liabinson went boliiud a bush to put ou linen, stock-
ings and shoes, and lo dress himself in uniform
like an officer, a gold laced hat on his head and a
sword at his side. Being thus appareled he made his
appearance before Friday, who was so amazed that
he retired and was in doubt at first sight whether
it was his master or not. Robinson could not re-
frain from laughing ; he kindly stretched out his liand
to Friday and assured him that he was his friend and
would always remain so although he was in another
dress; he then gave him a complete sailor's suit,
explained the use of every piece, and told him to
change his dress too. This was done in a moment;
he leaped for joy like a child when he saw himself
dressed in such a manner, and still more, when
he found how easy this dress was, and how well

Robinson immediately made use of the hatchet and
dilferent other tools to make a mast to their raft,
that they might perform their intended voyages to
the ship, with the assistance of a sail, without
being obliged to wait for the Hood. Robinson him-
self undertook this labour and left Friday in the
house to milk the lamas, which they had neglected

musket, to surprise his friend by the amazing opera-
tion of the gunpowder. When Friday returned he
admired Robinson's work that was so soon ready. The
latter saw a seahawk carrying away in his flight a
fish which he had picked up. He instantly took his
musket, and said to Friday: " Do you see that seahawk
there? He will fall!" At the same moment he level-
ed his musket: paf! — and the bird fell down dead
at his feet. Friday fell likewise on the ground as
if the same shot had struck him.
