U, ML tlie Smugglers." In the year 1142 I was residing in the town of Uridport, situated on the south ern coa«t of England. I had been a surgeon in the British navy, but had retired, and wishing to spend the re mainder of my lite in quiet, had remov ed to this isoUted place, thinking I could here l>*-st find the rest I needed. My family consisted of myself and wife, having buried eur only child when "he was two months old. The neigh bors, knowing me to be a doctor, would frequentjy tall on me to atteud their sick, which I was wont to do out of charity, never a-king pay for my ser vices; had 1 done so I would not have much, as the majority of them were poor fishermen. At the time at which I write, tbe whole South coast of England from Land s End to the Isle of Wight, was infected by daring bands of smugglers. The rocky coast abounded m numerous caves, where they could secrete them selves and ♦heir goods until an oppor tunity was offered to dispose of them in the interior. In the neighborhood of Itridport thera was a particular gang under the leadership of a young man named Ben Darlington, but called by his comrades Dare devil Ben. The excise-men and coast guard had been after him fur a long time, but could never <jet hold of hitu, although they had caino vjry near it several times. He owned a little schooner called the Petrel, and there \*m not a vessel owned by the (••verninent that was fast enough to overtake him. One night in the month of December. when the wind was howling outside and the snow coming down thick and fast, I was sitting in my otudy nearly a«leep, thinking #>f the storm and the [>oor unfortunates who might be ex- I«mpcl to its fury, when I wa< roused from my revery by a loud knocking nt the door. On opening it, I beheld a man all inuflled up. lie told me there was a |*rson at the Sailor's Host, a tavern in the village, who had fallen from a horse and hurt his .shoulder, and that the landlord bad sent for me. Kidding him to wait, I went into the house, and telling my wife where 1 was going, put on my great coat, got my instruments, and told hiiu I was ready. We had gone about two hundred yards from my house, when suddenly three men sprang fro in the roadsi le, and before I could resist, a handker chief was put to my mouth to prevent me from making any outcry. They then told ine that if I kept quiet no harm would come to me, but if I attempted to give any alarm, they would kill me, puttiug the cold barrel of a pistol to my temple by way of emphasis. They then took in" to tin* ahnre where a boat being in waiting, we all got in, and after we were in our place and pushed off from the shore, tiiey removed the gag, first making me promise not to give any alarm. When the gag was removed I asked them what they meant by this outrage, when they answered that their captain, Dare-devil-Ben, had that day boeu shot in the shoulder in a conflict with the coast-guard, and they were afraid he wou'.d die if the wound was not attended to. Knowing I was thfc only person within twenty miles who could help him, and rupposing I would not cotne of my own free will, they had taken this method to make me come. 1 did not like the manner iu which they had treated me, but being powerless I said nothing. As si MIII we as were away from tke shore, the man in the stern, who seemed to be a sort of leader, told me I would have to be blindfolded, to keep me from seeing which way we went. Having no other alternative, I consented. After rowing for about an hour, through a very rough surf, wo stopped, and 1 heard the boat hit what I supposed was a rock. They proceeded to get out, and one ot them lifted me up and earried mo ashore. I was then told that 1 had to climb a ladder. When I got to tho top, 1 stood on what 1 supposed to be a broad platform 1 was led through a long and narrow |m»aage way. and when I stopped, the bandage wa< re moved from my eyes, and I found my self iu a large cave. Tlic appear «nce oi the itom, for such it looked itkf. \v* enough to a«w u braver fcrsnu than I Tin; «t*iliitgs ami side* were hung with cutlasses and pis tols, while t>om tlie ceiling was sus pended a Utnp which sent a faint glim mer through the apartment. All around me 1 could see ropes and blocks whioli l>etokentd the home of followers of the aea Abotit forty men were sit ting around, smoking am) taking In one corner I saw n sight w hich made ime open my eyes. I'jion a couch of old sails, coats aad cloth, wa* stretched the form of a young until, and kneeling by his side was a beautiful girl The ap pcaranoe of the couple struck nic at once. The youug tnan seemed t > l>e about twenty-five year* of age, and rather prepotjscssiug in appearance. He yaa about rix feet high and very BUl cul.tr. The expression *f hi* face w*i ou« of extreme pnin. The girl was a brunette of al»out eighteen years, and looked as if she uiight belong to a well to-do family. Vpon «»y entrance into the room she looked up. My guide j pninted to the couch, telling me, "there j is your p*ti*"iit, do what you can for him. Save him it you can, for your life depends ou it. If you kill him you must also die." 1 walked over to the couch, km It drtwn. auil soon ascertained the nature of t lio wound, He had f*en »bot in the flesby part of tho shoulder by i spent-twit which was imw rating on the sbrulder blade, wd had j»artly »liattered the bone A» *>on as I bad looked, the girl said.—"Oh. gocd sir, 1 know you are a Christian gentleman, and would »ot tike to tee anr one dif fer. IV«( try and saee my darling Ben. If be dies it will kill u»e. If you MTC hiui you shall t» amply rewarded. See. her» »• a bag containing twenty pounds. It shall be yours, onlj' prom ise to save bim." I told her not to be alarmed, M there iu no danger. All be wanted was earefal nursing. When the m« beard SEATTLE. WASHINGTON TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER a, 1577. this they sent up such a shout that I thought the roof voaid come down on us. The girl's face brightened, but (he said nothing. I s>»on had the ball extracted and th« wound dressed. Telliog the girl to take good care of him, as that nan all he wanted, I arose. She was profuse in her 'hanks, telling me she would ever pray for my welfare. Seeing I could do no more I signified my inteution t*» dep-trt. The girl called my former guide who cam* forward to lead me out not torgetting to bandage my eyes. I went out threu?h the same windiu? down the ladder, and iuto the !>oat, and in aa hoar was left standing on the shore from whence I started. Just after the l>oat had left the shore tu« man in the stern threw ma a bag, which, on opening, I feand to oooton one hundred pounds, wh'ch, together with the twenty already received, made a good recompense for the inconven ience I hid been nut to. I never forgot the night's adventure, but I never heard of Dare-devil-Ben, or any of Ins crew, until five years atterwards. when one day a carriage stopped at my door and a man and woman alighted. The man's face seemed familiar, but I did not know where to place him Coming up to me he grasped mv hand and said — "Are you not the mau who attended Dare devil Hen at one timer" Taking off my guard tor a moment I answered, "Yes." "I am the person you attended," he replied. After lie had recovered from his wound, lie had given up the business to his lieutenant. He bought a home alw>iit twenty miles inland, where he and his wife were happy in each other's love. I have visited him at bis home, anil mot with a hearty reception. I found him a very learned and agreeable person, and looking at him one would uot think that five years before he had been a ■>inug<»ler with a price set upon his head. I often think of that night's adveu ture, but J never blame myself for the part I took. I may have defeated the ends of justice by deing what I did, but I think I did what was becoming a Christian gentleman.
