Excerpt: ... "Let us go on deck," said Frank, gravely. They passed out of the cabin, and the crew, knowing what had happened, gave Frank a cheer. He lifted his cap, and said: "Quartermaster, get the ensign and bend it on the halyards." The order was obeyed. "Run it up," said Frank, taking off his cap and facing aft, while the others imitated him. When the flag reached the peak of the spankergaff he put on his cap, turned, and wrung his uncle's hand. "Uncle Hiram," he said, " I'll do my best to deserve the trust you have reposed in me. Every morning at eight bells that flag will go up, and every evening at sunset it will come down, and as I shall never again be unfaithful to it, so I shall never be unfaithful to you." He turned to the two cadets and grasped their hands. "Fellows, you've been real friends. Hal, if I'd been as cool and steady as you I'd never have turned my back on the flag." "But you've had your punishment, old man, and now the future is bright before you." "Bob," said Frank, turning and clasping his cousin's hand, "you and I have got a good deal more than we deserve, but we'll try to make your father. feel that he's done wisely, won't we?" "That we will," replied Bob. And then Minnie, with her eyes full of tears, ran up and kissed both of them. "Jee-whiz!" exclaimed Peter; "as my mother used to say w'en she were eatin' huckleberry pie, 'This 'ere's good 'nuff fur me.'" THE END By THOMAS W. KNOX: The "boy Travellers" Series. Illustrated.
