Within half an hour we could see
the twimer clearly, an ancient tramp of

The steamer was close upon us now,

It was an anxious scramble they had

large cabin where warm garments and

ugar were brought by the worthy Irish

man, to whose care we bad been as
signed. Aa far as could be judged. I
had not contracted so much as a cold
in the bead, despite my long extMMure.
When we bad completed our chaugo of
clothes, my cousin beckoned me outside
the cabin, closing the door on our pris
oner. "I have asked lilake to take me to the
captain, for it is right that he should
know the true position of affairs," be
whispored. "While I am gone, you must
sit with Marnac. Kemember, do not let
him out of your sight for a moment."
"Very well," I Mid, and he strode off
down the dark alley of the passageway.
When I re-entered the cabin I found
Marnac mullled to the chin, under the
blankets of a bunk. He gave me one of
his quick, ovll glances, that was un
pleasantly reminiscent of nn aged rat
surprised In an iron gin. I had so great
a horror ami detestation of the man that
his mere presence, was a source of phys
ical discomfort to me; and when, sitting
up amongst his uri. ho commenced to
poster me with questions. I could endure
It no longer. I retired outside the cabin,
seating myself with my back to the door.
I was as woll there, I argued, as in the
Interior, and In n position Infinitely more
satisfactory to myself.
The garments they had lont me wore
thick and warm; tho dose of brandy had
been considerable. I was wonry from
tho toll of a sloepless night Thoso are
my excuses fur tho fact that In tho
courso of the next five mluutes I full
soundly asleep.
It was Graden who woko mo, a very
angry and exasperated Graden who
shook my senses Into with with unnec
essary violence. I started up, protest
ing against his treatmont.
"I thought better of you than this,"
he said, with his hand still fixed In my
"My back was against the door, lie
could not pass without waking me. What
docs It matter?" I grumbled, with very
sign of Irritation,
"1 told you to watch blm, to stay In-
sldn the cabin, and I find you snoring
hero. Nu mun oxouses, please. You
know the ability nf the man. Let us
hope he has not taken advantage of any
chnncos jou gnvc him."
lie opened the door cautiously, peeped
In, nud then Hung It wide with n great
oath. Tho cnblu ws empty!
Yet there wits no doubt as to his uinti
nor of escape. In the middle of tho
flooring there gaped a little hole, with
a heavy square of wood lying beside It.
On examination we found that this en
trance had nlo been birred by h grat
ing, which now swung downwards on Its
hinges, disclosing h wooden ladder, the
foot of whleh was Indistinguishable In
the gloom below.
"lie Is In tlM hold!" I cried. "He Is
hiding somewhere amongst the cargo!
Wo shall neter find him without the help
of tho crew."
Amongst the excellent points In my
cousin's character was that of perfect
self-control. There was no anger In
his voice to remind me of my blunder
when lie stmke again.
"It's not the hold, Cousin Hubert."
he said. "This U the ship's latarette,
where the food is stored. There are usu
ally two entrances, each similar to this.
If he has ec.Htl by the seitwd, It's a
bad business. It will mean he hsa found
n friend, for these gratings should be
secured. Hut It may be that he Is lurk
ing amongst the pork nud biscuits. If
mi, we ought to tlnd him easily enough.
I don't want to bring the crew Into this
affair If I can help It. It will be enough
If the captain knows."
"That's the blackest part of the Inck.
The ship caught it pretty badly last
night; they were right In the thick of
It. I found the ctptaiu on deck super

clearing away the wreckage of one of the
boat, lie was in au a ma sing temper,
and Hlake ad vise. 1 me that If I had a
favor to ask him. I had best let him cool
off a bit. So I dismissed the Irishman
and climbed up to the bridge. I should
think I'd been there abont twenty min
utes watching the work, when I saw a
sharp-looking ' I"!' onX fr,MM lh' "11'

was standing. They had a Bne pow-wow
together, looking up at me from time to
time. It rather puaaled me. and pres
ently I dropped tlown the stairs and
walked over to where they were. The
captain seemed decidedly chilly, and I
Mmn saw by his manner that he was not

We descended tbe ladder, Oration go

the light of which I endeavored to throw
over his shoulder.
It seems a cowardly thing to eouf,
writing as I am In the broad daylight,
with the bees amongst the Hower-beds
singing their song through the open win

our quarry an old man, uty cunsln bad
twice to rale me for the deliberation of
my movements. We (werel about

I were suddenly to catch a dgbt of those

a hysterical schoolgirl.
Hut Marnac was not there. The grato
of the second sulrway was closed ami
locked, and yet he had dlsappa."d.
Someone had heltd him that was plain
enough. We stood disconsolate amongst
the details of the ship's larder.
"Well, he's gone right enough," said
my cousin. "Hallo! what the deuce Is
He took the light from my hand and
stooped to examine something nt his feet.
It was a steel cylinder, about eight feet
lu length; n second lay beside It.
"Ammonia! Ho they run n colt stor

"How do you know that?" I asked,

He sprang forward, caught his foot
In an empty sack, and fell heavily, ex
tinguishing the lamp. As ho did so, I
saw an arm reach down and draw up the
grating through which we had dtisceuded.
A key clicked lu the padlock. Graden
was on his feet In an Instant, and to

There was a pause, filled with much
whispered talk from nlmve. Then the
red head of our friend Tim Hlake came
thrusting Into the picture. He seemed
much distressed nt tho situation,
"Paith; but 'tis not 01 that knows
