Early History of Cloud County
By H.E. Smith

In A Tunnel
Nevertheless, a sigh welled up from her heart when she gazed in the glass, not altogether in unreasonable dissatisfaction with her present appearance; still he past had had disappointments, and the future with Aunt Harriet was without promise. Away back in the vista of summers she beheld herself a fanciful girl, building cloud-castles out of the sun-set glories. One print-time was brighter and fairer than the others; around it still bloomed flowers of regretful memories, blossoms without earthly semblance in the cold, bleak climate where Ruth lived, because sprung from the richest sources of humanity.
A brave young missionary had urged a heedless girl to go with him to the hot countries among the heathen, and the girl, to whom the world seemed a vast treasure-house lavish of gifts, had flouted her young missionary, and he had silently departed without complaint, to return no more. Then Ruth had shed tears in secret, bitterly remorseful tears, and turned her back capriciously on the well-to-do farmers of her acquaintance.
"Got a cinder in yer eye?" inquired a sharp voice in our traveler's ear.
The latter awoke from her reverie with a start, and turned to her questioner with a guilty blush suffusing her cheek. She, Ruth Mayhew, of middle age, caught looking in the glass! Her interlocutor was a brisk, bright little old lady in a faded shawl and an antiquated bonnet of the coal-scuttle pattern. She carried on her arm a black silk bag which seemed to contain unlimited stores of snuff and peppermint drops. Encircling her withered throat was a necklace of beautiful gold beads delicately wrought. These beads, an heirloom in her family, descending to her through long generations, had been worn by her since early youth, and so much of superstition was associated in the mind of the possessor with such relies, that the old lady would have dreaded immediate misfortune had she lost them. Such was her child-like faith in her fellow-creatures that she never dreamed of parting with her treasures.
