Signs multiplied. When Charles nnd
I returned to the house we found mudde
footprints staining the dining-room floor
auxl tracked acroxa the kitchen. No In
truders Were to be seen, nor other evi
dence of their visit, but the mere fact
that the sanctity of my home hitherto
always left open to the winds had been
Invaded, angered me. I hade. Charles see
that the house was securely looked here
after whenever ha left It In my absencw.
Orer the mantel In my den hunc two
muskets, ont-of-date but still capable of
wing boles In the- atmosphere. My little
armory held a shotgun, for use In the
warnbrs and two revolvers, whoso only
use heretofore had beon for tnrget prac
tice. 1 took them from the drawer and
looked them orer: they were ready for
work when needed.
I eat on the porch, and considered the
sutnatlon. Something was about to hap
Jten, something I could not tell what
that centered around tbl man who had
mysteriously taken posxclon of the
Ship and pro(Med to offer combat on
the Mind. What he was or who he w t
could not guem: speculation In these lines
brought me lmmed.a;ely Into blind al
ley; but there waa no doubt that In sit
uation and character he wns certainly
the direct descendant of a moro adven
turous ape. I waa unmistakably drawn
to him. 1 could nee him as be itood on
the beach, buffeted by the storm, gaxlng
t the men who were millin awar. and
cut he had stepped from the hatchway, hat
in natxj. oowing to Ilarbara Graham with
the chlralrotift manner of a caraller, and
tain a he sat across the table from roe.
Ills lender handa rrady to telle upon the
pistols, hbi eyes, full of amueinent and
audacity, looking straight into mine.
There waa no doubt about It, the Ship
belonged to him by right of Inheritance,
and hia arrlral had bronght me atrange
tiding. I thought orer the matter a long
time before I went to bed.
Early the next morning I took mr din
la the aea, and waa returning, clad In a
lath-robe, when I caajht light of a man
peering at me from the pine, f wared

The man grinned. "Not exactly. Well,

At breukfsst I again cautioned Charles
to remember that he knew nothing.
I could do no work In my present state
of mind, ro I slung my flttd-gUsses orer
tny riioulder and went to call on Dupon
ceau. He was sitting at tha cabin table,
breakfasting on (be remains of our last
night's supper. My heart smote me,
"Why didn't you let me know? I could
bare brought you breakfast."
"It matters little: yesterday I obtained
eome food from a farmer, but that Is loo
dangerous. He smiled. "I'm quite used
to doing with little."
I sat down while he finished breakfast.
After that we walked the short Jenglh of
the cabin, Duponceau asking, me a great
many questions about the coast and the
country Inland. I told blm what I could,
and be seemed satisfied. Then 1 decided
to take my eawl and palms and go up on

stood, and went towards her.
She was half lying, half sitting, In the
eoft Mtid, some of which she had moulded
Into n cushion for' her luck, and a book

reading, Rho waa gating at the sea.
"What do you think of our pirate!"
She, started, looked round at me, aat

"I was Just thinking of him. I waa
winking that I like him tremendously."
"Naturally. He rescued vou from

very disagreeable fellow."
'ltti," she agreed, without looking at
me; "and a girl can never forset a debt
of gratitude for that sort of thing."
"I must apologise." I said, "for my
rudeness. Of course It was no business

It happens that was Just the ration why

"You did? WhyJ"

"Oh, tell me all about It!" she hegged.
"I knowvery little. He's an adventur

and he's going to live In the Ship. More
over, it seems reasonably certain that
there's going to be trouble."

I found that I only needed this chance
to avow myself opeuly.

too dangerous," I added.
She turned to face the ocean again.
"I should like to do something to help
him." she said, "because I like him. Sup
pose we go to see him now."
I picked up my easel and pilots on the
cliff, and we. boarded the Ship. .
At tbe root of the cabin stairs Ilarbara

"Against whom? I haven't seen an

"You will see." be answered. "They

There was a grim little smile about his
III now. "I cannot tell; perhaps a doz

"I think you ytrj resolute," the said
soberly; "quite the bravest man I bare
Unquestionably there was no logic In
this remark, and jet I couldn't but own
that I agreed with Ilarbara.

I had left. 'To think," she said, "that
Captain KIdd should come to life again!
Hut where Is the hurled treasure?"
I thought of the chest I had seen car
ried Into the woods on tbe night of the
storm, but said nothing. When I glanced
at Duponceau he was smiling at Bar
bara. 'This Is a very desperate matter
for me," b said, "but even tho most des
perate affairs are brightened by a wom
an, ion are my good angel, mademoi
selle." He said It In such a way that Ilarbara
could not but be pleased,
"Thank you, monsieur; and what plans
have you made for defense?"
Duponceau outlined his plans. First
of all he would stay well hidden . from
sight; then if bis enemies should find
him, tliere were three point ot attack:
from the open eea, from the cliff above
the causa way, and from tbe beach be
yond tbe protecting circle of rocks. Wo
studied each In turn, nnd planned bow
three men, well armed, could hold tho
Ship against a score. "I should like mora
ammunition than I hnve," nuponeeau con '

"Let's get It now," cried Ilarbara, "an

wo started forth ngnln, she with the pro
visions, 1 with a shotgun and two revol

came out of the plnea nnd wnlked dowc
to meet us,
"Where are you going with thosi
guns?" one of them, a surly faced chap
"What business Is that of yours?" 1
He changed his tactics. "We're look

landed somewhere on this beach it night

The men were clearly surprised. Thej
were more so whon they saw the glr!
calmly sit down on the sand, motion me t(

revolvers. Shortly after, they withdrew,
whispering to each other.
In order to disarm suspicion, we sat
.there some time, and I built mlnlatun
sand fortifications In order to teach liar
