The day begins to break now; and in truth it might be better for the national glory even that the sun should sometimes set upon the British dominions than that it should ever rise upon so vile a wonder as Tom. A brown sunburnt gentleman, who appears in some inaptitude for sleep to be wandering abroad rather than counting the hours on a restless pillow, strolls hitherward at this quiet time.

Mentally, they are at a low level, the lowest, in the opinion of Owen, among the races of mankind. In counting they have words for only one and two, but can count up to ten by touching the nose with each of the fingers in succession, saying each time, "this one also." Their language is of a primitive type, and in various respects they manifest low intelligence.

Whilst the Disagreeable Man was paying the reckoning, Frau Steinhart said in her most motherly tones: "Fräulein is a very dear young lady: Herr Allitsen has made a wise choice. He is betrothed at last!" The Disagreeable Man stopped counting out the money. "Stupid old Frau Steinhart!" he said good-naturedly. "People like myself don't get betrothed. We get buried instead!" "Na, na!" she answered.

All this was thoroughly illogical, of course; it left the question whether slaves are population or chattels for theorizers to wrangle over, and for future events to decide.

I hope we can enroll a dozen good fellows for a start. The rest will flock over after a bit, when they get to know what fine times we expect to have," remarked Paul. They found that there were just a dozen present, counting A. Cypher, who as host was much in evidence.

The house, crowded with effects, the bustling housewife counting her possessions, the serious, indoctrinated island pastor, the long fight for life in the lagoon: here are traits of a new world. I should take the two races, though so near in neighbourhood, to be extremes of Polynesian diversity.
