Text Appearing Before Image:
wak is without exception the most out-rageous creature that ploughs the deep in fishyguise. For man-eating qualities he had the sharkskinned a nautical mile. Whinney made a true remark to me one night,—one of the few he ever made. The ocean wasparticularly audible that evening. WATCHFUL WAITING There was something about the unfamiliar appearance of Dr. Traprocksyawl, the Kawa, which filled the beautiful native women with a wonder notunmixed with apprehension.

Itstime you got married an settled down, aint it?When is it to be? It was a triple wedding, the first and probablythe last in the Filbert Islands, and one of the mostcharming affairs I have ever seen. We left theselection of our brides to Baahaabaa and, believeme, he showed himself a master-picker. The 66 THE CRUISE OF THE KA
