KIBBEY'S FINE RALLY FIVE RUNS IN THE NINTH Defeated East Haven Yesterday in a Game That Was Sensational Both of the Teams Fielded Poorly. A batting rally in tho ninth inning which netted them five runs, won the game for the Kibbeys, at Kasthaven yesterday. The playing of both teams was fast at times, but each team made its full share of errors. The hospital boys managed to fall down however, just when their opponents were hitting the ball and consequent ly the game slipped through their fingers after having it won to 4. Lancaster pitched nice ball only allowing five hit.-? while his team mates got just twice that number. His wildness was responsible for two of Easthavon's runs however, as two men scored after receiving free trans portation to first. R. H. E.

Then he constructed a gigantic sky sign on Summit rock, the small cluster of bowlders on top of the cliff. His chief difficulty was to hoist into place tho tall polos lie needed, and for this purpose ho had to again visit Palm Tree rock in order to secure the pulley. By exercising much ingenuity in devis ing shear-legs he at last succeeded in lifting the musts into their Hot tod re ceptacles, where they were firmly se cured.

Clode and enough about birds to Vr.lTorentiate between carnivorous species and those fit for human food, while tho salt in their most fortunate supply of hams rendered their meals almost epicurean From Ihe rusty rilles on the reef Jenks brought away tho bayonets and secured all the screws, bolts and other small odds and ends which might be serviceable. From the barrels he built a handy grate ti facilitate Iris" cook ing operations, and a careful search each morning amid tho ashes of any burned wreckage accumulated a store of most useful nails. Tho pressing need for n safe yet Ac cessible bathing place led him and the girl to devote one afternoon to a com plete survey of tho coast lino. By this time they had given names to all the chief localities. The northerly promon torv was naturally christened North capo; tho western. Kuropa point: the portion of the reef l"tween their hab itation and r.nlm Tree rock became Filey Brig: the other section Northwest reef. The fiat sandy passage across the island, containing the cave, house and well, was named Prospect park, and the extensive stretch of snnd on the southeast, with its guard of broken reefs, wa.5 at once dubbed Turtle beach when Jenks discovered that an immense number of green turtles were paying their spring visit to the island to bury their eggs in the sand. The two began their tour of inspec tion by passing the scene of the first desperate struggle to escape from the clutch of the typhoon. Iris would not be content until the sailor showed her the rock beaind which he placed her for shelter vdiilo he searched for water. For a moment the recollection of their unfortunate companions on board ship brought a lump into her throat and dimmed her eyes. "I remember them in my prayers every night. she confided to him. "It seems so unutterably sad that they should be lost while we are alive and harpy." The man distracted her attention by pointing out the embers of their first tire. It was the only way to choke back the tumultuous feelings that sud denly stormed his heart. Happy! Yes, be had never before known such hap piness. How Ion,; would it last? High lip on the cliff swung the signal to anx ious searchers of the sea that here would be found the survivors of the Sirdar. And then when resev.e .came, when Miss Donne "became once more the daughter of a wealthy baronet and ho a disgraced and nameless outcast: lie set his teeth and savagely struck at a full cup of the pitcher plant which h&d so providentially relieved their killing thirst.

Everybody must admit this to be a scientific fact As to whether a cer tain beer is good; whether it combines purity and health fulness, is another matter. Here are some facts about MINCK'S Beer: From start to finish the beer comes in contact with nothing unclean. Every vessel, every pipe and finally the bottles and the kegs are sterilized before the entrance of the beer. An absolutely clean product, however, might not be healthful. The Minck Brewing Co. uses barley that is the best that American farmers can grow; hops that are imported from Bohemia hops of the greatest food value. These are the principal in gredients of Minck' s Beer, therefore healthful been The storing capacity of the Minck Company is adequate to age alV beer six months before it reaches the consumer. ...... . ii ..... : r ;;--.a ii.v :; 1 in need. I wish I could do something for it to make it the best and leafiest plant of its kind on the island." "Very well." ho answered, "you can gratify your witdi. A tinful of fresh water from the well applied daily to its roots will quickly achieve that end." The moroseness of his tone and man ner surprised her. For once her quick intuition failed to divine the source of his irritation. "You give your advice ungraciously," she said, "but I will adopt it neverthe less." A harmless incident, a kindly and quite feminine resolve, yet big with fate for both of them. Jenks' unwonted ill humor for the passage of days had driven from his face all its harshness and from his tongue all its assumed bitterness created a passing cloud until tho phys ical exertion of scrambling over the rocks to round the North capo restored their normal relations. At last they reached the south side, and hero they at once found them selves in a delightfully secluded and tiny bay, sandy, tree lined, sheltered on three sides by cliffs and rocks. "Oh." cried Iris excitedly, "what a lovely spot, a perfect Smugglers' cove!" "Charming enough to look at," was the answering comment, "but open to the sea. If you look at tho smooth ri band of water out there you will per ceive a passage through the reef. A great place for sharks. Miss Deane. but no place for bathers." They passed on. While traversing the coral strewn south beach, with its patches of white soft sand baking in the direct rays of the sun. Jenks per ceived traces of the turtle which swarmed in the neighboring sea. "Delicious eggs and tunic soup:' he announced when Iris asked hini why he was so intently studying certain marks on the sand, caused by the great sea tortoise during their nocturnal vis Its to the breeding ground. "If they are green turtle," he con tinued, "we are in the lap of luxury. They lard the alderman nnd inspire the poet. When a ship comes to our assistance I will persuade the captain to freight the vessel with them and make my fortune." "I suppose, under the circumstances, you were not a rich man, Mr. Jenks," said Iris timidly. "I possess a wealthy bachelor uncle who made mo his heir and allowed me four hundred a year, so I was a sort of Croesits among .-taff corps officers. When the smash carne he disowned me by -al !e. By soiling my ponies and my other belongings 1 was able to walk out of my quarters penniless, but free from debt." "And all through a deceitful wo man'."' "Yes." She ventured a further step. Was she very bad to you, Mr. Jenks?" He stopped and laushed actually roared at the suggestion. "Bad to me!" he repeated. ' I had nothing to do with her. She wa3 hum bugging her husband, not me. Fool that I was. I could not mind my own business." So Mrs. Costobell vras not flirting with the man who suffered on her ac count. It is a regrettable but true statement that Iris would willingly have hugged Mrs. Coatobell at that mo- roee aim p & mi y Call 42 New : 301 R Old Rounding Kuropa point, the sailor's eyes were fixed on their immediate surroundings, but Iris gazed dreamily ahead. Hence it was that she was the first to cry in amazement: "A boat! See. there! On the rocks!" There was no mistake. A ship's boat was perched high and dry on the north side of the cape. Even as they scrambled toward it Jenks understood how it had come there. When the Sirdar parted amidships the after section fell back into the depths beyond the reef, and this boat must have broken loose from its davits and been driven ashore here by the force of the western current. Was it intact? Could they escape? Was this ark stranded on the ishird for their benefit? If it were seaworthy, whither should they steer to Uose is lands whose blue outlines v're visible on tho horizon? Those and 'i hundred other questions coursed through his brain during the race over the rocks, but all such wild speculations were promptly settled when they reached the craft, for the keel and the whole of the lower tim bers were smashed into match wood. But there wore stores on board. Jenks remembered that Captain Boss" foresight had secured the provisioning of all the shin's boats soon after the first wild rush to steady the vessel after the propeller was lost. Masts, sails, oars, seats all save two water casks had gone, but Jenks. with eager hands, unfastened the lockers, and here he found a good supply of tinned meats and biscuits. They had barely recovered from the excitement of this find when the sailor noticed that be hind the rocks on which the craft was firmly lodged lay a small natural basil full of salt water, replenished and freshened by the spray of every gale j and completely shut off from ail sea- i ward access. It w:-s not more than four feet deep, beautifully carpeted with ?nnd and se cluded by rocks on all sides. Not the tiniest crab or fish was to be seen. It provided an ideal bath. Iris was overjoyed. She pointed to ward their habitation. "Mr. Jenks." she said, "I will be with you at teatime." He gathered all the tins ho was aW to carry and strode off. enjoininz her to tire her revolver if for the slightest reason she wanted assistance, and giv ing a parting warning that if she de layed too long he would come and shout to her. "I wonder." said the girl to herself, watching his retreating figure, "what he is afraid of. Surely by this time wo have exhausted the unpleasant sur prises of the island. Anyhow, now for a splash!" She was hardly in the water before she began to be afraid on account of Jenks. Snpr"Hf' anything happened t him while she was thoughtlessly enjoy ing herself here! So strongly did the thought possess her that she hurriedly dressed again and ran off to find him. He was engaged in fastening a num ber of bayonets transversely to a long piece of timber. "What are yon doing that for?' she asked. "Why did you return so sooa? Did anything alarm you?" "I thought you might get into mis chief," she confessed. ".No. On the other, hand. I am trying 39 to nuiKH troiinio lor any unweicomb ! visitors," he replied. "I intend to set this up in front of our cave in case wo are compelled to defend ourselves against an attack by savages. With this barring the way they cannot rush the position." On the nineteenth day of their resi dence on the island the sailor cllmled, as was his invariable habit, to tho Summit rock while Iris prepared break fast. At this early hour the horizon was clearly out ns the rim of a sap phire. He examined the whole arc of the sea with his glasses, but not a sail was in sight. According to bis calcu lations the growing anxiety ns to the fate of the Sirdar must long ere this have culminated in the dispatch from Hongkong or Singapore of a special search vessel, while British warships in the China sea would be warned to keep a dose lookout for any traces of the steamer, to visit all Islands on their route and to question fishermen whom they encountered. So help might coma any day or it might be long deferred. . He could not pierce the future, and It was useless to vex Ids soul with ques- tionings as to what might happen next week. The great certainty of the hour was Iris the blue eyed, smiling divin ity who had come into his life wait ing for him down there beyond tho trees, waiting to welcome him with a swfet voiced ; . efing. and he knew, with a fierce devouring joy. that her cheek would riot pale nor her lip trenv ble when he announced that at least another sun must set before the ex pected relief reached them. He replaced the glasses in their case nnd dived into the wood, giving a pass ing thought to ihe fart that the wind, after blowing steadily from the south, for nearly a week, had veered round to the northeast during the night. Did the change portend a storm? Well, they Mere now prepared for all such, eventualities, and he had not forgot ten that they possessed, among other treasures, a box of books for rainy days. And a rainy day with Iris for company! What gale that ever blew could offer such compensation for en forced idleness? The morning sped In uneventful work. Iris did not neglect her cherish ed pitcher plant. After luncheon it was her custom now to carry a dish ful of water to its apparently arid root, and phe rose to fulfill her self im posed task. ,J "Let me help you." said Jenks. "I am not very busy this afternoon." "No, thank you. I simply won't al low you to touch that shrub. The dear thing l'K)ks quite glad to see me. It drinks up the water as greedily as a thirsty animal." Iris had been gone perhaps five min utes when he heard a distant shriek, twice repeated, fd then there came faintly to his ears his own name, not "Jenks," but "Bobert." in the girl' voice. Something terrible had hap pened. It was a cry of supreme dis tress. Mortal agony or overwhelming terror alone could wring that nami from her lips. Precisely In such mo ments this man actd with the deci sion, the unerrirrg judgment, the In stantaneous acceptance of great risk to accomplish gre3t results, that marked him w:t a-- " :-rn i'.d:or.
