Its soil, with little tillage, produces the nutmeg, the clove, coffee, the cocoa-nut, the sugar-cane, the pepper-vine, gambia or terra japonica, and all the fruits common to Malacca and Java.

"Now get your hyposprays and fill him full of that stuff you use. The corporal, too." "Sergeant," Rip corrected. His first action on getting back to the asteroid would be to recommend Santos' promotion to Terra base. He intended to recommend Kemp for corporal, too. He was sure the Planeteers at Terra would make the promotions.

"I was right," he told himself almost smugly. The six hour shift was finally ended without any further show of resistance. That is, it was six hours by Algonian time, but about eight by Terra standards.

He relates with simplicity, and often with a sensibility not common in the historians of that time, the examples of cruelty of which he was a witness.

"Believe me, I don't carre what becomes of me as long as I'm above ground on terra cotta " "We've got to get away from here before daylight, so come on," interrupted Tom. "Are we going up to the house?" "What else can we do?"

Being a fine night I decided to stay in the vicinity. An officer of a pioneer battalion kindly offered me a share of his dug-out one of Fritz's cast-offs. I gladly accepted, and over a cup or rather a tin of tea, we exchanged views on various subjects. About ten o'clock I went above to terra firma and watched the shells bursting over the German lines.

And nowe within these few dayes we haue found here Maiz or Guinie wheate, whose eare yeeldeth corne for bread 400. vpon one eare, and the Cane maketh very good and perfect sugar, also Terra Samia, otherwise Terra sigillata.
