PILLAR of LIGHT CHART Kit I night long lb.- great bell of IA I I'glilboii-e slung I" a stent beam proj.'i-ling seaward I 1 l iieath the outer platform, had tolled its warning through the fog. The monotonous ticking of the clock work attachment that governed it. the sharp ami livelier click of the occult ing hood's machinery, were the only sounds which alternated with its deep boom. The tremendous clang sent a thrill through the giant column itself end pealed away into the murky void with a tremolo of profound diminu tions. overhead the magnificent lantern, its eight ringed circle of flame burning at inil pressure, illumined the drifting vapor with an intensity that seemed to l»> horn of the sturdy granite pillar of v.hich It was the lilting diadem. Hard and strong externally as tho everlast ing rock on which It stood, replete within with burnished steel and polish ad br;i<.s, great cylinders and powerful pumps, the lighthouse thrust Its glow ing torch beyond the reach of the most daring wave. Cold, dour, defiant It looked. Yet Its superhuman eye bought to pierce the very heart of the fog, and the furuaee white glare, con centrated ten thousand fold by the en circling hive of the dioptric lens, flung fur Into the gloom a silvery cloak of lnooullke mujesty. At last uu Irresistible ally sprang to the assistance of the unconquerable light. Abotft the close of the middle Watch a gentle breeze from the Atlan tic followed the tide and swept tho tlilvering wraith landward to the north east, while the first beams of a June euu completed the destruction of the routed specter. So ouco more, as on the dawn of the third day, the waters under the heaven were gathered into one placo and the dry land appeared, and, behold, it was good. On the horizon tho turquoise rim of the sou lay with tho sheen of folded fillk against the softer canopy of the sky. Toward tho west a group of Is lands, to which drifting banks of mist clung In melting despair, were etched lu shadows of dreamy purple. Over the nearer sea floor the quickly dying vapor spread a hazy pall of opul tints. 'Across the face of the waters glisten ing bands of emerald green and serene blue quivered In fairy lights. Tho slanting rays of the sun threw broad cast a golden mirage and glided all things with the dumb gladness of an English summer's day. A man, pacing the narrow gallery be neath the lantern, halted for a mo ment to flood his soul afresh with a beauty made entrancing by the knowl edge that a few brief minutes would resolve It Into maturer and more fa miliar charms. He was engaged. It Is true. !u the unromnntlc action of filling his pipe, a simple thing, beloved alike of poets and navvies, yet his eyes drank In the mute glory of the scene, and, captive to the spell of the hour, be murmured aloud: "Floating on waves of music and of light. Behold the chariot of the fairy queen! Celestlul coursers paw the unyielding air; Their filmy pennons at her word they furl And stop obedient to the reins of light." The small door beneath the glass fane was open. The worker within, busily cleaning an eight Inch burner, ceased for an Instant and popped his head out. "Did you hall me?" he Inquired. , The matter of fact words awoke the dreamer. lie turned with a pleasant smile. "To bo exact, Jim, I did ball some body, but It was Aurora, Spirit of the Dawn, not a bard bitten sallorman like you." "Oh, that's all right, cap'n! I thought I heard you singlu' out for a light." The other man bent his bend to shield a match from a puff of wind, thus con cealing from bis companion the gleam of amusement In his eyes. Ills mate sniffed the fragrant odor of the tobacco longingly, but the Elder Brethren of the Trinity maintain strict discipline, and he vanished to his task without a thought of broken rules. 1 He left a piece of good advice be hind him. "If I was you, cap'n," he said, "I'd turn In. Jones Is feelln' A 1 this morn ln'. He comes on at 8. You ought to be dead heat after your double spell of the last two days. I'll keep break fast back until three bells (9:30 a. m ), cn' there's fresh eggs an' haddick." "Just a couple of whiffs, Jim. Then I'll go below." Both men wore the uniform of assist ant keepers, yet It needed not their manner of speech to reveal that one was a gentleman born and bred and the other a bluff, good natured, horny banded A. 8., to whom new laid eggs and recently cured fish appealed far More potently than Shelley and a sum mer dawn at sea. He who had Involuntarily quoted "Queen Mab" turned his gaze seaward again. Each moment tho scene was be coming more brilliant, yet nearer to earth. The faroff Islands sent splashes Of gray, brown and green through the purple. The rose flush on the horizon was assuming a yellower tinge, and the blue of sky and water was deepening. [Twenty miles away to tho southwest the smoke of a steamer heralded the advent of an Atlantic liner, and the last ebreds of white mist were curling for lornly above the waves. The presence of the steamship, a tiny dull spot on the glowing picture, peo pled the void with life and banished poetry with the thinly sheeted ghosts of tho fog. In a little more than an hour she would be abreast of the Gulf Rock light. The watcher believed—was almost certain, in fact—that she was the rrincess Royal, homeward bound from New York to Southampton. From her saloon deck those enthusiasts who had risen early enough to catch a first glimpse of the English coast were al ready scanning the trimly rugged out lines of the Scllly Isles and searching with their glasses for the Land's End and the Lizard. In a few hours they would be iu Southampton; that afternoon In I.on don— London, the Mecca of the world, from which two ye*.rs ago he fled with a loathing akin to terror. The big ship ont there, panting and straining as if she were beginning, not ending, her ocean race of 3,000 miles, was carrying eager hundreds to the pleasures and follies of the great city. Yet he, the man smoking anil silently staring at the growing bank of smoke—a young mun, too; handsome, erect, with tho ... By ... Louis Tracy, Author of "The Wings of the Morning" Copyright. 190-1. by LUward J. CloJc civ.in, smooth profile of the aristocrat - had turned his back oil it ali and sought and found pence tare in the gaunt pillar on a lonely rock. Strange how differently men arc con stituted. And women! Bah! A hard look came Into his eyes. His mouth set In a stern contempt. For a little while his face bore a steely expression which would have amazed the uuiu wltliili the lantern, iuw singing lustily as he worked. But. as the harp of David caused the evil spirit t > depart l'roni Saul, so did the music of the morning chase away the lurking devil of memory which sprang upon the lighthouse keeper with the sight ol' the vessel. lie smiled again, a trifle bitterly per haps. Behind him the singer roared genially: "Soon we'll be in I.ondon Town, bins, my huls. yeo ho-o! And sco tho king In his golden crown, Sing, my lads, yeo hoi" The man on the platform seemed to be aroused from u painful reverie by the Jingle so curiously apropos to his thoughts. He tapped his pipe on the Iron railing and was aliout to enter the luuterti—and so to the region of sleep beneath—when suddenly his glance, trained to an ncuteness not dreamed of by folk ashore, rested on some object seemingly distant a mile or less and drifting slowly nearer with the tide. At this hour a two knot current swept to tho east around and over the treacherous reef whose sunken fangs were marked by the Ughthouße. In calm weather, such as prevailed Just then, It was difficult enough to effect a landing ut the base of the rock, but this same smiling water race became an awful, raging, tearing fury when the waves were lashed Into a storm. He pocketed his pipe and stood with hands clinched on the rail, gazing In tently at a white painted ship's life boat, with a broken mast and a sail trailing over tho stem. Its color, with the sun shining on It, no less than tho vaporous eddies fading down to the aurfuce of the sea, had prevented him from seeing It earlier. Perhaps he would not have noticed It at all were It not for tho flashing wings of several aea birds which accompanied the craft In aerial escort. Even yet a landsman would have stared Insolently In that direction and declared that there was naught else In sight save the steamer, whose tall masts and two black funnels were now distinctly visible, bat the lighthouse keeper knew he was not mistaken. Here was a boat adrift, forlorn, de serted. Its contour told blm that It was no local craft straying adven turously from Island or mainland. Its unexpected presence, wafted thus strangely from ocean wilds, the broken spar and tumbled canvas, betokened an accident, perchance a tragedy. "Jim!" he cried. nis mate, engaged in shrouding tho gleaming lenses from the sun's rays, came at tho call. He was lame, the result of a wound received In the Egyptian campaign; nevertheless, he teas quick on his feet. "What do you make of that?" The sailor required no more than a gesture. He shaded his eyes with his right hand, a mere shipboard trick of concentrating vision and brain, for the rising sun was almost behind him. "Ship's boat," ho answered laconical ly. "Collision, I expect. There's bin no blow to speak of for days. But they're gone. Knocked overboard when she was took aback by a squall. Un less them birds"— no spoke In a species of verbal short hand, but his meaning was clear •bough, even to the sentence left un finished. The craft was under no con trol. She would drift steadily Into the bay until tho tide turned, wander In an aimless circle for half an hour thereafter, and then, when the ebb re stored direction and force to the cur rent, voyage forth again to the fabled realm of Lyonnessc. For a little while they stood together la Bllence. Jim suddenly qnttted his companion and came back with a gtos& He poised it with the precision of a Blsley marksman and began to speak again jerkily: "Stove In forrard, above the water line. Wouldn't live two minutes In a aea. Somethln' lyln' In the bows. Can't make It out. And there's a couple of cormorants perched on the gunwale. But she'll puss within 200 yards on her present course, an' tho tlde'll hold long enough for that." The other man looked around. From that elevated perch, 130 feet above high water mark, he could survey a vast area of sea. Excepting the ap proaching steamer—which would flit past a mile away to the south—and a few distant brown specks which be tokened a shoal of Penzance fishing Smacks making the best of the tide eastward—there was not a sail in ■lght. "I think we Bbould try to get bold Of her," he said. Jim kept his eye glued to the tele- Mope. "'Tain't worth It, cap'n. The sal vage 'll only be a pound or two, not but what on extiy suvrln comes In "ir/iot do you make of thatT" useful, an' we might tie her up to the buoy on the off chance until the relief comes or we signal a smack. But What's the good o' talkiu'? We've got no boat, an' uohody'd be such a fool as to swim to her." J'Tbflt Is What I had In inlud." J!in lowonnl the gins*. "That's tin* fust tlnio I've over hoard you say suoh a silly thins. Stephen Brand." There was no wavering judgment in bis voice now He was angry and slightly alarmed. "Why Is it so emphatically silly. Jim?" was the smiling query. "How d'ye know what's aboard of her? What's them fowl after? What's under that sail? What's that iytn crumpled tip forrard ? Head men, niehbe. If they are, she's convoyed by sharks." "Sharks! This It not the Bed sen. I am not afraid of any odd prowler. Once— Anyhow, 1 am going to ask Jones." "Jones won't hear of it." "That Is precisely what he will do, within the next minute. Now, don't j he vexed, Jim. Stand by and sing out . directions if needful when I am In the water. Have no fear. lam more than equal to l.eander In a sea like this." Jim. who trusted to the head keep er's veto -awed, too, by the reference to l.eander, whom he hazily associated with Captain Webb-made no rejoinder. | He focused the telescope again, gave a moment's scrutiny to the steamer and then re-examined the boat. The stillness of the morning was solemn, j j Beyond the lazy splash of the sea | against the Gulf ltock Itself and uu oc cuslouul heavy surge as the swell re | vealed nud instantly smothered some ! dark tooth of the reef he heard no sound snve the ring of Stephen Brand's boots on the Iron stairs as he descend ed through the oil room, the library and office to the first bedroom. In the low er bunk of which lay Mr. Jones, keeper I and chief, recovering from a slinrp at j tack of sciatica. j During one fearful night In the : March equinox, when the fierce heat of the lamp within and the Icy blast of the gale without had temporarily de i ranged the occulting machinery, Jones | experienced an anxious watch. Not for an Instant could he forego attendance on the lamp. Owing to the sleet It wus neeessnry to keep the light at full pres sure. The surplus oil, driven up from the tanks by weights weighing half a ton, must flow copiously over the brass shaft of the burner or the metal might yield to the fervent power of the col umn of flame. The occulting hood, too, must be help ed when the warning click catne or It would jam and fall to fall periodically, thus changing the character of the light, to the bewilderment and grave peril of nny unhnppy vessel striving Bgalnst the exterior turmoil of wind nad wave. So Jones passed four hotirs with his head and shoulders in the temperature at a Turkish bath and the lower part at his body chilled to the hone. He thought nothing of It at the time. This was duty. But at Intervals throughout the rest of his life the sci atic nerve would remind him of that 1 lonely watch. This morning he was Convalescent after a painful Immobility 9f two days. Watching the boat, Jim centered her In the telescopic field and looked anx iously for n sharp arrow shaped ripple on the surface of the sen. The breeze which had vanquished the fog now kissed the smiling water into dimples, and his keen sight was perplexed by the myriad wavelets. Each minute the condition of affairs on board became more defined. Be neath some oars ranged along the star board side he could see several tins, ■ucli as contain biscuits and compress ed beef. The shapeless mass in the bowa puzzled him. It was partly cov ered with broken planks from the dam aged portion of the upper works, and It might he a Jib sail fallen there when the mast broke. The birds were busy and excited. He did not like that. Nearly half an hour passed. The Princess Koyal, n fine vessel of yacht like proportions, sprinting for the aft ernoon train, was about eight miles away, sou'west by west. According to present Indications, steamer and dere lict would be abreast of the Gulf Rock light simultaneously, but the big ship, at course, would give a wide berth to a rock strewn shoal. At last the lighthouse keeper heard ascending footsteps. This was not Stephen Brand, but Jones. Jim, whose rare Irritated moods found safety in atolid silence, neither spoke nor looked around when his chief joined him, bin oculars In band. Joues, a man of whitewash, polish and rigid adherence to framed rules, found the boat Instantly and recapitu lated Jim's Inventory, eliciting grunts of agreement a 9 each Item was ticked off. A clang of metal beneath caught their ears—tho opening of the stout doors, forty feet above high water mark, from which a series of Iron rungs sunk In the granite wall led to the rocky base. "Brand's goln' to swim out. It's hardly worth while slgnalln' to the Land's End," commented Jones. No answer. Jim leaned well over and saw their associate, stripped to his underclothing, with a leather belt supporting a sheath knife slung across bis shoulders, climbing down the lad der. This taciturnity surprised Jones, for Jim was the cheeriest nurse who ever brought a sufferer a plate of soup. "It's nothing for a good swimmer. Is i It?" was the anxious question. "No. It's no distance to speak of." "An' the sea's like a mill pond?" "Aye, It's smooth enough." "Don't you think he ought to try It? Every fine mornln' he has a dip off the rock." "Well, if it's all right for him an' you it's all right for me." Jim had urged his plea to the man whom it chiefly concerned. He was far too sporting a character to obtain the interference of authority, and Jones, whose maritime experiences were confined to the hauling In or pny- Ing out of a lightship's cable, had not the slightest suspicion of lurking dan ger In the blue depths. A light splash came to them, and, a | few seconds later, Brand's head and shoulders swung Into view. After a dozen vigorous breast strokes he rolled over on to his side and waved his left hand to the two men high above him. | With a sweeping side stroke he made rapid progress. Jones, unincumbered , by knowledge, blew through his lips, i "He's a wonderful chnp. Is Brand," he said contentedly. "It licks me I what a man like him wants messln' about In the service for. He's eddi cated up to the top notch, nn' he has money too. Ills lodglu's cost the wholo of his pay, the missus says, an' that kid of his hns a hospital nuss, If you pleuse." j Jones was grateful to his mates for their recent attentions, lie was In clined to genial gossip, but Jim was watching the boat curving toward the lighthouse. The high spring tide was at the full. So he only growled: "You can see with hnlf nn eye he has taken on this Job for a change. I wish he was In that blessed boat." Jones was quite certain now that his subordinate harbored some secret fear I of danger. ! "What's up?" he cried. "He'll board 1 her In two ticks " ! On no account would the sailor men tion sharks. Hp might tie mistaken, anil Join's would guffaw at his "dorp sea" fancies. Anyhow, It was Brand's affair. A friend might advise; he would never tattle. The head keeper, vaguely excited, peered through his glass. Both hoat and swimmer were In the annular field. Brand had resumed the breast stroke. The swing of the tide carried the broken how toward him. lie was not more than the boat's length distant when he dived suddenly and the cor morants Happed aloft. A black tin darted Into sight, leaving a sharply di vided trail in the smooth patch of water created by the turning of the derelict. Jones was genuinely startled now. "My God!" he cried. "What Is it?" "A shark!" yelled Jim. "I knew It I warned him. Kh, but he's game, Is the cap'n." "Why didn't you tell me?" roared Jones. Vndor reversed conditions ho would have behaved exactly as Jim did. But It was no time for words. The men peered at the sudden tragedy with an intensity which left them gasping for breath. More than Utxj yards away in reality, the magnifying glasses ! brought tills horror so close that tliey lotild see— they almost thought they could hear—lts tensely dramatic ac tion. The rapidly moving black signal ! reached the small eddy caused by the : man's disappearance. Instantly a great ! sinuous, shining body rose half out of i the water and a powerful tall struck i tho side of the boat a resounding whack. Jim's first expletive died In his throat. "He's done it!" Jones heard liiin say. "He's ripped hint. Hh, bully! May the Lord grant there's only one." For a single Instant they saw the dark linlr anil face of the titan above the surface. The shark whirled about and rushed. Brand sank, and again the giant man cater writhed In ngonlzisl contortions and the sea showed masses of froth anil dark blotches. The tlut terlngs of the birds became Irregular and alarmed. Their wheeling tllghts partly obscured events below. The gulls, screeching their fright, or It might he Interest, kept close to the water, and the cormorants sailed in cir cles aloof. Jones was pallid and streaming with perspiration. "I wouldu't have laid It happen for fifty quid," he groaned. "I wouldn't lia' missed It for a hun dred," yelped Jim. "It's a light to u finish, mid the cup'n 'll win. There ain't another sea lawyer on the Job, an' Brand knows how to handle this one." Their mute's head reappeared, and Jim relieved tho tension by a mighty shout: "He'll swim wild now, Brand. Keep out of ids track." Sure enough, the ugly monster began to tiirasii tiie water and cnreer around on the surface in frantic convulsions. Tiie second stab of the knife had readi ed a vital part Brand, who periiaps hnd seen n Malay diver handling his lifelong enemy, coolly struck out to ward the stern of the lioat. The shark, churning the sea Into a white foatn, whirled ttwuy In blind pursuit of the death which was rending him. The man, unharmed hut somewhat breath less, clambered over the folds of the sail tiito the boat. "Glory be!" quavered Jones, who was n Baptist. Jim was about to chant his thanks In other terms when his attention was caught by Brand's curious actions. In stepping across the after thwart he stoppetl as though something had stung him. Ills hesitation was mo mentary. Pressing his left hand to mouth and nose, he pass<>d rapidly for ward. stooped, caught a limp Issly hy the holt which every sailor wears and. with n mighty effort, siting It into the sea, where it stink Instantly. So the shark, like many a human congener of higher Intellect, had only missed his opportunity hy hclng too precipitate, while the cormorants and gulls, eying him ominously, did not know what they had lost. Then the man returned to the sail and peered heneath. Neither of the on lookers could distinguish anything of Vpeoinl Interest under the heavy can vas sheet. Whatever it was. Brand apparently resolved to leave it alone for I lie moment. [to iik continued.] CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought P. J. O'BRIEN & CO.
