I ~began to undeistand. The den- e(
tist had drugged me, -carried me to 0
the schooner and sold me for the a]
voyage. The practice called "Shang- b
hai-ing" waa not at all uncommon on is
the western coast in those -years.
Five to ten dollars a man was the IY
usual commission, but captains. h,
whose crews were very shorthanded g(
and could not get men to sign, often h,
paid much more. ti
"What had I better do?" I asked. tI
"Well, boy, they ain't no great 03
choice. You kin jump overboard or.
you kin stay aboard. Overboard is
terrible cold water and cramps,-mot T
likely, and blackfh. Aboard there's ho
cap'n an hard work an mebbe pay an a
mebbe not-cap'ns make their own 1N
terms with Shanghais. Y' see cap'n
will kind o' keep up the idea that you.
come aboard to steal. Not as he e
think any one believes it, but. jest fi
for form's sake like."
I thought the matter over. A sealA .s
ing cruise to Alaska was. not a t
charming prospect, especially with a bI
brutal captain, who would probably Y(
leave me in Alaska after getting the w
utmost service out of me at the seal. c2
On the other hand, the water .is S
bitter cold in the straits of San Juan
de Fuca and my chances of reaching
shore alive would be very small. 01
Not that there was any danger from I
the blackfish alluded to, they are the
meekest of creatures. -
But for the toothache, which had b
survived my adventures and had '
gained strength through adversity, I
should hardly have taken the step I ni
took that night. But the pain made .P
me 'desperate and reckless. So I SC
found a life preserver and in the st
pitch dark night swung a rope over h
the rail and let myself down into'the
water. - -
Nobody noticed, thQugh I feared
the flashesof phosphorescence, where
the water broke, would draw atten- a
tion. But the schooner sped "along, s
leaving a gleaming wake.
I was alone in- the darkness, miles ;
from shore, with a life preserver for h(
a craft, a general idea of direction
for chart and compass, a little hope
in my heart and' a maddening pain eN
i my jaw. wa
The shore had been hidden all da) s
in the haze and smoke of 'forest fires,
so I had no idea how far out I might
be. The wind was blowing from the
northwest, however, when I left the
ship and ought, iff it-so contimnied, to fo
land me in time, dead or alive. some'
where on the Wahington. -shore of .
the straita nean SquinT bay;. -i
The water was idy,'and w~hile my 9
head and shoulders were still camipa. UI
ratively .warm and my arms had not IF
lost their strength all of .me below
the life preserver had lost feeling. B
My sensation was of being only a
head, shoulders and arms perched on
a life preserver.
Every little while a wave broke h
over my head. My arms grew cold
er, and the numbness began to creeptl
over me. But I still paddled along of
as well as I could while the life P'
preserver bobbed over the waved. 21
After a space, which was probably
about an hour and a half and which.
seemed an unusually long night, ~ I
lost consciousness again. - d
How long I drifted I cannot tell,s
b.ut I opened my eyes on a bright sky b
and felt the warmth of the sun do- le
My limbs were still numb and witih
some pain revived.' Then I rose and '
looked about. I .was lying on theM
beach where, hours before, the tide tO
had left'me. .8
On one side were the green waters
of the straits, on the other the stately, of
somber 'woods where one might look el
through shade into deeper shade far of
within. I could hear the sound of bi
runnng water, clearly distinguish- W
able from the wash of the sea, the ill
welcome tinkle of a stream among 82
the rocks under'the trees.P
The salt water which I had swal
lowed, and which had left a light ti
crust on my lips, and the long absti- r
nence and fatigue had made me very rC
thirsty. On I staggered, guided by lt
sound, to the stream. . cc
It seemed to be dodging about meb
and laughing at my4 efforts to find it, e~
for my senses were dull with expos- cc
ure and weariness, and the woodlanid ~
echoes shifted the sound as I moyed, D!
but at last I Treached it and" wash
There were trout in the clear wa- a]
ters, but I had no means of catching ce
them or bildipg a fire to cook them. '
No more could -I catch any of the
wild fo'wl that swam invitingly neard
shore in the straits. But I managed a
to kill a squirrel as he came fr'ompis t~
hole in a stump. and the flesh, didd T
in the sun on a bit of bark laid on the ni
burning sand, was a little better thin 01
. As night approached I stripped the
moss, which grows six inches deep
in huge mats on the ancient trunks,
and piled myself a bed. There I p1
slept wa'rmly and well till b-road day, 0o
when I arose refreshed, though of
fiercely hungry. si
I determnined to push along the st.
hre.; to the eastward,.- where, if 1 is
lived and walked longc enough, 1 as
should doubtless find either white w
settlers or Siwash fishermen.p
The traveling was hard, for the h
sand beach soon gave way to roughd
pebbles, and the pebbles to a steep,
loose, shelving shore. After thgat I
had to travel in the woods through
thick brush and over fallen logs'> 0:
Had I gone a hundred feet farther a~
