A. "few week back Maurtco Frere
would hare laughed at such a sentence;
but he had begun jiow to comprehend
that this escaped convict was not a man
to bo laughed at, and though he detested
Mm for his superiority, he could not but
ml ink that he was superior.
"You can't get more thau on hide oft

tone In his rolce as inough It were
Just possible that such a marrelous being
a Dawes could get a second hide by
virtue of some secret process knowu only
"1 am going to catch other goats at
the pilot station."
"Hut how are you going to get there."
"Float across. Come, there Is no time
for questioning. Go and cut down some
sapling, and let us begin."
The lieutenant master looked at the
convJet 'prisoner tvlth astonishment, and
then gave way to the power of knowl
edge, and did as he was ordered. He
fere sundown that evening, the carcass
of poor Nanny, broken Into various most
uubiitchery fragments, was hanging on
tho nearest tree; and Frere, returning
with as many young saplings aa he couW
drag together, found Uufus Dawes en
gaged In a curious occupation. He had
Wiled the goat. and. harlng cut off iu
head close under the Jaws, and Its legs
at the knee Joint, had extracted the
carcass through a silt, which silt he had
now sewed together with strings. This
proceeding gate him a rough bag. ami
tie was busily cagaged in filllBg this bag
with such coarse grass as he could col
lect. Frero observed, also, that the fat
of the animal was carefully preserved,
nnd the Intestines had been placed In a
pool of water to soak.
The convict, however, declined to give
Information aa to what he Intended to
do. "It's my own notion." he aald. "Let
jne alone. I may make a failure of It."
Frere. on being pressed by Sylvia, af
feeted to know all about the scheme. He
was galled to think that a convict brain
eheuld contain a mystery which be couM
On tho next day, by Ilufus Dawes
directions, Frere cut down some rushes
that grew about a mile from the camp
ing ground, and brought them In on his
back. This took him nearly half a day
tn accomplish. Short ration were be
ginning to tell upon his physical pow
er. The convict, on the other hand,
trained by a woful experience In the
boata to endurance of hardship, was
lowly recovering b'a irlglnal strength.
"What are they for'" asked Frere,
lit he flung tho bundles down.
"To make a float. You are very dull,
Mr. Frere. I am going to awlra over to
the pilot station and catch some of those
goats. I can get aerass on the stuffed
akin, but I roust float them back on the
Frero saw that his companion was
cleaning the intestines of the goat. The
outer membrane having been peeled off,
Itufus Dawes was turning them Inside
out. This he dW by turning up a short
jilece of it. as though it were, a coat
sleeve, and dipping the turned-up cuff
Into a pool 01 water, me weigm 01 me
water, pressing between tho cuff and
the rest of it, bore down a further por
tion; and so, by repeated dippings, the
whole length was turned Inside out. The
Inner membrane having tieeu scraped
owajr, there remained a fine transparent
tube, which was tightly twisted and set
to dry In the sun.
There Is tho catgut for the noose,"
raid Dawes. "I learned that triek at
the settlement. Now, come here."
Frere. following, saw that a fire had
been made between two stones, and that
the kettle was partly sunk In the ground
near It. On npproaehing the kettle, he
fuuod It full of smooth pebbles.
Take out those atones," said Dawes.
Frere obeyed, and saw at the bottom of
the kettle a quantity of sparkling white
powder, and the sides of the vessel
crusted with the same material.
"What tbtttV he asked.
"How did you get it?
"I tilled the kettle with sea water, and
then heating those pebbles red hot In the
fire, dropped them Into It. We could
iiave caught the steam In a cloth and
wrung out fresh water, had wo wished
to do so."
Frere burst out In a sudden, fretful
admiration? "What a fellow you ore,
Dawesl What are you I mean, what
have you been 7"
A triumphant light came Into the oth
er'a face, and for the Instant he seemed
about to reply by some startling revela
tion. Hut the light faded, and he check
ed himself with a gesture of pain.
"I am a convict. Never mind what
J bavo been. X sailor, shipbuilder, prod
igal, vagabond what doea It matter?
It won't alter my fate, will It?"
"If we get safely back," says Frere,
"I'll ask for a free pardon for you. You
"I don't -want favor at your hands.
Let us get to work. Bring up tho rushes
Jiere, and tie them with a fishing lino."
At this instant Sylvia came up. "Good
pftcruoou. Mr. Dawes. Hard at work?
Oh! what's this la the kettle?"
The rolco of tho child acted like a
charm upon Uufus Dawes, He smiled
ff "Salt, wlas. I am going to catch the
oiU' Vita that"
"Catch the goats! How? Put It on
their tails?" she cried merrily.
"Goats are fond of salt, and when I
get over to the pilot station. I shall set
traps for them baited with this salt.
When they come to lick It, I shall hare
a noose of catgut ready to catch them;
do you understand?"
"Hut how will you get across?"
"You will see to-morrow,"
Frere, coming to the pier next morn
ing, aw Dawes strip himself, and piling
his clothes upon the stuffed goatskin,
stretched himself upoh the reed bundles,
and. paddling with his hands, pushed
off from the shore. The clothes floated
high and dry, but the reeds, depressed
by the weight of the body, sunk so that
the head of the convict alone appeared
above water. In this fashion he gained
the middle of the current, and the out
going tide swept him down toward the
mouth of the harbor.
Uufus Dawes, drifting with the cur
rent, had allowed himself to coast along
tho eastern side of the harbor until the
pilot station appeared In view on the op
posite shore. Ity this time It was nearly
7 o'clock. He landed at a sandy cove,
and. drawing up his raft, proceeded to
unpack from among his garments a pleco
of damper. Harlng eaten sparingly, and
dried himself In the sun, he replaced
the remains of his breakfast, and pushed
his floats again Into the water.
Arrived at his destination about raid
day, he set to work to lay his snares.
Tho goats, with whoo skies he hoped
to cover the coracle, were sufficiently
numerous and tame to encourage him to
use every exertion. He carefully exam
ined the tracks of the animals, and found
that they converged to one point tho
track to tho nearest water. With much
labor he cut down bushes, so as to mask
the approach to the water holo on all
aides, save whre these tracks Immedi
ately conjoined. Close to the water, and
at unequal distances along the various
tracka, he scattered the salt he had ob
tained by his rude distillation of sea
water. Between this scattered salt and
tho points where he Judged the animals
would be likely to approach, he set his
traps, and retired to watch the effect
of his labors.
About two hours after he had gone,
the goats came to drink. Thero were
five goats and two kids, and they trotted
calmly along the path to the water. The
watcher soon saw that his precautions
had been In a manner wasted. The lead
ing goat marched gravely Into tho
springe, which, catching him round the
neck, released the bent rod, and sprung
him off bis legs Into the air. He uttered
a comical bleat, and then hung kicking.
The other goats bounded off at this sud
den elevation of their leader, and three
more were entrapped at a little distance.
Uufus Dawes now thought It time to
secure bis prize, though three of the
springes were as yet unsprung. He ran
down to the old goat, knife In hand,
but before he could reach him the bare
ly dried eatgut gave way, and the old
fellow, shaking his head with grotesque
dismay, made off at full speed. The
others, however, were secured and killed.
The kiss of the springe was not a seri
ous one, for three traps remained un
sprung, and before sundown Uufus
Djwes bad caught four more goats. He-
moving with care the catgut that had
done such good servlee, he dragged the
carcasses to the shore, and proceeded
to paek them upon his floats. He dis
covered, .however, that the weight was
too great, and that the water, entering
through the loops of the stitching In the
side, had so soaked the rush grass as
to render the floats no longer buoyant.
IIo was compelled, therefore, to spend
two hours In restufflng the skin with
nich materia as he could find. Some
light and flock-like seaweed, which the
action of the water had swayed after
the fashion of hay bands along the shore,
formed an excellent substitute for grass.
I and having bound his bundle of rushes
lengthwise, with the goatskin as a een
terpleee, he succeeded In forming a sort
ef rude canoe, upon which the carcasses
The tide was now running In, and he
knew It was Imperative that he should
regain the further shore while the cur
rent was in bis faror. He touched the
chilled water and drew back. For an
Instant he determined to wait until the
beams of the morning should Illumine
that beautiful but treacherous sea, and
then the thought of the helpless child,
who was, without doubt, waiting and
watching for blm on the shore, gave new
strength to his wearied frame; and fixing
his eyes on the glow that, hovering above
the dark tree-line, marked her presence,
he pushed the raft before him into the
Paddling and pushing, be gradually
edged It toward the firelight; and at
last, just when his stiffened limbs re
fused to obey the impulse of his will,
and be began to drift onward with the
onward tide, he felt hla feet strike firm
ground. Dragging the carcasses above
high-water mark, he rounded the llttlo
promontory aud made for the fire. He
gained the fire before tho solitary watch
er thero heard bis footsteps, and spread
bis bands to the blaze in alienee.
Frere, starting, cried, "It la you!
nave you succeeded?"
"There are six carcasses down by the
rocks. You can hare meat for breakfast
The child, at the sound of the voico,
cams running down from the hut. "Oh,
Mr. Dawesl I am ao glad! We were
bglnnlng to dsspalr mamma and L"
Daws snatched her from thi ground,
and, bursting Into n Joyous laugh, nwmn
her Into the nlr. "Tell mo," he cried,
holding up tho child with two dripping
arms ubove him, "what you will do for
me If I bring you nnd inniniitrt safe
"(lire you a free pardon," said Hyl
ria; "nnd tutpa shall make you his ser
vant!" Frere bunt out laughing nt
this reply; and Dawes, with a choking
sensation In his throat, put the child
upon tho ground, and walked away.
In tho morning, however, Itufus
Dawes was first at work, nnd made no
allusion to the scene of the previous
erenlng. Hy dint of hard "work they got
the four goats skinned, and the entrails
cleaned ready for twisting, by breakfast
time; and harlng broiled some of the
flesh, made a hearty meal. Mrs. Vlek
ers being no better, Dawes went to see
her, and seemed to have made friends
again with Sylvia, for he came out of
the hut with the child's hand In his.
Frere, who was cutting the meat In long
strips to dry In the sun, saw this, and It
added fresh fuel to the tire of his un
reasonable envy and Jealousy.
Uufus Dawes took two of the straight
est and most taper of some celery-top
pines which Frere had cist on the pro
Tlous day, and Fashed them tightly to
gether, with the butts outward. He thus
produced a spliced slick about twelve
feet long. About two feet from either
end he notched the young tree until he
could bend the extremities upward; and
having so bent them, he secured the
bent porttons In their places by means
of lashing of rawhhle. The spliced trees
now presented the rude outline of the
section of a boat, having the stem, keel
and stern all In one piece. This having
been placed lengthwise between the
stakes, four other poles, notched In two
places, were lashed from stnke to stake,
running crosswlre to the keel, and form
ing the knees. Four saplings wero now
bent from end to end of the upturned
portions of the keel that represented
stem and stern. Two of these four wero
placed abore, as gunwales: two below, as
bottom rails. At each Intersection the
sticks were lashed firmly with fishing
line. Tho whole framework being com
plete, the stakes were drawn out, and
there lay upon the ground the skeleton
of a boat eight feet long by three broad.
Frere, whose hands were blistered and
sore, would fain have rested; but the
conrtet would not hear of It. "I.et us
finish." he said, regardless of his own
fatigue: "the skins will be dry If we

"Well, what's to be done now?"
"Cover the Iioat. There, you can set

then ew the pair at the necks. There
Is plenty of catrut yonder."
"Don't talk to me as If I were a dog!"

cutting at the projecting piece of p
Ilng, made no reply. It Is possible that
he thought the fatigued lieutenant be
neath his notice. Abont an hour before
sundown the bides wero ready, and
Uufus Dawes, having In the meantime
interlaced the ribs of the skeleton with
wattles, stretched the skins over It, with
the hairy side Inward. Along the edges
of this covering he lorM holes at Inter
val, and passing through these holes
thongs of twisted skin, he drew th
whole to the toprall of the boat. One
last precaution remained. Dipping the
pannikin Into the melted tallow, he
plentifully anointed the seams of tho
sewed skins. The boat thus turned
topsy-turvy, looked like a huge walnut
shell covered with red and reeking hide.
or the skull of some Titan who had been
scalped. 'There!" cried Uufus Dawes,
triumphant. 'Twelve honrs In the un

Tho next day was spent In minor prep
arations. The Jerked goat-meat was
pack Ml securelr Into as small a compass
as possible. Wstr bags were Impro
vised out of portions of the Intestines of
the boats. Itufus Dawes, having filled
these with water, ran a wooden skewer
through their mouths, and twisted It
tight, tonrntyuet fashion. He also strip
ped cylindrical pieces of bark, and hav
ing sewed each cylinder at the side, fit
ted to It a bottom of the same material,
and calked tho reams with gum and pine
tree resin. Thus four tolerable bucket
were obtained. One goat skin yet re
mained, and out of this It was determin
ed to make a sail. 'The current was
strong," said Uufus Dawes, "and we
shall not be able to row far with such
oars as we have got. If we get a breeze
It may save our lives," ' It was Impos
sible to "step" a mast In the frail bas
ket strncture, hut this difficulty was over
come by a simple contrivance. From
thwart to thwart two poles were bound,
and the mast, lashed between these pole
with thongs of rawhide, was secured by
shrouds of twisted fishing line running
fore and aft. Sheets of bark were placed
at the bottom of the craft, and made a
safe flooring. It was late In the after
noon of tho fourth day that these prep
arations were completed, and it was de
cided that on the morrow they should
adventuro the Journey. "We will coast
down to the bar," said Uufus Dawes,
"and wait for the slack of the tide. I
can do no more now."
