MacBeard saw that the creatures were beyond his control. For the first time his tuning forks had failed him. He was afraid of being torn in pieces. And up in the cave Sam Clouts found himself engaged in the most furious tussle that he had ever known. For, like a fury, the queen rushed at him, and Clouts, at. first solicitous about striking a woman, soon found, . himself hard put to it to -maintain the upper hand, with all his strength and with the use of all the 'wrestling tricks he knew. , He panted as he grappled •nth her.

The evening newspapers contained, in. full, Donald's narration of the approaching ruin of the world.

He rose from ' Ills desk and shook hands with him cordially. "Sit down, Mr. .Paget," he said warmly. Then he noticed that .Donald .was dressed in. a nondescript diving suit and that his looks were decidedly wild. , ,. Donald sat down and plunged Instantly -into the story of the world danger.

It is a matter of hours, perhaps. Even now these monsters may be speeding southward." The second sea lord hud been unable to interpose a word by reason of the torrent of impassioned speech that poured from-Donald's lips. At first he listened in amazement at What he considered an impudent hoax; then In anger; then,'after'a brief glance at Donald's face, with absolute passivity. "I thank you, Mr. Paget," he said, rising, when 'Donald had ended. • "You have done notable work, and England will not forget it And now, sir, you must be conducted to the prime minister at once, that you may 'apprise aim of these startling events."
