TUESDAY EVENING, AUG. 24, 1880.
Mrs. McWHliams and the Lightning.
Mark Twain in Atlantic Monthly.
"Well, sir, continued Mr. McAVilliams,
for this was net the beginning of his talk,
the fear of lightning is one of the most dis
tressing infirmities a human being can be
afllicted with. It is mostly confined te
women ; but new and then you find it in a
little deg, and sometimes in a man. It is
a particularly distressing infirmity, for the
reason that it takes the sand out of a per
son te an extent which no ether fear Jean,
and it can't be ratsencil with, and neither
can it 1)C shamed out of a person. A
woman who could face the very devil
himself or a mouse looses her grip and
gees all te pieces in front of a Hash of
lightning Her fright is something pitiful
"Well, as I was telling yen, I aweke tip,
with that smothered and unlecatablc cry
of " Mortimer ! Mortimer ?" wailing in
my ears ; and as seen as I could scrajK!
my faculties together T reached ever in the
dark and then said
"Evangeline, is that you calling '.' "What
is the matter ? Where arc you ?
" Shut up in the beet-closet. Yen
ought te be ashamed te lie there and sleep
se, and such an awful stonngeing en."
" Why, hew eiin one be ashamed when
he is asleep ? It is unreasonable ; a man
can't be ashamed when he is asleep, Evan
geline." "Yeu never try, Mortimer, you knew
very well you never try."
1 caught the sound of mu tiled sobs.
That sound smote dead the sharp speech
that was en my lip, and I changed it
" I'm sorry, dear, I
I never mean't te r.?t
t ruly sorry.
" Heavens ! what
"De yen mean te say yen arc

"Come ent of it instantly. I should
think you would take some little care of
your life, for my sake and the children's,
if you will net for your own."
" But my love"
"Don't talk te me, Mortimer. Yeu
knew there is no place se dangerous as a
bed, in such a thunder-storm as this, all
the books say that ; yet there you would
lie, and deliberately threw away your life,
for goodness knows what, unless for
the sake of arguing and arguing, and"
"But, conteund it, Evangeline, I'm net
in the bed, noir. I'm"
Sentence interrupted by a sudden glare
of lightning", followed by a terrified little
scream from Mrs. McWilliams and a tre
mendous blast of thunder.
"There ! Yeu sec the result. Oh,
Met timer, hew etui you be se profligate as
te swear at such a time as this?"
" I didn't swear. And that intsii't a re
sult of it, any way. Tt would have come,
just the same, if I hadn't said a word ; and
you knew very wel', Evangeline, at least
you ought te knew, that when the atmos
phere is charged with electricity."
" Oli, yes, new larguc it, aari argue it,
and argue it! I don't see hew you can act
se when you Icuew there is net a lightning lightning
red en the place, and your peer wife and
children are absolutely at the mercy of
Providence. What arc you doing? light
ing a match at such a time as this! Arc
you stark mad?"
" Hang it, woman, where' s the harm?
The place is as datk as the inside of an
"Put it out! put it out instantly ! Arc
you determined te sacrifice us all ! Yeu
knew there is nothing attracts lightning
like a light. '. crash! loom boleom-boom-boom
! Oh, just hear it ! New you
sec what you've done!"
"Ne, 1 don't see what I've done. A
match may attract lightning, for all I
Knew, out it den t came lightning I'll go
odds en that. And it didn't attract it
worth a cent this time; for if that shot
was leveled at my match it was blessed
peer marksmanship about an average of
none out of a possible million, I should
say. Why, at Dollymount, such marks
manship as that " '
"Fer .shame, Mortimer! Here wc arc
standing right in the very presence of
death, and yet in se solemn a moment you
are capable of using such language as
that! If yen have no desire te Morti

"Oh, we arc lest, beyond all help ! Hew
could you neglect, such a time at such a
time as this?"
"But it icaxn't 'such a thing as this.'
There wasn't a cloud in the sky. I low
could knew there was going te be all
this rumpus and pew-wow about a little
slip like that? And I don't think it's
just fair for you te make se much out
of it, any way, seeing it happens se sel
dom ; I haven't missed before since I
brought en that earthquake, four years
" Meutimkk ! Hew you talk ! Have you
forgotten the yellow fever?"
"My dear, you are always throwing
up the yellow fever te me, and I think
it is perfectly unreasonable. Yeu can't
even send a tclegiaphic message as far
as Memphis without relays, se hew is
a little devotional slip of mine going
te carry se far? I'll stand the earth
quake, bceausc it was in the neighborhood ;
hut I'll be hanged if I'm going te be re
sponsible for every blamed "
Fzt! iioem farvwM-boem ! boom !
"Oh, dear, dear, dear! I knew it struck
something, Mortimer. We never shall see
the light of another day ; and if it will de
you any geed te remember, when we are
gene, that your dreadful language Morti

" Your voice sounds as if Mortimer,
are you actually standing in front of the

"That is the very crime I am commit- I
" Get away from it, this moment. Yeu
de seem determined te bring destruction
en us all. Don't you knew that there is
no better conductor for lightning than an
open chimney? New where have you get
"I'm here by the window."
" Oh, for pity's sake, have yen lest
your mind? Clear out from there, this
moment. The very children in arms
knew it is fatal te stand near a window
in a thunder-storm. Dear, dear, I knew
I shall never sce the light of another day.
"What is that rustling?"
" It's mc."
"What are yen doing?"
"Trying te find the upper end of my
"Quick! threw these things away!
I de believe yen would deliberately put en
these clothes at a time as this; yet you
knew perfectly ..well that all aw
agree that woolen stuns attract lightning.
Ob, dear, dear, it isn't sufficient that one's
life must be in peril from natural causes,
hut you must de everything you can possi
bly think of te augment the danger. Oh,
don't sing! What can you be thinking
"New where's the harm in it?"
"Mortimer, if I have told you once,
I have told you a hundred times, that
singing causes vibrations in the atmos
phere which interrupt the flew of tluclcc
tric fluid, and What en earth arc von
opening that deer for?"
"Goodness gracious, woman, is there
any haam in that?
"Harm? There's death in it. Anvbedv
that has given this subject any attention
knows that te create a draught is te invite
the lightning. Yeu haven't half shut it;
tight, and de hurry, or we arc all de
stroyed. Oh, it is an awful thing te be
shut np with a lunatic at such a time as
this. Mortimer, what are yen doing?"
'Nothing. Just turning en the water.
This room is smothering het close. I want
te bathe my face and hands."
"leuhave certainly parted with the
remnant of your mind ! Where lightning
strikes any ether substance once, it strikes
water fifty times. De turn it off. Oh,
dear, I am sura that nothing in this
world can save us. It docs seem te me
that Mortimer, what was that?"
"It was a da it was a picture.
ivnecKctt it clown."
"Then you are clese te the wall! I
never heard of such imprudence ! Don't
you knew that there's no better conductor
ler lightning than a wall? Come away,
from there ! And yen came as near as'
anything te swearing tee. Oh, hew can yen
be se desperately wicked, and your family
in such peril ? Mortimer, did you order a
feather bed, as I asked you te de ?"
"Ne. Forget it."
" Forget it ! It may cost you your life.
If you had a feather bed, new, and could
spread it in the middle of the room and
lie en it, you would be perfectly safe.
Come in here, come uuiek. before von
have a chance te commit any mera frantic
I tried, but the little closet would net
held us both with the deer shut, unless
we could be content te smother. I
gasped a while, then forced my way out.
My wife called out
"Mortimer, something must be done for
your preservation. Give me that German
book that is en the end of the mantel-niece
and a candle ; but don't light it ; give mc
a match ; I will light it in here. That book
has some directions in it."
I get the book at cost of a vase and
some ether brittle things ; and the madam
shut herself up with het- candle. I had a
moment's peace; then she called out
" Mortimer, what was that ?"
" Nothing but the cat."
"The cat.! Oh, destruction ! Catch her,
and shut her up in the wash-stand. De
be quick, love ; cats arc full of electricity.
I just knew my hair will turn white with
this night's awful perils."
I heard the mu filed sebbings again.
But for that, I should net have moved
hand or feet iu such a wild enterprise iu
However, I went at my task ever
chairs and against all sorts of obstructions,
all of them haul ones, tee, and most of
them with sharp edges and at last I get
kitty cooped up in the commode, at an ex
pense of ever four hundred dollars in
broken furniture and shins. Then these
in n filed words came from the eleset :
"It says the safest thing is te stand en
a chair iu the middle of the room, Morti
mer ; and the legs of the chair must be in
sulated with non-conductors. That is, you
must set the legs of the chair in glass
tumblers. Fzt! boom ban a ! siHitah !
Oh, hear that? De hurry, Mortimore, be
fore you arc struck."
I managed te find and secure the tum
blers. I get the last four broke all the
rest. I insulated the chair legs and called
for further instructions.
"Mortimer, it says, 'Wahrcnd eiues
Gcwittcrs ciitferne man Metal le, wie ..

Slcllcn auf, we viclc Metal le bei ciuatidcr

timer? Dees it mean that you must keep
metals about you, or keep them away from
" AVcll, I hardly knew. It appears te
be a little mixed. AH German advice is
mere or less mixed. However, I think
that that sentence is mostly in the dative
case, with a little genitive and accusative
sifted in, here and there, for luck ; he I
reckon it means that you must keep some
metals about you."
" Yes, that must lie it. It stands te
reason that it is. They arc in the nature
of lightning reds, you knew. Put en your
fireman's helmet, Mortimer ; that is most
I get it and put it en, a very heavy and
clumsy and uncomfortable thing en a het

dress seemed te be mere clothing than I
"Mortimer, I think your middle ought
te be protected. Won't you buckle en
your militia sabre, please?"
"New, Mortimer, you ought te have
some way te protect your feet. De please
put en your spurs."
I did it, in silence. and kept my tem
per as well as I could.
" Mortimer, it says, ' Das Gewittcr lau
tcn ist schr gcfahrlicli, wcil die Gleckc
sclbst, sewic tier riurch das Lauteu vcran
Iasste Luftzng und die Hehe rics Th urines

docs that mean that it is dangerous net te
ring the church bells during a thunder
storm?" "Yes, it seems te mean that, if that is
the past participle of the nominative case
singular, anri I reckon it is. Yes, I think it
means that en account of the height of the
church tower and the absence of Lvflztig it
would be very dangerous schr gefahrlich)
net te rign the bells in time of a storm ;
and moreover, don't you sec, the very
"Never mind that, Mortimer; don't
waste the precious time in talk. Get the
larger dinner bell ; it is right there iu the
hall. Quick, Mortimer, dear ; wc are al
most safe. Oh, dear, I de believe wc aie
going te be saViid, at last !"
Our little summer establishment stands
en top of a high range of hills, overlooking
a valley. Several farm-house are in our
neighborhood the nearest some three or
four hundred yards away.
When I, mounted en the chair, had been
clanging that dreadful bell a matter of
seven or eight minutes, our shutters were
suddenly tern open from without, and a
brilliant bull's-cye lantern was thrust in at
the window, followed by a hearse in
"What in the nation is the matter
The window was full of men's heads,
and the heads were full of eyes that stared
wildly at my night-dress and my warlike
I dropped the bell, skipped down from
the chair in confnsien, and said,
"There is nothing the matter, friends,
only a little discomfort en account of the
thumicr-sterm. I was trying .te keep off
"Thunder-storm? Lightning? Why,
Mr. McWHliams, have you lest your mind?
It is a beautiful starlight night ; there has
eeen no storm.
I looked out, and I was se astonished I
could hardly speak for a while. Then I
"I de net understand this. We dis
tinctly saw the glow of the flashes through
the curtains and shutters, and heard the
One after another these people lav down

"Pity you didn't think te open your
blinds and leek ever te the top of the
high hill yonder. What yen heard was
cannon ; what you saw was the flash.
Yeu sec, the telegraph brought some news
just at midnight ; Garfield's nominated,
and that's what the matter!"
Yes, Mr. Twain, as I was saying, in'
the beginning (said Mr. McWilliams),

lightning arc se excellent aud se innumer

in the world te mc, is hew anybody ever

Necaying, he gathered up his satchel
and umbrella and departed ; for the train
had reached his town.
