times had he
sailed on English ships, so that he understood fairly well all that had
passed between Schneider and Schmidt since he had stumbled upon them.

He rose to his feet and stepped into the clearing. Schneider and his
companion started as nervously as though a ghost had risen before them.
Schneider reached for his revolver. Momulla raised his right hand,
palm forward, as a sign of his pacific intentions.

"I am a friend," he said. "I heard you; but do not fear that I will
reveal what you have said. I can help you, and you can help me." He
was addressing Schneider. "You can navigate a ship, but you have no
ship. We have a ship, but no one to navigate it. If you will come

narrated the details of the stroke of good fortune that had come to

notwithstanding his natural suspicion of the sincerity of all men, he
became quite convinced that Schneider was quite as much a rogue as
himself and that the fellow was anxious to leave the island.

These two premises accepted there could be little doubt that Schneider
would prove trustworthy in so far as accepting the command of the
Cowrie was concerned; after that Kai Shang knew that he could find
means to coerce the man into submission to his further wishes.

When Schneider and Schmidt left them and set out in the direction of
their own camp, it was with feelings of far greater relief than they
had experienced in many
