At first tliey "distinguisiieu liotnin?:
enve a chaotic blend of white and yel
low foam, driving over the reef at an
apparently incredible speed. Over
head the black pall of the sky seemed
to touch the top of the lantern. Around,
in a vast circle carved out of the mur
ky wilderness, the wondrous beam of
the light fought and conquered its un
wearied foes. Constance caught ..the
three quick flashes of the Seven Stones
lightship, away to the right. She fan
cied she saw a twinkling ahead, but
this was the St. Agnes light, and nei
ther girl could make out other sight
nor sound until Brand pointed stead
ily toward one spot in the darkness.
Before they could follow his Indica
tion they were compelled to duck to
avoid another wave. Then, as if it had
just popped up out of the sea, they di
vined a tiny white spark swinging
6lowly across a considerable area. It
was by that means that Brand had es
timated the size and nearness of the
steamer, and soon they glimpsed the
red and green side lights, though ever
and anon these were hidden by the tor
rents of water sweeping over her
decks. Of the vessel they could see
Steadily she rolled along her fearful
path. Having once found her, there
was no difficulty in estimating the ra
pidity of her approach. Enid, whose
eyes were strong and farsighted, fan
cied she caught a fitful vision of a big
black hull laboring In the yellow waves.
Though it was difficult to speak, she
crept close to Brand and screamed:
"Is she drifting on to the reef?"
"I fear so," he answered.
"Then she will be lost!"
"Yes, unless they manage to pass to

tal stress and physical effort rarely
unite forces. The mere attempt to re
sist the wind, the constant watchful
ness needed to avoid the ambitious
seas, though these, strange to say, ap
peared to be diminishing in size and
volume as the tide rose, served to dull
the horror of the threatened tragedy.
- Brand quitted them for an Instant to
glue his eyes to the lantern after wip
ing a space on the glass. He must see
if the lamp needed tending. Satisfied
by the scrutiny, he stood behind the
girls, who had shrunk closely together
the moment he retired.
"They are trying to steer clear of
the reef," he shouted. "Twice they
have got her head around, but the sea
Is too strong for them. I am afraid she
is doomed." ' ;
Now they unquestionably saw the
great body of the ship. Her funnels
showed most clearly, making sharply
denned black daubs on the heaving
desert of froth. The plunging whirls
of the masthead light were enough to
prove how the unfortunate vessel was
laboring In what might prove to be her
And the pity of it! The wind was
dropping. In another hour the weather
might moderate appreciably, the tide
would sweep her away from the horri
ble reef and help would be forthcom
ing. Indeed, even then a powerful
steam trawler was preparing to fight
her way out of Penzance harbor, with
brave men on board ready to take any
risk to save a ship In distress.
But the hour was grudged by fate.
They could plainly hear the hoarse
blasts of the steamer's fog horn, and
again a rocket spurted its path to the

anything, in a worse position than be

"Can nothing be done?" screamed
Constance, rendered half frantic by the
thought that the steamer would go to
pieces before their eyes.
"Nothing," was the answer. "Pray
for them. They are in the hands of
In grewsome distinctness they watch
ed the vessel's approach. The siren
ceased. Had those on board abandon
ed hope? Pitching and rolling in a
manner that suggested the possibility
of foundering in deep water, she came
on with fatal directness. Suddenly a
dreadful thought came to Brand's
mind. The lighthouse stood on the
easterly and most elevated portion of
the reef, whose bearings ran southwest
by west and north-northwest At low
water some two acres of Jagged rocks
are exposed. On all sides the sound
ings fell to sixteen and eighteen fath
oms. What if this helpless leviathan
jf 10,000 tons or more dead weight
were to strike the pillar? This was
quite possible with the tide at its pres
ent level. It all depended whether her
bows were raised or lowered at the mo
ment of impact. In the one case she
would smash away many feet of rock
and perhaps damage the foundations
of the lighthouse; In the other, her
sharp prow would stab into the vitals
of the granite and the huge column
might collapse in common ruin with its

i malignity or fate, though they might
have swung her to port, she would not
budge a yard to starboard, . for now
both wind and waves assailed her most
vehemently on the starboard quarter.
Then when she was little, more than
twice her own length distant he was
certain that a dim form on the bridge
signaled to the chart house. With a
miraculous deftness, on the assumption
that her wheel was put hard over, she
fell away from tle racing seas. Her
red light disappeared, her green light
curved into full view. The next wave
lifted her bodily, with a mad joy that
it should be able to use her to batter
its enemy, the rock.
Then she struck, with a sickening
crash that was plainly audible above
the roar of the reef. This was not
enough. Another rush of foaming wa
ter enveloped her and smashed her
again on an inner ledge. There she
lodged, falling inertly over to star
board. And Brand found his voice once
more, for, as sure as this terrible night
would have its end so surely had the
gallant captain of the steamer refused
to imperil the lighthouse when all hope
of saying his ship had vanished.
The tears were in Brand's eyes. His
arms encircled the two girls.
"There goes a fine ship commanded
by a brave man!" he cried.
. And that was the beginning of the
BUST as the spin of a coin may
mean ' loss or gain in some
, trumpery , dispute or game of
the hour, in like manner ap
parently are the graver issues of life
or death determined at times. It is not
so, we know. Behind the triviality on
which men fasten with amazement as
the governing factor in events there
lies an inscrutable 'purpose. Yet, to
those" watcning the destruction of the
splendid vessel, there was little evi
dence of other than a blind fury in the
fashion of her undoing. . .
The hoarse words , had ' sparce: left.
Brand's lips before a third wave, high
er and more truculent than its .prede
cessors, sprang right over the lost ship
and smothered her in an avalanche of.
water. No doubt this monster swept
away some of the officers and crew. It
was impossible to be certain of aught
save the one thing tfiat the steamer
would surely break up before their
eyes. The wind, now, blowing in fierce
gusts; the sea, rising each minute; the
clouds of spray chasing each other hi
eerie flights through space; the grind
ing, . incessant, utterly overwhelming
noise of the reef, made all sights and
sounds indefinite, nebulous, almost fan
tastic. But when the giant billow receded,
leaving the ship like a dark rock in the
midst of innumerable cascades, the ca
tastrophe took place which Brand
would have foreseen were his thoughts
less tumultuous. With the support of
the sea withdrawn from half its length
the huge hull must either slip back
into deep water or break In two. The
slender steel shell of an ocean liner is
not constructed to resist the law of
gravity acting on full 5,000 tons.
the solid looking colossus cracked like
a carrot, and the after part fell back
into the watery chasm, ttere to be
swallowed instantly amid a turmoil
which happily drowned the despairing
shrieks of far more than half of those
Constance and Enid screamed bitter
ly in their woe, but again they were
saved from utter collapse by the ex
igencies of the moment. Brand, who
expected to see the remainder of the
ship blown up by the inrushing of the
sea to the furnaces, dragged them forc
ibly below the level of the protecting
Yet nothing of the sort took place.
A vast cloud of steam rushed upward,
but it was dissipated by the next
breath of the gale. This incident told
the lighthouse keeper much. The ves
sel had been disabled so long that her
skillful commander, finding the motive
power of no further avail and certain
that his ship must be driven ashore,
had ordered the fires to be drawn and
the steam to be exhausted from all
boilers except one. Therefore her shaft
was broken, reasoned Brand. Proba
bly the accident had occurred during
the height of the hurricane, and her
steering gear, of little use without the
driving force of the engines to help,
might have been disabled at the same
When the horror stricken watchers
looked again at the wreck the forward
part had shifted its position. It was
now lying broadside on to the seas,
and the lofty foremast thrust Its truck
to within a few feet of them.
They were spared one ghastly scene
which must surely have bereft the
girls of their senses. The majority, of
the first class passengers had gathered
in the saloon. Some clung like limpets
to the main gangway; a number, most
ly men, crowded together in the draw
ing room on the promenade deck. Far
ther than this they could not go, as the
companion hatchways had been locked
by the officer of the watch, the decks
being quite impassable.

frenzied occupants of the library and

door of the main companion.
If they had to die, they might as well
die in the open and not boxed up in
Impenetrable darkness. As a matter
of fact, the bolts were forced by a man
who fired his revolver at them. The
sea quickly discovered this new outlet.
The next wave, passing through the
saloon, sent tons of water pouring
through thepen hatch. One good re
sult accrued. The strong canvas awn
ing which prolonged the spar deck was
carried away, and te group of surviv
ors, benumbed with cold and wholly
overcome by their desperate position,
could see the entire height of the gran
ite column in front crowned with its
diadem of brilliancei The liberated
passengers saw it for the first time.
The sight brought no hope. Between
ship and lighthouse was a true mael
strom of more than sixty feet of water
created by the backwash, from the
stonework and the shattered hull.
Even if the passage could be made, of
what avail was it? The iron entrance
door was full .fifty feet above the pres;
ent level of the sea. It could only be
approached by way of the rungs of
iron imbedded In the granite, and ev
ery wave, even in the comparative
moderation caused by the obstructing
wreck, swept at least twenty feet of the
smooth stone tiers. It is this very fact
that prevents rock lighthouses from sel
dom if ever serving as refuges, for ship-'
wrecked sailors. The ascending ladder

The venturesome individual who thus,
suddenly made himself the.- center of
observation carried a line with him.
Not until he essayed the second portion
of his perilous ascent did Brand realize
what the other Intended to do, which
was nothing less than to reach the
truck, the very top of the mast, and en
deavor to throw a rope to the gallery.
And he might succeed, too that was
the marvel of it. The tapering spar
came very near to them, . perhaps
twelve feet distant, and the .wind
would certainly carry the rope across
the chasm if carefully thrown. A few
strong and active men might use this
aerial ferry. Well, better they than
none. Brave fellow! Would that the
Lord might help him!
Higher and nearer swung the stal
wart youngster, for none but a lithe
and active boy could climb a pole with
such easy vigor. At last he reached
the track, and a faintly heard cheer
from beneath mingled with the hyster
ical delight of Enid and Constance,
when, with legs twined round the mast,
he rested his arms for an Instant on
the flat knob of the truck.

he cleared the spar deck.
"Look out for the line," they heard
him shout. The wind brought his voice
plainly, but evidently he could distin
guish no syllable of Brand's answering
"Shall I make fast?" N
"Can't hear a word," he cried. "If
you can hear me hold a hand up."
"Catch the line," he went on. "It is
attached to a block with a running
tackle. Haul in and make fast."
"The megaphone!" shouted Brand to
Constance. She darted away to bring
it, and when the adventurer clinging
to the foremast had thrown a coil suc
cessfully. Brand took the Instrument.
"Why don't you come this way? The
others will follow," he bellowed.
"There are women, and children
down below. They must be saved first,
and they cannot climb the mast." was
"AH right, but send up a couple of
sailors. We are short handed here."
"Right-o," sang out the other cheer
ily, though he wondered why three men
should anticipate difficulty.
Down he went. Without waiting,
Brand and the girls hauled lustily at
the rope. It was no child's play to
hoist a hearvy pulley and several hun
dred feet of stout cordage. More than
once they feared the first thin rope
would break, but it was good hemp,
and soon the block was hooked to the
strong Iron stanchions of the railing.

If you ha.ve'125 loads of manure to spread and yon are going to plant 25 acres'of corn or wheat,
or have a 25 acre meadow we will tell you how you can increase the value of your crop this year
from 14.00 to $3.00 per acre or more than enough to pay for a spreader. We issuej a 48-page book
entitled "Practical Experience With Barnyard Manures," which explains the whole situation.
. Our Plan is not a theory. It is an actual fact, backed up by actual experiments extending over
a period of IS years. To give you an idea of what this book contains, we show results of experi
ments made with various crops where 5 loads of manure were spread per acre by the old method,
and 5 loads by the new method, on corn ground. The latter shows a gain of 84.80 per acre. On
another field and in another state, it shows a gain of $5.60 per -zre. and on a clover and timothy
meadow, a gain of $8.00 per acre.
This Book will be sent free to anyone writing us. It is worth $100.00 to yon, bnt it won't cost
yon a cent. If it doesn't do you any good, it won't do yon any harm. Write us now and let us mail
it to you. It is brimming full of valuable information.
