"Something has gono wrong," said
JIlslo In n low Aolce.
Dr. Chrlstobal nodded carelessly.
"A burst steam plpo probably. Such
things will happen nt times. Wo nro
hove to for the moment."
Ho traded on tho Ignorance of his
heaters. Ihc chief steward heard his
explanation and looked nt him fixedly.
Chrlstobal caught tho glance.
"I suppose wo shall loso an hour or
so now V" ho asked.
"Yes, blr. It will I all right by the
tlmo ou havo finished dinner."
The meal drew to Its closo without
much further talk. An American en

but tho chief steward whispered in his

The American knew little of ships,
but ho knew a great deal about mines,
and In a mine If nil accident happens
tho man hi chargo cannot desert his
post to glio information to thoso who
are anxious for It. So ho leplled la
conically: "Guess the captain will tell us all
about It after awhile, Miss llarlng."
HU fierce hissing of the contln
nous escape of bteuiil excited
alarm lu those not accustomed
to machliieiy. Men and wo
men share the unreiihonlug panic of
uulmals when nu unknown fuice le
veals Its pent-up fury. They forget
that safely valves me provided; that
diminished pressure means less risk.
The knowledge that restraint, not free
dom, Is daugeious comes ever In tho
gulso of n new discovery.
Tho mining engineers of course did
not sharo this delusion.
"There must be bouiethlng serious
tho matter or they would not bo wast
ing power llko that," murmured tho
Ameilcnn to one of his fellow profes
sionals, ".V sinashup In tho engine room.
Nothing Is moro certain," was the an

"Wonder If nny ono Is hurt,"
Tho Spaniard bent n little ncaier.
"What can you oxpecti" he whispered
In the unnatural (icacefulness of the
ship's progress, disturbed only by the
roar of the superheated vapor, they
all lieaid the opening of n door nt the
head of the salon stairway. The third
otllcer appeared, his wet oilskins gleam
Ing nnd dripping.
"Dr. .Chrhtobal, tho captain wishes
to speak to ou," ho said,

Ilvldenlly anxious to mold further
questioning, ho ran up the compa.ilo-i.
way. Chrlstobal followed, nnd the
door was closed and bolted ngaln.

1 nm afraid some "poor fellows havo

To nil appearance. Miss Haling iMo-io
among the piongcrs, now tint Chrls
tobal was gone, ivnllred vaguely the
perilous plight of the Kansas. In a
maritime community like that of Val

which fringed the southern path to

The curious sense of waiting, they
knew not for what, which dulled the
thoughts mid stilled the tongues of the
suinll company at the table soon com
municated llself to tho stewards. The
men stood in little knots, exchanging
few words, nnd those mostly meaning
less. Hut the chief steward, whoso
trained ear caught the regular tieat of
tho donkey engine, woko them up with
n series of shnrp orders.
Sw Iteh on tho lights," he said loud
ly. "Clear tho table and hurry up

Tho fiomez thus appealed to was the
1-ngllshmau'M second In command. Ho
acted ns Interpreter when anything
out of the common was required. He
muttered n few words In tho Hlspnno
Indlnu patois which his hearers best
understood, and tho scene In the sa
lon changed with wondrous sudden
ness, Tho glow of the electric lamps
banished tho gathering shadows. The
luxurious comfort of tho apartment
soon dispelled the notion ot danger.
The noise ot the steam exhaust ceas
ed as abruptly ns It lwgiiu. The ship
was riding easily In splto ot tin heavy
sea. And then, while tho occupants
of tho salon wero endeavoring to wr
suadc each other that nil was well, the
loud wall of tho siren thrilled them
with Increased foreboding. It was not
tho warning note of n fog or tho sharp
course signal for the guidanco of a
passing ship, but a sustained trumpet
ing which announced to nny steamer
hidden In tho darkening wnsto ot wa
ters that tlio Kansas was not under
control. It was a wild, sinister ap
peal for help, tho voice of tho dis
abled vessel proclaiming her need, nnd
the nnsvver seemed to como In a fiercer
shriek of" tho gale, while tho added
fury ot tho blast brought n curling
sen over the poop. Tho Kansas stag
gered and shook herself clear.
It was n nerve racking moment. It
demanded the leadership of a strong
man, nnd thero nro few gatherings In
Anglo-Snxondoiu which cannot pro
duco n Caesar when required.
"Say," shouted the American, his
clear voice dominating tho turmoil,
"Hiat gave us a shower bath. If we
could Just stand outsldo nnd see our
selves we should look llko an Illumi
That was tho right note belief In
tho ship, contempt of the darkness and
tho gale. The crisis passed.
"Uhero really cannot bo n heavy
sea," said Ulsle, cheerfully Inaccurate;
"otlicrwlbo wo should bo pitching or
rolling, perhaps both, wheicas we nro
actually far more steady than when
"I find these lulls hi tho storm most
trying." complained Isobel. "They re
mind me of some wild animal hunting
Its prey, creeping up w Ith silent stealth
and then springing."
"I have never before heard a fog
horn sounded so continuously," said
tho missionary's wife, n Mi's. Somer-
vlllc. "Don't jou think they nro
whistling for nsslstuiuoi"
"Assistance? What sort of assist
ance can anybody glvo us here? Un
less tho ship lights herself very soon
wo don't know what may happen."
Isobel seemed to have n premonition
of ovll, and sho paid no liced to tho
effect her words might havo on tho
others. Although tho salon was
warm almost uncomfortably hot ow
ing to tbo closing ot tho main air
passages sho shivered.
Mr. Somcrvlllo drow a book from
his pocket. "If that bo so," he said
gently, "may I suggest that wo seek
aid from ono who Is all powerful? Wo
aro few and of different religions, but
lu this hour wo can surely worship at
a common altar."
"Itlghtl" said tho taciturn English
man, vnrjlng his adjective for once.
Tho missionary offered up a bhort but
heartfelt prajer and, finding that he
carried his congregation with him, rend

During tho brief silence which fol
lowed tho singing ot the hymn It did
Indeed seem to their Rtralncd senses
that tho Qerco vlokuce ot the galo had
somewhat abated. It was not so In
reality. A steady full hi tho barom
eter foretold even worse weather to
come. Courtcnay, nssnred now that
tho main engines were absolutely use
less, thought It ndv Isablo to get steer
lug wny on the ship by rigging the
foresail, double reefed and trapped.
Tho result was quickly ierceptlble.
The Kansas might not bo pooped
again, but sho would travel more rap
Idly Into tho unknown.
Yet this afforded only another In
stiinco of the wny men reason when
they seek to explain cause from effect
The hoisting of that Btrlp ot stout can
vas was ono of tho time factors In the
story of an eventful night, for It was
with gray faced despair that the cap
tain gave the requisite order when
the second engineer reported Hint his
senior was dead, the crown ot two
furnaces destroyed and the engines
clogged If not Irretrievably damaged
by fallen debris. None reallred Iwtter
than tho joung commander what n dis
astrous fato awaited his ship in tiie
gloom of tlio 11 Ing scud nliead There
was n faint chnuco of encountering an
other steamship which would respond
to his signals. Then he would risk
all by laying tho Kansas broadside on
In tho effort to take n tow lopo aboard.
Meanwhile It was best to bring her un
dcr some sort of control, (ho steam

uoiikcy engine, wing et nvniinuie.
In tho salon L'lsle had shielded her
face In her hands to hide the tears
which the entreaty of the lijuin had
brought to her eyes. Somo ono whis

"Won't ou sing something, Miss
It was tho American. Ho Judged
that tho sweet voice which uncon
sciously led tho singing of the hymn
must be skilled In other music.
She looked up nt him, her ejes shin
ing. "Sing! Do jou think It possible?"
"Yes. You can do a "bravo thlug, I
guess, aud that would bo brave."
"I will tr," she said, and sho walk
ed to the piano, which was screwed
athwart the deck lu fiont ot the pol
ished mahogany sheath ot the steel
mainmast. It was lu her mind to play
some lively oxcerpts from the light op
eras then In vogue, but the secret Influ
ences of the hour were stronger than
her studied Intent, nnd when her fin
gers touched tho keys they wandered
almost without volition' Into the Mibtle
harmonies of (jouuod's "Avo Maria."
Sho plajed thu air first: then, gaining
coulldeuce, bho s.iug tho words, using
u Spanish version which had caught
her fancy. It was good to tee tho
flashing ees and Impassioned gestures
of tho Chilean stewnrds when they
fouud that she wus singing lu their
own Inngunge. Theso men, owing to
their ncqunlutnuio with tlio sea nnd,
knowledge, of tho const, wero now In n
stato ot panic. They would havo burst
tho bonds ot dlselpllno on the least
pretext. So, as It chanced, the voice
ot tho English seuorltu leached them
ns tho message, of mi angel, and tho
spell sho cast over them did not loso
Its potency during somo hours ot uan
Excited npplauFO lewaided tho song
Fired by example, tlio dapper French
count approached the piano and asked
Elslo to play Hcranger'B "Hoi d'Yvo
tot." Tho I'lenchmnn took tho merry mon
arch seriously, but tlio lilting melody
pleased every body except Mr. Wood.
Tho "Oh oh's'' and ''Ali-ah's" of the
chorus oiipurently stirred lilin to
BIicccli. Ho strolled from n corner of
the salon to tho sldo of Gray, tho
American engineer, nnd said, with a
contemptuous uod toward tho singer:
"Not u bit ot It. He's all right.
Won't you glvo us n song next?"
If Gray showed tho face ot a sphinx,
so did Mr. Wood, whoso rent name
was Tollemache. Ho bent a little
"Seen tho rockets?" ho asked.
"No. Are wo slgnnllngi"
"Every minute; havo counted fif
teen." "You don't say. Things aro In a
pretty bad shape, then?"
"Well, llko llr'cr Itabblt, wo jimst Ho

'this opinion was lncontiovcrtlblo.
Moreover, Tollemncho wns not ono who

Indeed, (TTIs-wns by far tho longest
conversation ho had Induhrod In since
he enmo nboatd, nor was he finished

Gray turned on lilm sharply. "Oh,

caso to his companion.
The American was beginning to take
tho silent olio's measure. He lilt off
Hie end of a cigar nnd lit It.
"What's nt tho back of vour head?"
ho asked coolly. Tho other looked to
ward the Chileans.
"Those chaps are rotters," ho said.
"You think they will cut up rough?
What can they do? Wo must nil sink
or Bvvlm together."
"Yes, but there nro the wouien, you
know. They must bo looked after.
You enn count on me. Tell tho chief
stownrd nnd tho padre."
Gray felt Hint here was a man nfter
his own heart, the native born Ameri
can having a rough and ready way of
classifying nationalities when the InU
test of manhood Is applied by a chip
wreck or a lire.
"Got a gun?" ho Inquired.
"Cabin going for It llrst opportunl
"isnmo here. Hut tho captain will
glvo us somo sort of winning."
"Perhaps not Die quick, die happy."
Then Gray smiled, mid he could nut
help an; lug, "Tell ou what, cousin, If
you shoot as straight as you talk these
stewards will como to heel, no mntter
"1'nlr shot," admitted Tollcuinche,
and he stalked off to his stateroom,
whllo the count was vociferating for
tho last time:

Between Elsie and Do Poluclllt tho
chorus nindo quite a respectable din.
l'ew noticed that the salon main com
panion had been opened ngaln until
tho sharp bnrk ot n dog Joining In
tho Ii,md clapping turned overy eyo
toward tho stalrwa. Captain Coiirte
uay wns descending. In front ran
Joey, who of course Imagined that the
plaudits of the audience demanded
recognition. Courtcnay had removed
his oilskins before lenvlug the bridge.
His dark bluo uniform was flecked
with white foam, and n sou'wester wns
tied under his cliln; otherwise ids up

"I regret to have to inform ou," said
Courteuay, with tho measured delib

mind exactly what to tay, "that the
ship Ins licou disabled by somo acci
dent, tho cnuso of which Is unknown
at present Tho iiufoituu.ite tosult Is
that she Is hi n position of bomo peril."
There wns n sudden stir among the
Chilean stewards, whoso, wits wero
hh'irpened sulllcleutly to render the
captain's statement quite clear to them
Isobel uttcied n little sob of terror,
.mid Mrs. Somcrvlllo gasped audibly,
"Oh, my poor children!" Elsie, her
lips pnited, sat forward on tho piano
btool. Her senses seemed to have be
como Intensified nil nt once. She could
Eeo everything, hear over thing. Some
of tho Chileans mid Spaniards crowed
themselves; otlieis swore. Count Ed
ouiird breathed haul and muttered,
"Grand DIeu!" Sho wondered why tho
captain nnd Mr. Tollemache, who had
returned fiom his stateroom and was
standing lu the half light of n door
way, should simultaneously diop their
right hands into a coat pocket Mr.
Tollemache, too, gavo u queer little
nod to the American, who had moved

"It may bo necessary nbout day
