Theodore was absent at dinner,
without apology; and the women
were in bed before he stole to his
room, and lay tossing again. De- J

library, lighted a lamp, paw the j

Theodore struck himself on the
breast and started to his feet, deter
mined to flee to his work, and from
the dangers of his unclehood.
Trembling with excitement he at
tempted a note to Virginia. Wil
der at the cabin, messages at the
Beach, meant danger and disgrace
if he neglected his task longer, in
famy if he toyed on with tempta
tion. He told Chloe through her
door that he bad been called away,
and that she must explain to the
ladies. He hastily packed a bag,
ran down and unmoored the launch,
and fled down the river at a speed
made foolhardy by the darkness.
Emerging into Mobile bay. he stood
toward Palmetto Reach, his eyes
straight before him, steering with
automatic accuracy. Only one
thing roused him from his trance —
a white object lying on the gun
wale, which he picked up and
placed in his notebook —the dropped
petal of a magnolia bloom.
Mr. Wizner Secures a Command.
Captain Harrod, dignified, bare- j
footed, soft-voiced, unkempt, kept
bis lonely vigil on the white j
straight-edge of beach that lay from
Fort Morgan to Perdido Bay. All
was of sand, sandy. The sand-col- j
ored sandpipers skittered across the
beach before the breezes: pelicans
in sober beach-gray deliberately
skimmed the cottony combers
bursting on the outer sand bar; por
poises leaped and spouted in ter
ror when caught in the receding
tide among the sandy shallows near
the shore: and once in a while tin
evil-eyed shark gloomed cruelly
(like a spot of darker sand with
cold little eyes) from the green i
water beyond reach of the fisher-
man's gig. To the unlettered man
for seventy years familiar with
Such things, however, they wax un
So one may understand why Cap
tain Harrod, ignoring landscape and
■Seascape, devoted himself to the
study of tracks of all sorts; tracks
of foxes examining the beach for
turtles' eggs, months ahead of time;
talon-marks of opossums and rac
coons prowling about for crabs,
mice and birds' eggs; hoof-marks
of wild hogs, rooting over the mast
under the scrub-oaks: "crawls" of
alligators, made in nightly journ
eys between Freshwater lake and
-deep holes in the pools among the j

By Herbert Quick
traveled highway of the strand: and
the footprints of one In particular,
who lurked about and seemed to be
thinking of the cabin and its in
mates. Yes, this Bedouin sand
science can tell thoughts bj tracks.
Tracks in the sand were to Harrod
book, newspaper, telegraph and cir
culating library. He knew the lan
guage of sand. He knew several
things that this man might be. A
deserter from the Fort, perhaps,
though such an one would have
been likely to be descried by the
corporal's guard in the scouting air
ship, and should have slunk inland
by the dense hummocks of Hen Se
cour. Or it might be some one con
nected with the revenue service.
This hypothesis should, of course,
have given the captain no uneasi
ness. He was an exemplary fisher
man, with boat on shore, and "tres
mires" drying on their stakes, fish
ing formally on fine days for red
fish. Spanish mackerel and pom
pano. His cabin was "Harrod's
fishing ramp—nothing more. What
bad revenue officers to do with
su( h humble piscatorial headquar
ters as these? They should not
care about Theodore's hidden in
vention. The air-ships keeping
their lanes, east, west, north and
south paid no attention: and, if
they were not interested, why need
the revenues bother? The humble
: establishment bad no connection
with the world save through fish
j —as any revenue officer should
! have known.
And yet—one day the captain re
arranged bis drying nets, solicitous
as to their draping; and soon a
! slimy sea-monster stuck a blunt
, nose out from the water at about
I the five-fathom contour line, opened
I a rectangular mouth, and flicked a
square red tongue like an angry
' snake, until Captain Harrod. on the
highest dune, opened a brilliant red
handkerchief with a Chautauqua
salute, and wiped his nose elabo
rately, Whereupon the sea-rtion-
I ster sank beneath the brine, and no
. one but the porpoises and sharks
might say where it went. What
took place that night was concealed
jby darkness. If Captain Harrod
! was busy carrying packages ashore
: until morning, he came by them
honestly, no doubt.
An examination of the popular
; novels or periodicals of the past—
I say of the era of that president
j whose Christian name our Theodore
; bears —will be rewarded by a real
: ization of prophecy gone wrong as
to the influence on smuggling of
', aerial navigation. It must bring
! free trade, they said. Ships navi
| gating the air could land their car
goes anywhere, every acre being a
potential port of entry. Yet. the
air-ships gave the custom-house
people an astonishingly small
amount of trouble. Air-ships were
so conspicuous; their loads were
necessarily so light; the system of
reporting them by wireless from
Canada. Mexico and the islands was
so efficient; the listing and regis
try regulations were so perfect; the
risk of loss was so great ; the perils
of transoceanic flights were so pro
hibitive; and the cooperation be
tween nations was so hearty that
smuggling had little aid from aero
nautical success, such as it was.
Very unexpectedly, it was the
submarine that drove the "reve
nues" wild and filled the law books
with Draconian statutes. No trade
ever grew faster. The submarines
were shady characters but they had
pretensions to legitimate trades —
like other dubious individuals; and
it was their business to be lost
to sight for long periods of time.
The storms which kept in harbor
the scouts of the law offered the
submarine opportunities, and sub
marine cannot pursue submarine.
The boat-fish dived beneath the
tempest, rose on some lonely coast
like this by appointment with some
Captain Harrod sitting like a he
whiskered bit of wreckage on the
dunes. Driven to open lawlessness
by detection, some of the devilish
craft embraced open piracy, re
stored to the seas a flavor of the
seventeenth century, and waxed fat
on spoils. Passengers on transat
lantic liners learned to grow pale
at equivocal objects in the sea, in
expectation of the submarine's ef
fective "stand and deliver," backed
by torpedoes in place of the time
honored pistol. Maintaining re
lations with slimy sea-mon
sters was a fairly safe and
lucrative diversion; but a
mighty ticklish thing to be found
out in. Hence, perhaps, Captain
Harrod's profound interest in
tracks, his nervousness at the rus
tling of the red-brown Jorees under
the scrub. Their whistles, too,
sounded startlingly like human sig
nals. He searched the thickets, in
sue h cases, until he found his feath
ered friend, or established the ab
sence of enemy.
