By T. JENKINS BAINS (Author oI ‘‘Wind Jammer*. * Cruise et the Petrel." Etc ) (Copyright, by Joseph B. Bowles.) We were about 50 miles south of 1 Cape Horn, hove-to in a high, rolliug, j northwest sea which made the main . deck uninhabitable. In the dog-wat< h the carpenter to »k mercy on Gantliue and myself and al lowed us to share his room in the for ward house for an after-supper smoke. We had started forward when the man on lookout hailed. Through the gloom of the Hying drift and twilight a shadow bore down upon the ship, grey-white above black. Then there suddenly loomed out the shape of a great ship tearing along under t’gal lant sails dead before the gale. Then in an instant she was gone. The drift had closed upon -her as she swept astern before anyone could read ber name. She had vanished as quick ly as she had appeared, passing on in to the dismal sea behind us like a salt-streaked mystery. We stood gazing at the whirling ift in the gloom astern for some minutes, and then we follow’ed Chip" Into his room. Gantllne could not re call the vessel by her shape or rig and asked the carpenter about ker. "Do 1 know her?" he hissed fierce ly- "Would I he apt to forget her?" 1 And he thrust out an arm, pulling up bis sleeve until a long livid scar showed clear to his elbow, "it isn't | WE SAVED HIM. likely anyone would forget the Morn ing Light if they ever sailed in her Man!

When we wen •broke a fellow wanted hands for the Morning Light, Cap’n Sun Smith, master. We hadn’t Heard of any par ticular Sam 9mith, so on we signed with shaking hands an’ dry throat*, willing to go anywhere or do anything lor enough grog to keep a!ive. Jimmy had gone in the navy, be cause he couldn't live ashore. He’d married and was sorry for it—made a mistake. But he’d never said any thing to me about ills wife or family, and I never asked. Nobody asks ques tions of anybody aboard men-o’-war. When we dropped down the bay a tug came alongside and Cap’n Smith went to the rail to greet a little hatch et fared fellow who jumped aboard. Jie was with a woman. "Sammy Smith an’ niece," said an old shellback standing on the forecas tle head, "I thought so.” "What’s the matter?" we asked. "Matter! Don't you know that fel low? That’s Morrell, the worst ihing 1n man's image that ever trod a deck plank. Come it on us as Sammy Smith! Man. If ye can get ashore, swim fer It afore it’s too late. I’m too old.” B it Morrell didn’t ship men to have them do the pier-head Jump We were In for a western ocean cruise in one of the » packet ships who will leave her rr.e n ory a black and bloody tram in the minds of sailor men. Before we'd crossed the stream, Mor rell had begun on us But—well, nev er mind. It would make the tales of old-time horror seem like play to te’l one-half of what took place in a week. Save ye, Oafltllne, I could sit here arid tell you things till morning—and each one would make you shiver. We had Bve men “missing'’ l.cTore the voyage was half over. Jimmy pud I came In for some of it but even that tiger shark aft knew when he had reached the limit—and we were inm-o’-war’s men. "One night there was a row aft and th^re were Mica of a woman. Jimmy heard them and started out on deck wlm bis sheath knife, t tit we held j him. and four of ns got the marks of the knife to remember how we saved ' him. After that Jimmy was quiet and ngly. lie never spoke »r, anyone . There were no more 'men* in the crew. | only square-head* and Dutchmen, and they never go aft. "I wouldn't consent to g > alone i when Jimmy gave me a look that to d ' his game. Soon I noticed he wouldn’t j turn In at nigh? and then ! knew |f was coming. I stole aft to ste tho end. j “I found him standing clos° under [ the break of tha poop, talking In a whisper to sr.ne one Then I caught j the glint of a skirt and r. cognize I the l vc lte of the woman. **‘It'* co n*e Jim. !«t me live it tut/ ahc ci id.

Man. it was like the great sea rolling over an outlyint reef, bursting, gathering ag in a ;e then rushing witn that mighty power to the end. When he stopped she wax choking, gasping for breath. Man, u seemed like her hrart would break. 1 couldn't help listening, hearing her pay for what she’d clone. But Jimmy never blamed her. no, not he. “Jimmy stood there waiting for hie answer. " ‘Go—go! Go anil forget.’ She w.»s choV.ln r, but it came plain and dis tlni t. There was a long silence, and 1 looked hard into the gloom. She had gon«! 1 unniv was standing there sway ing in the night like an unstayed mast and 1 led him forrads, his head hang ing down aud sagging like he w.:S asleep. “The next day it came on heavy from ihi1 northwest. Jimmy was sent aloft to put an extra gasket around the bunt of the cro’ jack where it had been bloxvu out by the gale. Some thing went wrong with the foot-rope. Lacked like a clear case of cutting, for it was all right when we furled the sail a foxv hours before. “Jimmy fell with the dull wallop that generally means death, and he landed right across the cabin skylight. It was a long fall and he was still. Morrell was watching his ship and saw ttie fall, lie started for Jimmy Just then the woman below rushed on deck and flung herself upon the poor fclloxv. 1 reached hi; head and start ed to raise him. The w’ >man was sob bing and calling for him to speak Just once more to her; and, man. It was terrible to hear her what she said. “.Morrell stood looking on, and t'sen burst Into a laugh. ^ “ So that’s him, ia It? Ho! ho! h >! So th’ts the fellow?’ An 1 he went to t)»c dying man. She was upon him bofc *e he knew it, striking him a blow that sent him reeling. Then he went taa 1 and had his pistol out filing and cursing like a maniac. It was ail over in a minute." Here Chips stopped awhile and cut some fresh plug for his pine. “Before the morning watch I had talked Heligoland’ over, and he talk d to a L)ut< hmun named Langter. An derson fiunliy joined, but Jacques xv.is afraid to go without his watch honied him.

Heligoland stood leaning upon his handspike while I picked up the pistol. The day dawned upon a storm-torn ocean, all grey-white, and a hove-to ship staggering off to the southward with her lower topsails streaming in ribbons from her Jackstays. As t ie blow wore down toward evening w-* could bear the piteous cries of a dying woman calling for her husband—" Chips waited for a few’ minutes and puffed hard at bis pi,je. Then be went on in a low voice I could hardly heir: "We buried Jimmy and his wife the next day. Old Jacois sewed them up together and weighted them All hands uncovered as they w^nt ti lee ward. I didn't know any service, and there wasn't any such thing as a B ble aboard. ‘Good-by, Jimmy,’ I said—ard let him go." There was a long silence. Gantline stood up and then sat down again He seemed to want to ask a question, b it would not. Chips watched him. "Yes." he went on, "we got five years apiece for that Five tong yeirs behind the bars, where the memory of the blue water and the hope I would gel out again kept me from go ing mad.

In itlcking so loug to his observa tory close to the summit of Vesuvius, Prof. Matteucci gives a reniurkablu proof of—what? He voluntardy re mains in peril probably great* r than is encountered by the soldier who leads a forlorn hope, and certainly greater than that of participation in any ordinary battle, says the New York T*mes. His dauger, too, takes r. form from which even the most courageous could lie excused from shrinking, for at any^moment he may be exposed to the direct action of the most powerful of terrestrial forces, and the very ground under his feet 1 may instantly crumble and drop him j into a fiery abyss that is the reality of theological imaginations. Is he risk- I ing the martyrdom of science, or 1 merely that of the scientific curiosity? In other words, is his course justified by tLe prospect of gaining from close inspection of tho volcano new and 1 valuable knowledge of the cataclysmic 1 action going on within it? Nothing in the dispatches constantly tele graphed by him to Naples very clear ly indicates that lie Is seeing any thing more than Is visible to those ob serving the eruption from a greater distance and in comparative safety, while it Is certain that notch visible to them is invisible to him. The pic tore as a whole is concealed from thf man in the midst of the whirling ash* «, and he has announced that his instruments for the measurement ol seismic disturbances have been dis placed by the constant convulsions to which they have been subjected. And yet Prof. Matteucri and his American assistant have remained coolly, or at least calmly, at their twists, and be yond any question they have utilized !n some way and to some degree op portunlties that never came, before to scientists as well equipped as they for understanding aud recording the tro mentions ev< nts of a great volcanic eruption. It is from something more than Idle, or even from scientific, curiosity that they are staking thtlr lives on the outcome of successive minutes, any one of which may lie their last. If they escape they will have the material for a "paper’’ such as has never appeared in the "trails actions" i f any society, and he is ’pes simistic indeed who does not hope that what they learn by braving the mountain's rage will prove to be worth the frightful risk involved in getting it AN INSTRUCTED PRISONER So Thoroughly Drilled He Put It On to the Lnwyei WhoCleuied Him. A New York lawyer onre had to de /end a man named Marshall, chargor with larceny, and against whom thert was very strong evidence. Before th* trial the lawyer went Jo his client and told him thnt his only chance o' escape was.in a pica of insanity, ani he advised him to play the lnantic and to answer nil questions put t< him with the word '‘spoons.” The day or the trial came on and Marshal took 1,1k place in the dock, pale, hag gnrd and wild-looking. "Guilty or not guilty?” asked tin clerk. “Spoon*!” drawled the prisoner with a blank stare. "Come, plead 'guilty' or ‘not guilty,’” repeated the clerk. "Spoon*!” was the only reply. “Prisoner, will you answer thr question put to you, or do you wani to be punished for contempt?” asked the judge. "Spoons!” bawled the prisoner, still unmoved. At this point the counsel for the prisoner interfered and told the court that his client was not in a condi tion to be out on trial, as he was evl dently not responsible for his actions and It was an outrage on a free rltl zen. «tc. "Do you understand what Is said?' asked the judge, addressing the pris oner. "HpoonK!” was Ills r^p>.r. in wild ae rents. It was evident that the man was crazy and thr judge ordered him dls charged.

His lawyer followed th*m and congratulated him on hie < scape, suggesting that it might be a good idea to pay him his fee His client .fared at him with blank amazement, and moved away with the simple remark: "Spoons!” Pole* of Paper.
