THE . DAILY PRESS VIOTBK RD\73SEA\/ ~~ 33>s !£&&* cs name illuminated Ihe inessrooin. It was entirely empty. "You see, dear," said Donald, tarn- tag to Ida -with an embarrassed langb. Tou.have been dreaming, dear." Tea. • I suppose I have been dream- |»f," she answered. But she spoke Without .conviction. And suddenly she Was crying upon his shoulder. "Donald, you were disappointed when I came In!" she sobbed. • "Dear, you ere hysterical. In the morning It will be all right." - Ton don't love me any more, Don- Bid." , \ "Of course I love you," he responded •adly. Somehow his heart was utterly overcast; It was as If he. had looked Into the face of Immortal beauty. . "Of course I love you. "Won't you try to aleep, Ida?" he asked. "Yes," she answered, releasing' her•elf.; "But you don't love me, Donald—I know!" And slowly she withdrew into her cabin, leaving Donald a prey to intense bewilderment nnd despair. Who was she, this almost invisible beauty? Had • she followed him here, BboanJ the ship, 'or— swimming behind . .the submarine? Was she another species of the sen devils? Suddenly, for the first time since their .conversation, he recalled Mqster- man's words: . "I brought my specimen home with me. Think of that, lad! She didn't want to eat. They don't eat after they are mature, Donald." Now it came to Donald with conviction that the old captain had had reference to—this woman! And, straining his eyes through the darkness, he saw her again. But this time there was visible upon her face an expression so pitiful that It almost brought' the tears to Donald's eyes. She was watching him with a dumb yearning of inexpressible pathos. That look reminded Donald of the old legend of the mermaid \yho could obtain a soul only from some human lover. An idea came to Mm. Ee would go tip into the conning tower; in that nar- :row space he could see her better and ^understand what she was. But as he stood in the passage, at the bottom of the trapdoor, Clouts appeared before him." It occurred to •Donald afterward that he had been • there for a considerable 'time. "It's all. right, sir!" said Clouts. "You told me to call you when you was • to go on duty, and it's nil right" "What's all right?" demanded Donald. - "It's all right, sir. I understand such things," said Clouts. "Clonts, what the devil are you talk- Ing about?" "It's all right, sir," replied Clouts lor the third time, pointing before him. And in the passage, not more than a dozen feet away, Donald saw the woman's form. His anger vanished. He took the Bailor by the arm. "Clouts," he said, "do you suppose we could get her into the conning tower?" "I don't know, sir,'\ said Clouts, shaking his head. "K she's Willing to to* sir. • That's the question, sir." "Clouts"—Donald's voice sank to a whisper^—"you must understand thatr this "isn't a woman^-at least not a Iranian, one. She's—rshe's—" "Quite so, if I might say so, or thereabouts," said ClouteJ > "And ..dp you think yon could get her;there?? , Clouts' scratched hls ; head. "I suppose ; so, sir," he answered. "But she'd haye-^to, come out; again, you know." 'That's what I Intend," said Donald desperately': "Buck-.into the wateiv-^ through 'the airlock." "Push.her,In, sir?" "Lead her in, Clouts. Put on my coat and let her follow you. Then, when you've got her inside, put on the last diving dress and" see that she— that-she doesn't come'back. I don't mean you to hurt her. She can live under the water, .you know. And, while you're about it, Clouts, you might see if you can adjust the rudder." For a moment Clouts and his captain looked hard into each other's eyes. Then Clouts' grim face softened. Putting his hands' to his pocket, he drew out his mouth organ, and the soft strains of "Annie Eooney" went up into the nir. Clouts played it through with quiet resolution. "Ill do it, sir," he said. Donald turned and saw that the woman of "the sea stood exactly where ehe had been throughout that interview. .She had not stirred. • ' ' He waited while Clouts found the .last diving suit in the storeroom, and .then tlie two went back toto the mess- room. Presently Clouts emerged, en, eased In his cylinder, and holding the glass mask in his hand. About his -jiboulders he wore" Donald's coat. Donald waited within. He heard the conning tower trap- floor close, and after that he could hear nothing. He waited an indefinite Ume. Suddenly a soft splashing of water told him tilat. the. lower levels of fte sea wepe"bein^';kgltatea by the; •KQdenced oxygen in tne airlock. There '^ ".i. i • '" .-'^ T " '. .-'-TT; r-— . : . rr-:o—--. CTTOUCT;. -me sounds were, j cut off abruptly, and for a long time i Donald waited. His nerves were so tense that when Clouts opened the door he started violently. He peered Into the sailor's tace. "Tve done It, sir," said Clouts. "She followed me like—like a dog, sir. And I saw her eyes when I pushed her Into the water, and I don't want to see a look like that again. It felt like murder, sir." '• VNonsense I" exclaimed Donald angrily. "You know perfectly well. Clouts, that she wasn't on board when we. started. Therefore, she must have come in with us from the sea bottom." "1 know, "sir," said Clouts, shaking ills head"moumfully. Then, unable to control himself, he clapped his hand to his mouth organ. And Donald waited alone, sleepless, while the dreary night wore on. .. .., CHAPTER XII. ' Afloat and Ashore. He must have fallen Into alight doze at last, for he awakened to find Davies it his side. . The middy's voice cleft the thick darkness like a knife. "We're done for, old man'!"-he whispered. "We'd better not awaken her. Listen!" -Heretofore no sound from without had penetrated the-thin plates of the submarine, but'now Donald distinctly heard' a cracking' noise, as if 'some pressure were being exerted against the sides of the • vessel. "We're breaking up, sir.""You mean—?" "It's that gang of devils, Donald. Do pou mind letting me grip ycrar arm a minute,.sir? It's in a way disturbing." The 1 sounds grew louder. The plates were groaning under pressure, and it seemed every instant that the rivets would start and the water rush In. "It's tlie weight of the ocean over as, Dnvies," said Donald, without the Eaintest faith in this diagnosis. . . "But this pressure is horizontal, not eertical, Donald. And water has no norjzqnfnl Dress.ure. at alL." (To be continued.) DRIVERS STAY ON Chicago Expressmen Vote "No" on Strike Proposition." Does Not Mean End of the Express Tieup—Msy.Be Beginning of End. ..Chicago, March S.—Chicago's 2,200- express drivers refused to go on" 'strike. After a ~f>ng meeting at \their heud- quarters, .at which H. E. .Shepherd, seceding "general chairman of the Chicago district; of the Brotherhood, of Hallway Clerks, and organizer of the strike, urged the drivers to. Join the j walkout, the latter took the advice of their own officials and the ollicials of the express company and unanimously voted to remain at work. While this action does not affect the general strike, iind Chicago is still confronted with a shortage -of foodstuffs because of their continued riohsliip- fflent, the -action o£ the drivers is looked upon as a beginning of the end of the strike.
