Loitering on the San Francisco water front, John Ralney. newspaper reporter, is accosted by a blind man, a slant in size, who asks Kainey to lead him to the sealing schooner Karluk. The blind man tells Rainey he is n old shipmate of Captain Simms of the Karluk and desires to make his visit a eurprlse. He asks Rainey to lead him aboard, and Rainey does so. In the cabin they find Captain Simms and a man named Carlsen. Simms recognizes the fcllnd man, calling him Jim Lund. Lund accuses Simms of abandoning him, blind on an Ice floe, and denounces him for what he calls his ingratitude. Simms anlea the charge, but Lund refuses to to pacified. He declares his intention of accompanying the Karluk on its expedition north, where it is going in quest of a gold field which Lund has discovered. Peggy, Simms daughter, is aboard, and defends her father. Carlsen, who Is a physician, drugs Rainey. CHAPTER II. Awaking from his stupor, Rainey finds himself at sea. Carlsen Informs him he has been kidnaped because, having learned the object of the expedition, he might have divulged it and frustrated the plans of the voyagers. He offers Rainey a share of the gold, and Rainey, seeing nothing else to be done, declares himself satisfied. Lund gives him a brief account of a former expedition of the Karluk, tells him he distrusts Carlsen, and suggests a "partnership," Halney to act as Lund's "eyes." knowledge of seamanship, is made second mate of the vessel.

Lund Is of opinion that Carlsen is keeping the captain ill and Is playing to secure the gold, and Incidentally Peggy, for himself. Tamada. Ttdently a Japanese of education and far above the position of cook on such a vessel as the Karluk, is an unknown nuantity. CHAPTER VI. An interview Rainey .has with Tamada does not throw much light on the position of the Jap, though Rainey Is inclined to believe he has no sinister intentions and would prefer to side with Lund and Rainey rather than with Carlsen and the hunters. Lund is doubtful, but tells Rainey he has a trump eard in his possession which will enable him to frustrate any sinister plans which Carlsen may have made. They sight land aad arrangements are made for a conference to decide on the sharing of the gold. Carlsen, knowing that Lund would insist on Rainey's being present In an advisory capacity to the blind man. Invites Rainey to attend. V CHAPTER Vll.- -It is arranged that Rainey is to see the skipper, who Carl-ae- n declares is in no condition to join the gathering. Rainey finds the captain seemingly at the point of death Peggy confides to him that she dlstr sts Carlsen and fears he is actually slowly killing her father The conference begins with a general feeling of tenseness. Carlsen makes the assertion that all on board, with the exception of Tamada and the boy Sandy, being equal, they should share alike Lund denies the equality, and as the discoverer of the gold demands the chief share. After a bitter quarrel Lund throws off his glasses, announcing the recoverv of his sight. Carlsen draws his reiolver, but Lund also has a revolver and shoots first. Carlsen ar Lund's face turned dark with a burst of rage that exploded in voice and action. "You think I need my gun, do ye, you pack of rats? Then try it on without it."

"Keep movin' ! Don't let 'em crowd you!" Then the fight was joined. The girl leaned out from the promontory to watch the tourney. Tamada, impassive as ever, tended his fires. Sandy crept down to the beach, drawn despite ids will, and shuffled In and out, Irresolute,' too weak to attempt to mis in, but excited, eager to help.

Investigating the condition of the skipper, they find Carlsen has been administering morphine. The supply on board being exhausted, they are unable to do anything, and the captain dies. Lund offers to take the girl back to Unalaska, but she decides to go on. , CHAPTER IX. The hunters attack Lund, who has taken full charge of the ship, and in a fierce fight, in which Rainey participates, the attackers are worsted. The girl watches the fight and Rainey discovers she has a revolver. CHAPTER X. Lund and Rainey search Carlsen's cabin for shells, find a quantity, and Lund has Rainey throw them overboard in the presence of the hunters. Is Rainey love It Is plain to and he that Lund theingirl's fears for with Peggy Bafety. They sight the Island which is their destination, and approach it safely. The two dropped from Lund's relaxed arms like sacks, and lie stepped over them, alert, po'sed on the balls of his feet, letting out a shout of triumph, while he looked about him for his next adversary. The bedrock on which they fought was slippery where Ice had formed in Two seamen tackled the crevices. Hansen. He stopped the curses of one with a straight punch to his mouth, but the man clung to his arm, bearing it down. Hansen swung at the other, and the blow went over the shoulder as he dodged, but Hansen got him in chancery, and the three, staggering, swearing, sliding, went down at last together, with Hansen underneath, twisting one's neck to shut off his wind while he warded off the wild blows of the second. With a wild heave he got on all fours, and then Lund, roaring like a bull as lie came, tore off a seaman and flung him headlong. "Pound him, Hansen!" he shouted, his eyes hard with purpose, shining s like ice that reflects the sun, his wide, glorying in the fight. The Finn had got himself together a bit, wiping the gouts of blood from his face and spitting out the snags of his broken teeth. He drew a knife from inside his shirt, a long, curving blade, and sidled, like a crab, toward Lund, murder in his piggy, bloodshot eyes, waiting for a chance to slip in and stab Lund in the back, calling to a comrade to help him. "Come on," he called, "Olsen, wit' yore knife. Gut the swine!" Another blade flashed out, and the pair advanced, crouching, knees and bodies bent Lund backed away warily toward the opposite cliff, looking for loose rock fragment He had forbidden knives to the sailors since the mutiny, and had forced a delivery, but these two had been hidden. A knife to the Finn was a natural accessory. Only his drunken frenzy had made him try to beat Lund at his own game. One of the two hunters, lamed with a kick on the knee, howling with the pain, clinched savagely and bore the seaman down, battering his head against a knob of rock. The other friendly hunter had bashed and buffeted his opponent to submission. But Rainey was In hard case. A seaman, half Mexican, flew at him like a wildcat. Rainey struck out, and his fists hit at the top of the breed's head without stopping him. Then he clinched. The Mexican was slippery as an eel. He got his arms free, his hands shot up, and his thumbs sought the inner corners of Rainey's eyes. The sudden, burning anguish was maddening and he drove hie clasped fists upward, wedging away the drilling fingers. Two hands clawed at his shoulders from behind. Someone sprang fairly on his back. A knee thrust against his spine. The agony left him helpless, the vertebrae seemed about to crack. Strength and will were shut o:T. and the world went black. And then one of the hunters catapulted into the struggle, and the four of them went down in a maddened frenzy of blows and stifled shouts. The sailors fought like beasts, striving for blows barred by all codes of decency and fair play, intent to maim. Lund had got his shoulders against the rocks and stood with open hands, watching the two with their knives, who crept in, foot by foot, to make a finish. Peggy Simms, a strand of her pale yellow hair whipped loose, flung it out of her eyes as she stood on the edge of the cliff, her lips apart, her breasts rising stormily, watching; her features changing with the tide of battle as it surged beneath her, punctuated with muffled shouts and oaths. She saw Lund at bay, and snatched out her pistol. But the distance was too great. She dared not trust her aim. Sandy, dancing in and out, willing but helpless, bound by fear and lack of muscle, saw Demlng, followed by Beale, stealing up the trail, unnoticed by the girl, who. leaned far forward, watching the fight, her eyes on Lund and the two creeping closer with their knives, cautious hut determined. Tamada stood farther back and could not see them. The lad's wits, sharpened by his forecastle experience, surmised what Demlng were after as they gained the promontory flat and ran toward the fires. "Hey!" he shrilled. "Look out; nos-.rilwind-clippe- d and-Beal- but she leaped aside, dodged the oth-e- friendly manner. "You're a white man, Tamada," he said. "You, too, Sandy. I'll not forget it. Rainey, round up these derelicts an' help Tamada fix 'em up. I'll settle with 'em later. Hansen, put the rest of 'em to work, an' keep 'em to it! Do you hear? They got to do the work of the whole bunch." Lund turned to the two hunters who had stood apart. "Wal, you yellow-bellie- d neutrals," he said, his voice cold and his eyes hard. "Thought I might lose, and hoped so, didn't you? Pick up that skunk Beale an tote him aboard. Then come back an' go to work.

The great curtain of fog was a mile ahead. The last shell had fallen two hundred yards short. Five minutes more would settle it. Hansen had the wheel. Lund stood by the taffrnll, his arm about Peggy Simms. He shook a fist at the gunboat, vomiting black smoke from her funnel, foam about her bows. "We'll beat 'em yet," he cried. The next shell, with more elevation, whined parallel with them, sped ahead, and smashed Into the waves. "Hold yore course, Hansen! No time to zigzag. Got to chance it. D n It. they know hw to shoot!" A missile had gone plump through main and foresails, leaving round holes to mark the score. Another fairly struck the main topmast, and some splinters came rattling down, while flapped the remnants of the top-saamid writhing ends of halyard and heet. They entered the beginning of the fos, curllnir wisps of it reached out, twining over the bowsprint and head-sailenveloping the foremast swallowing the schooner as a hurtling shell crashed into the stern. The next instant the mist had sheltered them. Lund released the girl and jumped to the wheel. "Now then," he shouted, "we'll fool 'em!" He gripped the spokes, and the men ran to the sheets at command while the Karluk shot off at right angles to her previous course, skirting the fog that blanketed the wind but yet allowed sufficient breeze to filter through to give them headway, gliding like a ghost on the new tack to the east. Rainey, tense from the explosion of the shell, jumped below at last and came back exultant. "It was a dud. Lund!" he shouted. "Or else they didn't want to blow us up on account of the gold. But they've wrecked the cabin. The fog's coming in through the hole they made. Tama-da'- s galley's gone. It's raked the schooner!" "So long's it's above the water line, to h 11 with It!

We left the camp ground about an hour later than the time announced for the funeral but we were told we would be in time for they were usually an hour later than the appointed much. hour. We went in the Mission Truck and as we approached the church we saw the funeral procession arriving. It was a sight strange to behold. First came the hearse (if such it could be called) for it was nothing more than a box like wagon with two mules pull- was called, and proceeded to take seats promiscuously over the church. There was no order or system in the whole proceedings, still there was not much noise except an occasional burst of grief from the members of the bereaved family who sat on two rough benches, one' on one side of the coffin facing the audi ence, the other on the opposite side facing the pulpit, if it could be given the dignity of 3uch a name. It was only a rough piece of workmanship which held a large Bible. The Church was very rudely built. Long rough benches took the place of our comfortable pews. No carpet of any kind upon the floor; indeed n many of the homes in that hardly knew what carpets or rug3 were. Most of the men and women were dressed in their everyday working clothes. Even the father of the deceased child had on just a torn blue shirt and overalls. Most of the women had on large sunbonnets. No one seemed to be in charge of the arrangements, until the minister came, He was an elderly man with a gray beard. He seemed to be of a better class than his congregation. He seemed very much pleased to see us present. He asked the brethren immediately to come in front with him as he was alone and then he asked the rest of us young people to come and sing several hymns. We always carried song books with us so we were prepared and sang, "No Disappointment in Heaven," and "Asleep in Jesus," for them The people looked at us with wonder and awe upon their faces for it seemed they had never heard such singing. I doubt if they would have had any singing whatever if we would not have been there. Imagine a funeral without singing. The minister asked one of the brethren to lead in opening scripture reading and prayer after which he again asked us to sing. The minister then preached a very good sermon. He seemed to have a real experience of in his heart and he preached to the living instead of about the dead as so mapy preachers do today. We enjoyed it very ser-tios?l-vation After the sermon several men came up and took off the coffin lid so any who cared to view the remains could do so. I forgot to mention that the only flowers which they had were a small iatjC S3se went by "Rainey as If he had wicfixsristed, straight into Lund's arms, TS&m. r2actradiaitt, upturned.

Among the poorer classes in Kentucky they have no undertaker and of course the body is not embalmed. The child had died two days before and in such warm weather it did not take long for the body to decompose. After the lid was taken off the odor which arose was enough to make us wish we were out of the church. We could hardly sing. Immediately after the lid was removed it seemed the entire body of people in the church arose and began to crowd around the corpse. We did not know what it meant for we had never seen the like before but there waB no one there to see that things were done in an orderly way and they were too ignorant themselves to know any Pi 1 .1 risxi"Sr concern of her struck Rainey quick.

The coffin in which was lying the little seven year old boy, was in the center on the floor and completely encircling it was the family seated on chairs. Following this wagon came two or three more wagons with the near relatives and friends Behind also seated on chairs. the wagons came quite a few of the friends and neighbors on horse back and some walking. Our mission truck was as much a curiosity to them as they in their strange way of traveling were to us. Many of these people in the south among che mountains never rode in ,an automobile, others never even saw one for some of the roads are impassable with a machine. The people slowly entered the little Bear Wallow church, as it The minister asked us to sing while the congregation viewed the corpse, but such an outburst of grief followed the gathering about the coffin that our voices could scarcely be heard. The southern people are very emotional and sympathe ic, and it seemed each tried to outdo the other in their manifestations of seeming sorrow and sympathy. You cannot imagine the confusion and noise there was for fifteen or twenty minutes. It seemed over half of the congregation was crying and sobbing aloud. I am sure the noisp could have been heard quite a distance. I do not know how long it would have lasted but the minister told several men to replace the coffin lid. and take the coffin to the grave, but this was easier said than done for several women whom I took to be the mother and sisters seemed unreaFonable in their heat trending grief. They pushed the lid away and clung to the edg of the coffin to so that the men were forced to take them away. They immediately took the coffin out to the graveyard where they were just finishing digging the grave. My heart ached to see the grief of these ignorant people who had no hope in Jesus Christ. They had no comforting thought of ever seeing their loved one again. Prayer was offered and we sang another song at the grave then we came away. The family and friends were still crying and sobbing at the grave. I do not know how long they remained there after we left. We spoke a few words with the minister before leaving and he seemed to appreciate it so much that we came and helped wite the service. He said he knew how it would be and he did not know how he would have gotten them to stop in their out burst of grief if we would not hive been there to sing. And so having witnessed the strangest funeral we ever expect to see we went away more determined than ever to bring the good news of salvation and hope to these poor souls living in ignorance and darkness.

In an address before the Worn- -, an's Club of Paducah, Joseph P. Byers, Commissioner of Institutions for Kentucky, stated that an increase in the staff at the Western State Hospital will permit Dr. Wallace Durham, the Superintendent, and Dr. Edward Davis, his Assistant, both of whom are trained phychiatrists. to hold consultations and clinics in conjunctions with individual ohysicians and medical associations of the counties of the western district, in order that they may examine, diagnose and prescribe treatment for the cases of persons showing evidence of nervous or mental derangement, and exercise a more thorough su? pervision of patients who have been dismissed as cured from the hospital. , !

From the viewpoint of the State, Mr Byers pointed out, leaving out of account the bene- fit of maintaining its institutions according to the most advanced standards set by scientific investigation, research and experiment, the advantage is one that can be measured by dollars and cents; with the greatly overcrowded conditions at most of the institutions as the basis for an estimate even a casual observer would calculate the saving in thousands of dollars.

The highest price of the season at Saratoga was $21,000- for the brother to The Porter. Several others were sold for more than $10,000 each and a number of likely looking colts and fillies brought from $5,000 to $7,000 each. The market generally was steady and unspotted, which is to eay it was stable. The prices were based on the probable eardng power of these colts anU fillies, and if organizations like the Kentucky Jockey Club did not l offer generous stakes and purees, it would not be p market their callings advantageously. Neither would it have been possible for S. C.

Washington, Nov. 29. A resolution declaring for relinquishment of foreign postoffice privileges in China was adopted by the nine powers sitting as a committee on Pacific and Far Eastern questions. The date of Jan. 1, 1923, was set for the abandonment of foreign postofiices, and this was agreed to by all the powers represented except Japan, whose representatives asked for time to hear from their government. The Japanese delegates, it was said, did not object to Jan. 1, 1923, as the date for abandoning their postofiices, but felt that they did have the authority to agree to that date without referring the matter to nt Tokyo. Washington, Nov. 29. American I it r the turf. Fifteen years ago it was no uuconimon thing in Kentucky for turfmen to run their horses for S40O purses. This year the Kentucky .Tbckey Club distributed in stakes and purses an iverage of $12,000 a day to the turfmen; no purse at Churchill Downs or Latonia was under $1,300, and many of them In 1905 the Kentucky Derby was worth reaching $1,400 and $1,500 each. $4,850 Since the existence of the Kentucky Jockey Club, which was organized three years iigo, the Kentucky Derby was worth in 1919 over $20,000; In 1120 over $30,000, and in 1021 the Kentucky Jockey Club added $50,000 All the other siakes on the roster of the Kentucky to the royal stake. Jockey Club at Lexington, Churchill Downs and Latonia have been proportionately increased. In the thrse years of its existence the Kentucky Jockey Club has distributed to the turfmen $3,479,665, the greater part of which sum was paid to citizens of Kentucky who own and breed race horses. Since the Kentucky Legislature in 1!K5 created the State Racing we have had cleaner and better lacing than eer before, and since the organization of the Kentucky Jockey Club we have had an era of prosperity for breeder.-- and turfmen unequalled in the turf history of this State.

Eleven foot ball players were killed during the season, most of them belonging to High Schools. The concessions for the oil rights of Persia have been awarded to the Standard Oil Co. for fifty years. v Rev. naval experts presented to the Japanese and British officers detailed answers to questions presented last week as to the American naval program. The full membership of the technical commission of the arms conference was not in session. The extensive examination of figures of all three powers as to existing naval strength of each country has not resulted In any change of the original figures in Secretary Hughes' proposal. It was said authoritatively that no mistakes in calculation had been revealed during the discussion by the experts. The data admitted by the American group had to do, it was understood, with questions asked by the Japanese as to the euct meaning of certain paragraphs of the American reduction plan. The specific nature of the points Involved was not revealed. No Reason to Change. It is known, however, that the American experts feel they have been able to show that there exists no reason to change any of the tonnage estimates for the three powers upon which the American plan was based and it is assumed that during the week, possibly in a matter of hours, the naval reduction problem will be formally returned to the conference for action. Assurances that the American calculations as to existing Japanese naval strength has been found to be accurate in the American view, lends additional weight to the repeated declaration that the American delegates will ratio prostand firmly for the posed for limitation of naval construcholiday tion at the end of the period. It also would Indicate the improbability that the American delegates would agree to retention bj Japan of the battleship Mutsu, although no definite statement in this regard lias been made by any member of the delegation. Formal disposition of the questions extraterritoriality of and postal rights in China, through specific declarations prepared by subcommittees was the business of the conference on convening for another committee session. These declaration will express the agreed attitude of the conference that the system of foreign judicial courts and also the foreign post offices maintained within China, shall be withdrawn as speedily as conditions warrant. The virtual decision of the conference to send a commission of international jurists to investigate the efficiency of the Chinese courts was to be embodied in the declaration relating to that subject Approve Harding Plan.
