Rlio   wished    'liim   'good-night     and
wt'nt out, and iJlannerin^ lit his pipe'

flection  which he struck wus     not    a
frittering one.  The girl1 he had  m.ir-

warmer?—in   it., I   .
. The storm fell as suddenly us it
had .risen; nnd Mann...ring, slowly and
Willi immense calm and patieiice rebuilt Nin'ii's hut. His li.-iirt was lull
of pity for her—of soinelluiig warmer, of which hi: was oiily pin lly und
dimly  conscious.      nu  did  not    know

And ,.\"ina'     She  I.iy awake to.s-.ing
from   side  to  ssid*—on  his   bid.       The
fot.dly, with a thrill of passionate
longing. His wife! How much it
ineanf to him!
But he would not call her. No
doubt she was tired. He would wait,
and at breakfast, as they sat opposite to each other, like husband and
wife, he would open his heart to her
—would tell her that he loved her,
would—yes,  claim her!
He  went  back  to  the saloon.      No
breakfast was laid;  but he made   up
the lire  and  sat  down  to   wait     pa-

It was a hideous reflection, and it

wuiied until the boat .had been
launched,, but had taken the raft-
had .run 'all and every risk ratl&r
than remain, another ,day, oh the island with him or1 confide herself to
his care  in a joint, voyage.'
Hours passi-d and  he'still, sat storing with vacant 'eyes at this    sea. "It
did  not occur  to him' to  launch   thc
boat  aiid   'attempt    to    follow   her.
What good would it be'if he came up,
witli.  'hcj"','   She,     would    jirobably
throw herself into, the sea -at his approach,  she     was 'to  proud,  so  mistrustful  of  him.   He  got  up  at   last,
'and   wandered about with ,thc air  of

buthe. was scarcely, conscious of wiiat

hunger nor thirst; but/after a time a
strange     feeling  of    exhaustion,      of
craving ,for    sleep,    .came   over  hiin,
anli he dropped down*.just outside his
hut,and fell into  a deep sleep.      ''
It probably saved his reason and
prepared hint for the still, heavier
blow 'that Fate was to deal hiyi.
He slept right through the night
and past the dawn; and 'it was tho
soughing of the wind and the harsh
crash of thc waves-of tho beach that
awoke him. ■ It had been raining
heavily and he was ,wet through, but
he did not feci cold, for fever" was
I,warming his blood with a baleful
heat. As ho stretched "himself back
came his misery with a' sharp ^tdr-
,ture; 'and with ,a groan, he dropped
,his> arms'', to his t side anci'> looked
round as if he were trying to" pet0-
suade himself that it .-was a,'dream,'
and that ho should see OMna corning
swiftly  toward him.1 - ''    j
Hut instead of* tho vision of Jier
fair, fresh grace and beauty, his
burning eyes tell upon something on
tho beach. Long before ho had
reached it he saw  what it  was.,
It was the raft, or rather thc Remains of it. . The sail,had gone, tho
mast, was i broken, half the logs had
been torn away; thc thing had been
wrecked in thc storm which had raged while he slept, and tho incoming
tide had cast it.at his foot.,
And A'ina! While he stared from
tho wrecked raft to the sea and back
again from the sea to the raft a
small object .floating on the water
caught his eye.
Ho fixed his gaze on it, beginning
to tremble and shake, flung himself
into the water'1 und swam for the
thing. When he came back with .it
clutched in his hand, his face was
white and  his eyes starting.
It was the little woollen cap Nina
had worn.
Panting with his exertion and the'
agony that the assurance of her
death caused him, he lay full length
on the sand, his face upturned to
the sun which broke out suddenly
and mocked him pitilessly.
It was three chij s after this that
in a'dogged, sullen fashion he hauled
the cu'noe down to tho beach, and,
putting in some provisions, made
readv to sail. lie wns going, not
because he had any'desire for life or
10 go back to civilization, but because the island had become intolci-
able to him. You sec, it' was impossible  to forget her in a placo  of
which every feature* kept hr-r-vividly,
ngoni/ingly in his memory,- and he
knew* that if he lemuined any longer
brooding, brooding over his loss and
the tiagic circum*-lances attending it
that Jie must inevitably go mad.
Once or twice, in his tc-riible solitude, a devil jn his brain called
"Suicide" had whispered alluringly
to him. He was going because thete
was just enough of the .spirit ol a
man lell in him to make him .shrink
fiom insanity  and  selt-desti net ion.
l-'or     the    last    time    he   wandered
over   the UmiuIiui scene,   the exqiusite-
| 1«  beautiful  place which  his  dawning
j love    had   been   rapidly  transforming
into   Home,   but   it' was   a   hc-ll   now.
His    lnek-histic-    eves   fell     upon   the
I heap   of  gold   quart/,   which   lav  out-
i side  Nina's  hut,   but   it,  did   not keep
