EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E.SMITH
An Old Man's Story
Myself, with three or four others, were close behind, and, with cries of alarm, we rushed to the spot. He was nowhere to be seen. A large crowd was soon gathered, while I, with the demon of revenge in my heart, secretly rejoiced at the accident, with the hope that he never would be discovered.
We searched, but it was fruitless; we never saw him again. The strong current had undoubtedly carried him quickly far beyond our help.
All now was confusion and distress; our pleassant party had ended in sorrow. Our lady judges, hearing that something had occurred to prevent the fulfillment of the race, now came up to where the crowd was assembled. Upon hearing the dreadful news, Myrtella fell into a death-like swoon, and, in this condition. was carried to the homestead, where she lay a long time at death's door. When she finally recovered her reason had fled, and it was deemed advisable to confine her in a lunatic asylum.
My father, already weakened by age and disease, soon fell a victim to this double sorrow, and in one short month was sleeping with his fathers. And I-O, heavens! What had I gained? To be sure, I was now a rich man, for I inherited all my father's wealth; but a reaction had taken place.
I mourned for my lost brother. I cursed myself for being his murderer; for in my heart I felt guilty of his death, and of my cousin's sad condition.
My own love, Myrtella—heaven bless her pure spirit!—is with the angels. Her reason never returned. She would pace her narrow cell, and cry, "O Jasper, my love! My lost, lost love!"—until her Maker said, "It is enough; come up higher." I am now a lonely old man. I shall soon see those  who have gone before; for, with my peace made with heaven, I shall welcome the summons.
