CHAPTER XII. Continued.
"What are you going to do ? " asked
"Use these on them , " answered
"You would not murder ? "
"Peace , child. I have no bullets.
Those are but blank cartridges. Per
haps 1 can frighten them. "
"Frighten Lord Strathgato ! " laughed
Deborah. "Don't try. It will only
make him moro angry , and "
Dut Ellen Blood up In the boat ,
balancing herself lightly in spite of
the pitching , pointed her pistol at
the oilier boat now not moro than
half a mile away , and pulled the trig
ger. Thorp wns a tremendous report ,
for Ellen had put In an extra largo
charge in default of a bullet.
Someone in the boat astern stood
up and waved his hat.
Ellen lot him have the other pistol.
Of course , there was sound and noth
ing more. But the concussion , the
noise and the smoke relieved her feel
ings. Deborah cowered down In the
boat , released the tiller , lot go the
sheet and stopped her cars with her
dropped nor pistols
and by the quickest kind of work ,
scl/.od the tiller and sheet and got the
boat under control before she broached
to. It wns a narrow escape , however ,
and convinced Lady Cnrrlngton that
oho could not indulge in any more
sham battling. She watched the other
boat carefully as her own gathered
way once moro but could detect no
evidence that her firing had in the
least Intimidated these who were
coming so recklessly after her.
Promising Deborah that she would
not flro them again , she got the young
woman to take the helm once moro
while she reloaded her pistols. She
would hnvo given anything for a
couple of good honest leaden bullets.
If she had even had a jeweled ring ,
Bho would have pounded it into shnpo
and rammed it down the barrel , but
ehe had divested herself of all her
Jewels except her wedding ring and
she could not make tip her mind to
blow that away In the present emer
gency. Still the pistols were heavily
charged and at close quarters there
would be nn unpleasant kdoso of pow
der for anyone who tried to molest
The other boat was coming up hand
over hand now. In half an hour she
would bo alongside. Ellen swept the
harbor ahead of her and was sur
prised to see she had not noticed it
in the interest excited by the chase- > -
comlng down under full sail a largo
ship , nn American merchantman evi
dently. She jumped to the conclusion
that it must bo the Now Eagle. If
she could intercept that ship and got
aboard of her , her troubles would bo
over. Provided the ship were willing
to heave to or to check her way , the
hoarding of her would bo an easy mat
ter , and Ellen was sailing on such
a course thnt the Interception of her
would not bo difficult , if It were not
for this boat close astern of her. Far
ther ahead Ellen also marked follow
ing hard on the great ship two boats
like her own and the ono pursuing.
They were , llko tlio merchantman ,
boating down the harbor and it scorned
to Ellen's eyes thnt they wore also
chnslng nftor the merchant ship.
She was moro and moro convinced
nn she studied it , that It could bo none
other than the New Eagle. With sal-
vntlon staring her in the face , Ellen
feared that she would bo unable to
escape her nearest pursuer. She looked
back and could hnvo screamed nloud.
"Kllen , " Maid Uclxirnh , who had
Riven no thtniKht to what was before
her but who had boon staring nt the
other boat , " 1 don't bellovo that'll the
carl of Slrnthgato. "
"Who la it then ? " asked Ellen who
wns thinking hard and desperately as
to what were best to bo done.
" ' ' ' "
"It's I'm sure It's
"Who. Lord Cnrrington ? "
"Nny , " atiHworud Deborah with a
llttlo Blinpor. "Sir Clmrlcs Solon. "
"Impossible , " cried Ellen brusquely.
"How would ho bo there ? "
' "Tin he , I'm mire. I recognize him. "
"You hnvo keen eyes , " said Ellen
looking back. "I always supposed
thnt mlno were good. "
"You might recognize him If It wore
Lord Cnrrlngton , " snld Deborah patly.
"Do you mean to Imply that I that
you " mien gave It up as hopeless.
"I don't care who It is. Look nhend.
Turn your eyes from that young red
coat. Sco yon ship ! That will bo the
Now Eagle. Sco how white her can
vas ! And , yes" as the ship swung
iiround on another lack and gave them
; i vlmv of her broadside "there's the
American fiag. Thnt means safety for
us freedom , If wo can shako off this
pestilent pursuer In our wake. "
"But I don't want to shake him off ! "
"You must. Would you fall Into his
arms ? 'Tls most uninnldcnly , " an
"I don't cnro , " cried Debbie , begin
ning to whimper.
"I guess you can stop crying , " nn-
swcred ISllcn , contemptuously , "for wo
have no moro chance of escaping from
that boat than wo have of getting
aboard yonder ship. "
Ellen's face gloomed as she spoko.
To bo foiled nftor nil she had gene
through by Sir Charles Solon , whoso
pursuit of her , after all , was simply
for this mawkish , whimpering Debo
rah , whom for the first time in her
life she hated , was moro than she
could bear. She came to a sudden res
"I'll run the boat ashore and es
cape through the woods rather than be
caught by them. "
She swung the tiller over , hauled
aft the sheet and In a moment the
boat wns running toward tlio island.
"What are you going to do ? " asked
Deborah again ?
In these days a long shoal , of which
Ellen knew nothing , jutted out Into
the roads. She did not throw her boat
deliberately on the shore , but ran
along it looking for sonic suitable
place to land. Scion's lugger , of
oourso , followed her motions. They
were both under the leo of the Island ,
which broke the force of tlio broczo
somewhat , but Ellen's vessel , being
the smaller , got the worst of It and
felt the wind loss. Solon's boat wns
rapidly overhauling the other. In five
minutes it would bo alongside. Kllen
swung Iho helm over and desperately
headed straight for the shore.
"Stop ! stop , Lady Carrlngton ! " cried
Seton , who wns now in plain view. " 1
mean you no harm. Mistress Debo
rah , can't you ? "
" 1 can't do anything , " cried Debo
rah , traitorously. "Sho won't lot
"If you run down my boat , " an
swered Ellen , handling her pistols , "I
swear I'll use these weapons. "
"There are no bullets In them , "
cried Deborah. "Don't bo afraid. "
Ellen turned on her llko a young
tigress. She could have struck her
with her pistol. Sir Charles only
laughed. IIo was in high glee.
"I wouldn't care If there wore a
thousand bullets in them. I intend to
hnvo you out of thnt boat , Mistress
Debbie , and "
There was a sudden scream from
Mistress Debbie. The boat in which
she sailed met with n sudden check.
The llttlo cutter grated upon the edge
of the shoal. Ellen sprang to the
helm , forgetful of everything else but
the present peril. Her boat goIng -
Ing at a rapid rate had taken ground.
She hoped that the touch had been so
light that the boat would not bo
stopped nnd wrecked. Indeed , she
Jiung herself violently to starboard
and the sudden shock swung the boat
off the shoal. There was a scraping
of sand beneath the keel and the
llttlo shallop slid on.
Sir Charles wns close aboard. Not
bolng a sailor , ho had not noticed , and
In the excitement of the chase , Sir
Charles ottering reward upon rownrd
to the fishermen if they ovoihauled
the other boat , those men forgot the
peril , if , indeed , they know it. For
coming down at full speed and drawIng -
Ing half again 113 much water as
Ellen's cutter , they ran hard nnd fast
upon the shoal.
Ellen had counted upon their dolne
UM very thing. She looked Imck with
eyes of experience , and saw exactly
Iholr position. Indeed , they had bare
ly oacnpod ripping n iimal out of the
lugger. They were rocking tholr boat
furiously and making every effort to
get off , but they had gone mi fair : uid
nqunro , the tide wns on ebb , and
Ellen concluded they wore fixed for
She rose In the Htern sheets nnd
laughed gleefully. She put her boat
about nnd ran down to paaa In otisy
hall of Sir Charles nnd his men.
"Good-by. " she called , laughing
with mockery that stung him , "before
nn hour we shnll be aboard yon ship.
1 amsorry thnt you wore balked. A stern
chnso Is a long chase , Sir Charles , as
you will find upon the cea. "
Poor Sir Chnrles had llttlo to say for
himself. lib felt very much cha
grined nnd bitterly disappointed.
"Gooy-by , Sir Charles , " called Debo
rah , sodly. " 'Tls not my doing ,
"Mistress Deborah , " answered Sir
Charles , plucking up heart , "you have
not seen the end of mo. I shall find
BOIHC menus of following you wherever

"There , Debbie , " said Ellen , "heart

In half nn hour Intercept the oncoming
An Impromptu Affair on the High Seac.
It was hardly possible at first , even
for so practiced and ncuto an cyo as
Carrlngton's , to determine whether he
or Strnlhgato had the better boat. In
the first place , the two cutters were
continually on opposite course split
ting tacks , the wind blowing straight
into tlio harbor , and it was not until
they had passed and repassed each
other several times that Carrlngton
became convinced that ho wns gain
ing on his antagonist. The gain , how
ever , was a slight one. The diffei'
once in the rate of sailing between
the two boats wns not very great
Both of them Bailed faster than the
Flying Star in the air then prevail
ing. When the big ship got out Into
the channel she would probably run
away from the two fishing boats with
out difficulty. The wind being as it
was necessitated a hard boat out , and
: igaln this gave the smaller vessels an
advantage , for they could hold on
where the great ship was compelled
to tack for fenr ot shoal water. And
with every tnck they gained distance.
Carrlngton studied the sea Intently
and concluded that if the wind did not
shift and It did not como to blow hard
er than it wns , there was every pros
pect that both boats would overhaul
the ship. Whether ho could beat
Strathgalo at that game , howevof , In
the time at his disposal was a ques
tion. At any rate there wns nothing
to do but hold on. Master Ilalght had
viewed Carrlngton's usurpation of the
helm with some misgiving at first ,
but his distrust soon gave place to
admiration , for never was a small
boat better handled than by the young
naval officer. If Cnrrlngton had been
sailing the cutter in a race for a stake
of 10,000 , he could not have watched
her more carefully or handled her
more skillfully. lie made everything
That worthy fisherman , Cooper , who
was'sailing Stratligate's boat , albeit
he did very well , was a mere tyro com
pared to Cnrrlngton. Indeed , Cnrrlng
ton felt as If ho were sailing his boat
for love , honor , happiness , revenge , all
the passions that can engross a heart
and move a soul. Strathgnte was no
sailor , but after an hour's rapid sailing
even ho could see that eventually Car
rlngton would overhaul him. IIo
spoke of this to Cooper , wringing a
reluctant admission of the truth of
his conclusions from the sailor , but
tlio latter promised to put him along
side the merchant ship at least be
fore Carrlngton ran him down.

CRUSADE AGAINST CONSUMPTION
Nebraska Should Not Bo Derelict In
thlo Important Matter.
An official of the State Board of
Health speaking of the spread of tu
berculosis in Nebraska says : "This
state should not be derelict In its duty.
Let us get on the mime piano with
Ohio , Minnesota. Michigan , Kentucky
and numerous other states and place
health nbovo politics. The ever In
creasing number of deaths from tu
berculosis is appallng ; In the half
year ending July first there have bciui
307 deaths duo to this dread disease.
In its incipient stages tuberculosis Is
entirely curable , and a campaign of
education would do much toward pre
For generations consumption or tu
berculosis waa believed to bo heredi
tary and hopeless. Perhaps this be
lief brought the conviction that it is a
sort of disgrace and should bo con
cealed as much as possible. And so
the concealment process has gone on
and those close to the hidden dis
grace have become Infected and
passed it on In their turn until
today wo have a menace to our civili
zation in this curse of tuberculosis
the Great White Plague. And only a
good airing , literally as well figura
tively , will put It to rout.
A special campaign against spitting ,
should bo Inaugurated. We have
been stigmatized as a nation of spit-
tors which being Interpreted means
breeders of disease. It Is said of us
that wo spit from uoyhoqd to man
hood day and night , and that far from
their native land Americans are easily
recognized by their spitting proclivi
ties. To quote from a pamphlet Issued
recently by the Nebraska Association
for the study and Prevention of Tuber
culosis : "Mllnons of germs ( tubercle
bacilli ) arc thrown off with the sputum
that is coughed up continually. If the
patient spits on the floor , on the side
walk , in fact anywhere where the
sputum dries , the germs float about
with the dust and arc breathed into
the lungs or upper air passages of oth
er people. Consumptives must expec
torate , but should do so In proper re
ceptacles , spit cups or paper napkins.
If the eims are of china or of metal
they should be scalded twice a day
and at all times contain a solution of
ordinary household lye or other disin
fectant prescribed by the physisian.
If of paper they should be burned. Pa
per napkins are very cheap and should
always be burned before becoming
dry. If handkerchiefs must bo used
they should be thrown into a disin
fectant solution or boiled for ten min
utes before.being placed with othc.r
soiled clothing. A napkin or cloth
should be held to the mouth when
coughing so that no particle of sputnm
may escape. If every consumptive
should by careful living , ( that is by at
tention to the sputum and discharges , )
not infect another person , the exist
ence of tuberculosis would disappear
with the present generation. It is
perfectly possible to eradicate any con
tagious disease. "
