THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

" I saw somebody down below a few minutes ago," drawled a voice, proceeding from a figure seated upon a bollard.
It was Mr Allerton, who, with characteristic contentment with (or indifference to) his lot, had performed the unprecedented feat of signing on for a second voyage in the Orinoco. He wore his usual air of humorous tolerance of the cares of this world, and spoke in the composed and unruffled fashion which stamps the high-caste Englishman all over the globe. His lot on board the Orinoco had been lighter than that of most, for his, companions, finding him apparently impervious to ill-usage and philosophically genial under all circumstances, had agreed to regard him as a species of heavily decayed and slightly demented " dude," and had half - affectionately christened him " Percy "-a term which sums up the typical Englishman for the New - Yorker almost as vividly as "Rosbif" and "Godam" perform that office for the Parisian.
The captain descended from the bridge, walked across the deck, and dispassionately kicked Mr Allerton off the bollard.
" Stand up, you swine, when you speak to me 1" he shouted. "Where did you see anybody?"
Mr Allerton rose slowly and painfully from the scuppers. There are moments when the role of a Democritus is difficult to sustain.
"I'm sorry you did that, captain," he remarked, " because I know you didn't mean it personally.
