withstood soido terrible punish
ments, but never bad he undertaken
a task calling for greater courage aud
power of endurance thau the ouu he
had this night voluntarily assumed.
Overwhelmed again and agalu by tbo
waves, each time he emerged with the
child tight against his breast. Half
strangled, he continued to tight ou.
'But at length even his dogged ob
stinacy aud determination began to
flag? lie felt his strength going, when,
raising his eyes, ho saw one of tbo
small craft from tbo lost vessel bear
ing directly down upon blrn.
The sight inspired new energy and
effort. Nearer, uearer, she drew; now
sho was but a few yards uway. Then
suddenly the 'sheet of tho lifeboat
went out, and the little sail fluttered
like a mad thing, while tho men bent
-with might and main over their ash
handles In tho endeavor to obey tho
commands of the chief mate in the
stern. But despite skill aud strength
she was not easy to steer. Once sho
nearly capsized: then eager hands
reached over the side. The convict
held up the, child. A voice, tho police
agent's, called out that they bad her,
and then the tnato broke in with
.harsh, warning yells.
I "Pull port, quick, or wo'ro over!"
'And at onco tho outrcachlug arms re
turned quickly 'to their tusk. As the
child was drawn in ours dragged and
tugged. The lifeboat came slowly
about, shipping several barrels of
water. At the same time some one
made the loosened sheet tint, tho can
ivas caught tho gusjt, and the craft
gained sufficient headway to enable
her to run over and not be run down
by the seas. As she careened and
plunged, racing down a frothing durk
billow, the convict, relieved of his
iburden, clung to the lower gunwale.
By a desperate effort he drew him
self up, when a face vaguely remem
ibered as part of u bad dream looked
Into his with a flash of surprise.
'Eh? GImmo a hand." ,
' The asked for hand swept suddenly
.under the ono grasping the side of tbo
;boat and shot up sharply. In the
darkness aud confusion no ono saw the
act. The convict (disappeared, but his
thalf articulate curses followed.
"The fellow's let go," muttered Lord
Itonsdale, with a shiver,
At tho steering oar tho chief mate,
'hearing the cries of the man, cast a
swift glance over his shoulder and hes
itated. To bring the boat, half filled

sort bad well nigh ended in their all

anyhow," he told himself and drove on.
"lie's done me done me!" the con

he thought and looked despairingly at
the sky. "Ain't never! Tbo slob!"
'And 'with a flood of almost sobbing
Invective ho let himself go.

hatred that had blinded hltu to all

dnauaged to reach tho edgo of the

himself up on ,tbo floating timber.

he sank Into unconsciousness.

over tbo ocean. Far away a dark
fringe broke tho sea lino a suggestion
of foliage au island or a mirage!

His garments wore torn. His hair
hung over his brow. Ho shook his
arms at tho Island this phantasy, this
vain, empty vision. Ho regarded it
now as soma savage creature might a
bono just out of Its reach. From his
lips vllo words fell to be suddenly
bushed. Between blm and what ho
gazed at along the range of vision an
object on ono of the projecting timbers
caught his eye. It was very small, but
it gleamed Hko a spark sprung from
the embers of tbo dawn.
"The dliky bird!" His dried lips
tried to laugh. "Ef it ain't the dicky
bird!" Tho bird looked at him. "Ef
that doesn't beat" But ho could not
think what It "beat" The bird cock
ed its head. "Ain't you afeared o'

I'm dashed!" said tho man and after
this mild expression of his feeling?
forgot to curse again.
Toward noon tho man began to suf
fer mord acutely from thirsty and,
drawing out a bailor's oilskin pouch,
one of the few possessions ho bad
been allowed by the police to retain,
ho took from It a piece of tobacco,
which ho began to chow At tho same
time ho eyed tho rest of the contents
half a ship's biscuit, some matches
and a mariner's thimble. Tho biscuit
he broko and threw a few crumbs
where the timbers were dry, near the
bird. For a long time It looked at the
tiny white morsels, but, finally con
quering shyness, hopped from its perch
and tentatively approached the ban
quet. Hours went by. The man
chewed and tho bird pecked.
That uight it rained in real, tropical
earnest, and ho mado a water vessel
of his shoe, drank many times, ato a
few mouthfuls of biscuit and then
placed the filled receptacle where he
had thrown the crumbs. As ho did
so bo found himself wondering if the
dawn would reveal bis little feathered
shipmate or whether it had been swept
away by the violence of tho rain. Tho
early .shafts of day showed him the
bird on its perch. It had apparently
found shelter from the heavy down
pour beneath some outjuttlng timber
and seemed no worse for the experi
ence. The man's second glance was
In the direction of the island. What
he saw brought a sudden exclamation
to his lips. The land certainly seemed
much nearer. Some current was
sweeping them toward it slowly but
Irresistibly. The Frisco ret swore
joyfully. His eyes shone. "I may do
him yet!" he muttered. The bird chirp
ed. He looked nt it. "Breakfast, eh?"
ho said and tossed a few more crumbs
near the shoe. '
Tho second day he brooded n great
deal. Tho sharper pangs of hunger
nssalled him. and he grew desperate
ly impatient, the distance to the Island
decreased so gradually.
Hardly knowing what be did, he
drew forth tho last little bit of the
biscuit, ground it .between his teeth
and greedily swallowed it The act
seemed to sober him. He- raised his
big hand to his brow and looked at

Nearby tall and stately trees nodded
at him. Close at hand a great crab
regarded him with reflectlvo interest,

The man tore It to bits ate it like the
famished animal he was.
For a week nothing of moment In
terrupted the even tenor of his ex
istence. He led the life of a savage
and found it to his liking, pounced
upon turtles and cooked them, kept
his firo going because he had but 'few
matches. One day a box was washed
ashore, a message from the civilized
centers to the field of primitive man!
On its cover were the words. "Via
Sailing Vessel Lord Nelfcon." followed
by tho address. The convict pried th
boards apart and gave a shout. Rum,

was tossed off, tho empty shells flung
aside to the daisies. At length the
day came when only two bottles re
mained in the case, ono full pair, sole
survivors of tho lot. The man took
them out, set them up and regarded
them; a sense of Impending disaster,
of imminent tragedy, shivered tliruugh
his dulled consciousness. He reached
for tho bottles and fondled them,
started to knock the head from one
and put 'It down. Resisting desire, he
told himself he would have a look at
tho beach; the ocean had generously
cast one box of well primed bottles at
his feet; perhaps It would repeat its
hospitable action and make him once
more tho recipient of Its bounty. The
