Let's give Omaha a touch of the sunny
side of prosperity.' So we went on to
Omaha and in two weeks wore we was
busted. Not plum busted, you under
stand. We had about $10,000 left be
tween us. It was a little over that, be
cause that represented the exac*
amount of our investment. It come
about this way: We*was a settin' in
the bridal chamber of the best hotel

was roast turkey. I disremember the

me to eat roast turkey now, I want to
tell you. I killed a man with a neck

We didn't leave nothin* of it but the

investigated. We was in luck, for the
market was glutted with turkeys an'
they was goin' beggin* at 75 cents a
head. I figgered that they would sell
on the coast for a dollar a pound easy
an' that they would average 14 pounds
in weight, takin' them all through. So
we jest put that whole ¥10,000 in the
birds an' started out.
"They was easy enough to drive

as ever jou seen in jour life. Tvtelve

not a straggler in the bunch!
"Fedd? Well, what do you think?
Wasn't there bugs on the road? I
reckon there was. It was a grasshop

way those turkeys fatted up was a
sin to snakes. Fourteen pounds!

commenst lookin' around for a place
to roost, an' then they would fly up
into the trees, an* we could rest easy
until the next mornin'. We took the
old overland trail along the Platte out
to Fort Laramie, an' not a hitch in the
arrangements. We could see how the
folks in California was goin' to flock
round us with their dust when we got
there. We could see ourselves in car
riages, with plug hats an' spike-tail
coats an' blooded stock. Hah! Do
you know what that would have
brought us? It's easy. Puttin' it at
the moderate estimate of a dollar a
pound, an' allowin' the average of 25
pounds to the bird, there we were
with a clean profit of $24 75 on every
one of them, or allowin' for possible
losses by death or misadventure, say
$300,000 on the outfit. It was a gol
durned shame that we had to slip up
on the deal.**
The old man began to smoke his
pipe in stolid silence, and the stock
tender winked at the stage agent. The
silence continued for half an hour,
and was then broken by the stock
tender remarking that it was about
time for him to feed them horses.
"Yes," resumed the old man, placid
ly. "We slipped up on it, an' it was
this way: You see, we had had lots
of cottonwood trees all along the
Platte, but when we started to cross
the plains to Green river we noticed
that the turkeys got bothered at
roosting time. They kep' twistin'
their necks around lockin' fer some
place to roost all night long, an' the
next day some of them had necks like
a pretzel. When they tried to feed
an' took a shot at a bug or grasshop
per they would miss him from six
inches to a foot on one side or the
other. Joe allowed that they would
learn to calculate the variation after
awhile, but they got poorer an' poor
er, so all there was to it we had to
take them back to the Platte to get
the crick straightened out, which they
did in a few* days. But when we took
them to the plains again we had the
same old trouble, an', to make a long
story short, we kep* drivin' them back
an' forth an' back an' forth until
there wasn't any more to drive."
"What got away with them?" asked
the stage agent.

QUAINT OLD-TIME WAYS.
Some Maasaeuvsette Funeral and
Meeting House Regulation* of
a Century and a Half Aso,
Diving into the old records of one
of the most charming cities of our
commonwealth, Northampton, we find
much of deep interest as revealing
customs and habits of olden time.
No fire was found in "the meeting
house" in olden time, and compara
tively recently foot stoves were car
ried to church, as were tallow can
dles to the evening meetings. In
1737 the important vital question at
a legal town meeting was: "Shall
men and their wives be seated to*
gether in pews?" and the vote was
an emphatic "No!"
In 1744, says the Springfield (Mass.)
Republican, about the beginning of
Jonathan Edwards' trouble in the
parish, it was voted not "to pay
the charge of bringing his daughter
from Brookfield." In 1738 this ap
pears on the town records: "Taking
into consideration the difficulty Mr.
Edwards hath labored under this
year, and some time past with re
spect to his firewood, the town voted
that those persons who have not this
year brought him a load pf wood
might have liberty between this time
and next Tuesday night to bring each
one his load of wood." If there was
not a sufficiency of wood by that
time, the town then voted, the se
lectmen shall see that the deficiency
should be met at the cost of the
Later, in 1789, we find in the war
rant for town meeting this entrv:
"To procure firewood for the Rev. Mr.
Williams to choose a committee to
seat the meeting house." A most
serious business to decide, who should
take preference in the broad aisles!
The "nigger pew," well remembered
by the writer, caused no trouble to
said officer, as that was readily ac
cepted by the "colored brethren,"
like cows in the stable, who went
dutifully to their separate stalls.
Not only the living had special
rules governing their conduct, but
the rules about the dead were very
quaint, as by this report of a com
mittee, May 11, 1780, to whom had
been referred the conduct of funerals,
Whereas, It is the opinion of this
town that funerals ought to be con
ducted with great decency and de
corum in order to impress on rising
and risen generation the importance
of the awful solemnity, and to render
the house of mourning better than
the house of feasting. Be it there
fore recommended to all the inhabi
tants of this town to observe the fol
lowing regulations at funerals:
First—That the relatives of the de
ceased follow next the corpse, two
Second—If the deceased was a male
person the males are to follow next
the mourners, two and two, and the
women after them, two and two
but if the deceased was a woman,
then the women are to follow next
the mourners and the men after
Third—Those on horseback are to
follow in after the foot folks, horses
two and two. and the carriages are
to follow in the rear of the proces
sion. And it is requested that no
person walk or ride on either side
the procession from the house to the
Ten of the1 prominent men of the
city were appointed and requested to
attend at funerals and to regulate
the procession thus recommended un
til the same shall become habitual
to the people. In 1745 the question
was raised in the annual town meet
ing "if the town would be at the
expense of coloring the meeting
house," and it passed in the negative!
Evidently they thought that nature
would do it without expense. Not till
1749 were the forts and fortifications
of the town demolished and the tim
ber and boards sold for the benefit
of the town. Laws were passed rela
tive to the schooling of boys and the
amount of wood they should bring
to the schoolhouse -girls were of no
account in those days.

The doctor said I never would be able to go my
full time and have a living child, as I was con
stitutionally weak. I had lost a baby at seven

went my full time and my baby lived to be
three months old, I should send a letter to you.
My baby is now seven months old. and is as
healthy and hearty as any one could wish. I
cannot express my gratitute to you. I was so
bad that I did not dare to go away from home
to stay any length of time. Praise God for
