the captain's mortified fury helped to
restore Philip's sanity. Lifting Iris'
glowing face to his own, he whispered
"Tell me, sweetheart, how comes It
that our Brazilian friend is here?1
"He ran away when some shots
were fired." which was rather unfair
of Iris. "He said the launch had been
sunk by a man-of-war"
"But he Is wrong. I saw no man-of-war.

her daughter. They have been more
than kind to me already."
She turned to the sulky San Bena
vides and told him what. HoRler had
suggested. He brightened at that and
begau a voluble speech to Lulsa Go
mez. Interrupting himself, he In
quired in French bow Hozier proposed
to reach the rock.
"On a catamaran. There are two on
the beach, aud I can handle one of
them all right," said rhlllp. "But
what Is this yarn of a warship? When
last I sighted the launch she was
standing out of the harbor, and the
first clouds of the storm helped to
screen her from the citadel."
Ills Interpreted. San Benavides re
pented his story of the rockets. In her
present tumult the girl forgot the
touch of realism with regard to the
firing thnt he had heard. Certainly
there was a good deal of promiscuous
rifle shooting after the departure of
the launch, but warships use cannon
to enforce their demands, aud the
boom of a big guu had not woke the
echoes of Fernando Noronba that
night. Philip deemed the present no
time for argument. He despised San
Benavides and gave no credence to
him. Just now the Brazilian was an
evil that must be endured.
Luisa Gomez promised to help in
every possible way. Her eyes sparkled
at the sight of gold, but the poor wo
man would have nsslsted them out of
sheer pity. Nevertheless the gift of
a couple of sovereigns, backed by the
promise of many more If her husband
devoted himself to their service, spur
red her to a frenzy of activity.

small boat was being pulled cautiously

Iris gasped. She heard Hozier mut

vides reveuled his dismay by an oath
and a convulsive tightening of the
hands that rested on the girl's shoulders.
Hozier stroTe with a few desperate
strokes of the paddle to reach the shad
ows of the passage before the cata
maran was seen by the boat's occu
pants. He might have succeeded. But
there was even a greater probability
that the unwieldy catamaran might be
