THE HAWAIIAN STAR, THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1893. SIX PAUtBS.

"You rementcr thai trip I made nut
tnrough Michigan over a year ago,
doubtless," said Jackson lVters. " 1

Jones looked at the younger man
with severity. "Jackson, I was just on
the point of telling a Itotj I I a little
idea of my own when I lived in lOWl
several years ago. Enrich us with the
tale of your bright young friend some
"Yes,' returned Peters, "it does very
well for you to sty thai, hut my story
was going to be a true one."
"Young man," answered Jones, "you
seem to forget that I am your former
teacher. The Bffltoriel of the district
ichool at Hemlock Hollow appear to
be deserting you.''
"liive us fOtir -tory, Jones give us
your story, ' said Smith, encouragingly
"I was going to," replied Jones. "It
was a number ot yeais ag. I was
living out in Iowa near Des Moines
My place was on the Des Moines river
bottom, and the bluff's were literally
alive with wildcats. The wildcats from
all over the country seemed to be in
the vicinity that vear holding a wildcat

a fancy stock farm, and between the
resident and the visiting wildcats, th-. y
played the very deuce with my blo. ded
chickens I don't need to tell yon,
gentlemen, that I am mortally afraid of
"Seems to me that's a pretty serious
admission for a man who only last
night was telling how, down in Arkan
sas, he used to spring up bears with a
4 inch hickory plank and shoot the
on the wins, like clay pigeons, sa.d
"An idle tale, Jackson, an idle tale
A man must relax a little sometimes
As I was"
"But you offered to btt $50 that"
"I cou dn t shoot those wildcats, you
see, so what juld I do? N'ghl alter
night they walked off with my choicest
fowls. One div a bright ideaoccuirtd
to me. It was nothing moie or le
than eveiy time I heard any disturbance
among the chicken?, to put my head
out of the window and call out 'Sett'
in a loud voice.
The narrator paused and 1 joked at
Jackson Peters defiantly. But Peter
only blew a cloud of smoke ceiling
ward and arched his eyebrows slightly.
" That was a clever notion," observed
Robinson, "very clever notion. Worthy
to rank with your plan for extracting
the latent energy from tramps. v
"No, Robins in, no," answeied Jones,
smiling, and evidently much gratified.
"No, you are too kind. My tramp
idea showed genius; such things come
to a man but once in his lifetime.
This was simply an indication of a
special talent lor dealing with wildcats.
Still, if you would believe it, my plan
proved utterly valueless as far as
frightening the cats away was con
cerned. 1 'seated' myself hoarse
every night for a week; still th.ise wi.d
cats went right on carrying away my
poultiy. But I felt that the principle
was a sound one, and I locked aboul
(or the weak point in the application of
it. I soon found it.
"I was employing the same volume
of scat for wild cats which is used in
the case of tame cats, and wild cats are
thrie times bigger than tame cats. My
first thought was of a speaking trumpet,
but I soon decided against it. 1 de.
termined to make a clean sweep of the
whole matter. I sent to Chicago and
got an impri ved Edison phonograph
with intensifying attachments I set
the intensifier at the ratio of three to
one. I then shouted a battery of scats
into the receiver in my natural tame
cat driving voice. I wound up the
clockwork and set the phonograph
near my henhouse. A small wire con
nccted the clockwork with the hen
house, so that a cat on entering the
door would set the phonograph off,
causinn it to speak once. I went to
bed, gentlemen, and slept soundly till
"After breakfast my foreman told
me that at abint mid "iht, when the
first wild cat started to enter my
chicken coop to feloniously abstract
mv poultry, that phonograph s rt of
cleared its tlir.iat and remarked '.cat:
in a voire which rattled the trjndowi.
Gentlemen, my fuicman wjb a man in
whom I had the utmost c infidsnce,
and lie told ine that after that phono
graph spoke he observed a long, gray
stieak of wild eats reaching from my
henhouse door to the underbrush aboul
200 yards distant. The saint phenoine
11011 was noticed by my foreman in t' t
rase 01 subsequent cats. 1 lost no
more chickens tlir itigh the depredations
ol this obnoxi tut form Oi vermin.
Jones paused and ill his cigar, which
had gone out. He blew an aggressive
cloud at the I ADD, elevated bis chin
and looked at Jackson I'eters.
Peters rested his cheek in his hand
and seemed thoughtful. Alter lome
seconds he drew a long biealh and
said, "Jones, may 1 tiouble you to tell
us when this irileiesting and v.iluabu
incident took place ?"
"Certainly, Jackson, ceitainly. 1
the sutnmti ol 1871."
I'eleis smiled. The 11 he said : ''The
phonograph, Jones, is given a later
date by the more advanced historians
and archaeologists. You are, Jones,
guilty of anachronism.''
"No doubt Jackson, no doubt,'
answert d Jones. "Must men who tell
the truth are. I shall not lie to avoid
an anacluonisni no, not if I am guilty
of an anachronism with every word 1
Utter il my whole life becomes one
