ship, a schooner, ran ashore In the
vicinity of Cape Hatteraa. with all sail
set, the cargo untouched and only a
squawking parrot aboard.
An examination of their records led
the commerce department otftolalw to
believe that a total of five ahipa have
mysteriously disappeared off of Cape
Hatteras during the last few months.
This Is In addition to the wrecking of
the Schooner Dcerlng. which ran
ashore. A hastily scribbled note In a
bottle said that the schooner Deertng
had been captured by an olllburnlng
clur and that its crew waa captured
and handcuffed aa prisoners.

in the discovery of the disappearance

This vessel started on a trip. Tho
