left muter of the aituation. old Sea
dog puraned his investigations. Tbe
hip bid filled with und in tbe neigh
borhood of the captain'! quarteri. It
wu thii very point that attracted the
Ciafty fiaherman'i attention.
rJhovels were lecnred and the boys
were ordered to delve their war into
the captain 'a room. It was easy to find
tbe door aince tbe aand only extended
about half way to tbe ceiling of tbe
cabin.
While the boyi were shoveling back
the dripping land, old Seadog was al
ternately on tbe lookout iniide and oat.
He let nothing on the itianded vessel
escape hii observation and kept a con
stant vigilance out over the bay to ete
that no one was approaching.
"If I can make sure that they were
board my future is no longer an un
ceitainty," said tbe old man is be
mused to himself. "It was impossible
for any one to survive," he continued.
"The whole crew and all aboard went
to the bottom of the sea and the crabi
will have diBflgured their bodies be
yond recognition before they rise to the
surface. And even should they escape
these busy scavenger! they may drift
back to the ocean where they will furn
ish food for the larger fish."
The fishermen were already suspici
ous of old Seadog md when driven from
tbe wreck at the muijie of his gun they
immediately returned to the village
and spread tbe news.
"Tbe officers ought to take the mat
ter in hand," said one.
"Yes, be if up to stealing the ship
and cargo," said another.
Tbe Justice of the peace was appealed
to as well ai the village constable, but
these two functionaries declared that
tbey bad only Jurisdiction on tbe land
and not on tbe sea.
"But the pillaging should be stop
ped," insisted tbe honest fishermen
When the justice of the peace saw
that his neighbors were bent on some
Kind of legal action, he informed them
that tbe higher courts had Jurisdiction
on the waters; that the govern men t
Itself would act if it were informed;
that tbe vessel was a foreign one and
tbat the consul of the country from
which the veisel came would protect it
from tbe hands of the land pirates.
Astoria then bad her customs offi
cials and she had a United States com
missioner. Cape Disappointment had
her lighthouse, but it was before tbe
days of telephone and telegraph service
at that point and there was no way to
communicate with tbe government
authorities at Astoria, sixteen miles
away on tbe south bank of the river,
axceDtbv crossing tbe stream in a
mall boat.
But those men of the river weie not
low in arranging for the trip. A small
ail boat was launched and three of the
meet intelligent went aboard and were
aocn cutting their way across noith of
Band Island as fast as the wind could
carry them.
Old BeaJog's watchful eye did not
let them escape unnoticed, and he
knew that ordinary matters did not
prompt his neighbors on such a Jour
ney. "Diaforvonr lives, boys; lift out
' that sand I We may have trouble be
fore our Job 11 done. Borne of those
halfbreeds have cone to Astoria to
raise trouble and we must get well and
through before tbe storm blows back."
Old Seadog did not mean to disturb
the property left on the vessel. He
had a personal motive in view. His
mission was not in quest of gold;
neither would he have carried away
tbe smallest thing of intrinsic value,
but would have risked hli life and that
of his boys for that which he sought
While delving their way into the
cabin they came upon many valuables.
These were caat aside as so much rub
bish. Gold and silver trinkets were
thrown upon the heaps of eand as i (
they were of no value.
It was several bouri after they bad
begun work and old Seadog was already
casting uneasy glances toward the
tooth side of the river when the boys
truck the sea captain I iron chest.
While battling with the storm the
rocking, tossing vessel had shaken this
heavy receptacle from its usual place
and had burled it about the roim like
a ping pong ball. But like a nedge it
bid been driven into a heap of fur
niture and baggage Jammed together in
one cornel of the room and backed by
these and tbe beivy bank of sand piled
upon the top of the whole, it seemed a
thing as solid and immovable as the
bull of the vessel itself.
It was at this crisis that old Seadog
discovered a revenue cutter approach
ing from the south, at whose helm
floated the stars and stiipes.
"Exert yourselves, boys, exert your
selves for your lives, or all is for
naughtl those fools have informed the
officers and they will soon be upon us,"
aid tbe old man.
Then they all put to ana Rive
their energy to securing the Iron chest.
The old man abandoned his lookout
and Joined the boys in the work. The
timbers were interlocked abont it and
at the same time deeply imbedded in
tbe sand.
"Get the capstan lever, boys; get
the capstan. We must have her now
or it will be too late!" exclaimed the
excited old Seadog.
Some crowbars had been unearthed
from the ship's tool room and with the
addition of the capstan lever they set
to we'i with renewed vigor.
"Pry down to the left, boys, pry
down to the left!" shouted the father.
Already the exhaust of the govern
ment launch could be heard as it slowed
np to weigh anchor at a safe distance
from tbe sandbar.
It wonld only require the lowering
of a boat and a few strokes of the oars
to land the officers upon the fishermen
Fortune had alwayi favored old Sea.
do and it favored him again. lth
heavv lutch the? brought the chest
from tinder the timbers tbat held it
down.
Fortune doubly favored him. When
the iron receptacle had been turned
round it wai found that the key. itill
remained in the lock. The captain
had possibly attempted to open it at
the last momeut and had been driven
out by the wav-4.
"Bush outside, boys; rush outside;
I will do the restl" commanded the
stern old parent. The boys were
barely in time. They were confronted
by the officers immediately upon climb
ing to the deck.
"In the name of the government,
men, we proclaim you our prisoners,"
calmly spoke one of the officers.
The bovs looked bewildered dui
spoke not in the absence of their fath
er, to whom they had always looaea
for advice and guidance. '
But the old man was busily engaged.
With a surprising quickness he had
opened the chest and tore from it the
register roll. Then he closed the
chest, locked it and cast the keys into
the water at the lower end of the bole.
Then he climbed out through a port
hole at the rear, hurriedly secreted
the roll in the sand at a safe distance
from the vessel, climbed back through
and Joined his boys who were prison
ers on deck. But before he had hidden
the parchment upon which the ship's
register was made be had turned
through it quickly. Hn eyes bad
rested npon two names, lull brougtit
from blm the ejaculation:
"Old Headog rejoices at last; old
Seadog rejoices at last; old Seadog has
cause to rejoice I In the language of
the convict who swam to the Diamond
Isles, 'the world belongs to old Seadog
now!' "
CHAPTER IV.
Odd Companioni.
After releasing the old man and tbe
child from their entanglement they
were carried to the nearest fisherman's
cabin. The man, though lashed to the
spir and pinioned to the earth by the
driftwood was held no closer than was
the babe. His arms held it like a
vise. They had been so long about it
that they had formed like clasps
around the body and, benumbed by
the cold, they were ai difficult to pry
apart as are the cieepers which bold a
vine in its upward climb.
Young ai it was, only a few weeks
old, the infant possessed more vitality
than did its aged protector. It
stretched forth Its little hands and legs
with surprising strength and cried piti
fully, though in a voice that showed
that its lungs were still strong and
healthy.
But the old n.an icarcely breathed.
He opened hil dull eyes for a moment
and stared blankly into tbe faces of
those directly in the line of his vis'
ion, and then closed them, lie was
unconscious of all that was going on
about bim. Hii long gray hair hung
in strands about his face and neck.
Hil silken gray beard was matted with
the sand and trash of the beach. But
for the slow pulsation of his heart he
would have been pronounced dead by
those around bim.
The women were running about as
busy as only women can be when they
re doing some great a"t of charity,
and their devotion wai Increased by
the (act that some dead mother's chl d
had fa'.len into their hands, and each
felt a double responsibility on this ac
count.
Some were bringing dry clothing
from the wardrobe of their own chil
dren, others were warming row' milk
in a small basin on the stove, while a
more thoughtfu' mother wai sharing
the breast of her own babe with the
little waif. And those good women
smiled with tears in their eyes as the
little stranger tugged greedily at its
new found iuother's1reast.
"Oh, it will get along all right,
said one.
"Yes, so long as it eats, the signs are
good," said another.
"Just so you don't give it loo much,"
remarked an elderly woman who was
watching the proceedings.
"But I fear it is all over with the
old gent," whispered one of the women
who had just returned from the adjoin
ing room where the men were working
with tbe child i elderly companion.
The men were rubbing bis armi and
legs, and ironi were being heated to
place at his feet. Some brandy had
been forced through his lips, but it
was slow in showing encouraging
effects.
His eyes were fixed in his head, his
features were as pale as death. His
firm lips were set as if in bis last con
scious moment be had fixed hii determ
ination upon some given object.
He was a little more than five feet
as he lay upon the bed. Still he was
rather plump and well-kept tor bis age,
Hut his skin was smooth and his mus
cles soft, which indicated that he had
not been a man of toil.
When the hair was pushed
from his (ace a broad intelligent
head was exposed. Had those fisher
men been able to read phrenological
signs they would have discovered that
the aged man before them wai no or
dinary being, His intellectual fore
head, small feet and bands, dress and
general appearance indicated that he
had followed one of the professions.
In the meantime the village physi
cian arrived and aided in resuscitating
the old man. The child gradually
passed awav to sleep after its wants
were satisfied and slept ss soundly as
if its own mother still hovered over it.
It was a soft sweet sleep such only as
is seen in tbe repone of the innocent
before the trials and tribulations of
life have come to their knowledge.
It knew not of its lost mother and
father, the fearful storm at sea, the
hours in the water, the terrible night
among the driftwood on tne beach. It
slept in a repose akin to perfect blins.
' file's a darling little girl," said
the woman who had shared her own
child's clothing with the little sleeprr.
"What pretty blue eyes she has,"
r marked she who bid warmed the
milk.
"Such dainty little limbs," laid th
woman who had ran about tbe place
nervouily trying to do everything and
bad accomplished but little.
"But look what pretty feiturei and
sweet lips," said the one who had
nursed the child to sleep, with an air
of superiority.
The child did not exceed one month
in age. It was probably younger. Its
light hair, fair skin and pretty blue
eyes even at so young an age showed
that it was a born beauty. Still its
features were much like those of the
Finlanders, so many of whom had set
tled along the Columbia in the fishing
districts.
"Tbey think tbe old man il dying,"
said one of tbe women in a whisper
who bad been watching the men work
with the aged sufferer.
"Oh, such a pity," remarked the
women in a subdued chorus.
"We will never learn the child's
name or anything about the late of its
mother or father."
"It must have been born on the voy
age," said one, "for they say the ship
was a Finnish veesel and has been
many weeks at sea."
"Old Seadog'i action in the matter
is a mystery to everybody. Wby he
made such quick haute to board tbe
ship is beyond all nnderetanding. And
be actually pointed firearms at the men
when they attempted to go aboard t'.ie
vessel," said a woman who had just
been talking with her hutband on tbe
outside. "But tbe officers will ravel
the matter out,', she continued ss she
remembered the details ot the episode
as given her by her husband.
Then there was a commotion out
side. A fisherman bad Just arrived
from the sand spit. He had brought
news of toe arrival 01 omcers at me
scene of the wreck.
'Old Seadog and his boys are all un
der arrest!" was whispered from lip
to lip.
(To te continued)
LIVES WITHOUT SLEEP.
Han la New Jersey Has Been Awake
for Ten Years.
"How is that some persons want
much sleep, Borne can do on little,
while there are still others who can
get lloug without any sleep at all?"
asked a writer In the New Orleans
Times-Democrat. "Now here is a
problem, a solution of which nilgh't
prove of vast benefit to humankind.
I am reminded of the Importance of
the subject by a case to which my at
tention was recently called In New Jer
sey. Albert Herpln, of Trenton, born
In France, a hostler, declares that he
has not slept a wink for ten years,
and hli statement, according to the
New York Herald's correspondent. Is
borne out by the physicians who have
at different times treated him for iu
omnia. "Of bla case Herpln says: 'I have
been to hospitals, where they attempt
ed to druir me In order to produce
sleep, but I would not undergo that
sort of treatment. 1 have given up
the idea of sleeping for the rest of my
life; in fact, I'm so used to It that I
till nk. no more about the matter. I've
heard of people going Insane that were
troubled with insomnia, but I never
will. I am well and eut three meals
a day.'
"It would seem from this that sleep
Is not one of life's essentials. Is sleep
absolutely necessary to healthful ex
istence? Is It possible for men to live
to the reasonable and average ago
without sleep? These are large ques
tions and they ramify In many ways
when one begins to deal with them
speculatively. In the first place, much
will depend upon the type and tem
perament of the man. Persons whose
mental capabilities are of a low order,
whose receptive powers are limited,
and who are wlthoilt the afflatus which
gives a rich poetic color to the things
of this lifepersons who are sluggish
mentally and temperamentally, and
who feel only when pricked and prod
ded by tbe sharp exigencies of the
struggle for existence, the 'dumb, driv
en cattle' of the world, must needs
sleep , much; whereas the men and
women of a sensitive mold, whose
minds are as fragile and responsive as
the most delicate of photographers'
plates, who catch and hold, and love
the Images as they tilt In variant shad
ings the men and women who men
tally trace the very finest of the nu
ances and absorb much of the forces
which play upou them such as these
may do on less sleep than persons of
the dull, unresponsive and unpoctlc
type. Napoleon required but little
sleep; but, as a great American who
was once reminded of the fact remark
ed, all men are not Napoleons. I have
known many men, well advanced In
years, who actually slept less than
younger and more vigorous meu."
The Word Plcnlo.
The derlvatiou of the word pl.'iilc Is
uncertain. In London Notes and Que
ries of isr3 attempts were made to
trace Its origin.
One correspondent says:
"I'nder a French form the word ap
pears lu a speech of HolwWerre, Vest
lei kqu'U doit m'accuHer. et mm dans
les plquesnlques.' An earlier Instance
occurs in one of Lord chesterfields
letters, dated October, 174S."
Another writer of the same date
I tries to trace the word from France
back ! Into Italy. Starting with the asump-fere-
tlon that plquenique lu French Implies
a party at which each guest provides
some particular dish or performs some
special duty, he finds the Italian ex
pressions nicclila (diityl and plivnU in
trilling servlcei. and from thoe he
coins plccola nlivhla iplcnlci.
A French encyclopedia, lsi.'l, hns it
that the word Is compounded of th
simple Euullsh pick ito chonsei and
nick (In the nick of time, on the "pur
of the moment). In France the term
Is also used for Indoor picnics.
