a question or two which seemed to
have an Indirect bearing upon the case.

at all. It -would be time enough wnen
the stilt was won. r
In the meantime Qulmby and Moses
were disturbed by an unthought of con
tingency. Just : when they ... had com
pleted the plans ior me uuum nnu
tltlons; after consultations that were
i nti.i uimptlmeti warm:
and Moses Tta "got out the stuff for
these architectural cnangen aim
provements, the tiToprietor was served
with- an injunction, restraining him
from cutting, sawing, or removing any
portoln of the woouwom ui ine
. . - r.. nP mnkinir nnv addition
thereto of any character whatsoever.
"Look a-here," saiu
been Injuncted and whafs to prevent
my doln' the work on my own respon
sibility?" , ,
"Thut wouldn't do," said Nathaniel.
"Law Is law. and I'm Bolntr to abide
by It. Hut It looks like hard luck all
the same." ,
"I see that woman in the village, nn
she asked me to say to you that ef you
ain't no objection she calculated to come
down an' look over what truck her pa
lef onto the derellck."
Moses paused and Nathaniel turned
with a livelier Interest than he had
shown In anything since the lawyer's
clerk had brought the restraining In
junction. "What did you tell her?"
"Waal." drawled Moses, "I told ner
that I reckoned you had no objections
enough to havln' anybody what was
lawin you a prowlin' about your prop
erty." As the sailor finished this speech
he looked serenely conscious of having
done his whole duty In a manner that
was above criticism, so that the vehe
mence of Nathaniel's rejoinder startled
him. "You go up to the village and
tell that lady that you made the big
gest mistake you ever made In your
life. Tell her no, hold on. I'll write
her a note." Full of this purpose he
rose and started for the village, leaving
his henchman In a state of bewilder
ment that could find no expression.
This was the note that Qulinby
wrote after an afternoon of laborious
"Miss Martllng. Dear Madam: I nave
Just been informed that a certain per
son that d)d not know what he was
talking about, and taking a good deal
upon himself, which I never authorised
him to do, and which I have been very

respectfully, Nathaniel Qulmliy."
Miss Martllng was nettled at Moses'
blunt rejection of her overture, find did
not doubt that It echoed the sentiments
of his master. So it waB with a harder
feeling than she had yet cherished
towards her legal adversary that she
went to the village postofllce the next
morning. When she received Qulmby's
letter and had rend it, nor feelings
toward the 'writer softened wonder-

."he's just as sweet and kind as he can
be. I wish it was the other nasty old
thing I was lighting."
Of course, she accepted the invita
tion and went to the Neck; and, equnl
ly of course, being a woman, she was
looking her prettiest. When Moses
saw her coming, he merely remarseu:
"There's a woman;" and took him
self out of the way, going to tne ex
treme end of the Neck, where he sat In
th sund and contemplated the ruined
timbers of the Phoebe. Nathaniel rose
und advanced to meet his visitor, con
scious of her grace and beauty, and his
awkwardness and freckled homeliness,
conscious of the fact that they were
adversaries at law, conscious of every
thing exceut that she was looking at
him with very kindly Interest.
"Mr. Qulmby. 1 got your letter, and I
couldn't do anything else till 1 had
come down to thank you."
""Now, don't say anything about that.
You're more than welcome, ma'am,
I'm sure," he interrupted. "Of course
I know how you must feel about it, and
it's proper." As he spoke hu led the
way to. tho wreck. Passing under
the stern of the vessel. Miss Martllng
looked up at the name, not quite as
bright as when painted, but still clear
ly legible, on the stern. "That looks
very natural," Bhe suld. "Poor fa
ther; nothing would suit him but to
have that name, though 1 didn't want
hi in to."
"I'm verv nretty name. 1 m sure.
responded her comnanlon, rather from
a desire to say something agreeable
than from any deep conviction.
"Do you think so?" she turned to
ward him with a smile. "I'm afraid you
Just say thut to be ilatterlng, Mr.'
"Why, no. ma'am," answered honest
Qulinby. "I nm not a good Judge of
names women's names, I mean, but
I thought that name had a sort of
i.iuiisnnt sound, as if it was the name
of somebody that the captain cared
"I thought you knew," she repeated
(though why she thought so was a
mystery), "that Is my name."
Cjulmby's heart Inside of him gave a
decided Jump, and to the very center of
it he rejoiced that he had praised the
name. Molly-Molly It Molly B
Martllng suddenly It occurred to
him that she had been an unobservant
fool not to have discovered long ago
that It was not only a very pretty, but
an entirely fascinating name. "Molly
B.. of Bangor," he read again. In a
voice that unconsciously tried to pro
nounce the words so as to bring out
all their latent music;, and the effort
must have been partly successful, for
the real Molly at his side blushed, and
then Qulmby blushed between all his
freckles, and thought that she must
think him a very rude and familiar
Silence between them now till they
reached the cabin hatch. Qulmby
stopped there and pointed down. "I
guess you'll find everything below
'bout as we found it. I'm afraid you'll
be disappointed some, for the things
were rattled around a good deal. I
don't think you can make much out of
the papers, but I had 'em out In the
sun to kind of dry them. You don't
want that I should go down with you
I Judge, but If you need anything or
want to know about anything, just call
out and I'll be around here some
where." With a look of gratitude for this deli
cate courtesy.Miss Martllng went below
and Qulmby took up his station on the
sunny sand beside the hull. But there
was no call for him and an hour went
by, during which the ycung woman
was having a quiet cry over the wreck
of those simple things which had once
been her father's and Nathaniel was
having a somewhat stormy session
vith his own conscience. He had told
his guest that everything in the cabin
was) about as they found It, but there
had been a mental reservation, for the
portrait that was even now reposing In
his Inner coat pocket. - He had sorrow
fully resolved to make a clean breast of
It when Mis. Martllng came out, a lit
r maia fnr :
tle red about the eyes, and, after a few
additional words of thanks, started
vlllageward. He had not found an op
portunity to tell her.
She, came again to look at some pa
pers, she said, and yet again, upon an
equally important errand. Each time
the litigants became better acquainted
and a mutual esteem and liking devel
oped, which in no way checked the
progress of the BUit which Miss Mart
llng had brought "for the principle of
In all their conversations there was a
tacit understanding that this subject
should not be discussed. There was
something entirely Impersonal about
the litigation. It was simply a ques
tion of rights which was to bo decided.
At last the day of the trial arrived,
when the momentous question of the
ownership of the schooner should be
settled by the court. Popular interest
in the matter did not extend to Middle
town, the county seat, but most of the
Inhabitants of Taggert's Station, es
pecially those who had lent a hand at
moving the hull, felt a personal con
cern In the decision.
Qulmby came, attended by Moses.
Miss Martllng was there In company
with her lawyer, but she sat apart from
her adversary, and, beyond a friendly
nod. they held no Intercourse together.
One case In court la very much like
another, and the cose of Martllng ver
sus Qulmby did not offer any remark

decision in favor of the plaintiff was

given and Nathaniel's counsel asked.
In an audible whisper. If he should give
"No," answered the client. "I won't
fight it. She can have the ship." Then,
without waiting tor the commisera
tion of the landlord of the tavern or any
of his Taggert Station friends, he set
off for the Neck, attended, as usual, by
the fulthful Moses.
Miss Martllng was congratulated, but
she was not satisfied. She had won and
was not triumphant. Hhe tried to tell
herself that Justice had been done, but
al the time she seemed to see Nathanll

crooked tree, and looking at the house
he had moved with such labor and
would have to move back. Then, too.
she considered the expense It was going
to be to him. It did seem a shame that
he sould be put to that cost.
Nathaniel and Moses were deen In
consultation over their defeat and Its
consequences, when the latter arose
with an expression of disgust on his
"There's that woman again. Looky
here, cap'n, 'tain't none o' my business,
but If I was you I'd be tarred If I'd let
her set a foot on the wreck." He
stumped away in a huff, but Nathaniel,
looking after him, .aid to himself:
"Well, I guess if you were me, Moses,
The Interview at. the start bid fair
to be embarrassing. At last the visitor
managed to say something about mak
ing an arrangement, being satisfied
now that the right had been eiiab
llshed, hoping that Mr. Qulmby would
not think hard of her, and more to the
ame purpose. After that Nathaniel

plucked up heart of grace and told her
that there was one thing he had held
back, always Intending to return It to
her, but always finding it impossible
to do so. With some BUch words he
carefully took the "hotograph from
the wrapping in which he had kept it,
and handed it to her.
"Why!" she exclaimed; then stopped.
"It was in the cabin, and I I thought
at first It was nn harm to keep it to
look at It, and then after you came.
It was not It was not easy to say any
thing." Then he Mrned and faced her
with tho energy oi' a sudden resolu
tion. "Miss Martllng, you've got the ship
and everything there Is in her; let me
tiRVe this picture."
Mis. Martllng looked down, at her
dress, at her hands, at the photograph
at everything except Nathaniel's
anxious c yes. Hut there was not a line
of displeasure in her fuce as she re
"Why. Mr. Qulmby. that was one
thing I wanted to talk with you about.
You might Just as well keen the Molly
U. as not, now that the principle of the
thing Is established."
But Nathaniel got hold of her hand,
photograph and all, and cried: "Miss
Martllng, don't you know that Is not
the Molly II. I want!"
An hour afterwards Moses, thinking
she had gone,, came to find Qulmby.
Then he went away again.
