Oh," said Cambel. sign on ar
ticles to the usual way as one cf tho ship's

'Tlsn't the first time that pleasing fiction
has been palmed npon a shipping1 master.
" dnesn't deceive ny one, you know, be
cause the rate of wages gives one away
at the outset, but the country's mutton
beaded paternal shipping laws are obeyed,
and so even-body's pleased."
Fairfax laughed and went into the outer
offices, and l'strlck Cambsl turned to the
ehlpowner with a couple cf.,uestlous.
-To begin with." he said, "Why did yon
e?r f rcbiht to Norfolk and Pcnsacola and
Mobile" and those places? If you call in
there, tha natural thing would be to pet
tho specie ashore and express it by rail
road direct to New Orleans. If you mios
that chance and start carrying it round by
sea, the thing looks fishy at once. Now.
fUhincss Is sir aspect which we can't afford
In the very loast deRreo. The swindle will
call up quite enough sensation in its most
honest and straightforward dress."
"My dear Mr. Cambcl, please give me
credit for a little more finesse. I sua tho
objection to intermediate ports as much as
you do, but 1 merely mentioned them to
Fairfax a a blind. To bcein with. It Is a
huudred tocne chance ogninst our getting
any cargo consigned to tbcin at this sea
son of the yenr at all, even If we offered to
carry It grntis. In the second place, if it
was offered I coujd easily get out of it in
60 ways. Afterward, when tho deplorable
accident takes place, an inquiry into this
will help to draw off attention from your
Florldian peninsula. Any one Inclined to
carp will inktautly bo told that wo were
equally ready to put the specie ashoro on
tho Virginia coast if our other cargo had
led tm there. What do you think of that
"Ikg your pardon. That's clear sighted
enough and should work correctly. Hut
I fancy my other objection is bettor
fouuded. What in tho name of phiguo did
you go and economlzo overinsuranco for?
Why didn't you get the stuff underwritten

"Oh, wind!" retorted Cambel. "Don't

talking with a coconspirator. But I fancy
we Understand ono another more comfort
ably now, and I'll leave you to make the
rest of tho arrangements here in London.
This afternoon I'll pick up Kettlo and run
down to Liverpool and get things in hand
there. They'll require care. To begin
with, there's a suitable armament to ba
smuggled on board without advertisement.
And there arc the nefarious preparations to
be made. Piracy on the high reas is cot
a thing to be undertaken lightly nowa

"Ob, my liod!" cried Shelf. "Don't

"I speak of them," replied Cambel '
grimly, "because It is rl;-ht tl-at you '

In jeopardy, failure or no failure, I natu

Only understand fully, Mr. Theodora

to boot you will be as guilty as the wor.it. j

CHAPTER VII. . .
The Port Edes had gained aba name of
an unlucky snip. had alalathms at9
In Kef buIIcKngVshe atl crushed another
to acath the day she left the slips, and
though only thrue years in tho water sho
Had already maimed enough hands from
various crows to make her a foil comple
ment. Some vessels are this way. From
no explainable cause there seems to be a
diabolical fatality about thorn.
It ia not to be supposed that sailormen
rush to join a craft of this sinister reputa
tion. They may bo asses in the bulk, but
they arc only asses in part. They always
try for the best berths first. Hut because
there are not enough of theso to go round;
and because, thanks to tho Dago and the
Dutchman, there are not suiUcient berths
of any sort whatever to supply all asulr-
ants, it is always possible to man any ves
sel which a board of trade official will pass
mrougn a uncc gates.
Just as no man is ever successful in
anything without duo course, so per con
tra few sailormen aro down on their luck
except through some peculiar trait of in
capacity, so that on your unpopular ship,
be sho t ramp steamer or eke weeping wind
jammer, yon do not get much pick of a
crew. You have to put up with what oth
er pooplo have left, and .it does not tako
you long to learn that your beauties have
not ueen rejected for their excellencies.
It was thi way on tho Port Etles. For
ward and a't, engine hold and pantry.
each man on board of her had his private
ea lamng. lie: ween tnem they lacked
wakefulness, eyesight, decision, strength
of fist, strength of language, seamanship
ana common sobriety. Among tho deck
hands there were virulent sea lawyers; In
tho stoke holds then: were ames dnmnces
wanted by several governments. The en
gineers wero skillful in gaining tho small
est possible knottogo per toa .( coal; the
mates were all slipshod navigators, iim
trustworthy even to correct a compass ui:d
useless to drivo a truculent crew."
Over all was Owen Kettle, master mar

dumped their belongings into their vari
