Michael Holroyd (E); 14Mar77; R658250.

The chief attendant of the three dynamos that buzzed and rattled at Camberwell, and kept the electric railway going, came out of Yorkshire, and his name was James Holroyd.

But Holroyd called him Pooh-bah.

Holroyd liked a nigger help because he would stand kickinga habit with Holroydand did not pry into the machinery and try to learn the ways of it.

Certain odd possibilities of the negro mind brought into abrupt contact with the crown of our civilisation Holroyd never fully realised, though just at the end he got some inkling of them.

Holroyd tried to elucidate his religious beliefs, andespecially after whiskylectured to him against superstition and missionaries.

The day of his landing was a dismal one; the sky was dun, and a wind-worried drizzle filtered down to the greasy streets, but he plunged boldly into the delights of Shadwell, and was presently cast up, shattered in health, civilised in costume, penniless, and, except in matters of the direst necessity, practically a dumb animal, to toil for James Holroyd, and to be bullied by him in the dynamo shed at Camberwell.

And to James Holroyd bullying was a labour of love.

And for three months, while the big strike of the engineers was in progress, Holroyd, who was a blackleg, and Azuma-zi, who was a mere black, were never out of the stir and eddy of it, but slept and fed in the little wooden shanty between the shed and the gates.

Holroyd delivered a theological lecture on the text of his big machine soon after Azuma-zi came.

"Look at that," said Holroyd; "where's your 'eathen idol to match 'im?"

For a moment Holroyd was inaudible, and then Azuma-zi heard: "Kill a hundred men.

Twelve per cent, on the ordinary shares," said Holroyd, "and that's something like a Gord.

" Holroyd was proud of his big dynamo, and expatiated upon its size and power to Azuma-zi until heaven knows what odd currents of thought that and the incessant whirling and shindy set up within the curly black cranium.

Now and then the brushes would sparkle and spit blue flashes, at which Holroyd would swear, but all the rest was as smooth and rhythmic as breathing.

So it lived all day in this big airy shed, with him and Holroyd to wait upon it; not prisoned up and slaving to drive a ship as the other engines he knewmere captive devils of the British Solomonhad been, but a machine enthroned.

He would sit about and watch the Lord of the Dynamos while Holroyd went away to persuade the yard porter to get whisky, although his proper place was not in the dynamo shed but behind the engines, and, moreover, if Holroyd caught him skulking he got hit for it with a rod of stout copper wire.

He would sit about and watch the Lord of the Dynamos while Holroyd went away to persuade the yard porter to get whisky, although his proper place was not in the dynamo shed but behind the engines, and, moreover, if Holroyd caught him skulking he got hit for it with a rod of stout copper wire.

He took every opportunity Holroyd gave him of touching and handling the great dynamo that was fascinating him.

When he came into the roaring shed one morning he salaamed to the Lord of the Dynamos, and then, when Holroyd was away, he went and whispered to the thundering machine that he was its servant, and prayed it to have pity on him and save him from Holroyd.

When he came into the roaring shed one morning he salaamed to the Lord of the Dynamos, and then, when Holroyd was away, he went and whispered to the thundering machine that he was its servant, and prayed it to have pity on him and save him from Holroyd.

Then, the next time Holroyd maltreated him, Azuma-zi went presently to the Lord of the Dynamos and whispered, "Thou seest, O my Lord!" and the angry whirr of the machinery seemed to answer him.

Thereafter it appeared to him that whenever Holroyd came into the shed a different note came into the sounds of the dynamo.

One day there was evidence of short circuiting, and Holroyd, making an unwary examinationit was in the afternoongot a rather severe shock.

" Holroyd had at first initiated his "nigger" into such elementary conceptions of the dynamo's working as would enable him to take temporary charge of the shed in his absence.

At which Holroyd twisted his arm and kicked him as he turned to go away.

As Azuma-zi presently stood behind the engine and glared at the back of the hated Holroyd, the noises of the machinery took a new rhythm, and sounded like four words in his native tongue.

At any rate, when the idea of making Holroyd a sacrifice to the Dynamo Fetich was thus suggested to him, it filled him with a strange tumult of exultant emotion.

Holroyd heard a click, and the spin of the armature changed.

"You coffee-headed fool!" gasped Holroyd, with a brown hand at his throat.

Then he saw an odd-looking crumpled mass clinging to the front of the big dynamo, and, approaching, recognised the distorted remains of Holroyd.

He turned on his heel before he opened them, so that he should not see Holroyd again, and went out of the shed to get advice and help.

When Azuma-zi saw Holroyd die in the grip of the Great Dynamo he had been a little scared about the consequences of his act.

Did he see Holroyd kill himself?

The distorted remains of Holroyd, which the electrician removed from the machine, were hastily covered by the porter with a coffee-stained table-cloth.

But now the slender form and slender shadow of the scientific manager replaced the sturdy outline of Holroyd travelling up and down the lane of light upon the vibrating floor under the straps between the engines and the dynamos.

As he looked at the big whirling mechanism the strange fascination of it that had been a little in abeyance since Holroyd's death resumed its sway.

Captain Gerilleau, who was Holroyd's sole distraction from these physical distresses, developed into a formidable bore, telling the simple story of his heart's affections day by day, a string of anonymous women, as if he was telling beads.

" After that he talked frequently of the ants to Holroyd, and whenever they chanced to drift against any speck of humanity in that waste of water and sunshine and distant trees, Holroyd's improving knowledge of the language enabled him to recognise the ascendant word Saรผba, more and more completely dominating the whole.

This seemed to Holroyd a perfectly new idea.

Holroyd was roused from meditations that were becoming sinister by the hum of a mosquito.

The next morning Holroyd learnt they were within forty kilometres of Badama, and his interest in the banks intensified.

But he did so at last, and went a little way to call up Holroyd.

"Caramba!" cried Gerilleau, and resorted to Holroyd forthwith.

Holroyd was half-way up the companion.

"Dead!" said Holroyd.

And the captain suddenly turned his back on Holroyd and became an active and strident commander.

Then the curiosity of the captain made him draw up almost alongside as the lieutenant got aboard, so that the whole of the Santa Rosa, deck and hold, was visible to Holroyd.

Captain Gerilleau embarked upon speculations that Holroyd could not follow, and the two men disputed with a certain increasing vehemence.

Holroyd took up the field-glass and resumed his scrutiny, first of the ants and then of the dead man amidships.

"I believe these men were killed by the ants," said Holroyd abruptly in English.

He made no answer to Holroyd.

Holroyd saw the ants retreating before da Cunha's boots.

Holroyd put up the glasses.

Holroyd understood the Portuguese to say the body was too much eaten to tell.

Holroyd gathered only fragments of its purport.

Holroyd's glasses searched the canoe.

Holroyd heard the splash.

Holroyd and the captain came out of the cabin in which the swollen and contorted body of the lieutenant lay and stood together at the stern of the monitor, staring at the sinister vessel they trailed behind them.

Are we to run away from these confounded ants whenever they show up?" Holroyd said nothing.

" Holroyd was not moved to conversation.

Holroyd watched the mounting yellow flare against the blackness, and the livid flashes of sheet lightning that came and went above the forest summits, throwing them into momentary silhouette, and his stoker stood behind him watching also.

But Holroyd was thinking that these little creatures on the decked canoe had also eyes and brains.

So Holroyd hooted and whistled.

"Dere is one thing we can do," he said presently, "What's that?" said Holroyd.

Holroyd's improving ear detected something about ammunition.

Holroyd thinks he distinguished curious earthworks running between the nearer houses, that may have been the work of the insect conquerors of those human habitations.

Holroyd turned and stared at the captain, realising slowly that he referred to the unappetising mixture of races that constituted his crew.

" Holroyd thought he did, but he said nothing.

In the dawn he awakened Holroyd.

"Lord!" said Holroyd, "what now?" "I have decided," said the captain.

"Whatto land?" said Holroyd, sitting up brightly.

"I have decided," he repeated, and Holroyd manifested symptoms of impatience.

"It is no good," he said to Holroyd; "no good at all.

I heard this story in a fragmentary state from Holroyd not three weeks ago.

No eye-witnesses of their activity, except for such glimpses as Holroyd's, have survived the encounter.

They are increasing rapidly in numbers, and Holroyd at least is firmly convinced that they will finally dispossess man over the whole of tropical South America.
