THE FLOATING BODY.
In these name seas in which the Queen
was sailing, in the year, in the mouth,
nay in the week in which that bark had
been seized, a motherly, lubberly old
black brig was flapping and rolling
along at the gray of day. She stolo out
in all her fat and homely proportions a.
the light grew, brightening upon her
and sheeting the sea to l:cr tall black
beam in n pale tremble of mackerel
gleams and bright slate out of the far
northeast. No beauty was she, yet as
good as a line of battle ship for a drift
ing boat to fall in with, aud this thought
was in the mind of the mate, Mr. Har
dy, as he stood at the starboard rail
abreast of the little binnacle box and
with folded arms surveyed the scene of
ocean slowly opening to its most deso
Mr. Hardy was a stout, short man,
with an incomparable, leering blue eye.
His eyes leered, but he knew it not, and
the effect was good when his businesH
was solemn. He had tho face of the
born comedian, arch, dry, the whole
fabric of the liueameuts set slightly
awry ; he was burned up by the sun,
and his noso was so coated with adhe
sive membrane that as the light broad
ened the feature gleamed toward the
rising sun as thongh it were sheathed
in a purse or coating of liuely wrought
mail He was wrapped up in a weather
bronzed monkey jacket, and his head
was protected by a round hat of colonial
invention. His trousers, tight at the
hips, fell like the mouth of a church
bell to his feet, which were cased in
shoes decorated with bows. A sea dog I
Rubicund with the grog blossom, but a
bit of a sea dandy, too, for perhaps no
man afloat in that year of our salvation
would have deliberately bought himself
a pair of shoes with bows and gone to sea
to stand fine weather watches in them.
As Mr. Hardy took a step forward to
obtain a critical view of the fore royal,
whtxie halyards, be was thinking, want
ed another small pull now that daylight
disclosed the brig, there emerged stoop
ing through the shabby companion hoed
just before the guu a hearty figure of a
stouter bulk than Mr. Hardy, dressed
in a naval cap, a suit of dungaree and
a check shirt.
This person was Commander Bol
dock, R. N. , a man with a huge face, of
aoarlet flesh, in the midst of which spar
kled two good humored gray eyes. His
bead was disproportioncd. It belonged
to a giant. His mouth, his teeth, bis
ears, whatever grew above n.o i..icrat,
lilliputianized tho rest cf him. His
friends feared that he had water on th"
brain. The ill natured, however, railed
it whisky and witter. It was suro yon

Mr. Hardy's salute, then looked aloft
at the spread of sail, then round upon
the sea, then took a survey of the unu
at the little wheel, and, stopping over
to Mr. Hardy, exclaimed in a hoarse,
deep voice that seemed to perpetually
complain, with an odd note of remon
strance: "Light airs, light airs. Nothing but
light airs in these heavens."
"What's that out there, sir?" inter
rupted Mr. Hardy, peering and leering
on a sudden ever tho edge of the tall rail
at the sea on the weather bow, where
the water was flowing with a look of
blue silk shot with the morning lights.
The commander went to the rail and
likewise peered and stared. He caught
the object in a breath whisky or no
whisky, Boldock rolled the vision of a
hawk in his sockets and fell a-dodging
it under the sharp ef bis hand.
"Why," says he after a minnte or
two, "I do believe I do believe"
then breaking off, "Mr. Hardy, be so
good as to hand me the glass. "
The mate unshipped a heavv. Ions.
brass telescope off its brackets under the !
companion hood and bore it with both .
linds to the commander, who laid it '
like a piece of artillery upon the rail I
and. put hia eye to it, as though sighting '
some object he meant to destroy. He '
looked, puffed, removed his eye and
dried it, looked again and then cried
"Why, by heavens, Mr. Hardy, it's
the body of a woman, and a white wom
an! And she appears to be gassed. What
-Tffif -" BSmiBLW vaa I ttrkn, o i j i J ii...ii ..iJ I . . ., .... I - - - -.-,-
can that be over tier month?" He looked
again. "Her hair is floating out from
her head like ink f torn a galleyed cuttle
fish. Look for yourself. "
And while Mr. Hardy was looking
Commander Boldock told the man at
the wheel to put his helm over so as to
bring the object almost directly ahead.
"Eh, Mr. Hardy, "he exclaimed in
his deep sea voice, "isn't she a woman?
Isn't she white? Don't she look alive?"
"She positively breathes. But it's the
motion of the sea," answered Mr. Har
dy, keeping his eye glued to tho glass.
"We'll make a little call yonder and
ask a few questions," said the com
mander. "Let the men knock off wash
ing down. Stand by, to back your iiiniu
topsail, and swing that starboard boat
there over the side. "
The brig slowly drove down, and all
the people who could see over the side
kept their eyes fastened npnu the float
ing object. It was Ftraugo to meet such
a sight as that upon the wide sea hun
dreds of miles from land.
The brig came to a halt, rolling clum
sily upon the subtle underswell of that
beautiful morning ocean. By this time
one of the plump quarter boats had been
lifted out of her chocks and now dan
gled ready for lowering at the ends of
her immensely thick wooden davits. A
boat's crew stood by. Commander Bol
dock and Mr. Hardy gazed over the side.
The body, :is the long, brass telescope
had before determined, was a female's,
and a very fine figure of a woman, the
commander thought it looked, as it
slightly rose and fell with the light
ar.ure wrinkles of the water, tremblii:c
in sobs to it. The loose arms waved
with tho motion of the water as though
that niidocean sleeper appealed for peace
or help. The dark hair clouded off in a
soft, gloomy mass close nnder the blue
surface. A gag of some sort concealed
"I don't know that she can be alive, "
said the commander in his hoarse, deep,
remonstrating voice, "with that thing
tied round her breathing apparatus."
"Maybe her nostrils ride clear," said
Mr. Hardy, leering.
"Then go and bring her aboard,"
said the commander. "She shall have a
chance for her life, and if she's dead
we will bury her decently. "
The boat sank, the oars flashed, in a
minute or two Mr. Hardy was along
side tho floating woman. They used ex
treme caution, guessing that a tap from
an oar or a sea put in motion by the
boat might sink the body. Two sailors
leaned over and the lubberly tub of a
boat leaned, too, with a pretty sparkle
of her bilge to the sun m she raised it
with the brine.
Grasping the body with their fish
hooks of fingers, the Jacks tossed it
aboard, soaking and streaming like a
thunder shower. It was then laid in
the stern sheets, and the boat made for
the brig. While this was doing Mr.
Hardy pulled out a sharp clasp knife
and cut away the gag. She bad good
features, lint she was ghastly to horror's
own degree in that searching light ow
ing to tho eyeballs showing like slips of
china betwixt the liris, and to the lips
being almost pale as the cheeks through
compression of the ligature. The appar
el was very scanty, consisting, so far as
Mr. Hardy could make out. of a dress
ing gown over a flannel petticoat and a
woman's ordinary nightelothcs. Her
feet were naked very pretty little feet
they were, Mr. Hardy thought. Doubt
less they had been slippered when the
roor creature for some murderous mo
tive or other had been sent adrift.
"It looks to me," exclaimed Mr.
Hardy, gazing up at the commander,
whose immense roasted face, overhang
ing the rail, was reflected in the smooth
water as though H had BOM the moon,
"as if there had been some piratical
business on down here, sir."
' Bring her aboard, bring her abrard,"
exclaimed the commander, stiffening
his figure and sending a look liasild the
ocean with a man-of-war's man's sniff.
In fact, the mere thought of it whifsai
fifty new pulses into his sturdy shape.
They uu3hipped the gangway, and
with that sort of reverence which good
sailers will exhibit toward the dead
nd more particularly toward those of
the dead who might have btv:i moth
ers, wives, sisters and sweethearts in
this world a few of the Jacks of tho
brig Wellesley hauded the body aft rod
with pains and patience down the nar
row companion ladder.
"Trim sail, Mr. Hardy," said Com
mander Boldock : "then crme below and
let me have your opinion. "
Two middle sized cabins were situated
under the wheel. The hotly of the wom
an was carried into the pert cabin, the
starboard berth being the commander's,
and very tenderly laid upon a locker.
The men who had brought her below
stood eff, while Commander Boldock
drew close to peer into the face that
looked cold and bard as granite.
"This scorns a case of murder. " said
the commander, apparently thinking
'Beg pardon, your honor,' paid one
of the seamen, touching hie forehead, a
homely, middle aged, good natured sail

of yellow oakum dangling at his chin,
"that body's not been long in the wa

mander, whipping his great fact round
upon him sharp and eager.

Adams? ' sua mo eommanaer.
"What should be done then?" said
Boldock complainingly. "If you have
any knowledge of this sort of thing,
turn to. I'd not have her die upon our
hands after saving her life."
The shoes and bell shaped legs of Mr.
Hardy fluttered in the companion way,
and down came the whole man.
"Adams thinks she may be alive,"
said the commander.
"She's got to be dried srd wrapped
in blankets first of all." said Mr. Har
dy, after taking a short but earnest
view of the face, "and then artificial
respiration might be attempted. What
d'yoa say, Adams?"
"That's it, sir. And perhaps a spoon
ful of rum to lie at the back of the
throat wouldn't hurt?"
"Then heave ahead," said Command
It seemed a hopeless undertaking, but
these bronzed and blunted children of
the brine knew very well, with Horatio
Nelson, that at sea nothing is impossible
and nothing improbable a maxim that
should ever be the philosophy of British
sea affairs. Commander Boldock look
ed on. Mr. Hardy and Adams did the
work. They stripped to their shirts, for
it was mighty hot in that little cabin,
and first they dried her, and they then
wrapped her np in a blanket, and then
they got Adams' prescription of rum
between her lips and proceeded to artifi
cially inflate the lnugs. They rolled her
on this side, then on that, then over,
then back again. Adams seemed to
know his bnsiness.
"It might take two hours," said Mr.
Hardy, with the sweat running like
tears down his face.
"Keep all on," said Commander
Boldock, deeply interested. "I wish I
could fist her as yon do. I'll tell yon

"I believe the man's right, sir," said
Mr. Hardy as he gently drove the body
toward the bulkheads for Adams to
drive back again.

saved her life, sir," said Adams, feel
ing himself entitled under the circum
stances to be loquacious. "It stopped
the water from flowing into her mouth. "
"Hard to realize a live body floating

"She looks fresh," exclaimed the

voice, ' 'until you're both cocksure it's

look in on you again soon. "
He went out and trudged up the steps.
' 'Jump aloft a hand and report any
thing in sight," he called out.
A man sprang into the fore shrouds
and as nimbly as though he had been
hoisted with a run gained the royal yard
and stood holding by the truck, careful

trembled against the blue and the figure

something clean and brightly painted
out ot a box. just the object for a boy
ro fix in the stern sheets of his little
boat; yet a real man's deep baas voice
floated down from the heights altera

sought the remote liquid confines again

nothing in sight, and so down he came
on the royal backstay, enlarging as he
grew like a descending lark out of the
speck it makes till he leaped, a man to
the eye, off the bulwark rail.
"Where the dickens." thought the
commander, "has that body come from?
How long has it been in the water?
Why was she gagged?' '
He took a number of turns upon his
quarter deck, deeply musing. Presently
the scent of fried ham penetrated his
nose, and the steward came out of the
little galley bearing the cabin breakfast.
"Send the bos u aft," called the

Boldock'e ears. Uood heavens, could it

The boy was taught, from the earliest
awakening of his reasoning powers, that
truth was to be told and to be respected
and that nothing was more wicked or
more ungentlemanly than a broken
promise. He learned very early to do as
he was told and not to do, under any
consideration, what he bad said he would
not da Upon this last point he was
strictly conscientious, although once,
literally, he "beat about the bush."
His Aunt Margaret, always devoted to
plants and to flowers, had. cm the back
stoop of his grandfather's house, a little
grove of orange and lemon tress in pots.
Some one of these was usually in fruit
or in flower, and the fruit to the boy
was a great temptation. He was very
fond of oranges, and it seemed to bim
that a "homemade" orange, which ho
bad never tasted, must be much better
than a grocer's orange, a homemade
cake was certainly preferable even to
the wonderful cakes marie by tho pro
fessional Mrs. Milderberger.
He watched those little green oranges
from day to day as they gradually grew
big and yellow in the sun. Ha promised
faithfully that he would not pick any,
but he had a notion that some of tlicra
might drop off. He never shook the trees,

he did not shake it off. He compromised
