He will | return in April.) - By KD VANDEVENTEH Juan .Fcrflnrloy. Island, in the Pacific oppniite Chiln--Here the hero of our childhood days, Robin- 5on Crusoe, had his great adventure. From a pans in the Yunquc Mountainn he had his lookout where every day he stood gazing wistfully tit the ocean, ever hoping In sec a ship. Every nisht for more than four years he had sicnal fires burning on the anvil-shaped peak, El Yunque. In real life his name was not Robinson Crusoe but Alexander Selkirk. This tÂ«blct in near his lookout: "In memory of Alexander Selkirk, inariner. "A native of Larcojin in the county of Fife, Scotland, who lived on this island in complete solitude for four years and fpur months. He was landed from the Cinque ports galley--96 tons and Ifi guns A.D. 1704, and Was taken off in the Duke.privateer Feb. 12, 170.1. "He died lieutenant of H.M.S. Waymouth A.D. 1723 aged 47 years. Â· ''This tablet is erected near Selkirk's lookout by Commodore Powell and the officers of H.M.S. I Topa/.c A.D. 1868." I Selkirk was a boatswain on the ! pirate ship whose captain became' angry at him and left him on this i lonely island with a musket, some ammunition and a small Â«mount of. food. He was 28 years of age.. This Island is in the Fernandez Rroup owried by Chile. According j to Benjamin Subcrcaseaux, of I Santiago, explorer and geographer, this group is the outcropping of a submarine range--per- liaps part of a continent which sank in the Pacific. Joao Fermidcz, a Spanish pilot, discovered the islands in 1574 by accident, his ship being blown off 'ts course from Callao, Peru, to Valparaiso. He left some goats and nlants, which thrived. Soon this Decarnc a haven for pirates who would stop, get meat and vegeta- bles. So the Spanish government sent over lot of vicious dojs to kill the goats. But the juats_climb- ed to the peaks and kept on multiplying--so did the dogs. And the latter, hungry most of the time, caused Selkirk Â» great deal of trouble. He was wearinj clothing made at grass when rescued. Selkirk was taken to England, and when about 42 years of age he met Daniel Defoe, the author, at a tavern in Scotland. He held the loungers enthralled wjth the stories of his adventures and kept saying: "Oh, my beloved Island; I wish I had never left thee." Next year Defoe's now-famous hook, "Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe," appeared and 1 was a success. Defoe was a real adventurer himself. His life story If ulrrvpst as interesting as his famous book. He had a black servant who escaped from a slave ship, who was very faithful to him and who became a Christian. Defoe called him "Friday." Also the author had a parrot which hÂ« taught to perch on his shoulder and call his name. He had seen shipwrecks, so when he decided to turn Selkirk's lonely exile on Juan Ferandez Into a romantic fiction he wrote of a ship* wreck In the West Indies region with Robinson Crusoe the sole survivor. ^ What was more natural /or a writer who had seen cannibals than to hive them chase "Friday" manufacturer. Bon In London In 1M1, hii name wÂ»i jpÂ»- Hf |Â»ter signed it D. Tot iMI fliiiHy pÂ» n iel Defoe. Contemporary twit writers called him an "illiterate fellow" and. a "vulgar huckittr," but while their names hÂ«v* pÂ»ised into oblivion, his lives on. Styled a mixture of knave and patriot. Defoe wn a valuable aid to King William, whÂ« bequeathed to English statesmanship the union of Scotland and England and Â» Protestant dynasty. Defoe spent so Robinson Crusoe ebuld rescue I the last two years of his. lifr a him? Of course, he remembered hip parrot, which in the hook became a consolation for the hero of this romance. Wrote Book At 5Â» , . Defoe was 59 yeafrs of age when he wrote +he Robinson Crusoe book. He was credited with being the author of 350 books Â»nd pamphlets--not many bearing his name, however. I Called the most colossal liar of the ages, his statements about himself made it impossible for anyone to write an accurate story, of his life. But it is known that he was a newspaper editor, a secret service agent, a merchant and a wanderer, and poor, dying in 1731.
