Account Of Two Castaways’ Life
On Desolate Sandbars
Durham.—Thrust by fate on a
barren island, where not so muc.i
as a blade of grass grew, or a drop
of fresh water be had. could it iX'
possible for any human being t j
live for a period of years?
Robinson Crusoe lived in reason
able comfort for years on an other
wise uninhabited and unfrequento:1
island, but Crusoe is a fictitious
character. His adventures take oft
an aspect of a well-ordered summ-f
camp routine compared to the rigor
ous experiences of one Macse Joan
STRUCK A HARD BLOW
She had thrown acid in her
husband’s face and when
the Judge asked her why
she did it replied: “I grew
so tired of seeing the same
face across from the break
fast table every morning.”

smiling faces because .Sin

a Spanish sailor who, during Mi’
years of 1528-1536, answered in the
affirmative lo the above question.
After 400 years Maese Joans mis
earable existence as a castaway on
the Serrana Keys in the Caribbean
Sea has been brought to light for
the first time, and authenticated be
yond the doubt of scholars who re
cently found the story in the ‘‘Doc
umented, Ineditos del Archieve de in
dias, X, 57-66,’ in Seville, Spain.
The story Is told in English lor the
first time in "The Hispanic Ameri
can Historical Review." published
this month at Duke university.
Just as Crusoe had his man Fri
day, Maese Joan had companion
ship. Two men and a boy were also
cast on the sanbar when Joan's shin
was wrecked, but after a month our
of the men, crazed by lack of food
and water, began to eat his own
arm and later died raving; while the
other man was lost when he tried
to leave the island on a frail craft.
For eight years Joan and the boy
lived on the lonely keys, owing their
existence solely to seals, turtles, and
Mpnins passed Driore tney were
able to start a fire, meanwhile they
ate the raw flesh and drank the
blood of seals. Turtle eggs fur
nished food five months out of th»
year, and they driea them in sum
mer for use in winter. As the whites
of turtle eggs turn to water after
being buried for some time in sand,
they found this liquid sufficient fo
their use. Rain fell out once a yea \
but they werp unable to keep a
supply of pure water.
There was not so much as a tree
on the island for shelter, but drift
wood and seal skins eventually were
shaped Into a rude tent. J5kms also
served for clothing, and they even
made a boat of . skins, seeling the
scams with grease. '.Vinters were bd
ter cold, summers extremely hot, hut
in Joan's own word;', "what caus.M
the most pain and torment was the
crabs and sea snadr, because at
night wp could not prevail against
them. and. we protected ourselves
with skins, and most of the time we
made day of night and night of
Work prevented them from going
insane, so they kept. busy. Their
biggest task was the building of two
stone towers, 24 feet high, at the
top of which they kept smoke ftr«s
After eight lonely years had passed,
the castaways sighted a sail and
quickly made a great smoke from
their towers. “And when those on
board the ship saw us.” continues
Joan’s story, "they lowered a boat,
and the master and sailors landed,
and the master, whose name is Joan
Bautista Jinoves. a citizen of
Triana, took testimony of every
thing he saw.”
Lesley Byrd Simpson, of Berkley.
Calif., has translated the original
manuscript of Maese Joan, width
was addressed to the King of Spain
by royal command. That his re
markable story could have gone al
most unnoticed for four centuries is
considered unusual by the iransla
tor, who is the author of the a"
count in the Duke university jour
