On board the Keynard waa an old

of th South Beaa. Ami very aoon,
through hla p-lou tongue, he had

by th matea of the lUiiyard. whoae

came Infatuated with tho Idea of set
tling on an Inland, and old Ned, nothing
J-jth. undertook to take charge of the
party If thvy would make an atumpt
to clear from the ahlp. The old man
had taken a fancy to young Jtenton.
And the youngster, when tho Idea waa
Imparted to him, fell In with il enthua
lustltully, for he waa exaHTated with
the treatment he had recedved on
board the guano-man (tb afterguard
of an American guano ahlp are a
rough lot). Tho ahlp waa lying on and
off land, there being no anchorage, and
before the plan had been UIucuhI
more than a few hour the mm, Ave
peravna In all, determined to put It
A anmll whalo boat u towing
astern of the veaael, In case the wind
should full light and the ahlp drift In
too clone to the ahore. It waa a fine
night, with a light broexe, aiul there
waa, they thought, a gixl chance of
getting to the outhwird to one of the
Siimunn group, where they could t
tie; or, by chipping on board a trading
schooner there, might later on atilke
ajine other Inland to their fancy.
By atenlth they managed to atow In
the boat a couple of anmll breakers of
water, holding, together, sixteen gal
lon, and the force wile break barge,
with blHcult enough for three men la a
day per man for teo days. They man
aged also to Meal four hams, nnd each
man brought pfp?8 and tobacco and
matches. A harpoon with some line,
nn old galley frying-pan, moat, sail
and oar nnd some blankets covered
the equipment. For they took no com
pass, though thvy made several at
tempt at first to get at one slung In
the cabin und trl fd at first to take one
out of the poop binnacle, but the of
ficer of the deck was too wldo awake
for them to rink ithat, and the cabin
compass was screwed to the roof close
to the skipper's berth; and so the old
man who was their leader, old sailor
and whaler as he was, actually gave
up tho Idea of taking a eompnus, nnd
these people without more ado one night
slipped over the side Into the whale
boat, cut the painter, ad by daylight
the boat was out of sight of land and
of ship. They were sailing upon the
Taclflc, running six or seven miles be
fore a strong northeast breeze and ex
pecting to sight land In lea than a
week, and were already anticipating a
freedom and luxury of Island life In
store for them.
Three days later It fell calm, and
they had to take to the oars. The iun

on pulling, For lhr for four day

plntN, the fiirl to a few duy half ra

Unit they could .lot move from their
pliii'i-s In tho im.t, th"lr laxlli were
becoming covered with sores, and the
wild had now ll.il away entirely; tlie
sea wua without a ripple, and tr ever
shown iibuve llietii the fierce, hot sun.
llrnduall It had dawned tipn th'-in
llui' they were il ihia perhaps tht y

their adventure gave piaoe to despair,
und by degri" their dpalr grew to

forerunner of the flerco and sweeping
mld-eiiuatorlal gale which lay veU..-d
behlii'l. In leas than half an hour It
came upon and amote them with aavege
lury, and thj llUle boat waa running
brfurt how ling gale and a maddening.
And then k hat'ii'wm-d that, ill ami
aufferlng aa he waa from tile nsonlea
of hunger and thirst, the herolo nature
of old "Boston Ned,, came out, and his
bold aallor'a heart chevred and encour-
mpi his wretched, despairing compan
ion. All that night and for the
greater Jurt nf the next day he stood In
the stern F1, gTanplng the bund

aurgi-d along b.-fore the gale, constant
ly watching lest she should broach to
and smother In the roarhig was; the
u'hers lay In the bottom fwbly bulling
out the water, encouraged, urged, and
driven to that exertdm by the -gallant
old American seaman.
Toward noon the sea moderated; in
the afternoon It died away altogether.
and again the boat lay rising and fall
ing to the lung Pacific swell, and "Bos
ton Ned" Hung hla exhausted frame
down In the atern sheets and alept.
Twenty daya out the last particle of
food and watvr had be.-n consumed, and
though the boat waa now steering as
near wvstward aa oM Ned could Judge,
before a gentle, southeast trade, mad
ness and despair were coming quickly
upon them, and on the twenty-third
day two of th five miserable creatures
began to drink copiously of sea-water
the drink of death.
Kenton, though he had suffered to the
bitter full from th agonies of body
and mind endured by hla shipmates,
wa not one of the"?, and by a merci
ful providence remained Bane enough
to turn hi face away from the water.
But, as he lay cr.mched In a heap In
the bottom of he boat, with a silent
prayer In hi heart to the Creator
quickly to end hla sufferings, he heard
"Boston Ned" and the only remaining
aane man excepting hlmtwlf muttering
hinrely together, and looking some
times at him and sometimes at the two
almost dying mer who lay moaning
beside him. Presently the man who
waa talking to Ned pulled out of hla
blanket w hich lay In the stern sheeita

as quickly as possible mode his way

fixed upon the two mvn aft, waiting for
the struggle which he thought must
soon begin. All that day and night he
sat and watched, determined to make
a fight for the little life that romolmd
In him. and Ned and the other men

ton saw something astern moving slow
ly after the boat something that he
knew was waiting and following for
the awful deed to be done, so that, It,
too, might share In the dreadful feast.
Balstng his bony arm he pointed to
ward the moving fin. To him a shark
meant no added horror or danger to
their position, but possibly deliverance.
"Boston Ned" and the other man first
looked nt the coming shark and then
with sunken eyesf again turned to Ren
ton. Voices none of them had, and
Renton's parched tongue could not ar
ticulate, but with signs and Up move

had had one had they anything with

aft, picked up te harpoon, placed It In
"Boston Ned's"' hands and motioned to
him to stand by. Then, with eager,
trembling hands, he stripped from his
legs the shreds of trousers which re
mained on them, and, sitting upon the
gunwhale of the boat, hung one limb
over and let It trill In the water.
Three times the shark came up, and
thrice Ned Prepared to strike, but each
time the horrid ranger of the seas
turned aside and dived as It caught
sight of the waiting figure with weapon
poised above. But at last hunger pre
vailed, and swimming slowly up till

a eudden rush for the bait, missed It,

lMPBOVED TOURIST SLEEPERS.
Railroads Are Acceding to Demand of
Middle Classes Who Want Better
In response to the demands of th
lime the O. R. A N. and Its connec
tions are placing In operation a much
better grade of tourist sleepers for Pa-
cl13 coost service than at any previous
time. The largely Increased traffic to
this section of the country ha demand
ed all the Improvementa of latt'-r-day
transportation, and In consideration of
this the rallroada are establishing a
service which la excellent In every par
ticular. Not only are the wishes of
first-class passengers served, but those
who are traveling to and from the East
on second-clsss tickets are splendidly
careil for. There waa a time when a
t'-urlst sleeper appealed to a limited
number of people who were traveling
on the "cheap" order, in every meaning
of the term. Now, however, thera baa
been a radical chance. With the bet
ter tourist sleepers In operation th
clans of passenger has been Improved,
and one may now travel upon them
and enjoy all the privilege of a first
class sleeper at a greately reduced rate.
Pally, on the O. R. ft N. east-bound
fast mall, Is attached on of tbesia lat
est Improved tourist sleeper, a model
of beauty and handsome appointment.
The new car are almost an exact
counter! art of the flrst-clasi sleeper.
One noticeable featur of the new
tourist car li tb absence of a smoking
apartment. Th new cart being built
by th Pullman Company are not pro-

new departure has been taken because
of th fact that mist through trains
