her a full length further into the

Columbus was the first on deck,
and instantly comprehending what
had happened, he ordered the
frightened master, with a boat's
crew, to carry a kedge anchor out
astern. Half awake, bewildered
and thoroughly terrified, the men
tumbled into the boat, but, instead
ot obeying the admiral's orders,
they rowed frantically towards the
Nina, more than a rriile away.

reproaches for thus deserting his

his speed he was too late to save
the Santa Maria, for she was now
too firmly imbedded in the treach treacherous
erous treacherous sands ever to be moved from
them, and it was even feared that
under the cruel pounding of the
breakers she would go to pieces
before daylight. Her masts were
cut away, her guns were thrown
overboard and everything possible

avail. At length their situation
became so perilous that the admi admiral,

the vessel of everything that she

labor that before nightfall the

By sundown the melancholy task

first Christmas day came to an
end, though it is doubtful if any of
the Spaniards, in their excitement

that it was Christmas.

the Nina was far too small to carry
