have broken many n man's nerve, but
Courtcnay was not cast In n mold to lio

of tho breakdown, liven beforo ho dis

what evil chnnco had contrived to crip
ple the cngtno nt such n moment In
tho worst posslblo place on the map.
"Joey," ho said suddenly, his
thoughts reverting to a chnnco remark
made to him In Valparaiso by Isobcl's
father, "what did Sir. Raring mean by
saying thcro wns a difficulty about tho

"Iloylo will recover," ho said when

Chrlstobal wnrd n hand toward the
external void. He was not sailor
enough to rcallzo tho chango In tho
"That Is good news," said Courtcnay.
"I thought you would llko to know.
How nro things up hero?"
"Heller. Tho barometer has risen an
Inch In less than two hours. Possibly
nearness to tho land has some effect,
but wind and sen nro subsiding."
"You surprise me, yet that Is noth

"Wo aro making nbout six knots, I

"I was cross examining Joey on that

"Shorn, Hutu and Japhctlil Hxploslvo

gunpowder or that sort of thing?"
".Something of tho kind. That Is

"Nothing, I shall lio ready for a
srjimro meal when I am nblo to como

Chrlstobal smiled. Though ho wns a
brnvo man, ho thought such persistent
optimism wns out of place. Neverthe
less ho could cmulato.Courtenay's cool
ness, "Lot mo know when you nro ready.
I am nn excellent cook," ho snld.
Then tho captain of tho Kansas re
sumed his smoking nnd humming, with
occasional glances nt tho clock aud
tho compass and tho barometer. At '1
o'clock ho felt tho ship slipping from
under tho wheel, Tho compass show
ed that alio was heading a couplo of
points eastward. Ho helped her and
telephoned lnstnnlly to Walker:
"Go forward nnd try If you cnn
mnko out anything, Iteport to mo
"Ayo, aye, sir!" camo tho reply, and
anon Walker appeared.
"It's main thick ahead, sir, but I
think wc-aw passln' an Island to port,"
"I thought so, Vou had better re

Wnikor Imagined that tho skipper
wns re idy for n chat.
"Things are In n dwcadful mess be.

"Well, that must wnlt. Don't tnlk.
Keep a sharp lookout."
The engineer could not guess that
tho captain's pulse wns lientlng a trllle
more rapidly with n certnln elation
They were undoubtedly pissing White
Horse Island. It rce:iled Its presence
by deflecting the tremendous sea river
which fenlcd the Kansas onward nt
such n rate. In fifteen or twenty min
utes Coiirtcmy eip'tied lo find Indica
tions of a moie iioitherly set of the
tide, nnd he wntched the compasi In
tenlly for the llrst sign rf thli relsvu
to the former course. If the ship cross
ed the current nro wny or the other
sho would certainly be driven ashore
on home otitlj Ing spur of the Island or
detached sunken reef: hence he must
actually guess his way, with some
thing of the nciiilrcd sense of the
blind, because the slight chant oof ulti
mate escape for tho ship and litv occti
pnnts rested wholly on the n- tiitplluti
thnt soma ocean byway wns i.-jilng
her to n deep water Inlet, win-p It
might be iosslhlo to drop tho imrlior.
In eighteen minutes nr thcrealMiits
the needle mined sllghUj Courtcnay
onco more nsslsted the ship with the
liolm. .She steadied heirelf. aud tho
compass pointed due northeast ngnln.
Walker, though an engineer, knew
enough of rnvlgntlnn to recogi l;i the
apparent liupnrslhllltv of the taptaln
being able to steer with nny ret'
knowledge of his surroundings. The
wheel twisting therefore savored of
magic. Hut his orders wcio to loo'
ahead, nnd he obeyed.
Soon he thought he could discern nn
Irregular pink iresrriit. with tho con
cave side downward, somewhere In the
blackness Iwjoud tho bows. Speedily
It wns Joined by two' others cipuilly
Irregnlar and someTwhnt lower.
"Captain, d'ye see joii?" he asked In
n olcc tremulous with nwe.
"Vos. Thnt Is the sun Just cntchlng
the summits of snow topped hills. II
not only foretells tho dawn, but Is a
sign of fine weather. Thcro are no
clouds over tho land or wo should not
seo the (teaks."
Kro long n silver gray light began to
dispel tho gloom. Tho two silent
wntchcrs first saw It overhead, and the
vast domo of day swiftly widened
over tho vexed sea. Tho aftermath of
tins storm spread n low. denso clonk of
vnpor nil round. Tho w hid had fallen
so greatly that they could hear the
song of tho rigging. Soon they could
distinguish the outlines of the heavy
rollers near nt hand, and Courteuay
believed that tho ship In her passage
encountered In tho wntcr seor.il nar
row bands of n bright red color. If
this were so, ho knew that the phe
nomenon was caused by tho prawn
llko crustncea which sailors call
"whalo food," a sure sign of deep wa
ter close to land and, further, nn Indl
rntlon thnt tho current was still flow
ing strongly, whllo tho force of tho
sen must have, been broken many miles
Suddenly ho turned to Walker.
"Do you think you could shin up to
tho masthead?" he asked.
"I used to lio ohlo to climb a bit, sir."
"Well, try tho foremast. Up thcro I
nm fairly certain you can sco over this
bank of mist. Don't get Into trouble.
Como back If jou feci you can't man
ngo It. If j on Miececd, tnko the liest
observations possible and-report."
Courlenny was becoming anxious
now. If ho dnred let go the wheel ho
would Imvo climbed tho mnst himself.
Walker het about his mission In a
biiElncsslIko manner. Ho threw off his
thick coat nnd boots nnd went for
ward. Halfway up tho mast thcro was
a lopo ladder for tho uso of tho sailors
when adjusting pullejs.
The lest of tlio Journey was not film
cult for an ntliletle man. nnd Walker
wns quickly an InillstliiU Ilgure In the
fog. Ho gained tho true I. nil light and
Instantly jelled something. Courtcnay
fancied ho said:
".My (lod, wc-nh on the w neks',"
Whntoer It was. Walker did not
wait, but slid downward with such
speed that It was fottuuato the rig
glug barred Ills progress.
And then, even while Courteuay was
shouting home explanation, a groit
black wall fciko out of the deep on (lit
port Ijow. It wns a pinnacle rock h'gli
as tho ship's masts, but only n few
feet wldo at sen lccl, ami thu Kansas
sped past this ugly monitor ns though
It v.ero n buoy In n well marked chan
nel. Courteuay heard tho sea breaking
against It. The ship could not hae
been nioru th.m sixty feet dlstnnt. n
little moiu than her own bemu, nnd ho
fully expected that shu would grind
against soino outlier In tho next in
stant. Hut tho Kansas Ii.nl a chat mod
life. Shu ran on unscathed mid seem
ed to bo traveling In smoother water
after this escape.
Wnlker's dark skin was the color of
parchment when ho reached tho chart
"Captain," ho said weiklj-, "I'll do
nwt wl' engines, but I'm no good at
this iMino. lint thing falily banged

"Did you sec land?" demanded Cour
tcnay lmperatlelj'. Ills spirits rose
Willi each of theso thrills. He felt that
It was ordained that his ship should
"Yes, sir. The-nw's hills, and big
ones, a long wny ahead, but I'm no'

FOHTI'Nn bus her cjcles, wheth
er for good or 111. The Knnsns,
having run tho gantlet of many
dangers, seemed to hae earn
ed nn npproUng smile from the Ilcklo
goddess. A slight but perceptible veer
ing of tho wind, combined with tho In
creasing power of tho sun's rays,
mept tlio ocean clear of Its storm
wraltbs Soon nftcr passing the pillar
rock Courtcnay thought ho could uiako
ont the unwavering outline of moun
tainous hrnd amid the gray mists. K
few minutes later the waves racing
alongside changed their leaden hue to
n steely glitter which told hlin the fog
wns dispersing. The nenrer blue of
the ocean carpet spread an ccr widen
ing circle until It merged Into lUd
green. Then, with startling sudden
ness, tho curtntn wns drnwn aside on
a pnnorama nt onco magnificent and
Almost without warning tho ship
was found to be entering the estuary
of a narrow fiord, daunt headlands
tnnedon a tltnnlc scale out of the solid
lock guarded the entrance and already
shut out the more dlstnnt coast line,
nehlnd theso llrst missive walls, c
erywhero ttnscnlnhlo and rising In sep
arate promontories to nltlludes of per
haps -100 feet, an Inner formication of
precipitous mountains flung lis gla
cier clad peaks licntcnwnrd to liu
menso heights heights which In that
region soared far above the snow Hue.
Hut If the crests of pcnl: upon peak
were clothed In white their bases woio
a garment of different texture. .Save
on the seaward terraces of stark rock,
with their tide marked base of weed
covered liowldcr, tho densest tcgetit
lion known to mankind Imposed ev
erywhere n first barrier to human prog
ress far more unconquerable than the
nvvesome regions U-jond. I'lue for
ests of extraordinary density cram
med each available yard of space un
til tho tree growth yielded perforce to
hardier Alplno moss nnd lichens. This
lower licit of deepest green rnhged
from WO to 1,000 feet In height, as
conditions were ndverso or favorable,
nnd waterfalls abounded.
Courtcuaj-, after an astounded glance
nt tho mngiiltudo and solemn grandeur
of tho "spectacle, had eyes for naught
n.ie the conformation of the channel.
Tho chnngo In the wind wns caused, ho
found, by the northerly headland thrust,
lug Its giant mnss n mile or more
westward of Its twin, hut ho ipilckly
dlscovered from the conformation of
tho land thnt tho latter wns really the
protecting capo of the luner wnterwny.
He reasoned, therefore, thnt tho dorp
water channel Mowed close to tho north
ern shore until It wns flung off by tho
relentless rocks to seek tho easier In
let behind the opposite point.
Ho did not know jet whether tho
ship wns entering some unknown strait
or tho mouth of n narrow landlocked
bay. If tho latter, the preseiuo of
the dlstnnt glaciers mid tho nearer tor
rents warned him of n posslhle bar on
which the Kansas might bo lost within
ilght of snfo anchorage. Not Inspired
guesswork now, but the skill of tho
pilot, wiu needed. This crossing thu
bar In broad daylight wns ns gient a
trial of nerve in Its way as the earlier
onwaid rush In the dark.
Wind and sen had abated so sensibly
that tho Pacific rollers raced on un
broken, nnd It wns no longer n super
human task to uiako one's voice heard
along tho deck.
So tho captain aroused Wnlker with
a sharp order:
"On nnd so If the donkey boiler bus
a good head of steam. Wo may hnin

both bowers ns well. If Tolleniniho
Is doing bis work proorly, go forward
and keep a sharp lookout for broken
water. Clear off tho tarpaulins, nnd
bo rendy to lower nwny tho Instant I
Wnlker, who had been gazing spell
bound nt tho majestic Inn en opening
up before tho ship, hurried on his er
rand. IIo found Tollemacho seated on
nn upturned bucket, In which the taci
turn ouo hud Just washed his face nnd
"Hnvo j-ou been It?" demanded
Walker gleefullj-, while his practiced
cjes took In tho state of tho gauges
as ho oierrau n number of oil, tups
with nimble fingers.
"Seen what?" asked Tollemacho
without removing his pipe.
"The land, my bonny lad. We ah
wunnln' wight In now,"
"We've been doing that for hours."
"Yes, but this Is dlff'went, Tbe'nw's

With this" rarthliiu shaft of humor
he t nnlslicd tow aid the forecastle,
whence the ubiquitous donkey Isiller
through one of Its long nriiis would
shoot forth the stockless anchors at
tlio touch of a lever. Tolleuiache, who
hid already glluip'ed Ihe coast, si roll
ed out on deck nnd bent well over tho
sldu hi older to look more directly
ahead. Ho could see ouo-half onlj- of
the view, but that sufllced.

Instantly sho ran tovvntd him, with

Courtenaj felt It would hurt her
were he to sinllo at her earnestness.
Hut he did say:
"Sure") It Is noto a cry rcjnarkabln
that I should do my best 16' safeguard

Sho run off, nnd Joey scampered by

"Hriunlile Is ittcful nt times," mur
mured Chrlstobal, watching Klsle un

"I wish now that poor lsobel llailug

Courtcnay wns about to say some

not blind to Ihe aspect of affairs which
Tollcinacho had suuiuiailzcd to pithily.
