DOOMED TO OUTER DARKNESS
Forgetful Youngster Could Only Stand

In one of the Western towns where
there Is a large per cent of foreign
population considerable difficulty was
experienced In getting the registra-
tion of allen women. An Instructor in
the playground In the foreign district
offered her assistance, and In order to
gain a better knowledge of the com-
munity gave out printed slips to the
children on which they were to write
their names, ages and places of birth,
Hiid the same of their fathers and
mothers. She told all the youngsters
explicitly that tfiey must bring the pa-
pers back jvitli Ihetn in the afternoon.
When the children returned one
little fellow stood forlornly at the
gate. To all Invitations to enter he
shook his head stubbornly. One of the
assistant's finally went to him. "Come
on in," she coaxed. "We are going to
learn a wonderful new game this af-
ternoon. Don't you want to help us?"
"No, ma'am, teacher," he said, and
big tears rolled down his cheeks. "No,

"I'm your master I Do you know It
now?" he demanded.
She did not answer him. lie looked
at the red marks left by his fingers
on her cheek, and the sight aroused in
blm a fresh, demoniac passion. Hj
raved, lie shouted all the secrets of
his life to her. He, the thief, the
outlaw, had conquered the world!
Why should he fulfill his compact to
keep the monsters within the bounds
of Skjold fjord?
He had at first intended to. He had
abandoned, under the sway of Ids pns-
alon for the girl, his dreams of world
conquest. With Ida's love, he hod even
Indulged In the Idea of becoming an
ordinary man. He had meant to take
her to America and lose his Identity
there in some peaceful existence.
He had recognized that It is this
same Impulse which fills the world
with oxen for men, patient beasts who
might, with single-hearted purpose, be-
come lords of their fate. But he had
weighed his new hopes with the past
and found them heavier.
Then the girl's coldness, her Indif-
ference, had convinced him tliut win-
ning love was quite different from in-
venting scientific apparatus and dis-
covering new laws. During the long,
silent voyage to Norway he had real-
lied that he could never win her. He
could embrace only a cold form whose
heart was another's.
And, with the awakening from his
dream, the worst in the man—If one
quality was worse than another—had
come to the top. Ho meant to keep
Id* and still achieve his purpose.
Donald's maneuver In bringing the
herd to Norway by the submarine
method had completely deceived Mac-
Beard. He had thought all along that
the monsters had followed hla motor-
boat in obedience to his tuning fork.
He had not heard the call of the
gueen. because Its swift vibrations
Wero audible as sound only for a very
limited distance, In spite of their effect
upon the men of the F55.
Now he resolved to lead the herd
back to the European shores and com-
plete his work of destruction. He had
Scattered the obsolete navy that was
sent out against him. He would go on
Ward with no Idea of mercy. He would
annihilate humanity. He would make
himself sole master of mankind.
And Ida should be his mate, but
Dot bis equal, as he had planned. He
Would vent his rage on her. He would
feach her Ills powers. When he was
the only other human being existent,
then perhaps she would begin to un-
derstand. He shouted all this to her,
He overwhelmed her with sarcasm and
Ida, however, missed the keenness
f the poluts he made. She saw only
* madman, foaming at the mouth, and
she took pride in her sacrifice. She
looked back toward Donald. She saw
him between the two other figures
upon the shore, very little, nnd very
MacBcard saw the look and under-
stood. He raised his hand again to.
strike her, but he refrained. Instead,
ho reached Into the cabin of the mo-
torboat and took his tuning forks
from under the seat. And by that act
of treachery he wrote the last page
of his history.
He slung them about his neck, and.
taking the rod, he sounded the G note
to call the swarm together.
The note rang true ncross the wa-
ters. Exhausted by their efforts, the
monsters were incapable any longer of
condensing the hydrogen, but the Im-
pulse to reply remained. From every
part of the Inland sea they swarmed
The sea rose into a choppy surge.
The motorboat, riding the wnves like
a cork, heaved and pitched. Ida saw
MacBcard, his eyes alight with tri-
umph, his face blaring with hatred,
now above her, and now below, as he
sat In the pitching stern.
But the death of the queen had been
the death-call of the swarm; Instinc-
tively they were aware of It, and the
single purpose that had animated the
herd was gone. Anarchy had replaced
order. The swarm had become mere
blind mechanism, and devoid of pur-
Anarchy possessed them, and It was
furious, as everywhere. So It Is In the

MacBeard, seated In the stern, felt
five sharp pricks upon the hand thnt
dangled toward the water. He drew It
. back hurriedly. He Imagined thnt
some Insect had stung him. Then a
flipper lashed him across the fact.
Two more seized him about the body.
An Instant later, and he was out of
i the boat, which, released from his
weight and from the sea devils, righted
Itself again. Then he began the strug-
gle for life which he had always
feared. The nightmare that had brood-
ed over his dreams had at last come
true. The Infuriated monsters had
turned upon the author of the call!
He clung to the gunwale, calling
wildly for aid. He heard Ida's screams.
He knew that her Impulse was to save
him. Perhaps that was at bitter as
the physical torment; perhaps some
Inkling of n higher law did reach his
mind before the end.
But If it did. It was only a momen-
tary flash nf Insight.
He felt the cold embrace of the leath-
ery bodies. He heard the snapping

preposterous—all that about the sea

Beard. who used to have newspaper
rows with poor old Masterman. As
likely as not we'll see him haunting
the Inventors' club when we get back,
shrieking, and tossed Into the air, from i quite Ignorant of the part he has
beast to beast. Ills cries were so fren-
zied that they even reached the ears
of those who watched on the shore.
He shrieked and fought, but he had
as much chance for life as primitive
man caught by a herd of dinosaurs.
For a few moments his bobbing body
was visible, grotesquely sprawled upon
the reddening wnves. Then It was rent
limb from limb.
It disappeared, and, fighting over
their prey, the sea devils played the
Inst act of their own drama. They fell
upon each other. It was the tragedy
of the hive—the annual massacre of j
the drones; only they were all drones, j
Nature had no more use for them, now i
thnt their queen was gone.
Never had such a spectacle been
seen by man before. The entire face
of the Inland sea was a tumult of
fighting monsters. The dead grew Into
visibility as they became thicker. The
floating patches of white almost ob-
scured the waves. And still the fight
became more frenzied.
They tore each other and them-
selves, they lashed the waves Into
fonin; animal debris floated from end
to end of the fjord. As the dead drift-
ed toward the shore the struggle be-
came more furious In the heart of the
Gradually It subsided. The last of
the herd was gone. The battle that
was to decide the fate of the world
had been a civil one, and fought out
without mnn's agency.
The lnsh of the waves drove the
light motorboat toward the cliffs. It
stranded not five hundred feet from
where Donald and his friends, awe-
struck, had watched the progress of
the titanic conflict. They ran toward
It and pulled Ida from the thwarts. It
had seemed Incredible that she could

"But—hang it, Donald, how does
Miss Kennedy happen to he here?"
"Why, wasn't she on board the Be-
otia?" Donald replied. "At any rate.
If It's all true, what have we got to
show for It?"
He had placed his arm across his
breast, and at that moment he felt the
crinkle of dampened paper In his Inner
pocket. He pulled out—the two pages
of Masterman's letter.
Donald unfolded It. It was quite
legible, In spite of the stains of sen
water; but now for the first time he
realized that he held not one page, but
two. They had become stuck together
In some manner, and Donald had not
perused the second page.
It was In the form of a postscript,
and was the last sheet of the original
manuscript, which Masterman, in his
characteristic way, had inserted after
the first. He had written:
But thank Ood, Donald, mj boy. man
will triumph after all. I thought the mon-
sters were Invulnerable, that nothing
could oppose them. But the F-ord knew
what he wua doing when he made them.
There will be only three weeks of suf-
fering for man. Donald—three weeks.
V'or the creatures live for their queen;
they can hardly be said to have Indepen-

and the queen has a life-span of three
weeks alone. When she dies the old
unarm destroys Itself. If the queen can
be captured, all will be well. The queen
has three weeks tn which to grow to ma-
turity fulfil the purpoa* of her existence, j
What a tragedy! Of <our e time may
seem longer to her, but we deem our sev-
enty years all too short. We are saved.
The letter rambled on, hut Donald,
without finishing it, hnnded It to Da-
vies, who rend It and gave it back.
"If MacBeard had known that—" he
