"Mr. OKU fate' Isn't rightly known,

After as Invigorating cup of coffee
Lester wade a thorough examination
ot the Islam! and found many traces
of t;iMsrt occupation There was hia

"There was a good slaed lent pitched

there must bnve been a dusen men in
sides Cllbert Olds, for tbe latter a foot
prlnta were easily distinguished from
the ot hers, for be had worn shoes.
There waa no doubt that Ollbert Olds
bad been attacked by natives from, the
neighboring htlauda and carried away
to death or captivity.
A careful search of the most pro nil
nent palms along tbe shore did not re
veal one that bad a hollow trunk or
that In any way aeemed to offer a
hiding place for some of tbe most
niandld nearls of the east. Early in
i iha rtn,tn tha wind anrans Ult
again from tbe south, and almost Im
mediately Lester heard tbe sighing
mualc of the' night before.
He abook off ibe feeling of uncannl
ness at tbe strange sound and tried
to place Its source. Of one thing be
waa certain-tbat It hovered over the
tell oalm beneath which be had aat
tbe Dlcbt before. He stood beneath
Its aleoder. tapering trunk and looked
wistfully upward at tbe thick tuft of
branches above bla bead. If be ouly
had tbe ateel spurs of a telephone
wire man the mounting of that tree
would be a email matter.
AJI at once there stood plainly be
fore him aa if written on tbe sand a
picture In a long forgotten geography
of hia youth. It waa a drawing of a
south sea Islander cjlmblng the bare
trunk of a palm tree. Tbe man had
tied a long scarf about tbe tree and
hia own waist, and then, bending back
ward, hia bare feet pressed agalost tbe
tree, be braced himself against tbe
scarf and slowly ascended.
It waa a difficult feat to perform, but
Lester waa no mean athlete, and there
was a thin rash mere blanket that
would form an excellent brace for tbe
ascent. Be kicked off bis shoes, twist
ed the blanket Into a rope, tied himself
to tbe tree with plenty of alack and
tried. Be failed utterly. While be
rested, bruised and scratched, soother
idea came to him. and be Immediately
pnt It into practice. Hia bag also pro
duced a long roll of flexible rope
which hsd seemed to him a useful ad
junct to hia traveling kit in the trop
ica. A half boar's play with thla re
sulted in bis lassoing a thick bunch of
tbe top bra bee and pulling it taut.
Now, with tbe rope in his bands and
tbe brace once mora in place. Lester
gradually drew himself np to tbe tuft
ed top of tbe palm, where be rested
panting among the branches, while tbe
weird music played almost in his ears.
How that be waa np here It was
easy to Ond tbe source of tbe bidden
melody. An aeollan harp faablooed
from a cigar box and some atrings
from Gllbert'a mandolin waa cunning
ly concealed In the branches where ev
ery puff of tbe south wind resulted In
a strain of music. Why bad Ollbert
placed tbe harp there? Waa It a pre
caution against his possible capture by
the natives, and did It Indicate tbe
palm tree which contained tbe pear la?
Lester believed It did.
He found tbe pearla easily. Just be
neath tbe tufted top a square outline
waa cut In tbe trunk. Lester thrust
tbe blade of bis knife In one wedge
and pried It open like a little door. Tbe
pltby trunk bad been hollowed out. and
there, wrapped In an oilskin bag. were
tbe pearls which had cost a score of
Uvea since the fame of their presence
on the island bad gone abroad.
With tbe pearla In nl bosom Lester
slipped down from tbe tree Just as tbe
son ssnk below tbe horizon. Later
wben tbe mooo waa rising be sat

Lester stood at tbe water's edge to

"Ton got here Just In time. Gilbert,"
be said coolly. "My trading schooner

Than It heaven r panted Gilbert Olds
as be fell exhausted on tbe sand. "Ton

"Inside my belt." returned Lester, his

"Yes: there are flfteen canoes and
about a thousand sharks in my wake.
I hope your schooner Is not far off."
Lester answered tbe ball of tbe trad

Ollbert stood at tbe water's edge.

Recent Detroit-Chicago Battle
Will Never Be Forgotton.
TIGERS' WONDERFUL FIGHT,
With Seer 13 te 1 Against Thorn Jen
nlngs Warriors Made Most Phsnem
enal Finish In History ef the Nation
al Game and Won Out.
If there be any animal that ,
Besses greater gametic and greater
skill In fighting against overwhelming
odds than tbe tiger, then tbe popular
name for tbe Detroit baseball cluh
ought to be changed For the pat
four sea sous the club has dlspluyed
wonderful fighting spirit against Mg
odds, but In a game with tbe Chicago
White 8ox at Bennett park. Detroit,
on June IS last the Tigers played and
won the greatest battle In the history
of baseball. There never was a strug
gle like It before, and there pmouuly
never will be another.
The score stood Itl for Detroit and
15 for the White Sox wbea tbe great
came ended. These figures, though
large, are not particularly Impressive,
for there have been a lot of major
league battles in wblch the ruus have
been about as numerous on both
aides. Tbe point Is. however, that
wben the Tigers went to bat for tbelr
fifth time the count waa 13 to I lu
favor of the enemy. If a ball club
Isn't licked when ita opponents are a
doxen runs in front, with only Ave
more periods of batting remaining, at
least ita prospects of escaping said
licking aren't sufficiently brilliant to
encourage extensive betting.
In this exciting game the Sox piled
np seven runs in the first Inning, three
In tbe fourth and three in tbe fifth, the
Tigers the. while landing one lone tal
lythen began tbe fun. In tbe flfth
started a series of batting rallies by
Jennings' terrors tbat gave them four
runs in that Inning, three In the sixth
and Are In tbe eighth. In the mean
time the Sox In desperation bad added
two more to their count In tbe sev
enth, leaving the score at the begin
ning of tbe ninth at 13 to 13 In favor
of the Sox. ' ,
Jennings nsed eighteen men to turn
an Impending rout into a btilllnnt vic
tory, and the climax came in tbe ninth
in such thrilling fashion as to rouse
the fana to a high pitch of enthuslssm.
Hugbey had nearly exhausted bis re
serve forces in three previous rallies,
but hia resources seemed unending.
He sent Lathers to bat for Mitchell,
who bad atopped tbe visitors' hltfest
In the eighth inning. Lathers fanned,
but Jones,-another pinch man, wslt-
ed and then drove a single to center.
Bush followed with a single to left-
Then came the king of bitters. Ty
Cobb, and tbe fate of the game for tbe
Sox bung In tbe balance. Tbe crowd
went frantic with entbusiaam to think
two men were on the bases, one out
and the old reliable one at bat
In this emergency Cobb had two
strikes called on blm and waa angling
after a hit wben Walsh threw a splt
ball on tbe outside and low. Cobb bit
the ball sharply to Lord and raced for
first Lord knew tbe runner and
scarcely took time to steady himself.
His throw waa low. and Collins never
helped him out of the bole. Tbe ball
rolled to the bleachers, and Jones and
Bush romped home with tbe tying
runs. Crawford laced a ball to tbe
center field fence, scoring Cobb with
the winning tally and ending the most
remarkable game ever played on the
It waa surely a phenomenal game.
To overcome so great a lead speaks
well Indeed for tbe Tigers. It shows
Jennings" team to be one which does
not give np a light under any rircunv
stances. For this state of affairs Jen
nings alone la responsible. Be never
quits. Regardless of what the score
may be Jennings is on tbe lines work
ing his hardest He inspires bis play
ers with the never say die spirit and
many la the game which tbe Tigers
have won when but for Jennings de
feat would have been accepted as soon
as the opposing team gained a formi
Jennings has proved he is In a class
by himself In the American league as
a strategist and manipulator of men on
the diamond when the occasion de
mands something out of the ordinary.
He manipulates his men In an impor
tant battle aa a chesa master would
move his pawns, with a view of a final
climax In a checkmate.
Tbe recent game also Illustrates wby
Detroit is leading the American league
race. It ia not the great pitching or
the defensive atrength of the Tigers
that allows them to win. but their real
ly wonderful run getting proclivities.
It is. of course, a great hitting team,
but as a rule the Tigers get more runs
for their hits thnn does the average
ball team. On tbe bases It is undoubt
edly; the strongest team In the circuit.
Jones. 'Itanh. Cobb. Crawford and M
riarty can all run the bases, and. what
la more, they are constantly at It
And also the team la made np of hus
tlers. Tinder all circumstances every
man is on his toes and doing the best
he can to help his team. With blgh

baa no duplicate ln baseball history.
Callahan waa hardly a youngster wben

does Callahan appear to be a flash ln
