tralia A talk-fcst among the old-timers
of this country Is nlwayB Interesting,
but when thrco or four old sailors,
old In years though joung In feeling
and rich In experiences, get together,
there Is usually n wealth of stories
told that novcr appear in print. Such
was tho case recently when old Cap
tain Cluncy sat down and recalled
some of his trips in tho caily dns
around nnd out the port of Honolulu.
Tlioy were mostly Bhort scraps,
suggested by a word from one of tho
Knmaalnas present, but nil realistic
anu told with tho true story-toller's
zest. Shipping Commissioner Almy
precipitated ono of the narratives by
asking Captain Cluncy If ho had ever
been In Australia.
"Australia! Well, I should say I
tunc. I'our trips I inmlo to Sydney,
and they wero hummers, too, I can
tell you. t icmcmbcrono that fetch
ed me tho best suit of clothes I ever
owned, n cold botllo of wine, nnd
t50 on tho side. It was thirty-odd
j ears ago, and I was a-runnln' tho
old Mary Foster. ! got n cargo of su
gar for tho Colonies, but I didn't
know who owned It or anything
about It. There was six other vos
scls on the same trip, ono of them
a clipper that could whip along with
the best boat that ccr carried all
Fail beforo a hurricane, had a weok
start o' mo when 1 let go the lino nnd
started out of tho harbor of Hono
lulu. Jest as tho boat wns sheerln'
around a fellow hollered lit me from
' Mlct sou fifty dollars tho clipper
bents J ou in to Sydney.'
"Now, I had $200 in my jeans nt
that time, nnd I never could back
down, so I up and says, 'You ought
to glvo mo tvtcnty-to-ono odds, but
I II take your bet.' Then I knew
what was befoio mo. I'll tell you
right now that I lost seventeen
pounds weighing In tho samo suit of
clothes by the time I got to Sydney.
We had rotten weather, too. 1 he old
Mary Foster had all she could do
comotlmcs to hold her own, nnd the
mnto was all tho ttnio growlln' nt me,
saying we never could catch up with
the clipper. Dut I hnto to loso n bet
II I can help It not that I am stin
gy, but I Jest want to win, to show
tnem what I can do. So wo hold her
up to tho wind all tho way down
and was n-mnkln' good time, when
ono day Just at sunset tho lookout
righted n vessol away off to tho hori
zon. I shinned up tho masthead with
p glass, and, sure enough. It was tho
clipper. Then I slid down again and
walked over to tho mnto, and I says,
'Mnto, will you have a wee nip of
whiskey?" And tho mnto wont down
in tho cabin with mo and wo had a
great big drink. Horo wo were even
with the clipper, and she had seven
days' start from Honolulu of us.
'Now,' I Bays to tho mate, 'that clip
per don't bent us to Sydney.' For
we was about 1900 miles oft yet.
"And say, that storm was a growl
er. "Hut when tho pilot boarded us
at Sidney, the first thing I wanted to
know wns If tho clipper had arrived
yet. Tho pilot Bald euro not, and I
took him down In the cabin, too.
Then I made him a present ot two
demijohns of good old Uourbon, the
kind they don't sco In tho Colonies.
" 'Mnn,' says he, 'that's worth n
pound (J!) a demijohn, and I wunt
to pay you for It.'
"Hut I said no. I wanted him to
take It, but I also wanted him to keep
still about my boat arriving with su
gar until I had It sold. Ho said ho'd
Keep still for n century for ono ot
those demijohns. So I hustled In and
sold my sugar, and It was twelvo
days before tho clipper showed up in
side the harbor. I had sold tho su
gar at u higher price, so that the
sum realized was several thousand
dollars more than It otherwise would
"Well, we como back to Honolulu,
and the first man to meet me at the
boat was this fellow I bet with. He
had heard the news some time before
from a schooner that came back from
tho Colonies shortly aftor I arrived.
Jlo grabbed mo, pump-handled me,
and said that ho wanted me to come
nnd drink a bottle of wine with him,
I thought the mnn had either gone
crazy or fallen heir to a million, and
I said, 'No; I won the bet. I am go
ing to do tho buying".' He looked at
me for a minute; then he said:
'Didn't you know that wns my sugar
jnu wero carrying? You clonrcd r.ov-

"Well, wo hud tho bottle of wlno
and then some and ho told mo to
buy the best suit of clothes In Hono
lulu and charge It to him. I did,
nnd I haven't worn It out yet."
