The sun shone. And then, again, came an abrupt alteration. On the 26th of April there was a squall and a lowering of the skies. The day darkened with sunset and the next dawn was black and stormy. Jack went out on the harbor to fish and gave up. " Stone grunted and sipped his perpetual wine. McCobb came in from the shop where he had been working. "It's blowing hard," he said. " Stone asked. "He'll be in. " The window-frames rattled and a door slammed. Stone fidgeted in his chair and growled at the elements.
Stone came out and never did he look more like the substance of his name. His granite face was fixed. He recognized them as if they were not people, but far-fetched theories. "There's a war," he whispered. McCobb had seen madness and he was much frightened, but Henry, who had never seen it, laughed. "War? " Vacantly, Stone stared. "I found a newspaper in that stuff--that floated--ashore. " "That's fine, father! " "I--" He walked into the center of the living-room, where the hand-made furniture was arranged between shelves of books and corpulent cupboards, where, McCobb's golden handiwork gleamed and where in the shadows were the stuffed birds and animals Henry had collected.

"Probably," Stone said, and his first assumption was very close to the truth, "they only fly out to sea once in a great while. Probably they're sending a boat. In a day or two-" Keep the fires going. Make them into smudges by day. Huge columns of smoke-like the Lord leading the Children of Israel--stiff-standing above the summit of McCobb and swinging in the little wind over the water.
