A CLIMATE WORSHIPER. By James Barton Adama. Do I like the climate, stranger, in these mountains? Well, I guess There ain’t anv other answer to your question ’ceptin’ "yes”; An’ it be a-stretchin’ o’ the honest truth to say That I wuship it, an’ tell it so a dozen times a day. Llssen to my wife a-slngin’, voice as clear as any bell, See the spring that's In her action, drawln’ water at the well; See them youngsters playin’ yonder an’ a-hollerin’ in glee. Then switch ’round yer eyes a trifle till you focus ’em on me. Jes’ two years ago to-morrer, If my mem’ry’s got no flaw Since we clum into the wagon fur to leave ol’ Arkansaw; Faces all about the color o’ the yaller est corn pones. An’ the ager havin’ shaken all the flesh off of our bones. Sca’cely looked like human bein’s, more like skeletons we were. Wife a-hackin' with consumption that was ketchin’ hold o’ her. An ’the younguns both a-coughin’, me a-worryin’ till—well. Got discouraged till I wasn’t wuth a pinch o’ salt in hell! Tuk a ranch here in this valley, and we wondered if the same Mightn't some day bo our grayeyard as a wind-up o’ the game; Slep’ with doors and winde’rs open fur to let the climate in. An’ we observed that somethin’ was a-paddin’ out our skin. Wife got skittish in her action; kids be gun to romp and play, ’Stead o’ mopin’ ’round an’ cryin’ an’ complainin’ all the day; As fur me. I quit my frettin’ an’ begun to take OVI meat. An’ ’t’d make a lean hog jealous fur to see the way I eat! Do I like the climate, stranger? Likin’ ain’t no proper word. Fur I wushup it, by jingo! nex’ to wush ippln’ the Lord, Fur it’s rid the hull caboodle o’ the freezing breakbone chills An* the Arkansaw attachments shape o’ country doctor’s bills. An’ the lungs my wife's a-usin’; well, jes’ llssen to her sing: They’re as sound as ary dollar in their clear an’ silv’ry ring. An’ there ain’t a man a-livin’ in this hull long mountain stretch That kin flop me in a rassle, any holt they want to ketch! HOWARD E. BURTON, ASSAYER & CHEMIST LEAUVILLE. COLORADO.
