"Then charge 'em accardin', Mr. Landlord, charge 'em accardin', zays I. Warter doan't cost 'ee nart, du 'un?" said Happy Jack, triumphantly.

His faith in Ned was strong, but he had found the opinion in the town so unanimous against him that he longed for an assurance that some one beside himself believed in Ned's innocence.

Shaking himself out of these melancholy forebodings Harrison Smith approached an old seaman with the offer of a "good evening" and a fill of tobacco. "Pretty quiet hereabouts," he remarked. The old man nodded. "Still I dare say you get steamers and such like popping in every day to liven things up." "Bearn't draught enuff for steamers. They doan't bother us much, steamers doan't."

"Ess, that's so; but we doan't take in folks for the axin'. Tu many queer caraters about." Will saw the man's eyes twinkle, yet he was puzzled at this unexpected problem. "Look here," he said, "I like you, and I'll deal fair by you an' tell you the rights of it. Step out here an' listen." "Mind, what you sez will be used against you, then." "Theer ban't no secret in it, for that matter."

The two boys stopped astonished. "We are going to Marsden," Ned replied; "but what's that to you?" "Doan't ee moind wot it be to oi," the boy said; "oi tell ee ee can't goa no further; yoi've got ter go back." "We shan't go back," Ned said; "we have got as much right to go this way as you have. This is not your land; and if it is, we ain't hurting it."

"This be worse nor I looked for," the boy said to himself; "I suppose I'll get used to it, but I doan't wonder that some young uns who ain't strong as I be are badly frighted at first."
