They're all clipper-minded Are ye serious?" 'That I am." M But I'm broke, mon. I neec upwards of $20,000 to put my ship in service." . Jered shifted his weight and looked squarely into Buchan's eyes. "You have nothing to object to about a man's color?" "So there it is," Buchan said softly. "1 thought that you were for certain bound to take command o{ the clipper McKay has built in Boston. But the color of a man's skin is no matter to me Be he yella, white or pink, if he's a sailor I'll hire him." "Then, mister," Jered said, "I'll try to raise your money for you. You shall hear from me by next week's end." Jered and Kaul were at the Proctor's gate and Phoebe was on the doorstep under the brilliance of the fanlight and Kaul stood back to let Jered go ahead; "Come on in, Kaui," she said. "It's too cold here, even for us." "Let us three -speak alone," iJered said when Kaui had joined them in the hall. Then, after the fire was lit, he told them of Ivor Buchan and the steamer and the proposition upon which he and Buchan had agreed. Phoebe sat smoothing the folds of her dress Her hands were held by a peculiar tension and they shook just a bit. "But, Jerry," «he said, "you're a man trained in sail. Kaui, too." "When Kaul and me were (.board of the clipper." Jered said. "Her lack of space got to me. Premium cargo only c*n make tucto a ship pay. And you mimt run her hard to do It. And there's not that Hid if car»n fnr every voynsc 1'tte Eicamut will take what the BY ROBERT CARSE clippers carry and at about the same speed for a good deal less $ cargo ton. I'm for the steamers Buchan convinced me. What I lack is the money to buy in with him." "He's after sailors?" Kaui said. "He's after you as skipper of nte ship," Jered said. "Should yoj prove yourself competent to him, and' if he finds the dollars to put her to sea. The fella is broke." "I have my $2,000 clear from the Obis," Kaui said. "But I don't buy my way. I sail because I'm a sailor." "He'd hire you for no other reason," Jered said. "I can rouse up about $15,000 to splice to your two. Then there's the cargo to think of and we'd sit real hunky in the dory should we have a full half interest of the business." "You haven't forgotten . the Crescent," Phobe said quietly. "Father's determined that you sail her. He has a full consignment of cargo at top prices for China." "1*11 take her out," Jered said. "I owe that much to him and to my father. For certain, too, I greatly hanker to sail her." Phoebe smoothed again the same fold in her dress. "My Aunt Margaret hi Beverly," she said. "mother's maiden sister, left me $23,000 in her will. I inherited it when I came of age. Father has had the use of it. But the money Is mine. If you and Ka'ul would like, Jerry,- you may invest for me In the steamer." Phoebe and Kaui listened to the crack and sputter of the logs the whoomlng of the wind in the himney, then the clash of voices 'rom the library. When Jered came out he was lomber-laced and slow-moving. Trouble?" Phoebe wu up tod n hfe arms. "No," he mid. "Ifi onr. But they think we're stark, /raving unalic They're wrons You'd better oacJt a tuw. Fboebe. I'm. taking you to Boston. Well get married there tomorrow, then sail aboard the Crescent. Our friend, here —" he reached out and tweaked Kaui's ear "—had better haul his gear for New York. He's bound to be a steamer man." • • • THAT dawn the ship was oft Hatteras and the wind blew from the Northeast and at a good 20 knots. But Jered kept the royals on the Crescent. He drove her hard, glorying in the white ivater that splatted aft. The steamer was low to the horizon. She waddled like an old lady with too many parcels and rheumatic legs. Jered's fourth mate brought the ensign to the dip. Out in the steamer's dumpy bridge wing a man waved his arms, then her flag was lowered, hauled aloft. "Kaui's ship," Jered told Phoebe, "over to the larboard and close aboard. We're passing him as though he was moored to the dock." •The poor fellow," Phoebe said. She had her nose pressed to the glass of the port deadlight over the bunk. "He can't help but envy you, Jerry, and regret that you hornswoggled him into taking her." «c 'She rolls," she sails, too." Jered said. "But THAT dawn with Puerto Rico purple above the sea on the easterly horizon there was no wind at all. The land birds had ventured out and sat noisy on the upper yards. Jered walked the quarter deck too vexed to talk with the watch officer. The steamer proceeded at a steady pace. She sounded, the mate said, like a rusty machine- shop gon« berserk. '.'But she's overhauling us," Jered said. "Her ensign is at the dip. Respond In kind, mister." ' Jered went tlowly below into his cabin. He shook Phoebe awake. "There's Knui's ship," hs told her. "We've been passed neal and slick.' "I'm sletpy," Phoebe wJd. "You're i jailor's wife," Jere« rolrt. THE END 32H3TflOH YWJJlM I wait till the last minute to clean my desk—that way 1 l J.
