fr another start.
"Larkin warn all right," he continued,
"uatl we struck the Samoan Islands
where he met ay Cheese. That wasn't
her name, utM we alled her Mary Cheese
Ju to tease Larkis.
"We anchored in Apli, the prineipal
island In the Samoan group, early In May

our ud-ook and sailed fr Pog Page,
sixty miles distant with the uslan con

island rising several hundred feet above
water and elosing a circular basin or

entrance to the harbor is a narrow open

hip war. steered ha ntive pilot. On t
north ,ýore of tsh the government
had dumped a huge pile of coal for the
use of her hiWp in those waters. We were
there for coal and remained four dae
illing the b.nkers. It was in this
turesque spot that larkins fell In love.'
"At that tiMne he was a mess-cook down
on the lower deck, where he prepared the
daily soreech of his mnessnates. Think of
It will you? Those low, vulgar sailors
called nie, clean Ngrub screech. It makes
me sick to think of It," and the captain
shudered at the are recollecstion
"W nthe feows g.ot through scown

"A dead-light," explained the cap'n, as
he notioed signs of an explosion in the
lubber's vicinity, "is a window or pot
hole. The side of the ship was two feet
thick, the dead-light on the inside being
about 13 Inches in diameter and a foot or
so on the outside. It was seven feet above
the water line, but that made no differ

canoe under the dead-lglht and then crawl
up and han on to the c nel-plates and

"iD stiking the top of his head dow n

but he couldn't ks her. All he could do
was to fondle her face, etc, as she occa
slonally shifted her position to ease her
overtaxed muscles, and look unutterable

ILrkins would get amtms of the heart.
Then he would go da into the mes
chest and hand out a cold boiled spud to
Mary. She would reiprocate with a a.

with a panul of coffee grounds or some
soap. She brought o a host load of

pledges of affection until Larkins .ad

"Wblp dn't he marry the girlr ?" asked
"When we got the coal aboard,. con
