visit to tho MagRle results In Captain
BcraRRs promising to get a new boiler
and make needed repairs to Uie steamer.
A week had elapsed and nothing of
nn eventful nnturu had transpired to
disturb tho routine of life nbonrd tho
Maggie, until Bartholomew McGuffey,
having heard certain waterfront wills
pcrs, considered It the part of pru
dence to lay his 'Information before
Kcrnggs and Mr. O.lbney.
"Look here, Scraggs," he began
briskly. "It's nil line an' dandy to
promise me a new holler, but when do

"Why, Jos' ns soon as wc can Ret

"Oh, T nln't tryln' to he disagreeable.
Scrnggs, only It sort o' worries me to
have to go along without beln' nble to
use our whistle."
"We'll fix It when himlncss slacks
up," Scraggs decided with finality. lie
glanced nt his watch. "Sufferln'
sailor I" he cried to slmulnted dis
tress. "Here It's one o'clock an' I nln't
collected a dollar o' tho freight money
frojn the last voyage. I must beat It."
When Captain Scruggs hnd "beaten
It," Glhnoy nnd McGuffey exchanged
expressive glances. "lie's mnnln' out
on us," McGuffoy complained.
"Even so, Karl, even so. Therefore,
the thing for us to do Is to run out
on him. In other words, we'll work a
month, savo our money, an' then, with
out a word o' complaint or nrgyment,
we'll wnllc out."
"Oh. I ain't exactly, broke, Gib. I
Kot eighty-five dollars.','
"Then," quoth Glhney decisively,
"we'll ro on strike tonight. ScraRgsy'll
,ho Btuck In port a week before he can
get nnother engineer nn another nnvl

"I don't want no compromise. 'What
I want la n new boiler."
"You'll Rlt It. We'll make him order
the paint an' the boiler an' pay for
both In advance before wc'U agree to
go bnck to work."
Tho engineer nodded his approval
and after Healing their pact with a
licarty handshake, they turned to and
commenced discharging the Maggie.
When Captain Scrnggs returned to
the little Hteamer shortly after five
o'clock, to his great amazement, be
discovered Mr. Glbncy nnd McGuffey
dressed In their other suits Including
celluloid collars nnd cuffs.
"The cargo's out, Scraggsy, my son,

"Die truth Is nUers bitter," McGuf
Captain Scraggs paused to consider
the eerlous predicament which con
fronted him. It was Saturday night.
He know Mr. McGuffey to be tho pos
sessor of moro money than usunl and
If he could assure himself that this
reserve should be dissipated before
Monday morning he was aware, from
experience, that the strike would be
broken by Tuesday at the latest. And
he could afford that delay. He re
solved, therefore, on diplomacy.
"Well, I'm sorry," ho answered with
every appeuranco of contrition. "You
fellers got me In tho nine-hole an' I
pa n't help myself. At tho same time.
I appreciate fully your p'lut of view,
while reallzln' that I can't convince
you o mine. So we won't hnve no

"By golly, you're glttln' sporty In
your old age," the engineer declared.
"I'll go you, Scruggs. How about you,
"I accept with thanks, Scraggsy, old
tarpot. Personally, I maintain that
seamen should leavo their troubles
"That's the sperrlt I nppreclate,
boys. Come to the cubln nn' I'll pay
you off. Then wait a coupler min
utes till I shift Into my glad rags nn'
away we'll go, like Paddy Ford's gont
on our own hook,"
"Old Sorngg8y8 ns cunnln' as n pet
fox, ain't he?" the new nnvlgatlng olll
cor whispered as Scrnggs departed
for his other suit. "He's goln' to blow
himself on us tonight, thlnkln' to soften
our hnrd resolution. We'll fool him.
Take nil he gives us, but stuud put,
Bart nodded. Ills wns one of those
sturdy natures that could always be
depended upon to play the game, win,
lose or draw.
As n preliminary move, Captain
ScruRgs declnred In l'uvor of n couple
of cocktnlls to whet their appetites
for the French dinner, nnd according
ly the trio repaired to an adjacent
saloon and tucked three each under
their belts all nt Captain Scraggs'
expense. When he proposed n fourth.
Mr. Glhney's perfect sportsmnnshlp
caused him to protest, and reluctnntly
Captain Scraggs permitted Glbney to
buy. Scraggs decided to hnve u cigar,
however. Instead of another Martini.
The ethics of the situation then Indi
cated that McGuffey should "set 'em
nip," which he did over Captain
Scraggs' protest nnd again the wary
Scraggs called for a cigar, nlleglng n
an excuse for his wenkness that for
years three cocktails before dinner hnd
been his absolute limit. A fourth cock-
tall on an empty stomach, he declared,
would kill the evening for him.
But why descend to sordid nnd vul
gar details? Suffice that when the
artful Scrnggs, pretending to be over
come by his potations and very III Into
the bargain, hedged to le delivered
back aboard the Maggie, Messrs. Mc
Guffey nnd Glbney loaded him Into a
taxlcab nnd sent him there, while they
continued their search for excite
ment. Where and how they found
It' requires no elucidation here:
It Is st'fllclent to state that It was ex
pensive, for when men of the Glbney
and McGuffey type hnve once gotten a
fair stnrt naught but financial dissolu
tion can stop them.
On Monday morning, Messrs. Glb
ney nnd McGuffey awoke In Scab
Johnny's boarding house. Mr. Glbney
awoke first, by renson of the fact that
his stomach hammered nt the door of
his soul and hade him be up nnd do
ing. While his head ached slightly
from the fiery usquebaugh of the Bow
head Raloon, he craved a return to a
solid diet, so for sevornl minutes he
lay Biiplne, conjuring In his agile brain
ways and means of supplying this
need In the absence of ready cash.
"I'll have to hock my sextant,"
wns the conclusion nt which he pres
ently nrrlved. Ten minutes Inter he
took his sextant under his arm and de
parted for a pawnshop In lower Mar
ket street. From the pawnshop he re
turned to Scab Johnny's with eight
dollars In his pocket, routed out the
contrite McGuffey, and curried the lat
ter off to ham and eggs.
They felt better after brenkfast and
for the space of an hour lolled at the
talvle, discussing their adventures of
the post forty-eight hours. "Well,
there's one thing certain," McGuffey
concluded, "nn that thing Is sure n
cinch. Our strike has petered out.
Let's mosey along down to tho Mng
gle's dock nn' see how Scraggsy's get
Forthwith they set out to Interview
Captain Scrnggs. The owner of the
Maggie greeted them cheerily, but nft
er discussing generalities for half an
hour, Scruggs failed to make over
tures, whereupon Mr. Glbney an
nounced casually that he guessed ho
and Mac would be on their way.
"Same here, boys," Captain Scrnggs
piped breezily. "I got n new mate an'
a new engineer comln' nbonrd nt ten
o'clock an' we sail nt twelve."
"Well, we'll see you occasionally,"
Mr. Glbney said at parting.
"Oh, sure. Don't be strangers.
You're always welcome ubonrd the old
Maggie," came the careless rejoinder.
Somewhat crestfallen, the striking
pair repaired to the Bowhead saloon
to discuss the sltuntlon over n gloss of
beer. However, Mr. Glhney's spirits
never dropped below zero while ho
had one nickel to rub against another ;
hence such slight depression ns be
felt was due to n feeling that Cnptaln
Scruggs had basely swindled him and
McGuffey. He wns dlsnppolnted In
Scrnggs and said as much. "How
ever, Bart," ho concluded, "well
never say 'die' while our money holds
out, and In the menntlme our luck
may have changed. Lot's scatter
around and try to locate some kind of
a Job; then when them new employees

Three days of diligent search failed
to uncover the coveted Job for either,
however, and on the morning of the
fourth day Mr. Glbney announced that
It would bo necessary to "raise the
wind," If tho pair would breakfast.
They retired to the sidewalk to hold a
caucus and Mr. McGuffey located a
dime which hnd dropped down Inside
the lining of his coat. "Thut settles
It," aibney declared. "We've skipped
two meals but I'll be durned If wc
skip nnother. We'll ride out to the
San Mnteo county line on the trolley
with thut dime nn' then hoof It over
the hills to Hnlfmoon bny. Scraggs
won't git away from the dock here un
til ufter twelve o'clock, so we know
he'll lie nt Ualfmoon bay all night. If
we start now we'll connect with him
lu time for snpper. Eh, Bart?"
"A twenty-mile hike on a tee-totnlly
empty stomach, with n battle royal on
our hands the minute wo arrive, weak
an' dcstltoote, ain't quite my Idea o'
enjoyment, Gib, but I'll go you if It

They took a bitch In their belts and
started. From the point nt which they
left the trolley to their Journey's end
was n stiff six-hour Jaunt, up hill and
down dale, and long before the march
wns half completed the unaccustomed
exorcise hnd developed sundry galls
und blisters on the Glbney heels, while
the soles of poor McGuffey's feet were
so hot he voiced the apprehension that
they might burn to n crisp at any mo
ment nnd drop off by tho wnyslde.
The crew of the Maggie had ceased
working cargo for the day and Cap
tain Scraggs was. busy cooking supper
In the galley when the two prodigals,
exhausted, crippled nnd repentant,
came to the door and coughed propi
tiously, but Captain Scrnggs pretended
not to hear, and went ob with' his task
of turning fried eggs with an artistic
lllp of the frying pan. So Mr. Glb
ney spoke, struggling bravely to ap
pear nonchnlnnt With his eyes on
the fried eggs and his mouth threaten

pectantly, for be was particularly par
tial to fried eggs. As for his com
panion In distress, nnythlng edible and
which would serve to nullify the gnuw

welcome. Inasmuch as Captain
Scraggs did not readily reply to Mr.
Glhney's snlutntlon. McGuffey decided
to be more emphatic and to the point,
nlbelt In a Joking way.
"Hurry up with them eggs, Scrnggs,"
he rumbled. "Me an' Gib's walked
down from the city an' we're hungry.

"This Is piracy, men. It's robbery

them. "Whnfa more, Til do It"
"Tho eggs, Scraggsy," bootucd Mr.
Glbney, "the eggs."
Half an hour later, as the pirates,
replcto with provender, sat dangling
their damaged underpinning over the
stern railing where the gentle wave
lets lnved and cooled them, Captain
Scraggs, nccompanled by the new nuvl
gatlng ofllcer, the new engineer, nnd
Tho Squarehead, enmo aft. The crip

by stuyln' a minute longer, in defiance
o' my orders, you're Inyln' yourselves
liable to a charge o piracy."
Mr. Glbney carefully laid his pipe
usidc and stood up. He was quite an
imposing spectacle In his bare feet,
with his trousers rolled up to his great
knees, thereby revealing his scarlet
llaimel undcrdrnwers. With u stilled
groan, McGuffey rose und stood beside
his partner, nnd Mr. Glbney spoke:
"Scrnggs, be reasonable. We alu't

don't relish It, for we do where n

quietly, "I prefer to die aboard the

"Them's my sentiments, too,
"Then defend yourselves. Come on,
lads. Bear a baud nn' we'll bounce
these muckers ovcrbonrd." The
Squarehead hung buck, having no in
tention of waging war upon his late
comrades, but the engineer and the
new navigating ofllcer stepped briskly
forward, for they were about to 'fight
for their Jobs. Mr. Glbney halted the
advance by lifting both great hands
In n deprecntory manner.
"For heaven's sake, Scraggsy, have
n heart. Don't force us to murder
you. If we're peaceable, what's to

"Enough of this gab," Mr. Glbney
roared. "My patience Is exhausted.

new, vastly relieved, followed him.
The pirates w.ce more sat down nnd

little vessel completed taking on her

Captain Scraggs was still harsh and

screeched. "Don't you give no orders

Mr. Glbncy saw by the hopeful, even
cunning, look that leaped to Scraggs'
eyes that the problem was about to bo
solved without recourse to the Glbney
