~!?"he Spanish captain, mortified and.
2raznHiated beyond expression- by the
mishap, instantly realized that this con?
tact presented them wita a possibility
of- retrieving themselves. Before the
ships could be separated grappling
irons were thrown, and in a second the
three were locked in a close embrace.
Morgan had anticipated this situation
?lso, although he had hoped to avoid
lt; and had prepared for it As the
two ships became fast the high poop
and rali of the Spaniard were black
with iron capped men. They swarmed
over on the lower poop and quarter

The advantage was now with the ;
Spaniards, whose force outnumbered i
trie pirates two or three to one. Sur- j

v-'hose blood was up sufficiently to
enable them to long for the onset, Mer?
lan had run to the waist of ?he ship !

itnd had called ail hands from the poop j
:nd quarter. The Mary Rose was pro?
vided with an elevated quarter deck
end above that a high poop. Massing
tis men in the gangways just forward j
of the mainmast and on the forecastle ?
itself, with the hardiest spirits in the j
iront line and Morgan himself in ad?
vance of ail, sword in hand, the two
parties contemplated each other for a
little space just before joining in the
i The poop and quarter deck were
crowded so thick with Spanish soldiers j
a ad sailors that room could scarcely be
found-for the increasing procession,
;Tor, anxious to be in at the death, the
xnen of the galleon clinging to the frig
nce ran across and joined their com?
rades. Here were trained and v?t?ran
soldiers in overwhelming numbers,
with the advantage of position in that
they fought from above down, to op?
pose which Morgan had his motley
c.-ew behind him.
"Yield, you dastardly villain r shout?
ed the captain of the Spanish' frigate,
T-'ho was in the fore of his men.
"?Shall I have good quarter?" cried
A low growl ran through the ranks
of the buccaneers at this question. Yet
the rapscallions among the crew back
of him instantly took up the cry.
"Quarter! Quarter! We surrender!
We strike: For heaven's sake"
?"Silence!" roared Morgan, an order
which was enforced by the officers and j
veterans by fierce blows with pistol I
butts, hilts of swords and even naked !
fists. "I would hear the answer of the !
"We give no quarter to pirates and ?
murderers!" the other shouted.
^That's what I thought," said Mor- j
gan triumphantly, and as he spoke he j
drew from his pocket a silver whistle i
like a boatswain's call. He blew it ?
shrilly before the wondering men.
At that instant Teach, followed by j
the few men who had remained below J
in the powder division, came miming j
np to Morgan from the hatchway be- j
tween the two forces.
*Ts't done?" cried the captain.
"Aye, sir. in another"
"Forward, gentlemen!" shouted the
Spanish captain, dropping from the
quarter deck to the main deck. "God
and St. Jago! Have at them!*'
Before he had taken two steps the
terrific roar of a deafening explosion
came to the startled buccaneers out
of the blast of flame and smoke, in the
midst of which could be heard shrieks
and groans of the most terrible an?
guish Teach had connected the pow?
der with the fuse, and when he had
heard the sound of Morgan's whistle, j
the agreed signal, he had ignited it
and blown up the stern of the frigate. ;
The Spaniards were hurled in every
direction. So powerful was the concus?
sion that the front ranks of the buc?
caneers were also thrown down by it.
Morgan happened to fall by the side of
the Spanish captain, and the latter, ?
though badly wounded, with determin- .
ed and heroic valor raised himself on
his arm and strove to kill the buc- ?
eaneer. But the faithful Carib, who :
Strove to kill the buccanee
therners,** "Foi- Love

. DILLINGHAM COMPANY
had reserved one charged pistol by his
master's command for such an emer?
gency, shot him dead.
Morgan struggled to his feet and
looked at the scene. Some of his men
did not rise with the others, for they
had been killed by the falling splinters
and bits of iron.. The whole stern of
the Mary Rose was gone. There was
not a Spaniard left before them. A
few figures shrieking vainly for help,
clutching at floating pieces of timber,
might be seen struggling in the sea.
The Spanish frigate had a great hole
in the port side of her af terworks. She
was on fire. The three ships were
rocking as if in a hurricane.
Panic filled the minds of the greater
part of the buccaneers at this tre?
mendous catastrophe. Had Morgan to
save himself ruined his own ship?
They were appalled by the terrific ex?
pedient of their captain. Wild cries
and imprecations burst forth.
"The ship is'sinking!"
"\Ye are lost!"
"Silencer' shouted Morgan again and j
again. "The ship is sinking, but our j
ship is there. Let those who love life j
He sprang at the burning rail of the j
Spanish frigate. Black Dog was at his ?
heels; Ben Hornigolu followed hard I
upon; Teach was on the other side. ?
From the waist Raveneau and the Bra?
zilian strove to inspire the men. Old
Ve?sers from the forecastle drove them
.forward as quickly as he could. Pres- j
ently they recovered their courage in ?
some measure, for the fighting force j
of the enemy had disappeared. They j
had lost a ship, but there were two i
other ships before them. They swarm- I
ed over the rail with cheers and cries.
There was little or no resistances The
men of-the frigate were stunned into
helplessness by the explosion, al?
though the captain of the galleon ral?
lied a few men and fought until they
were all cut down and the two ships
were taken by storm.
They had scarcely gained the deck
of the galleon before the remains of
the Mary Rose sank beneath the sea,
the wounded upon her decks vainly
crying for succor.
By this time the weather side of the
remaining Spanish ship was a mass of
flame, and there was imminent danger
that the fire would be communicated to
the galleon. Giving his men time for
nothing, Morgan set to work furiously
to extricate himself. Axes and hatch?
ets were plied and all the skill and sea?
manship of the conquerors brought into
play. Finally they succeeded in get?
ting clear and working away from the
burning frigate. Morgan at once put
the galleon before the wind and when
he had drawn away a short distance
hove to the ship to take account of the
damage before determining his future
Far back on the ocean and low in the
water drifted the sinking remains of
the first Spanish frigate. Near at hand
was the hulk of the second ship, now a
blazing furnace. The first was filled
with living men, many of them desper?
ately wounded. No attention was paid
to them by the buccaneers. They cried
for mercy unheeded. Anyway, their
suspense would soon be over. Indeed,
the first ship sank and the second blew
up with a fearful explosion a short
time after they got away. A brief in?
spection showed that the galleon had
suffered little or no damage that could j
not be repaired easily at sea. Taking j
account of his men, Morgan found that
about twenty were missing. Taking
no care for them nor for the two ships
he bad fought so splendidly, pirate
though he was, he clapped sail on the
galleon and bore away to the south?
T: TlHE Almirante Recalue, for such
was the name of the galleon,

J ed by the skilled seamen of the
Marj- Rose under such leadership and
direction as the experience of Morgan
and the officers afforded. By the be?
ginning of the first dog watch even a
critical inspection would scarcely have
shown that she had been in action, j
With the wise forethought of a sea- j
man, Morgan had subordinated every ?
other duty to the task of making the i
vessel fit for any danger of the sea,
and he had deferred any careful exam?
ination of her cargo until everything,
had been put shipshape again, although
by his humed questioning of the sur?
viving officers he had learned that the
Almirante Recalde was indeed loaded j
with treasure of Peru, which had beeu !
received by her via the isthmus o? Pan- i
ama for transportation to Spain. On j
board her were several priests return- j
ing to Spain and also an aged abbess, j
Sister Maria Christina.
In the indiscriminate fury of the as- j
sault one or two of the priests had
been killed, but so soon as the ship had
been fully taken possession of the lives
of the surviving clerics had been spar?
ed by Morgan's express command.
The priests were allowed to minister
to their dying compatriots so long as
they kept out of the way of the sailors.
In the hold of the ship nearly 150
wretched prisoners were discovered.
They were the crew of the buccaneer
ship Daring, which had been com?
manded by a famous adventurer nam?
ed Ringrose, who had been captured
by a Spanish squadron after a des?
perate defense off the port of Callao.
Spain, where ila a ^>ected sum
mary punishment for their iniquities,
j No attention whatever had been paid
; to their protests that they were Eng?
lishmen, and. indeed, the statement was
? hardly true, for at least half of [hem
I belonged to other nations. In the long
i passage from Callao to the isthmus, and
j thence through the Caribbean they had
been kept rigorously under hatches.
Close confinement for many days and
enforced subsistence upon a scanty
j and inadequate diet had caused many
j to die and impaired the health of the
j survivors. When the hatch covers
I were opened, the chains unshackled
! and the miserable wretches brought
i on. deck their condition moved even
j some of the buccaneers to pity. The
j galleon was generously provided for
her long cruise across the ocean, and
the released prisoners, by Morgan's
orders, were liberally treated. No
work was required of them; they were
allowed to wander about the decks at
pleasure, refreshed by the open air,
the first good meal they had enjoyed
in several months and by a generous
allowance of spirits. As soon as they
learned the object of the cruise, with?
out exception they indicated their de?
sire to place themselves under the
command of Morgan.
As soon as it could be done a more
careful inspection and calculation sat?
isfied the buccaneer of the immense
value of his prize. The lading of the
galleon, consisting principally of silver |
bullion, was probably worth not far j
from a million Spanish dollars-pieces j
of eight! This divided among the 130 j
! survivors of the original crew meant j
affluence for even the meanest cabin I
i boy. It was wealth such as they had I
i not even dreamed of. It was a prize !
the val?e of which had scarcely ever i
They were assembled forward of the j
quarter deck when the announcement ?
was made. When they understood the
news the men became drunk with joy. j
It would seem as if they had been sud- .
denly stricken mad. Some of them j
stared in paralyzed silence; others j
-broke into frantic cheers and yells; !
some reeled and shuddered like drunk- !
en men. The one person who preserve:! j
bis imperturbable calmness was Mor- j
gan himself. The gratitude of these j
men toward him was overwhelming. !
Under his leadership they had achieved j
such a triumph as had scarcely ever
befallen them in the palmiest days of
their career, and with little or no loss J
they had been put in possession of a i
prodigious treasure. They crowded j
about him presently with enthusiastic j
cheers of affection and extravagant
vows of loving service.
The general joy, however, was not
shared by the rescued buccaneers. Al?
though they had but a few hours be?
fore despaired of life in the loathsome
depths of the vile hold and they had
been properly grateful for the sudden
and unexpected release which had giv?
en them their liberty and saved them
from the gibbet, yet it was not in any
He seized the dazed man by tte tnroa?
human man, especially a buccaneer, to
view with equanimity the distribution j
-or the proposed distribution-of so j
vast a treasure and feel that he could j
not share in it. The fresh air and the
food and drink had already done much j
for those hardy ruffians. They were j
beginning to regain, if not all their i
strength, at least some of their courage
and assurance. They congregated in
little groups here and there among (
Morgan's original men and stared with
lowering brows and flushed faces at the j
frantic revel in which they could not
participate. Not even the cask of rum ?
which Morgan ordered broached to
celebrate the capture and of which all j
hands partook with indiscriminate vo- j
racity could bring joy to their hearts. ?
After matters had quieted down some- I
what-and during this time the galleon !
had been mainly left to navigate her- ?
self-Morgan deemed it a suitable oe- j
casion to announce his ultimate de
signs to the men.
"Gentlemen, shipmates and bold i
hearts all," he cried, waving his hand j
?or silence, "we have captured the j
richest prize probably that floats on j
the ocean. There are pieces of eight ?
and silver bullion enough beneath the ?
hatches, as I have told you, to make ;

"But, men," he continued, "I hardly !
know what to do with it."
"Give it to us!" roared a voice, which j
was greeted with uproarious laughter, j
"We'll make away with it."
Morgan marked down with his eye j
the man who had spoken and went on. :

was rudely interrupted.

He was confident that he had th
backing of the men and in that cont
dence grew bold with reckless temer
ty. Flushed by the victory of the mon
ing. the rum he had imbibed, intoxica
ed by the thought of the treasure whic
was to be shared, the man went on in
"No, Sir Harry Morgan, we've decic
ed to follow our latest plan. We',

"You fool!" thundered Morgan. "Yoi

"And who is to make it known, pray

"Aye, aj'o! Eight you are!" roared the
men, surging aft
"You mutinous hound!" yelled Mor?
gan, leaning forward in a perfect fury
of rage, and his passion was something
appalling to look upon.
Hornigold clutched at the helm,
which had been deserted by the seamen
detailed to it during the course of the
hot debate. The old man cast one long,
anxious glance to windward, where a
black squall was apparently brewing.
But he said nothing. The argument was
between Morgan and his crew: there
was no need for him to interfere.
Teach, Raveneau, Yelsers and the of?
cers drew their pistols and bared their
swords, but most of the crew were also
armed, and if it came to a trial of
strength the cabin gang was so over?
whelmingly outnumbered that it would
have been futile to inaugurate a con?
Morgan, however, was frantic with
rage. Ile did not hesitate a second.
He rushed at Master Bartholomew
Sawkins, and, brave man as that sailor
was, he fairly quailed before the ter?
rific incarnation of passionate fury his
captain presented. The rest of the
crew gave back before the furious on?
set of Sir Henry.
"You aog!" he screamed, and before
the other realized his intention he
struck him a fearful blow in the face
with his naked fist. Always a man of
unusual strength, his rage had bestow?
ed upon him a herculean force. He
seized the dazed man by the throat and
waist belt ere he fell to the deck from
the force of the h'.ow and, lifting him
up, literally pitched him overboard.
Before the crew had recovered from,
their astonishment and terror at this
bold action the buccaneer officers
closed behind their captain, each cov?
ering the front ranks of the men with
a pistol. At the same instant the other
men, Kingrose's crew, came shoving
through thc crowd, snatching such
arms as they could in the passage, al?
though most of them had to be satis?
fied with belaying pins.
"We're with you. Captain Morgan,"
cried one of their number. "We've had
no treasure, and it seems we're not
to have a share in this either. We've
been in the south seas," continued the
speaker, a man named L'Olionois,
noted for his cruelty, rapacity and suc?
cess, "and thc captain speaks truly.

The man who had been thrown over?
board had shrieked for help as he
fell. Thc splash he had made as he
struck the water had been followed
by another. A Spanish priest standing
by the rail had seized a grating and
thrown it to the man. Morgan took
in thc situation in a glance.
"Who threw that grating?" he cried.
"I, senor," composedly answered the
priest, who understood English.
Morgan instantly snatched a pistol
from Dc Lussan's hand and shot the
"i allow no one," he shouted, "to
interfere between me and tho discipline
of my men! You speak well, L'Olio?
nois. And for you, hounds," ho roared,

men, "got back to your duties unless
you wish instant death! Scuttle me,
if I don't blow up the galleon unless
you immediately obey! Bear a hand
there! If you hesitate- Fire on
them!" he cried to his officers. But the
men in the front did not linger. They
broke away from his presence so
vehemently that they fell over one an?
other in the gangways.
"""Doirt Tire!" The'y "cried in terror.
"We'll go back to duty!"
Morgan was completely master of

"That's well. Heave that carrion

Shot tiie man
The ship, like all Spanish ships, was
unhandy and a poor sailer. Morgan,
however, got all out of her that mor?
tal man could get. With nice seaman?
ship he threw her np into the wind,
hove her to and dropped a boat over?
board. Teach had volunteered for the
perilous command of her, and the best
men on the ship were at the oars.
Sawkins had managed to catch the
grating and was clinging feebly when
the boat swept down upon him. They
dragged him aboard and then turned
to the ship. The sinister squall was
rushing down upon them from the
black horizon with- 'errific velocity.
The men bent their backs and strained
at the cars as never before. It did not
seem possible that they could beat the
wind. The men on the ship besought
Morgan to fill away and abandon their
"No!" he cried. "I sent them there,
and I'll wait for them if I sink the
Urged by young Teach to exertion
superhuman, the boat actually shot
under the quarter of the galleon be?
fore the squall broke. The tackles
were hooked on. \ and she was run up
to the davits with all her crow aboard.
"Up with the helm!" cried Morgan
the instant the boat was alongside.
"Swing the mainyard and get the can?
vas off her! Aloft topmen! Settle
away the halyards! Clew down! Live?
And as the ship slowly paid off and
gathered way the white squall broke
upon them. The sea was a-smother
with mist and rain. The wind whipped
through the shrouds and rigging, but
everything held. Taking a great bone
in her teeth, the o!d Almirante Heca?de
heeled far over to leeward and ripped
through the water to the southward
at such a pace as she had never made
before. On the quarter deck a drench?
ed, shivering and sobbing figure knelt
at Morgan's feet and kissed his hand.
"Wilt obey me in the future?" cried
the captain to the repentant man.
" 'Fore God, I will, sir," answered
"That's well/' said the old bucca?
neer. "Take him forward, men, and
let him have all the rum he wants to
take out the chill of his wetting."
"You stood by me that time, Sir Hen?
ry," cried young Teach, who had been
told of Morgan's refusal to fill away,
"and by heaven I'll stand by you in

"What's our course now, captain?"
asked Hornigold as soon as the incident
"Sou'west by west half west" an?
swered Morgan, who had taken an ob?
servation that noon, glancing in the
binnacle as he spoke.
"And that will fetch us where?" ask?
ed the old man, who was charged with
the duty of the practical sailing of the
"To La Guayra and Venezuela."
"Oho!" said the old boatswain. "St.
Jago de Leon, Caracas, t'other side of
the mountains, will be our prize?"
"Aye," answered Morgan. " 'Tis a
rich place and has been unpillaged for
a hundred years."

FARMING AS A BLsINESS.
Learning thc Cost ol' Producing Field
In 1802 and ly 9 Z, Professor W. M.
' Hays, now assistant secretary of Ag?
riculture, inaugurated a large num
1 ber of experiments in crop rotation at
j the North Dakota and Minnesota ex
\ p?riment stations These experiments
jare planned to run for twenty years
! at least, and the value of certain ar?
rangements of crops in the rotation is
already apparent. Yields from the dif?
ferent rotations are carefully recorded,
and the gross incomes are being de?
termined. The real value of a cer?
tain rotation can only be accurately
measured by net profit, however, as
labor and cash expenditures will vary
to an appreciable extent with the ar?
rangement of crops in the rotation.
The cost of producing field crops
cannot be determined, for practical
purposes, on the experiment farms,
because labor is too expensive and
plot work is not comparable to field
conditions. Realizing this obstacle in
the path of 'completing these rotation
studies, the Minnesota Experiment
Station, co-operating with the Bu?
reau of Statistics of the United States
Department of Agriculture, began in
1902 an exhaustive study into the cost
of producing field crops in Minneso?
ta under actual farm conditions. Spe
cial agents of the Eureau of Statis?
tics were placed in three of the most
representative farming districts in
Minnesota. In each district fifteen or
sixteen farmers were interested in the
work, and agreed to give labor reports
and all cash items and miscellaneous
data relating to the production of the
crops. The "route-statistician," as
the special agent came to be called,
makes a daily visit to each of these
farms and secures a report of all the
labor performed the previous day,
distributing it to the various crops
and enterprises. Each year the farms
are surveyed and a plat made
showing the exact acreage of
thc crop?, pasture iands, and waste
areas upon which statistics are being
recorded. Depreciation of farm ma?
chinery and harnesses, and the cash
rental value of the land, the cost of
man-labor and horse-labor on the
farm, are all being accurately deter?
mined and worked into general prob?
lem of finding out what it costs the
farmer to produce an acre bf corn,
oats, wheat and hay.-Review of Re?
