For wh«n Kaui gave his orders, two, sometimes only one of the islandan want to the lints at which seven and eight of the crew had worked frantically and failed.

He drank fresh coconut milk and his wobbly teeth chunked into the soft whiteness of the kernel. He was ravished, lost; he could no longer think of anything except. satisfaction of his hunger. * * * NAISH'S desire was to remain withdrawn even from his shipmates until he could once more establish his sense of self. He had from the first day refused to look at the ship at her anchorage. Time, time to think uninterruptedly was his acute need. When the meh passed him, going back and forth along the atoll or to the beach or th* lagoon, h* offered only a short nod of greeting. It had been sufficient in his present state to make arrangements for them through Kaui, the English-speaking native who had piloted the ship. The greenles, Purdy, Post, Beedle, Jaeger, Cram, Alfy and Morrow, bunked together in a palm log and thatch shelter. Larned had quietly refused to share it with them; he was the one surviving petty officer, and built i shelter for himself between that of th* gr*eni*s and th* house Mr. Flnnle and Mr. Bothv.ick occupied. By the second week Mr. Finnic discovered a widow and moved inte her house, and Mr. Bpthwick lived on alone. Hi* men were safe, speedily regaining their health, and with th* exception of Mr. Finnic had committed no action that might draw the anger of the peaceful, hospitable natives. He found "-9.1 he watched the children at th«l pla>, and he learned that Pwe-haru was tat, pere-parie prisoners' base. He got to know the names of the children at their mothers called them. At night, he waited for the little coco oil lamps to be lit at the tombs of the dead. He afterwards shut his .eyes and with a humility new to him ^prayed for the men lost from his ship. It was fitting that he did so, he told himself; they were owed that by him. Yet when his prayers were finished he was glad that the story-telling, the dancing and the singing had begun on the beach. Men, women, children gathered closely while the stories were tpld, usually by Mata'ora, the old chief. Naish had picked up the meanings of a number of words. The tupaupau were ghostly spirits, and he understood why the children clutched their mothers' hands. The chief in his deep voice went on to tell of Fenau Ro'atua, The Land Ver; Far Away, of Moana Farers, The Unfathomable Sea, and of deeds and voyages and happenings of which Naish had knowledge but which made the children dig their .toes into the smooth sand. • ' • • THE children were sent to bed when the drum was carried to the. beach. A resonance came forth that had the same basic rhythm as the rollers on the reef. But that rapidly changed, was quicker and more insistent, then,, suddenly, a whisper and a murmur. It was as if the night had taken up the beating, or that the sea returned it The older, fatter women panted, they squatted dow and grinn I. Albemarle Morrow, who danced every night since he had recoupea hi* strength, Ulked with them merrily in their language. Alfy, his angular body slick with sweat, had'left the firelight.
