Within the space of five minutes I
had the whole gang at it. a profane,
shuttling crew enough, yet carrying
out my orders after a fashion, and
sufficiently cowed to be obedient. At
last 1 dispatched the starboard watch
below, and. leaving De Nova in charge
of the bridge, started back to the com

half protected, in the open door of the

"Yes." I answered, not altogether
happy over her evident pleasure. "The
Sea Queen has attained her farthest
southing. Are you glad?"
"Glad!" Her gloved bands sought
mine. "In all my life I was never bap

they were, nevertheless hurt me, and
perhaps my face exhibited it. Hei
"You cannot know how much I have
suffered on this voyage." she said, re
gretfully. "Only a woman could. My
heart cries out for relief, but it is not
because I wish to lose any friendship
formed on board."
"Yet that is what being homeward
bound must inevitably mean."
Her long lashes were uplifted, dis
closing the depths of those gray eyes.
"Not with me. Mr. Stephens; I
not a woman to forget."
In Which the Yacht Meets Disaster.
I have been endeavoring to recall
in sequence the occurrences of the
tluve days and nights following our
turning northward, but it is all chaos,
vague, confused an expanse of sleep
less hours, raging seas, snow, sleet,
and ice. in the midst of which we bat
tled for life in as desperately terrific
a light ae men ever waged against na
ture. I can see and feel It all clearly
enough, yet the incidents are so com
mingled that the separate days and
nights appear one continuous event,
without beginning or end. I hear the
ceaseless howl of the wind, the growl
of grinding ice. the smiting of tons of
water, the threshing of loosened can
va. the rattle of blocks aloft, the
thousand noises emitted by the strug
gling fabric under foot. I see the swirl
of snow; the crested seas, boiling in
madness; the gleam of pursuing ice
fields; the towering pinnacles of giant
bergs overhanging our mast-heads;
the flying clouds, and the settling
down about us of the ghostly frost fog.
1 feel the wild plunge down into the
hollow; the sickening, staggering ef
fort to climb up; the dizzy balancing
upon the crest, and that awful drop
again into the hell below!
No man on bord will ever know
how we made it; how we ever found
pas3se ihrough those wind-lashed
LAST VOYAGE OF
Caught Lady Darlington More Closely to me, Helping Her Climb th
channels; how we ever kept upright
under the pounding of that sea; how
the Sea Queen ever shook her trem
bling decks free from the tons of ice
and water, and rose staggering to the
crest. Once our engines broke, and
for two hours wo rolled helplessly,
while McKnight and the Chilean tin
kered at the damaged machinery, and
the great waves buried us, and
smashed the chartbouse Into frag
ments. Once the rudder-chains be
came fouled with ice, and we swung
into the trough of the sea hurled over
until our lower yards trailed in the
water and half the yacht shivered be
neath the smother, we hanging on for
our lives, drenched and buffeted by
the waves. The jib-boom snapped like
a pipestem. and a huge, ugly hole was
ripped out of the forward bulwarks.
Up to the neck In ley water we
chopped away the raffle, and flung it
overboard. Gustafson. shrieking wild
ly for help, went with the litter, while
his mates bore Symes below groaning
from a broken leg.
Mersiful heavens, how that Ice came
down, pursuing us like the very Fiend!
Once it pressed so closely against our
quarter that the sea, rebounding from
off its front, boarded us, sweeping aft
in a vast wall. It caught Dade open
ing the companion door, hurled him
smothering backward and flooded the
cabin a foot deep in Icy water. Yet
we held to it, our eyes aching, our
limbs frozen, our oilskins stiff with
ice, the exposed flesh of our faces one
festering frostbite, bruised by the
shocks, half dead from fatigue, dizzy
from the battle. Hut it was no sea
manship which saved us; it was a
merciful Providence, for at times the
smother was so thick we ran into it
blindly, not daring to broach to with
all that Ice after us. driven by the
wind, and not knowing what was ten
yards ahead, or ten yards behind.
During all that time I scarcely left
the deck, although De Nova served his
-watch on the bridge in the flying spray.
Dade fed me as best ho could, and
what brief snatches of sleep I caught
were on the divan in the cabin, my icy
clothes drying on my body. 1 saw
nothing of the women; there was no
nine, no opportunity. I doubt if eith
er could havo kept upright amid the
awful pitching of the yacht, for I was
obliged myself to creep from one
hand-grasp to another. So I saw noth
ing of the ladies, but Dade succeeded
in taking them food cold provender,
for the galley was wave-lashed, the
cook driven below although how the
iid ever managed it is a mystery, and
he n ported that Celeste clung to her
hunk, sick and frightened, but that
Lady Darlington was about and
dressed whenever ho went in.
Some time during the third day the
wind had blown itself out. or else we
had b?on driven beyond the sweep of
it Anyhow, it died down Into faint
puffs, but the sea remained heavy, the
fog thickening as the gale ceased.
This curtain, coupled with the sparse
light there was, left the decks so
dark that we attempted little clearing
up. merely pointing the yacht's nose
more directly northward at half-speed,
trusting the Almigh'.y to furnish us
with clear water. Indeed, there was
nothing else to do with that ice-pack
back of us, and the fierce seas pound
ing our poop. Besides. I had come to
the end of my endurance, and when
De Nova came limping forward, hang
ing to the life-line, to take his watch,
I crept below more dead than alive,
and clawed my way across the cabin.
Lady Darlington stood braced in her
doorway, yet for the life of me I
could not speak, although I tried my
head nodded on my shoulders, and 1
fell forward across my bunk, asleep
before I even struck the mattress.
Dade said she made him pull off my
boots and loosen my muffler, stand
ing over him until it was done.
It was not sleep it was more like
death, for I never stirred or knew
anything. I lay exactly as I fell, utter
ly insensible to either noise or motion.
It was Dade's vigorous shaking1 that
finally aroused me, nor did he desist
until he had me sitting up in the bunk,
my eyes wide open.
"What time is it, Dade?"
"Two o'clock, sir."
"No, sir, afternoon; but the fog Is
that thick outside you can't see your

Why didn't you call me earlier?"
"Mr. De Nova told me to let you He,
sir; I guess the lady asked him to
I had pulled on my boots, and was
standing up, gazing out through the
door into the cabin, where Dade still
remained, watching to see that I did
not go back to sleep again. Suddenly
there came a tremendous shock which
sent me sprawling forward, and flung
Dade headlong against the wall. As
I struck the deck a thunderous crash
and roar sounded forward; the stern
of the vessel seemed to spring upward
into the air. sliding us both down
against the front of the cabin. In
stantly there followed two muffled re
ports, accompanied by a further up
tilting of the stern. Everything loose
came tumbling down upon us, and, as
I pulled myself to my knees, I found
the deck slanting upward like the
steep side of a hill.
"Oh. Lord, sir, what's been done?"
"We've hit something hard; Ice,
likely. Jump, now, and help me get
out the women."
The awful, sickening poise of the
stricken boat, swinging stern-up to the
motion of the waves, was enough to
shatter the courage of any man, and
I could read speechless terror in
Dade's face. Yet tho lad stayed
with me, and together we clambered
up the incline of the deck, gripping at
the table to help us. The door of the
Put Happy End to Quarrel
Tactful Act That Reconciled
Friends Long Parted.
The passenger on the car looked
slightly alarmed, investigation was
proving that he had no smaller change
than a five-dollar bill. He offered it
to the conductor in vain.
"Can't make the change." said the
autocrat, reaching for the bell rope.
The passenger started meekly for
the door. A man in front ef him stood
up suddenly and said: "Let me pay
your fare, John."
The other passengers looked re
lieved, but Instead of accepting the
happy offer, John scowled darkly at
the speaker, to the great surprise of
the observers, and evidently would
have refused to accept the favor had
not the other man insistently closed
the deal with the conductor, in spite
of John's protest, all the time keep
ing up a low conversation with John.
The scowl slowly melted from John's
brow, and soon the two men were
seated side by side, chatting con
genially. After John left the car. the stranger
after-cabin was either locked or had
become stuck; I did not wait to learn
which, but burst it open with a swift,
heavy kick. The light streamed in
upon a scene of chaos overturned
furniture " and broken glass. Celeste
lay in one corner screaming hysteric
ally; I-ady Darlington was upon her
knees, holding herself partially erect
by clasping the brass rail of the bed.
"Quick!" I cried, before either could
speak. "Gather up all the warm cloth
ing you can reach. We must get on
deck. Here, let me help you!"
We were scarcely a minute at the
task; and the four of us, laden with
apparel, slid and scrambled down the
slope of cabin floor to the companion-
steps. Here I caugbt Lady uarungton
more closely to me, helping her climb
the inverted stairs. Her face was pale,
her eyes fearless.
"What is it? What has happened?"
"I hardly know myself; only that
we have hit something and are badly
It was like night on deck, the en
veloping fog so dense that a human
form was indistinguishable five feet
away. Fortunately but little wind
stirred, and the sea had gone down. I
could distinguish De Nova's voice as
he sang out a sharp order. I hollowed
my hands, and bailed. A dim smudge
leaned over the rail above, and peered
"Wras zat you, monsieur?"
"Ay. with the women. What Is It,
De Nova, a total smash?"
"By gar, oui! Ze whole bow cave In;
ze deA crush to ze main-hatch; ze
after-bulkhead was ze only sing w'at
hold us up. Sacrc, It not hold long."
I grasped the entire situation in
stantly, realizing the desperate need
of haste, of cool, intelligent command.
"Send a man down here to help
Dade tote up provisions. Jump live
ly, now: cet biscuits and canned
goods, my lads, and whatever blankets
you can find. Hustle for your lives!
Now, De Nova, reach over, and help
the women up easy; that's right."
I held tightly to my lady, clinging to
the rail, as I crept across. The black,
shapeless figures of several men,
whose faces I could not distinguish in
the gloom, were clambering about the
"Ay, ay. sir."
"What have you got?"
"Oars, mast, canvas, and fresh wa
ter." I reached forward to assure myself
that the rudder had been properly
shipped, and the plugs securely
"All right; hero come the provi
sions. Dump them in anywhere, lads.
Yes, go back for another load, but
for God's sake hurry! Do Nova, help
me stow the women; gently, but
quickly now. Stand by, all of you.
Here Is the rest of the provender.
Now tumble In, lads, and let fall. Ease
her off, ease her off. you fools!"
The black smudge dropped down
ward, and leaning far over the slant
ing rail T could see it strike the water
and ride free. The sodden, wrecked
hull beneath me rose and fell with a
heavy, sickening motion which brought
the heart up into my throat
"Are those all the living men left,
Mr. De Nova?" I called down, for the
first time realizing how few they were.
"Zey was all I know."
Another voice spoke, gruff from ex
citement. "The fellows for'ard had no chance,
sir; all alive are here."
I swung over the side, and shot
down the line into the boat.
"Cast off, then. Oars, men! the
yacht Is going under."
With a single sweep of the hastily
plied blades we were beyond sight of
the plunging hull, yet we had not
taken half a dozen utrokes before we
were tossed roughly by a sudden con
vulsion of the sea.
"My God. she's gone!" shouted a
All I could distinguish within the
boat were the two women next me at

in her arms, and my lady staring into
