sounds without. "Sacre. 1
Wat ze devil was up now!"
We both sal. breathing hard from
oir late exertions, listening anxiously,
yet with vastly differing emotions,
hope animating me that this was to
prove a capture, or, at least, that some
chance discovery by the officer visit
ing us would result in the-release of
the women below. Hut De Nova was
m an agony of apprehension, the full
peril of his position clear before him.
Wo heard the bare feet of the hurry
tag sailors patter along the deck, the
strident voice or Tuttle issuing :t few
final commands, and the faint sound
of oars in the water alongside. The
officer came slowly up the ladder, and
my heart sank as I heard him laugh
carelessly to the mate's greeting. I
could distinguish the sound of his
voice, but not the words utlered. and
in some way it impressed me with the
thought that the fellow was young, a
midshipman, possibly, who would
prove mere putty under Tuttle's ex
pert handling. The two went down
ihe companion-steps together in ap
parently amiable conversation, and
we could heard the low murmur of
voices as the crew hung over the rail
jesting with the men-o-war's men in
the boat below. My eyes met De
Nova's in the semi-darkness, and he
grinned, showing his teeth.
"Mossing ver' dangerous, monsieur."
he said, easifo". "Ze ol' fox he fool
zat kid."
I attempted no response, my mind al
ready sufficiently heavy from appre
hension. Oh, for just a word, merely
an opportu-'ty to cry out our story be
fore it was forever too late! De No-a
must have felt the struggle within me.
tor he stretched his legs across the
narrow passage leading to the door,
and I saw his hand thrust into his
coat pocket. Underneath his genial ve
neer he was oue to act upon occasion,
absolutely careless of the result. So I
waited in silence, my teeth set hard,
my hands clenched, as the last ves
tige of hope oozed slowly out of me.
They were scarcely ten minutes be
low, coming up chatting in rare good
fellowship, the officer clinging to the
rail, his feet on the ladder, while he
completed some story he had been
relating with much gusto. Then we
heard plainly the dip of oars, growing
gradually fainter in the distance, feet
pattered on the deck planks. Tuttle's
voice sounded from the bridge, and
the vessel began throbbing to the
steady chug of the screws. We were
safely under way again, pressing our
sharp bow into the fog-bank. Unable
o control mv weakness, I buried my (
face in my bands.
I do not know how long we sat there
motionless, De Nova staring blankly
at the vapor sweeping past the win
dow, and I with head lowered in de
pressio?. It was Tuttle himself, uiih
one arm in an improvised sung, who
slid open the door of the charthouse
and looked in upon us.
"This is your watch yet, De Nova."
he said, shortly, "and I need to doctor
up my arm a bit You're a dam hard
hitter. Mr. Stephens," no trace of an
ger in his voice, "but that's about the
last chance you'll have to kick up a
shindy on this vessel. You'll go below,
sir, an' stay there, unless we happen
to need you."
I stepped forth onto the open deck
in obedience to his gesture.
"Then I am no longer even in pre
tended command, but merely your
"Call it whatever suits you best."'
he returned, grimly. "The result will
be the same In any case. Well. De
Nova, what are you waitin' for?"
"I sink maybe you say w'at was it
ze navy man wanted?"
Tuttle's solemn countenance broke
into the semblance of a grin.
"Plug tobacco." he announced, suck
ing his lips with sudden enjoyment of
the joke. "Gave me the scare of my
life, but that's all it amounted to.
Hecn out cruisin for three months, an

In Which We Sail Due South.
As I sank down into the recesses of
a cushioned chair in the cabin, my
spirits at lowest ebb. 1 glanced up ai
the telltale compass we were already
headed due south.
Those days ami nights following,
while serving to bear us continually
deeper into the immense expanse of
water that concealed the mystery
awaiting us in the great South sea,
contained little of incident directly re
lating to this narrative. Day following
day that same wide circle of the sky
came down to unite with the circle of
the waters. It was almost as though
we remained motionless, "a painted
ship upon a painted ocean": only the
figures on the paper. Use pins on the
chart, the sharp stem cleaving the
waves asunder, and the oily wake
asteni leaving us aware of steady
progression through this trackless
desert of the sen.
We passed somewhat to the west
ward of Juan Fernandez, so far
out that only with a glass from the
foretop could the distant peaks be
dimly deciphered in blue, misty blots
against the sky. Already Tuttle had
banked the fires, and spread the Sea
Queen's canvas, reaching to the west
ward to get the most possible out of
the fresh breeze. The Sea Queen
changed motive power and appearance
as if by magic, the square yards hid
ing the jauntiness of her keel, and
concealing the rake of her masts, the
white sails bellowing out before tho
wind, sending her swooping forward
through the water like a great bird.
leaning over until at times her lee
rail was all awash with white foam
and her forward decks glistening with
Tuttle drove her recklessly, holding
on in spite of crackling wood and sails
threatening to tear loose from the
bolt-eyes, taking shrewd advantage of
each slant of wind, and lowering can
vas only when danger was deadly. He
had come into his own, he was at
home, and the rejuvenated Sea Queen
leaped forward at his will, as though
endowed with fresh life. He seemed
to understand her moods, her caprices.
as though he bad sailed her in every
sea, and I watched him test her. looa-

Lady Darlington became positively
afraid of him. dreading his approach,
shrinking from his address, yet not dar
ing to withdraw wholly from his pres
ence. His sole topic of conversation
was psychomancy. and every time she
endeavored to lead him to some more
pleasant subject he would return with
dogmatic persistence to that one rath
er dismal theme. His blatant self-conceit
saved him from realizing her utter
weariness, and he never seemed to
tire of his own unctuous, nasal tones.
Heavens, but the fellow was an insuf
ferable bore. Celeste would slip away
unobserved, bat her mistress and my
self had no means of escape. I re
mainc! quietly below for three days,
and even then was not released by
any forjnal word of mouth. I simply,
became so tired of the senseless im
prisonment that I mounted to the
deck, taking I-ady Darlington with me,
determined to be confined to the cabin
no longer except by physical force. De
Nova was upon tho bridge when we
emerged from the companion, but he
merely glanced at us curiously. Tut
tle. coming aft a little later, retained
sen.e enouuh to remain silent. The
time days passed below had thrown
me much into the society of both mis
tress and maid, although the frank
intimacy of that lirst conversation
with I.ady Darlington was never re
sumed. There seemed an intangible
barrier of reserve between us, al
though we talked freely enough re
garding our situation, the peculiarities
of Tattle, and the constantly changing
wonders of the deep. It was as it
neither of us quite dared to probe be
neath the surface, opening up once
more the depths each endeavored to
conceal; rather were we content to
drift as the tide ran.
I saw comparatively little of De
Nova, the second officer, during this
period, and gained an impression that
he was endeavoring to avoid meeting
me. Yet I ran across him twice in
company with Celeste, once in the
cabin, and again in the narrow deck
space overhanging the stern, and be
gan to hope vaguely that the girl was
winning him over to our interests.

In Which De Nova Speaks.
What now occurred came upon us
w-th such suddenness that I find it
difficult to relate the incidents in de
tail. We must have been below the
fiftieth degree of south latitude, and
about 1S. degrees west, with the wind
strong and occasionally puffing up
into squalls, bearing flakes of snow
which stung exposed flesh and left a
thin mantle of white along the decks.
It was Tuttle's watch below, and as I
paused in the protection of the com
panionway looking forward, while I
got my pipe going. I could see De
Nova on the bridge, wrapped up like a
mummy, and crouching well down be
hind the tarpaulins. AH about was a
wild sea scene, never to be looked
upon amid any other stretch of waters
on the globe a dull, dead picture of
utter desolation, of madly racing
waves, of green, sullen sea, of pale
blue sky, the very frost in the air ap
parent; a cold, drear expanse of mo
notonous distance wherever the eye
looked .a desert of water below, a
void of air above. Big Bill Anderson,
his head still bound up where I had
cracked him, slouched in the doorway
of the charthouse, staring aft, and a
moment later De Nova came lumber
ing down the steps from the bridge
and spoke with him for some earnest
ly. The boatswain finally went for
ward, clinging to a lifeline to keep
footing on the slippery deck, and the
second officer clawed along the weather-rail
until he reached the companion.

Mr. Miuard was waiting to represent

accompanied by his mother, who could
not speak a word of English. Mr.
Mlnard entered his appearance as the

The Jury brought in a verdict for

costs attached, made the judgment
for $95.35.
The prosecutor asked for a body ex

Judge Jones, to whom the petition was

of granting the execution, because of
the boy's age.
He made careful search to find
some authority by which he would

he would have refused to Issue the

of whatever Is unverifiable and unsup
