When Christian and Mona turned away from tbe honm In thequarry, with Ita dead man and solitary watcher, they thought Ihey descried aall far out In the black void beyond the line of wild sea that was lit tip by the burning gone. "Let's hope they're not In! the down stream, poor fellows, whoever they are, " aid Christian. "In a wind like this It would be certain to drive them dead on to the Moor reef." Then they continued their walk and passed the open shaft In which Christian hnd spent tils night of peril and opnny Thero was so much to say that neither spoke except at long intervals. There was so much else to feel that neither felt weary, nor remcmlercd the many hours In which both hnd been strangers to sleep. They might have wandered on two dark figures agnlnst the ml glow of the great firo un til the steep declivities of the Poolvash hnd stopped them, but that the wind irae high er every moment and threatened to sweep them from their feet. "Listen, how the sea thunders!" said Christirth, and just then a cloud of hissing spray came up to thera, high as they were, from the boiling surge below. They turned bock, laughing as every gust tore them a little npnrt. Before they passed the cottage on their return they were conscious of faint cries from beneath. "Hark I" said Mono. "Suroly they were voices from the sea." There could be no doubt of It now Several voices were calling in dcecnts of fearful ngony, and above the r?.t was one wild, thin shriek. It seemed to echo in the lowering dome of the empty sky ,wns such a cry of distress as might haunt one's dreams for years. "It's from the boat we saw, and they're on the Moar reof, too, surely," said Chris tian. Then they hastoned on. Whon they reached the shore they found the sea running high. A long ground swell was breaking In the narrow strait be tween the mainland and the Castle Isle. Flakes of sen foam were flying around them. The waves were scooping up the shingle and flinging It through the air like sleet. The cries were louder here than above. By the light of Danny's fire It was but too cosy to see whence they came .lammed between two huge protruding horns nf rock a fishing boat was laboring hard In tho heavy sea, rearing, with a creak, on the great waves and plunging down with a crash and groan on the sharp tenth of the shoal beneath her. The men on deck could bo seen hacking at the mast to lighten her and cutting away the gunwale forward to ease her off the horns that held her like a vise. But every fresh wave behind drove her hood deeper into the cleft. The men shouted In mingled rage and fear. They tried to leap on to the rocks, but the weight of the seas breaking on them made this a perilous ad venture, even if the pitching of the boat left It possible. Christian took In the situation In an In stant. Two or three small boats wern ly ing high and dry on tho shore. He ran to them, cut away their cables, tied them to gether in strong knots, slung one end around his waist and passed the other about an old spar that lay close by. " They 're too near for us to stand and see them die, " he shouted excitedly, above the tumult of the wind. Mona clung to him for an Instant. Then she loosed him, with a fervent kiss. In another moment he had plunged into the water. The strait was very narrow 60 feet at most from the shore to the rocks. Yet what a toilsome journey to the man who was wading off with the rope. The tide was flowing and near the top. It never rose higher than four or five feet in this channel. A man might cross It if the swell did not sweep' him back. Through tho boiling surf, piercingly cold, Christian struggled bravely. He was young and strong. He reached the boat nt last. It was prancing like an unbroken horse. But, waiting for a receding wave, he rushed in, laid firm hold of the first mnn at hand nnd carried him bock to the shore. The man had lain in his arms a dead weight. Was he dead Indeed? Mona stooped nnd looked into his face 'It is Danny Kale!" she cried. But Danny was not dead. He recovered consciousness and staggered to his feet. Loud and angry cries were now coining from the boat. Mingleirwith the curses of rage there came tho words, "Why didn't you give tas the rope?" Christian shouted that he was coming bock with it. Then, watching again for an ebbing wave, ho plunged off afresh. Ho reached the boat quicker this time. Being pulled aboard, he unlashed the rope and strapped it to tho capstan. Then one of tho men It was old Quilleash dropped over the side and drew himself hand over band through the water. But tho rope stretched and creaked with tho rolling of the boat. Tho spar to which the end ashore was strapped budged not an inch. Mcna saw the danger too late Before she could ease the rope it snapped. Now Christian added one more to the number of those on the boat I Old Billy, safe on shore sat down on the shing'o and sobbed, terror stricken and holpless. Thank God, tho poor, despised Danny had his wits about him. He saw what had happened nnd rou for another rope. Flying into the town, he shouted, "Help, helpl" But nil Peel seemed to be at the "corvnls." Ho ran to the church. Screams of laughter and the tumult of noisy singing caino out into the.darkness. Scarce knowing what he did, he burst open the door mid cried, in a piercing voice, "The 15en-my-chree is on the rocks !" Then, with the new rope in his hands, ho (lod away to the shore. Whon Danny got back, a great multi tude was at his heels. Old Quilleash still sat, wailing and helpless. Mona ran up and down the shore in an agony of sus pense. Tho lad looked at neither. The hillside of Are behind them showed but too clearly what had occurred. Chilled to the bone by the raw winter wind, four of tho mon had dropped overboard. A fifth had leaped into the wator and after a fear ful struggle for life had been lifted off his foot by tho breakers and broken on the rocks. He was seen no nidro. Only two remain ed on the dock, and one of tho two was Christian. Ho could be seen clinging to the bowsprit, which was shipped. The dingy had been torn from tho lugger and thrown by the rising title high aud dry on the shinglo. Danny pushed it to the wa ter's edge, jumped in, strapped one end of tho new rope about his body, threw the ot her to a group of mon on the shore and looked around for assistance. None stepped out. Many fell back. "Ifcla no use throwing more Uvea away, " muttered one. " They're past saving," said another. Women cluugtA t.helr husbands and would not let them stir. Other women, the wives of men who hod been on the boat, cried "Hnbjl" Little children, orouohlng to- Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorta. getner wlta tear ana eota, wept prteotuty. Danny pushed off bis boat, but in an in stant It was lifted on to the top of a snow tapped billow and pitched ashore. Danny himself was thrown out on the shingle. "No use, man," shouted many voices, and tbe lad was compelled to desist. The wind clamored loader every min ute. Timbers cut away from tbe Ashing boat were swept up with every wave. The surf around the rocks was like snow. The water was beaten Into seething foam around the boat also. Between the bil lows the long swell was red with the re flection of the fire, but the sea was black aa Ink beyond the line of the Castle Isle, save where, at the farthest end of wave and sky, a streak of ashen light shone In the darkness. Danny had colled tbe rope from end to end around his waist. Then he stood and waited. He knew that the tide must soon turn. He knew, too, that, having once be gun to ebb, It would flow out at this point as fast as a horse might gallop. But low water never left those rocks dry between which the fishing boat was jammed. The men aboard of her would still need succor. But help might then come to them from the castle side of the channel. The crowd knew his purpose and laugh ed at It. One grizzled old fisherman took Danny by the arm and would have hold him. But at the first glimpse of the reef that ran across the highest and narrowest point of the strait the lad shook himself free and bounded across to the Castle isle. "Brave Dunny," said Mona In a deep whisper. "Bravef Is It braver Aw, well. It's mad I'm calling It," said the old salt. There Is a steep pathway under the east wall of the castle. It runs up from the shore to a great height above the water. It Is narrow onough to be colled a ledge, and the rocks beneath It fall well nigh precipitously. Danny ran along this path until he camt to the square turret whose truncated shaft stands on the southeast corner of the castle. While he was under the shelter of the walls the wind did not touch him, but when he reached the east angle a fierce gust from the west threaten ed to lling him over Into the sea. He tried to round the corner and could not. The wind filled his jersey like a sail. He took the jorsoy off and threw It aside. Then on hnnds and knees he crawled round Inch by Inch, clinging to the stones of the turret and the fow tussocks of long grass that grew between them. Kvery movement he made could be watched from the opposite side of the channel. The light of the gorse fired over the Poolvash fell full upon him and lit up the entire castle and rocks and tho shuddoring boat beneath with an eerie brilliance. The townspeople were congre gated In thousands on the Horse hill and the shore of the mainland. "Who's yon der madman?" cried one "Danny Fayle," answered another. "No, not Danny, the gawkf" "Aw, yes, though, Danny, the gawk." Kerruish Klnvtg was there strid ing up and down and shouting like thun der itself above the tumult of the wind: "Clear the road. Stand back, the ruck of you." There was nothing else that Kin vlg could do. Mylrea Ballodhoo had been sent for. He came and sat down on the spar to which Christian had strapped the rope. The broken piece still hung to It. Mona stood beside him and spoke to him at intervals. He answered nothing, but stared vacantly before him. The people held their breath as Danny rounded the turret, expecting every inst:i..t to see him lifted from the ledge and hur.r.l Into the surf beneath. When he had clean ed the corner and stood full In the wind on tbe south side of the castle directly above the two protruding rocks that held the fishing boat In their grip, the crowds rushed down the shore and along the top of the Contrary head to keep him In view. What other mud act would the bid attempti "He'll go round to the west and come back on the shingle." "Not him, man. The shore there Is In six feet of water." Danny emerged presently. He was seen to tie one end of his rope through a hole In the old castle wall to a huge stone built into It. The other end was still about his waist. "He's going down tbe rocks to the boat." "Gerr out of that. He'd be cut in pieces." "Aw, dear, the poor boy's not mad enough for that anyway." But Danny was going down the rocks. Sharp as needles, with their thousand teeth turned upward, slippery and icy cold, Danny set his foot on them. He be gan his descent with his back to the sea. Clouds of spray rose from every third wave and hid" him from the people. But he was seen to be going down foot after foot. What had seemed like madness be fore began to look like courage now that success appeared possible. It was neither it was despair. "Aw, beautiful!" "Beautiful, extraordinary I" "It's the young Masthor Christian he's going down for." "Well, well, the masther was kind to the boy astonishing. " " Poor lad, there's a heart at him." Meanwhile Christian was clinging to the bowsprit. Ho was chilled near to losing his hold. He saw Danny with the rope and wondered if he would ever reach them. His companion some said it was the mate, Davy Cain saw him also, and the poor fellow was so transported by the prospect of deliverance that he died on the kistunt and was swept awaj. Only Chris tian now remained. Kvery moment tho waves washed over him. He was numbed past feeling. His hands were swelled to twice their size. Wondering if when Dan ny reached hini with the rope he would have strength enough to grip It, be lost consciousness. When within a yard of the bow of the boat, Danny leaped and lauded on the deck. The peoplo had held their breath while he descended. Now a great cheer went up otfHlio shore and on the cliff. It rang out above the clamorof the wind and the hiss of the thrashing billows. But Danny heard it not. His thoughts were of Mona and of how she was blessing him in her heart As surely as if he heard it with his carnal ear, Dunny knew that even at that moment Mona was praying that strength might bo grunted him and that he might be blessed iu the mercy of God forever. Ho lifted Christian in his arms. The swelled hands hud next to no hold now. Then tho lad set his face afresh to the cruel, block, steep rocks. Ouoe again a shower of spray hid him from the people. When the white cloud had fallen buck, he could be seen hulf way up the rock, drag ging Christian on oue arm after him. Could none help hlmf Yes. Twenty hands set out at this moment, nine-tenths ot the peril post The tide had left a wide bank across the highest part of the strait, nnd the water was running out on both sides Danny was heljHHl up. but he would not relinquish his burden Walking feebly, bo carried Christian, who was still Ireof isiblo, aiong tlu i: srrow path under the east wall back to ihe shore The crowd divided for him lie saw Mono, whore she stood with clu-sped hands, beside Bal lodhoo. Making his way to her, he laid Christian at her feet. Danny's life work was done. He had given bock to the woman who was all the world to him tho man sho loved. Mona dropped to her knees beside Chris tian and kissed him tenderly. Danny stood apart in silence, and amid all that throng saw Mona alone. Then he turned his head aside and looked away over the sea. Only heaven knew what his thoughts were In that bitter hour that blessed hour that hour of sorrow and of olnrr. In this Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla. world bis days were done.' tat KlsseelTi death, what remained to him among meaf Without Mona's love, what was left to him on earth f Christian returned to consciousness. Mona rose up and took Danny's hand. She would have put her arms aroand his neck, but be drew away and turned his eyes again toward the sea. The longing look came bock, but no tear would start, for tbe gift of tears had gone forever. The hum of human voices arose above them. "Poor lad, and his unclo dead too." "Kiseeckf" "Aw, yes. Kissock." ;'Nor 'Yes, though, and shot, they're any In." Never." "Who shot hlmf" "There's no one k no win that." A loud, unearthly peal of laughter was heard above the noise of the people and the tumult of the storm. Every one turned -jo look for Danny. He had gone. The next moment he was seen at the water's edge, pushing off the dingy of the lugger. He leaped Into It and picked up an oar. But the ebbing tide needed no such help. It caught the boat and carried It away on a huge billow, white with foam. In a min ute It was riding far out into the dark void beyond. Then Mona remembered Danny's strange words two days ago, "I think at whiles I'd like to die in a big sea like that." Next day Christmas day when the bleared sun was sinking over the western bar of the deep lone sea and Danny's gorse fire on the cliff head was smoldering out, a boat was washed ashore In the Poolvash empty, capsized. It was the dingy of the Ben-my-chree. CHAPTER XXIH. One scene more. It was the morning of a summer's day. The sunshine danced bewitchlngly over the sea, that lay drowsily under the wide vault of a blue sky. Lambent, languid, white, earth and air slept together. A soothing and dreamy haze rested on the little town of Peel. Brighter than the sunshine, fresher than the salt breath of the sea, a little girl of 8 tripped over the paved and crabbed streets. In one hand she swung a straw hat, over flowing with flowers. By the other she held a fair haired boy, who was just old enough to trot along at her side. The stout little man carried a mighty spade across one shoulder, and the hand that held the hand of his sister held also a buck et heavily laden with perhaps a teaspoon ful of sand. At one moment the maiden, exercising the grave duties of a guardian, stopped and volunteered to relieve the lit tle chap of this burden ; but, of course, he resented the humiliating tender with prop er masculine dignity. Then they tripped on. They were making for the market place, and when they reached It they turned In at the church gates. Many a green grave lay there, bathed in the sunbeams, and many a simple stone, moss grown and dis colored, looked brighter on this brilliant day. An old man sat on a tomb and lean ed forward on a stick. He seemed to doze in the light and warmth, but as the little people passed him he fumbled at his hat and smiled through his teethless gums. " 'At's Billy," said the little fellow, with an air of knowledge. The children walked to the southwest angle of the church and stopped before a white marble slab imbedded In the wall There was no grave beneath it. Tossed on the shimmering waters that stretched away miles on miles In front of It, or rest ing calmly In that ocean bed, was all that remained of him to whom this stone was raised. - The little maiden cast her flowers in front of it. The little boy, too, must needs cast his flowers also. Then he look ed up with his great bluo wondering eyes at the letters of the inscription. They ran, "To Dear Danny In Heaven." The tide was just on the turn, and the murmur of the first receding waves began to break tho silence. "Listen," said the little woman, with lifted finger. "I 'ikes the sea," said the boy. The .children turned to go. "Come, Danny," said she. "Ees, Ruby," he lisped. When they reached the gate the little feet tripped faster over the stones, and a silvery voice sang: "Sweet violets and primroses the sweetest. " THE END. Pant Jones and the French Kins;. His wound and the hardships he had undergone kept him closely confined at L'Orient for some time, but. In May he went to Paris and found himself the hero of the hour. The American commission ers paid him every honor. The court and the public vied with each other in compli menting him. Boron de Grimm, in his letters, speaks of Paul Jones' popularity at court. Ho sat in the queen's box at the opera, and on his first appearance at the theater the audience rose and cheered him. At the end of the performance a laurel wreath was suspended from the coiling di rectly over his head. He rose quietly and moved away an Instance of modesty which is to this day held up as a model to French schoolboys. The king gave him a superb gold hilted sword inscribed: "Vindicator maris. Lu dovicus XVL Remunerator strenuo vindi ci." Paul Jones mentions that it was much handsomer than the one presented to Lafayette. It cost about $2, 400. Louis also directed M. do Luzerne, the French embassador to the United States, to obtain the consent of congress for Paul Jones to accept the grand crossof the Order of Mili tary Merit, never before awarded a for eigner, which was done. From "Paul Jones," by Molly Elliot SeaweU, In Cen tury. An Extra Part. He had been listening to the singing of a song by tho choir, and he didn't like the selection so well that he spoke to the leader about it in a cautious manner. "You see," explained the loader, "that Is a four part song." "Four part?" htf asked "Yes soprano, alto, bass and tenor." "I should say it was a five purt. " "Five part?" and It was the leader's turn to be surprised. "Yes," explained the objector, "the four parts you mention and tbe bud port you don't seem to catch on to." Detroit Free Press. Possibly Slay Use Them Hereafter. "So far as we hove been able to learn," said the secret agent of the police, "the facts pertaining to tho murder are that" "I am not ready for any facts yet," in terrupted the eminent detective, wrinkling his brow in deep thought. "I am con structing a theory." Chicago Tribune. On the Comprehending- of Henry James. But Mr. Henry James has a ground glass style. By close application you can just discern through it men and women as trees walking. Nevertheless, they are liv ing men and women. You want to get close to him, to look Into bis face; you want to say to him, "Mr. Caliph, I be lieve?" and you never get thachance. The peculiar exasperation of Mr. James' style is not so much the avoidance of the obvi ous word as of the obvious construction. He has a positive distaste for the simple sentence, and be cannot avoid tangling his dependent clauses. His paragraphs re mind one of a skein ot wool after a kitten has played with It.

Hurry up!" exclaimed Mr. Wiagleswurth, bustling into tbe bouse with such precipitation that the hired girl closed the refrigerator door, shutting hr own band In it and standing for soite mo ments screaming. Why. what Is It?" fluttered M Wig gloswnrth, running down from her room. "What Is it?" echoed ber husband. "What ye s'poso it la when a man gets a day off? It's a picnic, that's what it is, and ye want to be lively about It If ye'fe going with me." Mr. WlgglcMworth proceeded to Induce himself into new light flavnel suit that be bad had made especially for vacation purposes. "That's the stuff," be said, complacent ly viewing the effect In a gloss. "What ye dolus:?" he called to his wife, who was running distractedly about with one hand clutching a pair of curling tongs that were fastened in her hair. "Oh, dear me'" returned Mrs. Wiggles worth. "I don't know what I shall do, with the lunch only half put up, and Mary cut her hand on a tin can, nnd I can't find my curling tongs anywhere." " Wl at ye want to do Is to come out of yer trance, advised Mr. Wlgglesworth as he pointed out tbe tongs. ' "I've got rver so many things, " Mrs. Wlgglesworth replied "some olives and some graham crackers and two lemons and all those tilings." "Any pio or cake?" her husband asked. "Well, you know," Mrs. Wlgglesworth explained, "wo had that last pie yester day, and Mary was going to bake a cake this afternoon" "Humph'" Mr. Wlgglesworth broke In. "Healthy dinner we'll hove off a raw lem on and threo or four green olives. Better take along a fow dried prunes, hadn't ye? Some roosted coffee wouldn't go bad or a few new potatoes, so long as they ain't cooked. Delmonico'll want ye Boon's he hears of ye." They got started finally, little Willie Wlgglesworth and his mother carrying the heavy basket between them, while Mr. Wlgglesworth bore an umbrella and a fan. It was a considerable walk to the spot near the beach, where 'some trees made down to tho shore and a bit of turf spread Its green surface Invitingly. "A-a-a-h-hl" sighed Mr. Wlgglesworth as he sank contentedly. "This is something like it." He paused to extract a large, dark ant that was trying to get down the neck of bis flannel shirt. Soon Mr. Wlgglesworth fell into a doze, while Mrs. Wlgglesworth spread forth the lunch and sent Willie to a house half a mile distant for a pall of water, a proceed ing which filled that young man with bit ter resentment. "I call this fun," she chirped as later they sat about and ate their hard boiled eggs and other delicacies. "It Is really quite romantic, don't you think, Ellery?" "What baker d'ye get tills bread from?" Mr. Wlgglesworth returned. "Never saw so many holes In a loaf of bread in my life. Must have used up his whole supply. " Mr. Wlgglesworth laughed aloud at this unexpected witticism and so did Mrs. Wlg glesworth after it was pointed out to her, and then Mr. Wlgglesworth sent Willie back home for a cigar. While the boy, with anger burning in his heart, was gone on this mission and Mrs. Wlgglesworth was clearing up the dishes Mr. Wlggles worth strolled down on the beach. "B' George," he cried, "if here ain't a boat!" "Don't touch it, Ellery," said his wife. "You know how dangerous it is to get Into a boat on a picnic people fall Into the water and get drowned." "Poh!" retorted Mr. Wlgglesworth. "Ye talk as if I was a boy. Don't ye s'pose I know how to manage a little flat bottom thing like this? 'F I didn't I'd go bag my head." Moved to reckless daring by the opposi tion of bis wife, Mr. Wlgglesworth unfas tened the boat, pushed it into the water and compelled Mrs. Wigglesworth with trembling protestations to step inside. "There!" he cried triumphantly as be adjusted the oars. "Don't see anything wrong about this, do ye? What's the mat ter with this for a picnic?" With such spirit of boasting Mr. Wlg glesworth splattered about digging theoar very deep in the water and poking them very high In the air while the boat wabbled painfully and Mrs. Wigglesworth repeated ly swallowed her lieart and gave vent to little scroamsw "What ye so scart about?" puffed Mr. Wiggleswortby bruising his knuckles on the oar. "Don't I tell ye the boat's stLffer than a farm wagon?" To demonstrate this and give his wife at ho same time another little scare Mr. Wigglesworth jumped playfully to one sido, and in a flash, they were In the water. A man fishing beyond Outer island said afterward that he heard Mrs. Wiggles worth's scream, while the roar that Mr: Wlgglesworth gave vent to caught the at tention of a hired man haying half svmile away. Mrs. Wigglesworth, buoyed by her skirts, boat the water frantically witln her hands, and so spun about rapidly, scream ing in six eight time, staccato movement, while her husband, thrashing the waves madly with his arms and legs, rolled! over and over and swallowed several quarts of brine. When his mouth was uppermost, he would yell, and then ho would go un der and load up with more water. Tho hired man arrived on the sceno, and Mrs. Wigglesworth saw him instantly. "Oh, help! Help!" she screamed. . , "Helpsh sliwash shwash helpsh !" bellowed Mr. Wigglesworth, and then ho went under. "Stand up!" cried the-hired man. "Helpshwash!" yelled Mr. Wiggles worth, rolling up again. "I'm drown tagsh!" "Stand up, you old fool!" roared the hired man. "The water ain't more'n. four feet deep. Stand up!'" Puffing and blowing; and leaking at ev ery pore, Mr. Wiggleswerth dragged him self to land. "The next time ye get me Into a boat," he hissed between his clinched teetb after the hired man was gone and they were wringing tbe water out of themselves, "I'll be as big a lunkhead as ye are. I never saw the woman yet that could go on picnic and see it through without mak ing a fool of herself, and ye sec if they don't have a piece in the paper about it." Willie arriving at that instant with the cigar, Mr. 'Wigglesworth caught that star tled youth a clip on tho side of the head that nearly unhinged bis medulla oblon aata. New York Recordor.
