He then proceeds Us.n the hyitbesis that the world now contains, always has con tained, aud will always contain I'..', Uot.X' inhabitants, and that a gener etiun lasts for thirty-three and one tbird yestrs. which give a total num ber of inhabitants every century of Zf7&fX.y-f:'.

He then reaches the conclusion that if 1M. worlds of the came size and duration and containing the same numler of inhabitants, should redeem all the inhabitants there would le more than H.' rooms of the size Indicated for each person. The calculation is unneces sary.

Then he shoutel to the otiiers. and one by one pulled up five of the crew. Fortunately the squall was soou over, although tlie sea was high.

McField dived, passed under the gunwale and rose in the hatch. It was pitch dark, and the interior of the vessel was full of the lloating cargo, but he kept yu steadily.
