Felt He Had Known the Worst. Pat O'Shaunessy had been told by the doctor that he could live but a few hours, and his wife and assembled rel atives and friends asked him whether there was one last wish he would like to have gratified? "There is," said Pat. "I'd like to hear the village band play once again." Accordingly the Village band gathered. When at last It had played, "Say Au Revoir But Not Good-by," and had taken its own de parture, Mrs. O'Shaunessy, kneeling at her husband's bedside, asked: "Can ye die aisy now, Pat?" "Yis," replied Pat. "I can die aisy now. Hell has nothing worse than that."

CHAPTER VI^(CentinuedO "Cleaning my pipe. Go on and tleep your time's not up yet" "What's o'clock?" Appleyard mumbled something in coherent as he stepped out on deck and Coast -turned over and slept •gain. It seemed 'hours later when he found himself -abruptly -wide awake, in a tremor of panic anxiety bred of :a fancy 'that a human voice- had -cried out in -mortal -terror, -somewhere within 'his hearing. He started up, (in formed by that sixth sense we call In tution that conditions abroad the Echo 'had changed radically since the last time he had fallen asleep and It seemed no more than -a second from the moment his eyes ^opened until he 'found 'himself in the cockpit, gaz ing daaedly into -the -inscrutable heart of the fog. At first, to Ills 'confusion, he could eee nothing amiss. The Echo was rid tbg ra a }uiet tide and an even keel, with scareely any peroeptible motion. The encompassing darkness was in tense, unfathomable, profound only tbe forward light showed dim halo of yellow opalescence near the mast head. and the faint glow from the cabin lamp quivered on slowly swirl ing convolutions, of dense white va por, like smoke. The port and star bowl lights had been extinguished, as they should be when a vessel comes to anchor. What, then had interrupted his slumbers? He turned with a question shaping on his lips. Appleyard was nowhere visible. Coast required some minutes before he was convinced of the fact of the little man's disappearance. But the cabin proved as empty as the cock pit, and the tender was gone. The cabin chronometer chimed the hour of four in the morning. As the echoes died, as though they had evoked the genius of that place, a strange and dreadful cry rent the silence, sounding shrill across the wa ters. yet as if coming from a great listanca CHAPTER VII. Some moments elapsed, Coast's every nerve and sense upon the rack. Tbough be heard it no more, still that pry rang in bis head, and he could but wait, smitten dumb and motionless, feeling his chilled flesh crawl, en thralled by fearsome shapes con jured up by an imagination striving vainly to account for what had hap pened—wait (it seemed) intermin ably for what he hardly knew or guessed, unless It were for a repeti tion or some explanation of that in explicable cry. He received neither. His straining faculties detected none but familiar hoises. Insensibly he grew more calm. So silent was the world, seemingly so saturated with the spirit of brooding peace, that he was tempted to be lieve he had dreamed that first shriek, to which he had wakened, and that tha second was but an echo of it in his brain: some hideous trick of Aerves, a sort of waking hallucination. And yet Appleyard? What of him? Was there any connection to be traced, be tween his mysterious disappearance from the Echo and that weird, un ,earthly scream? Was there really -land near, and had the little man found It only to become the victim of some frightful, nameless peril? Could that have been his voice, calling for help .? And in what dread ex tremity .? There was nothing he could do, no way to reach the man. The tender fone, the shore Invisible—and who should say how far distant?

A number of black dots along its northern shore seemed to indicate buildings—but Appleyard had distinct ty said "uninhabited." ir* Coast turned out the lamp and went back to the deok. There was nothing to be seen, noth ing to do. He fidgeted. Then out of the confusion of his temper, in which ennui etalked In sin gular companionship with perturba tion, he chanced upon an odd-end of thought, one of those stray bits of in formation, mostly culled from desul tory reading, that clutter the back of every man's brain. He happened to remember hearing, some time, some where, that fog rare ly clings to the surface of moving wa ter that, by putting one's vision upon a plane almost horizontal with the water, it is ordinarily possible to see for some distance roundabout. "There may be something in it No harm to try." Forthwith he scrambled out upon tbe stern, from which, after some in tricate maneuvering and by dint of considerable physical Ingenuity, he managed to suspend himself, at peril of a ducking, with his head near the water. He was promptly justified of his pains the theory proved itself—in that one instance at least between the slowly undulant floor, glassy and colorless, and the ragged fringe of the mist curtain, he discovered a definite space. Directly astern and, roughly, some forty feet away, a shelving stretch of pebbly beach, softly lapped by low voiced ripples, shut in tbe view. The Echo's tender, drawn up beyond the water's edge, bisected it "Good," said Coast, abstracted, re covering from his constrained posi tion. Curiosity gripped him strongly, cau tion contending vainly he knew quite well that he would never bide content until be bad probed for the cause and source and solved the mystery of that wild cry in the night just gone. Moreover, he felt in a measure re sponsible for Appleyard. Surely there must be some strange reason for his protracted absence. Abandoning: himself,' deaf to the counsels of. prudence, Coaat rose and stripped off his clothing. He let himself gently Into the water (fearing to dive beeause he did not know, Its d«pth) and, found It warm wanner eanUously. uslng Uw a toned -but'slle^##-*^:, onlt Mes acntehed and bndsed his mw retarnedtotbetender, and addled but to. tbe Scho. rblnsh with tpok the pmall boat beak to the '4re*.- It1qp ai$ .. to li enterprtab tM'ftrifr bt %Klch stubbornly refused to debate, set eC to reconnolter along the watsr*s iidfe, feeling his way.

Still no sign of Appleyard. He must have tramped, at a rude guess, several hundred yards before he discovered either'a. break In Uie bluff or aP7 change in the general configuration of thei shore. Ultimate ly, however, the one fell away In land and the other widened. A moment later he came upon a small catboat careenbd above high tide mark, with a sapling Wound in its starboard side, forward and below the water-line. 8he lay stern to the water. Taking the point of her stem as his guide, Coast turned inland again, on a line "Good God!" He Cried Aloud. "What—" as straight as possible considering the slanting lay of the land and the impossibility of seeing anything be yond a radius of a few feet. He bad not gone far upon this tack before be stumbled upon a path of hardpacked earth, obviously ,made by human feet. Then he found him self mounting a rather steep grade, and in another moment was face to face with a plain weather-boarded wall of a wooden building. There were no windows that he could discover on tills side, and though he listened keenly he heard np sounds from witbin. Other buildings presented them selves successively, as like as peas to one another and to the first he had encountered: all peopled exclusively by tbe seven bowling devils of deso lation and their attendant court of rats—or so be surmised from sundry sounds of scurryings and squeaks. He gathered that he was threading a rude sort of street, fringed on one side—to seaward—with the abandoned dwellings of what had apparently been a small fishing community. "No Man's Land indeed.!" he com mented. "Certainly'lives up to the name, even if It's some place else. It begins to look as if I'd drawn a blank. a KIM But Appleyard .?"
