it came at I ist so suddtnly that oen
to me who expected it the shock was
tPiiible. Thue was a sudden 1ar that,
foi the moment, involved ppij thing in
n common confusion. I clung with ft an
tic eneigy to tl.e staunchion and shut
mj eves. 1 could not close my pais,
however, to the wild confused yell that
niose funn the doomed vessel, In which
the cinsh and creak and snapping of
tlnibci and lion was hoiiibly mingled
with ciies of drspaltlng human beings,
and tho lleice, tilumphant scieim of
the stoim, and the sullen clash of the
nit re Hess sea. Even in that moment
ol tenor, I felt somebody giasp me bv
the 'ii m, and opening my bewildeied
c yes, I saw that it was Thompson.
"Come!" lie shouted, In a tone so
v. lid and slit HI, that I heard It above
all the pandemonium of sounds, and
the next moment I hnd allowed him to
diag me fiom the bulwnik to the lad
der which now swung loosely funn the
wiecked lemains of the bildge. I
clutched wildly n,t tho ghostlj -looking
lndder and held on. Anothet moment,
and something stiuck me; something
daik, ovei whelming nnd iiiesistlble. I

wild desire to cling with every eneigy
of soul and body to the frail suppott
to which I had tiansf erred my ginsp.
Theie was a hoarse loaiing sound In
my cms and brain, which gradually
died away Into silence.
I opened my eyes, and to my aston
ishment it was daylight once more. I
vvns lying on soft, white sand, on n
ehnrply sloping beach, and my head
was resting on the breast of a man who
lay stretched on the sand fast asleep,
with his dnik head pillowed on one of
his arms It was my comrade, Thomp
flon. 1 sat up unci looked around eag
eily. We weie quite alone. Ovei head,
the sky was coveied with a wild drift
of broken clouds that huulod along In
lagged masses, but where we lay it
was almost calm. Not twenty ynrds
fiom wheie we were, the water bioke
musically In little waves on the white
hand and moved a number of daik ob
jects that lose and fell on tho Eiitfnce
of the little bay. I tried to rise, but
found that my limbs were stiff, and
that I moved with dltllculty. The noise
I made woke my companion, who In
stantly sat up. When his eyes fell on
me, I noticed that his facn lighted up
jvith a look of quick relief, and he
mutteied something which sounded
like Spanish or Latin, though I could
not make out the vvoids. In another
moment, he had started to his feet and
come to my assistance. It all came
back to mo at once, as he laid his
giusp on my arm nearly the last sen
uation of which I had been conscious.
"The others" I gasped, looking nppeul
Ingly Into my companion's face. Ho
glanced quickly at the sea and made a
slight, but significant motion ot his

hnnd towatd the water, lly eyes fol
lowed the motion, nnd theie among
lloatlng timbers and bioken cases 1
saw a body.
Wo got that body ashore and buried It
In tht' soft sand, and then there was
nothing moi e that we could do. Coat
less, hatless, and shoeless, as we wete,
It was necessaiy that we should seek
foi food and shelter. Thompson said so,
iiikI it was so ev Ident that he was light,
that I ninde no demur and wo started.
The countiy seemed to bo familiar to
my comiade, and we soon found our
way fiom the secluded beach on which
vp had been thrown up, ovei a wooded
ridge, Into what had been a cultivated
countty, now dcseited by the Inhabi
tants. My companion explained that,
although within less than forty miles
of Havana Itself, It had been the scene
of a rebel raid two months befoie that.
It was evident that theie were not
many people of the superior classes left,
but by and by ve succeeded In getting
both food and shelter nt the house of nn
overseei, besides a good deal of syin
1 athy as shipwrecked sailois fiom the
negioes.
When, at last, wo staited to find our
way to the capital, wp had obtained
both shoes and hats, and, In the com so
ot our long two-days' tramp, we weie
foituinte enough to get substitutes
foi the coats wo had dlscauled. It was
mv comrndp who thought of an expla
nation of our appeal ance on the coast,
which he warned me was our only pass
poit to liberty, and from time to time
he lepeatt'd the story of the shlpvvieck
of the schooner Tiaveler, on her voy
age fiom Kingston to Key "West, till
be th of us weie familiar with the char
acter in which we weie to appeal, if
questioned. In spile of this, we weie
caieftil to avoid Spanish guaids and
paticls, ot whim there vveto plenty on
neailv every load, and made oui walk a
good deal longer in leaving the ioad to
avoid the llsk of meeting them. The
mole I thought of It, the stionger had
become my feelings of giatitude to my
companion, foi the effoi ts ho had made
to save my life, and I was leadily ie
signed myself to his guidance, only
pi utilising myself that, when we
leached Ilavann.I would make some at

1 had ft lends there, I said to my-elf,
and 1 was conscious of a keen sense of
delightful anticipation, ns I contemplat
ed the welcome which I hoped to le
celve fiom at least one peison. I till
nf i aid that it went far to leconcile me
at once to the falluie of my mission foi
the "Unlveise," nnd to the fate of my
unfoi lunate shipmates It Is mai v clous
how quickly the Itituio can obliterate
the past, especially the futuie ladlant
with hope, when set ngainst a back
gtouiiil that is daik and somber.
Thompson was to take me to a place
of safety, wheie he said that fiieijds
of his would shelter me foi a day or
two, till we could anange, elthei for
my safety in Havana, or tor some
method of getting away. As we stole
Into the subuibs, Just befote moonilse,
I could not but feel giateful for the
cleverness and care he had taken to
lnsuie my safety. It was daik the
soft languoious dnikness of an almost
bieezeless tioplcal night, when ull nn
tuie seems to be waiting tor the ilslng
of the moon and I soon began to
fancy that oven In the Uaikness I
could lecognlye some of the vvWl-ie-membered
landmniks of the place
War seemed not to have touched It at
all, and It would have been hard, In
deed, to Imagine anything mote peace
ful than the scene dimly vls'hle In the
shadows of the tteps Yet, sutely, I
knew the place. Anothet minute, and
I was eel tain of it. We weie in the
MY EYHS.
grounds T remembered so well, nnd
that shadowy building that could be
dimly traced among the tros was the
white villa ot Senor Castollano, ray
own nnd my lather's filend.
I stopped for a moment to ipeover
from the shock of the surmise, ,nnd
glanced quickly at my companion,
who was already a stop or two In ad
vance, ns something like n feeling of
doubt liashed tluough my mind
Thompson had spoken of his friends,
and I had lightly concluded that theie
was a lady in the case, although he
had not said so; and now what If It
weie so? What If this man who had
saved my llfe--for I knew that he must
have ddne so by his exertions what If
this man were a thai? A thousand
tales of the readiness with which glils
can forget the absent flashed through
my mind, and for a moment I was
ready to believe ajiythlng.
Thompson looked buck, and noticed
my hesitation "Come along," he said
In a low tone; "this Is the place."
I followed him mechanically toward
tho house. Most of the windows weie
dark, but, ns wp came In sight of the
side of the well known building, I saw
thut a bioad band or light sti earned
from a Fiench window which opened
on a small piazza that was moie than
half bulled In gorgeous creepeis I
paused again for an Instant; indeed, 1
felt ns If I daied not go on. How often
I had sat on that pluza! How often I
had wandered on Just such a night as
that under the slmdows of the pnlms!
My companion nppeaied haidly to le
member my presenco now, but stepped
eagerly foiwaid to the light. As he put
his foot on the step It seemed to me
that he did It like one who felt sure of
his welcome, and n hot smalt passed
through mo as I looked he hnlf turned
nnd beckoned me to tollow. I did rso
like ti man In a dream, nnd In another
moment I stood on the well-iemem-beied
spot.
The window wns thrown widely open,
nnd In another Instant 1 caught sight
of an nnn nnd a shoulder, nnd a head
bent down, as Its owner gnred at some
thing In her lap. "Senorlta Mnrgail
tn," my companion almost whispered
In n low tone yet there vvns something
Indescilbnbly sweet to my enr In the
sound of the fit st wotd. To me, nt nny
into, she had not been "senoritn," nnd
my heat t bounded at the woul, which
In a single moment gave me back all I
feared 1 had lost. Sho started and
looked up qulckjy. "Ah, Tomnso," she
exclaimed, swinging to hei feet, "My
good Tonlnso, so you hnAe loturned."
She held out her two hands with the
graceful action I knew so well, nnd my
heurt bounded ugnln, ns I felt thnt the
tone ppiesed friendship, Indeed, but
nothing mote. Thompson stepped lor-

waul with a grace which ceitalnlv
suited the name Tomnso better than
that by which I had known him, and
bent to kiss one of the hands she held
out She lifted her eyes at the mo
ment, nnd thev tested on me. as I
stood baie-headed In the entinnce of
the open window. Snatching he! hand
away, she put It to hei blow, as she
gnred at me with open lips for a ma
ment, and then exclaimed: ".lullano!
Hnve J ou indeed i etui tied''"
Thompson seemed scaicely to have
noticed the sudden way In which Mili
um ltd had withdiawn her hand, for he
had stooped to pick up fiom the llooi
the photogiauh nt which she had been
gazing so Intently, at the moment we
suipilsed her, but nt her exclamation,
which was nhnost a cty, he turned
quickly with It in his hand.
"Jullano!" he exclaimed, "you know
him then? And this this Is his plc
tuie, too ah." At the moment he
spoke, she spiang past him, and befote
either of us well knew what we weie
doing, I had tluovvn my aims iound
he. and cI'hwi, her to my heut, v. bile
she nun muted softly: "Jullano, Jull
ano." It was at least a minute befoie T
looked up, but when I did so it was to
see Thompson standing like a man
turned to stone, but with his- face
stiangely dlstotted by passion, so that
for the moment I should hatdly have
known him. As his eye caught mine,
his expiesslon alteied suddenly to a
smile, and mutteiing, hastily: "Ah, ex
cuse me, I will not Intel nipt," he
dtopped the photogtaph on the Hoot,
and, betoie I saw his intention, passed
suddenly tluough the open window and
disappeaied
To be Concluded.
STATEMENT BY MR. SMITH.
Republished fiom the Scianton Truth by
Special Itecpjcst.
A conespomlenco between the honorable
Judge's of Lackawanna county, and Mr A.
H. -McColhim, my attorney, which the
Judges have thpuhht proper to publish, ic
quiios on m pail a shot t iepl. The pio
piiety of the Judges wilting a lettei to my
attorney at all is at least questionable,
but the pioptiety of theli using tow aid
my attorney In their letter the following
thieatenlng language, Is fm mole Hum
questionable They say to him
"Although a lesldeut In an adjoining
county, you hivo been duly udmltted to
tho b u of this county, and uie entltltd to
piactlee at any time In the courts heie
With this pi Iv liege, however, you have as.
sumed the couespondlng duty of 'fidelity
to tho com t." and you cannot but bo
aw ate that no couit woithy of the mine
can poimlt its Justice and Integilty to bo
aspeised In this way without calling coun
sel to account foi It."
This Is a most fotelble demand on my
attorney to withdiaw fiom the case And
that It was effective will uppcu fiom a
statement of the facts, which ate thee.
The case or Bums vs. Smith, and the dls
bdiiuent case, glow out of pteelsely tho
same state of acts; and a statement of
the facts 111 the one case, would neeessatily
be a statement of the facts in the otlui.
The facts weie Hist stated In tho iiaper
bo.ok In the disbaiment ease. In regatd to
the statement of tile facts In the disbai
ment ease Mr McColhim was consulted,
and the statement was entfiely satisfac
toiy to him. In pupating the paper book
in tho limns case It was not deemed neces
saiy to consult him a second time, about
a statement of the same facts, he living
in anothet eountv. The facts stated In the
limns piper book aie In words, neaily.
In substance stiktli the same as the
facts stated In the paper book In the dis
baiment (ase About the middle of De
cembei, lMXi, I sent Ml. McCollum a papei
book.
Poi at least one month I lienrd not tho
slightest Intimation of any objection on
his pait. Hut Just three days alter the
Judges had sent him theli thieutenlng fet
ter, viz. Jan 17, 1897, I leceivetl fiom him
a letter intoiming mo that ho would with
diaw from the c i.p
J have sulllclent lonlldence In Mr. Mc
Collum to believe tint It he withdlew fiom
the case, because the statement in tho
p.tpei book was objectionable, and not on
account of tho Judges' tlneaUning lettei,
he would on the lecelpt of the papei book
have given mo notice to that effect so that
I might have sulllclent time to employ
other counsel and would not have waited
until it was too lute foi that purpose
The Judges must know if It Is an olfonse
for a biwyei to thi eaten a Judge as to tho
perfoi in nice of his olilclal clut) , thut it Is
equally so for a Judge to thi eaten a law
yer us to the peifoimance of his ofliclal
duty. They must know that If two or
mote persons consplie, together to foue,
by thteat, or othetvvlse, an attorney liom
the perform meo of his olilclal duty, that
It is an offense And If two oi moro
Judges should consplro to do the samo
thing, It Is also an offense I am not d's
posed to blame Mr. McCollum. Most men
fear tho ruin of themselves and their fam
ilies I have feared It myself, and noth
ing short of Inexotablo duty to my client
could fotco mo to voluntatlly accept de
struction. I was forced to make a choice
between duty on tho ono sldo and ruin
on the other. I chose the formet ut the
cost of the lattei And there aie many
good men w ho w 111 bellev o my choice was
not a wlto one, jet 1 cannot so regard it
Whllo tho choice will strip mo of pro
fession and piopetty, It will leavo me my
honor and mv manhood
Having no desire to Involvo othcis In
my misfortunes. Were I not dlsbiiued
I would prefer to light alone, as I have
done for seven yeais. Hut being silenced
this Is not possible. And while I am thus
helpless I submit to tho Judgement of all
fair-minded pel sons that the Judges, In
dlsatmlng a fallen foe, have gotio too far.
t'ndei such a condition most men would
disdain to strike.
