    A great storm leads the group to take refuge in a large ant nest, but the nest becomes flooded and the group barely manages to escape alive. This mganga arrives a few days later and, in a ceremony, makes to sacrifice young Jack, before taking him and Mrs Weldon away Trying a different Web browser might help. Most recently updated: January 28,

    During this return journey apart from the whaling crew and the sailors the ship also has the family of the owner of the whaling company with them as passengers. Dick and Tom's group decides to keep the truth from Mrs Weldon and her family, knowing that it will cause undue stress in them: instead, they tell Mrs Weldon that Harris lied to them, and Dick tries to lead the group to a river, which he hopes will allow them to reach the shore. During the return voyage they rescues some survivors - five people and a dog - from the wreck of another ship. Dick is adopted by the Weldons, who also take Hercules in, thankful for all that he has done. However, the ship's cook, Negoro, has sinister plans for the ship: after breaking one of the ship's compasses and leaving them without a measuring device, he places a magnet on the other compass to trick the inexperienced crew into changing their route.

    The queen and her ministers have no idea of how to revert this trouble, and none of the local "mgangas" shamans are capable of putting a stop to the bad weather, leading the queen to hire a famous mganga living in the north of Angola. Dick is adopted by the Weldons, who also take Hercules in, thankful for all that he has done. Negoro escapes with Mrs Weldon's money.

There was also a species of palm producing an oil locally much valued; there were cotton-plants growing in bushes eight or ten feet high, the cotton attached in long shreds to the ligneous stalks; and there were copals from which, pierced by the proboscis of certain insects, exudes an odorous resin that flows on to the ground and is collected by the natives.
