CHAPTER L On the steamer Kan
sas, leaving -Valparaiso for England,
are Miss Elsie Maxwell, fleeing- from
the unwelcome attentions of Pedro
Ventana, and Miss Isobel Baring.
Among the other passengers Is Count
Edouard de Poncilit. The two girls be
come interested in Captain Courtenay,
the commander of the Kansas, and in
Joey, his fox terrier. Courtenay is com
pelled to shoot a Chilean who has tried
to knife Chief Officer Boyle.
CHAPTER II. The Chilean. Frascu
ela, a coal passer, tells of having been
drugged and thrown into the ship's
hold before her departure from Valpar
aiso. His wound, which is not serious,
is attended to by Dr. Chrlstobal, a pas
senger. At night the Kansas runs into
a heavy storm, during which an ex-
plosion in the englnee room Is heard.
CHAPTER III. Courtenay tells the
passengers that the ship is in peril, and
the boats are made ready. The gravest
danger to the vessel and its passengers
is from mutiny by the Chilean crew
CHAPTER IV. The explosion has
killed and wounded several nrernen and
wrecked the ship's engines. Drifting
helplessly, the Kansas strikes a reef 20
miles from the perilous Chilean coast.
CHAPTER V. Courtenay, with Gray
and Tollemache, two of the passengers,
overawes a mob of stewards and kitch
en hands, but in a struggle for the
boats Boyle is badly hurt. Isobel,
crazed with terror of the storm, mys
tittes Elsie by calling her an emissary
of Ventana. Elsie is lert behind by ac
cident when the other women passen
gers are taken off the Kansas in one of
CHAPTER VI. Elsie accidentally
sees part of a letter addressed to the
captain. In it the unknown writer re
fers to "the woman destined to be your
wife." Elsie, Courtenay, Chrlstobal, an
engineer named Walker, and Tolle
mache, with some wounded men, among
them Boyle and Frascuelo, are compell
ed to remain on the Kansas, all the
boats being gone or smashed. The
steamer floats clear of the reef.
CHAPTER VII. In the dark the
Kansas drifts 'on to an unknown des
tination, but Courtenay disco wi-s at
dawn that land is near.
CHAPTER VIII. After drifting into
a narrow fiord, the Kansas drops
anchor, and Courtenay sets Walker to
-repairing the engines. The vessel is
attacked by savages.
yikUICKLY as Elsie had reached
if ll the eck' tne war,ik sounds
y which disturbed her rest had
r!S ceased. Save, for the foot
steps of men whom she could not see,
the prevalent noises were caused only
by wind and sleet While she was hur
rying forward as rapidly as the dark
ness permitted, the lights were switch
ed on with a suddenness that made her
gasp. The dog began to' bark again,
bat It was easy to distinguish his sharp
yelps of excitement and defiance from
the earlier notes of alarmed suspicion.
In fact, Joey himself was the first to
discover the stealthy approach of the
Indians. Courtenay and Tollemache,
who took the middle watch, from mid
night to 4 a. m., had failed to note the
presence of several canoes on the ink
black surface of the bay until the dog
warned them by growling and ruffling
the bristles on his back. The night
was pitch dark. The moon was not
only hidden by the hills of the island,
bnt frequent storms of tain and bail
rendered it impossible while they
raged to see or hear beyond the dis
tance of a few feet.
In all probability as the canoes bore'
down from windward Joey had scent
ed them. He also gave the highly Im
portant Information as to the quarter
from which attack might be expected.
Three men at least had gained the
deck, but the prompt use of a revolver
had caused them to retreat as silently
and speedily as they bad appeared.
THn Vila all T'llai.A tit o a t.si nnrnnl
fight. The phantoms vanished as si
lently as they came. The only exter
nal lights on the ship were the mast
head and side lights hoisted by Courte
nay . to reveal the steamer's where
a bouts In case one of the boats chanced
to be driven Into the bay during the
dark hours. There was an electric
lamp turned on in the donkey engine
room and another in the main salon,
' but means were" taken to exclude them
from showing without. If the Indians
meant to be actively hostile, lights on
board would be more helpful to the
assailants than to the assailed.
When the captain and Tollemache
followed Joey's lead, they discerned
three demoniac figures vaguely outlined
by the ruddy glare of the port light in
the very act of climbing the rails.
They fired Instantly, and the naked
forms vanished. Both men thought
they heard the splashing caused by the
. leaping or falling of the Indians into
the sea. By the same subdued radi
ance Conrtenay made out the top of a
pole or. mast sticking up close to the
ship's side. He leaned over, fired a
couple of shots downward at random,'
seized the pole and . lashed it to a
stanchion with a loose rope end, a
remnant of one of the awnings. A
small craft, even an Indian canoe,
wonld be most useful,' and Its capture
might tend to scare the attackers.

was manifest that none beyond those

the risk of being shot at, Courtenay or

A woman's logic Is apt to be irritat

"For goodness' sake, stand here,

compelling her to shelter behind the
heavy molding which carried the
bridge. Then he quitted her for a
moment In order to dispatch a Chilean
sailor for a lantern and a long cord.
lie wished to Investigate the captured
The lantern was brought. Courtcnay
stood on the lowermost rail and care
fully paid out a rope to which the
light was slung, lie was far too brave
a man to take undue risks. He was
ready to shoot instantly If need be,
and by his instructions Tollemache
and Walker kept Match as best they
could In case other canoes were lying
close to the ship.
Any doubt in this regard was dis
pelted in a singular manner. The flick
ering rays of the lantern had barely
revealed the primitive craft lying
alongside when a voice came from the
depths, crying in broken Spanish:
"Dou't shoot, senors! Spare me, for
the love of heaven! I am a white man
Chrlstobal and Elsie alone understood
the exact significance of the words,
Courtenay of course knew what lan
guage was being spoken, and It was
easy to guess the nature of the appeal,
Iut the lantern showed that the ca
noe was empty. In the center lay the
Fuegian fire, its embers covered with
a small hide. The pole, fastened to a
crossplece in the thwarts, was not a
mast, but had evidently been shipped
in order to give speedy access to the
deck by climbing.
Then Courtenay caught sight of two
hands clinging to the stern of the ca
lie swung the lantern in that
direction, and an extraordinary and
even an affrighting object became vis
ible. A caricature of a human head
was raised slightly above the level of
tie water. It was crowned by a shock
of coarse black knotted hair tied
back from the brows by a fillet of
white feathers. An intensely black
face, crossed by two bars of red and
white pigment, reaching from ear to
ear and covering eyelids, nose and
Hps, was upturned to the watchers
from the deck. The colors were vivid
enough notwithstanding the sheets of
rain which blew In gusts against the
ship's side, dimming the dull light of
a storm proof lamp, to convey a most
uncanny effect. Nor did Courtenay re
move either" his eyes or the revolver
while he said to Chrlstobal:
"Ask him who he Is and what be

"Have the Indians gone?" asked
"Yes. They thought to surprise you
When they, come again It will be by
daylight,, as. they are afraid of the
dark. But be quick, I Implore yon. My
bands are numb."
There was no resisting the man's ap
peal. A rope ladder was lowered, and
a Chilean sailor went down In obe
dience to the captain's order, though
he disliked the Job and crossed him
self before descending. He passed a
rope under the fugitive's armpits and
with aid from the deck hoisted him
aboard. The unfortunate miner gave
proof of his wretched state by prompt
ly collapsing in a faint, with a sigh of
His only garments were a species of
waistcoat and rough trousers of un
tanned guanaco hide. The white skin
of his breast and legs, though darken
ed by exposure, showed that he had
told the truth as to his descent not
withstanding the amazing daubs on his
face. His hah, stiffened, with black
grease, stood out all around his head,
and the same oily composition had
been used to blacken his forehead,
neck and bands.
Some brandy and hot water, com
bined with the warmth of the salon,
soon revived him- He ate a Quantity
of bread with the eagerness of a man
suffering from starvation.
Chrlstobal brought him to the chart
house, where most of the others were
assembled,, and there questioned him.
It was a most astonishing story
which Francisco Suarea, gold miner
and prospector, laid before an exceed
ingly; attentive audience. As the man
epoke so did he recover the freer usage
of a .civilized tongue. At first his
words had a hoarse, guttural sound.
but Dr. Christobal's questions seemed
to awaken dormant memories, and or,
cry one noticed, not least those , who
had small knowledge of Spanish, .that
be had practically recovered command
of the language at the end of half an
And this was what he told them
He, with these partners and a tew In
dians from the pampas, had set out on
a gold prospecting expedition on the
headwaters of the Gallegos river.
They were disappointed In their search
until they crossed . the ' cordillera and
sighted the gloomy, shores of Last
Hope Inlet leading into Smyth chan
nel. There they , found alluvial sand
and cold bearing quartz, yielding but
poor results. Unfortunately some na
tives assured them that the metal they
sought abounded In Hanover island.
They obtained canoes, voyaged down
the long inlet crossed the strait and
struck inland toward the unknown
mountains beyond the swamps' of El
len bay. -
After endurinsr ail the hardshtos en
tailed by life hi such a wild country
they .blundered Into a gully where a
brief analysis of the detritus gave .a
result per ton which was' not to be
measured by ounces, but by pounds.
White men and Indians alike caught
the fever. . They accumulated a use
less board, having no means to trans
port other than their own backs, and
thou, all precautions being relaxed, the
nomad Indians, whom they despised,
rushed the camp when they were sleep
ing. Tbey were nearly all killed by
stones shot from slings. Suarez was
only stunned, and he and a Spaniard,
with two Indians, were reserved for

'Because they have guns and can
use them," was the .appalling answer
given by Sunrez. "They secured the
rifles belonging to my party, and one
of them who had often seen ship's offi
cers shooting wild geese understood
the method of loading and aiming.
They will not waste the cartridges on

as they hold the gun away from the
shoulder, but they can cast a heavy
pebble from a sling quite as far and
almost as straight as a revolver can
"How do they know the ship will not
sail at once?" demanded Courtenay.
Suarez laughed hysterically with the
mirth which Is akin to tears when the
query was explained to him. He look
ed bizarre enough under ordinary con
ditions, but laughter converted him In-
to, a fair semblance of one .of those
bloodcurdling demons which a Japa

his powers as a conjurer.
"It is as much as a canoe can manage
In fine weather to reach the island out
there, which, tbey call Seal island," he
cried, pointing toward the locality of
White Horse island. "Even the In
dians were astonished to see so big a
ship anchored here safely. They have
watched plenty of wrecks outside, and
hardly anything comes ashore. At any
rate, they are quite sure you cannot go
It would be Idle to deny that the
Spaniard's words sent a chill of ap
prehension down the spines of some of
those present, but the captain said
Where a ship is concerned, If she
can enter on the flood she can go out
on the ebb. How came you to escape
Tears stood again In Suarez's eyes
as he replied:
; "When I beard their plan I imagined
they would be driven off, provided, a
watch were kept 1 resolved to risk all
in the attempt to reach the company
of civilized men once more. I do not
care what the outcome may be. If I
can. help you to overcome them, I am
ready to do so; If not I will die by
your side. Tonight I followed In a ca
noe unseen. When I heard the shoot
ing I leaped overboard and -swam to
the ship. It was lucky for me some
one seized the canoe which I found
there. The men in her bad to swim to
other canoes, and two were wounded,
t heard them say. This cansed some
confusion, and I had something to
grasp when I reached the ship; other,
wise I must have been drowned, as the
water was very, cold." .
"Can- you speak the Alacnlof . lan
guage?" . . , .;.
"Is that what you call them? Their
own name for the tribe la the Teath
$red People because .'.all their chief
men and heads of families wear these
things," and he touched his headdress.
?Tes, I know nearly all their ; words.
They don't ' use a great' many. One
word may have several meanings, ac
cording to the pitch of the voice."
Suddenly his voice failed him;
Though jthe .words came fluently, fala
long "UItiiMd ,oVal chords wore un
equal to the strain of measured" speech.
He askeq hoarsely for some hot wa
ter. When Courtenny next came across
him in the ealon he was asleep and
changed so greatly by the removal 0
pigments from his fi:ce that It wn:
difficult to regard him as the same le-
His 6tory was unquestionably true.
Tollemache, who bad fought an off
shoot tribe of these same Indians;
Chrlstobal. who vouched for the Ar
gentine accent, and Elsie, who seemed
to have read such rare books of travel
as dealt with that little known prirt of
the world, bore out the reasonableness
of his statements. Tbe only Individual
on board who regarded btra with sus
picion was Joey, and even. Joey was
satisfied when Suarez had washed him
self. It was daylight again, a daws of
dense mist without wind or hall, ere
any member of the ship's company
thought of sleep. Then Elsie went to
her cabin and dreamed of n river of
molten gold, down which she was com
pelled to sail In a cockleshell ' boat
while fantastic monsters swam around
and eyed her suspiciously.
When at last she awoke after a few
hours of less exciting slumber sha
came out on deck to find the sun shin
ing on a fairyland of green and blue
and diamond white, with gaunt gray
rocks and groves of copper beeches to
frame the picture. There was no pil
lar of smoke on the lower hills to bear
silent testimony to the presence of the
Indians, but the canoe lying alongside
told her; that the : previous - night's
events were no part of her drenms,
and a man whom she did not recognize
a man with closely cropped gray
hair and a deeply lined, weather tan
ned face from which a pair of sunken,
flashing eyes looked kindly at her
said in Spanish:
'Good morning, senorita. I hope I
did not startle you when I came
aboard. And I said things I should
