Going home—the blithe birds singing
Soft from every bank and spray.
Paint winds to the uplands winging
Incenae from the new-mown hay;
O'er her brow the first year's roses,
In her heart Love's tirst delight;
Going home as sunset closes—
Good-night, pretty one, good-night!
Going home—the dark clouds frowning.
Naught around but ceaseless din,
Even Pity's accents drowning
In the world of tears and sin;
On her brow no longer gladness.
In her heart Care's hopeless blight:
Going home to shade and sadness—
Good-night, weary one, good-night!
Going home—the stars awaking.
Calm above the city's roar.
Tidings unto worn hearts breaking,
Of repose for evermore;
On her brow retreating sorrow.
In her heart returning light;
Going home till Joy's good-morrow—
Good-night, happy one, good-night!

ular Monthly.
The sea cook looked at what had been
g-iven him.
"The black spot! I thought so," he.
observed. "Where might you have got
the paper? Why, hillo! look here, now;
this ain't lucky! You've gone and cut
this out of a Bible. What fool's cut .1
"Ah, there!" said Morgan—"there.
Wot did I say? No good'll come o' that,
I said."
"Well, you've about fixed it now,
Among you," continued Silver. "You'll
all swing now, I reckon. What soft
headed lubber had a Bible?"
"It was Dick," said one.
"Dick, was it? Then Dick can get to
prayers," said Silver. "He's seen his
slice of luck, has Dick, and you may lav
to that."
But here the long man with the yel
low eyes struck in.
"Belay that talk, John Silver," he
said. "This crew has tipped you the
block spot in full council, as in dooty
bound; just you turn it over, as in dooty
bound, and see what's wrote there.
Then you can talk."
"Thanky, George," replied the eea
cook. "You always was brisk for busi
ness, and has the rules by heart, George,
as I'm pleased to see. Well, what is it,
anyway? Ah! 'Depbsed'—that's it, is
It? Very pretty wrote, to be sure; like
print, I swear. Your hand o' write,
George? Why, you was gettin' quite a
leadin' man in this here crew. You'll
•be cap'n next, I shouldn't wonder. Just
oblige me with that torch again, will
you? This pipe don't draw."
"Come, now," said George, "you don't
fool this crew no more. You're a funny
man, by your account; but you're over
now, and you'll maybe step down oft
(that barrel and help vote."
"I thought you said you knowed the
Tules," returned Silver, contemptuous
ly. "Leastways, if you don't, I do, and
I wait here—and I'm still your cap'n,
mind —till you outs with your griev
ances and I reply; in the meantime your
black spot ain't worth a biscuit. After
that we'll see."
"Oh," replied George, "you don't, be
tiuder no kind of apprehension; we're
all square, we are. First, you've made
ii hash of this cruise—you'll be a bold
man to say no to that. Second, you let
the enemy outo' this here trap for noth
ing'. Why did they want out! I dunno;
but it's pretty plain they wanted it.
Third, you wouldn't let us go at them
upon the march. Oh, we see through
you, John Silver; you want to play
booty, that's what's wrong with you.
And then, fourth, there's this here boy."
"Is that all?" asked Silver,quietly.
"Enough, too," re.torted George.
"We'll all swing and sun dry for your
"Well, now, look here, I'll answer
these four p'ints; one after another I'll
answer Vin. I made a hash o' this
cruise, dad I? Well, now, you all know
what I wanted; and you all know, if
that had been done, that we'd 'a' been
aboard the 'Hispaniola' this night as
ever was, every man of us alive, and fit,
and full of good plum-duff, and the
treasure in the hold of her, bj r thunder!
Well, who crossed me? Who forced my
hand, as with the lawful cap'n? Who
tipped me the black spot the day we
landed and began this dance? Ah, it's
a mighty fine dance —I'm with you
there—and looks mighty like a horn
pipe in a rope's end at Execution Dock
by London town, it does. But who done
it? Why. it was Anderson and Hands,
a.nd you, George Merry! And you're the
last above board of that same meddling
crew; and you have the Davy Jones'
insolence to up and stand for cap'n over
me—you, that sunk the lot of us! By
the powers! but this tops the stiffest
yarn to nothing."
Silver paused, and I could see by the
faces of George and his companions
that these words had not been said in
"That's for number one," cried the
accused, wiping the sweat from his
brow, for he had been talking with a
vehemence that shook the house.
"Why, I grive you my word. I'm sick to
speak to you. You've neither sense nor
memory, and I leave it to fancy where
your mother was that let you come to
sea. Sea! Gentlemen o' fortune! I
reckon tailors is your trade."
"Goon, John." said Morgan. "Speak
up to the others."
"Ah, the others!" returned John.
"They're a nice lot, ain't they? You say
this cruise is bungled! Ah! by gum,
if you could understand how bad it's
bungled, you would see! We're that
near the gibbet that my neck's stiff
with thinking on it. You've seen 'em.

*ein. seamen p'inting- 'em out as i...y
go down with the tide. 'Who's that?'
says one. 'That! Why, that's John Sil
ver. I knowed him well,' says another.
And you can hear the chains a-jangle as
you go about and reach for the other
buoy. Now, that's about where we are,
every mother's son of us, thanks to
him and Hands, and Anderson, and
other ruination fools of you. And if you
want to know about number four, and
that boy, why, shiver my timbers! isn't
he a hostage? Are we going-to waste
a hostage? No, not us; he might
be our last chance, and I shouldn't
wonder. Kill that boy? Not me, mates!
And number three? Ah, well, there's
a deal to say to number three. Maybe
you don't count it nothing to have a real
college doctor come to see you every
day—you, John, with your head broke
—or you, George Merry, that had the
ague shakes upon you not six hours
agone, and has your eyes the color of
lemon peel to this same moment on the
clock? And maybe,perhaps,you didn't
know there was a consort coming,
either? But there is, and not so long
till then; and we'll see who'll be glad to
have a hostage when it comes to that.
And as for number two, and why 1

ing on your knees to me to makeiiont —on
your knees you came, you was that
down-hearted—and you'd have starved
too, if I hadn't—but that's a trifle! yon
look there—that's why!"
And he cast down upon the floor a
paper that I instantly recognized—none
other than the chart on yellow paper,
with three red crosses, that I had found
in the oilcloth at the bottom of the cap
tain's chest. Why the doctor had given
it to him was more than I could fancy.
Hut if it were inexplicable tome the
appearance of the chart was inuredible
to the surviving- mutineers. They
leaped upon it like cats upon a mouse.
It went from hand to hand, one tear

and the cries and the childish laughter
with which they accompanied their ex
amination, you would have thought, not

Silver suddenly sprung up, and sup
porting himself with a hand against
the wall: "Now, I give you warning,
George," he cried. "One more word of
your sauce, and I'll call you down and
fight you. How? Why, how do I know?
You had ought to tell me that—you

with your interference, burn you!
But not 3'ou, you can't; you hain't got
the invention of a cockroach. But civil
you can speak, and shall, George Merry,
you may lay to that."
"That's fair enow," said the old man
"Fair! I reckon so," said the sea-cook.
"You lost the ship; Ifound the treasure.
Who's the better man at that? And
now I resign, by thunder! Elect-whom
you please to foe your cap'n now; I'm
done with it."
"Silver!" they cried. "Barbecue for
ever! Barbecue for cap'n!"
"So that's the toon, is it?" cried the
cook. "George, I reckon you'll have to
wait another turn, friend, and lucky for
you as I'm not a revengeful man. But
that was never my way. And now,
shipmates, this black spot? Tain't
much good now, is it? Dick's crossed
his luck and spoiled b is Bible, and that's
about all."
"It'll do to kiss the book on still, won't
it?" growled Dick, who was evidently
uneasy at the curse he had brought
upon himself.
"A Bible with a bit cut out!" returned
Silver, derisively. "Not it. It don't
bind no more'n a ballad-book."
"Don't it, though?" cried Dick, with
a sort of joy. "Well, I reckon that's
worth having, too."
"Here, .Tim—here's a cur'osity for
you," said Silver; and he tossed, me the
It was a round about the size of a
crown-piece. One side was blank, for
it had been the last leaf; the othercon

these words among the rest, which
struck sharply home upon my mind:
"Without are dogs and murderers."
The printed side had been blackened
with wood-ash, which already began to
come off and soil my fingers; on the
blank side been written with the
same material the one word, "Deposed."

moment; but not a traoeof writingnow

we lay down to sleep, and the outside

him with death if he should prove un
It was long ere I could close an eye,
and Heaven knows I had matter enough
for thought in the man whom I had
slain that afternoon, in my own most
perilous position, and, above all, in the
remarkable game that I saw Silver
now engaged upon—keeping- the muti
neers together with one hand, and
grasping, with the other, after every
means, possible and impossible, to
make his peace and save his miserable
life. He himself slept peacefully, and
snored aloud; yet my heart was sore
for him, wicked as he was, to think on
the dark perils that environed, and the
shameful gibbet that awaited him.
I was wakened—indeed, we were all
wakened, for I could see even the senti
nel shake himself together from where
he had fallen against the doorpost by
a clear, hearty voice hailing us from the
margin of the wood:
"Block-house,ahoy!"it cried. "Here's
the doctor."
And the doctor it was. Although I
was glad to hear the sound, yet my
gladness was not without admixture.
1 remembered with confusion my in
subordinate and stealthy conduct; and
when I saw where it had brought me—
among what companions and surround
ed by what dangers—l felt ashamed to
look him in the face.
lie must have risen in the dark, for
(he day had hardly come; and when I
ran to a loop-hole and looked out I saw
him standing, like Silver once before,
up to the mid-leg in creeping vapor.
"You, doctor! Top o' the morning to
you, sir!" cried Silver, broad awake and
beaming with good nature in a moment.
"Bright, and early, to be sure, and it's
the early bird, as the saying goes, that
gets the rations. George, shake up your
timbers, son, and help Dr. Livesey over
the ship's side. All a-dooin' well, your
patients was—all well and merry."
So he pattered on, standing on the
hill top, with his crutch under his el
bow and one hand upon the side of the
log house—quite the old John in voice,
manner and expression.
"We've quite a surprise for you, too,
sfr," he continued. "We've a little
stranger here- —he! he! A noo boarder
and lodger-, sir, and looking fit and taut
as a fiddle; slep' like a supercargo, he
did, right alongside of John —stem to
stem we was, all night."
Dr. Livesey was by this time across
the stockade and pretty near the cook,
and I could hear the alteration in his
voice as he, said:
"Not Jim?"
"The very same Jim as ever was,"says
The doctor stopped outright, although
he did not speak, and it was some sec
onds before he seemed able to move on.
"Well, well," he said at last, "duty
first and pleasure afterward, as 3 r ou
might have said yourself. Silver. Let
us overhaul these patients of yours."
A moment afterward he hud entered
the block-house, and, with one grin,
nod to me, proceeded with his work
among the sick. He seemed to me un
der no apprehension, though he must
have known that his life among these
treacherous demons depended on a hair,
and he rattled onto his patients as if
he were paying an ordinary profes
sional visit in a quiet English family.
His manner, I suppose, reacted on the
men, for they behaved to him as if
nothing occurred—as if he were still
ship's doctor and they still faithful
hands before the mast.
"You're doing well, my friend," he
•said to the fellow with the bandaged
head, "and if ever any person had a
close shave, it was you; your head must
be as hard as iron. Well, George, how
goes it? You're a pretty color, certain
ly; why, your liver, man, is upside
down. Did you take that medicine?
Did he take that medicine, men?"
"Ay, ay, sir, he took it, sure enough,"
returned Morgan.
"Because, you see, since I am muti

pleasantest way, "I make it a point of

The rogues looked at each other, but
swallowed the home-thrust in silence.
"Dick don't feel well, sir," said one.
"Don't he?" replied the doctor. "Well,
step up here, Dick, and let me see your
tongue. No, 1 should be surprised if
he did; the man's tongue is fit to
frighten the French. Another fever."
"Ah, there," said Morgan, "thatcomed
of sp'iling Bibles."
"That corned—as you call it—of be
ing arrant asses," retorted the doctor,
"and not having sense enough to know
honest air from poison, and the dry
land from a vile, pestiferous slough. I
think it most probable—though, of
course, it's only an opinion—that you'll
all have the deuce to pay before you
get that malaria out of your systems.
Camp in a bog, would you? Silver, I'm
surprised at you. You're less of a fool
than many, take you all round; but you
don't appear to me to have the rudi
ments of a notion of the rules of health.
Well," he added, after he had dosed
them round, and they had taken his
prescriptions, with really laughable hu
mility, more like charity school chil
dren than blood-guilty mutineers and
pirates—"well, that's done for to-day.
And now I should wish to have a talk
with that boy, please."
And he nodded his head in my direc
tion carelessly.
George Merry was at the door, spit
ting anil spluttering over some bad
tasted medicine; but at the first word of
the doctor's proposal lie swung round
with a deep flush and cried: "No!" and
Silver struck the barrel with his open
"Si-lence!" he roared, and looked
about him positively like a lion. "Doc
tor," he went on, in his usual tones,
"I was a-thinking of that, knowing as
how you had a fancy for the boy. We'r;
all humbly grateful for your kindness,
and, as you see, puts faith in you, and
takes the drugs down like that much
grog. And 1 take it I've found a way
at'll suit all. Hawkins, will you give mr
your word of honor as a young gentle
man, for a young gentlemun you are, al
though poor born—your word of honor
not to slip your cable?"
I readily gave the pledge required.
"Then, doctor," said Silver, "you just
step outside o' that stockade, and once
you're there, I'll bring the boy down
on the inside, and I reckon you can yarn
through the spars. Good-day to j'ou,
sir, and all our dooties to the squire and
Cap'n Smollett."
The explosion of disapproval, which
nothing but Silver's black looks had
retrained, broke out immediately the
doctor had left the house. Silver was
roundly accused of playing double—of
trying to make a separate pt-ace for
himself —of sacrificing the interests of
his accomplices and victims, and, in one
word, of the identical, exact thing that
he was doing. It seemed to me so obvi
ous, in this case, that I could not im
agine how he was to turn their anger.
But he was twice the man the rest were,
and his last night's victory had given
him a huge preponderance on Iheir
minds. He called them all the fools
and dolts you can imagine, said it was
necessary I should talk to the doctor,

them if they could afford to break the
treaty the very day they were bound
a-treasure hunting.
"No, by thunder!" he cried, "it's us

comes; and till then I'll gammon that

crutch, with his hand on my shoulder,
leaving them in a disarray, and silenced
by his volubility, rather tb con
"Slow, lad, slow," he said. "They
might round upon us in a twinkle of
an eye, if we were seen to hurry."
Very deliberately, then, did we ad

the stockade, and as soon as we were
within easy speaking distance Silver
