We submit the story for your judgment, hoping that you may laugh and wonder, as many others have, when reading the quaint speculations of Big Jack. CHAPTER IV. The parson did not enjoy his sup per. His day had been one of tire some, nervous preparation for a new kind of life; but Mr. Small was in hearty sympathy with all nature, which includes a good appetite (if it is not founded on a good appetite), and he ate with a rapid action and a keen relish, talking as he ate, in a way to provoke appetite, or if not to provoke, at least raise a sigh of re gret for its absence. "Thar!" said Mr. Small, with sigh ing emphasis, "that lets me out on creature-comforts, in the grub line, till to-morrer. Yer don't waltz in very hearty on this grub, Parson. All right; I'll bake yer an oat-meal cake soon's I git done with my bread, an' mix yer a canteen o' milk for to morrer's lunch." "Thank you, indeed, Mr. Small." "Yere, Gov," said Mr. Small, as he piled the greased frying- pan full of broken bread, and poured out a tin cup of coffee, "Yere's yer hash!" to which Gov responded silently by carrying the pan and cup to the fire, and then sitting down on the ground, to eat and drink in his own fashion. "These yere Injins is curious," said Mr. Small, in his running com mentary on things in general, as he actively passed from one point in his culinary duties to another; "they won't eat bacon, but they'll eat bacon-grease an' bread, or beef an' bacon-greese; an' they won't eat cheese, but they'll eat dead hoss. I b'lieve the way to whip Injins would be to load connons with Lim burg cheese an' blaze away at 'em!" "As the Chinese shoot their ene mies in war with pots of abominable smells." "Yes; I've heerd before o' the Chinese way o' makin' war, but reckon 'taint the smell Injins keer for it's mighty hard to knock an Injin with a smell! Injins, leastway this yere tribe, hain't got no nose fer posies. They got some kind o' superstition about milk an' cheese, though I reckon they must hev drinked milk when they's little." And Mr. Small chuckled at the de licacy of his own illusion to the font of aboriginal maternity. "Don't yer smoke, Parson?" "Not of late years," replied Mr. Signal; and paced up and down meditatively past the fire, gazing at the darkening sky. "I formerly en joyed a cigar, occasionally, but my dyspepsia has cut me off from that vice." "Well I've got this bread bakin' an' reckon I'll take a smoke. Yore, Gov, done yer suppert Scoot up thar. an' throw down them beds, so we can hev a seat." The silent and ready compliance of the Indian en abled Mr. Small as he tossed the rolls of bedding over by the fire, to remark; "Yere, Parson, take a seat! This yere's high style front settin' room, fust floor. You'll want yer legs tomorrer, though yer kin ride ef yer want to; but it's powerful tejus, ridin' a bull-wagon." And he sat down on his roll of bedding to cut his plug tobacco, fill his short pipe, and watch the process of bread- baking while he enjoyed his smoke. The reverend also sat down on his bed. The Indian sat on the ground, at the opposite Bide of the fire, hum ming the low, buzzing, dismal ditty of his remote ancestors. The stars came quietly out in the clear sky, and the dry, still air seem ed to listen to the coming on of the innumerable host. So still O, bo crystaline still is a summer's night on an Arizona desert. "Yer see, Parson," began Mr. Small, after a short, quiet consulta tion with his pipe, "they say 'at bull punchln's slow business, but they don't know. People kin tell what they don't know powerful slick-like. Let some o' them talkin' fellers what knows all- about this business in three squints from a stage-coach winder let 'em try it on. Let 'em stand in once an' chop wood, build a fire, cut bacon, make bread an' coffee, an' so ou, all in the same minute an' do it faster'n they kin write it down in a letter, an' they wont talk so much with their mouth!" "Yes; I was just, in the moment you began to speak, reflecting on the multiplicity of your duties and the rapid execution of them. Does not your life wear upon you terribly?" "No, sir. Hit's head-work does it. Seems to me when a feller has a big idee in his head, an' is jest a-boomin' with the futur, an' look in' forward, work doesn't hurt him a derned bit. Hit's hangin' back on the yoke 'at wears a feller out an' a ox, too. When I used to foller a plow, by the day's work fer wages, an' haviu' no pint ahead to steer to no place to unload at I wasn't no more ac than a cripple in a county poor house!" "What is your great aim at this time? if I may be so impolite as to make such an inquiry on so short an acquaintance," queried" Mr. Sighal, in a soft voice and balmy manner. "O, no; nothin' imperlite about it. Open out on me, Parson, when you feel like it. I hain't got ho secrets. My great aim is to play my game up to the handle. Every feller's got a game. Some's politics, some's religion, some's big money, some's land, some's keards, some's wimmen an' good clo'es, some's good, some's bad,"said Mr. Small, rapidly, punc tuating his remarks with puffs of to bacco smoke: "an' my game is to have the best eight yoke o' cattle, an' the best wagons, an' pull the biggest load to yoke, in these yere mountains; and then," he added, laughing and stroking his long bronze beard, "I kinder think there's a solid square-built gal some'rs what I ain't jest seen yit, that's a-waitin' in her daddy's front porch fer a feller like me an' the old man he's gittin' too old, an' hain't got no other children, an' he's jest a-walk-in' up an' down under the shade trees, expectin' a feller about my size an' build, what kin sling ink in the Bank o' Californy for about ten thousan' cash, honest money. How's that fer high, Parson?" And Mr. Small roared with his loudest laugh, until the parson and Gov joined sympathetically. "A very laudable endeavor, Mr. Small; and let mo say that I hearti ly wish you God-speed!" "Amen, Parson! I don't know ef I kin make it. But that's my game; an' ef I can't make it well, hit's better to hev a game an' lose it than never to.play at all. Hain't it, Parson?" "It surely is. No good endeavor Í3 ever entirety lost. God, in His great providence, gives germinating power to the minute seed of the plant which grew and died last year, though the seed may have been blown "away." "Do you believe," said Mr. Small, after a long pause, in which he rais ed the bake-kettle ,lid with the point of a stick, and piled more hot coals upon the top "do you b'lieve, fer certain dead sure that God looks after all these small things?" "Surely, Mr. Small. Have we not the blessed promises in the good book?" "I don't jest reck'lect what we've got in the good book. But do you, as yer mammy's son not as a par son do you b'lieve it?" "If I at all know my own thoughts and convictions, Mr. Small, I do." After another long pause and strict attention to the baking bread: "Parson, gittin sleepy?" "Not at all, Mr. Small." "Thinkin' 'bout somethin', p'r'r haps?" "I was reflecting whether I had done my whole duty, and answered your question as fully as it should be answered." "Well, whenever you feel sleepy, jest spread your lay-out where you chuze, an' turn in. Needn't mind me. I'll fuss round yere an' smoke a good while yit. Thar hain't no ceremony at this hotel the rooms is all fust-class 'partments." "Thank you, Mr.. Small," said Mr. Sighal; and then, after some pause, resuming audibly the thread of his own thought, he asked; "Mr. Small, do not you believe in the overruling providence of God?" "Which God?" "There Í3 but one God." "I don't poo it, Parson. On this yere Pacific Coast, gods is numerous Chinee gods, Mormon gods, Chris tian gods, an' the Bank o' Californy." "Perhaps so, Mr. Small it is written there be gods mauy; but there is one only true God, Jesus Christ tLe righteous." "Don't see it, Parson." The Reverend Mr. Sighal rose quick! vta.his feet, and pulled down his vest .at the waistband, like a warrior unconsciously feeling for the girding of his armor. "Do you deny the truth of tho sacred Scriptures, Mr. Small?" "I don't deny nothin', 'cept what kin come before me to be recogniz ed. What I say is, I don't see it." "You don't see it?" "No, sir!" emphasis on the sir. "Perhaps not, with the natural eye-sight; but with the eye of faith, Mr. Small, you can see it, if you humbly and honestly make the ef fort." "I hain't got but two eyes no extra eye fer Sunday use. What I can't see, nor year, nor taste, nor smell, nor feel nor make up out o' recollection an' hitch together, hain't nothin' to me. That's my meanin' when I say, 'I don't see it.' " "I am deeply grieved to hear you speak so, Mr. Small." "Now, look yere, Parson," replied Mr. Small, as he got up to bustle about his work, "fellers like me, livin' out o' doors, has got a God what couldn't git into one of your moetin' bouses." "Mr. Small pardon me there is a glimmer or wnat seems to do meaning in your remark, but really, I fail to comprehend you," "That's hit" it will be observed as a peculiarity in Mr. Small's lan guage (a"peeuliarity common to un lettered western born Americans) that he sounds the emphatic form of the pronoun it with the aspirate h "that's hit! That's the high larnt way to say, 'I don't see it.' Now, we're even, Parson only you've got a million o' meetin'-house bells to do the 'plaudin' fer you, an' I haint got nary one. But these yere mountains, an' them bright stars, an' yonder moon pullin' bright over the summit, would 'plaud me ef I knowed how to talk for what made 'em. Hush listen!" said Mr. Small, suddenly pausing and point ing under the moonlight across the dim valley. "That's a coyote; I wonder which of us he's laughin' at." "Yash; kiotee. He heap talk. Mebbe so tabbit ketch um," said the Indian, rising and gathering up his blankets to retire. "Me heap shneep" (sleep). "Throw down another stick o' wood off the wagon, Gov, before yer go to beck" "Yash; me heap slineepy," replied the Indian, stretching and yawning with uplifted hands, from one of which his red blanket draped down for a moment over his shoulder, gor geous in the dancing camp-fire light. While the Indian climbed the wagon-side for the stick of wood, Mr. Sighal remarked: "Mr. Small, before we retiro, may I not ask the privilege of a few words of audible prayer to God for His preservation through the night hours?" "Yes, sir. Yere, Gov' come yere. I want that Injin to year one prayer, ef he never years another. I've prid money when I was a boy to hev Injins prayed fer, an' now I'm goin' to see some of it done. Come yere, Gov." The Indian came to the fire-side. ''Yere, Gov you sabe? This a-way; all same me" and Mr. Small dropped upon his own knees at the side of his roll of bedding. All-a-same Injin all-a-same lit tle stand up?" asked Gov, dropping his blanket, and placing hi3 hands on his knees. ' "Yes! Little stand up all same me!" "Yash!" assented Gov, on the opposite side of the roll, settling gradually upon his knees. continced. GENERAL NEWS.
