. Van Woyden thoro," ho ro plled, nodding to mo with a mischie vous twinkle. "Mr. Van Woydon Is what you may cull an authority on such things an rights. Now I, who am only a Bailor, would look upon tho sit uation somewhat dlfforontly. It may possibly bo your misfortune that you havo to romaln with us, but it 1b cor- talnly our good fortuno." "I may bo taken off by somo passing vobsoI, porhaps," aho suggostod. "Thoro will bo no passing vossola, oxcopt othor sealing schoonors." Wolf Larson mado answer. "I havo no clothos, nothing," alio ob Joctod. "You hardly reallzo, sir, that I urn not a man, or that I am unaccus tomod to tho vagrant, careless llfo which you nnd your mon soom to load." "I Bupposo you'ro llko Mr. Van Woy don thoro, accustomed to having thtnga dono for you. Well, I think doing a fow things yoursolf will l'nrdly dislo cate any jolntB. By tho way, what do you do for a living?" Sho rogarded him with nmazomcnt unconcoalod. "I moan no offonao, bollovo mo. Poo plo eat, thoroforo thoy must procure tho whorowlthnl. Thoso men horo shoot souls in ordor to llvo; for tho samo roason I sail this schooner; and Mr. Van Woyden, for tho prosent at any rato, oarns his salty grub by as sisting mo. Now what do you do?" Sho shrugged hor shoulders. "At present," sho said, aftor alight pnuso, "I earn about olghtoon hundred dollars a year." With ono accord, all eyos loft tho platOB and settled on hor. A woman who earned olghtoon hundrod dollars a year was worth looking nt Wolf Larson was undisguised In his admi ration. "Salary or plocowork?" ho askod. "Piecework." sho answered prompt ly. "Elghtoon hundrod," ho calculated. "That's a hundred and tlfty dollars a month. Wol, Miss Browator, thero Is nothing small about tho Ghost Consider yoursolf on salary during tho tlmo you remain with us." Bho mado no acknowledgment Sho was too unusod as yet to tho whims of tho man to accept them with equa nimity. "1 forgot to Inquire," ho went on npHE STORY OF 1 A MAN WHO IN HIS OWN LITTLE WORLD AIOARDSI WAS A LAW .UNTO-HIMSELR auavoly, "na to tho nnturo of your oc cupation. What commodities do you turn out? What tools and material do you require?" "Papor and Ink." sho laughed. "And, oil! nlflo a typo writer," "You aro Maud BrowBtcr," I said slowly and with certainty, almost as though I wero charging hor with a crime. Hor oyes lifted curiously to mlno. "How do you know?" "Aren't you?" I demanded. Sho acknowledged her ldontlty with n nod. It was Wolf Larscn's turn to bo puzzled. Tho namo and Its magic signified nothing to him. I wan proud that it did moan something to mo, and for tho first tlmo In a weary whllo I was convincingly conacious of n su periority ovor him. "I remember writing a review of a thin llttlo volumo " I had begun carolossly, whon Bho Interrupted mo. "You!" Bho cried. "You aro" Sho was now staring at mo in wide eyed wonder. I nodded my identity, in turn. "llumpliroy Van Woyden," sho con cluded; then added with a sigh of ro llof, and unawaro that sho had glanced that rollef nt Wolf Larsen, "I am so glad." "I remember tho rovlow," she went on hastily, becoming nwaro of tho awkwardness of hor remark: "that too, too flattering rovlow." "Not at all," I denied valiantly. "You impeach my sobor Judgment and make my canons of llttlo worth. Uesldes, all my brother critics woro with mo. Didn't Lang lncludo your 'Kiss En durod' among tho four Bupromo son nets by women in tho English lan guage?" "You aro very kind, I am suro," sho murmured; and tho very convention ality of her tones and words, with tho host of associations it aroused of tho old lifo on tho othor aldo of tho world, gavo mo a quick thrill rich with re membrance but Btinging sharp with homesickness. "And you aro Humphroy Van Woy den," Bho said, gazing back at me with equal eolomnity nnd awo. "How un usual! I don't undorstand. Wo sure ly aro not to expoct some wildly ro mantic Boa story from your sober pon?" "No, I am not gathering material, I assure you," was my answer. "I havo nolther aptltudo nor inclination for n.iinn loll mo, why havo you always burled yoursolf in California?" sho noxtaakod.

But tho gates of spooch woro closod, nnd wo, too, roso from tho table nnd laughed awkwardly. CHAPTER XIX. Tho chagrin Wolf Larson folt from bolng Ignored by Maud Brewster and mo In tho conversation at tablo had to express ttsolf In somo fashion, and It foil to Thomas Mugrldgo to bo tho victim.

Mugrldgo'a faco turned whlto undor Its sooty vonoor, and whon Wolf Lar- son callod for a ropo and a couplo ot mon, tho raleorablo cockney tied wild- ly out of tho galloy and dodged and duckod about tho dock with tho grin- nlng crow In pursuit. row things could havo boon moro to their liking than to glvo him a tow ovor tho stdo, tor to tho torecastlo ho had sent messes and concoctions ot tho vilest ordor.

Straight aft ho raced, the poop and along the poop to the Btcrn. So great was his speed that os ho curved past tho corner of tho cabin ho slipped and foil.

By somo freak of pres sures, his frail body hnd snapped the strong man's log llko a plpostom. Pnrsons took the wheel, and the pursuit continued. Round and round tho docks thoy went, Mugrldgo sick with fear, tho Bailors hallooing nnd shouting directions to ono nnothor, and tho hunters bellowing oncournge ment and laughter. Mugrldgo wont down on tho fore-hntch under throe mon; ho emerged from tho mass, blooding nt tho mouth. Tho battlo waB over, and Wolf Lar son rovo a bowllno In a pleco of rope and slipped it under his shoulders. Then ho was carried aft and flung Into tho sea. Fprty, fifty, sixty foot of lino ran out, when Wolf Larson cried "Belay I" Oofty-Oofty took a turn on a bltt, tho ropo tautened, nnd tho Ghost, lunging onward, Jorkod the cook to tho surface.

Principle, Pro gram or Person By REV. J. II. RALSTON Secretary of Correspondence Department, Moody illblo institute of Chicago TEXT Verily, verily, I say unto you, ho that bclluvoth on mo hath evorlostlnt; llfc.-John 6:47. Tho end of salvation, as tho apostlo Peter puts it, is tho saving of tho bouI. Lltornlly millions aro much inter ested In that sal vation, but Satan has been too sue- tnaafnl In tronnlnr? multitudes of them confused as to how it Ui obtain- ablo. Thero may bo threo answers to the quostlon, How la a man to bo saved? Saved by Prin ciple. First, somo seem to think a man 1b saved by adopting certain theological propositions; cer tain religious dogmas or teachings. Tho weakness of this position Ib qulto easily seen by tho majority and they Immediately say that tho theory must ovcnUato in practice; thoro must bo a program of conduct, and that program must bo carried out In actual llfo. Saved by Program. For such a program tho moral law of God 1b put to tribute. Tho ethics of wise men of Old Testament times; tho best ethics of seekers after truth of tho first centuries; tho ethics of tho Sormon on tho Mount and of Jesus himself and his apostles, are all put to tribute, and a program of llfo is presented, and If It can bo carried out, salvation will ensuo perforce. This belief la in the faco of much teaching of tho Word of God that man's right eousnesses aro as filthy rags. Yet, with all this, thero aro thousands of mon and women today who aro trust ing somo program of living to be their passport to eternal salvation. But sincere students of the principles and tho ethics of Jesus havo found that other teachings of Jesus take the foun dation from under this program. Unique Religion. Tho religion of Jesus Christ la unique, being different from all other religions in that thoso who aro to re ceive its benefits are not to do so as tho result of tholr belief in Its prln' clples, nor an alignment of tholr lives with Its program of conduct. Neither Buddha nor Confucius nor Mohammed romps with nimh n. olnlm. Thnv trlvn tho Drlnclnles and tho nrocrnm. but . " . " koop themselves in tho background Not so with Jesus Christ, and, strange nH it mnv neom. hla rnhrrlnn Is. In n sonso, tho most egotistic of all tho rollgions that the race of man has over rocelved. Ho makea moat aatounding claima for hlmsolf: Ho Is equal with tho Father; ho Is tho son of God; ho has all power given to him in heaven and on earth; ho can ralso tho dead; ho can lay down his llfo, but ho can tako it up again; ho can forgive sin; ho is worthy to receive all honor and worship, both of men and of angels; In short, ho claims to bo God. Ho clearly teaches that salvation Is not in assent to, nor in belief In his prin ciples, nor in following a program ot conduct that ho gives, but In living union with hlmsolf. Personality of Jesus Christ. Wo may note that in tho text wo find that belief Is referred to, but no hint is given of principles, or a pro gram ot living. Tho belief horo, how- I , , . . ...... , to o a oxerclso, but a soul movement. This teaching is frequent: "Believo on tho Lord Jesus Christ nnd thou shalt be saved;" "Ho that belloveth on the Son of God hath everlasting llfo;" "Como unto mo nil yo that labor and aro heavy laden and I will glvo you rest." Now all this teaches that religion is not a matter of principles or program, but of personal contact with Jesus Christ. Ho is represented as tho head of tho body, of which saved men nro tho raombors. Ho Is tho chief port of tho great spiritual building known as tho church of God, of which his bollov- era are parts. Ho is tho vino in which believers aro tho branches. It Is in- timato, personal contact all tho way throuch. Ono has vcrv nronerlv said: "Much ot tho dcadnes3 that has come to modern Christendom has resulted presenting n creed Instead of Christ; In presenting a plnn of salvation rather than a person who saves." How to got this personal contnet with Jesus? Study Jesus, as ho is presented, especially in tho gospels and epistles of tho Now Testament, as the Son of God. Whllo no ono can say Jesus Is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit, yet by following tho Holy Spirit jn his teaching In tho Scriptures, wo may believe that ho will glvo light upon light as man goes on honestly and sincerely Booking to know truth at thiB point. - Then let thero bo an uttor and com- piete surrender of tho soul to Jesus Christ. When Saul of Tarsus cried: "What shall I do, Lord?" as ho lay prostrato on tho earth by tho gate of Damascus, bo mado tho great surren der which brought him to personal sal vation, but as well to tho adoption ot principles that gavo him a program ot conduct ploaulng to God, HUSBAN 0 SAVED HIS WIFE Stopped Most Terrible Suf fering by Gelling Her Lydia E.
