A BENEFIT PERFORMANCE

Hark ! Do you notice anything about the beat of the engines?"
" Not being an expert, can't say I do. They sound a trifle more asthmatic than usual, perhaps.
What's up?"
" Somebody has got the donkey-pump at work," said Hughie. " It may be Angus, after all, monkeying with the water-ballast. Hallo !" He leaned over the stern - rail and peered down. "Do you notice anything unusual about the propeller?"
" It seems to be kicking up a bit of a dust," said Allerton. "Is it going round faster, or getting nearer the surface? "
"It's half out of the water," said Hughie. "That means that the old man has pumped out the after double-bottom tank. Look, we're all down by the head!"
The two stepped out from behind the wheelhouse and gazed forward. The flush deck of the Orinoco was undoubtedly running downhill towards the bows.
" What's the game?" inquired Allerton excitedly.
Hughie was thinking. Presently he said
" I'm not sure, but his next move should tell us. Either he is trying to drive her nose under and sink her by manipulating the water-ballast, which seems a hopeless job in a flat calm like this, and suicidal if it comes off ; or else he is working up for a scare of some kind, which will frighten the crew into Hallo ? what's that ?"
