CHAPTER XVII - THINGS HAPPEN !

Molly was a good sailor : the sea was in her blood. So, from that point of view, the trip was not such a hardship as it might have been. But she was terribly unhappy. The fact that her father was there also, did not make it any easier for her. The Commander was entirely unapproachable. His face wore a blank expression and his eyes seemed almost unseeing at times. The only times she saw him were when he joined her for meals in the small saloon, which had been put completely at their disposal. It was difficult for Molly to keep her spirits up. There was not a soul for her to talk to ; for though there were welltrained servants to wait on them, and the whole ship's company going about their duties as usual, she dared not speak to them. Somehow or other, she realised that her father's life depended on her following his lead. Her movements were mostly confined to her cabin and the saloon, though she was allowed on deck the first night when it got dark. She could not see much concerning the ship she was on, because they travelled in complete darkness all the time. On the second day they struck smooth water and Molly guessed rightly that they had entered a river. They steamed slowly now, and proceeded at half-speed until dark that night, when with much rattling of chains and blowing of whistles the ship berthed at some coal staithes. Molly had been kept below this night, and soon after dinner her father came in and spoke to her :
" You are to get ready for a journey," he said. "We are leaving the boat."
For the first time since they had started this nightmare of a journey, he had broken silence. Molly was so pent up that she burst into tears at the sound of his voice.
" Oh, Father," she cried. " Tell me what this is all about. I'm so frightened."
A look of pity seemed to come into the Commander's
