Early History of Cloud County
By H.E. Smith

In A Tunnel
"I can get it out quick as a wink, child," she continued, eagerly, settling her spectacles, and spreading out a soft silk handkerchief, with the intention of applying it to Ruth's eye.
"No, thank you. It is nothing," said Ruth, hastily popping the glass back to its hiding place. Thus foiled, the old lady relapsed into silence, although she could not remain quiet long. She jerked her head about quickly to observe different objects with a sparrow-like motion, and becoming absorbingly interested in Ruth, she peered at the trimmings, even testing the quality of a ribbon furtively with a critical fore-finger and thumb. Age had chiseled wrinkles, innumerable fine lines, in the intelligent face, had whitened the scanty hair, and robbed the sunken mouth of teeth, yet the vital forces seemed unimpaired. She was like a queer little gray bird hopping along to peck a crumb of information everywhere.
"I wonder who she is and where she's goin'?" pondered the old lady, her busy brain having unsuccessfully twisted Ruth around the whirlingwheel of minute investigation. Then she bobbed abruptly, and skipped into the seat beside the object of her interest with an apologetic, "Guess I'll change my place, if you don't mind, and get out of the draught from that winder. Old folks have to be kinder keerful about draughts."
Miss Mayhew graciously assented, and her neighbor was delighted with the success of her stratagem. "Live in these parts?" small, beady eyes twinkling all over her companion interrogatively.
"Yes. Have you come far?" "Far! I guess so! I left my darter's home in Indianny day afore yesterday. My son-in-law, Marthy's husband, is a lumber merchant, you know, out West. Yes, the winter's been cold, some. We had Bible classes and lectures, and once there came a panoramy of New York. Jabez took me. Hev you been there? Most as good as seeing it for yourself, the panormay was. Come home alone? Law, yes! Made my way along as easy as could be. I stopped over night at Montreal in Canady at a great hotel, and the clerk gave me a snug little room so's I felt real to hum. There's a big bridge – the victory bridge, they call it there. I see it. I've been a good piece on the Grand Turk Railroad, too."
