said the Cnptnin, hs he picked up tho
miniature nnd the other things; "you can
come aboard xvhen you like here, boy,
lock these in the chest.
The Imy put out his hand to tnke the
things, but in his fear or his clumsiness,
he dropped the miniature, nnd it cracked
iis)ti the floor. As the lad stood quiver
ing and terror-struck, Hlnck turned uion
him, almost foaming nt the lips.
"You clumsy young cub, whnt d'ye
menu by that?" lie asked; nnd then, ns
ihe boy fell on his knees to beg for mercy,
casting one pitiful look towards ine he
kicked him with his foot, crying:
"Here, give him a dozen with your

He had but to say the words, when n
colossal brute seized the boy in his grip,
and held his head downward to tho table

and struck him blow after blow xvith the
rent buckle, so thnt the flesh wns torn,
xvhile the blood trickled upon the floor.
When the hid fainted they gave him a
few kicks with their heavy boots, nnd ho
lay like n log on the floor, until the ruf
fian named "nonring John" picked him
up nnd threw him into the next room. Tho
incident was forgotten nt once, nnd Cap
tain Hlnck became quite merry.
Food wns put upon the tnble. It xvns
rich food, stews, with n profuse display
of oysters, chickens, boiled, roust, fine
French trifles pasties lees. I wished to
be nwny from a place whose atmosphere
poisoned nie. I whispered this thought to
Hall nnd he said, "Yes," nnd rose to go.
but the Cnptnin pulled him Imek. crying:
"Whnt, little Jew, you wouldn't eat

The men xvere becoming furiously of

Ihe mnn "Itonrlng John" attempted to
pay me n similar compliment, but I struck
Ids linml, and ho drew a knife, turning on
me. The action was foolish, for in a mo

cries, the smash of overturned boards
nnd lights, and remembered no more than
some terrific blows delivered xvith my left,
a sharp pain In my right shoulder ns a
knife wont homo, the voice of Hall cry
ing, "Make for the door the door," and
the great yell of Cnptnin ltlack nbox-e tho
others. His word, no doubt, saved us
from grenter harm ; for xvhen I had
thougth thnt my foolhnrdlness had un

Pht of n late Bummer's daw n 11 we reach
ed the hot"!. Paris slept. I wa hungry
for sh"p. and too fired to think more of
the HtT.'inge dream like seetie I had wit
nessed;; but Hall followed me to my bed
room and had yet a word to say.
"lieforc We part I want to nsk you
to do me yet one more service. Your yacht
is at Calais. Will "you go aboard thi
morning and take her round to Plymouth?
There ask for news of the American'
yacht he ha only hired her, and she is
called Im France. New of the yacht
will be news of me, nnd I shall tie glad
to think that aomeone is at my back in
this big risk. If you should not hear of
me, wait a month; but if you get definite
proof of my death, break the seal of the
paper you hold and rend."
So saying, he left me with a hearty
handshake. Poor fellow, I did not know
then tbyit I should break the seal of his
papers within three days.
The next morning while I was at brenk
fait a servant of the hotel entered to
tell me that a man who wished to sjienk
with me wns waiting outside. I said,
"Send the man here," nnd presently he
entered, when to my intense surprise I
found him to be no other than one of the
ruflinns the one cnlb-il "Four-Eyes," I
had met on the previous evening. He
walked into the room with a seaman's
lurch. His first words were somewhat
"Oi xvns pri'-st's boy in Tippemry,"
said he. and then he looked round as if
thnt information should put him on good
terms with us.
"Will you sit down, please?" was my
request n lie stood fingering his hat.

He gave me a letter, well written on
good paper. I xvrite it here:
"Cnptain P.lack presents his compli
ments to Mr. Mark Strong, and hopes
thnt it will be his privilege to receive
him on his yneht La France, now lying
ove rngainst the American vessel Port
land, in Hieppe harbor, nt 11 to-night."
Now, thnt was a curious thing, indeed.
Not only did it npie;ir that my pretense
of being Hall's partner in trade wns com
pletely unmnsked by this man, but he had
my name. Whether such knowledge wns
good for me I could not then say ; but I
made up my mind to act with cunning
and to shield Hall in so far as was possi
"nid your master tell you to wait for
any answer?" I asked suddenly.
"Is it for the likes of me to be advisin'
yer honor? 'Sure,' says he, 'if the gen
tlemnn has the moind to xvroite he'll
wroite, it he tins the moind to come
aboard, he'll come aboard.' "
"Tell your master, with my compli
ments," I said, "that I will come another
time I have business in Paris to-day."
He looked nt me earnestly, and xvhen
he spoke ngain his voice had a fatherly
ring. "If I make bold, it's yer honor's
forgiveness I ask but, if it xx-as me that
wns in Paris I'd stay there."
When he xvas gone, the others, who
had not spoken, turned to me, their eyes
asking for nn explanation.
"One of Hall's friends," I said, trying
to look unconcerned, "the mate on the
vnoht La France the vessel he joins
Roderick tapped the table with his fin
gers; Mary xx-as x-ery white, I thought.
"He knows a queer company," I added,
with a grim attempt at jocularity,
"they're almost as rough as he Is."
"lo you still mean to sail to-night?"
"I must ; I have made a promise to
reach Plymouth without a moment's de

"Oh, but you can't leave Tarls; you

"do and pack your things, Mary; I have
something to say to Mark."
We were nlone, he and I, but there xx-as
between us the first shadoxv that had come
upon our friendship.
"Well," said he. "how much am I to
know? I distrust Hall, who seems to me a
perfect madman. He'll drag you Into

It xvns on Ihe morning of the second
day; the wind plnying fekle from east by
south, nnd the sea ne'.Id wi-h the light
of nn August sun. The yneht lay with
out life in her saili. th" flow of the swell
Isnting Inzily upon her, nnd Ih" great
miiinsnil rocking on the boom. We hnd
Is-en out twenty-four hours, nnd hud not
made n couple of hundred miles. The de
lay angered every mnn nbosrd the (,'elsis,
since every man nlmnrd knew thnt it was
a inn tier 'if concern to rue to overtake
the American y.vht. La France, nnd that
a life might go with long-continued fail
ure. The morning passed, a long morning,
with a sea like a mirror, and the sun nn
n gTent circle of red fire in the haze.
Hour nfter hour we walked from the fore
hatch to the tiller, from the tiller to the
fore-hatch, varying the ererclse with a
full inupeetion of evry crnft thnt showed
als.ve the horizon. At six bells some dark
nnd dirty clouds rose up from the south,
nnd twenty hands pointed to them. Half
an hour later there was a shrill whistling
in the shrouds, and the rain begnn to pat
ter on the deck, while the booms fretted,
and we relieved her in part of her prese
of sail. When the squall struck us at
last, the Channel was foaming with long
lines of choppy sens; snd the sky south
ward was dark as ink.
Iiiiring one hour, when we must have
made eleven knots, the wind blew strong,
and was fresh again after that. Nor did
the breeze fall, but stiffened towards
night, so that in the first bell, when wa
came up from dinner, the Celsis was
straining and foaming as she bent under
her press of canvas, and it needed a sail
or's foot to trend her decks. We had
hardly come above when we heard Ian
"Yacht on the port bow."
"What name?" came from twenty
"La France," said Dan, and the words
had scarce left his lips when the skipper
roared the order :
"Stand by to go about !"
For some minutes the words " iSout
ship" were not spoken. The sehooner
held her course, and rapidly drew up with
the yacht xve had set out to seek. From
the first there was no doubt about her
name, which she displayed in great letters
of gold above her figurehead. When she
had made some few hundred yards to
wards the coast, she jibbed round of a
sudden, with an appalling wrench at the
horse; and there being, as it api?nred, no

throat halyards, the mainsail presently
showed a great rent near the luff, while
the foresail had torn free from the bolt
ropes of the stay, and was presenting a
sorry spectacle ns the yacht went about,
and away towards France again.
The obvious fact that the yacht we had
sought and run down was without living
men upon her decks had taken the lilt
from the seamen's merry tongues, and a
gloom settled on us all. Perhaps it was
more than a mere surmise, for an uncan
ny feeling of something dreadful to come
took hold of me.
"Skipper," said I, "order a boat; I'm
going aboard her."
"When the wind falls, perhaps; but
now !" and he shrugged his shoulders.
As the dark began to fall and the night
breeze to blow fresh, while the yacht
ahead of us swung here and there, almost
making circles about us, xve hove to for
the time and watched her. I begged
Mary to go below, but she receix-ed the
suggestion with merriment.
"Go below, xvhen the men say there'i
fun coming! Why should I go below?"
"Recause it may be serious fun."
The skipper called presently for a blue
flare, which cast a glowing light for many
hundred yards, and still left us uncertain.
"Flash again," said the skipper, and as
the blue light Hashed we saw right ahead
of us the wanderer we sought; but she
was bearing down upon us.
