of some friend's arm, laughing, but
down on tbe steerage deck there rose
s cry which wasn't laughter.
"Child overboard!" some one scream

down below, who had climbed up on
tbo rail to watch the dancing, was
It was a woman who had screamed,
and everything followed so quickly
that ray mind was confused, as if a
Whirlwind had rushed through it and
blown all tbe impressions on top of one
another in a heap. There was a babel
of .voices on the steerage deck, more
cries and shouts and screams, and peo
ple surged in a solid wave toward the
rail to look over. But of that wave
sprang one figure separating Itself from
the other atoms, and then I heard my
self give a cry, too, for the man who
iiad been in my thoughts bad thrown
off his coat and vaulted over the rail
Into the sea.
"Jove! He'll be caught by the pro
peller!" I heard somebody near me
I turned sick. The thought of his
life being crushed out while we all
looked on helpless was awful. The
sea was terrible enough In itself the
great, widv merciless, blue water,

friends instead of two strangers in a
far remote sphere of life had been in
deadly danger I don't think the sick
ness - ast my heart could have been
jworse. I would have given years if
at that moment I could have had the
magical power to stop the ship in
stantly with one wave of my hand.
But It was being stopped by anoth
er power than mine. I felt the deck
Shiver under my feet liUe a thorough
bred horse pulled on its haunches.
The accident had been seen from the
bridge. An order to stop the ship had
been telegraphed down to the engine
room and obeyed. Still when Sally
iWoodburn and I had been carried by
the crowd far enough toward the stern
to look out over the blue wilderness
of water we were leaving behind the
hip's heart hadn't ceased its throb,
throb, to which we had all grown so
aocustomed in the last few days.
"He's got the child!" exclaimed Sal
ly. "See, hes hauling the little crea
ture onto his back with one hand and
swimming with the other. Glorious
Yes, there were two heads bobbing
like black corks in the tossing waves
close together. I pictured so vividly
.what my sensations would be if 1
;were down there a mere speck in that
.vast expanse of blue that I almost
tasted salt water In my mouth and
felt the choking tingle of it in my
Then suddenly the ship's heart ceas
ed to beat, and the unaccustomed still
ness was as startling as an unexpect
ed noise. A boat shot down from the
davits, with several sailors on board.
A few seconds later they were rowing
away toward those two bobbing black
corks, and I loved them as they bent
to their oars.
I cant remember breathing once, or
even winking, until I saw tbe child
being lifted into the boat and the man
climbing in after. What a shout went
tip from the ship! Sally clapped her
pretty, dimpled bands, but I only let
any breath go at last in a great sigh.
There was such a crush that I
couldn't see them when they came on
board, but there was more shouting
and hurrahing, and men slapped each
other on the shoulders and laughed.
Throb, throb went the machinery
again, and there was no sign that any
thing out of tbe monotonous round
had happened, except In the excited
;way that people talked. Several men
we knew paid a visit to the steerage
and came back with stories which flew
about from group to group In the first
class cabin and no doubt the second

son of his mother, a widow. They
wore Swedes, and the woman, who is
ou her way to the States to try and
find a place as a servant, was quite
prostrated with the agonizing sus
pense she had suffered. As for the
little boy himself, he was not seriously
the worse for his experience. Tbe doc
tor was with htm and said that he
would be as well as ever in a few
hours. A subscription for the mother
and child had already been started
among the first class passengers and
would probably be made up to quite a
"But what is going to be done for
the one who saved the little boy's
life?" I asked the man wbo was tell
ing me the news, a Mr. Doremus, who
is a cousin of Mrs. Van der Wlndt's,
very full of fun and good natured.
"A nice little pedestal labeled 'Our
Hero' will be built out of the ladles'
admiration and given to him to pose
on," said Mr. Doremus. "However, I
must say for the gentleman though
I've only seen biui dripping wet and
shaking himself like a big dog he
didn't give me the impression of being
the sort of chap to say 'thank you' for
the perch." j
"Of course he isn't!" said L "But I
do think it's a shame if he's left out
when subscriptions are going round.
Of course he must be poor or he
wouldn't be traveling in the steerage.
Something ought to be done to show
him that the passengers admire hla
bravery not anything fnlsome, but
"I guess you don't know the Amer
ican disposition yet as well as you will
after you've wrestled with it on its
native heath fr a few months," re
marked Mr. Doremus in his quafht
way. "That chap down in the steer
age is an American, whatever else he
may be, or I'll eat my best hat, and
I wouldn't for five cents be in the depu
tation to present him with the some
thing 'not fulsome,, but nice' on a lit
tle silver salver. I should expect him
to give me the frosty mitt"
This expression struck me as being
so funny that I burst out laughing,
though I had to stop and think for a
second before I could quite see what
Mr. Doremus really meant, .but I
wouldn't forget my point in a laugh.
"Perhaps it wouldn't do to offer
money," I went on. "Suppose we got
up a subscription to buy liim a second
class passage for the rest of the
way. That would show appreciation,
"It wOuld," replied Mr. Doremus
gravely, "and if you'll start the sub
scription, Lady Betty, it'll go like wild
f,rc." "Very well, then, I will," said I.
"I bough I'd rather some one else did
"It wouldn't be so popular from any
i her quarter. Ill help you. Well go
. lilting around together and pass the
'rite, and if you like I'll do the talk-
I agreed to this, and if I'd thought
about it at all I should have supposed
that Mrs. Ess Kay would be as
pleased as Punch with such an ar
rangement, because Mr. Doremus, as
a relative of Mrs. Van der Wlndt's,
is the only man on board to whom she
makes herself agreeable. It appears
that he has started several fashions
in New York, the most important be
ing to drive in some park they have
there without a hat. But probably if
the truth were known he lost it, like
the fox that tried to make his friends
chop off their tails.
Mrs. Ess Kay had gone to her state
room soon after lunch, as the motion
of the ship had given her a headache,
and I didn't happen to be near Sally
Woodburn. So I said "yes" to Mr.
Doremus on the impulse of the mo
ment without stopping to think wheth
er I ought to ask permission first.
We had great fun going about, for
Mr. Doremus was so witty and said
such amusing things to the people he
begged of that I could hardly speak
for laughing, and every one else laugh
ed too. I wished that he wouldn't put
me forward always and say it was my
idea and I had started the subscrip
tion. But he argued that I must sac
rifice myself for the success of the i
charity Just as I would at home if LJ
had to work oft damaged pincushions )
or day before yesterday's violets at a
bazaar. Of course, not being out
I've never sold anything at a bazaar,
but Victoria is continually doing it in
the season, and she makes quite n
virtue of forcing perfect strangers to
"stand and deliver," as she calls it
This seemed much the same sort of
thing to me, and so I felt nice and
virtuous, too, as Vic does when she
comes home with a new frock torn
and stepped on and lies in bed late
next day, with Thompson to brush her
hair and me to read to her.
People were very kind, and, though
they laughed a great deal, they gave
so much that before we'd been half
the rounds Mr. Doremus said we had
more than enongh for our friend. He
wanted to know if I would like to "hit
the nail on the head" and settle mat
ters at once by arranging with the
purser for a second class cabin to be
put at the hero's disposal I wanted
him to do that part alone, but be pre-1
tended to be shy and said be had i
grown to depend so entirely on ray co- j
operation mat ne ien unequal to un
dertaking any responsibility without
It He told tbe same story to the
purser that be had told others about
my being the one to start the sub
scription, and he wanted ms to sign s
kind of letter which he wrote, to tbe
effect that the passengers had chosen
this way of testifying their apprecia
tion of a gallant deed and to on, but I
wouldn't, and he stopped teasing at
laat.when he taw that 1 was going, to

Doremue called "Axed up," he took me
back to my chair on deck. Sail;

dering what had become of her tbe
dressing for dinner bugle' went walling
over tbe ship like a hungry banshee.
I said to myself that Sally must have
gone early because her frock was to b
particularly elaborate. I felt con
scious of having heaps of Interesting
things to tell, and I understood exact
ly what Victoria means when she says
she's in one of her "ritty and populai

There were two headt bobbing TTke black
I danced Into our stateroom, where
only a drawn curtain 'covers the open
doorway. No one was there, and the
cabin was so quiet that it seemed to
greet me with a warning "S-sh!"
Down fell my spirits with a dull
thud, though I didn't know why. My
Joyousness changed to what story book
writers describe as a "foreboding of
disaster," but when I have it it's gen
erally connected with a lecture from
mother, so I know it only as a sneaky
"I haven't eaten the cream" sort of
Just as I had begun to take off my
frock Louise appeared at the door
which leads into the little drawing
room. She said that if I pleased
madam would be glad to see me in
her cabin. I hurried across to the
other stateroom opposite to ours and
there found Mrs. Ess Kay In a gor
geously embroidered pink satin Japa
nese thing which 6lie calls a kimona.
She was sitting in a chair in front of
the makeshift dressing table putting
on her rings and clasping bracelets
on her wrists with vicious snaps. Sal
ly, who hadn't begun to dress, was
standing up looking almost cross
that is. with different features from
hers she might have succeeded In
"Sit down, Betty, please, I want to
talk to you," said Mrs. Ess Kay.
Somehow it always. makes me feel
stiff when she "Betty's" me, as my
old nurse says it does with your ears
if you eat broad beans.
"If I do I shall be late for dinner,"
sa Id I, just as if a minute ago I hadn't
been dying to pour out my news.
"Never mind dinner, my dear girl,"
replied Mrs. Ess Kay, with an air
which I do believe she tried to copy
from mother. "What I have to say is
more Important than dinner. I hope
what I have been hearing isn't true."
"That depends upon what it was,"
I retorted, disguising my pertness
wfth a smile.
"Don't think I've been tattling," said
Sally. "Whatever my faults may be,
I haven't a rubber neck."
I didn't know in the least what she
meant But afterward she explained
that if your neck is always pivoting
around to pry into other people's af
fairs it is a rubber neck, and I shall
remember the expression to tell Stan
when I go home. He will like to add
it to his collection of strange beasts.
Mrs. Ess Kay partly turned her back
upon Sally. "The dear duchess" (she
always speaks of mother in that way),
"the dear duchess has intrusted you
to my charge, Betty, and I don't know
what I shall do if you take advantage
of me by playing naughty tricks when
ever I am incapacitated from chape
roning you for half an hour."
One would have thought I was a
trained dog! I simply startfi with sau
cer eyes, and she weut ou. "Mrs. Col
lingwood came in to inquire for my
headache, and she told fie that you
have been running about begging for
money to give to a common man in
the steerage. I sent instantly for Sal
ly, but she either knows or pretends
to know nothing."
I rushed into explanations, sure that
when Mrs. Ess Kay understood I
should be pronounced "not guilty."
But to my surprise, ber chin grew
squarer and squarer and her eyes
harder and lighter till they looked al
"I don't want to be harsh," she said
at last in the tone people use when
they're walking on the ragged edge of
their patience, "but for the duchess'
sake I must be firm. It was very
wrong of Tommy Doremus to let you
make yourself so conspicuous. This
may lead to your being dreadfully
misunderstood and putting yourself
and all of us Hi a false position. The
man may be e butcher, for all you
"His complexion isn't pink and white
enough for a butcher's," said IA "Be
sides, I thought that in America one
man was as good as another."
"You were never more mistaken in
your life, my dear girl, and tbe sooner
you correct such an Impression the
better or you may get into serioui
trouble from which 1 can't save yon.
If tbe steerage man isn't a butcher,
he's probably a professional swimmei
and the whole thing was a scheme tc
advertise himself. In fact, I am pret
ty certain from what Mrs. Colling
wood said It was that And I want
you to promise me solemnly that yon
will not go around helping to adver
tise the creature any more. If you say
you admire such a person, people will
think you're like tbe matinee girls

Afterward Mrs. Est Kay was cool
to Mr. Doremus and would have been
cold, I think, if be weren't Mrs. Van
der Wlndt's cousin. He lounged up
to our place on deck to give me the
news that the third class hero (at ha
calls the bronze young man) refused
to be second , class, ne bad asked
permission to givo the cablu offered
blm to tbe child whose lifo be bad
saved and the mother.
"It's for you tp say yes or no, Lady
Betty," announced Mr. Doremut, "be
cause It's your show. You set tbe top
"She is to have nothing more to do
with the affair," Mrs. Ess Kay An
swered for me quickly. "She is very
sorry 6he commenced it and has lost
the small interest she felt in the be
ginning. I do hope that tramp or beg
gar or whatever he is hasn't got it in
his conceited head that Lady Betty
Bulkeley has bothered herself about
his insignificant affairs, or he'll be
thrusting himself upon her notice In
some way which will be very dis
agreeable for me, as her guardian."
"Well, be has sent a message of
thanks to every one concerned," said
Mr. Tommy Doremus. "I don't know
whether he put Lady Betty at the top
of the list or not, and if that's the
way you feel about our nice little
stunt I expect it's Just as well not to
All the rest of the trip has been
spoiled for me by the hateful way In
which tbe excitement of that day end
ed, and it does seem too bad, for
everything might have been so nice.
Whether people really do make 111
natured Jokes or not I don't know.
But anyhow, Mrs. Ess Kay keeps
hinting that they do, which is almost
as disagreeable for me. She says that
they have nicknamed the bronze man
"Lady Betty's hero," and this has
made me so self conscious that I can't
bear to go nea the part of the deck
where you look over into the steerage
for fear some silly creatures may
think I'm trying to see him. I feel
as if I bad been a conspicuous idiot
and I'm so uncomfortable with Mrs.
Ess Kay now that I expect to be
wretched in her bouse. I can't talk
it over even with Sally, because after
all she's Mrs. Ess Kay's cousin. I
wish I had a nose two Inches long and
green hair, and then perhaps mother
and Vic would have let me stop at
Still I can't help taking an interest
in ship life, and now that it's tbe
morning of tbe last day on board I
look back on it all as if it ought to
have been even more fun than it was.
I enjoyed bearing about the mar
conigrams when they came. It seem
ed like living in a tale by Stan's fa
vorite, Jules Verne, to have messages
come flying to us in midocean like in
visible carrier pigeons. I enjoyed
having Mr. Doremus tell me about his
luck In tbe big pools when the men
bet on tbe day's run, and I'm afraid
I rather reveled in seeing a row on
deck one evening when one man ac
cused another of being a cheat and a
professional gambler and almost cried
about some money he'd lost If I had
been the first man I wouldn't have
trusted the other in the beginning, be
cause be had fat lips, greasy black
curls and wicked eyes so close to
gether you felt they might run Into
one if he winked too hard on a hot
day. But if I had been so stupid as to
trust him I would have been ashamed
to make a fuss afterward. I think
people ought to be sporting.
I liked the "captain's dinner," too, in
honor of the last nlgbt on board, with
the flags and paper flower decorations,
the band playing military music, tbe
dishes on the menu named after fa
mous generals and the stewards filing
in in a long procession when the salon
had been darkened, each carrying a
bright colored, illuminated Ice and
cake with tiny English and American
and German flags stuck into tbe top.
Yes, I liked everything, exceptbut
now it is nearly over. America Is just
round the corner of the world.
