but Klsle, baring extracted such In
formation ns I'rascuelo possessed, was
bent on adding to her store of knowl
edge. Incidentally sho meant to widen
the doctor's views.
"Why hao jou taken to lecturing
me?" she nsked. with a simple direct
ness which Chrlstobal was not slow
to prollt by.
"Ilccnusp, though old enough to bo
your father, I liavo uot yet reached
years of discretion."

"You uro pleased to be severe."
"Xo; It Is the last privilege of dan

we plumb tlio depths of absurdity
when wo contest the right of nuy wo

Klslo vvns spciklng without heat
Sho might hare been reasoning somo
disputed point In ethics. Thu Span
iard was obviously thrown off bis
"You seem to demand an explana
tion," he said, with somo warmth
"Well, you shall have It. I am not a
man to tllnch from the disagreeable, t
admit n sort of Impression, I might al
most descrlbo It as a conviction, that
Captain Courtenay's manner toward
you betokens a growing admiration."
"This Is the wildest folly," cried
r.lnlc In bewilderment "I I cannot
Imiglne whit put such a notion Into

"Lit me r.t least hy claim to n spe

no fifty excellent reasons why our
young and good looking commander
Uiould Le drawn to you, nor can I urgo

"Hut ho Is alrcndy engaged to an
other woman, so my ono reason Is
worth more than nil your fifty."
"Ah, can that really bo bo?"
Thu teusu eagerness In his .olce
might hae warned her were It not
that she was shocked by the bitterness
which welled up In her heart Sho
was amazed by this Introspective
glimpse, it alarmed her, Sho must
couv-luco herself at all costs that sho
bad spoken truly.
Although tho evidence sho tendered
wns of dubious value, sho stroTO to ad
vance her argument further.
"I, have prized our friendship great
ly. Dr. Chrlstobal," she said, speaking
with a calm dcllbcratcncss that rang
lufllow lu her own cars, "so greatly
that I am compelled to utter this pro
test. Now, to end n distasteful con
troversy let mo tell you what I know
to bo true. When tho ship wns strand

known as 'the pup.' "
Ills allusion to the dog by name re
called "Joce the Winebag." but Elsie
thought she would tetalii that tin;

present So she simply said:
"You will explain to me my part of
tho undertaking, of course?"
"Certainly. You must first correct
tho Index error. Then you subtract
the dip and the refraction In altitude,

nautical almanac and add the parallax.
Do yon follow mo?"
"Perfectly. It sounds tho easiest

remarks of tho admiralty when they
sco tho result"
"I am Interested In navigation to
the slight extent possible to a mero
yachtsman. May I Join you?'' Inter
"Oh, jesl" said tho captain offhand
edly. Ulslo repressed the smile on her lips.
Did tho worthy doctor fear develop
ments If this harmless mapmaklng
progressed In his absence? She Im
agined, too, that Courtenay's acqui
escence In Chrlstobnl's dcslro to bo
present wns not wholly In accordance
with his Innermost wish. Sho prompt
ly crushed that dangerous fancy. The
captain was only seeking for some ex
cuso to take Iter nway from tho rough
work of rigging tho extra awnings.
How odd thnt tho other thought should
havo cropped up first!
"You still think tho Kansas will win
clear of her dlfllctlltlcs?" sho Bald
rather hurriedly. "After all, the ship's
safety Is essoutlal to jour uunej."

"And the lndlnus?"
"I leave them out of my reckoning
What else can 1 do?"
"Kill 'cm," snld Tollemache. "
Courtenay glanced sharply nt his fel
low countryman. lie disliked these
references to tho Alaculof bogy In
"Wo have dynamite aboard," said
Tollemache. "Why not construct n
couple of Infernal machines which
could bo fitcd by pulling n string nnd
let them drift toward the canoes when
the Indians are near enough?"
"It Is worth trying," was Courte
nay's brief comment, though he snw
Inter that lollemachc's suggestion was
very useful one.
Elsie's first task was to prepare a
large scale drawing of the southern
part of Hanover Island as let forth In
admirably chart No. 1X17 (sbcc,t 2,
1'atagonta). which Is the only trust
north lecord available for shlpmas
tcrs using the outer passage between
the gulf of Tcnas and tho strait of Ma
gellan. It was a slmjilo matter to fill
In the few contours given. The neigh
boring small islands were shown la
reasonable detail, .but the whole west
ern co ist ol Hanover Island Itself con
sisted of a dotted line and n solitary
peak, Stokes mountain, tho height of
which could bo estimated and Its) po
sition triangulated from tbo sea. Ev.cn
Collection strait, on tho north, and
tho San Dins channel, on the south,
wcro marked In tlioso significant dot
ted lines. Tho coast was practically
unknown to civilized man.
It wns borne In oti the girl wbtlo the
worked thnt the chief marvel In bet
present condition was the triumph ot
science over nature In its most hostile
mood The Kanas bonstcd all the
comforts aud luxuries of a well clip
ped hotel. Seated at tho same table
as herself was a skillful sailor, using
logarithms, secants nnd cosecants, po
lar distances and hour angles as If he
were In somo university class room.
She stole n glance at Courtenay. lie
was so keenly engaged on the business
In hand, so bent on achieving accuracy
In his figures, that sho chldcd herself
for her reverie. Then sho wondered
It ho ever gave a thought to thnt prom
ised wife of his, who must soon suffer
tho agony of know Ing that the Kansas
Elsie was sufficiently .well acquaint
ed with shipping to realize the sensa
tion that would be created by the first
cablegram from Coronel announcing
tho nonappearance of the steamer In
the strait The Valparaiso uowspa
pcrs would be full of surmises as to
the vessel's fate. They would publish
full details of tho valuable cargo and
would give a list of the passengers and
officers. Ah! Yentana would learn
then. If he had nut heard It earlier,
that she wns on board. And he alono
would understand the true reason of
her flight from Chile. Her checks
flushed, and she applied herself more
closely to the chart sho was copying,
hhe bad left a good deal unsaid In her
brief statement thnt morning. How
strange, bow utterly unexpected. It
was that Vchtana's name should fall
from Courtenay's lips Courtenay of
all mcu living! And what did tsobel
mean during that Inst dreadful scene
ere she wns carried away to tho boat
by screaming In tier frenzy that Vcn
tana had taken "au ample vengennco?"
Vengeance for what? Had tbo half
breed dared to make the snmo pro
posal to the rich and highly placed
Isohcl Hnrlng that ho did not scruplo
to put boforo the needy governess?
Surely that was Impossible, Thero
were limits even to his audacity
"Well, how Is. my chief hydrogrn-
Courtenay's cheery volco banished
tho unwelcome specter of Vcntana.
"I do believe you were day dream
ing," said the captain, with a surpris
ed smile. "A penny for your thoughts."
''I don't think you ran pay me." sho
retorted, hoping to cover her confusion.
"Won't you accept Chilean curren
cy?" "Not on tbo high sens."
"But you aro on dry land, rienso

Courtenay took his binoculars and
went on to tho bridge. He called out
tbo apparent dlstanco ot each land
mark ho could distinguish, described
It and gave Its true bearing". In the
result Klslo found sho had prepared a
clear and fairly accurate chart of tho
bay and Its headlands, while the po
sition ot the distant range of moun
tains was marked with tolerable preci
sion, nut Courtenay was tar from

"Hut I do mean to peep a little farther

"In what way?" asked Elsie.
"Hy utilizing the riuioo. A mile or

then In -.- ric fori extent or tho Day.
I must get you totsound Suarcz ns to

"I hope yon will do nothing of tho

"Why? Do you think tho canoe un

"Oh. Hip Indians again! I shall run

Elslo felt Chrlstobnl's critical eye on
bcr. Sho was shading tho outlines of
tbo map and trustod that bcr bead was
bent sufficiently to bide the telltnlo
color which leaped to her face. But
Courtenay wished to hear more of this,
"I bopo you do not credit everything
my chief officer says about me." be
Bald, glancing over bcr shoulder at the
drawing, "nor about himself," be add
ed. as sho was too busy to look up. "To
my knowlcdgo bo bail refused the com
mand of two ships sluco we both .Join

"Homo orders!" Rcrled Boyle, who
wns certainly licyqnd himself. Proba

You stand on what I told you. Miss

Courtenay glanced at tho chronome
ter. ' '
"I must bo off." bo announced. "Tollo
mache may need some help with his
bombs,,., nnd tuoso Chileans require
looking nf ter."
Chrlstobal, too. quitted tho chart
room to visit bis patients. Ue had said
vory little whllo bo sat tbcrcvand Elslo
did not know whether to laugh or cry
ot tho tragic comedy of bcr environ
ment hhe was only certain of one
tblng-shu would llko to box Boyle's
ears. She wns completely at a loss to
account for his persistent efforts to
drag lu references to their prior con
vcrsatlon. She dared not catechise
him. That would be piling up more
difficulties for the future. But what
possessed blm to blurt out such em
barrassing details lu toe presence ot
tho two men whom she roost wished to
remain la Iguoiance of them?
She peeped at Boyle sideways. Ills
eyes wore closed, the cigar was be
tween bis teeth, nnd be had a broad
grin on his face. Sho could not guess
that tho once taciturn chief officer of
tho Kansas wns saying to himself
"My godfather, bow rills glared!
Thero will bo trouble on this ship
about a woman before Ions or I'm
Dutchman. An' didn't tbo skipper rise
at tbo fly too! Huh!"
A little later us Elslo passed along
tbi promenade deck she saw Courte
nay, Tolleniacho and Walker deep In
consultation. They were arranging a
percussion fuse of fulminating mer
cury, Whllo Bbo was watching; them
Walker dropped a broken furnaco bar
on top of n small package placed on
au Iron block. Instantly thero was a
sbart report, nnd Joey, who was nu
Interested observer, jumped several
feet The men laughed, and Bbo heard
' That is tho right proportion of ful

Something roso In her throat, somo
wave of emotion which threatened her
splendid sorcnlty, Sho ran rather than
walked to her cabin, flung herself on
tho bed aud sobbed plteously, It bad
to come, this tempest of toars. When
desperate odds demanded unflinching
couraga she faced tbcm dry eyed, with
steadfast heart. But "today In tbo
bright sunshine nnd apparent security
of tho Bhlp sinister death shadows tor
tured her Into rebellion. Sho did not
stop t ask herself why sho wept !to
Ing a woman, she 'yielded to the gust,
12l,..",j!e'lJt lit' t-'i!?i)i.wJt)iJie. Bud-
ilenness of n summer shower, she smll
ed through tho vanishing tears. Her
first concern was that none should bo
aware ot her wenkners.
"How stupid ot me!" she murmured.
"What would tho men think If they
knew I broke down In this fashion?"
She looked lu a mirror- In tbo clear
light without any ono could see she
had been crying, nnd thero wns so
much work to bo dono thnt sho did not
wish to remain In her stateroom until
all tokens of tho storm had passed.
Sho searched for a powder puff and
wns nt a loss to discover Its where
abouts until Bbo recollected that tho
doctor hnd borrowed It for the use of
n man slightly scalded when his own
supply of antiseptic powder was ex
hausted. So sho went Into Isobcl's
room, entering It for tbo first time
since the Kansas struck on tho shoal.
Tho two cabins communicated, as Mr.
Baring hnd gono to the expense of hav
ing a door broken through the parti
tion for the girls' uso during the voy
age. If Elsie had not already given way
to tears she must have faltered now at
tho sight of her friend's belongings
strewed In coufuslon oo- tho floor,
chairs, dressing tnblo nnd beet lsobel
possessed n gold mounted drvsir.g case
the slzo ot an ordinary portmanteau.
It held an assortment ot pretty nnd
mostly useless knlckknncLs, nnd they
hnd all been tumbled out lu a frantic
hurry. At first Elsie flinched from fur
ther scriltlnj', but common sens' told
her that this despondent mood must
be fought. She dropped to her knees,
(ound a mother-of-pearl powder box
and picked up other scattered articles
and replaced tbcm In tbo dressing
case. To accomplish this It was neces
sary to rcarranga various trays and
drawers. Portraits of girl friends, In
cluding her own, and of men unknown
to her, letters, memoranda and other
ilouyuents were thrown about In d a
order. All these sho put back In their
receptacles, wondcrlnghe whllo wLat
motive had led Isobclto mako such
frenzied search, for some, special object
that she cared not a Jot what becam
of tho remaining articles. .
Yet w bo could account for the frenzy
of that terrible honr when tbo cnptaln
announced tho ship's danger? Even
Courtenay himself, she remembered,
bad emptied n locker In n rapid bunt
for the dog's coat, but bo hnd laugh
lagly explained his haste later when
some chanco rcfcrcnco was made to
his soaked garments.
Any thing wns explicable In tbo light
of pnuic. She grthored up n skirt and
somo blouses, locked the dressing case,
put tho key In her purso aud quitted
the room with n heavy heart, for the
handling of her friend's treasures hnd
brought sad memories.
Passing Into the deck corridor, she
heard the captain's voice, apparently
at a considerable dlstnucc. Two hun
dred jards nway fiom tbc ship Cour
tenay nnd Tollemache were anchoring

ncss of observation, no sooner had
Elsie glanced over the hide of the ship
than be waved n hand to bcr.
She sighed, A bitter thought peeped
up in her that be wns perhaps a trifle
cniclcss lu showing her these little at
tentions. She wished, he would speak
to her of that other gill who awaited
blm lu England. A pleasant state of
confidence would be established then.
