It was a apeeunen of tht% la»t mention«l kind ol
amuacmeiit that I » iinri«*«l on the roorn'ng in
queation.
Jim Dell, who li*«d, (as I learnrd after
Mania,) in the northern end of the rounty,.
had tiaited town for the pur|»»ac of buying!
two buiH'hea " of No. 8, apun truck but (
though he had found the thread of number* T
and 0, Jim would not purchase, for he aaul
he "would either suit the old oman'to a ha<
—or else, he'd be ru*wd ef he'd git any apun
.truck at all." So he »|wnt the money intend
ed for "truck" in treating to "old rye," rath
er itun buy any other than the precise num
ber that she wanted to till her counterpane
with. And the morning »ua not nn>r« than
half gone before Jim waa in that beatific
frame in w hich wires " apun truck" of what
ever uuinber, and in fact, rtt domritm', gen
erally, are welcome to go to the devil.
Kphraim Middle waa also in town. Ho re
aided at the other extremny of the county,
and had come to the court house to consult
S<juiro U"ie4,"to know for eertam, how
high a feneo a man ud have to ha*e, beloio
he could ahoot cnnvbndy'• miaehee»oua ateer
for jumpin o*er It." Unfortunately Squire
Wind waa cejapp«J in the court room, and
Eph waa compelled to fight off ranw with
" rectified." So while Jim Bell was lmbib
ing hia liquor at ' Our Houae," Kphraim
waa swallowing hia on the other aide of ths
square, at the "Randolph 'F«lMMr]r,".
Neither of our -«orthiaa kaew iIm nth«r; but
the town boys (constituting the '• Devil's
Town Club,") determine*! in solemn conclave,
thai they should Iwcome well enouf h acquaint
ed, at least, to have a "chunk of a light.
And the town boys knew the weak poinla
developed in the personal history of both Jim
and Eph, and with Ihta advantage they art to
| work.
Jim (who was almost aa deaf aa a poet.)
stood in tli« doorway of "Our Houm," bold
, inn on with one hand to keep hiinaelf atesdy.
Ilia ejre «a« watery, and his fare red aa a
gobfcr'a a'tout. Suddenly a voice waa heard
proceeding front a house ac»oe» the aquare,
, in which the querist was concealed—
" Who atole John Stxahan'a t|<oke shave'"
ABother voice (from a masked battery in
lite neighborhood of The Tbetmary,) re
sponded— «
" J ins 1K. I1 atole the •^ukt /avv !"
" What'a that'" asked Jim, who thought
he heard his own name but w^an't certain
" It's only Kph Middle," replied a member
| of the town gang » bo made it convenient to
I be by " It's only Kph Diddle, and hiacrowd
[orejatthe Terttotiary, makin' game, and
ssyin* you stole Stratum's spoke-sham."
" Who stole the spoke-shave," resounded
4gain, before Jim bad collreted hu ficultica
for reply.
" Jitn lh IIanawercd a voice of thunder.
" I'll go over, by Jupiter," roared llell,
wh« w<is somewhat of a bully ; "and whip
the whole d—<1 crowd I will, by —
" Hold on, Jim, hold on, old fellow," ssid
tha amiakle youih at hia aide—" don't go

out w ho nurked tK* tthilt ft*bull' Tkat'U

Jim did as he was told, and echo pave b.irk
the roar, a» he yelled—
" Who nurked the white faced bull'"
In an tnsUrit a powerful pair of lungs,
from behind a corner of the eourt house, re
plied—
" I4.I1 Middle Mule thai ^n|| "
" Wske up Kph," Mul one of the gang,

bawled out—

And then, at the in»tancr of hia amiable
town friend, he replied to hi* own question i

" What'a that, that fellow hollered about

the town bovs
" Why, he said, (a* he wn putting on hia

The town Uira were iu perfect ecataciee,
and yelled taudly. Jim him»#ll'. felt * litile
triumphant, and •lapping hi* hand* agamM
hi* »ulre, in imitaUon of a r»«»ier, he very
gallinaceouely emitted a Ci« < )d!*-4oo '
" Kl° 1 ».h in ad nut tnv Imnun tVelina," |
lung out Eph, who ju*l then ritnenibcred

hi* hard to hi* car; and upon being infmmcd
immdutelv re>oin*<l—" r( you can't act out

Sho.ita of loud<*t merriment from the crowd '
interrupted Eph'e replv, and the town boy*
began In "hu*tle" their tictinta cloeer to»

mationa of encouragement with which the
hoy* thoted Jim and Eph toward* each other;
and really the ctpected combatant* had made
up their mindi, each that he would pitch into
the other—certain, reapectitely, that *uch '
warm and dmntereetcd friend* would prevent
their being terioutly damaged*
Ju*t at thia juncture, the aherifT, who had
been »ent by the court to quell the tumult, ap
proached with rapid at ride* Eph in a panic
started off at full tpeed.
" Thar got* th« buH," touted one

from the Court houae, rwiumod to dutiee in

The nuachievoua raecala who had fot op
the fun between Ephand Jim w«re determined
that th*> affair ahould not go off without a
fight; an the friend* of each plied him with
i whiakey, inaiating that honor imperititely
i demanded that h« ahould light, and declaring
, that h« would find hia antagoniat a mera noth
ing to whip. Elhilerated by the liquor,
wanned by the worda of their fnenda, Jur
and Kph derided that a pitched battle ahould
decide the matter. Hut where to fightf—
( Court waa in aeaaioo—it would not do to btara
town—frienda ought to he at hand. Here
waa a difficulty ; but at length Tom Culhreth
i »uggeated that iludginahad a prime collcr un
j der hia grocer*. and that they bould take poo
wMton of it, and hav their fight aa private aa
they pleaaed. Accordingly, to the cellar all
lianda repaired, and Jim and Kph were hurri
ed down the atepa, and in a trie# the donra
*ere closed over them Aa anon aa thw waa
done, one of th<- bnva roared out to tbrm, that
I they •' ahould ne*er euaw outen thar, 'till 0M

The crowd auid at tb« celler door long
enough to aacertain that the incarcerated had
gone to work to earn their emancipation.
It wan urnio tuna after noon when I neat
