1OUT OF THE
1 BY S. N. HOOVER.
The time we spent on board the
I/Etoile de 1'Oeust was brief enough ,
for two days after we were picked up
by kind-hearted little Captain Semou-
lin , we fell in with an English frigate ,
the Terrible , ordered home from the
West Indian station , who promptly
took possession of us with but scant
A cannon shot across our bows , an
imperative signal to haul up , was no
tice enough , and , true to his pacific
principles , the little captain did as he
was bid , and soon an English officer
and a boatload of English sailors came
aboard to interview the captain and
settle affairs. We were drawn up with
the crew , but my lord stood near Se-
It was the first lieutenant of the Ter
rible who had come on board , a young
ish man , fair-haired and handsome. He
spoke politely enough in English ; but
Captain Semoulin shook his head. Then
the officer changed his language , but
after a few words his vocabulary
seemed to fail , and he , stumbling , stop
ped with a laugh.
At this difficulty Captain Semoulin
turned to my lord and requested his
aid , signing him to step forward. Then
an odd thing happened.
For , as my lord came forward where
the officer could see him clearly the
young fellow started violently.
"Good God ! " he cried in English ,
stepping back half involuntarily and
turning a little pale. "Caryl is it you
or your ghost ? "
"Not my ghost ! " said my lord , peer-
Ing with his dim eyes , yet eyes that
did not appear dim to others. "Cer
tainly not my ghost , but who is it that
knows my name ? "
"Can't you see me ? " said the young
fellow. "Don't yqu know me ? I'm
Jack Halstead. We were on board the
Resolution together. Surely you are
Frank Caryl who was appointed to the
Calypso ? Surely you haven't forgotten
Jack Halstead. I was senior midship
man. Can't you see me , or am I so
changed ? Why , we thought you had
gone to Davy Jones' locker long ago.
Where have you been ? "
He had sprung forward and caught
my lord's hands in his , and , looking up
into his face , guessed his affliction , and
I saw the tears of pity , affection and
emotion cloud his bright brown eyes ,
while my lord's trembled so that he
could scarce frame his words.
"Remember Jack Halstead , " he said
at last. "I should think so , .indeed.
But I am nearly blind , Jack , and
wholly stupid with misfortune and
grief and disappointment. Jack , Jack ,
will you take me home and swear to
my identity , for they will not believe
rne when I say who I am ? "
"Swear to your identity ! " cried the
young officer , "I should rather think 1
would , Caryl ! But you must come on
board the Terrible , and tell your tale
to the captain. It is Halliford you
knew Halliford. But first let us settle
with this good man. You know the
lingo , so let us fire away. "
So after a short time matters were
settled. The Etoile de 1'Oeust had be
come the prize of the Terrible , and
Captain Semoulin and most of his crew
were taken on board the frigate , while
Eome of the English sailors.under com
mand of the second lieutenant , were
Bent to take charge of the French
vessel and navigate her home. But as
hands were short , Tom and I were left
on board the Etoile , while my lord and
David Boosenut went with the Terri
But though it was hard to part , we
reckoned not to be divided long , for we
were both bound for Plymouth , whith
er the Etoile was to be taken. So we
said farewell to one another , thinking
In a week or fortnight at longest to
meet each other on Plymouth Hoe.
"God bless you , George , " said my
lord , "and you , too , dear Tom. I'm
loth to part with you , but it will not
be for long , I trust. God bless you , and
grant we may very speedily meet
So the boat that carried them away
prew small and black in the golden
dazzle the setting sun was casting over
the heaving floor of the ocean , and we
watched them clamber up the sides of
the hull of the frigate.
It was the day after we lost sight of
the Terrible that coming storms grew
more and more imminent. The wind ,
which came in gusts from various
quarters , uncertain and wandering , at
last settled down and blew with a hol
low moan , out of an ominous cloud , big
with mischief and coming rain. .
All that night the weather grew
worse and worse , and when the late
morning dawned all we could see was
a vista of torn , gray , writhen water ,
and a low , gray sky , of flying , indefi
nite cloud , while the driving rain stung
like hail , and it was bitter cold.
So the dreary time passed. We were
but a small crew to have sailed the
ship in fair weather , and-now we had
scarce time to snatch a mouthful of
food biscuit or salt junk , or the water
we had shipped when the rudder went
had put out the galley fire , and we
could get nothing hot , even if a man
could have been spared to cook it.
"Breakers ahead , " shouted the voice
of a sailor , and then ere the words
were scarce out of his mouth , a jar
a , crash a shiver and jolt through ev
ery plank and timber , a wild turmoil
of falling mast and spar and beaten
foam and roaring billow , and we knew
we were on the rocks.
A great cry arose from the vessel
audible above the roar and shriek of
wind and wave , a great , an awful cry
of despairing , dying men. We clam
bered up the deck , steep as a roof now ,
and , waist deep in water to where the
bow of the vessel with part of the
foremast was driven high upon the
rocks , and there we clustered together ,
a little above the worst sweep of the
waves , clinging on to what was left of
the shrouds and ropes.
So we clung through that night , fro
zen with cold , sick with hunger , wet ,
shivering , gasping wretches , knowing
not if we should ever see the mornnig
again , or whether the dawn that would
be vouchsafed to us would be the mys
tic light ofl the world beyond the
At last , at last the dawn came , and
with the first gleam of light the worst
ferocity- the storm abated a little ,
and presently as the darkness slowly
melted away we understood more of
our situation. Our ship had struck on
a long and jagged reef of rock , run
ning parallel with the shore , whose
rugged cliffs loomed dimly through a
haze of flying foam and spray. If we
could only cross those intervening
yards of raging , foaming waters , that
tempestuous whirlpool of swirling ,
surging , torn and broken waves , we
might be safe.
'How is the tide ? " I said to Tom , who
stil clung by me. "Is it ebb or flow
d'ye think ? "
He shook his head. "How can one
tell ? " he said , in a hopeless tone.
"If one could get a rope'across , " I
said , "it is not far ! "
The lieutenant gave me permission
to try , though from his face I saw he
only though I was going a little
quicker to my death.
Then I got a coil of thin rope , and
fastened one endi round my body ;
while .the other was spliced tJo a
strong cable , so that , if I got to land ,
I could haul the rope to shore , so as
to make a help and stay for the others
through the broken smoth of surf.
Then I slid down the side of the vessel
on to the reef , which now at it high
est part was beyond the worst sweep
of the waves , though the foam slid up
knee deep , frothing and hissing as
every bollow broke-
But I succeeded almost better than I
hoped and , breathless , panting , gasp
ing , cut and bleedign in a dozen places
ing.cut and bleeding in a dozen places.
I reached the last "point of rock vis
ible to me , when to my dismay I
ound I was much farther from the
real shore than I had anticipated , and
that still a wild smother of foaming
water stretched between me and safe
And as I fought and struggled , my
strength failed me more and more ,
and a sharp , strange pain in my side
seemed to choke what little breath I
had left , and I had never reached
that shore alive , but that just as I
felt all my power fail , someone clutch
ed and dragged me up.
"The cord ! " I gasped , and fumbled
at my waist , "the corn pull pull ! "
"God be thanked ! Yes ! It's the cord
round him he is maning. Is it fixed
aboard yon vessel , honey ? " he asked
"Yes , yes , " I panted. "Pull pull for
the love of God ! It's on a cable , and
then the others can come ashore ! "
And so , sheltering under a rock from
the worst keenness of the wind , I had
the infinite joy of seeing my friends
come safe ashore , for the cable , held
taut and fast by the kind , islanders ,
served as a good.support in the whirl
ing waters. The last to reach shore
was the young lieutenant , and then
he and I , and Tom , for Tom would
not quit me , though the others were
carried on to the house , climbed pain
fully the steep path , and so reached
the old Grey House built up there on
the slope of the hill , and looking nigh
as gray as the crags by which it was
Once within its walls , we were sup
plied with dry , warm raiment. Then
we were brought into a great hall ,
with a noble , groined stone roof , sup
ported on pillars , with strange carven
capitals. At one side was a great'open
fireplace , wherein a huge peat fire
burned and glowed , filling the apart
ment with tis strange odor , and a
table had been drawn up , whereon
stood a large tureen of steaming , fra
grant soup , and the young lady who
had been on the beach was ladling the
generous stuff into basins and passing
it round to our comrades , who sat
clothed and dry , but yet had scarce
ceased shivering , and whose hollow
cheeks and still trembling limbs told
of the sufferings they had endured.
But I could not eat by reason of
being in so much pain , which I reck
oned to be the result of a blow I had
received through being dashed violent
ly against a rock In coming ashore
through those terrible waves. I saw
the maiden cast anxious glances at me
as I sat back , white and sick , leaning
against the old oaken settle. Present
ly , signing to a peasant woman , who
lingered about in the hall , gazing at
us , to take her place at the soup
tureen , she went away , and , after a
short absence , she returned , and com
ing to me , she .said she feared I was
hurt and ill , and that it would be best
for me to lie down In bed , so that she
had a room prepared for me.
By this time I was fain to acknowl
edge to myself that I could sit no
longer , so with Tom Dart's help , I
managed to get to the apartment as
signed to me ; a large and lofty room ,
where was a great four-post bed.hung
with faded silk embroidered hangings ,
and high enough to make it difficult
for a man with two fractured ribs to
Yes that was the. result of Mick
blacksmith's examination of my tatrt.
There was no doctor within thirty
miles and more across the wild ant
desolate country at Ballina , but Mich
everyone averred , knew more about
the bones of man and beast than any
doctor in all Connaught , which was
probably pretty near the truth.
I must have slept some hours , for
when I waked a level feeble ray of
watery sunshine stole in sideways at
one of the high narrow windows that
lit my apartment , and the howling of
the wind had fallen to a low and mel
ancholy wail , like a dirge for the de
struction and death that its fury had
"Dear Meg , " I heard the soft voice
as of a child saying eagerly , "do lei
me just see him ; Oh , I will be so
quiet , but I do so want to see the
brave man who saved them all ! "
"Hush , darling whisper you ' must
be very quiet for he was sleeping just
now and the other sailor also. Sleep
will do him good. Well , just creep in
and take one peep ! "
I closed my eyes , pretending to be
asleep , but I did not quite shut them ,
but let in a glimmer of light so as to
see my visitors. They came in very
gently , tiptoeing over the old oak floor
as quiet as two mice.
It was the maiden who had been on
the beach , and who seemed to preside
over the old place. She was tall and
slight and very fair with sunny hair
and gray blue eyes , and by her side ,
clinging to her hand , was a'little maid
of 7 * or 8 summers , whose dark eyes
and curling dark hair made a wonder-
ous contrast with her pale little face ,
and who gazed at me with a sort of
awe and wonder as if I were some
curious and wonderful creature , the
like of which she had never seen be
fore. Then as she looked a sudden
flash of light and merriment came
over her face.
"Monsieur sleeps not ! " she said in
her soft little voice with a quaint for
eign accent , "he is playing foxes. "
"Mademoiselle has caught me ! " I
said , laughing. "Yes it is true I was
playing foxes. "
"And are you better ? " she saidcom
ing nearer and looking pitifully into
my face. ' " 3 your pain better ? "
"Oh ! ye. I answered cheerily. "And
I am so warm and comfortable. But , "
and here I turned my eyes to the
elder maiden , "will you tell me now
where I am , and the names of those
to whom we owe all this kindness and
hospitality ? "
"This is the home of Clonben , " she
answered , speaking as I had noticed
before , with no trace of Irish accent.
"It is the Irish coast on which we
have been cast ? " I said , questioning-
"Yes , the Irish coast indeed , and at
its farthest and wildest portion. For
yonder promontory you can see thro *
the window , " here she drew the cur
tain back a little , "is Erris head , and
behind us landward lie long leagues
of bog and heath and desolate moun
tain ere you reach a town or village
of any size. "
"And you , madame , you are the mis
tress of this ancient house ? Faith , you
and your little sister are young indeed
to be here alone as you seem to be. "
"This young lady is not my sister ! "
she answered smiling down on the
little maid. "She is cousin to the earl
who holds this property , and I am her
attendant and nurse , and , till better
can be procured , her governess. "
"You are Meg , my dear , dear Meg , "
cried the little1 creature. r"Ah , I wish
indeed , you were my real own sister ,
but yo uare like it my dear grown
up sister ! " and she kissed the hand
she clasped so tenderly.
"But you must not talk any more
now , " went on the young lady. "Ah !
we have waked your comrade , " for
Tom Dart here began to stretch and
yawn , and then scrambled confusedly
to his feet , as he became aware of
who was present.
"Will you come with me ? " she said ,
speaking to him , "and I will get some
brot'h for your friend , for he should
have something now. "
Tom brought me a cup of brot/v but
I could take but little , for I grew fe
verish and full of racking pain thro'
ever limb , beside my broken ribs. In
deed , I remember but little for some
days but a medley of wandering terri
ble dreams , when I was once more
struggling with the waves and beaten
against the rocks , or I was back in
prison , ever escaping , but aways fail
ing to do so.
Besides.Tom . I knew I had another
nurse , tender , gentle , untiring , who al
ways soothed my anguish even in my
worst moments , and that was Miss
Margaret , as they called her. What
Cuther was her name , I had not heard.

FRILLS OF FASHION ,
The small figured velvets are ex
tremely popular , especially in the
brown , gun metal and fawn shades ,
ou see them in fine line1 stripes and
pin dots in white very close together.
A point for sleeves in the evening
coat is a long tight cuff nearly cover
ing the forearm and finished with
frills of lace at the wrist. The upper
sleeve falls into this with a baggy
sort of puff over the elbows.
The mattress pincushion which en
joyed considerable popularity a few
years ago has made its appearance
again this season in an especially at
tractive form , those of striped silk
ribbon being particularly pretty.
For the table as a substitute for the
old-fashioned cozy is the dainty three

heavy cream lace.
Crepe de chine , both in velvet and
pale tnits , makes lovely high-necked
dinner gowns since it has all the vir
tues of the thinner fabrics without be-

trimming for the white and it is used

waist line to the top of the shaped
flounce which is in a graduated width.
A home made music portfolio fre

as an expensive one purchased at the

Electric Power in the Country *
are today 91 miles of in-
terurban road in the state of
Wisconsin operated by electric
ity. In addition to this there are 155
miles projected , which will be con
structed next year. Then scores of
miles more are in contemplation. All
of this is in the southern portion of
the state. To make interurban roads
return dividends a populous country is
necessary. Little towns or hamlets
scattered along at short intervals con
necting with larger cities Is the first
thing that the promoters of electrical
lines look for. With that as a founda
tion they feel sure that in time the
dividends will be commensurate with
the financial outlay.
The northern portion of the state
thus far has heard little of electrical
roads save in the large cities. But
that part of the state Is settling up
rapidly and it is only a few years
when electric roads will begin to
spread out in every direction in that
section as well as in the southern and
older settled portion of Wisconsin.
The lines now in operation are the
Milwaukee-Waukesha line , the Mil
waukee-Racine and Kenosha line , the
road connecting Oshkosh with Apple-
ton and Kaukauna , passing through
Neenah and Menasha , and the short
line to North Milwaukee. Surveys al
ready have been made with the view
of extending Ihe Waukesha line out
through the lake resort region to
Oconomowoc , and it will be built in a
short time , possibly next season. The
Kenosha line will be extended to con
nect with the line extending north
from Chicago , forming a through elec
trical line betwieen Milwaukee and
The Fox river valley line , which
now ends at Kaukauna , will unques
tionably be extended to Green Bay , In
orde rto connect the string of cities
and large towns which stretch along
the river valley and have mutual in
terests. In addition to this a line Is
about completed between Manitowoc
and Two Rivers , 'a distance of twelve
miles , which is the first link in the
chain that will eventually be extended
southward to Sheboygan and north
ward to Algoma and Sturgeon Bay
and possibly up the Door County Pen
insula , which at present has no rail
way facilities of any kind , and with
its numerous prosperous hamlets
would be a paying investment.
NEW ROAD IS PLANNED.
The an ordinance is in the common
council at Milwaukee for a franchise
to a company which has a line pro
jected from Milwaukee to Geneva
Lake , and if the franchise is granted
it is stated that the line will be built
and ready to bring the people of the
southern part of the state to the next
state fair. Then Oshkosh and Fond
du Lac are to be connected by an elec
trical line , the company having been
just incorporated. This , would bring
the Green Bay line south as far as
Fond du Lac , and from there it will ,
in a very short time , be extended
southward through Washington coun
ty until it touches the Milwaukee lines
that are being extended northward.
Over in the central part of the state
a new Inie will be built next season ,
which will connect Madison with
Janesville , touching the cities In be
tween. This is one of the most pop
ulous portions of the state , and the
line is certain to become one of the
most valuable properties of its kind.
While the present plans of those back
of the road do not contemplate any
further extensions , it is reasonable to
suppose that this or another company
wil Ipush out in the direction of Be-
loit .only ten miles away , very soon
after the main line is completed. This
would bring it to the state line , where
it would be easy to connect with an
interurban line extending up through
Harvard and other cities from Chi
All this goes to show that within
the next three or four years the south
ern portion of Wisconsin will be grid-
ironed with the new system of trana-
"portation , giving the people of the
crossroads and isolated sections very
prompt and easy communication with
their home markets.
This Is what the promoters are aim-
Ing at. Looking ahead , they see the
time coming when the farm products
of the lighter kind will be transported
to market by electric cars stopping
at every farmstead for their load , and
thus saving the farmer the cost and
time of slow transportation with team.
Al lof thelines , projected have secured
their own right-of-way , which will
permit them to use their cars for
transporting freight as well as passen
FREIGHT ROADS BY NIGHT.
Those who are giving the most at
tention to these problems say that it
is only a matter of a few years , or
possibly months , when the lines which
during the day are used for passenger
traffic will after midnight transport
the farm produce to market , delivering
it fresh every morning for the con
sumer , saving the farmer and the gar
dener the long ride now necessary and
consequent loss of time. Nor will the
passenger service be eliminated when
the sun goes down or the clocks strike
midnight. A man connected with one
of the various lines now under way
said recently , in discussing the new
transportation , that inside of three
years sleeping cars would be run on
the electrical lines.
With the coming of the electrical
lines will come , say those who are
posted , an era of cheap transporta
tion. Lines now in use are well pat
ronized , though thus far the cost of
transportation has not been material
ly reduced , but the ability to get back
and forth every hour and ofttimes ev
ery half hour leads many to patrol nze
the electric lines exclusively , especial
ly when time is no particular object.
Still it Is asserted that the lines now
building will cut down the present
running time , so as to compete more
on even terms with the steam roads.
If this can be done and the fares re
duced there is no reason why the bulk
of the local traffic should not be * car
ried by the electric lines.
Even as it is , the ability to drop oft
right at one's door instead of riding
several miles beyond and then return
by horse power is a very attractive
proposition for those living within
easy distance of the line. It is-a per
fectly safe proposition that within five
years there will be a continuous elec
tric line from Green Bay to Chicago ,
and possibly the northern terminal
point may be many miles above Green
Bay to Chicago , and possibly the
northern terminal point may be many
miles above Green Bay. From this
main line will radiate short line feed
ers reaching out into the populous sec-
ions within easy reach.

WHEN for it. Sometimes it
is useful and important for a
baby to cry. Dr. L. Emmett Holt.New
York's best known authority on in
fants , in a remarkable little book call
ed "The Care and Feeding of Chil
dren" ( published by Appleton & Co. )
has a chapter on crying. Among oth
er instructive questions and answers
Cor mothers and nurses , Dr. Holt says :
When is crying useful ? In the new
ly born Infant the cry expands the
lungs , and it is necessary that it
should be repeated for a few minutes
ivery day in order to keep them well
How much crying is normal for a
very young baby ? From , fifteen to

What is the nature of this cry ? It
s loud and strong. Infants get red in

When is a cry abnormal ? When it

What is the cry of temper ? It is

What is the cry of illness ? This is
isually more of fretfulness and wor-
ying than a real cry , although cry-
ng is excited by very slight causes.
