JUMPIN JOE RELATES THE STORY Or AN UNEXPECTED TRAGEDY. How a Vldow Joy Was Suddenly Turnwl to Sorrow When She Beheld the Maa Who Failed to Hans Himself A Mor tal Conflict. As the sun waswendin his peaceful way inter the west, and I was at the same time slowly makin my way over the ken try to'rds the town of Xew Hope with my monster agpregashun, I met up with a woman on hoss back who was leavin a trail of dust fur a mile be hind. When she reached my out- ; Ct, fcho cum to a A woman-ON Hobactc ( halt, and while ehe was b'archin fur hei ! breath I lays my hand on my heart and I sez: j ! "Was the late lamented a luvin hus- i band and a good purvider, ma'am?" i "As to my ola man?" she sez as soon as 1 ehe could talk. ' The same, ma'am. I happened along ! jest as the vigilance committee hud got the ' ropo round Ids neck. As I take it, he was i one eyed tied bow legged and not much I of a loss to grieve over. I axed him if he had any last word to send to hisi eorrerin 1 wife, but he" 1 ''That wasn't my ole man," she sez a ! she sips from tho bottle which I offers, 1 ''but it might as well hcv bin. Durn his hide, but he's gone and huntj hisself on a tret; clus to our shanty and left mo a wid- j der with seven children to keer furl" ! ' Did ho hev any chjkk, ma'am any i pertickler objick as you kin jijrtrer out5" "I can't see that he had onless it was to s-pite me. We had a tussle soon artei dinner, and I whopped him in the most bev.'tiful manner. Ittook melmlf unborn to do it, but when I pot his nose in th ! pras and his lcars doubled up ho bad tc i I holier." 1 "A:id which way war ye ridin now, ma'am, if I may bo so bold?" "Fur the coroner. Sumbody orter Fot ! on Iko accordin to law and pronounce him dead, aud I'll need help to proper'.? plant him. Kin ye tell me how fur I'll : hev to go': ' ' I "My mlshun in this Cherokeo ken try," j sez I, ' ar' to sootho the afflicted, sorrel j with the sorrerin and bring sunshine out ! o' darkness fur my feller men. I'll sot on j yer ole man and help yo too bury him tc ! boot, and if I kin leave yo feeiin that lift i ar' wnth tho livin I shall ask no other re- ! ward." j She thanked 1110 kindly, and we jojrpcd alonf, and as wo jogged I told her of 1115 j "N fam'ly remedies ,Ct!s srasbun of reptile ! r " -' . . ; s-t ix'-f intelligence and succeeded in turnin hei! thoughts into brighter chan- I nds. When we i pot to her claim, 1 tho seven children ! was sittin at th ; f.;r.r jiikI tlif r-t2b..dy of t lie L-ttt : 1 a m onteil was " AFFLICT kd widder," h.ingin from the j si:z 1. limlj of a trea without any moshun whatever. "Ar' he a goner?" asked the woman aS I duoly inspected the body and cotici.-d : that; in the scrimmage spoken of he had bin badly chawed up. 1 "Afilictod widder," sez I as I (urns and ; bows hurulily afore her, 'what ye bi-hold , hero is but clay. Tho spcerit cf yer Isaac j has soared beyand the skies. In otht 1 I words, ho won't never lick no more chil- dren nor cliaw up no more bacon 0:1 this I yero sinful airth. I'm thinkin by the gin- j eral looks of him that ho wasn't much of j a man, but yit tie muse uev nau a lew gooa p'itts. " "Meblie he bad, but I can't call 'em to mind jesfc now. Ye kin lister wliat lie was when be goes and banfrs hiself hero instead of walkin off aiidlettin sum young and aml.dshua town bev a show to btart a graveyard. " "I kin see tho p'int, ma'am, and it's not to Lis credit. Is thar any pertickler spot around yere wharye wish him to sleep and j moldcr to dust?" '"Will it be the same to ye?" she asksa3 i she tumbles the children outer tho way to ' look around. j "Jest the same, ma'am, as the lato rains bev softened up tho sile every where about. If it wouldn't bo W" ,. considered as im- rj, iS -y pertinent in a Z ii-t v'3r stranger, howev- I. 1 . r: gest; a spot be twien tho road and the house. When ye git the headboard up and the sun flowers gro win, most trav elers will stop to fieo and read, and when tho summer sun has sunk to rest yerself and"IT'S MT OLE MAX IKE." the fatherless kin sot on the doorstep and hev the grave in view." "But I'll marry agin within three months," sez she, '"and my second hus band may object." "He'll be a mean kuss if he does, ma'am, but if it'll please ye better we'll plant him at the back of the house." She thought that would be the FtesS -way, and while she corralled the children in the house I dug a shailer grave and laid tho body tharin and kivered it from sight. She cum out jest as I bad finished, atid I sez to her: 1 "Exeoose my absence of mind, ma'am, ! 'but mebbe ye wanted to grieve over him j lafore he faded from sight?" 1 T ' t -n lis, I'm rather glad he s gone, and if he 11 stay whjtr be is I'll bo much obleeed to X. T Mm.
