It was a little town In Central
Wisconsin noted in particular for
nothing. It had never produced a
president of the United ~ States, a
noted evangelist or a prizefighter; it
had never been blotted from earth
by the fiery vomitings of the interior,
or been swept from the face of the
globe by the heartless flirtation of a
cyclone; . it '-. had never experienced
boodle aldermen or a divorce court;
it didn't even contain a local poet,
and an elopement had not emanated
from its peaceful bosom for 10, these
many years. Nevertheless "its 400

of life," somebody contemporary with i
the past has left us. We must move.
Not only does this hold true when we
are several months- in arrears with
our rent, when we have used the firm's
cash in private speculation, or - when
we have sat down on a 7 pin, but at all
times. No matter what we are, who
we are, or where we are, our mechan
ism is in motion, and we keep that
part of it which we can ; control' in , a
more, or less great degree of activity
most of . our ; conscious hours.
We may think as we see j the . habit- |
ual loafer with that far-away, ' meat
ax expression illuminating his ambi
tious countenance, ; snugly stretched
behind the rural box stove, with just
enough of his anatomy hooked over
the front of a crippled chair to keep
him from making a dent in the floor,
and with his two ill-kept feet pushed
so far Into space that it makes his
pants a foot too short, as we behold
him with his rag-jointed pipe filled
with tobacco, the fumes of whick.

hours, with hair peeping out from un

by work, but by keeping close to the
stove— which has not felt the caressing
stroke of the brush . since Matilda threw
him over for the shoemaker, a shirt
front which with mock benevolence
has lightened the burden of the cus

shaded around the knuckles— we
gaze upon him in all his native beauty,
his unsophisticated glory, we may
think: "That is a motionless object;
he is too lazy to move." But under
neath that placid exterior there are
movements of which we little dream.
There, certainly is life, and "while
there's life, there's hope"— and several
other things. r. vy-
So the natives of the little town In
question busied themselves with some
thing. To be sure they didn't sprain
their ankles catching street cars, or
write letters of advice to the mayor, or
rob graveyards for medical colleges,
but, instead, went to prayer meeting,
raised beans, and ■ talked learnedly
around the grocery fire of the ad va
lorem tax on nails. - - -
And boys, O boys, the boys of that
town! They were not at heart-vic
ious, cruel or wicked, ; only; wild and
naughty, full of exuberant, spirit—
spirits— which must find vent.
"So nobody seemed particularly sur
prised to find one quiet Sabbath morn,
ing a -large brindle- cat suspended by
the tail from a. board nailed horizon,

, seventy-five feet up. . There she hung.
, with about two feet of string between

ingness of air and crying piteously for.
There seems to be a hidden force
| couched : within a murder, a suicide,*
j an execution and a breach of promise
i case. which attracts people. I suppose
, this same force drew our heathen an-' I
: cestors around the platform upon i
I which an unfortunate neighbor for. j
] some. real or imaginary minor offense'
. was to be goaded from this world into fj
the next with hot irons. . It is - this
. j same power which holds people rivet

daring aeronaut's assistant suddenly
caught through the seat of his pants
Iby the balloon-hook and carried to
J "realms beyond the skies." And 'it
must have been this same identical '
force which gathered that crowd
around the liberty-pole. I
The rope which. on gala days served j
to elevate the star-spangled banner* a
hundred feet above terra flrma had
been pulled up and was -tied,' like the
cat, to the board.
Billy Jones,. who last year had res
cued Deacon Sax's Holstein heifer
from an ignominious death in the mire,
heroically volunteered to climb the
pole. Carefully hanging his Sunday,
coat on a neighboring wire fence and
I tightening his suspenders -to take up
■ j the slack in his pants, which the ab
• sence of the coat revealed, he clasped
the pole to his manly bosom, twined
j his legs around It, and commenced to
"shin. But - somehow he didn't pro
, gress very rapidly. As ■• fast as he
gained a foot he slipped back. twelve
: inches. He then made a startling dls
• covery— the pole was greased!
I - Save for a suppressed giggle from a
; sacrilegious boy in the rear of the as
semblage, silence reigned supreme for
• a full three minutes; • then, ; like the
• storm which . succeeds a calm, there
came a perfect shower of suggestions.
■ ' Finally the advice of ■ Cobble Soule,
; the shoemaker, was ' acted upon. Some
said It wouldn't work, but they'd try
it, anyway. They would ; nail ladders
together, then some one could go up,
saw off the board, and the cat would
fall upon a feather, bed "placed below
for the purpose. '-. Farmer Stubble
thought it would be better to cut the
string with a corn-knife, but the ma
jority held that to saw off the board .
would do. - -
li Men scattered in all directions and I
came back, one by one, carrying lad- j
| ders of all shapes and sizes and in all j
■ stages of decomposition. Dr. Pha- i
langes was seen In the distance tug- I
j ging manfully at a twelve-footer, re
| sembling that by which he had climbed |
i Into his profession, in that it had but i
I two rounds, one at the top and one i
i at the bottom. . ■. , *
j In .ten minutes no less than thirty I
| ladders were standing against as many
• adjacent trees, and the work of rescue
j began in dead earnest. .
The poor victim of some heartless
j joker still clutched frantically at some
thing she couldn't find, and jawed with,
periodical regularity. She seemed to
be too exhausted to double up and
writhe in agony. All she could do or
seemed inclined to attempt was to move
all four legs slowly back ; and forth
and utter ■an occasional plaintive cry
which didn't sound quite natural, but,
considering her situation, her auditors
were not disposed to be harshly crit
• leal.'; ■ - ' ■*;'.
_ The crowd was constantly increasing.
It now -not only contained men. and
boys, but also women and children. No
less than twenty women claimed the
cat, and were loud in the expression
of their grief and appeals for. careful
ness and dispatch ln the rescue.
v The Infirm old constable had mount
ed his aged pony, and with arms dis
played, was riding up and down ' the
one street of the unostentatious ■ little
village in search of the blood-thirsty
wretch who could so heartlessly tor
ment an ■ Innocent ■ dumb 7 creature. - A
big black ; patrlrch perched - himself
upon the hay scales and , watched the
proceedings with Interest.
At last two substantial sixteen-foot
ladders were firmly knit together.
Then they tnought they'd stand them
up against the pole to see how far up
they would reach. Fifty eager hands
got in each other's way and after much
herculean struggling the structure was '
stood on end, then toppled over against
the pole. But the pole was too slippery
—it wouldn't stick, and with a tre
mendous crash came down and killed
Jim Bogg's yellow dog Towz, who had
gone to slerp on the feather bed.
By silent common consent the scheme
was abandoned. Billy Blink said that
if they'd sandpaper off the grease he'd
climb up. Elder Muggins thought the
plan a good one. So several reams of
[ sandpaper were brought and Deacon
| Sax and the patient elder began to
■ rub. The third pass that the deacon
made the paper slipped off and barked
his assistant's nose. The elder said
something loudly and . distinctly, then
seemed to be ashamed of himself, slip
ped out of the crowd and went home.
I Then the deacon happened to ask him- ]
i self what he was going to do. when he j
i had scraped as high as he could reach |
and he too, departed, murmuring by
way of excuse as -he left something
about "lightin' up the church."
Somebody suggested chopping - down
the pole. "No; that would kill the
cat." Then some one said "Shoot her."
That • would .' probably kill ' her, * too.
Then everybody looked at the cat and
thought. . -
.After a few mlutes of silent medita
tion : the ; idea » simultaneously ■ found
lodgment in five or six heads that the
proper th'ng to . do ' under . the circum
stances was to shoot her and put her
beyond : misery. This Idea became
prevalent, and the question "Where's
Wild Bill?" echoed ominously. Bill,
who • evidently was not on good terms
with i the * local . barber, who could eat
raw meat,', and who always slept with
his boots on. did not deign to answer,
but turned on his heel and staggered
silently away. - Everybody knew that

ently he returned with a shiny Win- ] <
Chester thrown carelessly across his j *
arm. Then there arose a murmur— of |
admiration from the small boys, of j I
horror from the women. But this I 1
didn't have any effect on Bill. He ev
idently , knew nis business, and went . 1
at it in a businesslike manner. Hay- (
ing selected his position, and, with an | <
authoritative gesture of his hand waved j <
back the crowd, , he examined his gun I
critically for a moment, studied the I *
movements of his intended victim, then ]
came that significant click, click, and ,
Bill brought the gun to his shoulder i
and squinted along the barrel. A
thought seemed to move him. He low- I *
ered the . gun, • and for the flrst time
spoke. "Hadn't I better shoot off the j
strings?" he asked. Some, one an- i
swered, "No; it would kill her to fall ,
that far. Let her have it. Bill." And
Bill fired and stepped complacently
b*»ck to "let the old cat die."
But she didn't die. - She still strug
gled and yowed, just as if nothing had ,
happened. Bill stood aghast, and some
one was heard to say, "He's drunk!"
He. tried it again and again with the
same result; but after the fifth shot It
was plainly evident that he had bored
a hole through her head. Still she
didn't die. Here was a mystery. in
deed! "That cat ain't -mortal!" said
Bill, and he walked disgustedly away.
During ail this time there had been
leaning against a wormy scrub-oak in
the background " a scroggly youth,
whose . name , appeared -on the public
school registration book (with the larg
est number of tardy marks .to its
credit) as "Silas Glauber." He had
been a much Interested - spectator to
all the transpiring events of the hour,
but so far his part only, had -been to
punctuate . them with foolish . sugges
tions and giggles. He now came: for
ward, and in some way gained the at
tention of an influential member of the
rescuing party.
j "If we could get a rope over the
board," he said. "I'm a-thinkin' we
could piijU it ' down. It can't abe very
solid, for the feller what nailed it there
couldn't have had much to "stand on
while he was a drivin" of 'em In."
"But how can we get a rope over
there, you blockhead?" asked the
"We might tie a clothes-line to the
ramrod of a musket and shoot It over "
drawled Silas, as he transferred a
quarter-section of Virginia weed from
one cheek to the other.
This had the appearance of being a
very bright idea, and Silas immediate
ly rose several degrees in the minds
of many. His father only seemed to
view the plan with suspicion.
This suggestion, however, was acted
upon. Numerous clothes lines were
brought, and an old musket with an
iron ramrod made its appearance upon
the scene. The lines were tied togeth
er, one end being fastened to the ram
rod and the other to a neighboring
tree. The ramrod was put into the
gun on top of the load, the gun aimed
several feet above the cat and dis
The first attempt was successful.
The rod just cleared the board, and,
having spent its force, dropped with
the rope down on the other side. A
dozen hands grasped each end of the
line, gave a light pull, and cat, board
and ropes made a dive for mother
earth. The cat uttered an unearthly
yell as she struck the ground, and
clock wheels flew ln all directions!
Yes, it was 1 too evident to bear dis
pute. They had worked two hours in
a hot Sabbath sun rescuing a dead cat
filled -with patent gquakers and clock
wheels! And .now all departed for
elsewhere, each vowing silently, sol
emnly, , that somewhere, somehow. in
the great, far-reaching and glorious
future -he would find : sweet, soothing
revenge In gluttonous quantities.
