EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
Serving The Writ
Mr. Grimp colored slightly. "I think you misunderstand me, Brother Butterfield;  only used the expression in a general sense, without allusion to you, whom I know to be a man with clear ideas of justice, or else the community had not placed you in so responsible a position."
The Squire's testiness at once dsappeared, the smile came back, and he bowed in complacent acquiescence. "But to return to my business," continued Mr. Grimp. "You doubtless know Mrs. Barney!" "What, widow Barney?" and the complacent look immediately gave place to an unusual flush on the questioner's face.
"Yes, I believe she is a widow. Her husband—poor man—became somewhat involved before he died; but may we hope in a better world he has discovered the things of earth to be but vanity and vexation of spirit. Like us all, Brother Butterfield, he brought nothing into the world, and it is certain he carried nothing out."
"I suppose not, as you got the hull on't," answered the Squire, altogether misinterpreting Mr. Gimp's moralizing. "Ahem! Ah, yes! I presume you allude to the foreclosing of a mortgage I held on his place. It was truly unpleasant for me to do it, but duty to my children, so lately deprived of a mother, impelled me. As the Scripture says, "If any provide not for his own, especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith and is worse than  an infidel."
"Better had some keer for other folks' orphans as well," muttered the Squire; but Mr. Grimp did not hear, and proceeded.
"Well, at the sale of Mr. Barney's place I bought it in and since then I have let Mrs. Barney have it at a nominal rent—at a mere nominal rent, I assure  you, Brother Butterfield. It is as about that I have called.
"The long and short on't is she hain't paid the rent and you want her put out?" "Well—yes and no. I wish steps taken in that direction, but not to extremes. I would like the process issued, but have final measures kept in abeyance, as I think the matter may be amicably arranged.
