It was late in the afternoon when we passed a steam yacht, which seemed to he headed for New Orleans. She passed us to starboard. (apt. Parker sized her iif) through a glass and said: “ ‘There is that yacht you were talking about, Seymour. That is the “Shark.” * “He was positive about it. The first mate also said it was the ‘Shark." She was about a mile and a half Rway, and they could not make out her name. Both knew the ‘Shark’ well, and were dead sure they could not be mistaken. ” I he gab" set us back so much that we did not reach Havana until Tues day morning. Col.

There was little to his story which has not lieen told. Ilestor had contracted with him to build » bungalow on the shore of the (iulf of Mexico south of Vera Cruz. Ilestor had prepared the plans, which, when slightly modified by Col. McIntyre, were sufficient for the pur pose. He purchased the lumber and materials in New Orleans, and sailed with three carpenters for the site selected. Extra workmen were sc "IT IS NOT ON ANY ISLAND.” cured at \«wa ( ruz. The three car penters were then working for Col. McIntyre in Havana. "tan you take us direct to the place. Col. McIntyre?” asked Miss Helen. I can take you there, hut we could not take the yucht in without a pilot," said Col. McIntyre. ' The surf is retv heavy, and it is dangerous for small boats. We had a pilot from Tampico. My advice is to pick him up on the way down, and then we will have no trouble. When will you start?” ".lust as soon as you are ready, colonel." said Chalmers. “We must take on eoal. but that will not take long." "I am all ready,” said Col. McIn tyre. "I am x tci-t busy man. and have some contract* on my hands which require my constant attention, but when Mr. Seymour told me about this I dropped everything. I am entirely at your service. Miss Cnr ntotly,” said the gallant colonel. "I do not know how to thank you, < ol. Melntyre. ’ said Miss Carmody. “it Is Hot necessary for me to as sure you that we shall not permit you to suffer any financial loss on ac count of your kindness.” Karly in the afternoon the "Helen Carmody” glided swiftly out of Ha vana harbor and took a course al most due west. It was night before the ragged coast of Cuba faded in the eastern sky. The day was warm, but it was pleasant under the awn ings and the six passengers thor oughly enjoyed the afternoon. Mr. Seymour told some of his news paper experiences, and kept the party in laughter and good spirits. In the evening Mrs. White took her place at the piano, and persuaded Miss Car mody to sing. Her voice was singular ly sweet sind sympathetic. Capt. Baldwin sind several of his officers stood in the doorway and enjoyed the musical tresit. Then Mrs. White played some familiar airs, and all joined iu the chorus. It was midnight when tlie voyagers retired to their rooms. The weather continued line the following day. which passed without incident worili recording. Mr. Chalmers seemed to have no difficulty iu monopolizing most of Miss (larmody’s time. This did not escape the attention of Mr. Seymour. I hat will be the next kidnapping case." lie remarked to .lack Stevens as Chalmers and Miss Carmodv prom enaded past them.

I’ll#* yacht was running almost due south, and was about I*, mile- ofT shore, There wa a faint haze over the water, but it was lifting in t he quickening v» est breeze. Mr, Seymour was seated near the bow of the vaelit. “Look at that for a schooner yacht!” he exclaimed, pointing ahead and a little to starboard of their course. “That is a beauty! Look at those sails! Wouldn't they stop you! ('apt. I’.aldwin what Is the techinal name for that class of ship? It is not classified in my marine books.” ("apt. Maldwin was studying the st range-looking craft through his glasses. He did not answer Mr. Sey mour's question, lint stepped to where Chalmers and Jack Stevens were standing. “Do you know the missing men by sight ?" he asked. ”1 do,” said Chalmers. "Look at the men on that boat through this glass. They are sig nalling to ns.” Chalmers took one long, searching look. They were rapidly approaching the odd-looking craft. The men on hoard of it were frantically waving handkerchiefs and cloths. “It's them!” said Chalmers. “1 rec ognize Sidney Hammond and Mr. Kent! ” Chalmers rushed to where Miss Cnr mody and Mrs. White were seated abaft the rear deck house. “I think I have good news. Miss Carmody.” he said. His face bore evidence more eloquent than words. "Do not get < xclted. I think we have found Mr. Carmody and his compan ions. Come along.” Miss Carmody turned pale for an instant, and almost staggered ns she started to rise. She took Chaliner's proffered arm and walked rapidly for ward. The whistle of the “Helen Carmody” sounded a long, shrill blast. The motion of the engines ceased, and the yacht swung to port. As it did so the raft came into full view, not a thousand feet away. Light men in yachting suits were standing oil the roof of a low cabin, waving their arms and yelling like Indians. An answering shout went up from Seymour. Stevens and Col. McIntyre. Again the whistle sounded its wel come note, and the screw churned the gulf as the signal was given to hack water. "There's papa!” exclaimed Miss Carmody. Her hand tightened con vulsively on Chalmers arm. hut she did not faint or go into hysterics. This was not a Carmody trait. " 1 here he is God bless him!” she exclaimed, as Mr. Carmody waved his hand and shouted: “God is very good to us; they are all safe!” f The sun broke through the haze, and every figure on the raft showed sharply in the flood of light. At the forward end of the craft a monkey tugged at his chain and jabbered in excitement. Sidney Hammond and Mr. Kent were cutting away the lash ings of the dingy. The raft was now so near the yacht that ( apt. Bald win gave the order to go slowly ahead, so as to avoid collision. The boat-boom swung into place, and the gig was lowered. Four sail ors leaped into the boat, and with lusty strokes were speeding to the raft. There was quite a sea on, and the gig had difficulty in approach ing “The dumping Jupiter." But in a few minutes Mr. Cnrmody, Mr. Bock well. Mr. Haven and Mr! Mor ton were on hoard the dancing gig and on their way to the yacht. As the gig neared the “Helen Car mody." the crew and its guests lined up along the rail and gave cheer after cheer. A stalwart seaman "Ml:. CIIAI.MEFtS IS TOO MODEST TO TELL THE TFILTH.

A moment Inter, a Wig. sunburned man held in his urm» his brave, beautiful daughter. • >li. papa, are you sure you are not hurt, or siek. or anything?" asked Mis* Helen, rather indefinitely, 51 * *he stepped huek for iin instant and through joyous tears looked into her father's rugged and liuppy fare.

When all looked dark he never hist hope. He thought of everything, planned ev erything, and everything has hap pened just as he predicted.” “You are very kind to say so.” snid Mr. Chalmers, the blood mount ing to cheeks seldom flushed by emo tion. "But Miss Helen gives ine too much credit. It was my good for tune to hold a responsible position on a paper which believes in ‘doing tilings.’ and this is one of them. Let me introduce you. Mr. Carmody. to the gentlemen who share with me the pleasure of having been able to un ravel this mystery.- Mr. Carmodv. this is Mr. Bernard Seymour. Per mit me also to introduce Mr. John Stevens.” Mr. Carmody greeted these gentle men heartily, and was introduced to Col. McIntyre. Mr. Rockwell. Mr. Haven and Mr. Kent joined the group. In the democracy of joy or peril, formal introductions are unneces sary. Everyone talked and laughed at once. Mr. Rockwell so far for got his dignity and the polite con ventionalities as Jo hit Mr. Carmody a vigorous blow on tbe shoulder—a liberty not in tin* least resented by Hint gentleman. -Mr. Haven proposed three cheers for Miss Helen Carmody. As thn sturdy yell was given there canm an answering cheer from "The Jump ing Jupiter.” “What I want to know is this” said Mr. Rockwell, ns they watched the gig approach the raft. “What is ♦ tie name of that island over there?” Mr. Rockwell waved his hand to the west. The haze was lifted so that the shore was clearly visible. ‘*\\ bat island do you mean, Mr, Rockwell?" asked ( apt. Baldwin. “'I'ln* island we have been occupy ing for the past two weeks.” re plied Mr. Rockwell. "We tried all yes terday afternoon to run around it to the north, and when we woke up this morning it waa still to tin* west of us.” “That is a pretty large island," said Cnpt. Baldwin. ‘‘It is nothing more nor less than tlie North Amer ican continent. That is the Mexican coast over there. If you look sharp you can see the cathedral towers in Vera Cruz to the soutInvest. You must have run past Vera Cruz in the night. Mr. Carmoilv laughed heartily. “So we have been on the mainland all the time, have we?” lie said. “Well, that is pretty good. Hut we might as well have been on an island. A rabbit could not get to ‘Morton’s Hav.’ unless he knew how to swim. W ell, we hail a good time if we were kidnapped.

Mr. Carmoilv explained the discovery of the gold idols in the old ruined temple. Mr. Carmoilv formally introduced I.. Sylvester Vincent to Bernard Sey mour.

Sylvester Vincent, of Chicago,” Mr. Vincent replied. “Oh yes. you art' the man I arrest ed in St. Louis last week.” Seymour then explained to the as tounded \ incent the mistake that had been made, and all joined in the laugh which followed.

(Acts 24:10-16. 24-26.) lo I hen Paul. after that the governor l art beckoned unto him to speak, answered. Forasmuch as 1 know that thou hast been ot many years a judge unto the nation. 1 do the more cheerfully answer for myself: il. Because that thou niayst under.-tand that there are yet but 12 days since i went up to Jerusalem for to worship. 12 And they neither lound me in the temple disputing with any man. neither raising up the people, neither in the svna gngu*s nor in the city: Neither can they prove the things whereof th*-y now ace use me. 14 But this 1 conf<-ss unto thee, that after the wa\ w hich they call heresy, «<o worship I the Cod of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: And havi hope toward God. which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a re>urr« <-ii<>rj «f the diad, both of th* ms: and unjust l'» And b-rtin do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of ofTcnse toward Cod, and toward men 21.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. It. y\ill la* seen that I’atilf makes a perfect defense, so far as the charges against him are concerned, lint it should also be noted that he does more than acquit himself of them: he so makes known the character of “the sect" to which he is accused of belong ing (hut y\ hicli he calls “the Way”), that he justifies its existence and i's right to his fealty. Paul did not think of himself alone. When our last lesson closed. Paul had been brought under guard to Caesarea, the Homan capital of Pales tine. and had been imprisoned in w'hat was originally Herod's palace. It \yas now the governor's official residence. and yy;is fortified. i lie orator the .lews took with them was their tulvoeate or lawyer and conducted the ease. He began in true oriental style by flattering the judge. The .lews, through their law yer, made three charges. Hear in mind that while Felix had not been a good ruler, lie had been active in ridding the country of “robbers and impos tors who deluded the multitude." He had executed many of them. The first charge was that Haul was one of these very trouble-makers whom Felix was trying to gei rid of; the second charge was that lie was a ringleader of the heretical "sect of the Nazarenes" (Christ ians), and the third, that he was guilty of sacrilege, having attempted to profane the temple liy taking fien tiles into the forbidden inelosurr. In his defense Haul took up in order the three charges that had been made against hint. He began courteously but with no flattery. “Forasmuch as I know ... I cheerfully make my defense:" lie was especially glad to have a judge who had known the .lews for a number of vears. for the better the judge knew them and their re ligious fanaticism the surer would lie be to understand the situation. "Not more than twelve days:" Haul’s stay had been short and hi> record could be easily looked it)). "Neither can they prove:*’ Haul flatly denies the lii<! charge the only one that would seem serious to a Homan and challenges proof of his guilt. The second lie frankly admits. “The Way:" One of the earliest names applied by the db eiples to Christianity. Haul claims, however, that he does noi belong to a heretical sect, because (It he wor shiped tile true find. (".*) lie reverenced the Hebrew Scriptures. (:;) he believed with tlie Pharisees in the resurrection of the dead. "Herein:” In this faith. “I also exercise myself:” I school my self to do right, strive to have a clear conscience, which, even to Haul, was not always easy. Verses 17-“l give Haul’s answer to th. third ehargi Felix saw that no ease had been made out against Paul, and v i t be did not want to anger the Jew -. so he sim ply adjourned the ease till another t i tile Feli x w as in ten > ted in Pa ul. lie w as also interested in the Vanrenes. and so summoned his prisoner to a private interview.
