Miss 1-ucv Tucker, tlie daughter
of a iiroimncnt farmer of Versailles,
Ind., was the victim of nervous
prostration. Most of the time she
was confined to bed, and was on
the verge of St. Vitus' dance. It
was a pitiful case which medical
science failed to conquer. Finally
a doctor prescribed Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People. Her
father said:
"We began giving the pills at
once, and the next day we could
see a change for the better in her.
We gave her one pill after each
meal until she was entirely well.
She has not been sick a day- since.

There she might remain, and, using us as
a targeft, sink us at her leisure, though I had
little fear of this action on her part, as tho
British policy was ever to capture any
thing that could be of use, only destroying
that which they could not carry away.
I watched the flight of the ball until the
spouts sent aloft as it struck the sea became
smaller and the missile sunk in the distance.
It was a command to come into the wind
and show our colors, and hoping (though
without reason) to defer to the last the fall
oi the bolt, I descended into the cabin and
fumbled through the flag locker for the
Union Jack. I had the ensign in my hand
when the girl looked up from her work and
luickly asked:
"Are you to make a last stand under
that? Nay, then, Donald," she said, with
an appeal in her voice, and for the first
time giving me my first name alone, "unlesB
you hope to blind them for good and all by
the sight of that bunting, 'twere a weak
tiling tc do. You say you will fight then
fight under your own colors. It will make
no differenoe in the end." And with this
she bent to the locker, picked up the en
sign of the colonies, and, holding it out,
dragged from my hand the red flag of the
enemy. It was a noble act, and worthy of
tbe spirit which had been* equal to bearding
Clinton in his own quarters. It put into me
the stimulus I needed. Without a word I
turned and bounded up the companion, and
in a moment the stars and stripes were
hanging at the main peak, barely unfolded
hy the zephyr that was still playing aloft.
It was a plain defiance, and met with a
ready answer. The bunting had been aloft
no longer than was necessary for those on
tbe distant vessel to have made it out with
a glass, when again came a spurt of smoke
and another bull leaped toward us. It was a
well-aimed shot, and, had the gun been
trained a trifle more to the right, it would
have ended matters on the instant. Ask
was, the ball dipped close to our stern and
beneath the trailing dingy. There was a
swirl of spouting foam, a tearing crash, and
the little boat leaped- into the air amid a
shower of splinters, spun over and over like
a top, and then settled, keel upward, with
a clean«cut hole yawning in her bottom.
I could almost hear the shout of triumph
that undoubtedly took place on the enemy's
deck as the result of this piece of marks
manship, but in the cud, had they but
known it, they were whetting the tiger's
teeth instead of pulling them. Hardly had
the smoke thinned from the shot, when
from under the cloud I marked a boat put
ting away. There was little need of a glass
to tell me it was filled with a boarding
ptrty, and that the drama was rapidly near
ing its close. With the few minutes left for
preparation we made haste to getwhat arms
we had on deck, and, while yet the yellow
flash of the oars was distant, our arrange
ments were completed. For defense we had
two rifles, four pistols, three cutlasses and
my rapier, though the latter and one of the
cutlasses, being of no use, were left in the
cabin. The lady was to take charge of the
ammunition and reload the firearms as
ubed, for, though her brother and myself
both begged and commanded her to remain
below, she had for'the first time drawn for
herself her own line of action by simply
shaking her head and following us to the
deck. She was white as chalk as she stood
ond watched the near approach of the boat,
but I will swear that her fear (if fear it was)
was not for herself.
Just before the enemy drew into rifle
shot I went forward and opened the fore
castle slide, calling both prisoners to corns
up, for I had a mind that I might use them
to make a show of numbers on our dock.
But to fetumj tjvgNrjf JHtiI*

1 had no time to try discipline,
I shut and again fastened the hatch, rejoin*
ing the qthers aft.
Even at this stage
1 was possessed with the
forlorn hope that we might drive off the ap*
proaching boat, and, if they were short*
handed aboard (a condition* not unlikely),
and failed to cripple us with their long gun,
something might happen in the way of wind
from another quarter or the coming dark
ness to enable us to escape. The hope, how
ever, was not enough to give life to my
spirits to make it worth the telling to my
companions. I had put my past behind me,
never hoping to reap what I had sowed, and
with set teeth awaited with little fear and
less doubt for the result of the coining hour.

AmeB lay along the deck with his rifle
over the counter the girl sat in the com
panion door ready to reload the arm as they
were passed to her and I, lookingifor the
proper moment to open fire, stood in plain
sight above the taffrail.
Slowly they came on until I could count
ten men and an officer, and as I marked the
easy range I ttold Ames to let them have it
The crack of his rifle was yet in my ears as
I saw the bowman pitch forward, his oar
dipping from his hand into the sea. There
was a slight commotion aboard, and the
boat's progress ceased but it was only to
recover the lost oar, and then on they came
again. Resting my gun over tho rail, I
calculated the roll of the schooner and in. my
turn fired. This shot told as well as the
first. A man in the waist sprang to his
feet, beat the air with his hands for an in
stant, and then toppled over the side, hang
ing half in and half out of water, as limp as
a bag of wet salt. At this there was more
delay, and by the time they wero again
well under way both rifles had been re
loaded, and as yet there had been no call
for the services of Miss King.
"Let them come nearer," said I, "and
then give them both barrels at once, and
after that the pistols." There was a grim
determination in the way their oars flashed
now, and as they came to within 900 feet
we both, by this time under the thelter of
the rail, fired on the count of three.
Through the smoke that drifted on. us
raw the officer sink back in his seat and the
rowing cease, then there came a yell irom
the boat, and two muskets were discharged
at UB, but without effect. What fools they
were to delay, for I had reloaded before the
first motion had been made to continue the
course! But to my amazement it was for
only a moment they held on their way. AB
I fired again, apparently without hitting, 1

be allowed to see her brother. Clinton In
forms her that her brother was condemnrt
as a spy, and while waiting for execution1
was burned to death In the lire of the day
before. She then demands a pass outside
the lines, proclaiming at the*same time
her loyalty to America. Mrs. Badely, Clin
ton's mistress, enters with the announce
ment that tho brother, instead of being
burned, has escaped.
It was so far a triumph. Out of ten men
wt had disabled and perhaps killed three at
least, one being an officer. Why they had
fled still numbering enough to have van
quished us could only be accounted for by
t) supposition that they knew natight of
our weakness, and feared the plain showing
of our colors was but a sign of strength an
fearlessness, if not a lure beckoning' them
to ruin. I had not dreamed of such an
easy conquest, and for the while it was all
I could do to restrain the extravagance of
my feelings. I turned to Miss King. Her
paJlor had given way and left two bright
spots of excitement which glowed on her
cheeks and matched well the brilliant
sparkle of her eye. She was trembling with
Suppressed emotion, and as I helfi out my
hand to her ih unspoken congratulation, she
took it, an'd, lifting to her lips my grimy
fingers, rose without a word and hurried

breaking therefrom, shaking his fist at the
retreating boat, and in mighty un-Quaker
mood, though in Quaker style, damued the
British high and low, afloat and ashore.
"A ci^rse on thee, thee white-livered,
fccarlet-backed cowards!" he shouted at the
tud. "To let two m^n and a girl drive thee!
Oh, by the Lord God above me, the battle
is not with the strong! Donald! Donald!
mark thee well! I tell thee we will yet best
them though they send the whole ship's
company! We will rise from the depths!
Thy hand and head have so far shown the
way! Thee will yet prevail!"
I was well aware that thns exuberance was
but the reaction following strain, I felt the
relief myself, but knew, despite the fact that
we were so far safe, the repulse would prove
but a respite. The lump that had risen to
my throat when I saw that the enemy was
beaten off still held me speechless, but it
passed presently, as did also the wildness
of the youth, and ere long we were
ing as to the next probable move of the dis
comfited redcoatB. It was true that I had
lealized the first part of my sccret hope of
overcoming the boat, but, on scanning the
horizon, there was no sign of a rescuin
wind, though I thought the south heldsom
promise of a later breeze. There was naught
to do but stand at bay and await the issue.
Kor .did we await it for long. The sun was.
sliding rapidly to the edge of the sea, being
but an hour high, its' path lying in a line
with the now thoroughly becalmed schooner
off our quarter its glare throwing a dazzling
pathway betwixt the two vessels. It is
more than likely they scented the, ad
vantage given them by their present .posi
tion, for not long after the return- of the
first expedition against us I saw three boats
leave their side and proceed along tbe track,
of blinding glitter.
To aim into this eye-watering brilliancy
with any but a mere chance of hitting a
mark was an impossibility, but/with the old
determination to face the worst, Ames and
I repaired to our posts, though the. girl still
lingered forward.
As I saw the uselessnessof protracteildc-.
lease, I let her bide away, knowing that at
the bow she would be clear of flying bullets
when the boats should come near enough to
return our fire. How the attack was planned
was at once apparent, for to cover the onset
of the boarders the schooner again opened
on us with its forward piece. In evident
fear of striking their own men, they aban
doncd their former manner of ricochetting
the ball across the water, and instead drove
point blank at us. Although we lay a plain
target, and their schooner, like the Phan
tom, was at rest, the first shot flew wide of
Ub the second passed somewhere aloft, yet
so near that I heard the horrible humming
of the ball, and the third—- To this day
they know not all they did, nor, for the
matter of that, did 1 at the time.
We had let the boats come near, that we
wight shoot with effect, and I had fired and
was about to pass tbe rifle to Gertrude, who
in lpy excitement I fancied had by this time
returned to the companion, when to my
astonishment I saw she was not behind me.
There was no time for protracted search
for, as I sprang from the cabin, where I hat
gouc to look for her, I heard her brother
discharge two pistols in quick succession and
*aw a boat sweep under our counter. In an
instaut it had hooked on fo our starboard
channels. With a round oath Ames seized
the two remaining pistols and poured their
contents into it with scarce a chance of
missing, while I rushed to his sidr, and
lifting the heavy hatch cover from .the cabin,
against which it had been leaning, hurled it
on to the heads of the packed mass below.
Beyond the fact that no man boarded the
schooner at thiB point, what execution was
made by the broad and bulky timber I never
]tnew, for at that moment the third shot
irom th* schooler struck the foretopmast
just above the hounds. In a thundering
crash down came the spar with the square
w4V OW jte* tri

back stays, "blocks and upper running, gr-ar
in general, the broken mast smiting the
d-^ck with the sound of an explosion.
The din of the shot and the tumbling
wreck stewed me around as though 1 had
been on pivot, but it was only to see that
11 was lost. From beneath the foresail
joom I saw that the other boats had hoard
ed us on the larboard bow, find already half
score of men were swarming over the side.
Even then my thoughts went to the girl,
hut she was nowhere in sight. Body and
brain work quickly in times of excitement,
'We both fired on the count of three."
ond thinking that possibly she had fallen
through the gaping hatch and into the hold,
though time was scant, I sprang for the
opening und looked down, culling her by
name. There came no answer, neither was
her body in sight, the duil gray of the lead
a!one meeting my eye. Springing again to
riy'feet, 1 drew my cutlass and retreated to
the quarter deck where' stood Ames with
drawn steel, his back braced against the
wheel and his breath coming and going as
(nough from violent exertion.

eyeing me with profound astonishment, sud

"Here's -game worth a whole watch! Sur

and surrender! Can't you see you are
beaten? You doubly damned spy, the rope
will have its own! By Saint George, but
this is luck!"
"Surrender to ye, Lieut. Bel den?" I
vociferated in turn. "By the Lord, no!
Come and take me if ye can, but 'twill not be
save. Your rope is not for me, nor will the
colors aloft be struck while I stand on this
deck! I have given over this world, and
fear neither ye nor the pink shrimps at your

tremendous one, nor would he have the
glory of defeating me dimmed by my death,
and to this ambition to take me alive ana

Saving the two shots from the first bpat,
not a small arm had- been fired by them up
to this time, their determination to carry
the vessel by cold steel alone being apparent
all through the attack. As my eye ranged
over the circle of men that spread about us
and hemmed us to the taffrail (yet for all
their numbers were held off by the com
toand of their officer), I saw many a face
well known- to me ashore, but not one ex
pressing an atom of mercy. With a watch
ful look I anticipated any possible onset,
and yet through all the pent vigor of tight
ened nerves and stiffened muscles my gaze
played beyond their lines and marked the
details of the surroundings.
The broad ocean lay almost like glass save
for the regular heave that passed over it like
a wave over the surface of molten metal.
Off our starboard beam was an upturned
boat floating lazily away, it probably having
been stove or capsized by the hatch I had
c-ist into it, and neaT it drifted the hatch
itself. On deck the fallen canvas covered the
vessel amidships, and aloft the ragged stump
of the topmast, standing clear against the
dappled sky, looked like a pine shivered by
lightning. A profound silence had fallen
where a moment before had been a din of
shouts and crashing timber—profound save
for a dull thumping forward1, which I knew
came, from the prisoners, who were thus sig«
naling for release. The moment was near
at hand when I should pass my soul to its
Maker, and yet, though tbe resolve was as
strong as ever, I wavered, not in fear of the
next world, but'dreading the terrible strug
