Tbo saloon of the Ilendrlk Ilndson
would havo been a sore sight to the
eyes of Mcnslcs. the Scotch steward,
If ho lind been thcro to too Its tcrrlblo
illshevolment. Hound the table four
dirty, sheep skinned soldiers sat and
fingered a filthy pack of cards. In each
month was stuck an evil smelling cl
ear, and Innumerable stains of Jugs
and tumblers mat Led the smooth ma
hogany. The cellaret doors had been
burst open by thn kicks of lusty boots,
and books, broken crockery and a heap
of llttlo knlckknncks strewed the floor.
Tho company had evidently feasted
where It slept. The dirty plates anil
knives of tho previous evening meal
were tossed carelessly Into n comer,
unwashed and sticky. Tho mud of
shore and forest wns thick on carpets
pne of the men took n sup from a
Jug beside him and cursed aloud.
"To call this thin wash liquor," be
complained. "I'd rather have tho
scourlngs of n vodkl cup whence nil
had gone but the smell."
"Uog's drink, cat lap," agreed an
other. "Never a sup of real spirit can I

encomium. Mo, though they continued
to sup ct the Jug perfunctorily, they
didn't cc.tso to condemn the contents.
The Irritation bom of their unaccus

A hall came from their comiades on
tho deck. One of them thrust his head
below the raised skylight, summoning
them to como quickly, They reeled up
the companion and stnred stupidly
round them across sea and shore. One
of tho men who had been on deck
pointed to whero'a cleft In the ring of
rocks showed the cliffs of the farther
bay. About 300 yards away a man
could be seen digging methodically at
the crag foot. Beside him lay a brown
object. Indistinguishable nt that dis
tance. The follow was throwing up
the sand energetically and looked nei
ther to therlght'iband nor th left.
Thcro -was but tho one narrow silt 111
the ringing rocks that gave view upon
blm at all. It was evident he kiteiv
notblng of the nearness of the yacht.
YnroslaU, the corporal, snapped !i(i
fingers In his delight, "What should
man bury here'f" quoth he. "Why,
what we're bemoaning tho want of
liquor, my boys; good liquor. l'e al
ways heard this was a bay for tho
rmugglers. He's leaving this for the
Lapps without a doubt. Now shnll we
both preserve tho law of the empire
and get refrahment fit for gentlemen
and soldiers. But quietly, jou little
pigeons, quietly, and we'll suo what
the'oM scoundrel's up to."
They stole silently across the gang
way and wormed among the shore
rocks till In a clrclo they stood behind
the man. Unconsciously he toiled on
at his digging, and the grins grew up
on the soldiers' faces. Finally, as he
delved away, Vladimir, a young re
cruit, contained himself no longer. lie
burst Into a roar of laughter and strode
forward, holding bis sides, nor were
the others stow to Join In bis hilarious
bawllugs. The man started up with
n Jerk of surprise. Ho faced round
upon them tremblingly, his eyes vltla
and staring, no sank upon thn mud
and lifted his hunds to the cm porn 1
"Meicy, captain, mtrcyl It Is but i
llttlo I Btoru against the ii Inter."
Tho corporal iinotc his slioti'der In
good humored ferocity.
"Son of n do' I" he shouted. "As If
I didn't kuo.- j'nu niul your 'ways!
Why bhonld flu in, the forester, store
good liquor out here? You want to
trade with the Lapps, n thing strictly
forbidden, ns well you know, you des
perate old contrabandist! Now n great
flno will be duo from you."
"Mercy!" said old Stefan, groveling.
"Mercy, sir! It Is a little, llttlo barrel,
antl I am of the poorest. All mine' Is
yours If you but fornear tho reporting
"This," said Taroslatf, picking, up
the barrel, "is neither yours nor mine.

"Ivan's," answered the old Jnger,

He ra'sed thektg ana took a mouth

Bhortly from tho cabin came soumU
of thu clink of glass and boisterous
toasts and Jcstlngs, rising at List tc
uproar os the hot liquor fumed Ittti
Tho turmoil lasted but a short time
The Jests grow less frequent, tin
snatches of song more maudlin. Tlnnl
ly both died away Into Incoherent imit
terlngs, Tho corporal's head begnn tt
nod ominously end suddenly thudded
forward upon tho tnble. One of ld
tipsy comrades solemnly emptied v
glass of the spirit over It. Tho fellow
never ccn niowil. Tho other llt
were leaden eyed and blinked stupidly
one upon tho other, drinking still with
automatic Insistence, clutching their
glasses with nerveless hunds. First
one and then another yawned, rubbed
his eyes, looked round gaplngly and
then surged forward till he, too, like
his leuder, lolled his head upon the
tnble and slept stcrtorously, Hoon no
sound came up to the watcher on deck
sac snores, a round chorus of heavy
grunts that (.hook the tumblers on the
table und made the very deck planks
Cautiously Stefan peered beneath the
open skylight and looked down on the
six motionless bodies below. Batlsflcd
with his scrutiny, he withdrew his
head and descended Into tho cabin.
He exumlned each man carefully aud
shook his shoulders, clapping bis hand
upon them heavily while he bawled
aloud the namo of each torpid sot. No
answer came to his cnlllugs. Not one
of them so much ns winked an eye.
He came on deck again and went for
ward. Selecting a coll of rope, ho took
It back with blm and with slow, me
thodical action took out his clasp knife
and cut It Into short lengths. With
these he bound each man securely
hnnd and foot. Then, ranging them
In a row upon the cabin floor, he
placed a cushion or footstool beneath
each head und left them there, rigid,
unconscious, lashed up Into the simili
tude of half n dozen graven Images.
Taking the rest of the vodkl, he care-
Jit tat there, irattfno, watching, lool.fng
into tic nlo'it,
fully bore It on deck and poured tt Into
the sea. Then, lighting bis pipe, ho
drew a deck chair beside the taffrall
and as the evening closed about him
sat theic, waiting, watching, looking
into the night, alert and expectant.
Five miles nway besldo .the castle
moat stood Illlmar and Desmond, dirt
about his wnlst was a long coll of cord,
and sheathed III his belt was his knife,
flanked by a fllo and a brace of pistols.
In his baud bo held a crowbar. For an
Instant he staid and looked down at
his companion. Tho moment for the
attempt was come.
Ooodby, nilmar dear!" The last
woru camo shyi aU(1 haltingly, lie
looked at her half doubtfully.
She turned her oyos up to his wist
fully. They were shining with unshed
tears, but her glanco was brave and
there i as no tremor In her voice.
"Goodby, Desmond, dear!" 'she, an
Bwered, with n tendT Inflection on tho
word tbat hnd come so falterlngly
from him. She pronounced It steadily.
Somehow her lips closed over It with
a delicious pout. l)esuioud wavered
and looked at her almost Inquiringly.
Then ho stooped and kissed her and
met with no repulse.
With tho touch of that sweet fare
well on his lips and no room In his
heart for fear or aught but triumph bo
turned silently from her and caught nt
a poplar bough. He swung his legs
acioss It, rose tip nnd gained another,
higher, Thus from bough to bough be
swung hlmEclf till 30 feet above the
ground he reached the great limb that
shot out above the water, stretching
far toward the, castle walls. He made
his way along It Inch by Inch, desisting
only when Its drooping twigs told h!in
that the farthest point of safety was
reached. He unslifyg tho cord from his
waist, attached to oue end his crowbar
nnd silently began to swing It to und
fro. Backward and forward It pendu
htcd, widening Its reach at every beat,
till finally Its utmost sw)ng brought It
over tho barn roof. There was n ring
cf metal, nud tho cord quivered and
staid (ant. Desmond .pulled with all
bis strength. Te rope waj rigid. Then
he Mshca the ondlje held to the bough
besldo him. The gulf was bridged.
He waited a minute or two to see If
any sentry had heart! the clang of tho
cieetlug iron. Faintly up antl down the
courtyard, he could hear the regular
beat of stcpsL These stopped, and tho
sound of a grating lock came distinct
ly to him across tha silence of the
night. A ray of light shot, up through

tho ynitl. There wns n Jingle of keys
is the warder drew llicni from the
lock. Then to and fro tho monotonous
lieat of the sentry was resumed.

hands nnd swung his knees ncrors It.

Ing, lie had to use the utmost caution to
(irccut dislodging the stouo roof slabs.
Splinters, the result of many a win
ttr's frost, lay about him In heaps.
Fortunately those he displaced fell al
most noiselessly Into the stream. Any
one henrlug tnem might mistake them
for the rise of feeding fish. Ho took
fioni his pocket n llttlo Jar of giense
ind smeared It nn the central liar of
the gintlng. Then with his rasp he
begnn to rub at the Iron, entlng steadi
ly through tho metal, which was rust
ed by storm nnd damp to half Its orig
inal thickness. He kept to his work
without ceasing, save to rub now and
ignln moro grcaHo Into the nlehu he
made, swinging the long file backward
nud forward, pressing despcrutely
upon tho bars, gjsplng with excite
ment nnd the energy of his toll, the
perspiration raining from his forehead.
Half an hour of unceasing toll, nud
the bar broke. Itlslng to bis feet, he
sought n sure foothold nnd then elznl
tho seteied end nnd tore It slowly
back. The metal, softened by expo
sure, gave under his strenuous tugs.
Unfortunately ns he bent nnd pried It
back the fur end snapped ut the nngle
of the bend. With a clatter that sound
id out with horrible distinctness ho Tell
prone upou the roof. He lay still, his
heart throbbing In gieat beats that
seemed to suffocate him. The steps of
the sentry censed In tho courtjnrtl. no
could but have heard the clatter, nnd
his suspicions were aroused. Then n
desperate Idea en mo Into Desmond's
head, "tfee-ow, yee-ow!" he mlawcd,
the tremor of his voice giving n par
ticularly feline ring to the sounds.
"Yee-ow, fzz-st!" Aud he spat nnd
scrabbled at an Imaginary rival, dis
lodging one or two bits of shale reck
lessly. "Ugh!" grunted tho sentry nnd, pick
ing up n pebble, east it at tho roof nnd
resumed his wnlk down the center of
the courtyard. The stone fell within
a yard of Desmond's face and, re
bounding, struck him over tho eye. If
he could have found It, ho felt he
should like to preserve ft as a precious
He resumed his work nt tho next
bar with greater caution, and, to nigh

work enw It, too, broken. He twisted
It aside anil fastened his xcmatnlng
ropo tolthe side of tho grating. Then,
wriggling his body feet first through
the opening, be caught tho loose end
between his hands and slid down Into
the darkness of the barn.
The prisoners must have beard his
operations on the roof, but no Bound
came up to him. Ho landed gently on
the floor, let go the rope nnd began to
feci round 111 in with groping hands.
For a yard or two he crept .about In
the darkness, 'finding nothing. He
gave a slight whisper. No answer
came. With beating heart he Btrode
forward, playing out bis hands beforo
him. Nothing met his touch but a
blank wall. With sickening disap
pointment at his heart he crawled
round the walls, feeling, stretching,
grasping at emptiness. He crossed
and recrosred tho floor aimlessly. The
result was everywhere the same. His
adventure was vain. The born was
trnpty, the floor smooth nud void as
when nilmar played In it In the days
of long ago.
As this was borno upon him he turn
ed despairingly to tho ropo to climb
forth ngaln and renew his Bonich else
where. He clutched the ropo and be
gan to haul himself up hnnd by band.
Theie were a quiver and n giato from
above. The lion framework stirred
and began to move. He drew himself
up with quick, desperate Jeiks. Too
late! With a clash nnd a clang tho
bars came away from the walls aud
fell clattering to tho bard stone pave
ment, A corner struck him, and,
bleeding .ind half stunned, he rolled
upon tho floor, a prisoner Indeed.
