Adventures in Thule free pdf Excerpt from Adventures in Thule: Three Stories for Boys "Archie, my father is a hard-working man- and it is not easy now to make the farms pay, with the rents high and sheep not selling well at the market. My father has not his troubles to seek, as the minister says. And to think that these Frenchmen should be allowed to go and kill a sheep, just as they want it, when they are going by Farriskeir or Rua- that is what angers me." "And me, too," said Archie Livingstone, "though it is not my fathers sheep they kill. It angers me because they are. Frenchmen- yes, and thieves besides. But what can you do, Colin?" They were still regarding the far islands. "If my father would let me," McCalmont said "I'd go out and live on Farriskeir until all the French smacks had gone by to Iceland, If they knew any one was on Farriskeir or Rua, that would be enough. They would soon talk about it among themselves, and there would be no more stealing of my fathers sheep. Do you think I would be afraid? I would not be afraid. I would build myself a hut, for there is plenty of wood washed up since the big vessel went ashore on Rua." "Colin," said the other, after awhile, "I have something to tell you. Do you know my horse-pistol?" "Of course I know it." "Would it not be a fine thing, now, if you and I were to go out to Farriskeir and hide behind the rocks, and when the Frenchmen were coming near we might have a shot at them?" "Yes, and maybe kill some one," said the other, scornfully. "That would be a fine thing. It would be a fine thing to be hanged." "How could they hang you for that?" said the schoolmaster's son. "If a man comes into your house to steal your money, you may shoot at him- and if he comes to your island to steal your sheep, why not the same? Besides he is a Frenchman. The sheriff at Stornoway would not say anything to you for shooting at Frenchman." "I don't know that. I am not going to try," said the elder lad, with a grim sort of a smile. "But I will tell you now, Archie, what would be a fine thing. Do you think we could slip away to Farriskeir without being seen? There is no one going down to the boat just now- they would not miss it at all. And if any one were asking for us, would they not think we had gone up to sheilling with bread for Marry and Ailasa and the rest of them?
