records ought to settle It. for there was
meeting of the board of selectmen
that day. and Asaph has been" town
clerk In Bayport since the summer be
fore the Baptist meeting bouse burned.
But on the record the date, in Asaph's
handwriting, stands "Tuesday, May
30, 180 and. as it happens. May 10
9t that year fell on Wednesday, not
Tuesday at all.
Kerurab Bangs, who keeps "the per
fect boarding bouse," says it was
Tuesday, because she remembers they
had fried cod cheeks and cabbage that
flay, as they have every Tuesday, and
Bother Mr. Tidditt nor Bailey Bangs,
KeCnrah's husband, was on hand when
the dinner bell ran. Keturah says
he in certain It was Tuesday, because
he remembers smelling the boiled
cabbage as she stood at the side door,
locking op the vroad to see if either
Asaph or Bailey was coming. As for
Bailey, - he says he remembers being
hta to dinner and his wife's "star tin'
to heave a broadsides into him" be
cause of it, but be doesn't remember
what day It was.
At any rate, whether Tuesday or
Wednesday, It is certain- that It was
quarter past 12,- according to the clock
presented to the Methodist society by
the Hon. Heman Atkins, when Asaph
Tidditt came down the steps of the
town hall after the selectmen's meet
ing and saw Bailey Bangs waiting for
hiru on the opposite side of the road.
"Hello. Asel" hallod Mr. v Bangs.

"1 eallate she -will.' he said uneasily.
"Tell you the truth, Ase, I was up to

and some more of 'em drifted in, and
V got talkln' about the chances of

thing or nother, and 'twas , later'n I
thought twas 'fore I knew it"
The appropriation from the govern
Boent which was to- deepen- and widen
.or harbor here at Bayport was a
very vital topic among us just then.
Heman Atkins, the congressman from
our district, bad promised to do his
beat for tbe appropriation and bad for
time been very sanguine of securing
it Recently, however, he bad not
' been Quits as hopeful.
"What's Cap'n Josiah think about
the chances T" asked Asaph eagerly.
"Well, sometimes be thinks TTes' and
3aen. again be thinks 'No,' " replied
Bailey. "He says, of course. If Heman

Ase Tidditt." he cried, "do yon
mean to tell me you've had a letter
from Heman AtUrtos from Washin'
ton?" ,
Asaph nodded portentously.'
"Yes, sir," he declared. "A letter
from the Hon. Heman G. Atkins of
Washin'ton, D. C., come to me last
night. I read it afore I turned in."
"You did! And never said nothin
about it?"
"Why should I say anything about
!t? 'Twas addressed to me as town
clerk and was. concernin' a matter to
be took up with the board of s'lect
xnen. I ain't In the habit of hollerin'
town affairs through a speakin' trum
pet Folks that vote for me town
meeHn' day know that I guess. Angle
Phinney says to me only yesterday,
'Mr. Tidditt,' ' says she, 'there's one'
thing I'll say for you you don't talk.' "
"Humph!" Bailey snorted indignant
ly. "She thought 'twas a -good thing
not to talk, hey? She did?. Well, by
m?jhty! You never get no chance to
! up with Angle.
Her ma was the same
; bred of cats. What did .Heman say
'. abot the 'appropriation? : Is he goin'
to get It?"
Mr. Tidditt paused before replying,
i Then, bending over, he whispered in
his chum's ear:
"He never said, .one word about the
appropriation. Bailey, not one wordl
He wanted to know if we'd got this
year's taxes on the Whittaker place
and If we hadn't what was we goin
to da about it Bailey, between you
and me and the Tnlzzenmast, Heman
Atkins wants to get a-hold , of that
place the worst way." . .
"He does! He does! For. the land
sakes, ain't he got property enough al
ready? Ain't a a -palace like that
enough for one man, without wantin'
to buy a rattletrap like that?"
The first "that" was emphasized by
a brandished but reverent left hand,
the second by a derisively pointing
right The two. friends bad reached
the crest of the long tlope leading Up
from the town hall. On one side of
the road stretched the imposing front
age, of the "Atkins estate,"- with its
Iron fence and stone posts; on the .oth
er slouched the weed grown, tumble
down desolation of the "Cy Whittaker
place." The contrast was that of opu
lent prosperity and poverty stricken
neglectT
M Heman was our leading citizen, our
representative In Washington and the
town's philanthropist - He gave the.'.
Atkins memorial window- and the .At
kins tower clock to the Methodist
church. The Atkins town pump, also
his gift, stood before the town hall.
The Atkins portrait In . the Bayport
Ladies library was much admired, and
the size of the Atkins fortune was the
principal subject 'of.- conversation at
sewing circle, at the table of "the per
fect boarding house," around the stove
In Simmons' store or wherever Bay
porters were' used to gather. .
The "Cy Whittaker place" faced the
Atkins estate . from the opposite side
of the main road, but it was the gen
eral opinion that It ought to be asham
ed to face It Originally It had enjoyed
the dignified seclusion afforded by a
white picket fence "with square gate
posts, and the path to Its seldom used
front door had been guarded by rigid
lines of box hedge. This, however,
was years ago, before the second Cap
tain Cy Whittaker died and before the
Howes family turned it into the Sea
Sight House, a hotel for summer
boarders. .
The Howeses ."improved" the house
and grounds.-." They tore down the
picket fence, uprooted the box hedges,
hung a sign over the sacred front door
and built a wide veranda under the
parlor windows. They took boarders
for five consecutive summers. v Then
they gave up the unprofitable under-'
taking, returned to Concord, N. H.,
their native city, and left the Cy Whit
taker place to bear' the ravages ,-of
Bayport winters and' Bayport small
boys as best it might
For years it stood empty. The se
lectmen would have "liked to tear it
down, but they cpuld not because it
was private property, having been pur
chased from the Howes heirs by the
third Cy Whittaker, Captain Cy's only
son, who ran away to sea when he was
sixteen years old and was disinherited
and cast off by tbe proud old skipper
in consequence. Bach March . Asaph
Tidditt In his official capacity as town
clerk had been accustomed to receive
an envelope with a South American
postmark, and in that envelope was a
draft on a Boston banking .house for
the sum due . as taxes on the "Cy
Whittaker place." The drafts were
signed "Cyrus M. Whittaker."
But this particular year, the year in
which this chronicle, begins, no draft
bad been received. Asaph waited' a
few weeks and then wrote to the ad
dress indicated by the postmark. His
letter was unanswered- Next to the
harbor appropriation .the question of
what should be dqne about the "Cy
Whittaker place" . filled Bayport's
'thoughts that spring. ':
"T-sS in the world," repeated Bai
ley, "does Heman. want of a shebang
like that? "Ain't he got enough al
ready?" His friend shook his bead.
" 'Pears hot," he said. "I judge it's
this way, Bailey Heman, he's a proud
man"
"Well, ain't he got a right to be
proud? Cal'late you and mo d be proud
if we was ablexto carry as much sail
as he does, wouldn't wet ; " ,
' "Yes, I guess like we would. But
you needn't get red In the face and
J -inqur.biler Just because,. I said
that. I" ain't flndln' fault "with "He
man. I'm only tellin' you. He's
proud, as I said, and his wife"
"She's dead this" four year: Wha
are you resurrecting her for?"
"Land! You're peppery as a West
Injy omelet this mo rain'. Let me
alone till I've finished. His wife when
she was alive, she was proud too. And
his daughter Alicia, she's eight year
old now, and by and by she'll be
grown up Into a high toned young wo
man. Well, Heman Is fursigbted, and
I s'pose likely he's thlnkin' of the days
when there'll be young rich fellers
senators and and well, counts and
lords, maybe crulsin down here
courtln' her. I presume he don't want
those swells to sit on bis front piazza
and see the crows buildln nests In tbe
ruins acrost the road. If there's a sale
for taxes he wants to be fust bidder.
Then when the place Is vhia he- can
tear down or rebuild, just as be sees
fit See?"
"Yes, I see. Well, I feel about that
the way Joe Dimick felt when he
heard the doctor? had told Elviry Pep
per she must stop singln' In the choir
or lose her voice altogether, "Which
ever happens H be an Improvement
says Cap'n Joe, and whatever Heman
does 1) help the Whittaker place. '
What did you decide at the meetin' ?",
"Nothin.' We can't decide yet . We
ain't sure about the law, and we want
to wait a spell, anyhow. But I know
how 'twill end. Atkins I1 get the place.
He always gets what be wants. He
man does." ."- . v :
"Well," sighed Mr. Bangs, "so that'll
be the end of the old Whittaker place,
bey? Sho, things change In a feller's
lifetime, don't they? Yon and me can
remember, Ase, when Cap'n Cy, Whit
taker was one of the biggest men we
had In this town. So was his dad
afore him, the Cap'n Cy that built tbe
house. I wonder .the looks of things
here now don't bring them two up
out of their graves. Do you remem
ber young Cy-!-Whit we used to call
him, or Heddy Whit 'count of his
red hair?" , - " A '
"Remember Whit? Well. I should
aay I did. He was a holy terror
yes, . sir! Wan't no ' monkey shines
or didos cut up In this town that
young Cy wan't into. Fur's that goes,
you and me was in 'em, too. Bailey.
We was all holy terrors then. -. Young
ones nowadays ain't got the spunk we
used to have." ,
His friend chuckled.
That's so," he, declared, "that's
so. . Whit was a good hearted boy, too,
but full of tbe Old Scratch and 'as sot
In his ways as his dad. and if Cap'n
Cy wan't sot "then there ain't no sot
sess. 'You'll go to college and be a
parson,' says the cap'n. Ill go to sea
and be a sailor, same 'as you done,'
says Whit And he did, too, run away
one night took the packet, to Boston
and shipped aboard an Australian clip
per. Cap'n Cy didn't go after nun to
fetch him home. No . slr-ee not a
fetch. Sent htm a letter plumb to
Melbourne, and, says he: Youve
made your bed; how; lay in it Don't
you never dast to come back to me or
your ma, be says. And Whit-didn't;
he wan't that kind."
"Pretty nigh killed the old lady
Whlfs - ma that did,", mused Asaph.
"She died a little spell afterward. And
the old man pined away, too, but he
never give In or asked the boy to come
back. Stubborn as all get out to the
end be was and willed the place, all
he had left, to them Howes folks.
And a nice mess they made of it
Young Cy be"
"Young Cy!" ",. interrupted Bailey.
"We're always callin'. him "young Cy,
and yet when you come to. think of it
he must be pretty nigh fifty-five now,
most as old as you and I be. Wonder
if he'll ever come back here?" y
"You bet he won't!" was the oracular
reply. - "He's made all kinds of money,
they say; out of hides and such. What
he ever bought his dad's old place for
I can't see. He'll never come back
to these common, one horse latitudes,
now you mark my word on that!"'
Bailey chuckled again.
. "We was a spunky, daredevil lot in
the old days, wan't we, Ass?" he said.
"Spunk was kind of born in us, as you
might say. And even now we're"
- The Atkins tower clock boomed once,
a solemn, dignified stroke. Mr. Tid
ditt and his companion' started and
looked at each other.
' "Godfrey scissors!" gasped Asaph.
"Is that half past 127'
Mr. Bangs pulled a big worn silver
watch from his' pocket and glanced at
the dial. ,
, "It is!" he moaned.. "As sure'a you're
orn it is! WeTe kept Eeturys din
ner waltin' twenty minutes. You and
me are in for It -now, Ase Tidditt!
Twenty minutes late! . She'll skin us
alive!"
Mr. Tidditt did not pause to answer,
but plunged headlong down the bill at
a race horse gait. Bailey pounding at
his heels. For "born daredevils," self
i confessed, they .were a nervous and
apprehensive pair.
The "perfect boarding house" Is sit
uated ' a . quarter of a mile beyond
Whittaker's hill, nearly opposite the
Baiters homestead. The sign, hung on
the pole by the front gate, reads.
"Bayport Hotel. Bailey Bangs Pro
prietor," but no one 'except the stran
ger in Bayport accepts that sign seri
ously. When, owing to an unexpected
change in the administration at Wash
ington, Mr. "Bangs was obliged to re
linquish his position as our village
postmaster his wife came to tbe res
cue with the proposal that they open
a boarding house. "Whatsoe'er you
find to do,' quoted Keturah at sewing
circle meeting, "do It then, with all
your migbtr If when I'm laid to rest
they can put on to my gravestone 'She
run tbe perfect boarding bouse 111
oe sausnea.
This remark and subsequent similar
declarations were widely quoted, and.
therefore, though casual visitors may
refer to the "Bayport hotel," to us na
tlves tbe Bangs residence is always
"Keturah's perfect boarding house."
As for the sign's affirmation of Mr.
Bangs "proprietorship, that is consid
ered the cream of the Jolie. The idea
of nfeek, baldheaded little Bailey pos
ing as proprietor of anything while
his wife is on deck, tickles Bayport's
sense of humor.
