The colonel made his story as brief as
he was able to.
The Clan liiiclmnan had had a fair
voyage until nearing the equator, when
it was struck by a tempest of a cyclone

despaired of. but finally the hurricane
had abated, and the crew and passen

When death closes the scene no furth- j

Isaac Lewis had been absent from

then the powerful drug overcame her,
and, though partly conscious, she was
helpless. While she was able to make
the least movement, the hand was held
over her face. Then she wasiware of
