but encountered a typhoon and was
blown n long dlstonce to the west and
finally wrecked on n coral reef sur
rounding an Island. Of the crew of
eight men Scott alone escaped. It was
nil island about a mile In circumfer
ence, rocky and barren, but having
plenty of fresh water on It.
The castaway had explored this is
land several times, but as the ground
was much cut up and difficult to get
over he had not examined it closely.
Entering the Island from the south
side was a narrow hay, being not over
twenty feet wide, though very deep.
This hay came itent cutting the Island

lie found the opening large enough
to admit a hogshead, and there was
every reason to believe that It once had
been blocked up with stones squared
for the purpose and cemented In.
These stones hud been shaken loose by
some great Jar and had rolled down
Into the bay. The cave was thirty feet
long, twenty feet wide and ten feet
high, dry and airy, and a far better
house than Hoblnson Crusoe had. Now
comt8 the nstoulshlng part of the sto
ry. According to Scott, he found 210
elephant tusks stacked up in the cave,
tntrcthcr with five Jars of gold dust.
Two Jars were emptied of their con
tents that he might use them for food
and water. lie had samples of the
gold and the Ivory on the raft.
I It was n queer story, but with proofs
at hand to back it what could we do
I but believe? Our captain was a
Scotchman, and he took a whole day
to think the matter over and assure
himself that the stuff before him was
actually gold and Ivory. Then he made
Scott n proposition. The matter was
talked over, and It was finally agreed
that Scott should pilot us to the island
and take another Jar of gold dust for
bis share.

of miles In every direction but tho
west, we sighted Scott's Island. He
Identified it os soon as It could be seen
from the deck, and we ran in and
came to anchor for the night within n
mile from the beach. Had the night
not been so dark I believe the captain
would have had n boat down, but as
It was be dared not chance It Such
was the excitement aboard that no
man slept for nn hour, nnd as soon as
daylight had come and the men had
had a bite to cat we set off to secure
the treasure.
We soon found the opening of the
bay and rowed into it. Scott had been
on the island for over a year, and the
hut be occupied and the flagstaff he
erected were In plain sight. At 'the
end of the bay we came to tho cave,
nnd. leaping out of the boat, the cap
tain was first to enter. A moment
later he reappeared, and for tho next
quarter of an hour he cursed as I nev
er heard a seaman before or since.
The cave had been plundered. One
broken tusk bad been left behind, and
there was perhaps an ounce of gold
dust lying on tho spot where Scott had
emptied the Jura. That was proof
enough that he had told a straight
story. When we landed and went up
to the but we soon solved tho prob
lem. Some whaler bad touched thero
for food and water. For wood they
hrid used all the wreck stuff lying
about, and had also partially pulled
the but to pieces. They bad filled
their casks at the spring, and we could
etill see the marks where they had
been rolled down hill to the boats.
Then the Scotchman did n mean
thing by the rescued sailor, ne made
a great ado of how be bad deviated
from his course hnd lost a fortnight's
time and Insisted that Scott divide
with him. I believe be threatened to

Thero was trouble for a few hours,
and then the sailor came to terms, but
not so much us a penny's worth was
ever handed over to the owners or
distributed among the crew. Scttt
was transshipped to a craft bound for
Jaya and that wits the last I ever saw
or beard of him. A year later, how
ever, I met an American runaway
sailor in Batnvla, and be told me that'
his craft, the Itesslp Herrlek of Mar
blehead, put In at the Island, 'remain
ed for two days, and her captain dls
covered the enve and he treasure
while fishing In the bay. He guvo
every man aboard $IOO in cash as n
presont. but kept the dust nnd' the
ivory nnd turned them Into cash at
Singapore. It wnti a rich haul of
treasure, and the captain must bare
been made Independent for life.
