HUBBARD HARDWARE XXX THE others in the crew were Impressed by Bothwick's new attitude and It helped them through the storms. The bond of good will was increased. They sang while they worked on deck and off watch they played checkers in the cabin, or Naish read aloud to.them from his novels, the Bible and Bowditch. Alter Kaui's success as a navigator, Naish held nightly school lor the crew. Alfy proved h* had real aptitude, and his speech cleared. He dropped the aspirate English slum accent, he practiced his handwriting, the shaping of his numerals, and he questioned Bothwick lengthily about his family. He wanted to know how they dressed, ate, talked, even danced and sang. "What are you after, Alfy?' Naish asked him one night as the ship swept along over a moon- marked sea in the higher latitudes. Ally's' eyes were somber on the moonlight "I was pushed into seagoing, but now I'm here I'll make all I can out of it. If I'm able to sail some second mate of some vessel, and I have money in my pocket, they won't—" "Stow it, 1( Naish said. "I follow what you mean. And when you believe you're fit, I'll give you a letter of recommendation that well could take you Into a second mute's, berth." "You're kind, sir," Alfy Slid. "I've got a great deal to lie grateful to you for." ' "Thundcratlonl" N»ith uld. 'This ship has come to run awash with the milk of hum«n kindness. I'd feel better if some buck would up and hit the other on the nose for a change." But th«'friendliness started to disappear In the region of calms oil the Equator. Rutuo* wai tot BY ROBERT CARSB them, Kaui included, a dun and far-off place, and Naish was convinced that in the backs of their minds they considered themselves as homeless, the crew of a ship which had no port, and the Obia had become the Flying Dutchman and they must b« perpetually on the 9e«. , .Fights broke out. In a 9t of desperation created by boredom Bothwick spoke to Alfy in a voice of authority as "a qualified officer." Ally responded by striking Bothwick and Bothwick ^truck back hard. • Naish separated them with a double-armed push that sent them both flat on the deck. "Not. in my ship," he said. "You, sir, go to your cabin And have I any such action again out of you, sailor, you'll stand to be logged severely." Bothwick and Alfy glared at each other for several days afterwards, and Jaeger knocked Larned down for taking Bothwick's side, Morrow threw a kettle of boiling water at Purdy in the galley because Purdy accused him of staying fat on stolen, special rations. But then the North- cast trade came riffling and they spread everything, ran to the North with the studding sails bent on full. • • • NAISH made a habit of entering the ship's daily position on the log board after each noon fix. He ordered bow lookouts stationed and purposely .sailed with- n clear sight of Barbados. Cape Hatteras soon lay on the port hand, and land birds .came (board, were eagerly identified M a thrush, a tanager. Running Ights were burned at night, for now the ship was in the middle of the consul traffic. The lookout loudly binfed the bell as of reported, oft the Chesapeake just n the flush of d«wn, «n East- ^ound Baltimore clipper undei royalt and tkytaUi. Then put Cape May they overhauled a steamer and all hands gathered on deck to gaze at the peculiar sight Vessels like that, Naish remembered, had been built in Baltimore as long as 20 years ago, and one had sailed successfully in transatlantic trade. Fulton's steamer, • the Clermont. had proven-herself on the Hudson. But in Salem when a Scot named Buchan had come around with plans for steamer construction, he'd been laughed at in East India Hall. The same thing.had happened In Boston, New Bedford and New London. Naish shrugged and went below. No steamers for you, he thought A clipper, now, you could sail her if given command. But, no more whalers, and get home, lad, get home. It was, again chill at night Lookouts wore sweaters, caps, and during the day except at washing-down nobody went barefoot Purdy began to cut hair. Beards were trimmed or entirely removed. What shore clothing existed was brought on deck to be aired, cleaned, repaired, then briefly worn. Through Larned, Naish received a request as to the sums the mep should expect at the pay table. • * • NAISH laughed. "Tell them I have no clear idea, old-timer. But I'd be given to believe that the price of oil has risen plenty since we left. What they'll get will be a-plenty, share for share." "And the widdv women, sir?" "They'll fetch their rightful share, too." Naish's eyes were grave. "Once I'm squared away with the vessel's affairs, 1 aim to go and visit each one of them." "And Kaui, sir?" "I'll sec for sure that he drawl all that's his. But who asked you to speak for him?" "Nob'dy," Larned said slowly. "It's just that I've heard promises made aboard ship that wasn't kept on the dock. Kaui is a right good man. He rates his due, and families Is families." "Y6u mean my family?" Naish said sharply. But Larned gave no answer. (T» Be ConUatiml) "I thought he'd get sore when I asked him if the firm could get by without me for a few days—but he's really pleasant about it!"
