safely, loaded wheat, and pooh wero out- "

nothing occurred to forewarn mo of the !
terriblo adventuro tho futuro had in !

Wo woro to tho southward of Valpa-

ftuntness that would Buddunly and with- i

often fell on tho deck and lay there uu- j

Ono day, a gloomy, forbidding day,
such aa tho mariner often meets with :
down there, I had tho afternoon watch, I
and was superintending one of my men
who was fixing a ratline in tho weather i
uiizzon topmast rigging. The fellow
was very clumsy, to say tho leafet of it. '
I got annoyed watching his awkward-
ness: more annoyed, in fact, tlian was
warranted, 1 think, now that I look back.
But 1 was growing more and more
irritable every day, which was probably
owing to my "fainting spells. Suddenly
I becaino so excited that I jumped into
tho miz7cn ligging, and was into tho top
in ,i trice. I was about to pull tho fellow
away from his job when a fit came on.
A sudden mist clouded my eyes. My
senses left me: 1 reeled and fell from the
top to tho deck. In my descent 1 struck
onco or twice, which caused mo to turn
ovor, with tho result that I fell on my
When 1 recovered consciousness I was
lying in a bunk in tho hospital. Still
there was a Ihick mist before my eyes.
I could indeed see everything eo as to
recognize where I was, but somehow my
To sit up, but my muscles failed me.
At last tho truth struggled into my dark
ened mind. I perceived at last that 1
was in a perfectly cataleptic trance.
The strange part of it was that my mind
was almost as active as ever. I know
all that was going on about mo, ami 1
felt an overwhelming terror at my pos
It was soon mado known to me. The
captain entered iny room. I could hear
indistinctly, as if it wero afar off, his
footstep on tho deck, Then tho stoward
also came in. 1 heard them consulting
together, and both camo to tho conclu
sion that 1 was dead, that my neck was
broken by tho fall.
"Tell Sails to como in and take his
measure. Wo must bury him to-morrow
while tho fine weather lasts," I
heard tho captain say, and presently tho
sailmaker camo in and measured me for
the last hammock 1 should over sleep in.
I could not feel him, but I lniew by his
motions what he was doing. I will not
describe how thoy laid mo out on the
cabin tablo and left me there, while
Sails, closo by, mado my shroud. Stitch,
ttitch, stitoh went his needle, seeming
to enter into my brain every timo in
stead of tho thick canvas. 1 can distinct
ly remomber that while 1 lay thero the
steward tried to closo my eyelids, but,
thank God, they flew up every time and
left me Piio poor consolation of seeing
tho preparations for my doom.
At last all was finished. The canvas
wa's spread on tho deck and I was laid
in it. Then tho sailmaker began to

that time I was thinking in my dull way
what fools they wero for not looking into
my shroud for tho lost knife. As I after
ward learned, it was ltost day at noon
that I was carried on deck and laid on a
plank preparatory to being shot over
board. Tito men ono by ono took a look

soon that it could not last much longer.

my roftigu with the energy of despera
tion and waited bitterly for death.
Finally nif immense wavo, higher than
all that had gono before, raised its wild
head and rolled down on me.
My time had come. I was swept likoa
child from my raft and earned on tho
crest of tlio mouator as 1 supposed to
death. But once again the hand of the
Almighty was stretched out to save mo.
I was dashed with inconceivable vio
lcnco against something solid as a rock.
Ropes wero floating all around me. I
grabbed several and then swooned.
I awoke and recognized tho old hospi
tal of tho Osprey. Then 1 thought my
burial and subsequent adventures wero
nil a wandering fancy, and that I had
uevcr loft tho hospital. But I was soon
undeceived. A kind face bent over me
and I wtw onco moro tho features of my
good captain. Ho would not permit me
to speak at all that day, but on tho next
I was allowed to relate my story, which
I did in a weak and quatserlng voice, 1

me that, after burying mo, as they
thought, they had kept on their course
for two days", when thoy encountered a
heavy head galo which drovo them back
on their course again. They shipped a
terriblo sea. which carried away boats
and houses forward, but it was the last
exeition-of the gale, for oftcrthat it died
tangled in ropes, lying in tho leo scup
per. At lirht thoy thought my coipse
had been washed aboard again, as lias
been several times done, but on lifting
mo up they saw unmistakablo signs of
life, and with great awo and wonder
carried mo into tho cabin. As to my
comatose t-lcep, tho captain said he had
never seen anything moro like death.
He had doubted if tho most skillful doc
tors could have discovered any life in
mo. IIo was confident my neck had
