THE HISSIONABIES AND THE HEATHEN
In Jauuarj 1874 tho brig Leonora
commanded by tbo notorious Bully
Hayof made Singelap or MAs
kills Island ono of tho numerous
atoll groups in the North Pacific to
buy turtlo and ship tho cocoanut oil
collected by a white trader whom
ho had landed there on a former
eruise through tho Caroline Archi
pelago As with his supercargo he
was being pulled ashoro in his boat
to tho beach he notod with surprise
that not a single nativo was visible
On the boaeh ho wbb mot by his
trador
Whats tho matter here asked
tho burly captain
Everythings tho matter ropliod
tho trader tho missionary lug from
Honolulu has beon here Sho land
ed two Hawaiian teachers with their
wires all the people became Christ
iaus right nway aud built a church
and now theyve all got measles or
something and are dying like rotten
sheep Come and look
Tho villago of Fingelap consisted
of a thick cluster of pandauus
thatohed huts situated on the vergo
of the beach about twenty feet
above high water mark and sur
rounded by a dense foreBt of coco
palms on three sides As tho white
man walked towards it tho trader
told Hayes that the mission brie had
landod a boat load of clothing
which bad been distributed among
the peoplo by tho teachers A week
later tho disease appearod
Entering the village they were
met by two of tho head men wear
ing European clothing hitherto the
natives of Pingelap had worn merely
a grass airiri or petticoat girdle
The men shook hands with Hayes
and his superoargo aud aBked them
to enter their house tho rest of the
people once so light and animatod
sat and stared at thorn with
apathotio indifference Six months
before every soul on tho island had
swarmed off to the ship to welcome
Hayes now they scarce Boomed to
have energy enough left to anewer
him as he called to many of them
by name Entering tho houso the
white mon saw lying on the floor
two bodieB wrapped in mats roady
for burial Tho head mau said they
were thoBO of a woman and a boy
who had died two days ago already
a dreadful odour weighted the at
mosphere of the house and tho
white men retreated quickly The
two persons had died of tho now
sickness the head man said Sixty
others had died before thorn and
now every day four or five more died
Leaving the head mans house
Hayes visited noarly every other
dwelling in the villago In mora
than half of them woro either dead
or dying people and oh to even
peer in through tho doorways was
horrible horrible for many of the
bodies had been awaiting burial for
a week And yet the living mem
bers of these death stricken families
ate drank and slept in the same
house
Presently the two Hawaiian
ers attended by a following of
Pingelapese mot Hayes They car
ried Bibles in their hands and told
him that they had just been read
ing the Burial Service
Where aro you burying theso
peoplo asked Hayes
There they replied pointing to
a collection of opon sided cooking
huts distant about fifty yards
Hayes walked oyor to tho spot an
open sandy piece nf ground sur
rounded by the little onok shodi
The graveB woro yory thipk
Are tho graves deep asked tho
supercargo who already felt deadly
ill
Oh yes they aro deep very deep
nearly half a fathom 3ftl That
one with the big mound was that of
Plnik Pinik was a big fat man and
so wo had to heap the soil over him
But wo havo read tho service over
every one
HayeB asked them if they thought
that roading tho Burial Servico
would keep tho bodies from pollut
ing the air and breeding a fresh
peitilenoo Thoy did not know but
I did know that unless tho Service
was read over all those who died
thoy would go to hell
Returning to tho head maus house
Hayes called tho peoplo together
aud urged thorn to do two things
burn their villago aud all tho cloth
ing which had beon given to them
by the toothers and build a new
village on Takai ono of the other
islets of tho atoll for there thu
trade wind blow through tbo forest
all day and night And then ho
said if more pooplo died thoy should
bury them in deep very doep graves
If you do not do this then there
will not bo one of you left in thirty
days from now Have you ever
known this cickneBS before
No they answored it was a
strange new sickness to them but
had beon sent to them by God as a
punishmont for so long living in
heathenism
Who told you this said HayeB
quickly
Tho teachors told us
Hayes made a few vigorous re
marks to tho teachers and thou
turned away in disgust and walked
quickly to tho boat bockoning to
the head mon to come with him
Half an hour later he sent thorn on
shore again with such medioine and
provisions as ho could spare Then
as soon aB his trador had brought
off the oil bo had collected and his
personal effects tho wickedjfree
hooter turned tho Leonoras hoad
away from tho diseao stricken isl
and and sailed westward whero the
heathen woro still healthy Pall
