EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
CAUGHT BY WOLVES
By H.E. Smith
“All right; I’ll borrow a gun of the Elder, and I’ll ride home with you. Pop Watkins has borrowed my turnout to take his wife home with, for his girls want their sleigh to their own company.” Harry again seemed much more philosophical and don’t-carish than Jeff had anticipated, and the young joker went off to find the Elder.
His request for a gun was received with a degree of sober acquiescence that was an awful cooler on the fun of the thing, and the old man said, as he brought out an enormous old “deer-gun” and the ammunition to match:
“Jeff, my boy, yer right. We folks right around the lake ain’t in no danger, but I wouldn’t like to be caught tonight betwixt there and square without weapons. That ’are old iron throws a grist o’ lead.” Jeff inwardly acquiesced as he looked down the capacious double-throat of the big gun, and wondered. “If the old thing kicked very bad.”
When the time came, as it soon did, for the “bee” to break up, the moon was shining brightly among the frosty trees and on the snowy hillsides, and everything was propitious for a ride home. And yet, not only Jim and Maggie, but Harry and Annie, felt as if the whole occasion had been one of cross-purposes and misunderstandings.
Just then, however, they had a special subject of conversation in hand, for half the talk among the women in the dressing-room at the Elder’s, had been about the wolves and their—doings, and both the girls were well satisfied with the forethought which gave them an armed escort.
The first few miles were quickly skimmed over, Jim Oakes, with his lighter load, gaining so steadily that he was half the time out of sight, ahead, in the windings of the road. The fences were few and far between, and much of the way was through the open and now leafless forest.
Whatever may have been the current of talk between Jim and Maggie, it was suddenly brought to a disastrous termination before they had got half way to their destination. A little rise there was in the road and a rough jolt over it, and, as the quick strain came, snap went the fastening of the twills to the cutter.
