and asks to have certalri precautions

re! and overhears plans of treachery on
foot among the crew.
CHAITER Xl.—Plot (laid by Silver,
ship's cook) provides for the strike for

CHAPTER Xll.— Hawkins tells of Sil
ver's treachery to Llvesey. Trelawney and
Capt. Smollett, who hold a council of war.
CHAPTER Xlll.—Mutiny begins to show
In restlessness of men, and captain de
cides to give the men an afternoon ashore.
Jim Hawkins slips off with them, but on
the Island gives them the slip.
OnAt-l&K AiV.-F.ora cover Jim sees
Silver kill one of the honest bands, and
also learns of the murder of another In
another part of the Island and runs from
thd scene.
CHAPTER XV.—Jim meets Ben Gunn, a
marooned sailor w'ho had lived on Island
three years. Report of a cannon is heard.
Both run for boat when they see in the
wood the union jack.

CHAPTER XXl.—Buccaneers attack
stockade, are worsted, leaving five dead
hfblnd. Th«> faithful party loses two, and
Capt. Smollett wounded.
There was no ret u>rn*>f the mutineers
—not so much as another shot out of
the woods. They had "g»t t heir rations
for that day," as the captain put it, and
we had the place to ourselves and a
quiet time to overhaul the wounded and
get dinner. Squire and I cooked out
side in spite of the danger, and even
outside we could hardly tell what we
were at, for the horror of the loud
groans that reached us from the doc
tor's patients.
Out of the eigtot men who had fallen
in the action only three still breathed —
that one of the pirates who had 1 been
shot at the loop-hole; Hunter, and
Capt. Smollett; and of these the first
two were as good as dead; the mutineer,
indeed, died under the doctor's knife,
and Hunter, do what we could, never re
covered consciousness in this world.He
lingered all day, breathing loudly like
the old buccaneer at home in his ap
oplectic fit; but the bones of his chest
had been crushed by the blow, and his
skull fractured in falling, and some
time in the following night, without
sign or sound, he went to his Maker.
As for the captain, his wounds were
grievous, indeed, but not dangerous.
No organ was fatally injured. Ander
son's bail —for it was Job that shot him
first—had broken his shoulder-blade
anil touched the lung, not badly; the

consultation; and whenithey had'talked
to their heart's content, it being then a
little past noon, the doctor took up his
hat and pistols, girt on a cutlass, put
the chart |i| his pocket, and with a
musket over his shoulder, crossed the

briskly through the trees.

bodies lying all around, that I took a
disgust o£ the place that was almost as
strong as fear.
All the time I was washing out the

things from dinner, this disgust and

stronger, till at last, being near a bread

till far on in the next day.
The next thing I laid hold of v-: - a

As for the scheme Iliad it; nr,y head, it
was not a bad one ini itself. It was to
go dow.n the sandy spit that di\ idt s I lie

find the white rock I had observed hist
evening, and ascertain whether it was
there or not that Ben Guun had hidden
his boat; a thing quite wort h doii.g. as
I still believe. But a« I was certain 1
should not be allowed to leave the i»i
closure. my only plan was to take
French leave, and slip out when no
body was watching; and that was so
bad a way of doing it as made the thing
itself wrong. But I was only a boy. and
I had made my mind up.
Well, as things at last fell out. I found
an admirable opportunity. The squire
and Gray were busy helping the captain
with his bandages; the coast was clear;
I .made a bolt for it over the stocVade
and into the thickest of the trees, and
before my absence was observed I was
out of cry of companions.
This was my second folly, far worse
than the first, as T left but two sound
men to guard the house; but. like the
first, it was a help toward saving all of
I took my way straight for the east
coast of the island, for I was determined
to go down the sea side of the spit to
avoid all chance of observation from
the anchorage. It was alreadj
the afternoon, although still waiin d
sunny. As I continued to thread the
tall woods I could hear from far before
me not only the continuous thunder
of the surf, but a certain tossing of
foliage and grinding of boughs which
showed me the sea breeze had set In
higher than usual. Soon cool draughts
of air began to reach me; and a few
steps further I came forth into the open
borders of the grove and saw the se;>
lying blue and sunny to the horizor
and the surf tumbling and tossing its
foam along the beach.
I have never seen the sea quiet round
Treasure island. The sun might blaze
overhead, the air be without a breath,
the surface smooth and blue, but stiil
these great rollers would be running
along all the external coast, thunder
ing and thundering by day and night;
and I scarce believe there is one spot in
the island where a man would be out of
earshot of their noise.
I walked along beside the surf with
great enjoyment, till, thinking I was
ROW got far enough to the south, 1
took the cover of some thick bushes
and crept warily up to the ridge of the
Behind me was the sea, in frout the
anchorage. The sea breeze, as though
it had the'sooner blown itself out by
its unusual violence, was already at an
end; it had been succeeded by light,
variable airs from the south and south
east, carrying great banks of fog; and
the anchorage, under lee of Skeleton
island, lay still and leaden as when
first we entered it. The "Ilispanibla"
in that unbroken mirror was exactly
portrayed from the truck to the water
line, the Jolly Roger hanging from her
Alongside lay one of the gigs, Silver

recognize—while a couple of men were
leaning over the stern bulwarks, one of
them with a red cap—the very rogue
I had seen some hours before stride
kgs upon the palisade. Apparently
they were talking and laughing, though
at that distance —upward of a mile—l
could, of course, hear no word of what
was said. All at once there began the
most horrid, unearthly screaming,
which at first startled me badly, though
I had soon remembered the voice of
Capt. Flint, and even thought 1 could
make out the bird by her bright plum
age as she sat perched upon her mas
ter's wrist.
Soon after the jolly-boat shoved off
and pulled for shore, and the man with
the red cap and his comrade went below
by the cabin companion.
Just about the same time the suu
had gone down behind the Spy-glass,
and as the fog was collecting rapidly
it began to grow dark in earnest. I
saw I must lose no time if I were to find
the boat that evening.
The white rock, visible enough above
the brush, was still some eighth of a
mile further down the spit, and it took
me a goodlsh while to get up with it,
crawling often on all 'fours among the
scrub. Night had almost come when
I laid my hand on its rough sides.
Right below it there was an exceeding
ly small hollow of green turf, hidden
by banks and a thick underwood about
knee-deep, that grew there very plen
tifully; and in the center of the dell,
sure enough, a little tent of goatskins
like what the gypsies carry about with
them in England.
I dropped Into the hollow, lifted Ihe
side nf the tent, and there IVIS FTCR
Guan'a boat—homemade if ever any
thing was homemade; a rude, lop-sided
framework of tough wood, and
stretched upon that a covering of goat
skin, with the hair inside. The thing
was extremely small, even for me, and
I can hardly imagine that it could have
floated with a full-sized man. There
was one thwart set as low as possible, a
kind of stretcher in the bows, and a,
double paddle for propulsion.
I had not then seen a coracle, such
as the ancient Britons made, but! I
have seen once since, and I can give you
no fairer idea of Ben Gunn's boat than
by saying it was like the first and the
worst coracle ever made by man. But
the great advantage if thecoracle itccr
tainly possessed, for it was exceedingly
light and portable.
Well, now that I had found' tho boat,
you would have thought I hod had
enough of truantry for once; butiu the
meantime I another notion,
und become so obstinately fond of it
that I would have carried 1 it out, I be
lieve, in tbe teeth of ('apt. Smollett him
self. This was to slip out undercover
of the night, cut the "Ilispaniola"
adrift, and let her go ashore where she
fancied. I had quite made up my mind
that the mutineers, after their repulse
of the morning, had nothing nearer
their hearts than to up anchor and away
to sea; this, I thought, it would be u
fine thing to prevent, and now that I
had seen how they left their watchmen
unprovided with a boat, 1 thought it
might be done with little risk.
Down I sat to wait for darkness, and
made a hecrty meal of biscuit. It was
a nigbt out of ten thousand for my pur
pose. The fog had now buried all
heaven. As the last rays of daylight
dwindled and disappeared, absolute
blackness settled down on Treasure
island. And when, at last, I shouldered
the coracle, and groped my way stum
bling-ly out of the hollow >\ here I had
supped, there were but two points visi
ble on the whole anchorage.
One was the great fire on shore, by
which the defeated pirates lay carous
ing in the swamp. The other, a mere
blur of lig-ht tipor. the darkness, in
dicated the position of the anchored
ship. She had swunt' round to the ebb
—her bow was now toward me—the
only lights on board were in the cabin;
and what I saw was merely a reflection
on the fog of the strong rays that flowed
from the stern window.
The el>b had already run some time,
and T'had to wade through the long'belt
of swampy sand, where I sunk several
times above the ankle, liefore I came to
the edge of the retreating water, and,
wading a little way in, with some
strength and dexterity set my coracle,
keel downward, on the surface.
The coracle —as 1 had ample reason to
know before I was done with her —was
a very safe boat for a. person of my
height and weight, both buoyant and
clever in a seaway; but she was the
most cross-grained, lop-sided craft to
,manage. Do as you pleased, she always
made more leeway than anything else,
and turning round and round was the
maneuver she was best at. Even Ben
Gunn himself has admitted that she was
"queer to handle till you knew ber
Certainly I did not know her way.
She turned in every direction but one,
the one I was bound to go; the most
part of the time we were broadside on,
and I am very sure I never should have
made the ship at all but for the tide.
By good fortune, paddle as I pleased,
the tide was still sweeping me down;
and there lay the "llispaniola" right in
the fair way, hardly to be missed.
First she loomed before me like a
blot of something yet blacker than
darkness, then her spars and hull be
gan to take shape, and the next mo
ment, as it seemed (for the furjther I
went the brisker grew the current of
the ebb). I was alongside her hawser,
and had laid hold.
The hawser was as taut as a bow
string —so strong she pulled upon her
anchor. All round the hull, in the
blackness, the rippling* current bub
bled and chattered like a little moun
tain stream. One cut with my sea
gully and the "llispaniola" would go
humming down the tide.
So far so good; but it next occurred
to my recollection that a taut hawser,
suddenly cut, is a thing as dangerous
as a kicking horse. Ten to one, if 1
were so foolhardy as to cut the "llis
paniola" from her anchor, I and the
coracle would be knocked clean out of
the water.
This brought me to a full stop, and
if fortune had not again particularly
favored inc, I should have had to aban
don my design. But the light airs
which had begun blowing from the
southeast and south hud hauled round
after nightfall into the southwest. Just
while I was meditating, a puff came,
caught the "llispaniola" and forced hei
up into the current; and, to my great
joy, I felt the hawser slacken in m>
grasp, and the hand by which X held it
dip for a second under water.
With that I made my mind up, took
out my gully, opened it with my teeth,
and cut one strand after another, till
the vessel swung by two. Then I laj
quiet, waiting to sever these lastwheu
the strain should be once more lights
ened by a breath ®f wind.
All this time I had heard the sound
of loud voices from the cabin; but, tc
say truth, my mind had been so en
tirely taken tip with other thoughts
that I had scarcely given car. Now,
however, when I had nothing else to do,
I began to pay more heed.
One I recognized for the cockswain's,
Israel Hands, that had been Flint's
gMnner in former days. The other was
of course, my friend of the red night
cap. Both men were plainly the wors«
of drink, and they were still drink
ing; for, even while I v\as listening
one of them with a drunken cry
the stern window and threw out some
thing, which I divined to be an emptj
bottle. But they were not only tipsy;
it wus plain that they were furiously
angry. Oaths flew like hailstones, and
every now and then there came forth
sueh an explosion us I thought was sure
to end in blows. But each time the
quarrel passed off, and the voices grum
bled lower for awhile, until the next
crisis came, and, in turn, passed away
without result.
On shore, I could see the glow of the
great campfire burning warmly through
tlie shore-side trees. Some one was
singing, u dull old droning sailor's song,
with a droop and a quaver at the end of
every verse, and seemingly no end to i*
at all but the patience of the singer. I
had heard it on the voyage more than
once, and remembered these words:
"But one man of tlio crew olive,
What put to sea with seventy-live."
And I thought it was a ditty rather
too dolefully appropriate for a company
that had met such cruel losses in the
morning. But, indeed, from what 1
saw, all these buccaneers were as cal
lous us the sea they sailed on.
At last the breeze came; the schooner
sidled and drew nearer in the dark;
I felt the hawser slacken once more,
and with a good, tough effort cut the
last fibers through.
The breeze had but little action on
the coracle, and I was almost instantly
swept against the bows of the "Hit*
paniola." At the same time the schoon
er began to turn upon her heel, spin
ning slowly, end for end, ucross the

since I found I could not push the cor
acle directly off, I now shoved straight
astern. At length I was clear of my
dangerous neighbor; uud just as I gave
the last impulsion, my hands came
across the stern bulwarks. Instantly
I gra> ped it.
Why I should have done bo I can
hardly say. It was at first mere In-
Stinct; but once I had it in my hands
and found it fast, curiosity began to get
the upper hand, and I determined I
should have one look through the cabin

rord. and, when I judged myself near
enough, rose at infinite risk to about
half my height, and thus commanded
the roof and a slice of the interior of the
By this time the schooner and her
little consort were gliding pretty swift
ly through the water; indeed, we had
already fetched up level with the camp
tire. The ship was talking, as sailors
say, loudly, treading the innumerable
ripples with an incessant weltering
splash; and until I got my eyeabovethe
window sill I could not comprehend
why the watchman had taken no alarm.
One glance, however, was sufficient;
end it was only one glance that I durst
take from that unsteady skift. It
showed ine Hands and his companion
locked together in deadly wrestle, each
with a hand upon the other's throat.
I dropped upon the thwart again,
none too soon, fori was near overboard.
I could see nothing for the moment, but
these two furious, encrimsoned faces,
swaying together under the smoky
lamp; and I shut my eyes to let them
grow once more familiar with the
The endless ballad had come to an
end at last, and the whole diminished
company about the campfire had broken
into the chorus I had heard so often:
"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest—
Yo-ho-lio, an J a bottle of rum!
Prlr,k and the devil had done for the rest—
Yo-lio-ho, and a bo-ttle of rum!"
1 was just thinking how busy drink
and the devil were at that very moment
in the cabin of the "Hispaniola," when
I was surprised by a sudden lurch of the
coracle. At the same moment she
yawed sharply and seemed to change
her course. The speed in the meantime
had strangely increased.
I opened my eyes at once. All round
me v\ ere little ripples, combing over
vv ith a sharp, bristling sound and slight
ly phosphorescent. The "Hispaniola"
herself, a few yards in whose wake I
was still being whirled along, seemed
to stagger in her course, and I saw her
spars toss a little against the blaek
nessof the night; nay, as I looked longer,
I made sure she also was wheeling to
the southward.
I glanced over my shoulder, and my
heart jumped against my ribs. There,
right behind me, was the glow of the
campfire. The current had turned at
right angles, sweeping round along
with it the tall schooner and the little
dancing coracle; ever quickening, ever
bubbling higher, ever muttering louder,
it went spinning through the narrows
for the open sea.
Suddenly the schooner in front of me
gave a violent yaw, turning, perhaps,
through 20 degrees; and almost at the
same moment one shout followed an
other from on board; I could hear feet
pounding ou the companion ladder; and
I knew that the two drunkards had at
last been interrupted in their quarrel
and awakened to a sense of their dis

end of the straits, I made sure we must
fall into some bar of raging breakers,
where all my troubles would be ended
speedily, nnd though I could, perhaps,
bear to die, I could not bear to look
upon my fate ns it approached.
So I must have lain for hours, con
tinually beaten to and fro upon the bil
lows, uuw uutl uguiii >\cttcd with flying
sprays, and never ceasing to expect
death at the next plunge. Gradually
weariness grew upon me; a numbness,
an occasional stupor, fell upon my mind
even In the midst of my terrors; until
sleep at last intervened, and in my sea
tossed coracle I lay and dreamed of
home and the old Admiral Benbow.
