BIG JACK SMALL
The following story was published
several years since, nevertheless we
believe there are many of our readers
who never read it. 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.
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
"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
"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
"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
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
"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
"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,
"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

"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
"I was reflecting whether I had
done my whole duty, and answered
your question as fully as it should
"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?"
"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
"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
"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
"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,
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
"Yash!" assented Gov, on the
opposite side of the roll, settling
gradually upon his knees.
