Prisons and work houses are full al
Hearts are heavy and hours are
For sin conquers when alcohol slays,
The efforts of the good and the
work of the strong.
Stalwart boys with faces fair,
And hearts that mean to do right,
March straight into the Deamon’s
And, we fear, forever have lost the
Lascivious acts and the gambling
Flourish where Rum commands;
Fond mothers wear coronets of gray,
Drink, the souls of our boys de
For ages long, women have sobbed
And the world has suffered its loss,
For men, of great minds, have been

The seamen’s trained eyes were not
leng in making out that the light
itself was not moving. It couldn’t be
a ship, for it was one ball of light
instead of many; nor a lighthouse,
the glare was too red; nor a buoy?
No, they knew their steady glow too
well. Then what was it, they were
getting nearer and nearer to? It
couldn’t be an hallucination, for all
of them saw it. They could not tell
how far they were from it, but they
were bending every energy. The
light was growing—from a ball like
a man’s hat, it had grown to the
size of a carriage wheel and, “Look ”
cried Maybeth, “it is shaping up like
a candle flame.”
Even Marie forgot her stoic silence.
“I see some ta’l, dark something,
outlined against the light,” she ex
claimed. “Could it be a sailing vessel
“God forbid.” said Mrs. Montrose,
“that our bones should be dashed to
pieces like that.”
“But I tell you.” persisted Marie,
“there is a —there’s more than one
tall, dark shadow! Can’t you see, that
is smoke, too?”
A groan of disappointment was all
the answer that came, for they could
see it was a fire, that was sure, but
what? Where? How foolish; was
there anything else but a burning
ship that could produce a rea 1 fire in
mid-ocean? Surely not.
The men relaxed from their nerve
straining race. Making a telescope
of his hands, Devereaux declared,
“Miss LeCrew is right, there are
dark skeleton-like shadows between
us and that fire, or—whatever it is.”
“Holy Saints, presarve us!” ex
claimed O’Garity, “see that? Watch
these swells, Sam,” he cried excitedly
to the big brawny fellow on the port
THE GOLDEN AGE
side of the bow; “Sure as iver I live,
there’s land not far off.”
“Where can we be?” asked Dever
“That’s too much for me. I’ve rode
the old Atlantic many a day in both
rough and smooth seas, an’ I know
ivery knot of the reg’lar track; but
this is new sailin’ ter me. Yet I’m
fellin’ ye we are nearin’ land.”
As gradually as the hidden im
print comes out on the negative in
the hands of the photographer, as
the great dark splotch against the
horizon, with its torch of flame,
came out before them. The tall
shadows they were finding, were
some kind of growth, just what they
were not sure. Palms, they reasoned ;
but the fire? It was beyond them.

of once more resting their feet on
