THE LAST VOYAGE OF

The story open* with the introduction
of John Stephens, adventurer, n Masau

Valparaiso, Chile. Being Interested in
mining operations in Bolivia, he wbm de-
nounced by Chile as an InsurrertloidHt
and an a consequence wuh hiding At 1>1h

Stephens resetted the young woman from

her. Admiral of the Peruvian navy eon-

been declared between (.'Idle and Peru
and offered him the office of captain. 11«-

Chilean vessel, should be raptured.

tinted face of De Nova, barely visible
through the enveloping smoke of his
cigarette. The latter nodded cheer-
fully, as though he Interpreted my

tho whaleman's nasal voice rising
shrill with anger. "I don't have to

"There is liable to be fighting

sharply, fearing a quarrel, "without
comrades falling out about their be-
lief. Leave that for lubbers ashore
to argue over. Now tell me what ar-
rangements have been made for board-
ing the Esmeralda?"
Tuttle spat Into the sawdust, his
gaze still on De Nova.
"Two boats concealed beneath the
piling of the Mercantile Company's
coal wharf; a whaleboat and a cutter."
"A dozen rifles, six In each boat."
I arose to my feet, glancing at my
watch in the dim light. He had not
given me the customary "sir" in any
of his replies, yet I ignored the omis-
sion, willing for the time being to
*ink formality for the sake of action.
"Very well, Mr. Tuttle. Have your

strongly in our favor, if we succeeded

war vessel in the harbor had steam

ship could hope to overhaul us when
once fairly at sea.
I gave the personnel of the crew
Tuttle had collected brief considera-
tion. They were no rougher than I
should naturally expect men to be
who were volunteering for such a task.
Resides, Jack ashore and Jack at sea
are two widely differing personalities;
once sobered and on shipboard,
steadied somewhat by the perils of
their position, and exhilarated by the
promised reward, they would doubtless
prove efficient enough. Tuttle might
require a lesson in sea etiquette, and,
if he did. I felt perfectly confident of
my ability to administer it promptly
and forcibly. As for De Nova. I had
no doubt that he would prove himself
a good man. So. altogether, my spirits
rose as I thus contemplated a definite
plan of action.
The movement on the water was
only the merest ripple, with the riding
lights of the varions ships at anchor
reflected back us from a giant mir-
ror. Two vessels, a full-rigged ship
and a small schooner, lay close In
shore, apparently deserted, their decks

Ing up skeleton-like and ghostly.
Farther out, and somewhat to the left,
a yellow lantern, perhaps in the bow
of a guardboat, bobbed about, zig zag-
ging here and there like some erratic
star. It was some time before I could
locate with any certainty the partic-
ular vessel I sought. The harbor was
littered with sea craft of every de-
scription. and my knowledge regarding
the Esmeralda was most meager, be-
ing merely her point of anchorage, and
that she was a large steam-yacht,
Finally, into the focus of the leveled
glasses there crept indistinctly the

more plainly visible beneath the green
radiance of her riding lamp. Lights
were showing faintly through several
portholes amidships, certain proof thai
she was not entirely deserted; yet
the cabins aft were dark, and the only
moving figure I could distinguish with
certainty was slowly pacing back and
forth along the lee rail of the poop.
Suddenly, out from the enveloping
smudge, came a shower of sparks
and a red glare, and, a moment later.
I traced the outlines of a steam launch
cleaving the black water. It quickly
vanished behind the fog wreaths hang-
ing to seaward, the faint sound of its
churning dying away, leaving the si j

ness to prevent the discharge of flre-! space here, the Mercantile Company's
sheds standing some 110 feet back of
the shore line, and their wharf for
the unloading of barges extending
more than 50 feet out Into the harbor.
I could dimly perceive a great crane
at the farther extremity, with dan-
gling buckets, outlined against the
sky. The night was too dark for me
to decipher the face of my watch, yet
It could not now be long before the
arrival of the men. I crouched down
beside a post to await their coming,
once again searching the harbor with
The company at last arrived by twos
from out the enveloping gloom, silent-
ly grouping themselves amid the shad-
ows. I could distinguish an occasional
gruff cough, and the shuffling of feet,
but there was no sound of conversa-
tion or hilarity. Evidently De Nova
had sufficiently sobered them to their
duty. At last one man detached
himself from among the crowd
and moved stealthily forward. I met
him at the shore end of the wharf,
peered Into his face, half concealed
beneath tho visor of his cap, until I
recognized the fellow

are assigned to?"
"Ay, ay, sir."
"Very well, then; get the boats out,
and the crews aboard. Not a sound,
remember, for there are guards patrol

I must confess this preparatory work
was well and smartly accomplished,
the men the merest silent shadows as
they hauled the two hidden boats

took their assigned places at the oarr.

Latter HaH Created a Situation Which
Left the Chief Executive No Alter-
native — Work of Conserva-
tion to Go On,
President Taft's letter to Mr. Pin-
chot was absolutely conclusive. Few
fair-minded men in the country, no
matter how earnest they may be as
supporters of the conservation policy,
how profound may be their apprecia-
tion of Mr. Pinchot's splendid and val-
uable services to that wise and bene-
ficial policy, will seriously contend
that the president had any conceivable
alternative to the course he adopted.
No retention of Mr. Plnchot was
possible after the series of acts
wihch culminated in the letter to Dol-
liver and the serious reflections it coi
tained on the president and the at
torney general. A sense of self re-
spect, of the dignity of the chief mag-
istracy, of the necessity of discipline
and unity in the executive depart-
ments, absolutely dictated the dismis-
sal of the chief forester. He has no
one but himself to blame for the out-
come of an amazing interdepartmental
controversy which too long threatened
demoralization and scandal.
Mr. Plnchot may or may not have
deliberately "ridden for a fall"—fu-
ture developments may throw some
light on the puzzling question why a
man so able, so intelligent, so effi-
cient, created a situation in which his
dismissal from office became impera-

I became conscious of a pallid human
face gleaming faintly through the
dark. Instantly I leaped toward it,
with such force as to send the heavily
laden boat swirling forward, the heav-
ing men plunging face downward Into
the water. There was a startled ex-
clamation in Spanish, a short-aim
blow shot Into a dimly revealed, half-
famlllar face, a fierce grip at the
throat, and the two of us were on the
sand, grappling like wild cats. Out
of the water, dripping from their
bath, the two seamen came to my aid,
and, between us, we pinned the fellow
to helpless silence.
"Toss him Into the boat," I said,
panting from exertion. "He will be
safer with us than left ashore."
It appeared even darker out on the
water than when we looked off upon It
from the land, but, with a few cau-
tious strokes, we discovered the
smudge which represented Tuttle's
whaleboat, and drew up within an
oar's length of where he lay waiting.

Rural Free Delivery Has Proved ol
Too Great Service to Be Inter-
In Postmaster General Hitchcock's
discussion of how to overcame the
great deficit in his department there
was no suggestion that the rural free
delivery system should be interfered
with. It has been spoken of as one
of the costliest luxuries in the whole
service, but it is a luxury which has
become a necessity In thousands oi
country homes and could not well be
dispensed with. It is only some ten
years ago that the service was started
by August Machen as an experiment.
The first appropriation was $50,000.
Next year the service will cost the
country about $35,000,000, and the
statement is made that it will mean a
loss of $30,000,000.
But, even so, the rural free delivery
has come to stay. As a member of
congress was quoted as saying the
other day: "We cannot take a back
ward step by stopping the custom."
The farmers and others living miles
away from villages and post offices
have become accustomed to having
their daily newspapers and their
monthly magazines delivered at their
doors. They would not consent to
go back to the old days. That service
has done wonders in relieving the mo-
notony which marked the lives of
those who live in the back country
ways. It has brought the world to
their doors. It has opened the way
for them to be a part of the world as
nothing else has done. It has light-
ened their load of seclusion immeas-
urably. What the rural free delivery
has cost the country in dollars it
has more than made up in other

The scene became oppressive in its
barrenness, and I felt the need of
movement to overcome its weakening
effect upon the nerves. This was to
be a night of action, not of dreams, so
I groped my uncertain path back
along the littered wharf and around
the curve of the shore line, beneath
the gloomy shadows of coal sheds. Of
lights there were comparatively none.

Uniform Pure Food Laws.
One of the important conferences
of the year is the pure food confer-

Taft. At present there is no uniform-
ity in legislation upon this most vital
matter. Eventually there must be

all that relates to public health and
hygiene. The movement for the adop-
tion of similar statutes among the
states would prove, If successful, to be
the forerunner of wide legislative co-
The Idaho's Mishap.
It may not be that the navy of the
United States has more frequent acci-
dents than that of any other country,
but the recurrence of them Is never-
theless disquieting. It is always pos-
sible to offer explanations after the
fact, but it would seem as though
contingencies might be better ap-
praised in advance. The Idaho ran
aground after being beaten by heavy
Ice, so as to keep its course with dif-
ficulty. The absence of the Godse
Neck bar light, which was carried
away by the ice pack, is held re-
sponsible for the mishap.
The Idaho was on Its way down
the Delaware river for Sandy Hook
to join the ships of the Atlantic fleet
and help them out of the Ice that
holds them, when it ran aground at
Bullhead Shoals. It may have been
all right to have the vast fighting ma-
chine steaming the treacherous Dela-
ware in an almost unprecedented fog
rather than safely at anchor, but the
nature of its assignment, does not im-
press the layman as of a consequence
to justify any chances.
The shoal is a well-known one. It
is, in fact, where the Prairie ground-
ed. The accident is not of a serious
nature, but it is impossible to say
what shock a mud-bound and ice-bat-
tered battleship with its delicate
mechanism may suffer. Had the oc-
currence come during a hurricane,
the consequences might have been of
the gravest nature. It is to be hoped
that the rules under which the great
battleships are commanded are
ample in provisions against needless
risks. It is also to be trusted that
the process of rapid promotion does
not place officers in responsible com-
mands too young to employ the kind
of wisdom necessary to direct the op-
erations of the country's intricately
constructed ships of war.
Didn't Seem Particularly Appropriate,
But Later Events Justified
! The story of the minister who held
a religious meeting in a penitentiary
and aroused the ire of the Inmates
by announcing as a hymn that one
beginning "The dying thief rejoiced
to see" is equaled by the talc of a
local preacher whose church got in
debt not long ago. A congregational
meeting was held for the purpose of
, extricating it, and the chairman of
the board of deacons, or whatever the
financial body was, got up and stated
the situation, and ended by calling
for a special collection to make up

though he may never go back to en-
joy the privileges of hi* office." No
one will object to his being "presi-

Nicaragua. Secretary Knox declared
that it was the purpose of this gov-
ernment to hold Zelaya personally re-
sponsible for any wrongs Inflicted on
American citizens. This could not
be put into effect because Mexico of-
