NAISH drummed his fingers on the table. He closed and idly opened and closed the journal. The ship oppressed him. The ship in her present aspect was a prison. He could identify by their snores or the tossing of their sweaty bodies Mr. Cupp and Mr. Bothwick, and Blageen, .Ally, who had a slight nasal drip and made a snuffling whistle approximately every other breath, Larned, Tatem, Diego, Kitchen, Oliphant and Titcomb. The,: carpenter, he recalled, bore the full name of Nebud- chadnezzar Oliphant. It was a •religious name, one from the Bible. Nebudchadnezzar, he had been taught at school, had been King of Babylon. It was old Neb who had carried the Jewish peo- ,ple into captivity. But Oliphant «ame from Halibut Point on Cape Ann. Both he and the cooper were from the Cape. Titcomb was out of Annifiquam, although originally his folks had lived on the Isle of Shoalc. When he was vexed with him, Oliphant accused the cooper of being a •Won-curser!" and that mad« Titcomb angry. .It wa« the term for a wrecker, and meant that Tltcomb's folks had made their living from sunken «hips. There had been more than a little wrecking done on the Isle ol Shoals. He knew that behind hit back the fo'c'sle gang now called Mr. Cupp "Hongry-Hongry" because of the mate's Arctic experience, Mr. Flnnle's wife, Rachel, was supposed to be unfaithful to him with » snuff-grinder from Lynn. Checkers, the cook, I Pequot India* from Stonington, bid BY ROBERT CAR.SB killed a man in a sealer once off the Chilean coast and been tried and. acquitted in Valparaiso on grounds of self-defense. Blageen stood in quiet fear of him; he never entered the galley unless at definite invitation. But since they had been aboard together, the steward hadn't done much to corrupt Alfy. The boy had been previously educated. Last week, Mr. Cupp had caught him in the forward lazar- ette smoking tobacco stolen from Larned in a pipe that belonged to Diego. His explanation was that he had been hiding from his uncle's wrath after he had found him stealing sugar out of ship's stores which he insisted Blageen hoped to sell at a great profit in some port. Mr. Cupp had been so impressed by the story that he had almost forgotten to use his belt end on Alfy. ' • • • UE on deck, hfe sextant in ME hand, he felt keen, certain of every gesture, all his perceptions acute. When he and Mr. Bothwick had taken the observations and Bothwick had entered them on the log slate, he turned to Mr. Cupp who at four o'clock must have moved past him in the cabin while he slept. 'Enough of this, mister," he said. "All we've done on these courses if gather Sargossa weed oh our bottom. You've told me there's a chance of whale on the Brazil Banks." "That's right, sir," Mr. Cupp said. "But, mind ye, no guarantees, Whale are where you find F «m." 'I've learned as much," Naish aald. "But head her around. Put her on a west-nor'west. From the cloud, we'll catch wind out of the sou'east with the sun." "West-nor'west it is, sir," Mr. Cupp said. "Soon as there's wind, I'll haul her." Nalio went below fctlinf odd- ly at peace. He was very hungry, and once he had worked his observations and plotted them and had his breakfast, he'd sleep. And the wind was coming aboard; on deck, the watches ran to get at the sheets and braces, bring the ship to the new course. Away, away Brazil. And let there be whale, plenty and aplenty whale for the old Obis with her seaweed skirt * * « IT was, Mr. Cupp said, a fair- sized pod of right whale. They lay some six or seven miles distant over the slowly heaving sea and swam in almost geometric alignment through the broad yellow field of brit. 'Brit brings 'em," Mr. Cupp said, hoarse in his excitement. "They live on it. Shall I lower, sir," "Lower, sir, and I'll go aloft at once." Cupp moved with supple speed toward his boat. Diego was already in it, preparing to lower. The sailors on lookout at the three mast-heads were still crying in the ululating fashion they had learned from the harpooners, "Thar she blows! Oh, blo-owi an' white wat-ers!" Alfy handed him a glass up through the scuttle before he was on the second step. "Mr. Bothwick," he called as he ran forward to the mainmast, "back the main and hold her easy off the wind till I tell you different." On the main topmast crosstrees he slipped under the padded hoop and braced himself and swung the glass on the pod. Five. No, six. Big fish, too, and when they breathed the twin spouts were ardent white tufts .that trembled yards above the great gray hunch of the heads. Astern • of them, broad as a township larfe, marvelously even, were the spaces they had eaten through the brit Mr. Cupp, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Finnie were sailing their boat* into the brit. Their plan was to come upon the whales from behind. .This was the safest way, because head-on a beast of the size of thoM could see his «!•< emy in time to sound, or use tail and flukes to smash a boat.
