over-toppini; the height of the peaked
forecastle. That was a grim thing to
meet with in those waters.

It was a slippery, dangerous perch,
the vessel plunging somewhat, but the
upper ice was slightly powdered with
snow, yielding a little purchase, and I
finally discovered a brace for my feet
which enabled me to leach down and
assist .lohtksou to scramble up beside
me. Fortunately the bulwarks were
not so high proportionately as wide,
and we succeeded in sliding over
them, coming down rather heavily on
the solid deck. Here tlie snow made
walking possible, although underneath
t!-e ice was thick and smooth, com
pelling caution. All forward was a ter
rible rafllc of wreckage, a jumbled
mass of tangled spars, with the great
topmast and all its hamper right
where it had fallen, a portion of tlie
port bulwark smashed flat. A hum
mock of ice rose like a great hill from
abaft the butt of the foremast, which
stuck up maybe :!0 feet, clear over the
forecastle deck, leaving everything
shapeless and grotesque. Where the
slope was steepest, the wind had swept

in, like a painted pictuie, was the fully
revealed body of a man. 1 never saw
any sight more grewsome than that
ice-shrouded ligure; the arms out
stretched, the short, black beard ren
dering more ghastly the white, dead
face. I gripped mv hands onto John
son's shoulder, and he was shaking
like an aspen, his own face colorless
in the moonshine. I wheeled him

uneasy glances backward over his
shoulder. The deck was clearer of

gap in the port bulwarks amidships
showing where the wreckage had
probably been swept overboard. The
mainmast had been ripped out. leav-
"Holy Mother of God!" and De No
va, in his excitement, danced about
recklessly, forgetting the slipperiness
of deck underfoot. "It was ze treas

pesos! Sacre dam'!
It does not appear possible that I
perceived it all, but now, looking back,
I can recall the attitude of every man
as this revelation of the vessel's iden
tity was swiftly borne in upon his con
sciousness. Sanchez sank affrighted
ly to his knees, fingering the beads
of a rosary, his lips muttering inar
ticulate fragments of prayer; Dade
stared, white-faced and trembling, his
mouth wide open: Kelly jerked his
cap from off his red hair and swung
it over his head with a r?Iid yell;
Johnson never stirred, a motionless
statue, his lips compressed; the negro
joined De Nova, his eyes rolling, his
great feet pounding the snow; while
McKnight grabbed the ax from Kel
ly's heedless Cngers and began slash
ing at the door. As for myself, at
the instant everything was chaos. Tut
tle was right, then; he had seen all
that he said; our voyage had not been
causeless, a search after a will-oM he
wisp; the sacrifices, suffering, loss of
these past months, were not all in
vain. Out of Antarctic solitudes, re

"She is certainly a relic." I paused inscription, and struggle bark- tn a
conception of reality. It was Kelly's
long enough to say. "one of the old
timers in these seas. From the look
of her she must have been locked up
in the ice south there for a century."
"Do you expect to sail her north
ward?" "I hardly know yet what to expect;
that remains to be seen. She seems
to ride the water stanchly enough and
there is fully 30 feet of mast standing
yonder. Anyhow, this deck at pres

will have a decent place in which to

I will be back to you shortly. Don't
let the night shadows frighten you so."
She smiled back into my eyes brave
ly enough, although I realized the ef
fort of will that it cost; and so I left
her endeavoring to cheer the girl, who
was sobbing wildly, with her face
buried in her hands.
The men joined me as I stepped
without, crunching the light snow un
der their heavy boots, and staring un
easily about them as though the whole
adventure was a dream. Lord! and
no more could I shake off that same
impression as I surveyed the scene
aft. A boat, bottom up, the planks
smashed beyond repair, lay against
the starboard rail. The after-cabin.
Washington. Through the defeat
In the senate of a number of amend
ments offered by "insurgent" repub
licans and democrats, the way was
paved for an early vote on the ad
ministration railroad bill. It is ex
pected this will come at once.
The regular republicans maintained
a firm hold upon the situation during
several votes on important features,
notwithstanding the fact that the in
surgents and democrats united their
votes on several occasions. More
was accomplished during the closing
hours of the session than in any one
week during the three months the
bill has been the pending business.

closed, and the whole front appeared
a solid mass of glittering ice, so ob
scured by frozen particles of snow as
to render any disco ver of the door an
impossibility. We began hacking at
it with our knives, judging the opening
would naturally be at the center, but
the sheathing of ice proved so thick
