Murphy irjeu to uraw nis own Kine but before before he could do so Keogh plunged at blm again, this time cutting blm.'on the cheek and making a frightful gash across the' back of 'the right wrist. Tbe blood spurted over both of the desperate men. The crew bad formed a ring about them, and,VM looking on unmoved by what they saw. Murphy at last grasped bis ownknlfe, and, springing upon Keogb, drove the blade up to the bilt In bieleft breast.
