could hardly believe bis ears. "D'ye
mean Henry Morgan?"
"The difference? Oh, but all the
difference in the world."
Captain Branseme came to the
rescue- with the explanation wh!h
Monsieur de Bernis seemed to dis
dain to offer. The buccaneers had
sort ef charter behind them. They
had been' encouraged by the Gov
ernments of both England and
France, because they had kept in
check the rapacity of Spain, con
fining their raids to Spanish ships
and Spanish settlements.
Monsieur de Bernis was moves
by this to take up the tale. "And
doing it as 111 swear none ethers
could have done it. Yea would not
sneer. Major Sands, had you cross
ed Darien with us."
He was launched upon remin
iscences. He began to tell them ol
that incredibly arduous journey
made -partly on foot and partiy by
water on the Chagres Rvrer. He
described the hardships they had
confronted and overcome: how foi .
eight days they had gone without
food, save an occasional evil-tast
ing musk-flavoured alligators egg;
how they had been constrained to
eat strips of hide, consuming even
their own belts to cheat their tarn
ished stomacjis; and how it was in
a spent condition that at last tney
had staggered into, sight of Pan
ama, which, forewarned, had mo
bilised to receive them, with guns
and horses, outnumbering them ia
men by three to one.
"If the Spaniards had only
driven in their cattle from the sa
vannah where we lay the night
before the battle, starvation must
have made us an easy prey to them.
I should not now be telling yen el
these things. But the cattle were
there, the steers and horses, anl
we took and killed what we re
quired, and ate the flesh almost
raw. And so, by the grace of God,
we found the strength to deliver
the attack, and carry the town ia
the teeth ef its defenders."
"By the grace of God!" said the
Major, scandalized. "It is'blae.
phemy, sir."
De Bernis was singularly pa
tient. "Tere intoterant, Major,"
was all he said.
"Of thieving rogues? To be sure,
I am, I call n thing by its proper
name. Ye can throw no glamour
ever the sack of Panama, sir. With
whatever arts yon tell the tale ef
it, it remains a thieving raid, and
the men who took part in it Mor
gan and his cut-throats were just
bloodthirsty, thieving scoundrels."

Fox Story Grows
But Animal Still
Laughing at Men
LIBERTY, Nor. 24 The black
fox which has molested farmers
south of here Is still at large ac
cording to the news item from
Falrvlew in Sunday's Statesman.
Charles- Krauger maintains that
the Falrrlew correspondent has
him an wrong, as it wasn't he but
"the two other fellows" who did
the fox hunting mentioned. This
may or may not be a reason for
the fox being still at large.
Anyway what' happened on the
hunt mentioned turned out not to
be a very foxy story after all. It
seems .that a couple of hunters
started out with hounds to try to
pick up the fox's trail. This after
covering a good deal of Falrrlew
territory they tailed to do: prob
ably because the fox covers new
One of the dogs, the youngest
one, cornered something in a
hollow stump and to make s
long story short, that eomethlni
was one of those kitties with i
white stripe down Its back.
