"At 'em, men! At 'em! Pull, you sons of the dead, pull!"

Suddenly, in the brief silence that followed the two thunderous reports,
a pistol shot rang out sharply, and I saw
Captain Whidden spin round and fall.

We helped him pile his belongs into his chest . . . . . and gave
him a hand on deck.

"Sign that statement, Lathrop," said Captain Falk

He cut from the melon-rind a roughly shaped model of a ship, and stuck in it,
to represent masts, three slivers of bamboo.
