for The Term of His Natural Life By C H A P T E R V I.— (Continued.) 11« spoke truly. Through the roar V a i heard the rattle o f iroa on iron. « • the guard “ etood to their arms,” and the wedge of gray cloth broke. In sud- den terror of the leveled muskets. There waa an lnatant'a pause, and then old Pine walked, unmolested, down the pris on, knelt by the body o f Itufua Dawea. “ Stand back, my lad s!" he said. “ Take him up, two o f you, and carry him to the door. The poor fellow won't hurt you." Hla orders were obeyed, and the Old man, waiting until hla patient had been safely received outside, raised his hand to command attention. “ I see you know what I have to tell. The fever has broken out. T h at man has got It. It Is absurd to suppose that no one else w ill be seized. I might catch It myself. Y ou are much crowded down here, I know; but. my lads, I can’t help that: I didn’t make the ship, you know. It Is a terrible thing, but you must keep orderly and quiet, and bear It like men. You know what the discipline Is, and It Is not In my power to alter I t I shall do my best for your comfort, and I look to you to help me.” H olding his gray head very erect In deed, the brave old fellow paased Straight down the line, without looking to the right or left. Ha had said Just enough, and he reach ed the door amidst a chorus o f “ B ravo!" ‘ T ru e for you, docther!” and so on. But when he got fairly outside, he breathed more freely. H e bad performed a tick lish task, and he knew it. “ ’Ark at ’em,” growled the Moocher from his corner, “ a-cheerln* at the noos!” “ W alt a bit,” said the aeuter Intelli gence of Jemmy Vetch. “ Give him time.

M n Lionel Crofton, o f the Crofta, Sev- enoaks, K ent— Sevenooks, K ent— Seven It A gleam of light broke In on the dark ness which wrapped Rufus Dawes’ tor tured brain. The man waa John Rex, his berth-mate. W ith an effort he spoke. “ R e x !” “ Yea. yes, I ’ m coming; don't be In a hurry. The sentry's safe, and the how itzer Is but five paces from the door. A rush upon deck, lads, and «he's ours! That ia, mine. Mine and my wife's, Mrs. Lionel Crofton, o f Seven Crofts, no. Oaks—-Sarah Purfoy, lady's maid and nurse— ha! ha!— lady’s maid and nurse!” Thla last sentence contained the name- clue to the labyrinth In which Rufus Dawes’ bewildered Intellects were wan dering. “ Sarah P u rfo y!” H e remem bered now each detail of the conversa tion he had so strangely overheard, and how imperative it was that he should, without delay, reveal the plot that threatened the ship. H ow that plot was to be carried out, he did not pause to consider; he waa conscious that he was hanging over the brink of delirium, and that, unless he made himself understood before his senses utterly deserted him, all was lost. H e attempted to rise, but found that his fever-thralled limbs refused to obey the impulse of his will. H e made an ef fort to speak, but his tongue clove to the roof of hla mouth, and his Jaws stuck together. H e could not raise a finger nor utter a sound. H e closed his eyes with s terrible sigh of despair, and re signed himself to his fate. A t that In stant the door opened. It was 6 o'clock, and Pine had come to have- a last look at his patients before dinner. It seemed that there was somebody with him, for a kind, though somewhat pompous voice remarked upon the scantiness o f accom modation. “ H ere they are,” said Pine; “ six of ’ em. This fellow ” — going to the side of Rex— “ is the worst. I f he had not a constitution like a horse, I don’t thluk he conld live out the night." “ Three, eighteen, seven, four," mut tered R eiy “ dot and carry one. Is thnt an occupation for a gentleman? No, sir. Good night, my lord, good night. H ark! the clock is striking 9; five, six, seven, eight! W ell, you’ ve had your day, and' can’t complain.” “ A dangerous fellow ,” gays Pine, with the light upraised. “ A very dangerous fellow. This is the place, you see— a regular rat hole; but what can one do?' “ Come, let us get on deck,” said V ick ers, with a shudder of disgust. Rufus Dawes felt the sweat break out Into beads on his forehead. They sus- Pacted nothing. They were going away. H e must warn them. W ith a violent e f fort, in his agony he turned over in the bunk, and thrust out his hand from the blankets. “ H alloo! what’s this?” cried Pine, bringing the lantern to bear upon it. “ Lie down, my man. Eh?— water, is It? There, steady with It now;” and he lift ed a pannikin to the blackened, froth- fringed lips. The cool draught moist ened his parched gullet, and the convict made a laat effort to speak. Sarah Purfoy— to-night— the prison — M utiny!” The last word, almost shrieked ont, in the sufferer's desperate efforts to ar ticulate, recalled the wandering senses of John Rex. “ Hush!’ ’ he cried. “ Is that yon. Jem my? Sarah's right. W alt til! she gives the word.” “ H e's raring,” said Vickers. Pine caught the convict by the shoul der. “ W hat do you say. my man? A mutiny o f the prisoners?” W ith his mouth again» and his hands clinched, Rufus Dawes, Incapable of further speech, made a last effort to nod assent, but his head fell upon his breast; the next moment, the flickering light, the gloomy prison, the eager face o f the doctor, and the astonished face o f Vick ers. vanished from before his straining eye«. C H A P T E R V II. I t was late In the afternoon when Sarah Purfoy awoke from her uneasy slumber. She had been dreaming of the deed she was about to do, and was flush ed and feverish, but, mindful o f the consequences w-hich hung upon the suc cess or failure of the enterprise, she rallied herself and ascended, with as calm an air as she could assume, to the deck. The Malabar seemed to be enveloped In an electric cloud, whose sullen gloom a chance spark might flash Into a blaze that should consume her. Th e woman who held her In her hands the two ends o f the chain that would produce this spark looked down Into the barricade. Three men, leaning carelessly against the bulwarks, watched her every motion. ‘T h e re she la, right enough,” growled Mr. Gabbett, ns If in continuation of s previous remark. “ Flash ns ever, and looking this way, too. There, look at that,” he added, as the figure of Maurice F rere appeared side by aide with that of the waiting maid, and the tw o turned away up the deck together Maurice Frere hail come behind her and touched her on the shoulder. Since their conversation the previous evening he had made up his mind to be fooled no longer. T h e girl was evidently play lug with him, and he would show her thnt he was not to be trifled with. “ W ell, Sarah.” “ Well, Mr. Frere,” dropping her hand and turning round with a smile. “ H ow well you are looking to-day Positively lovely. I say, though, what] Is the use of playing fast and loose with a fellow this way?” She cast her eyes down to the deck and a modest flush rose on her cheeks. “ I have so much to do,” she said In half whisper. “ There are so many eves upon mo, I cannot stir without being seen.” She raised her head as she spoke, and to give effect to her words, looked round the deck. H er glance crossed that of the young soldier on the forecastle, r.nd though the distance was too great lor her to distinguish his features, she guessed who he was— Miles was Jealous. Frere, smiling with delight at her change o f manner, came close to her, and wills pered In her ear. She affected to start, and took the opportunity o f exchanging a signal with the Crow. “ I will walk with you at 8 o'clock.’ said alia. •Th ey relieve guard at 8." he said deprecatlngly.

H e then doubled the guards, took the keys o f the prison him self from the non-commissioned officer whose duty It was to keep them, and saw that the howitzer on the lower deck was loaded with grape.
