The tr.tni|i Steamer NlC ian,
with a cargo nf mules Cut the
Allies, had DO passengers mi
. hoard. I'he cip'ain, mate, and
'half a dozen men made up the
cre-v, and there were some ten
or twelve American cattlemen
aboard to look after the animals.
Cattlemen from the southern
parts of the United States, as
thse weie, come of a hardy
ract. At no time do they put
much value on human life,
even their own; but they are
scarcley of a breed likely to
take sitting down a coldblooded
attempt at murder by a set of
German* The journey was
uneventful. As the Nicosian
neared the shores of Europe the
sea got up slightly, but nol
enough to cause any trouble.
Suddenly the watch reported a
German submarine lying across
their track. She had been al-
most invisible until He Nico
sian was almost upon her, being
scarcley more than a wash. A
torpedo was fired, and the Gt
man col ^urs hoisted. The tor
pedo Struck the Nicosian, but
her bulkheadi tie! I out, and she
scarcely did more than sink a
fool deeper with a heavy list to
port. Her engines were, of
^ course, stopped at once, but
her waj a i iiei nearei i"
and past the submarine.
As (he slowed down one of
Itt-r boat! Ma* lowered and an
it e in (ir M adj Meamv Inle
in- aubniar-ini fired six or sevan
shells. The cattlemen, believ
ing that the Nicosian was the
safei of the two, refused to en
ter the first boat, in which were
the captain and crew. The lul
ter had seen a strangely built
craft coming up from the east,
and it is possible that somesus
picion of the new comer's am
az.ing pace may have induced
the captain to make all speed to
meet her. Anyway, the captain
and crew of Hie NicosianBri
tish alldisappear from this
moment from the narrative.
The German officer found him
sell <>n velvet. He had winged
the Nicosian, which remained
helpless before him, and he had
another torpedo waiting for the
clumsy looking new come.. It
has been supposed that he had
only one torpedo left, and that
he was therefore anxious todis
pose of the Nicosian in another
way. But in any case there
would be economy in three or
four bombs at \o each instead
of a torpedo at $' of his two boats he sent off a
bombing party to finish off the
rippled Nicosian. Rut he rec
ckrned without his host. Scar
ce'.v had his boat's crew clam
bereil up the side of the Nico
sinn than a couple of shells put
an end to the submarine.
The captain, signalling to his
men as lie believed them to
beon the Nicosian that he
was coming aboard her, set out
himself to the cattle boat, while
the undisguised Baralong came
up at full speed.
The German officers inten-
tention was, of course, to secure
a footing on the Nicosian and
hoist a white flag in token of
surrender. He did not row or
swim towards the Baralong,
and he was not killed by any
any man on her. What was
actually taking place forms one
of the most thrilling tragedies
'hat ever the sea has ever
known. The cat t lemen, dis
covered that the Nicossian now
remained buoyant, were inclin-
ed o think that they had
chosen the better part, when
the putting off of a small boat
from- the German craft fillet1
with seamen, and with what
they needed little imagination
to recognise as bombs, made
them realize what the officer
proposed to do. Infuriated but
rendered cunning by their
plight, the cattlemenas ugh
a crew as ever waited a boat's
approacharmed themselves
with furnace bais, pieces i I
steel nearly three feet in length,
and as thick as their wrists.
The Germans came alongside
and climbed on deck. Once a-
board, the cattlemen made a
rush, and though the Germans
trusted to their firearms for I
minute there could be only one
end to the scuffle. Caught in
the net of laving bombs in an
inhabited ship, they could ex-
pect no mercy from any men,
and least of all from the infuri
ated Americans. One or two
were laid out then and there.
Afterwards there ensued the
grim and noisy chase puzzled
both officer, who was now ;il
most alongside, and the crew of
the Baralong. The trapped
Germans ran in all directions,
seeking safety in cabins and
lavatories, only to ha'
doors smashed in upon
Two mea tried to find a
in the tunnel of the pr<|
shaft Mm for the most i
was a short chase. In
midst of ii all the Germ,

crew came over the side
same fate was dealt out l<
The captain made f
bridge, no doubt that he
be seen and saved by the
mander of the Baralong
at that moment the pi
of the entire British Fleet
scarcely have saved hin
the Berserker rage of the C
men. Two firebars were
to his feet and he was t!
overboard. Then <
