was the reason his house was so badly illuminatedfor although the lighting was most artistically distributed throughout the place, it was very subdued and yellow. But-as "Mrs. Commander" said-"Such good taste. It matches the gold of the hangings, my dear."

Colonel Kenton and the Commander had always been great friends. The fact that their wives did not " hit it off " seemed to draw them closer together. Very often, if the night were fine, they would stroll out after dinner on the terrace in front of their houses to enjoy a little chat as they smoked their cigars.
The view from there was extremely fine. Immediately below them was Frenchman's Haven-a strip of fine dry sand, covered with seaweed and pebbles ; so-called because a French brig once went ashore there. The right shoulder of this bay was a jutting point of the same cliff on which their houses stood. On this projecting point stood a small Coastguard Station. The left horn of the bay was made by a great stone pier which thrust its way boldly out amongst the treacherous breakers of the North Sea. This pier was well over a quarter of a mile long, and had a sort of lower story facing the river. Below the upper walk and walls-hidden in the thickness of the enormous granite masonry-were the works and secret machinery connected with the defences of the river. Along the side of this lower story was a narrow walk leading along to the lighthouse at the far end.
One night an extraordinary thing happened in this usually peaceful spot. A month or so after the new arrival had caused such a sensation by settling amongst them, the Colonel and his friend met as usual for their
