"The poor lad is dying from lack of a doctor,” said old Tom, who knelt be side Hislop, handling his wounds with the tenderness of a woman; "and if the wholot British navy hove in sight, we haven’t a rag of bunting to shake out as a signal, since that rascally pica roon, the Cubano, has cast every color and signal overboard.” "Well, Tom, he shan’t die this bout,’" said Ned Carlton, hopefully. "Let us tie up his wounds as best we can, to belay the bleeding, and give him some thing as a reviver.” "It’s a blessing his old mother In Scotland don’t see all this,” added rough Tom Lambourne, with a tear in his eye; "poor Marc Hislop is her only support, and a sister’s, too.” I thought now, with compunction, how often his theories and pedantry had bored me, and I resolved to be unremitting in my care of him. The united medical skill of those honest souls, our crew, was very small; however, the wounds were carefully washed in clean water; their best shirts were torn into bandages or fold ed Into pads to stop the bleeding; and in this they were quite successful. A beaker of New England rum was hoisted out of the forehold, and its head was instantly started. The liquor was very redolent of treacle, but a glass of it mixed with water —the read iest stimulant that occurred to the minds of the seamen—was poured be tween the parched lips of the sufferer, who at last slept, in the pleasant at mosphere formed by the awning which shaded him from the fierce sun, and in the breeze that whistled past the bows as the Eugenie still bore on her new course, close hauled, with all her fore-and-aft canvas set, and the white, glittering spray flying over her cat-heads and dolphin striker. The terrible Cubano still kept pos session of the cabin. His two six-bar reled revolvers gave him twelve shots, and we were but nine in all, as the captain, Roberts, and Will White had already perished by his hand, and Hyslop, to all appearances, was dy ing; thus Antonio kept us all in sub jection by his weapons, just as half a dozen well-armed soldiers may con trol a mob of thousands. So passed the night; the crew group ed forward, full of schemes for venge ance, and he aft, full of triumph, ferocity and cognac. Next morning I was on the quarter deck, and when day broke I became aware, by a splashing sound astern, that we were towing something in the dead water of the brig’s wake. On looking over the taffrail, what were my emotions on beholding the body of my kind frien^— our good and hospi table captain—towed by the neck at the end of a line! Around the poor corpse, which was in ita nightdress, the green waves danced merrily in the golden light of the morning sun that was now beam ing over the sea, "refreshing the dis tant shores and reviving all but him.” Antonio in tho night had cast it from one of the cabin windows on the port side of the rudder-case, and through that aperture the line to which it was attached was now run. By the smoke of a cigar, which as cended to the taffrail at times, I dis covered that the atrocious Cuban was sitting at the open cabin window be low me, watching and waiting to see the body devoured by the sharks; and I knew that he would shoot all who at tempted to cross his purpose or who came within reach of his pistol. This prevented any man from lowering himself over the stern, either to haul In the line or cut It adrift. "Demonio!” wo heard him exclaim, when by a sudden lurch of the ship tho line parted and the poor corpse went rolling and surging to leeward. "There he goes, and God bless him, although he’s cut adrift without a prayer or a sailor’s winding-sheet,” said Tom Lambourne, taking off bis hat, as the body bobbed like a fish erman's float on the waves for a little space and then disappeared in the long, white track made by the Eugenie through the dark apple-green of the morning sea. All the stories I had heard or read of Spanish revenge Beemed eclipsed by the atrocities of this fiendish Cubano. CHAPTER XXIII. The Requital. Three days and nights passed with out finding us able to surprise or dis lodge the demon who was in posses sion of the cabin; without our knowing where tho ship was driving or drift ing to, and without a sail appearing. A man-of-war belonging to any coun try we should have hailed as a pro lecfor; but on the wide waters of the Southern Atlantic ships are few and far .between. Hyslop rallied a little and wan re moved into one 6t the forecgstle berths. He could* tell us only that no had been surprised when asleep, und hud freon itobbed again and again—that he bo ertme Insensible and remembered noth ing* more. His distress was great when we related tho story o? the captain's fate, the death of \VJII White, and that their destroyer was still In possession of the ship and tho arbiter of all our lives. He writhed on his bed of pain and sighed bitterly on finding how stiff und ■ore, how weak anil almost blind he had become by lops of blood; but a crisis was now at hand with our Cu bano. The evening of the fourth day after we had saved Hyslop found the brig still lying on a westerly course; but whether in the latitude of Cape San Roque or of the Rio Grande, we knew not; and. I suppose, it was all the same to Antonio. I was at the wheel. The sunset was gorgeously beautiful. The Eugenie was running with both tacks aft; and un der the arched leech of her courses I could Bee the blood-red disk of the sun right ahead settling in the waves, which shone in all the colors of the dying dolphin; while against the flam ing orb the black outline of the masts, the figure-head and the taper end of the jlbboom, with its cap, guys and gear, were clearly and distinctly defined. The waves ahead rose and fell be tween me and the sun, as slowly and imperceptibly he sank at the flaming horizon, from a quarter circle to a segment; then the last vestige of that also disappeared, but the lingering rays of his glory played upward on the light clouds that floated above. Even they paled away and died out, and twilight stole over the sea, which changed from gold to a transparent blue. With the increasing twilight came a change of wind, and before it a great bank of cloud rolled from the horizon on our starboard bow. Under its shad ow the sea was darkened and its brok en water flecked with white. Tho new breeze came first upon our quarter, then rapidly it was abeam and three great albatrosses were seen to whip the sea with their wings, while a whole shoal of brown porpoises surged past our bows, plunging joyously from wave to wave. Tucks and braces were instantly manned and the sails were trimmed anew for our desultory course. "Sail ho —to windward!" said one of the crew, In a low but excited voice, lest the sound might reach the cabin; and as the dense hank of purple clouds opened a large bark came out of it, and her form became more and more defined as she left the vapor astern. She was going free —that is, with her head further off the wind than close hauled —and had a press of snow-white canvas, which shone in the last light of the west. "She is four miles off.” said Carlton. "We must signal her,” added Lam bourne. * "With what?” asked Carlton, In the same sharp but low voice; "every col or is overboard.” "Anything will do—a blue shirt at the foremast head; quick!—the sky will be quite dark in ten minutes. Run it up in a ball with a slipping loop, man-o’-war fashion,” said Lambourne, in a loud whisper; "get ready a ship’s lantern some of you, for the night darkens so fast that we shall scarcely bo visible when she is abeam of us. Ned, get into the fore-channel and wave the light as a signal that we want a boat.” These orders were rapidly obeyed and preparations made to throw the brig in the wind. While one man has tily got the lantern from a little round house, in which certain stores and tools were kept on deck; Ned Carlton pulled off his shirt, and was in the act of binding it to the signal hal yards, when the Spaniard, whose quick ears detected some commotion, sprang on deck, armed as usual. On seeing Carlton busy with the hal yards he looked round, caught sight of the ship, which was running with the white foam boiling under her fore foot, and thus in a moment divined what we were about. Muttering a terrible imprecation in Spanish lie fired at Carlton, but missed him as before, and shot dead a poor apprentice who was close by. " ’Tarnal thunder, flesh and blood can’t heart this!” shouted Tom Lam bourne, whose fury was boundless, and who snatched up a capstan-bar. "Bear down on him all hands; there is neith er sea law no land law can help us here!” Snatching whatever came nearest to hand, we all rushed upon the Cubano, who stood boldly at bay, and keeping the binnacle between us and him. fired over it five or six shots from his re volver with terrible rapidity; but so unsteady had lilh hand become in con sequence of his free potations below, that every bullet missed, though one cut the knuckles of Tom Lambourne's right hand, and another tore away the rim of my straw hut. Ho drew a second revolver from his. sash, but Lambourne, by one lucky blow with the capstan-bar, knocked it out of his hand. It went twenty feet into the air and fell over.bourd. Quick as lightning Antonio placed the other In his breast, drew his knife, stooped Ills heud. and darting through us like an cel, gnvo Carlton a gash in the thigh as he pussed. He then made for the main rigging, and sprang on the bulwark, no doubt with the intention of running up aloft to Homo secure perch, where ho reload his remaining pistol, and shoot us all down at leisure; but ho missed hts hold of the rattllns, and fell over board! Thero was a shout of furolus Joy. "The sea will rqb the gallows of its due!!’ said Carlton; “but ho’ll be shark’s meat, unywny.” Btft Antonio wo* not gone yet, for in falling he caught pne of the lower studylug-sail booms, and clutched it with deadly tenacity, for he knew that If ’ once waa -fairly ..launched into .the ocean his fate would be Bealed. “Is face was pale with combined foor and fury; his black eyes blazed with the fire of hatred; the perspiration oozed in drops from his temples. Tom Lambourne sprang forward to beat off his fingers; but at that moment the boom, a slender spar, broke from its lashings alongside, and swung out at a right angle from the brig, with the wretch at the extreme end of it, dang ling over the waves, like a herring at the point of a ramrod. Again and again he writhed his body upward in wild struggles to get astride the boom, or to reach it with his knees, but in vain! Instead of exciting pity his terrible situation drew forth a shout of de rision, mingled with expressions of ha tred and satisfaction, from the line of avenging faces that surveyed him over the bulwark. He hung thus for fully five minutes, for he was a power ful man, of great strength, muscle and bulk. I have no doubt this man was as brave as it is possible for a ruffian to be; but the prospect of an immediate death —a death, too, from which there was no escape—terrified him. His glance of hnte toward us turned to one of wild and earnest entreaty. “Mercy!—pardon!—in the name and for the love of the Almighty!” he ex claimed in Spanish, in a tone of in tense earnestness; but he was heard by us with fierce derision in that moment of just triumph and too long delayed vengeance. Twice the Eugenic gave a lee lurch, and each time the feet and knees of the wretched Cubano were immersed in the waves. Beneath him was the abyss of wa ter that rushed past the side of the brig. He panted rather than breathed, and through the dusk we could see how his aching hands turned white as his face, and that the points of his fingers were blood-red. His eyes grew wild and haggard as terror chilled his cow ard heart and agonized his soul; and yet through the surge the fleet craft flew on! Every moment increased the weight of his body and the weakness of his hands and wrists. At last it was evident that his pow ers of endurance could be no longer taxed; he uttered a half-smothered shriek, and closed his eyes £s he clung to that slender spar, and It swayed to and fro while the close-hauled brig flew on! The iron hook in the bulwark on which the studding-sail boom was hung gave way under the double weight of the spar and of his body. There was a shrill cry of despair, like the parting’ shriek of an evil spirit, or the skirl of the gusty blast, as the boom, and the wretch who clung to it in blind desperation, vanished into the black trough of the sea, and, like a cork or a reed, were swept amid the Ealt foam to leeward. The Eugenie rose like a duck upon the water, and, as If freed at that moment from a load of crime, seemed to fly forward with increased speed. ’Twas night now, and the ship which we had flr3t. seen upon our weather bow was a mile'astern and to leeward cf us.
