Horrified Martha sees the yellow Man approach but she is never to know what orders he was to carry out for Ai that moment a terrific detonation Shook the ship. The coast guard was catching up with them in the excitement Martha escapes later finds Betty and together they climb to the next deck. Then they realized the reason for Cizniak s concern for them. Now go on with the Story chapter Xxiii looking out Over the dark Waters Martha saw that the speeding Revenue Cutter was close astern of i Znika a vessel. A great Mustache of White foam Rode along before the clean cutting prow. Then suddenly a blinding Glare of Light struck at them. A ifs the new coast guard Cutter that was brought around from the East coast a Martha heard one of the men shout. A this tub can to get away from a a she a got to a it was Speddon roaring above the Din. A a they be Given us one shot As a warning a the other Man yelled. A next time Well get it Square. In a going to Tell Pete to get those engines in reverse a a not until Cizniak orders you to a Speddon rasped. Martha and Betty crouched Low on the deck afraid that the illumination of the cutters Searchlight would reveal them to some of i Znika screw. A a we be got just one Chance a Betty whispered. A a that a to signal that coast guard Cutter. If they know we re aboard they wont a but Cizniak is sure to a a Stybe. If he does hell make certain that the Revenue men never see us a Martha put a hand on Bettye a shoulder. A you stay Here. Ill try to work around to the other Side. Surely be Able to see me. If in a a it might not work though a the voice of Cizniak said suddenly. A we tricked them that Way once with a Sailor in women a clothes a Martha turned startled. Cizniak stood there on the wet deck his face working angrily. In his right hand was a revolver. A a done to move either of you a he yelled Speddon a name. A take these two below Jack. Ling is Down there and he knows what to a a but a a do As i Tell you a Speddon reached into his pocket. A get going a he said. Their hearts like Lead Martha and Betty preceded Speddon Down the steel companionway. A keep going until you get to i Znika a room a Speddon told them. The Placid Oriental was there As Cizniak had said. He smiled at Speddon. A please hold them quiet with gun a moment a he said. With surprisingly Strong arms he pushed the two girls onto the bunk and within half a minute had bound the legs and arms of both securely. They sat stiffly faces White As paper watching Ling and Speddon. A what about their traps Lertg a Speddon asked. Ling smiled. A i have handler Chieve ready. People meeting death sometimes like to Speddon rubbed his hands nervously. A we ought no to to have to do this. Wed never have run afoul of these gals if Neal had not got queer on he looked along the passageway. A a in a going up above. Done to forget what Cizniak told Ling smiled and walked across the room. Slowly he opened one of the big port holes wide and stood there his eyes half closed. A a what what Are you going to do a Martha cried a i Hope. Nothing a the old Man said. A but if boat overtakes us then i must do As Mista Cizniak suggest a you can to kill us find us Here and it la be worse for you than if you let us go a Lings thin eyebrows raised. A find you a he repeated altering his voice in question. The eyes rested on the big port Hole with its Glass swinging wide. A no of. They do not find you. Not until Many Days 1\ tar that a head seemed to be a a spinning. She dared not face Betty. A but perhaps the boat does not overtake us a Ling said solicitous by. A i have seen this happen Many times. This ship look very old very slow like Ling but she is really Strong. Below us Are Good engines. Very new. Very fast. You still have a most excellent most excellent Chance the sinister words rang through Martha a head like a crazy tune. Suppose Cizniak did escape the Cutter what would be bests to be dropped unknowing into the Black water or to stay imprisoned with Cizniak it was Odd How. At this moment she thought of Gerry Neal. It was Odd How she could not hate him. Somehow she wished that he was Here. Even though associated with Cizniak he would have found some Way to help. Yes she had been a fool. A a you a better let me stick with you a he had said. A a you re in something that a bigger than you he had Given her that warning and she had refused it had foolishly believed in her strength to fight something which she could not see. Her mind stumbled longingly Back Over the Days and weeks. She remembered How she and Betty had started out blithely on their vacation to the coast had been so careless As to find themselves stranded in san Diego. And then to be caught up from their innocent Way whirled into something from which they could not extricate themselves. If Only she had never persuaded Betty they should take a vacation together. If Only Detty stirred beside her. A i done to hear anything a she whispered. A a we we must have got away from them a but no sooner had she uttered the words than there was a frightening indescribable sound above As if the cutters fire had struck. Heavy objects were falling to the deck and too men seemed to be shouting at once. The engines slowed almost stopped then trembled into reverse. There was the noise of running feet and then a lurch of the ship As though it had been rammed hard by a weight equal to itself. Martha looked toward Ling. The ancient Oriental had been thrown to his Knees by the lurch. Fascinated. She watched him slowly regaining his feet. A Ling what the Devil a she saw Cizniak in the doorway knew from his tortured face that he and his gang were caught. A shut that door Ling a he started toward the two women. Martha saw his Arm raising a revolver. She closed her eyes cringed closer to Betty just a the sound of a shot filled the room rang hideously against the steel plates.
