EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
In a Tune
"That will do nicely," said Ruth Mayhew, receiving her last package through the car window from Mr. Perkins on the platform.
"Write us how you get along, Ruth. If your aunt can spare you a spell this summer we'd be glad to see you hum agin. Oh, my! Here's Miss Curtin with a bunch of posier from her gardin Hurry! Hurry! You'll be late, sure's the world, Miss Curtin."
This spoke the group at the depot in shrill chorus as the locomotive, every plate burnished and dazzling which had simmered quietly for some minutes, started, imparting a jerking wrench to the cars, and then the long snake of a train glided smoothly away.
"She takes it first rate," commented Mr. Perkins, wiping his brow with a rod bandana handkerchief.
Then he climbed into his rusty carry-all, drawn by a meek white horse; the others returned along the village street to resume their usual avocations, and the event of the day was over.
Ruth Mayhew had departed from the home of her youth, and the place would know her no more forever.
The struggle had been a hard one, but she bore it well as Mr. Perkins averred. She did not look at once at the white house on the hill, where death had robbed her of parents and shelter, because even her fortitude could not be trusted to witness the Smalls moving in. What was before her? Life with Aunt Harriet in a close sick-chamber, slave of an invalid's caprices and grateful for daily bread. Oh, the long, dreary years with nothing but old age in advance!
She took a small pocket mirror from her bag, and gazed pensively into its depths. The reflected image was by no means unattractive. She was not as she had once been, yet her features were good, her complexion fresh, her eyes clear, and her physique robust. More-over she was carefully and becomingly attired, and her chignon was of the latest style.
