A Vlain Talc of Strange
Happenings on the Sea
fhirinp some days 1 m no,niore of the
doctor, or of ,inyoii. about the ship save
nn old negro, w ho t-eoaiuo my servant. He
was not an unkindly baking being
f age. and somewhat feeble in his
notions; but lie never opened hit lip
when I questioned him. and gave tl plain
"Yes" or "No" to any demand.
It must haw been on tho fourth day
rfler my capture thit the nameless ship,
which hitherto " not been speeding at
r.n abnormal pace, began to go very fast.
Finally, by the consciousness that the
ship had stopped, and that there was
much agitation on dock, 1 looked from
my window and observed the cause of the
confusion, for there, ahead of us mile
t more, was one of the largest ice-bergs
1 have ever soon. I watched intently, hop
ing to see other bergs that should toll me
li.ur fur we hid pine towards the North,
but the night fed suddenly. I had a no
tion that Captain Black was running to
hiding; and his hiding place lay to the
north, far above the course even of Canadian-bound
The time passed, the weather growing
colder day by day. the bergs more fre
quent about my windows; until on the
wiling of the seventh day the ship stop
ped suddenly. The work of mooring was
not a long one. On the next morning I got
up at daybreak, and looked eagerly from
my spying place; but I could discern only
a blank cliff of rock, tho ship being now
moored against the very side of it. The
negro brought a nort with my breakfast :
and I read an invitation to dine with
Captain Black that evening. I welcomed
the prospect of change, when the old man
threw open the door and said, "The Mas
ter waits I"
He led the way up the companion lad
der, which was, in fact, a broad staircase,
elaborately lit with the electric light : and
so brought me to the deck, where there
was darkness save in one spot above the
fore-turret. There a lantern threw a great
volume of white light which spread out
upon the sea, and showed me at once that
we were in a cove of some breadth, sur
rounded by prodigiously high cliffs : and
the light being focussed straight across the
bay, disclosed a cleft in these rocks lead
ing apparently to a further cove beyond.
I had scarce lime to get o'her than a
rough idea of ihe whole situation, for a
boat was waiting at the gangway. The
men gave way at once, keeping in the
course of the searchlight, and rowing
straight to the cleft in the cliffs, through
which they passed; and so left the light
and entered a narrower fjord. This sec
ond cove opened after a while into a
lake, above wh"Be shores I observed many
twinkling lights, which seemed to come
from windows far up the face of the cliff.
There was a rough landing stage, cut in
the rock, and an iron stairway led thence
to the chambers which evidently exited
When we had come to shore, and had
been received there by several men who
Leld lanterns, the negro pointed to the
iron stairway and told me to mount ; he
following me to the summit, where there
was a platform and an iron door. The
door opened as we arrived before it, and
there standing by it 1 found the young
. "Come in," he said, "they're waiting
for yoa."
We were in a broad passage lit by the
electric light a passage cut in a crystal
like rock, whose surface had almost the
lustre of a mirror. The passage led np
to a second door this one built of fine
American walnut ; and we passed through
It at once into a roiwn where I was as
tounded to see indisputable evidence of
civilization and of reflneruent. The whole
chamber was hung round with superb
skins, the white fur of the polar bear pre
dominating; but there were couches cusn
ioned with deep brown seal ; and the same
glossy skin was laid upon the floor in
bo many layers that the footfall was
noiseless and pleasantly luxuriant. The
furniture was both niodorn and
The room had a solitary occupant. One
slanee assured o. that 1 was face to face
with CaDtain tfuctt toe captain uia i
liad seen in Paris; but yet not the same,
for all the bravado and rough speech
which which then fell from his lips was
wanting. When be stepped forward and
I.IH out his hand to me, I had the mind
nlmost to draw back from him, for
Vnew that the man had crime heavy upon
liim ; but a second thought convined me
of the folly of making a scene at such a
moment : so I took the great hard hand
and looked him full in the face.
"I am glad to see' you." said he; "din
ner waits us;" and with that we paused
Into another chamber containing a dining
table laid for four persons in a very ele
pant manner. The only servant was
iriant black, and the guests of the Cap
tain were the young doctor, the Scotsman
known as Dick the Banter, ana myself.
The captain made no attempt to con
real information from me. The first oc
casion of his speaking during dinner was
in answer to a remark of mine that
found the room very pleasantly warm.
"Yes," he said, "you must feel the
imnire. You know where you are, of
fnurae. This Is the west coast of Green
land, and there is a Danish settlement not
fifty miles from you although we don'
leave cards on our neighbors Well, !
won't have you hurried, and you're my
pueut until I put a certain straignt ques
tion to you. When that happens you
think twice about the answer.
"This pleasant party must disperse,"
li said to m later; "you can go to the
quarters we have provided for you, unless
you would like to see more of us."
"I should like to aee everything you
oan show me," I replied, being aflame
,ith curiosity to know all that the strange
..,i,. nuii teach me: and then he
wade a motion for the others to follow,
and we passed from the room.
ThA " WAV from the dining room
ibrouga a long parage lighted with arc
lamps at intervals, and having the door
of many txmi on tho right hand side
of it. Several of these doors were otti :
and I saw the interiors of well furnished
Ivedroom. of smaller sitting rooms, and
of a bountiful. y furnished billiard room.
At the end of the passage we desivnded a
flight of stairs to another landing. This
proved the way to a small stretch of
beach, and here I found several substan
tial buildings of stone, evidently for the
use of Black's company. The largest of
the houses seemed to be a kind of hull,
well lighted by arc lamp. Into this we
passed, lifting a heavy curtain of skins:
and sea'.'.l there, on all sorts of rough
loungvs anil benches were the men I had
seen in Paris, with fifty or sixty other,
no less ferocious booking.
"Men." said Hlnck. "I want to tell you
that we've got a stranger with us: but
he's here to stay, and he's my charge.
"lias he jined?" aske.l a blear-yed
man. who mul eyed nie witn imi.n curios
ity: but the captain answered:
That's my affar. and you keep your
tongue still if you don t want me to cut
it out : he'll join us by-and-by."
That's agon rules," said Koaring John.
'Agon what?" asked Plack in a tone
of thunder. ,
Agen rules," replied Iloaring John :
his man broke my jaw, and I 11 pay
him. or. you guess."
Maybe you're right. No stranger
stays here unless he joins, except them
from the mines but I've my own ideas
on that, ana when tne tune comes I n
abide bv what's done. If any man would
ike to dictate to tne, let him step out."
The fellow slunk away under the
threat. Hlack was master beyond all
question, and he protected me.
We went back with him to the long pas-
age where I had seen the doors ot m-n
chambers, and there he bade me good
night. The doctor showetl me into a room
cut in the solid rook, but with windows
towards the sea. Put first he said:
Y'ou must have been born under a
lucky star; you're the first man to whom
Black ever gave an hour's grace."
The bed in which I lay was wondrous
soft and downy ; and the cold gave me
eep sleep, so that I awoke at a late hour
to find the sun streaming through my
rock window, and the negro telling me
that my bath was ready. When we re
turned to my sleeping place, I found the
bed curtained off, leaving a commodious
apartment, with books, armchairs, a writ
ing table and a fireplace, in which a coal
fire burned brightly. Put the greater sur
prise was tne view rrom my window
over a sunlit ijora, away to mountain
peaks, snow-capped ami shining; and be
tween them to a vista of an endless snow
plain, white and dazzling.
The doctor came to me while I was at
breakfast. "The captain sends you his
compliments," he said. "The men are in
clined to resent the exception that has
been made in yoar cas;. I am afraid it
will lead to trouble unless you choose to
close with the offer that Plack makes to
'How has an exception been made in
my case, and wnai is ine ouer :
'Captain Black has brought thirty or
forty Englishmen of your position to this
place within the last three years : not one
of them has lived twenty hours from the
time he set foot in the rock house. The
time will come when you must sign an
agreement such as I have signed, and
these men have signed and I don't be
lieve that you will refuse.
'Y'ou lay it all down very clearly, I
replied, but you can nave my answer
now if you like.

inspiring. I stood entranced with the
vigor born of the life-giving breeze. At
last he touched me upon the shoulder, and
pointed to where the nameless ship lay
snugly moored.
"Look, he said, at the Instrument of
our power, is not sne mugnincenif un
her we defy the urorld. Aboard her, we
are superior to fleets and nations; we
laugh at the fastest cruisers and the big

like, the guns uncovered as the men work
ed at them.
"She Is a wonderful ship,' said I, 'and
built of metal I never met with."
"Iler hull is constructed of phosphor
bronze," he answered, "and she is driven
by gas. It was one of Black's Inspira
tions to choose Greenland for his hole;
it is one of the few comparatively unin
habited countries in the world where coal
is to be bad."
"Who are your miners?" I asked.
"Honest British seamen whose voyages
have been Interrupted. We give them the
alternative of work in the mine, or their
liberty on the snow yonder."
"But how can they live in such a place?"
"They don't live," said he. "They die
like vermin."
For some days I saw no more of Doctor
Osbart or of Captain Black. Once or
twice I uw the wan "Four-Eyes," and
from him gained a few answers to my
questions. He told me that Captain Black
kept up communication with Europe by
two email screw eteamers disguised as

Towards evening, when I was weary
with the watching, there was the sound
of a gunshot below in the creek : mid I
went to thy window, and saw the whole of
a cruel scene. Some twenty of these sea
men, black as they had come from the
coal shaft, were going ashore from a long
boat, while an electric titunck was bring
ing twenty more from the outer creek
where the nameless ship lay. But the
men who had first landed were surround
ed by the others of Black's iMinpany ;
and were being driven towards the hills,
and so to the great desolate plain of
snow where no human thing could long
retain life. The pirates hit lustily with
tho butt ends of their pistols; the honest
fellows used their tints, and many a man
thev laid his length upon the rock. Inch
by inch they gave way. were driven to
wards the ravines and the countless miles
of snow plain; and as the battle rage.l,
the armed liegan to shoot with murderous
purpose. IloHth at last was to the

Of the doors about, the majority were

gan to feel my way iu the blinding dark.
My first proceeding was to run upon some
si ght article ot furniture and to overturn
it. Twice I went round the room, and
could not put my hand upon the rules .
but at the third attempt I found them,
and gave a sigh of relief. Then an over
whelming terror struck ine chill and pow
erless. My sigh was echoed from the cor
ner by the window; and a low chuckle of
laughter followed it. 1 stood as a mau
petrified, my hand upon a gun. but my
nerves straiued to a tension that was hor
rible to bear.
In another moment the electric light
flooded the chamber, and 1 saw macs
sitting at his writing table, observing me.
a jeer upon his lips, and all the termite
malice of his nature written in his keen
and mocking eyes. He had a revolver
cocked at his left hand, but a pen in his
right ; while manuscript lay before turn,
n that he must have been in the nxm for
some time, and had extinguished his light
only at my coming. He leaned over the
table, and drew near to it a lounge on
which the skin of a polar bear was spread.
