H U BBARD HARDWARE Paint Closeout Many Types And Colors i Price Hubbard Hardware «~ BY ROBERT CARSS XXT THE Obis lay even to her keel glistening in the calm, cerulean water, and when the spars were (sent aloft they also glistened in the sun. Captain Jered Naish leanec against the freshly sanded anc ipainted quarter rail and gazec 'up with keen pleasure at Kau ion the main topgallant mast 'Kaui rode a bosun's chair. He •waved gayly and men who ban- idled the halyards on deck hauled shouting in unison to hoist the yard. "A handsome ship, sir," Naish mid. Mr. BothwicJc had just come «p the companionway and Naish .Mw that he wore clean duck "trouMn, a sbirt, i tarpaulin hat •and aandals. Since the last of the rats had been cleaned out, :Mr. Bothwick preferred to live laboard, coming only rarely lashon. "Ye*, captain," h* saM stiff- •voiccd, "sh« k that" i "You're relieved?" Nttfeh Mid. "Men surprised Iban relieved, rtr." "Why?" "To sec the work dene at aB. 1 Naish grunted. "You and I agree right there. But you're the new chief mat*, mister, and In charge of bar keep homeward- bound." "With ttn Indian m second mate, sir?" Naish took time to answer. There was, he told himself, no insult to Kaui intended In the misuse of the word "Indian." That was a common Milonnfin'i term, nnd as far as th« fact could 1 reckoned the atoll folk had o. ,;innlly come out from India. But the seme o( catte, at place was very rtroof ta Bothwkk. Back In Glouceitcr, hit family >"oulrl be quite hippy to know '•pVI risen to the rank of tiiici mat* and jr*i they'd r*gr*t that the mate directly subordinate to him had received his only formal ship instruction in some jackass missionary schooner. There was undoubtedly also in Bothwick's mind a trace of the typical New England belief that the best sailors came from her shore, and after all, wealthy as they might be, and skillful traders, great bankers and philosophers and scholars, no man among the Indian, or the Chinese people either, had anything to do with the invention of modern navigation. That was just about the sole creation of Captain Nathaniel Bowditch of Salem. "Aye," Naisb said quietly, "Kaui will sail as second mate. E've already signed him to the articles. But you know of a bet- :er man?" "No, sir. I've doubted, though, If he'll be able to handl« the crew." "You and I will be responsible or such," Naish said. He let his voice sharpen with anger. "And as to standing watches, IH be on deck with him." "Then how soon do you calculate we'll sail, sir?" "Three days from now. The work will be done tomorrow, but *ve fixed It with Mata'ora to :upply us with fruit and fish. [•he men must go offshore (or the catch, and it has to be smoked and salted. On the last night, too, Mata'ora wants to [Ive a feast for us. I've promised him another cask of prime oil" BOTHWICK hitched at the Dialled Mnnlt belt that held up lit trousers. He set his foot rmly and looked with a straight •tare at Nallh. "An anchor watch ibould be maintained aboard," t* said. 1 "Those joungstcrt clsmbnr around the ship Ilka monkey*. They might tet inul the lamp locKer or the now and set fire to her." "Let be, mister." Naish grinned and smacked Bothwick on the shoulder. "The day before sailing is time enough for watches. You've worked hard. Slack off and begin to enjoy yourself." "That's an order, sir?" Bothwick said. Although he still met Naish's glance, he smiled. "Take it so," Naish said. "Get ashore. Kaui will keep an eye on the rest of the work to be done today." "You trust him greatly," Bothwick said, "and you seem to have no doubt that some of the lads might skip the way Finnic did." "Kaui knows his work," Naish said. "Nor do I worry about the lads. Their pride is up. They want to show the local folks they're real sailormen and to prove it they rig the ship. The entire lot of them, too, will go home a good sight better off than when they left I've increased the cargo lay for all hands." Tm glad, sir," Bothwick said earnestly. "They'll need something to console them off th* Horn." Naish's hands closed to fists. He took a step toward Bothwick. Here brought into the open wai the fear that could disaffect the crew, keep the ship from ever jetting home. Bothwick as chief officer should know better than to express it If the men remembered the Horn too well, :hey'd refuse to sail and the ship would stay off the atoll until her bottom planks ' rotted through and she and her cargo were a lotal loss. "Get ashore," Naish said. 'That's not the kind of talk for he crew to hear, or you to speak. Don't be a chowder-head!" THE women had been cooking on the beach throughout the day since the Rush of false dawn, and he men had built the fires for hem in the pits that held the uckllng pigs, the chickens and he bonito and mackerel. Pil«t of plantains were ready. It wns to be the farewell feait or Ihc crew of the Obis. I've heard most of those jokes he's telling! Why don t you watch these two-—they're really original!"
