THE career of Captain Kidd is among the great romances (if tho term is not too elastically used here) in pirate literature. In 1695, we aro toM, ho came to London with a sloop of his own to trade. Such was his respectability that he was recommended as fit to command a vessel sent to cruiso the Eastern seas against pirates. With the King's commission in his pocket he sailed from Plymouth and, in 1697, reached Madagascar where, instead of hunting the pirates down, he consorted with them. Such was the fall of Captain Kidd. Two years later he was arrested and found guilty of murder and hanged. So strange a story makes a grand conclusion to this exciting series about those rogues who, for all their atrocities, still appeal to the simple man in all of us.
