Mabel and Harding crouched beside it, trying to coax the red glow into flame. In a few moments the kindling pile was blazing and larger pieces of wood were added. It was obvious from Sill well** breath he had bartered for whiskey, too. Even though he had prob ably hidden it em the trail somewhere, .with the blazing of the comforting fire no on* mentioaex the fact "George's got himself a coz; little establishment down there,' Fred said. He Looked at Nona am smiled. "Two flres going, and Mol lie outside trying to roast a slal of mutton. She doesn't act ver; pleased." "How'd b* cut up a sheep? Bea asked. j "George has a big sheath knif< George has matches. George dry and comfortable inside Lh cave working on the whiskey. Sillwell looked around the circl of faces and put their thoughts int words. "In fact it looks to me lik George was pretty well prepare (or what happened. 1 * * • • 4 UL, that night 'the nee bume - A brightly, sizzled occasional! as water leaked through the she ter roof. At nrst the flre and the rookin of strips of meat had brought comfort that found expression ir talk. There was speculation abou •scue. There was planning of Beacons. Methods of moving rock om hidden stores were discussed. AD night someone was awake. There was a constant movement. shifting of stiffened bodies. And iany trips oul into the rain for lore fuel with [he necessary 'termath of clothes drying. •ra was.a mere lightening of loom. * gradually increasing raynesa. The rain Eet up a little ut the clouds were lower, tested oistly OB Speare Island. There was little morning talk There was silent irritability, leth- rgy. despondency. One by one they wandered off nto the mist. Fred Sillwell re- urned smelling of whiskey, and eceived glares. No one spoke to im. Henry Harding returned and •t by the fire, poking it aimlessl-i with a short bit of stifk. Nona anc Agnes made some effort at wasting in rain water dripping from he shelter roof Mabel came back ilenlly and threw a few Hal scorched and half ripened vege .ables into the bucket of stew 3ea did her best with her snarled lair without benefit of comb washed carefully around the grease-covered scorched places. "For heaven's sake!" she blurted at last. "What's the matter with all of us? We've food of sorts, and shelter. We wont starve for while at least. There's more mut ton where 1 got that. Who'll com with me and help build up a nil of wood so we'll have a beaco when it clears up?" "What's the use?" Agnes sai< "Nobody could see it in this kin of weather. N-nobody ever come this way. Nobody'll ever com Mr. Harding knows it. You know it And what good will do to go out in this awful rain?' "It won't do any good to sit her complaining," Bea snapped. '*Oh for heaven's sake." Non said, "go be active and optimist somewhere else.!* Bea Cosgrove bit back a reto le fished a piece of meat from the icket with a stick. She carried it ith her out into the mist of day, * • * HE walked briskly along th* trail toward Fisherman's Cove, hewed on her meat and tossed lost bit of gristle aside. Move- lent took some of the stiffness om her muscles, and the circula- on of blood carried away a part f the depression of spirits she had ell with the rest. A fire burned before the en- ance of the cave, but Bea saw either George Ba scorn o* nor lollie as she hurried past- Cap- In Oak had said he would re- urn as soon as possible. Bea won- ered if she should believe him, if his presence in the tunnel lat night was a preliminary to ie explosion. Her first sight of the cove told er ol the exact truth of Harding'* words. Nothing human could live n that broken water. Huge waves wept across the reef with scarce- y a check and dashed white thun- !er against the base of the cliff. There was no sign of any beach. ?here was new wreckage caught iere and there on cliff projections, o«sed into the break in the wall where the trail had led down to and. Idly, moving cautiously, she poked about in the debris. "The last of the Gullwing." She found a section of splin- ered rail with a tightly lashed while circle still in place. She .ugged, managed to turn it over so she could read the black lettering of the word Simpatico on the white canvas. She looked quickly again, out over the water, found no reassurance there for her fear. She searched now for bodies among the wreckage. Even when she found none she felt no better. The clouds opened again in gentle rain. She began retracing her steps slowly. This time when she passed the cave, George Bascombe stood in the entrance while MolHe Slnrk bent over the cooking fire, Bea hurried past, did not turn when the man shouted. She was soaking wet, but the rain brought a greater visibility than the inist. She stood on a rock, looked around the island. She -hivered.
