CHAPTER XV. Continued.
The slight change of voice per
ceptible in this final sentence might
have excused the utterance of the
ji:e.sliou trembling on my lips, yet I
.set my leelh. and remained silent.
'11 is odd how our lives are influ
enced," she continued, thoughtfully.
"1 feel that the charm of the sea has
been the one great impelling force
which has molded mine. I wonder i3
it destined always to be so? Are these
,waters oven now bearing me on as
jFatc wills? Ever since 1 can reinem
l.er 1 have permitted the ocean to
.t'.!.o that place in my heart which,
perhaps, should be otherwise occu
pied. It has been my master, my
strongest love. Hut I must not think
this, much less say it." hastily awak
ening, and pointing forward. "See, Mr.
Stephens, how those clouds and the
waters blend yonder in :;uch fantastic
forms; they appear an army of sheeted
gnosis bearing down to block our
passage into the Polar sea."
1 looked in the direction indicated,
scarcely noting the phenomena, but
wondering what was the real meaning
concealed behind her veiled utterance.
In truth Lady Darlington was not "a
.woman easily interpreted. She was
by no means a creature of moods, yet
behind her effort at outward cheer
fulness I was constantly aware of
something hidden, some haunting
memory r the past, more to be
dreaded even than her present envir
onment. . Sometimes I even thought she delib
erately played with mo; yet this was
not so. There was nothing of tho co
1 quelle in her nature, nothing of pur
(poscful deceit in cilhor words or ac
jtion. and I cast the unworthy thought
ifrom me with the indignation it de-
J. served. Still, her method was most
.strange, most peculiar. Indeed, she
fwas like two women, ever keeping me
on the qui vive, alive with expectancy.
yet never quite bringing to me that
jopen-heartcdness I so much desired.
One second, as though by purest acci
dent, I looked down into her soul; the
next I saw nothing but the outer cov
ering. Without in tho least meaning
to be so she became a teasing puzzle,
'"an enigma of womanhood, before
, whom I was beginning to worship, un
able to analyze even my own feelings,
Hence it was that on this day I re

the lady ouiy, for his glance never met

Her sympathetic face whitened, the
expression of her eyes changiug in
stantly. "U'liat what do you mean, Mr. Tut
tle? Aro we in any special danger?-'
. "fn the midst of life we are in
death. What is man that tlmn nrt

) gaunt form outlined against the gray
ky without as he pushed back the
companion door. Lady Darlington
watched his disappearance with parted

"The fellow has gone crazy over his

explain. "Do not permit such folly

"Some vision of his insanity, no

Her fingers pressed tightly upon my
''Hut if he is really insane how much
more dangerous it makes our position!
Do you really think he is?"
"Only along that one line. Lady
Darlington." my voice growing firm
with conviction. "Otherwise he seems
as sane as most men. We must humor
him to that extent, but regarding all
other matters there is no occasion for
you to worry. The man is a magnifi
cent seaman, and handles the Sea
Queen with remarkable skill. He will
bring us out safely, and you must not
permit his prophecies of disas'ter to
influence your mind they are only the
ravings of a diseased brain."
I do not know how much of what I
said she actually believed, jet as I
talked on in apparent confidence her
expression gradually changed, and
finally 1 had Celeste bring her wraps,
and i escorted her forth upon deck.
The fresh, slinging air soon served to
drive from her brain the last vestige
of terror, although at first she watched
Tuttle on the bridge very closely. How
ever, the fellow had left his weird
fancies ail below, and his sharp or
ders, coupled with the able manner in
which he sailed the vessel, rapidly
brought back even my own evaporated
Lady Darlington did not appear
again after supper, although Celeste
sat in the main cabin and chatted vi
vaciously with De Nova while he ate.
They appeared so dceplj- engrossed in
each other that I finally took my pipe
and went on deck, leaving them undis
turbed, their laughter echoing to my
ears as I slid to the companion door.
There was a taste of snow in the
wintry air delicate, scattered, whirl
ing Hakes that cut the exposed flesh
like needles, while the wind whistled
through the frozen rigging in shrill
music. The decks were as gloomy and
dark as the surrounding sea was deso
late and gray, the endless vista of cir
cling water and sky merely merging
imperceptibly into the haze of dis
tance everywhere the white-capped
waves frantically chasing each other,
crest following crest, the deep hollows
between as black as death.
It got upon my nerves at last, and I
went below, striving manfully to shake
off all memory of the depressing pic
ture. Ten minutes later I was secure
ly braced in my bunk, so soundly sleep
ing I forgot to dream.
I could never tell what awoke me;
some strange noise, no doubt, for I sat
straight up, staring through the black
ness toward the closed door. Almost
at the very instant I heard the smash
of glass in the main cabin. I was only
partially undressed, and with one
spring was at the latch, the fierce
pitching of the yacht making me in
stantly apprehensive of accident At
tho first glance I perceived nothing
unusual under the dim light, then I
saw a man sprawling on the floor in
midst of a litter of glass from a
broken mirror. I leaped across to
ward the fellow, twisting my hand into
the collar of his pea-jacket, and whirl
ing him face upward to the light. It
was Tuttle, and he shrank away from
me cowering like a whipped cur, his
hands thrust out, his eyes staring. It
was an appalling face, ghastly, terror
stricken. "What is it. Mr. Tuttle?"
Oh. Christ! Christ!" he shrieked.
apparently never seeing me at all. his
teeth cnashinc. a. foam on his Hns. "I
saw it again right over there! But
I killed that one! I killed that one!
It will go back to hell ahead of me!
Oh, God! there's another! Another,
but I'll kill that one. too!"
Straight toward me be came with I
the fierce, unexpected leap of a wild
animal. Half-dazed I grappled him. It
was the contest of man against
beast, for he fought clawing and snap
ping, snarling forth curses. The ne
cessity of saving myself stiffened- me
to it, and I struck out hastily, landing
twice before we came to the grip. It
seemed to me he possessed the
strength of a dozen men. yet I got my
fingers in his neckband, and we went
crashing down together on the deck.
As we struck he went suddenly limp,
his fingers shaking, his eyes staring
up dully at the light. I held him thus
in my grip an instant, suspecting some
trick; then, as he never moved, I drew
him tip until his shoulders rested
against the support of a chair.
"What is it. man?" I questioned, anx
iously. "What has happened? Are
Ho made no response, gave not the
slightest sign that he even heard me.
I poured out a glass of liquor, held it
to his lips, and he gulped it down, but
seemingly in a stupor.
"Come along." I said, sternly, realiz
ing that my will must dominate his, if
I would move him to action. "I am
going to take you to your berth, and
make you lie down. You are sick, and
need rest. Get up, now."
He attempted no resistance as I
lifted him, even clinging to the chair
for support, his entire body shaking
like a jelly fish. I braced him in
through the open door, tumbled him
over into the buuk, and he lay there,
staring straight up with unwinking
eyes, his face as j-ellow as parchment.
He was completely dressed for the
deck, his pea-jacket buttoned to the
chin, his heavy sea-boots on. 1
loosened the one, drew off the others,
shut the door, and left him there alone.
It was clear enough he had again be

again into the main cabin, winding a
muffler about my throat, a vision in

to keep from falling.
When All Else Is Forgotten, Those
Linger in the Memory.
You can't forget, no matter how
bard you may try, for your old home,
the one you first knew, is so deeply
impressed upon your mind that all the j
glories, the riches and the blandish
ments of modern times cannot blot the
picture out, and in spite of all you go
back to it by the memory route, and
linger there often, and more often as
the years gather around you.
That is why you like to read of the
old days, even though you would not
have them return.

your old home, and of your visits to

sickening plunge, and her eyes opened
in apprehension. I caught her arm firm
ly. "Truly, believe me, there is no
danger. Mr. Tuttle has been suddenly
taken ill, and I am going to relieve
him on watch. You have confidence in
me, have you not?"
Her eyes searched my face earnest
ly, the gray depths full of anxiety.
"Then now is the time to show It.
I shall remain on deck, probably, until
morning. I wish you to go back, lie
down and rest. Let me assist you to
return to your stateroom."
I held her closely to me, so closely
I could feel the throb of her breathing,
the warmth of her flesh, realizing that
she was clinging to me in utter forget

draw away slightly, yet even then

hands clasping my arm, her eyet

"You have told me all?"
"All of the slightest importance; 1

gone to his berth." I explained briefly.
"I will serve out his watch. What

"Sou'-sou'-east by sou, sir."
I glanced inquiringly at the compass

seas with my glasses. There was no

air was sufficient proof of plenty not

At four o'clock, the sky already be

minutes later, still rubbing the sleep
out of his eyes, but became wide
