Lieutenant Anderson was gazing into
the depths of the great, soft, black
eves of Miss 1'acliita de Sola, and Miss
P.tcliita de Sola was looking up into
tho ardent blue eves of Lieutenant An
derson. She seemed to like it.
The tall young soldier, with tho fair
hair, broad" shoulders and square, man

leased from the hard work and harder
restraint of West Point, and in his new
freedom of army life went at things

This, in a city of .100 0)0 inhabitants
and in full sight of the ever vigilant
garrison, struck John as beiug not im
probable. Instant in action. as becime a soldier.
Lieutenant Anderson executed a fl ink
movement on a sand bank, seated Miss
de Sola in its ice. on a large, water
whitened, sun-dried log of driftwood.
Then t'e consummate tactician re

and gratified vanity that smote his
eyes blinded them.

Pachita pursed her full red lips,
puckered the midnight eyebrows and
considered profoundly, he digging deep
into the sand with his cane the while.
"The day. my own love the day!"

suddenly, "what a beautiful shell"
Damn the shell!'1 cried Lieutenant
Anderson, reaching for what she had
unearthed, to cast it wrathfully out

IS ACGUST, 1323.
The same sun was enriching the
dancing waters of the same bay with
diamonds and opals. A young couple
who strolled down to the Presidio beach
admired the view very much, and
Senorita Pachita de Sola had no occa
sion to remind the Lieutenant by her
side that somebody might be looking.
Lieutenant Juan deEuheandia would
have liked greatly to coil his arm
about that slim waist, but did not dare,
though there was only a small sleepy
garrison, and no city at all behiud
them only the padres and Indians at
the Mission Dolores, far over the sand
hills, and a cabin or two down at the
cm ha read ore. entirely out of sight.
Pacaita de Sola was niece of Com
mandante Don Luis Antonia Arguello;
and though he. Lieutenant Juan de
Eeheandia. was a nep!iew of Don Zone
Maria, of the same name, one. even
tnough an aristocrat, has under all cir
cumstances to show proper respect for
his commanding olucer. ise-odes. the
Senorita Pachita had twice refused his
friendly offered hand.
It was believed that her voting af
fectious were bestowed upon Ensign
Tiburcio Mandez. at Montercv, though
this was not known to a certainty at
Lieutenant Juan de Echeandie and
Senorita Pachita de Sola walked leis
urely to the little wbarf where that
wonderful vessel, constructed but re
cently by a wandering British sailor.
lay preparing for a voyage to Sausalito
four leagues distant.
It was a marvelous boat, with oars
and a sail, and capable of accommo
dating no less than six persons. Dun
Luis Antonia Arguello himself had
commanded her in person on a dozen
passages which she had male to the
opposite shore for timber. Previous
to the creation of this extraordinary
ship, which auuihilated distance and
obliterated time, timber was bard to
get from Corte de Madera.
Sailors were sent around by way of
San Jose, armed with axes, who cross
ed the Straits of Carquincz on rafts,
and in the circuit of seventy leagues
encountered hardships and consumed
weeks. And the timber was brought
over by the Chief Marin, an aborigine,
given to cruising on a float of logs and
tules. who alone knew the winds and
currents of the bay. It was but a day
now to sail over for the timber and re
turn with it.
Corporal Pedro Sanchez had made
all the voyages with the commandants,
and rated now as a superior navigator,
his marine fame being - clear to him.
Don Luis had swollen him with pride
by placing him . in command for this
one trip. His enlargement became
perilous when Lieutenant Eeheandia

descanting eloquently o9 the art and
mystery of seamanship. Jssuingto his
crew of three soldiers sundry orders in
a commanding voice of thunder, he
prepared to pass the point.
Alas, an eastern wind came whis
tling through the treacherous Raccoon
strait, and in spite of all Corporal
Pedro's seamanship, the Mejico' was
caught and whirled round and round,
and home with' the racing tide toward
tho Golden G it.
Senorita Pachita d: Sola screamed,
but there was no help scot dowu from
heaven, even on the appeal from those
pretty lips, grown quite white, or of
that pule face, with its big black eyes
wild with terror.

On the eighth day sincere prayer is

from the west. aud, tide assisting, blew
the Mej'co badi through the Goidmi
Gale. The cruising Chief Mrain. on
his tule float, was sent by Providence
to tow her to the Presidio wharf, where
the command int and t he cheering.gar
rison awaiied the return of the lost to
life, the ones saved in an unquestion
able miracle. The padres bore the
lesson home in many a sermon. .
As the Senorita de Sola rose in the
stern to disembark she tottered from
weakness and agitation. Lieutenant
Juan stretched out an arm and pre
served her from a ducking.
She gave a little scream, not at the
public embrace, but because, in throw
ing up her small brown hands, she
had broken a slender gold chain that
hung about her neck broken it, aud

Luis Antodio Arguello, when they had

is to get married, and at once."
"I'm with you." exclaimed Lieuten

imbedded under a transparent over
lying iridescent deposit, re beheld an
open locket, showing the face of a
handsome young man, evidently Span

him, scrutinized it intently. looked cp
with sparkling eyes and pointed a
slim, triumphant olive linger at a
name beneath the miniature.
- "There." she cried, "grandma did
love that Monterey ensigu, though she
alwavs denied it!"
"But Pachita Pachita. darling, do
name the day." pleaded Lieutenant
Anderson all a throb.
"Oh. bother!" impatiently returned
Miss de Sola, absorbed again in the

Paying for the Patch.
An oll sea-dog. Sawyer by name,
was a privileged character ou a certain
man-of-war, writes a correspondent,
because of his age and the length of
time he had been in the service. lie
eked ont his pay by making aud sell
ing uniforms for the other men, and
as he had the market entirely to him
self it was natural that he should be
come a little autocratic in his dealings.
On one occasion a young sailor wished
to buy a pair of white duck workiug
trousers. Old Sawyer, holding a pair of second-hand
trousers at arm length, de
canted upon their various excellencies
until he was compelled to pause for
breath. At that point the youug fel
low ventured to ask, meekly:
"And what might the price be, Mr.
The old man hemmed aud hawed
and began thus:
"Waal, young fellow. I reckon you
know what white duck costs from the
paymaster, don't you? Fifty cents a
yard, ain't it? And so many vards is
$2 altogether. Then there's the "thread.
10 cents yve call it. $2.10; and the mak
ing will bring it up to $3.50. I calker
late ye yvon't quarrel with that; and
then there's this blue patch," he con
tinued, stroking it lovinglv; "I put that
in myself last summer, an1 it's a good
piece of work. I'm 'fraid I shall. have
to charge you 20 cents extra for that
patch, say $3.70 altogether."
I he money was paid and received
without a word, neither party seeming
to, think it surprising that patched
trousers should cost more than whole
ones. Youth's Companion.
