THE 8CRAKTON TRIBUNE TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1894.
(These short aerial stories are copyrighted by Bacheller, Johnson & Bach
eller.and are printed InTlieTrlbune by special arrangement, simultaneous with
their appearance in the leading dally Journals of the large cities).
"What was called a union revival was
In progress at the principal meeting
house in Hroomfleld, an old and gul
lied village In the southwestern part of
Missouri, and the exhorters, vigorous
advocates of a change of heart and pur
puse, were warm in their work when
the slight flutter of a counter excite
ment arose amid the congregation.
Old Bill Almes, strong among the ex
horters, and who long had enjoyed the
name of "Wheel Horse," looked toward
he door and saw a strange young
woman slowly and with long strides
walking down the aisle. She was ex
ceedingly tall and with a complexion
that seemed to darken as she drew
near, 1nit she was not ungraceful and
neither was her face wanting In at
ractlveness. Her tailor-made gown
-as a mark of ultra fashion In this out-if-the-way
place; and her air, her
wing of motion bespoke the forced In
Jt'pemlenee of city life. She paid not
the slightest heed. to the gazes bent
upon her, but with easy freedom took
a seat and modestly turned her eyes to
ward the altar wher tlm mourners In
split and shivered accents were pit
iably begging that the old Adam born
within them might be cast out into
utter darkness. And now the whisper
went round: '"Who is she and where
did she come from and what is she do
ing here?" Some of the children
climbed upon the benches to stare at
her, and old 13111 Almes, always a bold
man, looked straight at her and shout
ed his exhortation as though he would
have her believe that she had arrived
just in time to escape the awful fury
to come. But the woman sat there not
the least disturbed; and when the ser
vices were brought to a close she got up
without looking about her and walked
straightway to the tavern, a short dis
tance down the street. It appeared
that she had already engaged a room,
"Boy, What Have You Got There?
or she walked upstairs without halt
'ng, and a few moments later a boy
came down with a note In his hand.
Bill Almes was standing near the door
of the hallawy, and as the boy came
down the old man called to him and
told him to stop a moment.
"Boy, what have you got there,?" the
old fellow asked.
"A note, or something of the sort,"
"What are you going to do with It?"
"She told me to take It to the editor
of the Sentinel."
"Well, let me see It." The boy hesi
tated. "Let me see It, I tell you. Ain't
1 the mayor of this town, you young
rascal, and ain't it my business to know
It If any underhand business goes on
here? Dive me that thing."
Tlie Idlers who stood about applaud
ed the mayor and the boy handed him
the note. "Here, Alf," he said, speak
ing. to the young fellow, "read this here
thing. Left my buckskin at homo and
ain't got nothing to rub my glasses
with. Bead it." There was a titter
among the Idlers. "What are you fel
lers gigglin at? Think I can't read?
Hah? Is that what you think? Why,
I gad Lord forgive me for the expres
sion I read the Declaration of Inde
pendence 'at a muster before either of
you was born. What does that thing
Alf spelled and spluttered for a mo
ment or two and then read the follow
ing: "My Pear Sir: Meet me at once In the
parlor at. the hotel on Important busi
ness. Respectfully, POLLY LOPP."
The old man took the note, looked at
It, turned It over, looked at It again,
folded It and returned It to the boy,
"I don't understand It, but I reckon It's
ell right," ho said. "Take It to him,
and say, you, watch him when he reads
It, and come back here and tell me how
. It did not appear that the boy nad
Wore thni reached the shanty where
the paper was printed when they saw
the editor coming "hastily toward the
hotel. To Mm the prospect of on Im
portant business conference no doubt
produced a strange sensation. Year
after year he had "scrapped" for a liv
ing In that village, printing funeral
tickets, horse bills, end through his
eheet urging 'his party to organize and
overthrow the political enemy of his
country. The Idlers about the door of
the 'hall made way for him as he ap
proached, but the mayor, showing a
disposition to block his path, asked him
to wait a moment. The editor gave
him a look of strong reproof.' "I have
no time for gossip," he said. "I have
The crowd stood about the dioor,
waiting for him to come down, and
when he did those who -were best ac
quainted wlBh his sad and careworn
countenance agreed that he looked
oars younger. Now, what could It all
mean? The mystery was deepened.
"Jest hold on a minute," old Almes
walled after him. The editor faced
about and said: "Well, what do you
"Wo want to know something that
we've got a right to know," Almes re
plied. "There's something goln' on
here and we want to know what It Is.
You never buav that woman before, and
why should you have Important busl
rwM with her? We don't know but she's
some female anarchist como here to
Wow up these here American insUtu
The editor laughed, and for the first
time since his defeat as a candidate for
the legislature. "She's nothing of the
port," he said. "To tell you the truth
phe has just leased my paper for a year
with the privilege of buying, and she
assures me that It shall maintain Its
present high standard of morality and
integrity. She tukes charge tomorrow
and you have nothing to fear from
"But where Is she from?" Almes
asked. "We don't want women comln'
In here among our folks without we
know where they are from."
"She came from Chicago."
"What, and you are sure she ain't an
anarchist? Look here, colonel, you
ought to have gone a little slow In this
matter. She might hoist the red flag
at the head of your paper and then
where would the country be?"
"No danger of that," the editor
laughed, and off he walked, leaving
old Almes to stand there and wonder
Whether or not he should call on the
woman and get a few points from her.
He decided that he would, and upstairs
he went. He looked In at the parlor
door and saw the young woman sitting
on the sofa with a book In her hand.
"Ahem, excuse me; but may I come
In a moment?"
"Yes," the woman answered, putting
aside the book. The old man entered,
tiok a chair, moved it about and finally
settlfd down near her.
"Putty hot," he ventured to remark.
"Hotter than It was jistidy, I be
lieve," he observed.
"Yes or day beforeyesterday, either,"
"I gad, I reckon you are right."
She slowly turned her head and look
ing straight at him said:
"You were exhorting In the church
Just a short while ago I bolleve?"
"You are right. I 'always take an
active part in our revivals. But we
hain't done much this time and the
meetin' closed today."
"I thought you were the man, and I
am therefore a little surprised to hear
you say 'I gad' after hearing you so
fervently urge people) to turn from
Old Almes puffed and fanned himself
with his straw hat. The woman took
up her book and looked at It. "Miss, I
knock under. You are right. But I
don't mean no harm by usln' such
words, and I want to say they are the
strongest I ever use. Bleeged to you
for callln my attention to 'em. But I
have come to see you to ask you a few
questions, and I hope you won't think
them out of place, or anything of that
sort, for you see country people pride
themselves on beln' more respectable
than most any other folks are, and the
tiuth Is they have to be mighty par
ticular and all that sort of thing, which
I hope you will understand without any
trouble, and the questions I want to ask
you are simply these here: How did
you happen to come here and"
"How did you happen to come here?"
the woman broke in, raising her eyes
from the book and mildly fixing them
upon the old man. And she appeared
to be making a study of him, his quaint
eyes, his purple cheeks, bushy eye
brows, fat nose; and she noticed that
the bosom of his cotton shirt was un
buttoned at the top, revealing the gray
ish hairs on his chest. "But before
you answer," she added, still looking
at him, taking. It seemed, an enjoy
able measurement of his discomfiture.
"let me ask you If you would mind but
toning your shirt."
"I gad, miss," the old man puffed,
you are something of a Tartar, I
reckon. I've lived here all my life and
have been mayor here for ten years and
have wore my shirt this way every
spell of hot weather, and you are the
first one to tell me to button It; but
dinged excuse the expression, for It's
the strongest I use I say dinged if I
don't do It. Now, miss, the shirt's but
toned, so go ahead with your rat kill
In', as the feller said."
"I have no rat killing to go on with.
I merely asked you how you happened
to come here."
"Yes, but blast my hide excuse me
for that expression, If you please, for it
is about the strongest I use you've got
no right to ask me that question."
"Wll, then, you have no right to ask
me how I happened to come here."
"Miss, I tell you that I'm the mayor
of this here town, but we'll lot that
''Ahem! Excuse Me; May I Como In?"
pass. Would you mind tellln' me your
"My father's name was Lopp and In
remembrance of a great-aunt X was
"Ah' hah, I reckon It was all right to
rlcollect the old lady and all that sort
of thing, but from what I can gather
from the papers Lopp is a sort of an
archlst name, ain't It?" .
"I have never known an anarchist of
that . name," the young woman an
"They may be, miss, but I don't like
the name any too well, but we'll let
that pass, as the feller said when he
seed the wild cat." He was silent long
enough to unbutton the top button of
his Bhlrt and then he went on: "We
understand that you hnv leased the
paper here, and we'd llktf toknow why,
for when a paper In lenseM tlnre. Is gen
ernlly Borne sort of axf to be ground
so- I would Just like toyisk yc what
sort of ax you have brough t with you?"'
The woman threw down the -book

her hands back of hei head, leave"
back, still laughing at him.
"Miss, you are as mch tickled a si "

you think there's a bug on you? I have
generally commanded a good deal of
respect among women folks and you
needn't laugh at me any more than you
can help, even If there's a bug on you,
but what I want to get at and I'm
going to get at It mighty sudden is this
here: Before we can 'allow you to as
sociate with us we must know some-
thin' about you, and it Is as little as
you can do to tell us what we want to
"You have asked me for my confi
dence," she said, looking at him with
demure mockery, "the precious confi
dence of an unprotected woman, and
oh, how willingly would I give it you
but for the fact that I have not known
you long enough. But I confess that
you have Invited my confidence by
seeking to unbosom yourself." She
looked at the old man's shirt and he
puffed and buttoned It.
"Miss, I'll be slathered now that is
really the strongest expression I use
If you don't sorter git away with me.
But won't you tell me somethln' about

could have them cut off at any time."
