CHAPTER XIII.
THE LURE OF GOLD.
kHILIP, I want to tell you
something."
"Something pleasant?"
"No."
"Then why tell me?"
"Because, unhappily, It must be told.
I hope you will forgive me, though I
shall never forgive myself. Oh, my
dear, my dear, why did we ever meet?
And what am I to say? I well, I have
promised to marry another man."
"Disgraceful!" said Philip.
"Philip, dear, this is quite serious,"
said Iris, momentarily withdrawing
her wistful gaze from the faraway
line where sapphire sea and amber
Bky met in harmony. Northeastern
Brazil Is a favored clime. Bad weath
er is there a mere link, as it were, be
tween unbroken weeks of brilliant sun
shine. At her present pace the TJnser
Fritz would enter the harbor at Per
nambuco ou the following morning.
Iris, her troubled face resting on her
hands, her elbows propped on the rails
of the poop on the port side, looked at
Philip with an intense sadness that
was seemingly lost on him.
"I really mean what I say," she con
tinued in a low voice that vibrated
with emotion. "I have given my wor
written it entered into a most s
emu ' obligation. Somehow the pro
pect of reaching a civilized place to
morrow induces a more ordered state
of mind than has been possible since
since the Andromeda was lost."
"Who is he?" demanded Hozier dark-
y. "Coke is married. So is Watts.
Dom Corria has other fish to fry than
to dream of committing bigamy. Of
course I am well aware that you have
been flirting with San Benavides"
"Please don't make my du.ty harder
for me," pleaded Iris. "Before I met
you, before we spoke to each other
that first day at Liverpool, I had prom
ised to marry Mr. Bulmer, an old
friend of my uncle's"
"Oh he? I am sorry for Mr. Bui
mer, but it can't be done," interrupted
Hozler.
"Philip, you do not understand. I I
cared for nobody then, and my uncle
Fa Id he was in danger of bankruptcy,
Bud Mr. Bulmer undertook to help him
If I would consent." .
He turned and met her eyes. There
was a tender smile on his Hps.
"So you really believe you w3A be
compelled to marry Mr. BulinerP Vs
cried.
"Oh. don't be horrid!" she almost
Bobbed. "I ciic-cuc-can't help it."
"I have given some thought to the
problem myself," he said, "and I
appreciate exactly how well it would
serve Mr. David Verity's interests if
his niece married a wealthy old party
like Bulmer. By the way, how old Is
Bulmer?"
"Nearly seventy."
"It is a pity that Bulmer should be
b pttriarch, because his only hops of
marrying you is that I shall die nrst.
Even then he must be prepared to
espouse my widow. By the way, is it
disrespectful to describe him as a patri
arch? Isn't there some proverb about
threescore years and ten?"
"Philip, if ouly you would appre
ciate my dreadful position"
I do. it oiiebt to be ended. The
first parson we meet shall be com
ninnrieered. Don't VOU see. dear, we
really must get married at Pernam-
buco."
Iris clinched her little hands in de
spair. Why did he not understand her
misery? Though she was unwavering
In her resolution to keep faith with the
man who had twitted her with taking
all and giving nothing in return, she
could not wholly restrain the tumult
in her veins. Married in Pernambuco
Ah. if only that were possible!
"I am sure we would be happy to-
eether." she said, with a pathetic con
fidence that tempted him strongly to
take her in his arms and kiss away
her fears. "We must forget what hap
nanoA in tha innd of dreams. I will
never love any man but you, Philip.
Yet I cannot marry you.
"You will marry me in Pernambuco.'
'I will not because 1 may not. Oh,
pare me any more of this! 1 cannot
bear It! Have Dlty. dear:
"Iris, let us at least look at the posi
tion calmly. Do you really think that
fate's own decree should be set aside
merely to keep David Verity out of
the hnnkruntcv court?"
"I have given my promise, and those
two men nre certain I will Keep u.

"I shall never five you up to any

from certain death when 1 was lying

but the ten others who are left out of

dear heart, when we strike a balance
of mutual service. We are bound by
tie of comradeship that is denied to
most And what other man and wo
man now breathing can lay better
claim than we to have been joined by
the Almighty?"
The strange exigencies of their lives
flurlng the past two days had ordained
that this should be Philip's first avow
al of his feelings. Under the stress of
overpowering impulse he had clasped
Ms to his heart when they were part
ing on the island. In obedience to a
stronger law than any hitherto re
vealed to her innocent consciousness
the girl had flown to his urms when
Xsa came to the hut. And that was all

ments of delirium wrenched from a
time of gaunt tragedy and followed by
a few hours of self negation. Yet they

is never too ready to count the cost
vhen her heart declares its passion.
Give you up!" he muttered again.
'No, Iris, not if Satan brought every
dead Verity to aid the living one in
bis demand."
Coke, to whom tact was anathema,
chose that unhappy instant to summon
him to take charge of the ship.
We're givln' Pernambuco the go-by.
It's Macelo for us, quick as we can
get there," said Coke.
Hozier was In no humor for con
ciliatory methods. He turned on his
heel and walked straight to where De
Svlva was leauing against the rails,
'Captain Coke tells me that we are
not making for Pernambuco," he said,
meeting the older man's penetrating
gaze with a glance as firm and self
contained.
'That is what we have arranged,"
s-iid Dom Corria.
"It does not seem to have occurred
to you that there is one person on
board this ship whose Interests are
vastly more important than yours, sen-
bor."
"Meaning Miss Yorke?" asked the
other, who did not require to look
twice at this stern visaged man to
grasp the futility of any words but the
plainest.
"Yes."
"She will l)e safer at Maeelo than
st Pernambuco. Our only danger at
either place will be encountered at the
actual moment of landing. At Macelo
there is practically no risk of finding
a warship in the harbor. That is why
we are going there."
"And not because you are more like
ly to find adherents there?"
"It is a much smaller town than
Pernambuco, and my strength lies out
side the large cities, I admit. But
there can be no question as to our
wisdom In preferring Macelo, even
where the young lady's well being is
concerned."
"I see that, whether willing or not,
we are to be made the tools of your
ambition," interrupted Hozier curtly.
"It Is also fairly evident that I am the
only man of the Andromeda's company
whom . you have not bribed to obey
you. Well, be warned now by me. If
circumstances fall to Justify your
change of route I
shall make it my
business to settle
at least one rev
lution in Brazil
by cracking your
skull."
"Let me under

Sylva. "You hold

Soon after sunset Iris ed"
She walked ou the after deck feaa
Benavides and seemed to bo 11 ttenlng
with great attention to something he
was telling her.
When Hozier was relieved and . "m
moned to a meal In the saloon Tltu
Norrle and some of the ship's on
officers Iris was nowhere visible, L.'
went straight to her cabin and knocked.
"Who Is it?" she asked.
"I, Philip. Will you be on deck in
a quarter of an hour?"
No."
"But this time I want to tell you
something."
"Philip, dear, I am weary. I must
rest and I dare not meet you."
Dare not?"
"I am afraid of myself. Please leave
me."
He caught the sob in her voice, and
It unmanned him. He stalked off, rag
ing. While off duty he kept strict
watch and ward over the gangway
In which Iris' cabin was situated. It
was useless. She remained hidden.
As Coke had told Iris she might ex
pect to be ashore about 2 o'clock,
she waited until half past 1 ere com
ing on deck. Despite her unalterable
decision to abide by the hideous com
pact entered into with her uncle and
Bulmer, her first thought now was to
find Hozier.
Iris was thoroughly wretched and
not a little disturbed by the near pros
pect of landing In a foreign country
which would probably be plunged into
civil war by the mere advent of De
Sylva. It need hardly be said that
under these circumstances Hozier was
the one man in whose company she
would feel reasonably safe. But she
could not see him anywhere.
At lust she hailed one of the Androm
eda's men whom she met iu a gang
way. "Mr. Hozier, miss?" said he. "Oh,
he's forrard, right up In the bows,
keepln' a lookout"
This information added to her dis
tress. She ought not to go to bim.
Pull well she knew that her presence
might distract bim from an all im
portant task. So she sat forlornly on
the fore hatch, waiting there until be
might leave his post.
The steamer crept on lazily, and Iris
fancied the hour must be nearer 5
o'clock than 2 when she beard He
aler's voice ring out clearly:
"Buoy ou the port bow!"
There was a movement among the
dim figures on the bridge. A minute
later Hozier cried again:
"Buoy on the starboard bow!"
She understood then that they were
in a marked channel. Already the road
was narrowing. Soon they would be
ashore. At last Hozier came. He saw
her as he Jumped down from the fore
castle deck.
"Why are you here. Iris?" was all he
said. She looked so bowed, so hum
bled, that he could not find It In his
heart to reproach her for having
avoided him earlier. '
"I wanted to be near you," she whis
pered. "I I am frightened, rhlllp. 1
am terrified by the unknown. Some
how ou the rock our dangers were
measurable; here we shall soon be
swallowed up among a whole lot of
people."
They heard Coke's gruff order to the
watch to clear the falls of the Jolly
boat. The TJnser Fritz was going dead
slow. On the starboard side were tht
lights of a large town, but the op
poslte shore was somber and vague.
"Are we going to land at once In
small boat?" said Iris timidly.
"I fancy .there Is a new move on
foot. A gunboat is moored half
mile downstream. You minsed her be-
rause your back was turned. She has
lleam up and could slip her cables In
a minute. They saw her from the
bridge, of course, but I did not report
her, as there was a chance that my
hall might be beard, and we came In
so confidently that we are looked on as
a local trader."
He took her by the arm with that
masterful gentleness that Is so com
fortiug to a woman when danger Is
rife. They reached the bridge. Some
sailors were lowering a boat as quiet
ly as possible.
Dom Corria approached with out
stretched band.
"Goodby, Miss Yorke," he said. "I
am leaving you for a few hours, not
longer. When next we meet I ought
to have a sure grip of the presidential
ladder, and 1 shall climb quickly.
Won't you wish me luck?"
"I wish you all good fortune, Dom
Corria," said Iris. "May your plans
succeed without bloodshed."
Ah, this Is South America, remem
ber. Our conflicts are usually short
and fierce. Au revolr, Mr. Hozier. By
daybreak wc shall be better friends."
San Benavides also bade them fare
well with an easy grace not wholly
devoid of melodramatic pathos. The

dandy and the man of rags climbed
down a rope ladder, the boat fell away
from the ship's side, and the night
took them. . .
"Mr. Hozier!" cried Coke.
"Yes, sir."
"Is all clear forrard to let go an
chor?" "Yes, sir."
"Give her thirty. You go and see to
ft, will you?"
Hozier made off at a run.
Jrls recalled the last time she heard
K'tnutar words. She shuddered. Would
tllittt placid foreshore blaze out into
soar of artillery and the wornout
naoscr Fritz, like the wornout Androm-
eiti. stagger and lurch into a watery

Btat the ouly noise that Jarred the
