I UulUltn Ottloe,
By Charles H, Ewart, Dalbeattie, Scotland.
Somo years ago it mattors not
how many whon I was wandering
to and fro on the face of tho earth
and tho waters, I was attachod to au
American whnloship cruising in tho
Okhotsk Soa, and ongagod in what
is technically termed "bay whaling."
In bay whaling it is customary
for tho snips to como to an -anchor
iil some convenient bight or cove,
and send tho boats always pro
visioned for six days out after
whales. When night comes, if the
boats are at a distance from tho ship,
a nice bit of boach is looked for, tho
boats hauled up, and tho crows build
a fire and camp out. Russiau and
Tongooso villages wore sometimes
taken advantage of; but, whilo tho
intoriors of tho Tongooso huts, as
sleeping apartments, woro not to bo
desired, for moro reasons than one,
tho interiors of tho substantial log
houses of tho Russians woro exceed
ingly comfortable, with their cheery
open fires and unlimited doer and
bear sums to crawl unoor ana "sleep
About tho middle of May wo wore
vory much troubled with ice, and in
company with other vessels we wore
jammed in tho pack for three weeks,
moving only as wo drifted with tho
lloe. In time, however, it broke up,
and we managed to run through a
streak of cloar water into Taovisk
Ba'. We camo to an anchor in a
sheltered cove botweon Bowhead
Islaud and the mainland.
The next morning our boats were
provisioned, and wo started
cruiso for whales, two boats always
keeping together. Tho second and
third mates' boats iu one of which
I was kept well out in tho bay, aud
we sailed and rowed about all day
without encountering any of tho
loviathians, which we were confident
were numerous in theso waters.
At night, being at some distanco
from tho ship, wo rowod iu shore,
and hauled tho boats up ou a strip
of sand at the foot of a steep hill
surmounted by a dense mass of birch
and pine trees.
Wo built a big firo of drift wood,
which is always abundant on the
beaches; cooked aud ate our supper;
rigged up tho boatsail for a tent;
rolled ourselves up in our blankots,
and wont to sleep before tho fire.
At two o'clock in tho morning, tho
wholo eastern heaven wasailamo,
and tho fringes of tho pino trees on
the summits of tho hills were tipped
-with scarlet shafts of firo. Thoro
was an ominous "sugh" of wind
among tho branches of tho stunted
birches and pines around us por
tending a coming storm. Wo dis
covered to our dismay that tho bay
was filling with ico, aud our rotreat
to tho ship was cut off.
In loss than half au hour a howl
ing "nor'-eastor" was upon us.
Wo could uot remain whoro wo
were, exposed to tho full fury of tho
blast and tho combers of a tremend
ous sea, which would beat and bat
ter our boats into kindling wood.
Wo launched tho boats in tho face
of a blinding sloot aud tho roll of a
heavy surf, and managed to get out
into open water, beyond tho long
avalanches of briuo which woro
thundering on tho boach. Wo sot
tho sails, reefed, and ran for Tao
visk Kivor, whoro wo arrived and
found tho soa rolling in long whito
crestod billows over tho sandy bar
at tho river's mouth.
Through this wo must go.
Taking down tho sails, wo put tho
boats head aud stern to tho soa and
shot through the hissing, seething
foam into tho river, with no other
mishap thuu a thorough drenching.
Eowing about two inilos up this
river against a strong current, wo
landed at tho Settlement of Taovisk,
and every man, woman, boy aud
girl that could walk, and every dog
in tho village, were down at the
rivor's brink, when we pulled up
opposite tho church.
Tho peoplo gave us a hearty wel
come to thoir town, aud wo gladly
accepted their hospitality. Wo
drow tho boats well up cloar of tho
water, toon out an our provisions,
and scattered oursolves about among
tho community, not more than two
of us being in ono house.
In tho morning wo walked down
to tho rivor mouth, and found tho
Day was lull ot ico. Tuo ship was
fully twonty-fivo miles distaut a
solid mass of ico botwoou hor and
us aud wo woro ico nnd snow
bound at Taovisk for thirteen days.
Among tho motley crowd which
wolcomed us on our arrival, thoro
wore two mou who attracted our
especial attention. Although cloth
ed iu tho garb aud furs of the If us
siaus, thoir faces which woro not
particularly clean showed they
woro not natives of this rigorous
Ono was a Scotchman!
It Is said "the Scotchman is nevor
at homo oxoopt whon ho is abroad,"
und that, go whoro ono will, tho
Scot is to l)o found.
1 did not expect tho lattor saving
to bo verified in this eastern shoro
of Siberia, but tho ubiquitous Scot
was hero all tho name, aud from all
outward appearances ho would have
been nothing tho worm of a "doul;
in the Firth of Clyde."
These men had run away from a
biup mo season Doiore; naa cast iu
their lot wit It tho Kussinu hunters
uud their funiilios during tho long
druttry winter; aud I daresay it wast
not withont somo feeling of satisfac
tion thoy saw onco moro tho faces of
thoir own kind, and hoard their own
A short time after this tho Scot
got ou board ono of tho ships, and
with him wo havo nothing furthor
Tho othor man professed to bo a
nativo of ono of tlio Eastern Statos
of tho American Union; but I can
not vouch for the truth of his state
Judging from appoarancos, I think
tho State would bo benefited by his
absouco; and thoro was reason to bo
liovo tho citizens thoroof had no
particular hankering for his return. v o
Ho was not beautiful to look upon, .. , r" vi
although ho had a fiuo physique' - 1A
lie.wasixiopt iu neiyui, wnjjuuvjy- ""n:t?5
muscular, with tho countonanco of a" '"'
villain. His oyos, which woro dark
nnd piercing, gleamed out from two
caverns iu his head, overhung with
hoavy O3obrows that wout right
across his face. He had au aquiline
nose (ono of our boys called it "an
eaglo boak"); thin, compressed lips; ;
a squaro jaw, indicating bruto cour
age aud determination.
A companion and myself sot our- -(
solves to study this gentloman a lit
tle. We woro curious to know some- ,
thing about him, as ho would not be
drawn iuto any conversation, and.ho 1
nevor by any chance lookod ono
"squaro in tho eye."
Wo got an opportunity, and inter
rogated tho Scot about his couipan- t
ion, but ho evidently did not wish,
or was afraid, to toll all ho know, and
ho could not oven toll his couipan- y
ion's correct name. All that he knew
was that tho fellow's name was Jim,
aud that ho bore the somewhat ques
tionable title of "Scandalous Jim:"
Wo wanted no moro information.
We had hoard of Jim before in
othor quarters. We kuew that he
had been a beachcomber a beach
comber iu the Pacific being about '
tho lowest depth of degradation to
which a white man can descoud
down about tho Society aud Mar
quesas Islands. Wo kuew there were
comfortable quarters aud handcuffs
awaiting him at Tahiti and Nuku
liiwa, and wo know that ho had
tasted the discipline of tho stocks in
more than ono ol tlio boutli Ameri
Having such a delightful record,
we woro coufidont Jim would have
somo little game on hand among
theso unsophisticated "people, and
wo sot oursolves in a quiet way to
find it out.
We had, indeed, nothing olso to
do, as there wore uo books about tho
placo, and auy excursions outside
tho village to study tho face of na
ture woro out of tho question on ac
count of tho depth of tho snow.
Wo soon discovered that "by some
devilish cantrip slicht," Jim had cast
a glamor over a Russian maiden
scarcely out of hor teens.
She was a fair blue-eyed girl, with
a wealth of 3'ollow hair tumbling
over her shapely shoulders, tho bloom
of the rose on hor cheek, and a very
incarnation of vigorous health. She
was an only daughter, and hor par
ents had vory naturally an unbound
ed admiration for this bright aud
vivacious girl, whom they had christ
In every house in tho village we
received a most cordial welcome,
when making our daily round of
visits; but in tho house of Polygaia
we mot with scant courtesy, presum
ably because wo never called with
out finding Jim present to throw a
wet blanket ou anything approach
ing joyousnoss or good fellowship in
the proseuco ol his beloved.
That he meant mischief of some
kind thoro was no possiblo doubt,
and all his actions wont to show that
ho wished us well out of the locality.
Indeed, ho so expressed himself one
day iu a little speech, sprinkled all
over with choice bits of slang and
Wo left and returned to our ship,
and did uot again visit Taovisk for
a couple of months.
On our second trip we found that
the villago priest had discovered tho
relations existing between Jim and
x'oiygaia, and had warned nor par
ents that no possiblo good could
como of mating their child with this
waif and stray from civilization who
had como among thorn.
Tho staid and elderly villagers
looked askanco upou Jim, aud hesi-
tated not to oxpross their anxiety for
his departure, now that ho had au
opportunity of joiuiug somo of the
numerous ships that were iu the bay.
Tho girl's parents finally closed
their door upou him, aud forbade
him to hold any comnmuicatiou with
Every housoholdor iu Taovisk in
structed him to closo thoir door from
the outside, aud intimated iu tho
most oxpressive language (a mixture
of much mutilatod English aud ltus
sian) thoy could comiuaud that thoy
would bo greatly obliged if ho would
not open thorn aguiu.
Jiui disappeared from tlio village,
aud tho inhabitants thereof woro
jubiluut accordingly, nevor dreaming
but that thoy were rid of him for
good and all.
Was thoro ever a scoundrel iu this
world who could not find a confidante
aud au associate as low as himself?
Was there over a criminal who
could uot find a partner iu his crime,
if he were so minded?
Ou one of the ships named the
"Spindrift," lying in tlio bay, was an
officer, who was known among tho
whaling fraternity as "Black Sam."
Uo was so mi mod from having his
head covered with au immense mop
of black hair, aud he had a long
bushy beard of the same nigriuu
