With hinging eyes he looks at the others eating, bu he makes no attempt to join them Now and again a bit of sonlething falls his way. The temptation is too strong --he reaches toward the morsel. The captain, who overlooks noticing, gives a low growl. The dying creature shrinks back without a murmur, tie knows the law. Perhaps he. too, was once a captain.
