"There She Blows!"
Down on Nantucket Island all the male
inhabitants aro seafaring men. They are
whalers, absent for years; at home only for
weeks. But during these brief intervals
from toil these hardy sons of the salt sea
tell over the dangers they have passed; the
hair-breadth escapes, when whales proved •
unruly or the wind blew great guns. The
boys listen with rapt attention and open
ears to these yarns, and inwardly resolve to
go on a whaling voyage when they get to
be men. The whole Island is oily and
nautical... Over all the female inhabitants
hangs a cloud of anxiety. Many a fond,
fearful wife lies wide awake and trembling ,
all night as she hears the wild wind sweep
ing down upon the island as if to carry it
from its mooring, and then off upon the
water lashing the waves into fury. Sher
thinks of the loved one fitr, far away, per
haps wrecked, or his bones bleaching upon
some desert coast. The duties of the cler
gymeh of the island are largely those of
visitation, to giie personal consolation to
these neptunian widows.
It was a sunny afternoon on Nantucket,
when Rev. Mr. Cheerful called upon Mrs
Bobstay. whose husband, au old whaler,
had just sailed for the "spermy city" of
the broad Pacific sea, Mrs. Bobstay was
low down in her mind, and required a
cheering word from the good now. On the
contrary, her son of eight years old, Jack
Bobstay by name, was full of nerve and
hope. The old man had filled his mind
with sea yarns sufficiently thrilling for a
dime utwel,.and the lad nightly dreamed of
spearing whales, reeling ice-planted sails off
the ever-boisterous Cape Horn, of "taking
in," "trying out," etc•.. all of which he had
heard his father talk and swear about.•--
