CII AFTER VII.
TTYTTTALKER was about to take I
lyAI her to the salon, whence an I
y u Inner staircase communicat
ed with the principal state
rooms, but she knew that the door
leading to tho promenade deck had
been left unlocked, so she signaled him
to lead her the speediest way. Speak
Bhe could not. Although there was a
perceptible improvement in the gath
er, Elsie found the wind even harder to
combat than when she traversed the
deck with Courtenay. This' apparent
contradiction arose from the fact that
during their early dealing with tho
boats the sailors had cut away the
greater part of the canvas shield rig
ged to protect passengers from adven
Nevertheless, all flustered and breath
less as she was, she held Walker back
when he would have left her in the
abater of her cabin.
To spare ne one moment," she
pleaded. "When I have put on dry
clothing, what am I to do? Where
am I to to go? I will do anything
rather than remain alone."
Walker Jammed himself in the door
way to break the violence of the un
ceasing deluge of spray.
"Well, missie," he said, "I'm examin
ing the engines, MIstaw Tollemache is
fi-wlng up the donkey boiler, and Doc
taw Chwistobal is with Mistaw Boyle.
You know whe-aw the captain ls so I

prompt assurance. "You'd bettaw

"Tell him? Are you returning to the
"Telephone!" shouted Walker as an
unusually heavy sea caused him to
slam the door unceremoniously. He
bolted tt too. Not if be could help It
would his charge come out on that
storm swept deck unattended.
The electric light glowed brightly in
Elsie's cabin, exactly as she had left It
an hour ago. This was one of the
anomalous conditions of the dleaster.
It lent a queer sense of midsummer
madness to the night's doings. In
a few days it would be Christmas,
the Christmas of sunshine aud flow
ers known only to that lesser por
tion of the habitable earth south of
the line. In Valparaiso the weather
was. 'stifling,, yet here, not so very far
away, it was bitterly cold. And the
ship was driving headlong to destruc
tion, though electric bells and switches
were at command in a luxuriously fur
nished apartment, while the engineer
had just spoken of the telephone as a
means of conversing with the captain.
Away down in her feminine heart the
girl wondered why Courtenay himself
had not come to her. Why had he sent
Chrlstobal first and Walker subse
quently? Oh, of. course he hadjnore
urgent matters' to attend to, though In
the helpless condition of the ship It was
difficult to appreciate their precise de
grees, of importance.'
Anyhow, he had sent word that she
was to change her clothes, and he must
be obeyed, as Dr. Chrlstobal said. Then
she discovered as a quite new and
physically disagreeable fact that her
Bklrts were soaked up to her knees,
while ! her blouse was almost In the
same condition owing to the quantity
of spray which had rii down Inside
her thick ulster. She busied herself In
procuring fresh clothing aud boots.
The outcome of the pleasant feeling of
warmth and comfort was such as the

Boyle had thrown tablecloths over the
bodies of men slain in the salon, for
Gray and Tollemache had sternly but
vainly striven to repress the second re
volt. Tollemache and Walker bad
dragged out of the smothering spray
near the port davits three men who
seemed to t.e merely stunned. These,
with the chief officer and perhaps four
survivors of the explosion, made up the
list of living but noneffective members,
of the ship's company. There was one
other, Gufllelmo Frascuelo. who was
bawling for dear life in his bunk In
the forecastle, but in that davk hour no
one chanced to remember him, and It
needed more than a human voice to
pit itself against the hurricane which
roared over the vessel. The uuhappy
wretch knew that something out of the
ordinary had taken place, and he was
Beared half out of his wits by the con
tinued absence of the crew. Luckily
for himself, he did not appreciate the
real predicament of the ship or he
would have raved himself into mad
Walker in his brief catalogue of oc
cupations had suppresstrl one. To
make sure Christobal closed a water
tight bulkhead door which cut off the
principal staterooms from the salon
Then he and his two helpers carried
out a painful but necessary task. It
was his duty to certify whether or not
life was extinct. There were very few
exceptions. The three men lifted the
bodies and threw them overboard.
When they reached the corpses of the
second officer and a Spanish engineer
who had been knifed in the defense of
the Jolly boat his comrade had scram
bled into one of the lifeboats Tolle
mache took possession of such money,
documents and valuables as were in
their pockets, Intending to draw up an

Though they knew not the moment
when a sickening crash would herald
the final dissolution of the ship, they
proceeded with their work methodic
ally. In half an hour they had reached
the end. All the Injured men seven
nondescript sailors and firemen were
carried to the salon and placed under
Chrlstobal's care. Walker dived below
to the engine room, where be had al

bent by the fracture of a guard ring.
which In turn was injured by the
blowing out of a Junk ring, a stout
ring of forged steel secured to one of
the pistons. He could do nothing more
on deck. Whether he was destined to
live fifty seconds or as many years, he
was ill content to hear his beloved en
gines knocking themselves to pieces
with each roll of the ship.
Tollemache, who undertook the fir
ing of the donkey boiler, which was
situated on the main deck aft of the
salon for the Kansas was built
chiefly to accommodate cargo during
bis wanderings round the world had
picked up sufficient knowledge of
steam power, to shovel fuel Into. the
furnace and regulate the water level
by the feed valve and pump. The small
engine, more reliable and quite as pow
erful as a hundred men, was in perfect
order. ' ..
The Kansas rolled heavily. The roll
was caused by an experimental twist
of the wheel. Courtenay, peering into
the darkness through the open window
of the chart house, saw that the weath
er was clearing, s He had evolved
theory, and, for want of a better, be
was determined to pursue it to n finish.
The Kansas was being swiftly carried
along in a strong and deep tidal cur
rent. Happily the wind followed the
set of. the aea, else there would be no
chance of success for his daring plan
Ills expedient was the desperate one
of keeping the vessel In the line of the
current, and if day broke before he
reached the coast he would steer for
any opening wtdch presented itself In
the fringe of reef which must assur
edly guard the mainland. ;v
' With his hands grasping the taut
and In one sense irresponsive mechan
ism of a steering wheel coverned bv

ment of his ship, a seaworthy vessel
being a living thing, obedient as" a doc
ile horse to the least touch of the rein
But in the unlikely event of fortune
favoring Courtenay to the extent of
giving him an opportunity to aee the
coining Hanger u was essential umt
of action apart fronTthe direction" and
force of the ocean stream. The two
sails were helpful, and It was to as
sure himself of their efficiency that he
put the helm to, starboard. The Kan
sas obeyed with an answering roll to
port, showing clearly that she was
traveling a little faster han the in-
rushing tide would take Tier unaided.
He brought her head back to nor'east
again and glanced over his shoulder at
the ship's chronometer. It was a quar
ter to 1. Two hours must pass before
he would discern the first faiDt streaks
of light. At any rate. If he were spared
to greet the dawn It would be right
ahead, and, as1 a few seconds might
then be of utmost value, that was a
small point in his favor. Yet, two
hours! Could he dare to hope for bo
long a respite? How could the ship
escape the unnumbered fangs which a
storm torn land thrust far out into the
Pacific for its own protection?
He was quite sheltered from the
wind and spray in the chart house, and
all at once he became aware of a burn
ing thirst There was water in a de
canter close at hand, so he indulged In
long drink. That was wonderfully
vivifying. Then his mind turned long
ingly .to tobacco. For the first time in
his life he broke the strict rule of the
service In which he had been trained
and smoked a cigar while on duty.
Now and again he spoke cheerily to
Well, Joey, here we are; still got a
bark In us!" or "You --jj i must have

Courtenay and pup; details uncertain.

again: "I suppose your friend. Miss
Maxwell, is asleep by this time. If she
calls you Joay, do yon call her Elsie?
rather fancy Elsie as a name. What
do you think?" To all of which the
dog, who bad found a dry corner,
would respond with a smile and a tail

have broken many a man's nerve, but

whistled, be hummed snatches of
songs and delivered short lectures to
Joey on the absurdity of things In gen
eral and the special ridiculousness of
such a mighty combination of circum
stances centering on one poor ship as
had foregathered to crush the Kansas.
Ever since he was aroused from sleep
by the stopping of the screw his mind
bad dwelt on the unprecedented nature
of the breakdown. Even before be dis
covered its cause he was wondering
what evil chance had contrived to crip
ple the engine at such a moment in
the worst possible place on the map

ears and looked toward the door.

he had wiped the spray off his face,

He is much better now. Under ordinary

Christobal waved a hand toward the
external void. He was not sailor
enough to realize the change In the
"That is good news," said Courtenay.
"I thought you would like to know,

brave man, he thought such persistent
optimism was out of place. Neverthe

ied that she was heading a couple of
points eastward. He helped her and
telephoned Instantly to Walker:
'Go forward and try If ' you can
make out anything.- Report to me

! anon Walker appeared.
'It's main thick ahead, sir, but I

"I thought so. You had better re

was ready for a chat. - '
'Things are iu a dweadful mess be

'Well, that must wait Don't talk.
Kleep a sharp lookout."
The engineer could not guess that
the captain's pulse was beating a trifle
more rapidly with a certain elntion.
They were undoubtedly passing White
Horse island. It revealed Its presence
by deflecting the tremendous Bea river
which ferried the Kansas onward at
such a rate. In fifteen or twenty min
utes Courtenay expected to find Indica
tions of n more northerly set of the
tide, and he watched the compass In
tently for the first sign of this return
to the former course. If the ship cross
ed the current one way or the other
she would certainly be driven- ashore
on some outlying spur of the island or
detached sunken reef; hence he must
actually guess his way, with some
thing of the acquired sense of the
blind, because the slight chance of ulti
mate escape for the ship and her occu
pants rested wholly on the assumption
that some ocean byway was leading
her to a deep water inlet, where It
might be possible to drop the anchor.
In eighteen minutes or thereabouts
the needle moved slightly. Courtenay
once more assisted the ship with the
helm. She steadied herself, and the
ccrapass pointed due northeast again.
Walker, though an engineer, knew
enough of navigation to rseognlze the
apparent Impossibility of the captain
'Uy OodxW-ah on thi vcockt ! "
being able to steer with any real
knowledge of his surroundings. The
wheel twisting therefore savored of
magic. But his orders were to look
ahead, and he obeyed.
Soon he thought he, could discern an
Irregular pink crescent, with the con
cave side downward, somewhere in the
blackness beyond the bows. Speedily
It was- joined by two others equally
irregular and somewhat lower.
"Captain, d'ye see yon?" he asked In
a voice tremulous with awe.
"Yes. --That is the sun Just catching
the summits of snow topped bills. It
not only foretells the dawn, but Is a
sign of fiTte weather. There are no
clouds over the land or we should not
see the peaks."
Ere long a silver gray light began to
dispel the. gloom. - Jhe - two silent
watchers first saw it overhead, and the
vast dome of day . Bwiftly widened
over the vexed sea. T'ae aftermath of
the storm spread a ln, C- nse cloak or
vapor all round. The wind had fallen
so greatly that they could hear the
song of the rigging.. Soon they could
distinguish the outlines of the heavy
rollers near at band, and Courtenay
believed that the ship in her passage
encountered In the water several nar
row bands of a bright red color. If
this were so, he knew that the phe
nomenon was caused by the prawn
like Crustacea which sailors call
"whale food," a Bure sign of deep wa
ter close to land and, further, an Indi
cation that the current was still flow
ing strongly, while the force of the
sea must have been broken many miles
Suddenly lie turned to Walker.
"Dotyoa think you could fihln np to
the masthead?" be asked. .
"I used to be able to climb a bit, sir."
"Well, try the foremast tip there I
am fairly certain you can see over this
bank of mist Don't get Into trouble.
Come back If you feel you can't man
age it. If yon succeed, take the best
observations possible and report
Courtenay was becoming anxious
now. If he dared let go the wheel he
, would have climbed the mast himself.
I Walker set about his mission in a
' businesslike manner. . He threw off his
thick coat and' boots and went for
ward. Halfway up the mast there was
a rope ladder for the use of the sailors
when adjusting pulleys.
The rest of the journey was not dlffl
' cult for an athletic man, and Walker
was quickly an Indistinct figure In the
fog. He gained the truck all right and
instantly yelled something. Courtenay
fancied he said:
"My .God, wje-ftj) pn .tlifi.iCQCJiflC-i .
Dieting is starvation, to an extent Your body re
quires many kinds of food, and to limit the variety
means to rob some part. Eat' what you need of the
food that you want, for Kodol will surely digest it.
. Leave the cure of Dyspepsia to Nature. But give
Nature a chance.
Stop the pain immediately, for pain means that
undigested food is irritating the stomach lining.
And that lining, which is always inflamed in dys
pepsia, will never get right while it is constantly
Stop the formation of gas, which comes from
fermenting food. Stop the impurity which Is fed
to the blood by the food that decays. Supply your
self with plenty of nourishment. For recovery de

the stomach rest
All that is done by Kodol by digesting the food
that you eat For Kodol is a perfect digester.
You will say, perhaps, that you have tried di
gesters before. But you are mistaken.
You may have tried pepsin, but pepsin digests
only albumen. You may have tried any of numer
ous preparations which digest part of the food.
But Kodol alone digests all of the food. It is
the only way to do all that the digestive organs can do,
when they are perfectly strong.
And the results are immediate. Kodol is liquid,
like the digestive juices. Its action begins as soon
as It enters the stomach. ,
You don't want to always depend on artificial
digesters. We understand that
But you must help the stomach while the stom

Whatever it' was," Walker " did nol
wait, but slid downward with such
speed that it was fortunate the rig
ging barred his progress.
And then, even while Courtenay was
shouting some explanation, a great
black wall rose out of the deep on the
port bow. It was a pinnacle rock high
as the ship's masts, but only a few
feet wide at sea level, and the Kansas
sped past this ugly monitor as though
it were a buoy in a well marked chan
nel. Courtenay heard the sea breaking
against it. The ship could not have
been more than, sixty feet distant a
little more than her own beam, aud be
fully expected that she would grind
against some outlier in the next iu
Btant But the Kansas had a charmed
life. She ran on unscathed and seem
ed to be traveling in smoother water
after this escape.
Walker's dark skin was the color of
parchment when he reached the chart
"Captain," he said weakly, "I'll do
owt wl' engines, but I'm no good at
this geme. That thing fairly banged
me. Did ye see It?"
"Did you see land?" demanded Cour

with each of these thrills. He felt that

Saves you trouble in
Help is a thousand times more Important, when
the stomach is weak. For imperfect digestion
means that you don't get food.
Let the stomach rest for a time, just as you must
rest when you wish to recuperate. That Is all that
is necessary and all that you can do.
Kodol alone contains all the digestive elements.
And they are there in sufficient strength.
A tablespoonful, taken after a meal, is enough to
digest it completely.
This has often been proved by adding Kodol to
food in a test tube. Keep the food moving, and
keep the temperature right, just as the stomach
does. Any sort of food, or any combination of
foods, will be completely digested.
Pepsin alone won't do that. Other digesters,
won't do it The only way to possibly do this is
by the use of Kodol.
You may prove, without the risk of a penny,
what Kodol can do. Buy one large bottle, and ask
your druggist for the signed guarantee. If the re
sults are not satisfactory, take the empty bottle
back and your druggist will return your money.
This offer is made on the large bottle only,
and to but one in a family. That will amply prove
how much Kodol means to you. Then please tell
your friends who need this help how easy it is to
