He snatched up Ida and began p-oping toward the metallic sheathing which admitted air from above into the torpedo room. ' ; "I think I can get the tube apart, sir," Clouts volunteered. It seemed an eternity before Donald heard a section of the metal plate rattle upon the floor. "We'll have to jump, sir I" Clouts panted. 'Til go down first and catch you. Pass along the lady when you hear me call." : . ' Donald heard nlm leap into the torpedo room below. A moment later his Voice came up the funnel. "I'm ready tor the lady, sir!" he called. Donald raised Ida In his arms and lowered her throughithe tube. "After you, sir," said Davies. "I have assumed command, Davies," Donald replied. "Very well,. sir," said the middy quietly, and descended. Donald followec him. As he jumped for the floor of the torpedo room, he heard the scrap- Ing sound of flippers on the floor above. But the creaking of the conning tower.• door hod ceased. ; . "We're saved!"- cried Donald. "Da- yies, they, -can't force the conning tower. Of course not. That souad is me or two of the beasts wlio have :ome down the hatches. ' You closed ..ihem?" ' . "No, sir. There wasn't time." "Then they-tried to get through the . -conning" tower, - and hadn't reason - - enoiigb to know that they "could get through the hatches!" cried Donald ' -joyfully. . ' "Their reason -won't-'get them down the tube,, sir, unless they've got bodies as slim as ours/' said Clouts. "And they, feel like—like barrels, sir," he lidded.' ... Overhead, 'the. scraping continued, 'sometimes approaching the tube and then' receding.. - Presently '.there came. the sound of a commotion. Donald Inferred that .the sea; devils- had found .i-lh'e'one-that.he hadrinjured, and that they were satiating their:horrible can- attjalistic. instincts.: He heard-a body 'dragged' this way' and that, and a' flreadful rending.

I was thinking—" "That they have no sense of smell.". "Yes, sir." . ' "And little hearing. , At,least, that _ihey distinguish sounds only as vibrations." "Yes, sir. And of course their sense, of sight must be extremely limited. And so, roughly, that leaves them only the use of taste and touch, but probably developed far above our own." "We'll beat them, Davies." "H plat's true as they can't" hear : much, I think, if I might, sir, I'll play 9. bit on my mouth organ," said Clouts. "Just a low, humming, sir." . "Bight, Clouts," answered. : .Donald. But simultaneously with the first notes there came from above a singular sound. It seemed to be very far • rway; it was a single, mellow note, the B of a violin, and exquisitely true. It•.might have been, a distant warning buoy anchored amid the tides. • ; "What's that", DavitesT'; asked Don- 'ff£.

' He.was a-thief. He did not steal.big.things, but little ones, and. everyone knows that, this is more damning socially. .... They called it kleptomania; and let him resign. But it was not- kleptomania; It was theft. MacBeard's ca reer was finished. The only club thai would admit him to membership was the Inventors':—and that only because the furious bickerings of its members had compelled. the passage 'of-a^ruU that there'should be no blackballing Anyone could join the Inventors' club but only inventors wanted to.
