CHAITKIt XIV. (Continued.)
"Turn my face to It once morel" ho
whispered; and nil they raised htm, he
Inclined hit ear to listen. "It's culm
enough hero, God bless It," ho ssld; "but
I ran hear the waves a-breaklng hard
upon the hart"
A Frere relieved Mr. Vlckers from
the weight of the corpse, Sylvia ran
to her mother. "Oh. mamma, mammal"
ahe cried, "why did God let him die
when we wanted him ao much!"
Before It grow dark, Frere made ahlft
to carry the body to tho shelter of tome
rock at a little distance, and, spread
Ins the Jacket OTer the face, he piled
atone upon It to keep It ateady. The
inarch of event had been ao rapid that
he acarcclr realized that alnee the pre-
vloua evening two of the five human croa
turea left In this wilderness had escaped
from It. Aa he did reallie It. he began
to wonder whoae turn It would be next.
The following day passed gloomily. It
wa hot and aultry, and a dull haie
hung orer the mountain. Frere spent
the morning In acooplng a grave In the
aand, In which to Inter poor Hate.
Practically awake to his own necestltles,
he removed such portion of clothing
from the body as would bo uieful to him,
but hid them under a atone, not liking
to let Mr. Vlckera ee what he had
done. Having completed the gravo by
mld-dny, he placed tho corpt therein,
and rolled as mauy atones as possible to
the sides of the mound. In the after
noon he cast the fishing line from the
point of a rock he had marked the day
before, but caught nothing. Tasslng by
the grate, on hi return, he noticed that
Mrs. Vlckera had placed at the head
of It a rude cross, formed by tying two
piece of atlck together. After aupper
.the usual salt meat and damper he
tried to talk to Sylvia. "Why won't
you be friend with me, missy?" he
"I don't like you," said Sylvia. "Yon
frighten me. You are not kind. I don't
mean that you do cruel things, but you
are Oh, I wUh papa wa here!"
"Wishing won't bring him," say
There! That'a what I mean! Is
that kind? 'Wishing won't bring hlml
Oh, If It only would I"
"I didn't mean It unkindly," says
Frere. "What a strange child you arel"
"There arc persons," says Sylrta,
"who hare no affinity for each other.
I read about It In a book papa had, and
I suppose that'a what It Is. I hare no
affinity for you. I can't help It, can IT"
"Hubblh." Frere returned. "Come
here, and I'll tell you a atory."
Mrs. Vlckera had gone back to her
cave, and the two were- alone by the
tire, near which atood the kettle and the
newly made damper. The child, with
some show of hesitation, came to him
and he caught and placed her on hi
knee. The moon had not yet risen, and
the shadows cast by the flickering fire
reemed weird and monstrous. The wick
ed wish to frighten this helpless crea
ture came to Maurice Krere.
"There was once," said he, "a castle
In an old wood, and In this castle there
lived an ogre, with great goggle eyes."
"You silly manr said Sylvia, etrug
gllng to be free. "You are trying to
"And this ogre lived on the bones of
little girls. One day a little girl was
traveling the wood, and she heard the
ogre coming. 'Haw! hawl Haw! haw!' "
"Mr. Frere, let me down!"
"She waa terribly frightened, and she
ran, and ran, aud ran, until all of a
sudden she saw "
A piercing scream burst from his com
ponlon. "Oh! oh! What's that?" she
cried, and clung to her persecutor.
On the other side of the fire stood the
figure of a man. lie staggered forward,
nnd then, falling on hi knees, stretched
out his bands, aud hoarsely articulated
one word "Food!" It was Hufus
The sound of a human rotca broke the
spell of terror that was on the child,
and as the glow from the fire felt upon
the tattered yellow garments, ahe guess
ed at once the whole story. Not so Mau
rice Frere. lie saw before him a new
danger, a new mouth to share the scanty
provision, and snatching a brand from
the fire, he kept the convict at bay. Hut
Itufui Dawes, glaring rouud with wolfish
tyM, caught sight of the damper restlug
against the Iron kettle, end made a
clutch at It. Frere dashed the brand In
Ms face. "Stand back!" he cried. "We
bare o food to spa re I"
The convict uttered a savage cry, and,
raising the Iron gad, plunged forward
desperately to attack his new enemy;
but, quick a thought, the child glided
past Frere, and snatching the loaf, plac
ed It in the hands of the starving man,
with, "Here, poor prisoner, eat!" and
then, turning to Frere, she cast upon
Mm a glance ao full of horror, Indigna
tion aud surprise that the man blushed
and threw down the brand.
Aa for Hufus Dawes, the audden ap
parition of the golden-hatred girl aeemed
to have transformed him. Allowing the
loaf to Blip through his fingers, bo gared,
with haggard eye, at the retreating fig
ure of tho child, and as It vanUljed Into
the darkness outside the circle of the
firelight, the unhappy man sank his face
upon hU .blackened, horny hands, and
burst Into tears.

'"The coaruo tone of Maurice, Frere
wusod him. "What do you went?" he
Hufua Dawci, raising bis head, con-
templatcd the figure before, him, and rec
ognized It. "la It you?" he aald, slowly.
"What do you mean? Do you know
mo?" asked Frere, drawing back. Hut
the convict did not reply. Ill moment
ary emotion panned away, tho pangs of
hunger returned, and greedily soiling
upon the pleco of damper, he began to
eat In alienee.
"Do you hear, man?" repeated Frere,
at length. "What ore you?"
"An escaped prisoner. You enn give
me up In the morning. I'vo done my
best, and I'm beat."
This sentence struck Frere with dis
may. The man did not know that the
settlement had been abandoned!
"I cannot give you up. There Is no
one but myielf and a woman and child
on the settlement." Rufus Dawes, paus
ing In his eating, stared at him In amaze
ment. "The prisoners have gone away
In the schooner. If you choose to re
main free, you can do so as fsr as I
am concerned. I am as helpless as you
"But how do you come here?"
Frere laughed bitterly. To give ex
ptanatlons to convlcta was foreign to hts
experience, and he did not relish the
taik. In thl case, however, there was
no help for it. "The prisoners mu
tinied and seised the brig."
A terrlblo light broke upon Rufus
Dawes, and be began to understand how
he had again missed his chance. "Who
"That double-dyed villain, John Rex,"
says Frere, giving vent to his passion.
Rufus Dawes burst Into a laugh so
discordant that it made the other shud
der. "We'll starve together, Maurice
Frere," said he: "for while you've a
crust, I'll share It. If I don't get lib
erty, at least I'll have revengol"
The sinister aspect of this famished
savage sitting with his chin on hi rag
ged knees, rocking himself to and fro
In the light of the fire, gave Mr. Mau
rice Frere a now sensation, lie fslt
as might have felt that African hunter
who, returning to his campflre, found a
lion thero. "Wretch !" said he. ahrlnk
Ing from him, "why should you wish to
be revenged on me?"
The convict turned upon him with a
snarl. "Take care what you say! I'll
have no hard words. Wretch! If I am
a wretch who made mo one? If I bate
you and myself and the world, who made
me hate It? I was born free as free as
you are. Why should I be sent to herd
with beasts, and condemned to this slav
ery, worse than death? Tell me that,

"I didn't make the laws," says Frere.
"Why do you attack me?"
"Because you are what I was. You
are free- You can do as you please.
You can love, you can work, you can
think. I can only hate!" He paused as
If astonished at himself, and then con
tinued, with a low laugh: "Fine words
for a convict, h! But never mind. It's
all right, Mr. Frere; we're equal now,
and I aba'n't die an hour sooner than
you, though you are a free man."
Frere began to think that he was deal
ing with another madman. "Die! There'a
no need to talk of dying." he aald, as
soothingly aa It was possible for him to
say It. "Time enough for that by and
"There spoke the free man. We con
victs have an advantage over you gentle
men. You are afraid of death; we pray
for It. It Is the best thing that can
happen to us Die! They were go-
lug to hang me once. I wish they had."
There was such a depth ef agony In
this terrible utterance that Maurice
Frere was appalled at It. "There, go
and sleep, my man," he said. "You are
knocked up. We'll talk In the morning."
"Held on a bit!" cries Rufus Dawes,
with a coarseness of manner altogether
foreign to that be had Just assumed.
"Who's with ye?"
"The wife and daughter of the com
fandant," replied Frere, half afraid to
refuse an answer to a question so fierce
"Poor soulsr said the convict, "I pity
them." And then he stretched himself,
like a dog, before the blaze and weut to
aleep Instantly. When morning dawned
Frere awoke htm.
Rufus Dawes glanced around him stu
pidly, and then remembering what bad
happened, with a great effsrt he stag
gered to his feet. "I thought they'd got
me," ho ssld; "but It's the other way,
I see. Come, let's have breakfast, Mr.
Frere. I'm hungry."
"You must wait," aald Frere. "Do
you think there la no one here but your
self?" The convict, stretching out his wast
ed arms, looked down upon them with
the uncertain gaze of a drunken man. "I
am weak now," he said. "You have the
best of me;" and then he aunk suddenly
down upon the ground, exhausted. "Giro
me drink!" he moaned, feebly motioning
with his hand.
Frere got him water In the pannikin,
and having drunk It, lie smiled, and lay
down to sleep again. Mrs. Vlckera and
Sylvia coming out while be still slept,
recognized him aa the desperado of tho

Frere, looking down at the notorious
rutfian with curiosity. "He's aa near
dead as can be," ,. .
Sylvia looked up at him with her clear
child's glance. "We mustn't lot blni
die," aald she. "That would, be mur

he could not express, and which he had
never owned before, Tho dislike the

and yot he took delight In tormenting

"He U better." said Mrs. Vlckers, dis
daining to refer to the scene of the
morning. "Sit down and have something
to eat, Mr. Frere."
"Are you better?" asked Frere, ab
ruptly. To his surprise, the convict answered
quite civilly, "I shall be strong again In
a day or two, and then I can help you,
Within a week from the night on
which he had seen tho.smoke of Frciv'e
fire, the convict had recovered his
strength, and had become au Importaut
personage. He was skilled In alt the
mysteries of the prison shed. He knew
how to sustain life on as little food as
possible. He could fell trevs without an
ax, bake bread without au oven, build
a weatherproof hut without bricks or
mortar. From the patient he became
the adviser; and from the adviser, the
As the time wore on. and the scanty
stock of provision decreased, he found
that his authority grew more and more
powerful Did a question arise as to the
qualities of a strange plant. It was Rufus
Dawes who could pronounce upon It.
Were fish to be caught. It was Rufus
Dawes who caught them. Did Mrs.
Vlckers complain of the Instability of her
brush wood hut. It was Rufus Dawes
who worked a wicker shield, and, plas
tering It with clay, produced a wall that
defied the keenest wind. He made cups
out of plue knots, and plate out of bark
strips. He worked harder than any
three men. Nothing daunted him, noth
ing discouraged him. When Mrs. Vlck
ers fell sick, from anxiety, and Inapdl

gathered fresh leaves for her couch, who
cheered her by hopeful words, who vol
untarily gave up half his own allowance
of meat that ahe might grow the strong

called him "Mr." Dawes.

began to run short. Dawes talked of

One day Sylvia was sitting In the sun
reading the "English History," which,
by the accident of fright, she had
brought with her on the night of the
mutiny. "Mr. Frere," ssld she, sud
denly, "what Is an alchemist?"
"A man who make gold," was Frere's
not very accurate definition.
"Did the ancient Britons know It?"
"No; not so old as that."
Sylvia suddenly gave a little scream.
The remembrance of the evening when
she read about the ancient Britons to
poor Bates came vividly Into her mind,
and though she had since re-read the
passage that had than attracted her at
tention a hundred tlme-i, It had never
before presented Itself to her In Its full
significance. Hurriedly turning the
well-thumbed leaves, ahe read aloud the
passage which had provoked remark:
"The ancient Britons were little bet
ter than barbarians. They painted their
bodies with woad, and, seated In their
light coracles of skin stretched upon
slender wooden frames, roust havo pre
sented a wild and savage appearance."
"A coracle! That's a boat! Can't we
make a coracle, Mr. Dawes?"
The convict knitted his brow gloom
ily. "Come, Dawes!" cried Frere, forget
ting bis enmity for an Instant, in the
flash of new hope, "can't you suggest
Rufus Dawes, thus appealed to a the
acknowledged head of the little society,
felt a pleasant thrill of self-satisfaction.
"I don't know," he said; "I must think
of It. It looks easy, and yet'" He
paused as something In the water caught
his eye. It was a mass of bladdery sea
weed that the returning tide was waft

which would have paed unnoticed at
any other time, suggested to Rufus
Dawes a new Idea. "Yes," he added,
slowly, with a change of touc, "It may
be done, I think I nee my way. How
far do you think It Is across the bay?"
bo asked Frere.
"About four miles."
The convict sighed. ''Too far to iwlm
now, though I might have doue It ouco.
But .this tort of life weakens a man.
It must be doue, after all."
"What aro you going to do?" asked
"To kill the goat." -
