Of the hutch, and the two mates below
went on with their work. No one of
fered to help them. No one, as Kettle
grimly noted, was made to do so.
"Do your three mates run this ship,
captain?" asked Kettle ut last.
"They are handy fellows."
"If you ask ine, I should call them
.poor drivers. What for do they put lu

all that mob of deck bauds und catth

1 don't permit that sort of thing. 1 am

my fellow men to be struck. If the
fellows refuse their duty, it lies be
tween them nnd their consciences."
"As If an old sailor had a con

"Well, captain, I'm no small piece of a
Christian myself, but I was taught
that whatever my band (ludeth to do to

Kettle glared nnd hesitated. lie was
not used to receiving orders of this de
scription, nnd the Innovation did not
please blm. Hut for once In his life he
submitted. Miss Carnegie was sitting
under tho lee of the deckhouse aft
watching him, nnd somehow or other
he did not choose to have a scene be

strange new feeling which had como

and went and sat beside her. She wel

cret of her pleasure at his presence.
Hut her talk Just now Jarred upon hint.
Like other people who seo the ocean

teur's view, sho was ablo to detect
romance beneath her present discom
forts, ? id she wns pouring Into his
ear her scheme for making It tho
foundation of her most ambitious
In Kettle's uilnd to build an epic on
such a groundwork was nothing short
of profanation. Ho viewed tho sen,
seamen nnd sea duties with an In
timate eye. To him they were common
and unclean to the furtherest degree;
no trick of language could elevnto their
meanness. He pointed out how sho
would prostitute her talent by laying
hold of such nn unsavory subject nnd
extolled the beauty of his own Ideal.
"Tackle a corn Held, miss," ho would
say again and again, "with Ita butter
yellow color and Its bobs of red pop
pies and tho green hedges all round.
You write poetry such na I know you
can about a cornfield nnd fnrmers nnd
farm buildings with thatched roofs,
and you'll wake one of these mornings
(like all poets hope to do somo day)
and lind yourself famous. And because
why? you want to know. Well, miss,
It's because cornfields nnd tho country
nnd all that nro what peoplo want to
bear about and dream tbey'vo got
handy to their own back doorstep.
They're so peaceful, so restful. You
take It from me, no ono would ever
want to rend four words about this
beastly cruel sea and tho brutes of
men who mnke their living by driving
ship across It. No, by Ja? No, miss,
you tako It from a man who knows,
they'd just desplso It." And so they
argued endlessly at tho point, each
keeping an unchanged opinion.
Perhaps of all the human freight
that the cattleboat carried Mr. McTodd
wns tho only ono person entirely hap
py. He had no watch to keep, no work
to do'; the inessroom was warm, stuffy
nnd entirely to his tnste; liquor was
plenty, nnd the ofllclnl engineers of tho
ship were Scotch nnd argumentative.

split the ear. And 'hen tin steam siren
burst out Into <?? u < ast beiiow of pain,
which drowned all the other noises as
though they had been children's whis
Kettle slid on coat and trousers over
his pyjamas and went and thumped at
a door at the other side of the alley
"I am dressing, captain."
"Gel finished with it and then wait.
I'll come fur you w hen It's time."
It l>? all Very well (O be cool on these
occasions, but sometimes the race Is to
the prompt. Captain Kettle made his
way up on deck against a great ava
lanehe of water which was cascading
down the coinpanlonway. No shore
was in sight. The ship had hacked oil
after she had struck and was now roll
lug heavily In a deep trough. She war.
low in the water, and every second
wave swept over her.
No one seemed to be in command. A
dim light Showed Kettle one lifeboat
wrecked In davits and a disorderly
mob of men trying to lower the other.
Hut some one let go the stern fall so
that the boat shot down perpendicular
ly, and tho next wave smashed the
lower half of It Into splinters. The
frenzied crowd left It to try the port
quarter boat, and Kettle raced them
across the streaming decks and got Just
to the davits. He plucked a greenbenrt
belaying pin from the rail and laid
about Lkiin viciously.
"Itaek, you scum!" he shouted. "Get
back or I'll smash in every face among
you! Good Lord, isn't there a mate or
a man loft uu this stinking farmyard?
Am 1 to keep off all this two legged
cattle by myself?"
They fought on, the black water
swirling waist deep among them with
every roll, the siren bellowing for help
overhead and the ship sinking under
their feet, und gradually, with the
fren/.y of despair, the men drove Kettle
back agaiust the rail, while others of
them east off the falls of the quarter
boat's tackles preparatory to letting
her drop. Hut, then, out of tbo dark
ness, up came McTodd and the steam
er's mate, both shrewd bitters uud men
not afraid to uso their skill, and once
more the tables were turned.
The other quarter boat had been low
ered and swamped; this boat was the
only one remaining.
"Now, Mae," said Kettle, "help the
mate take charge and murder every
one that Interferes. Get the boat In
the water and feud oft'. I'll be oft' be
low and fetch up Miss Carnegie. We
must put some hurry in It. The old
box hasn't much longer to BWlm, Take
the lady ashore und see she comos to
"Oh, aye," said McTodd, "and we'll
keep a seat for ycrsel', skipper."
"Voll needn't bother," said Kettle. "1
take no man's placo In tbls sort of toa
party." He splashed oft* across the
streaming decks and found the cattlo
boat's captain sheltering under the Ice
of the companion wringing his hands.
"Out, you blltherer," he shouted, "and
save your mangy life! Your ship's
gone uow. You can't play hash with
her any more." After which pleasant
speech he worked his way below, half
swimming, half wudlug, and once more
beat against Miss Carnegie'a door.
Eveu lu this moment of extremity he
did not dream of going In unasked.
Bho camo out to him In the half
swamped alleyway, fully dressed, "Is
there auy hope?" she asked.
"We'll got you ashore, don't you
lie clapped an arm around her waist
aud drew her strongly on through the
dark and the swirling water toward
the fcot of the companion. "Excuse
me, miss," ho said, "this Is not famil
iarity, but 1 have got tho firmer aea
legs, and we must hurry."
They pressed up tho stair, battling
with great green cascades of water,
and gained the dreadful turmoil on
deck. A few weak stars gleamed out
above the wind and showed the black
wave tops dimly. Already some of the
cattle had been awept overboard and
were swimming about like the horned
hensts of a nightmare. The din of eurf
came to them among the other noises,
but ' ?oi visible. The steamer
had hacked off the reef on which sne
had struck and was foundering In deep
water. It was Indeed a time for hurry.
It was plain she had very few mor*
minuted to gwllll.
Each sea now made n clean breach
over her, and a passage about the
decks was a thing of Infinite danger,
but Kettlo was resourceful and strong,
and he had a grip round Miss Carnegie
and a hold on something solid when
the waters wrenched him, and he con
tri veil never to be wrested entlrelj
from Ids hold.
Hut when ho had worked bin way
aft a disappointment was there roody
for him. Tho quarter boat was gone.
McTodd Mood against ono of the dav
its cool and philosophical as ever.
"You Infernal Scotchman, you'vo lei
them take nwoy the boat from you I"
Kettle snarled. "I should have thought
you could have kept your end up wltb
a mangy crowd like that."
"Use your eyes," said the engineer
"The boat'fl In the wash below there,
at the end of the tackles, with her sld<
stove In. She drowned tuo three men
that were lowered In her becaus<
they'd no' sense enough to fend off."
"That comes of setting n lot of farm
ers to work a steamboat."
"Aweel," Bald McTodd, "steamcrf
havo been lost befoie, and I havo It in
mind, captain, that you've helped."
"Hy James, If you don't carry a civil
tongue, you drunken Geordle, I'll knock
you some teeth down to cover Itl"
"Oh, I owed you thatl" said Mc
Todd. "But now we're quit*. I bided
bere, Captain Kettle, because 1 thought
you^d maybe like to iwlm the leddjr off
to the shore. Rod at that I can bear ?
"Mao," suhl Kettle, "I take back
what 1 suld about you're being Scotch.
You're a good soul"? He turned to
the Kill, still shouting to muke hid
voice curry above the clash of tho seas
and the bellow of the siren and the
noises of the dying ship: "It's our only
ehance, miss, swimming. The life
buoys from the bridge are alt gone. 1
looked. The hands will have taken
them. There'll be a lot of timber float- J
lng about when she goes down, and j
we'll be best clear of that. Will you 1
trust to us'.'" I
"1 trust you In everything." she said.
Deeper and deeper tho steamer gunk
In her wallow. The lower deckB were
swamped by this, and the miserable
eattlo were either drowned hi their
stalls or washed out of her. There
was no need for the three to Jump.
They Just let go their hold, und the
next Incoming wuvo swept them clear
of the steamer's spar deck and spurned
them 100 yurds from her side.
They found themselves umong a
herd of floating cattle, some drowned,
somo swimming frenzledly. and with
the Inspiration of the moment laid hold
of a couplo of boasts nnd so supported
themselves without further exertion.
It was no use swimming for the pres
ent. They could not tell which way
the shore lay. And It behooved them to
reserve all their energies for the morn
ing, so well as the numbing cold and
the water would let them.
Of a sudden the bellow of the steam
er's siren cei'scd. and a pang went
through thCDJ as though they had lost
a friend. Then came a dull, muffled
explosion, and then n huge, ragged
shape banned tip through tho night
like some vast monument and sank
swiftly straight downward out of sight
beneath the black, tumbled sea.
"Poor old girl." said McTodd. spit
ting out the sea water. "They'd a tine
keg of whisky down In her messroom."
"Poor devil of a skipper!" said Ket
tle. "It's to lie hoped he's drowned out
of harm's way or It'll take lying to
keep htm any rags of bis ticket."
Tho talk died out of them after that,
ami the miseries of the situation closed
In. The water was cold, but the air
was piercing, and so they kept thetr
bodies submerged, each holding on to
the bovine raft and each mall sparing
n few fingers to keep n grip on the girt
The next Incoming wave eucpt them clear
One of the beasts they clung to quickly
drowned; the other, strange to say,
kept Its nostrils above water, swlin

alive to the shore, the only four footed
occupant of the steamer to be saved.
At the end of each minute It soemed
to them that they were too bruised and
numbed to hang on uuother 00 seconds,
and yet the next minute found them
still alive and dreading Its successor.
The sea moaned around them, mourn

Long before tho dawn tho girl had
sunk Into a stupor and was only held

were merely nutomuta, completing
their task with a legacy of will.

Miss Carnegie took longer to recover
and lu fact for a week lay very near to
death. Kettle staid on m TOirvllIffge,
making almost hourly Inquiries for
her. He ought to have gone away to
seek fresh employment; he ought to
have gone back to his wife and chil
dren, and he upbraided himself bitterly
for his neglect of these duties. At last
the girl was able to sit up and see blm,
and ho visited tier, showing all the
deferenco an embassador might offer
to a queen.
She listened to his tale of the wreck
with Interest and surprise. Sho was
almost startled to hear that others, in
cluding the captain and two of the
mates, were saved from the disaster
besides themselves, but at the same
tlmo unfelgnedly pleased. And she
was pleased also to hear thut Kettle
was subpoenaed to give evidence before
tho forthcoming Inquiry.
"1 am glad of that," she said, "be
cause I know you will speak with ?
free mind. You have told me so many
times how incompetent tho captain
was, and now you will be able to tell It
to the proper authorities."
Kettle looked at her blankly. "But

JAMES W. TOLBERT
SHOT AT MCORMICK.
Returned to Town From Which He
Had Been Expelled?MftBked
Men Called at Noon.
The Greenwood COItOSpondont of The
State writeB as follows under date of
?Fob 21 :
James W. Tolbert has met the fate he
courted. He was shot today on the
streets of McCormick, where he had
beeu told that he must not go or else he
would have to die. Before he was slu I
down bo tired two shots at a young v si
tor to tho town of McCormick - a man
who had nothing to do wi h the row
going on between Tolbert and the citi
zens of McCormick. Both shots look
effect, one in the body and one in the
hip This young man, a Mr. Martin,
was visiting Ins brother in law, M. L H.
Sturkey. and wub simply walking by
when Tolbert, according to the state
meats of those present, pulled out a pis
tol and tired at him. Immediately a
fuailade bugau, with Tolbert as the tar
get for all the available shoot lug irons in
and around that vicinity.
Tolbert owns quite a lot of land
around McCormick and some real estate
in the town He has never attended to
the renting of this property in person
until thiB year ; be will likely never do
so agaiu. About a week ago be went
down to McCormick determined to slay.
In a few days he received an anonymous
letter advi?ing birr, to leare 11c refused
to attach auy importance to the letter
and went on about his business of look
iug after his farm lands.
Today he was approached by a cro ? d
of men and told to leave According to
the rlatcment of the best men present
he attempted to argue the matter and to
let it be known that he intended to stay
Just about that time young Martin pas
sed by tho crowd on the other side of
tho street, and seeing him,Tolbert pulled
out his pistol and tired twice at Martin
As stated above, the shooting at Tolbert
then commenced, only two Hliots taking
elloct both in the body. Martin was
hit iu the hip and in the body. There
were uo more shots tired at Tolbert
after no fell. He was carried to the
homo of Mr. Pick Bolllogsworth, and
it was stated tonight that a heavy guard
had been placed around the house.
Young Martin was carried into the
?toro of his brotbor-in law, M L. B.
Sturkey, and his wound* immediately
attended to by l)r Moldau
Even if Tolbert's wounds do not
prove fatal, bis life is sti 1 in danger.
Tho general opinion Ib that if Martin
should die thoro would ho no chance for
Tolbert. Late this afternoon a 'phone
meesago from McCormick staled that a
good many people from the couj.ry
were coming in town, and the universal
opinion wub that Tolbert had better be
moved. His physician said that lie
could be moved, and his brother, It. It.
Tolbert, exneus to go tonight to have
blm moveu to Augusta or some place of
Jim Tolbert, aa ho is known, lias been
obnoxious to tho people of McCormick
ever siuco the Phoenix riot iu the fall of
1808 Ho rondercd himself doubly eo
by tho celebrated "COnsipraoy caso"
against some of the very best citizens of
of the place in the ?pring of 18911. Ho
has mado sovcra attcmptB to go back
there but every timo he was told quiet
ly hut none too Icbb Urin y that he could
not stay in tho town of McCormick
Despite thi ne warnings he has perbisted,
and it eoeniH now that ho will give up
his lifo for his rashness. The people of
McCormick aro vory cool and very de
termined. Ho Iibb beer told to stay
away, and all would bo well, but to try
to come back thoro would mean trouble
Tho trouble has como.
TUB STOltY KHOM M'COItUK'K
A special to Tho Stato from McCor
mick gives the followiug account:
A party of maskod men rodo into
town today about noon with tho inten
tion of making James W. Tolbert leave
He had been here for a week nnd Ihe
citizens had about decided to not molest
him furthur, which fact mado him feel
safo. Tho masked party encounterc i
him at work repairing one of Iiis hui d
Ings and, according to an eye witness,
ono of tho party of masked men askcl
him to h.irrender, instoa 1 of which lie
drow hid pistol and presenting it tired.
Tho masked party was saved by a memo
randum book wrapped around with a
Silk handkerchief; it catching the bullet.
They Immediately began barking from
each other after exchanging shots.
Tolbert emptied his pistol, then turned
and ran and succeoded In evading tho
mob which soon dispersed It developed
aftorwards that ono of tho party wiib
wounded slightly Tolbert wan seriously
wounded, onco in tho right aldo of back,
the bullet lodging in lung, and onco in

3WIFT TRIAL IN FLORENCE
Twenty Minutes Only to Dispose
ot u Famous Lynching Case.
The Florence correspondent of the
News and Courier, Wlilirg under
ilate of Feh, lv. buys (hut Judge
Watts made a record-break lug trial
in the case of the State vs. John
Livingston, charged With assault with
intent to lavish, ami of assault and
battery With intent to kill, and has set
the pace for all othei Judges in South
Carolina to follow in the trial of
??brutes" charged will? such crimes.
Livingston was brought to Florence at
y.ilu o'clock, arraigned in open con it ;
pleaded gtlitty ; Bt itloueod to ten years
at hard labol 111 the penitentiary, and
was put aboard of the train, and was
on the way for the penitentiary to en
ter upon serving his Bontence atthoO
o'clock. Just twouty minutes, liven
the citizens of Florence are wondering
how quickly and quietly ii was done,
but it was done nevertheless and Llv
illgstou is now doing time in the peni
Judge Watts decided to have Living
ston bicuglit here lor ti ud, and gave an
order to Slu ml I lurch to g.? to Colum
bia and bring Livingston hole. lie
also empowered tbo sherill'to appoint
a BUtllciuut numb, r of deputies to as
sure the safe arrival of the prisoner, to
si c that he was not hill un d while hen-,
and lo see that be was safely returned
to the penitentiary. Sheriff Durch im
mediately appointed about twenty-live
deputies, among whom WClC lawyers,
doctors, merchants and other business
I men, and nolilled them lo meet Train
f?4 11 oin Columbia, at the Irby strict
crossing, t uur the coin 1 house, properly
armed lo care for the piisonur during
hi? slay in Floreuce. .kill 15 the party
of deputies wi re on baud. Livingston
was taken directly fiom the train to
the court house, the Judge having bad
the com! opened early, bo Ihoi'C would
be no delay, and the prisoner was im
mediately arraigucd. Livingston when
nskcdhy the clerk: Guilty or not guilt) ?
Answered in a stern voice : ?? I am
guilty !" The Judge then told Living
ston that under ordinary circumstances
he would accept the plea of guilty made
ami would make the sentence light,
but owing to the fact thai bo had put
the county and State to an enormous
expense m capturing and caring for
him to save a lynching, which would
have happened had the law not have
scented control of him, and the fact
that be would have accomplished bis
purpose but lor certain circumstances,
and as a lesson to others who in ly at
tempt such a wicked deed, be would
give him the highest sentence the law
would allow, and he thereupon sen
tenced htm to the S ate penitentiary
for a term of ten years al haul labor.
The necessary papers were, made out,
and the sheriii'and deputies proceeded
to the Irby street stun ,n, where the
train foi Columbia was in waiting.
Livingston is the negro who assault
ed the daughter ol the keeper of the
national cemetery near Florence lust
fall, with intent t > commit a more bei
11011-1 crime, but was bravely resisted
and dually fled, but was pursued ami
captured. Preparations hud been math
? lo lynch htm, when the authorities
spirited bin away lo the penitentiary
at Columbia, where he has been eon
lined for safekeeping ever since until
It would have been easy enough foi
the sherill' to have brought Livingston
here and kept him in jail, for iheie
would have been no demonstration oi
trouble, but the action of Judge Watts
is heartily commended even b) bomo
of those who were most eager in hound
ing down the two negroes.
