Ting Wah, Chinese sailor, last man to die, tells Wallen he and five other Chinamen were sent aboard by "Drink-Hous- e Sam," notorious character of Singapore, to kill him. This recalls to Wallen an incident of his childhood which seems connected with the confession. While delirious, Wallen enters In the ship's log: the fact of his death and abandons the vessel in a small boat. Wallen's boat drifts to the island of Arm and a Scottish trader there, MacKnight, cares for him. Learning that a ship is in port on the other side of the Island, twenty miles away, Wallen, though Unfit for the task, starts to reach it, but falls exhausted on the trail.

''What do you know about my father?" he found himself speaking in a quiet voice. Captain Laynton stopped Impulsively in front of his table, pulled the drawer open, took out a sheet of paper and handed it to Wallen. "You'll get the drift of this yourself, I guess," he ventured. Wallen stared at the paper, at first with curious bewilderment and then, with the sudden flash of .comprehension, he was on his feet. It was a list of the ports of call scheduled for the Upolo on her last voyage ports of call that she had never made. "What does this mean?" he demanded In a low voice. "How did you come by "Your this?" father gave It to me," the captain answered. "And now, if you'll just listen for a minute, I'll give you the whole story, and you'll 3ee for yourself. First I might as well tell you, though, that I own this sttlp. Well, I was in Honolulu light, you understand when your father came aboard one evening and offered to charter me for a three months' cruise down here. He made the price right, paid the money down in advance, and I closed with him. "He gave me the list of ports, and said his son was on a trading bark called the Upolo, and that he wanted to get track of him as soon as possible, and offered an extra bonus for all hands if we made a quick job of it. That's all I know about the reason for the cruise. Well, to cut a long story short, we started away, and were down just south of the line when the accident happened. "Your father was alone down in his cabin. We heard a shot, rushed below, and, thinking it strange that he didn't show up- - in the excitement, called to him but got no answer. Well, we burst in his cabin door and found him dead across the bunk." "You mean," said Wallen through tight lips, "that he committed sui- NSISTED Wns yes.

A cold, merciless passion swept upon him. Someone on this ship was the murderer. Was It this man here? What was at the bottom of it all?

There's still say, a matter of two months before 's that charter expires, and the yours until it does in your cide?" "No. Wait!" Captain Laynton shook his head. "It wasn't that.

And" Laynton poured himself another glass from the bottle, gulped it down, and wiped his lips with the back of his hand "well," I'm trying to give it to you in a few words we buried him at sea of course." Wallen turned his back and stared out of one of the forward portholes down onto the dirty foredeck. Wns the man lying? Was he telling the Lord John Russell. During the years of my uncle's retirement I wns much more In h's company than had been possible when I was a schoolboy and he wns foreicn secretary or prime minister, rem c a package father's place. That's square, isn't it?" Wallen hesitated thoughtfully. On the face of it it was both square and honorable. He began to wonder if he had misjudged the man. And yet, instinctively, In spite of that, there seemed something specious even in the honesty that appeared to underlie the other's motives. He had reason enough to distrust every soul on board a ship where he was morally certain his father had been murdered ! Two months If he accepted the captain's offer. If he had only something to work on ! Something! Yes, he had something. Drink-Hous- e Sam of Singapore! Captain Laynton spoke again: "Look here I" he said in almost hurt tones. "I can't make you any fairer proposition than that. Can I?" "No," said W.tllen instantly, his mind made up. "And I'll accept your offer, captain, and thank you heartily for It." "Good!" returned Laynton promptly. "Well, with that settled, what's the sailing orders? We've got steam up and can get away any minute you say the word." "Then by all means get away at once!" be laughed easily. "And" he hesitated "let's see! I guess you'd better shape up for Singapore. Yes, call it Singapore for a starter." "Right !" answered Laynton.
