tune in Joan's company and thereby
Increasing the dislike Sheldon had
taken to him. He went swimming
with her. In point of rashness exceed
ing her, and dynamited fish with her,
diving among the hungry ground
sharks and contesting with them for
possession of the stunned prer. until
he earned the approval of the whole
Tahitian crew. Arahn challenged him
to tear a fish from a shark's Jaws, leav
ing half to the shark and bringing: the
other half himself to the surface, and
Tudor performed the feat, a dp from
the sandpaper hide of the astonished
shark scraping several inches of skin
from bis shoulder. And .loan was de
lighted, while Sheldon, looking on. re
alized that here was the hero of her
adventure dreams coming true. She
did not care for love, but he felt that
if ever she did love, it would be that
sort of a man "a man who exhibited."
was his way of putting it.
He felt himself handicapped In the
; presence of Tudor, wbo bad the gift of
making a show of all his qunlities.
Sheldon knew himself for a brave man.
wherefore he mnde no advertisement
of the fact. Life pulsed steadily and
deep In him. and It was not bis nature
: needlessly to agitate the surface so
j that the world could see the splash he
j was making. And the effect of the
other's amazing exhibitions was to
i make him retreat more deeply within
! himself and wrap himself more thick-
ly than ever In the nerveless, stoical
I calm of his race.
! "You are so stupid the last few days,"
Joan complained to him. "You don't
seem to have an idea In your head
above black labor and eoeoanuts. What
is the matter ?"
Sheldon smiled and beat a further
retreat within tiimseif. listening the
while to Joan anl l'tidor propounding
the theory of the strong arm ry whicb
the white man ordered lift- arncug the

"The Yankees talk a lot about what
they do and have done." Tudor said;
"and are looked down upon by the
Eugllsh as braggarts, liut the Yankee

fectually how to brag. He talks about
It. you see. But the Englishman goes
him one better by not talking about it.
The Englishman's proverbial 'ack of
bragging ts a subtler form of brag,
"1 never thought of it before." Joan
cried. "Of course. An Englishman
performs some terrincally heroic ex
ploit and Is very modest and reserved,
refuses to talk about It at all. and
j the effect is that by his silence he as
much as says: 'I do thkigs like this

"Yes. you have us there." Tudor ad

"How do you mean?"
"By talking about it"
Joan clapped ber hands in approval.
Tudor lighted a fresh cigarette, while
Sheldon sat on, rmperturbably silent.
Joan was looking intently across the
compound and out to sea. They fol
lowed ber gaze and saw a green light
and the loom of a vessel's sails.
"I wonder if It's the Martha come
back," Tudor hazarded.
"No, the sidelight is too low." Joan
answered. "Besides, they've got the
sweeps out. Don't you hear them?
They wouldn't be sweeping a big ves
sel like the Martha."
"Besides, the Martha has a gasoline
engine twenty-five horsepower," Tu
"Just the sort of a craft for us,"
Joan said wistfully to Sheldon. "I
really must see if I can't get a schoon
er with an engine. I might get a sec
ond hand engine put in. If you were
not so medieval I could be skipper and
save more than the engineer's wages."
He did not reply to her thrust and
she glanced at him. He was looking
out over the water, and in the lantern
light she noted the lines of his face
strong, stern, dogged, the mouth al
most chaste, but firmer and thinner
lipped than Tndor's. For the first time
she realized the quality of his strength,
the calm and quiet of It. its simple in
tegrity and reposeful determination.
She glanced quickly at Tudor on the
other side of her. It was a handsomer
face, one that was more immediately
pleasing. But she did not like the
mouth. It was made for kissing and
she abhorred kisses. For the moment
she knew a fleeting doubt of the man.
I'erbaps Sheldon was right In his judg
ment of the other. She did not know,
and It concerned her little; for boats
and the sea and the things and hap
penings of the sea were of far more
vital interest to her than men. and the
next moment she was staring through
the warm tropic darkness at the loom
of the sails and the steady green of
the moving sidelight and listening ea
gerly to the click of the sweeps in the
Nor did she take interest in the two
men beside her till both lights, red
and green, came into view as the
anchor checked the onward way.
"It's the Minerva," Joan said decid
edly. "How do you know?" Sheldon asked,
skeptical of her certitude.
"It's a ketch to begin with. And. be
