Why the doctor had Given ii 10 Iii More i Puiul Uulu la Iio. But if it were inexplicable to me the appearance of the was incredible to the surviving mutineers. They leaped upon it like cats upon a mouse. It went from hand to hand one tear in g it from another and by the oaths and the cries and tire childish laughter with which they accompanied their examination you would have thought not Only they were fingering the very Gold but were at sea with it besides in safety. Said one that s Flint sure enough. J. F., and a score Pielow with a Clove hitch to it. So he a fight said George. But How Are we to get away with it and us co Silver suddenly sprung up.

Well i reckon that s Worth having Here a cur Rosity for said Silver and he tossed me the paper. It was a round about the size of a Crown piece. One Side was Blank it hat been the last Leaf 1he contained a verse or two of these words among the rest which struck sharply Home upon my mind without Are dogs and the printed Side had been blackened with Wood Ash which already began to Cote Oft and soil my fingers on the Wank Side had been written with the same material theone word i have that curiosity beside me at this moment but not a Trace of writing now remains beyond a single scratch such a his to Rora Nail. That was the end of the night s Busi Ness. Soon a drink All round we Lav Down to Steep and the of Silver s vengeance was to put George merry up for Sentinel and threaten Hita with death if he should prove unfaithful. It was Long Ere i could close an Eye. And heaven knows 1 had matter enough for thought in the Man whom i had slain that afternoon in my own most perilous position and. Above All in the remarkable game that i saw Silver now engaged the Muti together with one hand and grasping with the other after Means possible and impossible to make his peace and save his miserable life. He himself slept peacefully and snored aloud yet my heart was sore for him. Wicked As he was to think of the dark perils that in ironed and the Gibbet that awaited him. Chapter xxx. Of parole. I was we we Alt wakened for i could see even the senti Nel shake himself together from where he fallen against the doorpost by a Clear Hearty voice hailing us from the margin of the Wood it cried. Ibe and the doctor it Wal Alt Toufik 1 we glad to hear the bound yet my gladness was not without admixture. 1 remembered with confusion my in subordinate and Stealthy conduct and when i saw where it bad brought among what companions and surrounded by what Felt us tamed to look him in the face. He must have risen in the dark for the had hardly Nome end when 1 ran to a Loop Hole and looked out i him standing like Silver once before up to the mid leg in creeping vapor. You cried Silver Broad awake and beaming with Good nature in a moment. Bright and Early be sure and it s the Early Bird As the saying goes that gets the rations. George shake up your timbers son and help or. Livesey Over the ship s Side. All a Dooin Well your patients w Ell and so he pattered on standing on the Hill top with his Crutch under his Elbow and one band upon the Side of the log the old John in voice manner and expression. We be quite a Surprise for you. Too he continued. We be a Little stranger he a Noo Boarder and lodger sir and looking lit and taut As a fiddle Slop like a super cargo he did right alongside of to Stem we wus All or. Livesey was by this time across the stockade and pret near the Cook and i could hear the alteration in his voice As he said Xot the very same Jim As Ever says Silver. Tic doctor he did not speak and it was some seconds before he seemed Able to move on. Well he said at last duty first and pleasure afterwards As you might have said yourself. Silver. Let us overhaul these patients of a moment afterwards he had entered the Block House and with one Grierr nod to me proceeded with his work among the sick. He seemed to me under no apprehension though he must have known that his life among these treacherous demons depended on. A hair and he rattled on to his patients As if he were paying an Ordinary professional visit in a quiet English family. His manner i suppose reacted on. The men for behaved to him As if nothing if he were still ship s doctor and they still faithful hands before the Mast. You re doing Well my he said to the fellow with the bandaged head and if Ever any person had r close shave it was you your head must be As hard As Iron. Well George How goes it you in a pretty color certainly Why your liver Man is upside Down. Did you take that Medicine did take that Medicine away sir he took it sure returned Morgan. Because you see since i am Muti neers doctor or prison doctor As ire d now i should wish to with that said the doctor. Fer to Call said or. Livesey in his pleasantest Way i make it a Point of Honor not to lose a Man. For King George god bless and the Gal the rogues looked at each other but swallowed the Home thrust in silence. Dick Don t feel Well said one. Don t replied the doctor. Well step up Here Dick and let me see your Tongue. No i should be surprised if he did the Man s Tongue is fit to frighten the French. Another a said Morgan that Omed of up Iling that you Call be ing arrant retorted the doctor and not having sense enough to know honest air from Poison and the dry land from a vile pest Ferous Slouch. I think it most of course it s Only an you la All have the Deuce to pay before you get Liat malaria out of your systems. Camp in a bog would you Silver i m surprised at you. You re less of a fool than Many take you All round but you Don t appear to me to have the Rudi of a notion of the rules of health. He added after he had dosed them round and they had taken his prescriptions with really laughable humility More like Charity school Chil Dren than blood guilty mutineers and that s done for to Day. And now i should wish to have a talk Frith that boy and he nodded his head in my direction carelessly. George merry was at the door Pelt hug and spluttering Over some bad tasted Medicine butt the first word 01 the doctor s proposal he swung round with a deep flush and cried and swore. Silver struck the barrel with his open hand. He roared and looked about him positively like a lion. Doc he on in his usual tones i was a thinking of that knowing As How you had it fancy for the boy. All humbly grateful for your kindness and As you see Faith in you and Takei the drugs Down like that much grog. And i take it i be found n Way mall Ali. Hot a Rev word Konor Man for a Young gentleman you Are a though poor word of Hotoi not to slip your i readily gave the pledge required. ".then, said Silver you step outside o that stockade once you re there i la bring the boy Down on the inside and i rec icon you can yarn through the spars. Good Day to you sir and All our to the Squire and Cap n the explosion of disapproval which nothing but Silver s Bidet looks had restrained broke out immediately the doctor had left the House. Silver was roundly accused of playing trying to make a separate peace for sacrificing the interests of Bis accomplices and victims and in on--1 word of the identical exact thing that he was doing. It seemed to me so obvious in this Case that i could not imagine How he was to turn their anger. But he was twice the Man the rest were and his last night s Victory had Given him a huge preponderance on their minds. He called them All the food and dolts you can imagine said it was necessary i should talk to the doctor. Uttered the Chart in their faces asked them if they could afford to break the treaty the very Day they were bound a treasure Hunting. To by he cried it s us must break the treaty when the time comes and till then i la Gammon that doctor if i have to Ile his boots with and then he bade them get the fire lighted and stalker out upon his Crutch with his hand1 on my shoulder leaving them in a disarray and silenced by his solubility rather than con Vinced. Slow lad he said. They might round upon us in a twinkle of an Eye if we were seen to very deliberately then did we and Vance across the Sand to where the doctor waited us on the other Side of the stockade and As soon As we were within easy speaking distance Silver stopped. You la make a note of Tiss Here also says he and the Boj 11 Tell you How i saved his life and wore de posed for it too and you May Lay to that. Doctor when a Man s steering As near the wind As Chuck Farthing with the.

He imitated the Rolls of tic like n Goldfinch acid a Lark. To train a Sparrow is the task a Eert Iii Bird Lover set herself one year. During the month of april she took a baby and fed it i Ery carefully until it could feed alone. When a week or two older it was placed in a Cage with a Lark a Goldfinch and two canaries. After a few months had elapsed the Sparrow imitated his companions perfectly so that one might easily mistake him for one of them. He mimicked the Rolls of. The Canary Sang with the delicacy and artifice of the Goldfinch and More amusing than All he walked like the Lark. In All this perhaps there was nothing so very astonishing added the Narra Tor of the tale for Many Birds have the Power of imitating the song of other Birds but the Little Sparrow went a step farther and tried to train his to a Cricket s note. In the Spring some crickets were caught and kept in a Little Cage. For a Long time the Cage Hung next to the Canary Bird s Cage but not one of the Birds was pretentious enough to try to imitate the crickets which were after Ward moved next to the Sparrow s Cage. Gie i the astonishment of the household when two Days later the Sparrow s Little voice in imitation of the crickets. Even after the crickets died the Sparrow continued to imitate them varying his tones with the different Little songs the other Birds. So sparrows Are not wholly uninteresting Little Birds after All.
