for their curate. Every cunt, that
could be raised went for tho one ob

seemed to develop into a race to see
which parish could raise tho most
money. In that ovent tho $.1,200
raised by tho local curate was a mere
bngatollo for Perth Amboy. The

| The Earthquake at
Shuter’s Corners.
HIT'S cornin'; the signs is all right,
1 and it's surely coinin'. We’ll all
bo in eternity by this time to-morrow,
and the world, at least our part of it,
will be all joggled to pieces. This is
our last day on earth, and wo'd ought
to reflect onto the future state." Mrs.
Potter creaked dismally back and
forth in her wooden rocker, as she
gazed with lack-luster eyes at some
• hall'-grown chickens that were con
li an in; oci uivii 1115 uv.iuib iuo uycu
“Wal, I dunno," replied her husband
cheerfully, ns he combed his scanty
locks before the small looking glass,
"p’r’aps we'll be here quite a spell
yet. Them prophet chaps don’t know
it all." Mr. Potter was a cheerful
soul, though h's wife regarded his pres
ent optimism as nothing short of rank
sin. Hut he did not believe that any
serious cataclysm was impending, so
he sat down to supper with his wonted
good spirits.
For a prophet had arisen at Shuter's
Corners—one Qf those lank, sad eyed.
Ignorant beings who are given to
dreams and visions, and who exert an
unaciountable iJnduence over the minds
ol country fola. This particular seer
hnd been afflicted with a dolefully real
istic dream, itfr which he had seen the
• Corners" arid the surrounding coun
try swe'lowed up by a great earth
quake. Jfrhi'n an angel had appeared
to hitf! In his sleep, and had told him
that fit was an all-wool vision, and that
ihoMhings which he had seen would
surely come to pass, on the 27th day
ol the coming month, at exactly eight
o’clock in the morning. The destruc
tion was to be complete, and after that
date the world would know Shuter's
Corners no more. The prophet, it was
said, had eaten heartily of fresh pork
and fried onions on the eve of the
dream, which circumstance may have
had some connection with I he “vision,”
though this is mere conjecture.
From the time of the vision, the
prophet had done nothing but wander
about the little hamlet, “warnin’” the
inhabitants, many of whom, greatly
lo their discredit, believed the lanky
one, and were accordingly much de
pressed. These believers were for
leaving the place at once, but as none
seemed to know just how far the earth
quake's destruction might extend, they
changed their minds and concluded to
die at home. Besides, it was right In
harvesting time, and with a faint hope
that there might lie some mistake in
regard to the coming of the advertised
calamity, these superstitious folk con
tinued to gather in their crops, though
the work was done In a perfunctory
manner. Mr. Potter and his son, John,
were quite unaffected by the prevailing
gloom; and the cheerfulness and en
ergy with which these two worked at
gathering in the harvest surprised and
. .1 » K ~ r.e ll,^
and caused the dyspeptic soothsayer to
declaim loudly against the worthy
Ulmer's "ongodllnnss.” Rut Mrs. Rot
ter was the only utterly hopeless one
In the place. She looked forward with
absolute certainty to the coming of the
earthquake on scheduled time, the 27th
day of August, at eight o'clock. It
was now the evening of the 2Gth.
Mr. Potter sat down at the table and
began peeling a boiled potato. Anx
iety for the morrow had not Impaired
his appetite.
•‘Come, S.ilry,” lie said, cheerfully,
"set up and’ hev some supper. Come
and hev a cup of tea and some of these
poached alga. They're real good, the
way you cook ’em.” Mr. Potter had
always been Indulgent with his wife,
and now, though he was thoroughly
disgusted at her taking so strongly to
the popular delusion, he tried to cheer
her and to divert her mind from the
expected catastrophe.
"Wal,” said Mrs. Potter, coming
wearily to the table, “I s'pose I may
as well set down with you. though I
ain’t no stomach for eatin'. Mr. Gar
tier says everybody ought to be pray
in', anil prepar n’ for the end."
“Dang .iabe Garner!” exclaimed her
husband, in a burst of just indigna
tion. “He’s a dum nuisance, and ought
to be drove out of the Corners. If
he'd pay a lb tie more attention t» his
business, and try to raise something
on that weedy farm of hb n, or do bel
ter work at plasterin', when he tackles
that business, he wouldn't hev quite
so many pesky dreams. He’s a plum
fraud.” Mr. Potter savagely speared
another potato from the dish, and be
gan fiercely cutting it up with its skin
"O Silas," said Mrs. Potter, with a
reproachful look at her husband, "how
can you speak so onrespectful of Mr.
Garner? He says he's a real prophet,
ipp luted by God, and tdav the angei
old him to warn his neighbors, bo
hat they could repent of their sins,
besides, he proves all he says by reve
ation. He's a pious man, Mr. Gar
ter is, and don't want his friends to bo
Hurled into eternity onprepared. But
ive won’t quarrel about anything when
.ve’re so closte to the end of our days."
"Course we won’t,” cheerfully assent
id her husband. “We'll jest eat a
Rood hearty supper, and not worry
about the future. Where’s John?
Didn’t he come in a spell ago?"
Mrs. Potter glanced out of the open
floor, her brows contracting with an
“I declare,” she exclaimed with as
perity, the earthquake for the moment
forgotten, “If there ain’t the boy
(John was 29) over to Rogers’ again,
spoonin' with that shif’less Mary. The
Idea of his being so sot on a girl that
reads Shakespeare, and can’t make
good salt risin’ bread, let alone hop
'east! But John shan’t never marry
the minx so long’s Pm on earth.”
“Which won’t be long, 'cordin’ to
your tell, mother,” said Mr. Potter,
helping himself to another generous
dish of apple sauce. "Still, we may
not move out quite so sudden, after all;
and you know that you promised John
to give your consent to his marrying
Mary, if the world wa’nt swallowed up
on the 27th.” /
Mrs. Potter said nothing, but gazed
scornfully in the direction of the Rog
ers cottage. John's love for Mary
Rogers had been a sore trial to his
mother. Not that the good woman
did not want her son to marry; it was
simply because she did not like the
girl. Any of the other marriageable
maidens of the place would have been
satisfactory to her as a daughter-ln
law, but Mary Rogers—never, bhe
didn't like Mary simply because she
was unlike the other girls, the dif
ference being merely that Mary had
the energy to get a little education.
Mary was a pleasant, modest girl, and
did not parade her knowledge of
"grammar and sech stuff," ns Mrs.
Potter contemptuously put it. It is
said that some good generally comes
from the greatest disaster, and since
the promulgation of the dire
“prophecy,” the good woman had been
able to glean one atom of comfort—
the earthquake would prevent John's
marriage to an “educated" girl. Learn
ing Is seldom popular in the rural dis
"And Mary’s certainly a good girl,”
resumed Mr. Potter. “If I’m any
judge, she’s the most energetic girl in
the place. If she don’t'care for dances
and such, where’s the harm? P'r'aps
she can't cook jest like you experienced
housekeepers, but she'll learn. She
and John could get along first rate, I
know. I do hope Jabe Garner’s made
some mistake In his cal’lations.” Mr.
Potter’s whimsical smile was lost on
bis wife, who was intently watching
her son a3 he slowly came up the street
from the Rogers cottage.
"There won’t be no mistake,” re
turned Mrs. Potter. “It does seem
strange that some people will refuse
to heed the warnin's of inspired
prophets.” She gave a sniff, and just
then John entered the kitchen and
took his place at the table.
"Pass up your cup, John,” said ills
mother, “and have some tea. It’s
about cold, and so is the meat and the
potatoes. But I don’t s’pose it mat
ters,” she Faid, relapsing into her for
mer apathetic condition, “for the things
of earth is almost passed away, and
wo won’t need no more food.”
"Not till to-morrow morning, mn,"
replied John, cheerfully, "not till to
morrow morning. Then we’ll have u
good breakfast, such as you always
His mother gave him a look of min
gled sorrow and reproach.
“I hope you men don’t expect me to
get any breakfast to-morrow morning,
and the town and perhaps the whole
earth to be destroyed at. eight o’clock.
There won’t be no more time than
we’ll need to prepare ourselves for the
other wor d."
Her son changed the subject. "Got
all the wheat In the west field in," ho
said, “and after supper I’m going to
fix up your nasturtiums. They’re
snrawlintr all over the around."
His mother vouchsafed no reply, hut
arose from the table, and vent de
jectedly out upon the stoop.
Tho morrow dawned clear and beau
tiful. In the soft morning breeze and
tho blue sky there were no indications
of approaching doom. Mr. Potter and
John were up betimes, as usual, and
were mending a hayrack, seeming not
at all depressed by any fear of coming
disaster. At breakfast time they en
tered the kitchen, but no meal was in
sight. Mrs. Potter was feverishly pe
rusing her Bible. She implored her
husband and her son to "think onto
eternity, and to remain near her." They
promised to do both, and said that they
were not going farther away than the
“Never mind the breakfast, John,”
said Mr. Potter; "we can take a bitu
by and by, and the wheat won’t take
any harm if we let It go this forenoon.
We must look after your mother. She
Is all played out with the hard work
of the summer, and that’s the reason
she's took up so strong with that fool
prophet's Idea. But ’tain't nothin’; her
nerves Is jest unstrung. I’ll take her
on a trip to Niagry, this fall, or my
name ain't Silas Potter. She don’t see
nothing but the humdrum things of tho
country, and that must be wearin’ on
a woman. When she gits over this no
tion, we mustn't never say anything to
her about it.”
But Mrs. Potter could not rest easy
and neglect the breakfast, even If the
world were to be convulsed at eight
o'elcek sharp. The habits of years of
punctuality were strong within her,
and the thoughts that the “men folks”
were going without their breakfasts
were too much for her. Though it was
now half-past seven, a full hour later
than the usual breakfast time, she set
about getting the morning rneaj, fully

vork in a dazed, weary manner, ever
md anon glancing furtively at the lit
le clock, which ticked merrily on, all
:areless of the lapse of time. /
Mr. Potter carried an armful of green
torn Into tlie kitchen, and laid It upon
t bench by the door, then started on
its way to the injured hayrack.
Crash! crash! br-r-r-rap! Mr. Pot
ter, half way to the barn, turned quick
y at the thunderous noise, and looked
toward the house. A thick dust was
issuing from the kitchen door, and
from out the cloud came a woman’s
tries and lamentations. Heavens!
Was Jabe Garner right after all, and
had the disintegration of the world be
gan? Vet there had been no shock,
Mpd the cattle in a field close by wore
browsing contentedly, evincing no
eigns of fear. With a few rapid
'strides, Mr. Potter reached the kitchen
tloor, John hurrying after.
Upon the floor sat Mrs. Potter, a pic
ture of helpless, hopeless woo. Her
appearance was enough to bring laugh
ter from a graven image. In her lap
was a goodly supply of fried potatoes,
her clothes were dripping with milk,
while numerous strips and triangles of
wall paper lent additional decoration
to her garments. Her eyes were full
of dust, which she was vainly endeav
oring to remove with a corner of her
milk-soaked apron. From the table
ran thin streams of syrup, gravy and
pepper sauce. The dishes were in a
state of eiiaos, most of them being
broken. Utter ruin seemed to pervade
llie kitchen.
“It's a-comin’! It’s a-comin’!’’ wailed
Mrs. Potter. “The earth is bein’ swal
lered up, and the heavens rolled to
gether like a scroll. The Lord have
mercy on us all! Ouch!” The terrified
woman had placed her hand upon a hot
frying pan that lay at her side.
“Come, Salry,” said her husband,
trying to suppress his laughter, “get
up. This ain't no earthquake; it's
jest sonic of that shlf'loss Jabe Gar
ner's poor work. Look at the ceilin’.
'Bout seven ton of piaster’s fell off.
It's a mercy you wa'n’t squashed flat."
He helped his wife to her feet, ami
as she at last got the dust from her
eyes, and beheld the condition of her
kili lien. a chance came over her. The
tear of being suddenly launched Into
another world passed awuy and she
again beheld things In (heir true light.
She glanced, a little nei-'-usly, per
haps, at the clock, and said, “Good
land! Silas, don't stand there as If
15 ou was made of wood. Get to work
land help me clean up (his muss. John,
| von get the shovel and a bushel basket.
My, don't I wlsh’t (hat Garner was hero
now!" She gazed at the wreckage
about her in a manner that boded no
good to the visionary Jabe.
It was ten o’clock before breakfast
was served in the Potter kitchen that
August day, but the meal was an ox
1 celient one, notliwithstanding Its late
! ness. Mrs. Potter was almost as ac
j five and cheerful ns before the blight
) lng “prophecy” came to town. No
reference was made to the earthquake,
'save once, when John slyly remarked,
"Ma, don’t you notice that It’s con
siderably past eight o’clock?”
His mother made no reply, but mere
lj passed him the cookies.
John and Mary were married In Oc
tober and moved Into a pretty cottage
just across the street from the elder
Potters' home. Mrs. Potter, her nerves
once more In a perfectly normal state,
found much to admire in her daugh
ter-in-law; and often declared that as
an all-around sensible woman John’s
wife was a shining example. She said
the young lady's equal didn’t live In
