Meanwhile Harry had found Messrs

cently drawing a rug over the girl
asleep on deck Harry, with starting
eyes and reeling brain, stumbled Into
bis stateroom and fell In a stupor upon j
the floor. Messrs Badger and Marks i
bad made a cleannp.
At dawn Cecil sent the girl below, t

Cecil at the earliest opportunity ob

a (VTVC of card* and with them retired
to his stateroom. He had previously
sodced that all the cards carried In
stock had hacks of similar design and
color. He now proceeded to carefully
mark the deck he had purchased. His
intent was to meet the enemy with
the enemy's own weapons, and be felt
no stain upon the honor beside which
life was to him a trivial thing.
It was a matter of slight difficulty to
engage the complacent swindlers ID a
game, very early in which Cecil sub
stituted hia marked cuds for the deck
in play. At the end of that game Cecil
had iu bW possession the three times

crooks were Hturlng at each other in

fully His gloomy glance rested upon
Cecil's chair, and with a snarl of fury
he seined upon the deck for which Cecil
had substituted his marked cards.
"He done us. the cheat! He swltch
-h1 the deck on us!" Mr Marks hissed.
His features grew livid, and he leaned
forward to whisper with venomous
"Oh, Harry!" she cried and nestled In
emphasis. "Hut we will get the money

get well of wliat will ail him!"
Quietly Cecil returned the money to
Harry Allium. who was too complete

even surprise. Any thanks* that he
might have attempted to utter were cut
short by Cecil's cold comment.
"You have lieen a silly child and »
brutal cad. y' Know," he told him for
his soul's good and left him.
Cecil soon understood that his self
assumed duty as special providence
was not yet finished He chanced to
overhear, as she unconsciously spoke
them aloud, words which revealed the
acbe in Ethel's heart.
"His folly ;;nd crime my love would
forgive," she bad manned, "if I could
again think him a man!"
And Cecil went away troubled. Long
pondering evolved but one possible
plan, and he sighed.
"It's a beastly job. but I've got to
see the thing through.*' be thought
"It will mean happiness for the little
girl if be has a spark of manhood in
him. It's worth the chance."
Suddenly he smiled with gentle whim

On deck Cecil found Ethel Ashton
and Induced her to walk with him,
though the girl seemed listless and
weary to the point of exhaustion. In

sulking bitterly, and toward this spot
he led the way U'hen near and lu

caught the Elrl In his arms and. despite
her amazed •nd angry struggles, kissed
her passionately In a moment Harry
bad covered the distance between tbem

gan savagely, and Cecil laughed mock
"Oh. von." he said. "Don't bother

straight for Cecil's face
The Wow staggered him. and a dark
blotch appeared on his cheek, but with

"Oh. Harry!" she cried, and nestled

In bis stateroom Cecil gravely In

the pupils of his eyes contracted. Re

door behind htm silently open, two
crouching figures glide in and the door

In the hand of one was a vicious knife,
and the secoud man was raising a

The Case Against the Rat

l)lil Hameliu Town is no more to be
pitied than our own great cities.
To be sure we do not have them
biting our babies in their cradles or

the depredations of rats in every one
of our large cities.

Miss Nichols. Hats are great travelers
