Arthur Moreton, smiling at his
friend's enthusiasm, directed his atten
tion to the owner of tho pink parasol,
who was walking slowly along the
broaTI walk", accompanied by a demure
little woman in black. She'was a tall,
fair beauty, with the figure of a Juno
and the carriage of a queen. As she
passed she turned and caught the look
In Munro's eyes. It evidently discon
certed her, for she colored slightly and
lowered her sunshade.
'Why, that'B Miss Armstrong, the
Lancashire beauty, as they call her,"
whispered Moreton.
"Miss who?" asked his sailor friend.
"Armstrong, daughter of old Ninety
nine Ship Armstrong, the millionaire.
Didn't you know?"
"No. How should I?" said Munro.
"She isn't tho girl you brought me
here to see, the one you said you'd fall

"Of course she is, you oakum head.

"No but don't bo quite a blathering
Idiot, Bob. What on earth do you sup
pose you are going to do?"
"Do!" ejaculated the young captain.
"I'm going to marry her."
Moreton shook the seat silently for a
few moments, then burst Into the most
uproarious laughter. "Bob," he said
later, "I see now why you don't be
lieve in obstacles. Well, I wish you
luck. If good looks and determination

for the life of me I can't see how you

"No?" replied Munro. "Nevertheless
I shall marry her."
"What's that you say, Mr. Calker, a
stowaway?" said Captain Pugley testi
ly as he leaned over the poop rail.
"Yes, sir," replied the mate, looking
up from tho deck below. "We found
him in the fore peak, stowed among the
pork barrels."
"Well, well, send him aft, Mr. Calk
er, and let me see him, and In the
meantime keep a sharp lookout for a
no'th'ard bound vessel. We may get
a chance to ship the beggar back."
Captain Pugley was furious. After
all his care and anxiety that things
should run smoothly on this trip
As Captain Pugley stamped savagely
back and forth at the break of the
poop the stowaway, with the boatswain
behind him, came slouching aft. lie
stopped at the after hatch and Btood,
cap in hand, shuffling bis feet like an
embarrassed schoolboy, looking down
at the deck. A tall, squarely built fel
low he was, with an almost shaven
head and a week's growth of black
stubble upon his upper Hp and chin. A
faded brown overcoat, with the collar
turned up and much too small, was
buttoned tightly across his chest, while
below it hung a pair of patched and
greasy dungaree troUBers. His four
days' sojourn In the dark bowels of the
forepcak, amid the coal, the tar barrels,
the brine oozlug "salt horse" casks and
all the rust and sweat of that sailor's
corner cupboard, bad apparently affect
ed him very little, except that he had
gathered souvenirs of them all and was
in consequence besmudged and dirty.
"This is the man, sorr," said the grull
voiced boatswain.
The captain abruptly ended his walk
and danced down the poop ladder like
a man on wires.
"You scoundrel!" he cried, shaking
his fist under the dirty one's node.
"How dare you stow away aboard my
vessel, you skulking lubber? How dare
you, I snyl What do you mean by
sneaking aboard to eat honest men's
food and give nothing in return, you
thief! You Jailbird! You—you"—
"Beg pardon, sir, but I ain't afryd to
work, sir," protested the stowaway
"Don't talk back to me, you hulking
loafer, or I'll put you in Irons!" snap
ped the skipper. "And you can make up
your mind that, If I don't send you
back before, you'll get three months'
hard labor when wo reach Adelaide.
What Is your name?"
'Awkins, sir."
"Ever been to sea?"
"No, sir, I can't rightly B'y as I've
been to sea, sir, but I've knocked abaht
the river quite a bit, and I've "been as
far as Marglt once, sir."
Tho boatswain grinned broadly at
this even the captain could not forbear
"Well," lie said, "put him to work,
bos'n." And the green hand went for
ward to be initiated into the mysteries
of the "slush bucket" and the "soogey
moogey" can.
Unfortunately, as the captain put it,
no homeward bound vessels were sight
ed until it was too late to think of re
turning the stowaway. Ho was there

dirty workman, where he showed re
markable uptness for some things and
a marvelous stupidity about others. In

Tho Dumbarton, like many Australian
clippers, carried a limited number ot
cabin passengers. On this trip she had
seven—a young married couple linined
Sweting, a Frenchman of the niiiuc of
De Montparnasse, Mr. Angus, a South
Australian horse breeder, and the own
er's party. The latter consisted of Mr.
Armstrong, his sister-in-law, Mrs.
Pearce and hi? daughter Beatrice.
In the natural order of things on ship
board it was not long before this little
company got shaken together, and
then, in the natural order of humanity,
paired oiT. The young married couple
clung to cach other with praiseworthy
tenacity tho captain and Mr. Arm
strong were constantly to be found
talking ship together Mr. Angus and
Mrs. Pearce, wlro was a widow, be
came boon companions, and De Mont
parnasse danced dally attendance upon
Miss Beatrice.
Such was tho state of affairs when
the Dunbarton was three weeks out, at
which time she careened to tho full
strength of the northeast trades and
with every rag set was bowling swift
ly down to the southward. Then, day
by day, the sun shone hotter, sea and
sky took on a warmer tone, the air
.grow balmy, and shoals of glittering
flying fish skipped lightly past the bow.
The poop awning was brought out and
stretched, cane chairs and lounges, rel
ics of a former East Indian voyage,
made their appearance, and the pas
sengers, driven from below by the
beat, spent most of their time on deck.
At four bells one evening Huwklns,
the stowaway, came aft to the wheel.
By taking the second dog watch trick
for men who wanted to play "bluff"
the stowaway earned his tobacco.
"Sou' by east," he repeated after tho
man whom he relieved, and he grasped
the spokes with tho air of one who en
Joyed his occupation.
Below in the saloon tho cabin folks
were at tea. Through the open sky
light came the Sound of their voices
and laughter. At the break of the poop
the second mate leaned thoughtfully
over the weather rail. An ordinary
seaman was shipping the side lights.
The slush lamps in the house and fore
castle began to show. Slowly the sun
departed, night overlapped tho day,
and darkness fell like a garment upon
the waters.
Hawkins leaned comfortably against
the wheelbox, bis face Illuminated by
the blnnaale light, occasionally giving
the slilp a few spokes up or down. He
bad developed into an excellent helms
man. Suddenly the man's frame stif
fened, and he stood bolt upright, lis
tening. A woman's laugh had sounded
at the foot of the companlonway. It
was followed by a patter of feet on the
leaded stair, and a moment later Miss
Armstrong, attended by De Montpar
nasse, stepped on deck.
trips, here was one of thoBe unfortu
nate hitches for which the layman sees
no excuse and which therefore create
false impressions. Under 6rdinary cir
cumstances the discovery of an extra
mouth to feed would not have aroused
the little captain's ire. A stowaway on
the third day out is usually "turned to"
and accepted with a philosophy born
of the knowledge that, though disa
greeable, he is an unchangeable fact,
while the mate's watch rejoice over
the sinner as an extra hand. In this
case, however, things were a little out
of the ordinary—a little strained, per
haps uncomfortable the reason for
which will be readily understood when
I explain that that awful and powerful
personage aliko to shipmaster and
mates, the owner, was aboard.
As the pair seated themselves on the
weather side of the skylight Miss Arm
strong was struck with the expression
on Hawkins' face. Ills forehead wore
a scowl, and his dark eyes shone with
an angry light in ill accord with bis
usual good natured appearance. It
looked so unlike the smiling follow who
puttered about the poop all day and in
his capacity waited upon her with
such uncommon care and thoughtful
ness that she found herself speculating
about the man for the first time.
Though in her natural kind way she
had often bestowed a word of encour
agement or praise upon the "poor stow
away," aB she called him, she had nev
er given him a thought in any other
wny, and, indeed, why should she?
The average woman never sees a man
who is poorly dressed. Yet now, for
some unaccountable reason, she sud
denly found herself wondering what
the fellow's past had been. Under
cover of the darkness she looked at
him closely. "What a strong face!"
she thought. "But for the black stub
ble on his upper lip and chin he might
be a handsome man." As Hawkins
raised his eyes from the compass card
and looked toward the skylight with
half blinded eyes she gave a little
"What is the matter. Miss Arm
strong?" asked her companion In his
own tongue. "Are you ufraid?"
"Don't you think It's rather chilly
sitting here? Shall we walk a little?"
she replied evasively.
At one bell her cscort went below,
and Miss Armstrong strolled Idly aft
to lean over the taffrall and gaze at
the sparkling wake. As she watched
the murmuring eddies slip from the
rudder and go swirling away to the
black water astern she kept repeating
to herself, "Where have I seen those
She was disturbed presently by the
appcarance of a shark under the coun
ter of the vessel. A faint, ghostly light
far down beneath the keel was the
first Intimation of Its coming, gradual
ly growing larger and more bright ns It
neared the surface until the outlines of
the great fish could bo plainly seen,
and the phosphorescent halo round It
Illumined the Dunbarton's stern. Im
pelled by curiosity, not unmixed with
fear, the girl stretched farther across
the top rail to watch the movements of
this phantom scavenger of the sea.
On a sudden her foot slipped on the
dewy deck. She pitched forward, lost
her balance and had gone headlong
overboard but for the man at tho
wheel. Before she wholly realized her
danger HawklnB caught hor about the
waist and, lifting her bodily, placed
her on her feet again. For a moment
the great fellow held her and looked
down nt her frightened face.
You little fool!" ho said at last
Then, deftly catching the twirling
wheel, he returned to his post, white
to the lips.
At tbc stowaway's words the rush of
mingled emotions that rose in Bcatrlco
Armstrong's mind was cheeked by in
dignation. How dure tlMs common
man call fyer a "little fool?" Humiliat
ing as iiitf' position was, she yet drew
herself up proudly and without look
ing at him said, "I will sec that yop
are rewarueu ror-tms, Mr. Hawkins,'
upon which she swept haughtily" past
him and descendod tho companion
Tho stowawuy smiled.
The episode had taken place so rap
idly and with so little noise that the
second mate knew nothing about it. A
few minutes later, lfowcver, noticing
that tho weather leeches were lifting
and thinking it caused by a change of
wind, he ran aft to the compass. lie
found Hawkins staring fixedly nt tho
card and the vessel three points off her
"Where are you steering to?" ho be
gan. "Hard up, you soldier!" And a
stream of abuse followed.
Hawkins awoke as from a dream
and, muttering an Incoherent excuse,
Jammed the wheel over.
Hardly had tho officer returned for
ward before tho stowaway heard a
rustic of drapery, and Miss Armstrong
again stood besftic him. She had re
pented. The proud girl's better nature
had asserted Itself. She saw how she
had wronged him and with noble
spirit had hastened back to humble
herself to the man to whom she doubt
less owed her life.
Hawkins," she said. In a grave,
sweet voice, "I have come to apologize
to you for my rudeness. You must, 1
nin sure, think ine very ungrateful, but
I am not. I was angry at nothing,
and I want you to forgive me, nnd I
want to thank you for saving me from
such a horrible death."
Tho stowaway's dark eyes were turn
ed full upon licr. Ills upper hand, seen
by the binnacle light, trembled visibly,
but ho did not speak."
"Won't you forgive mo?" said the
girl, holding out her hnnd to him. "I'm
very sorry."
Hawkins Inclosed her small, white
hand within his own great palm and.
quickly bending, kissed it
'Forgive?" he murmured. "It Is 1
who should ask forgiveness."
"Now, then, Hawkins, where In
blnzes are you going to now?" came
from the second mate.
The weather leechcs wore shivering
again, and the olilccr came hurrying
aft. "Oh, excuse me, Miss Armstrong,"
he added. "I didn't know you were on
"You must not blame Hawkins for
anything tonight, Mr. Outram," replied
the young lady whereupon she told
tbc second mate what hud happened,
and that gentleman snld nfterwurd
that it wns just his luck to miss the
one opportunity of his life of getting a
captain's billet.
After eight bells nawkins was called
into the saloon to receive the thanks
of Mr. Armstrong. In vain Hawkins
protested that be "didn't do nothlnk—
leastways no more than any man
would have done." Mr. Armstrong
would not listen to it.
my man," he said, "you have done me
a great service tonight, and in return
I intend to do something for you. Be
fore we reach Adelaide you must come
and tell rac your plans. I mean to
start you in the new country. Will
you take a glass of wine, Hawkins?"
"Thank you, sir," replied the stowa
way. "Well, 'ere's your werry good
'calth, sir, nnd yours, miss, and yours,
cap'n." And with a merry twinkle in
his eye he emptied the glass.
For three days after this occurrence
Beatrice never once appeared on deck,
but kept strictly to her own cabin and
the large after stateroom reserved for
the use of the ladies. The truth of the
matter was, she felt a little delicacy
about again meeting Hawkins. The
man had acted so strangely, first going
to one extreme and then to the other,
that she needed a little time to rellect
how she should treat him, and she
found it rather a hard thing to decide,
for, whilo the fellow had in all proba
bility saved her life, it was evident that
he was in love with her, and it was
possible, she thought, that he might
construe her gratitude as encourage'
ment With a woman's sensitiveness,
moreover, she had not yet forgiven him
for calling her a "little fool." She was
neither little nor a fool, and she knew
it and, again, there was that puzzling
familiarity about his eyes. Underneath
it all, though unacknowledged even to
herself, she could not help feeling cu
riously interested in and attracted by
this strange stowaway. When at last
she set her course of action and re
turned to the deck, she found little
cause for embarrassment, for tho man,
she learned, had asked to go back into
the mate's watch and was now work
ing in various parts of the vessel with
the other hands, no had overcome his
reluctance to go aloft and was picking
up tho duties of a sailor with astonish
ing rapidity.
The Dunbarton, after two weeks of
calms, light airs, terrific thunderstorms
and fierce heat, finally drifted across
the line and caught the southeast
trades. Then for a spell tho course was
"full and bj\" Except for a "sweat up'
each morning and evening they started
neither brace nor halyard, the "shell
backs" snoozed at night in their watch
on deck, the captain was lu the best of
humor, and the ship forged steadily on
into the great south sea.
Meanwhile Beatrice Armstrong found
her interest in the stowaway growing
strangely fast. Not only was her curi
osity aroused, which in itself with the
fair sex means much, but the man
seemed to exert a subtle infiueucc over
her which always made its presence
felt. Unconsciously she looked for him
when she came up for fresh air and
exercise, and often she caught herself
thinking and wondering over his con
tradictory words. Before, when he was
continually on the poop, she was rarely
conscious of his presence, but now he

vas, there was Hawkins rattling down
the. topmast rigging or placing chafing
gear, his eyes fixed uj her. Did her
glance wander forward along the deck,
Hawkins would look up from' his paints
ing, his sennet making or the rop© up
on which he was hauling and meet
Jiuit fflance. Did.8be hear
the forecastle during dog watch hours,
It was the deep voice of Hawkins.
Even In the night, when the nolso of
hauling the braces or making sail
awakened her, she heard the stow
away's sonorous "singing out" abovo
all other sounds.
By the time the Dunbarton ran down
into the "roaring forties" the young
lady had openly snubbed'the sleek De
Montparnasse and was worrying her
aunt by persistently going on deck at
all times and In all weathers.
One morning when the vessel was
sixty-one days out and Just abreast of
the cape Mr. Angus tumbled up on
deck for a look around before break

nawkins at the wheel.

horse breeder. "Still nasty gather, I

When Maeuiomilns, the American
sculptor, wns a young man working in
Paris, FnltftikMv, tho .famous French
sculirfur, on ono occasion entered his
atelier mul found there a beautiful
Diana that had been for months "on
the stocks" anil was approaching a
perfection measurably satisfactory to
the sculptor himself.
Falguiere became so absorbed In tho
work before him as to forget that It
was not his own. He began to twist
and pull the dainty limbs of Diana this
way and that, to punch her In the ribs,
turn her queenly head—for she was
then only in clay, of course, and BUS*
ci'ptible to impressions—until at last
he had produced the very pose ho de
sired. "There, my friend I like her
better so," he cried and skipped out of
the studio.
He had really intended to do Mac
monnles a favor and had Indeed paid
him the greatest compliment of which
he was capable, but the young sculp
tor was in distress, for on comparing
tho remodeled Diana with a photo«

same character he found the French
man had unconsciously made a prac
tical replica of the other. Macmon
nles did not rest until he had restored
his statue to its original pose.
