ARRANGING A STRAW RIDE TO A
DARKY BALL IN RED BANK.
Sid C?melos Proves a Grasping:
. Monopolist-His Load of Merry
Colored Folks Leaves Him
They Return at a Reduced
?ow York Sun.
There vas going to be a great
darky ball, or "dance," as the col
ored folks called it, at "Texas,"
which is a part of Red Bank, and
the colored folk of the whole
country side from Oceanic to Long
Branch were stirred up by the fact.
A great many of the Long Branch
darkies were wondering how to get
lo "Texas." Some decided that
they could afford to take the cars ;
some, women ashwell as men, de
teimined that tt?ey must walk, and
others gloomily concluded that
they must stay at home. When
the eventful night came the news
ran among all the negro quarters
that Sid Cornelus had borrowed a
hay wagon and a load of straw,
and had hired two horses and was
going to get up a straw ride to the
' ball. This news proving true, and
it being understood that "Brother"
Cornelus would wait at the "upper
pole" of the village for his load,
' there was a quick alteration of
everybody's plans. Those who
were meaning to take. the cars,
those who had no better hope than
of being obliged to walk eight
miles, and those who had con
cluded not to go at all, united in
declaring that they would take
part iu Cornelus's straw ride.
There was no further disappoint
ment, and no change of plans.
The hay wagon loaded with straw
and the bony lethargic team were
at the Upper Pole. Furthermore,
Sid Cornelus had constructed a
slender and uncertain ladder and
had leaned it against the hind end
of the frame of the wagon as a
help to the colored ladies to mount
to the soft, elastic straw on which
all were to sit. By 8 o'clock in the
evening there must have been at
least forty darkies around the
wagon. This was twice as many
as could find places in it, but half
of these were old "mammies" and
still older "uncles" and little folks
in their early childhood. The
bloods and the belles who were
really intending to go to the ball
were easily distinguished from the
others. The men were smoking
cigars in a holiday spirit, which
they .would have characterized as
"puffeckly reckless." and were clad
in their best clothes. These best
clothes did not at all appear
worthy of that classification, for
some of the trouser * were frayed
at the bottoms, some of the coats
were patched with cloth unlike the
garments, and some of the waist
coats had lost their buttons. The
elles were far more presentable.
h *ew of them had on gowns
were only of calico, they,
i. Reless, were whole and neat
look*. But others were extrava
gantly drebded, with all the bright
colors of the rainbow in their gar
"Come, get a move on-those
that's going," shouted Cornelus.
"Ef we gwine to get to the bank
'stime we sasshayed."
"The bank" is what all the Mon
mouth county people call Red
"Am de bullgine gwine fer to
start?" was asked by one of the
friskiest of the party, a lantern
jawed, long-limbed young man
with a necktie as red as a grate
"Yes,'? said Cornelus, "an' any
coon what don'want to get lef had
better boost his lady up de ladder,
fer I'm a-blowin' de whistle, I am,
and dis yer train of one Pullman
am a gwine to hustle.'
Then there was a boisterous time
around the tail end of the wagon.
One or two selfish men without!
sweethearts clambered up by'
means of the wheels and secured !
the first choice of seats, but the
majority gathered in a bunch by
the ladder and saw the women
safely up in the straw. Such a
giggling, such coquettish timidity
as to the safety of the ladder, such
hallooing and loud langhingas the
men indulged in, would all be very
difficult to describe.
"Dar you is, honey; git der bes'
fifty-cent seat dere is." "Torm,
you, jest hoi' down my dress
while I climb dese yer golden
stairs. Never you mind ef I got a
VJ J. JAJLJJJ J.V7JLL.
hole in stocking or not, Sam ?1
berson; hold my dress Torm."
"Say, Bill, Inf go o' my gal, there.
You look after you' own bunch er
calico or I'll pull my razor, d'ye
With such remarks, and a hun
dred like them the wagon load was
at last made up. Then there was
a'paufe while the load got settled,
and while Brother Cornelus pre
pared to have every passenger also
settle with him for the fare. There
was much talk about the money
that was needed, and the most as
tonishing disclosures of the finan
cial condition of the passengers
were made. Some of the men did
not hesitate to borrow of their fe
male companions. "Liz, you know
you got to put up der spondulix. I
ain't got a dam cent to my name."
"Whar's Maria? Maria, you done
got to lend me ten cents, or else I
don' see you to no ball to-night. I
only got forty cents." Whether
these men blushed or not it was
impossible to see. This was partly
because it was a dark night. There
were many calls to Brother Corne
lus that he must trust this one or
that for fifty cents, but those were
jests, and Cornelus knew it, for he
paid no heed to the suggestions.
The seating arrangements were
peculiar. One girl declared she
would sit on her man's lap. "I
'shamed?" she asked; "I ain't
'shamed o' nothin' so long as my
conscience is clear." One of the
men folded his girl in his arms
and acnounc?d that he waa going
to love her all the way to Red
Bank, at which she fought and
writhed for freedom like a cap
tured cat, and said that if he
didn't "leave off his foolishness
she'd jump out of der wagon."
Except for her display of temper,
all were as merry as a chime of
marriage bells. There was one
fellow, he with the red necktie,
who kept crooning one line of a
song in the way that is peculiar to
Some folks say dat a preacher won't steal.
This line he kept chanting
monotonously, evidencing perfect
and complete happiness. It rose
above all other sounds, sharp and
clear, in a high falsetto tone. Once
another darky took up another line
of the same song and repeated that
again and again. The effect was
like this :
"Ann Maria,,is dat you' leg or
is it mine?"
Some folks say dat a preacher won't steal.
"You know whose 'tis, an' you
better look out for yo'self."
"Well, then, I can't find e'ny
one of my legs."
Lord G6d knows dat a preacher won't lie.
In the course of time Mr. Sid
Cornelus mounted the ladder, and
surveying the almost solid mass
of passengers on the straw, cleared
his voice and made the following
"Ladies and gentlemen, please
fork out yo' seventy-five centses.
De fare am a-going to be seventy
"Wha-a-a-t?" from a dozen
"Dat's what it am," said Mr.
Cornelus. "Dis yere ain't half a
dollar side show. Dis am seventy
five cents or walk."
There was an instant and pre
cipitate scramble for the ground.
No words were wasted. The men
leaped over the sides of the wagon,
some of the women threw them
selves off the straw and into the
men's arms, and others came la
boriously down the ladder, front
ways as women will with their
skirts clinging to the frame behind
them and being pulled higher and
higher to their knees. No one of
the colored folks seemed to see the
humor of this sudden and general
scramble. -To the white lookers
on it was almost unendurably
funny. At one moment the wagon
was heavily loaded with twenty
light-hearted persons going to a
ball. The next moment no one
was going to the ball and th? wagon
was empty. A raise of a qur.rter
of a dollar in the fare had occa
sioned the transformation. It was
evident that fifty cents was the
general limit, and that if all had
gone Cornelus would have had to
charge nothing to bring the dancers
home or all would have had to
The astonished merry-makers
drew off ' in knots. All talked
earnestly and out loud. Above all
the uproar rose the refrain :
Some folks say dat a preacher won't steal.
But ia the strain of the moment
another line of the song escaped a
merry woman's lips, and she flung
it back at the songster with tl
fed necktie :
But I caught on? in my corn fiel'.
"I ain't got no mo' money

There was a scramble for thi

astonished and excited. He saic

darky with the red necktie paid nc

and the wagon frame, but pulling
ahead just the same, as if the j
would pull the arms out of thc
women's bodies. When the wagoe
was filled again Mr. Sid CorneluE
climbed up to collect his fares.
He had become reconciled to the
extraordinary reduction of the
rate, and seemed only intent upon
getting the 35 cents, which each
passenger owed to him. Soon all
the money was collected and the
wagon was started. Tho darky
with the red necktie now sang a
whole verse of -his favorite song :
Som? folks Bay dat a preacher won't steal'
But I caught one in my corn fiel'.
He said he was prayin' where noone was nigh,
Lord God knows dat a preacher won't lie.
The song proved catching. AE
the creaking, bumping, swaying
load turned a curve in the road the
air to which the verseB were sung
came pleasantly back upon the
wind. The merry-makers were all
in good humor, and each was 15
cents better off than he or she had
expected to be.

"Well. Franky," said Mr. Bill
tops, "once there WBS a little boy
aDd he had a little dog. It was a
very nice little dog and everybody
liked it, but after a while it began
to get old. It didn't get cross. If
anybody stepped on it it would
stand up and hold its tail down as
low as it could and wag just the
end of it, and look np as much as
to say, 'I don't mind boing stepped
on, if you don't mind my getting
in the way.' But it got sick and
sort of miserable, and this little
boy's father and mother thought
that it might be better if they
should put it out of its misery
altogether. But they didn't
actually do anything about it, and
pretty soon something happened
which made them forget about it;
the little boy fefl sick.

sick, and for quite a spell they
didn t know whether he would

Solicitor Jervey is pledged to a

In a public speech at Columbia,

would indict every man who took
part in the murder. He also de

The opportunity which Solicitor
Jervey seemed to long for has come
to him and his selection as the
prosecuting officer is undoubtedly
due to his declaration that he
would leave no stone unturned to
bring bring the lynchers to justice.
Practically, his work is cut out

attempt at concealment. So that
