of the Atlantic.

On reaching the ln)ttim I stood for a
minute or two looking around me.
Which direction should 1 take? I Htruck
out to the right und made a wide cir
cle, but there was nothing unusual to
be seen. The bed was hard, rising and
dipping here and there with loose rock
lying about, and hardly any weeds. I
paused again. I tried to remember in
what direction the yucht lay, and
moved, as I thought, away from her. I
walked on and on, until it was time to
ascend, and on getting to the surface I
found 1 had wandered east of the ves
sel. "Try further south this afternoon,"
said Capt. George, when I made my re
port. "Uy the way, what did those
loose rocks look like?"
"Most of them wore rough and
ragged," 1 replied. "In some places
they were thrown together in heaps,
and in others only two or three were to
"Ah, I thought so! Pon't despair,
J.uwivnooson, you're not far from the
At three o'clock I made a second de
scent, a good deal further to the south.
Soon alter I touched the bottom, I
found something that aroused my In
terest. It was an iron stanchion, evi
dently torn from a vessel which must
have foundered close at hand. 1 went
on, and then stood still.
What was it made mo pause? I scarce
ly knew at first, but 1 had a sort of In
stinctive feeling that 1 was near some
unseen, danger. 1 moved on very cau
tiously, and halted a second time. With
it strange sense of awe stealing over
me, I became aware of a singular cir-
I Held Ip .liy Lamp And Kcad.
rumstanee for which I could not ac
count. There was a slight but peculiar
tremor in the water around me, much
like the vibration in the air after a dis
tant peal of thunder. I mee or twice,
too, 1 fancied I felt a faint heaving In
th" ground under my feet.
It was some little time before I could
bring myself to proceed. I walked llrst
ulioad, then to the left, then to the
right, and buck again towards the point
from which 1 had started. I made no
further discovery. Sometimes the
tivmulwiis motion in the water seemed
to grow more distant; frequently It
died si way until it was hardly percepti
ble. I was puzzled. 1 thought it better
to go up, and see whether Capt. (Jeorge
could give any explanation of this Pin
"Vou were within reach of the rock,"
lie said, when he had heard what 1 had
to tell. "The next time you go down
try and ascertain iro'm what point that
tremor proceed;!. Follow in this direc
tion; it will b ad to your goal."
The next morning 1 set out again. I
was now thoroughly bent upon pushing
(hi witli Hie smirch, no matter what
rirks might He In the way, I had
placed a buoy over Hie spot where 1 had
descended the previous il.'iy, and told
the men to keep rowing slowly to tho
south while I was under water, for
that was the direction I was deter
mined to take.
I still noticed that strange tremor t
have described, but I soon grew accus
tomed to it, uml walked boldly ahead.
As I proeteded. the disturbance in
creased; the ground seeimd to sway
wmler me; It was us if waves of motion
were passing ix-m-nth my feet. Once, or
twice I felt half inclined to turn back;
I was Just u lit tie bit well, I remem
bered t bad a wire and family depend
ing upon ine, nnd It looked like tempt
ing l'rovldiHiee to proceed further. JSut
1 set my teeth hard and pressed on.
Presently, the ground began to shelv
downwards. The commotion nround
ine was now so great that at times 1
had some dillicully In keeping my feet.
I was neurlntr the awful spot, then! .1
never wrote, and never will write and nobody else ever will write,
because nobody can a better story than "A DISTURBER OF
' TRAFFIC,'' a tale of seafaring; life in the Eastern seas. But Mr.
KIPLING has written just as good a story in something the same
vein and yet with a freshness and originality all its own. It is
and is a tale of an Indian boy
of piloting vessels through
where every drop of water has a romance to tell. You will have
a chance to read this story, fitly illustrated by the best newspaper
artists in The Tribune of Feb. 1) and 31. ' Order in advance from
Krew reckless. I cast aside every fear.
If I succeeded tn locating this rock,
what an inestimuble service I would
render to mankind.
As I descended into a kind of hollow,
I became nware of something like a
dark wall rising before me. At llrst I
thought it was the rock; but no; it was
long, low, and regular in outline. I
approached it; then I gave a sort of
gasp inside my helmet. Good heavens!
It was a ship!
A big steamer, too! What a sight she
presented as she lay there on her side,
rising and falling with the undulating
motion of the ground! Her musts and
funnels were gone, her decks torn up,
and her bows battered in, almost down
to the foremast. Around her, the
place was littered with wreckage, car
go of every description, and the bones
of -her gallant crew. What was her
name? 1 groped my way to the stern,
held up my lamp, and read: "Ontario,
Scarcely had I left her, and moved
further along the hollow, than another
huH appeured In sight. A sailing ship
this time! After that, almost every
step 1 took lirought me in view of a
sunken vessel. They lay scattered
around in all directions, and In all posi
tions; some mere shells, others just be
binnlng to break up, and a few which
showed they had been alloat within the
last year or two. The battered bows of
each told the sumo terrible story. Ships
of every sixe and of almost every na
tion, I suppose were huddled together
in this awful valley of death. Here
stood tho remains of an old three-decker,
and by her Bide ilay the skeleton of
a small vessel, not much bigger than a
schooner. I turned away. I had seen
At the opposite side from which I had
approached, I noticed there was an up
ward tendoney In the ground. I de
termined to proceed in that direction.
After walking for a few minutes the
ascent grew steeper. I made slow
progress, und was nearly hurled back
Into the hollow more than once. I went
down, and tore an iron bar from one of
the vessels. Armed with this I renewed
the attempt, and found it afforded mo
great assistance In the climb.
Steadying myself with the bar, nnd
taking advantage of every piece of pro
jecting rock which milght aid my as
cent, 1 crept up the steep slope. On I
went, panting, and half stilled, not dar
ing to pause lest 1 should be swept
away by the strong current which
seemed to beat down upon mo from
above. At last I reached a sort of nar
row platform, and stood there, with my
bar thrust into a crevice. I looked up.
Above me rose a great, towering, ir
regular mass of solid rock!
I scarcely remember how I got back
to the boat, for I was fooling terribly
exhausted, and my head was dizzy.
When I reached the deck of tho yacht,
it was only to drop into the nearest
seat. I must have looked scared and
white, for Captain George hurried to
"Whatever is the matter, Lawrence
son?" he said. "You look as if you had
just escaped from the jaws of some sea
"I have escaped from the jaws of
death Itself!" I replied.
you found the rock?"
Ho turned hastily, and gave an order
to one of his men, who darted away
toward the saloon. Presently the man
came running up with a glass and a
bottle of brandy.
Here, swallow off this," said Cap
tain Oeorge, handing me a pretty stilT
dram. "I can well imagine the sight
was enough to give any man a bit of a
After dinner he made me go through
the whole story of my adventure that
morning. He listened attentively, never
interrupting me once.
"Just as I thought," he said, when I
lie rose from his seat, and walked up
nnd down in silence, as if pondering
deeply over what he had just heard.
"Do you know, Lawrencoson," he
said, .suddenly halting before me, "I
would like to go down and have a look
at the place myself."
"Don't do.lt. Captain Oeorge," I re
"Why not? It is not often a man
gets a chance of witnessing a sight
like that. The risk. If there is any,
does not deter me; I shall ask for the
loan of your diving, dress this after
noon, and make the attempt."
I knew he was not the sort of man to
be lightly turned from his purpose, so I
had to give in. I told him he would
have little dilllculty in finding the spot,
as the boatmen had stationed a buoy
over It. I did not accompany him, for
I was feeling a bit out of sorts, ami laid
down on a couch in the saloon. I was
soon fast asleep.
An hour or two later I was aroused
by a step on the cabin stairs. I looked
up, nnd saw Captain Oeorge entering
the saloon. He went straight Into his
own cabin, without even glancing In
my direction. '
When he had changed the diving
dress for his ordinary yachting suit, he
came out Into the saloon, and sat down.
"Well, Captain Oeorge, what did you
think of It?" 1 asked.
"It might well be called 'The Grave
yard of the Ocean,' " he replied, sol
emnly. There was silence for a minute or
two; then he said:
"That three-decker must lie the old
Redoubtable, I fancy. She left Hermudu
who grows up to his father's trade
the strange rivers down to the seas
ill the autumn of 'G3, and has long been
returned as 'missing' at the admiralty."
After another pause I ventured to
"Raw that we have found the rock,
what's to bo done next?"
"Mow U up," he unswered, gravely.
I looked at him in amazement.
"I have brought out a quantity "of
tonlte for this very purpose," he went
on. "It is a rather powerful explosive,
four times the strength of ordinary,
blasting powder, and equal to No. 1
dynamite. As the rock appears to be
Assured, it will save us the trouble of
boring. The cartridges must be , en
cased in waterproof packing or India
rubber bags. When you have laid the
charges, we can retire to a distance,
and explode them by means of an elec
tric cable nnd battery. If wo even suc
ceed In splitting the rock, it would an
swer our purpose."
I entered heartily into the scheme,
for my whole thoughts were bent upon
getting rid of the danger. Though 1
might have to encounter some risk In
placing the charges, it was a small mat-

ter compared to the advantages that
would follow if we were successful.
For several days I was busily engaged
in Inserting the powerful cartridges,
and, as I had some experience of this
kind of work, I laid the charges so as
to give the explosion the greatest effect
At last the work was completed, the
cable laid, and all in readiness for the
final moment. It was a bright, sunny
afternoon, I remember, not much like
the general run of October days. I
looked around the wide expanse of
ocean. Not a sail was In sight.
The Wanderer had weighed anchor
that morning, and had full steam up,
rendy to depart for homo. Captain
George stood on deck, with the battery
before him. He was about to attach the
ends of the cable.
"Now," he said, when it was done,
prepare to see the last of this mys
I kept my eyes on the spot where the
buny still marked the position of the
rock. Suddenly a column of water rose
into the air, and we heard a dull report
as of distant thunder. Hut we were
little prepared for the full result. Al
most instantly with the first report
so quickly, in fact, ns to appear part of
It came the roar of a mighty detona
tion that shook the yacht from stem to
stein. A vast body of water was flung
to a height of several hundred feet,
and carried with it huge masses of
rock, some of which fell thirty or forty
yards away. It was a grand, but an
appalling sight! Never before had I
witnessed such a mighty upheaval. The
foundations of the sea seemed to have
been torn up.
The commotion on the surrounding
surface was so grea't that the Wanderer
was lifted on an immense ridge of
water, and carried away at such tre
mendous speed we had to hold on to
the woodwork ,to keep ourselves from
being dashed across the deck. When
all was still again Captain George
turned to me, and said:
"We didn't count on the pent-up
forces which lay beneath that rock.
The explosion of the tonlte must have
given them vent, and they finished the
work more completely than we ever
could have done. I expect there Is
little left either of the rock Itself or the
vessels thait lay around it. Well," he
continued, gazing back toward tho
spot from which tin- Wanderer was fast
gilding away under full steam, "I owe
little to mankind, nnd, as yet, mankind
has owed little to me. From hence
forth, however, those who traverse this
sea in future, will, without knowing It,
be debtors to me for their safety."
