Remembering how earth, too, onoe wee fair And dearly loved of okL The pearly gates may shine reepleo dently. Fair to my wondering eyes. But they can never bar the memory Os earthly, sunset skies.

"Was that the first time he bad been to Papeete?” Tom asked. "As far as 1 ever knew, it was." Che girl replied. “At least it was on that trip that be learned the facts' •bout tbe arrival and death of the mate. Van Syke." "Which, of course, confirmed his belief that his own father had spent hie last days on Tarea.” 1 offered. “Yes. That is what he always be lieved," she told us. "Anyway he •old the schooner in (Papeete and :aught a liner fbr Australia, where be bad the Sequoia built.'' “That Is a grand schooner," Tom declared. "She has some of the finest lines I have ever seen on a boat of her type, and she seems to be is sound as a nut." Pauo smiled: “She was the finest i 03-footer that “ver slid down tbe ways of one of the biggest Austra lian shipyards up to that time." she replied. "She Is solid mahogany from tier forefoot to her rudder. Grand father never seemed to do things by halves." "She looks like a good 'dirty weather' boat,” Tom announced. "If you would call riding out more than a dozen hurricanes in the open see during those years, she'll fill that Sill," I’auo declared. She looked qutz ically at Tom: "You never saw a hurricane as we get them down here did you?” “Not yet." “Wait until the wind begins screaming up between 80 and 100 miles an hour," Pauo stated with knowing emphasis. "It is an educa tion." "What happened after he got the boat built?" 1 wanted to know. “He sailed her back to Papeete In time to meet the newlyweds." she Hiid. "At that time dad and grand father hadn't met for nearly eight years. They all came home here and •gttled down." "And then?” I raised by eyebrows. "Bloody old Tarea ‘got them.'" Pauo said quietly. T think wa all sat up at that 1 know my nerve* Jerked. It was the way she had said it She said slowly: "First It was my great-grand father. Then it took my grandfather, •nd next bis wife, my grandmother. My own mother was taken next, and finally my dad.

"It has followed nay family for al most a century with b chain of vio lent deaths. Visiting the iniquities of my great-grandfather on the Whit ney line, generation after genera tion.

There are tmngs that hap pen here that can’t be explained by science. There la no logical reason. But they HAPPEN! I have lived here all my life. I KNOW!" "You sure you are not a bit super stitious?" Holmes said lightly. "Wouldn't you admit being just a little superstitious?" He was banter ing. Saw he wa* in a bad spot and was trying to josh and kid her out of it. "Call it by any name you like," she told him softly, "but I have seen too many things happen not to be con vinced of what I have seen with my own eyes. When certain occurrences are always followed by the same re sult. you come to believe.

This sextette has work to do —a mystery to solve—” "It's a heck of a note to have to spend about one-third of your life in bed." Pilly grumbled. By the time 1 am 60 l'U have spent !Q years asleep—“ “I can think of a smart crack at this point," 1 retorted, "but In the Interests of peace and harmony. I'll refrain from making it.” i didn't realize how fagged I was until I stood up and started for the room. 1 remember lying there In the warm darkness and hearing the foot falls of the sentry as he passed the window making his rounds of the building. It was a comfortable sound. I wondered where Livingston—hard, courteous. Impassive, determined. Livingston might be.

Better so. probably, it makes existence more interesting. It was late when I opened by eyes. 1 knew by the light in the room that the sun was high. The living room was empty as 1 went through lb a bathing suit headed for the lagoon. I found the others sunning them selves down in front of the boat house. Tom and tarry had the shoul der straps of their suits down and were lying In the sun painting on a little more of that ever deepening coat of tan. 1 waved in greeting as 1 raced along the pfer and leaped over In a running dive. Cool water roared past my ears and Imparted a delightfully exhilarating shock to my body. That pepping up was welcome, for I had stili been a bit slumber-fogged, from too sound sleep. The impetus of tbe dive died and I popped to the surface, threw the hair from my eyes, and lit out for the boat house In a fast crawl. I was breathing bard as I pulled my self from the water and joined the others. But my head was clear. “Hurry up and get your tan ning.’ " Pauo directed. "As soon as we breakfast and change we are going to burn a little of that pre cious gasoline " “Yes?" I said pulling down the shoulder straps and lying face down.

"Just a few minutes before you came down.” Larry said. “You weren't the only one to miss tbe ‘8:15 train’ this morning." Turning my head 1 looked into tbe boat bouse and discovered Tino bus ily polishing bright work on the gas boats. “Who let Tino out?" I asked Tom softly. Tom was lying next me. He turned his head. "After you turned in last night we remembered be was still locked up. Pakai wanted to get into .er room. We brought Mm down and Pauo and the rest of us took turns scolding him.

"Tino said he accidentally'came in just as they were leaving and Liv ingston ordered him taken along to prevent any alarm being given.” “Shanghaied him?" “Yea” “How come Pauo lldn’t know that?” “They had gone on out with her w lien it happened, and she didn’t are 1C Livingston put a revolver ugoinnt Hoila'* head and they gagged him. and marched him with them." “t 'oiildn’t Pauo nee that he wasn't going willingly?"

Then added thoughtfully: “This boat house is a strategic position, and we can’t af ford to have anything happen to th« transportation.” "I understand," Tom said. "But It Is perfectly safe.

Actually the convention appeared to favor Senator Hi*am Bingham or Nicholas Murray Butler for president purely on the wet issue. But will there be a third party and if so, will it face economic truths? The prevailing sentiment here is that no Republican delegates from purely Republican states went home dis couraged. yet with no plan, aside from that of Nicholas Murray Butler. Os ail the leaders who attended the con vention there was nome ready to meet the economic situations. The La Folletles and other pro gressives had no place in the con vention. Butler is old, he will lead no revolt. Republican office-holders in south ern states, always controlled by the administration or the old gttard. gave the administration's steam roller it« effectiveness In the convention just ended but the victory may prove ex pensive. Cry Has More Than “Beer'’ I tis true that the Republican re volt occurred over the liquor plank. It Is true that delegates gave hardly a thought to anything else. It is true that some leaders desired a "stronger” man for vice president because they see need for powerful anti-red public figures, but delegates remained calm on that. Yet, beneath the cry for beer is an economic urge to grasp at something to bring us out of the dumps. The drys have found the depression their worst enemy. In the meantime, the rank and fil® having tasted near victory in the Re publican convention on the liquor is sue, will not be silent on other Is sues. If the Democratic convention does not give its delegates any great er satisfaction, then both major par ties may suddenly find themselvet confronted by an unorganized group much more difficult to fight than a third party.
