"Silas," exclaimed Mr. Rodjjers, "I never
suspectod you before, but I believe in my
soul that you and Titus had something to
do with it."
"Me, Marse Sain !" cried Tit 1. as Silas
stood dumb and conscience stricken. 'Fore

' I wish I could break the hea 1 of the fel

"Yes, sub, I wish you could," said Titus,
Mr. Rodyrs, having heard of Silas'
downfaH, determined to make use of him
in overt hrowiag old Juba. The chief grand
lambkin was now au altered man. As he
stated it, ' be was uow nowhir." While
he was in this f rlorn condition, Mr. liodg-t-rs
unexpectedly came to his relief by of
fering him 50 to break up the f old digging
"There is ::. gold down there in that bed
of rof-k." s-iid Mr. Rogers. -'That old
ilnrky is crazy, and you negroes are a pack
of fools to lielieve him."
Silas. mied in silence. He did not be
lieve Mr. Kodgers. but still he tlioueht it
would Ie a good plan U run off old Juba
and get the gold in the pit himself, and at
the same line recover his iosr practise as
chief grand lambkin.
Mr. Rodgtrs was a waggUL man, so he
took great plmisnre in preparirg Silas and
Titus f.r the parts they were ti play. Ac
cordingly at midnight the gold diggers,
who were working in profor. nd silence,
were startled by strange sound , ami groans
that proceeded from the woods Two tall,
white phantoms, each supplied with two
heads, adorned with fiery eyes and months,
appeared, followed by another that looked
like a cleamins skeleton.
"Who meddles with my gill?'' cried
"Laud hab mercy:" cried the negroes,
and begun to fly. Old Juba le:iied up.
"Some baudy's bin a-spitten':" he yelled.
"An' so an tbil sperit."
"Jnba-a! Juba-a! I come after you!"
cried a hoarse voice.
With another wild yell Juba lied, fol
lowed by the mob of frightened negroes.
"Now I'll get my cotton p.cked," said
Mr. Rodgers, and he went to bed with a
Hut with daylight the negroes' courage
returned, and they swarmed about the pit
full of excitement. In the bottom of it
was found a paper on which vas written:
"I have taken the gold an I lift you the
Curious to sie how matters were pro
gressing at the gold diggings, in the after
noon Mr. Kodgers took his wif for a stroll
and walked in that direction. Aunt Bina
accompanied them with the baby. He was
a big fat fellow, more than a yar old and
quite a load for the old won an, but she
doted on him aud thought hiu.a wonder of
The day w:is hot and opprc.viive. A
strange sultriness filled the atmosphere.
"We'll have a shower before long," said
Mr. Kodgers. "It's so close."
This oiservation started Aunt Bina off,
as she walked behind with the baby. She
had long wished to gee Mr. ledgers' opin
ion concerning the discussion which niged
totween her and the cycloni pit diggers.
Now was her opportunity.
"Marse Sam," said she, "doi-'t yoa think
it wrong run run frum tie Land?"
"Yes, I do."
"You does? Why does you?"
"Because it is a useless wa,te of time:
yon can't get away, you know."
"Wcli, then, don't you think a-diggiu' ot
cyclone pits is wrom:?"
"I don't know. What makes it wrong?"
"Why. it looks tuh me liktr try in' tuh
go agin ik will ob de Laud. KfileLaud
wuz minded tuh 'stroy you ly a cvclone,
wouldn't it seem liker flyin' in bis face, ur
ruuuin' frum Gaud, tuh go ilig a cyclone

"I don't know," said S.-vn. "I don't
think I'd spend my time digariui; a pit, but
if there whs one handy I think I'd jump in
if there wa. a cyclone about."
"But didn't you jis say you wouldn't
run frum Gaud?"
"Weil, 1 don't, ouly from the cyclone."
"Well, ain't dat. agin his w 11 tuh 'stroy
you by a cyclone?"'
"it 'twas lis wm to uestroy me by
cyclone it would overtake me before I
could reach the pit, and if it was his will
that I should escape I d get t.iere ahead ol
"Kil Marse Samuel! dat eni de way tuh
taJk. It, nias' be eder right u wroug tab

"Then I'd keep out," said Mr. Rodgers.
"Yes. sub, dat's jist what I'se gwintei
do, de Laud lein' my helper. I'se gwintei
stan' richt up an' say, 'Yer, Laud, yer'i
me, suh.' "
In the meantime the crowd of negroes
about the gold pit were in a state of great
excitement, which was artfully lashed tc
fury by Silas, anxious to recoer his influ
ence. Old Juba seemed dazed. All hi
could do was to remark time and again:
"Sumbaudv spit! Sumbau iy spit!"
"Huccum de ebil sperits oliertu'n us 86
w'en Juba had de Bible? ' queried Israel.
He trow way de Uioie," a:a fellas con
temptoouslv. "See way de ebil sperit
fttorop 'em?" and be pointed to the markj
of Mr. Sam Rodgers boothed, where he
had accidentally trodden on tbe book.
"Ef be hadn't hab trowed vny de Bibl
no ebil sperit could hab got de golc," urgee"
Silas. "All ob you nab had yo' wuk fue

Marse Sam's cotton. You's bi n yer r. week,
an' you's got nuttin' tuh sho full it, but
disher big bole in de groune, an' annuddei
in to' pockets."
This artful flpoech roused -he crowd tft
fury. Propositions to hang Juba by th
more excite-d. or to beat him by the milder
men, were freeiy expressed. Old Juba
maiie but one defense.
"Sumbaudv spit!" he muttered. "Sum i
As the day went ou, the mar approach
of Sunday aud the fact that there was no
week's wages to buy supplies, caused them
to wax hotter and hotter. The Chose u
Sons of Identity formed themselves into a
band of regulators, and each armed with a
hickory, they seized upon Jc ba, and wen
about to give him an unmerciful beating
ven a sound, an awful sound, smote a poo.
" 'Tis de ebil sperits!" yelled Juba.
The sound came nearer. The trees began
to wave and bend, then to crash, as they
were uprooted and hurled to the earth.
"A cyclone! a cyclone!" screamed Silas,
and leaped into the pit, followed by tbe
Mr. Rodgers and his family were still
sauntering down the road, and Aunt Bina
was still declaring that she would never
run from the Lord, when that sound smote
upon their ears and an awful sight ap
peared to their eyes; for away across the
great cotton field could be seen a strange
looking sight a gigantic inverted cone,
whether of aggregated dust or descending
slouds the beholders had no t ime to decide.
It approached with a fearful velocity, and
with an awful sound that, terrified the
b!det. As :t p isse.l everyt ijing fell prone
m earth: trees, fences, houses disappeared.
Il seemed death inraniate; the fell destrov
"My God! it's a cyclone!" cried Rodgers,
;;alled. "Run for the gold diggers' pit!
Run. Laura! Don't faint!" as his wife
't i rgered. "R in, Bina, run!"
But Aunt Bina needed no urging. Throw
ing the fat baby t i her shoulder she darted
ahead of Rogers and his wife, and flew like
t he wind.
"Not fer myself. Laud," she screamed as
r-he ran, "not fer myself; I cut arunnin'
frum you, but 'tis disher chile, Mars Sara's
baby. I'se 'sponsible fer!"
Indifferent to the crowd in the pit, Rod
gers hurled himself and his wife in. Aunt
Bina was already there; she had lit on the
back of Silas. The next second, with its
fearful whirrings and irvi.-ininirs, the cy
clone swept by. The three sweetgums
were uprooted and fell across the pit, shut
tiiii; them securely in.
In live minnr.es the strange storm had
swept by, and all was calm aud still save
for a shower of rain.
But in the improvised cyclone pit hub
bub reigned; groans, cries, prayers rent the
a:r till Mr. It-xlgers commanded silence.
They were packed like sardines in a box,
so that t hey could not move. It seemed
strange that they could make so much
After some consultation Israel, who was
tall and slim, mounted tbe back of Silas,
who was very broad, and after many strug
gles and failures managed to scramble out
between the branches of the trees. Find
ing an ax hard by he chopped a hole among
the lirubs, through which they all finally
succeeded in escaping after a rude ladder
had been improvised for them to ascend on.
While these preparations were going on
the imprisoned crowd indulged in some
lively passages. Silas could not refrain
from twitting Aunt Bina by asking how!
she came there in the pit.
"1 cum yer," said she liold'.y, "'kase 1
bleegter felch Marse Sam's baby. You
think I gwinter 'low Marse Sam'sbaby tuh
be knocked tub pieces?"
"I thought you wuz one dat wouldn't
run frum Gaud, an' yer you cum plud-de-
junk in dLsber hole. Please Hand, cf 1

knocked my head off."
"You t'ink I gwinter tck de 'sponsibility
ob disher chile an' 'low inyt'im: tuh hap
pen tuh it? No," cried she, hugging up
the fat baby, "mammy loves her boy!"
"Hit's all bcry well 'bout de chile," pur
sued Silas, "but how, I wanter know, you
gwinter answer tuh de laud fer runuin'
frum him? He ent agwintertek no sicher
'scuse as dat. He'll say, 'You triflin' run
away nigger.' "
"Silas, hold your tonirue," said Mr.
Rodgers, coming to the old woman's res
cue, "I thank God Auut Bina could run
like a deerhound, or my chiid would have
"And the Lord will say. 'Well done,
good and faithful servant!'" cried Mrs.
"Dey, now! what yon got tub say tuh
dat?" cried Aunt Bina triumphantly.
"I shu, Miss Laura," said Silas, "i lerry
glad Aunt Bina sabe de chile; Gand knows
I'd had resked my life fer it myself. Aunt
Bina bein' in a position ob 'sponsibility an'
truss, does right tuh run; tain't as a nuss
I'se discussiu' her duty, but as a sinner
wedder she should run from Gaud."
By this time laf-tween faith and duty
Aunt Bina was in quite a maze, but Mr.
Rodgers cut the matter short.
"Nobody can run from God, for he is
everywhere, so it's a waste of time to try and
hunt a place where he isn't, but it's per
fectly right to run from a cvclone like
When the prisoners were released they
paw that a clean road 100 feet wide had
been cut through the cotton field aud the
woods as far as the eye could reach by the
cyclone in its awful march.

looked around, "perhaps it was a lucky
