"Da cap'n he ban on der yob all right!" Aye, Captain Cowan, keeper of the light, has been on the Job, fair and foul weather, winter and sum mer, night and day, for 16 lone some years; and never a ship has poked her nose into old Tatooah in all that time. Now this is the song the Ta ' tonsil siren sings to passing ships I when the fog hangs low: First ( blast, five seconds; silence, 16 seconds; second blast, three sec . onds; silence, 37 seconds. We crept a zig-zag course, with . only the horn to guide us. Some i times it was strong; sometimes ; faint. Sometimes it came from Btarboard; sometimes on the port side. Drop Anchor in ('hip. Once we passed so close to a rock, so nearly submerged that only its jagged teeth showed be tween the waves, that our boat scraped against it. Now the voice of the siren was deafening. The sea wan breaking against rocks near at hand. Then Tatoosh loomed, high and ghoßtly in the fog, straight ahead. Our approach was on the west* ward side where there is a tiny cove, the only landing place. We (entered It, the walla of Tatoosh rising sheer on three sides, and dropped anchor. , Met by l.iul.t Keeper. ; A small boat came out to us. n armed by a young man in oil" skins. A bobbing lantern guide* us to the beach. The lantern was held by the veteran keeper of the light. -1*! "You heard the horn';" If asked as we stepped ashore. %9 "Sure!" my fisherman said. "It ban dam' Tick night. If w« not heard da horn, ay tank we go all way to China." . Captain Cowan led us up the long flight of steps which leads : to the top of the island. Later ■ that night—lt was far past mid- ' night when our talk ended—he i pridefully showed me the horn whose voice carries 20 miles. I Shows Them Hi* 1/^nn. , We climbed to the light, and he 1 showed me the wonderful lens i which in any but foggy weather « sends its warning 19 miles.

High up In his aerie, with the light ohining finitely againnt the enveloping fog, /md the horn bel lowing, he told me of hia life ami I discovered the inspiring cause of that vigilance which has roblted Tatooali of many a nieavl.
