In the end. with loud protestations that he could lose like a gentleman, the cook's last money was staked on the game and lost. Whereupon he leaned his head on his hands and wept. Wolf Larsen looked curiously at him, as though about to probe and vivisect him, then changed his mind, as from the foregone conclusion that there was nothing there to probe. Hump, he said to me, elaborately polite, kindly take Mr. Mugridges arm and help him up on deck. He is not feeling very well. And tell Johnson to douse him with a few buckets of salt water, he added, in a lower tone for my ear alone. I left Mr. Mugridge on deck, in the hands of a couple of grinning sailors who had been told off for the purpose. Mr. Mugridge was sleepily spluttering that he was a gentlemans son. But as I descended the companion stairs to clear the table heard him shriek as the first bucket of water struck him. Wolf Larsen was counting his winnings. One hundred and eighty-fivdollars even, he said aloud. Just as I thought. The beggar came aboard without a cent. And what you have won la mine, sir, I said boldly.

"Spencer puts it something like this:' First, a man must act do this is for his own benefit-vt- o to bq moral and good. Next, he must act for the benefit of his children. And third, he must act for the benefit of his race. "And the highest, finest, right conduct, I interjected, is that act which benefits at the same time the man, his children, and his race. I wouldnt stand for that, he replied. Couldnt see the necessity for it, nor the common sense. I cut out the race and the children. Any sacrifice that makes me lose one crawl or squirm is foolish and not only foolish, for it is a wrong against myself and a wicked thing. I must not lose one crawl or squirm if I am to get the most out of the ferment. Nor will the eternal movelessness that is coming to me be made easier or harder by the sacrifices or selfishness of the time when I was yeasty and acrawl. "Then you are a man one could not trust in the least thing where it was possible for a selfish interest to intervene? "Now youre beginning to understand," he said, brightening.

We fell into discussion philosophy, science, evolution, religion. Time passed. Supper was at hand and the table not laid. I became restless and anxious, and when Thomas Mugridge glared down the companionway, sick and angry; of countenance, I prepared to go about my duties. But Wolf Larsen cried out to him: Cooky, youve got to hustle tonight. Im busy with Hump, and you'll do the best you can without him. And again the unprecedented was established.

He treated me vilely, cursed me continually, and heaped his own work upon me. He even ventured to raise his fist to me, but I was becoming animallike myself, and I snarled in his face so terribly that it must have frightened him back. A pair of beasts is vhat we were, penned together and showing our teeth. He was a coward, afraid to strike me because I had not quailed sufficiently in advance; so he chose a new way to intimidate me. There was only one galley knife that, as a knife, amounted to anything. He whetted it up and down all day long. Every odd moment he could find he had the knife and stone out and was whetting away till I could have laughed aloud, it was so very ludicrous. It was also serious, for I learned that he was capable of using it, that under all his cowardice there was a courage of cowardice, like mine, that would impel him to do the very thing his whole nature protested against doing and was afraid of doing. Cookys sharpening his knife for Hump, was being whispered about among the sailors, and some of them twitted him about it. This he took in good part, and was really pleased, nodding his head with direful foreknowledge and mystery, until George Leach, the ventured some erstwhile cabin-boy- , rough pleasantry on the subject. Now It happened that Leach was one of the sailors told off to douse Mugridge after his game of cards with the captain. Leach had evidently done his task with a thoroughness that Mugridge had not forgiven, for words foland evil names involving lowed smirched .ancestries. Mugridge menaced with the knife he was sharpening for me. Leach laughed and hurled more of his Telegraph hill billingsgate, and before either he or I knew what, had happened, his right arm had been ripped open from elbow to wrist by a quick slash of the knife. The cook backed away, a fiendish expression on his face, the knife held before him in a position of defense. But Leach took it quite calmly, though blood was spouting upon the deck as generously as water from a fountain Im goin to get you. Cooky. he said, and Ill get you hard. And I wont be in no hurry about it. Youll be without that knife when I come for you. So saying, he turned and walked quietly forward.

BUSINESS OR Some Reflections on Honesty That May Seem a Little Harsh at the First Reading. If you deliberately plan to sell to another man something which you know is not worth the price you ask, and you depend on his lack of knowledge concerning it to make it possible for you to carry out the deal, you are a thief.

Mighty slimsy cover for your dishonesty, this. If your conscience does not bother you after you have made a deal in which you know that you have wrongfully convinced a man that something you sold him represents what he paid for it, you have a mean, dishonest streak in you. You are taking from that man something to which you are not entitled. That is what the man does who enters your house at night and robs yeu. That he gives you nothing in return and has not asked your permission before he takes it is not an argument on which you may refute the that you are a thief.
