He ain't of Uie stripe for the rough and tumble top- ! side." j • Alfred had put down the biscuit plate; he poured tea neatly into a ihicK mug. "Sugar, sir," he snid. "or mcrlasses?" "As she goes," Naish said. "Are you a Londoner, too, Alfred?" "So help me, no," Alfred said. "Back of Beacon Hill, that's me. They brung me out from London when I was four, that's why I : . still talk a bit like him." "Get along with you!" Blagccn said. "In here, you answers to an order and that's all. No jib- ber-jabber." He took a stride toward A1- ,; /red, his foot swung back for a , kick, and the boy disappeared. '• "Smart little devil, ain't he, sir?" "I'd 1 reckon just about so," Naish said without inflection. . "Clear the table now. 1 want to use my charts." * t * MR. CUPP sat in meditative , silence in the cabin after breakfast and picked his teeth with the point of his Kheath knife as .; Naish first worked out his star . and lunar observations. "What's your method (or sucb ai this, BY ROBERT CARSE mister?" Naish suddenly asked. "I'm ii dead reckon man, fore an' aft," Mr. Cupp .said. "But you, I understand."

"I have. She was a Snleir ship." ; "Well. then, no need my lellin you all what happened." "You tell me. mister" "Lost the Augustus," Mr. Cupp said, "well up to the Noth'd. Off East P'int on iglooik Island- We was after whale and had a fair amount of ile aboard. But the ice come down and pinched us. Broke our back. No chance to use the boats, no way to get to the island. Sc we stayed on the ice. Quite a few fellers froze and died. Rest o 1 us lived, 10 all counted. 1 When we go' hungry along towards tno end—" Mr. Cupp's murmurous voice rose a note—"We et the dead. None of this here cannibalism like you might ha' heard down to Salem. We" just chipped 'em off as was needed and put the pieces In the stew pot. Worst trouble was get- tin' firewood; had to go hack to the ship for it. Come spring, we met up with Eskimocs and they brung us out." The story of the Augustus wasn't new in many ways; other rhalcrs and sealers, fishermen, crews trying to find the Northwest Passage had been trapped in the Arctic wastes and forced (o practice what shore-going folks called with norror cannibalism. "Let me hear about this ship and how you think she should he handled in the trade." '•\Ve!l. we run her to the South'd like you have her headed now." Mr. Cupp said. "Chance we misht find us some few pods down off the Western Islands." "The Azores, you mean?" "Azores or Cr.;:e Verdt-'s. aye. But the real w.:alin' grounds these '.lore last yenrs hn' all been off on the other side. One 'long- shore on the Chile coast. Another, what they name the offshore, between five degrees and 10 Soulh and 105 to 125 West. N'exl is the 'country grounds,' the Pacific islands, runnin' anywhere out South an' West o' the Sand- v.-ic::es. Then they's the Indi:m Ocean after a man's worked off o' slapan. Mebbc the best is itie ?:or'west Coast on up into ' ; ie liormj; '".e-a.

They took up practically lalf the globe. "So we'll proceed owards the Azores," he said, •and try our luck, then crack on South for Good Hope." "You could or you couldn't." "Mister," Jered Naish said in voice that was slow and low, 'I'm not a man for brutality aboard ship. But Fm a hawse ?ipe sailor and when 1 was in Lhe focsle I took my lumps along with the rest. Since I've sailed master, I've kept m; crews going by good will, good sense and decent food and wages. Not that 1 haven't been forced to deal out a little hot scouse once and again and have my mates knock a drunkard or a sojer on his back." Mr. Cupp grinned, his tobacco- rimed mouth pulled wide. "Well, let me tell ynu that ain't true aboard o' any whaler. H's rougher, tougher by a-plenty, and when you see us tayin' in alongside o 1 a whale you'll understand how m u c h. Them grccnies for'd should be up on deck with a little bclayin' pin music on their skulls to got them to step lively. Learn 'em quick, lenrn 'em thorough, else • ou'U lose boats and men." (To Be Continued) "How about a really big New Year's celebration. Lucille? Then 1 can get disgusted and keep my resolution!'* "Stop clowning! This is your piecft!"
