THE BED CLOUD CHIEF.
In a few days Amino and Philip
fook leave of the prlesta, ami qnHtoil
Tor Amsterdam Father Scyaen taking
charge of the cottnge until Amlnc'a re
turn. On IiIb arrival, Philip called
upon the directors of the company,
who promised him n ship on his re
turn from the voyage ho was about to
enter upon, making a condition that
he should become pait owner of the
vessel. To this Philip consented, and
went down to visit the Vrow 1' iterinn,
the Bhlp to which ho had been appoint
ed fas first mate. She was atlll un
rigged, an I the ileet was not expected
to sail for two months. Only part of
tho crew were on board, and the cap
tain, who lived at Port, had not yet
So far ns Philip could Judge, the
Vrow Katerlnn was a very inferior vos
nel; sho wns larger than many of the
others, but old, and badly constructed:
nevertheless, as she hnd been several
voyages to India, and had returned In
safoty, It was to be presumed that she
could not have been taken up by the
company if they had not been satisfied
as to hor seaworthiness. Having given
a few directions to tho men who were
on board, Philip returned to the hostel
ry where he had secured apartments
'or himself and Amine.
Tho next day, as Philip was super
intending tho fitting of the rigging, the
captain of tho Vrow Katerlna arrived,
and, stopping on board of her by tho
plank which communicated with the
ctuay, tho first thing ho did was to run
to tho malnmnst and embrace it with
both arms, although thero was no
imall portion of tallow on It to smear
the cloth of his coat.
"Oh, my dear Vrow' my Katorlna!"
cried he, ns if he were speaking to a
female. "How do you do I am so
glad to see you again; you have been
quito well, I Iiope? You do not like
being laid up in this way. Never
mind, my dear creature! You Bhall
soon bo handsome again."
Tho nnmo of this personage who
thus made love to his vessel was Wll
helm Barentz. Ho was a young man,
apparently not thirty years of age, of
diminutive stature and delicate propor
tions. His faco was handsome, but
womanish. His movements were rapid
and restless, and there was that ap
pearanco in his eye which would have
warranted the supposition that he was
i little flighty, even it his conduct had
not fully proved the fact.
No sooner were the ecstasies of tho
captain over than Philip Introduced
himself to him, and Informed him of
his appointment. "Oh! you are the
flrri mate of the Vrow Katerlna. Sir,
you are a very fortunate man. Next to
' being captain of her, first mate is the
most enviable situation in the world."
"Certainly not on account of her
beauty," observed Philip; "sho may
have many other good qualities."
"Not on account of her beauty!
Why, sir, I say (as my father has said
beforo me, and It was his Vrow before
It was mine) that she Is the handsom
est vessel In the world. At present
you cannot Judge; and besides being
the handsomest vessel, Bho has every
good quality under tho sun."
"I am glad to hear it, sir," replied
Philip; "It proves that one should
never Judge by appearances. But is
ho not very old?"
"Old! not more than twenty-eight
years Just in her prime. Stop, my
dear sir, till you sec her dancing on
the waters, and then you will do noth
ing all day but discourso with mo upon
her excellence, and I have no doubt
that wo shall have a very happy time
"Provided the subject bo not ex
hausted," replied Philip.
"That It never will bo on my part;
and allow mo to observe, Mr. Var.der
decken, that any officer who finds
fault with the Vrow Katerlna quarrels
with me. I am hor knight, and I have
already fought three men In her de
fenso; I trust I shall not have to flghl
Philip smiled; he thought that she
was not worth while fighting for; but
ho acted upon the suggcstloV and from
1 that time forward ho novev ventured
to express nn opinion ngnlnsUhe beau
tlful Vrow Katorlna.

Ip's great vexation, an order to rfcelvo

-whom were accompanied by iiolr
wives and families. Philip wolked
hard, for tho captain did nothlngjbut

embarked everything, and tho fleet Wis
ready to sail.
It was now time to part with Arallo,
who had remained at tho hostelry, nd
to whom Philip had drdlcntPd ovc,'
nparo moment that ho could obtnll.
The fleet wan expected to sail In iw
days, nnd it wn3 decided that on th'

him as they separated on tho beach,
and ho stepped Into the boat In which
he wns to be pulled on board.
"Yes," thought Amine, ns she watch
ed the form of her husband, ns she dis
tance between them Increased; "yes, 1
know that we shall meet again. It Is
not this voyuge which is to be fata to
yen or mo; but I have a dark forebod
ing that the next, in which I shall Join
you, will separate us foreverIn which
way 1 know not-but It Is destined.
Tho priests talk of free will. Is It free
will which lakes him nway from mo?
Yes. Yes. Hut he Is not permitted, for
he must fulfill his destiny. Free will!
Why, If It were not destiny It were
tyranny. I feel, and I have felt, as If
these priests are my enemies; but why
I know not: they are both good men,
and the creed they teach Is good. Good
will and charity, love to all. forgive
ness of injuries, not Judging others.
All this Is good; and yet my heart
whispers to me thnt hut tho boat Is
alongside, and Philip Is climbing up
the vessel. Karewell. farewell, my
dearest husband. I would I woro a
man! No! no! 'tis better as It in."
Amine wntched till sho could ro lon
ger perceive Philip, nnd then walked
slowly to the hostelry. The next day.
when she arose, she found that the
Ileet had sailed at daybreak, and the
chnnuel, which hnd been so crowded
with vessels, was now untenanted.
"lie Is gone." muttered Amine. "Now
for many months of patient, calm en
duranceI cannot say of living, for I
exlct but In his presence."
We must leave Amine to her solitude
and follow the fortunes of Philip. The
fleet had sailed with a flowing sheet,
nnd boro gallantly down tho Zuyder
Zee, but they hnd not been under way
an hour before the Vrow Katerlna was
left n mile or two astern. Mynheer
Uarentz found fault with tho setting
and trimming of the sails, and with
tho man at the holm, who wns icpent
edly changed; In short, with every
thing but his dear Vrow Katerlnn; but
all would not do; she still dropped as
tern, and proved to be tho worst sail
ing vessel In tho fleet.
"Mynheer Vnnderdeckon," bald he,
nt last, "the Vrow, as my father used
to say, Is not so very fast beforo tho
wind. Vessels thnt are good on a wind
seldom are; but this I will say, that,
In every other point of sailing, there
Is no other vessel In the licet equal to
tho Vrow Katerlna."
"Besides," observed Philip, who per
ceived how anxious tho captnln was on
the subjeet, "wo are heavily laden, and
have so many troops on deck."
Tho fleet cleared the sands, nnd were
then close-hauled, when tho Vrow Kat
orlna proved to sail even more slowly
"When we are so very close-hauled,"
observed Mynheer Barentz, "the Vrow
does not do so well; but a point free,
and then you will see how sho will
show her stern to the whole fleet. She
is a fine vessel, Mynheer Vanderdcckeu,
Is she not?"
"A very fine, roomy vessel," replied
Philip, which was all that. In con
science, ho could say.
Tho fleet sailed on, sometimes on n
wind, sometimes free, but let the point
of sailing bo what it might, tho Vrow
Katerlna was invariably astern, and
tho fleet had to heave-to at sunset to
enable her to keep company; still tho
captain continued to declare that tho
point of sailing on which they happen
ed to bo was tho only point in which
tho Vrow Katorlna was deficient. Un
fortunately tho vessel had other points
qutto ns bad as her sailing; she was
cranky, leaky, nnd did not answer tho
holm well, but Mynheer Barentz wns
not to bo convinced. Ho adored his
ship, and, like all men desperately In
love, he could see no fault In his mis
tress. But othors were not sn liiini
and tho admiral, finding tho voyage so
much delayed by the bad sailing of one
vessel, determined to Icavo her to find
her way by herself as soon as they
bad passed tho Cape. Ho was, how
ever, spared the cruelty of deserting
her, for n heavy gale came on which
dispersed the wholo fleet, nnd on tho
second day tho good ship Vrow Kat
erlna found herself alone, laboring
henvlly In tho trough of tho sea, leak
ing so much as to require hands con
stantly at tho pump3, and drifting' be
fore tho gales as fast to looward almost
as sho usually sailed. For a week tho
galo continued, and each day did her
situation become more ninrminv
Crowded with troops, Incumbered with
henvy stores, she grouned and labored
while wholo seas washed over hor, and
tho men could hardly stand at tho
pumps. Philip wns active, nnd exerted
himself to tho utmost, encouraging the
worn-out men, securing whero might
had given way, and llttlo interfered
with by tho enptain, who was hlmsoll
"Well," observed the captain to Phlp
lp, as they hold on by tho belaying
pins, "you'll acknowledge thnt sho Is
n flno weathorly vessel In a gale Is
nho not? Softly, my beauty, softly,"
continued he, spcnklng to tho vc3sol as
she plunged heavily into tho waves,
nnd every tlmhcr 'groaned. "Softly, my
dear, softly! How those poor devils
in the other ships must bo Vnochlns
about now. Hth' Mynheer Vnnder
decken, we have tho start of them this
time; thoy must bo n terrible long WAy

"I really cannot pretend to say," re
plied Philip, smiling.
"Why. there's not one of them in
sight. Yes I by heavens, thero Is! Iwk
on our lee beam. I sec one now. Well,
sho must be a capital Hillor, nt all
events; look there, a point abaft the
beam. Mercy on me, how stiff shu
must be to carry such a pros3 of can
vas!" Philip hnd alrendy seen her. It was
n large ship on a wind, and on the
snmo tack as they were. In a gale, In
which no vessel could carry tho top
sails, tho Vrow Katrlna being under
close-reefed foresails and stnysalls, tho
ship seen to leoward wns standing un
der a press of sail top-gallant sails,
royals, llylng-JIb, nnd every stitch of
canvas which coiiln be set In a light
breeze. The waves were running
mountains high, bearing each minuto
the Vrow Katrlna down to the gun
wale; and tho ship i.cen appeared not
to be nffected by tho tumultuous wat
ers, but sailed steadily nnd smoothly
on an even keel. At once Philip know
It must bo the Phantom Ship, In which
his father's doom was being fulfilled.
"Very odd, Is It not?" observed Myn

diet thnt he could not reply. As he
held on with one hand, ho covered up
his eyes with the other.
But tho seamen had now seen the

known. Many of the troops had
climbed on deck when the report wa."
circulated, and nil eyes wore now fixed
upon the Bupcrnatural vessel, when a
heavy squall burst upon the Vrow Ka
trlna, accompanied with peals of thun
der and heavy rain, tendering It bo
thick that nothing could bo seen. In
a quarter of nn hour It cleared away,
and, when they looked to leownrd, tho
stranger was no longer In sight.
"Merciful heaven! she must have
been upset, nnd has gone down In the
squall!" satd Mynheer Barentz. "I
thought as much, carrying such a press
of Bail. Thero never was a ship that
could carry more than tho Vrow Ka
trlna. It was madness on tho part of
tho captain of that vessel, but I sup
pose he wished to keep up with us.
Heh! Mynheer Vnnderdeckon?"
Philip did not reply to these re
mnrks, which fully proved the mndnesa
of his captain. Ho felt that his ship
was doomed, nnd when he thought ol
the numbers on board who might be
sacrificed he shuddered. After n pause
"Mynheer Barentz, this gale Is likely
to continue, nnd the best ship that
ever was built cannot, In my opinion,

"Never fear for the good ship Vrow

what weather she makes of It."
"Cursed bad," observed ono of the
benmen, for the seamen had gathered
near io i-niup to near wiiat Uls advice
might be. "If I had known that she
was such an oiu crazy ueast I never
would have trusted myself on board.
