Tdjjar Tawci'tt In Youth's Comiianlon
Lato nun tiftoinoon In September 1
readied the cabin of John UuiiKerford.
In u cost) of tlie Kentucky mountains.
The family fomiiwH of lutlii'i'. mother
mill tluw m all children, and there were
many comforts uliout tlm iilacu. tlnn
Kerfotd was an industrious, liard work
ing man, and 0110 of unusual iutolligunue
for a mountaineer, and the wife and
children were far" above the average.
They extended a light royal welcome,
and we had been visiting away for two
hours when a woman rode up oil a mule.
The beast was badly blown and wet with
perspiration, and the woman must have
conw with important news. Now was
- developed a tiait peculiar to all the
southern mountaineers. They uro (,'aine
to a man and vrmiuui. They are the
coolest people in Iho face of danger one
"Howdy. .lolmV" queried the woman
as she drew re'n at the doir. and an aira.
HungeiTord appeared she added. "And
Both annwei'f;d that they were well,

"How aro all you'uns, Sarah?"
"All able to di. 1 haulm.. John."
"Corn an' t.tlerj turiiiu' out wrlii"

"Not u I it, iiarah "
"Haven't heard Iroih theni'mis, 1

loug'Tiauue, during which the woman
tried to sine me up.
"Mebbo. Who may ho'un be?"
"Stranger from tho uo'th.' .
"Will ho back with ye stand to your
back in case of trouble?"
"tfnven't mentioned, but I reckon."
"Well, then, thoy'uns iacoming up to
night to put on-lho hickory."
"Hu! Who said it?'.'
"Heard it at tbo corners. It's shore.

"Well, then, that's all I'vo got to say
Hope you'll hurt thoy'uns till they'll be
have themselves. Good-by, John good
She was off with tlmt. I had a dim
suspicion of what was meant, but the
coolness of tho trio puzzled me. When
sho was out of bight 1 asked:
"la it trouble?"
"Shangcr." teplied Iluugerford, as lie
pulled n twig olf n bush and bit at it,
"I'vo been warned uwayi"
"Took Hides with the Uldhams against
the Dab.-etts, and tho Bascetls have
warned mo to !"ave."
"And as'iou liave refused to go they
aro coming to t.ce yon out and switch
"Exactly-if they kinl"
"And are they coining to-night?"
"1 reckon "
"1 bhel be ready."
We sat in i.ileuce for a moment. 1
looked up at Mrs. Hungerford, but she
was sewing away and trotting her foot
as placidly a.s if danger was tit tlt other
end of the world. The children soon
began a (;i:i::e of tag, and tho husband
softly whibiied as ho switched the twig
over the ground.
"Great heavens! but you take it cool
ly," I eAclaimed as I noted everything.
"Strangur," answered Hungerford as
ho turned to me, "1 need somobody to
back with mo to-night. This ain't your
fuss. You don't know the Oldhams
from tho Bassctts. 'Deed you may have
stayed with tin Oldham last night. You
don't want to mix in, aud yet"
'I don't want to kill or bo tailed, but
can't I help you borne other way?"
"You kin. Ho'un is all right. Mary,
I know ho'un was."
"Glad on't," she briefly replied, not
even looking up from her knitting.
Hungerford took tho whole matter na
coolly as if it was an ordinary business
transaction. There was only ono way
by which his cabin could bo,appioachod.
It was arranged that I should secrete
myself in tho cowshed oiitho one hand,
and his wifu in the smoko house on tho
other, and at tho proper moment this
flank lire would have its effect.
Hungorfdrl was to hold thohoubo, and
ho was the ouly ono who was to shoot to
kill. As he Bitid it wiihii't mv fuss, but
it wasn't human nature to leave him to
light n mob alone, When all had been
arranged wo went into supper, and after
tho meal n double banded shotgun waf
got down and loaded for the wife. The
husband had his army musket, which he
loaded with'buckshot, and I had my re
volver as a woupou. As wo finished our
preparations and uit down on the door
btop the wife carelessly inquired of her
"Gwino to shoot to kill, John'r"
"Reckon 1 urtor," ho luplied.
"That'll according. Mobbo you'll have

Ono of them went away to call up tin

Visiting Fouthenier. at least those
from Tesai tiro not at all pleased with
the rush of northern railroads, if we may
believe Maj. Martin, of that state. They
aro used to n very different sort of do
ings. By way of illustration the major
tells this story:
1 remember that n woman mjo evening
usked the conductor of a train in my
state to stay at u certain place till night
She wanted to spend the night with
some, friends, she said, and if ho didn't
oblige her she should have to wait twenty-four
hours for n train.
The conductor t,aid bo hated to be dis
obliging to n lady, but bo didn't like to
delay tbo other passengers. Finally he
agreed to "talk it over with them, and
wo ueciueu mm u ner menus wouiu
give us lodging nnd breakfast we
wouldn't mind an extra day Rpent on
Tho train waited half an hour while
sho got off aud cousulted with lier
friends, and just as we wore about to
leave the place nho caiuo and told ut
that they had agreed to the terms The
fires in the engine wore banked, and the
tram left on the track Next monrug i
after a comfortable night hpent in thr
faun linnse. we left the place twelve
hours late Tails about accommodating
