wiih now worth nothing. NevertbelcHfl,
nn ho hnd no inoro funds, ho wrote it
nolo to III broker to Unit effect and
roiiHcntliiK to tlm nnlo of IiIh necurlty.
TIiIh ho did with n henvy heart Mure tio
coiiHlderud It equivalent to tho breaking
of IiIh engagement.
Ho wiih nettling the nolo when n men
Heiiger elilen-d with n eommunlciitlon
from the enMiler of the bank where ho
kept IiIh fuiidH. He xlghed iih he toio
off tho envelope, Knowing that IiIh nc
count wiih overdrawn nnd expecting a
notification to that effect. To IiIh tiHton
iHliment the note read iih followH:

"Who ptnctd 0,000 to my credit?"
"Hold tho wire."
In n few mluutcfl came the reply,
"The check wnH pnynble to Martin
Conelmid. who made It paynblo to
"Von have mndo n mistake. I don't
Know hucIi n num. Who Ih be?"
There wiih another request to bold

Hfiue one miiKt have blundered. The
money could not possibly como from
uny friend, for there wnn no one among
tin wo Uuotcd to Trevor wlwj could or
would risk nucIi mi amount for friend
ship. Nevertheless hIiicc he had hojior
hbly notified the bank of the probable
error, be had done all that could bo ex
pected of him nml, with plenty of
money to IiIh credit, did not projioric to
let n fortune Blip through IiIh llngcrn.
He tore up the note ho had written to
his broker nnd wrote another, Inclosing
n check for W.00O. He stayed In hid I
ofllce till ! o'clock, expecting 'to get n I
notice from the broker thnt the bnuU I'
bad after nil refused payment, hut no '
notice came, nor did nny ever come.
Later he wiih obliged to send another j
cheek for margliiH for $1,000, which '
wan a bo paid. When tho market j
turned, Trevor plunged on tho remain-1
lug $10,000 to hlri credit, and In the end
he not only regained what lie hud lost, '
but trebled It. He then Kent a check'
for ?l!0.000 to IiIh batik for Mnrtln '
Copclnud, iiHklug the cashier to let him
know what became of It. Ho wiih In-
roriued that IiIh check bad been sent to
tho hank on which the urlglunl check '
to him had been drawn nml bad not i
been returned. It wan suppooed that
Mr. Copeland had received It.
Tho evening after Trevor hnd Bent
the check to Mr. Copeland he called
nt the house of bis fiancee, Mist)
Klemior Buckley, to take her to the
opera. Ho found Mr. lluckloy uud bid
daughter htumllng over u number ot
necklnee'H, braculets nnd other orna
meiitH from which the gems bad been
extracted nnd wero missing. There was
it pcowi on thu father's fuci nud the
daughter was evidently troubled. Tre
vor wnu Informed Unit Mr. ilucktey,
noticing thnt his daughter wits going
out without her Jewel j, had asked
whero they were. The result was the
production of n good deal of gold, but
no Jewels. I'or thla bhe gnvo no ex

The secret was out. Mlsa ltucklpy,
knowing that her lover was In tlunnc'lni

father through an acquaintance whom
neither knew und placed tho money
borrowed on them to Trevor's credit.

IN THE PACIFIC
Copyright, Vfl, by C. IJ. Iwls.)
Wo were, ns near no I enn romem-
her, In tho latltudo of Mldwny Island,
In tho Pacific, nnd all wan going well
with tho bark HntTest Homo when wo
picked up n sailor nnmed Wllllnms,
who waH drifting about In n Bhlp'n
und suffering which wo nftcrwnrd
came to know was utterly false, nnd
after a coaplo of dayu bo wnn put In
my wutch and entered an an extra
Williams had no sooner got among
tho men than bo began telling of a
great treasuru burled on ono of tho
Kuril Islands. Talk trcasuro to n sail
or and you can bring him to muUny.
Tho amount of money wob given at
1 several million dollars, nnd Williams
, claimed to bo able to locato tho exact
Hpot. It probably never occurred to
one of tho men to ask why ho didn't
go to tho captain with his story and
try to arrange for the removal of tho
treanure, but If It did bo bad somo
unHwer at baud. He proposed taking
possession of tho bark, Nailing bcr to
the treasure Island, securing the great
wealth nnd then using her to get to
England. Ah to the oOlcers and such ,
men oh would not Join, they wcro to bo
cunt adrift In mldoccan to take their
chances. Wo bad a cargo valued at
xiia.000, and I think the man'n game
was to peddle It out among the Ma
rlne, Caroline nnd Marshall Islands,
I get what ho could and then look out
, for hlmbclf.
I So quietly did ho do IiIh work nmong
I tho crew that not the slightest hint of
what wiih going on wbh wafted aft.
He enlisted eight of tho men In IiIh
cause, nnd on the seventh day of bis
coming aboard and while the captain
and I were eating dinner the climax
came. The second mate wnu seized,
bound and gagged, nnd nn alarm was
rnlsed that he had fallen overboard.
Iloth of uh rushed from the cabin, to
be pounced uion mid mndo prisoners.
It was a surprise all around, nnd no
Insolence was offered nny of us. When
Captain Holt demanded an explana
tion, WIlllauiH promptly enlightened
blm. He said:
"We nrc In poiRCfislon of the bark.
goltig after a great treasure,
t"a .. --". ..v.. -..,
wmen ih to uc equally uiviueu octwecn
man and man. It was no use to talk to
you, ror you wouiet nave bcoucu at my
Btory. It woh agreed that none of you
should be hurt, nud we have kept to
"What do you intend to do with us?"
"Send you adrift within an hour."
"Where Is your treasure Island?"
"I will not tell you."
"If you really know of n burled treas
ure, why not let us sail the ship there
nud share with you?" i
"liccnuse that would mean less mon
ey for the rest of us." ,
The captain appealed to the men, de-,
daring that Williams had no real
knowledge of u treasure und would
lead them a wild goose chase, and of
fered to overlook what bad happened If
they would return to duty. The feeling
of the crew was expressed by the old
boatswain, who took off bis cap and
btood In bumble attitude as be bald:
"Captain Holt, we bov nutbln' ogTn
ye uor the mates, but here's n chance
fur every man of us to git rich fur life,
nnd we feels ns If we must take It."
There was more argument, but the
men were stubborn. Those who bad re
fused to Join In the plot now came for
wuid and gave In their allegiance to
Williams, and prcparaUons were begun
for casting us adrift. One of tho quar
ter boats wna hoisted out, and in it
were stowed water and provisions buIII
cleat to last three of us a fortnight
We wero allowed a mast and a sail,
but neither chart nor compass.
We bad made 350 miles to tho cast
nnd were having fair weather vbea we
made a grewsomo discovery. About 3
o'clock lu the nftcrnoon wo sighted a
strange object only n point or two off
our course, and, running down to It, wo
found our old bark floating keel up
ward, with two of( her masts and a
great mass of wrockago surrounding
ber. There was but little sea on, nnd we
scrambled upon tbo bark's bottom. Wo
bad a faint hope that If sound below
she might be righted, especially It we
Blghtcel a craft which would give us
assistance. Sho had probably been lu
tbut position tor three or four days ut
the least, but there was still sutllcletit
ulr to buoy her up. I bud not yot
walked ber length when I heard a
knocking, followed by faint shouts.
Tho captain came nboard to see what
be could mako of It, nnd it was not
lotig before wo wcro satisfied that at
least two men wcro imprisoned In tho
cabin. By lying down nnd placlug our
ears to tho copper sheathing we could
make out thnt they knew some one bad
hoarded tho bark, nud they appealed to
us to cut a hole through which they
could eiseane Wo, had neither, ax not
hatchet but If wo had been fully
equipped tho chnucea would have been
against us. It wnn a, spot whora no ono

Wo believed one of tho Imprisoned
men to bo WllllaiuB und.tho other tbo

pretty plainly, but they; seemed unublo
to make out our renllca. Wo cmiM .in
nothing for thcih, but decided to r.H
