THE GREAT STONE OF SARDIS




CHAPTER I. THE ARRIVAL OF THE EUTERPE-THALIA


It was about noon of a day in early summer that a westward-bound
Atlantic liner was rapidly nearing the port of New York. Not long
before, the old light-house on Montauk Point had been sighted, and the
company on board the vessel were animated by the knowledge that in a few
hours they would be at the end of their voyage.

The vessel now speeding along the southern coast of Long Island was the
Euterpe-Thalia, from Southampton. On Wednesday morning she had left her
English port, and many of her passengers were naturally anxious to be
on shore in time to transact their business on the last day of the week.
There were even some who expected to make their return voyage on the
Melpomene-Thalia, which would leave New York on the next Monday.

The Euterpe-Thalia was one of those combination ocean vessels which had
now been in use for nearly ten years, and although the present voyage
was not a particularly rapid one, it had been made in a little less than
three days.

As may be easily imagined, a vessel like this was a very different
craft from the old steamers which used to cross the Atlantic--"ocean
greyhounds" they were called--in the latter part of the nineteenth
century.

It would be out of place here to give a full description of the vessels
which at the period of our story, in 1947, crossed the Atlantic at
an average time of three days, but an idea of their construction
will suffice. Most of these vessels belonged to the class of the
Euterpe-Thalia, and were, in fact, compound marine structures, the two
portions being entirely distinct from each other. The great hull of
each of these vessels contained nothing but its electric engines and its
propelling machinery, with the necessary fuel and adjuncts.
