had been earned out. The schooner

“Ahoy." and Toni waved his arm
to the deck watch. "Send the mate

came over the side, unfastened the
skiff and rowed over.
"We'll have to make arrangements

up on the dock.
"Can you round up a dozen good

be asked. “Men you can trust."
The mate nodded and Tom con
tinued: “Post them on regular ship’s
watch or any way you choose. You
will be in charge and responsible for
preventing any. surprise attack. I
Jon’t think there’ll be one. but after
what has happened we are not tak
ing any chances."
“Better have them eat at the pal
ace. and t’tey can bunk either with
you on the schooner or at the boat
house." I said. “If you need blan
kets or anything else come - up and
get them."
Tom turned to the mate: “Keep a
man in the tower, one on the mam
floor *and one outside—and caution
that man not to stand close to any
corner of the building. Station the
others where ever you see fit"
"How about arms?" 1 asked. “We
only have two automatics. Holmes’
is jammed and will have to be fixed
before it Is serviceable.”
“Pauo has guns and ammunition.”
the mate said. "I’ll get those."
"We aren't expecting any trouble.”
Tom stated. "Rut we aren’t taking
any chances. Re sure those iron eef
doors are 'down on th«f boathouse' 1
astir dark. Those bosh® are our ’legs’
around here, and we cgjp’t afford to
hash.them cripplgd." ’
“*We don’t expect any trouble, but
as long as there Is any possibility
we will play safe." 1 declared. ‘"We
understand Livingston is a long wav
from here, but he might come back
and if he should happen te we’ll be
ready for him!"
“Livingston Is one bad man!”
Pinga said darkly.
We agreed with that sentiment
“Have the schooner In at the pier
and send a couple of boys up to the
palace Just before sundown,” Tom
ordered. "Have the tug rock’ and the
ropes on board."
The mate nodded understandingty.
We hag been In the Islands long

"What about Tino?” I asked Tom
aa we four strolled leisurely back
toward the palace. "Think be has

"We’B bring him down and throw

“Much better." Holmes answered.
We went in and grouped ourselves

was something distinctly regal in her

that of the thousands of people 1 had

It was the ‘climbers’ who invariably
