Th« fan of the wake streamed out behind, white and boiling, where that iplnnUig screw churned the bnas to i smother of foam. Thus for a time we raced along at that 40-mtle dip.

We could have landed anywhere around the wall of the cove for the path formed a natural dock with deep water at just the right level to lay the deck of the boat Hush with the path.

I took a line out over the forward deck and made fast to a wild orange tree, that grew close, while Tom trimmed and taughtened the stern line Just as lie came ashore we heard a squeal from I’illy. who had strolled down the beach. "Well, wbnt do you make of this?” she called. Tom and I had Joined the others and wa all started over to where she was stand ing staring intensely at something at her feet. “Who says this Island's deserted,“ she demanded. “Here are the foot prints of Itobin9on Crusoe's man Friday—but they are perfectly black and look, it's the funniest thing, they look as though he hadn't weighed an ounce—they don't dig down Into thy sand.'* f'uuo suddenly froze. None of us will ever forget the way her eyes widened with horror as she studied tho.se curious footprints. There on the white sand, as clearly as though they had been drawn with India Ink were two distinct sets of the prints made apparently by different people —but there was not ths slightest Indentation In the sand.

She bad lived long to the Islands. There are sc me things that science can't seem to explain. “Why." said PUIy. explosively, as only she can say It. “Can you Imagine it! A real ghost's footprint T i am simply amazed!" She gazed at bet discovery as a scientist might at wit nessing an Intricate experiment sud denly defying all natural laws Feat and awe were large component parti of her mingled emotion. “All of which proves what?" Tom wanted to know. VYe looked at Pauo ouestionlngly. "The Tupapau of the 3ea' corns ashore on an Island before death oc curs.” she said, and her voice sounded os though fright had sanded her throat. “They are never wrong. It will come sometime within three days after the prints are seen. Every time someone dies these foot prints are not necessarily found, but every time they are seen—someone does die. “Don't ask me to explain It —I can't- It Is one of the things that happens here In the Islands." She was trembling slightly. Her face was chalk white, and she was clinging to Holmes' arm. “Well, for all of that, and what with ghosts and tupapau,' this Is a delightful spot." Tom unnounced with some force. He picked up a flat stone —skipped U across the placid water of the lagoon ana stood count* ing the number of skips aloud. I saw what he was trying to do.
