However Just or unjuat the ap pellation. there wa s one man aboard her who would have been a moat ap propriate decoration to a y anlarm. Thla was Dixon, called "Crocky" Dixon, i 'rocky was a sobriquet that b? ac i quired when It became known that rverythlng weaker than he that cam* hi contact with hla powerful Jaws must be crushed. He was a mild looking lit tle mau. slender aa a girl and upon oc casion quite aa much of a fury aa a girl accrued. - lu 1805. when the Ala bama visited the Indian archipelago, Dixon deaorted and made thlnga Uvaly for that region for a long time. The beat thing in the way of a crula ar Cracky could get was a small achqoner. which lie named In honor of hla late couimauder. the Kaphael H. Setnmes. How or from whom he took her doesn't pertain to thla yarn. Dixon was sitting In the cabin one evening at anchor in Singapore strait with a bottle of wine beside him that had been Intended for the table of an Eng lish nobleman. There was hut one light aboard, and a tarpaulin stretched across the sky- 1 light Interfered with Its being seen. The pirate was waiting for day. and when day came he proposed to snap hla Jawa al>ove and l>elow n bark that | was trying to get through the atralt 1 without a pilot and waa consequently ' laying up nights. It may he supposed that those aboard the said bark, the Pelican, were slumbering, inuocvut of danger. By no means. Captain Kurt bad seen the Seal in ea crawling along the surface of the water the evening liefore and suspected her. Had she been recog nised for a pirate all on t>oard the bark might have taken to tae boats during the night. They certainly would have done so. for the captuin'a daugh ter, the bride of hla second officer, was with him on her wedding trip. Cap tain Burt decided to send this second otfWr In charge of four men In the dingey ten miles up the Mralt to a | United States gunboat with n request that the stranger be investigated. That th? captain regarded the mission an Important oue Is manifest from his sending the young husband, who would hold the safety of his bride of para mount Importance. Wheu day came the bark was shut in by a fog But Dixon had noted her position l>y the compass the uigbt be fore and. getting up her anchor, pro posed to feel for lier. Captain Burt had suffered a night of anxiety, and the more he thought of the schooner the more he believed that she was piratic ally inclined. Wheu he found the man tle of fog thrown oAer hi? vessel he gav? orders that not a sound should **rv* as a guide to auy oue trying to ? Itsoiver her whereabouts. AN'Ut elgbt bells in toe morning <us eaptaln was standing on tie quarter dm k. astern, and heard vol<**a and tlie sound of oars approaching. They >.rcw more distinct. aud present )? Crocky's voice Ntruck the thick air, a volley of cettis aud orders, together with nutfl clwit cefereriiv to what he was about, tc convince Captain Burt t>nt he ?ai twlut; hunted for by a plra'e.

The captain In agony fvr he knew the pirates would return i-?newed hi* caution to all al>oard bis vessel to maintain absolute silence, then watted for the neit time the pirate would pas* h*nv Not having a gun aboa-tl. defense would be useless, lie did not have to wait loug, when Oroeky. disgusted at having missed his object. j/ulled l*ck nearly over the same tracV this time pa**lng the I Kirk's stern opsin and a trifle nearer. Every soul r board the PeH<-*n now knew that a pirate w?j pasting back and forth In the fog and If their vessel was discovered all wu'ild have to walk the plank. As the schooner went by they stood huddled together amidships listening to < 'rocky Dixon's blood curdling language, not during to whls|>er. Fortunately once more be missed them. When Crocky came back he put hi* schooner off a few points and passed far beyond the Pelican's bow It was lucky that he did so. for by this time the fog had perceptibly thinned. Dixon had slipped his cable on start ing out to find the Pelican, and when ke pulled back the second time, though he missed the bark again, he ran on to the cable buoy. This was a great ad vantage. Having the compass direc tion. he made another effort. Those on board the Pelican when they beard him coming knew by the sound that he would surely strike them. Then It oc curred to Captain Burt that there was a tide In the strait, which was then running In. and. though be knew the pirates would hear the cable slide through the hawse pipe, he gave onlers to have It slipped. Dixon the moment he beard the sound knew well enough what the captain was about and. cal culating on the tide, tnrned her nose slightly in a curve. On came the pirate, following the exact direction of the drifting Pelican. Captain Burt stepped down from the quarter deck and took hi* daughter In his arms, convulsed with agony. All hope was gone. Suddenly every one started. Close by sounded a steam whistle. As suddenly the sound of oars ceased. The whistle sounded again, and at a signal from Captain Burt every one on board the bark set up a united shout. This was answered immediately by three short whistles. An hour later a puff of wind blew ?way the fog. Half a mile from thi Pelican was the United States gunitoaf Perry. Just rounding a point se?eu of eight miles distant was the pirate ?Chooser. M.

Phone 90 A BRIEF BUT STIRRING COURTSHIP [OrlgtnaL] ? Elite Marcel was a Louisiana Creole. Her fatbsr and mother were pious peo ple and Insisted on Ellse maintaining the same rigorous notions tbat gov erened them. Sbe was not permitted to dance, and she must keep all the fust days and do penance for the illgbtest Infraction of church rule*. Henry Soulard, the sou of a neigh l>orlug planter, met Ellse ouo .evening at a party and was captivated by her aval face, olive complexion, black eyes and the long cable of hair reaching nearly to her heels. He was a manly young fellow, without anything mean or selfish about him. He asked Ellse to dance, but sbe declined, explaining that her parents forbade dancing and If she did so and they beard of It she would hare to suffer. Henry looked disappointed, but declared that be would not bring trouble upon her for a world. Whereupon Ellse was seised with a desire to Buffer for his pleasure and Insisted on dancing with bim. When he found it Impossible to dis suade her, he consented, and they danced together often during the rest of the evening. When Ellse went home, she told her mother what she had done. Instead of making her do the usual penances Mme. Marcel simply, forbade her ever again to speak a word with Henry Soulan). The Wxt time Henry saw Ellse he was on horseback and Ellse was ahead of him driving her pony. A man was riding benlde her, talking to her, and it was plalu tbat Ellse was offended, for ?he answered never a word. When Henry drew near, be saw that the of fender was Jean Gaspard. a young man who had lately Inherited a planta tion. on which he lived a by no means exemplary life. As soon as Henry came up Ellse, with flashing eyes and burn ing cheeks, told him she desired that M. Oiupard would ride on and leave her alone. Henry rode up to her tor mentor and Cut him with his riding whip, theu cutting Oaspard's horse, a high mettled l?east, it shot on, carrying the rider far away. mat arternoon a menu or uasparu * waited on Heury bearing a challenge. In that day dueling was common In the south, and Henry could not have declined to tight without meeting con 1 wojuenoe* as serious as fighting. Tbf next morning the two men met with ?~barp pointed foils. Though Henry was the better fencer he was so indignant with his antagonist that be was under cautious. He received a flesh wound la the side. This ended the combat. The meeting soon became common talk in the neighborhood, but as the people were not averse to dueling there were no arrests. M. and Mme. Marcel uot only heard of the affair, but of its cause. Klise. learning that Heury bad been wouudcd. took her pony cart and drove to her father's plantation. She found him lying on a wicker coucb on the veranda. Though they had seen each other but twice before, the episode in whicb Henry had defended her and afterward risked his life and was wounded on her account was quite enough to draw them to a climax. Not a wonl was spoken before Heury had clasped her and she "had wound her arms about bis ueck. When they sepa lated. they were betrothed. It was a great shock to Mme. Marcel when Ellse drove home and told her that she was engaged to the man with whom she had danced and who had fought a duel for her. "Mon Dieu," exclaimed the mother? "that 1 should have a child to love one who has tried to kill another! Our pro tecting* saints surely will letue us a prey to the devil. Go to your room, wicked child, and if you ever again meet or speak to this would be mur derer you must leave this house and your poor father and me that you may not Jeopardize our Immortal souls." Ellse's love and respect for her moth er forbade her disobeying, and she went to her room, where her meals were sent to her for three days. Then she was told to go to confession. She promised her mother that she would speak to no one but the priest. The promise was sacredly kept, and when she returned she went at once to ber room. For a week Bhe remained day and night there, seeing no one. ber meals brought to her. Then one morn ing she was called down into the great hall which served as a living room. There stood Father I>e Bleek, the par ish priest, and there sat her mother on the old mahogany and haircloth sofa. "Embrace your daughter," said the old man kindly. "Are you sure, father, that there will be no contamination?" "There Is no sin to contamination. Whatever of sin there may be, If any, would pertain to the young man. But there Is no sin in defense. Has not our church found her defender in all gen erations since she was planted on tarth? Are you not presumptuous to set up your interpretations of our doc trines." "Forgive me, father." Ellse stood over her mother and at this point bent down and the two were clasped In each other's arms. When they looked up the priest had with drawn. Ellse in a flutter of excitement and Joy wrote the words, "Come when you are able." and sent tbem to Henry. He bad been forbidden by his surgeon to walk or drive for another week, but be bad no sooner read Ellse's uote than he ordered a horse and wagon to be got ready and In ten minutes was 011 his way to the Marcel plantation. Ellse met him at the gate and supported bliu to the house, where M. and Mme Marcel received him. though the lattei could not refrain from crossing herself before she permitted hiui to touch hn baud.
