Cold as It was without there on the

make s recoil before it. our hands to

enough to hack away more of the ice

It was intensely dark within, every
window and porthole shrouded, only
the narrow door-openine; permitting
the slisht plimmer of the moon to
touch the edpe of the black interior.
I wrapped my mulller to the very eyes,
and stepped across the threshold, feel

chair having a carven top. and then
came into contact with a bare table,
heavily ridged along the edge. Seem

in; and I felt cautiously along it. a
deeper cowardice gripping me with
every hesitating step forward in the
dark. Suddenly I touched hair and

uncovered one. Hut we could get no
purchase upon it from the outside and
no one volunteered to venture within.
I kept them all busy, however, the
hard work and sense of command
combining to restore my own nerves
to a norm'al condition. The mate de
spairing of doing better, finally
brought back a table-leg of pitch pine
which we contrived to Ignite after
several unsuccessful experiments, the
yellowish-red flames circling the heavy
end like so many coiling serpents, and
sending forth a weird reflection
through spirals of black smoke. It
was a poor glim enough, yet It would
serve; and I bore it inside, holding the
torch well before me. the men clus
tering about the door.
The mottled flare cast mingled light
ami shadow over the horrors thus
dimly revealed, rendering the ghastly
sight one to chill the blood of any
man. The cabin was a long one, ex
tending aft clear to the stern, the
immense butt of the mizzen-mast al
most separating it into two apart
ments. About this was arranged a
great arm-rack completely filled with
a variety of weapons, many of them
flashing back the glittering rays of the
torch. At one time that had been
a rare sea parlor, but now it was a
wreck, the walls and ceiling dingy
with smoke, the gilt defaced and bat
tered. Overturned furniture was every
where; piles of clothing, and a perfect
riffraff of articles strewed the deck
floor; a violin lay almost at my feet,
all but one btring snap ed; and some
sort of an odd mui:Ic-box rested
against the bench over which I had
fallen. A great square box-stove
stood just before the mast-butt, a huge
pile of ashes all about. An immense
lantern, as .strange a looking contriv
ance as eer 1 saw, swung solemnly
from a deck-beam, and just beyond,
suspended by wires, was a gorgeously
colored picture of the "Madonna and
I beheld all these details a' a glance,
although at the time I scarcely realized
any of them, my entire horrified atten
tion being riveted upon the scene of
death revealed. The trble, which I
had previously touched, extending
crossways of the cabin, was uncovered
but containeJ plates, cups, a large
bottle half-tilled, and some scraps of
frozen food. The bodies of two men.
one with a cloak over his shoulders,
occupied the bench within three feet
of me. The one nearest had fallen
sideways, and hung there, his arm
hooked across the back of the bench,
his long, black hair dangling over his
face: the other sat with head bowed
on the table, his features hidden by
his arms, but the gold rings in his
ears plainly showing. Directly oppo
site these two. sitting belt upright in
a chair, eyes wide open, staring
straight at me. was a third. My God!
it was De Nova! The same eyes, the
same dark curly hair, the same little
black mustache, the sarao smile
curling the thin lips. I could have
sworn it was the mate, endeavoring to
frighten and mock me. I even
wheeled about angrily, flashing the
light of my torch over that cluster of
faces in the doorway. No! by heavens,
the creole stood behind, and this, this
counterpart, was a dead man dead
for a hundred years. No words can
ever retell the struggle I made to con
trol myself, the smoking torch sha
king in my hand and casting Its mis
erable flicker over that charnel house,
every limb trembling like aspens, my
eyes staring into the shadows. My
very violence of fear angered me;
what bad I to be afraid of? How

could these poor frozen bodies injure

fmward around the end of the table,
throwing the faint glare of the torch
into the after space concealed by the
huge nast-butt. A tall, thin man sat
on the deck, braced against the wall,
his long, gray beard almost concealing
his face: en a wide divan, nearly op
posite, lay a woman, her dark hair
loosem-d. a large diamond glittering
on the hand which hung rigid over the
edge f the couch. Just below her
finsers. as If dropped there in final

conquered the sickly horror that smote
ne as I gazed about upon this scene
of death, rendered even more terrible
by the silence and the flickering,
smoking torch that furnished the only
light. Nothing except the sense of
command, the remembrance of those
women waiting outside in the cook's
galley, ever afforded me strength and
courage to remain. The task roust
be done; by some one it must be ac
complished, and that some one. of ne
cessity, was myself. With clenched

icy air of tho main cabin ten times
colder, and causing me to breathe
with rirflicully as I peered hastily
within. These staterooms were all of

fitted, although in great disorder. In
one only did I discover a body, that
of a child of three or four years, flaxen-haired
and bonny even in death.
Upon the deck at the foot of the mast
I discovered the vessel's log-book ly
ing wide open, a quill pen beside it,
exactly as It had been dropped. I did
not take time to decipher the Spanish,
inscribed in a scrawling hand, but my
glance caught the date of that last
entry "September 11. 17o3."
The date rang In my head crazily. as
I stood there staring at them, totally
unable to grasp or apprehend the
truth. One hundred and twenty-six
j ears! Merciful God! And all that
time those men had been there at that
table: all through those days and
nightc, those months and years, that
frozen image of De Nova had been
smiling, his cold fingers clutching the
glass; all through those decades that

changes the world had witnessed
since these died! What wonders of
discovery; what growth In faith;
what widening of human knowledge:
what generations of men and women
had been born, lived, loved, and died
since the deadly Ice locked these Into
this floating tomb!
Not until after I had explored the
last empty room and returned to the
group at the door did I regain my
senses and feel myself again a living,
responsible being upon whoso strength
of will depended the future of all on
board. A glance Into those horrified
faces told me Instantly that they were
ready for a mad retreat to the boat;
that tho slightest exhibition of weak
ness on my part would set them into
a panic. I stiffened into resistance, all
memory of the past blotted out utter

"Men, we've come Into a hard job

The two started forward willingly
enough, and I Immediately turned to
the others, marking their uneasy
glances, and fully assured that I must
keep them also busily employed, or
else lose control altogether.

continued, quickly. "McKnight, you

When Making A Valance
t One Woman's Idea That May Be
Copied and Afford Satisfaction
The chief difficulty In making a

without putting tacks into the furni
ture, or having it on narrow strips,
that pull out from under the mattress.
One woman has bit upon the plan
of having heavy, unbleached sheeting
cut just the size of the bed, or a lit

sheeting is shrunk before being used.

side, and across the end if the bed i3

AVOID HASIT OF SLOUCHING
Really Is a Fault That May Easily Be
Overcome by the Exercise of
Slouching is nothing mtt negligence,
and displays a lack of self-control.
Don't give way to it. but see if a
little energy won't overcome It. It
may seem but a trifle to you, but not
to others. These will not be as le
nient in judging your slouching habit,
and not only will criticize it severely
but may eventually form an entirely
wrong opinion of you.
The stooping position of the back
and shoulders is not only far from
beautiful, but highly insanitary, se
verely handicapping the respiration
and preventing all the internal organs
from performing their duties properly.
The habit of letting the shoulders
droop and the back stoop may have
been acquired by rapid growth, or by
overzealous study, but whatever the
cause it should be mended as speed
ily as possible.
Let the arms hang freely at the
sides. Don't fold your hands in front
of you, and train yourself to walk
with free, long strides, instead of hop
ping or waddling, as so many women
j do. and, above all. sec to it that the
poise of your head Is correct, well
thrown back. Instead of being a half a
mile In advance of your body. Then
it is easy to adjust the bat firmly and
keep It so, and It will not be awry.
As In everything else, the secret ol
success lies chiefly in a firm, deter
mined will to overcome the difficulty,
paying no heed to discouraging fail
ures In one's efforts, which are bound
to occur when one first commences to
break with the slouching habit.
Complete White Costume.
As a complete white outfit for a girl
make the dress of soft white em
broidery and the girdle of soft white
taffeta and small bows at the left
iront side. Provide a large sailor hat
or white chip, trimmed with large
bows of white taffeta ribbon. If the
hat is turned up at one side or the
back, use a single bow. sufficiently
large to cover the brim at that point
and drape the crown with ribbon
folds. White silk gloves, white lisle

should be added. Hut the parasol
