DARKNESS was on the. before the three prizes could be towed alongside the ship. The biggest, Naish's, was taken to the starboard side 'midship's arid' the other two let fall astern on haw- »ers. Then the cutting stage was run out over : Naish's animal and Mr. Wilson and Mr. Finnic •terted onto it Naish stopped Mr. Wilson in - surprise. "The men are bone-weary, at least my Uds. A few hours -rest should «rv« all hands well." Mr. Wilson shrugged a shoul- ider toward the rail. "By dawn, 'the sharks wouldn't leave us 10 fallen of lie outa the three Bih: Drive your lads, and keep on drivin' them till the -work is done."- . ' • "Very well." Naish said almost humbly. Hit coven had been taken trora the try works, the fire lit. It blazed higher, Higher as the first blubber strips were .cut, severed and sent Inboard. " Iron cressets filled with blubber scraps were kit alto and set along the rail for the mates out on the platform ar.d for the men who toiled on deck. Naish had seen such : a light at night aa he had swept pact at a distance in a merchant •hip. Tills was barbaric, this went back to the very roota of lift. The ihlp appeared *s U caught in a tragic conflagration. The harpooners who worked at, the try- works were, splashed with the blood. of th* priit, and ap were the other petty offlcen. and th* •attori on deck, the mn:?s.on the culUni platform. A dual? bad BY ROBERT CARSf been set up by .he men who hauled at the windlass, the words after the first chorus only a gathered grunt. They might be singing ancient Greek. Alongside hundreds of sharks swani'and fought and ate. Barracuda attacked them, five, six, seven barracuda against a shark. The sea was rifted to spume. Cascades sprang where the bodies locked,, leaped, and the snapping of teeth could be heard thro i the windlass clatter. : / cruel and a terrible place, the sea, but man possessed the greatest cruelty of all. Phtebe was to him in the moment nothing but a name. He was savage; he had as much part in this as any of his crew. When he had killed the whale, he had felt a surpassing exultation. - •'-.' * • * • \ NAISH'S throat was dry. He went, down into his cabin and took from the bottom of hii sea- chest the bottle of Medford rum he reserved for special occasions. The drink relaxed him, gave him a spurt of fresh energy. He went back on deck and forward. The harnooneri worked steadfastly,' he* saw, and .the, men down in the blubber room, although slathered with blood, slipping, stumbling in it, did their stowage well. The mates had. just cut loose the whale's head; with the enormously clumsy yet powerful double tackle rigged from the foremast cross-trees it was being heaved Inboard. It strained the mast and the shrouds to the utmost. The broad old ship canted far down to starboard and the dripping, bloody mass, nearly one half of the whale: in length and weight, veered inboard, was safely lowered away to deck AJfy stood at thfptrhntfer of th* tryworks heat. HI* *yes w*f« lUt* immense "Where's the steward?" Naish said. "B u -1 u h, suh," Airy said around the blubber he chewed. "Go fetch him for me," Naish said. AUy skateo, rather than walked aft; his feet were slick through the rivulets of oil. He skidded whooping while h« called for the steward. Blageen was pale and looked sick. "I want a 'John of rum for the lads. There must be some in stores.''^ "So, sir. Til bring it direcly." "You all right, steward?" "No, I ain't, sir. Stink, smudge and 'urlyburly 'ave got me down. T'-oper mad'ouse, this." Cat squalls to swift succession were beating up out of the South and the ship groaned wallowing. He took Checkers and broke out a fore staysail to steady her. That labor exhausted him; he dragged clumsily across the slippery deck to the quarter. * • • • IT would be wrong for him to go below and sleep, he knew. If the mates, if the crew worked, he should stay on deck. The master was always supposed to be the last man to be tired. But those minutes ol tension in the boat. The giant fin flailing about his head. The rose-pink immensity of the mou'thi the teeth. He dro-vscd. His head went down on his arms and while he still stood, he was sound asleep. Wild - shouting voices that shouted Alfy's name awoke him. He stared forward. The. men were all 'midships around th* tryw.orks. No further attempt at work was being made. He saw by the lopped heads, the slacked shoulders and loos* bodies that they were drunk. ; ' ' Alfy was on the main topgallant yard, the highest spar In th* ship He waved 'his arms and held the demijohn above his head u a symbol of victory, "Com* get it," he called down to them on deck, "Yer want* t! , ye pays m« first or 1 drop* It In th* ruddy seal" NaMr w*nt Mtb* Hi* imta rat* lines without being Men. , <T*B*CMU«M4) "I'm having a good laugh over my diary for January last year—I guess'all young girts ar* silly about boys!"
