CHAPTER IV. (Continued.)
Yolande went buck to her father, who,
though closely watching her, wn stand
Ins with tho Grahams; and sho told
them of the mission with which aha hnd
!ccn Intrusted. At lust tho crowd began
to rosolvo Itself Into those who were go
ing nial thoso who were remaining be
hind. Mrs. Grahnm was In despair be
cnuse of the non-nppearaneo of her broth
er. "I'll tell yon what It Is," said Col.
Graham, "I Itellevo that ho has ncrer
heard that .tho ships don't stop at
Southampton now. Never mind, Polly;
ho can go oTcrland If ho wanta to catch
us up at Cairo."
At Tilllinry there was the usual scram
ble of getting tho luggage transferred to
tho noisy Uttlo tender. When, after lone
delays, tho tender was drawing near the
side of the huge steamer, of course all
eyes were turned to tho decks above,
where, the picturesque costumes of the
lascar' crow were tho most conspicuous
points of color.
"There he Is I can make hl out,"
observed Col. Graham, as he regarded
a group of young men who were up on
the hurricane, deck, leaning over the rail,
and watching the approach of the ten
der. There is Jack I Mucins and young

Mrs. Graham: ami was humorous In his
ijulet, half-sardonic way, and was alto-

the appointments of the ship. To fancy

And at dinner, too. In the evening It
was a delight to Yolande to sit next him
and listen to his chuckles and his little
Jokes. Care seemed to have left him al
together. The night, when they went on
deck again, was dark; but a dark night
pleased him as much at anything. Yo-
lanue was walking with him.
And then they sat down with their
friends; and Mr. Graham had much to
talk about. Yolande tat silent. Far
away In the darkness a long, thin, dull
lino of gold was visible; she had been
told that these were the lights of Hast
ings. It Is a strange thing to sail past
a country In tho night time and to think
of all the beating human hearts It con
tains of the griefs, and despairs, and
hushed joys, all hidden away there in
the silence. And perhaps Yolande was
thinking most of all of the rtoor mother
whose name she did not know, whom
sne snouid never see again but whose
glass and all a regular gathering of the J heart she knew right well was heavy
" wiui us acning sorrow, it
was her flrst actual contact with human
Ily this time everybody was scram
bling on the paddle boxes of tho tender,
and from thence ascending to the deck of
the steamer. The Master of Lynn was
standing by tho gangway, awaiting his
sister. He was a young man of four or
five and twenty, slim, well built, with
pale, olive complexion and a pefectly
clean-shaven face; and he had the square
forehead, the well-marked eyebrows,
and the pleasant gray eyes with dark
lashes that his sister had.
"How are you, Graham? How are
you. Polly V he said.
"Well, I like your coolness!" his sis
ter said, angrily, "Why were you not
It was the third evening out that she
had to put tho flowers overboard on the
wide and sad and uncertain grave. She
did not wish anyone to see her, some
how; she could not make It a public
ceremony this compliance with the pa
thetic, futile wishes of the poor mother.
She had most carefully kept the flower
sprinkled with water, and. despite of
that, they were sadly faded and shrlr
eled, but she had purchased another bas
ketful at Malta, and these were fresh
enough. What mattered? The time was
too jague; the vessel's course too uncer-

come chiefly for 'tho voyage Itself, And
UAvnn i life the,; very munll Incidents of
which excited Interest efutply because
people hnd plenty of time to consider
them and each other,
There was no doubt Hint Yolande hnd
become n pretty general favorite) for she
found herself very much at linmoi mid
she put nslde n good deal of thnt reserve
which she assumed In traveling on land,
These people could in tin sense bo con
sidered strangers; they were all loo kind
to her. The ship's oillcers brought her
the charts out of the chart room, to show
her how far the vessel hnd got un her
course. 'Die captain allowed her to go
on the bridge, and gave her his own gins
when n distant sail was to be seen. And
the young soldiers, when they were not In
the smoking room, and when they were
not picking up rope quoits for Mrs. Gra
ham, had nn eye on tho many starved
bints fluttering nbout. and when titer
could they caught one and brought It
to Miss Wlntrrliourue, who was glad to
take the wild-eyed, Muttering wanderer
down into (lie saloon and put Us beak
lor a second or two Into a glass of fresh
water. Once or twice Yolande caught
one of these swallows.
Day after day passes! without change.
The young Master of Lynn very dili
gently, and with a Jacob like modesty
and patience, strove to win Yolnlide'
regard; but although she was always
most friendly toward hint and pleased
to chat with him, or walk the hurricane
deck with him, she seemed to treat him
precisely ns she treated any of tho oth
ers. If there was one whom she espe
cially favored, It was Col. Graham,
whoso curt, sardonic speeches amused
At last they arrived at Port Said, that
curious, rectnngular-strected. shanty-built
place, that looks like Cheyenne painted
pink and whlto; and of course there was
much wonder and Interest lit beholding
land again, and green water, and the
swarming boats with their Greeks and
Maltese and Negroes nnd Arabs, all In
their various costume. Hut It was with
a far greater Interest that they regarded
the picture round them when the vessel
had started again, and was slowly and
silently stealing away Into the wide and
lonely desert laud, by means of this wat
er highway. The Sucx canal had been
rather n commonplace phrase to Yolande;
mixed up with monetary affair mostly;
and suggestive of machinery. Hut all
this was strange nnd new; and the vessel
was going so slowly that the engines
were scarcely heard; she seemed to glide
into this dream-world of silver sky and
far-reaching wastes of yellow sand. It
was so silent, and so wide, and so lone
ly. For the most part the horiton line
was a mirage, and they watched the con
tinual undulations of the silver-white
waves; and even the strange reflections
of what appeared to be Islands; but here
there was not even a paint to break the
monotony of the deicrt swly the little
tamarisk bushes dotting the sand. From
n marsh a red legged flamingo rose, slow
ly winging it way to the south. Then
a string of camels came nlong with forward-stretching
heads and broad, slow-
pacing feet; the Hednulns either perched
on tho backs of the animals or striding
through the sand by their side, their
faces looking black In contrast to their
white wide-flowing garments. Ami so
they gilded through the silent, gray,
Tho night saw another scene. They
were anchored in another part of the
canal, where the banks were high and
steep; and the moonlight was surpass

selfishly allowed her to carry. "I went

Yolande stole away to her own cabin,
and carefully and religiously opened the
little basket that held the flowers, to
see whether they might not be the bet

Mr. Wlnterbourne quickly got up and
went to one of tho ports; there, undoubt

It wa the remembrance of the mother
she was thinking of. .
Sho chose a moment when everyone
wa down below at dinner, and the deck
was quite deserted. She took the two
little baskets to the rail; and there, Tery
slowly aud reverently, she took out hand
ful after handful of the flowers and drop
ped them down on the waves, and watch
ed them go floating and floating out and
out on the swaying water. The tears
were running down her face; and she
hnd forgotten whether there was any
body by or not. Hho was thinking of
tho poor woman In England. Would
she know? Could she see? Va she
sure that her request would not be for
gotten? And Indeed she had not gone so
lar wrong when she bad trusted to the
look of Yolande' face.
the moonlight threw the shadow of the
rigging nf the ship so sharply that every
spar and rope was traced on the silver
clear sand. There was an almost op
pressive silence In this desert solitude;

the tamarisk bushes ome said It was

Hand-mountain liko a ghost. And in the
midst of this weird cold moonlight and
silence these people began to get up a
dance alter dinner. I lie piano was
brought on deck from the saloon. The
women folk had put on their prettiest
costumes. There had bes-n perhaps a lit
tle begging and half promising going on
beforehand. The smoking room was dis

been slung; no that when the ladle he

she spoke with an air of resentment.

so much in praise of Yolande, or perhaps
she wished her brother to b cautious; or
perhaps she was merely gratuitously ma

that she was engaged, and has been en

He was struck silent by this fierce
suggestion; It bewildered him for a sec
ond or two. Then he exclaimed:
"Oh, thai Is absurd perfectly absurd!
I know she Is not."
"It would Ik a Joke," continued his
sister, with a sardonic smile, "if that
were the explanation of tho wonderful
