"F « 1 m o u t h Foresider. A bit touched in the noodle, but no harm to nobody and the best you can come by at his work. Captured by the John Bulls ai a boy •nd held in the New York prison hulks. Cir.'t write, can't read, nor will he talk «• a wul 'eeptin' the cook." Naish fingered i harpoon blade •fter it was flniihed. It was is •harp <a the malleable iron could be made. The opposite edge of the weapon was flat, the shaft •bout 30 inches long. Oliphant took a rough oak pole from a pile at his feet and sent it horn* into the socket. That was secured with a small wooden peg which went through both shaft and -pole and kept toe pivct bead in place. The harpooners had come forward to make their choice of weapons. Each picked out three and at once spliced light manila warps to the shafts. They stowed them carefully one above the other in the starboard bowl of their boats. Lamed had lane* shafts on the r r. il now and Naiih stood close to inspect them. The lance shafts . were made of the tame metal as the harpoons, the points of excellent steel and luipasainfly BY ROBERT CARSE sharp. They were about four feet long, oval or heart-shaped, and with the poles attached they reached a good 10 feet. Light manila warps were also spliced onto them so that they could be pulled back and struck again into a whale's flank. Toward dusk, the wind dropped. The sea lay softly undulant and the sails hung slack in the gear. "A good time for it,'' he said to Mr. Cupp. "Put the boats in the water. Give the greenies a real brisk row." "A prime idea," Mr. Cupp said. There was the rap of knuckles on facial bone, the cracking slap of rope ends against flesh and yells of fright before the boats were launched. But Jered Naish no longer minded that He persisted in the resolve that for the present it had to be. He stood on the quarter deck with his long-glass and followed the action of the boats. "A painful sight," Mr. Bothwick murmured at Naish's shoulder. "But one that can't be avoided," Naish said sharply. "Mister, the moon and two stars are apparent. Go fetch the instruments, the slate and my watch. If you're to be a navigator, you must work at it." The blond, thin man gave him a (lance of surprised rage before he' turned away below. So a Bothwick is a Bothwick and he expected you to share his feelings, Naish told himself. Here one man is master! you, and he lives alone and thinks alone and between him and anybody else is that difference. • .•.-.•. THAT night, his .celestial position worked,,Kit private journal entries made from the rough log Bothwick kept, he went to his own cabin and tried to read some of Fielding. He> put the volume on the ounK and gazed. at the daguerreotype of Phoebe that he had, hung on the forward bulkhead. So softly that the mates could not hear, he spoke her name. Then he rose and went over and caressed the picture. Instead of the rather stiff portrait he saw Phoebe as she had been during the last afternoon with him on the beach. Other images came to cluster his mind. He danced a lancers with her at Hamilton Hall. They-rode a sleigh together ! in the winter, and the horse's hooves sent clots of snow in a rapid tattoo against the splashboard. Naish could accept no more of memory. He slipped into a pair of hemp slippers and as he passed through the main cabin the mates looked up at him in silence. That was the way he liked it, h« thought No master could be close to his mates; discipline disappeared when he did. He r d heard tell of captains who from the beginning of a voyage to the end spoke only with their officers about ship's business. A little too stiff, that, yet a good rule to follow. • a • THE greenies of the watch hunkered along the 'midships bulwark. They leaned down to ratch the ardent sweep of the wash along the hull., Only one man, Albemarle Morrow, sensed his presence and turned. "Sir, would you mind a question?" "Not that I know now," Naish said. "Well, sir, when we were out in the boat this afternoon, Mr. Finnie in the midst of his—vexation — allowed that we would never make sailormen. I'm minded, Captain, of an old saying heard on the Canawl: A fel- ler aboard ship without a knife is like a bull without a tail. Would it somehow be possible for*us to buy knives and other gear?" "Tomorrow's Sunday," Naish said. "I'll have the steward open the slops chest and you can buy what you need. Then if there's volunteers enough among you, I'll take out a boat to sail."
