EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Mad in Spite of Himself
It was lighted and ventilated by an iron grating in the door, with a corresponding window high up on the wall, and furnished with only a narrow couch and a stand built into the wall; and there, Mr. Nathan Tripler, released from his confining bonds, was left to enjoy the uninterrupted society of his own cheerless meditations.
"It can't be possible! I must be asleep and dreaming!" thought Nathan. But it was possible, and he never was wider awake in his life. Toward evening a pitcher of water and a piece of bread were dealt out to him. Mr. Tripler ate it under a sort of mental protest, to relieve the gnawing sensation of faintness that was at his vitals.
"What would I not give for one of Dorothy's hot biscuits," thought the wretched captive. "My poor little Dorothy! I have been too hard upon her. Suppose I should die without being able to tell her how ashamed I am of having been such a brute. It was not the dry bread that choked Nathan Tripler just then—it was the humiliating sense of his own sins and short comings.
Next morning it was bread and water again. Nathan thought of Dorothy's despised coffee and grumbled-at steak.
"I've deserved it," thought Nathan, "there is no mistake about that. Poor darling little Dorothy! How her heart is aching for me now. I wish I could stroke down her hair just once. Oh, it's hard to be treated so, even though I know I'm served exactly right. If I ever get out of this hole alive, Dorothy will find me a changed man."
The confused current of his thoughts was just eddying vaguely through his mind when there was a sound of steps and voices in the corridors without.
"I suppose they're going to put on a straight waistcoat now," thought Mr. Tripler, with a resigned air. "Well, there is nothing left for me but to endure. I don't think I'm mad; but how long I shall hold out sane under this interesting concatenation of circumstances is rather a doubtful question.
