discharged from the hospital Juat In
tliot to join Bherman In hla march to

round doing nothing, and yet doing
everything. There wat no occupation
that bt did not try bit band at, and
there wat Dona that bt tried longer
than a week. I'lnally ba drifted eouth,
and, In 'H2 atarted farming on small
call, Tblt evidently proved the as

(or seven years, making a modest In
comt thereby. Dot It was too mo

failed lilm., and In '89 ht dlacovtred
tbt work tliat suited him. tie became
a diver. He waa well fitted for It
pbyalcally, with hla sound heart snd
his good lungs, snd ha madt a success
of It alraoit Immediately.
Three dnyt after tbt Visitor bad
aunk, Joel Vaughton and ont of hla
comrades wort fitted into their suits
nd lowered down to the wreck.
Vaughton bad long ago got over the
tinging in bis tars and the alckneaa
that la Oral Incurred by divers, and he
waa steady as s rock when bt waa low
ered cautiously on his ropt. linking
dowa bt saw tht deck of tlit Visitor
looming op beneath Mm. Already It
waa covered with weeds and green with
tllrat. As his feet touched the boards
bt gave tht algnal to atop lowering,
and. slowly and cautiously, madt bla
way to tht forward hatchway, lifting
cart to lay bit ropt and aupply-plpe
in auch fashion that they might not
become entangled In the stray wreck
age, of which then was great quan
tity. Ills Inspection of tht forwsrd part
. of tbt ship showed btm that It waa In
&o condition to be raised. Tht bow
had been shattered by the contact with
tht reef, and the grinding bad worn
way tht entire planklnga of tht for
, ward decks. lit returned slowly to
tht item of tht vessel and climbed
ovar tht remains of tht rail down on
It tht aandy bottom. Then ha walked
long tht stern of tht ship, keeping
sharp lookout for any damage done
U that direction.
' As he did so ht beheld sight that,
cool veteran ss be whs, earned him
to utter cry and to ' step quickly
backwards. Blaring at him through
tht porthole, his fact livid and sunken,
bis tyet bloodshot, but gleaming with
excitement, bis hstr matted over his
forehead and tils lips moving In wbst
most have been outcries or entreaties,
was t living, breathing man. Vaugh
ton, at first, thought thst bit sense!
bad left him, and ha turned awsy to
see If tht apparition would have gone
when bt Beit looked around. Rut no
tht pale, excited face was ittU there,
nd tills time tht hand wss beckoning
wildly to lilm and tht eyes supplement
ing tht movements. Then, ss soon as
bt realised that ht had attracted
Vaughton'a attention, tht man disap
peared, only to show himself sgaln
(wlth sheet of paper covered with
writing. This bt held up against the
porthole, motioning Vauglitnn to ap-'
proach and read It. It ran as follows:
! HELP III

Tbt words wtrt written In fairly
legible hand and Vaughton bad no
troublt In making them out. ' But tht
question was, what to do. How should
bt save this man! There seemed to bt
no menni of doing it, unless tbt entire
hip wtrt raised, and this, at ht had
(ten by his Inspection, was Impossible.
Then, ttiddtnly, another plan flashed
through bis brain plan that wss,
really, tbt first thing that should bava
occurred to lilm. Why couldn't tht
man trust to his chances of reaching
tht surface before his breath gave outf
Ba, himself, could Inks down ropt
and tit It around bis body ; while tht
'tneH'itovi ffsuTsd 'h'tid lip' by R ss
quickly as they could.
Vaughton motioned to tht man, who
bad been gating anxiously, at btm, and,
nooning to enure iiiin of nil assist'
net, gavt tht signal to bt hauled up.
At soon as bt was store tht turfact
and bad been stripped of his helmet,
ht told tht men, ss briefly snd as
quickly as bt could, tht strsngs sight
that bt bsd seen. A long ropt wss
secured and Vaughton wrote out bis
plan on pltct of cardboard, so thst
tht man might understand exactly
what was to bt dont.
Then ht dived down second time,
taking with him the extra ropt. Ht
found tbt man occupying tlit position
bt had left him In, only staring up
wards, watching for ths help that bt
kntw was to come from above. Vaugh
too held tht sheet of cardboard close
up to tht porthole, and, as tht man
within read, bit face lightened op In
comprehension. Then, upon signal
from Vaughton, the prisoner threw
open tht door of tht compartment,
and, quick as a thought, wss bound
sround tht wolit with tht ropt. The
sign was given to tht walling men
above, and bt waa hauled up as faat
at human alnews could do It,
Tbt stranger reached tht aurfact In
an unconscious state, but was soon
revived, snd, after having eaten all
tht aandwlchea that were to'bt pro
cured, ht ahowed great willingness to
tell bis remarkable atory.
"I was sleeping," be said, "at tht
time tht ship foundered, and If was by
a miracle that the door of tlit water
tight compartment was closed, else I
would not bt here to tell the tale.
Von may wonder at tht fact that I
slept so soundly that tht hurry and
confusion on tht decks did not awaken
me. I wilt answer that simply by tell
Ing yon that I regularly roll off my
bed at night and never wake up. When
I did wake up, however. Imagine my
astonishment, upon glancing out of my
porthole, to find that I wat entirely
surrounded by wster wster to left of
me. In front of me, above me, ana to
