The reason was, she Kept ihink- ng of that pair of young lovers she liacliscparnted. It was (lie first lime- she .jiad ever done a thing ike thai, deliberately. So today she facqcl her own soul and sa'iri, "I've got to make it right!" She meant with the girl. When she reached the Unicorn and Crown Tavern (which she rc- ^relfully conceded Io bu mud) more respectable and pretentious than 'tiic Sheaf of Wheat) she called the landlord aside. "Mr. Toby," she said, "you've gol u young lady slaying here I must talk io. 1 don't Unow her name, but she's the betrothed iwccthcart, I take it, of one Jeremiah Whi.lfield." The innkeeper scrutinized Mazic more closely. Though she was not wearing Ihc sky-blue dress, ho now recognized her. "Why!" he exclaimed accusingly, "you're tlie lady he we'nl off with thai night! Whiil have you donb will) him?" "They say he was a dcsertei from His Majesty's navy," Miizie explained briefly, "and I sot ; i>ress gang on him. He didn't g< off of his own accord. He was carried aft. I'd like to explain that to the girl 1 saw him with." "You mean Miss Polly Chelsey? \ Well, it's too bud you put olf your explaining so long. She left for Dover yesterday. She hopes to get liomc to America by way of France it' she can cross (he Channel. She had no plans when she left here." "CHE'S an American, you say? And she's gone-? . . . Oh, my! What was her slate of mind, Mr. Toby?" "For several days. Miss, she Eccinecl fairly crushed. Tool; to her bed and refused, food- But all of- a sudden,'' like, she recovered. As my wife says, she seemed as hard as nails, tossing her head and acl- ng like she hadn't a care Io her lame."' "Oh, tlie poor creature!" Mazie pxclairned,' She could read Polly Clielscy's' behavior very readily. It was prompted, she guessed, by i proud hurt heart that seeks to hide its wounds^ She asked anxiously, "Do you know where I could- find her in Dover, Mr. Toby?" "No, Miss. Though she'd doubl- less'go to a decent tavern. Yes, that's likely what she'd do." "Well," said Mazie, "I must do what 1 can. I must write a letter and leave it for you to give thc coach driver in the morning. He'll remember her — who wouldn't! Ife'Il know where he- put her oft willi her trunk, lien's'tour shillings to pay him for his trouble. Tell the coach driver, Mr. Toby" —Mazie paused and fixed Ihc innkeeper with compelling eyes— "tell him to deliver this letler to Miss Polly Chelsey if it's humanly possible, because it will right a great wrong." When Mr. Toby had fetched paper and ink and a quill. Mazie Miller sat down at a (able and began to compose a letler. * * * TKflHY WH1TF1ELD and his " companion, Cabell Banks of Boston, were in thc small dark prison hold of the brig Sunrise, playing a game ' with hemp strands. It was a childish game, but it kept (hem from losing their minds. There was -in thc prison hold a great deal of massive coiled rope, nn overflow from thc- cable tier. Prom this stout wet rope that smelled so reekingly of bilge- water and the sea they pulled hemp strands with infinite care, and these they pitted against each other in various ways. They were particular about thc rules they made, and events were conducted very sportingly. Whoever lost an event paid two pence to the winner. At times-Jerry would interrupt thc game with an outburst of nerves and would climb the ladde : toward the open hatch. Always and at once a marine's bayonet would send him down again. "If you keep that up," Cabell Banks complained irritably, "they'll close the hatch. A little daylight helps." "Yes," Jerry agreed. "But il seems like I've gol to keep trying. Something drives me to keep Iry- ing—" "Why?" Cabell asked. "What do you hope Io yain?" "My freedom. . . . Listen, Banks, 1 'don't mean to boast, but I'm a good swimmer.--I'm one of Ihe bcsl swimmers. Ural ever came out of Gloucester; 1C..would be nothing for me to swirii' lishore now. Tomorrow may be too late.' \ I disagree. Tomorrow v;ould be belter, because your head would be better healed. You've got h nasty cut .there, near the crown." Thai!" said Jerry disdainfully. "I tell'you','Banks, tomorrow' may bo loo late. I believe we're gelling ready ib sail. I know Hie signs. They're bringing on provisions. Sailors are coming on board, Listen, it you don't believe me!" , "I believe you. All right, we're golfing ready to sail, and I've gol Ihis Io say about il—it will be- belter for yon when we do sail. '^ you gel your chance and try t" swim for it, you'll be shot.-'it's that simple." "I wonder you can be so reconciled Io this iloating jail!" Jerry exclaimed bitterly. Cabell Banks shrugged. "1 can afford to bide my lime. I've got no fiancee who thinks I've deserted her." * t * I"N the long watches of several sleepless nights they had ex- changee! life histories; ill assorted though they were, these confidences had given them admiration and respect for each olhor. Jerry itncw iho rich man's son to be brave, loyal, and shrewd; Cabell iiad discovered Jerry Whitficld Io ho brave, loyal, and obstinate. Both had a streak of recklessness, uut in Jerry it was far more pronounced; he was in love, -ind that state begets a special form of madness all ils own. They were conUned in Ihc prison hold continuously except for half an hour a day'above deck for exercise. It had aeon jO since their interview with Captain Stcv/. That irate officer had no sooner"St recovered from the shock of lliujv \S insubordination than he-had luid them returned to prison ftuarteis, will) all privileges suspended. He called them "the seagoing peasant and the rich Boston fool"; and when he thought of Hie Bos- tori boy's insolent boast that lie would outfit a privateer against England and make the Gloucester sailor his first male, he all but had a stroke of apoplexy. Yet that order of his for 'M .whip lashes on Jeremiah Whil- held's bared hack had not yet been consummated . . . Not yet. . . , In the prison hold Jerry wab; looking upward toward the open hatch. "Listen!" ho said to Cabell Banks. "Something's going- an." They climbed thc ladder, part; way, to catcii the sudden shouting in the forecastle. It was Jerry who interpreted rtM-'or. "We're going out-with Hie lide!" he said Uittcrly.""Bouiuh for the North Sea." •; 'T:I-.
