PAIJO AGHEKU thoughtfully:
“Yu, tb«r« art •J«m«nta of th« ptc
turssqus and unusual In that, right
•cough. But that is the way events
move (ouirtUuM In this curious
world of ours. A captive now, and
ten years later the chief."
"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. Do you rcmeiq
b*i 1 told you this aft» rnoon that
the ship’s strong-box Hid against the
wall and jammed so that they didn't
Lave time to open it and take the
fortune of pearls into which the
caigo had been converted?"
’ Yea.” Tom answered for ua
"Well, grandfather had never for
gotten those pearls, for one thing
and he decided to have a try at rais
ing the box." she continued. “He
kn w that there were still quite it
few glass trinkets and things that
the decade of submersion in salt
water wouldn't injure, which h*
hoped io bring up. 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.
"When he had been over to bury
the old chief be had taken the op-

had found it to be In a pr«tty fair
state es preservation. 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. While ha found
■ igns of occupancy from a few sea
sons before, be was never able to
locate any direct trace of his father
The body was sever found, but vve
are almost sure that tie spent the
test of his life them. 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

“All these years be bad kept th«
fortune In pearls her* with him. So
he took dad and the pearls and wens
to Franc*, where dad was placed ia
a private school. The pearls wars
sold to a leading firm of Paris Jewel
ers. and grandfather suddenly dis
covered himself with a big fortune
"For two years grandfather stayed
In France with dad. getting him
launched among the right people and
making plans for his education.
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.
After tligt he traveled for a year,
through the European countries, down
to Africa, serose to South America
and up through Mexico to the United
State*, where he stayed for some
time.”
"Did he try to look up his people?’
Toni asked.
“Is, he went to New Bedford.”
Puuo stated. “You see the address ol
the old homestead had been written
In the Bible which grundtathei
l ought ashore on Tarea. so he knew
where it was. He found a number ol
distant relatives. One of these, who
at the time, was a woman well along
In years, remembered that the log
book of the ship bad been received.”
"And that was tbe first clew youi
father had to the rate of bis grand
father and the mate?” 1 asked
"Yes.” she said. "But no
seemed to know just what had be
come of tbe book. There had been no
letter of explanation—Just the book
and a few of the mate’s things. So
they didn’t know what to make ol

died before he sailed, ap there was
none of the immediate family etill
there.
"It was there that dad met my
mother,” Pauo informed us. "Sh«
was the daughter of a returned mis
sionary who had been down here In
the South Sea Islands. In fact
mother was born in the Paumonian
group, when her people were sta
tioned there. That was really whal
first threw them together—that rom
mon bond—the islands. .They were
married and he brought her bock
with him here.”
"She certainly came as i bride to
a palace," lone remarked.
”1 have always loved this old
place.” Pauo agreed. “But you see,
it has always been home to me. Any
how, boats were by now touching
here more regularly and grandfather
had tbe news and was informed as to
about when they were due to arrive
in Papeete from San Francisco.
