He stood on the after deck and squinted thoughtfully aloft as Jered and his father embraced in silence. Then Phillip Naish mumbled. "Good sailing to you" and was gone. Scale's boy and Beale had already hefted the chest aboard. "If you'd like to make use of the weather, sir," Beale said, "we'd better be under way." "Aye," Jered Naish said. The well-known sensations of sadness and subdued excitement that came with the commencement of every new voyage were gathering in him. "Is Miss Phoebe aboard?" "In the cabin, sir." "Shove off, then. I'll be below with her should you want me." Phoebe sat on the red plush settee in the fore part of the elaborately decorated cabin. She wore a dark woolen cape that gave accent to her pallor. "This is stuffy here," she said whispering. "Can we go on deck?" "When they have the sails set." The cutter had taken the wind . and was running tret, and from 1 the sounds on deck Jered knew that Besle was at the tiller, the boy forward on lookout. He raised Phoebe from the settee, thrust her before him up the companionway. The moonlight shimmered on the huge mainsail that was one of Captain Proctor's particular delights. "How beautiful It could all b«," Phoebt uld. They sat •boulder to ihouldei forward of BY ROBERT CARSE the mast, ns the cutter rolled in the small seaway. He took her hand- "I'll be coming back to you. We'll have our own home, our youngsters Don't you lose hope." The wind made vague what she said in reply, and he didn't dare to a?k her to repeat it. He had never seen Phoebe so sad. so downcast, and he was gccotly troubled. He gazed shoreward bleakly to see that the boat was out through Cat Island Channel and standing well with the Westerly on a broad reach to the South. He tightened his arm around Phoebe. "I love you, love you, love you!" he said. • • • THE cutter was close in under the counter before they were given any attention. Then it came in a guttural shout, a scream. A whole chorus of screams, yells and curses and shouts followed. Men, green and drunken hands who had no desire to go to sea, were being knocked around on the main deck of the Obis. A belaying pin struck bone. A mate's fist, smacked punctuation to the shout, "Lay for'd, you!" Phoebe kept completely,, motionless beside him in the cutter's cockpit. But she said in a harsh voice, "Don't leave 'me, Jered. Take me along. Please." He stared at her, only partly aware that Beale and the boy were fending off the cutter and hanging onto a boat-rope along the ship's side. It was possible, he realized. He could tajte her with him. There were marrying parsons Ih Boston who'd come out and make the splice. But Phoebe shouldn't go aboard this ship. A man was at the taffrail and trying ,to leap across It. Blood was down his twisted, stunned face. His mouth gaped over broken teeth. "I'm no sailor, and they won't let rne leave." Mr Cupp came to strike the man down out of sight. Mr Cupp wore a tarpaulin hat and an almost gentle smile. "Excuse us, Miss and Cap'n." he said. "The feller don't rightly know to what he put his name. Have the ladder ready instanter. sir. and nere's a line [or your chest." • • • TOM BEALE took and made fast the line. He held the bottom rung of the Jacob's ladder while Jered still stared at Phoebe. "You think you can't," she said. '•You'd have me believe it's wrong Cupp's a brute; the crew' will be beaten into being sailors; the quarters aren't correct; I haven't the right clothes. Things like that are holding you back. But you must take me. I tell you so with all my heart." "There's no way," Jered Naish said. "It would be mad to let you come into such a ship." "But you'l! take her out Why?" "Because I'm a sailor and it'« my job and I've given my word." He reached to kiss her, but sh> turned her face away, was stepping backward in the cockpit Then she stopped. She smiled as though at some joke. "Mother would say, amn't I the ninny to carry on so. Of course you have to sail this ship, and I can't to with you. It's a foolish idea that came all of a sudden to me. If other women can wait, I will. Goodby, dear heart. Best of luck. If you get the chance, write me. I'll—I'll be home." Her hands went against his shoulders with exceptional strength to push him toward the ladder. He took the ladder stride by rapid stride and sprang down over the rail to the ship's main deck. "Clear those lubbers, into the fo'c'sle for the time being," he snid furiously to Mr. Cupp. "Send your full afterguard to th« windlass. I'm bound for sea." "That ain't fit style," Mr. Cupp said. "It's mine, though," Jered Naish said. He met the maU'i cye< in a deliberate stare. , (To Be Continued) Best Grade Illinois Coal and Kindling Nut Coal 2 or more toni $10 per ton plus tax B&CCoalCo. 8. niw»j 81 fhone J-Mtt WE'VE GOT IT!
