The fishermen had gathered at Hay

They had been interrupted by Joe

He had been called to the life aaving

throughout the atorm. He had wit
nessed all of the disaster! and came in
to report them.
Dan Laphem waa one of the most
popular men in the village. He was

pull a boat with auperior skill to any
other man, talked but little and waa as
biavtaie lion. He knew not the
meaning of fear. He wai a boon com

Lapham from their convertation.

concerned. All of the fishermen knew
of eomethlng good and none spoke ill
of the young man, who tingle handed
had rowed a boat and tended a tiap for
mora than a year.

van the strong and vigorous young
man over estimated his skill.- He waa
caught in the undertow like the grip of
a cable car and carried at mercilessly
toward the Breakers as were his friends
whom he would have rescued.
But he was not even granted the
nrivlleae of following the course their
boat bad taken. He had cronsed the
dividing line oi tha receding undercur

but he could Influence the boat to some
extent In the course it took to ruin.
The bleak rocks were preferable to the
white-capped breakers and the ocean
bavond. and he steered the best he
could for them.
There was one chance in a thousand of
death there, by clinging to
the rocks that would destroy him, but
once in the breakers, no earthly
hone was left. They had never yet
surrendered a victim alive in all the
atorv of disasters at the mouth of the
Columbia. But fortune had favored
the man, at the reader already knows,
though his escape wat still by no means

as uninviting at death itself, but Lap

as one is acquainted with hia home and
the landmarks about the place.
At high tide Chinook rocks were sub
merited, save that one spur near the
center of the group extended above the
hiirh water mark. It was to this that
Dan had clung throughout the day.
Finding himself again able to walk
about he began to plan for escape. He
had hopes that he might hail some
early morning fisherman by picking a
conatilcuoua place on the rocks from
which point he could view the river
and bay, but he was anxious to leave
his place of Imprisonment earlier if
He peered into the water at the foot
of the rocks anil examined every nook
and corner, with the hope that he
might find hii boat or some other craft
that might have drifted to the place
A few lights in tha village to the
north showed that some of the lnhabi
tants were yet awake. Ha noticed one
Unlit with which he and all the fisher
men were familiar. It was a light in
an Isolated cabin far up the beach.
This light tonight waa a source of
mystery to Dan. It shone from the
cabin of Ringwold and Sankala. He
had seen them going to their doom
that morning. He did not believe any
earthly power could save them. His
final conclusion was that they had left
the lik-ht burning In tha early hour of
morning when they went out into the
storm or that their bodies had been re
covered by the life savers and neighbors
who were sitting up with the dead.
Poor Bankalal Dan aat down upon
the rocks and reflected. He thought of
the frail nirl whom he had so often as
sisted In fishing her net while her aged
companion sat helpless in the boat.
He thought of how cheenui toe nine
one worked day after day to sustain her
protector. He thought of tbe self
denial, of the bravery and kind heart
of the nirl and then he saw the inno
cent confiding blue eyes as they had so
often thanked him wheu he rendered
her assistance at the traps, and a big
tear stole into the eyes of the young
athlete. In the very darkness he was
handsome. His black hair bung about
his head in gracelul wavy curls. His
broad shoulders were erect snd his arms
and neck exhibited strength and beau
ty. He had not a superior in physiue,
courage, self control of popularity in
"Poor 8ankala!" he murmured. "I
neglected the child. I never really
helped her as I should. She was de
serving. She was frail. I am strong.
But why did I not think of this In
He cast one longing glance at the
light in the cabin and then turned to
look about for a means of escape. The
water now rested calm and black about
him. It was only off toward the bar
that he could hear tha roaring of the
waves and see an occasional white cap
leap up between him and tha horlson
beyond. The storm was gradually
skulking away toward tha center of the
examining the south shore. But he
suddenly stopped in astonishment. Ha
saw a splash In the water to the south
and then he heard a number of muffled
oars. It was now after midnight and
he did not understand such a proceed'
Ing from that quarter. The young
fisherman immediately secieted himself
among the driftwood so abundant on
this Island and awaited developments
It was too early for fishermen to begin
to stir and the boats were not coming
from the right direction anyway
He did not have long to wait. Dark
objects soon appeared moving cautious
ly on the water in every direction from
the south. Small boata fairly dotted
the river and there was a silence in the
mufUihg of the oars and the upright
figures in the craft that was ominous
Every boat contained four or more
persons and as they began to land on
the south shore of the island Dan dls'
covered that the men weie armed.
The problem was now simple to Dan
Lapham. It was the advance guard of
the southside fishermen. The clash waa
now at hand. The war had long been
threatened between the southside and
nortliHide fishermen and the southsidera
had taken the initiatory steps,
The men diew their boata upon the
sand and waited, as it were, upon their
guns. Dan's eyes and ears were open
He was not long In learning their loca
tions. They formed a circle obscured
from view by the diift wood, a few
yards south of Dan's place of conceal
He gathered fiom their conversation,
caniedonin low but distinct tones
that the norlhslders would arrive about
daylight, and that their purpose was to
capture their opponents, take them
back and land them on their own
shoie; then hurry their boats to sea
scuttle them, destroying their traps
during the day
"We will stop these men from de
stroying the salmon run!" said the
leader emphatically, which sentiment
was quietly applauded by hia followers,
Dan Lapham had no time to lose,
While the men were completing their
arrangemets for the early morning at
tack, the young northsider silently stole
from his hiding place, drew one of their
boats which had been anchored at the
north point of the island, out into the
deep water, and rowed away to the
north without so much as creating tha
noise of a ripple upon the bay.
He took the light in Sankala's cabin
for a guide, and he found it a true one.

The Hoyal Color.
Turple has always been considered
tbe royal color. The Ill-fated Charles
I. was, however, at his own desire,
crowned In a robe of white. Although
he was seriously reminded that of the
two riceptloiis to this rule, Hichard II.
and Henry VI. who wore white satin
Mties at their coronations; both had
come to a violent end, one at Ponte
fraot castle and one In the Tower,
Charles I. was resolute In hia decision,
and, whim, twenty-three years after
ward, almost to a day, his body was
conveyed to Its grave through a heary
snowstorm, the superstitious could not
help remarking that the third "whit
king" had suffered a violent death.
"I learn that the Van Huxtons allow
their chickens to diet on their neigh

fed fowl or 'chicken de roses.' "
