Redwood Morton WA,perliai", the young
eat ship owner in Philadelphia. He had In
herited his wealth from a father who had
prospered In liuslnesj.and the name ol Mor

the date of the openlne of our story, he
owned but ono vessel-and she, even, was
for sale. He said he Intended to leave the

that he was Roing to marry and retire to

We shall touch there.'

Dott Farland was a good-looking man of
limited means. Though barred from the
best society of the eity,hls poems were read
and admired there, and he loved to boast
that verses, written on the gaming table,
wero quoted in the model family circle of
the best avenues. He was a fertile poet,but
his associations kept him down.
From Morton's house he went straight to
a well-known European hotel, in theparlorof
which be met a tall woman, with great blue
eyes and fair auburn hair, She sat at the
window, attired in walking costume, and
smiled when he entered.
'Well, what success?' she asked, anxious
ly, and with much impatience.
'Tolerably fair,' he replied. 'He wants
to see you.'
See mel' exclaimed the woman. 'No,
no; at least not now.
'Then you caunot sail in thel'etrel, which
departs to-morrow. You can dissemble,
Bertha ; be will believe that you have for
gotten the past, and he will gladly take you
out with him.'
'Once at sea, and he will know that I have
not forgotten,' cried the woman, clenching
her hands while her eyes flashed. 'To sail
in the Petrel, you think I must see him ?'
'I know you must,' said Dott Farland.
'To-day, then ?'
'Then be it so. I will go at once,' Ber
tha said, firmly. 'I must sail In the Petrel.'

This girl was Lottie King, and the person
called 'doll-faced' by Rertha Walker in her
anger. She had not passed her eighteenth
year, was fragile, but very beautiful; and
not so tall as the ship-owner. Her father
was dead; hut she lived with her widowed
mother whom sho helped to support with
her needle. I do not know aught of her first
acquaintance with the shipowner, but it was
plain that they had long been friends anfl

Ho was going out in the Petrel on her last
voyirgu under his ownership, and he wanted
to take Lottie with him that she might enjoy
the tropics. The scheme delighted the girl,
and before he left that night he had the prom
ise that she would go.
When he reached his quarters he found
the Petrel's captain awaiting him. The old
salt bad to report that several of the crew
had deserted, and received orders to secure
sailors in their places before sailing.
That very night two men entered a small
law office on Arch street. One was well clad
and handsome and the other was a sailor, as
his peculiar walk indicated. After entering
the room no gas was turned on, but the men

'I will take it if you will tell me why you
want the job done,
'That is none of your business, to be plain
about it,' was the reply' If you do not want
to take the offer, I will hunt another man,
for I tell you that the Petrel must be sunk
on this voyage.'
The speaker roso to his feet and picked
up his hat which ho had placed on the

'Come, let us go down.'
No, I'll sink her tor one thousaud,' said

to the Petrel's second officer on the third
night of tho storm. If wo can but weather

'But I fear we cannot ; the storm Increas

tho Petrel is aleak.'
'Aleak, cried the owner ; 'the bark Petrel
aleak in such a storm as this?'
'Why did you not tell me before?'
I dared not. Your sweetheart Is on
board, and I could not, Morton.
Great fate I' exclaimed the owner. Are
we sinking rapidly?'
Not very rapidly ; but we are liable to go
Methinks I hear tho water in the hold

There, I saw a long stretch of coast then.
Did you see It ?'
At that moment the captain's voice was

'The coast is not far oil'. I will lower the
'Quick, then 1' cried Morton, and sprang
toward Lottie King's stateroom.
'Bertha Walker's curse P he ejaculated. 'I
never thought it would be heard.'
A minute afterwards he reappeared on
deck with Lottio in his arms. The lightning
flashing every minute, revealed the pale fa
ces of the crew, and the first boat dropped
over the straining Petrel's side.
We've been scuttled, master,' the captain
said, coming up suddenly. 'One of tho new
men did it the sailor, I think.
'Where are they?'
'The sailor is missing; there stands the
other tho landsman.'
Redwood Morton ltoked at the person
designated by the captain, and a gleam of
astonishment lit up his eyes.
'Watch him,' be said to bis officer. 'I
will first seo Lottie in the beat,'
He saw tha woman he loved deposited in
the boat that rocked on the billows at the
Petrel's bide, and was about to reascend to
the deck when the ship was suddenly torn
away, and the next flash revealed her set-
