In the Potomac river yesterday afternoon,
had an unexpected bath. They were rescued
by three boatmen attracted by their
cries.
The occupants of the craft were off the
foot of 34th street, near Analostan Island,
about 2:30 o'clock, when one dipped his
paddle too deply and the frail craft was
upset. When the young men rose to the
surface after the sudden plunge, each swam
to the overturned canoe and grasped it.
Then they began to cry for help.
William Reynolds, who has a boathouse
nearby, heard the cries and, securing the
assistance of George Turbin and Frank
Branzell, went to the rescue of the canoeist*.
THE ivn
By STEWART EDWARD WHITE A
{ 1 (Copyright, 1807. by M
VIL
Captain Selover Loses His Nerve.
I lived In the place for three weeks. We
were afoot shortly after daybreak, under
way by sun-up, and at work before the
heats began. Three of us worked on the
buildings, and the rest formed a pack train
carrying all sorts of things from the shore
to the valley. The men grumbled fiercely
at this, but Capt. Selover drove them with
cllo-Vlf PAtro r.1 fVi/\(o Anlnlnne r>? f Anil n ?tj
Diigiiv * va ivi Hint uyimviis ui irnuij,;j.
"You're getting double pay," was his
only word, "earn It!"
They certainly earned It during those
three weeks. The things they brought up
were astounding. Hesldes a lot of Bclentlflc
apparatus and chests of chemical supplies,
everything that could possibly be required
had been provided by that omniscient young
man. After we had built a long, low structure,
windows were forthcoming, shelves,
tables, sinks, faucets, forges, burners, all
cut out titted and ready to put together,
each with Its proper screws, nails, clamps
or pipits ready to our hands. When we had
flnishifl. we had constructed as complete a
laboratory on a small scale as you could tlnd
on a college campus, even to the stone plllnr
down to bed-rock for delicate microscopic
experiments, and hot and cold water led !
from the springs. And we were utterly un- j
skilled. It was all Percy Darrow.
1 was toward the last engaged in snowing
on a fixture for the gem-ration of acetelyne
gas.
"DarrowT" said I, "there's one thing
you've overlooked; you forgot to bring a
cupola and a gilt weather-cock for this concern."
After the laboratory was completed, we
put up sleeping quarters for the two men,
wiuh wide porches well screened, and a
square, heavy storeroom. Hy the end of
the third week we had quite finished.
Dr. Schermerhorn had turned . with enthusiasm
to the unpacking of his chemical
apparatus. Almost immediately at the close
of the freight-carrying, he had appeared,
lugging his precious chest, this time suffering
the assistance of Darrow, and had
camped on the spot. We could not induce
him to leave, so we put up a tent for him.
Darrow remained with him by way of safety
against the men, whose measure, Ith'lleve,
be had taken. Now th.1t all Uie Work
was finished, the doctor put In a sudden appearance.
"Percy," said he, "now we will have the
defense built."
He dragged us with him to the narrow
part of the arroyo, just before it rose to
f ho Ipi'dl nf ttiA trulliiv
"Here we will build the stockade defense,"
he announced.
L>arrow and 1 stared at eacli other
blankly.
"Wihat for, ulr?" inquired the assistant.
"I haf come to be undisturbed." announced
the doctor, with owl-like, Teutonic
gravity, "and I will not be disturbed."
Darrow nodded to Trie and drew ills principal
aside. They conversed earnestly for
several minutes. Then the assistant returned
to me.
"No use," he shrugged in complete return
to his indifferent manner. "Stockade it Is.
r>ciier nmne it 01 luuneeu iuui iuk?, siauieu
out. Dig a trench across, plant your logs
three or four feet, bind them at the top.
That's his specification for It. Go at It."
"But," I expostulated, "what's the use of
it? Even If the men were dangerous, that
would Just make them think you did have
something to guard."
"I know that. Orders," replied Percy
Darrow.
We built the stockade in a day. When It
was finished we marched to the beach, and
never, save In the three instances of which
I shall later tell you, did I see the valley
again. The next day we was>hed our
clothes, and moved ashore with all our belongings.
"I'm not going to have this crew aboard."
stated Capt. Selover positively. "I'm going
to clean her." He himself stayed, however.
We rowed In, constructed a hasty fireplace
of stones, spread our blankets, and built an
unnecessary fire near the beach.
"Clean her!" grumbled Thrackles, "my
eye!"
"I'd rather round the Cape," growled Pulz
hopelessly. *
'<Come, now. It can't be as bad a9 all
that," I tried to cheer them. "It can't be
j more than a week or ten days' job, even if
we careen her."
"You don't know what you're talking
about," said Thrackles. "It's worse than
the yellow jack. It's six weeks at least.
Mind when we last 'cleaned her?' " he iuQulred
of Handy Solomon.
"You can kiss the Book on jt," replied he.
"Dowji by the line in that little swab of a
sand Island. My eye. but don t I remember!
I sweated my liver white."
'They smoked in silence.
"That's a main queer contrivance of the
perfessor's?tliat stockade-like," ventured
Solomon, after a little.
"He doesn't want any intrusion," I said.
"These scientific experiments are very delicate."
"Quite like," he commented non-committally.
We slept on the ground that night, and
next morning, under Cfipt. Selover's directions,
we commenced the task of lightening
the ship. He detailed the Nigger and Per
uosa ior special uuiy.
"I'll just see to your shore quarters," he
squeaked. "You empty her."
All day long we rowed back and forth
from the ship to the cove, landing the contents
of the hold. These, by good fortune,
we did not have to carry over the neck of
land, for just above the gravel beach was a
wide ledge on which we could pile the
stores. We ate aboard, and so had no opportunity
of seeing what Capt. Selover and
!,! until inir Than
we discovered that they had collected and
lowered to the beach a quantity of stateroom
doors from the wreck, and had trundled
the galley stove to the edge where It
awaited our assistance. We hitched a cable
to It, and let it down gently. The Nigger
was Immensely pleased. After some
experiment he got it to draw, and so cooked
us our supper on It. After supper, Capt.
Selover rowed himself back to the ship.
"Eagen," he said, drawing me aside,
"I'm 4oing to leave you with them. It's
better that one of us?I think as owner I
ought to bo aboard "
"Of course, sir," said I, "It's the- only
oroner Dlace for you."
"I'm glad you think so." he rejoined, apparently
relieved. "And anyway." he cried,
with a burst of feeling, "I hate the gritty
feeling- of It under my feet! Solid oak's the
only walking for a man."
He left me hastily, as though a trifle
ashamed. I thought he seemed depressed,
even a little furtive, and yet on analysis I
could discover nothing deflnite on which to
base such a conclusion.
It was rather a feeling of difference ffom
the man 1 ha* known. In my fatigue It
seemed hardly wortli thinking about.
T>he men had rolled themselves In their
blankets, tired with the long day.
Next morning Oapt. Selover was ashore
early. He had quite recovered his spirits,
and offered me a dram of French brandy,
which I refused. We worked hard again;
again the master returned at night to his
vessel, this time without a word to any of
lis; again the men. drugged by toll, turned
In early and slept like the dead.
We became entangled In a mesh of days
like these, during which things were accomplished,
but in which was no space for
anything but the tasks Imposed upon us.
The men for the most part had little to
say.
"For Dlos, eet is too mooch work!" sighed
Perdosa once.
"Why don't you kick to the Old Man,
then?" sneered Thrackles.
The silence that followed, and the sullenness
with which Perdosa readdressed himself
to hl? work, was significant enough of
Capt. Selover's pa6t relations with the men.
And how wo did clean-her! We stripped
her of every stitch and silver until alia
floated high, an empty hull, even her spars

now the crew's grumbling. We literally
went at her with a nail brush.
Capt. Selover took charge of us when we
had reached this period. lie and the Nigger
and Perdosa had long since finished the Installation
of the permanent camp. They
had built us huts from the wreck, collecting
stateroom doors for the sides, and hatches
for the roofs, huge and "Solid, with Iron
rings in them. The bronze and iron ventilation
gratings to the doors gave us glimpses

careened her and scraped and painted her

When we had quite finished, we litd tnn

and scraped, pounded and polished that.
These were Indeed days full of labor.
Being busy from murnltig nnt.l night w?
knew but little of what was about us W?
saw the open sea and the waves tumbling
over the reef outside. We saw the headlands.

that was all; th:it constituted our world.
In the evening sometimes we lit a big
bonfire, sailor fashion. Just at the edge of
the beaeh. There we sat at ease nnd
smoked our pipes in silence, too tired to
talk. Kven Handy Solomon's song was still.
Outside tile circle of light were mysterious
things?strange wavings of white bands,
hendings of figures, callings of voices, rustling
of feet. We knew them for tl.i surf
and the wind in the Brasses; but tin y with ?
not the les.s mysterious for that.
logically ("apt. Selover ami 1 si ould hav?
passed most of our evenings together. Ad
a matter of fact we so spent very few.
Early in the dusk the captain invariably
rowed himself out to Ills beloved .- hooner.
What he did there I do not know \V. could
see his light now In one part of I; r. new In
the other. Tire men claimed he was scrubbing
her teeth. "Old Scrubs'" th"y < ailed
him to his back; never Capt. Selover.
"He has to clean up after his ..wn feet,
he's so dirty," sagely proffered Handy Solomon.
And this was true.
The seaman's prophecy held goo 1. Seven
weeks held us at that Infernal job- seven
weeks of solid, grinding work. The worst
of It was, that we were kept at It eo
breathlessly, as though our very existence
were to depend on the headlong rush of
our labor. And then we had fully half tho
stores to put away again, and tin1 other
half to transport painfully over the lin k of
land from the cove to the beach.
So accustomed had I become to the routine
in which we were Involved, so habituated
to anticipating the coming day as exactly
like the day that had gone, that the
completion of our job caught me unite by
surprise. I had thrown myself down by
the lire prepared for the sann- old half hour
of drowsy nicotine, to be followed by the
accustomed heavy sleep, and the usual
early rising to toil. The evening was warm;
I half closed my eyes.
Handy Solomon was coming in last. Instead
of dropping to his place, he straddled

lie let them fall with a sharp exhalation.

The effect was electrical. We all sprang
to our feet and fell to talking at once.
"By , we're through!" cried Pule.
"I'd clean forgot It!"
The Nigger piled on more wood. We drew
closer about the fire. All the Interests In
life, so long held In Uie background, leaped
forward, eager for recognition. We spok??
of trivialities almost for the first time since
our landing, fused into a temporary but
complete good fellowship by the relief.
"Wonder how the old doctor is getting
on?" ventured Thrackles, after a while.
"The devil's a preacher! I wonder?" cried
Handy Solomon.
"Let's make 'em a call," suggested Puis.
"Don't believe they'd appreciate the compliment."
I laughed. "Better let them ^
make first call; they're the longer established."
This was lost on them, of course.
But we all felt Wndly to one another that
evening.
I carried the glow of It with me over until
next morning, and was therefore somewhat
dashed to meet Capt. Selover, with ''r
clouded brows and an uncertain manner.
He quite ignored my greeting.
"By , Eagen," he squeaked, "can you
think of anything more to be done?"
I straightened my bark and laughed.

Inquired. "Unless you gild the cabins, I
don't eee what else there can be to do."
Capt. Selover stared me over.
"And you a naval man!" he marveled.
"Don't you see that the only thing that
keeps this crew from gettln' restless la
keeping them busy? I've sweat a sight
more with my brain than you have wltli

Ezra. Where was the confidence In the
might of his two hands?
He seemed to read my thoughts, and went
on.
"I don't fee! sure here on this cussed
land. It ain't like a deck where a man has
some show. They can scatter. They can
hide. It ain't rig>!it to put a man ashore
alone with such a crew. I'm doing my best,
but it ain't gol/i' to be good enough. I .?

He would have maundered on, but I
seized his arm and led him out of possible
hearing of the men.
"Here, buck up!" I said to him sternly.
"There's nothing to bo scared of. If It
comes to a row, there's three of us and
we've got guns. We could even sail the "
schooner at a pincn, ana leave mem jiere.
You've stood them off before."
"Not ashore." protested Capt. Selover
wrakly.
"Well, they don't know that. For God's
sake don't let them see you've lost your
nerve this way." He did not even wince at
the accusation. "Put up a front."
He shook his head. The sand had completely
run out of him. Yet I am convinced
that If he could have felt the Jn-ive and

"You can wreck the Oolden Horn," I
suggested. "I don't know whether there's N
anything left worth salvage; but It'll bo
something to do."
Ho clapped me on the shoulder.
"Good!" he cried, "I never thought of
It."
"Another thing." said I, "you better give
them a day oft a week. That can't hurt
them and It'll waste Just that much more
time."

"Another tiling yet. You know I'm not
lazy, so it ain't that I'm trying to dodge
work. But you'd better lay me off. It'll be
so much more for tJie others."
"That's true," said he. ?
I could not recognize the man for what I
knew him to be. He groped. as one in the
dark, or as a sea animal taken out of its
element and placed on the sands. Courage
had given place to fear; decision to waver- ?
lng; and singleness of purpose to a divided
counsel. He who had so thoroughly dominated
the entire ship eagerly accepted advice
of me?a man without experience.

man?
