Suddenly his volco failed lilni.
Though the words enmo fluently, his
long disused vocal chords were un
equal to tho strain of measured speech.
Ho asked hoarsely for some hot wa

him In tho salon he was asleep and
changed so greatly by tho removal of
pigments from bis face that It wns
difficult to regard hlin as tho same be

Tollemacbe, who had fought an off
shoot trlbo of tbeso sauio Indians;
Chrlstobal, who vouched for tho Ar
gentlno accent, nnd Elsie, who seemed
to havo read such ram book of Irani
as dealt with that llttlo known part of ,
the world, lore out tbo reasonableness
of bis statements. The only Individual
on board who regarded him with sus
picion was Joey, and even Joey was
imusiicu wucn niiarcz bad washed him
self. It was daylight again, a dawn of
dense mist, without wind or ball, ero
any mcmlicr of the ship's company
thought of sleep. Then nislo went to
bcr cabin and dreamed of n river of
molten gold, down which sho was com
pelled to sail In n cockleshell boat,
whllo fantastic monsters swam around
and eyed her suspiciously.
When nt last sho awoko after a few
hours of less exciting slumber she
camo out on deck to tlnd tho sun shin
In? on a fairyland of green and blue
and dlnmond white, with gaunt gray
rocks and groves of copper beeches to
framo tho picture. There was no pil
lar of smoke on the lower hills to hear
silent testimony to the presence of tho
Indians, but tho canoo lying alongside
told her that tho previous night's

and a man Whom sho did not recognize
. a man with closely cropped gray
hair and n deeply lined, weather tan
ned face from which n pair of sunken,
flashing eyes looked kindly at her
aid In Spanish:
"Good morning, scnorlta. I hope I
did not startlo you when I came
aboard. And I said things I should
not have said In tho presence of n
lady. Hut, believe me, senorlta, I was
drunk with delight."
EI.8IK hnd slept long and sound
ly. Sho found herself Itf a
new world of sunshine and
calm. Her brain had been
cleared, restored to tho normal by re
freshing sleep. With n more ucthe
perception of tho curious difficulties
which beset tbo Kansas enmo a feeling
akin to despair. Tbo brightness of na
ture scried rnlher to contcrt tho ship
Into n prison. Storm nnd stress, wheth

foes who lurked unseen on tbo neigh

Impregnable. Hut tho knowledge of
tho vessel's helplessness and of tho
equally desperato bnzard which beset
her inmates was rendered only more
poignant by tho smiling aspect of land
Hut sho wns hungry, and that was a
salng sign. Sho guessed that many
of tho men after mounting watch until
broad daylight wcro asleep. Others
woro at work below, as was testified
by a subdued sound of hammering,
with the sharp clink of metal against

herself why the dog bad taken such n

She blushed n little as she thought:
"It may tie that I resen-.b'e th lady

that he didn't cure. What rould any

"Why do jou consider Captain Cour
tenay so fortunate?" asked Elsie, flush
lug somewhat nt tho guile which lay
behind the question.
"Huh!" snorted Boyle, nmnzed that
ecn n slip of a girl should need In
forming on so obvious a fact. "Don't
you call It luck to he given command

Miss Maxwell. S'posln' Courteuny was

Elslo turned bcr face aside when be
mentioned Isobel. It seemed to her

trivialities when tne girl wno. naci
commenced this unlucky voyng'o In
such high spirits was lying beneath
that grim sen behind the smiling head
land. Yet she knew that Boylo meant
no harm by his chatter. He was weak
from his wound nnd perhaps a trifle
light headed as tho result of being
brought from tho stuffy salon to the
airy and sunlit chnrt room. So sho
crushed a sorrow that wns unavailing
nnd strove to put tho sailor at his
"I do not find any harm In your re
mark," she said resolutely. "Were It
possible I should have Iwen very pleas
ed to see Miss Baring married to a
man of strong chnrncter like Captain
Courtenny. By the way, who Is keep
ing wntch on deck?"
"Tho doctor was here w lib me until
a few minutes ago. Then the skipper
telephoned him. I guess thero Is somo
one on tho lookout, but you might Just
cast an eye shoreward. I'm not sup
posed to move yet."
Ho wriggled uneasily In his chair,
for the spirit was willing, but Elsie
made blm He quiet. Sho rearranged
his pillow nnd stepped on to the bridge.
By walking from port to starboard
and traversing the short length of tho
spar deck she could command n view
of the bay and of most ports of the
ship. She beard the dog scuttling down
the companion. On reaching tbc nftcr
rail she saw tbo captain engaged In
earnest, low toned cotvrersatlon with
Tollemacbe and Walker. Tbey wera
standing on the main deck near tho
engine room door nnd examining some
thing which resembled n lump of coal.
She saw the engineer tako three simi
lar lumps from n pocket.
Chrlstobal appeared, carrying a buck
et of water, Into which the lumps were
placed by Walker, who handled tbem
very gingerly. After a slight delay
be began to crumble one In his fingers,
still keeping It In the water, until
finally be drew forth what Elsie rec
ognized at once ns n stick of dynamite.
Though it wns blackened by contnet
with the coal, she was certain of Its
rent nature. She had visited n great
many mines, nnd the officials always
scared the ladles of the party by tell
ing them what would happeiulf tbo ex
plosives wcro to blow up. She had
even seen dynamite placed In tho
sun to dry, ns It Is very susceptible to
moisture, and she wondered, nntumlly
enough, why such a dangerous agent
should bo hidden In or disguised ns a
pleco of coal.
Sho thought that tho men should bo
made nwaro of her presence, so she
leaned over and said;
"May 1 ask what you four nro plot
ting?" They looked nt her'ln surprise. Tbey
were so engrossed In their discovery
'' which bunker uyi the coal placed
uhtch ti shipped at Wilparaliof "
that they hnd eyes for nothing else.
Walker straightway plunged tho sou
Boge Bhaped grny stick Into tho water
"Whnt aro you doing with that dyna
mite?" she demanded. "Do you Intend
to visit Scnor Suarcz's mines? If bo,
please tako me. I am very poor." '
It was Courtenay who answered.
"Arc you alone?" bo asked.
"Mr. Boyle Is In the chart house."
"I know, but Is auy ono else up
Then wo shall Join you nt once."
Notwithstanding tho serious dementi
or of the men, Elslo wns far from
guessing what had happened. Hut she
was soon enlightened.
"In which bunker wns tbc coal placed
which we shipped at Valparaiso?"
Courtenay asked Iloyle.
"In tho forrnrd cross bunker," was
the instant answer.
"And tbnt was tho first coal used In
Tbo captain's tono was official, ex
ceedingly so, nnd tho chief officer took
tho cno from his superior In rank.
"Did wo get up steam with it?"
"There might bnve been n hundred
weight or two lying loose in tho stoke
hold, but for all practical purposes we
have used nothing but tho Valparaiso
bunker since we left port."
"The rest of our coal wns shipped nt
"You bear? It Is exactly as I havo

tho others. "1 must explain to yon,

This morning. nftiT a careful scrutiny,
we came ncrots a number of lumps of
coal cleverly constructed nut of small
pieces glued together. In the center of
each lump wns a stlckvbf dynamite,
protected by nn nsls'stils wrapper. It
was undoubtedly Hie Intent of somo
miscreant tbnt a number of these
lumps should bo fed intu the furnaces.
This actually occurred, as wc know,
but by tho mercy of Providence the
ship did not experience the full power
of the explosion or she must have sunk
like n stone."
"Huh." grunted Iloyle. "Who holds

"Worth a quarter of a million ster

"Huh It's n lot of money."
There was n momentary silence.
Elsie's eyes grew larger, nnd she be
rnmo rather pale. As was her habit
when puzzled. hc placed n finger on
her lips. Chrlstobal noted her action.
Indeed, he missed fen of bcr charac
teristic habits or expressions. n
"1 think you nre quite right. Miss
Maxwell." be said. "This Is one of the

"There nre some Instances in which

considerable fixed sum, but the lack of

end of January will bate far reaching
consequences In n fight ngnlust the bull

Baring mnde this heavy shipment."
"Those consequences could be fore
seen nnd discounted," put In Tulle
"Exactly, But by whom by the
man who sent bis only daughter ns n
passenger on this vessel?"
lit cry ono scouted that notion. But
Tollemacbe, though disavowing any
thought of Mr. Baring as n party to
tho scheme, stuck to his guns.
"Somebody will make n pile when
tho Kansas Is reported missing," he
"Tho Insurnnco money will not bo
paid for n long time," Courtenny ex
plained. "No, but tbo copper market will re
"Then tho process Ins commenced
already. Tbo Kansas should have been

The news that she has not nrrlved will

There will lie terrific excitement nt
Lloyd's when thnt lit-comcs "known.
By the way, does any ono here Know
n mnn named Ventnnn?"
"It Is n name common enough In
Chile," said Chrlstobal.
"If you menn Scnor Pedro Ventnnn,
who Is nssoclated with Mr. Baring In
mining matters, I am acquainted with
him," snld Elsie.
They all looked at her, and some of
them wondered perhaps why her smil
ing eyes had Inst their mirth. Yet
there wns nothing unreasonable In tbo
mere fact tbnt n certntn Chilean nam
ed Ventnnn, who hnd business rela
tions with Mr. Ilnrlng, should make
tho acquaintance nf Isobel Baring's
friend. As quickly as It had arisen
the feeling of strangeness passed.
Courtenny even laughed. Elslo as
the Jonah of tho ship wns n quaint
"I mentioned Vcntnna because I was
told be took somo part of tho insur
nnco nn his own account," bo explain
ed. "But he was n member of Baring's
copper syndicate and Indeed was spo
ken of as a mining engineer of high
repute. Believe me, I was not Jump
ing to conclusions on tbnt account."
"1 know him to be n very bad man,"
said Elslo slowly. Her face was whlto
and her eyes downcast. It- was ctl
dent thnt tho sudden introduction nf
Vcntnna's personality was distressing
to her, but Courtenay, preoccupied
with the dnstardly attempt made to
sink bis ship, did not obscrvo this fea
ture of a peculiar discussion.
"Bndl In what sense, Miss Max
well?" ho asked uiiguiirdodlj'.
"In tho most loathsome sense. He Is
evil minded, tlclnus, altogether detesta
ble If Mr. Baring Know bis charac
ter as I know It, Ventnnn would not be
allowed to enter his oftlcc."
"Pedro Ycntiiun?" Interrupted Chrls
tobal. "Is bo a 'half caste, n tall, brown
skinned limn, who affects nn American
drawl when ho speaks English n man
prominent In Santiago society nnd In
mining circles generally?''
"Yes," said Elsie.
"That is odd, exceedingly so. I once
heard a rumor but perhaps It Is un
fair to mention It In this connection.
Yet It cannot hurt nuy one If 1 state
Hint Isobel Baring and be were well,
how shall I put It? nt any rnte, there
was a lively hummer hotel sort of at
tachment between them."
"Isobel has never told mo that," said
Elsie, nerving herself for a personal
disclosure which was obviously dis
agreeable. "I own a small ranch near
Qulllota, and as there was a-cbauco of
copper being located thero Mr. Baring
advised mo to employ Ventnnn ns uii
expert prospector. Indeed, Mr. Baring
himself sent Vcntnu.i to examine tho
property and report on It. Ho came to
see me. He told mo thero wcro nn
minerals of taluu nn my land, but 1
could not or free uijsolt from blm aft

from blm now."
Sho uttered the concluding words
with n genuine Indignation which
forthwith evaporated in Its uncoil

Somo thero wero to whom tbo pnsslng
of tho years would mean no more In

of tbo ship's company, were probably
hidden by the sanio elernnl silence.
The Inst sight they bad nf tbem was a
dim llon of boats rushing Into n
clnos'of nngry rcis nnd sheeted spray.
But Courtenay would have none of
these mournful memories. "Isn't that
