"After the ship bad bepn hwIiirIiik to

from the Vail, or Turkish governor of
the province. I to was In mil Turkish

"Ward had orten exhibited his skill

"So the officer of the deck sent for
"Ward to see if he could pick any toll;

with his Turkish jokes.

Francisco, attended by his suite, on
the following afternoon. The Vail was
it good looking Turk with a. shrewd
pyo In his head, and he was the quin
tessence and tintype of courtesy and
"He spoke only In Turkish, and of
course (lieutenant Ward had to bo
summoned' to Interpret his talk to the
Admiral. At the gangway the Vail
expressed his appreciation of the no
bility of Admiral Klrklnnd as exhib
ited by the admiral's gracious Invita
tion, and got off a lot of other taffy
like that, which Lieutenant Ward
faithfully translated. Then the Vail
was conducted aft to the adinlruPs
cabin, where, with the assistance of
Dragoman Ward, the bluff old sea
dog and the Turkish governor settled
down for a talk.
"'ow, I ought to say that Admiral
Kirkland didn't have a bit of use In
the world for u Turk, and he was also
pretty sore at. this time over the Ar
menian massacres. He would havu
liked to have permission from this
isoverninent to waltz Into the harbor
i'r Constantinople and to blow that
town Hat to the ground, and, what's
more, he often snld so right out loud,
so's he could bo heard. So that ho
didn't feel particularly honored over
this visit ot the Vail man, big gun as
the latter was.
"The Vail, Admiral Kirkland and
Lieutenant Ward sat down nt one ot
the admiral's tables for a talk.
Heart to Heart Talk.
" 'Ward,' said Admiral Kirkland to
his Interpreter, 'you can tell that
heady-eyed Individual across the table
he. looks as if he had murder In his
heart, like all the rest of his tribe
that It 1 had my way about It 1U1 keel
haul every blithering mother's sou of a
Turk that wears hair; you tell him
that, Ward,' and the admiral gazed
as graciously as you like at. the pleased
" 'The august admiral,' translated
"Ward to the bowing Vail, 'desires me
to tender to your excellency the assur
ances of his most devoted and solicit
"Hereupon the Vail bowed his
thanks and smiled.
"'Did you tell the curmudgeon that,
Ward?' Inquired the bluff old admiral
--'Hod MM' Kirkland, as the sailors
affectionately called him. "All right.
Now you can just tell him that 1C
these massacres continue, I'll be swuz
zled If I won't some day forget my or
ders, or,, at any rate, get away from
cable communication, and find some
pretext to hammer a few Turkish
towns. Tell him that, Ward tell the
black-browed runt that, lieutenant, If
you'll be so kind,' and the admiral,
with his face wreathed in gracious,
mellow smiles, bowed respectfully In
the direction of the Vail.
" 'The most august admiral,' trans
lated Lieutenant Ward, 'desires me to
convey to your excellency the hope
that your present station Is one 6t un
ending happiness for you and your
or family, and to express the earnest
i gold Present

"Which the Vail received with mur
mured expressions or gratitude.
Not Translated Literally.
"Oh, It was pretty good talk, that
talk of the admiral's and the Vall's.
Ward said afterward that It was tor
ture for him, he wanted so fiercely lo
yell, to roll on the deck and shout,
"With a countenance that was the
very picture of amiability, the line old
admiral said the most terrible things
right to the Vall's face, and pretend
ing that he expected Ward to trans
lute them just that way. Now, Admir
al Kirkland wasn't exactly what you
could call a piratically profane man,
but ho did permit himself to drift Into
few harmless swear words as ho
pleasantly conversed with the Vail.
"The conversation went on In this
way for about halt an hour, and then
the Vail rose and, with ninny expres
sions of nppreelnllon and gratitude for
the good time that had been given to
htm, ho departed from the ship.
"On the following duy lieutenant
Ward went ashore on some personal
business, lie ran smack Into the Vail
a. short dlstunce from tno Vall's pal
ace. The Vail beckoned pleasantly to
Ward to approach him.
" 'My boy,' said the Vull, In perfect,
liquid, burbling English the most
perfect Kngllsh for a Turk that AVard
had ever heard 'My boy, will you be
good enough to say to the gracious
Admiral Kirkland for mo that J regard
you 110L only ns an Interpreter of In
estimable value, but as a gifted diplo
matist as well?"
