Wiiigs # The Morning By LOUIS TRACY Copyright, 1KB. by Edward J. ; Clode Ifa ' CHAPTER XT. |HE drifting smoke was still so dense that not even the floor of the valley could be discerned.; Jenks dared not leave Iris at «uch a moment. He called to Mir Jan: \Take off your turban and hold it above your head if you think they can Me you from the warship.\ \It i» all right, sahib,\ came the cheering answer. \One boat is close Inshore. I think, from the uniforms, •hey are English sahibs, such as I iite seen at (Jarden Reach. The Dy ? ; •MB haye all gone/' Nevertheless ifenks waited. There was nothing to gain by being too pre- cipitate. A false step now might undo the achievementa of many weeks; .Mir Jan. was dancing about beneath; In a state of wild excitement. \They have seen the Dyaks running to their sampans, sahib,\ he yelled, •%nd the second boat is being pulled in; that direction! Yet another has just; tett the ship.\ A translation made iris excited, ea-: ger to go down and see these wonders. The boom of a cannon came from the sea. Instinctively the girl ducked for' safety, though her companion smiled at her fears, for the'shell would have long preceded the report had it trav- eled their way. \One of the remaining sampans has jot under way,\ he explained, \and the warship Is firing at her.\ \Ifoor wretches!\ murmured Iris. \Cannot the survivors be allowed to •scape?\ \•Vv^ell we are unable to Interfere; Those caught oh the island will proba- bly be taken to the mainland and hanged for their crimes, so the manner of their end is not of mtfcfa conse- quence.\ To the girl's manifest relief, there, was no more firing, imd Mir Jan an- nounced that a number of sailors were actually on shore. Then her thoughts turned to a matter of concern t° the. feminine mind even in the gravest mo-: ments of existence. She laved her face with water and sought her discarded •klrt Soon the steady tramp of boot clad feci advancing; at the double was heard: on the shingle, and an officer's .voice,, speaking the crude Hindoostanee 'if~*fee engine room and forecastle, shouted to Mir Jan: \Hi you black feilow! Are - there any white people here?\ Jenks sang, out: .\Xes. two of us! Perched on the rock over your heads. We are coming down.\ He cast loose the rope ladder. Iris; was limp and trembling. « . \Steady sweetheart,*' he whispered. \Don't forget the slip between the cup and the lip. Hold tight, but have ho fear; I will he just beneath.\ It was well he took this -precaution. -She was now so unnerved that an un- guarded movement might have led to: an accident. But the knowledge Ithat her lover was near, the touch of his hand guiding .her feet oh to the rungs of the ladder, iMistained her. They had almost reached the level when a loud exclamation and the crash of a hea'vy blow caused Jenks to halt and look downward. . A Dyak, lying at the foot of one of the scaling ladders and severely wound- ed by a shell splinter, witnessed their descent. In his left band he grasped a parang; his right arm was bandaged, ^ftibtigh .unable to rise, the vengeful pirate mustered his remaining strength to crawl toward the swaying ladder. It was Taung S'Ali, inspired with the hate and venom of the dying snake. Even yet he hoped to deal a mortal stroke at the man who had defied him and ail his cutthroat band. He might have succeeded, as Jenks was so taken up With Iris, were it not for the wateh- f ul eyes of Mir Jan. The Mohammedan sprang at him, with an bath, and gave Aim such a murderous whack with the butt of a rifle that the Dyak chief col- lapsed and breathed out his fierce spirit In a groan. At the first glance Jenks did not rec^ •pgnl^elCatiiig S'All owing toj his change of costumje. Through the thinner smoke he could See several saifors running up* .-Stat, with the passing of the chief, Jtheirlast peril had gone; The. next in* atant they were standing on the firm ground, and a British naval lieutenant, was saying-eagerly:, **We seem to have turned up in the nick of time. Do you, - py any chance, belong to the Sirdar?\ '*We ar«b the sole survivors,'' answer- edthe sailor: '»tou tw.o only?\ . j^Yea. She struck on.-the northwest reef of this island during a typhoon.

Then a 'detachment should go round the north side of the island and drive'the remaining; Dyaks into; the hands of the party you have landed, as I understand; at the farther end of the south beach. Mir Jan, the Moham- medan here, who has been a most faith; ful ally'during part of our siege, will. act as guide;\ - The other man cast a : comprehensive glance over the rock, with its scaling' ladders and dangling rope ladder, the cave, the little groups of dead or un- conscious pirates—for every wounded, man who\ could move a limb had crawled away after the first shell burst —and drew a deep breath. ''How long were you up there?\ he; asked, \Over thirty hour*.\. \It was a great fight!\ \$oMiewhat worse than it looks;\ said. Anst/tither. \This is Only the end of It; /Altogether we have accounted for nearly tw'Oseore of the poor devils.'' Robert looked toward the approach- ing boat. She would not land yet for a couple of minutes. '\By the way,\ he said, \will you tell me your name?\ I^Playdon -, Lieutenant Philip H. jpiaydoh.\ \Do you know to what natiotPthis island belongs?\ \.it\Is np nian's land; I think. It is marked 'uninhabited' on thejchart.\ •v \Then.\ said Aristwither,, \I call upon you. Lieutenant Playdon, and all others here present to witness 'that I, Robert Anstruther. late Of the Indian army, acting on behalf of myself and Miss* Iris Deane, declare that we have taken possession of this Island in the name of his Britannic majesty the king of England, that we are the joint .occu- piers and owners thereof and claim all property rights vested therein.\ These formal phrases, coming at such a moment, amazed his hearers. Iris alone had an Inkling of^the underlying -motive. \I don't suppose any one will dispute your title.\ said the naval officer grave- ly. He unquestionably imagined that sufferiug and exposure had sllghtly.dis- turbed the other man's senses. \Thank you.\ replied Robert with equal composure, though he felt in- clined to laugh at I'liiydon's mystifica- tion. \1 only wished to secure a suffi- cient number of witnesses for a verbal declaration. When I have a few min- utes to spare I will affix a legal notice on the wall in front of our cave.\ Playdon bowed- silently. There was something in the speaker's manner that puzzled him. He detailed a small guard to accompany Kobert and Iris, who now walked toward the beach, and asked Mir Jan to pilot him as suggest- \& by Anstruther. the boat was yet-many yards from shore when Iris ran forward and stretched out her arms to the man who -neither of \i. ... »• 'could lie the (laughter whoni lie soiiglit. He bowed; hfs head in humble resignation, and he thought he was the victim of n cruel hallucina- tion wl-cn Iris' tremulous accents reached his cars: ' Father, 'father;-!' Don't you know Jhe?\* '•''.' He stood iip. amazed and trembling. \Yes father, dpiir. It is -I. your own little girl given back to von.\ they had,«nme difficulty to keep him, IB the boat, and the man pulling strokt smashed a stout -oar with the next wrench. t And so they niet nt last, and the ••all ; ors left them alone to crowd rount Anstruther and ply hiiii with a hun dred questions. Although he fell in witl their humor and gradually pieced to gether the stirring story whichc was supplemented each; instant'by the ar rival of disconsolate tiyaks' and -th«, comments of the men who returnee from cave and beach, his soul was filled with the sight of Iris and her father and the happy, inconsequent demands \with which each sought to ascertait anxiety. Then Iris called to him: \Robert I want you.\ the use of his Christian name creat. ed something akin to a sensation; Sii: Arthur Deane was startled, even In bh immeasurable delight at finding liis- child uninjured, the picture of rudf health and happiness; Anstruther advanced. ', \This Is my fathe\ - -\ «he cr'edj shri\ with 'joy \And father darling, this of the morning. Afterward, you must was staring at her with wistful d> f bring Sir Arthur ashore again, and we spair, \Father! -Father!\ she cried. \Don't you know me?\ Sir Arthur Deane was looking at the two strange figures on the sands, and each moment his heart sank lower. This island held his final hope. During many weary weeks, since the day when a kindly admiral placed the cruiser Orient at his disposal, he had scoured the China sea. the coasts of Borneo and Java for some tidings of the ill fated Sirdar. to examine every sand- patch and tree covered shoal in the China sea Was an impossible task. All the Qttlent could do was to visit the principal is- lands and institute inquiries among, the fishermen and small traders. At last, the previous night a Malay-, tempted by hope of reward, boarded-the vessel When lying at anchor off the large is- land away to the south and told the captain a wondrous tale of 'a devil haunted place \inhabited .by two white spirit?; a male and a- female, whither a local pirate named, taung S'Aii had gone by fchanoe 1 with bis m*» and suf- fered great loss. J3ut Taung S'Ali was bewitched by thHemale spirit and had returned thej^^Bth a great force, swearing hJ^^^^Bher or perish. .The Spirits, thj^^^^^HL had dwelt upon the iRUtf^^^^^^Aerj^His andj^^^^^^^^^^H^^H||ce and fea^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Hver lindica- Eibouts liWy be ph not Jnybow, nonh- j}t tO Bfv fawn, ihe offl- vn tale, there is at took a an ago- l.jlooklng ors to the And so they met at lait. is Captain Robert Anstruther. t o whom alone, under God's will, 1 owe my llf<? many, many times since the moment; the Sirdar was lost.\ U was no time for questioning. Sir Arthur Deane took off his hat and held out his hand. \Captain Anstruther,\ he said, \as 1 owe you my daughter's life I owe yon that which I can never repay. And 1 owe you my own life, too, for 1 could not have survived the knowledge that she was dead.\ Robert took the proffered hand. \I think. Sir Arthur, that of the two\ I am the more deeply indebted. There are some privileges whose value can not be measured, and among them the privilege of restoring your daughter to your arms takes the highest place.\ Then he turned to Iris. \I think.\ he said, \that your father should take you on board the Orient, Iris. There .you may perhaps findi some suitable Clothing, eat something; and recover from the exciting events will guide him over the island. I am sure you will find much to tell him meanwhile.\ the baronet could not fall to note: the manner In which these two ad- dressed -each other, the: fearless love which leaped from eye to eye, the calm acceptance of a relationship not to be [questioned or gainsaid. Robert and Iris, without spoken word on the sub- ject* had tacitly agreed to avoid the slightest semblance of subterfuge as unworthy alike of their achievements and their love. \Your suggestion i s admirable.\ cried Sir Arthur. \The ship's stores may provide Iris vvith some sort of rigH»ut, and an old friend Of hers is on board at this moment, little expecting her pres? ence. Lord Venthor has accompanied me in my search. He will, of course, be deligbted\- Anstruther flushed a.deep bronze, but Iris broke In: \Father why did he come with \you?\ Sir Arthur, driven into this sudden* squall of explanation, became digni- fied. \Well you see; my dear^ under the circumstances he felt an anxiety al- most commensurate with my own.\ \But why, why?\ Iris was. quite calm. With Robert hear, she was courageous. Even the perturbed baronet experiertced a new sensation as his troubled glance fell be- fore her searching eyes. His daughter had left him a joyous, heedless girl. He found her a woman, strong; self re- liant, purposeful, Yet he kept on, choosing the most straightforward means as the only honorable way of clearing a course so beset with unsus* pected obstacles. \It is only reasonable; Iris, that your affianced husband should suffer an, ag- ony of apprehension on your account and do all that was possible to effect your rescue.\ I' ''JlyVafBancfear-hu'sbandi\ - \Well nay-dear girl, perhaps that is liflrdly th# correct phrase from your point of view.- Yet you cannot fail to that Mmember that Lflrd Yentnpr\- \Father. dear,\ said Iris, solemiiiv. but in a voice free from all uncertain-, ty, \my affianced husband stands here! We plighted our troth at the very gate\ Of death. It was ratified in the pres- ence of God and has been blessed by; him. I have made no compact with; LOrd Yentnor. He is a base and un- worthy map. Did you but know the truth concerning him yoii would not mention his name In the same breath with mme, Would he. Robert?\ \Be advised by me. Sir Arthur, and roo, too. Iris,\ be said, \This is no hour for explanations. Leave me to deal with Lord Yentnor. I am content to trust the Ultimate verdict to you. Sir Arthur. YOU will learn In due course, all that has happened. Go on board- Iris. Meet Lord Veutuor as you Would meet any other friend. You will not marry him. I know. I can trust you.\- \I am very much obliged to you.\ murmured the baronet; who, notwith- standing his worry, was far too experi- enced a man Of the world not to ac- knowledge the good sense, of this ad- vice, no matter bow ruffianly might be.; the guise of the strange person wb.i gave it, ' \that is settled, then.\ said Robert laughing good naturedly, for he well knew what a weird spectacle he must present | to the bewildered old getitle fl5an. Even Sir-Arthur Deane was fascinat; ed by the fagged and hairy g}attt whe carried himself so masterfully and helped everybody over the stile attht right moment; He tried to develop the change in the conversation. \By the. way,\ he said, \how came you. to be on the Sirdar? I have a list; of all the passengers and crew, and your name does not appear therein.\ \Oh that Is easily accounted for. I shipped as a steward in the name of Robert Jenks.\ \Robert Jenks! A steward!\ \Yes. that forms some part of the promised explanation,\ ••Ii'Is rapidly gathered the drift of her lover's wishes. \Come father,\ she cried merrily. \I am aching to see What the ship's stores. Which you arid Robert pin your faith to, can do for me fu the shape of garments, I have the utmost belief in the British navy, and even a skeptic should be convinced of its infallibility if H; M. S. Orient is able to provide a= lady's outfit.\ Sir Arthur Deane gladly availed him self of the proffered compromise. lie assisted Iris into the boat, though that active young person was far better able to support him, and a wOrd to the pffiegr i n command sont the gig flylns bac,k to the ship. Anstruther during u momentary delay made a small request on his own account. Lletftenant Play doh, nearly as'big, a man as Robert, dispatched* a note to his servant, and the gig speedily returned with a co™ plete assortment of clothing and linen The man also'brought a dressing case, with the result that a dip i 11 ^^\ 1111 and ten minutes in the hands^Hp ex pert valet made Anstruther a new man. Acting under his advice, the' bodies of the dead were thrown into the la- goon, the wounded were collected In the hut. to be attended to by the ship's surgeon, and thefTJrisoners were parad ed in front of Mir Jan. who identified every uiau and found by counting heads that none was missing. Robert did not forget to write out a formal notice and fasten it to the rock This proceeding further mystified the : officers of the Orient, who had grad'ual ly formed a couuerted Idea of the great fight made by the shipwrecked pair, though Anstruther squirmed inwardly when he thought of the manner in which Iris would picture the scene. As it was; be had the first Innings, and he did not fail to use the opportunity. In the few terse words which the mili- tant Britou best understands he de- scribed the girl's fortitude, her unflag- ging cheerfxiiuess; her uncomplaining readiness, to do and dare. When he ended, the first lieutenant, who commanded the boats sent in pur- suit of the flying Dyaks-the Orient sank both sampans as soon as they were launched—summed up the gener- al verdict: \You do not need our admiration. Captain Anstruther. Each man of us envies you from the bottom of his soul.\ \there Is-an error about my rank.\ he said. \I did dnee hold a commission in the Indian army, but I was court martiaied and cashiered in Hongkong six months ago. I was unjustly con- victed on a grave charge, and I hope some dayHo clear myself. Meanwhile I ant a -mere civilian. It was only Miss Deane's generous sympathy which led her to mention nay fornier rank, Mr< Playdpn.\ Had another of the Orient's twelve pounder shells suddenly burst in the midst of the group of officers it would hav'e created less dismay than this un- expected avowal. Court martiaied! Cashiered! None but a service man :an grasp the awful significance of those words to the commissioned ranks of the artny and navy. Ahstrdther well knew what he was doing. Somehow he found nothing hard In- the performance ofi these penances now. Of course the ugly truth must be revealed the moment Lord venthot heard his name. It was not fair to the good fellows crowding around hto and offering every attention that the frank hospitality of the British sailor could suggest to permit them to adopt the tone of friendly equality which rigid discipline if nothing else would not at low them to maintain. The first lieutenant by reason of his rank was compelled to say something. VThat is a»jdevilish bad job, Mt. An- struther;'' h\ blurted out. '%ell, you know I had.to tell you.\ ;.Sfce smiled unaffectedly at the fop>; dering circle.

Nor could they wholly understand his de^ meanor. There was a noble dignity in his candor, a conscious innocence that disdained to shield it se ' f under a par tlal truth. The first lieutenant again phrased the thoughts of his juniors. \I and every other man in the ship cannot help but sympathize with you. But Whatever-may be your record^-if yon were an escaped convict; M/r. An-; •truther^no one could withhold from ypu the praise deserved for your mag-; niflcent stand against overwhelming odds.

Mean- While we will gjve you every assistance and^,er—attentton in our power.\ A murmur of approbation ran through the little circle. Robert's face paled somewhat. What first rate chaps they were, to be sure! \I can only thank yqui\ he said un-: ateadily. \Your kindness is more try- ing than adversity.\ A rustle of silk, the intrusion into the Intent knot of hieh of a young lady in a Paris gown, a Paris hat; carrying a trouvjlle parasol and most exquisitely gloved and booted, tnide (every one gasp. \Oh Robert, deaf, how could you ? I actually didn't know you!\ , , Thus Iris, bewitchingly attired, was gazing now with provoking admiratjion at Robert, who certainly offered almost as great a contrast to his former state •as did the girl herself. He returned her look with interest. \Would any man believe,\ he laugh-: ed, \that clothes wduld do so much for a woman?\ \What a left handed compliment! But come, deafest. CaptaifeJFitzroy and Lord Ventnor have come®'ashore with fathef and me. They want us to show them everything! You, will ex- cuse him, won't you?\ she added, with a seraphic smile to the others. They walked off together. \Jimmy!\ gasped: a fat midshipman to a lanky youth. \She's got on youf togs!\ Meaning that Ifis had ransacked the: Orient's theatrical wardrobe and pounc- : ed on the swell outfit Of the principal: female impefsonator in the-ship's com- toanv.
