Tapt. Nathaniel Plum, nf the sloop

VtrunKhnlri of tin; Mormons. !!<■ Is ainl-
flenly confronted by Otnidlnh Price, an
fcccentric old man and a member of the
Mormon council, who tells l.iin that he Is
expected. I'rlce Ignores Nat's protesta-
tions that he lias KOt the wronK man, and
bargains for the ammunition aboard the
kloop. He binds Nat by a solemn oath to
flellver a package to Franklin Pierce,
president of the United States. Near
Price's cabin Nat sees the frightened face
of a young woman who disappears In the
darkness, leaving an odor of lilacs. It
develops that Plum's visit to the IslanTl
Is to demand settlement from the kin«,
Htrang, for the looting of his ship some
time previously, supposedly by Mormons,
Casey, the mate, has been left In charge
of the sloop with orders to bombard St.
James If Nat does not return within a
certain time. Price takes Nat In the
darkness, to the king's home, and
through a window he sees the king and
his wives, among whom Is the lady of
the lilacs, whom Price says is the sev-
enth wife. Plum calls at the king's of-
fice, where he Is warned by a young
woman that Ills life is in danger. Strang
receives Plum cordially, professes Indig-
nation when he hears the captain's griev-
ance, and promises to punish the guilty.
Plum again receives warning of his dan-
ger. He rescues Neil, who Is being pub-
uely whipped. The king orders Arbor
Croclie, the sheriff and father of Wlnn-
some, the girl who warned Nat. to pul'-
#110 and kill the two men. Plum and Neil
plan to escape on the Typhoon. Plum
learns that Marlon, the girl of the lilacs.
Is Nell's sister. She Is not yet married
to Strang. Plum suggests carrying lier
ot[ on the ship. Nell approves.
; CHAPTER VI—Continued.
Horror, not fear, Sent an Involun-
tary shiver through Nathaniel.
"They can't reach us!" assured Nell.
There was the glitter of triumph In
his eyes. "This was to have been my
,way of escape after 1 killed Strang.
A quarter of a mile deeper in the
swamp I have a canoe." He picked
up the gun and box and began forcing
fcls way through the dense alder along
the edge of the stream. "I'd like to
stay and murder those dogs," he called
back, "but it wouldn't be policy.'
For a time the crashing of their
bodies through the dense growth of
the swamp drowned all other sound.
Five minutes later Neil stopped on the
edge of a wide bog. The hounds were
giving fierce tongue in the forest on
their left and their nearness sent
(Nathaniel's hand to his pistol. Neil
•aw the movement and laughed.
"Don't like the sound, eh?" he said.
"We get used to it on Beaver islaud.
They're just about at the place where
they tore little Jim Schredder to
ipleces a few weeks back. Schredder
Itried to kill one of the elders for steal-
ing his wife while he was away on a
might's fishing trip."
He plunged to his knees in the bog.
"They caught him just before he
reached the swamp," he flung back
over his shoulder. "Two minutes
juore and he would have been safe."
Nathaniel, sinking to his knees In
the mire, forged up beside him.
"Lord!" he exclaimed, as a breath
of air brought a sudden burst of blood-
curdling cries to them. "If they'd
loosed them on us sooner—"
He shivered at the terrible grimace
Neil turned on him.
"Had they slipped the leashes when
we escaped, we would have been with
poor Schredder now, Captain Plum.
By the way"—he stopped a moment
to wipe the water and mud from his
face—" three days after they covered
Schredder's bones with muck out
there, the elder took Schredder's wife!
She was too pretty for a fisherman."
He started on, but halted suddenly
with uplifted hand. No longer could
they hear the baying of the dogs.
"They've struck the creek!" said
After an Interval of silence there
came a long mournful howl.
"Treed—treed or in the water, that's
what the howling means. How Croche
and his devils are howling now!"
A curse was mingled with Neil's
breath as he forced his way through
the bog. Twenty rods farther on they
came to a slime covered bit of water
on which was floating a dugout ca-
noe. Immense relief replaced the
anxiety in Nathaniel's face as he
climbed into It. At that moment he
was willing to fight a hundred men
for Marion'st sake, but sr.akes and bogs
and bloodhounds were entirely outside
his pale of argument and he exhibited
no hesitation in betraying this fact to
his companion. For a quarter of a
mile Nell forced the dugout through
water viscid with slime and rotted
substance before the clearer channel
of the creek was reached. As they
progressed the stream constantly be-
came deeper and more navigable until
it finally began to show signs of a cur-
rent and a little later, under the pow-
erful impetus of Neil's paddle, the ca-
noe shot from between the dense
Bhores into the open lake. A mile
away Nathaniel discerned the point of
forest beyond which the Typhoon was
hidden. He pointed out the location
of the ship to his companion.
"You are sure there Is a small boat
waiting for you oh the point?" asked
"Yes, since early morning."
Nell was absorbed In thought for
some time as he drove the canoe
through the tall rice grass that grew
thick along the edge of the shore.
"How would It be if I landed you
on the point and met you tonight at
Obadiah's?" he asked suddenly. "It
is probable that after we get Marion
aboard your ship 1 will not return to
the Island again, and It Is quite neces-
sary that I run down the coast for a
couple of miles—for—" He did not
finish his reason, but added: "I can
make the whole distance In this rice
so there is no danger of being seen.
Or you might lie off the point yonder
and 1 would join you early this eve-
"That would be a better plan If we
must separate," Baid Nathaniel, whose
voice betrayed the reluctance with
which he assented to the project. He
had guessed shrewdly at Neil's mo-
, tivw "la It possible that we ma* have
another young lady passenger?" he ' every step adding to his anxiety Na
asked banteringly. 1 tbanlel hurried along the narrow rim

Nathaniel laughed softly.
"Tomorrow she will be making love,
Neil, and before you know it she will
be married and have a family of her
own. 1 tell you she Is a woman—and
If you are not a fool you will take her
away with Marion."
With a powerful stroke of his pad-
dle Nell brought the canoe In to the
"Th^re!" he whispered, "You have
only to cross this point to reach your
boat." He stretched out his long arm
and In the silence the two shook
hands. "If you should happen to
think of a way—that we might get
Wlnnsome—" he added, coloring.
The sudden grip of his companion's
fingers made him flinch.
"We must!" said Nathaniel.
He climbed ashore and watched Neil
until he had disappeared in the wild
rice. Then he turned into the woods.
He looked at his watch and saw that
it was only 2 o'clock. He was con-
scious of no fatigue; he was not con-
scious of hunger. To him the whole
world hatl suddenly opened with glo-
rious promise and in the still depths
of the forest he felt like singing out
his rejoicing. He had never stopped
to ask himself what might be the end
of this passion that had overwhelmed
him; he lived only in the present, in
the knowledge that Marion was not
a wife, and that it was he whom fate
had chosen for her deliverance. He
reasoned nothing beyond the sweet
eyes that had called upon him, that
had burned their gratitude, their hope
and their despair upon his soul; noth-
ing beyond the thought that she would
soon be free from the mysterious in-
fluence of the Mormon king and that
for days and nights after that Bhe
would be on the same ship with him.
He had emptied the pockets of the
coat he had given Nell and now he
brought forth the old letter which
Obadiah had rescued from the sands.
He read it over and over again as he
sat for a few moments in the cool of
the forest and there was no trouble
in his face now. It was from a girl.
He had known that girl, years ago, as i
passed and his still aching vision saw
no sign of sail; two hours—and the
sun was falling in a blinding glare
over the Wisconsin wilderness. At
last he sprang to his feet with a hope-
less cry and stood for a few moments
undecided. Should he wait until night
with the hope of attracting the atten-
tion of Neil and joining him in his
canoe or should he hasten in the di-
rection of St. James? In the darkness
he might miss Neil, unless he kept
up a constant shouting, which would
probably bring the Mormons down
upon him; if he went to St. James
there was a possibility of reaching
Casey. He still had faith in Obadiah
and he was sure that the old man
would help him to reach his ship; he
might even assist him in his scheme
of getting Marion from the Island.

Neil knew Wlnnsome; in years of j uiere
wandering he had almost forgotten
her—until this letter came. It had
brought many memories back to him
with shocking clearness. The old folk
were still in the little home under the
hill; they received his letters; they
received the money he sent them each
month—but they wanted him. The
girl wrote with merciless candor. He
had been away four years and it was
time for him to return. She told him
why. She wrote what they, in their
loving fear of inflicting pain, would
never have dared to say. At the end,
in a postscript, she had asked for his j

there was something unpleasant in
