lesslj ttsto the pocket of my coat, and
as Glibby cluttered .up the ladder. I
walked fearlessly, to all appearances,
out of the berth and into the cabin,
the men giving back respectfully
enough to leare me gangway.
"Now, what Is it that you propose.
Master Bo's'n?" I began, sitting down
at the cabin table, while the rest
ranged themselves about it. some
standing, some sitting on the transoms
at the sides, as Piinball cams lumber
ing into the cabin. '
"We know," began Pimball Insolent
ly, without further preliminaries, "that
this 6hip's cruisin for treasure. We
know all we'll git out of the cruise is
what we signed for an' nothin else.
We're made a good guess that the
treasure is hereabouts, and we mean
to hare more than our wages. We're
goin" to hare our share of whatever'
found that we're after."
"So you shall." I said. "I am with
you in that. I want something more
than my wages too."
"What's this woman anyway?"
broke out another. "Why should she
get it all? She's a mere girl."
"You have said right, mate; who
and why indeed?" I answered smooth
ly, marking him down for my ven
geance when my turn came. "Now,
what are your plans?"
"We want that there map or chart
that you have been seen readis in
your cabin." said Pimball.
It was In a little bag around my
neck. I reached down, pulled out the
bag, took the torn parchment from it
and threw it on the table. There was
not the least use in my pretending ig
norance or in refusing to give it up.
They could kill me and take it auy
"There." said I coolly, "you have it."
Pimball picked it up.
"I can make but little out of It." he
said, and I doubted If he could rend. "
"You ran at least see the latitude
and longitude on it in the ripper cor
ners, can't you?" I asked, hardly sup
pressing my contempt for the man.
"Aye, that's plain enough," he an
"And you see that little wavy line
that runs up from the lagoon over the
top of what looks like a wall to an
opening In the side?" I continued, de
termining suddenly to inflame their
minds with the treasure so that tliey
would give less heed to other things
more important to me.
"Yes. I can make that out too."
"You see that little cross there?"
Pimball turned around and faced the
others crowding about him in great
and growing excitement.
"Here lights here!" he growled.
The - men nearest him shoved for
ward with their lanterns illuminating
the torn sheepskin.
"Aye. I caH make that out too.
What does it mean?" he asked, after a
Ir man n a if thara i . -1 T f li aHnt.f

j little, yet the idea of the treasure was
j real enough undoubtedly.
I "And you think there is treasure
i there?" asked Pimball.
Now. of late I had changed my mind.
why. I know not. hut I had. yet it
would not do to tell them that.
"I am sure of It." I cried, "gold, sli

thing to make us rich forever." j
"And what do you reckon the value j
of it all to be?" j
"Oh. several trillion if nnunria " 1 I
answered lightly as if the treasure wsi
so great that a million more or lesa
was of no moment.
"Hurrah."' cried out ore old seaman,
and the cabin on the instant was filled
with wild cries, bestial, brdtal shouts.
As the sound partially died away I
heard the door back of me opeu. Now.
I had purposely so placed myself as
to he between the crowd and the door.
The door was opened but a little way.
I was conscious that she was awake
and at least was listening.
"You are the only navigator among
ns. Mister nampdon." began Pimball.
after the men got measurably quiet
again, "and If you are with ns. yru

We'll glt the treasure aboard. il

"Am 1 to be captain?" I asked.
"There'll be no captain. Every man

"Heave ahead." said Pimball rongh
ly enough, evidently not liking the sit
uation, but failing utterly to see how
it could be arneuded siuce I complete
ly held the whip hand of them all.
"Wb-t I stipulate Is very simple.
First of all. I am to have my full and
equal share of the treasure with the
rest. I am to be treated exactly like
the others in the division, and my life
and liberty, which are Just as valuable
to me as to any of you. are to be treat
ed with respect, as I respect those of
"Why. we told yon that In the first
place." growled out the boatswain. "If
that's all you've got to say"
"Ah. the woman!" said Pimball
"What bad you proposed to do with
her?" I asked.
"Why er I er." the man faltered.
He actually did not dare to say what
bad b?eo in bis mind, and I've no
doubt that my pistol never looked big

bend on it
It was probable that the others had
not as yet decided what was to be done
with her. whatever Pimball may baTe
concluded. 1 took advantage, " there
fore, of their hesitation and pushed the
matter to a speedy conclusion.
"Well." I said quickly, "I want her
for myself." Did I hear a groan in
the cabin back of me? If I did.I could
not afford to hesitate. I could not let
them hear. "You saw how she treated
me." I cried, raising my voice and
banging on the table. "She struck me.
She had me imprisoned. I want her to
be given over to roe alone."
"But" began rimball. not relishing
the abandonment of this prize which

"You take the
much more. You give the woman to
me and I will divide tuy share of the
treasure among the crew."

But at that I found voice again, for
I was getting angry myself, my tem

"Not a word."
"But indeed you mt:st." I persisted,

holding out ber little palm which I
swallowed up in my large one on the
instant, standing silent as usual, bold'

"I know you will. I could not ask a

At that moment I heard a step on the
ladder. Somebody was coming. Quick
as a flash I realized the part we had
to play in public. I balled my fist and
struck the bulkhead savagely. I sup
pose 1 must have changed my expres

"That's It," I whispered, "scream

"What do you mean?' she asked in
incomprehensible amazement, 1n this
crisis my wits working quicker than
"There Is somebody outside. We bare
a part to play. I am abusing you and
you are fighting." I whispered swiftly.
Then louder, fairly shouting at her in

wench. You will find that, you havo
met your master now."
I made some sound of scuffle nnd she
did Indeed scream loudly. In the midst
of the commotion the door was tried,
but fortunately I had turned the key.
