CHAPTER XIII. Continued.
For perhaps an hour the three ves
sels the ship nntl the two HIIUI ! !
bouts held on , every uintnunt bring
ing the llttlo chasers nearer tholr
great quarry , , The Flying Star was
making no oapoclal effort at speed.

In high hope , Carrlngton , especially.
Ilo thought that he at last had Strath-
gate where ho could not escape , and
If Ellen and Deborah were on that
ship , they could not get away , either.
Into this peaceful nautical passage
nt arms , suddenly a now factor was
Introduced. That , of course , was El
len's boat. Sheltered by the Island
neither Stvathgate nor Carrlngton
had noticed It until It suddenly shot
Into view. Now Kllou had a bettor
wind than any of the other three. On
ii broad reach she came down on the
big ship , as a sailor would phrase it ,
hand over list. Her little boat was
heeled over until the lee gunwale was
awash and danced over the waves sit
n torrlflc pace. ,
Carrlngton saw the boat first. The
reckless way in which she was being
sailed caught hla oye. It was lee far
for him to distinguish who sailed It ,
lint he could tell that one of them was
a woman. Something made him be
lieve that it might bo his wife. Ho
gave the tiller to llalght , went up
forward and stared hard. Ilo would
Inive given anything for a glass hut
there was nothing of that kind in the
fisherman's boat and ho had (0 ( trust
to hiB unaided eyesight. The longer
he looked the more sure ho became
that it was Ellen. Ills first Impulse
was to alter his course and head di
rectly for her cutter , but he realised
the moment ho conceived tlio ( iPElgn
( hat he could never intercept her , that
his only chance was to overhaul the
ship for which she was evidently mak
ing. Ilo would thus lose no distance.
If she did not intend to try to board
the ship ho could chnse her after
ward. The sailors on Strathgate's
boat evidently pointed out the situa
tion to him just as it had presented
itself to Carrington , so all three hold
Ellen had the shortest distance to
sail , and a free wind , while the ship
and the other two boats had a hard
beat before them. There was nothing
Carrington could do in fact but hold
his course , yet with what a fever of
Impatience he continued ills sternly
beat to and fro across the harbor.
The only satisfaction ho got was that t ,
with every tack he gained percep
tibly on Strathgato. Indeed the boats
passed each other close enough for
conversation , but Strathgato had noth
ing to say to Carrington and Cnrrlng-
ton controlled himself waiting for a
convenient opportunity to express him
self fully and unequivocally.
Both of them , moreover , were en
grossed in the other boat. As the
boats converged upon the ship , there
wns no doubt in Carrlngton's mind I ,
or in StratliEnte's , us to the Identity
of its passengers. The wind was get I-
ting stronger us they drew farther out
into the open channel and the rate at
which they were drawing nuaror to the
ship grow correspondingly slower.
Carrlngton * gritted bin teeth In ills [

on marked ( hat with Biiddon nur-
irlse. The ship wns not going to
America apparently.
Hut It wan evident , even ( o the most
sanguine mind , that the game was
ip. Strathgato'ii boat was suddenly
put about. The earl had abandoned
the chase and was going bank to bar
bor. CnrrliiRton was not so easily
daunted , or perhaps ho was more
blind to the possibilities , for ho strove
to persuade the boatmen to continue
the chase. Ho would have sailed t < :
Franco , or ( o America , or to the end
of the world , in whatsoever boat be
was on so long OH It would float. Hit
the boatmen were not so minded. They
were not provisioned for such
cruise nor prepared for It. Not over
the incontlvo of unlimited flnancla
rewards with which Carrlngton titrovi
to dazzle them could make them agrc
to continue I ho pursuit. They won
clamorous for putting back to Ports
mouth , seeing plainly that they had
failed. It was only the personal au
thority of Carrlngton'n rank and sta
tion which kept them from summarily
dispossessing him from the holm.
I'll Kill You. "
They were not quite ready for that
when Strathgate's boat came rushing
down toward thorn.
It was Carrlngton's opportunity.
Ilalked in his chase of his wife , ho
determined to wreak his vengeance
upon the earl. As the boat drew close
to his bows , by a sudden sweep of the
helm ho sent his own heavier cutter
crashing fair Into it. The force with
which he struck the other boat caused
Strathgato's smaller vcasel to hang on
the bows of Cnrrlnglon's boat. There
was no loss of life , for Strathgate ,
scarcely worse for the disaster , fol
lowed by Cooper and the lad , scram
bled aboard Halght's cutter.
White with passion Strathgato
rushed aft , snaking his fist at Carrlng
ton , who snt laughing bitterly In the
stern sheets. At Strnthgate's back
were Cooper , furious over the deliber
ate wrecking of his boat , and the boy
eager to join In the fray.
"lly heaven ! " cried Strathgato ,
fiercely , "what did you mean by
that ? "
"I should think that my meaning
was obvious oven to you , " says my
lord , indifferently , although ho was
soothing with anger to see his adver
sary within his reach.
"I don't know you , sir , " cried Coop
er , shaking his list , "but you sunk my
boat. Von done it deliberately. It'll
cost you a matter of 50. "
" Tls cheap at the price , " answered
Carrlngton. "Don't worry , my man.
Just plpo down , " ho continued , as
Cooper opened his mouth to expostu
late. "I'm Lord Carrington. You shall
bo paid for your boat and something
for your trouble. "
"Payment Is not enough to com-
ponsato me , Carrlngton , " cried Strath-
gate , furiously.
"No , " returned Cnrrlngton , "thcro'a
nothing that I might offer you that
would pay you for what you've done ,
you dnslard ! "
"What do you mean ? "
"You know very well what I mean ,
although 1 confess 1 have done some
wrong to your powers of fascination , "
returned Carrlngton.
"And what , pray , may bo the ox-
plnnaMon of that statement ? " queried
"I thought that you hud run away
with my wlfo ; 1 thought so yesterday
morning , that Is ; but now 1 see that
she Ucd from you as well as from
j me "
"It's a He1" crlrd Strnthgate.
1'oth mt'ii were now so worked up
nnd so blinded with passion that they
odid not care for the opon-niouthoU ,
opon-eurctl ramllenco which crowded
around thfmi.
"Sho did go with me , " continued the
"It lookit like it this morning. If
she went with you , how did she como
to be on yonder ship while you were
hero ? "
Strnthfinte Janghcd evilly.
"If you must know It , my lord , your
wife lied In my company. "
"Damn you ! " cried Carrlngton.
But Strnthgato went on without
"An ; icoldont , a broken coach wheel
stopped our Journey. I rode on ahead
to make arrangements for our passage
to some happier land on yonder ship.
Lady Ellen elected to go by water. "
"I don't "believe n word of it , " re
turned CairJngton. "if it were true , "
asked my Jord again , "I usk you
why you wwo not on the ship ? "
"I overnlevt myself this morning ,
with the conKoqtienccH which you see. "
"You haveir't seen the" end of those
consequences , my Lord Strathgate , "
continued Cnrrlngton.
"No ? "
"Not by any means. Wo'll settle
the question as to which of us Is to
live "
"And have Lady Ellen ? " Interrupt
ed Strathgnte.
Carrlngton whfjipcd out hla pistol.
"Another word like that nnd I'll
kill you without giving you a chance
for defense. "
"You threatened to murder mo on
I ho wharf an hour or so ngo , " and
Strathgate , equably. "What prevents
you from doing It now ? "
"A thing of which you know noth
ing , " answered Carjington.
"And what is that , pray ? "
"A sense of honor. "
"Indeed , " answered the earl , "I had
understood that your honor was in
Lady Ellen's keeping. "
The sweat stood out on Carrlngton's'
face. He locked hla jaws until the
musclcw rose like whipcords. lie was
under the strongest possible con
straint a man may pitt upon himself.
"My Ironer is In her ladyship's keep
ing , " ho wild slowly at last , "and I am
confident that she will never put It at
the hazard of a blackguard like your
self. "
This time it wns Strathgate who
gave way.
"Yon have another pistol at your
bolt. Give It to me. Take you one
end of this boat and 1 the other. Wo'l
see then who has the right to live an <
lovn. "
"I dishonor myself , " said Carrlng
ton , rising nnd abandoning the tiller ,
which was Instantly grasped by one
of the crew , "by meeting you In this
way. but I'll do it. Hero ! "
He extended OIK ; of the pistols.
"I would prefer a choice , " said
Strathgate , not extending his arm to
take it. ,
"As you will , " returned Carrington ,
extending both of them to him. "You
honor me In doubting my good faith , "
ho remarked as Strnthgiitc took ono
of the pistols. "Hnlght. " said Carring
ton , "take your station nmldshlp , out
of range , and count three. There
shall be no firing clone by either of us
until after the word 'three. ' Are you
agreed , Lord Strathgate ? "
"Entirely , " returned the other , step ,
ping forward.
But Master Haight did not propose
to have his vessel turned Into a field
of honor , which would bo a field of
Ulood. He Interposed a vigorous ob
"Gentlemen. " ho began , "I'll have no
murder done here. "
"There shall be none , " said Carrlng
ton. " Tis a fair duel with each' man
a chance for his life. "
"I don't know about that , my mas
ters , " returned the sailor , "but I say
this : This bent's mine , I'm the cap
tain of It , and I'll have no flghtln'
aboard. Savin' yer honors' graces , it
can't bo done. You agree with me ,
Cooper ? You , Jack ? You. Ned ? "
"Ay , ay , " returned the others , clos
ing about Haight and interposing be
tween the would-bo combatants.
Massachusetts Girl Refused to Wed
Count and Denounced Him.
At St. Stanislaus * church , Fall River , |
Mass. , Angola Pawlow , daughter of a
merchant , absolutely refused to go on
with the marilage ceremony that wan
to unite her to Basyl MullnskI , who
says he is a Polish count and the
owner of an estate in Russia.
The marriage had been set for
eight o'clock. The church was crowded
with friends nnd relatives. The bride
groom had answered an exultant
"Yes" to the usual question , and the I 1 |
bride , In n white silk wedding dress
with long veil and wedding bouquet ,
seemed ( o amllo ns Father Basin
turned to her nnd asked : "Will than
take unto theo this man to bo thy
lawfully wedded husband ? "
The brldo dropped her hand from
the arm of the bridegroom. She
turned and faced the crowded church
and answered loudly :
"No ; ho has been unfaithful to mo
before marriage. I will not marry
him , "
Then the girl ran down the aisle to
her mother. The audience was dum-
founded. Before it really appreciated
what had happened the church officials
had cleared the church.
Woman's Wiles.
"Yes , " confided Mrs. A. , "I find It
very profitable to give my husband a
dressing down occasionally. 1 gave
him ono to-day. "
"But how Is It profitable ? " queried
Mrs. Z.
"Why , ho generally glvea mo a
dressing up. "
"Dressing up ? "
"Yes ; to got mo in good humor
again ho promlseH mo a new coat , a

Jommlssloner of Labor Ryder Finds
Politico Slow In Comparison With
Crop Matters.
Corn Is King.
"Republican and democratic speak-
.TH , oratorn and nation savern all
agree , rays Labor Commissioner Ry
der , that they never saw so llttlo pub-
lie Interest In politics or candidates.
The contract price of corn or the average -
age date of early frost In Nebraska
are the engrossing subjects.
"Talking of prices , I was told by an
Aurora man who has several farina
that ho has been offered r > 0 cents for
all the corn ho will deliver. Ho re
fused the offer. And let me say the
government estimate of our corn crop
is too high , while some of the railroad
estimates are away off , In my judg
ment. Wo have several hundred re
ports hero In the office now , that bear
out this statement and I have been In
a largo number of fields on foot. A
great deal of corn Is thin and uneven ,
nnd fully 10 per cent of the total acreage -
ago planted has been lost. Nebraska
will have probably 70 per cent of a
full normal crop , not more.
"This must be said , however. Where
we have good corn this year we have
ns fine a crop as heart could wish. A
yield of GO bushels to the acre can
be looked for in some fields , barring
a hard frost within two or three
weeks. Forty bushels will be the tally
in a great many instances , nnd 20 to
30 bushels will be realized in many
moi'j fields. But the big expectations
of some folks on aggregate yield are
due for n hard tumble.
Omaha in Evidence at Fair.

Cuticura Invaluable.
"My brother had eczema three dif
ferent summers. Each summer it came
out between his shoulders and down
his back , and. he said his suffering
was terrible. When it came on the
third summer , ho bought a box of
Cuticura Ointment and gave it a faith
ful trial. Soon ho began to feel better
and lie cured himself entirely of ec
zema with Cuticura. A lady in In
diana heard of how my daughter ,
Mrs. Miller , had cured her little son
of terrible eczema by the' Cuticura

the eczema so badly that they thought

came back. Mrs. Sarah E. Lusk , Cold-
