A a in yes i think of commission pictures. A she replied. I a Young Man of Talent to was devoted to his \ alls nets Case it was literally True. To paint a picture for i own please take his own time about it to feel himself unfettered alike in the Choice and treatment of his subject. Then and then Only he used to say it was possible for him to do rail Justice to the Power that was in him. Then Only As his daughter would admit when appealed to for Contr Matioli of the feet he was won to work with genuine Industry. Yet or. Alleene Seldom found Leisure to produce More than one such picture in the year and there were sometimes years when even that one was not forthcoming. His hands in tenth were always More than sufficiently full of those commissions which he professed to hate. Hate them As he might however. And grumble Over them As he might he bound either to accept them or forfeit his a a i a a Stran take i i miss Alleyne Jade no reply i a but its a self indulgent Money making degenerate age a said the Painter philosophic Lar. A and the True spirit of Art is Well nigh think my love i will take a cup of and a taoist of Curacao before i m up to ? a to dress a said miss Alleyne. A i thought turned upon him Rith ant oath. A who says in a going to give Fiffie answered savagely. A wait till you see me do it sir 1�?� and now the Stormy petrel her steam being suddenly turned off had ceased to move. All on deck stood silent motionless waiting with although the stars and then the Brief Twilight being already past the engineers piled on the Coal the Captain gave the word and the Stormy petrel steered straight for Charleston. And now it is n ally a and extinct Strong c you dined at Home to night a nah i forgot to Tell you before up Bathurst has asked me to join him at the Carl suspended breath. They could hear the Captain of the Cruiser issuing his rapid orders Trace through the fog the outline of the Quarter boats As they wet lowered into the water hear the splash of the oars the boisterous gaiety of the men. De Benham uttered a suppressed groan and the perspiration stood in great beads upon his forehead. He was powerless and the sense of his powerlessness was intolerable a will you let them Board us a he said Over Clear objects How Ever Are discernible at some distance and ships Are sighted continually. But As none of these lie directly in Piaf path and As he knows his own boat to invisible night beyond a certain a radius the 1 Captain holds on his course unhesitatingly. Jet the meanwhile the hours seem to Fly. The Stormy petrel now Clearing the Waters at full Speed stretches herself like a racer to her work fling hoarsely pointing to the boats now half Way fore Captain Between the two vessels. The Spray Over her bows and Speed to a on gallantly. About mid night the stare begin to Cloud Oyer and the night was noun connection. Now or. Aii Eyne was not a popular Painter. He was not an r. A., nor even an a. R. A. He exhibited very Little for his works being executed to order went Home to their owners for the most part As soon As finished. His reputation in Short High As it was scarcely strayed beyond the limits of a certain Small Circle of aristocratic patrons and or. Alleyne was not the Man to give up that a a audience fit though few a for the wider Arena but less certain issues of Public favor. He knew the value of his connection and fully a f recited the advantages accruing thereunto t maintained him in Comfort and had he cared to work harder and sigm less won id have maintained him in affluence. It ministered to the gratification of his tastes and it opened to him the sort of society he liked Best to mix in. For about seven months out of every twelve for inst nce or. Alleyne would staying at the country place of one or other of his patrons painting Park Glades ancestral Oaks a Lisa Eihan Halls terraces galleries and All those wonder til landscape and architectural subjects in which our old English Homes Are Rich beyond All parallel. Treated on these occasions with All the honors of a guest he Rode and drove and dined and was invited out with his hosts and fared like a Prince. At other times when not actually staying at the great House he would Lodge at the stewards or some neighbouring farm or establish himself As at Cillin fora in the Village inn and have his daughter with him. In the Winters he stayed at Home still painting commissions from sketches made upon the spot dining oat frequently and spending most of his evenings at Nis club. Or. Alleyne in Short led a very pleasant easy life and amused himself grumbling at the sources of his Prosperity. Still As it has already been stated the artist did occasionally make time to produce what he called a a Holiday picture a and this Holiday picture if not bought up before it left his studio was sure to sold the Day of the private View. It had not happened to him indeed for Many a Long year not perhaps since he had become a father and a widower to have one of theae pictures left upon his hands. Now it so fell out that ton. Yon Are not disappointed my love a miss Alleyne smiled and would not allow that she was in the least disappointed. A you know of old a she said a that i do not mind dining she did not add however that accustomed As she was to his absence she had of late so lost her old buoyancy of spirits that she had come almost to dread the recurrence of these solitary evenings. A the is a gentlemanly looking Man a said or. Alleyne presently while sipping his Coffee and Curacao. A who dear papa a a emr. a did you see him a a for a moment. I went up to learn who had bought the picture and the Secretary pointed him out to me As he was leaving the even to pipe .b.? has the taste to appreciate it a extended hand said miss Alleyne. A Well he has had the taste to buy it a said 9 withal proves nothing. The Captain grinned put his lips again to the to amp shouted Down to the Engineer. A fall Speed ahead a ind with one quivering leap the Stormy petrel shot out again upon her course like a greyhound let Loose. A there or. Super cargo a said the Captain grimly a a that a my Way of giving in. Our american Friend will hardly desert his boats upon the open sea in such a night As this for the fun of capturing a blockade runner. At this moment a red Flash and a tremendous report declared the prompt indignation of the Federal commander. But almost before those rolling echoes had died away the Stormy petrel was half a mile ahead and not an outline of the Cruiser was visible through the fog. A a was Al now a said or. Zachary pol ter a a that a what i Call sinful extravagance. I Cal cd late them chaps will come to want Good powder and shot some Day Afore they de Benham went up to the Captain with thickens but there is still no Mist upon the sea. Toward two in the morning their Patent Lead tells that they Are nearing Shore. Then the Pilot gives orders to a slow Down the engines a a breathless silence prevails every Eye is on the watch every ear on the alerts Ana momentarily expecting to catch their first glimpse of the blockading Squadron they steal slowly and cautiously on their Way. And now the sense of time becomes suddenly reversed. Up to this Point the hours have one like minutes Bat now the minutes go a like hours. Beacons there Are none to guide them for the Harbor lights have All been abolished since the arrival of the enemy a ships outside the bar but those on Board begin to ask themselves whether some outline of the coast ought not Ere this to visible then i comes and a Phal Veslak in his fancy or some one May have advised him or he May have been to the place and bought it for the a a que Importe t his Cheque will none the less f v your Best picture v rising to go pinched daughters ear and said smilingly a nah Pussy you always think the pictnim#heibe8t a Captain Hay a he said frankly a i spoke just now under excitement i beg your a nay papa or. Alleyne his last a just so. Ideal e artist Des a a a a a a a a a Early ing of 1861, or. Alleyne Solace himself in s taking up a Haa been s intervals of his other Laborscertain neglected Canvas that standi ing with its face to the Wall for years and falling into a Sadden enthusiasm for the subject As one is Apt to do with a sketch or poem Long Laid aside and forgotten he finished it at a White heat and got u off in time for the Academy. Having been at work upon it with closed a prs up to the last moment he did not this time sell it off the easel but it was sold and the red Star was on the Frame before the rooms in Trafalgar Square had been thrown open More than an hour to that favored multitude whom the president invites to the private View. And the purchaser of the picture was or. Hardwicke. It happened of course through the Mere Accident of taste. Or. Hardwicke knew nothing of or. Alleyne except reputation and or. Alleyne knew nothing of or. Hardwicke except that he remembered to have heard the name but could not Tell in what connection. I a the a he went a Lyon always think it is the Ponds missing his the Loving woman his Side wife or daughter As the Case May sees his work with the eyes of her heart Ana finds no flaw. That is one of the few pleasant Laws that hold this uncomfortable world a generalize As much As you like papa a said miss Alleyne with something of her old pretty wilful manner a i maintain that a the Athene of Pericles is the Best picture you Ever or. Alleyne stopped with his hand on the door. A the Way a he said a did you Ever hear a Oung Blyth speak of his cousins sister miss Hardwicke a a i did not even know that there was a miss Hardwicke. What of her a a what of her ? simply that she is the most Beautiful woman i Ever saw in my and with this he closed the door and was gone. Miss Alleyne looked after him As if scarcely realizing the full meaning of his words. The most Beautiful woman he had Ever seen in his life it was a sweeping assertion such an assertion As one accepts for the most part with a certain degree of silent qualification. Perhaps miss Alleyne was so qualifying it in her own mind at All events she sat for a longtime Kive and Pale and earnestly thinking. Then ving the dead Geranium leaves in her Lap she began slowly shredding them to pieces shredding them to pieces and casting the fragments into the fireplace one one. It the most Beautiful woman he bad Ever seen in his life a and probably one of the richest women too Beautiful and Rich and or. Hardwicke a sister. Her mind kept travelling round those three facts with a persistency that was painful to herself. She went Over them again and again and again. And so the dusk came on and found her still thinking. The Captain grunted and yielded his hand somewhat unwillingly. A it is not the super cargo a place or. Deben Ham to question the discretion of the Captain a he said with some asperity and turned away. De Benham accepted the rebuke in silence knowing that he had deserved it. The night passed Over without further incident and five of clock next morning the Stormy petrel was within eight hours of her destination. Both Captain and Pilot had calculated on making considerably less Way in the time and had allowed amp much wider margin for detours and delays so that now they were not a Little perplexed at finding themselves so near the Ena of their journey. To go on was impossible for they could Only Hope to slip through the cordon under cover of the night. And yet to remain where they were was almost &8�baa. However they had no alternative so after some Little consultation they agreed to lie to for the present keeping up their steam meanwhile Ana holding themselves in readiness to repeat the manoeuvres of yesterday whenever any vessel Hove in sight. The fog had now cleared off. The Day was Brilliant the sky one speckles dome of rates est Blue the Sun an intolerable splendor fast climbing to the Zenith. The blockade runners who would have Given much for dark and Cloudy weather revenged themselves saying uncivil things of the glorious luminary till she a bound yer see a it a chapter xxxv. Butting the blockade. A guess its the Roanoke a observed the Pilot presently a Long Black horizontal Cloud on thai horizon warned them of a Steamer in the offing whereupon they edged away in the opposite direction As quickly As possible. And now their troubles had begun again. Sometimes it was a frigate sometimes a merchant ship sometimes a Steamer sometimes a Sloop of War but it was always something and the Stormy petrel was perpetually Sheering off to one or other Point of the Compass. Toward Sunset or. Zachary Polter begun to look grave. A guess we Shane to know whar we air if this game goes on much longer a said he. A it Arentt in Natur not to get out of ones Reck Ning Arter dodging and de i Atins All Day Long in this still there was no help for it. Dodge and deviate the Stormy petrel must if she was to kept out of harms Way and even so with All her dodging and deviating it seemed Well nigh miraculous that she should escape observation. At length As evening Drew on and Jothi Jii he horizon reparado a i both Captain and Pilot neared the horizon for the final run comes that other questions have they indeed so a dodged and deviated that the Pilot has lost his reckoning still the Stormy petrel creeps on still each fresh sounding brings her into shallower water a still those eager watchers stare into the darkness knowing that the tide will turn and the Dawn drawing on Ere Long and that after Sunrise neither Speed nor skill can serve them. At length when suspense is sharpened almost to pain there comes into sight a faint indefinite something which presently resolves itself into the outline of a Large vessel lying at Anchor with her head to the wind and a faint spark of Light at her prow. Or. Zachary Polter slaps his thigh triumphantly. A that ar�?T8 the senior officers ship a he whispers. A she lies jest Tew Miles off the Mouth of Charleston Hardorp and to show a Light to her own cruisers. Darned now if we ainu to fixed it uncommon tidy this time a and now not one one but. As it were simultaneously the whole line of blockades comes into sight some on the right some to the left of that which shows the Light. Of these count six besides the Flag ship All under was Oad gliding slowly almost imperceptibly to san fro in the darkness. Between some two of these Stormy petrel Mast make her final run and upon this Point there ensues a momentary altercation Between Captain and Pilot the former insisting that the widest passage lies Between two cruisers a Little Way off to the right and the latter pre Ferring to go in Between the Flag ship and the nearest blockade on the left. A a Tell yer Cape no says he emphatically a yer downright wrong this it. I guess we shall git threw As right As a fiddle but if we air coached sight of was Al then we know that one of the tews at Anker and can to run Arter us. Besides the Flag ship Allers lies Tighist in with the so the Captain gives in sulkily As is his wont steam is again got up to the highest pressure and the Stormy petrel rushes on at full Speed. Then the two ships Between which lies her perilous path grow momentarily clearer and nearer and a dark Ridge of coast becomes dimly visible beyond them. And now the supreme moment is at hand. Straight and fast the Good boat flies her propellers throbbing furiously like a pulse at nigh rever and the water hissing past her bows. Now every Board holds his breath. Now the Flag ship and Cruiser the one about half a mile to the right the other about half a mile to the left lie out a few Hundred Yards ahead now for the briefest second the Stormy petrel is in a line with both now she has left them As Many Hundred Yards astern and now All at once she is in the midst of the current and washing straight at that Long White Ridge is were made i of boiling surf which Marks the position of the bar. Even As he said the words the american dictate is sold Juliet he said when i loomed out dist inter closer within pistol shot Home that afternoon. Deck to deck. A of course it is sold papa a replied his daughter lovingly. A i never doubted that. Has sir Edwin Fletcher bought it a a a not a stranger. A or. A amp Rodwic Kesh fancy i know the name and thing about him a i do you remember and t miss Alleyne turned to the window and began plucking the dead leaves from her Gerani the Captain of the Stormy petrel answered the hostile summons Mil a May a sir a he shouted through speaking trumpet. Irwin re to a then he Cal his called Down the tube to those in urns. A where does he live a she asked. A the is Down in the red Book for a House in the regents Park a place in Kent and some warehouse in the a then i think i know. He is a Cousin of or. Archibald nah a a Man of some position the engine room a lease her a a you wont Stop the boat. Captain Hay a exclaimed de Benham breathlessly a i have stopped her sir a snarled the Captain. Then thundered a second mandate from the threatening phantom alongside. A play to for boats in to which the Captain again responded if de Benham ground his Teeth. A a but god help of charts soundings and so Forth had pretty Well satisfied themselves As to their position and or. Zachary Polter knowing at what hour it would High tide on the bar had calculated the exact time for going into the Harbor. A Atwould no to amiss Cape no said this latter a if you was to change that White we skit for Ruthin dark nor if you sir a turning to de Benham a was to get quit of that Light suit altogether for the next few the Captain muttered something about a unnecessary nonsense a but went to his Cabin All the same to change the obnoxious garment. Whereupon or. Zachary Polter gave it As his opinion that if the Captain and All on Board were to Black the Whites of their eyes and put their Teeth in mourning it would not More than the occasion warranted. After this an unlucky cock which had travelled with them in the character of a deck passenger All the Way from Liverpool but was add Jove a says the Captain drawing a Long breath a a we done it a a done to Yew make Tew Sartin Cape a till we re Over the bar a replies or. Zachary Polter. A we ainu to out of gunshot Range yet Over the bar they Are however Ere Long Safe and successful. And now the steam whistle is blown twice shrill and fearlessly and two White lights Are hung out Over the bows of the vessel for their Pilot has been in beforehand knows the signals necessary to observed inside the cordon. Were these signals neglected the Stormy petrel would fired upon the Confederate forts. And now too lights Are lit and tongues Are loosened and even Captain Frank Hay a bends for once promising the men a double allowance of grog and inviting de Benham and Heneage to a bottle of Champagne in his own Cabin. A Long irregular line of coast has meanwhile emerged As it were into the Gray of Dawn
