By the following afternoon Dr. Trendon reported his patient as quit cheap nike air max e recovered.
„Starved for water,“ proffered the surgeon. „Tissues fairly dried out. Soaked him up. Fed him broth. Put him to sleep. He’s all right. Just wakes up to eat; then off again like a two-year old. Wonderful constitution.“
„The gentleman wants to know if he can come on nike air max 95 deck, sir,“ saluted an orderly.
„Waked up, eh. Come on, Barnett. Help me boost him on deck.“
The two officers disappeared to return in a moment arm-in-arm with Ralph Slade.
Nearly twenty-four hours‘ rest and skilful nike air max 90 treatment had done wonders. He was still a trifle weak and uncertain, was still a little glad to lean on the arms of his companions, but his eye was bright and alert, and his hollow cheeks mounted a slight colour. This, with the clothes lent him by Barnett, transformed his appearance, and led Captain Parkinson to congratulate himself that Nike Air Max he had not obeyed his first impulse to send the castaway forward with the men.
The officers pressed forward.
„Mighty glad to see you out.“ „Hope you’ve got your pins under you again.“ „Old man, I’m mighty glad we came along.“
The chorus of greeting was hearty enough, but the journalist barely paid the courtesy of acknowledgment. His eye swept the horizon eagerly until it rested on the cloud of volcanic smoke billowing up across the setting sun. A sigh of relief escaped him.
„Where are we?“ he asked Barnett. „I mean since you picked me up. How long ago was that, anyway?“
„Yesterday,“ replied the navigating officer. „We’ve stood off and on, looking for some of our men.“
„Then that’s the same volcano—-“
Barnett laughed softly. „Well, they cheap nike air max trainers aren’t quite holding a caucus of volcanoes down in this country. One like that is eno nike air max sale ugh.“
But Slade brushed the remark aside.
„Head for it!“ he cried excitedly. „We may be in time! There’s a man on that island.“
„A man!“ „Another!“ „Not Billy Edwards?“ „Not some of our boys?“
Slade stared at them bewildered.
„Hold on,“ interposed Dr. Trendon authoritatively. „What’s his name?“ he inquired of the journalist.
„Darrow,“ replied the latter. „Percy Darrow. Do you know him?“
„Who in Kamschatka is Percy Darrow?“ dema nike air max nded Forsythe.
„Why, he’s the assistant.“ It’s a long story—-“
„Of course, it’s a long story. There’s a lot we want to know,“ interrupted Captain Parkinson. „Quartermaster, head for the volcano yonder. Mr. Slade, we want to know where you came from; and why you left the schooner, and who Percy Darrow is. And there’s dinner, so we’ll just adjourn to the messroom and hear what you can tell us. But th Cheap Nike Air Max ere’s one thing we’re all anxious to know; how came you in the dory which we found and left on the _Laughing Lass_ no later than two days ago?“
„I haven’t set eyes on the _Laughing Lass_ for–well, I don’t know how long, but it’s five days anyway, perhaps more,“ replied Slade.
They stared at him incredulously.
„Oh, I see!“ he burst out suddenly; „there were twin dories on the schooner. The other one’s still there, I suppose. Did you find her on the stern davits?“
„That’s it, then. You see when I left—-“
Captain Parkinson’s raised hand checked him. „If you will be so good, Mr. Slade, let us have it all at once, after me nike air max classic ss.“
At table the young officers, at a sharp hint from Dr. Trendon, conversed on indifferent subjects until the journalist had partaken heartily of what the physician allowed him. Slade ate with keen Cheap Air Max appreciation.
„I tell yo u, that’s good,“ he sighed, when he had finished. „Real, live, after-dinner coffee, too. Why, gentlemen, I haven’t eaten a civilised meal, with all the trimmings, for over two years. Doc cheap nike air max tor, do you think a little of the real stuff would hurt me? It’s a pretty dry yarning.“
„One glass,“ growled the surgeon, „no more.“
„Scotch high-ball, then,“ voted Slade, „the higher the better.“
The steward brought a tall glass with ice, in which the newcomer mixed his drink. Then for quite a minute he sat silent, staring at the table, his fingers aimlessly rubbing into spots of wetness the water beads as they gathered on the outside of his glass. Suddenly he looked up.
„I don’t know how to begin,“ he confessed. „It’s too confounded improbable. I hardly believe it myself, now that I’m sitting here in human clothe nike air max 1 s, surrounded by human beings. Old Scrubs, and the Nigger, and Handy Solomon, and the P nike air max 90 sale rofessor, and the chest, and the–well, they were real enough when I was caught in the mess. But I warn you, you are not going to believe me, and hanged if I blame you a bit.“
„We’ve seen marvels ourselves in the last few days,“ encouraged Captain Parkinson.
„Fire ahead, man,“ advised Barnett impatiently. „Just begin at the beginning and let it go at that.“
Slade sipped at his glass reflectively. ③
