He tore the nest from the swaying tree.
He flung to the wind its moss and hay.

And she thought; "Is my heart become a

Foraging about, I found a bottle with
gome brandy left, for Hands; and for
myself I routed out some biscuit, some
pickled fruits, a great bunch of raisins,
and a piece of cheese. With these 1
came on deck, put down my own stock
behind the rudder-head, and well out of
the cockswain's reach, went forward
to the water-breaker, and had a good
deep drink of water, and then, and not
till then, gave Hands the brandy.
He must have drunk a gill before he
took the bottle from his mouth.
"Ay," said he, "by thunder, but 1
■wanted some o' that!"
I had sat down already iu my own
corner and began to eat.
"Much hurt?" I asked him.
He grunted, or, rather, I might say he
"If that doctor was aboard," he said,
"I'd be right enough in a couple of turns;
but I don't have 110 manner of luck, you

man with the red cap. "He warn't no

you have come from?"
"Well," said I, "I've come aboard to

and you'll please regard me as your
captain until further notice."
He looked at me sourly enough, but
said nothing. Some of the color had

He watched me keenly and slyly, his

Well, as it seemed to me, there was
eotne sense in this. We struck our bar
gain on the spot. In three minutes I

ure island, with good hopes of turning

Then I lashed the tiller and went be
low to my own chest, where I got a soft
ailk handkerchief of my mother's. With
this, and with my aid, llanos bound up

ahimmfd before it like a bird, the coast
of the island flashing by, and the view
changing every minute. Soon we were
past the high lands and bowling beside
low, sandy country, sparsely dotted
with dwarf pines, and soon we were be
yond that again, and had turned the
corner of the rocky hill that ends the
island on the north.
I was greatly elated with my new
command, and pleased with the bright,
sunshiny weather and these different
prospects of the coast. I had now
plenty of water and good things to eat,
and my conscience, which had smitten
me hard for my desertion, was quieted
by the great conquest I had made. I
should, I think, have had nothing left
me to desire but for the eyes of the cock
swain as they followed me derisively
about the deck, and the odd smile that
appeared continually on his face. It
was a smile that had in it something
both of pain and weakness —a haggard,
old man's smile; but there was, besides
that, a grain of derision, a shadow of
treachery, in his expression as he crafti
ly watched, and watched, and watched
me at my work.
The wind, serving us to a desire, now
hauled into the west. We could run so
much the easier from the northwest
corner of the island to the mouth of the
North inlet. Only, as we had no power
to anchor, and dared 1 not beach her till
the tide had flowed a good deal furt her,
time hung on our bands. The cock
swain told me how to lay the ship to;
after a good many trials I succeeded,
and we both sat in silence, over another
"Cap'n," said he, at length, with that
same uncomfortable smile, "here's mv
old shipmate, O'Brien; s'pose you was
to heave him overboard. 1 ain't par
ti'clar as a rule, and I don't take no
blame for settling his hash; but I don't
reckon him ornamental, now, do you?"
"I'm not strong enough, and I don't
like the job; and there he lies, for me,"
"This here's an unlucky ship—the
'llispaniola,' Jim," he -went on,blinking.
"There's a power of men been killed in
this 'llispaniola'—a o' poor sea

straight, do j'ou take it as a dead man
is dead for good, or do he come alive
"You can kill the body, Mr. Hands,"
but not the spirit; you must know that
already," I replied. "O'Brien, there, is
in another world, and may be watching
"Ah!" says he. "Well, that's unfort'-
nate —appears as if killing parties was a
waste of time. Howsomever, sperrits
don't reckon for much, by what I've
seen. I'll chance it with the sperrits,
Jim. And now, you've spoke up free,
and I'll take it kind if you'd step down
into that there cabin and get me a—
well, a —shiver my timbers! I can't hit
the name on't; well, you get me a bottle
of wine, Jim—this here brandy's too
strong for my head."
Now the cockswain's hesitation
seemed to be unnatural; and as for the
notion of his preferring wine to brandy,
I entirely disbelieved it. The whole
story was a pretext. lie wanted me to
leave the deck —so much was plain; but
with what purpose I could in no way
imagine. His eyes never met mine;
they kept wandering to and fro, up and
down, now with a look to the sky, now
with a flitting glance upon the dead
O'Brien. All the time he kept smiling,
and putting his tongue out in the most
guilty, embarrassed manner, so that a
child could have told that he was bent
on some deception. I was prompt with
my answer, however, for I saw where
my advantage lay; and that with a fel
low so densely stupid I could easily
conceal my suspicions to the end.
"Some wine?" I said. "Far better.
Will you have white or red?"
"Well, I reckon it's about the blessed
same to me, shipmate," he replied; "so
it's strong, and plenty of it, what's the
"All right," I answered. "I'll bring
you port, Mr. Hands. But I'll have to
dig for it."
With that I scuttled down the com
panion with all the noise I could,
slipped off my shoes, ran quietly along
the sparred gallery, mounted the fore
castle ladder, and popped my head out
of the fore companion. I knew he
would not expect to see me there; yet I
took every precaution possible; and
certainly the worst of my suspicions
proved too true.
He had risen from his position to his
hands and knees; and, though his leg
obviously hurt him pretty sharply
when he moved—for I could he»r him
stifle a groan —yet it was at a good, rat
tling rate that he trailed himself across
the deck. In half a minute he had
reached the port scuppers, and picked
out of a coil of rope a long knife, or
rather a short dirk, discolored to the
hilt with blood. He looked upon it for
a moment, thrusting forth his under
jaw, tried the point upon his hand, and
then, hastily concealing it in the bosom
of his jacket, trundled back again into
his old place against the bulwark.
This was all that I required to know.
Israel could move about; he was now
armed; and if he had been at so much
trouble to get rid of me, it was plain
that I was meant to be the victim.
What he would do afterward —whether
he would try to crawl right across the
island from North inlet to the camp
among the swamps, or ■whether he
would fire Long Tom, trusting that his
own comrades might come first to help
him, was, of course, more than 1 could
Yet I felt sure that I could trust him
in one point, since in that our interests
jumped together, and that was in the
disposition of theschooner. We both de

Hands lay as I had left him, a!l fallen
together in a huddle, and with his eye
lids lowered, as though he were too
weak to bear the light, ne looked up,
however, at my coming, knocked the
neck off the botfle, like a man who had
done the same thing often, and took a
good swig, with his favorite toast of
"here's luck!" Then he lay quiet for a
little, and then, pulling out a stick of
tobacco, begged me to cut him a quid.
"Cut -ne a junk o' that," says he,"for
I haven't no knife, and hardly strength
enough, so be as I had. Ah, Jim, Jim,
I reckon I've missed stays! Cut me a
quid as'll likely be the last, lad; for I'm
for my long home, and no mistake."
"Well," said I, "I'll cut you some to
bacco; but if I was you and thought
myself so badly, I would goto my
prayers, like a Christian man."
"Why?" said he. "Now, you tell me
"Why?" I cried. "You were asking
me just now about the dead. You've
broken your trust; you've lived in sin
and lies and blood; there's a man you
killed lying at your feet this moment;
and you ask me why! For God's mercy,
Mr. Hands, that's why."
I spoke with a little heat, thinkingof
the bloody dirk he had hidden in his
pocket,and designed, in his ill thoughts,
to end me with. He, for his part, took a
great draught of the wine, and spoke
with the most unusual solemnity.
"For 30 year," he said, "I've sailed
the seas, and seen good and bad, better
and worse, fair weather and foul, pro
visions running out, knives going, and
w hat not. Well, now, I tell you, I never
seen good come o' goodness yet. Him
as strikes first is my fancy; dead men

be it. And now, you look here," he add
ed, suddenly changing his tone, "we've
had about enough of this foolery. The
tide's made good enough by now. You
just, take my orders, Cap'n Hawkins, and
we'll sail slap in and be done with it."
All told, we had scarce two miles to
run; but the navigation was delicate,
the entrance to this northern anchor
age was not only narrow and shoal, but
lay east and west, so that the schooner

must be nicely handled to be got in.
1 think I was a good, prompt subaltern,
and 1 am very sure that Hands was an
excellent pilot; for we went about, and
dodged in, shaving the banks, with a
certainty and a neatness that were a
pleasure to behold.
Scarcely had we passed the head be
fore the land closed around us. The
shores of North inlet were as thickly
wooded as those of the southern an
chorage; but the space was longer and
narrower, and more like, what in truth
it was, the estuary of a river. Right be
fore us, at the southern end, we saw
the wreck of a ship in the last stages
of dilapidation. It had been a great
vessel of three masts, but had lain so
long exposed to the injuries of the
weather, that it was hung about with
great webs of dripping sea-weed, and
on the deck of it shore bushes had
taken root, and now flourished thick
with flowers. It was a sad sight, but it
showed us that the anchorage was
"Now," said Hands, "look there;
there's a pet bit for to beach a ship in.
Fine flat sand, never a catspaw, trees all
around of it, and flowers a-blowing
like a garding on that old ship."
"And once beached," I inquired, "how
shall we get her off again?"
"Why, so," he rejilied; "you take a
line ashore there on the other side at
low water; take a turn about one o'
them big pines; bring it back, take a
turn round the capstan, and lie to for
the tide. Come high water, all hands
take a pull upon the line, and off she
comes as sweet as natur'. And now,
boy, you stand by. We're near the bit
now, and she's too much way on her.
Starboard a little so—steady—star
board larboard a little steady —
So he issued his commands, which I
breathlessly obeyed; till, all of a sud
den, he cried: "Now, my hearty, luff!"
And I put the helm hard up, and the
"Hispaniola" swung round rapidly, and
ran stem on for the low-wooded shore.
The excitement of these last man
euvers had somewhat interfered with
the watch I had kept hitherto, sharply
enough, upon the cockswain. Even
then I was still so much interested,
waiting for the ship to touch, that I
had quite forgot the peril that hung
over my head, and stood craning over
the starboard bulwarks and watching
the ripples spreading wide before the
bows. I might have fallen without a
struggle for my life, had not a sudden
disquietude seized upon me, and made
me turn my head. Perhaps I had heard
a creak, or seen his shadow moving
with the tail of my eye; perhaps it was
an instinct like a cat's, but, sure
enough, when I looked round, there v
Hands, already half-way toward mc,
with the dirk in his right hand.
We must both have cried out aloud
when our eyes met; but while mine
was the shrill cry of terror, his was a
roar of fury like a charging bull's. At
the same instant he threw himself for
ward, and 1 leaped sideways toward the
bows. As I did so I left hold of the
tiller, which sprung sharp to leeward;
and I think this saved my life, for it
struck Hands across the chest, and
stopped him, for the moment, dead.
Before be could recover I was safe
out of the corner where he had trapped
me, with all the deck to dodge about.
Just forward of the mainmast 1
topped, drew a pistol from my pocket,
drew a cool aim, though he had already
turned and was once more coming di
rectly after me, and drew the trigger.
The hammer fell, but there followed
neither flash nor sound; the priming
was useless with seawater. 1 cursed
myself for my neglect. Why had not
I, long before, reprinted and reloaded
my only weapon? Then 1 should not
have been, as now, a mere fleeing sheep
before this butcher.
Wounded as he was, it was wonderful
how fast he could move, his grizzled
hair tumbling over his face, and his
face itself as red as a red ensign
with his haste and fury. I bad no
time to try my other pistol, nor, in
deed, much inclination, for I was sure
it was useless. One thing I saw plain
ly; I must not simply retreat before
him, or he would speedily hold me
boxed in the bows, as a moment since
he had so nearly boxed me in the stern.
Once so caught, and nine or ten inches
of the blood-stained dirk would be
my last experience on this side of eter
nity. I placed my palms against the
mainmast, which was of a goodish big
ness, and waited, every nerve upon the

paused, and a moment or two passed in
feints on his part, and corresponding
movements upon mine. It was such a
game as I had often played at home
about the rocks of Black Hill cove;
but never before, you. may be sure,
with such a wildly beating heart as
now. Still, as I say, it was a boy's
game, and I thought I could hold my
own at it against an elderly seaman
with a wounded thigh. Indeed, my
courage had begun to rise so high that
I allowed myself a few dartingthoughts
on what would be the end of the affair;
and while I saw certainly that I could
spin it out for long, I saw no hope «112
any ultimate escape.
Well, while things stood thus, sud
denly the "Hispaniola" struck, stag
gered, ground for an instant in the
sand, and then, swift as a blow, can
tered over to the port side, till the deck
stood at an angle of 45 degrees, and
about a puncheon of water splashed
into the scupper-holes, and lay in a
pool between the deck and bulwark.
