Those had meaninf to him because their origin was directly traceable to the actual sailing of the ship. Still the meaning of leeway in the manner that it was applied to find .the true course was incomprehensible until he had written out one of Bothwlck's problems completely and substituted the figures on the log board. •Clarity arrived fast.

'Plenty for tonight," he kold himself. "Get some sleep. For a timt, you thought that your skull was going to crack tike an old coconut But tomorrow night you can take the sextant and look at the stars. You will be a navigator, a real mate. Yes, this Mister Mantissa k a Bne fellow . Th« following night was clear if savagely cold, with many stars showing, and he couldn't restrain the desire to handle the sextant. It was the only instrument of its kind in the ship, he realized as n« went down into the main cabin for it Harm this and you put the ship in bad trouble. JAEGER, a gaunt man with a farmer's stoop in his shoulders, was/at the wheel, bored with steering and lost in some distant retrospection. He didn't look up from the binnacle as Kaui passed him going toward the leeward side. Kaui braced against the rail, his knees bent, his feet flat to the deck in the heavy leather boots. A second magnitude star not known to him by name was visible to the northwest. He lifted the sextant and trained It and the star grew blue and large. You're close to it, he thought. But now you must bring the star down to the horizon by moving the thing here that's called the index arm, after that the tangent screw. Don't mind the wind. When the sea rose astern and came flinging at the counter he had Just again recaptured the star. His body answered subconsciously to the roll and compensated 'for the deck hcnve: It was the thick-soled boots that b*tr*y*d Urn. They slipped lion* the moist planks and he had both hands raised to the sextant He fell stiffly outboard, head- down, and before the water took bim he had time for no more than a grunting shout He thought that he would die at once in the water. It compressed bis body within a cold that went to the marrow. But be clung to the sextant, and as he pushed to the surface he did his best to keep it up and out in the air. His boots filled; his clothing dragged him down, and with the second immersion he was awar* that he must get rid of them. He maintained the sextant in his .ight hand while he cleared his snife and slashed and cut and wrenched, shifted it to his left in order to get free of his left boot and the clothing on the left side of his body. A wave surge pounded him as he' once more made the surface, jut now he was able to tread water, restore some of his breathing. Hurry, Jeager. Hurry, Naish. I'm about to go. H« opened his mouth, In sheer reaction to the agony of the cold and screamed. The boat was rowed by thre* men with Alfy in the bow, Seedl* 'midships and Bothwick at the steering sweep. It loomed very white to the dark night and against the blue-black sea. Alfy called out to him and sprang up and threw a line to him. -aowN, 1K , MISS.' WOULP \OU CARE .)

HE hung on while Alfy and then Beedle hauled and Bothwick brought the boat in along the waves down-wind. "Come take the sweep, Alfy," Bothwick said. "Hold her pointed to the wind till I tell you'." Bothwick moved forward in the boat and squatted down beside Knul. He had his pea jacket off. buttoned It over Raul's shoulders. 'By the stars! You saved the Instrument." "Slipped like a dumb-head," Kaui said weakly. "I have n» right to be in a ship as mate." "H a r d 1 y correct," Bothwick said. He had picked up the sextant.
