THE SCBANTON TBIBTJNE SATUBDAT JSIORNING, MAT 23, 189C.
Coiytltkt. IMS, by Bsrheller,
It you are a reader of the newspapers
you 8a w the account they printed the
other day in regard to the murder of a
young woman by Took Parmalee, In
the neighborhood of "Hatcher's Ford."
You couldn't have missed it. The night
editors dished it up as a great sensa
tion, spreading it ut under startling
The account- Bald that two young
ladles sisters were walking along
the road, when they saw Took Parma
lee come out of the bushes with a pistol
in his hand. lie had been courting one
of them for two or three years, and
when she now saw him coming she
turned and fled in the opposite direc
tion, while the other sister, not know
Ing what to think or how to act, stood
still. In this way she probably saved
her own ife, for Toog passed her by
IN' THIS WAY SHE PROBABLY
SAVED HER OWN LIFE.
In pursuit of the flying girl, who was
overtaken ana pnoi in com oioou. ik.
harrowing details were sread out with
great particularity In the newspapers,
and the verdict, made up by those who
furnished the details, was that Parma
lee was stark crazy.
The only fact given In the account
was that Parmalee hud killed his
sweetheart, and this could have been
made cear in much less space than a
column of reading matter occupies, for
Hatcher's Ford Is fifty miles from the
settlement where the affair occurred.
That settlement Is known ns Hatch's
Clearing, because, as Mrs. Piuett says,
vinhrulv hv tho nnine of Hatch ever
lived there, or any clearing on that side '
of Tray mountain, and as for the other j
side well, that was in anoiner pun
of the county altogether.
So much for the first mistake, and
now for the second. Was Toog Par
malee crazy? There's no need for you
to take the word of an outsider on that
subject, but before you make up your
mind, go and ask Mrs. Pruett. It Is a
tiresome Journey, to be sure, but it Is
always worth the trouble to find out
the truth. You may go to Clnrksville
from Atlanta, hut at Clarksville you'll
have to hire a buggy, and, although the
road Is a lone one. It Is very interesting.
It would be well to take a companion I
with you, if your horse Is skittish, for
it will be necessary to open a great
many big gates as you go along. All
the farms are under fence in this par
ticular region, and the gates are a ne
cessity. As you get nearer to Hatch's
Clearing you will see barricades built
across the mouths of all the dark and
shadowy ravines. This also Is a necessity,-
for in these ravines grows the
moBB or fungus which, if eaten by the
milch cows, causes what Mrs. Pruett
calls "the milk sick" not among the
cows, but among those who drink the
milk or eat the butter made from the
milk. Mrs. Pruett lost two children In
this way, and she would have lost her
old man, too. If Mrs. Ilohannan hadn't
happened along in time to give him a
steaming with blankets on which
scalding water had been poured. The
blankets were bo hot that Mr. Hruett's
skin peeled off In places. He made
such protest as his feebleness would
permit him to make, but Mrs. I'ruett
was linn In her purpose. He got well,
and, though the scalded patches on bin
neck give htm a piebald uppearance to
this duy, he has never had another at
tack of sickness of any kind.
But this is- neither here nor there.
Though the road to Hatch's Clearing is
a long and winding one, you can't mis
your way. -You turn Into it suddenly
and unexpectedly twelve miles from
Clarksville,. and after that there Is no
need of making inquiries, for there
re no cross-roads and no "forks" to
embarrass you. There's only one trou
ble about it. You ascend the mountain
by such a gentle grade that when you
reach the top you refuse to believe you
are on the summit at all. This lack of
belief Is helped mightily by the fact that
the mountain Itself Is such a big affair.
It slopes from each end to the middle,
bo tha't the road on the very' summit
seems to be winding through a valley.
If you are-a very close observer you will
see that the-oaks and hickories have a
stunted appearance. .They .seem to be
scrubs; but even then you may be de
ceived by the mountain oaks. You may
mistake them for chestnut trees, and
wonder why it Is that chestnuts flour
ish here while the oaks are as scraggy
Presently you will hear a cow bell
Jingling somewhere In the dlstanse, and
ten to one you will meet a ten-year-old
boy Jn the road, his breeches hanging by
one suspender and an old wool hat Hop
ping on the back of his head. Naturally
you will ask him how far It 1b to Hatch's
Clearing. He will stare at you, scratch
his bare ankle with his bare toe, turn
lowly around on his heels as if to be
ure of his bearlngs.and then reply with
a drawl that cannot be reproduced:
"Why, I reckon you're right spang In
it now, mister."

Irritated, so much so. Indeed, that you
will Inquire with some scorn if this is
what the people around here call a
clearing. The boy will stare at you
again with a half smile playing around
his pale lips, and say. as he runs his
thumb under the lone suspender to give
it a firmer seat on his shoulder:
"They uv been a callln' it that ever
sence granny came here from I dunno
Then you will ask how far It Is to
Mrs. Pruett's. and the boy will Bay with
"Hit ain't no ways, skeersely. ' I'll
show you wher. She's my granny."
Whereupon he will turn and walk
by the buggy, examining horse, harness
and vehicle with critical eyes. To keep
up the conservation you will ask him if
he's ever been to Atlanta, and he will
say with an unconcerned air:
"I never has. but my Buddy Bill, he
ever has. They tuck him thar. Mister,
that hoss Is plum tired out."
If you are wise you will fall to talk
ing about the horse and bo take the
mind of the boy off the compulsory
Journey to Atlanta, for such things as
these do not constitute the pleasantest
memories of Tray mountain, nor of any
other mountain or valley whatsoever.
The boy will conduct you cheerfully.
If not gayly, along the road, and In a
little while you will henr the hens cack
ling in Miss Pruett's horse lot. This will
give the Ind an excuse to run on ahead
of you. He will exclaim, with as much
energy as his plaintive voice can com
mand: "Oh, Lordy! them plegged dogs Is
done run the ol' dominlcker hen off'n
Whereupon he will start to running
and pretend to go to the horse lot. But
it Is all a pretense, for when you come
In sight of the house you will see three
or four, maybe a half dozen, white
headed children on the fence watching
for you, and If you have said arklnd
word to the boy who volunteered to be
your guide Mrs. Pruett herself will be
standing on the porch, the right arm
stretched across her ample bosom, so
that the hand may serve as a rest for
the elbow of the left arm. which Is bent
so that the reed stem of her beloved
pipe may be held on a level with her
good-humored youth. You will have
time to notice, as your horse ascends the
Incline that lends to the big gate, that
the house is a very comfortable one for
the mountains, neatly weather-boarded
sW eomtmetlv built, with four rooms
and a "shed," which serves as a dining
room and kitchen . Two box wood
plants stand sentinel Inside the gnte,
and are, perhaps, the largest you have
ever seen. There is also a ragged hedge
of privet, which seems to lack thrift.
A little later you will dNcover why
matters and this gs at Mrs. Pruett's are
ordered somewhat differently from
those that prevail at other mour.ta'n
homes with which you may chance to
be acquainted. Mrs. Pruett herself is
not native and to the manner born,
though you would never discover It
until she told you: and this Informa
tion will not be long delayed. You will
find that she was born In Jasper ciun-
ty, that her father moved to the Chero
kee country after she was grown, and
that she married Mr. Pruett, who,, af
ter many ups and downs, settled on
Tray mountain, "an' done mighty well
tell the govem-nvnt got to b grudgln'
poor folks the little bit er money they
made by turnln the'r apples an' the'r
gral Into sperrets."
But tlils is running ahead fas'er than
the boy did .and you can't do tliat com
fortably in a buggy drawn by a tired
and hungry horse. The most you can
do is to drive within easy hailing dis
tance, take off your hat to the mother-

, THE HOUSE.
ly figure on the porch, and Inquire if
you can get a bunch of fodder for your
horse and a glass of buttermilk for
yourself. Mrs. Pruett wli. turn first
to the right and then to the left. See
ing no one but the children, she will
call out, In a penetrating but not un
"Where on the face of the yeth Is
Sary's Tom?" Forth from the house
will come the boy you met on the road.
"Can't you move?" Mrs. truett will
say. "Yander's the stranger a-wond-erln'
an' a-reck'nln' what kind of a
place he's come to, an' here's ever'body
a-standin' aroun' an' a-star-gazln' an
a-BUckln' the'r thumbs. Will you stir
'roun,' Tom, er shlll I go out an' take
the stranger's hoss? Ax 'im to come
right in an', here! you M'randy! fetch
out that big rockln'-cheer!"
It Is safe to say that you will enjoy
everything that Is set before you; you
will not complain even If the meat Is
fried, for the atmosphere of the moun
tain fits the' appetite to the fare. If
Mrs. Pruett likes your looks you will
catch her in an attitude of listening for
something. Finally, you will hear a
shuffling sound In one of the rooms,
sb if a man were moving about, and
then, if it Is Mrs. Pruett's old man"
and she well knows by the sound
she'll lift her voice and call out: "Jerd!
what on the face of the yeth air you
doln' In there? You'll stumble an'
break some er them things In there
threckly. Why don't you come out an'
show yourse'f? You hain't afeard er
nothln' ner nobody, I hope."
Whereupon Mr. Pruett will come out
a giant In height, with a slight stoop
In his shoulders and a pleasant smile
on his face. And he will give you a
hearty greeting, and his mllu blue eyes
will regard you so steadfastly that you
will wonder why Mrs. Pruett asked him
If he was afraid of anybody. Later,
you will discover that his Inquiry Is a
standing Joke with his wife, for Jerd
Pruett Is renowned in all that region as
the most dangerous man in the moun
tains when his temper is aroused
Fortunately for , him and his neigh
bors, he has the patience of Job.
You will And on closer acquaintance
with Jerd Pruett that he Is a man of
considerable Information In a great
many directions, and that he Is
possessed of a large, fund of common
sense. Naturally the talk will drift to
the murder ol the . young woman by
Toog Parmalee. If you don't mention
it, Mrs. Pruett will, for she has her own
ideas In regard to the tragedy.
"What' bred in the bone will come
out In the blood," she will say. "Crasyl
why Toog Parmalee wern't no more
crazy when he kilt Sally Williams than
Jerd there an' much he looks like be
In' crasyl" '
And then Mm. Pruett will hark back
to oWiimes, and tell a story that 'has
some curious points of interests "It 4s
a long story the way she tells It, but It
will bear condensation.
Eveythlng seems to be a circle wlth-
In a circle. The circle may be too large
or too small to be visible to the naked
eye. but it is there nevertheless. In
deed. It is so much a part of our nature
and tastees that they all unite In declar
ing that the curved line a definite part
of the circle Is the line of beauty. Well,
the large circle that we are pleased to
call time in the hope that under that
name it will become a straight line and
so take us away from many things that
are disagreeable and perplexing
brings with it a certain stated and un
varying periods (if we but knew how to
measure t hem rightly, the noxious In
fluences which, when they culminate
we term war.
It was In the sixties, as time goes,
when these noxious influences culmi
nated in this vast nursery of manhood,
the American republic. Borne of us
have already forgotten what the bother
was about, never having had very clear
ideas as to the occasion of so much des
peration. Nevertheless It will be a long
time before some of the details and de.
velopments are wiped from our memo
ries. As good luck would have It. Tray
mountain was out of the line of march,
so to speak. The great circle encircled
it, to be sure, but the noxious vapors
were thinner here than elsewhere, so
that Tray elbowed its way skyward
In perfect peace and security, and
would hardly have known that the
war was going on but for one event
which came like an explosion on the
quiet neighborhood. The echo of the
explosion, Mrs. Pruett claims, was not
heard until Toog Parmalee's pistol
went off close to his sweetheart's bosom
and that was only the other day.
Now, the war began gently enough
and went along easily enough so far ns
Tray mountain was concerned. Its
sunsets were not more golden nor Its
wonderful dawns rosier on that ac
count. The thunders that shook
Manassas, and Malvern Hill, and Gettys
burg gave forth no sounds In the crags
of Tray. If the truth must be told,
there are no crags nearer than those of
Yonnh, or those which lift up and form
the chasm of Tallulah, for Tray Is a
commonplace, drowsy old mountain,
and It does nothing but sit warming Its
sway back in the sun or cooling It in the
But Tray mountain had one attrac
tion. If no other, and the name of this
attraction was Loorany Parmalee. In
a moment of high good humor, Mrs.
Pruett remarked that "ef Jerd had any
fault in the world It was In beln' too
good." Paraphrase this tender tribute,
and It would fit Loorany Parmalee to a
T. If she had any fault it was in being
too handsome. But beauty, it must be
borne in mind, is a relative term when
yoy employ it in a descriptive sense. No

doubt Loorany would have cut a very
unfashionable figure In a group of
beautiful girls dressed according to the
demands of fashion. She lacked the
high color and the lines that are pro
duced by contact with refining Influ
ences: but on the mountain In her own
neighborhood she was a cut or a cut
and a half above any of the rest of the
girls. Her eyes were as black as coals
and latent heat sparkled in their depths.
Her features were regular, and yet a
little hard, her under-lip being a trifle
too thin, but she had the sweetest smile
and the whitest teeth ever seen on Tray
mountain. Her figure well, her figurs

the leisure as well as the material in
Loorany's case, and the result was that

All this is mentioned with proper re

Tor conflicting views and opinions.
"Everybody to their taBte." as the old
woman said who kissed the cow anj
left her spectacles and one eye hanging
on a horn. If those who admire the
fanciful toggery that fashion Insists on
had seen Loorany Parmalee when she
was driving the cows home, chunking
old Brlndle and using a good deal of
language with a good deal of laughter
or, worse still, when she was digging
for a woodchuck, and trying to keep the
dogs from tearing the creature all to
flinders, they would have laughed at the
suggestion that she was beautiful
enough to be put in a picture.
But Just reflect over the matter a
minute. How many pictures of note,
ancient or modern, contain figures that
are dressed fashionably? Count on
your lingers leaving out portraits
and give the number. If you live to be
a thousand years old you'll never get
to your thumb In a count of that kind.
And now as to portraits; can you mus
ter a dozen painted by masters of the
art in which the painter has not struck
a blow at frills and furbelows by in
venting costumes and draperies to suit
his own ideas of what is beautiful?
But this Is bordering on argument,
and, In a matter of this kind, argument
always weakens the case of those who
employ-lt. The whole contention comes
to this In the end; that. In the right
light, and in the foreground of a
bowlder, with a roguish streak of
sunshine whipping across her black
hair, her sunbonnet hanging between
her shoulders, her right hand lifted as
If listening, her lips half parted, and a
saucy smile dancing In her eyes, no
artist In our day and time has ever con
ceived a lovelier picture than Loorany
Parmalee made. To And It counter
part, you will have to hark back to the
romantic rascals who laid on the color
in old times.
Anyhow, Loorany's beauty was

every year on Taylor's Range, a small
supr that seemed to have been sent
down by Tray to Inform the Vale of tho

To this meeting In 1863 came Hlldreth
of Hall and his kinsmen. Hither also
came a number of people from Hatch's
Clearing, and among them Loorany
Parmalee. The old people had come to
pray, but the youngsters had come to
frolic, and the gayest of all was Loor
any Parmalee. Here were girls from
the villages roundabout, as well as girls
from the valley, and some of these
made believe to laugh at Loorany, but
the laugh was against them when tlMy
saw the boys and young men nocking
after her. Mrs. Pruett had more than
half promised to keep an eye on Loor
any, and she did her best, but how
can a pious, maimed lady keep up with

more like one than at any other stage
of her existence? Mrs. Pruett tried
good humoredly to put a curb on Loor
any, but the lass laughed and shook
tie bridle off, and no wonder, consider
ing the weakness of human nature.
She was beginning to taste the sweets
of her first real conquest, for here was
Hlldreth of Hall, the finest young fel
low of the lot, following her about like
a dog and running hither and yon to
please her whims and fancies.
It is true that John Wesley Mllllrons
had been casting sheep's eyes at her for
several years, hanging around the
house on Sunday afternoons and rid
ing with her to church on Sundays;
but what of that? Wasn't John Wes

And did he ever see the day that he
was as polite, or as quick to fetch and
carry, or as nimble with his tongue as

So Mrs. Pruett watched Loorany gal
lanting around with Hildreth. of Hall,
and all the oth r chaps ready to take his
place, except John Wesley MUlirons,
who sat in the shade and made marks In
the sand with a twig. Mrs. Pruett
watched all this, and gravely shook her
head. And yet the head-shaking was
good-humored anil lenient. If Mrs.
Pruett had been asked at the time why
he shook her head she couldn't have
told. She said afterwards that she
knew why she shook her head, and she
was inclined to plume herself on her
foresight. But you know how people
are. If matters had gone on smoothly
or even if Loorany had been like other
girls Mrs. Pruett would have forgot
ten all about that fact that she shook
her head when she saw the lass gal
lanting around with Hildreth of Hall.
Mrs. Pruett had a "tent" on the camp
ground a small cabin roughly, but
very comfortably fixed up. and she
stayed the wevk out. So did Loorany.
So did Hildreth. or Hall. But along
