Uff In the distance, clear and long, rose the osprey call. Puponcean was in gome danger. We wriggled crawled back through the woods, and , onj when we chea the edge. There we awept the beach and what we could see of the Ship for signs of men but the shore was still empty as the desert Shall we run for Itr I asked. Jo," said Itodnev: "If thr. . men there, they're between us and the boat or on the boat; we'd best keep close nZ M untU we et our brlnRs.'' The advice was good; like Indians vrs made the fringe of the wnnri. b,nin. i shadow. lien we were forced to leave this sheJter we skirted the cliff, ready to crouch back at a call or to rush forward. As we neared the shadow of the head land we saw figures climb over th. r,,b of the little Inland sea and head up the beach four men, silhoutted black against the white sand, and not one of them as tall as Dupoaceau. They haven't got him." I whisnpreri "at least, he is not with them." That s queer," said Itodnev. "I haven't neara a shot tired. They must have boarded the Shin." e crossed the causeway, runninir light ly, and climbed on board. The deck vims as empty as the beach had been when we first crossed it. I rushed below and poked in all the bunks, but not a trace of Duponcean was to be found. Rodner and I stood in the bow and peered across the rocks. We could see nothing save the woods and the sky. "Well," said Isllp at last, "that takes the cake. He's vamosed, vanished, cleared out, and I dare say we'll never see hide or hair of him again. This thing's get' ting positively spooky, Selden. Are you sure that the man was flesh and blood? I certainly thought so," I answered. "But he came in the middle of the night, and he's gone at the same time. Strange I v hero on earth could he go? "Search me," said Rodney. "I thought the adventure was almost too real to be true. Such things don't happen, you know that is, not consecutively within a day's ride of New York." He consider ed the matter gravely. "But what will Barbara say if she finds we haven't kept by him?" "I was thinking of that myself," I an swered, looking blankly at him. Isllp broke into a laugh such an in fectious laugh that I couldn't help Joining him. "I dare say we're different In most ways, Selden," he said, "but we're alike In one. Well, here's how !" and he held out his hand to me. We shook hands, half seriously, half In Jest and I took back all the unkind things I had ever thought about him. We turned and went down the deck on the outer side of the mast. I heard Rod ney exclaim and saw him stop and look at the rail where his hand rested. A small gold chain was fastened to the edge. He peered over the side, and then, to my utter amazement, began to throw off his clothe. "What on earth " I began, but Rod ney only chuckled, and finished undress ing. Then from somewhere out in tne sea came the osprey's cry, clear, quavering to minor cadence. Islip slipped over the side, crossed the rocks, and dived into the waves. I Dulled on the chain and up came a bundle of clothes wrapped In Duponeeau's cloak. Then I understood, and followed Rodney's example. Never have I known such a swim as Hint. In the mystery of starlight, through a sea that seemed made of silver. We found Duponceau by his cry and followed him. resting now and then to float on the liver surface, and again racing hand over band out through the mystery, we were no longer men, but free sea creatures, in our own element, undismayed. W swam in a great circle, and at last Duponceau led us back to the Ship. Day was breaking far out, beyond the Shifting Shoal. "I saw them coming," he said. and so I hung my clotnes irom tne siae and took to the waves. They found noth ing; perchance now tfley tnuu me a S01-" . w. We tOld Dim OUr experieuL-e in ircartu- inff for the chest, and he showed a great deal of perturbation, but finally came to the wise conclusion that we could do noth ing in regard to It then. It was my turn below, and I fell asleep, in a glorious glow from the swim, just as the sky was shading pink. CHAPTER XIII. When I awoke I found Rodney seated on the cabin table. ..Mm "Morning, Selden !" ne exciaimwi. w the way, who is Monsieur Duponceau?" I shook my head, "i gave iimi tion us some time ago. uow aooui ureaa- fast?" "I was thinking of that myself, said Rodney. "I don't mind being a hero, but I prefer to play the part on a full stom ach " "I'll signal Charles." I went up on deck, and found that the sun was high up, and .hlninr on a gtorlou. orld. I fastenea a auv'u stump of the mast. Fifteen minutes later we . w t(.aJ nutiously about the point at the Astair t J yT my hous ,nd Pke t brought the tiny craft alongside of us. vr x7lTt atchinK house closelv, Mr . lel.x." he said. "It was all I could follow!" 10 rlV" without their The canoe had brought us hot coffee, eggs and rolls. We breakfasted in state in the cabin, with Charles to wait upon u d little news- beynJ the fact tnat the pines were patrolled by a num ber of men. After breakfast we passed the time as beat we could, but the morning went slowly, and we were glad when lunch was ready. This was a meagre meal, mads up of the scraps of the provisions Bar bara had brought ns. I told Charles that I preferred to have him stay with us, as there was no telling when we Bnould need every able-bodied man we could find, and so he brought the canoe on board, stowed her on the after-dec, and devoted himself to the small duties on his new housekeeping. Duponceau and Islip had slept little the night before, and shortly after lunch they took up their bunks to nap. I was on guard on the forward deck whan I heard a voice call, "Ship ahop !" and looked up to see Barbara on the cliff. I called to Charles to take my place iew moments and sallied fsrta to shore. Barbara joined me at the toot of the headland. "Well?" she asked eagerly. I told her the adventures of the pre vious night, and when I came to the ear ly morning swim her eyes danced as shs clapped her hands with delight "Oh, I wish I had been out there with you !" she cried. "I've always wanted to try a swim in ine aar." "It's just as well you weren't" I an swered sagely. She looked somewhat longingly out to sea. "What a beautiful afternoon I And are the rest of the crew working?" "The rest of the crew are sleeping. They had too much coffee for dinner last night, and It kept them awako." "And what is Charles doing?" I pointed to the deck. "He's on guard. That's the reason I'm here." "Oh, that's It, is it? I thought you came to see me." "And so I did. Suppose we sit here at the foot of the cliff, where we can look out to sea and can't be seea. There's a little nook I know of." I found the place that I sought a se cret crevice m the rocks and there we sat and watched the tide do its best to reach us as H bounded landward. Ihe afternoon drifted past, and we, br.ne on its tranquillity, were now talkrJve, now silent. Barbara rolled her beeves above her elbows, and played w'.ch the water In a little pool beside cur ldge of rocks. Her dreaming eye brooded over the ocean. I watcted her, tried to turn my eyes seaward, felt the Irresistible call, and came back to watching her. Tie time hnri come when I could think only the one thought. The sun was low, Barbara was hun u:tng a little French song. The whole world was adorable. "Barbara, I love you 1" The words were out, spoken without volition, all of themselves. She looked up; her singing stopped, and the deep blush-rose crept Into her face, while her eyes shrank. "Barbara, I love you. I have loved you since I first found you on the Ship, and I shall go on loving you until I die. I can't help it; it's not only conscious, It's partly unconscious; it's Just you calling to me. Barbara dear, you are all my hope in the world. You are the world. Will you marry me?" I was leaning forward, thinking only of that sweet, that Infinitely sweet face opposite. She smiled, her eyes turning to watch the waves, and I waited spellbound for her answer. "I haven't known you very long," she added, her voice low; "and what do you know of me?" "Everything. All I could ever know that you are the one woman In the world." "But It's summer, and it's easy to say such things in summer. It's all part of the setting. I told you once you were a dreamer. Dreamers are apt to romance, and that is probably why you are now In love with the waves and the sunshine and with me." The last words were Just a whisper. She raised her eyes to mine for a fleeting second, then dropped her lashes. "Believe me, Barbara, it's not that ; It's the truth the truest thing in th world." She played with the water In the pool at her side. I like you but, then, I like many. There's Rodney I like also. Perhaps I like you better because I have never seen you m town, nor anywhere bit In your chosen country.1 But I can't forget that there are other treasures in the sea- how can you be sure you won't come up on another and a finer? Then, too, I like men who do things, men who fight and win out and so you see," she fin ished, with a slight smile, "its not that I like any one in particular less, but the infinite possibilities moM." Then." I said stubbornly, I will wait, nnd prove my meaning lo yon." She raised ber eyes irangijr to mine -J like that," she said. After a time we walkod back to Her path and said good-by. The lieach was empty. Islip was sitting on tne snips deck, and Barbara waved to Mm and he waved back. I felt sorry lor mm, some how, for now I knew what he must feel. No wonder he couldn't go back to his be loved Wall Street "Good-by again," she said, and then, that the parting might no: be too abrupt, ali added, "I think I am growing almost as toot you of your little kingdo ivuie it wen. ' "I shall. I bare a great leal to prwe now." She sciled. "Fell of Abstalr the he turned up the path. I Tint bA tj the Sh'p mighty with. Tlm; I thirsted for trt deeds do. When I came ox board I found pl.tns for such deeds brewing. CHAPTER XIV. TXi ponceau had ben oroodln; all tiy ovw tne possibility of losing tte contnr of his precions chest and s after id argument Rodney and he hal decided to make the effort to move it to the Ship that night 1 pointed out the fact that m all probability the enemy knew nofhtnt whatever of the chest's position, snd hsj simply happened to camp In the netrhbor bood of that particular hemlock ; but Du poneeau's fn-e were aroused, and tt ai evident that he would be satisfied with nothing short of having the strong-bos under his sves. "What the donee do yon kcppoei thow papers are. that he shomd be so fearful about them?" I asked Rodney when we were alone. He shrngged his shoulders, "Heavon knows I The man isn't crasy, for Tv been studying htm closely all day, and some experience with Wall Street has put me wise on cranks. No, there's a real, live mystery somewhere, and our friend Pierre Is a somebody, though whether the tendering Jew or the lost Napoleon I can't say. Suffice It he's got a treasure chest, and It's up to ns to sit on It so tight that none of Ita pleoae-ot-elght can filter through." Fortunately the night was cloudy, and about eleven we were ready to start I had never felt so completely the despera do before. We were all three armed with revolvers, I carried a coll of rope wound about my waist and Rodney a dark lan tern which Ghat Ine had found In th cottage. Duponcoaa was th least excit ed. He took command of our expedition with th assurance of a born leader, and, In fact It was only hi overweening con fidence that gave th schema the least prospect of success. Just before we left the Ship Charles Joined us with two spades, and so, a party of four, ws stole over th beach and Into the dunes, Duponceau led us to the pine, thence wi crawled Inward, lying sllsnt after each cracking twig, straining our eyes and ears for news. When we came to the hemlock w lay four abreast and so peered over at the tent that looms 1 vaguely white ahead. The only sound was a loud and resonant snore. Duponceau crawled forward on one side of the rant and then beckoned to me to do the same on the opposite side. Wn I had wriggled forward some ten et I could look In at th tint the side of which were o;tn to th summer breeses. One man lay within, sleeving. It was clear that the enemy d not expected us. Duponcean stole j his feet I did Ilk wise. He entered the tent from one aide, and I from t other. With a swift movement he wat over the sleeping man. and bad pruned him to the bed, while he thrust handkerchief Into bis mouth, The steeper started, struggled, moaned. and tay still; I had held my revolver In Ya face. ' Id a twinkling we had him bound and gagged, rolled from his bed of houghs, and laid at a little distance. While we did this Isllp and Charles cut the gutde-ropea, and the house of our enemies fell, collapsing like a great whit balloon when the gas escape. We clear ed It away, and the place where the chest was hidden lay before us. Then followed a strange scene for those unhlstorlc pine of Alaetalr. With ears keen for the slightest alarm, Duponcean and I dug, Rodney holding his black lan tern so as to aid us,- Charles keeping watch. A foot down and my spade struck wood. In five minutes the chest was uncovered. Carefully we raised It and placed It on the ground. As his hand touched th unbroken lock I thought that Duponceau gave a little sigh of relief. (To be continued.) Coming Home la the Dark. The tunnel was dark, th tunnel was long, And the lights had all gone out. The temptation was assuredly strong Of that there could be no doubt. She has sitting by me, a portly miss Of thirty summers, or less ; When a notion struck me that I would kiss That vision of loveliness I Though the risk was great I thought it worth while, For I was full of romance, And to steal a kiss In a furtive style The pleasure could but enhance I So when we had come to the darkest part I gave her a silent smack, When I didn't expect it bless my heart!
