By hc.ivon, for her sake, it for no
other reason. I would play the man!
Ay, anil I comprehended exactly what
such resolve would cost realized ful
ly what that mongrel crew would say
.and do the moment their ghostly ter
mors fled, and they knew I had Riven
up search for the treasure. I should
have to command by brute force, by
threat and blow. There would be
mutiny aboard for every league until
we made port. I knew the nature of
that sea-scum forward how they
"would whine and curse, how they
would hate me for failing to hold
them to their course in face of death!
Well, let them hate; my love was
"worth by far the more, and the life
nnd honor of Lady Darlington ont--wolshed
all else on board ay. and the
treasure of the Donna Isabel! "Im
plicitly" I saw her eyes again as she
said it, and sprang to the deck, fum
bling in the darkness for the latch of
The main cabin was dimly lighted
.and chill, the fire in the stove low. I
paused to rattle it, and add a few
lumps of coal from the scuttle stand
ing near by. In spite of surrounding
comforts what a grim, inhospitable
place this was for any woman like
her! The very snugness of the cabin
served only to emphasize the gloom
and peril without, the frightful polar
mystery which surrounded us, which
drives men mad amid its awful dis
tances, its shrouded silence.
Suddenly, directly opposite where I
etood, I saw it again that same
shapeless, white, gliding figure. An
Instant only I stood rooted to the spot,
xny blood like ice, my eyes full of hor
ror. Then the swift reaction came,
the reserve courage of a man ashamed
of such weakness, and I leaped
straight toward the misty object, grap
pling at It with my hands. I touched
nothing but air. falling headlong with
a violence Jarring the entire cabin,
and overthrowing a chair crashing to
the deck. Dazed, confused, I stag
gered to my knees, staring about into
the dim shadows. A white-draped
figuro was at my very elbow, and I
sprang to my feet, only to take a
quick step backward, grasping at the
table, as I recognized Lady Darling
ton. "Good God! was that you?" 1 gasped,
the horror still possessing me.
"This certainly is." she answered,
swiftly. "But what do you mean?
What has occurred?"
"I hardly know," and I looked about
me, and then into her face, breathing
Jieavily. "I seem unable to separate
the real from the unreal. I am half
afraid I am losing my mind. Lady
Darlington, it is not only the crew for
Avard who are seeing ghosts on board.
I laughed at my experience before, be
lieving it a mere illusion that could
never occur again. In that spirit I
told you about seeing a white, misty
1 figure in this cabin the night after
Tuttle died. It vanished like a wreath
of smoke, and daylight made me be
lieve the vision was born of a tired
brain. But 1 have seen it again now
yonder, as plainly as I can see you.
It was no dream, no imagination; yet
when I sought to grasp the thing, my
fingers encountered nothing but air."
1 saw her hands tremble, her white
face turned whither I pointed; but she
bad not beheld what I had, and her
mind remained clear.
"What was It you saw?"
"A shapeless white figure, misty,
vanishing like a bubble."
"Yonder, you say? just where you
law it before?"
I had not thought of that, yet it was
true there, beside Tuttle's door. An
Instant she stood motionless, her eyes
searching the dim corners of the cab
In. -as though tracing some suspicion
awakened within her mind. Suddenly
she clasped my ana.

"Damn You, McKnlght,
"We do not believe In ghosts, Mr.
Stephens, you and I." her voice grow
ing firmer with conviction. "Our edu
cation and training make such a con
ception impossible. There is a natural
cause for this, a reason, an actual
presence back of the shadow. There
must be, and we must find it. Where
did you stand when you saw this ap
parition?" I stepped back to the spot beside
the stove, realizing that she still clung
tightly to mo.
"Here, and I lifted my eyes like

breath on my cheek, her fingers clutch
ing my arm.
"Why why that Is a mirror you are
looking into! See! What is it re

I locato the spot. Oh, I see now the

he killed Mr. Tuttle, and now seeks to
accomplish the same end with you.
What are you going to do?"
"Trace him down. The last time
the fellow went directly from here to
the forecastle. There must be a
passageway from stem to stern."
She caught me as I turned, her gray
eyes wide with apprehension.
"You will take mo with you?"
"That will be impossible. Lady Dar
lington. I know nothing regarding
this passage amidships, but it must
surely lead through the coal bunkers
and tho engine room."
"But but I cannot let you go
alone," utterly forgetting to conceal
her agitation. "Truly. I could not bear
to do it. Whoever this man may be
ho will become desperate when cor
nered. Your very life will bo In dan
ger." "And you really care?" my hand
clasping hers, my eyes eagerly search
ing the gray depths.
"Yes, I care." making no effort to
free herself; "why should I not?
Think what our condition would be if
you were not on board. Yet that is
not all;. I care because I value your
life, your friendship. Little as I can
do. let me, at least, be near you."
"You are near me," said I, utterly
forgetful of circumstances in the sud
den rush of passion, "always near me,
because my thoughts are with you. my
sole purpose in life to serve you."
The gray eyes fell Instantly; the
clasping hand was withdrawn and
pressed to her forehead.
"I I will try to do as you wish,"
she faltered, "but are you armed?"
"Not now, but I will get a revolver
from my stateroom. First, let me
help you to your cabin."
She permitted my guidance without
a word of protest, only glancing once
up into my faco as she put a question.
"You will return here? you will let
me know at once what you discover?
Promise me this."
"I promise; and more, I will pledge
myself to be cautious, so do not
I procured my revolver, turned the
light low once more in the main cabin,
and then stole silently into the narrow
passageway leading forward. There
was no light in the pantry, but the
faint reflection from the cabin enabled
me to distinguish the more prominent
outlines. A form lay outstretched on
a locker, and I bent over It silently.
It was Dade, curled up on his side and
sound asleep. There was no doubt
about the reality of his slumber; the
fellow was not shamming, and I drew
back, leaving kirn undisturbed, in
Lie 6UI11" I Panted.
alley-way leading forward was ex
tremely narrow, yet of a height suffi
cient to afford comparatively easy
passage had it only been lighted. Sud
denly a faint glow appeared ahead,
and a moment later I slipped cau
tiously through a small bulkhead door
standing ajar, into a low, square room,
containing six bunks arranged In tiers
of two. A slush lamp swung from a
blackened beam, and various articles
of wearing apparel dangled from
hooks. I peered into the bunks, dis
covering three occupied, the uncon
scious sleepers being Cooky, the
smooth-faced Chilean, and the gunner,
a Swede named Gustafson. None
awoke under my scrutiny, although
the Chilean was talking In his sleep
and threshing his arms about as if In
nightmare. I bent down, looking at
him more closely, attracted by some
thing oddly familiar in the upturned
features. By all the gods, the fellow
was Lieut. Juan Sanchez, his
long mustaches shaven, and look
ing ten years younger! It was so odd
a thing, this sudden renewal of a con
troversy originating thousands of
leagues away, that I nearly laughed
outright, forgetting for tho instant the
serious purpose bringing me there.
Yet this surprising discovery of
Sanchez aboard seemed of compara
tively little importance, and was as
quickly dismissed. The narrow bulk
head door leading forward was tight
ly closed, and in that dim light I had
to hunt for it, so perfectly was it fitted
into place. When discovered, how
ever, it proved to be unfastened, and I
stepped forth into an emptied coal
bunker, whence I could look straight
forward along the glowing boilers into
the engine room. I advanced carefully
along the slight open space until I
came upon the squad of firemen and
big Bill Anderson. The latter shaded
his eyes, staring at me as though he
mistook me for another ghost, but I
took the initiative.
"I have been investigating the ar
rangement of things below, Anderson."
I said, in explanation; "rather odd
way in which the yacht Is cut up. Did
you know there was a passage leading
all the way aft?"
The boatswain shook his head, too
surly naturally to answer.
"Well, possibly you know whether
or not a similar passage leads forward
into the forecastle?"
"There's a bulkhead door over
there," he returned. Indicating by
a gesture a spot concealed by the
donkey pump, "but 1 don't know

The women, taking their tea by the
club window, talked.
"They have a girl prompter at the
Garrick theater." said one. "The man

"It comes out under the forecastle,
sir," broke In a coal heaver named
Davis. "Leastwise there's a trap In
the deck there, with a ladder leadin'
"I'll finish the trip through, then,

He waved his big hairy hand in the
direction of the boilers.
"Went to his bunk to He down for
an hour; he was about all in."
"Are you capable of standing watch
alone In an engine room?"
The fellow grinned, his bulldog jaw
"Well. I've had to do It on this trip
whether I'm capable or not. That
fellow can't stand it in here night an'
day without no rest. I know how to
start an stop her, an watch the wa

wrong he's easy enough called."
So it was McKnignt who was play
ing the antics of a ghost on board;
McKnight who had discovered that
unusual passageway through the bulk
heads; McKnight who had conceived
the idea that in this manner be could
frighten us into turning back. Well,
truly, I did not altogether blame the
man, and, now that my own fear of
the supernatural was allayed, did not
feel any desire to punish him severely.
Still, his masquerade must stop be
fore he thoroughly demoralized the
crew, frightening them beyond all
my power of control.
I discovered the door concealed be
hind the donkey engine, left It slightly
ajar behind me. and stepped forward
into the black passage. I bad groped
along to the very foot of the ladder,
feeling nothing but bare walls, and
hearing no sound except the slush of
bilge water, when suddenly an inar
ticulate cry sounded almost directly
above; something, a hatch cover pos
sibly, seemed to settle into place, and
the ladder shook under my hand. I
drew back a step, permitting the fel
low to come down until be reached
the floor. My eyes, accustomed to the
gloom, enabled me to dimly perceive
his shape. It was no more than a
formless smudge he made, but I
struck straight for what seemed to Toe
the head, and landed with a force that
dropped him like a log. In an Instant
I was on top, clasping the canvas
sheet he wore tightly about his arms,
and throttling him against the deck.
He fought like a wild bull for a mo
ment, thoroughly frightened and
whimpering, dazed by the suddenness
of attack, yet following the animal
instinct of a struggle for life.
"Damn you. McKnight. lie still!" I
panted. "I've got you, and you might
just as well take your medicine, my
man. Yes. that's a gun you feel, and
I know how to use 1L So you're the
ghost of the Sea Queen, are you? I
guess you know what this means if I

lease my grip on his throat, flinging
back the canvas from his head.
"Sit up. Well, I'll tell you, McKnight

What was I to do with the man? In
truth there was little I dared to do
ander the circumstances.
"Now see here, McKnight," I said,
soberly, "you quit this thing for good
and all; if there is any more ghost
walking done on the Sea Queen FH

men. Besides, there's no use resort

And oa that November sight, while
every one at Hilltop, as the manor
house was called, slept and dreamed,
the first snow of the season came fall
ing softly down, and when day dawned
a pure white mantle covered the earth
for miles around. One person In par
ticular at Hilltop hailed the snow with
delight She had made two or three
circles of the house before she ap
peared at the breakfast table and said
to her widowed mother:
"It's just what I have been waiting
for. I shall kill as many as 20 rab
bits to-day. They were running
about last night, and left a thousand
tracks. Oh, mother, I wish you loved
to tramp about in the snow and fall
down and roll over and get up and
walk three or four miles and shoot
rabbits and and be a Nimrod."
The widow Warden looked up at the
20-year-old daughter with an Indulgent
smile and shook her head. There were
good sisters who whispered that Miss
Jeannie was a bit of a hoyden. She
fished, hunted, prospected, rode horse
back, rowed, swam, and she didn't
know how to sew or cook. When she
found a hole in the heel of her stock
ing or a rip in her dress she care
fully hung the article on the back of a
chair for some one else to mend. If
other girls said she was a hoyden all
the young men said she was good look
ing, and she didn't seem to care either
Half an hour after she had bolted
her breakfast, the girl was out In her
short skirt and leggings, and with her
gun on her shoulder, she picked out a
rabbit track she knew and followed
it toward the woods back of the house.
If that rabbit had known of the pres
ence of the bloodthirsty girl In the
house he would have headed for the
north pole instead of his home under
a brush heap, but as he didn't know,
he wandered over half the county and
finally reached home and went to
sleep. He was awakened by footsteps
softly approaching his hiding place.
Miss Jeannie Stood Looking and
He peeped out and saw a girl with red
cheeks, hazel eyes and brown hair.
There was the report of a gun and

other rabbit had squealed when he felt
the shot; this one raised his voice in

It was not a rabbit at all. but a small
dog, and he ran around In circles as be
yelped. Miss Jeannie stood looking and
wondering when a young man appeared
through the trees beyond. He, also, was
a Nimrod; he, also, had a slain hare
on his back. While he was yet 30 feet
away, he called out:
"Now, then, young fellow, why didn't
you wait and assassinate me! You
either shot my dog on purpose, or else

As Miss Jeannie was wearing a
round fur cap and a short Jacket the
mistake was pardonable.
"If you can't tell a dog from a rab

girl, as the dog ceased to yelp, and
she moved from the underbrush which

An object lesson In the utilization
of peat bogs has for the last few years
been carried on in northeastern Ger
many. Some 16,000 acres of moor
land, known as the Friedeburg bogs,
are being reclaimed and the peat used
for the supply of electric power. The
land is cultivated by settlers, who at
the same time cut peat and sell it to
the electrical supply company, with
works on an Island in the middle of
the bog. It is expected that this cen
tral power station will supply elec
tricity for light and power for a re
gioa ot 30 miles radius. Already It
supplies electric light to Emden, WU

towns and cities.

think most of the shot missed Foxy.

that the stranger was a good looking

give her name, and by that time the
wounded dog had crawled to her feet
and was asking her forgiveness for be

he had received five or six of the lead
"Are you a competent dog doctor?"
Miss Jeannie asked.
"Well er no," blushed the young
"But I am, though I have no dog at

and the dog taken good care of for
some days. I shot him, and I'll take
him home with me and cure him."
"But you didn't meaa to shoot him.

"May putter around and do Just the
wrong thing." she finished. "The dog
shall go home with me, and In a week
I shall have him as well as ever. Mr.
Meadows, care must be taken not to

"Gracious, no! If Foxy should pine
for me. would he have a relapse? You
know he has been my constant com
panion for the last three years."
Miss Jeannie looked him straight la
the eyes until he dropped his and then
"If you are not afraid of being as
sassinated by the young fellow' yoa
might call In a day or two and see how
Foxy Is getting along. Oh, but you
needn't call after all. You may telephone.-"
"But Foxy will want to see me and
I him. If you don't mind "
"Well, if I'm not at home. Foxy will
be in the kennel."
Foxy turned out to he a dog that
knew a thing or two. He gave one
look at bis master, which might have
been accompanied by a wink, and then
trotted off with the girl, who had given
up any further hunting for the day.
At the house the dog was tied up and
two pellets picked out ..of his neck
by the aid of a penknife, and from
thence on his attitude was that of a
dog having a mission. .
On the afternoon of the second day,
Mr. Meadows appeared and was intro
duced to the mother though he had
very little conversation with her. The
talk was mostly between him and M13S
Jeannie. and it was dog talk. The
kennel was visited, the patient Inter
viewed, and rabbit hunting was dis
cussed from various standpoints. Foxy
showed no disposition to follow his
master home, and the master was
secretly glad of It
"If I had a girl." said the cook la
the kitchen to herself, after the young
man had departed "If I had a girl,
which I haven't got, and she should
go hunting and shoot a dog belonging
to a fine young man, and that fine
young man should call and see about
And she shook her head and looked
wise and said no more until next time.
Mr. Meadows called again. He was
passing and thought he would ask
about Foxy. He called a third time
and a fourth and he astonished his
uncle by telling him how he loved the
country In winter, and though Foxy
got well the calling did not cease.
When it had settled down Into a
regular thing the cook sighed and
6hook her head and said:
