Ah! what ia the matter with Ear nev V
The cold looks'of pride that he wore
Has ?lipped from his face, like a shadow;
He is not himself an/ more.
And yet he will torn from II?B smiling,
To sighing ah mel and alasl
I cannot make ont what's the matter
He is not the lad that he was.
Sometimes he will keep in the shelter
Of clouds, and be sullen alone,
Like the sun when the earth bas offended
His pride, with the light of her own.
Tho weeds have run wild in his garden,
The rose-vincs have dropped from tho
As if he had gathered tho flower of the
And cared for no rose of them all.
And when the gay girls of the village,
Wi Lh red cheeks and milky-?hile brows,
Go by him, he answers their greetings
As though he were calling his cows.
His hair is now left in disorder.
And now with womanship pride,
Sweet-scented, and evenly parted,
And now it is all on one sidel
He used to be stalwart, to work with
The best of them, now has got
To idling-has taken to verses!
To finger-ringsl and to whatnot?
He used to be late at the "meeting,"
But now, ere the solemn bell rings,
He is there in his place, and if Esther
Look down from the choir where abo
That night the low tune of thc anthem
Will run in his head, and ere break
Of the day, ho will be on the hill-tops,
Singing the fishers awake.
I cannot interoret tho meaning
Of all the strange ways that ne has;
Ah! what can have come over Barney?
He is not the lad that he was!
"So lie went back; and it made us
feel queer, I can tell you, to see his
back get smaller, till lie was nothing
but a little black mark, the size of
your finger, on the ice; and then,
worst of all, he went over a hummock
that quite hid him.
"All this while, till nightfall, we
were drifting to the East'ard; whe?
ther it was the current or the wind, I
can't tell, but away we went, jerking
and shaking now and then fit to shake
" 'Cheer up,' says I to the young?
ster; 'there's many a man been adrift
before; it'll make something to tell
the governor when you get home. '
" 'How are we to get home?' says
he, quite mournful-like, almost cry?
ing; that 'home' of his didn't sound
common-like when he said it.
" 'Oh !' says Sands ; all right.
Make trarselves jolly till we're taken
off it; she'll lodge down against a bit
"He pointed out a bit of bay, with
a long piece of floe fast to the main,
right athwart our bows as she was
" 'We'd best get down there,' says
I, 'so as to be ready. '
"So we got down on the nearest
point, as we thought, ready. She
squeezed up the small ice as she
neared it, so that v/e were obliged to
get up higher.
"But we could have reached thc
floe and got to the ship, when the
youngster slipped down, and called
" 'Stevens,' says he, 'I'm gone!'
"And, sure enough, he would have
gone slap down into the open water
if his gun hadn't stuck in a crack.
"He was so badly bruised, for he'd
blipped over a dozen blocks, that he
" 'What's to be done now?'
" 'Done!' says Sands, quite savage.
'Why the devil didn't you keep your
feet, you young fool?' and he picked
him up, and we might almost have
done it, when I sung out,
" 'Hold hard, Sands! she's adrift
. , "She was, too; the floe-piece had
parted from tho main, and was going
on before us, and it swung us round
right into the stream again.
" 'There now,' says he, 'that's your
damned clumsiness has done that job;
we should have done it if it hadn't
been for you, and I could do it now
if I was by myself.'
"And I think he could, for the end
of the piece was still touching the
pack about a quarter of a mile off.
" 'Well,' says I, 'it's no uso growl?
ing; he didn't mean to fall, I sup?
" 'Cause, yon see, I never could
see the good of blaming a fellow when
he'd got to suffer for himself.
" 'All right,' says Sands, 'I was a
little out, but it's all over. Let's
make ourselves comfortable for the
night-it's no use grumbling, Ste?
vens, as you say.'
"So we got the grub and ate it. Of
course, we had no fire, and felt pre?
cious cold as the wind fell. Wc all
went to sleep, and in the morning I
" 'Sands,' says I, 'here's a go.'
" 'We've got into the North cur?
rent,' says he.
"So we had. There was not a bit
of ice within a hundred yards of ns;
we could just see tho blink in the
" 'No getting back to the ship now,
" 'No,' says he; 'ship must come
to ns; we're in for it-it's infernally
cold, though; lot's get round to the
"We took the youngster's arm, for
he could walk a little now, and got
round to wind'ard. Here it was bet?
ter-not quite so cold. We had
breakfast; no fire again, tho', and
sucking a bit of ice is a poor make-up
for a cup of hot coffee, let alone the
M 'Now,' says I, 'look here, boys;
?we're likely to be here for a goodish
bit-we may as well see what we've
Here Ben took the note-book from
thc table, and tnnied over the pages,
muttering, "Lost fore-topsail sh?et
block," "Monk sprained his ankle,"
"Spoke the Mary Anne," "Ice seen,"
"Left ship," "Adrift." "Oh! here,
"You see," said Ben, addressing
me, "I always had to keep the log,
and I used to keep a log of my own
at the same time, till at last it got
such a way with me that I felt as if I
hadn't done my duty if there was no
log kept-got to be a regular thing
with me. Lord, sir ! there's in that bot?
tom cupboard the logs-'diaries' is
printed on the back; I call .'em logs
-of all I've done since I left the sea.
I do it every day after tea, :uid can't
quite be happy witkout.it. I heard
the minister say some poetry about
that kind of thing
'Use dotli breed a habit in a man,'
I think it was.
' 'Now, this here, as I said, is the
log of my voyage in the 'floating
island,' as I called it in joke once to
the missus. She said it was so good
a name that it's always been called so
"Well," said I, "what had you got
when you came to count up?"
"Titree guns-one was rifled-that
was tho boy's-lino, handsome stock
it had, too, very light, tho'; but,
Lord! they let these only sons have
anything. Two hatchets-short han?
dles-the boy hadn't got one. Then
there was three blankets and oui
clothes we'd got ou. There was in
the three bags about twelve pounds
of fat pork, cooked, and about thc
same of biscuit. Sands had some
tea, but Sleepy Sam had got all the
coffee in his bag, so we'd none with
us. I'd got a bit. of lanyard in my
jacket pocket. One large fish-hook
-that was the queerest thing. Sands
says to the boy:
" 'What's that in the corner ol
" 'Oh! it's a hook to catch shark
with. Aunt Nelly gave it me. '
"Sure enough, it was a big barbed
hook, with a cork on the end-he was
a careful boy, that-and a bit of chain
to it, about two feet.
" 'And what did you bring it here
for?' says L 'Expect to catch sharks?
' 'Lord ! how Sauds laughed.
" 'No,' says the boy, 'only the
Captain said you'd most likely shoot
some seals, so I thought that would
stick into them to drag them alone
over the ice.'
"It wasn't such a bad notiou, yoi
see ; so Sands gave over laughing. ]
think that was all we'd got with us
and a poor look-out it was, too
There was food enough, on short al
lowance, to last about five days, Bj
that time, we thought, if we had go
into what they call the Arctic cold
current, we should get down to abou
sixty-one degrees or so, and fall ii
with some whalers. So we made u]
out minds to it, and set about getting
a little to rights. The first point wa
to get a little warm, because the cob
is not only unpleasant, but make
you cat more, if you've got it, am
want more if you haven't.
"The wind still kept South, am
soon we could soe nothing but ou
own bit of ico all round. When w<
got to wind'ard, it felt warm, so w.
took all the things round to w?ud'ar?
and cut a hole in the ice to put then
in, with a small gutter leading iron
it, so as to keep 'em from the wet
Then we cut a sort of platform leve
to stand on, but it was dreadfu
sloppy; the ice was melting as fast a
it could-running down in stream
from the top as the sun shone on it
and making the air quite damp.
"Next morning, we resolved on
search of the 'island,' as we called it
Sands and I, with the two guns, went
the boy stayed on the platform t
"How large Avas it, Stevens, alte
"I should say about three times n
big as a thousand ton vessel-c
course, of a different shape. Here'
the sketch I made of it; it's as nea
as I could remember. You see ther
were two peaks and a bit of floe c
the bottom. It wasn't so big, by
long chalk, as some I've seen, yo
"Lat's see-where was I? Oh,
know. Sands and I went down t
the floe-piece, and says I to Sandi
'That'll break off soon; it can't stan
the wash;' for it was only about si
feet through quite new ice. So w
went round the base of the pyramit
keeping as close in as possible, an
holding on every step, for it wt
sloppy aud slippy as possible.
" 'Hist!' says Sands; 'listen.'
"I listened, and heard so'methin
different to the splash of the waves
more splash and splutter-like.
" 'Seals,' says Sands.
"And it was, too-three fine one
they'd been regularly trapped like u
Their li?les were np six or eight fe
above them; they'd como through tl
holes and lay on thc ledges befoi
the bit broke oft' the main pack ai
canted; so they slid down till th?
stopped where the berg began, in
place like the letter V. They start
at us, and we stared at them ; but \
soon gave over that, for we knock?
'em on the head.
"But the job was what to do wi'
them; so Sands and I went back ai
got the boy's hook; and with the 1
of cord I'd got, we got all three ?
the platform where tho boy was.
"lt got dark by this time, and A
put off skinning them ami cuttii
them up till next dav.
"Next day, we cut 'om and, skinned
" *I say, Stevens,' says th? young?
ster, 'can't yon make some shoes out
of the skin, with the hair downwards
on the soles? They'd have a better
hold on the ice, and you can cut them
into strips crossways, like this?-see;'
and he scratched on the ice with his
"We made them to go aver the
boot, and soon found we cadd walk
about as easily again. The flesh we
put in our 'ice-chest,' as Sands called
it, for he laughed at everything, now
the boy was well.
"We made some oil, too, tho' it
was a tedious job, for we'd only got
three pannikins; however, W3 turned
one into a lamp with .shreds of the
cotton shirt Sands had. Ol course,
we could get a light with cur gun
flints and damp powder; and then
boiled it down half a pint a4 a time,
and made a hole in the ice t> keep it
in; for if the water melted it only
went to the bottom of the iole and
settled, while the oil floated.
"Five days went on, and the bis
I cuit was all gone; so was tire pork.
We had nothing but the seal beef, but
j there was enough of that io last a
"That same evening, I says to
Sands and the boy, 'Look hire, now;
suppose anything passes at right, we
ean't see it, and they can't see us.
Suppose we take watch, an? watch
to look out; for there's no knowing
how long this game's to last. '
" 'Won't last long,' says Sands, 'if
it keeps this breeze from the South
'ard; it's melting fast day and night,
and there'll be nothing left in a week
or two, when we get down into the
sun; not much fear of crossing the
line in this ship. I've left many a
ship,' says he, 'but I never had a ship
leave mo like this seems to be going
"Ho was right enough; tho whole
thing would melt before we could get
off it. It kept rising out of the water
more and more; for the air was
warmer than the water a good deal,
and it melted it fast.
" 'Look here, Stevens ; suppose
anything does see us, they'll give us
as wide a berth as possible; you can't
make 'em hear a mile off, you know.'
" 'No,' said I, 'but we can make
'em see three miles off.'
"So we set to work and made three
lamps out of the skulls of the seals,
and very good lamps they made, too;
a bit of old shirt made the wick, and
then we had to cut a track to each
lamp. We put them as near as wo
could guess to the four points of the
compass, and lighted them next night.
It wa i a pretty sight to see the reflec?
tion on the water; the ice being
white, showed the light beautifully.
Tho oil lasted about six hours in each,
for we didn't have a big wick. The
pannikin lainp we kept where we
slept, and then had to go round to
the others to see them all safe. We
kept tho wiud off with blocks of ice.
