A Tale of the Flatwoods
Auther of **Tho Blue Moon**
Copyright by The Bobbe-Merrill G*
8YNOPSIS. —On the banka of
the Wabash stand Texle Colin
and Jack Warhope, young and
very much In love. Texle la the
only daughter of old Pap Simon,
rich man and money-lender. Jack
la the orphan bound boy of Pap
Simon who had foreclosed a
mortgage on the Warhope estate.
At first Texle and Jack talk sadly
of Ken Colin, the girl’s missing
brother. Then Jack says that in
ten days hla servitude will be
over, that he will ride out Into
the big world to seek his fortune.
Both know what that will mean
to them. Texle and Jack talk of
the red lock of "Rod Colin," In
herited by Ken. And Jack says
he's coming back ns soon as he
finds gold in California. Then
arrives the new preacher. Rev.
Caleb Hopkins. Pap Simon Intro
duces the villagers to the new
preacher, who was a college mate
of Ken. At supper at the Colin
home the preacher tells how the
boy killed a gambler and disap
peared. His father attributes
Ken's fall from grace to his red
lock of hair. Then Pap Simon
has a sort of stroke, brought on
by reading a letter from Ken.
"somewhere In New York," who
curses his father on his death
bed. A postscript by another
hand cays he Is dead.
The Room Was Deadly Still.
Buckeye was the capital of the Flat
woods. Snugged away in a pocket of
the bluffs where Eagle run breaks into
the valley of the Wabash, it never
woke up but once—when a rumor
trickled In from somewhere that a
railroad was headed that way. But
the rumor subsided. Buckeye went
back to sleep, and the big world for
got that It was there.
Zeke PoJlck's general store was the
largest In the place. Zeke sold every
thing% from onion sets to grindstones,
Including whisky—barrels of It, from
“squirrel" to mellow old Bourbon—
right from the spigot. A flatwoods
man could buy It as he wanted it,
from a drink to a Jugful, but “furri
ners" had to be identified to get It In
quantities less than a quart—an iden
tification quite as exacting, though of
a different sort, as that required to
borrow money from Simon Colin—
which is another way of saying that
a man’s face went as far In the Flat
woods as his note.
-—th«|.Mildly tv nvnnltvft of day
following the old banker’s collapse
over the remarkable letter—no syl
lable of which had been allowed to
get beyond the red-roofed cottage—
Uncle Nick Willies, a tall, iron-gray old
man with twinkling eyes, sat smoking
a qultely meditative pipe In the one
chair of the store.
It was a variegated company thnt
grouped around him In the dim half
light of the feeble coal-oil lamp, with
Its charred wick and smoke-stained
There was Zeke Polick, the post
master and proprietor of the store, a
little old rag of a man; A1 Counter
man, a one-eyed fisherman, with a
complexion like a smoke-dried bacon
rind; the blacksmith, with his hard
arms, and hands so horny they could

hold a piece of Iron hot enough to
sizzle water. Village loafers were
there—aimless, doles* drifters who had
nowhere else *o go.
Besides these. Loge Belden, said to
he a Kentucky mountain man, tall,
lanky and Just comfortubly In his
prime, with a reddish-sandy mustache
and goutee, leaned on the end of the
counter nearest the door. Little was
known of hlin except that he and his
sister had Intely moved Into an old
cabin on one of Slinon Colin's farms
up at the head of Eagle hollow, and
that he had taken the Job of clearing
the timber from an upland field and
making It ready for the plow. Some
said he hod been a pearl fisher, others
that he was "wanted” diown at Vin
cennes. The Flatwoods held him at
arm's length—and waited.”
“Rlcollect Jim Ruromidge, don't y’u,
£ekeT*' Uncle Nick remarked.
“Jim Uummldge, reckon I do that,”
piped Zeke's thin voice, ns he leaned
(•nvsrf art a— the counter. “Ain't
go’n’ t’ frglt ’ln», nuther. not right
noon I ain’t. Went off V M’sourl owin’
me a dollar and thirty-four cents, and
I never did git It”
“Aw, well. Zeke, don’t worry none.”
Uncle Nick rejoined, “y’u've wormed It
nuten some other pore devil b’ this
time, raore’n likely.”
The blacksmith slapped hla heavy
hand down on his thigh, the others
laughed, the fisherman’s frisky eye
twinkled and he swore merrily.
Zeke said never a word, but the ex
pression In his little rat eyes might
have meant any number of things.
“Blamedest feller—that Jim Rum
mldge." Uncle Nick went on. “Ther 1
werdn’t nothin’ but what him an’ that
brother SI o’ hls’n wus up to when
they wus youngsters. Rlcollect one
Sund’y Jim tuck it Into ’ls head t’ yoke

“Sh-b-h —!” warned Zeke, “hyur
comes the parson.”
Almost with the words, the dapper,
nervously alert young preacher en
tered the door. In spite of his studi
ous air of riper years, he couldn't have
been more than six or seven and
twenty. The trade-mark of his call
ing was hung all over him. His shiny
boots, elaborate frock coat, neck stock,
high hat and enormous spectacles
fairly shrieked schoolmaster.
And yet one could not help wonder
ing why fate had set such a tnnn ns
the Itev. Caleb Hopkins to the busi
ness of keeping school. Dissociated
from all suggestion of theology and
chalk, his figure was about all that
could be desired in a man—height a
trifle above medium; well set up; lithe
and graceful—and his face —nothing
short of handsome, only for a certain
air of peering severity.
To look nt him as he entered the
door—six feet of lithe young man
hood smothering under Its ascetic, not
to say somber, Investure—one would
never have guessed that there was
anything wrong with his health, and
yet that was precisely what had
brought him to the Flatwoods.
And now os he walked past Loge
Belden slouched against the counter,
he stopped and stood staring curi
ously at him.
Belden seemed on the point of re
senting the look, when the Reverend
Caleb quickly turned away, and with
a nod passed the group around Uncle
Nf<*k and wfent*'on to tlfi post office 7
window at the rear of the room.
“What d’ y’u say we ask ’lm t’
g* ’long,” whispered A1 Counterman
to Uncle Nick os the young minister
stood waiting for Zeke Polick to ad
just his dirty spectacles on his thin
nose, turn up the smoky lamp and
laboriously sort over the meager bunch
of letters and postcards.
"Y’u da’sn’t,” Uncle Nick answered
“Watch me, an’ y’u’U see whuther
I do’st. I ain’t n-feared of no parson.
“Mr. Hopkins,” he called a moment
later, stepping In front of the young
preacher as he passed toward the
door, “a passel of us fellers Is goln’
a-selnln’ up around Alpine Island In
the mornin’. I reckon y’u wouldn’t
like t’ go long, n’r nothin’, would y’u?”
“Who are going, did you say?”
“Oh, me an’ Uncle Nick, thar, an’
Big Jack Warhope."
“I have promised to be nt the social

to avail myself of your kind Invita
The fisherman stood fingering Ills
hat and stnrlng at the door long after
the minister had passed out, the
twinkle gone from his puckered ono
eyo, a puzzled look on his smoked ba
con rind of a face.
“Well, I’ll be derned 1 Wouldn’t
thnt singe y’ur whiskers! I dunno ylt
whuther he said ’e'd come T not.”
Uncle Nick threw I is hend back and
fairly roured, while the postmaster
rumpled up his dry countenance Into u
half begrudged grin.
“Course he said 'e’d come. Whar
wus you brutig up at, anyhow? Didn’t
y'u hyur Mm say he’d ’vail hlmse’f of
y’ur kind Invytntion? Course he’s
culc'luting t' come. Zeke, we’ll hnf
t' git A1 a new spellin’ book un’ start

“Well,” muttered the fisherman, ns
his face cleared nnd the twinkle cume
hack to his waggish one eye, “ull 1 got
t* say Is: he can use up more diction
ary a’sayln’ yes than any mun I ever
bear’d. But ain't 'e some looker—

"Most too good-lookin’,” piped Zelce.
"Aw, dunno, Zeke,” Uncle Nick ob
served. ‘"talfft go’n' t' hurt 'lm none.

dancing at Uncle Nick's remurk, "If

“That ain’t neither hyur n’r there,"
argued Zeke. “That ain’t no more’n
his duty, an’ what the taxpayers back
whar ’e come from ’r* payin’ Mm f’r.”
"Duty ’r no duty,” rejoined the fish
erman, “It's a (j ern good sign.”
“All the same,” snapped the post
master, “If i had a gal—which I ain’t
got, n’a never had—l wouldn’t want

Sal Is, an’ she shouldn’t be, nuther.”
“Aw, well, Zeke.” drawled Uncle
Nick, “If she tuck after ’er daddy In
looks, I reckon .they wouldn’t be no
great danger.”
The raucous laugh that followed
from the crowd jarred the postmaster.
"I don’t care what y’u say." he
shrilled In his high, thin voice, "Texie
Colin’s got good looks enough, If that’s
what y’u want. I dunno what Slme
Colin’s a-thlnkin' about. It ain’t like

“Ain’t much more’n a kid, nuther,”
the blacksmith remarked, apparently
thoughtfully Impressed, as he searched
his pockets for a match.

pipe from between his lips and sat
tnpplng the item against his thumb
“I Mow y’ur not fur off.” he answered
meditatively to the postmaster’s look.
“Big Jack's twenty past, an' I’ve hear’n
say Texie*was three years younger to
a day. That would bring ’er right
around seventeen ’r eighteen.”
“An’ s’poson’ she Is—every lick of
it," the postmaster went on. “A gal
uln’t got none too much sense at eight
een—an’ ther’ ain’t no gal but what
can he drawed on, .If the right feller
comes along.”
‘‘Hoi’ on thar, Zeke, hoi’ on!” Uncle
Nick had been leunlng back against a
cracker barrel. His chair came down
with a bung, and his voice rang like
struck metal. “You’re goln’ a leetle
too fur. They’s thousan's an’ tens o’
thousan’s o' gals that cayn’t be drawed
on. no matter what feller comes along.
"Ther’s a heap more nice gals than

looked at them things right. The man
d’serves t’ be judged accordin’ t’ the
same way the gal Is —only more so.”
A hush fell over the group. The
blacksmith sat patting his foot softly
on the floor. Presently his calloused
hand came down upon his knee with a
sounding slap, while his eyes, dull at
most times from long looking Into the
forge fire, lighted with the fervor of
his feelings.
“Good you. Uncle Nick ! I agree
with y’u complete. That's my kind o’
preachln’—right t’ the p'lnt.”
“My sentiments to a hair," chimed
in the fisherman. “I alw’ys takes the
girl's part an' be d—d t’ the mun.
That’s how I lost this eye. It wus
when—but no matter, I haln’t never
b'grudged It—”
The fisherman’s lone eye settled Into
a vacant stur* at a crack In the floor;
the hurd lines of his face deepened.
Could the others have glimpsed hack
of that seamed and weather-beaten
mask, they might have read there the
deep graven rnamory of a day that waa
dead—a dream and an awakening, a
romance and a tragedy—that had
driven hi in, as the storm drives the
driftwood, with what the world calls
a crime sluted against him, to bury
his life here with his dog and fishing
geur, alone la his bachelor cabin on
the river short.
