A MYSTERY OF THE AIR.

The wet weather drove ail the mem-
berh of the Ananias club into the roll
call room at the station hoiiHe the other
Tars rolled down Sorgt. Butcher's
face, and Patrolman Slate's voice was
husky with emotion as he, the narrator
of the evt-ning, related au incident of his
'When 1 waa a young man," began
the patrolman, after lighting one of those
8011th Illinois street torches he generally
smokes, "I had a friend named John A.
Morn-ll. We were raised together on
adjoining farms and were inseparable
companions. We left our rural homes
togi-ilx-r and were fellow workmen in a
amokc factory at Pittsburg, and when I
secured a job to fan fog on a steamlioat
he was made second cook on the same
boat. We boated together several years,
and finally I shipped on the Prairie Bird,
running between Cincinnati and Helena,
Ark. John could not get a job on the
Prairie Bird, but was taken on tin- Diana,
an eight boiler boat, in the same trade as
the boat I was on.
"We left Cincinnati three boMM ahead
of the Diana with a general cargo. John
promised to join me in Ileli-na and bring
his wife with him- -he was to lie married
that day. Our cruise was uninteresting
until we reached Helena. The captain
was sick, and I was on the hurricane
deck as we made the landing. The bow
lines had been made fast, 1 had notified
the pilot, when I felt the boat tremble;
the air waa thick with steam, there was
a deafening crash, and I knew the boiler
had let go. I felt myself going up, up,
up. I haven't any idea how high I did
go. three hours later, as 1 w:i comuut
down 1 was about a mile from the earth
then I met a man and woman coming
up. The woman had hold of the man's
arm. and in his other hand he carried a
grip sack. 1 recognized him as my old
friend. John A. Morrell.
" 'Hello, John,' 1 shouted.
" 'Well, Henry,' he answered, 'is that
" 'Yea, what's left of me. Who is that
" 'Oh, excuse me. Mr. Slate. My wife.'
" 'Glad to meet you, Mrs. Morreil," say
I. 'Just starting on your wedding trip?
" 'Yes, air,' she answered. She said
something else, but I was going so fast 1
did not catch it. When I struck ground
I learned that the Diana had exploded
her boilers three hours after our explo
sion, that Morrell and his bride were
standing on the boiler deck at the time
of the explosion. They were ready to go
ashore, but went up instead.
"About three years after that 1 was sit
ting in the office of the Palace hotel at
San Francisco. I picked up a Honolulu
paper and nearly dropped dewd when 1
