THE DAILY £REE PRESS •~ TEen man? 7 muttered Donald, gripping the anas of his chair. The madman's picture had 'become dread- Solly real to'htm. "Other .; bodies would '-follow, the scouts, Donald. They wouldn!f be nnite 'adapted to dry land at first. •Tbey'dV make their .way' along the river beds.' They'd swarm up the Hudson, the Rhine, the Severn, the Mis- slsslppi. That's what we did, find *ven* 'today we -haven't got very far from the river Banks. Well, they'd •rest and recuperate, eating the fish they found, until the supply became exhausted. Then—' 1 . . ... "Good Lord!" gasped'Donald, And »then the-.reaction came.. Of course Mastennan was raving mad, the maddest, member of the March Hares', club. What a fool he had been to let the old.fellow's dismal prophecies get on his nerves! He leaned forward and placed 'his .hand on Masterman's knee. "Did you go to the navy office with the idea of telling that to the' secretary?" he asked. '1 did, sir," answered Uasterman. "Then, if I may say so without giving offense, it is a mercy that you failed to secure an interview with Mm," said Donald. "Why, Miistermau —er—you,know how hard .it is to convince anyone of the truth of uny- thins a little out of the ordinary;" He was feeling his way carefully now, to avoid hurting the; old fellow. "Why, .Masterman, if you were to make such a suggestion as that at the navy office, they'd shut you up as a—as not quite light," he said. "I know it, my boy," the captain answered. "I've been called cruzy over since I saw the sea serpent off Aberdeen.. I have to thank MacBeard for that Ever since he learned that I was on the track of something big, lie has been trying to queer me. And when I discovered mammalian life on • the sea floor, I was called an impostor, which hurt more. But as I see It, lieutenant, a man can only be true to himself,. and I. stand for truth and fair play, moderation and courteous dealings, not mudsliriging and invective, and calling names, like that pigeon-brained, pot-faced, porous plaster; MacBeard." "But at least you won't .mention these matters to people who—who haven't open minds," pleaded Donald. "JJo, sir. I wash my hands of them all. That's why 1 have told you about this. . But if you don't listerC if you don't warn the world—" "I?" exclaimed D.onald. "Good Lord, Masterman, you can't suppose that I am able to stake my professional career upon the retailing of such a story! -'Even supposing it trim, the thing won't happen in' .our time. Why should a world epoch terminate In this particular generation and another begin?" ..Masterman leaped out of his chair and''.stood beside the lieutenant. He. 'twiiied his fingers convulsively in his long. beard, and there was a look of fanaticism upon his face. "Because it has already -terminated and begun," he shouted. "Because I hive-felt them'." • • • . '• "Seen them, you mean!" "Pelt them, sir! Monsters, between the Shetlands and the Faroes, Just where the continental shelf rises to a hundred feet—feet, sir, riot fathoms—and then sinks to Somehow Donald Imagined that Tie had been behind the door for a long time, and that his entrance had been prompted by • curiosity, >so^ "uncontrollable that it overcame^; all sense of shame'or fear of discovery. •'. , "MacBeard!"' ejaculated the captain quickly. ''Donald, my lad—Donald-^-" He stopped'and looked at Donald in- a dazed way.'' He put his.hands to his head, a look of bewilderment succeeded that of anger, .and he sat down again heavily. His features were suffused with blood. Donald sprang toward him. : "Captain Mnsterman 1 Are you-ill?" he cried, shaking the old man by the shoulder., ... MacBeard- came into the room and stood beside him, looking down at the captain. Donald was conscious, even in that moment, of a strong personal antagonism toward this man. "I am afraid he.has had a seizure," said MacBeard. Cnpt. Jonathan Roderick Masterman looked into the lieutenant's face with an expression of'pntlietic helplessness, smiled, sighed very deeply, stretched out his legs, and died. (To be continued.)
