Mr. Thomas Barcus picked himself
up from the bottom of the lifeboat,
where he had been violently precipi
tated by the impact of grounding,
blinked and wiped tears of pain from
his eyes, solicitously tested his nose
and seemed to derive little if any com
fort from the discovery that it was not
broken, opened his mouth . . . and
remembered the presence of a lady.
"Poor Mr. Barcus!" she said gently.
"I'm so sorry. Do forget I'm here
%nd say it cut loud!"
Mr. Barcus dropped his hands and
dropped his head at the same time.
"It can't be did," he complained in
Bmbittered resignation; "the words
ave never been invented . . ."
In the bows Mr. Law (who had
barely saved himself a headlong
plunge overboard when the shoal took
rast hold of the keel) felt tenderly of

"Barely two feet," he announced,
withdrawing the oar from the water,
'and eel-grass no end."
"Oh!" Barcus ejaculated with the
ccent of enlightenment; and leaving
he motor, turned to the stern, over
which he draped hi'mself in highly un
ecorative fashion while groping un
er water for the propeller.
"That's the answer," he repeated;
'there's a young bale of the said eel
rass wrapped round the wheel.
Which, I suppose, means I've got to
,o overboard and clear it away."
Like Mr. Law, he wore neither shoes
or other garments that could be more

een-but only shirt, trousers and a
"If you've nothing better to do, my
rtical friend," he observed as he
stooped to hack and tear at the mass

'you might step out and give us a

The boat budged not an inch-but
r. Law's feet did, slipping on the
reacherous mud bottom with the up
ihot of his downfall; with a mighty
splash he disappeared inomentarily
eneath the surface-and left his tem
er behind him when he emerged.
As for Mr. Barcus, he suffered like

"Why .not wade ashore?" Rose Trine

"That's the only sensible remark

Mr. Barcus. "Respectfully submitted."

"Good Lord!" Barcus exclaimed, so
Alan gently lowered the inert body of
the girl to the sands. "And to think
I didn't understand she was so nearly
all in-chaffing her like that! I'd like
to kick myself!"
"Don't be impatient," Alan advised
grimly; "I'm busy just at present, but
. . . Meantime, you might fetch
some water to revive her."
It was an order by no means easy
to fill; Barcus had only his cupped
hands for a vessel, and little water
remained in them by the time he had
dashed from the shallows back to the
spot where Rose lay unconscious,
while the few drops he did manage
to sprinkle into her face availed noth
ing toward rousing her from the
trance-like slumbers of exhaustion into
which she passed from her fainting
fit. . . .
In the end Alan gave up the effort.
"She's all right," he reported, releas
ing the wrist whose pulse he had been
timing. "She fainted, right enough,
but now she's just asleep-and needs
It, God knows! It would be kinder
to let her rest, at least until I see what
sort of a reception that lighthouse is
inclined to offer us."
"You'll go, then?" Barcus inquired.
"I'd just as lief, myself . .
"No; let me," Alan insisted. "It's
not far-not more than a quarter of a
mile. And she'll be safe enough here,
in your care, the little time I'm gone."
Barcus nodded. His face was drawn
and gray in the moon-glare. "Thank
God!" he breathed brokenly, "you're
able. I'm not."
He sat down suddenly and rested his
eid-&c4is-knees. "Don't be longer
than you can help7"1he -muttered
He had come to the headland of
the lighthouse itself before the ground
began to shelve more gently to the
beach; and was on the point of ad
dressing himself to the dark and silent
cottage of the lightkeeper when he
paused, struck by sight of what till
then had been hidden from him.
The promontory, he found, formed
the eastern extremity of a wide-armed
if shallow harbor where rode at moor
ings a considerable number of small
craft-pleasure vessels assorted about
equally with fishing boats. And barely
an eighth of a mile on, long-legged
wharves stood knee-deep in the water,
like tentacles flung out from the sleepy
little fishing village that dotted the
rising ground-a community of per
hape two hundred dwellings.
Nor was this all-even as Alan hove
In view of the village he heard a series
of staccato snorts, the harsh tolling of
a brazen bell, the rumble of a train
pulling out from a station. And then
he saw its jewel-string of lights flash
athwart the landscape and vanish as
its noise died away diminuendo.
Where one train ran another must.
He need only now secure something
to revive Rose, help her somehow up
the beach, and in another hour or two,
of a certainty, they would be speed
ing northwarde, up the cape, toward
Boston and the land of law and order.
Such thoughts as these, at least,
made up the texture of his hopes; the
outcome proved them somewhat too
presumptuous. He jogged down a
quiet village street and into the rail
road station just as the agent was clos
ing up for the night.
A surly citizen, this agent, ill-pleased
to have his plans disordered by chance
flung strangers. He greeted Alan's
breathless query with a grunt of In
"Nah," he averred, "they ain't no
more trains till mornin'. Can't y' see
I'm shuttin' up?"
"But surely there must be a tele

"But I must send a telegram," Alan
protested. "I tell you, I must. It's
a matter of life and death."
"Sure, young feller. It always is
after business hours."
"Won't you open up again-"
"I tell you, no!"
In desperation Alan rammed a hand
into his trousers pocket. "Will a dol
lar influence your better judgment?"
he suggested shrewdly.
"Let's see your dollar," the other re
turned with no less craft-open in
credulity Informing his countenance.
And, surely enough, Alan brought
forth an empty hand.
"Make a light," he said sharply. "My
money's in a belt round my waist.
Open your office. You'll get your dol
lar, all right."
"All right," he grumbled, reopening
the door of the telegraph booth and
making a second light inside. "There's
blanks and a pencil. Write your mes
sage. It aint often I do this-but I'll
make an exception for you."
Alan delayed long enough only to
make a few inquiries, drawing out
the Information that, for one who had
not patience to wait the morning
train northbound, the quickest way
to any city of importance was by boat
across Buzzard's bay to New Bedford.
Boats, it was implied, were plenti
ful, readily to be chartered.
A time-table supplied all other need
ful advice. Alan wrote his message
Addressed to Digby, his man of
business In New York, It required that
gentleman to arrange for a motor-cor
to be held in waiting on the water
front of New Bedford from 3:00 a. m.

Law, as well as for a special train at
Providence, on similar provisions.

and had involuntarily disarmed him- d
self as well. r
The other two men made a sad busi- E
ness of attempti-.g to overpower Mr. t
Barcus. In less than a minute they
were both overboard. S
"And just for this," Alan said before s
getting out of earshot-"I'm going to
treat my party to a joy-ride in your
pretty powerboat." C
He concluded this speech abruptly
as Barcus brought them up under the i
quarter of the power cruiser. t
Within two minutes the motor was
spinning contentedly, the mooring had'
been slipped, and the motorboat was I
heading out of the harbor.
Within five minutes she had left It a
well astern and was shooting rapidly C
westward, making nothing of the buf- I
fets of a very tolerable sea kicked up I
by the fresnening southwesterly wind.

"Yoi' have the courage of igno- t

At thiz Alan sat up with a start. I
Back against the loom of the Eliza- t
eth islands through which they had ,
avigated while he nodded, shone the t
ilk-white sails of an able schooner. d
Sheets all taut and every inch of
anvas fat .with tihe beam wind, she r
footed it merrily in their wake-a sil- s
er jet spouting from her cutwater.
But by this stage in his history Mr. g
Law had arrived at a state of mnind t:
mmune to surprise at the discovery a
hat he had once more failed to elude g,

oman who sought hIs life. b
He viewed the schooner with no

"Much farther to go?" he inquired ~

"How much lead have we got?" -
"A mile or so-none too much." b

In the end they made it by a narrow

There was neither a policeman nor

But soon, disarmed, his case was

Wildly he cast about for some sub

oubled up convulsively, with a sick

His fellow followed with less injury.

Alan came to himself supported by
arcus-his senses still reeling from
ie concussion of that -.thunderbolt
rhich he had so unwittingly loosed
ie'cloud of sulphurous smoke and yet
issipated by the wind.
Judith lay at his feet, stunned; and

And then Barcus was hustling him
nceremoniously down the wharf.
"Come! Come!" he rallied 'Alan.

His prediction was justified even
efore It was made; already the near

eople were galloping down toward
ie head of the wharf; and In their
umber a policeman appeared as If by
And while the man hesitated Alan
rabbed him by the shoulder, threw
im bodily from the car, dropped into
is seat, cried a warning to Rose, and
irew In the clutch. The machine re
ponded without a jar; they were, a
undred feet distant from the scene
f the-accident before Alan was fairly -
ettled In his place.
As he grew more and more calm, he
angratulated himself on having drawn
n~ excellent car In the lottery of
iance. It was light, but the motor
in famously, and if not capable of
racing pace It would serve his ends
s speedily as was consistent with
easonable care for the life of the

Yet his congratulations were prema
