BREWSTER HERALD HATE By Arthur D. Howden Smith / opyright, 19|8 JLRTHR D. HOWDEN SSfIT W WNU Service 8TORY FROM THE 8TART Returning to America, during the War of 1812, after a success- ful voyage, Capt. Lion Fellowes' merchant ship Sachem is sunk off Portugal by a British frigate. His crew surrenders, but Fellowes reaches shore exhausted. His life Is saved by an English-speaking girl who conceals her identity. He learns from her, however. that she is about to set out for Lisbon. Fellowes goes to Lisbon. hoping to find a vessel America bound. He meets Capt. Chater, of the American shin True Bounty, an acquaintance. Chater offers him a berth as mute. Fellowes refuses, knowing Chater is dis- loyal in trading with the enemy. He meets the girl who saved his life, Cars Inglepin. daughter of the owner of the True Bounty, Cars induces him to sell as mate CHAPTER Ill---Continued --4-- Everyone but the duenna hastened on deck to watch the Badger come oaming down from windward. "Oh, brave," cried Cars ingletiin. 'clapping her hands delightedly. She received Fcilowes' eager greet. lag with a hint of embarrassment-- almost as if she regretted last Right's kiss, he thought--and continued q Rickiy" "We are fortunate 'tis the Badger Sometimes the blockading captains are very severe. But Captain Col. lishawe Is a gentleman, and my fa. er's friend." "'Crimpln' ' Collishawe I Yes, many Americans have called m friend i" "Why, Lien l" There was asperity tu her tone. -"ris vulgar, I vow You must not speak so. You'll ill commend yourself to Captain Col- llshawe." "I have no concern with Captain Colllshawe," he returned, and walked away, heedless of her protesL The Badger rounded to under the True Bounty's quarter. Coillshawe hung in the sta'b'd miszen-rigging, a tall lean man, of about Fellowes' age, handsomely uniformed, his half.boots polished, his blue coat fitting trimly His manner was haughty as he hailed: "AhOy! What ship's that?" "True Bounty, Cap's Chater, from ]Lisbon for New York, with wine and lemons," answered Chater, "I'll send a boat aboard you," snapped 0ollishawe. "Have your pa- l)ers ready." He turnel to give some order, and Miss Inglspin ran to the True Boun- ty's side, waving her mantilla. "Oh, James," she cried. "Haven't Sou a word for me? 'TIS unmannerly, sir." He swung around. The sternness melted from his features. "Cars I What rare good fortune I rll come aboard, myself." The Badger's boat swung overside and rowed smartly across the gap of choppy water sepating the vessels. Collishawe Leaped from its gudwale to the rope-ladder Ohater had ordered rigged for him, ascending its rungs as lightly as a monkey and vaulted to the merchantman's deck with hands outstretched to Cars. Their voices, friendly, excited, clamoring together, exasperated Fellowes unreasonably, He tried not to listen to them, hut he couldn't very well help himself. "--dispatches on the eve of our sail. lag," she was saying, "'vas report- ed the Grand army evacuated 'Moscow in October, and was torn to pieces in the retreat. Napoleon, himself, barely escaped." "Great news," applauded Col- llshawe. "And the Peninsula?" "Lord Wellington carries all before him. Sour is on the defensive. Your people are certain they will drive him over the Pyrenees before autumn." "Excellent ! An uphill struggle, b'gad, but the French are high finished. With the Bussians on their backs--" "But have you news for us?" she interrupted eageriF. "Have you heard of my father?" He laughed on a keen, hoylsh note that Fellowes found ingratiating. "We hear from our friend Your father does well but is roundly abused. Your uncle diverts himself fitting out privateers against us.'* His face clouded. "The Yankees have tricked us once more with those raseea of thelr Our Java struck to the Constitution in a fight oft the Bmzils. wis said the Constitution re fused to close, and hammered the Iava with her Long guns 1 hold we are hut discovering captains grown soft from fighting the French." Chater fawned assent; but Cars Inglspin replied spiritedly: "No, James. you are wrong, and you do your own country no honor thereby, sin*e we Americans are but Englishman transplanted to another land and toying with another go.vern- mev;' He laughed once more at that. "'Toying with another government. Nou have a trick of language, Cars. ris so, They are for re-electing this t.41ot Pldent of theirs, wtdle ose of your father's opinion labor to sap. ply our wants--and ;eme,iy the sores that run at home. But their eyeb will be opened anon. Adnflral Cockhurn has proclaimed a blockade of their whole coast, and with Napoleon tot- tering we shall soon have suii|cien! troops In Canada to brush aside their militia levies, sweep down the Hud sou and tare New York." "Aye, aye, Cap's Colllshawe, that's how it shall be," Chafer cried ser vilely. "And If ye'll suffer me to at- tend ye to the cabin, we'll tell ye summu t of interest along that line." Care seconded the invitation, "Yes, yes, James, do [e! me give you a Jsh of tea. We've so much to discuss, i had vast success in Lis- bon* There were friends bae me fetch messages to you, and my father will wish to know how the Admiral esteems our purposes. So come be low, James, and meanwhile Captain Chater shall give orders to break out a barrel o port for you--yes, Cap- fain Chnter, and a fierce of lemons to ward against the scurvy." Collishawe bowed his appreciation. "Always thoughtful, Cara! Ah, I'll be grateful when this cursed war is ended, and I may call on you again in Broadway, and smoke my pipe in the garden under the tulip trees." Her answering smile, as he ushered her into the cabin, was a dagger of Jealousy in Fellowes' heart. Raging silently, the Long Islander didn't hear Chater's hail ,until it had been re peated. "Fellowesi Ahoy, Mr. Fellowes! Ye heard Miss Cara's orders? Well, see to 'era. The port ye can take from the cabin stores--I'll send the key." For the new quarter hour Fellowes was busy, slinging the keg of port overside, and breaking out the lemons from beneath the for'ard hatch. When the task had been concluded he walked aft, entering the cabin companionway without knocking, as was his custom. At the end of the passage was the main cabin, a spacious apartment, with a long table thwartwise of the ship, about which sat Miss Inglepln. Collishawe and Chafer, their heads bent over a small heap of papers. FeILowes could distinguish several documents which bore official seals. "The Admiral should be off the Delaware capes," Collishawe was say- ing. "But we'll pass on the word to him." '*We must have time to consult our New England friends," interposed Miss inglepin. "Aye, 'tie UO matter to.be hasted," agreed Chater. And raising his head, perceived Fellowes in the companion. way. "Well, naow, what will it be, r. Fellowes?" "The cabin stores key." "Oh l" Chater cracked his finger knuckles abstractedly, peering from his mate to the Badger's captain. "Well, Jest hang tt on the hook there That'll be all, Mr. Fcilowes." Miss Inglepln looked away as Fel. lewes strode across the narrow floor, but Colllshawe eyed him alertly. 'q've seen you in New York, haven't I?" Coilishawe asked Fellowes, who rsptted, with a shrug: "Ver likely, Captain. I remember having seen you," "Ahl Be so good as to shut the companionway door after you." Fellowes tramped out. What were they up to in the cabinY He recalled Care's eonversatlon with Wellington. Wasthe True Bounty a medium for conveying intelligence of treasonable plots to the enemy? Against the evidence accusatory he balanced his conviction of Cara's es- sential honesty, and not least, her fervid plea the night before. And he mustn't let Jealousy of another man dye his opinions, he realized. Perhaps half an hour passed, when the cabin door banged open, and Col. llshawe stepped out, Chafer at his heels. "Very good, Captain, n the English- man said in response to a remark Fellowes missed. "Please tell Miss Cars Pm sorry she was obliged to leave us. And i shall have to ask you to muster your crew. Very strict or ders, y' know. 'Admiral instructs me to seize every Britl subject in enemy vessels." "Well, anew, sir, Jest ye cast your eye over the men," whinnied (.'hater. "Good, honest Federalists, every man Jack of 'era, New Englandere, except a couple of lads out of Long Island." "What about your officers?'

"Born In London, weren't you" "My father was--" "Born in London?" "My parents were in London be cans0---" "Went to Eton, ehY' "Yes, but 1 don see - CoUlshawe strode over to the gang- way. "A couple of you men up here," he called down to his boat's crew. And" then, over his shoulder to Chater: 'Tll have to press this man.

"Bundle this feller overside," he di- rected the two bluejackets who had swarmed the gangway. The bluejackets had seized Fel- Lewes by either arm, and he tried to wrench out of their grip. "Captain," be appealed to Chater, "you'll never submit to tids l It's barefaced kidnaping." Chater cracked his knuckles loudly, his sly twinkle belying the mournful droop assumed by his nut-cracker fea- tures. "Doan't, for marcy's sake, go and fight, Fellowes," he begged. "'Twon't do ye no good." He addressed Col* lishawe direct: I calc'late ye kind of misunderstand, Captain. I've kna?wed Fellowes for years. His fa- ther was in London---" "Immaterial to me what fetched his father to London," snapped Collishawe. "He's British-bern. Get oa with him men." Fellowes began to struggle, but the two husky blue'Jackets pinioned his hands behind his back. One of them natched a loose cell or rope from the deck, and slipped a loop around his waist. "Over with ye, me 'early," he said cheerfully, and gave Fellowes a shove. The Long Islander tumbled out the gangway, and skillfully checked by his captors above, was lowered Like a meal sack into the waiting quarter. boat, heaving on the swell under the True Bounty's lee. A tittle stunned by his bumping de- scent Fellowes lay where he had fallen whlle'Collishawe dropped nim- bly into the sternsheets. The Tru Bounty bad way on her, and was el. ready sliding through the water; but Fellowes bad a brief glimpse of the duenna's face, very white and worn, Tiiat is, he thought it was the duenna he saw, for the first time since putting out over Tagus bar, but he decided he must have lost his senses. For the face at the port said distinctly, witi a thick tongue t ."Arrah, holy saints, they've stole the poor lad clans away I" Fellowes was dum.founded, dazed by the suddenness 0f thS injustice which had overtaken him. A whip was lowered from the yardarm of the Badger, and he was slung through the air as casually as so much marches. disc. Collishawe, who followed him by way of the Jacob's ladder, was equally casual in manner. "Slack oft this man's bonds. Mr, Curry---" to an ocer, who held a spy- glass under his arm--"have that quar. terboat hauled aboard, and make sail for our station. Bosunl Clinchl Where's Clinch?" "Aye, aye, sir l" A stalwart, bat- tered sailor, with a Jagged scar acrosJ one cheek, rolled up, tugging at his forelock. "Have this man mnstere In--able seaman--draw clothing for him." But Fellowes turned desperately to Collishawe. "Look here, Cltain," he exclaimed, "you've made a mistake. Pro not a British subject -- "Born in London, weren't youY'-" "Yes, but my father and mother both were American citizens. My fa- ther was our consul." "Humph I Dont think that lets you off. However--Humph I Got your press protection?" "'Press protecti0n" Fellowes re- peated thiekiy. "No l Why should 1 carry one7 rm an American citizen, i tell you--and no common sailor, into the bargain. I hold master's papers." Collishawe eyed him coldly. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Mangian Love Letters Inscribed on Bamboo build a hut--to burn such telltale doc- uments would be to light a fire en- dangering the forest. Specimens of the love letter poles have been ac- quired by scientists and translated, and the astounding truth discovered that a Mangian in love is an inordi. ante Liar I Perhaps the queerest type of Love letter know in the. world Is that in vogue among the Mangians of the hill lands and mountains of Mindoro, P. L, who still hold to the ancient alphubet of about three vowels and ten conso- rants which they group into words nseribed ou bamboo in a single ver- tical column, their bolos serving them as a stylus. They are an extremely simple and timid people and their more aggressive Malayan neighbors have made them hunt cover in the highlands and the primeval forests. For business, aside from the very im- portant business of making love, they hardly need writing at all ; and sure ly no bamboo ledgers to record their wealth. But love makes as ardent demands upon them as upon other folk, and their swains fallen victim to Cupid whip out their bolos, slash down a good-sized bamboo, and go to verse writing with Intense gusto. So that a love missive may be strung along the length of a 45-foot pole, and the one end trailing in the forest path as the poet indites a warm postscripi on the other.

News Gathering Both Simple and Effective Life in the highly sophisticated South Sea Isles Is by no means as newsless as one might hazard by measuring the number of miles separ- ating them from Fleet street (writes a globe-trotting correspondent). The Papeete planters have bestowed the pleasing name of coconut wireless on the means by whlch their wives and daughters keep up wlth all the news that really matters. Every sun-up the native maids meet at the market-place and pool the previous day's domestic log while they do the forthcoming day's shopplng. These reporters bring back their gleanings to the housewife news edltors, who publish to thelr yawning spouses, over the breakfast coffee, "All the News That's Fit to Print" (and a great deal that Isn't). In consequence, what every family does not know about every othe fam- ily can positively be sprawled across the head of a pin.
