THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1882.
THE SHADOWY HAND. I am a traveler and collector for a 3arge house which executes many or- 4e throughout the country. When I have an extensive district, which is nfrn th arm. I freauentlv have a nrten tue case, i irequentiy nave a Msiderable sum of money about me : , A icd on several occassions .1 4f 1 1 the posses - 1 me very ithan that icn tnereot nas renaere l me very j uneasy : but no time more than that rf which i speak. I had been assigned to a large ter fiory in the west, a region rough and .mountainous, and which. I had cause to believe, abounded in lawless spirits -ho might possibly give me some trouble. A person of my calling is always supposed to have a large sum of money about him when he has ieen out for a number of days or -specks; and many is the time that J DiLve seen naople look at me with an expression on their faces that sp ke f.ouder than words, how much the would like a chance of seeing what -aiy wallet contained. Hut thus far ihey never have had their wishes gratified in this respect, and so long as ?uy faithful six-shooter does not play ;sie false, I don't mean that tliev -hall. One day, at noontime in miy wav to the next village that 1 ?ished visit. F rom him I learned hat it was twenty miles by the pub- presently." "There is a road over the moun tain," he answered, after a pause, "but it has not been used of late years, and the way is rough. Still, it can be ot over ; and as it 13 but little over foalf the distance it is by the main .'oad, you will get to Silby fully an I&our earlier than you could by that "Then I shall try tor it, tor 1 want o get there before the storm, if pos ble.n "Keep the road straight ahead, s.nd keep your eyes open," he said "Thank you, I shall do so," I an swered. "Good day." "Good day," and the landlord Taved his hand as I rode away. For hours I wound along the most xretched road I ever saw. Every -iow and then a path would branch off, leading apparently into the heart tf the forest. The afternoon passed .away and night came on, and still here was no change in the road, no -rijiii of mv beiu near to Silby. All -as the same dreary wilderness as 7hat through which I had beeu pass :,ng so many hours. With the coni jng of the darkness the rain began to fall. This added to the disquiet I already felt, for I feared that I had left the right road and got into one of those paths that led I knew not whither. Taster and faster fell the rain, and irith every moment the gloom in creased until the darkness was such that it could almost be felt. Still I plodded on, feeling there was little chance of reaching my place of des tination, but with the hope that I might stumble upon some cabin that possessed human inhabitants, where I could find fire and shelter for the night. Mre than hour passed and I had nearly given up all hopes of finding shelter, when I beheld the gleam of a light before me. En couraged by the sight. I urged my iiorse onward, and in a few minutes 3ouud myself in front of a low cabin, "through the one window of which the light gleamed that had attracted my stteution. Dismounting, I approached and rapped loudly upon the door. There wai the sound of shuffling feet within ; then it was thrown open, and a man folding a candle in his hand appeared upon the threshold, and deminded -hat I wanted. As the light flashed upon his face I had the impression that I had seen it before ; but it was gone in a moment. In answer to his demand I told him I wanted shelter ibr myself and horse for the niht, ;-snd that if in the morning he would .guide me to Silby, he would be suita bly rewarded. He made some reply, the burden of which I could not catch, owing to the driving of the rain ; and then, setting the candle down upon the floor, he came out saying, as he laid his hand .upon my horse's bridle, "Tain't very good quarters that you'll get here, snister, but perhaps it's better than St is out in the rain." "Any shelter is better than none, on such a night as this," I answered, as I dismounted. And I followed him 'round to a rude hovel, where he did the best he could for my horse's comfort. When we went into the cabin, he picked up the candle he had placed on the floor, observing a3 he did so, C'I keep bachelor's hall here, so you one of the little villages of the west, UI1"CI t.5 a U-UU1U.' ; through the glass door, our conductor ; "" a -uu . mitrms"K"mso1 Luemmed in on all sides bv high peaks v,i .x . .v S:iwthe face of a car spv a spotter, ,7" "T1' IUUU" t"'7ctl V i' TV 1 WX imfir enmmit. iiissps T . uneasy, when I rcflecicd upon the tll. ptl i.:m .iin s uXl.nur Ple ot maKing any remark, and lell , V 3 -ni j mit ip;0- t-tioi-tt otwi ! monev llbout me.

It was more of a nervousness that I could not shake oft', trv as I would.

Try as I would, I could not keep ray eyes from the wall. Did I close them, the next minute they would be again wide open. Did I turn my head, I would be looking there again almost before I knew it. What I ex pected to see, I hardly knew. Yet it came at last. Suddenly upon the wall where the light from the fire shone the brightest. there appeared the shadowy baud of a man cntemug u iuuS auu ucau,j tuuiw- l-: 1 1 A Jl.. ing: unite or a moment my gaze wa so m . ... n 4- .4 .4- 4.1. 4- I .nL.Irl nnf fit... hvcluu upuu it uuLituum my eyes, but a sound in the adjoining room broke the spell Starting hasti ly upon my elbow, I peered through the crack that was close to iny head and the sight I beheld caused another thrill, similar to that which the shadowy hand had given me. My host, with a long knife in his hand, was approaching on tip toe the door which led to my room. It was the shadow of his uplifted hand that 1 had seen upin the wall. That he had designs upon my Jife I could not doubt, and thankful for the warning I had received, I pre pared to meet him. Noiselessly I crept from the bed, and with my six shooter in. my hand, stationed my self at its foot. The door was noise lessly pushed opeu, and the would-be murderer entered the room as silent ly as a phantom, and approached the bedside. His arm, with the deadly knife grasped in his hand, was for a moment held above the bed ; and then it descended with a force that would have sent it through the body of a man, had one been lying there. This was all I wanted. Surely there was evidence enough to justify me in what I did. I raised my arm an l fired; with a groan the villain fill forward upon the couch where I had lain hardly a minute before. With ray finger still upon the trigger should another shot be needed, I struck a match and lighted the c in die; then holding it before me, I ap proached the bed. Ttie villain lay imtionles3. My bullet had found a way through his heart. You can imagine how the rest of the night pass sd to me. With the earliest dawn I mounted my horse, anl, as good luck would have it, ro.le directly towards Silby. where I arrived in a couple of hours. I was not long in searching out the proper officer, to whom I told my story, and a little later I guide 1 him back to the cabin, where they found a 1 as I had stat-id it and at once exonerated me from the blame in causing the villain's death.

He gave up one of thesa if he paid that old woman t fare. You see there was another old woman whom he called granny to be cared for, and clothes of some sort must be worn, aud there were no pen nies to spare. But it was the memory i or old granny that arose in his heart as he dropped in the coin, touched the bell and nodded 4,all right" to his pas sengers; and, as he stepped from his car to take his brief rest, he handed the old woman to the curbstone and saw her safe up on her way.

"That's Varnham Tom Varnham," replied the starter, rather eagerly, for he had a relative waiting for that place. "If you have any complaint to make, there's the office." But the old woman toddled away. Oh, the long, long winter, cold and cruel a winter full of terrible storms of snow and sleet. Two drivers on the line were badly frozen.

Life seemed very hard, but to give up that poor situation and seek for a better was not to be thought of, with granny on his hands. The passengers who rode in car No. 5 often snubbed their conductor, took him to task from the inconveniences they suffered, and abused him at their dinner tables, or as they sat before their warm grates toasting their toes while he shivered on the car plat form. Perhaps the shabby old woman with her worked lace veil may have done it also, for she rode in the car very often, though she never found herself again without a fare. ''What's the matter?" asked a pas- sen jrer. Three cars aherid stopped some one hurt," replied the other. "What is it, conductor?" "Conductor of No. 5 dropped down." was the response.

He then tried a meal of yeast powder with vinegar. He ater the veast powder and then took a lrintr of extremely potent vinegar to wash it down. At first there was a feeling of glad surprise in his stomach.Vhich rapidly gave place to unavailing re morse. A flan of yeast powder in an Indian's midst doesn't seem to be pre pared for a pint of vinegar, and the result of such an unfortunate circum stance is not gratifying. Every little while a look of pain would come over the features of the noble child of the forest, aud then he would jump aboui seventeen feet and try to kick a cloud out of the sky. Then he would sit down and think over his past life. It touk about a week for him to get back to where he dared to get up another meal fr himself. Then he fricasseed a couple of pounds of laundry soap and ate that. Soap is all right for ex ternal purposes or for treating a pair of soiled socks, but it does not assimi late with the gastric juicp. readily, and those who have tried laundry soap as a relish do not seem to think that it will ever arrive at any degree of pro minence as an article of diet. That is why this untutored child of nature swore. He had never received the benefits of early training in profanity and his language, therefore, was dis connected and rambling ; but when we consider that he was ignorant of our language, and that every little while he had to s:op to hold his digester with both hands and dig great holes in the earth with his toes, the remarks didn't seem altogether irrelevant.
