WEEKLY SHORT STORY
a domestic; diffhtlty.
Having ordered a phone to be put in,
my house was invaded about 1U o'clock
i_ the morning by two young men,
armed with boundless confidence, a
few tools and a coil o? wire. Demand?
ing a step ladder, they announced ttiut
they had come to put in the telephone.
1 having greeted them with much po- :
IttOOOOO. mildly indicated the place 1 j
wished to have the instrument; which j
locaUou they immediately declared to
h?; au impossible one. So choosing a
plOCS Which was to their own ta
they promptly began to bore holes,
which, had they all been used, woul?!
hav0 provoided uic with at lOOOt a hall
dozen 'phones.
However, the ways of workmen have
always been, and doubtless will ton-i
tiuue to be, pas: the coinpiehei-siou of
any ordinary mortal; so it will sullice
to say tuat in the course of an hour
or two of turmoil I found myself pos?
sess? d ol a long coveted telephone.
Whon the bell rang the lirst time I
sternly curbed my wild desire to run
aud answer it with all the enthusiasm
of a child with a new toy, and waited
for my dusky maudiuaideu to attend
to this new duty; rejoicing meanwhile
in Un- fact that she had vociierously
assured me tuat ?no understood all
about it.
A few moments passed, and the
'phoue bell rung again. So I went toi
see what caused the delay in its being
answered; knowing that my new maid
Aunt Harriet must have heard it. 1
found her standing with arms akimbo,
gazing fixedly at the instrument. Be?
lote replying to my rather supertluous
?luestion as to whet?or she had hoard
the little hell ring, she raised her
hands to heaven, sighed deeply and.
with her head tilted to a most ag?
gressive anyle, pointed, dramatically to
the telephone:
"Gawd knows 1 done hear yer a
riugin' On a haggi-rnienzing all 'cept
deef folks mos' inter de grave."
"But, Aunt Harriet," 1 remonstrat?
ed, "you told me that you knew all
about answering 'phones; and it is
certainly going to ring until you do
answer it."
As if to bear out this statement, it
gave anotlHT wild peal.
"Just look at me now,"?1 thought
an illustration might help the cause,?
"1 hold this to m.e ear, so; then 1 say
'well," or 'hello,' and I can hear just;
what the other person says." "Yes.",
1 had to interpolate in reply to the
operator's question as to whether No.
475 was O. K. "It semed to be all
right." "Aunt Harriet, you just come
here and try it. It is such a nice con?
venient thing, and it will save my
having to send you on ever so many
messages. When you iinish talking
you must hang thiB up, so."
"Yas mam, 1 sees; en 1 certney sec

Folding her arms, and nodding con?
vincingly, she continued,?"Jus' as

"Aunt Harriet, of course you won't
have to answer the telephone in a
thunder storm. Everybody knows that
is dangerous."
"Yas, mam, dat I knows, en I aint

"That is too absurd Aunt Harriet,"
H replied indignantly. "If tin- Iight?
nin:; had Struck anything in that kitch?
en, your COOOla would liave been kill?
ed. The Idea! She upset the potatoes;
you know she did. Besides, what ?OI
all that to do with my telephone?"
"Yassum. '( ours?* I knows white
foiks thinks niggers ain't got no sense
'bout dem kind or things." replied Har?
riet, serenely ignoring my remark
about the telephone, "but I done seen
her foot; en hit warnt natchul fer per
tatoes, what everybody knows is good
1er but?S, ter a done hit dat-a-way.
I le,- foot des look so awful, hit like ter
mad? me sick, ?*.n nobody wouldn't a
thought of pertatoes nor mithin' else
tep eat when d<\v seen hit."
Having, during this torrent, gather?
ed courage for one more plea for the
telephone, 1 again plunged into th<
argument. "Now look here, Aunt Har?
riet, it did not do me any harm. You
saw me talk into it. Now, why in this
world should you be afraid of a tele?
phone. 1 really would not have you
ii-i anything that would hurt you, or
make you lee] badly."
"1 knows dat Miss Mary; dats what
yer tole me when 1 had de toothache
en you 'swadc en *owade me ter go fper
lef,' en my jaw aint nuvver stop junip
de tOOthpuller, en when 1 had went de
man yueked out de bes' tooth I had
in' yit."
This old grievance was too much. I
could not resist telling her, for I am
sure the seventy-fifth time, that if she
liad gone where I told her to go, and
not to a colored man she knew nothing
about, she ?ever would have gotten the
wrong tooth pulled. Honesty also
causes me to admit that 1 also told
her 1 never wished fo hear about her
old tooth again.
"1 aint gwine ter tell yer n? mo'
er bout hit neither, Miss Mary. 1
knows hit ineoks yer feel bad ter think
'bout how 1 done los' dat tooth; en
eon y ways 1 got hit now all wrop up in
silver paper in my money purse. Hit
looks mos' es big es a quarter too;
en reel purty, though I mus' say 1
missed hit some whilst 1 eats things

You knows, Miss Mary, I is reely kind
er 'shamed ter mumble 'long inter dat
li'l black cup to fokes 1 aint newer
see lak I is bound ter now."
There seemed nothing to be done.
I really was so exasperated I decided
it would be a relief to get out of the
house, and perhaps pay a few visits
and do a little shopping. On my re?
turn the door was flung open with un?
wonted promptness by Aunt Harriet,
who was absolutely beaming with good
nature. "Run right erlong, Honey,

Building inspector i:eek. who ex?
amined the cave-In last night, said
that the sliding of tin- ?and may have
been starte?! by a trolley pole which
was locate?! on the sidewalk about the
middle ?>f the extent ot the lot on
Eighth Street. The vibration ?ausetl
by the heavy Broad and Main cars
going ni? and down Eighth Stiv?'t had
doubtless caused the pole to sway
when tb?1 ?-artb beneath was dug ?>ut.
Once getting a start this pole swayed
more and more every time the ?artb
was jarret! by the passing of tin- cars.
Thus it acted as a lever to start the
earth away from the embankment. As
soon as the eartii was started ami it
began tumbling into th?> cavity be?

dragged down.
It is saiti by William L> Carnea!,

the cave-iii was a contingency which
could not have been foreseen. He
sait! that the earth was a solid bank
of clay, with no tistires. little mois?
ture, and had apparently never before
been ?luw into. The lower end of the
lot, bo said, bad been fillet! in rc

was not considerable an?! certainly not
serious. Every reasonable precaution
