GREEN PEA PIRATES l " (Continued From Page 3) “It’s all my fault runnin’ by dead 1 reckonin’,” the honest Glbney pro tested. “Mac ain’t to fault. The en- 1 glne room telegraph busted an’ he got ; the wrong signal.” “It’s his business to see to it that ; he’s got an engine room telegraph that , won’t bust —” j "You dog!” McGuffey roared and sprang at the skipper, who leaped ‘ nimbly up the little ladder to the top ‘ of the pilot house and stood prepared - to kick Mr* McGuffey in the face , should that worthy venture up after him. “I can’t persuade you to git me nothin’ that I ought to have. I'm tired workln’ with junk an’ scraps an’ cop- | 1 per wire and pieces o’ string. I’m ’ through 1” < "You’re right—you’re through, be- l cnuse you’re fired!” Scraggs shrieked l in insane rage. “Get off my ship, you maritime impostor, or I’ll take a pistol j to you. Overboard with yotf. you greasy, addlepated bounder! You're rotten, understand? Itotten! Rotten! Rotten!” “You owe me eight dollars an’ sis ' bits, Scraggs,” Mr. McGuffey reminded 1 1 his owner calmly. “Chuck down the | I spondulicks an’ I’ll get off your ship.” | Captain Scraggs was beyond reason, j ; so he tossed the money down to the , engineer. “Now git.” he commanded. Without further ado. Mr. McGuffey ( started across the deckload to the , fo’castle head. Scraggs could not see ' him but he could hear him—so he 1 pelted the engineer with potatoes, cab- i 1 bage heads and onions, the vegetables j descending about the honest McGuffey ] in a veritable barrage. Even In the ] darkness several of these missiles took ] effect. j ( Upon reaching the very apex of the | Maggie’s bow, Mr. McGuffey turned 1 and hurled a promise into the dark- ' ness: "If we ever meet again, 1 Scraggs, I'll make Mrs. Scraggs a wid- 1 ow. Paste that In your hat —when ( you get a new one.” The Maggie was resting easily on j the beach, with the broken water from . the long lazy combers surging well up above her water line. At most, j six feet of water awaited the engineer, | who stood, peering shoreward and lls- 1 tening latently, oblivious to the stray i missiles which whizzed past. Present- < ly, from out of the fog, he heard a ■ grinding, metallic sound and through a sudden rift In the fog caught a brief glimpse of blue flame with sparks radiating faintly from It. That settled matters for Bartholo mew McGuffey. The metallic sound 1 was the protest from the wheels of a 1 Clift house trolley car rounding a !: curve; the lilue flame was an electric ; j manifestation due to the intermittent contact of her trolley with the wire, wet with fog. McGuffey knew the exact position of the Maggie now’, so he poised a moment on her bow; ns ' a wave swept past him, he leaped . < overboard, scrambled ushore, made ,: his way up the beach to the great highway which flanks the shore line j between the Cliff house and Ingleside, , sought a roadhouse, and warmed his Interior with four fingers of whisky neat. Then, feeling quite content with 11 himself, even in his wet garments, he 1 boarded a city-bound trolley car and departed for the warmth and hospital ity of Scab Johnny’s sailor boarding . house in Oregon street. Captain Scraggs sat down on the half-emptied crate of vegetables and commenced to weep bitterly—half be cause of rage and half because he re garded himself a pauper. Already 1 he had a vision of himself scouring ' the waterfront in search of a Job. “No use boo-hooin’ over spilt milk, | Seraggsy.” Always philosophical, the ] author of the owner’s woe sought to carry the disaster off lightly. “Don’t add your salt tears to a saltier sea 1 until you're certain you’re a total loss 1 an' no Insurance. I got you into this and I suppose it’s up to me to get you off, so I guess I’ll commence opera- i tions.” Suiting the action to the word, ] Mr. Glbney grasped the whistle cord j “How're We to Get My Maggie Off the Beach 1" E and a strange, sad, sneezing, wheezy E moan resembling the expiring protest f of a lusty pig and gradually increasing ; < into a long-drawn but respectable whistle rewarded his efforts. For 1 once, he could afford to be prodigal ) with the steam, and while it lasted I , there could be no mistaking the fact that here was a steamer in dire dis tress. 1 The weird call for help brought 1 Scraggs around to a fuller realization 1 of the enormity of the disaster which £ i (CONTINUED NEXT ISSUE) j ❖ •!* + + ♦ ♦ * WHIPPLE NOTES ❖ v v *> -i* -i* *> »;• -i* -i- -i- *i* New Organization The new athletic organization has, been formed to promote sport events at Fort Whipple.

And Mary sat her quickly down . and tears streamed from her eyes; ! she never found her little lamb for ■ she didn't advertise. And Mary had a brother John who kept a village ' store; he sat him down and smoked a pipe, and watched the open door. And as the people passed along and did not stop to buy, John still sat by and smoked his pipe, and blinked his sleepy eye. And so - the sheriff sold him out but still he lingered near, and Mary came to drop with Jtim, a sympathetic tear. “How is it, sister, can you tell, why other merchants here, can sell their goods so readily, and thrive from year to year?” Re membering her own bad luck the little maid replies: “These other fel lows get there, John, because they advertise.”—Ex.
