tni-red out that it was a niece of
Carrie who heard that we was in
town through our son, Joshua. Waal,
it seems that Oarrb-'s niece had mar
ried a guy that hai a lot of money
and she wanted Carrie to come out
to her house and spend the evenin'.
Of course I didn't have no objections,
so my wife puts nn her things and
they was soon gone.

something awfu. It warn't nothin'
like 'Old Hundred' or any of them
pieces Carrie plays on the organ.

the musicians, and I started to leave

I guess I had walked about three
blocks when I run across a big build
in' what was all lit up in front.
There was a bunch of people goin'
in and at first I didn't know what it
was all about until finally I sees a big
sign over in the corner which read.
"She Loved. But He Moved Away.
The Greatest Melodrama of the Ace.''
And right below it was a picture of a
house. Some people come out and
started to talk, but 1 didn't know what
it was all aboiu. I reckon they was
tryin' to sell somethin' becuz there
was one feller with a Hack mustache

the way he talked., ' ''

she kept tellin' him to 'giveme back

got madder and madder, and all of a

says: 'I'll kill yuh now and then yuh
will never marry him. I didn't know
what the feller meant, and I was
durned if I could sit there and see all
those people let that feller threat that
girl the way he was doln'. Then she
screamed and I couldn't stand it any

jumps onto the platform, . grabs the
feller by the throat and says to ine
girl: 'Never fear; I will save you

Oh, won't somebody save him?' A

and then threw me out into the street.

The farmer paused and re-lit his
pipe, and then continued. .
"And to this day," he said, "I have
never been in the city, and-1 have
never been able to understand how all
those people could sit there In that
