As "(lie only bit of documentary

from the steamship company seemed
to Impel his attention. He read It

"The Colonla will sail at one o'clock
In tho morning, October 7."
October 71 Tliero was a feeling of
depression at the pit of his stomach.
It was not due to seasickness. The
heartbreaking realization of his situa
tion had come ut last. With the Olnnt
klllers fighting for the victory that
meant everything to players, manager,
and club owners, the team's second
baseman, regarded by many as "the

announced : "I'm going to see the enp

"On the bridge, sir."
"Tnko me to him!" nis inflection
Once In n championship gnmo Win
Shute had worked the pitcher for n
free pass In first, had stolen second
nnd then third, nnd when pitcher wns
winding up hnd raced home, hooking
his leg over the pinto and eluding tho
catcher who tried to put tho ball on
him. This Is the only explanation
thnt can be offered why nnd how "Mr.
S. W. James" succeeded In getting to
tho captain of the bridge. Tho gov-crnor-genernl
of the ship wns so sur
prised that he didn't nsk the deter-
mlnoddookmg young man how be hnd
managed It. "Captain, my name Is
Shute mostly called Win Shute.'
The captain nodded, but without n
glimmer of understanding.
"You've probably heard of the world
series championship of tho big
"Yes games to decide the best team
In tho world." explained Win eagerly.
"What of It?" was the captain's re
joinder. "This," said Shute. pausing for em
phasis: "I'm tho second baseman,
heavy hitter, and lending baso runner
on one of the teams tho Giant-killers,

"What of that?" varies the captain.
His tone wns not unkind, but he show
ed n wretched lack of Interest.
"First game's today In two hours."
"I take It you nre not going to play."
There wns amusement In tho captain's

eyes to the sen.
"Captain, you don't appreciate what
this menns not to me alone, but to
our club nnd to the fans of our city.
Why, It's the biggest event of tho year.
I got to be there."
There wns another scrutinizing look
from the matter of tho vessel, who
"How can I get you to stop the
The captain smiled. "If you prcs
ed for an nnswer. I should have to
say that you couldn't get me to stop
"For whom would you stop her?"
"The officers of the line," replied
the cnptnln, smiling nmlably.
"Very well, then." said Win quietly.
"you'll get orders from the Hambard
line to 'stop her. Seo you later, cap
tain." The stewnrd, in tho expectant atti
tude of a curious person anticipating
trouble, wns surprised when "Mr.
James," wlio wanted to bo railed Mr.
Shute, returned from his encounter
with flic captain In perfect composure,
though a triflo hurried. Ho plucked
the steward by the nnu, nnd again
"Now hike me to the wireless op
erator and whnfs his nnmo?"
".Mr. Munscl Jerrold Munscl. You

"Mansel? Not Jed Manuel, the man

The qunrters of the wireless opera

ever, Tho "Hero of the Regent" wus
not at his post of duty.
It wns uftur much searching thnt
they cuino upon thu operator. Jed
Mansel wus seated In an Inconspicu
ous corner of the library, engaged In
what teemed to be an Intlmntu conver
sation ' with an uncommonly pretty
girl. After pointing him out, the
steward made u busty retreat. Win
Shute didn't lose a moment's time.
"I'nrdon mo for butting In liut nre
you the wireless operator of the ship?"
Mantel scowled 'and nodded Impa
tiently, "J want to send n message, plensp."
"I'll he In my room on tho boat deck
In about fifteen minutes" nd Jed
Mansel turned' Yo tt'io prolfy gTrT.
"Fifteen minutes won't do," snld
Shuto positively. "I must get It right
oft It's very Important."
Mnnsel wns Inclined to put up nn
argument, but n certain look In tho eye
of James Wlnton Shuto that or some
thing else caused him to think better
"AA S. O. S. from duty, Miss Riley.
May I hopo to seo you nfter lunch
eon?" "You may hopo," sho replied half
Jestingly, nnd turned to select n book.
Jed Mnnsel laid tho course, hut Win
Shuto set tho pace.
This wns tho wireless message
which was given to the operator of the
steamship Colonla to transmit to the
nearest station In tho United Stales:
"Trls Fonl, Philadelphia:
"Was probably drugged last ntght
nnd carried aboard steamship Colonla,

"How long will It tnko to get thnt
off?" Inquired Win.
"Can't sny no telling how long It'll
take to raise 'em."
"I'll wait." said Shute.
It was an hour before tho wireless
operator reported that tho mcMige
had been transmitted to the shore. He
then announced that hoiwus going to
"But how about tho reply? Who'll
be hero to receive It?"
"It'll be two hours nt least before

An hour Inter Jed Mansel returned
nnd found tho persistent passenger
waiting nt his cabin door. Slowly n
"Can't you rolso cm?" nsked Win
, "Hero comes something," snld the
operator encouragingly. After much
clicking, Mansel shook his head.
"Sorry, but It's not for you."
Ho was an endlessly long time re
ceiving nnd transcribing tho message.
Then be summoned n deck steward
and told him to find Miss Rtlcy mid
glvo her the Mnrconlgram.
"Repent my message," ordered

yellow-backed bill. ,

"For the captain?" Win's tone wns
eager. That's the stuff I" He was
thinking of orders from tho olllccn
of the line.
The operator transcribed tho mes
sage, put It In nn envelope, nnd went
off to deliver It himself. When he
camo back lie confided the Informa
tion: "I'm going to send a message
from the cnptnln about you." Thnt
was all, but It raised the wavering
spirits of the young man who would
not leave tho upper deck.
There was another tedious delay.
Finally, along about five o'clock, there
were the auditory evidences of the
approach of n winged message. Then
further delay while the wireless ojm
erator ployed tils Important part In
the space-conquering trick.
"Sorry, but It's not for you. For

"Might be Just as good." suld Win.
The operator didn't reply. He went
