His Wunt .fingers gradually bem a spoon beside his plat*. Before he spoke, he looked at both Jered and Phoebe. "You went pretty far," he said, "asking this South Sea. Islander to dinner. But I'll talk to your mother, Phoebe." He pushed back his chair., "Ma'am, we can leave the table?" "Yes, why, yes," Mrs. Proctor said, sitting very still. Jered kissed Phoebe before her family In the hall. He thanked Mrs. Proctor arid the Captain for dinner, went down the steps to the street with hij father. He found only a few sentence* for Ml-tether on the way Home\to Derby Street It was very hard to make conversation. But his father's taciturn habit held. They spoke shortly and" of ordinary things. Then, after they had entered the house, hii father squeezed his shoulder and said, "Good to have you home, son. Sleep well. Got me » new housekeeper better than thit old seagull. You'll find your room clean." "It's fine to be home, sir," he said. "But I think I'll sit by the fire and have a grog for a nightcap. You go ahead and pile In." He sat taut-legged on the settle by the Are until he heard the clunk of boots being dropped to the floor. He drank the last of the rum at a gulp. The costume Phoebe wore when she joined him the next morning was all dove gray from bonnet to slippers, and her fur- lined cape was turned up around her ears. "You look like a Puritan," Nalsh told her, "except for the cnpc." "I don't tall that way," she Bald, then blushed. "Tell me, did Knul leave a woman behind him In the l«l«nd»?" BY ROBERT cARse "He's a widower," Naish said. 'His wife died while he was bringing her from Mangaia to his atoll. Kaui is entirely free." "Good," Phoebe said. "Because Salem isn't the town for him, Jerry. The folks of color don't have an easy time here." "I know," Naish said. "I reckoned it hadn't changed." "but what are you going to do with him?" "Keep him as my first mate in any ship I make take." "Your father and my own," she said. "They won't much like the idea of Kaui as your mate." "Then the blazes with them." "Sure, dear heart." She took his hand and tightly gripped it "Sure, I agree." • • * THE wharfinger sat JB his shack with just his nose showing over his pea coat collar and he blinked bleary-eyed when Naish said good morning. The ship was dismal in the dawn. Kaui's dark brown, , bright eyes widened when he saw Phoebe. "The captain is with you?" he said. "Right behind," *he said. "Did you pass a good night?" 'All right," he Mid. "Some boozers tried to come aboard, but I chased them off. There was a big fight on the dock. The watch came and put them in the brig But sit down, please, miss. Drink some tea. It's hot and fresh." 'If you're Jered's friend, Krai," she said rapidly, "you must call me by my first name. It is Phoebe. No more 'Misi' or anything like that." ' Naish was down the ladder ind Kiui itared at him with an openly demanding glance. Nalsh grinned. "Listen to her," he said; "and not to me. She lives the orderi about such-i-matter." 'You see, Kaui," Phoebe said. She had gone to tht pantry rack and taken down mufi. She >oured the, tea. "Now let me lave the key to the galley, Jered, and I'll begin breakfast. There should be enough flour for hot- cakes." "There is," Jered said. He banded her his key ring, then turned to Kaui. "Who tried to come aboard last night?" "Men," Kaui said slowly, "who told me I shouldn't be* mate of this ship." * • » THE dinner was long, meticulously served, with a roast of beef, burgundy and claret and at the end a deep-dish pie. But the conversation was maintained only by Jered, Phoebe and Kaui. The Proctors and Phillip Naish during their rare moments of speech talked among themselves on subjects wholly. unknown to Kaui. Mrs. Proctor gave evidence of her embarrassment when in offering him more beef she mispronounced his name and let slip tier wine goblet After Captain Proctor asked permission for the men to leave the room she ros* at once and went upstairs. "Take Kaui in and play him some music," Jered said to Phoebe. "I'd like to have a bit of time with my father and yours. You don't mind, gentlemen?" "Not at all, sir," Captain Procr tor said stiff-voiced. "Let us go to the library." Jered faced them quietly in front of the library fire, his rage too profound for any expression of violence. They had discussed Kaui with htm at the counting- house today and he had believed he'd won his point, for they'd agreed to keep Kaui on as mate at least until the Obis was discharged. "I've told you," hejaid. "I owe him an enormous and lasting debt. So do you in some share. And he's my friend for life." "Jered, be reasonable," his father said gently. "Sit down and listen to me. We don't deny a Word you say about the Indian fella. That's all understood. But we sail ships out of this port near once a month. H news wa» passed around that we were carrying a yellow-skin as mnte, we'd lose out fast." (le Be Centliw*) PRETZEL DESIGN Pretzels secured their design in the Middle Ages.
