Early History of Cloud County
By H.E. Smith
An Engineer's Yarn
One night I was delayed by an unexpected break-down in gearing, and stayed in my cellar long after the girls, the clerk and the fireman had gone, hard at work tinkering at the engine. No one was in the factory but Harkness and myself. I do not think he suspected my presence. As I was taking off my overalls and fixing up, I heard a heavy dray come up to our door. There were four or five men with it, who were not our regular cartmen. They jumped out, were let in through the half-closed doors of the main floor above me, and were led up stairs by Harkness. Presently they reappeared, bearing cases of various kinds of stock, fancy paper, gilding stuff, light machinery, and different odds and ends, with which they loaded the dray and then drove off again.
All was done in such a quiet, mysterious way, that it was evident that something wrong was being done. What could it be? The men were not robbers, for there was Mr. Harkness, and he sole owner of the factory. A man does not commit a larceny on his own property. I couldn't make it out at all.
I started to go. Just as I entered the office from below, Harkness came in by the passage-way door from the floor above. He started perceptibly when he saw me, but instantly regained his composure, and said, as cool as you please.
"Ah! You're late, Bill. What's wrong today? Hope you won't blow us up for a week or so yet. We're doing a staving business, Bill." (I think I see him now "washing his hands with invisible soap in imperceptible water," with that self-satisfied, hypocritical leer on his face.) "Just sent a load of fine boxes down to the Winged Arrow. She sails to-morrow, so we had to ship in a hurry. Fine boxes; and a beautiful vessel, Bill. Good night to you."
"Good night, sir," said I, and left.
