EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Mad in Spite of Himself
He rose, brushed away the chill drops of perspiration from his forehead, and was just replacing the crimson silk pocket handkerchief in its resting place when he was suddenly grasped from behind and thrown skillfully upon the ground.
"Well, we've caught you at last, my hearty," said a burly man who stood over him while another had bound both his hands and feet together before he could find words or breath to remonstrate. "You thought you were going to give us the slip, hey? Come, it isn't worthwhile to cut up like that, you know, unless you want the straight-jacket brought out."
"Sraight-jacket!" gasped Tripler. "What do I want of a straight-jacket!" "Where are you taking me to?" "To the asylum, to be sure, where you'd have been two hours ago if you hadn't been a little too spry for the stage driver and your keeper."
Light began to dawn on the troubled chaos of Mr. Tripler's much bewildered mind. "It's all a mistake, my good fellows—a ridiculous mistake," he exclaimed, "I'm not a madman!" "No, of course not; we know you're not," responded the larger of the two, with a wink to his companion—"Drive on, Tom."
"But I am not, indeed; you are mistaking me for somebody else—a man who just forced me to exchange hats and coats with him, and went down into the woods—he is the madman." "Oh, no—I guess not," said the big keeper, with a fearful attempt at pleasant irony.
"My good men,  you are laboring under some very singular delusion," remonstrated the victim, trying to speak plainly between the jolting of the wagon and his own excitemet. "I am Mr. Nathan Tripler, of No.-, John Street.
"Oh, yes," said the keeper, lighting a cigar, "yesterday you was Napoleon Bonaparte, and today you are Nathan Tripler, and tomorrow—likely as not—you'll be the King of Sandwich Islands. I've heard this kind of talk before."
Tripler's heart began to stand still with undefined horror. Was this a hideous dream? Or was he to be actually immured within the high stone walls of the asylum he had so often walked past with a feeling of dread and horror beyond description, the life-long victim of some scarce credible mistake? In vain he reasoned, argued, protested; his words fell on the unheeding ears of his two conductors like drops of rain pattering on the stony surface of Table Rock, until at length he was carried—more dead than alive—into a narrow apartment at the end of a long row of similar ones.
