Tou know Alastair? No how should Pmt ? V.pv four ruinnl. Irnniv If nnrl T have done my best to keep the secret to myself. The place lies, however, not so very far from, great cities on the Atlan tic coast. You take a train northward from Boston, and when you reach the proper station -you alight and climb Into a countryman's wagon, and he drives you through the pines by a twisting, sand built road to Alastair. Tou will know it because you can go no farther, unless you choose to drive into the waves. Few people come to Alastair. Most of the travelers in this part of the world turn off about a mile inland from the honnh nnil trn on fnl Another mile And a half to the Penguin Club. The latter ht- full of New iorkers who come to tne pines and the sea to hunt and finh and forget Wall Street and Fifth Avenue. They forget it by keeping close together, and dressing for dinner, and dancing every other night. Alnstair Itself is only a beach between two great headlands. From the end where my cottage stands, snugly hid In the pines on the edge of the dunes, the beach stretches smooth and white to a little land-locked harbor at the farther end. Sit on my porch and look down along the sands to the east and you will see a reef of rocks shaped like the letter U that closes in a little salt water lake with the aid of a distant cliff. It Is not quite a lake, rather a small In land sea, for the tides have room to ebb nnd flow. A ship is settled into the sands of this sea, settled upright, so that oue may walk tho decks, and I often go there of an afternoon when the tide is low and climb on board. It Is a good place to sketch, and I can leave my paints and canvas in the cabin. I stumbled across Alastair when I was looking for a quiet place in which to write. I found the dilapidated cottage, camped in It for a week, and fell so much In love with the beach that I went to town, bought the house and part of the woods, and moved In. Charles, the man who had served my father before me, de murred at first, but finally gave In, and turned himself Into cook, housemaid, and valet for my sake. From my balcony I can see the distant rocks of the little Inland sea and, stand ing up above them, the high sides of the ship, and Its single remaining broken mast pointing straight to the heavens. Sometimes the stars seem to outline where the missing spars and sails should be and on a bright night I can half close my eyes and fancy that I see the rigging lighted and lanterns burning on the quar- There' Is history hidden In that bat tered hulk. She is no ordinary vessel, and may once, for all I know, have been . pirate craft She has the long clipper lines of swiftness, and her high, bulging bow Is of a type long past. When I first came to Alastair I made Inquiries M to her history, but the oldest farmer could tell me only that she had always been there so far as be knew, and dis missed the subject as of no importance. The people of the near-by comtry ap peared never to have boarded the casta way I felt the joys of Crusoe when I firrt climbed on her deck J" was gone, long ago washed out by the ea; the deck was bare, and the top of the forecastle choked with sand. I brought a shovel and dug away the ram part drifted against the hatches. At last I could open the door and clearing be steps of what little snnd bad mf ted hrough, I descended into the cabin. It was mildewed with damp and water, but in time, by balling and letting the sun' in, I dried it out and lound quite a hab itable apartment, furnished with table and chairs and a row of bunks along the seaward side. Whatever there bad been that was portable the first wreckers must years before have carried off. All that was left was a heavy oaken chest, stud ded with brass nails, now greenish-yellow, and when I broke the lock I fonnd the chest bare. My fancy loved to play about the ship. Often I dreamed of her and of a man who should come up out of the sea and tread her deck again. He was al ways a magnetic figure, and I never could resist the call of mystery to fight beside him. CHAPTER II. It was the most beautiful August that I remembered. The air was clear as a bell, and day after day the sun rose on a tranquil world and smiled at It for joy. Every morning at breakfast I would say to Charles, "Did you ever know such weather, Charles?" and he would answer, "No, sir, I never did. sir," and every evening at supper I would say, "It has been a glorious day, Charles, hasn't it?" and he would answer, "It has, sir, Indeed It has, sir." My family servant made a perfect echo. The afternoon on which I finished the first half of my book I sat for some time on the porch outside my den, smoking. I was too serene to stir. I watched the gulls circle and skim above the pine crowned cliff, and the lazy waves, rising occasionally Into sparkling white caps, lift their heads and duck again like play ful dolphins. ' The tide was coming in ; I could mark the great wet circles on the beach as it advanced, now receding for a moment, but quickly recovering the lost ground and marching on, steadily winning over the yellow sands. It would be high-tide by sunset or a little after; everything was setting In from sea to land ; the salt smell was coming strongly on the east wind. About 5 o'clock I shut the door of my cottage and started down the beach, con scious of no further plan than to board the ship and, possibly, catch something of the late afternoon color for my can vas. Now and again I stopped to watch small flocks of sand-snipe scurry over the wet, glistening sands, now to watch a wave recede and leave a path of opales cent pebbles in its wake. There were jewels for all the world and to spare as long as the water bathed the stone. So, walking leisurely, I came in time to the far end, and looked across the har boring rocks to the ship. To my surprise, a young woman stood on the deck, and fluttering from a splinter of the mast was a white handkerchief. She was look ing across at me, her hands shading ber eyes from the sunset glitter at my back, and as she saw me look up she waved her hand beckonlngly. The easy path to the ship lay . through a small break where the rocks joined the cliff, but this break was some distance off. With a smile for what I saw must have happened to the skipper, I climbed over the near est rocks and stood on the edge of the little inland sea. Sure enough, the tide in rising had covered the causeway Jo the cliff, and was pouring in, fast filling the harbor, like the bowl of a flooded fountain. The water was not yet deep ; it barely covered the path by which the explorer had come, and even off the rocks In front of it It was scarcely up to my knees. Tee woman ot the ship eaPed, Trs snarooned. I came by the path and for got all about the tide. What shall I do?" She pointed towards th way she had come, but I was In rough clothes and quite need to a wetting, so I waded in and. crossing the shallow bowl, quickly scrambled on to the high deck. I stood updripplng and laughing. "So you thought you'd go for a sail," I asked, "but didn't think you'd sail so far from land?" The girl I saw now that she couldn't be more than 20 looked quizzically at nw for a second, then smiled, and finally laughed. "It was such a very real ship." she said, "that I couldn't resist the call. I fell asleep sitting against the gunwale, and when I woke up the water was over the path not very far over, 'but quit enough to ruin these forever." She pointed to her kid slippers. "I was grow ing desperate when I saw you on the beach." ' I was studying the slippers ; there was no question but that the salt water would ruin them. She Inspected them also. "It was very foolish of me to wear them, but I had no Idea of going far when I left the club. The first thing I knew, I caught a glimpse of the water, and then I forgot the slippers and walked on until I came to that cliff, and from there I saw this little harbor and this boat, and I couldn't resist that, could If" I shook my head. "Nobody could re sist It." "I had just about come to the point of taking them off and wading In," she went on, and then finished, "when I sighted you." "I can go away again," I suggested. "No," she said slowly ; "I'd rather you didn't do that. There must b som other way out of It." "There are several other ways," I an swered. "I've often studied the problem from this very deck." I thought she looked a little bit sur prised. "Do you often find people ma rooned here girls, I mean?" "No, but I've often wondered what I should do if I did. To tell the truth, I've sever found any one here before, but the ship looks as If she ought to be In habited. She's a good ship, and once belonged to a pirate chief.' "How do you know that?" she asked. "By the oaken chest below-deck. It has the pirate look, though thete's noth ing In it." "Yes," she said; "I made an exploring trip and I found the chest." "Don't you agree with me, then?" Again there came that quizzical look In ber eyes, and then the smile. "Yes," she said; "It must have belong ed to a pirate." She stopped short and ths smile spread from her lips to her eyes. "Shall I tell you a secret? When I fell asleep here an hour ago I dreamed of pirates, ot a real old-fashioned buc caneer who came up out of the cabin fully armed, pistols in his pockets and In his hands and a pistol clenched In his teeth. The funny part of It is that be was exceedingly polite to me. Do you ever have such foolish dreams as that?" "Often ; a buccaneer calls on me every other week. I'm only waiting for the chance to ship with one. I think their ghosts must still Inhabit Alastair." The girl's hand stole up to capture some loose strands of hair, and for the first time I noted the tine spun gold In the son. "Alastair?" she repeated. "Oh, so this Is the beach of .Alastair and you?" She paused. "You must be the man they told me about at the club you live In a cottage at the far end of the beachj and write books, and never come out of your shell." I bowed. "I am the man," I said, "and yonder is my home." I pointed west ward to where the tip of my balcony showed between the dunes. "What a beautiful little world!" she said, and thed, a moment later, "but how lonely 1 Who named the place Alas tair?" "I don't know. It's always been called that, apparently." "It's a lovely name. And what do you call the ship?" "Oh, just the Ship. Her other name disappeared years and years ago." "The Ship of Alastair. And do you sometimes come on board of her to wrlteT' "No, I have a den foe that Some times I come here to paint. I keep my things in the cabin.' "Yes, I found them," she said. "You see, I know a great deal more about you than you think." (To be continued.) Let t-IIanded Barber. "Of course left-handed persons are scarce anyhow," said the man who car ries bra habits of observation even Into the barber's chair, according" to the Washington Post, "but they are mighty scarce among; barbers; In fact, I have seen but two or three In my experi ence. "But you ere sure to notice It when you do find one. , He does just as elfl clent work, but It Is the way he does It that attracts your notice. "The barber as a rule stands at the right of the customer while shaving him, making little trips to the back and to the left only when necessary. Nat urally, I suppose, the left-handed bar ber does just the opposite; he stands most of the time at your left "For that reason yon won't find a left-handed barber In the middle of a line of .barbers. His chair has to stand at one end so that he Won't bump into the right-handed one next to him. "Like most left-banded persons his right Is more dexterous than the left hand of - right-handed persons usually Is. He shaves you with either hand, but prefers the left. He strops a razor just aa a right-handed one does, how ever, and that Is about the only point of similarity." , ' . 1 Wo WaUklnsT.
