A Pklkk, and is a graphic, natural narration

Will Levington Comfort, the author, is well
known for his superior literary talent, and in the present
instance he has selected a theme admitting of intense de
1 neation. No story of recent years has covered a theme
more interesting than that of the eruption of Mont Pelee.
The serial has ah the coloring and charm of the beautiful
surroundings of Saint Pierre, and there are touches of
peifection in the descriptions of scenery and incidents.
Peter Constable and Hayden Breen, young Americans, visit
Saint Pierre just before the Pelec volcano scattered death
and destruct on over the ill-fated island. The hero of the
story, Constable, saves the life of the beautiful Lara Stans
bury at the time of the eruption, and the scenes on that
occasion are thrillingly described.
Ail through the story are incidents of the most fascin
ating character. They include a touching love romance of
Hayden and the girl to whom he is devoted, and the horror
and fate that reigned at the moment when the island was
engulfed in doom and disaster. This brilliant and mas
terly narrative of the crash at Martinique with a man
and woman standing clear against the sequence of events
rivals "The Last Da)s of Pompeii" in pictorial and dra
matic power. The story should have a very cordial recep
tion, it will intere:t all readers, oung and old, and may be
classed among the very best tcrials of its class that have
been written in recent years.
IVter Constable tat forward on the
main deck of hW own yacht, the Madame
de Stael, which had Just been hitched to
the bottom of Saint Pierre' harbor. His
alnrle guest for the cruise. Hayden Ilreen,
was back In the cabin, with a book and a
lone, thin glass. Three weeks prevhrnaly,
early la April, Constable bad met Ilreen
for I be flrst time. Ami of that meeting

It cane about some ilxtjr boon before
the Madame cleared from New York har
bor, a tx J a queer ulght for both men.
Constable had been pacing the deck akme,
Vbe he beard a soft atep below on the
Ilreoklyu pW. lie bent over the railing,
and pereeived that a atranger waa about

Constable called sharply. Tlie 6guTt

jwung upward. The two parleyed tor a

to Constable Mai that of a gentleman.

the owner of the MaiUme fared an Indl

and we whose manner betrajred no Ilaw.
TTt face waa pale, Imposing; a reckless
fast, but not devastated though the eyes,
perhaps, bad a look of having seen too

about book, picture, dollar, the tropica,
and iwlofcle. At the etui. Constable waa

llreen glanced at him whimsically. "I
wonder If I really dl drop off the dock,
and tbtn if the antral 4anc," he mused.
"This la the edge of Ilrooklyn, and I
, am serious," Constable said.
'Till la the edge of Ilrooklyn, and I
am aaloniahed,'' Ilreen replied.

"I'll have a berth made up for you

Ilreen appeared content, and accepted
the various offices from his boat with a
fine, half-humorous appreciation. Con
stable found, In their early Intercourse,
not the slightest cause to regret his Im
pulsive Invitation. That the other did
not harry him with rcferencca to his kind
ness was, to Constable's way of thinking,
th severest test of t thoroughbred. Ureen
did not leave the ship, and seldom the
cabin, during the entire period of prepara
tion, lie aat In a reclining chair ami
read the essayists, mildly spirited. What
ever had been hi attitude before, be ac
cepted what life offered him now In calm
neax. He still had the Jaded human's
laat resource, when this unexpected but
pleasant portion of life waa at an end.
Such seemed to be the philosophy of this
creature who bad passed the death sen
tence upon himself.
Constable slept aboard the last nlsht
before tailing, and waa at breakfast with
his guest about eight In the morning,
when a servant entered the saloon to an
nounce that a gentleman on the pier
wanted to speak with "Mr. Constable's
friend." Ilreen set bis toffee cup down
slowly, and hU eyes met hi liost's.
"Mr. Constable," In- said, "you have
noted, no doubt, that I have remained
under cover rather elosely since our In
teresting meeting. There Is no one In
New York whom I enre to see, but the
twrson out yonder feels differently to
ward me. In fact, be I wry much ab
sorbed In my movements. I happen) to
step to the railing a few minutes More
breakfast, and caught hla eye. The truth
is, If I see him now, be will persuade
me to go with bint, and I would much
rather accompany you,"
"What would you advise';" Constable
"With jour interests at heart, I ean
only advise jou to bid me good-by and
allow we to thank you for many genulue
courtesies. Perhaps )ou remember that
I offered to outline my past, aud you de
terred me for the time lieing."
"I want i to go, of course. What Is
the simplest way to manage this''
"I low soon do you sail'"
Constable went to the speaking tube
and called Captajn XvgJey. A moment
later he turned to Ilreen with the In
formation that the Madame was Just
ready to clear, and would be put off aa
quietly and quickly as possible, 'ilie ser

There was a passage of 11 Is from the
bridge to the engine room, and the Mad
ame came to life. Constable climbed to
the bridge. The stranger Mow on the
pier was in a furious state of mind, and
was trying to force his way aboard. It
was plain that Ilreen was badly wanted.
and equally plelu to Constable that he
was running Into the danger of entang
ling himself In the meshes of the law;
but he was stoutly disinclined to give up
an admirable companion for the voyage.
The progress of .clearing went on quick
ly. The Madame' prow was turned out
into the harbor, and the signal given to
free the aft cable.
At this point the Insistent stranger
raised his voice and struggled with tho
dockman to prevent him from slipping the
rope. Constable stepped to the railing of
the bridge and Invoked the assistance of
two men on the pier bead.
Take that fellow in hand," he ordered
"He seems to be InUi-Ing under n Oelu
