THE STORV: In their first encounter with whale," »reen men of the Obis' crew rrew frightened and cause the deaths of F'rst .Mate Eleaza. Cupp and a harpooner. Capt. Jercd Naish blam , himself for not heeding- Cupp's advice to deal roughly with the crew, to Instill discipline. XII .MR. WIL.SON' and Mr. Pinnie had ranged shoulder to shoulder before the cabin table. Thcv regarded Naish with the open contempt WiLson had previously shown him. "What now?" Mr. Wilson said. "Vou're chief officer." Naish «aid. Mr. Finnic's .second and Mr. Bolhwick's third." "But you don't know ,vour pan from a foot about whale," jMr. Finnic said. Hts eyes squinted in a glance that was as malevolent as scornful. "Why don't you put into Bahia or Rio and beach yourself and gel a skipper who's able for the work?" "Don't speak to the master •n!" Mr. Bothv\ick .said passio.'i- alely. "It borders on mutiny." "".pe down, you swab," Mr.' Finnic said. .N'aish stopped liini b.v the inflection of his voice alone. "Mister," he said, " ny knowledge of wha!ing__c(|uals yours of navigation, although you're supposed to know both. The same applies to you, Mr, Wilson. And when ve sight whale, I propose lo lake a boat away my.sclf. 1 shall learn, with or without your help." Naish went on deck. Dov^n in the waist, Oliphaiit aided by Tilcomb was chasing .-Mbemarle Morrov\ from bulwark to bulwark. The pett.v officers were armed with barrel .staves. It was a continuation of whal had gone on before when the haipooners had larruped H IP green horns who had gone batchy in .Mr. Coop's boat .Morrov* had often been the bull of Oliphant's and Titcombs ood-naiured bailing, but, now their blows hurt, and they had hit him hard enough to draw blood through the scat ol his slops trousers. He halted very suddenly on the deck and his pi juliarly shaped head ^^'as bowed and his arm.-) were spread. He resembled a heifer thai had been playued too long b.v 11 ie.'.. .Naish expected him lo bellow, to wave horns and tail. Alorrow instead said calmly, ' "Leave oil. H IP two ol vou. .My pant.^ on't lake more, and ni.v pa' live is youc." •'Then one lor .voui nuyyin' ' Olipluini id. and made the mi-- lakc of imping williin Alor- iovr> rpiuii. .Moriovs kicked him high Ol the Ihigli: hesiiiuillaiio- ou-sl clipped liiiii across llie jugular vulh liie flat of hi^, hand.

Morrow picked up the stave while Tilcomb hit him vi isly over ihe head iwico. He straiglilened, blinking "Have to hit harder than that to make a barrel which'U hold oil, cooper," he said.

Rut liien h« began to run forward Moi- t§m flicial chase bim, he ibrcvi the stave and it caught Titcomb behind the knees. Titcomb sprawled, lay quivering. Morrow went forward at a slow pace. He rolled the cooper over and slapped with the thick-palmed hand. "Hurt me a good bit, countj-yman." be said. "So here's for my right bullock and here's for the left. Mercy was in my mother's milk, else I would rattle your cranium a bit also." "Morrow:" .Jered Naish called fro I the quarter deck. "Come aft!" The fat man obeyed with a falsely ab shed look. A smart rooster, Naish thought. "We lost a harpooner today, as vou well reckon, iVIoirow. In future, I'm taking a boat away and I'll need i a man to heave the iron for me. D' you think you can do as well | w ith the w hale as you hav e w ith j e carpenter and the cooper?" "Let me try the iron, sir," he said, "and I'll drive it home like i a shaft of lightning." I "I'm given to believe you.", Naish said, "Take your gear out'. of the fo'c'sle. You'll live aft." ".And sleep in a dead man's bunk, sir?" Morrows eyes dilated. "That's all right," Naish said, aware that all of the crew on on deck listened. "Diego's wliere he won't mind. Neither should you." Al night and in starlight mostly, Albemarle Morrow practiced hurling the harpoon. Naish accompanied him, and when the man tired took possession of the weapon himself Their larkcts were Ihe dol: ins who had been with the ship for wceKs. » » » .NAISH was lascinalPd by his o\* n first capiuip. but more' plated b.v Morrow's success.' Fiom the resppcttul glances that both TatPm and Kitchen and the two senior mates had begun lo give Morrow, they must have: recognized that the fat man had Ihe skill of a real harpooner. Naish t'lrned his thoughts io. the 1 lat and the crew to man it.; There still existed, he knew, the dct, dislike of him b.v the two; se. ior mates. On the Brazil' Banks, their crews hadn't acted loo badly, and at least hadn I pi'oven iliemselves cowai-ds. So the men had taken pj-etty much the line attitude as their commanders. Th had no use for Purdy, Simpson and Post, often picked ight.-, with them in the; lo'c'sle. ' That limited his choice to the, lot vshc had bcuv cowardl.v vkiiilC' under Mr. Cupp'.s eoinnumd. (To te Continued) ' S.%FE CHRISTMAS Each year at Christmas time, wc hear of muny fires and other accidents caused by carelessness.' Vear after year, we continue to do these same thUiK In the samej w-aj, thinking that nothinf w-ill happen to me or my family, when we couid feel much more secure if we would observe a few aim- pie rules of safety. Twice-a-da.v whole-milk feod- ng has produced lop-quality veal calves that gain two-half pounds per da.v in tests al the University ol Wisconsin. Successful Farming magazine says the lest showed that veal calves fed liberal whole milk grew belter and graded higher than calves on limited milk itaioi%s or milk replacers. Today's column is written primarily for the dairymen, but it seems to me that there are some lessons here for every farmer C. D. .McCJrew. extension dair.v specialist camp up with some liKures Hie other da .v. that sppiii to pruv idc some answers to H IP question ot how to make mone .v in the dairv busines .s. He sa\s that Harold Rubles "''""^ "'i>' P^'- cenl of the cost I of producing milk in Ohio is the , cost of feed. Labor makes up the second largest part of the cost with thirty percent. Dreed, ing and herd replacements make up about five percent of the cost and equipment about the same. The rpmaining ten percent of the cost is divided between beddinu. v ciprinar.v service, and niiscpllanPou< supplies. Il doesn't take much fiiiuiinu lo see where the largest .savinf ;s can be made in the dair.v business. Certainly feed and laboi- offer the best opportunity tor saving. The question is how to go about it. McGrew suggests two ways to reduce feed costs. One is to increase the production of your cows and the other is to shift from more expensive feeds to rheapev feeds. Here are the effects of producing more milk per cow. Cows that produce about 6000 pounds of milk per year use about two thirds of their feed just to keep alive and going. The remaining one-lhird of the feed they eat is used for milk production. Cows that produce around 9000 pounds of milk a year use only about half of the feed they eat for mainte- 1- >ce and can use the rest for milk production. The first 6000 pounds of milk takes about two dollar.s and forty cents worth of feed for each one hundred pounds of milk produced. An additional .3000 pounds of milk takes less than a flollar's .vorth of feed for each extra hundred pounds of milk. The average cow in Ohio produces around 6000 pounds of milk. The average ol all cows on tost under the Dairy Herd Im- provenirni .\s.socintion supervisions is about 0000 pounds of milk pel' vear. ^'ou can cut feed costs by using cheatier feeds, ({oviahagc costs onl.v alimit hall ;is much as ciHiii. ;IIK 1 pasture onl\ about one fourth as inneli .Most Ohio ciiw .s 2et ahoul '.'i^ percent ol I heir fpcd from uiain. •i.'S percent from ha.v and silasp and 20 percPiU from pastiirp Manv aood dairv- men get as muph as 80 to PO percent out from grain. A shift from 60 percent roughage feeding to 80 percent roughage feeding could save twent.v dollars a jear In feed costs for each cow producing 9000 pounds of milk. The lesson, it sppm,« to mp. is that thpre are oftpn places v<. here costs of production can be reduced if we know where to look for them.
