CHAPTER XVI Contimied.
The island was soon reached and
the m nn taken apliore. The morning
was crisp and cold and a fire of drift
wood wan kindled for the comfort of
the wounded man and his companions.
As the clay lagged away the man grew
worse. Dan was his mot attentive
nnrse. In the afternoon he persuaded
his companions that it would be better
to take the wounded man to his home.
They agreed upon this but they did
not know what to do with their pris
oner. On the southside they could not
hold him, and if they left him on the
island he might be compelled to re
main for teveral days without assist
ance. Tbey wanted him to accompany
them to thier homes, but Dan had mat
ten of more importance demanding his
attention on the north aide. He told
them to leave him on the island and he
would take his chances on reaching
The fishermen pulled out with tbelt
wounded companion, reluctantly leav
ing Dan be.iind.
Throughout the day Lapham walked
op and down the island viewing his
Iriendsand enemies as they lay on
(heir oara in threatening attitudes.
II managed, however, to keep con
cealed behind the driftwood from bia
enemies, while he was too far away to
be distinguished by his friends.

sort of prison had they carried out their
original plana and had removed every
ambiance of craft from the place.
Besides the island had always been
sort of neutral ground and since the
quarrel Lad begun, neither side at
tempted to occupy it and all fishing ap
paratus and supplies bad been taken
way by the respective owners. .
Aa night came on, Dan became more
anilom to reach the north shore. He
wondered how many of his friends had

A terrlnc storm was rising to sweep
the river and bay. The black horizon
to the southwest told this. The loar
ing clash of watera on the bar spoke it
in so many sounds. The moaning
Winds In the boughs of the tall trees
on the hills sung it in dismal notes.
The angry surges on the beach hissed
out like the warning of an adder. The
gloomy mist which surrounded old
Cape Disappointment lighthouse hunj
like pall over the river and bay.
Yet the water waa dotted with the
boats of the heedless fishermen. They
had seen the sign thousand times
nd had never known them to fail.
Tbey knew that no frail craft could be
reasonably expected to survive such
storm M was fndi ted tonight. It
was the night after the battle between
the fishermen. It was the night upon
which Bankala had started out to sea
to find Dan Lapham. It was the
night upon which Dan Lapham left
Band island upon ratt of driftwood
for the noith shore.
This was typical night storm at tbe
mouth of tbe Columbia. Tbe people
of the village bad been on the alert,
kindling beacon fires and walking the
beach to render aid to their friends on
The morning broke forth with many
stories of hardships, disaster and death.
The fishermen on either side had been
slow to yield their position. In spite
of the fact that they were warned in
many ways of the approaching storm,
they stood in the teeth of danger from
force of habit. The southsiders were
determined to destroy tbe objection
able traps and the northslders were
firm in standing by the defense of their
But all had eventually been com
pelled to yield to the elements. The
northslders had been driven one by one
to the north shore, while the south
sidera bad been compelled to take ref
uge on the island. They had not the
time to make it to tbe south shore.'
Fishermen on both sides, it is true,
had remained too long. They bad
been caught in the angry tea and
dragged like captives toward the bar.
Tbe dawn had found the life savers
active. It was the same old story.
Tbey succeeded in rescuing some of the
men from watery grave. A few had
gone over the bar never to return.
Some of these had been swept away
long before the life saver could see
their way to go to the rescue.
The wind did not lull until well np in
the day. The southsiders nestled
along the shores of Band island, like
so many water bound animals. Tbe
northsiders rushed up and down the
bank looking for missing one and pre
paring to return to the defense of their
traps so soon aa the wavei should sub
side. Women were wringing their hands
over the loss of their dear ones and
children were crying for father tbey
would never see again. Tbe loss of
life was so common among the fisher
men that only those actually bereaved
bore sad hearts on such occasions,
the sudden making of widows and or
phans had been going on for years, for
every storm claimed lta victim. A
heavy wave, swamped boat, a lost
fisherman, told common story. It
was expected. Those who battled with
death knew that they must eventually
"Where 1 Bankala?" wa asked of
tbe fishermen a they arrived ashore
throughout the night.
"Where is Bankala?" asked Dan
Lapham when he had visited her cabin
and found it vacant.
"Where 1 Bankala?" waa the ques
tion passed from lip to lip throughout
Dan Lapham had steered his crude
raft straight lor the north shore. He
had been buffeted by the waves, It Is
true, and bad been carried far to the
south, but fortune favored him and he
had batted into the boats of his
friends who had taken him ashore. But
not one of all the men returning had
seen Bankala. They were Indignant
that she should have been permitted
to leave the village,. x
"We have no time for grieving over
the lost," said old Beadog, walking up
ana down the beach like an angry
lion. "See, the men on the island
are in action and will soon be upon our
traps. To your boats, men, to your
boats! We must protect those traps
witu our uveal"
It was late in the afternoon. ' The
storm had again subsided. The men
on the island decided to take advant
age of the northslders while they were
ashore and destroy their trap.
i ne norinsiiier were quick, to tee
this and hustling their arms and am
munition aboard they leaped into the
boats along the beach and rowed with
all their might to the defense of their
I he southBlders also started out
briskly to oeat them to the trap. The
latter had slight advantage In die
tance but their opponent were relresh-
ed by warm meal and many of them
had secured few hours sleep.
The small fleet on either side was di
vided into squadrons a if by common
arrangement, and while one squad made
for the defense of a group of trans along
the line which stretched up and down
the river channel on the bay aide, a
squad from the other side started for
the same point to destroy them.
In the meantime teiniorcements were
gathering on the aouth shore, lor the
eouthslders outnumbered the men on
the north, and war to finish waa now
more imminent than ever.
"Will those soldiers never arrive?"
was the question old Beadog asked
himself as he directed his men to bat
tle for the traps.
Bankala Listens to the Plotter.
Bankala had a hard battle with the
surf but she reached the traps former!
tended by Dan Lapham before the
storm waa at it heigh th. Dan, of
course, was not near t lie place. The
wind wa already raging and the white
caps were multiplying at rapid rate
and leaping higher and higher.
At ber back th sea wis boiling like
a caldron while to the south it was
not so much disturbed. Her home lay
across the raging sea while Band Island
lay to the south. It was this great up
heavel of sand and the driftwood upon
ita surface that broke the storm to
some extent and yet left means of es
cape for Bankala.
But ahe would not have returned to
hei home at thia time had the sea been
as calm as an Inland lake. Bhe had
started out on mission and this would
she complete with woman's deter-
ruination. She was looking for Dan
Lapham. Her atrong and handsome
young friend had aided her in fishing
the traps when her aged companion
was unable to assist. He had also, on
that very morning, left her money
with which to buy necessary supplies;
be had promised her that Ringwold
should not go to the poor house; and
above all there was an undefined feel
ing in her heart for tbe young man
which only comes to woman once in
Bankala did not understand this and
would have blushed bad it been ex
plained. It was tbe same old story
which has caused the joys, sorrows,
disappointments and happiness since
the days of Adam and Eve.
While clinging to the piling which
held the netting of Lapham' fishtrap,
to steady her boat, Bankala could aee
that the water waa rapidly ruing and
that each flood dashed higher above the
mark made by the former wave. The
billows grew darker and more sullen
while the whitecapa looked like great
animals leaping at random in tbe di
rection of tbe bar.
Before it was too late she turned her
boat toward 'the island, where ahe
landed without accident. But ah was
just in time, for old Neptune' work
farther out at sea was telling and
great waves from tbe mighty deep came
rolling over tbe bay, converting it into
mad, seething thing of destruction.
The rain began to fall in torrent.
The wind blew with such force as to
send the cold drops like heavy shots
In slanting course through tbe air.
These struck the thinly clad girl with
a force that made her shiver with pain
When cast upon her own resources
in time of danger, woman i said to be
superior to man in courage and endur
ance. Before she resigns herself to
fate, she employs every mean in her
power to thwart lta disaster. If ahe
cannot turn its couise, she goes with
it as companion. Death Is thua
made less bitter and an example is
given to the world.
Bankala dragged her boat fai as
she could and then tied the long line
attached to its prow to limb of tree
which had been cast far upon the
sand. She began to look about her for
a) abetter. Bhe remembered an old
fisherman' camp farther np tbe is
land, and taking the provision which
she had prepared for Dan, she made
her way to the shack. -
