Sir Henry Morgan BUCCANEER By CYRUS TOWNSEND BRADY, Author of "The Southerners;" "For Love of Country," "TheGripof Honor," Etc. Etc. Copyright 1905, by G. W. DILLINGHAM COMPANY Synopsis of Preceding Chapter Sir Henry Morgan, former pirate, having purchased Immunity and knighthood from the king of England, has reformed i and has become vice governor of Jama- : ica. He is deposed and. killing the offi- j cers s*nt to arrest bim, determines to i become again a freebooter. Benjamin ! Holingold, ex-pirate, who hasbeen bit- j terly wronged by Morgon, joins the for tunes of the latter inordertoseekanop portunity to wreak vengeanoe on him. Having recuited a crew of ex-pirates and Other desperadoes, Morgan seizes an English frigate and murders her crew Offfor the Spanish coast in search ofi treasure. In a desperate action, wherein are shown the daring and resourseful ness of Morgan and the courage of his men, he defeats two Spanish frigates and captures their convoy, a treasure galleon carrying an abbess and priests as passengers, Morgan shows his qualities by heaving overboard a mutin eer and shooting down a priest who at tempts to save the man Wrecked on the Venezualan coast, near La Cuayra, to which city Morgan is attract -d by Donna Mercedes de Lara, daughter of the viceroy ot Venezuela. Donna Mer-j cedes and Captain Dominique Alvarado, ; comandante of La Guayra, are in love ! with each other, but the unknown par- ; entage of Alvaradc prevents their mar- , riage. Donna Mercedes is betrothed by : her father to Don Felipe de Tobar, friend : of Alvarado. Alvarado is tempted by his ioved one to forget his dutyto tne viceroy and Don Felipe and to fly with her in- ! , stead of donveying her safely from Car- I ecee to La Guayra. He resists. On the i journey ti La Guayra rather than give, lup her lover. Donna Mercedes tries to | commit suicide by riding her horse ovc a precipice Alvarado saves her life.ai d ! when she pleads with him for love,yields ! jto her and decides that love outweighs | ! honor. Sir Henry Morgan and his ru_ j • fians capture the lovers. When the Spanish commander per ceived who were approaching, with a mistaken impulse of mercy he ordered his men to lire over their heads aud so did little danger t<> the approaching buccaneers. A few of them fell, but the rest dashed into the smoke. There was no time for another discharge. The ladders were placed against the walls, and the priests were ruthlessly cast aside and trampled down. In a little space the marauders were upon the ramparts, fighting like demons. Morgan, covered by Black Dog. with Teach. De I.ussan and 1/Ollonois, was in the lead, The desperate onslaught of their overwhelming numbers, once they had gained a foothold, swept the defenders before them like chaff. Wait ing for nothing, they sprang down from the fort an l raced madly through the narrow streets of tin- town. They brushed opposition away as leaves are driven aside by a winter storm Ere the defenders on the east forts could realize their presence they were upon them also. In ha\f :1 " ''our every man bearing a weapon bad been cut down. The town! •was at the mercy of this horde of hu-1 man tigers. They broke open wine eel- 1 lars. they pillaged the provision shops,j they tortured without mercy the uier chants and inhabitants to f >rcfe them to discover their treasures, and they in sulted the helpless women. They were completely beyond control now. Drunk with slaughter, intoxicated with lienor, mad with lust, they ravaged and plun dered. To add to the confusion, tire burst forth here and there, and before j the morning dawned half of the city was in ashes. The pale moon looked down upon a scene of horror such as it had never before shone upon even in the palmiest days of tbe buccaneers. CHAPTER XVI. '"' AUV. musketeers under llorui- Igold, chosen for their mastery with the weapon, had played 1 J their pairs with cunning skill. Concealed from observation by the j deep shadow of the cliffs and there fore Immune from the enemy's tire, they had .made targets of the Span iards <,ii the walls and by a close, rap id and well directed discharge had kept down the return of the garrison until the v.cry moment of the assault. Hornigold was aide to keep them in hand for a little space after the cap ture of the town, but the thought of the pleasure being enjoyed by their comrades was too nimh for them Anxious to take a hand in the hideous fray, they stole away one by one, 1 slinking under the cliff until they were beyond the reach of the boatswain, i then boldly rushing for the town in the open, until the old sailor was left with only a half dozen of the most de pendable .surrounding himself and prisoners. The rest would not have got away from him so easily had he not been so intensely occupied thai at first he had taken little note of what was going on Mercedes anil Alvarado had only op portunity to exchange a word now and then, for extended conversation was prevented by the guards. Alva rado strove to cheer the woman he loved, and she promised him she would choose instant death rather than dis honor. He could give her little en- couragement of rescue, for unless word of their plight were carried to ibe viceroy immediately he would be far on the way to the Orinoco country Ik? fore any tidings could reach him. mv by the time he returned it would b too late. Again ami again Altarada strove t break b's bouu.i In Impotent aud help less fury, but this time he was secure ly bound, and his captors only laughed at his struggles, In the midst of theii grief and despair they both took notice Of the poor abbess. Fra Antonio had not moved since Morgan had struck him down, hut there was life still iv the woman, for from where they stood, some distance back, tbe twe lovers each marked her convulsive trembling. The sight appealed pro foundry to them In spite of their peril ous situation. "The brave sister lives," whispered Mercedes " Tis so." answered Alvarado. "So nor." he called, "the sister yonder is alive. Wilt not allow us ttr minister tc her?" "Nay." said Hornigold brusquely, "1 will go myself. Back, all of ye!" In added. "She may wish to confess tc me in default of the worthy father." He leered hideously as he spoke. "Coward!" cried Alvarado. But hi? words affected Hornigold not at all. Before he eoulil say another word the guards forced bim rudely back with the two women. The worthy Senora Agnpida by this time was in a state of complete and total collapse, but Mercedes bore herself her lover marked with pleasure—as proudly and as resolutely as if she still stood with in her father's palace surrounded bj men who loved her and who would die for her. RolUng the body of the prostrate old man aside, Hornigold knelt down on the white sand by the form of the sis ter. Tbe moonlight shone full upon her face, and as he stooped over he scanned it with his one eye. A sudden Hash of recognition came to him. Will: a muttered oath of surprise he looked again. "It can't be!" he exclaimed. "And yet"— After Fro Antonio's bravo attempt at absolution tbe woman bad fainted. Now she opened her eyes, although she was not yet fully conscious. "Water!" she gasped feebly. And as it chained the boatswain had a small bottle of tbe precious fluid hanging; from a strap over his shoulder. There was no pity in the heart of the pirate: he would have allowed the woman to die gasping for water without giving her a second thought, but when he rec ognized her—or thought he did—there instantly sprang into his mind a desire to make sure. If she were the pe;s >v he though; her she might have infor mation of value. Unsliuging the )„>; tie and pulling out the cork, he placet it i > her lips. •I— die." she intUTiinnpd in a strortgei ■ There, is none here." answered the boatswain. "Fra Antonio—he absolv ed you." "But I must confess." "Confess to me," chuckled the old ma;', in ghastly mockery. "Art in h >iy orders, senor':" inn; tered the woman. "Holy enongb for yon. Say on."
