A Story of the Early Diys of Illinois, as
Told from Memory by
Th Humble-HM" Flglil Thai filler of lll
lloyn Th Iiinne.tit Tnimp'i rt
Tli Horrible Floats at
This ston "as been told meb) soniebol).
but so lone ago that the character are
mist) in ni) brain. I will attempt to tell it
onlj as I call recall it and I ask the reader's
pardon if it lacks coherence and connection
Six bois w.re gathered In a held Id one
of the wildest back-woods regions of south
ern Illinois. Tliev were engaged in fight
ing a in st of bumble-bees, and th winged
insects w era given them little, if any, the
better of the battle But club-! and brush-
brooms at last began to tell against t le
"terrible numbers" of the angr) hone)
linkers, and tn inlniitrs after tbe
first sortie was made.the bojs were deour
ing the hone) in great ) ellow Hakes, while
the li juid. limpid sweetness was dropping
upon their scant ant rude clothing iu gol
den ropes The nest had elded nearl)
two quarts of hone), and the allowance to
each whilom warrior was liberal.
You would hue passed he of the bo)s
without a second look, but tbe sixth would
have attracted your instant attention. Is
there such a thing as dull deviltry.' At.
stolid brutalit)? Asiud.lent illln)? As
slow, dense cruelty.' Weil. iftherHare,
all these were depicted in Buck Bilhani's
face, and written in horrible italics
In every feature. The e)
so light that it was difficult
to distinguish its parts; the eye-brows
all gone, hat ing been burned ana) by a
premature gun discharge; the face deep!)
pitted with small-pox scars: the cheek
bones high and prominent as an Indian's.
The expression of that e would have
itiunediatel) chained )ou. Itwas absolute
I) unenkindled b) soul. I have sometimes
doubted that ha was a human. His eves
were deep set. close together and absolutel)
lacking in expression. The) looked the
same wheu he was tiercel), rjendishlt
angr) as now. when he was lazil) eating
lione . He seldom raised his v oice abot e a
monotone and never shouted. He was the
acknowledged leader among the. fewbo)s
in that wild region, and bore the stamp of
having been born to lead. H nmintained
Ills nosillnn hi his brilliant tirotslite Th.
Ida) before, tie had become angry at his
father's dog and pulled the poor brute's tail
out. Two months oefor. he had pulled
ever)' feather from a chicken that had of
1 fended him, and left the poor font running
about the miserable hovel as naked as birth
itself, save where the blood covered it
Hank B 11 ham, liuck's father, had Mrshed
Buck round!) for this act of cruelt), r
, ing out a small sapling on the
bo)'s bsclc During the beating.
Buck never complained, or ined.
or opened his lips. He stood
1 with his thumb in his mouth his favorite
attitude and Ins face was dull and vacant
as usual. That night. Hank Hilham's log
barn was burned down. A tramp who li.u1
been seen in the neighborhood was caught
and hung to a tree. He died protesting his
innocence. Buck stood b) and watched the
awful execution with his thumb in his
mouth. He did not take his eyes oft the
swinging bod) of the murdered and inno
cent man, as it swajed In th. gra)
gra) of the earl) dawn. He had bred the
barn himself, and jet he saw no
more cause for remorse In the
sight of the man thing for his crime
than in the sight of the naked pullet When
the bod) was cut down. Buck went up to
It and fumbled about the head. Then a,
he turned to go into his breakfast, he mum
bled to himself irWiout reinov Ing his thumb.
"Therbo)s got onter the wrong man
an) how. and I'd rather it had bean dad. I
guess I'll have to kill dad."
After breakfast. Buck Bllhara wrapped
something white and gristle) in a large cabbage-leaf,
and placed it among the smoking
embers and cooling coals of the log bam.
A dog rooted it out and began to gnaw at
it on the grass. Buck found tbe
brute at It and exclaimed, as he
struck the dog between the eyes :
"Let it alone, can't )er. Its the tramp's
ear. I'm burnln' it for a charm."
Buck Bilham was 13 )ears old and had
the heart of an adult devil.
The honey was hnall) exhausted the last
finger licked, and Buck was 1) lug on his
stomach with his thumb in his mouth kick
ing his brown heels lazil) in the air. His
ash-colored e) es were fixed on aranc)
that is. the) were pointed straight ahead.
There was nothing In his face, however, to
indicate reflection or thought
"Who's the new boy. Buck," asked one
of the bee-tighters.
Buck waited a little and permitted the
idea to infiltrate through his brain. He was
slow of grasping, and It required time.
Finall). he answ-red :
"Son of the new preacher, I reckin.
Pale sort of feller. I'm goiu' to beat him
" hat's he done to vou," asked another
of the group, with a air that belled the tre
pidation he felt as soon as the words were
out of his mouth
Buck turned a slow, pale gaze on the
sjieaker.and then thought a minute vaguel).
l're-enll) he answered:
"He ain't iln nothin', but I'm goiu' to
beat him for wearm' shoes "
"There he is, conun' this wa), now," an
nounced another urchin, hurnedl). "He's
a leadiu' his father's cow with a rope. Hi,
)ou! Come ov er here,"
"Hav en't got time." answered back a
clear, man!) voice. "I've got to take Belle
to pasture, and she's frisky ain't used to
"You come over here." saht Buck, look
ing lazily over his shoulder.
"I can't. Buck," replied Frank Earnham;
"but I'll drop in on my way back. Been
"You're comin'over now." said Buck,
slowly. He commenced to make prepara
tions for rising. He sighed, and finally
diagged himself indolently to his feet
"Wh), Buck!" exclaimed the boy. in a
tone of surprise; "I'vetold )ou how it was.
I'll be back In a minute. I can't leave
Belle to come in now."
Buck Bilham walked lazily to tl e rail
fence, clambered over it, and, going up to
tbe boy. struck him across tbe face with a
)oung bush he had used in subduing the
bees The blow brought blood. Buck
stopped and seemed to think. He looked
puzzled, and then said vaguely, in a voice
in which there was no emotion whatever:
"Come into the pasture."
The tone was the same he had used the
first time. There was absolutely no n.odu
ation tn his voice.
Frank Karnhaui wiped the tears and
blood from his face with his shirtsleeve.
anil then tied Belie, the gentle Alderne), beneficially, without wrenching or dreuch
toasapling. This done, he rolled ud his: ing. The liver and stomach, a nell h
sleeves, and confronting Buck, struck him
a blow betvvetn thee)es that cracked like a
pistol shot. Buck fell like an overturned
Without stopping to cast another look at
his fallen foe, harnham untied the cow and
walked on down the mud road with her.
Biukdidnot rise. He uttered us word
or s) liable. He did not appear chagnne I
at ais humiliation. He did not abuse Karn
ham. Tba rest of the bo) a stood In con
strained and awkward silence, not knowing
how to act in such a case. Presently Buck I
rolled over upon his stomach, elevated his I
e)es and inserted his thumb into his mouth '
He was evldentl) thinking in his vague,
slow way, and move! his feet from side to
'side, ijuddenl) something in the taste of
the thumb attracted him. He -looked down
alio, saw mat u was covered wun oiooo.
from his nose It seamed at though the
idea had never occurred to him beforo.
"He hit me, didn't he '.' ' he said, in much
the samo tone that h. would hare used iu
asking to be helped at the table.
"He did," answered the live boys in sol
Buck said nothing, but stared stolidly
ahead of him in the direction that Karnhrm
had taken. There were evideaces in bis
fare that an Idea was approaching the ter
mination of its gestation and was soon to
bo born. He looked around dull) once at
his companions and opened his mouth as if
to speak, but after holding his lips an Inch
apart a full minute, he changed his notion
about the matter aud replaced his thumb
This thumb was pallid from much sucking.
"Do )ou fellers remember that tramp
wot we hung 'ere oncet.'," Buck finall)
asked "No, I knows )er don't, Vaso 1
was the only teller oaten bed Cunousest
sight )'ever see. let's tease Kanium a
little same wa). We need'n' hurt him.
We c'n cut him down plent) time."
There was a silence. It was plain the
bo)s didn't like the idea, but who among
them dare differ from Buck Bilham's sug
Buck didu t look around at the group, be
tween the individuals of which there was
being telegraphed JOine live!) indications of
disapproval. Duck never dreamed of an)
one opposing his idea.
"We II tie one loop around his waist,"
said Buck, "so's 'e strain won't all come en
Ins neck. I'll bx it all right He hit me,
didn't I.e. " he asked, with a sudden dara
ening in his cold e)es.
"That's wot he did. Buck." answered one
of thebo)s, as he hitched his home-made
"He did," chorused the other four, mood
il). Buck said nothing, but taking aver) dirt)
handkerchief of unbleached muslin from
liis pocket, begun idl) to twist it into a roll.
Wa) down the mud road sounded the cher
r whltle of Frank Karnhaui. as he re
turned from the clearing in which he had
placed the cow. He still held tbe tether
rope in his hands.
Hi) walked straight up to Buck and ex
tending Ins hands exclaimed heartil):
"I'm sorr) I struck )ou. Buck; I want to
be )ur friend."
For answer. Buck put out both hands
with sudden cordialit), but no accession of
expression to his face Kirnham dropped
the rope with a look of quick surprise, and
etended both his hands. Buck grasped
each of the bo)'s wrists nrmlv and
wrenched them backward b) aijuiek. cruel,
powerful motion that made Kaniliatu's
joints crack and Ids fa e blanch. In an In
stant, he was Uat on the ground, face down
ward Buck bent the bo)'s anus over his
back, placed his knee on them, and an In
stant later stopped Eamham's angr) pro
tests with his handkerchief, u-M as a gag.
vviios got another har.dk chief ?' he
asked, after a moment's thought.
Another bo) produced one that rivalled
I Buck's in apjiearance, and with it Eam
ham's hands were tied behind his back.
Buck helped him to Ins feet, picked up the
rope, and started w ith him down the road
to where an oak tree grew. One isolated
branch shot out below the rest, about ten
feet from the ground.
., i',,. T? , Ba , "..
" It wilfbt be in-iulr), and said.
"We're going to hang you. Ain't we, fel
lers?" The bo)s were silent.
Buck halted his prisoner, and turning
around, faced the bo) s
"I said 'Ain't we'" Didn't )ou hear?" in
a cold, even tone. The bo)s knew it
"Yes, we are goiu ter hang him,"
answered one of them, as he dropped his
"That's wot we be," said the rest
A look of swift terror swept over the
captive bo)'s face. The next minute the)
reached the ree.
The bo) hung suspended between earth
and heaven, and Buck tied the tether-rope,
which be had tossed over the limb of the
oak. around the main trunk. The bo; s
then stood off and watched with uneas)
grins on their faces All except Buck. He
stood with his thumb in his mouth and his
face as v acant as usual
"Did )ou run one loop aroun' his waist.' '
asked one bo), with sudden suspicion
"I tole yer I would," said Buck, without
removing Ins thumb. And he had.
F.aruhim oscillated back and forward,
with his feet two feet from the ground As
vet he was in no pain Buck walked stow 1)
and Idly around behind him. and. reaching
up. untied the loop a'xrnt the waist
In an instant Larnham's legs shot up
convulsive!) and then commenced to work
treniiilousl). His face gradual") grew purpl.,
his e)e-balls seemed to start from his head.
His e)es, wide open, seemed bursting The
bod) swung round aud round Buck
changed his own position continual!), so aa
to keep the livid, fearful face of the hanging
bo) iu view. The muscles of Earnham's face
were seized with a convulsion, and settled
into a horrible grin Buck saw it and al
lowed his own e)elids to droop a moment
and a cold phantom of a smile to flicker
across Ids face. SuddenI). the gag Hew
from Earnham's mouth, f creed out b) his
tongue, swollen, black and awful He
gurgled once, aud then his ejelids sank.
"What's the matter with Inm?" screamed
one of the bo)s, with sudden terror.
"He's quit kickin'. His face is all black.
Here, Earnham Frank we wasnnlj fool
in'. Here wake up Earnham. M God '
Buck, what's the matter with him ?''
Buck thought a moment and then re
moved his thumb from his mouth.
"Dead," he said. Cauiiioi kt.
