I sank down Into the depths of an
upholstered divan without, rested mv
head within my hands, and endeavored
earnestly to collect though' and nerve
for the coming struggle The
of our situation only became
mote apparent as I considered it iu
the light of the discoveries alrcad)
made, and In my understanding of tun
nature of those with whom I was now
associated. Neither Tuttle nor IHj
Nova had ever mistaken the Sea
Queen for the warship Esmeralda. It
was Impossible to conceive that these
two trained seamen could have made
such an errorf or that the men unuer
them could have been so utterly deceived.
Tuttle's boat came up directly
beneath the luws, with the
lamps burning brightly and nnealnii
the name; oery man aboard must
have seen It plainly. Yet what object
could have led to so desperate an
act of piracy? What part was I ats
tlned to play in the final working om
of their lawless scheme?
The longer I studied over the prob
Jem the more thoroughly did I become
mystified and confused. What could
these men ever hope to accomplish In
this lawless fashion? They must be
fools or madmen. This was not tne
ate of piracy; every league of sea was
patrolled; eery port protected by
telegraphic communication. Where
could they sail? Where could they expect
to land? Where on all the round
globe could they hope to go to escnyp
the vengeance of British power on tne
high seas? What object could possibly
Inspire them to so reckless an
Difficult as my own situation undoubtedly
was, apparently helpless
among this crew of sea devils, without
a man on board in whom I could
fuit trust, it was rendered a thousnnd
times harder by the presence of those
two women. Jn what way could I protect
and serve them? I wondered If
all the crew forward were In the pint,
or were the leaders alone Involved?
Could I count on finding a single honest
sailor In all that riffraff who' would
stand by me In revolt? There were
others on board the three seaman
and the engineer of the yacht's crew,
the Chilean officer captured on shore
but they were prisoners, far more
helpless even than myself. The longer
I thought the darker grew the prospect,
the closer the cords of Fat
pressed about me. There was nothing
to do eicept to face the conspirators
boldly, and thus ascertain the
whole truth. I glanced upward at the
telltale compass overhead the res
el's course had already been altered;
we were now beaded westward, directly
oat tnto the broad Pacific.
T met Tuttle at the end ot the
''o. ellnsinj: (o the handrail, his
oilskins flapping in the head wind. He
never glanced toward me, the cool,
studied Insolence of the fellow causing
ne to feel more deeply than ever he-tore
his consciousness of power.
"The yacht Is several points off her
course, Mr. Tuttle," I said, sharplj
determined to test him. "May I as.'i

" Moreover, I have not the slightest
doubt that you knew it from the first.
.Vow I demand some explanation, Mr.
Tuttle. What does this mean?"
He stood leaning back against the
rail facing me, the disagreeable grin
gone from his lips, his half-closed
eyes glinting uneasily.
"Well, what of It?"
"Only that we have committed an
act of piracy. Kvery naval vessel of
the civilized world will be used to hunt
us down. We shall not be safe on any
sea. nor able to land in any port of
the globe. If we resist we shall bo
blown out of the water; If captured,
our crime means death. Tou have deliberately
decoyed me into this affair
for some secret purpose of your own;
you have Involved me la your crime,
and now I Insist upon some knowledge
of your plan, and an explanation regarding
my future authority on board."
"Oh, yoa are the captain," sneering-
lv "Whil nnni on wnn want"
"Then, If I am, we will head directly
back to Valparaiso."
"Oh, I rather guess not;" and Tut-tie's
eyes became Instantly hard aad

we want her to go."
That Is It, Is It?"
"Yes, that's exactly the ticket"
I turned partlslly aside, glancing toward
the wheelman. The fellew waa
leaning forward over the spokes, evidently
deeply Interested In our controversy
and endeavoring to hear all we
bad to say. Tuttle followed the direction
of my eyes, but with apparent Indifference.
"Oh, they all understand about It,"
he remarked, carelessly "And now I

want to show you, an' be along myself
in a Jiffy. Then I'll spin n yarn that'll

There was nothing else to do, and I
followed him down the brldgo stops
to the main deck. The charthnuse
had Its Hlngle door opening aft, and
was a small, plainly built structure
painted n dingy gray, with two narrow
windows on either side, and Just
enough space within to contain a
deal table, locker, and three rude
ti nchert. I sat down urn.i one of
'lns., filled and l'shted m pipe and
naiied In sIlKucf, gazing Idly at the
thart pinned tint on the table. It was
a mnp of thse waters Mng off the
Chilean coast, and a vessel's course

Fernandez to Vnlimrals" This did
not particularly Interest mv, nnd my

dignity of manner had she met the

likely, for either act would Involve
the danger of nn exposure they would
be little Inclined to assume. I comprehended
already that It would be
according to their decision, and not
mine. I had been plainly Informed
bow little my control extonded over
their desires. And whither were we
bound' Into what strange seas? Into
what species of wild adventure? The
utter Impossibility of keeping those
two concealed below for any length of
time was clearly evident Ship life was
ar too restricted, noth Tuttle and
He Nova would naturally expect to

could not easily be denied Yet what
would they i,a. how would they act,
when the finally discovered these two
unwilling pashengers aboard'' What
was my duty in all the circumstances?
It was all a deep, unsolvable mystery,
yet out of Its mist constantly Heated
the appealing face of that wosaan

her I could not consider anythlag
except how I might best serve her Interests,
best protect her from the contamination
of this hell afoat.
Three shadows suddenly darkened
the doorway, and Tuttle, accompanied
by De Nova and the big seaman named
Hill Anderson, entered. The second
officer nodded to & In genial faoV

Anderson slouched nullity past and
droppd l.caUly on a bench, his coarr.c
bulldog features deold of all cxprcs

tobacco in his cheek. I took notlcn of
his eyes, staring straight out of the
window opposite, dull, dog-like, deeply
sunken undr thatched browa, hi skin
like brown leather drawn tight, his
short red neck, and gnarled hands. Al
together he appeared a repulsive
brute, no more easily subdued than a
Jungle tiger. Tuttle sidled along to
the opposite side of the table, upon
which he placed a tightly rolled, yellowish-backed
paper, evidently a navigating
chart. As I watched him curiously,
he suddenly pressed the point
of his thumb down upon the papor.

Here is a simple mixture
as given by an eminent authority on
Kidney diseases, who makes the statement
that it will relieve almost any
case of Kidney trouble it taken before
the stage of Bright's disease. He
states that such symptoms as lame
back, pain in the side, frequent desire
to urinate, especially at night:; painful
and discolored urination, are readily
overcome. Here is the ripe. Try it:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, ono ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparills, three
ounces. Take a teaspoonful after each
meal and at bedtime.
A well-known druggist here in town
is authority that these ingredients are
all harmless and easily mixed at home
by shaking well in a bottle. This mixture
has a peculiar healing and soothing
effect upon the entire Kidney and
Urinary structure, and often overcomes
tho worst forms of Rheumatism
in just a little while. This mixture is
said to remove all blood disorders and
cure the Rheumatism by forcing tho
Kidneys to filter and strain from the
blood and system nil uric acid and foul,
decomposed waste matter, which cause
these afflictions. Try it if you aren't
