Ho is certainly an indivldu alial of the. most prouotineed type. Not only that, but he is very ieflfly. There is no congeniality between him ami the rest of the HUB aboard ship. His tremendous virility and mental strength wall him apart.

Concerning his own rages, I am convinced that they are not real, that they are sometimes experiments, but tlint in Ibe main they are the habits of a pose or attiude be has seen fit i to take toward his fellowmen. I j know, with the possible exception I of the Incident of the dead mate, J that I have not seen htm really ■ngry; nor do I wish ever to seei him in a genuine rage, when all the force of him Is called Into play. While on the question of vagar ies, I shall tell what befell Thomas Mugridge In the cabin, and at the| same time complete an Incident upon which I have already touch ed once or twice. The twelve o'clock dinner was over, one day, and I bad Just finished putting the cabin in order, when Wolf Larsen and Thomas Mugrldge de scended the companion stairs. Though the cook had a cubby hole of a stateroom opening off from the cabin, In the cabin it self he bad never dared to linger: or to be seen, and he flitted to and fro, once or twice a day, like a timid spectre, "So you know how to play! 'Nap,'" Wolf Larsen was saying | In a pleased sort of voice. "I; might have guessed an English man would know. I learned It myself In English ships." Thomas Mugrldge was beside himself, a blithering imbecile, so pleased was be at chumming thus with the captain. The little airs he put on and the painful striv ing to assume the easy carriage of a man born to a dignified place In life would have been sickening had they not been ludicrous. He quite ignored my presence, though I credited him with being simply, unable to see me. His pale,, wishy-washy eyes were swimming like lazy summer seas, though what blissful visions they beheld were beyond my Imagination. 'i let the cards, Hump," Wolf Larsen ordered, as they took seats at the table. "And bring out the oigars and the whiskey you'll find in tn.v berth." I returned with the articles In tinus to hear the Cockney hinting broadly that there was a mystery about him, that he might be a gentleman's son gone wrong or something or other; also, that he WW a remittance man and was paid to keep away from England —"p'yed 'ansomely, sir," was the Woj# he put It; "p'yed 'ansomely to sling my ook an' keep slingin' X T had brought the customary liquor glasseß, but Wolf Larsen fro* iieil. shook his head, and sig naled with his hands for me to bring the tumblers. These he filled two-thirds full with undilut ed whisky — "a gentleman's drink," quoth Thomas Mugridge, —and they clinked their glasses to the glorious game of "Nap," lighted cigars, and fell to shuf fling and dealing the cards. They played for money. They Increased the amounts of the bets. They drank whisky, they drank It peat, and I fetched more. I do not know whether Wolf Larsen cheated er not, —a thing he was' thoroughly capable of dulsg,- but he won steadily. The" ttWk insde repeated journeys to his trunk for money. Eiit-h lime he performed the journey with great er swagger, but he never brought more than a few dollars at a time. He grew maudlin, familiar, could hardly ace the cards or sit up right. As a preliminary to an other journey to his bunk, hs hooked Wolf t<araen's buttonhole •vit b a greasy forefinger and vacu ously proclaimed and reiterated, "I got money. 1 got money, I tell yer, an' I'm a gentleman's son." Wolf Larsen was unaffected by the drink, yet he drank glass for glass, and if anythlug his glasses were fuller. There was no change lv him. He did not appear even amused at the other's antics. In the end, with loud protesta tions that he could lose like s gen tleman, the cook's last money wus staked on the game and lost. Whereupon he leaned his head on his hands and wept. Wolf Larsen looked curiously at htm. as though about to probe and vivisect him, theu changed his mind, as from the foregone conclusion that there wus nothing there to probe. "Hump," he said to me, elabor ately polite, "kindly take Mr. Mugridge's arm and help him up on deck. He Is not feeling very well." "And tell Johnson to douse him with a few buckets of salt water," he added, In a lower tone for my egr alone. I left Mr. Mugrldge on deck, in the hands of v couple of grinning sailors who had been told off for the purpose. Mr. Mugrldge was sleepily spluttering that he was a gentleman's son. But as 1 de scended the companion stairs to clear the table I heard him shriek as the first bucket of water struck him. I Continued Tomorrow.)
