Two weeks passed , in desultory fashion, with morning searches and afternoons looking over the hot blue sea before and the lagoon be hind, that lay like a spot of tarnished silver showing through the scrawny palms. Carew was careless and one morning It hap pened. The lobster-like claws of the scorpion nipped and Carew went off balance. The nip was not dangerous, but the sprawl threw him into line for the stinging tail of the holder of venom that meant death death unless heroic measures were adopted. Whatever else Carew wa he was not a coward. The report of Keenan and all in formation that can be gathered shows he acted with Spartan courage but again he was careless. The small spot in the calf of the ieg where the poison entered was bared by him and a common Jackknife brought Into play. Quickly Carew cut at the place, and slashed until there was a free flow from a wound three inches long. He bound up the leg with strips of clothing and hobbled back to his hut." Keenan saw him and hurried to his assistance. Carew was made comfortable in a bunk, and weltered cheerfully through the afternoon, be lieving he bad saved himself. Copious doses of brandy muddled his senses and Keenen returned to his post.

If I do be come crazy ard there is no hope, I depend on you to" and he nodded significantly toward his re volver. Keenan did not answer. Somewhere out on the Caribbean he knew the Santa Marta was plough ing along, so ho plied the wireless unceasingly. The answer came about nine o'clock in the morning from the Santa Marta, which reported her position exactly 420 miles to the soitheast Rapid exchanges brought a refusal to turn to Swan island. The ship's surgeon. Dr. W. S. Irwin, standing beside the wireless, said it would be use less. And the nvessage was sent to Keenan, who dared not look at khe doomed young man. That seemed to to be the end for a moment Then there came ilnew sputtering in the receiver.

"A lot of cutting According to direction and your man is saved." make it clean. More brandy was served to niia by the wireless man and everything' was ready for the operation. A native boy who acted as Herman's helper ran after articles as directed. By turning to the page he had been directed Keenan found a chart of the leg. "Ready," he flashed to Dr. Irwin. The first direction came, he repeated it back and it was verified, so there could be no mistake.' Each part of the lancing was gone over carefully under repeated instructions. Meantime the Santa Marta continued to plunge along on the blue Ca ribbean. And when the cutting was over there cama the query from the ship to shore: "Have you any tar?" Keenan bad, and the instruction came to boil it and pour it on the now clean wound. It was rough surgery, but the best thing under the cir cumstances. Carew fainted under it and was r vived. "Tell him he's safe now," came the wireless. The tourniquet was removed and the numbed leg, still horribly painful under the searing tar, was bandaged. "Got plenty of brandy?" asked the spark. "About the only thing we have," Keenan pound ed back. "Let him have enough to forget his troubles," ordered the surgeon, and the message was sent. Now by rights all should have been over with the saving of Carew. But there remained the one touch that will be a long time finding its dupli cate. The following day the young naturalist appear ed dragging himself along with a cane in defiance of orders. He stopped by the wireless man who bad taken his instrument out under the trees. "Forget it," he said when the other began to remonstrate. "I feel great. It's wonderful to know you're going to live after all. I want to thank that doctor." So Keenan raised the Santa Marta again and the surgeon was called to the wireless room. "Tell him I can't operate the key so it means anS thing," said Carew, "but if he will sit down at the instrument I'll make some dots with the thing and that will serve for the present. You know our hands will really touch when his has one key and I the other and the air between." And so it happened that through the air over the blue Caribbean there passed sundry dots that meant nothing and everything. Different Nationalities Have Own j Particular Version. Rtason Is Ascribed to Contemptuous Indifference to Things Foreign That Exist More or Leas In Every Land on the Globe. Florence, Italy The city we and the English call "Florence" is by Italians called Fiorenia. Tfce name of the British capital is. to the French, Londres, and to the Italians, Londra. By English-speaking peoples the Aus trian capital Is referred to ae Vif niia. whereas the Austrians spell it Wifrn. In addition to these differences there may be cited Dunkirk and Dunkerque, Cologne and Koln. The Hague and La Have, Geneva and Genf. ' What Is the reason for these differ ences? Is it to be sought in philologi cal influences alone, or is it to be found in that contemptuous indiffer ence with reference to things foreign that exists more or less in every land? In the first-mentioned case, it has been pointed out that, had the word "London" existed at the time the French word "Londres" came into use, the French would probably have adopt ed the English form. But, the French contend, no "London" name was in use when 'Londres-' was coined. The Latin name whereby the British town first became known elsewhere was Londlnium. The locative case form of this noun (the one most often used in colloquial style) was Londini. It fol lowed that. In the continuous inter change of words and their develop ment into modern speech, Londini very easily became Ixndri in the speech of the Frenchmen. Then, as "i" is an Indication of a Latin plural, a new difficulty arose. When Londini was accepted by the French it was for some time treated, quite mistakenly, just as a French plural noun would be and spelled accordingly Londres. Londres made its way from France to GAS. I1GESI1 Pape's Diapepsin fixes sick, sour, gassy stomachs in five minutes. In a Florenlc Cloister. Italy. As the last two letters were silent, the Italians rejected them, re placing them by the favorite unaccent ed final vowel of their tongue, "a" with the result tflat the name of the British capital became Londra. Vienna in English and Italian and Vienna in Spanish are simply relics of the mediaeval days, when Latin was the universal tongue of the learned, and the French Vienne is but a slight variation of Vienna. Geneva may be explained in the same way. The nations have taken great liber ties with the name of the Dutch capV tal Gravenhage. For the English The Hague and the French La Haye we have cause to be grateful. The Spanish shortened the cumbersome Dutch name into Haja; the Italians converted it into Aja; and even the Germans, cousins, in a sort, to the Hol landers, boiled it down into Haag. THE SURPRISE.
