One of the fuuulest sights I ever saw was a South Sea Islauder with his first chunk of Ice, remarked the captain of a trading schooner. I was lying at anchor at one of the Navigator Islands once when some natives came aboard. It was an awfully hot day, and I had been getting some Ice up from below. The natives looked at It curiously, so I handed one o chunk. The moment It touched his hand he dropped It like hot shot and looked at his palms to see If they were burned. After a deal of Jabbering they all sat around it and watched It as It melted. They couhlu'l understand It, at all, and wheu there was nothing left but a wet spot ou the deck they sat around It and discussed the phenomen. I put a piece of Ice In my mouth and then gave them some. They shifted It from one hand to the other, put the tips of their tongues on it gingerly and finally ate the chunk. It was a source of great wonder to them. Quid Pro Quo. The Junior Partner Did you see Grinder about extending that note? The Senior Partner Yes.

It was removed to a perforated box aud tenderly fed. Two of the subalterns began to de velop a most astonishing degree of ha tred the one for the other. They were two men sufficiently alike in character and capabilities to be either the firmest of friends or the bitterest of enemies. As n matter of choice they were the latter. Jealousy was at the bottom of the trouble, no doubt. In the natural order of things, this little feeling didn't make life any the plensanter for the rest. At first It was treated as a wel come diversion, and for a time the oth er youngsters used to take an artistic pleasure In fanning the quarrel, fore most being the Junior Subnlteru. What was originally a variation of the monotony of life, however, soon came to be a nuisance, and the Irrepres ! nlbles besran to feel very sick. Then they got to wishing that one or both of the men would die. This Is not a nice sentiment to entertain toward any man, especially if ho is a brother-officer. But, most of all, each of the men wished that the other would go out, and this was even worse. At last matters came to a head. The two subalterns had a regular row one night after mess. They would have come to blows If It hadn't been for the Interference of the older men. There were six men present, all subalterns except one, and It would have been bet ter If they had let the two tight It out then and there. Probably the difficulty might have been settled finally. But peace was patched up for about three days, and then they broke out worse than ever, and said things that half a century ago would have led to pistols next morning. In the meantime, the Junior Subaltern and four other Imps of mischief had matured a plan by which they hoped to fix up the matter once for all. And In this plan, natural ly enough, the snake took some part. It was a grim enough practical Joke at the best, and they ought to have pos sessed more sense between the five of them thnn to think of such a thing. The Idea was nothing more or less thnn to propose to the two men to spend a night together, and with the cobra, In a disused room in quarters. They were to be locked In and left to settle the matter among themselves during the night, and In the morning the rest of the party would release the survivors, If any. Of course there was no thought, even for a moment, of let ting loose the corba In that way, but. as the Junior Subaltern said: "It won't do them any harm to think It out, and perhaps with reflection will come an Increase of wisdom." While the two men were still In the heat of anger, the Junior Subaltern pro pounded to them his Idea of settling their difficulty by means of the snake. He and his confederates looked nar rowly at the men, and fancied they blanched slightly at the prospect This must have been Imagination, however, for, as with one breath, they both agreed, and even seemed anxious to have the matter settled. They must have been very mad. The affair being thus decided, a dis used room was chosen as the scene of the ordeal, and was hastily cleared of what furniture was in It. This being done, the two men, who had not changed color during the scene, were stationed at opposite corners of the room, propped up in sitting positions, with a clear space between them of something like fifteen feet All preliminaries having been ar ranged, the boy brought In the fatal box and deposited It In the center of the room, In such a manner that the lid should open sideways. Here again his Ingenuity came Into play. It was ob vious that the box must be opened when all except the principals were outside the door. Luckily, the box had a sliding lid, and the Junior Subaltern was able to arrange It so that, by at taching a piece of string, any one standing outside the door would be able to slide back the Ud and so release the presumed occupant of the box. During all these arrangements the five conspirators had felt very serious. They began to realize that it was rather a grim Joke they were having. and It Is probable that the two men who weren't behind the scenes, who each doubted whether he might be alive In the morning, were less nervous. But then they were still very angry, and hadn't had time yet to think out all the details. At last all the arrangements had been settled with due exactness. The Junior Subaltern had been an uncon scionable time at work. It is probable that he was getting very alck of his hoax, and would have been glad enough to show It np If anyone had given him the lead. After all, he knew that there was an ugly side to the farce, and aa his first boyish enthusiasm died away he wanted to throw the thing up. But no one helped him out of It, and for very shame he could scarcely give him. self away. Besides, the two principals wouldn't have thanked him. Nothing more remained to be done. There was solemn enough leave-taking on all sides as the five youngsters filed out of the room and locked the door, leaving the two men In their corners and the box In the center of the room. For a moment or two the five stood In silence out In the passage, the Junior Subaltern holding the end of the string and shaking like an aspen leaf with suppressed excitement Then he gave it a sharp tug, and they could hear the box-lid sliding back until tt dropped to the floor with a slight smack. It was a hushed and rather conscience-stricken band that dispersed to the various rooms In quarters, and the hours of that night hung heavily. It la a fact that the " 'e youngsters did not average an hour of sleep between them. This was proved by the alacrity with which they all turned out at ttie first break of dawn, and assembled, shiver- lug and drawn-looking and haggard, ready to go and release their voluntary prlsouers. They were. In fact, so disturbed that they took no notice of tbo Senior Cap tain, who, for some reason best known to himself, had turned out, too, and fol lowed them as they trod softly along to the door of the disused room. He was still unnoticed as they reached It, and there made a marked halt; and his curiosity to see their little game pre- vented him from annouuetng himself, They stood for a moment In breathless silence, showing a strange, sudden dis inclination to stir. Then, as was the case the night be fore, the Junior Subaltern took the lead. There was a faint murmur as he turned the key In the lock and stepped boldly Into the room the rest following in a crowd. The Senior Captain etood for a moment outside, wondering and trying to make out what it all meant But a sudden, stifled cry caused blm to step quickly after them. He was a man who had been In sev eral actions. He had seen men killed under all sorts of ghastly circum stances. He J'sd commanded burial parties sent out ofter the Afghan wo men had been at their devilish work, and had seen sights that, hardened as he was, had made him feel sick aud full of horror. But those scenes were In no way comparable with what met his eyes as he entered the room behind his Juniors. The two men were no longer propped up In the position in which they had been left. Their swollen, distorted bodies were huddled on the floor In at titudes that showed the awful manner In which they had met their doom. But the figures, almost grotesque In the contortions which had attended the last death agony, were as nothing. In each case the face was upturned, livid, with distended cheeks and crack ed skin, with flecks of blood oozing from mouth and noRe, and with eyes widely open and a fear and horror In them past all description. It was not so much the physical agony as the ex pression of terror In the fixed faces that rendered these corpses o dreadful to contemplate. Yet the two men, while alive, were as brave, with all their faults, as any men should be. As he looked In, the Captain was glued to the ground by the nameless horror of that death-store. He seemed forgetful of his companions, of where he was, all his faculties concentrated on the two huddled masses on the floor. A ghastly Incident aroused him. The Junior Subaltern burst Into a laugh, faint at first, and then swelling Into peal after peal of uproarious mirth. The others stood aud watched him. "Ha! ha!" he shouted, reeling from foot to foot, and holding his shaking sides. "Look at them! Don't they sham well? Aren't they first-rate ac tors?" The Senior Captain stepped up ti him, and laid a hand roughly on his shoulder. Then the boy turned, and they cftild all see In his eyes that he was risd. But the touch hod quieted him. "They act beautifully, don't they?' be whispered confidentially to his senior officer. "I wonder when they first found out the Joke." "What do vou mean?" asked the other, soothingly. "Mean?" the maniac replied. "Why, don't you see? I had two boxes Just alike, and I put the empty box in here, The snake is still In my own room. It seemed something like a grim con tradlction that, almost at the same mo ment, a flat, spectacled head reared Itself under one of the bodies, and two baleful eyes surveyed the awe-struck group.
