It occurred to ConiKau, as he ladled hot water over himself from an enormous earthenware jar, that the. quarrel between himself and his neighbor had been, to say the loast of it, ill-timed. Any time of the day or nisht Zaxlmnu and hia pof-ao of head hunters might swoop ilown upon the bungalows of theso lonely whites, and ho ecunely considered .lacobson big-hearted enoiiL 'h to buy the hatchet in an emergency. Kor every other reason but. this, he felt profoundly thankful that he had brought the affair to a head. This .lacobson deliberately had invaded his territory; he wo* on the fringe of a zone where agents of a hostile pow^r heaped c^oais upon the ever-smouldering volcano of religious fanaticism; two long, weary miles of rubber-planted ' slopes stretched between him and the bungalow* of his first assistant. He could not stomach the Idea ot an endless planting and re-planting ot the disputed barrier. It was for theso reasons that he discarded tho habitual sarong and singlet he usually affected for his solitary evening meal, and put on riding breeches of cord and stout leather leggings. He resolved to put his case before Rrowning. the l3. O. at Putatun. and get the matter straightened out ouce and for All.
