then fioiu the prison under the hatches
nnd nilnvlitig with the moans of wom

I can "ee now tho look In Wilson's
eyes a. when mice ngnlu we were on

"The', was a lord call, seems to me,
and down there," nodding toward the
cnbln -"down Ihero In such an hour
one thinks tapldly. N'estcopas? And
with n mighty lug nt his heart nnd
something In his throat like a knife
thrust through ho wishes wishes
that he hail beeirn better boy."
Somehow nfter tho storm things
seemed not qulto tho same ng.iln. Un
rest was everywhere. We who were
favored haunted the captain's room,
listened to his varus, drank sparingly
of his wine and freely of his cheer.
Yet it cloud no larger than n man's
hand perhaps, nnd yet large enough to
cast n shadow, seemed lianglug over
the ship, affecting olllccrs, passengers
nnd crew alike, gainsay It as wc might.
Every ono wns brightened visibly by
the half day's stay nt Nagasaki, nnd in
tho excitement of the trip through the
lnlnml sea tho typhoon was forgotten,
nnd we becamo n,ultc our usual selves
ngnln, nil except Wilson, who still
seemed restless and 111 nt ease.
"When nru wo duo at Kobe?" he ask
ed after tllUn wus over nnd wo were all
lu tho captain's room, as usual, when
he wns off duty.
"About dark," the caplnln replied
absently, nddlng nttcr a moment's
pause, "nnd-wcll. I've slowed up n bit
so we enn get a look nt the phnntotn
coach, you know."
"Tho phauton conch!" echoed Jack.
"Wlint Is that?"
"Never heard of It? No? It's u queer
htory, nnd I'm bound to Hud out for
myself If there's nny truth In It.
Haven't happened along here nt tho
right time since the ghost flrbt put In
nn npppnrance. It shows up only at
dusk, they bay."
"Tell us the story, captain, do!"
"All right," ho said, and, lighting a
fresh cigar uml swinging himself
around In his chnlr so Hint ho fuced

Jan. 21, 1S70, causing tho loss of tho
