The lesult of it was that, after an
lioui's intenlew, I left the olllce of the
Vnlvetse under an engagement to pto
ceed to Cuba, on board a small steamer
that was pthately chatteted for the
coin eyance of waillke stoies, to the rev
olutlonaiy party In tlio island In other
woids, a lllibuster. I could have
wished for nothing better at the mo
ment. As I have said alteady, I was.
young, and, as I hae admitted, I was
a little hot blooded. The expedition
had all tho chatms of noelty and ad
ventute to lecommend It. I was to be
"well paid for undertaking It, and It
would at least gl e me a chance of pos
sibly being once more In llaana, and
of pajlng another Islt to the white
house w hich in imagination I had seen
glistening among the trees.
As I left the ofllce that afternoon, I
seemed to mjbelf to walk on air. The
daj chanced to be a dull one, jet I felt
the warmth of a tropical tunshlne In
my blood. I had really no time for
di earning, however, an the oppottunltv
was one that might not soon occur
again, and I had to be leady to sail that
vei y night. Fortunately my o n af
falts lequited but little artanglng. To
collect and pack a few' necessailes of
my own, and to putchaso a few that
were likely to be needed on such an ex
pedition, could easily bo accomplished,
een In the short time at my disposal.
Before nine o'clock, the hour named
by my ftiend, the editor, I tound mj

as I passed down the echoing sidewalk,
that this was tot tunate, uud I found
myself glancing suspiciously ftom side
to side, as I went. Mote than once I
felt Inclined to laugh at myself, us I
lecognlzed how thotoughly I had en
toted Into the spirit of the patt, and,
even hete in this gteat Ameilcun city,
was reheat sing the tole of u conspita
tor against the authorities In Cuba.
I emerged ftom the narrow stieet at
last, and could see the masts of ves
sels looming up darkly In front, while I
caught a glimpse of datk water be
tween, that moved slowly without a
sound In the shadow. I advanced a
few steps, peeling Into the darkness

A glimmering light from one of tho
vessels moored alongside was the only
thing that suggested life, and I was In
the veiy act of debating whether I
ought, to ventute on an Inquiry there,
when my ear caught the sound of a
footstep. It waB light and rapid, yet
not loud the footstep, I thought to my

I could sec his shadowy flguio dis
engage Itself ft otn tho blacker shadows
of the houses and come tow aid me
nctoss the open gtound. I had little
doubt that his quick ces had been me,
even befoie I made him out, fot he came
dltectly tow aid me without any ap
peal ancc of hesitation. I waited till he
came quite near befoio making tinv
lgn, and it was not until he was within
a nid or two that I spoke.
"Can vou tell me," I said In a low
tone, "whethu httls Is Iienson's whatf I"
"Well, sttanget," he said, pleasantly,
"they tell me that's tho name, but I
never was Iteie In mj life befote half an
houi ago m self."
Ills oiio was soft and almost mu
sical, and he spoke v-lth a slight dtawl,

then I said. "I was looking foi Ben-

ho btoke In quickly. "I thought as
much. They told mo half-past tight,
and I've kept the boat waiting till I
was tlted. Come along now," he con
tinued) "thete's no time to lose The
moon will be up in two bouts; and we
must be well under way before that.
If wo mean to dtop down without too
many ejeb on our movements."
There was something heaity een In
the low tone In which he spoke, and I
followed him leadily along the dusky
wharf. Looking oer, I saw what
seemed to be a steam launch lying
alongside a small flight of steps that
went down neatly to the watet, al
though. Judging by the number of
steps that wete bate, the tide appealed
to be low. My companion whistled
twice, and then, taking my ttavellng
bag ftom me, said, good naturedly:
"You'll want all the sea legs jou'e
got going down here in the dutk, so
jou'd better let me have this" I ac
cepted his offer, and managed to find
my way down the slippeiy stalls, and
on board the little ctaft which sunjed
gentlj' up and down at the bottom.
There seemed to be soveial seamen on
boatd, besides a heap of boxes and
pat eels which I took to be ptoslslons,
but my. conductor quickly cleared ,i
seat for me, nnd In another minute
our fastenings had been quietly cast
off, and the gutgllng splash of the
sciew told me that I had actually
stat ted on my adentute.
I leaned back and watched the misty
shote, 'with' its molng dlotama of
shadowy masts and mi sterious out
lines of w hatves and hulls, thiourjh
which there twinkled points of light,
surtounded by halos of mist. Once
faltly off, however, our little ctaft
went well, and the shote, with its
ghostly masts and firefly sparkles, .slid
past us lapidly. Now ond then a es
sel at anchor In the stteatn loomed up
with stattllng suddenness out of the
mist, and then as quickly melted In
the misty daikness behind. It was a

suddenly something dark rope out of
the water nhead of us, and my com
panion, who had been steerlntr, gae
the ordei to slacken speed. In anoth
er minute we wete lloatlng quietly un
der the lie of a Bteamei, from the decks
of which lights Hashed out through the
mist, and sounds of acthe wotk rose
with a hunt Into the dnikness. Tho
man at out bow had caught with n
bout hook nt something, and our
lutinch swung close alongside, whore n
tope laddet hung dangling ft otn the
bulwutk o et head.
"Mow, then, sit, hoio jou nte at last,"
oilalmtd my companion, cheet fully,
laying hold of the swinging ladder to
steady It as he spoke. ''I'll btlng jour
traps aboatd In a minute. Up jou go!"
I gt nsped tho unsteady inddei, nnd, find
ing It easier than it looked, 1 leached
tho deik In a moment. The scene that
met my ejes wns an animated one
There wete plenty of lights, though
none above the level of the bulwarks
and men wete huriylng to and fro, tat
tj Insr londu on their shouldcts. It took
some seconds to glow accustomed to
the light, but as soon as I did so, 1 saw
that goods wete being ttansfeiicd to
out deck ftom that of another steamer
which lay alongside Thete was no
wnnt of hands to do the wotk, and een
bj the inlslj light that (lashed on them
ft otn the deck lautetns, I thought they
looked et- unlike the otdlnaiy type of
seamen or dock labotets I wutched
them with Intel est fot a minute, from
whole I stood by tho buluaik, and, as I
looked, 1 could see that tiled tubk was
completed Tho men, when they had
laid own their last loads, gatheted In
gioups and petted oer the bulwaik at
the vessel alongside. Oiders wore given
in a hoaise, low tone; lopes wete
loosened and let go; and In another mo
ment I could see the shadow y masts and
smokestack glide quietly away Into the
daikness It was with a hudden stait
that I noticed that the gioups of men
who had been earning the goods on
boaul had not left with the tendet.
Tlteie weie at least thlrtj ot lotty of
them, and thej ceitalnly weie not sall
ois. I looked caerlj at them across
the deck; they were all alike in one re
spect evetj one of them seemed to
hae black halt and the ees of evety
man of them seemed to Hash black In
the light of the lanterns.
"Come, along, sir, and I'll show j'ou
j out beitli; it s no so much of a place,
but its tho best we can do, and It
won't be fot long" I followed my late
companion down a naitow companion
staiicase Into a small, dingy saloon, and
thence Into a ety small and still din
gier sleeping betth, whete he left me.
Thete was nothing to ntttact ot detain
me thete so 1 boon found my way to the
deck again. As 1 stepped out, I telt
tho sciew make its tuin, and I knew
that we wete off. I glanced atotind in
the daikness Onl a single lantern
now gllmmeted on the deck, but even
without It I could make out the genetal
outlines Whete wete the men I had
left there not five minutes befote." A

We wish we could make
everybody believe that
promptness is prevention;
that there should be no de
lay when you are losing flesh
and when you are pale, espec
ially if a cough be present.
The continued use of Scott's
Emulsion in the early stages of
lung affections does prevent
the development of Con
sumption. Your doctor will
tell you this is true and we
state it without wishing to
make any false claims or
false promises. Free book
tells more on the subject.
