Don Miguel had, with extraordinary self-control, taken his capture with a dignity which had forced everyone aboard, even the fire-eating Master Gadstone, into an unwilling but sincere admiration of him.

Rodney felt he would never grow tired of looking at them, and it amused him to see the efforts of the big, rough sailors to capture some of these delicate, fairy-like creatures and keep them aboard. But in earthenware or pewter vessels they soon lost their beauty and their lives, and the men had to content themselves with making a pet of a giant tortoise and with buying the vivid-feathered parrots, macaws and toucans which, when they went ashore, the natives were only too ready to sell for the smallest possible piece of silver, whatever nation had minted it.

With that clear white skin and hair that was gold as the wheat when it first ripens in the sun, her loveliness had left him breathless ; and yet he remembered guiltily that it was a long time since he had last thought of her or even remembered her existence. It was difficult in the warmth of the Caribbean to recapture the thrill her beauty had given him.
Somehow he could only find himself remembering the expression in her eyes. They had nothing in common with the
