on why. However. 1 carried It into
tho cabin, and stuck it under tho glnr-s
of 11 little shabby old KnglL-h clock
which was fastened above my head.
I was busy fixing tho letter under thu
clock when who should como into thu
cabin but tho convict and hlswlfu!
This was tlie llrst time I had seen eith
er of them, and 1 may say Hint a more
prepossessing couple 1 never met.
Tho woman was scarcely more than fif
teen, nnd as li.iniUonio as it picture-;
while thu husband was an intelligent,
magnificently formed man, on whoo
features tiature.had never written vil
lain. His crime, to bo plain, was tlio mis
fortuuo of being n hundred years ahead
of bis age. llu and others had attempt
ed something which our government
called treason, nml which it punished
witli (lentil. It therefore, occasicned
mu considerable wonder that ho should
bo pluced under my charge but more
of tills afterwards.
Iluhad.as I said, hlswlfu hanging
on his arin. She was as merry as a bird;
(the looked liken turtledove cooing and
nestling between his great wings.
Before a month had passed over our
heads, I looked upon them us my own
children. Kvcry morning I used to
call Ilium into my cabin. Tho young
fellow would sit, writing at my tabic,
that is to say my chest, which was my
bed. Ho would iiftcn-help mu ut reck
oning, nnd soon learned to doit better
than I could. 1 was amazed nt his
ability. His young wifj would sit up
on 0110 of tlio round stools in my cabin
working nt her needle.
Onuday wu weroall thrco sitting in
this way when I said s
" Do you know'my young ones, as It
seems (o me, wt'liiako a pretty family
picture'.' JIluil I don't mean lo ask
ilucstion.s, hut maybe you have not
much money to spare, and you are,
Ixith of you us I think, too hand-ome
to dlo in tlio burning sun of ceyenne,
llku many a poor wretch before you.
It's u had country a bad country, take
my word for it. J, who have roughed
it through tempest, wind und sunshine,
till I've got t'no skin of it rhinoceros,
might gut along thero; but you I am
afraid of you. So, If you should liavu 11
chanco of foolish friendship for your
poor old captain, I'll tell you what
I'll do. I'll get rid of this old brig;
ehu's not much better .Unit an old tub

not a living soul now, to euro for, or
that cares for mo. I want relations, I
want 11 home, I want a family. I should
llku tu make my homo with you, my
young ones; What say yo'.'
They said nothing nt all, but sat
looking, first at oack other, then at me,
as If they doubted whether they un
derstood what I said.
At Ittol tlio Httlu blid threw her anus
around my neck and cried llkoit baby.
" Hut," said she, suddenly pausing,
"you havn't looked ut tho Jotter with
the big red senl,"
"IInngltI''l(ixt'lalmed,"lt had slip

With a cold dreadful sensation 1 went

Well thoro wo stood all thrco of in,

tlio sun was shining full upon thu faco
of tho clock caso,' and' fell upon tho
great staring red eftil of tho letter. I
could nol help fancying lt,looked souio

And oil' tllcy went, They went upon

I rememer I kept looking nt It ns I
smoked my pipe j It seemed to tlx Its

llko the eyo of 11 serpent. It wns red,

All was still except the footfall of tho

this would hnvo made mu angry; but
knowing that tho light came from the
cabin of my tlepttrten, I determined tosee
what they were about.
I Iiart only to look down I could see
Into thu cabin from tlio skylight.
I ho young girl was upon lier knees,
and was saying her prayers. A lamp

The husband was sitting upon u lit

She raised her eyes to heaven, and then

She looked like a Jlngilakr.e. As she

" So it seems to me," sbeanswerud.

At this thu little one stretched out

To liusurolt Is, continued thu charm

It was high llliiu tlio light slioulrt bo

I read thu loiter backwards uitid for

tliuy were, slio looking upon thooceiin

Catching Ids' eye, 1 signed for him to

I was bathed In ncold sweat ; I felt ns
Ifdenilly sick; I banded him tho letter,
mid he read it, together with tho death,

form, nnd attached. I gathered voice
as lio finished.
Ho colored slightly nnd bowed.
" I ask nothing, Captain," hu said, In
thu same genllu voice that always char
ncte.Izert Ids speech; "no man can bo
expected to swerve from lils duty. 1
only wish to speak 11 few words to
I.aurette, nnd to entreat you to take

hardly think sho will."
"All Hint Is fair, my good fellow," I
paid. "If you request It I will carry
her back to Franco to lier family." I
will nover lenvu lier until shu wishes to

Ho took my baud and pressed It.
"Most kind Captain, I see you stiirer

there Is no help for It. 1 trust you will

will take care she gets what her poor

ami if she could keep tho two diamond

pretty she looks."
It was getting too much for me. I
began to knit my brows.
'One word Is as good as n thousand,"
I said, "Wu understand each other,
(lo It) lier."
1 squeezed his hand ; ho looked wist
fully at me, and I added : stay 11 mo

if you can help it or you aro lost."
1 kept my seat. 1 saw them walking
inn In arm upon the deck for about
hal fund hour. I called tlio mate to me,
and when ho had read the letter, I
" (iaiiey, this Is bad business bad

" How do you wish the tiling done'."'
he tiskert, Inn nonchalant manner.
" Take liim out in 11 boat out of sight

Hurley sat live minutes looking at
me without saying a word. Hu was ti
strange fellow. 1 didn't know what to

cabin without saying a word.
