It was on a train coming in from New

"I believe not."
"Well, you must excuse me. I fell off
a haystack last summer head first and
struck on a four gallon jug full of hard
cider. My memory has been rather
si aky since then. Split the jug into
fcurteen pieces. My name is Boone

"I ginerally get that off my mind as
scon as I can. I've got a brother living
there, but I don't care particularly about
hi aring from him. He never writes t.n
le a some of his fam'ly is sick. Did I
explain that I was no relashun to Dan'l
"You did not"
" 'Nother lapse of memory. I giner
al'y carry a card with me on which it is
sfcited that I'm no relashnn, but I've left
it to home, 1 "spose. We are a different
set of Boones altogether. Was I tellin
yon about the old woman?"
"Couldn't remember whether I did or
not. That tumble has made me rackety
in the head. I'm afraid the old woman
is laid up fur the winter. She was chas
in a hen through the calf lot one day in
her bare feet and she stepped on an old
scythe in the grass. Heard her holler
half a mile. Hen got away. Did I stump
yoa to trade watches?"
"I ginerally do that the-fust thing. I
'spose I've traded watches more times
th.m any other man in America. J be

on'y two wheels in it. Did I ask if you
ov. ned a h-.iss?"
'I don't remember that you did."
"Sense me, but my memory ain't
wl at 6he used to be. I ginerally men

mtn, cause Pm a buster on tradin bosses.
I'd git out o' bed and walk six miles in
a thunderstorm to trade hosses. I be
gu i with a span wuth $400, and I've got
do-vn to the lankiest, scrubbiest, 3-year-old
you ever did see. If he'd lay down
in the medder fur a week the crows
wouldn't even look at him. Did I ask if
you belonged in Jersey City?"
I didn't hear you!"
Wall, I probably forgot to, and I beg
your pardon. Guess I mentioned, how
ever, that Tin goin to town to buy some
bat bed wire for a fence. That's the
name, isn't it barbed wire?"
"Got it put down somewhere, but I
car 't trust my memory since I fell ker
cht nk on that jag. Don't want to swap
jac iknives or watches or trade horses,
"Wall, 1 thought Td ask ye, anyhow.
I st id my uame was Boone."
