found also, that I had run another risk
that of getting shot, for Phillips haviu
heard of my peculiar fix chased up the
river by the crazv man had stood at his
door with his trusty rifle in hand, ready to
fire, aad in his then unsteady condition
of nerves, he would perhaps have been as
likely to shoot me as the fellow who was
chasing me. Jim was fast asleep inside
the tau-namn. and, after a lecture from
the chief, I followed his example.
The second day of what may be termed
our imprisonment, was only a repetition
of the previous one. Abundant and excel
lent food, and the most careful attendance,
Along in the afternoon, awakening from a
slumber, we saw Sidney Bob and Phillips,
paying their assiduous attendances to the
rum-keg, and this time, the latter was un
deniably drank a good deal to my sorrow,
because on his sobriety I based the safety
of we two runaways. Sidney Bob was a
retainer of Phillips a boon companion
and did any and all kinds of menial offices
for him. When I looked out from under
the mosquito-bar, Bob was performing the
part of barber for Phillips that is, so far
rabbin? his head and beard with cocoanut-
oil, scented with sandal-wood, and with the
tweezers, straightening out each seperate
hair. All this time, he and Phillips were
exchanging jokes of the coarsest sort, and
in the coarsest kind of English. Every
few- minutes ther called for and drank off
bumpers of rum, "neat" i. e, without the
admixture of water which was served by
a native, who sat by the keg. He remind
ed me of the comparison of an editor to a
town pump expected to famish others
with drink, but never be dry himself for
the chief did cot permit his people to drink
All that night, and all through the next
day, PbiBips and Sydney Bob boozed away
at the rum. Meanwhile, we were carefully
attended upon by the servants, and all our
wants amply supplied ; but I felt nneasy
I was fearful that Phillips' drunk would
somehow expose us to capture. And so
About cine o'dock. on the evening of
the third day after our absconding from
the vessel, the drunken chief and his equal
ly dranken companion having gone off
somewhere, we were lying quietly in the
darkness and solitude of the great house
far there was cot a soul about, besides
ourselves when all at once, we beard a
whispering. Directly, there was a dicking
of flint asd steel, and then torches were
lighted. Looking cautiously out from un
der the taa-fiamo, we saw a dozen or more
tall, hirsute Fijiimen. armed with war
dubs, and their faces blackened. Coming
to the side of the tan-namu, one who ap
peared to be the leader, said in substance,
in a low tone, "Ton must return with us
to the vessel." Jim Bickford immediately
grasped his sheath-knife, and twore that he
would fight rather than surrender. Bat I
soon convinced him of the utter folly of
attempting to oppose such odds, and said
that by peaceable submission only, would
we escape rough treatment, if not death.
Fortunately, the natives had nat sees Jim's
act, or they probably would have dabbed
us at once. The game was cp and we
must go. Ab we arose in obedience to the
item commands of our eaptori, I ventared
to ask the whereabouts of Phillips, who I
claimed as my protector. I was answered
sternly, "Sicgi ca. von" speak not. Aj
"Who comes there! was shouted in the
well-known stentorian tone3 of the captain.
The answer was satisfactory, for the words
"sa vinaka," from the captain, followed,
and we roanded-to under the stern of the
vessel and got alongside. We two fellows,
naturally enough, hesitated about going on
deck. We could perceive, from where we
lay, even in the dim light, the burly form
of Captain Wallis, standing in the gang
way. After the lapse of a few minutes, he
shouted, "Well, are you two fellows a-going
to come on board, or shall I be obliged to
go down and letch you ?" I told Jim to go
ahead, and represented to him that he,
being the smallest of us two. the captain
would probably be molified by his diminu
tive appearance, and so let up on us. Poor
Jim was unwise enough to taks myadvice,
and clambered over the side. Immediate
ly, the captain seized him by the collar,
and with the end of the main-topsail hal
yards, proceeded to inflict on him a severe
Caggelation, and then sent him forward,
blabbering. "Xow, then, where are you?"
the "old man" shouted to me. "I'm coming
sir," said I, as I slowly crept np the side, ex
pecting to get a heavy dose of punishment.
I wa3 much surprised, however, on reach
ing the deck, to meet with a good deal
different kind of treatment from that met
ed out to Jim. Backing me up against
the rail, the captain, instead of striking
me. merely rubbed his doubled fist in my
face, at the same time, giving me a lecture
in nautical English that would astonish
any one who had never been in a forecas
tle. " Xow go forward," said he, " and do
your duty, like a man, and if I hear a
whimper ont of you, daring the balance of
this voyaje. 111 cot every inch of skin off
your back." Feeling that I had made a
lucky escape. I went forward and turned in.
