If the fool killer comes this way hell

my head on the log where I kill the
chick ens. I've not only made a blun
der, but a double blunder, ln tryin'
help two people at once. There was
Charlie Burnes mopln around, pinin'
because he had no one to help him run
his farm, no companion or nothin', and
there was Susan Nutter with a step
mother and unhappy at home. I
thought they'd do well to marry, so I
butted ln and arranged the matter be
tween 'em. I had no interest In it; I
only consented to be a go-between out
o' the kindness o' my heart. I'm an
old maid myself and wouldn't many
the best inuii on earth. I hain't got no
call to marry. I got my own house
and ground all paid for and $50 a
month from bond and mortgage be
sides. So I'm out o' the mutrimonial
question. But I'm not the only one
in the world to be considered. Mebbe
what'd kill me might cure others.
Thlnkin' that a-way, I told Charlie
about Susan and Susan about Charlie.
I praised Charlie to Susan, and this,
together with the hard time she wus
bavin' at home, made her iwwerful
anxious to git him. But somehow or
'nother she got the idea that if he
seen her he wouldn't have her, so she
told me I could tell him If he'd take
her entirely on my recommend it 'ud
be a go. Charlie he thought If she seen
what an ungainly feller he was she
wouldn't have him neither, so he con
sented. I didn't see no harm ln this, for
Susan was pretty as a peach, and Char
lie was as tine a-lookiu' feller as ever
follered a plow.
The mornin' o the weddln' I helped
Susan to git on a white muslin dress.
and when the other nxln's was all on
she looked lovely. The clock struck
the hour for the weddln', the house
was chuck full o' the neighbors I fur
nished the cake and things and up
drives Charlie in his two horse wagon,
with a suit o' new store clothes on,
lookln' fine and manly. 1 met him at
the door and tuk him ln to the settln'
room, where Susan was a-staudin'
waltin'. Susan blushed a little, and I
seen a mighty pleased look come over
Charlie's face. But there wasn't uu
time to git acquainted, for the parson
stepped in, and before they know'ed
lt they was married. Then, after the
snack set ln the dinln' room, Charlie
tuk bis wife out to the wagon and
drlv' off, followed by the usual shower
o' rice and old slippers. ,
Reckon you'll suy there wa'n't noth
in' foolish about this, and I don't know
as there would 'a' been If lt could 'a'
been done without a go-between. Y'see
there's a natural course slch things
have to run, Jist like measles. A wrong
treatment o' measles ls apt to drive
'em ln. In Charlie's and Susan's case
the courtin' and the glttln' used to
workln in matrimonial harness was
throwed on to 'em all to onct. If the
courtin had been done in Its proper
time the new harness wouldn't 'a' been
so hard to get used to.
It wasn't three days after the wed
dln' .when Susan she come to me all
afire, and she says, says she, "Miss
Shaw, what'd you go tie me up to slch
a man as that for?" "What's the trou
ble?" su.vs I. "He never speaks to me
at brenkfast no more'n If I'd come ln
for hired help." "I don't know nothin
'bout men." says I, "but I beam tell
mar mey nave an sons o ways auout i
'em that don't mean nothin'. If he don't
want to talk at breakfast, wait till
dinner. Mebbe he'll have somepln to
say by that time that's wo'th hearln'."
Well, she went away only half paci
fied, and pretty soon iu comes Charlie,
and he wants to know what I had agin
him to marry him to a woman who
talked all the time at breakfast just
the time o' day he felt chipper and
liked talkin' himself and wouldn't give
him a chance to get in a word. I tole
him I was a womnn myself and knowed
that there was times a woman had to
talk and times she had to cry and if be
wanted to git one different from this
he'd have to git her made to order,
For months they was a-runnin' to me
complalnin' because I got 'em into a
fix, and I got mighty tired of it.
One eveuin' I got out my mare and
driv over to Charlie's farm. Charlie
was a -sit tin' on the porch smokin his
cob pipe, and Susan was inside doin'

"Maybe," John replied, "but it's

got sick my business and my Income
would go right on."
"That's the difference between an
ability to think and manual labor," re
plied the safe maker. "I'm busy now
and must ask you to excuse me."
The gentleman had put a flea in
John's eur. He concluded to do a lit
tle thinking. He knew more about
safes and locks than Mr. Scalpton, ami
before he had done thinking he had
thought out a plan to compel that very
just man to listen to blm.
A few days later John called on a
firm that owned a Scalpton safe and
told them that he would prove to them
for a consideration that tbelr safe wag
worthless. lie would open it without
ven any tools. They engaged to pay
his price provided he succeeded. He
stipulated that be was to work alone
and without any watchers. They
agreed to this, locking him tn a room
with the safe, first having searched
him. John worked in tha dark, so lt
would not have been easy to learn his
process even if any one had been pres
ent, lie remained ln the room an hour,
and when he called and they entered
the safe was open.
They asked John who ha was, but
he wouldn't tell, and since he had
done nothing dishonest they couldn't
compel him to tell. He pocketed a
ten dollar bill and the next day went
to another firm using the same kind
of safe and made $10 more. This he
kept up, doing a lucrative business.
Very soon letters began to pour tn
to the Scalpton Safe and Lock com
pany that there was something the
matter with their locks. Each con
cern who wrote stated that their Scalp
ton safe clock had been picked by a
man who accomplished the feat with
out the use of tools, but as none of
them could tell how lt was done there
was nothing to be said. Then the or
