TOPEKA STATE JOUBNAIi, WEDNESDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 12, 1902.
rOSSI M SKETCHES. Zeb White Tells of a Family Bow and the Results. '"Mebbe yo' noticed that the old wom an was a bit cantankerous this maw nln'?" said the old possum hunter of Tennessee as we net out on a bear hunt ne October morning. y. "She wasn't smiling very hard I re- lied. . . n he continued as uot a son 01 i.i - th we made our way UD"C, ' her Cumberland. "1 ain t blarnin her, though; Kit 'em myself now and then nd when I do I feel pi .en mean fur .while and would tackle anything on irth. We don't often git these htsat the same time, but when we do so-.e Calamity is sure to toiler. I heard the old man chuckling to him elf as he took the lead, and by end to. as we halted before a big cave. I ask, him if he had a story to relate. He sat down on a rock, removed his skm cap to wipe his brow and then replied "It may be a sorter story. It hap pened five y'ars aso. I sot up one mawnin' with a headache and a bad test, in my mouth and a rej.n -'--" all over. It might hev worked off with me arter awhile hut fur the old woman. Peared like she wasn't feelin very peart either, and whn we sot sot down to breakfast she scz to me. sez she: "HE JEST WALKED RIGHT UP TO ME." " 'Zeb White. I'm wantin' snuff and shoes and a new kaliker dress, and yo'd better turn to and get 'em or thar'll be a row. I ain't gwine to stand this fussin' around no mo.' " 'Who's a-fussin'?' sez I. " 'Yo' he. Yo' hain't done a hard day's work in two y'ars. It's jest huntin' arter possums till we's almost in the Xoi ehouse.' ' 'Hain't I sellin' possum pelts fur 50 cents apiece?' " 'Of co'se. but yo're chawin' up the money in terbacker jest the same ol spendin' it fur co'n -uice down at the Co'ners. Things has got to change around yere or I don't stay.' " 'Yo' hain't tied to this cabin by n rope.' sez I. " 'Mebbe yo' dare me to go,' sez she. "I hain't coaxin' yo' to stay ag'in yo't feelin's.' " Then I'll go.' "I didn't think she'd do it," said the old man after a quiet laus:h, "but she riz up from the table with her cheeks as red as tire and -put on her sunbunnit and started off up the road. I was sor-' ry. but it wasn t fur me to call her back. I hail to let on that I didn't keer, ro' know, and when I had finish ed mv meal I started fur the woods, I was arter possums ag'in. Things didn't go right 'tall. Instead of bein' glad and ready to so with me, my ole dawg sneaked off and hid hisself. Then I found I w as out of powder and lead, and when I went out to feed the mewl I Oiskivered that he had got out and wan dered away. When I did make a start, I felt that mean that I was minded to sot the cabin afire to spite sumbody. I went through the woods cussin' and kickin.' and I jest made up my mind that the old woman mitht stav away nil the rest nf her life befo' I'd make. It up with her. Yo' 'member the path we follered over Panther hill one day? Waal. I was takin' that r.ath. Thar was plenty of b'ars around yere then, and only three days befo' the fuss I'd pet a big trap on that path. I orter hev recollected 'bout it as I went along, but that fuss with the old woman driv it clean outer my head. Yes. sah. I walked plump Into that trap befo' I knowed it. and. what was wuss, I was kotched with both legs jest below the knees. I "was carryin' mv ritle long beside me, and it was kntrhed too. If it hadn't bin, the teeth would hev gone right to the hor.. ' "But you had your arms free and could get out yourself," I said. T'd like to hev you try it once!" he frrinly replied. "The heft of that trap was all a "man could lift, and I hd tn use a lever to spring the jaws open when I pot it. I had the chain fast to e. tree and had cleared the ground around It and thar wasn't so much as a stick 01 1 In myself with. 'Deed, sah, but 1 Just f, ll right over and howled with the puin of it. Peared like my legs was b in' sawed off with a dull saw, and I never cum higher to falntin' away. Arter nhout ten minits my legs got numb and the pain wasn't so bad. but I sweat till I nudr.'t a dry thread on me. That spot .! two miles from any house, find how I was gwtne to git outer that scrape 1 coid.Jn t tell. I hooted and whopped till I cmud hoot no mo', hut nobody cum. That is. no numan nem cum. What did sho.v up Fellow Wpfkrri, Mr. Hauskeep And what are you going to call your verses? Rimer "A Bro ken Vase." Mr. Hauskeep Ah! That reminds me of a little thing pur servant girl dashed off the oth er day. Quite Dlflerent. Markley No; I don't like Bor roughs. Farkley Why, I understood you to eay you thought a jreat deal of him. Markley No; I merely think of him a great deal. He owes me money- Z .s rhr New 'Woman. Little Elsie Oh, take me up, mamma- It's so mud dy! Mamma Walk across, that's a good girl. Mamma has all she can do I0 carry poor Fido. JIV)W 'V M V . J was a b ar. Reckon he'd been sleepin in a thicket nigh at hand and my yellin' had disturbed him. Anyway he was thar, and my rifle was cotched in sicn .1 Wy that I couldn't use it. The blaxied var mint knowed I was in a lix and took ad vantage of it. He jest walked right up to me and smelt me up and lown. Then he hauled off and hit me a whack with his paw which rolled me twice over. I couldn't do nuthin but take it, and I reckon it was half an hour befo' he got tired of the fun and walked off.. Thar was his chance to kill and eat a map, and a man as had killed thirty of his kind, but he didn't take advantage of it. "And what happened after the bear left TOO "Waal, that was about noon. I rolled around and got the chain free and then tried to open the trap, but I couldn't fetch it. About 3 o'clock In the afternoon, when I'd make up my mind that I was a goner and was lyin' on. my back and wcepin' like a baby, my ole woman hove in sight. She d got sorry and gone back to the cabin, but to this day she can't tell why she follered me into the woods. Reckon the finger of Providence p'inted that way. She'd got over bein' mad, and she was powerful shocked to find me in that b'artrap, but yo know how wimen ar'. They don't want to 'pear to give up too quick. She seed me a good way off, but she didn't hurry. When she cum along up. she gives a sudden start of surprise and then sez to me. sez she: " 'Mebbe I'm mlstooken, but hain't yo'r name Mistah White?' " 'It ar'. ma'am.' " Zeb White?' " That's it.' " 'Live down van hy the branch and call yo'srlf the possum hunter of Tennessee?' " 1 he :a:ne.' " 'Glad to meet yo'. Mistah White. Ar' that thing on yo'r legs a patent masheen fur diggin' roots?' " 'Not zactly. ma'am. It's mo' what they calls a b'artrap.' "Waal." said Zeb. "we talked that way to each other fur about ten minutes. Neither of us wanted to be fust to give in. yo' know, but bimeby the pain was so great that I had to crawfish. It took her half an hour to get me loose, and then she had to carry me home on her back. That ended my huntin' fur about three months, but as soon as I could drag around I went out and knocked over that b'ar which had played with me." "Hut Mrs. White came out ahead," I laughed. "Waal. I hain't gwine fur to deny that she didn't." replied Zeb. "That's the vust thing 'bout these yere family riots the old woman alius cums out a leetle ahead; jest 'nuff to brag on. It was nigh two months befo' she said a word to me on the subjick. Then as I was sorter feelin' sassy one day she turned on me with: " Say. be yo' that yere Zeb White as was wearing a b'artrap fur breeches over thar in the woods one day?' "And I hadn't nuthin' to say nufhin' 'tall." (Copyright. 10e2, by J. B. Adams.) ON CATALINA ISLAD. Spanish Mackerel Plentiful Near the Summer Resort. A sportsman who visited Catalina this week writes the following graphic de scription of the sights he saw at this fa mous resort: "One of the most beautiful sights we saw during this calm weather was a school of bonitas or Spanish mackerel, swimming about fully 40 feet beneath the surface. They are the gamiest and the shrewdest fish for their size I have ever seen. Looking down through the azure depths o? the sea we could dis cern them plainly darting here and there, seeming almost gigantic in the uncertain light. Throwing a dead fish overboard, we could see one of the mackerel go after it like a streak, slant ing up through the water. Fixing the same sort of a jbait upon our hook did not fool them in the least. One of the school would take after it, but would dart aside as soon as the tip of his nose touched the hook. We caught only one during the entire morning they were swimming about beneath us. That one was a gamey fellow, I tell you. He must have weighed 30 pounds. "Another excitinir scene we witnessed was a huge tuna chasing a flying Dsn. So fierce was the contest of speed that the great fish actually leaped several feet out of the water and hurled his gleaming body for yards through the air in a vain endeavor to catch his prey by imitating its mode of escape. The tuna fell back into the oce;-.n with a great splash and the flying fish continued to j skim through the air until Its wings got dry. No sooner had it touched the wa ter again than the tuna was after it once more and the same aerial pursuit was repeated. The tremendous force with which these tuna propel them selves through the water was exempli fied in the momentum that carried this one like a rocket through the air. "I caught a five-foot shark which I Mnnded only with the greatest difficulty. When I finally brought him on hoard my feet became tangled up in the line and the fellow nearly dragged me back in the water with him. He was a Uttle man-eater with the fiercest row of teeth you ever saw outside of a dream." San Francisco Bulletin.

"So I was; but I didn't know itl MARGARITA J) THE MESA. I lived in a large town of southwest ern Texas, In a whitewashed adobe with thick walls and heavy blinds. The ranch on the mesa was the abode of Marga rita. I can see her now with sunlight on her long braids of burnished gold. All my thought I shared with Marga rita. It was I who taught her to read and write. I, a bad boy, educated this beautiful, neglected child of the haci enda on the mesa. Timid Margarita learned to ride my fractious burro. Neb. Once she was in the act of mounting; one baby foot was scarcely in the stirrup when I banged vicious Neb with a niece of mescjuite root. Neb's heels flew skyward and off he dashed. I laughed with glee, though I expected her to be thrown to the ground and trampled by Neb's hoofs. She clung to the saddle and found hor voice. Out of the ranch came Big Ike, her brother. He rescued her; then turned his attention to me. That he was older and larger did not prevent him from clubbing me with the mesquite root until I went limping home. Margarita was my destined bride. Every evening found me on the wooden platform in front of the hacienda. How could she know? Was I not always with her, or at the law office where I was a clerk? Who knew of the hours between midnight and dawn spent across the river in the room behind the wineship, where Penita's languor ous black eyes watched the game? I married Margarita Nieland. Pepita knew why I had married. When we returned from our honeymoon trip, Margarita knew, and though she said nothing, her father found out. For her sake he did not prosecute me for the forged check. Ike had been gone for months, no one knew whither, else my case would have fared ill. We lived in the house under the mesa where I had spent my morally untrain ed boyhood. Soon Margarita made dis coveries of the gambling den in Juarez, Mexico, just across the muddy, crawling Rio Grande, where Pepita reigned. When my resources were nearly ex hausted I invited the "boys" to my mud castle for a game. As usual, everything went against me. Margarita sat around like a ghost watching me with wide eyes tn her white face until .wmething within me Rhrieked out in agony. . I arose from the table, and would have struck her down, but she fled in terror. I found her gone when the "boys" left. The next morning when I presented my self at the hacienda, old Nieland warn ed me away with a gun. I was in des perate straits, so I donned the blue uni form to be sent to the Philippines. While at the fort. Big Ike from the Oklahoma volunteers .joined our com pany. He was a large, powerful man, about six feet three, and very broad. Big Ike did not choose to recognize me. My opportunity for paying off old scores came when we were located in Luzon island. I was regimental clerk and slept at headquarters, a nipa shack with a stable underneath, on the usual plan of Philippine architecture. Two officers and I slept at this place some distance from the barracks. One right we were awakened by a terrible noise below us. Colonel S sprang up. "We are attacked by insur gents!" he exclaimed. We three hastily descended. By the light of the moon we saw Ike, frenzied by vino, fighting the horses. The colonel and his aide drew back. "Take that man to the guardhouse, Campbell," roared the colonel. I had him locked up. On my wav back I glanced up at the barred window facing the swamp and saw that face! I had forgotten a certain likeness be tween Margarit and her brother. It was on me again, an unutterable longing -for one glimpse -of Margarita. Earth and sky reeled before my blurred ;ision. I flung myself madly upon the ground and the world rolled awav from me in darkness. When I came to myself in tne early gray dawn I noticed the swamp. I knew that exhalations from that gloomy abyss of foulness must be dangerous. Yet I lingered, wondering in my too-late remorse, if regeneration were possible for me. W hen I arose to go I was chilled with a deathly chill. I thought of my enemy trapped behind the bars and knew that he was a doomed man. I had inhaled the deadly miasma. With health gone, I had been discharged for disability. The companion of my voyage on the small transport was Big Ike going home to die. We buried the hatchet. He knew nothing of Margarita's marriage, and I kept my own counsel. I shall never forget the horrible days. "P. S. I hope your chest is better, as you will probably have to come home soon," and nights in the vile-smelling. rat infested hold of the ship, where we poor dying soldiers were forced to spend our time. Ike and I slept in one small bunk, that we might use the two blankets in the cold of that November voyage across the Pacific. Big Ike. grown feeble and gray of face, took his first walk in the biting air A dark night. The slippery deck of the steamer. A high wave. A weak moan. The hungry greenness swallowed up Big Ike. I felt the grasp of the giant's arm upon my own. Into the awful blankness of the long interval that followed my memory refuses to go. I had gleams of consciousness when t found myself frozen to immobility in spite of the two blankets. I would reach out for the curly mop of golden hair. Then the chill would come, and the rats with their red eyes in tne dimply-lighted hold, the wailing of the ocean rookin;? ?ts uead and the moaning concert of the ship. ' I reclined, propped by pillows, in the wide window seat, as the moon peeped over Franklin mountains. Pepita was pres ent, though I could not separate her from my dream visitors. In the misty moonlight the phantoms gathered. Ike. my drowned companion,, arose pale and massive. Pepita's star-like eyes shone upon him tenderly. Heaven poured down vivid radiance. The light fo cussed on the holy face of white-robed Margarita. My soul thrilled wi.h a voice 1 A Hf (Iff mlag Trait. Mrs. Hatterson Don't you think Mrs. Polkadot is an awful gossip?

Realizing that I was con scious, Margarita flung herself upon my numb, lifeless body I had saved Ike from drowning. As I clung to the rail, holding him back from the ocean's icy embrace. I had been buf feted by the waves until my spine was permanently injured.
