"Do you menn to defy me, Gib?"

glenmed balol'ully. Mr. Glbney looked

"I certainly do, Scrnggsy, old pepper

Kenning tho futility of further argu
ment, Cnptnln Scraggs sought solace
In n stream of ndjectlval opprobrium,
plainly meant for Mr. Glbney but de
livered, nevertheless, Impersonnlly. He
closed the pilot-house door furiously
behind him and stnrlcd for the gnllcy.
"Some bright dny I'm goln' to git

Mr. Glbney bnwled after him, "an'

shlppln' world'll know you no more."
"Oh, go to glory, you plg-lron pol
isher," Captain Scraggs tossed bnck
nt him over his shoulder nnd honor
wns sntlstled. In the lee of the pilot
house Captain Scraggs pnused, set his
Infamous old brown derby lint on the
deck nnd leaped furiously upon It
with both feet. Six times he did this;
then with n blow of his list he
knocked the ruin bnck Into u sem
blance of Its orlglnnl shape nnd Im
mediately felt better.
"If I wns you, skipper, I'd hold my
temper until I got to port; then I'd
git Jingled un' l'orglt my troubles In
expensively," somebody advised him.
Scraggs turned. In a little squnro
hutch the bond and shoulders of Mr.
Hartholomew MeGr.ffey, chief en
gineer; first, second nnd third as
sistant engineer, oiler, vlpcr, water
tender, and conl-pusser of the Maggie,
appeared. He wus stnndlng on tho
steel ladder that led up from his
stuffy engine room nnd hnd evidently
come up, like a whale, for a breath of
fresh ulr. "The wny you ruin them
bonnet h o' yourn sure Is a scundnl,"
Mr. McGuffey concluded. "If I hnd n

A native of Snn Francisco, ho had

craft. Despite his "ticket" there wns

In the beginning, Captain Scraggs
had planned to do bny nnd river tow

first time the unfortunnte Scraggs at
tempted to tow a henvlly laden bnrge
up river, n light fog had come down,
necessitating the frequent blowing of
the whistle. Following the sixth long
blast, Mr. McGuffey hnd whistled
Scrnggs on tho engine-room howler;
swearing horribly, he hnd demanded
to he Informed why In this nnd thnt
the skipper didn't leave that dod-gnst-cd
whistle alone. It was using up his
steam fnstcr than ho could manufac

a patent foghorn, nnd when the hon

crawl up river, the tide had turned
nnd the Mnggle could not buck the
ebb. McGuffey declnred a few new
tubes In the holler would do the trick,
but on the other hnnd, Mr. Glbney
pointed out thnt the old craft wns

Hut now a difficulty nrose. The new

English lnngungc, the Inspectors were
obdurate. What If the distance was
less thnn twenty-five miles? they
pointed out. The voyage was unde
niably coastwise und carried with It
nil the risk of wind nnd wave. And
In order to Impress upon Captain
Scrnggs tho weight of their authority,
the Inspectors suspended for sl

Unfortunately for Mr. Glbney, he

Also, he hnd thnt beastly hnblt of

"run tho ship" nnd, on occnslons,
ladle out suggestions to his skipper.
Thus, In time, he acquired a reputa

himself reduced to the alternative of
longshore work or n fo'castle berth In

With nlacrlty, therefore, Mr. Glb
ney hnd accepted Scrnggs' offer of
seventy-ftvo dollars n month "nnd

neglected to Inform his owner of this;
the honest fellow proceeded upon the
hypothesis that what people do not

Ciiptiiln Scruggs read the log and
reported the mileage to Mr. Glbney,
who figured with the stub of a pencil

Promptly nt eight o'clock Mr. Mc

"Heurd the Mngglo's siren," Cnptnln
Scruggs retorted venomously.
Mr. Glbney lenped out on deck, se
lected ti small head of cabbage from u

Then he sprung back Into tho pilot
house und straightened tho Magglu on
her course again. He leaned over the
binnacle, with tho cuff of his watch-

Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from rcportn from druggist
who tire constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation thnt
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild nnd healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Hoot is
soon lealicd. It stands the hiijliwjt for
its tcinnrkablc record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made the ns
totiisliiug statement that one rca'on why
so many applicants for imurance ate tc
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, nnd the
larpe majority of those whoso applica
tions arc declined do not even suspect
that they have the disease.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Hoot is on oale
at all drug stoics in bottles of two nizes,
medium nnd large. However, if you wih
