or interest or in telling of onr adventures in former cruises j Among the crew and in our particular watch wis an old tar who had ceen more of j i Helm did I see waa tne the sea thin almost he whols of us put f gether for we were all of ua scarcely more me and I knew sailed with him when I got there I thought I on a fur ni well for I had as second mite j been sent there than lads while the beet hall of a century had whitened his ont e coal black hair His name was Ben and a clever talkative good-natured old or he was with a kind word always ready for the messmates and a joke or a story whenever we were in want of one Jack Lanyard had spun ns a yarn the pre- vious night and when he had finished we all called upon old Hen for his story but just aa he was about to commence the wind to blow a gals and we were sent up aloft to furl end reef topsails and ter that we were too busy to think of any yarna but ropo yarns On cver as soon as it waa our watch below we called again upon who on the end of a cault prepared to comply with the coll You must know my he the signs of aa the landlord the before i there waa That will do favor I have to aak of you is to get me a berth on board of the an ahe is manned now or if you are full ed to find some excuse to May behind anil let me go in your place It wasn't much this fur him to ael from a tar who felt for him as if he had been hi i brother especially too as we happened want a hand for you must know that on J of our lads had been taken the day before t the hospital with the yellow fever and be- fore the same night poor fellow he waa col 1 and it Tho captain had told me to loo c otit fur another hand and this offer of ter besides doing him a service saved me all farther trouble There was no difficulty in getting hiri accepted fur the captain whose eyesight waa none of the best had not the idea who he was As luck would it when the vessel was loaded and we wers ready to weigh our anchor I had charge of the crew sent to bring off Mies Ines and Mister Harry WJB among them The old mnn stayed on board and did not himself trouble to go after hia daughter I thought it- urae -all ne a Kin t though I kept my tongue still anl not a word about it When we touched the sent ter Harry up to the house to bring the youn j lady down There were many of her friends present and there waa a good detl of crying before they let her go At las however they parted j and she sobbing aa if her heart would break stepped towards the boat Harry waa close beside her and I could see him lean his face towards whisper it was I don't know but she started and looked at him and seemed as if sho was going to faint but she didn't faint for he supported and she recovered herself in a moment doubt he had cautioned her how sho shou d conduct herself for when they stepped in o the boat she was Donna Inez ngain and he was simply Tom he called self now Well my lada we sailed at last with Douna Inez as a passenger and Harry Hel n before the mast You may depend upon it the young lady whenever ahe could be wus on deck Well did I think when we bent our sails and our trim craft sat on tlie water like a bird ready to unfold its wings that WK should never reach little did I think as we stoud awny from the land with studding sails and royals all set that our gallant brig wae on her Inst voyage Little iden indeed had any ow i of us of was going to happen before we of The captain tip toon he heard a Mil cried from and ha On our tat quarter won ft M mete w went II wan do you make her liked the captain Can't tell sir She hull she looks like a told

five She haa gave the her sec and ahe to be who been Ifcn now out from the reefs yonder Making out from the reefs the deuce is she doing among them 1 The question was natural enough j but it waa easier than answered and I suppose the mate thought for he didn't put himself to the trouble of answering it t and the captain asked him what her hull looked like She ii just rising mate replied and she Like a clipper How does she head t salted the cap- tain and he to be getting little uneasy about the craft She is bearing right down upon ua the mate he began to come down the Bet your main topmast staysail Mr said tlie captain speaking in ken English aa he always did and give a pull on your forebrace We will see what ahe ia made of before we hare any better acquaintance with her The could go through the wa- ter aa well aa any hrig 1 ever sailed in but she waa no match fur the for the latter gained on us every minute By after- noon we could see her hull from our that she was in chase of us and also that she waa armed Every one from the cap- tain to the cabin boy felt anxious now for we had a suspicious looking craft in our wake and its nearer approach might a to us Miss Inez was on deck part time but the old man gruffly aent aer below About six o'clock the wind began to blow stronger and the schooner had to take in sail We kept everything on and before dark gained almost as on her as she had gained on us since the morning Aa the night closed in we could just see ber masts reflected the horizon and you may depend upon it we thought fortunate in through the day I'm to

though I didn't know h m till he spoke to me and told me with hia own mouth who he was Ho took me in a private room and there he gave me the whc e he and Miss Inez eacl other and how the old captain had deter to seperate what lit tin nee there was of their ever meeting agai j if should leave him now And sayi he going to nes and lam in tl and I want you to do me n rf fregh Did you founder Ben 1 asked one of our comrades who began already to fidget for the end of the story You shall hear replied Bin without himself to be interrupted We sailed aa I said Port and for four days had a steady breeze which us finely through the and enabled us to lay our course direct for cur port It was on the morning of the fi 111 day when the ocean lay before HP and we were leaving in our wake a rocky last point of land that we would be likely to see until we neared cur haven in the a Rail astern of us Some one who had been si nt up in the main rigging cried and the sound no sooner reached the than we were all our to get of it for in those days there man in the fne were pirates in the West India Sew tnd we had a sharp look fof out any It waa little sleep that any of ua had that night We crowded every stitch ol canvass on the brig that ahe could bear though after eight o'clock the wind died way again and we could not at the beat make more than from five to fix knota an lour At the first peep of dawn in the morn ing the mate waa at the mast head in of the and the captain was wait ing with the deepest anxiety to hear news of her but ahe was not to be seen and we had begun to think that during tb we had lost ber Wo already easier and were congratulating on our escape when Mr Harry who wa s aloft daw her about five milea dead of us She had kept in onr wake the whole night and since the wind lulled off ahe must hove gained right smartly oil 9 The Captain walked up and deck and ha to be dreadfully agitated He took the wheel but he couldn t steer brig any tlian tin wind would carry her through the The stilt nn na befor long we could m out both her lower an t her upper works Wo could see her 1 and we coald tell very distinctly that ah J was pierced for guns She's a smart Mr said
