"Monticello, ahoy;" Again the
girl's voice echoed eerily over the
"Ahoy!" came a faint answering
hail. "Be ashore in a minute."
It was not one, but many min
utes before a battered and unpaint
ed rowboat drew up alongside at
the oars a squat, thick bodied man
with a prognathous jaw, stiff and
busy black brows that grew into
a single line. His eyes were keen
and alert and openly studied the
"So you got one man at least,
"Yes," the girl said briskly. 'But
he's not from Leonardtown he's
from one of those oil boats.
"I'll sit aft," the girl called and
dropped into the stern, there to sit
staring ahead, her eyes bigger and
more sombre than ever.
It was when the deeply laden
rowboat was perhaps half way out
to the nearest of the ships that
Donald Colby received his first
shock. He was, with deep interest,
studying the web of rusted cables
securing the Monticello to the
shore when, high overhead, sounded
three sharp noises. Wap! Wap!
Wap! followed by a throat tearing
cry. bo redolent oi agony and
mortal fear was it that Colby felt
the hair on the back of his neck
lift as they had that time when a
trio of Paraguayan mestizos had
come leaping into his quarters pois
ing bloodied bayonets and very anx
ious to kill for the greater glory
of la Republica.
As though paralyzed, the oars
men paused in mid stroke and in
the ensuing breathless silence wa
ter dripping from his oar blades
made a pattering sound, loud out of
"What what was that?" he
"Three shots generally mean
that somebody's getting hurt,"
Colby observed with macabre calm.
"Oh, oh " the girl's bright lips
writhed, a hand flashed up to her
heart and she started violently.
"Hurry, Dutton' for God's sake
hurry! Maybe it s where was
Father when you came away?"
The oarsman made no reply, only
dug his stout ash blades deep into
the steaming surface while Colby,
snatching up an extra pair of oars,
quickly added his powerful strokes

With magic suddenness a tower

The extension worker makes the
following sugar-saving suggestions
to home-canners: If you pack your
fruit hot in its own juice, you will
need much less sugar than if you
pack the fruit cold, then cover it
with sugar-and-water syrup. Re
member, sugar is not needed in
canning to keep food from spoil-.
ing. But it does help the fruit to
hold color and flavor. By sweet
ening the fruit slightly, and then
heating it, you can draw out the
juice from the fruit itself in
many cases make it unnecessary to
can any added water.
For juicy fruits, usually it's
best to separate the riper fruits
from those less ripe. Then you can
crush the riper fruits, heat them,
ami extract juice from them. Pre
heat the less ripe fruit, which you
have set aside, in this juice. Add
sugar to sweeten slightly if neces

there is plenty of juice to cover

Certain varieties of peaches an

from these fruits if you slice them
