to the starboard nd of the bridge,
and. when ne glanced around, made
signal for him to join me
"Not very much chance of any one

I said, pleasantly "It would be like
hunting a needle In a haystack '
"TIs as the Lord wills." he returned,

He turned his crafty, gllterlng eyes
toward me. twisting the lump of tobacco
under his tongue. In some way,

"And that. then, is all you have discovered,

He shifted his long legs, but made
no effort to turn and fare me
"Well. I guegg that's about the

I nodded, gravely, wondering what
the man could possibly be driving at
"That was my understanding." his
nasal tone becoming more pronounced
and disagreeable "And somehow
what we've got here looks Just a bit
odd. This hfre Is a schooner-rigged
steam yacht all right, an' I gues3 the

"Well what of that'" I broke In

I bent over the mil looking down
at the lettering he pointed out, yet

"Glad ye take It so cool, an' maybe

The follow was gazing
straight ahead of him Into the rapidly
thinning fog. It was the manner of
the mate more than his words that Ira-pressed
"See here. Mr Tuttle." and I
dropped my hand rather heavily on
his sleeve, "kindly explain exactly

"Well, when I come to think It
