I k a M HB STORYt CMpf. J e r « 4 tak t«k«i leave ol kU «ITCel- rff Pnncbe Proctor, to •all oa w«-re« »or«K* '«> a whaler ora «ker on k« we*. He flnda «r«w, aioat of them broagrat fd acalnat their will, belnK tea hr Bl*»a«* Cvaa, a brBtai rat Man. MR. COTP chose to express his •stonishment in popular Massa- chUMtti Bay profanity. "Cap'n, I h«pp*n to know that you're ww to the whalin' trade. Them In the fo'c'sle »re as green as unout willow, and drunk and sick to boot W« don't start makin' Milors out of them, though, we ncvor will bring the ship home Bert for them to be on deck while w« put the canvas on." Mr. Cupp from what Naish recalled of the man was almost thrw times his age. When he'd been I lad in smock and pantaloons buying Jim Crow gingerbreads at the cent-store, Mr. Cupp had been sailing 'as master.' But h« commanded here, not Eleazar Cupp. The other might be of great help to him, could also cause him harm through stirring up of trouble among the rest of the officers. Cupp could name him to his face or behind his back as a company man, in command solely because o£ his family connections. He hadn't come, though, to his captaincy through the cabin window after a couple of trips as supercargo; he'd worked his way up the hawse pipe, voluntarily and eagerly sailed before the mast lie- lore joining the afterguard. He'd nvitth his seamanship against Mr. Cupp's any day, and first, last and always he was master. "Mister Male," he said, his voice grave and slow, "you'll work the new hands in daylight. Scr,:l aft a hand for the wheel and put a man on the lookout. Then I want that c«nv«s, »nd all a-maln, sir. Handsomely." The fingers of Mr. Cupp's right hand touched the drooping brim of the tarpaulin hat in a gesture that possibly concealed irony. 'Yes, Cap'n," he said. The man who came aft to take the wheel was swarthy, with long hair. Obviously his shoes hurt his feet, for he had taken them off, made fast the laces and slung them around his neck. An Indian, Naish thought "Can you steer, man?" The Indian blinked. "Call me Tatem," he said. "Can you steer?" "Harpooner," the man named Tatem said, "should." He had pushed back the binnacle slide and gazed down and in at the compass card. His hands caught the wheel spokes, released the beckete and brought the wheel 'midships. He stood sober and relaxed, waiting. • • • MR. CUPP brought the other mates aft with a degree of formality after the ship had rounded The Graves. "Cap'n Naish," he said, "meet the lot. I reckon that you know Cap'n Whiting chose us, but let me say that we aim to suit you." "A fine idea," Naish said, suddenly aware that he was still in his shore clothing while these men were dressed for sea and, at his express order, just come to meet them smiling, yet a bit down from aloft. He advanced more stiffly than he liked. "Mr. Charles Wilson, second mate, outa Cutty Hunk," Cupp said. Wilson had the blank, drawn look of a man who had been drunk for weeks. Still he had the carriage, the eyes, the grace of a true sailor, and in this moment he was very sober. "Mr. Keubfn Finnic, third mate," Cupp said. "Marble !!aad- er and ain't ashamed lo say it." Finnic, considerably younger than Wilson, wore a hand-knit while sweater that accentuated ihe power of his arms and shoulders. His approach to Naish ws» a swagger, and Naish noticed that the sweater was splotched with blood. One no doubt who had delighted in knocking the green hands around. Here was ambition, a whole, hot parcel of it, and a temper to match. "Mr. James Both-wick, fourth mate," Cupp said. "Gloucester- found. Uster to be East Indy supercargo. Might be you met him out at Pagoda Anchorage, Cap'n." "Might be," Naish said quietly an he took Bothwick's hand. • • * CUPP, in his own mind, put down both him and the Gloucester lad as "quality," Bothwick's family were famous on Cape Ann and had been members of the original Dorchester Company ol Adventurers which had founded the place. His family and the Proctors knew the Bothwick* well, but at present it would be wrong to mention that. Bothwick was obviously no more than 29 r and thin to the point of emaciation, small-boned, his face delicate, fair. He had torn a fingernail loose while working aloft and blood dripped as he shook hands with Naish. There was no flinching, though, and his voic* was level as he said, "A pleasure to serve with you, sir." Naish gave him a quick nod. "Have Mr. Cupp take care of that finger for you," he said. "I believe, gentlemen, that yo« know how the watches go." "For certain," Finnic said. "Cupp has stuck me till dawn. Then Wilson has hi» crack." "I'll be up at dawn tor my star sweeps," Naish said. "Mr. Wilson, see that you relieve Mr. Finnic at four bells. The course is as she sails now. East-Southeast. I'd like (or you to stream the log, Mr. Cupp." Mr. Cupp's eyes were somber in their regard of Naish. "Cap'n now," he said, "rnebbe if young Bothwick was to do that—" "I'd like it, sir," Bothwick said nuickly. "Shall I fetch the glass and the log?" "Yes, letch them, Mistw," Naish said. (To Be Continued) Cold Peppers ALBUQUERQUE, N. M. <# — Officers said their hot trail turned cold. They followed a trail of chile peppers a half block but failed to find a suspect in the theft of five strings of the red peppers Julian Garcia was going to use to raise the temperature of his food.

Instead of eating the beans, the farmers have planted them and are now waiting for a crop. Kirby Drug Store $750 For Your Old ' ELECTRIC RAZOR on ft new Remington, ScMck.
