them and sotting them afloat, leaving
the captain und ono passenger on boar

Tho rafts were sooii surrounded by
huudrods of ravenous sharks, which, in
thoir eagerness to get at tho ship
wrecked sailors, jumped far out of tho
water. Soon several of tho Chinese
rafts woro overturned, and it was then
that tho Europeans decided, to return
to the vessel. Tho only remaining
boat was repaired and launched, tho
captain taking command.
