Htephens accepted the commission.
Stephens met a motley crew, to which he
wns assigned. He cw tliem tlnal in

successfully captureil tlio vessel supposed
to be t,e Ksmeralda. through strategy.
Capt. Stephens gave directions for the de-
fiarture ,.: the craft. He entered the c.-ib-n
and discovered the lCnslisli woman
hskI her snaid. Stepliens quickly learned
the wrong vessel had Jeen captured.
It was Lord Darlington's private yacht,
the lord's wife and snaid being aboard.
He explained the situation to her lady
ship. Then First Mate Tuttle laid liare
the plot, saying that the Sea Queen had
been taken in order to go to the Antarc
tic circle. Tuttle cvpl.-iincd that on a
former voyage he had learned that the
honna Isabel was lost in 17T.3. He hail
found it frozen in a huge case of ice
on an island and contained much gold.
Stephens t indented to be the captain
of the expedition. He told I-adV
Darlington. She was greatly alarmed,
but expressed confidence in him. The
Sea Queen encountered a vessel in the
fog. Stephens attempted to communicate.
This caused a tierce struggle and he was
overcome. Tuttle finally squaring the sit
uation. Then tin Sea Queen headed south
again. I'nder Tuttle's guidance the v-s-nel
made progress toward Its goal.
1 Nova, tlie mate, told Stephens that he
believed Tut lie. now acting as skipper.
Insane because of his ipieer actions.
Stepliens was avakened by crashing of
glass lie saw Tuttle in the grip of a
spasm of religious mania and overcame
him. Tlie sailor upon regaining his senses
was taken ill. Tuttle committed suicide
by shooting. Upon vote of the crew
Stephens assumed the leadership ami the
men decided to continue tlie treasure
hunt, the Islands being supposed to be
only VftQ miles distant. Tuttle was burled
In the sea. I-idy Darlington pronouncing

sleep saw the ghost, supposed to have
formed tfie basis for Tuttle's religious
snanta. 1'pon advice of luly Darlington.
Stephens started to probe the ghost.
He came upon Lieut. Sam hez. the drunk
en officer he had humbled in Chile, lie
found that at Sanchez inspiration. Kn

the men Inlo giving up the piest. Stepli

Darlington thanked him. Tlie Sea Queen
Marted northward. She was wrecked in a
fog. Stepliens. lie Nova. Lady Darlington
and her snaid being amosig those to set
out In a life boat. Ten were rescued.
Stephens saw only one chance in a thou
sand for life. Lady Darlington confessed
her love to Stephens and lie did likewise.
Lady Darlington told her life story: how
she had been bartered for a title, her
yearning for absent love. She revealed
herself as the school chusn of Stepliens"
sister. She expressed a wish to die in tlie
sea rather than face her former friends
nnd go back to the old life. A ship was
sighted. Tlie craft proved to be a derelict.
They hoarded her. She was frozen tight
with hundreds of years of ice. The ves
sel was the Donna" Isabel. lost in 17".:. l:K
years previous. The frozen bodies of the
former crew were removed. They read
the log of the Isabel, which told how
the Spasiiards had died from cold, one by
one. I-ady I Mrlingtntl sang to prevent
tho ssion from becoming snoody. The crew
comsnenced the hunt for treasure. They
found the Iron chest, said to contain a
part of 3.0'.0oi) pesos, firmly imbedded in
e. Lady Darlington expressed the Iielief
that it would never benefit tlie men. for
she said the Donna Isabel would never
reach port. Tlie snen got a lust for gold.
Stepliens quelled it by whipping one. Tlie
Donna Isabel showed indications of sink
ing. They prepared to depart with what
treasure bad been found. The pe.xt morn
ing they departed. Stephens went back
to try to rescue Cnle. a gold-crazed negro,
who was hunting treasure in the hold.
Stephens plunged into the icy sea a tno
nient before the Donna Isabel sank. His
snates rescued him. the negro being lost.
Kxposure made siearly everyone but Lady
Darlington and Stephens Insane. Ib-r love
for him kept him buoyed up through tlie
terrible days and slights at sea isi the
open boat. One sailor jumped overboard,
his pockets laden with ' gold. Sanchez
broke his leg. Stephens' mind became
blank. Two days later tiny were res
cued by a steamer. 1'or three days
Stepliens hovered between life and death.

While I was sitting up and partially
dressed that evening, Marsden, the
chief mate, came in and told me brief
ly the story of our rescue.
"Wo were considerably to the west
of our course." he said, gravely, "be
cause we had met headwinds and a
heavy sea all the way down the coast.
It was just at daybreak when we
sighted your boat in longitude 7S de
grees west and latitude 53 degrees,
17 minutes south. I've been knocking
about at sea for 20 years, Mr. Ste
phens, but I never saw a mere pitiful
sight than that longboat presented
when we got up alongside. The jib
held, but the mainsail was in tatters,
and for a minute or two I didn't think
there was a living soul aboard. There
was a man forward lashed down with
ropes, dead; a man and a woman were
wrapped up in blankets amidships,
leaning against each other, their eyes
closed. Close up to the stern another
woman was lying with her arms about
your neck and hiding your face."
"Doris, with her arms about me!"
I thought. How well I knew the desper
ation that could lead her to the em
brace she had ever refused me! .Mars
den went on:
"A big fellow held to the tiller as
if he was froze there, but he'd dropped
down until his head hung dangling as
tho boat rocked. There wasn't one of
them took any notice of us until we
were fairly alongside. Then this big
sailor lifted his head and stared dull
eyed like he thought he saw a vision,
and when I spoke to him the woman
that had her arms about you stag
gered to her knees and began to cry.
Good Lord, sir, but it made my heart
ache, and I never saw so much misery
in any human face before. Well, we
fell to. and got you all on the El Cid,
hoisted the whole outfit over the rail,
and. barring the- dead man, I reckon
you're all good for a spell of life yet."
"They told you our story?"
"Yes most of it, anyway; and I
understand all right what it was did
you up so. It wasn't hunger or cold,
but just the loneliness an' strain."
1 looked away from him, out
through the open port at the gray
vista of sea.
"That was it. Mr. Marsden." I said,
my voice shaking to the memory of it.
"It was the hell of the great ocean
! it broke our hearts."
As the El Cid sped on her way up
tho Patagonian coast my strength
came rapidly back, and I soon found
my way on deck, where, wrapped
ascainst the chill of the wind, I passed
much time talking with Doris, seeing

I glanced aft In the direction she
pointed. Within the companion stood
the debonair mate, his little black
mustaches curled jauntily upward, his
teeth merrily glistening, as he smiled
down upon a rosy-cheeked damsel,
whom I recognized as tlie stewardess.
My companion patted her little foot
on the deck.
"Pah did I not tell you, monsieur?
I know ze sailor."
She swept away with the swift
movement of a bird, and I turned my
face about to perceive Marsden stand
ing silently beside me. He drew up
a deck chair and sat down at my side.
His grave face and manner led me to
"I have been wondering," I said,
slowly, "whether you intend to report
us as soon as you make land. No
doubt you heard the story of the Sea
Queen at Valparaiso, and have already
guessed us to be the survivors of the
crew of that yacht."
"Why, yes." stroking his beard; "we
have no doubt as to that. We know
little of the affair of the Sea Queen

the hour glass with the right amount

You will tell her the story?"
"Yes," I said, not venturing to look
into his face, realizing that he under
stood. I sat there, it seemed for hours, en
deavoring to muster up courage for
my task as I watched, far in the dis
tance, the darkening outlines of Cape
Flores. At last I went slowly down
the companionway into the cabin.
Slowly and falteringly at first, but
gaining control of my voice as I pro
ceeded, I told her all, marking the
pallor of her cheek, the horror in her
eyes. For another age I sat silent,
gazing across the deserted cabin out
through an open port, afraid to dis
turb the motionless woman beside me.
Finally my fingers, almost uncon
sciously, crept across the rail of the
settee until they touched her own.

confused by her silence, "is it possible
that you already knew this?"
She did not raise her bowed head,

misty with tears, and I realized the

Most Men Have Weakness for Being
Photographed on Horseback, Says
A young man went out with a cam
era one morning not long ago and
took seven snap shots of early morn
ing horseback riders. He sent proofs
of the pictures that turned out well
to the men who were photographed
and every one of the men sent him an
order to finish up a few of the pic
tures. "Of course they did," said a more
experienced amateur photographer
when he heard about it. "A man will
j always buy a picture of himself on a
horse unless he's an unusually poor
rider and looks bad on a horse. No
matter how modest a man is. you
catch him at the one time when you
may appeal to his vanity, when he's
mounted on a good riding horse."

Men who succeed in commerce

Prohibitionists Put Up Ticket.
The prohibition party which it was
supposed would not put up a state
ticket this fall in consideration of the
scrap in tho two old parties over
county option, is now in the race with
nominees for governor, lieutenant
governor nnd state treasurer. George
I. Wright of Otoe county filed for gov
ernor and Samuel Lichty of Falls City
filed as a candidate for lieutenant gov
ernor and Albert Fitch of Central City
for state treasurer. Several days ago
T. M. Birmingham of Pender filed as
a prohibition candidate for United
State senator. Later he presented pe
titions from twenty-five republicans
and twenty-five populists so his name
will go on three tickets as a candidate
for the place that Hitchcock and Met
calfe are striving for. John D. Stod
dard of Republican City has filed as a
prohibition candidate in the Fifth dis
trict It has been customary for the pro
hibitionists to have a full state ticket
in the field, but this year it was gen
erally thought the party would stay
oat of the fight in order not to em
barrass candidates of either of the
old parties who may stand for county
option. The flliing of prohibition can
didates is considered proof that the
men who filed in the name of the par
ty do not propose to wait on any of
the old parties to take a stand on
Raising the Dues.
Raising the scale of dues paid by
members was the means adopted by
the Nebraska postmasters' association
at Lincoln last week to tike care of
& threatened 1200 deficit in its treas
ury. Officers of the association laid
before the convention at its final ses
sion the fact that expenses had been
bo heavy as to make necessary some
provision for increasing the income In
future. The method proposed for do
ing this was to abolish the old flat
rate of $1 annual dues for all postmas
ters of whatever grade, with 50 cents
added for initiation fee. and substi
tute a sliding scale. After a lengthy
discussion the dues were fixed as fol
lows: For postmasters of first class offices,
$10; second class. $5; third class, $2;
fourth class, 1.
Ogallala to Have Depot.
Edson Rich, attorney for the Union
Pacific Railroad company, met Mayor
Harris of Ogallala and Mr. Holloway
of that town, the compainant in a de
pot case, and together with the mem
bers of the railway commission a stip
ulation has been agreed upon. The
complaint asks that a new depot be
built at Ogallala. The railroad at
torney agreed to recommend an appro
priation for a new depot, the amount
to be incorporated in the company's
budget for 1911, and to file plans for
the proposed building with the com
mission by July 1. 1911. If the rail
road officials do not provide funds for
the building It is agreed that the rail
way commission shall order the com
pany to build.
