until the blood gushed from my nose and ears The water grew icy cold and darker darker The helmet seemed filled with rushing noises with whisperings and mocking laughter I tried to tear away the lead weights which hung from my belt and shoul ders but they wouldnt budge For a moment or two I must have become delirious I was kissing Doroteas sweet lips McPherson was talking about Gladstone in his broadest Scotch Sam Hung Foo was making bobbery about a pink devil with red stomach and gilded ears every face I ver knew flashed before my eyes as if the lens were a kinetoscope 1 hen there came a jerk at the line It must have caught on something I knew I hadut fastened the other end To stay at that depth another second would have meant unconsciousness ard death Fearing with every tug that my weight added to that of rh rock would pull the line loose hauled myself up hand over hand though the exertion was so great on account of the pressure that every motion seemed Of likely to burst a blood vessel course in doing this the air in the knapsack counted for a good deal in all probability I couldnt have sunk much lower unless it had exploded but the weights would have held me at that depth had it not been for that slender bit of rope For several fath oms it needed but the slightest tug to send me shooting upward and as tfhe pressure increased I was better able to use my arms My strength was go ing fast however and nothing but the animal instinct to fight for life saved me Approaching the surface I became weaker or it required more strength to haul the extra weight and when I finally got 1113- - arms across the gunwale and outrigger it was im possible to move another inch The supply of air had given out and my last conscious mot ion was to unscrew the helmet lens In a few moments the fresh air revived me and I succeeded in crawling into the proa Then I got out of the diving suit took a strong pull at the brandy flask and hauled in my line It had run out so rapidly

water overhead It was longest from east to west and in the middle was small projection as high as my shoulders It was this which sent a shivering conviction through me that 1 harj fouud the wreck at last and I eagerly searched for another projection n t the westerly end After taking ioont 20 steps I found it or rather I fount4 a sinail lump of rock where it should have been and this settled my last doubt My first impression thai the foremast had broken off shorter than the main was accounted for by the fact that the whoie westerly end of the mouuc was two or three feet higher thai the middle Walking east found it several to the other end feet lower yet so our theory as to the drift of the coral fragments had been It now remained absolutely correct but to ascertain how thick the coating was on the northerly side and 1 rapidly scrambled down to where I had first stumbled against the wreck 1 had brought the smaller steel bar with me from the proa and this I be- gan driving against the perpendicular incrustation of coral at a spot near the stern At the second blow however I slightly lost my equilibrium and found that the rock upon which I stood shelved rapidly A horror of the unfathomable depth which lay but a few feet beyond made me throw myself flat upon the bottom digging my nails into the coral lest I should slip and sink to I knew not where Lying there until the beating of my heart slowed down to something like a normal pulsation I saw a faint reflection of light beneath the keel enough to show that 1 that It is ncdtf9 FRANTICALLY END T This was enough

combination against me had strong odds in its favor seemed obvious and I began to speculate upon how far it was safe to trust Senorita Dorotea Strolling down to the beach with her before retiring just to throw Sebastiano off his guard I learned with tense satisfaction that she both feared and detested the man She whispered also that her father had reason to suspect the padres Julian and Sebastiano of using their influence against him in Manila For a mo i ment or two I had a suspicion that she and the gobernador might be under the padres influence and trying to work themselves into my confidence with the intention of betraying me afterward But the more I thought of this the more improbable it seemed In the first place relations between the educated classes and the priesthood in Spain are rapidly approaching those which obtain in Italy neutrality distrust beneath on the surface Then it seemed as though the senorita must know too much to look upon other than Ids priestly character and if the friendship bein tween us was warming as rapidly as thought it was reasonably safe to stake her womans heart against her head Finally deciding to risk it I asked her if she cared to spend Monday upon the water with me and she accepted the invitation with such evident pleasure that I shoved all worry about the padre clear of my mind for the time When Monday morning came we breakfasted in the patio and made an early start before Sebastiano appeared sailing leisurely around Cocos reef as if we had the day before us and were disposed to take things easy When I asked Dorotea if she had ever sailed into the bays on the east side I He Obeyed PARIS KY CO G S VARDEN Florida Havana yjtx Solid trains finest w JVAHNWt iArmfMn X i Wjrai Tampa f tE -- Zm i litVANA 1 1AMI KfcVWliTj iuSmw J i

to remain there I must have been altogether up set by the experience for after haul injr the rock on board I held it in my lap and almost cried over it The position of the proa over deep water was explained by the light puffs of wind which for an hour or two had shifted to the westard as it v ill sometimes do shortly before the change of monsoon But in half an hour it was again blowing steadily rom the northeast and I started on my return 10 Agana Having It was then two oclock well forward 1 calculated the breeze that it would take me at least six ho irs to get back but the witch of a boat

I put the proa about for a straight run in When about ten miles off shore however I discovered that I had company for bearing down from the northard was the biggest catamaran I ever saw The hull must

apparatus Then before taking them from the fissure I told her of my intention to search for something under the sea at Santa Kosa reef and asked if she would help me Looking straight into my face for a moment she said Does not Senor Enrique know of a reason why I would do anything in the world for him Nothing more than the evidence of your friendliness senorita mia So But you do have the bad

could travel in proas there was but one chance in a thousand of any boats being seen beating in especially as the place had the unsavory reputation of being haunted On the land side there had been an old sugar plan- tation known as Mount Tarofofo farm but the goberuador had mentioned it as being abandoned and the moun- tain or bluff shut out all view of the sea The more I thought of it the more it seemed exactly the place I wanted It needed but the falling off a few points to head for the Cocos island in stead of Agana and by half past six I passed it as clos in shore as it was By seven oclock I had safe to go reached sufficiently to the eastard for a straight run intc Tarofofo and go ing about rounded Point Paicpouc just at dusk As the depth of the wa ter and the exact bearing of the bluffs were accurately shown upon my chart I had no difficulty in running ashore at ilie westerly head of Paicpouc cove which I judged to be completed shel tered from observation on the land side After lowering the sail I noticed thai the rocks descended abruptly into the water at the spot I had selected and was on the point of running along to where the chart showed a small creek when a slight opening attracted my attention The precipice was so close that I could have tossed a pebble against it and the spot so perfectly sheltered that I felt safe in using my lantern Outlines were becoming indistinct in the gatheringdarkness but the moment I turned on the current it revealed a fissure about four feet wide which led diagonally into the face of the rock There was a good three feet of water right up to the opening and upon throwing the light inside I could see that it ended in a cul de sac with perpendicular walls If I had searched the entire archipelago it would have been difficult to find a place more perfectly suited to my requirements when I came again in broad daylight the fissure was in visible 100 feet away It was something of a task to unload the contents of the big chest but in a short time 1 had them stowed away under a tarpaulin 60 feet from the opening and was ready to leave the cove The moon was not yet up but the starlight was suffi cient to navigate by and I reached Agana by 11 oclock As the big proa I had seen was of too heavy draught to run across the hoa in front of the town was not surprised at her ab- sence The lights about the goberna dors
