"Prudent little grandmother!" murmured
Paul Drexcl, as sho went around the side of
the boat and was Just about to disapjK-ar.
The old adobe catacomb!"
The latter half of his ejaculation referred
to quite another person.
A small, gray-whiskered, austerely-withered
gentleman had emerged from the cabin
just in time to encounter Clarice, whom he
made a gallant effort to detain.
She eluded him, however, and passed on
out of sight while ho advanced.
He came leisurely, putting a final polish
upon bis finger-nails with a silk handker
chief. Then ho looked aloft at the weather,
with an oyc-glaas glued to such a cold,
staring orb, that it might itself have been
the congealing cause of the bank of mist
that was slowly enveloping them.
Drexel's lazily-athletic framo grew sud
denly rigid with a desire to clutch and
drown this insignificant creature. That he
should dare to aspire to tho notice of a
beautiful woman like Clarice wan enough in
itself to merit speedy and iijnomiuioua ex
tinction. He deserved drowning, if that
were not too honorable.
It would be a good nervous relish to pick
him up, shake the littlo pinch of breath out
of his narrow chest, closo a couple of steady
fingers round bis aristocratic windpiie

"Yes sir, a tip-top run. Right time of

deferential than he had been to the youtig

a Havana from the case courteouily ex

nervous and restrained.
They had not been long seated before she
expressed a desire to go for a few minutes

escape them, and, besides, sho had caught a
shadowy perspective of Paul's hat round the
corner of the pilot house.
Mrs. Winterfleld demurred. Miss Rosa

a vail that of the other.

As he said these words tho lugubrious
blast of the stount whistle, which had been
silent for some time during a temporary
lifting of the fog, wheezed forth a longer,
hoarser note than usual.
Clarice laughed hysterically.
Paul joined her.

A tho day went on Clarice grew more
and more puzzled in her own mind as to
whether her attempted flight had been pur

Clarice's unwonted temper took a sudden

into a storm of them, and they were a relief
from theday's complex emotions. ,

but I say what I really do thinu"

'Very well," she said at length. "I will

to take such a course a he has."
"He was comx:llel to do it. You would
not recognize him nor listen to me."

say auch audacious thing in a courtly way,
and who did not humble his had even be

The result was a compromise. lie was to
foci himself welcome to visit Clarice until a
better acquaintance was established, but
meanwhile the question of an engagement
must lie in abeyance.
Clarice was radiant No ono who knew
