Then lie drnpppd the sec nd nnchor mid utepped forth from the chart house. Ills Ions vlpll win ended. Some of the elmid of care lift ed from his fneo, mid he called olircrl ly to Joey. "Conic nlonc, piip," ha nld. "Let us sample Dr. Chrlstobal's cookery. Yon have shared my ami toll ; now yon fdial' my breakfast.

They heard Courtenay's approaching footsteps al most ns soon as he gained the dock. Irstnnily she ran toward him, with hands outstretched. "Let me In- the tlrst to congratulate you!" she cried, her checks inantllnq with a rush of color ami her lips quiv ering with excitement. "How wonder ful of you to bring the slilp through nil those awful reel's mid things! No yr ! must not May you have done noth tug marvelous. Dr. Chrlstobal has told me everything. Next to Provl dence, Captain Courtenay, we owe out lives to you." Courtenay felt It would hurt hot were he to smile at hor earnestness Rut he did say; "Surely It Is not so very remarkable that I should do my best to safeguard the ship and such of her passengers and crew as survive last night's or deal." "I shall never understand how 1 cu mo to fall asleep," said lOlsle. "1 remember fueling very tired. I sat down for a moment, nnd that ended It The nett thing I heard was a rapplne on mj door and Dr. ('InK-lnhal's voloo bid ling me hurry If 1 would see the entrance to (Jin harbor." The two men exchanged glances. Courtenay laughed so pleasantly that It was good to hear. "Yet there was I up aloft, maneu ver rig the ship In the tlrm faith that Dr Chrlstobal was busy in the cook's galley." said he "Ah, we have news for you!" cried Kiele. "One of the poor fellows who was knocked on the head during that terrible fight for the boats was tho master cool; himself. He Is better now, ami breakfast can be ready In five minutes. I'll go and tell him." She ran off, and Joey scampered by her side, for he knew quite well where the kitchen lay. "Rroinldo Is useful at times," mur mured Chrlstobal, watching Klsle un til she had disappeared. Then he turn ed to Courtenay. "I suppose you have seen nothing of the boats?" "No sign whatever. And I could hardly have misled them If they were here. They may have escaped, but I doubt It. The sea ran very high for a time, and the Kansas scraped past so many reefs that It was almost Im possible for each of the three boats to have- done tho same." "IIiMi If one or more of them reach ed U) lid thero Is small likelihood that they would turn up In this particular bay?" "That Is true, especially If they used thr'r sails. The Chileans who got away In the lifeboats would know suf licient of the coast to make a northerlj course, while m.v parting Instructions to Malcolm were to keep to the north nil the time." "I wish now that poor Isobel Raring mid the other.-, had not loft us," said Chrlstobal sadly. Courtenay was about to say some thing, tut checked himself. He vni not ihlnd to the aspect of affairs which Tpllcinache had summarized so pithily. It might yet be that those who remain Ml ha l more to endure. Then Ills!" summoned them to breakfast, which was served on deck, as the salon had been temporarily converted Into a hns pital. Refore sitting down Courtenay paid n brief visit to Mr. Royle. Chrlstobal told him not to allow the wounded man to talk too much, complete rest for a few hours being essential. Rut Royle's pallid face lit up so brightly when the captain stood by his side tlir t It was hard not to Indulge him to some extent. "Huh," he said, his gruff voice strong as ever, "Chrlstobal was not humbug gin' inc when ho assured mo you were all right. Where ale wo?" "In n small diay on the east of Hano ver Island. I have not taken any ob tervatloiis jet, and there Is no hurry, Did chap. You'll be out and about long liefore vie niovo again." Rnylo smiled and closed his eyes. "I hoard the anchors go, and then 1 knew that all was well. You're the luckiest skipper nllo.it. Huh, tho bl'jomln' Kansas was lost not once, but twenty times," ".Vie you In pain, Royle?" asked CViuttoiiity, placing a gentle hand on his friend's forehead. "Not much. More stiff than sore. It wrs a knockout blow of its kind. 1 ran Just recall you haullu' mo out of tht scrimmage and' " "It will be j-oiir turn to do as much for me next time. Try to go to sleep. VWII have you on deck tomorrow." Courtenay noticed that there were only lour other sufTerers In tho sa lon. Three were filoincn Injured by tho explosion. He had a pleasant woid for each of them. Tho fourth was a sailor, either asleep or uncoil pclous, and Couiteiuiy thought ho rec ognized a severe bruise on the man'H left temple where the butt of hl.s re volver had struck hard. When hn relumed on deck ho learn ed that two other members of tho crew, In addition to the cook, wero nble to work. 'Walker had set one to clear up tho slokehold. Ills compan ion, u fireman, had relieved Mr. Tollo inaclie. Indeed, tho latter hud gone to his cabin and wns the last to nrrlvo at tho feast, finally putting In nn ap pearance lu a now suit and spotless liuon. Chrlstobal protested loudly. "1 thought this was to be n workers' meal," he said. "Tollemncho has stol en n inarch ou us. He Is quite u Rond street lounger In appearance." "Dirty job stoking," snld Tollemncho. "1 srem to bave been the only lazy person on board during the night!" cried Klsle. "Do you know what time It is?" nak ed Courlemiy. "No; about 10 o'clock, I fancy." "It Is not yet half past -I." The blue eyes opened wide. "Arc you In earnest?" she demanded. He showed her his watch. Scarce four hours had elapsed since fIio had wnlled In the captain's cabin, amid tho drenching spray nnd tearing wind, wlillo ho took Isobel and Mrs. Somor vlllo and the shrieking maid to the boat. The corners of her mouth droop ed, nnd tears trembled on her eye- y i iff" In - "Arr. you fn pofn, lioylct " ntUcd Cnur tenny. lashes. She sought furtively for a; handkerchief. K;iowlng exactly what troubled her, Courtenay turned to i Chrlstobal. "This Island ought to be Inhabited," he said. "Can you tell me what Fort of Indians one finds in this locality?" Chrlstobal frowned perplexedly. "I fear I do not know much about them," he said. "Rehlnd those hills there one Pees a few canoe Indians. I have hoard that they are somewhat lower In the social scale than the aborigines of Australia." "Are they?" said Courtenay. He looked Chrlstobal straight in tlie eyes, and tho doctor returned his gaze as steadily. "That Is their repute. They live mostly on shellfish. They do not con gregate In communities. A few fami lies keep together and move constant ly from place to place." "They are called tho Alaculof. They use bows and arrows with heads chip ped out of stone or bottle glass," put In Tollcinache. "Oh, you have been in these parts before?" cried Courtenay, regarding his compatriot with some Interest while the Spaniard surveyed his rival doubtfully. "Yes; wns on tho Emu, wrecked In Coekburn channel." Now,-tho storj- of tho Emu Is one of those fierce tragedies which the sea first puts on the st.iK of life with dire skill and then proceeds to destroy the slightest vestige of their brief exist ence. Rut such things leave abiding memories In men's souls, and Courte nay had heard how twenty-seven sur vivors out of a muster roll of thirty who escaped from the wreck had been sli.it down by Indians ambushed In tho forest. Klsle was listening to the con versation, so tho captain did not carry It further, contenting himself with the remark; "That will be useful If wo are com pelled to go ashore. You will have some acquaintance with the ways of our hosts." Tollcinache, having nothing to say, was not given to the use of unneces sary words. Klsle was cousclous of a certain constraint in their talk. "I 'lease don't mind me," she said quietly. "I know all nbout the loss of the Emu. If wo fall Into the hands of the Alaculof tribe wo shall bo not only hilled, but eaten." Each of the men admired her cool ness, but Tollcinache, who had been quietly scrutinizing the nearer hills, gave painful emphasis to this grow some topic by exclaiming: "Thero they are now smoke sig nals!" Sure moduli, thin columns of smoke wero rising from several points on the land. It could not be doubted that these wero caused by human agency. They were not visible when tho party Kit do n to breakfast. The appear- nnce of the ship was their obvious ex plauatlon, but not a canoe or a soli tary figure could bo seen, (hough Cour tenay and others at various limes dur ing the day searched every part of tho neighboring shore with field glasses and powerful telescopes. After an all too lirlef burst of sun idilno tho Land of Storms again Justi fied Its name. Cihint clouds came roll ing In from seaward; the mountains, wero lost in mist; the glaciers became sullen, rock strewn masses of whlto brown Ice; tho fresh greenery of tho forests faded Into somber belts of blackness. Though It was high sum mer In this desolate region, heavy showers of hall and sleet alternated with drenching rain. At low water, though tho Kansas floated securely in ii depth of twenty fathom, a yellow current sweeping past her starboard quarter showed how accurately Courte nay had read the tokens of the Inlet. Many a swollen torrent and perhaps one or two fair sized stream at tho Iip.h1 of the bay contributed this flood of fresh water. To Elslo and the doctor were ill Trusted the daylight watch on deck and tho caro of tho sick. Eor tho latter there was not much to be done. The took undertook to feed thorn, and Krnsciielo, the wounded stevedore who had been discovered In a state of col lapse, soon revived and was practical ly able to look after himself. The others, under Walker's directions, were hard at work In tho engine room and Btokohold. for thero itlono lay the chiilice of llliilitatp escape. The two sentinels conversed but lit tle. The oilier war of tho elements wns disturbing, and Chrlstobal, though unfiillluirly optimistic in his speech, wan nevertheless n prpy to dnrk fore bodings. Klsle, worn out by tho strain of the pi-'Tcdlng twenty-four hours nnd notwithstanding her brief sleep in the morning thoroughly exhausted for want of rest, was persuaded to ru tire early to hpr cabin. She lay down almost fully dressed. Somehow It wan impossible to ftilnk of a slate of un preparedness for any emergency. She was soon sound asleep. She awoke with a start, with nil her nerves a-qulver. Joey was tearing along the deck, barking furiously. She heard two men run past hor door with ominous haste. Then, after a heart breaking pause, there was some shoot ing. Some one-she thought It was Courtenay roared down tho snlon com panion; "On deck, all hands, to repel boarders!" Willi a confused rush, men mounted the stairs and raced forward. She knew that nearly all of those not on watch wero sleeping with the Injured men In the salon, nnd now she under stood the reason. The ship was being attacked by Indians and not nltogcthc unexpectedly. The savages hnd stolen alongside in their canoes under the cloak of night. Perhaps they were al reedy on board in overwhelming num bers. Poor girl! She murmured a pra.v-1 or while she hurriedly drew on hen boots and ulster. Thero seemed to bo no end to the i evils which assailed tho Kansas, and j she dreaded this new terror more than the mud fury of tho seas. Rut If the men were fighting for their lives nnd hers she must help too. That wns i clear. She had n weapon, a loaded re volver, which she had picked up from beneath a boat's tarpaulin lying on tho spar deck. She opened her door and peered out. She could not see any one, and the rattle of a hailstorm overhead effectually dulled any other noise. Rut several shots fired again In the fore part of the ship were audi ble above the din of the pelting hall. So she ran that way, with tho fine courage of one who fears, yet goes on, and her eyes pierced the shadows with a tense despair In them, for what could so few men do against tho un seen watchers who sent up the thirty four smoke columns she had counted?

In the year 1V,I a twelve penny black Canadian postage stamp was printed hy the government at Ottawa The public did not regard this wmhrr Issue with favor, so few were issued. One of lliese stamps was sent to the Hamilton postoffii-r, where it was snld tn an old gentlemen, who said It was a shame tn print the quren's picture cn a stamp that might be handled ,y profane hands. Tendeilv the old gentleman put il on a parcel, sending it to n friend In th" fniti d States. Hire, in the waste basket, ft lay for many u day till an errand boy found It and quickly trans fenccl It to his album. Despairing of set ting a good colli ction and his fever for stamps somewhat abating, he sold them to a dealer. The new owner, on looking at the catalogue, found thai what he had paid for was worth til. Accidentally the stamp was slipped into a 21 cent pa, kot and sent to a (baler icsldlng !n Hamilton When the latter opened the packet he was astnn Ishcd tn ilnd such a valuable stamp and, being honest, wrote his filend to In form him nf what hid happened, offer ing him Jt.COl lor it. The orfor was ne ccpted, and the stamp again changed hands, liy this time the stamp had In creased In value, and not a few came from a distance to look .it tho treasure. One day mi English nobleman, who, ihinush a Canadian friend, had heard nf the stump, offered JI.WO, which offer wns accepted. The Kngllsh lord falling In love with an American heiress and wirh- Ing lo gain the favor of her brnther, presented him with the stamp ns n token of esteem. Here, In itii new nnd Injurious American home, il came lo a sad tnd, fur one day the maid, by mis take, swept the stamp, which had ac cidentally fallen nut of the album, Into the fire. In nn Instant the n.imp which thousands had heard ot and longed for went up in smoke to the broad, blue Sky, leaving not a trace behind, TIIIIUTi; TO M'.NA'HIII CHAMI.

A ten-year extension of life will give opportunity for. the proper development of plans which must, of necessity, be somewhat tentative at first. The denial of such extension would dis credit the idea of permanence in the work of the commission. It would be a discouraging comment upon the work which the commission has already done.
