FOMOy the   Utile   midshipman,   Had   been   six
, months    out  'of    tire    Naval    Academy,    and
wns   really   nineteen   years   old,   but   being
' only'flvc  foot  high,   with a  complexion  like
strawberries  nnd  cream  and  eyes  that 'were
wells of blue eyed Innocence, he looked to be nbout
bivtccn.    He was, In fact,'the senior midshipman In
the   steerage   of-the-United   States   despatch   b-.ab,
,   Vulture.     There  wore  two  other midshipmen,. Jted-
", ward ond Clark, both of. whom looked all of twea-'
ly-two and  were reckoned not unworthy of serious
notice by' the daughters of consuls'and  naval offl-

'„ were"ft'foot  taller  ond  a   foot  broade'r  than   !I(.tla

and'was himself merely an old,yougstcr, suld'to his,,
executive,' Ross,  after  a' month's'trying  cut  of   his ,

ir   Tho Vulture wns nt everybody's beck nnd call.   The
times were troublous nnd the despatch'boat was valuable, not only forerunning errands, but' for "taking a
. hand ln  the fighting.    Tho Vulture  lrid  come down
from tlie north, nnd hnd gone, south ti Hong Kong, a
'   f.ivorlt-0 station which tho Vulture wns never allowed'
1    to enjoy fpr long. The south const i?ee;"oJ watching ns
'much ns the north, nnd watclj-od It-was by nnv-il ships
of all countries.   The Vulture did lis part.   When there'
,wcre balls on nt Hong Kong and typhoon's were brewing seemed to be the time chosen by Adtnii-nl Cotes-
worth, ''the Amcrican  flag' officer nt  that station,  to
r send the /Vulture scuttling off-upon some 'espedjtlon   ,
of pacification or threatening,   or   negotiations" with
Chinamen;-, who lied nnd bawled with oqn.-il,vigor, or,
worst of all,-to act In concert with the slilj>"5 of other
nations." in this Inst case,'the Vulture being an inslg-
'nlflcatit lit tlo thing, her commander'nHvnys snMioiow

poor little, Vulture could rest from her labors.   It was t
, , September, tbe typhoon time was nearly over nn'd.Mre
-,   nai'Dor or ning ic«nff mp imii-u* ci.r,ra mm ti.o naval
nnchgrnge wns not lonely.   That meant luncheons, dinners, teas and- balls every dny and Sunday, too.
Ilong Kong wns a heaven for midshipmen, ospoel-il-
ly for tho midshipmen ot the Vulture. 1'hc bright
particular stars of the Ilong Kong entertainments
wore the„ three, daughters of Ad mini Ttrucc-Konset,
commanding tiie naval station nt Hong Kong.
Two of thoso girls, Alicia, aged twenty-nine, nnd
Josephine, nged twenty-seven, were ndniHtcdly tins
handsomest and tallest girls nt Ilong Kong. There
wns-a third daughter, little Don, barely eighteen,
nnd just out of the schoolroom, and who wns'nnUi-
rally nnd Inevitably allotted to midshipman. She wns
not beautiful like her sisters and was so *smnll tint
a tall mail looked ridiculous dancing wllh her. Little Ford, being very short, naturally asplied to tho
Juno-like Alicia and Josephine r.ruv.o-Kensct null
spoke to his fellow midshipmen Ik, & patronizing
manner of littlo Don, ns follows:— .
"Xlcc little thing, but schooig'.rlici—bushes when

aboard the Melampns nnd asking If Furd onn be of
any assistance to Vice Admiral Harbotdi" '  '
Itedwnid's gloomy prognostication  was fu'iiHrj ns
j,   he said, within twenty-four hours.    Just at tlie hour
,upon which tbe Cecile had nnivod, ou .'lie next afUr-
noon tbe Seahorse, third cias3 IJritlsIr cruiser, was seen
coming   down   the   riyer,   while   the   big   Melumpiu
came churning up stream. ' ,
Then followed six tcdieus cViys In which every! ody
In the Vulture, tha Melampas, the Seahorse nnd lire
Cecilo was-bored fo death, except little Ford. Ail four ,
vessels lay nt anchor. The Cecile, knowing that the
Melampas and'the Seahorse would like to be fluking
up and down the river, perversely remained'at Miry
Yun, and the Melampas'and the Seahorse f-ecrred to
have a singular iris Inertia which prevented them from
leaving. The doctors were practically In command (if
the ships and prohibited nil Intercourse with the bho.-o
except what was absolutely necessary 'with the post
office' aud telegraph station.

Europeans'and Americans, who were In charge of the
factory. ■ Luckily, 'there" were no women with them,
iiittle Ford examined carefully the orders given'to
naikett by Xclralrtil COteswortb. They were very
clear.- The flag officer present was to bo consulted,
butjf assistance was,asked from Ln-Ivinng, the com-
.mnuder'of the Vulture was to go to Ln-IClang If tbe
factory people cnlledjfor help. ■ .
That,settled i't. "Little Ford pnt ofT in the launch
for the Melampas, and, according to the written Instructions, stated the circumstances to ,fhc senior
naval -officer present. Admiral Unrbord, down in tho
,cabin quarters, from wliich he liad ruthlessly turned
out the son of a duke,, read the letter which little
Ford'brought and "then laughed'and produced another
one. ,
"Here Is one," he said, "from Brownp a Birming-
mnn', who owns a one-fourth Interest in the
y and is tbe hend of the bookkeeping department, lie snys the scare ls perfectly ridiculous; that
the yellow slips only mcnn*thnt the birthday of tha
Empress is to be,eclebratc-d with extra fireworks, anil
Brown doesn't" want the natives ' frightened by nn
nrmed force coming up thero and disorganizing everything.* The* manager, of the factory is a new man
and is afraid of _the''gliost of a Chinamnn."   o "  '
Little .Ford" received this hi silence and, Admiral
nnrbord, who had In gre.it'perfection the gentle art
of speaking his.mind, continued"as follows:— '
"Of course it, would be'a frolic for" every'youngster ln every ship here' and would be horseplay
lor the 'sallois to go up the counti-y^pd'*1 make n
disturbance, but tlitre11 is nd^-<fcc?aslon 'for it.' Besides; the,whole1-region around bore Is full of si.i.-.n-
..      The Horse Marines.        ' " .
' "For my part," said Hod ward, who wns sl\- foot
high and broad In proportion, '.'I like tbe little one
better thnn those two great horse marines, hor sisters."
"Horse marines!" replied little Ford,- severe ln
tho dl-jnlty of the senior midshipman, "isn't a
proper terra to apply to Indies. I don"t wish to hear
lt ngnln." ,
They were all thrco, sitting around the tnblo at
the twelve o'clock breakfast when this conversation occurred. Just thon the music sounded for
tho mail orderly. There ls a curious kind of psychic knowledge In a ship when orders aro hclng
received   to  l-«avo.
In a little while everybody on board knew rumors of
threatened trouble up tho river had reached Ilong
Kong. There wns a factory some distance up, owned
nnd operated by Americans nnd I'ngllsh, nt the vlllnge
of T.u-Klnng, on the left bank. It wns reached by a
•little stream, tho Shaushl, navigable for boats nnd
launches for fifteen miles, then n good road of five
miles led to Lu-Klang. At the. mouth of the little river
was a small town; Moy Tun. where there w.asfi mis-.,
clon'nry station and hospital. The Vulfiire was to go up
to Moy Yun nnd remain'In and about the neighborhood
for a fortnight, her comuiriiider keeping in communication every dny or two with Admiral Cotcswortli, the
'American Admiral at Hong Kong.,
Little Ford, who hail'nn engagement to dance with
he small Druce-1-Censet girl, wote her, from motives of
.pity, a note of farewell. This note made the child's In-,
.iiocent heart nche and shohiid ltaiwny id a .small box
'.Hi which she kept n cap 'ribbon that little Ford had
■cneo tied around her arm, and she wept some girlish
tears over both fire note and the cap ribbon. Little
'Ford, meanwhile,' wns conversing,with .Mr. Hunks, the
Vulture's .carpenter, who was commonly known ns
"Old Sensoned Timber." Mr. Hunks hnd twice in the
course of his navril career entered civil life only io return to his first love. A
"I loll you whnt, Mr. Ford," said Mr. Hunks solemn-
-y. changing Iris quid, "some people ain't got the eon-
rUlenc-c they ouglrter have ln a young orllcer., 1 went
'hroiig'i the civil war nnd I seen sonic of thorn little
stand, Mr. Fold, Nyarn't no merry jest, nor child's play
neither, and If we dhlirt have much fighting to do we
hnd just this kind of tiling wo do now—keping people
quiet ns don't want lo be kep' quiet."
'it wns two days' run up to Moy Yun, nnd when H.rl-
kott arrived and wont ashore, with little Ford as hl3
aid,'to'pay his official visit to (ho British consular
agent, lie felt like cursing nnd ' swearing nt the
panicky nnd hysterical state of mind of ihe people nt
I.u-KJang. Ilrnlstod, the consular agent, scouted tho
notion.of any trouble in that region.
Always in Panic.
"Qulel ns lambs, they are," ho said. "The factory
people have got two or three thousand pounds Invested tliere nnd they arc always in a panic for fear
something will happen, but there Isn't the least sign
of any dlstuibanco. Mnyl have the pleasure of your
company to dinner to-night? Some of the men from
the American missionary hospital here are coming to
> dinner and I should be very pl.-ul if you and such officers ns you cau spare would join them. I should
especially like lo have your surgeon., You have one, I
''Oh, yes," answered Halkett, "Doctor Wardlaw—
very clever fellow and spenks Chinese.".
"Can you bring any othor of your officers? Thore
aro to be Indies hero," said Brnlsted.
"With great plcnsure," replied llalkett. "I can
bring my two lieutenants, Mr. Burbnpe and Mr. Boss.
Cnpltnl young fellows they are. Thank you very
Little Ford, sitting by, felt himself highly insulted
whon naikett completely Ignored him. Ills ouly consolation wns that, being the senior midshipman, ho
would hnve commnnd of tho ship ns she Iny nt nncbor
ln the placid river by the quiet little town for nt least
three hours nnd could walk the bridge, nlone and unmolested, with tho trumpet under his nrm. Little
Ford loved lo bawl through tlie commander's trumpet,
but being only n midshipman naturally hnd very few
opportunities of so doing.
cAt, hnlf-pnst seven the launch went nsliore with
Haiicett, 'the: two .lieutenants and the doctor. ' At half-
past nine It wns-to return for them.
, It was nearly,ten o'clock, on a wnrm, bright September night, when the launch returned. , Within it was
only one man, Wnrdlnw. Tie had gone away dressed
in "social Intercourse" uniform, but ho came back in
n nondescript suit of linen clothes that .evidently did
not belong to him. He went Immediately to the bridge
nnd reported, touching his cap to Ford as ii' the latter
had  been Admiral Cotcswortli himself.
"Most extnipidlnnry thing has happened," said
Wnrdlnw. "We arrived'nt the consular agent's house
nnd-found aii. agreeable dinner'parly. Among them'
was a'young .man,'the son of n missionary. He was
slaying as a 'guest nt Mr. Brnlste'd's hoii^e- and had
been ailing for several days, itc made nn- 'effort .to
conic t.o the dinner table nnd I noticed he looked very
bad, nnd during tlio dinner, he came to look worse.
He was, sitting at the other end of the table, but I
suspected that he'wns'.sickening-with something or
oilier, whether ehivkenpox, or smallpox I couldn't
tell, but T'kept my oyc p» him.   We,-were at dinner nn
young  fellow   tumbled over  insensible.    There   hnp-'
Iicned to be nt the dinner n couple of doctors fromjhe
IiOiprtai, ncd in ti\o minutes after we examined the
young man we agreed lt was the worst case of confluent smallpox any,of ns had over seen. Tbe medical
inis.t.icu.iilcs   took  charge  of   everybody  and   eveiy-
tliing  at  onco,   established  a   strlck  quarantine  nnd
took  the young man  off to  the hospital.    Luckily I
had s.at some distance doivu the tnblo away from the
smallpox man, nnd I went to the hospital tn.il took.n
bath  in  an   antiseptic  that  would  lake  the   hide  oft
a giaven litnage. got n fresh suit of clothes, and here
I am.    You won't see Captain Halkett or any of the
ollicers of this ship for tho next nine days. 'I sha'n't
seo thorn either, unless I am needed in consultation.
Tlio medical missionary, Dr. Malcolm, Is a thoroughly
competent nr.nn and has a smallpox waid In his hospital, and If a ense should develop it will be looked
after from the beginning"    (
"I have some vorbnboiders for you," said Ward-
law. "Of course, nothing .could be transmitted in
writing. Captain ITnlliOtt desires you to look In
ills desk, where you win find -the orders under
which he Is acting, nnd to telegraph the state of
n(fairs -to Admiral Cotcswortli at nong Kong.- You
will remain at nncbor until you receive further
orders  from .Admiral  Cotesworth."
Little Ford felt every inch a captain when he seated
himself nt the commander's detk nnd wrote out hl3
report to A-dmirnl Coteswoith, signing it "E. L. Ford,
United States Navy, commanding U. S. S. despatch
boat Vulture."
In the course of a day n, reply camo from Admiral
Cotcswortli addressed to "Midshipman E. L. Ford,
United Slates Navy, commanding U. S. despatch boat
Vulture." Although couched In official lnngunge, this
despatch might be interpreted to mean that Ford was
to hold on to his anchors for nine days and look
Just as this despatch wns read In the glow of tho
golden afternoon, the smoko from the funnels of a big
cruiser wns been floating in the blue air nnd then the
great black hulk wns outlined against the sky and
river. Sho'was' coming down the river at a good clip
and presently cast her anchors, within n couple of
'cable lengths of the Vuilu're, .where there was a good
holding' ground. It was the second Class German
■ cruiser Cecll-e.        . .  f .'      ■   p. , ■ ■■■-,.
It is. a dlfll'.-ult.tiling to tnke enre of a ship, however small, .with only two watch ofilcers,' and  those
fwo midshipmen.    But Mr. minks, being the senior
warrant ofilcer nnd having a.standing bed place nnd a
tail to ills coat, was pressed into service nnd stood his
'watclr ns well as if he had had a commission, framed
and .hanging up In  his. cabin.'  As a  nintter of fact,
Hunk's was the.only man on board whom little Ford
'condescended    to ..consult,    being    well   aware    lhat
.neither Tiedwrinl nor Clark knew any. more than the
tempornry   commander   of  Iho    Vulture.
The Prophecy.
Iicdward, however, Irrul tiro toughest Job of any the
iroxt afternoon, which  was anticipated as follows by
that young olllcer to his chuiu, Clark:—
"Hot you two dollars next, pny day (hat we'll have a .
couple of  r.rilisli rnii-ei's. to shepherd the Cecile  bu
hls cap and shake hand-. • bluntly withllltle Fold.
fi Mr, Hunks.     "    ,
"I-jest  want to. congrathlnte you, C".p'n. „' I nevor'-
sorii   ntthiiig d^i.e   more   seninn'rilike, than   the   wnv
you bagged  these here Chinamen nn'd put dowrr  the
trouble.    There niu't no admiral In the navy as could
have done if any quicker or better."
Little Ford lifted his cap In reply.'
"I thnnkryou, Mr Hunks." he b'.'iid with much cere! '
mouy.   ,,.,"-
Then   there   was   a\ private, con versa tion.- and   the
Europeans agreed  to send  two 'representatives  b-i'-k
■to Moy Yun  to statd tl.cir cU'hr.s to tn-- ting ofilcer'
there,, while the  other  eight-remained  (u   Lu-Ki.ini' '
In  the  p,-ui„o that, followed little Fold  \»hNpoiod  to
Mr. Hunks:—        ' ,       "      '   " '
"I  sny, .Hunks,  what  do you  thlul:  I'd   belter  do'
next?"      * ■ „

"keep a stiff upper lip end tell him if"|here are nnv

"Don't you think. Mr. Hunks," saw in;le !Vrd still
sotto voce: '-it would' be a gded scheme to uiako thu

-Great!" replica ^^r. Hunks, In n rnptuiyus whisper,
.and don t l-t him go In no palanquin nor nc-kshiw
but make him loer It along with the rest of these here
Chinese rapscallions."
"HI have the pigtails cut off the'Lends of those Incendiaries and have their hands lieel With theie same

Little Fold, like nil American officers
drilled In naval etiquefte, went on board the Cecilo
nnd confided his Information to Captain Baron Yon
lindowltz. The Germans are not well up'ln naval etiquette, as wns shown on n certain May day in 1S0S at
Manila Bay, find thoy still follow the homespun custom common enough among German officers of asking
direct questions.
"May l" inquire," nsked Von Iln<.lowIl7, "what Admiral ilnrboid said In response to your information?"
Little Foul drew himself up nnd took thirty seconds
to think out his answer,.which came with icy polite-'
ness. c
, "II is not customary in the American navy to answer inquiries of this naturo, but 1 have no objection
to saving Admiral Ilnrboid has contrary information
and thinks th*re Is no occasion for au expedition to
"Gotteslieben! Then I do not go, cither," was the
answer of Von Badowltz.
Little  Foul roi-e stiffly.
"I have obeyed my Instructions." be said, '.'In consulting the senior nnvnl ofilcers here, nnd tlie obligations of^courtes.v in .Informing you, Captain Von Itado-
wltz.   I shall now net'upon my own judgment."
"You!" cried Von' Rndowltz, entirely unconscious
that he wns shattering the whole code of naval politeness. "A leetle poy like you!" Yon Rndowltz spoke
four languages, "out he was given to mixing up his
b's nnd n's when he spoke English under excitement.
Little Ford's Joy.
I.Iltle Ford, his boyish fnce a deep pink, drew himself up at lenst two Inches and bo-ived nnd snld something thnt  he once  heard  nn*American admiral  say
when he  wns deeply offended:— -,
"I beg you to excuse me from replying to that remark. It"ls of a naturo not understood in the American navy."
Then he mnrched up on dock, spoke to no oflieer
on the deck, except for the ofilclnl salute to the otlker
of the deck, ond run down the ladder, got into the
launch nnd was whirled away. In his heart a secret
exultation struggled with Indignation; hc was n.-.l
afraid, nnd if it proved to be a fool's errand he h.id
his orders to fall back upon. But if there should be
work ahead—little Ford's henit danced under his
trim little blouse—whnt a chance for a junior olllcer!
It wns only ten o'clock In the morning when tlie
bout expedition started from the Vulture. The
launch, lending, towed a couple of boats full of blue-
Jackets with carblucs find a littlo rapid firing gun,
about ns bigns an old fashioned handy billy. ■ ,     .
Ford was lint he-'launch. Bed ward In the second boat"'
arid Mr.' nunks iu the third boat. As the .boats started
up the little river the men from tire Vulture, lining '-
rail, raised n henr-ty cheer. They liked the boy's
spunk nnd spirit. Then, qulte.unexpoc'e.lly, from..llie
'Molnmpns and' her consort, tlie Seahorse, came another -ringing, If 'somewhat straggling, cheer, as .men
cheer without premeditation. .'    . ';   ' ' ■
It was:a little after oue o'clock in the day when the
roofs of the squalid town.of Lu-Kiang c-nine in sight.
Over them, all rose the great square, hideous bulk, of
tlie factory, with Its tall -chimney spouting smoke.
The town "wns not ,-wnlled. and soon the Americans
were threading the narrow nnd noisome streets. , As
thev entered Hunks spoke In n low voice to little
Ford. -
"Look a-thero, Cap'n Ford, nt them yellow snips.
I have made .two cruises In these here Chinese waters
nnd I ain't never seen them yellow strips stuck u;> on,
h house that' there warn't trouble ahead for everybody."
Little Ford's heart rose'. He had never known
Hunks' prognostications to go wrong, and no midshipman-of spirit desires anything better than trouble. If
it Involves lighting and n general row. As Mr. Hunks
