MUGGERTON
[Original.]
I was sitting in my editorial den pre
paring matter for the Sunday edition
when a big muscular fellow who looked
like a prize fighter came iu and asked
for employment. I feared that his real
Intention was to rob me and dallied
with him.
"Any experience?" I asked.
"Lots. I worked three weeks on the
Bee. That's after I left college.
a month ago."
At mention of college I started.
"Any creative faculty?"
"You bet! I can flipg off a story any
time."
"I'm thinking of running a short sto
ry every Sunday. Sit down there and
let me see what you can do."
He took a Beat at a vacant reporter's
desk and wrote this story:
"The nineteenth century was just
twenty-five years old. It was the win
ter season. By the wayside stood a
hotel, with a barroom just off the of
fice. The landlord was absent, and his
daughter, a beautiful girl of eighteen,
sat sewing behind the counter. Tho
door opened, and a young man, a regu
lar stalwart, walked up to the counter
and registered. He wrote in a fine
round hand, 'Dick Tutt, Central City,
Colo.'"
I paused and looked at the author.
In 1825 the Rocky mountains where
Central City is located had probably
never seen a white man.
'I'm a cowboy, I am,' snid Mr. Tutt,
sweeping the floor with his broad brim.
'I won $700 at faro off the boys punch
in' cows around "Central," and I've
come east to blow it in.'
"As he spoke he drew a bead on the
girl with his eagle eye and brought her
down like an antelope. Talcing a key
off a rack, she handed it to him, and
he was about to go upstairs when a
party came in smoking 'long nines'
and took possession of the big stove in
the center of the room. Mr. Tutt
paused and watched tliem. They soon
got to kicking up a row, and the girl
started for the telephone to call the po
lice/'
"You've made a slight mistake," I
remarked to the author. "The tele
phone was invented half a century
after the dale of your story."
lie glared and ground his teeth like
a lion poked with a long stick, and 1
went on reading.
"Mr Tutt walked up to the lady and
said:
'If you want these galoots tumbled
out I reckon I can do the job.'
"'No, sir,' replied the girl softly
'we never allow any shooting in this
house.'
'Sliootin'!' exclaimed the gentleman.
'What do I need of a gun with such
muscle?' And, rolling up his sleeve,
he showed a biceps that measured a
good, twenty inches,
"Without waiting for permission hS
sidled up to the man making the most
no|se and, straightening his crooked
arm, sent the fellow sailing like an ice
boat along the floor till he brought up
against the baseboard. Mr. Tutt then
turned and faced the rest of the gang.
It happened that Kid Malione was in
the crowd, at that time training for a
fight with Pat McCracken. lie step
ped to the front, and a ring was
formed. The kid was a featherweight
With fancy list training, and the cow
boy was strong as a bull buffalo.
While the kid was dancing around the
cowboy broke his guard, got a clutch
on him and, raising him in the air,
threw him into the next room.
"This ended the fight. The gang
picked up the unconscious kid and ran
him out, for they didn't know but the
police might come in any minute.
'IIow can I ever thank you enough?'
remarked the young lady, going back
to her sewing machine behind the
counter."
Again I paused to think. My recol
lection was that the sewing machine
did not come into use before 1850.
"At that moment the old man walked
'Father.' said the girl, 'here's a
guest from the wild and woolly west.
A gang of rowdies came in a few min
utes ag and made a disturbance. The
gentleman cleaned them out'
'My friend,' said the landlord,
'what can I do for you? "Anything in
this house is none too good for Riley,"
quoting a popular song.'
'Stranger,' said the cowboy, 'you've
got only one thing I want, your daugh
ter.'
'I'd rather part with my new Colt's
pistol or my typewriting machine, but
if she's willing you have my consent.'
"When they were married the cow
boy wore a woolen shirt, corduroy
trousers, boots and spurs. The bride
wore white muslin."
Having finished the story, I looked up
at the author.
"Did you take a full course in col
lege?" I asked.
"Well, no. I was brought in for a
special when the varsity team went
into training for the annual football
game. I left college Just before the
examination."
"I see. You are"—
"Muggerton."
"The tackle that laid everybody out
opposed to your college last season?"
"The same."
"Why did you place the scene of
your story so far back as to time?"
"Well, you see, I ain't up to what's
going on, and by the looks of you I
thought you might not be either, so I
set it back where the mistakes would
not be noticed."
"You've made a blunder on every
line. How would you like to run a
page of sports?"
"Bully!"
"Very well. I'll Btart you In at $30
week." BARTON WILLIAMSON.
