A Salt Water

The dressing bugle had sounded some
time since, but Dorothy still stood
looking out over the sea. She was
thinking how unfortunate It was that
dinner on shipboard always robbed her
of a view of the sunset. She was a
good sailor and consequently had no
excuse for taking her meals on deck.
"Still, if this were the only thing I
had to worry over," she reflected, "I
might Indeed be a happy woman."
And this was why Dorothy Shaw
was a mystery to all her friends. She
refused to be happy, though rich.
"Try it yourselves," she would re
ply to their expressions of incredulity.
"Have so much money left you that
your every movement Is followed by

She felt that she could trust no one.
By sorry experience she had learned
that wealth was a bait few could re

want now?" was her first thought on
the advances of every new friend she

passage in a slow ship under an as
sumed name, but even so was beset
by the constant fear that some one
on board would have seen her picture
in the papers when her uncle left her
the fortune which was her nightmare.
That was an additional reason why
she liked to linger on deck after most
of her fellow passengers had gone
down to array themselves for dinner.
The exclamation was forced from
her by a sudden gust of wind that took
her tarn on Its wings and blew It
straight across the gap of lower after
deck that Intervened on the Alicia be
tween the first and second cabins.
The next Instant she smiled and bare
ly refrained from applauding. A man
standing well forward on the deck had
stretched out his hand and caught the
truant bit of red worsted as it went
whizzing by him.
A half minute later and the two were
standing on the neutral territory of the
deck below, for Dorothy had descend
ed in order to meet him halfway In re
storing her property.
"I'm very much obliged," said she.
"Not at all," said the man.
Be was tall and straight and bad the
clear blue eyes that Dorothy preferred
above all others.
She was about to turn back when the
"Look; there's a whale I lie's just
spouted. He'll come up again in a min
ute, if you care to watch. See, where
my finger points."
Dorothy certainly did care to watch.
In all her crossings she bad never seen
a whale. Now she was rewarded with
a fine view of a large specimen.
As it happened, this one kept on in
the direction of the steamer for awhile,
and after each spout she felt she must
wait and see the next one. And then
her companion seemed to know a good
deal about the creatures, which he Im
parted in a voice which possessed for
Dorothy an Indefinable charm.
Voices were a sort of bobby with her.

During the first night out It came on
to blow great guns. Roberta lay In
his berth late, debating whether to get

threads running through it, and

ute or two and then got up and pro
ceeded to dress with all speed, or at
least with as much Bpeed as was con
sistent with the rolling of the vessel.
All day he haunted the ladles' room
and the decks, almost deserted on ac
count of the storm, and had begun to
read the cards affixed beside each
stateroom door when he suddenly re
membered the foolishness of this plan
to find a woman whose name he did
"This Is simply maddening," he told
himself after a day of fine weather
and still no sight of the tarn's owner.
"At this rate she will escape me again."
Then ho bethought him of a brilliant

Found. A lady's red tarn, shot with

This he affixed to the bulletin board
in the companlonway and that night
dressed a half hour before the first
bugle sounded so as to be In readiness
to receive company during the period
But nobody appeared that evening
nor the next and now there were only
two days left on the voyage.
He had passed a half hour of Im
patient waiting In the stuffy state
room on the third day of the notice,
and, quite discouraged, threw open his
door to go to dinner, when he stepped
squarely into the person who had
emerged from her room Just opposite
In the narrow entryway.
"I beg your pardon," sold Roberts,
and then he fairly gasped as he real
ized that the other person was the
lady of the tarn.
"I have something of yours," he
blurted out "that red tarn yon lost
The girl's cheeks suddenly took on
the hue of the cap that hung over
"Oh," she said, "was It your port I
flung it into? I didn't know. It start
ed to blow away again that first morn
ing, and I thought I was tossing It
into my own cabin."
"And you've been just across that
five foot space," Roberts rejoined,
"while I've been ransacking the ship
for you to restore the tarn," he has
tened to add. "Didn't you see the no
tice on the bulletin board?"
"No. This is the first I've been out
since the storm. It left me with a
nasty reminder of the shaking we all
received. I'm so glad to be on deck
again 1 Did you have a pleasant trip
on the other side?"
"Jolly fine," answered Roberts.
But he wasn't thinking of the other
side at all when be said it, but of the
woman he had lost and found again.
Unconsciously they bad walked to
that part of the deck where Dorothy
had been standing when the tarn blew
off on the voyage over.
"I suppose I must pin the cap in
tightly this time," she remarked. "Ton
won't bo there to catch It If It flies off
again." And she glanced over at the

"I shall miss It very much," he re
plied. "And you won't need It now

"Tes," bho said softly, her eyes fix
ed on Nantucket light toward which
they were swiftly cutting their way:
'1 suppose it has served its purpose,
but I don't want to lose it again.'"
Roberts knew she wasn't thinking ot
all the words Implied, but he was
quick enough to seize at the opening,
and well, before they faced the cus

to take the tam.
