ROBINSON CRUSOE had a desire to go to sea from the
time that he was quite a boy, but his parents did not wish
it, so the first opportunity he sailed away without saying any-
thing to anybody, never thinking of the sorrow his kind Father
and M.other would feel when he was not to be found. After a
great many adventures, when he had been away a long time,
he was wrecked on the Island of Juan Fernandez. The ship
was driven on the rocks in a storm, and every one on board
was drowned except Robinson himself, who was washed ashore
by the waves just as night was coming on. In the morning he
made a raft of pieces of wood and went to the ship a good
many times, and collected all manner of things, not forgetting
S; guns, pistols, powder,
and tools of all kinds.

all the things he had 1
saved from the wreck,
and made himself a table -- .. ^^
and chair, as the clothes
in which he had been
cast .ashore were worn
out, he killed some
goats and made clothes /)
of their skins, and an ----
umbrella also. He next *
made a bow and-arrows,
and some spears and fishing-line, and practised using them till he
became so skilful that he could kill goats and catch fish when
he wanted them, and, on going one day to the other side of
the island, he found some turtles, so he carried one home and
cooked it. This was a great treat to him after having eaten
only goat's flesh for so long. He next cutdown some trees
and made a fence with their trunks and branches all around his
hut. Then he caught some goats when they were quite young,
and tamed them, this he did by digging a pit into which they
fell without being hurt, and then carrying them home to his
enclosure where they soon became quite tanme. He also man-

aged to

One day
he began.
/ building a
boat by
., means of
which he
a Hoped to
visit other islands. He was on his way to work at this boat one
morning when he saw the print of a naked foot on the sand. IHe
was so much frightened that he ran back to his hut Nothing
however, came of it, for no one appeared to whom the foot
could belong. So after -a time Robinson ventured out again,
though he did not feel as safe as he had done before, and
always kept a sharp look out about him. This continued for
aboylt two years, and then one day he saw a number of savages
on the beach, where there was a fire, and as there were several
canoes drawn up close by, he supposed, as he afterwards knew

to be the case, that they had cone from another island, and his
horror was much increased when he saw them actually kill one
of two men who lay bound on the ground, and eat his body
after cooking it at the fire. While they did this, the other pris-
oner, a black boy, escaped and ran in the direction of the place
where Robinson was hiding. Some of the savages followed
him, buat Robinson shot them, and the noise so terrified the
rest that they leapt into their canoes and paddled away. Rob-
inson gave the lad whom .,
he- had saved the name of Il1 '
Friday, because it was on
a Friday that he .came.
He soon became an affec-
tionate servant to his .
.master, and the two were
very happy together. Then
they set about building
a large boat in which
to make a voyage.
This they accom- \k JtI

and loaded it

.with provisions, but whilst they were waiting for fine and
calm weather in which to start, some canoes full of savages
again visited the island, having with them a prisoner whom
they were going to kill and eat. Robinson and Friday attacked
them with the guns, and having killed a great number, beat the
remainder into the sea. A few were able to get into their
canoes and paddle away, buit they were obliged to leave behind
one canoe containing the prisoner, and him, Friday, to his great
joy, recognized as his Father. The poor man was very weak,
and before he had recovered his strength, a ship appeared in
sight, and Robinson and Friday loading their possessions on
a raft, went out towards it, and the unfortunate Robinson had
at last the pleasure of once more
hearing an English "

home to England,. Robinson found, to his
great sor- V
row, that his.
Father and d
Mother were
both dead
and he could

he wished, ,

his grief and .
for having
disobeyed them. By-and-by he married, and after a time went
on a voyage to visit the island where they had left some English
sailors and Friday's Father. It had become quite a Colony,
and poor Friday rejoiced to see his Father once more. He,
himself, poor fellow, was killed on the way home again, to
the great distress of his master. Robinson Crusoe at last settled
down in England, and tried to do as much good as possible
to show.he was truly repentant for the foolish and disobedient
conduct of his youth, and he would often take his children
on his knee and tell them of his wonderful adventures.
