Thq great vessel stood ed whea crossing.the harbor from the out against the ,vapt velvet-black prdraenado pier to the river-mouth In screen of the nlglit, a sliio of pale a high wind, excursionists having flame. And even /as Captain Jones been Jtnown on such occasions to. ask ' if theVe was any dagger; and as Captain ,7ones had done the trip six days a weiBlc, in summer and three days a week'in winter (transformed then into a 'market boat) for twenty years, his despondency at this fiuestion was excusable. But when war broke out tlie Board Of Trade, took a' back seat. The Vic. was giyeri a pretty searchlight of her own, and a few charges of e.\plosives lor destroying wreckage. and told that she might niii away and play oa the deeper waters beyond; and this is the story of her first splendid adventure. , � �� * One - wet and gloomy night Captain Jones was keeping his usual course in the open, some twelve or thirteen miles out, with a smother of spray flying over the bridge of his little boat, rolling sponsons under. The short channel waves, through which a liaer would advance without a tremor, tossed the Vies upward, smacked her viciously down, threw her side- paddle box, giving now and again a/ word ol instruction as to the steering; But the mate was also an old hand; not for nothing had he brought the Vic to an inch alongside piers and buoys and heaving pontoons in tricky tides and currents tor the last ten years, and tonight he'raanipulated the wheel with the sure, touch of a master mariner. � *  The commander of the submarine, puzziied by a ffaint rhythmic pulsation, a thud-thud-thud that he had so tar only .'aguely noticed, turned to gaze seawards. To his utter amazement ,h'e beheld, almost on top of him, a small paddle-steamer, roiling and tossing and doing her best for England, lie had the impression that she was trying to ram him, and was inclined What the Press Agents Say AT THE MAJESTIC "Merely Mary Ann" (he well knnwn mm"i1y will bo shown l),v tlu^ KcUhiu-dLs JontKlit.

One or two olf the changes may bo announced even before March 1. Secretary of State Robert Lansing, who .succeeded Bryan in .lunc, V.nTy, has been restive lor several months. As a matter ot fact, Mr. Lansing is not really the Secretary of State. Mr. Wilson is. And it is well known in Washington that the President do'es not want a Secretary of State whp has ideas ..of bis own, especially if those ideas conflict will) the Wilson ideas. Close friendu of Jlr. Lansing say that his ideas ilo conflict with the Wilson ideas, and that the most recent conflict was in connection with the timing of the American peace note. Mr. Lunsiug would have hold it tor an opportune moment. Secretary of the Treasury William G. .McAdoo wants to resign as soon as it can be done without embarrassment to his father-in-law. President Wilson. The reason is, according to Mr. McAdco'K friends, that he cannot afford to stay in his preseiit rather poorly paid iiositiou. Secretary of War Newton 1). liak-er, the most ambitious man in the cabinet, hates soldiers and things military, and he does not see how as Secretary ot War he can make the kind of a national rei)utatinn ho wants to make. The plan is to shift him to the IDeparlmeut of .lustice. Attorney General Thomas Watt Gregory likes Texas and prefers it as a residence to Washington. liis desire is to be appointed to the United States Court of Appeals. When this is done, Mr. 13aker will' succeed him.
