v Out 105 Years of Active Service
After 106 years of faithful service, some
of which were spent for the United States
as a privateer In the war of 1812, the little
schooner Polly has been deoorated with a
bronje tablet which haa been placed on Its
deck house and which ws unveiled by the
National Society of United States Daugh
ters of 1812, at New Tork.
The Polly, built In Amesbury, Mass, In
1806, two years before the first steamer,
served In the war of 1811 under Jedldlah
Upton, master, with a crew of about sixty
men, armed with eighteen carronadea. It
made a number of successful cruUes, sail
ing from Salem, lta home port, and attack
ing British merchantmen wherever It could
It captured In all eleven primes, and
was then In turn captured by the British
frigate Pheobe, fourteen guna. Captain
HUUard, toward the cloaa of the war. It
ran alongside the frigate In a dense fog,
and before It could make off was under
the guna of the great ship. Captain Upton
haa no recourse but to surrender, which
he did, throwing over hi guns, however,
before tns British prize crew boarded him.
Captain Upton and some of his crew
were taken aboard the Phoebe, and were
kept prisoners for seven months, until the
end of the war. The English prise crew
placed upon the Folly, themselves victims
of the press gang, ao the story goes, frat
ernise with the remainder of the Tankee
crew, and hauling down the British flag
turned American prlvateersmen, but the
Polly without Its guns could do nothing,

Illlllard at a dinner returned to Captain
Upton his sword and made him a present

Hostesses at dinner must put guests of
honor at the right of themselves and the
hosts, even If the usual sitting places are
changed to suit the occasion. When a mar
ried woman entertains at dinner she puts
at her right the husband of the woman
whom they so wish to honor, andthe wife
must be at the right of the host To place
the guests of honor in any other position
is to deprive them entirely of the distinc
With a round table the matter of seat
In guests becomes simple, for there is
no head and no foot and the desired posi

quently the hostess does not have a seat
directly opposite to the host, but in a drcto
this is not conspicuous.
With an oval or square table and eight
guests the arrangement becomes compli
cated. Three persons on a side means that
the hostess must abandon hex usual place
or she will have two womeu together and
two men, thajt which nothing could show
greater Ignorance. There is nothing fur
the hosteas then to do but to change her
position, leaving her husband in that which
he always occupies.
