In 4 Uoanm.ee. The only words that C'apt. John Dickey, of the ltiistol scUcoi.ir lb's ttr, had understood were "cinq hotn laes." "Five on 'em," he muttered. "That! odds for the f roi--at rs." And in the deptli.s of his ploom lie fell to cut tin"; olf a pipeful of lolwcco. Truly, C.apt. John couldn't 1h very santru.ne. lie. luul sailel from Iloston s-veral days Wfore. bound for Hris tol town, or ancient l'emaipiid. it!i a general earpo for the stor-keeer.-f the jvcttlcmeiit, and alas! a French privatetrsin in hal overliauletl him away off the mouth of the. Kennebec. The Hester had tied, but. her flight was) about as nimble as the sctittlin away of an old hen floundering- throiip-h a liarnyard to escaie a toirmetitinirtloif. The Hester was all ripht for conveyintr mm, molasses, and other tie-essa rice bro.ul of Warn and tight of seiim. Hut she couldn't run aw ay. Her blunt nose bump'd afrainst the waves, her heavy siile.s smashed -lumsiily down upui the briinminr swell. The tough old bird spread all nail and lowles along, like a Itrahma scudding liefore the wind with tail sp-eaJ, but up came the pri vateeersmaii. his frisk 3- nose dipping, hi! clean sides flas-hiug back the glint of the wave, and the spume whizzing through the lee braces. "Kchoonaire, ahoi!" shouted a little man from er the taffrail. his knurly. rel nose gleaming from tinder has cap. The pursuer hail edged up on the Ulster's- ijuarter, and Capt. Dickey and his men were surlily eying the small craft. "What do you want?" roared back the etptain, hoarsely, just as though he didn't know all too well. The man with the knurly red nose screamed back: "Hcaf to; stand by for lrot'I" Capt. Dickey didn't haul around at once, however. He. turned to Mate Constant Judkins. "S'pise we've got to. J ml?" he re marked, ghomily. "Courtse you know w hat it means. We're gobbled." "Yes, and it's je-st a-s well to lie gob bled whole as piecemeal," .remarkeil Mate Judkins, carefully throwing his 1 11 il to lee. This was wisdom. So in a moment or so the Hester came slapping and clanging and foaming tiroui'd into the w ind. Xot. a moment too soon, for the privateersmanV long Tom had taken a rather determined squint at the main mast, of the schooner. Then Capt. Dickey, lis-tening atten tively and with saturnine fa-e, heard a gobble of French, in which lie dis tinguished "ein hommes." and that alone, for he wasn't a linguist. "Sank 'oru." he growled; "wal. come along and sank 'oni more- if you want to." Constant Judkins listened to the plilouy with puzzled face. "If I mav I" so pieit Soniferous, eap'n." 1m asked, "who's this "ere Sank Orni who is -omiiig aloard?" The captain didn't smile. "I heard "tin say in We-we lingo." he explained, "that they're going to put five prize men aloard us, and the Ixird only kiMsws where they'll take us!" The crew of the Hester .were four the skipper, the mate Ozarias Hudson. A. IL, able-lNlied seaman, ami Iterual .Ioiiith, -Mik and In-fiM-e the mast, .Now, as the captain strode forward front of the house to see al unit tlwow ing over the stern ladder, he saw Ozarias Hudson sitting 011 a npe. til in the waist, with head tied up. "What ails you?" snappnl the skip Ier. "TtKit'aohe. sir. and diim'd lad. too!" Ozarias ev'ulently was more distract ed by toothache than by a privateers man Denial .Toqtiith. who had had the lively suspicion that the privateers nian would ppa '" shots at them by way of exercise and practice, dodged out of --.ight into his sanctuary. Just as Capt. Dickey threw over the stern ladW a thought struck liini. "l?y (finger! " said he. and he jtimed as though he had suddenly taken in a mouthful of that condiment. He tltrew a hasty look over the side. The. private-rsruan was just getting its long loat in the water with the "sank'oras" and their sea chests. "Jud," he called back to the mate, "make fast the w heel and dodge down here into the waist under the lee of the bulwark." Judkins looked surprised, but he did so. "Come along lelow," commanded the skipper, and loth men followed him Down in hia bunk they found the cook. "lioys." said the captain, "there ain't time to go into long explanations, but I want you to know- right now that you're all in awful bad shap and I'm the only man about ship who can keep on his pgs." The amazement on the faces of the three gradually grew into tdirewd in telligence as they stared into the tw inkling- eyes of the "old man." "Tell us "what the trouble is w ith us. reouc.-tteil Iterual. "and we'll I-- the rsk-kct-t fellows you ever seed in about two flips of the flyin jib." "Wall," said the captain, "I ain't as good a liar as I wish I was, but I gues.-, it'll be liktly enough if a truck fell pud smashed your jaw, Ozarlits, frac tured your collar-bone and broke Deni al's leg. eh?" And the skipp-r extend ed a grin from his wrinkles. "Hain't that putting consid'ab.e re spnsibility on one truck, eap'n?" "Ther ain't no telling w hat a truck will do on a rampage," cheerfully re plied the captain. Forthwith he bundled the tooth achy Ozariari into his bunk and made him wrap more claliorate bandage; alxit his head and shoulders. Then he obliged Iterual to remove his trousers, and hastily but neatlv he strapped a bit of board non the cvik"s leg. hauihiging it with strips from his dishcloths. "I'd kind of like to know-the nature of my complaint," broke in Constant Judkins, "so that I can be practicin"." The captain oiidered. "1 tiiiHs.t- I might luive your :u m broken," h.- said, dubiously. "l'.ut one block eon Id n't very well knock out th nliolc crew. We've got to have a liltle variety, for them frog-eaters are suspicious cusses. Ktcr have yaller janders?" he asked of Judkins. "Xo." "Well, all you've got to do is to lay still and haul your mouth down. I'll daub on a little slush," and the captain skillfully rubbed tome of the yellirw oil over the mate's face. "Xow look tick, all of you," siid the captain as he. prepared to go on deek and receive the prize crew. "It'll help you to look sicker if you recollect that the frog 4-aters have a way of slitting wizens when they suspicion t-henani-gan." And he left. Of I he 1i lu-hmen who came over the rail none could taJk Knglish, and the captain eotil I n't talk French. Yes, he could .ie could say "jtotug shur," but he loftily forebore. However, when the new arrivals looked around suspiciously for the crew, and unslunp their carbin-.'s and appeared to apprehend ambush, the captain, with many waver; of his hands and much "we-ing," led two of t-lc lite lelow w ith an air like a rooster gallant ly conducting pullets to a worm ban juet. In pantomime he explained the sad plight he was in, and his c.-ew groaned dolefully at the proier times. He tried to explain to the Frenchmen how glad he was they had com and tsken the Hester at this time of danger. The men didn't seem to gra.sp that, p irt of the story, however, l'.ut the captain didi.'t care. The prize men were evi dently thoroughly convinced that lie low decks was just the ho.-pital it claimed to be, and after much inelftct nal jargon ajid muc-ii gesturing- they made the captaiu understand that he was to stay down and nurse his men. The captain was a good nurse. He ! oust have worked the faith cure on his devoted crew, for in the deep gloom of the dog watch three very deteriniued looking convalescents sneaked luire footed at his heels as he wormed aft in the shadow of the Hester's bulwark. The night was made for the enter- jirise. I was elouueii, ana irom me murk of the west a bumming breeze ung- in the shrouds and murmured dow n out of the hollows of he sails. One Frenchman was at the wh-el and one p-iiduliiiiK-d lack aid forward at the head of t he companion way.
