A Double Escape.
On Nauset Beach, In the shank of a
midsummer night, two men sprawled
on the sands, some distance back from
the 'Water, and listened to the heavy
thumping of their overtaxed hearts,
Now and again one would lift his
head and stare out over the black face
of the waters at a little line of red
dish flames about a mile off shore, aZ
that remained to witness to the fact
that, an hour since, these two 'had
been in command of as trim a small
schooner as ever ventured the coast
wise trip from Portland to New York.
As far out again shone the star
board light of a becalmed schooner,
whose people had been directly respon
sible for the disaster which had over
taken the smaller vessel.
In the course of time, beginning to
breathe with more ease, one of the
two marooned gentlemen said:
"What I can't understand-anyway
-is why these damned thugs out there
thought we'd be asses enough to stay
aboard the Seaventure and get burned
The other replied: "Did they?"
"Looks that way-doesn't it? If
they didn't, why were we permitted
to swim ashore at our elegant leisure?
There was nothing to prevent their
rowing round to cut us off."
"Maybe they did, at that, and missed
us, Mr. Law-and-Order!"
"We were a wee mite excited you've
got to admit. It's just possible we
didn't hear the noise of their oars.
And it's black enough for them to
have overlooked us. A man's head
in the water isn't really a conspic
uous object on a dark night."
"Tell me, Barcus, what's the near"
est symptom of civilization?"
"Chatham village," said Mr. Barcus,
"six miles to the no'th'ards, and cut off
by an inlet a mile or so wide at that."
Mr. Law groaned soulfully.
"Then there's the lighthouse on
Monomoy point," Mr. Barcus pursued,
"three miles to the south."

A silence commenced eloquently on
this assertion, broken only when Mr.
Law voiced a thought bred of long and
malignant observation of the schoon

"I'd give a deal to know who's
aboard that vessel."
"You don't mean you think your reg

With 'no warning whatever, and
within fifty feet of them, a ghastly
flare broke out in full blaze on the
surface of the water, revealing the
shape of a dory which had drawn in
unseen under cover of the profound
darkness, and at the same time dis
covering to its occupants the two
startled figures on. the beach.
Before they could stir the weird
light glimmered on a polished weapon
in the bow of the boat, a spiteful
tongue of reddish flame spat out, a
bullet sang between Messrs. Law and
Barcus, and with a sad thud of disap
pointment buried itself in the sands of
the wave-eaten bluff behind them.
Like twin automatons stirred to ac
tion by the report, the two turned and
pelted off down the beach, to escape
that deadly area of illumination.
Other shots sped after them, but
none was so well aimed, and presently,
finding a break in the bluff, they
swung off into the grateful shelter of
the night-wrapped dunes.
Meantime the dory had grounded on
the beach, and its several occupants
four or five of them, all men, appar
ently-jumping out, set off in pursuit
of the fugitives, following the tracks
in the sand.
The blackness of the night, how
ever, conspired with the savage laby
rinth of the dunes to save Alan and
Within another five minutes-while
~still the pursuit floundered and blas
phemed at random a round quarter
mile to the south-Mr. Law and Mr.
Barcus were noiselessly squirming on
their bellies, like two snakes in the
beach-grass, up the back of a ten-foot
bluff. And presently from its brow
they looked down on the spot where
the dory lay, only its bow out of water,
its stern afloat, under armed guard.
Very slowly and stealthily Alan got
to his feet and swung back over his
shoulder a heavy club of driftwood.
A match spluttered beside the dory
and flamed in the still air, relieving
with its reddish glow a bronzed and
The guard puffed fast and had the
tobacco well aglow when the sky took
advantage of his trustfulness and fell
upon him like an avalanche.
Simultaneously Alan and Barcus de
scended the face of the bluff In two
miniature landslides, dug themselves
out, and by the time the dazed and
disarmed guard had sufficiently recov
ered to cry out for help the dory was
a hundred yards off the beach and
making excellent time in the direction
of that lonely green light.
They wrought with the oars like
men possessed, yet with a machine
like precision that drove the boat fast
and furiously-without attempt to still
the splashing of their blades. Con
cealment of their purpose from those
who remained aboard the schooner
was out of the question. The shouts,
the shots, the play of flashlamps
along the beach-as thou~gh Bedlam
had loosed halt a dozen lunatic will
o the wisps upon the holy peace of
night-must have betrayed the fact
that they had turned the tables long
before the dory left the inshore shoals.
The commonest precautions, how

their oars while yet a little way from

in a tone tense with apprehension.
The muffled running of a heavy-duty
marine motor drifted down on the
wings of the sluggish wind.

"But they couldn't possibly!"

With a chuckle, Alan obediently
stretched himself out on the deck.
"You seem pretty easy in your mind

me, she's the same that tried to send
me to Davy Jones' locker. How does
she explain her presence aboard?"
"Much as I surmised," Alan replied.

Ing now near, now far, though the com

in volume and died away in the dis

plutter-plutter of that motor was never
altogether lost; if at times. it faded,
it seemed certain always to return in
even louder volume.
Vainly straining his vision against
the blank pallor of the encompassing
fog, Alan wondered, worried, dreaded!
At Irregular intervals, starting
from preoccupation, he would-manipu
late the brass pull on the wheel-box,
provoking the horn's stuttering blasts
of protest. But the need for unremit
ting vigilance and exercise of the fog
signal failed none the less to reconcile
Alan to that blatant clamor which so
widely and so hideously advertised
If there were anything still to be
feared from Judith and her crew-if,
for instance, as Barcus had suggested,
they had sought out one of the life
saving stations' on Nauset beach, ap
propriated its power-driven lifeboat
and renewed the pursuit, If ever they
heard that horn there would beyond
question be the devil to pay!
The loneliness of his vigil was even
tually relieved by the appearance on
deck of the woman Alan loved.
The tableau that greeted her vision as
she emerged from the companionway,
of the haggard, unshaven wretch at
the wheel and the other who lay at his
feet. where he had fallen, in a stupor
of fatigue, Instantly wrung from Rose
a little cry of solicitude. And she was
quick to do what little she could to
alleviate their discomfort. For Barcus
she fetched a pillow and blanket from
the cabin, and this one suffered her
ministrations without once rousing
from his slumbers. Then hastening
forward, she got the galley fire going
and prepared a makeshift breakfast
for her half-famished lover.
Warm food and hot coffee-such as
they were-lending a little tone to
Alan's spirits, he was presently able
to discuss their situation with some
optimism. Yet nothing could gloss
the fact that the problem confronting
them was one whose solution baffled
their utmost ingenuity-one the simple
contemplation of which taxed their
courage and intelligence Jo the ex
He summed up: "I can't see any
thing for It but father and Judith are
determined to have my scalp, and I'm
hanged if I can see how to protect my
self without taking a leaf out of their
books. What I'm most afraid of is
that some time I may forget It's a
woman I'm defending myself against.
When a fellow's fighting for his very
life he can't always stop to calculate
the weight of his blows."
The young man sighed, shook his
head, laughed uncertainly, and held
her closer to him. "Don't fear; I'll
find some way out without Injuring
either of them. I promise 'you that!"
He sealed the pledge upon her lips.
And In that moment of their obliv
ion to the world from some point for
ward a muffled crash sounded simul
taneously with the dull shock of a
collision with a smaller vessel, and a
strange voice cried out with an ac
cent of high exultation.
Before either Alan or the girl could
disengage the decke rang loud with a
rush of booted feet pounding aft.
The figures of the boarding party
were already taking shape through the
fog as Alan sprang toward the com
panionway to fetch the rifle. And. In
this action his feet slipped -on planks
greasy with moisture deposited by the
surcharged atmosphere. He went down
with a stumbling, thump, and an in
tant later two men fell bodily upon
him-active, strong fellows In the
dress of fishermen. He was suffered
to rise only as a prisoner, helpless in
the grasp of two pairs of powerful
He saw Barcus, rudely roused and
still dumb with sleepy confusion, In
no better case-jerked to his feet and
held captive by two more fishermen.
A fifth had taken charge of Rose,
clamping her wrists in the vise of
one big hand.
The sixth and sole other member of
the boarding party, likewise in the
rough-and-ready garb of a fisherman,
was Judith Trine.
Down the side a heavy life-boat
ground its way astern, the loose end
of its painter slipping over the rail
even as Alan caught sight of it. (So
It seemed Barcus had guessed shrewd
Observing this, one of the' men in.
charge of Alan made as if to leave
him to the other, addressing Judith
for permission to prevent the loss of
the lifeboat. She stopped him with
a peremptory gesture.
"No-let it go. We're better off
without it. Hold that man fast till
I fetch a rope. We'll make sure of
them both this time!"
Straining forward in the grasp of
her guard, Rose Implored her sister:
"Judith, in pity's name, think what
you are doing!"
"Hold your tongue!" Judith snapped
viciously. "Another whimper out of
you, and I'll have you gagged!"
The balance of her threat, though
accompanied by the exhibition of an
automatic pistol, was drowned out by
the sudden roar of a steamship fog
signal, so close aboard that it seemed&
almost to emanate from the. forepart
of the schooner herself.

the voice of a stentor, bellowed a ter
"Stop your engines! Shut off your

Then, like the wrath of God, the
steamship overwhelmed the lesser
ship; Its bow seemed to. slice through
the *schooner as a knite through

driven under water by the frightful
force of the blow.
