THE WASHINGTON CRITIC, TTTlTRSn AY EVENING, JANUARY 10, 1880.
WA SHIN GTON CRITIC
A POSSUM-BONE UW.
I Wns nintuie tho mountnlns of
East Tennessee. I lmtl tidtto thitlicr to
writo something concerning tho tingllfili
colony limited by Hughes, tlio Kngllsh
novelist, lull, ljuford nlnciitilg tho pined,
lost my -way. After ascending ninny
paths so steep Mini t wns comnellctl to
lend my horse, niid Roltig down many
dnngerotts ''dlMito' I came upon a liltlo
log liouso nitiintcti lti a munll vnllcy.
When I had flliouled, n rather old man,
liitirip-utiolildui'ud unit, knock-knecil,
camu out, and after regarding mo cur
lotmly -Invited mo to gctilowrt and como
in. A wlthered-loohlng woman, smok
ing a cob-plpo, and a lank girl, with
Triiunt'gtrnw colored hair, Hat near tho
lire. llotlt of them jumped up on seeing
no. Tho girl bowed nwfenrdly and tho
womrttt, Blinking a large yellow cat out of
u oltltlr, Said:
"Set down. You look.llko you mout
bo putty nlch fagged out. Sis, fetch
I 6nt down and tho girl brought mo a
leaking gourd of water, poured most of
the wnter on mo, blushed, and snickered.
Tlio old mun BiiorleU and tho old woman
declared that bIiico Mm war nobody iu
that neighborhood had any "raisin'."
"Whnr mout you bo from?" tho old
man n( length asked.
I told him that I was from Nashvlllo,
mid that I lmd been sunt to writo nn arti
cle on tho Hughes colony. Ho had novor
henrd of the colouv.
"I am sorry," 1 replied, "for I had
hoped that you might diiect md to tlio
"Whltt Is it, nnyhow7" ho asked.
When I had explained ho added: "TrV
in' ter fetch a lot uv folks. In heto, eh?
Wall, 1 wantor toll yor tlint-tluir'fi about
enough hero now. Qlttin' crowded, I tell
you. Fnm'ly settled up tho holler Inst
spring nn' skecred tho dcor away fitlui
thnr. It nln't right, I keii toll you, nu"
tlinr oughter bo a law ugih it."
Shortly at tor dark I wrts sent to bod in
tho Hhnckly loft. All tho heat from. tho
II ro enmo up into tho loft nnd nhnost
roasted mcj and, when tho tiro went ottt,
1 thought I would freeze. A heavy show
fell during tlio night, and at breakfast
tho old niali told mo thnt I needn't hopo
to get out of tho valley for n dny or two.
This was, indeed, a cheerless announce
ment, for already tho dreariness of tho
place had begun to oppress mo painfully.
After breaktast I looked around for a
book, but none could be fouhd. I asked
tho gUl If sho had ovon an old news
paper. She. blushed and answered thnt
sho novcr fooled nway her timo with
Buch things. Then sho took a chow of
tobacco nnd rooked herself complacently,
lly tliis time I had noticed thnt there
was, on tho pnrt of tho old man nnd his
wlfo, n disposition to leavo mo alouo
with tho girl; nnd glancing through tho
smoky pnno of glass I saw Hint to ac
complish thiii purpose tkoy wore stand
ing out in tho snow. I turned to tho girl
nnd asked her why her parents did not
Sho blushed, snickered, and then said:
"Waitin1 fur you tor make ther 'range
ments." "What nrrnngomonts?"
"Ho'll tell yo."
My curiosity was aroused. Tho old
innn soon came in. Tho girl wont out.
"Wall," said ho, ''nil fixed, is it?"
"All what llxcdV"
"Tho niarriagol" I 'gasped. "What
"Yourn nn' Sis's."
"Old man, I don't undcrstnnd you."
"Wall. then. I'llmako it plain enough.
'Bout a week ngo wo hnd 'poasum fur
dinner; an' Sis sho tuck his undor-tnw
nn' put It up thar over tho do,' See?"
I looked up and saw tho hone. "But
what of that?" I asked.
"Wall, I'll tell vou that, too. Jest at
this timo uv the year tho jaw-bono of a
'posbum that was caught in a 'simmon
tree, put over tho do', mean n great deal,
fur tho lav in this hero neighborhood
eays that tho gal that puts it thnr hns ter

that passes under tho bone. W'y, sah,
it's gospul hero. Tor-morror mawuin'
suit you? Lemmo tell you, son, you'll
ilnd.Sis ter bo as hustlin' a woman as
you want to seo. Sho married u good-lur-ndthlu'
feller somo timo ago, an' wo
was all glad wlfeu ho was killed. Ter
morrer suit you?"
I told the' old man that such ncourso
was impossible, but, Pointing to a gun,
ho said that ho reckoned not. Then,
calling tho old woman and tlio girl, ho
"Wall, it's all fixed. Tobo and Sam
will bo ovor hero in tho mornln,' nn' I
ken scna ono ov them airter tho preacher
an' thodockyments." Tho girl, lank, re
pulsive creature, came forward und tried
to put her arms around my neck. Just
then a man enmo slouching in. "This is
my son, Bill," said tho old man. "Bill,
this feller (pointing to me) was tho fust
ter go under tho 'possum-hone, nn' now
he 'Tows that ho won't marry her."
"Wall, I reckon ho will." Wlllinin ox
claimcd. "Tlio law uv this hero npigh
borliood kaln'tbo ovorthrowed by no
siclvor lookiu' chap as ho Is."
They may have been honest in their
respect for tho vcnorablu, custom pro
sided ovor by tlio under Jnw-bono of
tho 'possum, "but I am certain that ono
gllmpso of thot girl would havo dilvon
