The Squarehead stationed himself at
the hittH with n lantern and Mr. Olbney
hastened to the pilot house and took
his place at the wheel. When the haw-
sers commenced to lift out of the sea,
The Squarehead gave h warning shout,
whereupon Mr. Olbney called the en-

commanded Scruggs. "Pull against

taut; slowly she was drawn seaward,
stern first, and at the expiration of
fifteen minutes' steady pulling, Mr. Olb-
ney could restrain himself no longer.
He rang for full speed astern- and got
it promptly. Then, calling Nells Hal

wheel and scrambled aft.
With no one at the wheel, the Mog-

closed behind him, Hicks and Flaherty
faced each other.

The crews of the Aphrodite and the
Bodega slept late, for they were
weary and, fortunately, no calls for
a tug came Into the office of the Red
Stack company all morning. About
ten o'clock I>an Hicks and Jack Fla-

they were two souls with but s single

Together they repaired to Jackson

luy the Maggie, rubbing her blistered
sides against the bulkhead. Captain
Scraggs was nowhere In sight, but Mr.
Olbney was at the winch, swinging
ashore the crates of vegetables which

men loaded Into the cargo net.

whispered. "Let's wait until she's un-

They retired without having at-
tracted the attention of Mr. Olbney.
Promptly at twelve o'clock the long-
shoremen knocked off work for the
lunch hour and Nells Ilalvorsen
drifted across the street to cool his
parched throat with steam beer.
While waiting for Scraggs to come up
out of the engine room, and take him
to luncheon, Mr. Olbney sauntered nfi
and was standing gazing reflectively
upon a spot on the Maggie's stern
where the hawsers had chafed away
the paint, when suddenli his fore-
bodings of evil returned to him a thou
sand fold stronger than they had been
since Scraggs' return to the little ship.
He glanced up and beheld gaz'ng
down upon him Captains Jack Fla-
herty and Daniel lllcks. Battle was
Imminent and the valiant Olbney
knew It; wherefore be determined In-
stantly to meet It like a man.
"Howdy, men." he saluted them.
"Olad to have you aboard the yacht,"
and he stepped backward to give him-
self lighting room.
'Scraggsy," He Bawled, "Scraggsy-y-y!
Help! Murderl It's Hicks and Fla-
herty! Bring an Axl"
nevertheless what they lacked In
horsepower they made up In pugnacity
—and the salt sea seldom breeds a
craven. Captain Scraggs thrust a
frightened face up through the engine-
room botch, but ot sight of the battle
royal taking place on the deck aft,
his blood turned to water and he
thought only of escape. To climb tip
to the bulkhead without being seen
was Impossible, however, so. not
knowing what else to do. he stood on
the Iron ladder and gazed, pop-eyed
with horror, at the unequal contest.
Backward and forward the tide of
battle surged. For nearly three min-
utes all Scraggs saw was an Indis-
tinct tangle of legs and ornis; then
suddenly the combotonts disengaged
themselves ond Scraggs beheld Mr.
Glbney prone upon the deck with o
gory face upturned to the foggy skies.
When he essayed to rise and continue
the contest, Flaherty kicked him In
the ribs and lllcks cursed him; so
Mr. Olbney, realizing that all was
over, beat the deck with his hand In
token of surrender. Hicks and Fla-
herty waited until the fallen gladia-
tor had recovered sufficient breath to
sit up; then they pounced upon him.
lifted him to the rail, and dropped him
overboard. Captain Scruggs shrieked
in protest at this added touch of bar-
barity. and Dan lllcks, turning, be-
held Scraggsy's white face at the
"You're next. Scraggs." be called
cheerfully, and turned to peer over the
rail. Mr. Glbney had emerged on the
surface and was swimming slowly
away toward an adjacent float where
small boats landed. He climbed
wearily up on the float and sat there,
gazing across at lllcks and Flaherty
without animus, for to his way of
thinking he had gotten off lightly, con-
sidering the enormity of bis offense.
The least be had anticipated w as three
months In hospital, and so grateful
was he to Hicks and Flaherty for
their forbearance that he strangled a
resolve to "lay" for lllcks and Fla
herty and thrash them Individually—
something he was fully able to do—
and t'orgot his aches and pains In a
lively Interest as to the fate of Cap-
tain Scraggs at the hands of the tow-
boat men. He was aware that Cap-
tain Scraggs bad failed Ignotnlnlously
to rally to the Glbney appeal to repel
boarders, and In his own expressive
terminology he hoped that what the
enemy would do to the dastard would
The enemy, meanwhile, hail turned
their attention upon Scraggs. who bad
dodged below like a frightened rabbit
and sought shelter In the shaft alley.
He hud sufficient presence of mind, as
be dashed through the engine room, to
snatch a large monkey wrench off the
tool rack on the wall, and. kneeling
Just Inside the alley entrance he
turned st bay and threatened the In-
vaders with his weapon. Thereupon
lllcks and Flaherty pelted him with
lumps of coal, but the sole result of
this assault was to force Scrags
further hack Into the shaf! alley ami
out of range.
The towhoHt men held s council of
war and decided to drown Scraggs out.
Dan Hicks run up on deck and re-
turned dragging the deck fire hose be-
hind him. H«* thrust the brass nozzle
Into Jhe shaft-alley entrance and In
vlted Scraggs to surrender uncondi-
tionally or he drown I'd like a kitten.
Scraggs, knowing his own fire hose,
defied them, so Dan lllcks started the
pump w*hile Flaherty turned on the
water. Instantly the hose burst up on
deck and Scraggs' Jeers of triumph
filled I be engine room. The enemy
was about to draw lots to see which
one of the two should cruwl Into the

and the Just cause for drastic action

alley. "Good old Mac. At-a-boy!"
"You're on, McOuffey. Nobody ever
had to beg me to fight him," Dan
Hicks replied cordially, and clltubed
to the deck. To his great surprise.
Mr. McOuffey winked nt him and drew
him off to the stern of the Maggie.
"There'll be no fight," he declared,
"although we'll thud around on deck

Mr. Glbney hnd returned to the
Maggie by tills time and he now took
his station nt the engine-room hatch
and growled ot Flaherty ond abused
him. "Keep tip your conroge.
Scraggsy." he called, as lllcks and Mc-
Ouffey pranced oround the deck In
simulated combat. "Mac's whalin' the
whey out o' Hicks an' Hicks couldn't
touch him with a buggy whip."
At the conclusion of the three min-
utes of horse-play, Mr. McOuffey came
to the botch ogaln. "Up with you.
Flaherty," he colled loud enough for
Captain Scraggs to hear, "up with you
before I go down ofter you "
Flaherty was about to possess him-
self of a hatchet when the face of his
confrere. Dan lllcks, appeared over
McGufTey's shoulder and grinned
kiM>wlngly at him. Immediately, Fla
herty hurled defiance at his enemies
and < nine up on deck, and once more
to Captain Scroggs came the dull
sounds of apparent conflict overhead.
Suddenly n cheer broke from Mr.
Olbney. "All off an' gone to Cooper-
town, Scraggsy." he shouted. "Come
up an' take a look at the fallen."
Out of the shaft alley came Scraggs
with a rush, tossing his wrench aside
the better to climb the ladder. He was
half way up when Mr. Gibney reached
down a great bond, grasped him by
ihe collar, ond whisked him out on
deck with a single Jerk. Here, to his
horror, lie found himself confronted
by a singularly scathless trio who
grinned triumphantly at him.
"Seeln' Is bellevin', Scraggs," Dan
lllcks informed him. "That's n lesson
you taught me an' Flaherty last night,
hut evidently you don't profit by ex
perlence. You're too miserable to

With ii quick twist. Mr. Gibney pre
sented Captain Scraggs for his pen-
ance; Flaherty and McOuffey followed
Dan lllcks promptly ami Captain
Scraggs screamed at every kick. And
now came Mr. Glbney's turn. "For

Scraggsy. on' bnttle lllcks on' Flo-

tossed him over to McOuffey to be
held In position for him.
"Don't, Gib. Please don't," Scraggs

Mr. Glbney paused, foot In midair;
surveyed the Moggie from stem to
stern, hesitated, licked his lower lip.
and glanced at the common enemy.
For an Instant It came Into his mind
to call upon the valiant and able Mc-
Ouffey to support him In a fierce coun-
ter attack upon Hicks and Flaherty.
! Only for an Instant, however;
his sense of fair play conquered
"No, Scraggsy," he replied sadly.
