There was another interesting group, com
Mi.ed of lioy between the age o! four-and-a-half
and hevenycar. One was a negro named
Tony, six years old black a tar, homely as an
nix:. The others were all white. One of
these, "lluck," was a chubby boy of five with
heckled face, red cheek and white li.ur,
These two and tile me or six others were
standing 01 sitting in evciy, imaginable
poiture indicative of awe, intercut and
fear. Tony wa diessed simply in J pair o
hi father's pantaloons cut off at the knees.
Consequently the waisl lund came quite under

arms deep in hi vest pockets, ikmamd :
"Wh-what ycr suckin )cr thumb fcr!"
lluck snatched the thumb from his month.
ami looked ashamed. Tony puisucd hi ad
vantage by remarking tauntingly i
"Vou was skycril, too !"
"I wasn't, " protested lluck.
"Yj)uu whs, wh-when he chopped, the

".S.vd me, did yer?"
lluck did not deign a second nod.
What jei see?" ietited Tony.
The white Uiy took the thumb from his
mouth it had again found (is way there and
"Vou got pale,"
The absurdity of the Idea was so apparent
that even the slow cnctralion of tne little
black Imp was not long In delecting It.
"Me got pale?"
A nod. The thumb prevented utterance.

"Don't it hurt?"
"What they hang people for, TonJ ?"

"What, with a rope?"
"Oh, er ropel" .
"Waal, doati ycr know?
"Den t ain't cr-gwlne to tell yer!"

"I.e' hang Tony," he slid.
The propodlion was hailed with delight.

problem by suggesting a tree. There was no.

They soon found an appropriate pot for the
execution. It was at the head of a deep and
shady ravine, walled in on three id.s by pre
cipitous bluffs. Ascent or descent was ex
trcmely perilous, a it could be accomplished
only by clinging to the stem and root of
bushe that lined the wall in many places.
The boy clambered down, and discovered n
tree on which could be successfully tested the
efficacy of capital punishment. It wai a stun
ted, ciooked magnolia, leaning far to one side
and hiving a branch that ran out horirontally,
aliout eight feet from the ground. "They dan
ced around the tree in the highest enjoyment
of the delightful preparation, which were con
ducted by I'uck, Tony, and two or three oth
ersnone more happy than Tony himself.
They ticil one end of the rope to the limb, and
secured the other round Tony s neck,
A tremendous obstacle now obtruded itself,
they had no trap. The improvised gallows
was a failure.
"Now, look-a-hyar,"said Tony; "I don't
want tcr be h-hung in dis hyar style. Kf I
ain't cr-gwinc let drap, dey ain' no fun."
"Vou can jump ofTn the limb," suggested
This solution of the difficulty was received
wilh the most dcmostratlvc joy. Tony sat up
on the limb, the rope around Ins neck.
"All right, Tony," said one of the leaders;
but wait till you say anything. Now make
a speech, you knows"
"There ain't no ladies, Tony."
"Waal, dom I hi tcr say h-hlt an) way?
Ladlea'n gemblem! I wants tcr M res? yer wid

"Talked about his mother."

was a knife, and give Tony particular Instruc

the imaginary cord that held the imaginary
trigger. The boy then looked around solemnly
made a grand sweep with hi aim, and, with
a strong blow uxn the trunk of the tree,
sprung the trap.
True to the workine perfection of Ihc machi
nery, Tony was launched Into space,
A stiange and unacnuntable thing had hap
pened. Tony found himself suwling umu
the ground. He scrambled to his feet with a
look of triumph th?l ill-accorded with the as
tonishment visible in the faces of the spectators.
They had committed the enor of allowing loo
much rope for the distance.

jerk, and then snaped and threw him violently
upon the ground. He slowly and with diffi

though his neck was stiffeneil painfully wilh a
cold, hi c) es staring as If he hail seen a hideous
spectre, his mouvh drawn with pain, and the
tears trickling down his checks,
"Confound that ropel" exclaimed a boy,
ltuck rrgarded Tony silently,
" Wlial the matter, Tony?" asked another
boy, as he noticed the icmarkah'e expiession
in the negro's face.
Tony wa slilirg on the ground, carefully
feeling his neck all around, and was unable to
peak for ihe suppressed sob that choked him,
He ruc to his fest, looking ruefully tboul, Ihe
boy enjoying his discomfiture immoderately,
" U' iry it again," said lUick.
"No, vou don't I " screamed the colored

choking out his life ; but there seenud to tc

a lioy, There was no reply.
lluck, on being asked the question, nodded;
and, with his thumb in his mouih, never re

The poor little hanging wretch grew more

an' Spunky Sam didn't dare lo hit liini again ;

stranger. Ve sec, 1 wa'n't a goin' Icr hcv it
so, an' I was a lightin' oil' my perch. I'd been
n whittlin' a stick outer the tavern gate-post,
and I'd seed it all from fus' lo las' ; and I

moreover. Cur'us now 1 A body'd think tiral

Ulcss your soul, stranger, its jes the contrairy
way. Nulhln 'r other 'bout the hull thing I
never could onstand. Whether It's Ihe piety
thet hoo-doohs the luck, 'r the luck that goes
dead bang agin the piety, I never could
rightly make out. Depends on what I'm
pleased to call luck ? t call it ies what
the little Parson never got no sort o' holL of.
Neverrcept"the"one kind : Harif luck hard

run agin every pop.
Mlout thet hangin' business ? Oh, ay ! Well,

mcctin' an' n givin' up ihe tavcin bar. Ye see
the Parson was amazin' set agin liquor' an'
preach agin it, an' preach agin it, he did, till,
sink me, stranger, cf his preachin' didn't lay a
holt on Toncy to that extent ihet he turned
squar' 'round on the ole bar, an' heav ed the
O-bc-joyful out inter Ihe road, an' guv up the
hull thing, hard cider V all. Well, stranger,
tlicl was rough on the fellers thet lied palter
nized the ole bar, steddy by -jerks ever sense
'twas fust sot up, an' I'm free to say 'taint no
gret wonder ihey was riled. Hat they orter ha'
look their spile out outer Toney hisself, set I
ihen, an' scz I yit. Hut no ! The Parson sot
him up to il, they said. Toney 'd never in
creation a thunk all that pious swindle nut
hisself. Not nnother settlement short o' thirty
gnod mile, ye see, nnd, in consequence, not a
drap o' ihe O-be-joyful to be got short o' thet
journey. So they held that shctlin' up the
dccstrlck bar was a 'fraudin' on 'em oulcn ther
rights, in a manner.
I ain't a 'sputin' the sentiment, stranger. I
'low It comes rough on a man ihet hez been
used let vvcttin' o' his whistle rcglar as sun

stop-cock. An' 'taint in natur' nol to fro'h
some wher' thar's so much rilin' I but as I
said before they orler a look it outcn o' Toney
hisself. He wouldn't a turned pious an' jined
mcctin' cf he hedn't a wanted lo, an' nobody
couldn't a made him hist out all thet good
liquor el he hedn't sot his mind lo do tt. Hut
it was jest the little Parson's hard luck.
Outer him they pitched, in ihc dead o' night,
and drug him out o' bed and down into
Woody Hones Holler, an' swore iheyd choke
him till he'd promise lo injuce Toney ter set
