斯诺 When the fuze we had thrown in had filled the hut with so muchsmoke that they were almost suffocated, we threw in a small leatherbag of another kind, which flamed like a candle, and, following itin, we found there were but four people, who, as we supposed, hadbeen about some of their diabolical sacrifices. They appeared, inshort, frightened to death, at least so as to sit trembling andstupid, and not able to speak either, for the smoke.
克比斯诺克比分网即时比分一一分网The history of their coming to, and conduct in, the island after mygoing away is so very remarkable, and has so many incidents whichthe former part of my relation will help to understand, and whichwill in most of the particulars, refer to the account I havealready given, that I cannot but commit them, with great delight,to the reading of those that come after me.
比分斯诺In order to do this as intelligibly as I can, I must go back to thecircumstances in which I left the island, and the persons on it, ofwhom I am to speak. And first, it is necessary to repeat that Ihad sent away Friday's father and the Spaniard (the two whose livesI had rescued from the savages) in a large canoe to the main, as Ithen thought it, to fetch over the Spaniard's companions that heleft behind him, in order to save them from the like calamity thathe had been in, and in order to succour them for the present; andthat, if possible, we might together find some way for ourdeliverance afterwards. When I sent them away I had no visibleappearance of, or the least room to hope for, my own deliverance,any more than I had twenty years before - much less had I anyforeknowledge of what afterwards happened, I mean, of an Englishship coming on shore there to fetch me off; and it could not be buta very great surprise to them, when they came back, not only tofind that I was gone, but to find three strangers left on the spot,possessed of all that I had left behind me, which would otherwisehave been their own.斯诺克比分网即时比分一一克比分网The first thing, however, which I inquired into, that I might beginwhere I left off, was of their own part; and I desired the Spaniardwould give me a particular account of his voyage back to hiscountrymen with the boat, when I sent him to fetch them over. Hetold me there was little variety in that part, for nothingremarkable happened to them on the way, having had very calmweather and a smooth sea. As for his countrymen, it could not bedoubted, he said, but that they were overjoyed to see him (it seemshe was the principal man among them, the captain of the vessel theyhad been shipwrecked in having been dead some time): they were, hesaid, the more surprised to see him, because they knew that he wasfallen into the hands of the savages, who, they were satisfied,would devour him as they did all the rest of their prisoners; thatwhen he told them the story of his deliverance, and in what mannerhe was furnished for carrying them away, it was like a dream tothem, and their astonishment, he said, was somewhat like that ofJoseph's brethren when he told them who he was, and the story ofhis exaltation in Pharaoh's court; but when he showed them thearms, the powder, the ball, the provisions that he brought them fortheir journey or voyage, they were restored to themselves, took ajust share of the joy of their deliverance, and immediatelyprepared to come away with him.比分
斯诺Their first business was to get canoes; and in this they wereobliged not to stick so much upon the honesty of it, but totrespass upon their friendly savages, and to borrow two largecanoes, or periaguas, on pretence of going out a-fishing, or forpleasure. In these they came away the next morning. It seems theywanted no time to get themselves ready; for they had neitherclothes nor provisions, nor anything in the world but what they hadon them, and a few roots to eat, of which they used to make theirbread. They were in all three weeks absent; and in that time,unluckily for them, I had the occasion offered for my escape, as Imentioned in the other part, and to get off from the island,leaving three of the most impudent, hardened, ungoverned,disagreeable villains behind me that any man could desire to meetwith - to the poor Spaniards' great grief and disappointment.克比分网After having mused a great while on the course they should take,they resolved at last, while it was still dark, to send the oldsavage, Friday's father, out as a spy, to learn, if possible,something concerning them, as what they came for, what theyintended to do, and the like. The old man readily undertook it;and stripping himself quite naked, as most of the savages were,away he went. After he had been gone an hour or two, he bringsword that he had been among them undiscovered, that he found theywere two parties, and of two several nations, who had war with oneanother, and had a great battle in their own country; and that bothsides having had several prisoners taken in the fight, they were,by mere chance, landed all on the same island, for the devouringtheir prisoners and making merry; but their coming so by chance tothe same place had spoiled all their mirth - that they were in agreat rage at one another, and were so near that he believed theywould fight again as soon as daylight began to appear; but he didnot perceive that they had any notion of anybody being on theisland but themselves. He had hardly made an end of telling hisstory, when they could perceive, by the unusual noise they made,that the two little armies were engaged in a bloody fight.Friday's father used all the arguments he could to persuade ourpeople to lie close, and not be seen; he told them their safetyconsisted in it, and that they had nothing to do but lie still, andthe savages would kill one another to their hands, and then therest would go away; and it was so to a tittle. But it wasimpossible to prevail, especially upon the Englishmen; theircuriosity was so importunate that they must run out and see thebattle. However, they used some caution too: they did not goopenly, just by their own dwelling, but went farther into thewoods, and placed themselves to advantage, where they mightsecurely see them manage the fight, and, as they thought, not beseen by them; but the savages did see them, as we shall findhereafter.详情
