CHAPTER I
Such a Feud!

"Well, by the Great Catamaran! I think it's the most footle business I ever heard of! A regulation, clinker-built, angle-iron, sunk-hinge family feud, carried on by two women! Women! conducting a feud! They might as well conduct a bakery!"

"I daresay they could do even that! Women have been known to bake-with a fair degree of success!"

"Of course, of course,-but baking and conducting a bakery are not identical propositions. Women are all right, in their place,-which, by the way, is not necessarily in the home,-but a family feud, of all things, calls for masculine management and skill."
