MacBeard. eyed Donald with amuse- -jwent. '1 offered you your life, not the -iothers," he answered. "One man re- ttnrnlnf? with 8 story like Masterman's !woc)fl be called a lunatic; two would kxwaken doubt; three would be fatal." And then his eyes fell -upon Ida. . She was 'standing at Donald's side, *» hrave and defiant as he, and their •«yes met And at that Instant some- Ihing happened to .the professor that sipset all his calculations, something at •which he would have scoffed as entirely Incredible. He fell- In lore for the first time in Ms life. Science, has never, succeeded in penetrating the mystery, of leve. It Is not known why one man falls in love at fifty and another at nineteen; one at Bight and another after five years of matinees and supper, parties with the •object of his adoration. MncBeard did -Bottaow why it had happened to him, but '.he. Isnew. that - it had happened. And' with it there came the universal instinct to display his superiority to .the man at Ida's side,. In .whom he, : lntuitiveiy sensed his ; rival. . ,' s "You've played your cards pretty *adly," he sneered. "You. had the se«ret In your hands, and you surrendered It to me. You think'a little more Alghly of old Masterman now, don't 'Ton blackguard!" cried Donald • egaln, clenching his fists. MacBeard stepped-out of. range has- .tay.. He dislike^) .violence, partly as *n nttempted violation of the principle of .the conservation of energy, but principally because he was a coward. •It Is all our lives for the missing jrart of the manuscript, or none," said Donald. j| MacBeard rubbed "his hands together.. In that infernal light he seemed hardly less monstrous than the creatures.about him. " ' "You will think ^differently in a few moments," he answered. And taking the implement that he had used before, into his hands, Se struck another note. Instantly the resilient wall closed in nbout them, and, with the same slow, steady pressure, they were urged forward,..Clouts in the lend. The note Bounded again;" they stopped. Clouts was now immediately in front of the sacrificial knife of bone. And, very slowly, he began to lean forward. At any other time he would linve presented an appearance distinctly ludicrous. He seemed to be waddling slowly, and with great dignity, toward. the razor-edged weapon. He stood stock still, planted his legs hard in the ooze, and began to bend forward, BS if he were about to undertake some caUsthenic exercise. Donald understood what was happening. The monsters were urging Clouts' body downward in such a way that the edge of the bone knife would Me-.Immediately against his breast Then, with an Increased pressure, Clouts would be forced down until the keen, bone sliced his body In twain. He plunged his hand into the mound. mnd drew out a bone. Whirling it ••boot his head, he struck out right and left with it. He heard the skulls of ^the monsters crack under the Impact He dove, a path to Clouts' side. He ••cached him just as the edge of the Knife lay across Clouts' breast As he 'Aent back, the .sea devils, Clouts straightened himself with a Jerk and looked up mournfully. •It ain't no use, sir," he said, and plunging his hand into his breast, he drew out his mouth organ. The relief was only momentarily achieved. The monsters came crowd- Ing back. They pinioned Donald's anas to his sides by pressure. In another instant Clouts would have paid the debt he never owed MacBeard. It was then the ruling passion asserted itself in Clouts. Perhaps it was because he thought his chance would never come again, or it might have ' been mere habit.. Setting his hand to his lips, he struck out the reedy notes of "Snlly in Onr. Alley." Donald saw the phosphorescence run irom them along the cave like liquid flre. He heard MacBeard's deep note. eaw the fire quiver and vanish in the •darkness outside the cave. Meanwhile Bam Clouts played on. Donald seized Davies' arm In wild .excitement. ' "Don't you see?" he cried. "It's mu- - .sic,-.n6t the sounds, because they can't Jiear those, but only the vibrations. -Tbat'stheir language. And MncBeard : ."learned somewhere that they wouldn't •Jmrt him if he brought—do you know •wha* he brought? Do you know what :-lt was that he struck?" "A tuning fork.'" shouted Davies. With their arms linked, they ran '. Jnto the throng of scurrying monsters, rlda between Donald and Davles, and in-the. van, blowing nia month a madman.

"Never mind; you're doing 'very well indeed, Clouts," answered Donald. '"Play, man! Play!"' _ ... The lights, which had remained stationary during the moment's interlude, grew dimmer again as Clouts struck out with his lips the tune of "Cock o 1 the North.", "The submarine!" gasped Donald, pointing before him as he ran. But, even as he, neared It, it,began to grow ,dlm. : -Not more than a hundred paces away; the vessel sank into obscurity as they, raced toward it. I( seemed gradually to be blotted out before their eyes. . And , slowly, almost imperceptibly, the cloudy' curtain began ,to descend and to dissolve." Bonald gasped for air.

And; he. found 'It, and them, almost by a. miracle. ;• He had the good fortune to blunder into'them as they tugged at the outer door of the airlock. Somehow they opened it. They, got Ida inside and followed. Tae outer door was closed. Clouts, reeling forward, opened the inner one, and the stale, worn-out air within the conning tower seemed like ozone. CHAPTER XI. The Interloper. Ida went into Donald's cabin. Donald himself arranged to sleep in the messroom. Davies^hnd his cabin, and Clouts the first watch. Presently Donald found himself atone: He got into his hammock, but he- could not grapple with the situation; It seemed so unreal that he half expected to awake and find that he hnd been delirious, and that he was just coming-to after rescuing Ida from the wreck of the Beotia. Ho felt more mid more nervous. He got up and sat down at the table, staring into the darkness in front of him. Suddenly he leaped to his feet with a choked gry. Across the mc-ssroom, at a distance of about eight paces, he saw, mistily outlined, the face and body of the woman whom he had imug- ined that he'saw In the house in Baltimore—and again outside! He stared at her Incredulously. He saw her so faintly that once again he believed himself the'victim of a hallucination. The faintest illumination played about her, showing only the ethereal spirit that seemed incarnate in a vapory cloud. But this was no monster such as those devils of the sea. It was the most beautiful woman whom Donald had ever seen or Imagined. He stumbled toward her! He put out his hand.. As he did so, the figure moved, and he heard unmistakably,the faintest.slide of feet^ppu the flborl He tried to catch her,, to satisfy himself that,he.was not dreaming,,.but she eluded,hlra with ease, .seeming, to float before his eyes, now here, now. there. Suddenly the door opened. Donald saw Ida standing In the doorway, by the light of the candle within her cabin, ' :•. "Donald!" I thought I door." "Ida!" The denial died on his lips. He was not sure. He glanced hastily about him, and, at the far end, he thought he sow the dim outlines, of his visitor again. Ida peered through the darkness. She saw nothing, but she interpreted Donald's movements correctly. "Donald! Who is she? How she come here?" "There is nobody, Ida." He "heard the desperation in his voice; and at that instnut a yearning toward the ethereal loveliness, of that uncanny wraith filled his whole heart. He took a match from his box-arid struck Jt _.(To bo she cried.

The spirit of unrest Hint has been sweeping the country indicates - that the foreign born, who have floci;ed to the United States from every corner of the globe have not been given the proper help and encouragement, in the opinion of the 4,000 librarians who make up the American Library-Association and who are now enlisted in a "Books for Everybody" movement. The effort is a concerted movement to carry out the Enlarged Program which the association lias adopted. There .are approximately fifteen millions o£ foreign born .in the United States and of this number six millions do not read or speak the'English language. One phase of tlie Eniarged Program will be to bring the publisher and translator together with the view of furnishing the proper books In sufficient numbers to carry the message of American ideals and traditions to this vast army of uninformed people. -They have been largely dependent upon tlie foreign press for their written messages. Many men who live with tlieir fingers on tlie pulse of current events are firmly convinced that a sound foundation...in Americanism can be easily built among the foreign born if tlie proper literature is placed within their reach Jn a language they can understand. No Drive to Be Held.,, In order to carry out the Enlarged Program two million dollars will be required. This money will -not be nought through the medium of a campaign or an intensive drive, but will be obtained through the individual efr forts of the librarians, library trustees and friends of libraries. The American Library Association <a?IU bend every effort to bring about the .nation-wide adoption of each of the cardinal points in the Program, which includes the extension of tlie county library sytem and the establishment of more Industrial and business libraries. It now, has in operation book service to the United States Merchant Marine, Coast Guard, Lighthouse Service and hospitals of the United States Public Health Service. The needs of the 75,000 blind persons in the United States will be cared for. At present the numbor of books available is woefully inadequate. This will be remedied -and the Jovs- of good literature will be brought Into lives that are darkened by a veil which -jivill never be raised by any other method. '• Not ail the work of Americanization jies in the great centers of population. Gre'nt sections of the country where industry is carried', on by foreign workers do not know public library-service. There are important mining' states where less than a score of libraries exist.- One mining state has but.two public libraries. MORE BOOKS FOR BLIND.

California, the Pioneer— Other States Adopting the Plan. The American Library -Association, In announcing its "Books for Everybody" movement, which is to be nation wide in ItSygcope," advises and urges the extension of the county library system as a solution of the problem of supplying good literature to the rural districts. Its intention is to persist in advocating the ot.^ion-wide adoption of the idea as successfully applied in California, Ohio and Maryland until every one of the 2,964 counties in the nation have adopted the system and regular shipments of good books are- being made from the central point in: the county to the designated outposts. palifornia stands out as the bighpoint In the successful application of the idea. Of tie 58 counties in the state 42 have adopted and are supporting the system at a trifling cost. This it urges as a part of Its enlarged program which 'aims to 'promote a better citizenship and to combat the social and Industrial unrest through the teaching of American ideals and traditions 'to the foreign: born. •' The book needs of the sixty million or more Americans who live outside of the big. cities will be called to the at-^ tention of those in a position to'serve County Libraries Urged. The county library system provides for establishing one central library at] the county seat-or in the largest town! in every county. This does not. mean necessarily the erecting of a library; building and the stocking of its shelves. ; In many cases the tools already exist From this central station books will be loaned to designated ourpent sta-- tlor.s. The. books will, be delivere*:by trucks, parcel post or whatever method- may be adopted in any given county to the country i stores, tollgates, post offices, schoolhouses and private homes. When one shipment has been circulated and returned another will be sent •out Also, In communities of any size in the county, branch libraries will be maintained. . The American Library Association, with Its 4,000 active librarian mem : bers and its 40 years of practical func-i tioriirig,..is in a position to know the needs 'of the' country and in the fight for wl'der knowledge 'Is a force to be reckoned with. The Enlarged Program calls for an expenditure, of $2,000,000.- There will be no drive or intensive campaign. The money will be raised by the librarians, library trustees and friends of. libraries. The movement for better citizens and a well read population is on and the slogan is "Books for Everybody." '••..- "BOOKS FOR EVERYBODY!"
