Denslow, chief engineer for Ran
ger, Inc., and secret agent of the un
scrupulous .Maliinson, was begin
ning to wish he had never come to
the island of Haraki. He had just
received a wireiess mesage from
Maliinson, aboard the Fremont, giv
ing him the information that Ruth
Ranger and Craig were speeding to
Haraki by plane and might arrive
any moment It was extremely awk
ward, he thought, to be responsible
to two different employers.
The worthy chief engineer bad
been having no little difficulty in
(lowing up the work on the power
house for the Government of Har
aki. Without Big Louis, he would
have been lost He was pondering
over the message when the native
"Ruth Ranger and Craig are com

"They should arrive very shortly."
"Ah I That ees good!" Big Louis
grinned. "I have de grand idee.

dat a terreefic earthquake will hap

dat an omen of de earthquake will
be de arrival of Mees Ranger in de
flane. Dey will believe and flee,
avry?" Denslow did.
The news spread like wildfire, and
when Ruth and Craig eventually
made a landing on the beach the na
tives were thrown in pandemonium.
They fled in all directions with their

house showed signs of decayed
work. But here a handful of fa
ful Americana were doing the bes
they could to upset the pans of
Maliinson. As Craig was helping
the girl over some pipes connecting
the turbine engines, her foot slipped
and the next thing she knew she
was in the strong arms of Craig.
She was startled at the look in his
eye but perhaps more startled at
the beating of her heart
"Ruth," Craig began, "I I love

girl's face as she released herself.

slowly, dropping her eyes, "I owe

on the big hook of a crane, while
Craig was busy betow, bis lace

may venture to say that Craig was
a bit displeased.

Maliinson extended his congrstn
lations, although highly displeased.
He determined to see Denslow and
give new orders.
"I depended on you and you fail

Another thing: a ship Is sailing this

Denslow quickly hunted up Big
Lmils "Louis," he grinned, "sup-
f'os some dynsmlte were accident
v dropped Into th pipes of the up
per power house? If rt went down
vith th water to th turbines, some
thing would happen, eh?"
Louis grinned like a shark.
Eugene Craig, at the power house,
was giving his workmen final in
structions. "The honor of turning
the water into the penstocks above
and starting the turbines shall be
A'.iss Ranger's," he announced. The
word was given, Ruth turned the
wheel, and the water rushed out
from the sluice below the gate. The
girl then turned smilingly to Craig,
but a look of horror was spreading
over his face. She followed s,u gaze
and saw Big Louis throwing a num
ber of odd-looking objects into the
sluiceway a short distance below.
Craig thought quickly. It wai
too late to stop the water and the
dynamite. He rushed to the skip
car, yelled to the hoist men, and the
car descended with great speed.
Craig leaped orf at the bottom of the
grade and ran like a madman into
the lower power bouse where the
valves were which deflected the
water from the turbines and sent h
away to the river bed. He arrived
just in time. The objects floated by
and a few moments later a nnmbet
of explosions followed. With a glad
cry, Craig tbrew the wheels back
again and reversed the water back
into the turbines.
"I don't know what I would evei
do without you," Ruth told Craig a
few moments later when she arrived
at his side.
"I am sure yon wHl never have to
do without me, if if you don't want
to," the young man answered slyly.
And then the Governor and bis
official engineer arrived and greeted
the young people. He was delighted
to learn that the work was complet
ed. "If my engineer reports that ev
erything is satisfactory," be said, "1
have the papers and the bank draff
here to pay your company in full."
While Ruth and Craig discussed
things with Lanera, the engineer
made his inspection. A short time
later he returned and told them thai
everything was satisfactory. Then
the Governor produced the official
papers. Ruth signed the documents
and the bank draft was turned over
"When can we catch a steamer

must get back to the States as soon
The Coventor smiled at the business-Like
attitude of the beautiful
American girL "There is a steamer
leaving today," be informed her,
"and you can catch H if you hurry.
I would be delighted to have you
take my car, it will get you there
in pretty good time."
"Thank you muchly," Ruth re
plied, "but the little railroad car will
be faster." The Governor again
smiled and bade bis American
