CHAPTER XXIII. l Know not what had arousod me, kut I found myself out of my bunk, on jny foot, wldo awake, my soul vlbrat Ins to thfi warning of dangor as It might havo thrlllftd to a trumpot ca'll throw opon the door. The cabin light was burning low. I saw Maud, my JMaud. straining and struggling and crushod in tho ombraco of Wolf Lar Bon's arms. I could soo tho vain beat and flutter of hor as bIio strove, press Ing ber faco against his broast. to escape from him. All this I saw on tho Tory instant of soolng and as I prong forward. I struck him wi(h my fist, on tho laco, os ho ralsod bis head, but it wns V puny blow. He roared in a foroclous, anlmnl-liko way, and gavo mo a shove with his hand. It was only a shovo, a flirt of tho wrist, yot so tremendous waa hia strength that I was hurlod backward as from a catapulL I struck tho door of tho stateroom which had formerly boon Mugridge'u, splintering and (smashing tho panols with tho im Jpact of my body. I struggled to my feet, with difficulty dragging myself Tiear of tho wreckod door, unawaro of any hurt whatever. I was conscious only of an overmastering rago. 1 think 3, too, cried aloud, as I drow tho knlfo at my hip and sprang forward a soe oud time. Dut something had happoned. They were roellng apart. I waa closo upou Rim. my knlfo uplifted, but I withheld the blow. I waa puzzled by tho strange ness of It Maud was loaning against Che wall, one hand out for support: but he was staggering, his loft hand pressed against hla forehead and cov ering his eyes, and with tho right ho was groping about him In a dazed sort at way. It struck against tho wall, ted his body seemed to expross a mus cular and physical relief at the con tact, as though be bad found his bear- tags, bis location In space as well as feemethlng against which to lean. , Tuafi I saw N4 again. All Bay 1'. wvnianr rv jack uyiporV wrongs nnd humiliations Unshod upon mo with a dazzling brightnoss, all that I had sufforod and others had suffered at his hands, nil tho enormity of tho man's vory exlstonco. I sprang on htm, blindly, Insanely, and drovo the knlfo Into his shouldor. I know thon, that it was no moro than a flesh wound had folt tho stool grate on his shout-dor-hlado and I ralsod tho knlfo to strlko at a moro vital part. Dut Maud had soon my first blow, and sho crlod, "Don't! Plcaso don't!" I droppod my arm for a moment, and a momont only. Again tho knlfo was raised, and Wolf Larson would havo suroly dlod had aho not stopped bo twocn. Hor arms woro around mo, hor hair was brushing my face. My pulse rushed up In an unwontod manner, yot my rago mountod with It. Sho looked mo bravely In tho oyos. "For my sako," sho begged. "I would kill him for your sako!" I crlod, trying to froo my arm without hurting her. "Hush!" sho said, and laid hor An gora lightly on my Hps. I could havo kissed them, had I dared, oven thon, In my rago, tho touch of thom was so swoot, so vory sweot. "Please, plcaso," sho pleaded, and sho disarmed mo by tho words, as I was to dlscovor thoy would ovor disarm mo. I stepped back, separating from hor, and roplncod tho knlfo In its sheath. I looked at Wolf Larson. Ho still prossed his loft hand against his fore hoad. It covorod his oyes. His hoad waB bowed. Ho Boomed to havo grown limp. His body was Bagging at tho hips, his great shouldors woro droop ing and shrinking forward. "Van Woyden I" ho callod hoarsely, and with a noto of fright In his voice. "Oh, Van Woydon! whoro aro you?" I looked at Maud. Sho did not speak, but nodded hor head. "Hero I am," I answered, stopping to his sldo. "What Is tho raattor?" "Help mo to a seat," ho said, in tho samo hoarso, frlghtonod volco. "I am a sick man, a vory sick man, Hump," ho said, aa ho loft my sustain ing grip and sank Into a chair. "What la tho matter?" I asked, rest ing my band on his shouldor. "What can I do for you?" Dut ho shook off my hand with an irritated movement, and for a long I 8aw Maud Crushed In the Embrace of Wolf Larsen's Arms. time I stood by his sido in sllenco. Maud was looking on, hor faco awod nnd frightened. What had happoned to him wo could not Imagine "Hump," ho Bald at last, "I must got Into my bunk. Lend mo a hand. I'll bo all right In n llttlo whllo. It'll thoso dnmn hoadachos, I bollovo, I was afraid of thom. I had a fooling no, I don't know what I'm talking about Help mo Into my bunk." Dut whon I got him Into hla bunk ho again burled his faco In his hands covorlng hla oyos, and aB Lturnod to go I could hoar him murmuring, "I am a sick man, a vory sick man." Maud lookod at mo Inquiringly as I omorgod. I shook my head, saying "Somothlng has happoned to htm. What, I don't know. Ho !b .helpless, and frlghtonod, I Imagine, for tho first timo in his llfo, It must havo occurred boforo ho rocolvod tho knlfo-thruBt which mado only a superficial wound You must havo soon what happoned." Sho Bhook her hoad. "I saw noth ing. It la just as mysterious to mo, Ho suddonly roloased mo and stag gored away. Dut what shall wo do? What shall 1 do?" "If you will wait, pleaso, until I come back," 1 answered. I wont on dock. Louis waa at tho whool. "You may go for'ard and turn in," I said, taking It from him. He was quick to oboy, and I found mysolf alono on the dock of tho Ghost. As qulotly as was possible, I clowod up tho topsails, loworod tho flying Jib and staysail, backed tho Jib ovor, and flat tened the mainsail Thon I went be low to Maud. I placed my finger on my lips for Bllonce, and entorod Wolf Larson's room. Ho wns in tho samo position In which I had loft him, and his hoad was rocking almost writh ingfrom sldo to Bido. "Anything I can do for you?" 1 asked. Ho mado no roply at first, but on my ropeatlng tho question ho answered, "No, no; I'm all right. Lcavo mo alono till morning." Dut as I turned to go I noted that his head hnd resumed its rocking motion. Maud was waiting patiently for mo, and I took notlco, with a thrill of Joy of tho queenly poise of her head nnd hor glorious, calm eyes. Calm and suro thoy were as hor spirit Itsolf. "Will you trust yoursolf to mo for a Journey of six hundred miles or so?" I asked. "You moan 7" sho asked, nnd I knew sho had guessed aright "YeB, I mean Just that," I replied. "Thoro is nothing loft for us but the opon boat." "For mo, you mean," sho said. "You aro cortainly as safo hero bb you havo boon." "No, thoro 1b nothing loft for us but tho opon boat," I Iterated stoutly. "Will you plcaso dress as warmly as you can, at onco, and raako Into a bundlo whatovor you wish to bring with you?" "And mako all haste," I added, as sho turned toward hor statoroom. Tho lazaretto was directly beneath tho cabin, nnd, opening tho trapdoor In tho floor nnd carrying a candlo with mo, I dropped down and began over hauling ttio nhip'H storos. I selected mainly from tho canned goods, and by tho timo I wns ready, willing handa wero oxtonded from abovo to receive what I passed up. Wo worked In silonco. 1 helped my self also to blankets, mittens, oilskins, caps, and such things, from tho slop chost. It was no light adventure, thin trusting oursolves in a small boat to so raw and stormy a sea, and it waa imporativo that wo should guard our selves against cold and wet. Wo worked feverishly at carrying our plunder on dock and depositing It amidships, so feverishly that Maud, whoso strength was hardly a positive quantity, had to give over, exhausted, and sit on tho stops at tho break of tho poop. This did not servo to rocovor hor, and sho lay on her back, on tbo hard dock, arms stretched .out and wholo body relaxod. It was a trick i romombored of my sister, and I know sho would soon be herself again. 1 know, also, that weapons would not como amiss, and I ro-ontered Wolf Lar son's statoroom to got his riflo and shotgun. I spoko to him, but ho mado no answer, though hla head was still rocking from sldo to sldo and ho was not asloep. "Good-by, Lucifer," I whlspored to myself as I softly closed tho door. Next to obtain was a stock of am munition an easy matter, though I bad to onter tho steorago companion- way to do It Horo tho hunters Btorod tho ammunition boxes thoy carried in tho boats, and horo, but a fow feot from their noisy royola, I took posses sion of two boxes. Noxt, to lower a boat Not so Btmplo a task for ouo man. Having cast off tho lashings, I hoisted first on tho forward tacklo, then on tho aft. till the boat cleared) the rail, when I lowered away, ono tacklo and thon tho othor, for a couplo of foot, till it hung snugly, abovo tho wator, against tho schoonor's sldo. I mado certain that It contained tho proper oqulpmont of oars, rowlocka and sail. Water waa a consideration, and l roDbed eyery boat aboard of Its breaker. As thero woro nlno boats all told, It meant that wo should bavo plenty of water, and ballast 8B woll, though thoro was tho chanco that tho boat would bo ovor loadod, what of tho genoroua oupply of other things I waB taking. A fow minutes sufficed to finish the loading, and I lowered tho 'boat into tho wator. As I holped Maud over tho rail and folt hor form closo to mine, It was all I could do to koop from cry ing out, "I love you I I lovo you!" Truly Humphroy Van Woyden was at last In lovo, I thought, as hor lingers clung to mine whllo I loworod hor down to tho boat. I held on to tho rail with ono hand and sunDortcd hor ...ii. nt tho m0mont of tho feat. It was a Btrongth 1 had not possessed a fow monthB boforo, on tho duy I said good by to Charloy Furusoth and started for San Francisco on tho Ill-fated Martlnoz. As tho boat ascended on a sea, hor feet touched and I released her hand? I cast off tho tackles and leaped after her. I had novor rowed In my life, but I put out tho oars and nt tho expense of much effort got tho boat clear of tho Ghost Then 1 oxporlmonted with tho sail. 1 hnd soon tho boat steerors and hunters sot tholr spritsatlo many times, yot this was my first attempt, What took thom possibly two minutes took mo twenty, but in tho end I sue cooded In sotting nnd trimming it, and with tho stoorlng oar In my hands hnulod on tho wind. "Thoro lies Japan," I romarkod, "straight boforo ua." "Humphrey Van Woydon," sho said. "you aro a bravo man." "Nay," 1 answered, "It Is you who aro a bravo womon." Wo turned our heads, swayed by a common tmpulso to sen tho Inst of tho Ghost. Hor low hull lifted and rolled to windward on a sea; hor canvas loomed darkly In tho night; her lashed whool crenkod as the rudder kicked; thon sight and sound of hor faded away and wo woro alono on tho dark sea. CHAPTER XXIV. Thero Is no nocd of going Into an extended rocttal of our BUfforlng In tho Email boat during tho many days we woro drlvon and drifted, hero and thoro, willy-nilly, across tho wide oxpnnso of ocean.

It was an ovon cholco betweon this and tho west nortliwostorly courso which tho wind pormlttod, but tho warm airs of the south fan nod my doslro for a warmor soa and swayed my decision. In throo hours It was midnight, I woll remember, and as dark as I had ovor soon It on tho sea tho wind, still blowing out of tho southwost, roso fu riously, and onco ugaln I waa com pelled to sot tho sea-anchor.

Sho rellovod mo at tho balling hole from timo to timo, and bravoly she throw out tho wator and facod tho storm. All things aro relative. It was no moro than a stiff blow, but to ub, fighting for Ufa in our frail craft, it waB lndood a storm. Cold and cheerless, tho wind beat ing on our faces, tho wblto soas roar ing by, we struggled through the day.

I feared greatly that sho might dlo In tho night; but day broko, cold and choorloss, with tho samo clouded sky and boating wind and roaring seas. (TO BE CONTINUED.) CARLYLE CALLED US BORES Equality Developed Monotony of Type In Country's Second Epoch, Was His Assertion. Prof. Max Farrand of Yalo, lectur ing on "American Traits" aa developed In the epoch of 1812 to 1840, said at Lowell lnstltuto recently, the Kan sas City Star observes; 'Equality of status 1b, of course, not a characteristic, but a condition; yot it is a factor which has led to tho development of Important Ameri can traits.

A Sermon for Quiet People By REV. L. W. GOSNELL Superintendent o( Men, Moody IHble Institute of Chicago. TEXT The God of iBaac. Exod. 3:f. Speaking of tho story of Isaac, found In tho Old Testament, Mark Guy Pear bo Bays: "Turning from tho Btory of Abraham, with its stirring scones and splen did triumphs, to tho uneventful rec ord of Isaac, is as when on a breezy day I havo stood on tho cliff and watch od tho waves na thoy leapt in showers of Bpray, whilst tho birds havo screamed and wheeled about tho crags, and far out at sea tho ships havo left their traces In foam thon turning inland, I havo gono down tho hillside Into tho still valley, sheltered from tho winds, and thero tho lonely plowman drovo tho team across tho heavy clods. All Is still dull, If you pleaso to call It bo that Is Isaac." As another has put it, "tho salient feature of hla life 1b that it has no salient features." Ho Is a typo of tho commonplaco people of whom God has mado so many. How thrilling it is to know that God is the God of Isaac and Of all liko unto him! Isaac's life was no doubt a disap pointment to men. Ho camo by miraculous birth, yet proved to bo Just an ordinary man. Many havo hoped to bo tho happy fathers of artists, sculptors, musicians and scholars, but their children hnvo turned out to bo houso painters, stono masons, and dry goods clerks. Still, It Is well to have entertained thoso hopes, for if our children aro no moro remarkable than thoy are, In splto of our ambitions, what might thoy havo been if wo had had no ambitions for them. Isaac's llfo was directed by God. This appears especially in tho story of his marriage, found in Gen. 21. "Tho stepB of a good man aro ordered of tho Lord," no matter how dull and brown his llfo may bo outwardly; nn "ordinary" llfo may still bo an "or dered" life. Horace Dushnoll, In his great sermon on "Every Man's Llfo a Plan of God," states his themo thus: "That God haB a definite plan for every human person, girding him visibly or Invisibly for some exact thing, which It will be tho true sig nificance and glory of his life to havo accomplished." In character Isaac was marked by the passive virtues. Wo do not ap preciate patience, gentleness, meek ncsB, and other quiet graces as much as we should. Submission was a marked element In his make-up. When Abraham would offer him as a sacrifice on Mount Mo riah ho made no resistance, though the knife actually flashed ovor him. What a picture he was of our Lord In his submission (Heb. 10:5-7). This olement appears again In Isaac's Ufa at Gerar. As fast as ho would dig wells at this place tho Philistines would contend for them, but Instead of quarreling, Isaac would move on and dig another well. The outcome of his meekness was that the Philis tines came to him to mako a cov enant, saying, "Wo saw certainly that tho Lord was with thee." Even now thoro is a sense in which tho meek Inherit tho earth. This quiet man was thoughtful, and we see him going out to meditate in the fields at the eventide (Gen. 24:63). Quiet people may know things better than othors and know them moro deeply. This twentieth century, "with bloodshot eyo and fevered pulse," has loBt tho art of meditation, hut only when truth saturates us docs It really become a llfo power. Isaac was affectionate, au manifest ed In his relation to his mother nnd his wlf fOen. 2:fl). "We need Buch pcopl?
