horses and after they crossed the equator the er discovered that there were only three casks of water left He gave orders to make for the nearest land and for three days they for the coast A poor sick soldier who bar left Cadiz with them brought a grillo or ground cricket with him thinking cheerful voice would amuse him or the long dreary voyage But to his great disappointment the little insect was perfectly silent the whole way The fourth morning after they had changed the ship's course the cricket who knew about set up her shrill est note The soldiers at once gave notice to the officers in charge of the vessel and they soon saw high jagged rocks just ahead of them The watch had been careless and the great ship in a few moments would have been dashed to pieces on the ledge if this puny creature had not scented the land and told them of their danger Then they cruised along for some days and the cricket sang for them every night just as as if she had been in far-off Spain till they
