Hurrying down tho short flight of

into tho night and went in search of

whoro it had fallon ; nud, picking it
up carefully, returned to tho lantern

ordinary spocics. She, examined its
pltimago moro cloioly, and was
astonished to tin I a plcco of thin
paper llrmly sccurod to ouo of the tail

Relieving tho feathered mossongcr
of its burden, Kstcllo opened tho mis

a mango tree.
She loosened the painter, grasped
the oars, and pushed out into Iho bay.
As the courageous girl rounded the

The commander took the mesagp
and hurried with it to his cabin, where
lie remained but a moment, then reap
peared nnd issued several orders to
his men in quick Mie :cssion.
Turning to l-Nlelln he grasped her

BIRDS OF THE SKA.

In Prolonged Gales Thousands

The heavy storms of the sea trouble
not the ships which sail upon its

ened by the furious anger oil old Nep

southern states, the frocks of sea fow l
denote the approaching storm by wild

mingle with tlio roar of the surf, nud
