' brought a quick responsive smile to' nis lips. . j Sis weeks ago a proa from the Til-' 1 lage here had picked him up ;H sea ' and brought him, as it: were, io this big-hearted man's door. He owed his! life to 1 MacKnight. • j ."It's no use, MacKnight," ha an-! swered. "I've got to go." [ - '"It'll be that black devil in .'"injra- > pore 1" ejaculated the trader, screw- j ing up his'wizened face and pullint;: viciously at bis beard. "You'll iv> play j the fool,' AVallen. It's not fit v-u are' to go. Listen'to me, uion: it's. :i matter o' twenty miles across the island, as ye know well, and no conv.'yanpe. ye mind. And it's no regular r.-suler that's called, for none Is due—who'll have put in for 'water or the lib-, and will be sailing again nt daybreak." "I can make it by daybreak. Mnc- Knight," Wallen staled quietly. For a moment MacKnight sttrod at Wallen, then his hands dropped from Wnllen's shoulders: • • "Well, go, and be damned In you, Tthen!"' he said gruffly, deep in his throat* to bide his emotioii— and, turning, stepped abruptly oulsiih-. There were not many preparations to.' make—very few. Wallen's worldly possessions were his only through the generosity of the trader. But MacRnight did not stop at that now, for, five minutes latei-, as Wallen started for the night's tramp across the island, a jinlay ' guide, well loaded with supplies, start- i , ed with him, while MacKuight cursed '. ! with earnest profanity as they wrung each other's hand. : At the edge of the cleat-ing Wallen' looked 'back.' On the great Warded : figure that leaned against the door j frame of the* solitary trading siution ' ! Wallen's eyes lingered. j | The man waved his hand and i shouted: . . i i "Mon, ye'll no forget MacKni;;ht o' ! Arru! Ye'll no forget MacKnight, j Men!" I And then suddenly a mist dimmed } Wallen's eyes. He tried to shout •back—and couid only" wave hi.s own hand in return. And then the trees hid the trader from view. Forget MacKnight! Hie man wbo i had nursed him back to life as a j mother would nurse her child! For-i get that solitary human outpost of ! civilization—a man with an iron fist, ; a barbed-wire tongue and a heart as tender as a woman's! "No; he would not forget MacKnight! He forced a 'smile to Iris lips. One ! made strange friendships in these far parts of the world, and made 'them under strange circumstances. The chances were a thousaudTio one that he and MacKnight would never meet again—but, for all that, it wns a friendship that would last. / Twenty miles across tlie island before daybreak! • - I , Wallen fell to wondering what sort of a .ship and, more ^pertinent still, what sort of a skipper was on the ship that had'put into Pobi. He had refused MacKnight's offer of an advance of money, and lie hadn't a 'penny—but he was satisfied that he would not be refused passage in any case. He could work his way. ' A white man who knew his business was worth bis weight in ^old on a ship any time in these parts.. It was true he wasn't any too fit yet; but lie was fit enough for that, fit enough—a dull flush came into his face, and his eyes hardened-p-fit enough to get to Singapore somehow! He had not forgotten that ghastly afternoon in .the reek of the pest ship, . Hbr th'e CMnamaS ,wH»had died In his his frfp now—Drink-House .Sam pjjihe Malay'got back—but what" g'ooa Singapore, the man who..lmd tried, soj was that, mile!' 1 .One thing was certain, any further exertion 'would bring serious consequences, if tho so;ions consequences \vfire_not.alrenri5' an established fact.

A^Lec all he eoiild' ha,vo paid it back-to i the trader by mail 'sooner or..-later.' 1 ! . . , but tliall --.was. a 'vain regret!'
