The smile had f- 1 and there wna
only the grlmnoca I t on hi face. The
bout waa laden w..i supplies for the
lighthouse, atan:-x clean and white
at the end of the long sboal twq miles
from the mainland. Ben was assistant

a little solace, s . ;
"I expect some day Til be darned
glnd It happened." he told himself
-savagely, as be polished the brasses
ttnd cleaned the big lenses. '
It was wild autumn, with raging
seas and furlons winds that shook the
building to Its foundation. Folks
ashore arose In the night and looked
off toward Bands Light to see If some
giant sea ha not swept It away, but
nothing happened until Christmas
week, When a blinding snowstorm held
the country In thrall and the friendly
beams of, Sands Light could scarcely
be . seen.'. ''
"What thatr bellowed the keeper
above the noise of, the horn.
. "Sea gulls poor critters," muttered
"Sounds Ilk ay" The two men
"rushed to window and looked out.
At first nothing could be seen but the
-mothering cloud of snowf.jkes. There
was no sign of an unfortunate vessel
'beartag toward the shoal or the signal
-fires of the life waving station yes.
' -ther were the fires miles below at
' Kitlcnt Beach the life savers were
out tonight- Off Kltlcut Beach were
the Mack rocks where another light
was placed. But still came that In
sistent cry that seemed timed to sound
'. whenever the foghorn paused.
"It's on the shoal below maybe
someone from the wreck off Kltlcut."
' -shouted Ben and be pulled on his oil
.' "Tou'll be drowned!" warned his
unt. "But you've got to go. Benny."
s For the first time since his broken
, engagement Ben laughed outright lie
kissed his aunt and made for the lower
sloor. Half an .hour afterward he
Ihranght up one by one four people,
three aromen and one man. survivors

could speak little English, but gave a j
' lusty hand In helping Ben reach the
life saving station.
The two women and the cook went
