by their united efforts, succeeded In-

Thoroughly tired out, tha, two went

Tbese, they said, wet to be.utid for.

After, again thanking the king and
whispering good-bye to each other, In
case the plan should fall, they made tha

' Fortunately ths parachutes served
their purpose, and, instead of - being'

Then, under cover of the night," they :

Just daybreak when they pushed off
from shore. Before going they had rig

. Only a few rods from shore were they
when tba boat was discovered by tbe
savages, who. upon not finding them at
tbe base of the cliff, had been search
ing for them. Frantically they yelled
and waved their spears and then rushed "
for their canoea.
But the wind was filling the Impro
vised sails, and with swift strokes of
the paddles the lads were soon beyond
reach of tb savages. .
As good fortune would have It, they
were not far from Pindargogo. The
wind and weather were all that could
be desired, so tbey made the Island
without mishap. .

It was a beautiful parasol, so that It
was but natural that Judith should

Raising the pretty' parasol, JuUth
