While on the question of vagar
ies, I shall tell what befell Thomas
Mugridge In the cabin, and at the|

upon which I have already touch
ed once or twice. The twelve
o'clock dinner was over, one day,
and I bad Just finished putting
the cabin in order, when Wolf
Larsen and Thomas Mugrldge de
scended the companion stairs.
Though the cook had a cubby
hole of a stateroom opening off
from the cabin, In the cabin it
self he bad never dared to linger:
or to be seen, and he flitted to and
fro, once or twice a day, like a
timid spectre,
"So you know how to play!
'Nap,'" Wolf Larsen was saying |
In a pleased sort of voice. "I;
might have guessed an English
man would know. I learned It
myself In English ships."
Thomas Mugrldge was beside
himself, a blithering imbecile, so
pleased was be at chumming thus
with the captain. The little airs
he put on and the painful striv
ing to assume the easy carriage
of a man born to a dignified place
In life would have been sickening
had they not been ludicrous. He
quite ignored my presence, though
I credited him with being simply,
unable to see me. His pale,,
wishy-washy eyes were swimming
like lazy summer seas, though
what blissful visions they beheld
were beyond my Imagination.
'i let the cards, Hump," Wolf
Larsen ordered, as they took seats
at the table. "And bring out the
oigars and the whiskey you'll find
in tn.v berth."
I returned with the articles In
tinus to hear the Cockney hinting
broadly that there was a mystery
about him, that he might be a
gentleman's son gone wrong or
something or other; also, that he

liquor glasseß, but Wolf Larsen

naled with his hands for me to
bring the tumblers. These he
filled two-thirds full with undilut
ed whisky — "a gentleman's
drink," quoth Thomas Mugridge,
—and they clinked their glasses
to the glorious game of "Nap,"
lighted cigars, and fell to shuf
fling and dealing the cards.
They played for money. They
Increased the amounts of the bets.
They drank whisky, they drank It
peat, and I fetched more. I do
not know whether Wolf Larsen
cheated er not, —a thing he was'
thoroughly capable of dulsg,-
but he won steadily. The" ttWk
insde repeated journeys to his
trunk for money. Eiit-h lime he
performed the journey with great
er swagger, but he never brought
more than a few dollars at a time.
He grew maudlin, familiar, could
hardly ace the cards or sit up
right. As a preliminary to an
other journey to his bunk, hs

ously proclaimed and reiterated,
"I got money. 1 got money, I tell
yer, an' I'm a gentleman's son."
Wolf Larsen was unaffected by
the drink, yet he drank glass for
glass, and if anythlug his glasses
were fuller. There was no change
lv him. He did not appear even
amused at the other's antics.
In the end, with loud protesta
tions that he could lose like s gen
tleman, the cook's last money wus
staked on the game and lost.
Whereupon he leaned his head on
his hands and wept. Wolf Larsen
looked curiously at htm. as though
about to probe and vivisect him,
theu changed his mind, as from
the foregone conclusion that there
wus nothing there to probe.

the purpose. Mr. Mugrldge was
