So he kept up a fidget and a struggle and a turning over, so he gave the whale no time to assimilate him. The man knew ttiut if' he was ever to get out he must be in perpetual motion. We know men that are so lethargie they would have given it up, and lain so quietly that in a few hours they would have gone into flukes and filibone, blow holes and blubber. Now we see men all around us who have been swallowed by inonstrous misf'ortunes. 8ome of' thera sit down on a piece of whale-bnne and give up. They say : "No use 1 I will never get back my money, or restore uiy gond name, or recover my health." Tbey float out to sea und never again are heard of.
