capacity of the Club had been increased, too ; and there were nearly two hundred men housed, from time to time, under its externally inhospitable roofs !

But now he thought he understood everything, and his fear and suspicion of the Master had grown almost into hate. As for the poor young sailor, had he been able to realise it, he might have been afraid too ; but (as they all knew) he could not understand these things. That dreadful blow, which had cut his eye and caused him to always wear a shade over it, had deprived him of most of his intelligence. Yet his day was to come. There was a place even for him in the Master's great network of schemes. ... Poor young fellow ! When the time came for him to learn what his share was, it was to be a tremendous shock to him ! At present it did not seem to bother him. He still continued his vain wanderings at nights, and sometimes they did not see him for days at a stretch ; but they never bothered about him. He was always so quiet that they knew they could leave him quietly to himself-they must be considerate ! If they lost him now, they would never get anyone else to do the task that had been prepared for him to do !
