the rounds that a irlant wnvo which

All told, there were eighty iicrsons
on board when tho Kansas left Val

were men of mixed nationalities, rang

fcsn nearly fifty sailors and nrerMn.
Unfortunately tlio explosion of tho

mid oao of his Juniors, wnllo six stok

It was illscotcrctl that boforo ho died

mid engineer, a Now ens lo tnah named
talker who rushed to tho englno
room at the first Indication of n mis
Imp, found his chief lying lu collapso
on the lever platform. Wnlkcr prompt
ly opened certain levers, which allowed
the fti'iun to escnpo freely; then ho
carried his comrade out of tho spume
to the deck. It was too late. Partial
suffocation had pheed too great a
strain on n iltsenreil heart. Ity tho
time Dr. Chrlstobal was summoned n
brao man was dead.
Courtenay, who had left Instructions
that ho wai to be called when the
Kvaugcllstns light was sighted, was
sound r.sleep. In the elevnled quar
ters assigned to tho captain tho nolso
of tho explosion differed Uttlo from tho
thunderous blows of tho sea, but tho
stopping of tho engines awoke him In
stantly. He felt tho ship Jurch away
from her course mid saw tho quick
sweno of tho compass Indicator over
his head. As he ran down the gang
way leading from tho bridge ho heard
tho olllcer of tho watch say:

Several minutes elapsed before ho or

Tho electric light wns uninjured. It
revealed tho lioilles of several men,
either dead or Insensible, lying amid
tho scattered coal. Shovels, btoklug
rods mid pieces of Iroii pinto had been
hurled about in wild confusion. Tho
door of ono furnnco was blown clean
out of Its bolls, furnnco bars and firo
bricks strewed tho Iron deck, whllo
each tlmo tho thlp rolled tho heavy
clank of loose metal somewhere In tho
englno room proved that the damage
was not confined solely to tho stoke
hold. If Courtenay could havo dropped
quietly Into tho sea through the sfout
hull of tho Kansas ho would hnvo wel
comed tho certain result of that bitter
moment. Hut ho wns tho captain, and
men would look to him for salvation.

and, at any rate, die at hla post, bo,
choklug back Ids misery, ho orgunlzed
tho work of rescue. Slings were form

first to bo lifted to tho upper deck.
Tho stokehold wns quickly emptied of
Its Inanimate occupants. Living nml

It was then that tho giant wavo
leaped madly over tho poop, ns though
the sea were resolved to swallow Its

Fccond olllcer, outsldo on tho bridge,
had to cling to a stanchion for his life.
Courtenay and ltoylo saw two boats

dog iccolted him wllh delight, for Joey
knew n leal galo from n sham ono ns

Courtenay patted his head, opened a
drawer In the writing table nnd drow
forth two photographs, which ho kiss

drawer nnd went out, lotting tho dog
como wllh him. That wns Ills farewell
to his mother nnd sister. It was the
first and last sign of sentiment ho ex
hibited during that night of great en
durance. When he returned from tl' salon he

thus glvo help to helm and propeller.
Still, they might servo now to cniry

Leaving tho chart on tho table, where
It wns secured by drawing pins, Coiir
tcnny went back to his cabin to obtain
n pair of sen boots. Seeing Joey sitting
on his tall nnd shivering, tumble to In

A glance showed l:lm the dnrk wall of
tho mainsail rising nbnft tho nftcr fun

ba lug recovered his wits, wns keeping
tho ship's noso up to tho wind by n,
steady pressure to port. Tho galo was
as llerco ns ever. Tho seend officer
shouted In Courtcnay's ear:
"I am afraid, sir, the wlr.il r.r. shift

' Coiirtcnny looked nt tho com.oass.

"So, no; not on my account. I think

A pungent smell of Iodoform came
to them up tho hntchwnft. Joey, who
had followed braiely In their wake
and wns now n few steps down tho
Hairs, crept back. awed.
"At least let me ask Dr. Chrlstobal
If you mny come. Vnu will be -quite

Klslo detected n return to his earlier
manner, and she was grateful to him
for It. Sho did not llko him so well
when ho was stern mid curt.
"Yes," she said. "That Is only rea
sonable, but please tell him I shall not

wounded men to bo attended mid dead
men down there too. I shnll not
scream or faint, liclleio me."
"I nm suru of that. Not ono woman
lu a thousand could hao played and
sung to cheer others ns you did nfler
tho accident happened."
It might haio been Iho reaction from
her exciting pnstago along the deck,
but Dlslo experienced a sudden warm
glow in her face. Somehow It wns de
lightful to hear those words from such
a man In tho hour of his supreinest
trial, for she renllzel what It meant
to him, even though his llfo wero

Sho stooped, ostensibly to grasp tho'

Chrlstobal himself to send her nway,
but tho doctor had taken off his co.it
nnd bared his nrnis. ills appearance
was grimly businesslike.

My work Is nearly ended. I mn sure
you wilt make her understand that this

Again he swept the row of silent
bodies with u comprehensive hind.
Yet the trhlal thought Intruded itself
on the sailor that this elegant old
Spaniard dologlted the task of ex
planation to him solely because he ill I
not wish to appear before MUs Max
well lu n somewhat disheveled state.
He dismissed the notion nt nuce.
"How ninny?" he asked, glancing nt

his helpers to lift tho next sufferer on

Courtenay returned to the stairway
At tho top stco'l Mule, looking cngrrly

i:Mo found, In her nuiaromcnl, that
there was less sense of danger lu fac
ing tho wind than In Isdug driven
along before II. Moreover, sho had
greater confidence during this second
transit over Iho exposed portion of Iho
deck. Sho felt Courleuay drugging her
nil Irresistibly until they gained the leo
nf Iho smoking roopi. Ho let her rest
thciu beneath the ladder leading to tho
bridge. Then n strange rouilslou of
feeling cainu to him, IIo experienced!
uu oerw helming desire not to Iki part

that ho might never ceo her ngnln, so
ho shouted u-ry closo to her cheek:
"Would you like to sit J 1 1 my cabin n
Uttlo while If I bring Miss Daring?"
She thought that would lie splendid.
Courleuay, If any one, would succeed
hi calming Isobel. Ill onler to m.iku
heri'clf heaid she hi turn had to put
her lips qiiltu near to (.'oiirtenay's face.
"Yes," sho cried; "1 shall be only too

There Is no accounting for tho wink

then. Yet hero ho was thinking only
of u woman's comfort. Ills illsui.il

of absurd delUht at the thought that
he would lima nn opportunity of speak

that Jostled lu his brain when his life
