The eagerness of the rrew to pet a
berth In the lifeboat was a hit embarras
sing to Capt. Haddock. It was a qties
tlon of selecting volunteers, although tho
trip was one of the most perilous ever
undertaken by the men of the merchant
man. The Olympic has h splendidly
trained lot of oarsmen, made up of
tokers, stewards, oilers and seamen. They
manned fourteen boats on tho port side,
and lowered them Into the boiling sea.
Not one boat was damaged, although tho
drop from tho boat deck Is more than fifty
feet. Naturally Capt. Haddock had made
a lino lee with his hlsh sides to do the
trlrk In shlpshapa.

Then the Olympic, on signal from the
battleship, headed for the nearest haven,
Loch Swllly, about twenty miles away.
If that hawer hail held the Audacious
might havo been saved for repair. The
power of the Olympic whs ample to drag
even a heavier ship with engines dead
through a tempr stuous sa, but the steel

a boom after the Olympic had been only
a few minutes under way, Capt, Haddock

An hour later all who were awake

received n letter from l,ondon which will

Hrey, an English aviator. In this country.
Tho letter tells of the capture of Capt.

"You may not have heard the latest
news about Capt. Robin Orey (or Plight
ommander Orey as he now Is, having
been promoted shortly after tho outbreak
of war). Ho dtotlngulshed himself greatly
In tho early part of September with tho

"On Ootohor 3 he was reported 'missing,'
and for a fortnight nothing was heard
of him, to tho anxiety of his friends and
relations, However, about a week or ten
days ago a report reached this countrv
from Herlln via Copenhagen that a Hrltlsh
aeroplane had been brought down and Its
pilot, 'Col. drey.' tnken prisoner and sent
to Darmstadt. This report was later con
firmed by our War Otllco here.
"On Saturday last we had a visit from
Lady Kden, Capt. rey' sister, and she
