Every morning, before dawtt, be was out In the dinghy, sometimes returning with a catch, sometimes not. Bates stayed behind, smoking interminably, in the shade of the bridge, unobtrusively keeping an eye on thtaga. Ithere Was no longer any iretense of association between the others. All were tense, waiting, While overhead, in a corner of the chart-room, the tinkering with the radio apparatus went endlessly on. Mary kept to herself—the monotony was wearing on her, too—but she did not go near Dirk again. The invalid's ankle was so much Improved that he was able to be carried on deck, and there he and an amiable steward played bridge\ for hours, on end. De Loma ..bad gone to bis stale- room tbe night .the necklace bad taken its unexpected plunge, overboard and came out only rarely. Louise was the restless one now. She had developed a savage temper and .lashed at all who crossed her path, even Bruce. Deprived ot -the j services pf a beauty .parlor and still wearing the same gown in which she had come aboard, she began to look less the siren and more the shrew. That night—-the night?; of the fourth day^-Jtfary lay .in 'Jbter Ibed staring wild-eyed intone darkness.! Sleep seemed farther away than the hot stars that hung low and burning bright in a sky that pressed down smotberingly' just above her porthole window. •She tried to shake it off, but the sense of impending disaster was heavy on her heart.: The crowded (events of the last few-days—Dirk's it with De Loma, her anxiety for the necklace, his fiery resentment at being brought aboard the yacht, and then this .unforeseen mishap— had-been almost too much for her nerves. ' ' • - \ '•' ,,; It was breathlessly not. Mary slipped on a thin black silk coat and stepped out on deck. Through the open portholes of Mr. Jupiter's stateroom came the sound of bis heavy breathing. He, at .least, .could "sleep, and she was thankful for that. There was a faint breath of air— scarcely more than a stirring..-She stood gratefully a moment in the black shadow cast by the upper deck, almost invisible in her black wrap. Back along the deck a stateroom door opened and someone stepped out. on deck. Mary hesitated, uncertain whether to turn back. The other moved to the rail and stood there, apparently unaware of her .existence. Tbe girl stepped further back into tbe .shadows and .stood silent, waiting for him to go away. Who could it be? She tried to estimate what door it waa he bad come 1 from—Louise's door came first, then Bruce's, then De Loma's. He was not tall enough Jp be Bruce. He must be The Fly. longer then glided «w*y down the deck so softly that she WM not aware ot it antil he had gb«k that curious! Without stopping to think, she kicked off her slippers and slipped silently along the wall after htm. At the first gangway she climbed .qulckb up to tbe sun deck and hurried along to tftke refuge in the shadows under the lifeboat perched there. Peering cautiously over the edge she taw hltn leaning over the taff-rail, looking .down at the little dinghy bobbing about in the uneasy sea. "Looks tike a storm coming up." A voice just beneath her caused her to Jump. The Fly also must have been startled, for he swung about Quickly. Out of the shadows almost under Mary's nose the sailor on deck watch appeared and strolled over to the rail to Join him. "Storm, eh?" He turned back to staring at the sea. The sailor apparently was lonesome for someone to talk to, and was not to be easily repulsed. "Yes, sir, It certainly looks like we were in for a good one. See that black patch over there? That's one forming or I miss my guess. You .can actually see them form out here semetimes. The breeze has ;one down, too, and that's always a sign. And the barometer's dropping. Don't believe It will be much of a blow coming from that direc- ion, though, i sure wouldn't want :6 See much wind, with us stuck up here on this reef like this." "How are you.'=c6mirig on that radio?" the other asked crossly, as f making the youth beside 'him directly responsible for it. But the-sailor .continued .cheerful. "Sparks told me there wasn't a chance to .get it working. Somebody's jimmed it-proper.' : 'He .thinks we-'Jl just .have to'stick..it out here until some fishing .party comes along, or' the patrol comes around to check up on the light. Captain said we'd -wait another day and then if no one showed up he'd send ,a 'couple of men along the keys in "See? What did 1 tell you!" the sailor pointed. "Here she comes. It won't be a bad one becauie you can see the edge of it there along the horizon, but it will be plenty damp while it lasts. Better got under cover, sir. I've got to get my oilskins." The fly stood where be was .after the other had gone, staring at the rolling-up mass of cloud. Suddenly he snapped his fingers, straightened with sudden decision and she saw htm take something from hia pocket. There was a sharp click, then he melted along tho .deck in noiseless way he had of stray cloud flying the same come. A wisp ahead of the storm blotted out the moon just then. Mary scrambled from her hiding place and ran back along the top deck. There waa still light enough to see that the deck below her was deserted, What ought she to do? Rouse Bates? Was it really the click of a cartridge chamber she had heard, or might it have been the snapping Shut of a cigaret case? Hardly that —for the only other smoker on board was Bates, and that young man would have swallowed his available supply ot tobacco rather than share it with The Fly, While she hesitated the first drops of rain hit her and before she could move the storm broke. The wind lashed at her clinging skirts which were soaked in a moment. She fled down tho gangway to the comparative shelter of the lower leek. Breathless, she leaned against :he bulkhead and pushed the wet hair out of her eyes. The "Gypsy" was stirring uneasily .on the reef as the sea and wind pushed and tugged at her. As Mary felt her way along she passed Mr. Jupiter's window. His snore sounded even above the storm, but what was that other sound? Like someone stumbling against a .chair. The Fly was In there. She.knew t. She could feel his presence. In :he darkness of the room he must >e able to see her head silhouetted the : dinghy." "You mean you could make it to Key West— 90 miles — in that?" :De Loma pointed down at the small tethered rowboat bumping awkwardly about beneath the stern. "Sure. If the weather Tield good. When you got tired of rowing you could Just beach her on .a key .and take a rest. They're only a few .miles apart And farther in you'd be bound to pick up abashing party that wo^dta^e you.. \oa In to get help." c? -£ "Why hasn't someone tried that before this ?'* De Loma demanded. "We've been out on this reef in this damned sun for four days." "Well, you see, this is the only good boat. That cockleshell .up there (Mary held her breath as they turned to look up at the lifeboat behind which she was concealed) isn't any good — that is, for much of a row. And we'd have to take the only two pairs of oars we have. If a storm should come -up and the party had to get over to Port Jefferson it would be ticklish business in that tub." Crouched under the boat, she had been too intent on the conversation to notice the little black cloud of which the sailor had spoken, which had grown until it covered halt the western sky. An occasional spurt of wind ruffled the sea, which otherwise lay glasslly quiet under the moon. • • • 'TTHB two men apparently became •*• conscious of the approaching storm at almost the same moment. ; against tbe opening. She turned 'and ran blindly back along the deck. . She must get someone." Where was Bates' room? She ,had never thought to find out'and npi she wanted to know so desperate!^, •c Bruce. She turned and pushed '. open'his door. --i'. * "Bruce! Bruce! Get up! Sonwjv one's in your father's stateroom^. ; "What?" Roused suddenly fro® sleepy Bruce sat .up. so quickly hSt almost knocked her over. "ii-'-J'.SS ''The Flyj He's in your "father^ room. Qulfck!" .-" :.She had hated Bruce, but she could have kissed him for the quickness with which he grasped the situation. Leaping from bed, he fumbled an instant on the table, and was out the door. "Stay there!" he commanded, pushing her aside\ Mary was after him, though, before he could take half a dozen strides. As she rounded the bulkhead which hid Mr. Jupiter's door from that of Bruce she heard the heavy impact of two bodies, and two shots—so close .together they seemed almost one. Something pitched headlong onto the deck at her feet. For the space of a breath she stood still, too frightened to move, afraid to step for fear of the unknown. "Bruce!" she screamed .suddenly, terrified by the stillness. As she started forward, a pi inging. form came out of the blackne- s, struck her and hurled her boti»v asMe.

The plane is one of a fleet of 18 regularly flying the course and, if experiments with it proves satisfactory, it is likely that the mechanical pilot will be installed on the others. End Piles Quick No Salvsc— No Cutting Your itching, bleeding, protruding piles will go when you actually remove the cause—bad blood circulation in the weak, flabby parts—and not one minute before. Salves or cutting can't do this—an internal remedy must be used, HEM-ROID, prescription of Dr.- J. S. Leonhardt, succeeds because it stimulates the circulation, drives out congested blood, heals and restores the almost dead parts. HEM-ROID has such a wonderful record right in this City, that Ward&Son say one bottle of HEM-ROID Tables must end your pile agony or money back.—Adv. Ball Carrying by Center Brings Row in Grid Game LIBERTY, Mo.(^)-A play in which the William Jewell quarterback received the ball from center and' immediately handed it back enlivened a game here with Westminister college.

It is. a personal service, and only Century employees handle shipments. Packages are called for by the company representatives, . shipped in the company's planes, and delivered by company employees. Ear and Eye Aids WASHINGTON— Through radio beacon signals, sent out in the form of dots and dashes along the correct course of an airway, a pilot has been able in the past to keep on the course by listening through headphones. A recent radio development .also enables him to see if he is on the right track in the dark. It is a vibraitng reed, radio actuated, which vibrates evenly when the pilot is right, and unequally when he is ;off the course. Pets Replaced KNOXVILLE, Tenn.-John L. Callaway's wire-haired fox terrier disappeared fro mhis home several months ago. Then Mrs. Callaway's Persian cat died under the wheels of a car. Gloom settled upon the Galloway household.
