Motionless, we listened, and caught the
regular breathing of a sleeping iimii, then
dlMlrrulshed that of another, onit finally
hears some one turn and grunt. In wiw
Inexplicable way, these men had happened
to camp Just above the spot chosen by
Duponceau to hide hia chest.
I senrce dn red turn and crawl away
front fear of waking the sleeper, and o
lay still, wondering If by any chance they
could hare already found the treasure, or
If there might yet be nn opportunity for
ns to remove It. Suddetily I felt Kodney
rrlp my arm. "Listen," he breathed.
Oft In the distance, clear nud long, rose
the osprey call. Duponceau was In some
, We wriggled away from the hemlock,
crawled back through the woods, and
tood erect only when we reached the
edge. There we swept the beach and
what we could see of the Ship for stgna
of men, but the shore was still empty
a the desert.
"Shall we run for It?" I asktd.
"No." said Kodney; "If there are any
men there, they're between us and the
boat, or on the boat; we'd best keep close
to the Cliff until we get our bearings."
The adtrlce was good; like Indians we
made the fringe of the woods, keeping In
ahadow. When we were forced to leave
this shelter we skirted the cliff, ready to
crouch bark at a call or to rush forward.
As we neared the shadow of the head
land we saw figure climb over the rooks
of the little Inland sea and head up the
beach four men, sllhouttcd black against
the white sand, and not one of them as
tall as Duponceau.
They haven't cot him." I whispered;
"at least, be Is not with them."
"That's queer." said Rodney. "I haven't
heard a hot flrrd. They must have
boarded the Ship."
We crowed the causeway, running light
t ly, and climbed on board. The deck was
ax empty a tbe beach had been when
we tlrst crossed It. 1 rushed below anil
' poked in all the bunks, but not n trace of
Duponceatt vn to be found. Itodney and
I stood In the bow and peered across the
rock. We could see nothing save the
oods and the sky.
"Well." said Isllp at last, "that takes
the cake. He's vamosed, vanished, cleared
out, and I dire any we'll never wo hide
or hair of Mm again. This thing's get
ting positively spooky, Selden. Are you
sure that the man was flesh and blood V"
"I certainly thought so." 1 answered.
"Hut he ca'me' In the middle of the night,
and he' gone at the same time. Strange I
.Where on earth could he go?"
"Search me," said Itodney. "I thought

wered, looking blankly at him.
Isllp broke into a Itugh such an In
fectlou' laugh that I couldn't help Joining
him. "I dare say we're different In most
ways. Selden." he said, "but we're alike
In one. Well, here's how!" and he held
out bU band to me.
We shook bands, half seriously, half In
JJer, aud I took bark all the unkind
things I had ever thought about htm.
We turned and went down the deck on
tbe outer side of the mast. I heard Itod
ney exclaim and saw him stop and look
lit the rail where his band rested. A
email rold chain was fastened to the edge.
He peered over the side, and then, to my
utter amazement, began to throw off his

came tbe sprey'a cry. clear, quavering to
a minor cadence. (slip slipped over the

I pulled nn the chain and up came s
bundle of clothes wrapped In Duponceau'
cloak. Then 1 understood, and followed
Never have I known such a swim as
that. In the mystery of starlight, through
a sea that seemed made of silver. We
found Duponceau by his cry and followed
Mm, resting now and then to flout on the
liver surface, and again racing hand over
?iand out through the mystery. We were
ftxo longer men, but free sea creatures, in
our own element, undismayed.
We swam in a great circle, nnd at last
'Duponceau led u back to the Hhlp. Day
was breaking far out, beyond the Shifting
Shoal. "I saw them coming," he salt),
"and so I buns my clothes from tbe aide
nnd took to tbe naves. They found noth

We told him our experience In search
ing for the chest, and he showed a great
jdfal of perturbation, but finally came to
Jthe wise conclusion that wo could do notb
.Ing In regard to It then.
It was my turn below, and I fell asleep,
In a glorious glow froiA the swltu, Just as
i-the sky was shading pink.
J When I awoke I found Kodney seated
fn the cabin table,
"Morning. Selden I" he exclaimed. "Ky
the vny, who Is Monsieur Duponceau?"
I shook my head. "I gave that ques
tion us some time ago. How about break
fast?" "1 was thinking of that myself," Mid
Uodncy. "I don't mind Ivlug a hero, but
I prefer to play the part on a full stom
ach." "I'll signal Chnrlee." I went up on
deck, and found that the sun wax high
up, and shining on a glorious summer
world, I fastened a napkin to the broken
stump of the mast.
Fifteen minutes later we saw my canoe
steal cautiously about the (Mint of the
cliff bejoud my house aud poke Its nose
in the direction of the Ship. Charles
brought the tiny craft alongside of us.
"They're wntrhtng the house closely,
Mr. Felix." he said. "It was all I could

that the Win were patrolled by a num

After breakfast we passed the time as
best wis could, but the morning went
slowly, aud we were glad when lunch was
ready. This was a meagTe meal, made
up of the scrap of the provisions Ilar
bara had brought us. I told Charles that
I preferred to have him stay with us, as
there was no telling when we should

Duponceau and Islip had slept little the
night before, and shortly after lunch they
took up their hunks to nap. 1 was on
guard on the forward deck when I beard
a voice call, "Ship ahopl" and looked up
to see Itarbant on the cliff.
I called to Charles to take my place
for a few moments and sallied forth to
shore. Ilarbara Joined me nt tbe foot
of the headland.
"Welir she asked eagerly.
I told her the adventures of the pre
vious ntgbt, nnd when I came to the ear
ly morning swim her eyes tlinced as she
clapped her hands with delight. "Ob, I
wish I bad been out there with )oul" she
cried. "I've always wanted to try a awlm
in the dark."
"It's Just as well you weren't," I an
She looked somewhat longingly out to
-sea. "What a beautiful afternoon! And
ure the rest of tbe crew working?"
"Tbe rest of the crew are sleeping.
They had too much coffee for dinner last
night, and It kept them awakn."
"And wlutt Is Charles doing?"
1'pulnted to the deck. "lie's on guard.
That' the reason I'm here."
"Oh, that's It. Is It? I thought you
came to see me."
"And so I did. Suppose we sit here at
the foot of tbe cliff, where we can look
out to sea and can't be seeu. There' a
little nook I know of."
I found the place that I sought n se
cret crevice In the rock and there we
at and watched the tide do It best to
reach us as It bounded landward. The
afternoon drifted past, and we, borne on
Its tranquillity, wrre now talk-ttlve, now
silent. Ilarbara rolled her sUcrc above
her elbows, and played with the water In
a little ool beside our Mge of rocks.
Her dreaming eyes brooded over the
ccean. I watched her, tried to turn my
eyes seaward, felt the Irresistible call, ami
came back to watching her. Tie time
hart come when I couM think only the
Tbe sun was low, Ilarbara was huts
m(ng a Utile French song. The whole
world was adornble.
"Ilarliaro. I love you I"
Tim words wero nut, spoken without
volition, nil of themselves.
She looked iip; Iit singing stopped,
nnd the deep blush-rose erept Into her
face, while her eye shrank.
"Harbnrn, I love you. I have loved you
since I first found you on the Ship, and
I shall go on loving you until I die. I
can't hlp It; It's not only conscious. It's
parlly unconscious; It's Just you railing
to me. Ilarbara dear, you are all my

of that sweet, that Infinitely sweet fitco

the wave, and I waltid spellbound for

added, her voice low; "nnd what do you

"Kverytblng. All I Could ever know

and that Is probably why you are now In

with me." Tbe last words were Just a
whisper. She raised her eye to mine for
a fleeting second, then dropped her lashes.
"lUHeve me. Ilarbara, It's cot that; It's
the truth the truest thing In the world.
She plajed with the water In the pool
nt her side.

She smiled. "Felix of Alastnlr;" then
she turned up the path,
I went back to the Shtp mighty with
rceolvcs; I thirsted for snitt deeds 'o do.
When I came on Iward I found pl.ttu for
such deeds brewing.
Duponceau hail been Proodlnj all tny
over the possibility of losing tbe contents
of his precious chest, and after mm
argument, Kodney and h lit 1 decided in
ms.ke the effort to move It to the Ship
that ntgbt, 1 pointed out the fact that
In nil probability tbe enemv knew nothing
whateter of !he chest' position, aud haJ
simply happened to camp In th neighbor
hood of that particular ltmlock : but Du
ponceau' feo-s were aroused, and It was
evident thtt he would be satisfied with
nothing short of having the strong-box
tinder his ire.
"What the deuce do yotl suppose tho
paers are, that he should be so fearful
about them?" I asked Kodney when we
He shrugged his shoulders. "Heaven
knows! 'Pie man Isn't craiy, for I've
been studying hint closely all day, anil

Fortunately the night was cloudy, and
alout eleven we were ready to start. I
had never felt so completely the despera
do lefore. We were all three armed with
revolvers. I carried a coll of rope wound
about my waist, and Kodney a dark lan
tern which Charles had found In the
cottage. Duponcrnii was the least excit
ed. He took command of our expedition
with the assurance of a born leader, and,
In fact. It was only his overweening con
fidence that gave the scheme the least
pros;ect of success.
Just before we left the Ship Charles
Joined ti with two spades, and so, a party
of four, we stole over the beach and Into
the dune. Duponceau led us to the pine,
thence we crawled Inward, lying silent
after each cracking twig, straining our
eye and ear for news. When w came
to the hemlock we lay four abreast ami
so ped nwr at the tent that loomed
vaguely white ahead. The only sound
was a loud and resonant snore.
Duponceau crawled forward on one side
of the lent, and then lieckoncd to m to
do tbe same on the opposite side. When
I had wriggled forward some ten fret I
could look In nt the tent, the side of
which were open to the summer hreeies.
One man lay within, sleeping. It was
rlrar that the enemy bad not exjiecteil
Duponceau stole to hi feet, I did like
wise. He entered the tent from one side,
nnd I from the other. With a swift
movement he was over the sleeping man,
nnd had pinned him to the bed. while he
thrust o handkerchief Into hi mouth.
The sleeper irtarted. struggled, moaned,
and lay still; I hnd held my revolver In
his fneo. In n twinkling we had -him
bound nnd gagged, rolled from his Intl of
lHighs, and lld nt n little distance.
While we did thl Isllp nnd Chnrlea nit
tbe guide-ropes, nnd the lioue of our
enemies fell, collapsing like n great white,
linlloon when the gas escapes. We clear
ed It away, and the place where the chest
wn hidden lay Mom tis.
Then followed ft strange rene for those
titihlstnrlc pines of Alairtalr. With ears
keen for the slightest alarm, nuponrmii
and I dug, Kodney holding his black Inn
tern so n to aid us, Charles keeping
watch. A foot down nnd my spade struck
wood. In five minutes) the chest was
uncovered. Carefully we rnlsed It and
plnced It on the ground, A his band
touched the unbroken look I thought that
Dupoiiceau gave a Utile sigh of relief.
