“Weary” was Ora’s best attempt to say “Will”. This was the name of a dissipated young European who had lately come to the island. Hurue knew that the fellow was not to be believed; but instead of saying so, he quietly asked, “If Weary says that Timmy is a liar, how do we know that Weary is not lying?” 

That reasoning was too deep for Ora. He was silent a few moments; then he remarked, “Weary says the islanders would be better off if the missionaries had never come here.” 

Hurue had heard such talk before, and he was ready with a reply: “If the missionaries had never come here, the islanders might offer Weary as a sacrifice to their heathen gods, as they used to offer any one they didn’t like. Besides, Ora, if the missionaries had never come, you and I might have been killed when we were babies, as so many were in the heathen times.”
