EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
An Old Man's Story
I being a good skater and fond of the sport, promised to be there. So, leaving me a card of invitation, also one for Jasper and Myrtella, he passed on his way.
My sober reason having in a measure returned, I went back to the homestead, resolving to invent or await some means of revenge. I assumed a gaiety that I was far from feeling, as I handed the cards of invitation to my brother and cousin.
The latter exclaimed with delight, "Oh, I am so gad! I dearly love skating, and we'll be sure to be there." So it was decided that we would add ourselves yes to the number on the morrow; and, after a night of confused and horrid dreams, I joined my brother and cousin on the way to the scene of our anticipated sport.
We were soon upon the broad, smooth surface of the Hudson River. A race was proposed between Jasper and James Burnham, who were reputed to be the best skaters on the ground; the distance to be three miles; the winning post to be a point of rocks a short distance above Morton Homestead; the prize to be a pair of silver-mounted skates. The judges were to be the three ladies, of whom my cousin Myrtella was one.
The preliminaries being settled, away flew the skaters, myself included, followed as fast as we could go, to note the race; but after the half-way point was passed nearly all had been distanced except myself and three or four others. The contestants had up to this, kept well together, neither seeming to have advantage over the other; but now Jasper was perceptibly falling to the rear. When two-thirds of the distance had been accomplished, there was a sharp bend, or curve, in the river, and, in order to gain on his opponent, Jasper took the inside of the curve, near the bank, and was straining every nerve in the race, when, with a cry of horror that I shall remember to my dying day, he disappeared from sight! He had skated into an air-hole in the ice.
