EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
OCTOBER 2, 1874

WEIGHED IN THE BALANCE
Nobody knew but Jane was just as happy as the others who danced chorus jigs and college hornpipes; nobody ever would have known. Sometimes there was a preacher on the circuit, who went about them one Number to another, holding meetings, and Cyrus and his mother and Jane put on their best and went the rounds, too; and Cyrus and Agnes helped at the singing and lingered after the benediction. One week the preacher stayed at Ferriston Farm and asked Jane to marry him; and, though Mrs. Ferriston was sorry to part with her, yet she advised Jane to think seriously, and went so far as to get Cyrus to talk with her about it. This was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Jane was sick in bed till the preacher left The Numbers.
“Dear sakes!” said Mrs. Ferriston, “if it’s going to keel Jane over like this every time she has a beau, the fewer the better. Girls didn’t use to take it to heart so.” “On the whole,” remarked Cyrus, “I’m glad she didn’t take to him. It’s selfish, but how could we get on without her just yet?”
“I suppose you’ll be bringing’ a wife home one of these days. It’s a pity you couldn’t hev taken a likin’ to Jane yourself, and she right handy in the house and knowin’ all your ins and outs, and no fault to find.”

“Choose the one that you love best,
Suit yourself and you’ll suit the rest,”
sang Cyrus, “Jane wouldn’t have me, either.” “That’s for you to say,” returned his mother, thinking that the girl was un-born who would refuse her Cyrus. Well, at one time they had Miss Agnes Price up at Number One to make a visit, and to let her see how the land lay; and at first words weren’t big enough to express her satisfaction. She used to laugh at Jane’s old-fashioned way of dressing her hair and cutting her gown, and when Jane and Cyrus got talking upon their favorite themes she would put on her bonnet and be off for a walk, and Cyrus would naturally follow without delay.
