Captain Joel Holcomb liuil been cone
n yeur on Ills lust whaling voyage be-
fore either his niece, Hboda, or ber
lover, Vttnee Deverll, heurtl from him.
During the twelve months Rhotlu had
lived with it distant relative uml Vunce
had held a modest clerkship in a ship- |
ping office.
The sen bad been the roving ground j
of Vance's father for many a year. He
had been the owner of a whaler. :
When be died ubout all he left was
the good ship Defiance. She was not
as good ns new by any means, how- j
ever, and the executors were about to
sell the vessel for what she would
bring as old junk when Captain Hol-
comb had come along. It was through !
this circumstance that young Deverll 1
became acquainted with Rhodu. his
niece. Thenceforward she filled all
his thoughts and this fact Induced
Vance to favor the uncle In a plan he
had formed.
"Tell you what, lad," Captain Hol-
comb had said, "the Defiance can be
made entirely seaworthy and I have
enough laid by to make her so. Here's
my proposition: you furnish the ship,
I'll refit her, then fifty-fifty on what
conies of a venture to the South seas,
say around Polynesia. I know the dis-
trict. it abounds In spouters, and as to
ambergris, It's there that precious
spoil abounds. One lucky voyage and
we're both made men in a money way."
So the battered old Defiance started
for the Southern sens and Vance and
Hboda dreamed, and loved, and hoped.
Vance had only his limited salary to de-
pend on if they married, so they await-
ed some word from their venturesome
nrgonnut.
It had come at last—a letter. From
what Vance could surmise it had been
picked up by u mull steamer from a
bout coming off shore from somewhere
in the vicinity of the Papuan group of
islands. It started out with the J
words, "I'm about to tell you about
our cruise, and I'll start in by saying
In an encouraging way we had greasy
luck."
"What does that mean?" Inquired
Uhoda, to whom Vance showed the let-
ter.
"It's a whalers' term and means that
they were successful in finding plenly
of whales and secured a rich cttrgo of
sperm oil," explained Vance. "For two
pages, though, the rest of the letter is
undecipherable. It must have been
wet through, immersed in sea water
somewhere, for the pencillngs are till
blurred and blotted out. Only the last
page is clear again. Listen, dear," and
he read aloud:
"You must come therefore to Mi-
mosa Island, where, as 1 tell you, I
am, and I need your help in getting
away. Come alone by yawl from Amp-
ti, and be sure to paint your nose red.
As I have explained to you I am a
king, but I need a prime minister to
help me out of my fix."
"Jargon! 'King,' 'prime minister,'
'red nose!'" quoted Vance. "It sounds
like the ravings of a madman."
"Perhaps the blotted out pages ex-
plained?" suggested Iihoda, and after
u lengthy consultation it was decided
that Vance must certainly try and lUiil
this mysterious and uncharted Mimosa
island.
It was not an easy tusk and It
strained his resources to reach the pre-
sumed vicinity of the old captain's
whereabouts and hire others to assist
him to his quest.
Vunce was greeted by a half-nude,
ferocious appearing crowd, bearing
spears, clubs and darts. They were
about to attack liiin when their atten-
tion was focused 011 his carmine-be-
daubed nose. lie was led to a rude
habitation and there, seuted on u
broad dais, more rubicund than ever,
his nasal appendage more than usual
aglow, was Captain Ilolcomb.
it took the latter some time to im-
part to Vunce the story of his adven-
tures. Laden with "greasy spoil" rep-
resenting a fortune the Defiance had
encountered a storm. Then pestilence
hud swept away the crew. It wus Just
by chance that the sole survivor, the
captain, had been able to navigate the
dismantled vessel Into a cove at an un-
frequented purt of Mimosa Island.
"She's there now," said the caplain,
"but I have so played on the supersti-
tious fears of my subjects that they
believe she is haunted, for when they
first discovered me I played some
tricks on them with fireworks, a vlc-
trola and an electric battery which Im-
pressed them that I was a sort of wiz-
ard. They made me their king. I told
them of the coming of my red nosed
relative and they believe red noses to
be a distinctive mark of great dignlt
und power. They will never let me go
willingly and my escape and the con-
veyance of the Defiance to some
friendly port Is now to be your task."
Vane received explicit orders from
the captain anil rowed away that
ti I gin At the settlement he engaged
a steam launch to proceed back to the
Islam! after dark. All due preparations
were made for towing the whaler to a
safe port the following evening.
Am' ii|i"ti that occasion, claiming
thai Ished to exorcise the haunt-
ing spirits, the captain was allowed to
visit li cove alone. By midnight the
old -hi as trie of the Island and
two on lis Inter the ex king and
Van re welcomed home by pretty
Ithoil w th the proceeds from theli
grens Hick sufficient to keep them all
in ci 11 m t for life.

within our power to make Norman
the University City—a bigger, better
livelier, hustling, wide-awake little
city—a city where all will want to
live because its business houses are
courteous, kind and attractive to the
wants of their customers; where
mothers and fathers will want to
come and educate their children. So
because we want all of these things

lady. When he learned she knew the
Colllngwoods he had difficulty In re-
straining himself from seb.ing the
placid little woman In his arms and
racing with her to the ballroom, where
he hud just s>'en Audrey whirling in
the arms of a stranger. Later he
wished he had done It. After a dig-
nified tour of the entire house they
learned that Audrey had gone to her
room. Next day. when Boss was due
to cull upon his life saver, Mrs. Den-
ton. she was III. On the next visit the
Dentons had quit the hotel.
Then the Slndes arrived from the
West. Arabella Slnde was an old
friend of Boss' married sister. She In-
vited him to tllne and he accepted at
once. Ills heart pounded when he saw
Arabella and her mother bow In a
friendly way to Senator Collingwood
and his dnnghter.
He had been bidden to dine with the
Sludes again and was pondering the
matter, his toes ever busy in tha
sand. A black object decorated with
one white button rewarded his In-
dustry. Carelessly he bent nnd tugged
a serpentine strip of black chamois
from the clutching sand. It was a
money belt with a broken buckle, and
held a large sum of money.
"Some prior overseas chap." he mut-
tered as he laid the money across i
bare knees to count It. His hands I
trembled. Was the owner alive or at I
the bottom?
A clue! A postal savings certificate. J
Ross bent close to decipher the
washed-out signature: "William S. j
Collingwood" was written upon the
certificate, which had been purchased |
at the local post office a few months I
previous.
Excited, Infatuated, Ross for the I
moment failed to reason that postal I
savings and riches did not go together.
He instantly believed the money be- I
longed to Senator Collingwood. It was |
no more than natural that he should l
wave a peremptory hand as Audrey gal- |
loped back tip the beach. She drew I
up with much sawing on the hit, her
finely-marked eyebrows arched with
surprise.
"She remembers me," was his first
exultant thought as he held the
money towards her. Her blue eyes
rounded.
"Did you find It?" she asked In the
sweetest voice in the world.
"Yes," he answered, a little unstead-
ily. "It belongs to William S. Col-
lingwood. Is he a relative of yours?"
Her horse was curvetting, so he
couldn't tell whether she resented his
knowledge of her name.
"No—I think not," she replied
thoughtfully. "My father's name Is
Benjamin." Her eyes appreciated his
bronzed athletic shoulders.
"Oh!" was his non-committal re-
sponse.
She flashed him a heavenly smile be-
fore her horse whirled away. Ross
didn't dine with Arabella that eve-
ning.
Audrey and her father walked up
Main street. The senator wished very
much to learn who "William Colling-
wood" was.
Strolling in the opposite direction
was a young chap In white flannels
who could tell tfie senator all about
his namesake. Ross' heart beat
quickly. Would she recognize him?
She did more; she stopped and in-
troduced "Mr. Ross Balcom" to her
father. Hadn't she been to Arabella
Slade and learned all about him?
It was a happy man who led the way
to a tent by the water, where "Cap'n
Bill," the lobster fisherman, lived •
lonely life.
" 'Twas every cent I had In the
world," the stooped old man repeated
to the senator what he had already
told Ross and the postmaster In the
morning, exhibiting the money belt
delightedly. "Funny 'bout them white
buttons, too, gettln' the young chap's
'tention. You see, the black ones
wore off and I sewed on some from an
old shirt—wish he'd take some pay,
though." he sighed regretfully.
Boss was taking his "pay," never
fear. He had drawn Audrey aside
and was making up tar lost time.
"My dear," announced the good-
hearted senator pompously, "I find
'Captain' Colllngswood Is a distant re-
lation." His voice lowered—"We
mustn't lose track of the old boy."
And they didn't. Six months later
the old fisherman Journeyed out west
to the wedding. A black belt with
three white buttons carried all his
worldly goods.

A Chalmers Starts and Runs
as well in December as in June
O many cars run well in J une^ and not in
December. Most prefer the warm weather.
A Chalmers starts on a cold day almost
instantly on account of its llot Spot and Ram's-
horn, and runs velvety "on all six," with 110 visible
vibration.
Ilot Spot vaporizes the raw gas "to a fine cloud,"
warms it up, and Ram's-horn dispatches it evenly,
quickly, scientifically to all six cylinders.
They render a magnificent service in over-
coming vibration, which is the origin of yo% ot
the troubles in a motor car.
That is why a Chalmers of today runs so many
miles with such freedom from attention, * Service
Department records supply abundant proof that
Chalmers is one of the few great cars ol the world.
