" You must slow up here," said the pilot The Gernian master of the ship could not understand Ithe order. " What is the matter ? " he asked. SGermany and England are at war ' was the reply. The ship's captain was fairly stag gered at the news for a moment, Then he made a rush for the wheel, in a mad endeavor to ignore the au thority of the pilt and get away to sea. " Every gun in the Qucensclifi forts is pointed at you and the torpedo boeat Countess of H-opetoun. with her tubos fully loaded, is alongside. It you at tempt that, we shall all go to thle hot tom," Captain Easton said, very calmly, and it made the German think again. Though mnuch surprisaed at the turn of eiuets, hh soon saw that he had to accept the situation.
