for The Term of Jis Natural Life
By MARCUS CLARKB
CHAPTKIt XII. (Continued.)
Hy and by, having eaten of this mir
aculous provender, tho Hor creature be
Run to understand what had taken place.
The coal working were abandoned; the
new commandant had probably other
work for his beasts of burilen to exe
cute, ami an absconder wouKI Ih safe
here for a few hours at leant. Hut he
mint not stay. For him there was no
rest. If ho thought to cscspe, It be
hooved him to commence hU Journey at
once. Here was provision for hta need.
The foixl before him represented the
ratlona of lx men. Wan It not possible
to cross the deort that lay between him
and freedom on such fare? The very
auppositlon made his heart beat faster.
It turely was possible. Twenty miles a
day was very easy walking. Taking a
piece of tick from tho ground, he made
tho calculation In the sand. Eighteen
daya. and twenty miles a day three
hundred and sixty miles. More than
enough to take him to freedom. It could
bo done! With prudence. It could be
done! He must bo careful and abstem
ious. Having come to this resolution, the
next thing was to disencumber himself
of his Irons. This was more easily done
than he expected. He found In the shed
an Iron gad, and with that and a stoue
he drove out the rivets.
Refore dawn the next morning he had
traveled ten miles, and by husbanding
his food he succeeded, by the night of
the fourth day. In accomplishing forty
more. Foot-sore and weary, ho lay In a
thicket, and felt at last that bo was be
yond pursuit. The next day ho ad
vanced more slowly. The. path termin
ated In a glade, and at the bottom of
this glade was something that fluttered.
Knfus Dawes pressed forward, and
stumbled over a corpse!
He recognized the number Imprinted
on the coarse cloth at that which had
designated the younger of the two men
who had escaped with Gabbett. He was
standing on the place whsre a murder
had been committed! A murder! and
what else? Thank God, the food h
carried was not yet exhausted! Ho
turned and fled, looking back fearfully
as be went.
Crashing through scrub and brake,
torn, bleeding and wild with terror, he
reached a spur of the range, and looked
around him. He raised his eyes, and
right against blm, like a long dull sword,
lay the narrow steel-blue reach of the
harbor from which he had escaped. One
darker speck moved on the dark water.
It was the Osprey making for the
Gates. It seemed that ho could throw a
atone upon ber deck. A faint cry of rage
escaped him. During the last three days
In the bush he must have retraced his
steps, and returned upon his own track I
to the settlement! Moro than half his I
allotted time had passed, and be was not I
yet thirty miles from his prison.
For four days he wandered aimlessly
through the bush. At last, on the twelfth
day from his departure from the Goal
Head, he found himself at the foot of
Mount Direction, at the head of the
peninsula which makes the western aide
of the harbor. His terrible wandering
had but led him to make a complete
circuit of the settlement, and the next
night brought him round the shores of
III relies Inlet to the landing place oppo
site Sarah Island. His stock of pro
visions bad been exhausted for two days,
and be was savage with hunger, ne no
longer thought of suicide. His dom
inant Idea was now to get food. He
would do as many others had done be
fore him give himself up to be flogged
and fed. When he reached the landing
place, however, the guard house was
empty. He looked across at the Island
prlsou, and saw no sign of life. The
settlement was deserted!
The shock of this discovery almost de
prived him of reason. For days, that
had seemed centuries, he had kept life
In his Jaded and lacerated body solely
by the strength of his fierce determina
tion to reach the settlement; and now
that he bad reached It, after a Journey
of unparalleled horror, he found It de
serted. He struck himself to see if he
was not dreaming. He refused to be
lieve his eye-sight. He shouted, screamed
and waved his tattered garments In the
At last the dreadful truth forced Itself
upon him. He retired a few paces, and
then, with a horrible cry of furious des
pair, stumbled forward toward the edge
of the little reef that fringed the shore.
Just aa bo was about to fling himself
for the second time Into tho dark water,
his eyes, sweeping In a last long look
around the bay, caught sight of a strange
appearance on the left born of the sea
beach. A thin blue streak, uprising
from behind the western arm of the little
Inlet, hung In the still air. It was the
smoke of a Are.
The dying wretch felt Inspired with
new hope. God had sent him a direct
Ign from heaven. The tiny column of
bluish vapor seemed to him as glorious
as the pillar of fire that led the Israel
ites. There were yet human beings near
him! And turning his face from the
hungry sea, he tottered, with the last
effort of his falling strength, toward the
blessed token of their presence.
Frero bad gone on a brief fishing ex
pedition. At last a peremptory signal
warned him. It was the sound of a mus
ket fired on board the brig. Mr. Dates
was getting impatient, and with a scowl
Frere drew up bis Hues, and ordered the
two soldiers to pull for the vessel.
The Osprey yet Mt motionless on the
water, and her barn mast gave no sign
of making sail. To tho soldiers, pulling
with their backs to her, tho musket-shot
seemed the most ordinary occurrence In
tho world. Suddenly, however, they no
ticed a change of expression In the sullen
face of their commander. Frvre, sitting
In the stem-sheets, with his face to the
Osprey, had observed a peculiar appear
ance on her decks. The bulwarks were
every now and then topped by straugo
figures, who disappeared as suddenly as
they came, and a faint murmur of voices
floated across the Intervening sea. Pres
ently the report of another musket-shot
echoed among the hills, and something
dark fell from the side of the vessel
Into the water. Krere, with mingled
alarm and Indignation, sprnng to his
feet, and, shading his eyes with his hand,
looked toward the brig. The soldiers,
resting on their oars. Imitated his ges
ture, and tho whale-boat, thus thrown
out of trim, rocked from side to side
dangerously, A moment's anxious pause,
and then another musket-shot, followed
oy a woman s shrill scream, explained
all. The prisoners had seized the brig!
"QIvo wayl" cried Frore. pale with rage
and apprehension, and tho soldiers, real
lied at once tho full terror of their po
sotlon, forced the heavy whale-boat
through tho water as fast as the one
miserable pair of oars could tako her.
Mr. Hates, affected by the Insidious
Influenco of tho hour, and lulled Into a
sense of false security, had gone below
to tell hU little playmato that she would
soon be on her way to tho Holtart Town
oT which she had heard so much, aud,
taking advantage of his absence, the sol
dier not on guard went to the forecastle
to hear the prisoners singing. He found
the ten together. In high good humor.
While he listened James I.esly, William
Cheshire, William Itussen, John Fair
and James Harker slipped to tho hatch
way and got upon deck. Harker reached
the aft-hatchway as the soldier who was
on guard turned to complete his walk,
and passing bis arm round his neck,
pulled him down before he could utter
a cry. in the confusion of the moment
the man loosed his grasp of the musket
to grapple with his unseen antagonist,
and Fair, snatching up the weapon,
swore to blow out his brains If ho raised
a finger. Beelng the sentry thus se
cured, Cheshire leaped down the after
hatchway and passed up the muskets
from the arm-racks to I.esly and Itussen.
Anere were three muskets In addition
to the one taken from the sentry, and
Harker. leaving bis prisoner In charge
of Fair, selxed one of them and ran to
the companion-ladder. Itussen, left un
armed by this maneuver, appeared to
know his own duty. He came back to
the forecastle, and passing behind the
listening soldier, touched the singer on
the shoulder. This was the aDDolnted
signal, and John Hex. suddenlr tennln
atlng his song with a laugh, presented
his fist In the face of the gaping Grimes,
vio noiser he cried; "the brig's ours."
and ere Grimes could reply he was seized
by Lyon and Hltey and bound securely.
-Come on, lads!" saya Rex, "and pass
the prisoner down here. We've got her
time time, I'll go ball!" In obodleneo to
this order, the now gagged sentry was
flung down the fore-hatchway, and the
hatch secured. "Stand on the hatch
way, Porter," cries Rex again; "and If
those fellowa come up knock, 'em down
with a handspike. Lesly and Itussen,
forward to the companion-ladder! Lyon,
keep a lookout for the boat, and If she
comes too near, fire!"
Aa he spoke the report of the first
musket rang out. Darker had apparent
ly fired up the companion-hatchway.
When Mr. Hates had gone below, he
found Sylvia curled up on the cushions
of the stateroom, reading. "Well,
missy?" he said, "we'll soon be on our
way to papa."
Sylvia answered by asking a question
altogether foreign to the subject. "Mr.
Rates," said she, pushing tho hair out
of ber bluo eyes, "what'a a coraclo?"
"A which'" asked Mr. Haaes.
"A coracle. C-o-r-a-c-l-e," said she,
spelling It slowly. "I want to know."
The bewildered Rates shook his head.
"Never heard of one, missy," said he,
bending over the book. "What does It
" The Ancient RrJtons.' " said Hylvla,
reading gravely, " 'were llttlo better than
barbarians. Tbey painted their bodies
with woad' that's blue stuff, you know,
Mr. Hates 'and seated In their light cor
acles of skin stretched upon slender
wooden frames, mutt bavo presented a
wild and savage appearance.' "
"Well," said Rates, "I think It's a car
rlage, missy. A sort of pheayton, as
they call It."
Sylvia, hardly satisfied, returned to
the book. It was a little, mean-looking
volume a "Child's History of England"
and after perusing It a while with
knitted brows, she burst into a childish
"Why, tar dear Mr. Rates!" she cried,
waving the history above her head In
triumph, "what a, pair of geese we arel
A carriage! Oh, you silly man! It's a
"Is It?" said Mr. nates, In admiration
of the Intelligence of his companion.
"Who'd ha' thought that now?" and ho
mas about to laugh also, when, raising
bis eyes, be saw In the open doorway
the figure of James Darker, with a mus
ket in his hand.
"nallol What'a this? What do you
do here, sir?"
"Sorry to disturb yer," says tho con
vict, with a grin, "but you must come
along of me, Mr. Hates."
Dates, at once comprehending that
some terrible misfortune had occurred,
did not lose his presence of mind. One
of the cushions of th couch was under
his right hand, aud xnntchlug It up, lit
flung It nenw-t the little en Mil full In
tho face of the eetited prisoner Tho
soft mass struck tho mini with form
sunlelent to blind him for nil lutntit.
The musket exploded harmlessly In (bo
air; and, ero the astonished Hurler could
recover his footing, Hate hud hurled
him out of the cabin, and, crying "Muti
ny!" locked the cabln-dnnr on the Inside.
The noise brought uut Mrs, Ylcker from
her berth, and the poor little student of
English history ran Into her arm.
"It'a n mutiny, ma'am," said Hates.
"Go back to your cabin and lock the
door. Those bloody vllllans have risen
on us! Maybe It nln't so bad as It
looks; I've got my pistols with me, and
Mr. Frere'll hear tho shot anyway.
Mutiny! On deck there!" he cried nt tlm
full pitch of his voice, and his brow
grew damp with dismay when a mocking
laugh from above was the only response.
Thrusting tho woman and child Into
the state berth, the bewildered pilot
cocked a pistol, nnd snatching a cutlass
from the arm-stand fixed to the butt of
the mast which penetrated the cabin,
he burst open the door with his foot, and
rushed to the companion-ladder. Harker
had retreated to tho deck, and for an
instant he thought the way was clear,
but Lesly and Itussen thrust Mm back
with the muzzle of the loaded muskets.
He struck at Itussen with the cutlass,
missed him. and. seeing the hopelessness
of the nttack. was fain to retreat.
In the meanwhile. Grimes and tho Oliv
er soldier had loosed themselves from
their bonds, and encouraged by the fir
ing which seemed to them a sign that
all was not yet lost, made shift to force
up the fore-hatch. Porter, whose cour
age was nono of the fiercest, and who
bad been for years given over to that
terror of discipline which servitude In
duces, made but n feeble attempt at re
sistance, and forcing the handspike from
him, the sentry, Jones, rushed aft to help
the pilot. As Jones reached the waist,
Cheshire, a cold-blooded, blue-eyed man,
shot him dead. Grimes fell over the
corpse, and Cheshire clubbing the mus
ket coolly battered his head as he lay,
and then seizing the lxxly of the nnfor
tunato Jones in his arms, tossed It Into
the sea. "Porter, you lubber!" he cried,
exhausted with the effort to lift the
body, "come and bear a hand with this
other one!" Porter advanced aghast;
but Just then another occurrence claimed
the villain's attention, and poor Grimes'
life was spared for that time.
Rex, Inwardly raging at this unexpect
ed resistance on the part of the pilot,
flung himself on the skylight, and tore It
up bodily. As he did so. Harker, who
had reloaded his musket, fired down Into
the cabin. The ball passed through tho
stateroom door, and, splintering the
wood, burled Itself close to the golden
curls of poor little Sylvia. It was their
hair-breadth escape which drew from tho
agonized mother that shriek which, peal
ing inrougn tne open stern windows, had
roused the soldiers In the boat.
Rex, who by tho virtue of his dandy
Ism, yet possessed some abhorrence of
useless crime. Imagined that the cry was
one of pain, and that Harker's bullet had
taken deadly effect. "You've killed tho
child, you villain!" ho cried.
"What's the odds?" asked Harker,
snlklly. "She must dlo anyway, sooner
Rex put his head down the skylight,
and called on Hates to surrender; but
Hates only drew his other pistol. "Would
you commit murder?" he nskod, limiting
round with desperation In his glance.
"No, no," cried some of the men, will
ing to blink the death of poor Jones.
"It's no use making things worse than
they are. Rid him come uo nnd we'll
do him no harm."
"Como up, Mr. Hates," says Ret,
"and I give you my word you shan't bo
"Will you set tho major's lady and
child ashore, then?" asked Hates, sturd
ily facing the scowling brows above him.
Rates, hoping against hopo for the re
turn of the boat, endeavored to gnlu
time. "Shut down tho skylight, then,"
said he, with the ghost of nu authority
In his voice, "until I ask the lady."
This, however, John Rex refused to
do. "You can nsk well enough whero
you are," he said.
Hut there was no need for Mr. Hates
to put a question. Tho door of the state
room opened, nnd Mrs. Vlckcrs appeared,
trembling, with Sylvia by her side. "Ac
cept, Mr. Hates," she said, "since It
must bo so. We should gain nothing by
refusing. We are at their mercy God
"Amen to that," says Rules tinder his
breath; and then, aloud, "We agree!"
"Put your pistols on the table and
come up, then," says Rex, covering the
tables with his musket as he spoke.
"Nobody shall hurt you."
Mrs. Vlckers, palo and sick with ter
ror, pased rapidly under the open sky
light, and prepared to ascend. Sylvia
clung to ber mother with one hand, and
with the other pressed close to her llttlo
bosom the "English History."
"Get a shawl, ma'am, or something,"
says Hates, "and a hat for missy."
"Who's to command the brig now?"
asked undaunted Hates, aa they came
"I am," says John Rex; "und with
tbeso bravo fellows I'll tako her round
"What are you going to do with us?"
"Leave you behind. Come, look
nllve there! Lower nwny the Jolly
boat. Mrs. Vlckcrs, go down to your
cabin, and get anything you want. I
am compelled to put you ashore, but I
havo no wish to leave you without
clothes." Hates listened, lu n sort of
dismal admiration, at this courtly con
vict. Ho could not havo spoken llko
that had life depended on It. "Now, my
llttlo ludy," continued Rex, "run down
with your mamma, and don't be fright
