                      1
                      The For farshire
                      Daniel Donovan was a passenger on the For farshire. He stood on the deck of the ship, and looked at the sea. It was difficult to stand on the deck, because the wind was so strong. The ship was moving up and down uncomfortably and Daniel felt ill. Then a big wave hit the side of the ship, and salt water flew into his face.
                      'The wind is getting stronger,' said a passenger beside him. He was a tall, dark man with a black coat — Mr Robb, a churchman. 'And it's getting darker, too.'
                      'Yes,' said Daniel. 'I can't see the land now.' He looked to the west, but he could see no land, no lights. Only water — big grey waves with white tops, which went up and down, up and down.
                      'But the For farshire is a good modern ship,' said Mr Robb. 'Nothing can happen to a new ship like this. Listen to those fine strong engines!'
                      Daniel looked down at the big paddle wheel on the side of the ship. It went round and round, down under the white water, and up again... under the water, and up. Then he looked up at the black smoke which came from the For farshire's funnel.
                      'Yes,' he said. 'They're good, strong engines.' But he was not really sure. He was an engineer, so he knew about engines. Sometimes the For farshire's engines made strange noises, and the paddle wheels went round slowly. Then there was a crash, and they went quickly again. Daniel was not happy.
                      A sea-bird flew low across the white tops of the big, grey waves. Daniel watched it, and felt wind and rain on his face. Then a door opened behind him, and a woman screamed.
                      'Simon, come back! Come back at once!'
                      Daniel looked behind him, and saw a small boy. He was running across the deck. He was only three or four years old, and the wind was much too strong for him. He fell over on the deck and began to cry. Then another big wave hit the side of the ship. The white water came over the side and carried the boy along the deck.
                      'Help!' the woman screamed. 'Save my child!'
                      Daniel put out a hand and caught the boy's coat. Then he carried him quickly back to his mother.
                      'Quick! Get back in, out of the wind, woman!' he shouted. He hurried through the door and closed it with a crash. 'It's too dangerous for children out there!'
                      'Yes, I know,' the woman said. 'Come here, Simon!' She sat down and held the boy with one arm. She had another child in her other arm — a little girl, about one or two years old. 'Thank you, sir,' she said.
                      The ship moved up and down very quickly, and Daniel sat down beside the woman. She smiled at him, but she looked very white and ill.
                      'I'm Daniel Donovan,' he said, 'What's your name?'
                      'Mary Dawson,' she said. 'This is my son Simon, and my daughter Sarah.'
                      'Isn't your husband with you?'
                      'No,' she said. 'He's in Scotland. We're going home to see him. It's good we're in a strong, modern ship.'
                      'Yes,' said Daniel. Then for a few seconds he said nothing. It was quiet in this room. Much quieter than outside.
                      'Mr Donovan,' said Mrs Dawson suddenly. 'What's happened to the engines? I can't hear them now. Can you?'
                      Daniel listened. 'My God,' he thought. 'She's right! The engines have stopped!' He could hear the noise of the wind and the sea, but not the engines. 'You're right, Mrs Dawson,' he said. He stood up, and ran to the door. 'Excuse me. I...' But then he opened the door, and his words were lost in the wind.
                      Outside, he looked up at the ship's funnel. There was no smoke above it. He looked over the side of the ship, at the big paddle wheels. He watched them for two minutes, but they did not move. And all the time the big grey waves lifted the For farshire up and down, and white water blew over the deck.
                      'What's happening?' screamed Mr Robb. 'Why aren't we moving?'
                      'The engines have broken down!' shouted Donovan. 'This isn't a sailing ship — it can't move without its engines!'
                      A big wave hit the side of the paddle wheel and sent white water over their heads. Some sailors were trying to put up a small sail, but the wind belw it out of their hands, away across the sea into the night.
                      'There are women and children on this ship,' shouted Mr Robb. 'It's nearly dark, and the weather is getting worse. What can we do?'
                      Daniel looked at him. 'I don't know, my friend,' he shouted back. 'I can't do anything. Why not ask God — you're a churchman! Perhaps He'll send an angel to save us!'

                      1.福法尔郡号
                      丹尼尔·多诺万是福法尔郡号上的一名?#19997;汀?#20182;站在船甲板上望着大海。由于风势强劲,人很难在甲板上站稳。船上下颠簸得很厉害,丹尼尔觉得很不舒服。?#24188;?#19968;个大浪打在船侧,海水飞溅到他脸上。
                      “风力越来越强了,”他身边的一名?#19997;退怠?#36825;位高大黝黑的黑衣男士是罗布先生,一位牧师,“而且天也越来越黑了。”
                      “是的,”丹尼尔说,“现在我已经看不见陆地了。”他向西望去,但是看不见陆地,?#37096;?#19981;见任何亮光。他只看见海水——顶着白色?#24605;獾幕?#33394;巨浪不?#31995;?#36215;伏汹涌。
                      “但是福法尔郡号是一艘优良的新式海船,”罗布先生说,“这样一艘新船是不会出事的。听听那些精良有力的引擎发出的声音。”
                      丹尼尔低头看船侧的巨大桨轮,它们不停转动,?#20493;?#28145;入白色的水下,?#20493;?#38075;出水面……周而?#35789;肌=幼?#20182;抬起头来,看着福法尔郡号烟囱里冒出的黑烟。
                      “是的,”他说,“它们是强有力的引擎。”但他其实并不肯定。他是一名机械师,熟悉引擎。福法尔郡号的引擎时不时会发出异常的噪音,桨轮也转得缓慢。?#24188;?#20250;发出撞击声,桨轮?#21482;?#22797;快速转动。丹尼尔忧心忡忡。
                      一只海鸟低空飞过灰色巨浪的白色?#24605;狻?#20025;尼尔盯着它,感觉风雨打在自己脸上。突然他身后的一扇门打开了,一个女人在尖?#26657;?br /> “西蒙,回来!马上回来!”
                      丹尼尔往身后一瞧,看到一个小男孩。他正从甲板那边跑过来。他只有三四岁,这风对他来说是太大了。他摔倒在甲板上,哭了起来。正在这时又一个巨浪击中船侧,白色的海浪冲过船舷,把小男孩沿着甲板冲出了一段距离。
                      “救命啊!”那女人尖叫道,“救?#20219;业?#23401;子!”
                      丹尼尔伸出一只手抓住?#22235;?#23401;的外套,然后飞快地把男孩抱还给他的母?#20303;?br /> “快!回里面去,别待在风里,女士!”他喊道。他迅速走进舱门,使劲把门砰地关上。“孩子在外面太危险了!”
                      “是的,我知道,”女人说,“过来,西蒙!”她坐下来,用一只胳臂搂着男孩。她的另一只胳臂里还抱着一个孩子——一个一两岁大的小女孩。“谢谢您,先生。”她说道。
                      船颠簸?#32654;?#23475;,丹尼尔在这个女?#26494;?#36793;坐下来。她冲他笑了笑,但她看起来苍白而虚弱。
                      “我叫丹尼尔·多诺万,”他说,“您叫什么名字?”
                      “玛丽·道森,”她回答说,“这是?#19994;?#20799;?#28216;?#33945;和女儿萨拉。”
                      “您丈夫没和您一起吗?”
                      “没?#26657;?rdquo;她说,“他在苏格兰呢,我们现在就是回去看他。幸好我们坐的是一艘坚固的新式轮船。”
                      “是啊。”丹尼尔说。?#24188;?#20182;沉默?#24605;?#31186;钟。客舱里很安静,比外面安静多了。
                      “多诺万先生,”道森夫人突然说,“引擎怎么了?我听不见响了,您能听见吗?”
                      丹尼尔听了听。“天哪,”他想,“她说得对!引擎已经停了!”他能听到狂风和大海的喧嚣声,但听不到引擎的声音。“您说得对,道森夫人。”说着他站了起来,向门口跑去。“失陪一下,我……”但?#24188;?#20182;打开门,话音随之消散在风里。
                      到了外面,他抬头看轮船的烟囱——上面没有冒烟。他从船侧探头察看巨大的桨轮,看了两分钟,但它们一动不动。而灰色的大浪一直载着福法尔郡号不断上下颠簸,白色的水花飞溅到甲板上。
                      “出什?#35789;?#20102;?”罗布先生尖叫道,“为什么我们原地不动了?”
                      “引擎出毛病了!”多诺万大叫着说,“这不是帆船,没有引擎它就动不了!”
                      一个巨浪击中桨轮,激起的浪花飞过他们头顶。一些水手试图升起一面小帆,但大风将它从水手们手里刮了出去,飘向大海远处,最后消失于夜色中。
                      “船上还有妇女和孩子,”罗布先生喊道,“天快黑了,天气越来越糟。我们该怎么办?”
                      丹尼尔看着他。“?#20063;恢?#36947;,?#19994;?#26379;友,”他回喊道,“我无能为力。干吗不问问上帝——您可是一位牧师!也许上帝会派一位天使来救我们!”
