The Ella still lay In the Delaware. ;
half a mile or so from her original
moorings. She carried the usual riding
lights—a white one In the bow, an
other at the stern, and the two ver
tical red lights which showed her not .
under command. In reply to repealed
signals, wc were unable to rouse the
watchman. 1 had brought an electric ;
flash with me. and by its aid we found
a rope ladder over the side, with a ;
small boat at its foot.
Although the boat Indicated the pres- .
ence of the watchman on board, we i
made our way to tbe deck without 1
challenge. Here McWhirter suggested
that the situation might be disagree- j
able were the man to awaken and get !
at us with a gun.
We stood by tbe top of the ladder. |
therefore, and made another effort to :
rouse him. "Hey. watchman!" I call- '
ed. And McWhirter. in a deep bass, !
sang lustily, "Watchman, what of tbe j
night?" Neither of us made any per- j
ceptible impression on tbe silence and !
gloom of the Ella.
McWhirter grew less gay. The de- i
serted decks of the ship, her tragic bis- i
tory. ber Isolation, tbe darkness, .
which my small flash seemed only to !
intensify, ail bad their effect on him. '
"It's tot my goat," he admitted. "It
smebs lil.e :i tomb."
"Don't be au ass."
"Turn the light over tbe side and see
if we fastened that boat. We dou't
want to lie left here Indettuitely."
"That's folly. Mac." I said, but I
obeyed him. "The watchman's boat
Is there, so we"—
But he caught me suddenly by the
arm aud shook ree.
"My God!" he said. "What is that
over there?"
It was a moment before my eyes aft
er the flashlight could discern any
thing in the darkness. Mac was point
ing forward. When 1 could see Mac
was ready to laugh at himself.
"This tomb has sure got my goat,
he said sheepiAily. "I thought I saw
something dt;»k around tbe corner of
that building, but 1 think it was a ray
from a searchlight on one of those
"The watchman, probably." 1 said
quietly. But my heart beat a little
faster. "The watchman takiug a look
at us and gone for his gun."
1 thought rapidly. If Mac bad seen
anything. 1 did not believe it was-the
watchman. But there should be a
watchman on board—in the forward
house, probably. I gave Mac my re
volver and put. the light in my pocket.
I might want both hands that night.
I saw better without the flash, and.
It Wa* Covered With Dirk Brown'
guideil partly by the bow light, partly
by my knowledge of the yacht, 1 led
the way across ibe deck. The forward
house was closed aud locked, aud uo
knocking produced any indication of
life. The alter we found noi
only locked, but barred across with
strips of wood nailed into place. The
forecastle was likewise closed. It was
a dead ship.
No tiguie reappearing to alarm him,
Mac took tue droving out of his
pocket and focused the flashlight on It.
"This i cross by the mainmast." he
said—"that wou'.d be where?"
"Hight behind you. there.''
He walked to tilt; mast, and examined
carefully around its base. There was
nothing there, and even now I do not
know to what that cross alluded, un
less poor Schwartz!
"Then this other one—forward, you
call it. don't you? Suppose we locate
All expectation of the watchman
having now died, we went forward ou
the port side to the approximate loca
tion of the cross. This beiug in the
neighborhood where Mac bad thought
he saw something move, we approach
ed with extreme caution. But nothing
more ominous was discovered than the
port lifeboat, nothing more ghostly
heard than the occasional creak with
which it rocked in its davits.
The lifeboat seemed to be indicated
by tbe cross. It swung almost shoul
der high on MeWhlrter. We looked
under and around it. with a growing
feeling that we had misread the sig
nificance of the crosses, or that the
Fillister record extended to a time be
fore the "she devil" of the Turner line
was dressed in white and turned into
a lady.
I was feeling underneath the boat,
with a sense of absurdity that Me-
Whlrter put Into words. "I oul.v hope."
he said, "that the watchman does not
wake up now and see us. He'd be
justified In filling us with lead or put
ting us in atraltjackets."
But 1 had discovered something.
"Mac." I said, "some one has been at
this boat within the last few minutes.''
"Why 7"
"Take your revolver and watch the
deck. "One of the tarecas"—
"What's that?"
"One of the water barrels has been
upset, nnd the plug is out. It is leak
ing Into the boat. It Is leaking fast,
and there's only a gallon or so in the
bottom. Give me the light."
The contents of the boat revealed the
truth of what 1 had said. The boat
wag in confusion. Its cover had been
thrown back, and tins of biscuit, bail
ers. boatliooks and extra rowlocks were
jumbled together in confusion. The
barecas lay on itM side, antl its plug
Iwd been either knocked or drawn ouc.
MeWhlrter was for turning t« In
spect the boat, but I ordered him stern
ly to watch the deck. He was lncilued
to laugh at my caution, which, he
claimed, was a quality In me he had
not suspected. He lounged against the
roil neur me and iu spite of his chaff
kept a keen enough lookout.
The barecas of water were lashed
amidships. In the bow and ateru were
! small air tight compartments, and in
j the stem was also a small locker from
j which the biscuit tins had been taken.
! I was about to abandon my search
| when 1 sow something gleaming In the
; locker aud reached in aud drew It out.
It appeared to be au ordinary white
abeet. but its presence there was curi
ous. 1 turned the light on. It was
covered with dark brown stains.
Even now the memory of that sheet
I turns me 111. I shook it out. and Mac
jat my exclamation came to me. It
! was not a sheet, at all—that is, not a
1 whoie one. It was a circular piece of
i white cloth, on whi -h In black were
| curious marks, a six pointed star pre
dominating. There were o(hers-a
crescent, a crude attempt to draw
what might be either a dog or a lamb
and a cross. From edge to edge It
; was s men red with blood.
Of what followed just after both
' McWhirter and 1 are vague. There
seemed to be simultaneously a yeli of
! fury from the riggiug overhead and
the crash of a falling body on the deck
near its. Then we were closing with
a kicking, biting, screaming thing that
bore me to the ground, extinguishing
I the little electric flash, and that, rising
suddenly from under me. had Mc-
Whirter in the air and almost over
board before I caught him. So dazed
i were we by the onslaught that the
thing—whatever it was—could have es
caped and left us none the wiser. But.
although it eluded us lu the darkness,
it did not leave. It was there, whim
pering to itself, searching for sonie
| thing-the sheet. As I steadied Mac it
passed me. I caught at !t. Immedi
ately the straggle began all over again.
But this time we had tbe advantage
i and kept it. After a battle that seem
ed to last all night, and that was ac
tually fought all over that part of the
deck, we held the creature subdued,
and Mac, getting a hand free, struck a
; match.
It was Charlie Jones.-
That, after all, is the story. Jones
was a madman, a homicidal maniac
of the worst type. Always a mad
man, the homicidal element of his dis
ease was recurrent and of a curious
nature. He thought himself a priest
of heaven, appointed to make ghastly
sacrifices at certain signals from on
high. The signals 1 am not sure of;
he turned taciturn after bis capture
and would not talk. 1 am inclined to
think that a shooting star, perhaps in
a particular quarter of the heavens,
was his signal. This is distinctly pos
sible and is made probable by the
stars which he had painted with tar
on his sacrificial robe.
The story of the early moruing of
: Aug. 12 will never be fully known:
but much ot it. in view of our knowi
; edge, we were able to reconstruct.
Thus—Jones ate his supper that night,
a mild and well disposed individual.
: During the afternoon before he had
j read prayers for the soul of Schwartz,
in whose departure he may or may not
| have had a part-I am inclined to
, think not. Jones construing his misslou
j as being one to remove the wicked and
the oppressor, aud Schwartz hardly
i coming under either classification.
He was at the wheel from midnight
| until 4 In the morning on the night
jof the murders. At certain hours we
i believe that he went forward tn the
| forecastle head and performed, clad in
his priestly robe, such devotions as his
disordered mind dictated. It Is my
idea that he looked, al these times, for
a heavenly signal, either a meteor or
some strange appearance of ihe heav-
I ens. It was known that he was a
j poor sleeper and spent much time at
; night wandering around.
On the night of the crimes it Is prob
nble that lip performed his devotions
early, and thou got the signal. This
is evidenced by Singleton's finding the
ax against the captain's door 1 ♦fore
midnight. He had evident : y been dis
turbed. We believe that he intended
to kill the captain and Mr. Turner, but
made a mistake in the rooms. He
clearly intended to Uiil the Danish girl.
Several passages in his Bii.le. marked
with a red cross, showed his inflamed
hatred of loose women, and be be

little Talks on Health and Hygiene
by Samuel G. Dixon, M. D.. LL. D.,
Commissioner of Health
Rod yard Kujilinj; mnkesone of his
characters in a military tal-o say "A
soldier is no better than his t'oPt."
The man or woman whose occupation
or duties require them to stand or walk
for h greater portion of the day come
to a certain extent in the saanu rate
■gory —t'liev are no better than their
'i'his is not alone due to their la k
of mobility, but to the over present
strain on the nervous system when the
feet are partially incapacitated. Any
one who lias suffered from tlie break
ing down of the arches of the feet can
appreciate 'how extremely painful this is
and how serious a handicap. Cases of
this sort are of an extreme character.
What people do not appreciate is
that- worn down heels which throw the
weight of the body to one sido or other
of the foot may cuuse a continuous
strain w'hen walking or stamliug. Manv
people who are particularly careful in
the care of their hands pay less at
tention to their other extremities.
Our modern shoemakers are turning
out. better shoes than have ever 'been
made in the history of the world. Thev
are less clumsy and more serviceable.
Unfortunately, however, the dictates
of fashion have led women and men to
wear footgear which distorts the natural
slhape of the foot.
| The Roman sandal which permitted
the toes to assume their natural po
sition and allowed each one of the five
jto bear ils ortion of the weight and
give spring to Uhe step was obviously
| more sensible than tilie French heeled
pump. The latter throws the weight
of the body 011 the ball of t'he foot and
> his causes a strain to keep the body
balanced. Phis may be an unconscious
action, but it is nevertheless extremely
tiresome. It is possible owing to the
craftsmanship of present dav shoemak
ers for both men and women to secure
neat, trim-looking footgear u-hic'h is
sensible in shape.
To 'be comfortalbly shod is no small
factor in the preparation for one's dailv
work and will prove a material aid in
increasing individual efficiency.
