which, I turned away, and crossed the
road to the open door of the smithy, very
eonieW of the three pairs of eyes that
patched me as I went.
Upon .the threshold of the forge I
pauted to look about me, and there, sure
enough, was the smith. Indeed a fine,
sly fellow he was. with great shoulders,
and a mighty chest, and arms whoso
bulging muscles showed to advantage In
the red glow of the fire.' In his left hand

stepped Into the smithy and accosted
'" 1&m you Black George?"! Inquired, At
the sound of my voice, he let go tho
handle of the bellows, and turned; as I
watched, I saw his brows draw suddenly
totether, while the golden hairs of his
ward teemed to curl upward.

"You ba a strange sort o' chapl" said
ho, shaking his head.
"So they tell mc."
"And what does the likes o' you want
wl' the likes o" me?"
"Know anyihln' abput smtthln'?"
"Not a thlS."
"Then why do 'ce come 'ere?"
"Mora fool yout" said the smith,
"Because smlthln' Is 'ard work, and
dirty work, and hot work, and work as
Is badly paid nowadays."
"Then why are you a smith?"
"My feyth.er was a smith afore me."
"And is that your only reason?"
"My only reason."
"Then you ara the greater fool."
"You think so, do ye?"
"SupposlnV said Black George, strok
ing his golden beard reflectively, "sup
posln' I was to get up and break your
neck for that."
"Then you would, at least, save ma
from the folly of becoming a smith."
"I don't," said Black George, shaking
hla head, "no, I do not like you,"
"I am sorry for that."
"Because," ho went on, "you've got
the gift a' the gab. and a gabbing man
Is worse than a gabbing woman."
"You can gab your share, If it comes
to that." said I.
"You can." l
"My chap." ho growled, holding up a
warning hand, "go easy now, go easy;
don't get me took again."
"Not If I can help it" I returned.
"I be a quiet soul till I gets took a
very quiet soul lambs bean't quieter, but
I won't answer for that neck o yourn
if I get took so look out!"
"I understand you have an Important
piece of work on hand," said I, changing
"Th owd church screen, yes."
"And are in need of a helper?"
"Ah! to be sure but you aren't got
the look o' a workln' cove. I never see
a workln' cova wl" "ands the like o'
yourn, so white as a woman's they be."
"I have worked herd enough In my
time, nevertheless," said I.
"What might you 'ave done, now?"
"I have translated Petronlus Arbiter,
also Qulntillan. with a literal rendering
into the English of the Memolres of tho
Sleur de Brantome."
"Oh." exclaimed the smith, "that
sounds a lot! anything more?"
"Yes," I answered; "I won the high
Jump, and throwing the hammer."
"Throwln' the 'ammer!" repeated Black
George musingly: "was It anything llko
that theer?" And he pointed to a sled go
"Something." I answered.
"And .you want work?"
"Tell 'ee what, my fellow. If you can
throw that theer 'ammer further nor me,
then I'll say. 'Done," and you can name
your own wages, but if I beat you, and
I'm fair sure I can, then you must stand
up to me for 10 minutes, apd I'll give
'ee a good trouncln' to ease my mind
what d'ye say?"
After a momentary hesitation I nodded
"Done!" said I.
"More fool you!" grinned the smith,
and, catching up his sledge-hammer, he
strode' out Into the road.
Before "The Bull" a small crowd had
gathered, all newly come from field or
farmyard, for most of them carried rake
or pitchfork, having doubtless been drawn
thither by the hellish outcry of Black
George and myself. Now I noticed that
while they listened to the Ancient, who
was holding forth, snuff-box In hand, yet
every eye was turned towards the smithy,
and In every eye was expectation. At our
appearance, however, I thought .they
seemed, one and all, vastly surprised and
tnken aback, for heads were shaken, and
glances wandered from the smith and
myself to the Ancient, and back again.
"Well, I'll bo danged!" exclaimed Job.
"I knowed It! I knowed ltl" cIed the
Ancient, rubbing his hands and chuckling.
"Knowed what. Gaffer?" Inquired Black
George, as 'we came up.
"Why, I knowed as this young chap
would come out a-walkln" 'pon his own
two legs, and not like Job, a-rollln' and
a-wallerln' In the dust o' th road Ilka a
"Why, y'see. Gaffer." began the smith,
almost apologetically It seemed to me.
"It do come sort o' nat'ral to heave the
likes o' Job about a bit Job's made for
it. y might say, but this chap's differ
ent." "So 'e be. Jargo so 'e be!" nodded tho
"Though, mark me. Gaffer. I aren't
nohow in love wl this chap neither 'o
gabs too much to s.ult oe, by a long
"'E do that!" chimed in Job, edging
nearer: "what I sen Is, If e do get 'Is
back broke, 'e aren't got nobody to blame
but Msself so cocksure as e be."
"Job," said the Ancient, "hold thee
"I sez 'e's a cocksure cove." repeated
Job doggedly "an a cocksure cove 'e
be: what do 'ee think, Jarge?"
"Job," returnod the smith. "I don't
chuck a man Into t' road and talk wl' 'tm
both In the same day."
In this conversation I bore no part,
busying myself in drawing out a wide
circle In the dust, a proceeding watched
by the others with much Interest, and
not a few wondering comments.
"What be soln to do wl 'ammer,
Jarge?" inquired the Ancient. '
"Why." explained th smith, "this chap
thinks 'e can throw It further nor me."
At this there was a general laugh. "If
so be e' can." pursued Black George,
"then 'e cornea to work for me at 'Is
own price, but if I beat 'im. then 'e
must stand up to me wl' 'la nets for ten
"Ten minutes!" cried a voice; "'e won't
last five-see If 'e do,"
"Keel sorry for un," said a second, " 'e
do be 10 pale aa a sheet a'ready,"
"So would you ba It you was In 'la
shoes!" chimed In a third; whereat there
was a general laugh.
Indeed, as I looked round the ring of
grinning, unresponsive faces. It was plain
to see that all sympathy waa against the
stranger, as la the way of bird, beast, fish,
but especially man, the 'world over and
X experienced a sudden sense of loneliness
which waa. I think, only natural. Yet.
aa I put my hand to loose the strap of
my knapsack, I encountered another al
ready there, and. turning, beheld Simon
the Innkeeper. ,...... ,.,

It to him but that the Ancient hobbled
up. and, takinr it from me, folded it os.

should each have three throws whoever
lioul make tae iwp f ""J"" ""
Walt," said I, "the advantage usually
Ilea with the Inst thrower. It would be
fairer to you were we to toss for It,"
"No," answered Black George, motion
ing the onlookers to stand back, "I've got
th" 'ammer. nnd I'll throw first.'
How, as probably every one knows, It
Is one thing lo swing a sledge-hammer In
tho ordinary way but quite another to
throw It any distance, for there Is re
quired, besides the bodily strength, a cer
tain amount of knowledse. without which
a man Is necessarily handicapped. Thus,
aespue my opponents great strength of
arm, I waa fairly sanguine of the re
sult. Black George took a fresh grip upon
the hammer shaft, twirled It tightly
above his head, swung It once, twice,
thrice and let It go.
With a shout, Job and two or three
others ran down the road to mark where
It had fallen, and presently returned,
pacing out the distance.
"Flfty-nlnet" they announced.
"Can 'ee beat that?" Inquired Black
"I think I can," I answered, as taking
up the hammer, I, In turn, stepped Into
the ring. Gripping the shaft flrmly.I
whirled It aloft, and began to swing It
swifter and swifter, gaining greater Im
petus every moment, till, like a Hash, It
flew from my grasp, ranting. I watched
It rise, rise, rise, and then plunge down
to earth In a smother of dust.
"'H 've beat It!" cried the Ancient,
flourlsmng his stick excitedly. "Lord
love me, o 've beat It!"
"Ay,"o 'vo beat It, suro-ly," said a msi.
who carried a rake that was forover get
ting In everybody's way.
"An" by a goodlsh bit tul" shouted an
other. "Ah! but Jargo aren't got 'Is arm In
yet." retorted a third; "Jargo can do bet
ter nor that by a long sight!" But now
all voices were hushed as Job paced up.
"Elghty-twol" he announced. Black
Gcorgo looked hard at me, but. without
speaking, stepped sulkily Into the ring,
moistened his palms, looked at me again.
nnd setting the hammer, began to whirl
It as he had seen me. Round and round
It went, faster and faster, till, with a
sudden lurch, he hurled It up and away.
Indeed It was a mighty throw! Stralcht
and strong It flew, describing a wide pa
rabola ere It thudded Into tho road.
The excitement now waxed high, and
many started off to measure the dtstnnce
for themselves, shouting ono to another
ns they went. As for tho smith, ho stood
beside me whistling, and I saw that the
twinkle was back In his eyes again.
"One hunncr and twenty!" cried half-a-dozen
"And a half," corrected Job. thrusting
the hammer Into my hand nnd grinning.
"Can 'ee beat that?" Inquired Black
"Ay, can 'ee beat that?" echoed the
"It was a marvelous throw'" said I,
shaking my head. And Indeed, In my
heart I knew I could never hope to enual.
much less bent, such a mighty cast. I
therefore decided on strategy, and, with
this In mind, proceeded In a leisurely
'fashion once more to mark out the circle,
which was obliterated In places, to flatten
the surface underfoot, to roll up my
sleeves and tighten my belt; In fine. I ob
served all such precautions as a man
might be expected to take before some
At length, having dono everything I
could think of to Impress this Idea upon
the onlookers, I took up the hammer.
"Means to do It this tlmo!" cried the
man with the rake, knocking off Job's hat
In his excitement, as, with a tremendous
swing, I made my second throw. There
was a moment's breathless silence as the
hammer hurtled through the air, then, like
an echo to Its fall, came a shout of laugh

short or the giant smith's last. A moment
later Job camo pnclng up and announced:
"Eighty-seven!" Hereupon arose a very
Danei or voices:
"You've got un beat a'ready, Jarge!"
"Well, I knowed It from tho start!"
"Let un alone," cried Simon, '-'e've got
anotrer chance yet
"Much good It'll do 'im!"
"Ah! might as well give In now. and
take Ms thrashln' and ha' done wl' It."
That my ruse had succeeded with the
crowd was evident; they to a man be
lieved I had done my best, and already
regarded me as hopelessly beaten. My
chance of winning depended upon whether
the smith, deluded Into a like belief,
should content himself with. Just beating
my last throw, ror, shouldflffe again exert
his mighty strength to the uttermost I
felt that my case was Indeed hopeless.
It was with a beating heart, therefore.
that I watched him take his place for tho
last throw. His face wore a confident
smile, but nevertheless he took up the
hammer with such a businesslike air that
ray heart sank, and, feeling a touch upon
my arm, I waa glad to turn away.
"I be goto" to fetch- a sponge and
water," said Simon. ,
"A sponge and water!"
"Ah! Likewise some vinegar theer's
nothtn' like vinegar and remember the
chin, a little to one side preferred."'
"So then you think I shall be beaten?"
"Why. I don't say that, but lt'n best to
do prepared, nren't It now?"
And, with a friendly nod, the Innkeeper1
turned away, in that same minute there
arose; another shout from the crowd as
they greeted Black George's last throw,
and Job, striding up, announced i
Then, while the air tlll echoed with
plaudits, I stepped Into the ring. and.
catching up the hammer, swung It high
above my head, and, at the ful) length of
my arms, began to wheel it The iron
spun' faster and faster till, setting my
teeth, with tne wnoie force of every fibre,
every nerve and muscle of by body, I
let it fly.
The blood waa throbbing at my temples
and my breath coming fast aa I watched
its curving flight And now all voices
were hushed so that the ring of the iron
could be plainly heard as it struck the
hard road, and all eyes watched Job aa
he began pacing towards us. Aa he drew
nearer I could hear him counting to him
"Ninety-one, ninety-two, ninety-three.

ninety-seven, ninety-eight ninety-nine.

to force me into my coat, wrong side first,
and Simon waa shaking my hand.

turning I found Blanc George confronting

"And how did I trick you?
"I could ha' chucked farther" nor that."
Then wny qian'i your
"Because I thought you was beat

"And I tell you the match waa a fair

"Put up your hands!" said the smith,
advancing In a threatening manner.
"No," said I, "a bargain ! a bargain."
and turning my hack upon him, I fell to
waicnmr in man wun, ma rake, who,
not content w(th Jobs word, was busily
pacing out the distance for himself.
