"So It wasn't for a decade he had an opportunity to go back o Tarea. 1 * I said. “Did he ntuke any search at that time to try to discover his father’s fate7" "Taa. but It hud to be very hur ried,'' she replied. “His people were waiting for him to return to Moa touga. After tic had attended to the lust rites for his old benefactor, the late chief, and had placed him in the Tomb of the Kings, which ts hi>;h iu Tartu's south peak—l don’t know Just where—he went up to look over the ohl temple which is in the north spire. “Did he find anything?" Holmes queried. “He found old signs of habitation there, but nothing which could have been recent, which would have lead him to believe that his father, the captain, was still alive there. Hut lie determined to shortly conduct a thorough search of the entire island.” *T can imagine he would have to move pretty carefully, ocing new to th' chieftainship, so us not to alien ate bis i«eoplc,” lone offered. ’That's true.” l’auo agreed. "He asaigaed that very reason for his having wailed for a time after that. You see, all Ids people knew his his tory— how he happened to come among them. Being their chief now. they naturally wanted hie first in terest to lie among ’hem. He recog nised this logical fact and was suffi ciently sagacious to act accordingly Tarea with Its desecrated temple was •mister to them, and he understood why." "You said the old ship went down on shadow water. Did he see it that time, or had it been broken up by the storm* in the years that had passed T’ I asked. “I was Just coining to that." I’auo replied. "It was cn that old wreck that grandfather founded the for tunes of our family.

These could b' distributed among the divers. ’The reason he planned to work on the wrack first was to more or less accustom his peopl? to being around Tarea—to sort n f wear off some of the fear of the place.

You eee, the water ia clear and he could see It plainly. Being in the lagoon, in a very sheltered spot, the great storms, which sweep these seas, had done little damagfe. "He noticed at that time that the whale-boat was gone, and be figured that his father and the mate might have escaped with it. You see. at that time lie had never been iu touch with the outside world—” "Didn't know that Van Syke. the male, hud gotten into Papeete to die nearly ten* years before," I suggested. "When did he learn that?" "It was just a little white before his death,” Pauo answered. "What about the pearls on the wreck." Pilly asked. "Grandfather organized a group of the best divers on the islunds. In those *iays there were hundreds to pick from," Pauo said. "You folks have noticed the little youngsters around here. They learn to swim as soon as they learn to walk. Water Is almost as hatural an element to the island people as the land. There are many crack divers and grandfather selected thy best. "With thpae be went to Tarea and began salvaging the wreck. The ship's strong bos was very heavy. The men couldn't lift it through the door, working under water that way. Finally they had So cut the top from the cabin. "Then they rot bark ropes on the safe and hoisted It The first time, the ropes broke when they had it part way up. and they had to do it over again with stronger strands— tiu’ they got K up. "Grandfather finally got It broken open. Inside lay the fortune of pearls. Safe and In perfect condition They were as good as the day the ship sank with them. "It was sometime shortly after this that grandfather made a thorough search of Tarea.

Os course ho may just possibly have attempted to escape with the mata. "Grandfather I'tift married later and my father waa bom. Life was pleasant here and so here he stayed." I noticed that Holmes didn’t ask her who her grandmother was. I think w* all noticed it. He was the logical one to propound any ques tions on that subject, and as long as lie kept silent We followed suit. That, i remember at the time, was my ow n reaction, and I think It was the reac tion of the rest of us. Anyway there was no questioning on the subject. Pauo went on: "When dad was twelve years old a ship put in here to fill her water '•asks. Suddenly grandfather made up his mind that it was time dad's education should start. He found that the ship was bound for France. "You see in the meantime the French soveimuaut bad established, All accounts of the Samuel Watkins Dept. Store will be offered for sale at the same time.

Then he returned here, imported ma terials and a force of workmen and began the building of this house. “Grandfather felt that when dad came lack here be would want some of the comforts to which he had be •coine accustomed, and he planned to make It of the best. For years th* work went steadily forward undet the direction of a French buildei grandfather had hired for the job. "Dad finished the last two years ol his education in England, at Oxford.

He found a number ol distant relatives.
