They rested for a whlla,: and then. ' by their united efforts, succeeded In- righting . the boat, and climbed into It "I wonder how the other boat got " throughf : W mnst have fortunately struck an opening In the coral reefs' that surround all these Islands, and eo -got into water, .protected from ; the winds." - ' . . , Joe, who ' was balling energetically, paused a moment to reply t "They , had tha earn ehanca as w did. Rn . If they were thrown upon tbe reefs nothing could savs them." Thoroughly tired out, tha, two went to sleep, nor did they awake until dawn. Ned was first to awake. He rubbed bis eyes for a moment Then he sud dently pounced upon Joe and shook him roughly. - , "Look what's coming!" Ned exclaim ed excitedly. Joe looked, and was Instantly wide awake, for paddling toward them waa a large canoe filled with savages! ' -; "Aren't they beauties, and don't they look peaceable?" be murmured when the hideous faces and the murderous looking spears ' could bs seen dls- tlnotly. "Don't they, thoughr agreed Ned. "But, say," he continued, "we've got to make a bluff. Fold your arms and' aoeept his kind - toklnv .ha arraaaful 'creatures.' it On swss.

To. this, the king assented. , At the time appointed, the whole tribe was at the cliff. Soon .the boys appear ed, carrying- queer-shapfed skins. . fasU ened to what looked like umbrellas. Tbese, they said, wet to be.utid for. carrying the precious stones. After, again thanking the king and whispering good-bye to each other, In case the plan should fall, they made tha 'perilous lean. .,. ; , , . .. ' Fortunately ths parachutes served their purpose, and, instead of - being' dashed . to : pieces tbey reached tha ground In safety. . Then, under cover of the night," they : f made for the beach. But It took a long time to find their boat and to get soma - of ths savages' paddles, so that it was Just daybreak when they pushed off from shore. Before going they had rig ged up their skins as satis. . 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 waa who always saw Judith first and swam to feed upon the Crumbs ths lit tle miss always, brought .k ' Oh. It. was so .funny to see all ,tha swans face to -the bank to be fedt Judith woula clap her bands In gtm. And then Whltsy was so tame he would' even eat 'from her hands. He liked to have his bead scratched, -oo, and he -would look at her so contentedly that Judith was surs that be was saying, "Thank you," aa plain aa plain could be, even though be couldn't speak ,i way people do. 1 - Judith laughed and laughed When aha told me bow aha had shown her' new parasol to the oans. It was a beautiful parasol, so that It was but natural that Judith should wish to snow It to ber favorite pets, , especially Whltey. Raising the pretty' parasol, JuUth proudly strolled down to tbe pond. She thought It funny, a. she neared -the water, that Whltey or the other sv.ans did not swim toward her, as usual But she wet more surprised MART scanned too letter exclted lr. X)f all that's wonderfull Jessie's coming to visit us for ,,", sevaral weeks.' I suppose she'll hTs s whole wardrobe of old-fashioned country cloths too." - . . " "For shams!" crtsd Harry.

But It Mary ware at all ashamsd of ber sousln, sbs oertalnly didn't show U when she mat ber at the railroad sta. . tlon. . Jessie really looked so nice and fresh and chssrlul that no one but would bars been glad to own ber for a eo jain. And In the matter of clothes, there waa also a surprise In store for Mary; as Jessie was quit stylishly dressed.. Jessie 'spoiled It all, how avar, by aaying, in return to Marys compliment, tbst mother had "followed a city pattern pretty closely?' . A week later Mr. Graham was talk ing .to Mrs. Graham. "Have you no-. tlosd." said be. "bow much brighter ' the household baa grown sines Jessie eamer "Indeed. I have," quickly replied1 Mrs. ' Graham, who was an invalid; "there is no one like her to relieve my "pain and glvs ms nice little attentions." Truly, everything was much mora pleasant since Jessie bad come. Her uncle's slippers wers always ready for him, and ah aided 'hla comfort In a great many little ways. Bobby and j an vi, toe iwina, woo . were always - fighting one another, grew almost peaceable. Bobby, In particular, had been left quite to himself ever since Mrs. Graham had become an Invalid, , and It was very nice to have some on , take an interest in him and comfort , ' blm when be fell downstairs which happened three or four times a dsy and -to-sympathise - with blm at all times, t was something ba wasn't used to. Heretofore, when Harry lost a but. ton from bis clothes or had a tear to be mended, he waited his a la tar's conve nience. He was decidedly grateful now that Jessie undertook to do such mend ing even without his requesting It Even grandma could not say enough - In praise of the little girl. Jessie listen ed with eagerness to tlie stories of . long ago, which Mary pronounced so "tlresoms," and when dear, old grapd ma felt a little out of sorts, aa some times happened, no one could cheer ber like Jessie. Mary, too, grew Into tb bablt of run ning to ber cousin for advice upon als occasions, even In matters regarding dress, for shs soon found that Jessio had good tssts in such things In spit of ths fact that shs earn from wow country village. - It lacked but a few days of ths time Jessie wss to return boms. "By ' th . way, Jessie," said Mary, "I'vs arranged with some of the girls to make up a party to go to tb theater this after poon." . "I'm sorry." replied Jjessls, ' "but I've ' Bramlw4 ta taka tha twin, ta tha Zoo." "Nonsense! the little beggars can go any time. You'd bo bothered half to death with them." But Jessie still Insisted that shs would bold to bar promise, and Mary left u a huff. . . , - - ; That afternoon, ss Jessis wss leaving ths house with the twins. sh waa met by Harry, just returned from soma ad venturous trip. xicuui Truer an fvu . in HSU. , - , .

As for Mary, sbs could bardly believe Harry, who bad always scoffed, .at such excurslonsl She had not at all en. joyed herself at the theater; eh had a bad headache, and she said a few bitter words tbat wounded J etuis deeply and angered Harry to such an extent that he wouldn't speak to bis sister for a. week. But when Mary thought It all over, she told Jessie she Was sorry for what sbe had said, and the two "mad . up." so there was really no barm done. At last Jessie bad gone.
