"Of all the gooneys that ever got away from the backwoods, _we_ take the bun!"
For a week they subsisted on gooneys, taro root, cocoanuts and cocoanut milk, and a sea-turtle which Scraggs found wandering on the beach.
The gooneys were becoming shy and distrustful and the syndicate was experiencing more and more difficulty, not only in killing them, but in eating them.
He found some gooneys asleep on a rocky crag and killed half a dozen of them with a club.
