A MESSAGE FROM BOUCHER.
SHELDON became aware that she
"I beg pardon." he said.
"What's that you were say
ing?" "You weren't listening to a word.
I knew it," she chlded. "I was saying
that the condition of the Klibberty
Gibbet was disgraceful, and that to
morrow, vrben you've told the skipper

to take my men out and give her an

too. Why, there's whiskers on her

the porch for interrogation.
The black drew a scrap of note
paper from under hi" belt and passed
It over. Sheldon scanned It hurriedly.
"It's from Boucher," he explained,
"the fellow who took Packard's place.
Packard was the one I told you about
who was killed by his boat's crew. He
says that Port Adams crowd is out
fifty of them, in big canoes and camp
ing on his beach. They've killed half
a dozen of his pigs already and seem
to be looking for trouble. And he's
afraid they may connect with the flf
iren runaways irora i.udrh.
"In which case?" she queried. ;
"In which case Billy Pape will he i

It's Pape's station, you know. 1 wish !
I knew what to do. 1 don't like to leave
you here alone." !
"Take me along, then."
He smiled and shook his head.
"Thon you'd bettor take my men ,
along," she advised. "They're good
Phots, and they're not afraid of any- j
thing-except Utaml. and he's afraid (
of ghosts." ;
The big bell was rung, and fifty blnck )
boys carried the wtialeboat down to
the water. The regular boat's crew
manned her, and Matauare and three
other Tahitlans. belted with cartridges
and armed with rifles, sat In tho stern
sheets, where Sheldon stood at the

Joan said wistfully as the boat shoved
"I'm as good as a man." she urged.
"You really are needed here," he r
plled. "There's that Lunga crowd:
they might reach th coast right here

on the veranda, drinking coffee. Th
whaleboat was being carried into its
j shed. "Boucher was a bit timid at
first to carry off the situation with a
strong hand, but he did very well once j
we got started. We made a play at i

scoundrel, accepted the findings. He's a I

Two hours later the canoes arrived.
No one saw them come. The house
boys were busy in the kitchen at their
own breakfast. The plantation hands
were similarly occupied in their quar-
; ters. Satan lay sound asleep on his
j back under the billard table, in his
! sleep brushing at the flies that pes
i tered him. Joan was rummaging in
j the storeroom, and Sheldon was taking

with deliberate slowness sauntered to
the railing, where he yawned sleepily
and looked down on them. It came to
him curiously that It was the destiny
ever to stand on this high place look
ing down on unending hordes of black
trouble that required control, bullying
and cajolery. But while he glanced
carelessly over them he was keenly
taking stock. The new men were all
armed with modern rifles. Ah. he had
thought so. There were fifteen of
them, undoubtedly the Lunga mna-

were in the hands of the original
crowd. inese were tne very same
men who had killed his trader, Oscar,
"What name you walk about this
place?" he demanded.
At the same time he stole a glance
j seaward to where tba Fllbberty Gibbet
, reflected herself in the glassy calm of
the sea. Not a soul was visible under
I iier awnings, and he saw the whale-
' boat was missing from alongside. The
Tahitinns hid evidently cone shooting
fish up the T.alesuna. He was all alone

vhile his world slumbered ricacefully
.tmier the breathless tropic noon.
Nobody replied, and he repeated his

"WHAT SAVE TOU WALK
The blacks asoved uneasily, like a herd
of cattle, at the sound of his voice.
But not one spoke. Directly beneath
him he caught sight of the muzzle
of a rifle, barely projecting between
two black bodies, that was slowly ele-
vatlng toward him. It was held at the
hip by a man in the second row.
"What name you?'' Sheldon suddenly
shouted, pointing directly at the man
: who held the gun.
Sheldon still held the whip hand, and
t be intended to keep It.
"Clear out. all you fella boys!" he or
I dered. "Clear out and walk along salt

J "Me talk." spoke up a fat and filthy
! savage, whose hairy chest was caked
i with the unwashed dirt of years.
I "Oh, la that you, Telepasse?" tne
; white man queried genially. "Yon tell

talk along me."
"Him good fella boy," was the reply.
"Him stop along."
"Well, what do yon want?" Sheldon
asked, striving to hide under assumed
carelessness the weakness of conces
! "That fella boy belong along roe."
The old chief pointed out Gogoomy,
whom Sheldon recognized.
"White Mary belong you too much

he did not dare glance at her. There
were too many rifles down below there,
and rifles had a way of going off from
Again the veranda vibrated with
her moving weight, and he knew that
Joan had gone Into the bouse. A
minute later she was back beside him.
He had never seen her smoke, and it
struck him as peculiar that she should
1 be smoking now. Then he guessed
the reason. With a aulck glance be
noted the hand at ber side and in It
the familiar paper wrapped dynamite.
He noted also the end of fuse, spilt
properly, into which Bed been In
serted the head of a wax match.
"Telepasse, you old reprobate, tell
m boys clear out along beach. My
word. I no gammon along you."
"Me no gammon," said the chief.
"Me want 'm pay white Mary bang

'Til come down there and bang 'm

leaning toward the railing as If about
to leap over.
An angry murmur arose, and the
blacks surged restlessly. The muz
zles of many guns were rising from
the hips. Joan was pressing the
lighted end of the cigarette to the
fuse. A Snider went oft with the roar
of a bomb gun, and Sheldon heard a
pane of window glass crash behind
him. At the same moment Joan flung
the dynamite, the fuse hissing and
spluttering, into the thick of the
blacks. They scattered back in too
great baste to do any more 6hooting.
Satan, aroused by the one shot, was
snarling and panting to be: let out.
Joan heard and ran to let him out.

THE DANGER OF
The danger of Rheumatism is h
temporizing in the treatment, or
in failing to realize the powerful
nature of the trouble. If the blood
is allowed to remain infected with
uric acid, Rheumatism soon be
comes chronic, and then if not
checked it sometimes makes com
plete physical wrecks of its victims
by permanently stiffening the joints
and seriously interfering with the
bodily nerve force. External ap
plications will often temporarily
relieve Rheumatic pains, but do not
reach the blood, where the cause is
located, and to depend entirely
upon such treatment is a very
dangerous thing to do. S.S.S.
cures Rheumatism by removing
every particle of the cause and
purifying the blood. It filters out
of the circulation every trace of the
sour, inflammatory matter, cools
the acid-heated nerves, causes a
natural and healthy nourishment
through the blood to all muscles,
joints and bones, and perfectly cures
Rheumatism in all its forms. S. S. S.
does this great work because it is the
greatest cf all blood purifiers, acting
directly on the source of the disease.
Our special book on Rheumatism and
any medical advice will be sent free 1
to all. S. S. S. is sold at drug stores.

can markets on Monday. This morn
ing there was some show of steadiness
following yesterday's decline, with
Bhort covering on the firmer Manitoba
offers and the strength in Winnipeg,
together with firmness in Buenos
Ayres. During the morning there was
heavy pressure in December, which
declined 4, while the distant months
were firmly held. Private estimates
regarding the Argentine surplus for
wheat are showing up bearishly, and
these, together with free Argentine of
fers, caused a bearish feeling here.
At 1:30 p. m. the market was steady
for March and May, and to lower.
while December was down 1 from Mon
day. Our summary was bearish.
Corn after opening was Vt to low
er, and further declined with the
undertone heavy. Selling was induced
by the poor consumptive demand,
weakness in spot, cheaper American
offers, and improved crop advices.
