Courtenay's approaching footsteps al

Irstnnily she ran toward him, with

Courtenay felt It would hurt hot

Rut he did say;

The two men exchanged glances.
Courtenay laughed so pleasantly that
It was good to hear.
"Yet there was I up aloft, maneu

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

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

"I suppose you have seen nothing of
"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

"IIiMi If one or more of them reach

was served on deck, as the salon had
been temporarily converted Into a hns
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
"Huh," he said, his gruff voice strong
as ever, "Chrlstobal was not humbug

all right. Where ale wo?"
"In n small diay on the east of Hano

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

ran Just recall you haullu' mo out of

"It will be j-oiir turn to do as much

Courtenay noticed that there were
only lour other sufTerers In tho sa

tho explosion. He had a pleasant

When hn relumed on deck ho learn

crew, In addition to the cook, wero

clear up tho slokehold. Ills compan

Chrlstobal protested loudly.
"1 thought this was to be n workers'

"Dirty job stoking," snld Tollemncho.
"1 srem to bave been the only lazy

"Do you know what time It is?" nak
"No; about 10 o'clock, I fancy."
"It Is not yet half past -I."
The blue eyes opened wide. "Arc

He showed her his watch. Scarce

"Are they?" said Courtenay. He
looked Chrlstobal straight in tlie eyes,
and tho doctor returned his gaze as
"That Is their repute. They live
mostly on shellfish. They do not con

"They are called tho Alaculof. They

nay had heard how twenty-seven sur
vivors out of a muster roll of thirty
who escaped from the wreck had been

"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

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.

there was not much to be done. The

Krnsciielo, the wounded stevedore who
had been discovered In a state of col

ly able to look after himself. The
others, under Walker's directions, were
hard at work In tho engine room and

chiilice of llliilitatp escape.
The two sentinels conversed but lit

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

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

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

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

latter opened the packet he was astnn

It is iinllclpHted thnt a result of the
hearing by Ihe house ways and means
committee, tomorrow morning, upon the
bill extending the life of the industrial
school eornmlssslon, will be that the
extension of tenure will be made ten
vears, instead of two years, as in the
existing' bill Public opinion npprei lutes
the work which this commission has
done during Its term of office and the
slate is awakening to the importance of
Industrial education. Put this work has
scarcely been begun. Two vears more
will be sufficient only for an outline of
the foundations upon which the state
syMcm of Industrial education Is to
be built. 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.
