J Him And Relapse ;;

By F. A. M1TCHCL V,
Wheu I get tired of work 1 conclud
ed to tramp. Rut when a man glt
dissatisfied wltb a bard job and takes
an easier ono tho chances aro tbat he'll
soon want nu easier ono sUII Tbo fel
ler that tackle tho Job be happens to
have for all It's north Is tbo ono that Is
most likely to rft an easier ono In time,
and when he sits It be'll bo satlsOed
with It till bo cits an easier one, and
bo'll bo goln up hill all the time.
1 hadn't been trampln' very lone be
fore It occurred to me that It would be
the easiest thing In the world, when
tome .fool woman was glvln' roe
somep'u to eat, with no man about the
bouse, to make her tell mo where she
kept ber valuables, take 'em and light
out. I needn't try It on at bouses near
together, but separate, so tbat there
wouldn't be any one to call on for help
and I'd bavo a better cbanco to clt
away after I'd done tho Job. Another
thins I must keep Clear of was bouse
where tberu was a telephone, or, If 1
tackled one of 'em. I must cut tbe wlro
before 1 started In.
Tbe first Job of tbe kind 1 tried 1
found dead easy. Tbe men were all
away, and tbe women was akecred to
death. Tbey banded over all tho money
they bad In tbe house ($17) and offered
mo some Jewelry besides. 1 declined
tbo Jewelry 'cause I didn't can to be
traced try In' to convert It Into cash.
1 got away with the money, and I
don't believe tho losers tried very hard
to Cnd roe. Tbe amount Involved
wasn't enough to pay 'em for doln' so.
By cbooxln' bouses that were unpro
tected and lu thinly settled regions
and bcln' content with smsll sums I
did a very good business and took tbo
lesst risk ponslble. Tbe peoplo 1 rob
bed considered me their natural enemy
and would bavo taken any revengo on
roo they could. This kept my con
science, and on the wholo 1 considered
my lot far better than tbat of persons
who stave all day at hard work. 1
roamed nt largo and bad what money
1 needed for an occasional good Ume.
If tbo persons I robbed bad only kept
on hurling their maledictions at roo per
bapa I'd 'a got enough by this tlmo to
set up lu some kind o' business, htrlpg
others to do the work. Strange to say,
1 my run of prosperity was brought to a
standstill by the opposite kind o' treat
ment. One day after trampln' two or tbreo
mile without mretln' a person or a
team or com In' to n bouso 1 overtook
a gal on thu mud and played tho usual
game of uut u' work, hungry, uo homo
nornotbtu. tasked her if sbokucw any
charitablo party thereabouts who would
give mo a crust of bread. She was tho
', easiest fooled gal 1 ever tackled, She
not only believed all I said, hot almost
1 cried over my misfortunes. Sho said
' ahe lived with her old mother around
! a bend In the road ahead and If I'd
i go with her Mho'd glvo mo all I wanted
i to eat and n llttlo money to help mo
' on to a better condition.
Sho took mo to u spick and span place
i and set me down beforo n bright fire,
wlicro I could warm mysolf, for It
1 wasn't In tho lino o' my business to
' wear scasonoble clothes, and off she
goes to glt mo somep'n to eat. Plrst
y Uilng 1 knew I heered n squawkln' In
the chicken hoimo and. lookln' out
through u winder, saw tho gal chop
y pin tho bead off'n n fat ben I'or
awhile 1 couldn't bellevo that sho wax
fool enough to kill n chicken for me
mid I didn't feel sure of It till I heered
It niullti' on the stove.
All this while I was thlnkln' bow
I'd commence tho buslneM 1 was there
for, My usunl gamo was to find out
where tbe money was kept or at least
In whnt part or tbo bouso to look foi
It. Sometimes I did this by round
about questions, sometime by obser
vation. If I could learn this beforo
holstln' the plrute flag It msde tho
Job much euslcr for me. In this cose
it occurred to mo that whllo tho gal
was out In the kitchen cookln' a chick
en for mo that abo could sell for '.
cent a pound I might go up tbo front
stairway end take a look Into tbo bu
(Join softly. 1 turned Into a bed
room on tbo second floor. I opened
the top drawer of tbe bureau and And
In nothln' opened an Inlaid box ou the
mantel. Amornr a few trlnkota and
other small artlcloa nestled a roll of
bills. I took 'em out. stuffed 'em In
my pocket and was turnln to leave
the room when 1 saw an old lady
standln' there- lookln' at mo. Bhe
turned white as a nheot. ran Into a
room, locked tho door, and I heard ber
ralso n wish and call out to her daugh
ter that then was a robber In the
bouso. I ran downstairs. Intendln' to
light out, but met tbe gal In tbo ball.
She looked as If sho hadn't yet got on
to tho fact that-1 was tho robber her
mother was talktn' about.
"Where Is her" sho asked.
"I reckon ho wont doiyn tbo back
stairs." 1 said
If the old woman hadn't recovered
from her senre enough to unlock bor
self and come downstair I would 'a'
said I'd look for him In tbe back yard
, and got away In that direction. Aa
soon aa she saw mo she screamed and,
runnln' back Into ber room locked
. t , - i,-- 4 jsoa
herself In again This put tbe gal on
to my true object- Hhe gave me a look
of dlsapKlntiuent and reproach that
did me mure damage than a bullet
would 'a done Then she said:
"On mother' uirount 1 prefer to tell
you tbat all the money there Is In tbe
bouxe In In n box on the mantel In tbe
room at the brad of the stairs. We
bnve no Jewelry of any value, and all
tbe silver wc own Is In the sideboard.
I've prepared a meal for yon, for I
con fen I was moved by your pitiful
itory and itppenrancc. Tbe meal Is
on the tablo for you, and you might
well eat It. I'll go up and get the
money for you "
The only reply 1 made was to put my
hand Hi my ockct. take out the bills
ind hand 'cm to ber
"I've doiu this kind of a Job a great
many tlmeV 1 said, "but thl Is the
first time I'vo wished I badn'L"
Whether It was what I said or tho
way Hooked 1 don't know, hut that soft
heart o' hern thnwed again, and she
actually seemed to want to make me
feel better nbut it.
"Ily My In' that you're sorry," sho
said, "you havo done all you can to
atone for your fault. Tbat is all any
of us can do when wo aln against our
Heavenly Tather, and I forgive you as
I hope to bo forgiven myself. Now,
come Into the dining room and cat a
good dinner I'vo killed a chicken for
you, and I have some cream potatoes
and have made yon n cup of coffee. I
can give you bread ond butter and
honey for dessert."
I didn't rcsllzc It at tbo time, but It
was this treatment that In tho end
lodged mo In Jail. Tho best way to
thaw out n cold hearted person la to
thaw yourself. There' Iota o' crim
inals that are born wrong, and nobody
can't do nothln with 'cm, and they
can't do nothln with themselves. Out
those of us who havo got a spark o
decency In us can't stand klndnesa any
more than other people, and unlesa
we've got some criminal blood In our
veins wo'vo got to bo switched off by
it on to tbo main track.
"If you'll sit down with mo," 1 said
to tho gal, "I'll do 1L Not tbat It' fit
tbat I should sit with you at table, but
1 couldn't eat unlesa you did."
Sbo sat down opposite the coffeepot
and poured me a cup of coffee. Then
with her own hand she helped mo to
tho chicken, asktn' mo If I liked white
or dark meat. Then sho landed some
of the cream potatoes on my plate,
and when I gave her n wistful look,
that nif-ant I winded sho'd try to cat
somctbln' herself, sho took a bit o' the
chicken and some bread and butter and
cat It for my sake.
She didn't giro roe n lecture when I
loft her: It nun uo more necessary
than glvln' me another dinner nnd
would have pine against mo just a
much Hhe Jut xrtlil "Homo day when
you are alone thU nay again drop In.
The latchitring Is always out. and
there are more chicken In tho roost.'
I didn't think I could say anything at
fust. I jest looked down nt tbo floor,
but before I got out o hearln' I turned
"I don't know what my next lino o'
work'll be, but It won't bo this ono.
and It's all owln' to you."
I left her standln' In tho front yard
lookln' after me, and 1 kind o tbort
her cycH were a bit moist, but tbo only
thing she said was "Ood botp you,"
and. turnln. went Into tho house. I
reckoned she went up to her motbor,
who'd been kind o' quiet nil tbo whllo.
1 hunted till I got n job nnd after
I'd been to work nwhllo concluded to
make a Unit to tho gal who had con
verted me and rviwrt progress. Sho
sou imil glad to sec mo. but sho said
that her mother had been so frightened
at my Inst appeuranco that It bad made
her III Hhe mild. too. that If I'd al
low her to glt me up another dinner
I'd make her really happy I saw that
she meant It. and. although I wasn't
hungry. I let her do It I'd havo eaten
shark's teeth to please her
I went to see her every now nnd then
after that On one of my lslt I
I found her lookln' unusually happy, and
sho told me she wa engaged to be
married I tried to look pleased and
sympathetic mid nil that, but It was
"You'll come to my weddln. won't
you?" she asked, and. seeln' she meant
It. 1 nroinlkt'd to co
I would mther have been burned at
the stake than to go nnd see her mar
ried I couldn't help show In' that I'd
be glad to stay awny, hut I didn't give
her tho awful secret I was carry'"'
ubout n to why I didn't want to be
there. When tho day came around 1
was on hand, sure enough, though It
was no use try In' to look cheerful
My goln' brought on a crisis tbat bad
to tome. I suppose, sooner or lator
Tbe police were lookln' for me, and at
ono of my visits to tho gal wbo'd got
the upper band o' me some one I'd
previously robbed saw mo 'comln' out
o' tbo bouse and set the cops on to me,
and tbey watched the place for me.
Durln' the weddln' ceremony I felt a
band rest on my shoulder, and I knew
what had happened. Without turnln'
I whispered. "Don't Interrupt tho wed
din' and let me slldo out quiet"
no had tho deconcy to do as I asked,
and I stood there lookln' at tho bride
and groom bcln' tied together. It was
mighty bard, and If I could 'a' got out
without beln' noticed I'd 'a' gone at once
with the cop. Hut tho mlnuto tho par
son said "man nnd wife" I took tbe
cop's arm luckily ho was In plain
clothes nnd walked out with him as
though he was a particular friend o'
mine. I didn't look back neither, fear
In' to catch tho brldo'it eye.
I'm payln' tho penalty of It all, and
I supposo If It hadn't been for one act
of klndnesa when I get out I'd u' Into
tbe old business. But tbe gal who did
It. though she doesn't belong to me,
stand In tho way. For her sake, what
ever I do, I'll bavo to be honest
