THE 0RI8B PRESS VICTOR ROUSSEAU --SX . t&Ct: r Donald suddenly began to" tra'ds*. . "Davies, do you imagine that I am frazy ?" he • cried. !'Why, that's what' they told Masteramnl" "I think, sir, you ought Uo rest, 1 '' •aid Davies. "Meanwhile I am assran- -Jng command"." "'• "I'll have you court-martialed, Dairies!" cried Donald angrily. J ' . • .. Til face that, sir," returned the N SltUe middy. "You see, sir, It amounts to ;this: I.have only spoken- to Clouts •o :Ear. It would be better to lie down ~jgnletly than to-have the rest of "the anen know about this.. It would be i-jwary prejudicial to discipline, sir. And jta the morning, when yon feel ;differ- I shall resign the command - to , again." ' . : . '>"'•;' • Donald began to realize- the Impps- •ialbllity of convincing Davies:" 3 The •middy evidently believed that-hisi es- .'toosure In -the boat had turned his ibraln. It was useless to attempt to '*rgu'e. Of course he ought never to fcave spoken about the "monsters; ; Tint ithey had 'been so real, .so recent in Ills mind. However— . . -"Pavies, you may take command-un- jtll morning," said Donald. "Only-Te•member my warning about the iintches." ' . • . He turned toward-the-dpon Davies saluted him. Sam Clouts accompanied him to his cabin, below. "We put the lady in here, sfr," he •aid, pausing in -front of the door/ • "Quite right," answered Donald. •Yon may sling me a hammock in the .Officers' messroom." "Tve done It, sir," Clouts answered. A moment later-Donald found himself a prisoner on board his own ship. Tor, on making his exit. Clouts had locked the door. The action was done -with dispatch, and the key was turned Almost noiselessly, but Donald had -beard It. "; ...-'-• - He got Into his hammock and -tried to compose his mind, -but he discovered that the events of the day: had shaken him more than he had Imagined. Those awful memories recurred to him against his volition. Worst of all was the knowledge that precious time was passing while he was a prisoner. And he recollected that the monstrous horde, surrounding the sab- marine, no doubt, had already discovered that men were food. If Davies took off the hatches—perhaps he had already done so. His mind became obsessed by the threatened danger. He sprang from his hammock, trembling. He tried'to open the door. He set his shoulder against it. Outside lie heard the reedy notes of a mouth organ, and Sam Clouts suddenly 'stood before him. :• ' Donald had an impulse to appeal to the man, but at once he Saw its futility. "Tell -Mr. Davies that he is on no account to take offl the hatches," he said. 1 Sam Clouts saluted him and calmly locked the door again. Outside the strains of the mouth organ were heard once more. Evidently Clouts r. instructions to .remain at ihe .curses of men, tfielr agonizing cries, the thudding falls of heavy bodies. • But Donald could not lose with Ida's life at.stake. The monster's struggles grew feebler. Donald flung it from him, and heard it* shuffle out'of the room and into the darkness of the passage/;-' Then.he knew that fear ruled among these sea-beasts as upon land. «;•; Suddenly Davies burst Into the cabin. . ."Paget! I've come to you!" he cried hysterically. "You spoke the truth, sir, and I thought, you were mad! -I opened the hatches, and they're ' all 'over the.ship, sir!. I've comb to. dip withiyonr ?•' ..'.-...'. Another man ran panting up to. .them, It seemed Estrange afterward, when Donald recalled It, how the 'three seemed to be aware of each other's presence-in the little cabin. It was Sam Clouts. • "They've got us, slrl" he cried. VI 'fought to the end, but the rest are. In the sea, and I'm the only one left I Tva locked the - entrance to the conning tower, but it's only a question of minutes, sir!" - • "" Donald could hear the monsters straining at the-door. He felt sure that the steel plating, thin as it was, w.ould yield; not to the sudden exercise of any muscular force, but to the silent, steady pressure of the. heavy, bodies. The door creaked arid groaned under thejmpact. (To fc* ooattMMt) Oonht',.new.military at- tache to the- Swedish, legation 'In Washington, recently^ arrived In this country.
