There was dead sllence, and a great

A tim ot silver llght flnshed upwnrds
In tho sotithem sky. It filled tho groy
heavens, flnshed from silver to yellow,
to plnk, to crlmsOn. to dnzzllng gold. nnd
then dled . out. . Above them blazed the
Southern Cross, and the chlll brenth of
the ctcrnnl lee wns wnfted Into thelr
fnejes ncross the mysterlous sllence of
the darkonlng sea.
It was, a tlme and place to make men

They were nearlng the Ick gates of the

The watch had been doubled. for sev?
ral Icebergs hnd been slghted. The
chnrt showed tho South Sbethinds to bc
near. Over nnd over agaln they had dls?
cussed Juan Gasknra's dlroctions. The
latltude and longltudo of the old plmte
were.utterly lmposslble. What humin
bclngs bad over- found such a spot ns
the Intcrsectlon .of these two Irnaglnary
lines would depote?
Thero was a passage "clear ln Mny,"
Clear of what? The answer could only
be Ico. The "Flame Mountnln'' mlght

dlscovered volcnno of the Antarctlc re?
glons. The nlght seals' thundcr wns
deflnlte enough, but what of the blood
wnter, nnd tho current that smoked?
Thelr only hope was to push south and
trust to tlme and luck to solve tho myu
tery. Black Juan's dlrections were loo
hnzy, vngue and Indeflnlte to stccr any?
thing except a bllnd man's course by.
Tlme was not allowed to hnng hcavily.
I.eckburn nnd Hector woro too wiso for

to make tho englnes go out on strlke.
Tho Starvor presldcd over tho blg driun,
whlle Mumps, a I.nscar, regularly blow
hlmself Into a persplrntlon wlth a trom

a whole compendlum of games.
On the eloventh tho flrst great snow

cold was terrlblo. Furfl were served out,
and tho olectrlc stoves were kept bur.i

was the fall that It was dlfilcult to koep

flakes pottrcd down from a lenden sky,
Then It cloared, nnd the heavens blazed
wlth constellntlons, whllst tho Southern
Aurora danced nnd flnshed nnd glittered
In sheets of colored llght.
They met at dlnner, On dcok tho
thermomoter reglstered twonty-threa d>
grees of frost, Thoro was not a rlpplo

stlll and clear. Ruby was vearlng no

Starvor looked llko a human balloon
perchod on two short, fat legH.
"I'm not a blg traveler llke Ned and

"Bo they do, as a rulo, eonny. A lack
of joeborga means a cold summer."
"There may be another reason," s.iid
hls lordshlp. "The water seems utterly
dead. When we wero lylng to yesterday

"Yaas, Massa Sah Cllve, sah!"
Cllvo tled tho strlng to bls servlette.
There were crlos of protest as he open?
