In the prison of tho 'twoon-deck
, reigned n darkness pregnant with mur-
i-.fV nium. aiio scmrr ni uio entrance iu
tho natcnway wni supposed to 'prevent
rtho prisoners from making a noise," but
lie put a very liberal Interpretation upon
tho clause, and no long tho tho prison
ers refrained from shouting, yelling and
fighting ho did not disturb them.
To one coming In from tho upper nlr,
tho place would have seemed In pitchy
darknosj but tho convict eye, accus
JfBmed to the sinister twilight, vrai en
abled to discern surrounding object
with tolerable distinctness. Tho prison
yras about fifty feet long and fifty feet
wide, and ran tho full height of the
'tweon-decks, Tho barrlcado was loop
holed here and there, and tho planks
were In some places wldo enough to ad
mit a musket barrel. On tho aft stde,
next tho soldiers' berths, was n trap
door, llko tho stoko-holo of a furnace.
, Xt first sight this appeared to bo con
trived for tho humane purpose of ven
tilation, but a second dance dispelled
tuts weak conclusion. The opening was
t just largo enough to admit tho muulc
of a small howitzer, secured on the deck
v below. In case of a mutiny, tho sol
diers could sweep the prison from end
"' to end with grnpeshot. Such fresh air
as there was, filtered through the loop-
holes, and came. In somewhat larger
5i, Quantity, through a wind-sail passed In-
to tho prison from the hatchway. Hut
Mho wind-sail being necessarily at one
'r end only of the place, tho air It brought
was pretty well absorbed by the twenty
or thlrtr lucky fellows near It, and the
, other hundred and fifty did not come so
well on -i.no scume were open, uui
as the row of bunks had been built
ilnst them, the air they brought was

Then berth wero twenty
right In nuinlwr, each containing six
men. They ran la a double tier round
three sides of the prison, twenty at each
side, and eight afllxcd to that portion
of the forward barricade opposite the
door. Kach berth was presumed to be
fire feet six Inches square, but the ne
cessities of stowage had deprived them
of six Inches, and even under that prca-
rgi sure iwnrs iuku hito i-uujiciicu iu tici

Blunt nodded toward the Tolumo of

"So," says I'lne. gloomily. "I sup

In tho mcauuhllo the two boats mada
straight for tho red column that uprose
like a gigantic torch orcr tho silent sea.
Tho pull was a long and a weary one.
Once fairly away from tho protecting
sides of tho vessel that had homo them
thus far on their dismal journey, the
adventurers seemed to have come Into
a new atmosphere. Tho Immensity of
tho ocean over which they slowly moved
revealed Itself for the first time.
Tho great sky uproso from this silent
sea without a cloud. The stars hung
low In Its expanse, burning In a violet
mist of lower ether. The heavens were
emptied of sound, and each dtp of the
oars was re-echoed In space by a suc
cess'on of subtle harmonies. As the
blades struck the dark water, It flashed
fire, and the tracks of the boats resem
bled two sea snakes writhing with silent
undulations through a take of quicksil
ver. At last the foremost boat came to
a sudden pause. Itest gave a cheery
shout and passed her. steering straight
Into the broad track of crimson that al
ready reeked on the sea ahead.
"What Is It?" he cried.
Itut he heard only a smothered growl
from Krere. It was, Iu fact, nothing of
consequence only a prisoner "giving
"What's the matter with your' says
Frere. "Oh, you. Is It? Dawes! Of
course, Dawes. I never expected any
thing better from such a skulking hound.
Come, this sort of nonsense won't do
with me. It Isn't as nice as lolloping
about the hatchways, I dar y. but
you'll have to go on, my fine fellow."
"He seems sick, sir," said a compas
"Sick! Not he. 8hammlng. Come,
give way, now! Put your backs Into It!"
And the convict having picked up his
oar, the boat shot forward again. Hut,
for all Mr. Frere's nrglng, he could not
recover the way he bad lost, and Hest
was the first to run In under the black
cloud that hung over the crimsoned
"Keep wide," ho said. "If there aro
many fellows yet aboard, they'll swamp
ui; and I think there must be, as wo
haven't met the boats," and then raising
his voice, as tho exhausted crow lay on
their oars, he balled tho burning ship.
Rha Trim huceclumsllr built rraael.
I with great breadtn or beam, and a lofty
deck. Strangely enough, though tbey
I bad so lately seen tho fire, sho was al
ready a wreck, and appeared to be com
pletely deserted. The chief hold of the
fire was amidships, and tho lower deck
was one njais of flame. The fire roared
like a cataract, and lingo volumes of
flame-flecked smoko poured up out of
he bold, and rolled away In a low-lying
ilack cloud over the sea.
I As Frere's loat pulled slowly round
er stern, he hailed the deck again and
'gain. Still there was no answer; and
bough the flood of light that dyed the
mter" blood-red struck out every rope
and spar distinct and clear, his straining
eyes could see no living soul aboard. As
they came nearer, they could distinguish
the gilded loiters of her name.
"What Is It, men?" cried Frere, his
voice almost drowned amidst the roar of
the flames. "Can you see?"
Itufus Dawes, Impelled, It would seem,
by some strong Impulse of curiosity,
stood erect, and shaded his eyes with
Frero gasped. The nydaspes! The
ship In which his cousin Klchard Devlne
had sailed! The ship for which those
In England might now look In vain! The
Hydaspes, which Something he bad
heard during the speculations as to this
missing cousin flashed across him.
"Hack water, men! Hound with her!
Pull for your lives. The Hydaspes! I
know her. She Is bound for Calcutta,
and she has five tons of powder aboard!"
There was no need for more words.
The single sentenro explained tho whole
mystery of her desertion. The crew had
taken to the boats on the first alarm,
and had left their death-fraught vessel
to her fate. They were miles off by
The boats toro through the water.
Eager as tho men had been to come,
they were more eager to depart. For ten
minutes or more not a word was spoken.
With straining arms nud laboring chests,
tho rowkers tugged at the o-irs, their
eyes fixed on tho lurid mass they were
leaving. Frero nnd Host, with their
faces turned back to tho terror they Aw!
from, urged tho men to greater effort.
Already tho flames had lipped the ling:
already the outlines of tho stern-carvings
were blurred by tho lire. Another
momont and' all would bo over. Ah!
It had come nt last!
A dull rumbling sound; tho burning
ship parted asunder; a pillar of fire
flecked with black masses that ware
beams and planks, rose up out nt the
ocean; tliero was a terrific crash, as
though spa and sky ivcro coming togeth
er; nnd then a mighty mountain of water
rose, advanced, caught, nnd passed them,
and thny were alone- deafened, stun
ned and breathless, Iu audiltiu horror
of thickest djrknoss. and a sllencn like
that of tho tomb.- The splauhlng of the

On board tho Mnlabar two men paced

melted away, and thou a otig. low. fur
off streak of palo yellow light Honied
on tho eastern horlson. Hy nud by tho
water sparkled, nnd tho sen changed
color, turning from black to. yellow, nnd
from yollow to lucid green. Tho man
at tho mainmast hailed tho deck. Tho
bonis wero Iu sight, nud ns they enino
toward tho shin, tho bright wnler flash

spectators hanging uvcr tho bulwarks
choered and waved their hats.
"Not a soul!" cried Hlunt. "No one

Tho boats drew alongside, nnd In a
few seconds Frero was upon deck.
"No use," cried Frere, shivering. "Wo
only just had tliuo to get away. The
nearest thing In tho world, sir. They
must havo taken to the boats."
"Then thsy can't bo far off," cried
Hlunt, s cejilng the horlson with his
glass. "They must have pulled all tho
way, for tliero hasn't been enough wind
to till a hollow tooth with."
"Perhaps they pulled In the wrong di
rection," snld Frere. "They had a good
four hours' start of us, you know."
Then Hest came up nud told tho story
to a crowd of eager listeners. Tho sail
ors having hoisted nnd secured the boats
wero hurried off to the forecastle, nud
tho four convicts were taken In charge
nnd locked below again.
"You had better go and turn In,
Frere," said Pine, grullly. "It's no use
whistling for a wind hero all day."
Pino took n couple of turns up nnd
down tho deck, nnd then, catching
Hlunt s eye, stopped In front of Vlckcrs.
"ou may think It n hard thing to
say. Captain Vlckers, but It's Just ns
well If we don t find thco Poor fellows,
We havo quite enough on our hands as
It Is. The fever has broken out."
Vlckers raised his brows. He had no
experience of such things; and though
the Intelligence was startling, the crowd
ed condition of the prison rendered It
easy to bo understood, and he appre
hended no danger to himself.
"It is only In the prison, as yet," says
Pine, with a grim emphasis on the word;
"but there Is no saying how long It
may stop there. I have got three men
down as It Is."
"Well, sir, all authority In the. matter
Is In your hands. Any suggestions you
make I will, of course, do my best to
"Thank ye. I must have more room
In thO hospital, to begin with. The sol-
Hers must llo a little closer. And you

of his child. "Do you think there Is

"Yes. she's all right. I'vo no doubt.
